-HAIL, FELLOW, HAIL!
Sotaewbere, beyond the Great Unknown,
Among the shades of No Stan's land.
The spirit of a friend has flown.
Obedient to King Death's command,
In life, his friends were wont to say
At meeting him: "Bail, fellow, ban."
Who knows but what, this Tery day.
They greet him thus beyond the veil!
Good cheer, bright words and pleasant ways.
Were his, whichever way be turned;
The torch of welcome, at full blaze'
Before his doorway always burned.
A hopeful heart, that cherished schemes
Which promised -crcll but lived to fail
Doubt not, beyond our world of dreams.
They greet him still: "Hail, fellow, haiir
Ban, fellow, hail! For hearts made glad
By thee throughout thy mortal life.
Thy heart shall nevermore be sad.
And thou shalt know no more of strife."
Such greeting, be, ere this hath known
Somewhere, beyond Death's shadowy pale.
Ere long, the Toice we know his own
Will cry to us: "Hail, fallow, haill

THE "FIRST FOLIO."
Many, have attributed my good fortune
simply to lack, but when I make known
all the facts of the case I think that re
flective readers will come to the conclu
. sion that my prosperity was not deter
mined by chance alone.
My undo was rich. My cousins, though
neither saints nor perhaps even models of
propriety, were none of them bad fellows.
One of -them was in the foreign office, an
other' was making his way slowly at the
bar, and a third was, like myself, a soldier.
The others possessed small private means,
sufficient to enable them to live decently,
and one of them at least increased his in
come considerably by whist at his club
and by pigeon shooting. I had gone to an
army crammer's while only a lad, and
after leaving Sandhurst went with my
regiment to India, so that my -uncle had
seen very little of me, which ultimately
proved a fortunate circumstance. The
first communication which I had with my
uncle was made by mo with considerable
diffidence, and was not of a kind to rec
ommend me to him. I had lost two
chargers, and not possessing the means
to replace them, I wrote to my uncle
explaining the matter, and asking for
a loan. In reply he sent me a check for
the sum required. I was very grateful,
and economizing till I had saved the
money lent me I repaid It to him. Soon
afterwards I returned with my regiment
to England, and on my arrival in London
I had an invitation from my undo asking
mo to dine with him. I found him very
factituru and apparently unsociable.
During dinner I noticed that ho fre-.
quontly looked at mc furtively, as though
ho found in my appearance some cause tor
surprise. When wo reached the dessert,
however, the interest that ho had been
manifesting in me was explained, for'he
said, almost as if ho were soliloquizing:
"You were the last of my nephews to
borrow of mc, and you are the first who
has ever repaid a loan."
After delivering this verdict, which ap
peared to give his mind relief, my uncle
becamo quite talkative, and amused me
very much by relating the various
causes which had led to his disin
heriting his different heirs. While
he spoke, I could tell by his indig
nant snorts, and by the fire in his eyes,
that ho must bo a terribly irascible old
fellow. The barrister, who was a convey
ancer and equity draughtsman, had pro
posed that he should examine all tho title
deeds of tho real property, which ho had
learnt he was some dav to inherit, and,
when ho had finished his investigation,
had hinted that a fee of a hundred guineas
would be acceptable. This sum had been
handed to him. and his nawo forthwith
(struck out of tho wiJl. Tho way in which
my uncle told this story wa3 very- comi
cal. My cousin who was the crack shot
had bored him, it seemed, one night by
telling of tho forthcoming pigeon shooting
matches in which ho was engaged, and
had -afterwards won from him twenty
livo pounds at whist. What a fool
the fellow must have been! Still
more foolish, if possible, had been
that cousin who. on seeing my
uncle's splendid collection of rare books
and first editions, had said that if
they were his he would soon 'turn them
