Incidents About the City-Great Crowds sad
No election ever exeited more general Interest
In the District thaa the election of yesterday.
Every where the probable results were evtcrly
discussed, and a thousand conjectures were made.
During the day. from early morning, knots and
groups gathered on the corners aid In doorway,
and oftentimes in the middle of the rnvement,
and compared figures. Eteryboly made the'
tight his own. Everybody was anxloasto asar
from the States. Ereryonewore an lnjuirlng
look, and when two friends met they did not say,
"How d'ye do," but, "Whit haveyoa hearJt"
Then roine people grew jocular, and Invented big
stories. Republican Mr. Jones punched his pudgy
thumb Into Democratic Mr. Smith's lean sides,
and Informed him that tbe latest news was that
John Kelly had voted for Peter Cooper.
A great many groundless rumors were started
about enormous gams on one side or the other
and spread rapidly. In the afternoon dispatches
began to be posted in front orthe telegraph offices
at the corner of Fourteenth street and the Ave
nue, and a crowd collected, which swelled and
swelled until it became as large as a mass meet
At nightfall atbe whole city turned out and
filled up the streets in the centre of the city, and
each man asked some one else If he had heard any
news about a doien times, so that was the com
monest salutation that met the ear. It was a
restless, moving crowd, every member of which
thought it necessary to make a trip around to the
several news depots two or three times an hour in
order to be sure notlo lose anything.
Returns were received and announced at sev
eral po'nts, Including the telegraph otnees. Demo
crats headquarters, Repnblloan committee
rooms, and several offices In Newspaper Row.
Dispatches received at the Western Union Tele
graph Office-were exhibited from the Natiohai,
JtrrrBUCAX office by means of a sdoptlcon, and
a vast crowd remained about the building until
late In the night reading the dispatches thrown
upon the mammoth sheet. The venerable Jack
son Democrats exhibited returns with a stereop
tlcon from their headquarters on Louisiana ave
nue. A brass band fllledup the Interval between
dispatches and drinks with strains of Democratic
music, and Mr. Horner, the particular champion
of Democracy, enthused the vast audience with
stirring speeches, made brief because some of his
friends not appreciating his genius and eloquence,
always forcing him back lntothe crowd when he
tried to eome forward and speak.
The returns were read from the balcony of the
headquarters ofthe Tilden and Hendricks "Re
form" club, on Seventh street, A brass band
was sqneeied into one corner of the balony, and
tickled the Democratic ear.

I rooms, on F street, near Tenth, were thronged

were read to the crowd inside and exhibited by a
stereoptlcon for the benefit orthe crowd outside.
At the office ot tbe New York Evening Pelt,
on F street, dlspatchee were read by Mr. W,
Scott Smith, and read and considered by a roam
full of Kcpclllcans.
Rcturns were read In the New York IForld of
fice to a crowd which was unanimously Demo
cratic, and dispatches were also posted up in the
office orthe Cincinnati CtzeSte.
A line was stretched to tbe rooms orthe Gnr
rick Ciub, on Pennsylvania avenue, near Four-and-a-balf
street, and the young gentlemen com
posing that club and their invited guests lounged
In ease while listening to the returns. The time
between dispatches was whiled away with euchre
or billiards, reading a paper, smoking a cigar or
sipping a class of something or other.
Dispatches were posted up In the windows of
the Atlantic and Pacific telegraph office, at
Fourteenth street. Before tne night was over
the windows were filled up with dispatches, and
ccger crowds strained their Becks to read tbe
A special wire was carried lrotn tbo Western
Union lines to Tui HrruBLlci office, so that
all the nens came direct to the office and was
thrown out on the sheet.
The city was wild with excitement during the
night, but good feeling and good order prevailed.
Enthusiasm vented Itself in making as much
noise as possible. All that was necessary to get
up a big procession was to start a boy oat with a
torch and a drum, and in a few minutes the boy
would be multiplied by a hundred, and have a
yelling, hurrahing army following him. Two or
three brigades of youthful patriots, miny ofthe
number scarcely able to lisp their own names,
were started out in this way, and moved about
town, awaking the echoes ofthe night.
