Yes, I'am going to burn It. Her picture,
hlch, held In a dainty gilt frame,
Has been on my mantel a llxturu,
(iocs under It, into thu llitne,
And one l ist farewell look, I nm taking;
It ever I loved her, 'tis o'er,
And jet, at my heart Is an aching,
To think I shall see this no more.
In this picture, how well I behold her,
Her bright eyes and pretty, sweet face,
Her white arm and one dlmrled shoulder
Half lost In a soft cloud ot lace;
The other plump shoulder Just glancing
Through rich chestnut tresses Is seen,
By Jove! 'tis a vision cntrauclngl
No wonder they call her "the queen,"
And all tho young fellows adoro her
And some not so oung, too, may be
And ho who his not Knelt before her
Is thought an eccentric, Ah, mcl
It really seems wicked and cruel,
To make ot tnls rare gem of art,
Tint once I sj prized, merely fuel
I turn the card o'er and my heart
Is ateeled. There Is written: "Thlno ever,
With love, Aramlnta." That llnu
Seals the doom of tho picture. It never
Must meet any eye, now but mine.
So hero goes tho plcturo with sorrow,
So ends ouo sweet dream of my lit J,
For I'am going to be married to-morrow;,
And that picture, 1' kept, uilght make strife.
THICKS UI'ON JEWELIiUS.
"Of all tho tricks, devieep, subteifu
ges, sliarj) doilgcs, or deceptiona I evtr
saw," said Jeweler Johnston to a re
porter, "was one liy which a sharp fel
low stole from mo three pairs of dia
mond earrings. lie evidently knew
when I was not in the store. He came
in one day and said to one of my clerks:
"'Is Mr. Johnston in?'
" 'Xo,' was the reply.
" 'I am sorry for that,' he said. 'I
wish to buy n pair of diamond earrings
for my wile.'
'This was repeated on four or live
successive days Tlio last time ho said
he would not wait to see mo, but would
look at some earrings. The clerk showed
him an assortment, and ho finally se
lected three pairs, valued at S 150, and
said : "I guess I will let my wife se
lect from these. She will bo at my store
in an hour, and I want you to tell Mr.
Johnston to bring tlieso aroutul lumsolt,
ns he is acquainted witli my wife."
4 'AH right, sir ; 1 will, replied tlio
"Iy tho way,' said the fellow, "if you
will permit me, 1 will write a note to
' 'Certainly,' said the clerk, who
showed lii tn to a desk and pointed out
where lie could get paper and envelopes.
lie sat down, wrote a short note, tolderi
it and put it in an envelope and directed
it to me. Then ho went back to the
counter and said to the clerk ; 'I think
you had better put tho three pairs of
earrings in here and 1 will Beal them up
so that Mr. Johnston will bo certain to
bring the right ones.'
'Very well, said tho tlerk, who
handed out the three pairs of earrings
and the fellow dropped them into the
envelope before the clerk's eyes, and was
apparently about to seal the envelope
when he saiu suddenly :
" 'uti, 1 guess you may put in that
other pair,' )ointing to a pair which tho
clerk had laid on the shelf behind him.
The clerk turned and got tho other pair
ami handed tuem to tlio lellow, who
Implied them apparently into tho name
envelope, sealed them up, handed them
over and said : 'Let Mr. Johnston brine
tlio four pairs to my storo as soon as ho
comes back,' giving the address of a
well-knoA'ii store in the vicinity. Then
he left, and the clerk laid tho envelope
on ono side until 1 returned. Of course
we found but one pair of diamond car
tings in the envelope, which was tho last
pair dropped in. The oilier three pairs
were paste, about tho same si.o. Tho
fellow had taken two of my envelopes,
and into ono had placed tho three bogus
pairs, When tho elcik turned to get
tho fourth pair, the fellow had put tho
genuino in his pocket and substituted tho
others. Vo never saw him afterwards.
but heard that ho had practiced tlio same
game in other places
"t)l course the imperative- rule is to
not let goods go out of your sierht until
you get the money. The trick of having
goods sent to hotels nnd boarding houses
with bills tor collection is so stale that
int iiiiiievmiing rule is to keep your
goods in sight, lint a shrewd fellow
once managed to get thrco watches from
me by a eiecr dodge. A blight, sharp
looking customer eatno in one day anil
said : "1 am from Ohio, and lmvo a com
mission to buy somo goods for my sister,
who is to bo married there.' lie picked
out a uui ot iyoiitj win in ot various arti
cle.s and said : 'Just send them around
to my store in Hioadway at 2 oclock,'
naming a well-known carpet storo in
Itroadway, Tho goods were sent by a
clerk, who iouihi the customer apparent
ly engaged in showing carpels, and per
fectly at home. Mo recognized tho
clerk and said:
" 'Ah I just step this way, and I will
givo you a cheek. I lu went with tho
oleik to a dek, diew a cheek, and took
tho goods. He appealed to bo so per-
lectly at homo that the clerk had not
tho slight est suspicion. Of course the
cheek was worthless, and wo found that
