RESOURCES OF THE BILL-POSTER.
Tfi? Qualifications Necessary to Sticking
. Up St oets?Technical Terms.
* Bill-posting, like editing a paper, is
something that every one think she can
do, and yet not one in 10,000 is qualified
either by nature or education to be a
bill-poster, as plebian as the title may ap
pear. It is a business requiring capital,
?; energy, tact, perseverance, patience, gall,
good temper, firmness and a shrewd
knowledge of human nature. To Mac
be th'a question, "Who 6hall be wise,
amazed, temperate and furious, loyal
and neutral in a moment?" the man who
knowB liim would unhesitatingly answer:
- "The bill-poster."
He' controls miles upon miles of bUl
' boards which have to be built and paid
for; he controls acres upon acres of
^ dead wall space in the city which have
to be rented from the property owners
or lessees; he cajoles thousands of his
fellow-citizens out of hundreds of thou
?^.?ands of window spaces, and yet is
deemed by the chronic deadhead ticket
seeker ft benefactor. He use oceans of
paste made from hundreds of barrels of
flour to stick tens of paper into attract
ive positions, where the details will be
spread so prominently that he who runs
may read. To see him in his diplomatic
r capacity, watch him entertain a crowd
crowd of advance agents for coming
shows, each one of whom insists on hav
ing his "paper" up first, and on securing
control of the very best "stands" in .the
city, He will converse familiarly, even
jocularly, of "three-sheets," "dodgers,"
"snipes," "hangers," "steamers," and such
things in a manner which would puzzle
the faculty of Harvard and make Rich
ard Grant" White howl with agony,
thinking the English tongue was being
ruthlessly butchered to make a Pitts*
A "stand" is composed of eight, ten,
twelve, twenty or more sheets of litho
graphed or printed show paper,
each sheet measuring 34x38 inches.
A "hanger" is a long printed announce
ment for displaying either indoors or
out, and measuring about 14x36 inches,
while "window work" comprises the
lithographic pictures, colored or plain
(the picture, not the subjects), which
adorn the show-windows of saloons and
other places where the public most do
congregate. "Snipes" are those od 1 lit
tle specimens of typography which so
grotesquely ornament the curbstones, tel
egraph poles and other out-of-the-way
places. With the "dodger" all are famil
iar from the frequency with which they
have tried to dodge the boys who insist
on thrusting them into the hands of pe
But all this, though showing the inex
haustible resources of the bill-poster in
technical knowledge by no means dem
onstrates his industry, delicacy of touch,
and wonderful capacity fdr grasping a
coign of 'vantage on some burned out
building, suburban barn or isolated house
of which the walls are controlled by a
crusty and conservative proprietor.
"Watch him as he handles wet paper on
windy days with a twelve-foot brush,
and judge if it does not require a manip
ulator more careful than the layer of
gold leaf or the tuning of an jEolian
harp. Listen to him as a persuades, ex
ports, flatters, and sometimes, it is to be
feared, steps slightly beyond the strict
confines of the truth to secure an inch
and appropriates several square yards of
display space, and you will acknowledge
that bin-posting is indeed a great busi
ness, and one whose followers are indeed
born, not made.?Pittsburg Chronicle
The Indians Unacquainted with Iron.
Dr. Andree, of Leipzig, discussed be
fore a recent meeting of the Anthropo
logical society, of Vienna, tho question
whether iron was known in America in
pre-Columbian times. Meteoric iron was
certainly in use among certain tribes
and the Eskimo, but Dr. Andree thinks
that they were wholly imacquainted
with the art of forging iron. This con
clusion is based on the fact, among others,
? that while there is ample proof that
the Indians (the author under this term*
is including the Mexicans and Peruvi
ans)-knew how to obtain and employ
gold, silver, tin, copper, quicksilver, etc.,
we hear nothing of iron mines in the
history of the civilization of ancient
America. The language itself proves
this, for there is no expression for iron.
