A Clever Artist With Scissors.
"The New Yoi k Central Railroad com
pany s reproduc-ion of the first railroad
tram and locorr otive ever run ij New
ork state, a m.st interesting and valu
able exhibit at tiie Chicago fair," said an
old resident of Albany, "causes me to
wonder how many of the officers of that
company know -.hat if the disappearance
of Morgan frori Batavia Co years a?o
bad not been fttributed to murderous
machinations of the Masonic fraternity
which resulted in tho great anti-Masonic
excitement tha- spread throughout the
country and became a sensational polit
ical factor, the;.- would not have been
able to make the reproduction, and the
appearance of tmt curious railroad train
and engine won never havo been known
m accurate and pictorial representation.
"It was years before the discovery ami
practical introd ictionof that crude pred
ecessor of photography, tho daguerreo
type, when the pioneer railroad train in
this state was ran, and as the future im
portance to history of the apiearancc of
that train never occurred to those inter
ested in bringing it into existenco the
skill of no nr;ist with his pencil was
brought into nso to perpetuate it on
Taper. It happened that a young man
named Brown William II. Brown of
Philadelphia was in Albany on the day
tho train was rjn, Aug. 0, l!s:n, and had
been in the pla.-c several days.
"He had a m:.rvelous talent for cutting
with a pair of i cissors out of black paper
lifelike profik portraits and accurate
representations of buildings, machinery
and even lands -npes.
"The remarl able part of this talent of
his was his power to mako a jierfectly
exact p.ortrr.:t of persons days and even
weeks after lu.ving seen them but once,
and that only t asually on the street.
"He had for some time made a good liv
ing by tho exercise of his peculiar art.
Thaddeus Stevens was at that time just
beginning to make a reputation in poli
tics and had seized upon the anti-Masonic
idea for uso ii Pennsylvania, as it had
been no succes ..fully worked bv Tliurlow

wonderful wo.-k took the town bysti,nn,
and he was kept busy from morning un
til night cutting the silhouette likenesses
of people of ill kinds, sexos and age..
that flocked t his rooms.
"His greatest artistic feat was the cut
ting in ono la-go picture of the famous
Burgess corps entire, with staff nnd band
in full parade, each member's portrait
being of surprising accuracy. This pic
ture is among tho most precious relics in
tho state library.
"And so it happened that this unique
young artist was in Albany on tho day
tho quaint locomotive Do Witt Clinton,
with its equal, y quain t coaches, was to bo
run on its first trip over the Mohawk and
Hudson railrc ad.
"He waa ore of tho passengers on tho
train, and when it returned to Albany
he cut with his scissors an exact picture
of tho locomotive and two of the coaches,
making the portrait of David Matthew,
the engineer, and John T. Clark, the con
ductor, on his seat on the outside of the
"In that picture appear tho likenesses
of Thnrlow Weed, ex-Governor Yates
and other distinguished Albanians of
that day, but neither Mr. Weed nor the
ex-governor was on the train. Without
a thought of the future of that picture
aa a valuabla contribution to history,
the artist ct t those portraits merely as
an exercise of his skill in depicting a sub
ject from memory. He told me so him
self 40 years afterward.
"While A-tist Brown was in Albany
he concluded to go to Boston and Hart
ford to mako some portraits and other
cuttings with his marvelous scissors.
While in Hartford he showed the picture
he had mado of the railroad train and
locomotive to a member of the Connecti
cut Histories 1 society, who at once saw
what a treasure it must necessarily be
come, and tl. e artist presented it to the
society, where it is today a relic beyond
"Some SO years after cutting that pic
ture Brown became interested in tho
railroad business himself, having long
ceased to ex .-rciso his artistic skill pro
fessionally, i nd one day, having almost
forgotten the Albany picture, he read
in a newspaper an account of a litho
graph that had just been published
from a photograph of the silhouette pic
ture he had presented to tho Connecticut
"He Bent to the publisher of the litho
graph and procured a copy of it and was
rejoiced tosiesn exact reproduction of
his scissors catting of more than SO years
before. But. the joy he felt over a sight
of the picture was scarcely as great as
the inscripti jn beneath it gave him.
"The dat3 of the running of the tram
was given as some time in 1832, tho
name of the locomotive being the John
Bull instead of the De Witt Clinton and
the name of the engineer John HampsOn
instead of David Matthew.
"Brown lit once set about the task of
correcting 1 10 lithograph publishers his
tory, a taak at which he worked for
more than 80 years, for the lithograph
copy of his picture, with its incorrect
inscription, had been widely circulated.

