AN AFRICAN NURSE HIRED FOR
TWO LITTLE AFRICANS.
They are Called He and It, and She,
Their Sister, is Dead—They are Fresh
from Haggard’s Wonderful Africa—
If They’re Human, They are Wards
of the Court or Pauper Immigrants
or Chattel Slaves.
From the Xew York Sun.
The latest arrivals in New York from the
heart of the Dark Continent are He and It.
There was a She, and She was the sister of He
and It. But She died so soon after arriving
in England that she did not even have the
pleasure of meeting Mr. Haggard. So He
and It w, left sisterless orphans in a
strange le.o l. But Mr. Herman Reiche,
who was in London at the time, bought He
and It of the trader who brought them from
Africa, and he has just got them to his
place of business at 95 Park row, where he
has a large collection of everything odd in
the animal line, but nothing in any remote
degree so odd as the brothers He and It.
Mr. Reiohe spurns the idea that He and
It are monkeys or gorillas, or anything in
the ane line, but insists, although he bought
them’for cash on English soil, that they are
human beings, and he tells a curious story
about them, which he says he believes.
There is in Europe, Mr. Reiche says, a
certain German who is a trader, and' who
goes every winter into the heart of Africa,
starting from Cape Town and going as far
as he can by rail, and then pushing in the
great oxenslrawn wagons in which Mr.
Haggard’s hei’oes trek part way to many
curious places. On these journeys he col
lects ivory, gold dust, and a liquid novi,
especially rare animals, which he buys of
the natives and brings back to sell at a
Last winter he went far up the Zambesi
river, and when away beyond Victoria
Falls, at a point where white men do not
reach once in ten years, he fell in with a
tribe of natives who treated him kindly.
He bought a good deal of ivory, gold atid
other trifles in exchange for suspender
buckles, jewsharps, and similar valuables.
Among this tribe he found He, She and it
living an unhappy life with the prejudice
of the community against them. Their
mother (so the trader said the natives told
him) was a member of the tribe. She was
mysteriously stolen away, and after being
absent several years suddenly made her
appearance, carrying He and It in her
arms, while She came limping along l)ehind.
The mother was so worn out with making
a long journey throHy the wilderness that
she died, and was . -,y able to tell before
she expired that she ha i been the prisoner
of a strange people, and that He, She and
It were her offspring. The tribe did not
take kindly to the orphans, and they were
sadly neglected, so that the traveler had
little trouble in purchasing the entire
family, paying two tomato cans down on
the spot. The trader took the orphans to
London, where Mr. Reiche, who had pur
chased many curious things of him, bought
the orphans too.
Mr. Reiche came home on the Servia a
few days ago. He wanted to bring He and
It along with him, but he could not get a
stateroom for them. So he left them with
two men in his employ who were going to
bring over a number of animals for him,
and they took the two strangers with them
to Hamburg, where they embarked the
Wieland and arrived in this city last week.
On the way over the queer little beings
slept every night with the men in tneir
berths, and conducted themselves with a
gentleness and propriety which won every
They are only about a year old, and are
less than three feet high when they stand
erect. Their sister She, who died in Lon
don, was 4 years old, and was much larger.
They are of a slaty gray color, covered
sparsely with a thin reddish hair, their
faces, though, being quite bare, with the
exception of a sparse growth of Galway
whiskers on their infantile cheeks. They
are pot-bellied like little Bushmen. They
have tapering fingers and polished finger
nails, short, flat thumbs, long arms and no
tails. Their heads are rather Caucasian
than African, and the most remarkable fea
ture about them is their large, gentle,
and intelligent brown eyes. They are
of an affectionate disposition, and when
taken from their cage they will set content
edly on Mr. Reiche’s knees with their arms
thrown about his neck. They whimper and
cry and cling to him when he puts them
back in their cage, and when he leaves the
room they wail and orj f after him like two
veritable children. He (not Mr. Reiche) is
somewhat larger than It, and It has a way
of going and sitting down on his brother's
knee and throwing his arm about his neck,
while He supports It with his arm as an
other would a child.
They require so much more tender care
than the employes about the store are able
to give them that Mr. Reiche had this ad
vertisement put in yesterday’s Sun:

