ALL WRITE STORIES.
THE OVERSTOCKED CONDITION OF
THE CHEAP NOVEL MARKET.
Chat with tho Munsg?r of u Leading
Now York Story Paper?The Heaps of
Manuscript That Are Keeicved Dally by
"No Stories Wanted," reads the large,
red-lettered sign at the entrance to the
publication office of a leading New York
story paper. On the plaster above are the
following words traced in pencifc "Who
ever goes up this winding stair shall ne'er
come down again." Bewies these discour
agers, tho whole region about the entrance
wears an extremely uninviting appear
ance as though the purpose were to deter
aspirants for "continued story" fame from
entering. To a reporter, who inquired if
these precautions had the desired effect,
the manager of the concern said wearily:
"Not altogether; that sign protect ns in
some degree trom city people, although
some of them disregard it; but against
mail invasion, we have no means of de
"My assistants and I are the hardest
worked men in New York. Our chief
duty is to repack and return the heaps of
manuscript we receive daily, and I assure
you that it is a work of no little magni
tude. Dozens of stories of varied length
come to us every day by mail or express.
They come from every section of the coun
try and from persons in nearly every con
dition of life. Of course it is impossible
to examine all the manuscripts, but we
must return them with polite notes, any
how. Why return them!" Well, if we did
not the circulation of the paper would
drop off in do time, because all these
would-be contributors are subscribers, and
if we were thus to offend each one how
long do you suppose we could continue
business? Every reader nowadays con
siders himself capable of writing a novel
if he once puts his mind to it. I have no
doubt that there- is not a tolerably edu
cated man or woman In New York to-day
who does not firmly believe that he or she
could make a good living by the pen were
the necessity to arise. It seems that most
of those who send us stork's are of that
class?people who liave been reduced in
circumstances and take to writing in order
to increase their meager incomes.
UOAlil'lNO SCHOOL MISSES.
"But these!:re not the only ones who
shower their favors on :is. Stories come
iu from young men and women who care
nothing for financial recompense. They
write just to see their names in print and
to be able to show off their productions to
friends. School girls are our especial per
secutors. Not a week pusses that we
don't receive a work of fiction from some
feminine boarding school, with a deli
cately scented iiotc*iuforming us that the
author .has determined to allow us to pub
lish her first work and that compensation
is no object. Young school teachers arc
even more troublesome. They rate their
productions so highly and cater into such
minute calculations about the pay that
their letters would be amusing if they
were not so numerous. We do not even
escape tbe attention of persons who lack
the ability to spell correctly. In fact. I
believe we have been favored with the lit
erary products of every class of humanity
excepting, perhaps, laborers and kitchen
"Do you read any of the manuscripts
"Very seldom. Were we in need of mut
ter to iiU'up space we would probably ex
amine the more promising of the works
submitted, but every story paper has its
regular staff of writers who contribute all
tho matter that is wanted. These writers
have been selected from the men and
women who had already made repututions
by publishing successful stories. We can
not afford to give space to new people of
whom our readers never heard. It is true
that we occasionally accept brief poems
and one column articles of interest from
unknown writers, but most of these
would-be authors are above such trivial
work. They are satisfied with nothing
less than a twenty-week serial."

at present, not only in the sioi-y papers
but in published books as well. This is

