"The Amerioan people like to be hum
bugged." Ai with P. T. Baraum so with the
managers of the "fakw, freaks and folUw"
clam of dime museums, tti'le show and trav
eling stores, this truLsm ia indelibly stamped
in letter of Rold on the comer stone of their
existence. AVere It not f.r this phase of pub

dor to look one stoadily In the face as he
asserts what he knows is utterly false; he
must be shrewd, quick And cunning la argu

be must have a certain volubility and fluency
of language with the ability to use ble words
to imprew and bail grammar to put himself
in sympathy with tho people he expects to
victimize; he must have a "plug" hat, a
showy suit of clothw, half a dozen paste dia

ton, and soiled shirt front the absence or
presence of the rest of the garment is imma
terial, but fashion has decreed in favor of
the bosom. The species is dixtint-t and the
specimens have little iu common with the
rest of humanity. The majority of them
were born in the rol., with now aud then one
who has ascended from a helper or descended
from tho "legitimate." When not "on the
road" they froquunt certain haunts in the
large citiao, usually soino fifth or sixth cla.su
hotel, eagerly watching for the latest hum
bug and devising means of securing a plant.

are certain boarding houws where they put
op known to the profession as well as good
bogging places to trumps. Thoy are sure to
ioe "dead broke" aliout three-fourths of the
SOME OF TFIE ATTRACTIONS.
The "legitimate" as well ns the "illegiti
mate" business Is found among dime musoums
and low price shows, and there are those who
do what thoy advertise, mid work on general
business principles, although they muy not
appeal to the higher tastes and do not con
tribute to the culture which Matthew Ar
nold looked for in vain among Americans.
It ia, however, the poorw class which affect
Springfield most the sort which occupies
vacant stores on Main street, or tents on
vacant lots when the country fairs are not in
progress. A rather conflilenlinl diuio museum
man in the city not long ago was easily led to
talk about his brotherhood, and the facts
here set forth are maiuly us ho described
them. Ho had in his "exposition" a snake
charmer, an Abyssinian beauty, a bodiless
woman and a two headed calf (stuffed). The
museum was in a tnt aliout thirtv feet in
diameter, and th curios were arranged
around tho suies. Two or three elarine sheets
of canvas were stretched almut tho entrance
to depict what the show contained. To be
sure, the snakes on the illustration were
thirty feet long, while the realities were
about thirty inches, and the calf was repre
sented as specially lively, but the Abyssinian
and the bodiless woman were fairly jxirtrayed
except for an amount of physical beauty
wuicn tne originals could never have pos
sessed. The account of these attractions which the
proprietor gave was delightfully naive. The
. snake charmer, he asserted, was the daughter
of a real Indian charmer, who was brought
over by Barnum. She became enamored with
aco. cert ticket seller, and, as he had ambi
tions to start a museum, married her, and
their only child was then doing the "snake
act" on the fpostoflice lot in Springfield. The
fakir said that tho mother really had power
over snakes, but the daughter used toothless
makes and chloroform. "She is, however,"
he said, "very fond of snakes, and would
sleep with tlmm if I would let her."
The "Abyssinian beauty," iTincess Iryml,
waa described as Zi years old, a native of
New York, and descended from poor but
honest Irish pnreut. At the age of 17 she
was employed to scrub floors iu a New York
Bowery dime museum, and there learned the
secret of bleaching her huir and being ablnto
make it stand upright. She was paid $5 a
week for her services.
Tho bodiless woman was tho fakir's wife,
who had formerly lecn a character dancer la
a variety show. The man said that there had
been a time when the "bodiless woman act"
had been a whole show, and then he' had been
able to coin money. The calf, or the remains
of what had once been a calf, ho asserted,
was a legitimate curiosity which be had bid
In at an auction sole of curios for to. .50. He
said that his whole outfit cost. tVi and his
salary list was from $17 to $!i a week, with
his other expenses nlout f'40 a week, and Ids
receipts wero from $15 to $.'3 a day.
WHY THEY DON'T "LAY VP."
"Wo don't lay up nothin', though, because
when we lay off wo have to go with the boys,
and wo all buck the tiger a bit, and, of
courso, in the long ru that beats us."
He told of many hitrdhips they had
to endure, and said that they are al
ways afraid of getting stranded away
from home. Very few of the so called
freaks are what they seem, and are
"doctored" in a more or less ingenious way.
Men are all the time doing some strange
thing simply to get a job to pose for a won
der, as tl:oy are too lazy to work.
One of tho most seductive fakes is the trav
eling store, and it is safe to say that nine
times out of ten they are swindles, one way
or another, and still they are always largely
patronized. They rent the stores for a short
time, 'and so have to pay an exorbitant rent.
They oftentimes have to freight the goods
two or three times over, and are utterly Irre
sponsible. Notwithstanding these facts,
there are hundreds of people who think thev
can get better bargains there than of the
regular tnerctiants. Iu most cases, where
such is the case, tho men come by the goods
in an irregular way ; either the wares are
smuggled, are imported with an undervalue
tion or are stolen outright. The more com
mon method is to sell goods especially manu
factured for such soles, and of course made
In the very cheapest way, being for the most
part Utterly worthless. This class of goods
comprises about every article known as luxu
ries for the laboring classes. Many of the
goods are sold at auction and the venders al
ways have a plausible story to account for
thau possession of the goods. Springflold

