SO Temple Place. 48 and BUILMfi OF THE SHIPS. Hammers Ringing Lively at City Point. Nearly 400 Men at Work, on-Uncle Sam's New' Vessels. Bcenes Around the Planting Forge in the Big Smithy. The United States Government having: recently re-iueuted bids to he sent in for cruisers, tugs, lisrht-ships and other government vessels many of the contracts have, from time to time boon awarded, and the power of Boston's iron ship, builders and workmen has been recognized inasmuch as three of the contracts have been awarded to Harrison Loring of South Boston. Situated onlEast 1st, between L and M sts., this yard extends way to the water's edge with one of the largest piers extending into the water that is uBBd for similar purposes in this city. Not only is the work of building theso government vessels giving employment to hundreds of men, but Mr. Loring has now on hand large contracts for wood pulp and other machinery, and in all parte of the yard work on this branch of Mr. Loring's large business is progressing rapidly, many workmen being engaged in it. Some months ago, when bids were asked for the 2000-ton steel cruisers Mr. Loring secured the contract for one of them, and later ho secured the contract for three of the seven new steel and composite-built lightships. Within the past week ho was awarded the contract for throe steam tugs. Twice bids were called for at Washington for the building of tho tugs, but not until the early part of this mouth did a satisfactory bid appear. Tho advertisement was issued a year ago, and the first bids were all rejected because they exceeded tho appropriations, and the second time no bids were received. Firms complained that the presented plans were for a tug impossible of building within tho .35,000 appropriation. The specifications were changed, and after considerable delay new bids were received, and Harrison Loring offered to build them at $32,488. and being the lowest bidder will undoubtedly receive tho contract. Of the 600 men employed . at the City Point yard nearly 400 of them' are engaged on the government work, and when the building of the tugs is commenced this force will be largely increased. In all parts of the yard some branch of tho labor of building the cruiser and lightships is seen, In the blacksmith shop many men aro engaged, welding and shaping tho iron work, making tools especially for tho work and turning out the iron fastenings of the vessels. At tho carpenters' sliOp much work is also being done. New shops have been built, numerous small buildings being Been wound the yard, and the plant; since reviving these contracts, has been considerably enlarged, and everything necessary for rapid, though careful, shipbuilding has been attended to. , �   , A massive machine for bonding frames cold, where they do not require heating, has been built, and a new furnace for heating the frames that require bending and shaping has been erected. In one pari: of tho yard rt' long, narrow tank, in which is kept a diluted solution oi muriatic acid, is seen. Into this tank are immerged the heavy steel plates used in tho construction of the vessels, and after remaining there at an average of lour hours, aro taken out, and present a beautiful silvery appearance. All flaws, defects or streaks and imperfections aro quickly detected. Tho acid eats off tho optiro crust, and loaves nothing but tho pure steol.. This part of tho work receives particular attention from the government inspector, who is continually around tho yard while the work is going on. Ho has under him a clerk, a boy, and three draughtsmen, all employed by the government.- A very peculiar appearing and odd working affair is the shear machine, which will cut steel plates up to an inch in thickness. A new travelling crime has also been placed in position which can carry a weight of five tons or more. Harrison Loring, Sr.. has, of course, general charge of the establishment, and ho is ably assisted by his two sons, Harrison Loring. Jr.. and Atlierton Loring. both of whom tie well advanced in the knowledge) of shipbuilding and all the brandies thereof. Under covered sheds are seen the small boats, deck-houses and other attachments of the -vessals. When the planking is completed on the lightships ibis auxiliary work will then be placed on tho vessels. At the right of tho yard, near the water's edge, can be soeuthesa three immense lightships. Tliev arcs all now in frame, all three being- euually advanced toward completion. Tho contract for these cbIIb . for steel frame, hard pine wood planked vessels, tho dimensions lobe, length on 'tvatei' line, 112 feet; breadth, extreme, '11 feet 8 inches,and depth VI feet 8 inches. The frames, floors, keelsons, stringers, beams, shearing, strake-bilge, strakes, strappling, heelplates are to bo of steel; stem, slemphites, keel and rudder to be of white oak; planking and dead--wood to be of Georgia or Florida pine, and the .sheathing of white oak. Fastenings in plank, dead wood and keel aro to bo of galvanized iron in the wood-sbeating composition. The metal sheathing is to bo 20,28 and 30-ounce metal double punched. The frames are of angle steel, 4 by oVu by S-lti inches. All tho frame is rivetod to each floor and to the keel plate, back to back with the frame. The bolls are placed so that the nuts of the secured bolts in planking tit closely to the frames. The frames are in one length from the centre run io keel, to tho top of the main deck beams from frame 25 feot, and from the frame 25 feet forward they will be carried up to the topgallant forecastle deck. Tho reverse frames SxS.xO-lti inches are of angle steel in the beam frames and extend to the main deck continuous, butting ou alternate sides between the bilgo keelson and intermediate keelson. Tho reverse frames on the frames between the beam frames, extend to the berth deck in one length; butts of reverse frames being secured bv butt Straus. The woocT"\.eathing is to be of white oak, iVa inches thick, free from sap, shakes or bad knots, aud to extend from keel up foil feet 9 inches amidships, and at the ends to about 12 feet S inches. The planking is to be Georgia loug-Ufe pine. Ire* from all defects, lour inches in thickness, and the width to conform to the requirements of the vessel aud