telling Photographs to Pay the KziTMea
of Their nobby.
Many photographers who started ss am
ateur in the fascinating pnntuit of t iking
pictures find themselves forced into doing
a little professional work in order to pay
the expenses of their alluring fcobby.
"One of the newest ways of these gentle
men," said a Harlem woman to a reorter
the other day, "to persuade people, yi omen
especially, to order photographs, is being
practiced pretty successfully anion r the
flat house population.
"You know many a woman whose 'vanta
far outnumber ber dollars would like to
have her childm n's pictures taken to send
to ber friends, but she cannot spars the
time to get the children and her If all
dressed and then go with them; nor can
she well afford the car fare, to say nothing
of the charges which must be made by a
photographer who pays office rent. Some
washday morning, when she is up to her
elbows in soapsuds, she answers a 1 nock
at the door, and is a good deal surpritted to
find a man there who holds before her eyes
a pretty photograph of her own little ones.
" 'Where did you get that?" she asks.
" ' I saw these pretty children,' answers
the wily photographer, 'dressed soreatly
going to the park the other day, ,-ind I
took the liberty of grouping them, mi'am,
upon tbe sidewalk and making a picture
of them for my own collection. I am an
amateur, always on the lookout for pretty
subjects, and so I photographed the little
ones for myself. When I saw how well it
turned out, I thought I would call and let
yon see it. If you would like a few for your
self I will make copies for twenty-five
"Now if there is anytime when children
look well, babies especially, it is just after
they have-been fed and washed and drissed
and sent out for a walk or a play. An hour
afterward they look like different chil Iren.
Now it's an exceptional woman wh can
resist the temptation of ordering a few
pictures when she sees her favorite Johnny
with his pretty curls looking extremely
natural and smiling at ber with eyes so
like bis father's It is the nature of chil
dren to liehave at their worst wh n a
mother wants to show them off, and -when
nobody expects anything of them to act
and look their prettiest.
"And now there they sit before the r de
lighted mother, well taken, without any
trouble to her, and if she has a dollar any
where the photographer is pretty sure to
get it. Indeed, sir, I think be was a cute
man who first thought of that way to
"And what," asked the reporter, "of the
pictures that don't flatter the childrer ?"
"Well, if lie's wise," was the amwer,
"the photographer keeps them dark, I sup
pose." New York Tribune.
"There are certain persons," remarked a
literary woman to one of her friends & she
returned from an afternoon reception,
"who are a perfect terror to me. When I
go into society where they are I am t uite
given to creeps and shivers if I see them
coming in my direction. They will pi imp
down by my side in the most affectionate,
kittenish way, and immediately burst into
all sorts of enthusiasm about something
that I have recently written or whit h is
quite as likely that they have rectntly
read. There are two or three houses which
I systematically and persistently stay sway
fro - just on this account. One of thtm is
presided over by a woman whose principal
occupation is artistic designing.
"I remember once, in a sort of retalir tion
for her gush ovrr a sketch of mine she had
been reading, that I turned to her wiuh a
.great affectation of enthusiasm and said:
" "Now. dear Mrs. A., please tell mo all
about the newest designs for carpets and
upholstery. I know you do snch lovely
ones, and really I haven't seen novelties
for quite awhile.'
"She gave a little grimace of disgust and
weariness, and exclaimed:
" 'Oh, please don't ask me to talk shop.
I get so tired of the everlasting grind of it.
I had much rather talk about that delight
ful story of yours.'
"It's a curious fact that people never
seem to realize that to a certain extent lit
erary work is drudgery. Of course it has
its pleasant features, but all the same there
is a deal or bard work attached to it, and
writers, as well as other workers, enj y a
little respite from what is to them the
humdrum of the daily labor." New York
Thackeray' Facial Appearance.
In 1849 or 1S.M) Cburlotte lironte wrote of
Thackeray: "To me the broad brow sems
to exprexs intellect. Certain lines about
the nose and cheek betray the satirist and
the cynic; the mouth indicates a child ike
simplicity perhaps even a degree of irreso
luteness in consistency weakness, in short,
but a weakness notunamiable." And Mr.
Motley, writing to his wife in 1S5S, siid:
"I believe you have never seen Thackeray.
He has the appearance of a colossal inf.int,
smooth, white, shining, ringlety hair,
flaxen, alasl with advancing yean; a
roundish face with a little dab of a nose,
upon which it is a perpetual wonder how
he keeps his spectacles."
This brnkeu nose was always a source of
amusement to Thackeray himself; he cari
catured it in his drawings, he frequently
alluded to it in his speech and in his let
ters, and he was fond of repeating Douclas
Jen-old's remark to him when be wa to
stand an godfather to a friend's ton,
"Lord, Thackeray, I hope you won't pre
sent the child with your own mug!" t.ar

"By the way, Harry," he said familia-ly,

The colonel wasn't feeling genial or
"No," he responded, "I can't, but I tan

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least one
dreaded disease that science has been
able to cure in all its stages, and that is
catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only
positive cure known to the medical fra
ternity. Catarrh being a constitutional
disease, requires a constitutional treat
ment. Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken in
tern ally, acting directly upon the blood
and mucous surfaces of tbe system
thereby destroying the foundation of the
disease, acd giving the patient strength
by building up the constitution and as
sisting nature in doing its work. The
proprietors have so much faith in its cur
ative powers, that they offer One Hun
dred Dollars for any case that it fails to
cure. Send for list of testimonials .
