Once or twice I wd s in love; but what a

and k s I was tired of hoarding houses .
and disgusted with hotels I hired a flat
and went to housekeeping with a single
servant-a black boy. C
It was rather lonely coork,e in and some- t
times I was obliged to pretend that I
ormwas a married man and tpict my wifer. I

One morning, impelled bythat th curios
ty which is bofootfall I of loneliness. I leaned
over my window ledge and peat ped
down. I saw below a little kitchen,
with a little table and a little stave.
At the little table sat-my wife!
What I mean is that imaginary being
whose footfall I was always hearing on
my floor, who in day dreams sat at my
table and poured out tea-whose actual
absence I consoled myself for by sup
posing that she had gone to take tea
with her mother-sat there in proper
person, round, dimpled, black-eyed, as
my fancy painted her.
She was eating her breakfast all
alone, and she looked as though she
did not like it. I was sure-sure from
the very first-that she was not mar

rled, and from my unseen post I watched
S her every movement until my black
servant, with the remark: "'Massa, dem
Aere griddle cakes is all gettin' spiled,"'
troused me from my reverie.
However, that was not the last time
Isaw her. She sat a great deal in that
conservatory, the most blooming rose it
ever nourished within its glass walls.
She .swed there and read books there,
as well as ate there. I sawv her concoct
dainty puddings for one, and pies
which lasted her four days, and I was
as sure Providence intentled her for me
as though I had asked an oracle and
been told so.
With an opera glass I could read the
very pages of the book site read, and all
the while she had no idea that iny eye
was on her. At last I took astep-a bold
one for me. I bought a book-thle last
new one of an authoress she had seemed
interested in-and left it ait her door
witith this on the fly-leaf:

and then draw one of the white cur

shaving himself at a window opposite. chi
I saw that she at once pitched upon thi

with autumn-leaves in her hand. After- act
ward she ironed them and made a alt
little wreath of them, which she hung me
up over a little looking glass. The th:
next day I bought and left at the door crc
some hothouse roses. we
"Since you care for autumn leaves
you will care for these," I wrote on a I
card, and signed it "Your Spirit sti
Friend," as usual. th
This time she laughed softly and put c
them in water, and sat and looked at s
them a long while. Then she peeped
out of her window again. The young .
man was not at the opposite casement. ie
Then she shook her head, and after a L*
time she took a damask rose from thle cil
bunch anihput it in her hair. The next p
time I sent the flowers I wrote on the
card: hi
"You wore a damask rose from the bl
last bunch I sent you. WVill you put a m
yellow tea rose in your hair this timne?" to
How I watched! I saw her look, w
half pleased, half frightened. At first hi
she only put the roses in a vase, but at 18
last she did take one, and it was a tea di
rose, and pinned it in her black braids.
I kissed my hand to her from my ele
vated situation, but she did not know it. dl
So for at least six months I watched. fa
and sent her flowers and fruit and tt
books and little gifts of all sorts. iBut
as for asking our mutual landlord for Ii
an introduction, I never thought of of
that-it never occurred to me. I should fr
not have dared to speak to her if I had cl
been introduced.
The autumn and the winter passed, b,
and it was often so cold that I was r<
obliged to scrape away the frost from te
t my peeping place to see her; but I did d
o it, and let me assure you that I did it iý
most respectfully, and with the most p
a gentlemanly feelings. I played the spy, ft
bt ut it was with the deepest veneration. a
e Spring came. Little green buds were I;
on the trees, and she opened the window 13
to let in the air and wore pretty, light- tl
I colored .garments. Now that the win- k
e dow wasi open she drew her table
o farther away from it and nearer the a
the wall. This was more convenient
a to me.
' One evening she sat down at her
n table to write a letter and I got my
it glass and found that I could see the
n words upon the paper. Mly hope wat

I I knew nothing of, she wrote thus:

n, I read those words with joy and re- 1
treated to my room to think them over. 1
Having done so, my resolution was ar
° rived at. I seized a sheet of paper and
)n wrote upon it these words:
y - "DEAlt MADAtIim-I am neither deformed nor
al disfigured in any way. Your flattering opinion
of me is so delightful that, though modesty
ea prompts me to contradict you, I cannot brine

my offer. Will you have me if, on meeting, you
are not disappointed in me!'
Thanks to my glass roof I was able
to see that dear little woman write
"yes," or words to that effect; and I
called upon her next day, and now I no
longer dream that she is my wife. She
pours out my coffee and makes my home
a paradise. When I told her all I have
told you, she said: "You ought to have
been ashamed of yourself." She was
in duty bound to say it, but, between
you and me and the rose, she did not
mean it.-London Tid-Bits.

