(ONHBI.LV. od many year ago I was a rather amateur performer of Mparlor magic" and, through my liking for it nnd the purchase of apparatus, became acquainted with a number of professional magician, M men who In public called their art "prestidigitation" and privately referred to It aa hanky One of the brightest was panky." Charlie Hines, known to the public as Sheik RusUn. When 1 first met him, he vu scconi psnled and assisted on the atage by a very pretty woman, "the Prince who In private life had been Mr. Tom Brlgg. The Brlgg domestic hor-lao- n had been rather confined for her tastes, erhap a little gloomy by comparison with the fool light world a seen "from the front," but I fancy she was a tittle disillusioned already when I en countered her. Mr. Brlgg became Charlie stage assistant while her husband was away In Mesico a engineer of a railway or nine I never clearly knew which and when he learned of It, which was not until several months later, he took the matter so philosophically that It was thought he never would make any trouble about It. He had only espected to be gone ten nionUis when he went away; but having nothing particular to come back for when Ids home was broken up, he staid In Mexico nearly two years, and it was only on business account that he even then returned. Perhaps he would have gone off again without even thinklug of the woman who had dropped out of his life or the man to whom she had dropped hail he not taken some trouble making advice from Bacchus and when In a sufficiently ugly mood happened to notice an advertising poster bearing nlctures of Sheik Rustan and the Princess Gulnare, then performing In town. The stage door keeper tried to keep him out, but was promptly knocked down and Mr. Brlgg passed triumphant Almost Immebehind the scenes. diately he caught sight of Charlie on the opposite side of the stage just going on to do the goldfish trick, and with mischievous quickness put In practice an accomplishment which he had among the greasers the acquired throwing of the bowle knife. Fortunately It was a long throw across the stage, and though the aim was good and the knife flew point foremost in a most business-lik- e fashion, it force was so far spent by the time the target was reached that when it struck the convex button of a heavy goldfish dish In Charlies breast pocket It glaneed, darted off to one side and stuc quivering In the floor, without doing any more harm than cutting a long gash In the magicians coat. Before Mr. Briggs could do anything niort to make himself disagreeable. he was seised, and to avoid scandal, quietly put out of the bark door, with an admonition to go and sin Charlie and the no more. were very badly scared, Briggs and in their excitement frankly told me who the invader was, and the probable reason ne might have Imagined he had for his rudeness. Tho amusement season was nearly over and at my suggest- Gul-nare- until Mr. to Mexico went again, away Briggs which he did without making any effort to hunt them, so far aa they knew, and perhaps thought no more about them when he became sober. During the no more we heard three following years of Mr. Briggs. Then came a rumor that some jealous Mexican had fatally carved him, and the extreme probability of such a thing, added to its desirability point of view held by the Sheik and the Princess impelled credence to the story. The Shlek Ruslan made a great hit in Deadwood. His new variation on the old pistol trick" created a positive furore, for It was in itself really good, and the way he aorked up to It greatly Increased its effect. When about to perform It, he would expose the two ways In one in which it was formerly done. barrel of the pistol of those the apparent dropped Its I wid Into the performer's hand when he pressed a certain spring and the report, when the weapop was 1st- the fired, rame from what seemed to was other perthe ramrod socket. The formed by the use of bullets formed of plumbago, which were easily crushed the ramrod In loading, these sham bullets being substituted by slight of hand for the leaden ones. Having fully explained and Illustrated the old ways, Charlie would take apart the pistol he was alMiut to use, pass around separately lor Inspection It barrel, stock and lock, which would at Ills request be put tohandgether by some spectator. 1'hen a soild offered were bullets leaden ful of from which one marked by two or three persons would be dropped by one of them Into the barrel onto the charge of rammed home. To assure himself that been thorough which the ramming essential to his safety was lie explained he would press the bullet down firmly with the end of his baton, the pistol still remaining In the hands of the person who loaded It. Finally the holderof the weapon was allowed to fire at him point blank, and he would appear to have caught the bullet In his teeth. He had done the trick successfully at each performance for ten nights. Then his Waterloo came. A big, hirsute cowboy blazed away at him, and his yell of pain mingled willi the report of the pistol. The I nines of Ills right wrist had been shattered by the bullet, hopelesi'y disabling him f.ir life so far as any me re hanky panky" was concerned. The cowboy went up on the stage a... expressed his sympathetic regret for the unfortunate outcome of the trick, but did not deem it necessary to explain that suspecting the withdrawal of the marked bullet by the baton, he had slyly slipped another into the pistol, And only one spectator, recognizing him, knew It was not an acclflenl.

