Question, on Point of Etiquette Answered
by tbe Antbor of Don't Mistakes to Be
Arolded Duties of Hosts and Hostesses
rwEITTEX FOR THE DISPATCH.2
"Will you correct the following invitation?
"You and family are invited to be present
st the dedication of the "WilliamsviUe TJn
ion Sabbath School Chapel, February 22,
10:30." The chapel was to be dedicated in
the morning; collation at noon. Should
there have been any order of exercise on men
tion of collation in the invitation? There
was no address except the envelope, no sig
nature, date or State mentioned. "Williams
ville is not a township. It caused much an
noyance by its vagueness. Is "you and
family correct?" Sakah M. Davis.
The invitation should have read '"you and
your family," and somewhere the place should
nave been indicated. It read, "To be present
at the dedication of the Union Sunday School
chapel on Friday, February 22, at 10S0 A. MM"
and then given the name of the town and date
of invitation, the wordingwould have been cor
rect. It shonld have been signed by the com
mittee or secretary or someone having au
thority to issne the invitation.
At a morning wedding where the bride wears
a travebng dress, should the groom wear a
Prince Albert coat and gray trousers, or would
It be the proper thiog for him to wear a cut
away coar and trousers to match. Please en
lighten and oblige. A Bachelor.
He should wear a Prince Albert coat. A cut
away coat is. stnetly speaking, only suitable
for business purposes.
In marking bed clothing, etc that It, mark
ing the initials for a trosscau should they be
embroidered in a single initial? I should pre
fer that If T)roper." 2. And should the Initials
be that of tbe bride's maiden name or that of
the groom's family? Lyxne.
1. Yes, if preferred. 2. The bride's maiden
A EIDING ESCOET'S DUTIES.
In what manner should a gentleman help a
lady from a horse? E. C. T.
H. L. DeBussigny gives In his "Hand-book
for Horsemen" directions for mounting and
dismounting a horse, from which we extract
the following "Tbe gentleman who xnaynish
to assist a lady should stand facing her at the
left side of the horse, his right foot slighting in
advance of his left. He should then stoop and
offer his left hand for her foot, and place his
right hand under her left to steady her as she
rises. He should count aloud with her one,
two, three, and at three be should straighten
himself, giving a strong support for her left
foot. At one. the lady should prepare to spring
by assuring herself that she is standing square
ly on her right foot; at two, she should bend
her right knee, keeping her body straight; at
three, she should spring strongly from her
right leg. In dismounting the lady should slip
her toot out of the stirrup, and her leg over the
pommel, sitting sideways on the saddle for an
instant; then give her left hand to her assist
ant ana let herself slip to the ground."
L In attending an afternoon reception is it
proper to leave a card? 2. And if more than
one lady receives should you leave jour card
for each receiving lady?
Yes. to both questions.
L Should a lady hand her husband's card to
the servant at the same time she hands her
own? 2. What should oe done if tbeladycomes
to tbe door herself? 3. In calling upon two or
more ladies in one family shall I first inquire if
they are at home, or band tbe cards to the ser
vant, telling her tbe ladies' names whom I wish
to see? 4. If a gentleman and his wife have
called upon me shall I leave a card for the gen
tleman when I return the call?
1. Yes. 2, Greet her; certainly do not hand
her your cards. 3 It can make no difference
which you do. Mentioning tne names of the
ladles yon wish to see is equivalent to asking if
they are at borne. 4. Not necessary.
If I should call on a friend, and after a lapse
of time she tells me she will return my call,
specifying the week but not tbe day, and I
should not be at home when she calls, should it
be considered a call or should I wait for an
other call? SIrs. M. Jokes.
It should be considered a call.
BACHELOBS DESXEK PARTIES.
L At what age is it allowable for a young
gentleman to give a dinner party or bold a re
ception? 2. Is it necessary in giving a card
party to have some older person (s gentleman
or Lidy) receive them? 3. In giving a dinner
party what kind of invitation should you send,
cards or paper? Also manner of wording in
vitation? 4. May you seat jour guests where
you choose or can they select their on places?
