nities ami i)iii. k to grasp them. They play an
importaut pi.rt in the developmt nt of a city.
They not only foresee the future, but to a great
txtent tin v make the future. Upon their judg- I
ln? ut capitalists invest their money, and those
who are iu search of homes or small invest
ments consult them as they would their lawyer
or physician. In this city the business has "de
veloped into a profession, and a large number
of the dealers devote their entire time to the
(Management of real estate in its various rela
tions. Some years ago the real estate business
here was an incident of some other calling, and
no one thought of making it a separate busi
ness. Now there are large real estate offices,
with corps of trained assistants and clerks. Per
haps in no other city is there such a num
ber of competent specialists in this line.
They are a progressive element in the com
munity. They believe in improvements of
?11 kinds, and they take an active interest in
every enterprise that will be of benefit to the
city. They induce foreign capital to come
here by showing in what waj it can be invested
profitably. No man of means who visits
the city can truthfully say that there is no
opening here for good investments. The real
estate men point out to him opportunities, and
judging from the large number who have not
Only placed their money in Washington prop
erty but have made their homes here these op
portunities must have been gilt-edged. A
?ouud head upon a good pair of legs is the only
capital with which most of the successful real
estate men in this city started in business. If
in the course of years, as is natural, the legs
lose something of their youthful activity, the
quick judgment and the confidence w hich see
a town lot in a forest never deserts a genuine
real estate man. which goes to |#ove that there
is no such thing as growing old iu the business.
As the real estate men hold such an important
place in the community, the readt rs of The
br \a will be interested in knowing something
about the business careers of some of the lead
ing men as given below.
Kltch, Fox & Brown.
Mr. James E. Fitch, of the firm of Fitcb. Fox

being then but two or three firms in the latter
business. In November. 1*?6. he was joined
by Mr. Robert C. Fox. his present partner,
their bnsin-ss soon developing into one of large
proportions. In 1N72

this city. While he is one of the veteran i in

home in Great Bend. Pa., and having his own
wa> to make in the world he entered one of the
government departments. He occupied his
leisure moments in perfecting his education,
and after a short experience as a government
clerk be was appointed a deputv collector of
int^nal revenue for the ninth district of Penn
sylvania. With the view of fitting himself for
an independent career, he began the study of
law with Hon. Thaddeus Stevens, of Pennsylva
nia, and upon his return to this city he com
pitted his course of
study at the Columbian
Law school. graduating
in the class of 1H89. He
commenced practice
but after a few weeks
he concluded to enter
the real estate business
which he did a* n mem

business for himself and
met with such succc
that in lHTfi he built th ?