Moreover, in pre-historic, or rather pre
Columbian, graves, especially in the rain
less regions of Peru and northern Chili,
ornaments of all kinds, weapons and
implements are found; but no objects in
iron have been discovered, although the
Indians placed their most valued articles
in their tombs. Meteoric iron has, how
ever, been found in several mounds in
Ohio, both in a natural state and ham
The Misfortune of Plain People.
Owing to the consciousness of their de
fects it is too often the misfortune of
plain people to be maladroit. They hesi
tate, they stammer, they stumble over
their own feet, they do the right thing
at the wrong moment, or vice versa: and
they are always in other people's ay.
This does not explain, however, the
?^passion to be conspicuous which seems
to possess many of tho class. "Why
should they wish to make their eccentric
unloveliness conspicuous ? Yet it is the
plain people whom one sees oftenest on
the dummies of the street cars and in
prominent public places. It is a disease,
or simply unaccountable personal ob
stinacy ??San Francisco Chronicle.
Pulp us a Substitute for Lumber.
Furniture manufacturers have had
their attention directed by enthusiasts to
the pulp question. It is argued that
pulp can be used as a substitute for
lumber in the manufacture of furniture
and other articles now made exclusively
of wood. By mixing tho pulp with clays,
steatite, asbestos, plumbago and mica,
substances of every possible color and
compactness may be produced. It is es
timated that only about 20 per cent, of
the limber felled reaches economic uses,
while if the sawmill were combined with
the oulping and pressing processes all ths
material in the trunk might bo available.
THE MALACHITE STUDS.
"I am going to tell you a story of real
life," said a friend to me in the club tho
other night?a friend who has lived in
many countries, and seen very mnch of
"Many years ago I was living in a fur
nished apartment in Paris. One day my
Bervant brought me the card of Mr.
Charles Dumont. The name was not
known to me, but I told him to show tho
gentleman in. A tall and very good-look
ing fellow entered. He was extremely
well-dressed, and I noticed particularly
that he wore three very handsome mala
chite studs, and sleeve-buttons of the same
material' He addressed me in a frank
and hearty manner.
" 'You do not know me, Mr.-' he
said, 'but we ought to be well acquainted,
for I am a nephew of your old friond CoL
Charles Merritt, of Now Orleans, and I
have heard him speak of you so often and
so warmly about yon, that I can not re
gard you as a stranger.'"
"I was extremely prepossessed by the
young fellow's appearance, and delighted
to meet a countryman of good connections
and with time on his hands,
"We soon became very intimate, and
were much together for some weeks
thenceforward. Dumont was a very ac
complished and agreeable man, and I
found him most excellent company.
"One day, returning from a journey I re
ceived a call from a sergent de ville. I had
no idea what ho could want with me, but
I soon learned.
"'Pardon, monsieur,' said he, 'I am
sorry to trouble you, but do you know one
M. Charles Dumont?'
" 'Yes, very well,' said I
" 'May I ask if you knew him well in
"I was about to answer that I did, when
I suddenly recollected that I did not know
him well in America. So I said, 'I knew
his family and friends there, very well.'
" T regret to inform you, monsieur,' said
the officer, 'that he is in custody, and that
his extradition for the crime of forgery is
is demanded by the United States, Will
you go with me and see him?'
"Of course I assented, and in a short
time, and after elaborate formalities, I
was taken to a cell in the prison of St.
Pelagic, where I found my new acquaint
ance apparently in excellent health and
spirits, and jauntily wearing his malachite
" 'I am sorry to see you hero,' said I,
'How can such a shocking mistake havo
" Tt was no mistake at all,' said he,
Btanding erect, and with perfect coolness;
T am guilty!'
"'Good heaven. What do you mean?' I
" T will tell you,' said he. T have de
ceived you. My name is not Duracmt at
all It is Ashley. I am the son of an
English gentleman, and lived in Wisconsin
until a place was offered me as clerk in a
commission house in New- Orleans. My
work was hard and my salary small;
but I always dreamed of the day
when I woxdd be rich and assume
my rightful position in Bociety.
