tbo ball, tbo excitement, bnstlo and confusion
' greater tbau sinco tbo fair opened. Somo
one bas said that tbo porsooring attendants
bnvo not given tbeir two weeks to tbo fair
without good results. Indeed, if ouo doubts
tbo statement, let hiin run into tbo fairy-liko
jilaco of an afternoon or evening. If bo
escapos with Iub pockctbook entire be may
reasonably question tbo assertion.
Hero is ono of tbo many ingenious plots to
fill books aud doploto men's purses. That is,
it looks very much like a plot. Listen. At
tbo foot of tbo ball nightly a master organist
1 makes the walls resound with lively mtiBic.
To tbo left of tbo organ is a narrow passage
leading botweon two rows of booths. At
each of the booths on citbor baud two
demure-faced maidens tako tbeir stand.
Thou tbo organ belches forth its harmonies
aud tho crowds flock to boar. They pour in
from all directions, tho majority boing forced
to find passage through this nanow aislo,
aud hero at ev ory turn innocent-appearing
faces appeal for charity.
" Can't j ou give a chance," is tho plea.
And you say no, as though j ou meant it, and
then try to pass along. You cannot.
There you are, wedgod in by scores in front
as well as behind, and tho probabilities are
that beforo jou escape your namo is down for
a stove or cradlo or a crazy quilt.
Indeed these watchers at the aislo have
beou compared to Bcylla and Charybdis of
old. wrecking men's hearts and purses as tho
mythological characters are supposed to havo
wrecked tho ancient mariuors.
There, is no diminution in receipts or at

There is no abatement in tbo voting interests.

longing to tbo city
along tbo North Itlvcr sido havo nlrendy been
socurod by tbo ChrKtmas-treo speculators for
their tw o weeks' business. In another week
all tbo trees will bo in tho market, and ovory
ouo of thoso lots will becomo a busy mart.
At tho foot of Chambers street tbo dealers
havo been hustling nt a lively roto to get
thoir stocji into shopo to catch tho tarly cus
tomers, and they havo certainly mado an at
tractive dibplay. On ono sido of tbo central
passage-way two or throo Maino men ha o
stationed themselves, nnd a Now Y'ork Stato
man from tbo Catskills holds tbo fort on tbo
other side. Thoro aro trees of all sizes, from
the littlo throo and four foot scrubs up to
twenty-fivo and thirty foot beauties with
long aud gracefully tapering tops. Tho
smaller trees are tied up in bunches of threo
and fivo each, and aro piled up lougthwiso
liko cord-wood, but tbo lnrgo ones aro placed
erect against a w oodeu framework to keep
them from being injured or broken.
Tho Christmas treo trade is of such short
duration that city business men do not caro
to go into it at all. It is managed mostly by
the farmers, who have comparatively littlo to
do on their farms at this timo of tho year,
and can easily find timo for tbo undertaking.
Thoso who understand tho ropes can mako a
very fair thing out of the business, but not
vry much, they say, for if they muko a fair
interest on the capital they invest in the busi
ness, and get paid for thoir labor, thoy aro
According to ono of tho Cotskill men tho
first cost of the trees is about half tbo ex
pense of the undertaking. Those who bring
tho trees to the city, go around among tho
farmers early in November and buy up from
each one ns many trees as ho will sell off his
land, until they navo as many as they think
they can soil. Tho trees cost them on an
averago fivo to ten cents apieco, mostly
Then thero is the labor of trimming them
and tying them up in bundles, and the cart
ing and transportation, which mako up the
other half of the expense of gottiug them to
market. It costs the Maino speculators still
more to gt't their trees to New York, becauso
tbo oxpenso of transportation is greater, but
thoy do not havo to pay so much for them,
which makes expenses about oven iu tbo end.
Tho largo dealers seldom sell singlo trees.
Thoy dispose of thom by tbo bundle, or tho
dozen bundles, to smaller dealers, who sell
them at retail. Tbo smallest trees bring at
wholesale 0 or CO cents a bunch of five, wnilo
tho largo trees bring from $1 to $2
a bunch for threo. The largo smglo trees sell
at from $5 to S10 apioce, according to size
and shape. That is early in the season, when
customers come around to pick out tho best
trees. It always happens that a largo num
ber of trees are left unsold towards the end
of tho holidays, and then tho finest that re
main are sacrificed ut any prico, for the farm
ers all want to get homo by New Year's.
They usually manage things so shrewdly that
thoy get enough profit on their early sales to
cover all expenses, and then all that they
make on tbeir later sales is clear profit.
While the number of trees from the Cats,
kills is less than usual this year, tho quality
is said to be very superior. Some of tho tall
est and most symmetrical trees ever brought
into tho market are among the Sullivan and
Greene County contributions. They tower
away above the Maino State trees, and it is
observed that the Bparrows are patronizing
them almost exclusively and will not roost
on the Maino trees.
From Maine tho contribution is about tbo
samo as usual, tbcro being no perccptiblo
cbango in either quantity or qua lty. Tho
retailers sell trees from 16 and 20 cents up.
The trees all belong to the balsam or bal
sam fir family, with now and then a small
Bpruco treo mixed in. The balsam is tbo
easiest treo to trim, becauso its branches aro
flexible and tho needles aro not sharp aud
A great deal of Christmas green is also sent
down from Maine every year in bulk. Tbo

