ft D In Narrow and Crowded Ann Street,
Convenient to the Busy Part of the
Metropolis Something About a Class
of Men Who Ptuh Moreltle.
When you visit the fakirs' exchange anil
Mine to know it you will be able to noder
Itand at least ono circumstanoa that must
have struck you as being a trido queer.
Now, mauy person have at some time
Wslkrd from the city hall through Park
row and dowa Broadway im far u Wall
Street, and have noticed thnt the streets
were strangely oleiir of pe'ldlcra. Ooing
over thnt sums ground a couple of hours
later they have encountered a horde of
howling, hoarse voiced men and boya, their
fries arisiiiK far above the of the
Btreeta as they fairly assaulted the passers
by to compel them to bny the trinkets they
had for Kile.
If yon have noticed thi3you have per
haps wondered whence all these fiikirs have
so suddenly sprung. The key to this mys
tery is not hard to find ud is not a great
distance away. It is to be found at the
fakirs' exchange.
Just strike down Ann street from Park
row and halt at Theater alley, a short half
block away. You will sea nothing thore
that will remind you of the Produce ex
change or the Cotton exchange or the Real
Kftate exchauKe or anything of that sort.
You will seo on one side of Theater alley a
liquor store, on tho other another. The
yakira' exchange is right about there.
In the windows of one of these saloons is
a small crystal lake, in the center of that a
smaller island, and on that a bullfrog al
most as large as tho island. Ho is tho
tutelary Renins of the exchange. Wheu he
vras Hint put Into that aquarium he was a
brash sort of bullfrog. He started in to !
make things hum at once. In the same
place were several catllsh. If you have
ever attempted to toy in a careless manner
with a cattish you probably know that ho
has a very dcx ! led way of making himself
felt. This bullfrog ought to have known
this and perhaps he did, but as has been
said, he was brash. So he fooled with the
catllsh and they fooled with him.
Then one day he climbed on the island
before mentioned and began to wonder why
It was that catllsh were allowed in a civil
ized country to carry stilettos behind their
cant. That was two years ago, and the bull
frog has spent about all his time on that
Inland ever since. This biography of him
may seem irrelevant, but it isn't. The
numbers of the exchange treat him with
large consideration. They call him Robin
son Crusoe, and they claim that his powers
of hard and penostent thinking entitle
bim to respect. So if you want to get along
with them you will oast no reflection on
Crusoe, the frog.
The exchange is unique. There will be
days and days when it will be to all in
tents and purposes closed, when you will
see scarcely a member about. On thoso
days they are scattered all over the city in
every place where men and women congre
gate, selling with greater or less success
nuch wares as they have to offer. Then
you will see them drifting back to head
quarters, and on another day when you go
through Ann street you will find handcart
after handcart about Theater ulley and
men lounging about looking at Crusoe and
talking in groups. It is an exchange day.
It is not proper to class these men with
the small peddlers who sell shoestrings,
matches and the like. These are but work
ing on what is practically tho system of
the Italian padrones, albeit in this cose it
is worked by Hebrews. These peddlers in
Ann street ore usually either individual
merchants, so to speak, or members of a
combination, and in a general way with so
much unanimity of form that their head
quarters may really bo tenntd an exchange,
or at the very least a markets
Tbey have capital within certain limits,
and credit too. They will notdoal in things
that to their mind will not strike the pub
lic as either bargains or novelties. The
class of peddlers who deal in bargains buy
unfold stocks of magazines, books or il
lustrated papers, hats just gone out of nca
Nou, second hand articles that are easily
transferred by means of a handcart or with
the assistance of an ancient horse.
The dealers in novelties form the cream
of the exchange. They work on combina
tions. They watch every toy and novelty
manufacturing house in the business.
They have scheduled novelties that of
course change from year to year for every
holiday, whether it bo Christmas or Labor
Day. It was mainly through the efforts of
these men that tho "Fifteen Puzzle" be
came popular. When they beard, and
they did speedily, that the "Boulunger
March" was a good thing, it was but a day
or so wheu they were selling it by the tens
of thousands on the streets.
