AN INCIDENT IN THE l’A HR
WHAT A NEW YORK BROTHER SAW
IN THE EARLY MORNING.
Something About Cash Boys and Girls
—The Invention that Makes their Ser
vices Unnecessary How a Smart
Mechanic Made a Fortune.
New York, Nov. Two man who
had leen playing poker all night emerged
from a bachelor apartment house on lower
Fifth avenue yesterday morning and stood
irresolutely on the sidewalk. They were
fashionably and correctly dressed, and per
fectly suave in manner, though they had
both lost money and wero sadly in need of
sleep The elder was a well-known man
about town, a Captain of militia and a good
fellow generally. The other was the rather
dissipated younger son of a wealthy New
“Ai*e you going down town now?* asked
the Captain, as he buttoned his glov*
and flicked a speck of lint from las coat
sleeve. , ,
"Nope’’said the other, carelessly. ‘l’m
not due till 10:30, and it would never do to
startle them by arriving so far ahead of
time. It isn’t 8 yet, wit f'
".lust 8,” said the Captain, looking at his
‘ Well,” said the other, “it’s no use going
to sleep, for a short nap only breaks me up
for the day after being up all night; so we’d
lietter go to breakfast.”
“Ough!” shuddered the Captain. “I
wouldn’t encounter the smel I of a restaurant
for anything on earth now.”
A bright idea struck the younger man and
“I’d tell you what we’ll do, Jim. If yon re
game for a walk, we’ll start and foot it from
here up to the park, and breakiast at the
restaurant there on the terrace, right in the
open air. It’s a good three miles, and we
can get a little frozen absinthe on the cor
ner just as ail appetizer before we start.
You'll feel as fit as a Addle afterwards."
Five minutes later they started, und the
clerks and salesmen who were hurrying
down town encountered two well-dressed,
pallid and energetic New Yorkers pounding
away to the northward with all the energy
in the world.
At 8:30 the two men sat on the sunny side
of a terrace, with a beautiful bit of wood
laud scenery stretched out below them, fac
ing a table covered with snowy linen. They
drank strong tea, ate eggs, Windsor herring
and triiie coked with chopped peppers and
other biting and appetizing vegetables.
About 9 o’clock they started in a leisurely
way with lighted cigars toward the en
tr.mce to the tirk. They had just crossed a
small stone bridge when the Captain called
the attention of his companion to the bridle
path which ran under the bridge and
through a heavy thicke'. of woods.
"Good place to meet a girl on the quiet,”
he said, shortly.
The other man smiled significantly and
nodded his head. Suddenly his face grew
pale, his jaw dropped, and his eyebrows
came together in a scowl. His companion
stared at him for a moment in silence, fol
lowed the direction of his eyes, and saw a
benutiful girl on horseback just in the turn
of the I ridle path above the bridge. She
lean- and back on her horse, resting one hand
on the bea-t’s hack and looked With extra
ordinary earnestness at her companion—a
square jawed, powerfully-built and hand
some English groom. The mistress was
leaning so < lose to the man that, their faces
were not three inches apart. His face was
a remarkable one in many respects. It was
perfectly colorless and smooth shaven. The
eyes were big, black and deep set. The man
talked with the impetuous!ty of a lover, and
the earnestness of the two loiterer.; in the
bridle path vva- so pronounced that they
were utterly unconscious of time or plsiv.
The younger of the two men oil the bridge
said halt huskily:
•‘That’s my sister taking her morning
ride. We’ve chanced along at exactly the
There was a moment’s silence.
“Can I lie of any service to you f* asked
the Captain, softly.
“Thanks, no.” said the other, shortly. “I’ll
tak- the little fool home.”
“Don’t frighten her,” said the Captain,
squeezing the boy’s arm paternally. “That’s
r nasty looking nag she’s on.”
The younger man nodded and the Cap
tain strode on a few paces and_stood in the
brush waiting in case his assistance was
On the bridge the white-faced brother
stood and bit his lips as he watched the
tableau. Pres tly he struck his cane with
terrific for*, i across the stone balustrade,
breaking it into a hundred pieces, and shout
ed his sister’s name in a voice that was husky
and hoarse. The pair started and rode slow
ly forward. The groom dismounted from
his horse and the brother stepped for
ward and dealt him a stunning blow in the
face. The groom reeled but stood aside
with his hands clenched. The other man
—he was scarcely more than a boy in years
—looked at him quietly for a minute, bound
ed into the saddle of the groom’s horse, and
cantered off with his sister riding beside
him. She had not uttered a word. The
boy had not even looked at her. The gi*ooni
stalked away and the Captain who had seen
it all sli- tigged his shoulders, lighted u fresh
cigar and pursued his way tranquilly down
town. Blakely Haul.
