HISTORY OF THE' BOWERY.  Defied All Efforts  to   Get Kid of It and,  lake a Cad   Penny, Always   Came Back  -to Its Owner, Despite  Even a Burglar's  Efforts.  The man from Staten Island spoke as  follows:  "I never read  an   article about bo*w  .   men should   dress that I do not.at once  recall the history of   a dressfsuit I onee  Dwued. ���������   '  " .  "I got it hurriedly in Washington. I  bad to attend tho iuaugural ball.  There  '    was no way out of  my dilemma. Then  t  remembered that I had no dress suit.  An obliging friend told me that a clerk  in   a   clothing   store owed him, I have  forgotten the amount, aud   he proposed  .������    that I get a suit and square the account.  rJe   saw the  clerk,   the  clerk   saw bis  joss, and the deal was made.  An iuau-  guration dress suit always carries with  ife   a   ticket to the   ball, supposed to be  worth   $5   if  taken   at the flood.    The  clerk thought he  ought to have the ������5,  ,   and I,gave it to,him.       '-���������  "For a wonder the suit was a fit. -My  friend did not want the suit, and he absolutely refused to allow me .to pay him  itnything.    He suggested  that I take'it  home and  give   it  away.    I carried   it  back with rue, and it hung  in   a closet  until it looked like a beef   tongue in   a  delicatessen window.    I had  not cared  7 enough about it to  put it  away  properly. "One day,an employee of the house  " discovered  it and made ��������� an'-offer for  it  if I would  pay  for  renovating   it and  having it made to fit him.  "He took it to my tailor, and that  was tbe last I heard of it for six months.  Yon see how I stand with my tailor.  Meanwhile the employee left the house.  One day .my tailor sent me word that  tho suit had never been, taken away.  His bill was $7.-50. I paid it'and had  the suit sent home, and this time I had  if carefully folded. It lay there two  years., I tried to give it away. Nobody  would have it. Finally I came to look  upon it as a relic, and used to show it  to my friends as a suit that,was at the  inauguration ball of a very noted president. '.      " ���������  "One day my house was visited by  burglars of taste. They took nothing,  except articles that were either valuable  from an art point or because they would  bring a ready sale.' Of course the dress  suit did not come under either head,  but they took it. It was probably taken  to wrap the other articles in. I made  complaint to the police about the robbery. In giving-an inventory of the  stolen articles I- mentioned the dress  coat incidentally.  "Three mpntns later I was asked to  call at the station where I had made  complaint. I was then informed that  they had recovered- a dress suit from a  chap who makes a living renting out  dress suits and who became suspicious  of this one. I saw the suit. It was the  same as that about which I have been  telling you. I saw the chap who had  .informed the police that he was afraid  of the suit, and I gave him a guarantee  quit claim-title to it, for which he gave:  me $3. If he had asked me to give it to  him, I would have done so.  "But ic  was-tho only  thing  stolen  that came back. "���������New York World.  'r:y,v������?%r:2i:;'  \ ebv-  Unique In Its Way.  The leading'lady shook her head and  murmured. "I can't understand it."  "What's wrong?" asked the juvenile.  : "This.paper says last night's audience  was small."  1 "Well, it seems tome you ought to  be able to understand that. Even thr,  chairs would probably have deserted, if  they had not been screwed down."  "But you don't catch my meaning.  The critic says the audience was small,  and stops right there. He doesn't  add, 'but appreciative.' "���������Cleveland  Leader.        ' .  Polishing1 a Hard Wood Floor.  Much labor may   be  saved in   caring  for hard wood floors by the  use of  the  "frottoir,"  which is  simply  a  heavy  weight covered   with   carpet, to which  is attached a long handle.   