Atchison Globe (Newspaper) - December 11, 1877, Atchison, Kansas THE GLOBE. A Daily Evening Poster Devoted to Gab and Gossip, and Paid Locals PRICE. TWO CENTS. ATCHISON. KS. OKO EM REK ll. IM VOE I NO LOAFING. A Couple of Young Men who have had a Spell of It Tell How They Like It. Two weeks of masterly inaetivity— two weeks of loafing. Two oftin * most ' wearisome weeks we have ever put in. Weary of nothing to do. 'TIii" statement will he accepted w ith an incredulous smile by those who have never in their life done anything hut idle. But the aet ive people who compole tile greater part of our population w ill accept it soberly, and know how to sympathize with tis. We have been waiting—not waiting for our ship to rome in. for w e arc expecting no ship—no. not even a steamboat, but—waiting for a freight ear containing our press to come in. While waiting Cor that freight car. we have had time to note some things. One thing in particular we could tu t help noting. And that is. if you desire to make a man thoroughly dissati.nied with himself, locate him in a *trange tow ii and give him nothing to do. 'flu* mind that i- constantly occupied i* contented. This j, nu old truth, hut it never struck ti" very forcibly until within the last two weeks. By-the-way, there are many old truths that we never fully appreciate until we are called upon In certain circum stances to test them. flu* first few days of our louting we got along swimmingly. We devoured novels by tin* dozen. We talked amicably on variom subjects and always agreed in our conclusions. We visited tile theatre at night and agreed ai the conclusion of the performance that we had been highly edified. But after a few days life began to grow irksome. We became disgusted w ith novels, and having exhausted every subject of interest. we ceased our discussions. We freely criticised the theatres, and denounce I certain actors as too stupid f >r any use. which, by the way. oul\ g< e ; to show that idle people are the worst | adverse critics that actors are compelled to appear before. A thorough loafer i-hard to please. In fact. it i* impossible topic him. We would dislike to keep , a hoarding house* w ith none hut loafing hoarders. We spend hours standing at the* window wondering. We wonder if we shall ewer beacon ie acquainted with the* pale* veiling gentleman w ho passes *o regularly to his meal -, and whether in* will eve»rget any fatl<*r than lie is now . A ehureli stee*ple* mounts its bond high in the air aen’oss the* oppodte block. We wonder if its pastor is a kind, gentle* man like* those* we have* know n. If we thought so. w e should certainly call on him. We wonder if we will eve*r he* iblo to Maud off those* store* ke*e*pers across the way fora sae*k of Hour. aud if thew are* good adven tise*rs. We* wonder if that laboring man. who gee^ meanly home* with a basket on his arm. isn't as happy as the* richest nabob in town, and whether there are rosy cleeked children anywhere* waiting for him. We wonder if that be*li is ringing for Saturday night choir practice, and vvlie*tlieu’the singers will have* any fun. We wonder whet her I he* ie n-»r is put ting in his time as wadi as we did when we were* young and attendee! rehe*ar*al. and whether the bass singer ise*hoiiste*r. and if he don't look daggers at the* sopranos and altos when thew giggle*.

Among the guests. there* is the krowl dgc-tWrsfy man. who buries himself behind a newspaper; there* i> the* sedate* man. w ho looks squarely over a very high eolhir; then* is tin* chun -v man. who get' hi* arms in the butter; the*re is the not-to-hc-tri tied with man. w ho glares ut the w aiter* as though he more than half suspected thew were* brigands with aprons on. ane! the»re i' the man so hungry thai lie* goes in with both hands. .\ great deal of exaggeration ha* been indulged in with reference to hotel people, who are said to re‘gavel customers only as so many machines tee he* oih*d at so mucdi a machine*, hut we* have alway* found them polite and atte*ntive. from New Ve»rk to San Erane*ise*o.

Altliough he* has only be*e*n here* a month, lie* e*!aims ae*e|uaintaus|iin w ith all the* dis-tinguisheel people of the* town. and Ste»oeI at our wiinlow to pick out his frie*ndsfrom the* crowd Indow . “That," lie* says, pointing tee a *ilv«*ry-haire*<l old ge*ntleman whee goes by w ith a cutie*, “is old Moneybags. «>i ie * Of the* hone* ami sinew'.    111\it«*eI up tee Iii* house tor dinner to-morrow." Ile* never pauses at our look of ine*i*«*«liility. hut rattles on: “Ah! upon my weird there* conn*' n y frienel. Mayor Dow ns. Looking fed* me now. I havn't’a doubt.

I assure* you." And so forth and soon. Although we* know perfectly wadi that this young man is not far Tcmnv<*d from a tive-lunch grabber, ani bas thrice Inti-mated his willingness to go to dinner with it*, in our loneliness we* humor his whim, aud ask him if lie find* the Atchison ladies as winning/and blushingly beautiful as their sisters on tile* other side of the lathe*!’ of waters?