It Is Not All of the Time.
"I had an experience today," said Mrs. j
John as she broke off a bit of her soup t
bread last night and began daintily to J
sip her cream of asparagus. 1
"You have so many," I replied, "that
it should bo no novelty, and they are all
interesting," I finished invitingly, though
I knew I should get the "experience"
without this little sop.
Mrs. John merely arched her eyebrows.
"It was a small one," she went on,
"but it is one of so many similar that ic
set mo to thinking afterward during my
ride up town."
"I was in a shop near a crowded coun
ter to which I vainly tried to get access,
when I saw a woman complete her pur
chase, pay her money and stand waiting
for the change. I thought this an oppor
tunity, and I spoke to her: 'May I havo
your place, please, if you are through?'
'Not until 1 a:n through,' she replied
coldly, wi.h ir.t ev.';i turning her head,
and she stood thtre l. early live minutes
longer b; fore parcels and coins wero
handed to her."
"I think." I replied, "she was a tele

"I stood waiting my turn in tho line
with two men before me," continued
Mrs. John, "when this woman walked
up and along tho li'ie and calmly thrust
herself before us all."
"Well, isn't that what you call wom
an's progress?" I couldn't help inquiring.
"It was one woman's progress," re
torted Mrs. John, "and everybody hated
her for it."
Then she dropped her vehemence and
"It was tuL; double experience which,
as I said, set mo to thinking. I began to
wonder when we r.ro -ladies,' if at all.
"We aro not certainly when we do
either of these selfish and unjust things,
nor pushing and scrambling around a
bargain counter, nor spreading our skirta
ovtr two seats iu a filling street car. We
are not when in church or elsewhere we
are overcome with the consciousness of
being better dressed than our neighbors,
nor when we are devouring a bit of gos
sip, repeating and enlarging upon it; nor,'
indeed, when we aro scolding the chil
dren, quarreling with servants or re
garding, if we are boj.r.lers, our land
lady ,-f.i a neutral enemy. "'

was one of tho unhappy lour, "I shall

Then she caught my eye, and we both

defiantly, "then or now. It is a pity

The All the Year Round Uathing Club.

members, simply pledged themselves to
bathe in the Serpentine river every morn

to say that none but the strongest con
stitutions are able to comply with tho
rules, but a sturdy body of men of vary
ing ages for Beveral years carried out the
obligations to the letter, and when it
was necessary they would cheerfully
break the ice before entering the river.
Medical men frequently accompanied
the bathers, and quite a number of pa

The Influence of Association.
One sometimes wonders at the singula!
lapses into slovenly and illiterate blun
ders conspicuous in men and women who
"should know better." True, they should
and probably do know better, but in
daily practice few people rise very mucli
above tho ordinary level of those with
whom they always converse. A city
bred girl went to live in a part of tho
country where provincialisms aro the
current coin of daily talk. Returning n
few years later to her home, no one
would have supposed her to be the same
person, so many queer little phrases and
downright forms of speech, irfelegant
and lacking in good form, had she, a very

Making imitation uiamouu.
The material in which imitation dia
monds are produced is called strass,
from the name of its inventor, a German
jeweler who flourished at tho leginning
of tho present century. It is perfectly
colorless and transparent glass, or rather
crystal, of irreproachable purity, com
posed of rock crystal, or of white sand,
mixed with oxide of lead, arsenical acid
and other ingredients. Its preparation
demands infinite care and a multitude
of precautions, to avoiel tho possibility
of tho slightest flaw or bubble being
introduced into tjio mass, from which
are then cut the false gems in the pro
portions desired. Small or medium
sized diamonds produce a much better
effect than do large ones.
For the best forms of imitation jewel
ry they aro cut by the same workmen
that are employed in executing that
function with real stones. Their task is
much easier, owing to the comparative
softness of t trass, a quality which causes
ornaments in imitation diamonds to lose
very speedily their brilliancy and their
deceptive aspect. To remedy this state
of things imitation emeralds, rubii's and
sapphires an; often set with a layer or
slice c ut from a real precious stone of in
ferior value and cemented with a trans
parent and colorless compound on the
top of the false gem, so as to cover it
completely. Ladies' Home Journal.
F:tlfot:s In Japan.
In the olden times in Japan allthedai
mios (similar to the old English lord) had
great sport with falcons, as they we;:t
out to the field to catch other birds with
falcons. The falcons were tamed well
and used to catch large birds, mostly
cranes. When people now go tint hunt
ing with falcons, the men in charge hold
the falcons upon their fingers. As s:or
as one sees any bird ho lets the falcon
rush at the bird: as soon as the falcon
reaches the bird he bites at the throat
nnd throws the bird down to the ground.
Meanwhile the holder runs to the placo
where they are and catcluboth of them.
Falct us are not large birds, but aa ' hoy
belong to the eagle family they aro
Btn mg and brave and never afraid to go
at any bird to kill it. but the men in
charge of falcons of course take great
caro in fee'ding and taming them. Chi
