light, the wrestling is all over as soon as either
man strikes tho ground, and to throw a man
in a prize-fight you must catch him fairly
above tho waist. Dempsey used to be a
oollar-and-elbow wrestler, as was Carroll.

f- r T tlmo. Now thero is
's -J' tho Parisian bath, for
instance. Do you know how the Parisians
pursue tho practice said to bo next to Godli
ness?" Havingirecoived tho reporter's admission of
innoconco as to tho subject, the gentleman
contlnuodi "Well, to begin with, exceed
ingly fow houses in Paris, excopt tho big ho
tels, havo bath-rooms. You might conclude
from this statement that tho Parisians aro
not particularly fond of bathing. But tlioy
aro, and now I will tell you how they do it.
We will supposo you aro a Parisian living
comfortably in a suite. Moroovor wo will
supposo you take a morning bath overy day
in the year. Now all that is necessary for
you to do is to lcavo your order at a bathing
establishment and a man will come at tho
specified hour with a shining, roomy tub and
deposit it near your bed. Thon ho will bring
in a copper oyhndor-shaped oven containing
what they call a peignoir, which is
thus kept worm until you put it on after
stepping out of tho tub. Tho man covers tho
bottom and sides of tho tub with a sheet,
and then fills the tub with water of tho
roper temperature, whioh ho brings with
ilm in his cart, a peculiar looking vehicle,
by tho way, resembling about as mueh as
anything a gayly painted oblong boiler on
wheels. Having thus prepared tho bath, ho
adds one finishing stroke to it by dropping
into tho steaming water a considerable quan
tity of bathing powder, which serveB as a
skin tonio, and at tho same tlmo emits a lovely
perfumo, suggesting resinous odors of tho
woods. The man now withdraws for an hour
and leaves you to enjoy your dolioious ablu
tions. " You emcrgo from tho bath in half an hour
feeling like on entirely now man. It seemB
as though tho exhilerating perfume of the
water has entered your very soul. You step
lightly out of tho tub and slip on the warm
peignoir as though it wero a linen duster,
which it slightly resembles, and by means of
which you do not get to shivering while you
are drying yourself.
" That is the way tho Parisians bathe. This
kind of a both costs three francs sixty cents
in Paris. In New York it should not moro
than half that sum. I think it a very good
system to introduce in this city and I havo
had some idea myself of starting an establish
ment of tho kind. It possesses superior ad
vantages for the peoplo who do not llvo in
houses whoro thoro aro bath-rooms. And tho
medicinal benefits of this powder stirred in
tho water are a great thing in addition to the
fragrant quality it imparts. And then
another advantage is that the tub is brought
to you and everything is prepared. You can
step out of bed in the morning into your tub
and have a splendid scrub beforo dressing.
For tho reasons I havo mentioned I am
sanguine that the Parisian style of bathing
would prove very popular in Now York."

oxpodionts offered the slightest seourity, and
thet was tho confidence and co-operation of a
stunch friend. But I was effectually pro
vented from appealing to tho sympathy of
my aunt or her acquaintances by the general
impression already created that I was some
thing of a monomaniac. My valetudinarian
habits and complaints vexed her unreason
ably, and to go to her now with the new
crotchet of premature burial would be only
to invito her ridicule and contempt. I was
actually ashamed to inako a confident of any
body. Ju was the only person who appeared
to have tho least sympathy for me. If I over
slept myself I was suro to hear hor timid rap
at my door, and tho inquiry if I was quite
well. If I was beguiled into the debauchery
of late hours, and como home at 2 o'clock in the
morning, letting myself in ever so softly, I
was suro to detect her peering down over tho
balustrado as I came upstuirs. It seemed
inevitable that this girl's solicitude, for which
I do not believe she could give the slightest
rational excuse, should draw me to her.
Then the idea oocurred to me of making a
confidante of her, and some conservative in.
stiuot within me grasped at the thought with
a zest that my reason could not account for.
But how to do it. Such an intimacy was
beset with difficulties of tho most delicate
nature. It was accident and not my ingenuity
that brought it about. Tho Bummer passed
without any return of my troubles, and I
gavo myself to literary pursuits. One morn,
fng in October my aunt was taken suddenly
ill, and a neighboring doctor was called
in. Ho was u young man. remarka
bly handsome, and very, skilful, and
won tho respect and confidenco of tho
family at once. Finding him an intellectual
student very much after my own mind, a
rather warm friendship grow up between us,
and ho bocame a constant visitor at the
house. He Bpent a great deal of time in my
room, and naturally enough I in the end nar.
rated the particulars of my own case to him.
He was deeply interested and made it a study.

