THE COLUMBIA BICYCLE CAL
ENDAR FOR 18S7.
The Columbia Bicycle Calendar
for '87, just issued by the Pope
Manufacturing comnauy of Boston,
is a truly artistic aud elegant work
in chromo-lithography aud the let
terpress. Each day of the year
appears upou a seperate slip with
a quotation pertaining to 'cycling
from leading publications aud pro
minent personages. The notable
'cycling events are given ; aud con
cise opinions of the highest medi
cal authorities; words from practi
cal weeelmen, iuclnding clergymen
and other professional gentlemen ;
the rights of 'cyclers upon the
roads ; general wheel statistics; the
benefits of tricycling for ladies ; ex
tracts from 'cycling poems; and
much other information interesting
alike to the 'cycler and to the gen
eral reader. In fact it is in nr ma
ture a virtual encyclopedia upon
this universally utilized modern
The calendar proper is mounted
upon a bacK of heavy board, upon
which is exquisitely executed in oil
color effect, by G. H. Buek of New
York, an allegorical scene, repre
senting the earth resting among
the clouds, with Thomas Stephens,
in heroic size, mounted upon his
Columbia bicycle, circumbicycliug
the globe. The atmospheric lights
aud shades of sunlight and moon
shine are charmingly vivid, yet ar
tistically toned and softened. A
smaller portion of the board is
devoted to a picture of a moan ted
lady tricycler, speeding over a
pleasant country road. As work
of convenient art, the Columbia
Calendar is worthy of a rjlace in
office, library or parlor.
. A talk with Mrs. John Taylor,
immediately after a report of the
burglary and robbery of their resi
dence No. 203, Virginia Avenue,
s. w., ou Mouday night last, would
show, that you might not include
all the world in the suspicion be
fore the thief is found ; not even
necessarily the " colored sneak
thief." For the situation of the
house, aud circumstance that sur
rounded the whole transactions,
showed that the thief not only
knew the range of the house, but
the whereabouts of the family on
that evening, and was too, on inti
mate terms with a large and dan
gerous looking dog that was lock
ed un in the dining room down in
the basement, through which the
burglar went up into the house
from which he took $27, in mon
ey, and two suits of clothes.
Mr, John Taylor was away at the
hotel, where he goes on duty at 9
o'clock , Mrs. Taylor, aud her sister

LOUISE TO CLARA.
Dear Clara: I sDall discuss
with you this week the colored
pulpit. Now, really tell me what
do you think of the cole red pul
pit? I have often thought it
would be a good idea to discuss a
few of these sermous sometime in
the Household. Mr. Richardson's
paper before the Philomathian
society a few weeks ago elicited
the grea'est applause. In consid
ering the pulpit, he thought that
these blood and thunder sermons
should be dispensed with Of
course I agree with him. Across
the street there is a Methodist
minister, the poor fellow has about
loal his lungs. He is a good man
but I tell bu Clara his eccentric
ities and other non sensical actionb
have caused him to lose his
health. There goes Hany Black,
I understand that he has got re
ligion now. In conversation with
him a few days ago, he informed
me that his religion was purely
theatrical; that the colored pulpit
reminded him of a boy that was
raised by his father. What that
was I am unable to tell. I sup
pose Harry can inform you. Mr.
Richardson in his paper presented
some fine points, and the weak at
tempt at answering it by Rev.
Welch was very nm using. The
argument of Rev. Welch was
based upon the actions of the old
school. One would presume the
gentleman was aii old school min
ister. Indeed dear Clara, his ar
gument lead me to suh a couclu
siou. Revs, Anderson and John-
sun are men of progressive ideas,
perhaps they have a different idea
of hell and heaven from Rev.
Welch. Their argument about
fire aud brimstone is stated as a
fact, but I suppose Rev. AVeleh
would give it to us straight. The
pu pic can be improved. It is
about time for all old school min
isters to retire. Understand me
now, I don't mean because a min-
ister is old. in age, out I mem
those men who still preach hell
and brimstone, and excitable
declarations without sense or rea
son. The pulpit can do a great
deal in advancing the race, but it
will never be able to do anything
so long as we have these block
heads in the lead.
of Miss Lulie E. Ford to Mr. Geo.
W. Jackson was consummated
last Wednesday evening at the
residence of the bride's parents.
The affair was very quiet on ac
count of the death of dear
George's father, who died at home
in the west two weeks ago. Lulie
looked really sweet aud George
was a piece of perfection. You
know 1 was smitten with him my
self, but Lulie was the choice of
his affections, heuce 1 was left in
despair. Lulie was the baby of
all her folks. She has been raised
tenderly and with care. Indeed
I loved her as a sister and often I
have listened to her sweet voice,
which was as enchanting as the
siren's song. Her wedding trous
seau was handsome. It was the
gift ot her brother Robert whose
pitiful eyes streamed tears ou the
partiug of his sister from home.
How sad it is to lose those we love,
even when they are united in
marriage. Of course there were
only a few of her immediate
friends present to wish her a long
life and many days of marriage
happiness. Mr. Jackson is a
young man and haa a host of
rrit-nds who were not able to
be present sent a token of their
regards. The bride's and groom's
cakes were the center of attraction,
of which we all freely partook.
Maud informed me that she had a
pleasant dream of the one to
whom she is engaged. I am in
clined to believe that if he doesn't
make up his mind soon, I am
thinking some one will be looked
over. I saw in the Bee la3t week
reference made to the lady of the
I have an idea who it is. There
is something that our mutual
friend desires to accomplish and
in doing so an attempt was made
to get rid of one of the finest la
dies in our school. I am pleased
to know that Mr. Cook came to
her rescue. It is well that we
should keep a watchful eye of our
surroundings and eveu watch
those who pretend to love us most.
A great deal of interest is 'mani
fested in the H useholcl relative
to Mr. Matthews' confirmation.
I can assure you that we all ate
I desire to state to the House
