Every paper you take up is full of tho
doings of the rich and the fashionable.
The poor and degraded receive very lit?

be learned from a thoughtful study of
the dark side of life than from the peru?
sal of columns of gossip about people
who live just as all the rest of their
What difference is there, pray, be?
tween the luxurious existence of a Chi?

bond-holder'.' None whatever; and if you
have read a description of the mansion
and social duties of one, you aro ac?
quainted with those of tho othor. The
Sameness becomes absolutely tiresome,
and yet writers continue to turn out
articles that teach nothing new, that do
not depict one feature of city life which
is not perfectly familiar to everybody. !
Ordinary shun life, too, has been
written about-so often that a repetition |
of its more commonplace features has
become almost, nauseating. As long
as large cities exist, there will be mis?
erable tenements inhabited by men and
women suffering from hunger and
thirst, and as long as human nature is
susceptible to evil intluences these mis?
erable hovels will bo full of victims.
Vice in its most hideous form is most
prevalent whore wealth is greatest; con?
sequently all cities have quarters dedi?
cated to the votaries of every thing that
is unholy and unclean. Institutions of
this kind may be conducted openly or
under cover, but thoy are nevertheless
the same wherever wo may Und them;
and not even the eloquence of Talmage
addi'd ono iota to their horror or sub?
tracted a single atom from tho degrada?
tion of their thousands of victims.
Peculiar phases of vice, however,
which depict the gradual degradation of
persons addicted to soul and life-de?
stroying habits, are proper subjects for
newspaper discussion. Every town, no
matter how small, has its dissolute char?
acters, but in a cosmopolitan city like j
Chicago wrecks and outcasts from all
parts of the world meet and teach each
other their miserable tricks and sub
! torfuges. Scores of these unfortunate !
j men and women are honest, so far as
the distinction between mourn and ?
\ tuum is concerned, but, they will resort i
I to the lowest artifices to satisfy a do
I proved appetite.
I Notable among this class of outcasts
I is the fellow who drains the stale beer
1 from kegs bade of down-town saloons.
Armed with a battered tin can which in
I its halcyon days contained perhaps a J
j toothsome moss of tomatoes or Callfor- ,
! nia peaches, lie will all evening and far
Into the night walk his beat and keep :
a sharp lookout for kegs deposited in
the alloy by the busy bar-keeper. Each
of these kegs contains from a quart to ?
half a gallon of stale nnd odorous fluid
which is greedily consumed by tho j
Several years ago these "night tap- I
pers," as they are called, were not very
numerous, but now they constitute a
respectable little army as far as num?
bers aro concerned, and the profitable ?
territory has been divided among them .
according to the theories of the most
ndvancod communists. Each tapper's
district is known among tho initiated
as a '?beat,*' and an infringement of
1 territory so allo tod is considered amis- j
demeanor and punished severely. The
experienced tapper can tell how much
beer is left in a keg by simply lifting \
it. lie knows the exact, weight of the i
keg, and if a trial convinces him that !
the saloon-keeper has nearly drained its
contest he does not. go to tho trouble of
filling his can. Ho knows that by going
to tbe next saloon on his beat he will
probably find a keg containing half a
gallon of "stuff," and as nothing less
than that quantity will suffice to "whet
his whistle," ho considers it infra dig.
to waste his time over a quart remnant.
Tho alloys aro the thoroughfares pat?
ronized by this class of night prowlers.
Whim it becomes necessary to cross a
Strcot, the tapper sneaks along until ho
is assured of the absence of police of- ,
fleers. A hold dash across the street
lands him in the alley back of another
saloon, and tints bo spends tho hours
from seven in the evening until one the
next morning, when he lies down in
some seel tided nook to sleep off tho ef?
fects of the poison wUh which he lias
tilled his system.
That men should fall so low as to
I greedily pour down swill which no Bolf-q
respecting hog would swallow is doplor
able; bul that women, mothers of fam?
ilies, should stoop to imitate the prac?
tices of tho night tapper seems terrible,
j To tho shame of the sex it must bo
s;;;tcd. however that Chicago has no less
than a dozon fomnlo tappers, who not
i only pursuo tho nefarious occupation
j themselves, but compel thoir children
; to nssist them.
Ono gaunt female, clad in rags and
t with an infant in bor arm?, c;\n be seen
nightly hovering ?round the alloys of a
In oho arm she holds a sickly-looking
child, in tho right hand she carries a
tin can which she fills and empties per?
haps a dozen times a night hefore seek?
ing rest in a police station or her own
miserable quarters in a tumble-down
frame structure on South State street.
This same woman, according to the best
authority, was once the wife of a pros?
perous business man whom she ruined
by her extravagance and lovo for
liquor. A divorco ended the domes?
tic drama as far as the man was
concerned, lie went West and ac?
quired a handsome fortune. Tho
woman sank lower and lower and finally
married a thief who is now serving a
sentence at Joliot. All she has left is
an uncontrollable appetite for alcohol, i
and a sickly child to which she clings ;
with a devotion which proves that, not,
all the better feelings have been stifled
in her bosom.
Another woman is in the habit of
hanging around the streets near tho
alleys. She does not tip the beer keg
herself, but compels her ten-year-old
boy to till her can. When the poor lit- i
tlo fellow has succeeded in discovering
ohtaixix?; a supply for motiirr.
a supply of swill, he whistles. The ,
: woman then enters the alley and greed?
ily disposes of the nauseating stulT.
The boy has twice been arrested, but :
his mother succeeded both t imes in hav- j
ing him released; a circumstance much
to hi; rcjjrctted, inasmuch as the poor I
little fellow would be much better oil" in :
a reform school than under the care of 1
his dissolute parent.
Scarcely less degraded llian the tap?
per is the alcohol toper. This ilcnd in
j human form is satisfied with nothing
j but alcohol in all its original strength.
? Perhaps it would be better to call him a
suicide than a toper, as no one addicted
to the alcohol habit can live any length
of time. The victims of the vice know
this, and yet they can not bo persuaded
! to give up the vile- slug. The action of
l alcohol on the stomach has a tendency
i to burn up that organ, and even the can- ;
sumers of good whisky suffer front de?
rangement of the digestive organs. The ,
? alcohol toper accomplishes insix months ,
or. if exceptionally strong, a year what i
the heavy drinker of refined liquors does
in a life-lime. The process in both
cases is the same: and considering the
matter from a strictly economical stand
; point, the. alcohol fiend is a more sensi?
ble fellow than the ordinary toper. 1'olh
i are worth loss and the sooner they are I
removed from the mundane sphere, the
better for the community at large. 1
There arepcrhaps lifty alcohol drinkers ,
in Chicago, most of them of foreign
origin. Their symptoms are akin to
those exhibited by tho opium cater. If
the craving for tho spirits remains un?
satisfied, they become morose and de?
jected and subject to attacks of nervous
prostration which usually end in insan?
ity or deal h.
Like the morphine fiends, they will
sleal and lie and resort to tin* most
vicious means to secure their tipple.
Eight, months of dissipation usually
brings relief to their families, SB no hu
tiir ( oveteu drink.
man stomach can endure the strain of
the poison for a longer period.
Strange as it may seem, it is never?
theless a fact that both the night tap?
pers and alcohol topers ate recruited
from the ranks of the so-called respecta?
ble drinkers who. even in their degrada?
tion, have enough pride, in their sober
moments, to revolt from doing any thing
aishonest or dishonorable. Tho ordi?
nary bum or (ramp will resort to crime
to satisfy his appetite, and hence it is
hut just to draw a distinction between
the two classes. Hut. for a temperance
lecturer tho characters here described
would furnish material whoso vivid de?
scription would have taxed the olo

