Experience In “Tito States’-The
l’resent C*e In London Town.
f r .. m the Philadelphia Record.
LONDON. AUrcii 19.—Tue craza for
everything Americau has broken out in
lull force all over staid old Loudon town.
Probably the approaching exhibition
luay bave a little to do with it. Walking
down Piccadilly yesterday 1 bethought
me of several articles in the fancy grocer
ies line which were getting low down in
my domestic larder. So 1 strayed into
my favorite shop, a shop of foreign ware
housemen, who keep asupplv of all sorts
and conditions of American goods. In
deed I’ve suggested to the firm many arti
cles they never would have dreamed of
getting, suoh as real American oysters,
prime in quality and brought over In fast
steamers. For, be not deceived, my
Philadelphia friends, the English oysters
, re delusions and coppery snares, even if
they he the celebrated expensive “Whit
stable natives,” whatever be tholr claim
to be eaten by the oyster epicure.
Looking about the shop my attention
was arrested by the ultra swell voice of
an ultra swell Englishman. The unde
fined journalistic sense of something
riob about to develop itself oaused me io
retreat out of immediate view among the
barrels and boxes, and to say in a low
tone to the clerk* “1 am in no hurry;
please lot me listen.” They all know
me and are used to my putting down
wbat Ido as another American “eccen
tricity.” Therefore the clerk mado no
comment, ouly bringing me a high stool to
tit upon. By this time the swell (whom
lor convenience sake, and since 1 don’t
know his name, we will call “Lord
Slapdash”) was well launched out in his
ordering ot supplies. Listening to this
Rud thinking much about it meanwhile.
I’ve concluded that I could not do better
than to tell uiy friends all about it, for it
is a droll adventure and one fraught
with a deal of meaning to the reflaotive
American. .
“Pve been to the States, donefierknow,”
said Slapdash.
The clerk bowed, and in an interroga
tive wav remarked:
“Ytsf”
The Lord in question was anew cus
tomer, so what could be said with more
appropriateness?
“Ya-as, by Jove, I have, donoherknow.
1 went to take a six weeks outing, and
got there when they ware eating oorn—
t mean maice—on the oob, and all that
sort of thing.”
“Precisely,” put in the olerk.
“Well.it is a most extraordinary sight;
they eat it boiled—l mean the ooyn—and
put butter on it, and salt and pepper,
served out of individual cruets. ’Pon
ion, really. 1' looks strange to see the
people moving each side, this way and
that, obe wing corn. At first it turned me
quite faint, it looked so much like coun
try bumpkins, away off in Somerset
shire, at a Michaelmas fair, doncher
tnow. But there was an awfully jolly
girl at the inn (I put up at the Continen
tal in Philadelphia first of all, City of
Brotherly Love, and all that sort of
thing), and 1 got feartui spoons on her
before 1 knew who she was, or if she had
any birth, you know. Well, I saw her
bard at this oorn, and her hands and
arras were ‘lovely,’ as they say in the
States. You see I’ve got vbe American
dialect already, donoherknow. Well, 1
made up my mind to have ‘a go’ at that
extraordinary corn, so 1 watched the
young lady, and 1 got on beautifully.
Then the peaches came next in season.
And they were extraordinary as well.
I’ve paid hail a crown for a peach in
Regent street, but in the States you get, I
should say, two pounds of peaches for a
shilling, or one ana sixpence. After the
peaches came the oysters. My word!
the Americans know an oyster when they
see it. So 1 made up my mind to stop a
year on the other side, to get al! the Yan
kee things in their aeasou. I’ve been
everywuere in the States. Went away
down in Louisiana to get ‘peck-kan’ nuts
fresh. (Let me parenthetically remark
that despite young Lord (Slupdasb’s pro
nunciation. he alluded to our ordinary
American peoan nut.) Ya-as, peck-kan*
and peauuts. But i like peanuts best on
•Broadway. They sell them in New Yoik
on Broadway fresh roasted. 1 used to
buy a big paper full of them and eat them
when I got back to my chambers in the
Brevoort, another good inu.”
