H!s Mother Said it Would Keep Him
Poor; Ho Thinds it Mu.de Him Rich.
T'fOiii the Philadelphia- XeuiM.
At Cai“‘ May a fow days ago I was sitr
ting with a friend with a tureen of terrapin
between us. My friend is one of the wealth
iest men in Philadelphia, and one of the ex
ceptional fow who in tho pursuit of wealth
has not forgotten how how to enjoy it after
Laving amassed it. I complimented him
upon tho enjoyment lie evidently derived
from the delicacy before him.
"Why,” lie said, with a laugh, "my
ruothor told tut- that my stomach would
always keep me poor.”
Noticing my leak of surprise, he told me
a tale by way of explanation that I propose
repeating to you.
“I was born,” he said, “in Virginia. I
was not one of the F. F. V’s; candidly, I
was only poor white trash. My people were
very poor. The flrst day I ' was sent to
school I was given a small piece of dry
bread for my niiddav lunelieorf. It was not
palatable, and besides, the other boys, as
they munched their apples and gingerbread,
laughed at me. The next day I was again
provided with a small piece of dry bread,
but before I went to school I walked into a
grocery store and said to the proprietor:
"Mr. Brown, mother wants a small sam
ple of your 12c. cheese, and a small sample
of 3'our 14c. cheese. Wrap them up in
separate pieces of paper, please, and write
the price on the outside. The grocer did so,
and then I wont to his rival across the way
and said, as I n-ogneed two small bottles
with which I h..d provided myself: ‘Mr.
Smith, mother wants a sample of your lOe.
molasses and a sample of your 12c. Write
the prices on the bottle, please.’ The grocer
did as I requested, and that day I enjoyed
what to me was a bountiful lunch. Of
course my crime was discovered, and then
it was my mother said to me: ‘William,
your stomach will always keep you poor.’
"When I became of age, tired of the pov
erty and limitations of my surroundings, I
went to New York. When I reached there
I had exactly $4 in my pocket, and I had
not the slightest idea what I was to do for
a living. As I landed at the foot of Cort
landt street I was warmly greeted by a
Hebrew with whom I had been acquainted
in my native town. ‘How much money
have you?” he asked mo excitedly. When
I told him the size of my fortune he looked
rather disappointed, but finally said: ‘I, too,
have $4. vVe will put the two sums
together and I will make your fortune.
Give me your money.’ I did not know
what he was about to do with my
money, hut I handed it forth.
‘Come with me,’ he said. We walked
to 220 Broadway. In a large room was an
excited crowd. There were in it merchants,
clerks, hod carriers, stevedores, clergymen,
negroes, women. My friend handed our
joint capital to a man behind a long counter
and received in return a slip of pa|ier. I
asked no questions, but awaited develop
ments with interest. After some time a
sort of shiver went through the crowd as
a man began writing some figures on a
blackboard. As one after another appeared
my companion became violently excited,
and final!}’ he slapped me on the back and
shouted: ‘We have won. Comeback here
at 3 o’clock.’ I wandered idly about until
that time, and when I retnrned my friend
was awaiting me ‘We were in luck,’ he
said joyously, and handed me S4B. 1 had
won it at policy.
“That small sum of money appeared like
a gigantic fortune to me. I wondered what
I could do with so much. ‘One thing at
least 1 will have,’l said to myseif; ‘I will
have a good dinner.’ You see that un
fortunate stomach of mine was quick to
assert itself. I had heaivl people speak of
the Astor House, and thither I journeyed.
It was in the month of February, and very
cold. I wore no overcoat, ana, to tell the
truth, the texture of my linen was visible
through the seat of my pantaloons. As
I entered the big eating saloon in
the hotel I could plainly see that
the waiters looked upon me contemptu
ously. I knew nothing then of gas
tronibmical delicacies, and so I ordered rare
roast beef and a number of vegetables. The
dinner was shoved at me with scant cour
tesy. I devoured it ravenously, for I was
hungry. I had just finished it when, on the
ledge back of the eating counter. I espied a
Slate of large and luscious strawberries.
ty stomach immediately took possession of
me and forced me to call out to the waiter:
‘Give me a dish of those strawberries.’ The
man turned around and looked at me in
blank amazement. ‘Hurry up,’ I said, in a
loud and lordly voice, ‘I have no time to
“The waiter said not a word, but in a
dazed sort of a way began placing the ber
ries one by one in a small saucer. ‘Oh, don’t
stop to count them,’ I exclaimed in a voice
that could be heard all around me, ‘fill up
the dish.’ I noticed that people were look
ing toward me, and that their glances indi
cated not disdain, but interest and wonder.
It only required ton of the big berries to fill
the dish placed before me. I covered them
with powdered sugar and then poured some
rich cream over them. They were indeed
delicious. In a princely sort of a way I
called for my check when I had flninished.
I was handed two pieces of paste
board. The first oue called for Si 40.
This was for the beef and v'ege-.
tables. The second called for $lO.
"That was for tho straw berries. Great
Jehosaphat; Strawberries $1 each! I must
confess it was a staggerer. 1 felt that the
eyes of every ono in the room were upon me.
and I guess they were. ‘William,’ I said
to myself, you may be a fool, but don’t
Show it. Dou’t lot them know that, after
all, you are nothing but poor white trash!’
I stepped up to the cashier’s desk, picking
my teeth nonchalantly with a toothpick,
and pulled out my S4B. The sum was in
small bills, and made a large roll. I paid
the two checks in a careless sort of wav, and
then I deliberately walked back to where I
had eaten and throw the waiter a silver,
dollar. That capped tho climax. As I
walked out everv waiter in that, place was
satisfied that I was a millionaire in
disguise. Derision had given way to defer
“As I walked forth from the hotel two
men accosted me. In some way, I cannot
tell you how, they made my acquaintance,
and in a short time they had induced me to
acconipuny them into a room where a game
of chance was in progress. They wished
me to play. I protested that I was only a
poor young man with hut a few dollars in
my possession. The men winked slyly at
one another and laughingly poked me in
the ribs. ‘You arc a cute one,’ said one,
‘but I ani not afraid to back you for
$1,000.’ There was some movement in the
game, nnd then it was announced that I
had won* SI,OOO, and that sum was actually
handed mo. Then it was announced to me
that the stakes had be increased to $5,000,
and 1 was requested to produce that sum or
a check for it. Check! I had never hail a
bank ifccount in all my life.
“I quietly said that 1 reckoned I wouldn’t
play any more. Then ensued a rather ex
citing scene. All tho men in tho room
made n combined assault upon me. I was a
lusty, active youngster in those days, and I
succeeded in reaching the street with only a
fmv scratches os the result of the oacounter.
But still I had the SI,OOO. You sou they
were bunco man. I did not know it then,
but I know it now. They hail witnessed
the strawberry incident, anil thought 1 was
an immensely wealthy young countryman.
I kept the monav I had obtained from
them, and it was tbo foundation of my for

