CHKISTOPHER.
AND TIIE FAIRY.
By W. C. Moirow.
Centrepole Tom profcBsed to know everything
about all the distiuguLshcd people of the " pro.
fe_-iou" in ail parts of Christendom. and likely he
did know a great deal; for, in hi. bumblc capacity,
he had served many of them in divers cnuntrica.
nn_, though a ho.-tstful man. he had never beeu
detected iu an inability to give trustworthy in
foruuitiou. Bo, when it was announoed. with n
great show ol kirge tyjie. that " ('liristopln-r and
the Fairy" had jwt lamh-d *% San Francisco from
an Australian steamer. under contract for the re
ineiiider of the seiuson, there was mu.-li exeitement
and curiosity among the pcople of the circus, nnd
Centrepole TM* was at onee exploited for Imowl
edge 11,1 in iii!.. them.
" Hain't you ever heard of Christopher and the
Fairy * he asked, pityingly ; " well. that _its me.
The Funys th" p-.irtiest liltle tiick 00 wlu-cls, MV
the way she kin de the fi.viu_ Irapeze is somcthitig
'stonishing. No, I hain't never seen her. but I
know all about. her. A follow worked for me last
aeason that seen her at Mcil.onriie. and lie told me
a whole strit.g of stull about her. Every n.an-jack
under tlie eanvas went d.-ad _.>ne on her. hut she
never took no notice of any ol 'em. and didn't seem
to eare for nobody. s-.cicn bul tbe women's and
that ornery, m.-asly okl ChriMophrr."
" Is Christopher her haflbaaf* asked a long
leggi* 1 young groora.
"K8I* thuudered Tom. with so great vehe
_ne*nce that the y-.ung man (luailod. aml tmred not
ask any morc (piestions.
" Ilrotlier ?'" inouired one of the ring ".upcrs.*'
" No!" yelled the veter.u. master of the centre
pole-hoist I " hc ain't her linsliiin, nor her hrotlier,
nor her uncle, nor her gmnd father, nor her
cousin."
The head-hostler, as mucli a veteran as Centre?
pole Toiu, and morc modest and less theatrical
than he, qui.-tlv s'lid :
"N>. use _*-arlt>g a fool of yourself and pattlng
on airs before these here boys. I don't know w)io
Christopher is, nn' I ain't ashamed to say so.
Now. who is Christopher." Thlfl was the su
pretne moment for whieh Centrepole Tom had
waited. lle ?quarrd hin.slf around, and, looklng
Btendilv at the hcad-ho.'Ior. Mid itnpressively UM
?with tlie utinost deitberation:
"Christopher is an 'cl.-pliant."
It was asinall speccli, but it WM some time after
this liefore the two men -8088M fOOQ friends
_?___,
There was a conimotion all through tlie sinnll
? nny of circus pcople when Christopher and the
Fairy arrived. They did not eomo to the tents
Ior two or three days after landing, as it was
riiniorcl thal < hl-ftopbet hnd beei eeaaick on tlie
vovage ncrOM the l'a.ili'- an.i needed a little NBt.
?\Vhen they did appear, however, they were cor
dially wclcotried. The wonien of the circus found
the Fairy (wbo, ln private life. was known ns
Miss ( aiinlla Artnljo) to bc a delightfu] girl, motv
auhstantial than a geimine tairy, to Im* sure, but
lmrdly more so: for, although she was full-grown.
?he WM so smarl and frugile that her professional
name Ml well upon her. There was a light touch
of B-dMM in al! her conduct, and Centrepole Tom
explalned this by Mying that she had recently lost
I'oth her p; .BFUta liow he discovered this, no?
body e%er M ild 99X9, Hut it was clear. ut least,
that she was a very sweel and gentle little Body,
very young, nnd wilh no friend in San Francisco
exoept old Chriaiopher.

