A Millionaire Mistaken for a
Tramp.
[Chicago Inter-Ocean'.]
Cornelius H, Yanderbilt wdstlie
victim of a ludicrous case of mis
taken identity yesterday at the
Tremont House. Two weeks ago
a young man entered Cameron,
Amberg & Co.'s store, on Lake
street, and asked for the proprie
tor. He was introduced to Mr.
Cameron, to whom he told a piti
ful story of poverty, and his desire
to earn an honest living. Mr. Cam
eron said he wanted no more help,
whereupon the young man suggest
ed that if he would give him credit
for a quantity of indellible pencils
he would pay for them as lie sold
them. He was given the pencils,
but Mr. Cameron never saw him
again. Yesterday afternoon, while
in the Tremont House, Mr, Came
ron met the young man ip the rp
tunda. He was finely dressed,
and sauntered about the hotel non
ehalantly and as tiio'uglt lie oWued
the earth. This galled Mr. Came
ron, and, tapping the young man
on the shoulder, he said, "Don't
yon think it is about time yqu paid
for those pencils?"
"What's that, sir?" ,
"Those pencils." ,
"I owe you for no pencils. 1
don't know who yon arc."
Then followed some positive re
marks on poverty-stricken young
men and comtemptible swindling,
and both, had some spirited re
marks. It culminated in the young
man calling in "General-," and
lia viug himself identified. When
Mr. Cameron found that he was
accusing a millionaire Vanderbilt
of a petty swindle bis apologies
were of course in good order,
the Young Man and Ills Cigarette.
[I'hihulelphin Times.]
Like a midnight apparition which
cannot be shakeu off, the cigarette
consumed young man haunts one
daily in the streets and nightly in
the theatres and saloons. His sal
low countenance, . betokening the
,
H/ll HJUlltCHlHIGV). Pjuiuavlliuu î
signs of approaching dissolution, !
appears ever and anon between
thé masses of death-laden smoke !
which arise and are .wafted into
the faces of healthy pedestrians,
causing sensations of a sickly na
ture. The smile with which he
greets you is only an alleged smile, |
his equally hollow words grates 1
on the air and „takes one think 0 f ;
(he way a skull might talk if skulls I
were gifted with speech. His walk
i
is a totter, his breath savors of the
charnel-house and his eye? wear a
pitiful, painful, idiotie look.
The cigarette-consumed young
man, desJL the perils surround- j
ing him, is on the increase. Jt is
smart be a cigarette-oo,teamed i
youth. It is deemed the height of !
u,unlit, es# to waste ambition and
such smoke. The cigarette-con
sumed young 'man thinks he is at
tractive and supposes that the
small parcel of braius which has
escaped the influence of nicotine
fiu-iiishes the world's thought—at
least the superficial, unreal world
in which he moves. He thinks
uipthcf will pet bint ajl the more,
sisters humor him, and alUbe girls
adore him because he is cigarette
consumed.
'Ll« rising generation promises
to be largely composed of cigar*
etta-consumed young men unless
stringent measures are taken to
counteract existing tendencies. It
were better that Mother Bhipton
had been yigbt ör that the sun
hurry up and reach the earth tb»n
that such a result transpire. It,
would be vaatly better for the
young man to be sun-consumed in
stead of cigarette-consumed. The
cigarette-consumed young man is
a bore and tbe world 1» tired of
seeing him around.
