THE MAKING OF THIEVES.
0. SlsnlQcnnt Increaso In tho Nninboi- of
Thcro has snroly been of lato a very j
groat and significant increaso in tho num
ber of child criminals that aro brought
to our polico courts. Thcio aro rcoro of
thorn, and thoy aro much younger than
tiioy used to be, and they aro vastly
"tougher. " Thoir mannor shows plain
ly that tho street has been thoir teacher,
and that they havo been apt pupils. Its
mothod is simple- and varies in Hell's
Kitchen nnd in Jowtowg only in tho
opportunities offered. To begin with,
tho hoy idler in tho strcot during school
hours i3 thcro in deflanco of law, wheth
er tho fault is his own or not, and ho
knows it. Ho i3 in tho attitudo of "op
position, tho normal attitudo of tho
Etrcct. Tho policeman is his enemy, and
tho policeman stands for tho establish
ed order of things.
Thus tho groundwork is laid for
whatever mischief comes along. It is
not long in coming, rarely longer than
tho dinner hour of tho first day. Tho
boy is. hungry. Ho wants something to
cat. A boy's hunger is not likoa man's,
which can bo appeased with promises.
Ho wants something at once. If ho is
playing hooky, ho does not want to go
homo to got it. Anyway thero is no
need to do so. Tho street can show him
an easier way. A grocer's stand is
handy, or a pio wagon; better still, a
sotla water waon. Tho bottlo is worth
so much cash at tho jnnkshop. Tho
driver's back is turned. Tho boy
It is not n very great crime, but it is
tho stepping stono to many greater. A
horso blanket or a copper bottomed boil
er may bo tho next tiling. It is tho
first Etep that costs an effort, and that
not a very great one, with tho clamor
of a hungry stomach to drown tho warn
ing voico within him that whispers of
tho policeman and tho lockup. Tho
friends ho makes in tho ctrect soon help
him to contempt for thn ono and a se
cret prido in tho ether. Jacob A. Eiis

Tho Night Conductor Courtship.
The conductors on tho night runs aro
usually more genial than thoso who
look after tho fares in tho daytime.
Just why tuis should bo so is not quite
clear, but tho fact that most of them
conduct affairs of the heart with young
women who aro engaged in domestic
service during tho daytime mav havo
something to do with it. In making as
signments tho aim usually is to put tho
married men on tho day runs and the
single men on at night As soon as tho

A WICKED WAG.
Bending nn Annoying Letter to Well
Known Washington Women.
Sonio lunatic or practical joker has
been taking liberties with tho proudest
dames nnd dowagers of Washington,
and from letters and telegrams that
havo been received hero it would seem
that ho has dono tho samo with promi
nent ladies in other cities. He eigna
himself Colonel Star berry Fairfax, but
that docs not appear in tho directory,
nor is it known to any of tho Virginians
or Kenfuekians who would bo likely to
havo an acquaintance with such a per
son if ho existed. His letterhead read..,
North American Lecturo Bureau,
West era Division," but ho gives no
street or town address, and if any one
wanted to answer him ho would not
know whero to direct tho envelope. Tho
letters aro all uniform and read 03 fol
lows: Dear Mad ah Tho constant expression of
sympathy which i3 manifested throughout tho
country for that distinguished hut martyred
statesman of Kentucky, Hon. Y7. c. P. Breck
inridge, suggests that tho peoplo of tho land
should havo nn opportunity of hearing his elo
quent defense of religion and morality. In re
sponse to vehement calls from tho women of
America it has been deemed wiso to placo him
upon tho lecturo platform. It is intended to
havo him lecturo in tho principal cities under
tho auspices of a board of national patron
esses, ono representative lady from each prin
cipal city constituting that board. Yournamo
has been suggested for tho city of Washington,
and unless wo hear from you to tho contrary
by tho morning of tho 21st inst. it will bo
printed as a member of tho national board on
all tho programmes and show bills throughout
tho ocuntry. I leave for tho west on Wednesday
morning. Thanking you in advance Icq your
courtesy, I remain your most obedient serv
ant. Very naturally tho ladie3 who havo
received this communication and they
aro among the social leaders of Wash
ington havo been thrown into a state
of panic, particularly as tho writer
threatens to accept silence as assent and
does not tell where a refusal will reach
him. It is not believed that Colonel

tho affair, but it is Supposed to bo tho

THE TROUBLESOME SULTAN.
lie Will Attempt to I'lay the Queen Against
tho foreign Odco and Russia.
Ono of tho first questions in which
England and .Russia will bo strongly
urged to tako united action in tho mat
ter of tho Armenian persecutions. The
Turks themselves now confess that 2,000
Armenians wero slaughtered in what
they describe as tho suppression of a ro-
bejlion. Tho British foreign office has
already made a protest, which is as
strong as any form of interference it
usually indulges in. It is well known
that no diplomatic weapon short of a
threat which amounts to an ultimatum
has any effect on tho porte. Public opin
ion in this country, therefore, clamors
loudly for extreme- measures, and the
indications aro that the government will
be compelled to yield to this pressure.
Popular opinion is also expressing it-
self in another way. It has been a
grievance with the sultan " for jnany
years that Queen victoria has not made
him a Knight of tho Garter. Over and
over again plain hint3 havo been given
to successive embassadors and to distin
guished visiters that tho distinction of
tho bluo ribbon would bo much appreci
ated by his majesty. Now tho sultan
has decided to force tho queen's hand.
Ho has intimated his intention to send
tho grand master of ceremonies to Eng
land to deliver to her majesty the rib
bon, star and insignia of tho new Turk
ish Order of tho House of tho Family cf
Osman, which is limited to crowned
heads. It was recently conferred upon
tho German cmneror, who forthwith
created the sultan a Enight cf-tho Black
Eagle. Of courso the queen now cannot
avoid returning tho sultan's compliment
by giving him tho garter, and it has
been privately arranged that tho Duko
of Coburg shall go to Constantinople in
the spring to invest bun with tuis order.
Tho English press aro now voicing
strong protests against such a compli
ment until tho sultan grants full justice
to tho Armenians. London Cor. riew
A Tiny 3Ioons Inhabitants.
Tho inner moon of Mars is named
Phobos and is a tiny satellite only eight
miles in diameter. Let us suppose that
everything cn our earth, which is noar-
ly 1,000 times larger than tho littlo
Phobian planet, is to bo found cn tho
surfaco of this miniature moon, reduced
proportionately. Wo find, to begin with,
that a terrestrial man of 0 feet, if trans
f erred to Phobos, would bo .072 of an
men m ueignt. A good microscope
would bo necessary to determine tho
truo shapo and form of this speck of hu
manity, and it would bo wholly invisi
ble to tho unaided eyo at a distance of
threo feet. A ship of tho dimensions of
tho Great Eastern would bo but 7.j
inches m length n reduced to tho Pho
bian standard, and a duck pond would
bo r. fathomless ocean to tho lilhpu-
tian inhabitants of this Marsian satel
lite. A whalo would bo as small as a
cheese mite, and a real sea- serpent,
which would bo a terror to the Phobian
mariner, would bo liko a section of a
hair worm five-eighths of an inch in
length. Tho largest rivers cannot bo
moro than a few feet in breadth and not
moro than 2 inches in depth. A railway
train liko tho "Chicago llier" could bo
carried in an earthly cardcasc, and a
city tho sizo of New York could bo cov

Tho wholesalo exposure cf tho venal
