Grand nanitls Daily Democrat TRICKS IN HOUSt DEALING. How the Lamb Am Smoothly Shorn tli Shurp Tradtrn. by I heard of u kiik m it li hunko patno that waaworked on a temlerfuot from tho east who tamo to Kentucky to huyahtock farm and hto tho breeding of trotters upon an extensive scale. Ho hud nioru money than brains, but could not bo Instructed In the horse) business. Ho taught ft bluo grass farm and t lun looked around for stallion to put at the head of his stud. Ho sought tho advice uf an expert. Tho ex pert told him ho knew of ft very finely bred son of tho great Hambletonlau that could Ihj bought for ". It was a raro bar gain, and tho tenderfoot thought o too, Tho expert thought so much of tho animal that ho would go halves with tho young breeder. Tho expert left the tenderfoot to study over tho matter, seeing that tho game was landed. Then lie proceeded to buy tlio liorso in question, set-ret ly, for fS.OOO Tho t ratio was made between tho tender foot and tho ostensible owner of tho stal Hon on a basis of :.1.000, tho tenderfoot putting up fi:,fii0 and tho expert also putting up $12,500 (so tho tenderfoot be lieved). Tho result was that tho expert mado $4,500 clear and still owned one-half of tho stallion, which he finally disposed of to bis partner for flo.OOO, leaving him a clean $19,500 tin the deal. This Is as truo as gospel, and were I to mention tho name of tho horse it would bo recognized by ev ery man who knows tho trotter. A great many of tho fancy saddlers and coach horses seen in tho parks in rsew York and Philadelphia are boutrht tin at the Kentucky wiles bv shrewd dealers, who dock their tails, train them a few months and then ship them east to sell to million aires. Tho Kentucky horse, however, does not thrive In tho cities and is soon worn out. Hobbed of his native bluo grass, ho gets thin In llesh and unpleasant to look upon. 1 hen perhaps the same dealer who took him rast will buy him again at an enormous reduction, oritur him back to Kentucky, fatten him up and sell him again at a profit. A certain Kentucky dealer sold a fancy gelding in New York a year ago last fall lor $1.5oo. Tho animal was ridden to death and broken down by bad c-aro and a few months later was sold to tho same dealer for $.'500. The dealer brought tho horse to Kentucky, turned it out in a blue grass pasture for several months, and soon it was fat and sleek again. Then the hor.-o was shipped back to New York and sold for $1.200. Cincin nati Tribune. ABOUT STREET BEGGARS. Even If They Are Impostor Their Life It Anything hut l'.asy. A man who makes a practice of irlving aliiH to almost every beggar that accosts him on the street has a unique explanation for his action. "Street In-gging is tho hardest work In tho world." ii' - 'Supix'sing 7i jH-r cent or all tl.e (M g-jirn In tho business to bo Impostors, what do you observe? "A woman crouching all day over a huril.v gurdy, waiting for thoennles that are dropped into her tin receptacle; men standing in the byways and on dark street corners In the cold without an overcoat asking you as you pass to give them u dime to buy a cup of coffee. "Suppose they make $1 a day that way If you think that 's aeomfortable business just try It for an experiment. Don't take any n-ckoning of tho Itard things that are said to them. i .100 soi .in Heroines calloused under such a f lrahi. but ji:. t look at it from tho standpoint l tht amount of hard work In volved and the discomforts from cold and esp isure. "You'lls(Kn come tothoconclusion that almost any kind of manual labor is lighter than street begging, and for that reason I never inquire whether a beggar is descry lug or not. If ho takes to tho business as a matter of choice, ho deserves all ho can get." "liut sujihiso every man should take your view of it! lleggary would boeonio tho most profitable business that one could engage In." "Ah!" said tho philosopher, "but how many men take tho trouble to think of it P Tho discovery is mine." Washington I'ost. A Tea Sorting: Machine. Some Interest has been created by the announcement that a tea sorting machine has iH-en invented in India. From tho de scription given this machine consists of two angular steel frames measuring 8 feet long at tho top and l3a fi-et at tho base, fetanding 2l2 feet, high, placed opposite each other and staid together two foot apart. Pot ween tlieso operate with aro clprocatlng motion two long licht steel frames, which aro tho sifters, placed ono alMivo the other, those working on four oscillating levers, securely fastened to tho angle steel frame inside at four points by strong ease hardened pins, upon which they net from the center. The upper sifter M firmly secured by trunnion brackets on tho side to the levers at tho top. and the lower one in the same way underneath. Doth sifters have an independent action and work in oppito directions at 100 to HO revolutions per minute. The upper sifter inclines toward tho crank and the lower one from the crank, ami these aro fitted with four sizes of meshes, two in each, the trays being interchangeable slid ing trays and underneath.

