Another burst of Smoko came up the Shaft und a Sheet of Dame followed for an instant. The Umbers became a of fire. The hoisting works went like a Box. The Engineer must not ouly bring Tow Cage to the surface but must Stop it there. The machinery was growing hot to the touch. The reached the Bottom then came the signal to hoist. Just As he re versed the lever n falling Timber knocked him senseless. A men sprang to the unmanned engine but Mark was there first and pick ing up the body at his feet he handed it to the nearest two men if it Hud a child and merely said take him a Man clone at his Side leaned Forward to grasp the lever hut he Flung him Back into the crowd. A flare of flames sent them All staggering away. Mark Laid his hand upon the lever the first time in five years and grasped it with his old Energy. The hell was in his face. It would be a Long minute and a half before the the surface where he must prevent its dreadful ascent into the his hand held the gives of a Down men. Re faced the fire like a Sala Mander. A cheer went up and the folds of red smoke covered him from sight. The Cage reached the Shaft s Mouth full of men most of them insensible As they were dragged out. As Mark threw the lever Back to its place and stopped the engine the flumes closed about him. The superintendent called out thousand dollars to Tho Viau who saves a dozen Brave men had already started. It was too late the had Over whelmed him. Three Days later t he men whose lives he had saved dug among the ruins the engine Tiluy found his charred Natl stood by them a while with uncovered beads.

Their Money of themay curious classes of charities in the Vicinity of this City the ferryboat fairs come very near being the most interesting. To the passengers and commuters on the numerous lines of ferries at both sides of the City they have been a source of n increment for Many years. Probably the most interesting and Wel come character on the boats is an old negro. He begins operations with the Rush of traffic at 5 o clock in the afternoon. He takes it sent in the rear of the men s Cabin and just after the boat Start it walks into the passageway the two Cabins and begins to whistle very softly it first. The mocking with out a single break he finishes the Nir a Marvel of Sweet Ness and simplicity. Then he begins it again. This time a lit louder and with variations. Old men put Down their papers ind Lis ten intently Tho conversation becomes subdued then ceases the boys leave their and stand at the Entrance to the passageway but the Oid Darky never and All the time his wonderful exertion is becoming More and More melodious. Finally to launches off into n series of Sweet Tunell notes and a look of mingled interest and admiration steals Over the faces of All within hearing distance. Then he drops Bock into the air again and the tune is finished vory softly. Appeals to women. The old negro then walks to the end of the Cabin and holding his hat out bows Low and passes around the seals All the time whistling some Lively Little tune interspersed with melodious variations. The Nickels dimes and pennies rattle an accompaniment to his music and his nightly coi led ions vary from to on sunday nights he can be seen on the boats running from Cortlandt Street and then he selects the ladies Side of t he boat. Standing under one of Tho chandeliers with his hat in his hand he whistles nearer god to and repeats it with variations. All of his selections on sunday nights Are pop ular hymns and for his Sweet and soulful rendition of them be is Well repaid. Lately the attention of the passengers has been attracted by a deformed boy who works upon the different lines from Early morning until late at night. His entire left Side paralysed shorten in his leg and drawing up his . The Side of his face is also his clothing is poor and scanty. When the boat is Well out in the River boy enters the Forward door of the lady s Cabin and stands for a moment at the threshold apparently Uncertain what to do. Then he takes from an inside pocket of coat two Lesul pencils Sharpen etl and provided with Rubbera holding these in Bis perfect hand he limps slowly around in front of the seats pausing a moment be fore each passenger mutely asking them to buy. His face is a picture of despair and Many a dime and Nickel arc dropped into his hand. Nine out of every ten passengers refuse a Pencil after they have Given Hirry alms but u one is taken be continues his journey holding the remaining one out for Sale. If that too a opens to retaken the Little fellow Down and brings out two More from his inside pocket. The Little scheme succeeds admirably and to does not dispose of More than four or five pencils a Day. Tho boy is a professional beggar and under and training of his father. Athletic feats. Among the most interesting characters Are two Brothers Between the Ages of 14 and 17 years. As soon As the boat is Well on its trip they appear at one end of the Cabin and one of them taking off his hat says gentlemen if you have not got any objections we would like to entertain you for a few moments. Although we make our living this Way a Only ask for what you think we Are both Bow with a Quick movement the younger lad puts his foot in his brother s band and is thrown High into the air.
