What a Frl'ond of the Drummers
Haa to Say. '
A BIO DAY AT INQIANAPOUIS.

A Friend oflho Hoys.
Mr. C. L. Bottn , nu old time friend of
the drummer , hns the following article
in n recent edition of the Epoch under
the caption "Drummers. "
It may he stated that not one drum
mer in ten llkoq his situation. After
the novelty of the HfowenraotT an in-
tcnso loathing of the * 'road" grows upon
him. Thcro in something utterly re
pugnant to the average man in being
ohllgSd , "willy-nilly , " to hurry from
place to place as if driven by an antique
fury. To a married man It is especially
so , and therefore most drummers are
young tind single.
The army of commercial travelers
from this city alone has hoon estimated
at G0,000 , and , In my opinion , that is below -
low the number. Benton , Philadelphia
and Baltimore are i > ro | > ortlonally repre
sented , and there is scarcely a town or
oven a village in the east that has not
its contingent. In no other country
has iho drummer such a Hold to cover
ns in this. Many have n whole conti
nent for a foraging ground , and the
experienced drummer thinks no moro
of going to. San Francisco , or Mexico ,
or St. Paul , than lie docs of going to
Jersey City or Brooklyn. The "boys. "
us they arc called , are known individu
ally to men in remote country districts
who have never loft the shadowof their
native Inirgh. Without them many a
hotel would close up , and many numiaun
would sigh in vain for the "latest"
Now York fashions. They have nearly
superseded the picturesque peddler of
pur grandfather's days. lor the "store"
is everywhere and the drummer follows
Drumming , too , though there are
many indifferent specimens of its class ,
is n iitio art. To suit yourself to the hu
mor of your customer , to know when to
"bo bold nnd when to be abashed , to tlnt-
ter delicately , to persuade disinterest
edly , to present alluringly , to tickle the
car of sour indifference \yith a good
joke , to use the right word just in the
nick of time to gain the wavering mind ,
is a triumph of diplomacy which can
only bo appreciated by the initiated. A
Htory is told of Moore , of the famous
London house of Copostako , Moore &
Compton. Moore , from his wonderful
success as a drummer , was called the
Napoleon of the road , and fauch was the
admiration of his brother salesmen for
his abilities , that thcyufjedto help pack
Ills trunks , so that by catching ait early
train ho might increase his power of
Belling. There was one man to whom
no ono could soil , a stiff Quaker , who
declared ho would never buy from a
drummer. Moore laid a wngor that ho
would sell him a bill of goods at his first
call. lie was bettor than his word , for
be sold him the coat oil his own back ,
nnd a largo bill of goods ns well.
Everyone who wunts to sell anything
at wholesale is obliged to biro a drum
mer or bo loft behind in the race. The
drummer's position , th6n , is always an
\ important one , and if ho is a good sales
man ho can command a high salary.
Thuro are some men on the road to-day
getting higher salaries than judges on
the l > cnch , presidents of mercantile so
cieties , nnd by far the larger proportion
of literary men. So exacting , in fact ,
nro its conditions that to find one thor
ough in all its requirements is not very
fcr There is no doubt , therefore , that In
spite of occasional annoyances to trades
men , the drummer is' a'most useful
trade institution. Like death and taxes ,
lie has come to stay , nnd never fulls to
pay us his call. His mode of lifo culti
vates an ama/.ing fortitude of "check. '
The drummer simon-pure never
"funks. " Good trade , bad trade , or no
trade at all , he , like Uorutlo , takes with
equal thanks. Ho may go for weeks
without a sale , and then atone for it all
li : with n grand coup. Long did the south
ern states put a ban. of u tax ou him.
They had carried protection to its ulti
mate conclusion. But the drummer
triumphed. Ho evaded the tax in every
possible way. Ho fought thorn in the
Jaw courts and legislatures and now the
