It was one of those peculiarly clear, dry
morninn in October, when the air seems
as crisD and fresh, the sun so stimulatinc
and the city so gay with the butterflies of
laaulon, just commencing to return irom
their summer haunts of spring, forests
All New York was brilliant with the
bright full dresses of the Isdies-the
flash in ir of swittlv-driren carriages, and
the golden autumnal sunshine reflected
from the white marble fronts of Broadway,
from smoolhe, foot-worn flagstones, .said
from great windows of plate-glass, behind
which glowed the products of many lands
the warps and woofs from the looms
of many nations.
In the midst of all this splendor, which
costs us so many millions of dollars year
ly, yet puts just as many millions into
somebody's pocket, stood a young man,
leaning against one of the stone pillars
which ornament the front.. of e Fifth
arenue Hotel. ...
He was tall, stout, of. rather a comely
appearance, with brown eyes and black
hair, but his attire indicated a Tcry decid
ed want of tha milHou above mentioned.
His frock CO.U, of. tiue. brown cloth, wss
frayed out at the warns and edges. Its
buttons were lacking here and there, and
its once glossy velvet collar had begun to
assume a dim, oleaginous tint, which gave
a subdued tone of poverty to his whole
It ia a curious fact, that a wont and
greasy coat-col I&r of black Velvet, goes
further toward making a man look shabby
than almost anything else.
This young man, leaning against the
white marble pillar, twirling a cheap
bamboo cane with an ivory need, was a
very good embodiment of, the common
abstract idea of respectable indignence
the well-educated, cultivated man, made
poor by untoward circumstances, who loses
no Jot of his native self-respect, - ,
A capital contrast to bun was onereu la
the . person of aa old gentleman who was
coming serosa the street from the other
side. This man waa one of those hand

lie was naoitea in a weii-niung iaji
overcoat, wore imill, natty boots of
patent-leather, ana an unexception
able silk hat. His gloves were of the
finest lemon-colored kid his shirt-bosom
of an elaborate Paris pattern, with large
diamond studs, and his ebony sword-cane
had a lop&x set in its richly-chased gold
head, worth as much as you and I put to.
gainer, uesr reaaer f -
The contrast between these two struck
the eve.of the young man, and he invol
untarily watched the approach of the old
gentleman, who was carefully picking his
way over the damp pavement, avoiding
the muddy spots as a good man would
avoid a temptation to do wrong.
' At this moment, two carnages, coming
from opposite directions, scraped wheels,
and both drivers turned to exchange oaths,
either from mouth or eyes. Not seeing
their coune. they drove on with acceler
ated speed the old gentleman was caught
between tnem, ana tn tne twinKie oi an
eye his elegant form was prostrate upon
the cold, cruel pavement, his . fine-tex
tured coat and Russian sables sopping up
the mud, his glossy hat crushed beneath
the wheels, ana a purple gasn innictca
nnon his white forehead, showins darklv
among his .thin, carefully-dressed hair of
it was tne impulse or a tnougnt, quica
as a thunderclap, that prompted the seedy
young man to leave his place, and in row
himself before the Horses of one of the
carriages, the hinder wheels of which
were about to pass over the prostrate man.
Another moment, and tha old gentlsman
was draareed to the sidewalk, pale and
faint but still in the full possession of all
his dignity and aavoir faire.
"My dear boy, you have saved my lift
how can I repay tow "- - - - - -
, "Oome into they bar-room." said the
vonaff man : "nerertoind thanks : wait till

- The oW man, assisted by his young
friend, entered the hotel, and was proper
ly eared for.
Now, then, come home to dinner with
me. I live alone, in Thirty-fourth street,

dering a card. . "1 may ne awe to serve
you. and if so. will leave no atone unturned
to secure any advantage you may ueairc.
The card bore the name of Colonel J.
8L Orme, and- the young man blushed for
tne moment,, at. not Deing posBoeoou m
such a luxury as a card-case.
I have no cards about me," said he, "but
my name is Gordon, Louis Gordon, at your
service.' ; ... '.
Col. St Orme placed a valuable gold
rimmed eye-glass astride his nose, smooth
ed down his clean abaven chin and snowy
mustache, with a hand which, in spite of
nis age. was still - wnite and plump, ana
resraraea Louis closely. -----
- "You are a devilish fine-looking young
man, sir," he said in a simple, earnest
tone; "I like your style very much, and,
egad, air, you saved me from a bad acci
dent, nerhana death. I dont think mv
heal is hurt much, though at my time of
lire a small wouna may prove serious." ;

cure, whose palate had been carefully ed
ucated, and whose means permitted any
extravagance he chose to indulae in.
When the solids of the repast were de
molished, a fresh supply ot wine waa
furnislied, and the colonel leaned back in

handkerchief over bis face, and inhaling
its grateful perrume. - "