number of strokes Shown on the plan; the side of the planking nearest the heart of the tree to be worked next to tho frame in all eases. The steel used in the construction has been the best, and tho plates will be of the Siemens-Martin mild steol with a tensile strength of not less than 00,000 pounds per square inch. There are lour steol collision bulkheads, plates running horizontally and supported by 3x3 inch angle steels. The keels aro of yellow pine, sided and moulded, and the false keel 1b three-inch White oak. As the sheathing is put on tarred felt is put between it and the bottom plank and fastened with tho best four-inch copper spikes. The sheathing will then be rabbeted to the keel. There will be two lantern posts, 67 feet high and 16 inohas in diameter. It is intended to place ono of the new ships off the Great Round Shoal, Nantucket. Large steamers, sailing vessels and other craft pass through hero since the channel round the shoal was buoyed, and it draws off many of the vessels which have before crowded through Pollock's Rip. To mark this channel properly and make it safe at all times it was thought necessary to place there a lightship and fog signal, and petitions were sent to tho board, who have just ordered the second lighthouse district inspector to place relief ship No. 9, nt Wood's Holl, upon tho shoal, where sho will remain until the new lightship arrives, Another lightship is to be placed near Cornfield Point, off tho mouth of the Connecticut rivor. The lightships will cost when completed in the vioinity of 860,000 each, and part payments have been made to Mr. Loring for them. It is expected that tho first of these three vessels will bo roady for launching within four weeks, and the launching of tho others will quickly follow. The material for tho cruiser is coming in rapidly and the work is being pushed with as great speed as possible. > � Mr. Loring has two years' time in which to finish her, and the prospects are of having the vessel ready before that timo. Timbers have been placed In position at the water's odgo for a foundation upon which will rest tho keol blocks. In this work all tho frames of the vessel aro riveted complete before being erected on. the keel. Chief dimensions aitdspociiicatlon's of tho new cruiser are: Length cm mean load water line, 257 foet; extreme breadth, 37 feet; depth of hold to under side of spar deck plank amidships, 10 foet 0 inches; draft of water, moan normal,- 14 foet 0 inches; displacement in tons to load water line, 2000; area of immersed midship section, 605 square foet; indicated horsepower, C400; maximum speed per hour, 18 knots in smboth water. It will be a twin screw protected cruiser, with poop and forecastle decks, with open un deck between, fitted with water-tight eok of 17V2 pounds plating at side, reduced to 12 pounds in the centre, extending the entire length of the vessel; this deck being bolow -the load water-line at tho side 30 inches. Below this dock will be placed tho machinery, magazines and steering arrangements. Among the most notable improvements in the vessel will he an increase of speed, rearrangement of battery, and a copper dam protection extending through the entire maohiiiery space. Tho berthing accommodation and officers' quarters have been greatly improved, quite an innovation on previous arrangements having been mado in the location of the steerage, which is aft 111 tho wardroom, giving tho senior officers' quarters nearer amidships, which is freer from the jar of machinery and motion of tho ship. The torpedo outfit will consist of six torpedo guns or launching torpedoes. Tho rig is to bo that of ii two-masted schooner, and will have but a small spread of canvas. There will be an electric light plant on board, Means will be provided for securing natural and artificial ventilation in the living and storugo places, utilizing frame spaces. Automatio valves will bo fitted in ventilating pipes, where thoy pass through watertight bulkheads to prevent the flood, of water from one compartment to another. The motive poiver for the twin screws will he furnished oy two triple expansion engines of ClOO horse-power, with cylinders of 30%, 88 and 03 inches diameter and a stroke of 33 inches. The engines mid boilers will bo placed in separate watertight compartments. The boilers will bo of steel, five in number of the return fire tubular type and designed for a working pressuro of ISil pounds. The work on this cruiser haw, of necessity, to bo done piecemeal. Tho bow and stem of solid steel casting with tho ram of the same, is already completed, weighing five tons, and haB been brought to Boston from the steel works and only awaits transportation to the City Point works. This is a great piece of work done and other little things which In tho end make a great deal ore completed or noarly so. The steel steam tugs aro to be 02 feet long between perpendiculars, and 21 feet beam. They will have triple expansion engines. The diameter of the cylinders will bo 13 by 20 by 3Vb by 24-inch stroke. The models are completed, and Mr. Loring is ready to begin work at any time. Tho tugsaratobo finished in one year from the time of awarding contract. THESPIANS FROM BOSTON.

[Clnduiuitl CommeiTktl Cim-m-.] There is an old-time institution that ought to bo revived, and that is the warming-pan. One authority says that, according to medical protest against damp or cold bods, warming-pirns should come into fashion again. Ono medical writer says: "Not only tho guest, but tho family often suffer the penalty 01 sleeping in cold rooms, and ckill-�itr their bodies at a time when they need all their bodily heat, by getting between cold sheets. "Even in warm summer weather a cold, damp bed will get in its deadly work. It is a needless peril, and the neglect to provide dry rooms and beds has in it tho elements of murder and suicide." People crawl into the chilly sheets and spend half an hour in "getting the bed warm." whim tho warming pan would put them into a cosy bed that would give them warmth instead of taking it from them. We look to seethe warming pan become a fad. Heal Estate Sales in Charlestown. Charles W. Sawyer reports sales of real estate in Charlestown this fall by his agencies: No. 3 Fremont pi., @1U25; 1 Mt.

