w People who happen to he on Fifth
avenue, Now Yoik, between 7 and 8
e o'clock every evening can see an old
fashioned carriage with two seats driv
' g rapidly uptown. On the back seat
' site an old gentleman comfortably placed,
.) well wrapped up with furs and a slouch
i't hat drawn down over his eyes. Beside
him is a younger man with an open
ut newspaper spread upon his knees and
id. an electric lamp In his hsnd. His mouth
.ty is close to his comnpanion's car so that
it the latter can hear distinctly as he reads
the evening papers above the rattle of
i the wheels of thousandq of carriages and
ti delivery wagons over the rough stone
" pavement. Between 6 and 7 o'clock
st every morning the same sight may be
ls witnessed by people who get out so
to early.
