LICENSED MINNEAPOLIS. ITic Flour City Seems to Be Losing Its Former Spirit of Municipal Liberality. « Hie For Revenue Only Policy Has Been Substituted and Everybody Must Be Licensed. Hie Man Who Wants to Make Two Dollars Has to Pay for the Privilege. Disappearance of the Street Fakirs and Street Merchants as a Result- Some Startling Changes. seems to be to make two dollars, now has to pay the city handsomely for the privilege. Everybody pays a license, from circus proprietors at' $1,000 a day, and saloonkeepers at 81,000 a year, down to the very peanut peddlers on the street. " There are now none of those wheels of fortune with handfuls of cheap cigars and fine-tooth combs as prizes at the street corners. The cane man is a rarity: the Indian squaw with her bead work is a reminis cence and not a reality; and the- peri patetic peddler of Jewish' extratiou with his collection of bogus Venetian and Bohemian vases is a curiosity. while the vender of statoetes of George Washing ton and Gen. Grant has totally disap peared. An effort was made even to license the newsboys, and the good hearted mayor was "last week refused the privilege of issuing free permits to peddle to indigent people that they might support themselves and not be come city charges. And "so Minneap olis has come to deserve the title of the "License City.'" and the good old days of live and let live are past. The street fakirs, or those who manage to catch the careless nickel by dint of personal application to either the reelings of charity or curiosity, are limited to what might be considered the legitimate branches of street mendicancy. The organ grinder, with his Wheezy pipes and travesties upon the "Watch on the Whine" and "Marching Through Georgia," occasionally makes his attacks upon quiet: neighborhoods and extorts his ransom fee. and the tel escope man with his elongated lemon- ade shaker, which has the magnifying powers of a kaleidoscope, occasionally collects a little crowd at the street cor ners which listens o this dissertation upod the beauties of Jupiter, Venus, Mars or Luna, but the young man with a restaurant waiter's voice who chanted off: "Here you ar-r-r. All the popular songs. 'Stick to Your Mother, Tom,' Tlimin" Up the Golden Stairs." "I'm a Dandy. But No Dude." 'Payln' My Respects-.". to Magiimis.' "Sweet. Vio lets." 'The Orphan's Lament.' words an* music for 10 cents, only a dime" — is no more. The collar-button boy only mingles with the crowd semi-occasion ally, and dodges a policeman as he would a small-pox victim. The fruit stands are not on the corners, but oc cupy -tore front- and nooks in out-of the-way places. "Buya the banan" does hot greet you as of yore, while "oranges, 'ranges, 'ranges," sounds like a dim echo of some forgotten memory. Now the fruit stands are few, comparatively, and tne trade has taken on the dignit of a recognized business which afford an electric light, and a pretty sir! in a startling calico dress aud sdd.Av.coMar. to wait on you. The roast chestnut and hot peanut vender seems disheartened and not inclined to attract attention. He is licensed, c and. realizes with hu miliation that his presence i- only per mitted in consideration 'of the pay ment of a monthly tribute to a great municipality which would otherwise refuse to tolerate him. The flashy and obtrusive young man with his tray of flash jewelry slang before -111111 seldom annoys you. His Lake George diamond-, Centennial sleeve buttons, and fish-scale solitaires seems to have lost their fascination,- or else be realizes alas, too well, that the awful eye of the license inspector is apt to seek him out. His appeals to pur chasers to buy "gent's jewelry" are not made now in that tone of confidence which betokens a spirit of haughty independence, but rather in a pleading and almost diffident man ner, and he allows the crowd to pass hi m and even jostle him to the edge of the sidewalk. What has become of the "great Indian doctor," with his immense hat, long black hair and stenorous voice? Where is the man with a gal vanic battery,"two shocks for a nickel?" The patent necktie fiend, the cleansing fluid pirate, the. open air pedicure, the mocking bird whistler, the Turkish candy butcher— all have vanished. The gentleman with a seersucker coat and wide expanse of dirty shirt front, who formerly sold a wonderful tooth paste calculated to restore discol- ored teeth to grave stone whiteness, re move barnacles from the