THE The Way Street amina Obtain and Enjoy the Amusement. In the rain and mud of ui :ht a group ol attcreu Mreafoys tood shivering at the eutfance iau Ehhi Side variety theater Ivyfwcre studying with bn,athli?s.n.'tcri'St the highly colored play-bflll," Above hung a legend to which trieir eyes seemed occasion illy attractive by a fa tal fuKcinatiou: "Admission to the gallery, 10 cts." 'Got any money, Jack?" whispered one utidging his still mote ragged neighbor. "No." was the mournful answer, "hain't got a cunt." Suddenly a little tatterdemalion rushed into the crowd. His eyes spark led with excitement aud his hair stood fircely up through the holes in his hat. ''Smv, fellers, lend me three cents, I've got seven." He was greeted lv a chorus ol" Wot yer givin' us? Wind? "Pll pay yer to-morrow, honest, soon's I've sold my papers." "Sure now?" "Yer bet." "Here yer are then.'' said the crowd as the three coppers were counted out into his grimy luud. "Don't yer lorget "and as he v.n ishediuto the theater with a wild whoop of triumph the same voice yell ed after him "I'll kuock thestuffluout of yer, if yer do." There was a dismal silence as the boys gazed enviously at the closed door of their paradise It was broken by a sound of subdued snivelling. 'Wot's the matter wi yer?' anda lit tle fellow hardly eight years old was dragged out from a dark corner. "I wants to go ter the shovv," he blub bered. "They say it's a bully old piece. I've sprnt all my money. I wos hungry an' I couldn't help it." "Yerihink we're Wanderbilts, do yer. Wot yer makin such a nise about ? Take this aud stop yer jaw." One cent, two, three dropped into his haudh, and his dirty face began to beam through his tears. "Say, yer'll waut this," lie said hes itatingly. "O, none uv yer taffy now. Go it, little feller," aud the door closed be hind hiin, while the boys beat their broken shoes on the wet pavement to drive away the chill. Meanwhile their beneficiary was climbing a steep flight of narrow, dirty stairs. Keener nostrils would have detected a smell which grew stronger and stronger as the gallery was approached. "How'd ye get in ?" greeted him as he climbed over the seats and wedged himself into a crowd of his compan ions. But he had no words to spare for his eyes were riveted on the stage. The shaky, dilapidated scenery seemed to him as real as the beauty wf the heroine on whom he ga.ed en tranced without a thought of rouge or pearl powder. The loud-mouthed-vi Main, evidently saffering from too much beer, was to him the very cm bouiment of a depraved aristocrat. The humble laboring man who posed as hero, clad in a maimer that the workingtneu would despise, enlisted Hie boy's earliest sympathies from the first. The gaudi y attired men and women who smoked cigarettes in the boxes, with their feet on the chairs, were to him real live "swells." Throughout the house every man wore Lis hat. A departure from the custom wouid have beeu considered a breach of etiquette. It was also con sider d i he "correct thing" to crunch peanuts audibly aud scatter their shells to the right and left with au utter disregard to consequences. But the gallery was the feature of the house. A tier of eager faces, massed closely together, rose from front to rear, behind which towered the forms of "special o Ulcers armed with canes. Packed like sardines in front a row of little fellows with ex cited faces hung over the railing in ; their shirt sleeves, breathlessly watch ing the play, now silent as death, again howling like little fi -uds. The well-dressed villain met with their disapproval. Lofty, moral and heroic sentiments were cheered again aud again. The "fuuny man" who tum bled over chairs, sat down in was" tubs, and was beaten with broom sticks by irate women, never failed to out peals of laughter. The play grew more thrilling. TIip villain eloped with the ife of the upright laboring man, who was a wi- SATIHDAY MíílIT UALLCRY. ncr, dressed as miners invariably are, iu a spotless white shirt, velveteen trousers and elaborate leggins. The villain's servant liad kindly dropped a letter into (he miner's cottage, which informed the injured hi sbaud that his mns'er would come for au interview with the wife on seeing a light displayed. The stage lights were turned down. The miner made the signal. It was evi dent that there was to be "b-l-l-lood." A breathless silence reigned in the durkues of the gallery. A door op ened, and the villain entered, while the miner concealed himself. The suspense was too much for one of the gallery gods, and he yelled, "Cheese it, cully, he's laying for yees." Then the villain proposed to turn the miner out. "You'd better not," replied the latter patting his biceps muscle, and this brought down the house. "Puuch his head," shouted the boys. The miner produced a pis tol and the gallery went wild. "Shoot him!" "kill him!" "he ain't uo good!" Their sympathies wee on the side of suffering virtue. At last the miner aud villain confronted each other with pistols. The gallery wa3 still as death. Every eye was strained and every mouth was opened. But at the faial instant the heroiue rushed iu aud threw herself around the miner's neck. "You must shoot through me," she cried, in tragic tones, A deep gloom settled upon the faces in the gallery aud a disgusted voice exclaimed, "That' a h 11 of a fight," to which another replied, "It's a stand off." The vi lain remarked several times that he had "deeply wronged" everybody, and proposed to "atone by a life of penitence." He was listened to with impatient disfav or, and frequently requested to "cheese it" aud "go hang himself." But by midnight everybody in the play was successfully killed or made happy. The gallery gods dropped their last haudfuls of peanut shells on the heads of the people below, jumped over the wooden benches and hustled their way out. They tumbled down stairs, stopped to adjust one or two "affairs of honor" on