Miss Apnes HuntinKdon, whose "Paul
Jones" will undoubtedly be one of the dra
matic and musical events of the heason, is
iu New York, well guarded by her mamma
nnd sister the former a stout, gray haired
dowager, and the latter a stately woman,
who strongly resembles the singer. Miss
Huntingdon looks a trille like Xordica,
but is built on a more generous plan, and
Las contmed during her London life to

notice in all pictures of professional En
glish beauties. There is the extremely
long, slim waist and square shouldors,
which were well sot off by a Liberty gown
of gendarme blue, garnished with velvet
of a darkor tint. Her large, smooth white
hnnds, with long, aristocratic fingers, were
blazing with gems, cliielly noticeable among
which were the Kapphiie and diamond
rings given her by her "detuobt." the Count

retouched, but finished at once from the

photographed by the London artists, and
(,000 of her cabinets hae been sold within
the past year.
So thoroughly does she disguise tho wom
an's form in the boy's costume that it
was said of her in London that it was im
possible she could play a woman's part,
her figure beingso masculine. However, wo
who haveseeu her in full dress know bet
ter than that. She is an animated conver
bationalist, and has such pretty tricks of
smiling uud dimpling that it is an absolute
pleasure to watch her as she talks.
In "Paul .lonos" she wears in tho first

Miss Huntingdon is proud of the fact
that she sang 84 nights in Iondon with
out a break a feat no other American
Bingcr has ever accomplished.
Socially the singer was as great a success
as artistically. She was a great pet of the
Baroness Burdett-Coutts and of Lady
Westminster The Princess of Wales, too,
was greatly interested in her, and one of
Miss Huntingdon's jswels is a butterfly of
sapphires and diamonds given her by her
She possesses many beautiful ornaments,
among which none is more effective than
n quaint old f&shioaed set of amethysts
and pearls. The amethysts are a deep vio
let hue and pear shaped, almost as large
as the end of one's little finger. There is a
necklace and pendant, bracelet and but
terfly for the hair. These gems were an
i '..'; ht. wnv fir

heirloom to the lady who presented them
to the singer. M' Huntingdon wears
them with a white satin gown, and the
effect is very fine.
The lady's pet superstition is over the
number "3." She has signed and begun
so many successful engagements, and
has had otherwise good luck on that
date, that she has come to regard
the number as her mascot Tery many
of her jewels are made in the form
of the figure "3," and she has numerous
rings three in number joined together in
one. Detto, her dog, wears three golden
balls dangling from his colla She gailed
for America on the third of the month, and
was wild with delight when she found her
napkin nng op shipboard numbered "3."
On the street Miss Huntingdon is a very
quiet dresser, in no way advertising by her
gowns that 6he is a professional. She is
fond of tulor made tweed gowns, and es
pecially favors dark blue broadcloth cos
tumes. Her evening gowns are superb
and are usually of white or black. In the
accompanying portrait she wears a black
satin, with a white fur boa carelessly dis
posed about her whiter shoulders. So
stately is sho in this costume that when
she first donned it she was given by her in
timate friends the sou briquet of "Queenie,"
which pet name has clung to her ever since.
Miss Huntingdon speaks very modestly
of her success in London, and fervently
hopes that Americans will like her as well
as her English fi lends. She told me that
she was having a theatre built in London
which is to have many American features,
though of course retaining the pit, as she
laughingly said one could not fancy a Lon
don theatre without a pit.
"In London," sho said, "at the variety
theatres especially, and even at many of
the others, it is very customary for the au
dience to call out to tho actors, encourag
ing them and calling them by name. Be
tween acts some of my hearers have called
'Good girll' 'Well done, Paull' and similar
words of approval. They never quite went
bo far as to call me 'Agnes,' however, as
they sometimes do with other profession
als. "I was one day going toa reception given
Mr. Stanley, and the crow d recognizing me,
shouted, 'Here comes Paul Jones!' and be
sought me not to go away and wished me
good luck, and so on, all of which was
naturally very embarrassing."
As a bright, successful American girl
and an accomplished artist. Miss Hunting
don will doubtless receive a warm welcome
from her countrymen.

