OLD STAGES OF NEW YORK

In excavating underneath the former
Tallman livery In New York recently
workmen found a number of straps
such as were used in former flays on
the stags coaches which plied between
Albany to Buffalo.
The straps are supposed to have
been made at the Sherwood establish?
ment, which many years ago stood at
the northeast corner of State and Dill
streets. S. C. Tallman said he be?
lieved the straps to he at least 75
rears old, and to have lain where they
ware found probably for that length of
time or longer.
It waa in 1809 that Isaac Sherwood
of Skaneatles became a partner of
Jason Barker of Utlca-in conducting
the stage line which passed through
this county, carrying the United States
mall. It la recorded that in 2816 a
line of coaches, among the proprietors
sf which was the firm of Isaac Sher?
wood ft Co. of Auburn, was operated
between Canandalgua and Utlca.
These coachea pasaed over what was
known as the Seneca turnpike, con?
structed between the two points
named. It waa designed to build this
road six rods wide, tha middle 25 feet

broken stone to a depth of 15 Inches.

In the early days. Various other lines |
besides the turnpike stages converged !
tn Auburn, there being stages to Ho- |
oaer, Ithaca, Oswego, Aurora and other
places. It was in that day that the !

Tha Pioneer Line gained control of :
the principal hotel in the village,

IT ASTONISHED THE COOK
Marvelous Appetite of "Mr. Cl?ren- ?
don/* Whose Name Waa Pass- |
port to Kitchen's Best.
J. Hay den-Clarendon, eating his
three meals lu a German grill of much
renown, has, day by day, extended his
acquaintanceship from the steward to 1
each of the wrltera and from thence
into the kitchen to the cooks. And It
so happened a while ago that one of
the cooks had had to send his wife to
a hospital. Clarendon, ever thought?
ful, bought flowers and sent them out
to the kltcheji to he forwarded thence
to the hospital. !
This, of course, made him more
than solid with the culinary depart?
ment of the big restaurant, with the
reault that whenever a waiter an?
nounced that the order was '"tor Mr.
Clarendon" the cooks would go to
the limit In getting him the best
steaks and chops and serving them as
works of art.
The waiters weren't slow In learn?
ing that the word "Clarendon" was
the passport to the kitchen's best?
the open sesame, as It were.
So it happened that one afternoon
a waiter came Into the kitchen with
MT-bone steak, rare, for Mr. Claren?
The man at the broiler threw up
"What's come over Mr Clarendon ?"
he asked In astonishment. "He has
had two porterhouse steaks, boiled
salmon, ham and eggs, three oyster
stews, sanddibs, chops, and now he
wants a T bone steak?and all in an
hour!"?San Francisco Chronicle.
Wild Bird Returns to Captivity.
Are birds able to thiuk and remem?
ber where they have been well cared
for? A gentleman living in Leith is
in the habit of feeding the birds which
'requent his garden during the winter
months. Some time in January, 1311,
he enticed a greenfinch to enter a
^age and so captured it. It waa wear?
ing a ring on its leg marked "Aber?
deen University, 71K5."*
In the following March he set it at
Iberty, declares a correspondent of
The Scotsman. He was much sur?
prised when on January 1??. 1912, tae
UN returned. On his cage being pie
tented to him, the bird hopped con?
tentedly into it and settled eomfor.a
&ry down for the severe season. An
txamination of the ring left no doubt
as to the idcutity of the bird.
When Flirting Has No Charm.
An aviation meet was given recent?
ly at Hot Springs, Ark., to the great
amazement of the native r.egro popu?
lation. Two little very black maidens
were discussing the doings of the
marvelous "bird men," and one of
them said boastfully:
"Ah wux offered $10 to go up in one
o' them flyln' machines."
"Ten dollars'" exclaimed the oth?
er "Mah goodness, chile, that's a

"Well, Ah shorely needs th* money,"

