About five years ago a business man of
New York whom It were well to deaignaU
as Smith received and accepted an offer
to become munuger for a large manufactur
ing concern in Philadelphia, lie and his
family had been living in their new home
perhaps two months, when Mrs. Smith an
nounced to her husband:

and ahe told me that they had moved here

chief rival of Smith's Crm.
"Well, that's peculiar," remarked Smith.
"Yes." answered Mrs. Smith, "and they're
living at 07 South Forty-ninth street and
our number is 607 South Forty-seventh
On going to Philadelphia the Smiths had
placed their daughters In boarding school.
A few days after Mrs. Smith had met Mrs.
Joaea the Smith girls announced:
"Well, it's funny, but Ethtrl Jones, the
girl who lived on the same floor with us in
New York, started in at our school this

where "Smith became manager of a busi
ness entirely different in character from
that of which he waa the responsible head
In the Quaker city. The family home was
established in an apartment house near by
Columbia university, that the girls might
be sent through the various schools and
still be at home.
They had been in the Horace Mann
school but a few weeks when they came
home one afternoon bubbling with excite
ment. "What do you think?" they exclaimed.
"Ethel Jones started in at Horace Mann
this morning. Her father has come here
to be manager of a buainess that is to
start In opposition to father's. And guess
where they live? On the other aide of our
street, just two doors below us!"
Both Smith and Jones are still at the
head of the rival concerns, their homes
have not been shifted, and one of the
Smith girls and the Jones girl are now
In the same class at college.
And a peculiar thing about all this coin
cidence Is that though they have tried to
meet each other numerous times, and made
appointments to do ao, something has al
ways intervened to keep Smith and Jones
from making each other's personal ac
quaintance. Yet they feel that they are
not exactly unacquainted, and doubtless
with good reason.
Followed to fir York.
A few months after Smith had moved
back to New York a man who had been
under him in Philadelphia moved to the
metropolis where he took with 8mlth a
position somewhat aimllar in character to
the one he had held in Philadelphia. On
the day that the van company started
to transfer this man's household belong
ings to the freight depot, several squares
away, the manager of the company, who
waa superintending the work, said casually -
"By the way, we're also shipping to New
York today the household goods of a family
on the street next to yours and the number
of the house they're leaving la 4812, while
yours la 4810."
Two days later the man was looking
along 125th street. In New York, for the
sign of a van company. Locating one. he
went in and asked the man at the desk,
who chanced to be the manager, if he
could undertake the job that day.
"Sure." waa the reply. "Where are the
goods coming froiuf"
"Where did you have them billed to?"
"The Harlem river station."
"That's peculiar. Not ten minutes ago
another man who has moved from Phil
adelphia and had his goods sent to the Har
lem river station dropped In and engaged
me to haul for him. Where do you want
your stuff taken?"
"Two hundred and five West One Hun
dred and Third."
"Pretty near the same," was the reply.
"The other man has taken a flat at 105 West
One Hundred and Third. How many vans
will be necessary how many moved you In
"Three," said the man.
"Say, this Is getting to be sort of un
canny." exclaimed the van manager. "Do
you know that's Just the answer the other
fellow made me? Have you a piano?"
"Neither had he. By the way, I see on
your receipt here that the Blank company
moved you in Philadelphia. Well, that com
pany moved the other fellow, too. And,
good lrd, if you didn't come from houses
with nearly the same numbers yours was
4810 and his was 4812!"
The man and his wife wbo went to 20G
West One Hundred and Third street had no
more than got aettled when the wife said
one evening at dinner:
"I made a surprising discovery while I
was downtown shopping this morning. I
almost ran into a school friend of mine
from Pittsburg. Her husband has Just
moved here and they've taken an apart
ment In this street Just two blocks away.
And she said to me, when we got to talking
p'jout the worries of moving and all that,
Who moved you Into your apartment?' I
told her. And what do you think she said?
'Why, the same company moved ua, too.' "
Since ahe has been in One Hundred and
Third street this woman has discovered
four friends of her schoolgirl days living In
the same street, and all except one pre
ceded her to the city by several year a