front siitl compares favorably with the
handsi mc buildings which now adorn that street.
His enterprise, backed by great energy, has
established one of the largest real estat" busi
nesses in the city. Mr. Warner has from the
first had great confi-lence in the future of the
city. He has inspired others with the same
confidence. His ability in planning and de
vising a business enterprise is only equaled by
his boldness and skill in execution. He has
been an extensive builder. and has been prom
inent in the development of suburban proj>
erty. He has probably been connected with
more local enterprises than any other young
man of his age. In a large number of the char
itable and financial institutions of the city he
has taken an active interest. While still at the
head of his real estate business he is the presi
dent of the Columbia National bank, which he
was largely instrumental in establishing. Mr.
Warner has an elegant city residence at the
corner of Massachusetts avenue and 21st street.
and a comfortable country home on the <th
street road.
Associated with Mr. Warner in the^ real
estate business is Mr. George W. F. Swart
zell and Mr. * ouis D. Wine. Mr Swartzell
has charge of the rent
department of the busi
ness. He is a young,
active man with a
special aptness for reai
estate matters, and was
first employed by Mr.
Warner as a clcrk and
then taken into the
firm. He was born in
Miffintown. Fa., and.
having received a com
mon school education,
at an early age he, be
gan to earn his own
living. At the same
time he continued his
^ ; stndi's. perfeciing him
self in higher mathe
matics and business
o. w. f. hwaktzeu. forms. He was in the
employ of the Pennsylvania railroad telegraph
company, and was then engaged with his
father as surveyor and civil engineer of his
native county. Subsequently he went into the
banking business in his native place as an
employe of the firm of Doty. Parker A Co.. of
which Mr. E. Southard Parker, the cashier of
the Columbia national bank of this city, was a
member. In l*7ti he came to this city and
began his career here as collector in the office of
, 1$. H. Warner. His ability and application
gained him the esteem and confidence of Mr.
i WMMT. In MM he became a member of the
fTrm. As the circle of his influence widened
the same qualities which had advanced him in
his business cart er gave him a success which
j falls to the lot of few young men. His pleasant
address, clear aiul prompt judgment in all mat
j ters of business is appreciated by all who come
; in contact with him. He is an expert in the
management of estates and 011 the value of
property. Mr. Swartzell is interested 111 re
ligious and charitable work, and his name js
identified with a number of organizations of
this character.
Mr. Louis D. Wine has been favorably and
prominently known in business circles in this
city for a number of years. Few men have
warmer personal
friends. His genial.
sunny disposition sup
fdemented by a shrewd
tusiness sense and
great energy is the
secret of the success
which has crowned his
efforts. Mr. Wine is a
native of Loudon Co.,
Va.. and began life as a
school teacher. When
a young man he came
to this city and went
into the wood and coal
business. He was at
first employed as a
clerk. anJ having
gamed a thorough I- D. wt!*E,
knowledge of the business lie was appointed
chief clerk and assistant superintendent of the
quartermaster's coal depot. At the same time
he resumed his old occupation as a school
teacher, and had charge of a night school. He
then established a wood and coal busi
ness in Georgetown, but shortly after
ward formed a partnership with Thomas
J. Luttrell. and for a number of
years earned on a dry goods business, the
firm of Luttrell A Wine being one of the promi
nent business houses of the city. A few years
ago he went into the real estate business as a
member of the firm of Wcscott. Wilcox A
Wine. He then became associated with Mr.
Warner in business as a member of the firm,
and devotes his attention mainly to the sides
department. Mr. Wine has held many posi
tions of trust. He has been the treasurer of
several prosperous building associations, and is
a director of the Farmers' and Mechanics' na
tional bank of Georgetown, in which institu
tion he takes a great interest. Mr. Wine has a
fine country residence at Hyattsville. Md..
known as Kaveuswood. where he has large real
estate interests in connection with Mr. George
J.Johnson. He is one of the pioneers in dev elop
ing suburban property, while his knowledge of
property values in the city is thorough and ex
tensive.
Thoftiaa .1. Fisher & Co.
It would be impossible to write the history
of real estate in this District without reference
to the firm of Thomas J. Fisher A ("o. During
the long and honorable business career of this
firm they have been as agents intimately con
nected with the development of property
throughout the District. The senior member
of the firm since the death of Mr. Fisher is Air.
Edward J. Stellwagen. He is a native of this
District and at the age of twenty he graduated
from the Columbian luw school, lie had no in
tention of adopting the
profession of law, but
having in view the
business of real estate
he took a law course
for the purpose of be
coming familiar with
legal requirements and
forms. Soon after
graduation be opened
an office 011 7th street,
between E and F
streets, and began his
buwiu'-ss career. This
twas in 1875. Like all
t-oung men thrown
fc^upon their own re
1 sources, Mr. Stell
wagen at first met with
many discouragements
r. J. stellwaoex. and trials. He had.
however, energy and perseverance and marked
business ability which was not long in finding
recognition. Several years later llr. Fisher
having returned to the city from the north
where he had been engaged in business for
some time, and having decided to resume his
former business here, a partnership was effected
with Mr. Stellwagen and the firm of
Thomas J. Fisher A Co. was organized.
The first office of the firm was at 1223 F street,
and then later they removed to 1324 F street,
where the business has been carried on ever
since. The firm has enjoyed to a marked degree
the confidence of the public, and the conduct
of large enterpises involving important inter
ests has been placed in their charge. One of
the largest transactions in recent years in
property in this District is the purchase and
subdivision of the Kalorama property, which
was carried on under their supervision. Mr.
Stellwagen is connected with the management
of a number of financial and charitable enter
prises of the city, and is a man of sterling
character and attainments.
The other member of the firm is Thomas M.
Gale, who is a young man of great personal
popularity, and is well equipped as a business
man. He was born in
New York city, where
he spent the earlier
portion of his life. He
was engaged in busi
ness there when the op
portunity was pre
sented of entering the
firm of Thomas J.
Fisher A Co. In 1881
he took up his perma
nent residence in this
city. Upon the organ
ization of the Distric
militia he was ap
pointed aid on Gen.
Ordwav's staff, and
now holds the position thoxas x. oale.
of inspector-general of the District militia.
He is also interested in the management of
several institutions, and. while young in years,
is recognized as one of the solid men of the
city. Both of the present members of the
firm married daughters of Mr. Thos. J. Fisher,
and their social as well as their business rela
tions are of the closest nature. The adrertis

of the extent of the business of this firm.