cause men are taking to the graver
branches of literature as becomes their

Croso for Prelpht-Cor Ntimbor?,
"Car numbers! Ob, who hasn't had that
disease some time during the course of his
traveling career!'' queried a nervous chap
on the Omaha limited of his seat-mate.
'"Before [ went ou tho road," he con
tinued, "I lived at Park Ridge, a suburban
station near Chicago, on the Northwestern
road, and :isi<l to ride in and out every
day. I got to noticing the figures on the
fre-ght-cars as my train passed along, and
finally it got to bo a mania with me. The
moment I got oa a moving car I was at
the window looking out for the number
"Are you cured}"' interrogated his com
"Wait and you will see," replied the
nervous man. "I thou :ht of the numbers
by day, and actually dreamed of them by
night. My main desire in that connection
was to see a consecutive series. I was al
ways on the lookout for the number, ]$,
345, and if I saw such a number I believe
I should have been perfectly satisfied. Ho
interested in the search did I become that
I conversed with train men about it and
thenlearnen.it was a regular' mania
among the traveling public. The train
men have it, too.
"Out on the road I went, still looking
for the number. I happened to be out at
Denver, Col., one very hot day in June.
I got on the Kansas Pacific east-bound
train, and had just taken my seat
hi the sleeper when the train pulled
out. I was at the window, and I
there before my eyes was the number
12,345.' It was on a blue car. That cured
lue. I never look at the car numbers |
now. If I chance to be looking out of a 1
window and see a freight car, the feeling
is strong to look at the number, but I re- I
strain myself, something that I could not j
do before, as I know how much I suffered
in the past."?-St. Paul Globe.
Five Kxaspcriitln? Street Nuisances.
In strolling along the sidewalks of Chi- J
cago I meet with live exasperating nuis
ances. The first is the window-washer.
The long handle of his brush gets between
my 1crs. and he splashes water all over
my suit of clothes and my newly-polished
boots. The second Is the festive janitor
emptying his hods of ashes into the street
ash-barrel. I always happen to be to the
windward, walking toward him, and he
makes me look as while as a miller. The
third is the mat-beater. The mat is dusted
regularly once a month by beating it
against-a telegraph post, whenever the
wind is high and the sidewalks crowded
with people. The fiend bangs it against
tlic post for half an hour, and every time
he bangs it a brown cloud of ill-smelling
dust blows over fifty innocent passers-by.
The fourth is the spittoon washer. He
brings ten saloon spittoons . to the side
walk, ranges them in a line along the
curbstone, fills them with water, stirs
them with n stick, and leaves them there
half an hour to soak. Then he empties
them into the gutter, where a brown pud
pie stands the rest of the day sickening
every one wHB beholds it. The fifth is the
fool who carries long things, like a crow
bar or a joint of gaspipe, balanced on his
shoulder. The head-devil in this line Is
the surveyor, or his chainman, walking
the sidewalk with his theodolite on his
shoulder. The three legs of this infernal
tripod have feruhjs as sharp as a needle,
and these are always carried in front. He
trudges along in a careless manner, chat
ting with the idiot by his side, and is only
amused to see the people scamper to avoid
being impaled. Ho ought to be hanged.

Chocolutu and Its Adulterations.
Chocolate is one of the articles of trade
most susceptible of adulteration, since a
very small quantity of the cacao bean im
parts taste and perfume to a mixture of
tasteless and not always harmless matter.
Unscrupulous manufacturers (and espec
eially is this applicable to the small
producer) introduce into the paste
flour, ground corn and beans, stalo coflec
gi omuls, vcul or mutton tallow (to supply
the necessary oily substance) and the
dregs of ground nut.-; (peanuts) after the
oil has been completely extracted. The
latter substauce, winch a few years ago
wasomployed as fertilizer and occasion
ally made into cake.-; as food for dogs, is
now profitably converted into chocolate.
Add to the above ingedicnts cacao shells
and ground brick, the latter to give
weight, and the components parts of
cheap chocolate arc given.
Chocolate manufacturers admit, with
refreshing artlessut?that adulterated
chocolate is very litt.e us^d in France, but
is profitably exported. It is difficult
to distinguish good chocolate from
fabricated, from the appearance of
the tablets. Good chocolate possesses'
the following qualities: it is oily, possess
ing a full and undeniable flavor of cacao,
breaks regularly and smooth, it is slightly
yellowish in color, with crystalline appear
ance, and when cooked with a little
water or milk becomes only moderately
thick. Adulterated chocolate, on the con
trary, breaks irregularly, is somewhat
gravelly and porous, is whittish in color,
thickens considerably in cooking and gives
forth an odor resembling that of glue.?
Standards of. Color.
The curious suggestion has l>een made
by .Mr. Francis Galtou, of the London An
thropological institute, that sumo of the
colors of the Italian mosaic workers be
i r.ployed as standards for describing the
tints of the skia of the various races and
tribesol mankind. These colors have
great durability, mosaics in St. Peter's at
Home having shown no siuns of change
after more than a century. A great vari
ety of tints .ire available, there being
al ont ."?00 appropriate tu the flesh of Euro
peat] nations alone.

