Wo'vo been at this placo goin1 on two
weeks, now. Tho ocean is tho samo
old ocean as it was last Summer, and
Aunt Jnno says it's stupid. Aunt Jano
thinks nioio of hoi dog than sho docs of
tho glorious 8ishorothatstrotches from
Maine to Capo Good Hopo and clean on
round to San Francisco. Ono day I had
Tonto, which is the dog's front name,
down on tho beach, and all at oneo,
wbilo mo and Jimmy was throwln'
shells to try to hit a porpus, which is
liko u big pig, wo heard Ponto fotch an
awful yelp, liko ho was hit with a brick.
Mo nnil Jimmy run after Pont, but we
couldn't catch him, for a monstrous big
crab, as big as my hat, had him by the
tail and was chowin' away at his sup
per. "Tho monster of tho deep," as
Sister Sue's young man called tho crab,
appeared to enjoy his supper, nud may
bo ho thought it was llvo kinds of ieo
cream on otu plate. Tho .crab steered
Ponto in regUar Maud S. tinio right
straight to Aunt Jane's lap as sho was
catin1 dinner with tho colonol, whoo
eldo whlskors riz up from fright and
brushed off his eye-glasses, and such
scrcamin' us Aunt Jano did drqyncd
tho awful roar of tho ocoau. Mo and
Jimmy havo got tho crab now. Wu
keep him tied to our bed-post and
neitlier Aunt Jauo nor Pont will eomo
within a niilo of him. Ho's u terror,
anyhow, and I'd rather havo iv full
blooded crab with a pedigrco than tho
biggest dog in old Philly. I heard
mother tell father next day that tho
crab comin' in ups't all tho plans, for
tho colonol was about "coming down to
business." Aunt Jnno has boon weepin'
to herself over sinco.
Talkin' about this puis mo in mlud of
a jolly tirao mo and Jimmy had day bu
foro yesterday with Sister Suo and hor
young man. Mr. Perkins is his namo

Mr. Perkins went a Hshin' and got somo

A Terrible Mlatnko.
I havo been In tho back bedroom up
stairs all tho afternoon, and I nm ox-
Iicctlng father every minute. It was
ust nftcr ono o'clock when ho told mo
to eomo upstairs with him, nnd Just then
Mr Thompson camo to get him to go
down town with him, nnd father said
I'd havo to excuse him for u llttlo while
and don't you go out of that room till
I eomo back. So I excused him and ho
hnsn't eomo back jot; but Pvo opened
ono of tho pillows and stuffed my
clothes full of feather.', nnd I don'tcaro
much how soon ho comes back now.
It's nn awful feeling to bo waiting up
stairs for your father, and to know thnt
you havo ilono wrong, though you really
didn't moan to do so much wrong as
you have done. I am willing to own
that nobody oil' lit to tnko anybody's
clothes when ho s In swimming, but
anyhow they commenced It llrst, and I
supposed just as much us could bo that
tho clothes were theirs.
Tho real boys that aro to blamo oro
Tom Wilton nnd Amzl Willctts. A
week ago S:tturdaj Joe Hamilton and I
went in swimming down nt tho island.
It's n beautiful place. Tho Island Is all
full of btishiM, nud on one sldo the wa
ter is deep, where tho big boys go in,
and on tho other It is shallow, where wo
fellows that can't swim very much
where tho wntor U moro than two feet
deep co lu. Whilo Joe nnd I were
swimming. Tom nud Amzl came and
stole our clothes, nnd put them In their
boat, and carried them clear across to
tho deep part of tho river. Wo saw
them do It, nnd wo had an awful lime
to get the clothes back, and I think It
was jut as mean
Joo nnd I said wo'd cot oven with
them, and I knew it wus wrong, because
it was n revengeful feeling, but anyhow
wo said we'd do It; and I don't think
rovengo is so vory bad when you don't
hurt n fellow, and wouldn't hurt lilm
.for anything, nnd just want to play him
a trick that is pretty nearly almost
iullo innocent. But 1 don't s:iy wo did
rignt, ana wncn I've none wrong, I'm
always ready to say so.
Well, Joo and 1 watched, and last
Sunday wo saw Tom and Amzl go down
to tho Island to go lu swimming on tho
shallow side; so wo waded across and
sneaked down among tho bushes, anil
after a while wckiw twopllcs of clothes.
So wo picked them up and ran away
with them. Tho boys sawus and mado
ntciriblo noise; but westing out that
they'd know how it felt to havo your
clothes carried oil", and we wnded back
across tho river, and carried tho clothes
to Amzi'.s housu and hid them in ills
barn, and thought that wo'd got oven
witli Tom nud Amzl, and taught them
a lesson which would do thenin great
deal of good, and would make them
good and useful men.
This was In tho morning nboiit noon,
and when I had my dinner I thought
I'd go and see how tho boys liked swim
ming, nnd offer to bring back their
clothes if they'd promise to bo good
friends. I never was more astonished
in my lifo than 1 was to find that they
were nowhere near tho island. I was
beginning to bo afraid they'd drowned,
when I heard somo men calling me,
nnd I found Squire Meredith and Amzl
Willett's fathor, who Is a deacon, hid
ing among tho bushes. Thoy told mo
that somo villains had stolen their
clothes whilo lliey wero in swimming,
nud thoy'd give me fifty cents if I'd go
up to their houses and got their wives
to give mo some clothes to bring down
1 said I didn't want the fifty cents,
but I'd go and try to ilnd somo clothes
for them. I meant to go straight up to
Amzt's barn nut to bring the clothes
back, but on tho way I met Amzl
with tht clothes in a basitct bringing
them down to the island, and lit) saiiC
"Somebody's goin' to bo arrested for
stealing fathers and Squire Meredith's
clotlus. I saw tho fellows that stole
'em, and I'm going to tell." You see,
Joo and I had taken tho wrong clothes,
nnd Squire Meredith and Deacon Wil
lctts, who had been in swimming on
tho dcop sldo of tlio island, had been
about two hours trying -to play thoy
woro Zulus, and diiln't need to wear
any clothes, only thoy found it pretty
Deacon Willctts camo straight to our
house, and told father that his unhappy
son that's what ho called me, anil
wasn't 1 unhappy, though had stolen
his clothes and bqulro Meredith s; but
for tho sake of our family ho wouldn't
say very much about it, only if fathor
thought best to snare tho rod and spoil
iv child, ho wouldn't bo ablo to regard
111 iti as n man and u brother. So father
called mo and asked mo If I had taken
Deacon Willetts's clothes, and when I
said yes, and was going to explain how
it happened, ho said that my conduct
was such, and that I was bringing li s
gray hairs down, only I wouldn't hurt
them for fifty million dollars, and Pvo
often hoird lilm say ho hadn't a gray
hair In Ills head.
And now I'm waiting up stairs for tho
awful moment to arrive. I deservo it,
for thoy say that Squ ro Meredith and
Deacon Willctts aro nior'n half eaten up
by mosqultos, and nro confined to tiio
house witli salt and wntor, and crying
out nil tho tinio that thoy can't stand it.
I hopo tho feathers will work, but if thoy