As the light fell upon him it was easy to seo
that bo was no common man, and that his
was no ordinary face.
He stood a full minuto without speaking,
his hands clasped before him.
Those who looked at him saw a man of
slight, well-knit figuro, with dork, clean,
shaven face, square mouth and chin that
spoke of moro than ordinary courago and
resolution, ond eye sthat seemod to read tbo
very soul of any one who met their gazo. Ho
was very pale, but his voico when he spoko
rang through tho church clearly and dis
tinctly. " My friends," he said, "wo meothero this
morning for tho first time in our lives, to
tako up tho mutual relations of pastor and
flock, and under ordinary ciroumstances wo
should have taken part in tho scrvlco
of our church. But out in the
blinding storm thero aro human be
ings, our fellow creaturos, face to face
with death, face to face with etornity, and
thoso of us who are ablo must go forth and
do what we can to save them. You who aro

thoBo who are, that thoy may do something
towards rescuing theso poor people. Flease
God, to-night wo may be ablo to thank him
for helping us to rescuo those who aro now

Thou Mr. Hemming, who had gained moro
goodwill bi that short speoch than if ho bod
preached an hour-long sermon, went quickly
out of tho church, followed by tho men and
boys and most of tho women, whoso agitation
was heightened by tho sound of tho gun,
which had begun to boom more incessantly,
and by tho cries that camo up from tho beach
Somo few remained terror-stricken in tbo
church; but most hurried out and followed
tho clergyman aud his littlo throng down tho
steep path to tho ea.
Once outsido the church tho whole scene,
in its awful terror, burst on tho beholder,

It Is, I thluk, an erroneous idea that fatly ninr

aucLoss in life and tho menial tleelopmeul and
hupplncps Of Iho parties. '1 hat this Is aumuimes

ruined b it. 1 ncre la aoincthlng Inspiriting and en

I know; but 1 think they aro often contracted on
purely business principles. A man who has out

the woman who has outlived tho Ircahueia of her
youth Hilda herself In ono sense alone; or, she
wants money cr position, or a home, or to eacapo
from the ouo she has, and she marries from necess

but ofieuer the contrary. I icllee, too, that
thero aro as many mistakes made between twenty
five and thlrtr-tUe aa between eighteen and twenty
flvej and a I write, my thoughts go back to the
far-utr grave of ono who, after a brief dream of
happiness had awakenid to find hrr life empty of
everything w blch she prized tho highest, lletween
herself and her husband there was no sentiment in
common, nor was one possible He lwd his ideas,
and she had hers, and i oth were aa wl lely apart as
the poles. In contrast to this is the case of an
other filend who was married at thirty-nine to
a man about her own age, and who was and is still
as happy as waB ever a bride of twentj.
An 1 so one might go on citing Instance alter in

would be none tho wiser, lor although sermons

uess, and was lost to view. '!$
It was too dark to follow his procress, but ?
now and then tho rope trailed out a littlo, and, .jasl
tho men know tho brave parson was swim- - Z'j

"I'm afraid he's gone, poor fellow 1 Thero vMiBH

Tho ropo was beinp; pulled out quickly and H
surely, und through tho storm tho watchers U
fancied they heard a faint cry. Then thoro "
was silenco, and it may bo that each xnaa Q
Buddonly tho ropo was tugged violently ?
"Now, lads 1" said tho leader, seizing It wH
and commencing to pull; "draw away gently ,
but surely. And pleaso God we'll get 'em k
aliv e through tho surf yonder. Full away, -flH
men !" '$
And soon out of the darkness two human '!&L
boiugs wero drawn, half.doad, and both un- t
conscious. The one, a woman, was carried tlt
iiuickly to tho nearest cottago, while her pre. t'wB
server had brmuly poured into him, and was JiH
well cared for at the hands of his com itfflH

"Bafo?" ho said, looking round him va- toMiLLl

" Hafo enough, sir, thank Qod and youl" al
said u flshenuan. " She's come round now, M M
and there's no lives lost whatever." flH
" Heuv en he thanked 1" said Mr. Hemming. jj$ M
" I'll go up and seo her and tho others of the H
rescued in u few minuteB, if you'll give mo y H
soinothing dry to put on." .-4 H
Half an hour later he entered tho room of &
tho cottago whero lay tho woman whose lifo ha 1JTl
had riBked his own to save. She was lying on w J
a couch, dressed in a long dark garment lent cy.'il
her by tho woman of tho house, and in tho 1
light of tho caudlo that stood near her tho $
spectators noted that Bhewas young, that a V'Bal
great mass of golden hair coverod her shoul- tHI
dors, that hor eyes woro deep blue, and that ''a
tho color was just coming back into her .flH
cheeks anil lips. "Jel
She half roso as her preserver entered and PJ M
began to pour out quick incoherent ezchuna &
tions of gratitude. c?iH
" How can I thank you ?" sho cried, as the rWiH
clergyman advanced towards her. "Ho-f tjl
can I? Why, Godfrey Heimuiug. is it vouf $m