He (Mr. Reiche) was not long without an
applicant, and .engaged a kind-hearted col
ored woman as a nurse to look after the
little waifs. They took much more kindly
to her at flirt than she did to them, but
after the first oinbarrassmcnt of the intro
duction was over she held them both in her
arms and they clung affectionately about her
neck. They will have a room to themselves
in tne upper part of the store, and there
they will have a bed such as other people
have, and the nurse will tuck them up in it
comfortably and see them asleep before she
leaves them at night. One fine day she will
take them in her arms und carry them out
for an airing, but they have got to have an
interview with a tailor first, the airiness of
the Central African costume not being
adapted either to the dimato or the social
prejudices of New York.

is wholly lacking in the delicate sense of

points. They are to have a little table and

WINKIE CONOVER’S CORPSE.
The Remains of the Burglar Who
Plunged Into the Raritan.
From the New York Evening Sun.
The remnant of a human body was found
Wednesday in a meadow which the Raritan
river washes about two miles below Bound
Brook. It was possible only to recognize it
as a part of what hail once been the body
of a man. The flesh was almost all gone.
The corruption indicated that it had been
for many weeks in the water. It was proba
bly a part of the body of Winkie Conover,
though this conjecture rests merely upon
what happened to Winkie Conover when ho
was last seen.
Then lie was swimming the iey river to
escape from men and bullets, and before he
reached the shore that would put the river
between him and his pursuers he groaned,
then sank, and his body went under the ice.
Since then no trace of Conover has been
discovered, and though at first men who
knew him said that he was a cunning water
rat, who was able to dive under the ice,
swim a long way under water, and thus es
cape, yet, when nothing was ever again
heard of him, it w as regarded as certain that
this disappearance was no trick, but that he
Winkie Conover was a burglar, and he
was engaged in a petty burglary on Hie
night when he disappeared.
On the night of Feb. 9, of this year, a
night operator in the railway telegraph of
fice in Bound Brook noticed that a light
that was kept burning all night in the store
of Albaugh & Butts was very bright. The
night was dark and very cold. Everybody
in the little village was asleep except the
operator and ton or twelve railway em
ployes. The light was so unusually bright
that the operator, George Somers, watched
it from the platform of the railway station.
He soon saw what appeared to be the
shadows of men in the store. He went
across the street, that he might see better,
and then he discovered that two men were
robbing the store and the post office, which
is in the store.
Somers told the railway employes that
burglars were at work in the store and the
idea of capturing them was just the kind of
fun the trainmen wanted to pass a waiting
hour away. They started out to surround
the building, but it occurred to them that
the burglars’ pistols would be a strong de
fense, for not one of them had any weapon
but a stick.
Very quietly Somers and the others went
abotit the village aud awakened men who
possessed firearms. The proprietor of the
hotel, George Goddis, hastily dressed and
came out with a double-barrelled shotgun.
James Hogan was but a few minutes in
dressing and loading his gun, and in a few
moments a dozen men armed with all kinds
of firearms approached the store.
A face appeured at the window in the
store. The burglars had heard the men
outside, and oiie quick look revealed that
there was no possibility of escape, except by
fighting a way through the cordon. The
burglars ran to the back end of the store,
evidently meaning to get out by a back
door. The men stood in front of the door
with their arms cocked, ready to shoot
when the burglars made the break.
Of a sudden the door was burst open, and
a man whose white shirt offered a good
target in the moonlight rushed out. He
turned toward the railroad track and was so
fleet that not a shot was fired at him. The
party followed him. however. One of them
tried to head him off and trip him. Somers,
the telegraph operator, who was not armed,
was fleeter footed than the others, and was
able in a moment almost to grasp the
burglar. The men with the firearms dared
not shoot, for Somers and another man
