The moving spirits in Almas Temple have
originated many pleasant little incidents in tho
history of tho organization, but ihe climax was
readied In the handsome presentation mode
last Saturday evening to that prince of Poten

his noble friends was manifested in his responso,

MAKING POOR OIXILiDIlKN HAPPY.
Tho Good Work of tho Children's Christ
Six hundred and sixty-five children partook
of tho dinner prepared for them in National
Rifles' Armory on Saturday, at 2 o'clock. Tho
police had distributed tho dinner tickets. Sotno
of tho little ones came from very wretched
homes, where fuel was ccant, food of tho poor
est 6ort, and tho clothing too thin to keep out
tho cold. Tho most of the children, however,
attend public schools, and there will probably
bo in tho future a largo number of good and
useful men and women who once belonged to
this Christmas Club. Tho six hundred nnd odd
children came In, two by two, from tho room
above, and Hied around six long tables set with
plates for one hundred at each. On each plato
was a block of striped ice cream,
two good sized "cookies," au apple with a rosy
chock, a banana, an orange, and a glass o'f
water. Mi6S Jenny Fuller, president of tho
Children's Club for tho year, assisted by Miss
Jessio Miller, both in white mob caps, helped to
wait on the little ones with their corps of assist
ant boy and girl waiters. Theso were tho fol
lowing : Boys Frank Houston, Frank E. Gib
son, Moxley Blumenberry, Harry C. Adams,
Howard E. Wilson, Joseph G. Tyssowski, and
Howard Burbank. Girls Maggie McMahon, Ma
bella Jirdinston, llattio Hamilton, Bcsslo
Gacgcr, Clara Williams, Lucille Colby, Sarah
Avery, Anna Hughes, Mary Betehlcr, Con
stance Weir, Lena Stokes, Blanch Hodges,
Eloiso Keller, Mollle Lo, Estellc Campbell,
Ada Duke, Fanny Buryt, and Mary Shinn.
Tho ladles in charge of the tables, as chair
men of committees, were Mrs. Charles Gibson,
Mrs. Charles Adee, Mi68 Thomas, Miss Elliott,
Mrs. McCarthy, Mrs. Surgeon General Browne,
Mrs. Totten, and Mrs. Dulen. The ladles in
charge of toys and amusements were Mrs. Mac
farland, Miss McCalmont, Mrs. Allen, and
others. The Marine Band furnished tho music,
which delighted tho youngsters, who sang aud
shouted at tho strains of "Annio Rooney."
Returning to tho hall after dinner "Punch and
Judy" wero delightfully funny, and Kato Field
sang a Spanish muleteer song to tho accom
paniment of tho castanets. Then
came a pause, the band struck up a
lively tune, and Santa Claus marched in
loaded up to the chin with his pack of
prescuts, and he made a neat little speed),
describing his journey through the snow,
and ended by asking all present to write to him
next year. Ono enterprising youth shouted out:
"Where to?" Tho response to the vote for
another Christmas greeting next year was a
tremendous majority. Scaton Pern personated
the jolly old St. Nicholas and helped distribute
presents to the happy ticket-holders and the
left-over fragments to tho odd members with
out tickets. It was a delightful occasion,
most excellently managed by tho executive
committee Miss Strong, Miss Helntzelman,

WOMEN AT THE CHICAGO FAIR.
Mrs. Ilolvn Iiockwooil's Ideas Given to tho
Woman's Press Association.
The Woman's National Press Association
held its regular meeting on Friday evening in
tho parlors of Willard's notel. Mrs. Belva A.
Lockwood gave a brief recital of what sho had
learned during her recent visit to Chicago rela
tive to exhibits to bo made by women at the
approaching World's Fair. Tbo'qucstlou as to
the proper disposition of articles exhibited by
women is one of groat interest, and Mrs. Lock
wood had expressed it as her opinion that all
such articles should bo placed in tho samo
buildings with those containing articles ex
hibited by men, that their relative merits should
thus bo brought into fair competition, and in so
declaring sho is believed to voice tho views of
women " generally. However, Mrs. Palmer,
president of tho board of lady managers, has
applied for a separate building to be used for
tho exhibition of objects of rare value, such as
laces, jewels, etc., in order that they may ho
Mrs. Sheldon showed to thoso present tho

sent with a resolution of thanks to the Rev.
Samuel Longfellow in appreciation of his kind

This pieco of wood once formed a part of tho

and In which Gen. Washington" and his wifo
wero entei talued.
Discussions followed as to tho proposed now
amendments to tho constitution, relative to tho
voting of ubsont membeis by sealed letter, etc.,
In which all present took part, which amend