The Democrats were lubilant and nolsr. One
prominent local Democrat forced his way through
the crowd in the doorway or the Republican com-mlttee-rooms,
saying, "I just want to see their
faces." The crowd about the Cincinnati Gazette
office and other Republican headquarters were
very frequently thrown into confusion by some one
from the gatheringat the Il'erM office, who would
tagger In, yelling: "Whar's Ohio! Whar's
Pennsylvany! Wnar's whar's Bucks county!
Hooray!" A lank and grim Georgia sandhlller,
who has not smiled since the war, nearly wrenched
his neck laughing, and all he said during the
evening was, "We've got 'to now."
SOTEO ABOUT TOW3T.
Preparations were made by Gilniore, Smith &
Cov, patent attorneys. No. 0-J9 F street, for the
election returns to be received at their office.
Telegraph wires were run Into the office, and an
operator was In attendance. In the evening a
lew invited ones assembled to hear tbe returns.
At a late hour they dispersed to their homes In
high spirit sdisenssing the results received, feeling
In a better condition than those who had been out
on the crowded streets.
M. Goldstein, the enterprising cigar man next
the Metropolitan Hotel, had hi j place illuminated
with Japanese lanterns, and had flags displayed
In froat r his store.
A very large crowd assembled at tbe Tilden
and Hendricks lleform club-rooms, 4SJ Seventh
street. The rooms were brilliantly lighted,
while a band was in attendance, which dis
coursed music from time to time. Only those
holding passes were admitted to tbe club rooms,
where the news was read as fast as it was re
ceived from the dilterent cities and counties. The
dispatches wero read from the portico to the
crowd below, which crowded the pavement and
exttnded across the street. Rousing cheers
would bo raised when the Democrats were an
nounced to have a majority or gain, but a great
difference was evinced when tne tide set the
The members of the Veteran Club turned out
in large numbers at their headquarters, in Le
Droit building. A pleasant evening was had in
discussing the result of the election while wait
ing for the returns to come In.
Perry Carson, to show his interest in the Issues
of tbe occasion, headed a crowd of his followers
who proceeded up Four-and a-halt street singing
"Hayes and Wheeler will be Elected," and
brought In ' We'll hang Sam Tilden to a sour
The Democrats wound up tho night with a pro
cession, headed by a brass band, which paraded
the streets stopping to serenade two or three re
nowned leaders. All of the enthusiasm bottled
up for so long was let out In a torrent or yells. A
skirmish line of police followed the procession,
and every little while advanced and picked oil
hose of the rear guard whose limbs were para
lysed by the news or bad whiskey. The station,
houses filled up rapidly.
Prompt Action ofthe Board or Health.
A hair-breed Portuguese sailor, named Joseph
Cluinn. afflicted with smallpox, was removed by
tbe health authorities yesterday from the coal
schooner Benjamin Gardside, ot Philadelphia,
lying near the arsenal wharf, and taken to the
smallpox hospital. The boat was obliged to put
back uptherlverto land him, having left George
town two days ago, bound lor Boston, and, being
refuted at Alexandria, brought hiia to this city.

ESBIOTJS SHOOTIHa APFHAY.
Quarrel Crer a Woman Three EflbetiT
Another shooting affair, which will probably be
added to the lirt cf tragedies for the year, oc
curred last evening In a house of rather D-iJ re
pute. No. (17 Maryland avenue. The victim of
the affair Is a young nun named Joseph Behlinge,
and the sbcoting was done by Thomas Pltenlynn.
The trouble arose about a woman. It appears
that FHchlynn, Behlinge, aman named Ned Wlr
ley, and two women wero in th. house at the time.
Pltenlynn and Behlinge were both drunk. Both
were Interested In the same woman, who la. the
mistress of the house. Hot words came up, and
the drunken c'lnmte came to blows.
