A prominent New York coal mer
chant, while showing a Pittsburg friend
about New York on tho occasion of the
lattcr's first visit to the metropolis, took
him to the top of one of the very high
est buildings in town and pointed out
to him tho different objects of interest
that could be seen. The western man
took in tho beautiful view of tho bay
and then looked northward over miles
and miles of roofs and chimneys, over
the vast expanse- of street and park.

then turned to his friend with tlio re

to him was that it was so clear. Not a

clear and brilliant in the sun of a bril
liant winter day. New York was clean
and neat and the greatest possible con
trast to the dincy and grimy cities of
the west, where the use of coal is not
restricted to certain kinds.
The coal dealers of New York are
legion and the business has grown to
immense proportions. Tho ease with
which coal can be shipped to New York
and unloaded in order to get it to the
market with the least possible handling
has contributed to a great extent to the
success which New York coal merchants

The Wheel Caught tho Fox,
One 'day toward night, while I was
passing through a wooded section of the
country close to the broader line between
Connecticut and Massachusetts, a red fox
suddenly dropped into the middle of tho
road. The soft gliding motion of the
rubber tires did not attract his attention
until tho cycle was within a rod of him.
Then with a wild scamper he started on
a dead run toward a distant swamp. The
creature was fleet of foot, and he swept
down the dusty road rapidly, turning
his head occasionally to watch the
strange apparition following him, and
ho laid his body almost flat upon tho
ground in his endeavor to outrun the
new pursuer. But it was no use. Tlio
wheel slowly overhauled him, foot by
foot, and the front wheel almost brushed
his bushy tail before he acknowledged
defeat Then, with a half sob and vein,
tho creature jumped clean over the ad
joining ditch and landed safely on the
nether grassy bank. The wheel flashed
past him, and he remained seated upon
his haunches watching it until out of
sight, probably the most astonished fox
that ever roamed the woods. New York

A Portland citizen tells about a pious
speculation in foot warmers, way back
in the thirties, when churchgoers de
pended on little individual box stoves to
keep their toes from freezing. These
were about a foot square, tho frame of
wood, the side of wire nettimr or cast
iron perforated, and with a deep sliding
pan in which were placed about Jhree
pints of hot hard wood coals, or some
times charcoal. Every family group go
ing to church would carry several of
these stoves. Finally the janitor of tho
second parish, a Mr. Leech, undertook
to take charge of all stoves for $1 each
during the winter. He would bring them
to church every Sunday morning, full
of live coals, and place them in the pews
where they belonged. As he had GO or
more of the toe ticklers to care for, he
must needs have had a big bank of coals
to draw upon. Portland Tunes.