A MAN WltTa MEMORY.
Tba Courage and Coolness of a Con
From the tfeie Yl&lc Alls.
Just before Hbernmn advanced on his
Deorgta campaign a man suppoxsl to be a

but bis look and Iwiimv were nuinutaka- ,

regiment in anotliej 1 camp about two miles
a "'ny, and he was sent to the guard house
until his assertions could be verified or dis
proved. I was officer of the day at comp
that day, and that is how I came to learn so
many of the particulars of the affair I am
relating. It was in the camp of a Wiscon
sin regiment that the spy, who gave his
name as George Swift, was arrested. He
had come there ostensibly to visit friends,
but some of the boys had seen him slyly
taking notes, and he had asked .such ques
tions as no private Federal soldier would
have any use for. It was pretty generally
understood that the Confederates were using
every exertion to secure knowledge of
Sherman’s strength and movements, and the
boys had no sooner got the idea that the
stranger was a spy than they gave infor
mation to me and I put him under arrest. I
saw a glance that he waJ of Southern birth.
That was not so much against him, for at
that time we had plenty of Tennessee and
Kentucky men with us.
‘‘What command do you belong to?” I
“The th Illinois,” he replied.
I asked what brigade and division, who
was his Captain and various other things,
and he returned nvhat seemed to be straight
answers to every question. When I asked
who he had come to visit in the Wiscousin
regiment he was lame. He mentioned the
name of a mau no one had over heard of. It
was on this point alone that I held him. A
messenger was at once sent after the Illinois
Captain named, and in about an hour he
appeared. The supposed spy was taken to
the tent of the Brigade General, and as soon
as brought face to face with the Captain he
saluted aud said:
“Capt. Morton, ,the people here seem
to think I am a Confederate spy.”
“And who are you?” queried the Captain,
“Do you ask that?” reproachfully in
quired the man. “Who should I be but
George Swift of your own company?”
“You can’t be. I never saw you before in
“Why, Capt. Morton!”
The two men looked at each other as if
doubting their own senses, and the General
asked of Swift:
"How long have you been with his com
“Four months, sir. I came down as are

