Writ IrrMl Dcotroyem Who Keep

with the White Lock Daily Kouud or
a Skillful Operutor.
"IIo Ix-lons to a curious set rtt New
York me n," hu!1 the jurie- "Tliey nro
creatures of u recent growth, and I cloutit
very much if similar mimtIiiiciis of tlio
ponus man cm lm found anywhere else in
tlio world. -Tliey are called 'masher' In
a general way, but they arc in no senso
like the gorgeous Ixjudon man who had
given t tie word 'masher' its highest mean
inn. The ISritish 'inaslrcr' is acrealuro
of nohle npparcl, Kolenui and dissipated
nir, advanced degrees in the courts of
bankruptcy and general impressiveness.
He wears a great many suits of clothes
during the week, a fleets n burlesque
actress ami drives dashing tnips.
Tlio little circle of mashers in New
York has none of these proclivities. They
are men who have lived on the surface of
the town for many years, whoso names
nro familiar in all of the restaurants arid
clubs, nml who have gained in one way
fr another reputations as tdayers of femi
nine hearts, which stand them In enor
mous value. They are not in society,
sneer at the idea of toil, live in the best
possible manner, dress quietly, and aro
absolutely mum about tho numerous
nilairs in which they pass their lives. I
know a dozen nan in this particular
crowd, but 1 never knew one of them to
break tho rules of tlio peculiar free
masonry which apparently exists among
them to keep quiet about their escapades.
This is the most curious feature of tho
whole tiling. A masher who does not
talk when success has crowned his efforts
wouM bo a rarity anywhero else except
in this extraordinary coterio. They aro a
queer lot, and I can't say that I consider
them a credit to tho city."
It affords a droll study of human
nature to watch the oicration3 of tho
mashers. Most of their faces aro as
familiar to up town people ns the Fifth
Avenue hotel. Their mode of life is sim
ple. Take, for instance, a cold and austcro
man, with a blonde- mustache, a regular
profile, square shoulders and careless car
riage, who has been more or less famous
nlxHit town for fifteen years. Ho has a
near running diagonally across his fore
head, and just alM)ve it is a single lock or
splash" of hair that is as white as
snow, though the rest of his hair is dark.
I have heard it enviably remarked by
other mashers that this gentleman's chief
success is due to the immobility of his
face, the yellowness of his mustache, tho
whiteness of the splash and the dark mass
of hair which throws it into such sharp
relief. He is, in fact, known as 'His
Contrasts" in sorTio quarters. Fifteen
years ago a woman followed him in a cab
down Fifth avenue, slipped out as he
ascended the steps of a rival's
house, ran up tho steps, and pushing a
revolver against his head, blazed away.
Tho bullet, instead of going through the
skull, ran across the forehead. She went
to Kurope in the arms of her amiable
husband, and "Ilis Contrasts" retired
Into painful obscurity for a time. Fivo
years after that he was mixed up in a
row which is still talked about by old
timers. It was a three cornered fight
one woman and two men in the cabin of
A yacht In tho lower bay. When they
dragged 'His Contrasts" out he va3
Xirctty well knocked to pieces. Two ribs
wero broken, and his general physical
welfare very sensibly impaired, but ho
came up smiling, as usual. I have known
him for many years. Ho has but one
object in life.
His manner of living varies little from
day to day. I have had many opportuni
ties for observing him, ns we once had
neighboring apartments in the same hotel,
Riut he used to amuse himself when he
had an occasional half hour of leisure
from his arduous duties by turning the
pictures in my room wrong side foremost,
bribing the chambermaid to sew the
hangings into all sorts of grotesque posi
tions, littering my desk with violent tele
prams and indulging in various other
cheerful and endearing pranks. At 10
o'clock every morning the chambermaid
pounded loudly at his door.
If the tattoo was loud enough the door
would open suddenly, there would be a
wild scream and a pattering of feet as tho
chambermaid scudded out of danger, and
the masher would rush out into the hall
clad in pajamas, bath robes, nightcap, felt
6lippcrs, and carrying a sponge the size of
a bushel basket. He would then wander
In a more or less desultory way toward the
bathroom, stopping to pound on doors that
caught h'.s lightsome fancy, and shying
boots through the transoms of rooms
where men lived who had the distinguished
misfortune to possess his friendship.
