THE FIRE W VTER FIENDS.
Ji ,TCIENI' AND MODERN BARTEND
The Glorious and Glowing Being: of

Saloon-Keeper, Can Tell a Good Bar

[Copyrighted 18ft, 1
New York, Nov. s.—The bartend >r of
to-day is not the glorious and glowing be
:ng that he once was. He may have a politi
cal! pull, but lie exerts it in a quiet anil un
ostentatious way, and if Jue gets into poli
tics it is because he has money outside of
the bar. Millionaires may be pointed out
all over New York to-day with the re

But twenty-five yam's hence it will not
V possible to say so, except in very rare in
stances. In olden times the man who stood
behind the bar usually owned the business in
<he course of two or three years, and the
erstwhile proprietor spent the remainder
of his life in more or less painful poverty,
wondering bow the metamorphosis was ac
complished, while his former bartender
• oiled in a luxury of sudden wealth. But
the system of checks, bell punches, stop
watches, red flags, mechanical detectives,
Argus-eyed inspectors, and other vigorous
friends of truth and honesty have reduced
the bartender of to-day to a minimum.
There are only three or four big barrooms
left in the whole city of New York w here
bartenders have complete control of the
linances and are trusted implicitly by their
I once saw Stewart, who is perhaps one
of the most successful saloon keepers in
New York, and who has recently died,
tand near the door of bis place intently
watching one of the men who stood behind
the bar. The most impressive-looking of
them all was a dimly-built man, with a
coning blonde moustache. It was ho that
Stewart stared at. The bartender was mix
ing a cocktail. After lie had finished and
wrval the drinks, Stewart, who was a
wizened up little man without any preten
sions to haughtiness or impressiveness,
walked up and beckoned the bartender to
come to him. The man sprang forward
alertly. It happened that he and Stewart
lalked within an inch of my elbow, and I
lizard their conversation.
‘How long have you been here?” asked
the famous saloon keeper shortly.
“Two days, Mr. Stewart.”
"Who recommended you?”
‘ ‘Go up to the desk and draw a week’s
par and get out.”
l’he man turned a shade paler and turned
inquiringly at his boss. Stewart answered
bis look testily with:
•‘Oh, there is nothing particularly the
matter with you, excepting that vou are
always twisting your moustache and pulling
your face, and there is no customer of mine
wants a man to mix his drinks who is al
ways pulling his moustache. I would ask
you to stay here and let your face and
whiskers alone, except that we are not
teaching men how to be bartenders here.”
j vsgMis., 'LwV.'tocoUO
It is an admirable illustration of the care
and drill that is now exercised over the men
"ho now mix drinks for New Yorkers. The
bartender bus indeed fallen into a place that
'ery closely resembles that of the waiter,
and, as very young men are being con
stantly pressed into the service and pushed
forward because they are quick, wide awake
and intelligent, the bar is no longer the
lostrum for politics, horse racing and gam
bling talk. There was a time when a man
who knew a bartender familiarly enough to
'■all him “Billy,” “Jimmy” or “Tonniv
or whaterever his name might be, and who
received a nod in return, felt so elated and
aristocratic that he was bound to got drunk
off-hand to prove his appreciation of the
favors. An old-time bartender with his
vast and ruffled shirt front, his large din
mond pin, muggy Angers and elaborately
curled hair exists no more. He was a man
who knew it all. When he deigned to join
in conversation it was invariably with a
mysterious air that forced respect from the
most ribald and careless of listeners. His
usual formula was:
“Well, gents, you can talk and talk about
t bat there matter until you get black in the
face, but I happen to be on the inside edge
meself. A certain n rty, which I don’t care
to mention his name here in public, has giv
me the level facte in the matter, and if it
don’t go any further, I jest as leave let you
know how it stands.”
Then would follow a cautious and care
less relation of v/hat matters really were in
a Bunsby-like secretiveness by the barten
der. In point of fact, lie was a delicious
old humbug, and about the only thing he
really knew was how to make a strong
cocktail and gat her in the returns.
A man who had achieved considerable
fame in the vicinity of Wail street as a
roncocter of mixed drinks was transferred
to the Hoffman House not long since and
put behind the gorgeous bar. It was the
ambition of his life to get there, and he
was so elated at his success that he was more
or less nervous and perturbed on his first
arrival. It chanced that he had just put his
apron on when a distinguished party of politi
1 ians strolled in. talking confidentially about
the recent apointiaents. In the party were
several famous men, and as the bartender
glanced around from face to face he was
more or less impressed. Commissioner Hess,
who was in the party, waved his hand and
“See what the gentlemen will take,” and
then went on with his conversation with the
men who stood next to him.
The bartender asked several men in rapid
succession, and they indicated their prefer
ence in the usual curt manner. Finally he
leaned over the bar toward a man with
" hite hair and a black moustache, who
stood talking earnestly. For a long while
he could not catch the man's ear. It was
lift ward X. Stokes, the proprietor of the
Hoffman House. The bartender spoke to
him a second time, and, finally raisiDg bis
I a ;. - —t 1H ••*•
** QnMws*v."?rvcM*. •
“'What will j-ou have, Col. Fisk?"
Ntokes whirled around as if he had been
*not, and a dead silence fell on the group,
hile the bartender flushed and caught his
breath. He had been thinking of the Fisk
