Broadway uromeuaders most observed and
Identified Just now are Edwin Booth and
Lawrcnco Barrett. Tholr clean-shaea faces
nnd complexions muddled by long uso of
paints add to their uniqueness. .Booth looks
Eombre and rotlccnt, while Barrett is still
more stiff, and reserved. Theso Teterans are
long past the age when actors are fondest of
showing on", and it is not to bo presumed for
un instant that they aim at personal exhibition
in thus conspicuously walking In Broadway.
Closo beside them are a jouujr. couple In very
interested dialogue. Tho fellow Is tall and
gaunt, but ho has n singular air of satisfaction,
which may parti) arise from the fact that tho
notably pretty girl at his sldo Is his alllanccd
bride, lie IsMaryAndcrsou's brother Jocscph,
who" performs in her company under the
name of "Mr. Joseph." Tho maiden Is ft
daughter of Lawrence llarrett. Tho wedding
li set down for next mouth. Perhaps this
piece of matrimony may cct Mary Anderson
into pretentious Nov York society, for Miss
Barrett is there already. Tho reader asks If
Miss Anderson, by means of her professional
eminence aud prh ate virtues, Is not already
eligible? Yes; and yet sLe is uot Invited Into
Fifth avenue parlors. New York Is peculiar,
and very foolish In Us social treatment of
(tago people. Cultivated and particular Bos
ton draws the lino only at true goodness, and
will lloiilzo any great actor or actress whoso
personal reputation is clean. But It is not so
Chnrlty nnd I.inv-JJeck Oowns.

As she in a German l'rinccss tho queen of
(Sweden, of course, attaches great Importance
to otlquct. At tho same lime her deep dcslro
to relieve poverty of every kind prompts her
to favor what Carter calls "the simplification
of life." Sometimes the conflict botwecn
these two Interests leads to funny incidents.
For example, on ono occasion tho queen was
told that somo ladles did not caro to be pre
sented at court on account of the great ex

revelation to tho queen, and a thought struck

How Slio l'ropnse to I'rovido for Thorn
Without Costing Homcir Anything.
It la In contemplation, says Labouo
chcro In London Truth, to cut down tho
salaries of tho Lord Chamhorlain and tho
Lord Steward from 2,000 each to 500
each, tho master of tho horso is to bo re
duced from 2,500 to 500, and the
captains of tho gcntlcmen-at-arms" nnd
tho yocman of tho guard, respectively,
aro to bo dealt with in a similar way. It
Is certainly preposterous that wealthy
peers should leceivo laigc salaries for
performing ornamental duties at court,
and their ''perquisites'' nro nho very
handsome, Tho Duko of Poitland, for
example, cots 2,500 a yoar.with the use
of a suitable number of tho royal car
riages, horses and servant.
I hear thnt It Is ntso Intended to do-
privc tho eight lorda-ln-waltlng of their
salaries of 700 a year each, or, rathcr.to
pay them a certain sum for every turn
of duty, which In many cases would
moau no emolument whatever, ns tho
Queen never requlros tho attend
nuco of a lord-ln-waltlng during her
residence at Osborne and Balmoral. Tho
chapels royal,whlch cost about 12,000 a
year, aro also to bo considerably reduced,
nnd it is in contemplation to abolish tho
royal haunt altogether a reform which
I tnko it would meet with very general
approval. Tho slucenro pallamontary
offices of treasurer nnd controller of the
household ( E00O n vcar each) will bo
amalgamated nnd tho salaries cut down
to ono of 500; and a similar courso will
bo taken with tho postn of vlco chain
bcrlin and comptroller, tho former of
which is rarlimontary and tho latter
Jloreovcr.tho richer permanent offices
in.tho'.housohold aro to uo dealt with In a
similar way, ana in mc munimiue, puuu
ing tho dolivery of tho "secret and con
fidential" report of tho commission,
no offices nro to bo filled up not oven
tho vacancies in tho body-guard.
Tho result of nil theso changes whon
they come into operation will bo a very
large annual savine, and I am informed
that Instead of this" money coming back
to the country it is to bo oppropriatcd by
privy purse with the ostensible object
of making a provision for tho Queen's
grandchildren. What with Her Majesty's
own accumulations during tho last
forty-clgbt years, for saving commenced
directly after Prlnco Albert's arrival in
tho country, aud bis Immense fortune,
and tho quarter of a million which Mr.
Kield lett to tho Queen, I should say
that there must already ho run pi a funds
enough to provldo most liberally for tho
uonnaugut, uurisuan, Aluanv ami uat
tenburg families, who mo tho only ones
in need of assistance,
It strikes mo ns doubtful, however,
whether theso changes can bo made
without tho consent of Parliament. Tho
amount requisite for tho civil list was re
ported on by n committee of tho House
of Commons, and this amount was
arrived nt by an estimate of tho total re
quired to meet certain charges which
wero deemed part and parcel of the
attributes of royalty. If theso charges
aro uo longer incurred it is obvious that,
ns n matter of honcstv.lf not ofjlaw, tho
accounts saved should go into the na

