962 THE NEW YORK CLIPPER. November i Anecdotes, Personalities and Comments, COKCERNINO STAGE FOLK and Sometimes OTHERS BI JOSEPHINE OHO. Charles London Carter, the successful writer of thirty or more sketches and several plnye, recently received the following letter, which shows the confidence the writer, a young man, bad In his own ability: "Mr. Charles London Carter, deer sir. i was lookln' at a paper an aecn your add an 1 thot 1 would rite you a few lines. I am not an experience man but 1 am a comedln an I am a good one. I have never been on the stage only at the halls, But If my name was to aper on a Bill bord it would Draw a crowed, as I am well known In som places an 1 can eslly Be Broke In. I have a new Stile walk an dance in Cornicle work an if I am give a Chance I would do my best I can think up lota of apecbul neks. If you are pleased to be Intereated In this pleas anser soon as i Might get an ingagment soon with sumbodyelts. good by yours truly." (Signed) 9 O. Ed. Naftzger sends the following two or three bits from the West. This experienced actor, now with the Maud Henderson Stock Company, was at one time traveling through that part of the country with tie Felix Vincent Repertory Company. Among the plays on the list was "The Iron King." This was a play used only In an emergency, and the members of the troupe were not all letter perfect In the lines. By some mistake the advance man bad booked that bill for the first night of a week stand, and the company bad arrived in town too late for a rehearsal, so were obliged to go on and do their best—or their worst, as It proved to be. In vain did the manager, Mr. Vincent, walk the stage from entrance to entrance, "throwing" the actors their lines. The performance was bad, and they all knew it. Naftzger, who was tbe Colonel Retchel of for walking the distance waa a dangerous proceeding to blm, especially as he was known to carry money for the pay rolls c( the corporation he was working for, and that locality was Infested by negro roustabouts, This fact was a potent persuader to Cantwell that his best resort In the emergency was to use tbe pass. Accordingly he seated him- self In tbe smoker of the train and awaited, with some trepidation, the approach of the conductor. That official of tbe railroad soon came through, and the suspense of tbe future 1 honorable" was ended by a nod of approval, together with a word or two of pleasantly from that Important Individual. However, a few minutes later the conductor returned to tbe car, followed by a young man who wore a worried look. Then Cantwell, anticipating some complication regarding his use of tbe pass, began to be worried too. Hla anxiety greatly Increased wben the conductor said: "Mr. Editor, of course you know all the members of your staff?" "Naturally," replied tbe supposed editor, wondering what was coming next "Well, then," said the conductor, "this young man haa no money to pay bis fare, but says he's a reporter on your paper. If be is, why It's all right, and settlement can be made later." "Oh, yes," quickly replied Cantwell, with a breath of relief, "he's on the staff," then turning to the young man, who looked bis surprise at tbe turn things had taken, he sad: "How are you, Hammond?" This greeting was In the hearing of the conductor, who then passed on. When out of hearing the young man, with an accent that proclaimed the part of tbe country In which he had been raised, exclaimed: "By gad, Suh I you've done me a great service, Suh. My name Isn't'Hammond—It's FInckney, and I'm happy to make your ac- quaintance, Suh. ,1 happened to be out of money back here, and I just had to go to Mobile. I thought I'd risk saying I was on your paper. Now, why were you good enough to soy you recognized me?" "Well," laughingly confessed Cantwell, "I'm not tbe editor. I'm just traveling on h's pass. You can Imagine my anxiety wben IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT.
