AN UNLUCKY TOSS.
8TORY .OF A
NEW YEAR'S GIFT
The Old Al:tt;r, "Thorn' Mnnj u l lp
liotnKt tho Cup mid tin. T.lp," Illm
trntiMl In tho Chic of i lit jctir mul
He wm :t tr.unp. A miserable, raggeel,
rum bodJeu apology for u man, without
ono redeeming feature. Ho had not
worked for ten years. Ills was a hang
dog appearance, and now and then ho
furtively glanced around as if expecting
a policeman to arrest him for living.
IIo btood in the postoffico corridor
and gazed out of :t window through the
daiknebs at Newspaper tow opposite,
and pondered. It was tho List day of
tho ye.tr. IIo hadn't n friend, but then
ho did not want one. All ho knew was
that ho was hungry, and his chronic
thirst conbumed him still.
Uo thought of the inotiuw. Tho now
year caused him no remorse for his wast
ed life. He never was of high estate, so
that his fall had not been mighty. He
wondered if he should go through tho
day, as ho had at Christmas, without a
dinner. Tho postoffico clock pointed to
11. Ho leaned on tho broad window sill
Through tho corridor from tho Broad
way side cuno brisk footbteps timed to a
cheery whistle. Our tramp roused him
self from his lpthargio gloom ;tnd looked
around. It was a young man, bright
and bieezy. Joy shono m his eyes. lie
may havo just received a letter from
Miranda; maybo ho had collected a bad
debt. Jloro ptobably ho had just made
a lucky fctnko on tho r.ice3. At all
events ho was happy. Ilia audience did
not appreciate this, however. IIo only
saw in tho well drcsssd chap a possible
victim. So mechanically ho stepped for
ward, held out a duty pa,w and mum
bled tho well vi ora refrain in which the
words "hunger bick wife live chil
dren" could bo distinguished.
Imagine his astonishment when tho
youngman paubed, attor a cursory glanco,
pulled out a coiu, handed it to tlio beg
gar, and was off still whittling. Tho re
cipient hurriod to the light to inspect his
treasuro; ho fairly gasped it was a dol
lar. IIo did not puisue the philanthropist
to put tho traditional emery, "Did you
mean to gi e mo tms- sir?' Not he! Out
of the postoffico ho ambled toward the
Bowery, that Mecca of all such as he, at
a faster gait than ho had known for many
A bhort distance beyond tho bridge a
thousht occurred to him. What should
he do with his money.' The sudden gleam
of para4Ko had scattered his wits. Un
decided, wavering, ho tat down on the
walk under a btreot lamp with his feet in
tho gutter and mined. Ho thought of
turkey, but tho word was a mockery he
had not tasted any for yeais. Ho now
sketched rapidly an ideal bill of faro;
bean soup, pork and beans, and yogodsl
Iilum pudding to top off! no figured
tho cost. Why, ho would havo enough
left to take him to a thcatto, and even to
bit dowu btairs, for once, liko a lord.
But now a disturbing thought ciept in.
Ho had forgotten something rum. His
programmo was accordingly amended by
tho substitution of rum for theatre.
But another question now aroso to per
plex him. Should ho cat first or drink
fint? IIo drew out tho precious money.
Now tho old (.porting instinct asserted
itself. Ho would lot chance decide, as
any gentleman should, Tho coin was to
pay tho bills, and it should guide his
choice. If head camo uppermost, tho
rum first; if tail, tho meal.
Up ho tosbod it, high and btraight;
down it camoin tho sumo path, but miss
ing tho outstretched palm it struck the
sidowalk on its milled edge. Impish,
glittering, oxultant.it rolled offthosido
walk into tho gutter, jumped two or
thrto little furrows of dirt, dodged an
old cigar btumpand disappeared into tho
wiwoi nt tho corner.
"Come, move on out o' that," said a
policeman an ho whacked bin club close
to thulium on tho curb. New York Sun.

The manager of the "social agency," for
smh ho called his establishment, was
fornd occtipj ing an office in one of the
tall biiildingb, and explained that the
geneial imipose of his business was tho
leaving of calling cards, thereby earing
soi iety people the trouble of doing this
work themselves. "Ordinarily," he said,
"1 employ half a dozen carriages and an
equal number of footmen. I can save a
lady tho trouble of driving around and
leaving her card by doing the work for
hei, and if you want nnj thing done that
way I would be pleased to serve you. My
charges are model ate."
"What do you charge';"
"My tegular rates aro $1 per 100 cards
left, but 1 make a reduction for heavy
"How do you manage to do tho work
"Why, by leaving cards for a large
number of ladies with one trip, where
se oral hundred would be required it it
were done by Iho ladies themselves."
"What are j our special features for
Ne vv Year'iir"
"That, of course, is our biggest day,
nut only from the number of calls that