FIRST THEATER IN AMERICA
tt Wm in Philadelphia and Its Walls
Are Only Now Crumbling Into
There is an echo of the past callen
up by the falling of the walls of an
abandoned distillery on South street.
These walls once inclosed the fust
theater that was erected in the United
Slates. It was burned out some years
later, but the walls have remained to
If surprise be noted, over the loca?
tion of tue theater, it is only neces?
sary to point out that in the middle of
the eighteenth century the moral and
civic spirit of the day prevented the
profanation of the city by any such
institution, so it was erected outside
the boundaries and was in what was
known as Southwark. Of the troub?
lous history of this artistic enterprise
much has been written. It is unfortu?
nate that records of the dramas given
are not complete and that we have
few contemporary criticisms from un?
biased pens upon the artistic worth
of the thespian representations. It is
of record that the city authorities
were much shocked, that much of So?
ciety (with a large S) frowned on the
institution, and that rogues and vaga?
bonds were under the ban for a long
But even in that day there were
those who found pleasure and profit
in attending the theater. A few years
U.,ker George Washington was of those
who patronized the enterprise. At
that day the name of Washington
might have stood against the world,
and many young men at least consid?
ered that it would do them no harm to
follow their leader to the theater.
If we can believe what evidence is
available, dramatic managers In those
days had some illumination and in?
spiration, as well as being mere pur?
veyors of entertainment Tbe supply
of plays was meager and not of high
class, according to modern standards.
The theater was ill appointed and
poorly lighted* But the actors and ac?
tresses seemed to have had some
spark of divine afflatus, for they re?

IDAHO A WONDERFUL STATE

Make Money by the Fraud,
Saye Senator Borah.
United States Senator Borah claims
that his state of Idaho is so good that
even the people who get cheated with?
in its smiling domain make money by
the transaction. On his way from
Washington after the adjournment of
tho last session of congress, he was
introduced on the train to an eastern
woman who Immediately began to tell
a long, sad story about the robber
like practices of western people in
general and Idaho men In particular.
"My husband was a traveling man,"
Bhe explained in a lachrymose voice,
"and one night In Hoise City some of
your people gave him too much drink,
so much in tact, that he didn't know
what he was doing. The next morn?
ing he waked up and discovered that
he had bought fourteen hundred dol?
lars' worth of mining stock at four
cents a share. Think of that, tho
gleitest outrage I ever heard of. I
have never even looked up the mine
in which the stock was sold, but the
exiK?rlence has taught me that west?
ern promoters arc merely burglars.
My poor, dear husband was robbed
as surely as if those men had held
him up at the point of a gun."
Mr. liorah asked the name of the
mine, and she told him. Without
saying a word, he picked up a news?

BULLISH WEEK IN COTTON.
Market Takes Spurt as Result of
Xew York, July 5.?The cotton
trade was caught napping by the
Government report on Wednesday.
Everybody seemed to be buying at
once as soon as the condition and
acreage figures were announced, and
prices, therefore, rapidly advanced.
The condition was given as 80.4 per
cent, as against 78.9 a month ago,
88.2 last year and 80.7 as the ten
year average. As for the acreage, it
was given as only 34,09 7,000, or 2,
5S4.000 acres less than the total for
last year. As regards the condition,
Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Ar?

pecially bad showing. Xor do the
Crolinas, Florida or Oklahoma ap?
pear to advantage. They were well
behind last year. Georgia is so far
behind as to attract special atten?
And since the report, June 25,
there have been complaints of exces?
sive rains and cold nights in the At?
lantic section, and also to some extent
in the Eastern Gulf and eastern por?
tions of the belt. That maices some
people think that the real condition
of the crop is below SO per cent. How?
ever, very many are bullish on the
idea that the condition of the crop
is rather bad, that the season is two
or three weeks late, and that excep?
tionally favorable weather will be
meessary during July and August to
raise a crop of anything like the size
required. Of late there have been
p< r sistent heavy rains in parts of I
Georgia, Tennesse and Arkansas.
Meantime the spot sales in Liverpool J
arc surprisingly large. Hulls are
elated over this tact On the other
hand, there are those who think hat
the price of cotton is altogether too
high. Recently some of them have
been selling a little of their spot cot?
ton, evidently believing it can be re?
placed to advantage later on. The i
outlook in Texas is very favorable.
Many believe the crop in that State
will this year be the largest e\er
Poor crop reports, however, with
active spot marietta at home and
abroad, the strength of July in New
Ork ans,'and latterly the nervousness
Of shorts, have contributed to cause
an advance in pricoa The govern?
ment puts the decrease in acreage at
