TUB PUKV OF EXTORTIONATE LAND
Blade rwiuarks that many Americans,
desiring to show their disregard for
money, have been doing it so long and
so extensively that they have made it
inconvenient for those of limited purses
to get nl ng decently. All over the
continent they have spoiled the servants
and the hotel keepers, and caused prices
to be advanced about fifty pet cent, on
all their countrymen. A ho'.ol keeper
looks upon an American as aetrcasure
chest, out of which he is at liberty to
extract as much money as possible, and
he is uot backward in making the at
tempt. And when an American endeav
ON to travel economically he is subject to
a variety ol slights and annoyances, and
will occasionally be tobt that he does j
not behave as 1 ibcrully as his respectable
countrymen- London usod to be better
in this respect, than Paris or Rome, but
it is now quite as bad. The hotels and
lodging houses put on nil sorts of ' extras'
and outrageous charges, nnd frequently
the mnungers do not hesitate to lie tin
blushingiy in order to extort money
from their patrons. I am quartered at
a respectable ho el, overlooking Convent
(jard.n, it was recommended to me ns a
comfortable house, and one where the
? the charges would be just and correct.
I called for my bill yesterday, and told
endeavored to iuducc me to let it stand
until I was ready to go away, but 1
insisted, nnd the bill was brought. |
There were extra charges for things ]
which 1 knew I novcr had, and they
had put on an extra shilling for en:rh '
moruiug's breakfast, alter telling me
that I could order anything on the bill
of fare. 'I hey charge three pence a day
I'm stationery, and make every man pay
lor it whether ho writes a let er or not
I protested, but it was no u-e. It was
their custom, they said to charge three
pence a day for stationery, and a man
might use as much as he" wished. Up
to that time I had not used a sheet oi
their paper, but heoeeferth they cannot
complain that I neglected it. I find it
makes good cigar lights, and when I go
away from hero it will fill up the loose
corners of my trunk very neatly. If
they luakctanythiug out of me ou the
stationery swindel, they must bo wider
awake than I think they are. I paid
their bill under protest, nnd rcmaiued.
Why didn't you go away! somebody
will a.*k- Whut is the use in moving ?
I hare had a row with them, and though
I couldn't get that bill reduced I con
vinced them they would not make much
by trying it on again. I gave warning
that I would not pay for another "extra
nud have been careful to havo none for
which anv charge could bo made. If I
went to unot .er hotel I should have the
I same row t' go through over again.
They are all alike in this respect nnd
will oheat without compunction ci con
science I am in the position of tho
railway superintendent who rcfuso l to
discharge a conductor known to be
dishonest, ou the ground that the man
had already bought a watch, diamond
pin, horse, nud other things out of his
stealings, while the uew man, to take
his place, would be obliged to equip
himself in the s?mo wuy. It is better
to bear tho ills wo have than fly to oth
ers that may be worse, and are certain
to be just as bad.

