A good many people who would like to live on farms of their own in the sammer months are deterred from purchasing forty or eighty acres by the fact that there seems to be no way of getting any interest out of the eapital in vested.

I Was lat summer of '63 and in middle Tennessee. At that time, though a mere boy myself, I was a lieutenant in command of a company of Michigan soldiers and we were on te mareh nearly every day. One night when almost ll of My omen were en pieket duty I concluded to hae a eup of eofee and pro oceded to cook it over a little camp Are built at some distance In the rear of the line. Dur ing the operation there was a sudden crackling of twigs an the undergrowth near at hand, and as the country was a dangerous one I was soon on m fleet ad had a good grip on my revolver. The diturbance was quickly explained, for in less time than It takes to tell i there had ap peared in the edge of the circle lighted by the Camp Are one of the queerest little darkies I ever saw. His olothing consisted of the re mains of a hat, a tow stripe of shirt, one sus pender and the waitband-little more-of a pair of trousers. It would be exaggeration to say that he was ragged, since there wasn't clothing enough about him to make the rags. As he stood there in the lin light speechless, grinning and almost naked he appeared like a veritable imp from he realmws of darkness. I had been startled at bat, hut soon broke out into a laugh, in which My visitor joined heartily rolling his big whits eyes, and showing * long rows o vor60 in a maet ludicrous fashion. When I maid, "Howdy, sonyly' he replied, with a dour sh of his hat, "Bight smart, massas" and came ap to the fire. Then I returned to my coffee kid, taking up some hardtack, began may sup , slyly watching, ameanwhile, the face of the o, who was now sitting near me. I could see its mouth quiver every tme anything was put ato own. Feeling certain he was hungry, [had aded to tantalize him for a time, but moon ted and my haversack to Wrar him, tha understood in 1tatly. He must ye been early starved, ,or he ate as if he were houlo all the way Iowa to his tes. In answer to y questions be told me, between his mouthfu of hardtack, hat he had lived near Shelbyville a had ru kway from the plantation to join t e n ioldiers. He was too tired to talk much that might, and in a short time was curled up like a all and sound vsleep. The boy was up be rore daylight the next morning, and made him lIf useful in so many ways that he was again allowed to share my hard-tack, although i had none too much to supply my own needs antil the quartermaster should again issue ra ione. After seeing the little chap by daylight mad learning something of his disposition, how over, I had no inchnation to drive him away. le was rtainly one of the moat comical fig aree I have ever seen, either in the army or out of it. Whatever his lot bad been up to the ime of his appearance in our camp two square noahl, a night's rest anti a sight of the boys in alue had enabled him to forget it all and to be :ome as happy a youngster as the land of Dixie over held. Ah sight of him made the boys augh. and this fact pleased rather than an toyed him, since it gave him encouragement o give vent to his fun. U hen questioned as o his age and name his answer was, "I rek'n P's fo'teen 7eah ole, sah, by die time, and my tam's Phil. "Phil what?" "Date all de name I bas white folks couldn't 'fode two names fer ittle black nig like me." 'Where's your nammy?" "Dunno, sah; neverhad no mammy o long as I lived, sah," and this was about all Phil knew of his pedigree. Well, I took him along and he followed me ike a faithful dog, carryi-g my blanket, filling my canteen with fresh water at every good rook we crossed and picking up wood or >inging the nearest fence rails when fires iere needed. Night after night. too, the boys tsed the end boards of the wagons for Phil to lance cm. and he was never tired of furnishing agS for their amusement. Being a musician, noreover, in his way, he soon became the Aknowledged champion in song and dance over all others of his race who followed us. By way of appreciation the boys clothed their star a good style, furnishing him a whole shirt and pair of trousers shortened to correspond with Die stature. From this time on Phil was fired with a new ambition and eagerly looked for ward to the day when he would be largeenough o carry a gun and become a real soldier in Jode tSams army. Phil's religious ideas, too, re well worth recalling. Though not remark bly profound, they were so firmly fixed a the boy's mind that he almost al raya expressed them in the same words and never finished their recitation without shuddering from head to foot. The tory ran something like th but no one else 'ould tell it as he did: "Low winter when do otton was all dun ginned an de co'n dun bucked, ole Curly, de preacher, say dat we mne mass hab a meetin. and den all do brack ulks coes an bear him say what we uns ms to or de debbie kotch us.