The American Kitchen Magazine tells that an enterprising little woman,,,after a journey  on the continent, where this implement  is in  general- use, improvised  one  by  covering a brick with carpet and catch-  fug it in the clamp with a long handle  used for scrubbing brushes. It is unnecessary to buy* patent   polishes, for  this  process.    Melt, a   quantity of   beeswax  over the fire and stir in.turpentine until  if-assumes the consistency   of  a  paste.  This polish   is. extremely inflammable,  and the greatest, caro must be   taken in.  ���������   Hiixing'ifc not   to  allow   it   tb . coih-e in  -contact with   tbe' fire.    When about to  ���������*-.,'. use, melt a ' portion   over  the   fire and  .^spread .a .thin layer over .the  cloth covered brick..  Begin   at  one  corner  and  'work sharply, taking an arm's-length at  .������������������ia-Mtime; let the new row overlap enough  prrg'.a streak* '���������'���������      ���������'*  Originally an Indian Trail   and the Sceco  of Many Massacres.  It is probable that the Bowery wau  originally part of an Indian,trail which  extended from the region of the Eatiery  to the northern limit of Manhattan and  connected the aboriginal .villages on  the Harlem 'flats and Spuyteu Duyvil  creek with'those north -of City Hall  park and east of the present Greenwich  avenue. A few years after tho founding of Nieuw Amsterdam the representatives of the West India company laid  out, six,farms or bouwerics along the  east side of the present Bowery and  leased them to tenants. ��������� .  In 1643 Director Eieft, in spito of  the protest of De Vries and other influential men, ordered the massacre of  40 Indians at Corlears Hook, and that  of a still larger number of men, women  and children at Pavonia. ��������� In rctaliatidu  for these brutal murders, for they were  nothing elso, the outlying farms at  Harlem, Staten Island, tho Bowery and  other places were laid waste. When  peace was restored, it was found impossible to,r,ent the farms, so they were  eventually sold.. >  Prior to the sale of these farms; how-,  ever, a frontier colony of manumitted  negro slaves was established west of  the Bowery. With reference to this  colony the minutes of the Dutch council, 1644J.recite the fact that Manuel  de Groot, the .giant,, and ten other negroes and their wives, were released  from slavery, on condition that each  man, during his life, pay the government an annual rental of 22 bushels of  grain and a fat hog, their children being still held as slaves. Their plantations'extended-from the Bowery to old  Jans', land, now tho property of Trinity  church.'  . Two hundred and fifty years ago  Petrus Stuyvesant landed on the island  ( of Manhattan, and four years later he  purchased, through his representative,  Jan Dam en, the "Great Bowery," or  bowery No.01,-the most northern of the  six original farms, which were,numbered from one to six, No. 6 being east  of Chatham square, at the time of which  we write the property of Augustine  Hermanns, the amateur draftsman, to  whom we are indebted for , ancient  sketches of New Amsterdam.  At the beginning of tbe Revolutionary war this farm was the, property of  the Rutgers, the home of the patriot  Harm an us Rutgers, killed in the battle  of LongrIsland. In-August, 1655, Governor'Stuyvesant led. his forces against  the Swedes on the Delaware. Sept. 15,  duriug his absence, ex-Sheriff Henry  Van Dyke discovered an .Indian woman  stealing peaches from"his orchard,- situated, on the west" side"of "Broadway,  south of Trinity church, and shot her  dead.  The news of the rash and cruel act  spread to the neighboring tribes, and  before peace was renewed 28 plantations  were laid waste, 100 men, women- and  .children murdered, and as many carried  into captivity, Van Dyke being among  the first slain. Several of the occupants  of tbe farms along the Bowery were  killed and their wives and children  carried into captivity.  _On the return of Governor Stuyvesant  order was restored and many of tbe  captives-returned to their friends, among  them a daughter.of the celebrated Wol-  fert Webber, who at this date kept a  tavern on the present Chatham square  (then of  course a country road), about  A QUEMi BULLFIGHT.

