To offset this, he fays, the firm holds pledged bills to the amount of J1.7.0. The firm of J. P. Brewster & Co. is one of the oldest in this city, and has always enjoyed the highest reputation. It was installed over a hundred yarn ago by the father of the- present head of the firm, who took his sons, James U. and Henry. In partnership. A disagreement between the brothers was followed by a dissolution of the Interests. The two firms became fierce rivals, the establishments being distinguished by the addresses. J. II. Brewster & Co.'s mark read, "of Twenty-fifth street," and the other firm, "of Broom street." J. B. Brewster & Co. were known tor their conservative business methods. This was In a measure the cause of the failure, although it is said they have not one. dollar of bad debts on the books. James B. Brewster Is over eighty years old, and has taken little or no active interest In the office 3 or", the firm for some time past. Assignee Carver could not say whether or not the firm would be continued. Another Lumberman In Trouble. BAY CITY. Mich., Oct. 12.

Uppincott's Magazine. . The laudable efforts now being made In some parts of the United States to improve our poor hignways hav turned attention to the general excellence of tho?e of Europe. At such times it is occasionally remarked, "But we cannot hope for many decades to attain this same state of perfec-v tion. for these old worli roads were begun fenerations ago." This is . a mistake, in ome continental countries men scarcely In the.decline of life can recall the time whea they were surrounded with roads no better than those that abound in all part3 of our Tnlon. It may encourage the American laborers in this good cause to know this fact. An Odd Fellow Killed. -PHILADELPHIA. Oct. 12.

Action of the Priesthood a SnrprUe to Doth Pnrtlew Possibility that It May Imperil Statehood. . SALT LAKE, I J. T., Oct. 11-Politlcal circles are agitated, to-day over a report that at a s.ecret meeting of the priesthood of the Mormon Church, a few days ago, Hon. Moses Thatcher and E. H. Roberts were disciplined for participating in politics without permission of the church authorities. Thatcher Is a candidate for the Senate and Roberts Is, a candidate for Representative. Democratic politicians construe this as a notice from the church that the Republicans should be elected. Just why these two gentlemen were selected for discipline, while there are other church officials on both tickets Is something which Democratic politicians claim they do not understand. They cite the fact that Joseph F.. Smith, one of the counselors to the first presidency, openly advocated and urged the election of the Republican ticket last year, and that apostle John Henry Smith was a member and president of the constitutional convention, to which no exception was made by the church officials. rihe Democratic party has been waging a vigorous campaign, with the claim that their chances for success were about even, but now it admits that their chances as against church influence would be next to hopeless. The Republicans claim that in, the last campaign the Republican olficials who took an active part in politics had the permission of the church to do so. whereas in the present case such permission was neither sought nor granted. Judge Pdwers, chairman of the Demo- : says: "If we find that our efforts are to be thwarted, our money wasted, our victory surreptitiously taken from us, I shall advise the State committee to give me authority to call a convention of the Democrats of Utah, giving that power to consider the propriety of taking the Democratic ticket out of the field and disbanding the Democrtalc party, and advising the voters of Utah to vote down the Constitution and to vote in favor of a Territorial form of gvernment until we are certain that all our people, from the highest to lowest, will be free to act politically as their Judgments and their, consciences dictate. Every man in Utah must have the very fullest freedom of political action, and no ecclesiastical party can be allowed in any degree to meddle with our political afTairs." George M. Cannon, chairman of the Republican State central committee, was seen. He said,- so far a church influence 'was concerned, he had . heard notmng of It. He said indications pointed strongly to a Republican victory and he believed the rumor was a subterfuge of the Democrats, who feel that they are lost, and want an excuse for falling. The Argus, a Republican paper, in today's issue, says: "Much as the Argus desires a Republican victory we, nevertheless, say here openly that we prefer defeat bv all means rather than a victory we might obtain that should be stained with the suspicion of Mormon Church control or dictation." The Herald, the "leading: Democratic paper, says: "It is better, now that this isue has been raised, that it be settled before Utah becomes a State than to meet it when statehood becomes a reality." Chairman Powers taid this evening that a meeting of the teritorial committee had been called for Monday next to discuss political matters, and it might result in call-In? another Democratic convention for the purpose of Issuing a declaration of independence to the people of Utah. Most of the leading Mormons were out of the city to-dav and their views could not be ob-'talned. Called on to Resign. (NEW YORK, Oct. 12. The executive committee of the State Democracy to-day passed resolutions denouncing the action of its organization in the Twelfth senatorial district indorsing tho nomination of ex-Inspector Williams for the- Senate by the Republicans. Williams is', called upon to resign from the ticket. He figured conspicuously before the Lexow committee, where he was accused of sanctioning police blackmail, and afterwards resigned from the force.

