Mr. McDonald's Beautiful "Dolce far
YR. MAX WEYL'S EXHIBITION
Tho Young Women Artists of Washington.
What Success They Have Achieved Th
Good Work of the Washington Art Btn
Bad ns the Spring exhibition oJ the Society
of American Artists may be, it is redeemed in
part by some erj serious and excellent work,
and among these the only canvas shown by a
Washington artist is one deserving ot the
highest praise This is Mr. Harold McDon
ald s "Dolce far Niente," a portrait study
showing at the best his rare power as a
draughtsman and colorlst. It is hung in the
west gallery ot the beautiful new home of the
allied art societies of Xew York, and, although
It is not on the lino as it should hare been, its
position is ono of advantage; certainly it at
tracts much attention, and admiring groups
of spectators pause before it continually.
The figure in "Dclco far Niente" is that of a
beautiful young woman attired for on evening
in society or at tho theater and for a moment
reclining on n couch, indulging in n moment s
re; eiy before the door bell shall ring and her
pleasur.iblo thoughts be cut athwart by the
evening's engagement In Its settings' the
picture is wonderfully painted. Tho back
ground is socio rare Indian fabric, while color
and texture give an exquisite tone to tho up
per part ot the canvas. Tho pre ailing tone
of the picture, however, is controlled by the
beautiful bloom of color in the face, neck, and
arm3 of tho figure, to which tho soft, luscious
texture of tho jellow china silk gown lends a
charming undertone. our first impres
sion on looking at the picture is that
the painting of the figure controls the whole
canvas, and no ina'ter how well all accessary
parts of tho canvas" are done thoy nro only
true, while th figure Is above all itself true.
To tho Philistines in New York'sJHttle insular
art world this picture, by an almost unknown
Washington anl't, must bo something new.
1 here is o iittlo that is true iu tho work of
the New York men that when the are con
fronted with a genuine result it should open
their eyes just a little.
The society exhibition this year is rotten.
The worst things havo been admitted and put
out in front. The nudes of Otto Beecher and
Dcnham are more vile than anything Anthony
Coj-stock tore down the other day at the
1 euderioin Club. There are twenty of thorn all
! a d women most of them ugly women out
it the sunshine. Tho nude is beautiful when
well painted and with a motive. Xeithercon
dition redeems these things in New York,
j.i.er are simply unclothed females wretchedly
I tinted. The society of which William II.

Mux We I his given his admirers food for
admiration this past week at tho Fischer gal

tht-mo in tne few canvases shown, and they

How to Live a Century.
First, says the Medical Age, live as much as
possible out of doors, neypr letting a day poS3
without spending at least three or four hours
in the open air.
Second, keep all the powers of mind and
body occupied iu congenial work. Tho
muscles should be developed and the mind
Third, avoid excesses of all kinds, whether
of food, drink, or of whatever nature they
may bo. Be moderate in all things.
Fourth, never despair. Be cheerful at all
times. Never give way to anger. Never let
tho tria's of one daj pass over to the next.
The period from tlftv to seventv-nve should
not be passed in idleness or abandonment of
all work. Here is where a great many men
fall. They resign ail care of interest in
v. orldly affairs, and rest of mind and body
begins. They throw up their business and
retire o t n ate life, which in too many coses
proves a suicidal policy.
During the next period tho period from
seventj Ave of 100 years, while tho powers of
life are at their lowtstebb one cannot be too
careful about catching cold. Bronchitis is a
rest prolific cause of death in the aged.

