gather about her death an especial
hallowednes* of associations.
The sorrow of her friends is assuaged
by the glad joy of the Knster message,
enforced by the blessed words of our

SALARIES' OF OUR PLAYERS.
The Pay of Actor* Varies froiu'Tta
to tTwelre Dollars to ns Muck
ns $.%<><> Per Work.
Franklin Fylcs, writing of "The The-
tcr and Its People,'* in Ladies* Home
Journal, touches interestingly upon the
earnings of actors, ami corrects the ofU
repeated reports of the cnoriunuvearn-
ings of players. "Salaries vary with cir-
cumstances,** he Fays. "The manager
may find at a v.eek a player whose
moderate talent exactly tits a part of
considerable importance. lie may have
to pay $1")0 if the role i:- singular and fit
candidates scarce. If he wants celeb-
rity in addition to ability he may be
willing' to make the salary $.">00 a week.
In that ease lie takes into account the
public value of the name and makes a
feature of it in his advertiscments. Not
more than ten actors in America, aside
from the stars, receive as much as$250
a week, and not more than five actresses
are paid this amount. In fact, $150 a
week is exceptional, and $100 will en-
gage an excellent hero or heroine, a fine
comedian or a delineator of eccentric
eliaracter. The wages run down to $73
for a soulrrette, ingenue or old man, to
$50 for an old woman, juvenile man or
juvenile woman, and so along to utility
and chorus men and women at $12 to$18
a week. Those are the wages of thor-
oughly competent actors in companies
of good grade.**
