THE WRONG MAN.
Working the Conadence Game on an Old
New York Soldier.
James 'Chittenden is a well-to-do
farmer of western New York, who
fought under Gen. Grant, and who
came to the city to pay the last sad
tribute to the memory of his old com
mander. Time has whitened the long
hair which streams over his coat-collar,
and long bending at the plow has im
parted a stoop to his broad shoulders;
but his face is ruddy with health, and
his step as firm and springy as ever,
while his arm is as strong and his
glance as bright as when he firstshoul
iered a musket. Many eyes were
turned upon him as he sauntered sadly
down Broadway on his way to the city
kam&eee.d afternood in his travel
stained linen duster, heedless of the
elamor of the passing crowds and the
din of car-bells and carriage-wheels.
A. sorrowful expression clouded the
benevolent countenance of the veteran,
and he was walking along slowly near
Canal street. saddened by thoughts of
days that were gone, when he was as
tonished by a cordial salutation from a
slim, dudish youth, who suddenly smil
ed up at him and waved at him an am
brosial hand glittering with rings:
-Why, bless my soul. Mr. Smith,"
exclaimed this product of latter-day
civilization in the most honeyed tones,
"who ever would have thought of see
ing you? This is : .eed an unexpect
ed pleasure."
Mr. Chittenden for a moment was
taken aback. He surveyed the new
comer from the crown ot his white tile
to the points of his dainty patent-leath
er shoes and saw at once that he was
an entire stranger; but he loves a joke,
and a twinkle shoacd in his clear
gray eye as he replied with a quiet
smile:
"My name-is.. Smith; it's
Brown.
The "idish young man bowed his
most ' nable bow and at once pass
- ed on, l L proluse apologies for his
mistake, and Mr. Chittenden again
pursued his way.- He had stopped
laughing at his little adventure and
had relapsed intoihis former train of
meditationt when he was a second time
accosted by another apparition in a
standing collar and cuffs, and a voice
even more unctuous than the first, sa
luted him as "Mr. Brown." Whether
Mr. Chittenden's faith in human nature
had been shaken by his first encounter,
or whether his love of a joke again im
pelled him, he does not now remember,
but he immediately seized the hand
extended to him and shook it with cor
dial violence, uttering at the same time
the warmest greetings.
"How do you find yourself, my dear
est friend? There, stand off so I can
look at you." cried the exuberant
farmer. emphasizing every word by
tightenino his grasp of the stranger's
hand. "'4leased to see me? The pleas
ure is mine, sir: entirely mine. Only
to think of it's being you! What, come
to see the funeral? How considerate
of you, eh?"
"Oh. yes, and-and all that sort of
.thing," replied the other, his smile a
little fainter and his tone a little less
cordial than at first, "Why. what an
affectionate fellow you are, Mr.
Brown?"
"Aye, lad; cordiality runs in our
family," rejoined the farmer, closing
his fingers relentlessly and working
his arm like the handle of a force
pump; "a firm hand shows a warm
heart. Affectionate? Well, I reckon
I am. None of your loose grips for
me, Meet a friend as a friend, I say,
and don't be bacbward in showing
your friendship. Why, how well you
look. I should never have known
you.
"Time does alter one, it's true.
There, there, Mr. Brown; 1 have been
suffering with a sore hand, if you would
"on' mention it, sonny; don't
mention it. Nothing like exercise to
keep good blood circulating. I can
-never control myself at the sight of an
old friend. Well, well, only to think
that it's you. How -how-you've
growed!"
"Yes, indeed, and that reminds me
-I'ye an important engaement, and
I seelIhave no time tolose, so if you'll
just excuse me
But Mr. Chittenden is not the man
to part from old friends so hastily, and
so he only jerked the arm of his new
acquaintance the harder, renewing his
expressions of delight. By this time
the thing was getting serious. The
would-be confidence man was capering
with pain, and struggled in the vice
like grasp of the stalwart rustic like a
lobster in the clutches of an octopus.
His face and lips were colorless, and
his brow stream~ed with cold perspira
tion. His eyes stood out like saucers.
His collar broke loose, his hat fell off.
and the light seemed to have faded out
of his life. The agony depicted on his
face was net lessened when he saw
that a crowd was gathering; and the
farmer released he only after a final
wrench which nearly tore the wily
sharper's a m from its socket.
