MILLHEIM PA., THURSDAY NOVEMBER 10.. 1887.
A PA PER FOR THE HOME CIRCLE
A DAY IN NEW YORK.
A M<\ Ft. I:X I'KKIK.NVK.
The stranger from Chicago,ln every truth,
hud just parted with hi* last five cents- no,
not to relieve a lu-ggar in the street,as heroes
of romance sometimes do, but for a rank
liaiu sandwich, which, though soled and
tippcrcd with day Iwforo yesterday's roll,
and veneered with mustard of singular fe
rocity, had been to hi lit as modern inaiina
in the great wilderness of New York, .lust
from Chicago, lie had, on the train, IM-I-II
robbed of his satchel and purse, and was
now jßMiniless in a strange city, knowing
absolutely no one. A member of his fami
ly, who h:ol iutemhsl traveling with hint,
was detained, aud would not arrive until
the following evening. He had uo jewelry,
but he was well dressed, well read, and a
student of human nature.
"Too proud to beg, too honest to steal,
He must have a bed, lit* must have a meal."
'This is certainly an ex|s-rience,' he mur
mured, as in the pleasant summer night, he
sauntered under the electric lights that geiu
med Madison Square ; 'and one that would
have made Mark Tapley howl with hil ir
it v. 'l'll see for the next twenty-four hours
what audacity, dr.ss and address c m do in
the big no iiojMiiis.' 1 tow u Broadway, past
the Fifth Avenue Hotel, tlie mammoth
transparency and the electric clock which
never wont, ; down past the hotel where
Bartholdi should have stopped and didn't ;
down opposite the photographer's window,
w here stage kings and queens elbowed Un
real article, whose chances for continuous
royalty seem almost as ephemeral, and so
to the Union Square. The park looked
calm ami Imautiful.
The Loehinvar from Chicago selected an
empty bench, and sat down. Little squads
of people ill twos and threes moved past
him rapidly, mostly upward bound A
couple pause I opposite him, irresolute.
'Let's sit down a moment, Jack. I'm
tired. Why did'ut we ride ?'
'Cant afford it.'
'Humph ! If we hadn't walked you
wouldn't have lent that luau that quarter.'
The lady was p-titc, stylish in apjiearance,
with diamond earrings, a tailor-made suit,
and a French bonnet perched iijkiii suspi
ciously blonde hair. H<-r companion was
tall, hlnck-haircd,siii<Kitli-facod,gloomy, and
wore a check suit ami a tail white hat.

'We ought to have played those two lead

'Oh, they'll have to semi for us yet. if
they don't, I'll give the play just two

pulled out a purse ami some memorandum
liooks, from one of which a hit of p:i|M-i

Jove, Jennie,l've forgotten my Irrr. vv*cii,

the had bargains of Jacob Sharp, they were
The piece of pajn-r attracted the Chicago
wanderer's attention. He pieked it up and
read : ' Opera House, account of Mr.
June .' 'lVrhaps they may return for
it," he thought, and slip|M*l it in his pocket.
'This is really sylvan,' murmured his itnpe
cuniosity, as he inserted his legs lieneatli
the bars of the lietich and reclined at full
length, with the added merit of cost noth
ing. A man might tqieud a summer night
to worse advantage under the cool shadows
of the tr-es, and with the softcm-d sound of
the car IM-IIS to remind him of Gray's
dreamy Arcadia, 'where drowsy tinklings
lull the distant folds.'
But he was mistaken.
Gradually lie nodded, and at length he
slept, nnd dreamed—dreamed that he was a
prisoner in tirt of the Turkish Sultan,
who was just ordering him to Is: bastina
doed for daring to introduce base hall into
the royal harem. Heavens ! He was seized
by four monstrous eunuchs, and thrown
upon his hack, while his hare feet were held
soles upward. Whack, whack, whack !
There was something strangely realistic
about this dream !
Whack, whack, whack ! He writhed in
torture, turned to the eunuchs to protest,
and awoke. Whack, whack, whack !
'Givan out o' this !' The accent was more
suggestive of Cork than Constantinople.
Heavens ! he was wide awake, aud a gray
coated park policeman was hanging awav
at the soles of his feet, endeavoring to tele
seojM* him with a club. *1 lore,here ! What
are you doing ?* It required some seri>en
tine turnings and twistings to release him
self from his iron casing, but at last he
stood upright, Isiiling with indignation.
'What do yon mean, you scoundrel, by as
s wilting one in that way?'
The 'copper' swung his club in the mad
detiiug suggestive manner of his kind, as
he replies!, hut in a tone less harsh : 'lt
was a bit dark, sir, an' I didn't recognize
ye for a gintlcman.'
.'No, and nobody would ever reeogniz.e
you for one.'
'Aisy, now, aisy, or I'll run ye in.*
A night in the station house ! That
would indeed solve the difficulty regarding
free lodgings, but not satisfactorily.
'l'll report you in themoruing.'
'Now, don't ye give me no back talk.
You've got no influence. You're no New
'How do yon know that ?'
*l'yc think a New Yorker 'd dare call a
policeman a scoundrel ? Go on, now, lie
fore I hurt ye.' A push facilitated the Chi
cago man's departure. He felt a terrible
sense of humiliation as lie walked slowly
with aching feet down Fourth avenue to its
outlet—'The Land of the Midnight Sun.'
That land is surely the Bowery. Music,
bar-room, noisy and beery revelers, fruit
stands lit by smoking torches, electric and
incandescent lights by thousands, punctua
ted here and there with gaudy glass lamps,
brilliantly illuminated and displaying an
nouncements of hotels with high soundiirg
names and low sounding prices : 'Beds, 25
cents ; single r00m5,35 cents ; gents only.
No, none of these, even if lie had the
means. Better the open air. But he can
not, footsore as he is, walk about all night.
Down through Chatham square and into
Park Row he passed. The whirl of the
morning paper presses was just beginning,
while lights in every window, and a busy
flitting to and fro, proclaimed that the
events of the day throughout the world
were there being photographed for history.
He walked wearily about until two o'clock.

