NAMES AND FACES.
A Gift of Memory Which la a Kind
of Flattery Hard to Beslet.
I Other Mejntarrrlrka) mt tke.Mttae Sarrt
-ar. Ulalae'a) JlesairaBaaBBi
Detroit Fwe rresa.
Tbe memory of tbe just Is blessod ; so Is the
memory of an adroit politician ; at least it la
blessed good thing to have. The faculty of
associating a face with its owners name, ana
to recall tbe circumstances under which It was
last aeen ; to bring up a whole set of Ideas
about tbe talk tbe politician than had; what
tho politician said, and what the man said, la
often mere valuable to one in politics than
honesty, learning and state manual p. To be
remembered by a distingnisbeu notorious
man wbo knows so many people, and whose
mind must be full of all sorts of things la a
kind of flattery hard to resist. It means
that you are not a very inngniucant person
after all. or yon would not have made such
an impression upon the busy and eager poli
tician. There must have been something
about you that made him remember not only
your name but what you did or said. For
the moment, at least, you forget that this is
only a special faculty in this man, a trick of
the mind which enables bim to remember
your neighbor, who may be much stupider
and less remarkable than you, just as well as
he remembers yourself; that be will
go to the nest houso and greet
the wife there witb the same
cordiality and pick out the children just as
correctly and ask how that flue baby is do
ing, with just as much heartiness. In other
words that it is not a special mark of inter
est in you at all, but only a kind of sleight-of-hand
performance which makes you think
yon are a finer man than other people think
you are, or, perhaps, than you know yourself
It is of a piece with other mental tricks of
the same sort. Rome can remember dates;
some birthdays; some have a special faculty
for places, and need to be in a town or woods
or on a mountain but once, in order to be
perfectly familiar with them. Borne horse
men become so expert that they recognize
borses with the greatest ease, though
they may only have seen them trotting
along the road or careering over the pastures.
Herders become so expert that they have
been kuowii to distinguish their own cattlo
iu a herd at au incredible distance away.
But horses, cattle, mountains, rocks,
streets, rivers, buildings and forest cannot be
nattered by this expert faculty. They have
no votes or influence. It may be flattering
to the indi vidua, but it Is not flattering to the
community that this way of tickling men's
vanity governs citizens so much in their
choice of the man to make or execute their
laws. Yet very sensible men are often af
fected in their judgements by the personal
attitude which a candidate "puts ou
If he shows that he remembers you, and re
minds you where he last saw you, half a
dozen years ago, and asks whether you
bought the bouse or sold tbe farm you were
talking about at that time, forthwith you are
apt to think that man better fitted to tax you
and appropriate your money, or make laws
for you than another man who may have
many other virtues, but lacks this one.
Mr. Blaine has tbe reputation of being en
lowed with this gift. A story has been lately
n the rounds, attributed to Mr. Tharman, in
which Mr. Blaine is represented as greeting
An Ohio farmer after several years'
Absence and asking him If he
''had broken that colt," which he
was driving when Blaine had seen him pre
viously. This story is met by a direct con
tradiction of Mr. Blaine's ability to recall
faces. According to this authority, it is an
Idea assiduously cultivated by Mr. Blaine,
but as a matter of fact there are few public
men who have poorer recollection of names
find faces than be. The belief in this faculty
if his is founded on what has been industri
ously said about his possession of it not on
the faculty itself. A witness of the incident
testifies that once, in a drawing-room car,
he saw Mr. Blaine ask the conductor the
name of a gentleman near him. When he
learned the name the statesman arose, ad
dressed the gentleman by name, left a few
moments, consulted a memorandum book,
and coming back related a circumstance oc
curring at a previous meeting, and which the
witness believes was recorded in the little
But even if this were true, it should make
very little difference. If a man is a great
statesman because be can tickle you by refer
ring to the memorandum in his brain, he it
just as great a statesman as if he flattered
you by consulting a well-arranged and well
indexed note book. It Is only a question of
method. His votes are just as sound, his
-peech just as eloquent, his public
character" as honest and noble, whether
Ue employs the means for making
you feel good which nature gave him or the
means which his own ingenuity with paper
and pencil invented. In either case the
method came from the man's brain, and
ought not really to affect his reputation for
political sagacity, adroitness, courage or
whatever else most distinguishes him. Ilia
interest in you is just as ardent and intense,
whether be resorts to his memory or his mem
orandum. In neither case does he give you a
moment's thought after he has effected his
object. All he wants is to make you think
that you are a very important person iu his
eyes, and that your remarkable self has left
an undying impression upon his great mind.