"WE , gomg already?" exclaimed
Mr. Chittenden, who had never turned
a hair and rather enjoyed the exercise.
"Well, well, you needn't be in such a
hurry," he continued, in a reproachful
tone, as the confidence man picked
himself up and darted around the cor
ner out of sig'ht of the approaching fig
.uro in the helmet and brass buttons.,
-"That's rather shabby treatment of an
~old friend like me-but he didn't seem
so very glad to see me, after ili," and
Mr. ehittenden beamed benignly upon
the grinning bystanders and calmly
pursued his journey.-Yeso York
.World.
Mliss Belva Lookwood is not quite so
ridiculous as campaign caricatures
made her. She might be 40. or she
might be 50. Her features are of the
clear-cut Grecian,relined type; aquiline
.nose, straight forehead, overhanging a
pair of sharp,penetrating eyes, a glance
into which at once conymnces one that
the lady is endowed with more than
ordinary brain power. Mantled over
her forehead is a roll of hiands.ome,
wavy gray hair that adds much to her
natural beauty of her face. There is
nothing in her out ward appearance or
expression that would leadt a casual ob
server to guess that she belonged to
that miuch-rid.culed class of wolnen de
nominated "strong-minded." \
A Domestic Tranedy.
Last summer while the writer was in
Amelia County, Virginia, the following
incident occurred, illustrative of the
philosophical manner in which negroes
accept the decreesof Providence. Ame
lia, it will be remembre'l, is one of
the black counties. Tim negroes occu
py most of the old homesteads, and are
given over to ignorance and sulwrsti
ion. The Wigwam. the old lirrison
place, a house weli known in Virlin:ia,
is surrounded on every side rjy hordes
of negroes. who own small tracts of
and, and farm them. One of these
settlements is at "the L ndg." once the
property of Mr. Robert Archer, a dis
tinguished Virginian gentleman of the
ld regime, now, with all his descend
nts, dead and gone. My hostess and
[ was peelng -penches ou the broad
veranda, when Mary Caear, the dairy
maid, appeared.
"Miss Anna, gimme plece o' ?ight
bread, please. marn."
"Who is sick, Mary? 'said Mrs. H-,
ight bread being a luxury reserved for
the ill negroes.
"Sister Rose Archer, mari."
All colored people claim the frater
nal relation, whether, there is any in
reality or not, if they are members of
the same church, or have "experienced
a change."
"Why, I thou-ht Rose' Archer lived
in Richmond. \ 'hat is the atter with
er?"
Mary's large greasy countenance,
which rivalled a bombazine dress for
blackness, fairly shone.
"Well, Miss Anna, you 'member Sis
ose was married to Unk Crutch Henry
Areher's son Willum, en dey moved
fum de Lodge to Richmond. 'Bout
three week ago Sis Rose en Willum hed
. fight 'bout some'in', en Sis Rose hit
Wiflum Archer cr lick on do head wid
a stick or wood, en it kilt him, it pintly
did. Willum Archer always was a
siekly nigger. Well, Miss Anna, she
done arsfteeould, en gin him er fun
ral, en den, bein' ez she was aidder,
n pore, she come up'to-de Lodge to
stag here 'longer Willunms daddy en
mammy. Unk Crutch Henry were
mighty 'flieted 'bouton Willum b6eig
ilt, 'cause he were do onliest son whar
he had, but Sis -Rose say she gwine dar
to be all de company she ken for Will
am's folks.'
The peach knife fell. Mrs. H-,
though schooled to Amelia eccentrici
des, stood transfixed. Then she gasp
"And William's father and mother
let her stay there after killing their on
ly Son?"
."Miss Ann" said Mary, in a pecu
tiarly soothing voice, "Unk Crutch
HEnry done ax Rose buck un she come
o kill Willum Archer, ean Sis Rose say
ahe don' know huck um."
This was Monday. Sunday afternoon
ary re-appeared, an expression of
riumphant excitement in her eyes,
hough her manner was as gentle and
eprecatory as ever.
"Sis Rose Archer dead, Miss Anna,"
ibe announced.
"Dead! When did she die?"
Mary smoothed her apron.