were between them and the burglar. Land
lord Goddis stood with his double-barrelled
bird gun at his shoulder waiting for
a chance. He is an expert shot,
and believed he could bring down
the burglar when he had fair aim.
Somers and the other pursuer for the in
stant ran to one side, leaving an opening
through which Goddis took rapid aim and
fired. The charge was a heavy one, and the
report was very loud. Goddis was surpris
ed to see the burglar still on his feet, but
Somers saw him stagger a moment, as
though about to fall. He must have had a
large part of the heavy charge in his hack,
but he recovered himself, and though firing
was began, and several volleys from re
volver aud gun were discharged, the bur
glar seemed not to be hit. But he stopped
for an instant and fired three shots from his
revolver at the pursuers.
Then he turned again. He scran I -'xi up
the railway embankment as quickly as a
cat. and went down the other side. The
railway is fenced in by a barbed wire fence.
The burglar throw his body against these
barbs, and with such impulsion that he
broke the fenco down. He must have
mangled himself dreadfully, but he kept
right on, making for a strip of marshy
meadow that lay between the Raritan river
aud the railway.
No one thought he would try to escape by
the river. The water was very high anil
running in a rapid current, that carried
driftwood and loosened cakes of ice along at
great speed. But that was his plan for es
cape. He was going to swim the river, not
withstanding the ice, the current, and the
cold. Somors was right at his heels, rush
ing as rapidly as possible through the
marshy meadow. On the brink of the river
the burglar stopped a moment. Ho tore off
a pair of rubbers which were on his feet,
and then threw them at Somers, saying.
“Come on, now. Follow me if you dare,”
and then plunged into the river. He struck
out for the opposite shore, and his vigorous
strokes and the strong current carried him
in a moment well in toward the other side.
Then Somers heard him groan. Either
the chill or his wounds had disabled him.
aud the next moment Somers saw his head
which had been bobbing up aud down with
the current disappear, while his hat floated
away with the current.
The rest of the pursuers had seen all this
from the railroad track, and they hurried
down to the bridge and crossed over it.
Thus they expected to catch the burglar
when he reached the opposite shore.
But they waited there in surprise that he
did not come, and they called at the two
men who stood on the bridge to head him
off if ho decided to go dowu with the cur
rent; but these men said he had not passed.
Then one of them saw the hat, and was
about to shoot at it, but the other begged
him not to. “Don’t shoot him in the water.”
he said, and his companion put down his
Homers came up and said that the man
had gone down, and so the party walked up
and down both banks and even searched the
country far and near until daylight. But
they saw no more of the burglar who went
down under the ice cakes.
Some of the party remained at the store
to capture the other burglar. A man’s
head was cautiously put from the door
whence the other burglar had made his rush
to escape. And when the eyes in that head
saw a double-barrelled gun aimed right at
them and heard the man who held the gun
say, “Put up your hands!” he made no pro
test whatever, hut yielded quickly, and only
asked that the firearm that was aimed at
him be put down.
He held his hands up and pleasantly sub
mitted to a search. A small revolver and a
few postage stumps, a little money and some
cigars wore all the searchers found.
In half an hour he was committed to jail
bv a magistrate who was route. 1 out of Bed
for this purpose, and in a few hours was in
the jail at Somerville, having treated the
officer who took him there'to some cigars
which it was afterward discovered he had
stolen from that officer’s store.
Ho said his name was William Rockett, a
Bowery lodging house frequenter, and he
had niet the man who disappeared in the
river in the Coliseum lodging house. The
man had suggested the burglary, and seem
ed to know jusi whore to go in Bound
Brook. He knew this man only as Frank
Wilson. They made attempts to enter sev
eral other stores iwfore they broke into the
post office. j |

“Winkie," Conover, by the identification
of a picture of him by the other burglar,
then the detectives said that he had escaped,

