A FAIR : ATTORN EY.
Alas! the world hos gone awry
Since Cousin Lillian entered college,
For she.has grown so learned I
Oft tremble at her wondrous knowledge.
Wheno'er I dare to woo her now
She frowns that I should so annoy her.
And then proclaims, with lotty brow,
Her mission ls to be a lawyer.
Life glides no more on golden wings,
A Bunny waif from El Dorado;
IVe learned how true tho poet ainjra,
That coming sorrow casts its shadow.
When tutti frutti lost its spell
I felt-some hidden grief impended;
When she declined a caramel
I knew my rosy dream had ended.
Ehe paints no moro on china plaques.
With tints that would have crazed Murillo,
Strange birds that never plumed their backs
When Father Noah braved the billow.
Her fancy limns, with brighter blush,
Tue splendid triumphs that await her.
When in the court a breathless hush' -
Gives homage to the queen debater.
Tis sad to meet such crushing noes
From eyes os blue os Scottish heather;
. "Tis ear* a maid with checks of roso
- Should have her heart bound up in leather;
^"*?is sad to keep ono's passion pent.
Though Pallas' arms the fair environ^
But worse to have her quoting Kent
"When one is fondly breathing Byron.
When Lillian is licensed at tho law
Her fame, bc sure, will live forever;
No barrister will pick a flaw
In logic so extremely clever;
The sherill will forget his nap
To feast upon tho lovely vision.
And e'en the judge will set his cap
At her and dream of lovo Elysian.

A Thoughtless Old Gentleman.
It was the night "rush hour" on the
Brooklyn' bridge trains. More people
were crowded into one of the cars at the
New York terminus than had any righi1
to be there without risking suffocation.
Through the side entrance to th 3 car
came three young and pretty girls,
swept on by the tide of humanity. The
car was crowded, but that didn't mat
ter. In the crush the girls were help
less. They couldn't help being pn shed
into the car, and an instant later ' they
couldn't withstand the countermah
which seated one of them, willy lilly,
on the knees of an old gentleman. In
the jam her two companions were thrust
against this young woman, and pre
vented her from rising. It was not un
til the train was weil cn its trip toward
Brooklyn that the crowd gare way a
little and she was enabled to regain her
footing. She begged the old man's par
don sweetly enough, but to her friends
she said not a word until the three were
safely oat of the car and on the platform
of the Brooklyn station. Then she freed
"That's what I call an impolite'man,"
"Why?" said one of her companions,
"I thought he behaved beautifully. He
didn't say a word."
"That's just the trouble," snajjped the
other. "He didn't have the grace even
to say,.'Keep your seat, madam.' "-New
The Sum to Get Married On.
No man has a right to get married on
less than ?1,500 a year. At least that is
the conclusion reached the other^day at
the close of a long discussion on this
subject. Of course that means if the
mrm is going to take for his brido a
sweet and lovely young, woman, who
while being happily provided for at
home has not been overindulged in ex
travagances, and who has the sense to
know that she can hardly expect a box
at the opera and lots of diamonds from
the young - man who has only so lately
firmly established himself in business.
And even if the girl is one of those who
has known what it is to be out in the
world at work for herself, she can hardly
be expected to marry a fellow who c?m
not do as well for her as she did for her
self. She has managed to get along
beautifully by herself on fifty or sijety
dollars a month, with plenty of nice, sen
. sible clothes, a trip to the theater every
now and then, and every summer, or
maybe every other summer, a mee little
jaunt away, somewhere, to forget the
little unpleasantnesses of everyday office,
life. And the way this money was to go
was very nicely settled too.
Tho young man won't be likely to
have a home of his own to take his win
some bride to, and there is the unfailing
call of the landlord on the first of the
month to be met, and that meeting
means twenty dollars sure, and maybe
more. Sixty dollars will disappear early
in the action by the time the butcher
and baker and candlestick maker's and
some other people's monthly bills have
been settled; $150 a year is placing the
estimate at very modest figures for the
wearing apparel of each during the
year, and when all this is added up
$1,260 is cared for, and something must
be put away for rainy days and doctors'
bids and occasional treats to the theater
and the lake, and $1,500 is gonel Still
there are others who think they can gUt
along first rate with a good deal leis
than this.-Boston Herald.
Twenty Girls Enough.
In the Quaker City there is a well
known business and society man who
pursues a strikingly original line of con
duct In his business he is quiet, reg
ular and industrious, and particularly
prides himself upon the neatness and
accuracy which characterized his books
of account. During the social season
?Je flits about from entertainment to en
tertainment, frequently attending-operas
and playhouses, always having with him
some one of a score of girls to whom he
pays more or less attention. When asked
why he had so many girls he said: "Oh,
all girls talk as they write-very much
alike, but still there is more variety in
twenty than in one. Besides, I keep a
regular set of books at home in which I
enter every cent I spend on them, and it
affords me considerable - amusement.
For instance, I charge cost of theater
tickets, flowers, supper and carriage
hire, and then credit it with the amount
of pleasure I had-'Passable time en
joyed,' 'Enjoyed the evening hugely,'
etc. The girls who afford me the most
enjoyment receive the greater number
of invitations, so I think I may fairly
say tl)at I seek relaxation and piv~?ure
in the same way that I attend to my
business-on a system."-Philadelphia
Odd Custom In Brazil.
A woman lately returned from Brazil
tells of the curious nomenclature of the
streets of Para. They are Biblical or
commemorative of some event in the
Brazilian history. It seemed to her
quite irreverent to be told that a desira
ble location was "at the corner of St.
John the Baptist and St. John the Evan
gelist streets." She went with her uncle,
who was on business, to dine at the
house of a wealthy merchant.
Everything was very gorgeous and
lavish in South American style, but on
leavrng-she was amazed, to have her
hospitable host say to her, "If you
have any washing send it here." It is a
custom there, it seems, for wealthy
households to take in laundry work as
jn employment for their large retinues

