with a few others, were the sentiments
which brought him the -love and admira
tion ot his business associates.
It would have done your heart good to
see him seated on the box lor nisanernoon
drive. I Danse in admiration as I recall
the picture. Erect and immovable, his
eyes looking straight to the front, and his
whip-handle braced agains his massive

statue by Michael An gel o, or, we will say,
rniaias. AS tne cook irequenny re
marked while standing at the tfont'base-
ment window, "Mr. James is as fine a

to which the housemaid would add, "and
has every bit as fine a leg."
It is no wonaer inn roe generous mis
tress et the establishment used olten to
stand the equipage before the door, so the
neighbors might en)oy the rich spectacle.
It is tme that there were certain incon
gruities in James' make-up. Miss -Edith
and Miss Heloisehad been having a great
row in the drawing-room over this livery
matter, ana it is due to James to say mat
during its progress he kept his eagle eye
dutifully applied to the key-hole. From
this point of view, as he informed the cook,

of the accomplished coaenman to Heioise
to dress, while the lower extremities were
turned over to Edith. Too sec, it was a
chance for them to exest their tastes, Mrs.
Rao-lev. however, as James' mistress, kept
the overcoat and hat monopoly in her own
control. As all did their best independ
ently of the others, the resultant James
came forth a particularly glittering gen
erality. So gorgeous was he that the doc
tor over the way was heard to remark : "If

silver-plated buckles and flesh-colored
stockings of her grandfather. A silk hat
with an annroDnate rosette and a cream-
colored overcoat were supplied by the old
lady. It was Hechpr armed oy three , An

What wonder that James indulged in
wondering admiration at tho power and

astounded the uptown population.

marked to the housemaid in response to
her solicitude for his furrowed brow of
care:. te got an laea, anu mats iue
whole of it,"
To nrenre the reader lor an exposition
ef this idea, the writer will state an inci
dent in elucidation of James thoughts
about ideas in general.
He was showing his subordinates bow
to spread out some horse-trappings upon
the stable floor. "Now. you see," said this
able logician, "I lay te narness on tne
floor flat, like that; why do I do it T It's
because Ie got the taea. ii nauu uae
idea I couldnt do it. But I have the idea
dont you see, and that's why I do it; the
idea is in having the idea."
It will he observed how carefully
James had formed his style of thought
upon that of his wealthy employers, in
the cities of the old world gentlemen in
James' profession copy each other me
chanically; but in America the refined
and cultured groom imitates the noblest
attributes -of his employer (unless that
personage nappena to De a siocK-oroaerk
and is consequently as good as he per
haps a trine superior.
It has taken us some time to una out
what inspiration James had got bold of
when he told tha house-maid that he had
"a idea," but the delay is due to its ex
treme brilliancy; We have been obliged
o tackle it with caution, not ha vine vet
obtained a patent for the divisibility of
thought. . . .
The facts are these: J ames, wno nau a
caiefully nurtured taste in newspaper
reading, and kept himself current in all
the important scandals, had absorbed a
highly picturesque account of those two
exciting affairs in which wealthy young
ladies had eloped with . their father's
coachmen. Being a mu of noble am
bition, these romantic tales had burned
deep into hia soul. Now "the old man,"
otherwise Mr. Baglcy, (wholesale oranges,
Pearl street) had, as we have seen, two
riano-hter. He saw Jerrtha. and he went
one better. To a logical mind like James'
the Inference was easy, nnai wonaer
that his soul clinched the thought that
one of these fair prizes should be bis.
This was James' idea. What the "old
man's" notion was about this period does
not transpire. It was no doubt nxed upon
the price of fruit.

dear James look still more forlorn."
Whenever he got a chance, he worked up
the girls on literature and art, and now
and then made a veiled allusion to geom
etry. At other times he stmcK maniy
attitudes and looked sad. These latter
succeeded best. As for his legs but let
us be patient the mortgage can not yet
be foreclosed. .
Itwas not long before a certain tonclar
sentiment made itself manifest in the ex

