The Democratic Caucuaes.
The candidates for Democratic honors are
very busy today interviewing the delegates
who were elected last evening, and otherwise
pulling -wires to the extent of their abilities.
Of course it is impossible to tell where the
lightning will strike tonight, but one thing
is noticeable, every candidate that we have
seen today says he is to be the lucky man.
The friends of J. J. Smith claim that he will
have 54 votes tor Mayor on the first balbt
The friends ot tbe other candidates lor the
same office profess to have no fears for the
success of their favorite. The same is true of

The American Sailer.
The American sailor is to be so radi
cally altered in appearance, so far as
his service in the United States navy is
concerned, that he will hardly be re
cognizable. All of the pictures of him
now extant will suddenly become obso
lete. The navy clothing board has
been for a month in daily session in
this city for the purpose of refashion
ing the naval-uniforms, which have for
a long time been considered ridiculous
ly antique. A great number of exhibit
suits have been made and pondered,
and a decision has been practically
reached. The blue will remain as the
dominant color, but the shapes are to
be thoroughly reformed. The familiar
expansion of the trousers from a tijjht
knee to a petticoatish bottom will gi c
place to a cut of legs more nearly in
conformity to civilian fashion. The
other sweeping innovation decided on
a hat, in place of the traditional snug
banded, visorless, overhanging topped
cap, which has a wonderful capacity
for catching the wind and none at all
for shading the cjes from sunlight.
The hat which the board has adopted
is exactly liko one worn gencralh
about ten years ago. It is made of
cloth, not pressed felt, and has a rather
low, round top, with a niodeT.itety
wide brim, which at usual times turns
up evenly all round, but can be turned
down wlien protection of the face is
desired. The" new hats and trousers
will take from the sailors about all the
distinctiveness which their dress has
heretofore given to them, but it is cal
culated that there will bo a gain in
itiiity. lirouklyn Eagle.

Is Cholera Siirenil by Diiiiklng-AVa-tcr?
For good health, pure water is as
nece-sary as pure air, good food, com
fortable quarters, and so forth. I niy
self am an enthusiast in the matter of
drinking-water, but not from fear of
cholera or'typhoid fever, but simply
from a pure love for the good. For
the water is not only a necessary ar
ticle of food, but a real pleasure, which
I prefer, and believe to be more health
ful than good wine or good beer.
When waterfalls, man may not only
sillier from cholera, but from all possi
ble diseases. In places where cholera
prevails the water may always be in
dicted, for tin1 w ater supply is always
a part of the locality, and the doctrine
will frequently hold good, becau-e the
part may be mistaken for the whole.
Where this in lltincc is held up lo tho
exclusion of all other local factors er
ror is liable to creep in. In England,
wheie the drinking-water theory is
fully belieed in, two like influences,
in which every other local factor was
excluded, were observed in the cholera
epidemic of 1SJ4. In ono case, in a
street in London w hich was supplied
b two water companies, the Lambert
with pure water, and the Vauxhall
withiiiipurewater.it was found that
the cholera was practically limited to
the houses supplied by the Vanxhall
Company. I was so much impressed
by this fact that I endeavored to aee
whether the epidemic of 1854 in Mu
nich could not be explained on a simi
lar hypothesi. But my researches led
me to a necative result. Without
doubting the facts observed in London,
I am of opinion that the impure water
of the Vauxhill Company did not spread
the germs of cholera, for the propaga-
tion of cholera was not effected by this,"
means in Munich, but that the water
increased either the personal predispo
sition to cholera, or perhaps the local
predisposition, since the water would
be employed in the houses, and about
the soil. Later on, in 1866, Letheby
doubted tho accuracy of the drinking
water theory, and ,'proved that there
had been considerable confusion; so
that a house which was registered on the
Lambeth Company, really drew its water-supply
from the mains of the Vaux
hall Company, anil vice rcrsa. Tho
cholera epidemic. iaUSOG was essential
ly limited to East London. The East
London Water Company supplied this
district with water filtered from the
rher Lea. Letheby brought forward a
scries of facts to nroe that wc might
with equal justice accuse the East
London Gas Company, since the tirst
case of cholera broke out at the gas
factory. Dr. Max von Pettinlofer, in
1'ojiular Science Monthly for March.
In Russia, wherein the middle classes
the seclusion of women was even a few
years as;o nearly as great as in ahareiu,
the advocate of woman's rights would
to-day find little to demand for any
class of females above the level of the
peasantry. The moujik still adminis
ters corporal chastisement to his wife
as he would to his child; and his right
to do so, though denied by the written
law, is tacitly acknowledged in prac
tice The girl, however, is nearly as
independent as her male relations.
Like her brother, and from similar
causes, she, too, often becomes dis
gusted with her home, and determines
to seek what she imagines to be the de
lights of independent life led by the
numerous female students who follow
various university courses, and partic-ularty-
that of medicine. Sometimes,
when her parents refuse her permission
to leave home, she simply runs away,
and, having no passport, her position
becomes illegal, aud she naturallylinds

