It ww.our old friend, tho aliowman
tho only survivor of A. Ward, Esq ,
truthful an tho needle to tho pole,
writes a New York Graphic man. IIo
is a oncer dock, ia thin friend of ohm
the old ehowinan, with a raro eyo for.
neeiog mo curious ana me unique, with
a strong fancy, with a cosmopolitan
instinct and with a nemo of tho charm
of successful humbuggery. IIo be'dewa
with tho idol of tho show world tho
venerable sago of Bridgeport that tho
publio likes to be humbucccd. A
good square, snnp aidoishovr attracts,
him as a drop of sngar attracts flics.
He is nevor so happy as when with his
shiny tall hat on the back of bid head,
and with his keen eyes dancing in tho
cxc'itemont of tho hour, he is aloft on
tho box of tho sido show in front of
tho circle of pictures of tho Circassian
woman, and tho fat woman and tho
line of freaks, orating to a crowd of be
lievers on tho wonders of his show in
side tho canvas.
"The show man," quoth he, "rises
early and retires Into. I know him. 1
know all about him. IIo puts' all his
nerve, strength, vigor and brains into
tho business. The show man is usually
a show man because bo couldn't be
any thing else if ho had overy oppbr-
tunny in tue woria. no a ratner be a
showman and have to go to bed while
his only shirt was beiuc washod than

"Well, sir, smco I'm talking on the"
fako, did you know that tbe finest, ar
tist in the world in the manuf xture of
freaks and curiosities is an Alaskan?
It s a fact. I was surprised myself.
lor I always supposed that ho would be
a Yankee He was away when we
called, but his assistant was there.-
Thoy were making Egyptian Wnmmies
that day, a lull line of toot i for a ma
seum in Fans. They avo made of
filaster of Paris' and bollod in tobacco
nice, and they are stunners when they
arc done. It is a curious yarn how the
reporters got on to nig place.' He oc
copies a place'imder tbe roof and dries
his curiosities oh1 the fiat roof in the
sun. The elevated railroad pushes
along over tho city here, and, some
travolers by the morning train saw a
curious sight on' on one of tho roofs.
It looked like a collection of dead bod
ies drying in tho sun, and a conglom
eration of hideous monstrosities and
blood-curdling freaks of nature. Of
course somebody investigated it, and as
a result tbe birth plaou of the freak
"I wish I could givo you that Alas
kan s name, but1 1 can't. It's a stunner
in length, and he is an nrtist of as dis
tinguished talents as his name is long.
He made the man-ox that struck the
professors of anatomy everywhere. He
drew the skin over tho ribs so adroitly
that there seemed to be absolutely no
fault in it, and it puzzled the scientists
as well as the common people. There
are two or three other freak makers in
the Bowery that we called on, but
there aro no o here that approach this
fellow. He ia a jim-dandy, and no
mistake, a mermaid is nothing at all
for hint He can draw a chicken's skin
over the skeleton as handily as you
uiw uu juur giuvv, aim no man can
swear that it is artificial."
"Are none of these freaks-genuinef
"Mighty few that I know anything
about are very genuine. Most of lh&
man-ox, man-horse, mermaid, sea ser
pent, Egyptian mummv, royal anato'ml
cal marine museum tluff is inanfactar
ed. Of course, there are some freaks
of nature in the way of monstrosities
that aro genuine The India rubber
man is a freak of nature, and I was in
to see tbe centaur of a man-borso at
tbt dimo museum. That's genuine if
you like it- It's a coon with his legs
twisted out oi snapo. The poor cuss
was marked in birth and' can't walk
npright a dead give-away of a fake

"Do you remember that sea serpent
that we exhibited a year or two ago!
It was twenty or thirty feet long, and
was tbe the queerest looking thing I
ever saw. It had big chunks of bone
on tbe side of it, and had a mouth (big
enough to take in a long boat Well,
this Alaskan made that How did! he

job. Ho made a Bea serpent latoly,
and I rac across it at Exeter. One of
the professors at Phillips' Acaktmy
went in and looked it over, Ho said
he had doubts about its being Leonine.
"Hal Ha! Well I don't blaino him.
I had my doubts, too, bnV they were
based on a different foundation, the
difference between theory and ftfet,
you sec. Tho owner of tho show had
a mighty good lecture to go with his
museum. Ho bad one or two mer
maids, and one of them be considered
a particularly valuable specimen. He
noyor Jailed in tho course of his ad
dress to relate that this was positively
uiu uuiy niermuiu ever captured alive.
He said that she seemed to mourn for
her homo at the bottom of the sea. and
to' continually utter plaintive cries fcnd
sing in a mournful, heart-breaking
koy. Tbev fed her everv ihinrr in ha
line of fresh fiob, but she pined away
and died and thus ended the existence