The problem of how to sell goods is an im
portant. cine to the average merchant, but to
tiie New York vendor of goods the disposi
tion ot the proceeds of the sale is a matter
of almost as great moment, it costs a big
store at least 82,500 a vear and no end of
anxiety to hire cash boys. These youths
command in New York a salary of 82 to $3
r week, and cash girls, who are deemed
more steady and reliable by some mer
chants, get tiie same salary. About five
years ago a poor mechanic of tiie metropolis
stepped into a dry goods store to make some
purchases for his wile and was kept waiting
a long time uy a tardy cash lioy. Ho con
ceived the idea of au automatic system of
ca-h delivery by bails rolling over tracks of
wires. He work s! out his invention, which
was linrt tried in a Chicago store, it proved
successful, nut money wu-needed to develop
it, and tin* mechanic had u> enlist men of
means to whom he gave a two-thirds inter
est in the patent. They were shrewd busi
ness men, however, and refused to sell tiie
patent to any firm, but rented the right ut
an average rate of 818 a wire per year. The
scheme proved so successful that tin* inven
tor now receives an annual income of $150,-
000. His partners are a syndicate of Boston
A poor floor walker in a New York store
saw the workings of the cash delivery sys
tem, and made up his mind that it * could
improve upon it to tho extent of lorwnrding
not only the cash but the goods purchased
by the customer to a central point hi tiie
store. His invention consisted of a basic, t
in which was placed tho articles selected by
tbe customer and a puree containing the
purchase*money. The lm.wt rushes along
over wires to the cashier's desk, where tiie
good 4 are wrapped up, and alter tho change
as been put into the purse sent bac’. over
the wires to the salesman's counter. This
invention mail" a fortune for tiie man u o
devised it, and one New York firm reports
that it saves them at least $2,500 a year as
compared with their outlay when they hud
to hu*e ca ll boys.
Nevertheless, the cash hoy and tiie cash
girl are still popular with several of tiie
large metropolitan dry gixxl* firms. Three
of tho largest stares on Broad wav employ
cash toys, one of them having colored tads,
with blue goid-triiinned uniforms. Two ex
tensive Sixth uvenue retail dry goods houses
and one on Fourteenth strevt have cash
girls. At one of the Fourtet nth si,re t.~t-.res
the girls are uniformed in blue Mother Hub
bard drf*<-s. It ts claimed that they are
more trust worthy limn tiie boys and more
prompt in doing their work.
One Six t iio venue flrnt that hns a desire to
•ample all systems of ca.h delivery hires
girls for the departments whore the liner
fabrics of women's wear are sold, boys for
the other departments, atid in addition to
these the pneumatic system of cash deliv
ery. The latter is the most rapid method
known of dispatching money to the cashier.

The difficulty of controlling cash boys had
as much as much os anything to do with the
invention of a mechanical system of cash
delivery. It is necessary to employ not only
the boys but also a man to control them. A
gentleman iu this perplexing line of busi
ness who is at work in a ,Sixth avenue store
was asked if his cash boys did as good ser
vice as a mechanical system of delivery
would. Before he had time to answer lie
was attracted by a great commotion out in
the store. Two boys were playing “catch”
with a bundle of goods while the customer
was patiently awaiting the coining ot the
package. When the master of the toys had
qmeted this riot he returned and said;
"Cash girls or boys are more expensive and
troublesome than any other system of hand
ling goods ami money, but many conserva
tive firms still retain them. Not long ag *
our cash boys went on a strike for an in
crease of 25c a week and also demanded
that they be allowed 30 minutes more for
luncheon than we had given them. H e
hi roil other boys, and then the lads that they
had supplanted began a system of persecu
tion that made the lives of the newcomers
burdensome. I don't believe that a strike
of an equal number of grown men ever
made nr •re trouble. Finally, we put iu an
automatic system of cash handling and did
away with boys altogether.”
Amos J. Ccmmings.
Some of Them are Surprisingly Profi
cient With the “Gloves.”
New York, Nov. 12.—Extremes prover
bially meet, and the fact is exemplified
anew in the love of boxing which unites in
a sort of fellowship the gentlemanly broker
and the professional "bruiser." Many of
the brokers of Wall street and elsewhere in
New York are surprisingly proficient with
the gloves. They take lessons from “pro
fessors” and froth awkwar I novices who put
forward theirright “duke ’ as a guard, then
lieoome dangerous antagonists who have
learned to put up their left as a guard and
to strike blows with their right which xug
gest those of a Roman battering rum. Rome
of them used to take lessons in fisticuffs in
their elegant Wall street offices from broken
nosed and broken-down ex-members of the
24-foot ring at $5 a lesson, and in time they
became as expert and dangerous as Chester
S. Lord and tils staff of .S’im reporters, who
scientifically pommel each other at ab ut
2:30 o’clock every morning or just after the
paper has gon-to press. M;;nyof the broker
are members of athletic clubs and they me
the gloves there. It Is no longer safe for a
bully to attack a well-dressed gent leman, or
even what is termed a dude, on the supposi
tion that he cannot ‘use his hands.” Some
of the roughs of the Sixth ward have had
this momentous fact clearly demonstrated.