How the Dusky Maidrn Are XVoftril ami
Won Aiuoiiir thr I'lutcs.
In many social matters the American
Indian had a steni of etiquette as
formal and severe as the aristocratic
residents of Murray Hill or Beacon
street. In matters relating to court
ship and marriage the higher tribes of
the aborigines w ere singular! seiere
and formal. The narration by Sarah
Winncmucca of how Indian maidens
were wooed aud won in the Piute na
tion shows the strictness "of that peo
ple in regard to the mingling of the
sexes. The old Chief's dan;liter gaie
the following account of a 1'fiite court
ship to a C'cjM reporter a few days
"When a girl reaches womanhood
and her family desire to indicate to the
tribe that their daughter has reached
tho marriagable period, she makes her
debut, an you-ay..in-.F.nglish,J)Ut the I
xiuie giw euujes uul hi uu cuiuei uu-
ferent way than that adopted by her
white sister. Just before she reaches
womanhood her grandmother has es
pecial charge of her. To that old lady,
whose years are supposed to haie
brought wisdom, the girl is given. She
schools her in domestic duties and ex
plains to her the nature and import
ance of the wifely relation. The girl
then goes with two other female rela
tives to a teepee, w hich is a small wig
wam, where she remains with them
twenty-five dais. During this time
she performs w ork which is supposed
to be strengthening. It consists chief
ly of piling wood. Three times a day,
at morning, noon and night, she stacks
five piles of wood, making fifteen each
day. Every five days her lelationstakc
her to the river to bathe, and at the
end of the time she gives her clothing
to her attendants and returns to the
family lodge. Very frequently the
wardrobe which she presents her fe
male attendants is quite extensive, and
is regarded by them as a valuable pres
ent. When the loung girl has spent
twenty-five da s in the teepee, she has
made "her debut into the society of her
tribe, and that is considered as a pub
lic announcement that the is ready to
'Of course, a pretty, shapely girl is
in great demand, just as a belle is in
your society. A girl with a haudsome
face and fine black eies and llowing
hair as black and glossy as a raien's
wing, and a willowy, graceful form, is
the object of a great deal of attention
from the young men of the tribe, and
often of the older men, too. A lovely
Indian girl is as much sought after in
her circle as a great beauty is in a Lon
don drawing-room. But, oh, how dif
ferent the two kinds of courtship are!
We have no parties in the wigwams to
which young folks go and get acquaint
ed and court. The young men and
"iris have no theatre to attend, and no
Fong walks home after the play is over.
They never go riding together, nor
strolling through the woods along the
riierbank. They never idle together
in the canoe on the water, plucking
lilies and tlowers. Although they seem
to enjoy much greater liberty to roam
and wander whithersoever their fancy
may lead them, jet they are kept as
close as prisoners, l'uite courtship
lacks freedom, and yet it is not devoid
of that intense excitement that attends
love-making the world oier.
"You may suppose that tiie girls and
young men would steal out of their
lodges of mooulight nights, and have
clandestine meetings and woo in that
wav. but thev neier dare to do it. In
deed, they ueier speak together. A
word neier passes between them. But
still a girl lery soon knows when a
young mau is interested in her. He
tries to catch her attention by his horse
manship, or his skill with the bow, or
his athletic accomplishments. He rides
by her at a furious speed and returns
again and again. In this way he at
tracts her attention aud informs her,
although he does not speak aword.that
he loves her and would liko to marry
her. But this does not comprise all of
his courtship. At night, when the In
dians haie retired to their wigwams
and are sleeping, the loung man rises
from his bed of leaves and skins and
goes to the lodge occupied by the girl
he loves. He enters silentlv aud sits
down beside her couch. A lodge is cir
cular in shape, and at night, when ihe
inmates go to bed.they heap brushwood
and logs on the fire in the center of tho
tent, and then lie down with their feet
towaul the fire and their heads towards
the outside or circumference of tho
wigwam. The Indians sleep on leaves
and robes, and arecoiered when sleep
ing with skins. As the young man en
ters the lodge he can see by the lire
light where the j otiug girl is sleeping,
and he goes directly to her side, often
stepping oier other sleepers, and sits
down by her bed. It is customary for
the young girl to sleep near her grand
mother, who is expected to rest lightly
after the girl has made her debut. A
soon as she sees the jotitig man enter
she awakens the girl, who rises and
goes to where her mother is sleeping
and lies dow n beside her. As soon as
she does this the loung man rises and
goes out as silently as he came in.
Not a word is spoken. He does not
touch the jrirl, while he is sitting by
her as she sleeps. Her grandmother
does not speak a won! of encourage
ment to him, neither does her mother
indicate that he is a welcome suitor.
The next night he comes again, and
takes up his position beside the girl,
and keeps this up for a long time.
During all the time he is courting in
this way he is treated as an absolute
stranger by the girl's relaliie-. They
may haie entertained him before lie be
gan his attention to the girl; her bleth
ers may have hunted with him and
shared the game with him, but, when
he once begins to woo liic gul, all fa
miliarity and friendship ceases. He is
never invited to eat of food prepared by
the familv of the girl, and lier brothers
never offer him anything on the hunt.
His presence is wholly ignored. If the
girl docs not like him she tells her
grandmother, and when the joungman
comes again at night, that good old
lady rises from her bed, takes a hand
ful of hot ashes from thelire and throws
them in his face. That's the mitten.
If he persists in his attentions and con
tinues to come again and again, the
whole family unite in heaping indigni
ties upon him, but the jrirl is never a
party to-this. Her brothers and sisters,
and father and mother throw ashes up
on him, dowse him n ith water. Ilagel
late him with stoutsw itches and drive
him from the lodge. Nimclinicsan In
dian persists, iu spite of such assaults,
and goes again and ng tin to the tent
where thegirl issleeping. Sometimes
his perseverance wins her heart, but not
"If the girl likes him and is willing
to marry him, then she tells her grand
mother, who informs the girl's father.
If the family think it is a suitable match
the father invites thejoung man to the
tent and asks him in the presence of
the girl if he loves her and will take
good care of her. Then the father asks
the girl if she loves the j-ouiig man.aud
tells herthe duties of a wife. If both