DAINTIES LOVED BY GOURMETS. 1 fathered Product of Certain Place High, ly Prixed by I'pieuren. Among specialties ruga rdlng birds may ho mentioned the capon of .Surrey and Sus sex and the turkey and geeso of Norfolk and Suffolk. Passing through Kssex, ono may see whole "herds" of geeso and ducks in the liUds there fattening without thought of the future. .Most of these birds, writes Dr. Doran, are ' foreigners." They aro Irish by biith, but they aro brought over by 6teani, in order to bo perfectod by an English education, and when tho duo Btato of perfection lias been attained they are transferred to London. Dunstable larks aro a dainty much cov eted liy epicures, and London is annually supplied from tho country about Dunsta bio alono with not fewer than 4. 000 dozen Hut tho enthusiasm with which tho gour mets speak of these birds Is far exceeded by tho Germans, who travel many hun dred miles to Lelpslo niiroly to eat a din ner of larks. Such is tho slaughter of larks at tho Leipslc fair that as many as half a million aro annually eaten, principally by tho booksellers frequenting that city. Whittlesey mere, in Huntingdonshire, now drained, once produced tho finest ruffs and reeves, a delicacy of which Princu Talleyrand was extremely fond, his regu lar allowance during tho season being fvvo a day. An amusing anecdote is told of a young curate who had coiuo lip to bo ex amined for priest's orders and was asked to dinner at Hishopthorpe by Archbishop Alarkham. Out of modesty ho eon lined himself exclusively to tho dish beforo him till ono of the resident dignitariesobserved liim. Hut it was too late. The ruffs nml reeves had vanished to a bird. A similar talo has been told of another Jelicato morsel, tho wheat car, popularly Joslgnatod "tho English ortolan." A rscotch ofliecr was dinlni! with a certain I-iord (.icorgo Lennox, then commandant at Portsmouth, and was placed near a dish of wheatcars, which was rapidly disappear ing under his repeated attentions to it. Lady Louisa Lennox tried to divert his notico to another dish, but "Na, iia, mil- leddy, ' was tho reply. 'These weo birdio will do verra week " Exchange. MRS. HILL'S VISITORS. The Iteuutiful I Incsse With Which She Kehuked Their Impertinence. Mrs. .1. .1. Mill, wife of tho now million airo railroad magnate, Is a person of a great deal of keenness, and nobody knows it better than a Washington woman who fpent a summer out in St. Paul once up cn a time. This YVashlnaton woman had met Mrs. Hill and choso to consider her one of tho newly rich and not to be naniet In tho same afternoon with tho people of her set. Hie Washington woman had a friend with her for a few days, and In showing her the Mghts gl the town too?" her to Hill house. Mrs. Hill was very gracious, though the Washington woman scarcely concealed the tact that curiosity alono prompted lwr visit. She and her friend were shown all over tho houso and asked questions that would have been really In excusable in any ono butn woman of so ciety. ! inally she asked to bo shown Mrs. Hill's jewels. Mrs. Hill's jewels, by tho way, aro among the finest in tho country, and Mrs lllll is fond of them with a connois seur's prido and not with tho vanity of n woman fond of adornment. Mrs. Hill left tho room, and in a few moments the jew els wero shown, hut it was a maid who shovvid them. Tho hostess did not appear again, and as the two women went away the maid asked them politely if they wished to see anything else. I'crsonally I think congress ought to vote Mrs. Hill a medal. Washington Post. i:nglifth Weavers 1820. I am SI years of ago and can remember hand loom wcavirs and weaving ns far hack ;u liC'O in East Lancashire. I have n painful recollection of the poverty and dLstn ss ainoTig hand loom weavers. Our family consisted of father and mother and eight children, all dependent upon hand looms. Urcakfast in our homo was oaten meal porridgo sweetened with treacle, eaten with small beer; dinner, meat only on Sunday, and that chiefly bones boiled into soup; tho rest of tho week's dinners, potatoes and oaten cakes, seldom butter and never cheese; supper, similar to breakfast. The quantity of theso was stint ed, so that wo often hail not enough to eat. As to wages, an ordinary man could not earn inoro than 10 shillings jht week, and often he could not procuro enough warp and weft even to earn that The Idea of ' putting 1 r.otes U-tween slices of bread and butter" is simply monstrous. In re spect to tho statement of kindness and sympathy between employers and em ployed, 1 cm only recollect grinding pov erty and cringing dependence, which had tho effect cf taking away a man's self ro- spect. When I think of my early days poor fond, pi;,r clothing, poor homes, no tlay school I do not wish to sco the "golden ago" back again. Spectator. ltr:we Amerh-Hns, All. No P. -ilon Mildier has a I Itter word for his ancient foes. I'or t heir inlsrortut.es ho has only sympathy and for their bravery only admiration. Webster, speaking of Sum ter and Marion In yonder s.-nate. gloried In them as " Americans all, whoso fame is no more to be hemmed in hy state lines than their courago and patriotism were capable of being circumscribed within tho same narrow limits." And having regard only to their valor and their manliness we, too, glory In these later southrons in ''Americans nil," and, so far as In us lies, forgiving them their trespasses as wo trust that ours may bo forgiven, we stand With them side by side In theso tender ministration over the dead.
