THE AST OF FINDIN3. A Han Who Makes Ilia Living by Keeping Ilia F.yea I'pon the rave, meat. New York Sun. "If you can get that queer-looking duck to talk, bo may give you a wrinkle," said a po licemantoa reporter, pointing out a man whom the reporter bad often seen loitering around tbe newspaper offices as tbe lust of tbe reporters, editors, and conipositoiu bend their steps homeward. His age was probably about 45, although tbe weather-beaten look of his ' face made him seem older than he really was. His slight tlsMire was bent forward at the shoulders, and bis eyes were closely bent upon the lavement as be walked slowly along. " 1 don't waiTi no coinietitors in my biz," be said, " tbo' 'taint every one who'd have the perseverance or the gifts to follow it. I'm a iindor, thut's what I am, and I'm a mo nopolist." u What is a finder!" asked the rejiorter. " I'm a finder of things that are lost; that is I hunts for 'em a good deal ofteuer thau I finds 'em. You ain't no idea bow many val'ble things is lost every day iu this city jewels, watches, purses, rolls of money, dogs and children. Not half the folks who loses thinks to advertise, but some does. They rush to the newspaper offices, and I waits here to get the earliest copies uud read the advertisements." "Is it possible you find things that have been lost so many hours beforef" "Sometimes, but not often. If I makes a good hit once in two weeks I'm satisfied. Just as often I don't make one in a mouth. You see, the ad. says very gen'lly, 'lost 'tween somewhere and somewhere.' Well I goes and I paces that district, and my eyes has got so sharp that they cau tell the glint of a di'mond or any stone from a bit of broken glass on the darkest nibt. Why, you and a lots of people walks over lost things evory day and never sets 'em. You walks with your eyes in the air a fixed on the folks and the windows, - or the pavement 100 feet ahead of you. Mine is always close to my own feet, aud I walk mighty slow. The gutters is the great place for lost things; tbey get dropped there by women who are alius iu a hurry crossing roads, or they got knocked in by feet or dresses. Only the other day I was crossing a street and taw a muddy bit of cardboard lying iu the gutter. Ten thousand peoplo 'would have passed' it by, but I saw what looked like a piu sticking iu it. I grablied its turned it over, and there, sure enough, was a a gold breastpin ret with pearls -stunners too." 4en. Kherman'n Wimple Campaign Habit. E. V. Smalley iu The Century. Sherman's habits during his camimigns were of the simplest. He rose early iu the morning, and was .ip late at night. In the face of the enemy, five hours' sleep suflicied him. Before the reveille sounded, be was often in the saddle and out on the most exposed part of his line. The orders were always to arouse bim at any hour of the night, if reports came in. During the Atlanta campaign he set the example, to bis troops of discarding tents and reducing baggage to a minimum. There was but one tent attached to his headquarters, and that war used by bis adjutant general and his clerks. With his staff he slept on the ground under a tent fly, which was stretched at night over a pole resting in the cmtches of gome convenient saplings. It used to be said that bis headquarters were in a candle-box, because one or two small boxes, emptied of the caudles they originally bad contained, served to transport his papers. The soldiers called him "Old Tecum" and 'Uncle Billy," tub latter nickname coming into general use in the army during the march to the sea. At his headquarters a single sentry stood guard; but nobody, whether officer or private soldier, who wanted to speak to the general, was stopped. He always bad a cordial and encouraging word for" the soldiers when bo rode along tbo lines in front of the e neiny or passed a marching column. For the details of military etiquette and cereuwuy he cared nothing; but for sturdiness in action aud endurance in hard marching, he had a quick eye and a ready word of praise. He was unusually comraunicativo and outspoken, unless bis plans demanded secrecy. Sometimes his frankness decoived the enemy more than concealment would have done. After he captured Kavaunah, be sent a flag-of -truce boat to Charleston and gave jwrmission to go upon it to the families of Confederate ofilcers who wished to get in side the Confederate lines. Anions the ap plicants for passes was the wife of a Con federate surgeon, who told the general the wanted to o to Columbia, South Carolina, to join her husband. "Don't go to i '..ii.n.lim mnlnm" exclaimed Sherman. "I tuall be there myself iu a few days with my whole army.

Tbey have a song for each kind of work, whose author Is unknown, but with whose words and tune all are familiar. The following is the corn gathering song.

