There is some carping by hypcroriteal per-so- m over Mr. Ourransro'e nluctaaoe to shake hands with fifty IWesterners a minute at the Innumerable receptions on his circuit. The argument of the complainants is that it is aa Inborn right oferery ope of our 00,000,000 people to \shake \with the (President, and that it is discourteous, if not actually uncon- stitutional, for him to decline. The defease Is that the President Is not a pump-hand- le and that his good right band Is not made of cast-iro- n. In this dire emergency It fills us with joy to come to the relief of all parties con- cerned with an eminently practical sugges- tion. Let the President cultivate the knack of shaking with tbo left as well .'as the right hand. Many olever housewives have learned to rest the right hand in this way. By chang- ing off in this fashion Mr. Olxtxxihd might rest himself, give variety to a , tedious per. fonnanoe and establish an invaluable prece- dent for his successors. BEAE0B FOB THB BAHB. The interesting story, \Behind Asylum Bars,\ told in yesterday's Wobld by a young woman who successfully feigned insanity and spent several days in Bellevue and the Black, well's Island Asylum, conveys some startling facts. It shows that when once the idea that a person Is insane is suggested to the mind It is difficult to remove the impression. It proves that expert doctors are as easily de- ceived in such cases as non-pr- of esslonals. It demonstrates how eastlr sane persons mar be subjected to a fate the most horrible the hu- man mind can coaooive. Here was a young woman who feigned It is true, but who suooessfully passed tho scrutiny of\policemen judges, matrons, lynx-eye- d reporters and experienced doctors without deteotlon. When she designedly spoke rationally and naturally those around her were more than ever convinced that she was Insane. She Is satisfied that some of the alleged lunatics with whom sho was brought in contact are as sane as herself. A PBTOB0 TO OmZBH TBABT, Citizen Taarjf has inaugurated his reign of terror In Chicago. He provoked what was very much like a riot by his speech at the Princes Theatre. Evidently Chicago has not the stamina to withstand his ty harangues. Only the unique Taint himself waa able to restrain the mob that he aroused. Our \psycho\ to the fiery citizen at this juncture is to restrain himself as well. In this reign of terror business he is pointed In the wrong direction. Buoh an emtio spark should not fool around a powder magazine.

Now that the younger Dioxxms is coming to this' country there Is la some quarters a disposition to discredit him because he is the son of his father. This is not fair. As Sen. ator EtaBts says of Fued.

To his aston- ishment the bed of the stream seemed sprinkled with gold, and he saw that he had leaned directly over a rich vein. Samples of the quarts which he brought to town assayed several thousand dollars to the ton.

I The chiefs of the two organizations are to meet la conference within a few day and harmony and unity are to be talked over. f There Is every pros-pe- of Tammany Hall and the County De- mocracy uniting upon a county and judiciary ticket. This was prac- tically agreed upon ot the Saratoga Conven- tion, where the two factions signed artioles of peace and good will for the coming cam- paign, and as allies refused to smoke the pipe of peace with Irving Hall. Since their return from the State Council of the party tho leaders of Tammany Hall and tho County Democracy have boon com- muning among themselves in their own wig- wams. They have not, however, appointed ambassadors to represent tho rival but now friendly disposed maohlnes In long and short talks over the equitable division of the offloosto be voted for. Fire Commissioner Blohard Groker, Sheriff Hugh J. Grant and W. Bourke Cookran, on tho part of Tammany alall. and Edward Cooper, Police Justioe Maurice J. Power and Fire Commis- sioner Honry D. Purroy, representing the County Domooraoy, may have had informal consultations regarding the union and make- up of the county and judiciary ticket, but as yet no formal oonferonoe has been hold. Tho Tammany Hall County and Judiciary Convention meets next Thursday. After forming an organization it will probably ap- point a conferenoo committeo consisting of the leaders of the various district machines and then take a recess until after the County Democracy Convention, whioh meets on Wednesday, Oct. 10, has named a conforence committee. The two committees will select and the arranging for the union will begin in earnest. It will not bo out of plaoo to Inform the rooders of the first jssuo of Tax Evxnino \Wom-- p that the