It waalate when Louis Gordon left Col.
St Orme's house, after many and repeated
invitations to call again, tie went home,
to his cheerless little attic lodging, in a
htrh state of mental excitement and full
of hope for the future, for he believed the
old gentleman to oe one oi uiose miracu

who are only found in books and plays,
in . which latter they invariably come
down to the footlights at the finale, to join
the hands of the hero and heroine, pat
them on ,tne head,- and -.say, "God bless
you, my . children; take this ana ,te

said some very heartless things, and
hinted even that he had not yet got over
the tollies of his early days, but he can
not be really bad, or the sentiment of
gratitude weuld never shone out so
brightly." .. ..... .
Louis forgot as nine young persons in
tea are apt to, that every man, no matter
what his vices, has his virtues also. It
wss really no trouble tor Colonel St. Orme
to invest a few thousand dollars for a
short time in a speculation which would
pay so interest The writing of a few
letters was not a matter of any great dif
ficulty, and although the Colonel was far
from being an archangel tor goodness, he
was still very witling to do these services
for any one who had saved his life.
The young man became a frequent vis
itor at the house, and was shortly cm-
ployed to copy a quantity of law-papers

while money flowed into his pockets fast

Thus six months rolled away,
Col. St Ornio was not much of a letter
writer, but he contrived to keep Louis
posted up concerning matters of interest
in New York, and especially concerning
Jesse Steyne. Louis returned, once or
twice, to see his benefactor and his be

TALK WITH A SHOWMAN
.About la the Cireaa Bustae
"Why," said Mr. George F. Bailey, a
veteran showman and Ham urn's manager,
"to run this show is-ithe easiest thing in
ute woria. .Every thing moves along wiui-
out trouble or fuss of any kind, and it is
much easier to look put for our 'own con
cern now than it was to -'run a circus
twenty-one years ago. We have more 'peo
ple connected with this show-to-day than
mere was engaged in tne business tnrougn
out the entire country at that time." I first
went into the business with my father-in-
law, Aaron Turner, of uanuury, in 1(548,
and our show was considered one of the
best that traveled.' Our ' tent was about
the size of the tent we now nse as a dress
ing tent or for our menagerie alone. It
was a ninety foot round-top canvas. ' When
we started out we had twenty-four horses,
who not only dragged the wagons con
taining tne parupnernaiia irom ten to
fourteen miles a day, but worked in the
ring at two performances. - Now this show
travels -by rail, and yet we have, .to carry
with us nearly 1 two hundred horses, to do
our work and. carry out the progiamme.
The ring and trained hones don't do any
work at all, excepting such as they do in
the ring, and our goods are transported 'to
and from the trains by' the' rest or the ani
"In those days a circus used to take our
oniy eignt men as performers, in addition
to the . canvsssmen and apprentices, but
here we have on our pay-roll fifty-five per
sons who are drawing salaries ror ring
wont oniy. ana ail or tnem performers.
though some of them do not appear in the
performances, i For instance, Airs. Dock-
rill and Mrs. Jeal, our leading riders, have
their husbands with them, but. they do
nothing but appear in the ring as ring
masters while the ladies are doing their
acts. In olden times we took out eight
performers, because we had to have eight
for the grand entree act " If any of them
jen .some or tne baggage-men wouia be
put in their places and do -the riding in
the entree. " We never hired "new vines
to Ukcr the places - of those that left
These ' eight men would give the
entire show, and X have, often -. seen
it done by -fewer men than that. They
would appear -as tumblers, riders, ring
masters, and in the-minstrels with which a
circus always ended in . those days. The
great features were a good clown and ring
master, and the more fun they could cre
ate the greater the attraction. Then tum
blers were a great feature and riding only
a secondary attraction. In those days all
tne naers used a pad, and it was very
easy to be a rider. A man that could ride
on a pad and turn a somersault was a star,
and sometimes commanded tun a month.
salary, though 'usually not over $30.,. : The
tumblers received irom to f iu a month
for their services, and musicians from $15
to $18. and they helped in creeling and
taking down the 'canvas.' Now we-pay
our people by the week,- and some of our
stars receive weekly ten times the salary
we paiu our best people ior a -montn's
work. A week's salary list in this show
UMlay is larger than the whole capital in
vested to start a show for a season a, that
time. It takes - what would fotrn a- good
sized regiment to run our show to-day.
Mr. Barnum has on his pay-roll connected
with this show about five hundred and
fifty men. ...
"Then look at . our chariots, cages and
wagons. I wont undertake to say how
many we have, but it's in the neighborhood
of two hundred. A dozen - to twenty
would have sufficed to carry us . all over
the country when I' went into the business,
ana now it taxes two nunarea wnen we
travel on the cars. ' Why, we- didnt have
any street narade in -those days, though
once in a while when we came into town
our' band, seated in a rickety old band,
wagon, would play us into town and up
to tne tavern, out this was not always tne
case, particularly when we made a long
jump that is, - fifteen or twenty miles
between two days. Twenty-one or twen
ty two hundred miles' "travel was a big
thing for a season that extended from the
1st of April to the middle of -November.
Now we run all over ' the Northern and
Southern 'states and the Dominion of Can-
ada between 31 ay and October. - traveling
thousands of miles and giving naarly . the
same numbe of performances. '. -
'There is, too,, a vast difference in the
capital employed,, millions being used
now in the circus business where thou
sands sufficed then. When I first went
into the circus business six or eight thou
sand dollars was the capital invested,' and
if we took in $75 to $100 gross receipts
daily, we were doing a good business.
Now it takes $3,000 a day to run the
show, and we can only take in the largest
places, and can't stay there but one day at
a time, whereas in-the old times, -if a
place had three or four thousand, inhabi
tants we would stay two or three days,
and if it was a fair-sized' city, two weeks
would olten be tne lengtn ot a. visit, in
those days there were no newspapers, ex
cepting weeklies, to speak of, and we did
no advertising men, wnne tnat is a pig
item now. In those 'days there 'was no
distribution of big bills all over the coun
try, and to-day our 'paste brigade,' who do
nothing but post bins, numuers tm men.
The wsy we used to advertise tnen was
to send a man out in a single team with
a small bill announcing the particulars of
the show ana the nam.s or the pertormera.
One of each of these was generally tacked
up in the office of the tavern in the town
we were to visit and that was an end to
our advertising, trusting to the gossip of
the town for the rest The horses we
used to have cost $60, and for the same
kind of animals now we pay $350, and
there is the tame ratio of increase in the
expenses in all other departments. When
the first menagerie tuat was gooa ior any
thing began to travel, -my -father-in-law,
Aaron Turner, wss proprietor, and when
he started in 1844. he rented nis .animals.
which were few in number, from the pro
prietor of a menagerie; but after he had
traveled a couiilo.'oft rears, he began to
purchase his sninmls, and owned a host of
them during nis Hie. wnen ue nrst went
out his whole menagerie was carted around
in eigbt wagons,, and now it takes fifty or
more to carry the animals.
"I tell you it's fun to travel with a show
like this. A man gets his meals and sleep
regularly, and it's no worse tnan traveling
as a drummer or wun a ineaincai - com
pany.. When I went into the business we
often had no chance to sleep more than an
hour or two, and then get - a breakfast at
two o'clock in the morning and start on a
trip to the next town, it used to be tough
once in a while when it waa dark and
stormy, and we had to go through a coun
try tnat we anew nuinwg mwui. many. a
time I have had to take a circus,-Tunier's
or my own.-through a country when we
have had to use torches in order to see our.
wsy over the roughest kind of roads,' and
I myself have often gone ahead of the
wagons on foot walking many miles at
night and in early morning, finding the
way for the teams to follow. Often my
men have had to stop and repair roads
and build tempo fa ry bridges so that we
could go along and reach our destlnation
and the times I have met with such an
noyances and surmounted all sorts of ob