“Who is your Orderly Sergeant?”
“Sergt. White, sir.”
“Who are your commissioned officersJ”

Lieut, Davis. The latter is home on a fur

“Who are your tent mates?”
“Oscar Jackson, Thomas Parker and
“Well, Captain?” queried the General, as
he turned to Capt. Morton.
The Captain was clean beat. He was
dead sure that no such man belonged to his
company, and yet the suspect had an
swered every question as straight as a
“I’ll stake my life that I never saw this
jnan before,” the Captain finally answered,
“and I know every man in my company by
The spy was ordered to strip to his shirt,
and for the flrst time his coolness seemed to
desert him. He reproached the Captain for
permitting this indignity, but slowly dis
robed. In one of his boot legs was a pocket,
and in this pocket we found a paper bearing
figures as follows:
1.... “ ...9,000
There were four or five sets of these mem
oranda, running from one to “4d.” When
asked to explain the meaning of them, he
said they were some old examples in alge
bra he had been working out with the boys.
In a few minutes we were satisfied that the
“Artillery in first division, twenty-seven
pieces.” Then “I” stood for infantry and
the “C” for cavalry. We were satisfied,
and yet we were not, for as soon as we
made it out the way I have given it to you,
“General, Capt. Morton does not seem to
be a good baud to remember faces. Will
you please send for the Orderly Sergeant
and my tent mates? If I cant show bv
them that I have been with company G
four months you can order me hung as a
The cool proposition staggered the Gen
eral. Had we discovered the paper in the
man’s pocket instead of his boots he would
have been allowed to walk off. The discov
ery looked suspicious, aud he was ordered
back to the guard house and the persons
sent for. Two hours later he wascoufronted
bv the Orderly Sergeant.
'“Sergeant, do you know this man?”asked
"Isn’t he a member of your company?”
“You are dead sure of this?”
“I am, sir.”
Swift actually grinned as if it were a good
joke, and said:
“Perhaps . I have changed skins with
somebody since I came out of camp this
morning. Sergt. White, your given name
is Thomas. You came from Chicago. Yon
have been twice wounded. Your father
was down to see you last week. You got
love letters from your girl in GaLsburg.

And the mau rattled off forty or fifty
names as fast as he could speak, and got
them all correct, too. The Sergeant looked
from his Captain to the prisoner, and then
pinched himself to see if he was awake or
"I—l never saw him before,” he finally
stammered, “but he must belong to the
‘“res,’ ho certainly must,” added the Cap
“Well, take him back to camp with vou.
Sergeant,” observed the General. “Hold
on, though; didn’t we send for his tent
“They are here, sir.”
“Weil, we’ll seo if they recognize him.”
The three men were brought in and in
side of five minutes Swift was a doomed
man. He had come into camp four or five
days previous, claiming to be looking for a
friend, and had bribed tho boys to let him
into the tent. He mades his excursions
through the division from this point. He
must have been a man with a wonderful
memory, and had gained oceans of infor
mation without seeming to pump anybody.
He tried to brave it out against the throe
men, but other members of the company
were sent for, and his nerve at last gave
A court martial was convened, and four
days after his capture Swift was hung.
While he died game and would admit noth
ing, it was satisfactorily settled that he came
from Johnston’s army, and that he was old
in the business. I was at the foot of the
gallows when he mounted it, and when tho
noose was put over his head I heard him

