yer, whi!e bis wife, r.n aged thengh Lazom
mammy, comes once a tretk to cmb and
do the lami'.y washing- Ye ars of industry
have revranlel the eL-cn lined couple with
a neat little back account, and outward
evidence of their thrift is shown in a costly
furaij-i.ed cottage situated not far from
their employer's resu'eticc.
Perhaps their thrift ni'cLt also be
ascribed to mammy's propensity for taking
things that duln't belong to her. For sev
eral weeks the lawyer's wift noticed that
with each washd.iy some little knickknack
or ornament woald disappear; but as the
articles were of trifling valueshe demurred
acci'.sins the old negress cf stealing them.
One day, however, a handsoir.e piece of
bric-a-brac was missed, and she communi
cated ber suspicions to her husband. The
latter volunteered to take the matter in
charge, and that evening set out for the
old folks' cottage. Arriving there he found
the male half of the household sitting: on
the ven:n!a, so sat down to chr.t with bint.
When the lawyer had a good chance he
peered through the open doorway into the
hon.se, and much to his surprise (?) the
first thing that met his gaze was the miss
ing bric-a-brac He turned to the old man
and csked how the article happened to be
in their possession. The old fellow fairly
grew pale with fright end tremblingly
'Fo' do Lawd's sake, sah, I done spec my
wife took it."
"But, uncle, continued his questioner,
"didn't you know that was stealing?"
"Yes, sah," was the mournful response,
au IV.e prayed fo' her, 1'r.e reasoned with
her, I'ze whipped her, but 'tain't no use,
sah; it's hereditorial in the family." Chi
Was It an Outrage?
A shabbily dressed young man stood in
the shadow of the stairway leading to the
Battery place station of the I. road Thurs
day a fterooon. He was talking with the
proprietor of a newsstand whose wares are
displayed beneath the ttairs. .Vteirtl-.vart
policeman was strolling leisurely along the
sidewalk whirling his day stick, which
was attached to his wrist by a leather
The young man did cot see the police
roan coming, and the policeman apparently
had no idea that the young man was there
until he had passed the entrance to the
stairway. A preat chanye came wer the
policeman when he saw the men by the
Dewsstnnd. Without a word he stepped
up to the young man and gave him a sting
ing blow on the jaw. There was so much
force in the blow that the young man nar
rowly escaped falling down and the police
man's stick dropped from his wrist.
All this looked exactly like one of those
brutal police outrages that occasionally
arouse the indignation of citizens. Cer
tainly it bad all the appearance of unpro
voked assault. 'When I asked the police
man what his action meant, he replied
"Why, he's just one of a gang of about
fifty professional beggars and toughs who
infest this side of the street. Tenants have
tried in vain to dislodge them or break up
the gang. They're cot only a nnisance.
but a menace to people who have to pass
here. They go further than begging.
They've been known actually to lay hold

money. I try to keep the sidewalk clear
of them, and about the only effective way
is to punch them once in awhile. New
A Ramlan Custom.
In compliance with an ancient Russian
custom, all t he young men and women of
the mercantile class in St. Petersburg as

stare and the latter to be stared at. The
young girls, dressed as richly as their
means will allow, are arranged in long
rows by the sides of the flower beds in the
Summer garden with their mammas stand

mothers and grandmothers are laid under

gaudy is carefully brought forward to en

Some of the young ladies are so covered
with gold and jewelry on these occasions
that their natural charms are altogether
concealed; indeed the ludicrous excess to
which this sort of decoration is sometimes
carried goes beyond what has ever been at
tempted elsewhere. Thus ledizened, the
blushing damsels are drawn up in mute
rows, while the papas, in flowing caftans
and curling leards, parade their sons up
and down. Here and there the papas and
mammas try to lead the young folks into
conversation with one another, in the
course of which certain little looks and
emotions may arise, pregnant with future
circumstances. Eight days or so after this
bridal exhibition private family meetings
take place, at which those whose hearts
are captivated nt the grand show are more
formally affianced to one another by their
parents and relatives. "Sketches of St.
