LIFTED INTO THE ALLEY.
The 3f#mbcr "Who Was Tos» PreUy to I?e maiu with tli« Liiu^-Kilu Club. "If Clarence De Melville Bungs am present wid us to-night, I should likt to spoke to him," said Brother Gardner as the Lime-Kiln Clnb meeting opened Brother Bungs tv<-s on the back ruv\ with a looking-glass in his hands and a new brand of hair-oil on his hair, lie rose up with a scrape and a bow f made a great spread of a blue silk handker chief, and finally stood before the President's desk. "Brudder Bungs," resumed the old man, "I reckon you am de purtiest member of the Lime-Kiln Club. Ion puts ile on yer ha*r, wax on ver mous tache, an' de perfume on yer clothes re minds me of de wild roses of Y arg in nv. Yes, vouam de purtiest an' sweetest one of de lot." "Yes, sah," replied the brother,while his face betrayed the fact that he was tickled half to death, "But-—by de way, Brudder Bungs, what am your present bizness ?" "I'ze out of a job jist now, sah." "When you work how much do you airn ?" "As high as sebhen dollars a week, sah." "Jist so. Am dat suit o' clothes all paid fur?" . "No, sah." "An' you am how many weeks be hind on yer board?" "Not ober six, sali." "An' you owe dis lodge $3 dues." "Yes," sah." "An' you owe members here as much as $20 fur borrowed money." "I'ze borrowod some, sail." "Brudder Bungs, I'ze had sonu 'sperience wid purty men, an' I nebber seed one yet who wasn't a fraud on de word manhood. When a man sots out to be purty all de boss sense leaves liis head. No man kin labor and le purty too. He darf o' lets work alone. He beats his board, his tailor, his shoe maker, an' all his friends. He looks killin', an' smells like a cologne factory, but lie doan' pay up. Ebory stnile beats somebody outer 25 cents, an' every giggle costs somebody half a dollar. I'ze had my eye on you fur some time. " "Yes, sah." "Six months ago you had steady work, good pay, respectable clothes, an' was outer debt. You sot out to be purty, an' to-day you wouldn't sell fur nuff to pay yer debts. You smell aw ful nice, but you owe a $20 boaru-bill. Your lia'r curls beautifully, but de tailor am whistling fur liis money fur dat suit. You smile like a buttercup an' raise yer hat like a Chesterfield, but yer butes ain't paid fur!" "Ize gwine to squar* up, sah." "Maybe you is, Brudder Bungs, but it am too late, so fur as tlis club am* oonsarned. Secretary!" "Yes, sah." "Scratch de name of Brudder Clar ence de Melville Bungs off de roll !" "She's dun scratched, sali." "Janitor !" "Yes, sah." "Escort dis pusson to de alley doah ! He am too purty to remain lieah wid ns. He am gwine out owin' us for dues, an'—well, nebber mind. There was no need to post the Jan itor. Every one could picture him ms he cleared a space to swing his right leg, and if anybody doubted tuat.

It seemed to be lit rally sprinkled with glittering dia mond pa ints, and the round cape (pel .< vine shaped) that covered his shoul ders and chest nearly to the waist crowned the effect completely. This is the mosji me and wonderful part of the royal court costume, being made ly from the l reust fe 'tilers of the famous Bouta American bird called the i-oucancC These plumes are a viv idly bright orange color, fine as silk and glossy as satin, overlaying each ( tlier until they seem to be the verit able skin of the bird himself. It is said that it lakes one hundred birds to furnish sufficient feathers to cover this part of the dress. Over this feathered » ape wa* flung a costly necklace of diamonds' and emeralds of immense uze, and close around the - throat was tied a rich lace cravat, with wrist-falls to match. The crown was weighted with gems; gre at d iamonds inserted in the bands of gold, interspersed with emeralds and ru ies and pearls, incased a, cap of vel vet that seemed to press'heavily on the loyal head. The scepter was gold, lugher than himself, and tipped with emblems. The.sword, passed through the belt, was completely etadded with pear's and diamonds.
