KRI "OSSa! week. Tho lino at the
flS-5 -" box-offico at night was
wfc S just as largo as that of
KPMcFf tho morning. The
TTO(gJWi management battled
yy5g3p5w3 By desperately with the
ySJIILjSj: speculators, much to
Jn VrttT '10 cbagrin of those
'jjJjO vff "-t encrgctio gentlemen.
Lots of four seats could bo obtained by any
body excopt a speculator, who, as soon as his
face appeared at tho window, was " spotted"
and his application promptly rejected. Tho
Academy pooplo risked any possible troublo
in thoir determination to defeat the specu
lators. They think they liiue done this, and
if they havo not it is not thoir fault.
Tho weak beforo Christmas, as has already
been doclared in these columns, is cordially
detested by managers and stars, aud no ono
has more reason to despiso it than Itichard
Mnnsflcld, who is at present playing at the
Tif th Avonue Theatre Mr. Mnnsfleld is do
servodly popular in this city, is an extremely
rlovcr chnrncter actor aud is making rapid
strides towards the front rank of tho profes
sion. In ordor to bo on time in Now York,
Mr. Mansflold, with his company, camo from
St. Louis by a special train, which cost him
something liko 91.100. Inviowofthe fact
that ho had been absent for somo timo from
tho metropolis, it was thought thnt, in Bpito
of Christmas week, ho would havo a good
houso for tho opening night. Ho was doomed
to disappointment. It is said on good au
thority that tho recoipts for tho first night
werolessthanSlOO. Monsiour" is undoubt
edly moro of a summer than a wintor at
traction (tho seasons are very distinctly
marked in tho theatrical world) and it is ox
tremely likely that after Christmas, with
" Dr. Jokyll and Mr. Hyde," Mansfield will
crowd the Fifth Avenue.
Thero is a rnmor of coming troublo at what is
now bocoming known as the American Theatro
in London that is tho Princess's at present
controlled by Miss Grace Haw thorne and W.
f. Kelly. A well-known thoatrical man in
London writes, that in the event of
" Siberia " not proving successful tho Amcri
can management will be in rather a queer
position. Theatrical pcoplo hero seem to
hopo that if thero bo any trouble it will end
satisfactorily, as American work is gaining a
strong foothold in London and managers
here begin to speak very affectionately of tho
old country. Both Mr. Kelly and Miss
Hawthorne insist thnt their places havo been
considerably disturbed by Mauuger A. M.
Palmer, with whom they were to have pro
duced ' ' Theodora." They talk of bringing
suit against him. On tho wholo things seem
to.be considerably involved over thero.
Miss Annie Kobe, that charming actress,
comes to tho front again in New York on
Saturday night, in " Anarchy," at tho
Standard Theatro. This young lady who
must havo suffered from bad advice, has been
"barn-storming" the American towns, for
the first timo in her experience. Now that
she has been through the towns in which one
night engagements aro played (in profes
sional parlance "one.night stands"), sho
will probably be n wiser woman. Miss Kobe
I is so clever an actress that she ought never to
leave New York. Hor experiences on tho
road will doubtless tend to Keep her hero.
McKee Kankin says ho will play " Mac
beth " in Washington New Year's wock. This
spectacular production in Brooklyn was an
nrtistio success, and Mr. Itnnkin deserves
great credit for it. Finauciolly, however, it
docs not seem to havo been very successful,
ns some of tho " supers " nnd boveral of the
principals aro said to bo still waiting for their
Mrs. "Ward, bettor known as Helen Dan
vray, still takes a vigorous interest in base
ball. With hor husband, Capt. Ward, she is
touring tho country, and when last heard of
was in Now Orleans, full of excitement about
A game being played thero.
Miss Carrie Turner will not travel with
Arthur Itohan and his company after this
week. It is generally believed, howover,
that Arthur Rohan will not travel with Miss
Carrio Turner. This young lady seems of
' Into to havo become possessed .of a mania for
constant changes. Mr. Iteban's company is

from Mme. Baynald asking him to com and

importance to tell him.
As soon ns ho entered her drawing-room
sho bndo him bo scntcd, and began as follows:
"My dear friend," said she, "I am ex

