In all there are sev entjr guardiana of the treasury, under a captain and two lieu tenants. Nearly all of the watchmea are men who were la the avar as mere boys, and are therefore now la the prime of life. They are thorough fy trained and reliable. Very few treas ury watchmen hare been discharged for aegtlgetice since -the foundation of the Government. The possibility of a raid pon the treasury is regarded as remote, but the watch force Is disciplined to etaad by for such a raid at any time. Among the old Treasury Department watchmen there Is a tradition that the lamented Jesse James tnado seven die aK. aa JgWSBJ3BJ9K? M V Hfe AT THE MAIX DOOB. tlnct tours, on scren separate occasions, of the Treasury Department, with an eye to business. This legend they relate to visitors, who, after baring handled a package of greenbacks, said to contain $3,000,000. are willing to believe any thing. If Mr. James really did make uch visits, he foAnd his presenco in tantly known to twontyflvo men of ex ceedingly determined appearance, the ma jority of whom had done too much picket and patrol duty during the war to b- caught napping In times of peace, each armed with a persuatlre soron-chambercd army pistol, and none looking as If ho would hesltato the fractional part of a second to use it If occasion required. Once tat United States Treasurer himself, while prowling about the vaults on a mid night tour of personal Inspection, wis challenged and halted, and forced to hoM up both hands, under menace of a IcreleJ rifle, until his captor, who did not know The watch force t dlvldul Into thres i reliefs, like an army guard, only the treas ury wntchman Is on post longer thnti the soldier, I'ach of the night watches is made up of twice the lumber of men In the day watch. A ganj of robbers, to effect an entrance at the main door after ulghtfnll, would have to use a battering ram on the Iron outer door, and by the time they had stove It In they would bo llanked by the entire police force of the District, the soldiery from Fort Myet and the nrsennl and the murine from the barracks, with alt of which forces the treasury has direct alarm connections. There Is something eerie about the big treasury building nt night. Ten minutes before midnight the watchmen of the "mid" watch are all on hand at the main entrance, and they nil make their ap pearance at the Iron door nt once, to the very minute of time, apparently spring ing from the ground. The silence Is only broken by the frequent ringing of the post-register above the head of the lieu tenant of the watch. Their lowered voices seem to fit with the surrounding solemnity. From their manner one might easily Imagine that there was heavy fight ing work cut out for them before dawn a kind of "Just-before-thc-bnttle" man ner that Is distinctly Impressive. Each watchman hat a regular perma nent pott. He It not permitted to smoke, read or write while on duty. lilt busi ness It solely to watch. If he goea to steep and Is discovered by the watch patrol he Is certain to be discharged upon being reported the next day. At the end of each round the watchman touches hit electrical button, which Informs the lieu tenant of the watch nt his desk at the main door that everything Is well with him. The two most Important posts are those which Include within their limits the gold and silver vaults, which are tide by tide. The watchman who looks after the cash room vault Is locked in tho cash room when he goes on post, and patrols tho gallery at frequent Intervals, regis tering each visit to tho door of the vault as he nnstcs the electrical button. Thus, If a robber contrived to get Into the cash room and overcame the watchman, tho cessation of registering reports would In form the lieutenant of the watch that something had gone wrong on that post. Then, by means of tho electrical signals, the lieutenant would quickly assemble a force of watchmen of whatever site he considered necessary. These watchmen would go to the room of the captain of the watch In which, by the way, Is hung, framed, the silk American flag In which Booth's spur caught when ho jumped from the Ford's Theater box after having shot President Lincoln take each a Springfield rifle from the rifle rack, strap on one of the army campaign belts crowd ed full of cartridges, and proceed In a body to the cash room. The watchman who stands guard over the gold and sliver vaults Is locked In an ante-room, the h.tll cud of which Is formed of heavy wire, lending tn the vaults. He remains thus locked up during the cntlro eight hours of his guard tour, and It seated beside the vault doors, lie touch es off his registering upparatut at regu lar Intervals. At the present time ths watchman guarding these vaults baa the responsibility of $140.01)0.000 In sliver coin and 93,000,000 in gold coin on hit hands. The bulk of tho United States gold bullion and coin Is kept at tho sub treasury In New York. The silver it packed In oblong boxes, ten bags to a box. one thousand dollar to a bag. The slteui'o of the tomb reigns In the ante room where the vault watchman putt la his eight hours.