Ulld. The Story of
a Lost Mine.
Last July, when the days were long and
the sun blazed down into thealleys until
oven the lizards hunted tho shadows of the
rocks, I was driving down to tho railway with
a party from Ballcna. The dust was suffo
cating, and our journey was by no means ono
of pleasure. Tho sun was near tho meridian
when it was suggested that wc stop to water
tho tetm and take a bite of lunch. A halt
was mado beneath a grovo of live oaks, and
we wero about to discuss tho contents ot our
hamper when n pedestrian camo in sight
She for it was a woman came trudging
along tho road, half hid In the cloud of dust
raised by her feel. As she drew near, we
saw that she was poorly clad. Her face was
reddened by tho sun where tho perspiration
had washed away tho gray dust with which
she was otherwise covered. She was by no
means old, and, despite the grimo and sun
burn, showed traces of beauty. Her evident
weariness and dragging movements conld not
hide her grace.
On reaching oar halting-place she laid
down the little bundle she was carrying nnd
inquired if she was on the Campo road. On
being told that she was not, and that she was
increasing her distance from that settlement,
her cjes filled with tears and she sank down
upon tho withered grass by the roadside, sob
bing bitterly. Of courso every effort wiis
n...do to console her. At length she regained
control of her emotions and told us her story
and the object of her lonely tramp.
Sbo and her husband had lived, content
and happy, in n little mining town in the
North, Lut tho bad times came and he was
thrown out of employment. Then the soun
cll of two planned for tho future, but, alas!
the planning was in vain, and the little
board for tho rainy day rapidly waned. The
rain was not n passing 6ummer shower, but
a pouring season. There were dark misgiv
ings lor tho twain, but they had tho light of
youth and hope to help them. One day they
riad in a city paper a wild, fabulous- tale ot
A CONVERT OF LASX.NIGHI,
How "Bill" Holland Was Rescued from
Meanness by the Saltation Array.
Capta. Proctor and Divers, ot the Balvatlon
Army, assisted by two Canadian 'female lieu
tenants, who arrived in Washington last Mon
day, yesterday succeeded in converting Bill
Holland, a notorious character, who has mado
the wharf his home for some yean.
Yesterday morning the army had a meeting
at the corner of Seventh street and Pennsyl
vania avenue. There was a good crowd in
attendance. One of the Canadian soldiers
was talking in a pleading and pathetic way
to the sinners. Sho graphically pictured the
inevitable fate of all those who violate the
commandments of the Lord, and poetically
pointed out the joys and bliss that attend those
who walk in tho narrow path and keep off
the devil's grass. About that time Bill came
along. Ho had a companion, whom ho
familiarly addressed as Tom. They were
fairly well "loaded;" that Is to say, they
could nothave walked a straight line A hun
dred yards at a dollar a yard. When Bill first
saw the congregation he thought there was
a row ot some sort going on, and Bill was
never known to miss a row if bo could help
himself. So they halted. The sermon lasted
for somo time. It was notlcod that Bill was
affected. Hlsees followed the speaker as
though he was hypnotized. Then Capt.
Proctor desired to know how manyt were
present who wanted tho prayers of tho
"Army." A dozen hands went up. Bill
looked at Tom as good as to say, "Well, I'm a
mind to try this thing mjsolf." The captain
repeated tho imitation, nnd when bo had fin
ished Bill spoke up and said:
"Hero's my hand. See? I ain't praed,
nor had nobody to pray for me since I left
Kansas before tho war. Come on, Tom, and,
gomohahers on this thing. 'Old up your
But Tom wouldn't do anything of tho kind.
This caused a couplo of negroes present to
laugh. Bill then forgot his religion and ad
dressed them as black - nnd
various other things that would look out of
place in tho columns of this dailv.
Then Capt. Troctor invited liill inside the
ring to kneel. Somo ono in tho crowd said
that Bill would want another drink pretty
soon, and he wanted to stay on tho outside
Bill au3wcrcd tills with a cuss word that
mado the two females turn their heads. Ho
then got down on his knees, and while Capt.
Proctor praj ml Bill interjected the supplica
ion with "nmous." Tom was evidently
largely disgusted at Bill. Ho said "Oh , .
and walked awa. After tho services Bill
went to headquarters, where he was initiated
as a soldier ot tho cross. He says that ho has
quit his meanness.

IT MAY BE VETOED,
Continued Uncertainty Regarding the
President's Action on the llland BUI.
Although the general opinion at the Capi
tol yesterday was that the Bland bill will bo
como law, eltherwith orwitbout theslgnnture
of the President, there is a later rumor to the
contrary effect in a quarter clos.0 to the ad
ministration. It is stid that while tho Presi
dent would be very glad to havo some sort of
reconciliation with tho silver men, and es
pecially the Southern Democrats among them,
who- co-operation ho needs, ho is stronglv
imbued with tho tact that the bill is vicious in
principle and should not bo sanctioned. The
certainty that the bill could not bo passed
over the veto throws adirect responslbilitv on
the President if ho signs the bill.
There is another view current that tho
President will let the bill becomo Iaw,lecaue
hefears otherwio tho ScLtte would defeat his
pet idea of tariff reform. It is thought ho
might bo willing to stiriflee his feelings on
the Bland bill. Inasmuch as it only concerned
tho coinage of silver now purchased.
This suggestion, however, is ridiculed by
the source in question, which declared that
the bill will almost certainly be vetoed.
THE TIMES comes nearer to guarantee
ing results to advertisers than an other
medium ever published. Its friends arc

