You will find that not ono is missing.''
Notwithstanding numerous traditions
of concealed wealth, but little lias actu
ally been discovered. Buried gold is
occasionally found, howovcr not in
mounds and mountain caves, but in the
rains of old houses, whore former own

Not many years since a very poor
old woman rented a house as old aud

Its inner court was paved with broken
stones, which she was torevcr sweep,

An Interview with ii Wfill-llrtstiid Toung
lleggar An Kxplnnntlon nf Ills Method
and Success The Various Kinds ol
llcfcgnrt In New York.
A young mnn, who did not look as
though he had Rpent over n quarter ot n
century In this suffering world, turned out
of Tenth street n few evenings since and
BRtintcred down Hrondwny, Ills light
overcoat covered n shapely form, which
was crowned with a derby lint of recent
stylo. A pair of eyeglasses bridged his
'nose, nud tho cord tlmt connected them
with tho buttonhole of his coat was of
black Bilk nnd the loop It made was graco
fill. One hand was hidden In a neat driv
ing glove nnd from tho other hand hs
dangled Its mate. Altogether his appear
nnco was that of a natty young man Just
returning homo from n Into call, for It
was midnight. All thli was nollcod by n
tired-out reporter, who was overcome
with surprise when this exceedingly flno
young mnn stepped up with! "Would you
kindly assist me, sir, with a few pennies
that I may get a lodging for the nlghtr"
"Whatf" gasped the almost dumb
struck reporter.
"I tun entirely out ot funds. I have met
misfortune," suavely responded tho young
Without attempting a word, the person
addressed pulled out a 10-ccnt piece.
When tho movement toward tho pocket
was made, tho young mnn In wnnt light
pned his volco of tho Btrcss of care and
feeling that pervaded it at first. "I only
came over from Kngland n month ago,"
he volunteered, nnd am unable to Und
work. I nm a machinist by trade. I have
had no food slnco last night."
This latter observation was added whon
the silent transfer of tho coin was made
nnd Its denomination beenmo manifest in
tho bright rays of nn adjacent electric
light, lie hesitated a moment. Then ho
touched his hat with a "Thank you" In a
most polito fashion and quickened his
pace down Broadway.
Tho loser by tho transaction stood for a
moment hesitating, then started in pur
suit of tho high-toned beggar. Tho latter
did not oven turn around, nnd as his pur
suer drew near wafted forth a contented
whistle. He finally enmo to a brilliantly
lighted saloon, into which he dodged with
tho familiarity ot nn old rounder. His
follower caught him just in the act of
tossing off a sherry flip, for which lie had
thrown down a 60-cent piece inpayment.
His check did not pale when he saw the
reporter before him. Indeed he nodded
his head In a sort of a greeting.
The young man was led to an adjoining
table, and after a little persuading, told
his method of doing the streets. "Since
you have fairly orncred me, I will tell
you about tho business. I was once a
hard-working young man, but owing to
circumstances I was thrown out of busi
ness and compelled to llnd sustenance as
as best I could. I have a few decent rags
left," and he glanced afTectionately nt tho
neat top-coat and nudged with his chin
tho rather naming necktie that encircled
nn upright collar. "I had to get money
somehow, und 1 took tho method you
have observed. I joined tho ranks ot the
dude beggars. Inm not nshamed of the
term. A beggar Is a beggar.
"Yes, there uro others like me. You
have not happened to meet them, that is
nil. Indeed, a little more and you would
not havo me, as I go to Washington to
morrow. Congress is iu session, you
know, nnd It is really about the best time
to visit the capital.
"Tho success of my method you nto not
the only ono who has been kind to me to
night" and tho speaker proved the asser
tion without remark by giving his pocket
ful of coins a slap "the success ot my
method is owing to the a-stonishmeut which
niTects those to whom I make my appeals.
My appearance does not imply want or
starvation, and when 1 tell my story the
listener immediately concludes, as soon as
he recovers himself, that I am telling the
strict truth and have.been caught without
means. He goes awuy after making his
donation feeling extremely well satisfied,
and that he has nt last lilt upon u. case de
serving of true charity.
"Then, too, I nm enreful about my ap
peals. I do not couch them in pitiable
language, but In keeping with my dress;
they are dignified, straightforward stories
of my trouble and reasons for asking pe
cuniary fuvors. They take as n rulo. If I
had been dressed in rags and with sunken
cheeks und hoarse voice addressed you,
you would havo shaken me oil and passed
on commenting to yourself on tho una
voidable, nuisances of the streets."
The young man then nrose, gave his
mujtnche a twist, and with a bow ut the
. head left the saloon. It Is hoped to continue
his journey to Washington.
There are all kinds of beggers in New
York, and while few with the original
ideas and Immeasurable cheek of the
species represented above, yet plenty re
main of u more groveling nature and com
mon methods. The letter writers aro a
class that numbered a much larger client
age than was supposed till the Charity
Organization society's systematic raid on
beggars was made. The letter writers ore
genteel. They remain at home, and from
a convenient desk, before perhaps an open
fireplace, indite the most heartrending
epistles of want nnd Buffering. The busy
merchant's heart is touched, and, without
time to Investigate, ho Incloses a bill and
awuy goes tho letter. It is singular how
much money goes without any effort be
ing made to ascertain It the beneficiary is
worthy, There aro mauy female letter
writers, nnd of course theifeminlue chl
rogrnpliy adds to the pitiable tale of woe.
The only safe way to treat beggars is to
give nothing, and if they are young send
them around to the Young Men's Chris
tian Association lodgings on the Bowery
or other charitable institutions. You
need not be afraid of overcrowding the
institutions. They won't go. Ladies do a
great deal of harm in so generously drop
plug their small change in the beggar's
box, and so tho trado Is kept up. A pre
mium Is put on tho worst-looking beggar,
and the old woman borrows some other
woman's buby to make a show on the
Another claSs of mendicants Is the per
manent beggars, who aro found lu the
same places week after week aud month
after month. They are mostly blfnd or
apparently so, or are iu some mannur crip
pled, with u small musical box or dimin
utive organ. Summer evenings are
whlled awuy, and the little tin cups re
sound often with pennies and nickels that
are dropped lu, Homo of them are poor
and use their earnings to live upon, but
nthers are frauds. Now Yorkltlmea.

