ARE "SHARPS" SHARP? WHY THE CONFIDENCE TRICK STdER SUCCEEDS. Everybody klnows the coaventional division -of certain grades of society into '"sharps" and "flats." Accord ing to tradliton, carefully fostered by sensational fiction-writers, the sharp is a person of preternatural acuteness, against whom no ordinary person has a chance in a battle oi wits. The writer, however, who has re cently had exceptional opportuniies of studying the "heads," the ' nuts,'. of tile " clever division," in their happy hunting-grounds around Hay market and Piccudilly Circus, begs to differ. The sharp only appears so ly reason of the amazing foolishness of the flats he exploits. and is really a very coummonplace and even brain less person. Mlost of the devices for separating the tlat-or '' mug," or " piecan ' .from his wealth are as feeble as an in lant in arms. Take thisone, fo ir.n .stance: T:-.