There was a desperate struggle on the stair
way leading to the second floor, in which both
Behlinge and Wlrley set upon Pltenlynn. Wir
ley was armed with a hatchet, but, fortunately,,
did no injury with It, Pltenlynn became close
pressed and drew a seven-shooter, which he
placed close to Beblinge's person and fired three
times. The three balls took effect in the abdo
men and lungs. Behlinge fell and Pltenlynn
He made his wey to a back window of the second
story, leaped out on the shed attached to the
hense and got away, running to Sixth street and
diagonally across the reservation between Four-and-a-halfand
Sixth streets towards Louisiana
avenue. The alarm was given immediately, and
several started in pursuit ofthe running man.
Officers Amirs and Jlowe, who were doing duty
at tbe Baltimore and Potomac depot, were noti
fied ol the fact by a colored boy, who ran In
search of a policeman. TkMwo officer started
from the depot over the reservation, and thus in
ttrcepted Pltchlynn. When within a fewyards
or him ho stopped and turned, and as he still had
the pistol In his hand it was thought that he
wculd make resistance Officer Amfss approached
him. and Pltchlynn gave himself up to him, sur
rendering his weapon. 'He stated to the officer
that he was on his way to police headquarters to
give himself up. Ned Wlrley, the other man In
tbe affray, was arrested by Officer Hobbs.
Two ofthe three balls fired by Pltchlynn took
effect In the abdomen of the "wounded man, anl
one in the breast under the heart.
where the affray took place Is kept by James
Lomax and his wife. Tne two women present at
th time of the shooting were. Mrs. Lomax and a
bright mulatto woman named Bell. Lomax Is
a hard working man, and a clerk In a grocery
store. Mrs, Lomax and her female companion,
the mulatto, have had bad reputations, and Mrs.
Lomax was the woman that was at the bottom of
tbe shooting. -Tho house is a two-story frame
building, and the front door opens Into the par
lor, which Is unfurnished and unoccupied. A
door from the parlor leads directly back Into an
other room. The stairs on which tho light took
place occupies one side of this room.
After Behlinge was shot a bed was made up on
the floor of this room. Drs. Ford, Leach, and
Brookhelmerwere summoned and carefully at
tended the wounded man. He was considered In
a most critical condition, and tbe surgeons did
not deem It safe to attempt to remove the balls.
Behlinge remained conscious, but spoke very
little. Once he turned to the woman Lomax, and
regretfully remarked that be was about to die In
such a place and she was the cause of it.
Is a New York man, about twenty-five years of
age, and engaged at his trade as stair-builder on
tbe new Ccreorsn building. A dispatch was
sent to his brother, at No. 2 Twenty-eighth
street, last night, to the effect that Behlinge
could not live, and that bis brother should come
on right away. Behlinge is a Catholic, and was
visited alter the shooting by Father Rlvcly, of
Pltchlynn, when he was arrested, stated that
he had done the shooting in self-defense. Pltch
lynn is about the same age as Behlinge, and Is
fretty well known about town. His father Is an
ndlan, and a familiar character. He was locked
up at police headquarters. Wirley, the other
man engaged In .the affair, was -sent to poll;o
headquarters, but was afterward released.
All parties connected with the affair were re-luctant-to
disclose anything concerning it.
Lesions for Hard Times -Kiitakea Economy
We have spoken very plainly of the hard times
which are upon us, and orthe lessons they teach,
and orthe duties they enforce, or prudence, econ
omy, and, above All, or keeping up a cheerful
spirit, and of holding fast and unshaken to our
faith in God. These lusons cannot be too often
repeated. We need to nee the utmost prudence
and tbe most careful economy, cutting on all
needless expenses and "sailing close to the
wind" till the storm has blown over. To this
general rule there Is Indeed one exception. In the
few cases whcre.owlng to peculiar circumstances,
men have undiminished Incomes; then It Is rather
a duty toipent money more freely, la order to
famish work to those who are sorely In need of it,
and who areout of employment.
