There wus tho ingenious young shaver who
invariably exhorts you to buy his last paper,
"'Cause, boss, I'm stuck;" there was tho
tallrond cherub, who treads on your pot corn
in the street cars and thinks you ought to
apologize to him for it ; there was tho con
sidcrnto youth who awakens you from a stroet
reverie with the shrill, awful announcement
of some hideous catastrophe, and there was
tho tiny young vender who persists in follow
iug you till you buy from him.
It was a study to watch theso uowsboys. n
study which it was a privilege to make. Tho
piny they saw w as Sim's and l'ettitt's " liar

their midst when Kingsley told Dora that he
hod carried her little wedding-ring all round
tho world to remind him of her.
" Ah." said Dora, poutingly, "aro you sure
vnu didn't carry the ring round tho world so
that you might find some one else to wear
it?" That repartee convulsed the newsboys.
They cheered Dora. They cheered Kingsley.
They were completely captured.

Thoy understood everything. That little

everyone knows that a good audicuao exerts

Helen Weathcrsby cast many glances at the

This gloomy looking littlo dog, further
dowu in this column, is sad becauso ho is not
so popular as ho was.
" Tho reason why
fpugs aro going out of
favor," a dog fancier
said yesterday, " I s
that they have become
too common. T h o
crazo for thoso ugly
- dugs was pructically
run, into tho ground
when it first becamo a
fad with tho Indies to keep them as pots. As
everybody knows they aro tho stupidebt and
least interesting intellectually of any dogs in
the world, and it was only a question of. time
when tho crazo for them would dio out, for
peoplo wero bound to get tired of them. Of
course thoso who have them already prob.
ably feel enough affection for them to keep
them, but other people aro not buying them
by any means, and dog.dealers who aro right
at tho pulso of tho market know very well
that it is not likely to prove a profitable un.
dertaking to try to sell a lot of pugs, at least
in this city."
Another dog which has gouo completely
out of fashion in lato years, which formerly
occupied a very high place in publio estima
tion, is tho black-ond-ton terrier. There was
a time when theso littlo midgets wero almost
tho only species of dog that wero kept as
household pets. Their brightness, intelli.
gence, good uaturo and docility mado them
universal favorites. Why they should huvo
fallen b completely out of sight cannot bo
accounted for except that fanciers iu turning
their attention inoro to other varieties ncg.
lectod to breed them. It is said, however,
thnt a movement is on foot to start in breed
ing the very small variety again on this sido
of tho Atlantic.

in less than a minute something tho amateur

Two efforts hava been mado within the last
week to get on a match for tho clover Scottish
American Athletic Club boy, Jimmy Larkin.
When Larkin won tho 120-pound amateur
championship n year ago, he knocked out
threo strong opponents in one night. Another
attempt will be mado to-morrow.

Tho ouly way to revivo trotting in Now
York is to imitate, tho running ruco-course.
Only a fortnight ago tho drivers on ono of
mo .cjibieru ijireuiv iruc&n uitriiuru, x umuk,
gave ut) driving in overalls und donned regu.
lar costumes. Tho change was a success. A
still better ono would be to drop heat races
nud adopt dashes at different distances. Mr,
Hubert lionner, Johnny Murphy, L. II. Hurd,
Hiram Smith and others say dashes would
havo a bad effect on tho brood of trotters.
They surely-wouldn't think a horse a poor
ono that could trot two miles in 5 minutes, or
even iu S.14, as Mr. Grosscup's cross-inatohod
team did several years ago. Thero could bo
milo, milo nnd a half and threo and
four or oven five-mile trotting rnccs, which
would draw immenso crowds, bo finished
earlier aud pay better thnn theso wearysomo

ting turf would be tho abolition of tho sulky.
Havo trots in this country as thoy do in
England to saddle. If tho Gentlemen's
Driving Club instead of giving tho $5,000
they lately hung up for a throe duys'
wretchedly attended meeting, had put tho
some amount into a onoor two days' race

giving thoir money to horsossomebody wants

Fleetwood rather than to Jeromo.
" Kilroin may bo able to beat Smith on the

of fighters who frequents the H&ffmnn House.
" Old Greenfield was awny too clever for
Smith when thoy mot in France, but tho
young man could stand a lot of such punches
as Grccnllold could deliver and kept bust

wasn't all Smith by any menus though, if 1

when tho mob broke in tho ring. Mitchell,
if ho woro anything liko as much of a fighter
as ho is a boxer, could lick Jem Smith,
and Kilrain seems to spar very well
with Mitchell. I don't fancy Kilraiu'sbuild as

physiological fact that men with such long

of what I conceived to bo cerebral disorder
had made themselves felt. They took the
form of what we cull familiarly v absenco of

six weeks previous to our breaking up. I
was out walking and studying in Murx's
Grove. It was just 0 o'clock, for I wos iu tho
act of putting my watch in my pocket,
when an awful sensntiou crept over mo
of moral fear. Something was taking place
in my body which made my soul shud

was conscious, to speak proiierly, but was
devoid of physical sensation. And I was
conscious that consciousness was leaving me.
It is very dillicult to make you understand by
words tho exact psychical condition which
ensued. My reason went out, if you will al.

in tho wood transfixed with horror, and u

time. All knowledge of events and of tho

condition. I know now that I kept

my sense of identity. 'Here I am, walkiug

in which there were dim, fitful gleams of
something having gono from mo forever.
When I recou'red myself, I looked about
and tried to recall how I got there. It was
some moments beforo my niiud recovered its

" When I enme to tho city I lived nt my
aunt's houso. Sho was btill a rather gay society
woman, oud I was thrown into a fashionable
circlo, which, although distustcful to mo,
helped to wean me from my melancholy in
trospection. It was during this interval, of
social relaxation thut I discovered how frivo
lous and hollow MUs Fentherstonaugh was.
I think wo felt a deep contempt for each
other before I had been there'll week. Hut
wo both concealed it for politic reasons.
" Thero was in my aunt's houso a girl cm.
ployed originally as a chambermaid; a stout,
healthy country girl, with red checks and
round, dimpled arms, oud a hearty laugh that
rang through the mansion nnd had a strange
charm for me. Owing to her own cleverness
aud honesty, us much as to my aunt's need of
such a person, she became the housekeeper.
Mcr unmo was Judv, but that atrocity had
been softened into Ju, aud it was only as Ju
that I know her for a long time From the
moment that I becamo on inmate of the place
this girl attached herself to mo with a perti.
uucious devotion that w us remarkable. Under
stand mo, it was tho modest, respectful at
tachment of a sincere friend. Sho appeared
to couiperhend by some iustinct of her own,
and almost immediately, the exact discren.
ancy thnt existed between myself nnd the
people uroiiud me, aud she managed tho af
fairs of the houso in such a manner that my
tastes were quietly consulted und many of
my whims gratified.
The girl kept out of my sight as much ns
possible, but sue exerted an influence over
mo not of nn amorous, but of r. vital kind.
Thero wns a wholesome Jnue flavor to her
thnt refreshed me. I used td open my
chamber of mornings when she was bustling
about the houso, to listen to her laugh, for
iu it there wns a subtle suggestion of
health that was like tho magnetism
of outdoors. Whenever I come home
late, no mutter what the hour, I was
sure that sho had been waiting for me to
come in. Whether it was one of the phases
of a valetudinarian weakness or the. natural
selnrmuesa of a hyner-aeusitive man. I cannot
