Aim PAILT TKUSBUHL BT W. T. NORTON, Oor, Third and Plan* Str««M, Alton! at. MONUAY EVE., MAX 9. Tobacco and Bees*. ST . Louis, May 8.—Collector Bar nutn'a internal revenue report for •April, 1887, shows that $223,848.26 was paid during the month for to: -bftoco taxes and $103,892 30 for beer. Tho Increase in the tobacco revenue over the corresponding month of last year amounts to $48,945.90. The heaviest tax was paid by Liggett & Meyers, a firm which turned out 4,132,916 pounds of. plug tobacco during the first three months of this year. The Tobacco Leaf, published iu New York city, in a late is8ue,ac- knowledged that Liggett & Meyers have taken the lead in the manufacture of tobacco, and that P. Lorillard, of Jersey City,waa now second on the list, only having produced 3,601,983 pounds during the same period. The P. J. Lorg company, of Middletown, 0,, then follows, with. 2,978,000 pounds and the Drummond Tobacco company ranks fourth on the list with 2,219,116 pounds. The rapid as- cendency of Liggett & Myers to the first place is so much more striking for the reason that they confine themselves to the manufacture of plug tobacco whereas Lorillard produces all kinds of tobacco. '"Well, I finally consented, .and yon should have scon his cy«s glictnn ds I handed him the following: " 'To whom it mnv concern: The bearer, John Smith, Is fully competent to perform any duties for which lie is qualified.' "A day or two later he cams back looking rather crestfallen. " '1 tuk dat paper to Lawyer Blank,' said he, 'and he Ink at it so, and dun ho lukat it so, and clou lie scratch liu head'—and the darkey imitated a man perplexed in the extreme—"den,Mlstah Stetson, ho tolo me to Immg dat rk- comend bnck to you and arsk you to be so kind as to write just heah what my kalificashtins is.' " 'And you want me to do that?' 1 asked. " 'If you'll bo so kind, Mr. Stolson.' '•Well, I took tho loltur, and found that the lawyer had written at tho bottom: " 'What arc the qualifications referred to above?' " I wrote underneath: " 'I hove been trying to find ogt for eighteen months, and except it capacity for sleep, haven't discovered any. Suppose you try now.' "I was never troubled with that darksy again."— New York Tribune. A Story ol'Van Dyck. Charles Simmer's Kludncss. "Do I remember Andrew J. Rob- ertsP" quoth au old State politician. "Yes. Ho had a checkered career, poor man. But with all his shortcomings he was a bright, indeed a brilliant man. "Hewas agrsht politician years ago, and not only took extraordinary interest in the great questions of the day, but knew intimately all tho prominent public men. He was well read, intelligent, and a good talker, but he had a failing. Ho could not be depended upon, and at times was helpless. "He used to hang around the State Republican headquarters from morning until night throughout the cam- Salgn, and campaigns lasted in those ays nearly five months. "It was during the anti-slavery days when everybody was at tho highest pitch of excitement. I remember ono oay in particular, when a number of prominent politicians wore assembled at headquarters, among them Charles Snmner and Henry Wilson. "Sumner was in the rear room, Wilson fn front. In walked Roberts. He talked in a loud voice and disturbed the whole assembly. "Stepping into the rear room, he spied Sumner in earnest conversation with a friend. Giving him a tremen- doua slap on the shoulder, be shouted: _" 'D—— you, Sumner; how are you? Why >don t you be as hearty and as genial as your friend Wilson ? r "The effect of this rough handling on Bumner can readily bo imagined by those who remember or have read of the dignified and scholarly man. It was not ouly a shock, but an Insult. Bumner turned as white as a sheet, but said nothing. He realized Roberts' condition and wisely held bis peace. Roberts was severely reprimanded and turned out of the room. "It was not long after this that Roberts came to want and grief. He was actually destitute. He looked hungry and was poorly clad. Iu despair ho came to mo ono day for work or advice. The big tears rolled down his cheek as he told mo how destitute and degraded ho was, ami how ho lono-ed to reform. I told him I had no work, »na advised him to go to Sunnier. " 'Go toSumnorrho said. 'Oh, no. I Insulted Sumner, a short time aso. I can't go.' , 6 "'Yes you can,'I said. 'Go to him just as you have come to mo. Tell him frankly tho whole story, and he will help you.' "Roberts did as I advised. A"bou 10 o clock, the next morning he but tone* his shabby coat around his nccl to hide his flannel shirt, and made his Way to the man ho had so grossly in Bulled but a short time before. "Suinnor, It is well k..u\vn, was a late riser, and seldom breakfasted before 11 o'clock. He' received the unfortunate man kindly, and, inviting him to breakfast, listened patiently tc his story. Roberta told mo afterward that it was the first square meal that no had oaten in a long time. "In less than two days Roberts was given a position in tho navy yard, and nenoeforth was a different man. When h« told me later his. experience with Bumner that morning, his oyos filled with tears and his voloo trembled with emotion. It was a magnanimous act oa tha part of Sumnor, and an out- H»rd expression of his true character. "It was tho turning point in Roberts career. Only a few months ago he delivered ono of tho best temperance spoeohe's I over hoard in my life Up to tho day of'his death, which occurred quite recently, he had a great veneration for the memory of Bum- ner, the man who was so kind and generous to Mm in trouble."—. accord* • Van Dyck'a first visit to England, under the protection of the "evangelist, of tho art-world," Lord Anin- del, was not very productive, nor, we may be Biire, very satisfactory to tho young and ambitious painter, who was emulative of the magnificence of Rubens. The reign of Cornelius Van Jansen was approaching tho end, but the times were not yet ripe. In the spring of 1621 A r an Dyek was again in Antwerp, and in tho autumti ho started for Italy, stimulated to this memorable enterprise by the generous counsel of Rubens. It was this jovous sotting out from Antwerp that led to the nistorio adventures at Savonthom—as charming and idyllic as tho sentimental voyager could desire. The story suggests a pretty picture; the gay ami chivalrous painter on his high 'horse, tho gift of Rubens, with a}l the world before him like an open paradise, riding into Se- venthem, and falling a victim to the beauty of Anna Vim Ophoin. The episode is like a page from the "Wan. derjnhro" of Wllhelm Meisler. It is a pity to spoil so delightful n •story, but) as M. GnifiVey observes, with the philosophy of a critic, it Is better to know tho truth thivu lo cling to error, however sweet and alluring. Van Dyck did not, for his love's sake, present two pictures lo the village church, but received a good round sum for the "Holy Family'" and a '-St. Martin," on which l.ixl we hnd a reminiscence ut (lu>, Unisvynor in Mr. HoIfordV "St. .Martin Dividing His Cloak." 15y November 20 he was in Genoa, and visited Venice, Rome, Palermo, living ut Home with Cardinal Uetitivoglio, whose portrait lie painted —the picture now at tlio Pitt I palace, and one of I lie glories of Florence.— Magazine of Arl.