Landrum. of Lancaster, Ky., veteran of the Mexican and civil wars, a personal friend of General Grant, and a man of high character and attainments, died late last night in his sixty-eighth year.

New York Mail and Express. A little man with bristling beard and long hair, who was clad in a gray 8uit that Americans might consider rather loud, stood on the White Star line pier at 10:3(. Few who have read "The Manxman' would Imagine that the little man with tho football hair was the author of that novel. Still it was Hall Calne, the popular Kn-gllsh writer, who had then just . reached the pier on the steamer Teutonic, which brought him from Liverpool. First impressions are sometimes deceiving even in an author and one has to rhat to the little man with the long hair before he begins to realize how clever he really is. He owns a pair of eyes that are the ftamp of keenness, and he has a mouth that is ever illustrative of its owner's determination. The author Is about forty-five yeari old and not much more than five feet three Inches in height. With him came Mrs. Calne and their little son, who is about seven years old. William H. Appleton, the publisher, was at the steamship pier to welcome the English penman. When he left' the other siJe it was officially announced that he was coming here as a' delegate from the British Authors' Association. Asked by a Mail and Express reporter as to what he intended to do here. Mr. Calne said: "I have a number of objects in view, but can give no Information concerning several of them, because they are of private and personal nature. My chief object, however, is to interest myself in the copyright laws. This Is to be a convention of publishers and authors at Ottawa, Canada, and I shall ho there as a representative of Englan'd. I have planned to remain ten weeks on this side of tho Atlantic. I intend to remain three days in this city, when I shall leave for Montreal. From Montreal I will go to Ottawa, and then to Toronto. Before I return home I shall spend several days as the guest of Mr. Appleton at Lake Placid in the Adirondacks. "Lecture? Well. I may. but It is not definitely settled yet I do not yet know what arrangements Mr. Appleton has made for me. It may b that I shall not appear In public at all. Yes, I am at work on a new book, but it will not be ready until the fall, if then. In the meantime. I am looking out for material for another book, and may find it here." FOR CHURCH UNITY nEPORT ADOPTED BY THE XATIOX. AL COXGREGATIOXAL COUXCIL. A Florida Law to Be Fob tfbt Resolutions on, Armenian Atrocities Episcopalian Mission. SYRACUSE. N. Y.. Oct. 12 Church unity, Armenian atrocities, protection of missionaries and the temperance movement were among the subjects considered to-day by the National Council of the Congregational Churches of the United States In their fourth day's session. In addition to these subjects reports from the theological seminaries, finances and education for the ministry were considered. The Rev. D. P. Reed, of Wyandotte, Mich., said that he believed that the' sentiments of the council should be voiced on the protection of the foreign missionaries by the government. A committee was appointed to draw up resolutions. The nominating committee then reported on the committee on Armenian atrocities, as the Rev. H. M. Ladd, of Cleveland, O., John T. Dale, of Winnotka, 111., and the Rev. E. A. Dunning, of Boston. The finance committee, i-through E. W. Blatchford, of Chicago' made a statement reviewing the financial condition of the church. Debts had been incurred because of the neglect of State treasurers and because of the hard times. The committee recommended that the council treasurer should present the council's condition to the State treasurers and ask for financial assistance and prompt remittances. The Rev. Dr. Arthur Little, of Boston, presented a resolution- eulogizing R. L. Whitman, the founder of Whitman College, Washington. This started a discussion, it being claimed that it was an attempt to railroad through a resolution indorsing, the college. The resolution was finally passed. Rev. Robert R. Meredith, of Brooklyn, presented the resolution which was unanimously adopted by a rising vote, condemning the law of Florida which makes it a crim inal offense for missionary teachers to in struct In schools, white and colored pupils, without caste distinctions, and for any person to patronize such' schools. The resolution pledges the council ' to "unwaveringly and courageously resist this wicked enactment by all lawful ways, and to exhaust all legal measures to