Ingertoll M a youth was not a Baenomeaon of elo tuence. One day hit teacher directed him to dsllver a declamation. Robert selected a poem beginning! A Utile MM tttt on too telegraph wire, And flitters and chltters and folds Its wings. He appeared before hit audience, and be gan boldly: A little bird tits on tho tslsgrspb wire Then he forgot tho rest He tried It agalm A little bird sits on tho telegrsph wire That was all he could remember. Once tnoro he thundered: A little bird sits on tho telegrsph wlro and fled from the stage. He laughs about It now and says: "That was forty or fif ty years ago. I guess the little bird Is sitting on the wlro yet." Talmage. T. DeWltt Talmage aa a boy did sot show evi dence of a theological turn of mind. On one occasion ho waa very rettlett In church, and hit parents had grave doubti of hit paying much attention to the sermon. The preacher spoke on the words : "An angel came down from heaven and took a live coal from tho al ter." Reaching homo tho parents atked their ton: "Did you ' bear the sermon?" "Yet." "Can you repeat tho text?" "Of course." "Let ua hear you." Young Talmage tri umphantly quoted: "An Ingun camo down from Now Haven and pultod a live colt from tho halter." Irvine. Henry Irving once took part In a achool dialogue, entitled, "Tan Little Philosopher," la which a lad Is ques tioned by n benovolent old gentleman. Anton,? the questions asked are the following: ' ' "What do yon do when It rains?" "I get under a trea for shelter." "And what do yon do when you are hungry?" "I sometimes rat a raw turnip." Irving studied hit lines for weeks. Tho house was crowded The dialogue progressed satisfactori ly until tho question was asked: "What do you do when It rains?" When lnlng proudly replied: "I sometimes cat .a raw turnip." Dobow. Chauncey Depew has great renown a an after-dinner speaker, and is never at a loss for a good .story or a witty retort. There Is a great deal of preparation about Depew's jokes, bnt many of hit bright taylnga are spontane ous and the result of the Inspiration of the moment. When n boy Dcpew wot a slow and exas perating reader. One day ho was all tangled up over the phrase, "My yoke Is easy and. my burden Is light." Hit teacher thundered at him: "Read that again, sir; you're all wrong." Chauncey dashed nt tho phrase with great vigor and shouted: "My burden It easy and my joke is light." In the laugh which followed the teacher's anger ovaporated. Roosevelt. Theodore Roosevelt was not a fluent orator when young, and old playmates delight to re late hit experience at a school exhibition with that stirring poem be ginning: At midnight in hit gtjsrd ed tent The Turk lay dreaming Ing of ttieViur When (Ireeee, her knees In supplltneo bent, Bliould tremble at bis power. Roosorelt got as for at When Greece, her knees Then his memory fail ed, and ho repeated: Greece her knees His memory stub bornly refused to work. Ouco more he shouted desperately: Greece her knees Tho old professor looked over his specta cles and encouragingly remarked: "Oreaso her knees once more, Theo dore; perhaps she'll t" then." A Fight in the Trnnnvnnl. Tho stories of lighting between Boeri and English In Koitth Africa have a strong resemblance to those of Indian lighting In tho old days In New V.u gland. Bullets are exchanged between excellent marksmen concealed behind stones and bushes, and each bullet has, under such circumstances, an Immense value. Tho Capo Mercury says that Mr. Sampson, one of tho Johannesburg "re formers," still In prison at Pretoria, Is the hero of a famous combat with old Botha, a Boer fighter of renown, In tho Boer war of 18S1 Sampson and Botha found themselves behind stones on a level plain, shooting nt each other. Sampson presently made suro that ho had hit Botha and raised his head a little, when n bullet plowed his neck. "My man is dead," exclaimed Botha, and exposed himself. At the sanio In stant n bullet from Sampson's rifle struck him. "This time I've got lilmt" shouted Sampson, and raised himself up, but n bullet graced his sldo and lie dropped. Botha now had no doubt that ho had ended his nntagonlst, and jumped up on his feet, only to bo again laid low. Though tho men wcro now past fight ing, with two bad wounds apiece, both recovered, nnd when Sampson settled In tho Ttnnsvaal they became great friends, nnd often chaffed each other about this encounter.

