These gentlemen Are authorized Back up representations As to the extent and Quality the Tribune circulation in a a which is As unusual we think with newspapers As it should be satisfying to patrons our columns. Cincinnati Tribune co. Tribune Relief. Contributions continue to come in to the to Ibone Relief fund and they Are acknowledged from Day to Day in our local columns. The Best statement As to How the Money is expended is found in the detailed report cases. It would be impracticable to relieve such a Large number cases but for the voluntary contributions referred to. In addition to the Cash amounts which Are acknowledged a Large Quantity supplies mainly clothing has been received and All it is being distributed. To those who May urge that Wiir work distribution is crude and ill considered we May state that the most the cases coming to us Are vouched for by the leading Relief organizations the City. Wheel such endorse in ent accompanies the cases we have not thought it Best to investigate but to promptly afford the Relief. Cases not so endorsed by established Relief bureaus we have per tonally undertaken to look into guarding particularly against the danger relieving unworthy professional cases. It is proper to say that one the most efficient the Relief agencies in this Peculiar work is the Elizabeth Gamble Deaconesses Home. Thirty eight trained Active and consecrated women give their time to the amelioration the sufferings the poor wearing the garb de amp Cones. They go into the Homes poverty and distress everywhere and know thoroughly the cases they Are dealing with. Their Peculiar fitness and preparation for this work make them Well adapted to the Relief needy cases. Their processes discover the meritorious but shrinking cases that do not come to the front and present themselves to the associated charities and other agencies. We have Felt assured that the Money that has been expended by these women has gone to the deserving cases without respect to Creed race color. We shall carry Forward this work so Long As the exigencies the present situation continue. The seventeenth Ward. William e. Beard the seventeenth Ward whose term As a member the Board legislation will expire in april is seeking a re election. He is personally a respectable gentleman and would make a first class representative were it not for the fact that he is in the employ the Cincinnati electric Light company which As nearly every one knows is merely an adjunct the Gas company. This fact has made in necessary for Beard to vote with the a a gang in the Board All vital questions and has compelled him to give his support to measures which must at heart have made him ashamed himself for supporting. He should not be in the Board. He has opposition in his Ward for the nomination and it is Likely that he will be beaten. If not beaten then he should be Defeated election Day provided a Good Democrat is opposed to him. The Ward is Republican and a Good Republican should be nominated. The names so Many Good citizens the word occur to us that we must select ohly a few them with the suggestion that they take the matter nominating a Good candidate in hand at once and carry it through with the support the other Good citizens the Ward.

Tins Tbs but be made a contract for 1,000 tons Coal with entirely responsible parties for delivery it the rate ten cars per Day. The mine was ready to ship the Coal and cars were promised. The Railroad company however has not provided the transportation As rapidly at expected. We received tuesday two carloads which were promptly delivered the orders taken monday morning. Yesterday we received six carloads which were also quickly distributed. We Are notified the arrival seven cars More in the City and these will be distributed As rapidly As possible. Further shipments Are being urged with such Energy As the agents the railroads at this end have been Able to command. All we can Promise is that As fast As the Coal can be got through it will be delivered to the hundreds buyers who left their orders with us monday morning. It would be manifestly unwise to take More orders until All these Are delivered and More ooh a is the track Here. Any the people who left their Money for Coal monday morning and Are impatient at not receiving it can get tie he Money Back at any. Time by calling at the office. Attention is again called to our original announcement that this Coal is just a it comes from the mines and is not screened. It is All pure Coal but includes the Large lumps and the Fine Coal in the 9ame shipment. Repeal the Sherman Law. If anything were lacking to prove the utter insincerity democratic platform declarations principle the present attitude the democratic senators in respect to the repeal the Sherman Silver Law 1880 supplies the want. One the most vehement denunciations in the Chicago platform is pronounced against that legislation. The last Campaign in the Eastern states at least was fought the theory that the Sherman Law was steadily and surely debasing the currency and that it must be repealed. The republicans wire held responsible for that Lugi Slatich and denounced in unmeasured