defend these guaranteed rights and privileges, and carry, if necessary. thi3 case to the Supreme Court of the United States for adjudication." The resolution on the Armenian atrocities, as adopted, declare that '"in our Judgment the time has come when the government of the United States should take such measures in co-operation with the other great powers aswvill not only effectually protect all American subjects, missionaries and others in Turkish domains, but in the name of our common ' humanity will present a determined protest against these barbarities, and that our government should give moral support to the movement ot i.urov;ui powers to cause these outrages to cease to the extent, if necessary, of the abolition of the Turkish government." The new joint committee, taking the place of the New Jersey memorial ana Christian unity committees this -afternoon submitted their reports, the main features of which as adopted are: "The committee on union with other denominations shall be understood to act upon the following basis: "First In accordance with the constitution and organic declaration of this National Council, adopted at Oberlin in 1871, declaring the Holy Scriptures the sufficient and only infallible rule of religious faith and practice, we recognize rlo creed of human origin to have authority over our faith, which authority belongs only to the word of God. "Second In any union contemplated those who join together have, accordingly, the right to maintain their conscientious varieties of faith and order. "Third We approve, as a proposed basis of such union, the, platform of union suggested by the Nevr Jersey association. Fourth We proposo' to other Protestant Evangelical churches a union based on, first, the acceptance of the Scripture- -if the Old and New Testaments inspired by the Holy Spirit, aj containing all things necessary to salvation, and as being the will and ultimate standard of Christian faith; second, dlscipleshlp of Jesus Christ, the Divine Lord and Savior and the Teacher of the world; third, the Church of Christ, which Is His body, whose great mlfsion it is to preach His gospel to th? world; fourth, liberty of conscience in the Interpretation cf the Scriptures and in the ad ministration of the church. "Such r.n alliance of the churches should have regular meetings of their representatives and should have for its subject among others first, mutual acquaintance t-.nd fellowship; second, co-operation In foreign and domestic missions; third, the prevention of rivalries between cor-pcting churches in the same field; fourth, ihe ultimate visible union of the whole body of Cnrlst." - For the committee on secret and social societies the Rev. Qharles E. Blanchard reported the following resolution: "That It la inconsistent for any Christian to become a member of any organization Into which he cannot consistently take h!s Savior; that in view of the multiplicity of these organizations and. their intlucnce on the churches there be appointed a committee to report at the next meeting of the council on the further duty o! tne jnurches respecting them." j Episcopalians Go to Faribault. MINNEAPOLIS. Oct. 12. It was a holl-.fiay for the delegates to the Episcopalian 'convention to-day. Many visited the city of Faribault, Mlnn., where Bishop Whipple lives, and where are, located the Chattuck Military School, 'the Seabury Divlnlty School and St. Mary's Hall, a school for girls, all of which are under Bishop Whipple's direct care. The train being cut into two sections J. Pierpont Morgan's private car was attached and he entertained a party of guests on the trip. Altogether some five hundred excursionists went to Faribault. They returned at 4:30. Tonight another se5sion of the Board of Missions was held. The meeting was a qulec afTalr and comparatively little busne?s was transacted. The board listened to the appeals of Bishop Graves, of China, and Rev. Dr. McKlm. of Japan, for more mis.on-aries in those fields, and adopted a resolution declaring that more missionaries were needed not only in China and Japan, but In the entire foreign missionary held, and It was suggested that there should be a special effort made to arouse missionary enthusiasm among the students at the theological seminaries. Bi?hop Scarborough introduced a resolution. 1j0 the effect that the Woman's Auxiliary be asked . as to how they wished their latest offering of S-w.O'X) expended. There was a debate pro and con over this resolution and it was defeated because it was claimed that the women would be so scattered, t that any general opinion could not be -secured from them. Lutheran tienernl Oonnell. EASTON. Pa., Oct. 12.