A MYSTERIOUS FAT GERMAN IN A
NEW YORK FERRYHOUSE.

Ho was a fat German. He looked as
if he might ho a prosperous saloon k?rp
rr. He ti)inaiized hid entrance into the
Cfirtlnndt Ktrent ferry honse by a series
of hind meows which Fonmled so natural
that tho half hundred pmplo who wer
waiting for tho boat looked around for
the cuts. The fat man was under the
weather. He strolled otot to the team
radiator in the center of tbo room, and
in a couple of minutes voices were
heard. First they were in the uorthsaM
corner of tho room cp near tbo ceiling.
Somo ono up there seemed to be carrying
on an animated conversation with him

The women in the f erryhonse began to
look nervous. They gnzr-d at tho ceiling

toa Tho fat German stood by tho radi
ator, his hen'i over his breast, and teem
ed to bo sound asleep.
"Fire! Fire! Fire!" cried a voice in
tho southwest comer.
Everybody jumped up. The women
(rrabbed tho arms of their escorts. The
fat German Ktill slept, and the voice
sounded again, tLi3timo seemingly from
tho platform of an automatic weighing
"Chukey, you vos a prntel Vod for

bunch your nose alretty."
This was somewhat reassuring. Ev
erybody seemed to realizo at thn same
iutant tout there was a ventriloquist
with a big range of voice around some
where, and everybody looked at the
German. Ho revuicd still to be asleep.
Dnt in a moment ho moved uneasily.
Then ho lifted the ragged stump of a
cigar ho hnd in his hand, opened his
eyes sloopily and pr.t tho stump intc
his month. Some firo was loft in tho
rigar stump, but lio didn't siin to no

The crowd was mightily interested
and gathered cluso around. IIo didn't
eceiu to like that, and ho snorted :
"Vod you dink, you vools beoble?

put the fresh cigar, lighted as it was,
back iuto lii.i ear. Ho seemed to shove
it out of sight and calmly took from Uia
other ear tho rugged butt that he had
but a moment before chewed up and
swallowed. He pulled on it. Itwas still
lighted. One of his eyelids began
"My log vos gone," ho said. "I haff
nails in my head ven vools loog nd me. "
With the tips of his fingers ho lifted
tho twitching lid and pulled cut a five
inch iron spike, like those used to fasten
down steel rail.
"Ivosdorn do ono beice off iron al
retty if you beobles dond ka'vit," he
snorted, and he pulled another spike
from the other cyo. At the same instant
the ragged butt disappeared, uud iu its
place was another fresh cigar. Ho lit
that. Next he pulled a couple of yards
of muslin out of his month and wiped
his eyes, after which he put back the
spikes. He seemed to drive them right
into tho ball of either eye. The women
wero hhocked and turned away. He
pulled a whisky glass from his pocket.

it into bis mouth and ate it. At least it
disappeared. Then he tackled the other
page, and that went

woman, "he must bo hungry. But bow

Tho second page was gone, all but a

bulged. A voice over his head said :
"C'fankey, you've god doo much; yon

Ho seized tho corner of tho paper that
was Mil ling out aud began pulling at
it. It came in tho shapo of a perfect

COLOR .SCHEME FOR SMALL HOUSE.
Is Old Bine Predominate la Parlor, Li
brary and XMnlna; Room.
How few people when furnishing a
Email bouse or flat remember that eld
blue is ono of the hapxiiest colors to
choooo for a foundation, writes Frances
Ann Hoadlcy in Tho Ladios Home
Journal. In a bouse where, as a rule,
all the rooms open into one another, es
pecial care must be taken to preserve
harmony. It is better then to select one
color which shall run through all tho
rooms. Old blue is the color par excel
lence in such a case, combined with tan,
gray or white for tho rugF, while the
same scheme prevails in tho heavy dra
peries. A lovely little house in mind has a
parlor and library in one. Tho hugo
rug, covering the greater part of the
room, is old blue and gray. In front of
the fireplace is a long, light gray fur
one. A bread, low lounge is covered
with dark gray. It is always better to
cover a lounge in a solid color, as it
takes more kindly to tho pillows of end
less hues. Tho large dining room rug
is old bluo and tan, with smaller rugs
of tawny brown. The bedroom has an
old blue and white large rng aud white
fur smaller ours. Let old bluo predomi
nate everywhere in the floor furnishings
and draieries, but not to the exclusion
cf all other colors elsewhere, for where
ono color only is used tho effect as a
whole is flat. Let thero bo odd bright
color touches in tho way cf pillows,
lamp shauo3, odd bits of china and
bric-a-brac, but with always an cyo to
what is the proper color for each room.
Whin all furnished be careful to see
whether all of tho rooms blcud into a

three pieces of fresh old mahogany aro
added. Each heightens tho other's beau

famished entirely iu mahogany gives
a heavy, dismal effect, but in a purlor
and library combined, say in a flat or
small house, place a large, quaintly
carved old desk and one of three highly
polished, round card tables, and see
what an air they givo to the modern
and equally beautiful furniture. In the
dining room a squaro mahogany tablo
with a surfaco like glass, and even a
small buffet or china cabinet, will be
qnito enough of tho antiqno to set off
everything else in tho room. Have ex
quisitely drawn linen doilies, candles in
rose colored shades and a profusion of,
say, pink carnations and you have a
lovely luucb table. In a house the ball
should be a leading feature enticing,
not cold, bare and cheerless, repelling

house and its mistress. A ball is liko
HERE'S A NUT TO CRACK.
A Fiuia That May Give at Letenre ailnd
Something to Think Of.
I have found tho following interest
ing problem in an old notebook, writes
Sir Walter Eesant I have no recollec
tion at all cf its origin. Perhaps every
body knows it Perhaps everybody dees
not. Those who do not will find it, I
think, unless they bring algebra to bear
upon It, lather a tongh nut to crack.
Here it is. Once there were three nig
gers their wickedness is a nczligiblo
quantity; it does not enter into tho
problem who robbed on orchard, car
ried away tho cpplcs in a 6aek, laid
them up in a barn for the night and
went to bed. One of them woke up be
fore dawn, and, being distrustful of
his fiicudu, thought ho would make
suio of his sharo at once. Ho therefore
went to the barn, divided tho apples in
to threo equal heaps thero was one
over, which he threw awav and car
ried off his share. Another nigger then
woke up with the same uneasiness and
tho same resolution. He, too, divided
the apples into three heaps thero was
one over, which he threw away took
his share, and carried it off. And then
the third nigger woke up with the same
emotions. He, too, divided the remain
ing apples into three portions there
was tno over, which he threw away
took bis sharo and departed.
In tho morning every ono preserved
silence over his doings of the night ;
they divided the apples which were left
iuto threo heaps one was over, which
they threw away and so took each his
share. How many apples were there in
tho 6ack? There ure many possible an
swersa whole series of numbers but
let us have the lowest number of apples
possible. Senior wranglers must be good
enough not to answer this question.
Moralists, if they please, may narrate
the subsequent history of these three
niggers, apart from the problem of their
