A Half Hour With the Home Jockey
on Market Square The Last Uae to
Which the Nolile Animal l'ut.
A babel of ungentle voices in which a
phrase of stable Blang or race-course vernac
ular was occaseonally distinguikuable, caused
a Globs-Rki'Uklic reporter to halt last even
ing on his rounds of the outside stands in
market, at which he was pricing poultry and
other delicacies in memory of the good old
days when it was possible for a non-taxpayer
to invest occassionally. The sounds
came from the space outside the lines of huck
sters wagoBS,,which would have been in ver
itable "outer darknesj," but for the fitful
flashes from the flickering torches, by
the lights of which n nickel's worth of tur
nips or a pound of creamery(?J butter
were measured or weighed out to a chance
cash customer. Picking his way gingerly
through the slush the outskirts of the crowd
were reached and it was tound to be com
posed of horse traders, who gather here of a
Saturday night, during market hous, to buy
sell, swap, dicker and htm, evidently more
for the sake and pleasure of trading than
for anything that can possibly bo made by it(
as the man doesn't live who ever knew a
a fairly good animal to change owners in that
market. Operations were particularly lively
on this occasion as the intense told and bad
weather of the two or three Saturday even
ings past had depressed the market; in fact
no transactions at all were reported. Such an
array of sbag-coated. pur-blind broken
winded, knock-kneed, sway-backed steeds
with" legs spread like those of a carpenter's
trestle, it is safe to say has not been Been
since, at the close of the war the confederate
cavalry regiments were disbanded, and
"Johnny came (no, went) marching home."
It is a mystery where they all came from and
how they are kept alive to get there. The
reporter was told that, ao sooner does the
dusk cone on than, with it, com the traders
leading their crittere; from dark and muddy
alleys in all directions, from lumber yards
and back sheds where they were concealed as
long as there was a ray of daylight to expose
their blemishes. Occasionally there is trouble
when a trade showing an excess of gall in
the trader is perpetrated, but ordinarily is is
"give-and-take," diamond cut diamond, and
no kicking. The best times are said to
be when the Gypsies come around. They
are born horse traders, and generally have
some desirable stock. Some pointers have
been given the reporter on the modus operandi
of getting up a somewhat dubious flyer for
the market, but lest this article should prove
of too great length, another chapter will be
devoted to an opposition of how a brcken
down hack, in skillful hands, by rubbing,
trimming, oiling, gingering, painting, and
blowing some sort .of drug into his eyes to
make them look bright, can be given the ap

Not long ago, in a drug store, the writer
witnessed the operation of doctoring an old
brass watch, with works like an old 'ashioned
wind-mill, to make it pass in the dark as a

owned it left at once for the horse market
and had little difficulty in "swapping" bis
sum-winder for a three minute nag, for the
boye will trade for anything portable. In
this case it is bard telling which was worse

The Fancy Dress Carnival at the Oaaino
lUnk Last Evening a Big Sacceas.
As anticipated, the fancy dress carnival at
the Casino Rink last night was the finest
event of "the kind that has ever occurred in
this city at a skating rink. The masquerade
has been the chief topic of conversation in
rink circles for the past three weeks, and
coasequently when the rink doors
were thrown open the crowds rushed
in until the hall was crowded with
spectators and maskers. There were a larg
number of very fine costumes on the floor
and also a number of grotesqe figures. The
costume dealers in this city rested all their
stock and quite a number went to Cincinnati
and Dayton to "fix up." There were knights
and ladies, court ladies and gentlemen,
clowns, monks, dutchmen, dudes, sol
diers, princes and princesses, flower girls,
carrying baskets of flowers, and many other
characters. There were fully seventy-five
persona on the floor en costume, and as they
skated around, the scene was beautiful and
dazzling. The floor had been cleaned tor the
occasion, and could not have been in better
condition for the full enjoyment of this fasci
nating sport. The Big Six Band furn
ished its best music. While the
siating was going on the judges were selected
from the audience end were Messrs. R. D.
Bruce, Barney Foltz and Christie Holloway.
These gentlemen, after viewing the costumes
as the wearers glided around, made their de
cisions before the masks were removed. At
a quarter, after nine o'clock the grand march
took place and was participated in by all the
masked skaters. At its close the
bell wbb rung to unmask, and then
all who desired were allowed to skate.
The prizes offered were three in number
and were given for the finest costume worn
by gentleman and lady, and one
for the most comical costume
The prize for the gentleman wearing
the finest costume was awarded to Mr. Wal
ter H. Gibson, as a duke: the one for the
lady in finest costume to Miss Mattie Huff
man, as a flower-girl ; and the one for the
most comical costume to Master Burris Def
fenbach, as a dude.
Very beautiful costumes were also worn
by Mis3es Essie Deffenbach, Minnie Thomp
son, Ida Peale, Dora Rubsam, Messers. Will
Hall, Ed. Uarod, John Potter and others.
The heavy editor of the Wittenberg Stylus,

location of a college in a city, that the op
portunity for attending Lecture-Courses and
hearing the fiaest speakers and actors will be
increased, but we hardly believe that any of
our colleges in smaller towns are worse off
in this respect than is Wittenberg." Well,

