Close behind this poor old creature como
two children with their protty French maid.
Surely no ono could find fault with thorn.

ny feet, her black silk socks Blowly slipping
' 'down over tho soft, flat, solid Bhoes. A dear
, little grandmother coat of brown cloth al-
most covers her simple whito dress, while
coat, dress, fat legs, baby and all aro almost
concealed by the bigt wavering Leghorn hat,
bo simply trimmed with daisies, that is laid
J bn the yellow head.
' The boy is as much of a little man as his
sister is of a baby. He wears low patent
leather shoes, which only occasionally show
themselves from beneath the wide-legged
blue sailor trousers in which his small legs
nro completely lost. Over whatever waist ho
may wear is a blue chinchilla reefer, with
1 pockets, in which, it need bo said, are a pair
of fat fists. On his cropped head is a Tarpau
lin, on tho ribbon of which is Btampod', with

The maid is as picturesque in her way as
her charges. Sho wears a simple dress of
black, wide, turned-back white collar and
cuffs and a long black-silk apron. Her cap
is also of black silk, mob-shaped, with long
ties reaching half tho length of her skirt.
Considering that the maid is a pretty " Mam'
zelle," with a delightful complexion and
ruddy hair, the glances in her direction aro
not to bo wondered at.

Blngley Is a bashful man when ladles are around.
He was walking down Fourth avenue the other
morning after the rain and It was very muddy.
People on foot had worn a single crossing file
over a side street that was fairly dry, and Blngley
came up Just as two ladles were on the point of
crossing. The older ono behind stopped to hitch up
her dress a trifle to avoid the mud, and Blngley
followed close behind the younger'and pretty one,
who thought her companion was still following
her. UlnRley, who la a bachelor, noticed her trim
figure, the neatness of her dress and hair with
pleasure. Bat what was his horror after the street
was crossed to see her turn half round and hear
her lnqulro In a matter-of-fact tone, "Could you
see raj red stockings 1"' fllnsley stammered some
thing and made a wild dash down the side street,
and the girl, covered with confusion, continued on
her course with her amused companion.
Back From Ilia Uncle's.
When early spring stole softly to thls'shore,
I gave to thee a very glad farewell ;
I vowed that I would see thee nevermore,

Ah, broken pride I Bttll on thee must I dote ;

Lovo again! why, he loved Rosy; if he
could lovo again why could notThaddeus
have loved again after Mary had broken with
him? Had Thaddous loved his wife? The
question startled her ; she had never asked
it since she had known that ho had loved
Mary. Sho frowned tho answer away now.
At any rate Rosy would see John a happy
husband and father. Had Mary seen Thad
deus a happy husband and father ? Mary
had known that Thaddous, wftRnHPhappy in
his home lifo, that his wife drovo him forth
to death she must have known it.
And Rosy she wished Rosy would not be
so quiet; she relied upon Rosy more than she
cared to acknowledge. Rosy, her only
child, her all.
The sewing dropped from her hands. The
new farm-hand wan on the porch, not Rosy.
" Tho like o' youens is always worryin'

I'm from there. Ho come thero two months

his mind, was out of his head. Ho talked in
his fever ; ho'd ask a girl to have him, and
tho girl's mother wouldn't hear of it. He
come West, sick ; I found him near my ranoh
and I took him in. He got better and wrote
a lotter to the girl and got me to toko it to
the mail. I saw the girl's name on tho en
velope. I pretendedthe South-East wanted

" You hired wi' me an spied on me till you

sow her do it ? Then take that for an answer
to John Croll that sho destroyed his letter.
That's all. Go!"
She had risen to her feet, and with extended
arm pointed to the road. He stood his
ground. . ,.

he said, ''death."

