A. P1A.NO PERFORMANCE AS HEARD AN OLD ENGINEER. "I was loitering around tbe streets last night," said Jim Nelson, one of tho old locomotive engineers running into New Orleans. "As I had nothing to do, I droppt d into a concert and heard a sleeklooklng Frenchman play a piano In a way that made mo feel all over In spots, sajs the New Orleans Times Democrat. •As eoon as he sat down on the stool I knew by the way he handled himself that he understood the machine he waa running. He tapped the keys way up one end, just as if they wore guagee, and he wanted to see if he had water enough. Then he looked up as if he wanted to know how muoh gteam he was carrying, and the next moment he pulled open the throttle and sailed on to the main line as if he was half an hour late. You could bear her thunder over . culverts and bridges and getting faster and faster, until the fellow rooked about in his seat like a cradle. Somehow 1 thought it was old '86' pulling a passenger train, and getting out of the way ol a'special.' Tbe fellow worked the keys on the middle division like lightning, and then he flew along the north end of the line until the drivers went around like a buzz saw, and I got excited. "About the time I waa fixing to tell him to cut her off a llttls he kicked tbe dampers under the machine wide open, pulled ibe throttle way back in the tender, and how we did run! I couldn't stand it any longer and yelled to him that he was pounding on the left side, and if he wasn't careful he'd drop his ash pan. But bo didn't hear. No ono heard mo. Everything was Hying and whizzing. Telegraph poles on the elde of the track lootfed like a row ol cornstalks, the trees appeared to be a mudbank, and all the time the old machine sounded like the hum of a bumblebee. I tried to yell out, but my tongue wouldn't move. He went around curves like a bullet, slipped an eccentric, blew out his soft plug, went down grades fifty feet to the mile,' and not a controlling brake fet. She went by the meeUng point at a mile and a half a minute, and calling for more team. My hair stood up straight, because I knew the game was up ire enough, dead ahead of us was he headlight of a 'special,' In a daze I heard the crash as they struck, and I saw cars shivered into atoms, >eop!e smashed and mangled and ileedlng and gasping for water. I heard anott or orftSQ as the French professor struck the deep keys away [own on the lower end of the southern llvlsion, and then I came to my enses. There he was • at a dead standstill, wltb the door of the firebox of the machine open, wiping the pof- r&UOQ off hia (ace and bowing to the people before him. •If I live to be 1.000 years old I'll never forget tho ride that Frenchman fave me on a piano," 0 P.

In Indiana the condliion is good, but fears were expressed by ome of the correspondents, as the rees In some counties have been covered with ice. In Parke county about .jalf of the buds ar. reported as killed dost of tbe correspondent report all well. In Ohio the development ol the iuds promises a full crop of apples.

In Kentucky the prospects are still good. t was feared that they had developed oo much during the warm epell in 'anuary, but it is now ascertained hat the development was not great enouch to render them susceptible to he recent cold. In Missouri no disaster has yet overtaken the apple rees, and with no unexpected event, he fruit crop will be large. Kansas and Nabraska report little or no dams to apple buds.

