VIEWS OF A CONDUCTOR ON A
' BROOKLYN SURFACE ROAD.
PRMeiigrrn VTio Do Not Know Wlien to
Got Out Those Who Keep the Cr
Waiting Unpleasant Remark Aimed at
the Conduct or Tho Kind School Teacher.
"Franklin and De Kalb avenues, madam;
please hurry! Yes. we cut through Frank
lin at De Kal . Oh, yes, 1 11 let you;know,
with pleasure, when we reach the turn all
right, Jack, ! t her go'' and th courteous
conductor, wl.o had stepped to tho street out
of reach of t he bell rope to admit his lady
passenger, resumed his position on the rear
platform of one of the cars of the latest rail
road in the ci' y.
"I supposo,'' the conductor remarked after
the car had started, "that I repeat the in
formation yon have just heard me give that
lady at least two hundred times a day.
Queer creatures women are, ain't theyf aud
the railroad employe start, a after his last
passenger's fa e.
Th couductor was in a communicative
mood. It was his first trip after dinner. He
looked like a man who had enjoyed his mid
day meal, ai d seemed to get considerable
satisfaction out of a woodn toothpick which
protruded fro n one corner of his mouth.
"Of all the nositions in life," he continued,
after he had dexterously tossed the nickel
into the bulgi ig side pocket of his coat, "a
o.'vT conductor's place is the most wearisome.
U'ithlotsof fresh air and no one to bother
him from morning to night, a car driver
grows fat, but. tho man on the tail end, who
has to unswer innumerable questions, gradu
ally loses flesh. I.ook ut me," he continued.
He wus assured thut his appearance indi
catedhe might luivo tipped the scales at 200
poundsthat with good care h might live
for a few days, and he seemed to feel better.
Just then a fe ninine shriek was heard from
the rear, and simultaneously grasping the
bellropound tjrning his head, the conductor
encountered other enemies to his peace of
mind. The car had passed Adelphi street
nnd gone a considerable distance and two
ladies w ho ha 1 evidently just turned the cor
ner were signaling the veh'ele to stop. The
car was brou ;bt to a standstill and the la
dies walked leisurely toward it.
"A little fas ter, ladies, if you please. Come
now, liulies, a little bit faster," the custodian
of the car shouted, without causing any
noticeable in rrease in the pace of his would
".My dear women, won't tou please hasten
a littlef You're delaying the car consider
ably and we'rj away behind time!"
The car had been reached by this time, but
the women bad not hurried in the least.
They were gtly assisted to the platform
and took then seats without uttering a word.
After their clothing had been smoothed out
und they bnd settled back iu their seats, one
of the new cc niers turning to her companion
remarked in i voice suliiciently distinct to
be heard on the rear platform:
"Whut lion id bears these car conductors
are. They d ju't know how to treat ladies.
Why, if you'd let them they'd hurry the life
out of every woman who ixitrouizes a street
car. Well, I can just tell them that they'll
never hurry ne;" and the speaker looked
daggers toward where the conductor stood,
"ion overheard my fair passenger's re
marksT the aileged cause of the trouble in
quired of tho writer. "Well, I get a good
deal of that. I'd been dead long ago if looks
could kill. I sometimes experience a relief
from all this i hat my tormentors little dream
of. For instance, if a pretty girl with big,
dazzling eyes there is one of such among the
patrons of tbn lino gets on the car and
hurry hor a li'tle and I take particular care
to hurry the fair lady in question her face
flushes, her e es dance, and she at once as
sumes an atti: udo of defiance. Once seated,
she turns her gaze upon me as if she would
devour me. I watch her stealthily and find
much pleasure in studying the play of her
features. When I approach her for her fare
she extends her arm and drops the coin
quickly into my palm. She shows her ab
horrence and disgust by the evident fear that
her joweled Angers will come into contact
with my hand. 1 pretend the coin she has
given me is a little defaced. 'Won't you
please exchange this nickel for a better
pieceP I quietly ask her. 'I don't think 1
gave you tha; piece,' she replies, angrily, un
miudlul of the fact that I am enjoying her
discomfiture all the while, 'but here's an
other. Iow see ir that's good,' and her
anger is at fever heat, i return to the rear
of the car and can almost read her thoughts,
which, if exp -essed, would no doubt wish me
all the ills tut t humanity is heir to. As she
alights she th -ows me au angry glance, which
says almost as plain as words, 'I'd like tq
scraicu your eyes out, you urutor As 1 sai
before, I cnj"y this huge) v. It's the onl
plan of revecge left open to mo against a
race that rual.o my life a burden."
He alternately fumbled tho coins In his
pockets and lanced at his watch, and was
about to add something, evidently, to his al
ready expressed remarks in condemnation of
the female sex genorally, wheu the car stop
ped and a vi ry ordinary looking little wo
man got on. Uer plain features were bright
ened by a smiie of recognition as she caught
tho couductor s eye.
"Why, gool afternoon, Jliss Smith,"
saiu pieasanuy, - i nau uimost lorgotton you
today. Am t you a little early this after
noon?" "Yes, there was a death among the teach
ers yesterday and we dismissed school early.
It's very pleasant weather, isn't ill" and the
school oia'an. quietly entered the car and
opened one of the books which nestled on her
An instants neous chango seemed to come
over the car n a:i's whole nature. His face wus
suffused witl. blushes, the angry light in his
eyes gave way to a look of pleased surprise
aud his step seemed lighter us ho went after
tho latest pus-enger's fare.

worn overcoat had been again fitted Into the

and assisted t to school teacher to alight. He
touched his ct.p respectfully as ho let go of

