A FAKIR'S CONFESSION.
PROFITABLE TRADING ON THE WEAK
NESS OF HUMAN NATURE.
Some of the Wicked Wiles of 3Ien Who
Travel with Shows What Is Paid for
the I'rit "leges of Cheating the "Guys"

The speaker formed ono of a eroup who
at at a round table in a "beer joint" much
frequent d by "bhownien." They had been
relating their experiences of last season
"on the road" with "Spangle & Sawdust's
Monster Shows and Triple Conglomerate
Aggregation," with which most of them had
been more or less associated. One had re
l&ted how ho had "downed an old guy wot
was a merchant in der town" by steering
him into a "bunco gama" Another had
delighted his hearers by recounting how he
had "laid out the jays" with a ".jewelry
case." A third gloried in tlio way ha
played "the push back game" on "one o' dom
fly blokes wot thinks he knows it alL"
TLey wore all slangy! They called every
body of whom they spoke "Guys." Some
the more important persons wero desig
nated as "Main Guys." Countrymen were
"Jays," "HayMjjds," Blokes," and "Suck
ers." Money was called "Blunt," "Tin," or
"Cases." "Beer" or other drinks was spoken
of as "Luh," clothes as Togs" or "Harness,"
food as "Grub," con; er&ation as Woedings,"
the verb to sco was rendered "Stag," oyes
were called "Ogles," a hat a "Dicer" or a
"Cady," while ladies were spoken of as
"Dames," girls as "Molls," arguments as
"Guff," clowns as uJoeys," and bank bills as
They sat for some time, each vieing .with
the rest in telling of the smartest trick, a
most cunning device used in depleting the
wallets of the countrymen they had victim
i7ed, until at l-u'ithov began to drop away
one by ono to keep appointments with other
"pals" or to g-t their "giub," until but one
was left lie had been the liiot voluble
talker of the lot, and the reporter, who had
listcnod to all that was said With interest,
resolved to interview him.
A few glas-s of beer and a cigar or two,
with a sandw u-b, sudiced to break the ice
and establish confidence, when the pumping
process was begun.
"How long have you been in tho show
business:" the reporter asked after a shoit
prehmii aiy conversation leading up to the
"Well, about eight years this season. I
began by helping around der menagerie,
fetching water and doin' odd jobs about der
lot Dan I got in wid der candy butihers,
I was hired to peddle lemonaJo on de seats
by der man wot had der privileges."
"What are tho privileges!"
"Well, der piivikges is wot dey pays
der money for to rim on der lot wid the big
show, such as de side hows, der concert, der
candy stands, der sellin' o' tickets outside
on der lot or in der town at a slight advance
on the price at tho ticket wagon, jewelry
cases, weighing machines, and dor fakin'
"You say "the pay for these privileges?"
"1'ayJ Wo.l you kin just bet y our life
dey pay! How much.' Why, sometimes
$10,000, some times &15,00J. Why, I know
one show wot gits f:J0,003 a year for dor
"Which show gets that and who pays it?"
the reporter oigerly asked.
"Oh, I ain't gom' to give any names
away. But what I say goes. You hear
xnol Why, doro's lots o' shows started that
way. A guy gets hold of a lot o' old show
stock, a tent, some jacks and sti ingers and
seats, and don ho goes to a privilege man
and gets him to put in enough money to
tart der show for the right of der privil
eges. Maybe its only a fow bundled dol
lars, if it's a small cross roads show, and
maybe its $15,000 or ?-JO,O00if itft a 'big ag

"Hero's an old faKo." said tho showman,
in the course of tho conversation. "E ery