pcople v.itli whom she WM to 1k* asso.iated ti.e
remainder of the eeaoon, and had phntted an.i
quietly laug'licd with them l little, she turned to
tlie mctia.ci i.' ?___ and said :
"Now. we will show Christopher his quarters,''
And. by tlie diirnilied flapning of his great ears,
Christopher secmed to aad: "Ws; we are pre
pared now to eoe what you can do for old
Christopher."
In fact, while they were about it, and all feel
ing :. ceitiiin inicn-st in the little .tranger and

ductcd to his allolted pl.iee in thc menagerie tent.
?where an iron pin was driven into the ground
and a chain, whi.-ii WM rivcted to it, wns locked
nrotind ono of faifl let-s. The pin and the chain
were pflrt of his belongings, and hc was a.
eustomed to lie chained np thus an'l made no ob
ieetion. Fvidcnfly hf suffered n? loss of diunity
ny this operatioa, Ior he appeared to say to him?
self, "Thts is nerfectly proper. I am sure; for it

It wns very pretty to see how M_k_foa8"WM tln
Fairy ol her immense charge. She saw that he
had a suflicient allowance of fr?*h, sweet ha.v,
and. from a bag whieh she carried, she fed him
some dainties whirh she had for that pnrpose and
whieh he took in his lithe trunk wlth manifest
token. of ^ratltude. She patted his great jaws
and aaid kind things to lii ui. aud he took it all
M a matter nf rourse, seerning lo snv, " 1 see
nothing at all strange in the .-it'ection and sol- :i
tnde whieh this beautiful little Fairy Javishes
upon me; for am I not a very large and majestio

better than doM any one else in all the world ''"'
And it wa? pretty to see how gently she bade
him good-bv until the evening performanee, whieh
woald* l*gin in two hours from that time.
There \vns a far 'areater crowd than tisual at

When he ha/1 flnished, the <-.'cpliant came slowly

aud daintv. and Christopher wns so ovcrwhelming,
and tnajcHtie, and stern, that the strange picture
oaught the audlenee with gweeping force. and the
applauae hecame deafening. Christopher calmly
marche- into the nug and pro'-oeded deliberaU*ly
around it. the Fairy meanwliile guiding him with
jrentie hand-preanure on one Mde of his m-cU ut
ihe othcr, while with the o?bcr hand sl.e threw

and Bmillng, dbnpled cbcH<_. her rosy mouth, her

tlie olown. He had heard them liefore and waa not
to be amuwd. Tbe Fairy boinded to her feet on
tlie great animal's back. and there found room for
?ome entert_ining trleke of agility. Then she
gave him a tap with her sliopeied little foot, and,
ln responae, he brought hls long trunk around,

Then the clown tlircw a tape over a trapezc hung

an.l whispercd words to Christophcr, she aprang

these feats, each more daring than its prcdecoosor.
she would call down in her musio.al. pearly volec:
" Wa_ tliat all right, Christoplier?"
And Christoplier would wave tlie flag and
solemnly nod his appn.val, as uiticli as to BUT |
'?Of cmirsp it wus all right; but we cxpect tliat
tfom you, little fairy!''
Finallv came her grentest feat-it was to lenp
clear acr.?s the ring froin one trapeze to another.
She restcl awliile liefore undertaking it. and
Christoplier, knowing what was coming, hni.el
hinisell, all his massivc muscles going on a tensioii,
as though trving to give licr strengtli and alertnoss
for the dangerous tnak. Tlie hand played a
spirited air while tlie girl sat, still on the bar; then

ai.dienee. The fairy caught the bar in her hands
and swung underncaih it, and hcr clear voioe rang
out ngain:
"Keep a sharp eye, old Christoplier."
The elephant. nodded and waved hi8 flag, but
with less st_t_irt_s8 tlian before. Tbe Fairy be
gan to swing backward and forward in tbe dirc

after ber flight through" tbe nir. Furtber and
furtber did she BWtOf, higher and higher, WM*
and fortb, ber glittcring Bpaaglre looking like
?a shower of mcteors. A ringing voice cried out:
?'Now we go, Christoplier:" and she 1888-4 ber