They watch every theatrical bit, every
Rnctt A of a public man, every great event,
and in fact study the public taste much
more clomly thun much greater men do.
Theynreiu touch with all the wholesale
houses in this city that deal with mechan
ical toys and novelties, and the managers
of these houses have no hesitation in say
ing that so fur us New York is concerned,
and that means a good deal, these street
fukirs arc rare good judges of what will go
and what will not.
i If you could sue nil the members of this
exchange at their headquarters you would
sco nn interesting throng. But that is
hardly possible.
They do not congregate at any specified
time. But if any new thing comes out
that is likely to sell ou the streets of New
York the manufacturer has but to let it be
known at Ann street nnd Theater alley. It
will be speedily tested, and if it is what it
is claimed to be by its inventor it will In
twenty-four hours bo on sali) in every im
portant point in New York, and a thousand
men and boys will bo shouting in its praise
ami selling it.
; For tills and other reasons the spot on
Ann street is unique, and for tho same rea
sons it may justly enough be called an ex
changeNew York Recorder.
Bpalu'e Mueh Toward Democracy.
When we oompare what onr Spain was
tudor the congress of 187(1 with what she
la today, the realisation of so much practi
cal progren and the harvest of so many
democratic ideas seem like a dream. Trials
were then held seoreUy, as lu Inquisitorial
times; justice now seeks the light, giving
greater security to the oitisen. We then
depended ou tribunals which themselves
were dependent upon the . government;
popular jury trials today give book to the
people the foremost of all sovereign at
tributesthe administration of justice.
Our party, called factious by the publlo
power, and as such persecuted, was then
declared Illegal; today Republican doc
trines con be preached in the light of day,
and will be aimed out, whou the nation
shall bold it fit, within the bounds of le
gality. Meetings then could be held only
through the tolerance of the government;
now we assemble because our right to do
to is acknowledged by the law.
The minister of the interior then had the
sole power of granting permits to publish
newspapers, and he subjected journals to
capricious suspensions and suppressions.
Today any Spanish citizen can found a
paper without making a deposit or giv
ing the name of the responsible editor; and
the excesses of the press are restrained by
ordinary penal legislation and punished
by publlo oooacknno and publlo opinion.
The only thing wanted to complete all this
marvelous evolution was to extend to all
the privilege of voting, formerly enjoyed
by a .feWj Universal suffrage, proraul-
gated In Jane, 1889, makes Spain a win
pleto democracy a free and parliamentary
democracy. Emilio Castelur in Forum.
Traveled by Hiaiaulf.
When D. P. Loveland, of northern Ver
mont, purchased a farm in Shelt.a a seri
ous problem presented itself to him. Ho
had a houseful of goods and some live
stock. To sell thorn meant a sacrilice to
bim, so be set bis Yankee ingenuity to
work to see bow be could move his stuff to
his new home without too heavy expense.
This is how be did it: He went to the sta
tion af eut and chartered the largest and
longest box oar to be had. Then he loaded
bis goods iulo it. These consisted of nil
his household goods, cue wagou, a plow
and honerake, 500 pounds of butler, ilfty
bushaU of potatoes, two barrels of buck
wheat, three horses, five cows, two pigs,
eleven sheep, sixty chickens uud throe
turkeys. By putting up partitions and
making a loft over the heads of tho cows
and horses for the smaller animals uud
ponltry, he got his live stock into less than
one-third of tho car.
Then ho began at the other end, and
packed in his household goods, taking his
wagon and horseruko apart for the sake of
compactness. These occupied nearly half
of the car. Then he slung a hummock
from the roof of tho car, put in a stove,
running the pipe out of tho door, nnd pro
pared to accompany tho goods himself.
Tho trip occupied live days, and during
that time Mr. Loveland occupied the car
with his effects, animate and inanimate,
and says ho enjoyed the trip. Ilis live
stock como out of their cramped quarters
iu good condition. Boston Transcript.