To observe tho fashion with which the night watchmen "cover" their posts, it might easily be thought that the n.rir service Is in constant receipt of infotm-i-tiou as to contemplnted treasury robber ies. Vot nover a doltar has over been ken from the treasury by force. A sneak thief once got In bis work to th ex lent of $00,000 in bills, which he expert ay plucked from one of the tables In tho Tedemntlon division. But thcro has never cen a hold-up. The secret service knows that many celebrated cracksmen, Includ ing "Little Jimmy" Hope, who successful ly pulled off the great Manhattan Bank robbery, have from time to tlrao contem plated the conversion of a few mll'lons of treasury money to their privat use, but they all thought better of It. Tbty de cided the undertaking to be of too :olossil a character. Down to tho Incumbency of Secretary I-'olgcr there would, It U claimed, linvo been no great difficulty for nccouir.llshed ami nervy cracksmen of tho flrtr r.iak to h.ivo dono a bit of nlghtwork In tho big marble cash repository of the Govern ment. When Sir. Folgcr took tho reins of tho treasury the watch actually de pended on common police whistles. He completely changed and reorganised thn system. An elaborato electrical falarm system was introduced, tho force of .watchmen was greatly amplified, and tho old iron safes were replaced by ton mod ern steel affairs with Intricate combina tions. Tho gold and sliver vaults were sriven steel casings around their common shells of masonry, and fitted with tlrao locks. If there wero no wntch force on constant guard at tho Treasury Depart ment, however, burglars could do about as they choso with the safes in the Treas ury Building. Tho safes are as good as any made, but oven manufacturers of safes are compelled to reluctantly admit that tho safe has not yet been dovlsod that the modern cracksman cannot get into. An expert manipulator of safe combina tions was summoned to tho treasury from New York not long ago to open a safe that declined to respond to its figures. ,Tho expert opened the safo In half n minute. Then ho made a tour of the building, nnd opened every one of tho Salts. There was not one. of them that he Id not get into within fourteen minutes after making the first turn of the combi nation handle. Ho modestly stated to the officials nceoTnpanjins him that he did not amount to much n n safo opener, and that there weio cracksmen nt large who might have done c penetrating the six tons of steel, may be heard. The patrol passes tho cage very frequently, and somehow It Is hard to throw off the Impression thnt this patrol ling watchman Is a prison turnkey, ths chief of a death watch, keeping his eye upon the warder, who. in his turn, inces santly embraces within his view a crim inal passing his last night upon earth. Tho sub-basement of the treasury at mid night is calculated to render the most proalc and phlegmatic man into a mor bidly Imaginative person. Two or three times a month, m an average, treasury employes In chnrgo of safes In their respective divisions forget to lock them up at tho close of tho day's business. It Is the duty of tho watch patrol not only to xco that none of th s.ifes are open, but to try them to seo that they nro locked. When ono of thoso patrolmen happens upon nn unlocked safe. ho inuneiiiatciy iniorms tne lieutenant )r the watch, who without making any at tempt to loik tho safe, places his seal over a point covering tho door and th frame, and stations a special watchmun to seo that It Is not tampered with.

