Twenty-third street, one floor above the
entrance, (juitu a number of people are
busy there all tho time adding new fig
ures and tableaux to the gnut collection
in the siells iwlow. Every time a mon

ed the genius of the wax sculptor up
there is called iutu use, and before you
know it the head of the new republic, lu
a neat fitting suit of clothes, is inserting
his nice pink hand into the bosom of his
frock cout and trying to look fur away,
while ieople are watching him earnestly
lu the great group of potentates.
I was first introduced to the main wax
worker and artist of the whole estab
lishment, whose name I wish I had se
cured, because he was so courteous and
obliging. He showed me all about it.
so that 1 could now do it myself if at
any time I should decide to retire from
literary pursuits and give myself up en
tirely to art.
The artist of whom I speak makes
heads and hands and finishes np the job,
while another artist, whose name I did
not get accnnitely enough to print, on
leas I could at once escape, makes the
bodies. The process is very simple in
J , ...
aeeu. iwiymxiy couiu uo 1C it is as
easy as running a paper or perfecting
the tana so as to be generally airrceable.
The sculptors were working on a group
or Christopher Columbus. The artist has
ei2ed tijion the happy moment when
Columbus is just about to discover Amer
ica, and he is debating in his own mind
whether or not there is anj-thing in it.
One can see readily by his deep, earnest
look thut it is a problt-in in Lis brain
which he hiis not yet settled whether
it will iiy him to discover a country
which will introduce the use of plug to
bacco ana freedom.
Columbus was at this time verv poor.
First he had sought to secure a conces
sion from the legislature of Spain, but
in bpain it costs as much to gut a just
appropriation as it does in Alhanv. He
went on to show that if ho did not dis
cover America some one else would, and
that the result would be that some less
deserving and far plainer man would
get his pictures on the American green
backs. Hut pooh! pooh! said the legisla
ture, seeing that Columbus had no
xneana with which to promote legisla
tive action, and he being a plain man.
entirely ignorant of whether a bill had
to go to its final passage or over to the
Smithsom.in Institution, was gnyed and
fooled with by men who should have
known better until his money was cone.
and our )est Indian tribes were waiting
impatiently all the time to be discov
ered. "Alafl!" some great chief would say
after vainly searching the horizon, "au-
other day has went by and my people
remain undiscovered. My great speech
to the pale face, which I have prepared
for the Fourth Reader, is still in manu
script form. Day after day goes by and
we get no reliable European news. Bahf
1 He wonld then oat a light breakfast of
maixe, get married, and taking his cross
gun on his shoulder go out and shoot a
canvatdiack muskrat for his luncheon.
Columbus, as he will appear at the Eden
ilusee, has a dark but pleasant face and
pleasant whiskers. I took his head in my
hand and looked into his steady, gentle
eyes. Also Into his vacant head.
The head and face of the figures are
made first in clay, as a sculptor would
do it. It is fun. 1 made one. It was
pleasing, but the man it resembled I had
never met. xle was a stranger to me.
"When the clay is sufficiently hard to use
for that purpose a plaster mold is made
wan It, in sections, of course, so that it
may be easily removed: then the melted
flesh colored wax is poured in uutil it has
attained a thickness of from an eighth
to a quarter of an inch, and then it is
allowed to harden. After sufficient time
for this the bust is removed and num
bered and catalogued, so that it may be
again cuiou into use years hence if any
thing Bhonld occur to bring np this fig-
nro to the public notice. The World's
fair now, of course, at ouce attracts at
tention t) Columbus and his group of
rocky pie bit-rs from Spain. Here we
see them in all their wanton wildness
and freedom. Columbus had not (rot his
clothes on yut when I saw him. He has
good furore, though, and a nice pink
torso. IU was m years of ago at the
time he had this torso taken, I believe.
The bodies of the entire Columbus
group had been made, and with cheap
ribbed underwear on them they stood in
a little convention at one end of the
room. Koine were kneeling, some were
standing and some wew in other atti
tudes that would have looked heroic if
the drapery had been a little more exten
sive. The bodies and limbs are made as
follows: First they are modeled in clay
in the position exactly that they are to
MBmne when completed. Then the
mold is made from this and then the
wax is put in first, followed by a heavy
coarse cloth, three thicknesses of which
are used to give strength and firmness
of character to the subject.
A lady was engaged in dressing the
figure of Columbus. Bho attends to the
costuming of all the wax people. She
was Just putting a wad pf excelsior Into
bis bosom as I entered. Another young
lady has the somewhat monotonous job
of putting on the hair and whiskers, one
at a time. Many think that the wax
works wear wigs, but this is not true.
Each hair is put into the wax by means
of a little steel jabber, and the wax
pressed down again to hold it It takes
three days to put the hair on a man like
Liszt or Ole BnlL- In getting up a figure
of CoL Ingersoll of coarse one-day would
be ample. In the Columbus group there
is one sailor who has sot shaved for a
week. This is effected by nutting the
beard in full, and then clipping it to the
proper length. He looks quite lifelike,
and has irregular teeth which, with his
sandy, stubby beard, give him a regular
sea dog look.
Ferdinand will be represented also. I
saw his bust in beeswax. He was rather
a plain man with a ' look of anxiety
which I attributed to a feeling of uncer
tainty about the time when his new
clothes would reach him from Grand
street Ferdinand resetted himself from
oblivion by giving his hand in marriage
to Isabella of Castile on the 18th of Oc
tober, 1409. Five years later, Ferdinand
was proclaimed king on the death of
Henry rV, who was Isabella's brother.
It is said that her folks opposed the
marriage on the ground that Ferd could
not give the necessary bonds even if he
got the office of king: but he did, and
gave good satisfaction.
In 1493 Ferdinand drove all the JewR
out of his dominion because they would
not advertise in a paper with which he
was connected It was in this same year
that Isabella fitted out two of the three
sliips necessary for Columbus to go in
and discover America, and when he re
turned Ferdinand and Isabella obtained
a bull from Pope Alexander confirming
their title to all the territory they had
then or might thereafter discover in the
western hemisphere. So Ferdinand and
Isabella had quite a lot of wild land for
sale at the close of that year, which if
they had kept would now be very val
nablo. Take Minneapolis and New
York, for instance; both of these towns
were then in their infancy, and the
ground was cheap. Take the land, for
instance, on which Trinity church and
D:dy's billiard hall now stand. These
lots are now worth millions of dollars,
and yet a few years ago they wera se
cured by planting the Spanish flag on
our coast or buying a state of the im
provident red man with a schooner of
Tokay wine and a red carneliau nose ring.
Isabella's bust as it will appear in this
great historical tableau will have a brn
nette appearance with black hair. She
will have a fur on look and hollow legs.
She was having her measure taken for a
throne on the day I visited her. Isa
bella died Nov. 2ti. 1504, and Ferdinand,
after pawing up the earth with his tu
multuous grief and making a perfect
show of himself at the grave, proceeded
to marry Germ a i no De Foix. She was
niece of Louis XII of France, and if she
had been a grass widow could have
been culled De Foix Grass, which would
have been a Don mot Ferdinand died
Jan. 23, 1516, and had a marble prevari

