and tho old KenUtluit nro RoiiiR to write

twenty-dollar IdlU chunked, and the
folks you run over, and the wakoiih that
run into you, I tell you a Uih tail car
driver K'etHBUvaeufU'r awhile and don't
feel like foolin'.
I wan anviiKO that day. Thero wore
two folks in the car a man and a wo
man and only one faro in tho lox. I'd
rung and I'd Minuted, but neither of
them attended to me. I laid tho missing
faro to the man U.t-uue of his looks, lie
was about as ioverty stricken ax I ever
saw. Not your tailoring man's )verty.
A luUircr out of work never looked like
that. It was tramp's rai.'s this fellow
wore, and ho had the hamU of a tramp
too. Under their dirt a tramp's hands
are like tho hands of a lino gent leinan
same reason, he don't work. This man's
hands wero clean, anil his face wasn't
liad; but it was more likely he was try
inn 1,1 '"'"t ""' utof five cents than that
the lady was. And if he was a tramp he
had money enough nlsiut him they al
ways liiive mid after I'd done my best
from nulside. I stopicd the car and went
to attend to him. The minute I got in 1
saw what it seemed to me sort of ijueer
I hadn't noticed before the lady was a
Mister of Charity. She wore a black bon
net and veil, and a white thing under it
around her forehead and under her chin.
Her hands wero crossed in her hip. She
was as holy and pure to look at as if
she'd Ihh-ii nn angel. I looked at her, and
then I said to the man:
"I want your fare."
IIo looked at me hungry eye lie had
and says he:
"I paid five cents Into your box isn't
that right, driver!1"
"All right, if you did it," said I.
Then I went down toward tlio lady. It
was my duty, but I found it hard to do.
I stood before her feeling as queer as
ever I did in all my life, and all I could
' Madam, shall I take your fare?"
She did not answer me, but pointed to
a paper somebody had left upou the seat
a common nowsper.
"Give it to him," I seemed to see her
say with her liis and by "bliu" I saw
she meant the tramp,
Now, a paper left In the car belonged
to me, and I'm a man with a temper,
and at my wages the price of a paper
was something: so, what do you think,
then, of my going and handing that
paper over to that tramp, as meek as
"Hers," says I, poking It toward him.
"It isn't mine," says he.
But my eyes wero ou the sister all the
"Tho lady says you uiunt tuke it,"
Now, shn hadn't said anything; she
had only lifted her baud,
"Wlnt lady?" said the man, taking
"The sister there," said I.
Then all of a sudden, whllo I looked
at her, the scat tho ludy hail been sitting
on was empty! Site hadn't got up on
her feet or moved. 8he just wasn't there
any more, and I got out to my horses
again as quick us I could. Men do go
out of their heads from overwork, I'm
told, anil I begun to think I was going
out of mine. I did not dare to look back
Into the cur until tho tuan luside pulled
back tho slide nnd Suke.
"Driver," he said, "gfvo me your
name and residence."
"What fort" I asked.
"No harm," said he.
"Do you meun to try to get mo Into
trouble?' I asked, knowing that there
were "spotters" about and muking up
my mind that this was ono in disguise.
"I tifed my Is-st to get that laity's faro,
but I couldn't be rojli to a sister."
"I saw no lady, What do I euro about
the fares'" said tho man. "If you give
mo your name you'll not be sorry for It,
He spnko like a gentleman, for all his
"Oh, well, I'm not ashamed of my
name It's Jim Ilrown. This car Is No.
, and If you want me you can And
"All rt'lit," ho sold; and I saw that he
had foldnd tho paper squaro and was
fastening it up in his coat, pinning It
with a black lieaili d pin,
At the next corner he got off.
That night I went to Dr. , as kind
a mnn as ever lived. I know ho wouldn't
charge 1,10 'or an opinion, I told him
"Now, doctor," I said, "If Tm loonny,
out with ill"
"No, no, Jim," said ho; "very sane
men havo optical Illusion now and
"I don't want any nioro of 'em," sold
L Collecting fares of optical Illusions
don t pay."
"I should say not," said tho doctor,