com-in- g municipal election Is an important one. The following officers that are to be voted for will prove this : District-Attorne- In place of Bandolph B. Mar-tin- e. A Surrogate, In place of Daniel O. Rollins. Two Justices of the Supreme Court, In place of Abraham B. Lawrence and Charles Donohue. Two Justices of the City Court, In place of Ernest Hall and Stephen Burdett Hyatt. Judge of the Court of Creneral Sessions (accord. Ing to act of Isst Legislature creating an additional criminal Judgeship). Comptroller, In place of Edward V. Loew. Resident of the Board ot Aldormen, In place of Henry It Deekman. Coroner, In place of M. J. B. Messemer. Besides these and State officers, the electors of the city are to vote for Senators, Assemblymen, Civil Justices and Aldermen. How Tammany Hall and the County De- mocracy will divide up the county judiciary and district nominations is the question that is puzzling even the knowing politicians. All sorts of statements and rumors have been floating around in hotel corridors, olubs and places of publlo1 resort about the make-u- p of the county tiokct. It has been said that Tammany Hall would demand the naming of the candidates for tho Justiceship of the Suprome Court, a Justiceship of the City Court, Comptroller, Surrogate and Coroner. This would give tho County Domocraoy tho selection of the nominees for District-Attorne- y, Judge of the Court of General Sessions, a Justice of tho SuprcAe Court, a Justice of the City Court and President of the Board of Al- dermen. Then it has been proclaimed by po- litical wiseacres that the Count' Democrats wanted the Comptrollership to be awarded to them, while Tammany Hall would lay claims to the Genoral Sessions Judgeship or both Justiceships of the Supreme Court. Since tho press and the publio have been demanding the nomination of Bandolph B. Martine for Judge of Goneral Sessions, and Do Lancey Nicoll for DiBtrlct-Attorne- y, the leaders of both organizations have boen do. ing a great deal of thinking. Tammany Hall Is perfectly willing to have Mr. Martine and Mr. Nicoll on tho union ticket, but insists that their nominations be credited to the County Doraocracy in tho division of tho offices. If tho County Democraoy leaders see defeat for the entiro ticket staring them in tho faco unless they place both Mr. Mar- tina and Mr. Nicoll on tho ticket they will endeavor to parcel out either tho Dfstrict-Attornoysh- ip or tho General Sessions Judge- ship to Tammany Hall. Ah Mr. Martine and Mr. Nicoll have heretofore been members of the County Democracy organization, of course Tammany Hall would prefer that the County Demooraoy would nominate its own members, and leave the wigwam a slice of another part of the tickot. An attempt was mode to Influence District-Attorne- y Martine to stand for renominatlon. If the attempt had been successful it would have resulted In the shelving of Mr. Nicoll. Mr. Martine, howover, cave certain gentle, men to understand that lie was a candidato for nomination for Judge of the Court of General Sessions. It 1b also said on tho best of authority that ho has notified his friends lu the County Democracy that ho would not uccept n nomination for that position unless Mr. Nicoll is nominated for District-Attorne- Judge Charles Donohue bos not given up hopo of boing renominated. He has been bringing the strongest kind of pressure to socure recognition from Tammany Hall. Thero are many leaders of Tammany Hall who think it uould injuro tho entire ticket to place Judge Donohue upon it. Tho Wig-vamlt- who remained faithful to tho late John Kelly cannot forget how Judge Dono- hue used his powerful influonco in more than ono attempt to crush their old leader and or. cauization. Corporation Counsel Morgan J. O'Brien is still mentioned for Supreme Court Judge, and his friends are pushing his claims for promotion to the bench. Tne Bepublican leaders are patiently await- ing the result of the pow-wow- s between Tam- many Hall and the County Democraoy. Their County Judiciary Convention will not nominato a ticket until the Dem- ocrats have placed their ticket in the Bold. Tho Bepublican bosses will he in a position to make capital out of any mis. takes the Democrats may make. Thero aro hundreds of prominent Republicans who aro wishing that the Democratic machines will set Mr. Nicoll aside. In that event they iould favor his nomination ou a Bormbllcan. Oitizn County Judiciary ticket. They are of opinion that a Bepumlcan-Citlzen- ticket would not only overthrow a machine union ticket, but would bring thousands and thou- sands of votes to the Bepublican State tickot. m ew 8cb Casks Met Fnn Every Day.