CAR STABLE HORSE DOCTORS.
Valuable .lien to the Itnllrond Companies
and They havo Plenty to Do.
It may not bo generally known that every
largo car stablo in this city has its regularly
employed veterinary department, whoso duty
it 1b to attend to all ailments and mishaps of
the horses, and who havo by no moons an
cosy time of it. In fact, tho hospital ward, as
it is called by the drivers and Btablomen, is
usually pretty woll filled up with disabled
animals and tho horso dootor has his hands
full of responsibility. One of the largest
stables in tho city is that of tho Third Avenuo
lino at Sixty-seventh street. The avorago
number of horses kept in that stablo is about
seventeen hundred. It is well known that a
horse could bo put to no moro racking and
wearing work than dragging horso cars, cspo.
daily over so long and tedious a route as tho
Third avenue. For this reason the number
of disabled horses on this lino is always vory
Tho large hospital room, which is con.
nccted with tho station, is always well filled
with equino patients, and aocording to tho
veterinarian of the lino, tho number is gen
erally in tho neighborhood of one hundred
and fifty. The troubles of tho animals prin
cipally ariso from strains and wronches
which thoy receive in pounding over tho
cobblestones, and they ore vory seldom dis.
abled by Biokness or diseaso. Occasionally
thoy get overheatod in the summor, and that
necessitates laying them off for a few days
or weeks, but usually their feet and legs give
out, thoir muscles got puffed up and stiff,
and then thoy are at once sent to the hos
pital. Somolimcs, too, it is owing to care
lessness or oruelty of drivers that a horso is
Whonever an animal is found to bo injured
in any way ho is at onco put on the sick list
and turned ovor to tho doctor. If ho is a
young horso and has not been hammered and
pounded too much a few days, or a wook at
tho most, will put him in condition again.
However, if after a few experiences of this
kind it is found that he cannot be brought
around so easily by poultices and plasters,
and oventually the joints begin to stiffen and
swell up and he is pronounced unfit for fur
ther car work and is turnod over to tho sales
Btables. Tho average period of usefulness of tho
car-horse is about three years. A few ex
traordinarily tough brutes can stand it ten or
twolve years. In fact, thoy have a horse now
in tho sorvico of tho Third Avonuo Company
which has survived that time. His name is
Billy, and ho is on old white horse. He
does not look by any means as broken down
as a great many of nis younger companions.
In car pulling, as in a variety of other pur
suits in lifo, it is evident that a good deal de
pends on the way it is done, ana Uncle Billy
seems to have discovered how to do it with
out undergoing tho usual physical risks that
are popularly supposed to be unavoidable in
this occupation. Not a few horses, however,
wear out within six months after they have
been put on the road, and must be sola again
for country work.
It is the province of the veterinary surgeon
to decide when horses are laid up whether
they shall bo returned to work again after
being patched up, or whether they are too
far gone to bothor with. In every case ho
decides in favor of the horse, because the
company is very particular with regard to its
live Btook, and it would not do to show any
lame or broken-down horses on the street.
When a horse is no more use to the com.
pany. as has been said, it is sold. The prices
usually brought are from $25 to $85 apiece.

"Woman!" he cried, helplessly, "havo

ately, " I did come for somethin' else beside
the love of a young woman and a young man;
I came for the sake of old times. I had tried
to forget tho old times the old miserable

Ab aho had driven him forth twenty years ago,
so she drove him forth now.
But he was older now, could not bear it so
easily, and his child was in grief which he
could not assuage, and in her mother's heart
was no lovo for God or man. Ho stumblod

S0NQ8 FORA CENT.
How the Pabllo Geta Ita Cheap Mualo Tha
Fopnlar Sons of the Seaaou.
At two or threo street corners in New York
llttlo sheets of paper flutter in tho air with
printing on them that looks like poetry.
Thoy aro songs, nt a cent apleco. Somo aro
classical, many wero dear to tho cars of past
fenerations, others aro " revival " airs, negro
ditties aro numerous, a great numbor aro
lovo songs and there is a olass, with titles full
of filial devotion, which may bo styled
" mother " songs.
Oue or two small rooms in Park Row furnish
thoui to tho wholo country. In 1H79 thoy wero
printed with n hand press, but tho next year
a steam printing press was ummI. As fast as n
song runs out a now edition of 1,200 copies is
printed from n sterootype plate.
Most of tho Bongs are copyrighted, but tho
publishers aro willing that tlio I'ark row
place should issue all the cent reprints it can.
In the first place, printing tho words in this
cheap way increases the demand for tho song
with the niusio. Then tho publisher of tho
cent Bheets sells tho words with tho muaio
for tho unvarying prico of 40 cents. He
buys them of tho other publishers nt prices
ranging from 80 conts to CO. All tho cent ro
prints aro copyrightod.
' Two pale-faced girls came into tho room in
Park row, yesterday. Thoy wore about
fifteen years of ago. " Have you got ' Our
Good Ship Bails To-night?'" asked ono of
them. She bought two copies of it, and two
of " Her Own Boy, Jaok."
"I'd liko 'I'm Waltin' My Lovo's Re
turn,' " said the other. Thoy paid their five
cents and went out happy.
"What is tho most popular song you
" Tho Old Folks at Homo," was the prompt
reply. " It como out thirty years ago, and
has sold steadily ever siuco. We aro printing
new editions of it all the time."
" What are some other favorite songs ? "
" Love songs always sell well. ' Good-bye,
My Lovo, Good-byo,' is ono of tho most
popular. ' The Dying Girl's Messago ' goes
well too. All the Mother ' songs catch on
every time. Thero aro no less than fifty
1 Mother ' songs in tho publisher's stock."
Some of this year's crop of cent songs are:
" White Wings " The Lettor that Never
Came," " Crioket on tho Hearth " and "Since
My Mother's Dead and Gone."
Popular songs are set to a tuno that is not
only catching but easily caught. Feoplo
hear them at tho theatre, find themselves
humming them afterwards, wish they had
the words to that song, see It Bomewhuro for
a cent nnd buy it. After a few demands for
some particular song, tho publisher sees that
it has taken and prints it.
Businoss housoB buy thousands of the pop
ular cant songs, print an advertisement on
the blank side, and distribute thorn gratui
tously. It pays. People keep the song,
advertisement and all.
Larger shoets are printed with six or eight
songs for two conts. But theso do not take
as well. Tho sheet is too large. After flag