6. In making your wedding call upon the bride
and groom are you expected to take off your
heavy coat, and should you carry your hat and
gloves with you in the reception room? G.
what kind of gloves should you wear? 7. At
a wedding reception must you take leave of
the bride and groom on going home, or the
host and hostess, or neither? & At what age
are young men allowed to enter society?
2. Gentlemen do not commonly give dinner
parties or hold receptions until they have set
up bachelor establishments. 2. Gentlemen
giving social entertainments in their apart
ments invite some elderly lady to receive their
lady guests. 3. Op either cards or note paper.
The usual wording is as follons: "Mr. Smith
requests tbe pleasure ot (here give the person's
name) company for dinner on Tuesday, March
II, at 6 o'clock. 4. The guests must be seated
by the host or hostess. The place of honor for
the chief lady guest is on the right
'hand of the host and for the chief gentle
man guest, the right hand of
' the hostess. Tbe second place is on the left
hand of tbe hostess and the left hand of the
host. The other guests are seated in a manner
most likely to be agreeable to them.
C. Take off your heavy coat, b'ut you may carry
your hat and gloves in your hand. 6. Any dark
color. 7. Take leave of your host and hostess;
and if the bride and groom are still present
take leave of them. 8. Any time after the ma
jority. There is no special rule in this matter
for men. ,
Will you kindly tell me what is the etiquette
of a parsonage marriage ? Should the bride
and groom go in the same carriage, and would
it be proper for any to go in tbe carriage with
them, cither to or from the parsonage?
Ellkk P. D.
If there is a bridal party they should go in
carriages in the same manner as if they went
to church. If bride and groom are accompa
nied by witnesses only it would be proper to go
In tbe same carriage.
PARTIES AND LUNCHEONS.
Mr. Smith and Mr. Jones, living at the board
ing bouse of Mrs. Brown, determined to give a
party. Sirs. Brown issues tbe invitations Tor
tbem In her name, accompanied bv the cards
of the young man. Where the ladies invited
are unacquainted with the hostess, should they
end their acceptance to her or to Messieurs
Smith and Jones ?
An acceptance in every case should be sent
to the person who issues the invitation.
L Is It good taste for a young unmarried wom
an to wear diamonds at anv time, especially
when simply receiving calls? 2. And is a dia
mond engagement ring consistent with good
taste? 3. What about borrowed jewelry?
L N o. 2. A diamond engagement ring is the
usual style. 3. Do not wear borrowed jewelry
unless under special circumstances. A young
lady, for instance, might wear a rare trinket
owned by ber grandmother. But ladies shonld
not wear one another's jewelry.
It you will be kind enough to give the de
tails of a "swell" luncheon in jour next Sun
day's issue you will very much oblige a reader
of your valuable paper.
There should be, about seven courses for a
well appointed luncheon. The following would
be a good menu: L Oysters on the half sheik
2. Bouillon, a Fish, boded with any sanco
you desire. 4. Broiled chicken with potatoes.
6. Roman punch, a Birds, either quail or
pannage, wun lettuce salad. 7. Ice cream in
Individual shapes, with cake and wine iellv.
'.follomed by fruit and bon-bons. .Black coffee.
A number of young people have organized
themselves' into a social club, which will hold
monthly meetings at tho homes of the several
members. Quite a number of its members
object to cards, others would enjoy dancing
but do not know how, and there are those that
enjoy both. 'Will you please suggest something
new that would take the place of both cards
and dancing for at least part of the evening in
which all could participate? 2. Would it be
out of place for the hostess to inform the
young gentlemen that she wishes each one to
escort a ladv to ber home, no matter how he
may regard her? 3. A young lady receives a
letter from a gentleman, requesting her tocor
respond;she does not care to do so, tbe gentle
man being merelv an acquaintance of a few
hours', standing. The lady does not wish to
appear rnde or unkind, yet has no inclination
to carry on a correspondence. What should
she do that would not cause offense?
