Ura Who Thrive on Small
ZU aud ulck galea,
jeae section of this city has from
memorial been curiously infested by
-ddly original and enterprising crowd
"VU traders, speculator and other nd
Vt. STurera with whom slight profits and quick
sales are a maxim. It is not only the shoo
string peddlers and such like cheap jacks
who thrive by going fromrofliee' to oflice, but
men of almost every craft ' While I was in
one office the other day a peripatetic phrenolo
gist came in and wanted to feel our bumps.
In another I found a corn doctor planing
down the tenant's feet. At another still, a
vagrant sleight-of-hand performer did some
tricks and passed around the hat, and barbers,
furniture menders, glaziers, carpenters and
painters travel about in search of jobs and
probably find them.
There is scarcely anything a man cannot
buy down town in the course of a week, with
out leaving his oflice. Tailors' agents will
measure him for clothes, to bo made here or
iu London. Venders will supply him with
hats and boots and underclothing; he can
buy cigars and song birds, and beer and dogs,

mers who go about scaring up trade for shirt
manufacturers, and others who ofTer building
lots, and houses, and furniture for sale on
the installment plan, while as for tho Una
arts and literature they have their agents
everywhere, ready to deal for cash or credit,
as occasion may demand.
The customers of these venturesome trades
men are not drawn from the highest rank3
of trade. It is as impossible for a peddler to
get at a givat financier, or lawyer, or mer
chant as it would bo for him to enter the
kingdom of heaven by climbing a telegraph
polo. But thero are thousands of men who
are engaged in minor businesses, running
offices of their own and easily accessible to
the public as It passes, and upon these tho
peddlers prey, w it goes a great way toward
making traJe. The vender who can talk
well and crack a joke with facility will pros
per even in the worst of times. There is ono
young fellow who sells writing pads alone
among the artists and other independent oc
cupants of downtown offices, who might own
quite a guug bank account by this time if ho
saved the money he picks up. But, liko
most of his kind, thare is a shiftless streak in
him, and he does not try over hard to sell his
wares when he does not actually need money.
This seems to bo tho weakness of all of these
vagabond industrials. Sufficient for the day
is tho good thereof, and a niplo for the man
is that fortune which leeps his wants of tho
hour supplied. Thero do not seem to bo as
many women among these random mer
chants as there once were. Even the female

be. But the number of men so busied con

pearances, to grow in prosperity .iux lima,

Exercise for the Bilious.
As a simple illustration take the man of
sedentary occupation prone to what is called,
biliousness. Ho is assured that ha -ieds ex
ercise, and so eutars upon tho practice of
walking four or five miles, or even longer
distances, daily. He improves, it cannot but
bo a benefit to him. Still, were he to devote
a part of the time given to walking to a moie
varied form of exercise, ho would find it Ifcia
of a task and, the gain etiil greater. To got
tho greatest good out of a walk one must
fling his arms around and so carry himself as
to bring every muscle of the body into play.
But few people would care to indulge in s1;
an exhibition on a public strpet, una m when
the renrsl;tj; ol iuem walk they do so almost
entirely 'with their legs, in other words, only
the lower half of the body is much exercised..

When a man rides hornebic!;, tiib liver' is

bilious patients derive so much benefit from
that peculiar form of exercise. If a man
who walks four or five miles a day could,
