One 4ay I found -myself, wo.ry of the quest and almost ready to give it up, approaching the threshold of a theater whose manager was held nisrh m the public esteem, on^,- to find the usual crowd ahead of me ??? young, old; sad, glad; all in their best array and with the object of their pursuit written plainly on their faces. My acquaintance with those in search of employment in the Dramatic Mart had become extensive in these hours of waiting, and one and all had confessed their individual reasons for choosing the stage as a career. There was a poor girl who must work for her living and could do nothing but dance: the sentimental creature who "felt" that she had a Career; the very young man who worshiped Shakespeare, and the in his past old one who lived war O.???

The Freedom Oil company of Norwalk, incorporated under the .laws of Delaware with a capital of $50,000, was organized here Wednesday with the following prominent men as officers: president, C. F. Jackson: vice president, Ed. L. Young; secretary, Lloyd Curtiss; assistant secretary, W. R. Pruner; directors, C. F. Jackson, Ed. L. Young, Lloyd Curtiss, A. V. Andrews, S. M. Young, George H. Gates, and ames eVrdin. The company owns a large acreage of oil land in -Freedom township, Wood county, and has several pro- dducing wells. ed to "walk on" for spending money; the girl who was bored and wanted something to do, and the young girl like myself who believed in a Future and was willing to suffer any hardships to achieve it. All my life I shall never forget the spectacle of these Waiting Ones. After an hour of waiting, my turn came and I presented myself to the Great Manager without a word. He looked me over as silently. "You \,-ish to act?" "Yes." "Why?" "Because I think ??? I am sure ?????? "' "Are your parents willing?" he interrupted. seeing in my face perhaps that my desire was a serious one. "Quite." "The work is very hard and you must begin /at the bottom," he said slowly. "Will %-ou take me?" breathlessly. "Yes. Come back tomorrow and sign your contract" He tore my name from the foot of my letter and put it on top of a pile of printed sheets beside him, dismissing me with a nod of the head. And so the first step was taken at last, and the long, rough road that-! lies for so many between the managers office and the stage door was ] at an end. . I. could scarcely realize it. I had actually got an engagement. ??? Corinne Parker in the Sep* tember Metropolitan ????????????????????????????????? 0 ????????? magazine. DOMESTICATION OF ZEBRAS. Small Coarte??l??n.

Smccc??*f*J. The Society of Arts in England pub^ lishes in its journal, with permission, a report to the British secretary of state for foreign affairs on the zebra domestication experiments in the Bast African protectorate^ by JRobert J. Stordy, veterinary officer to the Uganda and East African protectorate. Explaining the stockade, or boma, for the capture of the animals, Mr. Stordy says that its construction employed 50 hands for the space of nine weeks. On. the side of the river remote from the boma it was considered necessary to build an arm of cut trees, to facilitate the driving of the zebra in the direction of the ford. It wa s hoped that upon the zebras entering the arm a capture would be effected, as they would be hemmed in between the arm on the one side and a steep hill backed by the river with precipitous banks on the other side, while the beaters behind would form a cordon from the hill to the arm. Thus the only available direc 45roTliatirt ???trfoud** where UM ttbras had HOoftM gnuting. At Uw Ma* ot the open plain Mar the river it waa seen that th* cordon Indoatd no lew than tour herd* of zebra*, a total of nearly 300 h??a4. At the cordon cloa*4 in the animals became panic-stricken, and one after another the four herdt charged through the line of beat??ra with an impetuosity that nothing could resist Our first attempt at capturing wild animals, which had opened so hopefully at daybreak, thus came to a disappointing close before eight a. m. The arm. composed of cut treep on the aorta side of the river, was increased in length from a quarter of a mile to nearly two miles. Frequent minor floods of the river deferred tnb next drive till last month. As the river was then very low, arrangements were made for a drive on a larger scale than before. It was hoped that 1,500 Masai could be supplied from the Nairobi district, in addition to the few hundreds to b?? obtained locally. It was expected that with tMs large la- crease in the number of beaters the ???zebras would not attempt to break through, as they did on the first occasion. It was with considerable disappointment that I heard the night before the drive that no Masai could be sent from Nairobi. However, as all arrangements had been. made, it was resolved to make an attempt next morning with the 400 to 500 Masai who had been collectedly Mr. Wise. As before, the beaters were collected at the Gilgil river on the evening previous to the drive. Much was expected from the six mounted Europeans, i. e., Messrs. Alien. Bagge. Collyer, Routledge. Story and myself, whose aim to beep the zebras on the run and allow them no time to concert offensive tactics. Messrs. Archer and Salmon, on foot, took charge of the Masai beaters. A start was made at daybreak, and the line of beaters immediately put up about 100 zebras and drove across the plain toward the^arm. As they approached it the nerd, which, as usual, was led by an old stallion, broke away In the direction of the railway line and actually got outside the cordon. A piece ot'fine riding by Mr. Alien, ably seconded by Messrs. Bagge and Routledge. resulted in the herd being headed back again into the line of beaters. At the far side of the plain I had managed to drive a small herd of 12 or 14 head into the arm. and it was my endeavor to keep the herd within the ana until the line of beaters had closed up the entrance. Our satisfaction may be imagined when the large herd, which had been headed back, got the wind of the small herd and themselves entered the arm at full gallop, closely pursued by the Horsemen and Masai. As they approached the river they became suspi- cieoe, and, returning at ..the gallop, made a final attempt to rush the beaters, but were driven back with a liberal expenditure of blank ammunition on the part of the' Masal irregulars from Nai- vasha station. Turning around, they made straight for the ford, crossing it without hesitation. The ford was then :losed in with posts, the boles for which had been previously dug and filled up with grass. Subsequent counts showed the number of animals to be 85. Two foals have since been born in the boma, and the old and young are becoming wonderfully tame. They now frequently graze within a few feet of the tents in which my men are encamped, which have have con ly we shall be able to start the handling and breaking of the youns animals.

The beaters were informed that it was between these two points that the animals must be driven. Arrangements were made for our first zebra drive to take place on the morning of the 8th of October last.