After a time the bari..e 'f Chicka inauga was fought and more than lti of our regiment were killed or wounded. During the Ight Phil was seen helping a wounded man off tf the field, but for two days afterward he was among the missing. By that time we had taken a new position at Chattanooga and our men were hard at work on the breastworks, getting ready for another struggle.

Words, however, are of little consequene so long as the substanee remainja'd there is on question about quite a asublatia incesese In business. There is a marked revival in the in terest which the public is always supposed to have *hen real estale is concerned. Some times, however, people become indifferent to investments in houses and lots and the& real est.te brokers are allowed an interval of rest Just now the popular move ment is the other way and there is a demand for realty investmens that promises well. One of the largest real estate arms in the city reports that their business is a great deal better this February than during the same month last year. A good proportion of the transactions conducted by this Arm have involved unimproved land, and it is reamonble to suppose that a good percentage of thes buyers have purchased with the view of ima proving, rather than mere speculation. A good illustration of one of the present phases of the real eptate market was afforded recently when some property which had been withdrawn from sale for some time was offered at prices which were recognized as reasonable. Purchasers were readily found and in a few days the entire property was disposed of. Thu instance indicates that there is an abundance of money awaiting investment in real estate. Why it is not invested is one of thoee questions that is rather difficult to answer. There are various explanations given, none of them any more satisfactory than the oft-repeated one that people arc waiting for the bottom to fall out. of the market, expecting that then they can q plenty of bargains. This catastrophe hap bn so often predicted during the past twenty years and the hopes based upon have so often bn disappointed that there seems to be a well-defined and well-grounded conviction that the bottom of the realty market of this city is so well soldered en that nothing les than a great finanoial crisis, national in its extent, can force it off. In the meantime the city is forging ahead at a rapid rate, adding some 2.500 buildings yearly to its accommoda tions and some 5,000 souls to its popula tion. Property under such induences nat urally increases in value and when people get tired of waiting for 'the city to go back ward instead of forward and turn- their attention to paying investments for their money, if they happen to have any at that , they will tnd that values have appre ac and that it would have been money in thei ekets if they had invested and allowed som one else to make prophesies. ST3an nAILmOADs. A ewspaper man who loves to be exact took oce a not long ago to mark down on a map of the 'h he routes of all the street railroads and est. g of street railroads which Con gress had been asked at the present session to charter. When he had finished this task, which was not a slight one, he found that nearly every street in the city would be supplied with a street railroad it all the bills became laws. A number of streets would have more than one railroad along some sections, so that altogether the city would be pretty well gridironed. However, it is not probable that Congress will grant all the charters asked for. In fact, so far the House committee have re ported favorably bills for only two new street railways, and both of these are suburban. One is the Washington and Bladensburg road, to begin at Rhode Island avenue and 4th street east and to run to Bladensburg. fTe other is the Suburban railroad. wich starts at North Carolina and Pennsylvania avenues. then runs east and skirts around the city until it touches the Potomae at Little Falls and thence into Georgetown. The bills granting the extension of the Washington and Georgetown road to the Free bridge, the Anacoetia road up 9th street to 0 and thence along 0 to 11th and down 11th to its present tracks south of Pennsylvania avenue, and the extension of the lock Creek railroad to the main entrance of the Zoological Park and along Florida avenue to North Capitol street have also been favorably reported by the committee. The District committees of both Houses have reported favorably the bill for the extension of the Eckington road to the Capitol. With these exceptions no favorable. action has been taken upon any of the many street railway projects that have come before Congress. The general public is, of course. interested in these measures only to the extent that they serve obviously to supply existing needs for street car service. as avIrSIC Lanrm USAa. An ingenious plan has been devised for bringing to the attention of those desiring to rent rooms or entire doors in business build ings the advantages offered by sime particular structure. A pretty sketch of the exterior of the budding, together with foor plans, is reduced to the proper size, and then by some cheap process a cut is made which is used as a head for letter paper. In answering inquiries about the building these sheets are used, and by means of tne illustrated letter head the correspondent has placed before him a pictorial representatiom, which Is much more effective than any written descrip tion possibly could be. Be can see juss how each room is situated, and, as they are all numbared, the prices can be give~n by number, which eaves a great deal of tinie. This device was suggested by Mr. J. laushi Marshall, who had the design af the ex terior of the new building for contagious dis eases which is to be erected fur the Children's tiospital, together with a plan of the interior, made into a very attractive letter head. As this building is being erected by means of sub ecriptions those interested tiad sheets of note paper illustrated in this way a wonderful help in bringing the enterprise to the favorable at tention of those whose assistanice is desired. sown NEw ousse. Mr. 1. 0. Blerger, who is the manager ot a theatrical company that recently visited this eity, has purchased two lots on 18th street just in the rear of Mrs. Logan's residence, where he intenda to build a home for his own use. He owns a frontage of 100 feet and he proposes to erect there a house which will cost from 012,000 to 018,000. A lot has also been recently purchased by Mr. F. W. True on Yale between 18th and 14th streets, which will be the location of a com fortable house he intends to erect there for his hume.