A correspondent of the Cincinnati
Commercial has been in the Red River
Country, where the black population so
largely preponderates, and the juries
are selected from both races. He says :
"I asked a white man who had had con
siderable jury experience, how it worked.
He said "it worked tolerably well after
a fellow got used to it.'
"Did it take much effort to get used
to it?" I asked.
"Yes, sir, you bet it was the con
foundest hardest thing to get used to
ever you heard of* I haven't got used to
the smell yet. Of n hot day iu n close
room with a lot of fat niggers sitting on
a case, it's pretty hard. Rut we have
to submit, for if some of us white peo
pie didu't go on tho jury it would be all
niggers, and that would be ruin."
"How are the juries divided f" I
"Oh, just as it happens, so there is
some of each race on every jury. Some
times there'b only two niggers, some
times four, sometimes six, and ho met mie
"How are they about agreeing upon
"They are better than tho whites.
The niggcis never hang a jury. When
I am on a jnjy with them, and the suit
is on an account, for instance, I just
figure up the amount, and say : 'Boya.
here, Jones owes Smith so much and
so much and so much, giving tho figures
much, giving figures, which leaves Jones
behind with Smith so much, and that's
what we must ronder judgment for*"
They all agree to it, although they don't
know any more about figures than a hog
does about theology,"
"I'll say this for the niggers," he
continued, "tho? are not stubborn on a
jury at nil; but as far as my experience
goes, they aro always anxious to do the
right thing between man and man "
"When their own color is involved
how is it ?" I asked.
"Just the same. They do not shield
their own people*. They'll hang a nig
gcr for murdor just as quick as they will
a white man, and a good deal quickor.
Sometimes I think they arc a little too
hard ou their own race. Rut I suppose
they fear we will charge thorn with par
tiality. On the whole, a nigger makes
a pretty fair juryman,"
"Was there no great opposition to his
serving in that capacity ?"
"Oh, yes, thunder was to pay for a
while. Whito men said they wouldn't
sit with a niggor, they would die first,
and all that, but they had to swullow
the dose, and have now got used to it.
There is nothing like being used to any
thing is there ?
Masquerading iu Roy's Clothes*
A correspondent at Little Rook, Ark.
writes : That a marshal has just return

custody a young girl named Mollie
Sherwood, who for intervals during the
past two years hss been passing for a
boy undej the namo of Rill Henderson .
About two years age her parents resid

then thirteen years old, nud her two
brothers placed her out to work in a
bo'el at Allenvil e. Becoming tired of
this employment, she donned boy's cloth
ing, called herself Rill Henderson, and
applied for and received a situation ns
post boy to carry the mail to nnd from
Allenvillo. For one year, unsuspected
she fulfilled the fuuetions of this post.
Then her sex was suspected, and at
Allenville she was placed under arrest
nnd compelled to wear the female garb
After this sho tried working in a hotel
as maid servant, but soon tiring of this
again resumed tho trousers and worked
as a farm hand. Subsequently she
came to A gust a, iu this State, as a
drover's assistant, and thence went to
Jacksouport to work in a livery stable.
After a while the man and boys about
tho ?Uble, believing her to be a woman
began to oall her names, * and, as she
says in order to get away from the place
she took certain horses belonging to the
stablemen and madooff with them. The
marshal followed hor and overtook her
with the horses at Allenville and arros
ted her on a charge of horse stealing.
The people there knew her well and
were inclined to prevent tho officers from
arresting hor. Pistols were drawn od
both sides, but fiua,ly the girl went of
her own free will with the marshal.
She is now in the Jacksonpost jail
awaiting trial for horse stealing. Tho
girl is a pretty blonde, and during all
her vicissitudes her virtue has never been
Some years ago a new file oompany
trn* organized at Reading, and the mem
hers one evening thought they would
hare a little innocent fun at the expense
of Hopkins, their president. They de
cided to rush round with tho engine to
Hopkins, house after dark..to throw up
their ladders, pull out their hose, climb
on his roof and scare him with the be
lief that his dwelling was on fire. Rut
the very day Hopkins moved out of the
house and a Presbyterian clergyman
moved in, without the company being
aware of the change. So about eight
o'clock they dashed out, and went
through all the movements, getting on
t he roof and splashing water around and
creating a terrific disturbance generally^
A rival company noticing what was
going on, also hurried to the scene and.
without understanding the joke, attack
cd their hose to a plug, smashed in the
front windows; and began to empty a

Presbyterian clergyman. Thoy sqirted
into all the rooms, split op the window .
shutters with an axe, broke down the
front door, ran out the furniture, tors off
the shiuglcH, and bawled through trnm
pets until tho hitedgirl had convulsions
on the kitchen stairs. The first compa
ny tried to explain, but the new comers
thought on effort was being made to get
them out of the way, and a fight ensued
and presently firemen wero sliding off
tho roof, and pelting down the chimneys
and bleeding over the entry carpet, and