Tho merchants of Washington are noted for
their bandsomo window exhibits, but by far
tho most attractive window display nrver
shown hero is tho ono now on exhibition at
the well-known' clothing and furnishing store
of Messrs. P.obinson, Chery A Co., corner
Twelfth and F streets. In one of their im
mense show windows is a display of men's
neckties nnd silk suspenders, arranged in a
very artistic and attractive manner, while
in the opposito window Is a typi

fountains, green lawn, graveled walks,

Agitating for Good Roads.
Tho Agricultural Department has issued a
circular to be sent to all railroad presidents in
the United States offering suggestions for
their co-operation in the good roads move
ment. Many of tho railway companies have
made concessions in transporting road ma
terials, ranging from half rates to free car
riage. Others havo offered to carry the
freight at the bare cost of hauling whenever a
general improvement is undertaken. It is
suggested that tho latter plan be generall
adopted. The method of computing tho cost,
it is cited, could bo defined and a board
constituted for adjutiug the rates to be
granted, in accordance with local conditions.
THE TIMES believes that the best news

tho lost Teg-Leg Mine of tho Colorado des
ert. To be sure, it told of drouth and death,
but the pockets of tho dead men were alwas
found filled with gold. Then came a lusting
for tho treasure at tho end of the rainbow
and tho self-assertion which told tho young
man that hooulddo that in which others
had failed. The resolution was taken, fol
lowed by a parting, with bright hope shininj
through tho tears and kisses.
Thus tho young husband left the bonnie
wife and started on his mad errand. Sho had
heard from him once from the Iittlo villtgo
on the edge of tho sandy waste. Since then
das bad como and gone, months had fol
lowed each other, nearly a year had pissed,
and now, weary of waiting, tho woman
sought for him. "He Is out there." she said,
"and living. I dream of him. I can sec him
waiting for me. My heart even tells me how
ho looks." Hero her face was illuminated
with her confidence. Wo dared not tell her
what our knowledge and experience taught,
that his bleached bones were lying where a
blessed death had relieved his direful agony.
What was the use' Sho was evidently half
mad. Wo did what wo thought best told
her "if he was ulivo ho would soon como to
her. That to attempt to find him without a
guido was certain death." At last we per
suaded her to return with us to the coast, but
only after promising that we would old her in
her search. On our return to the city she
was placed with a charitable organization

The summer hnd passed away; the autumn
rains had come, and with them tho presump

ever becomes, when one of my clients came
to me with a story of a wonderful mine lying
out In the arid waste. He had a sketch-map,
showing bearings by which it could be
found. The map, with some marvelously
rich specimens of quartz, had been found by
an Indian upon the body of a dead man out
upon the desert. I laughed at the story nnd
ridiculed my friend for entertaining it; but
ho insisted that every fact pointed to riches,
and that tho lost Peg-Leg only waited for us
to locate it Well, I am somewhat ot a fool

