Deau Hkkman and Canada Dill.
Canada BUI one time pawing througu Washington on his way to New York, after a succesiiful gambling trip on the steamboats of tiie western and south ern rivers. The thought struck him that he would stop and see Beau Hickman, the great vug, then world famous as a clever trickster. The two Fports met on the Kteps of the huge marble capitol. Hickman had been pointed out to Can ada Bill by a bootblack. "Is vour name Hickman, pard?" in quired Bill, extending his hand. "The same, sir. Whoeo hand might I have the honor of pressing?" returned Hickman, thinking that his new ac quaintance was a newly-arrived western member of congress. "The hand you grasp, pard," responded Bill, "is one generally known as being more able to deal cleverly than fairly. 1, like yourself, am one of society's razor stros. I am " "Canada Bill, by gum V 'Shake the member two times for I'm glad to see you, Hickman." "How long are you going to stop in town ?" "Stepped off expressly to make your acquaintance." "Are vou known in this city ?" "So."" "Then 311 turn you to good account. How much money llavo you to venture vv. a sure thing?" "Ot S'i.UOO." WlttlYOU: "Light here ; ami Canada Lill pulled iorth two huge rolls of hills. , "if V 'u1-ld A0" hk? !i tlln! lha,mto I Sll'AiO within the next three days -"T, ,VirJ',amSi?1yuriliHV- i " Mi! e'll take a drink and Hick- man led the .nonlaser into -the card- job, and 1 m your man. , ill Ul il i.i.'-iiii'iitiL'ii; nui,'u-iu'.'ui approached each group he Mould bow and say : '(ientlemen,I am collecting monev for a Avidow lady and her three children. They belong to a once-proud but now cast-down family. If you will aid them, i leae ask no further questions, but give what you see tit." In the entire hotel the gentlemanly beggar only received three donations of twenty-live cents each. The others waved him impatiently aside, while some plainly told him he was an impos tor. Before leaving, he said quietly to the three gentleman who had given him money : "This will be repaid yon tenfold to morrow evening at t his hour." , lie then took the address of each, ask ing them to not fail to be in the parlor the next evening to get their money, and cautioned them to speak to nooneof his promises that he was Sir Orlando Mat terson, president of royal London society for the encouragement of benevolence. As a matter of course, before he had got a block away from the hotel every one knew rdl that he had said and done, and all considered him some crazy fan utic. Then a report got about that he was an immensely rich but insane Eng lish nobleman, who spent yearly hun dreds of thousands in seeking those out who were willing to lend aid to the needy, and in rewarding them after wards, so that, according to his cracked brain, the cause of charity might be in a general way accelerated. The next evening he came again, ask ing alms, and everyone was on the look out for him. He lirst singled out the three gentlemen who had given him twentv-iive cents each, and very quietly pased each an envelope containing two dollars and fifty cents, and a small card, upon which was printed: "Give, and you shall receive." "Cast your bread on the waters and it shall be returned to you tenfold." "Lemember the example of Sir Orlando Matterson as you journey through life." Sir Orlando Matterson took seventy three dollars in donations from the house that night, and it was noticeable that those whom his example had thus quickened were very careful that he should have their correct address. The K.iue result followed in each of the scores of hotels nnd sample-rooms which he had initiated on the night before. The third night he, with a solemn face, returned to each donor of the previous night the exact tenfold promised. "It would be a jov which I would con sider cheaply purchased." said he confi dentially to a dozen gentlemen, "if at the cost of half a million dollars I could teach the citizens of this beautiful city to i-e thoroughly generous to the poor." This night lie was like the ticket-seller .t the railroad depot. One, two, five, ten and even twenty dollar bills were shoved at him on all sides, so great had been the awakening in the cause of be nevolence which the example of .Sir Or lando Matterson had aroused. A benign smile hovered about his mouth, and a tear that glittered betimes in his mild, kind eye proclaimed the ioy his soul felt as he shoved bill after bill into his pock ets and gazed with the look of a father upon his converts. "We'll split her now," suggested Bill, as he ceased counting. " Twouldn't give you $12,000," quoth Hickman. "Let it be till to-morrow night. I think I can raise a little 'hush money' on this racket." Next night Beau Hickman went the rounds, ami found groups of expectant converts waiting to see Sir Orlando Mat terson. One at a time, as fast as he rould do so, he would take one after an other of the most prominent gentlemen aside and whisper in his ear: "I have got a little subscription book here which was handed to me by a friend as he took the train this morning for New York. Sorry yon got sold on Sir Orlando Matterson. He's skipped out. That was Canada Bill, the three-card xonte man." "Is that so?" "Sure. Here's the book with your name A it for twenty dollars." "Well, for gracious sake, Beau, don't show that note-book to anyone. And scratch rny name off it, will you?" "Certainly," returned Hickman, ' scratching over tho name wjfh his pen rii. "But, governor, I'm kind o' short to-night. Couldn't you lend mo twenty dollars until to-morrow?" With a wry face, the victim would pull forth his pocket book, and, placing the bill demanded in Hickman's hand, would slip quietly from the hotel to the Btreet. That night the two worthies divided, and tho share of each was over twelve thousand dollars. Both Bean Hickman and Canada Bill, hose tricks on the unwary obtained for them thousands of dollars, died poor and were buried as paupers; and tho moral is, that no matter how much a man makes dishonestly or by trickery, he will sooner or later be found out. and doubt less die a miserable, deserted outcast. ihe next day i v ntccl, V M; Home fort v little naked babies were be- ' f tiw? i" l Hr f w th i raht for a life of toil.

