Tlioro Is irohnbly no ot in journalism which American iiovnmHT men doslro bo much ns that of London correspondent, Tho nlttmtlon In not only hlfthly lmld hut it involves no email deirrco of dignity and importunco. To he 3,000 iiilles from the K'-i of your city editor In it relief to oven tho most conscientious, hard working wrltoM, The London correspondent Is its nearly his own master ns any man can ho who is attached to a dally newspaper, It is understood that at so great a distance from tho homo oftico Ills judgment must lie rolled upon, and no wise concern thinks of assigning it man to Loudon without expecting to rely upon tho cor respondent's discretion and faithfulness. It ought to follow, then, that tho hand ful of American reporters in this city should bo tho cream of tho profession, Whether that is so in every instance tho writer cannot say, but ho has found them an Interesting lot of fellows, faith ful nml Industrious. "Industrious" might seem to bo n mis nomer to somo of tho rank and (lie in America, if thoy should take a casual glance at tho men as thoy appear in tho corridors and smoking rooms of tho great hotels, For just an Instant tho Ameri can reporter might think that these boys wero having a good time nml devoting themselves assiduously to good dress, luxurious apartments and dignified oaso generally. Tho judgment would bo a mistaken one. That thoy havo a good time Is pretty certain, for they enjoy their work, and for tho most of thorn tho work takes them necessarily to places where men of wealth and position congregate. While tho correspondent is chatting with a group of men ho is on tho qui vivo for an item of news, or n story for his Sunday letter. There is a pinto for him at important banquets, ho Is welcomed at many social functions, and in other respects which reporters know all about ho is an established ilg tiro in English life. Not more than threoorfourof tho cor respondents are concerned in furnishing "routine" news; that is, stock quota tions, market reiiorts, parliamentary proceedings, ordinary calamities and tho like. AH this is relegated to the great news associations that havo their oftkes hero and their stalTs of local re porters. In three instances Americans are at tho head of tho Loudon ofllces of news associations, but their employees arc, 1 think without exception, English men. To them the London newspapers nro an invaluable aid, and much of their uows is sent directly from tho printed I columns alter mey nave appeared on me street. Tho six hours' dlffereuco in timo between London and Now York makes this a perfectly legitimate and feasible form of news gathering. For Instance, somo of tho Imjiortant evening papers appear at 1 o'clock; it is then but a-few minutes after 7 in Now York, an hour when tho evening nows paper ofllces nro deserted, unless somo energetic office boy has come down tin usually early to clenn up. By wiring the important news of tho day at any timo Ireforo S p. m. tho American papers nro supplied hours before they would think of Issuing an edition. Tho satno thing follows with the morning papers, although tho results aro not quite so satisfactory. It is quite possible, how over, to send everything of Importance iu tho London morning papers so as to reach New ork by midnight, mid every association takes a hand in this kind of ojiernHon. Tho correspondents of theso individual papers do not concern themselves with this manner of hustling. They dovoto their efforts, ns I havo indicated, to get ting inside information, working up siwcial topics, that by tho very reason of their American flavor would not natur ally bo covered by tho Loudon press. Tho dean of the correspondents hero Is, of course, Mr. G. W. Smalley, of the New York Tribune. His appointment dates from the early seventies. Ho lives in a fashionable ueighliorhood and does not mlnglo much with his rivals, who are nearly all much younger than himself and naturally not the most congenial as sociates. Mr. Smalley Is decidedly a fixture iu British society, and it is there ho is best known. Next to him in seniority of appoint ment is Mr. Harold Frederic, tho corre spondent for the New York Times. His career has been a brilliant ono on this side, whoro ho has been statloued for about eight years. He. too. annears to bo n fixture in London, but ho frequent ly makes long trips to tho Continent In the pursuit of special topics. The result of one of these trips was a series of arti cles In Tho Times about the young Ger man emperor. It was theso articles, published In book form a few weeks ago, that inado tho tjreatest llternry sen sation of tho year. It Is not uecessary to speak of Mr. Froderic's novels, for every body knows about them, It mluht also go without saying that ho is preparing another. Ho is never idle, nml oven n newspaper man may wonder how ho finds timo to do all his work. Mr. Arthur Warren represents the Boston Herald. Ho is about tlitrty-ono years old, aud a inau whose outhiiainsm for his profession 1 havo seldom seen equaled. Ho lives in a beautiful apart ment hoiue iu tho district known as Chelsea, and from his windows he com mands a flue view