And In the matter of serin;, while reason dic
tates the utmost prudence, yet common sense
should teach a man fniriaf thing t he can save
best. He may deny himself luxuriet, but he
makes a great mistake If ho does not allow him
self enough of good, plaja food to llre.for Inplnch-
lliK J1UUXII UC UUCB Up IL:C ClUlUgB Ul IUC,DO IOSCS
all strength and capacity for labor, and might as
well commit suicide at once.
There it tuch a thing at a mltlalen economy.
Men retrench where tbey ought to spend, and
spend where they ought to save. Luxuries may
be cut off without mercy luxuries in dress and
in food. No matter how plainly we dress or how
plainly we live. So long as our dress Is neat and
clean, the utmost simplicity need not make us
ashamed in the presence of -our neighbors. On
tbe contrary. It will sustain our credit.
But we should think a man quite mistaken who
should stop sending his children to school be
cause of the hard times. Because he finds It
hard to get along will be have his children grow
up In ignorance, and lose their only chance of
being able by and bye to take care or themselves,
or to occupy a position any better than that of
t-o (If we shall not be suspected of an eye to onr
own Intel est, which Is certainly very far from our
thoughts) we should say for a man to stop bis
newspaper because lteosta three dollars ayear.or
six cents awoek, is a way of performing thatneat
operation sometimes known as "biting his own
nose oil." If there ever was a time when a man
needed something to "cheer him np," to divert
bis mind from himself, to keep from brooding over
real or Imaginary troubles, ills now. And what
does this so cflcotually as a newspaper, which,
coming weekly, tells him or a world outside of
himself, of wLose troubled whirlpool he Is not the
centre? He finds that he Is not the only man on
the earth, nor tbe only one who has trials and vex
ations. And In reading about others' troubles he
lightens his own.
There Is ono other matter about which we ven
ture to make a suggestion. Whon the times grow
harder and harder, and the pinch comeseloserand
eloser, one thing after anotherhastobe sacrificed.
Perhaps a man In better times has made provision
for his family against the contingency or his being
cut off" by getting his llio insured for one. two.
three or rive thousand dollars, so that If he should
die suddenly they might not be left utterly desti
tute. Vut when times grow very bard he finds it
difficult to pay tbe premium. By giving It up he
cannot only be relieved from this obligation, bnt
get a return from the company, what is called a
"turrender value," so that Instead of paying out
anything he maygct back a potUonof that which
he has already paid rn. The temptation Is very
strong to throw up his policy and let It go. But
what Is the truest wisdom?
We hesitate very much to give adetce to any.
body. As every heart knowetb Its own bitter
ness, so etcry man knows, or ought to know, his
own busluess affairs better than any raanean tell
him. He knows what he can do and what he ran
sot. He may disregard any suggestion, simply
because It is impcttille to folloir lu Forthat rea
son we do not advise anybody, but we may with
out Intrusion give the results of our own expe
rience. As our readers.well know, we believe in
Life Insurance. It has always seemed to us the
most ready way at once the cheapest and the
safest of "keeping an anchor to windward,"
guarding against those dangers to which we are
all exposetf, and which In an hour may make
shipwreck of life, and of all that hangs upon life.
For that reason we have for many years keptwell
Insured. When In the spring of last year we
started off on our long journey, we looked very
sharply to this, as we looked to fire Insurance en
our country home. We kept twenty-fire thou
sand dollars ot insurance on our life more than
hair in that great company, the Equitable, whose
massive building or solid granite seems to us a
fit symbol or Its financial strength, (Its assets are
over thirty millions ordbllars,) and five thousand
in the Mutual Benefit, of Newark, another com
pany with over thirty millions ; and an equal
amount In the Washington, one of our oldest
companies, which. If It has not grown to such
colossal site. Is about as snug and sound as any
corporation in the city. It Is as staunch a piece
of oak timber as Coats the waves, and may be
trusted to ride out any gale, though it were the
fiercest financial storm that ever blew.
