American Luxury and Love ft Money.
At Frenchman's bay, on the border of
the eastern states, a violent storm having
compelled me to stop at Machias, I ques
tioned the man at whose house I was stay
ing. That house was indeed the best in
the district, and, as people say in the coun
try, the landlord was a most respectable
man. Having exhausted the chapter rela
tive to the value and price of land, I asked
him whether he had ever been to Philadel
phia. He replied that he had n it yet done
so. He was a man of about 5 ;eara of
ae. I sea reel y dared to ask him whether
he knew Gen. Washington. "1 have never
seen him," lie said. "If you should go to
Philadelphia," I went on, "you would 1

Canadian coin is of no sma l worry in
metropolitan life. Intrinsically it is worth
more than our own, but prac -.ically it is
commercially talooed and is always a
source of irritation aud sometiiies personal
loss, except to those who deal in it as a
commodity. Nearly every time you get
change a ten cent or t wenty-five cent Cana
dian coin will slip in usually the former
whicli can scarcely he detected from our
dime. 'Then when you are in a hurrying
line at an elevated station the ticket agent
will push that coiu back to you and you
must fumble around for more mouey. If
you slfouid board a street car and happen
to have uo other change short ( f a five dol
lar bid you will be compelled to get off and
get change, for the conductor will neither
accept' your C.tnadiun piece nor change
anything bigger than a two dollar bill.
You may not have noticed up to that
time that you had the doubtful coin. You
take an inward oath that you will never
accept another, and during the next hour
w:!'. probably be caught again. Some
trad-Tmcn v.'ill take the coin a:, par, others
at a discount. There-suit is it is shifted
ou somebody else and gets passed around
in some way perhaps to you once more.

HOW HE 'WAS ENTERTAINED IN HIS
RF.ST SUIT OF CLOTHES.

Vonns Clergyman Put Bad Spirit la

It was back in the seventies when a
camp of civil engineers constituted what is
now the well kuown city of Fargo, N. D.
My husband was among the number, and
I, with our little daughter, had recently
I heard eu unusual commotion outside
the tent before rising in the morning, and
peeping out, saw a party of eight or ten
Indians, full blooded Sioux from the Mis
souri valley, on their way to pay a visit to
the "Great Fathtr" hi Washington.
Among them was the wily, keen witted,
merciless savage who afterward became so
famous Silting Bull. They had left their
native haunts clad only in t heir native
garb, but at Bismarck two or three of them
had succeeded the evening before they left
in inducting themselves into some of the
cast off clothing of Fort Lincoln soldiers.
Over these they had thrown their own
blankets, so Sitting Bull had not discov
ered the change until the next morning.
While openly scoffing at such degeneracy,
the interpreter accompanying them told
us the chief was secretly chagrined at not
having procured such gorgeous raiment
for himself, and upon his arrival at Fargo
he declined to be presented to the poten
tates of the Northern Paciiiu railroad until
KK OUT Till; CLur.ILi.
As he was resolute in his desire to have
white men's clothes a contribution was
levied on different members of the encamp
ment, the result of which, although satis
factory to him, struck the rest of us us in
expressibly ludicrous. The only pair of
trousers whose waistband was suited to his
girth belonged to a very short man, aud
gave to their present wearer that laugh
able pjearauce inseparable from abbre
viated nether garments. As no ordinary
masculine sock wits long enough to fill the
gHp U'twecn shoes and trousers. Aunt
Venny, the huge old uegro cook, was call
ed to the rescue, and a pair of snow white
stockings were given to him. There was,
of course, some difficulty in giving these
the smooth, unwrinkled appearance de
sirable, but the ebony aunty got round the
difiicu'ty l,y fastening hose and trousers
together with those useful little articles
known as safety pins.
One of our brawny teamsters contributed
a shirt. Flannel shirts were in general
wear among our engineers, and a white
one. commonly knowu as a boiled one, was
an almost unknown luxury. However,
one of the men resurrected one long
hurled hidden in a trunk, and to Sitting
Bull's great satisfaction, he was instructed
as to the approved manner of entrance
and exit. A vest was not to be found, and
it seemed for a time that civilization as
represented by a coat was for him still iu
the dim future. But here again his good
geuiirs i:i the shape of the fat old regress
intet ve .ed. A coat having U en found