A TURKEY DINNER AT WHICH JHE
BIG TURKEY WAS ABSENT. '
How a Crowd of Country Lada Spoiled a
Nicely Planned Feast-Mysterious Dis
appearance of a Roast Turkey - The
Flight of a Tender Morsel.
A .gentleman noted for hie originality
made the following improvement to the
old?ying, "There's many a slip 'twixt
the cupsjid the saucer," the other day
in speaking of a disappointment a friend
of his had experienced in losing his din
ner through missing a train-a dinner to
which he had been invited and at which
he had been selected to respond to one
of the toasts.
The simple missing of the dinner was
more than set off at the old General '
Shields hotel, on the West Chester pike.
A company of twelve Philadelphia^ in
terested in real estate developments had
gone ont in the country for the purpose
of looking about for profitable invest
ments, and had sent word to the proprie
tor of the old hostelry of their coming
and ordered an old fashioned turkey din
ner to be ready at 6 o'clock.
The order put the proprietor in his beet
humor and the entire establishment into'
an unusual flurry of exciting prepara
tion. The hostler hurried to the', nearest
farmhouse, where bs : purchased, thai
finest turkey to be had,, and. carried it
back to the hotel in triumph. Taking
it into the stable he dispatched and
plucked it in great haste. Everything
was excitement in the large kitchen from
the time the order was announced until
late in the afternoon, when the last dish
was ready to be carried to the dining
The news of the gentlemen coming
spread through the village, and every
one felt duty bound to go to the hotel
and see them, and none took a greater
interest in the affair than the boys.,
They had finished their chores unusually,
early and wero promptly on hand long;
before the hour of serving the rapper.;
Of the entire community none felt his!
personal importance more than Dave]
Peters, the colored waiter.
Dave was of portly build and prided
himself in his appearance, and if he had]
a hatred for' one thing moro than any
other, that thing was a claw hemmer,
coat, which he said belonged ;tp.^soeieiyi
gentlemen and not to a waiter, conse
quently he held to the i)T? ^asbio??dl
roundabout jacket. Just before the;
time for announcing that dinner -waa'
ready , a number of the village boys stood
peering through one of the dining room
windows, watching.Dave arrange the:
different dishes on the table and ad
miring the display made by the twelve
napkins in as many cut glass goblets.
After viewing the effects- bf the!
table with a countenance beaming with,
satisfaction, Dave strutted toward the
door and disappeared by descending the
stairs leading to the kitchen, and a few
moments later reappeared, carrying on
a large dish the turkey, done to a lovely
brown and beautifully garnished with
carved roses, sprays of parsley and cel
ery tops. Walking toward tha table he
found that no room had been left for the
central and chief adornment of the
table. Taking the situation in at a
glance, Dave saw his mistake, and hur
riedly set the dish down upon the broad
sill of the window through which the
boys were peering, and began rearrang
ing the table to make room for the
No sooner had he turned his back to
the window than one of the boys softly
and quietly raised the sash, while an
other grabbed the turkey from the dish
and fled across the hotel yard toward
the old stable, followed by his compan
ions. After making room for the large
dish Dave turned around, stepped to the
window, raised the dish and placed it in
its position in the center of the table,
never noticing that the bird had flown.
Going to the sideboard he picked up the
supper bell and gave it a violent ring,
thus notifying the host that dinner was
"This way, gentlemen; this way,
please," spoke the proprietor to his
guests; "step this way, gentlemen,"
leading them through a narrow passage
from the bar to the dining room. No
sooner had he reached the dining room
than his gaze fell upon the empty plate;
when he exclaimed, "David, where- in
the name of General Jackson is that
Poor Davel Never was a man taken
more by surprise. When for the first
time he noticed the broken platter bis
broad smile vanished. In an instant bis
jaw fell and his large eyeballs stared
most frightfully, while his whole frame
shook with a terrible tremor. All he
could say in reply to the abrupt and em
phatic question was, "Dont know, sir;
it was dar, it was dar," and hurrying to
the kitchen stairs he shouted down,
"Yon, Phceby, whar in debTs dat tori
"Go erlong now, yen's got it np. dar

