Hard on Forrest


Forrest, the actor, once visited a lunatic asylum before producing Lear to study the insane. He watched one of the male patients for some time, during which the man kept saying: "I wonder how long? I wonder how long?"

Finally Forrest interrupted him. "What is it that you wonder so long?"

The man turned on him, with a laugh, "I wonder how long a fool like you will stand here looking for something he can't see!" — Amusing Journal.

Silk Mills Robbed Again

The Rhenania silk mills, College Point, have been robbed again. At 10 o'clock Thursday night, after Watchman Jockers had left the place, thieves entered through a window and took away $300 worth of raw silk. Two potato bags which the burglars left is the only clue.
