Elgin watch with suitable chain. Thu
presentation was made by Mr. Thos.
Morgan In a fuw timely and happy re
marks, complimentary to Mr. Wallace on
tho good iccling existing between him
self and thu men In Ids department. Mr.
Wallace was taken completly by sur
prise, yet thanked "the boys" very
kindly for their remcmberaucu of him.
I In said although he had eaten 110 break
last that morning, nor Indulged In any
"Christmas" whatever, he wn, never
theless, "to full for utterance," and de
sired to be excused lrom attempting any
thing like a speech.
One of the pleataiitcst allairs of the
season was that whlcji came off nt the
German School on fourteenth street,
Prof, Appc), principal, 011 Christmas
evening. The school room was hand
somely decorated wijli evergreen nud
mistletoe, while two beautiful Christmas
trees, one on either Mde of the ttage,
were prepared for th edification of the
children of thu school. The exercises
consisted in music, vocal and
Instrumental, declamations and dialogues,
essays, gymnastic performances, etc.
There was a very large crowd present,
and at the conclusion of exercises, when
the presents were distributed, there was
a high time among the scholars. The
affair was a pleasant one, and will not
soon be forgotten by the tckolars of the
school. Prof. Appel deserves, and no
doubt has, the thanks of the patrons of
the German school for the energy and
perseverance and unceasing labor with
which he conducts its affairs.
Thnt there ought to be an ordinance
prohibiting the shooting of guns and pis
tols within the city limits on holidays,
seems to he almost universally agreed to,
and the city council will doubtless be
asked to pats such au ordinance. Last

of such an ordinance. On that day no
fewer than four boys were moro or less
seriously hurt by the accidental discharge
or careless handling of pistols. A sou of
Mr. John Tanner, the grocer, on Wash
ington ayenuc, between Tenth
and Eleventh street, was shot in
the breast .by the accidental dis
charge of a pistol In tho hands
of a playmate, mid for a while it was
thougiit the little fellow could not re
cover. Wo arc glad to state, however,
that he Is doing well, and that lie is now
considered out of danger. A little son of
Mr. 11 1 rain Williamson received a slight
wound in the hand; another boy, son
of Mr. Hiram Hill, is reported to have
had one or his eyes put out ; and another
boy named Herbert, residing at the cor
ner ot Washington avenue and Twenty
first street, was severely burned about
the head and face. The pasage of an or
dinance prohibiting the use of fire-arms
would prevent such accidents hi the fu
ture. Let ui have the ordinance.
The Selden Irwlu theatrical combina
tion gave their opening entertainment ut
the Atlieueum ou Saturday evening, to
one of the largest, most select ami appre
ciative audiences that ever assembled in
tills city on a similar occasion. The play,
Augustiu Daly's great society novelty,
entitled "Big Bonanza," together with
the well-known ability of the Selden Ir
win troupe to render the play as It should
be rendered, was tho causes which in
duced uth n large number
of persons to "turn out."
Wc cannot undertake to particularize as
to the merits and demerits of the charac

to be content with sayiug that the play
was. as a whole, rendered in a manner
highly creditable to the members
of the combination, and to the satis B
faction and delight of the audience. Last

all well sustained ; the manner in which
the play in its every detail was given be

this city for years. To-night the society

As au evidence of what energy, tier-

The proprietors are both young men,
but wo venture to say have become as
widely known during the lew mouths
they have done business here ns any of
our older merchants. To fully appre
ciate how large their patronage has
grown, it is necessary to spend a half
hour in their store ut any time of day ou
any day of the week. Clerks and pro
prietors llnd no time for rest. These
gentlemen started out, taking "rock bot
tom" prices for their motto, and a pres
ent of a calico dress with every seven dol
lars worth of goods sold. Knowing
their plan would bo understood and re
warded, they at oncosetto work through
the newspapers and by posters to make
it known to the people, and tho result
has overreached their highest an
ticipation. They possess another
great advantage In haying