.. “Yes, we have peanuts,” observed the
clerk.
"Have you, really,” answered my
Lord.
On which the peanuts, unroasted, were
produced; alto samples of them roasted,
•belled and put up in bottles. The pecan
nuts were shown as well. These latter my
Lord ordered a large quantity of for a
prospective dinner party. But he drew
the hue at peanuts.
“Yousee,he explained, “they taste so
different when they’re hot. Now, couldn’t
pon roast them to order? Tney have in
the States a large iron machine that
turns around with coals under it, and
turns the peanuts out every hour, don
cherkuow.”
“Well,” suggested the clerk, “we
toasted some at Christmas In our coffee
roaster for Alice Atherton's ( Mrs. Willie
Ldouin’s) children’s party, and they
toasted beautifully.'’
ejaculated his Lordship;
the cotlee roaster! never! Why it would
take all that delicious fragrance away, a
iragrancequite oriental.”
Ob! bow I laughed to myseir behind
‘“tuning barrels. To think that I
nouia live to hear the peculiar odor oi
underbred peanut denominated as
bilftv la by a member ° r lhe British no
continued, “there is no wav

ing that dignified old name as second
class.
“Ah.nol” he regretfully said, “Huy
ler is the one. I took five pounds oi
candy on tbe steamer, all molasses."
Lacking candy, he ordered a dozen bot
tles of America maple syrup.
“For flap.jacks, donenerknow,” he ex
plained; “sucli amusing people In the
states,* keep up old Indian names.
Tnough really they are quite civilized
everywhere. They are, ’pou honor.”
“Yes,” said tbe clerk, looking over
slyly in my direction, “the Americans are
a treat people.”
Finally, when something liks£2owoiTk
was ordered, my Lord Slapdash made
out his check. He was quite “chummy”
with the clerk. “Americau manners,” I
presume, imbibed in “tbe States.” and on
leaving he presented tbe young man with
a cigar. Such a piece of oondesoeusion
would never have boon shown save iroin
the effect of good fellowship engendered
in the Amerloan atmosphere and a sort
of pride In bis possession of a case of the
American weed to boot.
After bis departure 1 had a good laugh
with the clerk. He tells me that this
craze Is spreading, and nothing will sur
prise him.
“No,” he added, merrilv, “not even will
I be surprised to ses tbe’Q. O. M.’ Glad
stone chewing spruce gem and munoblng
peanuts (when we get to roasting them
every hour) while he is chopping down a
tree before breakfast of a cold, frosty
morning.”
Leaving the shop I wandered about foi
au hour, looking idly in the windows of
tbe big drapers and haberdashers.
“American wooleus” was on a sign in
one of the windows. This was very like
bringing ooals to Newcastle, slnoe tne
Scotch woolen fabrics are absurdly
cheap here. American sewing maobines
and American “caLooes,” which latter is
the name given in England to white cot
ton goods for use in making up ladles’un
dergarments. in short, to be in tbe lat
est London fashion one must bo quite
American, “donoherknow.” Eveu if one
devote au evening to seeing Italian opera
at Covent Garden theatre, It will be
found tbal Mr. Mapleson flourishes Amer
ican prima donnas in one’s ears.
The Queen likes Americans, and, If she
does, theu why not the lowest subject of
her majesty? It is a lhosc excellent
thing this mania, especially In the matter
of food. AV ith tne coming exhibition will
be seen Amerioan goods, cooking, gar
ments and customs galore. All sorts of
outlandish doiugs are now laid to Ameri
ca's door; so. when the exhibition be
gins, I dare say we shall be American
ized to death.
At drawing rooms the prettiest girls
that are presented to the Queen are
Americans. Indeed, there is a joking
tradition that the American Minister
keeps a standing feminino army always
on hand at his embassy quarters. These
fair ladies waie pretty gowns and are
full of Ohio and coquetry. They don’tall
behave quite well, I am afraid, at all
times. Indeed, they seem often to de
light while in England in conduct they
would blush over at borne in their mother
country, and to revel in being loud and
unfemimhe when they should be soit and
gentle in voice and manners. But, thank
heaven! these are exceptional cases, not
the general rule; for, take it all in all,
Columbia’s best bred daughters in no way
make the judicious sojourners in London
town ashamed of fellow-Americans or oi
the American craze.

