: ins, and that he was not really what -
the world calls a great man was simply
owing to the fact that he was entirely
too haman. He throbbed 20 violently
. with natural impuisess that be was on-
able to control himself, and as a result
his life was one long series of grand
ideas, masterful plans, brilliant schemes,
‘inspired work, from all of which others
achieved sucess.
In July, 1891, Mackaye went to Lon-
don to secure the publication of
book there. While in the British
metropolis he thought of or happened
across the grand idea which proved his
_ ultimate downfall, and abandoning his
book—which remains anpubiished he
rushed back to this conntry and inject-
ing capitalists with his enthusiasm be-
gan the building 5f the Speetatorium.
The large opera houde and theatre he
attempted to erect just outside of the
World's Fair grounds at Chicago. This
gigantic playhouse, 400x600 feet in ex-
for the Columbian Celebration
pany, and his big amusement enter
prise went to smash. Bonds to the
amout of $800,000 had been issued, and
$500,000 of them had been sold. There
had been expended already £500,000 on
the enterprise, it is anid. and the com-
plainant averred that it would take
$270,000 to finish it. The company
‘owed $316,000, and had tangible sasets
to the amount of $50,000. Mackaye ai-
leged that the company owed him $55,
- 000, and that it conldn’t pay its debts.
In October the large unfurnished build-
ing was sold for old iron for $2,500 and
demolished. Upon the failure of this
project he started another, the estab-
lishment of a Scenatorium, which was
opened about three
weeks ago. This was also a failure,
Mackaye for the first time in his life.
They broke bis spirit and without that
he could not live.
Mr. Jno. Helfrich died at St. Boni-

Monday ~vening a meeting of the
merchants and business men of Pation
was held at the Commewcial for the
purpose of organizing a branch Pro-
tective Associstion. Mr. Phiio Patter-
of the Retail
of Chicago, has
“been in town the past three weeks for
the purpose of interesting the mer-
chants of Patton in organizing a local
branch aid was present Monday even-
ing to explain the workings and ad-
vantages of membership in the agency.
The local branch was organized by
“electing the following officers: H. E
Barton, president; D. C. Dale, vice-
president; 1). A. Buck, secretary; Harry
Buck, treasorer; executive board, T.
F. Mellon, A. T. Little and John A.
Reilly. The constitution and by-laws,
as adopted by other branch organiza-
tion throughout the country, were read.
and adopted by the Patton branch. Lo
8. Bell, formerly of a member of the
agency at DuBois, was present and
stated his experience with the organi-
zation and how the agency had been
snccessfully managed at that place.
‘The system in ume by this agency has
for its purpose the protection of mer-
chants. . This agency uses no dishonor:
able means to foree eoilections or
settlements, but the merchants propose
to exercise their legal right to refuse
credit to persens who gain the repu-
tation of not treating a member of the
agency honorubly.
Many a poor, worthy man has been
refused credit for the necessities of life
because’of the merchant's unpleasant.
experience with bad debtors. but this
system will tend wo obviate all that,
because the man who does respect his
credit will be known and have a stand-
ing among merchants, while the “dead
beat’ and others of his kind Will also
be known to
