BlijL NYE MEETS A CITIZEN.
tie Draws From Him 3 Sad Story of Modern Journalism. From the -Yea* York HI irltl, Qji board a day coach of the great trunk line running from tiio Battery via Sixth avenue to Harlem 1 fell in the other day with a highly cultivated old gentleman who now resides in Brooklyn. Together we en joyed the delightful stretch of dark-red scenery and advertisements which greet the enraptured eye along this great scenic route. Together wo inhaled the thousand odors of hot, sour alleys, and damp cellars, and together we looked into the second story rooms where poverty lay panting in the awful heat that bad accumulated all (jay anil now shut, down with the night like a stifling garment. He said something and then I said some thing, and before long we were conversing with each other. A grout many conversa tions have no doubt originated m this way. Incidentally we got to talking about the press and what u great influence it wielded, and so forth, and then lie said if I would never mention his name he would tell mo of an incident that occurred some years ago when he first came to New York. He said: "I generally aim to let t he papers alone if they’ll let me alone, but when I first came here a friend of mine brought me n slip that he hud chit out of a prominent morning paper in which my name was used in a way that made mo mad. While there was no gross misstatement of facts, my name was handled in a way I despise, and" so 1 went right down to the office of the paper. Be fore I wont I told my wife about the piece ami that I was going down to see about it. •she saw that I was excited and she became alarmed. She hung on to me quite a while and said she wished I wouldn’t go. We had always got along so well, and since we had been married 1 had never killed anybody, and she wished I would take her advice and uot go, but I was thoroughly indig nant and mad. So I went down, and at the counter 1 asked to see the editor. “The young man at the window where I went was counting the words in a ‘Want’ advertisement, and it was a long time be fore 1 could get bis eye. Then he said in a brief, cold way that the editorial rooms were on the fifth floor. I did not like his way, and I would have been glad to lick him if I could have got over into his cage, but I couldn’t. Then T went to the eleva tor. I was going to get in, but the elevator hoy, who weighed about nineteen pounds, put his hand against my person and gently pushed mo out. “ ‘You can’t go upstairs without stating your name and your business and who you want to see. Here is a card that you can fill out ’ “I knew my own name, of course, and could put that on the card; also my busi ness. but 1 didn’t know tho name of a blamed man on the paper. All 1 could do was to say that 1 wanted to see ‘the editor.’ That was a kind of a general statement, but I thought it would bo all right. Meantime the elevator had made several trips, and I could feel my collar getting soft. I was still mad, blit I had to control myself, so I asked the elevator boy if he would mind t.'.k.ug that up to the editor, and I gnvo him the card. “He said I would have to be more explicit, If 1 wanted the city editor, or the marine editor, or the literary editor, or the birth and death editor, or the polo edi tor, or the scrapping editor, I would find them in, but, the managing editor and the telegraph editor and tho night edi tor and the mirth editor and the bathing ed itor were all out. “I did not know who I ought to see, but I got desperate and sent up my card to the scrapping editor. It was a wild thing to do, but I did it, for I thought I could see him, and if I did not feel like lighting him I could postpone it the way other pugilists did “I had to wait quite awhile before I could see the fighting editor, for he was busy with some other men who, I presume, had dropped in to lick him early, so as to be home for lunch. “Finally I went in and found a small, good uatured man that I could have han dled without any trouble, but when I stated my business he said that it was not in his line at all, but that I ought to go to the city editor. By that time tho city editor had gone to lunch. I waited for him till I c'i so hungry myself that I thought I voli tall apart. “When he came he had about nineteen men to talk to all at once for an hour or so; then he let me in and I told him what the trouble was. He didn't remember any such story in the paper as I spoke about, but would find out about it and see what re jiorter handed it in. Meantime he would advise me to write out a statement of my side of the case and leave it there. He would investigate