THE DEAD HEROES.
Decorating: the Graves and Commemo
A Magnificent Parade Nearly One Mile in
■ ■. i v " ..
.1 Memorable Event in the History of Min
Decoration Day was generally observed yes
terday. The city wore the appearance of a
holiday. [ Flags were flying at half mast, and
business fronts were draped and decorated.
The streets from 10 o'clock up to the hour of
two in the afternoon were laterally thronged
with the populace to pay fitting tribute to the
nation's fallen heroes. Everything consid
ered, it was the most notable commemora
tion day within Minneapolis' history. A
combination of circumstances contributed to
that end, one of the most notable being the
fact that, the Grand Army of the Republic
is in ■ active preparation for the coming
national encampment which is to be held
here in midsummer. All the old veterans
who reside here were aroused to unusual ac
tivity in the preliminary work, through the
frequent meetings of the ,-arious posts,
throe of which having been but recently
mustered iv. Business was pretty generally •
suspended and carriages were in great . de
maud. j The ceremonies were exceptionally
elaborate and impressive, and the music of
the life and drum tilled the air as the several
drum corps marched the streets from the va
rious armories. The graves of the dead
soldiers iv Maple hill cemetery on the East
side and in Lakewood cemetery near Lake
Caihouu were strewn with flowers in the fore
noqnj in the afternoon the event of the
day occurred in the combined ceremonies of
all the military organizations of the city in
the exercises which took place at Layman's
cemetery. The young men, members of the
National guards, united with the patriarchs,
the veterans of the great struggle for the
union of the states, in the observances.
The Forenoon's Observances.
At the hour designated, 9 o'clock, L. P.
Plummer and C. C. Washburn Posts, G.A.R.,
assembled at the armory of Plummer Post,
and shortly after took up the line of march .
under the command of 15. F. Cole, proceeded
to the East side, going direct to Maple Hill
cemetery. . Here the posts were divided into
battalions for the purpose of expediting mat
ters, and the labor of love be
gan. The graves of the noble
d ml were strewn with a profusion of Howe r
contributed by the ladies and school euil-s
dren. Making the round of the cemetery, '
the battalion halted at the grave of Geo. N.
Morgan. The old veterans were drawn up
iv line, a fervent prayer was offered by the
Rev. Mr. Starker. This grave was most pro
fusely and elaborately decorated with rarest !
flowers, and ornamented with an appropriate
and beautiful cross.
A difficulty was met iv the fact that the list
of names with which the officers had been
furnished was quite incomplete.
They were given the names of only twenty
two, whereas the number of soldiers' graves
in Maple Hill aggregated forty-two. Con
sequently the compiles had not p.ovided
themselves with sufficient number of flowers
to pay tribute to all the graves. Col. B. F.
Cole, magnanimously took upon himself the
task of seeing that these graves were properly
strewn with the emblems of peace, beauty
and purity later, in the day. He forthwith
made a detail to procure wreaths
and Bowers and the error iv com
piling the list til names was
corrected, so that not a grave in the ceme
tery was omitted from the commemorative
TIIU CATHOLIC CEMETERY.
A detail consisting of Comrade Stevens of
Wasuburn post, and Iliukle and Crawford of
Plummer post, had previously been sent to
Catholic cemetery, and the graves of the sol
diers there had also been decorated.
Geo. X. Morgan post and Butler post, the
former under command of J. C.
Price, and the latter commanded
by John 11. Egge, formed on Nicollet avenue
promptly at '.i o'clock, with the right resting
on Third street. Thence they marched to the
corner of First avenue south and Washing
ton avenue. Taking the motor at this point
they proceeded to Lakewood cemetery" at
Lake Caihouu. The lirst two coaches of the
train were tilled by members of the G. A. R.,
and the other two were tilled with citizens.
The Grand Army revived old days by sing
ing "Rally around the flag" as the train
started on its mission, and the sidewalks
were lined with people waving their hand
At Lake Calhoun the soldiers formed in
Hue and marched with music direct to the
cemetery. : Here they were met by the Ex
celsior post which was commanded by E. K.
Perkins. The three posts fell iv and after
going through numerous military evolutions,
proceeded to the graves, and the flowers,
wreaths and evergreens were distributed.
