quart of whisky. Later he staggered
into a saloon on Marietta street and in
duced the bartender to lend him three
dollars, leaving his packing case, which
contained three suits of clothes and a
quantity of underwear, as collateral.
The money was spent in less time than it
takes to tell the story, and he was left
absolutely without anything on which he
could realize a cent. In this condition he
managed, on the third morning of his
stay in the city, to find his way into the
store of a well-known Whitehall street
merchant who is an intimate friend of his
father. The merchant realized that it
would be worse than folly to let him have
any money, and instructed one of his
clerks to take him to a hotel and keep
watch over him until he sobered up.
While the clerk was out for a minute the
inebriated man took off his shoes and sold
them for a few cents to one of the negro
servants of the hotel. Finally he braced
up and became fairly sober and succeeded
in recovering the articles he had pawned.
The lucid interval did not last very long,
however, and before night he was up
roarously drunk again, and staid in that
condition until he was finally put on the
train and sent home.
The desperate efforts to assemble a quo
rum in the Senate, on the second evening
before the adjournment, were described at
some length in the papers, but a good
many spicy details were overlooked.
After the lone eighteen present had been
locked in for an hour or so, word reached
President Berner that at least a dozen of
the truants were feasting at the home of
a well-known railroad attorney. Accord
ingly, he sent one of his minions with
orders to bring them in, dead or alive. The
messenger found the recreant statesmen
at the table, gorging themselves to their
hearts’ content, and having a high old
time. When they learned his errand they
roared with laughter. “He told me to
bring you,” said the emissary, scratching
his head and looking perplexed, “and 1
don’t know what to say to him.” “Oh !
tell him to go to h I” replied one of the
merry diners, and with that message the
deputy departed. Whether he delivered
it, 1 don’t know, but anywhere except in
Georgy such a little incident would be apt to
cause somebody a whole lot of trouble. To
return to the weary waiters at the Capitol,
Senator Charley Battle managed to scare
up some ’possum and yams and this
homely but toothsome repast was promptly
spread on the senatorial desks. The
theory that the ’possum had brandy-sauce
does not seem to be wholly satisfactory,
but I know of no other way to account
for the scene of uproarious hilarity that
followed its discussion. Senators threw
’possum bones at each other, sang songs,
danced breakdowns, and several finally
subsided into the arms of Morpheus.
Altogether it was what Sam Hall would
have called a very re-sher-shay affair.
Not long ago a St. Louis drummer, who
travels for one of the largest houses in
that city, arrived in Atlanta on a business
trip. He put up at a fashionable hotel
and posed as an unmarried man. He
spent money with a lavish hand and de
voted a good deal of his time to the fair
sex. In some way he managed to make
the acquaintance of a dashing looking
young lady who lives on Houston street,
and was soon madly infatuated with her.
He prolonged his stay in the city for sev
eral weeks and was almost constantly in
her society. He bought her boxes of
gloves and other presents, took her to the
theatre, and showed his devotion in many
other ways. Finally he ran short of
funds, and borrowed SIOO from the At-
lanta agent of his house, instructing him
to draw on the St. Louis firm on the first
of January. Hethen left the city and has
not been heard of since. A few days ago
the Atlanta agent received a letter from a
lady inquiring about the drummer. He
wrote her as follows: “Your son left At
lanta several days ago.” In answer to
this he received a letter from the lady in
which she explained that the drummer
was not her son but her husband, and
stated that he had deserted her and his
three small children several weeks ago,
leaving them absolutely penniless. This
was a complete surprise to the Atlanta
man, and he wrote the facts to his house.
The drummer has not been seen for several
days, and his St. Louis house is making
desperate efforts to locate him.

How the Money Was Obtained on a
Dear Looking Glass: Here’s an
amusing story that 1 happen to know is
One of our businesss men who received
a worthless bank check from a prominent
citizen, after presenting it at the bank
and having it dishonored, tried the follow
ing plan with success. He went into a
number of crowded stores, where the tele
phones were within hearing of the cus
tomers, and had this conversation.
“Hello First National! 1 have a check
on your bank signed by Mr. for ten
dollars. Is it good? No money on de
posit, did you say? Has not had any
for a long time, did 1 understand you to
As several of the check-makers friends
of both sexes were in the stores at the
time the telephones were used, it was not
necessary to do such telephoning more
than one day. The next morning the
check was make good. A Looker-on.
