And leave himself till last.

CHailTOPHBR SHAPPY, CABMAN.
ChristopherShappy was ''low." "Low
Iness" and gloom hung liko a thunder?
cloud over tho very atmosphere that sur?
rounded him; it fluttered in despair from
every rog iu his battered clothes; it tore
afc the heart in his attenuated frame, and
bolted through rents of his battered hat,
? very carnival of wretchedness. Scated
Sn his box at 12 p. m., the rosy lights of
great taloon glowed down npon bim,
and the hum of many voices poured into
bis ear, but the listless Jehu twirled his
remnant of a whip, and chewed the cud
of bitterness unmoved. The air fairly
rollioked with the blatant discord of the
can-can, and. re-eohoed with the eries of
the keno'nan; there was a rattle of
"chips," a clink of glasses, and a tumult
of calls from the game'keepers; but,
gazing at the revelers, he only felt
"lower" and gloomier. Kit Shappy was
"busted." The pristine glory of a onco
?wonderful vehicle struggled in the dark?
ness of total eclipse; Lively Turtle, the
objeet of his idolatry, tbe whilom chal?
lenger of universal envy and admiration,
hod descended through different stages
of seediness and short rations to a skele?
ton. Long, lean and lank, in a coat
scarce thick enough for a new-born colt,
with'startling ribs, and great knobs of
joints,tho pioturojof equine misanthropy,
wasn't calculated to inspire courage. His
owner looked wistfully at the ragged cur?
tains, the damp unwholesome cushions,
and in the general aspect of ricketiness
and decay; visions of a phantom horse
and shadowy oab, crushed out every
hope. The tide of prosperity was fairly
and strongly at the ebb, and whatever
?evidence of wealth or respectability tho
learly days of the voyage might have
Ishown, he was now in the chops of the
?channel and on his beam ends. Yellow
never, sweeping like a simoon, broke on
[his fumily at the very outset, and (hat
'atress of bad weather told.
"When a youngster of ten, wakes up on
sultry August morning, to find his
hearest of kin in two yellow corpses, and
all his worldly wealth represented by a
yellow half sovereign; when he looks
for the last time on luxury, through the
tear-dimmed vista of a crowded cemete?
ry; and turns like a yonng bear with all
his troubles bofore him, to a world fur
better supplied with kicks than ha'peuce;
one would not expect much eagerness ou
the part of the underwriters, or predict
very prosperous voyugc. Cockle shells
Kon't often Jive in a sea like this. Tho.
?nod-shark of a landlord who cast him
adrift, and the swells and lubbers jostling
10 his wake, didn't even hope for it.
Bbappy, however, was not of the swamp?
ing sort. Piratical, ns the litt'e craft
soon became, and squally as the weather
very often proved, thia dingy on the
ocean of lifo rode it out. Ho made a
short cruiso in tho newspaper business,
with mnoh piping to punishment, und
Little piping to grub. He enjoyed the
usual knock-down arguments of newsboy
bullies, and tbo usual throwing of dice
K*n street corners. Ho sat in the cock?
lofts of the theatres and gloated over the
"shivering of timbers" in "Black Eyed
Susan." Of his moral training, perhaps
the least that is said is best. A believer
to the transmigration of souls, and the
IpurlDiner of surreptitious naps on a
.Moor-sill, very rarely sail in tho same
?boat. Seated on his box now, Shappy
?conldn't explain the Apostolic succession
pf his lifo depended on it.
AU this, however, didn't prevent a
?[brief voyage in tho tumbler washing
?business, with one meal a day from the ll
o'clock lunch and plenty of exercise in
setting up ten-pins. Though various
Bruises brought returns to neither crow
nor owner, Shappy clung to his ooin.
Tied by a string to his pipo-stem of a
neck, the neck grew brown and bearded,
and the breast that held it thick with
hair; but the money was cherished liko
a Persian amulet. It might be two dol?
lars and a half to others, but to Shappy
it was fortuno, family, the link that
bound him to tho past. Another incident
in that reckless career gave, the story a
grimmer significance, and made tho
luckless man olntch nervously athis reins.
|Post the era of tumbler waehing and fur
into a time wheu a* lunch boy und pan?
tryman, ho donned tho slop-shop jacket
and trowsers, there appeared on that
vagrant horizon a brown-haired, bright
eyed, slip-shod girl. Who wonders in
that hopeless cruise he filched and
boarded for her sake? Who wonders
that those two waifs, battliug for exist?
ence in the ever whirling eddies, joined
bands to breast tho waves together? For?
tune, be sho never so coquettish, some
timen wears a smile for the yonng, nnd,
thanks to her tenderness, a day arrived
Iwhon Dolly, trioked ont in spick and
?pan new maslin, went a 'prentice to
11 milliner, and Shappy, in a stunning
surtout and wonderful oassimeres, con?
ducted her with much spiritand grace to
public parks and Sunday festivals.