Our first evening, in Havana, says friend, was pe nt in a visit to the cele brated Casino Kspanol, to which, through the kindness of our Cuban friend, Mr. Luis Begueria, we received an invita tion. This club is the oldest and most important of the Western Hemisphere. A membership is looked upon as a great honor, as many of the greatest political movements of Cuba originate within this body. The club-rooms are very ex tensive, consisting of immense rooms for social or political gatherings, a large library, reading, billiards, and card rooms, and lastly, a, room the smallest of all, set apart as n place of instruction for the young sons of members. Our party was gracefully and handsomely received by the Secretary of the club, and after a stroll through the various rooms, we were treated to a lunch in one of the large salons. Signor Begueria is connected with the leading journals of the city (the Diario de la Marina), and to his untiring attentions our party owe the most of their pleasure in Havana. A peculiarity of tho Cuban bed is the lack of a mattress, a substitute for which is a piece of linen duck, stretched across the frame-work, or a woven wire mattress with a thin blanket to prevent the iron from pinching or scratching. Notwithstanding this lo.ss, we managed to gain a good night's rest, and were ready for a jaunt next morning. Tho i otlu ials of our party went to pay their lvi.uiioi.fa fr 41, a f'.inf.ii ii (wnitivil ivliiln the remainder visited a sugar plantation conducted in Cuban fashion.

An :hat thev vowed never to taste the stun" again. Before the day was lone they had all forgotten the resolution, ami seemed to enjoy the sweets of the table with the same relish. Mr. Lawton. an American merchant residing in Cuba, gave us a cordial invi tation to visit his home in the pretty suburban town of Marianao, some eight miles out of Havana. A short ride on the train brought us to the station, and one might easily have imagined oneself in the ancient city of Fonipeii modern ized and improved. The houses are all of one story, with large porticos on the street. They are built of brick, plas tered ami painted in high colors, Hat roofs with white railings around the top and large open windows, protected with iron bars or fancy iron frames, the in variable rule of the country. Long ave nues of thick foliaged Mexican laurels furnish a dense shady drive through the place. The residence of Mr. Lawton is arranged in the form of the letter K, as are most of the houses there. A large parlor opens directly on the portico, immediately in rear of which is a broad piazza, blinded, but overlooking a court yard tilled with llowers, which eerves as a dining-room. In the wings of the bulding are a series of sleeping-rooms, all opening into each other, and also into the courtyard. The ceilings are all very high, and arranged expressly for cool ness. Mrs. Jawton, a most charming lady, formerly from New Y.orkj received us with true American hospitality, seem ing as happy to meet us as if we had known her always. Through her kind ness our ladies received many advanta ges, and we all began to realize how strong the tie of country becomes when separated from the fatherland. God bless her warm and generous heart. May life spent so far from home b brightened by many a friendly visit from her countrymen. A stroll through the crowded parks ami a drive through the brilliantly il luminated streets occupied our evening. Next day our gentlemen went on a shop ping excursion, to which the ladies were not invited. It would be easy to imag ine they returned laden with boxes of cigars lor themselves and all their par ticular friends, you know, at home, tak ing good care to caution their devoted wives before they started out not to in dulge too freely in laces and fancy articles; they were simply extrava gances that could be done without. Cigars will last so long and be so useful, while laces soon go off in smoke and are fontrotten. Never too Late to Learn. Socrates, at an extreme old age learned to play on musical instruments. Cato, at SO years of age, learned to speak the Greek language. Plutarch, when between "0 and SO, commenced the study of Latin. Boccaccio was ,v years of age when he commenced ids 'studies in light lit erature, yet he became one of the greatest masters of the Tuscan dialect Dante and Petrarch being the other two. Sir II wiry Spelman neglected the sciences in his youth, but commenced the study of them when he was between 50 and CO years of age. After this time he became a most learned antiguarian and lawyer. Doctor Johnson applied himself to the Dutch language but a few years before his death. Ludovico Monaldesco, at the great age of 115, wrote the memoirs of his own times. Ogibly, the translator of Homer and Virgil, was unacquainted with Latin and Greek till he was past 50. Franklin did not fully commence his philosophical pursuits till he had reached his oOth year. ' Dryden, in his GSth year, commenced the translation of the Iliad, his most pleasing production. V ronld iro on and cite thousands of examples of men who commenced a new Ktndv. cither for livelihood or amusement, at an advanced age. But every one familiar with the biography of diKtiiiL'tiished men will recollect in dividual cases enough to convince them that none but the sick and indolent will ever say, I am too old to learn. It becomes professed Chiistiansto take rare that they do not dishonor the Gospel and its Author by sulxmlinatlng them to the claims of worldly admira tion. If others come to the place of worship with no higher wishes, let the spirituality of pious hearers "helping together by prayer," so co-operate with the preacher that the worldly spirit sliflli 1)0 awed and hushed by the unworldly influence that pervades the place. The sermon Mill then le in harmony wfth the worship. In both God will r ex alted, and lie will make them a bless ing and a power.