"Well, Tuesday mornin', Miss Anna,
Br'er Jeames Barksdale went to Court
House, en do sheriff sent Sis Rose word
to git ready, 'cause he was comin' to
de lodge Monday mornin' to git her
n hang her for killin' of Willum Arch
r. En Sis Rose say et-de sheriff were
:omin' to hang her, ez she wore porely
Dnyway, 'tw'int tuth while to git up, so
ie gwine die."
"Nonsense!" erled Mrs. H- "As
if people could die when' they chose!"'
"Sis Rose done die," said Mary,'
stoutly. "She say 'twa'ni eout/ whil.
lo git up fes~t to be hanged, en she die

A New Hotel Dodge.
"Key to 278!" said the bell-boy to
the clerk of a city hotel, as he rushed
ap to the counter.
The clerk took the key out of the
box andi extended it to the boy, when a
thouht struck him, and he stopped
and oked in the box at the addes
on an envelope lying there.
"Who wants it?" he inquired.
"Lady in parlor-in a hurry," re
plied Front, dancing a jig of imnpa
tience.
"That ain't her room. Go back and
ask for her name."
Front disappeared and returned
presently, slowly.
"She says it don't make any differ
ence-it's a mistake-and she's gone."
"Thought so!" ejaculated the clerk
to a reporter standing by. "She was
working the new racket. It's a pretty
good one, and sometimes takes; oper
ated by women generally. They go
into the ladies' parlor, ring for the bell
boy, and send him in a matter-of-fact
way for the key of some room. Ho
asks the clerk for it, and, if he is busy
and-.thinking of something else, he
hands it out without a question. Then
the female sharper goes through the
room in a hurry, trusting to thieves'
luck that the occupant will not return
before she gets away. Then the hotel
is responsible for the loss. -St. Louis
Chronicle.
The largest hotel in Santiao, Chili,
recently built, has its oddity, like other
things in that country. The oddityss
says a correspondent of the Suvk, the
bar in the cafe where ladies are ex
pected to lunch. "It is." he adds,
"the only hotel bar in South America,
and the 'proprietor of the hotel, who
wanted to introduce all the modern im
provements. was rather bewildered in
selecting the location of this one. But
it is a beautiful bar, and the ladies ad
mire it as much as the men. At first
they were disposed to walk up to it and
say 'The same for me. If you please,'
with their brothers or husbands, but
have been convinced that the proper
form is- to sit at the tables and take
their drinks there. Tro see a lady d'iak
ing a cocktail in the bar-room of the
Grand Central of Santiago may startle
the prohibitionist who comes here, but
it is quite as much the fashion as to
suck mint juleps through a straw on
ex bacnis of a Long Trneh hotel"

SENSIBLE PEOPLE
ARE NOT EASILY DECEIVED, FOR
they know quite well that ood and bad
lothing are alike made to sell; and who
was ever known to advertise poor clothing?
T'ley know how nearly all clothiers keep
the linest and sell-on paper-at less than
it cost to make them. Honest prices, well
made and nicely fitting clothes, together
with a good name (justly deserved), are
bound to tell.
The above being a fact, 1 state it merely
to enforce the point that I have ready for
inspection the largest and best assorted
stock of Fall and Winter Clothing for men,
youths and boys, that can be found in the
State. They are peerless in variety and
honestly good all the way through; even
the underlinings are shrunk and the trim
mings used are meant to wear, not merely
to help sell the goods, as everg garment is
warranted as represented. T here are un
issailable ramiarts behind which I invite
ou to deal. I am not here for a season
ly; I am ]*ere to stay. My stock this sea
Wn is the largest I nave ever carried, and
it embraces every style and fashionable
garment that is made. I am willing to
ompare them with the merchant tailor
work, and it is with real pleasure to Aate
that the business <f this MPORIU3M OF
FASMIION is steadily on the icrease. My
large and constantly increasing patronage
testifies more forcilily than words than the
values offered by me are not equalled by
nv house in the State.
To prove the truth of this I ask buyers
to make their own comparisons, as I enjoy
then a reputation above that and beyond
that of all clothiers in this vicinity at least
producing a superior class of regular
railor-made Clothing and Genta' Furnish
ing Goods, IHats and Fine Shoes. This is
the headquarters for the correct styles in
en's and boys' attire. All orders sent to
my care will be promptly attended to.
Respectfully.
