Actor and Athlete.
From tho N. Y. World.
Barrymore is the only one of the distinctively
handsome actors on the Now York stage who is
more popular with men than with women. Ills
magnificent physical proportions aud his fame
as a wrestler, boxer, and athleto havo spread
pretty much over tho world. Ho onco held the
heavy-weight championship at Oxford, and In
the many rows into which his Impetuous nature
has led him in this country ho has como oil
victorious without exception. He does not
look it, but ho is in tho early forties, aud his
hair has thinned out wofully ou tho top of his
head. On tho stage ho wears a toupee, aud it is
so artfully put on that It is impossible to detect
tho line whero tho real hair stops and the arti
ficial thatch begins. Mr. Barrymoro commonly
retires at 5 in tho morning and arises at 10. He
considers five hours' sleep ample for a man, aud
he has for years maintained a perfect degree of
health on tho allowance.
I How Songs IJcoome Popular Airs.
1 From tho N. Y. Stnr.
! Simply tho melody of a catch nursery rhyme,
with a song appended, usually Is taken up
I quickly by tho popular car. This wns tho caso
with "Rock a-byc, Baby," which was wiltton by
Mrs. Canning, ot Boston. "The Letter that
Never Came," by Paul Dresser, wns published
in Chicago in 1887, nnd was first introduced by
j Miss May Hownrd, who, in fact, ilrst sprang
Into popularity by singing it. She Is fortunnto
enough to share tho profits of tlio song with hor
I nuthor, aud her commission on it sometimes
' reaches from $200 to $300 a month.
I VJWhlto Wings" was written and set to music
by Banks Winter, and was introduced by
Thatcher, Primrose it West's Minstrel Company
I In 1782. It was an Immediate success.
A song which has not yet lost its place in
nubile favor, and which will nrobablv nlwnvs
rank among the prettiest of Scotch ballads, Is
"Anuio Laurie." A young man named Wal
laco wroto it on his deathbed and dedicated it
to tho girl of that name, whom cruel parents
had prevented from marrying him. Annlo
Laurlo was born in 1S27, nnd wns nbout seven
teen years old when tho incident occurred.
Wallace was ono of her father's farm laborers,
nnd was discharged when It was found that ho
was In lovo with Annie. Ho went homo and
was taken ill tho night of his arrlvnl. When
sho heard of his Illness Annio Laurio went to
his bedside nnd wnited on him till he died.
It wns Billy Rice, the fnmous minstrel, who
first sang "Listen to My Tale of Woo," which
was mado so popular in Francis Wilson's
"Oolah." It was written by Eugeno Field sev
eral years ago, aud was first published in tho
"Down Went McGIuty" mado a hit at Tony
Pastor's about a year ago, when a variety per
former, iu doing his "turn," sang It. Tho song
wns evolved from tho teeming brain of a young
Irish Boheminu named Joo Flynn. Ho wroto it
iu April, 1888, but did not think enough of it nt
tho timo to put it on tho market. Of its origin
Mr. Flynn says: "If you ever heard tho story of
tho Irishman who was carried In a hod to tho
top of a seven-story building by a friend as the
result of a bet that the feat could not bo accom
plished, nnd who remarked on paying over tho
money, 'Well, Pat, you've won fairly, but when
your feet slipped at tho sixth story, be jabers. I
had hopes,' you will know what suggested tho
first verse of tho song. If you havo ever heard
tho air of the old song about tho man who had a
wooden leg and who hnd 'no tobnecy In his old
tobaccy box' you can guess where tho sugges
tion for tho tuno came from."
Mr. Nolnn, nu English-born Irishman, is the
author of "Annio Rooney." It was never copy
righted, and every publisher put it on sale. It
would havo been worth $100,000 to any ouo pub
lisher who could havo bought it outright.
Flowers at Funerals.
From London Truth.
