It wns Imped the eluh could secure tor
the city, Information of n startling na
ture war. hi ought out In regard to nn
alleged disci imlnnllon In the rates of
the Central Vcimont railway.
It was claimed by one of the speakers
ttmt In the shipment of rough grnnlto
from Hnrre to this city, a rate of over
double that made to 8t. Albans wai
charRed to Hurllngton. This would mako
the location lure of a graullc finishing
concern, dependent upon Hal re granite,
almost an Impossibility, lie sold that
th rate to St. Alhatis was ISe, while.
I hey demanded 00c to Burlington In spite
of the fact ihat the mileage to liu"
llngton was considerably less than to
St Albans. This would mal;o the differ
ence on a carload nbout tit. In answer
to a remonstrance, the railway pcoplj
f-nld that the additional cost was due to
switching at Kssex Junction, but thW
nrjutnent, the members of the club, were
loath to believe and It Is probable that
the uintter will bo taken up at oivo
with the public service eommtt-slon.
-Nearly all of the principal officers of
tin- clu'i wero re-elected, with the ex
ception of the clerk. V. H. Houston vi
gorously declined to serve another term,
nn the ground that ho could not spend
M.fflcicnt time to do the office Jus
ice. The reports of both the clerk and the
rensurer were of a highly satisfactory
nature, In spite of the work nnd expense
connected with the Champlaln tcrccnten

The treasurer's report showed the cash
511 hand at the present time to be nearly
HI'; a gain during the year of about $125.
The amount collected during the year
'rom members In the shape of dues was
iSO nnd constituted the greater part of
the receipts. The disbursements conslst