with words, the cent songs are now looking

spanlelB and pugs and poodles are going In
for animals of an entirely different stripe.
" Fox-terriers aro not particularly good
natured dogs, but they have tho advantage of
being aristocratic, which makes up for a great
many unpleasnt things about them, and then
too they aro fashionable. They began to get
popular about two years ago and now thero
is no doubt that they are away ahead of all
other pet dogs. You can't get a good fox
terrier under $25 and they sometimes sell as
high as $1,000, especially imported breeds.

Sorted. You seo ho has the shaggy rough
air. Well, that dog couldn't bo bought for
$700. Most of the fox-terriers you see in this
country, however, are domestic."
"How about bull.terriers ? Oh, they are
always just about so popular, and thero is
always a good market for them. Tho kind
that tho ladies like are very small, weighing
only from threo to six pounds, and they cost
$50 apiece and upward. They are very
gentle dogs and will give their mistresses
very llttlo trouble if they are properly
brought up. Yorkshires aud silver Scotches
are nlco pet dogs, but we do not sell as ninny
of them as we do of the ones just mentioned.
Tho other day I sold one of the finest York,
shires I ever saw for $100. She weighed only
fivo pounds and her Lair was 22 Inches long,
which is something quitp unprecedented. A
purebred silver Scotch will fetch anywhere
from $200 up.

attempt to make a business of murder. Suicide
and not homicide was contemplated, however.and
the man had no Idea of being a criminal. A Wla

which the meana of killing ono'a aelf comfortably
and quickly was offered at 110. The singular
operator aald that he believed in sulcldo as a
surcease of aorrow and that he had long deplored
the cruel, painful methods commonly employed.
Drowning, shooting, stabbing and most
polaona wero denounced by him as barbarous
expedients. He was a chemist, he aald, and he
had inada a study of the subject of suicide. He
could guarantee that his customers would, If they
desired, take their own lives without a shadow of
uncertainty or a single twinge of suffering. This
knowledge he wsb willing tu mall confidentially

until lately he waa employed In a pharmacy, where
his skill and reliability were not questioned. Ho

Found Out Two Dnja Later. ? H
Mr. Denis Sullivan is a well-known Demo. H
crnt and Grand Army man of the Thirteenth ''
Ward. He has a saloon on the east sido ' 'jB
where he serves crullers and pigs' feet for is JsjBI
free lunch. Down at Liberty Island he aH
swells out as a caterer under the shadow of v&l
the Goddess of Liberty. Mr, Sullivan is 3eS
small of size, has a neat, trim figure and JoH
sports a watch chain that emulates the . OjH
Brooklyn Bridgo cables. Several days ago ' HH
Mr. Sullivan journeyed to Philadelphia to '39
meet some old soldier friends. He started ,4-s5HH
on his return home. Ho fell asleep in tho QasM
cars and was suddenly awakened by feeling a PwBM
hand in his trousers' pocket,where a fat pock- tWt
ctbook was snugly bid away. Mr. Sullivan's "tylM
teeth wero at work the next moment at a fist ..JjHH
and the other passengers were treated to "' ''vBH
howls of pain from the man who owned tho '.'?BH
Then everybody in the cor got tangled '1,'Efl
up, and whon the brakeinan had straight- 'LH
jned things out a little Mr. Sullivan &flMM
vowed that the man who sat next to him had v3rMM
attempted to rob him. The latter denied the VEH
accusation and said ho would have Mr. Sulll- "''JtVmfl
van arrccted for mayhem when the train or- 'tftSmma
rived in Jersey City. Mr. Sullivan began iiijBE
thinkinr He knew that ho had had attacks ''$Bzml

" I wonder," ho cogitated, " if I dreamed ''umEv
that the fellow had his hands in my pooket, ISsEml

ness if I picked up the paw of an innocent trcH
fellow passenger and began to bite it. Guess MftLES
the best tbiug I can do is to disappear from 'tfBmfl
tho train when it slows up at Newark." r JH
Mr. Sullivan carried out this idea while the :'
stranger was allowing ice-water to drip on mJeEmV
his lacerated hand. Mr. Sullivan remained .&BkX
in Newark for two days and communicated 4Smml
with his friends by wire. Several of them Eml
went to Newark to seo him, and finally per- 1?Eml
suaded him to continue his homeward trip. ,9H
Arriving at Jersev City Mr. Sullivan and his SisSml

there a detective recognized Mr. Sullivan, 'vO

theatre receives eo to 10 per cent, of the gross ,
receipts. Thus, It a company does not take In aa gfrB

Many combination do not receive the half
