A Clever Reporter fTh Got . the Best ol the General' Reserve. fKew York Mail and Express. When Gen. Ulysses SL Grant touched terra finna, having completed his famous trip around the world, he made a solemn pledge to his most intimate friends that un der no circumstances would he be inter viewed by any newspaper representative. Thi arrnncrcmpnt was entered into for the purpose of obviating the possiDiuty or mier- i fering with the sale of the book written by ; . well-nigh completed. - Gen.

For two.days the siege was kent 5, but the general feeldf the"' UrU TFinali one of the leading morning papers singled out a man from the city staff and detail ei hTm to get a story out of" "the general at any cost and under any circumstances Proceeding to the Fifth Avenue hotel, the reporter-held a council of war .with Jthe vet eran clerk Carr. "There is no earthly use," said he, in sending up your card. He has already positively declined to see some of. the best known newspaper correspondents in the country. If I were in your place, do ! vou know what I would do? Pd send up my card anvl face-the muaic jiaite .tne roie 01 s . W all street' blood. He'll never discover y6u. " The card was sent up, and word came back that Gen. Grant would see the gentleman. As the storv croes, the scribe weakened at p the knees, but finally braced up and mounted to the suite pf . rooms pccupied by theyoyager round the world." The old soldier was in full dress; Mrs. Grant and a number of ladies were present. The reception-room was redolent wittt the perfumes of the choice exotics that ha l been sent to the hero of Vicksburg. . The . reporter bade him wel come, was introduced to the ladies, and heli a long chat with Gen. Grant, who unex pectedly gave a succinct and interesting ac count of bi voy ige. The following morn- ving the daily, cvmii out with a clean "beat" of a column ani thrae-quarters. It was used all over the country, and the storm that burst over Gen. Grant's head can be more easily imagined than described. Letters and telegrams were thrown at him -by the hun dred, and he was charged by his friends with having violated the sanctity of his. promise. He tried hard tj expl.ua, but it was no use, so finally he came out with a statement to , the effect that he was not aware of having been interviewed by any newspaper man. About six months afterward, the Ninth regiment" was reviewed by Gen. Grant in the Madison Square garden. Before the review - began Gen. Shaler, knowing nothing of course, of the circumstances, introduced the writer of tha article to the eeneraL He,re- peated tfcd nafcnkove'r; and . over, and ( ;th4n;j fixing his piercing orbs on the reporter, rec " ognized him as the one who had caused him so much trouble. He told the whole story to Gen. Shaler. "It has been a wonder to me ever since,' - said he, 'how .this1 young 'mail hereTcould have made so much out of so short a conver sation, and without taking any notes to keep so close to the truth. . You may depend upon it, however, that " I have kept my eyes and ears open since, and he will be a mighty smart reporter who will catch me napping -again. Young Man, Learn a Trade. E. C. Davis in Arkansaw Traveler. During a conversation with a foreman of a large, manufa'-turing .company, he said inr cidentally:- "We have had no American apprentices in two years," and in reply to my interrogation said that American parents were more desirous of their sons learning to despise labor than to adorn it. Looking the matter over carefully I have - reached the -conclusion that he is right It is a pity. Young man, look forward a few years. You have good homes tb-day and . homes where every comfort possible to have is in your grasp. You do not appreciate these things.

Now, if you had learned a trade you would not be obliged to search for $6 positions as clerk, but couli step into places, that are waiting for just such men as you might be, at a fair salary.