That I know about a magnificent territory and its vastly interesting population is due solely to accident. I had become ashamed of wailing east year after year, and made up my mind to hitch my wag-on to the star of empire and learn something of my own great country. 1 knew there was a territory called Utah, wheru Mormons indulged in the domestic eccentricity of polygamy, and that was all. I mifrht visit Salt Lake City. All would depend upon circumstances. Ail did. It chanced that in tho middle of October I found myself in a mining town. I was to cross the mountains on horseback, and snow blocked the way. I sat disconsolately in one of those hostolries that reconcile you to instant death. It was frottcn np on the noble principle of violating every lorging of the human soul. No lath and plaster had ever defiled the virgin boards that separated one hxiraan being from another. It didn't make any difference which door was banged upon. All humanity responded to the thunder. As even a worm will turn, so did my soul revolt when one morning- at an unearthly hour a voice from my keyhole shouted: "Smith, it's time to skip!" "My name's not Smith," I replied, aroused from dreams of homo. ' "What is your name, then? If it isn't Smith it ought to be—you're down in the register as Smith." •> T o. that's not Smith," shouted my opposite neighbor, the day clerk. "Smith's at tho end of the hall." "Well, this Is the end of tho hall." "Aren't there two ends? It's the other end, you fool." "Who wants Smith?" asked a sharp voice in the distance, "I'm Smith." 'What's the matter? I'm -Smith," shouted still another voice. Were the guests all Smiths, myself exocpted? "Well, whichever Smith wants to get up at four o'clock, him's the one," frrowled the keyhole. Both the Smiths slammed their respective doors with a big, big D . "It's Smith in No. 1," screamed the day clerk, and the idiotic porter performed a reveille on No. 1 until the right Smith responded, and everybody but'the other two Smiths and inyso** put out their heads wanting to know where the fire was. If sleeping were a farce, what shall I say of the feeding-? "Kit, drink and be merry," was the cheerful salutation suspended over the dining room entrance. It was a sickly sarcasm, as there was nothing to eat, nothing to drink away from the bar, and bcinfc merry nndor such circumstances was more than could be expected from even a Mark Tapley.

I dared not expostulate, for it was in this sylvan retreat that an innocent "tenderfoot" was asked by the waiter, who carried his riffht hand to the roar of his person an:l laid it firmly upon a vary perceptible pistol, "Ilam or bacon?" "Both." replied the "tenderfoot. This waa too much for human endurance. Drawing forth his pistol, tho unsophisticated child of the mountains exclaimed: "No sich epicurean gor- mandism were allowed in that ar community!" Being- taken for "Smith" was an insult; being starved to death was an injury. It was time for me to go. Shaking the snow off rny feet,. I madly started for the -nearest big town.

HE ENJOYED HIS~MUSIC, And tho Ferryboat I'im»ciiccrn H»<1 » Good Time Hhi>wl«i>. The biff propeller ferry \>oat bewinpr the passengers from a western express had barely left her slip at Jersey City a few days apo when the passengers were attracted from tlieir papers and conversation by the strains of music. On one of the scats near the middle ot the lonfj cabin sat a thin little man, about fifty yetirs old, and on the floor in front of him was a lonfr black box. A broad smile lit up his face as "Sweet Afton," with variations, grew out of tho melodious pins in the box, and when the air was finished he chang-ed it ( to the "Sweet By and By." "When It came to the chorus he leaned over, and, touching a little screw, released an attachment that played on a series of bells ranfred along- the top of the box. The cffeut was exceedingly Bwcet and those who had paid little attention at first began to be interested. An old German woman, -who had been silting at the far end of the cabin, moved to a seat opposite the man. Several others followed her example. The next tu,ne was the "Lullaby" from "Erminie," When it began the man shut off the bell accompaniment and put down a stop that made it sound as if the music waa beinjr played by mandolins. This seemed . to please him more than ever and 'he almost laughed aloud. Finally tho cylinder rolled around to "Home Sweet Home." Then the man opened the lid of tho box, took off all the soft stops and put on the bell accompaniment. The music ran throughout the entire cabin with marvelous sweetness, and from the bejfinninp to the end the man leaned affectionately over the box and kept lime with his forefinger us if he was leading the IKtlo host of musicians inside. When it came to the variations he pot a little mixed on the time. Then his face grew serious and he remained motionless until the air was talcen^up again, when he continued his loading- and allowed the bland smile to play over his features once more. As the boat ran into the slip he turned to the passengers in general and said: "Ain't she a beauty? My father an' mother (rev thot to me for New Year up m Lacka wanna. I tell yer them's th 1 kinder folks ter have." lie drew the cloth gently around the box, then, picking it up as carefully as thouffh it were u baby, he joined the passing crowd.— N. Y.