the sidewalk, and then disappeared iu the darkness aud the snow. 2V. Y. Tribune. A tnllfornii netting' story. John Mackay, the mining million aire, has in his employ at Carson, Ne vada, an expert named Maurice Hoe flinch, who always offers to back his opinions by be ting. This annoys Mackay, who dtes not like to be dis puted, and is further fretted by the fact that Hoefiich usually proves to be in the right. One day Hoefiich was playiug with au enormous grass, hopper. It could jump over twenty feet, and he said : "I'll ped you $50, Mr. Mackay, dot you can't find a hopper to beat him." The rest of the story, as told by the Appeal is ns follows : Mackay sent a trusted emissary down to Carson Val ley to secure a ronteHant. The man spent nearly a week catching hoppers. Mild reported that the best gaitauy of them had was seventeen feet. He doubted if a bigger jumper could be secured. The next day he had about a dozen hoppers, aud Mackay gave them quar ters iu his room as Vauderbilt would have stabled his stud. Each had a cigar box to himself, and every morn ing they were taken out aud put through their paces. It, was impossi ble, however, to get one tojump over eighteen let. Mackav was iu des pair; but one morning a hopper sniffed a bottle of ammonia on tne ta ble and immediately jumped thirty feet. Next day Mackay announced to Hoefiich that he was ready for the match. The expert came before the time with his pet hopper. Not fiud- iug Mackay in, lie noticed the botile of ammonia. A light broke upc' him. Grabbing the bottle he rrwne(l to a drug store, threw aviy the ammonia, aud ordered it ?dcd with chloroform.; Mackiy on arrived with a half dozen mining superin tendents whom head invited to see hi u have som witn Hoefiich They were hwrdly seated when Hoe fiich cainanwUh a cigar box under his arm- "I as a little late, Mr. Mackay, but I am here mit der hopper and der coin " He laid down the money which was covered promptly. Mackay got be hind somebody aud let his hopper sniff at the ammonia bottle, which held Iloeflich's chloriform. Time be lag caltod tba hopper wore placed side by side ou the m'azza. and at the word "go," each was touched on the back with a straw. Iloeflich's entry scored twen .our feet. Mackav V gave a lazy lurch of some lour inches, aud folding its legs f. II fnst asleep. Good O ii na Ins;, A geutleman well known in this city as a "red ho" republican and some thing of a betting man, after an ab sence of several years, returned to the city of his younger days early iu the president'rtl campaign. Early in the summer he made nt wagers on (he general result, but most of'ds money was placed on the result in New York' He must have had several thousand dollars at s like on the turn of the political wheel of fortune in this state About a week before elec tion day a democratic friend asked him if he was not carrying all of his eggs in a somewhat frail basket, say- iug that New York state was even more likely to go democratic than re publican. In support of this it was said that New York cily would give at least sixty thousand democratic majority. Uuon this the backer of re publicanism said: "Have you a pencil and a note book?" "Yes." "Take them out aud write down what I tell you." The pencil and note-book were tak en out aud he dictated as follows: "New York will give Hancock a majority of-Have you got that down?" "Yes." "Forty one Have yout got that?" "Yes." "Forty-one thousand oue hundred and forty-one." "All right; just look at those figures after election." And when, on Thursday moruiiig, his democratic friend took up thd Advertiser, rc read the figures of Hancock's majority as returned at the police headquarters at 41,326. A man that can guess the majority of New York city within 185 on h poll of ove, 200,000 vetes has a right to back hi figures with his money. If any one doubts the truth of this little tale, he can call at this office and see the mem orable figures, 41.141, as they were written ten days before the election day -Mmira 2V. Y. Gozete.

Miss Chaffee has been educated in Europe, is the ouly daughter of her father, aud is the owner aud mistress ol a beautiful home here iu the fash ionable part of New York, which, with its elaborate decoration and fur uUhiug, cost little less than $100,000, Senator Chaffee has been very .ill for several years past with chronic in fl.imnmtion of the bladder, aud his daughter has given him careful aitcn dou and home comforts.

A Queer Matrimonial Schema The books of a corporation styled 'The Matrimouial Bcuefic Company" opened yesterday for membership. The temporary office of this strangely named institution is at No. 335 Vine street, but it is proposed to rent com modious headquarters at Pike'sOpera House Building as soon as business gets brisk enough. When the repor ter's attention was directed to the concern by au advertised notice in the preii, be thought tome ouo was play- ing a practical joke. Ii was learned by subsequent inquiry that the "Mat rimonial Benefit Company" was a duly incorporated body, tha char ter member being Lewis Barnard. A. McMicken, Jr., J. II Marrew, Joseph Seiter, aud W. C. Smith. Lewis Bar nard said the scheme was a grand one aud, what was more, it was unique Thr society was a mutual benefit one hu characteristic being to pay the benefit on the marriage of a member instead of at death The capital stock was to be $2.000. The initial cost ot membership being $5, with au assess ment of $1 on the marriage of a mem ber. What tools the members would be to remain single when they could get $1,000 by getting married! Sup pose they all got married at once! Where would the assessments come from? But perhaps Lewis Barnard and his compeers have bauded them selves together as philanthropists, to open a way whereby all the old maid can find husbauds and happiness. Their society ought to bo :alled "The Organization for the suppression of Single 13les8edues3."
