often mistaken for myself. At Vi years of
age, a bright, noble boy, that great scourge
of childhood, K-arh t fever, roblied hiua of
those two most pr ious faculties, speech and
hoarin. When I ba.1 secured the position of

the promise of opisjrtunitv to perfect myself

posed and enrriwi out his purpose to

and so diligently did hn pursue his
labor that, rnaim-d as ho was, he ac
quired ly ronstttut ract ico what would seem
an impossibility, l.o rwid the fast recurring
clicks of the Morse iustruments, not by sound,
as is the rule with telegraphers, but from the

quick pulsations of the lit tie brass armature
beneath his sensitive touch.
'It was well aloiig into the ice harvest of
winter thut one da Col. Tracy, agent in the
town for one of the larger ice companies, the
chief industry of the town, entered the office
and after a cheer;' greeting, announced the
fact that f l,0i0 in greenbacks was expected
on the evening exj ress, to be used by him iu
pajing the hands on the morrow. 'And,
boys,' he added, 'as I suppose you dont care
to keop that amount over night, perhaps
you'd better deliver it to meat the house;
then I'll lock it in my safe and he ready with
the pay roll in the morning, for the men will
be anxious for their scrip.' We were willing
to please the coloi el, and readily consented
to do as he wished. During that afternoon a
furious storm of snow set in. Trains were
delayed, and, in co lsequence, it was after tl
in the evening when' the express jiarcels, and
among them the precious bundle of cash, ar
rived at the office. Ours was a small office,
supporting no do ivery tuam, and as one
of us must act a; messenger, my brother
proposed doing so while I settled up the
day's business. Hi d there been a thought of
danger in the em nd to disturb us I never
should have consented to his going alone:
being none, I gave a gesture of thanks as he
buttoned tightly his coat about him, seized
tho parcel and stepped out into the storm.
Alone in the otlice, the day's husincs was soon
put to order and the few express parcels
checked frotn the wny bill. Thou, seated in
my brother's chair, I fell into a reverie upon

there came a message of special importance,

, EAGER TO BE JOURNALISTS.
Newspaper Offices Flood'id with Reqneata
for Chance to Draw a Blank.
"I think every 1 young man and young
woman in this town wants to go into jour
nalism." The speaker was one of the best known
managing editors in New York city, and he
passed his band over his troubled brow as he
"I get about forty applications per day
from men and women who want to become
journalists, and the proprietor of this paper
gets twice as many more. A young man
whom I know to be malting $100 per week
in tbe dry goods business came to me and
offered li work for $'25 per week as a re
portar. , It make, me a trifle weary. If these
young men and women knew how many
blanks there are In this lottery aud how few
prizes drawn they would quit."
This managing editor was in a bad humor,
but be was all right as to facts. There isnt
a newspaper office in town that isn't flooded
with applications for work. The prizes in
New York journalism are few. You are
reasonably sure of drawing a blank pretty
nearly every time. There are more than
1,000 hard working newspaper men in New
York city. Outside of their own offices and
tho New York 1'ross club not two dozen ol
them are known to t he geueral public. Those
who are well known ouUide of New York

Charles A. Dana is, perhaps, tho most fa
inous cr tho men who havo drawn prizes. Ai
tilitor of The Sun he draws a salary of $&5,00t
lur year, and from other sources his income it
swelled to ttlwiut $150,000 per year, upon which
he manages to livo very comfortably, aided bj
a French conk, whose income income is big
ger than that of a congressman. Dana started
on The New York Tribune at a salary of $U
per week. He stalled in a small way from a
town in the interior of Ohio. Joseph Pulitzer,
of The World, is said to clear $2,000 per day.
Ho is not a working journalist oow, but not
many years ugo ho was an ordinary reporter
in tit. Louis, and they say ho was a hustler,
too. Whitelaw Roid, as a mattor of form,
draws a salary of some $15,000 per year from
The Tribune, but his income from his stock
in the paper is several times this amount.
John A. Cocker ill is one of the working
managing editors and newspuper men, and
draws a salary of $15,000 per year from
The World, and has an interest in it
besides. Cockerill was a typo, and fought hit
way up from the ranks. Amos Cummin gs it
said to have an Income of $15,000 per year.
He was a compositor and a private in thf
Union army during the rebellion, and he,
too, came from the bottom up to where he it
now. Chester A. Ixrd, the managing editor
of The Sun, has a t&iary of $7,500 per year.
He started on a small fiaper in the interior of
this state, and bad to work hard for success
But he is little known outside of New York.
George F. Spinney, as managing editor ol
Tho New York Times, has a salary of about
$7,000 per year. But he has been a hard
working journalist all his life, and the salary
is not so much. He, too, is little knowu out
sklo of Now York.
There are probably fifty or sixty men whe
are simply writers, like P.lakely Hall and
Jnlian Ualph, who earn anywhere from $.V
to flSO per week, but, with the exception of
the men named, and four or five more, thej
are never heard or spoken of except in theii
own homes and circles.

