Drawn from ocean's cool depths by the
alluring music of the waves, a glorious
nymph lightly rises on a foam capped bil
low, pauses on its crest with an allurinR
to&sund smile, softly glides into the shadow
from whence anon she springs, foam
crowned and sparkling, to sport with the
breeze, w hile her coral bells rin chimes to
Neptune's pulsating heart.
Rising oa the crest of a wave, suddenly
enamored ocean clasps her to his bosotn,
from whom she springs, wrathful and
frowning, only to be caught and flung, all
smiling and radiant, to the caressing sun
light, but all mermaid and water sprite,
she flirts with the spray ami veils herself
with its liquid sheen, and leaping to meet
the flying zephyr's kisses shakes showers
of sparkling diamonds from her floating
With a threatening toss at tbe too fa
miliar sunleams she pauses for an instant
on the toppling height of a billow, then,
tossing a kiss to admiring nature, ag tin
plunges into the green shadows, while tbe
music of the waves softly woo9 her back.
Clothed in a mantle of foam she allows
herself to be charmed to return, and then
scolding the familiar waves aud softly ca
ressing the sunbeams she floats and bounds
in the music's wild undulation, until with
a joyous bound and farewell kiss to the
breeze, followed by a glittering stream of
light, she sinks into Neptune's enchanted
caves and leaves all nature sad and sigh

Watt and the Steamboat.
James Watt, who did bo much to make
the steam engine of practical use, did not,
ao far as can be learned, take any deep in
terest in the subject of steam navigation.
Yet incidentally he did a good deal to ad
vance it. In his old age he paid a visit to
Lis native town of Greenock.
On Aug. 15, 1813, a small steamboat had
begun making regular trips between that
place and Glasgow, and gradually tbe
service was extended to other points, sev
eral boats being put into commission. The
old engineer went on one of the new ves
sels to Rothesay and back, the trip then
occupying the whole day. Mr. William
son, in his "Memories of James Watt,"
tells this story of tbe voyage:
"Mr. Watt entered into conversation
with the engineer of tbe boat, pointing oat
to him the method of backing the engine.
"With a foot rule he demonstrated to him
what he meant. Not succeeding, however,
he at last, under the influence of the ruling
passion, threw off his overcoat, and pat
ting his hand to the engine himself, showed
taa practical application of his lecture.
Previous to this the back stroke ot th
team boat engine was either unknown or
not generally acted on. The practice was
to stop the engine entirely a considerable
time before the vessel reached the point of
mooring,' fn order to allow the gradual and
natural diminution of her speed." Chl-
A CUIET STREET IN NEW YORK.
TVere la Oa Short Alley Which Ia
Remarkably Free from Koiae.
A oueer place is Extra place, the little
ont ct the way street from which Louis
Weinhagen was taken as a cholera suspect.
It is only one block long. It opens on First
street, the rear end stopping t.bruptly at
the back yards of the Second street houses.
It is the oddest and quietest block in the
lower east side. Green trees are rare in
that section of the city, but a ; lance over
the board fence at the end of Extra place
reveals the tops of half a dozen oaks in tbe
rear yards of the Second street houses, and
their green foliage forms a pleasant con
trast to the dull colored double tenements
on either side.
The side walls of the buildings at 10 and
12 First street run back some distance
from the corners, aud then cones, on the
left hand siila, the rear wails c f the rear
tenements behind buildings Taring the
Bowery. On the right hand side, how
ever, immediately adjoining tbe side wall
of 12 First street, are two five story tene
ments numbered 4 and 5. Behind them is
a courtyard in front of a rear t'-nemmt of
the kind known as double d t-ker. An
alley between 14 and ltf First svreet l.-ads
to t be open court and the rear t menient.
These three tenements are pnbably the
best known living houses on tin east side,
and their owner, Mrs. tiunther, who run
them as a gigantic boarding house, is well
known by the workingmen o the city.
Mrs. Guuther has a lai-ge heart, as many
laltore-rs who have len down with hard
luck can tft'.fy. Her lo-iers numbtr
generally Ih-lv. e. n 20u and 3tJ. They range
from the ht'i carrier to t lie poor mechanic,
and are tn-at--d alike. The houses are full
almost always. Mrs. Guntherj rovides ac
commodations for all hoiiert w rkin-uif-ii,
whether they have motu-j or no Her big
dining rooms in the b;ii-ment ot the Kxtra
place bouws are a sihtto be seen at nio-U
hours, although all of her lodters tio nut
eat at her table; some, eat outside.
Without Mrs. (inn' .tier's establishment,
Extra place would be in il.mei of sinking
to the ordinary level. IVdHers rarely
venture into the street. Mr.. Guntlnr
doesn't like tlicni ami her lodci rs will i ot
tolerate them nearby. The 1. ulcers e i
dently appreciate this fact thi t theirs
the cpiietest spot for miies a-ound, and
woe !etiie the loud voiced pt ddler who
dares to venture around the co: n r. Dur
ing the summer Kxtra is a pictur
esque locality. Mrs. Ounthei's lodgers,
in their shirt sleeves, s.t on the sidewalk
during the evenings, smoke : heir pipes
and swap stories. Ail is quiet and peace
ful there, yet a walk of OI ly half a
minute briuj-s one into the din and confu
sion of the llowery. Fverythijg is clean
in the street and the tenements.

