1 had quite a pleasant conversation
last evening with one of President
Cleveland's old schoolmates, who is
now occupying a position heic in one of
the Government Departments. This
old sclioolmate of the President's was
born at Fayettesville, New York, the
town that Mr. Cleveland visited some
He told me that Fayetteville is a
beautiful village of some 1,600 or 1,800
inhabitants, lying in a romantic region
about seven miles east of Syracuse, and
is noted, among other things, for its
production of lime. The Cleveland
family removed to that place in the
year 1840, when the Rev. Kiehard Cleve
land, the President's father, became
pastor of the Presbyteilan Church, and
when Grover was only three months
The gentleman referred to relat
ed some interesting reminiscences of
the President's boyhood days at Fay

"GROVE" A GREAT FAVORITE.
• 'Grove.' as the boys all knew him,'
said my iuformanl, 'was always a fa
vorite in and out of school. He was a
strong, good-natured youth, about as
studious as the average school l>ov, and
did not, as I recollect him, evince any
special liking for books. Indeed, there
was nothing about him when we were
school txiys together that indicated fn
ture greatness. There were many oth
er boys there who were called brighter.
Although' Grove' was full of fun and
joined in alt the boyish sports, such as
riding down bill, snow-balling and the
carrying off of front gates, there was a
certain marked earnestness iu his man.
ner which distinguished him from the
other boys. When we went to the Fay
etteville Academy, 'Grove' belonged to
a debating society, and I frequently
heard him in debate. lie was not real
ly a fluent speaker,but I remember very
well that he rapidly developed into a
close and forcible reasoner. If bis ar
gumentative blows did not flash with
brilliancy, they were heavv ai d elf- ct
iye for a boy of fourtee.. years of age.
YOUNG CLEVELAND COURAGEOUS.
'Grover was a decidedly courageous i
boy. lie would patiently bear a gre.it
deal of hectoring Ix-fore he would tight,
but lie was a bard antagonist when bis 1
wuth became kindled. I recollect one i
occasion when he gave an exhibition,
not only of his courage, but also of bis j
ability to defend himself against the
assaults of a fellow almost twice bis (
size. This individual was one of our J
school bullies. Young Cleveland had

