Header, didst ever soo a hallelujah wed
ding? Probably iiot Well, in Uib first place.
it may bo said that the ceremony, in its es
sential points, differs very little from nn or
dinary niarriago ceremony in tho must staid
and conservative church; but to these essen
tials ore nddod peculiar accomiianinients
which make of tho hallelujah wedding n cer
emony which stands by itself us something
wholly unique and inimitable.
It took place in the drill-shod. The whole
cast end of tho building was occupied by
salvation soldiers and hallelujah lasses,
sitting tier aboro tier, and packed
close together, like spectators in a
circus tent. Many of tho soldiers and
losses had bannerets of blue, rod and
yellow, which they moved on the slightest
provocation; a good many bad tambourines
which they pounded and jingled when noiso
was needed, and tho remainder had liandker
cbiefs, which thoy kept in hand ready to
move at a given signal Thero were -100 or
500 Salvationists crowded together on these
raised seats. Then? must have lieen 1,000
people in tho building besides tho Salvation
ists and they paid 15 cents a piece to get in,
lliu bndo was Capt Eliza Crosby, of Col
linguood, and tho bridegroom Capt. Happy
Bill Cooper, the irrepressible commanding of
ficer of the Hamilton corj'- Before the ar
rirnl of Mnj Mooro (tho American com
innudcr; and his staff, tho army
aniavd itself by singing salvation
hymns set to popular tunes mid
making merry remarks to each other. Pres
ently a great shout arose from tho soldiors,
and all the occupants of tho raised scats rose
to their feet and wa ed their tuinborines,
hnnderchiefs, bonnets and banners, cheering
xociferously. Tins demonstration meant
that Maj Mooro and his staff liad arrived.
Tho inthu-iiaMii had hardly subsided when a
big man with a husky voice shouted: "Kiro a
volley for Mnj Moore "and liefono ho liad
got tho words out thero burst forth .i storm
of 'liallelujahi!" nnd thobanrcrs, etc, wx-ro
wildly wa cd again.
'ii.e i cal services wero begun by u praj-er
fromllcv. Mr. Thompson, tho "saved ioti-sou,"
who, after eighteen 3'ears in tho Metl.o list
ministry, taw Uto error of his ways, tepciitcd
of his miis, nnd joined tho arm). Ho offerc I
up a rather curious invocation. 'Oh, lord,"
ho Mild, wo know that jou nro not avcrso to
weddings, fordidjou notgoas a guet to
the wedding nt Cana in Galilee! Now wo in
vite jou here; wo know you will come, nnd
jou will lio welcomo."
After tho prnjer two or tlireo rousing
hymns wero sung. Maj. Mooro then an
nounced that the ceremony was going to tako
place, nnd immediately thero was bustle and
excitement among tho t-icftalors and n cruh
toward tho platform. Boon tho brido and
bridegroom emerged from tho crod of ofll
ccrs nnd stood opposito each other, sur
rounded by their friends. Happy Bill's, de
meanor i id not beho his name. His pale,
livid faco was wreathed with smiles. Ho
stood in nu easy, careless attitude, nnd all
through tho ceremony mado funny itmiarks
to tiioso standing near, nnd occasionally
would extend his arms to tlio soldiers with a
request that thoy should "firo a volley," a re
quest t hut altt j s received a prompt npon.se.
Tho liriilo xvas not nearly as svlf-iKissesscd as
her chosen lord nnd master. She stood with
drooping eyelids and head bent, but her faco
w oro a quiet look of contentment, Slio is a
nice looking person w ith a trim figuixt and a
demure pretty faco.
llov. Mr. Thompson now camo forwnrd
mid took Mnj Moore's position and read the
regular marriage scrvj"o of the Chuith of
l!nglaud. When bo mado his first response
Happy Bill could not contain his cnthussin,
but ns soon ns he uttered in a sonorous volca
the all important "Idol" he waved his arms
towards the crowdod scats nnd shouted 'fire
a volleyl" Immediately tho big building
rang with hallelujahs!" "nmons!" tho shriU
voices of tho women rising high over ths
men's heavy bass roars. Tho Salvationists'
cheer U something wortli hearing. Talk
about tho "hearty British cheer," or "the wilJ
AHieu tho timo came to place the ring on
tho bride's linger, Happy Bill dived into hi
IKykct for tho hoop of gold. Ho fumbled for
a fow seconds, and his faco took on n look of
ntmety; but presently ho produced tho ring.
"The signet's nil ready!" shouted Maj. Mooro.
A roar of laughter followed, and of courso
there was a suittenng firo of "hallelujahs"
from tho brethren nnd sisters w ho could i.ot
seo wlint xvas going on. After a whilo com
parative silence was restored, nnd tho tere
n. on ? was resumed.
"For lictter, for xvorso," said Bill, relat
ing tho xvords after tho savod parson.
"There's noworo nlwut it!" shouted tho
major, nnd tho uproar broko out afreslL
The bridegroom then grasped tho hand of
his bride nnd x igorously pushed tho ring on
her third linger, nnd as she held her hand
lingering!' he repeated after tho parson tho
words to tho effect that he Imstoued iqwn
her all his "worldly goods." As ho uttered,
tho wonls ho laughed outright at tho ridicu
lousness of tho idea. Mnj. Coomlics shouted
Ironically: "Ho gn-os her all his worldly
goods) Why ho hain't got nonel"
Another outburst of laughter nnd cheers
followed this remark, nnd tho ceremony was
finished lieforo the hubbub subsided. Only
the concluding words from tho parson wero
heard: "Whom God has joined together lit
no man put asundor." Tlien followed a per
fect whii In ind of cheers, nil tho occiijiniitj
of the raised seats rising to their feet, wav