NYBODY that hadn't followed such things attentively would be a little surprised to Jearn . that a great many of tho actors and actresses who have made the greatest successes on the American stage originally hailed from Boston, or at least mado their first insignificant debut in the dramatic circles of the Hub. John McCullough, for instauco, tho wonderful tragedian, was playing soeond heavy in "Bill Sikes" at the Howard Athenieum in this towii in tho year of our Lord 1860. Nobody thought of him then as the histrionic figure whioh ho subsequently became. It was Edwin Forrest who discovered John McCullough. As tho second heavy in "Bill Sikes," McCullough had attracted some notice, but not enough to startle anybody in the theatrical world. The company in which he played his iusignifioant port was under the management of E. L. Davenport, and McCullough was retained in ,"The Dead Heart" as Jean Valjean when Davon-port took the part of Robert Landry in that play. Davenport was ill one night and McCullough was trusted temporarily with his part. Edwin Forrest happoned to be in Boston at the time and saw the play. He was so impressed by McCullough's acting that he engaged him as leading support in his own company for the next season. Mc-Cullough's career after that was the famous one with which everybody is acquainted. Who hasn't heard of how Harry Dixey began-at tho foot of the histrionic ladder? But Dixey's debut wasn't made ns tho hind legs of the heifer in "Evangeline," as nearly everybody thinks it was. Slxey'b First Appearance on the stage was in the part of Peanuts, the newsboy, in "Under the Gaslight" at tho Howard Athenceum. This was in '73-'74. Then he went to what is now the World's Museum and played among other things the part of a young girl. With "Dick" Golden he joined the Evangeline" company at the Globe Theatre and was the hind legs of the heifer, while Golden was the fore legs. He afterwards played the policeman in "Evangeline." Dick Golden's career was intimately associated with that of .Dixey. Diolc was tho fore legs of the heifer, and afterwards tho policeman in "Evangeline." His inimitable Jed Prouty is known now of all men. Denman Thompson is a fine actor, who had his beginning in this cits'. He came from Canada originally, and played "Josh Whitcomb" at what is now tho World's Museum. "Josh Whitcomb" then was a very short and rather trivial sketch. When Thompson went to tho Howard Athentoum. later on, "Josh Whitcomb" was lengthened and improved, and, when J. M. Hill took hold of Thompson, tho. little play became substantially what it is now, and the per-sistentDenman grew famous. In 1858 Lawrence Barrett camo to Boston, and played at the Museum in minor juvenile parts. Ha afterwards took the part of Frederick Bramble in "The Poor Gon tie-man," and married Miss Mary Mayor, daughter of Mrs, Mayer, who kopt a very famous confectionery shop opposite the Museum. This was about 18G0. When the war broke out Barrett went as captain of a company. He afterwards turned up in a New Orleans variety theatre, ami subsequently joined McCullough in California, and became famous. "Dan" McGuinnis, hi his day, was the prince of his class. He was a marble-worker originally, and he first acted the humble part of machinist in Morris Bros.' Minstrels 011 Washington street. Ononight UEo Sana an Ji'isli Souk, "Pat Malloy," and ever afterward was tho famous "Dan." This was in 18GG. He played at tho old Continental Theatre in '00, and struck popular favor as Button! in "Cinderella." Then he joined the Boston Theatre, and he remained there, practically, the remainder of his days. When Maggie Mitcholl struck Boston, In 1853, sh3 was known to tho public as Margaret Mitchell. She played at a littla theatre ou Sudbury St. called The Eaglo, and she appeared in simple, unimportant juvenile parts. In "Eveleen AVilson," she appeared as the heroine and made a hit. In '55 sho was the star at tho old National Theatre, Portland st, Afterward she appeared at the Museum, and brought out ''Fanehon" in '01, since wlion she has been the famous Maggie. Her sister, Mary Mitchell, appeared in "Fanehon" as Fadet, Lucille western did a turn at tho old National in 1S48. She appeared at the Howard in 1850. Her stepfather, William B. English, managed a little company in Now England towns until 185(1, mid Lucillo travelled with him. In 1850 the "Three Fast men" was brought out, and Lucille, in conjunction with her sister Holcn, played minor parts in it. Sho drifted about tho country in unimportant parts for throe or four years, and then in 1800 sho mado a tremendous hit iu Baltimore in "East Lynne." She mado hundreds of thousands of dollars in the next 17-yearR, but she died very poor, and was buried at Mt. Auburn. Her funeral, and that of her sister, took place from tho "Little Church Around the Corner" ou Bul-fluc.h st. Her mother still lives in the Forrest Homo at Philadelphia. Nat Goodwin It) another famous actor who dates his debut from Boston. He was bom in this city, aud ho always had a fancy for the sock and buskin. . He confined tho manifestations of his dramatic ambition to amateur circles. He was looked upon among amateur actors ns a very clover mimic, iind that was all. Tho only thing ho did in thotso