"I see your family's home again," said one
neighbor to another, as tho two met yester
day morning. Tho family had returned; but
how did ho know it? Ho bad not seen them.
True, but be had seen tho unmistakablorigns.
The curtains at the front windows, which had
been drawn closely for weeks, were up. In
the frost uion tho pnno was a figure that only
tiny baby fingers could draw. Beneath the
fringe of frost reclined a touzle headed dolL
and a picture book rated against the aash.
In the parlor below was a vase, of fresh flowers,
and the Curtains appeared to hang more
gracefully. The front steps wero scoured and
the sidewalk was clean. Yes. the family was
home again, and no one was more happy
over it than the man who had for weeks gone

a generous constituency would forgive
my absence from my post of duty if I
could within a reasonable time
recover sufficiently for the discbarge
of my duties, but as there is
no immediate prospect of my
being able to return to my seat, and as a
relapse has destroyed my hope of doing
my duty to my people, I deem it my duty
to step aside, so as to enable them to
elect some one who is able to discharge
the duties with which they had entrusted
me. I therefore, sir, deeply reitrettins

Senator Evarts has erected an old
fashioned log cabin on an elevated point
of land which he lately purchased on the
Potomac, lust below Washington. "
It is much mora elegant in Its .finish
and appointm ants than were the homes
of our ancestor In the log cabin days of
long ago, but probably not more con
ducive to comfort
Outside, it presents the appearance of
the typical old fashioned house of the
pioneers, beinf built of logs hewn in the
adjacent forest and raised and chinked in
the olden style The interior will be fin
ished in native woods, from the place,
but, unlike the primitive original, it will
be finished in oil.
This is luxury to which the dwellers in
the rude cabins of early days dared not
aspire, it being pure luxury, and not
adding to the comfort of the domicile.
senator Evarts began the log cabin
last summer wi h the determination that,
if Gen. Harrison were elected, he would
reverse the popular campaign axiom of
half a century ago, "From the log cabin
to the White he use," to a social axiom of
the new adn inistration, ' From the
White house to the log cabin."
Harrison was successful; senator Ev
arts' new, old fashioned, log cabin will
doubtless also prove a great success.
Many a happy day's surcease from the
toils and cares of his great station, our
log cabin president will no doubt enjoy
beneath its hospitable roof as the guest
of the genial, ssnior senator from New
Great as the a lecess may be that at
tends the introduction of this old-time
log cabin to fashionable life, it cannot be
greater than the success which has at
tended the introduction of Warner's Log
Cabin Sarsaparilla, one of the old-time,
effective remedies, the use of which, in
primitive times, gave our grand parents
health and rugg d old age.
senator Evans log cabin is but an
other evidence of the tendency in fash
ionable life, at present so marked, toward
things primitive and antiquated. The
new fashion is for things old fashioned.
and to return to the old-fashioned roots
ana neros remea es oi log cabin days is
noted with pleasure, as their common
use does not pernanently injure the sys
tem, as the use o: the mineral drugs of
modern medical practice does.

and positive curative power.
" Every spring for years I have made it a
practice to take from three to five bottles of
nood's Sarsaparilla. because I knowtt purifies
the blood and thoroughly cleanses the system
of all impurities. That languid feeling, called
'spring fever w ill never visit the system that
has been properly cared for by this never
failing remedy." W. II. Lawrence, Editor
