workers require an occasional vacation
a period of days or weeks given to some
pursuit that shall rest tho tired brain or

Not all of us can tako vacations, or we
think wo can't The machinery is kept
running, at tho risk of broaking down,
in order to meet constant calls upon us
Wise men, however, who valuo long life
and look forward to years of usefulness,
tako their pluy times with tolerable- reg
ularity, and tho harder they work the
more heartily they aro apt to play.
For oxatuplo, John Clafiin, who was
left by tho death of his father, Horace
D. Clafiin, at tho head of ono of the
largest dry goods firms In New Vork, Is
a very' busy man. Ho was-carefully
trained in business habits from tho time
he was graduated at college, amKwhcn
hardly more than a boy was his father's
main reliance. Now ho personally super
intends tho entire business, of which he
Is the principal owner But every year
he goes away for a month or so and
travels. Mt is no conventional trip over
beaten routes that he takes. He has
been almost all over tho world, visiting
many places where no white met) ever
went before. For instance, ho was the
first to cross South America from the
Pacific to tho Atlantic. For soveral
yearapast htj-ha gone to-the Rocky
mountains each BUtmuer, jUirt has made
It a point to stay there each timo until
he has killed at least ono grizzly bear.
Dry goods merchants, especially of tho
mild spoken, gcntlo mannered kind,
such as Mr. Clailin Is, who by his ap
pearance might bo taken for a Sunday
school superintendent, aro hardly the
kind' of people who would be expected to
hunt grizzly bears. Now York, how
over, boasts of a "bear hunting parson,"

so called by his ft lends. Tho Rev. W
H. Ralusford, who is known all over tho
United States us a prominent Episcopal
clergyman, also goes to tho "Rockies"
each summer for his recreation, and is
not less successful than Mr. Clafiin.
It is noticeablo that while Americans
cannot bo said to bo so devoted to thu
killing of tho lower animals in the way
of sport as Englishmen of tho higher
classes are, yet a goodly number of them
spend their vacations either shooting or
fishing. President Harrisons recent
duck hunting trip was one of his genuino
vacations, and no newspaper reader need
bo reminded that ho enjoyed it. His
summer sojourns at Capo May cannot be
called vacations, since he establishes his
office in his cottage and works as hard
there as he would if i he stayed in Wash
ington. Ex-President Cloveland has never at
tained fame as an expert with a shotgun,
but with a rod and reel ho is said to be
ablo to hold his own in any crowd of
fishermen. For many years it has been
his habit to seek his recreation in this
pursuit. This summer, however, it is
not recorded that ho has fished. He Is
busily superintending tho fitting up of
his new country houso at Tudor Haven,
N J., and is to spend his leisure time
there when the houso is ready.
Mrs. Cleveland, pending tho prepara
tion, has been visiting Mrs. Joseph Jef

working a man as therein In Ihe United
States. It is said of him that ho ignore,
tho necessity of sleep for days together,
and would even fast until ho droped If
his assistants did not leave sandwiches
and pieces of pie around tho laboratory
where he sees thorn and cats without
realizing what ho is doing. Even Edi

Robert U, lugorsoll has, until this
summer, taken a cottage at tho same

learn, if they are wiso, that Gotham is
tho finest summer resort in tho country,
and perhaps he has learned it
Chauncey M. Depow is ono of those
who find it almost impossible to got rest
and perfect release from business cares
excepting on an ocean steamer. Thcro
aro many such, and not tho least prized
enjoymont of a European trip to thotn is
tho Impossibility of receiving letters,
telegrams and callers on tho way across.
CLEVELAND AS A FlSHKIt.MAN
Mr. Depow put olf his vacation twice
this yeur for reasons that havo excited
many good uutured smiles among hi
friends; first, because he had to stand
trial on a criminal charge, and second
becauso his mother-in-law was ill He
was acquitted and sho is better.
Editors aro supposed to be among the
hardest worked men on earth, and some
of them no doubt are, but when they
get near the top of the ladder they take
plenty of vacations. James Gordon Ben
nett, for example, probably allows him
self many weeks a year of almost unin
terrupted vacation. Tho Pulitzers seem
of late to bo emulating him in this re
spect, though Tho World proprietor has
tho excellent reason of impaired health
to serve as an excuse for laying business
aside. All three are in Europe.
Charles A. Dana is an exception to
most rules that govern ordinary hu
manity He is at all times an enormous
worker aud an enthusiastic devotee of
rational enjoyment Somebody said of
him lately that his idea of fun wus to le
finding out all about something that he
didn't know before. Ho has a town house
and a country place, for ho Is very rich,

prevent him from making frequent
sometimes daily trips to Tho Sun office
Of tho people of less fame it would be
easy to write many columns, describing
their haunts and their pursuits during

particular circles would caro to read it

A Kettoih (Kan Who Nearly Came

Just boforo the shower tho other day a
man rushed Into one of the big State street
dry goods stores, selected n seven dollar
umbrella and said to tho salesman)
"I want this charged. I want to tako It
with me, ami I'vo Just thirty minutes to
catch my train."
"What namor" languidly inquired the
"O. Little, Kenosha," replied tho man.
"Got an account? "
"Had ono for flvo yeare."
"Aro you Mr. Llttlef"
Tho salesman called over a floorwalker
and explained that Mr. O. Little, of Keno

brella which ho wanted to havo charged
and tako with him.
"Um-ahl" said tho floorwalker. "1

"Well, I'm her husband, and I pay tho

"Um-alil" said tho floorwalker. "You

Mr. Little thought a moment and said

and not down that day. Mr. Llttlo grew
red and hot and tho floorwnlkor pompous.
Mr. Llttlo finally recollected that ho know
a man at tho glovo counter, ono Mr. Kldd.
Unfortunately it was discovered that Mr.
Kldd had gouo to lunch. Mr. Llttlo grew
desperate aud tho floorwalker suspicious
Mr. Llttlo didn't know anybody else In the
storo or out of It, and showed a pocketful
of letters addressed to "O. Little, Kenosha,

away with him besides, He argued, threat

Suddenly he mado a frantla grab at his

wildly for an Instant, and then exhibited