breath, banish tartar, and bring back lost appetites, oc casionally comes around to revisit the scenes of his former victories, but he no longer grabs the small boy and fills the urchin's mouth with lather for the edifi cation of the crowd, but dolefully sings his song from the shady side of a by street. The license system, which has been carried to such 'a limit that . a farmer is not allowed to dispose of his garden truck without he is a'"licensed peddler," has certainly accomplished some re forms and removed some annoyances, but has at the same time worked many hardships and has done a great deal towards stamping out that spirit of lib erality so characteristic of Western cities, and has substituted the cool, cal culating, grasping, penny-pinching mu nicipal methods' of the New England cities, where ice water is sold instead of given away, and where people seem to have a more affectionate regard for a cent than has been entertained in the West for the big. round American dol lar, until the cities of the Northwest began to lake on metropolitan airs. :r . -■ _- LOVE LETTERS. Gushing Missives Introduced in a . Boston Will Case. The public heard the last of . the love letters in the Codman will case ai Bos ton when Lawyer Morse finished the final batch of 1,001 letters indited by Violet Kimball to her aged lover during their intimacy, last week. This last batch showed more plainly than those read before the consummate tact with which Mr. Codman was enslaved, and the witchery with which lie was kept in such subjection, that he was ever ready to respond to the demands for money. The sensual warmth that pervades these letters was more noticeable, too, and the fact is also patent that Violet was con tinually carrying on minor flirtations. although she protests that they mean nothing and that she is still true to her "precious saint." Here is a sample of one of the first read : Hon Ante: What a day yesterday was: the happiest day I can remember. Not a shadow— peace, love ami comfort. I think yon are the best in every phase of life in this" cold world. To own you must be bliss, and when to have you talk by the day is heaven itself. "Trusting Vet. ' Love," is the song I stag to you. I shall sing only to myself till we meet again. : Violet. Next came a letter that was so ex travagantly vehement that it drew from Mr. Codman the remark: "Looks like insanity. Oh, God, help me!" Then followed letters with all sorts of insane ejaculations, but a truce follows the re ceipt of a draft or check, and the corre spondence again takes on its wonted tone of loving gush. To one of the let ters read Mr. Codman appended; .- Precious Darling: I have had ft lovely evening in your dear company, and you looked like a portrait of the queen mother of the euii-evor of Austria— only, nar.dsorr.cr. - In one very interesting letter written in Boston. Violet says: . I think, if not too tired, you can come this evening. Come straight up two pairs of stairs and at the head of the second: pair of stairs you will see a door at the back of the house. King. All is comfortable. I should like more room, but I can't have it here. -a*- Considering how small a tooth is, it is astonishing bow much ache it can hold.

Scenes and Incidents Which Hake Up Existence in the City of Min neapolis. Drug Clerks and Monday's Swollen Heads— Dude Who Must Say Grace. ' Hack Drivers Who Enow the Skeletons in Many a Secret Family Closet. Canines Packed Like Sardines in the Pound— Beating the Automatic Scale. ONDAYisour biggest and best day, not even except ing Saturday," remarked a W ash ington avenue drug gist, as he mopped the flies from the >>soda c o unter. g"The only way §1 can account gfor it is thro' jhvonien, wine t and song on ; Saturday and Sunday even ings. It may be thought by some that the boys can't get their beer and julips on Sun day, but they have w ays that the laws can never stop. I set too many of "em right on Mondays to be fooled in this matter. They go out with the girls and boys on Sunday and per haps Saturday evening ami 1 reduce their big heads on Monday." "How do you do it?" "Depends on the man and his condi tion. In ordinary cases 1 give about a teaspoonful of aromatic spirits of am monia in a glass of vichy, to be followed in a few hours by twenty grains of bro mide of potassium. A peculiar thing about eke liquor sold now is that it seems to have a very bad effect upon the action of the heart. The trouble is merely functional