IN THE OLD MAY DAYS. Some Seasonable and Sentimental Recollections. Howard Fielding Described the Downeast Custom of HmiKiiir; Muy Baskets nn<I Tells a Story or Two — l,ovo Ruled the r>uv- ICOPVRICHT. 1S91.] As a Downeaster. I am always grieved at this season of the year by . the spectacle of preparations for tiic celebration of.the first of May. Where I was brought up the day was reserved for something better than the moving 1 from one undesirable place of residence to another. In fact very little moving 1 was done down there, except from the sleepy town by the sandy shore to. that other quiet settlement on the beautiful wooded hill, ever increasing- at the expense of its neighbor as the number of the white gravestones showed. Perhaps the unvarying 1 practice of {jiving the most desirable location to the dead may account for the waning- prosperity of the living- in that region. But I was speaking: of May day. Recently I have had the curiosity to ask a dozen or more of my acquaintances •whether they knew what a downcast May day was like, and I haven't found one who did. My section of the country is but sliraly represented in New York. The staid New England conscience unfits us for success amid the g-ay and original dishonesty of the metropolis; we prefer to go to the west where the questionable practices of the people are more like the sins to which we are accustomed. New Yorkers are nearly all foreigners, and such as I interrogated replied with some nonsense about May poles and dancing on the green. Not one had ever tasted the delights of hanging May baskets or knew anything about the proper celebration of the day. It was love that ruled the day, and the May basket was its symbol. In the preparation of this token we employed secret wiles much darker than those with which we surrounded the Christmas presents. The point of it was to hang- a pretty basket on the door knob of the house which held the sweetest little girl in the world, and then get away again without being caught, ohe was to have no clew to the giver unless her heart told her who it was. She was expected to hang a May basket, too, but if she were caught at it she might be kissed. I remember lying in wait for a whole hour on the porch on a warm May aotrt" ic'now what they might have done to me if 1 hadn't shinned up the lightning rod on the side of the church just La time, 1 was in hojvjs that he would try to shin up after me and oreak his neck in the operation, but he contented himself with leaving the dog on guard while he went for a ladder. Taking advantage of his absence, I climbed to the belfry; descended to the body of the church, and dropped out of a window on the opposite side from the dog. I heard afterwards that in revenge the old man had fed the sugar hearts to his dog. Looking back now upon those old-time confections, I wonder that they didn't kill him. I remained constant during that year, and when the time came round I prepared another May basket more beautiful than its predecessor. In this labor I received valuable advice and assistance from Harry Raymond, who was three years ray senior. 1 thought it very kind of him, because I had suspected that he, too, was in love with Alice, and I had wondered if 1 should ever be big enough to "lick" him for it. But he so assured me of his deep and everlasting sympathy that I grew to like him very much, and I even offered to make a A DANGEROUS SOMNAMBULIST. NOT THE KISS HE WASTED. night expecting every moment to hear the sound of stealthy feet on the steps. It seemed a long time, and I began'to. have • a green-eyed, horrible suspicion that she would hang the basket for Boine other fellow. She might be doing it even then; he might be catching her, and kissing her. Would I ever forgive her? No sir. Would I pound that other fellow if I found out who he was? You betl Even if he should be big'Ed Smith I'd fix him so that he couldn't come to school for a week. My jealousy buzzed so loudly that the doorbell rang with a clamor, and scampering feet resounded on the walk "before I became aware that she had come. I was after - her in an instant, but the breath had been so startled out of my body that I felt as if she must escape, flow she did run! Up the main street for a little way, and then along a shadowy cross road,- her figure flitted before me in the dusk, like a phantom. Pride came in aid of' love; I wouldn't be beaten by a girl. I was gaining; she was but a few yards ahead. In the darkest part of that long lane I caught her; struggled for a kiss; got it, and we both stood panting till the moon looked out from behind a cloud, and showed me the queer, round face of &, little colored girl, servant at the house of my lady love, and doubtless intrusted with the basket for no other reason than to play me this ridiculous trick. I should have been rude if prudence bad not supplemented chivalry. As it was, I promised her unlimited candy if she would not tell; but she did. By next May day, I transferred my affections from the fair one who had duped me so cruelly to a girl of a more serious mind. She was fifteen years old and I was thirteen and I used to weep bitter tears, because, in my ignorance of matrimonial affairs, I supposed that the two years between us constituted an insuperable barrier to our union,. However, there is a time in every boy's life when a hopeless passion becomes