obnoxious decrees are rescinded.
Through his state societies ho obtained
from railway companies special rates on
bngffage , and from hotels on board. Ho
may know nothing of Plato and little of
Herbert Spencer , but for downright
"cutonoss" and worldly resource com
mend mo to the drummor.
Why Ho Didn't hike tlio Hotel.
Merchant Traveler : "No. s Ir , " said
the traveler to an Evoulng Sun re
porter , "I won't put up at that house
again. They don't run it on the proper
system. They don't look after their
yuosts the way they should. " ' ,
As the house ho mentioned was ono of
Now York's most popular and best
known hotels , the traveler was re
quested to jlvo his reasons for his do-
"Well , you remember I came down to
town about the middle of August ? "
Tlio reporter confessed that he did so
"I put up at the house then ,
nnd 11103- gave me a line room on the
third floor. There word dandy windows
In it , reaching wuy down to the tloor ,
nnd qulto ns wldo as the average double
door. I just luxuriated in thiwo win
dows. In fact , I foil at-lcop in ono of
the in1 that night , and , I don't know how
I came to do it , but I fell out of my
chair through the window into the
"l-'cll out of a third etory window ? "
"Yes , sir ; tlio third story window.I
waked up jest as I fell over the sign
bearing the hotel's nuino thnt ran ui-
roctly beneath ray window. It was too
Into' to stop myself , though I clutched
ut the sign mighty hard just the same. "
"But it's u wonder you woron't
killed' ! " '
"Well , I guess I would luivo beoii if I
luidu't ( anded on an awning over a shop
below. Fortunately the shopkeeper
hud forgotten to lift it up before going
homo nnd I landed on that and rolled
off kinder easy to the sidewalk. It
was a mighty narrow escape I can toll
you , nnd I was pretty mad about It , and
the next morning when I got up again
I went down and eave the proprietor
fits. I told him then and there thnt I'd
never enter his dUrnod house again un
less ho took some stojw -protect his
gucrta against subh fearful ris'its. "
"What did he say thatV"
"Oh ho got sassy , There's no use
making complaints' to these hotel keop-
crs. Ho said I ought to bo glad' enough
I wusn't killed , without , coming to him
pnd asking him'to put up slats over hla
windows. So I aworo I'd never go near
him ainiiil under any'circumstances. "
"How did ho take 'it ? "
"Oh. ho didn.'t sceui to. care much ,
isaid if I would come again he'd have
me locked up in his safe with other val
uables. Pretty fresh crowd these hotel
keepers. Ho 11 leave these windows
that way until someone gets killed ; but
you can bet your bottom dollar 'twontbo '
mo. No sir. It's bad enough to full
into the stroct with nothing but a night
shirt on , and I ain't going to run any
more risks. "
P. II. Carrutc : When a man of largely
African ancestry once gets a thirst for
the quarters nnd other smaller silver
coins in the pockets of other pcoplo it
never leaves him. No habit is so deadly
to the other pcoplo more especially.
To the day of his death it will cling to
him ; ho cannot break himself of it , and
it is safe enough to say ho won't try.
I have been confined for several davs
in ono of the best summer hotels In New
England. I know it is one of the best
because the porters won't move any
further for a quarter then they will in
nn ordinary hotel for ton cents. My
waiter , a colored man with a gently un
dulating brow , is very attentive. Some
times as I sit out on the plnz/.n looking
at the scenery , which is highly recom
mended by theclork , ho will steal softly
out to my sldo and stand silently hold
ing out ono hand till I give him a quar
ter. Again I am awakened at 12 o'clock
in the morning byu gcntlo tapping on
my door nnd near him hoarsely whis
per through the keyhole and ask if I
haven't forgot something. When
among strangers it is very pleasant to
find that there is somebody who will
remember you and follow you two miles
up the creek when you go fishing and
call your attention to the fact thnt the
quarter you gave him has got a h in