of a Hf lf-niade man as can be found in the
District. He was born on Bell street. George
town. February 3. 1848. Notwithstanding the
fact that he ia but a comparatively young man
he has established one of the most extensive
| and successful real estate businesses in the citv
; an achievement due to *n unusual amount of
; pluck, enterprise and good ju-W-nnt. He
1 commcnced the busi
ness of life as a page in
the House of Represen
tative* at the age often,
and since then he has
been self-sustaining.
At the commencement
of the war he introduc
ed the sale of news
papers into the Union
army, and dispensed
the first periodicals to
the troops after they
had crossed the Poto
i mac. The grit and push.
I of the little fellow won'*
1 him extended notice
! and praise, and aft. r
i McClellans Peninsular
I campaign he obtained
the exclusive privilege of supplying the Armv
or the Potomac with reading mater and
stationery. He had here an opportunity to
make a fortune, but thronijh the designs of his
partner, an elderly man. he lost it. The other
made over $100,000. When the war closed he
held a special sutler's privilege at the head
quarters of Gen. Hancock, and after the smoke
had cleared away and peace had come again ho
obtained a clerkship in the Post-Office depart
ment. In a short while he was given a posi
tion in the New York custom-house, but realiz
ing that there was but a poor future before a
Korernment clerk he managed to find a situa
tion in a wholesale hardware house in St. Louis
rour years passed and Mr. Holtzmans eves
were opened to the wonderful advantages of his
native city in the line of real estate business,
and he returned to embark in that business
with F. W. \flller A Co.. then located on F
street, between 9th and 10th. in the old Gon
zago college building, where he had gone to
school in his boyhood. The firm lasted two
years and a half, and then Mr. Holt/man
launched a canoe of his own. Prosperity
came in course of time, an.l in 1880 he er. cted
the bnildinj? ho now occupies, on the northeast
corner of F and 10th streets. wh"re lie holds
the reins of his large establishment. Mr. Holtz
inan is a tru-tee and the secretary of th?' St.
\ metLt'a orphan asylum, trustee of the Reai
V'te title insurance company, trustee ol' the
I ulunilua tire insurance company, trustee of
the National life insurance company, director
of the National press brick company, and a
director oj the Southeastern natural gas com
pany of the state of Ohio.
Personally Mr. lloltznmn is a pleasant,
geni i, uian, and he owes almost as much of the
or. <lit for his success to tiiis fact as to that i.e
is a liriu believer in the efficacy of printer's ink