the matter when the re porters got in in tho evening. “1 went to a long table and wrote most all the afternoon on a piece which was not so scathing when I got through with it as I thought, it was going to bo, so 1 tore it up. Then I wrote another one. It was quite bitter, but not so bitter as I wished it had been. It had tamo places in it where it seemed to all flatten out and fail to get there. I never suffered mentally so much in my life und now and then when I wiped toy brow ou the tail of iny linen coat I could see that the city editor seemed to enjoy it. By dusk I hod completed oil article that was carefully written, aud yet 1 did not expect that, it would be copied very much. It was inclined to be ornate in its system, and still there were words in it like ‘eggrogious,’ for instance, that I didn’t fool sure l had spelled right. It was now night, and 1 went home, leaving my article for the morning [wiper and feeling proud that I was getting mixed up with literature. “My wife was anxious to find out if I had any 1 tody’s gore on iny hands before I went into dinner, hut I convinced her that my heart, iyu still pure ami guiltless, but that 1 had written a piece for the paper that would •wnP l,| wn in the morning. ‘Hint night I didn’t sleep much, and in the morning 1 got up early and waited around the corner for u paper. 1 looked it through hurriedly, but didn’t find iny piece, •nest everything else was there but that, however, it was crowded outl Probably ‘•lie mush-und-niilk-sociable editor had a piece that he wanted to run in in placoof it, and owing to his influence bo had succeeded. 1 was greatly irritated, f had lost one day "’"in m\ business, hut I decided to go down t > the office again and see what, the matter 'vas. “1 his time I got to the city editor at once, put it w as another man. The city editor I hud wen the day before had gone to Coney fund, so I hud to go through the same Jhing all over again, 110 thought 1 hud better write a statement that would show hiv side of the case, und then he would usk tpc reporters who it was that, had handed in l “> story and we would have it rectified tonic way. "He was a very pleasant man, but I told ""i 1 had spent the day before writing a ted hot rebuke which had not been printed, 1 id I could not give my whole time to k'tinmlirai. | told him that 1 was in tho ; ’’ ,'ii am Imiiiuess aud that I hail been at “" icd [,y the paiKir and wanted to lie set '■Hut, but I couldn't come down there every U: ‘.v sud take the brunt of editing that I 'per, specially when my stuff didn’t get fruited. "but he said if I would write another "otenmut lie would promise that it should yd hi, overlooked, and said that as 1 was ’ ■> or now I would no doubt write a better '" '■e. Ho I was fool enough to write toother flapdoodle card for the pajier. It •' k me till M:3O, and as near as I call re p. mlvr simply proved over myown slgna ;Br that I waK an ice-cream man who as jV.teo to I* l a large straw-colored jackass. ’ hen 1 took it in totheclty editor he asked ■ ie it 1 hud the slip cut from tho pajier to 'lnch 1 Imd referred.

I don’t kuow what paper it, is, but we haven’t got any such type a* that in our office.’ “He then stated that he would not detain 11 e any longer, and I don’t believe he could if lie had wanted to. I went down the stairs rather than meet the elevator boy again, and soon found myself on the street. I bought niy wife anew dress on the way homo, and told her 1 hud thought better of my assassination scheme on her account. “That was ten years ago,’’ said the old man, as ho arose to go, “and although I have not always done right, I can truly say that the gore of no newspaper man is onmy hands.” Bill Nyu. SHE MARRIED A “COUNT.” Discovered in an Insimo Asylum- Peculiar Duties of a Foreign Consul. IVashiiigtan Special to Detroit JWbtoie. “No one who has not had practical ex perience has any idea of tho various duties which a Consul representing his country abroad is required to perform,” saul Dr. St. Clair, the able Chief of the Consular Bureau of the State Department to your correspond ent yesterday. “Not oniv have they to look after the commercial interests of their coun try, but they have to attend to some of the queerest kinds of requests from their coun trymen at homo. It has more than once been tho case that a Consul has been ap plied to purchase peculiar animals found m the country to which they are accredited, all the way from elephants to rare kinds of lizards. Very frequently they are asked to collect a number of specimens of the sea-shells peculiar to their part of the world. Only a short