-ho "Would -Not Part "With Her Auto
grauhs of the Oreat Author.
It was worth while receiving a compli
ment from Dickens, because it was turned
with art. I know of one note in this coun
try so felicitous in expression as to deserve
publicity. It was addressed to a young
girl who had been a constant attendant on
'lis readings, which were to her a dramatic
-evelation. Going up tho Fteps of Stcin--vay
hall, New York, on the occasion of
Dickens' New Year's eve reading, this girl
was met by a friend who stopped her, say
ng, "I've a message for you from the
:hief." Dickens was always called "the
mief" by his intimate friends. "I asked
Mm if he saw you in the audience. 'See
nerl' replied Dickens: 'yes, God bless her!
?he's the best audience I ever had.' "
"And I've a message for Mr. Dickens,"
answered the delighted girl. "Whereupon
she drew forth a basket of violets which
graced the reader's desk during tho even
ing, and elicited the following response:
My Dear Mns Field I entreat ywi to accept
ivy most cordial thanks for your charming; New
Tear's present. If you could knotv what pleasure
X yielded me you would be repaid for your deli
site and sympathetic kindness.
But I must avow that nothing In the pretty
'jasket of flowers was quite so interesting to me
ts a certain bright, fresh faca I have seen at my
readings, which. I am toM. you may see, tea
when you look in the class! Cordially yours.
Not long afterward, on being introduced
to "Boz," tbis same girl exclaimed, "Ah,
Mr. Dickens, I owe you so heavy a debt of
gratitude as to be unable to pay even the
interest on it!"
"I'll give yon a receipt in full," was
Dickens' quick response, and underneath
a very ferocious engraving of himself he
"Received of Miss Kate Field all the
thanks she owes me nd many more, with
which I ant letter pleased than I appear to
be in the above gloomy presentment of my
swte of minL Charles Dickens."
I wouldn't part with these autographs

Did you ever see a cockroach and ily
fight? No? Well, I saw one in which the
roach came out victorious after six rounds.
Whether it waa Marquis of Queensberrj
rules or not I could not say. The ring was
on the oiled counter of an uptown office.
A festive fly alighted upon the counter and
disported itself as any well regulated fly
usually does. An active young roach saw
his flyship and immediately gave battle.
The fly threw out his left duke and
caught the bug squarely on the head, daz
ag the bug for a moment, but he returned
:o the attack smiling, and with a right
iand upper cut landed on the left eye of
.he fly, causing tha latter to whirl com
pletely around a dozen times. A clerk
present thought it a knock out blow, but
he fly recovered his equilibrium at the
?all of "time" and rushed fiercely at his
opponent, with an evident determination
,o "do him up" instanter. But the roach's
superior ducking tactics gave him an ad
vantage, and he vigorously shot out his
-ight, knocking the fly clean off his pins
ind setting him into another revolving
The fly returned gamely to tho attack
four times more, nnd was finally put to
sleep in the sixth bout. The roach then
walked off triumphantly to his den, rear
ing up on his hind feet, as much as to say,
"Oh, didn't I do him!" New York Tele
gram. A Bravo Chinaman.
E. D. Cahota is a native born Chinaman.
He has lived in this country nearly forty
years, having left the land of his birth
when but 6 years old. Long before the
Chinese exclusion law was drontof he
had proved his fitness for thq 'uties of
American citizenship by taking p arms
In defense of his adopted country and
marching to the front.
Although but 13 years old when the war
broke out he declared that he was over
age, and enlisted in the Twenty-third Mas
sachusetts volunteers, under command of
Col. Andrew Ellwood the only represent
ative among the Mongolian race among the
millions of men thus facing each other in
a struggle for life and death. Cahota was
an uniquo character. Under fire Cahota
proved that he was made of the stern stuff,
for his bravery was commented on during
various engagements, notably at Cold Etar
bor and in the building of Gen. Butler's
signal station in front of Petersburg.
At the close of the war Cahota was mus
tered out along with the survivors of his
regiment, then under command of Col.
Raymond, of Marblehead. Since that
time Mr. Cahota has devoted himself to
business, there being little in common be
tween him and tho ordinary Chinaman be
yond certain race characteristics of feature.
In speech and dress he is an ordinary citi

