The gloomy period of Spring housc-elcan-lug
exchanging Mens on the proper way to clean
blinkeU. Soiie women like to hav o them "dry
cleaned," and others maintain that dry-cleaning
is totally inadequate to remove the impur
ities gathered in four months' constant use.
Somo women wash, rinse nad ring them as
they would so many sheets, and marvel at
their discolored, unattractive appearance
when they are dry.
A clear, sunny, windy day is the proper ono
to select for cleaning tho blankets, nnd only
should bo done, using good cllow soap and
a littlo soda to soften tho water. Two wash
ings through warm water and n thorough
wringing should precede tho boiling.
From tho boiler tho clothes should bo
dropped Into a tub of clear cold water and
wrung out of that into tho bluo water.
Whether tho clothes are wrung out by hand
or by mai-hine. two people aro required to
wring them. They should bo hung on tho
linos in the sunshine, and the light will com
plete tho whiteniug begun by soap and water.
Flinnels should not lm soaked. They
should not havo soap rubbed on them, but
should bo shaken into a lather. They should
bo washed in tepid instead of very hot or cold
water. They must not bo blued. They alone
should bo dried indoors, near the fire on davs
whendrjingby sun would bo a lengthy process.
Afowmoro davs nnd tho refrigerator will
bo put to even more constant and necessary
use than falls to its lot when the eather is
cold enough to do way with tho need of it for
many eatables and drinkables that havo only
to Iks set out of doors to bo kept In perfect i last season,
cond.tlon. Few duties are moro important
than that of keeping the refrigerator abso
lutely clean and sweet.
If the lining breaks at nny timo it should at
onco bo mended, or if too badlydamaged should
be discarded, for tho water soaking into tho
wood means tainted food and certnln disease.
Once a week everything should bo removed
from it. , The 6helves should be taken out
and washed In hot soapsuds, after which they
should bo scalded in boiling water. Tho ice
rack should bo treated in tho same manner,
and both when washed should ls laid in tho
sun until perfectly dry. Run a flexible ro 1
down the wasto pipes, to mako certain that
nothing has lodged there.
A thorough housekeeper recommend" tho
use of washing soda in boiling water to
elennso tho Ico comjmrtment, being certain
that It is wiiied thoroughly dry after this
operation. Tho other parts" of the refriger
ator can be washed v Ufa hot soapsuds, will
ing them perfectly dry. Alter thjikavotho
doors open for an hour or more and then put
back the food and ice. Warm food should
neter bo put Into tho refrigerator, as it
absorbs thu flavor of other foods and also
beats the refrigerator. Butter and onions
should never bo in the same compartment.
Do the refrigerator cleaning on th" day the
ice man is expected, but plan thu work long
enough nheidof his vi-it to havo tho chest
thoroughly dry when the ice is put into it.

Manager Schmelz, of the Washington ball
club, bos always proved himself n good ad
vertiser, and his reputation in this respect
has been added to since coming to this city.
Not an opportunity has been let slip to keep
tho publlo informed of every move made in
regard to engagement of players, to Improve
ments nt the ball park, or in the movements
of tho men. Tho new manager is a hustler,
and if ho succeeds in picking out n winning
team from the players under contract be will
cover his past nnd present laurels with added
glory. Col. Schmelz is no new-comer In the
baseball arena, and he has lost none of that
conlldenco possessed when he so ably han
dled tlio old Columbus Association club.
May ho have similar success hero.
For tho first timo in tho history of the
League the prospects for a successful finan
cial season were never so bright. All wars
and dissensions have passed; tho old war
debt incurred in tho consolidation of tho
American Association with tho League has
been wiped out; tho extravagant salaries of
former davs have been given tho go by, and,
In fact, all tho clouds aro gono and tbo clear,
bright sunshine of prosperity beams benignly
upon tho magnates. that remains is for
tho entire twelve clubs to finish first in tho
raco for tho pennant, and then there will be
twclvo cities, all containing happy and de
lighted peoplo,Jwho will welcome their heroes
bemo nnd crown them with wreaths of glory.
Hut alas this cannot be, and but ono club
can secure tho prize, so that eleven others
will naturally bo forced to occupy various
places lower down in tho raco. As Washing
ton has. much to tho mortification of the
local baseball patrons, in past jears has been
down nt tho bottom of tho list, thero is, of
course, considerable room for hopo for better
luck this jear. As theru are tnenty-slx
nlaers nn tlm linm cli.li'st roll, the rrmnnipr
-will have a pretty hard task to pick out tho
3t material lor permnnenijposmons; out
Mr. Schmelz bos ample conlldenco in being
able to do himself nnd the club full Justice in

