a deep sonorous voice camo up lo Ihcin ou

unmistakable nlr of pmlso so dear to all who
servo the master, and ins wito waited in urcutu

Tho wttgou was labeled "Uuttcr and Eggs,"

Ou nrrlvlmr homo Air. A. was rccountluc tho

Mr. a. who nlavs short-stop in tho War IDc-

and shot it out y th n vigorous: "U-un-ggh 1

Why don't thu men form an Antl-Stand-Up-League?
If all tho nicu In Washington who
rldo In street cars would become members of
an oath-bound organization, swo.ir that under
no circumstances would thoy get up to give a
woman a seat lu ikstrcet-car, and stop further
ing tuo economic ucsignsoi thubtrtct'Cnrcom
paulc.thu lesult of the successful formation of
such n leaguo would be that when u woman,
pretty or otherwise, got ou a strcet-cnr In
which all tho seats wero occupied she would
look up one side und down thu other aud seo
that all tho men had mndo signs of thu A. S.
U. L., whatever It might be, rusting tho tip of
tho right thumb on tlio rlfcht knee, with tlio
lingers closed, for Inntancu, us wo used to do
when wo played, "Simons sajs, 'thumbs
Then she would wave hor hand to tho con
ductor aud get oft tho car. When tho noxt
car camo along she would look to seo if all the
seats were occupied. If thoy wero sho would
cither walk or r.do on another lino of street
cais. Then tho bloodless corporations who
run tho sticet cars would put on more cars,
und Insldu of a fortnight cars enough would
be run to glvo seats to nil passengers. Hut
now nine womeu out of ton climb calmly Into
n crowded car in full conlldenco that somemau
will get up to glvo her n seat. And as It
doesn't cost uuy nioro to run a car lu which a
dozen or moie passengers are standlm: up
than It does to run an empty ono these "stand
up" fares aro clear profit to tho company.
It might bo miller hard ou tbo wouion for a
week or two, until tho bar companies camo to
terms, but in tho end tho foimatlon of tho
leaguo would result lu Intrcftsed comfort to
both tho passcugcrs and thu conductors. It
mlgliOo wcllto suspend thu rules of the
leagiie-oti''ralny dojs, because then it would
bo rather too bard rfn the women to forco
them to wait-on street corners for nil empty
car or walk a couple ot squares to another
Hue, but-on all but such occasions tho rules
should Kdlullexible. Alcmbcis might find it
difficult, to fcstiuln their Washington gal

,not be found anywhere else in tlio world and
Mt still while u-prctty woman hung to a strap
aud made eyes nt him, but the consciousness
that ho was sufteilug In a good cause would
lend him strcugth, and tho lazy men would
find their membership an ample oxcuso for

AT AI.DAUCIIl's "TI1K LADV Oil Till! TlOnit."
ltoscnfold's opera, " Tho I.ady or the

Company at Alhaifgh's ' last night for tho first
tlmo horo. Thero was n big audlcnco and a
lino 0110 In attendance, nnd Itnpprcclalcd every
point mado. Everybody who has read Frame
cHocktou knows tlio opera's plot, DoWolf
Hopper, as tho Kinq, Is very funny; much
funnier than Mr. Kusunfcld's conception,
though possibly not qulto so refined. Mr.
Angells' Me namlcr wnsn't very pretty, but It
was very able, and so wrro tho king's senators.
Mr. Duugnti aud Mr. Oudln mado a hand
some pair of Greek Ofllcers, nnd Mr, Oudln's
voice won for hltn enthusiastic applause and
recalls wero quite lu drder. Ilo sines ns few
men do now in comic opera. Mls Manoln's
Irene was quite (J reck In rosiumo aud person,
and Annlu Myers as Jlilaria was prettily
hilarious; particularly when iu a chorus she
proceeded to thiow herself upon the bonded
kuco of Theotychidcs, aud knocked him clean
This llttlo contrctempi won tho hoarilcst
laugh of the evening. Miss Kuapp us "tho
Lady" spoko not, neither did she (lug, but sho
wns pretty enough to do neither. Mrs. Laura
Jo)ce-Uofl's Volyiena was dono us bhu does
everything, for all thero Is In it. KVeryoody
did his part well, nnd If tho opera wore iu tho
hands of less capablo people It would fall Hat.
The music calls for good volcos well handled,
and the libretto calls for people who can do
more for It than the author did. Miss Manola,
Miss Myers nud -Mrs. Hell were remembered in
llowcrs at tho closo of tho first art. Tho
chorus girls aio very much better looking
than tho average Again to-night und nintluio

The Initial performance of thu ltedlnuud
Barry Coiubluatiou nt tho Bijou last night
brought out a largo nudlcnco, which was
liberal in its demonstrations of approval. Mr.

romantic nctois ou the stage, and this play,
"Ilcrmlnlo; or, tho Cross of Gold," of which
ho is tho author, affords nbuudant scopu for
Mrs. Barry wns Impressive in emotional
passages and n favorite as usual. Tho kulfu
contest between thu hero as presented by Sir.
Kedmuud aud Sir. Walter 1 tinge, ns tho

WHAT A PRETTY BABY. '
Is It a hoy or n girl 1 How often do wo hear this remark and question.
Yes, It is a pretty baby, but how bad its mother looks. Sho looks as if sho
wero going right down. She 53 so thin nnd yellow, nnd her fnco is covered with
wrinkles and blotches. She seems so nervous aud irritable, too; but it is easy
to account for her condition. Child-birth lias left her with prolapsus, or other ,
displacements, and weaknesses, nervous prostration nnd general debility. Tlio '
best tiling sho can do Is to uso Dr. Tierce's favorite Prescription, which has
been prepared for tlio express need of women In this condition.
As a powerful, ittvlu-oralliifcT tonlcf it imparts strength to tho wholo system,
and to tlio womb nnd Its appendages In particular. For overworked, "worn-out,"
" run-down,'1 dehllltnted teachers, milliners, dressmakers, seamstresses, "shop
girls," housekeepers, nursing mothers, and fecblo women generally, Dr. Plerco's
Favorite Prescription is tlio greatest earthly boon, belug tincqualcd as au ap
petizing cordial and rcs'toratlvo tonic, or strength-giver.
As a soothing nutl streiigtheulng nervine, "Favorite Prescription " is unc
qualcd aud is invaluable in allnying and subduing nervous excitability, Irritabil
ity, exhaustion, prostration, hysteria, spasms and other distressing, nervous
symptoms, commonly attendant upon functional and orgauio disease. It
indnccs retreshitig sloop and rolievcs mental anxiety and despondency.
