THE JOURNAL. OUT THI» OUT THE RETIRED BURGLAR, His Unlooked-Por Experience In a Country House. A SlRht Tim* llroncht n riauli of Slmmr r — Loft tho 1'rcmlMOK n» Funt Hfl *Io Could. "Once in a country village in tho interior part of the state," said a retired burglar to a New York Sun reporter. "I went into n, little house instead ol! a biff one; <>l course I kno\v I should get less, but 1 was half sick, un-J miserable, and I was willing to take less for tho sake of havinff an easier job. It was easy work, and I found myself pretty soon standing in a hall upstairs and looking In at the door of the front chamber. It was dark in tho room except for just a little liffht that came from a turned-down lamp in a room adjoining. I could only see a little of one side of the wall of that other room, for the door, to it was opposite from where I stood, diagonally. If you'd just let me draw you a little diagram I could make it clear to you." Here the retired burglar proceeded to draw upon a page of tho notebook which the reporter handed to him a diagram. When ho went on with his story he indicated tho points referred to simply by touching- them with the poiut of the pencil, but for tho greater convenience of the reader they are marked here with capital letters: A "You see, I was standing iu tiro door hero [lie touched the diagram at the point marked AJ. Hero was tho bed IB] with the headboard up against the partition; this [C] was the bureau. There were some elinii-s aud one tiling and nnothcr round, but not very much, and there wasn't nny carpet. The light •was very dim, but J could sec somebody iu the bed. You can see yourself just how much I could sec of . the other room. "Well, I started across tho room toward the bureau, keeping- an eye on that door to the right until I was half way across, mid then I looked out ahead until I struck the bureau. J set rny lamp down on it and, before 1 had a chance to turn around, in some W0 y—I don't know exactly how, for I was certainly careful enough'—I knocked sonic-thin? ofE. It went down with a crash. I didn't dare move myself, and I stood there facing tho bureau. But whoever it was iu the bed never stirred. I started then to turn and look, but before I'd turned far enough around to KOO anything I knocked something off the other corner. I thought I'd never heard so much noise; I knew well enough what thoy were; they were two children's iron savings banks. I faced around sharp now, but whoever it was in tho bed never moved,, but I saw something in the nest room that roado my hair stand up. "I could see tho other side of that room now from where I stood, and there was here [upon another diagram that ha had drawn ho touched the pencil at B] a bed. "Here [E], alongside the bed. was a chair; here [F] on a table at the foot of tho bed was the turned-down lamp. In tho bed were two children with tho bedclothes drawn up over their heads; they were iu frightful terror. You could see it, and yop could feel it in tho air; it was something more than the fear of somebody in the house. Uending over the bed and pulling desperately at tbo bedclothes to get them out of the children's hands so that she could got in herself was a woman who had evidently been sitting in the chair that stood by tho bed. It was all as plain as could be; it was a neighbor who had come in to > watch; and this was the children's mother who lay in tho room in which I was, and no sound but Gabriel's trumpet could ever waken her. "I got out into tho street somehow, I don't know how,. and ran away us fast as I could," LOST IN THE MAIL. The Curlons •Maiiinm of th» D««d-L«tt«r Office at Wtthlncton. The museum contains many curious and interesting things. In one case ia a mail-pouch, with an ugly slash made by .a sharp knife and stained with blood. The carrier returning from Lochiel, Ariz., July 33, 1885, was killed by Apache ..Indians, who destroyed the mails, leaving this bag on the ground. In another place may bo seen five letters that claim an aristocracy of antiquity, being severally •tamped 1831, 1838, 1832, 1835, and 18SG. Among tho books is a New Testament in Chinese, a life of Ignatius Loyola In Italian, printed in Venice in 1711, and a French volume which dates back to 1087. Near by is the Lord's Prayer in fifty-four languages, and'a certificate of character to an apprentice from his master. The certificate is in German, and was brought to this country a hundred years ago. There aro two miniatures, apparently of father and son, painted on' Ivory, .which were found in a, blank letter from Boston, December 9, ,1882, and many efforts have beou.made by the department to find the,owners, but so far they'have proved: Una vailing. . Two other miniatures that navo much attention are framed in old-, fashioned gold settings which bear upon the reverse sides the inscriptions Lucy Randolph, Obiit April-J3, ITj'J, 1£ 04 years; and Mary Carter, Oblit January 31, 1S70.

Hear it is a sapphire ring set with diamonds, and in close proximity, as if kecpmg guard over these valuables, is a loaded revolver, Tho latter wus sent addressed to a lady in Indiana; but as she never called for it, it drifted here. Then, with singular incongruity, but tasteful!}' displayed, upon shelves covered with crimson cloth are to b« found a piece of wood from the floor of the room in which Jesse James, the notorious outlaw, was killed; stuffed birds; palmetto-wood; nugget gold; seashells; boxes of wedding-cake; false teetli; Easter ejrgs; bottles of salad-oil, cognac, and perfumes; packages of arsenic and strychnine; an array of bowie knives; an old English hat-box that looks as if it had circumnavigated the R-lobe; a coffee-pot; a washboard; samples of barbed-wire fence; a baby cotton-bale; and dolla enough for tho children of an entire village. There is a fantastic garment stamped all over with cards, kinfjs, queens, diamonds, spades, hearts, and clubs mingled in brilliant confusion. A coat like this is much prized by the Sandwich Islanders, who send to America to have it manufactured, the possession of. one being regarded as a badge of distinction. The bright hues of this one arc toned down by the companionship of an exquisite feather fan in .black and white with pearl sticks. Several years since, when the steamship "Oregon" was lost, a portion of licr mail was recovered, and among tho newspapers . were found many dozens of pairs of kid gloves which were being smuggled into this country.