The Anti-Pover- ty Society has for its highest aim the abol- ishment of poverty and the elevation of the poort and when Mrs. Hackett, who has boen preaching for years the doctrines which she believes to be the solution of the social prob- lem, looked for tho objeot of the interested attention of some children who, standing near her booth at the Anti-Povor- fair, were looking intently at the bottom of her gowa, sho found that an emaciated and thoroughly poverty-stricke- n black kitten had laid its bony frame there, she practised what sho reached. The kitten had wandered into the S larden from the street and Mrs. Hackett took it up as a harbinger of good luck to the fair and the United Labor Party. The kitten was taken to stout-hearte- d Mary Halligan. Dr. McGlynn's former cook, who guarded the passago to his room from sacri- legious intrusion by those who had boen ap- pointed in his place long after the loggarth aroon had been evicted by the order of sus- pension from the Archbishop. Mary gave a banquet of cold turkey to the waif, and it speedily booamo a favorite. It was ohris. toned Anti-Povert- y, and was petted by the ladieB and dragged about by the children at the fair until Mrs. Haokett thought it might be petted to death, and took the baby home with her, whoro it now is. It is living On the top shelf, has shown an exoeedlng fondness for raw oysters no vinegar, thank you and is growing sleek and fat. The ladies at the fair Insist upon it that it is Scotch luck for a blaok cat to come to one's house, and that Anti-Pover- ty is sure to bring luck to tho causo for which they work. The kitten will be an attraction at the fair this week, and will accompany Henry George to tho White House in 1885, say the lady politi-clan- s of the fair. At any rate, its coming into the Garden was a sign of good luck for itself, and it is evidently quite satisfied with its en- trance into politics as a member of the United Labor party BUCKET-SHO- P BB0KEES' METHODS. They Are a Superstitions \Lot and Oftea have Aecemmodatlns; Friends. The curbstone and bucket-sho- p broken ore the most superstitious people in the world. Before they will plank down the five-doll- ar syndicate they have made up oa the particu- lar stock they are going to bull or bear to the extent of their pile, they will hustle all over the street and see all their friends, to find out if possible the latest tip concerning their fa- vorite. A popular dodge to get a tip on some active stook then attracting the attention of the speculative market is to go to the office of some big broker who is dealing largely in that particular security for his customers and pump his bookkeeper. Sometimes the bookkeeper is o gentleman of very easy morality, and will not refuse to impart what knowledge bo has regarding the transactions of some of the big customers of the firm to a friend or acquaintance, espe- cially wbon the request is backed up by an offer of coin in moderate amounts. Perhaps tho representative of the five-doll- syndi- cate is told that Mr. So and So, one of the biggest traders in the street, has sent in an order to buy a thousand shares of the stock in question, and off he goes to advise his to float up on a bull mar. ket, and they go in for a quick turn. If thero are any Indications that there is going to be unloading the syndicate will sell and take its chances on a falling market. These little games are comparatively Inno- cent, however, when their effect upon the market is concerned. They are carried In a bolder manner sometimes, as, for instanoe, when two opposing cliques are fighting eaoh other In tho markot and It is of the utmost importance to each to find out just That the other is doing. Then easily approached book, keepers and clerks are In great demand, and there Is often big money floating around on these occasions whioh finds its way, it Is said, into the pockets of men who are not above betraying the interests of their employers and their customers.