Heroism and modesty provorblally go hand lu bund, but thoro nro fow -mow striking examples of tho combination that that afforded by tho captain of a wrecking tug In Now York harbor. Ills own account of tho affair was thus sot dowu In tho tug's log: "Jan. 30. Loft Jersey City 7 n. m. Ico running heavy. Capt. Joo stopped leak lu forry-boat." Mr. F. Hopklusou Smith, lu his "Day at Laguerro's," tells tho story moro fully. Tho HoboUen ferry-boat was stopped, midway of its early pasingo, by tho eo pack. At this Jiimtnro nn ocean tugboat crashed into her side, cutting n Y-shaped gash bolow tho water-lino. A panlo ensued among passengers and crow. Just tueu mo writ-King i"s -" llanco ran alongsldo, aud Capt. Joo Smith jumped on board. Ho dropped Into tho engine-room, mot tho cngluoor half-way up tho laddor, compelled him to return, dragged tho mattresses from tho crow's bunks, stripped off blankets, racks of clothes, overalls, cotton wnsto and rags of car pet, cramming thorn into tho great rent left by tho tug'a cutwator until tho spaco of each brokon plauk was re placed except one, Through and over this spaco tho wator still combed, del uglBtf the floors aud swashing down betwoen tho gratlugs into the hatd bo low. "Another mattress, quick! All gono? A blankot, then carpet anything! Quick, for God's ssko!" 'It was useless. Everything, even to tho oil rags, had been used. Llttlo by llttlo tho water gained, bursting out lelow, then on ono side, only to bo ro calked nnd only to rush In ngain. Oaptnlu Joo stood a moment as if undecided; then deliberately toro down tho top wall of cnlklug ho had so caro fully built up, and boforo tho engineer could protest had forced his own body Into tho gap, with his arm outside, lovel with tho drifting leo. An hour later tho disabled ferry-boat every soul on board. When they lifted Captain Joo from the wreck bo was unconscious and barely alive. Tho wator had frozen his blood nnd tho floating ico had torn the flesh from bis protruding nrm from. shoulder to wrist. When tho color began to creep back to his checks, ho opened his eyes nnd said to tho doctor who was winding tho bandages: "Was any of them babies hurt?" Itcmarkablo Pigs. When tho pig Is not only a domestic nnlnial, but a family friend, nt ho ap pears to bo la the Marquesas Islands, ho dovolops unsuspected cleverness. "In tho South Seas," ono of Robert Louts Stovcnson's last books, gives many Instances) by way of proof. "Many Islanders live with their pigs as we do with our dogs," Mr. 8tr-eiisou observ ed; "both crowd around tho hearth with equal freedom, and tho Island pig U a follow of activity, enterprise and sense. "He husks his own coconnuts and I am. told rolls them into-the sun to burst; bo la tho terror of the shepherd.

"It was told us in childhood that pigs cannot swim; I have known one to leap overboard, swim live hundred yards to shore, and return to the house of his original owner. "I was once, nt Tautlra, a plgniaster on a considerable scale. At tint. In my pen, tho utmost good feeling prevailed. A llttlo sow with a bollyaeb came and appealed to us for help In the manner of a child; nud there was one shapely black boar, whom wo called Cathollcus, for ho was a particular present from tho Catholics of tho village, and who early displayed the marks of courage and friendliness.

Tho landlord of a country hotel sees n good deal of tho natural "crankiness" of liumau nature, Tho proprietor of n house In a Malno village, whero tho summer visitor Is tho chief source of In como,,tellH tho following story: People are generally queor about tholr eating, so I dou't mind much about somo of thorn wanting nothing for for brenkfnst nnd thon a hearty mem by 11 o'clock and a luuch at threo and supper at sovou.

A few years ago the directors of an Academy of Flno Arts In ono of our cities wore dismayed nt finding that one of tho most valuable pictures In their galleries waa gone. It had been taken from the frame at night, and a cop substituted. Reward was offered, and search mado for Its return, but lu vain. Some years later nn artist found the picture In tho tnvern of a town In Can ada, where the thief had sold It. He telegraphed to tho directors, two of whom at once came to him. But they could hardly bo made to believe that tho grimy canvas, In a broken woodeu frame, hanging In tho dark corner of a bar-room, was tho great masterpiece. Tho artist, however. Insisted upon Its genuineness, and It was taken back with him. He cleaned It and placed It In Its proper frame, surrounded by a background of maroon drapery, every beam of light skillfully tempered so a to bring out Its beauty, and then brought in thn directors. They burst Into loud exclamations of delight and welcome. The artist alone could detect the 'great picture In Its sor did surroundings, but even the careless passer-by recognized It when properly framed and hung.