marked 'Harlem.' He entered with them,
eiisrunsod himself in n corner, closed his
eyes, learns I baek, and awaited the worst.

'Well how inauy times do you want my
'Beg pardon, sir ; I thought—,' and the
conductor retired. The western waif-rode
to Harlem, and slept all the way, though
with a troubled conscience.
But then ? H* stood on Harlem bridge
and gazed moodily Into the water. A steady
tramp of feet caused him to look around.
They were the p issengers from the east who
reached New York at that welnl hour by-
way of Harlem bridge. There were only
half a dozen of them,and they were making
frantie efforts to gain the elevated railroad
station at One Hundred and Twenty-fourth
str<-et. A woman was among them, and
and she tiirmsl, when on the middle of the
bridge, and addressed a man who walked
eloselv behind her.
'How dare you speak to me, sir !'
'That's all right,my dear miss. No harm

'You insolent puppy, you've done nothing

The stranger from Chicago crossed over to
where she stood,as her pursuer slunk away.

But, much to his gratification, his little
'hluff' was unsuccessful, and they were

Forty-seventh street. He saw her safely
registered at tlie Windsor, ncoepted meekly
her protestations of gratitude and her hus
band's card, and canglit a last glimpse of

'Thank yon, no. Had too tnueh sleep
lately. Reckon I'll sit down in the reading
room and think.' He did so, and slept nti
distnrbid until 7 o'clock, in a velvet cush*
i iuuvtl • lmii-. When In* awoke lie descended
to the palatial wash room, freshened him
self up with hot and cold water am! scented
soap from a marble basin, dried his face
and hands on a spick span clean towel, ig
nor*d the jsirter with his whisk broom and
desire for a dime,dodged tbe bootblack with
rare science, and stood in the street, feeling
like a four time winner.
Now for breakfast and the morning ji-
He strolled down a side street filled with
fashionable houses. In the doorway of
these he saw an assortment of papers that
had ls-en left by tbe carrier. The household
was not yet astir. He coolly ascended tlie
steps, sat down with deli Iteration and read
for half an hour. Then, refolding the jour
nals, lie left theiu as he had found them nnd
sauntered on. Soon he had formulated a
plan for breakfast, not more daring than
the exigencies of tbe occasion demanded.
He sel-ct<*d the handsomest hotel in tlie
vicinity, walked boldly in, examined tbe
register critically, uttered an exclamation
of pleasure, took a handful of tnotpicks,
strolled into the bar and out again, ]tnssed
up a flight of marble steps, placed bis hat
ii|x>n an extension hat rack, tislnsl out
some letters and telegrams from his pocket,
to look business like, nodded loftily to tlie
head waiter, who stood at the entrance of
tlie cosy breakfast r<x>m, was obsequiously
shown to a choice seat, aud, to a bending
servitor lie gave his breakfast order. And
such an order ! Quality and quantity were
both represented, and he ate with an ap|H*-
tite in no way lessened by the thought that
the meal would probably he digested in
jail. The waiter ! He expected a'tip.' So
well served a breakfast deserved one. The
head waiter ? lie stood on guard at the
diMir. What if he hail the hotel detective
lurking in tlie shadow !
To push back his chair, rise with dignity,
brush a few crumbs from his coat and walk
out, coolly ignoring the expectant waiter
was no easy task. How long that dinning
room seemed. Ah ! He knew now the
feelings of the condemned criminal in his
walk to the gallows, only here there was no
friendly arm to lean upon. The threshold
was crossed at last, add he seized his hat,
only to lie chilled to the marrow by f*eling
the head waiter's breath U|MUI the hack of
'What room, sir, please ?'
'Ninety-nine,' he replied, at random, his
nerves bracing to tlie situation. He strol
led down, turned me first corner, and ran
like a thief.
He felt like one, too.
The balance of the morning he passed in
the muling room of tlie Cooper Union, pe
rusing many interesting and instructive
liooks, hut none which taught him how to
still his conscience. 'Pshaw !' he exclaim
ed, as he once more trod the streets ;
'when I'm in funds, I'll pay for the-break
fast and everything else.' At 1:30 o'clock
he stood on the corner of Broadway, Fifth
avenue and Twenty-third street.
It was Saturday, and the junction of the
three great thoroughfares—the busiest in the
United States—was alive with carriages,
cars,pedestrians on business and pedestrian's
on pleasure bent. Stylish women and girls,
hound matineeward, added pictorial beauty
to the scene, with their exquisite toilets,
rosebuds under their dainty chins, daisies
topping their summer hats, and their fleecy j
garments rivaling tlie sunset clouds in color j
ami texture. An omnibus, chartered by an
enterprising business linn to convey their j
pat: ons far over to the west side free of j
charge, stood at the corner. With a chuck- j
le of delight at his own audacity he took a
seat within it. Alighting after a long ride
at the door of the establishment, he walked |
quietly down the avenue and entered the

