Nkw York, Oct. 4.-Mr. and Mrs. J.
K. Kininett have lost their St. Bernard

handsomest animal of tho kind in the state.
Ilu measured irven and a half feet, was
thirty-four inches high and weighed 175
pounds. Mrs. Kmmett first saw Bayard at
tho bench show In this city two years ago.
Ilu was then a year and a half old. He
was valued ut M.OOO on tho oataloguu. Sho
asked her husband to buy the dog. Ho saw
the owner and purchased the animal for
Mr. Kinineu told the dog's history
to the reporter last evening. "He was my
wife's guardian and her constant attend
"t. He becaino her friend and protector
tbe very alternoon that I introduced him to
her in my dressing-room at the Cirand Op
era Iluiise. No one evr dared to come near
her while. Bayard was by her side. Otir
family physician could not ever feel her
pulse without asking her to order Bayard
to allow it. One night, while I was playing
In Cincinnati in Frlu Among the Gyp
sies, my wife becaino violently III with
neuralgia. She laid down In tho dressing
room, and moaned because of pain. Bayard
put his lace against hers and howled In
sympathy, came in and Bayard then laid
down and dropped Into a sleep. While ho
was sleeping I had my wldi taken to her
hotel. 1 then went on the stage. Presently
I heard a perfectly agonizing howl and Bay
ard came hounding In on th scene. Tim
actors stood stock still with amazement, and
there was not tlm faintest sign of a snicker
in the audience. The dog looked wild, and
suiellcil each actor, Including myself, then
he fastened his teeth In his own side,
howled plteotisly, and bounded off Iho
siage again. The curtain was wrung
down. Bayard had scented out the circuit
ous route my wife had taken from the
dressing-room. When he reached Hie
door he threw himself against il with all his
force and power and yelped. I got my
manager, Mr. Wilton to take the dog to
the hotel. He put the collar around Bay
ard's neck, and away they went. Pres
ently Mr. Wilton c.iuio back out of
" 'Jiidyou take the dog to tho hotel?'
" 'No,' said he, 'the dog look inc.' "
"Mr. Kmmett said that Bav.trd would
restore umbrella to their proper places,
bring his mistress her hone and do every
thing else except talk. The dog was burled
in Albany on Tuesday in Mr. tnuncii'
L'arden. A monument with a lile-sin
statue of Bayard will be elected over the
grave, with the inscription: ' I'ltie dog, I
love tliue.' "

bats that were noted at the Salon yesterday,
a toque of black tulle, embroidered with
pompadour sprigs of bright flower in

rare dubany ribbons, and in the midst of
that a richly Jewelled owl's head.
A Henry IV hat of yellowish, long pile

A blue soft felt bat, on one side n bow of
blue velvet and latin on which is placed a
bird with open wings, and from under the
bow emerges a kitten's head.
The demand for kitten's bead ha be

A Prohibition Hubbub at the Hub-A Kich
Member liaises a Hich Scene.
Boston, Oct. 4. The mooting of the
Massachusetts Temperance Alliance in th is
city yesterday was a scene of violenc.n an d
disorder such as U rarely witnessed. Tho
quarrelsome Prohibitionists did not come to
blows, but they asailed each other with vi
tuperation and abuse, and three women,
who are leaders of the Women's Christian
Temperance Union, became conspicuous.
The row began over tho case of the million
aire constable II. B. Faxon, of Quincy, who
baa deserted tbe Prohibition cause and gone
over to the the Republicans.
The advisory committee made a report
denouncing all who affiliated with the Re
publican party, and Mr. Faxon made a
sharp speech, In w hich ho boasted of tho
great work he had done for prohibition In
the state, and sneered ut the effort of his
friends, who nominated tho Prohibition
ticket, hi being like the man who wauled
tomako a great noise for a little money,
and to carry out the project brought
an old tin pun for a drum, and In closing
said: "I should bo pleased to have some,
one inform me what tho Prohibitionist
have accomplished in Boston, the central
beehive of the radicals, where they hold
open and secret councils. Echo answers,
'the city Is in the hands of the Butler dram
shop mob.' "
.Then tho storm began in earnest. Ado.ea
persons were trying to speak at the same
lime, as Faxon's taunts cut keenly. Mrs,
Uicln rds, president of the Christian Tempe
unee Union, fairly shrieked III her wrath.
She attacked Faxon In the bitterest terms,
mid when tho chairman Interrupted her,
she demanded that h be deposed.
Mr. Foy quoted Wendell Phillip a hav
ing said Mr. Faxon had only waged a guer
illa war upon thu liquor liiilllc. He charged
Mr. Faxon with an attempt to deceive tem
perance people Into voting with the Ib'ptlli
Mean party, which on tbe liquor question is
more hypocritical than any other.
After a noisy wrangle of half an hour, in
which tho Republican party was denoumvd
a a hypocritical Ki,nf office-seekers,
they became so disorderly that ninny of tho
men left in disgust, hut the. women kept at
their work. Mrs. Richard asserted that If
the alliance did not strike out tint name of
Mr. Faxon from the report, God would.
This," she continued, "is no laughing
matter, after the Infamous lies that hitvn
hoen told bore, that t!m Republican piu ty Is
the party of prohibition. Is thu man
who lays so a foul or a lunatlcr If ho
Is a lunatic God will have mercy on htm,
and he won't havo io many itrlpos. If he
Is a dev II be must meet the consequence. ' '
Mr. Bear of Newton, asserted that of all tho
men In thli commonwealth Faxon has tho
least Influence to manage votes, and de
nounced Mr. Robinson for affiliating with s
psrty that Is reeking with ruin."

" Will the nln t auso a postponement of

"Not by any means. The ball will bo

weather may be."
From Mr. Rainwater's remarks It will be
seen that a parade to-night is doubtful.
Most of the merchant arc opposed to
