A remarkably nervy and ingenious swin

One of the rlrst of Allison's metropolitan
exploits was on the occasion of a grand din
ner given at Uelmontoo's a few years ago.
Allison was strolling up Broadway. He was
hnngry; he was penniless. He hail heard
about the prospective repast. A brilliant
iden struck him.
Without a moment's hesitation he entered
Delmonico s. Taking a pad from his pocket.
he ad.lressed a pompous looking gentleman
wita tne remark: "Uez pardon, sir. but could
yoa tell me the names of some of the most
prominent gentlemen present, and your own.
too, if you please? Our artist will be here
later in the evening, and will probably make
a sketch of you for Harper's Weekly." Of
course the pompous citizen was delighted,
and immediately took the ingenious beat
under his wing and gave him all the informa
tion he could. hen dinner was announced.
Allison sailed into the dining room on the
arm of his friond, and proceeded to eat every
thing he could lay his hands on. He had a
glorious time, drank the health of his pom
pons friend and others, and became in
toxicated. Ho was fired from the scene, but
he hail his meal. Allison was married to the
daughter of Brockway, the forger. Allison
ana ins wire once rented a furnished flat in
New York, and although he had little money
m.itiage.i to get alonjr comfortablv. Mrs.
Allison thought her husband's actions very
peculiar, and on one occasion was led to
say: "Mr. Allison does such funny things.
tins morning there was nothing in the
house for breakfast, and he had no tnonev in
his pocket, but that didn't make any differ
ence, tie took tne clock off the mantelpiece,
did it up in a piece of paper and went out
with it. He came back with a half dozen
eggs, rolls, coftve, milk and a pint bottle of
whisky. He told me he had taken the clock
to get it mended."
He was finally turned out of the flat, but
there was very little left of any value. After
leaving the flat Allison's wife left him, and
he has been alone ever since. For a while he
bad a room tu the Lafayette place baths, and
greatly enjoyed the Russian and Turkish
liaihs as a recuperative after inebriety. Ha

The Courier of London. He devoted thA
whole paper to puffs of saloons, restaurants.
theatres, tailors and other like places, with
each of which he speedily opened a line of
credit. London becoming a little too hot for
him, he returned to America and regaled his
friends with accounts of his adventures.
"Oh, yes," he remarked, 'I met the Prince
of Wales at the Savage club."
"Well, what did he say to you, and you to
"Oh, he didn't say anything very particu
lar except, 'How are you, old man; I'm glad
to meet you,' and I replied iu my smooth,
elegant way, "I hope your grace is woU.' "
After his return from Europe he joined
the Tress club, and added the name of that
institution to his beautifully engraved card.
With the aid of this he succeeded in getting
into theaters and other places of amusement,
and "hanging up" bartenders, barbers, hat
ters and other credulous peoplo. Allison was
the prince of petty thievery, and his disap
pearance is deeply felt in the metropolis.
How to Osculate IroperIy.
If you are tall and she is short, you must
stand erect, draw her close to your side, bend
your head somewhat so that your lips will
rest respectfully on her forehead, place her
right hand over her shoulder, then your loft
arm around her waist. By this time her left
hand will be snugly imprisoned in your right
hand. She will raise her face to look np at
you. Draw your arm for a moment from
around her waist and gently tip her head
backward and to the side, then well, that is
The other is, if she is tall and you are short,
stand on your toes, not on her toes, mind.
Draw her head down nicely until her lips are
on a lovel with her forehead. By that time
your lips will be on a level with her diamond
collar button. You will look up to ber, of
course. Your eyes, from their proximity to
her lips, will read what she is about to say.
If their motion bodes any good, then it is
safe for you to make the exertion. If they
bode evil, why, a la Aunt Bridget, "stay
where you are, stay where you are." .