In tho "down-town" Btreets yosterday
thero was the usual clatter of horses and
trucks, nnd cars and people, and the
rumbling of a great city wont on just as
it has every day for a week, but thero
was missing one clement of mighty noise.
It finally dnwnod upon him who is hourly
In tho streets that tho innumerable cal
liope sellers and blowers had vanished.
Chief Hubbard had ovldently had ono
sounded closo to his ears, and tho Police
Department had como to tho conclusion
that tho calliope was a nuisance. Orders
were Issued Thursday morning to "chaso"
tho calliope merchants, and like the dew
before tho sun they had lied before tho
Tho calliope or this particular ono
made its appearanco on tho streets live
days ago. In size and shapo It much re
sembles the copies of tho Now Testament
given out in tho mission Sunday schools.
v non mown upon u gavo rorin a lull
octavo of noises. The noises caino from
n scries of thistles from n high-toped
sharp whistle to a deep-voiced long wills
tli. Tho whistles were holes liko all
other whistles, bored into tho book
shooed block of wood. Tho poor and
lowly as woll as tho rich and mighty
could play upon thoso pipes, for tho re
tail price wnR "ton cents a dime a
tenth of a dollar." To accept tho pro
nunciation of tho merchants who sold
them tho instrument was "Knl-ie-ope."
When it tnndo its nppcarnnco on Mon
day tho musicians who played upon it got
no other music from it than tho cxcrchc
of tho scale, and all along on Clnrk and
Madison nnd .Stato stroots, small boys
passed it through their mouths from side
to sldo llko n big slice of bread, anil
caused n to utter wnus oi agony nuo nn

On Tuesday tho musical oar could de
tect amid its moans and Rcrceches at
tempts at popular airs.
On Wednesday three dnys' practice
had transformed tho calliope into u Now
York hand organ, and "Pretty Fisher
Maiden," "Marching Through Oeorgla,"
nnd 'In tho Gloaming" wore In tho tilr.
But for tho Tiollce interference thu calli
ope would Thursday have been giving
forth grand opera. Tho voleo of tho
calliope will not be hoard in tho land to
any great extent hereafter, but had tho
mother of Orpheus struck tho town on
Monday she would no doubt have raised
such 6. rumpus over tho pionunciatlon of

would have been nipped iu tho bud.

