"OLD PURP'S" RECEPTION

NEW YORK. Feb. 22. My Dear Brick:
Feeling yellow, I think I will put down a
few tabs and send you the slate. You
remember old Purple, tho man who used
to Etack his coin .up on the table and
throw flzz bots at It? Well, he blew In here
a few days ago, as broke as a dropped egg,
and I thought, considering how good be
used to be to us kids, I would set him
off a few skyrockets on my small per.
But when I came to finance my assete, I
saw right away It meant pretzels and pov
erty for Peter, so I started out to hold
up the push, and the first real thine I
struck was Manny Bowles. Manny was
colnless, but he's just the same old Manny.
all the time; dug up that grandfather's
clock he carries and told me to hock it
and keep the change. Uncle gave me 54 33
on It, and Manny was scared at so much
money; said he ought to get a rebate, so
I gave him $2 33 and held out the diff.
Well, tho gang came down fairly well
for an off year, and, last of all, I went
to see Reggie Cashman. He's a pnncp,
Reggie is, even if he has got dough; told
me to take his little old cot on the Ave.,
butler and wine Included, and use it for
o. one-night stand, all other bookings can
celed. He says: "Give old Purp the best
time you know how; enjoy yourselves, and
I'll try and drop In late myself.
Say, Mister Man I didn't do a thing;
but you know me, so we'll pass that up.
I wish I could tell you about it right, but
I can't. I've lost my dictionary, and I'm
handicapped for vocabulary. But it wns
good; don't make any mistake, it was good.
If It wasn't the prettiest imitation of a
"tcn-a-plate spread I ever sat into, I'll
lift the latch. I'll give you a few head
lines, and you can fill In the breaks from
your own fan machine, knowing the gang.
That ta'jle was too looly-oo to be spoiled;
it ought to havo been framed and hung up
on the piano in the parlor. And the but
lersay, it gave me Funstroke to watch
him; he was right off the pan and six
-ways for Sunday; played all over the
"board, and never missed a turn. The
cards couldn't go wrong with him In the
First to Get In.
The first man to get in the game was
Manny Bowles. He drifted in an hour
ahead of time, in those low-necked pa
Jamas of his, and hid his hat on the front
porch force of habit, you know. After
he had got through breathing hard at so
rauch gilding, he skylarked Into the dln-ing-rcom,
took one look at the table and
fainted. When he came out of his trance,
X handed him a bottle of fizz, and he took
It out on the back porch and talked to it
like a woman would to a sick baby. After
awhile the tinkler spelled again and the
butler played bell-hop.
It was little old Billy Rush, with a bot
tle of beer and a bag of pretzels, and
"when he saw milord, tho butler, he took
off his thimble cover and said he was look
ing for a sick friend and had made a mis
lake in the ranch; and I had to go out
and shanghai him, or he would have run
away. He's an allright boy, Billy is, but
he don't mix with the 400 enough to feel
easy when he goes against the real thing,
and the butler chivvied him.
After that, they blew in In bunches, and
everybody seemed to think it was a dona
lion party, or a sharpshooters picnic;
Tommy Spatts laid down a deck of cheese
sandwiches on the front stairs, and Teddy
Brown had four aces worth of cigars In
his hat. Bllnky Jones and Arty Fobie
came together, with a case of "blue label"
Tjetwoon them, and Bobbie White "brought
In a nice line of hot tamales; Mart Smith
hung a coil of frankfurters around Venus
de Milo's neck in the hallway, and some
one else paid In a brace of sardine boxes
and a bottle of catsup to the same fair
dame. The front end of the house looked
like a stall In Fulton market by the
time the delegates were all seated; and,
last of all, old Purp caromed in, like a
bundle of sunshine, with, the same happy
old smile and the same rainbow Tags he
wore on the last festive occasion we
mingled together at the social board. Say1,
but that boy Is the youngest old stiff that
ever came over the bridge; he's all wool,
six plv, and buttons four ways. He's as
lull of good, clean humor as a cat is of
cusscdness. and -when he starts in to talk
the cars stop.
Did Ills "Turn."
After a short session at the penitent
form In tho drawing-room, the Duke de
Caglac, as Tommy Spratts christened the
butler, came down to the footlights and
did his unparelleled specialty, entitled:
"Gentlemen, the Banquet Is Spread," and
the push chased Into the dining-room and
drew cards in the game. Old Purp sat
at tho head of the table, and Manny
Bowles made good at the foot. They
were the stars, and the rest of the show
sat In wherever they could get action, ex
cept me, and I stood around and made a
lew passes, just to help the Duke out. But
I couldn't do anything for that party;
be's the best in his biz, "bar none, and
tho way ho juggled eatables made the
chills run up my spine. He filled all dates
and had open time to burn, and Billy
Rush sprained both eyes watching him;
ho made one big hit with Billy, all right,
and I woulds't wonder if he tried to sign
the Duke for a top-lino specialty, with his
"Tom" show next season.