'Thompson rend thnt portion of Scripturo
which sots forth the duties of wives to their
husbands nnd of husbands to their wives.
When this xvas concluded tho brass land
rtruck up a lively air which they played
through several times without variations.
Major Mooro then stepped forward with a
large Bible, which ho placed in tho hands of
tho bridegroom. Ho explained to tho audi

TO THINE OWN SELF BE TRUE.
Fakenham Beatty, in Spectator.
By thino oxrn soul's law learn to live.
And if men thwart thee take no heed,
And if men hate thee have no care;
Sing thou thy song and do thy deed,
Hope thou thy hope and pray thy prayer.
And claim no crown they will not give,
Nor bays thy grudge thee for thy hair.
Keep thou thy soul-sworn steadfast oath,
And to thy heart be true thy heart;
What thy soul teaches learn to know,
And play out thy appointed tart:
And thou shalt reap as thou shalt sow.
Nor helped nor hindered in thy growth.
To thy full stature thou shalt grow.
Fix on the future's goal thy face,
And let thy feet bo lured to stray
is'owlnther, but be swift to run,
And nowhere tarry hy the way,
Until at last the end is won,
And thou inay'st look back from Uiy placo
And sco thy long day's journey done.
GENTLEMEN'S DRESS IN ENGLAND.
"aiornlns" and "Evenlnc'
Toxin and Country.
London Cor. Sun Francisco Argonaut
In tho first place, dress in England is di
vided into "morning" and "evening" dress,
and each has a well-defined and understood
meaning, aside from mere name. Morning
tin ss is that which is worn until dinner, and
cv ening dress that xv orn at dinner and after
ward. The dressing-bell for dinner is tho di
viding lino between tho two. This rule as to
dress is thoroughly well known and strictly
followed in jiolite society. To appear in even
ing dress or any approach to it a white
netktio or black trousers, for instance in
tho morning, or in morning dross, or any ap
proach to it, in tho ex ening, xiould be a
breach of propriety rulllciently serious to
inks tho jiersou infringing tho rule looked
upon as of low origin or eccentric ways.
Good Lroeduig and eccentricity, except in
great people w hose position in tho world
shuts one's oes to defects, can never go
hand in hand. A well-bred man always
drosses as bo Lobavcs properly. Morning
dress in tho country and in town ilitTer con
siderably. In tho country t is a jacket suit of tweed
or scrgo "dittoes," ns an entire suit of the
samo pattern and material is called. With
tins, a hard, round felt hat is always worn; a
tall beaver hat never. On Sunday, in tho
country, it is different. Then nt church to
which every rcspcctablo man, let alouo gen
tleman, goes nt least once a man should
w ear a dark cloth frock or morning coat but
toned, and a tall hat. After church, if he
like-!, ho tan thnngo to a suit of dittoes again.
How ov er, tho mlo of a black coat and tall hat
nt church in tho country is not as absolutely
followed as other rules, though n man is al
najson tlie safe side when ho follows it
In town, particularly during tno season, a
man can never appear in tho street, in tho
park, at his club, or a morning concert, in
other than a dark cloth frock or morning
coat (buttoned;, trousers of any color but
black light, or dark gray, or brown of any
fashionable ivattern !ing preferable nnd a
tall hat. To wiar a low -crowned round hat
w ith a frock or morning coat would stamp a
man directly. That this is a thing which
rhoiild never bo done is what I would especi
ally impress ujion American gentlemen, for
it, as well ns that of w earing n tall beaver
bat with a jacket (or "sack" as it is called in
America), is a habit which I hav o noticed
they nro much addicted to.
A Very Neat Swindle.
INew York Herald.
A polite j ouug man, dressed in fashionable
attire, walked up to tho cigar stand in tho
Victoria hot 1 , estcnlay and asked for a box
of tho most costly cigars sold in tho place.
"I haven't timo to xviit just now," he
added, looking nt his watch, ' but ou may
send tho cignrs to my father, at No. 7 East
Then tho iolito young man went away
hurriedly. Tho outh in thargo of tho stand
sent for a messenger to whom ho guvo tho
box of cigars, with strict instructions that it
should not bo delivered unless paid for in
casli. When tho messenger reached No. 27
East Twenty-sixth street ho found two young
men in their shirt-slecv u, sitting on the
stoop. Ono of them was tho jiohto young
"Oh, hero nro the cigars," ho said.
"Whero m the money 1" queried tho messen
ger. "Al, go utvstnirs nnd tell a tho cigars
havo come, said tho jiolito young man to
his companion. "Tell him to send down tho
money. By tho way, my boy, where is tho
"What brandy V
"Well, row, that's stupid, and pa will be
X'ery angry. I ordered some brandy at the
hotel, and it was to bo sent with tho cigars.
You had lietterrun around tho corner to the
hotel nnd get tho brandy nt once."
Tho messenger did ns ho was told, and
learned at the hotel that no brandy had been
ordered. When ho got back to tho houso on
Twenty-sixth street ho could not find tho
oung men or tlio cigars. He rang the door
liell and it was answered by nn elderly Sjkui
ish gentleman, who said ho was not tho i a of
tho oung men, and knew nothing about
either them or tho cigars.