MICHAEL BOOTY’S WOOING.
A Prose Sketch for a Poem by the
Late Dante G. Kossettt.
From the Athenaam.
Here ie the prose sketch found by the
editor iu those neat manuscript books
which are objeots of affectionate rever
ence to all who enjoyed the high privilege
of Rossetti’s friendship:
“Miohael Scott and a friend, both
young and dissolute, are returning from
a carouse, by moonlight, along a wild
seacoast during a ground-swell. As they
come within view of a small house on
tho rocky shore, his companion taunts
Michael Scott as to his known passion for
tbe maiden Janet who dwells there wltn
ber father, and as to tbe failure of the
snares he has laid for her. Scott is goad
ed to great irritation, and as they near
the point of the sands overlooked by the
cottage be turns round on his friend and
declares that tbe maiden shall come out
to bim then and there at his summons.
The friend still taunts and haulers him,
saying that wine has heated bis brain;
but Scott stands quite still, muttering,
and regarding the oottago with a gesture
of command.
“After be has done so for some time,
the door opens softly, and Janet comes
running down the rock. As she ap
proaches, she nearly rushes into
Michael Scott’s arms, but instead
swerves aside, runs swiftly by him, and
pluuges into the surging waves. With a
shriek Michael plunges alter her, and
strikes out this side and that, and lashes
bis way among the billows between tne
rising and slaking breakers; but ail in
vain—no siga appears of her. Arter
some time spent in this way he returns
almost exhausted to tbe sauda, and pass
ing without answer by his appalled and
questioning friend, h climbs the rook to
tbe door of the bottage, which is now
closed.
“Janet’s father answers his loud
knocking, and to him be says:
“•Play me. for your daughter has
drowned herself this hour in yonder sea,
and by my means.’
“The fatner at first suspeots some
stratagem, but finally deems him mad,
and says:
“•You rave—my daughter is at rest in
her bed.’
“ ’Go seek her there,’ answer Mtobaal
Scott.
“The father goee up to his daughter’s
chamber, and returning very pale, signs
to Michael to follow him. Together they
climb the stair, and find Janet
balf lying and balf kneeling, turned vio
lently around, as If, in the act oi rising
Irem her bed, she had again thrown her
self backward and clasped tbe feet or a
crucifix at her bed-head; soshe lies dead.
Michael ocottrushe* from the houso, and
returning maddened to the seashore, is
wlib difficulty restrained from suicide by
bis friend. At last he stands like u stone
for a while, and then, as If repeating an
inner whisper, be describes the maiden’s
iaet struggle with her heart. He says
bow she loved him, but would not sin;
how, hearing In her sleep bis appeal
from the shore, she almost yielded,
and tbe embodied image of her longing
oame rushing out to him; but bow in the
last. Instant she turned buok lor refuge to
Christ, and ber soul was wrung from her
by the struggle of ber heart.
“ ‘And as 1 speak,' he save, ‘the fiend
who whispers this concerning ber says
aiso in my ear how surely 1 am lost.’ ”

MAINE’S BIGGKi-T t CHCONKU.
Launching a Mammoth Vessel —The
Second Largest oi Her Class.
Banook, March 29 A few years ago,
when the first three-masted schooners of
from 500 to 800 tons were built in Maine,
the old-time masters and builders, used
to fore-and-afters of only 200 or 300 tons,
shook their heads disparagingly and de
clared thin people were going ornzy, aad
vtUhu ibeu vessels were followoil later by
four-masters ol 1,000 tons and upward,
they ridiculed both ressel and lankier.
Now, wnen a fbur-mnied schooner of
nearly 1,000 tons has been launched, the
ancient mariners are lost In amazement,
and are asking eaou other where inis sort
ol thing will end, arid what will be tne
limit of size.
There was launched at Hath a few days
ago tho largest schooner-rigged sailing
vassal but one afloat. She is the T. A.
