DIDN'T FAT HIS FARE.
Ho Saved Much by Never Paying
Oar Kara if Ho Could Holp It.
Ii a Into nutnbor of tbo Atlantic
n uionibwr of tho Contributor's club
confessed to Him (tract ico of choatiug
street car conductors whenever tha i
opportunity was presented. Mote
over, this writer did not rely solely
on tho carelessness of tho conduc
tor, but by tho cultivation of an in
nuiM'iit air, a "tony vacuity of (;z
wlmu the conductor wandered
through the car, managed to rido
free uiauy tiuuu when the common.
o.t decency would havo stiggesto 1
tho offering of tho faro.
The perusal of this eoufosiion of
tho contributor to the Atlantic filloJ
Mr. Fulsby's small soul with calm
content, llo himself had wasted
the greater part of his mature years
iu tho biuincs of cheating tho
street railway out of tho fares law
fully owing to it. llo had often
boasted of his succesr, much to the
horror of every other man aud wo
man at tho table Aud, says tho
I3utTalo Courier, the more horrified
they woro tho more he gloried in his
deeds which, while they could not
be called peculations, yet amounted
to the same thing, being in tho
nature of embezzlement.
Mr. Fulsby often tol 1 tho story of
his downfall the origin of his cri
minal career--as n jutification of
all which followed. Ono day, years
and years ago, while tho horse was
still the tnotivo power on tho Nia
gara street line, Mr. Fulsby boarded
a car at Main street to rido to Am
herst street. It was ono of tho cold
est days of an extremely cold winter.
Ho paid lm fare, as his custom w.-n.
Passengers got on and off, and at
length tho car had passed Porter
avenue. Tho conductor here enter
ed and demauded Mr Fulsby's faro.
Ho insisted that ho had paid it.
Tho conductor vowed ho had not.
"I'll not pay you twice," said Mr.
"Then 111 put you off."
1 t "Well, you havo to put mo off, but
it will bo tho worso for you."
Just past tho turn at the car barns
tho conductor assisted Mr. Fulsby
to alight. Ho made no great resist
ance, although ho felt enraged. Ho
had but a nickel in his pocket, and
ho needed that for his return to
Main Btreot. Ho was forced to inako
tho romainder of his journey to
Amherst street afoot, in tho midst
of a blizzard aud some 'M degrees of
' From that hour Mr. Fulsby sworo
implacable and relentless warfare
on tbo Buffalo Street railway. Ho
would use every means iu his power
to evade paying his fare, and when
over ho liad a chauce ho would ring
. up faros on tho register. This reso
lution, made years ago, ho has kept
steadfastly to this very hour. Form
erly ho wa3 a groat pedestrian aud
novor rode to or from his business
unless compelled by urgent hasto.
But his success iu obtaining froo
carriauo has somewhat abated his
enthusiasm for a good walk at morn
ing aud night. Besides, he is get
ting on in years, aud ho inclines to
riding more than formerly, while his
wits aro growing sharper every year
in tho practice of out-facing suspi
cious conductors. Nothing more de
lights him than to observo ono of
those puzzled officials, after count
ing his passongors aud theu his
fares, approach au old geutlomau or
' au innocent damo aud aak for a fare,
, only to bo sent about his business
, with a sharp reprimand for daring
i to ask twice for his money' Ho has
i found that tho countenance can bo
made to assume au expression which
says quite as plainly as words: "I
I havo paid; nothing need bother mo
now until l got out." ,
Conductors aro closo students of i
, physiognomy and can almost always !
' tell by tho expectant look on a pas-1
I seuger's face that ho is waiting to bo
approached. Mr. Fulsby lias learn-
I ou better. To bo sure, ho has to pay
somotiiuo3, when ho is ono of two or
tbroo passengers. But ho simply
, revels in tho crowded 8:30 o'clock
car in tbo morning, tho packed 0
o'clock iu tho evening, tho dowu
i town theatro oar at 8 again, and tho
I roturning car at 11 o'clock. Ho has
evou reached that skill that ho often
outwits a conductor oven when ho
has a young lady with him and
that ho is no easy trick. Mr. Fulsby
says that ho saves most in summer
by boarding open cars while thoy
are in motion. Ho slides into a sent,
opous a paper, aud within a moment
looks as if ho had been on tho car
for half an hour. Ho thinks that
he saves, on the averago, a faro for
every four rides that ho takes, and
tho sum ho has saved siuro tho bleak
day whou ho was put off a Niagara
street car he estimates at about $.10,

I gave up my seat and sho said "No,
In a tone that was positively gall-

I seized four straps to keep from