flrnnd Opera House building. With much
' inward trepidation, but presenting an out
ward KIIOW of virtuous confidence,comliined
with a iTrtiin air of lofty scorn, which
he rigidly surmised to le a concomitant
of t beatrieal character, he was about oiler
ing to the doorkeeper tbe pass which he had
picked up in tbe park, when bis eye fell
upon its original owner, who, with a fasbiou
bly dressed lady, stood disconsolately with
out the gde. There was but one thing to
| lie done.
'lieg pardon, but this pass Is yours, I
think, sir?' Tho Thespian smiled joyoinly.
'Certainly, sir, it is ; hut how ?'
'1 sat near you iu tho park butt evening,
found this where you hid been sitting, and
fancied that I should dud you here.'
'You aro very kind, I'm sure. Are jou

Shakespeare : 'All the world's a stage, and
all the men and women merely players.'
And he iiuhliishiugly replied : 'I am.'
'Then I'll see If Ittisincss Manager Mat
thews whotild give you a seat.' That offi
cial dbl so, and though separated from his
new found friends, the penniless pilgrim
| from the Like City saw an excellent play,
iu which it was demonstrated that all the
p.s>r |s'oplo were saints aud all the rich
ones sinners. It was evident that tho au

Six o'clock! Our friend was getting hun
gry again. Breakfast will not last a man
forever. His brother would not arrive in
Jersey City before 9 o'clock It was a long,
long walk down to City Hall, hut he arrived
there at last, noting on his way how cheap
everything seemed—when a jierson was
|H*iiniless. Strolling toward Cortland street
ferry, he saw a brilliantly lighted saloon.
He entered. It was richly decorated, aud a
tli rong of gentlemen were busily engaged
imbibing, arguing, and examining the real
ly valuable art treasures ujsm the walls.
A large table near the door was covered J
wit It a tempting lunch, free of course, to j
'.hose who purchased wet goods iu the es
tablishment. How appetizing it looked, I

: pats of butter, a lieu ildering array of l>r*ul
| :.ud er.it ki rs, three or four kinds of cheese
and a noble joint of cold roast beef. The
nervy waif from the West sauntered slowly
in among the throng. He examined the
pictures critically, t<*>k a clove, wi|ted his
mouth ostentatiously as lie approached the
lunch counter, and then pitched in. He
sampled nearly everything. Once, when
! lie felt that the basilisk eye of a barkeeper
was on him, he only cut up an extra slice I
ofbi-uf, an I givly hummed "Itock-a-Ttye,
Baby," with his mouth full and Ids knee* j
trembling in tear. Another trying orde.l j

Washington iu *rk<t on a Saturday night ,
is a sight not to forgotten. The *tt itiger ;
had hours in which to view its peculi iritie* '
before train time. He must cross the lerrv
"trait mrpt Ms brother at nine as he alighted
from the train, for he did not know at what
hotel his relative meant to stop or what
ferry he intended to cross. But—
The ferry pass .'
Only three ceuts ! He wouldn't beg. He
was too near the goal for that.
'Hey, Rah way Jake, are you goiu' over
de ferry soon ?'
'Yass, going now ; right away.'
'Den I'll drive over wid ycr.' It was a
large farmer's wagon covered with canvass.
As the Jeraeyman and the butcher's hoy
were climbing on to the front, their unseen
Chicago friend crawled softly into the back
of the vehicle and crouched down into the
straw. When the fares had lieeu paid, and
the boat reached, he slij>|cd out as quietly,
dust is] himself oft' with his haudkerchief.and
entered the cabin. The traiu was on time.
The brothers returned to New York in a car
ri ige, and drove to the very hotel which the
impecunious one had left with fear and
trembling. His first act was to liquidate
every financial obligation lie had incurred,
even to the ferryboat,horse car and theatre.
Not If She Knew It.
The door bell of the Vanity house rang at
aiiout eight o'clock the other night, and
Mrs. Vanity said, excitedly, to her hus
"There, Charles, I just, know that' the
furniture ran was coining witli the new
lied-room set we bought to-day, and if it is I
just won't receive it, that's all."
"Why not ?" asks Mr. Vanity.
"Why not ?" rcjieats Mrs. V. "Do you
think I'm going to pay $17." for a chamber
set and then have it sent out here after
dark so none "of the neighbors can soe it