Well, everything went as merry as a
marriage bell, from oysters to cheese.
Manny Bowles rang in some curves that
would have made an etiquette umpire send
him to the bench, and Billy Rush gave
the Duke an awful jolt, when he spread
butter on his olives; but these were mere
bagatelles and cut no barbed-wire with
the events of the evening. Being In with
the dealer, my rake-off was one pot In
every four, so I managed to keep on
Sunshine Allej and lay a few happy days
one side for Poverty Row, at the same
When tho creme-de-menthes were dealt
everybody felt like ready money and more
to come, and Manny Bowles rang the
bell to start the merry-go-round, by lift
ing himself and pumping his chin. He
certainly had bonds In the bank that
night, Manny had, let alone a cinch on
the Vanderbilts and three or four rail
roads, right where he could lay his hands
on them, and he was dead willing to let
everybody in on the ground floor. Never
saw so much coin scattered around loose
as Manny threw to the birds on that oc
cas'on. And he made a nice talk, too;
said that " 'customed 6'e was to social
functions of thish nature, candor 'pelled
him to shay that from stan'pois' of eats
an drlnksh thish feed was a honey-cooler,
and shulted him down the ground; an'
he hoped thish wash on'y the c'mence
ment of many such brilliant gatherings in
the future, an' he placed himself an his
'stabllshment at the disposal of his friends,
at any time, for so worthy a cause,"
Purple Is Toasted.
Then he proposed a toast to old Purple
"Besh old wagon 'at ever carried a load."
and some one filled .his fizz glass with
olive oil. and he drank It, and then
.wanted to fight tho man who -had jobbed
About this time. Arty Toble came out
of his snake-dream, took steam, and
worked his buzzer 40 revolutions a sec
ond, for 10 consecutive seconds: then he
lost a crank pin and was only able to
work one side the rest of the evening.
This started Spatt's parrot to working
overtime, and ho tried to shed his duster
and play rlng-around-rosey with Manny
Bowles, who was still keeping the wires
hot about jobber', with side lights on
Spatt's career as a josher; but the Duke
hypnotized Spatts and he fanned out.
Then Billy Rush whirred a few times
and began to coo. He wanted to bet a
hundred that Manny Bowles didn't have
SO cents In his towels, and Manny got I
s Interested he forgot the olive oil job
ber', and raised the bet a thousand.
Say, Mister Man, but this was where the
slaughter commenced. Billy put up his
Broadway office building, and Manny
raised him with his steam yacht and a
couple of acres In Harlem. Billy came
up to him with his Indian River orange
grove, and went him a couple of street
car franchises better. Manny was game,
and put up the New York Central Rail
road, with the President and Board of
Directors thrown in. Billy sweat a few
palls of blood, but dug up a mortgage on
the Waldorf-Astoria, a bundle of stock In
a horse-meat factory out West, a coffee
plantation In South America, three tickets
to a charity bazar, a membership In the
Mystic Tribe, and a rubber golf ball.
He had Manny groggy, but that boy
don't know when he's whipped. We fed
him another small bot. crossed his hands
with a dill pickle, rubbed some Neuchatel
cheese In his hair, and he came up smil
ing, with a Lttle Gem meal ticket, four
cigarettes, photo of a real loidy in tights,
seven brass beer checks, a bill for room
rent and a letter from Ohio. Then Billy
evened up with a pair of gilt cuff but
tons and called.
Xo Money Up.
There was no money handled, but
It was a stiff game, at that. Manny
went through his pajamas and brought
up a two-bit piece on the prelim
inary survey; then he ran another line,
and panned four coppers. It was even
money on the blackboard at this stage of
the game, with Billy figuring ud his win-
Dot (aged G) Mamma, if I get married, will

Dot (gloomily) Mamma, It's a tough world
nings. Manny made three more drag
net hauls, but couldn't show even colors
In the prospect, and odds were offered
against him with no takers.
