;Tho 82,500 contribution sent to tho
conscience fund of tho treasury the
other day was tho largest save one that
has been received in seven years. JubI
about that long ago tho halves of eight
1,000 bills camo by mail, with an anony
mous noto saing' that tho other halves
would' bo, forwarded if acknowledgment
of tho llrst batch was mudo in tho news
papers. This was done, and Undo Sam
was richer by 8,000. No explanation
was otTcrcd. and tho nlfuir remains a
mystery. Tho exception abovo noted
was u "wud" of 94,91)6, simply folded in a
sheet of paper, with tho word "Con
science" scrawled on it. On ono occa
sion 'Postmaster General Wnnmmiker
got a letter with 91,000 in it and tho

Letters with inclosures intended frr
the, conscienco fund are usually ad
dressed to the secretary of tlio treasury.
By him they are sent to tho public
moneys division', which makes noto of
the amounts and deposits them witli
tho treasurer of tho United Slates. Tho
sums received aro almost always hi cash
with now and then a draft. They are
never uccompaniedby tho names of tho
Bonders, except ouco in a while in tho
cases of persons who hnve made mistakes
as to payments of customs duties. Tho
writtcu communicutior.B relating to
them aro vory brief as a rule. If other
wise they contain elaborate apologies

Tho letter was signed, "An Irish Man,"
and with it was enclosed S2.60. Another

dressed to tho "Conclanco Burough" of
tho treasury, explains that when tho tax
referred to was levied ho whb not able
to state his income without injuring his
business. Only tho other day a re
mittance of 9.'i.40was "received from n
man who felt sorry for "having beaten
his pussago on n government train
during tho war." Another sum of 9100
camo from an individual who regrettod
having been u party to certain underva
luations in tho mutter of customs duties.
It was poBttnurked "London" and wiib
signed, "Ono who is Suffering." Wrap
ping two pontage stumps was a scrap of
paper with tho words, "Money that be

I wish boiuo of tho Huprcmo court
justices would write their autobiograph
ies, I would like to know just how
Justlco Brown Bhot that burglar who
wus attempting to rob him. You know
tho story? Tho burglar stood beside
Brown's bed when ho awoko in tho
night and covered him with a pistol.
"I want jour watch und koy, Give
them to mov.tnd I'll make no noise, and
your life is safe." "All right," said tho
future justice, mid putting his hand
under his pillow,' he pulled out a re
volver, got' (lie drop on tho burglar and
killed him ' before ho had time to say
Jack Robinson, This is the outliuo of
tho story and it may not bo exactly
correct. There is no doubt, however,
that Judge Brown killed tho burglar
und in Fumothiug like this way. Take
tho life o JiiBtjco, Stephen J. Field.
What stories., hq ,oould .write? His
wholo cuiecr bus been tilled with in
teresting episodes. OhV'Ihuvo' heard
occuried while thtJlxllibleru wns raging
in Asia Minor. Tho missionaries
worked among the people, and Judgo
Vlold, then u boy, acted m u nurao for
cholera patients. Ono night ho was at
a dinner and ho saw ono of tho servants
who were waiting on tho tablo fall
dead. Thero wiib a cry of "tho plague"
and in a moment tho house was empty.
Think of his early 'struggles iu Cali
fornia. Ho landed In San' Francisco
with ten dollars in his pocket, und the
next morning, after paying his bills, ho
found ho hud just ono dollar left. He
had, however, sixty-four old newspapers
which ho had brought from Now York.
Ho got it boy to sell theso, offering him
hulf. They sold for 904-n dollar a
piece und tho $.'.2 thus gotten stitrttKi
him on tho road to fortune Ho hud to
defend himsolf iu those days, and while
lie wus in tho legislature ho sont a
challenge to a mini named Moore, who
had insulted him. The man who carried
tho challenge wus Duvid C. Broderick,
who wus afterwards shot by Torry, und
Terry wus, you know, shot not long ago
by ono of Field's friends. Broderick
saved Field's lifo early in tho fifties. As
I hear the story, tho two men were
standing in a hotel in San Francisco,
when Broderick saw a Spaniard throw
back his cloak und level his revolver at
Field. As quick an thought ho flung
himself between tho two men und
pushed Field nut of tho room, und his
uction saved his life. Such stories told
by Justice Field would bo full of in
terest. I doubt not tho other judges
could give him something, almost as
romantic, but thero is little probability
that they will bo heard from. just now.
A recent development of u most un
expected nature, which has come to puss
in tho cureor of ono of the fastest of
Washington's jennrawe ilova;, is now
creating somowliut of n seiisution among
tho friends of tho youth in question.
The hitter, it appears, has for some
timo pust been pursuing u course of
behuvior of a particularly unsutls
factory character, thereby causing the
most inteiiBo anxiety to his numerous
family circle, who uro all, young and
old alike, men and women of inflexible
virtue All efforts to lure the prodigal
son back from tho fai -off country into
which ho had wondered wcro unavail
ing, until within a few days ago, when
ho happened to drop into u hull whero
some members of tho Salvation Arlny
were holding one of their vigorous und
soul-stirring meetings. Our guy young
thoroughbred thought it tit first the
best fun in tho world "the rummest
thing, in fuct, ho had over struck," us ho
expressed it to ono of his boon com
panions who happened to bo with him.
As tho evening woro on, however, tho
affair seemed to him to loso its comical
aspect, and to tuko on a more serious
side; so much so, indeed, tliut though
ho hud como to scoff ho stayed to pray,
und beforo ho loft tho hull ho had en
listed in tho Washington corps of tho
"Army," with every appearance, too,
of being tho most sincere of penitents.
Now, tho amusing part of tho story is
that tho rigidly righteous of tho con
vert's numo and family, who belong, by
the way, to ono of tho most fuahiouuhlo
churcheBof the city, instead of being
grateful to tho instrumentality that
checked their erring kinsman iu his
downward course, aro indignant at
what thoy cull "tho low taste exhibited
by Churlio in tho manner of his conver
sation," and unanimously ussert that
"thoy would much prefer seeing him
twico aB bud us ho over wus to knowing
him leagued with sucli u hopelessly
vulgar set us tho Solvation Army."
Tho determination rocoutly formula
ted by tho ladies of tho cabinet, to the
effect that "small und ourlies" will bo
the principal feature of their social
program for too coming season, is
meant, I imagine, ns n sort of preparu
tiou for tho very moderate amount of
entertaining which may bo oxpeohtl
from them during tho winter, Tho
declaration has Hounded a note of alarm,
as it wero, in the fashionable world,
though thero are thoBo and they mo
many who assert that Washington
socioty Ib by no meruiB dependent on
tho oflicial circle to keep tho ball of
gayoty rolling, und that, in spite of the
many prognostications to the contrary
with which tho air is tilled, the execu
tive capital will bo as lively this winter
us it over litis been before Of course,
several rather hospitable houses will bo
closed, among others those of the
Barneys, Cumorons, Townsends, Tylers
und McT.anes, but in it city whero, like
Washington, tho social circle is by no
moans small or exclusive, no one Is
indispensable, and tho ubrionco from
tho ranks of four or flvo' entbrtniners
will not prove a vory great cidumlty.
The German embassy, too, looks as if
jt wero preparing to udd Kb quota of
guyoty, judging by tho magnificent
ball-room which I now. rapidly up-

