SUNDAY WITH THE ANIMALS
Pleasures of a Tour iu the Zoo's
Lions, Uenrs and Birds That .Enter
tain Citizens nnd Strangers Allko
In the Beautiful Suburb.
At this season of the year one of the
most, if not the greatest, popular Sunday
resorts in and around Washington is the
Rational Zoological Park. When one has
spent an afternoon In this picturesque spot
and seen all of its natural beauty, he can
then understand, and not until then, the
attraction it has for the hundreds of peo
ple who visit it every day.
Here are to be found cool and restful
shades, nature iu allits rugged gloiy, wa'ks
which entwine -themselves in every direc
tion, now crossing a rapid running stream,
tumbling over the ragged rocks, again be
neath the dense shades of overhanging
trees, leading again to tlie houses of the
animals, the chief attractions of the Zoo.
In this paradise of nature are gathered
specimens of every kind of animals and
rcfttilcs fouud .on this continent at the
A t the very entrance of the jiark, almo-st
concealed by the overhanging roeks, are
the bear pits containing many varieties
of Bruin j'Jlcro the large grizzly, with
his heavy fiame, crossing and recrossing
his narrow confines, seemingly waiting
for an opportunity to escape. The other
bears seem tojjc more contented in their
captivity, piobauly preferring this exist
ence, with its peanuts. and cakes, to the
uncertainty of forest lire.
After ciossing Kock Creek and ascend
ing a short hill, one arrUes at the main
animal house, with its pandemonium of
yells and shrieks. As if to guard the
weaker animal located here, cages with
lions, tigers and Tour Jeopards surround
the quaiters. After passing ttie.se un
willing MMitlnels, the visitoi enters the
main hall, where his gaze meets a lame
boa-constrictor, a very sleepy Cerebus
indeed. To the sightseer from the North,
the alligators prove most interesting with
their clothes-pin Jaws and bullet eyes
Among the most recent additions to tlie
main collection are two West India seals
brought from the waters of the Gulf of
Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. Thee
water dogs arc said to be the first now in
captivity, and the park Is to be congratu
lated on securing buch splendid specimens
of a fast disappearing race. 1'iobably the
most interesting of all animals to the chil
dren as well as to those of mature jears,
are the monkeys. After watching them
it does not take much temptation to be
lieve, from their very human mannerisms.
In the Darwinian theory There in a corner
sits the old father, looking around In his
solemn and complacent manner, und ap
pearing very much disgruntled when one
of the' younger generation gives his tail
a tweek In play.
Passing on one encounters the horror
inspiring snakes, their forked tongue
playing like chain lightning, is very apt
to inspire vhltors with a desire to turn
attention to the gaily plumaged parrot-,
yelling and shileking en every conceiv
able occasion. It has been said by one
of the keepers that to enter this honce by
night Is to feel cold chills at every turn.
Every creature in the building, capable
of so doing, sets up a feaiful howl, and
their gieen eyes shine like glistening balls
or fire and give tjie intruder a veiy
The animals in the outhouses -are not
to be neglected Injra de-:ciiptIon of the
Zoo. They are one of the most interest
ing features.' Scattered in every direc
tion are cages, sheds, pits, etc , and In
them raie and valuable specimens. Here
in his solitary dwelling is the barred owl
looking ab solemn as a Judge, while h!.-
near neighbor, the stately iaven, brings
promptly to mind the bird Edgar Allen
I'oe saw seated upon the pallid bust of
Pallas To the right is the sleeping ground
hog, resting as contentedly as a prosper
ous real estate ageut Then there is the
red tailed hawk, wJth his sharp, cruel
eyes and nervous actions, reminding one
of a baffled felon. And the great homed
owls with their profound gravity bearing
a close resemblance to the grim humor
of a barn storming comic opeia star.
A little way beyond the black bears
were enjoying themselves In the lazy and
contented manner which says plainer than
all else that "summer is here." Then, by
crossing the road, the elephant house is
reached. Here Is that grand old fellow
"Dunk" and his mate, "Little Golddust;"
who, the keepers say, Is the mast dangerous
animal In the Zoo. Across the way is the
ostrich farm with one solltaiy bird stalk
ing up and down like a grim sentinel who
must turn neither to the right nor left.
TheD the raccoons, the elks, with their
velvet-covered antlers; the deers, the buf
faloes, the lamas, the badgers, the beau
tiful specimens of domesticated dogs and
hounds, spending their lives peacefully
within sight of the cowardly coyotes and
wolves. Antramldst this tribe, the very
picture of self-satisfaction, sits the solid
hoofed hog, wondering what it all means.
And so the visitor goes from cage to cage,
meeting new and interesting subjects at
every hand and when he finally leaves he
lias probably not seen half of the 500
animals In the enclosure, has probably not
been over a tenth of the 1G4 beautiful

