Some Queer Conveyances—Vehicles of

?'i equent, complaints are heard about
the lack of originality in conveyances
in this country, says William Rnfus
in The Royal Magazine. Take rail
ways. When they were invented the
only 1110 lei that occurred to anybody
was the stage coach. But the train
could only imitate this despised fea
ture and was generally voted uncom
fortable as well as ugly. Ugliiiessi
however, is generally attributed to
anything unfamiliar, and trains seem
to have grown out of it. Motors have
also miff -red in the same way. The
only idea that occurred to any one
was to make them like carriages of
some kind—a wagonette or a landau,
or even a brougham—and people jeered
at the comical result. A carriage had
been designed to look well and sym
metrical behind a horse and shafts.
Without these it looked like a legless
man or a bald woman, or something
equally uncanny. The coachman on
the box with nothing in front of him
to drive came iv fur a lion's share of
Think of all the sorts and conditions
of conveyances—some clumsy, some
dainty, some fantastic, some useful,
and others utterly hopeless—which
travelers encounter in various parts of
the world. Perhaps the rudest of any

other evidences of primitive instincts
which accompany it, but it is full of
suggestions to an artistic mind. Fail
ing tliis we might easily find inspira
tion in the old sedan chair, which had
no rival for distinction and grace. I
often wonder why it was ever allowed
to go out of fashion. If the sedan

Bad a kind of sentry box, where you
sit bolt upright and be carried about
at a great pace. The position is tiring,
but you feel securer than in the more
luxurious equipages, where you have a
hammock or an armchair, and snooze
through a journey. Some of these are
drawn by two horses, one behind and
the other in front, but you are rather
at their mercy in case of a stumble.
For towns and smooth roads there is
nothing to beat the jinrikishas and
various little wheeled go carts drawn
by running men. The pace is often
that of a fast trotter and the motion is
very agreeable. The most picturesque
kind of litter, as might be expected,
is to be found iv Japau, where every
thing is arranged prettily. When you

'"travels like a woman." In parts of
India, however, where the English
are by no means considered effeminate
it is quite the recognized thing for
oflicers to travel about iv chairs car
ried by natives. Quite as interesting
as the queer conveyances are the
queer creatures that have been em
ployed to draw them.
Iv Abyssinia a mule costs as much
as two or three horses, and is always
preferred by persons of distinction.
Travelers who go to pay their respects
to Emperor Meuelek find it difficult to;
realize that they are doing the right
thing in riding mules, while their ser
vants bestride horses with line long
tails. The little donkeys of North
Africa also enjoy a certain considera
tion. Every one has a lurking desire
to be drawn by an unusual team. This
accounts for the popularity of goat
carriages by the seaside, as they can
not be amusing of themselves, seeing
that they go at a snail's pace, and you
are not allowed to drive. The same
thing may be said of ttie elephant rides
at the Zoo. I have a photograph from
California. It represents the first

A CHAIN BRIDGE LEGEND.
Long Roll Beaten by the Ghost of a
Drowned Drummer Boy.
"Have you ever heard that marvel
oils story of the drummer boy of China
bridge?" was the query of a reputable
and well known resident of Washing
ton propounded to a representative of
the Star. Being assured that the news
paper man had not been enlightened on
that particular topic his friend pro
caeded to entertain him by the narra
tion of a rather pathetic legend.
"Once upon a time," he began, when
the reporter immediately remembered
that he had important business claim
ing prompt attention and made a quick
motion to decamp. "Hold on; hold
on," said the storyteller. "What I'm
going to recite to you is true as holy
writ and every old resident in the vi
cinity of the Chain bridge will vouch
for it; every young one, too, for that
matter," he added, "I'll change the
introduction. In the early part of the
war there were several regiments en"
camped south of Georgetown, on the
Virginia side of the side of the old
Chain bridge, and in one of them there
was a very handsome drummer boy.
The youngster could beat the drum 'to
beat the band.' Well, one mild spring
evening this little fellow, who was
wandering on the bridge fell over
board. He fell in the deepest part of
the river, and the Potomac is "many
fathoms in depth about the Chain
bridge. If he had been wearing his
drum it might have saved him, but be
had left it in the camp. His body was I
found floating a day or two after the
mishap. There was not only general i
grief in his regiment, but among the
people in the locality as well, for the
little fellow was a general favorite.
"And now comes the wonderful part
of it. The night upon wbieh he was i
drowned was a hazy, misty evening,
with a full noon trying to shine through
trie dim atmosphere, and even to this
day in the springtime on such nights
many folks, in fact all the people, who
live near the Virginia side of the bridge,
have heard this drowned drummer boy
beating the long roll on his drum. It
is not often, but it is noticed that soon
after his drum beats some one passes
away from earth and, of course, no one
likes to hear it. More than that there
are two or three persons who have
seen gliding about the Virginia end of
the bride the shadowsy and ghost-like
form of the drowned boy. Don't take
me for authority," said the nairatcr
of this yarn, "ask any resident in that
neighborhood and you will hear the
same story from folks who would not
tell it if they had not heard the drum
beats of the lost boy on numerous occa
sions. No they are not pipe dreams,"
he said, as the Star man made a move
to get away. "They are facts. I tell
you, as Hamlet said to Horatio: "There
are more things in Heaven and earth.
Horatio, than are dreamt of iv your

