It is a known fact that science is modest am in the reverse ignorance and stupidity so mud more impertinent and brazen. There are bj no means exceptional cases that men who have never in their lives looked even scientific work and whose small sense of un derstanding is not sufficient to even under stand the first rudimental principles of scienc dare in a cowardly manner lo set in judgmen over men like Huxley; Darwin, Haeckel an others.

KKMKM11KANCKS Of BEECHKK; IHV Tilton, Fran.'lx B. Moultwn, Sviliiaiii M. Others Look anil Act. cw York (Jorix-siwiidence of the IJostou Her- iild. When I saw Oscar vVUde lounging disjomt- lly down liroadway, it struck' me hbw fe- arkably he was like a combination of Henry ard Beecher and Theodore Tilton, His cc closely resembles Ueecher's, without be- 'g half so strong, and his figure and re, embles Tillon's without being half so grace- 1. Oscar's ideas of beauty are good enough, ut in person he is a gawk, and I am paying m an undeserved compliment when I liken m to the two noted Brooklyn enemies. I sed to go often to Plymouth church, and nee in its veslibule, I heard a woman quote, ith manifest approval, somebody's declara- on that Tilton was in looks her ideal of hrist. She meant no profanation; nor did le woman who rejoined: "When I see fr. Beccher in the pulpit, with his ace radiant wilh the lofty thought 5 is uttering, he seems to me like od personified." A great depends on places ml conditions. The last time I saw Tilton e was one of the Sooo who were in the Madi- on square garden to view the prize fight be- ween Sullivan and Wilson. Only about half is long hair was golden, the rest having urned white; but his smoothly jhaven face was nwrinkled, his clothes had a characteristic ombination of neatness and negligence, and is personalism, striking any whftre.jwnsjdoubly 0 when surrounded by reeling roughs'. The ast time I saw lieecher he was lunching on rieri oysters and cider in a Kullon niarkat res- lie looked like a robust but uninU- akably old man, thinner in hair and thicker 1 paunch than formerly, but as boyish as ever n his frank, hearty manner. That other con- picuons feature of 'lieecher' trial of six years go, Francis B. Moitlton, is occasionally lo be een in the produce exchange neighborhood. Ic is very busily- concerned in a number if speculative enterprises and is be fast becoming a million- aire. Mrs. Tilton lives obscurely in Urook- yn, provided fnr in part by Tillon, and in art by several adherents of Heecher, but neither of these Iwo men, whom she brought o early lo ruin, goes near her. She goes to lear Bcecher preach sometimes, and, when he thus comes out of her privacy, shows elf a prematurely aged woman, bearing the nipress of mental and physical suffering in icr white face and stooped figure. A strange -utcomi; of the trial was thai llie leading law- er on each side slruck up a friendliness with lis opponent's client. Wm. M. Kvarts, whoso ong forefinger and loo-word cross-questions aimed at Tilton for a whole week, has ince kept up a pleasant intercourse wilh him, rhile Beecher and Dearh were rulmirinji friends before the case was fairly dropped, und lad remained so. i Nearly a car-lnad of grapes pnssed over he road this morning for tlie norlh. They were raised in the Mesilla Miner. William North Steuben, Ihe son of Jonathan Steuben, the revolutionary soldier, to whom Baron Steuben gave his name, is now living in Simla Clara county, California, at the nge of 74. The original name of Jonathan Sleu- ben was Arnold. Shortly after the treason of Renedict Arnold tlie Baron was reviewing the regiment of which young Arnold was a. mem- ber. Hearing by accident Ihe name of Ar- nold, he called for the man who bore il, and on seeing him said: "Change your name, brother soldier; you are too respecuble to bear the name of a trnitor." "Whose name shall I take, "Take any mine at .your service." was Ihe reply. The oner was at once accepted, and the first Am- erican Steuben was ushered into exislence al- most by accident. The present Mr. was born on "Steuben in Onida coun- ty, New Vork. A Turtle Seven J''eet Long. A hawkbill turtle, weighing some. 'Soo pounds, was captured hy Radsford Poland, of Ocean Beach, N.

The New York Sun, in its society column, says that the distinguished features of the Sar- atoga season have been racing, gambling, fast driving, dressing. A lady who has spent many summers of her life at this favorite Spa affirms that the extravogant display in coslum- jewelry this year has gone iar beyond anything she has ever seen al a public place. Morning dresses, such as lawns and cambrics, made in a simple and inexpensive way, were of no use, and remained in blissful repose al the bottom of her trunk. "I rose in the said this fair crilic, "and, in or- der to appear like other people, put on my best afternoon dress.' At I o'clock T changed it for my handsomest dinner gown; 4 o'clock saw me in my most elegant ball costume, and in the evening I had to go to bed, as I had nothing finer to Kven the babies were subjected to the same rigid discipline in regard to frequent changes of ribbons and the adjustment of their lace and cambric robes. 1'ncilio Kail way.
