A COOL SCOUNDREL.
The Peculiar laeaer la WWch a Birglar
craeue a Uaw.
My profession ia not a popular one. There
la a considerable prejudice against it.
don't think mrself it is much worse than a
good many others. However, that has
nothing to do with my story. Some years
ago, me and the gentleman wbo was at that
time connected with me In business be
has met with reverses since then, and at
present is not able to go out was looking
around lor a job, being at that time rather
bard up, as yon might say. We struck a
small country town. I am not going to
give It away by telling where It was, or
whst tbe name of it was. There was one
bsnk there. Tbe president was a rich old
duffer; owned the mill, owned tbe bank,
owned most or tbe town. There wasn't
no other officer but tbe cashier, and they
bad a boy who used to sweep out and run
Tbe bank was on tbe main street, pretty
well up one end or it nice, snug place
on the corner or a cross street, with noth
ing very near it. We took our observations,
and found there was no trouble at all about
it. There was an old watchman that walk
ed up and down tbe street nights, when be
did not fajl asleep and forget IL Tbe vault
had two doors ; tbe outside one was chilled
iron, and had a three-wheeled combination
lock; the Inner wssno door(st lalU-yoa
could kick It open. It did not pretend to
be nothing but fire-proof, and It wasn't
even thatT The first thing we did, of course
was to fit a key to tbe outside door. As
the lock on tbe outside door was an old
fashioned Bacoa lock, any gentleman of
my profession wbo chances to read this ar
ticle, will know just how easy tbat Job
was, aad how we did it. I may say here
tbat the gentleman In my line of business,
having at times a great deal of leisure oa
their bands, do considerable reading, and
are particularly road or a neat bit of writ
ing. In fact, in the way of literature, 1
have found among them however, this be
ing a digression, I drop It, and go on witb
the mala job again. 'ij'i.fil
This was our plan : After tbe key Wss
fitted, I was to go into the bank, aad Jim
tbat was not his name, of course, but let
it pass was to keep watch oa tbe outside.
When any one passed he was to tip me a
whistle, aad then I doused the glim and
laid low ; after they got by, I goes on again.
Simple and easy, yen see. Well, tbe night
that we selected, tbe president happened
to be ont of town ; gone down to tbe city
as be often did. I got Inside all right, with
a slide lantern, a breast-drill, a steel jim
my, a bunch of skeleton keys jfaydji grpa
bane Dag to stow away tbe swag. I axed
my light, aad rigged my breast-drill, aad
got to work on the door Jest over the lock.
Probably a great many of your readers
are not so well posted as me about bank
locks, aad I may aay for ttemtteta ttree
wheeled combination lock has three wheels
ia 1 1, aad a slot la each wheel. Ia order to
unlock the door, yoa have to get the three
slots opposite to eaeh other at tbe top of
the lock. Of course, If yoa know tbe
number the lock Is set oa, you aa do this;
but If yon don't, yoa have to depend on
yonr iageantty. There is ia each of these
wheels a small hole, through which yoa
pot awIreUroughtsMback ofalk
whea yoa change the eomkiaatioa. ' Now,
if y ou can bere a hole throagh the door.
and pick up those wheels by rnaataga wire
taresajh those" bole,1 'whyyea easy epea
the door. I hope I asake my ssirdear. I
waaba that bote. The door was ehlB-

By George !",Tke Idea eaaae to me then.
"Yes, sir," says I. 'teaching my cap;
"Mr. Jennings, he telegraphed to me this
moralag aa the lack was ont of order, and
be couldn't get ia, aad so I'm come to open
It for him."
I told Jeaabafl a week ago," says he,
that, he ogat'ie get that lock filed.
Where Is hoi"
'He's been a jarHiag letters, and he's
gone up to his safest! to get another letter
be wanted to aaaeyer.''
"Well, why deaf! you go right on ?" says
"'rve got ssitioagh; says Ii "and
I didn't wsM to asdahip aad open the
vaatt, till there waa some one here."
"That's very erasBtable to you," says be;
"a very proper aeatimeat, my man. You
cant," he goeaea, coming roaad by tbe
door, "be tsatBartlcnlsr about avoiding
the very iwsplaTiaV eviL"
"No, sir," says I, kinder modest like.
"What do yea suppose is the matter
with the lockJ" says be.
"I doa't rightly know yet," says I ; "but
I rather thiak it's a little wore on account
of not feeing ltUed eaougb. These 'ere
locks ougbtto be oOed about 'once a year."