The Victory of Slarln.
The Slavin-McAuliffe fight proved the
greatest surprise of the year in pugilistic
circles. Every one seemed so confident
that the "Mission Boy" would win that
his defeat in less than seven minutes, and
before tho conclusion of tho second round,
was a thunderbolt even to his enemies.
McAuliffe and his backers wore so confi
dent that they put up a barrel of money
and conceded almost every disputed point
rather than allow tho match to fall through,
and then well, "the Mission Boy" hardly
seemed to bo "in it" after the first round.
Tho only men now in the arena left to
claim Slavin's attention are Sullivan and
Jackson. As McAuliffe gave Jackson a
hard fight, Slavin's recent victory is proof
positive that he is the colored pugilist's
equal, and that in all probability he would
give the great Sullivan an interesting
battle. Slavm is only 27 years of ago. He
was born at Maitland, N. S. V., and be
came successively a blacksmith, a gold
digger and an all round athlete. At an
early age ha fought his first battle, and
one after another the best men in Aus
tralia, Peter Jackson excepted, succumbed
to his prowess. In December, 18S9, ho
fought Jem Smith to a draw, but on ac
count of Smith's unfair tactics the Pelican
club declared Slavin champion of Eng
land, which title he still holds.

Scene Before the "Ways and Cleans."
WASHIXGTOX, Sept 29. We are at the
ud of a long session of congress, and for
several months the dwellers in the Capital
"ity will miss a pretty dally picture the
mfurliug of the flags over the two houses
of congress. To my eyes the raising of the
flags upon the national state house is an
inspiring spectacle. At noon precisely if
you chance to be looking at the great
building on tho hill the building which
ItUXXIXO UP THE VLAGS.
overshadows all the city you will see two
flags creeping up two staffs. They run up
together as if they were moved by the same
hand, though one is on the house wing of
the Capitol and the other on tho senate
wing. Ever since the organization of con
gross it has been tho custom to unfurl a
flag over the building in which house or
senate meets, and to lower it when the
body adjourns. This is not only a prettily
patriotic custom, but one of convenience,
for in Washington one may see tho flag
staffs from all parts of the city and sur
rounding hills and thus learn at a glance
whether or not congress is in session.
Looked at from a distance or from the
noble avenue which traverses the city and
runs directly to the center of the great ro
tunda, the flags appear to be almost sido
by side. This is one of tho optical illusions
of this city of magnificent distances and
entrancing views, for the distance between
the two flagstaffs is 060 feet, or exactly an
eighth of a mile. The vastness of the Cap
itol is impressed upon us in another way.
As we look at the flags from Pennsylvania
avenue wo wonder why they are ho small,
why larger, more conspicuous flags are not
used; but if we take the trouble to climb
to the top of the house or senate wing we
shall find that the flags are of tho largest
size manufactured. They measure more
than twenty feet in length. The flagstaff,
too, which from the avenue below nppeared
so short and slender, we here discover to
be almost as large as the mast of a schoon
er. It is not surprising we were deceived,
however. The hill on which tho Capitol
stands rises eighty feet abo e the general
level of the city, and the roof of tho great
building is nearly a hundred feet higher.
It is 12 o'clock, lacking a few minutes.
In tho hall of the house of representatives
200 members are gathered. The clerks are
at their posts, the sergeant-at-arms stinds
at tho right of the chair and near by waits
"RISIXO GUN" MORSE AXD HIS LOXG COAT,
the blind chaplain, a page holding his
hand and prepared to lead him to the plat
form. In his private room not far away
the speaker is sitting at a flat table rapidly
affixing his signature to bills and resolu
tions as they aro presented by his clerk.
He glances occasionally at the big clock on
the mantel, and within thirty seconds of
noon rises and walks rapidly into the hall.
As he ascends tho steps to his placo mem
bers cease conversation nnd the blind chap
lain is led forward. Without sitting down
the speaker seizes his gavel, raps once in a
determined sort of way, exclaims "The
house will bo in order," and tho dally ses
sion has begun.
At this very instant two men on tho roof
overhead are tugging at tho lines, pulling
the big flag to the top of the staff. When
the speaker's gavel touched the pounding
board the sergeant-at-arms had pressed an
electric button, a bell had tinkled away up
there on the roof, and the signal was given
for the unfurling of tho flag. Far away to
the north, across the acres of glass and
gravel rpof, and barely visible past the
wall of the great dome, which here appears
vaster than from any other point of view,
another flag may bo seen creeping upward.
In a second or two both banners aro flout
ing in tho cool autumn breeze, and the
congress of tho United States is by these
starry tokens known to be in session.
But tho man in charge of the flag must
not leave his post He may, indeed, retire
to shelter just under the roof, where he
has a cozy little nook, with heating stove,
cat, pipe and novel. But be must go no
farther away. Away up here, seemingly
out of tho world, ho must stay till, many
hours later, tho electric bell Btrikes twice.
Then he rushes out, lowers his bunting,
rolls and packs it away, and slowly descends
the narrow stairs to mingle with the world
I often reflect, in looking at this hnge
building, with its flags flying as signs of
the activity within, what a world of hu
man nature, of human hope, ambition, en
ergy, struggle and disappointment It con
tains. Were it possible for me to search it
all out, understand, analyze and describe
it all, what a cyclopedia of national poll
tics, national characteristics, national ac
tivities we thould have. A study of the
Capitol as a human hive wonld no doubc
be intereeting, but, as a rule, generalities
aro unsatisfactory. Th-a practical, mate
rial world wants particulars. You wntc

