1HE I>ML¥ CHRONICLED JUNE 11, 1891. WHERE FAKIRS MEET. THEY HAVE ENOUGH AN EXCHANGE QUEER IN ITS ODD WAY. !J4»t*4p41 ; fo 6o Ann Street, the Busy Part of the eUilng Afoout a Class o4l|Ken ]pljho, Posh Novelties. * • When yorfvisittha fakirs' exchange and eooM to know it you will be able to under* •tana at least one circumstance that must have struck yon as being a trifle queer. . Now, many persons, have at some time walked' from the city hall through Park tow and down Broadway as far as Wall atreet, and hare noticed that the streets - were strangely clear of peddlers. Going ovmp that same, ground a couple of hours lattv they • hare encountered a horde of howling, hoarse voiced men and boys, their cries arising far above the noise of tho Mtreeta as they fairly assaulted the passera- fto tfgnpel,£heui to buy the trinkets; they If yon have noticed this you have perhaps wondered whence all these fakirs have so suddenly sprung. The key to this mys- 1 t|tr|fciiOt.|iardto'flndandia not a great away. It is to be found at the . lliey watch every theatrical hit, every success of a public man, every great event, and in fact study the public tasto much more closely than much greater, .men do. They are in touch w'itli all tho wholesale houses in this city that deal with mechan- ical'toys aud novelties, and tho managers of these houses have t;o hesitation in saying that so tar an New York 13 concerned, and that means a good deal, these street fakirs avu rare good judges of what will go and what will not. If you could seo all i ho members of this exchange at their headquarters you would oee an interesting throng But that \a hardly possible They do not coimrebate at any specified time. Rut if any new thiip« comes out that Is likely to sell on tho bf.i'fets of New York the manufacturer has bid to let it bo 'known nt Arm su-ei't mul Thcoier a]ley. It will bo speedily tcsiu.,1, and'if it js'what it is claimed to ba by its inventor' it will in twenty-four hours bu on salo iu every Important point iu Xu\v York, and a thousand men and boys will l>u shouting ih»its praise and'"selling it. \ For this and .other reasons tho spot on Ann street is nnirjiie, and for the same reasons it may justly enough".bo called an exchange.—New York I Juit^rika^dbwn 'Ann street from Park low and halt at Theater alley, a sllort half block away.. You will see nothing there that .will jemind yon of the Produce ex- dbat»^0f thje,C6Jit|>n. exchange or the Real Estate exehainRe or' anything of that sort. You will see on one aide of Theater alley a liquor store, on the other another.. The Fakirs' exchange is right about there. • ..In tua- window»-of one of thes.e saloons is a small crystal lake, in the center of that a fHyii>)mi?.falqTid t ftftfi on that a bullfrog almost 'as large as the island. He is the tQiWlMf Afbioe of Xheexchange. When he ^ watjljiqjt ppt into that aquarium he was a '••nMnaort of bullfrog. He started in to snake things hum at onde. In the same place .were several catfish. If you have . aJfiempted to toy in a careless mamner with a catfish you probably know thai he has a very decided way of making hiuxseli felt This bullfrog ought to have Jtnowu tUs-aod perhaps he did, but a» has been said, he was brash. So he fooled with, the catfish and they fooled with him. • TH£ EXCHANGE. • I Then one day he climbed on the island j before mentioned and began to wonder \v-hy \ that catfish were allowed in u civLl- untry to carry stilettos behind their .ThaYwaa two yearsago, and the bull- teog has -spent about all his time .on that ,ialao4«yer since. This biography of him mayjaoa irrelevant, but it isn't. The. i'•members of.the exchange treat him with 1 large cpnsjlderatlon. They call him Robin'". absv Cjnuibeh and they, claim that his powers Of hard and persistent thinking entitle • : him to respect. So if you want to gee along •with them you will cast no reflection ou Crnsoq, the frog. Tft|ufixchange is unique. There will be days and days when it will be to all in. tents and purposes closed, when you, will ., a«e scarcely a member about. On those '-• days> they-are scattered all over the city in etsHfy^lacewhereTnen-and women congregate, selling with greater or less success such wares as they have to offer. Theu . you will see them drifting back to heacl- qmtrtors, and on another day when you go through. Ann street you will find handcart after handcart about Theater alley anil men lounging about looking at Crusoe and pupa.. It is an exchange day. i tp. class these men with ers who sell shoestrings, he like.- 'These are but work- ing.on what ia practically the system uf the Italian padrones, albeit in this., case it ill worked by Hebrews. These peddlers in ; A*n'e£i$et;'are usually either individual merchants, BO to speak, or members of a natkin, and in a general way. with so unanimity of form that their heady *P*Uy be termed an exchange, ' Juuii>in;v at Conclusions.

Lea, a justice of the peace at Pliebe, Perkins county, and his wife Harriet H". Lea, were arraigned in the federal'court charged with making false affidavits to secure a pension certificate and also with perjury. Mrs. Lea was formerly the wife of Joel L. Gethold, aprivntc in the Twentieth JRegiincnt of Illinois Volunteers. Subsequent to his death she married Lea, and in January, 1888, representing that her first husband was still alive, she applied in his name for a pension, and accompanying tho application were two af- lidavits purporting to be signed by George Cunningham, sheriff of Hennepin county, 111., and by Wesley Bentloy, of the same county, who were comrades of Gethold ia tho Twentieth Illinois, regiment. It transpires that the whole scheme was concocted by Lea and his wife. The pension oilieiain discovered the fraud before any hicncy was J obtained. Both defendants pleaded not | guilty. . ._ .,....:._•,.._•___ HOWLETT MUST GO BACK. > Capital within certain limits, ajtdcri4i4 top.