W cannot tell what a rllr this was tons In
our long journey around the world. Although
generally in good health, there were times when
we lelt pretty "sober," if not quit "blue." When,
sweltering under the terrible heat or tropical cli
mates; when traveling la th jungle suggstd
the possibility or malaria and deadlv fevers;
many and many a time did the thought eome to
us. that our poor body might be left to rest be
neath a palm, tree on some distant shore, or b
committed to the deep la the Indian Ocean or In
the JaraorChlca Seas. At such times. In the
greatest depression. It was an unspeakable relltf
to remember that whatever became or us, there
was at leasta prorilonlorthosdependent on us.
This letting ot security alone was worth many
times all that It cost,
Orcourse we do not set up our example as one
tor others to follow who may b in circumstances
entirely dltlsrent. With some It may be an abso
lute impossibility to bold on to such a provision,
and necessity has no law. But where it Is possi

HALLET, SATIS CO. VICT0BI0TJS.
the Only Upright Piano Receiving Special
rHUADEirm., Oct 30. The flat ofthe Cen
tennial Judges In the special instanoe where they
meant to confer the supreme honors fbr superi
ority in piano mannracture Is now officially her
alded. The firm upon whom this distinguished emi
nence has been bestowed has been contented to
await the formal action of these authorities.
Messrs. Hallet, Davis k Co., or Boston, had too
thorough a knowledge or the worth or their In
struments to worry about the result. They
plaeed samples or their Grand, Square and Up
right Pianos In the Exposition last spring, and
then went home. No member or the firm re
mained behind, nor came on again, to lobby with
jurors or pester Commissioners. There stood the
Pianos, their own eloquent evidences or suprem
acy. Iher needed no hired professional players
to concertlie them Into dally attention. They
needed no paid supporters on the jury; no ban
quets to Commissioners, no Intrigue; no "Influ
ence." They were kings among their fellows,
and they shewed It.
As the makers of these peerless Instruments
were not in the least anxious to toil clandestinely
rcrthe honors they knew were sure to come, so
have they been in no hurry whatever to make
prematuro and absurd announcements or the re
sult. They could afford to abide the calm deci
sive conclusions of the Centennial authorities,
and to await undisturbed the official promulga
tion orthe same. Howwell It pays perfect merit
not to fret. Is best shown by the lollowing literal
transcript of the Judges' report, lust Issued. The
Medal uf Honor and Certificate of Distinction
are awarded the "Hallet, Davit 4- Co.'t Grand

Let the reader note how precise and unmistak
able Is the language of the report, -It Is a dis
tinct and pronounced assertion that their pianos
embody all or the most valuable or qualities.
Vsgue and glittering general tics are eschewed,
and direct and conclusive phrases set rorth
plainly the superiority or these Instruments, re
affirming tbe judgment or masters like Ltsit,
Strau?, Joachim and others. What could b
more desirable than "volume and tone," "good
construction" and "excellence orworkmanshlp;"
The last phrase Is the acme or praise, for "ex
cellence" Is a natural superlative, than which
nothing can be stronger or more definite, and the
judges knew it. Particularly emphatlo'ls the
encomium bestowed upon the Upright pianos of
this Arm's make. So eminently superior were
these Uprights found to be "by the judges that
they were singled outror specific eulogy. No
other Uprights exhibited by the forty or more
manufacturers or tills country and Europe were
found worthy of Individual mention. Those of
the Hallet, Davis k Co.'s make had already
Jumped into phenomenal favor in erervAmoilcan
State and Territory, by dint of their laagniflcent
and hitherto unknown to Uprlgh's, splendor
of tone and durability in tune. This
was their first appearance In the arena
of an International e"osltIo.", and signal
has been their victory. Conjuendlng spa
dally no other Uprights, the 'udr.es award thesj
individual honor-tor those most worthy and desir
able ot qualities. ''originality ot design" and "ar
tistic skill.' with pointed praise ror their "Inge
nious combination or mechanical devices for
securing permanence In tune." The trouble for
keeping Uprights in tune has always been the
barrier to the progress and popularity of this
beautiful and convenient style of pianos the world
over. But, though essayed here and In Europe
for years, this essential rlrtne has been attained
by no.manufacturers of Uprights, except Hallet,
Davis k Co., and the Centennial judges have ad
miringly recognised tho fact. They slight the
Uprights made by the leading manufacturers of
the United States, Canada, England, France,
Germany. Italy, Russia, ke., only to fervently
Indorse those of tbe Hallet, Davis &. Co.'s pro
duction. It Is unquestionably true that tbe
patented Improvements In Uprights owned ex
clusively by this firm, joined to the experience of
the makers and the sedulous care bestowed upon
their manufacture, have given them a Just pre.
