HE RODE FOR NOTHING.
A Suiooth-Fnced aiiin Who Know n Thine
From tho Chicago Times.
"I have not failed to rido dowu town on a
North Side grip car free of charge for a week,"
said a smooth-faced, dapper young man to those
who stood with him on the corner of Clark and
Centre streets waiting to get aboard a car.
"That so? Tell us how you do it, and we will
work the snap, too," said his listeners in the
"Well, it's this way: There are always a lot
of people on the corner waiting for a car, and
while tho conductor is helping the women on
I jump aboard in front and take a scat insido.
Then I pull out a paper and become intent on
the news. Tho gripman, nine times out of ten,
is busy fixing his tension screw or watching tho
track ahead, and pays no attention to me.
AVhen the conductor comes through tho car for
his fares I never look up and ho has doubts
about me, but usually, after a hard stare at me,
his memory gives out and ho passes on."
"Don't believe it warks moro'n ono time in a
hundred," Bald ono of tho listeners.
"liet you five dollars I can do it on tho ride
down town," promptly responded tho smooth
"It's a go," said his companion.
Tho money s put in the hands of tho other
member of tho party, and tho trio prepared to
board a car. Hut for some reason tho llrst limits
car that, camo along did not appear to suit tho
free-ride man, and there being littlo room in it
ho had an excuso to wait for tlio next ono. This
was at Lincoln avenue and ho directed his
friends to got aboard on tho rear platform while
ho gained entrance in front, as ho had ex
plained. Sitting down about tho centre of tho
car, ho pulled a paper from his pocket and be
gan reading with great iutentness. His friends
secured seats near him and watched tho pro
ceedings. The conductor went through to tho front and
collected a faro, then on to the two friends, got
his nickels, gavo an old lady change for a
Quarter in pennies, refused to accept a Canu
!an dime from a fashionably dressed young
woman, and passed out without so much as a
glance in tho direction of our reading friend.
Just as he was opposite him, however, tho dili
gent reader rustled his paper vigorously, quite
like a mau whose sole thought was to find tho
editorial column or tho funny paragraphs.
When tho threo arrived at Washington street
they alighted and sought tho seclusion of a
saloon to pay tho stakes,
"Pretty uood scheme. I'll work It myself,"
said tho ono who had lost his V.
"Yes, it's easy when you know how," replied
tho winner as ho pocketed his $10. Then ho
left, and in another minute was at tho tunnel
entiance, whom ho caught tho samo car that ho
had camo down on. "I had great luck that
time, Jirninie," said he, as he handed tho con
The Cold Air Box of tho Furnuuc.
From tho N. Y. Tribune.
When a furnace of a good make, which is to
all outward appearance In good order, refuses
to give out any heat, it is always wise to oxam
iue tho cold-air box. It it opens, as it too often
does, in the kitchen or basemeut hall or cellar,
the heater can never bo depended upou, as a
plcutlful supply of cold outside air Is necessary
to push up tho heated air. Kven when there Is
a good cold-air box opening out doors it should
be occasionally examined, as rats and oven
chickens have been known to 6eek shelter and
die in such a place. For this reason tho cold
air box should always bo arranged so it can bo
exainiued, If possible, Its entire length.

FOR THE BEST
A Cure for Ingrowing Toe Nails.
"About ten years ago I cured ingrowing nails
on both of myblgtoeslnthofollowlngmannor,"
writes a correspondent of tho Scientific Ameri
can, "which can bo done by any ono who has
tho least amount of ingenuity and patience:
First thoroughly clean tho parts, and then pack
In front of tho nail cotton or lint as hard as may
bo borne. This will remain with comfort for
three or four days, then remove and in front of
the pellet will ' be found a hardened mass of
liesh; scrape this away and repack, continuing
tho operation until tho corner of tho nail has
grown out and Is beyond tho soft tissues of tho
toe. Of course easy-fitting 6hoes or boots should
bo worn during the treatment and ever after."
