TUB PREY/ OF EXTORTIONATE land
A writer from London to the Toledo
Blade remarks 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 along decently. All over the
continent they have spoiled the servants
and the hotel keepers, and caused prices
to be advanced about fifty per cent, on
all their countrymen. A hotel keeper
looks upon an American as a. treasure
chest, out of which he is at liberty to
extract as much money as possible, aud
be is not backward in making the at
tempt. And when an American endcav
ors to travel economically he is subject to
a variety ol slights and annoyances, and
will occasionally be told that ho does
not behave as liberally as his respectable
countrymen* London used to be better
in this respect, than Paris or Rome, but
it is now quite as bad. The hotels and
lodging houses put on all sorts of 1 extras'
and outrageous charges, and frequently
the managers do not hesitate to Ho un
blughiugly in order to extort money
from their patrons. 1 am quartered at
a respectable bo el, overlooking Convent
(iard n, it was rccummcudcd to me as a
comfortable house, aud one where the
the charges would be just and correct.
I called for my bill yesterday, and told
them T preferred to pay weekly; thoy
endeavored to induce mo to let it Stand
until I was ready to go away, but 1
insisted, und the bill was brought.
There were extra charges fur things
which I knew I never had, and they
had put on an extra shilling for ea rli
morning's breakfast, alter telling lue
that 1 Could order anything on the bill
id*fare. '1 hey charge three pence a day
I'm stationery, and make every man pay
lor it whether be 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 ho* wished. Up
to that time I had not used a sheet ol
their paper, but hencelVrth they cannot
complain that 1 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 niakejanything out of me on the
stationery swiudel, they must be wider
awake than I think they are. I paid
their bill under protest, aud remained.
I Why didn't you go away! somebody
wiil a>k.. What is the use in moving ?
I I haro bad a row with them, aud 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
ibat 1 would not pay for another '-extra
aud have been careful to havo none for
which any charge could be made. If I
went to another hotel I should have the
same row to go through over again
They arc all alike in this respect and
will clu-it without compunction of con
science. 1 am in the position of tho
railway superintendent who refuse 1 to
discharge a conductor known to be
dishonest, on the ground that the man
had already bought a watch, diamond
pin, horse, and other things out of bis
stealings, while the new man, to take
bis place, would be obliged to equip
himself in the same way. It is better
to bear tho ills wo have than fly to oth
cis that may be worse, aud are certain
I to bejust as bad.
Are ladies aware that tho waterfall

Cat order of women in Japan, whoalways

wildest portions of Africa, as the draw
ings made by travelers invariably show,
chignonn are worn, and the more danger
ously wild tho women, the greater tho
chignon. In Jupan, also, it has been
obsorvod, the less a woman haa inside
her head, tho more she manages to ar
raiii/i outsido of it.

His name is "Furlong."
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 a hot day in a 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 didn't go on tho jury it would be all
niggers, and that would be ruin."
"Row are the juries divided ? I
"Oh, just as it happens, so there is
some of each race on every jury. Some
times there's only two niggers, some
times four, sometimes six, and sometimes
"How nrc they about agreeing upon
"They arc better than tho whites.
The niggeis never hang a jury. When
I am ou a jnjy with them, and thesuit
is on an account, for instance, I just
figure up the amount, and say : 'Boys,
here, Jones owes Smith so much and
so much and so much, giving the figures
much, giviug figures, which leaves Jones
behind with Smith so much, aud that's
what we must render judgment for-"
The}- all agree to it, although they don't
know any more about figures than a hog
docs about theology."
"I'll say this for the niggers," he
continued, "thoy^ are uot stubborn on a
jury at all; 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 nhicld
their own people. They'll hang a nig
i gcr for murder just as quirk as they will
I a white man, aud a good deal quicker.
Sometimes 1 think they arc a little too
hard on their own race. But I supposs
they fear we will chargo them with par
tiality. On the whole, u 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. White men said they wouldn't
sit with a nigger, they would die first,
aud all that, but they had to swallow
the dose, and have now got used to it.
Thero is nothing like being used to any
I thing is thero ?
Masquerading iu Roy's Clothes*
A correspondent at Little Rock, Ark.
writes : That a marshal has just return
cd from Allenville, Mo., having in his
eustody a young girl named Mollie
Sherwood, who for intervals during the
past two years hss been passing for a
boy undej the name of Rill Henderson.
About two years age her parents resid
ing in Cupe Girardcau, died. She was
then thirteen years old, aud her two
brothers placed her out to work in a
ho'el at Allcnvil e. Recoming tired of
this employment, she donned boy's cloth
ing, called herself Rill Henderson, and
applied for and received a situation as
post boy to carry tho mail to and from
Allenville. For ono year, unsuspected
she fulfilled tho functions of this post.
Then her sex was suspected, and at
Allenvillo she was placed under arrest
and compelled to wear the female garb
After this sho tried working in a hotel
as maid servant, but soon tiring of this
again resumed the trousers and worked
as a farm band. Subsequently she
came to Agusta, iu this State, as a
drover's assistant, and thenoo went to
Jncksouport to work in a 1'very stable.
After a while the men and boys about
the stable, believing her to be a woman
began to call her names, * and, as she
says in order to get away from tho place
she took certain horses belonging to the
stablemen and madooff with them. The
marshal followed her and overtook her
with the horses at Allenville and arrcs
ted her on a charge of horse stealing.
The people there know her well and
were inclined to prevent tho cf&oors from
arresting her. Pistols were drawn on
both sides, but fiua,ly the girl went of
b er own free will with the marshal,
She is now in the Jacksoopost jail
awaiting trial for horse stealing. Tho
girl is a pretty blonde, and during all
her vicissitudes her virt ue has never been
Some years ago a new file company
/ras organized at Reading, and the mem
hers one evening thought they would
have a little innocent fun at the expense
ol 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. Hut
the very day Hopkins moved out of the
house and a J'rcsbyterian 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
the roof and splashing water around and
creating a terriGc disturbance generally.
A rival company noticiug what was
going on. also hurried to the scene and.
without understanding the joke, attach,
cd their hose to a plug, smashed in the
frout windows; and began to empty a
two inch stream on the family off that
Presbyterian clergyman. They sqirted
into all the rooms, split up the window
shutters with an axe, broke down the
front door, ran out the furniture, tore off
the shingles, and bawled through tram
pets until tho luted girl had convulsions
on the kitchen stairs. The first compa
uy 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 wcro sliding off
tho roof, and peltiug down the chimneys
and bleeding over the entry carpet, and
having boisterous encounters with span
ncrs and brass horns on the stairs. And
the next morning that Presbyterian di
vine and bis family moved out. They
:.aid the place seemed to be too animated
and sensational for a quiet dornestio
circle. They wanted a house whera
i h^re was calmness and peace: where
they could havo rooro security for their
privancy and pianos, and for their front
doors and shingles, aud pcaoo of mind

"Bill Arp" writes; "Gentlemen, there
is one thing about drinking. I almost
wish every man was a reformed drank

knows what a luxury cold water is. I
have got up in the night in cold weath

the water to my lips, it was tho most dell

"I have stood there and drauk until I
could drink no more, and gone back to

myself from my inmost for ever touching

promises, and broken thorn within a day, -
Hut if you want to know the luxury of