FOLLIES OF THE CAPITAL
Freaks of Fashionable Life in
the New Washington.
Ilnplilly llrenmlng the Most Luxurious
City In the World lvn lllng That
Are Like Hotels Xc'w "Mtinln"
There Is no micstlon of the fact that
Washington Ik rapidly becoming tlm
fashionable center of the United States,1
says the Washington correspondent of
the Hnrtford Times. Not only are multl-l
millionaires from all over tho country,
coming hero to live, hut the very rich I
New Yotk people, such as the Vnndcr-
bills nnd Belmonts, are building pnlacrs
at the capllnl for winter occupancy. Tho
Perry tirhnont mansion, at the Junction'
of Eighteenth street nnd New I lamp-
shim avenue, Is nlmost finished, nnd It1
is undei stood that the George Vnndcr-1
bills will begin to put up their palace, n
cnupl" of blocks further up tho samo
uvi'iuie, In the spring.
Jn a social sense, the Washington of;
fifteen ynrs ago was a village compared
with what It Is to-day. The Lcltcis,
leading the movement of the multl-mll-l
llonnlres In this direction, had then but
newly arrived from Chicago, and wcro'
erecting their huge white brick rcsldcmv'
on Duponl Circle. It was the first of
the great pi Irate palaces, which since,
then have been inpldly multiplying, so
that to-day they me numbered by score..,
Nineteen rcrvants are employed in the.1
Leiter mansion; but the Lnrz Andersons
have tueuty-flve, mid the Scott Town-j
sends (nenrly opposite the Andersons, on'
Mnoachiisitts avenue) rre unable to get1
along with fewer than thirty. The ex-1
pense of, running one of these hugo es-l
tnblMunents nieiely to keep It In com-'
mission, that Is to say Is from Jjjj.auo'
to JlM.oH) a year.
They are rather like hotels than like!
private houses. Indeed, the new palace
of Thomns F. Walsh, on Massachusetts!
avenue. Is larger than a good many
city hotels. Tho lives tho occupants are!
obll2l to lead are necessarily somewhat I
artificial. It Is hardly possible to cultl-l
vale a home atmosphere under such
conditions. Kathryn Elklns (daughter I
of the multl-mllllonalro senator from
West Virginia) was heard to complain!
blttcily, on a recent occasion, that lot.- j
lers linn even luieKramn inai cuiiic in
the houfo were commonly unsealed and
read by the servants, and thnt even tho
telephone calls had nudltors In butler's
department, where pampered menials en
Joyed the luxury or "listening In," to
acquire material for downstairs gossip.
If one Is to enjoy all the advantages
of wealth and fashion, however, ono
must make up one's mind to relinquish
certain comforls--among others, that of
privucy. Inevitably, mo, there Is In the(
and waste, especially where food sup
plies are conccrened. An Intimate
friend, permitted a multl-mllllonalre's
wife to glance over some of her house
hold accounts, chanced to notice that
the mistress of the establishment was
paying Jl a pound for every beefsteak
purchased. But what is one to do? A
lady In Mrs. Letter's position is fully
occupied with social affairs; she has
not time to bother with the business of
ru.intng the domestic hotel.
The young girl who lives In the private
pjilncc Is never allowed to go out alone, I
up to the time when she maker her,
debut In society, A governess, or a. 1
chaperon hired by the hour, always'
accompanies her. This Is rather a new
Idea. After "coming out," of course, It I
is 'fferent. But that event merely '
marks tho beginning of a period during 1
which the enduiance of the physical
feminine machine is tried to the utmost. I
Nothing short of scientific inanagcmunt '
will enable even the healthiest young
woman to go through two or three sea
sons of "smait" up-to-date social dissi
pation without losing the bloom of her
youth nnd the better part of her beauty.
This Is why the fashionable debutante
of the season of 1K9-10 Is treated In all
i Important respect as If she were a doll.
She Is put to bed like a doll, by her
maid, and got up and dressed like a doll.
Her both Is drawn for her, when she
wants It. She does not know how to "do"
her own hair. She never puts on her
own shoes. She never does anything
useful from the time she gets up In the
morning until the time she goes to bed.
She never takes any care of anything.
If a dress, or any other article Is to bo
put away, the maid docs It. I a hand
kerchief Is needed, tho maid gets It.
All of this Is part of the business of
being the daughter of a modern multl
mllllonalie. The .young lady is not
taught tho value of nnythlng. She
knows nothing thnt Is really worth know
ingthough she Is well acquainted with
many things she ought not to know.
What education she has acquired nt a
fashionable school before "coming out,"
Is a falso fabric a mere pretence. But
she does not need education; her work
In life Is to be ornamental, to amuse,
and to be amused,
She gets up nt noon, usually, and Is
rubbed down by a professional masseuse,
JuM like a horse. This Is to remove nil
traces of tho fatigue aiirlng from tint
dissipations of the day befote, Her neck
Is rubbed to mako It plump, an her face
likewise, to discourage commencing
wrinkles. As a itile, she Is manicured In
bed, and regularly once a week her
pretty toenails receive a similar atten
tion. It tnkes her not less than three hours
to be made ready for the day. The dress
ing of her hnlr Is in Itself a great affair
there Is so much of It to be put on. In
deed, the average socloty woman to-day
wears much moro hair than ever grow
on ono human hear. Rats? Not one.
The proper thing Is to wear a coiffure
that Is In the main artificial, but wholly
composed of real hair of the most beauti
ful und expensive kind. The young lady's
own hair Is ocmbed straight hack from
her forehead, and upon It Is superiMisfd
a circular, or semi-circular, arrangement
of real hair, Koft and level, Puff3 am
then added, with here and thero a co
It Is safe to say that no women that
ever lived were bo artificial, in a physi
cal sense, as the fashionable women of
to-day. Aa for tho hair, dyes have nover
been so. generally used, But thoy are
much better dyes than weio funnel ly ob
tainable, and so the employment of them
is not likely to be suspected. Some of
these dyes are bought In the shape of
powders, which oro brushed Into the hair.
They produce a very beautiful effect.
Tho fashionable woman of to-day has a
much better figure than her prototype
of a generation ago, or of any bygone
period. Her shape may not bo better,
but flguro Is an entirely different matter,
being determined hirnely by tho corset
maker and the diossmakcr. The women
of fashion thirty year:, ago thouht IS a
high prlco for n pair of corsets; to-day
she thinks nothing of paying 75, and has
them especially fitted. Often they are
uncomfortable, it Is true; nnd she finds
It difficult to sit down, because the stays
come nearly to her knees; but they tve
to her body the seeming coutour which
she ilcsirri . nnd nre well worth all tho
The fresh-air treatment, which Is do
ing so mil' h f r consumptives, applied
to the fashionable woman of tn-dny, for
t.ie picservitlon nnd Improvement of
her beaut-especially for complexion
nnd color. A look of vigor Is essential
to the modern Idea of beauty. The
"weary" git I of the Dundreary play the
"maid wltli the delicate hair" of the old
ballad Is out of dale. Hence it Is that
the present-day woman of fashion spends
much time out of doors.
Exercise Is nil-Important for beauty,
Accordingly, she rides a gteat deal, and
plays golf and tennis. But when It Is a
question of avoirdupois, my! how she
works. In the privacy of h,,r boudoir,
she goes through all sorts of bothcrsomo
"stunts," su.-h us picking up something
100 times In Min esslon, or lying down nn
her back nnd kicking., An thing i ,,.
cniirngo an incicaso of the waist measuro
or over-much fat In the abdominal legion.
These are das when tho fashionable
womnn of middle nge expects still to re
tain at least inmcthlng of her youthful
nppcaiancp; but how Is sho going to do It
If that fatal spiead at the hips, with Its
consequent waddle, anlvcs?
The latest fashionable fad for dlxcour
nglng adipose deposit is lo stand twenty
minute-! after each meat. This sup
po.scd to pi event the above-mentioned
tendency to circulation of flesh about
tho hips. Less wine, too h drunk nt din
ner. Physicians say that alcohol In any
shape encourages fat. At f-ome very
' swell" dinners whiskey and soda Is
served Instead of wine, and a liquor In
stead of the after-dinner coffee. This
latter Is a recent Innovation.
The most fashionable Washington peo
ple are now dining nt nine p m. If they
expect to go to the theatre, the meal In
served at seven. Even r.o they do not e
pect to airlve at tho theatre until nine,
or half past nlne-lho really modish Idea
being thnt the latter half of a play or
an opera Is always the best part of it.
As a matter of detail, tho fashionable
womnn should have forty or fifty pairs
ot shoes. To ihango them frequently
rests the feet. Of course, she must have
a different pair of shoes for every cos
tume sho v.eais. Calls are made after
tho thcatie. This Is another new Idea.
And yet another N to be "at home" to
olio's friends on Sundays. An Informal
reception on Sunday makes the day much
Where do the children come In? The
answer Is that In fashionable life nowa
days they don't come in at all. At all
events, their mothers do not bother much
with them. If little Charlie, or his sister
Jane, sees mamma onco a day, for a few
minutes before dinner perhaps, thnt
ought to bo sufficient. Nurse will do tho
rest. But tho deputy mother nowadays,
in the gay world, Is required to be a pro
fessional trained nurse, who wears n uni
form. She gets $2D n week, and Is cheap
at the price.