MISS EWING'S TOOTSIES.
6ho SIiiikU Smith Krot T.Mi, und Her l->e*
Aro No laeunbranen,
Itmay bo stated without fear of dis?
pute, says tho St Louis,Globe-Domoorat,
that Miss Ella Kwing, of Fnirmount,
Clark County, Mo., hi tb? possessor of
bigger feet than any other woman in
the country. The young lady, who is
now but eighteen years of age, ordered
last week a pair of shoes from tboTcn
hant-Strlbllng Shoe Company, and they
are now very nearly finished. The shoes
are the largest over turned out in St.
Louis. The last over which they wero
constructed measures l5J.f inches in
length and -I' , inches in width at the
ball of tho foot. There is onough
leather in one of the heels to build live
pairs of ordinary ladies" shoes, and tho
leather in each shoe would he sufficient,
if it could bo utilized, to mako thirty
pairs of ordinary shoes. A. VY. Footo,
who made the last, states that within
the period of his eighteen years'expe?
rience in the shoe business he has never
seen any thing to quite equal Miss Sw?
ing's foot. It took him a day and a half
to look up tho timber, and when bo
finally secured a large enough maple
block to lew tho last from he was
obliged to lill out' tho instep with
Miss Kwing. tho young lady who will
wear the shoes when they aro entirely
constructed, is tho daughter of a farmer
at Falrinount,and it is understood spent
the early part of her life in the woods
in tho vicinity of Chicago. Her height
is 7 feot 10 inches and her weight '" '?">
pounds. She is, therefore, rather slen-'
der for her height. The young lady
has been in the habit, of having her
shoes made by a cobbler in the country
place near where she lives, and the lat?
ter evidently has not been Utting her
as well as he. should. Ono of In r old
shoes, which was sent here with tbo
order for the new pair, is a rather crude
conception or what a shoo ought to he,
anil the way it has been worn would in?
dicate that tho lady has corns. Hut such
is not the case, as those state who know
her anil her feet.
Miss Kwing wanted tho new shoos
made next week in order lh.it, sho
might make a creditable appearance in
St. I.ouis during the coming festivities.

from me. My friend, who was not ex?

like mad. Although ho was over forty
years old and deserving of rospcot, 1

but. 1 got him cooled olT and induced
him to walk on, or rather dodge on, be?

quick dashes across streets. Wo saw two
dead vigilantes, lying in thoirown blood,
and saw three of tho same, wounded,

.\ Cow'* ICinphiitic 1'rotont.
The llclfast (Me.) Age describes the
experience of a youth of N'orthport who
harnessed a cow in his father's best
buggy for tho j/urposo of taking a ride:
'?The cow was very docile until he tried
to drive her. then, what a spectacle!
When the cow felt the weight of the
Wagon at tached to her she gave one loud
bellow, and with tail over her hack went
kicking and plunging through the gar?
den, tramping the vegetables and
knocking down bean poles, the young
man holding on to the seat, howling for
some oito to stop her, but nothing could
stop her. Finally a stone wall got in
her traclc. She cleared it in grand
shape, but the buggy, young man and
harness were so badly mixed tip that a
neighbor w ho came to the rescue could
not tell one from the oilier. The cow
has not yet been found, but the ruin sho
left behind will forever be a monument
to her w rath. The buggy was curried to
Iho barn in a bushel basket and tho
young man on a stretcher."
