NSW VORK'8 LODGING HOUSES. j -. ... . People Wb Patronize Them and Oct Accommodations at Trill lug Hspeaae. 'Not long ago a roporter, curious to test tho truth of the old adage that "one-half the world knows not how the other half lives," mudo a tour of the cheap lodging houses, which almost, completely Hue Chatham street from the Brooklyn bridge to Eaht Houston street. As rulo tho cheapest cluss of tlicso lodging houses are i patronized by tramj who, during the 1 day, have lagged a nicker ,orj dune or w mio benevolently inclined person, and by inveterate drunkards who, having no homo to go to, have pledged Jwhatovcr article tho pawnbrokers would accept. In this class of lodging house U") usual charge is five cents. Haying .fakl Uio man in charge of tho packing 'case like office ono ti entitled to a ''bed, This "bed'' is thoboro floor of an Outrage ously Tontilated . room, usually( about twenty feet square, and no covering in provided. In this room are nigidly hud dled together anywhero from twonty-Ave to fifty men. The close atmosphere of the room, together with the breath of the sleojiers, renders tho air sickening hi tlie extreme. No attempt is made at cluanH ncM, and further, a man suffering with any contagious disease is as readily de ceived as one in perfect health.:, pnly a few months ago a man suffering wtfh smallpox was sjiotted in one of these holes by the police, and after much delay removed to a hospital. The entrain to . the lodging house is invariably through a narrow doorway off the street, and up a staircase, lighted only by a small orl lamp. Everywhere about tho ploc4 ver uiiu can be found. Rats and mice fairly overrun the place. It is the custom to turn out all lodgers at 0 a. m. for the avowed purpc ventilating the place, but ventilutic. impossible anlcss the vile building be fcra down. Tlie ten and fifteen cent housos are a little bettor than the "five centers," but not much. For ten cents one can get a cot bed in a small room with Several others. Sometimes a mattress and sheet are provided the lodger, .but of tener he gets no covering whatever. For-fifVen cents the lodger . gets a "private room," which is one of many. It is made by dividing a good sired room, by means of wooden partitions, into a numlcr of smidler rooms. In some of them one finds a chair as well as the cot. A weak etfort at cleanliness is mado here. In a fairly largo room near by soup, water and towels are furnkhed, and all are ex iected to avail themselves of their use. In this class of lodging Iiousch the patrons are awakened at 7 a. m., when a general cleaning up takes place and everything is put in readiness for the next nigfit'i lodgers. Tho next priced houses cost lodgers twenty-five or thirty-five cents a night, according to the accommodations. These houses are all that a reasonable jierson tn reduced circumstances can ex pect. For twenty-five cents one is frequently given a single room, but at some places the lodger is quartered with two or three other men, but in a separate bed. At tached to some of this class of houses are sitting rooms, where far in tho early morning hours groups of men sit ubout talking or reading. Some houses fur nish their patrons with a bath. The best clans of cheap lodging houses charge fifty cents per night ' These nre patronbeed cliiufly by jkiur uitxJituik'H unJ luUoihi men. Everything is done to make their jiatrons comfortable The daily papers are kept on file, and games of chess and checkers are permitted in tho reading room. The entrances are large and wide, lighted by gas, and kept as clean as tios siblo. Notwithstanding that every effort is made to keep these pluses well ven tilated, in the summer tho heat is intoler able. New York World. Tb "Cheatnnt" Idiot. There Is ono man on my list who never wrmkl be missed, and t hut's the man who shouta "chestnuts" every time a man tells a story, or even when he makes a quotation. In the first place the man who says "chostnuts" is generally a fel low who never tells a story himself, or, if ho does, it is something from a way back in tho twilight of fable. Now, sleeping is a chestnut, and so is eating and thinking, but they're good all the same. Shakspeare is a chestnut, and so is Dickens and Lytton, hut these fellows who yell it nt them don't do anything as good. The old things are good and sound; they've been tried. Tlie chestnut Idiot yells his favorite word even when a man tells something brand new, and in this displays an impertinence and a desire to bo considered ahead of his fellows, which are despicablo characteristics, and calcu lated to destroy all pleasure in social in tercourse.

A Virginia preacher who believes in prayer met a bear in tho woods the other day, and instead of putting his remedy into effect he jumped from a bluff Into Cheat river and swam half a mile. lie had never tried prayers for bear, and waa little afraid they'd skip a cog somewhere.