COST OF LIVING.
A firecn Mimnliilnrcr't. Contribution

To the Kdltor of the New York Sun
wealth was i ever greater than the total
production today. Never before has a
unll's exertion of labor produced (non
food, shelter and clothing than a unlt'n
exertion today. Export trade I ho world
over Is constantly Increasing, and we
are sending today cargoes and cargoes
of produce which to our fnthera were
What Is thus true of the i.allon Is true
of the Individual as well. Men with a
great capacity for work are not only
getting a rich and beautiful harvest but
are supplying a vast army of others,
including the dissatisfied multitude who
have little or no faith In work. Not only
Is the world's total production Increas
ing, but the consumption per capita is
Increasing as well, a day's labor to
morrow will bilng to your homo In the
evening an Increased supply of necessi
ties nnd comforts and a larger shnre In
tho Inxiules besides,
The problem then is not what Is tho
prlco of commodities, nor whnt does it
cost to live, but this; What does a unit's
exertion now bring?
The "high prlco of living" when micro
scoped merely resolves Itself Into this:
How can we Increnbo the world's total
production? I low enn we get men to do
My solution nt first sight Is altogether
new and radical and possibly may never

fessors, theologians and statesmen can
not as yet discern nor offer. Simply
this; Help the greatest worker of all,
who Is helping nil others to work, Help
the great Industrial giants and their

Humane Agent Fuller thinks that the
world Is getting better and that the men
of Burlington nre becoming more
humane. In fact, nccordlng to Mr.
Fuller, many of them nre developing the
most tender of hearts.
During tho past few months over 30
owners of horses have brought tired nnd
soul-wearied animals, If horses havo
souls, to bo killed. Some of these men
have been offered snug sums of money for
the animals, but they refused the offers.
They prcierrcu having the horses killed
lather than have them Inhumanely
treated by future owneis.
These horses, however, havo not been
honored with graves, as nre ome of the
country Dobbins nnd Nancys. It appears
thnt they nre taken to the rendering
plant, where soon their remains are scat
tered to the four directions and across
the seas. It seems sad to think that
