together, in n little room bnck of his storo, a
perfect mnsoum of curiosities and relics ro
lnling to tbo old Firo Department, which has
proved of tbo utmost interest to his visitors.
Tbo collection, of which Mr. Smith is very
proud, for ho has spent many years in getting
it together, contains nearly twentvfivo bun
drcd different relics and mementoes. Somo
of tbeso are very raro and cnuuot now be
duplicated. For instance thoro nro G91 old
helmet fronts for prhntos, thirty-sis while
officers' fronts and thirty-four presentation
fronts, some of thorn of colossal size. These
last, of coitrso, wero not meant to bo worn,
but were simply intended to bo preserved as
memoutocs. A largo ono, presented by New
Haven to the Nrw York companies on tbo oc
casion of n vibit many yenis ago, is a very
handsomo pioco of work printod in oil-color.
Tlieli thcro are 23G metal badges, 835 Bilk
bndges and any number of portraits.
Somo of tbo old fronts present tbo most in

It has been decided to take this step this

" I want n shoestring."
This wasaid in a half querulous tono, ns if
tho young man wanted it m spito of himself
and was vexed nt'his own need of it.
" I wish I could get a shoestring that
would not wear out in no timo," ho con
tinued. " Shoestrings always break on
Bunday mornings, too, when you cah't get
another, and just as you nro in n hurry

Altogothor it was a very sad and distress
ing case of shoestring. It moved the vender
of thoso prosaio articles to a practical sym
pathy. " What you want is n porpoise-skin string,"
ho said. ' I havo had a pair nnd they havo
lasted through two pairs of shoos."
The afflicted youth eagerly purchased this

thoy were wondorfully cheap at 15 cents.

Tho world Is full of puihinx women, who, not

Strange as It may seem, the pushing woman Is
not always disagreeable; If she were, all her efforts
would porhapi come to naught. She may bo vul

she must know something of human nature, how
to manage and cajole her betters, when to push;
she must not remember slights; she muit not re

One of the best known men In Nashvlllo owea his
life aud success to his sweetheart. He was born
and reared on ono of tho British Isles, the son of a
prosperous banker. When nearly twenty-one he
had n serious difficulty with his fnther and was
bidden never to darken the doors of hit ancestral
home. It was late at night when he left the home
and wandered along the moor which bordered
the family domain. He was prostrated with
grief and remorse and determined to take
his life, lie sat down and took his plslol out. As
he reflected, ho took a photograph of his sweet
heart from an luncr pocket of his coat anil-scanned
the well-known features with eyes dimmed with
tears. Thinking upon her, hope returned, and he
determined to live for her sake, It not for his own.
lie hastily shoved the weapon Into his pocket and
started for the railway station. He came to Amer
ica and drifted to Nashville. He prospered In
business, and Is now a hlgnly respected oltlzen.
Unfortunately the romance ends here. For
years he had no communication with his famliy,
and the letters he wrote his sweetheart miscarried,
for shortly after ho left, her famliy moved to a dis
tant town. He returned home a few years ago
.and sought out nU""early"lov. Hhe was married
and three children played about her knees. He
baa consoled hlmseff with a fair American, and
considers himself one of the happiest of men. But
he has never ceased to thank his stars for the girl
who onco saved his life; that her Influence did pre

as ahe ? Is there any one ao fetching and so entic

Convention; she sat opposlto mo at dinner, wear
ing a silk gown, all tilled In above her plump white
shoulders and gontle breast with rose-plnlc tulle
that made her look liko a new-born Venus. I saw
her bending a golden head over her books out at

The Cat Snored I.IIic a Human Mels;.
' trmn ( Mr(ord foil,
Tbo curious experience of a year-old maltcse cat,
owned by William. T. Johnson, of Barbour street,
is worthy of note. Somo two months ago It began
a terrible sneezing, continuing In soro ttralts,
snoring In Its sleep like a human snorer until, at

old. Ho is nt tho collcgo of Aix.iu tho fourth
class. During the intervening time the fam
ily has sustained n sad loss. His father is
dead, and tho shadow of want seems already
to hover over their homo. Thoy havo moved
from tho town to tho country, into a dis
mantled dwelling, surroundod by seven or
eight acres of land, on which freely sprouts
a luxuriant and wild vegetation.
Grown a little wild, liko tho grass and the
trees of tlio orchard itself, with a nature at
the same timo turbid rind reflnod, in which
lay itormifct as many high aspirations as mere
sensations, Enulo has reached the ago in
which tho heart imprisoned under tho stu
dent's gown is apt to become corrupted. But
he is so little of a student that he hardly de-,
serves airy great praiso for resisting the con
tagion. With him love of nature, of eun
shiuo, and especially of shooting, triumphs
over the most pernicious examples. When
the whistle of tun decoy birds sounds down
there under tho dead twigs laid in the direc.
tion in which the wind blows, Emtio readily
forgets the collcgo of Aix.

her better than ho. Serious men, common

In 1879, on a bright morning in spring, tho
author of thn "Itoiigou-Macqtiart" scries
was seated on a balcony fronting tho Mini,
beau Sounro nt Aix. Tho express from Paris
had a short timo beforo brought him to tho
sct'no of bis childhood's days. Ho had come
tn brenthe for a few days tho air of his uativo
town, to bask iu tho sunshine, to forget tho
feverish struggles of lifo in Paris in the calm
repose nnd the revivifying odcra of his bo
lood Proveucal country. And this morning
ho was quietly chatting about tho past with
tho companion of his youth. Paul C, tho
artist. This dcuco of a 0. had any number
of souvenirs. Thcro was no tale, however
ancient, of which he did not remember tho
slightest details. His head was tilled with
facts entirely forgotten by others, with names
and things long since dead and buried. Ouo
often meets theso retrospectivo minds, these
memories tilled liko gracyards. in which
men and things havo planted their tomb
stones aud signed their dates, in which ono
finds iu a sort of a crystalline form the ex
cavated miniature of nn entire epoch.
Einilo Zola liked to listen to this voico,
speaking from the depths of forgotten times,
of vanished years, gently touching on hfs
own lifo, lingering ou gopd points, slurring
over regretted events, stirring up with pre
caution oceans of dead leaves he deemed
long since scattered in every direction.
" You remember twenty years ago ? You
remember such a one ?"
No, he did not remember, So many things
had happened ! Life's torments bad effaced
m many imprints, had reduced to dust so
i many former wrecks, he bad not had tho
I leisure to watch otcr the henpiug up of his
i recollection. In his hand-to-hand combat
with life, with art, with Paris, many things
I hail been forever shattered, aud each year
which added a wriuklo to his brow effaced a
souvenir in his heart.
