I have mine direct from the thief, and it is much more reliable. All the best thieves come to j., c ,» York, and those who do not g-o into pol- itices are sometimes forced to work for their living-. The man of whom I am speaking- spent more brain tissue for nineteen dollars than was required to steal Hudson county, N. J.. the last time I observed an election over there. In the first place, I have often wondered how thieves detect plunder. Is it luck or g-ood judgment? I cannot say, but I know, their keen discernment from experience. In the winter of 'S4-'S5, I was in Chicag-o, and whereas every other man in my hotel was held up and relieved of his money I was never molested. How did the thieves know that my only coin was a counterfeit Canadian ten-cent-piece with a hole in it? And when I did get a little cash they absorbed it the very first night I ventured out of doors. It was only about forty dollars, but it would have bought me a railroad ticket to some other place, and what could a millionaire- with his entire fortune have procured more likely to give satisfaction to a Christian? But to return to my New York thief. He was strolling through one of the cross streets, off Fifth avenue, wonder. ing how it would seem to rent one of those houses and become himself the victim of robbery by his landlord. To all of us there comes that desire to see the other side of the game. We are tired of playing one part. However, circumstances brought our thief back to his own role. He saw on one of the stoops a small pine box. It did not appear to have any especial value, or why should it be left unguarded? But, with the instinct of a philosopher, he left that question for the person most likely to answer it—namely the owner. He took the box and fled. When he reached his humble lodgings he quickly made an examination of the prize. Inside the pine box was a casket of dark wood, empty. The thing looked as if it was worth about two dollars and our thief was on the point of crying out against Providence when it occurred to him that possibly the casket might have especial value to the owner. So he read the "Lost and Found" columns of the papers next morning and was rewarded by seeing the advertisement of Dr. Edward Newell, who offered a reward of ten dollars for. the return of the casket; assured the person who had taken it that it was of no value, and promised to ask no questions of him who returned it, nor even to feel his julse. Upon reading this notice the thief immediately took the casket to a pawnbroker whose liberality would not carry ately ana displayed tne casket. ±,iie cabinet maker nearly jumped out of his skin at the sight of it, and the thief was preparing to value it at two hundred dollars when the other's emotions found vent in words: "Dot vos Dr. Xe-.vell's box. Vere vas you got it?"' Well the jig appeared to be up. An ordinary, out-of-town thief would probably have dropped the box and engaged in a foot race with the honest cabinet maker. Not so with the calm, intelligent and cultivated New York thief. He always has the air of an innyccnt man, even when you meet him in Sing- Bing. "I am aware," said the thief, "that this box belongs to Dr. Newell, and I was on my way to his house to return it. I saw it stolen from his stoop yesterday, and I pursued the thief until he- dropped his plunder." "I vas in der house." said the cabinet maker. "I vas to bring der box here to mend him. und I set him on der step till I vent back und lie vas gone. He said he would gif terventy tollar to get him back," 'He has offered that reward this morning in the papers, "said the thief, calmly doubling the amount. "And it was fortunate that I brought the box here, for you can return it without suspicion and claim the reward; whereas. if I went there, a perfect stranger, aspersions might be cast upon my character. Pay me ten dollars for my share and you may have the remainder of the twenty." The honest cabinet maker scented a good trade. "I gif you seven tollar," said he. 'I will take nine," replied the thief in a tone of decision: and he got it. Did he go away satisfied with this bargain? The New York thief—and we're _ all in it—is never satisfied with anything. We always attempt to collect tolls on both ends of the turnpike. We want something for nothing. .This transaction which I am'recording is strictly business with us, and I should advise all young men who are thinking of coming to the metropolis to read it— and then stay at home. The thief went straight to theelegan residence of Dr. Newell. The docto had just prescribed something for Wall street man which would keep him from going crazy during that day, bu would make him much worse when h finally did go; and having collected a large fee and a tip on the market was ready for any other business that might come before him. To him was usherec in the thief. It happens that the collection of little odd boxes, jewel cases, etc., is the doctor's hobby. Ho is a hard man to beat on any other tack, but here he is easy. We all have leaks in our pockets somewhere, and the successful business man s the fellow who finds the most of them. "'_'Di\ Newell," said the thief, "it grieves me to think evil of a fellow creature, but I must do my duty. I am a dealer in curious cabinets, caskets, etc. This morning I was approached by a man who offered me—" "A little black jewel box," the doctor broke in. "From Egypt I- an sure.

The two most popular styles of shoes found in our shoe stores to-day are known as the common sense and Piccadilly. In them we have notable examples of the extremes that arc resorted to simply because "it is fashionable." The fundamental principles upon which both these styles of shoes were first constructed were good, but the shoemaker seems to have hit upon the same idea as did the old bachelor when he concluded that if one egg in his pot of coffee was good, two would be better, and three would make the coffee delicious, writes Avard J. Moore in the Cosmopolitan. Shoemakers now seem to be compel ing with each other to see who can put the most "twist" into a common sense or Piccadilly shoe, and. as a result tney arc suited to the fewest types of feet. J ^ Usually, the Piccadilly is but a bungling attempt at putting a pointed toc^on a common sense shoe. A foot to which the common sense shoe is not adapted will, in mos t cases, find equal discomfort in a Piccadilly.

"The same." said the thief, "and I at once recognized it as the one mentioned in your advertisement this morning." "Tell me where to find it." said the doctor, producing- a tea-dollar note, "and the reward is yours." The' thief took the bill with a manner so graceful and easy that the doctor forgot to hang- on to it. "Come with inc. doctor," said lie. "and I will show you where tho miscreant lives.