"Well," be says "you might at well go
right oa, now I'm here ; I will stay till
Jennings comes. Can't I help you? Hold
your lantern or something or that sort f"
Tbe thought came to me like a flash, and
I turned arouad and says :
"How do I ; know you are tbe president
of this bank? I aint ever seen you alore,
aad you may bsa trying to crack this bank
for all that I know."
"That's a very important Inquiry, my
man," says be, "aad sbows a most remark
able degree or discretion. I confess I
should not have thought or the position in
which I was placing you. However, I can
easily convince you tbat it is all right. Do
you know what the president's name Is?"
"No, I don't," says I, sorter surly.
"Well, you'll find it on that bill," says
he, taking a bill onto! his pocket; "and
you see tbe same name on these letters,"
and he took some letters from his coat.
I suppose I ought to have gone right on
then, but I was beginning to reel interest
ed In making him prove wbo be was, and
so I ssys :
'You might have got those letters to put
up a job on me."
"You're a very honest man," says he,
"one among a thousand. Don't think I'm
at all offended at your persistence. No,
my good fellow, I like It I like it," and be
laid bis band oa my shoulder.
"Now, here," ssys be taking a bundle
out of bis pocket, "is a package or ten
thousand dollars In bonds. A burglar
wouldn't be apt to carry those- around witb
him, would he f I bought them In the city
yesterday, and I stopped here to-night on
my way home to place them la the vault,
and, I may add, that your simple and man
ly honesty has so touched me, thst I would
willingly leave them In your hands ror sale
keeping. You needn't blush at my praise."
I suppose I did turn sorter red when I
see them bonds.
"Are you satisfied now?" says he.
I told him I was, thoroughly; and so I
was. So I picked up my drill again and
gave him my lantern to bold, so that I
could see the door. I heard Jim, as I call
ed him, outside once or twice, and I liked
to have burst out laughing, thinking bow
be must be wondering what was going on
Inside. I worked away, and kept explain
ing to him what I was trying to do. He
was very much interested In mechanics, he
said, and he knowed I was a man as was up
In my business, by the way I went to work.
He asked me about what wages I got, and
bow I liked my business, and said he took
quite a fancy to me. I turned round once
In a while, and looked at him a setting up
there as solemn as a biled owl, with my
dark lantern In bis blessed hand, snd I'm
blamed If I didn't think I should have to
holler right out.
I got through tbe lock pretty soon, and
put my wire Iff and opened it. Then be
took hold of the door snd opened the vault.
"I'll put my bonds in," said be, "and go
home. You can lock up, and wait till Mr.
Jennings comes. I don't suppose you will
try to fix tbe lock to-night!"
I told hlm'l shouldn't do anything more
with it now, as' we could get In before
"Well, I'll bid you good-night, my man,"
says be, as I swung the door to again.
Just then I beard Jim, by name, whistle,
and I guessed the watchman was a coming
up tbe street.
Ah," says I, "you might speak to the
watchman, if you see blm, and tell bim to
keep an extra lookout to-night."
"I will," says be, and we both went to
tbe front door.
There comes the watchman up tbe
street,;! says be.) "Watchman, this man
has been fixing the bank lock, and I want
you to keep a sharp look-out to-night. lie
will stay here until Mr. Jennings returns."
"Good-night again," ssys he, and we
shook hands, and he went up tbe street.
I saw Jim, so-called, In tbe shadow ou
the other side of the street, as I stood on
the step with the watchman.
"Well," ssys I to the watchman, "I'll go
and pick up my tools and get ready to go."
I went back into tbe bank, and It didn't
take long to throw tbe door open and stuff
them bonds into tbe bag. Therewas some
boxes lying around, and a safe as I should
rather have liked to tackle, but it seemed
like tempting Providence after the luck
wediasd.. .1 looked at my watch, and see
It was a cjuarter past twelve. I tucked my
tools In the bag on tbe top of the bonds,
aad walked ont the front door. The watch
man was on the step.
"I don't believe I'll wait for Mr. Jen-
nlags," said I. "I suppose it will be all
right ir I give yon bis key V
"That's all right," ssys tbe watehmsn.
"I wouldn't go awav very far from tbe
bank," says I.
"No, I won't," says be; "I'll stay right
about here all nlgbt."
Good-night," ssys I, and I shook bauds
with him. and me and Jim which wasn't
bis right name, yon understand took the
half-put-twelve express, and the best part
Of tbe job' Was, we never heard nothing ol
It. Ii-never got into the papers.