iuto cash. Finally, he told me that his
niece was now his heiress, and I could see
that he was not altogether satisfied with
this arrangement. After dinner my undo
offered to bhow me his library, and I will
ingly assented. Apart from my desire to
gratify my host 1 had a genuine interest
in rare books, and was eager to see his
valuable collection, of which I had often
heard, but had been too young to appre
ciate when, as a boy, I had last been in
his house. . My admiration on beholding
his treasures was not feigned, and my
undo was sltarp enough to understand
that. We spent the remainder of the
evening in the library, and so v, ell did we
get on together that before I left the
house my uncle proposed that I should
resign my commission and become his
secretary. I did not misunderstand the
full significance of this proposal; I knew
that I was not asked to give up my pro
fession without a better equivalent than
a private secretaryship beinjr in store for
me. I was the only one of his nephews
whom ho had never appointed his heir.
On the other hand, what guarantee had I
that I should not meet the same fate as
my cousins, or rather a worse, seeing that
I might be cast adrift on the world with
out money or tho means cf earning a live
lihood? Observing my hesitation, my
"Think over the matter till to-morrow,
and give me your answer then."
This I agreed to do, and then I bad
him good night. I found myself face to
face with a very puzzling dilemma. But
the stake I might win was a big one, so I de
cided to run the risk. The result was that
week later I was installed in my unde's
' house .as his secretary, and was also in
possession of the comforting knowledge
that- his will had been altered in my
favor. I did feel many qualms, both of
heart and conscience, on account of my
pretty cousin, whom I had supplanted, but
it" was not forme to interfere with my
unde's right to bequeath his property as
My uncle was very well read, and was
- a man of considerable refinement and cul
ture. He. was a "Shakesperean scholar of
great learning, and his collection of books
pertaining to the greatest Elizabethan
dramas was most extensive. As his opin
ion on the authorship of these plays ought
to carry weight I shall here state'it.
lie thought that neither to Shakespeare
nor to Lord Bacon was due the whole
credit of those sublime creations, but that
by each of them the meed of honor had
been merited, as they had worked in col
laboration. Lord Bacon, he said, had
undoubtedly supplied both tho poetry
and philosophy, but that the stagecraft
was manifestly that of an actor, and be
longed to Shakespeare. The puns and
other verbal conceits, he. affirmed, had
cither been inserted by Shakespeare or
were the gagging interpolations or the
actors who took part in the plays, because
Lord Bacon was as incapable of these
puerilities as'Shakespeare was of the vast
learning and deep philosophy. Ho hdd
other singular opinions, and asserted that
if a- lord chancellor of our own day took
it into his head to write, say melodramas
for the Adelphi, he would undoubtedly
collaborate with one of our leading play
wrights, Mr. Sims or Mr. Grundy or Mr.
Jones, and would permit him to take all
the renown and part of the remnneraticu,
carefully concealing his own name. This
is no digression, but is given to show how
deeply my unde was interested in Shake
The most valuable, or at least the most
highly prized, book in his collection was
a "Fast Folio," for which, if I remember
rightly, he had given 750, though he
would not have parted with it for
ten times that sum. This rare book was
kept not merely as a curiosity by its
owner, as he was able to put it to a crit
'icaluse; its state of preservation was so
perfect as to render It a unique copy. I
was considerably surprised one day when
ke told me that he had promised to lend
it for a short time to a distinguished
ssmserof parliament, whom he had al
asoat won over to his own views regard
iag.the authorship of the plays. I was
eoattLisskned to convey the precious book
te its destination, and my uncle