Aiding upon hiui, whereupon he turned
and said : 'lf you don't shut up I'll
slap your mouth.' 'I don't think you I
will,' said Grover, very coolly, as lie 1
straightened himself for battle. But
the bully did not slap him, and 'Groye'
went in rough and tumble, and in a
very short time he bad his enemy down
bellowing loudly for mercy. lie was
let up with a oloody nose, and his repu
tation as a fighter iiretrievably lost.
This great victory established the con
queror's title to hero of the school, and
we were never thereafter afraid if we
had 'Grove' Cleveland on our side. He
was one of the few U>ys who dared to |
make the hazardous ascent of the bell i \ j
of the academy byway of the lightning
rod. I remember that a few of u<
cbmbed up one night, w hen he was of
the party to usher iu the Fourth of Ju
ly by ringing tire bell at twelve o'clock.
We were a little eaily and went to sleep
in the belfry, around the floor of which
there was no railing to prevent our roll
ing off. I believe on this occasion the
trustees, or somebody else in authority,
had forbidden the ringing of the bell,
but we couldn't see how the nation's
birthday could be properly celel rated
at Fayetteville,at least without'whoop
ing up' tle old bell, and so at twelve o'-
clock we made her ring! While we
were making all the noise we could up
there we heard other noises in the build
iug below us.and having the fear of the
trustees before our eyes, rapidly slid
down the rod! We re;iched the ground
safely with the exception of Gruver.one
of whose legs caught on a split in the
rod, which lield him there firmly aud he
could neither get up or down. We lib
erated him finally .after much dilliculty,
but his leg was pretty badly huit. lie
was already very fond of fishing, and I
sat with him many a day on a log on
the banks ot Limestone Creek and
fished for suckers. He was a quiet and
earnest fisherman, and usually took
home a good string. I have always
thought it a little singular t hat he nev
er cared for horseback riding as a boy.
I have no recollection of ever seeing
him ou a horse's back. J don't, how
ever, think he was afraid of a horse by
HE CLERKS IN A DRUG STORE.
'When Groyer's father moved from
Fayetteville, young Cleveland entered a
drug store at that place where he re
mained until 1853 or '54. He boarded
with his employer and was at that time
one of the most popular young men in
the town. He was always genial,
friendly and accommodating, making a
first-class clerk. He was a firm friend,
and an agreeable companion, although
not inclined to be demonstrative—more
apt to listen quietly than to lead in con
versation. He was thoroughly upright,
truthful and conscientious, and all who
knew him regretted when at the age of
seventeen he left the village to join his
father's family\t Clinton.
NOTED FOR PATIENT INDUSTRY.
'lf young Cleveland was not a brill
iant boy at the academy, he was cer
tainly noted for patient industry. If
he did not excel in 4 any particular
branch, hjs status for general proficien
cy was equal to that of the best of his
fellows there. Geometry was not taught
at the Fayetteville Academy in our day.
Algebra was the highest of the mathe-
matical instructions given, and this
was one of his favorite studies,- Indeed,
his mental current appeared quite early
to run toward the exact sciences, and
to logic especially. History was anoth
er of his chosen studies. A member of
his father's church had a line library.to
which many of us had freo access, and
Grover availed himself of the opportu
nity thus offered to enrich his mind
with historical reading, for which he
always showed an es|ecinl fondness.
'Plutarch's Lives,' as I recollect, was
in his library, and I am very sure that
he and I liege ml oyer those charmed
pages about the same time. 1 liaye no
doubt that they left an indelible im
press ou his young mind, as they surely
did on my own.
TOOK A LIVELY INTEREST IN POLITICS
'I really cannot say whether he was
much of a newspaper reader. A small,
weekly paper was uublished there, and
besides the Syracuse daily papers were
taken by many persons at Fayetteville.
As we know there can be no doubt that
he took a lively interest in the great po
litical issues which were then wrench
ing asunder parties, aud beginning to
shake the country to its very founda
tion. As lie was not old enough to vote
when he lived at Fayetteville, I never
knew anything about Ins politics, llis
father was a Democrat, but I saw him
once at an Abolitionist meeting, wtiere
they were exhibiting a runaway slave,
who for this purpose had been sent over
from Syracuse, which was then a sta
tion of the 'Underground Railway.' I
think, however, Elder Cleveland, as he
was known, took no part iu the meet
WHY HE DIDN'T GO TO COLI.EQK.
'When Grover left Fayetteville to go
to Clinton, it was generally understood
that he would prepare himself for col
lege, and enter the ministry. I know
my mother used to say, 'Grover Cleve
land is a good Christian boy and will
become a great preacher.' He has quite
recently told why he did not go to col
lege. He surely did not lack the desire,
but rather the pecuniary ability. llis
father's family was large and his salary
would now be regarded as a mere pit
tance. After providing for the neces
saries of life for his children, there was
not much of a margin for the expense
aud support of college training for all
the boys. Grover found himself obliged
j to forego the cherished hope of his
youth, and he choked down the great
disappointment mauful'y and struck
out boldly for himself. It wodld ap
pear to have been so ordained, that he
should through trial and struggle devel
op himself for the great work which his
country would n quire of hint.

Old Fashioned Tooth Pulling.
I remember havii g a tooth pulled
once by the old doctor. His wife* s-ated
herself in a chair, and placed me ou the
floor with my heal clasped between
her knees. Then the doctor brought
out his turnkey—which was con
structed somewhat like one of the lev
ers with a movable hook used for the
rolling of logs—and fished from hi<
pocket an old baudana ' handkerchief,
which had done service for mouth, nose
and perspiration for a month or two,
aud wadded it about the handle of the
machine. This bundle he pushed in
my mouth, after having lanced the
gums, and commenced working to get
the end of the hook under the tooth.
Having accomplished this he began to
grind ou the handle, and aL the same
moment the old lady tightened her
on my head. The top of my head
seemed pried off aud all the marrow in
my bones seemed to be pulled up in
strings toward my neck. Crack ! the
instrument slipped off. Again it was
fixed, and again the top of my head
was turned upward with a violent
crash, and again the reluctant marrow
was drawn out in strings. Turee times
did the machine slip ; the fourth trial
was made, the top of my head was
wrenched entirely off, and the marrow
in my system, my boots, bones, and
all appeared to be drawn up with ater
tiGc pull, aud the molar was extracted.
I pocketed the tooth, he pocketed a
shilling, and then I left.
It was not an uncommon occurrence
in those days for the doctor when try
ing to locate his hook teyond the space
filled by his banderchief to bitch on
the wrong tooth, and to jerk out a
grinder in place of the real offender. In
such a case the sufferer took it all good
naturedly.and underwent with as much
endurance as he cou Id the correction ol

