S STORY OF • STREET ARAB. Mom the London Figaro.] I was a street Arab. So was my broth er Bill. Father and mother used- to drink and send us to beg or iteal—it didn't matter much which, so that we brought something home. We were rag ged'and dirty, fierce, impudent and reck less. I was the worse of sthe two for / v s the oldest and the strongest. All d sf ; and almost all night too; I was in the street. To scape the "Bobby" Fused t o get a few boxes of lucifers and fu; god shout nut "Here yer are: four for a penn y." I sold very few of 'em. They only served as a blind to get ha' pence without giving a box. How I was knock and kicked about, to be sure ! In rain s , ti snow, frost and sun, I was in the 5 , re , t5; the rainier and frostier the bet ter, for, though there were few people then , I sot mire money out of pity; sL.: could prig more from the stalls—they veren't watched so anal. Some o' the rac,iiey I took home, but most of it I Generally I got enough to eat, :t c , imes I , was almost clammed. If I m e, 't got any money or wittels, I didn't g eto our one room in a crowded, e:rty court, which we called our home. N,,t that I cared much for the thrashing r it, but I liked better tti lie on door gers , nr in entries, or anywhere, where cud skid the Bobby. It was an awful ir Hy life for a time, and didn't I look e , ivn on the well dressed kids who were forced to keepi themselves,. clean, and earn't turn a catharine-wheel in the mud; cr . pay ;ir pitch and toss, heads or tails, with their money ! Slmetimes would stop and talk t , me, asking about my father and moth and wanting to know why I didn't go t: school. I didn't know what they meant by school, and chapel, and the Sa viour, but I told 'em plenty n' guff, and mostly got money out 'em. Tell 'em where we live! —not if I knowed it. It would have spoiled the little game, quite. No, they never got tht truth o' me, 'cept when I told 'em I was hungry. At last I got nabbed. How was it ? Why, I was taking a bit o' candy from a stall at the corner o' a street, when round comes the Bobby and takes me off at once to quod. I was only a little tun I was over twelve, but I didn't know. Did I know what being good meant I didn't. Did I know where I should gl to if I told a lie? I didn't. The beaks shook their heads and talked together a bit. So I was Sent to prison for a day, and to a rtfornaatory for five years. Well, they washed me first and put eean clothes on me. Wasn't I miserable for a time? If I could, Ishould. ha' run away; but that wasn't possible, I was watched so. In a week or two I began to like it rather. At least, I liked the work they put me at. but I was longer before I V . -led the books. However, this came - at Everybody was so kind to me, and IJId me what a man I ghoull be if I only kept on, and was tonest and industrious. S c I learned carpentering, and a bit of gardeining l and, at last, I was able to read and write, and sum a bit, and got a lot of good marks. And once I heard the master say to a gentleman whin_ came to visit the place that I was one of the best bars in the school, though at first I had been one of the worse. This made me a bit proud, and I worked all the better for Before my five years were out I was al tczether changed, and wanted to get on i 2 the world. I told the master, and be t 'd the chaplain and the visitingOs t:ces, that I wished to go abroad and do something gold for myself. I was only seventeen but that didn't matt,“. I could work well, and wasn't a bad schol tr. Well, the end of it was that they prom ise,! to help me; and they.did. The mas ter and the chaplain were both very earnest in it, and helped me in many ways I chose Africa to go to, because, I s•.:ppose, I bad read a good deal about it. an thought I could do well there. Ea .ugh money was raised to get ms a few cl )thes and to have a little to start wall, and a place was found for me in a slip in which I could work out my pas sa.:e. I won't say anything about the voyage, though it was a new world to me and everything was wonderful; I wanted to get to land and to begin to work for my stlf. Still, I was just a little sorry' when eras over; the sea was such a pleasure t , me. The character I brought with me, v.,.1 the good word of the captain soon g t tie a place with a flamer at Natal. .I)tri't I work, and didn't I save.? Be_ cluse I worked so well, put my whole into it, I soon became a favorite with naaster,‘who used to ask me to spend aa evening now and then at•his house. Ii:• family was a large one, tour sons and Seven daughters, but blary was the flower of tile flock. I soon fell over head and ears in love with ber, so here was another ice , to save and get on. Of course I d'in't say a word about my love, but kept my place, was silent, and deter mined to gain a position and win her. If You mean to do anything, keep it to yrurt.elf, and don't blab it on the house tops. In four years, with some help from my master, who always encouraged me, I was able to take a plantation next to his. So we became' neighbors and . friends. I Wall(a another year, and saw that e very tiALg was going on well, and then I spoke Mary. She was wiling, and so were they all, and, on the anniversary of the EMI. year of my landing at Natal, I mar• rigid Mary Bevan, and commenced