A VERY SlIAlinY OLD HOUSE.
Meaning that Wlilto Old Sepulchre, tho
Tho pretentious structure at Washing
ton whose whltness lias for nearly a ceil'
tury given to it tho namo of tho White
House, by wnioli It is known through
out tlio civilized world, is encompassed
without by malarial breezes from the
l'otomao Hats mm poisoned within by
venomous gnsscs from imperfectly
trapped sower connections. To nut a
family to llvo in such n placo is almost
ns bad as what was brought to light n
few days ago in tlio lower part of Wal
nut street, where several children had
died in ono unpleasant dwelling, owing
to the noxious vapors they wero com
pelled to Iniialo. There is moro stylo
about tho Whlto llouso than lu tho
cheap and gloomy teneniont, but foul
nir, which Is no respecter of persons, Is
much tlio samo lu onu as in tho oilier.
When tho Whlto llouso was built it was
n gorgeous structure for Its daj. lis
original cost was over a quarter of a
million dollars. Improvements and ad
ditions havo since brought its cost, with
thnt (if tiio grounds around It to six or
seven times thnt sum. The house lias
been repaired and tinkered and patched
and altered and mended until it U now
Eomothing liko nn old pair of boots
which havo bum half-soled, heeled and
footed a dozen times nud badly need

lino of modern improvements has been
added in such a fragmentary way that
it is liko patches of new cloth on an old
garment, u lien It was built modern
ideas of heat and ventilation nnd water
works wore unknown. Tho Potomac
Hats were not what tlioj nro now. They