Thought They Were Antelope.
The Arkansaw cow is perhaps the most
athletic animal of her species. She may be
reduced in flesh, but her horns are always in
a flourishing condition. She seems to have
been intended more for the production of
born than milk.
Some time ago a party of gentlemen from
New Tork came to this state for the purpose
of engaging in an extensive deer hunt. They
went out among tbe hills and turned loose
their hounds. A wild and exciting chase im
mediately began. The gentlemen were
in hick; they had not dared
to wish for such easily acquired
sport. The deer fled along the hillside, and
strange to say, kept in tbe paths. The ex
cited dogs howled and exerted every nerve,
but they could not catch the wild antelope.
Along toward evening a farmer came upon
the party and angrily exclaimed :
"I'm a good mind to shoot you fellows.
You ain't got no sense."
"We did not know that this land was
posted," replied the leader of the party.
'Posted tbe devil f" vociferated the farmer,
"you are chasing my cows."

As our reporter farmed from the Fifth
avenue down Fourteenth street tbe other day
ha saw a crowd gazing at tbe second story of
a bouse. Behind a broad window witb two
largu panes of glass appeared the objects
which ware attracting the, attention of tbe
crowd. & hind tbe lower pane was a broad
piece of canvass on which the name of a
summer hotel was painted in large black let
ters; behind the upper glass was a scene
which gave in - good perspective an idea of
the bouse and surroimJing . It seems a
tttcturoBiQUO sunuBtAr rosora ri? of the
nou-tf su-etctied a ras of tCi 'saouataias.
Some of too peaks were ee kh that fleecy
white clouds railed their summits. From
the hotel a path lad through a sloping lawn
to a lake. Ko far tbe picture represented all
that was described on the canvas underaeeth,
except the announcement that there was good
flnhlno- in the lake. Suddenly, however, ere
I this was rsaiiaaxl A man was- seen pattta

stoppod rowing shipped his oars, lifted a
fishing rod from the bottom of the boat, and
cast tbe line Into tho water. Then he re
mained motionless as if Intently watching the
line. With a sudden jerk of the rod be
landed a fish in the boat. This was repeated
several times, until at last he appeared to
have causrbt fish enough. lie put down his
rod, grasped the oars, and pulled back to
shore. Tbe last seen of him ho was walking
toward tbe hotel witb a string of fish.
Kuddenly the canvass dropped. In its
place behind the lower pane appeared an
other, which called upon all people to consult
only a certain physician In case of illness.
Above this the scene represented a New York
street. Among the bouses was one with i
physician's sign.' An old man nearly ben
double came hobbling down tbe street on a
crutch until be got to tbe physician's house
and rang tbe 111. A pleasant-looking man,
presumably tbe physician, let him in. After
a while a boy with an arm In a sling came
from the other direction, and rang. This
time the door was opened by a girl, probably
because tbe physician was busy attending to
the first patient. This patient was followed
by a pale and debiltated-looking individual,
and he by another, who appeared to be cough
ing and in the last stages of consumption,
These also were admitted by the glrL After
a while tbe door opened again, and out came
the old man, firm and erect, briskly twirling
his cane. A little later the boy came out, but
bis arm was no longer in tho sling. On the
contrary he swung it freely as he walked
along. Tbe pale and debilitated-looking
man made his exit whistling. . Tho consump
tive who had seemed to bo tottering oa tbe
brink of tbe grave came out witb the bloom
of roses on his cheeks.
Presto change 1 Tbe canvas went down
and the streets disappeared. The name of a
theatre was displayed behini tho upper. A
horse car stopped In front of tbe theatre, which
every passenger entered. A stage drove up
with the same results. Then oaniagos and
coupes halted at the theatre, which seemed
to be attracting everybody In the city. Fin
ally a sign appeared, "No mors standing
Ar -'her change. This time it was a bi
cycle advertisement, and . bicyclers were
speeding their steel racers on the track above.
As tbe rep rter started across the street to
inspect matters more closely, Sullivan and
Mitchell were having a fierce set-to.
Entering the room on the second floor, the
reporter saw near the window a light trestle
work. Rouud about were lying strios of
sunsets, bine skies, storm clouds, and all
varieties of heavens; pasteboard men and
women, witb numerous strings attached to
their limbs; cars, stages, houses on a small
scale, all the paraphernalia of a theatrical
scene were there.