THE POTTER'S FIELD.
THE CEMETRY ON HART'S ISLAND 1
WHERE PAUPER'S REST.
The Burials Always Conducted Decently
and In - Order?The Horror? All In
torrcri with the Poor lionex?Nearly
Fifty-Two Thotifiand Graves.
Much sentimental nonsense has been
written about the horrors of the Potter's
Field. As a matter of fact there is noth
log horrible about it?nothing, at least be
yond the horror which the mind can con- j
jure up, if it is foolish enough to do so, in :
connection with death anil decay in any
form. The burial of the poor man or the
unknown is a matter of business-like des- :
patch, as it must needs bo in a great city J
where men, women and babes drop by the
way in such vast numbers, but there is
nothing revolting or insulting about it. j
Thanks to the system of the admirably j
conducted department of charities and |
correction, it? is done with all due decency j
and cue. and, while there is a nat
oral sentiment in favor of a burial
by beok and bell, with priest and
plum s. weeping friends and a big
granite shaft commemorating the virtues
of the 'iepnrted, the poor clay can not sleep
any easii r or more securely on the high
price, .slopes of Greenwood than it does
beside the purling waters of the East
river, under the exquisitely green turf of
Hart's island. It is a mistake to suppose
that-identity is lost in the Potter's Field.
On the contrary it is most carefully pre
served?by name, if the name is known; i
by photograph in the case of the
unclaimed dead; and it is a fact that
bodies are frequently claimed and removed
to more pretentious burying grounds years
after they have first partaken of the free
hospitality of the much-maligned city
Hart's island is really in Long Island
sound, though in a narrow portion of it.
It. is one of the prettiest bits of emerald
which the city owns, and which
strung along the necklace of the I
East river, are beautiful enough to
make the, virtuous, solvent, sane and
free men of the city envy the surround
ings of the pauper and criminal classes.
The island comprises about seventy-five
acres of laud, and when the new cribbing
is filled in there will be twenty-five acre3
nmre, all of which is needed by the over
crowded department. Only a third of the
island is set apart for the Potter's Field.
KItOM HOSPITAL OR TENEMENT.
The dead wagon is a busy vehicle, and
the two kept in the service of the city often
find themselves some hours behind th^
calls, for Old Mortality waits for no maul
Each wagon has an assortment of roughl
pine coffins, turned out by the city con"
victs, with a larger percentage of chil
dren's size than adult. Tho bodies gath
ered from hospital or tenement, police sta
tion or wharf, are placed in a proper-sized
coffin and trundled away to the morgue or
the dead-house, as the case may be. There j
the routine is a fixed one. The unknown j
are photographed and fully described in a
'proper book, the clothing seached, rec
orded aud stored, and the body placed on
. the marble slabs for identification. Every
thing possible is done tc find the friends
if there tire any to be found. In due time
the dead-house is reached, the bodies are
recoffined, aud a gang of convktggdE^
daily detailed to this duty,~hoaiv-~
boaffl'rTle department stenmer^WB^Kj
When all the coffins have been plated |
upon the deck a tarpaulin is placed over I
them and the boat starts up the river, not j
on the way to horrors certainly. The hor
rors have Ikjimi left behind?the herror? of j
poverty and suffering, the horrors of tho
crowded tenement, of making shirts at 30 j
cents a dozen, of seeking work where none
is to be found; the horrors of drunkenness i
and vice, tho horrors of the hospital and
the dissect ing-room, the horrors of all the
varied forms of death. These are all be-j
hind. There is nothing now but u quiet
sail up a beautiful stream and a narrow i
resting-place beneath the greenest of sod.
The city hearse on Hart's island is not a
handsome vehicle, but it is clean and com
modious. Tho workhouse people stow the
coffins away in it without any particular
show of reference and off it trundles to the
big cemetery. Numbers are cut in each
coffin corresponding to those in the
records, und then side by aide they go, ac
cording to number, into the big trenches.
All is as systematic as a regiment equaliz
ing its companies. Each trench is fifteen
by forty-live feet square and eight feet
deep, and the coltins are ranged in double
file, feet to feet, und slanting slightly
downward from the heads. A thin layer
of earth covers each layer of coffins, for
space is precious and their must be three
tiers. Then the earth is graded up on top
ami the grass is sown which will soon
cover up all suggestion of the tales of mis
ery wrapped up in the dust below. Small
stones at each corner of the trenches form
a sort of milestones to the steady en
croachments of the bodies upon the space
hi the cemetery. The Potters' Field is as
level a.s n tennis court. It Is covered with
trees and shrubs and traversed by well
kept walks.?New York World.
The Koyal Langt ry.
Early the next morning we found the
camping ground about a mile up the road
toward Mirror lake. We pitched our tent
opposite the Koyal Arch Fall, under a
huge tree called the Royal Langtryoak.
An inscription on a bonnl tacked to tho
tree conveys the start ling Information that
upon a certain beautiful midsummer day
not many years ago the famous English
beauty lunched ander the spreading
branches and bathed her fair face and
combed her luxuriant hair. But I am told
