By «lie Wife of the Wan who Playa
the Hose.
Now that warm weather has come
and ho can find a reason for so doing,
it is amusing to see with what childish
delight the avcrni'O man guts out his i
hoee and proceeds to wash down hi«
sidewalk and sprinkle the street. Ho
has found nn excuse to work olf
toms of the boyish love for fooling
with water that is still a part of his
nature; but he does not go at it as
play ; be hat nn idea that some one
might eee through the scheme, »0 he
begins in a dtlib rate manner and at
tempts to go through it scientifically
After arranging the hose in graceful
circles, he giv. s the sidewalk a gentle
sprinkle, just to dampen it. He then
wets the street in front of the house
•0 that passing vehicles shall not raise
any dust to settle on the sidewalk.
Now he begins the serious part of the
business and goes carefully over every
brick driving the dirt before the
stream from the hose towar-d the gut
ter. If a pebble or & bit of wood is dis
covered he turns the stream on it and
drives it away with the greatest accu
racy. He washes down the trunks of
trees at the curb and washes out the
gutter with particular care. Having
finished the sidewalk ha turns bis at
tention to tho street. It is thoroughly
wetted down. The dirt is washed
from the tops of the cobble
stones, so that tho passer by discovers
that the street is paved; a thing he has
doubted since the am«t commission
cleaned it and failed to uncover the
with his neighbors, with good natured
generosity, he makes the stream of
water describe a parabola over their
pavement and wets it down to the
utmost point to whi-h the pressure
will send the water. When he thinks
pavement. Being on intimate terms
no one is looking, he directs the stream
to a perpendicuinr and thinks what a
pleasant thing a fountain would be in
hie yard, while tbe fal ing water spat
ters tbe tree trunks and clean side
walks with mud. When a person
comes around the corner, the water
suddenly at-sumes its parabolic direc
tion again.
By the time the s'reet is sprinkled to
his satisfaction tho sidewalk has to be
gone over again; so tnis is done as
minutely and copiously as before.
He is tired of the pi \y now, so he
shuts off the water and dregs the hose
into the cellar, getting mud all over
the floor of the batkentry, the kitchen
and the cellar stairs. Then he tells h ;
wife that if every man on the square
would wash down his sidewalk and
sprinkle the street, rs ho had done, it
would save their wives much sweep
ing and dusting, by keeping the dust
down in the street. N x he tramp?
up into the parlor with his gritty f- et
and looks out of the window at hie
completed work with great satisfnc
tion; while the man on the third
square below wonders if ihe volume of
water pouring down the gutter
caused by the bursting of a water
main, or a cloud burst up on the bill.

Q«n. Simon Cameron, who Is now
in his 89th year, was honored with ^
banquet in Philadelphia on ths even
ing of May 14th by the Cameron Club
in celebration of the 25th anniversary
of that org nizatiou. In responding
to the toast to their honored guest
Gen. Cameron replied:
"Gehtlkmks; I hardly know how to
address ydu. I do not think I am
worthy of the many kind words that
have been said of me by my friend,
Gen. Bingham. When this club wae
organized tbe times were trying. Mr.
Lincoln was then looking forward to
the possibilities of a second term, and
it seemed to me, who saw him fre
quently at this period, that ha was
frightened over his chances. He seat
tor me on« day and told me his double
about bis renomination, and I tried to
set them at rest. 1 told him that no
matter how much his opponents in tbe
party might contrive they could not
defeat him, and I finally said : 'I will
tell you an incident in my career dur
ing President Jackson's term
which may help you out. Near
the close of the term of
Présidant Jackson, who, like our prea
•nt executive—Mr. Cleveland—bad
■aid ha only wanted one term, but
afterward changed hia mind. [Laugh
ter ] I was sent for to come to Wash
ington from New Orleans, w here 1 was
at tbe time, to eee President Jackson
and advise with him as to what could
be dona toward securing him a second
term. When I arrived in Washington
and met General Jackson he told me
he wanted me to do what I could
toward helping him to a second term.
He said: 'Cameron will you go home
and get the Lcgialaiura of Penney I ran ia
to page a resolut on asking me to stand
for a second term.' I said; 'No, I can
not do that; I am known as a one
term man. But I can have the reso
lution drawn up in Washington and
get some one to take it to Harrisburg
and have it passed ' [Laughter] This
was done, and in du« time the Legis
lature of Pennsylvania requested Gen.
Jackson by resolution to reconsider
hia previous declaration not to be a
candidate for re election and stand for
another term, which he finally reluc
tantly co aented to do. [Great Laugh
ter '
"I told Mr. Lincoln this «tory, when
he said: 'But what has that to do
with me?' 'I'll show you, Mr. Preai
dent,' «aid I; 'I'll go to Harrisburg and
get the old Jackson resolution copied
and get it passed by the Legislature
requ* sting you to stand for a renomi
oation.' The idea stems 1 to please
him, and, accordingly, w* got the
Jackson resolution and struck out
Jackson's name and all about tbe state
bank, end had it adopted by tbe
Pennsylvania Legislature, and you
knew tha rsat.