Lambert, 227 feet touuage length, R> feet
beam. 22.1 feet hold and 1,588.31 net tons.
She has a tremendously heavy frame and
is fastened ns heavy as a whaler. Her
lower masts are each 112 feet long, and
ber spar* in proportion, so tliut one may
readily Imagine the amount of sail sue
can spread. She is estimated to have a
carrying capacity ot 2,900 tons, so that
with any decent sort ot business and dis
patch ber freight money for a season in
the coal, Ice and hard pine trade must
figure up something handsome.
Here is a sohooner larger than the ma
jority ol ships and burks, and with greater
proportionate carrying capacity than the
square riggers, which, on account of her
simple rig, requires but half the crew of
the latter, and much less expenditure for
sails and rigging, and svhioii, if the coast
ing or West India business is dull, can
go into deep water trades, us did lhe
four-master llaroldine, built at North
Weymouth, Mass., a few years ago. The
crew of such a vessel are relieved of the
heavier drudgery by a steam engine
placed forward, and their forecastle is
generally a parlor compared with those
of small craft.
The exigencies of the times have called
tue monstersohoono'-Binto existence, and
they bave come to st,uy. They are cheap
ly built, economically sailed, great car
riers, and last saiiers. so their popularity
is not to be wondered at. Quite a num
ber of schooners ranging from 600 tons
upward are now being constructed in
Alains yards, and preparations are being
made for tne buildiug, at Camden, of a
tour-master of twelve to thirteen hundred
tons, modeled something alter tue King
Philip, iauneued at that place last fall.
Kreicuts may be low and business dull,
but Jlalne is a State of sailors and build
ers, and if they can’t get a living in ordi
nary sized craft they are bound to do it
in big iellotvs, which can carry as much
at one trip as a wnoie “mosquito fleet.”
As to tbe limit of size, as ships bave
increased from 300 tons in the early davs
to 3,000 tons to-day without exciting anv
great wonder, nobody need be surprised
to see the old coasting schooner of 200
tons succeeded in tha near future by a
five-master of 2,000 tons.
Some uewspapers have reported the T.
A. Lambert to be the largest sohooner
afloat. This is a mistake. The largest
vessel of this c!as is the five-inaster
Golden Age, 1,763 tons, built at Bride’s
Bridge, Ohio, some years ago. Tbe Lam
bert ranks next.
BALKING LIKE A DOG.
Nothing; to Bock Up this One Sym
tom of Hydrophobia.
From the Peneacola (Fla.) Commercial .
Tuesday afternoon a number of people
of all colors flocked to a little house on
Barcelona street, a few doors north of
Government, in whioh reside a colored
woman, Bella Woodson and her 10-year
old daughter Cordelia. As reports from
that locality became more widely scat
tered over the city, callers became more
numerous, and at 6 o’clock p. m , when a
reporter repaired to the ss>ot
there was a large orowd of people in tho
street in tront of the bouse discussing the
wonderful oase within. A policeman
stood at tho door and refused admit
tance to everybody but the reporter,
who stepped inside and found Dr. W. K
Fordbam bending over a bed wbio h stood
in one corner of the apartment, upon
which lay the girl aforementioned.
Hound about were several women, among
them the mother, and two or three men,
one of whom was the mother’s father. The
report which had been circulated on the
streets was to the effect, that a case of hy
dropbobia had developed in this house, but
that tbe victim, a 10-year-old colored girl,
was exhibiting but oue symptom of"the
dreaded disease, whining, growling and
barking like a dog. The reporter had not.
been In the room three minutes when
from the bed came several rapidly deliv
ered, most perfect barks, aud, but for tbo
fact that be was watching the girl, and
saw ber as she gave utterance to them,
be could scarcely have been convinced
that there was not a dog in the room, so
perteot an imitation of a canine bark
were they.
These barks were delivered at inter,
vals of about ten minutes. To tbe doc
dor’s queries it was positively asserted
that the child had never been bitten,
neither liad either of the parents, by dog,
oat, wolf or anything else. The ohild
was perfectly rational, had not the slight
est fever, and felt no pain in any part of
her body. Sue expressed a sense of
shame at the barking she was forced to
do.