The wonder is that people who not dance or
play should go into society; unless a person is
equipped for social entertainment, his place is
at home. In the absence of dancing and card
playing, all we can suggest is singing, palmis
try, recitations, mind reading, puzxle guessing,
charades and other games, in which hooks on
games, obtainable at any book store, will in
struction. 2. It would not. 3. A man who
asks a lady of a few hours' acquaintance with
him to correspond Is guilty of great presump
tion. It is little less than an insult. If the lady
in question is a young unmarried woman, it is
not proper for her to correspond with any male
acquaintance, unless he is a friend of long
standing, and well known to her family as well
as to herself. A plain, decisive negative shonld
be given to the man you refer to, whether he
considers it unkind or not.

'A Boy Hero"
Qbakd Opera House..
"Three of a Kind"
Academy op Music
The Night Owls"
The above are the theatrical attractions for
RosinaVokes and the company of uncom
monly good actors in her train achieved an ar
tistic if not quite a financial success at the
Grand Opera House last week. Miss Vokes is
an actress of attainments and natural genius
who almost stands alone among tho host of
half-trained soubrettes pushed to tbe front as
comediennes by enterprising managers of to
day. Comedy of tho best sort, the purest and
cleanest, and also the wittiest, needs a woman
like Miss Vokes to make it tell. The public
has been treated to such an almost unvarying
procession of broad farces, mostly of the ath
letic and pantomime trick order, interpreted
by young men and women with little but their
youth and physical boisterousness to recom
mend them, that comedy of tbe sort in which
Rosina Vokes shines bas been forgotten.
There are f ew exceptions, a few real comedies
of genuine artistic beauty, still on the stage,
notably that Very brilliant example "The Hen
rietta," which was seen here recently.
The Haytlan farce-Comedy is the rage, how
ever, and the legitimate comedy stands very
little chance of coining money. This seems to
have been Miss Vokes' experience. It is a
Still it is to Uo hoped that Miss Vokes will
play again in this city. If she does she will bo
sure to find that Pittsburg will treat her more
generously. The section of tbo public which
appreciates orthodox comedy is a little slow in
apprehension. It takes some little noise to
convince It that a comedy and a comedian
is the genuine article.
With the exception of the wonderful yacht
and the professional ourglars there is nothing
to recommend "Tbe Stowaway." It is, how
ever, to be regretted that some good actors
are implicated in the production of the play.
It has delighted the gallery at the Bijou, where
audiences have been rather top-heavy during
the u eek.
By the way, what a very unkind, not to say
cruel thing, it was of a certain critic to say
that ,-The Stowaway" is one of the best melo
dramas that Pittsburg has seen this season.
Yet this remark is not far from the truth, and
goes to show how Pittsburg suffers from im
ported and domestic rubbish called melo
drama. Mr. Morton Seltcn and Mr. Felix Morris,
particularly the latter, in the support of Miss
Vokes, did some excellent work at the Opera
House. When Miss Vokes comes this way
again we hope she will be accompanied by
both these gentlemen.
Mr. Henderson, tbe Manager of the Chicago
Opera House, and proprietor of "The Crystal
Slipper," engaged Captain Alfred Thompson to
write or help to write the libretto for next sum.
mer's piece at his theater. Since then there has
been a difficulty about this libretto, Mr. Hen
derson declining to accept what Captain
Thompson bad written. Mr. Henderson says
that the libretto isn't funny and isn't suited to
American tastes, and, in a letter to tbe
Dramatic Mirror this week, he quotes tho fol
lowing from Captain Thompson's work to sus
tain his don tent ion:
The play is entitled "The Blue Bashaw." The
scene is laid at Jamjellypoor, a town on the
River Gutterjumper. Ben Hoc, the father of
Fatima, has secured for his daughter the hand
of the Blue Bashaw.'
"It's a big thing for the family," he says, add
ing with a keen knowledge of American slang,
"and thero are not many fathers who could
have worked the growler so well,"
Selim, the young and araeut lover, enters with
"Say, myjad," cnes Sister Anne, "what are
you doing with the ladder?"
