It wns n glorious morning, Into spring
nnd early fall, just tho tlmo when tho visit
ing country cousin takes on it dceiicrahado
of green, and the young year scorns llko n
Mott street iniildon trciubllngon tho brink
of n six months' sentence,
Harriet picked up u morning paper nnd
read us the legend of tho East River.
It was tho and, and story of Sophia Lleb
schltz, who tried to drown her doll baby
because her mother had spanked her for
bilking her baby brother out of hla share
of tho sauerkraut
"She gazed longingly nt the swishing
wavelets, nnd then pressed her infant
closer to her bosom.
"Great scalding tears welled from her
eyes, and splashed as they fell upon the in
nocent babe's face.
"Oh! It was pitiful,
In this whole city full.
Friends sho had none.
"Then, with it startled look up and down
the wharf, and out, far out upon tho swell
ing bosom of tho East river, heart broken,
miserable Sophia Lelbschlts hurled the
"With a smothered shriek of despair the
agonized mother turned nnd burled her
face in her hand. Now It was her turn to
"Restraining hands were near, however,
and Sophia found herself clasped in the
arms of two sturdy mechnnics, William
Tuthill of 023 Water street, mid Robert
Thomas, of SOS Delancoy street who wero
passing by on n Belt line car."
The baby was fished out with a boat
hook. But it little llfo was gone; the saw
dust was a shapeless mass in its little mus
lin stomach. Montana said it was tho saw
dust thing sho had ever heard. You see
worse things in Punch than what Montana
says sometimes. Late In tho day we re
turned to Harlem and put up at the Prune
House. Wo had some trouble finding this
hotel. We nrrlved from Klngsbrldge foot
sore after our long ride. Wo struck a de
serted part of tho town. Georgiana said
sho knew a hotel, and we followed her.
We followed her for four hours. Then she
confessed that the hotel she know was in
Morrisiana, We came across a solitary
loafer. Harriet asked hi in If ho could tell
us a good place to hang out for n night
He said yes, there wns n butcher shop
around tho corner; wu could get up on the
hooks In front uud bang out all we wanted.
He was a coarse loafor.
Wo found tho Prune Houso nt last It
was it building standing all nlone nt the
juncture of two of tho main streets. Wo
retired enrly, but were awakened about
midnight by it dreadful squealing of pigs
and the cackling of chickens. We rushed
out Into the hall and demanded to know
what it was. "It's bnly the hucksters
coming in; go back to bed, you Idiots,"
said the landlord.
We afterward learned that the Prune
Houso had several boarders who paid for
their keep by raising chickens off other
people's roosts. These were the hucksters
he spoke of. Tho meals iu the Prune House
are good in consequence.
We left the Prune House nt an early hour
and started cross country for Morrlsanla.
Morrisania Is a quaint old town. Harriet
said she knew a young man in Morrlsanla.
He used to come to see her.
After this shock we decided to return to
the city on tho" L." Tho ticket chopper ob
jected to tho goat "No hauliullus his al
lowed," ho said.
So we had to walk back.
"When will we go to Harlem again?"
said Harriet when we were onco more safe
in my room,
"Never!" said Montana, "You can count
me dead against Harlem as long aa there Is
a tall on a goose!"
And the goat, standing on his hind legs
before the window iecriug out Into the
night, gave a strong approval to the senti
ment TUB END.
