THE SANDWICH MAN.
Cpa nnd Downs of m Supernumerary Who
Baa Been with Mapleaon.
Among the curious incidents in Col Maple
son's "Memoirs" is the story of an officer in
the B -itish army, who told the substance of
bis downgrade career in social position: "I
was tirnierly," be said, "a captain in the
regiment, and many a time have I paid my
six guineas for a box at your opera, both in
Edint urgh and in London. Subsequently I
began to take a great interest in the turf, and
soon met with heavy losws, which compelled
me to give various promissory notes. This
at lasi. came to the knowledge of my colonel,
who recommended me to leave the regiment
without delay. Having nothing to live upon,
and b-ring a fair performer on the cornet-a-plston,
1 joined a traveling circus, and ulti
mate! f came across your opera company in
Philadelphia, where I was one of your stage
band. Iter on I Joined a party who were
bound for the diamond fields in South Africa,
where I was most unsuccessful, and I had to
work my passage home in a sailing ship, till I
got to London, where I became a supernu
merary under your management at Drury
Lane. During your third season an aunt of
mine died, and I found myself the possessor
of 1( ,0(10. "
"My cousin, who was largely interested in
buildi ig operations, which he assured me
paid him at least 60 per cent., induced me to
place half my fortune in his speculations.
His he uses were in the west part of London,
which had been considerably overbuilt; and,
being mortgaged, they would have been lost
but for my paying away the remainder of
my fo -tune with the view of Raving them. In
spite f this the mortgage foreclosed and I
again became a supernumerary, when, in the
mimic fight in the second act of 'Trovatore,'
one of my companions by mere accident with
the point of a spear put my eye out. I was
now n longer qualified for engagement even
as a s ipernumerary, and 1 became a 'sand
wich' man. My duties during the last four
and a balf years have been to parade Bond
street and Regent street, receiving as pay
ment i line pence a day."
On my handing the poor man his salary
and settling up, he at first declined to take
the money, saying that I had done him so
many kindnesses at different periods of his
life that now, when I was in trouble myself,
he could not think of tuking his week's pay.
I, however, not only insisted upon bis accept
ing it, but gave him a sovereign for himself.
The unfortunate gentleman, as he showed
himself to the last, went away blessing me.

Rather Embarrassing to the Girl.
A yc ung woman brought a ring to a Jew
eler th a other day and requested him to reset
the st me, which she said was loose. She
spoke of it as a diamond solitaire. The jew
eler fck the ring and said he would attend
to it As the customer was leaving the store
the jeveler called her back and said: "This
stone -s glass, ma'am I want you to under
The young woman colored up and exclaim
ed with wrath in her voice: "It's no such
thing- it's a real diamond G lass, indeed !M
"Excuse me, ma'am," politely rejoined the
Jeweler, "it is nothing more than a piece of
commc n crystal or glass. There is no doubt
whatever about it."
"But it wosa present given to me last Christ
mas by a very dear friend who wouldn't
think it giving me a sham diamond," the
young woman persisted.
"I'm sorry, ma'am," replied the Jeweler,
"somelody's been deceived very likely, but
this stone is absolutely worthless; a chip of
Well the young woman argued still fur
ther at out the ring and insisted it was very
valuab e, and at lust took it away with her,
saying that she would take it somewhere else
to be rt paired. She was nearly in tears when
she left the store.
After she had gone the jeweler said to me:
"I did not want to hurt that girl's feelings,
but wl en a ring of that kind is given to me
to be rt paired I always make it a practice of
baviug it clearly understood that the stone is
valueles. If I did not I should rim the risk
of baviig that young woman come back after
she had discovered that the stone was not a
diamond, and accuse me of changing it in the
resetting. Such a charge was one made
against me under circumstances of this kind,
and Bin then I have followed a cautious
policy for my own protection. That girl was
honest, I've no doubt, but 1 cannot afford to
take any chances. " Pittsburg Disjmtch.

IT REMOVED THE PIMPLES.
Round Mountain. Tex.,March 29, '87.
A lady friend of mine has for several
years been troubled with bumps and
pimples on her face and neck, for which
she used various cosmetics in order to
remove them and beautify and improve
her complexion, but these local applica
tions were only temporary and left her
skin in a worse condition.
I recommended an internal preparation
known as Botanic Balm which I have
been using and selling about two years;
she used three bottles and nearly all
pirn pits have disappeared, her skin is
soft and smooth and her general health
much improved. She expresses herself
much gratified, and can recommend it to
all who are thus affected.
