RIBBONS REPLACE BUTTONS
Washington Dudes- Expected to
Follow a New Tad.
Stewart Urlco's Enjrnjremont to Miss
"Virginia Fair Go nor ally Expected.
"Washington dudedom is likely to bo
thrillod with a new fad this corning winter
season, if it doos not liaruwn to come during
the autumn. Already It lias been blown
across the water from London, where It
first set sail, Into the fashionable strong
holds of the cluJj3 and along "The How."
It Is nothing more nor less in the dudes
tying up tlielr cuffs with giddy little ribbons,
doing tliolr wrists up in miniature sashes
the ends of which aro allowed to toy with
the winds of heaven as the dudes parade the
So far it lias not takou any very deep
root hi Now York with all those nice young
dream is that wlmn they die, they will be
transported at once, not to lieaven, but to
Loudon. That, however, is uo reason wliy
tlia near future should not witness a radical
Chang's in this respect. Then, as from New
York to "Washington, is such a trifling mat
ter or miles, there is every reason to supiwse
that the fad will be adopted without further
to do by the "Washington dudes and beaux
It all came about through the medium of
Prince George, who, oneday.forbomercason
best known to himself, or It may huve been
because of the carelessness of his valet in
misplacing the n rope r accessories ofthetoilet
for this purpose, went down London town
with his large cuffs tied together with
flaunting black ribbon. Before nightfall
word bad thrill-d through English dudedom
and there was a general discarding of cuff
buttons. Evory man of the Prince's set
as woll as the long list of outside hangers-on
bad bled themselves or sent their valets to
the haberdushcrs and supplied themselves
with a bolt of ribbon Tor this purpose of
tying together tucif -cuffs.
l)iu the poor deluded ouls but know it
tlielr little Tad IS after all uo Mich novelty
as tliey foudly imagine. It has been prac
tised by Irampdom from time im
memorial, only with this difference that the
tramp is always particular about the length
or breadth of the ribbou used in place of
the regulation cuff buttons.
However, to return to our mutton. It
is to be understood that the beribboned cuffs
are the thiug only for morningor promenade
costumes The ribbons, to bo in proper
style, must be tied through the cuffs and
tlieu made into a bow with floating ends.
Uuder no circumstances must a follower
of this uew fad allow himself to be hood
wiuWedlntoputUngareadyjpadc bo won his
cuffs as that would be as iuexcusablo in
dudedom as a ready made bow on a neek
lie. Newport Is expected to show up in this
line during the present season and if it
does take hold of dudedom at that fashion
able resort It is a foregone conclusion that
it will be seized upou by the "Washington
s wells and disported throughout Clubdom.
The opinion recently expressed in one
of the New York papers that the result of
the present season at Newport would be
the announcement of an engagement be
tweeu Miss Virginia Fair and the eldest
sou of Senator Briee, is shared very gen
erally by those of their friends who have
been watching the course ofevents.
The devotion of Mr. -Stewart Brice to
the California Jiejres lias, certainly been
very marked eer since the beginning of
the summer when they arrived at Newport.
As a matter of fact, it antedates that time
and goes back to the past winter, when Miss
Fair on" several occasions was the guest
of the-Brices in "Washington.
Things certainly all point in the dlrec
tionof a speedy anniiuncementof an engage
ment. Mr. Stewart Brice Js the one who
paced Miss Fair for her recenttest of speed
over the other fashionable women of
Newport along the ten-mile driveway on
horseback. Mr. Stewart Brice Is also the one
who seems from all accounts from New
port to have charge of Miss Virginia Fair's
efforts to learn to ride the bicycle.
Those who know Miss Fair well speak
of her as a young woman of far more than
the ordinary amount of cleverness, nud as
possessed mo:-nver of a distinct talent
for managing her business affairs.

Alcohol exploded, and;-a fire resulted,
about 8:50 o'clock last night in the cellar
of Henry Evans pharmacy. No. 038 F
street northwest, in which Thomas Con
nors, a soda fountain attendant, was pretty
Tliu alarm of fire was sounded from the
fateful firebox on the rout of Ford's
old theater. It was turned in by "Watch
man George "W. Montgomery, who heard
shouts of "Fire! Fire!" proceeding from
tho corner of Tenth and F streets. The
shouts were uttered by Mr. John S. Hark
ness, of Speare's undertaking "establish
ment. The alarm was turned in for an explo
sion of alcohol and the attendant blaze In
the cellar of Evans drug store Mr Hard
ness saw smoko pouring from the place,
and yelled "Fire!" at the top or his voice.
The explosion was accidentally caused by
Thomas Connors, a fifteen-year-old boy,
employed ut the soda fountain In the phar
macy, the lad being badly burned about
the legs and on one hand.
Connors went down into the cellar by
way of the stairs Just In the rear of the
soda fountain to get a demijohn of alco
hol for use In the store. As he was re
turning with tho vessel in one hand and
a lighted candle in the other, ho tripped
and fell up tho steps. As he did bo the
alcohol was spilled and the flame of the
candle came In contact with the liquid
and escaping gasess.
Connors found himself in the midst of
a mass of blue flame, tho lower part of
his clothing being ou fire. Ho yelled for
help and at the same time struggled
bravely to his feet and rushed up into
Several bystanders, not knowing bow
great the conflagration was below, seized
the lad and hurried hirrt Into the large
room In the rear of Speare's undertaking
establishment next door. There the cloth
ing was stripped from him aud his legs
found to be badly burned.
Applications of linseed oil and lime
water were made and bis'Iimbs and hands

Hodges in tho First precinct patrol wagon.
In the meantime the men of Engine No. 3,
Truck C, and the chemical had extinguished
tho firo in the cellar and brought the burn
Ingdebrls to the sidewalk. There wasgreat
excitement in the neighborhood and F street
was blocked for a considerable distance.
The stock of chemicals', dhigs, etc., In the
cellar amounted to nbout'53,000, and as it
Avas largely of a combustlble-and explosive
nature, a serious conflagration was nar
rowly averted. The fifemen ran a great
risk in entering tho sihofce-filled cellar,
not knowing what moment there would be a
Policeman McCart. who Is on that beat,
was "turning in" at adletant box when
the explosion occurred,' but was on the