For some reason or other advertisers dont like to call a spade a spade. If they have any grievance against a rival, they usually talk about In general terms. But A. Schilling Si Co. of San Francisco are coming right out In the plainest kind of talk. They say that the teas most largely consumed In the United States are adulterated and falsely-coloreOne can't very well accuse this firm of misrepresentation ; for they have the highest possible standing In the trade, and what Is more their statements reflect not only upon teas sold by their rivals but upon a cheaper tea arid by themselves. We guest they will be believed. The Ruling Passion. The truth of that old saying about the ruling passion strong In death was exemplified the other night when a menu facturer of a certain well known patent medicine accidentally fell out of the window of a large apartment house near Central park.

('.his-.iKu- Menlo Park had come Thomas Alva Edison, the contriver of the flourescent screen, to he sure that his discovery worked properly for the benefit of a curious public that wanted to see Its own skeleton. Some hundreds of persons passed through the dark compartment and viewed the shadowy outline of their hones with emotion, varying from hilarious amusement to shrinking affright . The experiment worked without a hitch, except that once or twice the flourescent screen was pushed suf of place by the pressure of the hands against It, and the lights were turned on for a few minutes until the screen could hr set hack in place. An impatient crowd walled uulsice the dark chamber fur the performance to begin. Entrance was affected through a long passage lighted only by a dim and dark red light, which gave an effect of Egyptian mystery to the surroundings Oh, Is It going to be very awful?" Inquired the first woman who entered of her escort, and when presently she put her hand behind the cjeen and beheld the flesh melt into transparency she gave a little shriek and declared it was either wlthcraft or a trick, and that she didnt think it was right to do such things. As a rule the women underwent the operation with considerable trepidation, fully 10 per cent of them Inquiring anxiously of the assistants: Are yau quite sure it doesn't hurt?', One of them, after being repeatedly assured that there was no feeling, said, with some little heat: You neednt tell me that those rays can go clear through my hand and I not feel It. I have some nerves left, 1 can assure you." Then, loo, the women would Insist on removing their gloves, frequently keeping the line waiting for this purpose. A little object lesson In this matter was given by the assistant to a girl who apdelay while she pealed for a minute removed her right glove. Put it back on, madam," said one oi the men, and pul some coins In It If you have any handy. Tlila was done and the womans hand was placed hack oi the screen with a book three Inches thick between It and her eyes. When the ray was turned on, the coin and the bony formation of the hand was perfectly apparent. Something of a sensation was caused by a small child who burst Into tears upon seeing the bones of his owrn hand and refused to be comforted until he finally hfcthnught tfluiself ot a redeeming clii cumstance. If I look like that all over Inside," he said, snlffig as he was led away, I'm awful glad I ain't made of glass." Not five minutes afterward an elderly woman look one glance at a hand that was rather bony from the outside and a most remarkable exhibit Inside, and littral Into wild laughter, which presently developed Into a case of genuine hys terlcs. Next to her the mot upset person whe tried the screen was a rather pompous Individual, who, being led away at the side, couldn't si e the transparent effect and declared loudly that he couldnt see anything In that, puttin a tellers hand behind acluth and turnin alight on." Try It yourself," suggested the attendant, and, taking the mans hand, he pressed It against the screen. There was the whir of the machinery, the glow of the light, and then a whoop of dismay from the sufferer. Lemnie he yelled. Oh, my Go-1- ! go! And In the dark he knocked over two Inoffensive iectalor before finding the enirance and bolting through It like a scared rahlilt. Probably the most pleased visitor to the dark chamber was a man with a terribly mangled and distorted hand, which he held behind the screen with It was all the attendant weird effect. could do to get him to move on and give the rest a chance. Just look at that!" lie kept saying in I accents fairly trembling with pride. dont s'pose there's another hand like that In the United Slates. Finally they got him away by promising to photograph the member." The rest oi the electric show went on with the usual brilliant spectacular effect. Crowd watched the Erie canal trolley and heard the roar of Niagara and reveled in the display of light. There were comparatively frw wome.i there, but the average of good looks among those present was rtmarkahly high, a fact perhaps explained by the remark of a girl which the reporter overheard: No girl w ho hasnt got a good com plexlon dare come under this light.