a necessity. In the depths of my heart I had sworn an endless, sorrowful devotion, and had clinched the vow by making a laeautiful May basket out of half an eggshell—fragile as my hopes, I told myself. I filled this basket with sugar hearts on which tender sentiments were inscribed in some poisonous, red coloring matter, and suspended it upon the bell-knob of her father's house when the sacred night arrived. This father of hers was a choleric old orthodox deacon named Simon P. Hatch, and by bad luck he came in answer to my frenzied summons, just as I •was climbing over his garden fence. It wasn't too dark for him to see me or to note that I had pulled about six feet of his bell cord through the side of his honse, and this did not tend to make him more amiable than usual. He started in hot pursuit accompanied by a large dog with a bad disposition, and T. A.FFECTIOXAT8 ATTENTIONS RESENTED. Hay basket for him, because it was well known that he was too lazy to make one for himself. However, he generously refused. I pulled oid Hatch's doorbell that May night with a beating heart and lost no time in taking flight. There was & long yard at one side of the house, and I whizzed through it like a cannon ball, making for the open fields beyond. But unfortunately there was a clothes line stretched between two posts at such a height from the ground that it caught me squarely across the bridge of the nose. My head stopped suddenly arid my feet continued. I landed on my back after a giddy plunge, and lay there, I don't know how long, trying to decide whether I was dead or only blind. By and by life enough came back to enable me to crawl toward the street. Both my eyes were nearly closed, so that I could see only the general outlines of houses- and -trees. As I neared the gate, I heard the sound of voices. First Alice asked in pitying tones: "Did he hurt you much? Oh, why didn't yon run faster?" "I didn't mind it," said Harry, "so long as it was for you, though the old man laid it on pretty hard." "Nevermind, dear," whispered Alice, "it was such a beautiful basket, and so good of you to make it for me, I looked out of the window just as the bell rang, and'saw you run away with father after yon," The infamous traitor. He had hidden there waiting for me to hang the basket, and had then allowed old Hatch to catch him in order to get Alice's sympathy.' . ' "I knew you'd come back," said Alice, "so I stole out to console you, though f ather'd give me fits if he caught me. There—oh Harry, two kisses are enough—" They were too much 'for me. Blind and crippled as I was I made a straight rush for the traitor. Just .when he escaped from me I don't know, but a few minutes later I found myself engaged in 20LLISIOS WITH A CLOTHES LEfE. pummeling- old Hatch's tall white hitching- post under the misapprehension .that it was my unworthy friend. Then I crawled home, sore all over, especially in my heart. It was with such pastimes as these that we made May nig-ht merry in the older time. I wonder if there is any spot on earth where it is now celebrated as we used to do wa^ down in Maine years ago? Perhaps not; but there are men scattered all over tbe country who would give half .of what they have since laboriously stolen from their fellow-men to have again the hearts that beat under their 'jackets in those May days. HOWA.RD FIELDING.' —At the, town of Ukiah, in northern California, last summer, I was handed a small sheet of paper by the village bill-poster, which I have preserved as a curiosity, says a writer in the Globe- Democrat. It was an advertisement of the Elite restaurant '-Meals at all hours, price two bits," and all that sort of thing-. The. striking feature of the bill, however, was a line in large, black type, which read: "Cooking done by a white lady." I never could quite understand this remarkable, distinction in cooks. Evidently colored or Chinese women had previously done the cooking iii U^iah. • The Narrow Escape of a >'!(-ht Clerk lit n Seattle Hotel. Louis Franz, the night clerk at the Grand, relates the following story of a narrow escape from the dream wrath of a somnambulist: "You see," said Louis, "anold mining man took a room one night, and some hotirs afterward as I was dozing behind the desk—for I was tired—I was startled by hearing footsteps shuffling down the stairs. I looked up and saw my friend, the mining man, with a six- shooter in his right hand. He walked right over toward me, his eyes staring blindly and almost starting out of their sockets. It is hard to tell what thoughts flashed, through my brain as he approached. "What could he mean, and was I alone with a maniac? "He walked up to my desk and took deliberate aim at me. I expected him to follow the action with a couple of shots, and so I dodged down behind my desk and rang for the police. " 'Fork over that three hundred dollars, young fellow,' he cried; 'you don't run in any cold deck on me and get away with the spoils.' "Of course I knew the situation immediately. He had been 'done up' in a game by some card sharps and had been dreaming the matter over until the operations of his mind led him in his sleep to seek, redress of his grievances. I don't know why ha tackled me, but perhaps the man who had worked him was good-looking—and something like me in facial appearance. What did I do? I knew it would take some moments for the police to arrive, and time was very precious just then. "T-ll pay you the money,'I yelled. 