Manny looked weak, and Billy began to
declare dividends. Manny went through
his jeans again with a fine tooth comb
results, nit! Billy commenced to reor
ganize the Board of Directors of the New
York Central, and rtarted to chase the
goats off the property in Harlem, but
say: Old Manny reached for another bot,
cached it, put three fingers against his
forehead, grabbed me by the hand, allee
samee Bishop, the think doctor, galloped
out on the porch, dug his hat out from
among tho pines, galloped back to the
gang, shok his hat over the table, and
out dropped four coppers, putting him un

beans to the goodl
Well, about this time. Brick, I com
menced to lose Interest In the sordid de
tails of life, and turned my attention to
schemes of vast magnitude. Things were
doing all around me, but I saw them as
through a glass darkly. I think most
of them happened on another planet than
this, anyway. O! I was hitting the high
places and caroming off mountain tops
properly, and nothing but high jumps
suited me. I have a dim, perspective
photo on my gray, which seems to show
threo or four Bobby Whites, warbling
several kinds of "Sweet Alice Ben Bolt."
In rag-timo on that chest grama phone of
his or theirs while an equal number, or
more, Spattses are doing cake walka
around the room with their arms full of
real ladles, done in bronze.
I have, also, a long-distance view of
Manny Bowles, with a red fez stuck on
the corner of his wheelhouse, doing stunts
with glass decanters and things, and old
Purple, his Jolly face shining like a red
apple, sitting in a champagne bucket and
wafting him the cordial beam. O, yes;
there was something doing all right three
rings and a chariot race all going at the
same time; but I couldn't stop to look at
them long, for somebody let down the
swaggerest thing, in the way of a silver
cloud, with pink and gold trimmings, that
ever fractured my eyesight, and I got
right up Into It and floated away like
Clara In the automobile. It was a dead
swell act, that was, and only comes with
that brand of fizz.
But. what ho! She bumps! Of course,
I struck gravel again in Poverty Row,
and oh, what a difference when the band
goes homo! All that day I floated around
the room, with my head bumping the ceil
ing like a toy balloon broken loose, but
the next day I put on toe-weights and
got through the door without fracturing
my skull, though every few minutes,
going down the street, I had to hang on
to the palings to keep from soaring up
into the blue. I met Reggie Cashman
in Shaughnessey's, and Reggie says:
"Say, did you chaps have a good time
the other night?"
I told him tableaux and Greek fire
weren't in it with that occasion, and he
"Well, when I got home something gave
mo the Idea that you had enjoyed your
selves. I don't know what made" me think
so. but I got that idea."
He's an all-right boy, Reggie is, but ho
can Juggle sarcasm to beat the cars. He
told mo he went down next day and got
Old Purple and Manny Bowles out of
hock. Reggie said they turned In a call
for an ambulance dows town somewhere,
and when the ambulance arrived, there
stood Manny and Old Purple on the cor
ner, with the Venus de MIlo between
them. Manny still had on his fez and a
table-cover tied around. Ills waist, with n
Chinese snickersnee stuck in It, and was
still offering railway bonds away below
par; and Old Purple had on Reggie's silk
hat, with a feather duster stuck through
the top, and a coil of Frankfurters tied
in a bow around his neck. He also car
ried a flzz bucket, with three cheese sand
wiches and a bottle of tabasco laid away
In the ice.
They said the Venus had fallen down
stairs and broken both arms, and they
wanted her sent to Bellevue Hospital In
the ambulance, but the doctor was no
Josher, so ho gathered In the whole outfit,
flzz bucket and all, and landed them In
hock, and there Reggie found them next

THEIR, PERSISTENT x UsECUTIOX
OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL.
From Earlier Historic to Modern
Times Have They Shown Their
Dislike of Hebrew Race.
The fact of anti-Semitism Is so old and
the accusers of the people of Israel have
been so many, that the descendants of
Abraham are becomjng accustomed to
abuse perhaps would be lonely without it.
How ancient are the charges against that
tribe whoso badge Is sufferance! As old
as history, maybe older. Doubtless tho
Egyptians hated their Hebrew slaves; cer
tainly the Assyrians conquered them ana
destroyed the temple of Solomon, and
very probably, just as Daniel was perse
cuted and thrown Into the den of lions,
there were others of his fellow-believers
who did not escape so miraculously.
It is well known that the Romans hated
tho Inhabitants of Palestine, for their
chief historian, Tacitus, says: "Whatever
is held sacred by the Romans, with tho
Jews is profane, and what. In other Da-

some that have been devised by the mod

was permitted to be placed in the temple,
according to biblical law. With the growth
and development of Christianity, some

charges were mado against tho "stiff
Courses of Opposition.