at first, but physicians tell me that it soon develops into a chronic disease. I often have men come in here after a spree who think they are going to drop dead on the street. One minute their hearts are beating like a trip hammer, and the next the pulsa tions are hardly discernible. I have a mixture of bromide and digitalis for these cases, and it .generally has an im mediate effect for the good. For men who are affected in that way it is dan gerous to cease using stimulants sud denly. The best method for them is to alternate whisky with two drachms of fluid extract of coca, taken at intervals of about two hours for a couple of days, and then stop. THE DUDE'S GRACE. Rather Than Lose the Girl He .Tried to Say It. Dr. F. H. Brimmer, whose profession is to teach the enterprising molar how to sprout and the bifurcated eye tooth how to take root, is an inveterate story teller, but not much of a speechmaker." During the recent session of the state dentists he was in constant demand, and on Thursday evening was one of a little private supper party. "When the cloth was removed several of the tooth carpenters make felicitous post pran dial speeches, and finally Dr. Brimmer was called out. He demurred and said he could not make a speech, hut the demurrer was overruled and he was allowed to substitute a story. He told this: A certain Nicollet avenue dude, with high hopes ami small salary, was paying assiduous attention to the daughter of a wealthy Tenth street merchant, He had succeeded in enlisting the interest of the adv. and was finally invited to join the family at tea the following Sunday. In . colored shirt, high collar, and with beating heart he took his place adjoin ing his inamorata at the tabic, but was paralyzed when the father said quietly: "Re kind "enough to say grace, Mr. Hopeful." The blood rushed to his face and he felt a buzzing in his ears, but thought of the girl and her share of the estate, and. gulping down a lump in his throat, he bent over the mahogany and mur mured: * - MA-ah there. Lord, ah there. Lord, a-a-thanks, awfully, you know." j THE AUTOMATIC SCALE. Men Who Patronize and Some Who Would Victimize. Every convention that brings strangers to the city is capital to the automatic scale man. During the meeting of the American Water Works association last week, the great majority of the mem bers, from the patriarchal Briggs and the nervous secretary to the enterpris ing drummer deposited each his nickel in the slit and watched the automatic needle point out his weight in pounds avoirdupois. The people who come in from the country towns, how ever, are the ones on whom "the scale man grows rich. The rural citizen sees the strange ma- I chine, with its assuring promise of exact weight ascertained by placing a nickel in the slit. The five is quickly forthcoming and the granger is well sat isfied with his outlay. Many devices for cheating the machine have been at tempted. A few days ago two young fellows approached the scale in the Nicollet lobby. One stepped on the platform, and depositing his nickel as certained his weight. Then the second young man stepped on, sending the needle entirely around the circle. Num ber one then got off and the needle set tled back quickly to the weight of num ber two. When the scales first appeared lead pieces. --cent pieces and two pen nies were found to satisfy the slit, but j the inventor has so perfected the toy that now a nickel is the only thing to which the needle responds. CAXIXES IX CAPTITITY. Big and Little Barkers Which Run Without Tabs. One hundred dogs penned up in r.n in closure eighteen* feet by six. Dogs of all breeds and every description. The long, lean and mangy cur, representing the nomadic - vagabond, and . the . cute little poodle or wrinkled-nose" pug, typ ical of the curled darlings of society: the spaniel in every cross and the bulky St. Bernard; lazy Newfoundland pups and spry little terriers; all huddled to gether under a raging July sun in a pen no larger than an ordinary room. "One hundred tongues lolling out in the suf fering attributed to Dives, iv -- the , hell _■ of scripture, and 10,000,000 flies and flees fighting like vultures over. carrion. This is a scene at the pound. • The pound is located on Hennepin island near the East side" pumping sta tion," and is "presided over by John Brandt, the city dog catcher, whose juvenile myrmidons scour the city and snare the unsuspecting " canine whose neck does