TWO KINDS OF HOSE-JARS.
Ono Is a. Toy I'orovor and tlio Other Em-
phntlcnlly Is Not.
"How did you make your rose-jar?" I asked
a certain gay belle. Shoanswcrcd, with n laugh:
"I'll give you my reclpo and tho result, then you
go and try tho exact opposlto method. I pur
chased tho finest potpourri jar in tho market,
tho finest tablo salt, tho very spiciest spices,
and thowectest perfumes; and then I had sent
mo tho loveliest flowers you ever saw, which I
ruthlessly destroyed In their first freshness
without taking timo to enjoy them great roses
as big as a cup. Well, I put In first a layer of
salt; this, you know, is supposed to catch nnd
hold tho fragrant cssenco of tho flower, as docs
tho grcaso in tho oils of commerce. Tho salt I
strewed thickly with roso leaves, sprinkling
them with tho spices nnd perfumes; thon came
another layer of salt and a layer of roso loaves
and spices; so on to tho top. This is tho ortho
dox recipe, and I followed it carefully; but,
instead of growing sweeter, it became moro
and moro offensive, until finally I had t,o hold
my noso every timo I opened it. Bah I it wa3
A friendly druggist suggested a most happy
compromise. Preserve all of your flowers, wear
them, and enjoy them; then when they aro quite
withered pull them to pieces and dry them thor
oughly, spread out upon a paper his lovo let
ters If you like In a dark room, so that thoy
may retain their color. When ready for your
potpourri roll them In your hands, mixing with
them aiomatfc spices and tho best sachet pow
deis, sprinkling them with the finest cs'seuccs
and oils, mixing with them tho sweet lavender
llowers which are already dried. Then you will
havo a rose-jar that you will not bo afraid to
open. Or, better still, tako your dried leaves to
the druggist and ho will mix for you a potpourri
that will bo a joy forever. Tho rose-jar is a.
comparatively new craze, only two or three
years old, but a very dainty one. It fills a long
felt want, and suggested, perhaps, tho many de
vices for refreshing our parlors nnd bed-rooms
with pretty artistic trifles.
Tho taste for sweet scents is not, however, of
recent origin. It seems inherent In tho human
breast, and is as old as tho hills upon which
tho flowers blow. Though somewhat accentu
ated of late, 6incc they arc brought moro
readily within our reach, the fondness for
sweet odors seems to date hack to tho most
ancient of days to tho Garden of Eden, no
doubt. Fragrant woods, sandal and cedar,
wero used In the construction of tho tabernacle
in the wilderness, and also In Solomon's Tem
ple, whllo frankincense and myrrh wero burnt
as incense continually in tho service. Among
tho gifts sent by Jacob to tho rulers of Egypt,
when ho wished to propitiato them, wero "gifts
of frankincense aud myrrh," and theso samo
fragrant gums wero brought by tho wiso men of
tuo iiasr, to tuo miant saviour. Tho ancient
Greeks and Romans wero inordinately fond of
perfumes, which they used not only
in the anointing of their heads and
beards, but also about their houses and
garments. Evcu tho tyrant Nero showed
a weakness for perfumes, for one of tho
most costly is called by his uame, "Neroly,"
and, though still brought from Egypt, was
quickly adopted for tho production of essences
from tho numerous fragrance-bearing flowers
which grow in wild profusion iu Greece aud
Italy. "But long before this fragrant waters
wero in use in Arabia. Through all generations
and circumstances this taste has come down to
us, Our grandmothers could not afford or pro
euro esseutial oil or sweet-scented powders, per
haps, but they had their beds of lavender aud
chamomile and sweet fern, the leaves of which
wero carefully gathered aud laid on the shelves
between the folds of snowy homespun linen, and
a few leaves tied iu the corner of a handkerchief,
or a littlebagof sweetlaveuder deftly concealed
about the gown, then as now was indispensable
to a lady's toilet.
How Mrs. Imngtry Soaked the Colonel
Now York Star.
On the day succeeding tho one on which Mrs.
Langtry first lauded iu this country a wcathy
gentleman, Col. C, called upon tho Jorsey Lily
and presented a letter of introduction, written
by a friend of London. Ho was courteously re
ceived, of course, nnd a stroll upon Fifth avc
uuo and Broadway followed. Among the
places visited was Tiftany'6. Mrs. Langtry was
very much interested in what she saw. Think
ing that sho might fancy some triflo as a me
mento of tho visit, tho Colonel said, address
ing his fair companion:
"If you sec anything hero that pleases your
fancy, Mrs. Langtry, it will afford mo pleasure
to havo It sent to your hotel."
Tho Lily strolled along, glauclng at tho show
cases. Presently sho paused before a case filled
with diamonds. After a critical examination of
tho jewels she said, pointiug to a magnificent
necklace of steel-whlto diamonds: "I think you
may as well 6end that ouo up."
Tho Colonel did tho best to conceal his cha
grin. As soon as ho bado the lady good-bye at
tho entrance to tho Albemarle tho Colonel
hastened back to Tiffany's.
"What Is the price of tho necklace Mrs. Lang
try selected ?" ho asked.
"Seven thousand fivo hundred dollars !" was
tho responso. Colonel C. fell back In a fit. Tho
diamonds wero sent, hut when after that tho
Colonel called at tho Albemarle the Lily was
Invailably "uot at home."
