A TREACHEROUS FRIEND.

We have got a little friend at our
house; at least be came to ui at a frlond
and we ought not todittrutthlm, though
at time we are aoroly tempted to doubt
hit sincerity, lie la expensive, too, for
one o amall, and cost us almost a much
to keep blm as It would a grown-up man.
Ktlll we shelter blm and treat blm at
one ot tbo family and be la always with
ua. lie never goo out by himself, being
too tmalL lie U but a trifle over two
years old and bas not (fot bit first tooth.
Even at bit tender ago hi bands often
point to treachery and deceit, and some
times wo think be Is a spy and tool for
the people who Induced ut to take him.
Wbat Is still stranger be has a friend,
a rough-looking man, who comes to see
blm once a month with religious regu
larity. Although be never leaves our
house from onn year's end to another
this man seems to know blm better than
we do, and to him only will he unbosom
himself. When this mysterious man
comes they are busy and want more
light, but that Is only for a moment
and then It may become as dark at
Iladot for all they care. Tboy never
talk out loud.
Hut our little frlond is Intelligent
He bas a bright, clear face, and be al
ways keeps It, as well as bl band, free
from dirt, although he I Invariably in
the dirtiest part of the houso.
We havo on several occasions accused
blm of tattling to this mysterious friend
and of telling blm untruthful stories
about us, but he neither admits nor do
nios it lie Is not dumb by any means,
but exceedingly mum. He Is essy to
please, never complains of tbo cold, and
always seems to have plenty of covering
at night, though be has so little blood
that I think he would froexe up tight at
thirty degrees below zero.
Once or twice we thought we would
tend him away because we believed be
was a traitor, but be Is a great comfort
to us and we have kept blm. He was
perfectly willing to go. lie has one
bad habit be gets full, and then when
the mysterious friend comes to see blm
they have trouble between, them. He
does not drink whisky- Ho takes noth
ing but water, and takes It straight.
Hut even when full of that usually
harmless liquid bo is awfully disagree
able to every body.
The people who sent him to us have
never been near our house since be
tame. They are not our friends, that
we know, and we think that through the
mod I u in of this mysterious man our lit

A Woodward avenue dentist received
a rail the other morning from a couple
whom he soon bud reasons to believe
were lovers. The girl bad an aching

young man said:

ALL ABOUT WARTS.
Though In Tliemaelvaa Hiirmlem, They
. Klioulil He Promptly ltemoved.
Bnnoath tho epidermal, or outor layor
of the skin, the tissue is thrown up into
littlo mounds or cones, called papilho.
Into theso run the small blood-vessols
and the sensitive norve-endings. Some
time one of these papilhe takes on an
abnormal frrowth, which projects above
the level ot tho surrounding skin, and is
known as a wart.
Sinco the enlarged papilhe may have
one of various shapes, the wart may be
pointed, or round, or flattened, and may
bo attached to tho skin by a base which
Is broad, or by a small pediclo. Some
times the papilla is branched, and then
the wart appears to be split.
In what is known as the "seod wart,"
which is very broad and fissured in va
rious direction, there is a series of
branches ot the underlying papilla, each
branch being covered with its laver of
Warts grow generally upon the face
and hands, but no part of the body is
exempt from thom. They are seen
most frequently in the young and the
very old, persons of middle-age being
less frequently attacked.
Sometimes a crop will appear all at
once, almost in a night, and they may
disappoar with equal suddenness. The
reason for such appearance and disap
pearance is rarely known, but the fact
has given rise to a wide-spread but base
less superstition that warts may be
No one cause can be given for the ap
pearance of warts,but probably local ir
ritation bas something to do with it in
many cases. It is a popular idea that
they are contagions, and certainly there
are facts which seem to point that way;
but what the nature of this contagion is,
if there is any, is yet to be discovered.
Warts raroly appear singly, and may
reach enormous numbers as well as large
Though in themselves all warts are
harmless, it is undoubtedly true that
they are sometimes the starting-points
for cancerous disease. This is more
likely to occur when the wart is unduly
rubbed or irritated.
The commonest treatment is by the
use of some form of mild caustic. Rather
more satisfactory, however, is the treat
ment by surgical procedures, either by
the knife or the sharp scraping spoon.
The process, whatever it is, must be a
thorough one, for if the papilla is not en
tirely removed, the growth will speedily
recur. Youth's Companion.

ABOUT STAGE FEARS.
Madame Moit,eka tilves ITer Views on a
Very I n lerestlng: Subject.
Among tho many questions addressed
to actresses by interviewers or other in
quisitive persons, and which ono hardly
knows how to answer, are the following:
"Do you shod real tears when you are
on the stage'.'"
"Is it right to do so?"
"Do you play bettor when you cry?"
"Don't tears spoil your make-up?"
"If you can not cry you can not feel
tho emotions of the charactor you per
sonate, can you?"
Of course tho next question is: "Does
Miss Z. or Mrs. X. really cry or not?
Are her tears genuine, or a stage trick?"
And so on, ad infinitum.
To tlie latter you may safely reply
that, being ot a less Inquisitive turn of
mind than the questioner you are in
complete ignoranco as to the nature of
ilie lachrymose display of Miss 2., or
Mrs. X. Speaking of yourself, you may
also briefly dismiss the physical fact of
tears by stating, which I think is most
often tho case, that sometimes you do
cry, sometimes you do not, somotimes
you play better with genuine tears,
sometimos when your eyes are dry.
But, beneath and behind this rather
irrelevant and matter-of-fact question
of tears which can be originated by
physical weakness, norvous Indisposition
or other outside influences there lurks
another serious and important one,
which is more difficult to solve, and yet
more difficult to explain.
How much a personator has to lose his
own individuality in the assumed char
acter; bow much he has to feel its feel
ings, is a problom most interesting to
the publio and most essontial to the per
formance. It would bo sheer conceit on my part
to decide a suhjoct which bas evoked so
many discussions by most competent
judgus. "You are to bo the master of
your part and not to bo mastered by
it," says Talma; while Frederick
Lemaitre, if I am not mistaken, claims
that "wo ought not te perform tu
Jharactor, but to live Its lifo." In a
recent controversy In the magazines,
fresh in our minds, two actors, both of
the most exulted rank in the profession,
have expressed opinions on this very
lubject ontirely at varianoe with each
The conclusion resulting from this
variety of views seems to be that there
is not such a thing as general rule. The
itate of mind of Talma in his highest
effort may have been quite different
j irora that of Kachel in an analogous
moment, and yet the effect obtained
; may have been the same.
I go further. It seems to me that the
same rule can not even be applied to
i the same performer on two different oc
j Judging by myself I can only say that
a certain disposition, excitement, or
I whatever you call it, is at times a help,
i at timet a hindrance to me. But then
! l it possible for us to give an exact
j analysis of our state of mind whilst we
are playing, to state the exact share of
our identity divided between our pri
: Vat character and the one we assume?
To state accurately how much I feel
tnt I am my own self and how much
that I am the oth-r person is r psy-
1 etiological puzile that I am unable to
solve. Of course, I know that I am
sometimes more in my part, sometimes
, more out of it, but why it ia to and how
much it is so I can not say.
And wbat is more, I strongly suspect
that only a very few among my brothers
, and sisters in art could answer it In re
gard to themselves. Helena Modjika,
