A farmer living ten miles cast of the city relates a visit paid to him Mon day night that left him minus his watch nnd what cash he had in his house , all of which is an evidence that part at least of the gang are moving eastward. Only one case of attempted house breaking was reported yesterday , and lhat befell Colonel Hayes , of thu Journal editorial force. He hud sent In " 30 , " had read the last proof and reached his boarding house on North Tenth street. The hour was 2 a. m. , and the colonel had retired and was trying to forget the trials of life , when the window to his room was raised. Mr. Hayes , being a newspaper man , had nothing to lose by the hands of n burglar , but ho thought it the proper time to ex hibit his markmanship and create an item , so , advancing to the window , re volver in hand , ho opened lire on the lhiefwho made rapid tracks up the street. The colonel is conlident that ho perforated liis man , but thcro has been no funeral announced. In police court yesterday was heard the case of Ihc chap Lewis , who was caught in the act of rilling the room of Senator Spnck. As the act was com mitted in daylight a case of burglary could not bo made to rest , but the judge hold the man under a $1,000 bond for felonious assault and under a $300 bond ns a house breaker. The burglar was then escorted to the counter jail to rest until the silling of the district court. SUTKKMK COUKTritOCEEUINOS.

The banquet and ball given by Post A , of the Travelers1 Protective association , nt the Metropolitan rink Monday even ing was a great success in every particu lar , and was attended by a host of Lin coln people , as well as the Travelers' Protective association , in large numbers. The Germauia orchestra furnished de lightful music for the promenade that preceded the banquet , and for the ball that followed. The banquet was spread by the Union League cafe , and the tables wore eli'gaut in furnishments and supplies. After a half hour with the feast the toast mas ter , President Heiskel , of the post , rappcu to order and the programme of toasts and responses was carried out. Governor Tliayer , Hon. Patrick Eagan , Hon. I. M. Raymond. J. J. Inihoff. J. D. C'alhonn and Messrs. Cotton , Falkon- burg , Wilson and others were those responding spending to toasts. This banquet and ball was largely conceived in the idea of giving to the public the idea of the work of the T. P. A. , and to raise from the a relief fund for the benefit of he post fund of that character. Colonel A. 1' . Martin was to respond to the toast. * 'Tho Relief Committee , " but he asked leave to print his remarks , owing to the lateness of the hour. His response will pivc an excellent view to the world al largo of the relief work of the post.

Dr. ' . \ illi.im Perry , the oldest graduate of Harvard college , W ho died at Kxeter a few days ago , was the sole survivor of the pai'Uger. < who were on Robert Fulton's little steamboat when she made her famous trip down the Hudson in 1807. Ho became a passenger on the boat through accident. He had left Schenectady , where lie had been nt school , on his way home for the holidays and attorn tedious stage-ride had reached Albany. At this lime railroads had not been introduced in this country , ana in their stead journeys wore intulu by the old-fashioned stage-coach , and , where navigation was possible by river boats as th'oy were called , which made trips regulatly from point to point. Such boals made trips up from Now York to Albany and back , and by this way Dr. Perry waste to travel. Those packets were clumsy n flairs and depended entirely upon the wind. The journey was long and the passengers often late at lliuir points of destination. Arrhingal Albany voting Perry found that no boat would leave for several days as the vessel , which was billed to leave that day , had not yet ar rived from hnr previous trsn.By good chance ho happened to overhear some men talking about a new invention called a steamboat , which was to make a trial trip to Now York the next day. Ho decided to bo one of her passengers , and his story of the first trip of the tirst steamboat in America will always be re membered by those who lizard it. The doctor used to clccluro that the name of the boat was not , as has been universally stated , the Cleruiont. It was Katharine of Clcrmont , named in honor of Fulton's wife , Katherine Livingston , of Clermont , Now York. There was a lady of Connec ticut under young Perry's charge , on her way to New York city , and she agreed lo go by Ihe steamer , it took her so long , however , to get ready that morn ing it was Aug. 10 , ISO ? that when they reached the wharf the boat was steaming on" . With an accommodation that hain't served to