-The Lutheran General Council held but a half day's ses- sion to-day, the members of the convention visiting U-afayette College this afternoon. The order of the day was the subject of the publication of an English Church paper, the matter . was referred to a sneclal committee. The re-organlzatlon of home missions, .was the next order ot business. Rev. Dr.' Repass, of vAllentown. presented plans suggesting , that the English and German home missions work of the several svnods be transferred to the General Council; that superintendents be appointed bv each boarl to have supervision of the entire field; that the a.ivisory home mission committee be appointed by each synod, one for each language; that the gross amount to be expended by each board be determined at the conventions of the General Council. A resolution was alopted that the entire work of the home mission of the synoi and conference be concentrated in a general council. This was referred to the synods for action. Whisky and Ynjcnhondtisc. Josiah Flynt. in the Century. There is one other caue of vagrancy more potent than all I have described, and its name is whisky. The love of liquor brings more men and women into tramp-dom than anything else, and until this fact is more : conscientiously recognized there can be no thorough treatment of the tramp. There is no need to enter into details on this subject: all that I can do is to report the facL The public npeds to realize more fully than it now does the awful feCts of strong drink on vagabonds. A realization of this fact, is llkelv to be productive of pome remedy for' the evils it rpresnt. If th 'tramps of America could be freed from the bondage into v.'hlch whisky has brought them, there, would . not be very many yagrants in the country. That' the American tramp Is the result of the fluctuations of the labor market, as some claim, I do not believe. The American tramp does not want work, as, a rule; but I know that he does want to be free from liquor. And if this can be accomplished. 1 feel safe in saying that he will go to work. Under the Influence of drink he becomes a sort of voluntary idler; but If he were temperate, he could be made a valuable citizen. THE HINDOO ASCETIC. Astonishing .Povrer of Holding; the Body In One Position. Edwin Lord Weeks, In Harper. Fakirs almost invariably pose well, and are singularly docile and accommodating as models, the inexhaustible stock of patience required In their vocation making it easy for them to keep the same position. Every one knows the oft-told tale of the arm upraised until it stiffened in that position like the dead limb of a tree and the nails grew into the palm of his hand; and the other, who placed a pinch of earth on the end, o? his outstretched tongue, p'anted a seed therein and sat until the srtd sprouted and the leaves appeared. In spite of the fact that their vows forbid them to touch the coin of the realm, th?y are not averse to receiving it in the gourds or little buckets which they usually carry. One who belonged to a sect distinguished above all others for saintliness was draped and turbaned with yellow, and carried a slender wand which he never laid down. Having consented to pose, he took up a position in the sunlight, and was carefully instructed not to move. While he sat his lips moved incessantly, and he never ceased to repeat prayers or charms; but one of his hands having got out of position at the critical moment, I rose to replace it. At my approach he shrank backward with an expression of horror, but, fortunately before I had touched him, it was explained to me that the contact of an unsanctified hand would put ages of penance between hint and the happy goal which was now sd near. An ascetic with whom we had the honor of a personal Interview had Invented -an original method of attaining that elevation of spirit, through maceration of the flesh, which all must'eompass before they may hope for endless rest. We saw him on the road from Ajmeer to the sacred lake of Poscha, dwelling alone In the wilderness. The fine road by which we descended a steep declivity among the hills made an abrupt turn at the bottom of the slope, and the driver had to rein in his horses, which were rearing and plunging at the sudden apparition of a small white tent and a silent figure squatting at- the entrance. With three broad white stripes chalked across his forehead and hair toned to the deep and streaky bronze hue so prevalent at . the Concours Hip-pique, he was like a Japanese monster