of the Thames, Bat terea park and a great stretch of the Interminable city. By common consent the hardest work ing American newspaper man in London Is Mr. E. Tracy Grenves, correspondent or tho Now York World. Ho has ofllces In Trafalgar square, where you may have a reasonable chance of finding him at any hour of the day or night. Not content with pursuing tho gnmo of news hunting indufatigiilily, ho has recently scented mi American assistant in tho person of Mr John .1 a Becket, the author of many charming short stories In the American magazines Mr. a Becket was attached to Tho Evening Worrl before his recent transfer to this city Tho Now York Sun's "bright young man" Is Mr, Frank Marshall White, at, one timo the literary editor of Life. Mr, Whlto has an otllco on tho Strand, nnd he, like tho others, Is frequently on the Continent on special missions. Every newspaper man, at least, knows his Sun day letter, which iu many resects is the brightest of all tho correspondence sent from this side. Ho lias no regular assist ant, for tho work demanded by The Sun Is not of a character to require tt; hut on Saturdays, when his letter is Iu pieparatlon, ho often lias a half dozen men scouring tho town under his d I lec tion in search of facts. The Now York Herald, long famous for Its foreign nows, Is represented here just now by two men, Messrs. James Creelman 'nml T. B, Fielders. Mr. Fielders enlno hero from tho Now York Times a little more than two years ago, Shortly afterward Mr. Creelman came over to take charge of the Herald's Lon don edition. Since then, however, ho lias boon flying about all over Europe nnd writing all manner of articles that have had great sensational interest by reason of tho topics treated. It Is worth recalling that It was ho who secured tho famous Interview with tho pope, and more recently ho has published a set controversy between himself and Count Tolstoi nbout tho "Tho Kreutzer Son aU." A short timo ago Mr. Creelman was detailed to London, and he aud Fielders aro co-oporating iu the work of sending nows to America. There is another American newspaper man hero connect ed with Tho Herald iu tho capacity ot editor of tho Sunday paper. This Is Mr. Italpli B. Blumcufeld. Ho had been fot a long timo tho city editor of Tho Tele gram, Tho Herald's evening edition in Now York. Under his management the London paper has become very prosper ous, and appears to be still moving on to that respectful recognition which Eng gllsh people aro bo slow to grant tc American enterprises. Among other young Americnn news paper men now stationed iiero nro Mr. II. J. W. Dam, correspondent for the Now York Recorder; Mr. Louis Moore representative of tho United Press; Mr. Walter Knlen", chief of tho Associated Press oflleo, and Mr. Horace Townsond. formerly a Now York Tribune reporter. Both Messrs. Dam and Townsund are writing rather more for tho English press than for tho American, and Dam has brought himself somewhat to the front by u play "Diamond Deano" which was produced at tho Vaudeville last March. Nearly all theso men appear to regard London ns a permanent residence, for tho bachelors among them have fitted up comfortable chambers (English for apartments) and the married men have taken long leases of houses or tints Some of the bachelors, like Creelman are babbling of marriage when the leaves havo fallen. Nearly nil aro club men, the famous Savage claiming their first alleglc.ice, of course, nnd tho Nn tionnl Liberal coming perhaps second. FiiKiir.HicK R. Burton Yollllif CIlTL') llivn.

Sfnce his suspension from tho ministry lie has preached to large congregations in every city he hns visited, and has had mnnv requests to lecture and to write foi "'. L-aziues. Mr. MacQueary's book, Evolution of Man and Christian!- had a remarkable sale for n tho . work but a littlo over a year old. Thomas Dixon, Jr., is another lie preacher who has attracted a great deal of attention during tho past year. But, although aggressive and strongly per sonal, hesitating not to speak on tho subjects of the day, to attack our sys tem of politics and to condemn those In high places he may deem guilty, he. nevertheless, is thoroughly orthodox. His church the Twenty-third Street Baptist, Now York soon proved too small to accommodate tho crowds that flocked to hear the bold, magnetic preacher. Tho beautiful little church was closed, and the congregation had to seek temporary quarters iu tho large As sociation Hall of the Y. M. C. A. Ml. Dlxou is n North Carolinian, thirty years of ago, the son of a clergyman and lias two brothers iu the ministry He is a littlo over six feet tall, is wiry, smooth shaven aud gaunt looking. Probably the youngest bishop in the Uulted States is the recently elected assistant bishop of Louisiana, Rev. David Sessums. He is practically bishop, inas much ns tho physical Infirmities of Bishop Galleher render him unfit for ceremonial duties. Mr. Sessums was born at Hous ton.Tex,, InlSJS. Ho was graduated from the University of tho South, Sewauee, Tenn,, with first honors, in his twenty first year, and In 1832 he was admltt to tho priesthood. Tbuiniis llnlley Aldrlch.