The Geo. N. Morgan Post drum corps struck
up the Portuguese hymn to which the com
rades performed their work of commemora
ting their fallen brothers. The ranks were
broken at the Masonic monument, and will
ing hands soon consummated the decorations
of the twenty-eight graves reported, unfor
tunately, through some unaccountable error,
only eighteen were found. Forming again
at the mouument, the. column marched
slowly to the graves of comrades Plummer
and Butler, the drum corps playing a solemn
dirge. A square was formed around the two
graves, the drum corps taking position in
lh» center. After decorating these graves,
comrade Marchant, of Geo. X. Morgan
post, paid a tribute to the departed
comrade Butler, and he was
followed by Rev. Mr. Bull in an
impressive address over the grave «f L. P.
Plummer. Marching at once to the motor
station they started on the return trip at 11
o'clock. The drum corps kept up the mar
tin! strains most of the distance to Washing
ton avenue, where the line of marh was tak
en up to the headquarters at the corner of
Nieollet avenue and Third street.
Two o'clock was the hour set for forming
the columns'to march to Layman's ccmetcry
but fully an hour in advance of the time,
the streets in the vicinities of the
different headquarters were throng
ed •by . members of the posts
and the patriotic populace. until it was a veri
table blockade. The columns composed of
all the posts, the Amos Zouaves and the
companies of the national guards, formed on
Nieollet avenue at 2 o'clock. Chief Marshal
Winn M. Braekctt was in command and the
ABOUT A MILE IX LEXGTH,
and it presented a magnificent appearance,
conspicuous among the whole were the Ames
Zouaves. Clad in the handsome uniform
and going through the manual of evolutions
as they marched they elicited
the enthusiasm of the spectators.
The column was headed by a squad of police
commanded by Drill Master Hill, and sis
mounted police in charge of Patrolman
Tueinisch. These were followed by Sidwell's
band; next came the National Guards, Com
pany A, thirty one men: Company I. thirty
six men: Company B. thirty-five men. Then
came Brooks' Brigade band, followed by the
Ames Zouaves, fifteen men, commanded by
Capt. A. A. Ames. These were followed by
their cadet- .•'eleven in number. They pre
sented a m: "nificeut appearance. There were
over 300 members ' of the Grand
Army in the parade, and a large number of
sons of veterans. The procession was fol
lowed by gentlemen and ladies in a long
line of carriages. The line of march was
taken up as published in yesterday's Globe.
:•■•:: THE CEREMONIES.
The column reached Layman's cemetery
at about 3 o'clock. The grounds were al
ready filled with thousands of citizens who
had arrived in advance of the procession.

a prayer by Rev. E. S. Williams."

As the speaker closed the band struck up
"Hail Columbia." ; A poem was then read
by Miss Marion Lowell followed by another
selection by the bund. The graves were
then elaborately decorated with a profusion
of (lowers, wreaths and • evergreens. This
being finished, the band again struck up a
national air. followed by solo music, a part
ing salute fired by the guards and the bene
diction pronounced by Rev. J. B. Starkey.
Returning home the posts, zouaves "and
guards arrived at their armories at 7 o'clock.

P. Rea, of Minneapolis, who proceeded to
deliver a most eloquent and touching ad
dress highly appropriate to the occasion.
A; til-- conclusion of Hie i oration I of Cast
Kea the quartette sang a selection entitled
"Cover Them Over," when the formal cere
mony of decorating the graves took place
and a dirge was rendered by the Gcnnania
band. The tiring squad of the G. A. R.,
under Comrade James Cannon, then tired
the customary salute, which was followed by
Co. F., Second regiment, M. ff. G., firing in
two platoons. The (juurtette then sang
"America," in which the vast throng of

the exercises wore at an end.
On the return the Cadet band was given
the (lost of honor, and with this exception
the return was in the same order as the out
ward inarch. At 5:30 each organization had
returned to its hall or armory and disbanded.
During the afternoon yesterday Col. llol
broob lost a pocket, hook containing some
$8,000 worth of certificates of deposit, valu
able papers, railroad posses and a large
amount of currency. It was found by a
yotrag man named James Kline and return
ed to the owner who suitably rewarded the
Tiie attendance last evening to hear Thos.
W. Keene, the tragedian, was very large,
and the audience were highly delighted.
Those who were n6t present missed a treat.
One reason why the St. Paul, Minneapolis
it Omaha railroad is so attractive to
persons traveling between St. Paul and
Stillwater, is on account of the popular and
obliging conductor*, who answer questions
civilly and are willing to impart information
to those needing such. Conductor Travis,
although a young man, is a notable example
of this, the young ladles especially being
greatly in favorof taking his trains. And
nobody blames him, as he cannot help his
good looks and winning ways.