1 WOtfDER H MEDICINE.
THE DETAILS OF A SERIES OF MOST
The Action of Medicines Upon Hyp
notized Fatients Incomprehensible
Phenomena in Connection with Animal
Magnetism A Problem
Some remarkable discoveries havo been
recently mado by French physicians in re
gard to what they call the action of medi
cines at a distance. The patients experi
mented on havo been those either hypnotized
or capable of being hypnotized; that is, they
could bfl thrown into a sort of magnetic
ilumljer, in which effects could be produced
on others independent of their wilL There is
nothing specially now in magnetism nor in
hypnotism, but tho new facts now elicited
axe of a nature so striking as to render
credible the most seemingly absurd and im
possible cases of so-called mind-reading.
The experiments took place at the School
of Ro -hefort, and in the first place on a
man subject to hysteria. Tbey were tried
after a series of attacks which left him in a
state of extreme nervous sensitiveness. It
was first endea orod to study tho effects of
metals. Silver and lead produced no result
whatever! Zinc, copper, platinum, iron and
steel, being applied, showed different influ
ences, one causing pains, another trembling
and another ascular congestion. But the
contact of gold with the skin had a mo-t ex
traordinary effect, causing an intense sensa
tion of heat A sleeve-button touching the
face or finger of tho patient caused him to ut
ter a cry of agony. Even when applied out
side of his clothing, or with tho hand of tho
physician between tho object and lib skin,
their was the senso of acute pain. Some
times a piece of silver or gold was slipped
into bis Le I witout his kuowlenge. He did
not seem to be aware of tho presence of tho
first, but tho other caused him to twist and
turn till he had found atid ejected it
To shovv that tho pain was not the result
of im lginntion or deception, articles of
aluminum, bronze or other metals having
the appearance of gold were placed near
him without producing tho slightest result
Meicury had tho effect of gold, though
more iolent When a lhermomoter was
applied to the patient's person, though tho
metal wa hermetically scaled in glass, it
caused a violent sensation of heat Ono
day a thermometer was wrapped in a cloth
that bo might not know tho nature of the
object, and placed binder his forearm. The
effect was not only a sensation of burning,
but a blister of the flesh and a Krmanont
wound. Then tho compounds of tho metals
were tried. Chloride of gold, inclosed in a
corkod iiask, had tho offect of the pure
metal. So, also, tho nitrate of mercury,
similarly suaided against direct contact,
while nitrate of silver and carbonate and
sulphate of load, like their originals, had no
effect whatever. Iodine of potassium,
wrapped m a paper and placed under the
forearm, caused yawning and sneezing,
thought the untaught patient, even if ho
had been awaro what tho objects were,
could not possibly havo known w hat physi
cal action they wore likely to cause. Hy
drogen had an effect analogous to that pro
duced w hen it is used medically.
But all these phenomena, though carious
and entirely incomprehensible, wero thrown
into the shade by experiments mado with
medicines under similar conditions. A bit
of crude opium enveloped in a paper was
placed under the head of tho subject In
less than u nnnuto his eyelids closed, his
muscles relaxed and he was in a sound and
tranquil sleep. In ten minutes he awoko of
his ow n accord, rubbed his oyes, yawned
and had all tho symptoms of a person
awaked from profound repose. Tho opium
was then applied to tho forehead, tho back
of the nock, the right and left sides of the
head, the soles of tho foot, and always with
the samo result A small bottle of narceino
caused sleop with the turning of the head to
tho left One of codeino, sleep w ith snoring.
One of nicotine, applied to the right wrist,
convulsions of tho face on tho right
side, and such an intense burning at
tho point of contact that it was nocosary to
remove tho bottle. Choro-hydrato of narco
tino produced sleep with great pain on
awaking. A t ial of atropine placed under
the sole of tho foot caused tho patient, in
three seconds to rest immovable with his
eyes open. Soon tho eyelids dropjxxl, tho
eyes were" convulsed and tho pupils becamo
dialated. Chloral in a papr applied to tho
arm causoJ sleep in less than a minute. A
vial of dn;italis placed on tho s-o'e of tho
foot hi ought on immediate vomiting and
spitting, with a feeble pulse and interrupted
breathing. Tho phenomena al.timed tho
physicians in attendanco they wero -o in
tense. Sulphite of quinine in a vial pi o
duced no JIct, but placed on tho lorohend
caused an intense headache So also with
cafeine, w Inch only w ho l placed on tho arm
caused a violent excitement, w ith pulse and

A SEWING-MACHINE AGENT
Tells the Story of His Success In Paying
for His Hoard In Advance.
"When I first met Jack he was always
flush. In fact he is now, but he is man
ager. J ack was at work then for a sewing
machine house, and had charge of the city
trade. He used to ask me often to dine
w ith him, and I noticed he never paid for
what he got We seldom ato twice at the
fame place, and I began to think his credit
was monumental. '.Next time we go to
Craft's to dine let's take all tho boys in the
otlice with us,' said Jack as wo left a well
known restaurant one day. 'I don't like
the place at all, and I'm anxious to eat up
what ho owes me.' 'Then he owes you
money,' said I, to draw Jack out 'Yes,
they all owe mo more than I'll ever get I
might quit work now and board around
from place to place for two years and not
eat theaccounts up. You see, I once put an
advertisement in a Sunday paper, which
read something like this:
"First-class board wanted for a first-class
ewmg machine, direct from the factory.
" 'Well, I sot over seventy-fit e answers.
I was giten the Lest of references bankers,
preachers and doctors. Most of the letters
wero from boarding-house Keepers and res
taurateurs. They were from all parts of
the city. As manager of tho city trade I
could sell a city machine as a sample at the
wholesale price but I didn't do that I
picked out twenty good restaui ants and
boarding houses, and bought twenty ma
chines on my own account on four months'
time. Tho wholesale price of each inacmue
was $10, and the retail price $5 . Ot course
I paid fl'.t each, and sold them at the retail
pi Ice. At each of the twenty p aces I told
them that it" they wanted a biuud new ma
chine 1 would lot them have one direct from
tho omce for -'0 cash, and would take tho
balance out in boat d. They jumped at it,
especially as the machine was one of the
best made, and I promised to take it back
if not satisfactory. Near three restaurants
I got a suite of rooms on thj machine ac
count In loss than to days I had deli -
erod the twenty machines, had $400 cash in
pocket, with four months in which to pay
for the goods. 1 had $700 to tike out in

The Circle of the .Journalistic Current.
The mysterious and regular circle of the
gulf stream is duplicated in a journalistic
current that I have noticed for years Good
men working for a few years in the east be
come dissatisfied and drift out to the
lrontier, e- ontually gravitating to Denver.
They stay there a certain length of time,
when some nomadic impulse I won't at
tempt to explain drags them to Kansas City
or St Louis. There another pau-e, pet haps
of years, occut s, when the current carries
them into Chicago. From that ci:y thoy
sooner or later wander to New York, w here
the center of gravity seems to exist Of
course this is bamng accidents and the
possibility of getting off at seme such a
siding as Louisville, Indianapolis or Cincin
nati places not on the regular circuit So
general is this swinging around tho circle
that thoro are scores of men now at w ork at
