THE CUB BOOK-BINDER.
Know Veet Hazier?
Well, 1 should say I did. I have known
Litu since the limber-shank days of his
lioyhood. He and 1 served our apprentice
ships together. .
You thought I said lie was a book-binder.'
So he was, and 5b one of the best that
ever trimmed an edge or rounded a back.
No, you are right. I never worked ttt
book-binding; but have always consistently
stuck to the case. The way we came to be
thrown together in our early youth was
this: The house in which I learned the
indinients of the sublime art had a book
bindery connected with it; or the printing
office whs attached to the bindery t least
they were inseparable and have ever since
no remained. The binding they did was
mostly in the way of blank-books ami the
like, though they had considerable work at
re-binding old books, magazines, etc. A
good fiim that was, Stamp, Marhlosides &,
Co., until Marblcsides got to be a little too
fat for the others, and made tor himself
rather an equivocal reputation.
When I first met Veet there
Whv do you call him "Veet?"
Weil, you see his parents and sponsors,
among them gave him the name of Holve
tius Van Rensselaer. You notice he signs
his name in this letter "H. V. Hazier." No
boy could be expected to carry into practi
cal every day use such a tiresome succes
sion of syllabcls; so, no sooner was this
one fairly trousered and turned out to dis
port himself among kindred spirits than
they undertook to lop olT the superfluities of
hig'nntper name. The ordinary method is
to curtail it of all syllables but the first.
This was tried 'on Veet but when they un
dertook to couple his sobriquet with his
patronymic, he wouldn't stand it. Try it
knii sec how it would sound ! So, as "Shus"
was too awkward, they cleared away thp
rubbish at lxth ends decapitated and cur
tailed it, and took the second syllable and
modified it to the satisfaction of all con
cerned. Ah. tne! How well 1 remembrr the day
he came into the office, or bindery, or both
for the entire business was carried on, not
only under the same roof, but in the same
room. Think of it ! A room large enough
for a concert hall, with a book and job of
fice in one end, bindery at the other and the
counting room half way between, and a
litUe to one side, so as to allow uninter
rupted communication between the difl'-r-ent
operatives, without disturbing Stamp
at the desk.
Well, that's just what 1 was about to tell
you "What happened when Vet first cam
there?" H looked awfullv irrceu. and imuienly
curious. He brought sonic sort of paper to
Stamp, who was busy and told the bid to
wait. I had been at work thereabout ayear.
And as I saw that long-legged, solemn
faced 'youth prowling about, looking into
everything that came in his way, my fingers ,
itched to get hold of him. I resolved to
avail myself of ttiu first opportunity to
tdiow him the "type lice."
You "never saw type-lice?" No more
did the oldest man at the business. No,
of course there's no such thing. If any
body ever offers to show them to you, don't
you look ! These fabulous vermin are sup
posed to be nestled in between the lines of
it wet form, as it lies on the stone, just
where the types have been shoved down
about the length of a stickful, and u dirty
wet sponge squecr.ed over the opening.
Then, as the deeply interested investigator
bends down to see the curiosities, the devil,
who is generally the exhibitor, shoves the
amiirtlv to its former tilace. and the vic
tim of the hoax wipes his face on his pock
Well, I saw the pamo sidling up my wny
and s there was a form on the stone, pre
pared tho trap, and waited.
When he cani'j near enough, 1 nodded
invitingly and grinned sociably, and he
When he quite, reached the edire of the
tone he began asking the mimes ot things,
tod I overflowed with information, At
length, I bent eagerly over the stone, ex
claiming, '0h, my ! I never saw so many before I"
"What is it!" said lie, modestly.
"There's one, two, three, four, fm, six,
oven, eight, nine, ten oh, mor'n I can
count, they run around ho fasti" laid 1,
feigning not to hear his query. Then lie
spoke up eagerly, and a triflo more boldly.
"What is it you met"
Vmhin.f ,r.t tvne-lien." answered' I,
1 diew back. No sooner had I given w
tor him. than, without an invitation,
from the other Bli
to take a look.

culmination of the game. But there I had
T hud a realizing
ton of immediate neighborhood ol
that awful personage iu the way ot an
application of hoot-leather on that portion
of the anatomy where parents smite their
young, , ,
Aside fiora the kick, 1 didn'tfeel so good
over this as 1 had anticipated. The boy
washed his face for some time, and then
his eyes looked red. You see the watt r
was not altogether unmixed with lye.
Like my story? No, that's as true as
gospel. I don't tell it because I feel proud
of it, for 1 can assure you my victim took
a fearful revenge.
He was a half-a-head taller than f, and
about the same age. When I learned that
the letter he brought was . a recommenda
tion from old Judge Oore, and that he was
to be apprenticed to the book-binder's
trade, I began to look forward to the day
when I should find him waiting for me
around some corner, as I went home; but it
came in a worso shape than that. A big,
over-grown press-feeder from the Journal
oflke tackled me one day, about six weeks
ofr tlna .wiirrenep. iind W;'.S iost fixing
to do the business for me in fine style,
when up comes the young binder's cub,
and walked into the affections of Mr. Press
feeder, until he was glad to sing out, and
promise, "I wish-I-may-die." if he ever of
fered to harm me again.
When I began to blunder out a boyish
apologv for the type-lice trick, he declared
that all the time'he wa washing his face
he had laughed fit to kill, to think what a
funny game it was. But I never tried it
again, all the same.
"An Old Physician's Advick." Coughs
colds, asthma and other pulmonaiy affec
tions should be looked to and promptly
treated in tune and thus all serious results
raav be avoided, and for this purpose we
know of no better remedy than "Dr.
Swayue's Compound Syrup of Wild Cher
ry." Tho first dose gives relief, and it is
sure to cure the worst cold or cough in a
very short time. Try a 25 cent bottle and
be convinced, and you will thus ivoid a
doctor's bill, and most likely a serious spell
of sickness. Price 25 cents and $1 per bot
tle, or six bottles $5. The large size is the
most economical. Prepared by Dr. Swayne

John B. Ilawley, of Kock Island, has
concluded to run lor the llepubliean nom
ination for governor. John B. is now as
sistant treasury of these United States.
He was formerly a member of congress
from the Rock Island district. He is as
much like Shelby M. Cullom as "eggs to
eggs," except that he hasn't the ability to
skirmish, nor the profound knowledge of
state politics that constitutes Cul
lom's strong point. Ilawley's
chauces do not strike us as very flatter
ing, unless he can make a combination.
Everything nowadays goes by combinations
and localities. It may be, however, that
Ilawley considers if becomes out as a can
didate he can trade off with the successful
men in such a way as to greatly better his
chances for a better position. Polices is
such on artful trade these woeful days that
no one knows what game, an officeholder is
trying to get simply from the direction his