At the funeral of an Infant or a youug
maiden on tho bier of an Ophelia, for ex
ample a profusiou of flowers may have a cer
tain poetic fitness. But nothing, to my mind,
can bo more grotesquely out of placo tban.a pile
of snow-white garlands and floral crosses upon
tho coffin of some battered old sinner, for
whom in life both flowers and crosses had
equally little meaning or attraction. In truth,
as everybody knows, tho floral displays which
now give such a May-Day character to our
hearses, aro signs not of respect for tho de
parted, but of tho purchasing power of tho
living. For the most part, they are cither mere
empty compliments or expressions of ostenta
tious snobbery, and they deserve no more tolera
tion than tho hired plumes and scarves by
which the "mourners" of tho last generation
indicated their feelings.
Tho Use of Perfumes.
From tho N. Y. Tribune.
No truly elegant nnd refined woman over
mnkes use of violent perfumes. It is not by a
mere change of fnshlon thnt scents are so much
less employed of lato than they were some years
ngo. Many doctors assert that tho powerful
essences with which women saturate' their
clothes and handkerchiefs aro often the direct
causo of headaches and nervous disorders of all
kinds. Good tosto alone should prevent ladles
from using anything but tho most delicate and
evanescent of extracts; everything about n
young and pretty woman ought to bo awoet
smolling, but not to tho degree of making this
sweetness offonsivo to her entourage. To at
tain this aim nil the drawers and cupboards,
chiffoniers, nnd clothes-presses In a woman's
dressing-room should bo lined with largo flat
sachets filled with a mixture of orris-root, violet
amber, and pcau d'Espagnc powder. These
particular odors agrco well aud blend together
with a result which, without being strong, is
both enduring and extremely agreeable.
Furthermore, tho linen when returned from tho
laundry should bo sprinkled lightly with laven
der nnd verbena water, a process which removes
tho odor of 6tnrch nnd soap lingering in Its doll
Parting the Hair hi the Middle.
From tho N. Y. World.
Tho forcmnn of one of the largest bnrber
shops in New York is nuthority for the state
ment that tho number of men who part their
hair in tho middle Is Increasing every day. The
fashion has grown, according to this expert In
the matter of dressing hair, so rapidly that It
would not bo out of tho way to say that fully
one-half tho men who formerly derided this
once much-condemned fashion aro gradually
getting around to it. "They begin," said the
barber yesterday, "by parting the hair a llttlo
higher up on the head by degrees until they
finally get it exactly in the centre. I remember
very well when It was a very rare thing for a
man to part his hair directly over tho nose, but
all of the contempt and fun which such a pro
ceeding evoked aro now replaced by indifference
as far as tho public is concerned. Twenty years
ago a politician who parted his hair iu tho mid
dle courted disaster at tho polls. Now no end
of statesmen, promtnentor otherwise, wear their
hair in a dandified fashion, and it does not oven
call forth a remark. Tho only thing that tho
rank and file strenuously and positively object
to is a masjculino bang. Thoy won't havo that
nt any price."
The Dawn Far Off in Russia.
From tho Fortnightly Review.
Tho genuine Russian gentleman and tho ideal
Russian lady both exist, nnd aro to be found
among sectarinu peasants as well as iu ex
clusive salons of St. Petersburgh aro among tho
noblest specimens of civilized humanity; the
refreshing unconventlonallty of thought aud
expression, tho graceful simplicity of manner,
the wonderful delicacy of feeling, the gener
ous aspirations and noblo yearnings might,
if thoy grow to be tho characteristics of "tho
nation, effect great things. But Is there any
serious hope of this? Let tho Archbishop of
Kherson and Odessa reply, who himself sprung
from tho people, has spent a lone life in their
midst working for their weal, like a solitary
swallow hopelessly coming to make spring be
fore the sap stirs within tho trees, tho frail
blossoms are hung out on tho branches, or even
tho snowdrop has looked up at tho sun. "On
tho whole," lie said last year, on a very solemn
occasion, "tho state of things in Russia is sad.
Tho peoplo'6 mluds aro wofully dark, and
there is no sign of tho coming dawn." Nor is
it likely that day will break for many genera
tions yet to come.