"1 am going to pick my teeth on my rounds,"
"So, you wretched old rounder," exclaims
Sister Anne, banging him with the ladder,
"we'll teach vou to come to this country."
"Will you bo so good as to withdraw to the
kitchen," says Selim, "and give me a chance to
gurgle my chants."
"Fly, Selim. fly," cries Fatlma.
"My daughter is too fly," remarks her father.
"My son-in-law's hair may be blue but his cash
is ready. That makes you yelUho, but you
mnst green and bear it."
Tho thanks of the great American public
who would have had to listen to such stuff as
this and a great deal more, are certainly due
to Mr. Henderson for rejecting "The Blue
It is not often that it Is possible to say of a
spectacular extravaganza such as "The Crystal
Slipper" that it contains lots of fun and points
beside beauties, for which tbe ballet and scenic
artist are responsible. Some weeks ago I saw
it at Chicago, and it impressed me as the best
thing of its kind I had ever seen.
Miss Nellie McHenry has returned to her
old love, "Three of a Kind," and the Pittsburg
public will probably show their appreciation of
her by giving her "a full house" every night.
And so the Hon. Billy Florence has fallen
into the prevailing habit and has announced
that he has ready a "knock-down and drag
ont" farce comedy in readiness, which he calls
by the classic and euphonious title "Working
the Growler." He hopes it will carry tbo
popular vote "by a large majority."
The days when a great star could travel all
over the country with a set of' sticks for sup
port and make a fortune Seem to he fleeting
fast. The example set by Joe Jefferson and
William Florence of gathering around them a
company as strong as it could possibly be
made will be followed largely, or the signs of
the times are misleading. Thus far tbe artists
seemed to support Messrs. Jefferson and Flor
ence include John Gilbert, C. W. Couldock
and Mrs. Drew.
Edwin Booth has secured Madame Modjeska
and two actors, whose names are at present
withheld, but who are-said to be of the first,
even star, rank, Hepbuen Johns.
This Week's Attractions.
"THE Crystal Slipper, or Prince Prettiwitz
and Littlo Cinderella," the Chicago Opera
House second annual spectacular extrava
ganza, will be presented for the first time In
Pittsburg at the Bijou Theater to-morrow
night, Apart from the many novel features
promised in this very popular extravaganza
the scenic accessories are said to be really
worth seeing. The first is called "The Cata
combs of She.'' The figures 'seen on he
gloomy caverns present striking likenesses of
prominent public characters, and the red glare
which comas from The Fire of Lite" casts an
uncanny glow over the somber picture. The
scene disappears and "The Market Place of
Pretzelstadt" Is revealed. It is full of light
and bustle. On either side are booths and
shons, for the townspeople have assembled to
celebrate the coming of age of Prince J'retti-u-ilz.
Here all tbe characters in tbo piece are
introduced. The Prince appears, surrounded
by the pages of tbe imperial court, and there is
a parade of the Pretzelstato muskatoers and a
dance of fools given for his "entertainment.

of "The Crystal Slipper," will lead the orches.
Thk star at Harris' Theater this week is one
of the youngest on the stage, but be is already
popular, particularly with juvenile audiences.
The Brooklyn Eagle says of the play: A new
star to this city appeared in a new play at the
Criterion Theater, yesterday afternoon and
evening. Tbe starts Martin Hayden, and the
play is "A Boy Heru." The play has consider
able merit, with a plot well unraveled, and cal
culated to hold tho spectators' attention
throughout. It tells the story of life on tho
Gulf coast In the stirring times before tbe war,
and the careful following of the struggles of a
noble young girl fighting against organized
Sersecution is a delicate piece of stage work.
Ir. Hayden plays the part of Jultan, and he
deserved all the applause that was accorded to
him by the audience. "A Boy Hero" is not a
star play, and the actors who appeared were
given much opportunity to display their his
trionic abilities. The staging of the play was
effective, and its mechanical features were
well worked out.