Mr. W. D. Conrad, our prince of tobacco
nists, has just returned from an extensive
business tour through Dakota and the west,
and conies hack looking- hale and hearty. He
is one of our solid men. lie speaks in the
highest terms of the prospects, especially for
the farmeis, of that rich grain growing laud,
and has seen notling Hike it in
the nine years of nicanderiugs
over the prairies of the west. Business is
looking up, and traders are not afraid to
handle goods, notwithstanding the low
prices of wheat and other cereals. The great
quantity expected to be harvested will more
than make up for the lowness of price.
It is satisfactory to note that the drives
from up the. river arc progressing finely, the
water having risen considerably owing to
the late rains. Mr. Thos. E. Ward, an old
river man, ,vho was in the city yesterday,
says he never saw a better head of water,
lie also says the drives are very large and
some oi the foremost ones may be expected
Mr. Keator, of Moliue, Ills., one of the
largest mill men in that region was in the
city yesterday and he sees a most prosperous
season for sawed lumber, the price of which
will range at least §1 a thousand higher than
j last season. Last year he lost his large mills
I and 7,000,000 feet of lumber by fire, but it
has been rebuilt and largely increased. The
output last year was 17,000",000 feet. After
the mill was burnt last year another was
bought, and now they have the two running.
He is here looking after the log interests.
At the municipal court yesterday, before
Judge Netheway, there was a ■ very light
docket, only two lawbreakers being brought
forward. Ole Tourgeson, who is a regular
Jehu as a driver, supposed the streets were a
race course, and was driving at a breakneck
iate when he was, spied by one of our lynx
eyed guardians of the peace, marched to
durance vile, and being brought before his
honor, contributed 57.50 to the city's funds.
John Mallv,remember not the O'Mally,who
was immortalized by Marryatt, although no
doubt he could place a bigger Owe before his
name than any of them, was placed atothe
bar of justice for endeavoring to live by his
wits, and not having the stamps to pay for a
good square meal. He acknowledged his
fault,and got the privilege of leaving the city,
when he started for Minneapolis.
Although our base ball club began at the
lowest notch in the ladder of games during
the past week they arc doing finely, thanks
to the improvement in the management,
and the working of the players together.

Memorial or Decoration day opened as
bright and clear as such a day could be, and
at an early hour the streets of our good city
showed that something out of the ordinary
line was expected. Flags were floating on
the breeze at half-mast, a fitting
token to the memory of those whose
day was to be kept. The members
of the Muller post No. 1, the pioneer
Post of the state, were early astir, and the
blue coated old veterans were ready to take
up the thread of the battles of Gettys
burg, Vicksburg, the Wilderness, or Rich
mond, and to speak of the deeds of thoss
whose bodies lay mouldering on these and
other battle fields of the south. A detach
ment left the city by teams at 8 oclock for
the Catholic cemetery at Baytown, or South
Stillwater, where they decked the graves of
their comrades in arms, of which there are a
considerable number in that quiet spot.
Returning to the city they received an extra
supply of flowers and proceeded to Lake
View cemetery, one of the most lovely spots
thai could be selected for the resting place
of our loved ones, and there performed their
sad yet willing work for their companions of
many a hard fought battle. About 11 o'clock
they came back to headquarters, being ac
companied by their fife and drum band, to
which stirring music they had marched some
sixteen years before when on the road to vic

Eastboukne, Sussex,Eng., May 3, 1184. —
Any ono like 'myself with Bedouin instincts
aud fond of pedestrian exorcise, can in ten
days—it is ten days since the date of my last
—see a great deal and enjoy n great deal
down at this Buperb watering place. There
arc so many points of attraction down in the
guide books,one scarcely knows which to visif
first. There are Willingr.ou, and Wilming
ton, and Jevington — lovdy villager Tbert
is Pevensey with its historic castle 2,000
yean old uud Beacby Head a thousand times
older. There is Battle. Abbey, and then; h
Hurstmoneeux, Scaford. and Polegate, anil
Ratton Alfristou, Ensrideun, Berling Gap,
Wannock Glen and—but I shall weary with
names which arc merely names as yet
to the renders of th<- Glove but I trust thai
ere I have done, with Eastbourne these; same
names will be associated with pleasant re
collections and stirring Incidents. But before
starting out sight-seeing let us take a bath
this delightful May morning, and where shall
it be* You have a choice of your locations:
the covered baths private or public, at the
Devonshire park; an open air bath upon the
parade or public promenade; «i splendid
plunge bath from off the pier; an alfresco
bath outside the town limits. Let me ex
plain before you make your choice. The
Devonshire park baths are enclosed in a
handsome editiee and are supplied with
sea water at each rising of the
tide. There are. small private bath rooms
handsomely fitted up anti supplied with hot
