In the schools there has been a great increase
in the interest in the contest and tho bright boys

for their favorite candidates. In many cases they
have adopted the scheme of holding back tho
votes for their favorite, so as to send them all in

While this is legitimate, it would increase the

Says tho Parte Figaro; "Young Paris mash
ers now wear colored 6hirts pink, blue, or
red when thoy aro asked out in tho evening.
Thoso loud colors, which aro displayed to full
advantage under tho deoply cut-out waistcoats,
produce phenomenal effects. To heighten tho
contrast thoy aro fastened with largo jet 6tuds.
These shirts aro already so much in voguo that
thoy cannot bo made fast enough. The young

How u "Well-Known Society Lady Prepares
It for Her Tultlc.
"There are as many ways of making this
toothsome dainty as there aro varieties of
womankind," said a lady recognized as a leader
in official circles to a Heiialt) reporter. "I
rather prido myself on my strawberry shortcake
as a superior article. Tho sweetened cake in
two layers so often seen here on private tables
with its even layer of uncrushed berries spread
between and powdered sugar sifted on top has
no resemblance to the real article. I do not
mind telling you how I make shortcake myself.
I have not placed it before my family but a few
times this season. I consider it too rich for
daily use; besides tho plain strawberry is good
enough for ordinary uses and occasions. But
now for my receipt. It has a history. I learned
jt when a girl from tho Oneida Shaker commu
nity in Now York State. They made and still
make a specialty of raising and preparing small
fruits for the market, and during tho season
when I was a girl thoy treated visitors to this
most delicious of shortcakes, afterward selling
tho receipt, with characteristic thrift, forenough
to pay for the treat. Well, my mother bought
one, and I was duly instructed in the theory of
a first-class strawberry cake. I havo never seen
anything to equal it in my opinion siuce, so I
continue to use it. Tho first thing I do Is to in
struct my cook to havo a good flro and a hot
oven. Shortcake cannot bo made good by any
possible process in a 'slow' oven. Then I toll
her to make a biscuit dough only a triilo richer
than usual. I uso a tablespoouful of lard, with
one of sweet butter, well mixed in by
hand, and I alwaj'6 prefer tho best quality
of baking powder, for it is less liublo to acci
dents in tho hands of a cook than cream of tar
tar and soda. Tho dough prepared, I havo it
rolled about a third of au inch thick and put in
enough to cover tho bottom ot a large turkey
pan. It must bo baked, as I said before, in
a quick oven. When done let it cool a few mo
ments before spreading with tho berries. The
berries must not bo too large, too ripe, or too
firm, but just right. You see Jt requires some
judgment, oven if ono has a receipt, as all good
j housekeeping does. I havo my berries gently
crushed with a wooden spoon in au earthen bowl.
I I uso two quarts of tho prepared berries. 1
! sweeten with a coffee-cupful of powdered sugar.
; My cako is cut into four squaro pieces, is care-
luuy spat, anu piaceu on a saiver largo euougli
to leave a generous margin around it. Tho split
halves aro lightly buttered, not too heavily, el6o
you will tasto butter Instead of thedelicato flavor
of tho berries. I spread tho berries clear to the
edges of tho cako and allow them to ovcrilow
into tho dish. On top I sprinkle powdered sugar
lightly. It mu6t not be put into tho oven, even
for a minute, else tho strawberries loso their
freshness aud delicacy. It must bo prepared
while dinner is beiug served, in order to bo per
fectly fresh aud warm when brought to tho table
on one's prettiest china or clearest of cut-glass
berry plates, with a small silver fork and a gold
lined spoon. Then when eaten with puro Alder
ney cream, my word for it, nothing is hotter iu
all tho world of cookery than that kind of a
strawberry shortcake, unless it be the berry as
nature made it, undivested of its cap even, and
dipped one by one daintily into a dish of pow
dered sugar and eaten from the stem. I hardly
know which way I prefer mine, only I do know
that I prefer my receipt for tho cake to other
peoples', and I also prefer to eat my strawber
ries in May or Juno rather than January. The
fresher they are from the vino the better they aro
for ail purposes."
A SUCCESSFUL: SEASON.
The One Jiiht Cloned One of tlio Best In the
History of tlio National Tbciitro.
With last night's performance at tho Na
tional Theatre the regular season closed. Tlio
coming two weeks will bo given up to college
commencements, and more iiowers will bo
handed over the footlights and piled on the
stage than during all tho other fifty weeks of
tlio year. The commencement season over, it
is probable Manager Kaplcy may give his pa
trons a short engagement of summer opera.
Ho has been in negotiation with ono of the
strongest organizations now on tho road, and if
favorable arrangements can bo made some ex
cellent performances may bo expected. Later
tho house will ho closed for a while, and tho
usual annual cleaning up, retouching of deco
rations, and needed repairs will he effected in
anticipation of tho now theatrical year.
"Tho season that has just closed," said Man
ager Harry Rapley last night, "has been ono of
tho most prosperous financially and most satis
factory otherwise tho houso has ever known.
We succeeded in securing a steady run of at
tractions of almost uniform cxcelleuco, and
naturally wo were rewarded with a correspond
ingly excellent patronago throughout tho sea
son. I don't think there was a theatro in any
city in tho country that did a better averago
business than tho National tho past season."
"What aro tho prospects for next season?"

