THE STAMP BUSINESS.
Hw Clerk In Insurance Offle
Makes a Good Thing on Stamps.
I was strolling through Nassau street a
few days ai?ce when I happened to see a
large, upright glass case, in which and
about two-thirds toward the top there
were thousands of foreign stamps of num
berless nationalities and varieties. On a
large poster on the inside was written "25
cents a thousand." I went up stairs and
purchased a thousand, and while looking
over a catalogue of stamps and coins
which was attached by a chain to the
counter, I remarked to the. party in charge
that they seemed to be very reasonable as
to their charges for them.
"Well," he said, "I'll tell you how it is.
We buy those kind for nearly nothing.
They are all common. Probably out of
that thousand you may find fifty different
varieties, and all the rest are -duplicates.
The fifty that, wore you a beginner (who,
by the way, are the only ones who do buy
them), you would lind useful are of course
only the very commonest stamps that we
get. The others we paste on sheets or put
in envelopes, and in that way sell them
for much better prices. It is a sort of job
lot, don't 5 0U see, but you don't lose any
money on it at the price, for you can use
the singles and trade off others among any
stamp collectors you know."
Just at this moment a young man came
in who carried a small satchel loaded with
diiTen-nt envelopes, which he proceeded to
deposit on the counter. Out of these, one
after another, he pulled stamps of all coun
tries of the globe, some exceedingly rare
specimens and others common. I moved
up closf r to him and started the conversa
tion by asking him if he was the repre
sentative of some stamp collector.
"Oh, no," he said, "I get them as they
come to the office where I am employed."
I waited, and he and the dealer argued
as to the price they were worth, until the
bargain was consummated, and I was
somewhat surprised to see the young man
receive $-25.50 for the envelopes and their
contents. As we walked away together I
pursued my inquiries and speedily found
the statement of the clerk in my insur
ance office verified. Said my new ac
quaintance: ''I am employed in a large life insurance
office near here, and the foreign mails that
arrive from our respective agencies are
very large. We have branches all over
the world, and all the letters addressed to
the company go through my hands for
opening and assorting lief ore passing into
the hands of the auditor, who attends to
the balance of the business. The stamped
envelopes I keep myself, and the rest, bar
ring those stamps which I may lie asked to
give the officers of the company, whose
children may lie interested in the collection
of foreign postage stamps, I sell to the
dealers for what I consider a fair price.
"Of course sometimes the business is
better than others, but that lot which I
sold today I have collected for two months,
so you may jilgo yourself just what the
stamp business is i:i thtse large corpora
tions. And then you must also take into
consideration that the lot I sold tip there
was just about half I get, for I sell a good
many to traveling men. Uy that I mean
agents who are in the habit of coming into
the office looking for me to sell them my
best and rarest specimens. Why, I know
one young fellow who makes a very fair
living just going the rounds of the large
offices once a week or so, looking at any
thing we may have new." Collector.
An Order That Tailors Like.
"What kind of clothes would you imag
ine net us the largest profit?"' asked a
well known tailor yesterday. "Don't
know, eh? Well, I'll tell you. Why, dead
men's clothes, of course. You needn't
stare. It's a fact, I assure you. We
would rather get an order from a dead
man than from our promptest paying cus
tomer. You see, in the first place, we get
better paid, because we have to rush the
job through in a hurry. Then, too, a dead
man never kirks about the fit, and never
brings a suit back to be altered. Hut the
greatest saving is in the fact that the
clothes are not finished a-s ordinary suits
are, A dead man, you know, has no use
for pockets, so we don't put any in. We
don't put lining in as a rule. The man
lies on his back in the coffin, and the seams
of the coat are only stitched. Oh, there
are lots of ways of saving in that kind of
a job. Give me an order from a dead man,
every time." Philadelphia Ilecord.
A Witty Ilrmark.
Of one of the tutors Thompson said:
"That little man: lie devotes all the time
he can spare from the adornment of his
person to the mismanagement of his pu
pils." This is of the same family as John
sou's famous retort to the bargee. An or
dinary person would have said, "lie de
votes all the time he can spare from the
management of his pupils to the adorn
ment of his person." This is what was to
be expected, but by a mere twist the mas
ter makes it witty. Gentleman's Maga

When Humboldt traveled through the
forests that border the Orinoco river he
came across a tree that provided the na
tives with shirts. The custom was to peel
off the bark of this tree in two-feet lengths,
then fastening the pieces together again
the opening at the top served for the head
and two holes at the sides for the arms.
Whatever view the natives may have taken
of themselves in this garment, toEurojiean
eyes they must have looked very funny.
Princess YoussoupofT has an oriental
pearl which is unique for the beauty of
its color. In 1G20 this pearl was sold by
Georgibus of Calais to Philip IV of Spain
at the price of 80,000 ducats. Today it is
valued at 4.",000. Pope Leo XIII, again,
owns a pearl, left to him by his predeces
sor on the throne of St. Peter, which is
worth J0,00J, and the chain of thirty-two
pearls owned by the Km press Frederick is
estimated at 35,000. Pall Mall Gazette.

Colors Hard to Imitate.
Before jewels were dyed with aniline
colors it has been impossible to impart to
paste the pure color of certain jewels; for
instance, a pure ruby red or emerald green
cannot be produced by melting compound
color substances, and any paste prepared in
this manner is of an "off" color and easily
recognized by an expert. Jewelers Circular.
