ON A MISSISSIPPI STEAMBOAT.
Struggle for Wealth Almost Equal to
Wall Street Frenzy.
A young f low, n fellow passenger,
was leaning uron the rnll beside me,
looking upon the scene below. He told
me to watch nnd he would show mo
somo sport. Ho drew a dime out of
his pocket. Ho waved his arm to at
tract tho attention of tho negroes
uown upon tnc lower deck, and then
ho flung the coin. It fell tinkling, nnd
rolled between two cotton bales. With
yells, tho negroes rushed at It tumul
tuously, piling over ono another, n
tangled mnss of waving arms and legs,
whenco Issued muffled groans nnd
grunts. Then, suddenly, the mass dis
solved again Into a mob ot rousters,
gaping up at us with rolling yellow
eyes, and heaving chests and dilated
nostrils. Ano' ler piece of silver
twinkled In tho nlr and fell nmong
them. Leaping a. d grabbing, tho
negroes snatched at tho falling coin,
then plunged again into heap.
By this time others of tho passen
gers had heard tho nolso and tho
scuffling, nn I soon quite a crowd was
gathered along tho rail. A shower
of change began to fall upon tho deck
below and Iito tho crowd of now
half frantic blacks.
It wns a comical spectacle. A
little while before the negroes had been
quietly busied about their own affairs;
a handful of cheap sliver had fallen
among them, nnd in less than a mln
uto their small world was transformed
into a pandemonium. I have heard it
said Hint tho same phenomenon occurs
sometimes on tho stock exchange.
Our Funny First Engines.
If our modern railway engines had
tho same power to laugh that they
have to scream, they might, as you
children say, "nearly die" laughing
over tho way our first railway en
gines looked. Little, queerly shaped,
puny things they were. Tho Stour
brldgo Lion didn't weigh one-twenty-fifth
part of tho welrht of an englno
of to-day. and it lo' d as if peoplo
might well hesitate about risking their
lives behind It. It was (list used at
Honesdale, in Pennc. lvanla, and it
ran on wood n rallc wm, n thin layer
of Iron on them. Peoplo gathered from
near and from far, that 8th of August,
In the year 182!), when tL. little Brit
ish Hon of lr m nnd steel wns to m ko
its first run. The wiseacres shook
their heads and prophesied all sorts of
probable dlsistcrs, and people said
that "nothln., on earth" could tempt
tliem to ride ncross the brldgo span
ning tho Lncknwaxen river on "that
thing." But the little l'"n went safely
over tho brldgo and over the eight. or
nine miles of track, which was t..o
entire length of this line of railroad.

Down to the Last Move.
Tho capitalist a't luncheon espied
his broker nt the next table.
"Our now corporation our silver
mine how's it doing?" he asked.
Tho broker looked up from his tor
rnpln and champagne with a frown.
"Poorly, poorly," ho replied.
"Shares not moving?"
"Not moving worth a cent."
Tho capitalist whistled thoughtful
ly. "It really looks," ho said, "as though
rto'd havo to begin mining if wo want
to make an) thing out of this invest-rent."
BROUGHT DOWN SWELLED HEAD
New Englander'o Self-importance Giv
en Severe Shcck.
Tho discussion had turned upon tho
subject of "swelled heads," and former
State Senator John Ford told tho
"In a little town In New England
there was once a n an who had a great
idea of his own importance. He had
tho worst sort of a swelled head, and
thought the town could not exist with
out him. He had held town ofllce3 and
sincerely believed that no one dis
charged the duties of those offices as
ho had. Ho had also helped the town
materially by giving it money for
various purposes. But ho was not
content with the thanks of the towns
people for his services. Ho believed
that there should be somo distinct rec
ognition of his worth to the commun
ity. So one dny at a town meeting he
asked permission to bo burled In tho
town plot In tho center of which the
town linll stood.
"Tho Town Councillors laughed and
the petition wns tabled. The follow
ing year he petitioned for the same
thing, nnd again it was tabled. The
third year the same thing occurred.
"Tho fourth year tho chairman of
the Petition Committee arose and
said: 'I have here a petition frora tho
Hon. Mr. B , asking that ho may
be burled In the town plot. I move,
gentlemen, that wo grant this petition,
provided the petitioner Is burled there
next week.' The ration went through
amid shouts of laugltter and tho peti
tion was never again presented."