were resnonding to the dread gleam of
melnncholv in the vounir coach man's, eve.
Their attentions to his livery were deeply
aflectinir to a soul like James's.. Their fair
hands jerking his uniform into shape, be
guiled him a good deal. "He may or he
may not have missapprehended the mo
tive in incse aueniiuUB, suu uii-u ajjsiu
may." as the doctor over the way again
remarked : but such was the generosity of
his mind that he always gave them credit
for loving Intentions.
- However that may be, James modest,
delicate 'and respectful courtesies to the
voung heiresses must have impressed uiem
favorably. The tender solicitude with
which he bounced them over the cobble
stones, his tearful anxiety lest they should
wet their little feet in walking to the car
riage, and his care for details while tuck
ing the wraos around them on cold days
where undoubtedly appreciated. .
They, too, on their side, were solicitous
about his welfare, and James had soice-
times gone so far as to sneeze when on the
box, in order that be might receive the
young ladies' tender inquiries after his
But hope reached its climax when
Miss Heioise gave him her wrapper to
place around her lovely shoulders, or when
Miss Edith asked him to arrange the folds
or her shawl, "because he had sucn nice
taste." Then James would feel himself to
be an officer and a gentleman, and his
calves would swell with pride and hope to
the size of piano legs.
But there was a difficulty; also ! when
ever did the course of I give it up in ad
vance. Yes, there was a little difficulty.
It was not that the old tluffer was so
much to be feared, for the marriage would
be accomplished before he knew anything
about it: but James could not for the life
of him make up his mind which of the
young ladies he would have. The more
he thought about it the farther off he was
from a decision
Miss Edith, while making some emen
dations to her part of the livery, would
talk to him so charm id gly that he thought
her by all odds the liveliest and moetoe
witching creature on the top of the earth.
Then Mies Helosie, in attending to her
part of the work, did things in such a be
wildering way that he was firmly con
vinced that she "took the cake." By
George! it was awful. ' '
"Vireat HevingS!" jameswouiaexciaim,
i the secret recesses of the stable loft.
"this yer thing gits me bad ; I like the soft
rounded outlines ot Aliss taitn, htr rich
smile, fascinating ways; but when I think
of the fascinating ways of Miss Helosie,
her rich smile and her soft, rounded out
lines, I feel about likewise ; as fcr their
mental arrangements, they're alxmt the
same on DotH sides, it one ot "era only
bad a turn up nose or red hair, then the
other one's goose would be cooked."
This was about the best the poor fellow
could do in a descriptive way. You sec,
he hadn't a powerful imagination for
drawing parallels in female charms. A
dime novelist would have lathered the
hide off of him in the first chapter.
And eo he waited and wailed, fooling
away his precions moments in loving both
and choosing neither.
One day James drew up ta the door
for the usual park drive, determined that
this occasion should decide his fate, if he
had to toss for choice. He bad no sooner
made up his mind to this then down came
the young ladies; ana, iortunatuy, uic
Ostrich was not with thorn. They hesitated
moment on the walk and Edith entered
the carriage alone. Heioise having re
turned to the house for her dog. "Now for
it," thought James. "Fate hasdecidod for
me: I'm going to jump in," ana ne turned
speak to Edith. Then suddenly he
caught sight of certain curious white flut
le rings in iieioise s garments as sne en
tered the house, and he was once more
cast back upon the sea of doubt. Fatal
hesital ion !
At this moment he heard a slight cry
from Edith, and turning, perceived a tall
young man with curled" mustaches rush-

luxuriating in a perfect blaze of buttons.
It was not a policeman, but an officer of
the United States army that is the wsy
b" used to write it out in the hotel books
and Edith greeted him with effusion.
Then Heioise came out carrying her dog,
and at once recognized their darling sol
dier friend, whose curling locks the scalp-ing-knife
had happily spared for the par
ticular occasion. Theyiiall entered the
carriage, and James, more dead than alive,
prepared to pummel his horses toward the
park. - i .

stopping a moment to wipe the perspira
tion from his brow; you see, it was such a
close - sliavo a minute and well, that's
all ; only I tremble to think how small an
Incident may make or mar an empire, or

