"Gf ntlemen," he said, as he approached
the four of ns seated in a row in the wait
ing room, "it grinds me to the soul to be
obliged to ask favors of strangers, but
Tve got to do it right here and now."
"What's your case?" asked the man
on my left, who looked like a judge.
'Tve lost a wife and five children."
"Then my house burned down and I
got no insurance."
"Tnen I fell out of a tree and broke
Viy leg, and didn't walk for a year."
"Then I sold a piece of real estate the
only property I had and a fellow robbed
ne of cverv cent."
"Then I got a heavy cold, consumption
set in, and one of my lungs is gone and
the other going."
"Well, I'm ragged, poor, hungry and
sick, and want money to buy a 6upper
and pay for a night's lodging."
"1 see. You are hard up, indeed. I
should think you were tired of life."
"I have just one object in living."
"When I was a boy 10 years old, and
lived in Vermont, I stole a watermelon
from a farmer. My crime was never
discovered, but it has weighed like lead
on my conscience, and I know it has
hastened my end. I want to live long
enough and collect money enough to en
able me to return to Vermont, go to
that farmer's house, and, standing be
fore him, 6ay:
" 'Mr. Pritchard, thirty-nine years
ago, when I was a giddy boy, I stole a
watermelon of you. I am sorry. I
want to be forgiven before I die, and I
want to make such reparation as I can.
Here is $30,000 in gold. Take it and
buy a steamboat and say I'm forgiven.' "
"Yon are an infernal dead beat and

A Select Affair.
It is a pretty hard joke on the work
ingman, but it shows the officers of the
Metropolitan museum have an active
sense of humor.
Although this hospitable building is
closed against the public on Sunday it is
always open on that day to a favored
few. All the officers of the institution,
fellowB, founders, etc, are admitted with
their friends and families by special
cards. But the public, the working peo
ple, those who most need it and can only
come on this day, are they also admitted
by special card?
Oh, nol They are told, with all the
emphasis that a front door can give, to
go to the devil and mind their own busi
ness. And while this is done from a
deep religious motive, the favored ones
are strolling about inside with plenty of
elbow room enjoying the works of art.
They have it all to themselves. What
fun it must be! And what a hilarious
joke on the crowd outside who are ex
cluded by the religious principles of the
No Koom for Her.
It is impossible to cast one's eyes
abroad upon this serene and beautiful
world without lighting upon 6ome ob
ject that suffuses the face with a tender
glimmer of recognition. Yesterday in
Newark a mother starved, after having
distributed the last remnants of food
among her children. This tragedy has
aBequeL Application had been made
on her behalf to the overseer of the poor;
The answer was, "There was no room
for her." Thus after the tragedy ever
comes the farce; the same old moss
backed, rheumy eyed, doddering farce
that has held the stage since Elizabeth,
queen, gave a name to Virginia. And
this follows: "The city will probably be
called upon to bury the body. Now,
how shall we class that part of the per
formance? Is it pantomime, perhaps,
with Newark's overseer of the poor in
his favorite character of clown? One
would think he ought to elicit shrieks,
if not of laughter, at least of execration.

Miss Ida Van Etten, in connection with
the Working Women's society, of New
York, has been doing a grand work re
cently in organizing the city's female
wageworkers, and she has but just be

the close of the recent cloakmakers
strike. Miss Van Etten succeeded in or
ganizing the female workers of that
trade into a strong nnion, and since that
time has formed onions in the all-tobacco

makers', bookbinders', custom dress