'Put down the pistol and you can have your blasted three hundred.' "The miner lowered' his weapon. ''Come this way,' said I, and he followed me into barroom. Behind the bar was a big dish of water. I fumbled a moment with the money drawer to deceive the murderous-looking sleeper, and then, quick as a flash, I threw the basinful of water across the counter into his face. "He yelled, dropped his pistol to the floor, rubbed his eyes a second, and then, fully awakened, .began to look around. He begged a thousand pardons when I explained matters to him and told me how he had gone to bed wishing that he could get hold of the man who had played an unfair game with him in a hotel east of the mountains. That miner invites me out to supper every time he comes to town, and is one of my best friends now. But it makes my soft brown hair curl, even when months have passed since the occurrence, whenever I cogitate on the story of the 'Bloodthirsty Dreamer; or, The Lucky Waterbasin.'"—Seattle Telegraph. "It makes me tired! People ask me— is marriage a failure ? Of course 't'aint; s'pose I don't know my biz—what am I here for?" If the women only keep healthy they keep in good spirits and cnpid is in demand. Let every enfeebled .woman know this —there's a remedy that'll cure her, the proof's positive. Here's the proof—if it doesn't do you good within reasonable time, report the fact to its makers and get your money back without a word—but you won't do it! The remedy is Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription—and it has proved itself the right remedy in nearly every case of female weakness. It is not a miracle. It won't cure everything—but it has done more to build up enfeebled and broken-down women than any other medicine known. OF GENERAL INTEREST. —The waltz had its beginning in Germany, and thence was taken to France, shortly after which, it was introduced into England. Hungary was the birthplace of the galopade or galop, and from Poland came the stately polonaise or polacca and mazourka. —It Doesn't Pay.—Out of fifty counterfeiters arrested in the last eighteen months, only twenty-three of them had passed fifty dollars worth of the "queer" and only five of them had made a profit of three dollars' per day for the time engaged. It doesn't pay as well as sawing wood at sixty cents a cord, und arrest is sure to come within a year or two.—Detroit Free Press. —A London magistrate one day had a little boy as a witness in a case before him. and he thought fit, according to the usual practice, to test the boy's orthodoxy by first asking, in a parental way, whether he knew where bad people went to after they were dead. His lordship was very much disconcerted by the ready answer: "No, 1 don't; no more d.on't you; nobody dou't know that." —A western man has a scheme for decreasing drunkenness. He would establish a state inebriate asylum and compel those who make and sell liquor pay for its maintenance. He would tax the distiller 81,000, the wholesaler S500 and the retailer §100 a year in its behalf. Then he would treat drunkenness as insanity and confine all drunkards in the asylum until they are permanently cured. —The oldest married couple in the •world is to be found in La Quinparte, Minn. Mr. Daniel Salisbury completed his 103d year on December 14, and his wife is seven years older. They were married in January, 1811. Until recent ly this venerable pair lived by themselves in a log house on the Yellow Bank river, and both are described as being still in good health. On his 100th birthday, Mr. Salisbury walked to Bellingham and back, a distance of seven miles each way. —Passengers at Halewood Station, near Liverpool, Eng-., had a startling experience the other day. A porter on walking- along the platform was confronted by a full-grown lioness which, immediately raised herself as if about to spring. The porter gave an alarm, and there was a general stampede, the station master closing the door and leaving the lioness in possession. A neighboring farmer succeeded in wounding the animal, after which it was dispatched with a large hammer. It is a fine animal, and is supposed to have strayed from a menagerie. —The Pharmaceutical Era tells of five ways to cure a cold: 1. Bathe the feet in hot water take a pint of hot lemonade. Then sponge with salt water and remain in a warm room. 2. Bathe the face in very hot water every five minutes for an hour. 3. Snuff up the nostrils hot salt water every three hours. 4. Inhale ammonia or menthol. 5. Take four hours' active exercise in the air. A ten-grain dose of quinine will usually break up a cold in the beginning. Anything that will set the blood in. active circulation will do it, whether it be drugs or the use of a bucksaw. —The St. Louis Globe-Democrat tells of a commercial traveler who probably carries the most unique "sample" in the profession. It is nothing less than a human body three years old, an example of the efficacy of a certain embalming fluid. For three years this mummy has been transported on the railroads as a sample case would; and, indeed, there is no outward sign which would indicate the uncanny natura of its contents.. In this instance the longer the body is preserved the more of an advertisement it is for the fluid in the reins of the "stiff."
