Iteardman was a writer of plays,
ultimately fairly well known In bis
day. For nearly twenty years he
struggled and fought his way along
without meeting with any very pro
nounced success, each play in turn
proving more or less of a failure. At
last, however, be produced a play that
really caught the public taste. He and
the famous Sheridan hnpcncd to be
present together on the oculng night
All went well. Success followed suc
cess, and applause greeted and ended
each scene. At the end of the second
act nenrdman's elation got the better
of bis discretion, and. leaning over to
ward Sheridan as usual, too witty to
be merely sympathetic he exclaimed:
"Sherldnu. Sheridan, It's going to be
a success, a complete success!"
"Ah. yes," murmured Sheridan,
with exquisite compusslon lu his voice,
too bad. too bad:"
"Too bad?" stammered bis friend,
completely taken off bis guard. "Why,
too bad that It should prove n success?"

artist, brlstilng at this accusation. "Do

Kvery grower of apples this year
paying for the apple "splurge" of last
fall and winter. In which extreme
prices prevailed for anything that wss
an apple and In which hundreds of
fruit buyers and commission men were
heavy losers or made entirely bank
rupt On; Minneapolis buyer told us
recently that apples were shipped to
that :dnt from New Kngland states In
the fall at a cort of $ !..'() per barrel
laid down, were kept lu storage
through the winter and after the col
lapse along about April 1 were bought
by the carload at f 1.25 per barrel. So
many commission men got caught on
this tlnmp that the thought or sight of