In this direction I was desperately ambi
tious. One day the devil tempted me. I
wa3 sent to the bank with a check for $14.
The humor seized mo to alter it, as a
joke, to one for $14,000. I did this in the
presence of the cashier. I assure you I
had not the slightest idea but that the
teller .wouid notice the alteration, and
take the thing as I meant it. To my infin
ite s'trprlse he handed mo the $14,000.
When the money was in my hand, it sud
denly occurred to me that my opportunity
had come. A steamer was to sail for Ha
vana in an hoar, and on that steamer I
took my passage, having just time to reach
tho wharf, without luggage. From Cuba
I went to Spain, then came to Paris. I
have been here some time. I have stayed
too long, and stfppose some one has thus
recognized me. No matter, I have enjoyed
myself to the full, and now I must
pay the piper. I have only
one favor to ask of you. I am
a gentleman. Do not let me be ironed, I
give my word not to jump overboard or
try to escape in any way. And, by tho
way, of the $14,000 which I brought here I
have just $1,000 left. You will Audit
hidden behind the pier glass in my apart
ment, where it escaped tho vigilance of
the police. It will just about suffice to
pay the bills of which I hand you a list,
and I beg you to attend to this matter for
"There was little for me to say. I
promised to do what he wanted, and I
,bade him good-by. In a few days he was
"Three years later I was seated in my
house in St. Louis when a gentleman was
announced; and, to my surprise, in walked
Mr. Ashley, alias Dumont, neat as a new
pin and wearing the malachite studs. I
looked at him in speechless astonisbmentl
" T thought you were in the penitoniary?*
" 'Oh, no!' said he, T was only in jail, and
I have never been tried. The cashier of
the bank died suddenly, and there was no
one to prosecute. The jailor and I became
great friends. He was a know-nothing
aud a tremendous partisan, and much in
terested in that movement. I wrote
articles for him, and was useful to him in
many ways. One day he said to me, 'The
door of this jail is open. Why do you not
walk out?' I did so, and here I am. I have
no money and want to earn an honest
livelihood. Will you help mo to do so?'
" 'Dumont,' said I, 'you can not possibly
stay here, with a crime hanging over you.
There is just ono thing for ym to do. I
will buy you some sclothes, and pay your
railroad fare to New York. I will write
you a letter to a man there who will at
once forward you to Gen. Walker in Nic
aragua, and I will give you an introduc
tion to my friend Hemingsen, who is with
him. Throw yourself heart and soul into
the service, and you ought to be an officer
in three months. If thoy succeed you will
be a patriot and a hero.' He grasped my
haud and thanked me warmly. I kept my
word, aud thought I had done tho best
possible thing for him.
"About six months after, when I was
still in St. Louis, the card of a well-known
lawyer, in offloial position, was brought to
me. This gentleman showed some embar
rassment in addressing me Finally ho told
me that a frLnd of mine had become inti
mate In his family, and that he would like
to know something from me about him. I
should mention that this gentleman was
the brother of two young ladies who after
ward attained much celebrity in the liter
ary and dramatic world. I asked him the
name of the person to whom he referred,
and he said it was Delorme. I assured
him that I knew no person of that name.
" 'You must know him,' said he. 'He
talks of you as could none but an intimate
"We argued the matter for some time,
both of us being very persistent. Suddenly
a wild idea crossed my mind. I asked the
gentleman if the man who claimed to be
my friend wore malachite studs, and, lo
and behold, be did! It was Ashley, alias
Dumont, alias Delorme, whom I supposed
to be serving bravely with Hemlngsen. I
then discovered that he was very Intimate
with the two young ladies to whom I have
referred; had won the affections of one of
them, and had become engaged to herl
"When I explained matters to my visitor
he was terribly enraged, and vowed ven
geance against the man who had deceived
him. I wished to aid him, and persuaded
him to promise to use no violence; to be
guided by me, and to go with me to New
York, where his sisters and my old ac
quaintance then were. He did go, and we
took rooms near his sisters. I knew very
well the one who hod become engaged, and
with the freedom of an old friend I
told her tho truth about her fiance. Sho
received the intelligence with surprise and
3orrow, but, womanlike, did not believe
me. I learned from my friend thut as soon
as I left his sisters Ashley went to them,
and persuaded them that I had slandered
him from motives of jealousy. I knew the
fellow was still in the house, and I bribed a
"porter to place in his hands a note from me,
telling him that he had better meet me at
my rooms at 11 o'clock the next day. I re
ceived, in due course, a reply, saying that
he would bo there; and he came on the
minute. My friend, the brother of the
girls (I will call him Sam), was with me,
bnt let me do the talking.
