Passages in the Life of a Dead Beat—Aneecole
of the American Gentleman Beggar.
Correspondent of the Chicago Tribune.
OMAHA, NEB., Sept. 8, 1873.
lcf1iQs I 11111 ono of tlio vtry few
licojtle in tlie United Stall's wliowill rc
gret to hour of the du.itli of poor old
"Bcnu Hickman." I never visited
AVusliintoii lut I niado it my busines4
to look li ii ia ili, anil generully found the
Ueau iiiHir, needy, seedy, ami glad to sou
me. To most eoile he was a bore; but
to nic lie never rendered himself obnox
ious, iiml 1 .confess to Yery bad taste of
alwfivs linilitio; in Hickman a
KOI IMK OK I NCNDIXG AMI SEMKNT.
I lis nnecdote of detid stutesnien, and
the jieculiaiitics of some of the living
ones, were so extremely interesting, and
few men can talk better tliaii.Bcuti alter
dinner, in an easy chair, and with a good
cigar to mff. Then W ebster, (.'lay, lien
ton, Calhoun, llayne, and scores of oth
ers came ironi their graves in all then
glory, and Iieau would sit for Lours and
tell stories of Washington lile of its
great men. I believe, a a rule, he was
very triilhiul, and ni.ule it a point never
to speak ill of the dead.
In their time, both Clay and Webster
admitted Hickman into heir society,
and made a sort of a companion ol him.
Then he was not the poor, old, deeripid,
ill-looking man we have seen him ol late
years; but a tall, straight well-dressed,
handsome, dashing fellow, Willi monoy
in his pocket, and a bank account to
draw upon. He had $l,on left him,
but lost it betting at horse-races. !So
polite was he, and courteous in his man
ners, that for a long time, when he loat
his money, the turf-men received him
and permitted him to '
BET WITHOUT "PUTTING UP."
When he "lost," he promised to pay ;
and, when ho "won," he collected the
stake with as Hi tie delay as possible.
lie was of an old Virginia family, well
raised, and a gentleman both by educa
tion and in manners. His relatives cut
him as a dead-beat on their bounty, and
perhaps no brother was ever so unwel
come, as he when he visited ''the iaini
ly," as he called his brother. He was
generally supplied with sonic ready
ash, and snoved back to Washington
as soon as possible.
Indeed, with money in his pocket, he
never lingered long lor, when in funds
"to l uii with," lieau thought tho Nation
al Capital was the proper place lor a
gentlttiuan to live.
Ouce when he was d.nvn on the bed
rock ol poverty, and actually starving, I
gave hint a dollar, and, seeing mcaoout
lo buy a cigar, he s epped up and
"Allow me, sir, to serve you," and,
taking up two twti.ty-livo cent cigars,
he p' cst nietl me one, anil look ti e otlu r
actually pu) lug hall of the dollar 1
had just gisen bun lor il.e cigars.
"leau, 'i sani, "ou are extravagant.

"One iuii8t live.
LIKK A GJiX'ltKMAN,"
he eooly replied.
.Nearly everybody lias heard the sto
ry credited to turn ot how, wishing to go
from Philadelphia to llarrisburg, ne got
ou the tram, stuck his head out ot me
window, and kept it there until the con
ductor came along and tapped him on
the shoulder, when, butidetily. drawing
it in, he knocked olf his hat, winch tell
outside,aud then became violenly indig
nant ut tin conductor, and said;

The General did so, and Ueau, getting a

Of course the clerk could not readily
change so large a note, and Hickman,
remarking that he was going to stay and
the bill could be paid any time, passed
up stairs, and, handing Uailey llio note,
thanked him cordially for the loan of
the money. No bill was sent him the next

He invited a 11 hands repeatedly to

and most costly brands. Next day I
saw Ueati in the corner of the hall of
the hotel in close conversation with Col.

igander, and in a few moments he went
down into his breeches-jiocket and haul

Ueau. In a day or two 1 found lieau

Hickman was fond of picking op new

Hiirbri-lge pointed to Col. Scofi, a

"He will I t ip yoil, Ueau; he is a good
fellow." Hickman soon managed to en
gage the Colonel, in his adroit waj, in it
eiimal i vci'.atioti and, of cnurre, end
ed by asking him for a dollar. Scott,
ai was evpecled, rebuffed :n!,t Oiarply,