establish a precedent for thu = o later years , Ihe oflicers stopped the vessel and sent back a small bout to take the iwo travelers on board. At first everything went smoothly , but in the afternoon the steamboat ran aground , and it was necessary to wait for high tide before she could float oil' . After that the boat got into more serious Irouble , but Mr. Perry was not then on board. At Kingston he. had decided to .stop over and visit his brother. The Kathcrino of Clermont continued her course , but had traveled only a few miles farther when her boiler burst and stie had to be laid up for repairs for several days. Soon afterwards she began regu lar trips between New York and Albany. As to the appearance of the tiist steamer , Dr. Perry used to siiy lhat it was a rudely built craft , about one hun dred and twenty-five feet long and twenty feet wide , with side paddlewheels - wheels and a sheet-iron boiler. She could make about six miles an hour. The ma chinery of the boat was clumsy and made such a noise as to frighten the cat tle which were grazing along the banks of the river. At some places the people who gathered at the banks to see the craft wore also frightened , and lied when they behold the thing gliding along with no visible power to make it move. It is interesting to note , in connection with the story of Dr. Perry , that Great Britain did not receive her first practicable steam boat until 1312 , live years after the trial Inp of Fulton's lirst boat. It was not until 1319 that the clHciency of the pull ing craft for transportation between the two countries was made manifest. Then the liltle Savannah steamed across the ocean , making the trip in twenty-six days. Now the trip can bo made in six days. Electric Lustro Starch is supplanting all others oy its ease of use and beauty of results. How n Gamin Mnilc a Fortune. A young man without employment or visible means of support excited the sus picion of the Paris police a few days ago ; he was arrested and asked to explain how bo bad come into possession of several hundred francs in gold , which ho had on his person. Ho told a singular tale which had all the apppcaranco of a iiction invented for the occasion. lie said lhat a few days previously , while sitting in front of the ccnlral markets , opposite the Saint Eustacho church , eat ing a plate of soup in Ihe open air , he was accosted bv a well-dressud gentleman , who said to him : "Would you like to make 30,000 trancsj" "Yes. " "Then , come at once with me. " Thunderstruck at the proposition , the young vagrant followed the line gentleman - man lo a well-furnished aparlmont in the fourth story of a neighboring building. No sooner had the two entered than thu conductor said suddenly to his youthful guest : "My lad , yon must kill me. Hero is a knife. This is my mother's house. I have lost at the bourse 120,000 francs of her money , her whole fortune. Icannotand will not bear the shame and agony of her discovery of my folly , and of her ruin. My lifo is insured for 200,000 francs , more Ihan enough to reimburse her , were I dead. But if I die by my own baud , I shall forfeit my right to have the amount paid over lo her. You must kill mo. I have not the 30,000 francs which I prom ised you , but I will give you a thousand to-day , and you shall chum and get the balance to-morrow. Hero are sorao jewels. To morrow you will plunge this knife into my breast , und seize these jewels and run away with all haste. The jewels will bo missed , and it will bo said thai I was murdered by the thief. My mother will then bo reimbursed. " Such was the strange speech which a stock speculator uiado to a street va- grant . " The ofl'or was tempting. " said the in telligent gamin ; "I took Sot ) francs , and promised to call the next day. I thoug the man was crazy. The next day 1 went near the house , but I did nol dare enter. Mi' story is true nnd accounts for the money in my posscs.iion. A strict examination of the lad was then made by iho police magistrate , the name and address of the broker were taken ; an ollicor was sent to make in quiries of him concerning the gamin's romantic narrative ; the particulars were found lo bo substantiated , nnd the va grant was set ut liberty , carrying with him Ms gold , still in his pocket ! "He who is false to present duty , " says Henry Ward Beecher , ' 'breaks a thread in the loom , and will find thu ilaw when they may have forgotten its cause. " A case in point occurs to us. Mr. Wm. Ryder , of 87 Jefferson street. BuQ'alo , . N Y. , recently told a reporter thnt , "I had a large ubcoss on each leg , thnt kept con tinually discharging for twenty years. Nothing did mo nny' good except Ur , Pierce's 'Golden Medical Discovery. ' It cured me.