Gold and Silver Ont of Date���������Brocade and  Hand Embroidery In Vogue.  Photograph frames have a new wrinkle this spring. The photograph frame  of..gold, generally of the empire style,  is going out of date, and;that of silver  has gone out completely. Their places  are now taken by photograph frames of  rich brocade, which, just brought over  from Paris, are beginning to be sold in  the shops and have at the moment an  especial vogue for the reason that they  are not made in this country.  For their decorativeuess as well as  their novelty these brocaded picture  frames are getting to be very popular.  Brocades of rich and subdued colors are  used,,and generally there are tinseled  edges. They curve out slightly, being  tariffed out so as to stand upon the edge.  The favorite color is a tone of greenish  gray, brocades of a deep red touch being also in favor.  A novelty in this line is a photograph  box without a coyer that holds a string of  a dozen photograph frames. This string  of frames folds up compactly and fits  snugly in the box or case. Both box  and frames are covered with the same  brocade.     <-,  Another new photograph frame is  hand embroidered. It is being shown in  great variety and is exceedingly elaborate..'. Such .frames are done in' designs  of flowers, bowknots and birds aud in  -all the delicate colors,, in. tones of pinks,  .blues and greens. A favorite ground for  this, embroidery is pink satin, though  satins .of aH'other colors are used. Some  of these frames show delicate white embroidery on a white satin ground. . The  entire frame is incased in.glass to prevent, soiling.,  Crape paper frames have a vogue,  too, and are highly esteemed for country , houses. ..These styles of the shops,  noted by the New York Herald, aro  particularly pleasing because homemade articles can so easily be fashioned  after thenf    "  I contended that there were, no "new  women" in Mexico���������that is to say, among  tho .natives. "But," said my friends tri-  umphantly, "you coino with us to the  bullfight next Sunday and see whether  thero arcornot before making: such wild  statements. You'll find that Mexico i������, if  anything,' ahead of your Anglo-Saxon  races in tho matter of 'now women.' "  Therefore I went.  The occasion was tho debut of a cua-  drilla of lady bullfighters, and a big crowd  had congregated our, at tho Bueareli bull  ring to seo tho fair scnoritas. Every one  was on tiptoe of expectation until the ladies entered for the promenade, and loud  was tho, applause when they did appear,  certainly quito fetching in their tororo  cosruiues. They aro rather pretty, all  Spanish, and the combinations of colors  they had selected were,,certainly all that  could bo desired.  At tho start off sonio,quite pretty'work  with tho capa was done by Lorita and  Angelita, the object of their attention, being a frisky young bull. Thorcrowd liked  this work and applauded the senoritas  loudly. - After that Angelita- xery bravely  knelt in tho ring and challenged the bull.  At this every ono yelled and applauded,  tho band played the "Diana" over and  over again, while up on tho sunny side  tho peons shrieked "Bravo, bravo, An-  ' gelita!" and flowers," dollars, purses and  spools or thread came rattling into > the  ring.  ; Next camo the banderillas, wielded ,by  Angelita and Encarnncion. Owing, I suppose,'to the fact that a woman's aim is  never.what it should bo, in every caso except one tho banderillas went very wide of  the mark.' In fact, tho little torcto seemed  to regard it in the light of a frolic and  'friskGdf.around in tho happiest manner. ���������  ', The picadors were eliminated, and so  the next thing to the banderillas'was the  killing!' Every ono was on the qui vive,  as Angelita took tho sword, determined  'and calm. ' Sho woro a beautiful combination of purple and silver and looked very  pretty indeed. For about four' minutes  'sho laborod with all her might,, but the  haughty little bull refused to bo touched.  