their dignity and repose. Thev nave no

road on Staten Island and on to South
Beach. 1 was proud and haughty,

in order to look dignified. People who
saw us driving thus afterward paid me
a bxgh compliment by telling my wife
what a dignified and thoroughly clerical
looking coachman she had.
Since that I have not tried to look
We had quite a fright not long ago,
and I might tell it here, perhaps, as well
as elsewhere, for I think the chief charm
about a letter of this kind is its infor
mality, truth and accuracy.
My wife is not easily frightened. She
is a Chicago girl who married beneath
her statiou, so I am told; but we will let
that pass. The other evening she was
comparatively alone and reading "Three
Men in a Boat" She likes English hu
mor, because it is so pure and has such
plain directions with each book. She
was reading it thoughtfully and, prayer
fully knowing that no one could road

fern I tread so lightly especially at a
late hour. The tread slowl y approached.
My wife shivered and lolted her door.
The step turned toward the bathroom!
She had heard of burglars coming into a
private residence, taking a bath, and then
going away after stealing a few things.
Later she heard him slashing around
in the bathtub at a great rate and she
was thoroughly scared. She tried to call
some of the sen-ants, but could hot
reach them. Finally after what seemed
like a thousand years she decided to see
for herself. She could not wait. So
with loudly beating heart she opened
the door of the bathroom softly.
The light was low, but in the bathtu,
just above the water, was theejmle, still
face of a man!
He had borrowed our bathroom for
When I came home all was in con
fusion. I was never so welcome. Iu a
little brief excited talk I was told wliat
had happened. I took my trusty Ex
callibar and went to the door, listening
to seo if the dead burglar had revived.
He had not. Slowly I opened the door
and peered in.
To go back n little, I must add that w
have a bust of Benjamin Franklin at onr
house which every year requires wash
ing. The help had decided at a Lite
hour to give Benjamin a bath, and with
heavy tread had sought the bathroom
for that purpose. So when the mistress
of the house went there to discover the
burglar she found the white set features
of the great man apparently drowned
in the bath.
Try it some time if yon think it im
probable. Yon will be surprised.

now there is a difference of opinion as to
what will be the case. Some hold that
the ordinances will become law, snl others