THE ART OF WALKING. How to Cultivate ft Orooofal and Beautiful C;irrbi;f o. The art of walking gracefully is seldom if ever taught with any method or success; arid yet it should be an essential part of a girl's physical training. More or less attention is supposed to be given to the gait and carriage of the body at the danding schools, where tho pupils aro put in line and made to march to music, but natural,easy walking such as would be required for the .street or moving- about the house is rarely it ever taught To bo sure, the pupil is told to turn out and point her toes, and hold up her head, but that is about all; and what causes tho difference between a light or a heavy tread, the correct hip movement on which so much depends, or the position of the arms, are seldom criticised or explained. Hardly one person in a hundred carries the body in a correct position while walking or standing, and yet the laws which produce grace in either are very simple and easy to acquire. The figure in walking or in repose should incline slightly forward, bending the body a little-at the hips. There should be no bend of the knees, or tolling motion of the body. A celebrated professor of physical culture, .who teaches ordinary walking among other, exercises, recommends the following ensy exercises for daily practice; these, he promises, will insure grace in repose aud motion. In the first place, a correct posture should be acquired while standing. Put both feet together, draw the hips well back, holding the stomach in, project the chest forward, draw the shoulders back, hold tho head erect with eyes looking straight ahead, draw the chin in. To'get an absolutely correct pose, it is a p-ond nlan to fasten a couple of KNOWLEDGE Brings comfort and improvement and tends to personal enjoyment when rightly used.

Figs, and teing well Informed, TOO L will «» accept any substitute if offered Weeks to the side of a room, one nvc inches thick, to come exactly at the height 'of tlic hips, iind another four inches thick, to come at the height of the chin. Than sl:iml with the chest touching the wall, the chin and abdomen buiny held back by tho blocks at the proper distance, with tho point of the toes two inches from the baseboard. If you will iissumi! this posture and keep it while walking, you can never go wrong. To practice walking, first take to position described; then sot the rifrhl foot back about twelve inches, a lilt'.c to one side of the left foot, with the ball of the foot only pressing the door lightly; then raise on the ball of the left foot, aud at tlic snme time swing 1 the riffht ley forward, keeping- the knee nearly straight and pitching- the body forward at the same time. Then perform the same movement with the left lep. The idea of practicing this exercise is to accustom a girl to rise easily and gracefully on the ball of the foot at'each step, so that the leg which is passing forward will not be made to bend much at the knee, which is very ungraceful, particularly in a woman. The foot, also, should be set squarely on the floor instead of touching it first with the heels. By practicing- this exercise daily and very slowly, so as to glide instead of jerking along, a graceful walk, it is asserted, will be acquired. Sometimes there are unsuspected physical defects, however, which give an awkward gait. "I hare just discovered," exclaimed a young- girl the other day, who had recently joined a "ladies' athletic club," "why my shoes always run down on one side of tho heel, and why I have always walked badly. I aro what they call knock-kneed, and neither mamma nor I ever suspected it It is quite curable, however, they say, by taking certain exercises, and I have strong- hopes of becoming graceful after all." M nny girls are knock-kneed without bciny aware of the fact It is when the knees aro so shaped that in fast walldnJT or running they come in contact with each other: this causes the child to walk on the inside edge of her foot, and gives a most awkward j*ait To remedy this defect, says one professor, the pupil should stand in the attitude already described as a correct posture, with the heels touching each other and the toes turned out. Now, without moving- the foot, mnke an effort, to separate the knees by a side movement, causing them to spring apart. Repeat this movement without stirring the feet until the muscles are tired,'several times a day. and it cannot fail eventually to straighten the legs.— N. Y. Tribune. Tho Sinn-In Evcnlnc Press. "It is a well-known fact," said a citizen, "that men not habitually accustomed to wearing evening dress sometimes find difficulty in disposing of their hands to their entire satisfaction; indeed, it takes a 'blooded' man to know what to do with his hands and to forget them. Th"e man with his hands behind his back is a familiar figure; and it is a curious fact that upon the signs which one may see in various parts of the town announcing- dress suits for sale or to hire and displaying the figure of a man in evening dress, the roan is almost always represented with one or both hands behind his back; evfin upon these painted canvases, while the man's face is bold.his hands arc shy.. This seems almost a pity. It may be that the painters are moved by a subtle sympathy with, the generality of mankind, or by the. fact that a human hand is a pretty difficult thing to paint: but it seems as though, both for. art's sake and for the public instruction, they should (five to the man on canvas the appearance and bearing of a trained society man."— N.

One of them should be an ordinary wide-mouthed pickle jar, filled with water to near the top. Tho other should be a long, slim flask, which will po into the neck of the jar. This should be inverted, and plunged intotbe jar, so that it will not reach the bottom. This arrangement gives a complete barometer. In fine weather the water will rise into the neck of the flask higher than tho mouth of the pickle bottle. In wet or windy weather it will fall to within an in«h of the mouth of the flask.