William II. .Mack's Interesting Reminis
cences of Some Early Washingtonians.
Washington, like other cities in the United
States, has among its people a German cle
ment who have had much to do with its bus
iness Interests and progress for tho past fifty
years. Among thoo sturdy, thrifty and suc
cessful Teutons Is Mr. Willltm N. H. Mack, a
resident of South Washington and 'a retired
brewer. Mr. Mack has seen that portion of
the District ot Columbia change from old sand
hills into lots upon, which rows of buildings
havo been erected, and from cow paths to
graded streets,;ovcr which pass tho rapid
transit cablo cars. Iln has been n resident of
the District since December, 1813.
It wa3 In October, J813, that Mr. JIack ar
rived in New York from Hamburg on the
brig Franklin, Capt. Slobaum, after n passage
ot flity-eight days. Ho was twent-ono ears
old, and secured a position as stoward at
Coleman's American Hotel. In December of
tho same year ho camo to Washington with
Mr. Samuel Coleman, who had liccomo pro
prietor of tho National Hotel. Mr. Mack was
emplo ed at tho hotel from 1813 to 1817 as
stoward and night clerk. During thaOIme ho
became intimate. acquainted with such Amer
ican statesman as Daniel Webster, Henry
Clay, Lewis Cass and others.
"I Lad the honor," said Mr. Mack, " to es
cort Mr. Polk to his room at tho Nation il
upon his arrival in tho city to bo inaugurated
President of tho United States.
Speaking of Mr. Clay, w hoso" homo was at
tho National, Mr. JIack said: "Ho was a
lively, social, kind-hearted gentleman and
v ery fond of a friendly game of cards. Ho
nnd his friends would plav for refreshments,
and I think the gntrowns whist Mr. Clay
rarely over ' tipped" the employes about tho
hotel, but Mr. Wobstor was in thtt respect
very liberal. Mr. Wcbfter would always
greet me good mturadly in tho mornlug and
sty: "How are ton, and how did joii sleep
last night" On ono occasion, nfttr having
answered Mr. Webster th it I felt wcil and
slept well, he replied: "How far htppler you
are than I am; I did not sleep at all last
night." Tho steward could sleep well, but
tho thinking, tired brain of the greatest ot
statesmen could not nnu rest.
"It was at Cobb's tavern," contlnuod Mr.
Mack, "that I frenuentlv saw Mr. Webster.
It was on the site where the old Canterbury
theater was erected. Cobb had iltted up his
place with six bowling alleys, sulphur and
vapor bath rooms, and had handsomely fur
nished tho house throughout It was a pop
ular resort for men well known In publla and
prfvate life during tho ear of 1818. Mr.
Webster at that time occupied his residence
on D street, near tho present police court
He would drop around to Cobb's in tho morn
ing and take his usual mint julep, henator
Thomas H. Benton, who resided on C street,
was al-o a frequent visitor to Cobb's, and I
have also seen there Commodore Stockton, 'Min
ister to German Donaldson. ex-Postmaster
Jones and others whose names I do not now
remember. It was in tho snooting gallery at
Cobb's that Dr. ickam, of Virginia, com
mitted suicide. The Doctor stood with pistol
in hand, nnd while Mr. Cobb was at tho other
end of the gallery marking tho target blew
out his brains Ho had been disappointed
about a remittance of mone and in not secur
ing an apjjointmcnt in the army. It was
about 10-30 in tho morning, and that very dav
a letter arriv e J with tho money w bich ho had
"Minister Donaldson wanted me to go to
Gormtny with him as his steward, but ix Ing
liable to army duty I declined his offer. I
nevi r sought Lut ono government position,
and that was doorkeeper at tho Capitol. Both
Cla nnd Webster interested themselves in ro7
behalf, but thero was such a Ion,; delay that
I got tired. They told mo that tho position
had been given to some old war veteran. My
uncle, Carlo Btlch, who resided in Fairfax
county, a , had fought and was wounded in
the battle at North Point, September 12, 1814.
Gen. Cass, who could spenk Germnn, and
Gen. Cullom both told him that ho was en
titled to a pension, but he was nnindef pendent
sort of a fellow and never made any effort to
secure tho bounty. Ho was a stonecutter by
trade, nnd worked upon tho Capitol build
ing." In tho Spring of 1831 3Ir. Mack opened bis
bottling and browing establishment at tho
corner of Four-and-a-half and N streets
southwest, upon which ho expended for
buildings and machinery 675,000. It was tho
tho second brewing establishment that had
been started iu tho District up to that time.
Tho cellars of tho brewery were flooded with
water, and it was otherwise much uamngod
dnnng tho improvements made to tho city by
Gov. bhepherd. Iu 1S72. He consulted coun
sel in regard to bringing suit against tho city,
but nothing ever came out 'of it. Tho old
brewery passed from Mr. Mack's possession,
and upon tbe ground where was -onco tho
brewery yard has been erected-Dr. Maeder's
Baptist church and a residence occupied by
Mrs. Horace Johnson.
Although Mr. Mack has passed the seven
tieth milestone of life, ho is still active, hale
and hearty. He thinks that a little circle or
square nt the foot of Sixth street should be
provided by the Commissioners with seats.
It would be a good resting place, he said, for
persons waiting in summer time for the de
parture of tho Sev enth street wharf boats.

The plan of our journey was to reach tho
flrst night a water-hole a score of miles from
the edge of tho desert. In view of tho possi
bility of its being dry tho cask of water had
been provided. From this point wo were to
drive on the morrow to another well Ave miles
distant, where water was kLown to be unfail
ing. This was to bo our camp and base of
operations. In fact, it was a station laid
down in the sketch-map in my client's f os
session. At last the first days destination was
reached. Tho team was worn and Jaded with
tho hot, hard work; tho men in not much bet

bucket struck tho hard, dry bottom with a

soemed to contuse the little ones, for instead
of retreating they advanced. As Perry
reached the track the car struck him and tbo

twent feet. The mangled corpso was care
fully lifted from tbo track and borne into No.