may call for ut low prices, while their

AT HER AOAIlf.
'Centeanlnl" Answers Mrs. . J, B
mm wives Her n Hntlier Bovera
Caiko, December 27, 1S75.
Mit. Editou Tho last remarkable effu
sion from the pen of Mrs. S. J. S. is one
which nothing short or a well-developed,
scientific brain will ever bo able to rathom,
if Indeed It can be fathomed nt all. It
reminds mc very forcibly of Mark
Twain's llrst Interview Willi Attcmus
Ward, in which A r tenuis said to Twain :
'You know tho vein, tho ledge, tho thing
that contains the metal, whereby It con
stitutes the medium between all other
forces, whether of present or remote
agencies, so brought to bear in favor ol
the former against the latter, or the latter
against tho former, or nil, or both, or
comprising the relative dlflercncu exist'
'ng within the radius whence culminate
tho several degrees of similarity to
Twain was of course puzzled to get nt
the polntof that scutcncc, although he had
no doubt but that it had a point Just so
my condition after reading Mrs. S. J. S's
vagtio communication. It has n point,
no doubt, but I fall to discover It. She
begins by calling your humble corrcs
pondent all kinds' of "airy nothings,'
Which Isn't kind in her, to say nothing
of tho lack of courtesy. I quote : "A
weaker efl'ort at retort or a poorer 1ow
for a defense could scarcely have been
force to bear with' tto'lMV"1!
that to which you wcro driven when you
attempted to use the weapon of your ad
versary, which that adversary had
already hurled at you with an unerring
hand, und made it do full execution in its
descent upon you." In clearness of point,
that is a successful rival to the sentence
quoted from Artcmus Ward. What ad
versary? Mrs. S. J. S. Is (fortunately)
the only adversary the Centennial Asso
ciation has In Cairo she has hurled her
would-be pen-crushers at us, but they
have effected us about as much as It dis
turbs a duck to pour water on its back,
and it Is merely egotism on her part, to
suppose she Ins done such execution as
she speaks of. While asserting that my
letter was of the Fuzz Ball description,
she tacitly disproves It, by the space she
occupies in reply to it. You can always
determine "the effectiveness or the aim
by the lhittcrlug of the birds," and the
shower of feathers in tho Gazelle, shows
plainly that the bird is wounded.
She then babbles ol cook books some
thing which we as a society have nothing
to do with, but. vthlch 1 would recom
mend her to study, in a manner that is
suggestive or the thought that her Christ
mas dinner must have been a failure,
and left her reeling cross and envious or
those ladies who hud studied their cook
books to some purpose. Then she brings
up the golplng subject again. Well, I
can only stand by what I have already
said that the worst gossips that I have
ever known, were women who were so
narrow-minded they did not approve or
and would not assist with anything out
side or their owu families. Mrs. S. J. S
evidently belongs to the class of pcrpct
ual fault-finders. Docs any one know of
anything she does approve of, saving her
own attempts at sarcasm A town com'
posed of such people would soon have
Its streets overgrown with gras and it
population in a kind of lethargy. It
takes such people as the Cenlcnul.il
workers to compose a thriving, go a-
lieadative city. They don't sit down ami
grumble because people don't do this,
or don't do that, but get up ami helji till
the world with life and energy. (That
is modest (';) enough to emanate from
Mrs. S. J. S. herself.)
The honcst-penuy affair seems to dis
turb the lady more than tiny tiling else,
though why it should is more than I
can penetrate, for I warrant that her
pennies never go to assist in any public
enterprise. The pleasure given we con
slder a fair exchauge for the money we
charge tor our entertainment. Just tho
inini na It la for all other societies. No
one Is eouspelWd to patronle them,
at lemit wu usver try to bring-either men
tal or physical pressures to hear upon
people, to force them Into our society.
Our husbands do (with a generosity won
derful to Mrs. S. J. S.), allow us to use
butter, sugar, &c, to make cakes, nud
even furnish us witli money to buy other
eatables for our tea parties. What then ?
Docs Mrs. S. J. S. want such proillgaey
stopped? Had'nt she better apply to the
cottncllmen, and have them pass an ordi
nance prohibiting wives from getting
their money out of their owu husbands'
pockets? It seems to bo gall nud worm
wood to her, that men are so foolish ns to
give money to their wives for anything
but the bare necessities of life ; yet in
spite ot all her bitter feelings, men will
probably go ou being liberal to them as
long as time shall last.
Wheu Mrs. S. J. S. begins to cam tier
own nickels, 1 would ndvlse her to take
up the lite insurance business ; sho takes
so naturally to tho "policy" theme, giv
ing us a dose of it in all of her letters,
though it Is so wrapped up or sugar
coated In mysteries, that wo fall to dis
cover whether it is intended for an emetic
or a kind ot soothing lyrup.
She wants to know it our association
have "a sly project ou foot to convey the
uonen ot some AttUnguUhod oroue, in
nil their ghastly ugliness, to Philadelphia,
to h rnr on ovlllhltlon. for Ilia jiurixwu
of raising a fund to pay oil the uewleveo
debt?" Wo haven't fully decided what
we will put 011 exhibition yet, but if we