customer wants actualities and personali

gates will gaze for an hour upon Tom
Reed in the chair, and spare but sixty sec
onds for a survey of the statue of Wash
ington or Jefferson or Lincoln- The quaint
garb worn by the marblo Roger Williams
is of small interest to him compared with
the coat worn by the Hon. Elijah Morse, of
Massachusetts. Mr. Morse's coat is indeed
one of the marvels of the times. It is the
longest and heaviest coat in congress. It
is a coat with character in its cut, and the
character is an admirable one, with faith,
resignation and piety predominating in it.
All through the hot weather, while other
statesmen were sweltering in linens and
flannels and all sorts of neglige costumes,
Mr. Morse adhered to his long, heavy coat
Mr. Morse's coat has become famous,
but not so famous as Mr. Reed's sash. The
national bunting floating from the flag
staff, the mantlo which hangs so grace
fully upon the form of tho Goddess of Lib
erty, are objects of small contemporaneous
interest compared with the sash which
Mr. Reed wore in the speaker's chair.
That broad blue belt has been more talked
and written about throughout the length
and breadth of the land than any other
feature of the congressional session now
at an end. Could anything better illus

stringy portion. But if Mr. Houk wishes
to enjoy the luxury of walking on woolen,
and the felicity of the fame won thereby,
what business is it of ours?
To be just to Mr. Houk, however, who is
as amiable as he is eloquent, it should be
added here that he is the only man in con
gress who goes to sublime extremes in his
attire. One day you will see Mr. Houk as
the congressional slouch, in a spotted and
greasy, ill fitting suit of clothes, dotted
and streaked with tobacco juice and cigar
ashes, and with the bottom of his trousers
under the heels of his coarse rawhide boots.
The very next day, perhaps, you will see
Mr. Houk the dandy, attired in an elegant
suit made by a fashionable tailor, with
neckwear of the neatest, patent leather
shoes, and trousers fair and fitting to look
upon. The Houk of yesterday and the

