A down-town pawnbroker, speaking
of this class and their miseries, related
a pitiable story to a Gi.ore reporter,
*• It was about a year and a half ago. a
-1 remember the circumstance," lie said,
••when a pretty, modes! girl, about
nineteen years of age. apparently from
the country and innocent of the wick
edness of city lite, came into our place
of business. With great timidity she
produced a trinket from the folds of her
dress, and asked if -he could secure an
advance upon it. The article was highly
prized, perhaps a token from a departed
parent or a lover, and the girl was
greatly surprised on being informed
that we could advance only a dollar.
The jewel was parted with, though,
and the needed money secured. She
was working, she said, but could hardly
make a living. An increase of pay had
been promised her in a few days and
she would redeem her pledge. The
month had nearly rolled round when
she called again, bin was paler and
thinner. Her wages had not been in
creased, but she had managed to gather
together a sufficient sum
ro i:i'i>i:r.M nun Tur.Asrnt:.*
During the next few months tho
trinket was in our possession and re
deemed many times, the girl on each
successive appearance looking weaker
and more dispirited. As is always the
case, the keepsake was pawned once too
often; the month passed and it was still
in our safe. We kepi it several weeks
longer and finally placed it in the show
case. During this time I had often
speculated upon the fate of the poor
girl, only to have my curiosity gratified
lather unexpectedly and to my dis
comfort. She appeared at the door one
afternoon in a carriage, accompanied by
another woman, and entered the store.
She was nicely dressed and appeared no
longer in want, but her air of innocence
was wanting, and the general appear
ance and demeanor of her companion
told but too plainly the late that had
befallen her. The keepsake was pur
chased and with tears in her eyes she
left the store.
"This is only one of the many cases
we have every day before us," he con
tinued, "and we have a vast amount of
misery thrust upon us. Among the
poor working women and girls are found
the most disheartening eases, and with
holding condemnation, we barn not
only to pit} the few that do fall in the
great battle against poverty, but to have
increased respect to: the many who so
bravely contend against poverty and
sin. with but little iii prospect for them
that is brighter than death."
Though there Is little that could be
called comical in the daily life of a
broker, all cases coming under his
observation are not as sad as the cne
cited. Careless, happy, go-lucky gambler,
whose personal property consists of two
diamonds, a watch and chain and an
old revolver, has these articles in and
out of pawn every few days, and cares
but little where they are. It seems to
be an unwritten
LAW AMONG PAWXISP.OKEKS
that one-fourth of the actual value of
any pledge is all that any broker will
offer, but in the gambler's 'case an ex
ception to the law proves the rule. He
is a regular customer, always redeems,
and never grumbles about the interest
chanted, and his broker will actually
advance him money above the value of
bis pawns. The amount he receives ou
each article was long since established,
and when he rushes in. divests himself
of his valuables and places them on the
counter, the clerks know just how
much to advance, and the transac
tion is consummated without a word
on either side. He is often too deeply
engaged in gaming to take the goods j
personally, and it is not uncommon to |
see the colored porter of a poker room '
to serve as his proxy, the articles being !
so often in "pawn that every clerk j
Knows them at once. During the last
few years the number of pawnshops
has * greatly increased, aud it
is a paying business. The
rates of interest are enormous,
and in cases where the pledge is not re
deemed the broker sells the article and
obtains a handsome return, as it is sel
dom a good price is paid for an article
when pledged, 'llie man behind the
counter must be dead to sympathy,
oblivious to pity and hardened to insult.
He must stand behind the counter with
perfect self-possession. If he says "$2"
there is no use to request $-.50, and the
customer must accept of the inevitable
and will in the majority of cases part
with his treasures before leaving the
shop.

THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: SUNDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 23, 1888.— TIIIRTY-TWG PAGES.
BUSTLING NORTH ST. PAUL
A City of No Mean Proportion, in
Itself.
ONE MILLION IN TWO YEARS.
A Healthy, Steady Growth That Au
gurs Well for the
Future.
The progress of North St. Paul dur
ing the year 1883 has been fully up to
the promise of its marvelous begin
nings in the previous year. In May.
IS-37, the first operations in the line of
building up this manufacturing suburb
were inaugurated. The North St. Paul
Land company had purchased of Henry
A. Castle nearly 1,000 acres of land one
mile northeast of the city limits of St.
Paul, on the Wisconsin Central railroad,
and platted it. into an extensive townsite,
The work of ]
i m provement I
went on so
vigorously
that by Oct. 1,
1887, at the
close of build
ing operations
that season,
over twen
ty-two miles
of streets had
been graded,
five miles of
sidewalk laid,
ten factories
built and in
operation, two
hotels, a fine school building, seven
churches, live depots, more than fifty
stores, and, perhaps, 300 dwellings bail
been erected. This growth was phenom
enal, unprecedented, even incredible to
all who had not actually witnessed its
progress or results. The doubt remained
whether it was justified by the facts,
and whether it would be maintained.
When the comparative dullness in real
- state matters came in 1888, the remark
was very general that if North St.
Paul '-held it- own*' it would be
doing remarkably well. But the
record of the season just closed
shows that it has done far more than
this that it has progressed in actual
improvement and in the solidification
and crystallization of its elements of
prosperity to au extent that removed all
doubt a.-, to its permanent success. The
following are among the improvements
made at North St. Paul during IS88:
The J. G. Earhuff Organ and Piano
company established, occupying a live
-tor* brick building which cost $20,000,
employing eighty men. producing eight
organs daily, and using nearly $100,000
capital in its business.
The North St. Paul Manufacturing
company established, occupying exten
sive buildings in the manufacture of
packing boxes, employing ?J.*3,000 capi
tal and twenty to thirty men.