of attractions than we had this season. Our
dates aro filled with standard attractions and

Notes and Comments.
The special feature of tho business on tho
Exchange during the week just past has been
the strong tone and high prico of Gas stock
and the "listing" of tho now Lincoln Fire In
surance Company's stock with tho activity
developed at the start, tlio first day's sales rep-.
resenting two hundred shares ntfij and four
hundred at &, followed on the next day by
sales of two hundred moro at 5j aud twenty
five at 5?, and a strong continuing bid of 55 for
more, with none in sight at that figure. Tho
premium paid for this stock was somewhat
surprising, and it speaks well for the coufldenco
tho public havo in the company and their belief
in its future success and prosperity.
Gas stock has been dormant so long that a
salo is somewhat in tho nature of a surprise to
the board, but tho special feature of the salo
this week was the high prico paid for it, tho
highest it has reached for a number of years.
It was offered as a whole, aud readily secured
-101 for the lot of 132 shares, whilo on yesterday
10J was hid, with no offerings under 4S. It is
rumored that there is something good in storo
for holders, and the opinion is generally held
that the prico will touch $30, a condition which
has not existed for moro than ten years. At
that figure, on the basis of present dividends,
it is a net 4 per cent, investment, and Is gen
erally considered as absolutely safe.
Bank stocks continued in good demand, and
sales were limited only by the small amounts of
fering. For threo Metropolitan 205 was paid,
while two Columbia brought 1S21. Threo Sec
ond National at 195 represented the highest
price yet paid for this stock. Ton West End
were taken at 105 J,and five Lincoln at SS. Threo
Traders' sold at 105, and an order for ten shares
was filled at 100.
Electric Light showed continued strength,
four lots of ten shares each readily bringing
130, and five shares reaching 133, though offer
ings of larger amounts were made at a lesser
price without being taken.
Telephone and Graphophonc were both weak,
the only transaction in tho former beiug ono
salo of twenty shares at 731. The amount of
I Gravmonhonc changinE hands was much larger,
tho total 6ales representing 575 shares at 13 J13,
closiugweak at the latter figure. During the
past fortnight over fourteen hundred shares
havo been marketed, without changing tho
price moro than 25 cents, and tho question per
tinently asked, Where does it all come from ? is
one of those tilings that seems impossible to
An unusual amount of activity in Pneumatic
Gun Carriage and a good amount of buying
held the price firmly at H, at which eleven hun
dred shares were readily sold. The belief in
better things for this stock is a growing one,
and it is possible that a small investment now
may bring a good return.
For forty-five shares American Security and
Trust 50 was paid, and for twenty Georgetown
and Tennailytowii Railroad 52 was considered a
fair price to pay. In both cases this is an ad
vance over previous quotations.
Bonds were without special noto, except one
sale of S50O Washington and Georgetown Rail
road convertible at 225, an advance of 12.50 over
last previous sale. For $1,000 Electric Light
second mortgage O's 130 was paid, and $1,000
D. C. 0's of 1891 brought 104. These, with ono
small salo of $200 Gas bonds at 122, repre
sented all the transactions in that class of se
curities. The money market showed some stringency,
due to the fact that tlio semi-annual payment
of taxes occurred and a largo amount of money
was drawn from tho banks for that purpose.
Now that tho time is past it is probable that an
easy money markot may he expected until fall.
Notes mill Comments.
Tho banl: statements called for by the Comp
troller and recently published show a gratifying
condition of affairs, and that our flnaucial in

February 28. Tho loans and discounts ag
gregated $8,010,427.52, an increase of $1,105,-56-1.50
for the same time. This mcreaso in de
posits is especially good when it Is recalled that
tho month was moro than half gone and much
had been drawn out to pay taxes. Tlio figures
in detail generally make a good showing, and
tho holders of stock havo good cause to feel
satisfied with their investments.
Railroad stocks havo been without special

stated, is to ho continued semi-annually, and

prices recently paid for tho stock $75 to $75
tho dividend represents 1.83 per cout. per au

to 90. Evidently railroad stocks aro considered
valuable things to hold, as they pay less than