terms. It is Well known that the Sherman Law was Biassed As a Compromise Between the hon�9t-Money men and the free coinage advocates. It never had the Sanction those who had sound views currency questions and was Only submitted to by them As a Choice evils. Now however when an honest Effort is being made to put a Stop to this rapid dilution our currency the democratic senator false to their party doctrines As formulated by the National convention set themselves against such repeal and with the Aid a handful fryc coinage senators who have heretofore acted with the republicans but who practically left that party at the last election will probably succeed in continuing the present unfortunate condition affairs. It is stated Good authority that if but ten democratic senators will come to the support the repeal measure it will prevail but it is feared that number cannot be secured and the government must go piling up the White Metal pigs at the rate fifty four millions ounces annually to the injury our currency and the Public credit. Hypocrisy in individuals is contemptible in great political parties where the Good name the government is jeopardized thereby it is monstrous and should so Shock the Public conscience As to result in such declarations disapproval As will cause rec usant legislators to disregard the caucus dictation and act for the general welfare. If it be that the democrats refuse at this time to repeal the Sherman Law because they do not want the republicans to have the credit for such repeal and that they intend to repeal it at the next session it Means that they will be directly responsible for the Purchase and storage an additional fifty millions ounces pig Silver Between this time and the meeting the next Congress. If they Are willing to assume this Burden just at this juncture they will find that the credit they expect to derive from such action a year hence w ill have been to heavily discounted by their present position As to amount to nothing. A to the thoughtful consideration the people and the Reform press the legislative system known As the initiative and we presume that the policy How being exploited at Topeka by the populist minority �3 a the if we Are Correct in that presumption we look with dread for the next stage in the system known in populist phrase As the a a Little that a system legislation goes a great ways and we Trust for the safety free government and for the Honor a Sovereign slate that the world May be spared further development the system. Be polite to your plumber in Zero weather. Politeness always has a thawing influence. As there will be an enormous demand for ice at tie world�?T3 fair and As nature has bountifully provided a full Supply the Chicago Man with an Eye to business proposes ice Trust whereby there shall be Lio loss borne by Chicago capital. There Are grave fear that our efforts to quarantine the Panama scandal will prove unavailing. Explorations in Utah Are unearthing some valuable relic3 Antiquity but the most remarkable curios any age Are to be found in the Kansas House representatives. Chicago brokers seem to be dealing in exposition space. This is hardly fair. From the action the French government the correspondents must have been telling the truth that hurts. It is pretty hard to Frame a Silver measure that has the True ring for All parties. Miss fair should not be so indignant at the reports that she was to marry Prince Romatowski. They Only indicated that she desired to win a name for herself. Wilex Gilbert a Rote a when the enterprising burglars not a gurgling a lie must have had a clairvoyant View that Chicago burglar who took every article furniture from a Flat not omitting the marriage certificate hanging the Wall. Senator Hill is having a Little the Sand taken out him. The one Man who has come smiling out the now York factional fight is Hon. Bourke Cockran. Even his Chicago speech seems to grow daily less embarrassing. Very like a lottery. The ruling attorney general Tyner the Post office department Definio the status papers conducting missing word contests. The decision is As ingenious and ingenuous too that it is Worth while to reproduce the essential portion. These contests became simply enormous lotteries in England and were summarily stopped. They will grow in number in this country rapidly enough and the ruling referred to is a permission to use the mails. Here is the ruling in part if to lib sentence in which a certain word i omitted is taken from a Standard author whose works May be found in most Public libraries the scheme is not prohibited by the lottery Law for the competitor May. From his general acquaintance with various writers be Able to locate the quotation and if lie does not take the trouble to search he May form some idea what the word is from his knowledge the authors style. The fact that the sentence is taken from a Well known author must be stated. Where however a sentence in which a word is to be supplied is composed by Rome person for the occasion and the missing word is known Only to him the contest would resolve itself into one dependent entirely upon a lot Chance a for there might be