OLD CLOTHES IN LONDON ALL DRIFT
, TO . A FAMOUS PLACE.
Old Clothes Mart In Houndsditcb Attracts
. Boodreds of Thousands of People Who
Want t a Wear Expensive Apparel, bat
Can't Pay Very Much For It,
Down in the unsavory and ill favored
quarter f Hoandsditch, behind the area
of the city where countless gold is made
and turned over, there is an inclosed
Bpace, pt.rt of the bo called Phil's build
ings, which goes by the descriptive name
of the Old Clothes Mart. Admission to
ib ia ooMjiieu on payment or a penny as
entrance fee, collected by a man stand
ing at the barrier that divides the street
rrom tha emporiums beyond. The gen
eral aspect is far from inviting, and a
first cursory glance 6eems to reveal only
a collec- ion of rags and decrepitude. The
floor is nothing more than the pavement.
The roof is the sky. and in rain or sun
shine the heaps of clothes are exposed
wunout protection to the changes of the
capricic us London climate. On slushy
days they present a lamentable appear
ance. Them are no benches or stalls, as in
other markets, only lines of wooden rail
ing rurning along the inclosure marked
out in lengths and apportioned to the
different venders. The goods are packed
in sacks or bundles denosited on t.rm
flags, and at the open mouth or top of
each ti displayed a sample of its con
tents, which is also temptingly laid
across the rail, whence depend the legs
of trousers, the sleeves of dresses, the
frills cf petticoats, the soles of boots or
the handles of sticks and umbrellas. The
goods vary considerably in quality and
aspect. Some are moldy, tattered or
colorls: others are in fairlv enod ren
dition, clean and serviceable.
Old Clothes Mart is victualled bv hawk
ers wl.o haunt certain suburban districts
to purchase the cast off garment of the
more modest inhabitants those who do
not htate to discuss the conditions of
the business in nerson at their front.
doors The dealings are not carried on
in cash. The hawkers, with astute knowl
edge of human nature, offer in exchange
crockery, plaster figures or even flowers
in pets, experience having successfully
provtd that a bnst, a pair of vases or a
water bottle worth sixpence is infinitely
more tempting than a shilling, and the
buyer has the satisfaction of emptying
the barrow laden with flashy, worthless
articles at a profit of 50 per cent.
Waen his original stock in trade is re
placed by weiring apparel, the hawker
adjo irns to the neighborhood of the
inaii, where he finds a group of men
calling themselves commission buyers
who bid against each other for the whole
lot The successful competitor forth
witt distributes his bargains among the
holders of the railed off compartments
inside, who' endeavor to retail them to
the customers who have paid the en
trar ce fee. The best of these customers
are always Irish buyers. They carry off
wholesale quanities for Belfast, Dublin,
tork and other localities beyond the
chaanel. Taking into consideration the
natire and general appearance of the
consignments, it is startling to learn
on sood authority that occasionally 30
and even 40 have been paid down in
cash for one lot. Credit is never given,
and payment precedes the delivery of
Hats, which, as a rule, are the most de
plorable objects, fetch but little, yet are
eagerly bought whatever their state.
Th?y are sent to Paris for the sake of
the silk on them and there manufactured
into new ones. Coats vary more in price
thitn any other article; some go for a
pe my, som for sixpence and upward to
5. There was a legend on the mart that
onacoat was actually sold for "a tenner."
Clothes that have been worn by the
highest and richest in the land have
fomd their downward way to Hounds
di sch, not excepting those once belong
in to the Prince of Wales, not that the
XU ble owners are a party to the desecra
tion, but because the valets whose per
quisites they become know of this way of
realizing money for them. The bargains
are advantageous to all parties. . Some
of the shabby, disreputable and poverty
stricken looking railing holders at the
n art, the men who haggle desperately
trrer a sixpence, are well to do capital
it ta. One of them is the proprietor of
snveral houses in a good quarter of Lon
d an. Others have a large balance at the
bank, and others still own considerable
property in stocks and shares. They
tarn over thousands of pounds in the
course of a year, which is not surprising,
S3 the mart is opened every day and vis
lied by 600 or 700 people on week days
end by 4,000 or 5,000 on Sundays. A not
t ble particularity is that while on week
(lays the stalls are free and a charge is
made for the admittance of the public
cm Sundays the stallholders pay a small
fee and the customers enter gratuitously.
The mart is open from 11 to 6. It is a
favorite lounge for the dwellers in the
district, while those on business intent
flock to it from great distances.
The old clothes mart of Honnsditch is
not comprised in the list of the 100 mar
kets mentioned in the report of the com
mittee of public control, and it may
therefore continue to exist with impuni
ty. It has been in working order for
about 60 years and is an important one
in its line. Its trade extends to Spain
and the Cape, whither go the renovated
costumes and repaired goods. France
and Scotland receive their consignments
in their un re generate state and treat
them according to their own require
ments. London Cor. New York Sun.