WATTE MrHttt SAaT TH.KN
Hob. Heary WaMersaa, of the LB4svlUe
CouritfJtmniMl fBraishe the Associated
Press -with th feHewtag interview with
Samuel J. TUden:
"I have beea speadtBg a few days at
Greystoae with Gov. TUden, aad, aot
merely because fcls Mead la the wast aad
south have an ever preseat psrseasl inter
est la him? bat becaae his aame at this
moment is upoa the Mpe of poUtteiaaa of
every class all over the eaaatry, I prepos
to give the readers of the CmtrJtral
some particular accouat of him. Wheal
parted from him a year ago, 1 had aever
expected to see him agate; Indeed, I was
so skeptical of the stories coacernlag his
restoration to health as to feel a delicacy
about tatrndiag upon his privacy. He waa
good enough to seed for me aad I weat
over to Gramerey Park la a somewhat sor
rowful, sympathetic state of mlad. My
surprise almost exceeded my graUacatioa.
The old house is undergoing reconstruc
tion aad enlargement on a aeagnlaceat
scale, but the old library Is stiU tbe same,
being held from the hand of the artisan for
tbe last, I take It, as a tribute or affectioa
ste remembcrance or old times, old Meads
and old books. There I found the Govern
or, and if aa apparatlon had stood before
me, I could not bare been more astoaished.
The days of '75, 16 aad TT seemed to have
come back. His low voice was found
again, his eyes were bright and bis cheeks
roy. His intellect as sinewy and clear aad
bis wit as incisive as they were when be
made nothing of riding Blackstone to Har
lem and back, or driving the Kentucky i
bays from Gramerey Park to Greystoae.
He took me all over tbe new house point
ing out the various changes, explaining
the general design and discussing architec
ture and architects with characteristic In
telligence, He quite tired me out, a fat or
Ite and malevolent way be has of punishing
bis friends by climbing long stairs, mean
dering through labyrinths or decorative
art and threading tbe tapestried and fres
coed mazes of corridor and chamber. On
current affairs be talked witb bis usual
pungency and candor. When endurance
ceased to be a virtue, I said :
"Governor, don't you think we have had
enough "of this?"
He smiled and in a dry, half pitying, hair
sarcastic way, replied :
"If you are tired we will go down stairs."
At Grey stone bis life Is of tbe simplest
and busiest. He has a farm hard by and
no end or pigs, poultry and blooded stock.
Or course, I bad to be dragged over this
farm, and th6 devices which tbe old gentle
man put slyly forth to trap me Into some
ungarded treason to tbe butter and eggs
of my blue grass country, were many aad
Ingenious. I stood my ground like a hero,
but It mast be owned that tbe Governor's
farming is like everything he undertakes
thoroughly and well done.
I asked him "whether be tried to make
any money out ot it?" "Ob, no," hi said,
"it is eailer to-make it some other way."
While I was at Greystone not so much as
the shadow, or tbe ghost ol a politician
crossed tbe threshold, or appeared upon
the ground. Surrounded by his nieces and
his books, the old statesman and philoso
pher was as unreserved ia bis conversation
as be oer was, and is always simple and
cordial in his hospitality. One of the
young ladles told me the little ncusehold
bad got throngs over 300 volumes the Isst
winter. The Governor Is a voracious aad
versatile reader, no less than an attentive
and wise observer of affairs, and we talked
or everything rrom Thomas A'Kempls to
Thomas A. Hendricks. He playfully ob
served that the chief objection be had to
tbe election or Mr. Carlisle to tbe speaker
ship was out In some recent volumes pub
lished by one Mr. Froude, there was a sus
picion that be had mistreated hi wile.
Here I must stop. I know tbat tbe pub
lic is mo9t curious to learn what are Mr.
Tilden's views or political affairs, current
and prospective. I have little doubt that
ir I had tbe right to speak I could by faith
fully reporting blm,' make myself at once
entertaining and Instructive, but tbe opin
ions of every mau are bis own snd bis
house is sacred. I never knew any man
more entirely frank in bis intercourse witb
his friends than this sage of Greystone,
but I am not bis mouthpiece, and it is not
for me to come all the way from Kentucky
to New York to do that which be Is so
much better able to do for himself. I can
say, however, for myself, tbat nothing
passed which leads me to modify the opin
ion I have so often expreased, that no pow
er on earth could induce blm to accept tbe
presidency. U. AY.
OUR NATIONAL PARK.
