From the New Ter Tribuna.
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. A good deal has been aid recently
about the "abandoned" farms of New England I
and the low pricesat which they have been and 4

summer. There would be no need then of I

and no bills to pay. except for food and a serv- I

of Anther one-his eaet counter
pert-that I had in charge for a few months
abt irth years ago.
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

,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

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

regiment were killed or wounded. During the
Ight Phil was seen helping a wounded man off

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. The batteries ofI

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.

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.

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

in bringing the enterprise to the favorable at
tention of those whose assistanice is desired.