not support the regulation tab indicating he has been licensed. It sometimes happens that even" the tab is no protection and the boys yank the dog, tab and all. in which case all the owner has to do is to put up 10 cents for a duplicate tab. give the dog catcher a going over and then take his dog home to wait for the next sally. There are three compar'ments to the pound, representing the three days dur ing which the dogs may be adeemed. The first and smallest pen cf ntains the new arrivals, and there they are im prisoned for the first day. Unless bought out they are removed the next day to the second pen, and the third day to the death pen. If still unredeemed or unsold they are taken out at break of day and shot, and eye-witnesses tell gory tales of the scenes on the steep bank of the river, as the dogs are shot and hammered into canine purgatory. The dog-catcher says drowning inflicts too great suffering, so he puts them out of the way with a bullet, and he has had enough experience to know which is the more humane method. Still, it does seem as though some better place could be devised for the detention of the ani mals during the three days of probation. TIIE MIGHTY HACKMAN. The Man Who Could Exhibit Fam ily Skeletons. The Minneapolis hack driver is the wisest man in the . city. . There, is not one of the old stagers along the shady side of Washington avenue, between Nicollet and First, but could tell facts that would cause the hair of many a staid husband or trusting wife to bristle ' up like a scrub brush. They are the"re positories of more secrets than a detect ive bureau, and for the most part they keep them well. Among this long line of Jehus are some who make a specialty of night work, and they particularly are rich in the scandal lore of the city. Ask one of them who was the closely veiled lady he picked up at the corner of Hen nepin and Third and drove swiftly down the latter street. He let her out at another corner, but he knew where she went at that dark hour and he found out who she was. How much he got for his secret is no body's business, but the income of some of these owners of nobby turnouts is very comfortable , from this one source. He has hauled Mrs. X. out to a certain street, where .Mr. Y. was wait ing and' got in. but was as dumb as a clam as to what transpired afterward. His acquaintance m the scarlet dis trict is all pervading, and not one secret of that mysterious locality is unknown to him or escapes his vigilant eye and ear. No painted denizen of Cigarette avenue is without his friendship, for there is money in it, and he knows every lover, as well as every visitor. He lias' carried* young bloods— our best young men to and fro in their midnight carousals and fin ally left them standing in a heap on 1 their own doorsteps, ami is gone before his vigorous ring has been answered, lie has waited on the sidewalk "until the last jack pot has been opened" or the last chip raked in and has more than once been invited In for a "night before he faces the cold for the long drive home. Oh, a man of parts is the Minneapolis hack driver. Shrewd, sharp and secre tive, he makes himself trusted and is re liable. What if he should write a book and give names, dates and localities! What a healthy emigration there would be! '. .... FROM BLACK TO WHITE. ' A New York Physician AVho Has Changed the Color of a Negro. Julius Caesar Peterson, of New York, is a negro aged twenty-five years. Until - recently he was as black as the ace of spades from the top of his woolly head to the tips of his tar-colored toes. Re cently he has acquired a prize in the shape of a white side face, which, as may be imagined, gives him a queer ap pearance. Strange to say. he and his friends admire the white spot im mensely. This strange white spot, which extends all over one side of Ids face and in a broad streak down his neck to his breast, is the result of a very delicate and difficult surgical oper at ion. Peterson was one of the most fashionable and fascinating of the dark dudes of Sixth avenue. Some time ago lie left his wife, having tired of her, and become amorous to a coal-black damsel, who suited his fancy better. After a while, however, when the warm weather set in and with it the ice cream season, he made up with his "old woman" and returned to the "bosom of his family."" The damsel to whom he had lately been so attentive naturally became jealous, and, having sworn ven geance, she prepared