There is the case of Mr. Springer, of Illi
nois. Probably there is no abler, no more
alert or admirable member of the house.
As a leader, a parliamentarian and debater
he ranks with the best men in public life.
Yet Mr. Springer's most famous character
istic is a pink bouttoniere! For fifteen
years Mr. Springer has sat in congress
sat and stood together, for no man is
more often on his feet than he and in all
that timo he has never been seen without
a pink bud in his buttonhole. "Mr.
Springer," said I one day, "pardon the
personality, but why do you always wear
a pink or red bud?" "That is Mrs. Spring
er's notion," ho replied; "she is passion
ately fond of flowers. Sho thinks a flower
the emblem of purity and of soul, and al
ways says when she sees a man leaving his
homo to go to his work with a bit of
flower on his coat that he goes with a lit
tle of the soul of home alonu with him, to
guide and keep him. A pretty thought, is
It not? So when I firrit came to congress
ah, we were younger then sho said I must
wear every day something to remind rae of
her and of homo, and so she selected her
favorite carnation. Never but once in fif
teen years have I left the house without
one, and then I sneaked out just for a joke,
putting Mrs Springer to the expense of
"I SHALL BE BUWED."
calling a messenger boy and sending him
poste haste after ma tvith a pink bud in
his hand and a command to wear It, which
I did not dare disobey."
If the domestic life of the Springers is a
result of the wearing of pretty pink buds
it is a pity all the men in creation cannot
bavo their lapels thus adorned. Tho fad
of this sweet Christian wife and mother h&s
helped her husband to much fame among
tho men who note and talk of the little
things of life, but it has also helped him to
much home happiness.
But the flag has been lowered again, asd
the long ee&iion has como to an end. The
statesmen are dtsMding the hill, come of
them never to return. As they go by one
by one and I sit looking at them my
thought is that I could write a book about
their peculiarities, their fad. their ro
mances and struRcles and the little things
which have been big things m their lives.

ORDER OF THE EASTERN STAR.
Women Kelatlvej of Masons, and tba
Organization lUiey Have formed.
Under Masonic law women cannot par
ticipate in any of the rites and ceremonies
of Masons. A lodge to which female rehv
jives of Masons are eligible has, however,
been formed the Order of the Eastern
Star ita distinctive title.
This order has for its watchword, "Let
woman ever prove herself woman's truest
friend." Ita badge is the pentagonal star.
No one can become a member of the order
unless she is a mother, daughter, sister or
wife of a Mason. In New York city alone
the membership is 1,248. Mrs. Eliza Dem
erest is the grand matron and Mrs. Chris
tiana Butterick secretary. The names
chosen for the different chapters are most
attractive; for instance, Queen Esther,
Minerva, Crescent, Orient, Rosary, Morn
ing Star, Miriam and Laurel.
Of thedatter chapter Mrs. Abbie Hays is
tho worthy matron and Elizabeth J.
Warner secretary. At the installation of
officers of this chapter an especially inter
esting port ofthe ceremonies is that of in
vesting what ik called the "Floral Center" of
the chapter with the badges of their office.
Five sisters represent the five rays of the
eastern star. Adah, as the first sister is
designated, illustrates the binding force of
a vow. The color and badge given to her
are blue. Ruth symbolizes devotion to re
ligious principles, and is typified by a
golden yellow badge.
The third ray of the star is represented
by Esther, distinguished for her fidelity to
kindred and friends, whose purity Is fitly
shown by snowy white. Martha typifies
nndevlating faith in tho hour of trial; her
colors axe green. Electa, whose color is
red, symbolizes patience and submission
under wrong. A Ave rayed floral star
hows these colors with which the dro sis
ters have been invested.
To the warder of the order is presented a
badge, a door within a star, "an emblem
of peace, and an admonition that unity i
and harmony are essential to the welfare
of the order."
The prime object of the Order of the
Eastern Star is "to dispense to our sisters
advice in their troubles, sympathy in
their sorrows, aid in their misfortunes."
Worthy matrons are admonished never to
close a chapter without asking, "Are any pt
our members sick and in need of sympathy
An effort is always made to cultivate the
social element, to make the meetings home
like, for the sake of those who are not
blessed with homes, and who are perhaps
far from mother, sister or friends, but who
know that in the chapter they will meet
with a cordial welcome from their adopted
sisters, and who on that account will feel
encouraged to withstand temptation.
The sisters are content to move in wom
an's true sphere, shedding light in dark
ened hearts, comforting the sorrowing,
nursing tho sick and relieving tho dis
tressed. Among the grand matrons of this:
order are Airs. Augusta Ladd, New Jer
sey; Mrs. Fanning, Indiana; Mrs. Qris
