HEAVY YOUNGSTER AT DINNER.
Attempts to Draw Him Into a Conveo
sat Ion A Stroke of Genins.
Last winter I sat opposite one of those heavy
youngsters at a dinner of sixteen plates. JJo
took rather a vivacious young married vo
man in and sat beside her, with his smooth
and complacent face held high in the air, his
eyes half closed and the cornero of his mouth
drawn down. There was an expression of
sevcro reticence and overwhelming reserve
about him. He was about 23 years old.
"I see you very often at tho opera and occa
sionally at dances, Jlr. Burke-Jones," she be
gau, 'but you always come late, and drift off
bofore one has a chance to nod to you." i
'They bore mo."
A pause. Then she continues:
"I suppose 3 ou see so much of life that tho
more modest and unspiced entertainments
which we woman consider so exciting are dull
Another pause. He glances with cold es
teem at tho soup and permits himself to tasto
tho sherry. Tho oysters pass him in silence
while a man across tho table talks to the vi
vacious young married woman. She is ex
ceedingly pretty, and bar black eyes snap
with tho gossip, chatter and lights. She turns
twice and looks at the solemn face beside her.
Then, evidently thinking she has been stupid,
she sa3-s, with a bright little smile:
"Of course you're going down to Jerome on
the opening day."
"3over do tho races."
"Ah! I suppose you go in more for college
sports; most men in your club do, Tin told."
There was such a long wait after this that
my neighbor a sister of the black-eyed
talker suggested that I should rescue tho
earnest little worker across the wa-. Tho
solemn young man evidently did not consider
her last reniaik worth a comment. She
waited and then made anothor dash. He
wouldn't talk about the opera music, tho
clubs, races, colleges or athletics, so sho tried
him on tho theatre. No results. Then sho
asked him what steamer ho had last crossed
in, and he said it was the Alaska.
'Ah, she's a beauty," said tho determined
conversationist. Then she went off into a
monologue and told a charming little story
about a love match which occurred on board
that steamer at least sho said it was that
one when sho crossed in September. Still
the pompous ninny at her silo said nothing.
But she would not give him up without one
more struggle. "With what I've always
claimed since was a stroko of genius, sho got
him off on tho topic of London tailors, and
ho spoko at least twenty words beforo coming
to a halt Then tho hard working little lady
glanced over at us with triumph beaming
from her eyes, and wo felt like applauding
her efforts. But tho dinner was over by this
timo and she did not try her skill with the
reticent 3-outh again. Blakely Hall in
THE LIST OF CARICATURISTS.
All at Work Upon Papers Hxccpt Matt
Morgan, Who is I'ainting Panoramas.
Said W. J. Arkfll, of The Judge, in con
versation tho other da: "I do not care how
mairy now caricature sheets aro started. It
is one tiling to start such papers and quite an
other to tho get necessary brains to run tbem.
There Ls not a single good eaiicaturist in this
countiy that is unengaged to-day. Tho only
good caricaturist w ho L not at work upon any
paper is Matt. Morgan, who is drawing a
salary of $15,000 for painting war scenes for
panoramic shows. Tho artists who have de
monstrated their abilitj in this lino are all
under engagements at tho present time. If
there Ls aii3' good artist anywhere ho can get
employment at good ligures b3r applying at
onco cither to Mr. Keppler or to nryself."
Looking over the lLst of caricaturists, I
find that Mr. Arkell'.s statement is strictly
accurate. Of tho men who have won wide
imputation in this field Thomas Nast is tied
up with tho Harpers; Keppler and Schwarz
inan aro partners in Tuck; Gillam, Zimmer
man and Hamilton have an interest in the
profits of Tho Judge, and Baron Do Grimm,
who draws the Frenchy cartoons for Tho
Evening Telegram, I am told gets 10,000 a
3car from Mr. Bennett for that work.
French artists in this lino aro said to bo ex
tremely quick to catch tho idea in every
field except politic;;. As the political cartoon
is tho great leaturo in tho Uiuted States, few
French artists have leon successful in their
ventures here. Mr. Keppler somo timo ago
brought two artists from Paris to work on
Tuck. Both proved failures, and that has
been tho result of tho attempts of many other
Frenchmen w ho bring their ixjnciLs to bear
on Amei ican subjects. Cor. New York Tri
bune. Tho Whim of a Noted Humorist
One tho funniest sights I ever saw occurred
in a Chicago theatre. Mr. Eugeno Field, tho
brilliant and ncrtablo journalist, camo into
tho theatro lato and dropped into an aislo seat.
Soveral feet behind him was a largo mid
morose looking Irishman, with a nine-inch
mouth (in reiose) and a lambrequin of red
whisker. Ho had tho solemnity of a dysjwptic
Eg3'ptiuu splrynx. A humorous lino was
read on tho stago and tho audience tittered
slightlj. Aftor all their laughter had died
away there suddenly aroso from Mr. Field's
throat a cascade of laughter that might have
been almost anything, from the ecstatic gib
bering of a maniac ourang-outang to th
guttural and unctuous gurgling of a turkey
gobbler In a distant meadow ou a still sum
Tho actors balked, tho orchestral leader
wheeled about in his chair, tho audience's
heads turned and a thousand eyes were turned
on Eugene Field. With an expression of ab
ject horror on his mobilo face Mr. Field
turned around and stared at tho Irishman.
That unhapp3 man saw tho battery of grins
and blurted out a disclaimer in a broguo that
set tho house in a roar, and at tho height of
tho excitement tho whimsical humorist, who
had caused all tho commotion, withdrew
calndj" and went back to his desk to finish
"lile illghts work. When a scheme can bo put
through as cleverly and gracefully as that
was, guying may bo said to become a fine art