One of tho most allocking- tragedies Dullai hns vrA had was enacted at the west door of the court house this morning at 0:.'H), In which William 11. Jones took tho life ol hit wile. Eye witnesses lay that Mrs. Jones was standing near the stairway with her hack to her husband wno eatne in at the east door. Ho walked directly up to her and began to shoot without saying a word, he continued to udrance on her as she re treated screaming at the top of her voice, until she fell in the right corner of the hall near the west door. After she had fallen he ran up and shot her through the temple firing four shots three of which took clVecl and were either ef tiem fatal. .She was shot through the head, through the body and the wrist, aad died Instantly. Not ono word wa uttered during the shooting ex-, vept by the nnfortueate woman, who shrieked lor help. Deputy Sheriff Martin ran out of the sheriff's olllce and selzod lones,wlio was making his way out of the wst door, 'A straggle ensued la which a pistol shot wai llred by Jones some say at tho o Ulcer anil others think accidentally. The prisoner Is- jsfc In jail, where a re porter Iias just scn him. He de clines to make any- statement lor publication. "The fact are very well known outside," he aald. "This Is the tlrst time that any of my family have ever been In jail with blood on our hands." The verdict at the lmmoit Is In accordance With tha Iscis above set forth. : , - Headers will .remember tho South Dallns episode, in which Jones, Vanston and Mrs. Jones were lcildiug characters, and which resulted in tho Indictment ot scvotal ot the parties lor aggravated assault. It was charged that Yanidon and others were criminally Intimate with -Mrs. Joncn that aho came home Into at night after taking biigxy rldit with Yenston that Jones accused her of Infidelity and that Yanston knocked linn down, a general light occurring, In which Mrs. Junes ia said to have tsken a hand against her husband. These reports were general and a good deal published regard ing the matter. The caBes growing out of the all'alr were to come lip in county court and this brought about the first meeting ol Mr. and Mrs. Jones since the South Dallas escapade. Jones teamed that Yuuston and Leicester were on their way to the court house with his wife in a hack, lie heard repeatedly of her living with Yanston and of suspicious relatious between the parties. He went to court house doubtless expecting to meet the party together. He fouud the unfortunate woman only. It Is learned that Jone adTortlncd for a wile and that deceased was found ia that way. That sue sold hit horse and hus)' last summer, and that he sequestered the property and they separated then for a while. That ho has Ixea married before aud has a divorced wife living. That he is a highly nervous man and frequently acts at If he were crazy. That he has always been a peaceable mau. Lynch law was talked nf freely this morning, hut the lynchers were completely divided as te whom it would be fair to dls poso of. Ti'uile most of the lmmenso mul titude which gathered at the court bouse talked freely of killing the killer, many others expressed a willingness to aid in de stroying Mr. Yanston.

A I.essaiti from a Little llurefoot. Mr. Matthew Arnold was greatly struck by tills democrat in government of our reading room when hu was in Boston. Ro onme hi hern one day and saw a little bawfooted newsboy sitting in one of the bmt ckirtrsof the reading room, enjoying himself apparently for dear life. Th great eseaymt was completely astounded. "Do yon let barefooted boys in thia read ing rooinf" ho asked. "You would never see such a sight as that in Europe. I do not bulieve there is a reading room In all Europe in which that boy, dressed as b,e is, would enter. ' ' Then Mr. Arnold went over to the boy, engaged him in conversation, and found that ho was reading tlie "Lifo of Washington," and that he was a young gentleman of de cidedly anti-British tendencies, and, for his age, remarkably well informed. Mr. Arnold remained talking with the youngster for some time, and as he came ixick to Our desk tho great Englishman said: "I do not think I have been so ' impressed with anything else that I have seen since arriving in this country as I am now with meeting this barefooted boy in this reading room. What a tribute to democratic institutions it is to say that instead of sending that boy out to wan der alone in the streets, they permit him to come in here and excite his youtlif ul imagination by reading such a book aa the 'Lifo of Washington!' The reading of Unit ono book may change, the whole course of that boy's life, and may be the means of making him a useful, honor able, worthy citizen of this great country. It is, I tell you, a sight that impresses a European not accustomed to your demo cratic ways." Boston Herald. Determination of Death. M.