He frisked, about wildly and made divers  alarming butts at Angelita in reply to her  attenjjgons with tho sword. Twice she was  "bunted" nnd rolled in tho dust of the  ring, and had it,not been for a male torero, who was in the ring to assist, Angelita might have got hefown quite in place  of the toro. As it was, ho harm was done,  except to tho bull, who received scratches  and cuts from Angelita's sword until ho  must have wondered what sort of matadore  had hold of him. . No doubt it was as  -much of- u surprise to him as any ono blse  when tho fair terera finally did touch the  vital spot, and tho poor little toro rolled  over dead.  Again tho audience shrioked and stamped and bravoed, and more dollars and  flowers nnd spools of thread tumbled down  nt the fair Angelita's whito slippered feet.  Sho tripped about from side to sido, bowing with hands on her heart to tho sol and  Mien to tho sombra. It was rather funny  to,see a woman uproariously applauded  for work that a man would have been  hissed and hooted for, but it goes to show  the innate gullantry of the Mexican people.  The next bull'camo in, and again two  of tho girls teased him with the pretty  capa work. In this they do very well. In  the cloak play there is no"aim" required,  and it really is not difficult for feminine  hands. Ail you have got to do is to flap  the cloak at the toro and if ho gets too  near to you for comfort dodgo briskly behind a barrier. But the girls came out of  the capa work without accident.  Tho banderilla work with this second  bull was on tho same line as the first���������  that is to say, about as bad as it could be���������  and oven tho good naturbd audience could  not keep from groaning. For my part, I  groanod for the bull. Thoy jabbed at him  and scratched and stuck him until it was  a sight to behold. Out of the two banderillas they sometimes placed one, and then  :. the girls would rush off and bow and  spread out their hands in alarmed gestures  at tho bull, who appeared thoroughly  dumfounded and utterly at a loss to know  what it all meant. ;      ���������  Again Angelita was* callod upon to take  the sword and kill the toro. With Spanish grace she bowed and beckoned and  went through all the usual preliminary  motions and then made the first whack  at the littlo bull. She aimed, from a close  distance, at tho neck. Naturally the sword  took tho animal straight in'the ribs. The  bull went for her, head down, horns out  and evidently with the idea of doing murder. If the man bullfighter, El Negrito, had not been in the ring just, then, no  one would have known what happened,  Angelita having lost her sword. It took  quite a time to got tho bull sufficiently  smoothed down to give him another thrust,  which took him in the neck, near enough  to tho vital spot to tumblo him. But he  was by no moans done for, nnd it was  only nfter some sharp work that the little  bull gave up the ghost and stretched himself out oh tho sand. The decorated white  niuies dragged him out a moment after  uiuid the "plaudits of the crowd," to join  his compadre outside in the corral, whence  nest day would bo'sold nice beefsteaks and  "rosbif."  The third bull was brought in, and the  capa wortt* commenced again, but we did  not stop .longer. .

Pale, hollow eyed, hopeless,-with her'  hands folded in her lap, the wife looked, drearily out of the window at' the  patch of blue sky visible beyond the  blackened chimney pots and dingy roofs  that answered for a landscape.  The husband, gaunt with famine and  misery, leaned his head on his hands in  tho aftitr.de of one who had given up  the battle.  He had tramped the streets day after  day looking vainly for work, and now,  too proud to beg, he waited calmly for  tie end.  With their last bit of fuel they browned their last crust of bread, which they  steeped in hot water in a mournful effort to make a beverage faintly recalling the coffee of happier days.  The .afternoon su-i, shining "dimly  through tbe smoke and fog that overhung the great city, sank behind a bank  of gray,clouds in,the distant west, and  the miserable attic became if possible  darker and gloomier, but the wretched  occupants heeded it not.

