that can be produced. The few diB

Last but hot least of th chief of-

their things and prepare to leave when
they see signs of the final curtain. At
most they will not gain two or three
minutes and the final curtain will be
ruined for those who would have liked
to see It. There are signs of decrease
in this practice at some of the theatrea
but It la still seldom that when the cur

more people bustling up and around to

Today is interesting In history as the'

engine, James Watt (1788), an lnven

had previously been made, It was Watt
who first conceived the practical use of
the steam engine,
