A MARRIED MESSENGER BOY.
He Hn to Huatla to Support His Wife and Thn Tonng Children. At an elevator in one of the big office build ings In Broadway was passing oue of the i.:nr floors on its downward trip a shout of "Down was beard, and a messenger ran at full sintxl along the corridor just iu time to luip into the car. The incident excited no lilt lo merri ment among those In the elevator, who in the free and easy American way began to make comment "You must be new at the business," said one man to the messenger, who was evidently thirty or thirty-five yeait old uud wore a full beard. "Well, not exactly was the answer; "it't fifteen years since I went into it." "Then you probably bad a fit of absent mindedncK', didn't youf" asked another man, and everybody laughed, especially the author or tne lone. "You're wrong there," was the reply: "I am paid by the job," and here the elevator reached the ground floor. The messenger. who bad taken hit stand near the door, was the first man out, and before the car was empty he bad entered a building two doors down tne street. In spite of the jokes of the "funny" man and the general idea of the public, there are many messengers who do not spend an hour ana a hair tossing pennies, looking iu show windows and reading dime novels every time they are sent to deliver a message. Es pecially is the popular belief untrue as far as the Western Union messengers down town ar concerned. The reason is plain. They are paid less than two cents for every tele gram they deliver, and if they were as gla cier line in their movements as the comic Da- pars would have us believe they are, they wouia not earn enough to pay for their uni forms. Not a few of them are married and have children, and it will be readily believed that they have to get around at a lively pace to earn enougn to support their families. Bearded messengers always arouse more or less curiosity. People cannot understand bow man can make a living at a boy's work. Yet the adult messengers And their occupa tion profitable as well as to their taste. If fitted for their work, they can generally . make from 113 to 1S a week, which is more man they could earn at many other callings. As beginners at the business make only a quarter as tnucn, tne question arises, how can a man, even with many years' experience, do tour times tne worn or a "green" boy! In , answer to this a messenger, who has gotten married ana raised three children since he en tered the service, said: "There's a good deal more science about the messenger business than you might think. In the first place, I have always been in the de tail which delivers messages in the district which lies within a half dozen blocks of the Western Union building. In the fifteen years tnat l nave been at the work I have delivered telegrams to about every firm in the district and have come to know just where the office of every one of thein is located. This means a big saving in time, as a new man finds out after he has spent ten or fifteen minutes read ing the directory in the hall of the building, asking questions of the elevator man or going from one room to another making inquiries. "Another way in which I have an advan tage is that I know Just where to get my book signed. The bashful 'greeners' will hang around until somebody takes notice of them, and the 'fresh' ones will interrupt a man who is adding up a column of figures, and get 'jumped' on. I always go to the right man at the right time, and will bave three telegrams delivered before a new mes senger gets rid of one." "Do you expect to stay in the business all your lifer' seemed a natural question to ask. "Well, I don't see any way out of it. I make enough to keep my family, and that's more than I would be sure of doing at many other things. I have given my oldest boy a good common school education, and am going to make a messenger of him next summer. I believe that it will give him a better busi ness training than anything else would. Me will get around everywhere, see everything, meet all kinds of people, learn how business is done, and get to be bright, sharp, quick and active. After he's been with the West ern Union a few years I'll try to got him a place of the same kind in a broker's office. If he's the right sort he can get to be a clerk after a while, and sometimes brokers' messen gers become partners in the firm. Why shouldn't my boy be a Wall streot millionaire some dayf Jay Gould and ths rest didn't tart in life with much better advantages than he has." New York Trilnins, Murdered His Friend In a Dream. A curious theory of murder has prevailed with the governor of Kentucky in obtaining the pardon of W. B. Tompkins, sentenced to prison for life in 1887 for the murder of Sam uel Purdy. The two men were warm