TIPSY   MEN   DANGEROUS.      ,  AN   ARMY TRAGEDY.  Try-  A Story of the Troublo Involved In  ing to Help One of Them.  Three or four men wore spinning yarns  in ono or tho parlors of the Charleston ho-  tol, and the conversation drifted around  to experiences with drunken men.  "You'vo no idea how dangerous it is to  have any dealings with a drunken man  whom you may meet on the street," said  one of the party. "A man sometimes  gets into trouble that may last him a lifetime I recall an experienco of a friond of  mino that will serve to illustrate tho  point.  "Ono Sunday  morning^ several years  ago wo wero  sitting  in his  room in New  Orleans watching the people coming home  from church  when , suddenly there staggered into sight a block away a well dressed  man,  evidently  much, the  worse  for  what he had   taken.    We watched him as  he worked his way up the street, clinging  to tho palings and taking up all the pavo-  ment he could.    We wore  somewhat inclined to consider it a joke, until he camo  to the opposite corner and  paused in despair' at the prospect of crossing.    The  crossing was none too woll paved anyway  and the presence of a trolley car,track directly in front of him evidently added to  . the terrors of the situation for him. So he  stood  there,   embracing a lamppost and  trying to' make up his  mind to the task,  until my friend took  pity on  him.    Saying, 'Poor devil 1 I've been .in tho same fix  'myself,' he went to his assistance.    The  man was grateful and clung to my friend  liko a brother until he landed him safely  at homo. , ��������� ,  "Noxtdaya policeman called to arrest  my friend on tho charge of having robbed  somebody of a watch and chain. It was  the drunken man, who, when he recovered, bad found those articles missing and  remembering my friend's name had sworn  out n warrant against him. You can  imagine what a sensation it created. The  poor fellow was marched away to tho station house and locked up, and we were in  a state of mind. ' The afternoon papers  were full of it of course, and it was talked  all over town. You can imagine the re-  . lief,to all of us when, late in the evening,  a man appeared with tho missing articles  and - stated that the drunken man had  given them to him to take care of until he  sobered up. The charge was withdrawn  of course and the profoundest apologies  'offered, but that day'my friend quit New  Orleans and has never been there since."  ���������Charleston Newsand Courier.  A   Gettysburg   Incident   That   One   Man's  Memory Will Not Veil.  A captain on tho staff of a division commander at the   battle of  Gettysburg, who  afterward    became  a  general' and  commanded a division himself for a time, once  said that if he had it he would willingly  givo  $1,000,000  if   ho- could   forget  and  never recall a Gettysburg tragedy.  ,   "We  needed   overy man   in  line," said  the general.    "Orders  had been  given to  let no well or unwounded  man go to the  rear.  Our general had told the whole staff  that if, we couldn't  stop stragglers any  other way to shoot them down.    As soon  as  tho  firing  began t a  certain  class fled  from the front, and the staff flew at them  on their horses and pushed them backtinto  the ranks.    It was always a job I hated.  It made me mad to see a fellow run away  from   his  comrades  when   they  were  in  trouble, and  I   used   to be roughor with  thorn than I wanted  to be with  any class  of God's creatures.   The enemy was pressing  our  lino  very  hard.    A   break  was  greatly feared. Buck came another cluster  of   stragglers,   big,   hearty  follows,   who  never stay under fire a second longor than  they are forced to do.    I made direct for  three of them with my drawn sword. Two  of  them wont   back  to duty.    The  third  told me  to,go where  it was  hotter than  that  hottest day at Gettysburg and  said  he'was going back no matter if the whole  staff stood in tho way.    'Go back to your  place instantly,' I demanded.    At that he  cocked his rifle and was lifting the barrel  so that  I would  gotits contents.    Down  went my sword  to the' ground, and out  came  my revolver.    Quicker  than  I can  tell you it cracked, and tbe man fell dead.  Yes, it'was a case of shoot him or be shot.  r only- wanted to disable'him without killing.'   A second  more and he would have  killed me." 1  "Then why do-you say you would give  $1,000,000 to forget the incident?"  "It is an awful thing to kill a human  being. I can see just how that man fell  back with an oath on his lips. I don't  like it. You wouldn't. I havo commanded  companies, a regiment, a brigade and a  division, to do wholesale killing in battle.  That was what wo enlisted to do.

Cuba is a hotbed of yellow fever. Most  of the epidemics, in this country have been  traced to some ono .coming from that island. It has found its victims usually  among the residents of the cities of the  south, but its easiest victories have been  among northern people.  ' Seventy-seven years ago there was a situation which may bo paralleled in the.  near future. When the Spaniards evacuated Florida in 1821, a garrison of United  States troops, made, up ot northern men  wholly unacclimnted, was sent to St. Augustine. Three transports which took tho  Spanish troops to Cuba returned to Florida with yellow fever. Ono of thorn had  lost its entiro crew and was navigated into  pert by two passengers.  Troops  stationed: at Tampa, Key West  and oven,Chic-kamauga, being in connection with  forces which  are   operating   in  -Cuba, will run tho risk of i������fection.

