It has occurred to me that this, letter
may be pardoned for being a triflo per
sonal. In the past eleven months I have
traveled a little over 24,000 miles, and
so, qnietly stranded here in the beauti
ful trout country, where, as noon as you
get out of hearing of one babbling brook,
you immediately get into the diocese of
another one, it seemed to me that a chap
ter made up this week of brief personals
regarding some of the well known peo
ple who during the past year or two have

I happened to be in Boston last winter
when tieorge Francis Train was liberat
ed from jail. He was sitting in a hotel
office "suffering himself to be admired."
His recent trip around the world brings
him once more to our iiotiw. At that
time he was just getting out after an
agreeahle and successful confinement in
the Boston Bastile, during which lie suc
ceeded in attracting a good deal of at
tention in one way an A another. He had
tried on being liberated to purchase a
suit of convict stripes, which he might
wear upon debntting: but Boston does
not keep an assortment of this kind of
goods; so George, who has lived in New
York for a long time, where you can run
around the corner anywhere almost and
get a suit of striped clothes, with a AVa
terbnry watch as a premium, was disap
pointed. He therefore had to bny a suit
of broad strijte seersucker, and with a
carnation in his buttonhole he broke
forth on the winter air like a lilv of the
valley in search of an open Polar sea.
He wrote a verse of poetry for me with
ml, blue and green pencils. It is not
good poetry, but it is bright and cheer
ful to lKk at. Mr. Train is never so
bright and chipper as when he is occn-
pying the public eve. But it is rather
irritating to the public eve sometimes, I
think. George would also like the eve
of the speaker most all of the time if lie
could have it. I do not think he is real
ly crazy, but at times I think that a lit
tie disinfectant wonld help his poetic

some, thoughtful man, with iron gray
hair, comes down to this building and
manages the paper. He does not try to
be funny. He knew "when he had
enough. That is James M. Bailey, who
made his mark upon the current litera
ture of his time and then qnietly re
sumed the business of publishing an
evening paper with no features to it, just
as though he 1i;m1 alwavs done so. Mr.
Bailey is an unwilling victim of the
baselall scourge, for he is one of the lo
cal lioard, I think, or something of that
kind, and owns stock in a club, while he
doesn't really know how many strikes
a side has lM-fore it is out, and still thinks
that you have got to raise a bhxxl blister
on a player with the ball when he is off
the "goor in order to get him. Mr.
Bailey claims yet that a player who is
simply disabled by the ball is not out.
He held no later than hist season, while
umpiring a game at Bridgeport, that in

The Prim of Wales in the past year
is looking more thoughtful, I think, than
formerly. When I ran in upon hiin last
summer I found him reading a long table
of statistics regarding the longevity of
stout people. He was looking a little
haggard, 1 thought, and so I tried to
chirp him up. "To be frank with you,'
said he, "I think that mother is holding
out pretty well, Bill, don't you?" I said,
"Yes, she seemed real rugged for a person
that hired all her work done." "Well,"
said he with a sigh, "it seems a little
tough, I think, for that young German
rooster to lie running a whole empire at
his age, whilst I'm liable to liecome a
grandfather soon and don't know even
what a throne fuels like. 1 think," said
he, thoughtfully, as he disengaged a
golden hair (evidently off tlie sunny
head of his chief typewriter) from the
fringe of his c;aulet, where it hud in
some way lecoiuo entangled, "that the
chief charm about a successful reign is
to know when to quit. I've seen mon
archs that meant well and did well
enough, but who held on to the throne
like a pup to a root, as you so chastely
put it in one of your letters which I was
reading to Alick at the breakfast table."
"Alickr said I. "Who the royal high

"Oh, Alick is the princess. But don't
70a think yourself, as between man and
man, tlxat iu marching, like everything
else, can be overdone?"
I said it could, and that if I could have
my way there wouldn't be any of it. "A
' nice little nincompoop can always be
found ready to rule over a nation," says
I, "and it's just as well for the people to
choose him and then change him when
they get tired of him. People like to
have even their nincompoops changed
once in a while."

