Hatpin Wounds Actress
Miss Marjorie Relyea, of "The Silver Slipper" Has Queer Accident
Perforated by her own hatpin, Miss Marjorie Relyea, of "The Silver Slipper's" Venus sextette, spend yesterday in the hands of her physician, while John C. Fisher held a levee in his offices looking over the applicants who were ready to fill the positions made vacant by his rapidly growing list of indisposed.
Miss Relyea's accident was of a most peculiar nature. Just before the close of the performance on Friday night she attempted to adjust a large picture hat in connection with one of the quick changes which the pulchritudinous followers of Venus are obliged to make, at the same time indulging in a bit of repartee with Sam Bernard. Those listening to the conversation concede that Miss Relyea was just on the point of uttering a particularly stinging rebuke when her hand slipped, the hatpin punctured her scalp, and the blood began flowing faster than her wit.
Quickly the blood trickled through her fair hair and ploughed little rivulets in the cosmetics on her complexion. She bled so profusely that Miss Edna Wallace Hopper and Miss Eva Davenport, who rushed to her assistance, grew frightened and sent for a physician, while Miss Relyea most properly fell into a deep swoon.