The line of anti-Semitic feeling in early
medieval times followed two more or less
distinct courses. When, In the 14th cen
tury, the plague of the Black Death spread
from China and Invaded Europe, the sons
of Israel were charged with having
poisoned the streams and wells. What
seemed at first to lend some plausibility
to the suggestion was the fact that tho
plague attacked the Hebrews in a some
what milder form. This was probably due
to tho more temperate and cleanly mode
of life which their religion prescribed and,
although many of them died of the Black
Death, and it appeared In districts where
none of the Israelites lived, the suggested
cause gained wide acceptance.
Tills accusation first took form in
Southern Franco, where, In 134S, an entire
congregation was cast into the flames. Ii
was said that a world-wide conspiracy
had been formed, with Jacob Pascate, of
Toledo, as chief conspirator, and that the
poison was manufactured from the flesh
of the basilisk, or from spiders, frogs and
lizards and sent from Toledo all over Eu
Tope. Pope Clement VI Issued a bull, de
nouncing these charges as false, but even
papal authority could not protect the de
voted people. The story spread to Spain
with tho Black Death, and as the dread
plague mado Its way to Switzerland, Co
logno and Strasburg, the accusation of
poisoning the water supply brought ever
increasing persecutions upon the helpless
Again Clement VI found it necessary to
protest against the persecutions, pointing
out the fact that the persecuted, too. wero
dying from the plague, and that It had
spread Into provinces never trodden by
the feet of the despised race, but all was
In vain. In Basle, the very city which ex
tended its hospitality to the Zionists, for
their conventions in 1S97 and 1S9S. the en
tire community of Hebrews was driven
Into a building, especially constructed for
the purpose, and there burned to death
January 9, 1349. At Strasburg 2000 of the
unfortunates were dragged to the ceme
tery and burned at tho stake. Such was
the ancient suffering entailed by ignorance,
Another Black Charge,
There was still another black charge
made against the Hebrews during me
dieval darkness. The horrible accusation
that Christian children were slain at Pass
over, and their blood used in the making of
tho unleavened cakes was echoed and re
echoed from age to age. Only In 1S97 the
tale was retold In Germany. A Jewish
woman named Hertz, at Issum, on the
Lower Rhine, asked a 9-year-old boy,
Karl Hilb, to go on an errand for her, to
get some lamp chimneys. As Frau Hertz
was about to fetch the lamp, the lad ran
home and told his parents that the "Jew
woman" had enticed him Into her house
and attempted to murder him. The father
of the child at once communicated with
tho police, and the greatest excitement
prevailed in tho town. The burgomaster,
Herr Hackmann, took the matter up, and,
after Interrogating the lad, soon found
that the latter had fabricated the whole
story. The burgomaster immediately took
steps to prevent the arrest of Frau Hertz,
The anti-Semite papers had, meanwhile!
heard of the affair and made the most of
It, speaking of wholesale arrests of those
Implicated. Thanks to the action of Herr
Hackmann the matter was settled quietly
and justly, but such burgomasters were
not always found.
As long ago as 1171, the "blood accusa
tion" was made against the Hebrews The
historians record the story thus:
"A Jew, of Blois. was riding at dusk
toward the Loire, in order to water his
horse. There he met a Christian groom,
whose horse shied at a white fleece which
tho Jew wore beneath his cloak, and,
growing restive, refused to go to the
water. The servant, who was well aware
of the Jew-hating character of his master,
tho mayor of the town, concocted a story
which served as ground for an accusation.
He- asserted that he had seen the Israelite
horseman throw a murdered Christian
child Into the water.
Mayor Sought Revenfcc.
The mayor bore a grudge against an In
fluential Jewish woman, named Pulcellna,
who was a favorite of his lord, Count
Theobald of Chartres, and took this op
portunity of revenging himself. He repeat
ed the lie about the murder of a Christian
child, and the charge read: "The Jews
crucified It for Passover, and then threw
It Into the Loire."
Count Theobald thereupon commanded
that all the Jews should be put In chains
and thrown into prison. Pulcellna alone,
for whom Theobald entertained a particu
lar affection, remained unharmed. Rely
ing upon this, she promised her co-religionists
to secure .their release. But Isa
beile, the count's wife, stirred by Jeal
ousy, planned the utter destruction of the
Jews. She prevented Pulcellna from see
ing the count, and when he was ready to
release the prisoners, upon payment of a
heavy fine, a priest Interfered, suggesting
a test of tho truth of the groom's state
ment The servant was taken to the river
and set adrift In a boat filled with water,
and, as he did not sink, the count and
Christian population were firmly convinced
of his truthfulness. The entire Jewish
congregation of Blois was condemned to
death by fire. Thirty-four men and 17
women, including Pulcellna, were tortured,
and then burned at the stake. May 26,
With this tragic tale of hatred. Jealousy
and perjury, began the long line of blood
accusations, which were to spread over
Europe and Asia, for eight centuries to
come, notwithstanding every effort to
prove tho falsity of tho charge. In vain
did those learned in tho law point to the
Bible and the Talmud, showing that these
absolutely forbade the use of the blood of
any animal, much more the blood of hu
man beings. Vainly did they ask the ac
cusers to prove their charges; tho reply
was the torture and tho stake. Monarcha
and popes arose who tried to stem the tide
of prejudice, but In vain.