days was in the lino of imitation of famous actors; but about 1873 PH&uiU't Htobson HroiDgrHt HUlm Qiit at the Howard in "Law In New York." Nat playod the fop there, and, while he didn't attract much attention, his friends tried to persuade him that he was going to be a famous actor some day. In 1H74 Nod Thome, brother of Charley, induced Goodwin to go to Providence and take a part in a play at the Provid once Theatre, but the young amateur was stricken with stage fright, and when ids friends looked for him. as the time for his appearance drew near, they learned that he had run away from them and gone back to Boston, In 1870 he appeared In New \ork at Tony Pastor's in imitations of Gus Williams, Lawrence Barrett, John McCullough, Stuart Itobson. and nthorfamous actors. He did very well, and was afterwards seen in "The Little Hebel," with Minnie Palmer, at tho Howard in Boston. He was Capt. Dietrich and subsequently Lo Blanc in "Evauge- "Our Own Jack" Mason was a very little twinkling star 13 years bko, when he came to the Boston Museum. The papers .scorched him unmercifully and said he couldn't act a little bit. But "Jack" stuck, ami when ho played the Colonel in "Patience," he captivated the town with his lino singing and his clever impersonation. He afterward played a season at the Union Square Theatre, Now York, and four years ago he was with Nat Goodwin as leading mini. Forty vearu ago Edwin Booth made his first, appearance at the Boston Museum. His inther was in I lie cast of "Kichard HI." at the time, and Edwin played Trussull 111 that, play. Jlis duty was lo carry a message, and when he was about to enter, his father, noticing that he was without spurs, loaned him his own, and the future great tragedian went 011 the stage. He didn't acquit himself very creditably. His voice irumbled, and he showed evidences of embarrassment. Edward L. Davenport, the father of the present Edgar L. at the Museum, was another humble beginner of those days. He subsequently became very conspicuous as Sir Giles Overreach, and he was counted one of tho inosc versatile actors in tho conn-trv. He plaved William in "Black-Eyed Susan," and was the best all-around actor of his time. John Gilbert's PIr�t Appearance, as everybody knows, was as Japphier in "Venice Preserved." This was 00 years ago. He sprang into fame immediately. He had always had a fancy for the stage, and he madu elaborate preliminary preparation, Barney Williams and Wi J. Florence, who married sisters, played subordinate parts in Boston theatres at the beginning pf their theatrical careers, and afterward munitioned a friendly rivalry. Joseph. Proctor, who is still alive and in good health, and is atwnslructor iu elocution iu Boston, plavev "Jibbenainaisy" at the old Warren Theatre more than 60 years ago. Charlotte Cushmau was born iu Lostcn, and lived in the North liud, m-xt door to John Gilbert, with whom sho pluyod m her childhood. She never performod any very humble parts, but was always more or less conspicuous from tho beginning. Frank, Mayo, whoso name Is closely identified with the modern Boston drama, was a basket boy in a California theatre, Richard Mansfield, a Boston boy, was a clerk in Jordan, Marsh & Co.'s dry goods store while he was practicing amateur theatricals. He applied himself diligently to dramatic study in those days, and, When ho made his groat hitin Now York in "The Parisian Konutnco" as the rouo nobloman, surprise was expressed that a young man without previous training or experience should dovelon such groat talent. But Mansfield had hud tho foundation for this brilliant exploit in hard amateur work. Stoddard, who was first cast for tho part of tho baron, gavo it up in despair, and Mansfield took it and mado himself famous. Georglo Cayvan, everybody knows, was a Boston girl. Sho distinguished herself in amateur thortricals, and did good work on spoctnl occasions. Sho mado 11 great hit with Riddle in tho Greek tragedy at the Globe theatre, and afterwards wont to New York, and became famous. Mmc. Nordica, or Lillian Norton Gowor in private life, is a Conservatory girl. She Studied in Boston, and acquired Some ropu-tiktlon as an amatonr. Then she went West fed grew up even more rapidly than the country. Charles Barron, whoso career at the Museum has made His namo familiar at least to ovory New Englandor, Started In Mumble Pnvta in Boston.   He afforward travelled with McCullough and Margaret Mather. Anuio Clarke of the Boston Museum is a namo than which thoro is nono more familiar to tho student of tho modern drnmn. Sho is a North End girl, and was on the stage of tho Boston Museum when she was 5 years old. She playod tho Duke of York, and becamo well known. She was the friend and protege of Charlotte Cushumn, and at tho BoBton Theatre and the Howard sho got a lot ot experience aud famo. Mrs. Thomas Barry, as Clara Biddies, a young English actress, first made her appearance in Boston at; the Boston Theatre. She married the manager after she had distinguished herself as Prince Arthur in "King John."  . Viola Allen was an Infant when sho came to Boston. She playod subordinate parts horo and becamo noted m New York. She first appeared before a Boston audienco in "Hoodmivn Blind" in '87, at tho Grand Opera House. Miss Miriam O'Loary is a Boston girl. She was born and bred hero. Sho first appeared at the Museum in 1882, in "Guy Mivn-noring." She travelled with Sol Smith Russell and Barrett's company, und distinguished herself afterward at tho Museum, where she is now. NOT EVEN A HANDSHAKE For Defaulter Kitnball-Seven Years in the State Prison the Penalty for His Crime. , Worckstibb, Mass., Nov. 1.-Today Fred Kimball, tho defaulting teller of, the People's Bank, wa3 called up for sentence in tho Superior Court. Judge Aldrich, who presided at tho sitting, did not sit today, as ho is an Old friend of the-prisoner's father and ho wished to bo excuaod from imposing tho sentence. In his place Judgo Mason officiated. Kimball movod in the very best society hero, and but few of his former friends were' present in court. Ho looked natural as ho sat in the dock. Ho twitched nervously, however, as he sat beneath tho unsympathetic stare of the usual crowd that haunts tho court room. Ho was not groeted even with a chilling handshake. Col. W. S. B. Hopkins mado an eloquent plea for mercy for Kimball. The prisoner took tho stand in his own behalf. He told about taking tho bonds, and said thoro wore $2,000,000 worth of money and bonds there when he took what ho did. Ho told of his trouble in Italy, Paris and London. In France ho kept tho bonds buried in the woods a fow miles out from Havre. He separated from the Lobgn woman because thoy wero each tirod of the life they lod, and wanted separation. Ho said she never came home to negotiate for him. He was robbed by highwaymen on the streets ot London of 9475. He wrote a letter to his father, asking him to see If the bank people would allow him to come back if he gave up tho bonds. He said ho would give up the bonds, anyway. Tho letter was full of penitence. It was not shown in court.as it had been destroyed, but tho prisoner's father testified to receiving it, and told the contents. James P. Hamilton, Ids brother-in-law, also testified to reading the letter, and saw that it oxprossed sorrow and a desiro to give back the bonds. Tho court remarked that if thoro was any real pcnltonco it could best be shown and appreciated if justico was allowed to take its course. He son-tenced Kimball to soven years in the State prison, one day to be in solitary confino- THB WBLL-DBESSED WOMAN. Who She Is, What She Is and How She Happens to Be. The well-drossed woman is not always the ono who buys many drosses, but rather she who takes best care of the few gowns she possesses, setting always the stitch iu timo that not only saves nine, but puts off tho evil day of shabbiness, attends to tho matter of niching, and stays the loosening folds of drapery before thoy are roally out of place. Tho voluble speakers and writers on tho oxhaustloss theme of woman's extravagance rgrely strike at tho roal root of the matter. It is not tho costumes purchased, but the costumes carelessly ruined that constitute woman's real prodigality. A gown should never be hung away after wearing until brushed and examinod as to loosened stitches, faithless* hooks and sailed niching. Tho rip is sure to become a rent, tho hook's office is performed with an unsightly pin, and the dross put on in haste on some occasion when those defects are sura to bo noticed by somo observing eye, usually a man, for men aro quick to perceive untidiness, and the woman takes a lower place in his regard. The wearing of a gown, too, in need of slight repairs requiring but a short time tor accomplishment, frequently results in its ruin beyond the power of noodle and thread to rectify, or at least render tho mending so conspicuous as to be incompatible with gentility. If dresses are in any degree elegant, each should bo hung away insido a bag of calico, which material docs not lint and may bo frequently washed. The bags should bo open at the bottom, iind closed with buttons and buttonholes after the dress is slipped inside, and drawn up at the top with shir strings. If tho dress is of white material a cake of white wax fastened inside the bug will prevent the goods turning yellow. If motal trimmings, gilt, silver or stool be employed, a bag of camphor gum suspended inside tho bag prevents tarnishing. Seal or velvet garments are handsomer and richer if hung in a dark but roomy closet where they will not be crushed. Closets should be aired each morning and their doors cleaned each week, or garments kept in them will have a disagreeable odor. It is better,-when convenient, to leave garments to air over night than to hang them directly in a close room when permeated with the warmth of the wearer. Waists of delicate dresses should be folded in linen wrappings and laid in drawers or trunks; those 01 heavier materiul suspended fin frames, the same as gentlemen's coats. Bonnets and hats wonr longer when always placed in boxes than left unprotected upon closet shelves. And the socrot of obtaining tho most service as woll as the most satisfaction out of shoes is to keep several pairs on hand all the time, never wait until the old shoes aro too shabby to bo worn on rainy days and long trumps before the new ones aro purchased, and never wear rubbers over leather that you wish to keep in good order, so the Sun says. _ An Important P.