Ho has passed I  Kinds of Food That Should Be Given to  Them���������Treatment When Sick.'  "Cats are by no means as hardy as is  suggosted by tho old adage that each cat  has nino lives," remarked a veterinarian  who makes a specialty of treating sick  cats. "But there is no reason why, with  proper care, a pet cat should not live to a  very green old age. Cats should be fed  regularly and at least twice a day. Bread  and milk or oatmeal porridge and milk,  the milk having a little hot water and a  trifle of sugar added to it in chilly weather, should constitute their breakfast.  Bread and broth with a little cooked meat  is quite sufficient for their dinner. A little fresh fish may bo given occasionally  and now and then a morsel of uncooked  liver and moat, care being taken ro r������-  , move all fat. AnjT vegetable for which  tho cat shows a fondness may be given  with discretion.  "Remember to see that a cat always has  access to a plenty of fresh water and fresh  grass, grass being a genuine panacea for  all its minor troubles. Tho diseases of  cats include sore throat, bronchitis, pneumonia and consumption, which are especially provalcnt among them, as they are  very susceptible to dampness. Ono of the  first symptoms of illness is a rough and  untidy coat. If this bo accompanied by  restlessness and languor, it is safe to administer u dose of castor oil and provide  the cat with a sheltered place until the  offect has worn off.  "Whero tho presence of any kind of  poison is suspected prompt and energetic  action is necessary. A liberal dose of lukewarm water slightly salted generally has  o good offect, but it is safest to givo at  once sweet oil or melted lard. After such  an experience u course of cod liver oil is  advised, with a gonerous diet. A little  powdered sulphur made into a paste with  lard or unsultod butter and smeared upon  tho front paws is an excellont. thing to  keep a cat in good condition, but caro  should be taken to heep it from all oxpo-  suroto dampness until tho effects of t-ho  dosw disappear.  "Never scold, frighten or shake a sick  cat. It matters not how cross they may  be at first, they soon' come to understand  tho treatment is for their own com.fort and  will quietly submit after a short while.  Cafe, must bo taken to guard against their  bite, however, as the bite of a cat is always a serious thing. In giving medicine  tho sick animal should bo rolled in a sheet,  its paws at its sido, the mouth pressed  open and u bit of wood laid across the lower .jaw just behind the eyoteeth." .

"Mr. Evarts," said one, "do you not  think I am right in saying that a woman  is always the best judge of another woman's character?"  "Madam," replied Mr. Evarts, "she is  not only the best judge, but also the best  Bxecutioner."  Bat   the   Irate   Creditor   Wm   Ready  to  Commit Assault.  '-      $  Some time ago the proprietor of a popular down town ci^ar store was confronted by a well dresseu stranger. Tho stranger smiled pleasantly and asked for a cigar.  "Gimme as good as you'vegot,"hesaid.  So the dealer, reached nround in the  showcase until he unearthed a certain  brand. , , > -  t  "Fifty bents," he said as he shoved  them across the glass. - h    ���������  "That's the ticket," said the, stranger  as he carefully selected a smoker that suited-him.'-                ' " -      <'-'"-  I ~^r- ���������V. ���������   He passed it critically beneath bis nose,  balanced it airily on one finger, snipped  off the end, lighted it and puffed away  contentedly. So absorbed was he that he  quite overlooked the fact that the proprietor was gazing at him expectantly.  ^ "Oh, yes," he cried when he caught  the cigar man's gaze. He dived into one  pocket, looked astonished, dived into another and looked moro astonished.'  "By Jovo," he muttered, "that's queer!"  He scooped into his pockets again and  patted himself across the vest front.  "Dear, dear," ho murmured, "this is  embarrassing! Haven't got a cent with  me; must have left pocketbook at hotel."  He looked at the proprietor.' The latter  was regarding his frantic efforts with a  look of lukewarm sympathy.  "Take stamps!"' inquired the stranger  as he thrust a hand into his inner coat  pocket.  "Certainly, sir," said the unsuspicious  dealer.  "Then," said the stranger hastily, "take  these." And he stamped heavily on the  floor a half dozen times and then scooted  through the door. j  Well, tho cigar man was so full of rage  that he could only splutter anathemas.  He was so mad, in fact, that an hour later  the 6ight of a postage 6tamp or a heavy  tread on tho floor would have thrown him  into convulsions.���������Cleveland Plain Dealer.  Showing tlte Troubles Hotel Clerks  With Superstitious Guests.  "Tho superstition about 13 works both  ways in the hotel business," volunteered  the proprietor of ono of our hotels, "though  in the great majority of cases it is against  any room that is numbered 13. Peoplo  who are strong enough to resist nearly all  other popular superstitions fall down  when the 13 case arises for their consideration and ��������� especially when they are shown  to a room having that number. In a great  number of hotels the rooms numbered 13  are used for,storago rooms or linen closets  and tho like, though in many of tho most  modern thero is no room 13, tho jump being made from 12 to 14. This is no doubt  tho best way to got out of tho troublo as  far as tho guests are concerned, but some  extra sensitive persons will notico .the  jump and fight shy of 14 as well, for they  can Eee if the numbering was properly  carried out it would bear the supposed  fatal or unfortunate number. In my hotel  there is a room 13, and, I assuro you, it is  oftoner vacant than occupied.  "Only a few weeks since ono of the men  whose names are most prominently mentioned in this country in connection with  politics stopped  at this hotel.    As 13 was  ompty, as usual, the clerk sent him to it,  thinking, that ho was  not off acted by tho  superstition.    He noticed the number before he  got to the door  and   refused ��������� tho  room;-saying   that  he would  not  occupy  it under any circumstances.   Ho then told  tbe clerk that he had studied into the superstition  as far as it  related  to politics  and had learned that in tho last three pros?  idential conventions the-mon who wero to  nominate the popular candidate for president   by   circumstances   were   put   into  rooms  in the convention, cities numbered  13 and that, in  each case their candidates  were defeated for nomination.  Ho thought,  the 13 did the business for them'as much  as anything ��������� else and may bo more-than  all things else combinod. Now,' while this,  is  true,'there are  those who prefer 13 to  any other number  and especially   those'  who are members of the so called 13 clubs,  who hold their meetings on the 13th of the  months, have 13 at each table at tho dinners and the like.    If it was not for these,  a room  numbered  13 would- be just so  much lost space in a hotel. "���������Washington  Star.  EXPENSIVE  EXERCISE.  MAARTEN MAARTEN5.

Tbe visitor seems to be floating  through a submarino palace of many halls,  whoso roofs nro either as green as grass in  the sun or blood red. But the visitor needs  a good guide and a good boatman, for the  tea is insidious and the labyrinth of caves  intricate.  On ono occasion, writes Aubrey do yere  in his "Recollections," soon after a party  had entered tho boatman suddenly shout-  ed, "Bend down your heads for your  lives!"  N* one saw any danger, but the boatman felt tho placid water insonsibly rising and knew that tho tide had turned.  At last the visitors know this, too, for it  was not until tho boat had ascended within a few inches of the roof that it began to  descend.  "Pull your best!" exclaimed the man  at the helm. "If the second wuvo reaches  us, we are lost!" But before tho second  wave reached the cave tho boat had issued  from its mouth. ..-"-.  Experience That ���������, Shows  That Riding  Is Cheaper Than Walking:.  ~-Ho was sitting at a table talking ' to a  party of friends. '"Well, I|ve tried everything," ho was saying, "but what is the  use of worrying about theso things? Some'  men are fat, some are lean. I tell you it  can't be helped.'   We're built that way."  "Ever tried walking?" chimed a listener.    "Do you walk much?"  "Tried everything, I toll you. But, by  the way, that reminds me of an experience  I had one time.' I was discussing the subject one evening with my wife. She said:,  Mini, you ought to walk moro.