Many words each which would make the sentence intelligible. In such a Case even a guess would be futile and the prize would depend mainly the willingness the advertiser to award it. The sentences used by the publishers the sunday Mirror Are the latter kind and i am therefore disposed to Rule that the advertising scheme would Render the newspaper circular containing it a mailable. Or. Cleveland a frien Fis apparently think that the Hill Croker Row is Only a sparring . Kilgore Texas who Only permits pension bill3 to pass the House when he is asleep yesterday filibustered against the Lighthouse Bill. The Lighthouse Bill passed. If the typewriter Trust included the girls the Stock could be rapidly placed. Every Man would want a share. Whenever a Little puzzling problem comes up in financial affairs democrats and republicans alike turn to your old reliable financier John Sherman and he generally finds a Way out the Woods. Eighteen Hundred and ninety three is starting in its Roll illustrious dead very Early. England is billed for another engagement in Egypt. The prefix to the name Satolli could very Well stand for respect for character. Sex president Hayes great As have been hi3 Public services has not been lately conspicuous before the country. In carrying out the plan life Laid out by him when he retired from the presidential office he has been comparatively an obscure citizen. Lie has taken no High place in political discussion action. To Lias simply in a dignified a ostentatious Way employed himself in such educational and charitable work As has fallen in his Way. There has been much this to do but it does not produce publicity and while he has been an exceedingly useful Man he has had but Little general Public notice. But enough has Joeen known his character to arouse from Many quarters at his death evidences the profoundest respect. Telegram condolence have dropped like autumn leaves into the stricken mansion at Spiegel Grove Corning from sincere friends. Resolutions respect have been adopted by several state Legislatures and the legislature Missouri adjourned in respect to his memory. Our own governor Mckinley in a proclamation singularly appropriate in terms has told Why the state Ohio should do Honor to her distinguished son. The presiden elect Lias voluntarily Wihl Erinton he Long journey from the coast to Lake Erie in severe weather to Lay his tribute respect beside the Bier his predecessor. Comrades in arms will flock to his grave today to take the last look at the features their cherished companion and thousands citizens will today crowd the streets the City his Home to testify their regard for the honoured dead. Doubtless Many these Marks esteem Are i due to ills position As sex president. But that distinction Only served to heighten the value his character As an example governor Mckinley truly estimates that example Inlo in proclamation. The character cd president Hayes stands among the choicest treasures Ohio among the Rich legacies her departed soii3, and itt influence will be a perennial Blessing. Partisan journalism. Partisan journalism As an offensive feature our political contests i by no mean an outgrowth recent time. The Best men our nation have Felt its poisoned arrows and have suffered keenly therefrom. Thom a Jefferson one the purest our statesmen was the Especial object the vituperative shafts the journals his Day and has left the record his estimate that class literature which justifies the conclusion that the partisan journalism today is very similar to that which flourished january 2,1814, when . Jefferson wrote to a Friend As follows i deplore with you the putrid state into which our newspapers have passed and the Malignity the vulgarity and mendacious spirit those who write for them. These Ord res Are rapidly depriving the Public taste and lessening the relish for sound food. As vehicles for information and a curb our functionaries they have rendered themselves useless by forfeiting All title to belief. This has in a great degree been produced by the violence and Malignity party spirit. These Are drastic denunciations and show How keenly the writer Felt the stings the partisan writers this Day. Many our modern statesmen think As bitterly As Jefferson wrote though it is Good form nowadays to affect indifference to All hostile newspaper criticism. The seventh Resolution the National . People party commends the Young men Rise up against the typewriter Trust. Ali girls Are not included. Our inquiry about a Spring poet brought Many responses. Advertise in the Tribune. A Tariff ten cents a Pound done to put up the Mercury. Itiat concealing feature Charity that will not let the left hand know what the right hand does is noticed by the Tribune in Many Liberal Ned willing helpers refusing to give their names. The Charity that a deovers a multitude sins is a Mantle that covers the giver also. Ohio a Semi senator Brice is now alluded to in the commercial advertiser As from York.

A the Cloud with a Silver lining is at a discount. A new proverb is needed. It is quite chilling to read in fashion items for men that White Duck trousers will be worn next summer.