Gifford, who does business at 20 India St., this city. Mr. Lampson, when called upon and asked to grant an interview respecting the oddities aud peculiarities of his father, said: "I am heartily glad that soino 0110 has taken up this subject. I am now 70 years of age, and my fathor wore a board some time before I can remember, Ho was known as "Old Jew Lampson," and we children were called tho young Jews, Wo wero all greatly annoyed because of our father's singularity. Whcnovor he went among people ho was stared at, and run after by the children, and was considered fully as much of a curiosity as an olophant. Ho was by some regardod as afool, by others as crazy, and all because ho wore u board. Ho had hurled at him all kinds of vile epithets and was oven stoned, buthe bore all uncomplainingly and soomod to glory in his self-imposed martyrdom. "We were afraid to go out with him for four of bodily injury, and wo were looked upon as not fit to associate with tho people of our town. It is almost impossible to find words to tell how ashamed 1 used to fool at being under the social ban. Father was born in Old Boylston, or 'Old Pot,' as it has been known for many years. From there he moved to Sterling, Ho was, in fact, a religious monomaniac. He was a thorough and conscientious non-resistant, and based his ideas upon the teachings of Christ, whose life he tried to emulate. He never usod tho words yes and no, but always said aye and nay. In his earlier life he had no religion, but after the death of a son ho joined the Baptist church, Then began his peculiar actions. "It was about this time that ho began to allow his beard to grow, and then began the troubles for the family. Ho over after dressed iu white. Wool lio would not color, because he declared that coloring took from it its strength. Hisshoes ho had made with the flesh side out and tho hair on the insido; this whenever he could. "He dofiod the church law of his time, and would not pay church taxes. For this he was arrested and placed in Worcester jail. When the ollicer arrested him ho mado no resistance, but did cling to his shaving horse, mid,'as ho was a very powerful man, the officer could not separate the two, so horse and man were placed in the team and cartod off to jail. He would not pay the church tnx bocnuso ho thought it was not right or just. It was not that ho was financially unable, but he declared that there was a principle at stake which ho would not sacrifice. "Once when ho was in a.store at Sterling, several men spi-iuig upon him and attempted to hold him while his beard could be out off, but, thoy reckoned not upon his prodigious strength. Ho did not strike out or offer violence, but simply set thorn one side ns a child would handle so many dolls. Another time a mob, armed with sheep shears, at-tnpked him on the highway, and managed to gouge out a gciierpiis part of onosldoof his flowing beard. "Ho took the religions ground that all days arc alike, nnd held that good should be done every day, not that one day should bo sot apart us a sort of dress up day for religion's sake. He defied the law against travelling Sundays, and once he was arrested in Connecticut by the tithing man for driving on the Sabbath. Tho tithing man look father home, but ho objected to being separated from Inn horse, because the animal would be abused, ho thought. Fathor was kept until Monday, when ho was ordered to go along, but he would not move until his team had been hitched for him and tho horse actually started by the tithing man. He took tho ground that tho otticial should leave him just as ho found him; that as his horse had been stopped, the same authority must set him in motion. "My father never harmed any one, and suffered for his. conscientious action such reproaches and contumely as were showered upon him with wonderful patience and forbearance. He was as kind to those who sought to do him injury and wound his feelings as ho was to his own kin. He was considerable of an originator, arid was the in venter of several valuable patents, chief among them being his scythe smith, which is in use today wherever the scythe is used, not only in this country, but in others, and upon which invention there has been no improvement since ho brought about a startling innovation in the hanging of uscythe. To the farmers of two generations ago his new discovery was a veritable godsend. "He affirmed that it was nature's law that tho beard should grow, and ho ever declared that to.shave was but to disfigure tho face; also that tho time would come when beards would be tolerated, and that ultimately it would be uncommon for men to shave. "As I have understood it the marked opposition to Gentiles wearing beards was because of tho intense hatred of the Jews, who wero then becoming identified with the country through considerably increasing numbers. Father claimed that Jesus and his disciples wore beards, thai the life and habits of Christ were well worth following, and as his Saviour had borne persecution he as an humble followershoithl do likewise, aud for that reason he bore tho insults 10 which lie was subjected without a murmur. My mother was lar from pleased with the notoriety father's peculiar course piive um. but she did not complain and bore her trials meekly and with remarkable fortitude. My impression is that had it not been for my brother's death father would not have held to such prououneed religious views, but his wearing of a board was not iho lesult particularly of his roligious thought/' 'Old Jew Lampson" had 11 worihy In 1863, Messrs. 0.

The face shows growing upon it a long beard, and the impression tho aver-ago nervous person would got would bo that tho dead wore rising from the grave and pouring forth upon the world, having come up through the solid marble. Directly beneath this novolty in gravestone decorations is cut in bold letters; *....................'.............