The Knickerbocker Howling Club, which
is tho most fashionnblo.of all tho organiza
tions of its class, will .y-JO
not comincnco its Wfrl
k regular meetings until '"v
Lent. It has acquired f
tho title of tho " Swag. 7

from thoir weekly 'vfaiJr'

largest membership of any of its rivals and
includos within its select circlo not n few
representatives of Gotham's upper swelldom.
The idea of postponing activo athletics
until Lent is regarded by all tho members as
ovidenco of tho largo nnd wcll.proportionod
i lieodB of the Exccutivo Committee, which
proposed tho scheme. Outsido social affairs
keep most of tho members too busy for tho
present to pormit them to waste any oven
ings in Buch a humdrum manner as rolling
woodon balls about or knocking rubber balls
over a not. After tho round of dissipation,
which for tho present season promises, if
anything, to be moro exhausting than usual,
tho need of somo reactionary treatment will
certainly bo folt. Then bowling and tennis
will bo just tho thing to strengthen tho ro
' laxed museles, and tone up tho system that
has been worn out by late hours, Wagnerian
opera and innumerable champagne suppers
As tho club, despito its largo membership,
j X lias tho reputation of doing less bowling than

On these occasions somo of tho ladies nn-

Tho machinery for propelling tho car is
simple It is under tho control of tho con.
ductor, who stops or starts tho car or rogu
latcs tho speed with a touch. Tho current of
electricity is producod by a powerful Btcam
engino and conveyed to tho cars in transit by
moans of two heavy copper wiros supported
by polos and passing over tho roadway its en.

descends to tho motor, which is placed in
tho forward part of tho car, and is carried
along over tho top of tho conducting cablo
by a pulley or groovod wheel running ovor it

Tho road is six miles in length. Tho

at tho old car stables, about midway botween
its termini. Tho road will bo lightod with

Conductor Pocketed Mont or Them.
" I had always held bell punches, street,
car registers and spotters in detestation, and
had an enduring faith in tho honesty of man,
until I mado an early morning trip down
town tho other day," said a downtown mer
chant. " My journey was made on a surfaco
car, and my observations of the conductor
led mo to tho conclusion that all of tho do.
vices for preventing thoft by employees aro
justifiable, yet unavailing.
" I boarded the car at Thirteenth street and
found myself ono of thirty-two passengers.
I havo no idea of knowing how many moro
had boarded and left tho car in its long jour,
noy down to that point. Tho conductor
Btoppod in his perusal of a morning news
paper long enough to collect my faro and re.
sumed his seat on tho rear rail and his scan,
ning of the day's nows. Tho bell of the fare
register did not ring, and I glanced at the
dial to find that, according to tho conductor's
record, ho had counted but nino passengers
on the down trip. This was tho boldest bit
of ' knocking down I evor saw. Only nino
registered when fifteen boarded tho car at
ono stop ! I don't blame the railway corpora,
tious for thoir precautions."
Mr. Potter Promtird Not to UIm.
From a Jftta Yorlc Lttttr.
Mrs. James Brown-Potter promised her husband,
Juit before her dlbut here as a professional actress,
that sho wonld never allow her mimic loveri of the
tage to klu her. That 1b what her acquaintances
in society say, and tbe story U clrcamttaMlally
proven before her audiences. In the first play In
which she was a heroine the courtship did not re
Bult In marriage, nor even In a sentimental sur
render, and so tho absenco of Hasina did not at
tract much attention. But It w&g different
In the ensuing piece. There she was
the intensely beloved wlfo ot tho hero,
and at the outlet they wero repre
sented as meeting after month! of separation.
They rushed at each other, as husband and wife
might naturally be expected to; they embraced af
fectionately, they held passionate discourses for a
quarter of an hour, and then they reluctantly
parted again, bnt neither In the greeting nor the
good-by was a kiss exchanged, lira. Potter per
mitted a hng and a few caresses, but the lips of her
supposed husband never touched her face. It was
cunons to observe how quickly the audience, cren
to tho least sophisticated, took note of the lack or
the reasonable action. Comment on that point
buzzed all over the house.

Let our public schools teach less Latin, Orcek and

In this regard. They are apt to lock opon a me

woman passes by the honeit, Industrious mechanlo
becauso he has too much good sense to make a dash
or Imitate the raonkor shines of tno Itinerant dndo.
Let tho press und the publio take up this subject aud
banish this silly prejudice out of our country.
Thero li nothing to bo uiharcod of In work. Christ
was a carpenter. Let the coxcomb who has noth

works be ashamed of tils hsrd hands. A hammer la
