Yesterday was circus day and everybody
knew it. The weather was threatening,
keeping all indifferent persons at home,
Imt the clouds managed to curtain them
selves until the affair was over. All those
who love the circus came to town and a
more enthusiastic lot of spectators could
not be imagined. All were thoroughly in
sympathy with the performance and the
carefully pondered jokes of the clown and
the thrilling feats of the trapeze perform
ers and contortionists as well as the grace
ful poises of the bare back riders, all re
ceived a gratifying recognition from the
auditors. Peanuts and gum were in fur
ious demand and nothing appertaining to
circus day was slighted. Even the horses
seemed to catch the spjrit of the occasion
and went through with their part of the
program with a precision that was aston
ishing. The reserved seats were packed
full, old men and boys, matrons and mjiids
in holiday, attire wero glorying in the
feats of strength, endurance and skill in
one ring in one breath, while in the next
the ease and grace of some finished turn,
were receiving favorable comment or they
were laughing until tears rolled down their
cheeks at the clown who destrously swal
lowed a property or inadvertently stepped
on an elephant.
The parade which took place in the
morning was a feature of the day and was
indicative of a big show. The band led
the procession followed by cages of ani
mals and a steam calliope bringing up the
rear, The menagerie was quite interest
ing containing a collection of the most
curious animals tiiat ever travel.
The matinee was well attended and to
ward evening it was noised about lhat the
Wallace and Anderson circus was worth
seeing. A full tent greeted the evening
performance. Principal bare-back trick
act by Miss Pauline Lee clowned by Mr.
Sweeney was a skillful and amusing per
formance. The flying sailor, Mr. Bemie Wallace
and menage act by Miss Jeannetta Eld
ridge and Miss Kosa Anarean were
loudly applauded. The ilying trapeze
act by Mis Lucille and Mr. Jordan was a
graceful turn. The daring leap for life was
n thrilling incident and accomplished with
cae. The riding was particularly good
and the horses all carefully trained.
Mr. Charles Ewers and Miss Rose Lee
did some fine jugglery on horseback. Mr.
Park Melrose did some finished rope
dancing, which was quite a novelty in its
One of the most graceful feats of the
evening was the bicycle riding by the Mel
rose family. The child bicyclist was very
clever. The family have been termed the
new centaurs, half human and half bi
cycle. Tho lightning hurdle act af Mr.
"William Gorman, the running globe act
by tho Misses Onri, and the boy and barrel
juggled by the feet by Mr. Joseph Judge
were all novel and interesting. The ma
jority of the audience stayed to the con
rert, which was much superior to most
after concerts, and even the side shows re
ceived liberal patronage and gave general
satisfaction. The Wallace & Anderson
show did a good business and left n good
impression behind for the benefit of their

The leautiful but pernicious white weed of

A LETTEE ABOUT EXES.

Washixgtox, M&7 1. On the floor of
the senate the other day I saw no fewer
than six ex-senators, hats in hand, chat
ting with friends and viewing; the scenes
of their former triuxiphs or disappoint
ments. These were Warner Miller, of
New York; Thomas J. dingman, of
South Carolina; Joseph E. McDonald, of
Indiana; Blanche K. Bruce, of Missis
sippi; Omar D. Conger, of Michigan, and
Augustas H. Garland, of Arkansas. Tho
presence of such a large number of for
mer senators reminded me that one of
the odd phases of life in Yashiugton is the
plentifulness of "exes." We see "exes"
riding by in their carriages, or begging
dimes on the street corner. They sit op
posite ti3 at dinner, or hang about the
barrooms waiting for an invitation, to
step up and take something.
The "exea" are everywhere, of all age3
and colors and previous conditions of
official servitude all excepting the pres
idency. We have no ex-presidents resi
dent here, though we have any number
of m?n who escaped that great office by
the slrin of their teeth, and not of their
own desire, but owing to circumstances
over which they had no control. Xo
former presidents are here, but there are
ex-cabinet officers, ex-senators, ex-con-'jresssien,
ex-commissioners and ex-gov-.moio
galore: and as for former wearers

Men vho livo in the national capital
for a time as servants of the people do
not like to go away. They are fascinat
ed by tho lazy luxnriousness of the life,
the beauty of the city and the social op
portunities here presented. That form
of society which is expressed chiefly in
good dinners and large, fertile punch
bowls most enthralls tho men, while tho
showy afternoon and evening receptions,
the teas and the endless round of dress
parades known as calling bind the wom
en fast in their toils. "What! Leave
Washington and go again to the fron
tier?" exclaimed the pretty wife of an
army officer at one of Mrs. Oates' famous
receptions last week. "Why, if that is
to bo my fate I declare I shall commit
suicide. Rather than go to the frontier
and leave dear, dear Washington I will
cut my throat." Tho pretty woman
meant every word of it, too, and she
made shivers run round the room by
drawing a fruit knife suggestively close
to tho white slrin of her neck. Then she
seized a glass of punch, quaffed it with a
laugh, and what had passed for a bit of
comedy in the minds of tho spectators
came to an end. But it was not all com
edy with the dashing woman, and her
poor husband, tho army officer, is out
hustling night and day for the influence
which may enable him to securo that
boon of boons in the service waiting or
ders at Washington.
"A curious commentary on this fasci
nation of Washington life," said Repre
sentative Hitt, who is one of the brilliant
coversationalists of the capital, "was af
forded by the surrender of Gen. Lee at
Appomattox. I was then living in the
National hotel, which at the close of tho
war was tho fashionable hotel of the city.
The house was filled with army officers
and their wives, and when the news
came from Appomattox and the jjeople
in tho streets began to shout and cheer
and flaunt their flags with joy I stepped
up to the parlors to see how happy the
ladies were. Imagine my surprise to
find three or four of them in tears, and
the others loolring very sad and solemn.
'What is the matter?' I asked one of
them. Havo you not heard that Gen.
Lee has surrendered to Gen. Grant?'
'Yes,' she replied, half crying, 'and that
is just the trouble. Wo know this means
the end of the war, and that we must
leavo Washington and go away to the
country to live again,' and then this wo
man, like several of her sisters, burst
into tears. I actually believe," conclud
ed Mr. Hitt, "that half of these gay
devotees of society would have been
glad to liave tho war continued a couple
of years longer that they might have re
mained in tho whirl of Washington soci
ety." With both men and women fond of
Washington life it is not surprising that
this is the place in which the "exes" most
do congregate. A man once famous and
powerful, whom many people thought
might Iiimself become president of tho
United Statos. now walks or drives tho
streets of Washington unknown to nearly
all who see him. Ho is a handsome
man, with iron gray hair, a fine profile,
an intellectual face. His name is Bout
well "Lawyer Boutwell" ho is called
by the few who know him and he was
secretary of tho treasury under President
Grant. He was then a social as well as
a political leader, and was seen almost
daily at receptions and teas. Now ho
eschews all such frivolities, and, like tho
average man of experience and sense,
confines his social exploits to Jie stretch

men in the city of Washington. He

in the face as the years go b", and the
circle of his friends appears to b& contin

and turtle steak, have you?" The friend
replied that he had, but said he wanted
terrapin. "Well," said the epicurean law
yer, "you jnst go down to Grorsce French's
any time and call for terrapin soup or ter
