The scoro at the end of thegame,

Every lawmaker who participated In
the game realizes today that Dame Nat

That "stooping" which featured the
game, started shortly btforo 4 o'clock,
as ,the Marine Band struck up, "Every
body's Doln' It Now," and Walter John
son, twirler extraordinary, called "Play
ball." This remark and others on the
part .of Umpire Johnson caused a rem
iniscent smile to hover over the face of
Uncle Joe. Ho remembered when he
with the gavel umpired and commanded
the two aggregations before him.
"Oh! watch them bending," was the
first chorus from the feminine fans In
the grandstand as . tho two teams of
lawmakers started the combat. From
that tlmo until the end of the game tho
expression mingled with the strains of
the band as portly, pompous paunches,
collected in the political wards "back

for the ball.

Dignity of Bishop
No Longer Respected
Tho waning glories of our bishopries
aro llb'strattd only In ih'ilr palaces..
In the nineteenth century old Arch
bishop Harcourt of York still drove
about the country In u coach and six,
though the humble pair was goot
enough for his wife, und Hawley, Arch
bishop of Canterbury, used to be escort
ed from Lamberth Chapel by servants"
carrying flambeaux. When Lord Chief
Justice Coleridge's father was at the
bar he wished to obtain some appoint
ment within the archbishop's patronage.
He consulted a friend, who, after advis
ing him, concluded: "And remember
in writing your letter that his grato can
only be approached on gilt-edged pa
per." Further evidence of the old dignity
of the bishops and archbishops is pro
vided in a letter written by Mr. Glad
stone on an occasion when he had In
advertently gone away from a dinner
party at which the Prince of Wales had
been before the latter had left. He
apologized for having done so and
added: "In my early days not only did
the whole company remain united, If a
member of the royal family were pres
ent, until tho exalted personage had de
parted, but I well recollect the applica
tion of the same rule In the cast of
Archbishop Howley of Canterbury."
Society circles In Washington oro
stirred by tho announcement .that
Mrs. Nellie Grant Sartols, only
daughter of President Ulysses S.
Grant, is engaged to be married to
Frank H. Jopes, who was Assistant
Postmaster General during Cleve
land's second administration. ' -
Mrs. Sartdls Is well known Jn the
Capital, not only In the residential
society. In which she was an itctlvc
and popular flguro some thirty, years
ago, but In official society circles, to
which she has btcn a visitor the paBt
ten years. Mr. Jdnes Is also well
remembered In the city, although hltf
official life was brief. He Is now sec
retary of a Chicago bank.
Miss Nellie Wrcnshnll Grant becamo

Snrtorls, an English army officer, in
the White House, May 21. 1874. Tho

IN BRITISH POWER
Courtesy, Declares London
Truth, Has for Ages Ac
Tho King recently criticised tho man
ners of Englishmen and suggested that
It would be a good thing to Include tho
Inculcation of co'urtesy In tho curricula
of schools. Immediately ovoryono re
made the discovery that Englishmen nro
not patterns of politeness; and they be
gan to deprecato It, and say what a pity
It is, and what could bo done to alter
It 7 And, as a matter of fuct. there aro
few thlngB on which the Englishman
prides himself more than his rudeness.
Courtesy has In nil ages accompanied
downfall, uays London Truth. Tho
gentlemen und gentlewomen of today
are proverbially at a great dlsndvuntago
whenever economic conditions bring
them Into contact with tho uneducated.
Noblesse oblige has ruined mote persons
than unwise speculation. France has a
name for courtesy, so has Italy, so has
Spain. Gormany and England and Amer
ica each has a special brnnd of bad
mannprs. Compare the stiiUin of these
two groups ot countries. Napoleon .had
very bad manners So had the great
Goths. Europe had reached a pitch of
the highest civilization, and then he
barbarian' hordes swept over it and
washed awav all the traditional weak
nesses. Bismarck was so renowned for
bad manners that when ho jostle(l the
Papal Nuncio, and then merely jsnld,
"I'm Bismarck!" the Nuncio replied:
''If that s not an apology, nt least It Is
a perfect explanation."
There aro two reason for having bad
manners. These are weakness and
strength. Weakness we put In prison,
and strength we call the eccentricity of
genius. 8o we have a Jungle and a zoo,
with the self same beasts In both; but
our relations to the two ate singularly
different. Paris was once a Jungle, and
St. Helena a zoo; but In between came
Elba, which taught us again the advis
ability of preventing any contact point.
The Wykhamlst motto says that
"Manners Makyth Jtfnn." It is quite
wrong. H Is Insult which provs a man
Is mado. Servants work, themselves to
"tho bono for a master or mistress who
treats them llko tho dirt dn tho muddy

Knglisnman, nut inqy servo nim, niia
ho kntJws It. It is not all a ma.tter' of
money; It Is largely his supreme nnd
unsullied Insolence which takes him
everywhere. No other nation can go all
ovor the Vorld. to tho remotest spots,
even to plaoos to which you, cannot get
k ticket nt Cook's, without knowing a
word of any languago but his own, and
como hack, without turning it hair.
This the Englishman does systemati
cally nnd every wfiok. Ho will con
descend to learn a few native oaths In
each country, but that Is nil. It springs
from his sense of power, and ho would
consider It a sign of weakness to abate
one Jot the rigor of his wintry behavior.

something fibrous In them which does
not for a moment excuse them, "Tint

be, for tlicv preach the creed of all the
gentler virtues. So we associate them
with teacups and rarpot slippers; and 1
hav heard nn Englishman tell a curate,
by way of a supremo compliment, that
In talking to him It was quite easy to
forgot he was a clergyman at all. The
mildest, gentlest, best of all men in the
history of tho world was despised and
looked upon ns weak and a fanatic.
Possession nnd dominion, physical, in
tellectual, national, make for brutality;
for a curt carding of the way through
obstacles, and getting to the point with
the least beating about the bust.
Resignation may be polite, hut until
a fresh horde of Goths sweep England
off the perch to which she has cllmbca

In all ages the gentleman has been