riage the last thing 'he said to me was
.that, as the distance which I should have
to go was not great, he would prefer that
I should walk. instead of taking a cab,
being", I suppose, of the opinion that the
hook would run a greater risk of feeing
injured or lost if I used a conveyance. I
promised, therefore, to carry it. An hour,
later, when I left the house with the val
uable book in my hand, I found mysdf in
the midst of the densest London fog I had
ever experienced. Not only was it suffo
cating and bhndingr but as it drifted
along and met my face the heavy vapor
seemed almost tangible. To- add to the
discomfort caused by the fog the night
was bitterly, cold and the pavement was
slippery." I had not gono many steps
when I began to. deliberate whether I
ought not to return, but, as I knew that
my unde's friend was staying at. home
this evening in order to receive the book,
I thought i better that he should not be
disappointed. I had proceeded on my
way not more than a few hundred ' yards
when, on turning a corner, I ran
against some one who was coming,
in the opposite direction. The colli
sion was a sharp -one, and we bath
slipped and fell. With mutual apologies
we scrambled to our feet, and the stranger
politely lifted tho copy of "Shakespeare"
which had fallen from my hand and re
turned it to me. We were standing right
under a lamp, and I could see, though in
distinctly, the "manner of man he was
with whom I had come in contact; he was
middle aired, short, snare and dressed
.shabby genteelly in black, apparently a
second rato solicitor a or barrister s cieru,
or perhaps a copyist for a law stationer.
After expressing a hope that I was not
hurt -he moved away, and I remained
standing, somewhat dazed by my tumble.
As I had still about half a mile to go I
resolved to run the risk of no more acci
dents, so I turned and began to retrace'
my steps. In' a few minutes I was again
within my uncle's house. I went at once
to the library in order to restore the
"First Folio" to its place
How warm and comfortable the room
seemed after the miserable 'weather to
which I had just been exposed. The fire was
blazing brightly, and I warmed my cold
hands. As soon as a lamp was brought
in I approached a table, where I had laid
the "Shakespeare." as I was anxious to
know if it had received any slight damage'
through falling. I lifted: the book, and
suddenly felt faint, while the room
seemed to spin round me. The book I
hdd in my hand was not the "First
Folio," but a law book of the same size
and appearance ! Ere I opened it I saw
by the printing on the back of the binding
that it was "Bobbins on Contracts!"
Tho truth flashed upon me instantaneous
ly. That miserable lawyer's derk in the
darkness and fog had inadvertantly hand--ed
me this wretched book he was carrying
and liad taken away tho " Shakespeare "
in its stead. I was convinced that never
again would I behold the "First Folio."
It is true that my. unde's name and
address were written on a 'slip of paper
which was gummed to the cover, but
from the momentary glimpse I had of this
man I felt sure he would not return it.
The temptation by which he found hint
self assailed would be too great for him
to resist, when he learnt that he had in
his possession a book which, if sold, would
procure him a comfortable annuity for
the remainder of his life. He would know
that the book must be the property of
some wealthy collector, who, he would
imagine, could afford to purchase an
other. Though his conduct would be
morally as culpable as theft, I knew that
many a man, who was incapable of delib
erately stealing, would be unable to with
stand the temptation of appropriating
that which came into his possession un
wittingly, and, in a manner, might seem
to have been thrust upon him, especially if
he were in needy circumstances, as this
man whom I had encountered in the fog
undoubtedly was. There would be no use
in advertising the loss, as my unde's
namo would bo seen, and the book restor
ed if it had fallen into the hands of an
honest person. I had a strong conviction ,
however, that the book would never be
brought (back. I did not doubt for a mo
ment the consequences which my care
lessness would entail upon myself. Not
only .would I lose my fortune, but I would
bo banished from my uncle s house, and
be thrown upon the world without means
aud without the ability to earn my living.
I knew that he had disinherited my
cousins for reasons which would seem
only trivial to him when compared to the
enormity of my offense. This would be
more intelligible to the reader if I could
explain the inordinate value which he
placed upon the book, and the veneration
in which he held it, or could describe his
irascible, crotchety temperament, or the
contempt in which he hdd such re
missness at that of which I had
been guilty. I knew it would be use
less to urge that, as he had made me
resign my profession, he ought in justice
to give mo an allowance, as he would
think I was only being justly punished in
being consigned to penury.
When he returned that night I 'was
thankful that he made no reference to the
book. I did not dare to look him in the
face. I am aware that, if I had acted
rightly, I should have made a confession
to him of my faults, and that my behav
ior will be pronounced by some to have
b n cowardly. But "cowardice" is a
very ugly word to use in reference to one
who had just ceased to be a soldier; and I
wish it, therefore, to be known that it
wa&in action that I lost the two chargers
of which I have made mention, and
that on that occasion my name ap
peared in .the dispatches. Bnt I
would rather have faced a battery,
and had ten chargers shot under me, with
the loss of a limb to boot, than I would
have told my unde that in the fog I had
exchanged his "First Folio" for "Bobbins
on Contracts." Discovery could not leng
be delayed, as the book was only to have
been lent for three days. I was in con
stant dread lest my uncle should receive
some communication from his friend, and
thus learn that the "Shakespeare" had
never reached him.
It was the fourth day after my mishap
that my uncle said to me in a highly dis
"I can't understand what A means
by keeping my 'First Folio so long. 1
told him distinctly that I could not spare
it for more than three days. I trust he
has taken good care of it; but I heartily
wish now that I had never lent it at alL