"Our friend of the many aliases was
looking very well, and, as usual, wore the
malachite studs. When I taxed him with
his perfidy and duplicity, he broke down
and wept bitterly. He acknowledged how
wrong he had been in winning the affec
tions of an estimable young lady whom he
could not possibly marry.
"Finally he agreed to sail for Europe
next morning, and leave her to forget him.
He said 8150 would cover his expenses.
With that in hand he would solemnly
promise to take himself off and make no
further trouble. Sam at once handed him
double the amount; and I fully thought
we had got rid of him forever.
"Judge of my astonishment when, next
morning, Sam burst Into my room, his
hair actually standing on end, and in
formed me, amid oaths and lamentations,
that the man had indeed gone, but having
twice as much money as he expected, he
had token both the sisters with him! This
Is a fact. He married one of them, but she
subsequently secured a divorce from him.
The other married a famous artist.
"In Europe fortune favored him, and he
was quite an important man in France i
under tho empire, and was once sent to
London by the emperor on a mission.
"Not long ago, if you will believe it, I
met this man face to face on Broadway,
looking extremely well, faultlessly dressed, 1
with the ribbon of the legion of honor in
his button-hole, and still wearing the
malachite studs. He insisted upon salut
ing me, and was as affable and frank as
"You have done me great services in
time past,' said he, 'when I was down and I
you were up. Fortune is sure to change.
Now I am up and it may be that you are

delighted to reciprocate. Here is my
band, and I beg you to command me in all ,

A War Dance of the Semlnoles.
My friend Moore also witnessed a war '
dance in which over fifty braves partici
pated. While they were forming in a :
ring, preparatory to commencing the I
dance, the chief hid himself in the densest '
portion of the hummock, and no one dared
approach him. In the meantime the sol
emn, measured minuet began; in deep,
chest tones, the warrora sang the song of j
battle, their voices rising from a low wail
in a minor key, to a roar liko that of an
Suddenly, without the least warning, the
chief came bounding into the ring. Tho
circle widened, leaving him plenty of room |
for his wild leap3 and gyrations, and the
yells of tho excited savages rose to tho
highest pitch. The chief took a stick of
Boor orange wood, or. the end of which ,
was a carving of a man's head; thrust.'ng 1
this in the ground in the center of the cir
cle, he drew his long, bright hunting knife,
brought it down upon the carved head,
and went through all the motions of scalp-1
ing. Then rose the death song. After the
scalping was ended, the panting braves
subsided, and proceeded to stow away an
incredible amount of venison.?Will M,

The Health of President Cleveland.
Since Mr. Cleveland entered the White
House he has gained forty pounds in
weight. His rapid increase in weight,
considering his already great physical
proportions ?when he became president,
and considering also the great mental
strain that his official duties necessarily
keep him under, has led to the remark
frequently of late that ho was peculiarly a
subject of an apoplectic attack. He
greatly resembles Mr. Manning in physi
cal proportions, barring the dissimilarity
in their size. His neck is very short and
thick, and his breathing is at "times la
bored. Local physicians havo been say
ing since Mr. Manning's prostration that
the president is almost an ideal subject of
apoplexy, and the opinion is common that
unless he shall relax tho tensions of his
executive duties he will within another
year becon 3 tho victim of apoplexy.?