house keeping an my own account. She proved , • a real blessing and-s, true' help. Every thing. we undertook prospered.. Why, she could dti•erverything—from flat SOw lug to., nulkytg cows. Brother s And l itt tern ivereslicrtiniOelpfal, %Pt were as one family, working one end—the happiness and pFosperitt, of _ an% other y_ear,- juit'before , ottr first tad was born, 'was able.to buy the plantation, and so beeaniemy own landlord. The fight of Mary's - brothers often made nie think of poor Bill. Father and mother had died'while I - was - in the re formatory, but I could learn nothing of the lad whom I left in the streets. I told Mary all about it, and she, bless her heart ! adviced me to go' to England to seek him out. lam sure she advised .it becau‘she saw I wanted to go and - find the only relation I knew of the old ,c6tin , try. I had now been awaftellyeraS,lnd although not quite thirty, had made a good fortune, married the best of women, had a happy family around me, troops of friends, and brother Bi'l might perhaps, be starving, or, what would be worse, working in a prison, for crimes which, if left like him, I too might have commit ted. S), with good wises from all, with prayers for my success from Mary. I re turned to England to find my brother. If he is alive, I know I shall find him; and whether he is good or bad, whethdr he is married or single, he shall go back with me to Africa, and we will make a new man of him. He is the younger of the two, and not too old! to-übegin life again.; I know I shall find him, and then there will; perhaps, , be another .s.haPter to add to thie true story of a street Arab. Deadly struggle on a Tight Rope—sne Combatant Hurled to the Ground and Little did the tens of thousands of men, women and chillren who thronged the public-square of Agram, Crotis, on the 15th of August, andcipate that they were about to witness a spectacle such as has, Perhaps, never been seen before—a mor• al struggle -in mid-air. The occasion of the gathering was a performance on the tight-rope. The acrobats, Andreas 'Col ter and Francis Pergowitch, were to ap pear on the rope, which had been stretch ed from a window in the fifth story of the Court House, a distince - of 25( feet. The acrobats were to meet midway, and then to pass each other. When the clock struck twelve, the acrobats emerged from their respective windows, dressed in tights and without balance polls. Kolter walked rather cau tiously, while Pergowitch came to meet him from the opposite direction, with a nervous, quick step. At last they met, and the suspense of the crowd under neath changed the next moment to a feeling of indescribable horror, Perwo witch suddenly uttered an angry expla mation, and dealt Kolter a terrible blow on the bead. Kolter staggered and fe 11, but in so doing succeeded in clut6ing the rope with one hand, while with the other he grasp the ieft leg of his assail ant. Pergowitch now fell likewise, but passed his right arm around the rope, so that he hung upon it in comparative secs rity. And now began a life and death strug gle. Kolter, with his right hand, tried to drag Hergowitch from the rope, while Pergowitch kieked Kolter with his right foot, and with his left hand endeavored to loosten his antagonist's bold. No one was able to interfere, and the result, it was easy to foresee, must be the death of one or both acrobats. Many women fainted, while men wept like children. What added to the general dispair was the appearance of Kolter's young wife at the open v•indow, from which her hus band a few moments ago had set out up on his fatal walk. Her piteous screams were heard above the din below, and bier appeals to Pergowitch to spa re her hus band's life would have moved' the heart of an Aapache. The struggle in mid air lasted perhaps a minute, when Kolter suddenly uttered a last cry and lost his hold. He fell to the ground, striking it violently and expiring instantly. While the people gathered round the corpse of poor Kolter, his murderer on the tight rope managed to get on his feet again. With a diabolical expression on his face he uttered a yell of triumph. The prefect of Police ordered Pergo witch to surrender. In case he should not do so within five minutes be would be shot down like a dog. Finally he raised himself to his feet and ran quickly to the court house window, where he surrended, begging that he might be pro tected from violence. There was great danger of his being executed by the peo ple, who loudly clamored that the mur derer be given up to them; but the mili tary by a bayonet charge cleared the pub lic square. Pergowitch being asked what caused him to perpetrate this crime, said that there had been a grudge between him and Kolter ever since the latter ,-had married young Rosita Serganoff, a Polish girl of rare beauty. Koller,. ID a fit of jealousy, bad told him he knew one or the other must die on this account An• dreas Kolter was the youngest member of the distinguished family of acrobats of 'that name. Tns labor troubles in Charleston, S. C., have not been quieted, but the strikers are not succeeding. Baltimote Sun' gives notice that Maryland will spend no more money on tht Chespealw and OhiO canal, and Con gress will be asked for a subsidy. COMBAT IN 111111-418. Instantly Killed.