The star and tbe piece which will be at the
Grand Opera House this week is the person of
the popular artiste. Miss Nellie McHenry, in
"Three of a Kind." Tbe company and Nellie
McHenry havo won a legitimate reputation
throughout the entire country and are no
strangers In Pittsburg. The. St, Louis Dis
patch speaks as follows: "Nellie Mcilenryfllled
the stage at Pope's yesterday afternoon and
evening with her vivacity. Three of a Kind'
is full of absurdities, but it is also full of jol

of Mrs. Langtry. Her image appears in all the

Little Maequebtte Fish, who pliys Cin
derella In 'The Crystal Slipper," was formerly
known in this country as Baby Benson. She is
the smallest soubrette on tbe American stage.
As Baby Benson she commanded a salary of
$000 per week when only 8 years old.
It is a great many years since Helen Barry,
who dedicated the Union Square Theater on
Wednesday night, made ner professional debut
atCovent Garden, as Queen of the Amazons of
the Moon, in that extravagant failure, "Babil
and Bijou." Miss Barry would light up well as
a Queen of the Amazons to-day. She has the
dimensions for it.

"Mrs. Potter came in quietly on Tuesday night
and did Camille tor the first time she ap
peared at Harlem and all the critics were at
tbe Star Theater. Bnt I took an elevated train
and rushed up there for in act. In the gayer
scenes, which were the only scenes I saw, she
did the part very charmingly and looked very
dainty. Heaven knows how she did the rest."
Says Le Chat Noir: Agnes Booth weais
opera cloaks that will stand alone, they are so
important. There is no actress on the stage
who can enter more majestically, and get a
cloak off of ber shoulders and over the back of
a sofa more conspicuously, so that tbe specta
tor will be thoroughly aware of tbe great
beauty and value of that cloak. Fanny Daven
port is fair at this, but Mrs. Booth is the
Tax London correspondent of the Mirror
writes: An evening paper reporter has been
spreading himself on tho size of actresses'
waists. To begin with, I learn that Ellen Terry
being at the head of ber profession has one of
the largest waists therein, viz.. 28 inches. Miss
Eastlake is can credited" with a similar circum
ference, and I also readily believe it. Mrs.
Bernard Becre doesn't wear stays, and has a
waist of 27 inches, Mary Anderson's waist a
few years ago was 24U Inches. Now it is 26.
Dorothy Done has a 21-fnch waist. "She never
has anything after the play bnt a cup of hot
bouillon and biscuit, and gets 9 hours' sleep
out of every 24." Mary Rorke has a 23-inch
waist, but "Kate Vaughan has the smallest on
the stage." Twenty-one, I believe.
Miss Georgia Cayvax, the leading lady of
the New York Lyceum Theater, strikes the
critic of Le Chat Jfoir thus: The playwrights
around tbe Lyceum have gauged tbe pathetic
depths of their leading lady very finely, and
they know that to topple over tbe urns of her
great grief they must give her some soliloquies
about baby Harry, or little Blanche, my dar
ling child. And that Is ithere we boo-hoo with
out canng.who sees us. We let tbe tears trickle
down over the end of our noses and splash
against our shirt fronts, seeing not, heeding
not the dry eye of tho cynic, who writes criti
cisms for the papers, and never had a child.
It is fortunate that in tbis flippant age we at
least have one place where tears are kept on
draught. We are able now, when we meet a
friend who we know enjoys tills sort of thing,
to take blm by the arm and say: Come down to
the Lyceum, and bave some tears with me.

PICTURES AKD PAINTERS,
A New York Artist Whose Work 1 Weird
Striking and Original.