"Good morning-. Deacon ; you walk off as
spry as a boy, for all you are so old."
"Why, law bless you, I can't help it; lean
see so well with my new spectacles It appears
to put new life in me. I actually feel twenty
years younger, and I have had them only a
short time. Yon see, 1 Hid not buy when Dr.
Yost first came to Wichita : I thousht I would
Just, wait and let some others try. I hail paid
out no mucn money ior spectacles, anu my eyes
weragettlng poorer anu joorer an me time,
that 1 had about despaired of ever Retting any
thing that would stay the dreadful loss of sight,
lint when I came to see and talk with my nelgh
lors, and with people from other parts of the
country who had uted Dr. Tost's Improved
lenses (come of them Tor years) , I concluded I
would try it once more, and I am frank to con
fess the) arc far ahead of my expectations.
Oh, yes, it's a hard country on eyesight. All
this western prairie country Is much harder ou
on the eyes than the eastern states, and come to
thbik or it, it Is as much-out of place to try to
use the old stvle of spectacles here In Kansas as
Itwonldbe to try to farm with the old style of
farming tools, ana, sir, luou'i Hesitate to say
that the nun that wout go to Or. Yost and be
fitted with a pair ot his improved lenses ought
to have his self-binder and Improved plows
taken from him, and be compelled to cut his
grain with the old hand sickle and plow with
the wooden-mouldhoard plow."
It is Just as important to nse Improved leuses
properly fitted. In order to save eyesight, as It
Is to use the seir-hinder to save grain In this
Xo use talking, nothing short of Dr. Yost's
improved sjiectaclcs will save the vision In this
ilsv anil age.

Tit tcon j enrs ago Henry M. Crano was ono
of Sclunectadv'srnost prominent men. Re
siding at Crane's Factory, now known as
Jlolnwkv ille, he was a successful manufact

with reverse, nnd his extensive fortune of

lieve, unsuccessful. Ileccutiy ho secured a
)ositiou as iwrtor of tho Tacific hotel, San
Francisco. Only a few weeks ago, whilo
thus employed, Mr. Crano rectivod tho grati

Sm Knuieiv o banker for the sum of $10,000,
which sum had been placed to hi? credit by
his brother, Jonathnn Crane. It hoeins tliat
this brother had lxvn lounod $10,000 by
Henry many jenrs ngo when the latter was
in prosperity, and tho brother having re
cently "struck luck" paid back tlio same, to
gether with compound interest for all thorn
years. The many friends of Henry M.
Crano in Schenectady nnd vicinity will bo
gratified to learn of his return to prosperity.