He will kill you if you have given him
the slightest offense." Ueau was evi
dently a coward, for he turned as white
as a sheet, and got out of the hotel in a
hurry. Col. Scott roomed wi'h me, and
not withstanding his great piratical
beard mid tierce looks, was one of the
gentlest and most amiable of men. I
told him of the trick Uurliidi'e had
played on Ueau. and Scott, entering into
the zest of the joke, said he would scare
Ueau out of the hotel, to the infinite re
lief of the gtu-sts mid landlord. Next
day Uurbridge met Ueau ou the street
and said to him, "Look out, Ueau, Col.
Scott is alter yon."
rr was VF.nr rrxxr
to observe Ueau, night after night, come
to the door of the hotel and peak in to
see if Scott was about. He would ad-
Vance step by step and reconnoitre eve

One of Lean's favorite tricks was to

members of Congress, and

It used to be (Flo for a Senator and 5
for a Congressman; but of late years,
Ueau reduced the price of introductions
to 5 for a Senator and SJ..0 foi a Con
gressman. Some of them rebuffed sharp

The Southern men were Lean's best
patrons, and up to the beginning of the
rebellion he throve and prospered on
their generosity. He said tome, one
day after the war: "I was loyal, but my
best friends were rebels. The carpet
sackers arc a mean set, and won't pay
their dues. They are, I assure you, sir,
altogether contemptible, and

sometimes nearly starved. He had a

A Model Young Man.
As I rode ll to the hotel front tl.
depot recently, I was attracted by u
manly young fellow of about twci.ly
tight, who sat liexi to ine iu the Mage.
He w as handsome w ith a hazel eye uud
lush complexion, was veil and neat
ly dreiised, and had especially a silvci
t lied voice. I spoke to him fir-t, be
cause I was utti'iicted by his modesty.
'Vis,'' S;;id he, in reply to an intio

Kvidently he was a rich young blood,

excellent model for the American youth.

'There's Judge s cottage;

He w.'t attracted by the repeated
hows of t vo gorgeous dames who were
passing us slowly in their open carriage,
and w ho opened two huge mouths and a
co i pie of Latteries of ready-made teeth
upon him. He bowed (juite gracefully
to them, and went on wifh his pleasant
descriptions. At the hotel we parted
and 1 lost him; but 1 'thought in this
wise of him: Talk of the degeneracy of
the American youth. Look at this
young fellow. Handsome, polished pleas
ant tempered, elegant in his manners,
rich, modest, sensible. He visits thee
watering-places evidently not to suffo
cate in the hotels, and follow the old
winter routine of dissipation and llirta
tion. He would certainly not sock them
in his own quiet cottage. He came for
the more rational joys of sea air and
bathing, to be, perhaps, near the gill he
loved aud hopes, aud I may say, deserv
es, to win. Happy fellow! True model
he is for the youtit of this glorious re

over to the cottage where the tiger is let
loose, just a step or two from the A est
End, and as I went into the back room,
among tiie rattling of the chips at the
faro table and the clinking of the little
ball in the roulette table I heard that
silvery toned voice again.

Man is no better than a leaf driven by
the wind until he has completely mas
tered his great, lonely duties. If he
has no habit of retiring from all that is

with his inner man, if he does not draw
upon his soul "the powers of the world
to come," then he is no man yet; he has
not found tho life of man, uor the
strength of man he is poor, unhappy
man, sporting only with shadows, and
affrighted before the real and the eter

ful house, but it is shut up, and he lives
outside with his fellow-cattle; the inside
is wholly unknown to him, and he has
lived outside so long that he is afraid of
the inside. Think, my good brothers

world, iu which you might live and move
and havo your being.

Man AS A LEAF. The Converted Oxen.
BY PRECEDENT TUTTLE, OF WABASH COLLAGE.
Oar neighbor, Mr. Angle that VM
not his name, but it will do just aa well
ns the ival name for tho purpose of
this nrtich was it man of acute angles.
In fact his angles were s j sharp as to)
amount to un unpleasant pcculiaritv.
He found many things-not quite right
in the affairs i f the neighborhood, and
he had a fine faculty of letting peopTo
know what fie thought. His rhetorio
was quite energetic, and when one met
! him it was not quite certain whether h
might not say soim thing sharp, or
thrust his angular elbows into his side.
I wish not i-j be understood that Mr.
Angle was difthonest, or untruthful, or
hard-hearted. lie t us far from either
of tln-e iaulls. in bn t he wus 'honent
to a fault,' prided himself on statinjj
any fact exactly, with all the ins and
out, as he was wont to e spree, it, and
his heart was its tender as a child's ta
any t:pj e.il for pity from a real sufferer.
And yet he had a peevish irritability
that w as constantly showing itseii in
the hou.-c, nnd ly the way, when he sat
down end when he rose up. To thia
gi-in-i'id ride there w as one exception.
He fully b -lie'.c-d his minister to bo

