To all upon whom the disagreeable tensity, for some reason or other, bas devolved, a day among the Shy locks of Chicago will bo no novelty, nd they never forget the ordeal that m undergone. To sit In a well-appointed office, the furnishings of which bespeak opu lence, and barter for n loan with men hardened to withstand the distress of ethers, who steel themselves against uy feeling of pity that might come upon them, and calmly one almost might say cruelly state In sharp yet polite terms their rates for the use of their gold, N nn experience few peo ple might choose to undergo, and yet, day by day, the chroniclers of news an nounce the results of the relentless en ergy of the Usurers. A short tlmo ago either told that It has been sold ac cording to law to satisfy the mort gage, or Is compelled to settle on a basis of foreclosure charges, moving charges, storage charges, custodian'! charges, release charges, until a re view of the cost of the entire trans actions shows that he has very nearly paid cent for cent for the use of his money for less than a year. Htorjr of n I'araaol. In the history of the umbrella Is told a story of n beautiful fringed green silk parasol of the time of the French Itestorntlon. One summer afternoon more than seventy years ago two plcasauMookliig people sat In rented chairs In the Champs watching the passers-by nnd enjoying the beautiful day. The gen tleman looked as if he might be a pros perous tradesman; the young woman was beautifully dressed nnd very at tractive In appearance. When they rose to go away the gen tleman found that he had no money. The woman who owned the chairs stormed nnd scolded, and denounced them as swindlers, until, to pacify her, the gentleman took the lady's parasol, nn exquisite nffalr of green silk, fringe, nnd with n rosewood handle, nnd gavo It to her. lie handed her one of tho I lndy's yellow gloves also, and said: THE MOTMOT, OR .1 Oo Ttir'Miuli the Hewers to Search fer Articles of Value. Shoremen, or shoreworkers, they sometimes call themselves, but their most familiar appellation Is "toshers," and the articles they pick up "tosh," They really belong to another well known class, tho mudlarks, but con sider themselves n grade or two nlxivo theso latter, for tho genuine tosher does not coutlno himself ns they do, traveling through the Thames tnud ntid picking up odd pieces of coal or wood, copper, nails, bolts, iron and old rope. The tosher, when tho coast Is clear of tho police, makes his way Into the sew ers, nnd will venture sometimes for miles in quest of valuables that occa sionally And their way Into them by the kitchen sink or the street grating-. When about to enter tho sewers these men provide themselves with a pole even or eight feet long, on one end of which there is a largo Iron hoc, a bag carried on the back, n canvas aproa tied around them, nnd n dark lnntnrn, similar to a policeman's. This they strap on their right breast, so that while walking upright through thf largo sewers the light Is thrown straight in front. When they conio to the branch sewers and have to stoop, the light Is thrown directly nt their feet, As they make their way they use their hoe In the mud at their feet and in the crevices of the brickwork, and occa sionally shillings and silver spoons find n temporary resting place In the bag at their back or In their capacious coat pockets. Tho toshers generally go In gangs of three or four, both for the sako of com pany nnd to bo nblo to defend them selves from the rats with which the sewers swarm. When they come near n street grating they close their lan terns nnd watch an opportunity to slip past unnoticed, for otherwise a crowd of people might collect nt tho grating, whose presence would put the police on the alert. Thoy And great quantities of money, copper money especially, In the crevices of tho brickwork a little below tho grating, and not Infrequently shil lings, half-crowns and sixpences, with an occasional sovereign or half-sovereign. When "In luck" thoy find mnny arti cles of plate, spoons, ladles, silver-handled knives nnd forks, mugs nnd drink ing cups, and now nnd then articles of Jowclry. Thoy generally also manngo to fill their bngs with tho mora bulky articles fouud In tho search, such as old metal, bones nnd ropes. These they dispose of to marine store dealers and rag-nnd-boncmen, nnd dlvido tho pro ceeds, along with tho coins found, among tho different members of the gang. At one tlmo the regular toshers used to earn from 80 shillings to 2 a week ench, but with tho construction of new sowers, grated at the mouth, their Industry Is not so-easily exercised, and is consequently much less profitable.