whioh told tho Btory in atartling peals and
summoned tho firo engines. Thero wero
towers of this kind al tho Post-Olllco, City
Hall, Marion street, Essex street, Spring
streot, Jefferson Market, Thirty-third, Fifty,
first and Eighty-eighth streets and at Harlem.
But they gradually disappeared as moro per.
feet arraugcmentB wero perfected for tho
safety of tho city. One, with an immense
bell, was pulled down about a year ago iu
Spring etroot, near Varick.
Tho old boll-tower at Mount Morris still
stands on a littlo hill in the park and it will
probably not bo removed. Tho iron touguo
of the boll sends forth its notes, but not to
alarm as of yoro. Tho boll was not rung for
nearly a year, since it no longer served any
purpoBo, But tha people complained. Thoy
had boon used to hearing it and liked tho
sound. So it 1b now rung three times a day
by a fireman from tho englno-houso on Ono
Hundred and Twenty.fourth street. Ho
strikes tho hour on tho bell at 8 in tho
morning, at noon and at 1) in tho evening.
James McCuslcor 1b an old boll. ringer on
tho Mount Morris tower. Ho is llfty-soveu
years of ago, and is at prcBcnt superintend
ing the laying of gas pipeH, under a contract,
for flfty-slx miles. "Tho tower wos built iu
1851," ho said. "Tho first boll-man was
Christopher Siomon, who now has a farm
down in Virginia. I was appointed to tho
position in 18G0 and continued in it four
years. It was a political position, which tho
Mayor had tho disposal of. A forco of throo
men ran tho towor. Somo ono had to bo
thoro all tho timo. It was not vary comfort
able, for it is cold up thore in winter and hot
in summer, and then n man was altogether to
himself. Wo used to bo glad enough to wol
como visitors. Thoy broko tho monotony.
When a bell-man was stationed thero regu
larly a great many peoplo used to climb up
the Bteps to enjoy tho vlow. A fireman was
given chargo of it in 1867. It is of no uso
now, and is used only an a landmark. When
tho tower was built it was a good way off
from New York, and tho wholo country
round about was marsh and fields. The sal
ary was $1,000 a ycur. I went on at o'clock
in tho morning and stayed thero until 6 in
tho evening. Then I was relievod until IS,
when I came on again and remained until 8.
Then I was off until 0 o'clock in tho evening
of tho first day."
" I broko the bell onco sounding tho alarm
for a fire over in Bloomlngdalo," continued
Mr. McCluskcr. " Barnum's circus, at Elm
Park, was on firo. At the second stroke of
the fourth alarm I noticed that tho bell was
cracked. It was four times tho sizo of this
boll. Why, thoy UBed to hear it in West
chester villngo, and that is six miles away.
Three mouths afterward thoy took tho bell
down and put up this smaller ono. The tower
Htands just as it was built. Nothing has beon
done to it except for necessary repairs.
This present bell was put iu about 1863. Tho
Firo Commissioners appoint tho man who
rings the bell now. But it is nothing of a
position. The fireman simply goes up three
times a day to ring it. Thoro is no salary."
Tho view from the top of the tower is a
fine ono. When the air is clear many points
of interest can be seen. McCombe's Dam,
High Bridge, tho PalisadoB, with the silver
Hudson flowing smoothly along at either
baso, aro seon in one direction. In another
direction tho Cotholic Protectory stands out
from tho groen of the woods, and some of
the prominent Westchester homes. Tho
view extends up tho Sound as far as Fort
Schuyler. With a glass the flag can bo
descried on tho old flug-stuff. IUndall,
Ward and Blackwoll islands aro pretty sights
from tho tower, with their big buildings and
groen trees. Tha old Ithinelaudor Mansion,
flow tho Convent of tho Sisters of tho Good
KUephord, may boseen at tho southeast. So
also tha John Jacob Astor rosideuce (tho
grandfather of tho present John Jacob),
which is near tho Ilhinclnnder house. With
a glastJ tho wooded shores of Staten Island
mav alix bo soon.
The boll-tower in Mount Morris Purk is
not a very attractive specimen of architec
ture, aud even the rawiges of timo will not
moulder it into picturesquo decay. It is an
octagonal b.nildiug, four stories in height.
The lowest iry is of closed Bides, clap,
boarded and painted on olivo green. Tho
second and tlifrd stories aro open. Eighty
fluted iron colnmus support them. Tho
fourth btory has tho octagounl room where
tho watchman uxc-d to shield himsolf from
the storm or chill of winter. Tho walk
around this room 1b protected by a hand
railing. Hero the guardian of tho district