About an hour and a half later ho
would wander into the main dining room
of the hotel, cast his experienced eye over
the people assembled there and eat a very
light breakfast. He wore a frock suit all
day long, and his tailor made half a dozen
a year for him. After breakfast he in
variably lighted a big cigar, and, if the
weather was clear, strolled up Fifth
avenue as far ns Central park, and smiled
amiably upon the troops of pretty girls
who were out with their governessses,
nurse's, companions, and chapcrones, tak
ing the morning air. Every girl over 10
years of age apparently knew his history,
for they would stare at him and peep
over their shoulders as he passed, in a
fashion that would startle a society actor.
At half past 1 or 2 o'clock he drifted
flowly into Dclmouico's, scanned the
faces, acknowledged the surly nods of
other mashers with a short inclination of
bis head, picked out his table with undevi
ating skill, and spent the next two or
three hours among the wives and daugh
ters of other men who were down town
pursuing the elusive dollar. His habit is
to eat slowly, and look, with a gentle and
melancholy air, from one pair of pretty
eyes to another.
If the portraits of the handful of men
who are a constant snbject of talk among
the women of New York were published
they would cause a robust and decisive
sort of derision. The majority of them
are anything but resplendent or attract
ive. If there is a professional matinee, a
pictura sale, an art exhibition, a boat
race, a crack horse auctiou, dog show,
horse show or circus going on in the after
noon, the masher is as sure to be there as
the ticket seller. At night ho dines at
the Brunswick, Delmonico's or the Hoff
man house, but never in the cafe. In
this way day after day passes without the
slightest deviation. The mashers all
know each other, they frequent the same
places, they are popnlar with men and
pursued by women, and yet the occasions
are exceedingly rare when they are called
to account. They are adroit and hold
their tongues, and perhaps it is therein
hat their safeguard lies.. New York Sun.
In Chicago Charitable Inittltntlon. I
Here, however, is tho history of a
woman who had something let us hope
It was not "gumption" "cheek" is much
too brusque a term to apply to such a '
subtle quality. She found her way Into a j
charitable Institution of this city the
other day, and, snuggling up to tho ma
tron, addressed her thus: "I hope your in
stitution is not on the dormitory plan,
madam. I think a pensitivo person nat
urally shrinks from such an institution;
don't you? Really, I don't know how
I could bring myself to bleep In the room
with others. I don't mind hardships.
Simple fare and a plain bed will not dis
tre;M rne. Hut every lady must insist on
privacy. I like to lo with my own
thoughts. I should deem also that your
charity was remedial and not ex
pedient. Iu my opinion such nro
much worthier. I havo attended
a good many lectures which had chari
ties for their subject and havo considered
t !:e most popular methods. I should con
jecture that you must meet with a great
ninny disagreeable people in your very dis
iuterested work. It must be 4 great com
pensation if you now and then meet n per
son who is intellectually congenial. I am
sure I shall enjoy my little rest very much
here. Some of my friends thought it best
that I should take a little rest before be
ginning my winter labors. It is between
harvests with me now, as it were. I teach
classical music, either vocal or instru
mental, can do fine hand sewing, or act
as rudimentary governess. Now I should
esteem it a favor if I could have a room
to myself."
Tho matron settled her white cap over
her whito crimps.
"Madame," said she, "I slept last night
with three babies with scrofulous heads,
because no ono else would sleep with
them. Tho rest of tho rooms are in tho
dormitory. Will you permit mo to give
up my bed and the babies to you, or
will you sleep in tho dormitory?"
It is "conjectured" that she went on in
search of other charities not on tho "dor
mitory plan." Chicago News.
Leaving I'ort on u Friday.
'When do you sail, captain?" queried
Deputy Shipping Commissioner Ferris of
the master of a Maine schooner.
"Guess I'll get off on Friday," ho
To tho superstitious land lubber of a re
porter present this appeared like an un
orthodox statement, so ho asked Deputy
Ferris, himself an old sailor for many
years, if modern seamen had entirely ro
covered from their old scara of setting
sail on Friday. Tho reporter broko into

