MARRIED 1,727 TIMES. I During his career Ludovic Barnay the great Hungarian actor, took part in 371 plays and ap- peared in 98 different towns. It thus happened that hi3 stage experiences compelled him to be married 1,721 times, and to die 1,120. But what can be said about the modes of his dissolution? There were 314 scenes in which he committed suicide, while he was stabbed 61 times, shot 51, beheaded 31, and drowned 22. In addition to these calamities he had to show what death from heart disease was like in 192 of his impersona- tions, and depict the effects of poison in 166 others. Little wonder, therefore, that he came to be regarded as a master in the art of stage dying, just as Mr. George Alexander is admitted to be our champion love-maker.