ho had secured tho desk piivilego at tho
carpet store by pretending that ho was
buying a largo stock of cai pots among
other purchases in tho city. Ho fooled
live jewel .is in New York, nndi.thors in
other citl 's.
"Ono day a sinnr", foreigi Jlooking,
well-dressed young man called on a
brother jeweler and handed him his
card 'Alexander Dninns, Prussian I.o
gation, Washington.' He said he was
with his wife and child at the St. Nicho
las Hotel, and wanted to buy some
watches and jewelry,for which ho would
pay cash. Ho said his wife was too
sick to leave the hotel, and wanted tne
goods sent with the bill. The jeweler
thought ho would mako a sure thing ot
it and take the jewels himself. He went
to tho at. Nicholas, was told lhat Mr.
Dumas was stopping there, and was
busy writing, but welcomed the jeweler
'"AH, ho said, '1 am glatl you navo
come. J am sorry that my wile is con
fined to her bed. I will just step into
tho next room antl let her make her
"The jeweler, in a moment of weak
ness, consented. Alter waiting live
minutes he began to get nervous. Ho
did not like to disturb a sick lady, but
went to the oflico to mako somo inqui
ries, 'there he iouiid that my. uinnas
had iust stepped oul.uud had no wife or
child iu the house. He was finally
caught, after ho had plavcd the same
game on a number of jewelers, and
lodged iu biug bing. When he was
cap tmcd ho trieil to conciliate his last
victim by tho presentation of a beautiful
overcoat. Hut the overcoat proved to
have been stolen.
"Iu showing jewelry it is the custom
to show only six watches at once, or
some uniform number. If the customer
wants to see another, one of those al
ready on exhibition will bo taken away.
Tho same rule is observed with rings.
Tho tray is always full, or with a known
number of holes'empty, so that if a ring
were taken the loss would bo instantly
detected. Sometimes swindlers will
watch an opportunity and slip in a
worthless ring and take away a good
one. One jeweler of my acquaintance
found live plated rings thus substituted
for plain gold rings in one day. The
trick was played upon a number of
jewelers about" the same time, and then
the roguo was captured.
"A common trick in buying goods on
the instalment plan is to give a wrong
name, mentioning the name of some
solvent person. The reference will, of
course, give a good repot t, and it will
not bo discovered until too late that the
good character does not belong to the
one who purchased tho goods."
Ono of tho shrewdest and boldest
tricks ever played on a jeweler was done
by a woman of nerve in Cincinnati not
long ago. One day a middle-aged wo
man, of lino personal appearance, well
dressed, and of most attractive manners,
called at a private lunatic asylum, and
asked to seo the superintendent. That
official met her in the parlor.
"I wish to make arrangements for the
confinement of a patient here," she snid.
"What are your terms and the conditions
on which you receive your patients t"
' Our terms aro $L" per week, and
you must have tho certificate of two
"Very well," said tho lady, "I will
pay you for two weeks in advance The
patient is my son, who is insane on the
subject of diamonds. He has a mania
for selling my jewelry. I have not yet
gotten the certificate of the physicians,
but can easily do so. I will bring my
son here in the afternoon, and if you
will keej) him an hour I will bring the
physicians with tho authority."
Thou tho lady entered her carriage
aud drove to a jewelry store. Theresho
selected SOOU worth of jewelry, which
she said was intended for tho trousseau
of her daughter, about to be married.
She gave tho name of a wealthy family
recently arrived in Cincinnati, aud said
to tho proprietor: "If you will let one
your clerks step into tho carriage with of
mo, I will go to my husband's storo and
give turn tho money tor tho goods.
Tho proprietor consented, and the
clerk, with the goods iu a box, entered
tho carriage with the lady, who said she
wished to stop on tho way and show her
purchases to a friend. Thoy drove to
the asylum and were shown to tho par
lor. The superintendent entered, and
the lady said quite calmly to the ekrk :
"Just open the box and show tho Hum's
to this gentleman."
The clerk unsuspectingly complied.
Carelessly drawing near, tho lady sud
denly seized tho box, and was walkim:
out of tho room with it when the aston-
tonished clerk cried ;
"Hold on.madatue.I must not let those
goods go out of my sight until I get the
Tlio lady did not deign to notice the
clerk, but, turning to the superintendent
of the asylum, said :
"llus is tho young man I spoke to
ou about. lie is getting a little violent,
'ou had better secure him."
It was in vain that tho clerk protested
that a robbery was being committed.
Tho superintendent was inexorable. He
called his assistants and secured the
clerk, while tho ladv walked to her car
riago with 81000 worth of jewelry.