sonal supervision of - Buron Sativum
himself, . . .
Tho Turner will case, n local eauso
colebre, after having been tried three
times, was finally decided in favor of the
Tumors. Dr. Turner, as everybody
knows, was not in u proper condition to
make a will for a long time before ho
died, and most people will conccdo that
his soiifl hud u bettor claim to his money
than tho associations to whom it is
alleged ho bequeathed it.
Twico recently has tho crying baby
'nuisance been exploited in the Lansing
theatre to tho manifest annoynnco of
(lie nudieiico ub well us tho people on
the stage. A couple of weeks ago when
Charles Dickson was doing an impres
sive scono iu "Misjudged," tho curtain
raifler for "Incog," at u moment when
the audience wiib wrought up to a high
tension und when tho actor hud every
thing coming his way, a child in the
parquet sot up a bawl that filled the
theatre and utterly distracted audience
and actors. Mr. Dickson wus visibly
annoyed. Ho made no attempt to go on
und demanded that tho child ho im
mediately removed. Somo people iu the
audience thought ho was unnecessarily
sharp; but tho provocation was vorj
great. As it was tho most effective
scene in tho play was spoiled. And tho
other night when "A Toxiib Steer" was
being presented, thero was a child pres
ent who mudo more noise than tho whole
company combined, and that is saying a
good deal. It wiib aggravating in tho
extreme. Babies aro undoubtedly tho
nicest things in tho world; but the
theatre isn't tho nlaco for them, and
parents who insist on bringing them to
tho thcatro ought to bo punished (o tho
fullest extent of the law.
Al Fairbrother was in tho city a few
days ngo. 'Way back in the palmy dujB
iu this state when journalistic genius
nourished liko u green buy treo; when
Fred Nye und Rothuekor in Oinuhu
and Walt Mason in this city gavo to tho
daily newspapers u brilliant hue that
they havo mover known since, Fair
brother was fairly entitled to a place
among Hiceo notable Bohemians. Ho
made tho Call a paper that people
liked to read. Three or four years ugo
ho married and moved to Durham, N.
C, where ho purchased the Globe and
in very short order lie achieved a fame
or notoriety that reached from ono end
of tho country to tho other. Fairbrother,
who was a westerner in Nebraska, be
came a southerner in North Carolina
and Lo discussed pensions and other
questions in u particularly unique man
ner. Fairbrother became as well known
in New York, by his rod hot stuff iu tho
Globe as ho used to bo iu Nebraska.
When ho departed from Lincoln the
writer sized him up us follows und what
was written then holds good today:
"Of marked individuality und pos
sessed of not a few cranky ideas, ho
makes and leaves un impression where
over liu goes. Rough and hairy, ex
ternally, he litis u warm heart und a
kindly disposition. His ferocity is only
skin deep. And his bruin it somewhat
erratic, is ample and strikingly original.
It is an active brain and tho dust of dis.
uso never clogs it. Mentally ho is some
thing of a cross betweon Walt Mason
and tho lute O. II. Rot hacker. While
lacking to somo extent tho pathos of tho
latter he has all of tho quaint humor of
the former, and his literary stylo par
takes somowliut of the nature of both.
Iu delicacy of expression lie does not
equal tho iinforttiiiuto Rothackcr. The
ideas he bus; but his pen's blunt nous
gives u peculiarly robust form to
his most pathetic work. A feature of
Fftirbiother's style is the western breezi
uess which is a part of everything ho
does. His cranium is chuck full of what
they call in tho east 'westernisms,' and
ho doesn't hesitate to draw from his
Btoro on every occasion."
Fairbrother was accompaiued on his
trip west by his wife, Thoy uro now
taking in the world's fair.
In a conversation with a Couiukk
representative Fuitbrothor expressed his
surprise thut Walt Mason should have
quit Washington where he wiib making a

