Ho has come to stay. Sotuo dignify him by the nomo of street vender or ridowulk mer- but tho only namo that with ihcbuoynntand palpitating public IB street fakir. So It have to go nt that Ho Is ficuttcrcd up and down Jiroadway even as tho milky Is tttrctchcd along the starry path of heaven. Xiiko tho ghotvt of tho Intc Colonel he will not clown. He stands llko a magnet to draw coin from tho pockets of He delights in tho tempting display of his but lie has no time for merry UaiU- ttape or playful raillery. Ho is terribly in envncfit. Whether ho is selling pocket combs or collar buttons or advertising false it is all tho same. Ho is there to please a fastidious hut economical and he will come as near giving you nothing for something IIK anybody you vrould strike in a week's journey. Little children love him and older folke enjoy his windy declamations concerning the virtue of his and altogether he Is not such a bad after all. He may cell yow o real for 10 but that Is your lookout. It is you who should bo prosecuted not he. He may sell you a lot of cheap collar but that Is what ho is there He makes no false claims concerning and you get your money's worth. So -what more do you The articles he has for rale may be ridiculously cheap. as a general they are tho There is not a block on Broadway from Franklin avenue to Market street on which the street fakir may not bo seen at all hours of tho day and until lato at night But the place he is to bo found at the tiacle of glory Is between Washington av- enue and tho alley at tho on tho west side of Broadway. He is particularly prominent In the oftornoon. On tills particular block a dngo banana peddler occupies tho position of honor. Ho had jumped a cktim on tho corner of Broadway and Washington from which point of vantage he boldly pro- fear of successful contra- as they say in amateur debating that he is selling bananas for Ho stands with his hands in his coat pockets and moves restlessly up and down from one end of his cart to tho oth- eying the public surreptitiously and anon calling out in choicest Nobody knows how he docs but ho makes moro money out of that business than an Irishman could out of a saloon and grocery store. Next to tho fonnana emporium is an old blind grinding away for dear life on a wheezy hand organ. She plays I Nellie Gray1' and In tho Arms of Jesus11 and various other sentimental and religious and she exhausts her reper- tory about 47 times a day. It is a fact that these hand organs arc purposely construct- ed with missing and this hiatus gives tho music a despairing which makes you eo gloomy on a bad day that you feel like giving tho owner of tho infernal machine your week's salary. A glib tongucd attired In a waiter's or baker's whlto came near causing a stampede on Broadway Friday afternoon. Nobody seemed to know where ho came from. He appeared on tho scene opened up n small table with legs like a camp and in less than a jiffy was Go tell your friends to tell thcJr friends to telegraph tho to tell their that Taffy from Knla- the maker of tho taffy and the poor man's is here Every other fakir on tho block looked up in consternation. The blind woman got as fur as in tho and stopped. The banana peddler scowled. A crowd commenced to and tho fakir took up n bunch of tho stringy shin- Ing like silken and gurgled in melting look Melts in your mouth like ico Taste it iind try it before you buy Children cry for it Old maids sigh for itl Sweeter -than Try Thus he proceeded with nn endless chain of persuasive and in n few min- utes he had disposed of his stock and dis- The. gentleman with the rusty standing next to was much put out this which had inter- rupted his work of showing the ladles how to mend tinware with solder which he teas selling at underground prices. Next to him were two fakirs who might be called general for they keep everything from cheap stationery up to snide or rico just as you we fit to class them. But their principal stock in trade are shoe laces. They have shoe laces till you can't black and and they make a surprising num- ber of for the articles are genuine and men buy them on the ypur of the mo- because they need them and can nev- er think of them when pnsring a shoo store. Tho Inevitable fakir who is disposing of bone collar buttons at the of 12 for 3 cents and tho number of pedes- trians who stop to examine wares is surprising. This is a genuine bargain in the eyes of mae men. for somo men will itistet on wearing bone collar The busy pedestrian on Broadway by with scarcely a glance at the Imt of snen and women of the poorer clones. who are hunting to liflett to the cries of the many of xchlch alluring as well as and to czamlne their wares and probably irmkc one or That they succeed in making an honcft often in the face of coaqncml hilc lew indnstrkmg ciUtctis arc ca the St. IxmU Many of tbe planter of ttons of fine are a great addition to a library or rooia and familiarize the yxmngrr the tenily with noroo the best Trorks of ancimt sculp- tors.
