Walt Whitman was born nt West Hills, 8uf

bis boyhood ho ntteuded the public schools
in Brooklyn and Now York, and there ob
tained his education.
At nn early age lie learned the printers'

while lie taught school every Winter. Iu the
yenm of 1H47 and 1848 lie msdo n very exten
sive tour through the United Htates and Can
ndu, roughing it everywhere, nnd in this
way acquired n vast amount of information
nnd experience, wbicti ho afterwards utilized
in editing new simpers in Now Orleans aud
Huntington, L. I,
Ho tired of this, bowover, although bo was
always wiping, and devoted himself to tho
enrpentcr's trndo in Brooklyn. In 1855 ho
liuhlishod the lirst edition of "Lenves of
Grass," which crested such a sensation in
Five editions of this work have been pub
lished, to each of winch numerous additions
wero mnde by the poet. His ' bnrbario
yawp, " as it wns called at first, excited only
ridicule, but bo nltcrwuids found a host of
fi lends nud admirers among tho sbiuing lights
of tbo litcrarv world.
Ho claimed to innngnrnio " nn original
moduli style." nnd nnuonnccd himself as
the poot of the Deinocncv. Ho sajsi "We

From 18C2 to 18C5 Walt Whitman was a

Washington nnd Virginia. Ho titled n govern

1871, snd whilo ho wasn Department clerk he
lived in the nttlc chamber of nu old-fashioned

Corcoran Art Gallery now stands. Ho was
taken there when first stricken with paralysis
Hiuce 1874 ho baa lived here in the plain

exorcised daily between the stn'iou nnd the
Polo Grounds, supported by tho shafts of the
back, stood hitched to an nsh-cnrt, without
even the passing complimout of a red-haired
girl. Ho wns a faded irlin of the hsok line.
No merry Jingling of glasses came from the
saloou whtcli used to do business on the
'1 ho only people in One Hundred nnd Sixth

nil roads led to the Polo Grounds wero a

Except for lho somewhnt stony character of

might be u-efnlly put to rnisiuz buckwheat.
Travel bas little further use for it.
A geninl ratcon-kceper sat asleep in frontof
a beer saloon on Fifth nvenne, within a
stono's throw of tbe Polo Grounds. Tbe
spiders were weaving n web over his bottles.

There were no ticket speculators in front

wero, from the wires. No keen-eyed urchin

A bssebsll enthusiast, standing where the

Tho fence bad b'feu torn down on tbo oast

tho fence.the b'eachlng-boards and the grand
stand were left standing.
Tramps were quietly asleep ou the bleach-
ing.bonrds ond Harlem goats were gambol
line about the ball grounds
There was n tin con on second base, and n
goat stole the bsso. A goat was smiling in
tLo box where smiling Mickey Welch used
to sond tho ball curving and hissing over tbe

fielding a tramp in far left field.
Threo tramps wero "working tbe growler"

Gov. Hill's box.
A score of urchins were playing ball nnd
hold,ng n congress of profanity in one part
of tho grounds. About fifty tramps sleep in
the grand stnud every night.
A resident of the neighborhood ssld to the
reporter : " When the New York Club plnyed
on tho ground it was n scono of healthful
sport and popular enthus'asm for two or three
hours n dor. Now it is n place of quarrelling,
profanity aud vagabondage from morning till

grounds after dark. The place bos become a
Whore tho ragged urchins were playing ball

Where lho tramps wero Snoring on the
blenching-boards thousands of voices used to
choer a tbroc-base hit or welcome a home
Where all was comparative silence and des.

Tho abandonment of the Polo Grounds had
almost destroyed bns'ness from One Hun
drcd and Hixth to One Hundred and Six
teenth street and from Third to Eighth ave
nue. Saloon-keepers and shopkeepers, paying
high rents under leoscs mado when baseball
was'plaved in Harlem, found their business
almost destroyed. Somo would soon go out
ot business and there would bo empty stores
and falling rents in Harlem.
The abandonment of tbo Polo Grounds
injured moro renl.estntn owners than it helped
and it greatly injured hnudreds of business
It established a congress of tramps in the
very neighborhood that it was expected to
benefit. It wns an incalculable injury to
baseball and to tho popular enthusiasm for
nthlotlo outdoor sports.
In short, it was n most mistaken net, di
rectly opposed to publlo interest, and the
immediate prospect thbt the grounds will
noon bo booming again should be sufficient
to till every Harlem heart with joy.

rant hanging over his head at the, present timo

to China his head would be cut off.
The above is taken from an article in tho
Philadelphia rimes, by S. E. Chesr. In a letter
to Tub World Wong says his assistant is a
" notorious Chinoae crsck liar " and that 8. E.
Chew is not his real name at all. Chew's true
name, he alleges, is Ju Hhl Jung, and when ho
first came to New York he called himself Bow
Mun Jop. under which name ho was arrested for
blackmailing Mott street gamblers.
Having thus disposed of hip alleged trsducer,
Wong goes on to say that his father was not a
pirate, but a Christian, and was not beheaded,
but died of old age at nlnety-alx. This happened