The early riser turned around to see what had shut on the water so suddenly, itmllliu funny man laughed at him. "Get off that liose.l" exclaimed the early riser, "Oh, don't mind me," said tho funny man "Oo on and water your grass." 'I'll en he noticed that the no.rlu was care lessly pointed Iu Ills direction. "I lore! Point that tho othur way." he cried Tho early riser glanced down nt the noz rlu and Ills face lit up with pleasure. "Amusing to shut ol n man's water, Isn't Itr" he asked "But, my dear sir," expostulated the funny man, "I didn't" "It's Intensely funny," said tho early riser, "you'd better get off that hose." "But I can't," said the funny man, "Don't you see the nozzle's pointed right at me, and If I do" "Oh, well, I'm In no hurry," Interrupted the early riser "If you enjoy It 1 don't know that I have any reason to object." Hu sat down on the railing surrounding his grass plat and rested the nozzle on his knee, still keeping it pointed toward the funny man. "I say," said the latter, "It you'll turn that the other way I'll get olT." "Oh, I wouldn't put you to so much trouble," snld the early riser. "Enjoy yoursolf," The early riser held the nozzle between his knees while hu took out a cigar and lit it. The funny man watched him pull It for a moment. Then hu saldt "See here, old man, my leg's cottlng HtllT." "Why don't you shift legs?" asked the early riser disinterestedly. The funny man tried It, made a slip, nnd tho stream almost reached him before he could Ket his foot on the hose iikuIii. The early riser chuckled. "Say, I'll break your headl" cried the funny man excitedly, "All right," returned tho early riser carelessly. "But be careful or you may slip olT the lioiu again," The funny man ulared nt the early riser a moment and then said: "If I were as mean as you are I'd go into thu pawnbrokers' business." "If I wero as funny us you aru," said the early riser as hu leisurely pulled his cl'ar, "I'd hire out to a burle.xipio company." The funny man tried to walk along the hose to gut farther away from the nozzle, but thu water spurted out a little with each step nnd hu stopped. Then he go desperate, stepped olT, and started to run. Thu stream caught him in the middle of thu back. When hu got out of raugu he turned nnd shook his fist at thu Impassive early riser and made some terrible threats. And the early riser muttered ns hu began watering thu grass again: "Funny that n funny man can't take a Jokuon himself." Chicago Tribune That ,Vn- All. It seems that thu word "gentleman" In subject, iu one country at least, to the misconceptions so frequently attendant on the hardly used term "lady." The author of "A Colonial Tramp" gives the follow ing Instance of such an absurd and mis taken phrasing: When we wero at Port Said, Iu passing down one of the side streets we missed our little guldu for u moment, and as he had our parcels wo looked round to see if he had not run oil with them. Upon that we became aware of a dark, evil looking and dirty half caste of some kind, culling him nbout at an alley corner. Wo turned to Klve assistance to our little friend, and the bully left off and shuffled once more Into shadow. "Is thai your father?" I asked, guessing at the fact for thu reason that tho boy had not resisted very much, and now shook himself together without olTcriug any ex planation. "My fader No, sar," with great scorn. "He ono dirty thief gentleman wauling the parcels, that's all." "Oh. that's all, Is It?" "Yes, sar, he gentleman who waits nt dark corners when Englishman pass at night and stab." Youth's Companion. Wlllinin llolluri'il. A woman with n bundle iu a shawl strap accosted a policeman in Union Square park the other day with the announcement that her husband was lost. They were coming down town from tho depot and had got off at Fourteenth street by mistake, nnd while he was looking around for his bearings he bad wandered away. The officer suggested that she go to a hotel, but after thinking it over for awhile she replied: "Vn I mifi&a I'll stnv rlc?hr. Iiprn for awhile longer. I'm expecting to hear him holler every mlnit." "Will he call to you?" "1 think ho will. There he goes uow; that's William's bazoo." Down toward Fifth avenue was heard a noise which seemed to bun sort of combi nation of fog horn aud boiler explosion, nnd the woman picked up her bundle and continued: "That's William, and 1 can go straight to him. Thnt's tho way he stauds In our back door aud calls up the hired man from the back lot, only he's a little scan and nln't hollerin only about half as loud us usual." New York Evening World.