curve, then down townnl tbe trapcze, still so far

held it ereaked t_ the strain came upon them.
A hold with one band was not enoii_h, and tha
Fairy had not time to bring tbe othcr to liear

of stalls and counters whlch are charac'erlstic of the
street. Kruits. game. shellftsh and othcr klnds aa
well, chcap-very chcap-mcats. celcry and green goods
are sold here. Here also are IfB, datcs and nuts and
all klnds of blrds ready for cocrklng. Let It be added
that thc Impartlal dust of Vesey-st., faillng on frult
nnd fowl allkc, makes nccc-sary thcir thorough washliig
by purchasera.
Vesey-st. buslncss may 1* dlvldcd into three classes
according to slte-flrst floor, upstalrs and street.
Among the first may bo clnssed several restanrants. a
number of wlne and llquor deale.?. Importers and
rcctlflers, a shoo manufactory. a large groccry. ?
crockery and glasswa.-e store, wholesnle and retall
clgar place*. several large tca and coffee warehonses,
a frult storc aud a place where all sorts of bask. ts
are on ?ale. The space outslde thc windows of this
last I- gay wlth colored wldtcr. rattan and spllnt.
Afl ?ea -lores dlsplay their outslde wares In huge
blns whlch aro dlscrcctly covered wlth strong BM
ncttlng. else many a passer by mlgl.t hastlly seet.rc a
handful of tho fragrant bcans and >avcs. They also
show gaudy tln cans wlth ccrtain brands of goods. and
the reda and ycllows add to thc symphony of hrlght
rolors on the street. Thero- ls aMo a candy store
whose wholc front can be removed. Many of the
stores are arranged In that way and the majority of
Veaey-st. buslnees can be des.rlbcd ln a word as
"street trade."
A toy store overfiows on the sldewalk wlth rows of
boolts, dnngllng groups of dolls and mefTianlcal toys of
all <orts. Hardware stores arc another feature of the
street They always ict many of their wares out on
booths next to their windows and dlsplay in basfcets
or boxes of utilform slzo evcrythlng In the metal line.
They are always surro.inded by groups of men looklng
at bargains in knlvcs, rulers, nutplcks. brooms, plcture
eord. hooks and things unmentlonable because of their
varletv.
The clothlng tradc ls reprcsented by a store wnere
men's complete outflts are sold. There are places for
the ?alo of rubber and wire good-. ctgars
and plpes. statlonerv. s.ipports for crlpples. dnigs,
trunk. and bags, ctertrlral rontrivances and manv
morc There are stalls where yellow cherse. add to
the number of colo.s. and hasements. carrylng a stock
of plcmes m green. red and white, havo pushed their
rontents out to the b*vel of the sldewalk. Somftlmcs
good looklng glrls preslde over these nrldulatcd morsels
nf peppers, rucumhers and onions. and If yon buv
a pa.ilf.il of tho sharply odorous compound they wlll
present to vou a shlnlng tln pall.
Tho upstalrs busineas of Vesey st. Is dlfferent from
its first floor or street trade. one need only rend the
?l<*ns on tho lia.II dlrectorles to see that. Here ls a
pUce where all sorts of wrlMng nnd typewritlng sup
pllea are dcalt ln; there a btirglar alnrm ls on ex
hlbltlon for tlmid houscowners. Knravlng, palntlng
and llthographlng ItouMsli and one Jewelry manufactory
whlch makes a speclalty of those anrlent "novcltles."
se.. hean and alligator leeth Jewelry. retalns lta slgn
to that effect. Bookslates arc made In one place,
wenther strips nnd n\le-washers ln another. Hags and
hanners In a thlrd. A lawycr's slgn Is tho only one
of Its kind In one large hutlding, despiie the fnct that
mlsory love- company. and the estate of some nnn 13
admlni-tercd In anothcr. One tirm sells gratc