and cold sea water, ami there are magnifi
cent swimming baths—two, one for ladies
and another for gentlemen—a hundred yards
long. At these baths natatorial contests and
exhibitions take place, and a lady "swim
mist," Miss Saigematt, who by the way is
not at all a miss, a sage man finding her so
(that is not amiss) married the amphibious
fair one. If you wish to bathe in the sands
—and you will if you are an Apollo or a
Juno, or if you have a handsome bathing
costume which you desire to show, you will
have to enter one of those queer looking
vehicles which look like sentry boxes on
wheels with a door at both ends. Before
entering we must go to the office, pay
our money, a shilling each—twenty-live
cents, and receive our towels and bathing
costumes if we have none of our own. How
are we to get in? See the attendant is letting
down some steps and opening the door, we
can both go in the same "machine* 5 as it is
called. When we are fairly in, that horse
will be attached to the machine and he will
draw us out till we find sufficient depth of
water to at least cover our knees. Now the
horse is detached and the attendant has let
down another set of steps at the other end of
the machine and If you are ready we will
open the door at the opposite end to the one
we entered and seaward.. Now don't be
afraid but walk down the steps, if you feel
timid and nervous take hold of this rope
hanging there on purpose and keep hold of
it if you like, all the time you
are bathing. "What a way we seem off from
the land* Yes, we are bathing earlier than
is general. The tide is now coming in, and
our machine will have to be moved several
times towards the land before we had suffi
cient of a mermaid's (or merman's) life.
It is the custom to bathe as the tide rises,
but the majority of bathers do not care to go
•in till the tide is fairly up. In half an hour
you will see the shore lined with bathers pop
ping up and down like corks in a bucket
under a pump. You've had enough? Well,
let us get up into the machine, and, as soon
as you are dressed—there is a glass, and
another behind you to arrange your back
hair by—we will open the front door, which
will be a signal for the horse to come and
draw us in again. So many ladies bathing?
Of course, no one but ladies are allowed to
bathe here. Look along yonder, toward
frowning old Beachy Head, you see more
machines there like an immense military
encampment Hooded out. That is where
the gentlemen bathe. Funny* Well, yes!
These English are a little funny about some
things. They would thing it shocking for
men and women to lounge about on the
sands and in the shallow water together as
they do at Long Branch. And they would
think it indecent for people to walk down
from permanent dressing cottages over the
beach and sands to the water, even if they
were clad in ever so becoming
and picturesque costumes. • You felt
a little chilly? That was my fault; I should
have told you that we could have ascertained
at the office what the temperature of the
water is. Let us just step in and see. Here
it is. May 3, 9a. m., temperature at Pier
head, 51 ° : in breakers, 52 ° ; wind, west,
strong; sea, rough. Go and see the bathers
from the pierhead? Oh, no! it is too late.
No one is allowed to bathe • from the pier
after 'J o'clock, and, besides, it is altogether
too rough this morning. No one would be
allowed to bathe in deep water with such a
fresh breeze and such a sea on. And, too,
people are not allowed to bathe el fresco be
yond the Redoubt on the one side and Holy
Well on the other after nine in the morning.
You see people bathe out there for the
reason that they save the expense
of a machine. They undress upon the
beach and bathe as Adam did in Pison or
Euphrates before Eve invented aprons. The
Eves too? Oh, no! ladies are not seen up
that way before 9 o'clock, without it is back
over the Downs where they some times rest
a while behind some clump of yellow flow
ered gorse or furz, and if they do turn their
field glass a lorgnette seaward, it is to watch
the flying scud or "cat's paws" which the
breeze raises like snow upon the crests of
the undulating swell. If the ladies were to
bathe so—why you should only have seen the
sensation the other day when a ladj-, a good
swimmer, struck off from the machine and
swam along the shore just outside the break
ers. She was habited in a pretty pink bathing
costume and you should have seen the
crutch and tooth pick brigade hurry along
the parade with neck craned
seaward and eyes straining. Of
course it was the graceful action of the swim
mer and not the deception color of the cos
tumc which attracted. By the way do you
see that tall, large man passing along with a
firm and somewhat pompous tread. I mean
him with the broad shoulders and somewhat
Falstaffian contour of vest which is orna
mented with a massive double chain termi
nating in either vest pocket; heavy eve
glasses are at one end and a massive cased
watch at the other. What a massive head he
has, and massive jaw r massive brow. He i s
in fact, a massive man with beard and
moustache and hair—rather long as
black as a raven's wing; his eyes
are large and strong looking, although he oc
casionally uses his glasses and they can look
soft and melting. You see him? Well, that
is Herman Merrivale,the playwright and poet.