Hats both large nnd small uud small bon
nets are worn this season. They are, as a
rule, profusely trimmed, especially hats.
Straws are shown in greater variety than
for some years past and are often very beau
tiful. Not only is there the usual display
of plum and laco straws, with leghorn and
neupulitan braids, but a number of coarse
funcy straws and chipsure seen, picturesque
In Ehape and attractive in texture. All
shades of green, yellow, heliotrope and
brown may be found, while re.i, blue and
pure white ure also to be had. Coarse woven
straws come ulso in mixed colors, either
mude up or in piece braid, and are very ef
fective when trimmed with flowers and vel
vet. A great deal of green foliage is u?ed
with the flower sprays, nnd green blossoms !
are also favorites, tho mignonette being
particularly pretty. Lilacs are not so much !
used us they were last yeur, but roses and
violets retain their prestige. Sprays of
semldotible yellow chrysanthemums are
shown having large yellow middles, nnd
buttercups nnd dandelions also iigure
among the popular yellow flowers.
Much lace in black, white and ecru is
used. Sometimes it forms t he entire frame
of tho hut, sometimes it is mingled with
straw bruid for that purpose, and sometimes
it is used only in the trimming. Guipure,
spnngled net lace nnd the fine thread varie
ties are all employed, the latter to form
frilliiigsuroiuid the edge of the brim or full j
knife plaited rurblngs.
Jet and spangles are seen everywhere.
Jetted ostrich tips and qniils are used in I
prelerence to plain ones, and separate jet
crowns, brims nnd ornaments are for sale
in great numbers. Buckles have not yet
retired from fashionable favor and may be
found in gold, silver, steel, jewels and j'jt.
No birds arc seen ou the newest hats and
bonnets. A large number of black hatsare
worn, especially iu lace. They are elabo
rately made and triif.nied and are usually
enlivened by the tulditiou of a knot of car
mine, heliotrope or bright grceu Kdvet, or
a spray of latye red roses with leaves.

Lost Children In New York.
Three thousand children lo:o I hen, selves'
yearly in New York and aro found by tho
; pollco In nil parts of tho city and frequent
ly in ft locality so far from their homos
that thy enn glvo no idea of how they got
there, says The Sun.
When a policeman finds a child who Is
evidently lost, Im first tries to locatoits
homo In tho immediate nolf-liborhond, nml
failing lu that ho either en; vi's tho child
or leads It to tho station hovM. If tho
child Is found early In the day, it Is kept
in tho station throe or four hours, in tho
j liopo that the pnrenfs or relatives, alarmed
nt Its disappearance, will como to tho sta
tion houso in search of It. If no ono comes
for tho child, the policeman takes tho lit
tlo ono to polico headquarters, in Mulberry
street, and up to the top floor of the build
ing, whero Is what may bo called tho Now
York clearing houso for lost children.
Almost any night In tho Rummer four
or five poor women may bo seen sitting on
tho fitono stops of the headquarters build
ing, hoping and wait ing for their lost chil
dren to bo brought in.
Tho Observance of Memorial Day.
In 1868 tho Grand Army of the Republic
first began to observe Memorial Day in a
formal munner. The Bouth adopted tho
custom of decorating its soldiers' graves
with flowers before the civil war closed,
and the practice sproad to tho north just
after the war, but it did nqL, beconiu gen
eral nntil 181)3. At that timcvioneral Logan
was commander-in-chief of the G. A. R.,
and his orders for the observance of tho
dny by the different posts was Issued early
in May, the 80th of May being designated
for the ceremonies. It was first called
Decoration Day, but subsequently it be
came known as Memorial Day. St. Louis

Points for House Clranlne.
To avoid carpet moths: If you find no
appearance of moths in your carpets use
an "ounce of prevention." In other words,
after your carjKit has been lnid, spongo
thoroughly in a strong solution of salt and
water. It is well also to sprinkle salt un
derneath the carpet, hrdark corners, under
bookcases, couches, etc., where the carpet
Is least used. Above all, keep your rooms
sufliciently light, remembering that moths
should be numbered among those wicked
creatures who "preferdarkness rather thai,
light, because their deeds ure evil."