SPEED ON THE RAIL.
An Engineer Telle Wily It Is Some
times Safer to Travel Fast.
“Of course an accident on a railroad is an
event that can occur any time, uo matter
how great tho precautions are,” said an old
West Shore engineer to a New York Star
man, who found him sittiug on a box in the
depot yard, while a “hostler" was grooming
his “iron steed,” just in from a day’s run.
“I have railroaded many years—at least
twenty—and my experience has been varied
aud at times existing. I have faced death
more than once, aud have averted many
possible disasters by keeping a cool brain
and a firm hand upon the throttle.
“I have run directly through tho jaws of
death to save the lives of the passengers,
whereas had I endeavored to have shunned
the danger ahead many lives would have
“On general principles there Is less danger
in running a train swiftly than slowly. The
reason is Obvious. 1 have run my train —
when behind time —at as high a speed as 05
and 70 miles an hour, and have passed safely
over loose rails that would have throwo my
engine and cal's from the track had I been
running more slowly. The momentum car
ried me over safely.
“An engineer seldom, if ever, thinks of
his personal safety at the expense of those
whose lives are intrusted to his care, but I
have driven ahead at great velocity over
dangers that, had I previously known of
their existence, I would have slowed up.
and, as I before said. I have speeded where
I knew there was danger, and that very
spurt of speed has saved my train.
“Engines will jump the track quicker
over light places at moderate speed than at
express time, and we are as safe in running
around curves at a high rate of speed as
when at twenty miles an hour, in fact,
safer. You see, the incline of a track—or
the rails on one side of a curve being higher
than those opposite—is decidedly necessary
for fast running, and there is no danger in
the elovation. A train carries itself around
a curve with the momentum it has gained
before reaching the point. If an engineer
made a spurt just before or as he reached
the curve, his engiqo could hardly fail to
jump. Again, if brakes are put on hard
and the wheels thus clogged instead of al
lowing the coaches to swing readily and
easily as they reach and round the curve,
the liumping of one car against tho other
might send all off the track.
“The secret of the rapid running around
curves lies in the fact of the rail elevation
on one side, and that the flanges on the
wheels hug the rails with a death grip, thus
making the pressure so great that it is al
most impossible to leave the track uncere
“An engine in good order is as tractable
as a lamb, and apparently endowed with
human intelligence. I can tell you of a cir
cumstance that makes me believe an engine
has human intelligence, locomotively speak
ing. In 1878 I was running on a Western
road, and left Chicago on ooe of the storm
iest nights I ever saw. I had orders to
speed, as I had a theatrical party on board,
and I was thirty minutes late, owing to
some connections with anoi her and inbound
Western train. I pulled out of the
depot in good style and was soon speeding
through the snow flakes at the rate of forty
five miles an hour. I continued at this rate
for about three hours, when suddenly, and
without any apparent reason, my engine
jerked. I at once thought we had struck
something on the track and either had
thrown it aside or had passed over it. In
three minutes more the engine jerked again
and seemed inclined to stop. I was non
plussed. I had carefully examined the ma
chinery in every part during the afternoon
and I knew everything was all right when
we started. A minute later there was another
jerk, and about a couple of minutes
after that another and very vio
lent one. I slowed up, and after
riding very slowly a mile further the
moon came' out brightly. An eighth of a
mile ahead of me was a curve, arid I in
tended to again let out after passing that
goint. Just as we turned the curve iny
roman yelled out: ‘Let her up; something
ahead!” lat once pulled down hard, and,
what do you think, we stopped about thirty
feet from where a tree had been blown
across the track. The train hands, with the
assistance of the male passengers and axes
we had on board, cut the tree so that we
could swing it across the track, aud after
nearly two hours’ delay we started again.
Talk about speed! I made that train almost
fly through the air, and my loss of two and
a half hours’ time in all from Chicago to
Detroit, Mich., was reduced to 53 minutes.
Railroading is not the easiest life in the
world, especially for engineers.”