The bystander noticed a show window very handsomely decorated with All the accessories a feminine toilet necessary to a Correct and attractive appearance at the Charity Ball. The number and elegance these trifles is surprising and the bystander would gladly have inventoried the window had he known the names and uses the various articles. But time and natural modesty prevented. This however was not the Point the bystander started to make. It seemed so Chilly to look at these Dainty and pretty thing3 from snowy cold pavements. It was incongruous to look at Fluffy feathery fans with your eyes watering from the cold to look at Dainty lace like wraps and your feet tingling from the Frost. What would be Lovely woman in the warmth and brilliancy the ballroom is unattractive and repelling under other circumstances. O a child a questions Are hard to answer. A Little boy Friend mine just old enough now to appreciate Snow had his first experience snowballing a few weeks ago and in his Boyish enthusiasm stayed out so Long his hands were almost Frost bitten. During the Active work in Progress to relieve him he said a Mamma who made All the Snow a his Mamma answered a god who makes a Well a said the Little fellow Between his sobs a i wish head a made it warm. Why did no the Mamma a so say we All Why not the death sex president Hayes recalls to the bystander in incident that aptly illustrates the Plain Home Loving character this Man. In his Campaign through the state years ago he was always entertained at the Home a citizen one our Interior towns. He was much avers to having anything done for his Especial accommodation. He did not want to be considered a visitor guest but one the household. On the morning a Day he spent there he arose and came Down stairs to the parlor. The stiff formality the room depressed hi3 spirits Hud hearing voices across the Hall he went to the sitting room the family and softly opening the door said a let me come in Here i want to be with the children for it seems like Home a and after that the parlor was never reserved for governor Hayes. This cold weather reminds me another a Winter several years ago. At Itiat time the Moonlight in Cincinnati had not yet lost its Luster. The veil smoke was not then As thick As it is now. Somehow that veil seems to have thickened horribly in the last few years. What i am going to Tell happened a Moonlit night. The sky was Clear Blue. You know that Beautiful Blue we sch the sky often takes when the Moon is in its splendor. It is different from the Blue Day but just As vivid. The Clouds will lie upon it like masses glimmering ice. The whole atmosphere is a shining Refulgente. The world is wrapped in a Peculiar Light at once Brilliant and indistinct. Through such a night i was walking into town Down Gilbert Avenue. The ground was covered with Snow. I was heavily cloaked in order to keep warm. That Luminous night seemed to be the very embodiment the merciless splendor Winter. As i went along i saw a a meteor shoot across the sky. It passed it Over a Bank Cloud and trailed a Swift red line upon the Blue beyond. It seemed a sort occult revelation the cruelty the nigh. But As my eyes fell again upon the Street in front to i gave a Start. Two mishap pen uncouth forms shambles out the Haze Moonlight and Drew near. They were within a few feet. In a moment they had passed to and were gone. As they went by each looked into my face and their eyes were full misery. Apparently they were Vagabond Black men. Their clothes were merest tatters. But the curious part it was their noiseless Ness. They were absolutely silent. There was not. The slightest intimation a Boot crunching upon the Snow. Ever since i have wondered whether those poor wretches were Barefoot its promises fulfilled. The new Cincinnati morning daily the Tribune is gaining rapidly in Public favor and its phenomenal increases in circulation indicate that the venture into the Field clean journalism will be a Success.

Next thing you know Itgen. Sherman at Shiloh doing him an injustice. Publication letters that he wrote under cruel stress Anima versions that he gladly recalled afterwards. To the editor the Tribune the Century Magazine in publishing certain private letters general Sherman has done his memory a grave injustice. The Fame Sherman As an astute commander and As a great and successful general is Safe. His country proudly claims that the impartial analysis his unique but Brilliant career will secure for him a first rank among the few great generals history. After the Battle Shiloh general Sherman was under great stress indignation at cruel and unjust attacks upon himself by newspaper publications and he wrote painfully with a wounded hand private letters to his brother. These letters containing hot and cruel accusations against some his own soldiers were not made Public by the general while he lived. The statements in them do not Accord with his own official reports the same transactions nor do they breathe the spirit general Sherman toward men who were his comrades not Only at Shiloh but until he marched from Atlanta to the sea. This private writing to his brother under his surroundings and provocations is readily forgiven its publication cannot be. In his letter april 22, 1862, to senator John Sherman As printed in the Century lie says a the regiments that profess to have been surprised lost no officers at All and the two that first broke in my division the fifty third and fifty seventh Ohio the fifty third lost no officers and Only seven men the fifty seventh two officers and seven but read general Sherman Sov a official return the casualties those regiments in the Battle it will be found Page 253 volume 10, part i.

