THE DAITiY BULLE1TN.
A MYSTERIOUS VISIT.
Mark Twain li Interviewed by a Tax Col
lector How Ho Got Out of It.
Tho first notloe that was taken of me
When 1 "settled down" recently, was by
a gentleman who Bald that he was an
assessor, and connected with the U. S.
Internal revenuo department. I said I
had never hoard of his branch of busi
ness before, but I was very glad to pco
him all the game would Le sit down?
Ho sat down. I asked if he was opening
his shop in our neighborhood.
Ho said he was.
We talked, and talked, and talked
at least I did. And wo. laughed, and
laughed, and laughed at least ho did.
But all the time I had tny presence ol
mind about me-I had my native
shrewdness turnod on, "full head," as
the engineers say. I was determined to
find out all about his business, In spito
of his obscure answers and I was de
termined I would have it out of him
without his suspecting w hat I was at.
I meant to trap hitu with a deep, deep
ruse. I said:
'Now you never would guess what
I mado lecturing this winter and last
"No I don't believe I could to savo
me. Say seventeen hundred, maybe?"
"Ha, ha! 1 knew you couldn't. My
lecturing receipts fur lust spring and
this winter wore fourteen thousand
seven hundred and fifty dollars. What
do you think of that P"
"'Why, it is amazing perfectly amaz
ing. 1 will mako a note of it And you
say even this wasn't all?"
"All? Why, bless you, there was my
Income from "tho newspapers for four
months about about well, what
should you say to about eight thousand
dollars, for instance?"
"SayP Why I should say I should
like to seo myself rolling in just such
another ocean of affluence. Eight
thousand! I'll make a note of it. Why,
mail and on top of all this I am to
understand that you had still more in
come?" "Ha, ha, ha! Why, you're only in
the suburbs of it, so to s'peak. There's
my book 'The Innocents Abroad'
Imeo $3.50 to $5, according to the
iinding. Listen to me. Look mo in the
eye. During tho last four months and
a half, saying nothing of sales before
that, but just simply duriug the four
months, we'vosold ninety-live thousand!
Think of it. Average four dollars n
copy, saw It's nearly four hundred
thousand dollars, my son. I get half!"
.. "Tho suffering Moses! I'll set that
down. Fourteen-scvf n-tifty eight two
hundred. Total, say well, upon my
word, the grand total is about two hun
dred and thirteen or fourteen thousand
dollars. Is that possible?"
"Possible! If there's any mistake it's
the other ,v"y. Two hunJred and four
teen thousand, cash, is my income for
this year if I know how I cipher."
Then the gentleman got up to go. At
the last moment the gentleman handed
me a largo envelope and said it con
tained his advertisement.
As soon as he wis gone I opened bis
advertisement, I studied it attentively
for four minutes. I then called up the
cook and said:
"Hold me while I faint. Let Maria
turn tho liatter-eakes."
Ily and by, when I came to, I sent
down to the rum mill on tho corner and
hired an artist by tho week to sit up
niirhts and curse that stranger, and give
nio a lift occasionally in the day time,
when I ctiriio to a hard place.
Ah, what a miscreant ho was! His
advertisement" was nothing in the
world but a wicked tax return a string
of impertinent questions about my pri
vate affairs occupying the best part ol
four foolscap pages of line print ques
tions, I may remark, gotten up with
such marvelous ingenuity that the old
est man in the world couldn't under
stand what the most of them were driv
ing at questions, too, that were calcu
ated to make a man report about four
tin;eH the actual income to keep from
swearing to a lie. I looked for a loop
hole, hut there did not appear to be
anv. Inquiry No. 1 covered inv case,
as amply as an umbrella could cover an
"What were your profits in 18C9,
from any trade, business or vocation,
wherever carried on?"
Ami that inquiry was backed up by
thirteen others of an equally searching
nature, tho most modest of which re
quired information as to whether I had
committed any burglary or highway
robbery, or by any arson or other secret
source of emolument in my statement
of income as set opposite to tny inquiry
It was strange that the stranger had
enabled me to make an ass of myself.
It was very, very plain, and I went out
and nlred another artist liy working
on my vanity the stranger hadseduoed
me into declaring an income of 1214,
000. By law ?1,W0 of this was exempt
from income taxthe only relief I could
see, and it was only a drop in the ocean.
At tne legal live per cent 1 must pay over
to the government the appalling sum
of ten thousand six hundred and fifty
uuuax income tax.
I am acquainted with a very opulent
man whose house is a palace, whose
table is regal, whose outlays are enor
mous, yet a man who has uo income, as
1 have often noticed, by the revenue re
turns; and to him 1 went for advice, in
my distress. We took my dreadful ex
hibition of receipts, he put on his glass
es, be took his pen, and presto! I was
a pauper! It was the neatest thing that
ever was. Ho did it simply bv deftly
manipulating tho bill of "deductions'
Ho set down my "State, national and
municipal taxes" at so much; my "loss
es by shipwreck, fire, etc.," at so much;
my "Josses on sales of real cstaUi" on
"live stock sold" on "payments for
rent of homestead" on "repairs, im
provements, Interest" on "previously
taxed salary as an officer of the United
btates army, navy revenue service," and
other times. He got astonishing 'de
ductions out of each and every one of
these matters - each and every one of
them. And when ho was done ho
handed me tho paper, and 1 saw at a
glanco that during the year IMS) my in
tome, in the way of profits, had been
one thousand two hundred and lif ly dol
lars and forty cents.
