SHE TALKS WITH NYE
A CHAMBERMAID DWELLS FEELING
LY ON LIFE IN CONEY ISLAND.
Her Lifa aa Viewed from the Standpoint
of One of the 40 An Experience at
the Theatre The Censoa and Nye'
Lint of Question.
Copyright by Edgar W. Nye.
At the Hotel, Room 13. She has
just gone. I was about beginning this
letter in my room when some one tried
the door by throwing his whole being
against it, then rattling the knob and
afterward inserting a pass key. For
some time my own key on the inside of
the lock prevented the other from enter
ing, bnt finally it tottered and fell to the
floor. Then the bolt moved and the door
opened. A tall girl, with a porous jersey
and a hoarse footfall, entered the room. .
"I DO NOT LOVE MY CALLING.
My richly caparisoned robe de nuU lay
across the foot of the bed. She caught
it firmly by the sleeve and flung it into
the wardrobe. I said: "Bon jour, Mme,
CSelle." She did not reply.
Catching a pillow by the corner Bhe
shucked it dexterously on the floor.
Then she nimbly yanked the case off the
other, and afterward skinned off the
sheets. When I would resume my writ
ing she would pause in her duties and
look at me furtively. When I looked ujv
again she would resume her havoc.
She was rather plain; not the kind of
plainness that often goes along with
great mental power, but the kind that
you might expect in a hippopotamus that
had no early advantages except a hare
lip. She seemed to think it odd that I
should be in my room writing at that
hour of the day while there was a base
ball game going on. She did not under
stand that I was a litterateur.
Finally I could bear the restraint no
longer; so, politely raising my hat, which
had been on the bureau all this time, I
"Do I address the chambermaid':
"Yon do," she said shyly, as Bhe threw
the mattress across the footboard, knock
ing the prehistoric toot out of it in a
"Would you mind telling me whether
jrou are perfectly happy? I exclaimed,
f "Oh, no, I am not happy a little bit,'
"And do you not love your calling?"
"No, I do not love my calling. Why
should I love my calling? I love to
mingle with the glad throng. I wits
born on Coney Island, where it was oiie
round of pleasure all the live long sum
mer day. My father was an artist. He
had an atelier on the beach, where he
took tin types 'in a group.' Like all
artists he was improvident. His tastes
were far in advance of his income. Bat
be lovefl my mother truly, and when not
working at bis art he would often turn
the wringer for her."
"And you were happy then?"
"Ah, yes. So happy! so happy!
partook of my father's artistic tastes, but
physically I resemble my mother. She
cared nothing for art, but could catch a
barrel of pork by the chimes and throw
it into a wagon all by her lone self."
"And what makes you unhappy now?"
"The hungry waves ate into the beach
e'en as the rhubarb pie is eat into by the
laughing boy. The red flag of the auc
tioneer arose on the Du John tower of the
big hotel. The kodak knocked the talents
oat of my pale, artist father and he took
to drink. Ram entered his month and
foolishly stole away his brains, return
ing them with thanks, however, ou the
"And this business is not congenial to
"No, it is not. I pant for the smell of
the salt sea. In me dreams I hear the
glad voices of Coney Island and recall
those happy times when the beautiful
South Beach on Staten Island had not
robbed us of our bread and drawn away
the merry throng. I also loved a fragile
young street car driver on the Broadway
line. He was a lala. He was an ex
cellent horseman, and with the. reins in
bis strong hands he did not fear the most
fiery steed. I do not think he knew
what fear was. I've seen a team cat np
real mean with Hiram, bnt he never
blanched. But one day as he was going
home from Coney Island, whither he had
went to breathe a few vows into my ear,
a policeman that weighed over 200
pounds, and who had not clubbed any
one for so long that the other police
chaffed him and poked fun at him, de
coyed Hiram into an alley and beat out
quite a large quantity of his brains, from
the loss of which he never fully recov
ered." "What did you do then?" ,
"I had to go out to service, as they say
in the English books. I spent one sum
mer, however, at Heidellerg, training
my voicb for chamberwork. Then I
went to Milan, where I learned how to
make np a bed with accordeon pleating
across the top. I also learned how to
give a bed an air of plumpness even
when in a state of collapse. Now I can
get a job any time. Yesterday I was
offered a job in a new play in New York.