DRAMA FOR OLD SOLDIERS.
Pleasing Renditions at the Soldiers'
Home Given by Amateur Actors.
The National players gave their last per
formance of the season at Soldiers' Home
Friday, May 21. The theater was packed
by an entlipsiatic audience, composed of
friends of the club and inmates of the Home.
The evening's entertainment consisted
of two plays, "Chums" and "The
Major," the latter being a clever little
comedietta by Mr. William Clabaugh, a
member of the club. The play is bright
and lively and bilngs out well the talents
of the author. Those who participated in
the play filled capably the parts assigned
them. Thetrumphof theeveniug.howevjr,
was the rendition of "Chums."
Those who took part in the plays were
Miss Agnes Vassar, Miss Ee&sic Stewart,
Mr Marx A. Kahn, Mr William Clabaugh,
aud Mr. Ed. E. Muth.
During the Intermission between the
plays the band rendered various selections
and the audience was entertained with reci

Commander nud Mrs. llooth-Tucher
Soon to Hold Meetings Here.
The leaders of the Salvation Army in
America, Commander and Mrs. Booth
Tucker, are coming to Washington to
hold meetings next Sunday and Monday.
Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock they will
conduct a meeting at the First Congre
gational Church, corner or Tenth and G,
and Sunday evening at 8 o'clock they will
conduct a meeting at tjie Church or tho
Covenant. Eighteenth and N.
On Monday evening they will speak at
the regular Salvation Army meeting at
Salvation Army Hall, 030 Pennsylvania
avenue. Commander and Mrs Booth
Turker are already known in Washington
as eloquent andinteresUugspeakcrs. Their
last visit here was in January, when, at
the invitation of Mrs. John W. Foster,
the leaders of Washington i-ociety assem
bled in the drawing-rooms of the cx
Seeretary of State, to hear Mrs. Booth
Tucker tell the story of her world-wide
organization, with the assistance of her
husband and Dr. Frederick Nice, who
accompanied her. She showed then the
power which used to be exhibited by
her heroic and noble mother, the late
Mrs. Gcu. William Booth, the mother of
the Salvation Army.
It did not seem strange to her audience
arter listening to her, that at the cloe or
the meeting they all united in singing
"Nearer, My God, to Thee," under the
leadership of Commander Booth-Tucker
and to the strains of Dr. Nice's violin.
Commander and Mrs. Booth-Tucker were
not able to hold any public meetings at that
time, and, therefore, are returning to do
so now. They will be accompanied by
prominent Salvation Army officers.
POSTAL DELEGATES RETURN.

The delegates to the Postal Congiess
who left Washington Friday afternoon for
a trip down the Chesapeake Bay and up

the Norfolk and Washington Steamboat
Company yesterday morning. The trip
was carried out according to the program
printed In The Times of Friday, and was
concluded without Incidents other than
those which help to make up a delightful
The -delegates left Baltimore Saturday
evening on a Bay Line steamer, and much
of the night was spent on deck. Much in
terest was manifested by the foreigners in
Fort MoHenry, and although there was a
suspicion in the minds of many of the
strangers that the old fort would not long
withstand the fire of modern ordnance, yet
they all looked at the historic structure
with respectful eyes. Few of the dele
gates turned In before the light at Point
Lookout was passed, and all of them with

urday morning, and much honor was paid

the day was spent in inspecting, Fort Mon

the Soldiers' Home at Hampton, and In
fishing and bathing.
The party left the Point Saturday night,
and the passage of the Potomac was made