MARRIED WOMEN’S NICKNAMES.
The Odd Way3 in Which the Idlers at
Saratoga Address Their Wives.
Mom the Nero York Sun.
Saratoga, Aug. 27. —When a lounger on
the veranda of one of the big hotels at this
place heals a man say, “Hurry up, little
one,” or “Come along, birdie,” he may be
sure that it is a husband addressing his wife
and that she is enormously fat. Apparently
all husbands of fat women address their
wives with diminutives, if not with nick
names fit only for small women or little
girls. “Daisy,” “Birdie," and “Baby”
appear to be the pet names most
favored by the husbands of mam
moth women. In this haven of con
jugal rest, for Saratoga is distinc
tively for married couples and has less con
veniences and attractions for lovers than
aiiy place in America, one gets a deep
knowledge of the wavs of wedded folk.
This matter of nicknames for wives is one
of the most interesting studies. To pursue
this branch of learning it is necessary to sit
for an hour or two, on any afternoon, while
the music is playing in the inner garden
either of the United States Hotel or of the
Grand Union. All the rest the married
couples will do for the student. They will
talk unguardedly in his hearing, and he wilt
soon be able to classify the couples and the
pet names, for certain names go with cer
tain sorts of couples as infallibly as pie goes
with supper in New England.
The very swell and exquisite young mar
ried men, who dress vainly aud seek to give
the impression that they belong to the F. C.
D. C., dance at Delmonico’s and know' all
the fellows who have yachts, call their
wives with monosyllables, such as Puss,
Chris, Hen, Fan, Loo, Tot. There seems to
be only one marked exception in the list.
You often hear one of these wives called
“Popsy.” There are two Popsies at the
States and there is one at the Union. Oddly
enough the fathers of these same fellows,
men so well kept that you can’t say whether
they are 45 or 65, are fond of drawing out
the full names of their helpmeets, as
for instance, “Come heah, Francese,”
or “Now, my deali Eleanor, you
must have a wrap.” Equally fixed
is the rule that thin ana sickly women, dys
peptics. neuralgics, and the like, are
addressed by their liege lords as wife,
madame, or Mrs. Thompson, Mrs. Brown,
or whatever. The invalid husbands,
and all the prim and precise ones as well,
address their better halves as “my dear.”
This, by the way, is the established custom
with the Hebrews, though they usually are
heard to pronounce the words “mine teer. ”
The clergymen seem to have united upon
the word “mother” as a title for their wives,
and the men who are so common here, and
who seem to be wrapped up in an only girl
or boy, call their wives “ma."
Other nickname* resist classification thus
far, though perhaps the key to all can be
found by diligent application. There is no
end to the Dollies aud the “my loves,” while
one hears a miscellaneous lot of passages by
addressing their comrades as “Pet.” One
plump little wife is gradually becoming
known to everybody in one of the hotels as
“Sugar,” the nickname her husband calls
out assiduously and loudly all day in the
parlors and on the promenades. The temp
tation for others to call her Sugar is grow
ing painful. She is not the only feminine
confection, for, at the States, there is a
dimpled brunette who answers to her hus
band as “Sweetv;” and yesterday a
prim-looking wife, somewhat the
shape of a board, was ad
dressed as “Sweetness” before all the
crowd at the spring in Congress Park. It
may be an oversight, but there does not
seem to be a “darling” in town. A ruddy
faced, corpulent man of 40, who looks as if
he was born and brought up in the Stock
Exchange, always addresses his wife as
“Precious,” and in the same hotel a hus
band, who appears to hail from the West,
replies to his wife with “Yes, nigeon,” “All
right, pigeon,” and so on. As it happens,
there is something about the wife’s appear
ance or manner, or perhaps it is her shape,
that renders this oduost of nicknames ]iecu
liarly appropriate. The young fellows who
are spending their time in pulling the down
on their upper lips we fond of pointing out
“Sugar” to all their acquaintances, and in
another week they will doubtless add
“Pigeon” to their stock of fun.

The Air Line train, which reached At

who wero dressed in model attire, and whose
faces were concealed by heavy black veils,
lawyer Walker was in waiting to receive
them. He helped them into a hack, got into

Jailor Poole had been informed in advance
of the coming of the ladies, and he prepared
a place in which they could meet the pris

several chairs had been placed in it. In ad
dition to these chairs there was a small bed -
stead in the cell. It was nearly 2 o’clock
when the two ladies and the lawyer wore
conducted into this apartment. ’ Shortly
afterward Jailer Poole opened Woolfolk s
cell, and let him out. He was taken to the
front cell, and everybody except the pris

withdrew. When Wolfolk’s sister met him
she did not kiss him. Neit her did he offer
to kiss her and his aunt. They did not even