dominance which other piano producers can neither
equal nor Imitate. These Uprights are the sen
sation of the musical world. They are destined
to maintain a deserved and permanent sover
eignty as the noblest musical creations or the
-The Unprecedented Drought in New York
Sir. Campbell, the Commissioner or Public
Works, seems to rally appreciate th discomforts
that a large city deprived of water must endure,
and promises to do all that he can to prevent such
a calamity befalling New York. He says, of
course, that he cannot make it rain, and that It Is
almost as Impossible ror him to prevent people
from being wasteful, as usaal, with the Croton.
No efforts will be spared, however, to correct the
evil, and the order to tbepubllc will be rigidly en
forced. People found to be wasteful of the water
alter this first warning will be deprived ofthe
nse of the Croton entirely by cutting off the sup.
ply from their houses, factories cr stores. Tho
men employed by the Department of Public
Works will co-operate with tbe police.
The assistant engineer the other day, In pass
ing down Filth avenue, saw what every one has
olten seen a hose lying en tbe sidewalk with the
water flowing through jt to waste. He reminded
the owner of the place that he was doing wrong,
and the following day, happening to pass down
the avenue again, and seeing the water run to
waste as the day before, ho tool, out his knife
and cut the hose olfat the hydrant. The greatest
waste 1 said to take place at stables, where a
large number of coaches aro washed daily, and In
tenement-houses, where the water Is often al
lowed to run to waste all-day.
It Is the opinion ofthe head of the Department
of Public Works that ir the people are as carefal
as they ought to be afterthe repeated warnings
given by him there will be no water famine. A
rain-fall of nearly five Inches can always be
counted en for the month or November, and that
wculd All tbe lakes and reservoirs. October In
this locality Is generally a dry month, and no
rain-fall of any account can be counted on for the
next three weeks. But a mere shower, provided
the rain fell fast, would be a great help, as It
would add many millions of gallons to the bulk
of water In the lakes. On the other hand, a slow
rain, even If It lasted forty-eight hours, would
hardly m.ke any perceptible difference in the
volume ofthe streams.
Statistics show that tbe drought of this year
has had no precedent ror about fi It r years. Forty
eight or Ally years ago no ralno'f any account
fell In the neighborhood of New York from the
4th of July up till December, and the supply or
water for that winter was rery small. x-
At the Salem Academy observations hare been
made for the last twenty-two years and the record
preserved at the Smithsonian Institute. These
observations show that nothing liketh present
drought has been experienced in Southern New
York during.all that time. AT. Y. World,
How Asiatic Moslems Regard th War.
Ifthe Mohammedans of India seem to regard
the Servian war and the present precarious con
dition oi the Turkish Empire with considerable
Indifference, tbe same charge cannot be brought
against, their brethren of Arabia. We recently
published a few Items of news received by a late
mail from Jcddab, and among them an account
or a meeting held by the metowafs (or pilgrim
guides) at Mecca, at which an important step was
taken with the avowed intention of marking the
displeasure which the community felt at certain
acts done by the English consul at Jeddah. Now
we hear that the magnates of Mecca hare again
met together, but this time with the view to con
sider 'the present position ofthe war In Turkey,
and tbe resultas in the fonner.case, has ben of
an eminently practical nature. It was decided
unanimously that in the existing state of affairs
the whole ofthe Mohammedan world was bound
to come forward and assist, either ia purl or
person, the struggling empire. .
Already the people uf Jeddah and Mecca hare
responded to the call made on them, and at the
time of the departure ofthe last mall a. sum or
tSMQ had made Its way into the hands or the
treasurer at Mecca for remittance to Constant!-.
