The Dinner-Hour.
In the fourteenth century the kirer
of France dined at 8 a.m. , and re
tired to rest at 8 p. m. In the time
of Philip the Good an old verse said ,
"Rise at 5. dine at 9 , sup at 5 , go to
{ & bed at 9 , and thou shalt live to be
iE ninety-and-nine. " In the reigns of
% . Henry IV. and Louis XIV. the din-
fb ner-hour was 11 a. m. Louis XV.
% jjf changed the dinner-hour to 2o'clock.
9 Two o'clock remained the usual din-
. \ ner-hour in France up to the time of
e rev ° lution , after which 6 o'clock
vkA Vi
aJO 't became the fashionable time. In
® tf } England the upper class breakfasted
w& ' at 7 in the reign of Henry VIII. , and
? ' dined at 10 a. m. In Elizabeth's
| r reign the dinner-hour was 11 a. m. ,
$ • and supper was served about 5
} t o'clock. In Germany the fashionable
Wg hour for dinner up to the time of the

"Certainly. How do you wish me to

"Oh , " Interposed Jim , "if you have
the stuff , you're welcome. We'll fix
you out in no time. What do you
want ? "
"I'll have to leave that to you. I
have never been a tramp before. "
"See here , my Christian friend , for
the good of your health let me tell you
not to say 'tramp' to one of our fra
ternity. A tramp is a man who never
works and who walks from town to
town. We are hoboes. We beat our
way on trains passengers when we
can , freight when we can't do better.
A hobo works when he can , but when
out of work uses his wits to get him
elsewhere. See ? "
"Yes , but I never heard the distinc
tion made before. Are we going to
beat the railroad , and how are we go
ing to do it ? "
"You are green ! There's a hundred
schemes for working them. If every
thing fails steal the ride. "
Van went to the place of appoint
ment , where he found his two strange
companions waiting for him.
"Everything lovely , " was Jim's
greeting. "A train leaves about an
hour after dark. Say , let's eat. I'll hit
the cottage. You idiots can buy sup
pers , but I'll save my cash. "
Five minutes later he returned with
a tirade of abuse against inhospitable
people and frequent allusions to the
Van at last said :
"What do you mean ? Did the wom
an hit you with a hatchet ? "
"No , you gump ! That's short for
stating that her royal highness desired
the extreme pleasure of my society at
the woodpile while I got up an appe
tite for my supper. "
Scon a freight train slowly passed.
"Here's an empty ! " shouted Origi
nal Jim , as he started on the run , the
others closely following.
Van was so excited that he could
not vault in after the others , but they
dragged him in and closed the door.
"Now you boys be quiet until she
gets under headway , " Jim ordered , as
he lighted a match and proceeded to
sweep the floor with a bunch of weeds
be had previously gathered.
"Never travel without matches. Raymond
mend , and never forget to gather a
broom , so you can brush up a place to
sleep , " quietly remarked Wilkins ,
whom Jim dubbed "The Silent"
Soon Wilkins and Jim were sound
asleep , while Van sat , Indian fashion ,
against the car , wondering whether it
was not about to jolt off the track , and
ill lii0r
how they could sleep amid such a
Slowly the hours , which seemed in
terminable to Van , passed. At the
third stop the door was suddenly
jerked open , a lantern flashed , and a
brakeman jumped in. Holding the
lantern aloft he looked down , count
ing :
"One , two , three. Say , where are you
fellows going ? "
Wilkins was now awake , but neith
er he nor Van responded.
"A car of mutes , I guess , " muttered
the brakeman , as he proceeded to kick
Original Jim into wakefulness. "Here ,
you fellow , get up out of this ! "Where
in thunder did you get in ? The 'con'
just came over the train and heard you
snoring. This train is moving agaiu.
Get a hustle on you , for the con told
me to see that you got off , " he added ,
as mounting the ladder and swinging
his lantern , he started on a run toward
the engine.
Jim caught up a plank , and hurried
ly calling to his comrades to follow ,
again jumped into the car. They did
so , but Wilkins remarked :
"The brakeman told us to get off. "
"Yes , but he meant to get in again
when he said 'Rememher , I saw you get
off. ' Now I'll wedge this door shut ,
and we'll have peace till morning , you
bet ! "
Morning found them side-tracked in
tSie Quaker City. Jim took his party
to the outskirts of the town , where
stood a deserted house in which a num
ber of men were evidently having a
Jollification. Drawing near , they saw
a gentlemanly six-footer advancing to
ward them. He had on one red shoe
and one black one , both lefts. The

