Indeed, to be up to date to-day It is alo
lutely necessary for a woman to understand
the handsome art of driving. Nearly every
woman has awakened to this fact aud set
about remedying thedeflclcnciesof her edu
cation In this line.
LEARNING TO DRIVE.
While in town, probably, she went twice
or thrice a week to one of the few schools
where driving, four-in hand driving par
ticularly, is taught.
Iu a mouth or six weeks she. acquired
the rudiments aud some of the flourishes.
In two or three months" time. If clever
and possessed of well-trained nenes,
wjjts of steel and "light hands," she
graduated with honors, feeling quite equal
to the task of guiding four horses, a spike
team or a tandem at least safely through
the park, If not through the intricacies
of "cutting the figure 8" an accomplish
ment which every man -nho drives four
hordes thinks he understando, whether he
is ever bold enough to try it or not.

Mrs. John Jacob Astor received her first
instruction in driving a fcur-In-hand from
Dr. Seward Webb, and although she has
proved herself a skillful whip upon thefew
occasions when she has driven, doubtless
when she takes her next trip to Paris she
will put herself under Howlett's instruc
tion. Mrs. George Gould, who Is now abroad. Is
perfecting her knowledge of the same ac
complishment through his assistance. Last
winter Mrs. Gould made her first essay at
driving four horses; she was out nearly
every fine day on the roads about Lake
wood. Mrs. W. K. Vandcrbllt has never cared
for the siiort, preferring to have others do
all hard work of tills kind for her; her L
daughter, Consuelo, however, intends to
add a knowledge of driving to her other
accomplishments. She is seen nearly every
day in a new basket-shaped phaeton, fin
ished in brown and black, with brown
leather back seats, and handsome brown
silk cushions wiUi her initials worked

The church over which Dr. Power has
presided so long was organized with only
a few members In 1843 by Dr. J. T. Bar
clay, subequently a missionary to Jeru
salem, and author of "The City of the
Great King." Meetings were held from
bouse to house and in public halls, as
necessity required, or convenience dic
tated, until 18G9, when a frame bouse
of worship was purchased from the South
ern Methodists and removed to tbesite
now ocupled on Vermont avenue. It was
occupied until the erection of the pres

pastor. He continued his labors two years
and ILen removed to Virginia. He was
succeeded by O. A. Bartholomew, now
of St. Louis, whose labors continued un
til 1873. when he removed to other fields.
After an Interval of two years Fred D.

Parking Commission Wonts Xntnreto
A meeting was yesterday held of the
Farking Commission for the purposo of
discussing the condition of street shade
trees. At the conclusion of the session
the following report was transmitted to
the District Commissioners:
"Experience proves that In previous
years caterpillars have existed in fully
equal nuinlicrs tobe followed the next year
by comparatively few.
'The wood at this season is too fully
matured to n'istain much damage, and
the commission advises that as little money
as possible be spent this season In trying
to abate the nuisance."
In Justification of th9 opinion expressed,
an extract was given from a former re
port, Eubmitt'd under date of June 30,
1837, as follows:
"Notwithstanding the ravages of cater
pillars last year, the trees have never ap
peared in a healthier condition than they
did laet May. Even those which were al
most denuded of leaves last August by the
brflods of insccls showed no symptoms of