To the reporter, tbe mother, when
asked how long the child bad been in this
condition, said that twenty-thrae days
ago the child was taken with a kind of
spasmodic jerking at the stomach, not
exaotiy convulsions, and yesterday
morning she tainted. Recovering from
toe tainting tit she began barking like a
dog, and felt so keenly her position that
she remarked to her mother that It would
never do to Uavo the neighbors knuw ol
her condition. Dr. Fordbam was then
called in.
The reporter and (he doctor left the
house together, tue latter having pre
scribed a nervine. To the query by the
reporter as to tho nnture of tbe case, Dr.
Eordbsm frankly admitted that lie had
never in his experience seen or heard of
anything like it. He had not yet con
cluded his diagnosis, and he would on tbe
morrow invite other physicians to
accompany biin when bo visited lhe pa
tient.
To-day at 12 o’clock Dr*. Fordbam.
Herron aud Ksnsbaw, accompanied by
the reporter, repaired to the house and
found the patient doing somewhat holier,
the barking, which was still being contin
ued, being less in volume and delivered
at greater intervals. The cnild slept
well during the night and barsed none,
but, on awaking this morniug, resumed
the delivery of the strange sounds.
The two visiting physicians expressed
themselves to un effect similar to the an
swer of Dr. Fordbam to tbe reporter—they
had never beard of or seen anything like
It In their experience. All, however, were
inclined to believs it a nervous affection,
and soouted tbe idea tliut it might be hy
drophobia. Dr. Fordbam eaid subse
quently to the reporter that, in bin opin
ion, the oaee resulted from an Inflamma
tion of tbe nerve centres, which bad pos
sibly been Induced by a precocious devel
opment. Lie had not, however, concluded
me diagnosis, and would not say anything
positively in this connection.
Borne of the colored people living in tbe
vicinity of tbe houae where tbo patient
reside* are ooufldeut that the obiid is the
viotim ol avnudoo doctor, and no amount
of per*ua*ion oan Induce them to change
this tuperatitioua belief.

BETTING BY THE CLOCK.
The Fluctuations of Mysterious
blocks Automatically llegistered.
Prom the Nr to York Stir .
Perhaps of all the methods ever invented
by ingenious gamblers to coax from, tho
pockets of tho “lambs” their weekly stl
ponds or the onsh they cun nog, borrow or
embezzle, the most insidious is that
which is to be found at No. 60 Broad
street. A reporter ior tho Star yesterday
visited the establishment, which is pre
sided over by Campbell & Cos., and found
there all sorts of devotees of fortune, iroui
the full-fledged member ot the Stock Ex
change and the scalper ot the New York
Produce Exchange to the curbstone
broker. Two sets of quotations are oil
tbe boards. Upon one is recorded the ao
tuai transactions ot the Stock Exchange
as transmitted by the “bucket shop
ywire,” and these quotations are correct,
although surreptitiously obtained. Upon
the other board is recorded tho various
fluctuation*, which are made by a purely
mechanical contrivance, on certain al
leged raining stocks supposed to be con
trolled by the oompany who owns the
Iranohise of the apparatus which auto
matically makes tne quotations. Tue
proprietors, of course, disclaim any iu
teniion to transgress tbe laws against
gambling, but even the most casual in
vestigation by any one versed in games
of chaiioe will be sufficient to convince
him that it is a game ot ebanoe.
Said Air. Gampboll to a reporter: “1
patented this apparatus several years ago
lu Chicago, and opened an office under
the regular Board or Trade in that city.
Many of the brokers there investigated
mv way ol dolti; business, aud were sat
isfied to trade with me eveu during the
business hours of the regular board.
Now. there’s a man—po.ntmg to a gentle
man who had just entered the office—who
did the first trade on the clockwork board
in Chicago. He had been unfortunate
among his associates of the legitimate
and came to my place to make up h:s
losses. He was succbsslul and went back
to tlie board, although not as a member,
and was able to do a good business. He
made a good deal of money out ot us. I
was surprised to see him hero.”
inquiry of the gentleman referred to
corroborated thesa statements, but also
set forth the fact that he had continued
hi* speculations until be was willinir to
come to New York aud take a salaried
position.
