THE BOWERY SATURDAY NIGHT.
The Eccentricities of that Famous
New York Thoroughfare.
From the New York Star.
Hew York. June 15. —Not very long ago
some local bard wrote and composed a song
“The Bowery on Saturday Night.” It was
a sort of companion piece to “The Market
on Saturday Night,” which had a run all
over the country for awhile, and in New
York the former ditty was seized upon by
the whole east end of town, from the Bat
tery to West Farms, and was sung and
■whistled for months after “The Market on
Saturday Night” had been forgotton. But
the Bowery song never got outside of New
York. If it was sung anywhere else the
listeners voted it dull, tuneless, and spirit
less and they’d have none of it. They
couldn’t understand the Bowery as the New
York east .aiders do, and just because of its
local flavor New York found sparkling wit,
soulful melody, and glowing life in the song
that was unappreciated elsewhere.
And no wonder. To the whole east side
bourgeoisie of the metropolis the Bowery
is akin to paradise. It is the social center
where beaux meet belles, and where papas
and mammas meet to gossip. With
Sts kaleidoscopic changes of color
in the shop-windows, blazing with
light on Saturday nights, it is a panorama
of beauty and wonderful offects. It is a
charming summer resort in the dog days
and a glorious winter watering-place when
the mercury is below zero. It is a lovers’ lane,
a fashionable promenade, and a bustling
business mart. It is the Bowery, and that
means, to a New Yorker at least, more than
any pen is able to describe.
I took in the Bowery last Saturday night
about 10 o’clock. At the lower end of the
great thoroughfare at Chatham square
there was the first noticeable feature of the
Bowery in half a dozen big pawnshops,
that are kept wide open this one night in
the week. Men and women and children
were pouring in and crowding out of these
resorts of the improvident, and I let the
tide, formed by three fat women and a
couple of longshoremen, carry me iDto the
biggest of the establishments. Every
body came to redeem some
article, for it was pay night.
Men got back watches and clothing they
had pledged, women received jewelry and
clothing too, and children were handed
bundles of all kinds. Great family Bibles
were lugged away under arms or on tiny
shoulders; wan women seized their little
gold-plated finger-rings and pressed them to
their lips as they hurried out; young fellows
redeemed medals awarded for merit of
some kind: workmen got back their tools;
bonnets, shoes, table linen, spoons, books,
fire-arms, guitars, fiddles, accordions, even
an embroidered pair of suspenders, with
other articles, were handed across the long
counter by the five busy clerks, and just be
fore I let the ebb of the human tide carry
me out again, a well-dressed old gentleman
planked down $5 odd and received a rail
road pass.
Just above the pawnshops, on the west
side of the Bowery, there was an influx of
humanity of foreign birth. From Baxter
street came greasy Poles and Slavs, with a
shuffling, sneaking sort of gait. Out of
Mott street flowed a yellow stream of chat
tering Chinamen. From Mulberry street
swarthy Italians joined the crowd, and for
several blocks I listened in vain for one
word spoken in English. When at length
I hear i. the national language it was
bellowed forth from the leathern lungs of a
hatchet-faced “shouter” in front of a
dime museum, and announced that there
•were “Stage dramatic pufformances
within every ten minutes, with
the only living, genuine female
mermaid and the only living gent in perfect
health with a broken neck!” A hideous
painting of the “gent” was exhibited with
the head hanging askew of his body
and bis eyes leering at the beholder, a verit
able nightmare of art. There were also
pictures of a fascinating young lady with a
fish’s tail attachment, a creature with the
form of a woman and the face of a pig, a
monkey wdth two heads and,ever so many
legs, a fat woman, and a living skeleton.
Few of the Bowery habitues patronized this
museum or any of the many others along
the street, as they knew from experience
that the pictures and the suasive language
of the shouter were false pretenses of attrac
tions which did not exist.
Just below Canal street there was some
glaring lights which gave glimpses behind
swinging doors of gauav barrooms whence
the music of a fiddle and a harp wailed out
on the air at intervals. Within these
places in bygone days brazenly bedecked
females gave every visitor a turn in a
w altz and picked his pocket at the same
time; but Mayor Hewitt has driven away
these harpies from their former resorts, so
that rural sightseers are no longer
“steerea” into them. Here, too, is a
theater for Hebrews in whicn plays with
bibical characters are acted, the actors
using the “Judisch” dialect, understood by
Jews of all nativitie 5 .