otokes assassination and it ran in his head
so long that he got the two names mixed,
ror an instant Stokes did not speak, then
he turned abruptly and walked out of the
barroom, while the others pretended to con
tinue their conversation, but all the while fol
lowing with their eyes the retreating form
of Stokes. An instant later the Superin
dent rushed exeiteely into the place, glanced
[or a moment hurriedly around, went be
hind the bar, stepped to the new barten
der and two men nastily disappeared. An
other bartender stepped forward, and a
moment later Stokes returned to the group
poking and as calm and serene as ever.
But that bartender never put foot in the
Hoffman Houso again.
Men very often get sincerely attached to
'he bartenders who minister to their wants
year after year in their favorite drinking
places. There it a man m the Everett House
• wno ha; held his position for twenty-five
years. Nobody believes that the bar could
exist for a day without him. In the same
way the Gilsey House bar is presided over
by a respectful, quiet and amiable artist
named Butler, who is a model of careful
ness and intelligence. If a man walks into
ti:<> l: v House and tells Butler exactly
how in- likes a cocktail to-day, and does not
happen in again for five years, the barten
will make him a cocktail precisely siniilru in
every respect to the first one. There is no
check upon hitn, and h is trusted by the
big hotel implicitly. There are lots of local
favorites of this sort, but they are gradually
dying out. The proper bn tender of to-day
approaches as nearly to n'.uchine-like ac
curacy as possible. Men drink in great
haste and have little time for conversation.
The less obtrusive the bartender the nearer
he approaches perfection.
MRS. LANGTRY'S SUCCESS.
The Way She Manages to Keep up
New York, Nov. 5. —It is a curious fact
that of the thousands who annually flock to
lay their tribute of admiration and their
fl 50 at the feet of Mrs. Langtry in New
York, not 1 per cent, have succeeded in
truly analyzing her continued popularity.
Ask any one of a dozen people you may
meet during the day or evening, and it is al
most a safe bet that their replies will cor
respond within the sixteenth of an inch.
They will tell you three parts of her draw
ing power consist of the fascination
which her beauty has for men and one
part in her recently developed histrionic
Those who tell you are wrong. If they
do not live in New York the error is natural
and pardonable, but in New York it is in
excusable. Here is her home, and here she
appears as the woman quite as prominently
as the actress. Her life is no mystery to
her neighbors, and the true key to" her
“wearing quality” is her success with
women. In face of the notorious feminine
jealousy of personal beauty in their own sex
—except such as t hey may find in the mir
ror—this assertion may seen absurd. But it
is true, nevertheless.
Follow Mrs. Langtry on an afternoon s
shopping tour and see if I am not right.
She enters a fasnionable milliner's ou Fifth
avenue (she gets all her hats at one place).
Her carriage, with the awfully pompous
English coachman on the box and flic
awfully diminutive but equally dignified
and bebuttoned footman at the door, ‘ tends
at the curb. The half dozen women of
fashion in the place glance around as she
appears. With perfect ease she passes among
them and toan attendant gays in a conversa
“Tell Miss that Mrs. Langtry is here,
This lady appears and is greeted with a
cordiality almost like that or a sister. But
no gush. Then the work of choosing two or
three becoming hats begins. No impatience,
no disgust, no hauteur is visible. With a
skill which is peculiarly her own she wifi
succeed, before leaving the store, in getting
the frank opinion of every lady present
on each hat considered before making a de
This is all done in the most offhand and
polite manner possible, as though she should
“Now, we are all here on common ground
and know each other’s weaknesses in the
matter of personal adornment. Of course
we are not acquainted, but it’s all in
formal, don’t you know—just like being on
shipboard—so tell me the truth.”
Of course this isn’t what she says with her
tongue, but with her manner. With a
monosyllabic appeal she draws out each
without apparently intending to do any
thing of the sort, When she has finished she
sits comfortably down upon a lounge ard
has a nice little fivwmimute conversation
with the head of the concern.
Then with a smile she re-enters her car
riage and is gone, and every lady in the
place, including the employes, goes home
and declares at dinner that Mrs. Langtry is
the most charming woman she has ever met,
despite the scandal mongers.
And then, you know, each woman feels
that she had a hand in the purchase of those
liats, and she insists ou going to the thea
tre the very next evening to see if Lang
try wears one of them.
This programme and this effect is repro
duced at the Lily’s dressmaker’s, at her shoe
maker's and at all her shopping points—and
nearly all her shopping is done in New York
Her secret is this: She appreciates fully
her own beauty and all that it is worth, and
will freely discuss it in seeking garments
which sets it off—but this she does in such a
confidential yet frank manner as to disarm
an enemy at one stroke.
An illustration of this occurred within a
few feet of me the other day:
“Do j’ou know,” said Mrs. Langtry, “why
some of my photographs in pi oflle are so
pretty while others are not? Well, I will
solve the riddle for you. Millais, the paiu
ter, was frank enough to tel! me in London
onee that while one side of my face was
beautiful the other, he tnought, narrowly
escaped being ugly. I suppose other peo
ple have thought so, too, but they never
It isn’t every pretty woman Who is pretty
enough to talk that way.

