Sleight-of-Hand "Con" Men Infest Gotham Streets
NEW YORK. In New York city there prowls around a band of men who
try to dispose of their wares upon the unsophisticated class who usunlly
iook for bargains. Their specialty once was gold bricks, but now it includes
diamonds, gold watches und platinum
rhains.
These prowlers usually parade
the busy sections where a little pros
perity reigns, and there they work
their game upon the Innocent.
"Say, feller, do yer want to buy
something good?" usually Is their In
troduction. Bargains everybody looks for.
"Let's see the article."
The faker then takes from a knot
ted handkerchief a highly polished
gold watch and chnin, and after looking around to see If the "coast Is clear,"
asks the purchaser to "inspect the goods."
Of course the bargain seeker sees the genuine, but does he get that which
the faker shows?
These fakers have studied sleight-of-hand and have a duplicate of nearly
everything they sell.
The argument nnd examination take place In some quiet corner. The
raker tells the purchaser that his "mug" is snapped in the gallery, und since
the article is u "copped" one the purchaser should not make much outward
display when somebody passes by.
Finally they come to terms, and when the purchaser Is ready to pass over
the money the faker says. "Just a minute," and whispers, "Wait till this guy
who is one of the band) passes. He looks like a detective." And In the
Meantime they walk a few yards, while the faker slips the watch and chain
back Into his pocket. When the deal Is finally completed the faker hands
over an exact Imitation, which is much inferior.

Valparaiso by way of the Trunsundean

Isthmus on one of the two regular lines
of steamers nlvinz between Chile and

voyage to the Pacific entrance of the
Canal is about fifteen days. At the
isthmus close connection is made with
ships running to the United States,
which are at sea from five to eight

Steumshlp service to the west coast

Atlantic entrance of the Canal Is now
almost as continuous as the steamship

WHERE MUSIC IS SUPREME

causa It la the Moat Detached
of Them All.
The strength of every art lies ehlotly
In the completeness of Its detuchmenl
from reality. Sculpture does not gain
by being reullstlc, picturesque, or dec
orative; ou the contrary It Is at lt
highest when It Is Uieul, detached and
superhuman. Painting does not gain
by being categorical, but Is greatest
when it seeks something beyond the
outward, physical view." Tho novel or
tho essay depends for Its greatnesf
on its power of relating real persons,
things, and Ideus to that greater uud
deeper reality of which they are a
part. lu this sense music stands su
premo above the other arts because It
Is the most detached. The elements
of thought nnd feeling nnd action are,
in music, presented us elements. The
thought Is not thought even lu tho ab
stract, for it is not "ubout" unythlng;
the feeling Is not actual feeling und the
fiction Is not real uctlon. Euch of
these properties, or states, of the hu
man beings Is hero expressed in its es
sence, detuelted from ull nctuul munl
festittlon. None but the highest type
of mind, none but a heart full of deep
human sympathy, none but u vigorous,
militant spirit, could have conceived
and brought forth such compositions,
for exumple, as the third uud ninth
symphonies of Beethoven ; yet they nre
nothing but sound neither the Intel
ligence, nor the feeling, nor the action
