Tom WnH Very Komi of Trnserty nncl

111. A Hustle Ijtul
Wns Ho.
TwentyfourYcnrn Aeo.
In 1BC5 young Tom lidlson ciuno lo
Cincinnati mul took n situation auop-
orntor In the Western Union telegraph
olllcc , then nt Uio corner of Fourth mid
\Vtilnut streets , bnya n writer in the
Enquirer. Ills fixco was us bland and
Hourly ns round as the full moon ; his
hair , of no particular color , but strug
gling toward chestnut , was abundant
and rebellious of restraint. Ho had
oven then nstudont-llko stoop of the
shoulders , though I think ho had stud
ied nothing slnco his rudimentary
schooling except a few bound volumes
of the North American Review , which
ho kept cnrafully in his trunk. They
wore the gift of his father.
lie was plainly clad. His manner
was a mixture of diilldonco and solf-
possosslon , the latter the underlying
though loss prominent quality. In
speech ho was slow to start and bashful
at beginning , but talked with vigor and
confidence , oncwunder way. Among
the Binart , drossy young gentlemen of
the ollico ho cut no great figure. IIo
did not expect to , of cotirso , for the boy
in his teens , who had como from a coun
try station for the first time into a city
office to associate with persons who had
reached the ( to him ) goal of human am
bition Dilly this , the great "sender , "
"who dees nearly fifty words a minute
right along , and Jim that , the "re
ceiver , " who takes press reports for
hours without " ' the
"breaking1' newcomer -
comer in this exalted circle is naturally
abashed. Ho fools like a county com
missioner suddenly elevated to the
house of lords. Hdibon , among those
glib exports with their jaunty talk
nbout city topics that were new to him ,
was shy. It was only the cherubic
sniilo that always hovered about his
lips , and the merry twinkle In his eyes
denoting n rich and unfailing coed
humor that saved him from being
laughed at for his crudencss. Ho was
quiet , but his eyes were always in sym
pathy with any fan that was going , and
that smile was capable of wide expres
sion. It was n discriminating smile ,
however , and failed to respond to the
parrotv reiterations of slang and the
ooarbo sallies that often pasbod for wit ,
but was over alert for anything brighter
or amusing. His dress did not im
prove ; its governing princiulo seemed
lo bo frugality. He took little interest
in the amusements of the other opera
tors , which were generally of the free-
and-easy kind. Economy was not large
ly cultivated there , and , though no
body could dislike Edison , ho was not
classed among the smart men of the
oflico. Only 0110 thing templed him to
extravagance ; that was tragedies at
the theater.
A llery ambition to bo a tragedian
possessed his soul. Ho .vas deeply im
pressed bv Edwin Adams' Richard III.
at Wood's theater. Hq , studied the
part of Richard , and many a day the
clicking of the "sounders" on No. 7
wire ( the Kentucky Contraband No. 4.
"West ( the Indianapolis wire ) , which ho
worked , formed an accompaniment to
Richard's soliloquy.
"Now is the winter of our discontent
Mtulo glorious summer by tlio Son of York.
And nil tlio clouds that lowered upon our
In the deep bosom of tlio buried , "
"Which Edison rendered with his boom
ing moon of a face eclipsed in gloom ,
mm his shoulders humped up as high
and his voice dumped down as low as ho
could possibly got it. Ed Gilllland ,
alnco associated with Mr. Edison as a'n
electrician , was an operator in the Cin
cinnati oflico then and had the entree
to the regions behind the scenes at
Wood's theater. Through him Edison
gained access to the stage and saw the
Inner workings of the drama. Perhaps
that dissipated the glamour with which
the stngo had duv./lea his oyes. At any
rate , dramatic instinct waned within
him , and it was not long until his active
mind turned to another subject.
Ho began investigating electricity.
Ho gathered up all available odd bits of
apparatus that were derelict about the
ollico , to experiment with. Ho had a
few friends in the ollico who liked him
and admired him because ho was HO
good-natured and honest , and was so
little influenced by the criticism
or ridicule of the sharp and dashing
spirits that led public opinion there ,
and ho had such a quiet way of doing
ns ho plrtisod and pleasing to do very
sensibly , and occasionally in a sleepy
way ho made a joke or a keen remark
that grow funnier or keener the longer
you considered It. Ho occupied a cheap
room in the top story of a big business
building on Third street , and ate at the
most inexpensive restaurants. Ho
Kept rather to himself in the matter of
Ills room and eating , as , indeed , ho did
in many ways , and though never rude
nor repellent , ho soon had a few friends
and the rest of the force was inclined
to consider him a common-plnco , uiiiii-
torofatiiif , * chap from the country. Ho
was not long in gutting to the front
as an operator. His "copy" was beauti
ful small , round , erect letters as plain
as print and much prottior. The only
"copy" In the ollico to compare with It
was tlmt of George ICunnan ( now the
writer and traveler ) , who was then the
assistant chief operator in that ollico.
Edison took his work easily , but kept
up with the rushing "bonders" Ho was
not nbovo the ambition of the ordinary
operator to avoid "breaking. " oven at
the risk of u slight inaccuracy. Oncu
when ho was receiving the Associated
press report I was standing bv talking
with him as ho worked , and this led to
him mlbsing n uaino of bomo man who
figured In an important wnv in the
Itotn. "Did you got that nathoV" said
Tom , as its flying stylus stooped its
awift course over the "manifold"shoots.
I shook my head. "All right ; we'll
hand him down to posterity as John
Smith , " was the quick reply , ana it
was so written. There was no time to
hoaUiilc ; the sounder was rattling ou *
over forty words a minute , and the re
port proceeded without any Interrup
tion from Cincinnati , Wh'ile at Cin
cinnati Edibon wus experimenting upon
the duplex system , which ho afterward
made practical , so that notv , with sub
sequent improvements , four messages
go simultaneously on one wlro two
ouch way.
A few years ago I met him in Cin
cinnati the flrfct time since wo had de
claimed Richard III. together in juvenile
nileduya of telegraphy. There wax no
climbing to a lonely loft to find him in
n dingy dun this timo. The elevator