THE nitllla l'AKK. ASSOCIATION.
Prospects (or a Sommmer Meeting on
the New Track the Coming Season.
The recent thaw brought from its hiberna
tion of the past season the Clark County
Driving Park Association, which has been in
a state of suspended animation since the rec
ord of the late lamented Ohio and Kentucky
Circuit was closed. A meeting of the officers
and directors of (he old association was held
in Keiter & White's law office one evening
lost week and the subject of reviving the or
ganization discussed in a manner showing
that interest in turf matters was unabated
and the local fraternity nothing
daunted by the situation. With a
good track and some good stock
assured it was aereed theie was uo reason
why the coming season should not be signal
ized by the holding of a good meeting; a.
summer and not a spring meeting. While
no definite action was taken, the "sense of the
meeting" was that something should be dolfa
at once to furthersuch an enterprise.and.if pos
sible, make it practical. Accordingly it was
decided to hold another meeting in the same
place Monday evening of next week, Febru
ary 9, at half-past seven o'clock, to wbKfr
time an adjounrment was voted. Some of the
original members of the association have
dropped out, but there is a prospect new ones
will be enliste i and the association put upon
a good financial besis.
Just what shape aflaira will take it is yet
too early to declare, but it is thought purses
can be offered and a programme made out for
either a two or three days' meeting thatlll
attract a good class of flyers and lovers of , the
sport from all over this part of the State.
GLOBK-RxrcBLio readers will be promptly in
formed of progress made.
The masxeerade on Friday was the event
of the season, among the rinkers, and was an
enjoyable affair. The maskers were many in
number, and the costumes greatly varied, the
ladies' Veins; very fine and becoming. The
grand march was, under the circumstances,
well conducted and very pretty to see.
Those who failed to see the Jackson Com
bination last week missed a great treat.
Their performances were fine and gave
splendid satisfaction. Master Bert C. Thayer,
of the Combination, may ju3tly be styled the
boy champion of America. He is exception

Bert Thayer finished his engagement with
the Jatkeon Combination at this poiiit, and
has started on a circuit for himself, commenc
ing with Maysrille. The rest of the party
went to Cincinnati to fill con'.ract with the
large rink in the exposition building.
The managers are negotiation with several
attractions tor this week, but have not set
tled on anything at present. A number of
first-class parties have written for dates, and
they will be announced as soon as booked, in
the daily Globe-Republic,
Another masquerade will be giren about
Washington's Birthday, when prizes will be
given to the lady and gentleman present in
most complete costumes a la 1T7G.
A fine attraction is booked for Wednesday
and Thursday evenings of this w&U in the
way of a graceful and accomplished ii.i'J
skater, Miss Genie Gould, from American
Institute of Boston. She has elegant cos
tumes, and on Thursday night will appear in
character of Minnehaha, the Indian Princess,
in full costume. She also performs the diffi
cult feat of skipping the rope on ekatea. Miss
Gould is well known throughout the eastern
cities where she is a great favorite.
Items of Intereat to Local Theater Gc?rs.
The Cincinnati papers ot the past week
have teemed with hearty enconiums of Miss
Minnie Maddern and the triumphant pre
sentation of her new comedy, "Caprice."
The Commercial Gazette says "she is posit
iv ely magnificent and reveals the genius of a
great actress." The Enquirer says she "has
beauty, voice and expression, the nervous
force and subtle emotional sensibilities that
stamp her as an artiste in whom genuine tal
ent is inborn. Her movement is simply su
perb." Miss Maddern will appear at the
Grand nxt Tuesday evening in "Caprice."
Seats are sow on sale at Carter's.
Springfield Division, No. C, Unifoim Rank,
Knights of Pythias, have engaged the emi
nent tragedian, Frederick Warde, to .appear
at the Grand next Saturday evening, in the
character of Virginius, supported by a strong
company. Tickets are on sale at Carter's,
where the box sheet will be open on Wed
nesday morning. The Saa Francisco Chron
icle has this to say: "On Thursday night
Mr. Warde played "Virginius." It was a
breath ot air from the mountain tops. It
drove before it the close and uawholesome
atmosphere ot the modern drama. It was
refreshing. The tragedy of "Virginius" is
not a great w rk ; but it gives scope for a
great actor, and Warde carried it far above
Sheridan Knowles carried it into the realms
of Shakespeare. John McCulIough has
always been claimed to be the finest "Vir
ginius" on the stage. We have not seen him
for several years, but it is to a.' unquestion
able that, with all his reputation and exper
ience, there are same scenes in which Warde
is distinctly superior, if he is not in all.
Sad Case of Lunacy.
For some time past the friends of Mr. Ly
man Olds have noticed that his mind was
rapidly failing, and within the past few days
has assumed a more violent form. Mr. Olds
realized this himself and expressed a desire
and willingness to go to an asylum for treat
ment. On Friday last, however, he disap
peared from home, and it was afterwards
learned that he went to Columbus. His object
there was to get a bill through the Legistlature
from wkich he was to receive benefits, which
would result iu his making a fortune. The
bill was to provide for the arrest of all per
sons using profane language, and on each case
brought up at the instance ot Mr. Olds he was
to receive ten per cent, of the fine and costs.
It is not known bow well he succeeded in
this, but he started back to Springfield ye3
terday mcrning. At London he was put off
the t-ain and came very near being run over.
Last night he arrived here and was imme
diately arrested and placed in iail to await