Religious people might not like to see profanity in the headlines but if they could get no better paper what were they to do and managers could go claiming that this was precisely the style paper the people like. The new Cincinnati paper is started by a company in which a Large number wealthy citizens Are interested for the purpose making such a paper As the moral and Quot respectable portion the people want. Its news a Price is the and messengers missed his paper. Ohio nine killed eighty two wounded thirty threat. comment is Best omitted. The wild and improbable accusations contained in general Sherman a letter dated May 7, 1862, show Only too plainly that his usually keen and Bright perception things was blunted by his temper. It does not defend. General Sherman against a charge being surprised for him to Call his own soldiers cowards and scoundrels. The temper these writings destroys their historic value. Their unfortunate feature is a Manifest Effort to exculpate himself from the charge being surprised by casting epithets and censure upon his soldiers. There is in the judgment the writer sufficient official and written record to show that two men acc least were thoroughly surprised by the attack the enemy upon our army the morning to unday april 6, 1802, at Shiloh Chapel. On Page 80, vol. X. Part i t he official records the War will he found a communication .1v if a Quot Quot to r a a l a a a it 1 0, 111 from major general it. S. Grant to general Halleck his Superior officer. It wa3 written the Day before the Battle Shiloh and i quote from it one sentence a i have scarcely the faintest idea an attack general one being Mufide upon us but we will be prepared should such a thing take general Grants action accords with his words. He was at Savannah term., when he wrote several Miles away from the Battle Field and there he remained until surprised by the Distant Thunder the enemy a artillery. On May 7, 1862, general Sherman wrote to his brother tie senator see Century Magazine i confess i did not think Beauregard would abandon his railroads to attack in addition to the fact that these commanders entertained no expectations being attacked they had not made adequate preparation for such tin event. Despite general Sherman a persistent insistence that he was not surprised he was certainly caught unprepared. The general must have been a Semper the careless Security Grant and a Sherman before Shiloh was never repeated. Only compare it with their vigorous but cautions Sybil in 1sg4. Great generals like Good soldiers begin by taking first lessons. 1 will quote general Sherman a description the attack by the enemy that sunday morning. He says a about 8 a. M. I saw glistening bayonets heavy masses infantry and became satisfied for the first time that the enemy designed a determined attack our whole Camp. They came a he says a with banners fluttering bayonets glistening and lines dressed the Center. It was n Beautiful and dreadful pliers arc living witnesses who say that when general Sherman Riding up to his front line Battle first saw this a a Beautiful and dreadful sight he exclaimed aloud a my god we Are attacked 1�?� at that moment his orderly was shot dead by his Side. Then flashed out the slumbering spark Genius our brightest quickest bravest Leader the Field actual Battle. Surprised but not disconcerted Sherman took up his task. Around him was much disorganization and confusion and All was the perilous Edge panic. There was no More striking figure in the War than Sherman in that awful fight. Who elsewhere arose triumphant Over such embarrassment As overwhelmed him Here ? not to Lier Idan at Cedar Creek for there he had a disciplined and Veteran array. General Sherman says a my division was made up regiments perfectly new nearly All having received their muskets for the first time at Paducah. None them had Ever been under fire beheld heavy columns the enemy bearing Down them. They knew nothing the value combination and what wonder that some these raw recruits ran away before the a dreadful sight the advancing rebel army. Rising Superior to defeat Sherman formed his ragged lines under the fire tie enemy and his soldiers held them. What carried to Herman through this Day Drill discipline organization he says were lacking. Earthworks defences had been neglected. Strategic mane vering the Field was not attempted. The personal and individual valor the american volunteers who handled the muskets and who were ignorant their own defeat carried Sherman through that Day at Shiloh. Not cowards but willing and eager for the Battle they Clung to every Inch ground and 20,000 lighting men held at Bay throughout the Long hours that bloody Day nearly twice their numbers. General Sherman a Star was bickering then in the fogs criticism calumny and charges insanity. A that saved his reputation in that dark hour Swift and cruel accusation was Victory snatched from Surprise and that was won at Shiloh by the individual valor and Fidelity common soldiers. Among these a regiment was scattered in that first morning attack by the act its one Coward its colonel. After they had begun the fight and fired two volleys in the face the advancing rebels this colonel ordered them to a Retreat and save the wonder is not that they broke but that under other officers a Large portion these men came Back to Sherman a front line Battle fighting there All that Day and lying there throughout that Stormy night. In such service they lost their seven killed thirty nine wounded and five missing. In the publication in the a Century general Sherman appears to Brand All members this regiment As a cowards and it is believed by the surviving soldiers the slandered regiments that their old general would have Cut off the wounded hand that wrote the letter before allowing such a publication. The splendid subsequent record the fifty third Ohio volunteers is As Safe As that to Weir general. General Sherman w Rote this regiment in 1865 a it has shared every Campaign and expedition mine since Shiloh is with me now and can March and bivouac and fight As Well As the Best regiment in this any other army. Its reputation now is equal to that any from the state when Sherman a feel Glass was raised to scan the parapets it. Mcallister his anxious gaze was fixed upon the fluttering flags Oga few Veteran regiments. With splendid courage and unfaltering Steps they swept straight Forward Over the ramparts and this Victory opened the Way for Sherman to the sea and Mode his Fame secure. These flags tattered and torn in Many Battles fought under his command were borne aloft by the same men who arc denounced us a a cowards and scoundrels at Shiloh in the Century letters. Does any one believe that the a old Man a if alive would have made this needless and cruel publication a Soldier. Its news service the dest. Cincinnati is fortunate in a new morning daily paper the Cincinnati Tribune which respects sunday is published Only six Days in the week and is free from sensational reports crime. Tipiere Are moral people enough in every City to support such a paper if they insist having it and will take advertise in no other. Newspapers managers have claimed that a paper must pander to the lower and Semi criminal elements society in order to make the desired profit. They have claimed that they make such a paper As the people want by which they meant such As the lower classes want. Very Many people feel that they must have a daily paper anyway and if they can Gat no other Are obliged to take what is puh shod. Tonowrj1 no it How soft argument quieted an irate sub s Scriber.