* '        rEityi'auTKn rou WBAiuKa        * : mi: ueahd, : Joseph Palmer was born m that part of Leominster known as "No Town," a tract of GOO acres, which was given to tho Palmer ancestry in the early part of tho 17th century for tho bravo and valuable sorvicos tho Palmers rendered during the Indian wars. It was in the early MOs that tho subjoot of this narrative left "No Town" and movod to tho present city of Fltohbrtrg, and lived in a houso that stood where tho prosontClty Hall stands. "Old ilow Palmor" was subjected to tho same kind of treatment as his brother beard-wearer, and they were well acquainted. Rev. Goorgo Trask of Fitehburg was about as much of 'a cliaractor in bis way as either Palmer or Lampson, and was known far and wide as tho wild antl-tobaoconist. Tho term "crank" was then in use. One day the minister met the beard-raiser and Inquired vehoinbntly: "Palmer, why don't you shavo and not go around looking like the devil?" Palmer crushed Trask by replying in-stantor: "Mr. Trask, aro yon not mistaken in your comparison of personages? I never have soon a picture of a ruler of the sulphurous regions that showed ho ever wore a hoard- perhaps It had boon closely singed-but, If I remember correctly, Jesus wore a beard not unlike mine." Finally tho public becamo so incensed that general opinion decided that Palmer's beard must come off; that tho indignation of tho people could no longer hold its bounds. Ono day as Mr. Palmor was coming outof the Fitehburg Hotel, whore he had been to carry some provisions, he being in the provision business, ho was seized by four men who had with them shears, lather and razor, and were all ready to start a barber shop right then and thoro. Palmer was a giant in strength and for a time fought off his assailants, but they had about conquered him when ho drew a knife and stabbed two of the attacking parties in the logs, when they fled and ho aroso and walked off exultmgly with not a hair cut, For cutting two of tho mon he was m*-rostcd for committing an unprovoked assault and was ordered to pay a fine, which ho refused to do; whereupon he was thrown into the Woroostor jail and remained there a year. Unco the Jailer and several men went into his apartment to shave him, but he fought so that, after ho had kicked all hands around the debtor's room in which he was confined, thoy retired, not caring particularly if that particular beard didn't come off. His family moved to Woroostcr aud hired a tenement near tho jail. He wrote letters to tho Worcester Spy, in which ho complained of tho treatment the prisoners received. These lotters were carried to tthe Spy office by his son Thomas, who is now a well-known dentist hi Fitehburg, who tolls tho following story; "Ono day when 1 went to tho jail after father had boon put into the dungeon he heard my step and sung out: 'Thomas, tie a stono to a string and swing it by the window so that 1 can catch it,' which I did, and pulled up a letter for tho high sheriff, which contained a complaint of tho treatment ho was receiving. Ho was soon placed in his old quarters. After awhile the injustice of tho charge brought against him and ot his imprisonment seemed to dawn upon the public mind, and he was released. "Later, when whiskers began to grow in favor, father met a minister who had formerly denounced him for his unholy course. At this time the man of God was struggling with a beard. Father wont up to him and, stroking the minister's whiskers, said: '"Know that thy redeemer llvcth?' "He claimed to bo the redeemer of the beard." Joseph Palmer was a strong anti-slavery man and once in Boston to attend a meeting of the anti-slavery people he attracted so much attention because of his board that the street became blocked, and there came near being a riot. He was a radical trmper-iineu ninn, and because he would not furnish grog us a part of a day's rations it was difficult for him to get help to harvest his crops. He was also associated with A. ISron-son Alcott in the establishment of a "community" at "Fniitliul," Harvard. It's a well-established fact that the names of theso two old fellows were most excellent ones with which to quiet unruly and refractory children, and those children, now-grown up, can appreciate what innocent fun the .wind had blowing through those disci THE WAIF. "You little, woo thing. What is the trouble?" asked a fashionably dressed lady, muffled in sables, to a tiny ohild who had thrown herself across a grave In Copp's Hill cemetery, regardless ot tho bitter cold. * "I'se dot no mamma-no minima. Naughty men put dear mamma down hore," cried tho 'little one, lifting a dirty, tear-stained face. "Who was your mamma, ohild?" asked the lady. But tho poor ohild lay shaking aud shivering with grief and cold and oould not answer. "Say, mother," said Howard Carrlngtbn, a boy of 12, "bring the little girl homo with us. She will die here." "Yes, I know sho will die if loft hero, but it is a easo for tho police, not for us, How-ward," Baid his mother. "Oh, bothor tho polioe. We'll all freezo to death if wo stay hero any longer. Come, little girl I We aro going to take you homo with us." But tho child had faintod, so Mrs. Carring-tou called her coachman, who picked the ohild up In his arms and oarriod hor to the carriage, where sho was laid upon a seat and covered with robos. Before roaching Mrs. Carrhigton's home on Arlington st., the child had come out of her faint but was delirious. Dr. Wilde was sent for and pronounoed it brniji foyer. They found hor underolothos'to be of tho finest linon, with the remnants of real valencionnos laoo clinging to it. On all the clothes wore tho initials "G. C. R." Those wore laid oarefully away; also a locket with tho monogram "G, C." on one Bido, and a picture of a fine-looking man and a sweet, facod woman on the lusldo. When tho wan littlofaco was washed, and tho tangled curia combed and brushed, it was found that although not protty sho was very interesting looking:. Tho black eyes wore too large for such a small pinched face. The skm was too sickly and sallow looking for beauty. For Uvo weeks tho child lay 111 unto death. Thon tho dlsonso turned. The good nursing was rewarded, and the little stranger camo back to life. During hor convalosenco sho ondoarod horsolf to all hearts. Mrs. Carrington spent all her leisure timo thoro, and Howard flitted in and out during tho time ho was homo from school, Mr. Caning ton had been in to soo tho little one also, but ho was always busy. The president of a railroad company with half a dozon other things in which he was interested, ho found little timo to spend at home. So when his wife asked him to sit down for a few momonts and talk to hor, he pulled out his watch and Bald; "You must hurry, my dear. I must attend a meeting at 8, and the carriage is waiting." "With your fortune, George, I should think yon would do less and take more time for homo and pleasure. I wanted to speak to you about Gladys; Iaskod her hor name today. I have taken a groat fancy to hor, and if no frionds can bo found, I would liko to adopt her." "My dear wifo, adopt a dozen children if yon wish. Of cotirso, of course. Why, just please yourself. Well, goodby; I'm off," and, kissing his wifo, ho loft, to bo brought back two hours later with a stroke of paralysis. Ten years passed away.