Fashion, as varisble in her moods as the
weather ol Central Ohio, Las given U3 a new
faugled pin cushion, which hangs in my
lady's boudoir and ornaments the "den" of
the popular society swell. The cushion prop
er is square and placed in a satin bag with
shirred top, which ornamented with a pretty
design in paint or embroidery and suspended
by satin ribbons Irom the wall. A very hand
some one is in a bag of baky blue, from which
springs the "fickle wild rose" in exquisite em
broidery. About 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon a lit
tle boy about fourteen years old entered the
shoe store in the Buckingham block and or
dered some shoe strings, hanging the clerk,
Mr. Walland, five cents. The clerk walked
to the rear of the store, and when be re
turned the bjy was gone. An examination
of the money drawer showed that $15 in
money was also gone, and it is needless to
say that the boy ia strongly suspected of the
Mr. J. D. McLaughlin, the well known
pitcher, who played with the Baltimores a
a portion ol last season, and who has been
spending the winter in this city leavea for
Xew Orlanathi3 week. He will remain
there for a few weeka an'l then go to Augusta
Georgia, where he will pitch for the club in
that city, w'lh Roxburgh, his former catcher,
behind the bat.

The Sir Knights of Obampion City Divis
ion, No. 44, will remember that next Wed
nesday evening, February 4, the annual
election of officers takes place at the Armory.
As this is the most important regular meet
ing of the year, on account ot the officers be
ing elected for that length of time, there
should be a full attendance. The Auditing
Committee appointed at tho last meeting to
gether with the Sir Knights Recorder and
Treasurer, will submit their reports ot the
Division since its institution, on the 25th of
last St-ptember. It is the duty of every Sir
Knight to be present. That being the regular
evening for drill, it will be omitted; be there
promptly at 7 :36 o'clock.
The first social of Division 44 was held at
Sir Knight Commander Lafferty's last Mon
day evening. Although the weather was
very cold about forty Sir Knight3 and ladiea
were present; each lady provided a basket
with sufficient lunch tor two. The Sir Knight
getting the basket was to eat with the
ladj whose card he found therein,
neither knowing whose basket they woald
get, or whose name they would find. It af
forded considerable amusement to see the
Sir Knights hunting the lady who had pro
vided for him. The evening, aside from the
novel manner of serving the supper, wai de
voted to games and conversation, breaking
up at a late hour, and every one expressing a
desire to have the same thing occur again in
the near future.
It is propo-ed by the Sir Knights of Xo.
44 to have, at their next social, readine3 and
recitations by members of the Division and
their ladies. In next Sunday"s Globe-Re-pcbijo
there will bs a list ot the Sir Knights
and ladie3 that will probably take part in the
Patriotic OiderSoiis of America.

Every night that a show is given at the
Grand Opera Honse, a crowd of boys assem
ble in the lobby, run around hooting and
yelling, and annow the people who go to fhe
Opera House to attend the show. Not only
this, but they run up and down the stairs
which lead from the alley to the gallery
stairs, and makejso much noisa that at
times it ia impossible for those inside
to hear what is being said. Last night offi
cer Record determined thit he would begin a
weeding out of this crowd if the opportunity
presented itself. He did not have to wait
long. About a o'clock he heard a scuffle on
the landing of the gallery stairs, and run
ning up found two boys quarreling and
trying to throw each other down. He
took them to the station house
and locked them up on the charge of disor
derly conduct. They gave their names as

On the fourth of March, every fourth year,
multitudes of people assemble at the Xational
Capital to take part in and to witness the cer
emonial which invests with imperial author
ity the uncrowned monarch ot the great Re
public. The preparations for the inauguration of
the next President are being made upon a
scale which promises a display ot unprece
dented grandeur and magnificence. Legions
of organized political clobs, civic societies
and trade guilds, combined with a host
of volunteer and regular military eorps,
will form a pageant of brilliant pomp -and
Washington, in the winter season, is one of
the giyeat capital' in Christendom, and the
festivities incident to the inauguration of the
chief magi-trate will render it uoubly attrac
tive. Its broad and well paved avenues and
beautiful squares, adorned with monuments
and statues; its splendid private residences,
art galleries and museums; its imposing pub
lic buildings, chief of which is the Capitol,
standing motchless in grace and symmeiry
among the finest specimens of architecture in
the world, are all objects of unfailing enjoy
ment to the viaitor. The vicinity, too, of
Washington, abounds ia places of historic
interest. Mount Vernon, the resting place of
the first President, is reached by a short
steamboat ride upon the bosom ot the majes
tic Potomac; the National Cemetery at Ar
lington, where thousands of heroes sleep, and
the National Soldiers' Home are also within

to be derived from a visit to Washington, and
the only question is, how to get there at a
reasonable cost. To meet this query the

tickets at extremely low rates. They have