hours, and shall expect to' see it when I
As soon as my oncle left the house I
resolved that, ere he returned, I should
have taken my departure for good. I
knew it was useless to expect his forgive
ness, and, frankly, I had not the courage
to face his anger. So I determined to
write and informing him of his loss, and
request a small sum sufficient to allow me
to emigrate. Iwas arranging my plans,
when a servant came to tell me that a
man had called respecting a book which
be wished my uncle to see. My undo
was well known as a collector, and,
thinking this might be a messenger from
some dealer, I said that I would see the
man. On entering the room where he
was I saw a tall, fair young man of about
twenty-seven. His clothes were some
what worn, and he had a dejected expres
sion. He held in his hand a brown paper
"I have a book here," he said, "which
I should like Mr. Morgan to see; as he has
been mentioned to me as a party who
might be willing to buy it."
Having said this he took from the brown
paper my uncle's "first Folio" and placed
it in my trembling hands.
Thank heaven!" I exclaimed in an ex
cited tone, while the young man looked at
me in surprise.
"This is Mr. Morgan's own copy," I
continued; "it was lost three days ago,
and I was afraid had been stolen. When
you spoke of selling it, you wished, of
course, to see whether I would identify it.
I do; and so will Mr. Morgan. But you

nor was I content till I had locked it in
the cabinet where it was usually kept. I
then went to get some money and re
turned to give it to the man. To my as
tonishment I found that be was gone, and
a servant told me that he had left the
house very hurriedly. He certainly did not
appear to be an individual who would be
above accenting a reward. That.aow-
ever, "was a tnvm mattery and: gave me
little concern in tho midst of ay intense
-As soon as my uncle came back I put
the "First "Folio" into his hands. The
time had not yet come when I .should
judge it proper that he should learn the
truth. I noticed that my uncle was ex
amining the book very carefully, fearful,
I supposed, lest it had received any in
jury. At last he looked at me with a
cunning expression, and said in a low
"Do you know this isn't my copy?'.'
"Not yours?" I exclaimed in surprise
"No," replied my uncle, "it is not the
one I bought, and is a still more perfect
copy. The title page in my 'Shakespeare'
was torn'in one corner; in this it is abso
lutely without a flaw. The first pages of
Hamlet' were 'foxed' in my copy, but
here tbey are as dean as when they' were
printed. I know what has .happened,"
continued my unde with anotherennning
glance towards me. "A and his
friends have been comparing my 'Shake
speare with some others, and my name
has become detached, so they have been
mixed. The man who has got mine is
probably none the wiser, and will be just
as well satisfied with it as with this, and
I, of course, won't complain."
Now, although the reader may .have
formed a contrary opinion, my uncle when
in tho city was famed for his uprightness
and for the probity of all his dealings. It
was only as a collector, and when dealing
in scarce books, that. he sometimes dis
played a laxity of honor which distressed
me. What has occurred was dear to mo,

had been stolen from my unde, and under
the belief, that I had gone for a policeman,

I am sorry to relate that my" unde's in
terest in this fresh copy of the "First
Folio," coupled with his devotion to the
Shakespearean question, proved injurious
to his health, and several weeks later -he
was seized with a stroke of apoplexy,
which proved fatal. I inherited all his
property, including his valuable collection
of rare books. From tho time when I first
conjectured the truth regarding the stolen
book I resolved that ultimately it would
be restored to its owner. I am preserving .
it carefully;- and I take this -opportunity
of stating that it will be delivered to" any
one who identifies it and is able- to prove
his claim; "or, if he prefers it, I shall have

that I was distressed .by the thought of
having supplanted my fair cousin in my
unde's will; -but she has at last consented

