WILLIAM’3 STOMACH. H!s Mother Said it Would Keep Him Poor; Ho Thinds it 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 waste here.’ “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 ence. “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 tune. So, you see, my mother was wrong nlxiut this stomach of mine, which I have treat, vl kindly ever since in grateful re nienibranceof what it did for mo.” A MAN WltTa MEMORY. Tba Courage and Coolness of a Con federate Spy. From the tfeie Yl&lc Alls. Just before Hbernmn advanced on his Deorgta campaign a man suppoxsl to be a * on federate spy, wu one day arrested iu a 1 nion lump, lie was ill Federal uniform, but bis look and Iwiimv were nuinutaka- , Wjr bvuiLem. Hu uUuiXd to buioua to a I 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 asked. “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, astonished. “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 my life.” “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 pany?” , “Four months, sir. I came down as are cruit from Pekin.” “Who is your Orderly Sergeant?” “Sergt. White, sir.” “Who are your commissioned officersJ” "Capt. Morton, First Lieut. Green and Lieut, Davis. The latter is home on a fur lough.” "How many men in the company?” “Fifty-eight, sir.” “Who are your tent mates?” “Oscar Jackson, Thomas Parker and John Pridgeon.” “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 string. “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 name.” 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: A....1d... 27 1.... “ ...9,000 c....“ ....i.eoo 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 paper read: “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, Swift said: “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 spy.” 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 the General. “No, sir.” "Isn’t he a member of your company?” “No, sir.” “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. You are 32 years old. You have a brother Ben in company E. Hear me call the roll of our company: Allbright, Allison. An drews, Arkwright, Bement, Beamer, Bost wick, Carter, Corliss, Costigan, Cummer ford—” 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 asleep. "I—l never saw him before,” he finally stammered, “but he must belong to the comtMiny.” ‘“res,’ ho certainly must,” added the Cap tain. “Well, take him back to camp with vou. Sergeant,” observed the General. “Hold on, though; didn’t we send for his tent mates?” “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 way. 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 say: “Gentlemen, it’s a d—n fine morning to start on such a journey as mine.” •Buohu-Palba.” Quick, complete cure, all annoying kid noy, bladder end urinary disease*..

THE MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1887. 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 been lost. “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 moniously. , “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.” PAIN KILLER. rhoier&Morbus fVajnps I °l‘ e j|iant\oe^ Complaints ||YSenterY J7ll Cured by# teaspoonful of Perr/David?m flier in a little Pfilpor Sugar and Water All Druggists Sell it. jo SEEDS.

I have tried a number of physicians, oat without receiving any perma nent benefit. Among the nnmber were one or two specialists. The medicine tncy applied wax like fire to the sore, cansing intense pain. I saw a statement in the papers telling what S. S. S. had done for others similarly afflicted. I procured some at once. Before 1 had used the second bottle the neighbors could notice that my cancer was healing np. My general health had been had for two or throe years—l ban a backing congn ana spit Dlood contin ually.