Uncts About the Silktlndustry.
The silk industry of America has grown
into considerable proportions. Begun as
an experiment twenty-five years ago, it
now occupies 700 establishments, gives em
ployment to 50,000 persons and yields a
yearly product of the value of $60,000,000.
Our silk making is confined almost ex
clusively to sttple goods. The high grade
fabrics will pr bably continue to bo made
nbroad on accoant of the special aptitudo
of the Lyons, France, cheap skilled hand
labor; but for tho production of staples tho
American manufacturer has the best ma
chinery in the world. The growth of the
industry in recent years is shown by the
following figures: In 1SS2 domestic 6ilks
were produced to the value of $33,102,020,
as against $37,937,051 in imported silks. In
1SS9 domestics were 5S,668,780, as against

It has been found difficult to get the cor
rect Eounding9 of the Atlantic A mid
bhipraan of the navy overcame the diffi
culty, and shot weighing thirty pounds
carries down the line. A hole Is bored
through tho sinker, through which a rod
of iron is passed, moving easily back and
forth. In the end of the bar a cup is dug
out and the inside coated with lard. The
bar is made fast to the line and a sling
holds the shot on.
When the bar, which extends below tho
ball, touches the earth the sling unhooks
and tho shot slides off. The lard in tho
end of the bar holds some of the sand, or
whatever may be on the bottom, and a
drop shuts over the cup to keep the sand
in. When the ground is reached a shock
is felt, as if an electric current had passed
through the line. Ocean.
He TTas No Idiot.
Cheery John Maclean made his first ap
pearance in London at the Surrey some
where about 1S61 as Peter Purcell in
"The Idiot of the Mountain." Shepherd
and Creswick were the managers of the
theatre then, and Maclean was standing
one day at Rockley's, when a kind friend
pointed out the newly engaged actor to
Shepherd, who, having been ill, had not
yet seen him.
"You're playing in my theatre, Mr.
Maclean?" Shepherd bawled. "I'm play
ing in 'The Idiot of the Mountain,' sir,"
Maclean replied half timidly. "Glad to
hear it, sir: glad to hear it!" Shepherd ex
claimed; "you're not the idiot, surely?"
"No, sir," Maclean answered with a seri
ous face, "the manager who engaged me is
the idiot. "San Francisco Argonaut.
Dclloioua Indian Tea.
As you near Darjeeling you find many
of the bard woods of our American mount
ains, the rose begins to bloom, and there
are tea plantations by the hundreds of
acres. The tea of the Himalayas is the
best in the world, and I would advise
American housekeepers to try the Indian
tea. There is a tea in Thibet which has
the flavor of milk to such a degree that
when used it has all the properties of good
tea mixed with the most delicious of Jer
sey cream. This Himalayan tea has the
flavor of flowers. It is pure and clear, and
it is supplanting the Chinese tea in the
English markets. Frank G. Carpenter's
I've heard a good many explanations of
the term "pin money," as applied to the pe
riodical dole given by husbands to their
wives, but nobody yet has hit on. a theory
I have long cherished.
What is that?
The place where a woman's pins are al
ways put for safe keeping while she is get
ting ready to u.e them is her mouth. Do
you see the logic? The more pins the less
talk. So an ancient trick has passed, as it
were, into a proverb. Kate Field's Washington-Ancient