An iron manufacturer of Boaton was en
tertaining a wealthy Spanish customer
from Havana. They had several rounds of
drinks, and, before the Boston man handed
a 810 bill to the waiter, he Jocosely kissed it
"Wait a minute," spoke up the Spaniard,
as ha took the bill out of the waiter's
bauds. "Siacs you seem to thick ao much
of that bill, I'll write my name on it for
good luck to us both."
Which he did, in ink, and then handed
back the money to the waiter, who soon
brought the change.
Two month later the Spaniard was In
New Orleans. He walked Into a cigar
store to buy a pocketful of bis favorite
brand of cigars, handed the clerk a $20
bill and received among the change a 810
bill. He was carelessly folding it when
his eyes caught some writing across the
center of the bill. His curiosity aroused,
he took a close look that writing waa his
own name! The God of chance had put
Into his hands the very 810 bill on whic'.i
he had written his name in a Boston cafe
eight weeks before.
The Spaniard is not only a man of wealth,
but also of leisure, and he determined to
discover, If possible, the wanderings of the
bill from the time he inscribed it to the
day he received it in New Orleans. He
went to an Infinite amount of trouble, set
all sorts of machinery to -work and spent
not a little money, but after it was all
over he felt that he had been amply re
warded. For, while he was unable to fol
low the bill step by step, he did learn be
yond the peradventure of a doubt that a
few days after the bill had been handed
to the cafe waiter, it passed, unknown to
the Boston man, into his cash drawer, was
sent by his cashier to the bank, later turned
up In Havana in possession of the Span
lard's cashier, and next made Its appear
ance in the New Orleans cigar store. The
Boston man's cashier had particularly noted
the name on the bill, because of Its being
that of one of the firm's most valued cus
tomers, and he hud meant to call the mat
ter to the attention of his employer, but
It had slipped his mind. The Spaniard's
cashier had also noted the name, and nat
urally enough, and he had intended to
scpeak to his employer about it on the
Utters return from the states.
Croaaed the Wires.
Several years ago a certain man suddenly
disappeared, as men and women sometlm'-s
will. His family and closest friends mud"
every effort to locate him, but with no
success; it was as if the earth had swal
lowed him up, to use an old expression.
One friend, in particulur, who had im
portant dealings Hlth the mlsHing man,
was extremely anxious to find him, but
at hut he, too, had to give up the task in
About two weeks after he bad oult
searching, on the very date when the
mls.sin iimn's presence waa most desired,
owing to a business deal, the friend stepped
into a booth to cull up a business acquain
tance in a town a hundred miles distant.
He had Just started to talk when the wire
became crobaed with another, and Instead
of hearing the voice of the man he had
called up, he suddenly found himself listen
ing to that of the missing friend.
"Hello! Hello!" It said Impatiently. "I'm
in Scranton. Is this"
"This 1b your friend Brown," shouted the
man, whose conversation had been inter
rupted, quickly conquering his astonish
ment, "and I want to know what on earth
made you disappear a month ago and where
0,f course, the man who had been missing
up to that moment was also duly aston
ished at the coincidence brought about by
accident. But, to make matters brief, he
then and ther went into consultation with
his friend concerning the latter's Important
business deal, and the next day he returned
to the bosom of his family and was for
given for his protracted spreey.
Told teh Same Story.
A firm of publishers ordered from a well
known writer on things out-of-doors a true
story that he had known for many years
without using, of how a German, despond
ent because he had spent for drink thejo
that his employer had sent him out
to change, wandered to a pier with the In
tention of committing suicide'. Ae he sat
around waiting for the crowd gathered
about a yacht to disperse, so no one would
be at rand to interfere with his plan, a
man mounted a box to auction off the
yacht. The German, as he thought of that
stolen 83 and his disgrace, mechanically
nodded his heud from time to time, as some
men In t'eep thought will do, and at last
the auctioneer called out: "Sold to the
gentleman seated over yonder."
At that moment In rushed a well dressed
man Jand excitedly Inquired whether or not
the yacht had yet been sold. He was told
that the German had purchased It. Rush
log u? to the latter, he said: "I'll give
you fl.J cash ubove the price you paid
for it." The German, still thinking hard
about the disgrace, nodded mechanically,
and the next moment 81. In bills was
stuffed Into the hands.
Several months intervened between the
purchase of the story and Its publication.
Several days after It was published the
writer happened to pick up another per.od
Ical and in turning over its pages was
startled to find that here was an article
by an entire stranger relating the self
same facts that he had Incorporated in his
own article. Later, it developed that this
second writer, like the first had been in
possession of the information for years, and
also, only a few months before the publica
tion of his article had it occurred to him
to make use of the plot that had been
ready at hand for so long. Washington

A former "hello" girl of the Washington
Telephone exchange recently related one of
her experiences on the wire, which she said

"A man who worked in a downtown store
was in the nablt of calling up a wuinan
friend of his several times a day. He hud
Just the sweetest voice 1 had ever heard,
and his conversation was simply angelic.
His voice had a ring that was both capti
vating and musical, and I must confess I
fell In love with that voice. His charming
tone and suavity led me to believe that ho
must be the handsomest man In this part
of the country, and I was almost dying to

the exchange and sauntered down to the
store in which he was employed. I knew
his name, having beard It called fre
quently over the line, and after enuring
his business place I asked a woman to
point out Mr. Blank to me.
" There he is over yonder by that show
case,' said the clerk.
"I looked In the direction Indicated, and
my dream of manly beauty was quickly
and rudely shattered. Instead of the hand
some fellow. I had expected to find. Mr.
Blank aas as ugly a mortal as I had ever
set eyes upon. He was buldheaded, one of
his eyes looked to the east, while the other
gased In a west -by-north direction- His
nose was crooked, his mouth large and Ir
regular, and he walked with a 'hoppy-go-fetch-lf
effect In a word, he was as ugly
as a mud fence that had been struck by
"Several months later I was Introduced
to Mr. Blank at a social function, and had
a long conversation with him. I could have
listened to him until daylight. He was so
affable and interesting and smart-whew!
He could talk on any topic under the sun
and carry you right along with him. I
have often heard of descriptive writers. He
was a descriptive talker. He could take
you from laughter to tears, from the sub
lime to the ridiculous. His charming per
sonality was such that it served as a mys
tic mask for his physical ugliness and de
formity, and through the mare of his con
versation his ugliness disappeared and M
really appeared beautiful to me.