The popular ballad, "Listen to the Mock
ing Bird," was written and first published in
IS.V, by Septimus Winner, of Philadelphia,
under the nom de plumo of "Alice Haw
thorne," his mother's maiden name. It wa?
suggested incidentally by listening to a col
ored man, Dick MUburn, known as "Whist
ling Dick," who wandered about the city
whistling in imitation of a mocking bird, at
the same time strumming an acoompaniment
upon the guitar. Struck by his remarkable
performance as a warbler Mr. W. said to
him one day, half in jest, "Dick, HI write
you a song . for your mocking bird." The
compass of the colored man's voice wa
hardly an octave, and, as will be observed,
the melody was made very simple, so as not
to bo iwyond his reach. The words "Listen
to the Mocking Bird," which ran higher,
were to lie spoken by him, not sung, except
where they came within his compass, fol
lowed by the whistler's marvelous imitation
Of the bird.
1 The man was a very good natured fellow,
but of so little intellectual capacity that
though he came to Mr. Winner's music store
night after uight to laarn the words of the
song, he was never able to master more than
one verse of it. Such, however, was his
sense of the comic and such his facility in Im
provising lines to the music, suggesting ridi
culous fancies to attract the crowd, that his
"Mocking Bird" soon added greatly to Dick's
local reputation. The song was published is
liallad form, and at once became very popular,
and such is its hold upon the public fancy that
although it lias been sung and whistled and
played the country over for an average life
time, it still retains its place as a song of na
tional reputation. Philadelphia Record.
Ate live Dozen Raw Ece
- A boiler maker named Howe astonished the
epicures at Seheffer & Korlingor's restaurant,
Baltimore, by offering to bet $5 that he could
eat, without intermission, Ave dozes raw
eggs, shells and all. A doubting Thomas ac
cepted the offer, and the freshest chicken
fruit obtainable was placed before the boiler
maker. Tho latter, a hale and lusty mechanic,
unbuttoned hui vest and prepared for busi
ness. The first two dozen disappeared within
half an hour, the eater apparently enjoying
his meal. He was not so fresh getting atflay
with the third dozen, and took more time,
still swallow in g the fourth. He kept at work,
however, and finally succeeded in dispatch
ing the last twelve, though not without an
f His method was a peculiar one. He took;
up one egg orter the other, and, after sucking
it dry, tossed the shell into his mouth, and,
after crunching it into powder, swallowed
that also. When ha had finished hia job he
drew from his pocket a beer bottle filled with
alcohol, used in a spirit lamp, and drank
down the Quid. Turning to the astonished
speotntorE, ho offered to eat seven dozen mors
without tho shell, but no one took him up.

If you have made up your mind to buy
Hood's Sarsaparllla do not he induced to take
any other. Hood's Sarsaparllla is a peculiar
medicine, possessing, by virtue of its peculiar
combination, proportion, and preparation,
curative power superior to any other article.
A Boston lady who knew whut she wanted,
and whose example is worthy imitation, tells
her experience below:
"In one store where I went to buy Hood's
Sarsapatilla the clerk tried to induce me buy
their own Instead of Hood's; he told me thelr's
would last longer; that I might take it on ten
days' trial; that it I did not like It I need not
pay anything, etc. But he could not prevail
on me to change. I told him I knew what
Hood's Sarsaparllla was. I had taken it, was
satisfied with it, and did not want any other.
When I began taking Hood's Sarsaparllla
I was feeling real miserable, suffering
a great deal with dyspepsia, and so weak
that at times I could hardly stand. I looked,
and had for some tune, like a person- In con
sumption. Hood's Sarsaparllla did me so
much good that I wonder at myself sometimes,
and myfrlends frequently speak of it." Mas.