Thero wns Ninus for instance. Ho was
tho son of Nimiod, the old hunter, who
mndo lions scratch for holes and tigers

about XI 110,000,000 in cash, besides IL'O,
000 cattle, a piece of land about as big
as Arkansas and 1 1,000 likely slaves.
There were no lawyers in those days who
tnado a specially of breaking wills, and
young Nicustook possession and cast
about for some plan to keep himself out
of the poor house.
Ho was considered a poor young man,
and had he been seen lugging his girl
to an ice cream saloon or ruling out in a
lively rig his friends would have said he
would bring up iu a garret. Uya lucky
ciptiiie of territory from the Assyrian,
together with 20,000 slaves, ia."i,U00

walked up the social ladder until hig

ho could lose three games of billiards
without wondering if the owner of tho
saloon would take a "stand off." He
was worth iX0,O0O,O0O when he died,

ho went without mutton because the
price had raised to three cents per pound.

She not only had the lucre left by Ni

it fourfold. Just multiply uY(),000,000
by two, and you have the amount of her
bank balance, to say nothing of jewels
and clothing and furniture and pilaces
and slave.? and cattle. Hail sho sold out
and cleared up she could have drawn her
little cheek for about 700,000,01)0. Sho
didn't worry about where her spring
bonnet was to como from, and when a
now style of dress goods came out, she
didn't sit up At nights for fear some
neighbor would secure a pattern first.
While she made it lively for her enemies
she was soft on her friends. Sho gave
her waiting maid ,)0i),000 in a lump for
dressing her hair in a new style, ami she
tossed the same amount to her dress
maker as a roward for the excellent lit
fit of one particular dress. Ono day
when she saw a poor old man traveling
tho highway on foot she presented him
with .')00 asses to ride on, and insisted on
his accepting .")0,000 to pay his loll and
Cyrus, king of Persia, from the year
.)38 to ,")S0, had some little change to
begin with, and in ten years he could

when a man came to buy but presented
him with 1,000. lie at ono time owned
30,000 horses, 40,000 cattle, I'OO.OOO
sheep and l.',000 asses and i'.'i.OOO
slaves, and when ho got tired of a palace
costing 1,000.000 he gavo it aA'ay to
some poor washerwoman with seven
children to support. Ho one day sat
down to a dinner which had cost 30,