The iipgro waiters hero are the most
nicely balanced financially that I have
ever seen. The lirat meal I ! > nt down
to a dark colored gentleman slid .up tome
mo and took my order. I gave him ton
cents ns a starter , nnd in a measure to ,
win his confidence. Ho moved olT across
the dining room quito briskly , hut
when about half way to the kitchen
suddenly stopped , made a few motions
with his legs like a .soldier on parade
when ho wants to Iceoo up appearances
and not proceed any further , and then
became motionless , gating straight bo-
fora him. I watched him for some time ,
and concluded that he was permanently
side-tracked nud spoke to the Jioiul
waiter , whom thov called Philadelphia.
"Philadelphia/1 I said , " 1 gave my
order to that stationary party over

and ho started off promptly , and in the
course of an hour or perhaps au hour

The drummer dabbled very oxton-
teuslvoly in politics at Indianapolis on
the 20th. The weather was wintry , the
mercury receding 40 degrees. It is
estimated between 12,000 and 3,000 com
mercial travelers , including the homo
organi/.atious , participated in the day's
demonstration. Lirge delegations ar
rived during the morning from Cincin
nati , Columbus , Dayton , Louisville ,
Lafayette , Port Wayne and Richmond
No large organized clubs wore pres
ent from other states , but small parties
of a dozen or two were in attendance
from Now York , Boston , Chicago , St.
Louis , Philadelphia , BulTalo , Cleveland -
land , Louisville , and other cities. At 2
o'clock the visitors assembled at Tom-
linson'ri hall and organ i/.od for a busi
ness mooting. They were cordially re
ceived by Mayor Denny. Resolutions
wore unanimously adopted , declaring
the republican commercial travelers of
the United States in mass .convention
do pledge our fealty to the doctrine of
protection , and protest against the re
modeling of the present tariff laws by
the enemies of protection , who arc tlio
friends of free trade.
At o o'clock the drummers had a pa
rade marching through the principal
btroots and out past-General Harrison's
residence. The general reviewed the
procession from his residence and was
enthusiastically cheered. Thcro were
2,500 marchers with ten bands. Every
man carried a cane or umbrella with a
small Hag attached. At the head of
the column marched "Undo Sam , " in
typical garb. Immediately behind came
two stalwart Ethiopians loading a mon
ster bull , on whose back sat a drummer
in costume presenting the hilarious
Irishman. The blanket on the bovine
road "John Bull rides the democratic
party wo ride John Bull. "
Thousands of pcoplo gathered along
the route to witness tlio parade. At
4:80 : they returned to Tomlinson's hall ,
where General Harricon addreosed
them. The gallarics wore filled with
spectators , amonir them several hun
dred Indies. The nudionco numbered
nearly 5,000 , nnd when General Ilarri-
eon appeared there was a repetition of
the wild scene of two weeks ago , when
the Chicago veterans were received.
Leo F. Salmon , n drummer , living at
ttl- East Sixty-eighth street , and now
employed by R. Levy & Co. , hatters , at
No. C32 Broadway , was engaged to Miss
Mary Louise Keuso. Ho lately wrote
her a brief note saying that ho was
about to bo married. Then came the
fair Mary's time. She brought suit in
.lustico Fallen's court last Tuesday ,
Counsellor Smith taking charge of her
interests. Miss Kouse took the stand
first ana swore that she had not only
lent money to Salmon but had sent
wearing apparel to him at various
plnces in the union where his wander
ings led him. She identified several
letters written to her by the thrifty
salesman upon the note paper of the va
rious hotels which ho honored with his
patronage. Those epistles begin
' 'Darling Lou , " ana are couched in
tender language. With avowals of
love are mingled requests for shoes ,
llnnnel shirts , silk belts , nnd other
necessaries of n swell's existence. He
wants a pair of patent lenthor shoes ,

mall if they don't weigh over four

The traveling fraternity is urged to
make use of this column at all times
and for all subjects of interest to themselves -
solves or the public. Eucti and every
member of the guild in the course of
his travels comes across an iiiiiniio
variety of items which would bo of in- |
tcrcbt. The men they meet and the '
success they are having , incidents at |
hotels and on the trains , treatment ro-
coivcd from railroads and railway om-
ployes ; casual reunions _ along the Hues ,
remimsconses . aud the like all contribute
to the rcadablcness of the drummers
column. , The "pine knots" contributed
by "C. O. D. " last week were exactly
what ia wanted but were received too
late. 1 AU matter intended for the
drummers column must be sent to the
ollico or deposited in tlio boxes not later
than Saturday evening.
Lot Them Vote.
The Chicago jobbers have generously
decided to call in their drummers to
vote at the coming presidential elec
tion. Commenting on the fact the Mer
chant Traveler says :
\Vo have conlimuillv advocated the
necessity of commercial men consider
ing the importance of the ballot and
have urged them to exercise that en
nobling power of their country's citizen-
hip. It was only necessary that they

his concession of their employers to

ous privilege without loss of time or

passing through a tobacco field a few
days ago , happened to run. across two
snakes , one a copperhead and the other
a chcken | snake , wrapped ' around oacli
other in n deadly erabracq , and fighting
with all the strength and venom they
possessed. Taking a.long stick ho car-
ricd them to an open field , where they
continued to battle until the copperhead
was killed. Sliming it over , the chicken
snake proceeded to swallow it whole ,
after which it was allowed to escape.
The chicken snake was seven feet long
and the copperhead five.