LIFE'S SAD SIDE.
One of the Many Case of Misery Discov
ered by .Lady Reporter.
No. 6. Within a dozen rods of a large
cchool building, in a neichborhood filled
with neat dwellings of prosperous people,
stands a large weather beaten frame house.
About the eaves and cornices, dripping with
moisture, are rotting edges of fanciful wood
work, and the imposing steps sink soddenly
under the tread. It isaplctnreof decayed
gentility. So did 1 finB it a fitting habita
tion for its inhabitants.
An old lady was trying to make a fire of
damp, cheap coal, ani put on another lump
from the scanty supply in the market basket
as I entered.
"It's cold, dear. At least there is a fire to
keep warm by. My daughter has gone over
to the hospital."
"Is sho sick?"
"Oil, yes, she's sick. Her husband died of
catarrh of the stomach and she has the dis
ease from him. It is nearly four years since
"What work does she dor
"Nothing. She is like a dead woman now.
After -her husband died she came to us with
her four children. kept a lodging bouse
then and gave her the top floor. But we lost
money und had to mortgage the furniture to
get .ait. Then we lost it all and now have
nothing. 1 was too old to keep the house
right. I am ftl and my husband GS. He is
in the hospital for sciatica, and bad. He
will never d any more."
"But what do you live on J"
"The little boy, who is 10 years old, isa
cash boy, aud gets- 1.50 a week. That is all
there is. The Relief society has paid the
"No, there is only that little coal yon see
in the basket, and a little bread. The boy
should havo tietter food, he works so bard,
and the other children cannot keep warm."
"Is your daughter warmly clothed?"
"Sho never complains. She sits and looks
at the fire and at the children, and savs noth
ing, only goes off to bed and lies there like
one dead. She eats nothing and is in such
pain. Sometimes she cauuot 8eak for the
pain. The toy is a brave little fellow."
There was some good furniture that cost
perhaps ?JO0, but which has been used so long
it would not sell for $30. This belonged to
the widowed daughter, and is all that is left
out of tho wreck of the fortuues of two fami
A neighoor was interviewed concerning
"Ah! that is a sad case. I should like to
soe the mother die in peace. She cant live
Ion?. The grandfather is in the hospital and
the grandmother feeble. They are proud
and refined and wholly destitute. The brave
little fellow plods all this long distance to his
work and gives all bis money to his mother.
He could not have kept bis place, his clothes
were so bad, but the Relief so jet y dressed
him so be could remain. ou cannot exag
gcrate this case if you use every adjective at
your command. I give them what I can, but
it is a big family. The widowed mother
should go to bed and stay there till death re
leases her. But the hunger of her children
urges her to wander out whenever she can
stand to try to do something."
Ihere were tears in the good woman's
eyes. Nora Marks in Chicago Tribune.
Ball and Pythons.
One of the most remarkable scenes on rec
ord was reported as having been witnessed in
the vicinity of lable mountain. A troop of
cattle, consisting of twelve cows and a patri
archal old bull, were grazing on one of the
plateau bko spurs of the mountain, which is
surrounded on three sides by precipitous
ravines, and ou the fourth side, that nearest
the mountain, by dense bush. Some natives
higher up the mountain were attracted by
the suddeu bellowing of the cattle, and saw
two enormous pythons coming out of the
bush aud making for the cattle, which bad
drawn themselves up in a compact group
with the bud at Its head. As the pythons
drew near the animals gradually backed till
they stood on a small space that jutted out
over a tremendous precipice.
At this staje a sudden rush was made, but
only one boiler succeeded in escaping. Th
other cattle, bellowing most piteously, grad
ually backed, and one by one fell over the
precipice till Lnally the bull only was left.
Ho suddenly charged at tho big python, trans
fixing the reptile ou his horns, but the second
snake seized the bull in its folds and, having
its urn urouua a nuge bowlder, commenced
to crush the bull, which, moaning piteously,
struggled frantically to escape. The tail of
the python lost its hold of the rock, but the
larger snake, which bad slipped oil the horn,
lapping its tail around a small bowlder oppo
site t no one the other snake bad just released,
seized the bull and compressed the animal in
its scaly fold. The other python succeeded
in regaiuing its former position, and the buli
was literally suspended in mid air by the
The whole scene looked like some ghastly
triumphal march. Tho snakes were evidently
getting the best of the poor brute, which was
bleeding profusely, when, by a sudden effort,
his struggles forced both reptiles to loose their
hold of the rocks, and the whole three were
hurled into the ravine beneath.
The cattle were found on the first ledge of
toe precipice, all being dead, but the bull and
the pythons bad bounded from ledge to ledge.
and were found 400 feet helow the scene of the
fight. The bull was merely a mangled mass,

A True Subject for Humor.
Most everybody from the north speaks
slightingly ot the raror back bog. People
make fun of the animal who never tried to
be funny before. He is a good subject to
begin on. Last week a Michigan man and a
Georgian were riding along together down
this way, and a tall, dramatic hog, known as
the Sura Uernhardt bog, came out of the
forest like a pattern for a side of pork cutout
of paste boards. As the papier mache brute
taded out of sight, the Michigan man sat
back and sighed in a heartbroken way. Then
in a moment be brightened up again as he
saw another just like the one he had lost sight
ot a moment before. Sitting up with a glad
smile, be said: "Colonel, by jimrainy, there's
trio other half of that hog." Bill Nye in New

Is Gold Dust Washing Powder. Why ? Because it's made to
fill a want, and does what it's made for. Cheaper than the cheapest.