To the editor the Tribune i invoke your Aid behalf the residents Avondale for Relief from the injustice done us by the consolidated Street railway. One great trouble is the irregular and unreliable Way the cars leave the stables. After waiting Twenty minutes Rockdale Avenue the single car comes so crowded even then that there is no seat and before we get to the Power House it is crammed inside and wit i a dozen the rear platform to Long As poo pc will pay full fare that entitles them to a seat and stand up the company will not care but if we could get a Law passed to regulate thi3 so that those who have to stand when the fares Are collected Only pay three cents the company would soon Supply them with seats. I do it think people would submit to such injustice in any other country. I have heard there is a Law regulating the number to be carried by Public conveyances but if so it is obsolete. The legality the Extension to North fair count also needs investigation and would be useful occupation for some our Young lawyers. The terrible suffering the motor men and conductors from the Long hours is i suppose a matter their own but its cruelty is apparent when a simple contrivance for their Protection could be devised. If you can in your admirable paper bring people Good would i think result. Respectfully these facts before the it be Good a a daily sufferer. Familiar quotation cry acted. Some the most familiar a familiar quotations Are not strictly speaking quotations at All. I Lave just been reminded this by a correspondent who wrote to me for information As to the source the trite quotation a kept Thor even Tenor his Way a popularly ascribed to Gray. My correspond ent having expressed his doubts whether Gray anybody else Ever wrote the words i have had the matter looked no. The nearest that can be found to it appears to be the following extract from the nineteenth stanza Gray so a elegy along the Cool sequestered Vale life they kept the noiseless Tenor ther Way doubtless this is the Correct Reading. But Liow is it that orators preachers journalists and Raen in the Street have so unanimously agreed to change a a noiseless for �?oeven.�? London truth. Should have hoarded Silver. A year and a half ago the Philadelphia record says Itiat a citizen Philadelphia put a tin Box containing $280 in bilis in a Hole in his cellar. The other Day when he took it out he found that the Bills had become a mass Rotten paper. He took the relics to the sub Treasury where through the utmost ingenuity $240 was picked out and identified by the officials. The rest has been sent to Washington with an affidavit subscribed to before magistrate Eisenbrown in the forlorn Hope that the Treasury will not refuse to father its wretched offspring.

Butler was a wonderfully entertaining and delightful Mau socially. In politics lie was also entertaining but not so courier. A question measurements. It May take sixty eight measurements to constitute a Beautiful woman but one Span about the Waist makes a Happy York world. _ How fare the homeless poor for the Tribune i listen to the wild Northwestern winds As they play hide and seek this Winter night they bang my shutters like embodied friends and Chase each other with a fierce Delight. Around the barn and Down the Meadow Lone like pointless acrobats they turn Aud twist anon they come with drifts Snow again. And Challenge me through keyholes with their my Hearth defies them with its cheerful Bla e.