Better Air for Congressmen.
The question ot ventilation ot the House

at a meeting of tho House Committee on Ven

Marine Hospital service, nnd Mr. Charles
Adams, of the Supervising Architect's Offlee
of the Treasur Department, two of the ex
perts designated some time ago to investigate
tho question, made their report, which con
demned tho present arrangements and ele

A written report to the committee shortly to

from the apathy which had taken possession

The thought. "May not instinct be stronger
than reason? ' came to mo like an inspiration.
I walked over to tho beasts, loosened the
traces, took off the neck-yoke and tted tho
lines to their collars. Instantly they both
arose and started slowly off toward a reef of

A more hopeful feeling is pervading con
tractors nnd builders and appearances look
townrd a revival of building as soon as the
season fairly opens. Tho most hopeful do
not look for such extensive operations as
marked tho lost three or four enrs, but they
all say tho outlook Is much better than it was
six weeks or two months ago.
Among the hundreds of foreigners who
greatly admire Washington, Senor Mendonca,
thu Brazilian minister, is one of tho most en
thusiastic. He regards it as one of tbo most
delightful cities in the world to -live in and
has long contemplated erecting here a mag
nlileent rcsidenco for himself. It is not tho
design at present to erect it for tho Brazilian
government, but it may in the tuturo be
adopted by Brazil as a homo for its legation,
and it will bo built m such a manner as to be
readily adapted to that purpose should tho
Brazilian government conclude to purchase
it Tho ground for tho building has already
been selected nnd tho final transfer and tho
beginning of tho work ha3 onl been delaed
by the uncertainties engendered by the rebel
lion. As soon as that affair is permanently
settled it is understood Senor Mendonca will
perfect his arrangements. This new home
will bo in tho northwest and will bo one of
tho handsomest of the aristocratic residences
in that section. The senor is one of tho most
popular of tho foreign representatives hero
and the residents of Washington will bo glad
to see him settled in a new homo of his own,
and tho city can bo congratulated in advance
upon tho proposed addition to its beautiful

coming almost a necessity for Senators and
those occupving high places under tbe gov

The prevailing st le of official receptions and
entertainments calls for largo houses, and at
tho present rate of rentals for such property
it is cheaper to own than rent, cspeciall as
such propertyis always saleable when the offi

the permis-ion to erect the theatre will be
followed during the season by on outlav of
51.500,000 in new buildings.
The scheme of creeling a home for the Prpss

outlined includes the erection of a ten-story
building, fifty- or sixty feet wide, on ono of tho

likely, so arranged that the lower story can
bo used for business purposes, and the others

considered by several capitalists.
Some two months ago Mr. Joseph Siblev
gave -10,000 to the Methodists of the city tb
te U3cd In erecting a hospital in connection
with the Methodist Home. Tho plans for the
structure have.been prepared and the work of
building commenced. Iho outside walls will
bo of selected red brick, set in red mortar
w.th Hummelstown brown stone sills and
base togetLerwith terra cottt and copper
cornice and ornamental work. The Roman
esque stle will prevail and the first floor
will have a large entrance hall, staircase hall,
examining room, with a King in room in the
rear, dining room, waiting room, and dis
pensary, physician and surgeons' rooms with
space for heater and coal. The second floor
will have a largo ward in front forwni'.e
patients, a largo ward at tbe side and rear
for colored patients, lavatory, bath rooms,
and dark room for examing eyes of patients.
Tho third floor will havo a large operating
room in front, private wards, lavatory and
baths, kitchen and laundry. Tho building
will bo heated by hot water and will contain
tho latc-t plumbing fixtures, porcelain-lined
bath tnbs, tiled bath room floors, and will
have n dumb waiter running from the first
floor to tho third.
A careful and persistent search fails to show
au ground for the scare that has lately been
attempted over a supposed conspiracy upon
the par; of some very wicked and designing
individuals, to smuggle through Congress a
bill permitting the aforesaid wicked persons
to take posses-ion of and occupy tho streets
of the cit with street rnilw.i lines using tho

would know If such n tblng Is In cooitempla
tion said. '-I have heard it charged that such
a scheme was on foot, but looked upon it as
ono of thoso things which periodically eman
ate from the nwspapers with nothing more I
solid than guess work for a foundation. Some
men are not happy unless tncy seo sums una
cross-bones on every side. It is well known that
certain parlies are preparing tobuild nn elec
tric road betweea Baltimoie and Washington,
and without being told every man of ordinary
sense know3 that they would like to run from
the centor of Baltimore to tho center of Wash
ington, and It is also surmised, as a natural
consequence, that on a road of that length
the overhead trolly will bo used, for the cost
of tho underground system puts It out of the
question. From theso facts that are apparent
to ever one the conclusion Is jumped utthat
tho overhead trolly is to bo used inside the
city limits, and that conclusion has caused a
sort ot nightmare to seize upon the imagina
tion of some people that a conspiracy exists
to get tho right to use such a system by some
underhanded means. Congress alone has the
right to grant the uso of any system in the
district, and it is not probable a bill can bo
