English archbishop's attire.
"One of our archbishops," he said,

town concluded an admirable report of
his sermon with the words:

NEW YORK. There Is a man in a
big real estate Arm In the Wall
street district of New York city who
has not paid a penny of house rent for
the last ten years, although he has
lived during all that time in hand
some apartments in the most fashion
able part of town; the smallest of
which never is leased for less than
f2,&00 a year. Among the very few
who know the secret of how he is
able to occupy such expensive quar
ters free of charge he is the most en
vied man. Yet he himself finds his
good fortune something of a trial.
He does not know from one month
to the next where he will have to
move. He always is the first tenant
of all to move into the house, and
when the house begins to fill up he
knows he must prepare to get out
Then this man who lives rent free be
gins to wonder where he will have
to move to next No sooner has his
family made a circle of pleasant ac
quaintances among the other newcom
ers in a big apartment house than
they have to make some excuse, tele
phone for the moving vans, and have
their furniture taken to a new place
of abode.
his nomadic New Yorker's re
moval from one place to another does
not cost him anything, except the
wear and tear on his furniture, and
the labor of getting settled in each
new apartment His changing about
is part of his day's work and arises
solely from the fact that he is consid
ered as a mascot or a forerunner of
good fortune for a certain rich man.
who owns a great deal of Manhattan
real estate, and who Is continually im
proving It by putting up large apart
ment houses.
One of the crucial periods tn the
life of an apartment house is when
It just has been completed, and it Is
desired to fill it with tenants. All the
apartment houses owned by this rich
man are managed by the firm of
agents In whose employ Is this mascot
who never pays rent Just how the
superstition started Is not linown. but
that the man who believes in it has
grounds for such belief that are sat
Isfactoroy to himself is evident from
its long continuancee.
When a new apartment house be
longing to this great landlord is fin
ished, the lucky clerk in the agent's
office Is notified that his quarters will
be ready for him on such and such
a day. His apartment Is the first to
be completed. The other apartments
may be still In the hands of painters
and decorators and the halls may be
littered with shavings and broken
plaster. But this professional first
tenant has to have his household be
longings moved in and get them ar
ranged as artistically as possible with
Sexton Finds Ghosts in a Church
THERE are the "ghosts" in the his
torical old Chapel of the Comfort
er at 10 Horatio street, near Jackson
square, In New York City! Soren
Lindgren, who until recently was sex
ton of the little mission supported by
Ascension parish, of which the Rev.
Dr. Percy Grant is rector, has not
only seen the spirits, but he has taken
photographs of two of them.
These strange, mysterious figures,
according to Mr. Lindgren, congregate
every evening at the foot of the altar.
It is a weird story Mr. Lindgren tells
of his experiences In the church,
where he and bis' wife, who frankly
confesses that none of the "ghosts"
have been visible to her, had their
living apartments.
So Interested did the sexton be
come in the movements of the de
parted spirits that he purchased a
camera and lay awake at night to
take snapshot pictures of them. The
LIndgrens took up their residence on
an upper floor of the church last No
vember, and the presence of the
"ghosts" was revealed to Mr. Lindgren
the first night he slept there.
" 'Be not afraid,' he assured ma
'This building was once a dance haP,
and It was here that I wasted a for
tune which had been left to me by
my father, who was an Italian noble
man. I killed a man in this very
room. Yes, I stabbed him in the back,
I stole the money to buy rum, and
her I am a physical wreck.'
"Early the next night," he said, "as
the old man approached the altar I
fixed my camera in position and gave
the picture a long exposure. Mrs.
Lindgren was with me and we went
directly to our apartment and devel
oped the picture. Only the white out
lines of the man's face, head and
beard were shown In the photograph,
but by using a pencil on one of the
negatives, I succeeded in drawing an
excellent likeness of the mysterious
Elephant Collects Pennies in Zoo
rICK" RICHARDS, keeper at the
U Bronx Zoo, in New York city, be
lieved until a few days ago that the
high road to riches lay in simply
catching an elephant, hanging a tin
bank on the animal and then teaching
him to beg money from the public and
ring a bell whensoever he put a pen
ny in the bank.
Richard's faith In the Integrity of
elephants was a sublime thing, but
now 'he holds elephants to be not only
immoral, but capable of almost human
In short. It was Richards who a
year ago taught the Bronx elephant
Congo to beg pennies and put them In
a bank, for which the huge beast baa
been famous ever since. It was the
keeper's practice when the bank was
full to take Congo across to the soda
fountain nearby and buy him a quart
of Ice cream out of the day's receipts.
At this rate Congo soon learned the
value of money, and also began to
love it not for Its own sake, but for
what it brought him. When Richards
went for his luncheon a few days ago
he carefully emptied the bank, leaving
Congo with a vacant tin box.
When the keeper had finished his
meal he hastened back to the faithful
Congo, but on the way met four Ju
bilant urchins, who were dividing 60
There stood Congo, swaying mourn
fully. Beside him Sultana and Khar
toum, two other elephants, were hold
ing up their educated fellow, who
seemed 111.
A seedy man standing at the rail ex
plained the case:
"Some boys were Just In here with
some apples they'd stole, and every
time they gave the elephant with the
bank an apple he gave them a cent
an' as soon as they got bis last cent
they beat It"

THE Yemassie Haymakers, a West

city, whose members say they are

They Jammed the ferryboat. Manhat

a number of outsiders returning to

As soon as the boat atarted Charles

The negro made a feeble effort to
put his feet In the air and when he
was unable to do so he was made to

came ill suddenly and his tormentors
let him go.
It happened that Sergt. Irwin and
six patrolmen, all traffic men in citi
zens' dress, were aboard the boat, and
as soon as they heard of the court
they started a mock fight so they
could get arrested and see how the
"court" was working.
Patrolman Frltsch was promptly
nabbed as a disorderly person and
was hurried to where Ammon was
holding forth and was charged with