tain m ule his debut before the presiding
oiliciain of the encampment.
'i he wives of several of the oTicers had
been at various times residents in the camp,
but just ;hen 1 chanced to be left alone
wit h i:.y little girl to represent our sex. 1
had been warned of the impending call,
but had been told nothing of the change of
raimer.t, and when this astounding toilet
appear;-. 1 before me, the keeping of the
muscles of my fare umler control, ami
maintaining a gravily befitting the occa
sion, was the great triumph of my life.
My little daughter was not so fortunate,
and at once gave ut terance to an uproar
ious burst of mirth, causing her father to
instantly seize ami bear her ignominiously
from the tent.
I proudly f-. it t!:at I was acquitting my
self very creaPabi.y during the interview,
and as I had lnvii instructed to invite the
chieftain to dine with us iu due form and
state, I did so.
AT TUJi MNXLIi TABLE.
Among our guests that d.iy was a young
eastern clergyman, making his first trip
over the prairies. He was a very suyjous
yot:th, strongly iiubueJ wit h the mission
ary spirit, albeit sadly laci.iag in experi
ence. 1 soon :iw l. looked npoii the meet
ing with these Indians ;w a special provi
dence, and burned with a desir.- to turn it
to accoutitin their In-half spiritually. Still
no opportunity seemed to cCer, aud we
took our daces at the table.
The yonng clergyman rose l:oui his seat,
Hwi, won arms extended o.er the table,

IV p: . f a-;y otlwr ch.iuce. I suppose,
he dixterously inrerw.ive a pe! Llou for the
conversion of the grim old savage before
him, making iu ail a rather lengthy pre
amble. The old warrior evidently regarded this
devout exercise as some sort of incantation
y a mediciue man of the pale faces, de
ziaed to affect food, for as our minister,
in his eagerness to offer a suitable petition,
wildly waved his hands over the various
dishes, Sitting Bull glanced suspiciously
from one article of focd to another, then to
the fiiceoof the white men, aud finally sank
sulleuly back in the uuaccustomed chair.
When at length his plate was filled and
sent round to him, he glowered over it,
muttered und grunted, but made no at
tempt to eat. " In distress I beckoned to the
halfbreed who served as interpreter aud
who hurg about the tent awaiting his turn
to cat. After a .series of grunts exchanged
with the savage, the halfbreed informed us,
"Great chief say white mediciue man put
bad spirit iu meat and potatoes. U chief
eat, maybe he be weak and never travel to
see the Great Father."
A long examination ensued, and at last
our grim guest fell upon his long delayed
dinner with fierce uppetite. I regret tosay.
however, that iu the training of his child
hood table manners must have been sadly
ecglected. The ouly possible use he could
see for a fork was to reach forth with bis
grimy bauds and spear various articles of
food which appeared to him desirable.
At the close of the meal the persevering
little minister was on the vratch for his op
portunity, and, as we were now better pre
pared, a decent silence ensued, and we
bowed our heads with due reverence for
the return of thanks. The poor man opened'
bis mouth and had uttered but a word or
two of adjuration when Sitting Bull rose
and with one stride reached him, placed his
band over the parson's mouth, and with an
emphatic "No, no; once enough; no more
call down the Great Spirit to crush the
chief," marched out. Cor. Denver Repub

There Is a st-.,ry attached to the condem

that they extended four inches on

The Fashionable Young Man.
A young Englishman, who is a member
of one of the leading London clulm, has
been visiting in New York for several days,
lie said iu speaking of the fashionable
young men of New York: "They have been
grossly libelled by the American uewspa
iv. rs. I see that your newspapers accuse
these young gentlemen of imitatingthe Kn
vlish geut lemen and t hat they pattern t heir
manners after then; proved code of t he lest
Ix.ndon clubs. This, I think, is untrue.
I am sure I never saw any youthful New
York swell who resembled in the slightest
Jegree any English gentleman I ever knew.
1 never have seen one of them who even
dresses like one.
"There iv an originality about American
dress whi-h you never see among English
men. Wei a veriore conventional standards
of d:vs. i ... re are few of us who would
vent are to dress in any marked way differ
ing ! -i :;; i hose with whom we are brought

clearly shown than in the difference be
tween evening dress in New York ami even
ing dress in Ixmdon. No man who belongs
to the 'smart' set in London would ever
disgrace himself by weariatr an embroider
ed shirt bosom or an embroidered waistcoat
with an evening dress. Absolutesimplicity
is the rule. The 1t4. dressed men are those
who wear no jewelry even a watch chain.
This abomination of wearing the handker