Charmed, apparently, at the wonder of
ber works, the capricious dame even
ftearni J with greater benignity. Oae
ay Jim Saarbold, gambler, struck a
tretik of lack on faro. Ho won two
pagne bought, fofjBnftiitli didn't drink,
bot many ? poor devil had a jubilee on
the strength of tMttanok, and among
the number, Christopher Shappy. There
was no particular Reason for it, bat Jim
rather liked bim, and showed his liking
by |bnying the youth a/ horse and eab.
It's hardly necessary to say that house?
hold fnrmture soon followed, and that
Dolly and the cabman, long conscious of
tbe misery of living apart, concluded to
be miserable no longer. For six happy
months tho supply of beefsteak and
onions was unbounded. The attractions
of the new outfit seemed irresistible, and
vague thoughts of a cottage of their
own stole upon tho minds of tho simplo
pair. It needn't bo supposed in this
prosperity the half sovereigu was ne?
glected. The talismanic figures C X C
over the 1837, might mean nothing or
something, but they'd held on to it too
long ever to giro that up. Alas! for the
.?tul?y of human wishes, though they
kept their luck, Jim Scarbold didn't.
A man don't break a bank ovcry day
iu tho year, and don's play each ono of
tho 3G5 without some times being
"cleaned out." He "spouted his spark,"
"shoved up his ticker," and even left
with bis "uuelo" moro articles of cloth?
ing than was comfortable in winier; but
it was no uso. When a fellow strikes a
run of bad luck bo must stick to it. He
had given Shappy thu nag and wagon,
so the lad must "como down," and that
was till of it. It might be mentioned he
came down accordingly; that fir ht by
fifties, then iu twenties, and, finally, in
tens and fives; their little savings rapidly
melted away, Beefstenk aud biscuits
put the best faco on it, and held out
bravely for a time; bat ibero carno au
era whou oven bacon and grcons trem?
bled; when the cheapest of necks and
soup-bones looked nervous, and the
grocer's pass book itself shrank back
aghast. There cumo a timo-that very
night-when the last ten-dollar note was
swallowed ap, and Jim Scarbold that
very minute-was losing it at faro. Los?
ing it? Of course bo was. Twenty
minutes ago, with the noto iu his hand
aud a Derringer in his pocket, the gam?
bler entered the saloon. Ho was bent
on money or blood. Tbero would be a
row, a sudden putting out of the lights,
and a call for tho police; nnd Shappy sat.
on his box, unconsciously to himself,
uwaiting that result. The fracas didn't
prove so very startling after ull. Thero's
nothing like being used to them; it saves
noiso and awkwardness. Men at thoir
games, twenty steps away, didn't even
move, and as for the people in tho keno
room up stairs, not ono in twenty over
beard of it. Thero was an oath, a cry,
a table turned over, a couple of pistol
shots-and Jim Scarbold, with a Der?
ringer waving above his head, and a
bullet through his lungs, reeled out on
the pavement. Little Dolly, who half
an hour afterwards opened tho door for
them, and who, horrified at tho blood,
streamed candle grease from tho collar
to the hem of her night gown, felt more
dismay than all the others put together.
Thero was littlo sleep in the Snappy
household that night, and lit tl - work for
the Turtle the next day. When a great
white-faced man. with a great white
breast aud a round red bolo in tho mid?
dle of it, lies trembling between lifo and
death, there's but little other work for
any one. As for Jim Scarbold, no such
change in tho luck could ever worry him.
The doctor carno aud went, took off
steaming applications and put on cool
ones, but not a groan or a stir ever indi?
cated whether tho patient was easier or
not. Ono cau't buy medicine, jellies,
soups and doctors'visits for nothing. It
costs, eveu for a glass of ice-water; and
when spring chickens, orcngesand fresh
laid eggs come into tho bargain, it costs
more. A man can't nurso the Eick ami
drive a cab, too. Tho Turtlo stood idly
oatiug his head oft", aud tho daily apolo?
gies for meals grew meogerer aud ruea
gerer; while relic lifter relio went in
dainties for Jim Scarbold. Tho sufferer
was nota man to fret over a saerif.ee like
this. The food suited him and ho ute,
or didn't, and it was roughly shoved
away; but not ono word of gratitude
escaped those pallid lips. Dolly, occa?
sionally, was complimented by a grunt
of grim politeness, but even these courte?
sies were rare, and finally cousod alto?
gether. One dreary day dragged after
another, and the Hour in tho cabman's
bin was reduced to a dust. Piece after
piece of tho modest furniture passed to
tho keeping of "Moses," but in spite of
tho pawning, Scarbold, only seemed
longer and thinner, and moro ghastly.
