Something About Gail Hamilton
and Other AYotu n.
New Y'ORK, Jan. 1. —Gail Hamilton’s
emergence into the tield of metropolitan
journalism, alter a long begira to tli
provinces, recalls some curious memories
ol this gifted controversialist’s past.
When she took to her now famous uoin
de plume it was with the idea that her s x
and her Identity as a woman, and plain
Abigail Dodge. ol Hamilton, .Muss., would
bo impenetrably masked for all time.
She scorned all tera -nine weaknesses and
wished to pass in bei writings for a man.
Her intimate frieuds among women
frequently suffered from her unbending
prejudices. Ouee, Elizabeth Stuart
Phelps, who lives in Andover, in Gail's
own Slate, whs cold ally invited to make
this redoubtable woman a visit. The
famed spinster of “Gates Ajar”
celebrity had for her alter eg
at that time a faithful setter (log
to w hom she was devoted. “I will c one
to Hamilton next week wiih my dog
Ralph,*’ wrote Miss Phelps.
“You will come without aov nnnsens'*,
and by yourself,” wrote back the ob
jective tiail. Miss Pnclps stayed away
with her dog, and Hamilton Oas never
known Oer since. But Gail, with all her
silk stocking migbtine-s, had her soft
-pots; and, about torn time, she hail what
may he called a psychological affinity for
a young Bostonian something like twenty
years her junior. Tins young gentleman
was known in Boston as a somewhat ore
coco us JHeralor, ami posed in his lav
as the Archibald Grosvenor of the time.
With bis aMtt etic “laris,” b’S pat verses
to Oider aid his twenty maidens. Gail
oad never s eo any tuing like this before,
and (irosveoor was made very welcome
at (ha old bouse at Hamilton, to the dis
may „eu.l mortification ol Gail’s good
neigbbois. It was about this time, too,
that Gail had her famous quarrel with
James F. Field*. She claimed that he
ami Oszood had tricked herouto' her just
dues in copyrights, and she got righteous
judgment from ref rees at the time. So,
woeu Grosvenor was enthroned,
she actually turned the portrait
of the author publisher. Fields,
face to the wall and hu ig up the new god
in a conspicuous place! The twain Oad
such teie-a-letes and symposia as staid
Hamilton had never seen before, and
once when the gallant caval er slaved too
late, and fell down a flight ol steps in ihe
darkness, hurrying for the last train,
there was a scene at the old hoiues'ead
that basuever yet been and never will be
recorded in any ot Gail’s published
annals.
No one who estimates Gall Hamilton
from her books can form any adequate
idea of her extraordinary charms as a
conversationalist and raconteur.
\V asliiiigton. perhaps, knows some
thing ol her surpassing social gilts; but.
save in the sacred shrine ot Oer o wn fire
side, they have never been disclosed in
full splendor. Culpepper.
BEGGING IN CHINA.
How a Philanthropist Helped an
Undeserving Mendicant.
A writer in toe Youth’s Companion
says that he well remembers < ne case
among ail the wretchedness and disease
found among the ho.:gar class of l’ekin
widen moved his pity, and which lor
months he regularly relieved. It was the
case of an old man, ragged aid shivering
with cold, who sat every dav by the street
side. He was not ball clothed, and thrust
out in trout oi hm were bis feet, which
had evidently been frozen, and wereNiter
allv rotting off.
One day Hie writer missed the old man
from his accustomed place, but, on Ins re
turn home trom bis usual walk, overlook
hhn. The oi l mail was trudging along
borne, and all slgua of frozen feet had dis
app a 'ei *
“VVny.j.’ said the writer, addressing
him, “how can you manage to walk with
ihose wretched Icet of jours?”
“Oh.” said ihe old man. “they are in my
bosom.”
Then, without anv h> eita’lon or sign
of ehara i. he thrust his Hand into his
bosom and pulled out a pair of socks paa
ded who O 'tton so as to re resent his leet
a-swol eu iut of shape. Toe socks w-re
made of cai vas, and so ae< u ately pain *
>d into the resemblance o' ieet, with toe
nails dropping off and th- flesii a mass ot
rottenness, that th-y had deeeiv<d the
writer in broad sun Ii ht a hundred lim.-s.
“Well,” said h ■ writ t, very m ich dis
li a- lute ’

cannot vou earn soiii-' honest
vi a i?”
To which 'he old man replied, as sim
ply and frankly as though his calling
mve -o quite hoots and prai-eworthv:
B*“Oh, yes, I’m a shoemaker. And 1 havo
beifi thinking about giving up this line of
nu-oness, for it don’t pay nearly as well

ga)-s now; and alter all, it’s pretty hard
work sitt'n,; thereon ihe ground all day
and snouting out: ‘Have pity!’ 1 believe
I’ll go back to mending slu es.”
In a day or iwo he appeared with his
kitot tooi and uts bench by ihe side of
the street quite near the writer’s resi
dence, aud there he m nded shoes lor
soffi ten years uut.i! his death, which oc
curred in toe winter of 1882.