Duple. The formal declaration thus made and
acknowledged in Mecca, calling' on Mohamme
dans throughout the world to contribute to the'
cu port of th .Turkish Empire as a religious
duty. Is an event of no slight Importance. Had

A Lady Surgeon m the Array
There was at this time at tbe Cape a person
whese eccentricities attracted universal atten
tion Dr. James Barry, staff surgeon to the gar
rison and the Governor's medical adviser. Lord,
Charles described him to ma as the most skillful
of physicians and the most way war J ol men. He
bad lately been In professional attendance upon
th Governor, who was somewhat fanciful about
bis" health, bnt, taking umbrage at something
said or-dcre, he had left his patient to prescribe
for himself. I bad heard so mueh of this cb
prl'Ious, yet privileged gentleman, that I had
a great curiosity to see him I shortly alter sat
nexthlm it dinner at one ofthe reglmentalmesses.
In this .learned pundit I beheld a beardless
lad, apparently about my own age, with an un
mistakable Scotch type or countenance, reddish
balr, high cheek bones. There was a certain
effeminacy ia his manner, which he always
seemed striving to overcome. His style of con
vertation was so greatly superior to that one
usually heard at mess tables In those days of non
competitive examination. A mystery attached to
Barry's whole provisional career, which ex
tended over more than half a century. While at
tbe cape he fought a duel, and was considered to
be of a most quarrelsome disposition. He was
frequently guilty or flagrant breaches or disci
pllne, and on more than one occasion was sent
home under arrest, hut somehow or other his
offenses were always condoned at In headquarters.
In "Hart's Annual Army List" for -the year 1815,
the name or James Barry, M. D stands at the
head of the lilt or Inspectors General or Hospi
tals." In July or the same year the Timet one day an
nounced the death ot Dr. Barry: and the next
day It was 'officially reported to the Horse
Guards that the Doctor was a woman. It Is sin
gular that neither the landlady or her lodging
nor the black Servant who bad lived with her for
years had the slightest suspicion f ber sex. The
late Mrs. Ward, daughter or Colonel Tidy, from
whom I had these particulars, told me further
that she believed the Doator-to have been tbe
granddaughter of a Scotch Earl, whose name I
do not now -give, as I am unable to substantiate
the correctness of my friend's surmise, and that
she adopted the medical profession from attach
ment to an army 'surgeon, who has not been
many years dead. Lord Albeaarle't Recollec

At the Centennial Colonel A. P. Dickey,
Racine, Wisconsin, received the first prize
arid medal for a fan mill. An exhibition of
the practical working of this machine Is
worthy of mention. The "Youn;; Giant" la a
specimen made for tbe Centennial Exhibi
tion, oi California Red wood, with silver
plated gearings, occupying a space of only m
feet in length and 1i feet In width, and is
valued at $0. It carried through some fine
Kansas wheat, from 75 to SO bushels per
tour, separating it Into three grades. The
Kansas foltz of first grade looked like the
prize Australian, with no appearance of the
wcavel. Farmers lose from ten to fifteen
cents per bushel by not grading their own
wheat, giving this great profit to the middle
men, when by tbe nse of one of these fan?,
ccsting $23 and $00 apiece, freight Iree from
Maine to Georgia, they will save the cost of
the machine the first year. Its merits over
others cf Ibis class are Its compactness as
above given, Its neatness and beauty of finish,
Its rolieless motion and great simplicity.

Cigar. LITTLE BOSS Is a new brand of cigars
that we hare had put up expressly ror our retail
trade. Ills guaranteed tons to be manufactured
from selected foreign and domestic leaf. It has no
artincM navoi, and wears satisfied that the filler
contains a preponderance of Cuban tobacco. -In
Introducing this brand our object lr to furnish a
cigar at i cents fire for -S cents of delicate flavor,
good enough to pun at home. Believing that no
member of tbe family circle would object to the
odor of pure Havana, we commend tMj elgar tn a
special manner to gentlemen whoortsh, to enjoy
their evening smoke at home, without oCense to
others. On trial we think yon will agree with us.
