One of the surest stent that this hai not been
nn uncomfortably wnn summer In New York
Is the fact that not onco ha tlio report sono
abroad that tho supply of limes has clven out.
Tho summer of IHii? was one of terrlfylnir
rumors about limes, Ar soon as the mercury
climbed up toward the hundred mark a llmo
famine was reported. Thlw was n coimoiiuenee
of the fact that tho aarlous kinds of rlckoyi
which make the hot senson In Now York one
of not unalloyed misery all demand llmos. nnd
no substitute for them has been found. At
presotit times are so plentiful that purchasers

that element It would do more townrd

majority of nnswors would In all probability
uppi al lor some of tho suavity an I respectful

porters. All complaints acalnst them probably

Tho quality of Ice cream praised by n corre
spondent of Tni.pt , who thinks that l'lula
de'phla produces the best In thn world, has
lone been recosnlml by Now York dealers win
cavo the name of that tlty to what they made
sears awo. It was lntondod llrst nn recom
mendation, although persons have learned in
recent 5 ears that it has become a specific trado
description. " Philadelphia " Ice. cream Is qulto
distinct from " French " Ice cream, which costs
neatly twlco as much, and Is known In other
parts of tho country as frozen custard,
Tho pntron who orders meroly Ice cream now
adays, unless he coes to tho expensive estab
lishments which keep only one kind, has to
specify which of the two kinds ho wants.
Complaints of the quality of Ices in New York
will not be received with much seriousness
by porsons who know tho numerous establish
mentrt here that are famous for the quality of
their supplies Th"re are halt a dozen of these
not to lie excelled byntiy caterers In tho
world, and It Is to bo feared that persona
who find so much to say ncalnst the New
York article ham never had the prlvlleeo
of boeomlnsr acquainted with their quality.
If l'hllado'rhia. which la said by tho
correspondent to deserve this new honor,
were judeed by Us hokey-poltoy. probably
there would be little to say In favor of Its
facilities as an Ice cream centre. New York
has been judged imjustlv In this respect by
porsons who have hastily decided that Its
Ice cream Is worthless because tho casual
saucer which came their way was not up to
a required standard of excellence It will ho
confessed that tho lee cream of which New
York Is proudest may not alwavs be of nativo
manufacture. In fact. It is very likelv to bo
the creation of n man with a forelun name,
nlthouch this Is by no means the rule In any
case, the dory ot it beiones to New York.
The latest effort to obtain a pardon for Mrs.
Maybrlck seems destined to have no more re
sult than previous attempts, and tho same
reason seems to Heat tho bottom of this Inst
failure. Tho troubles of Mrs Mnybriek have
been made from the first tho opeortunlty for
various porsons to keep their names before
tho public, and this phnso of tho nffalr reached
Its height when tho manufacturer of n com
plexion remedy containing arsonlo set out
to get n list of women's names to present to
tho ISrltlsh Government with a petition
for her release. This tmbavor was c.ay
( iioukIi to understand, nnd th 'publicity sought
In the case seemed almost justifiable, In view
of the incomprehensible stiugules of others to
drug themselves Into public view at tho ex
pense of the woman con lined In nn Kncll'li
prison This aspect of the case has. of course,
been observed In Pngland Accounts of tho
last attempt in the London ptns mention with
poinethinc like satisfaction that Seeretaty Hay
"will Ignore a memorial presented to him by n
so-called Medical and I.egal Jbdlof Society .ask
ing him to Intervene In the esse of Mts.
Maybrlck." It Is ulso announced there th.it
rumors that Mrs. Choate has nlre.adv jnndo
representations for the convict's release are
tibsolutelv untrue. Pereons acquainted with
the facts In the case have only Incnased nm
pnthy for the woman whoso misfortune have
been so mercilessly used for tho teiniiorarv
notoriety they might brine to thO"o who were
apparently working in her behalf These
efforts have all been so maladroit that out osl

where sympathy might havu been hoped for.

Thoro win n rumor about town lostcrday
that nuumbor of the policemen who guarded
the Second nvonuti trolley bainsl.tst week wero
. nig to get Into sciiouh ttoublo with Chief
Devery nnd the Ko.anl of Police Commission
ers. The story had It that tho trouble had all
arisen from tho misuse ot meal tickets Issued
by tho Police Department tor tho men who
wero on duty day and night.
On Uio llrst night ot their service, according
to this story, the 1.000 polleomen, who had
been on duty since before dnv light, gladly ac
cepted from tho railroad oompany meal tickets
calling for 50 cents' worth of food at neighbor
ing restaurants. When wotd of this reached
Chief Devery, It was said, hu was very angry,
nnd Issued order that tio such tickets should
bo accepted Iti the future. To provide for thn
men ho had a number of tickets printed, which
ho countersigned, calling for a similar amount
of credit at the restaurants, Chief Devcrv was
quoted rn suylng that tho dopirttnent was
able to feed Its own men, and that ho wanted no
favois from the railroad company
Thetroub'o arose.su tho htory had It, when
tho mo.al tickets wero ptesented to Police
Headquarters for payment. It win said that
tho gieatcr iiumtier of them were not handed
In by lestuurant and hotel keepers, but by
saloonkeepers, cigar dealers timl others who
had either extended eiedit fm their goods to
tho extent of the ticket or h id bought them In
from the policemen at a d'seount fm cash. It
was dn'liiicd that Chief Devett had u'useil to
honor nil such ticket- and had P ,d the holder'
t a pre-Ptit tlieui to the bnaid for consiilr ra
It was nlso .1 .cinieil that nil men who lunl mis

In spite of the denial of the Chief, n number
of patrolmen who tveie seen bv the repoiter
declatedth.it the stotv was true Thoy snld
that the tickets bad hfon used more for liquor
and for elgnrs than for nie.il-. as the wiv s of
many of the men sent them lunches I hey
also admitted that a great uiiiiiy of the tickets
hud been sold bv the men at u discount to sa
"If tho thief says that tho saloon keepers
will not receive nnv money for their tickets,"
said one of the men, " thero will bo a howl go

Chief Devery did not explain how ha would
be able to refuse to honoi a ticket signed by

would bo able to tell whether the tickets had
been misused or had reached the hands ot the