time ago wo received a request from a gentleman in Kentucky asking that the Consul at Barcelona, in Spain, procure for him a fine specimen of the native ass for breeding purposes, the gentleman being under the impression thut that animal at tained to a largo size in Spain. The request was forwarded, and the Kentuckian has since received a very fine animal of the donkey kind. But the more frequent requests outside of the purely commercial duties of the Consul are of a purely private and family kind. If a son, daughter, husband or Wife goes as tray, or if information is required of the whereabouts of a person of any degree of relationship to the inquirer in a foreign country, application is at once made to the representatives of this country nearest the place where the missing person is supposed to be, and the Consul is asked to look him up. Some very startling romances have been unearthed in this way through the con sular agencies. That was a strange case which was unearthed some time ago in Florence, Italy, by Mr. A. Schuyler Crosby, who was then United States Consul at that place. One dav ho was conducting a party of Americans through the principal places of interest iii the city, and among the places visited was the insane Asylum. As the parti' was going through tho wards one of the inmates of the institution suddenly called out to Mr. Crosby: “Oh, sir: you are an American, are you not? For God’s sake come here and listen to mi' story. ” Mr. Crosby went to the cell from whence the piteous appeal came, and sa v behind the bar a woman much emacia ted, but ap) m rentlv sane. He listened to her story, and, after making inquiries, set himself to work to procure her release, in which he succeeded after a great deal of trouble. The woman’s story was as follows: She was born in Mobile, of wealthy parents, and, being attractive in anpoarance, she had a number of suitors for her hand in mar riage. One day an Italian came to tho city, he was handsome, and wrote the prefix “Count” before his name. He soon got him self introduced into the liest circles of Mo bile society and. by his pleasant and courte ous bearing, became a great favorite among the ladies of the place. He became a con stant visitor at the house of Miss , the subject ot’ this story, and intimacy began to ripen into love on the part of tiie young girl. Tho parents did not approve of tho match, but the handsome Italian portrayed to the Jove-smitten girl in glowing terms the wealth of his affection for ner and the beau ties of the lovely Florentine nomo which he wished her to become tho mistress of. At last his entreaties were successful, and the young girl was married to the “Count” secretly. When the girl’s parents hoard of it thev were enraged. Her father refused to have anything to do with her, and in stead of giving her the fortune he had in tended to be hers settled on her the sum of *3,000 a year. The young couple started for Euivqie, but it sisui became apparent to the wife that her husband was not only not in love with her, but that his only object in marrying her was to procure her fortune, and having failed in that through tho anger of her father, had no more use for her. Shortly after reaching Florence tbo “Count” had three physicians called in and they made an examination of the young girl, much to her surprise and terror. On the following day a covered wagon came to the door und she was told to get inside. When sho refused she was seized from tie hind aud rudely bound and bandaged. Slio fainted, and when she recovered she found herself in the insane asylum. There she remained for over two years, until she was found by Mr. Crosby. Meanwhile the hus band, wiio had caused her incarceration, wrote home to the girl’s parents that sho was very sick, and described the expense he was putting himself to in order to take prop er care of tho girl he loved so well. The father was too proud to allow him to hear the lull expense of his daughter s illness under tiie circumstances, and sent along regular remittances. The “Count” paid sso<i to the asylum for the keep of his wife, and lived in good style upon the remaining *1,500. As soon as the news reached Mo bile of the true state of affairs, however, tho remittances suddenly stepped, and the young girl was received homo with open nrms. The “Count” is still living in Florence, but lms to resort to other means of earning a living. The Time When Barnum Set ’Em Up. From the Chicago Herald. At that dinner a story was told of Bar num: “He is a teninerauco mini now,” said one of the party, “but I remember when ho get up tiie drinks for a distinguished