FIRST FACTS AND FEATURES Tnlk AVItli Snrnh Ornc Jewett Tripper - per r.apldljr Kalllng Etlwlu Booth' " ! Contribution Mar- il. i'rcston. YOHK , Feb. 13. [ Correspomlonco of tlic HEK. ] No literary announcement nailo for some time lias been the causa of more speculative t.ilk than that of the publication of the memoir * of Pope Leo XIII. It is the present intention of the publishers to issue the book early in the sprinfr , when itvil ! be published simulta neously in America , Great Uritain , France , Italy , Germany , and Spain. The work which will make a volume of nearly 500 pages , will boar the simple title of 'Memoirs of Lee Xlll. " The editorship , and , in fact , the entire literary labor tpon the book , is the work of Hcv. Ber nard O llollly , 1) . D. , the Homan scholar , whose nnmo will appear upon the title page. The indorsement of the pope con sists of the announcement that the vol- iime is "sent forth with the encourage- inent , approbation and blessings of the Holy Father1 and it has also the sanc tion of all the croat cardinals and archbishops - bishops of the Homan church. Dr.O'Rcilly lias received the peisonal co-oper- iition of the pope in the preparation of the work , and has had free aoccs to all the archives of the Vatican. The assist ance of the pope has been received at every stage of the prepress of the vol ume , oven to the signature beneath the portrait of his holiness which will servo as a frontispiece to the book. This auto graph was secured by Mr. Webbter , one of the publishers , from the pope during a visit to Home last summer. The book is dedicated TO CAItniXAL GIBBONS , who has written for it a letter of acknowl edgement of the honor bestowed anil a recommendation of the volume to the members of the church the world over. The memoirs will be known as a "jubi lee" work , and it is intended as a souve nir in commemoration of the completion of the pope's lifty years of ministerial labor. A striking feature of the binding of the volume will be the reproduction of the pope's coat of arms , which is a most elaborate piece of work of its kind. In it is a representation of the popo's mitre , with the kevs of St. Peter crossed in uoUt , surmounted bv a brilliant star , the hitter tvpical ot the pope's motto , "The lisht in the heavens. " Above thee is a branch of olive , representing ; peace ; a sprig of evergreen , denoting con stancy ; and the French tlower llcur do _ _ lis representing the royal blood of France , typical of the pone's extraction. The coat of arms will" bo stamoed on the cover of the volume in rich color ? , and will serve as a most striking ornamentation , Ihe evstet number of copies comprising the first American edition has not been li.\ed , but will probable bo 10J.OOO. The entire mannscriDt is now in the hands of the publishers and ib being placed in type as sl as possible. AtTIIOKS WITHOUT CIIEKK. As a rule one linus our American au thors ready and willing almost at any time to talk of their own works , or chat with yon as to their literary opinions. An exception to the rule is found in .Miss Sarah OrneJowett. .Modeit of the fame and success her stones have brought for her , it is difficult to induce her to talk about her ilf or her works. It was perhaps tins knowledge that made mo more desirous of learning something of the method of work pursued by her. . .MisJewell's summers arc suent in the village ot South Berwick , Me. , the country which she has made so pleas antly familiar lo us through her stones. As winter approaches , however , she moves lo Boslon , and in the home of Mrs. James T. Fields , on Charles street , she finds a most congenial abode. It would be difficult perhaps , to laid an author whose personality is > o strongly marked in her books. She is a lady possessed of the most winning manners , and her de portment is in perfect harmony with her appearance refined , genial and unas suming. Her ligure is tall , slender and supple , and a pair of durk eyes irive her face a uontier/uily cordial and frank ex pression. HOW MlsS JKWETT WHITES. "What nro your methods of composi tion , Miss Jewett ? " 1 asked in the course of our talk. "Well , as a rule I write very fast , usually with little hesitation. 1 rarely make any notes beforehand. My day's work averages from four to live hours , as a general thing. I have written over C.UtX ) words besides letters , etc. . but this only under pressure , and by emploving extra timo. A fair average would bo about two thousand Jive hundred words for - ' work , "i'cs I a daj-'s , alwajs revise carefully , working over it , and copying many limes in certain paragraphs or chapters. My other work goes to the press almost exactly as first wrilten. " "Are your character * and plots formet before writing ? " "Yes , I usually know my characters prelty well and the mam motive of my bketch before I begin , but not so mucho the detail. That forms it. elf as I wriUs. ' "Arc your stories , in the main , purely imaginative1' was asked. "Almost invariably so. A character hero and there may be fashioned -after some one , but. as a rule , the imaginative plays a goodly part in my sketches or stories , " "What time of the day have yon foum most congenial to doing literary work ? ' "I do all my work in the afternoon , from 1 o'clock or a little after , following luncheon , until 0. 