him lor n.anv ve o-. had been married

Mr. Angle did not s;i;tre his approba
tion of the pa-tor uu-1 knowing as 1
did the great wi.iii.-t of souls, I did not
wonder and he was wont to say: "II
is a good ma:i, ai:d no mistake. If all
church Li., li.hc, wtrc like him, we
would I t- betier oil iu these parts!"
The pa.-tor, like a u 1 e man, chose his
times and un des ot' i.pproaehing his un
converted palish! her on tho one theme
of his person:. 1 sal i .ition. Now he
sought to ::r j'1-.i; his anxiety for his
children a imt.se full there was and
to a-.k if it were quite right to lay the
whole buni.-ii of iLelr teligioiis training
on his wife.
At piioih'-r time a ueighbor had died
suddenly, leu.iug to hi- friends no
cheering hope that he had attained '
better country," and was it "right for
Mr. Angle to lci'.ve the grunt thing un
done:" And at another time he bombarded
him w ith the word of (Jod, and brought
the authority of his statements as to
man's ruin and salvation to bear on him.
And it was no UL-fieqiieut thing for the
pastor to kneel iii Mr. Angle's house to
pray for him and his houesiioid.
Why wonder then that Mr. Anglo
became uneasy and di.sturbj.-d concern
ing his relation to God as just and Je
sus Christ the only Savior? He had
tried sharp words with the pastor to
parry his blows, lie had enumerated
a formidable list of tuuils in the "saints
of the parish" as he waspishly termed
ti.em util it lie! hot sneuce the one
reply, "Well, Mr. Angle, and what
good does all this do 'jijid If these are
what you say, does that make you whit
God says yuu mut be';"
And sure chough Mr. Angle broke
down in the iiefeL.sc, as he ought to in
so unworthy a cause, and i:i the use of
such unworthy mejos. lie siemcd cu
the point of becoming a Christian.
Uut, as if his acute angle must be al
lowed a presentation even on so thril
ling oce:.sioii, he suddenly said to Lis
pastor, "Vim know what a scold I have
iteen: how I have often fretted in the
house, and .'picked at' iny neighbors
whenever 1 hid a clmuee. Indeed I ara
a very paj.io:iate man, and there is one
thing that now worries ine. You ask
me to become- a Christian, and I want
to be one; but what shall I do when I
try to drive lite most contrary yoke of
oxen that ever plagued a man? I a n
certain they will drive me distracted;
and then people wiil say, "Atid bo Angle
is converted is hi';"
Some m iy siniii', b.;t is not life made
up of trials quite as trivial as that which
Mr. Angle was Uietiouing to his min
ister? "Never fear the oxen," said tho pas
tor. "If you find them getting contra
ry, stop a little while and think of Him
w ho to-day is asking for your heart."
My article needs only a conclusion.
Adty or two after this conversion,
Mr. Angle told l.ii minister, that what
was stranger than his own conversation
was that of lib oven; "for since God put
into iny heart t!n hope that I am a
Christian, mv oxeu havobt'en all I want
ed them t'j i'e!"
Io you laugh nt the notion of Mr.
Angle's "c-'iiv ei'fcd oxer.?"' -Many a
poor hca- t in yoke or harness has felt
the whip, and heard the enraged words
of s::v:i;.e men, who have vetted the
unrest and ai.gcr id their unconverted
and unhappy hearts on the beasts they
were driwng. They tried to apologise
to themselves for this brutality by say
ing, as Mr. Ahglo did, that nobody ev
er had such vicious and contrary beasta
as they. Nav, worse than this some have
displayed their ill-humor at tho hearth-
atone, at the tahle, mm iu the laraiiy,
aud felt themselves to be real niartyra
to unloving children and possibly . to
very unsympathizing wives! The case
is only to' be changed a little to suit
many a fretful aud scolding wife.
Jf'aiich can get their hearis full of a
new life, by a true conversion to God,
they shall 'find iu their surroundings a
change quite similar to that which took
place in .dr. Angles oxen. . .- ...