crowd. Ho didn’t do it out of pure good nature c it,her. it was twenty-six years ago at tho Profile House, in tho Franconia Mountains. Barnum was feeling pretty smart in those days, and he had been playing iris jokes and eute tricks rather freely about the house. A lot of guests sat on the piazza of tho hotel. Among them were Commodore Vanderbilt, William 11. Vanderbilt, another of tho fam ily, Gov. Gilmore's son, John Hyde, tiie ar list, Barnum and a number of others, iu rluiliug myself. Young Gilmore was a lively voting eiiap then, but lie ha. deterio rated and become a minister sine •. Gilmoro put up the job and letu.mil into it. He twisted the talk around to physical prowess, and got Barnum to brag about how fast ho could run. „ . . , , “Across the plateau in front of tho hotel wo* a rail to which horses were tied. Gii moro proposed that we all start from tho piazza and run to the rail, and that tlm last man to touch the rail with Ins hand pay for the drinks for the crowd. Everybody agreed, and wo get into litre, all except, the Commo dore, who sat on tire piazza ami gave the word. I’. T. was lively and confident, and waited impatiently for the word. Tiie Commodore'-.ml'Go!' and away went the greatest show on earth like Jumbo in a sprint race. He took tho lend right away. Every Is My else pretended to run for nil that was in him, but took care not to get ahead of B T. The showman got there in great style, put his hand on the rail, and turned around in triumph. There stoisl tho rest of tho crowd ill line behind him. not one of thorn touching the rail. When he heard the Commodore roar he took in tho situation. Ho was the only one who put Ids hand oil the rail ut all. Barnum set them up, but ho was so mad that he couldn’t tell a plausible fuhy tale for a week.” For weak lungs, spitting of blood, weak stomach, night sweats, and tl.o eorly stagos of consumption, “Golden Medical Discov ery" is specific.

Allen Harp, a boy ltj years old, the son of a gardener at Bryn Mawr, while sick with grief over the death of a favorite collie, laid down beside the dog’s grave on Mon day night and shot himself in the head. John Harp, the buy’s father, has been for many years past tho landscoi* 1 gftrdenerof the Bryn Mawr Hotel, and with his assist ant gardener, Thomas Conley, and his two oldest boys, has had the entire cure of the grounds. Allen Harp lived with his father ill a pretty little cottage on the opposite side of the pike, not a hundred yards from tho hotel. His life was as peaceful and appar ently as happy, and the atmosphere of his home and work as healthy anil free from all morbid influences as tho home and life of a worker among flowers and trees could be. But the boy was naturally shy, silent and moody. He seldom spoke to anyone and to those of the guests at the hotel who addressed him he replied in monosyl lables and with averted face and downcast eyes. The boy’s one companion and constant at tendant. was a largo Scotch collie or shep herd's dog, whose dumb sympathy the si lent, melancholy boy seemed to find all suf ficient in itself. The summer boarders, now that the pitiful tragedy of the boy’s death recalled him so strongly to their recollection, remember having seen this dog following him as he moved around the grounds trim ming the hedges or lying with its head in his lap when 110 sat at rest under the shade of the trees. BURYING THE DOG QUIETLY. The dog was a pet of all the Harp chil dren, but it was Allen who fed' it and cared for it, and it was Allen the dog preferred to follow through tho streets of tho village. This close friendship had lasted for over a year and a half, when last Friday the dog grew suddenly ill, aud on Monday Ellis, Harp’s second son, found the collie lying dead among the hushes at, the back of the barn. Without saying anything to Allen, who was at work on the grounds of the hotel, Kllis and his sister dug a grave and buried the dog at the rear of tho barn. Ellis wrote with a piece of pencil in n round, boyish hand, ou the back of two pieces of boards, the following inscrip tion : “In memory of Shop. Born 19 of Feb ruary, 18Sf>, taken sick July 15, and died July IS, 1887. Age one yr. 4 mo. and 3 days.” He placed tho boards at the foot and head of the grave, and when Allen returned in the evening, told him what had happened and what he had done. Allen said nothing and began to eat his supper in silence, but before the rest, had finished, without a word of explanation, he arose and went out into the yard. The family continued their supper, and then gathered on the front porch to listen to tiie music of the dance at the hotel