The Doctor looked gravo, stared savagely
at the army of creditors and ordered a
bottlo of Port wine. Thero wero red
eyes for Dolly|ihat day, aud a pallid face
enough for Shappy. Tho ignorant feel
a veneration for trifles sometimes, which
no reasoning ?an dispel. Nover came a
blow with moro crushing effect than that
prescription on those unhappy people
Plucked by the sobbing Dolly from the
breast of its rueful proprietor, tho so?
vereign, that household Joss of their
simplo hearts, was yielded up a sacrifice.
It was a mild, breezy March morning
when that happened; the air was balmy
aud ireh, and tho sun-rays streaming
through thc fluttering curtains might
bavo lighted tho wings of angels instead
of wretched men and women. On I hf
still ness of that retired quarter brokt
tho glad .sounds of children at play, noil
even tho cluck of the cork and bubbling
of tho generous wiue, sounded joyuui
Kneeling geutly over him, Dolly Blip
ped lier white arms under the pillow. A
deadly pallor ?.wept across his bice,
and then it lighted with almost a smile
There was au effort to riso, a look ol
pain and exhaustion, and thc giant frurai
fell back. A .heavy breathing, a strug
gie for articulation, a low murmur-"tin
game is np, Dolly, the last turn is called ;'
and Jim Scarbold, to use bis own words
"handed io his cheeks." There came i
clnster of policemen, and then the Coro
ner and doctor, and post mortem exami
Potter's field. Dolly bang np * shabby
piece of crape, sod Shappy walked miles
that day for a few flowers. Tho misera?
ble swamp flags strewn opon tho on
painted lid, Were its' only ornament, and
tho two friends, dressed in their best,
who followed the cart that carried him
away, were the only ones who saw, or
oared to see, the grave of Jim Scarbold.
The last drop was taken, and the blood?
sucker gone; but though whirling in the
downward carrent was easy enough, to
turn up stream proved quito another
matter. Tho lively Turtle hadn't im?
proved by it, nor for that matter tho cob
either; aud tho pitiless mouths of their
creditors were always crying to be lilied.
Suspicions glares were directed at the
tables nud chairs; horse traders dropped
iu to take a look at the nag, aud a car?
riage-maker to estimate the repairs on
tho cab. Fluttering through the place
like a frightened bird, poor little Dolly
was ut her wits end; aud us for Snappy,
trouble and anxiety bad changed him to
tho automatic embodiment of despair.
Staring at tho unhappy couple lay the
wretched effects (his death-bed bequest)
of Jim Seurbuld. A beavor over-coat,
with a monte ?leek, aud soiled pocket
handkerchief in tho pockets; half n
dozou seedy remnauts of shirts, nu
ivory chip, a pair of tronscrs, with twe
or three struy nickels in the fob pockets,
a taruishod porte monnaie, containing
thr?o puwu duplicates of remore date,
uud stuck iu a eoruer, a whole ticket ol
tho Louisiana State Lottery. When thi
red fliig waved, and tho constable, witl
a dreadful air of proprietorship, pro
claimed tho sule, relics liko these would
naturally hud their way to Kit's pocket
and they did.
On a Friday, that unluckiest of days
tho crush esme, nud their little all wu:
swallowed at a gulp. Lively Turtlo weni
for a song, and tho cab didn't bring tin
prico of old iron. With a few rugs o
clothing, und fewer paltry dollars, turnet
over by tho law, Dolly and Shappy
faded iuto a dimmer retirement. Mei
were winning their thousands in thosi
days, aud ho was without a nickel. Ou
of work, out of spirits, aud almost ou
of hope, lifo generally grows retrospec
tive, und Kit's was no exception to th
rule. Counting closely tho fragments o
the wreck, Jim Scarbold'sticket, thong!
yot undrawn, was perhaps tho mos
doubtful urticlc of his assets.
As leisure, under tho present conditio]
of affairs, was tho only luxury in whicl
ho could indulge to au uulimited extent
bo wandered into tho lottery room, nm
with moro curiosity than perhaps any
thing akin to hope, watched the monc
tannins turning of the wheels. Ho gaze
vacantly at the gaping populace, and lit
teued callously to their shouts as th
numbers were called-772, $500; 1,003
?5,000. A yell broke from tho multitude
and the room was in a buzz.
1,837, $20,000. Another yell, loude
and shriller thuu thu first, burst fort!
as if by irresistible impulse. Tho root
swam before his eyes, aud leaping dow
tho stairs, he hurried homo. A rush n
tho door, a hasty clutch at the tuwdr
portmonaie, and great God! Ile had uc
beeu mistaken. Jim Scarbold's lotter