ment, aptly termed tho morguo of tho malls.
Despite tho circulars which tho dopartmont is
constantly Bonding out dosoribing tho evil
and suggesting remedies, tho work of this
branch is increasing.
In tho Now York office nlono thero has been
nu incrcano in (lend. loiter packages ovor last
year of 59,880 pieces, tho total number of
parcols. received, cither misdiroctod or not
directed at all, being 998,172. But for tho
oxcellent system in operation tho numbor of
mail parcels dropped into boxes and never
hoard from would multiply amazingly. Evon
ns it 1b, tho jlozen or moro dorks who soem
ablo to rtad all tho known and many un
known languages have thoir hands full from
early morning until long after tho sun has
set. And now. in tho holiday season, extra
arrangements have to be provided for tho ro
ception of the dead matter. Indeed, it seems
that the public is so busy nowadays that it
can't find time oven to direct its mail, and
thousands of Iottors aro daily dropped into
boxes with no address.
Probably those thoughtless senders believe
that tho department is gifted with clairvoy
ance or second sight, and don't got over their
delusion till their letters aro returned. This
matter is increasing more rapidly, perhaps,
than any othor portion of the mall rccoivod,
while letters insoribed in Egyptian charac
ters, or equally legiblo ones, called English
by courtesy, have tho call for second place
Then come packages of merchandise, somo
without wrappers, many without addresses,
and many moro with insufficient postage, all
of which ultimately find a niche in tho mail
morgue at Washington.
In a single year in the New York office let
tors held for identification and representing
125,110, wcro returned to rightful owners.
This, too, was an off year for valuable lot
ters, for in 1881 letters containing money or
checks representing $324,804, were delivered
nftor having gone nstrav. Indeed, in a singlo
day, checks for $35,000 havo found owncm
after going through tho Dcad-Lcttor Office.
It may bo stated, as on evidence of tho per
centage of packages recovered, that last year
out of 9,937 that reached the Deod-Lettor Do
partment, inoluding merchandise only, with
out wrappers, 4,080, or about 60 per cout.,
were identified and dolivcred.
There is every opportunity given a sender
of mail packages to recover it if not delivered.
When it reaches tho Dcad-Lcttor Department
at the Post-Offico.if it is a packago of merchan
dise, it is opened, the contents enumerated,
nnd their description entered under an initial
letter in a big lost-packago book provided
for that purpose. Tho Post-Office holds tho
package for sixty days and then sends it to
Washinglon. Here it remains a year, and if
not identified, is sold at public auction.
With sealed packages, notably letters, n
similar method is pursued, save that, tho
looal offico turns tho matter ovor to tho
Washington department unopened. If the
letter is not valuable tho junk dealer probo
blv enjoys the epistolary vows meant for an.
other, or roads tho duns of tho still waiting
Photographs seem to havo tho gift of got
ting astray with moro persistency than any
other mailable artiolo, and tho day is consid
ered a bad ono when ot least three or four
packages are not received. In a month a
. hundred of these packages collect in tho
office, which fact suggests many possibilities'
to tho photograph fiend.
JuBt now the department is bothered with
matter for foreign delivery improperly sent.
As three out of five senders fail to comply
witli the postal regulations, tho littlo oflico
fordoad-lottor packages on tho second floor
is overflowed with evidences of public caro
lossness, stupidity or neglect. But it con
tinues, whatever is dono to prevent it, and
In tho letters and parcels opened at tho
Washington office during tho year and re
turned to owners, thero was represented in
money and negotiable papor $7,101,400, while
29,497 packages contained photographs.
" Great heavens 1 That's a good idea. My
dear madame, you havo won the day."
Two davs later Count de la Ville-Gris was
comfortably ensconced in a largo armchair
near the fire, reading the papers, while littlo
Roso Paumicr sat on the hearth-rug, rosting
her blonde head on his knee. Sho was hold
ing one of the young man's hands between
her little soft white fingers and kissing it
passionately from time to timo.
Suddenly a servant onterod bearing a large
official-looking lettor on a silver salver.
Bote took It from him. and asked hor lover
If ho would allow her to opon it for him. Ho
laughingly assented, but hardly had the poor
little woman glanced at tho large sheet of
paper contained in the envelope than, with a
scream of pain, she foil full length on tho
carpet, sobbing bitterly.
The letter whs from the Minister of Marine
ordering Count Noel de la Ville-Gris to join
his ship, the Penelope, now in the port of
Toulon, that very night, or at tho latest
within twenty-four hours.
" Ah 1" cried Hose, in the midst of her dis
tress, " do not go to-night. Please do not go
to-night, at least."
Noel left on tho morrow, and as soon as ho
arrived at Toulon ho went on board tho
" Wo were expecting you," remarked the
Captain, "nad it not been for you, wo
should have started twenty-fours ago. I ro.
ceived a despatch from tho Minister of
Marino informing mo that a Third Lieutenant
was to join my ship. It was you. I wclcomo
you on board."
On tho 15th of January, 1864, at 4 o'clock
in the aftornoon, the Penelope left Toulon
bound for Madeira, Senegal, tho Gaboon and
other West African stations. Hno was a new
and handsome frigato and this was to bo hor
After Nool's departure Baynald and his
friends besieged Bose Paumior with ro.
newud ardor. But the littlo danseuso would
not listen to reason.
"I am in lovo with Noel, and I will not bo
untrue to him." said sho, crying bitterly.
Her mother, Mme. Paumior. remonstrated
with her, pointing out all tho advantages
that she would derivo from the friendship of
such a man as Banker Baynald, but it was
all of no avnil.
Howover, tho banker did not loso heart
now that the young lover was gone. Ho
know that winning ltoso's good will was only
a question of time. He had already becomo
quite a different man. Ho once moro busied
himself at his office, and not only made good