is one ot the most active and prominent voung
men in his line of business in the city. He is
the youngest of five
sons of \V. ?V. Danen
hower. a gentleman
widely known and high
lv respecti d in this com
munity. lie began his
early education in the
public schools of this
city at the old engine
bouse building which
o< copied the site of the
present Abbott school,
corner Cth street and
New York avenue. After
finishing the course at
he grammar school he
onthiued his studies at
he .Maryland state
agricultural college.
When only seventeen
wash. Dan en ho we R. years of age a desire to
become self-supporting and to learn the art of
printing induced him to apply for a position as
apprentice in the government printing office,
and in this he was successful, obtaining the
appointment ont of a class of twentv-seven can
didates. After twelve months' apprenticeship
he was promoted to the class known as -rule
and figure, which is recognized as the finest
kind of work known in printing He
continued on this kind of work for seven years
when he resigned his position and formed a
partnership with his father, and established a
real estate business under the firm of Dnnrn
hower A Son. in the spring of '80. Heal estate in
\\ ashington at this date was not very active but
this firm together with other leading firnis of
the city, had great faith in the future of our
capital, as is evidenced by the prosperity which
has attended them in all their ventures The
senior member of the firm retired from busi
ness on the 1st day of January. 1888. and the
business then passed into the hands of his son.
1 hough comparatively a young man. .Mr Danen
liower occupies a prominent position among the
real estate- brokers of Washington, a position
fairly earned by his marked business ability and
strict integrity of character. The great secret
of his success is found in the conscientious and
painstaking manner in which he looks after the
interests of his clients, giving his personal at
tention to all matters of importance intrusted
to his care. His nerve to back his own opin
ions enables him to make profitable investments
for clients who rely on his honesty and judg
ment. For several years Mr. Danenhower has
engaged largely in building operations, and has
built over five hundred houses in all sections of
the city the northeast section being specially
indebted to his energy and pluck for many of
its substantial improvements. During the past
year Mr. Danenhower has tried liberal adver
tising as a means of communicating with the
public, and has convinced himself that it is the
only wav to do business. Hi* year's experience
hr.s resulted in such an increase of business
that he has been compelled to enlarge his office
and increase his force of assistants. He attrib
utes a great deal of his success to the assistance
rendered by the advertisements in The Star
which he feels have repaid him. .Mr. Danen
hower expresses a firm confience in the future
of this city and the stability of present prices
with a steady and healthy appreciation of values
as the population iiiereases.
31. M. Parker.
One of the well-known men in real estate cir
cles is Myron M. Parker. He is a capable, en
ergetic man of affairs and possesses social qual
ities which endear him to a large circle of
friends. Mr. Parker was born in Fairfax, Vt.,
in 1843. He was educated in the public schools
of J<"r?ont- and at th*' Fort Edward Institute
in New York. Entering
the army in 18t?2 as a

the close of the war,
and then received an
appointment as clerk in

was appointed assistant postmaster of this city
in 1879, serving two years with ex-Postmaster
Ainger. He entered actively in the real estate
business in this city in 1882, and has met with
great success. He has been a close observer of
the values of real estate in the different sec
tions of the city, particularly in the north and
northwest, his estimates of value having been
so correct that many of the largest and most
profitable investments have beeu made through
him. He has been more closely identified with
Columbia Heights than any other subdivision
around Washington, having had the sale of this
property since it was first placed on the market
by Senator Sherman. He has been interested
!?. "?'.arly all the large purchases adjoining
n ashington, and has been instrumental in in
ducing the large amount of foreign capital to
locate in Washington.
He was one of the promoters and is part owner
of the Atlantic building, and has made other
investments in business property on F street
which he intend* to hold. He wam one of the
organizers and has since been a director in the
Columbia National bank, Columbia Fire Insur

Washington Hospital for Foundlings, vice
president of the brightwood Railroad company
and president of the Masonic Mutual Relief &b

Hason, having been grand master for two
years, and is now chairman of the triennial
committee haying charge of the ceremonies in
cident to the twenty-fourth triennial conclave

William Corcoran Hill
entered business life as
a clerk in the bunking
house of Riggs A Co.
Here he became very
popular and in 1886 he
decided to use that pop-i
uliiritv and his mom y
makiak talent for his
own advancement, no in
the fall of that year ho
formed a partnership w. c. hit.1,.
with Bernard H. Johnston. Their joint labors
speedily laid the foundation of a solid business.
Mr. Hill is a sou of the late Rev. 8. P. Hill, ot
this city, and a nephew of the lute W. W. Cor
coran. hi" mother being Mr. Corcor in's sister.
Bernard H. Johnston,
the son of the late Dr.
Win. P. Johnston, has
for a long time been a
resident of Wasington.
and is thoroughly iden

terest* of the city. For
a number of years he
was connected with the
First National bank,
and his activity in com
mercial life, both hi re
and on the Pacific
coast, is too well known
to net d comjni-nt. Hill
X Johnston commenced
in r.n oil ice under
b. h. Johnston. Worm ley's hotel, on
15th street, but a rapidly-increasing business
soon called for more comniod oils quarters, and
in September. lS-iS, the firm moved into the
offices now occupied by them?1503 Pennsyl
vania avenue, adjoining liigg* A Co.'s bank.
They give strict attention to the sale of prop
erty placed in their hands, and make a
specialty of the renting business. Success lias
attended their efforts from the start, and they
now have for their clients some of the most
prominent citizens of this and other cities,
j Not a little of this success is due to the intelli
gent manner in which they have used the ad
1 vertising columns of Thb Stab. Says Mr.
Hill: "We adwrtise exclusively in The Stab.
for experiments in otiu r papers have been
I failures. Our investment iu The Staii always
pay well."
Woscott & Wilcox.
Of respectable age and very firmly estab

