young men who first made as though
they would throw him Into tho creek.
A number of friendly neighbors here In?
terposed and saved the young evangelist

and friends had to give her close at?
tention through the entire night. She

WAS A PHILOSOPHER.
A BEGGAR STUDENT OF HUMAN NA?
TURE WHO HAD A SYSTEM.
Mendicancy Carried Out Upon Practical
Lines?Why lie Avoided the Rich?Stood
Outside n Restaurant, but Never Begged
From a Hungry Looking Man.
Ho was a wretched looking chap, so
thinly clad that he was really an object
of pity. He hart sought a secluded cor?
ner at tho entrance of a cheap restaurant
near Herald .square, nnrt for awhile it
seemed as if ho had chosen tho spot
merely to escape the chilling blasts of
tho cutting wind. Many men passed
iuto tho place, but ho spoke to liouo.
Finally 0110 who hart just completed his
meal came forth. Tho man started for?
ward, hesitated a moment and then re?
sumed his former position. Soon another
man, apparently in a great hurry, camo
from tho restaurant, buttoning his coat
as ho walked. In a moment tho poor
follow stood in tho way and barely had
ho uttered his request for help when ho
was rewarded with a dime.
A moment later a group of young
men in very high spirits passed into tho
restaurant. To an ordinary student thoy
would havo been just tho right men to
approach for alms, but tho beggar saw
them not. It was onlj' to certain men
returning to tho street that ho mado
himself known. It was but tho work of
a moment to pick an acquaintance with
tho follow, and when ho found I was
interested ho talked freely of his plan.
"I had to do a good deal of thinking
about it when I first started in, "ho
said. "I can't got work now, and when
I havo work I can only keep at it for n,
littlo while on account of rheumatism.
When I saw I hart to bog, I thought I
might as well do it right or not at all.
If you know anything about moo's faces
and clothes, you don't have to do any
guesswork at all. I can tell long beforo
I got near a man what my chances nro
with him, and if I don't think that it's
ten to ono I will got something I don't
try him, for there's no good in wearing
yourself out and gotting common. Some
fellows go along tho street and try to
touch every w?tll dressed man they meet.
They couldn't do anything worse, for
overybody sees what they'ro doing and
knows they are professionals and steers
clear of them. Tho only time to fm up
against well dressed men as a straight
tiling, without regard to thoir faces, is
when they aro full and feeling happy
"Tho avorago well rtrossert man or
woman is tho harrtest kind of a person
to hit. Thoy do lots for charity, but it's
in a different way?societies, schools
for kids, kindergartens nnrt missions?
and th?y think they aro doing enough.
If any one hits thorn on tho street, they
put them down for a professional. You
havo got to judge tho well dressed peo
plo by thoir laces and general manner
and lot thoir clothes count for nothing.
"Whenever I havo to do any street
work, I always solcct tho people of tho
lower middle classes, who don't put on
any front?women especially. I mean
peoplo who live comfortably, but haven't
got any too much money to spare. Say,
you may think I'm stringing you, but I
Would rather havo ono nickel from ono
of thorn than a quarter from a fellow
who conld stand it, and had it to burn.
Funny, but 1 feel just as sentimental
about that BOmotimos as if I was earn?
ing it, and I would earn it if I had tho
"Now, yon toko this stand of mi no
? it-xu .<>..<?v. lUKl'ti S inrC(! 111C11 WllO gaVO
mo somothiiig?two nickels and a dime.
I havo been hero half an hour and I've
only struck five men. I missed two.
Well, thruo oat of livo don't look like
bad guesswork, if you want to call it
bo, doos it? This is tho chcapost res?
taurant in tho neighborhood. There's
tho Imperial, Marlborough and all tho
other big hotel restaurants I could
havo taken, but I'll bet I wouldn't havo
got a thing from tho peoplo who cnmo
from any of thoin. Tho men who go in
hero don't pay over 25 or 30 cents for
what they eat, and I'm willing to tako
my chances with them right along.
"I nlways wait till a man comes out.
Soiuo peoplo think it ought to bo tho
other way, for tho reason that a man
who was hungry would bo moro apt to
givo out of sympathy for tho nmu who
was hitting him for mouoy for some?
thing to eat But I didn't figuro it out
that way. You see, these aro protty
hard times, and there's moro people in
hard luck than there ovor was beforo.
Now, it's bad euongii to bo in hard
lnck, but it's worso yet to bo hungry,
and when a man is up against both
games littlo things will bothor him that
wouldn't affoct him at all if ho had Iiis
stomach full. I reason that protty near?
ly ovcry man who comes in hero is eith?
er in hard luck or elso ho is a miser
who don't want to spond unymoro than
is actually necessary. If it wasn't so,
you know they would nil go to tho big
restaurants in the hotels, for you know
ns well as I do that tho right kind of a
man likes good things to eat and nico
clean service if ho can afford it.
"Well, lam onto tho misers, and I
leave thorn nlono. When tho decent
man comes cut, ho feels better for hav?
ing had Iiis dinner. IIo is ready for
business, and lifo is a groat deal bright?
er to him than it was half an hour bo
foro. I ask him to help mo. Ho says to
himself: 'Well, I feel protty good. This
fellow is in worso luck than I am. I
kuow what it is to foul hungry. I won't
miss tho nickel very much,' nnd then I
got it. When ho hands it tome, ho fools
bettor for it, and ho looks it, too, nud if
ho has boon doing things that aro not
qnito up to tho limit ho consoles him?
self with tho fact that he ain't such a
bad fellow after all. Aud he ain't eith?
er. So yon see thero's two of us happy,
and if thero was moro of it tho world
would bo happier. Thanks, boss."
Then tho philosophor went in to din

Anotbor story illustrative of tho daily
lifo of a Chicago millionaire may help
to explain why some peoplo havo moro
money than others.
This millionaire invited a visitor
from another city to meet him nt a cer?
tain hour and accompany him to tho
stockyards, whoroho has largo interests.
Tho millionaire rode up in a .sidebar
bnggy somewhat tho worso for mud niul
wear, drawn by a shaggy but native
horso. IIo explained that beforo starting
for tho yards ho would havo to go to ono
of tho largo banks down town, as ho
was on tho board which regulated loans,
and ho had to pass on an application
for a loan of $000,000.
They stopped in front of tho bank,
and tho rich man hurried in and re?
mained sovoral minutes. lie onmo nut
on a run, and thoy started rattlody bang
for the stockyards and Pnckingtowu.
When they arrived ami wore entering
tho packing house, they saw an old man
sorting out into barrels a heap of bones
and fatty remnants. Tho bones wore
trimmed and put Into ono barrel and
tho flesh, anil fat into nno.ther barrel.