White IIouso nt night Is t
nave increased in size, in names?, ami
Io stay in tho
to risk nn at
tack of Illness. As a residenco it is no
longer useful. To expect tho Chief
Magistrate of tho nation to llvo there Is
absurd and unreasonable. It has long
been known that the placo is not desir
able to stay In, especially in tho sum
mer. For years its occupants havo
found safety at.d comfort by going just
outside tho citj' to thu Soldiers' Home,
ltceent investigations into tho plumbing
work of tlio Whlto IIouso havo shown
that there aro somo objectionable fea
tures which would not bo allowed to ex
ist in a third-class, inn. Nor is there
any sito on tlio wliolo twenty-livo acres
of ground In tho Whlto House Inclosuio
on which n residenco for tlio President
and his fninllj could wisely bo erected.
Malaria from those pestiferous Hats poi
sons tlio whole territory. Tlio Hats are
f rowing wotso nnd worse every year. It
suggested that they bu drained. Tho
suggestion is ns sound as it is vcnerablo.
It was iiiailo long, long ago. To drain
tho Hats decently can bo dono only by
tilling them up. It would taku a dozen
years and cost i?1.000,000 a year. Some
of these days it will havo to bo done.
Meantime a new Kxccutivo residenco is
needed. Tliuro are rlcnty of places lu
Washington for it, where thu ground is
higher unit tin1 nir purer. Wo do not
need such a costly building ns kings
and emperors are proud to dwell iu.
Half a million would pay for ono quito
good enough. Tho Chief Magistrate of
this country lias a right to a homo.
Now ho lias no house of his own to live
in, but only somo rooms in an awkward
barn of n public building, the rest of
which is mado up of o Hives and is n
tramping ground for tho pcoplu of
Ameiicii and all tho re-t of creation
who eliooso to go there. Tho President
nnd his family should havo a house iu
which ha and thoy may bo as prlvatu us
the humblest citizen iu his own three-storj-
brick. It is nn evidence of the
phenomenal strength of Mr. Garfield's
constitution that ho lias lived for weeks
as lie has in that old homo, breathing
thu mcphllio air wafted into his bed
chamber from ilio'o villainous Hats. No
wonder hu wants to bo out. Let us
hopo ho will soon bo able to go where
ho can breatlio almost any other atmos
phere. Ono of tlio llrt things Con
gress should do when it noxt assembles
Us to deereo tho erection of a now and
deeout "White Houio." It will bo an
appropriate National thank-offering for
tho recovery of tho President.
Finding a Man.
Tlio dilllculties iu the way of finding
a man, not vory remarkable or separate
after ho is oneo lost In a placo like Lon
don, witli the population of a nation
and a thousand exits, must bo always
great, more especially when ho is not a
habitual criminal, speaks with tho cul
tivated voice, and has very little nionoy.
It may seem strange to many readers
that wo should placo tho want of money
to tho credit sldo of tho fugitive's
chances, but most experienced heads of
tho polico would certainly do so. Tlio
llrst impulse of a criminal posesscd of
menus is always to loavo tlio country.
Ho may know perfectly well that ho
will lio closely pursued, that If caught
ho will bo surrendered, and that thu
foreign polico is more aclivo than our
own; but ho never releases himself from
tlio Impression that distnucu Is security,
that thu people ho does not know will
wot know him, and, what Is much more
true, that after a tinio n pursuit beyond
seas must bo relaxed. Ho wants, more
over, distraction from himself, ami thu
impulso on him to bo doing something
is as strong as it Is on the polico. Ho
rushes, therefore, for tho nearest, port,
hoping to got away to America, or Aus
tralia, or the Continent, and In so doing
trebles his own chances of capture. Tho
polico know tlio ports ns v oil as their
own olllees. Tho agents for passengor
ships tiro all known persons, shins can
lie searched more readily than housos,
to escape observation iu a ship is Im
possible, and ships when thoy arrive
can bo searched again by foroij'ti detec
tives, sure, if thoy succeed, to Ilnd Unit
the capture has increased tiieir reputa
tions. A great capture under tho oyes
of Europ3 Is a national credit. Thoy
have beaten tho English polico in
shrewdness, and aro repaid by that fact
alono. There are many ports, it is true,
in England, and many passengor shins
in these ports; but still tho work is laid
out for tho pursuers, and tlio search ac
quires tho dulinitcncss which thoy first
of nil dosiro. Tho polico are not ham
pered by want of patience, but by want
of deflnito guidance in their work from
what they aro accustomed to stylo n
"eluo." It Is when the fugitive is un
nblo to omlgrato that tho polico. if oneo
at fault, fiud their serious Jabors begin.
Tito fugitive, If, as wo havo said, no ha
bitual criminal, nnd with llttlo nionov.
is then drivon either to remain in Lon
don, or to commonco wandering in tlto
country, and in oither case n successful
search Is not so easy as it looks.

A Sea-Cow from .South America.
New York Times.
Tho brig Swansea, from South Ameri
ca to to till port, brought as tv part of
its cargo n veritable sea cow, consigned
to William Drown, who has it on exhi
bition at thu Fulton Market dock. The
lish measures live feet from the end of
thu nose to tho tip of the tail, ami
weighs 100 pounds. Its nio't remark
able feature Is tho nose, which Is iu
shtipo llko that of a yearling calf. It
subsists cn.lrely on herbs, and was con
tentedly munching tlio leaves of a cab
bage last evening. Having filled its
maw, tho curious lish ruminates liko a
cow. Its back and tail are of a dark
blue color, somewhat resembling tlio
bluo fish. 11 right pink spots adorn tho
breast and bofly. Tho tall Is formed
like tlio fans of a stoamship's propeller.
It is in a siiiglo pleeo, and operates ver
tically. The eyes are small and set
closo to the nose. It generally keeps
Its body entirely under tho wntor with
tho exception of its uoso, and occasion
ally bullous liko a cow. This is tho
first of tho species which bus over sur
vived tho voyago to tills country. A
similar one was taken to London and
sold for .?d50 to tlio Aquarium. Tlio
sea-cow lives in fresh water, in tlto sense
that it is not stilt, but croton water is
allowed to stand thrco days in tho sun
before it is lihioed in tlio lish's tank. In
this condition it approximates moro