Mr. F. S. Church, of New York,is an art
ist who is becoming very widely known
and whose work indicates a weird
and peculiar, and at the same time striking
and original, line of thought. Mr. Church is
fond of bringing strong contrasts into his pict
ures. Gentleness and ferocity, mildness and
rage are oppositions which he frequently makes
use ot, as, for instance, a picture of a slender
and delicate female controlling and subduing
lions, by tbe power of music, and in the paint
ing Entitled, "An Interrupted Feast," where a
tiny bird is seen close to tbe jaws of a tiger en
gaged in gnawing a bone. 'The Viking's
Daughter'oneofthisartist's best known works,
depicts a fair young girl who may be taken as a
type of reflned American beauty.walking by the
shore, while seagulls fly close about her
neau as tnougn wnispenng secrets in ner er.
Porhaps the first of Mr. Church's works to be
seen in this city is 'The Requiem," shown in
Gillespie's window last week, and to those who
know of tbe reputation enjoyed by tbe artist
it will no doubt prove disappointing. This pict
ure, which can scarcely be considered as be
ing more tban a decorative panel, shows a
human skull with a bullet hole in the forehead,
half bidden among the grass and daisies.
Above tbe skull a robin is singing upon a slen
der twig, and tbis tiny spark of life over what
was once the borne of human thought and
power fills ono with a strange sadness and
melancholy, and impresses npon tbe beholder
forcibly tbe lesson of the briefness and frailty
of man's hold on life, and tne slight
change it makes when he lays himself down for
his final sleep. It Is to be regretted that the
technique of this picture falls so far below
what would be in Keeping with its spirit and
conception, as it unquestionably does. The
work 1$ bd in color and rough and careless in
handling, exhibiting some qualities character
istic of tbe school girl or amateur, rather than
A Fine Collection of Paintings.
It is the rule of late, rather than the excep
tion, that the Gillespie gallery is filled with
splendid paintings, either by home or foreign
artists. Tbe collection at present on exhibition
there is the property of Mr. M. Bleiman. of
Now York, and is a very Interesting one from
the fact that tbe pictures present a great
variety of subjects ana are nearly all works of
considerable merit, and would be recognized as
such without reference to tbe famous names
attached to many of them. With ono or two
exceptions these are works wbich will appeal
to tho intelligence of almost all educated and
refined persons, however limited their knowl
edge of tbe technique of painting. Among
the names wbich will attract immediate atten
tion may bo mentioned tbe following, though
the list does not comprise all that maybe
worthy of special mention: Heger, Charles
Jacqne, Trovon, Carot, Vibert, Adrlen Mor
eau, Haag, Leon Caillo and Perez. The list
might easily be extended, bnt the above are
sufficient to convey an idea of the character of
tbe exhibition, which is such that no one inter
ested in art can afford to miss seeing It. The
picture by Charles Jacque:is a particularly
clever work, and would of Itself amply repay
the trouble of a visit, while that by M. Heger
is a splendid piece of drawing and coloring,
such as is rarely seen in this vicinity.
This latter picture represents the inte
rior of a magnificent apartment with
elaborately carved and decorated walls and
ceiling. Through an arched opening in one of
tbe walls may be seen a portion of the room be
yond. This work is apparently faultless
throughout, and the manner In which the
effect of sunlight streaming in at tbe window
and falling npon tbe various objects has been
rendered indicates the most thorough knowl
edge and the touch of a master's hand.
Aronnd the Studios.
A SMALL sketch by Mr. D. Bj Walkley
is shown at Mayer's. The subject represents a
coast scene, probably In Holland, and consists
of a number of boats close to the shore and
near a cluster of small buildings, tbe whole
forming an effect in which the arrangement of
lines is very pleasing. The tone of color is
rather low and. gray, inclining almost to cold
ness, but is balanced well and is harmonious.
Mr. Clarence Johns is back at the gallery
again, looking about as usual, though he still
carries his head a little more stiffly than he was
wont to do. Several new pictures have been
added to the collection, among them a land
scape by Miss Olive Tnrney, which is certainly
one of the best works she has produced of late.
Since .whatever degree of adverse criticism
Miss Turney's paintings have called forth bas
been mainly directed against the quality of the
sky and atmospheric effect, it is worthy of re
mark that it is chiefly in these particulars that
she has outdone ber previous efforts.