"Now," said he, "the thousand dol
lars is exempt by law. When you want
to do it go and swear this documuut in,
CAIRO BULLETIN: THURSDAY MORNINU, MARCH
and pay tax on the two hundred and tif
While ho was making this spoech his
little boy Willie lifted a two dollar green
back out of his vast pocket and vanish
ed with it, and I would but anything
that if my strangor wero to call ou that
littlo boy to-morrow ho would mako a
false return of his incomo.
"Do you," said I, "do you always
work up the 'deductions' after this fash
ion In your own case, sir?"
"Well, I should say so! If it weren't
for those cloven saving clauses under
the head of 'Deductions' 1 should be
beggared every year to support this
hateful and wicked, this extortionate
and tyrannical government"
This gentleman stands away up
among the very best of the solid men of
tho city, tho men of moral weight of
commercial integrity, of unimpeachable
social spotlessness, aud so I bowed to
his example. I went down to tho reve
nue office, and under tho accusing uyu
of my old visitor 1 stood up ami swore
to lie after lie, fraud after fraud, vil
liany after villiany, till my immortal
soul w as coated inches and inches thick
with perjury, and my self-respect was
gono forever and ever.
But what of it? It is nothing more
than thousands of tho highest and rich
est and proudest and most respected,
honored and courted men in America
do every j ear. Aud so I don't enre. I
am not ashamed. I shall simply, for
the present, talk littlo and wear fire
proof gloves, least I fall into certain
Anecdotes of Boston Society.
If tho German narrows society in a
dancing hall, still more can the absence
of introductions diminish our social
pleasures; for it would be foolish to ex
pect that Uoston is vet old enough to
enable one to speak to another in a
friend's drawing-room without being
presented. A most amusing instanco of
the consequence of such fearlessness
was a scene between an elderly and a
middlo-nged lady in a crowded supper
room on Ueaeon street. The younger
one had eaten her salad and ices iu un
broken silence; so had the elderly wii
man. As toffee was still to be handed
round, the first ventured that, as tho
room was very hot., tho ico was refresh
ing. "Yes," was the long drawn reply,
coupled with the words, "Have I met
"No," was the amused answer; "per
haps we may never meet again; but I
fancied we might speak to each other
"Yes. I am Mrs. B , of 1) avenue.
"fnm Miss W , of X street."
"Ah, indeed! The ice is cooling."
And the obler lady having satisfied her
self that the person had a name she had
known, slowly drifted into a conversa
tion that was more congealing than the
Many of our elderly young men de
cline an introduction, as they "already
have such an extensive circle." Ono
such individual was asked to be present
ed to a lady who was sitting alone. He
eyed her back and front and declined,
lie returned half an hour later saying:
"I'll bo introduced to her now. I seo
several of the men have been talking to
her. Her profile is not bad."
"No," replied the lady. "When I
asked you because she was my friend,
you declined. Now 1 decline to present
Ono of Boston's oldest families gave
a reception. Two scions of other old
families attended, to whom tho host
"I'll introduce you to thoso ladies op
posite," and ho moved toward them.
"Excuse us," said ono of tho men;
"tho ladies are of a peasant sty lo of
beauty; it is hardly worth while."
The li,ost bowed in recognition of their
far-seeing power, adding:
"Yes, they are my nieces from the
country, but I will not trouble you."
No apology would ho receive, though
eagerly ollered. The old gentleman
was right; ho wished to vindicate the
honor of his house.
No ono has any right to accept even
the most general hospitality unless he
accedes to reasonable demands; but wo
are in mortal terror lest a young man
niay not come again, and we allow him
to do as he pleases, which means to
seek tho attractive girls. Then, as
every woman has a host of friends, who
aro only delightful when known, she is
obliged to seem unaware of their value,
Ix.'cause so many men decline introduc
tions. The society phrase is, "I thank
you. I seo so mftny here whom I know
that I will not trouble you;" and if the
hostess persists, then is added, "Thanks,
I'll speak to Miss and then come
back." Woe to that hostess if her per
sistency continues, for she will have to
go after theyoung man; he will never
come back to her.
A plain lady living in an unfashiui
able street invited a gentleman of
leisurely life to her home, because in
her simplicity she thought no seemed
lonely, though he only suffered from
ir-sthcticiMn. He came, aud at the close
of the evening observed to her: "I had
no idea I should meet so many distin
guished people at.yor house," hi. voice
unconsciously emphasizing the pronoun.
Such a remark stands in striking con
trast to that of Dr. Holmes, who was
heard one evening to say to his hostess:
"Make use of me in any way I can
help jou most." That was high-bred
courtesy; he came to serve her and
make others happy. If each would be
lieve ns simply as did the doctor that
such ability was more or less in each
one's power, how agreeable society
would become, and how haimy wo
should all be. 1 1
The late Clark Mills wm a man o!
original ideas ami determination to car.
ry them into effect. Thirty-one vears
ago, when he built a fu'.uaoe in Wash
ington, in which to molt the bronze foi
his great statue of Jackson, scientific
men ridiculed him for constructing it
partly under ground. Away down there,
they said, there would not be oxygen
enough for a lire to melt bronze. Uo
answered that he would secure sufficient
heat by preventing its escape through
the clnmuey. On a South Carolina farm
ho said, he once knew a heavy iron
chain to be missing. After a long search
it was found melted hi to h shapeless
mass, at the bottom of a charcoal pit.
If hero was heat enough confined iu
that pit to melt iron, lie felt sum that ha
could melt bronze in his Lalf-uudcr-ground
furnace. So ho persevered, and
the logic of events in time proved that