bnrs. another trlcyeles, still another corks. A
place where band Instiuments are kept deaotcs thc
h,t by a cnue of banjos. arcordcons and
flntes set outslde. Picturcs nnd plctnrc-frames occupy
. rnse on tho steps ot anothcr bullding, and that
feaiher dnsters arc to be found wlthin a certaln
"thlrd-story front " ls shown by a row of them swing
ing from a bar whlch projects from the wlndow.
" I.cathcr flndinKS," "syrups nnd cordials.'' " lamp
ahades," and '? hypophosphltes" complete a 11st hastlly
made while pns-ing nlong.
There ls almost too much street trade to allow one
to stop, for the smnll tradcrs look susplclously at any
one who lolters, and think a pcnrll and note-book with
a reporter attaehed are almost as great a curioslty as
n Kodak. To close tlie upstalrs buslnesses, there are
<ome ndvertlslng ngents, and at leaat one paper Is
publlshcd here, while the central oflice of a newspnper
syndlcate representa the world of letters In a atreet
whose dally Inhabltants look as lf they were llttle ac
qunlnted wlth anythlng so clvili.lng.
n.it most of the pleturesnueness of Vesey-st. lles
In Its street trade nnd tradcrs. The men and women
rival famous Jugglers in pillng up wares on almost no
ha-'e nt all, or In kecping lnrgc stocks of clilna ond
fraglle things flnt on iron stcps. with llttle or no
hrenkapo. A ntimher of women stand grindlng horse
mdlsh Just outslde the curb. and if any cart* attempt
lo .Kurp their places or drive too near there
Is an nngry war of words, the women's shrlll
toncs always gcttlng the hest of it. One
woman, standlng on a corner, lins nrranged on thc ond
of a snapbox n stock of matcbos, shoc-blacklng and
dlrty-lnohlng Ca?tllc soap. She can malntaln her plaro
there all day, though no OM Itnows how except the
InlUatei. IBfl stands with her box rlght on Ihe crtgo
of thc curb, and there wlll he morc than one blockade
in BM IflrM-t w-lth rcaring horses, lorked whecls and
swearlng diivers", but she will not be roi.ted. If you
hut glancc at Itcr she will say: " Here you are, parlor
matclies.''
Now a man stcps np around whoae neck hnngs a
qtiecr looklng bnndlo of dried ?tuff, very savory, as
one's nose at onee dlscovers. Hc calls out, "Thyino
and sage, lady," to each woman who passes, but
though they rcmnrk, " How good It smells," they do not
often buv. The thyme and sage man ln the fall is
supportcd by thc man wlth wreaths nnd bunches of
shitilng Chrlstmas greens. Anothcr entcrprUIng ped

whose roots are sttiek In balls of moss-eoTered soll.

his basket wlll not hold the glossy frond- very long.
An epg-denler has piled up hls wares wlth a toy roostcr
standing over all, and near Imn is a stall. like olhers
on tho street, where n young fHlow prcsldes over cheap
notlons and fnncy goods, iiicliidinfl red and white lamp
wicks, bandnnas of every slze and huc, pocketbooks,
iiiuiotis, -tocldngs, su-iiender- and many other tlilng^.
If one looks in hls dlrectlon hc Is ready with a MflBL
"Can I BflB you anytliing today I"
A woman who is arranglng her wares sHnllar to
these shakes out a bunrh of chlldren's black hose,
pounding ihem against tho top of a convenlent barrel
to get the dust out. One man has a little stock of eye
glasses, some rravaH, collar buttons and a square white
c.whlon stuck full of scaif plns. There are plt.k and
white pop.orn balls; there are trunks and travelllng
bags. A man wlth hls stock of peaeoek feathers tlcd

to another WB0M varlety of canaiics In llttle wooden

on the pNt/orm of steps leadlng to a blg bullding
a man has -prcad hls supply of se.ond hand sllver and