King Menes was another well heeled

animal loaded with one handled pounds
of gold coin. lie paid 100,000 for a
bird that could whistle, tlio same lor a

for white oxen that he shelled out ITjO,

Now Doiiieitlc .Motor.
There has boon within tho past fow
j earn it demand for small motors both
for the shop and the house. A largo
number of domestic motors hayc been
biought out, but tho greater part have
apparently failed of general approval.
Steam, air and gas ('iiginea of small size
and low price aro readily found, but, for
domestic use, tho fact that all require
moro or loss skill iu using them seems to
irevent their general introduction. There
is also at least ono good water motor
suitable for light woik ill the hoil!c.
This is n simple overshot wheel, driven
by a small stream of water from any
house service where thero is a moderate
pressure or head of water. Tho wheel
is hung vertically, and is enclosed in a
casing supported by iron legs. A new
form of water motor recently introduced
suspends tho wheel in thoformof a thin
metallic disk, at tho end of a vertical,
shaft. L'rom two to four streams may
be directed against the cup-shaped vanes
on the wheel, and, as tho wheel is sus
ponded freely, tho waste wa'er has plen
ty of loom to cscaijo below. The wheel
is inclosed in a casing having a dishing
shape bolow, with the outlet for the
water iu the middle, to prevent clogging
or stopping of the wheel by excess of
waste water. The motor is designed to
bo screwed directly to tho faucet, and to
dislnrgo the waste water into the sink,
or by a pipe into the house drain. The
motor is made in several sizes, from a
small machine of one sixteenth horse
power, which can be carried easily in
the hand, up to ono horse power ma
chines. It may bo remarked, in connection
with this' motor, that there is also a now
steam motor connected on the same plan.
A small jet of steam is thrown against
the vanes of a wheel inclosed in a me
tallic casing. While this motor is the
oretically wasteful of tho steam, it has tho
advantage of great simplicity and entire
safety. No special care is needed to run
it, aud these things may outweigh the
wasto of power that mint follow from
tho tir ot steam in this manner. The
A Singular Oliost .Story.
Previous to November 7, 1800, I
always laughed at the bare idea of ghosts.
I was staying in lirighton ou the day
mentioned, with some friends who were
about to proceed abroad. Two ladies, a
cousin, and myself went out to dine at
Komptown. It being a most charming
moonlight night I told my friends I
should prefer walking home to Iiruns
wick square (the other end of the town).
I accordingly proceeded on the seaside
of the Esplanade. When just opposite
the Hertford hotel a carriage anil girl
drew up along side the rails with two
men on the box and an elderly lady in
side. I was greatly startled, as the wheels
made no noise ; but at once I took about
half a dozen steps towatd the carriage to
see what it meant, when I distinctly rec
ognized the occupant as my giandmothor,
whom I had left perfectly well at Chel
tenham a few days before ; also her
coachman and footman on the box. I at
once vaulted over tho rails opposite tho
carriage. At the same moment it struck
mo as most out of the way that an old
lady of y; should brin all her belong
ings fiom Cheltenham to Hrighton
without informing her relations of the
move. As I touched the ground I made
one step forward to greet her, when to
my horror the whole thing vanished.
When I recovered myself I went
straight home and told tho whole cir
cumstances oi the case. Ut course.overy
one laughed at uw, and told mo that I
was fortunate there were witnesses who
could speak to inv perfect sobriety. I
was very put out, and hardly slept all
night. Early next morning we received
a telegram that my poor old grandmoth

himself. Ho had been engaged, while

man resident in the ISasii island, ft was

a siedgo and started for his destination,

about halt way across, jumped down
from his perch, nnd.letting fall the reins,
turned toward his faro with menacing
gestures. A moment's hesitation would,
in all likelehood, would have cost Auriol
his life ; but ho proved equal to tho
emergency. Throwing off his furs, and
revealing'himsolf to his would-be assail
ant in the motley garb of his profession,
he sprang out of the sledge and proceed
ed t execute somo oi his most anuzmg

found, stiff and stark, lying face t own