It's just at the time of year when importers are off for Europe to make spring purchases, and manufacturers are clearing up the "ends'
preparatory to spring manufacturing. That the right man in the right place can pick up bargains, our outlet is so great that we are always
in the market for the "Plums," and this week we secured some that will constitute the greatest Millinery sale of the age. Read the following
items and see what we cleaned up. It really is wonderful :
Birds and Fancy Feathers.
Wo struck It rich with the importeis In this line. There aro about 875 Fauey
Feathers that would hnvo sold regularly from $1.50 to $2.50 apleco you enn hnvo
your cholco to-morrow for 79c. They aro tho finest Imported fancies and posi
tively worth what wo say.
In Birds Lot No. 1 10c. each contains Birds of all kinds and colors. Wo
.couldn't think of selling them for double tho money had wo bought them regu
larly. But wo didn't. You'll find 19c. a merely nominal price.
Lot No. 2 aro flno Colored nud Black Birds at 40c. A weok ago you would
havo paid 75c, $1, and $1.25 for tho same birds. Wo told'you why wo sell them.
Vou can apprecinto it.
350 Dozen Felt Hats.
The very same goods that wo sold at 09c. apiece, at
Mind you, tho same goods thoy como from thosamofaetory. Thoy aro "THE
SAME." Wo bought them cheap, nnd you shnll hnvo tho benefit. Thoy aro nil
colors and all shapes. All our manufacturer had. Ho wanted to closo. Wo
closed. Thoro you have tho whole story. It's a big lot. But oven big lots of
09c. that sell out quick at 393. Bettor bo ono of tho first hero to-morrow morn
ing. Wo have n small lot of NELLIE BLY GAPS. Just a fow. We'll close
them at 25c. and 98c. Thoy sold from 50c. to $1.50. Tnoy aro very cheap.
You know that lot of fine Gros Grains wo had ? Tho regular price of them
was 50c. a yard. Did you seo them ? Wo sold them at 25c. Wo had 850 pieces
of them when wo started; about 500 pieces havo been sold that's Osgood many
about 5,000 yards. Tho balnuce, 350 pieces, go on salo to-morrow at 19c. a yard.
Quito a low prico for Ribbons worth 50c., isn't It? but thoro aro more things com
ing, aud wo can't havo goods stay long ou our shelves. Wo sell them quick. . It
won't tako long to movo them at 10c.
There's another lot of Ribbons here thnt demand your attention. Thoy aro
lino Imported Plaids with wido Satin Stripe. Tho prico that goes on to-morrow
Nover mind tho value; it's nearly twice tho prico wo quote. Como HERE
nnd seo If it isn't. WE'LL SOON CONVINCE you that wo are THE Ribbon
houso of Washington.
Did any ono over tell you that wo have as large a stock of Velvets as there Is In tho city, and thnt our price is
from 10 to 15 per cent, lower than you cau buy them nnywhero ? If thoy did you can believe it It is true
Wo aro a Millinery House. But wo soil lots and lots of Velvets for dress trimmings, for tho simple reason
that wo 6oll them a groat deal lower thnn DRY GOODS STORES. Wo mention no prices; thoy don'tsignify nny
thlngi quality must bo considered. Seo tho goods, note how they are marked, and tell us if wo aro not right.
Ostrich Tips, Etc.
Ostrich Tips, etc., como in with tho balanco, Hero, too, aro special values, such as you havo nover seen.
Fnucy Pon Pons, Ostrich Baudeaux, besides Tips and Plumes. That's what the manufacturers want to get rid of
and that's just what you waut. Tho prices aro woudorful, It is woudorful to note tho oxtromo low figures fancy
goods will como to. You know thoso Bird Crowns wo had early in tho season. Wo woro about thoouly houso
hero that hnd them. Our prico was then $3.50 apiece. The importer said the fifty ho had loft must go. Wo
bought them to soil at $1.75. That will inako them Interesting, and THEY ARE THE MOST STYLISH CROWNS
OUT THIS SEASON.
