NEW YORK LETTER
New York, Oct 18. Among
the arrivals from England on a
steamer that docked a. day or two
ago were the Earl of Leven and
Sir Sydney Herbert
They are quite young and were
clad in the latest .extremes of
British fashion clothing that
stuck to their anatomies from
neck to ankle, hats that rested on
their ears and their collars. The
earl wore tan spats and a watch
on his wrist.
To meet this beautiful and in
teresting pair the ship news re
porters flocked across the deck,
after interviewing some persons
of prominence at quarantine.
The boy ear glared.
"I've been expecting you," he
said, m a most peeved tone. "I've
heard all about you chaps and I
think it's bally rot that prominent
men should be accostea without
"It bores me frightfullly to visit
this country at all, and it bores
me worse to talk to any of you.
This sort of thing wouldn't be tol
erated in England for a minute,
you know. You dpn't know mej
and I'm sure I don't know any of

Then up spoke Sin Sydney:
"Leven's perfectly right," he
'twittered. "I think it's a beastly
piece of caddishness for you
chaps to speak to him. ' So just
stick tha.t in your jolly old paper,,
and we shall be blooming well
glad to get back to England!"
So the ship news reporters
slunk away, properly chastened.
Oh, abso-ballylutely chastened !
Speaking of speaking to peo
ple that one doesn't know, the
game is getting very rocky along
Broadway. The judges used to
let mashers off with a warning,
or a small fine, but of late things
A man claiming to be from
Buffalo, well-dressed and appar
ently sober, spoke to Mrs. Grace
Martin and her young daughter
as they were returning from the
theater to the hotel where they
live. .He followed the women in
to the hotel lobby.
A man who had seen the inci
dent advised Mrs. Martin to have
the masher arrested. She did and
Magistrate House sent him to
the workhouse for thirty days.
He's there now.
"Do you have your shirts done
up at a laundry?" asked Bjrpwn.
"I do' replied Robinson, "and
it requires only about three wash
ings to do them up very exhaustively"