the I'iute sjstem of courtship is crude

which attends that period of a girl's

"Why Ho Became a Lecturer.
I studied law once in the Washing
ton Law School. In fact, I was ad
mitted to tho bar. I shall neier forget
my first case. Neither will mj-client.
I was called upon to defend a joung
man for passing counterfeit monej-. I
knew tho young man lias innocent,
because I lent him the money that
caused him to be arrested. Well, there
was a hard feeling against tho j'oung
man in the countj-, and I pleaded for a
change of venue. I made a great plea
for it. I can remember, eien noiv.now
fine it was. It was filled with choice
rhetoric and passionate oratorv. I
quoted Kent and Blackstone and Little
ton, and cited precedent after preced
ent from the "Digest of State B-ports."
I wound up with a tremendous argu
ment, amid the applause of all the
J ounger members of the bar. Then,
sanguine of success, I stood and aw ait
ed the judge's decision. It soon came.
The judge looked me lull in the face

The punch that is made in Washing
ton society is no child's drink.' This u
the recipe for the standard Washington
punch: One part of sour lemonade,
one part of claret.one-half part of rum,
one-half part of best whisk. This
concoction is then carefully sweetened
and given additional flavor by strong
dashes of various liquors. Sometimes
champagne is substituted forthe claret.
The average glass in which this punch
is serxed is round, broad and deep. It
will hold as much as a teacup. This
punch is iced to perfect coldness, and
in some places is served from a huge
block of ice. xvhich is cut in the shape
of a boAl. This punch is drank at
receptions indiscriminately by young
and old without regard to sex. The
yottn peop'e are the greatest patrons,
perhaps. Warmed up by the exercise
of the dance the young people rush to
the punch bowl to satisfy their thirst.
It is not an uncommon sight to see
j-oung gentlemen drink live or sic
glasses, nearly a pint, of this strong
mixture. I have seen joung ladies
drink from two to three glasses of this
punch. How mauj- people are there

Studj- the subject until there is no

the places, the persons and the thoughts

the places, associate with the persons,
indulge in the thoughts that lead away
from temptation. Keep busj"; idleness
is the strength of bad habits. Do not