The wagon dwellers of New York Utb
along the Bowery and in the dark streets
of tho east side.
Walking up Park row toward tho Bow
ery at 2 in the morning the first wagons a
reporter saw were in front of a big furni
ture store. Every night from two to four
big: trucks stand iu front of the place,
which may be termed tha headquarters of
In the first wapon were three dwellers.
Two lay side by side with their heads to
ward the dashboard, and the other sleeper
was curled up crosswise at the bottom.
Ho was a genuine tramp, with a short
beard and out at the toes.
Wrapped about his shoulders was a
woman's ragged woolen cloak. Ho xnoTcd
uneasily as the reporter mounted the seat,
and finally roanagvd to raise himself up
and attempted to climb over the back
board. "Don't disturb yourself, ruT'nor," said
the reporter. 'Tm not going to run yo
in. Why don't you go home?"
"Who's 'atr' inquired the wagon dwell,
er. "Who are yer. anyway? If yer a cop

He then turned his attention to the bot
tom of the ragon, and having slccVd tha
softest spot rollod over on his side and be
gan to snore.
A POUCEMAN ArPKARS.
The reporter was about to leave the
wagon when a policeman caxue walking
stowly by nnd noticed him standing there.
The policeman abo heard the snoring of
tiie nieepers within.
Without a word ho wound the string of
his night dub around his wrist, jumped
nimbly on the hub of tho wheel and then
into the trvek. With three sharp nnd well
directed blows he canght the sleepers on
tho solos of their shoes, and put them on
their fees in an instant.
"What do you think this is, a lodging
howef" he asked.
There wm no reply, hut each man mado
a Urely scramble (or the pavement.
Just above Chat bum aquare stood two
butcher wagons, partially hldtkn by tho
shadows of the derated road.
The reporter jumped on the sent of tha
firat one, aad there, sleeping soundly, al
most under him, were two little fellows,
neither of whom coald have Veen mora
than 13 yeirs old. They were drracd in
knickerbockers md one of them was bare
footed. Their faces were stained with
dirt, and one rested bis head on a bundle
ot evening newspapers. Their arms were
kicked and they could not havo been rest

They had simply ended the day with too
little money to buy their night's lodging
in the Newsboys' home, and so had dona
the next best thing.
It would indeed bo a hard hearted po
licernna who would disturb thrm, for at 3
o'clock, king beore the trucks are wanted,
they will bo down in Ncwspnpor row.
RE BAD A BOMS ONCE.
Along tbe side of the wogon, almcwt
touching the boy the reporter saw
young man trying Lard to nleep. Th
night wm chilly, and us his clothes wero
skreadbars be ehivercd violently every few
moraents, and then after each convulsion
thrust his hand further into his pockets.
His face had traces of rcflnemani, and it
conkl easily be Men that ho hod not been
adrift in the streets long.
Jul tho reporuir tftood looking at him he
opened hU eyes.
"What is UF" ho asked with n shudder,
as he tried to pull himself toguther.
"Nothing at all," replied tho reporter.
"Why don't you go homo?"
A vrhtiezy lanflh cust from tha young
For a moment he snrvpypd the leportor
critically, and evidently coming to the
conclusion that he tzeurit no harm said:
"My boy, I did have a homo with a good
mother at the head of It. liut I used to
go out with the gang aud go ) otue when I
couldn't go anywhere eko. If I bad n
home now there wouldn't be any other
place you could drag me too, sco?"
The boars gathered in his oyc, and hU
husky voice broke into a sob.
"Bat, young fellow," bo continued, "I
wouldn't 'a' fjoke of that only you asked
me why I didn't go borne. I don't want to
impose on you, but if you've got a spare
dime can I have it?
"Thanks, purdner. I hope you'll never
come to this."
The reporter continued his walk tip thu
Bowery, and wan about to climb into a big
fnrniturc truck near Cnnal strrt, when an
oilioer cams walking slowly along and got
ah end of him. Two other policeman in
citiseav' clothes aocompAtiiM him.
COME ARE AJUUttiTZD.
The officer jumped on a whsel and
rammed his long club around in the truek
as if be wero hunting rata. In an instant
the heads of two men appeared above the
edge, and in response to the summons
Jumped out and were at once taken charge
of by tbe officers. Not on of them uttered
a word, but accepted the arrest as a mat
ter of course. But thwrt was a third rnau
in the truck, and be was dragged out Itki

When he realized that h had bn ar

Ths policemen then went to Uie next