When it draws near she makes a wobbly,
fluttering movement with hor arm, generally
holding hor shawl in with her right hand. A
look of dismay and anxiety porvades her
visngo if tho driver does not roin in tho
tho horses at once. When ho pulls up, sho
gathers horsolf together nnd shoots forward
to clambor in.

When sho saw the driver draw near sho
in ado a funny Hop with hor limp left hand, a

to an " Ohl-you-horrid-thingl.I-can't-bcar

Tho driver nodded ahead to the nearest
crossing, indicating whero ho would stop.
Ho was young, but insensible to tho sex.
She seemed paralyzod by his courso for n
moment. Then sho caught hold of her dress
aud reefed it for action. Then slio begau to
run. Few women can run without making a
spectacle of themselves, and this is especially
true of on elderly woman who hates violent
motion and has to hold up her dress. She
moved along liko a frightened duck, or BOine
other fowl whoso forto is not pedestriauism,
a fowl of limited intelligence and short legs,
She put down her heols in a regular heel-and-toe
style, but that was her only qualifi

sho halted, gazed timidly at a carriage half a
block away, as if wondering whether sho was
in danger of being run over, then dropped hor
foot from tho curbstone and ambled across
to tho stags.
Tho next patsengor showed the other ex

Nearly all tho women Btand on tho curb

Wnen George Mason, the father of the Virginia
Rill of nights, advanced as an argument against tho
Constitution that It provided for a class of officials
woo, from their long reildence at tho oapltal,
would 'become so attached to the enjoyment of
power that ttiej would build houses for themselves
at the seat of Government, and ao build op a class
of ollgarchlata," ho made a prediction that has not
fallen far ahort of truth. The Senators who havo
built houses for themselves In Washington num
ber now well on towards Of ty. A house that will
do lor a Congressman will not answar for a Sena
tor. A larger eatabllsomcnt la required, suited to
the wider and more tllvets character of hla official
responsibilities. A Congressman can be seen al
most any day ln hU aeat In the House. The customs
of tne Senate rather forbid such familiarity, and
hcJce the Senator about with exclusive barriers.

The entrance hall la the biggest, the most Impos

apartment In a modern Now York house of the first
rank. New Yorkers of wealth and taste have en
tirely abandoned the iiralght ball of tho narrow
block-house whero the stairs go straight up und tho
narrow paasaga to the back parlor and basement
stairs goes straight back. Instead they have made
the hall the central feature of the establlanment.to
whlon, If ni-ceaaarr, everything elao la subordi

architectural features, richly antlquo In Ha farniak

any tato whatever tor 1 rgc decorative elfocta It la
upon the hall that she lavlsho- them. The hall, In
deed, la so much of a hobby that people build new
houses ln order to have halls.
It la not an unknown thlug to give up the whole
first rloor tu the hall, putting tho parlor on the sec

His expectations of being soon tired of ltoso

That same evening a despatch was sent by

devotion to tho Government and alluded to

Ho did go, and declared to His Excellency
the Minister of tho Interior that if tho Pe

would join tho opposition party and begin a

The Minister asked him two days for re.

told about Itaynald, tho bankor, is true ?" ofm
"ltavnald? Oh, yes; itistrno. But it w -Kl

million francs, aud even then she will never 2&ll