1 lind it very easy tf write at night , but the temptation grows upon one , and is a great snare. But J think _ . _ _ J _ it . . depends 1 t rt _ upon i. the . 1. person i . as t f to t , greatest , uro. I think there is nothing more inter csting than followinj : what is written.nl- inoit MS if ono did it unconsciously , am read tome else's wort as it appeared on the jiapor. " MissJowL'tt's love for out-door exc > r uifo. which manifests itself chiefly in horac-hack ritliuy is well known , and she is a firm believer in the benefits of fresh air. ' 'I believe , " said Miss Jewett , in response sponseto a question as to the best form of outdoor exercise for authors , "tha mm should have all the fresh air possible but J think it is a jrreat mistake to takt severe exereiso while one is putting a great strain on the brain. My favorite mode of c\ercise is horseback riding nnd 1 think it the best , for if oneis tiret after a piece of work , driving freshens puu without taking your strength. Walk incis likewise nvcry good oxercise. ] believe in a long ride or it walk , not upoi the same day vrnen n piece of work has been done , but upon the day after. This has boon my experience , and 1 think tha of mauy others who toil with the brain , ' nud with a most pleasing smile and the parting salute of "see if 1 am not rieht , ' our agreeable chat came to an end. NEAUIKG THK SHADOWY SHOIiE. From private London advices I learn that the aged poet and philosopher , liar tin Tuppef , ISTapldly fnilinc in health and Is almost entirely broken down. 'For the last ten week * , " write" my cor respondent , bo has been siiiTering from an attack of nervous exhaustion ot the jrain , which entirely prevents him from doinp anything , lie Can neither read , write nor speak intelligibly , although ho < * quite sensible and his mind is clear. The doctor give hopes that he maj" , to a certain cxtont , recover , but hi nge , xvhich will be seventy se en ne\t July , is against him , and his daughter tells me that he is never likely to write prose or verse again. Only a few days before the illness that now prostrate * him Mr. Tap per finished his poem "Jubilate : A.lubi- Ice Offering for 1SS7. " the first copy of which was accepted by Queen Victoria , who accompanied her gracious acknowl edgment of it willi a sympathetic message of inquirv after his health. A member of his family told mo that the philoso pher's illness wasundoubtedly brought on in thu main , by anxiety about financial matters. His books have brought him " nothing for a long time , nnd "even his latest work , "My Life as nn Author , " has nt present yielded no result , although it has .been published nine months. His home at Alhury , where lie has lived so long , and where most of his books were written , is being disposed of , but it is feared that the purcha.-e money will not more than cover charges on the property and other pressing liabilities. Mr. Tup- pers's daughter Kllin is his constant companion , and watches by his bedside with loving devotion. She is the only member of the family that entertains any hone for her father s recovery ; but it will not be surprising to those who have conversed with the physicians if another month should remove the author of ' 1'roverbiul Philosophy' from their sight and that of the world. His home is a sad picture , and traces of wint meet the visitor at almost every turn. " HOOTH'S HOOKS. I hail the pleasure a few days ago of looking over some of the parcel of 700 bookb which Mr. Ed win Booth has just presented to the Winter memorial li brary at New Brighton. S. I. It will be remembered that thh library was fonndud byYilliam \ Winter , the eminent dramatic critic , some two or three years ago , in memory of his favorite sou , who was killed while coastimr near the home of his parents. Kdwm IJootn often met the little follow on his visits to his friend's house and became deeply attached to the bright and promising lad. In rcmcm brancn of his little friend tiic author has written ou the fly-leaf of each of the vol umes presented : "For the Winter me morial library , with affectionate remem brance of little 'Artie. ' from his father's friend , Edwin Hootli. " Several dis tinguished actors have already < : ent con tributions to the librarv , among them Joseph tlclTursoii , John Gilbert and Law rence Barrett. miCOMIXO BLIND. The sad information reaches me that Mrs. Margaret J. Preston , the well known southern writer , is threatened with total blindness. The trouble with her eyes has been of long standing , but it was hoped that she might recover her sight. She has entirely given up the use ot her pen , and conducts" her corre spondence and performs her literary work with the assistance of an amanncn"- sis and typewriter. She is very reticent in speaking of herself , and makes no other allusion to lier great misfortune than a touching apology to her corre spondents for answering their letters by the typewriter or through her secre tary's pen. Mrs. Preston lives in a comfortable home at Winchester , Va. , and has for her near neighbors the Lees And Carters and other old families , who have always known her. She is con stantly in receipt of jommissious from the magazine editor. * , and meets all these , o far as her strength allows her. Mrs. Prebton is past the prime of life , and is of delicate and refined appearance. WILLIAM J. BOK. Pure blood is absolutely necessary in order to enjoy pertrct health.