William Lightfoot Visscher is a news
paper man perhaps 45 years of age, and
though I am not reminded of him, es
' pecially by the Prince of Wales, yet
Visscher id so generally known among
newspaper men from New York to Puget
sound that I venture to Bpeak of him
here as a popular candidate for prince as
noon as Russell Harrison's term expires.
Visscher is peculiarly sensitive about
his noso, and that is why I do not Bpeak
of it here. It is a bright, Italian sunset
nose, which does him a cruel injustice,
for it is not really an alcoholic bugle,
though frequently mistaken for one by
strangers. It has done him much in-
jury among temperance societies and
weakened his influence with them where
otherwise he could have done them much
good. A mining nabob of San Francisco,
for whom Visscher had done a great
favor, as he is mighty apt to do for most
anybody, once gave him a pointer by
which he was able to make several thou
sand dollars. 51 r. Visscher had -long de
sired to astonish southern California
with a meritorious drama and thorough
ly great company. So he lought a tine
team or two, and getting some nice new
scenery painted ho started due south
from San Francisco as the crow flies. In
seeking to elevate the stage of southern
California, however, tho pry seemed to
slip out and catch the enterprising ele
vator by the fingers. So, gradually be
sold one diamond stud after another,
and instead of driving them tandem he
drove them single, and finally had noth
ing left but his other team.
First he sold bis scenery.
Then his thunder ami lightiiing machinery.
And so, finallv, as autumn stole down
from her great laloratory and taint
shop and began to decorate the woods
with her lieatitif ul dyes, Mr. Visscher's
leading man secured a job in a barber
shop, his leading lady legan to wait on
the table at the Ilenn house, in southern
California: the low comedian got a job
"off lieanng" in a brick vard, and Mr.
Visscher thoughtfully felt his way back
to San Francisco as a phrenologist.
He is now rapidly becoming very
wealthy as one of the principal owners

town on the coast , where they blow out a

But I didn't intend to dwell so long on
When I first came to New York a
friend of mine who is in the furniture
business asked me if I had ever met
Bob Ingersoll. I said I had not, though
I had reiwl quite a number of his pieces
in the paper, from which I had gath
ered that he was a little bit inclined to
liberality in religions matters and quite
an iconoclast in regards to a self-supporting
I had never heard him lecture or even
seen him in my life, so I was anxious to
see liim and hear him talk. My friend
said he would take pleasure in intro
ducing me some time, for Bob would
like real well to see me also, as he had
so expressed himself.
So one day, on a street car, my friend
rose up suddenly and said, "There he is
now, and he is going to get altoard!"
Sure enough the man got on our car, and
it was but the work of a moment to in
troduce us to each other. We rode from
away up on Madison avenue to near Ca
nal street, where he got off, and we
talked freely on various matters during
that tune. I asked liim if he had seen
any reason to change or modify his re
ligious views during the 'past year or so,
and he said he certainly had not. He
was still, he hoped, a consistent Presby
terian and living up to the lest of his
lights. I inquired if he still retained his
belief as to the impracticability of main
taining a paying system of interna tioual
and eternal punishment. He said he had
never had any fears or doubts concern
ing the profitable and permanent exist
ence of such an institution, and saw no
reason for changing his belief regard
He was rather crisp and tart in his re
plies, I" thought, and so I apologized for
speaking to him so plainly, but said I
hoped I had given him no offense, as 1
had always understood that he was ex
tremely liberal regarding a hell.
'I am, said he. "Liberal is no name
for it No one can ever charge me with I
havingjbeen parsimonious in this mat
ter. I have no shadow of a don )t about
the existence of a pla--e of etenal pun
ishment, and I am that liberal regarding
it that no disbeliever has ever been
turned empty handed away from my
"And are yon still a radical and rabid
Republican, first last and all the1 time?
"No, sir. I am a Mugwump, if you
please," he said, with fine scorn. "1
dont care if all the other Mugwumps go
to Canada, or change their nainett, or turn
over their property to their wives; I
shall live and die a Mugwump, pure and
simple. I do not care for office, and I
do not care for political prefern ient, but
I can put my hand on my heart and say
truthfully that 1 have been p ilitically
pure. My record would not soil the
finest fabric. We held a mass meeting
of Mugwumps only last week in a hall
bedroom up town, and we deci led that
come what might we would cast our
ballots in the direction of reform."
Just then we got to his stret t and he
got off. ne gave me his card jis he left
us, and a few days after 1 called on him
at his place of business, just off the
Bowery, to get him to explain his conver
sation and peculiar views. I fi und that

Ten years ago a thirty -too engine was

they arc turned into coal cars or gravel