From Canal street northward to Grand is
the great promenade. Girls, girls every
where, in a wonderfully varied color of
dross and of a still more wonderfully varied
compilation. Beauties of nil nations and
climes, there were dark-eyed houris (I be
lieve all dusky-eyed females are called
houris) from Spain and Italy, blue-eyed
blondes from Sweden and Denmark, with
ad the types peculiar to Germany, Ireland,
France, and further distant climes. Those
who ha 1 ‘‘fellers” weren’t at all abashed at
nn encircled arm about their waist in public,
and those who didn’t have male company
put their arms around one another. They
were a happy lot, making the most of the
,veiling holiday after a week of work in
shops and factories by venting their joy in
Juughter and snatches of song, and dressed
in their best in honor of the occasion.
Beaux were dressed dandilv, too, and each
of them wore his hat aslant on a close
copped head and bore a big cigar aslant in
the corner of a capacious mouth. A few
squares further up the whole front width
of a large building was wido open, and the
decorated interior was brilliantly
shown to every passer-by by a hun
dred electric lights. Away back at the
end could be seen an orchestra of young
women playing on a raised platform, and
everywhere white-aproned waiters were
carrying glasses of foaming beer among the
little round tables, from which tobacco
smoko arose in clouds. This is one of the
family resorts for tlio city’s big German
population, and wlmse families, from gross
muter down to toddling kinder, come hither
nightly and spend the evening. The com
bination of music and beer brings them, no
doubt, and yet nolo ly thinks of paying the
slightest attention to the orchestra. It
played away bravely during the wholo half
hour that I spent in the “Garden,"as such
resorts arc always called, but whether it was
playing the Boulanger march or Yankee
Doodle only the orchestra itself could tell.
German husbands argued with loud guttural
voices to ether Gorman husbands, and
pounded the tables to enforco their argu
ments; German wives gossiped shrilly with
other German wives; German babies
squalled at other Gorman babies, who made
f tees and crowed in a funny German way;
and some (German young fellows sang:“l)ie
IVachtam Rhein’'and “Tanuebaum” with
e lusty energy that alone sullieed to drown
tue tones of the violins and the flutes and
the other orchestral instruments.
1 came out on the Bowery again just in
time to witness a dire catastrophe. A Ger
man family party stood on the sidewalk
saying gooid-nyn to another Gorman family
party. The yellow-haired daughter ot one
family wore a bran new hat surmounted by
a gurland of wonderful green sprigs and
pretty little white blossoms, and she stood
close to the curbstone by the gutter. A
melancholy and somowhat cadaverous
horse attached to a cart was awaiting his
abiont driver alongside tho curb, hard by
the yellow-haired girl. Tho horse saw the
green sprigs and the white blossoms, and
they reminded bim of pastures of clover
chitted with daisies. He looked pleased, and
almost smiled. Then be stretched out his
long neck until bfs muzzle wus
only a couple of inches from the
tempting garrami. Hto black uppar Uu
twitch ed once or twice, showing his yellow
teeth, and then upper and lower lip separated
wide, and when they met again the green
sprigs and white blossoms were in the
horse’s mouth. A scream from the girl as
her new hat was snatched from her head,
an agonizing “Oeh, Himniel!” from her
mother, atm a thorenighly disgusted horse
as he spat out the tasteless garland and re
sumed his aspect of melancholy, was the
tableau that ensued. A fight between the
Irish driver and the girl’s big brother was
only prevented by two policemen, and the
German family party returned to the Gar
den with rueful faces.
“Sh’l I buy me a yat’r blow’tinferbeert”
An inebriated but jolly young fellow
stopped me in front of a hat store on the
next corner and earnestly asked advice as
above, while he displayed a two-dollar bill
in his right hand.
“Why, buy a hat, my boy,” said I.