The Northern Pacific railroad now reach
es tbe Yellowstone National Park, and It Is
probable tbat before tbe summer season
arrives, accommodations for tbe reception
and entertainment or visitors may be pro
vided. It does not seem to be remembered 4hat
to Kansas representatives is due the fact
tbat this wonderful land was set apart, years
ago, as a National Park. Ex-Senator Pome-
roy introduced and pressed to its passsge,
some twelve or thirteen years since, the bill
exempting a large body of land In the val
ley of tbe Yellowstone from sale or entry,
and vesting jurisdiction over this territory
as a National Park, perpetually In tbe Na
tional Government. Tbe land t ms reserved
lies in the Territories of Montana and Wy
oming, and is fifty-five by slxty-sx miles in
extent. It Is about 7,000 feet abore sea
level, and must always be unavailable for
agricultural purposes, not only because of
its great altitude, but because or the min
eral character or Its soil.
It is a region unlike any other In tbe
world. No scenery anywhere equal It, and
no other country so abounds In wonderful
curiosities. The grand canyon of the Yel
lowstone is forty miles in length and from
one to three thousand feet In depth. Tbe
lake irom which this river rises Is about
twenty miles Toag and fifteen miles wide.
Cataracts plunge into tbe eaayoa ; from It
depths stars are visible during the daytime ;
jet of hot water Issue from its side ; and
tbe river Itself forms a number of cataracts
ranging from ISO to 330 feet In height.
Tbe whole region abound ia curious and
beautiful sights. Nowhere in the world Is
there sueb a groupiag of tbe sublime, tbe
beantlful, tbe grand ta nature. Haadfed
of geysers project jast quantities of steam
and water In every conceivable form, gleam
ing la tbe sunshine with rainbow colors,
and glistening ia the moonlight with daz
zling whiteness. Hereon every haad are
Inaccessible mountain peaks, ravlaes aad
canyons cut through tbe flintiest rock, col
urans. resembling towers, spires, aneieat
castles and crumbling ruins, all formed of
basaltic rocks ; basins lined with th most
varied colored porphyries; water ia which'
If aa object be plaaged it Is covered with
a calcite as pure as alabaster r depths of
sulphuriou vapors aad stress! eg anriags
thst the plummet cannot sound ; volcaaoes
of mud aad of cold aad hot water ; springs
of a hundred different mineral properties;
and grander, wilder, more sublime aad
varied scenery than can be viewed say
where in the known world these are
some of the features of our "National Won
derland" known as tbe Yellowstone Park.
We anticipate a great rash of slgbt-teers,
tourists, aad health seekers to the Park
during the next few years. July, August

HAVIM FUNWITH MAMS.
They have a great deal of fun oa the
coast of Florida with the sharks. A shark
will swallow anything that Is thrown to
blm, like a politician. People go out on
excursions, armed with small alarm clock
about asbig aa a base ball, and throw them to
the sharks which sport about tbe boat
looking for something to eat. The Shark
swallows tbe alarm clock, which la set to
go off a few minutes later. Pretty eoea
tbe alarm strikes, and as It gets In Its work
tbe shark begins to flounder around, look
ing scared, trying to throw up the clock,
and as he turns pale and ssys his "aiw I
lay me," all the time jumping out of the
water and begging to-be forgiven, tha peo
ple on the boat laugh until their sides ache.
It is rough on the shark at first, bat we
understand some of tbe shark get to tike
It, and many bare been known to flop oat
on tbe shore and go to the jewelry store
and ask for a key to wind up th clock that
I in them. This last may seem like a fish
story, but we got It rrom a witness ia ta
Star Route trial, and it seems aa though tt
ought to be true. Ptcl't Sim.
Your memory I bad, perhaps, but I can
tell you two secret tbat will cure the worst
memory. One to read a subject when
strongly interested. The other it to not
oaly read but thiak. When you have read
a paragraph or a page, stop, close the book,
and try to remember tbe Ideas on that page
and not only recall them vaguely In your
mind, but put them into words aad speak
tbemout. Faithfully follow the two rale
and you have tbe golden key s of knowledge.
Betidea Inattentive reading, there are other
thlaga Injurious to memory. One Itth
habit of skimming over newspapers, SB 'la
a confused jumble, never lo be thought ef
agaiarthui diligently cultivating a habit of
careless reading hard to break. Anotaer is
tbe reading of trashy novels. Nothing's
so fatal to reading with profit u the habit
of running through story after story, aad