friends and had roomed together for several years. Cries were heard from their bedroom one Dight, and Tompkins was found standing In middle of the room gasping for broath, while Purdy lay murdered on the bed. Tompkins gasped: "He's gone out the door," but the door was cloeed and no trace of any one was discovered. In a corner of the room was a poker covered with blood and hair. Accord ing to Tompkins he had been aroused by some one striking across him at Purdy, who lay at the bock skte of the bed, and hod seized the assailant, who had broken away. I'urdy'i money, ftfOO, was untouched, and Tompkins vehemently protested his innocence to the last. The prosecuting attorney and the judge who had tried the case now believe that he killed his friend in a dream, and upon this novel theory be baa been released. Chicago Herald. Monte Orlsto's New Owner The Italian millionaire, the Marchess Carlo Gtiigononi, has bought the world famed little Mediterranean island of Monte Crista It is aid that he is going to try to reconstruct the scene of old Alexandre Dumas' great novel and to evolve the treasure chambers discov ered by the Marseilles fisherman, who after ward blossomed out through their agency Into the Count of Monte Cristo. Alexandra Dumaa named his pretty rills, near Paris Monte Cristo, and it is to this day one of the algbts pointed out to the stranger driving to B&lnt Germain along the wooded banks of the Seinerail Mail Oasette. The Shert Welch Ms. I was reading In the uanen the other dT that the "short weight" man had been arrest ed awl held to bail in Chicago on a charge of 'swindling. It was all of nine years ago that I saw bim play his game In Toledo, and he has not only been at it ever since, but must have laid away a snug little sum of money. X was in a large retail grocery house one day when the man casne in, briskly inquired for the proprietor, and said: "In connection with the government effort to shut out all adulterated goods we are com piling tables to show that flu per cent, of re tail buyers are defrauded in weight Them tables are classified by states, counties and cities, and I respectfully request the privi lege of examining your scales." "But they have been tested by the city scal er," protested the merchant. "Then so much the better," replied the stranger, as he took several weights, each of which was stamped "U. 8.," from his satchel. "But I I come in later when I am at liberty. I want to understand this matter more thoroughly." "tMi, certainly," and the man replaced his weights and bowed himself out, to return- at another hour and "arrange matters iu a sat isfactory manner." I met him fifty times in three years, and up to that date no one bad questioned his identity as a government aent, while he had "fixed matters" with hundietls ef men whose scales had liven found short. It was in De Witt, la., that I saw him last. He entered a grocery there, tested a scale without having said a word, and then explained his mission to the proprietor. "Is my scale short I" inquired the grocer. "Two ounce to the pound, sir." "And fur seveu years I have been girh'g customers only fourteen vuuvC to the pound f "Exactly." - "Well, durn my hide. I've dropped $300 a year right along even while doing that, and this satisfies me that I had better go back to my old trade, which was prize fight ing I Now is a good tiuto to begin." And he hauled off and knocked the agent clean over a broom rack and under the stove, and then lifted him up and booted him into the street. New York Sun, Death as Compensation. The more intimately I enter into commun ion with myself the more I consult my own intelligence the more legibly do I find writ ten in my soul these words, Be just and thou shalt be happy. But let us not base our ex Iectation8 upon the present state of things. The wicked prosper aud the just remain op pressed. At this conscience takes umbrage, and murmurs against its author; it murmurs, "Thou hast deceived me!" Who has pro claimed this to theet Is thy ul annihilated! Hast thou ceased to exist! O Brutus 1 O my soul Soil not thy noble life by turning thins own hand against it. Leave not thy hope and thy glory with thy mortal body on the field of Philippil Why dost thou say virtue is nothing, when thou goest to enjoy the price of thine! Thou goest to die, thou thinkest: no, thou goest to live, and it is then that I shall fulfill ail. One would say, from the murmurs of im patient mortals, that God ought to requite their virtue In advance. .Oh I lot us first be good aud afterward we shall be happy. Let us not exact the prize before the victory, nor the wages before tho labor. It is not on the course, says Plutarch, that the conquerors in our games are crowned; it is after they have gone over it If the soul is immaterial