RAT DISTURBS RATS;
CAUSES RATIFICATION.
Bold and Fearless Black Rodent Invades
Camp of White Artistsand Makes
it Rough on Rats.
As Bobby Gylor ias in deep reverie
in his private office at the Chicago White
Rat'cs tarters ote Fifth Avenue on the
afternoon of November 7, hie heard the
gentle patter of feet and with the in-
stinct of Dr. Frederick Cook, he looked
arounddanddiscovered that a hugeblack
rat had invaided his sanctumnsanctorum,
The brave Bobby immediately waged
war on the bold intruder and drove him
helter skelter into the next room where
ten members of the order were holding
a committee meeting. When the black
ratencountered thehand ofnWhite Rats
t heressas great confusion and the noise
that resulted made the report of Bomb
No. 36 pale into insignificance in com-
parison.
The committeemen, with Bobby Gay-
lor leading the fight, armed themselves
with every conceivable weapon and for
some minutes a fierce battle was waged.
Ciairs, canes, brooms and aniteingthat
i-otlii he-sizn-t i a jiffystv-wreliiirlediat
the rodent. Finally the death blow was
struck by a White Rat with one of the
new contracts and, according to Bobby
Gaylor, there was a great "rat-ification."
Fortunately none of the WVhite Rats
ittre injured in the melee, although Ab-
nor Ali nearly strained his right leg
is the result of kicking at the intruder
and missing him. The closest he came
to getting near any of the Rats was
then his toe missed Gaylor's chin by
a few inches.
Amid the elation and exultation, the
White Rats danced merrily around the
lifeless form of the black rat. Bobby
Gaylor said the rodent was a repre-
s   tzaive of the agents, who bear the
olusiiiizatin Ill AN-ill tintd thatt he wins
trying to get on to the doings of the
oammittee. So the saying, "Dead men
tell no tales," will be borne out in the
fielitthat dead its will carrt no tals
;nd consequently it was up to the White
-ats    slay Mr. Black Rat. Gaylor is
tiowy trying to locate the man  who
turned the rodent loose. Judging from
the noise that was made while the rat
toas being exterminated, made outsiders
think that a White Rat initiation was in
progress. It is reported that when the
agents heard of the matter all they said
was "rats."
Gaylor Life Member of Rats.
Bobby Gaylor, the efficient and popular
secretary of the Chicago White Rats
association, is now a life member of
the order of White Rats of America,
ind the genial Irishman now proudly
Ilisplays a card that shows that as long
s e eliveslie  ill)e entitled to all the
ads'antages and privileges of the White
Hats of America. Gaylor is the second
member of the order to pay $100 for a
life membership, the other Rat being
F-'rank Fogarty of New York City.
Fogarty, who being a tad, declared
that cards should be green, and green
tihey are as Gaylor says his is of the
right sort and Gaylor should know as
lie is an Irishman. With all respect to
(taylor and his intellectuality, this re-
ference is made regarding the discrim-
itnation between the Shamrock and the
golden fruit of California.
George Fuller Golden. who was the
first to get alife membership, was voted
tue totor byi the order which he or-
ani zedbut F     garty and Gaylor arethe
first to take advantage of the payment
if the $100 privilege. Gaylor's card is
ntrmbered two.
It is duly signed by President Fred
Niblo and Secretary W. W. Walters.
Show Comes Back to Town.
'Tle Girl in the Grandstand" after
bioing on the roadaweek, has returned
to Chicago. It issaidtlantthe company
will be reorganized and that it will go
out again, Playing the Shubert week
ntime, opening in Minneapolis. Ad-
vices from sone of the towns inwhich
tue piece has been offered are to the
effect that the play is not a roaring
success. Several changes have been
made in the managerial force of the
company, and Henry A. Guthrie, who
was formerly business agent for the
TWestern Producing company, which of-
fers the piece, has resigned.
Sam Gerson in Town.
Sam Gerson, formerly manager ofthe
Garrick theater, later identified with the
Whitney and with the Bush Templeand
the Sanis Souci Park theater, is in the
city preparing for the coming of Fan-
nie Ward in "Van Allen's Wife," a new
play. which will be seen at the Illinois
week after next.
CLEVELAND, 0., Nov. 10.-Precau-
tions tgknin 1  fire hiae been taken by
the Lake Shore Film & Supply Co.. the
largest moving picture film exchange in
Cleveland. This was done following a
disastrous fire in the Ferguson building
in Pittsburg a few weeks ago.
The Lake Shore company has inclosed
each role of film in a heavy tin can.
The cans are placed in galvanized iron
boxes. The boxes are hung on the walls
and have large handles at each end so
that they can be thrown out in case of
fire.
Electric wires have been placed in
conduits, iron piping.
Films cost on the average $115 each.
A fire in the rooms of the Lake Shore
Film & Supply Co. might wipe out $300-
000 wvorth of films in a few seconds, it
is said, provided films were not pro-
tectud as they are.
A noes film has just been placed on
the market, iwhich the inventors declare
is non-inflamrnmable. It crumbles up, but
wil not blaze when brought in contact
with a flame.-FRYE.
New Picture Company.
CLEVELAND, 0., Nov. 9.-A complete
set of apparatus, including several new
German inventions for the manufacture
of motion picture films has been pur-
chased by the Marks-Harris Amusement
Co. The material will arrive In Cleve-
land within a few days. The local com-
pany will manufacture films in great
qiuantities.  The stage of the Grand
theater will be used mornings for dram-
atic pictures.-FRYE.