"Hut my opinion Is that you turned
your back a minute and that the woman
. m ... w 4
got on witnout paying ner tare. IToo
sblyslie was not a real Sister of Charity.
The city is full of frauds. She made
you tako tlio paper to the mnn to give
herself a chance, 8uo now?"
I didn't see; but what can you do
when folks are so sensible they can't be
"Twasu't like that there she was
and there alio wasn't," said I, "Tliut's
how it w as."
"If it happens ngnin, come to me and
I'll write you a prescription and make
you a present of it," said the doctor.
Ko I thanked him kindly and went
away, nnd it didn't happeu again. And
weeks went along, and it was winter,
und as cold as (irccnland, and itassen
gers more bothersome than I ever knew
'em, when ono day, standing in the
stables, talking to Mike (lidlagher, the
old fellow thai watered the horses and
always had a joke for everybody, I
heard my name calliil.
"You're wanted Jim," said some one,
and I went out into the stnt't, and the
man that hud called mo Miinted to a
gentleman alsiut as fine a looking one
as ever I knew aud ho, the gentleman,
walked up to mo.
"It's your dinner time, isn't it?" said
"Yes, slr.'suid I. "I've got a few
"Come along, then," said ho. lie
walked mo into a restaurant closo by the
stables, and said: "Call for what you
want," and I named It. Then said he:
"You dou't remember me, Jim Drown?"
"No. sir," said I.
"You gave mo a paier about six
niontlis ago," said he. "A newspaper.
I asked your name."
"Oh, oh I" said I. "No, sir, I didn't
know you. I begin to see tho likeness,
but you you"
"I know," said lie. "I was pretty
well down on my luck, then. See here"
he unbuttoned his coat, a seal skin,
bless you, and took out of the breast
pocket a newspaper "read that," he
said, pointing to where it was folded,
I read it. This is what it said:
"If Ferdinand Melrose will return
home all will lie forgiven by his dying
father," and after that where he was to
inquire for "further particulars."
"Well, I am Ferdinand Melrose," say
the gentleman. "The lil.ick shi-ep of my
family. Img ago my stepmother made
mischief lift ween my father and myself.
IIo fnrbado me bis house, and I rather
went to the Iswl. No matter for my
story. Divides the fare you inquired
alsiut I had only a bottle of laudanum in
my pocket. I was going to the Central
park to take It. I should have slept my
self out of life into eternity, and the city
would have seen to my funeral if you
had not given me that pacr. I went to
the place mcntioiii-d, and found, as I ex
pected, that money had In-en left in a
lawyer's hands to lake me homo. Wlien
I got there I found that my sU'pmotber
had been dead tlin-e years, and that my
father had U'cn attacked by a disease
that must lie fatal. We were reconciled,
and when he died I found myself a rich
man. I hail kept Jim llrown's address,
and I feel that I owe him something."
"Nothing at all," says I. "The lady
the sister told me to give it to you."
"What lady?" said he.
"I'd like to know myself," said I, and
then I told him my story.
"It is strange," says he. "I could
swear that I was the only passenger
at thn time. I felt so miserable and
to shabby that I purposely waited for
an empty car. And another thing is
strange, Jim Drown," said he. "We
have a ghost iu our family. A nuo
is said to ap'ar now and then, always
to do good. And my father declared that
while he was ill she appeared to him
three times, always pointing to my por
trait, which hung in his bedroom, and
always conveying to him in some way
that it was his duty to search for me.
In fact, she was tho cause of otr recon

us spoke about the thing again; but
when ho insisted on starting ine in the
eating house line I wasn't foul enough to
refuse, and, as you sen, I ru not a bobtail

No, I haven't seen anything queer
since that time, and I can't say I'm anx

or w hat the doctor called an optical de

Loniion, May 8. A letter from St.

this fear was the motive of his sudden

while there would Iw no workingmen's
