HE G OT A CLERKSHIP
THE SENATOR MADE A BLUNDER DY
WHICH THE APPLICANT PROFITED.
Whoa Senator ItluuU Wuuted Anything
From Socrctory Ctiamllcr, Uo Wanted
It I!:i:l?Umr tlio Yotiug Man Wnj L,ot
D?rrn Unsy tvnd liciiiiihieci.
Back in tlio seventies, when Zocb
Ohnndlor was at the hoadof the interior
department, n young iuau from ouo of
the western states came to Washington
to try clerical lifo in one of tho depart?
ments, lie had been quito a ward poli?
tician in his western homo and imagined
both the setintors from his stnto would
bo glad to do him u fnvor. Ho spent
several days taking in tho sights of the
capital, then went up to tho senate ouo
afternoon and sent in Iiis card to Sena?
tor Blank. Tho senator responded
promptly, had tho visitor shown into
tho inarblo room, and for sonio tiuio
they sat on n sofa together, talking of
home news and tho homo crops. Then
the young man broku the ico by inform?
ing tho senator just what hind of a place
he wanted?didn't caro much what de?
partment it was in.
"Well, I don't know," said tho sena?
tor. "Such places uro not to ha found
every day, and thoro avo hundreds hero
from about every state in tho Union
locking for almost anything in the 6bnpe
of an appointment.
"Como up to my house about 8
o'clock tonight," said the .senator, "and
wo'll talk the matter over."
Promptly at tho appointed timo ho
pulled tho doorbell and'was ushered in?
to the library, whero ho found tho sen?
ator puffing n cigar and looking over
The Evening Star.
"Ah, good evening, Mr.-! I was
just thinking of you," said Senator
Blank. "I have written a strong letter
to Secretary Chandler, requesting him
to give you n position in tho interior
department"?picking up an unsealed
letter from his desk and handing it to
the young office seeker?"and I would
suggest that yon call at his ofiico and
present it about 10 o'clock tomorrow
morning. I liavo also mailed the secre?
tary a littlo personal note, lotting him
know that when I want anything in his
ofiico I want it bad."
Tho young westerner was bowed out
of tho room with smiles and a hearty
handshake. At his hotel he sat down to
1 hink over his good luck. Then ho
thought of tho senator's letter, and pull?
ed it out of his pocket and road :
Dr.An C'?anijleu?Sorna timo tomorrow 1
moraing 0 young citizen of ray great and t:h>
rioua state t.-ill call on you with a strong in?
dorsement from mo for n clerkship. I havo no
earthly interest in him, so I turn him over to
your tender mercy. Lot him down easy.
Tho yenng man dropped tho letter, and
a big sigh Etrugglcd up from under his
WOtcb pocket. "I wonder what ho said
in the little note ho mailed to tho secre?
tary?" thought tho young candidate.
Then ho realized that tho senator had
given him tho wrong letter, und lfo nt
ouco determined to call at the interior
department tho next morning and see
What tho next chapter would bring forth.
About 10 o'clock the noxt forenoon
tho colored messenger showed a young
man into Secretary Chandler's office.
"Senator Blank told mo last night ho
had written you and advised mo to call
on yon this morning," said tho young
"Ah, yes," smiled tho secretary good
uatnredly, picking up from his desk an
open letter and glancing over it. "The
senator speaks of yon in the highest
terms, and is very urgent in his request
for your appointment. Wait n moment. "
And touching a bull ho sent his messen?
ger for tho chief clerk. After a mo?
ment's conversation with tho chief clerk
tho secretary said:
"You uro fortunate. Thero is n $1,200
clerkship made vacant by resignation
this morning, and I have ordered your
appointment to the place."
A month later Senator Blank was
walking through tho patent office, and
in tho corridor met tho new clerk in his
ofiico coat. The senator was surprised
and a triilo disconcerted) but ho shook
hands with bis young friend and said ho
was glad to seo him there.
"Well, I'm gladt?h?here," respond?
ed tho clerk. "And, senator," putting
his hand insido his vest and looking
squarely in tho others eye, "right in
my inside pocket I keep that little per?
sonal noto you thought you mailed to
Secretary Chandler, telling him whon
j'ou wanted a thing you wanted it bad. "
Explanations were unnecessary. The
senator went out of public lifo and died
long ago, but tlio clerk manages to
squeeze along through tho hard times on
his ?1,S00 a year.?Washington Star.
Tho I'"irst Lesson of nu Arui> Hoy.
The very first lessen which an Arab
baby learns when ho begins to talk is
to keep facts to himself. It does not
sound very friendly put in that way,
but it saves a deal of trouble. Foreign?
ers do not understand Arabs. They ask
them pointed questions and receive- pe?
culiar answers. They construe tho an?
swers to please themselves, and como
away to tell thoworl' that tho Arabs
aro a nation of liars. They aro not a na?
tion of liars. Perhaps if they should tell
tho foreigners to mind their own affairs
and let thorn and theirs nlono the for?
eigners would understand them better.?