T' ong, broad strips of pasteboard lay
on the or. Over them stood a man with a
large brush, which he dipped into a pot of
gray paint and then applied to the paste
board, making a line of grayish bouses and
churches. Then he painted in black dots for
windows and doors, adding a strip of green
and yellow for grass and a road.
"It's done roughly, you Bee," he paid, "but
it looks all right from below. It makes a
difference whether you're near a thing, or
stand on the street and eae it in the second
story through a pane of glass. Fine work
doesnt tell at that distance."
"What are you going; to rep
resent nowP the reporter asked of the man
wbo was just changing the canvas.
"Tbe storming of Alexandria," be replied.
The reporter watched him arranging the
set of pasteboard over the trestle work. He
suspended a strip of lurid sky from the black
bar. A littlo forward and below was another
bar with upright bars at either end. On the
bar and above tbe upi ighta he put a strip
representing the city. Further toward the
window were two other upright bars.
Against these be placed two forts. On a cross
bar a little lower below be hung a strip rep
resenting water. The trestlework was a small
stage in scaffolding. The whole sloped down
toward the window. One man took two
pasteboard " ironclads with portholes, and
lighted a cigar. As he moved the ironclads
just behind the strip representing water he
puffed smoke through the portholes. The
other man then held a piece of burning paper
"Do you fit up these advertisements in shop
windows f he was asked.
"Yes. But we think it to the advertiser's
advantage to have his advertisement appear
in this window, because we are on one of the
most crowded thoroughfares of the city. Ws

Cor. Inter Ocean.
At tho outbreak of the American rebellion,
Tbe London Times was almost omnipotent in
the influencing of public opinion in Denmark
on American affairs. In fact the commercial
and financial relations between Denmark
and England are very close. The Times took
special pains to make it appear that the Con
federates were fighting for liberty, and de
served the sympathy of the Liberals of
Europo, and that the Union men of the north
were the oppressors. Mr. De Bille, late Dan
ish minister to ATasbington, earnestly be
lieved such to be tbe case and so repre
sented. At that time the Danish senti
ment was so generally in accord with
the southern states that the representative
of Che Confederacy, and even some of the
rebel cruisers, were attracted to Copenhagen.
Bradford Wood, a venerable ex-member of
congress, was at that time American minister
at the Court of the Dane. He tried faithfully,
but unavailingly, to counteract tbe British
influence. It was at that time that Mr.
Schneider, of your city, formerly editor of
the German organ of the northwest, appeared
upon tbe charge. Had he carried tbe wand
of a magician, he could not have wrought a
greater change, or done it more swiftly. He
had been appointed by Mr. Lincoln consul to
Elsinore, one of the principal shipping
points of Denmark, with the - special
understanding that he was to devote
himself to influencing the press - In
favor of tbe Union, and to changing public
sentiment among the Danes. Soon after his
arrival at Copenhagen he called on Mr. Do
Bille,' explained the situation in the United
States, and from a copy of tbe iiaper which
he bad, The Staats Zeitung, I believe it was,
he showed that the Scandinavians in America
had all taken sides with tho Union, and that a
Danish military company in Chicago, under
Captain Frese,had joined a German regiment,
tbe Twenty-fourth Illinois, and thus snowed
that the chronic animosity between Germans
and Donee had been forgotten in enthusiasm
for the cause of the Union. - This fact and
similar facts brought forward by Mr. Schnei
der convinced the warm-hearted De Bille, and
the very next morning, be- opened tbe bat

A Plea for Los II on sea.
New York Tribune.
Here is an Idea for tbe tens of thousands of
nature-loving city people wbo are rearing
paste-board villas on every sea beach and
mountain top. Tbe ubiquitous Queen Anne
cottage is becomming almost as much of a
horror to the traveler as the frantio adjura
tion to "Buy Jones's Uendrako Fills."
Why not let Queen Anne sleep, and build
log houses A log house Is warm In winter
and cool . in summer. It is unpretentious,
cheap, and, if modeled after the ancient Nor
wegian dwelling, highly picturesque. Timber
houses from Norway are now imported into
England, the abundance of forests and low
rates of labor making thorn cheap. Tho
beams of the second story project
over the lower, and the ends ' of
these heavy timbers with the arches of
the porches and roofs are carved
heavily. The entire bouse is constructed of
wood, tho wainscoting being of tho richly
tinted native deals, and the floors of oak,
polished and varnished. But Instead of tho
flimsy card-board edifice in which Americans
with their inexhaustible wealth of forests de
light, the Norwegian house Is broad, solid,
richly carved, its varied exterior giving fine
effects of light and shade, and when set
among trees it offers tbe type of a beartsome,
enduring home. -
The Gentleman With the Thlsi Grip
sack. New York World.