The Phoenix lion Works company, re
moved from St.Cloud,occupyingoneand
Two-story new brick buildings, seven in
number, in tie* manufactuie of milling
macninery, with a working capital of
about $100,000, and employing 80 to 100
men.
Several minor manufacturing estab
lishments, all prosperous and progress
ive.
About two miles of wide and beauti
ful streets in the business center re
duced to an easy, permanent grade and
provided with sidewalks and cross
walks.
Side hacks laid and grading done on
the tract of twenty-two acres reserved
tor tin* Wisconsin railroad, pre
paratory to the erection of its extensive
car -hop- in the near future.
A bank established, organized under
the state laws, with $25,000 capital. A
flourishing building association in full
running order, and other financial In
stitutions inaugurated.
A new hotel, tin* Commercial house,
built by private enterprise and opened
to a prosperous business.
Two apartment houses containing
thirteen tenements and a store, con
structed at a cost of $18,000.
Work well advanced in sinking an
artesian well, with a view of supplying
the prospective city with water, and a
contingent possibility of striking natural
gas, the much-sought desideratum of ail
this region.
Extensive improvements on the shores
of Silver lake, which lies embedded in
the northern section of the town site,
a; i lends a feature of beauty to the lo
cality, which is destined to make of
North St Paul one of our most perma
nently popular suburban resort-.
Ten thousand shade tree- planted
along the streets and avenues of the
embryo city, adding greatly to its at
tractiveness.
A town hall and engine house costing
$3.000, built and supplied with an ef
fective fire engine and complete ap
paratus.
Twelve two-story brick stores, a two
story brick printing office, and fifteen
frame stores built, nearly all two stories
high, and all of substantial construction.
Seventy dwellings built and occupied
by their owners, many of them, notably
those of Editor McKenney. of the Sen
tinel, and Dr. X. S. Lane, fully equal in
architectural design and finish to the
better class of city residences.
In the new .buildings and improve
ments mentioned in the above sum
mary, at least $301,000 in cash has been
expended during ISSS. which, added to
$650,000 expended the previous year,
ikes a grand total of about $1,000,000
actual investments, beside- perhaps al
most an equal amount in machinery,
material, merchandise, and other tangi
ble property. Besides these entirely
new structures, all the previously built
factories, business buildings and resi
dences have, of course, been materially
improved during this, the second year
of their existence— so that, upon" the
whole, the town of North St Paul en
ters upon the new year of I>*-'.' in a con
dition of increased solidity and pros
perity which few communities can boast
of excelling. Its prospects for the future
can be safely measured by its achieve
ments in the recent past
Robert Seeger.
It is perhaps not generally known
that the city of St. Paul is the possessor
of a manufacturing institution quite
unique, which in its way reflects
great credit . upon the enterprise
of its proprietor, and at the same
time redounds favorably to the
interests of the city at large.
Allusion is made to the manufacturing
concern conducted by Robert Seeger at
No. 200 East Seventh street, the manu
factory and headquarters of Gasoline
Goods in St. Paul, and the principal
depot for the celebrated '•Jewel" Gaso
line stoves, of which 1,200 have been
sold this year, and also the main agency ■
for the Rochester Hanging and Standing
Lamps, of which he carries the largest
and most elegant variety in the city.
Mr. Seeger is also the heaviest dealer
in illuminating oils in St. Paul, his busi
ness in this respect having expanded to
such an extent as to call for the con
struction of three oil tanks, with a ca
pacity of from 300 to 500 barrels each,
now in course of completion on Hya
cinth street.
Mr. Seeger has made the study of il
luminating oils a specialty, and in this
particular he is perhaps the most thor
oughly posted man in the city, his suc
cess in all that appertains to the sub
ject having been both substantial and
gratifying.
Another important feature of his ex
tensive business is the manufacture of
fine umbrellas and gold-headed canes,
and there may now be inspected the
most complete assortment of these
eoods to be found in the Northwest, in
cluding Parisian styles, and novelties of
his own design and manufacture.
OUR CHRISTMAS OBLIGATION*.
Good Deeds and Good Will Have
Always Marked the Day.
In the Middle Ages, in England, the
obligations of Christmas were strongly
marked. The old rhymster. Tusser,
born in 1515, after living a courtly life
under the shadow of the throne for
many years, says the London Queen,
became a Suffolk farmer. In his dog
gerel verses, which are still quoted
under their old title of "Five Hundred
Points of Good Husbandry," he said:
Let Christmas be merry and thankful within.
And feast the poor neighbors, the great and
the small.
In Poor Robin's Almanac for IGS4,
more than a century after Thomas Tus
ser had been merry and thankful for his
last Christmas, the same spirit of hos
pitality was enforced. "Writing of
Christmas, Poor Robin says:
Now trees their leafy hats do bare,
To reverence Winter's silver hair;
A handsome hostess, merry host,
A pot of ale. and now a toast,
Tobacco and a good coal fire.
Are things this season doth require.
But before Poor Robin had issued the
lines we have extracted there had been
written a poem which Leigh Hunt
rightly calls "the finest Christmas carol
ever written by an Englishman, 'The
Ode or Hymn to the Nativity,* " which,
although composed by Milton when he
was but a youth, contains within it as
line lines as auy he ever produced.
The universal peace that reigned
throughout the world at the date of the
Nativity is described in language that
Milton only could have employed:
Nor war nor battle's sound
Was beard the world around.
The idle spear and shield were high up
hum::
The hooked chariot stood
Unstained with hostile blood:
The trumpet spake not to the armed
throng:
And kind's sat still with aiivful eye,
As if they surely knew tbeir sovran Lord was
nigh.