Iarvelous-The Actor's Famous du
Roles--ls Later Years. te
[Special Lettnr.l gr
The true delineator of dramatic Sal
characters must learn sooner or later Ne
that strong contrasts are the effects by,
which arouse enthusiasm in an audi- me
ence. It was to the deep impression La
this thought made upon the mind of Cri
Joseph Jefferson that the world is I
indebted for one of the greatest char- the
acters ever enacted on the stage; and pr<
although not wholly, but in a great
measure, to that same impression is
that famous comedian indebted for the
crown of glory which he so deservedly
wears. Joseph Jefferson would with
out doubt have become a great and
famed actor in any case, but his
stumbling, almost accidentally, upon
the character of Rip Van Winkle was
certainly a powerful auxiliary to the
success he attained.
Joseph Jefferson was nearly thirty
years of age before he secured any pub
lic recognition. This was in 1858 ats
Laura Keene's theater in New York
city, as Asa Trenchard in Tom Taylor's
play of "Our American Cousin." He
made a great hit and for the first time in i
his stage career enjoyed the pleasura
ble sensation of seeing his audience
moved on the instant from laughter to
tears. It gave him a sense of power
which his dramatic instincts warned
him to cultivate. In the summer of
1859 the actor went to a farm in Para
dise valley in Pennsylvania for his va
cation. He was in a fever of unrest
because he rwas not able to find just the
Character he wanted. While at this
farm one rainy day, lying in the loft of t
the barn. on the hay. he was reading Si
"The Life and Letters of Washington R
r Irving." Suddenly the remembrance b,
i of the "Sketch Ilook" came to him and re
I from that his mind turned to the quaint m
character of Rip Van Winkle. I
He went to the house and got the t
book and began rending the story. The C
s result was his gathering up such ma
r) terial as he could from three previous !
i1 dramatizations and by adding some
t ideas and situations of his own. He l
t produced a play which was both satis- c
factory and disappointing to the t
• author. It was not until some years
e later, when in London, that. Dion 0
v Boucicault revised the ivork,mnaking it

In character Mr. Jefferson is one of bat
the most genial men in the dramatic sco
profession. He was married the second I
time on December 20, 1867, to Miss w
Sarah Warren, a relative of William
Warren, the comedian. He has ever oi
been liberal in the extreme to his breth
ren in the profession, giving time and of
money whenever he was called upon.
It was Joseph Jeffcerson who first prof- a
fered his assistance to the family of
George Holland after the death of that &
genial comedian. -
It was Mr. Jefferson who went with u
the son of the dead actor, at Mrs. Hol- n
land's request, to the pastor of her g
church to ask him to hold the funeral
services in his church, but who refused
upon learning the profession the do- P
ceased had followed. It was to Joseph '
Jefferson this minister of the Gospel c
said that though he could not hold the f
funeral services of an actor in his
church there was "a little church
arouni the corner" where the funeral t
services could possibly be held. In re- q
lating the event Mr. Jefferson did s
not appear to care about the slight
yes, insult-to himself as a member of g
the deposed profession, though there is n
no doubt he did feel it keenly, but it a
cut him to the quick to have his dead e
friend's son hear such a slight put upon
his father. Mlr. Jefferson was probably r
never so much incensed in his life ashe
was at that unfeeling minister.
Joseph Jefferson is in these days rest
ing upon the laurels he has so well
earned. He confines himself to two
or three of his favorite characters,
mainly "'Rip Van Winkle" and "Bob
Acres," and it is hardly probable he will
ever again essay any new role.
He is not perhaps too old, for though
he is 63 years of age his health and I
general physical condition are excel
lent. lie does not spend so much of
his spare time at his plantation in =
a Louisiana as formerly. He is inter
ested in politics and is a warm personal
a friend of Grover Cleveland. Although
b a man of much liberality, he was never,
a like his father or his grandfather, im
, provident, and is now worth about
$5-~00,000. The last new venture he en
tered into was with the late "Billy"
Florence, when they organized a com- I
n bination to produce a line of the old
time comedies. The venture was high