He was a greasy looking citizen. His grip
sack was so thin that he could have boned a
ham with it. As be laid It on a Sixth avenue
baker's counter he remarked to tbe young
girl who was tending bar:
" 'Swarm day."
"It are," she responded, as she picked off
the end of a round-heart.
"How much is pies?"
"Twenty cents apiece."
"I don't want a piece, I want a whole one."
"All the big bugs have gone to Europe I"
he continued, "and I'm afraid 111 have to go
too. Do you see that grip! Full of bonds!
I'm sorry I did it, but if I give myself up
they'll lock me up in the Fifth Avenue hotel,
and I could never stand the disgrace. How
much Is doughnuts?" and he wiped his nose
on his kalsomined sleeve.
"How much is crullersf
"Gimme a pound, an' two pounds of that
cake witb all tbe bugs in it. Also put me up
three ov tbem red pies with tbe oourt-plaster
They were wrapped up for him.
"D. n't let anybody touch that grip until I
put these things in the carriage."
Nobody touched it until the baker came in
a couple of hours later and kicked it all
around the block.
Anecdote of Mothers.
New York World.
A Philadelphia bill-printer relates this an
ecdote of Sot hem: "A lady in bis company
who played a very minor part gave herself
an extraordinary amount of airs at rehearsal.
So tbem came here and ordered a bill to be
printed with tbe lady's name starred in large
type, 'supported by the following ladies and
gentlemen,' and then followed tbe names of
the company, ending up with Sothern's in
tbe smallest type of all Tbe bill was hung
up in the theatre and tbe young lady's pride
came down several pegs."

The little one hesitated a moment, half opened
her heavy eyelids, and then continued, paus

A Charity Boy With qneer Ideas
Have you, kind reader, in your store of
memories a strain that sounds of adversity, a
chord that was touched by woe? Has your
mind swayed in the trembling balance of
dispair, and has your heart ached under tbe
ruthless lashing of disappointment? Do not
let your answer be a light scoff or a sympa
thetic yes, but grant roe my request and look
at that boy in the street, as be stands on the
curb of the gutter with his bag beside bim
half full of chips picked up In the alleys and
corners. He is poorly clad, and barefooted,
and dirty, and his eyes evade yours. - Is it
shame, or depravity, or both, that causes him
to shrink from you? You say he is contented,
he does not know any better. . You under
estimate your image in soul and body, who
could look upon well-dressed children and
not see tbe difference in enjoyment and privi
leges. But he is going; let me speak to him.
"My young friend, why do you gather chips
in this mannerf '
"To cook with.'
''Precisely. But are there no friends or
good people wbo will assist you kindly?"
"Oh, yesl There are the Associated Chari
ties, who always give mother plenty of good
"Dont they season their good will witb
something more substantial P
"They tell her how to live on 10 cents a day,
and to help herself."
"Very good; but don't they prevent in that
way many lazy people from supporting them
selves in idleness I"
"They may for all I know, but Pm sure we
never got any too much before we ever beard
of them. When we were first told that they
had appointed an agent, it was said, and we
thought that we could get something every
week, bnt instead of that they encourage us
to work and get .our own living. Mother
cant do it all herself and have me go to
school, but if I belp her we manage to squeeze
"Don't you like to work and help your
"That isn't It at all If I could go to school
she would be much more pleased than she is
at seeing me help her. There are lots of poor
people wbo wont ask for belp, and they're
the best off. People that are rich and well
fixed don't know what it is to be poor, and
their advice isn't good for much. One who
has even been poor hardly ever thinks to give
advice instead of money, because be knows
of how little good it is. Then I suppose many
of these people wbo want to be so good
wouldn't think of giving mother any mor
than her dues for a bard day's work of wash
ing, just because they say she is poor and
hasn't got the right to save a cent. I should
think that where poor folks save some of the
money that is given tbem that they are tbe
ones who should get it. But I hear that when
anyone saves a cent, no more spondulix
there I guess if we want to live we must
take care of ourselves, besides having an
agent come and see that we do it to every
