"It was this way/* said Freeman Bernstein, Tuesday, as he looked over his English cut walking suit and silk hat, "I knew a cab driver who was run- ning a hansom at a loss. The poor guy, I often told him he was in wrong trying to get coin with that plug and outfit, but he said the horse had been his daily companion for so long he felt a curse would fall upon him if he blew them. 'Tush, son*" said I to the animal driver, "look at all the curses I have had piled upon me and I still eat now and then at the Astor. You're a dub, driving this ikate to a cab that only crawls along with the taxis getting all the sugar. Be a night hawk behind a wheel. That gets real money, and ii you want to make a switch, I will steer the souses to you after three in the morning. "Well, do you know," continued Freeman, "that I had to talk to that fellow for three weeks before he would take a taxi on the installment plan. He wanted to reward me after two days' work. His first play was a stew from Cohoes, with an $80 bankroll and a phony watch. He cleaned him, but I wouldn't stand for that one, although he offered to split 50-50, even trying td put over the watch on me as my bit. His next was a lady who left a gold purse in the cab, without having taken the number of the machine. About $150 I should judge was the value, but I sidestepped when he saw me the next day, told me about it and wanted me to take $5 for a quart of wine, say- ing the gold had already started to wear off. "Finally he insisted that I should h?ve something for putting him in a riady money line. I didn't know what to ask for. The poor slob was earn- est about it, but he had slipped me dialog about a large family and I didn't want to deprive them of any thing while May was working (and put this in will you, I am getting $400 for May this week at Miner's Bronx. Some agent, eh? May thinks it's $300 she's working for, so don't print the price). "Well as I was saying, the guy said he would make me take something, so I thought awhile and then I asked him what had become of that suit and high hat he used to wear when driving the cab. He said he had thrown it in a ccrner of the stable. I told him to go dig it out, that I would wear it around Broadway and make Bill Lykens look like a piker on the dress thin^- "So here I am, kid, all dressed up, looking like a chicken, nothing? on my mind excepting a few unpaid bills, with May working and the landlord still keeping off even on the third of the month. Guess things arc breaking for me at last. "Hey, before you go, let me know which side of this hat shines the bright- est? The left side. I'll have the right side polished up tomorrow. Did you get the braid on the coat and vest? Soy, do you know that this is the best money getter I ever hit upon. T bave .ilready borrowed $108 today on the strcn^tb of the scenery, and froin peo- ple, too, wbo know nir. I'm all swollen up over myself. Wait until May gets a flash. Ret she will fall for me again."