How Old Tin Cans Are Utlliszed e2
Belted to Recover the Solder Used to It C
Mlaklng and Sealing Them-Other Com- I
merctal Commoditles · es ced
from the Vats.
In the suburbs of great cities an in- T
dustry has sprung up, having for its It c
object the recovery of the solder used are
in making and scaling tin cans. In T
consequence the formerly despised and Rec
useless tin can has acquired sufiecieni fee'
commercial value to rescue it from the 12 1
back lot dumping ground and garbage fee'
scow. ch.
Under the present system of street
cleaning, New York city's refuse is
loaded on scows from docks located at
convenient intervals along the rivet
front, and then taken to sea and
dumped. These docks have double
decks, the upper projecting sufficiently
to allow the contents of a cart to fall
upon the middle of the scow, and be
distributed by the trimmers who keep
the vessel on an even keel. The trim
mers also select everything of value -
with the greatest care; rags, fat, bone, tic
metal, paper stock, etc., being stored pa
on the lower deck of the dock. The pa
silver and jewelry form no small item ed
of the contractors' profit, and the total ro
value of a scow load is estimated at an c1
average of two hundred dollars. ITI
The space between the dock plat- 6
forms is often closed in with odds and
ends, and the interior converted into a
miserable habitation by the trimmers,
men and women, who thus herd to
gether, their supplies being drawn
from the dump.
These dumping docks are the princi
pal source of supply for the industry
we illustrate, and a wagon load of tin
cans can be bought at such places for
four or five dollars.
The furnace is an old soap boiler,
into which a few sticks are thrown;
the bowl is then filled with cans, a
quart of kerosene poured over them
and ignited.
The heat developed by the oil is not
great enough to attack the tin, but
melts the solder, which flows to the
b oottom of the bowl. The solder recov
i ered from a load of cans averages for
ty pounds. After this process is com
pleted the tin plate scrap is sold to
~uake what is called "acid."
Into a large open vat containing
waste acid, acid ferric sulpate,
s ulphuric or hydrochloric acid, e
the scrap is thrown and allowed g
to remain until the tin is stripped
from the iron underneath; more scrap s
and metallic iron is added until the so
lution is neutral. The tin thus dis- t
solved is used as a basis for the t
preparation of stannates or other tin c
compounds, and by dyers.
The iron plate is rolled into balls for
melting, the ferrous sulphate purified
t and sold as commercial copperas, and
the remaining acid used in repetition
hof the process.-Scientific American.
The Inventor or Billiards.
The English are very fond of the I
t game of billiards, and a letter has been I
L- discovered in the Britain museum
which gives the origin of the national
- sport. It was invented by a London
t- pawnbroker, whose name was William
* Kew. Kew not only lent money but I
d he sold cloth, and for the latter pur
r- pose had a yard measure with which
he usedl to compute the amounts. One
day, to distract himself he took the
three round balls which are the em
blems of his trade-they may still be
seen in front of certain shops in Lon
don-and, placing them on his counter,
began to hit them about with a yard
measure. lie found it made a pretty
game. He got a kind of skill in mak
ing one ball glance off the other, and
his friends who saw him thus employed
railed the game Bill's yard. It was
soon shortened into billiards. But the
Te-d was the instrument with which
the balls were knocked about and the
dificulty arose what to call it. They
caUtd it after the name of the pawn
eo..ter-a l-ew.
A Fragment of the Moon.
A remarkably fine specimen of mete

Tshermel's views, is simply a piece of
ore projected through volcanic agency
from the face of the moon) has been
sent from Rockingham coun ty, South
Carolina, to the state m seum at
SColumbia. Its greatest length is not
above 12 inches, and its thickness
through the thickest part is about 2
e inches. lIn general shape it is flat,