A clever versifier once ground out u
string of vim-hob of a jocularly philoso
phical sort, beginning:
"Tim path that load In n lonf of bread,

A fid proceeded to moralize humor
ously on the Ell prutmRltion of "getting

was hat he who travels that goal ot
achjovoment called success, will have
many u stone brulso to bear him com
pany ii fact which has been hinted at
by philosopliersBovornl times since high
gritdo Greek intellcctuullsm wus llrst
put' on tho market. Thomas Q. Sou
broolte, the effervescent nttir comedian
of that effervescent entertainment, "The
Isle of Champagne," which will bo seen
at tho Lansing Monday night, is u case
In point. Ho httB had, perhaps, an much
experience (embracing till sorts of haul
knocks), in his twclvo years on tho stage
as is usually crowded Into that period of
lime. He has travelled tho corduio)
roads with backwoods companies, has
been, stranded in towns not on tho map,
has been held up by insolvent mauageis
for salary, has been forced to play villain
roles, juvenilo parts, and even "heaviei"
und, in short, has been knocked down,
figuratively sjieaklng, many and many a
time in his contest with circumstances.
But ho camo up smiling at each call of
"time," und his opponent, having become
somowliut groggy it good while ugo, hus
now thrown up tho sponge entirely.
Tho only murks left on tho talented
comedian by his hard fight, is a thinness
of front huir. Seen off tho stage ho im
presses you ns ono whoto character
tukes its color from intelligence und
energy. Ills face iu clean cut', the
feutqres regulur and ovonv.hundsomo,
tho eyes keen und quick; und un in
tellectual brightness gives animation to
its general expression. When jou have
talked with him five minutes you under

bundle of nervous energy, strong, tire
less und determined. Similarly equipped
any mun will, sooner or inter, gallop
briskly down tho avenue of success.
Mr. Seahrnoko is not quite thirty-two
yearB old. Ho is u native of New York
state, though that ought not to weigh
heavily against him, since hu wan en
tirely hlamelcRB in tho mutter. At the
ago ot eleven ho went into a bank, and
after nino years of desk work he had
become teller and unhealthy. So he
quit banking, and after giving his lungs
a chance on out of-doois air, concluded
to try tho stage. He began in the usual
way, as "un angel;" thut is, ho invented
some money .in a theatrical venture. It
fulled, of course. But this brought him
in touch with the people of stugeluud
and beforo ho knew it, ho was acting.
Being exceedingly modest ho began his
career in tho most diffident state in the
Union Rhode Island. But having
taken tho plunge, ho launched out like
u new racing yacht sliding off tho skids.
Beforo he had beon a year on the stage
he had been in three different com
panies, played a dozen or more roles and
been stranded over in Michigan.
Thin only whetted his appotito, and lie
returned to the chargo with renewed
vigor. In the next season ho disposed
of three mote companies, and with the
third mm made his first appearance in
Now York city. With un average of
three or four different engagements a
boiison, ho continued for four yearB more,
steadily going forward, though man
agerial ventures went to pieces. Dur
ing these six j ears ho was required, in
an emergency, to play it comedy part in
Philadelphia, and the discovery was
made that ho was a comedian. This
fact having boon demonstrated, of course
it wasn't long until llojt discovered
him. Theatro-goern remember Mr. Sou
brooko'n unctuous impersonation ot tho
plumber in "A Tin Soldier," which
marked his first appearance on Com
This wns six yea re ago. Having ouco
come out ot tho ruck, Mr. Scnbrooko
forged tu tho front liko a handicap
winner and, having been twico a star, is
now u star for himself. - It was his own
money that put on "The Isle of Cham
pagne," and it was largely his own
energy, seconded by his unquestionable
talent that inado it the remarkable sue
cess.it now is it success beside which
the best of comic opera hits with tho
most brilliant of comiu opera comedians
shines Ickh brightly.