In opening a discussion on this subject,
Dr. C. I.. Dana said that he hod found the
Information contained In the text-books
upon insomnia in the aged was very
Blight In amount. Insomnia was not fre
quent in tho aged, but when it was present
It was sometimes very intractable. Patho
logists thought It wus due to auu.-mla nnd
mulnutritlon. Tho thickened arterial
walls und tho high arterial tension from
the contracted kidneys, and similar states,
which were fouul In tho aged, would indi
cate that the blood supply to the bruin was
deficient. Tho insomnia produced by
ana'iulu wns characterized by drowsiness
during the daytime, the patient falling
Into little naps, while at night he was un
able to obtain any rest. This was true of
the young us well as tho old. If In any case
we found no uetiuil disease, it was cus
tomary to try Irou and rich diet. In tho
BpeHker's experience, howover, Iron did
tiot relievo luucmla of tlijj aged so as to
produce sleep. Alcohol with the food was
another remedy, aud many recommended
hot gruel or hot milk with alcohol before
going to bed. While alcohol would relieve
some cases, thero were others In which tho
Insomnia was Increased.
The bromides nnd clilornl, even when
given in enormous doses, often failed to
give relief. Opium was another remedy,
Dr. II, C. Wood had recommendod that
we make our aged people opium eaters and
alcohol drinkers. The speaker had not
found that opium always agreed with tho
aged, and in his experience, where opium
had produced sleep, it was Bometlmes fol
lowed by such physical and mental depres
sion as precluded Its further use.
He had been disappointed Iu bromide