Carious People In Russia.
"The Chriata" are a curious sect in
Russia. They worship each other! The
chief ceremonies are a crazy species of
dancing, yelling as loudly as possible
and pounding stones with sticks.
The "SkoptBys" believe in self muti
lation, but will sot snbinii to amputation
even though it wouli save life. Like the
"Chriats," they dance and. yell for hours
without tofflrmisBion. Philadelphia

Who could have told before the other
day that Mannheim held her epoch
making tailor? Who even in Mannheim
knew it? Mein Herr Dowe the miracu
lous, as he is discovered to be was
known to his fellow citizens as a plain
Schneider," of whom something might
be made were it possible to multiply
him by nine. And now where are the
nine men barring the emperor, Prince
Bismarck and Count von Caprivi who
have stirred the fatherland as Herr
Dowe has stirred it these few days?
A little while ago Herr Dowe was so
impecunious that he was constrained to
beg the loan of the pistol wherewith he
has privately tried his experiment. This
moment he may if he like be rich beyond
the dreams of avarice. Emperors are
"wiring" him, syndicates are clustering
round him, French and Russian spies
are trying to bag him, and German de
tectives as they appear to be are foil
ing the spies. Most wonderful tailor!
Our correspondent's account makes it
clear that the new coat of mail is a rigid
garment which the warrior can put on
his breast when he faces the foe, or clap
on his back when he runs away from
him. But it strikes us that the miracu
lous tailor has not and cannot solve the
serious problem of impact, coat of,
mail can stop the swiftest bullet, but it
cannot destroy the force of the blow. Be
cause a bullet is so small a thing, few
people, soldiers excepted, understand
how great its weight is at its terrific
speed. A soldier receiving a bullet on
his coat of mail would in all probability
be knocked senseless for a time.
We can fancy him slowly coming to
himself again, sitting np and leisurely
looking round about him to see how
things were going on. He has been tech
nically dead for, nay, 5 or 10 most pre
cious minutes. But it is possible that if
80 or 40 per cent of bis regiment were in
the same position they might just as
well, from the general's point of view,
be physically dead for all time, and that
though lives were saved the day might
be lost. A warrior prostrated in that
manner might prove a source of perplex
ity to the Red Cross rescuers and the
takers of prisoners. London News.
The Control of the Nicaragua Canal.
The cost of the Nicaragua canal has
been variously estimated. The latest 1 1
have seen, and I believe it to be the high
est, ia $87,000,000. The company engaged
in its construction proposes to raise in
some way $100,000,000 an excess of $13,
000,000 above the estimated cost to pay
interest till the canal is in operation and
to provide for contingencies that may
arise. The sum is not large if the pat
ronage the canal shall receive proves to
be anything like what is predicted and
There are differences of views as to
how the canal shall be constructed and
controlled when in operation. As it will
prove most advantageous to our own
commerce, and as under public control
excessive profits will not be made on the
money invested, there is a prevailing
sentiment that the government should
build it and manage it after it is built;
that it Bhould be free to American ship
ping, and a tax imposed on foreign pa
trons only to an extent that is necessary
to pay the expense of management and
repair and a reasonable income on the
cost of construction. Richard H. Mc
Donald, Jr., in Calif ornian.
Wanted A Broken Down Race Horse.
Alexander Jones, the richest man on
the island of Barbadoes, wants an Amer
can race horse to beat the Jamaica thor
oughbreds that have been carrying every
thing before them at the Bridgetown bar
racks. He doesn't want a Salvator, or a
Lamplighter, or a Tammany. A horse
that can go a mile in about 1 :46 is good
enough. The Firenzi of theCaribbees
has a record of 1 s49. ' Mr. Jones always
insists on a pedigree, however. He isn't
particular about the horse. Tne Barba
dians are "death" on pedigrees. Four
years ago a Clifton selling plater than
which there is no more miserable crea
ture on earth was shipped to a firm in
Bridgetown, and nearly all the Jamaica
thoroughbreds were driven off the island
by him. He swept everything before
him. If we could induce the Outten
burg and Gloucester legions to emigrate
to Barbadoes with their wretched brutes,
something would be gained. New York
The San Myths.
It was in Bayard Taylor's day that the
sun myth had its vogue. One night at a
party Taylor was greatly bored by the
persistent efforts of a guest to discuss
sun myths. No matter what direction
the conversation might take this person
would ruthlessly drag it back again to
his favorite topic.
At last the distressed poet raised a
very interesting question in regard to the
threadbare subject. "Did you ever
think," he asked, "that the name Smith
so common all over the world is derived
from sun myth?" No one had ever
dreamed of such thing. Max Mailer
had overlooked the point completely.
"Quite possible, certainly most plaus
ible," said Taylor, 'Sun myth, Sumyth,
Smyth, Smith, and some still spell the
name with a y." The discussion was
ended. Youth's Companion.