carved from a knot of wood. Just inside the tent stood an elaborate iron bedstead, and there was neither mattress nor sheet to conseal the frame work of the structure, with traverse bars thickly planted with long Iron spikes, on which, for eight houra of the twenty-four, the fakir was accuitomed to stretch his emaciated body. At that moment he was fairing a rest, and his eyes, the only signs of life In his wooden countenance, were fixed on us. The bedstead had been constructed in Ajmeer at the expense of one of his disciples, a wealthy Hindoo . merchant. This valley was the play 'ground of divers striped and spotted brutes of the cat family to such an extent that iron-barred refuges for goats and goat herds had been built at Intervals along the road, and we have often since thought, with a certain uneasiness, of the lonely fakir, whose only defense was his sanctity, and wondered whether he hnd been rewarded with the martyr's crown. When the hot wind of April was at its height in Benares a few weeks later and the mercury dally stood at 100 or 110 degrees Fahrenheit, with an upward ten-aencjv while it marked 150 degrees in the sun (according to the Pioneer), we could not but admire the fortitude of another devotee whom we dally saw at the boat landing on the Ganges. His Idea of self-abasement was imaginative and Dantepque. From a sort of gallows on the bank of the river, in a spot at once exposed to the full power of the sun, the reflected heat from the calcined bank and the burning wind whwh swept the dust and parched leaves into whirling eddies, he hung suspended by his heels, with, his face covered by a figured prayer cloth. With each oscillation of the dangling figure, as it slowly swayed to and fro, its head passed within a foot of a hot fire made of the pungent flapjacks with which the Hindoo cooks his rice. Another, whose aspect denoted the highest degree of self-immolation, galloped down the road, mounted on a frightened cow, past the Verandas of Clark's Hotel. A ehrod of yellow cloth concealed ut little of his dusty anatomy, wasted by vigils and long fasting, and he waved a tattered umbrella as be tore past, yelling at the top of his -voice. For the daring simplicity and originality of his "make-up" he deserved the academic palms of his order. ' FOR THE PIPE F1EXD. Rare Collection from Africa io Be Seen in England. Detroit Free Press. A rare Election of tobacco pipes was exhibited by Mr. Robert Elliott, of London, at the International Tobacco Trade's Exhibition in London in June. The collection comprises over five hundred specimens from all parts of the world. The London Tobacco Trade Review of Aug. 1 thus speaks of the most interesting of the African types: v The first African pipe that came under notice was a beautiful piece of work; the stem, three feet in length, is braded with raw hide and ornamented with. leaves and flowers in gold and silver, : while the bowl is ivory mounted. An Ashantee pipe has a stem fortythree Inches in length, of carved wood, bound round for tworthirds of. its length with native beaded work. Another Ashantee pipe with pottery bowl has a stem of forty-three inches, bound round with snakeskin; and. these may be regarded as magnificent types of native, art. A unique specimen Is a pipe from Zanzibar. The bowl is of carved pottery, and the stem (sixty inches) is plated round with white and black horsehair; the mouthpiece is studded with silver, hammered in. and an immense amount of labor- must have been expended in making this pipe. An African pipe with a large stone bowl was next seen, the Ptem being fifty-five inches long and partly bound in raw hide. There were two magnificent Ashantee pipes with stems (thirty-seven inches) beautifully beaded their entire length. From the north coast of Africa Mr. Elliott has obtained a pipe, the bowl of which is of bok horn and carved gourd; this isa remarkable specimen, and is typical of the tastes of the natives in that part of Africa. Fearfully and wonderfully made also is an African pipe, the bowl of which Is of carved stone weighing about seven pounds, while the fortj'-six-inch stem is bound with rawhide. One of tne most remarkable specimens is an Ashantee pipe, the bowl being of wood, carved in the form of a woman's head; the eyes, tongue and ears are represented by corals, the back of the head is encircled by two rows of beads, in addition to which a pin of coral ornaments the hair; tho stem (thirty-nine inches) is covered with plaited horse hair. A pipe from the west coast of Africa has a stem fifty-seven Inches in length, being of beautifully