A Mermaid .Made to Order.
A Phila le!phia iiw'-:er of curiosities led n
reporter into a tiack ron-.u nl in front of a
case atiout five feet in length. XVitlnn, iu a
partially recumbent picture, was the famous
mermaid. A more hideous creuture it would
be diltiCiilt to imagine. It was a concentra
tion if nightmares, goixons, gritlins and
chiineras tlire. The monstrosity Kfifl I?n
van.ibhd and is of a dep brown. The head
is that of one of the monkey tribe: glass eyes
have been inserted so us to give a life-like ap
pearance, and the face turned toward the
spectator grins a ghastly siutlf through two
rows of jagg1 te"tb. The arms are long and
huny. The punts of juncmreof the bands and
the arm are ingeniously iMiiceuled by the
lung, sweeping hair, winch is parted nire
lessly at the loj of t.lie head The flg.irc
rests partly upon the right, arm and hand,
the left lieing carried Itackward and curled
up to the side of the head, giving the creature
the fabled appearanco of the si 'a maiden ws
she rombnd her long brown locks. The latter
also hides the ioint of union of the head nnJ
lsnly. the latter being unmistakably that vt a
large fish, protMtbly a h;iddock.
"XVhat do you think of her''" nt last aslcvl
the builder as the spectator finished his exaro
innthm. "Ain't she a lairker." he nilhl, au
swering his own mit-stion. "It's part fish, as
you can h, and that's real hair. Tho head
of a monkey. I won't say how it was done
or what's inside of it, hot il took nio itliout
two mouths to get it up. XX'lien yiu count
ray time and all it's cheap at what I ask for
it, a hundred ami a quarter (J li)."

A rag man who was walking through east
Seventeenth yesterday, bowling "Hags,
bots," smidenly liecumo quiet, slapped his
batHl to his left eye, and then ran rapidly
toward Sivoud avonuo. In the ilistniico a
small loy grew .smaller and smaller. The
rag man gave tip th chase and turned into
Second avenue. Tlien tho boy eainu back,
and stationing himself in an area, waited
for more victims. Iu - his hand he held a
bow aliout eight'oa inches long. A small
bole was cut in the center of tho bo- h rough
which ran tho shaft of an arrow. T1k boy
bad a pocketful of bard clay balls. Ho put
one on the bead of tho arrow, pulled Ixick
tbe string, and let fly. The arrow was sud
denly stopped by a shoulder near the butt
cud, and the clay ball rlewoir with a velocity
approaching that of a pistol shot.
This contrivance Is becotuiug poular with
tho boys, and it is said lo Lu a f jriiiiJabla
rival to the toy pistol.

Tln-re nro no iieuypiijM-rs to read, fci.i! one
cannot always Li: pvi'oig over a bx.k. It is
iinf'irnl that men should seek relief lioin

"Are there not men, skillful players, who
make it a habit of crosKing tbe oceuii many
times a year, readily paying their paosago
and making a good pro'U out of their win
nings at play!"
"There may such men, and if tbey get
on board of our ships it is tho duty of tho
steward.- to look out for them. A face will
boccme familiar after a while and if the per
miii is a blackleg or sharper the steward will
viiow how to deal with him. We cannot
refuse passage even to such jiersout where
they pay thi.ir faro iu advance, for we aro
common carriers under the law, but the
steward can control the gentleman's ojicra
mous. In cue case which 1 lemeiubor. the
steward at tho very out-set privately told one
of those gentry that it he caught him playing

smoking-room. That was an effectuul 'Jim-l.-i.
The sharjier did not touch a card dur

It is not our regular voyagers who partici
pate iu the pools," said a manager at tbo
Cuuard oflico. "Thoy are for the most part
elderly men who travel a certain nura.tr of
timos every year for commercial purposes
and whose sailing we can piistict like clock
work. To them thu novelty of all this lias
worn off a long time since. It is tho young
blood and theatrical icoplc, making their
bird, trips, who ai-o the most eager to put up
:heir money. Tburo is a fascination about it
w nidi attracts people who would not go near
a gambling-house on shore. It gives them
.tmctbiug to spuculato upon and talk about,
uu-1 serves to while away the tinio which

XX'hea Capel first spoko hero his delivery
was marked by that infernal Anglicism
which madi Dickens so odious and l-.ro-so:ne.
namely, t.ho rising inflection at. tho
oil of every sfinto-.iee. Ymi always felt
' when hearing fJickons as though you wanted
to jump on him au I pull him down to tbe
terminal landing pluc which h.i persistently
in I ofTeiisively avoided. I ilon't think there
was ever u tjctter illustration of how odious
genius can lie than was nifordod in the read
ing of Mr. Dickens At that time I was
employed ou The Brooklyn Eagle an I slung
my little po as dramatic critio. Of ne
essity, 1 saw Mr. Dicki-ns repoateilly, whom
1 fortunately met in private as well as in
public, lie wo.- Iiusiniss from the top of his
bold bond to the bottom of bis foot He w is
here for one purpose to make and keep the
sreat American dollar. He wor himself
out in tb" effort t recoup his fortun. That
he modi a i.-etiiendous pile wo all know, and
doubtless were vory g.'ad. I was, for one.
But it. is my solemn convict-Ion that he didn't
spend during his stay here $ I Oil. He gave
nothing away, and his expenses wnro all
defrayed by tho Htoplo who brought
hiua over. Like all Englishmen of
his gradiv, Dickens was a very
heavy drinker. I shall never forget
going into a little room oir Plymouth church
lecture room, and rinding there a bottle of
brandy and two bot tles of champagne which
were brought fot- tho doloctatiou of the
reader, who, to l sure, asked one or two
gentlemen then? to join in tho ceremony, but
his acting was a shallow farce, for while they
did have an opportunity of touching glasses
onee. he allowed it to lie clearly and dis
tinctly understood that tbe refreshments were
there foi him, and not for his fricn-ls. After
drinking a giod deal. Dickens liecame red ill
th faco, and his readi- g, which was luid a;
all times, degenerated into a most tedious
process. Mr. Thackeray, after drinking, be
came talkative aud gcr.ial and goixi-nutured
and pleasant, and showed himself nn ami.i
Lle old gentleman I)i-kcus ilidn't. He was
cross. irnL-iMo and in-.irosi, and it was never
a ilillicidt matter to get him into a heated
f.ud ctl'cnsive discussion.