Tor the information of tho nubile, the
players under contract nro as follows:
Catchers. McGuire. Dugdaic.
McMahon; pitchers, l'etty, Esper. Black
Mercer, Maul, htocksdalu. Fgau, Stephens
nnd M. J. Sullivan; inllelders, Cnrtwriirht,
Ilassumaer, Jou Sullivan, John McMahon.
Mulvey, Ward, Stricktr, Jojco and AVie; out

show there are just nine, and It will hardly bo

over live. Of the wholo number. Esrer.
Stephens, Maul and Stocks lale played here
last season, and tuelr preliminary work will
be watched with a great ileal of interest, to
see how they size up in comparison with tho
new men. 31. J. Sullivan lias dono good
work for Cincinnati, and is n strong young
fellow. The others have mado reputations in
minor organizations, and havo yet to make a
showing in tho big lcagae.
With res jioct to ttiocatehers.McGuIro and Mc
Mahon are no experiments, und the same may
bosaidof Dugdaluand Selbach, both of whom
havo done good playing in tho past. The great
est competition will bo for tbo infield positions.
The mouth's practice before tho opening 01 tbo

by tlireo of tho four men on the roll, nnd the
ono failing to give satisfaction will have only
himself to blame;.

Tho Elds and Yets played their second
game yesterday afternoon at National Furk.
On Friday tho Vets were defeated 11 to 4, so
yesterday the Kids grew over confident and
offered to play them with eight men. The re

soul In the Mate, but I wrote to Major W. H.
vvortmngton, men editor of tho Columbus
(Miss.l Democrat, telling him who and vhero
I was and whit I wanted. My reason for
writing to Major Worthincton was this: Ho
had managed a Sintrs-liights paper in St.
Louis. Mo., just after tho war a paper called
The States, to which the undo afler whom I
am mined was his favorite contributor.
Major "i orthington secured mo n place at

Items of Interest Concerning the Sport of
Kings in this A'icinltj-.
Tho local lovers of racing nre somewhat
uneasy as to tho timo of passage of the bill
before Congress legalizing racing and book
making In tho District. There appears to bo
an clement opposed to tho granting of any
such privileges, but it seems to bo pretty gen
eral sentiment that tho bill will become a
law. Tho question with tho raco people is as
to the timo of final action by Congress. It is
desired by tho AVashington Jockey Club to
begin their spring meeting next month, and
there remains but a few weeks to make tho
necessary arrangements. There is a vast de
tail of preliminary work, and tbo executivo
committeo of the club met Thursday evening,
when the outlook was discussed. It is hoped
that Congress will pass tho measure during
tho coming week.
George II. Engeman has still control of tho
Ivy City track, und he will surely take advan
tage of any law passed to give meetings at
Ivy Citj-, but whether ho would race in oppo
sition to Bcnnings is not definitely known.
During the troublous times last December,
when tho racing was stopped through the
arrest of tho bookmakers. Mr. Engeman de
clared he would mako it hot for tho AVashing

Selbach and ! will carry out his threat now that timo has
cooled his resentment.
Thero nro rumors of deals affecting raco
tracks outside but in close proximity to tho
District, but so far only tne Gentleman's
Driving Park, near bt. Asaph's Junction,
A'irglnla, has developed into anvthlng tan
gible. J. M. Hill, of Aloxaudria, hasacquired
control of that course, nod will open up to
morrow with soveral trotting races. Tho
principal attraction will bo tho books on
foreign races, and this will draw all the
former visitors and patrons of Jackson City,
w hilo the novelty of seeing one set of racing
with tho opportunity to bet on others will bo
calculated to attract many others.
Thero is nothing in tho now A'ircinia law to
compel tbo running of races at anv track in
order to permit of bookraaking. "it simply
allows Letting to bo conducted on any regular
chartered track. It is not likely there will bo
racing every day at tho Hill coarse, but theru
will bo books ojien on foreign events at all
Tho officials of tho Washington Jocioy
Club havo been casting about for n good
place to run off their meetings In the event of
Congress not taking favorable action on the
present bill. The Hill track near Alexandria
was visited and inquiry was made as to the
cnanees ol securing tho track at Marlboro,
Md. it was found that tho club can get pos
session of the latter, out nothing definite, ft
Is understood, has been done in the matter.
Thero is also n well-founded report con
necting the name of A. J. Thompson, tho
"Duko of Gloucester," with an effort to get a
race course in Maryland close to AVashington.
An agent of Mr. Thompson was in tho city
reccntly and made a tour of the surrounding
country, and returned homo to make his re
port. 1 here may be something result from
tho visit in tho near future. This desire to
locate in Maryland or A'irginia is due to the
act that tho outlook for the resumj tion of
racing In New Jersey is not so bright, and as
the A'irginia and Maryland laws allow of rac
ing and bookrcaking, a fine Held is offered in
those States to the r ico people.
District Attorney Birney will doubtless call

makers before loug. as he has placed himself
on record as intending to do so. The track