Wilcox. Its beginning
was in 1>S75. wii n .Mr.
Wescott op< in <1 up at
the corner <?;' 20th and

grew slowly and satis
factorily. and in VuS
Mr. Wilcox became as
sociated with it and the

New quarters were soon
an imperative necessity,
and in 18*4 the firm
purchased and remod

stantly growing patron
age the building P.*)7
Pennsylvania avenue,
where they have now
one of the largest and
most commodious offices in the city. In ad-li
I tion to their extensive real e tate connections
they have recently established a fire insurance
department, which embraces home and forei :n
companies. K. S. Wescott was born iu Nt w

years old. but is a na
tive of the state of New
York. After leaving
school he became an
as-istant secretary to
Gov. Cooke, the gov
ernor of the District of
Columbia. Later he
entered the real estate I
office of B. H. Warner,
and after remaining
there a short time he
formed the partnership
with Mr. Wgscott which
exists to-day. The pop- '
nlarity which the firm
has achieved has been

is not a question for discussion; it is a self-evi
dent fact
John Sherman & Co.
The real estate firm of John Sherman A Co.
dates its beginning from 1875. when John
Sherman, an extensive builder, established an
office in the St. Cloud building. The firm
prospered, and in 1882 moved to 927 F street,
where thev remained until 1885, when they
moved to their present
quarters, 1407 F street.
Mr. Sherman retired
from business in 1882.
and Messrs. L. C.
Young and William H.
Saunders, the junior
members of the firm,
succeeded him. Mr. L.
C. Young, the junior
member of the present
firm, is a native of
Maryland, and speut
his early years in farm
ing. In 1875 he saw an
petting in this city, and
onnected himself with
the firm of John Sher
man .t Co., as clerk. By
industry and close at
I? C. young. tcntion to business ho
soon rose in the estimation of his employer
and the confidence of the public, and was ad
mitted into the firm in 1887. Since that time
"lie has been with the compauy and lias built up
a lucrative business.
Mr. Wm. H. Saunders.
the junior member of
the present firm, is a
Virginian by birth and
education. He came to
Washington in August,
1887, to enter the rejjl
estate business, and No
vember of the same year
became a member of the
firm of John Sherman A
Co. During his two
years' residence i n
Washington he has es
tablished among his ac
quaintances a reputa
tion for straightfor
wardness. clear judg-1
ment and business in
tegrity.
The firm has prospered
under the able man
agement of himself and partner and enjoys a
large and growing clientage, while it has re
tained its prestige as one of the leading real
estate firms of the city. They aro believers iu
the virtue of advertising, and attribute much
of their snccess to their constant use of the
columns of The Stab.
T. H. Sypherd & Co.
Few men in the real estate line possess a bet
ter knowledge of the value of suburban prop
erty than Mr. James E.
Clements, the represen
tative of the firm of T.
H. Sypherd & Co. Mr.
Clements is a native of
Marylaud. and is thirty
four years of age. He
was graduated at St.
John's college, in Alex
andria, in 1873, at the
head of his class. Think
ing that a business
t course at the Spencerian
? business college would
improve him he entered
that institution soon
after, but before com
jas. it. Clements, pletiug his business
course, accepted an appointment as teacher of
the Walker public school in Alexandria county,
Va., near Arlington. While teacher he took
np the study of law, and attended
the Georgetown law college, where he
remained until 1H82, when he graduated.
The next year he resigned his school and com
menced the practice of law, being elected the
same year commonwealth attorney of the ad
ioining county of Alexandria, Virginia, where
le now resides. In 1887 he was re-elected to
office, and now serves the state. Not content
with remaining idle a greater part of the week,
as his duties as attorney only required his at
tention for a few days, he associated himself
with Mr. T. H. Sypherd, and devotes his spare
time to the sale of real estate, especially in
Virginia and along the Potomac river near the
city. Like all other real estate men his Arm
recognizes the value of the Stab as a means of
informing the pnblic of the choice pieces of
property they can dispose of.