Ttxe champion boxer of the Stock Ex
change is Albert V. De Goicouria. He is
also one of its handsomest men. He is a
Cuban by birth, but was educated in New
York, and is a thorough American in tastes
and ideas as well as in a complete mastery
of the language. He is broad-shouldered,
deep-chested and in every respect, power
fully built, of about the medium height and
weighs 175 pounds. He has a long reach
anil strikes a blow which even that redoubt
able bruiser, John L. Sullivan, might fee!
called upon to notice. He once overcame
“Prof.” Mike Donovan, the Instructor in
boxing to the Athletic Club. Mr.
De Goicouria lias an arm which
athletes admire and a plaster
cast of it is displayed at the Athletic Club
house. He married the youngest daughter
of the late- William Wall, once Mayor of
Williamsburg, and a millionaire rope man
ufacturer. He Is an uncle by marriage of
Barry W r all, the exquisite King ot the
Dud’s, who, by the way, is a very gentl
manly and apparently harmless young fel
low, Young Howell Osborn, son of tbe late
millionaire broker, is considered quite skill
ful with the gloves—mere so than in specu
lation, which he lia-s abandoned, receiving a
foi tune from his mother on consideration of
so doing. The number of Stock Exchange
members who are skillful with the b edng
gloves is too large to mention; many are
members of the New York Athletic Club,
and practice nightly.
The champion of the Produce Exchnnge
is Herman Oelrichs, of tiie wealthy family
of shipping merchants. lie owns the yacht
Hiidegarde and is a member of the New
York Yacht Club. He is about 45 years of
age, well knit and powerfully built, and
weighs 200 pounds. His admirers ny he
strikes a blow suggestive of one from a
mule’s hind limb. Walter Munn, a son of a
wealthy freight broker, is tin opponent ;hut
tew on the Produce F.xchauge can mi-cess
fullv meet. S. Morris Prvor, the stock
broker, a cousin of Gen. Roger A. Pryor,
who appeared for the Anarchists G'f re tbe
United States Supreme Court, u-ed to be
one of the best boxers in the Racquet
and made the boys there feel the might of
liis puissant arm full many n time and
oft, but he is getting too stout now to keep
up his former reputation. James P. Moore,
nf the Consolidated Exchange, mav per
haps be consideied its champion boxer,
though there are several others who might
be disposed to dispute that place. He is
young and wealthy, and is associated in oil
Sjieeulatiou with Joseph Craig, tiie big oner*
ator of Pittsburg. Mr. Moore t- a member of
both the New York and Brooklyn Athletic
Clubs, and when he puts on tho gloves and
faces an antagonist there is a decidedly ani
mated scuffle, with Moore invariablv' forc
ing the fighting, aud doing up his victim in
a manner that would have made John C.
[ Heenan or Tom Sayres smile. C. J. Quack
burner, of the same Exchange, is a heavy
hammer thrower and tug-of war man at
the rope. He weighs 225 pounds, is tall und
splendidly* pro[>oi*tioiid. and is considered
\ the Hercules of tin* Exchange.
The champion athlete of the Cotton Ex
change is James B. Guest, if broker, who
sometimes sells 10,00(4 bales of cotton in a
day. He ts interested at all kinds of fleid
I s;iorts, is tail, powerfully built, und cun
j give the boys points in boxing ns well as
I other brunnhes of athletic amusements,
j Young Quintt. of the Coffee Exchange,
i who was murdered some time tig i. was one
of the best athletes, Gong especially pro
ficient in wrestling. He was, however, also
| a good boxer. Quiet and courteous in mnn
j t er. well knit and powerful, he seemed tiie
last one tiiat would fall a victim to the re
volver of a littie des|>craiio who Ims Usui
known as u criminal for years. James
Biair, of the stun • Exchange, i<mk Kroons in
I boxing from “Prof.” Wood, and is now one
10l its best boxers. \nd the list of iioxtug
brokers, wito take to athletic sports as a re
lief from the excitement of speculation,
might be greatly extended.

Two years ago I hail the worst ulcer
of my lep I ever saw. It had eaten down
to the bone, and my whole leg below my
knee and my foot were swollen and in
flamed. The bone was swollen and pain
ful, and discharged a most offensive
matter. My physician SRld I had ne
crosis of the bone, and my leg would
tiave to coine off. At this stage I com
menced to take P. P. P. and bathe my
leg with hot eastile soap suds. It began
to improve at once and healed rapidly,
and is to-day a sound and useful leg. I
think P. P. P. is all a man could ask as
a blood purifier, as I have known it to
cure some terrible oases of Syphilis in a
remarkable short time.
P. P. P. contains the lodide of Potassium,