opium sometimes disastrous. He recom

How Colnrod Folk Kxlat on tho .Sea-Girl
Inlo Near Charlevton, S. C,
It was communion Sunday, and the ma
Intto preacher delivered 11 sermon well
worth hearing, judging from tho last part
ot it. As soon as they wero outside, how.
ever, the laughing nnd chattering was inv
menso. Everybody laughed, everybody
shook hands and smiled and chattered,
with "How-ii, hmv-u, Miss Lucy; gwyno
'long ounn wnyr" "Not 'smornln', .Mr.
JelTnhs gwyno t'Sessionvllle way wid
Aunt I'olly." "Huw you uns long 0' dls
week, Uncle Keubenf" "So't o' poahly,
t'nnk you, Hen, but strlvln' step in nnd
see Aunt Tolly to night." "Try to, uncle.
God willln'," nnd so on, by tho hundred.
And as I walked on I could hear them for
u mile or nioro its they laughed in childish
glee. Hut I could understand their words,
which Is nioro than I can say for thoso on
the south sldo of thu island, whoso talk is
littlo nioro than 11 barbarous guttural.
The common life of the negroes Is inde
scribably rude und cheap. Not ono cabin
in ten has $5 wortli of furniture in it.
Every article lu many ot them could not
be forced to a salo iu Indiana. Iu soma
thero nre no bedding except a quilt for
each one, nnd with it a pile of cotton, rags,
or dried moss. Frequently thero uru no
dishes iu the house except gourds nnd the
cooking utensils. It is very rare tu seo a
book or paper. For chairs they generally
use u box picked up at thu nearest store.
Hut they have "Sunday clothes" the ex
ceptions nro very fow und maka their
best appearance on that day. The nbund
unco of llsh, oysters, nnd clams helps them
greatly, especially lu these hard times. Xo
whisky is sold on Jumcs' island. There is
uo school for whites, but the colored
schools uro fairly well conducted nnd run
three mouths; teachers' salaries '- per
month. Tho advances made by fnctors
on Inst year's crop are not yet repaid, as
the cyclono destroyed tho cotton; so ad
vances uro slow this spring. Even the
carts and mules nro mortgaged, and the
poverty of ordinary times is now Intensi
fied. Pearl grits cost the laborer
tl.40 per bushel, one bushel lasting a
man a month when ho uses no bread, us
ninny do not. A rather poor nrtielo ot
bacon Is retailed nt 7 cents. Groceries
retail ns with us; but the negro buys very
littlo now.
Only tlio better families ever use coITce.
Hutter ranks ns a luxury. Thu lank cows
which gruze on the salt marshes yield n
thin artlclo of milk six or seven quarts a
day iu the season; in tho coldest weather
they go dry, A stout woman can earn 41)
cents u day lu the Held, and n man GO.
There is very little hotuu llfo among the
colored. Their cabins nro generally so
small and uncomfortablo that tho family
is never in them except when It ruins or Is
extremely cold. The past winter wus the
coldest ever known 011 the islands, and
following the losses by cyclono caused
much suffering. In more than ona
family tho bread nnd bacon are now re
served for thoso only who work in tho
Held; the children nnd older people, the de
crepit and the idle, live on grits and the
products of the creeks, such ns oysters,
llsh, clams, and even muscles. One heurs
very little merriment on u working-day.
The people cheer up when they meet on
Sundny und chatter like a llock of purrots;
but the prevalent feeling seems to bo a sad
one. On the whole the experience of a
day and n half hero is rather depressing,
and I do not udmiro tho prospect of a Jour
ney from here to Ueautort. "1'arke's"

Tlio Diet Treutiiitiit or DUeuao.
Jlllner Fotherglll, ono of tlio most
charming nnd sensible of medical teach
ers, writes that tho advocacy ot dietetics
iu the treatment of disease Is tne absorb
ing toplo of the present time. To him, In
deed, It is tho great therapeutic matter of
thu day, and he feels In duty bound to lend
it what aid ho can. Of tho necessity of
some systematic teaching of dietetics in u
course of medical education no ono can en
tertain n doubt. It is surely ns desirable
that a medical man he tuught how to feed
a patient acutely 111 as how to prescribe
for him, If It bo u pyrexia, it is as desira
ble to maintain the strength and call as
little as jmsslblo upon the bodily reserves
as It is to keep down the body tempera
ture, To prevent exhaustion but' mat
ters must lecelvo attention. Every sick
person Is more or less dyspeptic, und dys
peptla requires appropriate nnd sultablo
food. Many dyspeptics cm nloue per
form their dally toll by a watchful atten
tion to their food and requirements, Chl