to carry it out. She procured a pint of sulphuric acid and awaited her opportunity. Tins she found one night when Peterson and his wife had gone to sleep. She stole softly into his bed room and poured the strong acid over his face. He awoke with a howl of agony. His wife awoke also, and turning up the gas (which the black fiend had lighted and turned low. the better to perform her devilish work), the colored ladies immediately Ikkl three or four rounds, in which Que ns bury rules were not strictly observed. . Meanwhile, Julius Caesar was roaring as with torment, and trying to get off the acid by washing it away with a wet towel. A policeman came in at this "• juncture and sent for a doctor at once. The poor negro was taken soon after to Chambers street hospital, where he was treated with appropriate remedies. : For a long time it was feared lie would not live. All the skin from one side of his face and neck and a large part of his. breast : was burned away. Fortunately none of the acid got into his eyes or mouth, but * one ear was almost burnt off, and the acid running inside burned the tym- ; panum, thus ruining hearing. After a . long time Peterson rallied and it was evident that he would recover if some means of restoring skin to the wide . granulating wounds could be devised. Dr. Powers, who had charge of the case decided to try skin-grafts. The . first great difficulty was to get the grafts necessary for so extensive a wounded ; surface. The negro's friends Were asked to help with little pieces of- their skin, but beyond a very few pieces -of - hide furnished by his "old woman" none could be obtained, and it was found that black skin did notjtake well. The negro was asked if he would object to having some white grafts nut on. He was much j pleased with the plan, and Dr. Powers j and his assistants furnished the grafts" from their own persons'. Small" pieces i of skin were taken from the pers_ Tbya : j peculiar pair of scissors, that Wild the '' graft after its being "detached, and served to facilitate placing the graft on - the . granulating surface .'of ■ the wound, which was the next step in the operation. As only a,.- few grafts could;, ' be put on at a time, the process took several months, but it resulted in a great success. The whole surface is now covered with white skin, and the - ; patient has left the hospital. -- ■'■ — Then the dentist was sorry he didn't : pull it. and all his jaw with it.— Drake's Magazine. •-• ..;—::-' COMPARISONS ARE ODIOUS. |toi]A^B_HM^d__|nH|_Hß__g_M_|MM A Minn eanolitan Discourses on the ip.? > - charms of Kansas City ) -}:l Social Life. The] Evolution of a Dawager From Ob- r } - scurity to Great Social Prominence. One of the Effects of Being Blessed With a Great and Sudden Bank Account. Cities Where Society People Are Ut terly Lost as to "Who is Who." HAT strange socie ty they must have (•own in City, Mo., •to be sure! I have been visiting there, and was told a host of •things; allot which lead me to think 'that Kansas ." City does not compare at all favorably with Minneapolis in any -paiticular. Its topography— is that the . right word?— is very rough an.l it is an ugly town; but how it is grow ing! the business streets of the city are so occupied with building material that locomotion is rendered difficult. Society— well, they say that it is impos sible to tell "who is who" in Minneapo lis, but our aristocrats should go down to Kansas City ! A short visit will bring them home with the word "Mixed" stricken from their Minneapolis social adjectives. Let me tell you an incident that occurred there— it actually hap pened, and I suppose it is one of many. * * An educated young New Yorker of good family went to Kansas City about a year ago and secured a position in the retail department of a furniture store, something like Bradstreet's, but not so extensive. He had letters of introduc tion which secured him entree into the highest social circles of the city. He found: the queerest people there— you should have heard him describe them. If there is such a thing as the aristoc racy of wealth it hath an exponent in Kansas City. The married ladies vied with one another in costly costumes, and even the young girls proclaimed the size of their papa's bank account by the gorgeousness rather than the elegance of their attire. And the conversation! .The men here are bad enough about talk ing business at social gatherings, but in. Kansas City! why one