Itisasim. \\ pie tomb of gray gran ite built in the hillside, and oovered with a natural drapery of vines and wild plants, and in its solitude and quietness is sugges- tive of tho wild woodland scenes that the naturalist so dearly loved during his life. Some time ago it was decided by tho author!, tios of the cemetery to cut a roadway through that part of the ground where the tomb of Audubon stands and it was found that this would necessitate the removal of his body. Attho samoxtlme a new avenuo known as Audubon avenue is to be opened between Tenth avenue and tho Boule- vard, whioh will lnterseot the cemotery. A proposition has been made, therefore, that the body of Audubon, when it is removed from its present resting place, be interred at the head of the new avenue and the spot be marked by a handsome monument worthy of the great naturalist's fame. The New York Academy of Sciences has taken tho matter in hand and one or two meetings have been held with a view to arriv-In- g at some understanding regarding the purchase of tho monument, which will be a very handsome one, tho money to purchase it being raised by subscription. A commit- tee consistingpf Prof. D. 8. Martin and Dr. Britton and Prof. Eggleston, of Columbia College, have the arrangements in hand and are now in negotiation with tho family of tho naturalist for the purpose of securing the authority necessary, and their further plans will be announced at some future meeting. The remains of Audubon have lain in the vault in Trinity Cemetery sinco his death in 1851. In view of the interest which the present project has already aroused, it might not bo out of place to present a sketch of tho life of the celobrated scientist, about whom so little seems to be known at the present day. Ho was born in the year 1775, of French parents, in the southern port of the State of Pennsylvania. At a very early age he began to develop that love of nature which led him to become a devoted student of everything pertaining to nature. As he says himself: \ When I had hardly yet learned to walk the productions of nature that lay spread all around were constantly pointed out to me. They soon became my playmates, and before my ideas were sufficiently formed to enable me to estimate the differences between the azure tints of the sky and the emerald hue of the bright foliage I felt that an intimacy with them, not consisting of friendship merely, but bordering on frenzy, must ac- company my steps through life, and now more than ever am I persuaded of tho power of those early impressions. Hone but aerial companions suited my fancy.\. He inherited his intense ove of nature from his father, who encouraged him, helped him make collections in natural history, and taught him to paint and draw, on art which he afterwards made noble use of in his great work on \Ornithological Biography.\ His education was completed in Franco, whither his father sent him at an early age. One of his masters at Paris was the great David. When he first returned to this country, at about tbe age of twenty-fiv- e, he went into business. He mode repeated failures, how- ever, in trade and finally gave up every- thing for his favorite study of nature. He used to take long excursions on the rivers and through the woods, accompa- nied by his wife and child. In this way he travelled all through tho States of Pennsyl- vania and Kentucky, sketching and writing. Some of his descriptions of woodland scenes are tho most beautiful and picturesquo ever written. One can feel the fresh air Dlowins in his face as he reads, he can scent the odor of prairie flowers and autumn woods and bear the roar of the surf along the seashore. Nature, and not books, was bis teacher. He began to write his great work on birds in 1825, and completed the first volume in 1831. The fifth and last volume was finished in 1839, and the work is one of the grandest ever undertaken. While he was writing it he visited England, whero he was received with open arms. In 1828 ho went to the Con- tinent and visited Cuvier and received his en- couragement in his work. After his return to the United States he first devoted his at- tention to the bird life along the Gulf of Mexico, and discovered and described a num- ber of new species. Then he explored Lab- rador and tho coasts of British America. He died in 1851, at the age of seventy-six- . His devoted love of nature cannot have a better illustration than in the closing chapter of bis great work on Bird Biography, where he says t \ Amid the tall grass of ths far extended of the West, in the solemn forests of Brairies on the heights of the midland mountains, by the shores of the boundless ocean and on the bosom of the vast lakes and magnificent rivers, have I sought to searoh out the things whioh have been hidden since tho creation of this wondrous world, or seen only by the naked Indian, who has for un- known ages ages dwelt in the gorgeous but melancholy wilderness. Who Is the stranger to my own dear country who can form an ode. quate conception of its primeval woods ; of tne glory of thoso coumnar trunks that for centuries have waved In the breeze and re. slated the shock of the tempest ; of the vast bays of the Atlantic coast replenished by thousands of streams differing in magni- tude as differ the stars that sparkle in the expanse of the pure heavens; of the density of aspect of our Western plains, our sandy South- ern shores, interspersed with reedy swamps, and the cliffs that protect osr Eastern coast ; of the rapid currents of the Mexican Gulf, and the rushing tido streams of tho Day of Fundy ; of our own ocean lakes, our mighty rvers, our thundering cataracts, and majestio mountains rearing their snowy heads into the calmest regions of the dear, cold sky would that I could delineate the varied feat, ures of that loved land I \ mowers for tbe Widow In the lied Hause.
