BOOKS AND MAGAZINES. FROM PIT-BOY TO STAR.—Mr. Harry Lauder has written about himself at home and on tour. He thus describes his first appearance on a London stage, where he got a chance as "extra turn" I was at Gatti's long before ten o'clock, eagerly yet nervously waiting my number—my extra turn. Beyond the fact that I sang "Tobermory," "Calligan," and "Ihe Lass o' Killiecrankie," and that I had the greatest diffi- culty in getting off the stage, so many were the recalls I got, I remember very little about my first performance in London. The stage seemed to be going round and round, while for all I knew the house might have been empty, but I threw my whole heart into my work, and on getting to the dressing-room I nearly collapsed through sheer nervousness and fatigue. Mr. Tinsley came to me in a few minutes with the I remark: "Lauder, my lad, you\'e done it L and I took a somewhat different meaning from the phrase than had been intended earlier in the day. He engaged me for the rest of the week straight away, and from that date to this I have never been long out of London. In a few days the managers of the big West-end halls were after me with contract forms and ex- tended engagements were entered into between them and myself.