Ton know that all good plays have a
chambermaid in the first act that comes
in and claims to dust the furniture, and
also wonders where the butler is. She
generally wears a aolitairy alum ring,
and don't know how to dust a chair no
more than perdition could refrain from
scorching a feather. So I can take that
place and also throw oat the villain at
the clone of the act, for I inherited me
mother's gift of strength together with
me father's love of art
"And so you would leave this profes
sion which yon now adorn?"
'Yes, I am tired of waiting on my in
feriors and making np beds for disagree
able people, in whom I take no interest,
to moss again." -
She then gathered np her traps and
started for the door, bat before she did
so she told me in a few well chosen
words, taken from the beet Fireside Story
paper, mingled with Coney Island idioms,
how she yearned to be shet of the thrall
dom of hotel life and to once more be
free. I think she will go on the stage.
I would not be surprised if , as a result
of it. the stage takes to its wings ana flies.
At the hotel table yesterday I saw a
face that I bad seen before, but 1 could
not remember where. I have now
reached that age where I prevaricateln
that direction some, for I cannot remem
ber names any more, and so when this
gentleman bowed I did so, and w talked
on pleasantly. He asked me all about
Buffalo Bill and Herbert Spencer and
Steve Brodie and President Carnot and
Marshall Wilder and Neil Vanderbilt
and all of our folks, so I knew that he
moved in our set Then he asked me to
excte him, but there looked to him to
be a foreign substance in among the
leaves of my salad. I pawed over the
lettuce and discovered in it a new dollar
bilL I thanked the gentleman for his
kindness, and said I was getting so ab
sent minded now that I was liable to go
away some time and leave a whole fort
une in the hotel sugar bowl, ne said he
was that way too.
"Now, for instance, I left something or
other over there in that finger bowl, 1
believe. Will you be kind enough to look
in it and see." I examined the finger
bowl and found his diamond ring in the
bottom of it. When I got through my
meal I decided to go and see some sort
of show. 1 went to see Herrmann. When
he came on the stage I remembered who
it was that ate dinner with me.
The performance did not run Very
smoothly, owing to the orchestra, which
was a local affair. In one place the per
former is quite dependent on the orches
tra for his cue, as the whole thing moves
along with the Music. It is a part of the
programme called Black Art, wherein
various skeletons come out of their damp,
ill ventilated graves at a late hour of the
night and dance the hornpipe or remove
their skulls and blow the dust out of
them, keeping time to the music all the
while. Herrmann had endea v red to im
press upon him that the inemTiers of the
orchestra must pay strict attention to
their business, for he depended, on the
When it got to this part of the pro
gramme the magician discovered that
the leader had loaded bis etruscan jaw
with a giant jag of tatti frntti gum and
was keenly enjoying the show. Herr
mann motioned him to go on with the
music, and he spread out his wings as a
signal for the orchestra to sail in. As one
ghastly gentleman after another got out
of his malarial grave and shook ont the
kinks in his skeleton, the orchestra be
gan to play more and more piano. The
man who administers the clarionet to
himself every evening swallowed the
first joint of hi3 instrument, and then
seemed to freeze with horror at the pict
ure on the stage- All at once a slim little
ghost crawled out of his grave, and tak
ing out a carpet tack which had been in
the bottom . of his coffin no doubt for
years and jabbing him in the back, he
seemed to breathe a sigh of relief, and
turning a band spring lit on the top of a
tall monument worth f250.
Then the man who plays the adjust
able brass pulled the instrument out to
its fullest extent and forgot to put it
back again. More and more the or
chestra seemed to get interested in the
show and less in its mnsie. The drum
mer made a fox pads, as the French say,
and then pansed with an niiboni note
still trembling on his lips. Finally as the
ghastly turnfest went on, the orchestra
got so diminuendo that an old blind
man, with a cronpy base tulia, was the
only musician who seenied to le earning
Then Professor Herrmann came ont on
the stage an! made a few desultory re
marks to the orchestra personally. He
began to remove gum from the jaws of
the orchestra, and some said he got eight
pounds, but I think that is pntting it too
high. Between six and seven would, I
think, be big enough. At this moment
the drummer sought to reply. A little
discussion arose between him and the
professor, and when it closed the drum
mer was not there. The next day, I am
told, he was found inside the base drum.
