STORIESOF THE DAY.
Avery itnuir' story wu told iup, say* a^writer In tbe Pitta bur* IMapalrk, by the^editor of a weekly paper pnlilislief 1 in New^York, not Ioiir- urd, eoneernincr a con^^tributor. Tlie editor aaki: ^One of my^most valuable eoutributorM for tlie lust^three or four year** baa been a gentleman^whom the publie know pretty well by tbia^time. . He writes orer bis owu name^a^striking name. So regularly haa tbia per-^aon written for my paper that I came to^regard bim as a member of tlie staff. It^waa only after two years of acquaintance^through the maila that be actually nut in^an appearance at our office. The 11 rat^time be came in I thought be waa a book^agent or bill collector until lie mentioned^bia name. Then, of course, I gave him a^chair and all tin- other courtesies at my^disposal. He only staid a minute or two,^and aeemed very nervous all die while he^waa aittiug opposite me. He lackid that^spleiitlitl assurance most writers possess.^His appcaraucc lieliefl his work, which^waa vigorous and s|^arkliiig ill style, for a^meeker, meaner sort of man 1 never saw.
Tlienext time he |^iiil me a visit lie^was writing a novel for us anil came with^an installment of it I hap|M-ned to he^reading the proof of the chapters to be^published ill the issue of the next day. At^once it occurred to mi' to ask the author^to explain a passage which bail puzzled^tlie proof-readers and me. So 1 handed^tbe proof-sheet to the author, and point^^ing to the passage in question aaked bim^if that waa exactly what he had intended^to say.
Tomy surprise,^ continued tlie editor,^^the novelist grew very red in tlie face,^bia hand in which was the proof-ahect^trembled, and for a moment lie said noth^^ing. I had no idea what emharrasacd^bim, but thought I had a very rare bird, a^modest author, in my cage. To encourage^him Iaaid: 'I've no doubt it's my stupidity^and no fault of yours that I cannot catch^tin- meaning of that passage.'
Heseemed to ne going to apeak once or^twice, but bia lips only moved. Meanwhile^bia face remained Hushed and other elo^^quent signs of diaturbance were not want^^ing. Hia silence waa making the situation^very painful, and suddenly bethinking^myself that I might have wounded a sen^^sitive spirit I began in a clumsy way to^apologize to bim for calling bia attention^to tbe unfortunate paragraph, but be^atopited me with a motion of bia hand and^in a low voice Is-gan: 'Tin- fact is, air,^I have deceived you^this story is none of^my writing. I never wrote a line in m,^life haven't got tin
'Uoyoumuatito say,' said^^that I've heen fielding with an iiiipoatcr^all these years a literary thief, a pre^^cious^1
'Not quite so InmI as that, air,' he re^^plied more calmly,' 'although I've put my^name to a great many manuscripts which^you have been good enough to buy, and^which I now owu were not written by me,^yet I believe you will not he so indignant^when you learn who did write them.
'May I have the pleasure of knowing^who the author is'.^ said I, with all the^irony I could summon.
'Certainly. My wife,' he replied,^quickly. 'I neyer wan in favor of the use^of my name, but she insisted that the re^^viewers and newspaper itaragrapliera tiad^^harpaned their knives to keep down the^rising crop of feminine writers, and that^she could write more boldly over my name^than over her own, anil with less criticism^of a ao-culled moral sort.'
'Well, to cut a long story abort in the^last volume, the facta were exactly as my^*im|^ostcr' stated them, and I very soon^after made the acquaintance of the fair^author. She still used Iter husliand's^name, but lie ia no longer so meek and^nervous when he Outers my den. A great^burden ia off bia mind.
HowAlfre.l Klein Karnrd ^ IMIar.^Alfred Klein, who made a bit as P. -lican^in McCaull's revival of ^Falka,^ i. few^seasons ago, ia an Englishman by tiirtb,^and about 15 years ago was a wandering^street singer, saya tlie New York Sfnr. He^drifted to Saratoga* where Ilia really good^voice, together with his spirit of manly in-^deiM-iidciuf, secured for bim favors not^usually accorded others in bis line. While^Klein waa in Saratoga the Ken forth row^^ing crew came from Kngland and were^defeated on Saratoga lake by tlie famous^Ward brothers. This roused the English^blood in Klein and lie issued a challenge,^which resulted in a race in mud acowa^across tlie Narrows at Saratoga lake h^-^t ween some boys for a silver cup bought^by local sportsmen. Klein won the race^and waa very proud of his victory. He^claimed that Ins trophy was the first cup^ever won on American waters by an En^^glishman.. .
Tlierewere plenty of sporting men who^were amused by the lioy's talk, anil |wtr-^ticulurlv so by his opinion of Tom Suyors,^tbe English pugilist. ^ me day Klein cx-
5resscd himself rather forcibly about^lohn Morrissey as a fighter, and his hear^^ers said that lie would not dare to talk in^that strain to Morrissey's face. Klein said^he would, utid to prove it the entire party^went to Morrissey's house, a few blocks^away. While Klein went to the floor the^sports waited near by for the OVtMMi
Mr.Morrissey came tt^ the door-and^looked flown in surprise at the I my. ^Well,^my little iiiuu, what can 1 do for you ^ he
Mr.Morrissey,^ said Klein, ^1 was^talking with some men flown here and I^saifl that I thought Tom Sayers was a bet-^ter man than you. They saiil I did not^flare to tell you so. Now. Mr. Morrissey.^1 think you are a pretty gissl man, but I^do think Tom Sayers could lick you. '
Morrisseylaughed outright, gave Klein^a dollar, uml was the hitter's friend ever^after. _ _ _