Sprend to Germany.
Philip Augustus, In 11S1, asserted his be
lief in tho Innocence of the downtrodden
Hebrews, but tho poisonous tale spread to
Germany, nevertheless. Whenever the
dead body of a Christian was found,
princes and people Immediately laid the
murder at the door of the Hebrew. A
ship containing Jews was going from Co
logne to Boppard. and, after it, another
ship, with Christian passengers, sailed.
When tho second vessel reached Boppard.
the dead body of a Christian woman was
found there; the conclusion was that the
Jews had slain her. The Christians then
pursued the first ship and hurled Its Inno
cent passengers Into the Rhine.
On another occasion the body of a
Christian was found between Lauda and
Bischofshelm (Baden). Without any In
vestigation, the Jewish men, women and
children of both towns were attacked by
the mob and clergy and put to death,
without any trial whatever. The same
story might be told over and over again,
for ever district and decade, with so Ht
tlo variation as to be monotonous.
Popo Innocent TV found it necessary to
dispatch a bull from Lyons, July 5, 1247.
stating: "Certain of the clergy and
princes, nobles and great lords of your
dioceses (In France and Germany) have
falsely devised certain godless plans
against the Jews, unjustly depriving them,
by force, of their property, and appropri
ating it themselves; they falsely charge
them with dividing up among themselves
on tho Passover the heart of a murdered
boy. Christians believe that tho law of
the Jews prescribed this to them, while
In their law the very reverse Is ordained.
In fact, in their malice they ascribe every
murder, wherever It chance to occur, to
England Took a Hand.
England did not, escape. the passion for.
persecution perhaps was the originator
of this charge (1146), at Norwich, which
was convulsed with a blood accusation,
the result of which was that Innocent
men and women were sawn asunder. The
boy supposed to have been slain. on that
occasion was mado "Saint William, of
Palermo contributed Its horror, and Vi
enna was once more ready with Its woes.
It was in 1420 that three Christian chil
dren went skating near that city. The
Ice gave way and they were drowned.
When the anxious parents failed to find
them, a malicious rumor was set on foot
that they had been slaughtered by the
Jews, who required their blood for the
ensuing Passover celebration. The re
sult was a wholesale slaughter of the
Jews, more than 100 of them being put
to death In one field near the Danube.
Silesia, Trent and Ratlsbon all had their
sensational attacks upon the Hcbrows,
with Just as good excuse as the other
Emperor Frederick III declared his dis
belief of these charges, but little good
was accomplished thereby. After Luther
had used the Hebrews for the purpose of
the Reformation, he did not hesitate to
turn upon them with sweeping charges.
Clement XIII (1759) proclaimed that the
holy see had examined the ground on
which the belief In the use of human
blood for the feast of the Pushover rest
ed, and that tho Jews must not be con
demned as criminals, without due and
A hundred years before this, Vienna had
again distinguished Itself by expelling
ever Hebrew soul from within its walls.
If Christians could and did entertain such
accusations against the Jews, the Mo
hammedans were not altogether behind
the times, even though they waited until
1S40 to have a great excitement over this
Sir Moses Montefiore and M. Adolf Cre
moeux went on a special mission to Da
mascus, the seat of the trouble, and suc
ceeded in preventing great slaughter and
continued suffering. Professor Leopold
Zuna, one of the greatest of German
scholars, proved that the charge that the
Talmud countenanced any such practice
was absolutely false, and yet there are
some still ready to believe what they
wish to believe.
What a story it Is! Tho ccnturied mar
tyrdom of the followers of Jehovah; a
childish persecution, on tho poorest and
flimsiest of accusations; a war of exter
mination, waged with the weapons of
falsehood, malice and prejudice! Let him
who will blame the poor, Ignorant boors
of the Middle Ages for believing that the
Hebrews had poisoned their wells, or slain
their children, especially after their
preachers had told them so. But what
shall be. said of the cultured and Intel
lectual editors of Vienna newspapers who
charge the Jewish doctors with malicious
ly importing the bubonic plague? Do
they think all men are children, and will
always remain so?
The anti-Semites must be in great
straits, indeed, to support such a charge.