riio Very Lively Halls Whleh the
CadetM Enjov Three Time a Week.
New York Sun.
Tho cadet balls which occur hero threo
times a week during the munmer encnmii-
ntTt have a delicious flavor of old-fa hi fined
cbDdnn's partifw about them. They U-gin nt
8 and end at 10 tLarp. Ihi'-lo Snrn privi-i
a foo-l lall room ami ten musicians, and the
cadets provide the guests. The oilh-crs mag'
naniniously stay away except the supcrin
tendeiit and his wife, who punctiliously ac
cept the invitations tendered them. Tha
only preparation tho cadets can make is to
put on their freshest laundriod w Into duck
trousers ami scrub their alrealy sliming
faces. Their trousers are objects of much
solicitude with the.n. Th'?y rigidly avoid sit
ting down at Hm balls, for fear that their
kns should acquire a tmggy and civdi in
look, and it may Im saul that the military
tailor bo makes their trousers is a jieifect
roaster of the inysU'ry' f fitting.
About Mo'cliM-k Iu the evening iimumrit. In
white-legged and I mb tail -coated young men
assemble in front of the academic building
containing the ball r'om, where the omnibres
d-iosit the blooming youn ladies, who make
the cadets' heurts In-ut beneath I heir ill. fly
padded jackets. Having only two hours of
revelling to count on, they luive got tho
question of time down line. Every dunn 1
engaged for, and tho intervals lietwecti the
dances are infinitesimal. These iKiyssh iw
in tbeir fresh faces and lithe forms the bciio-
flr. of the regular hours, wholesome fare, and
healthy discipline. The continual attention
of the riding master, the fencing master, and
the dancing master is tibown iu th.-ir deport
ment. The bad manners of many society
men would need no better foil than the poliUi
attention to their gu'jsts to tliase cadeti.
Punctually at 8 tho band strikes up, and
the whirling begins. Everything dances;
the hob-tailed coats scintillate, tho wh.to
trousered legs twinkle, and the ecstatic young
ladies are In tbe Elysian fields. Chupcroncs
at tfieso white balls are of small account.
Thcieisno danger of couples straying oir;
the cadet is cngagel for every dancv. and
there is very little time for sentiment. The
baud plays a kind of boppity-skippify 'Uinp
music tliat is highly aDpropriate tri the occa
sion. The fact that the assemblage is rather
youthful must, however, be studiously
avoided in conversation. The cadets speak
of each other always as men. The cadat of
ficers, with sashes tie! around their slim
waists, aro considered terrible fellows among
the girls by the rest of th corps. At the
lialls, the girl who gets an adolescent officer
with a sash is looked upon us u mortal
blessed by the gxls.
The two hours slip by liko lightning. At a
quarter to 10 a cadet with a drum appears at
the door of the lm.ll room. The band twists
"Home, Sweet Home" into a queer sort, of
waltz, the cadets, meanwhile, dancing for ail
they are worth now in these last few pre
cious minutes. Then the band slides into
"Take Back I ho Heart," dono as aiioth. i
waltz, a highly appropriate and suggestive
air, seliH-ted on purpose as a final warning to
tbe young ladies, and suddenly the drummer,
who has been eyeing tlie clock, seizes his
drum sticks, and a loud rattle, rattle, hang
whir-r-r resounds. It is like the crack of
doom. Every blessed little cadet tucks h:
paitner under his arm ard makes a da.sh for
tbe doorway. The young ladies who wauf
to tm escorted to their omnibuses are quick
in getting nn their wraps, and in half an
bouf from the rolling of the drum llicgirK

most popular t.ost-.-lry of ita time in the city
It Is not generally known that this house is
still in existence, but such is in reulity the
case. It was removed one b'ock northwest
of its original site, where, iu a much-improved
and remodeled state, it now sta.ids,
tiearing no suggestion of antiquity in its out
ward appearance. Many anecdotes are i-r
lubl of this hotel, mid of the scenes and '.j
cidents which occurred there Some of the

would jump out of 1-e.l, hurry himself into

progress. But imagine his overwhelming
a-i-uzement and confusion when, on rushing
into the cuisine of the hotel, where breakfast
was in coursi' of preparation, he wouhl be
coolly informed that lu was alarming hiui-s-lt