She would not for the world hare
any one believe that she teaches
school. Ob, no! But why T Is there
any disgrace attached to earning one's
living t Rather the opposite : bat it
is so high-toned to appear to be able
to live without work. Alas 1 for our
Republic that such is the esse. It is
the ambition of ouryoang men to get
a clerkship in a bank or mercantile
office in the city, and when thoy get a
week's vacation they return borne
sporting sham lewelry, cheap, trashy
rings, and wearing load-patterned
clothes—all done to impress others
with the importance of the young man
who 'is in business in the city.'
Then there are others who put on
'beggarly airs' by pretending tbey are
better off than they. An acquaint
ance drinks champagne, so must they;
a friend pays a dollar and a half to
see some star actress, so must tbey
even if they have to run into debt to
the landlady of the boardiog-house.
They haven't stamina enough to say
'I can't afford such an expense.'
All such sham and pretence is bat
another 'beggarly air,' and is really a
disgrace to tbe youth.
Young men and young women, be
honest. There is no disgrace in being
poor : there is no humiliation in hav

in that pride which says, 'No, I can
not afford such and such a luxury.'
There is a nobility which far tran
seuds that of a duke or a marquis, ia
that young man who says, I am a
worker. I use my bauds for a living.'
The man who earns a dollar by honest
work, is worth a thousand idlers, and
the one who acknowledges bis true

citizen thsn anyone who puts on beg

AN IRISH FAMILY.
Hard to meet a Rent Bill of Seven
teen Dollars a Year.
A correspondent of the New Or
leans Picayune, writing from Ireland,
says: One of these carts coming by
was in charge of a man and a woman
who willingly stopped to talk, and as
we rested under tbe thorny hedge and
Flo shared her luncheon with tbe
woman, I asked her all manner of
questions. She was a very good
specimen of her class, the wife of a
poor, very poor farmer. She was
barefooted. Her gown of cheap wool
en materiel. A big flimsy brown
shawl covered her shoulders. Above
it rose a streng neck, a shapely bead
covered with reddish hair that had a
wave in it, and that was loosely
knotted behind. Her face was freckled,
sunstained, weather-beaten, her blue
eyes smiling. Her person was clean,
ber clotbes poor to tbe last degree, her
feet looked like huge red and yellow
lumps of leather and grestle.
Tbey, she and her husband, lived
six miles from Killarney. Tbey had
a bit of a farm. 'Four cows keep' of
laud, that is enough laud to graze
year in and year out four cows. In
this instance—for a cow's keep varies
according to tbe richness of tbe land—
their farm consisted of eighteen acres.
Most of it was rocky ; there was a bit
of bog from which they cut turf to
sell and for their own fire. They man
aged to raise enough potatoes for their
ownuse most years.
For this farm they paid to their
landlord £3 10s. a year—sl7.so of our
money. Besides tbe rent tbey paid
all tbe taxes on tbe land and poor rates
besides. Tbey bad ten children, most
of tbem large enough, only there was
no work for them to do. They lived
in a wild country spotted with small
farms as unproductive as their own;
there was no town nearer than Killar
ney,no place for the boys to get work.
Sometimes some of tbe little ones got
a little schooling. For this tbey paid
tbe teacher a shilling and a quarter.
Their food was only potatoes, milk
and stir about—mush made of yellow
American cornmeal. Some of the
children had never tasted meat in all
their lives, nor worn a shoe. The bit
of white bread Flo gave her was the
first she bad tasted in a year, and she
only "tasted" that, slipping tbe rest
of it into the bosom of her frock to
take home to tbe "babbies."
The load of turf, about two barrels,
would sell in Killarney for 10 pence.
With the ten pence they would buy
meal. Tbe donkey that drew their
little cart was worth $4.
'Talking about quick work,' said the
artist, 'I painted a complete landscape
scene in three days recently.'
'That's nothing,' replies tbe scrape
'Nothing ? I'd like to see an artist
who can beat it'
'I have beaten it. I painted a com
plete town in one night.'