Rattan chairs which have grown dark
and discolored with use may be greatly im
proved by scrubbing with hot milk and
salt, and afterward exposing to the sun
and wind till dry.
in cleaning your pantry shelves use an
other "ounce of preve.uU.m.' Sprinkle a
mixture of powdered borax and iulveiiz"d
alum underneath the papers, and you won't
he likely to be troubled with aids.
A remedy highly recommended for tho
extermination of ruts and mice iscnrumeal
mixed with powdered glass. Spread the
mixture iu their favorite haunts; and it is
claimed they will tlee from the premises in
au incredibly short time.
Bad spots of oil or grease upon tho car
pet, which iail to yield 'to ordinary treat
ment, may often be removed with buck
wheat flour and water. .Make a Rtilf but
ter, spread upon the spots and nlluw it to
dry. Sometimes more than one application
will be necessary, but ordinarily when tl.e
Hour is swept oil' tho spots will disappear
willi it.
lirease spots upon wall paper may be re
moved with Fuller's earth. Make n thick
paste, spread carefully upon the spots, and
let it remain lor twelve hours. Brush it
oil, and if the spot has not cut disap
peared repeat the process. Sara Sedgwick

Prompt Jtoitii'O
In tho "History of Beverly," Mass., the
following anecdote is related of a good jus
tice of the peace in the old colonial times.
Ou u cold night iu winter a traveler called
at his house for lodging. '1'he ready hos
pitality of tin; justice was about being dis
played, when the traveler unluckily ut
tered a word which his host considered
Upon this he informed his guest that he
was a magistrate, pointed out the nature
of the ol't'ctise, and explained tho necessity
of its being expiated by sitting an hour in
the stocks.
Remonstrance was unavailing, for cus
tom ut that time allowed the mngistrato
to convict and puuUli at once, and iu this
caso he acted as accuser, witness, jury,
judge and sheriff, all in ono.
Cold as it was, our worthy justice, aided
by his 9ou, conducted the traveler to the
place of punishment, an open place near
the meeting house where the stocks were
placed. Here the traveler was rou lined in
the usual manner, the benevolent executor
of the law remaining with him to beguile
tho time of its tedium by edifying conver
sation. At the expiration of the hour he was re
conducted to the house and hospitably en
tertained till the next morning, when tho
traveler departed wit h, let us hope, a de
termination to consider his words more
carefully before giving them utterance in
the hearing of a conscientious magistrate.

rotting Decoy Ditelcs.
- It is said that all true sportsmen abhor a
pot hunter, and that no gentleman wiil pot
a duck. But they all do it. I have done it
myself. I have seen the best of them siieak-
Ingon to decoys, and have had tho pleasure
of protesting against some of the most
blatant taking a shot at mine. A short
time ago, in one of my rambles, I came
suddenly upon a line (loci; of mallards feed
ing in a little secluded pond near Columbia
slough. Fortunately I was not discovered,
and quietly drew back where 1 could study
the situation. My imagination came to my
aid, and I could see the ducks swimming
gracefully around, feeding leisurely, en
tirely unconscious of my presence and the
impending danger. I observed that by go
ing around to tho left 1 could come up be
hind a little clump of willows within easy
range of the game.
Hero was a pudding and no mistake.
Willi tlio stealthy tread or a cat 1 ap-
proached my unsuspecting victims. I even
got down and crawled. I was nearly to
the willows, and peered eaulioiislythrougli
them to make sure. The first tiling tiiat
I met my view was a dog silting there under
a leaning willow on his haunches, demure
ly looking out over the pond, iyil tho next
thing I saw was a mini quietly lighting his
pipe. To say that 1 sneaked back and
away clear away from that pond is put
ting it modestly, anil Friend 11. does not
know to this day how near I came to pot