A SURPRISED FENCER.
Sbe Lesson Taagfct a'Teaag America
A young bank -clerk in Albany Is wiser
than he was .a year ago. In the bank
where he was a derk a new moo' was
given a somewhat inferior position. The
newcomer was a small, slight framed
Frenchman, 'whose English was decidedly
lame, but who so seldom spoke that It
made little difference. The senior clerk
had a decided penchant for fencing, and
compared with most fellows of his age
and position was unquestionably a good
swordsman. In addition to this be was a
most Insufferable braggart, and his mili
tary accomplishment was his one topic of
thought and conversation. He had about
him a very patronizing air. which he pro
ceeded to inflict upon the inoffensivo
Frenchman, and his familiar slaps on the
back .evidently displeased the stranger. -Finally
a particularly emphatic thump be
tween the little Frenchman's shoulders
produced as response a stinging slap in
tho face, which left tho red mark of a
small hand sharply prominent against the
otherwise deathly pale face of the young
Speechless with rage, the young man
found his desk, and shortly afterward,
through a friend, challenged the French
man to mortal combat. The latter apolo
gized, in fact did all in his power to undo
the mischief of his hasty blow, in vain.
"Nothing but blood can wipe out that in
sult," the young man said haughtily. The
details were arranged, the Frenchman, as
tho challenged party, choosing rapiers.
Greatly to the surprise of the hot blooded
young challenger, tho cashier of the bank,
who knew the Frenchman well, acted as
the.lattcr's second. The day came and
the hour. The principals stepped to posi
tion, saluted, and the blue blades crossed
with that smooth, gliding sound which is
music to tho ear of the true swordsman.
The Frenchman, whose familiarity with
his weapon was evident at the start, con
fined himself at first entirely to defense,
turning his opponent's point with a grace
of movement and absence of fear or nerv
ousness which were poetry in action. Tho
young man grew bolder, his thrusts be
gan to have an air of ferocity which
seemed to anger the Frenchman a trifle,
and turning aside his opponent's thrust
he made a quick lunge, and the young
American barely parried.
Another quick thrust and a turn of the
wrist were too much for him; there was a
sharp snap and the top button of bis coat
flew across the room. Angry at this evi
dent trifling, the button's owner made a
spiteful lunge, which was quickly parried
and the next button was snapped away.
One after another the shining buttons on
his natty blue braided jacket were cut off
by the Frenchman's ready point. De
cidedly "rattled" at his opponent's skill
and the irrepressible smiles of the seconds
and surgeon, the young derk now, with
greater rapidity and less caution, made
heree lunges, any one of which would
have driven the sharp rapier through the
body of tho cool Frenchman, while the
little man, quietly parrying, with the
sharp point of his weapon stripped the
front of the young man's jacket to rib
bons. The contest had lasted some twenty
minutes when suddenly the Frenchman
caught the swiftly advancing point of his
opponent, turned it aside, slipped his own
sword quickly down along the other's
blade, turning it with a quick wrist mo
tion so that it partly wound around it,
and with a sharp wrenching motion tore
the weapon away and sent it Hying across
the floor. Then ho saluted, threw his
weapon down and left the room. It sub
sequently transpired that the foreigner
was and is-r-a member of a once noble
French family, a captain in the French
army, and his teachers have been some of
the best swordsmen in France. The
young American has not challenged any
miscellaneous foreigners since, and is less
Inclined to talk of his experience or skill.
Leader of a Monkey Tribe.
When they get ready to start on their
expedition an old monkey, tho leader of
the tribe, with a staff in his hand, so as to
stand upright more easily, marches ahead
on two legs, thus being more devated
than the others, so as to see signs of dan
ger more readily. The rest follow him on
all fours. The leader advances slowly and
cautiously, carefully reconnoitering in
all directions, till the party arrives at the
corn field. He then assigns the sentinels
to their respective posts. 'All being now
in readiness, the rest of the tribe ravage
and eat to their heart's content. When
they retire each one carries two or threo
ears of corn along, and from this provision
the sentinels are regaled on then arrival
at their lair.
Here we see ability to rule and a will
ingness to submit to rule; a thoughtful
preparation of means to the end in view
and a recognition of the rights of the
sentinels to be suitably rewarded at the
dose of the expedition. Wherein does
all this differ from a similar foray of a
tribe of savage men? The only difference
is in degree; otherwise it is much the
same. Professor Edwin Emerson in Pop