AN KAItLY MOItMN'G lIY I'KNNS
What do \ou say, old man ; shall we
go ? I being ready for any kind of
spoil of course said, yes. This meant
to get up before daybreak and try our
luck with the trout, away up In the
woods near the rise of l'enns creek.

my friend and landlord, J. 11. Bibby,
who is heart and soul an angler, know
ing all about the business is good i
uouglil to pilot me through my experi
ence. That there is an abundance of
tlsh we know, because one or two good
baskets had already been taken. So at
half-past - o'clock on a lovely June
morning I was wakened from a sound
sleep to get up. Up I got, and found
my kind host already with pony har
nessed and tackle complete. I drove
through a lovely country to the spot he
intended to try. Clouds obscure the
sky and there is not a bieath of air. We
should prefer a slight breeze, nor do we
altogether like the leaping of the llsh.
Why or wherefore I cannot explain,but
this token seems to bode no good to the
angler. My own experience is that
when trout are leaping clean out of the
water they do not miss at the fly. Shall
we take our chauce ?
We wade in and take our stations,
and our rods are soon at work, with a
bout 12 yards ot line out. It is n bad
practice to tidget about at this style of
Ashing. Stick to one pool if you can,
and do not make your casts too long. I
remember once having grand s|K>it
with sea trout, with a line not more
than twice the length of tire rod, and 1
never moved from the rock on which I
stood. The silence on this early morn
ing is very striking. The stillness ob
served by my host on the bank opposite
indicates that he is earnestly bent upon
Ashing. So I try and follow Ins ex

a bit at the surface, but no time to
waste in playing it. because if you can
not take the speckled lieautiea before
six o'clock it is no good tiylng after.
So after a brief pause you hear another
splash. The double rap that follows is
the coup dt grace given upon the stones,
and so we go on for two hours and fly a
way, and as no llsh are touching our
flies, we at last give up the game.
Not for the first time, as we now sit
down on a rock, to count our fish, you
think how hungry you feel and have no
regret for having turned outsoeaily.

THE IJOY JONES.
The American Congress in 1828.
The Heptesentalive?, folliwiug the

mons. us d to sit with their hats on.
in IS-2S a motion that no member
should rem .in cov.- Ed within the bar
of the House was discussed,and at first
defeated by ten majority. Anorder by
the speaker that visitors In the gallery
should not wear their hats while ihe
house was in session gave great offense
to some ol the Representatives, and
was enforced willi difliculty.
The ladies had been original'y ex
cluded from the galleries of the House
in accordance with the British prece
dent. But, when the famous Jay
treaty was brought home for ratifica
tion, the House came near refusing to
make the necessary appropriations for
carrying it into effect, and heated de
bates ensued. One night at a paaty,
Mrs. I/tngdon, of New Hampshire,
whose husband was a member, ex
pressed her iegret to Hon. Fisher
Ames, of Massachucetts, that shA
could not hear the arguments, especi
ally his speeches. Mr. Ames, gallantly
replied that he knew of no reason why
ladies should not be permitted to hear
the debates. "Then said Mrs. Lang
dan, 'if you let me know when you
next iutend to 9peak I will make up a
party of ladies.and we will go and hear
you.' The notice was given, the ladies
went, and since then the congressional
orators have always had fair heareis—
with others perhaps not very fair.
The Senate chamber now occupied
by the supreme court was admirably a

eight gentlemen who then composed
(he upper House. Modeled after the
theatres of ancient Greece, it possessed
excellent acoustic properties, and there
was ami lo accommodation in the
galleries for the few strangers who
then visited Washington. The Senate
used to meet at noon, and generally
conclude its day's work at 3 o'clock,
while adjournments over from Thurs
day to the following Monday were fre
quent. Occasionally set speeches would
be madeon some importantquestion;but
the debates were generally colloquial,
and, as there was no verbatim reports
of the proceedings, Senators would
change or modify their views during
the consideration of a bill witlioutbeing
placed on the record as inconsistent