carved wood formed In sections. From the same district came a pipe, the bowl of which Is made from the base of a deer's antler, the stem being bound In raw hide. There are also some fine - pipes with potterv bowls col lected on the west coast of Africa; and one African pipe consisted of a stone bowl with a stem three feet in length, decorated with handsome feathers. The collection of African pipes is unique, and; must amply repay Mr. Elliott for the pains he has taken In acquiring it. Ono Ashantee pipe has a bowl of carved horn, then bound with bead work and ivory, while another has a carved buffalo horn stem decorated with silver work and beading, in a manner which serves to demonstrate the nenchant of the natives of that couatry for articles of an elaborate character, in the' making of which a large amount of patience and perseverance has been necessary. 3IOKIS MI LTICAI LIS 111 BBLE. A Iloom In the Culture of the Silk Worm Which Ended Disastrously. Philadelphia Times. In ISO Philadelphia was only a big vil lage, and everybody knew everybody else's business, and on Sept. 20 our people were enjoying ail the excitement of a boom, as the gTeat sale of "morus multicaulis" trees was to come off on this day. Although it is only fifty-six years since, there are very few people now living who have any definite recollection of the popular, craze and its evil results. It was the oil speculation of those days. In 13 a society was formed here to promote the raising of silk worms and the manufacture of and very handsome premiums were offered for the finest lot of cocoons and specimens of raw silk. But public Interest languished until In J8J8. wpen a seductive stranger appeared in this city, and by representations of the profits to be made from silk raising started a veritable boom, which quickly extended to all the large cities, but here the fever was very virulent. It was easy to get the worms from abroad, but the feeding of them was a serious matter. Each full grown worm ate twenty ounces of mulberry leaves per diem. So nearly every one that owned or could hire a piece of ground planted It with "morus muU'Caulis" seed.

One rilfhA irrmtn.-l ' Kadi.' rwwfll.Alv Jlfl other would seemingly defy cultivation. In the meantime every girl of any enterprise had her collection of cocoons, reels, damping apparatus and brushes for starting the Pllk to wind, and this fad dominated society. Young gentlemen had no show alongside of the caterpillars, and one in revenge for the slight fat down on and smashed a choice collection of Italian bar-striped worms and was sued for the value, brides losing the heart cf his Jemima forever. The fint sale of trees was on the Dock-street sidewalk of the exchange. Year old treeg commenced at 30 cents apiece and then ran up to $2. Now, an acre of ground would grow about 4.500 trees, so the growers had reason for getting excited. James Sj'bert. who at seventy-five is still cobbling on Pegg street, lived with his father in 1839 in a little board shanty on the southeast corner of Tenth and Fitzwater streets. The lot was fifty feet -wide, running west to Eleventh street. Old Sybert was wide awake, and planted this goound with morus mulMcflulls. and they grew abundantly. He had numerous offers, but held on till October, and then sold out for $7,000. He had been offered the ground for $150. His next crop in 1840 was valued at $2 for the crop and the lot was ruined for all planting purposes. Nothing but dynamite will eradicate the roots, and they, will close a well one hundred yards away. The great sale was held at Germantown on the 20th of September. 1839. Tree pIx feet hlsh started at $3 and rose to $7. Philip Phvslck gave the final stroke to his fortune by "buying $20,000 worth, and the proceeds )f the sale came to $90,XX). In Baltimore the craze was as bad, and some prominent people ruined themselves. Ihe Carrolls. of Carrollton, were credited dth the loss of much of their possessions fn this speculation. . , And now there began to be doubts, arid much figuring was done, and it became apparent that the native silk would cost about $1 more per pound than the Imported and not as good, and so the bubble burst. Nlne-t-Mlve per cent, of the speculators lost more or less. Some won. A prominent rich fumllj here whose daughters have married Into the nobility of Kurope. made their start for affluence- in the money made by ther old Dutch grandmother on the little half-acre garden on Christian above Wshth street, right opposite Flower, now Fallon street, while James Horn and Philip Phy-slck lost $100,000 apiece.