" 'By George! I never thought of that  before,' said I. 'I never looked at it that  way.    I guess I'll try it.'  "I started to keep my resolution in the  morning, so I walked to the office. Although somewhat tired, I fejt better. In  the evening I started to walk home, but  when I got down tho street a little way I  met a friend, who patted mo on tho shoulder, shook hands, said be was glad to see  me and also said, 'Come in and have  something.'  "I went. Inside were a party of gentlemen whom we both knew, and we all of  us had something. We chatted and talked  awhile, had a smoke, talked another while  and had something more. J Looking at my  watch, 1 realized it wos past my supper  time. My humor was. in excellent mood,  and I invited the boys to come up town  with me and have a good supper. We had  lots of fun at supper time. Some one oven  suggested that we go to the theater. Of  course we went. After tho show we had  something more to eat and drink. We also  had a few smokes.  "Oh, I had a good time! I walked  enough that night, I tell you. Didn't reduce any fat, either. I got home about 1  o'clock. My wife, astonished at the unusual hour of my arrival, asked where I'd  been, why it was I came home so late.  'Dearie,' said I, 'I walked home tonight,  and it cost me just $'17.70 to get here.'

A kernel of corn or n pea or other small  substance gets into a child's nose, and tho  problem is to remove it.    We would suggest the following method  ns effectuol in  accomplishing- the objoci desired: Inject  into the free  nostril with  a  common   syringe a stream of tepv). water.    Tho sides  of tho nostril should be closed around the  point of tho syringe to prevent a reflux of  the water. Use a moderate degree of force  and tho stream will mako a circuit through  tho posterior nasal cavity and  pass out of  the opposite nostril, dislodgingtho foreign  substance. A more simple method is this:  The patient takes a "deep   breath," then  closes the mouth and  tho free,nostril and  forces his   breath  through the obstructed  nostril.    If tho child   is old enough to do  it perfectly, ho may blow out  the corn or  peu or whatever has found a lodgmont in  the nasal passage.���������New York Lodcer.  '   ��������� Diet of Fiehtera.

The following true tale is a most curious instance of living well on nothing a  year without breaking the laws of the  land. About twenty years ago a steam  packet company of Liverpool wished to  buy a piece of land which was owned by  a "stay-at-home spinster," as her neighbors described her. She sold her land at  o very low price, but insisted upon a  clauso Doing inserted in the agreement  giving hor the right, at any time during  her life, to travel with a companion in  any of the company's vessels.  When the agreement was closed she  sold her furniture and went on board the  first outgoing ship belonging to the packet company. For years'-thiswise spinster  livod nearly all the time upon ono ship  or another, frequently accompanied by a-  companion, according to tho agreement.  This was always a person who otherwise  would havo been a regular passenger, but  who purchased her ticket at reduced rates  by paying tho spinster instead of the packet company. The company offered her  more than twice the value of tho land if  she would give up her privilege; but this  she would not do. Hor reply was: " You.  got the land cheap, and I like sailing; so  we ought both to be satisfied."  How She Viewed It.  Perhaps she was jealous, perhaps she  wasn't; anyway, she had just heard  of tbe engagement, and she could not  help noticing the engaged girl's prido  in her captured youth.  "Really," she said, and her lips curled scornfully, "there's no accounting  for tastes, is there? Some people think  they h*ve won the game when, they get  the booby prize."���������Chicago Pbst.  ���������Sincere friendship.

The lady school teachers, Mr. Hilly ar and others have  suffered losses through these light  fingered pirates.  The Govt. Agent Anderson and  Officer Thompson went to the  wharf and the keen sighted officers  discovered their prey. A severe  struggle ensued, for the trio of  robbers were game and fought like  tigers when they were being apest-  ed. One of the men nearly sue-  ceed in wresting officer Thompson's  pistol from him, but the Scotch ire  was aroused and the robber over-  powered. Govt. Agent Anderson  was obliged to fell one of the robbers to the ground. The arrest  was a most important one as well as  a harcl fight for the officers.  The captured desperadoes will  probably be called to-day (Tuesday) before Magistrate Abrams for  a hearing.  Two of the men are Englishmen,  the other an Irishman; I they have  been committing their robberies all  along the coast, and it is probable  they have stolen the sloop they  steered at last to their doom.'  :s������  sa^  Late^-  -In the mftlee one of .the  men got his head cut.