Saturday evening a gentleman sent his
little boy to the Palace hotel to invite
Senator Sam Majors, of Fayette, to dine
with him Sunday. The boy went, and,
mistaking Father Denipsey for thesenator.
said, "Papa says for you to be sure and
come to the Baptist church to preaching
tomorrow and take dinner with him."
The priest did not know the boy or whom
he meant by "papa," and a gentleman
sitting by told him who "papa" was. Tne
reverend gentleman said, "I have an en

UNPAID MONEY ORDERS.
Million! ot Dollar In the Sobtreaiurv
Waiting for the Owner.
In tbe subtreasury in New York city
there is on deposit today more than $3,000,
0J0 representing outstanding money ordera,
and of this amount more than 12,000,000
represent money orders which are over
due, and which may never be presented for
It seems strange, under tbe precaution
ary system now used by the postoftice de
partment, that such an enormous amount
of money should have accumulated to tbe
credit of unpaid money orders, but the
chief accumulation was under the original
rules of the office, which were much more
conservative than those now ia force.
If A at Columbus sent a money order to
B in Cincinnati twenty-five years ago, and
B did not present that order for payment,
the postmaster at Cincinnati might meet
B three times a day for a year, and under
the regulations of the postoftice depart
ment he could not tell him that the money
was awaiting his order. The postmaster
at Columbus could not notify A that the
money remained unclaimed. So if the
the order had gone astray probably B won
dered why A did cot seud that money to
him; and A puzzled over the fact that 11
did not acknowledge the reel;.'. f i. , :
unless they came together and had an un
derstanding, the money was never claimed,
and it lies ia the subtreasury today await
ing an order from A or B.
But if A sent a money order to I today
and the order was not presented for pay
mei.t the postmaster at Cincinnati exam
ining the letters of advice received f.-oru
ot her oliices at the end of a month, and
finding this money order to have been un
paid at the end of the previous month,
would notify 13 that there was a money
order in his favor ou file in the ofiice, sent
to him by A from Columbus. If at the
end of another month the money order was
still unpaid he would notify him again.
And if at the end cf a third month the
money bad not been claimed, he would ad
vise the postmaster at Columbus, who
would notify A that his money order in
favor of B Lad not been presented at the
postefiice in Cincinnati, and ask him to
urce B to have it cashed. It would seem
that these precautions ought to insure the
payment of money orders within a reason
able time, yet every year hundreds of them
remain unpaid until they are invalid.
The fcujierintendent of the money order
ofiice seldom receives any explanation ,C
the delay ia cashing a money order. Ail
duplicates are issm-d from his office, but
there is a regular form cf application for
duplicates kept on file in all money order
oSices, and all that the superintendent re-e-eives
usually is an application made out
on one of tuese blanks. Occasionally the
I o--tmast.er forwarding the application
sends a letter telling the circumstances of
tae delay iu having the order cashed, and
sometimes the applicant for a duplicate
sends a letter to Dr. Macdomild. the sujier-iMi-nuctit,
giving au explanation of the
Mu h an explanation came four years ago
from the i xecutor of a German "bishop in
the interior of Pennsylvania. He sent ia
a bundle ot money orders which wire
found in the bishop's desk. He said thr.t
there was a bishop's fund, to which the
conregatioi s in the diocese contributed,
and many of the remittances were sent by
money orders. These money orders the
bishop put into one cf the pigeonholes of
bis desk, and they accumulated there un
paid until his death. Many oid money or
ders come from executors of estates. Some
are held awaiting the settlement of law
suits. Dr. Macdonald received quite a collec
tion of old money orders for duplication
recently from a newspaper publisher
named Wood row, living in South Caro
lina. His business bad gone into the
hands of a receiver, and all cf the money
orders that came in his mail were held hv
the receiver as cash. When Woodrow
came to his own again, he found an assort
ment of invalid money orders, which he
tent to Br. Macdonald for duplication.
Tbe money order ollioe has been running
as a po-tal savings institution for many
years. Men who go from the east to make
their fortunes in the new west frequently
buy with their savings money orders, pay
able to themselves at New York, Philadel
phia or soiMe other eastern city. They
know that the money is wcure, because
the mouej 3r,ii r cannot be cashed i e any
one cl.-c. if it i-. lost or stolen, and b. . a i e

The detailed bills which one receives at

of one reci ive.l in a restaurant not far
from London. It consi. is of a thin slip of

inches wide, with the name of the res

sixteen articles which may be ordered,

Cheese and butter 1
Liquors and aerated waters 4
Table napkin 1
To get a napkin in that eating house one
had to order is just as be would any article
which he wished to eat. otherwise he would
go without. The most curious thing here,
however, is the item "liquors and aerated
waters." No one could ever guess that
this was designed to cover a cup of tea, Nn
tea was provided for in the bill, and the
waitress evidently thought it wise to take
a title sufficiently inclusive.
It will be noticed that "attendance" was
charged for in this bill. It would be rash
to assume that this absolved the patron
from the customary "tip." London Cor.

The Beggars of Malta,
Beggars swarm so in Malta that, ac
cording to Rev. J. E. Hardy's sketch of
Maltese life, the only way to avoid being
pestered by them is to put out the hollow
of your hand and anticipate them with
their own whining "Give me something,"
"Me plenty poor man," "Me very largo
family." Boms of these beggars are sup
posed to have acquired a good deal of
money, and it is said that the priests order
people to live by begging for awhile as
On the other hand, with those who will
work it is hard to do business owing to
their reluctance to name a price for their