only a mystery to the waiter and cook,'
bnt to the proprietor as. well, who in an
apologetic manner asked the guests to
repair again to the barroom while a
thorough investigation could be mad?.
Every ooo in the house, ??eroding iii?
hostler, waa questioned and croea ques
tioned, yet 'rift light could be thrown on
the mystery. After wasting an-nour in
trying to find the missing bird, and af ter
a consultation with the guests, fried ham
and eggs were rabsti tuted for the turkey.
It was not till two hours later, when
the guests were about to depart, that th?
proprietor learned what had become of
the turkey. One of the boys, more bold
than his companions, carno back to the i
hotel to see how the joke worked, and
thinking the story of the bird's disap
pearance too good to keep,, told it to one
of the men that were loitering about tho
outside of the hotel.
The next morning the picked bones of
the turkey were found scattered about
on the ground back of the stable, where
the boys had, after carving it with their
pocketknives,- greedily devoured \. the
well cooked bira.-Phfladelphia Times.
Scott Enjoyed Being Lionized.
Sir Walter Scott is an example of a
great man, who, so far as we can judge,
enjoyed paying the penalties of bis
greatness, even in his hour of death. He
was great enough, but then he was that
kind of a man, and the circumstances
among which he lived were favorable.
That was before the day of the penny
post, of the .electric telegraph, of rail
ways and of the interviewer, and in his
prime he lived at Abbotsford, which is
equivalent nowadays to saying that he
lived at Joppa. He seems to have been
singularly free from the penalties cf
greatness, which have enormously in
creased since the Wizard of the North
went home, and such of them as came
in his way he seems to have heartily en
Ee appears now and then to have
relished being turned into a raro show,
and to being pointed at wherever he
went as Walter Scott. Indeed this be
ing pointed at seems to have been rel-'

undoubted. Thackeray seems some
times almost to have resented not beiaf
pointed at.-All the Tear Bound.

Absurd Though It Is, It Is Taught la
the Pabilo Schools.
How many persons know that New
York city has a dialect all ita own, and
one that it maintains in purity by teach
ing it in the public schools? Many per
sons have commented cn the precision
with which a Nsw Yorker caa spot a
stranger the instant the stranger under
takes tb pronounce the name of the prin
cipal streets in the town. We call it
Broadway, emphasizing the last sylla
ble very strongly. It appears to be quite
a trick to do thia, and it is evidently an
unnatural pronunciation, for we notice
that the very great majority of stran
gers say Broa-wa. So we spot them on
the instant and-ask them from what
part of the country they hail', just to
show them that there is something about
them that is not citified, and to set
them puzzling about whether it is in the
shape of their hat, or the style of their
shoes, or what it ia.
People from the south betray the fact
by calling our Houston street "Hewston
street," as that name is pronounced from
Texas to the Chesapeake, but we play
as strange a trick with another name,
for we call Coenties slip "Quincy slip."
As no one would do that naturally, we
detect strangers by'hat pronunciation.
The name of Hoboken is another that
we trifle with,, calling it Habbueken.
Bat in ways and bywords other than
these I caa pi ok ont a Hew Yorker any
where that he and I may meet, whether
lt be ia Boston or in the Hooky moun
tains; I can do this by noticing how he
pronounces th? "ur" sound in such
words as birth, bird,' earth, heard^etc.
All the rest of the country pronounce
those -rords bnrth, btrrd, urth and hurd.
Not so the New Yorker. He is care
fully taught not to do so in all the pub
lic schools, as well as by his parents at
The queer little twist that enters so
largely into our language in marring one
of the sardinal Bounds that compose it is
thus expressed by ovr tongues; ur-yith
is how we, say earth, bur-yid .is how we
say bird. We say hur-yid for heard

who were born in New York have heard
the publia school teachers in sis ting upon
this.' peculiar twist, commanding the
pupils to put on the trademark as fight

their feudal masters. Most of us, too,
have heard nies, careful little girls on
the way home from school correcting
careless companions by insisting that