James furtively examined the officer's
shoulders. "Hevings!" he exclaimed,
"they're an inch broader than mine ; but
I've go the legs, that's sure." It was on
these that he now relied for victory. He
called also the consolations of philosophy
to his aid, and determined to sit steadily
in his place and fice the inevitable. "Af
ter all," he sagely reflected. "I coul I not
have married both of them, and that os
sifer cant neither there'll be one left: I'll
git her, anyhow."
Thus always logical was this cultured
coachman of the avenue.
Arrived upon the mail, the ladies alight
ed for a walk with the officer of the United
States army ; the ' latter assuming charge
of the dog.
James sat nervously upon his box, and
at exactly twenty-six minutes past three
took out his pen-knife and began fooling
with his fingers. This showed that soine
hing was wrong. He had never before, In
his public capacity, been guilty of such a
thing. Not that this little circumstance
has any marked connection with subse
quent events, but it is just as well to sling
in a little romance now and then,:. while
we're about it.
The incidents which immediately Mow

Chapter III. A wanderer on the
Face ok the Earth.
Tha closinir scenes of this sod affair
were '-gathered from statements made by
the housemaid and footman three days
afterwards. It seems that when James re
turned to the stable he remarked to his as
sistant: "Pete, I've had a deep misfortune
happen on me, and I expect I will be
hauled up before the Presbytery: if so I'm
sure you will be good to " and his voice
broke down. Then ne said ; "As tor me, 1
shall retire into a first class decline." "I
think he meant one of the horses," added
the footman, deeply affected. It was
evident that James felt premonitory symp
toms ot a premature discharge.
Then it appeared . that JUr. James fuler-
wards went into the kitchen, where he
"had it out with the housemaid." who had
been deeply affected by James's neglect of
her, .and had been ; laying tor mm r since
i bis tender sunerer toia tne writer roe
full particulars of their little affair, and,
in concluding her narrative. Placed both
hands to her heart in an agony of pain a
gesture adopted irom tne young ladies,
who, no doubt, borrowed It' boldly from
Alillais's picture. -
Thus, happily, does high art get slung
rand among the deserving poor, until

"After his muss with me," resumed the
seductive housemaid, "Mr. Jamej disap

the trouble, and prvlty soon in cotilcs old

there was other winks and rumors which

the old man gits afraid he is robbed, and
up he goes into .James' room, -which Mr.
James is a most honest man, an I there he
seed's sighttoatbuTos his eyes out." The
housemaid pnused a moment. Regaining
controt over her feelings, she proceeded:
"There-was a !ove of Miss Edith's on
the table, and asliinvr of Miss Heloise's
under the bureau', hud other-momentams
from the young bvlfcvwbich I understand

able. So they tumbles the whole lot ot
baegage down stairs and out an the walk.
The old man said everything had been de
cided by a strictly party vote, and poor
Mr. James must go. -
Deeply agitated, the housemaid stopped
at this station for refreshments. But she
was unable, chiefly through the lack of
wind, to continue her interesting narration
with the coherence necessary to satisty the
reportorial mind.'' I -gathered, however,
that about eleven o'clock that night, upon
descending into the. cellar, she suddenly
discovered the lost one. .

The cook aud housemaid drew liim
forth tenderly by the collar, and he left
the establishment quietly and alone, a
wanderer upon the face of the earth.
The writer inquired after James the
other day. It appears thst the respectable
body of tip-town fathers "had refused ; him
at 'any price; his character in full having
been carefully reported at the club by the
old man himself.
.And James is now driving a hark, sta

These catacombs contain, in numberless
galleries, extending under nearly half ol
tne city, me pones oi nearly s.uuu.uuu ol
people. On -ach side of these weird ave
nues. from the floor to the ceilinc. are piled
bones and skulls. The bones of the arms,
legs and thighs are piled in tiers along
the walls, their uniformity being relieved
by mree rows ot skulls and cro 8 bones
arrayed in fantastic patterns, and at Inter
vals, cutout of me gypsum of the caverns
underlying fans, are little chapels or al
tars. At 10 o'clock one morning a few
weeks ago Miss Darling, who was one ot
party ot thirty, descended the steep
staircase ; oi ninety steps . leading
to the catacombs, and preceded by
guides entered the galleries, whose
dangerous and tortuous windings and
ramification have all the perplexities ot a
lubyrinth. Miss Darling, with the inde
pendence of an American girl, quitted her
party and set out to explore underground
horrors alone. Among so many she was
not missed. A. utile oi mis sight-seeing
satisfied her companions, and thev return
ed to the light and to their dinners. In
the meantime Miss Darling was hurrying
through one gallery after another. Unfor
tunately she had not provided herself with
supply ot candies, a .d when the one
sue carneu was uurneu out sne was leil in
utter darkness, and she began to realize
the horrors of her situation. It was then.
so the story runs, that "she did what every
other woman - has done in similar circum
stances she fainted away." How long
she remained . insensible she does not
know; but when she come to herself she
made throughout the remainder of the
day and through - the night the. galleries
echo with her shrieks lor help. D ortun
ateiy, at iu o'clock me next
morning a workman, while passing
along a neighboring gallery, heard
her cries and hurried to the rescue. He
found her in one of those gidleries that
have no thoroughfare and are simply side
passages, and two yards from the spot
where he encountered her was the mourn
of an exhausting shaft, down which she
had only escaped falling by the sudden
ness with which she had tainted, and the
pertinacity with which she remained on
the spot where she fell When at the end
of eighteen hours she' was brought to the
light she fainted again. But "all's well
that ends well," although for a snor'. t:rae
her. situation appeared to be -critical.
There is a moral in this true story, which
it behooves adventurous young women to
heed. In foreign travel whether among
the Alps or the Roman or French cata
combs, or in strange cities where the more
dangerous classes abound, too much inde
pendence of companionship is perilous,
apart from the conventionalism abroad,
which looks askance at a young woman
wandering about alone.