TRAITS OF SEW YORKKRS.
Characteristic# Peculiar to the Dweller*
on Manhattan Isle.
THEY 8LEEP AT ODD TIXE* IX ODD PLACES?
THSY ARE HI'N .RV FOB KUIMJO PAPERS. AND
HAVE A BIO BUXP OFCCBIOSITT. BfT SO REVER
ENCE? CHARACTERISTICS PECULIAR TO LADIES.
Correspondence of Thx Evekino Star.
New Yore. May 24.
Notwithstanding the mixture of race* that
distinguishes the population of New York city
the residents of this town have distinct traits
and characteristics that are peculiar to them
selves. 110 matter whether their fathers came
from Ireland. Germany, Maine or Louisiana.
And these traits are not noticeable in any
other community that I have any knowledge
of. The first and most characteristic trait of
the New Yorker is the faculty he has of sleep
ing at any time and under any circumstances.
Going down town in the elevated railroad train
in the morning, whether at the hour when the
mechanics and day laborers ride, or later when
the bankers, brokers and magnates of business
generally set out for their offices, look about
von in the cars and I will wager a new hat that
"if there is a bona tide New Yorker who isn't read
ing a newspaper he will be fast asleep. Coming
home at night you can count more men sleep
ing than reading, although these conditions
are reversed in the morning;. Take a cross
town or an np-town horse-ear in the middle of
the d?iv. and I will wager two hats and u four
, in-hand scarf that, if there are five people rid
ing. one will be asleep. I have seen women
fitting on stools in great dry-goods stores at 4
o'clock in the afternoon fast asleep. I have
seen the managing editor of a daily evening
newspaper sound uslecp at his desk at noon. I
have watched truck and car-drivers nodding
over tiie reins in a crowded street, and in this
city at least the chestnut of the paragraphers
about policemen sleeping on tlieir beats has
the proof of actual fact. I don't attempt to ac
count for this chronic somnolence of New
Yorkers. It can't be the atmosphere, for I. an
? adopted New Yorker of some ten years' resi
i deuce off and on. have never felt the drowsy
i inclination in the daytime unless I have been
I kept awake the whole night before. Perhaps
it is the never-let-up struggle for wealth and
| for a living that makes men work more hours
' and work harder than they should in this most
progressive of the toiling cities of America.
They tire themselves out with their daily occu
pation-'. and plenty of sleep is their only re
cuperation.
CAUSE OF UNIVERSAL SOMNOLENCE.
I believe tiiis overwork is the cause of the
almost universal somnolence here. Some men
have been putting up a building opposite my
room during the last fortnight. It is a large
building, to be occupied by a big retail firm,
but to-dav the plasterers are at work on the
walls inside, so rapid has been the labor of
construction. I have watched the men at work
sometimes, and 1 have noticed the feverish
haste each individual workman displays. No
movement, however difficult, is made with
i deliberation. The bricklayers did not set each
brick on the other?they threw them in tin ir
places. The laborers carrying mortar over the
joists to the engine that hoists things to the top
did not walk they ran. The plasterers to-day
strained their necks constantly looking up at
their work above their heads, but they never
stopped a moment to rest, assistants handing
them fresh plaster from below as fast as they
ran short. No wonder that these poor fellows
fall asleep on the way nome at night. And it
is the same in every calling. Kush, hurry,
overtake this fellow here, get ahead of that
chap there, catch this car by running at top
speed because it is thirty seconds ahead of the
car behind it. Take the elevated road instead
of the horse-car to ride four squares because
you will gniii a minute?that is New York. I
thank Heaven sometimes that I was born lazy.
I may not niaKe so much money, but I take a
heap more comfort.
A third trait of New Yorkers is their eager
ness to read the newspapers. There are one or
two good daily journals in this town and some
twenty-odd poor ones, but the poor ones as
well as the good are read with an avidity ap
proaching a downright hunger for print. I
have seen men tight on a Sunday morning for
the last copy of a certain sheet left on a news
stand, and the defeated fellow wouldn't buy
any of the far better journals left in plenty,
but walked a dozen blocks to get the particular
newspaper he admired. It is fortunate for a
good many newspapers that this is a trait of
New Yorkers.
SEW YORK CURIOSITY.
A New Yorker is the most curious of all the
earth's creatures. Certain newspapers, by
delving into private scandals and skeletons in
family and other closets, encourage and foster
this trait. New York women, to all appear
ances well-bred, will stare at any oddity in ap
parel, any peculiarity of personality in another
of their sex. with the most sublime rudeness.
In no other city have I seen well-bred women
evince this vulgar curiosity. A man fallen in
a lit draws a crowd big enough to fill Iowa cir
cle, and a horse down on the pavement will
block the street across from one side to an
other so as to prevent traffic. The clang of the
gong of an ambulance dashing through a street
will till every window on either siae with in
quiring faces and eagerlv curious eyes,
although a hundred times before the same even
have appeared for the same reason, and have
never seen anything but the black wagon and
the galloping horse. If the black wagon were
full to the top with mangled limbs, crushed
heads and distorted features, they could still
see no more than the wagon and horse, per
haps the surgeon and driver, and they know it,
