Traveler While Away tbe Time While
Waiting; for Train.
"Don't you know better than to pile all
your baggage on that seat?" demanded a
policeman at one of the railway depots yes
terday morning, sharply addressing a trav
eler who neemed to be waiting for a train.
"I don't see any sign here prohibiting my
piling all tbe baggage I want to on that
eat," returned the traveler, pushing his
hat back and preparing for an argument.
"When you want to keep persons from
smoking you stick up a sign, don't you t
There's half a dozen 'No smoking' signs in
this room, and not one forbidding a man
from putting bis valises on the seat beside
"We take it for granted," retorted the
policeman, "that everybody knows these
seats Are made to sit on. There's plenty
of room on the floor for bandboxes and
"There seems to be plenty of room on the
seats too. More than half of tbem are
empty. These traps of mine don't appear
to be crowding anybody, do they?"
"That doesn't make any difference. It's
against the rules."
"The rules of this station. If yon don't
take them down"
"Take down what ?"
"I didn't know but you meant the rules,"
rejoined the traveler. "But we won't have
any fuss over it. If it's contrary to the
regulations I'll put them down on the
floor of course."
He lifted his valises np, hesitated a
moment, and then replaced them on tbe
"Look here!" he said, pointing his finger
sternly at the policeman, "didn't I put
these things on the floor when I came in?"
"Xo," growled the officer. "You slapped
'em down on that seat. They've been
there half an hour."
"And you've let me violate tbe rules of
this depot for a whole half hour, have
von?" said the traveler, raising his voice.
"What kind of"
"Don't attempt any explanation, sir! I
come in here, break one of the rules, and
you see me do it ! You deliberately permit
a total htraiijrer to you, sir, to defy the
authorities of this depot for thirty min
utes! Is that the way you carry out the
instructions of your superiors? Do you
call that sort of thing doing your duty?
Don't you know, sir, t hut if you permit one
man to override the established rules and
regulations of a passenger station like
this, where thousands of men come and go
every day in the week, that everybody else
will fet-1 at l.lrty to do the same thing,
and all discipline will be at an end? If
you haven't a proper regard for your duty.
- Negro Folklore.
Here is a strange piece of folklore. For
many years, even long before the war, tbe
fiddle playing and the banjo playing had
been dying out among the negroes, owing
to a superst'tion that "de devil is a fid
dler." The very old people have noticed
this. The mr.ster of the mansion says: "In
my father's t:me, and when I was a boy,
there were few regular musicians, and at
parties, unless it was a very grand affair,
a lady played the piano, accompanied by a
gentletnan on the violin, and monstrous
good jiijs and reels they played too. But
wht-n it got too much like work almost
anybody's carriage driver ci.-uM In? sent
for out of the kitchen, wlio eonld fiddle
well enough to dance the Virginia reel by.
But when I grew up negro fiddlers' were
scarce among the plantation hands, except
the 'professionals, who were free negroes.
They have been growing scarcer, owing to
this superstition about old Pluto.
"Among the city negroes the piano is the
favorite instrument, as it is so much easier
to acquire a certain proficiency on it than
on the violin. In the country, though, it
is generally thought unbecoming, at least,
for a 'chu'eh member to play the violin, if
not actually an auducious communication
with Satin himself. But it involves
neither deadly sin nor any spiritual risk
whatever to play the accordion or the
"laporgan," as they call it. The ' 'cor'jon,'
consequently, is a very popular instru
ment." Boston Transcript.
Repairing m Trolley Wire.
Every one is accustomed to seeing tele
graph linemen or electric light linemen
climb a pole to repair wires, and knows
that it is done by means of two sharp spurs
fastened to the inside of the instep. It is
not every one, however, who knows how
the repairs are made to the trolley wires,
or how they are first fastened in place. The
iron polf-s prevent any climbing. I was
wondering, while riding on a horse car a
few days ago, how the work was done,
when directly in front I saw the most pe
culiar looking kind of a wagon. The
wheels and box were quite similar to any
ot her heavy conveyance, but built np from
the box was a tower about seventeen or
eighteen feet high, on the top of which there
sax a lineman. The wagon had stopped di
rectly under the spot where two wires of the
trolley crossed in t he center of the street.
The man with hispinchersquickly fastened
them, and at the same time solved for me
the puzzle of how the man got there to
make repairs. Brooklyn Kagle.

CLEMAMM & SALZMANN,
A Pretty Table.
A work table, which was an original idea
with its maker and owner, will bear de
scription and copying. The table founda
tion was an oblong top piece with a broom
handle tripod, upon which it rested firmly
These can be bought in any furniture store,
plain, gilded or white, for fifty or seventy-
five cents. Over the top was fitted a flat
cover or cream cretonne covered with
daisies. A straight piece fourteen inches
in depth, sewed to the top piece on
every side was the foundation for a double
row of shirred on pockets of the cretonne
on three sides. The fourth side had only
one deep pocket for large pieces of work.
A bow or yellow nbnon finished one
corner, and to this was attached, by hang
mg narrow ribbons, scissors, emery and
needle book. A small cushion for pins
stood on the top beside a little lacquer tray
as a temporary catch all for odd buttons.

bag cover was that it was not fastened to
the table, but conld lie taken off, turned
inside out, shaken free of dust and restored
in a moment of time and with great ease.
