hipeil, lnste.i,l or a el.)c!ii'(e, put in ills
appear.mc nml comment eil to Iminnue the
cniwil, nml ollcieil lo wll u certain klml of
lien, worth til retail say llfleen cents per
ilo.en, anil put one pen in a box at one dol
lar per liox, or per pen, ami promised In
certain boxes the purchasers would find
live dollars, and In oilier boxes less sums of
money, all the way down to very small
sums, and in certain boxes Ihete would no
money be found, but simply one pen. In
doing tins business he assured the crowd
Hint he would not take but ten per cent, of
their money, and that the ninety per cent,
should be honestly nnd fairly paid hack to
the crowd, In very unequal proportions,
after the manner of prize candy, but all
should linvo an equal chance for Hie pri.cs,
and told the crowd that this was just the
chance, nnd he the very man they long had
sought to lead them on to fame and for
tune, and invited the crowd to step In and
try their luck and his integrity. Ho then
nnnounced the nonappearance of the veloc
ipede man, and gave some very plausible
Tho crowd not not seeing any chance for
fun in this veloeipedcstrianism business,
turned their attention to this man of words
nnd wind, who was now in a wagon, stand
ing upright, having 11 kerosene trident
flame, casting n dull, red glare, smoking
like a tar kiln, having in h'u hand? a large
number of greenbacks, which he proposed
to put into boxes nnd sell to the crowd be
fore detailed, witli tho pens. AVliile Haunt
ing tills money in tho face of tho crowd,
the wind blew the llamo and smoke into his
face, giving him n wild, weird and plutonic
appearance, and when I fust saw him with
his fire, greenbacks and boxes, which in
the night time looked at lirst like a piece of
pasteboard, nnd not knowing what the fel
low was driving at, it appeared to me he
was selling tickets for Tophet.
All this time he was furiously lying, tell
ing one lie a minute, and perhaps seventy
five to the hour. He told the crowd that
this was a fair and legitimate business,
and he had practiced it at Rutland and all
the principal towns in the United States
and Canada, with the approval of the bet
ter class of people therein, nnd that tills
was a rare chance to make a large sum of
money nt very small risk, and in which
they could not lose but ten per cent, in any
He made It a condition precedent that
caeli person who bought a box should open
it at the wngon, that all might witness
that everything was fair and just as repre
sented. This suggestion "took" vith some of the
ciowd liaving "faith without knowledge,"
who began to invest, anil as might lie ex
pected the first who bought, drew prizes,
on which part of the crowd g.ued, admired
and wondered. This prize money they
reinvested and lost, nnd bought again and
continued to buy to ascertain whether it
was luck and chance or tilck, and thus
continued until they were satisfied that
something else was "sold" besides pens nnd
boxes or gieen backs.
I do not know of a single person who
drew any money and kept It there may
have been such but I think not.
When the evening entertainment was
over the performer showed the landlord the
nett proceeds of the play to be 43.li0, and
said this was the sum he look, and what ho
realized. Now if tills business had been
conducted ns represented he would have
taken in about .43.'i.O0, and would have
paid back UUl.OO, retaining ns ids com
mission the snug little sum $ 13.50, for
handling this money one evening. Instead
of this result, 1 do not believe all the crowd
eairied away five dollars or even ijl.00
taken from tills professor. I except in tills
estimate tho first purchases of Ikixcs and
pens which drew prizes and which tho pur
chasers reinvested and this was not car
ried away but so much was drawn 'once
There was some curious features in this
business. Thoso w ho lost most were told
befoie purchasing that tho wholo tiling was
n client, and it was fully explained to them
nnd they nrc of a class of men who think
they aro sharp and able to take cure of
themselves, and do not, as a general thing,
placo much confidence in wltat any man
will tell them, and liavu not much faith in
human integrity, anil they know that every
thing they could know nnd reason from
that tlds man was lying at a fearful rate,
and no ouo of all tlds bitten crowd would
have sold this man a sheep worth live dol
lars and taken his note therefor payable in
ten dayfl, well knowing If lie did ho would
loose his mutton,
Yet they gaped, stared, wondered, and
admired this fellow's incohcrcncynnd volu
bility, nnd swallowed Ids lies and btories,
and were mnnzed that mi smart n man
could have lived so long, nnd they not have
heard of him before, nnd they kept their
months open so long that their jaws be
came rigid nnd and one could seo their
"buck teeth" n long distance by tho light
of tho professor's lamp.
It always has seemed amazing strange to
mo that men who think they mo smart,
and aro really sharp in some things, and
cautious in most matters will Indulge In
gambling, betting nnd buying "saw dust
packages," and in ways that niu devious
and In tricks timt are dnik, nnd who while
so doing, have good leason to believe they
will bo beaten and cheated nt every turn.
Horace Greeley in his life timo was at.
ways striving to keep this class of fools
out of tho lire and out of trouble by con
stant and untiring advlco or reproof, somo
of whom lie excused for cause, saying Hint
"A man who 1ms pot common sense, Is not
obliged to use it." Horacojielng dead and
theso Irrnoccnt ones left friendless, I must
take rare of tlicm I Our Castleton nnd Rut
land unfortunates will not wish to bo let
off on the lack of common sense. If this
fellow is to be believed lie bled Rutland
more In proportion than Castleton. He
said he took about $4.10 out of Rutland. I
saw him two nights at the coiner of Mcr
chont's Row anil Centre Street, with his
lamps trimmed nnd burning, nnd his clack
going, nnd he was surrounded by a gaping
crowd who wcie buying boxes of pens and
were watching each other Instead of watch
lug the man cheating them out of their eye
teeth. If any one had repeated the old nmim,
"a fool and Ids money Is roon parted." in
the hearing of any one of llils crowd, it
might have been .deemed both ti lie? and
1 hardly think Hint is true that there is
ns much pleasure in being cheated as in
cheating, still our Castleton friends seemed
to enjoy it exceedingly during tho per
formance, but on reflection they do not ap
pear to be vciy proud of it ns n pecuniary
transaction, and "mum Is the word" with
them when interrogated about it. They
lmvo u very short memory of Hint "eventful
night." Still I think, the most of tnem
would go into the same kind of "gull trap"
set to catch fools differently set nnd baited.
I have the kindest of feelings towards
every person who liought pens or boxes or
experience, and only havo a wish to pass
tlds humbug around, that inexperienced
persons shall not be defrauded out of their
money or deceived by him, in other parts
of the State. This caution may seem en
tirely unnecessary, but this fellow caught
a class of men in Castleton that I should
not have thought could have "taken in and
done for," ns I have described.
Lest this humbug shall think himself
hy ids smartness, I would like to submit a
question that lias perplexed me a good
deal and may lie treated under the head of
"Intellectual Philosophy." It Is this, is
there not a stripe or component part of the
fool In all great elicits or dupes ? I think
there U, nnd to prove this I wih to cite the
Mnuchauscn Stories of Mahomet; Joe
Smith nnd various other imposters, clients
Please let us have an opinion on tills
subject, "Such as is an opinion."