John Vance Cheney in The Century.
Sterlea ef Confederate Meaey.
Congressman Grimes, who represents
the Fourth Georgia district, told a couple
of stories very pertinent to' the subject -and
which greatly amused his' auditors:
."In the latter part of 1863.". said Mr.
Grimes, "a young man who lived in La
Grange, Ga., became possessed. cf the sum
. of $500 in Confederate money. . He was
of a thrifty turn and wanted to add to It.
With that purpose in view he invested his .
money in a bar'l of whisky. This he sold
by the drink, and at the end of the week
' had disposed of the whole barrel and had
$1,200 in hand, a net profit of $700. The
voting man was . highly . elated. He saw
his way clear to a fortune in a short time.
f "Of course he dedded to bay more
whisky at wholesale and sell it by the
small measure, but he had not taken into
account the wear and tear which the
credit of the Confederacy had suffered
during the week which it had taken him
to sell out his barrel. When he went to
invest in another supply he found that he
could not make a purchase similar to his
first one for less than $1,500. The financial
fluctuations involved in-the transaction
knocked him so completely out that he re
tired permanently from commercial life
and hired himself out as an agriculturist."
When his hearers had. finished laughing
at this story, Mr. Grimes gave them the
other one. "Ifwas in the same town'
La' Grange and in the latter part of
1864." he said. "One old gentleman there
who had persistently predicted tho failure
of the Confederacy was one day deriding
the - currency that was then . so plentiful
and of such little value. He said that it
was so worthless that nobody would even
steal it or pick it up if found on the street.
He pulled out a $1,000 bill Confederate'
money, of course and declared that' he
could tack it' with .a pin to the fence
around the court house, leave it there five
hours, and that nobodv would - think
enough of it to put it in his pocket.. His
offer was accepted. The note was pinned'
to the fence and at the end of five, hours'
he and the man to whom he had been talk- -ing
went out to see what there was to be
seen." Mr. Grimes here paused.
"Well?" inquired Mr. Allen, of Missis
sippi. "The $1,000 note was' there," replied
Mr. Grimes, "and pinned beside it was an
other Confederate bill, the denomination
of which was $2,000." Atlanta Constitu

Lower the Meat Bills.
' Everybody has his or her way of living,
i and, if they would tell, the whole race
, might be benefited by it. But whatever
! the theories may be, whether one reader
believes in a meat diet and another does
not, it would be interesting to know how
each succeeded. The writer has often
heard the remark: "I wonder how a man
on $10 manages to live?" Yes, it may be
a wonder, but hundreds of men do it, and
the writer knows, within the range of his
own experience at least, half a dozen men
who do it, and do it seemingly very nicdy.
Their wives wear inexpensive but neat
and attractive looking dothes, the chil
dren who go to school look as dean and
as well dressed as the children of some
other men who earn more, and the pre
sumption is that each of these families
get enough to eat. At all events they
certainly look as if they did.
Now, with a little study, the writer
does not hesitate to say many families
could save money.
Bight in the house; right on top of the
table. If a man can afford certain dishes
and doesn't care whether he will later be
troubled with dyspepsia, all right; but if
he has not the very necessary "where

his meat bills. By this means he would
have more money to expend for clothing
and for a few of the things he cannot now
enjoy and which he is forced to consider
as luxuries. Boston Globe. .

The antiquities of Toledo are not the
only interesting things. The sights from
day to day on the streets and in the family
circle are peculiar The very children
have queer sport3 One of their favorite
pastimes is to parade In a dark hall with
slow step aud drone a chant in Imitation
of a -church festival service. Boys are
also fond of playing bull fights, "the
bull" part being taken bv some lad not
distressed by rough handling. Owing to
the narrow streets, everything seems
mixed up together wine shops, vege
tables, children, citizens, cadets, loafers
and beggars mingling in ono mass.
The people generally are simple and.
good natured.. The chief street is shaded
by awnings, and every' public doorway is
screened by a striped curtain. Foreigners
visiting the town are dubbed the
"St rangers." and. so referred to on every
occu&i'.m when designation is necessary.
The leading place of amusement is called
the "Grand Summer theatre." ' It is with

common thing in the evening to hear
guitar duets In the narrow, dark streets,
being given as serenades to ladies in the
house before which the playing is done.
The skill ' displayed by some of the
players is marvelous, and the music is de
lightful. The trebla is carried on a small
instrument, called a "maudura" .that
makes a most pleasing combination with
the guitar. Often professional phi ers are

- The "Town Site Company-"
The "Town Site Company," I ought to
explain,- for tho benefit of some eastern
.readers, is an association of men who make
up their minds that a town should, would
or could. grow .op at a certain point in a
wild region whither rivilization is tending,
of whither a rush is expected, contingent
upon a certain event, like the discovery
of precious metals or-the completion of a
railway. Under laws of the United States'
these men "take up" a. certain area upon
which .to build their town, and proceed to
put it Into as' presentable a shape as cir
cumstances ' will admit, by surveying
streets, indicating parks and reser
vations for public buildings hospitals,
churches, dty hall, libraries and
soon; by bringing water from the hills,
planting shade trees and perhaps building
a big hotel. In many cases tho railway is
a partner and hdps by concentrating'
operations at that point; indeed, tho exi
gencies of railway construction andoper

