At that point the man from Milwaukee was to put on the gorgeous re ties of the prince and go on to the stage after the princess had gone to sletr, on the couch. The actor who played the prince agreed to help out the love in his impromptu rote by standing in the wings and singing the tenor sole-- by the sound of which the princess was awakened. Then, when the princess awoke and sat up to greet her prince, she would see for the first time the face of her faithful lover from Milwaukee and would be in duty bojmd to rush into his open arms. That orl of thing, it was figured, would cert iln ly realize the most romantic dreams of the runaway high school girl. The scheme was carried out, an I 11 worked perfectly.

Her eyes were closed and her regular breathing closely imitated the evidences of sleep. On then came the bogus prince the man from Milwaukee. So far as looks go Mr. Engel declares that he had the regular prince beaten to a finish. He was a gorgeous and a splendid prince. ClJse to him in the wings stood the leal prince and sang his tenor solo more sweetly than he had ever sung it before. Presently tue princess awoke. She started up and looked into the face of the lover whom she had not seen for pearly a year. But she was a thoroughbred.

The younger girl especially proved to be extremely clever, and Mr. Engel was glad to give them both an engagement. The little girl soon became a general favorite with everybody connected with the theater. Not only was she quick to learn and a good singer, but she went out of her way to do kind things for other stage people who got into trouble. Mr. Engel was especially attracted by the child she was not yet 18 and he tried to find out as much as he could of her past life, with the idea of writing to her people and suggesting that they take their daughter off the stage. But in spite of his continued efforts he found out little only that the girl came from Milwaukee. Nellie," se said to her one evening, where do your parents live? In Milwaukee?

In the course of two months the pretty young girl had been promoted to a principal part in the burlesque of "Beauty and the Beast. She was the sleeping beauty, and it was her duty to lie apparently asleep in soft, white robes on a couch of gold, until she was awakened Dy the coming of the prince. Then she sprang up with a cry of joy and ran into his arms. She made a dainty little princess and her scene with the prince was always a hit with the house. One morning a big, young man called on Manager Engel. He was accompanied by an elderly woman dressed in black. He introduced himself as a wholesale sausage manufacturer of Milwaukee. The elderly woman whom he was escorting was the mother of Mr. Engels fairy princess. According to the story told him by the pair the girl had graduated from the She high school the previous June. had been engaged to marry the big, yellow-hairemaker of sausages. Suddenly one day she disappeared, leaving behind her two letters, one for her mother and the other for the man she was to marry. To her mother she wrote that she was going away to make a name for herself on the stage and that she would keep her whereabouts a secret until she had shown her fitness for a dramatic career. To her lover she wrote releasing him from their engagement. She could not bring herself to settle down as the wife of a mere sausage maker. She must have some romance, some color in her life. She was not good enough for him anyhow. He would easily find a girl who could make him much happier than she could ever hope to do. And soron. In some way, the details of which Mr. Engel has forgotten, the two traced the girl to New York and to his theater. Now they wanted his help In getting her to go home with them. He gladly gave it, though the success of their plan meant to him the loss of fair-haire- d d Device.

He believes that such pensions should be limited In any state to three conditions: First, to persons who have never permanently abandoned their native state; second, to those who have paid taxes eince reaching manhood; third, to persona 80 or 85 years old.

Some years ago one of the most familiar figures in the streets of Dunfermline was a harmless,, man, simply known as Archie. Like most of his class, however, he had a good deal of sense and humor, and he was also a great stickler for what was proper. Consequently he made a point of going to church. One Sunday he proposed to attend SL Annes U. P. Kirk, but learned that a special collection was to be taken. He had no money, so what could he give? He took a walk up and down the street considering the matter. At last he saw a potato lying unheeded in the roadway. He picked it up and went to the church. Going forward to the plate, which stood at the door, he placed in it the potato, saying to the elder in charge, Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have give I thee. half-witte- d Came of Famous Family.