“B’leeve yer right,” asserted the youth,
and I watched him while he purchased a
pearl-colored derby of the hatter. When
he came out he and I climbed on the same
open summer car going up-town. His old
hat, wrapped in paper, seemed an incum
brance to the young man, and after riding
a few squares he reached over the side of
the conveyance and dropped the old hat
into the street. The watchful conductor
saw the bundle fall.Jstopped his car.Jrescued
the hat from the pavement, and replaced it
on the seat beside its owner. In a few
moments the youth turned his head and
saw the bundle beside him. Ho started
slightly, then picked up the package and
examined it curiously with a puzzled ex
pression, and finally dropped it again into
the street and sank back in his seat for a
nap. An old fellow who boarded the car
at the moment picked up the package and
replaced it carefully on the seat beside
the young man. Some of the passengers
smiled and awaited developments. But no
developments occurred until anew pas
senger jostled against the youth in climb
ing aboard and woke him. Then the inebri
a ted chap spied the hat again, rubbed his
eyes, took a second inspection, removed
his new hat from his head and looked at
both hats attentively. For a few moments
he seemed plunged in deep thought, and
then deliberately but unsteadily rising to
bis feet, he kicked the old hat spitefully off
the car and half way to the sidewalk. The
passengers roared as he sat down again,
and they smiled quietly later when the
young man awoke from another nap with a
start and looked all about on the seat as if
he expected to see the obstinate old hat
back beside him again.
There is a good deal of amusement to be
got one way or another out of the Bowery
on Saturday night; and 1 do not know any
better way for a quiet observer to get his
fill of amusement on that great thorough
fare than to walk the entire length between
9 o’clock and 10 o’clock at night and keep
his eyes wide open.
A Child for Its Board Bilk
From the Boston Traveller.
A singular condition of affairs regarding
the custody of a child was brought to light
in the supreme judicial court this morning
by the hearing by Judge Allen of a petition
for a writ of habeas corpus. The petitioner
was Daniel I.ucy, a resident of Lynn, who
sought to regain possession ot his daughter,
Nellie Lucy, years. The little girl had
been in the custody of Michael Welch, who
resides at 73 Harvard street, since the death
of her mother, some time during the latter
part of last December. Welch was in court
this morning, together with the child, to
show cause why the writ should not be grant
ed. He had no counsel, and amazed the
court by the statement that, although no
relative of the child, he proposd to keep it
in charge until the father liquidated an
alleged debt to him of S6O, due for the main
tenance of the little girl since the death of
her mother. Judge Allen lost no time in
granting the writ. This is probably the
first time since slavery was abolished in
Massachusetts that a human being has been
held as collateral security in this common
wealth.
Attention R. R. L.
For sprains, bruises, rheumatism, swell
ing, cuts, burns, etc., in man, and splint,
ringbone, epizootic,scratches, etc., in horses,
ltangum Root Liniment is a sure cure. The
“King of Liniments” is the universal ver
dict. Never fails to cure any ailment that
can lie reached by an external modical ap
plication. 50 cents per bottle. For sale by
Lippmon Bros., wholesale agents.
Summer Tariff.
The adoption of a summer tariff at the
Harnett House, below what has heretofore
been the rule at that excellent hotel, is sure
to be productive of satisfactory results, and
indicates the wisdom of the management.

BEER.
THE ORIGIN OF BEER.
!n a Jolly field of barley good King Gambrl.
nus slept,
And dreaming of his thirsty roalm thi
merry monarch wept.
•In all my land of Netberland there growi
no mead or wine.
And water I could never coax adown thli
throat of mine.
"Now Hat to me, yo heathen gods, and eke
yo Christian, too,
3oth Zerneoock and Jupiter, and Mary, cla<
In blue;
And mighty Thor, the Thunderer, and anj
else that be,
The one who aids me In my need his servan;
I will be.”
And as the sinful heathen all In ths barlej
lay,
There came In dreams an angel bright, whi
Bolt these words did say :
‘Arise, thou poor Gambrlnus, for even al
around
In the barley where thou sleepest a nectai
may be lound,
'ln the barley where thou sleepest than
hides a nectar clear,
Which men shall know In later times ai
porter, alo or beer.”
Then in terms the most explicit he “put th<
monarch through,”
And gave him ere the dream was out tin
recipes to brew.
Up rose King Gambrlnus and shook him 1
the sun;
" Away, yo wretched heathen gods, with yoi
I’m quit and done !
Te've left me with my subjects In error an t
In thirst;
TUI In our dreadful dryness we scarce knos
which Is worst.”
[t was the good Gambrlnus unto his palaci
went.
And messengers through all the land untc
his lords were sent.
“Leave Odin, under pain of death 1” Hli
orders were severe,
yet touched with mildness—for he sent the
recipe for beer.
