How It la Managed in tho Stage
Production of Ben-Hur..
Tho mechanism tiC tho chariot race
in the staijo performance of "llcn
Ilur" Is described by Benjamin E.
Smith in the November St. Nicholas.
The writer viewed the race from be
hind the Hcotiex, lie says:
Hitherto the horses have paid no at
tention to the voices of the actors In
front of tha drop scene or to tho bustle
mound thorn behind It. Hut just as
the scene Is ending, one of them pricks
up his ears nnd begins to paw the floor,
an J In an Instant all those eight pairs
of eyos are wide open, the eight heads
tiro turning nervously, and tho eight
bodies are trembling with excitement.
Tho 'prrooma take a llrmer hold of the
lilts, and the men at the brakes boar
down hard. Suddenly, without word
of cummanil or touch of lash, all of
tho eight hor&cs arc In the air! There
Is a great leap, a fierce struggle- to
shake orf the hostler'd grasp, and a
wild tattoo of beating hoofs.
''What has haupened?" we shout,
as wo jump despeiately for refuge be
hind .something that looks like shel
ter, though It is only a canvass screen.
"Nothing," answers the manager of
tills scene, at our elbow (he Is the
only unexcltcd person on the stage at
that moine nt): "the horses have mere
ly taken their cue!"
They Have watched for that last
shout of the partisans of Ben-Hur, and
as Messala immediately thereafter ap
pear0 from b"hind the drop-scene,
they know that the race is on! ror
to tlicm it is a real race, and they are
cagor for the fray.
At this dramatic and somewhat peril
ous moment the cool manager of the
race is In supreme command. He leans
forward from his station in the wings,
and at tho right Instant shouts: "Let
'om go!" The brnkes are loose.!, the
hostlers spring back, and the horses
drop instantly into their paco. and are
off, 'is they fondly imagine, down th
c-ourrfo. Tn tho next moment he shouts
again, varying only the pronoun:
"Let Iipv go;" and the pig panorama
starts on its almost equally wild enroor.
The stage bunds come hurrying oft' the
st.i(r into tho wings, almost running
ovre us as wo press close to tho man
ager, In order that wo may lose no