Gladys was always ready to read to him or to run for him. She hud a govoruoss and was already a fine musician and an adept with the languages, especially Fronoh, Sho was nearly 1C now. Sho made no frionds among the young people, for she preferred her books and tho society of tho stricken man to any other. However, ono day of the week was a gala day with her. and that was when Howard camo home on Saturday. Ho was a senior at Harvard. Gladys was very proud of her big brother, as sho called him, who was to be graduated in Juno. But May brought tho death of the paralytic. No ono mourned him more sincerely than Gladys. Howard's graduation brought no scone of festivity, but after three years Mrs. Carrington decidod to bring her adopted daughter out into socletr. She had developed Into a beautiful girl-a willowy figure, jet-bluck curls covering her head, her dark eyes set in an olivo complexion, withal an aristocratic face Her disposition was as lovely as her face, and one had done quite ns* much as the other In winning Howard Carring-ton's heart, for it was certainly lost to beautiful Gladys. Going into his mother's boudoir ono morning, he throw himself on the mg in front of the fire, and said: "Mother, do you know I am in love? I have met a girl who in every way meets my ideal, and I am going to find out today if there is any hope for me?" And looking into his face his mother saw that if the girl refused him there was'no hope for him. Then, so tremblingly, she asked: "Who is the girl of your choice, HowardV" "Cannot you guess, mother mine? Why. it is our Gladys." "Gludysl Why, my boy, we do not know who her parents were, or any thing about her. I love her as a daughter now, anil shall wish you joy, dear, but I wish we knew- moro other. I never thought of its coming to this. But there, run and Iind her and come back and toll mo how you havo succeeded." One hour later he returned. "Mother," he said, "Uludys loves ino, but says she will never marry me till she finds out who sho is. Sol shall mako it my life work." The next evening the place was in a great commotion, for tho debut of Miss Carrington was on hand. Sir Richard Clayton was to be the honored guest. Gladys received with Mrs. Carrington. She wore a beautiful gown, made by Worth, all shimmering silvery tullo. Sir Richard did not appear till late in the evening. Gladys was standing near the Conservatory with Howard, when a tall elderly gentleman stepped quickly up tii her, and laying his hand upon her arm, saidi "Gladys! Gladysl can it be?" Drawing herself up to her full height! Gladys looked coldly at the gentleman and said, haughtily: "I have not tho acquaintance of the per. son who calls mo Gladys so familiarly." "Ah, pardon mo. Let me explain my unseemly conduct. I am Sir Richard Clay, ton, and was invited to attend the debut ot Mis. Carrhigton's daughter. Icameso late that I have mot only n few people. I had a dear daughter named Gladys who left me many years ago to marry a French opera singer named Renaud. When I saw you I saw the counterpart of that daughter, forgetting that she would bo muny years older now. 1 hoard from hor several times, but refused to answer, telling her that she must bida by her choice. She wrote that a child, a girl, had boon born to them, and that was tho lost I over heard of her. Am I pardoned?" And ho bowed low before her, with tho grace of a knight of the middle agos. Before sho oould roply Howard stepped, forward and said: "I havo seen your face before, sir, and if you will meet mo in tha library with Gladys and my mother in 10 minutes I will tell you somo good news, I think," With this ho rushed away, meet. Ing them later at tho appointed place. Placing Gladys' locket in his hand, ha said hastily: "Sir Richard, whoso faces aro those?" "Good God, man I What do you meiwijl Those are tho portraits of my wifo and -m*W self. Wo had them taken and put into thisf locket to glvo Gladys on her 3.8th birthdayv How camo you by it?" "Through your granddaughter, who stands thoro," pointing to Gladys. "Ah I my child, my child. Thank God, a*J last," ho exclaimed. The birth was easily proven, and as Lads Gladys Clayton was quite equal in birth ti Howard Carrington, sho hatt no legitimate reason for refusing him. And she didn't. OWE WAY TO STEAL DIAMONDS, A Trick That Admits of the Thief Sutol mitting to Bo Searched. [.lowollors' Weekly.] It is natural that articles of groat valuo are objects of temptation. Wo are prepared to understand that the common' thief is constantly scheming to gain possession of precious stones and jewelry, but it is a mat-tor of surpriso to learn, through stories that oomo from across tho ocean, of the tricks-indulged in there by the diamond trade- tho legitimate, e very-day dealers in precious, stones. Tho peculiarity of this condition of things. is that tho sharp practice of dealers does not involve their reputation or standing, the thing being looked at as a matter of shrewdness, and rather admired as a clever piece of business. An anecdote is related to illustrate this: A dealer called upon a firm with whom he was in tho habit of transacting business and asked to see a lot of diamonds. After examining thorn for somo time ho returned tho paper, saying he would call again in reference to buying tlumi. It was at dnco noticed that a largo stone was missing. A hasty search was made, but no trace of tho diamond being discovered, tho dealer with-, out more ado was accused of having taken, tho brilliant. He indignantly denied the charge, and submitted without hesitation! to being soarchod. Tho stone was not found, and profusa, apologies were olTorcd for tho false aoousa-tion. The following day tho dealer ap-l peared again, this tune with a paper of dia-j monds to sell, but also with another objucfii in view, which he took good cure not; to dis-' close. A careful observer might havai noticed, that while the stones were being?! examined at the light, ho ran his fingers along tho under .surface of tho portion of;-, tho counter near which ho suit, and picked off something Unit stuck to the wood. It was nothing more or less than tho diamond which had so mysteriously disup-leared the day before. He had fastened it o the counter by means of a piece of wax: Willi which ht> had provided himself, and and mi tho occasion ot his second visit ae* cured his booty. Moral Education Association.