These has been a question raised as to the
authenticity of many of the "old masters" be
longing to the Duke of D ureal, at present on
exhibition at the galleries of tbe American Art
Association in New York, and to be sold at
auction on the 8th and 9th ot next month. It
has even been claimed that many of them are
bare-faced libels on tbe schools of art, of which
they are held as representative. The question
Is an interesting one, particularly to picture
buyers, but surely if many of them are spurious
"old masters" tbe fact will soon be established
through their exhibition in such a city as New
York. As tbe titled owner of these works ex
pects to realize over $1,000,000 by their sale, it
will be just as well for American buyers to
make certain that they are getting what they
pay for before they part with the cash.
The means and processes of artistic expres
sion are almost invariably very simple, and at
the command of nearly everyone however situ
ated. It is tile ideas expressed that give value
to the work and they, of course, depend upon
the talent of tho individual who produced it.
A method of producing designs in decorative
art which finds considerable favor abroad con
sists simply in taking advantage of the possi
bility of making depressions in soft wood by
means of pressure. The design is usually
traced upon the wood with a tool and by using
sufficient force to produce a clearly defined
outline. The wood between the lines of tbe
pattern is then beaten down by means of small
punches, and, if desired, may bo slightly
stained, which brings tbe design ont in bold re
lief. Brackets, pa j els, small chests, etc, may
be thus simply and very eff ecti ely ornamented,
with little or no cost but tbe labor, which will
bo found to be so interesting that it 13 its own
The method of decorating interior walls by
use of stenciled designs is by no means new,
but it is probable that its field of usefulness
will before long bo greatly extended and the
character of the work very much improved.
Like most other methods its effectiveness de
pends largely upon the skill and judgment
with which It Is applied. With proper knowl
edge of the requirements In design it is com
paratively easy to produce by this means the
effect of a free play of hrushwork In a single
fiat tint of color. The failures wbich often re
sult from attempts to apply this or any other
method of decoration are commonly due to the
endeavor to make use of designs unsuited to
the method and to produce effects be) ond the
scope or opposed to the spirit of the process.
Any severe designs in which the interruptions
of continuity caused by the blanks left by tbe
stencil plates would attract too mnch atten
tion should be avoided, but a graceful flowing
pattern composed of disconnected forms fol
lowing a regular order is often found to be
both pleasing andeffectlve.

The Only Colored. Post In Plttsbnrg.
Post No. 206, of this city, of which John H.
Adloy is Commander, enjoys the distinction of
being tho only colored post of the Grand Army
of the Republic located in tbe two cities. Tbe
work of the post this year has been fraught
with success, and it is rapidly coming to tbe
front as an active and prosperous post of the
Pennsylvania department. The entertainment
recently held at the Fifth Avenue Market
House under the auspices of tbe post, assisted
by the auxiliary society of ladies, was well pa
tronized by the Grand Army men of both cures,
and the result was a financial success. The
expense of tlje entertainment was 562 85. and
the net gain was SsO 83, of which amount $70 OU
was promptly deposited in a savings bank to the
credit of tbe post, being tbe first time in its
history that a bank account was enjoyed. The
comrades of the post fully appreciate the assist
ance and attention it is receiving from other
Grand Army Posts in the vicinity, and Com

and variety of dishes. Mr. Robert Blaze, Miss

engrossed the attention of tbe many visitors.
Tbnrsday and Friday the Park and Bloom
field schools were beseiged with visitors. The

Parents when they visit tbe schools on these
"public days" can hardly credit that their own
little toddlers can do the fine writing attributed
to them so different from the days when they
went to school.
Last Friday at the Bloomfleld school, in one
of tbe lower rooms, one individual expressed
his wonder at the writing on tbe board of tbe
little folks. One pupil's writing especially he
thought it impossible for a child to do, so he
asked if tbe boy might write a sentence on tho
board for him. The teacher smilingly erased
all the work on tbe board, brought up the
same class and had them all write over again.
Creditable judges said the latter writing was
supenpr to the former.