"Tho doctor bad a bang-up show on

gorgeous and true to fact In front of
his mermaid ho had a largo patch of
green grass and the green waves turl
"One day an old chap, with bis
town meeting hat on tho crown of his
head clear to his ears, came up and
looked at tho mermaid as she fluttered
in canvas truo to tho pioturo of ber
home beneath the wave
"As be gazed at her in rapt sufiponse
and noticed that she was the only
specimen ever captured alive; ho look

Hk Paid, Attention to Ilia Oivn
VIB.t "General Sheridan," says
the Pittsburg Ditpatch, was not so
popular as was Ueneral Sherman, with
the ladies. He waa fonder of staying
at homo 'ban of gojngabont in society.'
iie took more pleasure in paying at
tention to-his own wife than to other
men s wivts."
His Fkrsomai, Appearance. Tliore
was no better known figuro about tho
National Capital than "Littlo Phil."
He -rarely wore his uniform, and a'raoro
nnmilitary looking man nover lived in
citizen's dress. Sheridan was very
shdrt and each' year seemed to add to
tho rotundity ot his pudgy figure.
"When I saw bini in tho lobby," says
a-Washington writer, "ho wore upon
tho, back of his round bullet head a
very slim, high, old-fashioned silk hat
of a stylo that was very popular about
the timo of tho close of the war. It
was about two sizes too small. Hh
short, iron-gray hair stood out from
under tho rim of his hat at nearly right
angles with it. His red, weather-beaten
faco did not show any new lines of
advancing age, but the grizzly, iron
gray muatach'o and imperial were
whitening very last, lie wore a abort,
licM, yellow-gray overcoat which had
only two buttons and thoy woro nearly
ready to fly off fromthe undue strain of
Sheridan's ronnd Cguro. Tho coat like
tho bat, appeared to have been long out
grown. The trousers wero a gray-plaid
and fitted very snugly1 to the General's
fat legs. His boots wero thiok-soled
and un-blaoked. He wore no cloves.''
Pugnacious From Boyhood. An
Ohioari who was familiar with Sheri
dan's boyhood and parentage spoke to
a Boston Globe reporter on Sunday
night as follows:
"He came from as good stock as
ever came over in the steerage. Phil
was a little bit of a fellow, but I guess
he whipped cviSry fighting lad of Som
erset, tie oecamo in early lite a
most daring horseback rider. His first
experience as a cavalryman waa on the
back of an ugly beast without a strap
about him. The brute Btarted to run
at a terrible pace and did not stop until
he reached a tavern ten miles distant
There ho ran into a stablo shed. Phil
bung on like' an Indian and did not
seem to be in the least frightened.
When asked bow be had managed to
stiok his reply was characteristic: 'I'd
been told how to do it, I iust hag-
ped his neck and' stuck my knees in his
siae. jMODoay naaever oeiore buo-
oeeded in riding the beast.
Baitt.e-Field Propanitv. "Mnoh
of Sheridan's reputation asa profanity
expert," said a writer in the Boston
Herald of yesterday, "may be attri
buted to Buobanan Read's poem des
cribing Sheridan's famous ride from
Winchester to Cedar Creek. Sheri
dan, according to Head, rode down the
line with a terrible path, whioh was
so- soul-inspiring as to bring back the
demoralized and' scattered soldiers to
their senses,, and instill them with new
courage. Sheridan was accompapied
on that ride by two staff officers, Bri.
gadier-General Georce A. Forsvthe
and Col. O'Keef. This is what Sheri
dan said according to General Forsy
the, when he rode up and met his sol
diers fleeing'frora tho enemv: 'Bovs.
those of you who are not cowards fol
low mo, for I'll sleep-in camp to-night
or I'll sleep in hell!" The effect of
these words, General Forsythe says,
was magical. The bovs turned 'with a