to the best private v-.rlor of the most
expensive hotel in town , Bnrrlnt ; Rome
doufnoss and an Ineffectual effort of hia
hair lo acquire a definite color by turnIng -
Ing gray , the chnngo in him was re
markably slight. The eaino Inno
cently nulzzical smile w/m on his
lips held in check by the etuno
knowing twinkle of his eyes. The same
no. It was not the s.-uno. but a very
similar null of clothes , Indicated recent
patronngo of a tailor with whom style
was no object ( although the great'In
ventor had boon marrlqd tlio day before -
fore ) and the same determination to
BmoKo a cigar as long ( or aa short ? ) as
it could bo hold without cooking his
fingers waa ( qnmront , but there was
probably i0 ! confsdifference in the price
of cigars of yore and now. It was no
formal call upon the now famous Inven
tor , ns I somewhat anticipated.
It was a jolly chat over the old times
of IbOo , ami Edison's interest in former
comrade ? , his recollection of their for
mer traits , and amusing Incidents of his
association with them was lomarkablo.
I asked If ho still had the old volumes
of the North American Review. "Ah ,
yes , " ho replied , "and 1 have about
twenty thousand volumes besides in my
library now.
Hit fnmo and fortune had increased
In still greater ratio , but his manner
was as unaisuuilng , his smile as free as
twenty years before. It would require
a moro powerful environment than
fame and fortune can provide to affect

No one who was present at the per

"Siegfried" Wednesday
night can forget the tremendous bonsa-

It was as unexpected as a diamond
ring in a bowl of consommo.
It came in like a zephyr and wont out
like a c > clone.
In a moment Emma Abbott , Amelio

The sleeping goddess was to bo awakened -

Siegfried approached the slumbering

The orchestra glided into a tremulous ,
half-frightened movement , full of re
strained anguish and compressed
"melos , " ready for use and guaranteed
to stanp in any clime.
Nearer and nearer.
"Time ! "
A minute elapsed.
A long , perilous minute full of seconds
and burdened with a world of happen
At that moment an emotional tidal
wave swept over the vast concourse.
An incandescent globe was hoard to
burst under the tremendous strain.
Was the world about to ondV
A second minute.
Fully as long as the first , but of a more
intense , llame-swept character.
Siegfried did not stir.
Brunnhildo was still entombed in her
hypnotic spell.
The crowd moved un easily and

The orchestra was clearly becoming

A cataclysm was impending.

Who could toll what wild , delirious ,

Had ho become translated , or had ho
a cramp In his neck ?
The veil of impenetrable mystery
hung ovnr these vital questions. Noouo
was there to answer them ; Berry
Mitchell was invisible.
The electric current circulating
around the hall had made fourteen
laps by this time and passed the quar
to r-milo post.
Someone stirred.
It was only adudo reaching for a gum
But the spell was broken.
Ono straw has often fractured the

The deed was done.
None too soon.
The concentrated energy of the whole
assemblage was escaping through the

Just as the earth-throb heat finds
vent through a two foot goysor.
The circus was over.

There was a deafening burst of Wng-

Austin Zai'SJiiTlSa is seventy-three
years old , buf "fio is still able to con
verse in eight dilTerent languages , so
well have his mental facultioH been pre
served , says a Chicago special lo tlio St.
Louis Post-Dispatch , Although ho is
not now too proud to wear a common
watchman's b.ulgo , his \\onkciietl arm
is able to do little more than carry his
old cane. Tlioro was a time when Na
poleon fcarod his might and had him
banished from France.- Born in llol-
Inno in 1810 , lie grow up to boa man im
bued with all the .patriotism that the
natives of that doomed territory are
known to possebs. IIo went to the i-'rus-
faian military school at Uorlin , then
conducted under the care of Frederick
III. When ho loft college ho could
speak Russian , Bohemian. Italian , Ger
man , French and Polish. lie was a
lieutenant in the Prussian army at that
timo. hut there was no war inhich to
exorcise his untamed spirit and display
his military attainments.
"What waa I to do ? " said ho in re
lating his history. "I felt that I wanted
to got into war , to bo a ooldier , and
some day become , perhaps , a great gen
eral. I severed my connection with the
Gorman army and joined the French ,
who were then at war in Africa. I wont
to Algiers and fought without a scar ,
picking up while there tlio Arabian
language. I berved in the French army
until 1818 , and returned to Paris. I
then hold a high position , and my ad
vice was carefully listened to. I was
opposed to Napoleon's jxjlioy , and it
soon reached his ears. IIo wanted to
know what this Alpiors fighter liiul to
say about him , and I Was brought before -
fore u court-martial. Tlio result was
that T was exiled. I communicated with
the governor of Switzerland , who mot
mo at the border with a carrringo and
took mo from the French boldiors to
Geneva. The Swiss wanted me to re
main there and take n position like Unit
of the bccrotary of war hero , but I
wanted to go to London. Accordingly
I was escorted back throuirh Franco ,
through the heart of Paris , uniior pro
tection of Swiss soldiers. In London I