- How Italian Laborers Work.
As I stand gazing from my study win
dow I see a deep trench 230 feet in length,
C feet deep, 0 feet wide. In it stand be
tween forty and fifty Italians, shaggy
haired, bright eyed, bronzed skinned, fur
rowed with dirt, their hands, knuckles,
their clothes tho commonest and cheapest
obtainable. They're working. The first
.thought which occurs is, where are the
Irish who, ten years ago, did this work?
I don't know where they are. They cer
tainly are not doing this class of work to
day. Thero are probably fifty miles of
various kinds of trenching going on in
this dty today, and in all those fifty miles
I doubt if you can find fifty Irishmen, but
I will find you at least 2,500 Italians.
The second thought is, why pay these
men for tins kind of work? What kind
of work? Lazy work. Why. there's a
group standing immediately in front of
me now, three of them leaning on picks,
two of them on shovels, while another
lazily tosses a half shovelful of dirt from
the bottom of the trench on to the wind
row by its side. They don't begin to
earn the traditional dollar a day, yet
there they are, and it is a very serious
problem, first, what has become of the
Irish, to whom this great work was
formerly intrusted alone? and, second, by
what process of reasoning do contractors
find it to bo to their advantage to hire
such lazy workers as these fellows show
themselves to be? Joe Howard hi Chicago
A Crater in Foil Blast.
Walking down Tremont street not
long ago with a friend we turned into a
shop, attracted by the latest fad in gold
hair pins temptingly displayed. As we
stood in blissful contemplation of this
golden fruit, forbidden us by the shallow
ness of our pockets, the spell was broken
by some subtle attraction about a woman
who was on the point of leaving. Half
unconsciously I looked up, but what I be
held restored me fully to realization of
the ridiculous. In a stage whisper I men
tioned to my friend that she would miss
the sight of the season if she did not look
around. Whereupon she turned, and
turned again, for one glance at the
creature of fashion who, as I supposed,
had adjusted a miniature Mount Vesuvius
to the rear of her head, out of which
streamed great curls of lava destroyed
all the equilibrium of risibles in my
"Seriously," I said, "what has she on?"
"Any one would know you had been out
of town," was the reply; "did you come
in on a hay wagon that you do not know
hair done a la Medid?" "I knew before
your burst of information that I had met
a jay," was my stern answer, "and I trust
the last of that species." But these girls!
I presume you are doing it, or will, so
why waste words? We moved back to
the counter behind which stood the derk
convulsed with inward laughter, that
would come out when he caught sight of
our grinning countenances. The result
was that we triced our merriment, as the
whole affair had been irresistible. The
hair was a streaky yellow, hoisted into a
projectile below the crown of the head.
At the extreme outer end of this protu
berance were fastened what the roman
ticist would term "a duster of ringlets,"
but in my dull, material way I should
pronounce false curls of precisely a lava
tint. Consequently my first thought was
of a crater in full blast. Boston Cor.
Wendell Phillips' Canoes career.
Wendell Phillips was a natural aristo
crat. His father was the first mayor of
Boston, and the famous schools at Andover
and Exeter recognize his family as their
founder. He was reared in affluence, and
at school was an athlete as well as a
student. He loved to box, and to run and
to row. He was the bitterest opponent
of the first temperance association formed
in Harvard college. In his early life he
loved all the good things of tho world.
Ho was fond of the physical as well as the
intellectual. He loved the beautiful, and
admired women above almost any young
man of his class. Yet his whole life
changed as he grew older. He married a
girl on her sick bed, who never got well,
and he devoted his whole life to her care.
He became an advocate of temperance,
and when he saw William Lloyd Garrison
dragged through the streets in the anti
slavery agitation, he determined to devote
his life to redressing the wrongs of the
black man. "Why dont the. mayor call
out the militia," of whiek he was one, he
cried. Fronhigkciui.furroindhis he

association with the Scotch working
classes. The different departments of
labor have all developed songs peculiar to
the class of work. The dairymaids of
Greece and other old Aryan races wovo
their work into music, and so gave to it
an air and atmosphere of poetry. This
was spedally true of herding and pastoral
labor of all sorts. The Russians have a
corn grinders' song. The old chimney
sweepers' chant that was heard in our
streets fifty years ago has vanished, but
stevedores and sailors perform work with
chanting or intoning. Song lightens