ity of both sailing masters and crews
don't pay tho slightest attention to that
day, so ominous to tradition. When
they're ready with a load they go at tho
most favorable wind, Friday or no Friday,
but we do meet with sailors now
and then who couldn't bo induced
to leavo port on Friday, just as
you still run across thousands of
landsmen who never undertako any af
fair of importance on that day. Most of

Slow Arsenical Poisoning.
I havo read a great deal in the papers
about slow poisoning processes, but only
believed the various statements when
tliey were brought homo to me. My
wife, who had been remarkable for her
rugged health and rosy appearance, began
to fade away. She dwindled to a mero
shadow, and yet sho reiterated statements
of good health. Finally, I insisted on
calhug in a doctor of high standing, after
an emphatic protest from our regular
physician. A long diagnosis decided that
my wife was suffering from arsenical
poisoning drawn into tho system from a
cheap set of falso teeth, which had been
purchased about a week before tho first
symptoms of weakness had been observed.
Arsenic had been used in tho enamel to
secure the glittering whiteness so much
admired by women, and in the process of
mastication small particles had been ab
sorbed in the food and taken into the
stomach, where tho insidious work of
destruction wa3 progressing surely to a
fatal termination. I don't know how
many cases of the kind may exist, but
from the fact that half a dozen medical
men were bafiled in their attempted diag
nosis, I would not be surprised if thou
sands of women were poisoned annually
in this way. Railroad Conductor in
Development of the Trotter.
Senator Daniel, of Virginia, like many
other southern men, is an admirer and
lover of fine horseflesh. He was going
the other day to run over to tho trotting
races at Hartford when he said: "It must
eventually come about that the trotting
races will be popular, because it is in thi3
gait that the horse combines utility with
speedy action. It is as the roadster that
the horse is most available for pleasure
and practical service. In a recent article
written by Judge Hughes, of Richmond,
I caw a theory advanced in reference to
the development in the trotting gait which
I think I have not seen mentioned before.
The thoroughbred animal is to be found
on the great plains and level stretches of
tho country, where his natural gait is
running. Tho trotting gait. Judge Hughes
thinks, comes to the animal as he is trans
ferred to undulating countries, where he
is obliged to adapt his footing to rising
and falling thoroughfares. That would
be the natural development of the run
ning thoroughbreds into the trotters. It
is, of course, to the thoroughbreds that
we must go for the best stock for the de
velopment of trotters as well as runners."

Absinthe In Light Opera.
"In Cincinnati I took to drinking ab

serio-comic. "You don't inhale the

A King on m Swollen Finger.
"Will you please saw this ring off my
It was an old woman who mado this re
quest of a Broad way jeweler, and as the
worker In gold and silver took the
wrinkled, though fat and shapely, hand
in his it trembled violently, and a tear
droped upon tho counter.
"Excuse me," continued the old lady,
"but it is my wedding ring. I have never
had it off since I was married forty-live
years ago. I havo refrained from having
it cut, hoping that my finger might get
thinner and that I could tako it off with
out breaking it."
"And what if I can remove it without
cutting?" inquired tho jeweler.
"Hut can you?" said she, looking up in
a half credulous way. "If you can, do it
by all means."
Then the jeweler took tho swollen
finger and wound it round from tho top
downwards in a length of flat rublier
braid. The elastic cord exerted its force
upon the tissues of tho finger gently and
gradually until the flesh 6cemed to bo
pushed down almost to tho bone. Tho
old woman's hand was then held abovo
her head for a brief interval. Then the
bandage was quickly uncorded and re
wound about the member. This was re
peated three times, and finally it was
found iiixin uncovering tho finger that it
was small enough to admit of tho ring's
being removed with case.
"1 havo never failed but once," said
the jeweler, "and I havo removed many
rings from fingers even more swollen than
yours. Do I charge for it? Oh, yes. I
ask the sanio amount that I would get
if tho ring were left to bo mended after
being cut. One dollar. Thank you!"
and as he turned to his bench and tho old
woman left the store he added: "But after
all sho might have done tho samo thing
herself. It's not tho work, however, I
charge for; it's tho 'know how. " New