might imagine the reception and ball rooms of their most elegant mansions' to be the call room of the real estate exchange. - They not only talk dirt (for which, after all, we could pardon them), but I have act ually heard men in dress suits describe ing the details of "big purchase of hogs', and dreadful things like that, don't you know.; I wouldn't live in that town— had rather live in Omaha. * * * But I forget the New Yorker. Among others of the Kansas City elite whom he met was Miss Kate Dane, the daugh ter of Canute Dane, whose social rise was analogous to that of Hon. Patrique O'llelay, so ; cleverly described in Mark Twain's "Gilded Age," but •? whose financial aggrandiz me'nt had been meteoric in the ranidity and brilliancy of its coming. When Canute was poor he was provident, and -ought a twenty-acre piece of • Jackson county Missouri river bluffs, contigu ous to the prosperous village of Kansas City." .He drove an express, and his cow and his pigs found poor pasturage on the little farm, and potatoes were made to prow in a small plat thereof, by the industrious hoeing of Mrs. Canute. All of a sudden Kansas City put on city airs and Canute found his farm surrounded by business. He was shrewd and when he sold he found himself worth ?050.000 — rich. enough to go in as good society as the municipality boasted: accordingly his wife threw away her calico skirt and arranged herself according to her own idea or elegance. And Kate encased her pretty feet for the first time in real kid shoes' And the family name appeared in the next issue of the Blue Book. The Danes were in society. •-i *. * Like everybody else in Kansas City. Mr. Dane built a new house, a great big one. and in the furnishing of it Mrs". Dane had occasion to visit the store in Which our New Yorker was engaged. She had heard of Mr. Empire, and she called for him. Neither the glorious habiliments of Solomon of old. nor the gorgeous brilliancy of the tiger lily would give one any idea of the raiment of this ornament of the high social cir cles] of Kansas City. The diamonds in her ears were as large as peas, and her fingers blazed with scintillating gems. She met the. gentleman with bland cor diality and her voice was heard, afar as she addressed him.- Mr. Empire was modest, and his social intercourse had not been of a kind to prepare him for such effusiveness. Indeed, in New Yon Mrs. Dane might be considered course and blase— but those 'words are not' known in Kansas City. Well. Mrs. Dane bought several articles, carrying on _ running conversation with poor Empire. She wanted hook cases. "I haven't got my library yet," said she, "but I'm going right over to the book store anil buy it when I leave here. By the way. Mr. Empire, do you .know my. daughter?" Mr. Empire had met Miss Dane. ;- "Are you a married man. Mr. Empire?"' Mr. Empire was not married. "If I had known that I would have in vited | you to my- daughter's party!" Just Imagine Mr. Empire's feelings! W * Now. of course, it may be that every body—Kansas City -is not like Mrs. Daiie— let us hope not. Indeed. lam told there are some very delightful peo ple there, and I am sure they deserve the sympathy of the whole social world. It must be too dreadful to have to run the risk of meeting such persons as Mrs. Dane. jl should think the really nice people of Kansas City would rebel, but then, of course, business comes in. and the Dane " sort always have business connections with the men of the very best families, and you know that even in Minneapolis a great - many persons get into society " through the business connections of the men of the family. I think W. D. Howell's story of the Rise of Silas Laphaur. explains .it pretty much. Only, of course, _ very much more,so out here than in Boston. ;:••" r'T — — : — '""' " - ' •<_ < V FEMININE FANCIES. x '- : -j:»\-\ ; --S-- •- ' — -. - : " Ganzefand lace fans are evidently in tended to be more dressy, and orna mental than . useful, : and are at least thing of beauty; if not serviceable.?. . ■"-. - Enteral ds are fast increasing in favor as a fashionable precious stone, and this means that; the hired girls will soon be wearing green glass. .It is'"; the odd girl or woman of the period whose wardrobe doss not contain -at least*, two lace dresses to be worn over light-colored silks. >.t Combination costumes are nothing if not elegant, and make one wonder what ip left in materials or trimmings for the heroines of Vanity Fair.