Wagnerirs has received a painful black eye today in the shape of a formal compact be. twe Abbey and Grai and the Metropolitan Opera House magastes, whereby French and Italian opera is to reign supreme for the next three years. This is a great rise to moat Cpie, 44 It WaND COImNE11y ratedWd that seasos experiment was not prosperous enough to warrant its repetitionbut at the lat moment the tide seamed to turn in favor of the present management. and they have decided to keep on under the very liberal inducements ofered by the million. airs proprietors.

This great opera never seems to lose its fa cinaets and has never had duer representiten than has been given by the artist. of the Abbey A Gran company. The Wagnerian forces are thrown into some con fusion by today's decision, but it is not all un likely that they may organise a German aeason in some other theater next year. TEE VPEULL WORE or agroag. The charges made by Dr. Parkhurst have takes exactly the course which all previous charges have taken, and for the meoment, cer tainly, they have accomplished no more in the way of bringing theoffending atie to justie. Everyone in New ork is fam withero time. The saloon keepers are promptly baled out, generally by thoee who make it their basi nes to attend to this step in the defenas, and their esae are put on the docket, which is already so crowded that it would take years to reach the bottom In reg ular order. The prosecuting officers decline to advance the cases, on the ground that other matters of more Importance stand ahead of them. The claim is then made that the criminal courts of the city are unable to cope with the volume of important business on the docket., and that is the hat of the whole business. I believe that not a ngle one of thee cases has been tried in New York for some years. Iepeated attempts have been made, often backed up by a very decided public sentiment, to force a trial. but utterly without success. Meanwhile the moral sentiment is refreshed by such sermons as Dr. Parkhurst hurled from has pulpit last Sunday, and is is in this direction vrobably that the meat good can be done. In a matter like this, affecting the moral attitude of the community, laws are of no consquence unless the sentiment of the inhabitants is em phatically in favor of a rigid morality. It must be said that the wickedness which Dr. Park hurst criticise. so fiercely is by no means more outrageous than formerly; in faqt so far as outward observation goes the mbcality of the city is exceptionally good. PREPAXINo 7o OZONE IN TEE DoG DAT. One would hardly expect to find the excar sion season active at this time, when we are reading about blizzards, but as a matter of fact the dates for next summer are almost all taken up. The Iron Steamship Oompany has gone into the suburban excursion bauness very extensively. Four of their eet are generally occupied carrying parties on all-day picnics, and so great is the demand for this sort of pleasuring that it is didcalt Piready to get a good day. Rome of their regular custemers. as, for example, the large Sunday schools and the like, engage the boat for next year on the day of the excursion. This closes some of the best dates. The books, however, are formally opened for engagements on the ist of January, and there is immediately a rush for the best days. Tbese excursions have bees reduced to a system, and the fatigue and daager are almost done away with. The charge is about E$300 a day, for which sum the excursionists have the exelnsiveo use of the boat, with its oticern and crew. In case of a storm the rule Is that the partis engaging the boat only pay for the expense of coaling up and bringing the boat to the pier. This Is always done, no mat ter how fleree the weather, but once at the pier the excursionists can decline to embark an case the weather is obviously unpropitious. The popularity of these water pienice has increased very much of late, until now on every fair day In sammser you will find the waters of the bay and vicinity dotted with pleasure craft, all anm to the gunwale, with passengers.