it can survive the body; and, in that survival, providence is justified Though I were to have no other proof of the immateriality of the soul than the triumph of the wicked and the oppression of the just in this world, that spectacle alons would prevent my doubting tho reality of the life after death. So shocking a dissonance in this universal harmony would make me seek to explain it. I should say: "All does not finish for me with this mortal life; what succeeds shall make concord of what went before." Rousseau. Shaking- Bands with a Lion. An English writer telUhow he shook hands with a lion when he was a boy: The menagerie was especially famous for its lions. They were indeed noble beasts, but crowded together in traveling vans, where their discomfort was not likely to improve their tempers. All round the vans ran a rope cnam to seep everybody at a reasonable dis tance from the claws and beaks of the wild inmates. I managed to smugglo myself un der this rope undetected by the keepers. A magnificent old lion lay stretched at full length, with one paw outside his den. A sud den thought struck me that it would be a fine thing to shake hands with that lion. It was by no means the sort of thing to be done every day. It would place me in a proud position among the boys of the town. In a moment I laid my hand on the top of tne outstretched paw. it was smooth and somewhat velvety, and the lion lay perfectly still, appearing not to mind me in the least. It is not unlikely that I might have gone on to complete the operation of handshaking, but all at ouoe I felt the cut of a whip across my face. I started back with the pain and looked round. At that instant the keeper came up and spoke to me very civilly. He was very sorry to have hurt mo, he said, but in all probability the lion would have torn mv hand off, and this was his only way of making me start back. I did not feel so grateful to the man at that moment as I have don ever sinoe. Phila delphia Times. Origin of OrliiRo. Here "Gringo" is the name applied to the English aud oitizens of the United States of America alike to all who speak English or look as if they could. So, saying "I'm a Gringo" usually gives the impression that one is an Englishman. This appellation is said to have originated thus: Years ago a song by Lover, entitled "Green Grow the Bushes, Ol" and iu which these words were prominent as part of the chorus, was popular with the English sailors, who, at that time and at the present as well, handle most of the trade at Peru, "Green grow" was contracted to Gringo and used to designate the English. Anyway, we ore known by ao other name in all the countries of the west coast of South America. Peru Letter in Columbus Post Kings for Her Toas. George B. Dexter, of Boston, exhibited among his friends some gold and silver rings of very artistic design and finish, but of un commonly large size for finger rings. Mr. Dexter explained that the riugB were not for the fingers, but the toes, and were the kind worn by the four hundred of Algiers. He had secured them on a recent trip abroad. The articles were examples of native skill, and the workmanship would so in pare very favorably with tb best work of the most skilled jewelers any where. Cincinnati Times Star.

New York Letter. Youthful Depravity. Carl and Ruth, brother and sister, aged 6 aud 4, are known to their immediate rela tives and to a good many besides as "terrors." The other afternoon they were engaged iu a very promising sparring contest, when their mother intervened with some violence, took both contestants by the collar and set them down sharply on the floor, one on one side of the fireplace and the other on the other side. Then she seated herself between them. "There I" she exclaimed; "now stay there, exactly where you are, and I forbid you to make a sound!" There was something unusually peremptory, perhaps, in this treatment, and for a few moments the "terrors" were cowed. Carl sat silent, blinking and looking puzzled. His mother would have sworn that be was study ing up some means of getting around her com mands. And presently she was astonished to see him extend his hand solemnly toward Ruth, with the remark: "Let us pray I" And the two children fell on their knees, while the boy repeated the Lord's Prayer.

She was within easy hearing distance of me, but I could not get close enough to her to whisper what I wished to say, aud I could not even catch her eye. Suddenly I thought of some thing. I noticed that the frame of the chair in which I was sitting was lrou. I took my latchkey out of my pocket and, striking ths frame of the chair, tapped out her full name. Her practiced ear caught the sounds at once. She turned and saw me. Then I tapped out my full message on the rim of my chair.