sleeves of his coat did not come much
below his elbows , and the tails only
reached his waist-band.
"The Flying Sword , " exclaimed Jim ,
as the man unbuttoned his coat , put
one hand into the upper part of the
left sleeve and drew out a tin trowel ,
over three feet long , remarking :
"I still carry the tomahawk. "
"Where did he have that trowel ? "
Van managed to whisper to Jim.
"Oh , the handle was up his sleeve ,
and the tip in his pecket It is not
a trowel , you know , only a guy. Come
in and meet the boys. This well-
dressed chap is 'Diamond Kit/ that
short one is Billy the Bat ; yonder come
Duty and Missouri Kid. Oh , we're all
here for reunion but it's the first
we've had north of Lexington. That's
our pet place.
After a general handshaking the
party broke up into groups , Wilkins
and Kit reclining on the floor smoking
As he could not then talk' with Wil
kins Van proceeded to satisfy his curi
osity by questioning the one known as
"Missouri Kid. "
"The Flying Sword ? Oh , he got the
name by carrying that tin trowek He
will go and ask for work , telling the
boss that he lays brick , not by the hun
dred a day but by the acre. 'If you
doubt me look at my trowel. ' The
ridiculousness of his ways usually gets
him a job , too. He is a very fair brick
layer , but of course not so good as
Diamond Kit , who is considered the
best in the United States. "
"How about our hobo stew ? " now
chimed in Wilkins' voice.
"How much can we raise ? " was
Kit's practical supplementary remark.
The sum of two dollars was collect
ed , with which Kit and Wilkins de
parted to do the marketing.
Soon after they returned with vari
ous bundles , a five-gallon tin sausage
can and an empty tobacco can for
each person present.
Van was interested , and pressed for
ward to see what was going on.
While Kit made the stew he sent
some of the boys out for empty cans.
He ordered the solder removed from
them , and that they be flattened out
and washed.
Each man had a tomato can , and a
small portion of ground coffee with
which he made his own drink , army
style , and this was drunk with con
densed milk. Slices of steak were fried
on the pieces of tin which they had flat
tened , and soon the first course was
eaten , amid much jesting and laugh
ter , for all hoboes are apt to be jovial
when certain of one full meal in a day.
After the coffee was drunk the cans
were filled up with the rich , savory
As dusk came on the men reclined
about the floor , telling their experi
ences. Van determined to try to in
fluence Wilkins into telling the truth ,
as he was interested in the man , who
seemed above his W.ows , so sat by his
side and watched him stealthily while
Jim told of his life , how he had start
ed cut from necessity , and so fallen in
love with the wild freedom that he
could cot bear to give it up.
Scarcely had he ceased when all were
surprised to hear "Wilkins the Silent"
saying :
"I was born and raised in New York
city. While yet a young man I learned
locomotive engineering , and for years
had a freight. That paid me about
one hundred and forty dollars a month ,
and I saved my money. When I was
twenty-eight I married. My wife ha.l
been one of a large family and I meant
her never to be lonesome nor unhappy.
I bought a nice house and furnished it
cosily , deeding it to her. That used
up all I had saved ; but I had a good
run , was considered one of the best
men on the road , and everything went
smoothly for a year. I was home every
second night and my wife was content
"One day I had a sudden order to
trade engines when I met a certain
train , as that engineer's wife was sick
and he wished tc return home. I never
tired of my wife and loved to be with
her , so was glad to go to her sooner
than I had expected. "
Here he paused , and here all looked
at him in surprise , particularly Jim ,
who muttered :
"By God , he is telling the truth
about his past , and I have not board
him mention it for years ! Thought he
had forgotten it. "
To this Kit responded :
"If there is anything you don't want
him to tell , go over to him. That man
Raymond has him sort of mesmerized.
I believe. "
Jim half started from his seat , but
Missouri Kid drew him back as Wilkins
continued :
"It was nearly ten o'clock when I
reached home. What a sound of
drunken revelry met my ears ! Could
it be there was no mistake ? Was that
house mine ?
"I asked a passer-by who lived
" 'The blindest fool in the world/
was his reply. 'He runs an engine on
the New York Central , and his wife
raises the roof when he is away. '
"One minute later I entered. The
crowd , composed of my wife's brothers ,
sisters and cousins , quickly dispersed.
I was too much hurt to remonstrate
with her ; but she , being guilty , could
not keep quiet.
" 'You had no business marrying me
when you could not support me the
way I want to live/ she began. 'I have
mortgaged the house and the furniture ,
and I've not paid a bill in two months.
You may as well know it all now , and
not have to find it out later. I've
spent the money for suppers and good
times. I'm tired of this life ! I'm go
ing on the stage. '
"That is why I'm a hobo. "