"No, sir," said the clerk at the stamp window, "the life we lead is not what people nowadays term a soft thing.

"I'll tell you what worries me. A thousand and one things! A "thousand and one persons of every age, character and description, dinning questions Into my ears every minute In the day. And they expect me to answer with lmper-turbed amiability. "Why. only last 'Friday." he continued, "a sour-faced old lady came In to interview me. It was about 8 o'clock in the evening, a time when I ordinarily 'have a little immunity from torture, but when I paw her approach I scented trouble. Young man,' she said, '1 dropped a letter in that place an hour ago.' 'Indeed, 1 replied, politely, 'that is the proper place for it. 'I Know, but I want it again.' she retorted, 'it wasn't properly directed.' 'I am very orry. madam. " I expostulated, but it Is against the rules for me to return a letter to any one. If your letter is de-llclent In address write a line to the postmaster of the place to which It is going, and he will see that it is properly delivered. Beside, there are a thousand cr two letters in the box. and I could not find yours, even if It were right I should do so.' Those rules yoi speak about are' all nonsense. I must nave that letter to John now, so's I can fix the. address.' I was beginning to get a little warm about the collar, but I held out bravely. 'It is forbidden to return a letter, for whatever purpose, and I cannot do it,' this as graciously as I could, 'and, as I said before. I have, no t'rr.e to run through a thousand or more letters.' 'What!' she cried." shaking her parasol In the window, uncomfortably near my face, 'don t you s'pose I know what you're paid for. You're paid to do as the public demands. And I tell you I must have that letter. It's to John Wesley Dyer, Philadelphia, and I shan't leave till you hand It out. If I have to stay till morning. Do you hear?' I tried another argument. I consented to search the receptacle for the letter and hand It to the postmaster, whom she could consult in the morning. Put that would not do. She must have the letter she had put in there, and would not stir a step until she had gotten it and fixed tbe address. "Making the best of a bad matter, I went about the task of finding the precious missive with as good grace as I could command, but. though I worked as rap'dlv as I could, frequent Interruptions retarded my efforts, and half an hour had elapsed before I nnally unearthed It.- I asked the woman if It was the letter In question, and she said it was, fairly snatching It from my hand: And what do you ruppose was the alteration she deemed so Imperative?

I wonder, and I know I never shall get to th bottom of this mystery, at the familiarity man shows with the ward he lives in, or I might say with "wards" in general.

And again I wonder at the bold, unwavering manner a man .picks out th shady Bide of a railroad car. Unless I follow in the wake of one of these trousered superior beings I vibrate from one side of the aisle to th other with a haunting fear that I may find myself well on my journey with a glare of sunlight streaming through my car window. I used to think (now this Is a direct give away of my stupidity, and I only air It for the sympathy of my sisters who have been there their selves) that the science of the whole thing lay In selecting the sunny side of the car before the train started, when It would by some unaccountable process develop Into the shady s!d. Several times when I had followed masculine lead I found this to l the case, and I finally concluded to adopt it as a principle: but lately I have put It into practice, and it has failed utterly to work. I have traveled many uncomfortable miles wilh never a sunny shift about. So I have concluded to go back to my old habits and dog the footsteps of some masculine traveling companion until he fettles -himself on one side of the car. Thrn I shail follow suit, and I am sure I shall not be alone in my methods. Eveklni shows almost one mind in this dilemma. Frequently I have seen whole flocks of pettlcoated travelers start up from their seats like birds in a marsh, and with perfect confidence flutter after one specimen of the stronger sex who hnd moved across tho aisle for a change cf seat- .