HlMarsUsvr Miarlea Told, by reaCaBaJaa
A New York paper says pouring oil on
troubled waters generally is regarded by
sea captains more as a line sentiment than
as a practical hint to be observed in time
of danger, but as far back as 1770 a Dutch
East Indim trader claimed to haye been
savedfrom shipwreck on a treacherous reef,
by pouring on the sea a jar of olive oil.
Later, another instance is recorded in
which a vessel having been wrecked, In a
hurricane, a cask ot lamp oil,' which - was
kept in a small boat, became broken, .-and
so quieted the sea in the immediate vicio-
ty, mat most or the crew rucceeded in
getting to an island near by.
Captain J arm an, ot the four-masted ship
Romsdal, now in this port, stated to a re
porter, recently, that, although he had
long known of the wonderful effect of oil
poured upon a rough sea, yet he never
had put his knowledge into practice until
his last voyage. The subject having been
recalled to his mind lately by a little arti
cle In one of the seamen's tracts, he decid
ed to test the receipt. He caused to be
made two canvass sacks,shaped like a bot
tle, each having a capacity of about three
gallons oi oil. . These ne niled with conv
mon lamp oil. Soon after in the
middle of the Atlantic he encountered
violent hurrrlcane with terrible seas.
which lasted about twenty hours. The
waves broke over the stern and threatened
to swamp the vessel. Remembering his
oil, he punctured the canvas airs, and
caused one to be towed over each quarter.
The effect, he said, was magical. The
waves, although remaining at the same
height, no longer broke over the stern; but
for several yards round, where the oil had
spread upon the water, mere was apparent
ly a calm. The ship was thus relieved from
the tremendons shocks of heavy seas break
ing over her, and me danger was consider
ably lessened. Captain J arm an thinks
that the use of oil in the case ofa ship
hoveto in a storm, would be a very good
thing. He says that although this was the
first time he had ever tried the experiment,
it was not novel by any means. He had
known cases in which crews bad escaped
from vessels when it would have been im
possible to lower a boat' without its beiuit'
swamped, except that oil was thrown over
the ship's side and the sea thus sufficiently
calmed to allow the boats to be lowered
without danger. He had also seen whal
ing vessels tying quietly while near by
mem while other vessels were violently
tossed about. The whaling vessels were so
thoroughly saturated with oil that the
water remained calm all about them. He
says that the method is so simple and so
inexpensive mat be intends to nave oil
bags always ready for use hereafter. ' -
What Frightens Balms.
The London Times' correspondent in
Zululand gives the following description
of the manners and customs of the Zulus
under fire: Except when in masses, the
Zulu is a difficult being to shoot. When
on the move he runs as fast as a horse can
tering. When halteel he cither couches
under rocks or lies concealed In the grass.
When ready to fire he raises himself, dis
charges the weapon and at once falls fiat