Joke on a General.
Apropos of Gen. Faidherbe, an anjusing
anecdote is related of an adventure which
befell him when ho commanded the Army
of the North in the war of 1870. His
charger, a splendid gray Arab, had been
wounded at the battle of Pont Noyelles,
and tho general was obliged to leave it be
hind him at a farm. Some days after, as
Gen. Faidherbe was at lunch, a non
commissioned officer of the Prussian army
came up with a French dragoon and a
horse which Gen. Von Goben had sent him
with a polito message, believing it to bo
his property. The horse was a miserable
animal, and Gen. Faidherbe, amazed at
tho apparition, asked the dragoon for
an explanation. Tho man related
that he had been taken prisoner with three
comrades by a patrol of German cavalry
two o; ys before, and that ho had hit on
the bright idea of representing himself as
the orderly and his horso as the favorite
charger of Gen. Faidherbe. The German
officers had communicated his statement
to Gen. Von Goben, who had courteously
returned tho animal to the French general.
Gen. Faidherbo, however, asked the Ger
man soldier to tako the dragoon and tho
horse back with him, and the man had to
return crestfallen at the failure of his
ruse. Gen. Von Goben, as soon as ho
learnt the truth, directed that diligent
search should bo mado for the Arab, but
it had been so carefully hidden away that
ho never succeeded in restoring it to his
adversary. Chicago Times.
The Average Country Journalist.
Every now and again I see in the city
papers sneers at tho country pnpers and
jokes at the expense of rural editors. It
may be that my experience has been pe
culiarly fortunate, but I have found that
the average country journalist with whom
I have come into contact ha3 more brains,
more straight out,, square toed ability,
more pride and interest in his profession,
and more money, than his city brother.
It is tho graduates from the country
offices who make tho best men in metro
politan journalism.
I reed of tho country editor who takes
his pay in squashes and cord wood, but I
see the country editor who pays mo in
checks on his local bank, checks which
arc always good. I read of tho poverty
stricken rural newspaper man, but in my
experience, and I have met a good many
of them, the rural journalist is apt to own
a share in tho paper he edits, the house ho
lives in, a horse and buggy, while the
metropolitan writer who invents tho
highly humorous paragraphs concerning
his country brother too often owes for the
coat on his back. And finally, a good
country editor is a king pin in his locality.
He is looked up to and respected as a
leader of public opinion, a man who
knows what is going on in the world. I
can't imagino a more enviable position
than that of the owner and editor of a
good country paper. Compared to tho
grind of a city daily, the work is light,
and tho rewards are proportionately
greater. The Journalist.
The Old Clown's Days Aro Over.
Col. W. C. Crum, the advance agent of
Forepaugh's circus, says: "The day of
the clowns is nearly over. Formerly they
were half the show, but now they attract
but little attention. The enlargement of
the shows is tho chief cause. Tho big
shows now have two or three rings, and
the circle of seats is so far off that the
people cannot hear the jokes of the clowns.
In the old days an average clown received
from 100 to $200 a week. Dan Rice,
who was considered the greatest of them
all, was paid $1,000 a week, which was
the highest salary a clown ever received.
He was a bright, ambitious young fellow,
possessed of much originality, and he
reached the top notch of his profession.
Once an educated young Englishman, a
graduate of Oxford university, who pos
sessed excellent comic talents, was
brought over to this country, and he was
pa'.d $500 a week. At the present day
the pay of the clowns ranges from 20 to
50 a week." Courier-Journal.
The "on-payment of Rent.
In the reports of the health of towns
commissioners it is continually pointed out
that sickness is the chief cause of the non
payment of rent. One witness says:
"Three out of five of the losses of rent
that I now have are losses from the sick
ness of the tenants, who are working men.
Rent is the best got from healthy houses."
Another says: "Sickness at all forms an
excuse for the poorer part not paying their
rent, and a reasonable excuse," so that
filth causes sickness, sickness inability to
work, inability to work poverty and non
payment of rent, to say nothing of starva
tion. Science Book Review.