FOUND IN TOE SUGAR BOWL.
Wherever I have gone, so far, there
uems to be much excitement over the
census and its long list of rude and vul
gar questions. I did not think that the
new interrogations would be answered
by enough peoplo to make what answers
are given of any value whatever. I hope
that every one who has any respect for
himself remained silent on every ques
tion which referred to his own business
and is nobody's else business. It will
teach the lank head statistician that in a
government of the people, by thu iieople
and for the people, capital punishment.
Or even corporal punishment, for failure
to gratify the morbid curiosity of a
"mean average" polyp does not obtain.
Of course the list of questions has
Brought forsh other lists of interroga
tories which are not official or authentic.
The following lies before me as I write:
"1. State your age at nearest birthday.
"2. Married or single. If so, have yon
other husbands or -wives living, and if
so, do yon envy them their happiness?
"3. Do you come up nights or do yon
have to be sent for?
"4. Are you male or female. If so,
what are your reasons for this course?
"5. If male, do you attribute it to
heredity or to our republican form of
"0. What is your salary?
"7. Do yon draw it all at the end of
the week or give orders on the cashier
before pay day?
"8. Do you keep a milch cow? If so,
has she ever been a mother?
"9. Are your parents living, and if so,
are they self supporting?
"10. Do yoa make your ovm aoap or
buy it at the store?
"11. Did yon consider your parents
daring their lifetime as respectable peo
"12. If you produce your own soap,
would you mind giving the recipe?
"13. Have you any good chewing to
bacco with you?
"14. Have you any hereditary disease
which you would liko to mention to the
American people through the census bu
"15. Are yon a believer in a burning
hell with a good draught to it, and if so,
whom would you like to meet there be
side the f ramers of these interrogatories?"
Time is money.
SOME INTERESTING HISTORY.
The Stte of the Hear Watt r Power
and Other Property Sear Bock Rlv
er, and DlstlBKBlfthed M en Who
Have Bees latere ate4 ! It.
Within a few days at the outs de an im
portant change in the owners! ip of the
well known Sears water power plant at
Rock river is likely to occur. As has
been heretofore stated it the A nous, the
Holmes syndicate -has been, negotiating
for all or a portion of it and ill indica
tions are that it will come into iwssestfon
of the plant or enough of the power to
operate its street railway lin;s in the
three cities. Guyer & 8weenej have just
completed for the Messrs. Sears an ab
stract of title of the property, and it is
about as interesting from a historical
standpoint as anything that can be found
in the annals of this westers country.
The tract, comprising about 00 acres,
was laid out by Davenport & Parnarn in
1820. on the eiteof what was then known
HB the Sac and Fox village. In 1836 Levi
C. Turner bought a portion of ii and laid
out on its site (he first Rock Inland city
and platted the town so described in most
of the after conveyances. In 1837 Mr
turner sold an eighth interest in the
property to the famous Daniel Webster
for $60,000. who in turn in If 49 IranB
ferred the same to Caleb Cushinj; for $20,-
Finally a partition soil was commenced
and a portion of the property was set
off to Chas. A. Spring and t.nolher to
Pamuel Blackwell, the town s te having
been vacated. Tjie two sites were bought
by the late D. B. Sears in 1816. and in
18C9 the town of Sears was plaited. The
canal and water power were established
by legislative acts in 1849.
An- interesting feature of the his
tory of the power is that a Chi
cago banker named Hubbarc. agreed
to furnish the money to Turner to
buy the laud, and when it was demand'
he furnished but $18,000, for which he
took the deed and never afterward ac
counted for it. A suit in chancery fol
lowed, and while Turner got a decree be
never recovered anything furtht r. There
are 148 conveyances in the abstract, which
is naturally very complicated, and has
required a great deal of pains and time
in preparing it. '