I'rlends and relatives of tho poor unfortunate did not hesltato to assert that his mind had become un balanced owing to his Inability to meet certain obligations due as interest on borrowed money nt tho ruinous ntto of 8 per cent, per month. When a uuHtouior approaches one of thu sliylocks, lie Is mntlo to feel ;that money Is scarce, that It Is no fa jror to loan It even at exorbitant in terest, and tho money lender Invari ably shrug his shoulder dubiously, ven If tho security offered Is untitles Itlonable. Should tho applicant want $160 on household furniture tho samo must have cost nt Ieait live times tho amount tleblred. Ho must execute a cut-throat chattel mortgago upon It, signed by his wlfo as well as himself; tfco must Insuro It for half Its valtio nd transfer tho policy to tho lender, and the mortgago Is so drawn that itlio mortgageo practically owns tho se curity, and can tako possession of It, it the borrower falls to pay Interest or principal to tho mlnuto agreed upon. , The usual charge advertised U Wi jior cent, a month. When the appli cant comes to tho point, ho Is Inform ed that "thin especial money belongs to n client," who Insists on tlotiblu that amount. Then the lonncr must make his commission there Is, besides thu insurance charges, a feu for draw ing up tho mortgage, n further feu for recording It, ami till amount, to Bother with tho first mouth's Interest, is deducted from tho gross sum. Tho borrower receives generally about ninety dollars, and Is lucky if by sonio bocus-pociis ho has not been persuad ed to pay an averago of 7 or 8 per cent, for the ensuing six months. These money sharks loan on all kinds Of personal property. Occasionally they cash an exceedingly well Intlometl note ofteuer they loan on watches, aiamonds. silverware. If money Is ad ivnnced on n piano alone, they demand possession, anil hero romes In their new charge for "storage."

Little tilings seem so big to us then, and big things so Impossible to bear! A middle-aged woman not long ago went back to tho village whero sho bad spent her childhood, nnd tliero sho was mado much of on account of tho ad mlrablo standing of her family 1 the community. One tea party after an other was given for ber, and nt each sho was tho happy center of attention. Hut at ono such festivity sho was seen to be manifestly uucomfortnblo, and very early proposed to tho lady who had como with her that thoy should tako their leave. "Why, you'll break up tho party!" said tho other. "Aren't you well?" "Yes," wus tho hesitating answer, "qulto well but oh, there sho comes now!" "Who?" "Mrs. Lnne, Isn't It? Tho lady in tha gray silk. Some ono said It was she. I haven t seen her for twcnty-Qvo years." "Yes, that's Mrs. Lane, nnd she's com ing to speak to you. Why, what makes you so embarrassed?" Tor the guest of honor was flushing nml dropping her glnuco before tho sweet old lady who approached. "Well, my dear," said tho latter; "you don't know he, but I remember you when you wcro n little girl, as pretty as u pink." Then tho visitor suddenly laughed out In the midst of her embarrassment. ' "Hut I do remember you, Mrs. Lane," sho said, "and If I hnd been suro of , meeting you hero, I should never havo ; hnd tho courage to como hero to-day." Everybody stared, nnd tho dear old lady began to look pained nnd troubled. "When I was n very llttlo girl," the I lady went on, still smiling, "I went to I a children's party at your house. Wo i had llttlo tea-tables set out on the lawn, nnd I, shy nnd very awkward, fell against ono nnd knocked It over, with sandwiches, enko and lemonndo! Worse thau all, nt least six plates of your dellcato china wero broken. My heart was broken, too; but when I heard n sosyiint mutter, 'Clumsy!' It seemed to mo the wound never would heal. And it never has, qulto! "Sometimes I wako up nt night nnd remember your broken chlun, and try to think whether I over heard that It was nn old and precious sot. You wero kindness itself at the time, but I hnva always felt that if ever ye met you would know mo by instinct, nnd say to yourself, 'That's the llttlo girl wbo wo so clumsy!'" Tho two women came a step nearer each other, nnd there wero tears In their eyes. Tho older one bent for ward. "You dear child!" said she. "I'd for gotten all about It.