Hints for the Household.
Vinegar and salt will clean tho black crust
off sheet-iron frying pans, but they should be
thoroughly scoured afterward with sand
soap or nny good scouring soap.
Ifshehesund lloors of closets aro wiped
with water hot with caj-enno pepper, and
afterward sprinkled with borax and alum,
roaches and other vermin are kept at baj-.
AVhcn tbo fat's in tho fire it is never wise to
throw water upon it. If fat in a kettlo boils
over and there aro ashes convenient to throw
on tlio blaze, it is tho surest, safest way to
put it out.
Steel knives used nt table or for cutting
bread, meat or anytning for which a sharp
knifo is needed, should never be used for
stirring or cooking nnj-thing in hot grease,
as it makes them very dulL
A simple plan of disinfecting rooms con
sists in putting a saucepan of salt in tbo
middlo of the room and pouring on it a
dram or two of sulphuric acid. Tho fames
that ariso do tho work of disinfection.
Tho chimney of a lamp should never bo
touched with water. A few drops of alcohol,
or even parafllno bil, will remove tho dimmed,
smoky effect, and make the chimney as
bright as possible when it is polished with a
soft flannel or chamois skin.
Watch for THE TIMES to-morrow. It Is
breezier than'ever on week-days.
The Uses of an Ojstcr Shell.
Ono of the handsomest pieces of furniture
about n kitchen tible is u thick-lipped ov-ster
sheik It makes a much nicer pot aud skillet
scraper than an "iron dishcloth." The chain
arrangements which aro used for lb.it purpose
nro all abominations. They get full of infin
itesimal bits of cabbage, burned potatoes,
bits of fried onions, broiled steak nnd the like,
aud onlj n bath of concentrated Iyo anrt tho
application of scrub bru-hwill clean them.
An oj-ster shell can bo kept as clean as a silver
Two Inexpensive Soups.
Take n few cents' worth of bones of beef,
slowly stow, add somo salt, pepper, and mace.
Thicken this with medium sage. Either car
rots or onions or both mav- bo added. For
tho sago you may substituto several small
suet balls aud so produce a different soup." If
the broth bo mado from mutton bones instead
of beef, salt, pepper, and a very littlo oatmeal
may lw added or a littlo pearl barley if tbo
soup be for children.
Buy a ham bone, stew it well, add a pint of
dried pe.is, somo mint, pepper, salt, etc.. to
suit respective tastes. This jou will find
very good. To any of tho abovo add anj
bones remaining from meat used in tho house.
Bits of gristle, etc., nro excellent helps in
maklngn good soup. In carving beet cut off
tho gristle, lay it on tho sido of tho dish, and
tako caro to add it afterward to your soup.

M Entirely New Spring StoGk !
Tailor-made Giotliing at Half and Two-thirds Tailors' Prices.
A constantly increasing business in the face
of one of the most "panicky" periods in the history
of the country.
SPREADING THE GOOD TIDINGS OF FINE CLOTHING AT POPULAR PRICES
change has come over the spirit of our
dreams. We fear Ave have not put the
" good points " of our stock before you
half strongly enough. We have left too
much to your supposition. We pro
pose to be more aggressive. We pro
pose to proclaim the " LARGENESS,"
the "GOODNESS," and the "REA
SONABLENESS" of our Spring
stock so loudly that you men will
have no excuse for paying more else
Avhere, and even then not being as well
dressed. We are not going to cry " Wolf" nor cry
" Bargains." We are going to put the " Clothing
NeAvs" before you as you have never heard it
before. No house has a monopoly on all the "good
tilings " in the clothing business even Ave
haven't. But Ave get as good as can be had, and
pay as little as anyone else, and propose to sell as
Ioav as equal grade clothing can be bought in
Our friends have expressed themselves as being
SURPRISED AT OUR LOW PRICES-they have
"had no idea Ave sold so Ioaa'," ccc.
Another thing; Ave began business here last
September; consequently Ave have no old Spring
stock to shpAv- ALL IS NEW.
Another thing ; Ave cater to no one class of trade.
We have low-priced clothing, popular-priced cloth
ing, and high-price fine clothing catering to the
masses TO EVERYBODY.
We have a big stock a big store, and a big
trade but Ave propose to make all three bigger!
We have laid our plans to see you this week.
The Spring season's choicest styles are 'here.
Whether you Avish to buy or not we ask the pleas
ure of your company this Aveek to-morroAV or as
early in the week as POSSIBLE.