wuiui uio AiuicB ui uiis morning copies
from- the Brisbane Oourier. For the
benefit of such -of my readers as have not
seen this account I.may .explain that.it
announces tnat a certain Bignor itotura,
a' gentleman 'who knows a great "deal
about South American botany.-has found
out a method of suspending animation, in
living bodies for an indefinite time, and of
bringing tnem to ine again whenever he
likes,, unless certam accidental- circum
stances prevent 4hei success -of the ex
periment in hand. Aided by , A Mr. James
Grant Bignor Rotura has been operating
on aogs, cats ana - snccp witn most
marvelous results; is the story is true. He
makes a slight puncture in the animal's
cor, tuiu puuis ui a lew urops ol some
South American vegetable extract now
known only to himself, and the dog or
sheep immediately. becomes rigid,' and, to
an present intents, and: purposes, dead.
Then theanimal is put away on a shelf to
keen. Not in this state, however, for it. is
said that the resemblance to death is so
complete that decomposition soon sets .in.
This, therefore, is to. be .avoided . Ly

stone and brittleness of glass, and in this
state the beasts are to -be seat : over to
England or any other country which may
want them. As soon as thev arrive .An

a few drops of the poison injected, and the
animal ' will immediately regain ' con
sciousness and begin to skip and ' frolic
about' Sometimes, it is said, the subiect
succumbs to tha' operation of freezing, but
not ' often. For even such - delicate
creatures as newly-born lambs have been
resuscitated after being' apparently dead

of the discovery is the transmission of the

upon.-r I suppose. ; the t criminal would
not 'object At the wort he could only
die, and if the ' experiment succeed
ed he would probably receive a pardon for
his services.' If Bignor iiiHura gets the man;
he proposes to inject; Jhe poison, put the
felon in. a refrigerator for a' month, .and
then take him out and bring him to rife
again..) The mast ' extraordinary - part wf
the story Is that the signor, believe that
