THE "WILD MLN.”

Marktwain has ien" in iewinr
the cerebrated " Man,” and con
tributes the'srest4o; of 'his talk with the
monstrosity to, Buffalo Expreis ...
There has been so much talk about the
mysterious " wild man" out there in the
West for some time,
that I finally felt that
it was my duty to go out and "inter
view" him. There was something pecu
liarly and touchingly romantic about the
creature and his strange actions, accord
ing to the newspaper reports. He was
represented as being hairy, long-armed,
and of great strength and stature ; ugly
and cumbrous; avoiding men, but ap
pearing suddenly and unexpectedly to
women and children ; going armed with
but never molesting any creature,
except sheep or other prey ; fond of eating
and Orinking, and not particular about
the quality, quantity, or character of the
beverages and edibles ; living in the woods
like a wild beast ; seeming oppressed and
melancholy, but never angry ; moaning,
and sometimes howling, but never utter
ing articulate sounds. Such was "Old
sheer as the papers painted him. I felt
that the story of his life must be a sad one
—a story of suffering, disappointment,
exile—a story of man's inhumanity to
man in some shape or other—And I long
ed to persuade the secret from him.
* * * * *
"Since you say you are a member of
the press," said the wild man, " I am
willing to tell you all you wish to know.
By-and-by you will comprehend why it, is
that I am so ready to unbosom myself to
a newspaper mau when I have so studi
ously avoided conversation with other
people. I will now unfold my strange
story. I was born with the world we
live upon, almost. lam the son of Cain."

a melancholy smile, and resumed :

landmark that is familiar to my memory.
And oh, the leagues I have travelled ! the

I was in London when the Gunpowder
Plot was discovered. I was present at
the trial of Warren Hastings. I was on
American soil when Lexington was fought
—when the Declaration was promulgated
—when Cornwallis surrendered—when
Washington died. I entered Paris with
Napoleon after Elba. I was present when
you mounted your guns and manned your
fleets for your War of 1812—when the
South fired upon Sumpter—when Rich
mond fell—when the President's life was
taken. In all the ages, I have helped to
celebrate the triumphs of genius, the
achievements of arms, the havoc of storm,
fire, pestilence, and famine.
" Your career has been a stirring one.
Might I ask how you came to locate in

hairy hand across his eyes), "but in these
degenerate days I am become the slave of
quack doctors and newspapers. I am

behest of some driving journal. I attend

and all to gratify the whim of a bedla
of crazy newspaper scribblers! From one
end of this continent to the other,l am
described as a gorilla, with a sort of uman

quill-driving scum of the earth!"

"I have been served infamously, often,
in modern and semi-modern times. I
have been compelled by base men to cre

sorts of impossible humbugs. I wrote
those crazy Junius Letters; I moped in a
French dungeon for fifteen years, an

your vagabond Indians, a solemn French
idiot, personating the ghost of a dead
Dauphin, that the gaping world might
wonder if we had a 'Bourbon among us;'
I have played sea-serpent off Nahant, and
Woolly-Horse and What-is-It for the
museum; I have 'interviewed' politicians
for the San, worked all manner of mira

In a moment the Wild Man's features
began to soften and refine, and his form
to assume a more human grace and sym

he shouldered it and walked away, sigh
ing profoundly and shedding tears.
"Whither, poor shade?"
"To dig up the Byron family!"
Such was the response that floated back
upon the wind as the sad spirit shook its
ringlets to the breeze, flourished its shovel
aloft, and disappeared over the brow of

Chicago has a grain " Ring" similar to
the gold " Ring" of New York, with the
difference, however, that the " bears" con
trol it, keeping the price of grain down
until they have monopolized the entire
crop, and storing it away in their city
until their grasp over the present year's
yield is complete. They are shipping none
whatever to the East, to the great detri
ment of business interests everywhere.
In a year of so bountiful a harvest as that
of the present one, it is grain and not
gold that must regulate finance and set
going the wheels of trade. The West is
always debtor to the East at this season,
and it is a well understood principle that
the produce of the former must pay here
and in Europe for the products and im
portations of the latter. But while the
produce, the great wheat and corn crops
of the West, are unshipped and stored
away in Chicago and St. Louis granaries,
Wall street and Third street are the suf
ferers, and from these great money centres
the whole East suffers in sympathy.
CAT-EoonrcAL.—An unfledged poet,
whose talent only needs to be known to be
appreciated, has been favored with a fe
line serenade, and thus gives vent to his
feelings on the occasion :—"lf a cat doth
meet a cat, upon the garden wall, and if a
cat doth greet a cat, oh I need they both
to squall? Every Tommy has his Tabby,
waiting on the wall, and yet she welcomes
his approach with one unearthly yall. If
a kit wish to court a rock upon the wall,
why don't he sit and sweetly smile, and
not stand up and bawl; and lift his precious
back up high, and show his teeth and
moan, as if 'twere colic, more than love,
that nade the feline groan. Among the
train there is a swain ;
hie voice is known
full well ; but what's his name, or where's
his thame,' the deuce alone can tell. He
is sweet upon the other sex; and so, with
groans and horrid threats, he rends the
evening air, and makes these midnight
'rendezvous' impossible to bear."