too. but Btill they look, and they always will.
LOVE OF PROCESSIONS.
New Yorkers just dote on processions. A fu
neral with one hearse and four carriages will
draw a crowd of half a thousand, and when the
diminutive cortege moves off at a trot, as New
York funerals are in the habit of moving, the
half thousand pairs of eyes will glisten with
happy satisfaction. The parade of a company
of a hundred uniformed men will be followed
through half the streets of the city liy a crowd,
and a band of music at the head of it will make
a genuine New Yorker wild with excitement.
The New Yorker's craze for processions is
proved by the yearly parade which Barnum's
circus gives every spriug on some Saturday
night. People will secure positions of vantage
on the curbstones long before tho parade of
wagons and caged animals is due, and wait
patiently three or four hours for the sake of
seeing what the average country boy wouldn't
stop his plow team to look at.
BIDIcrLISO SERIOUS MATTERS.
The New Yorker likes to have everything
ridiculed which he docs not understand or
take an interest in, and tho newspapers as a
rule cultivate this trait in their readers. There
are one or two journals which do not. but these
are voted too dull and prosy to read. And,
truth to tell, they are papers which are away
behind their contemporaries in money making.
When a distinguished body of scientists held a
convention hero a year ago there was only one
newspaper that gave a fair report of the pro
ceedings. All the rest regarded the assem
! blage of brainy investigators as a great joke,
and their "reports" were in the main attempts
to be funny over the long haif of Professor
This or the" spectacles of Doctor That, or else
there were comical allusions to the long names
of certain species in entomology and a hint to
the society that it would be a blessing to hu
manity it some scientific light were shed upon
the American bedbug. And the august and
dignified Presbyterian general assembly that
has just been held in New York has been treated
bv some of the newspapers in the same way.
'?l)'ye read that account of the Presbyterians'
excursion down the bay in the Evening ?"
asked one well-dressed gentleman of another
in a surface car last Monday. "Ought to read
it. Funniest thing I've seen in months. Best
paper in New York, that Evening ." There
is more or less irreverence in Washington,
where I have heard young ladies of the up
per circles refer to one house of worship as
"The Church of the Holy Telescope," and to
another as "The Church of tho Holy Checker
board." but for downright determined elimina
tion of the bump of reverence, commend me to
the inhabitant of Manhattan Island. Fancy
the degree of humble piety in a city whose
every church has an undertaker's advertising
sign nailed conspicuously on its front, while
not even the name of the church or that of its
pastor are allowed to be lettered upon the
edifice.
PECULIARITIES OF LADIES.
The ladies of New York have traits dis
tinct and peculiar. To their unconsciously,
ill-bred curiosity I have already alluded. In
shop*, in horse-cars and at the theater they are
exactly like their sex all over the world?
amusing enough to a horrid male philosopher,
but not locally peculiar. On foot, however,
they exhibit one or two noticeable character
istics. For one thing, a born and bred New
York woman never crosses a street except
upon the flagged corner crossing. If she has
come out of a store in the middle of a square
and wants to go to another directly opposite,
she will never crass directly over by the short
est way, no matter how clean the pavement,
but will trip contentedly np to the corner, cross
over on the flagging, and sail with an air of
duty performed down half a square on the
other side. If yon rentore to take a short cat
diagonally across at a street corner, it is dollars
to aoughnuts that your female companion will
drop your arm ana pursue her war religiously
at right angles oa the "cross-walk." And it
ron ask for ? ronton for this peculiarity she
will probably tell too with all naivete ' that
crossings were made to be walked on. One
lady of my acquaintance ssvs that crowing on
the pavement is immodest, and that she would
sootier appear on the street in th? daytime in a !
low-cut ball dress than do it. It would be a
blessing if all the dear ladies of New York
could spend a season in Washington. where
people hardlv know the meaning of the word
??cross-walk.5'
FIRM FAITH I* SEW TORT.
Yon cannot make a New York woman believe
that any fashionable fad. any social custom or
any species of fashionable amusement origi
nated outside of New York. Bicycling has only
recently been taken up by the ladies of New
York, and a fair neophyte on the bicycle was
enthusiastic in telling me the other d*y of the
sport. She painted in picturesque and instruc
tive words the technical principles of bicycling
for ladies, and wound up by remarking that
the pastime was yet in its infancy, but that it
would soon spread all over the country. "Oh."
I ventured, ?'ladies have been riding bicycles
in Washington and in Orange. N. J., for ever
so long. It is quite an old and tried pastime
in many places outside of New York."
"You are surely mistaken." the lady replied,
patronizingly, but sweetly. "The -ladies'
safety' is a new machine, anil they are all im
ported."
I insisted upon my poiut. however, and the
lady probably thought I was a Innatic. or at
least mildly demented. The next day I dis
covered that she had written to a friend in
Washington to find out if what I said was true.
And yet my reputation as a Truthful Janu s
has heretofore been rated by that particular
lady at from fair to good.