Judge Jim Griggs was reminded of
a story by the passing of an electric
car , says the Atlanta Constitution , and
began :
"One of the funniest things that ever
happened during my connection with
the Georgia judiciary was when I was
first elected solicitor. The demands of
my position frequently put me in the
attitude of prosecuting a friend. It
was hard , but I did it An ex-sheriff of
a county in my circuit a fellow that I
had known and liked for a long while
was prosecuted for making away with
some money. It was an ugly charge.
The evidence was conclusive against
him. When I went down to court he
came staggering into my room about
two-thirds drunk. 'Jimhe said , 'these
Infernal scoundrels are trying to pro
secute me perfect outrage. I told 'em
just wait till I saw Jim Griggs , an'
we'd fix it I told 'em we'd let 'em
know who to prosecute. And we will.
Won't we , Jim ? '
"I looked at him very gravely , and
said : 'Tom , I've got a dead case against
you. I'm going to prosecute you , con
vict you and send you to the peniten
tiary. You are guilty. You got the
money , and I've got the evidence to
prove it. '
"He looked at me in perfect amaze
ment. He was dumbfounded. He said
I didn't mean it. I told him I did.
He straightened himself up and march
ed out without a word. His case was
the first one called after dinner. The
judge asked him if he had any counsel.
He said no and didn't want any. He
spoke in a half-drunken fashion. 'But/
said the judge , 'you are charged here
with a serious offense , and if you have
no money to employ a lawyer I'll ap
point one for you. ' The defendant
didn't like it He arose with difficulty.
He steadied himself against a table
and , speaking in a maudlin fashion ,
said :
" 'Yer honor.I said I don't want no

what I said. I don't want hie take

T-ieutenant Commander in the Navj
Makes an Anonymous Confession.
From the Detroit Free Press : "The
most-to-be-regretted act of my life , "
says a lieutenant commander of the
navy , "was a letter I wrote to my
mother when about 17 yeasr of age. She
always addressed her letters to me as
'my dear boy. ' I felt at that time I
was a man , or very near it , and wrote
saying that her constant .addressing
me as a 'boy' made me feel dis
"I received in reply a letter full of
reproaches and tears. Among other
things she said : 'You might grow to
be as big as Goliath , as strong as Sam
son , and as wise as Solomon ; you
might become ruler of a nation or em
peror of many nations , and the world
might revere you and fear you ; but to
your devoted mother you would always
appear , In memory , in your innocent , i
unpretentious , un-self-eonceited
, un-
pampered babyhood. In those days
when I washed and dressed and kissed
and worshiped j'ou , you were my idol.
Nowadays you are becoming part of a
gross world by contact with it , and I
can not bow down to you and worship
you ; but if there is manhood and ma
ternal love transmitted to you , you will
understand that the highest compli
ment that mother-love can pay you is
to call you 'my dear boy. ' "
Curious French Legend.
It is asserted by the Industriellei
Echo that thousands of 57-franc
pieces are split into two halves by
their French owners every year , in
the hope of "discovering" an immense
hidden treasure. This treasure , ac
cording to the legend firmly believed
in France , is an order to pay the hold-
ei 100,000 francs in silver 5-franc coins.
When Napoleon Bonaparte first set the
5-franc piece in circulation the con
servative mind of the French revolted
against the numismatic revolution ,
notwithstanding its zeal for political
revolution , and it was very difficult to
induce a Frenchman to receive or
proffer the new coin. Hence , accord
ing to the story , Napoleon gave it to
be understood that he had ordered a
check for 100,000 francs , written upon
asbestos paper , to be concealed in one
of the new silver pieces. From that
day to this nobody has objected to the
5-franc piece.
The Canning Industry.
A few years since there was not a
canning factory west of the Alleghaftr
mountains , but now they dot the prai
ries and plantations of the Mississip
pi basin and are increasing year by
year at a rapid rate. There has been a
steady increase in the demand for
canned goods. Their consumption was
enormously increased by their low
cost so low , indeed , at present that
there is no profit in the industry ,
which shares the depression common
to business in general in recent years.
In prosperous times the trade is a
vast and profitable one and is only
in the first steps of its development.