Corner Jefferson St. and Kailro.id Ave.,
Tlio Ccntml I'nrlc I'ollco Have a Systora
of Their Own.
Every mounted policeman connected
with the Central park squad nwoars by
his horso. No other animal, in his opin?
ion, is quite as good, sound or well
trained for tho ofttiuies difficult work
which they aro called upon to porforiu.
This pride in their horses has led to a
friendly spirit of rivalry between tho
men, which is undoubtedly tho cause of
the excellence of tho department. Tho
Stopping of a runaway in tho drives or
bridlo paths is by no means an easy un?
dertaking. Tho comparatively few seri?
ous accidents resulting from runaways,
which during tho greator portion of tho
year average move than 50 a month,
speak woll for the skill and daring of
tho mounted squad. Sergeant Egan,
who has command of tho squad, do
clures that any ouo of his men can givo
"p's" and "q's" to any cowboy that
ever straddled u horse.
"\Yc have had 'cow punchers' in our
ranks," said tho sergeant, "whocould
pick up a handkerchief from tho ground
while riding at breakneck speed, or
throw a lasso to perfection, but when
it came to taking their lives in their
hands in stopping a runaway they were
'not in it' with some of our New York
boys who never mounted a horso until
they joined the squad. I'll warrant that
any of my men will catch any runaway
that ever started in tho park. Would
you liko to seo our system of stopping
Baldwin was called in and tho ser?
geant gave orders to havo his horso sad?
dled. When all was in readiness, tho
two men rode down the bridle path to
give an illustration of the system which
all tlio men have practiced and studied
until they now havo it down to perfec?
tion. Sergeant Egan halted and Bald?
win, on his horso Harry, went down tho
path to get a good start. In u moment
ho came Hying toward tho sergeant on a
dead gallop. Egan's horso pricked up
his ears, already scenting the work cut
out for it. As Baldwin came nearer
Egan's superb animal began to move
with gradually increasing speed until
the supposed runaway was alongside,
and then it ran neck and neck with
Reaching out, tho sergeant grasped
tho bridlo of Baldwin's horse, and his
own steed began to pull hack, coming
to a completo standstill within ten
yards. Several more trials were made,
the men taking turns at stoppiug each
other. "You see, they cannot get away
from vrs," said the sergeant, "us our
horses understand their business as woll
as tho nun. They never allow a run?
away to got past them. A stern chase
is often a long chase. Under the regu?
lations riders and drivers are allowed to
move only nt a certain speed within the
park. A runaway of course always ex?
ceeds this pace, and tho policeman's
horse detects tho rapid patter of hoofs
as quickly as ho does himself."?New
Lincoln'? Modest Fee.
M. D. Hardin, one of tho oldest Illi?
nois lawyers, tells of an instance where
Mr. Lincoln was retained to assist two
other lawyers in the conduct of a ease
of tho greatest importance. "I will not
say now what the case was," said Mr.
Hardin, "but it was ono of the greatest
moment to tho stato and of importance
to tho nation. The decision arrived at
grows nioro stupendous in its results
every day. Even at tho timo of its set?
tlement those connected with it knew it
meant a great deal, and the two men
who had been his colleagues consulted
together after tho trial as to tho amount
of tho fee to be charged. They decided
that ?5,000 was tho least they could
take and concluded to send their bill
for that amount. But they waited for
Mr. Lincoln and laid the ease beforo
him. They asked him what he thought
they ought to charge. He pondered over
tho matter for a time and finally said ho
thought his sharo ought to be about
$50. That was, ho thought, pretty good
pay, considering that he had only given
a little over a day to tho caso."?Chi?
Most men of weight dislike tho frail
gilt and satin chairs which accidentally
fall to their lot in a crowded drawing
room. They wero in uso in Mr. Web?
ster's time. At an evening reception
given to some western lawyers, soon
after the accession of President Tyler
and the dissolution of President Harri?
son's cabinet, Mr. Stanberry, late attor?
ney general, was accompanied by his
bashful friend, Mr. Leonard, who im?
mediately' retired to a corner and select?
ed this gilded trifle as a resting place.
In order to withdraw still farther from
notice, ho tilted the frail structure back?
ward. Down it wont, smashed into a
dozen pieces, and Leonard, the embar?
rassed, was Leonard the observed by all.
Mr. Webster immediately rushed to
tho rescue of his unfortunate guest and
raised him from the floor with tho reas?
suring remark, "Why, my dear Mr.
Leonard, you should havo remembered
that no cabinet work would hold to?
A Society Kvent.
"Yes," observed the master of cere?
monies, "yon weep to the jury beauti?