Artists in Hiding Thirty Years.
From the New Verb t Vorld.
Cincinnati, G., Nov. 1. —Thirty j’ears
ago the sudden and mysterious disappear
ance of Edward Oritland and George
Bryce, rising young artists of this city,
caused the greatest sensa on. Nothiug was
ever heard of them unti to-day and they
were supposed to i.ve committed
suicide. The Critlands ~rere well
known and Bryce had attracted
some attention by his work. Young Crit
land had spent much time upon a large
painting of a dog. It was placed on ex
hibition at the Mechanics’ Institute, and
won the most flattering notices. The artist
was completely wrapped up in his work,
and when one day a vandal ruined it the
artist became frantic with rage. This was
succeeded bj’ intense grief. He left the city
for a few days, and on his return he met
Bryce, to whom he related his woes. Bryce,
too, had a grievance. He was possessed of
the idea that ho was not his reputed father’s
The two men resolved to forsake the
world and devote their life to art. Without
a good-by they disappeared and, after seven
vears’ wandering, returned to Cincinnati
and secured n lonely rear room at No. 9
East Third street. Lack of care and want,
had so changed them that t hey were not
recognised when they occasionally ventured
out. For twenty years thej’ have eked out
a miserable existence in the one room,
painting one picture after another, to be
destroyed and replaced by a better one.
Thev picked up money for the pluinest food
and'for paint by etching and munual labor.
Quite by accident an old man, who knew
one of them years ago, stumbled into their
room and a series of circumstances revealed
their identity. The Rev. Mr. Robertson,
pastor of the Third Presbyterian Church,
an art connoisseur, and William Wiswell,
an art dealer, have called at the room.
Both say some of the paintings are master
pieces, and will make Critlaud and Bryce
famous. They refuse ti sell at any price,
reject all overtures to return to their fami
lies, and consider the visits to them an im

AN INTERESTING CHARACTER.
D. E. Betton is His Name and Ho Lives
From the Metro pi ((jo.) Telegraph.
“Yes, sir; I was a classmate at West Point
with Jefferson Davis.”
Seated In one of the arcade chairs at the
Hotel Lanier, on Saturday, was an old man,
neatly dressed in a brown suit, and having
the appearance of a man who had retired
from business on a competency and was
taking life easily. He was quite a small
man, Ills ruddy" face ornamented with tliin
nisli gray burnsides and a crop uuder his
pointed chin. He sat in the chair as if en

twinkling eyes of gray resting upon every
face as if he was looking for some familiar
You would never suspect that he was B‘J
years old, for he had been treated much
better" by time than the illustrious man
he claimed for his classmate. True, his
hair and beard was almost as white, but
lie had a firmer step, and there was a glow
of health in his faee that Mr. Davis does not
“When was that?” asked a reporter who
overhead the remark.
“That was in 1824. We were in the same
class at West Point, and he was one of the
brightest boys that ever went away from
Mississippi. He was an exceedingly hand

handsome form and mischievous and
full of life, like all Southern boys
He graduated in IB‘ls and in the same

“Where did you next see Mr. Davis?”
“1 kept up with his career, but did not
see him until 1848, while ho was our United
States Senator. He was among the passen

river. We had traveled from New Orleans
together and he was on Ins way to Washing
ton. One day on the trip I was in conver

who was also a passenger, and he spoke of
Col. Davis. While we were thus engaged,
Col. Davis, whom Iliad failed to recognize,
was walking up and down the dock talking
with James Calhoun, brother of Patrick
Calhoun, I asked the Governor what gentle
men it was talking to Mr. Calhoun. He re
■pliedthat it was Col. Davis. Jeff Davis? I
asked It was Jeff Davis.he replied. When he
had finished with Mr. Calhoun I went up and
spoko to him, but he said nothing until we
hud reached the head of the lx>at, and then
he said, ‘l’m trying to locate you,’ I then
told him who I Was and he seemed delighted
to see me. I saw him after that at
Montgomery, and several times during the