Fathers, Examine the Studies Turntied
by Your &on Mental Ixerclne.
I have been assirt,d by learned pro
fessors that tho collegiato course is merely
un exercise, useful in forming und st rengt !i
ening the mind. Therefore, useless studies
become useful as dumb bells, stiffening
tho mental muscles and imparting tone to
the intelligence. WouM not useful studies
and the acquiring of facts needed in the
daily grind to come be equally healthful
to tho mind?
Tho most our graduates acquire Is
barely a smattering of each subject.
Why? Merely because there is not time
to give each branch of study conscientious
and exhaustive research. It may bo
asked why, then, tho number of studies
is not limited. The answer is simple.
Between tho vanity of tho parents, who
like to say that their sons are deep in this
abstruse subject or that high sounding
science, and tho stubborn conservatism of
the faculty, retaining Eighteenth century
sentiment in thi.i Nineteenth century of
practical life, the course la filled with
tares and there is no room for the wheat.
Of w hat uso aro Latin and Greek to tho
youth who must soon strip in the strug
gle for bread? Tho barest excus e is that
they give an insight into tho derivation of
language. Well? A dictionary will do
as much. Why waste four years in ham
mering verbs and nouns, declensions and
conjugations into a boy who is destined
afterward to sell coifeo or soap? Of what
valuable use is French? It will tako sev
eral years to learn, und tho acquirement
is purely ornamental, and in most cases
not worth a dollar to the future man.
Fathers, examine the studies pursued
by your sons. You will find that you are
spending your money and wasting their
most precious time storing up glittering
tinsel to the exclusion of what can benefit
them in the sterner days to come. Cast
them adrift upon tho sea of life without a
thorough education in some practical sub
ject of value to the world, and which in a
needy hour they may coin into bread, and
you are casting them adrift in ships of
lead without a life preserver or a spar
aboard. A sunken rock or a storm and
they are lost.
If they need mental exercise let them
juggle with practical subjects mechan
ics, bookkeeping, drawing, practical chem
istry, arithmetic, the English languago
and physics. Let them learn how to keep
accounts, how to handle tools, how to
build and work an engine, how to detect
adulterations in staples of commerce, how
to understand the machinery of the great
practical world and not learn the vaga
ries of tho land of dreams.
If you havo learned the bent of your
son's mind, confine him strictly to studies
pertaining to his calling and cast all
others away.
Our boys are not fools. They know tho
uselessness of half the labors imposed
upon them, and, being Americans, resent
the encroaching upon their liberty.
Rather than Latin or Greek, they take up
the fantasticoes of the poker deck, they
twankle a banjo, and aro erudite only in
the latest laws appertaining to trousers
or collar. We neglect to give them
weapons to fight tho battle, and they be
come skulkers in the rear. We turn
them loose upon the world with no means
for employment; they reply by becoming
idle and profligate, prematurely wasted,
the soul of Saturn in the body of Adonis,
crowded from the race for fortune and
fame by striplings of humbler life, whoso
education ran in narrow lines, but was
sturdy and sharp as an ax to hew their
path. Henry Guy Carleton in New York
Looking Through the Telescope.
In regard to plauota, we must remember
that a telescope does not give us a bird's
eye view. We see the nearest planet only
as an orb in which all such details as en
our earth belong to continents are abso
lutely lost. Mars, tho planet most fa
vorably seen, presents continents, oceans,
ice patches and such cloud masses a3 ex
tend far enough to cover those larger fea
tures from time to time. But we cannot
hope to see rivers or mountain ranges on
the ruddy planet.
I know not, Indeed, what to say about
certain markings which Sig. Schiaparelli,
of Milan, and recently M. Perrotin, of
Nice, think they have seen. They are
straight, broad bands running across the
continents, and lately Sciaparelli has seen
them doubled.
' If they are canals they are enormously
broad, certainly twenty times wider than
the Mississippi at St. Louis. They look
too regular and straight (as Schiaparelli
pictures them) to be natural formations;
and if he is right about their being double
they must be artificial. The great Lick
telescope may tell us something about
theso strange features; I must confess I
strongly expect that the telescope will tell
us that the parallel canals, if not tho
whole set, are optical illusions. It is, at
any rate, worth remarking that they have
only as yet been seen with telescopes of
moderate power and when the planet is
unfavorably placed for observation.

Whnt Key West Looks Like.
The key has about as much shape as a
camel, and in a general way Mes east and
west and contains about six Bquare miles.
It is as flat as a shingle, the highest point
being about fourteen feet above the mean
sea level. To the casual visitors it looks
as though the sea, particularly in a storm,
would submerge this insignificant rise,
but it Is a matter of record that it never
has done it. The city proper covers the
western end of the key, and it was, pre
vious to the great fire of March 30, 188(5,
very densely settled, and about as un
American looking as could well be
imagined, bearing a strong resemblance
to a West India town. The houses are of
wood and quite plainly built. There are,
I think, only four or five brick buildings,
and certainly not more than six.
The streets are of very good width,
tolerably straight and passably clean.
The roadway is coral rock. There is no
soil to speak of; what passes for soil la
triturated corah very rich in phosphates
and making an excellent fertilizer, but by
itself deficient in fat. To garden one
must use a pick rather than a hoe. Very
few vegetables are grown here and vege
tation is confined mainly to cocoanut
trees. Here and there can be seen a pine
or an Alexander or a star of India or a
royal poncana; a few mulberry and prickly
ash trees and popenack bushes. Flowers
and flowering shrubs grow in abundance.

Safeguards Against Cholera.
Max Von Pettenkolfer, a German med
ical authority, considers that cholera Is
not contagious in the sense of being com
municable directly from person to person,
but that it belongs to the malarial group
of epidemics, the germs of which find
their way from the soil into the air, and
thence through the lungs into the system. J
He regards geod drainage and pure water i
as the most efficient safeguards against an !