DYKING THE MOUSTACHK.
Tlio Practice Nol Much Inl%il In at
No one except policemen. nreraen,
especially exempt firemen, and it few
chivalrous and ancient gentlenien, now
dyea his mustache, and the number of
the men who change the color of their
hair by artificial means is smaller still.
When the policeman with five service
stripes wua sworn in, It was the cus
tom of almost everybody to use dye.
Napoleon 111. was partially responsible
for this. lie had a gorgeous mous
tache, black, and with nice long ends
ready for u wax polish like a whole
some stove, lie set the fashlonu for
Paris, and Paris for America. Now
the custom has almost gone out, und
the purple-black moustache is rare
throughout the land.
Au old barber who has been in the
business a good lifetime, explained the
change. "Twenty years ago a third of
the mon that came here wanted their
mustache dyed. A man with a heavy
and fast-growing moustache halto have
it dyed every week, and it was a good
thing for us. Even ten years ago
tnere were many of them left, but the
fall of the French empire and the em
peror left the style without support,and
thecliaracter of the moustache changed.
Instead of being long, and glossy, and
black, short and stubby mustaches
came into fashion.
"Cubans und southern men to
raise moustaches without ever shaving
their upper lips. This made the hair
come out In graceful clusters instead
of spikes and long stiff hairs. There
isn't any use of dyeiug a moustache
uuless jou raise a long one and wax
out the ends, so these short, clustering
moustaches changed the dyeing fashion
The knowledge of the chemicals em
ployed had a great deal to do with it.
Powerful acids a 'd compounds are at
the base of all dyes and hair restorers
that do anything. If weak solutions of
harmless things ate used they will have
no t flVct, while a drug powerful enough
to change the color of the hair must
have some effect on the scalp and the
brain, as the base of all hair dyes was
nitrate of silver. Care was liken to
prevent its gutting on the skin, and
sulphate of potash was used by careful
barbers to counteract its effect on the
scilp Nitrate of silver is a powerful
caustic, and its use by a careless bar
ber is dangerous. Much more was the
d inger in dyeing the hair brown. The
c ininon dye for that was made of sul
phur and sugar of ieid. The solution was
sometimes carelessly rubla-d into the
scalp and then it was sure to cause
some disease of tho brain. Applied
steadily it effects the mind.
"At the same time Willi the notori
ety of several cases of puis- uii.g from
hair dye, came a reaction of fashion in
favor of gray and balds heads. The
young man who had a patch of scalp
showing through the top of his head,
instead of concealing it, tiad his hair
cm so short that it showed, and he was
envied by his fellow young men. It
also became fashionable for a young
man with black h lir to a fewer**
TTrrJuJa Hi 11. It made him an object
of inteiest on account i f supposed woes
and trials that made his hair grow pre
maturely gray. Dyein the hair would
destroy Litis charm and djeing went
speedily out of fashion.
"In the old days it was the best bar
ber that did the most dyeing. Now it
is the cheap ones. An Irish immigrant
with sandy hair and beaid w.nts to bo
dressed up,and when he puts his Sunday
black clothes on has his Indr and mous
tache dved to suit. The old volunteers
were never dressed up until their mous
tacho were a lurid black. The police
men still keep up the habit ; they think
it makes them look (ietce and martial.
If you see the judice force on parade,
you won't see many gray hair, even on
the men with six stripes. They are
evidently old enough to have gray hairs
but their moustaches are as black and
shiny as their shoes. The old sergeants
dve as steadily as anybody in town.
Even if a policeman leaves the force he
takes this habit with him, and, like
the old volunteer fireman, he literally
soakes his head in dye.
'There are a few gamblers who dye
but not many big ones. The dealer or
case keeper may dye, but the backer
doesn't. The common gambler lias a
constant wish to look like a gentleman.
He can't as he carries every fashion too
far. The big and quiet men learned
long since that dyeing ouiy gave them
away, but in small cities they haven't
learned that yet, and it is considered
essential for a true spot to have a black
waxed moustache and curly black hair,
uo matter what color his eyebrows
It is bard to Ond any man who will
admit that he dyes his moustache, and
it is not always easy to tell whether he
does or not. The old-time Irish-A
merican population were the most
steadiest dyers, but their children have
not taken their places.
A dyed moustache is usually a sign
that the man who wears it thinks he
can deceive other people easily. lie is
usually in a position of some authority
petty or large and has a tendency to be
self-possessed, and possibly pompous.
He has the goodof the joy to begot out
or this world and he takes his full
share. A dyed moustache is an aid to
a phrenologist that he is thankful for.
It has an influence on certain bumps.