ADDRESS TO GRADUATES
Dr. Rankin's Baccalaureate Sermon
at Howard University.
He-Points Out the Need for.Work
to Keep Temptation Away
Andrew Rankin Memorial Chapel, the
quaint and picturesque lioi&e of wor&hlp
In the grounds of Howard Uiilveroity, was
filled to its utmost capacity yesterday
arternoon with the students, their friends
and many prominent colored citizens, in
terested In the progress and education of
the race In this city, to llsteu to one of the
most eloquent and fcmble baccalauieate
sermons heard in that lasting monument to
the philanthropy and large-mlndediiess
6f its benefactor. President Kankin tcok
for his text Luke xix?13, "And he (.ailed
his ten servant, and delivered to them
ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till
I come." During the course of his re
marks, the speaker said:
"The old phrase of our childhood, 'And
satan finds some mischief still for Idle
hands to do,' shows that the tame law
of work is in the kingdom of darkness
We must work somewhere. If we are
idle, the devil hires us. It is the men
who stand idle In the market-place to
whom the devil gives employment. If
Judas had been about his master's busi
ness, he never would have bttrayed his
Lord. There Is no better safeguard against
crime and sin than occupation; than hav
ing something to do. A pickaxe aud a
spade are a surer preventive of wrong
doing than legislation. It is while men
are idle, hanging around drinking-places,
that they concoct their schemes of crime.
The men whom we see with dinner-pails
in their hands, iu the early morning, making
their -way to their places of employment,
engaged iu providing for their own, these
are the men, against whom are no charges
of irregular conduct. Nor are they lodged
in the police station. So that the sen
tence of Eden: 'In the sweat of thy brow
shalt thou eat bread,' has come to be
a blessing to the human race.
"The desperate benliinent, "The world
owes me a living and a 11-ingI will navy,'
has this element of truth in it: The world
makes a living possible for every man, if
he will earn It; If he will occupy this pos
sibility. Tlie places for work In this
world are almost innumerable. And the
men who are out of work are not usually
the men who are seeking work, but the
men who are shirkiug it and skulking for
it; or they want some other work than
what the world offers them and they can
get. Men come from all quarters of this
republic to get something to do from ti'e
Government; they have made up their
minds that they would like to be ministers
to other lands, consuls something higher
in position and sajary- than they nave
ever shown any fitness for. The principle,
'The place should seek the man, and not
the man the place, is not their principle
They have their breast coat-pocket filled
with recommendations and Indorsements,
and they areanxiouslyawaillngthecomlng
in of that tide which will bear them on to
fortune-the Cleveland, the Bryan or the
"The best advertisement a man can have
for a better place is to occupy, to fill the
place he occupies so full that there is no
longer room enough for such a man as
himself In It.
"The word occupy In the text has a very
suggestive meaning- Some people look
upon life's preferments mere places to
be filled. They think if they could gel
an appointment, have a -chance to show
what is In them, their future would be
made. But there is nothing so likely to
prove a man's incompetence as to secure a
position which ho cannot fill. The trouble
with the man with the one talent in the
parable may have, been Jealousy becaut-e
Eomebody else had five talents while he
had but one. The, getting into places Is
not in the text at all; It is the filling of
them, like a fountain, perennial and inex
haustible. "A great future,? great occasions come
only to man, wherbas'been occupying his
circumstances, so as to fit himself for them.

"COMMON SENSE RELIGION."
Address Before the Theosophlcal
Society by G. M. Coffin.
Mr. George M. Coffin, piesident of
Blavatsky Branch, Theosophlcal Society
in America, lectured last night at Len
man building on - "Common Sense Re
ligion." He said that we live In a thinking,
practical age, when men are measuring
everything, even their religion, with the
rules of common sense. That there is
every evidence of increasing levolt against
the absurdity of the various orthodox
dogutas, which alone separate the people
in the many denominations and keep many
good and intelligent people out of the
Air. Coffin gave a brief histoilcal sketch
of the growth of the chief dogmas, viz:
the divinity of Clnist, original sin, the
fall of man, heaven and hell, and the
He claimed that these were not taught
by Jesus In the Bible, nor by the ablest
and purest of early Chiistian fathers.
He said the'main object of the theo
sophlcal movement was to induce people
to read, to think, to study, and to Judge
what was true for themselves, without
the mediation of any priesthood or clergy,
and such an investigation would show that
theosophlcal ideas of God, the Immortaiity
of the soul, reincarnation, compensation,
heaven and hell, were not only in full
accord with the teachings of Jesus, but
also of all the world's spiritual teachers,
as well as with the-disnoveries of modern
science; and with the dictates of sound
Mr. Coffin aunounccd that next Sunday
Major James Albert Clark would lecture
on "Parallels of Harmony iu Karma" at
the same place, also that after June 1
the Blavatsky branch would move its
headquarters to Metzerott's Hall, which
it had taken to better accommodate the
