THE EAGLE: WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER U, 1894.
... : ,; there is the man reseats chairs, the man who polished up metal signs, the wandering' plumber who repairs leaks at non-union rates, and the woman VJio is introducing1 prepara tions for the complexion. The latter takes the f'lady of the house" into the kitchen, induces her to jsteam her face over a pan of hot water and then ap plies various creams, powders and per fumes. When the lady of the house has been done up in white enamel and is afraid to smile for fear she will break her face, the agent departs leaving the house strewn with advertising matter. But of all the queer ways of making a living two boys on Fifth avenue had the queerest It was so queer that it smacked of swindling. A well-dressed little man at the Ran ' dolph street corner stopped for a mo ment to allow a car to pass. While he was standing there a boy edged up be hind him and hooked to his coat tail a card on which was printed in black letters: BOLD. As the man went across the street several persons saw it and turned to laugh at him. The second boy was waiting across the street. He ran up to the man and said: ''Mister there's a card hooked to your coat behind. Le' me take it off." "Goodness me!" said the little man, "how did that get there?" "One of them tough lads put it on, I guess." "Confound them! Well, here boy, here's a dime for you." "Tanks, mister." Two minutes latter the good little boy hung in on a fat man and his part ner on the other side of the street in tercepted the fat man and collected a nickel, lie had to ask for it, but he got it. A man would be a brute to refuse a nickel to a poor boy who has done him a great service. Chicago News. With tho Naval llcscrve.

"One day, just after we had taken on board themembersof the New York reserve, I asked one of tho old tars how ho liked our new friends. "Don't like 'em at all,' he said.

They Take the Fluce of the Club-Room of the West. The restaurant or tea-house in China takes the place of the western club- room, write Messrs. Allen and Sacht- leben in the September Century, de scribinj their bicycle tour in Asia. All the current news and gossip is here circulated and discussed over their eat ing and gambling. One of their games of chance, which we have frequently noticed, seems to consist in throwing their fingers at one another, and shout ing at the top of their voices. It is really a matching of numbers, for which the Chinamen make signs on their fingers, up to the numeral ten. The Chinese of all nations seem to live in order to eat, and from this race of epicures has developed a nation of excellent cooks. Our fare in China, outside the Gobi district, was far bet ter than in Turkey or Persia, and, for this reason, we are better able to en dure the increased hardships. A plate of sliced meat stewed with vegetables, and served with a piquant sauce, sliced radishes and onions with vinegar, two loaves of Chinese mo-mo, or steamed bread, and a pot of tea, would usually costs us about three anda quarter cents apiece. Everything in China is sliced so that it can be eaten with the chop sticks. These we at length learned to manipulate with sufficient dexterity to pick up a clove's egg the highest at tainment in the chop-stick art. The Chinese have rather a sour than a sweet tooth. Sugar is rarely used ir. anything, and never in tea. The steeped tea-llowcrs, which the higher classes use, are really more tasty with out it. . PERIE.R AT SCHOOL. How the Mew President of France Once " Flunked." Once, during the school days of the new president of the French republic, his professor in geography asked him: "Pericr, give us the exact position r.nc indicate the latitude of the Gambiei group." Casimir-l'erier crossed hi arms tightly upon his chest, looking very perplexed. One of his neighbor, whispered to him a wrong answer whereupon the professor gave him the exact position of this little group, which belongs to the more important French establishment of Tahiti, and, after a short pause, and with a little point of irony, said: "You ought to know that, I'erior, because it is thanks to your grandfather that France ac quired the ascendency in these part:; of the world; it was through his eiforts and entreaties that the dusky queen of these islands was induced to come to France; and the men of my genera tion still remember the comical songs which celebrated the event." Ferier blushed considerably; but, holding his head still higher, answer the professor with his quick and peculiar diction: "I will most certainly go over this les son again and try to be more proficient at the next lecture; but, so far as the deeds of my grandfather go, they are so numerous that I am not old enough yet to know them all" .1 JOHN CARSON, fb Parlor iJ Saloon Corner Broadway and Texas Sts.