New York Cor. Chicago Herald. A self-exhibitor now in New York is Cable, the highly successful writer of novels on the Iheme of Creole life in New Orleans. He has bit a now and rich vein in fiction, and is work ing it with much ability. But I think be is making a mistake in coining north in quest of personal adulation. Ho went at first to Bos ton, where there is a circle of mutual admir ers, to whom be revealed himself as a reader of his own sketches. Tbey gave him the right hand of fellowship. That was as far as be ought to have gone. But he is trying Now York. We, too, have a clique of self-chosen literary people, probably as numerous and unproductive as Boston's, but they don't count for much in this big city. Tbey have rapturously taken Cable in; but he is already finding out that their sponsorship is rather a damage than otherwise with the many thousands of cultured people who have ap preciatively read his works. The tendency hero is strong to make sport of pretentiousness, aud that is why, by los ing without a good excuse for it, he is in dauger of.b?ing populaely underestimated. He is a pleasant euougb fellow to look at, reads with a fair mastery of the peculiar Creole dialect, sings some Creole songs in a nasal falsetto that would insura ridicule be fore a promiscuous assemblug , on 1 affects the Byronic style of dross. He is tho present Bunthoruo of our te-thetic women and almost as feuiin n ) men. But he Is a genius, after all is said, and ho has an observing eye.

The Mulbory street colony numbers ubout six thousand souls, and they live in quarters not large enough for six hundred decent peo ple. It is a province to itself. Tho careless stranger never wanders into it a second time. Twenty-three stores and restaurants do the principal business, but there are also three hotels (f), and two banks, two printing offices, four butcher shops and four bakeries, to say nothing of the steamship agencies. Four Italian physicians aud two Italian lawyers fling their shingles to tho breeze, while an Italian newspaper retails the gossip of the colony and reprints Italian news from the daily papers. During the day all is garlic and business, and tbe odors of both bang heavy about tho streets. At night the place is us secure from intrusion as if fenced in by a giant wall. Men have gone into that quarter after dark and have boon beard from never more. A policeman will not venture there alo.ie, and when an arrest Is to be nnde a patrol wagou with a squad of husky officers, is sent down. It is as much as a man's life is worth to go within a block of the quarter's boundary. What do these people do for a living I Well, they are tbe bootblacks, match-peddlers, fruit-vendors, chestnut-roasters and rag pickers of New York, and many of them keep cigar stands. Like Her 4reat-4reat-4randmolher. Buffalo Courier. A few days ago Miss Jennie, Hazen, of Angola township, was passing a second band picture dealer's store in Buffalo when she noticed among some old paintings a picture that was a striking likeness of herself. Look ing at tbe reflection of herself in the window and then upon the old aiming, the resem blance was wonderful. The young lady, who is only 16 yearsold, relumed borne to Angola full of her discovery, insisting that some one had been painting her picture and arranging her as a fright (the girl of the painting was dressed in the style of the last century). In cited by curiosity some of the family went to Buffalo and upon seeing the picture were as amazed as Miss Jennie. Their bewilderment was increased by de ciphering the name Jennie on the back of the painting. It also bore the name of the artist, "Richardson, 1'bila lelphia." The painting was bought for t3 5.1, and was sent to tho young lady's grandmother in Erie, Mrs. Dr. M. J. Clark, who recognized it as the lortrnit of her gran Imother, Jennie KliziU-tn Mc Michael, an intrepid Philadelphia girl, whose adventures during the revolutionary period were told at hundreds of firesides by tbo grandfathers and grandmothers of the pres ent generation.

Our regiment having the advauoe, made an early start and I did not exp vt to rejoin it until a late hour at night After find ing our comrade and giving him his morning colToe, I pushed forward. In course of the day, wishing to rest a short time. I ventured to call at a dwell ing by the roadside. The house was simply a log hut like all others in the backwoods of that part of Missouri. Entering I found it had but ono room and that furnished in the plain, rough style common to such localities. In one part of the room sat what shall I rail her? How shall 1 describe the charming creature who sat before me? A woman; an angel beautiful as day; fairer than the fairest; in age just passod bnyond charming sweet sixteen to lovely womanhood. No, I will not attempt to describe this most beautiful one. Let it aulliue that my highest ideal of angelic perfection was more than renli.ud in the person of the lovely being before me. Being a young and enthusiastic volunteer, such a feast of beauty com pletely captivated me. Numerous re membrances of stories where I had read of princesses of boauty being fonn J else where by some singularly fortune favored knight flushed through my broin. All my faith in love at first sight returned with double force. Al though enrapt I had not yet heard hor speak; had not heard the enchanting tones of hor tweet voice. Her mother could it be? Was it possible that this plain, course woman was the mother of one so divine? No! I would not believe it. I would believe that sho was the child of love- a being of heavenly, not of earthly origin, and I almost trembled for fear she would suddenly vanish from my sight and soar to hor far-off home above. Her mother went to the door and called : " ilium, come here; your sister wants to see you." Her brother would come, she would Bpeak to him. Then, oh, then ! I should hear tho delicious music from that sweet angel's tongue. Tho lnre anticipation intoxicated me. What, then, would tho sweet reality b-i? Would it then be possible for me to control myself? Could I then refrain from throwing myself at her feot and praying to be her slave forewr? She rises to speak to her brother. Oh ! sweet anticipation! One moment now is an age of bliss.