opposite. As they sat there n sharp report came from the garden, and Mr. Harp suggested that Allen was firing off firecrackers, and bade his little girl Ducilla, go and see where he was. The girl went, and returned in a mo ment with the information that Allen was sitting on the around besides the dog’s grave. The brother Ellis rose, and, going to the back of the house, saw Alien lying on the ground. He called him by name, but re reived no answer. When lie returned and told the family this, his mother sprang to her feet and ran to where her son was lying. She found him with his body thrown across the newly-made grave, face downward, anil with his arms stretched limp and still in front of him, with a dark, ro t hole in his forehead and a pistol lying within reach of his right, hand. The orchestra was playing the second waits in the hall of the hotel, and as it was a warm night thore were as many people in the grounds and on the piazzas as there were in the dance room. THE FATHER’S GRIEF. Suddenly from under the trees, and up the broad steps of the hotel, John Harp rushed, hat less and coatless, with a white, haggaid face, crying incoherently for a doctor, and saying: “My boy, he is dying; where is a doctor? Help me save my hoy.” Tne music stopped and the guests, terrified and startled, ran into the hall and gathered around the distracted man. William J. Troth and E. L. Perot was the first to un derstand what had happened, and, followed by Dr. Thomas Andrews, they hurried to the little group standing at the back of the gardener’s house. Dr Andrews and Dr. Scvery turned the boy upon his back and made a rapid examination of his wound. “I ran do nothing here,” said Dr. Andrews as he rose; “death was instantaneous.” The weapon which the boy used was an old iJS eaiibre revolver which had belonged to his father and tho existence of which lmd been long forgotten. The grave of the dog was partly dug up as if, as Ellis Harp told a re porter last night, “my brother had tried to lie down beside the dog when he died and be buried in tho same grave with it.” Mr. Dove and Alfred Parrish carried tiie boy’s hixly into the house, and the doc tors washed and cleared away the blood which was clotted in his hair. Tho boy’s face was very peaceful and his countenance without any sign of contraction. Coronor Kingkinger impaneled a jury yesterday which was composed of P. S. At tick, Morris Johnson, William H. Weimer, Dr. T. B. Severy, Charles Wenrich and R Cameron. They rendered a verdict of “deliberate suicide.” The funeral of the boy will take place on Friday after noon. Two Acres of Teeth. fhi* the Chicago Herald. “Come with me,” said Agent Day, one af ternoon last week. “Did you never see an acre of teeth? Not Then I Will show you one—yes, twoacrek almost a ten-acre lot.” Then Agent Day led the way up the track which surrounds the two rings and platform in the circus tent. The performance was going on, and the two clowns, one made up as a bear, were going through their reiiily comic manoeuvers and imitations rf lie Blondin horse. Interestingas.tbisbit of pan tomime was it could not compare for picturesquoness with tho scone presented on the other side of the ring. There, stretched out upon the hillside of seats, was the oft-heard-of “soa of faces.” Always rather startling to one who beholds it for the first time, this ocean of counte nances sparkling with thousands of eyes and looking so white by contrast with the darker shades of clothing and the soot-stained can vas, now took on nn aspect doubly strange. In each face there appeared to tie a still whiter streak, a horizontal lino which seemed almost to glitter. "There,” exclu’med the circus agent, "look at thut, for a half acre of teeth. That is u scene to make a dentist weary, and in a cir cus is the only place you can find it Theatre audiences do not grin and show their teeth like that, except up lti the gallery, where you can't see them. Walk along over by the reserved seats and you’ll not. see any such display as this. The people who sit there don’t grin, either, or at least don’t open their mouths. But even this crowd over hereon the gen eral benches is nothing to what you may see in the country, book carefully and you’ll perceive that not more than one spectator In three is showing his teeth; in the rural districts nine out of ten do whenever any thing really funny is going on in tho ring. If I was to go to sleep for six months, and you wero to take rnc iijsido a circus tent in front of the erowas, 1 could (ell whether we were in a city or country town by simply noting the display of teeth along the benches."