A CLOCK WITH A HISTORY,
How the Town Timepiece ef Alexandria
Perhaps no clock in America has a
more interesting history than the one
in the steeple of the City Hall and
market house at Alexandria, Va. Back
in the days before the war Alexandria
was one of the Southern cities which
was known as a pretty rapid place tor
the sporting fraternity, but on those
days it was a square game and no
cheating—a gentleman's game from
start to finish.
On one occasion the town had been
vißltedby several gamblers from the
Southwest, who had come hither
"seeking whom they might devour."
At length a respectable citizen, who
occasionally took a flyer with cards,
fell into a snare which was set for him;
and after a series of games, caried on
on different nights, he found himself
fleeced out of something like two thou
sand live hundred dollars; As a "true
Southerner" he had to make good, and
this he did without bickering, but with
the determination to get even. He
was too honorable not to stand the
hazard of the die. A lucky thought
enabled him to bring about his revenge
on the blackleg. He had knowledge
that there was an old law in Virginia—
and a similar law is now on the statute
books—established while she was yet
a colony, in which it was "made and
provided" that if any man could not
show that he was pursuing some "law
ful means of obtaining a livelihood"
he should be sold or hired out at auc
tion to prevent by his labor, his be
coming chargeable to the town.
Going before a justice of the peace
he immediately entered complaint
against the gamesters. The man was
arrested, tried and condemned to be
sold at public auction.
Here was a dilemma. The gambler
was at first disposed to treat the whole
matter as a joke. But he soon
found out his mistake. He was taken
to a public stand, "put up" for sale
and the bidding began—the sale "per
emptory." His victim started the bid
with "one hundred dollars."
"Two hundred," said the blackleg.
And co the gambler and his victim
went on bidding until the amount
reached two thousand dollars, when
the former begged to be let off, plead
ing poverty; but all his pleadings would
not cause the cheated man to relinquish
his determination to make him pay
dear for what he has done. There was
no alternative, the gambler must eith
er be forced into a service of degrading
labor, under the supervision of a man
who had small cause to love him, or
he must go on bidding for himself,
which he was actually compelled to do,
until the sum had'reached three thou
sand five hundred dollars, when he was
permitted to pay over the amount and
depart from the town, a crowd of hoot
ing, yelling men and boys following
him to the wharf when he took the
steamer. The citizen then gave the
proceeds of the "man sale" to the city
to be used in putting a clock and
steeple on the town hall and market
house, which building was torn down
a few years ago to make room for a
larger and more modern structure.
Not a great many of the citizen know
the history of the old steeple and clock,
out Captain Ed. Dangerfield, one of
the foremost men of the State, told
the Building Committee that he was
particularly desirous of seeing the
steeple and clock preserved, and that
he wished to defray all expense of hav
ing the clock repaired and "moderni
zed" for the new building. This pro
position was accepted, and to-day the
people of the good old city have prac
tically the same clock their old time
citizen made a gambler pay for.
Between the ages of fifteen and forty-Aye,
the time when womanhood begins and moth
erhood ends. It is estimated that the aggre
gate term of woman's Buffering is ten years.
Ten years out of thirty! One-third of the
best part of a woman's life sacrificed ! Think
of the enormous loss of time I But time is
not all that is lost. Those years of suffering
steal the bloom from the cheeks, the bright
ness from the eyes, the fairness from the
form. They write their record In many a
crease and wrinkle. What a boon then to
