ruus iu the first on singles by Peuder,
r^atlford aud Turner nud Hull's error.
?} he uext three innings added uothiug
to their BCOte, ulthough iu the third it
looked as if the "t bawptous" would
increase their lead by the addition of
two tuore ruus, but sharp tieldiug on
thu part of Cuptuiu "Bobby" Childs'
tueu prevented this catastrophe, aud
uuce more those interested breathed
easily,
The third mump was productive of
one ruu for the Portsmouth^ by two
dbases ou balls, a hit by Hargrove and
31allinau's saonlice. In the lourth the
(treeu legged chaps tied the score ou a
Single, a double aud a tieidcr's choice.
"1 hero was no noise, then, oh, no' you
couldn't begiu to hear what the umpire
said, so loud wa? the uproar. It

a long explanation to the Statu 1 ><>
pautmeut with reference to oveuts con

previously failed to report, thereby
causing dissatisfaction iu otlicial cir?
cles,
Mr. Deuby Lad maintained so long a
silence dospijo tue auxioty of tho Do
partmout to hoar from him iu regard
to these matters, that it was deter
miued to cable him a synopsis of the
newspaper roports cabled from China
in regard to alleged Cbiuoso attompts
to prevent a full inquiry by tho Ameri?
can and British t.owniiitiouors into
the uiassnorea reported, This was
doue aud Mr, Deuby was requested to
slate whethor tbobo roports were true.
While tho wording of the oahlograui
thus seut can hardly bo deemed a do
maud for au expluualiou, according to
tho interpretation given it at the State
department to day, the fact that it was
scut Continus tho statements published
that Mr. Deuby'e long bilouoo was
causing dissatisfaction. On the whole
tho auswar of the uiiuitder shown thut
ho was diligent in tho poriormauce of
duty, and tho explanation of his hilouce
appears to he that he did not doetu
some of tho information iu bis posses?
sion sutJioiently important to cable.
To-day the Department received tho
dispatchos from Mr. Deuby, dated
August. 27, in which bo states thut Mr. I

Lead trimmings mo ijuin? expensive, it
is voll to know thut there may bo got?

Sntiu ribbon is morn generally seen
than either volvot or grosgrniu, and tho
reasons for its popularity are not only
that it tics easier, but that it contrasts
morn effectively with the fabric proper.
Stripes and plaids in silk uro fancied

?.:-!.<-. fui Walking. I
It appears that Newport society girls
have formulated a rule for graceful
walking, whioh pedestrians will plenso
copy if they wish to get on in this
world. An intelligent writer thus do
Bcribcs this stop: "One of the oordinal
points," she says, "is that the advanc?
ing foot should bo placed a long way
ahead of the other, so its to make a very
long stop, almost a stride, and to keep
this stride graceful the foot that is left
behind lifts itself to the tue and takes it
right angle swing. The toe must always
be set down first, ur the body will sink
too heavily nt each, like tiie step of a
fat woman. The pointed toed shoe is
preferred if long enough, a* it cuts tho
air and lends elasticity to tho foot."
There! This is uncommon sense, but
tho Newport pedestrian always walks
just that way. Tiuueforo lot every girl
who can forsake her wheel king enough
to wulk nt all try it. She will feel she
is in Ihn swim right off, for Miss Amy
Bend and Miss JuUu Grant, besides half
ti do/en other fair ones now doing this
swan step uct, are declared to bo "beau?
tiful walkers."?Boston Herald.

The unio.no und impressive oerotnouy
incident to seating a mau iu tint bardic
chair took place the other night in Che

Williams of Liverpool, whose burdio
name is "Pedroj " His poem on'Tlup
piuoss" was given the prize at tho ro
i>ont National eisteddfod of Wales, ut
which yd poets contested.
A peculiar foaturo of these Welsh
prize compositions is the fact that each
piece must have J I different, meters and .
possess tbo trim poetic sentiment. Mr.
Williams was successful, but at tbo time
of his victory ho was iu this country, |
and hence was unable to bo placed in !
the baidic chair with the ceremony ?
which is attached to this uctiou of the
National eisteddfod. Because of his
presence In this country the Welsh litte?
rateurs of that section resolved to per?
form tbo ceremony.
The seating of tbo bard la u bcantiful
ceremony. Tbo adjutors, tbreo in num?
ber, declare who the successful competi?
tor in, und then the arch druirl selects
two of tbo poets present und commands
them to bring forward tho successful
bard. He commands tho poet tobe seat?
ed in a magnificent oak chair manufac?
tured for this purpose Then tho pout is
commanded to rise und tho arch drnid
unsheathes his sword over tho poet's
heud, and in n solutions' voice asks Uio
multitude threo times in saccoBsiou "if
peace reigns supreme." J
Tho multitude answers in the affirm?
ative, ami the arch drnid declares him
the poet laureate of bis nutiun for one
year and one day. Following this cere?
mony each in turn congratulated tho
victor poet in impromptu verses.?Phil

Tho up to date girl, says tho New

sure, and it diuiuJ.es about her neck
from a long, slender chain, but it is of
locket pattern, and within it are a like?
ness and tho lock of hair?presumably
of her sweetheart. Tho hearts are about
an inch and a half long and uppoar in
all grades of ozpeusiveneas. Sometimes
they aro of richly chased gold sot with
precious stones, but again they aro sim?
ply of frosted silver. Thoy are known
us "Trilby hearts."