once return me enemy's tire instead
of quietly wailing for the instant
when he rises from his
hiding place to aim xt.-i fire. Firing at
moving objects might tie practiced with
advantage by marksmen and first-class
shots. The best target shots are often in
ifferent deer stalkers. I have myself
seen Zulus jump up within twenty yards
of a company of infantry and half a troop
of volunteers, run the gauntlet of their
fire for a hundred yards and escape
Without examining the actual casualties
caused by artillery fire, the manner in
which the Zulu masses broke up on the
bursting of the first shell proves with what
dread the fire of our guns is regarded.
Indeed, it is quite proverbial. Prison
ers become almost ludicrously excited
when questioned as to what they think of
the "By and by" (the Caffre name for can
non.) "We see them coming through the
air," they say, referring to the shells and
Imitating their hissing noise ; "we get out
of the way ; they pass, strike the ground,
then kill we cannot understand." The
rockets, a few of which were fired on the
20th, with the usual satisfactory results,
are said to have spread st ill greater terror
among the Zulu ranks. They say, "Where
did they come from? We think they
must have been sent from the other side
of the mountain," pointing to a high
range ot hills some miles distant. The
Zulus were observed to shoot the rockets
as they flew hissing through the air.'

Years. ago, . into a wholesome grocery
store In Boston walked a tall, muscular
looking man, evidently a fresh comer
from some backwoods town in Maine or
New Hampshire. ' Accosting" the first
person he met, who happened to be the
merchant himself, he asked :
You don't want to hire a man in your
store, do you ?" ., .
"Well," said .he merchant, I don't
know; what can you do?"
"lro?" said tne man; "i rattier guess l
can turn my hand - to 'almost ' anything.
iY bat do you -want done 7
Well, it I was to nire a man it would
be one that could lift well, a strong, wiry
fellow : one, tor Instance, that could
shoulder a sack of. coffee like that yonder,
and carry it across the store and never lay
It down." . : . .
There, now, capt'n," said the country
man, "that's just me. I can lift anything
hitch to; you can t suit me better.
What will you give a man . that can suit
"I'll tell you." said the merchant; "if
you will shoulder that sack of coffee and
carry it across the floor twice and never
lay it down, I will hire you for a year at
$iihj per mon in."
Done, said the stranger, and by this
time every clerk in the store had gathered
around and was waiting to join in the
laugh against the man, who, walking up
to the sack, threw it across his shoulder
with perfect ease, as it wasvnol cxtremely
heavy, and walking with it twice across
me store, went quietly to a large hook
which was fastened to the wall, and hang
ing it up turned to me merchant and said :
VThere, now, it may hang mere till
doomsday; I shall never lay it down.
What shall I go about, mister? Just give
me plenty to do and $100 per month and
it'sall right." 1 ' . - ' "
The clerks broke into a laugh, and tne
merchant, discomfited yet satisfied, kept
his agreement; and today -the green
countryman is the senior partner in the
firm, and worth a million dollars." . - ,

At a late hour Wednesday evening the
attention of people residing in a certain
locality near the west end of Concert
street was attracted by a man running
through the streets shouting "murder!"
and uttering other exclamations of alarm,
and closely pursued by two others. The
cause of this commotio:., as near as we
have been able to learn, is as follows:
It seems that a married man, doing busi
ness on Alain street, bad been writing
notes to a widow residing in that vicinity.
soliciting an interview with her. One of
these notes was received on Wednesday,.
and invited her to meet him that evening
at a time and place designated by him.
She was directed to carry a white hand-
kercbiet in her hand so he would be able
to identify her. - -
The wi'iow conclude J to meet me writer
of the notes, and visit a chastisement upon
him. She took two young men, one of
whom is her son, into the scheme and
liajj them secrete themselves in the house
while sjo went to meet the party. The
man was on hand at the- appointed hour,
me woman gave the signal designated in
me note, me two recognized each other
and walked to the widow's home, where
the man made known the object of his
interview, and acknowledged having
written the other notes which the woman
had received. . . -j- - - "
About this time the two young men
emerged iroru their biding place, one with
a poker, and the other with some other
weapon, sailed Into the naughty man, and
made it lively for him. In the struggle
which ensued, he was struck over the
head with the poker, inflicting an ugly
gash. He was pretty roughly handled
and received other injuries, though none
of them are of a serious nature. He made
is way out of the house as rapidly as
possible, and went sailing down the street
in me manner described, the two voung
men chasing Dim part of the way home.
In the flight he lost his hat. - This is the
statement of the matter as made by the
woman. The man left town early yester
day morning, and it is not: known what