Thc3" proceeded to the shop of the honest cabinet maker, who was just wrapping- up the box. preparatory to taking it to the doctor's. He'was totally unprepared for the violent assault which the doctor made upon his person and his character simultaneously. And when it was all over they looked around for the quiet gentleman who had been at the bottom of it. but ha was not there. He was walking down a quiet street a mile or two away smoking- a good cigar. HOWARD FIELDIXG. ENATOR STEWART. OF NEVADA. J!A(.;CIE .MITCHELL, ACTP.ESS. J. HEITZ, PEDESTRIAN. shoes mentioned are usually bowed or hollowed out at the inner side of the shank, while the straight foot is in most cases quite full at the hollow unaer the instep. As the shoe is so constructed that it cannot conform to the shape of the foot, it is. consequently, pushed over until the upper overrides the sole sufficiently to make room. I have seen examples where the foot had been forced against the side of the shoe until the little toe projected beyond the edge of the sole. i he only redeeming feature of either the common sense or Piccadilly shoe is :-t ample room is provided for the •cat toe. but this is more th.in offset he smaller ones. . t; "- c Pi"shing •-ile tiie foot is "breaking-" the shoe o shape the three- smaller t$es are n- crw ajr.ir.st the shoe upner " , before the breakbG--in nro "ess THE CABEET DISAPPEARS. tho ufacturers' bottom whole- TS* *"" paracumrs. i Syndicate, Box 1565 N T. him higher than fifty cents.

HOW COTTON IS GROWN. Much Care and Work Arc Necessary In 1 Cultivation. Cotton is essentially a sun plant. After sunset, before the shadows ef night have fallen, the leaves of the cot> ton plant turn down and droop toward the stalk, as if depressed with the withdraw], of their beloved king. With the es^-liest beams of the next day's sun they straighten out and resume their daily task of growing and maturing their wonderful product Cotton is planted in April and the first product goes to market in August. During the ' intervening months i; .undergoes many interesting ch:i." ,-es. A slender trail of cra-ish-wir.;" seeds, dropped either by band or by ini-sjs'oi a 'planter." is laid in the care f nil v prepared bed of dark, rich JoaW! the nourishing- properties of the soil having been greatly augmented by expensive fertilizers. This is done early" in the ! spring, when the warmer suns and gentlj falling showers are nersuadinc- IU"O OTH E R Sarsaparilla can pnv * mice from actual cures siich -won<= derffa! statements of relief to human suffering as HOOD'S SaisapariUa an ol the long buried germs in tae earth's bosom to come to the surface. Soon the light, layer of soil is gently pnshed aside by the little tender sprouts, and rows of tiny, flat, square- looking leaves appear along the middle of the long beds. These leaves afterward become a pointed -oval in shape as the plant develops. When the young cotton has attained tho proper size, while yet small, hoe hands go along and chop it out, cutting away large clumps at regular intervals, leaving only two or three stalks in each hill. The"stronger of the plants readily absorbs the vitality of the others, and they are afterward thinned out More than one is left in each hill at first, in order to secure what in farmer phrase is a "good stand." Great care is then taken" to prevent every bit of grass from interfering with the growth of the cotton. The "hands" go over the fields again and again, both with plow and hos, in order to kill the grass which springs up persistently after each summer shower. It is a close contest between nature and man's persevering industry. To chop out a half-acre task of cotton is considered a good day's job, and good hoe hands are | always m demand and command good prices. This portion of the work is usually allotted to the women, and great care and experience are necessary in order not to cut the tender plants when endeavoring to hoe out the grass close to them. All the children in the colored families, sometimes in the white families, too, are early taught to use the hoe carefully. Little gfrls of S and 9 years of age hoe out many a lonf row beneath the burning southern sun. Large families are considered very desirable under these circumstances. Boys that seem in size too small to adjust the harness on their- horses or mules follow the plow for hours almost as steadily as their fathers. About the middle of June the cotton has attained two feet or more in height and the plants are thick with foliage among which appear the "forms.''' ihese are diamond-shaped, small, green and flat From these spring blossoms, like the okra blossom, only instead of the rich, velvety, ruby color in the heart of the latter the deep cup of the lily shaped flowers contains cream- colored little spirals. The first day that these blossoms ap pear they are a cream or pale straw color, the second day they have changed to a solferino red in shade: the next they have 'become a bright purple the next a still deeper pnrple. growing darker and duller in hue, until finally they shrivel up and fall off, and the three green diamond-shaped outer petals that hold the bright blossom in their clasp close their fringed ed"-es lightly over the tiny, round, hard, green boll which contains the cotton. The boll, when the blossom first drops, is about as large as a small cherry. When ready to open it is as lar^e as a walnut The outer rind or external surface of the boll is plugged like an orange—which it resembles in fo-m— and as the sun shines warmer and warmer upon it, urging it to open, one by one these ping-like parts of the small sphers turn back, exposin" to view the filmy, fibrous little" mass .in each particular cell. These little receptacles grow brown and get dryer and crisper as their treasures mature, bending away from their snowv con' tents until only their clean, smooth, yellow lining is visible, upon which rests the little tufts of cotton. The time elapsing between the day when the bloom first appears and the maturing of the boll is "generally estimated as being about six weeks. In the meantime it is liable to many evils. The worms may attack the carefully watched crop. From too much rain the rust may come upon it or the lower sections of the field may be drowned out After heavy and frequent showers the shining of the intense suns may cause decay or the drought may utterly destroy. The cotton planter does not feel safe even after his field is fall of bolls. It is not considered desirable to have too large plants, less stalk leaf and more fruit being sought for.