They were walking along Michigan Avenue say3 the Chicago times and the wind was blowing a Gale. The Young woman skirts were whirled about her in a Way that sorely impeded Progress. Her fur trimmed Cape blew up about her ears and knocked her hat rakish by one Side and altogether it was fairly evident that the present stye feminine attire was not adapted for pedestrian exercise Windy Days. As she bowed to the blast and clutched wildly at her hat he walked steadily by her Side smiling in a Superior fashion. Finally Hii appreciation his own attire became so Strong that he could not forbear to mention it. A i must say a he remarked a that women clothes seem to me highly ridiculous and inappropriate for such a Day As this. Of course Concilia tingly its the fault your dressmakers and milliners but admit its totally the Young woman raised her head to re when a sudden gust seized his Alpine hat Aud bore it swiftly and gracefully through the air for a few Hundred feet. Then it landed in a puddle left from the previous must Days rain and lightly skimmed the surface the water. The Young Man pursued and finally captured it and when he rejoined his companion she Only replied / a course its the fault your hatters but it is totally unaudited to this climate Isnit it a a a a we be got a new Industry in Newyl Ork a said George r. Elder a Gotham dog fancier at the Lindell to a Globe Democrat representative. A i Tell you its a Money maker too. For a Long time it has bothered our Ultra swell Young women How their pet pugs poodles spaniels and terrier should be taken care . Of course they do it themselves and in a majority cases the servants rebelled against such an addition to their labors. Servants can and do rebel in new York you know. Well during the past summer a fellow came along who owned a Boathouse at the foot some Street up in liar left he would take a dog and for so much a month he would give it three Baths a week. At first he had trouble inducing the women to give their dogs to a stranger but he finally overcame that and soon built up a fairly prosperous Trade y could see him almost any afternoon paddling about in a Small boat giving the pets a Wash. He made a reputation for handling his canine clients with gentleness and dexterity. Next he added clipping and combing to his line duty and does the work As artistically and As neatly As any master the to sorial Art in new boric. I understand that he carries the work indoors during the Winter. I Tell you that fellow has made a hit and if lie keeps it up he will quit some Day a Heap Richer than some his representative Grady North Carolina carries around with him a Coin that is 149 years old say a the Washington Post. It is a portuguese bit Money in appearance very much like the old Copper cent. On one Side Are the words a a Joannes y Dei Gratia a while the other Side the sentence a Rex Portugal ice Etc it is also ornamented with the Royal arms Portugal a Laurel Wreath and a Large x. It was found behind the mantelpiece an old House Cape fear River Between Fayetteville and Wilmington. But How it got there nobody knows. According to . Grady tli�3 part North Carolina is full historical interest. In Fayetteville there is a deep ditch known As the a Story a and do you know Why it is called the a tory Hole he asked. A Well i will Tell you. After the Battle Culloden George ii gave permission to the adherents the pretender to emigrate to America go to the Gallows. He compelled them to Lake the Atli allegiance to him and�?4hey Carite to Tilia country in 1749. A Large number settling the Cape fear River. When the trouble Between England and America arose these sturdy old Fellows believing that they were still bound by their oath were the Side the King and thus came to be known As tories. There was a pretty Lively fight in the old ditch but i am glad to say that they were Defeated. It is quite Likely that the old Coin was brought Over by one these emigrants 1749.�?� a As . Holman tells the Story himself it May not be violating any Trust to repeat it strictly in Confidence says the Washington Post. The employees one the government bureaus found they were not enjoying All the privileges and immunities the service in the matter leave and they set about to remedy the deficiency. A committee went up to the Capitol to sound the gentleman from Indiana the subject and found him in a most affable mood. When the Case had been put to him he frankly acknowledged that although he was stringently opposed to the granting leave any kind it was manifestly invidious to make any distinctions As if one set people were entitled to the luxury they All were. A that reminds me a continued the judge a a Little incident that happened last Winter. There was a night session and i was making my Way through the Capitol grounds when one the watchmen overtook me and begged leave to state his Case. He said that there was a Gross injustice in the difference Between the salaries the Day and night watchmen As the former received $2.50 a Day As against the latter a $�?~2 for much More trying work. I sympathized with his View the Case completely. I told him that such a palpable injustice should be remedied forthwith. We would equalize those salaries at once by taking that extra half Dollar off the Day and they did it. There is a Story going the rounds in Chicago that e. S. Illard the actor in addressing the twentieth Century club thursday afternoon was attacked by stage fright and had to assign his manuscript to another Reader.

Willard a do not speak More than half an hour you May get interested and forget the the actor promised to restrain himself and was somewhat nervous lest he might overtax his hearers. The result was that he abruptly ended when his hearers thought that he was Only warming up to his subject. A How Long do you think you have spoken a . Hamill asked the flustered actor who did not understand the applause which meant that he was to resume his remarks. A Twenty five minutes i suppose a said . Willard. A Only six a replied . Hamill.