Tho muscular rigidity had extended to all

instead of outgrowing the malady, it had hi on

aud would not go away until sho heard my
voice, and had poked a letter through on tho
sill. It was from Dr. Cruden.
' Wait a moment. I've got it hero ; you
shnll read it."
Melton then got up and found tho follow,
ing note in u secretary, which he handed mo
to read:

An irou Rtalrway winds to tho top. From
two iron girders between the second and

a good tone, though several times smaller
than the one which used to be thore. Largo

bo heard as far ns Fordham.
So it stands thoro, tho relic of a post sys.
tern, without tho hoorincss of age to make it
a moving spectacle. There Is no reason why
it should over bo removed. It adorns tho
hill tun. and tho young people sit on tho scats
around it in theso pleasant October dnyB. As
tho fireman ascends tho spiral stairway to
clang tho hour of 1) on evenings when tho
wind Is whistling nbont tho ton, ho probably
feels glad enough to think that there is no
staying up thoro to bo done, as formerly.

In full of WutrlieR.
On South Fifth avenue, between Blccoker
and Houston streets, is a small, box-liko
store, whoro tho rays of such situlight oh tho
tracks of tho elevated road allow to enter,
aro reflected from hundreds of gold anil
silver watches exhibited attractively in tho
singlo window and about tho place. Within,
tho barely audible ticking of tho tiny time
pieces makes incessant niuslo, varied occa.

two old-fashioned clocks, whicu seem to fur
nish a basHo accompaniment.
Tho watches aro many of them of old pat
terns, a siuglo opcu-faco among tho seoro.
Tho absence of many gold cases is accounted
for by tho character of the business and tho
neighborhood. Hero tho purchasers carry
a timo-ploco for uso only. As an ornament
for personal adornment thoy havo no uso for
it. Tho littlo l!! ticker serves them as good
purpose as a !M affair to the uptown pur

is then tho old-patturuod cases aro opened,

ing, whilo I seemed to bo emerging slowly
from the glooms aud forgetfuluess of tho
gravo. Presently I comprehended that it
wus John, tho waiter, knocking at my door,
but it sounded to mo as if ho wero hauimer
iug a bronze goto with a iledge. I tried to
answer him, but could not utter a word. I
tried to open my eyes, to move my urins, to
struggle, to gasp-It was in vain. I was
locked up in death's embrace. Ah, if ono
could only explain iu words tho horror of
emotion without thu power to exprtss it!
Then I endeavored to collect my thoughts,
which in tho agony of fear was hard enough.
I remembered the shower-bath. It seemed a
hundred years ago. I recalled one by ono
the cirruinstancts of the previous night ami
painfully put " them together iu their
sequence of action. I was conscious tfcatT
wob lying partly on my left side, that my
jaw had fulleu and that my right arm
was r"sting on my breast. But it seemed
nlso that my heoit was beating regularly,
but with unusually loud pulsations, aud
I said to myself, 'Nobody can for a moment
supposo 1 am dead with that furious palpita

my attention was sufficiently arrested by this
and tho rntiocinativo process connected
enough to guess nt tho tlilth, which wns that
tho pulsating sounds wen' tho licking of my
watch against tho head-board of tho bed,
where I had hung it. I tried to forecast tho
events that wcie about to tako place about

1 projected tho appearance of my room in my
mind, building the picture up in my brain My
details, saving, ' there is tho window, there is
tho iimutel with my revolver over it, and
thero is tho escritoire.' Then 1 heord tho
thunderous knocks on the door again and
voices ns if in consultation; then a new
sound that told mo (hut somo oue was look,
ing over tho transom, and as distinctly as if
I saw it I knew that somebody had run down
stairs, and that tho first shock in tho sensa
tions that were to come hnd arrived, namely,
alarm. As if to compensate tho loss of vis.
ion, tho sense of hearing was greatly in
creased. J heard my aunt's step ou