Work, Its Own Reward.
Why do we strive to emulato
The mighty deeds that stir the blood.
If all our efforts meet the fat?
Of death, beneath oblivion s flood?
Why are we fired with lofty thought
Beyond tin- grasp of tongue or pen.
If all our work must Come to naught.
If all our sowing yield but j>ain?
I know not; yet would I rather
Lift futile arms against the bands
That compass round my l>est endeavor.
Than idly sit with folded hands.
Fret not thyself, O pining soul.
Because thou ha-t no garnered sheaves,
Because thou hast not won the goal.
Because thy Ug tree yields but leaves.
The Master's eye. takes note of how
We do the work that seeineth near
With all our might, nor question now
If our reward be almost here.
Give heart and haud to what e'er He
Shall scud to thee, though seeming hard;
For you, each task well done shall be
Its own exceeding great reward.

THK >1 Hill TV INITKD STATES.
Justly Entitled to be Considered the
(ircatest of All Nations.
From the London Spectator.
If the United States were a small power, her
"original ideu of diplomacy," as the G? rnian
chancellor's penmen cull it. might be consid
ered a caprice, and passed over with a smile;
but her people are becoming the greatest na
tion in the world. It is probable that nothing
short of actual violence would now induce auv
nation to attack her, while she could, if she
pleased, almost ruin the commerce of auy na
tion on the globe. It is true she has scarcely
any regular army, her 2a.U0U men being over
worked at home; but if a neighboring planet
kept no army, it would not be subject to at
tack. ?
Her coast, if threatened, would bristle with
torpedoes and new means of destruction, aud
her protectionists would be only too pleased if
importation stopped. Her ha\v. though still
small, is rapidly increasing, so rapidly as to be
a subject 01 special reports to the maritime
powers; aud if war Were in immediate prospect,
her limitless command alike ot money aud
men would soon draw a fleet together.
Besides, apart altogether from her existiug re
sources, the growth in the strength ot the
Union affects the imagination of the European
states.
There are children alive who will see. or at
all events may see. the "North American Re
public" with a population of two hundred mil
lions and the meat's of raising three hundred
million pounds steriiug a year; and the idea ol
incurring the enmity of such a power is as ap
palling as the idea of fighting Bussla would tie,
say, bv Italy or Spain. America couid be met
only by a confederation of Europe, which,
without some great change of circumstances,
would be impossible, or possible only if ail Eu
rope felt it too daugerous to put up with the
treatment one power was receiving.
'Ihe union already stands toward the Spanish
and Portuguese-American states in the relation
in which she may one day stand toward Europe
itself. Her foreign othce already claims some
thing like a protectorate over both Americas,
aud desires to wield a preponderating influence
froai the St. Lawrence to Patagonia, forbids
any government to cut the Isthmus of Panama,
and warns Europe, in a president s speech, not
to meddle with auy state "lyiug south of us,"
though it may be 4.0O0 miles off.