London, Dec. 21. Sir Henry Drum
mond Wolff, tho Uritish envoy at Tohe
ran, was not long permitted to onjoy tho
reputation of having thwarted the policy
of Russia in Porsla, slnco tho Shah's
government has already acceded to ovory
demand mndu by Russia respecting her
agent at Merited and in connection with
other matters. Probably tho least pru
dent act every approved by Loid Salis
bury was that of tho draft convention of
187l5, by which Herat was to bo glvon to
Persia, and England wns to accept a
vogue responsibility for tho Persian
frontier, which for moro than a thousand
miles faces that of Hussia. Thoy
are plavlng witli ilro to Intrigtto
against Russian Influence iu tho north of
Persia. Tabriz, tho largest city, nnd
Teheran, tho capital, nro utterly lime
ccsslblo to Lrltlsh troops and completely
defenseless against tho forces of Rusiln.
It Is tho opinion of thoso best Informed
that England can and certainly ought to
hold supremo Inilucnco iu the Persian
Gulf nnd tho opening of tho Knrum
River to freo navigation admits of a cer
tain extension of English Inlluenco which
nono In thnt region can dispute. Hut in
all the territory bordering tin tho Cas
pian Sea, tho Inlluenco of Russia must bo
paramount. Lord Salisbury has warned
Sir Henry Drummond WoliT, who oc
quirctl a dangerous passion for notoriety
while a member of tho Fourth party,
against further mlschlcf-mnking,
Parliament was prorogued to-day un
til February 20. Tho membors of both
houses assembled in tho Houso of Lords,
where tho Queen's speech doclarcd that
England's forolgn relations continued
friendly. It expressed regret that tho
flshorlcs convention with tho United
States had not commended Itself to !tho
judgment of tho American Senate. Tho
"Temporary agreements, howevor,
which hnvo been adopted will, I trust,
prevent any immediate incouvonlenco
arising from this discussion. A conven
tion for tho abolition of sugar bounties
has been signed by representatives of
most of tho sugar producing countries."
Roferring to tho nttorapt of tho Sou
dnueso to possess themselves of Suakim,
tho speech says: "Tho besieging forces
wera illsncrsed bv n brilliant military
operation, in which tho Egyptian forces
wero supported by thoHritlsh contingent.
Aside fiom tho troubles at Suakim, tho
administration and economical progress
of Egypt nro satisfactory. An insurrec
tion provnils in tho dominions of tho
Sultan of Zanzibar, which is largely duo
.to tho renewed vigor with which the
slavo traflic Is carried on.
"I have talncd the Emperor of Oor-
ninny in establishing a naval blockade at
Zanzibar in order to prevent not only tho
exportation of slaves on tho East African
coast at that point, but also the importa

HOW TO CARVE A TUKKEY.
Study Theso Points Ilcfuro Your Christ
mas Dinner 1 Itendy,
t'rotix the Xeu York Worltl,
Very fow heads of farallicsormcmbers
of tho household in any capacity can
carvo a turkey in a truly sclcntiflc style.
It has been claimed that .carving Is an
nrt, but there is littlo doubt that a few
points on tho dissection of a fowl well
studied and thoroughly digested will go
i goodly distanco towardsmak!ng anov-
lco an expert, iioro are somo points on
how to carvo n boiled turkey which Is as
good an illustration ns can no given:
Tho legs of a boiled fowl always bend
Inward aud tuck into tho belly, but, be
fore It is put upon tho table, tho skowcr
by which thoy aro secured ought to bo
removed. Tho fowl should bo laid -on
tho carver's pinto, and tho joints, as they
uro cut off, placed on tho dish. In taking
oft the wing tho joint only must bo di
vided with tho knife, for by lifting tip
tho pinion of tho wing with tho fork
and then drawing it toward tho logs, tho
muscles will separate iu n much better
form than you can effect by cutting with
n knife. Xcxt pluco tho knife botwecn
tho leg and body nnd cut to tho bono;
turn tho leg back with the fork, and tho
joint will civo way if tho fowl is young
and woll done.
Tho merry thought is taken out whon
tho legs and wings aro all removed; thu
neck bones aro taken off by putting in tho
knlfo and pressing it under the long,
broad pitrt of tho bono; then lift tho neck
bono tip and break It off from tho part
that sticks to tho breast. Tho breast it
self has now to bo divided from the car
cass by cutting through tho tender ribs
closo to the breast, quito down to tho
tail; then lay tho back upwaid. put your
knlfo into tho bono halfway from tho
neck to tho wings, and on raising thu
lower end it will readily sopurato. Tho
last thing to bodono Is to turn tho rump
toward you and neatly take off tho sides
men. Each part should bu neatly ur
rungud on tho dish.
Thu turkey should not bo divided till
tho breast is disposed of, but If it bo
thought proper to divide, tho same
process must bo followed as directed in u
fowl. Tho following is the best modo of
serving tills delicious birds Hegin by
cutting eloso to tho breast bono, scooping
around so as to leavo tho moro pinions.
Each slico should carry with It a portion
of tho pudding or foicemeat with which
tho craw Is Bluffed,
In carving a roasted fowl, oxpert
carvers always first disjoint tho thigh
bono from tho body. Then "the part
thnt goes over tho fonco lost," familiarly
called by various other names, is cut
from tho bodv. Tho breast next needs
