A Tinker's Story.
Peter Daly, a wandering tinker, sat
mending an old wash boiler in front of a
tenement house on Forty-eighth street
near Eleventh avenue, singing merrily
away aa he filled up the holes with solder.
Peter was in a talkative mood, and a
few minutes' conversation disclosed the
fact that the tinker has a history.
He served ten years in the British army,
and has seen some hard service under the
hot sun of India. His father was a tinker
before him in county Antrim, Ireland,
where Pete was born, and ho learned to
use the soldering iron almost as soon as he
learned to walk.
From the British army Peter went to
Australia, and from there he wandered
over half Europe, carrying his little fur
nace and kit of tools, and working his way
a-s he went. He can shout "Boilers to
mend" in a half dozen different lauguages,
and Mpenks German as well as any good
ftubjert of the kntxer. But he says there is
a reason for that. In a little town in Ger
many ho received a wound from a bright
pair of blue eyes that was worse than any
he had received in the army, "and which,"
Peter says, "will never get well." But he
doesn't care much nlwut that part of it,
for the little German maiden consented to
go with him and take care of the wound.
So Pete took her along as his wife, and
says she is doing her best to keep the
His wanderings are done now, however,
and every night he goes home to the flat
where he lives on the west side, where the
smiling face of his Gretchen and their
three sturdy rogues of children are await
ing his return. Still Pete likes to talk
aliout the old times, when he was a "sojer
bye," and many an hour does he while
nway telling the neighbors of his advent

Speoiincna of Itnre Handwritings.
Mr. Simon Gratz, who is deemed an ex
pert in the matter of autographs, has next
to the finest collection in America. Mr.
Gratz commenced gathering autograph let
ters in VsM. He was then but a stripling
of 17 years, yet at this early age he was im
bued with the idea while accidentally
searching mong a number of old family
papers. He possesses a complete set of the'
"signers," fifty t woof which areautograph
letters signed. He also has a second set
under way, which is complete with the ex
ception of the rare signature of Thomas
Lynch, Jr. But one original letter of
I.ynch's is known to exist today, and it is
owned by the eminent New York physi
cian, Dr. Thomas Emmet.
Ilr. Emmet estimates the cost of this let
ter to him at $7tnl. The majority of Mr.
Gratz's autograph letters are remarkably
fine, both as regards their condition and
text. He owns a set of autographsof the
members of the old congress, which, if not
complete, are very full, aud a complete set
of autograph let ters of the generals of t he
revolution, the majority of which are auto
graph letters signed. Besides these Mr.
Grata possesses a general collection of au
tographs embracing between 25,000 and
30,000 specimens, not only American but
foreign, ancient and modern. Philadel
I'lnrlria'a Cabbage Tree.
One of the most peculiar trees in Florida
is the cabbage tree. It is one of the most
valuable of Florida's products. Just why
it should lie called cabbage I do not know,
unless it is that the long, straight trunk,
surmounted by a cluster of leaves, resem
bles somewhat a seedling cabbage plant.
The t ree, in fact, belongs to the palmetto
family. It grows to a height varying
from twenty to forty feet, and there is
scarcely an inch difference in the diameter
from the roots up to the leaves.
The leaves, or bayonets, all grow in a
cluster at. the top. The wood is very porous
and extremely light; it resembles cork
more than wood. Its value lies in the fact
that it. is utterly impervious to the ravages
of salt water and barnacles, which quickly
destroy all other natural woods. Hence
the cabbage t ree is much sought after for
posts ninl piles for building bridges and
wharves in salt water. Pine piles that are
used in building through salt water have
to lie creosoted in onler to preserve them
any length of time, and the process is a
very expensive one, but the cabbage wood
needs no application of any sort. The
Florida supply is fast becoming exhausted,
and there will soon be but little of it left.

On a Certain Critical Fallacy.
The truth is that the current criticism
whose shibboleths are "romanticism" and
"realism" has got into the polemic stage
which is the same thing as saying that it
has ceased to be criticism." Criticism is
mainly an affair of analysis and classiflca
t ion. These afford it ample scope, and
dealing successfully with them confers
abundant dignity. To decry Scott or ex
alt Mr. Rider Haggard is to lie the slave of
an abstraction, than which nothing is less
critical. It may be useful by way of
shocking the illiterate and inattentive into
a comprehension of your position, but it is
not criticism, because your eye is not "on
the object," but on your position, which
also in this case is hopelessly outside the
circle of operations of true contemporary
The "realist ic" controversialists are es
pecially slow to perceive this. Not only
are they singularly blind to the success of
their own party among the novelists whose
material is exclusively human life and
character (how else explain their heat?),
but t hey seem to insist that every one who
deals with fiction at all should deal exclu
sively with this material. Scribner's.
The imKrtance of flameless combustion
is not sufficiently recognized. The appear
ance of (lame is misleading, and the greater
the flame the less work done, other things
lieing equal. The fact that certain lioilers
give such an exceedingly small duty for
the fuel consumed when the flues are filled
from end to end with "magnificent flame"
is often a puzzle- to engineers. This so
called magtulicent flame is a delusion, hol
low and cold inside, and not coming iu
contact with the Imilcr at all." When the
same fuel is burned with a very small
flame, hardly visible over the bridge, the
duty increases some 30 percent. New York
An Indian's Idirial riace.
The Cheyenne Indian hangs the dead
liody of his friend among the foliage of his
native loi-enta, a prey to the vulture and

it with willow branches, places it with the
feet southward in some Cottonwood tree,
together wit h a plentiful supply of food,
arms and toliaeco, to lie consumed on its
voyage to the happy hunting grounds.

The new sash craze for men may possi
bly cause a pane in the stomach.
The American people suffer
more from kidney troubles than
any other nation in the world.
Part of this is owing to the fact
that they are large consumers
of ice-water, especially in the
summer. The effect upon the
stomach and kidneys of sud
denly chilling the small blood
vessels is precisely the 6ame
effect as one experiences in tak
ing cold. The blood - vessels

and the process kept up in no

Bright's Disease of the Kidneys.
He has simply done by neglect
what he would have accomplish
ed if he had taken cold upon
the lungs and neglected ir, he
has the consumption. At the
nrst appearance ot a trouble of
this sort the patient should take
Reid's German Cough and Kid
ney Core according to directions.
This stimulates the system, and
induces permanent cure. The
danger in these cases arises
from neglect in "letting them
run." Every cold tends to
weaken the vital organs. If
the system is not strengthened
and ctlmulated, every cold lays
the foundatiou for more serious
difficulty in the futnre. Persons
whose stomach and digestive
organs have been deranged by
the excessive use of iced drinks
will find Reid's German Cough
and Kidney Cure a wonderful
tonic. It acts at once and as
tberrt are no poisonous drugs in
it neither opium, morphiue or