Ot all th? senseless and unmusical and
bad things that are done to English that
one of the worst, because ono expects
hear a language at its best in the
greatest city of a country, and thither
foreigners repair to study English and
then perhaps to go back home and teach
it with a whole lot of little tricks like
that in their heads, to be solemnly taught
and scattered, until no one knows where
the mischief will end. Of course I do
not want the reader to understand that
Very nice people murder the language
in these or any other ways, but the great
masses of New Yorker?, those who get
their learning in the public schools and
whose tongues were trained in old New
York homes of the middle class-those
are the victims of this most peculiar
habit.-Cor. Providence JournaL
Apropos of round shoulders, I decided
the other day a? I sat in a great public
gathering, drawn from all parts of the
land, that what we need most is not more
currency, or lees taxes, or a new banking
system, but a law to enforce sitting np
straight. Take 100 Americans-men and
women, and you could not find enough
good shoulders among them to make up
a table at -whist. This defect of car
riage used to be thought peculiar to the
rural districts. It is not so. City peo
ple show it less, but this is due to the
cunning of their tailors, and not to any
virtue of their own. '
I am opposed to meddlesome legisla
tion, but I should welcome the appoint

and compel the populace to sit and stand
erect, as the old worthies of the Puritan

were enacted, in two generations we
would not know ourselves-or rather
our descendants-so great would be th*

A FORTUNE FOUND IN SOAP.
How a Brakeman Discovered a Swede's
Mr. Runey, in conversation with a
number of travelers, told the following
story, which he says actually occurred
in his presence while en route on a Great
Northern freight train near Morris,
I boarded a freight train at Han
cock, (he began) en route to Brecken
ridge. There were about forty hobos on
board the box cars. I arranged with
three brakemen to make the rounds and
see if they couldn't be made to put np
for their ride. I acted the part of the
conductor, while the trainmen followed
ont my instructions. We went from
one car to another until we had visited
all but one. Few failed to comply with
our request, but showed hostility, and
would doubtless have taken the advan
tage of our small number had I not pro
vided myself with a gun, which pro
truded in full view from my coat pocket
The last car we visited was partially
loaded with lime, and between the bar
rels we found two Swedes who handled
the American language in the most hu
morous manner. We informed them
they would necessarily have to pay for
their ride or get off at the next station,
to which the spokesman replied: "Vwe
don't gat no muny. Vwe bane com from
Kort Docota, und vorfc purty hard and
gats no muny."
' "Where do you want to go?" subed
a brakeman. .
"Vwe vant tu KO to Mainopolis."
"You are beaded in the wrong direc
"Val, vwe go tu Brekenridgc und vwe

The brakeman was not satisfied with
the Swedes' statements that they were
moneyless, so they were searched.
While the searching was going on on?
of the Swedes said again: -
"Vwe don't gate nu muny. Sopuse
vwe ly 'bout laddie ting liko date?"
The brakeman, being satisfied that
there was no money on their persons,
was about to withdraw from .the car
when^he discovered a small bundlo in
the corner of the'car tied'upwith a
handkerchief. The bundle was ex
amined. A pair of old socks and sev
eral rags wero tightly wrapped around
a piece of soap about three by six inches
in size. The brakeman said he guessed
he would take the soap anyway, as he
could use it himself. Here the Swedes
made a robust protest, saying, "No,
vwe don't vant you tu take dote sope."
"What good is the soap to you?" asked
""Vw? vant da sope for vash widbafur
vwe gate in Main op o Hs."
"What do you expect to do in Minne
applis?" said the brakeman.
"Vwe tank vwe ville -gate' leadle vork
tu du dare, as a ba prutty gud? tonn."
The brakeman then said he would do
the fair thing and only take half the
soap, to which the Swedes begged ear
nestly for him to leave'the soap. The
brakeman took the cake over his knee
and. broke it through the center, and lol
to the amazement of all, a twenty dol
lar gold piece rolled put. . By this time
the Swedes were nearly wild, and their
ejaculations were side splitting in the

$200 in gold coin, consisting of twenties,
. tens and fives, taken out - The Swedes
had ; adopted this . Estrange method of
safely disguising their possessions} ; but
as^nwortune had it, their novel idea
failed. It is needless to say that the