The operations of the clockwork quota
tion apparatus is entirely and absolutely
automative, it consist* of a dial which
at hall-minute intervals records first tne
advance of some certain stock, and below
that the decline of the same or another
stock. These shares are lettered F. M.
G-, M. M. G., H. M. C., T. AL C. and P.
M. C., supposed, according to the bulle
tin conspicuous in the office of Messrs.
Campbell At Cos., to represent tbe stocks
of the Fenetla Mining Company, tho filer
chants’ anu Manufacturing Company, the
Hettie Mining Company and the Ferro
Mining Company, the control of wnicb,
Mr. Campbell claims, has oeeu obtained
by his company for $21,000. Wbat is
done with the other mining companies on
the list of the corporation is not given
out.
To a reporter for the Star Mr. Camp
bell said yesterday: “Our methods are
perfectly legal. We bave had here
filcesrs. Anthony Comstuoa and Inspector
Byrnes, besides various member* of tbe
Stock Exchange. They have invariably
attested their belief in the fairness of our
dealings, and one prominent stock broker
said to-day he would be glad to call upon
us again.”
filr. Campbell added: “Of course there
are times when the whole of our list will
move in one direction—that is, the clock
will go against us, and the sums we then
pay out are something enormous, but
tney generally—in lact, inevitably—come
back, and we reap not only the profits of
the transactions, but the commission of
per cent., which pays our expenses
and more.”
The ingenious apparatus which reoords
th-se quotations was patented by Air.
Campbell on May 4, 1886, and give* to the
inventor the right to make, vend or
otherwise use the tickers and quotations
of the company or party lurnishing the
quotations. Tbe Instrument eu change
the quotations only by automatic process,
in illustrating this Air, Campbell, stood
by tbe machine and gave out theebangea,
which, on examination by the Star re
porter, were proven to depend entirely on
onanoe.
Replying to the question a* to how be
hoped to evade the law on gambling, Air.
Campbell said:
“1 have here acertaln number of stocks
which 1 propose to sell at the price
marked hy my indicator, and will take It
back at the same price. The stock men
tioned represents the shares of regularly
organized mining companies, (or the con
trol of wbioh i paid $20,000. I would like'
to see any one force me out of the privi

MAKING UOOVt FOR DEMO
CRATS.
How Republican Office-Holders arc
Being Weeded Ont.
From Waehinytun Letter It the Baltimore
American.
A Democrat io Congressman, who keeps
himself pretty well posted on national
politic*, remarked to-day, while ut the
Treasury Department, that there is now
very little ground far Democrats to com
plain that Republican officials are not
being turned out of the government ser
vice fast enough. He says he has given
the subject.considerable attention, and bo
finds that nearly all of the Uepubl loan
postmaster* have been replaced hy Demo
crats, and the same can be said of col
lectors of customs, collectors of internal
revenue and tboir subordinates aud ol
nearly all ot tbu other braucues of the
public service. He predicts that, before
tbe next Tresidentiul election roils
around there will hardly he a Republican
in any important government position
except iu the departments at Washing
ton, and they cun be of little or no assist
ance to their party, us their superior
officers can prevent thorn from taking au
active part in politics by simply saying
wnen they request to go borne to vote
that their services cannot be spared from
the office at tout time, iie also takes a
very cheerful end bopeiul view of tbe
political situation from his party siaud
point. Be says the creation ottho Inter
state CommerocCommlssion will fie'of In
estimable value to the Democratic party
in the next campaign, as H will have the
administration behind it, and therefore
exert a powertullnfluence over the rail
road corporation* whloh bave heretofore
be j n the b*eC of supply for the Republi
cans In national elections. So tong us the
wsrt in power ifie railroads
w*r* willlaii to help them, but. now that
they find tti* Democrnt* artr in control of
affair* there is n > necessity for them to
ooßtribut* so liberally to the Republican
campaign fund.
