I sell flowers every afternoon and evening

a lady on Market trtrwt, who hires me and
another girl t do this work. She pays us 5
cents for every ''ollar's worth we sell. Every
day she looks about for flowers that can be
bought cheap and sends us to get them. We
often go out into the suburbs for our day's
supply. e make these into bouquets and
start out on our round. I've got regular
places to go to uow ana regular customers.
I visit hotxls, thoatruM and sometimes go to
a bar well, wherever I una men collected
together. I sell buttonhole bouquets for
cents or 10 cent.-, but mcu often give me a
quarter or SO cents. This is extra money, for
all that 1 sell above the price of the flowers
I take out belongs to me. I frequently take
in f 4 or $o in oue niht. I stay out until
sell my flowers, ur until the chauce of selling
them has gone. 1 sometimes sell out as early
as 9 o'clock, and opain I have not gone home
until after mi.lmght. Oh, I m not afraid.

decline nine out of every ten of the invita

comrades at one place and another, with
which his mails are burdened. He is pres
ident of the Society of the Army of the Ten

timated that he feels unable any longer to
fulfill the duties attached to the position or
to travel any considerable distance to par

The Last Chance to See Him.
This aci-eptanoe of the invitation from the
Cream City is in fact a surprise to his
friends, and it is accepted as an evidence of
his earnest desire to mingle ouce more with
bis old comrades, the boys in blue, before old
asre and I be infirmities attached thereto
makes it impossible for him to occupy a oor-
ner at the big camp-fire. There will be
something pathetic therefore in his presence

right royal greeting that will be accorded him
by the tens of thousands of his former men
of arms will take on the character of a fare

THE BOYS ARE MARCHING.
Milwaukee Kxnerts to Hold the Cham
Milwaukee, Wis., Aug. 6. Delegations
arrived from Indiana and Michigan yesterdty
to make preparations for caring for large
numbers of men who will come from those
states. They say that not less than 4.000
soldiers will come from Michigan and 3,000
from Indiana. The imprewion prevails, and
is based upon facta received the past few
days, that there is no longer any doubt that
the coming encampment and reunion will be
by far the largest that has ever assembled.
The Corporal Is Coming.
One member of the executive council has
received ten letters, seven from Iowa and
three from Nebraska, the past twenty -fcur
hours, informing him that they had aban
doned the idea of coming until they learned
that Corporal Tanner, the commissioner of
pensions, was coming, and tbey took pains to
say that tbey were not coming because they
wanted him to do pension work at the en
campment, but because tbey want to see the
man who tbey think is proving himself one
of the very best friends the soldiers ever had.
Corporal Tanner will have headquarters at
the Flankington bouse.

The greatest of our living solJiers, Oen.

ernor J. B. Foraker, of Ohio, will be here

How They Farm in Bohemia.
Washington City, Ang. 7. Charles
Jonas, United Stab's consul at Prague, has
sent the state department a report of Bo
hemian agriculture and its results in 1889.
The soil of New England, he says, has been
under culture for about two centuries, and
is now hardly paying for its cultivation,
while Bohemia was settled by an agricul
tural race of people in the fifth c-ntury of
the Christian era. The present population
upon an ara not quite one-half rs great as
that of the state of Ohio is nearly 6,(IU0,0U0;
yet Bohemian agriculture to-day stands
equal to sny in Europe excepting perhaps
the English. This result is obtained by
manuring with bone-dust, etc, rotation of
crops, changes of seeds and deep plowing.

Cairo, Aug. 7. The startling news comes
from Toeki, tha scene of Saturday's overthrow
of the Dervish hordes, that documents have
been found in the abandoned camp of Wad-
el-N'jumiand upon the dead bodies of hii
sbiekhs which prove the existence of a wide
spread conspiracy, with its center among
high officials of the Egyptian army and
prominent Egyptian leaders in Cairo itself.
The invasiou by Wad-el-N jumi, with bit
handful of Dervishes, is shown by these
documents to have been an incident of thil
conspiracy, which was to have been followed
by wholesale treason on the part of the
What the Itlsrloaurea I-.zplnln.
These disclosures serve to explain, what
has up to this time puzzled everybody here,
how the leader of the Dervishes expeetea U

force he brought with biin across the desert
It is now clear that he expected to lie joined
at the Nile by deserters from the Egyptian
armv itself, headed by the traitors with
whom he had been in correspondence and by
some of the tribes upon whose friendship
Egypt had counted.
Wodehouse Too Vigorous for Them.
Just wbr the traitors at the last moment
abandoned the brave Dervish leader to his
fate, aud how it came that their treachery
was not consummated is not yet clear. It is
quite likely, however, that their plans were
to throw off their masks and j.iin Wad-el-
N' jumis invaders after they had crossed the
Nile, and that CoL odehouse s determina
tion to prevent their reaching the rivr at
all hazards and bis unexpected success iu
carrying out this purpose threw the con
spirators into confusion and disorganized
their carefully laid plans.
AT WAR IN CRETE.
Christians and Moslems Save a Battle-
Greece Stakes a Demand.
Athens, Aug. 7. The Greek government
has ordered the naval forces to hojd them
selves in readiness for action. Hundreds of
Cretan refugees have arrived in Athens, and
the government has granted 40,00) out of
the national treasury for their relief. The
Turks are arming the Moslems throughout
the islamL A fight occurred yesterday at
Heradion between armed bodies of Moslems
and Christians, in which ten were killed on
each side and many wounded. The Turkish
troops were within easy reach of tha fight,
but remained neutral.
The government of Greece has sent a de
mand to the powers that tbey shall restore
order in Crate, and has notified them that in
the event of their failure so to do Greece
must take prompt action to protect her own
subjects on the island against the Turks.
The Retiring Sea DiOlcnlty.
London, Aug. 7. The seizure of the Black
Diamond has again directed public attention
to the questions at issue between England
and the United States on the subject of the
seal fisheries in liehring Sea, and the nei
papers commeut very freely upon what most
of them agree in describing as "the latest
outrage." The St. James Gazette' very em
phatically condemns the seizure, and believes
that the English speaking people on both
sides of the Atlantic are tired of the dodges
of political tricksters, resorted to to further
their own selfish purposes, such as the dis
missal of the British minister at Washing
ton and the present "gratuitous outrage."
The Gazette trusts that Sir Julian Puunce-
fote's presence at the time in London will
hasten a settlement of the vexed questions
involved in the Black Diamond seizure.