In politics he is almost a radical, and he is
as fearlessly outspoken as his step is firm and
his voice strong. See that little man- 'who
hardly »mes up to his shoulder, and whom
he is Mdressing now? I mean the man
with snowy locks and a face even more fun
ny than that of the late George Fox or
Grimaldi. How his eyes twinkle with fun,
and how his good tempered, smooth, hairless
ace twists and squirms, and how shadows
and clouds and smiles and broad grins and
sparkling pleasure scintilctions chase each
other over that wondrously ' talk
ing face. That, cara " mia, is
Sir John Bennett, a . thorough radical
who lectures upon royal pauperism, effete
house of lords. He is fond of" expatiating
UDon the shame-faced Droeensr of NelGuvnne
and the French orange girl who drew annu
ally their pension as a badge of their ances
tors' shame —the reward of their grandmoth
er's prostitution. Sir John was down here
at the liberal banquet given the other day at
that splendid hotel—the Queen's, and he has
not returned to town yet. Sir John likes
Eastbourne. Look at that gentleman seated
there upon the roof of the paviilion. What a
contrast he is to the two gentlemen we have
just seen and yet he has too a smiling, be
nevolent, happy looking face. His hair, too,
ih as black as a coal, and so are
his eyes, and so, too, his
short side whiskers. He is closely shaven
and from flic dark skin ami slight cuts 01
cracks in the skin it is easy to see that it is
not a pleasant operation getting rid of a day's
growth of such a beard as his. What pure
white teeth he has. Forty do you say* He
is seventy if he is a day. Queer dress? Yes,
to you Americans. A large hemmed silk
hat, stove pipe you call it, with black cords on
either side extending from the rim to near
the crown. A long coat which can be buttoned
up, the chin, a silk upron reaching nearly to
the knees, short breeches fastened Just below
the knee, shoes and buckles ami cloth gai
ters from the shoes to above the calf. Yes
you are right, he is a bishop and a remarka
ble one too. He was when I knew him first,
Bey. Dr. Temple (1 was one of his pupils)
and one of the authors of '-Essays and Re
views" which electrified the orthodox
church. From the head mastership of Rug
by he was translated to the see of Exeter,
and now Dr. Temple is bishop of Exeter.
If I wore to tell you how through respect,
reverence and love he ruled in contrast to
Dr. Arnold's rule of fear and discipline, of
his wonderful influence with his pupils, his
common >cusc theological lectures, his mov
ing tearful sermons, I fear I should detain
you too long. Bless me, how the time flies;
I had intended taking you to Peversey castle,
but we have let the time slip past
and the four horsed wagonette has gone, and
as you cannot walk as I, we will defer the
trip to another day. Where are the wires to the
electric lamp ports' I am glad you a.sked me,
because there is a wrinkle from which even
you Yankees can learn something. I have
seen it stated in your papers that it is im
possible to arrange electric light wires any
other way than upon unsightly poles. Now
Eastbourne is too pretty a place to be so dis
figured and so we place the wires in gas
tubing and put them undereround. And
thlß, Brother Jonathan, will be the way of
disposing of all electric wires in "the
future. They are safer there and not so
likely to be put out of working order by
winds and storms, besides it removes their
uusightly presence from the streets which in
New York and St. Paul look like dilapidated
But I fear, Mr. Globe, I am getting very
uninteresting and will bring myself back to
what I intended to tell you of the news.
Two days ago was May day. Every reader
of Tennyson knows how May day was wont
to be celebrated, and associated In our mind
with the day is the May pole and the May
queen. The first of these I fear, has died
out entirely, and the second is
very rare. In Cheshire the custom
still prevails and this year at Knutsford the
prettiest child of the village was crowned
'•Queen of the May," with thousands of spec
tators looking on. Lord Tennyson \A-ote
to those having the matter in hand express
ing a hope that the people will long continue
their time honored festival. It is to be
hoped that the pretty maiden will not be so
unfortunate as the laureate's heroine who
discarding poor Robin fell a victim to the
stranger's whiles and flattered vanity. The
day was observed mostly by poor children
carrying around garlands of flowers covered
generally with a sheet. The custom is to
knock at the door with "Please do
you want to see my garlands
mam?" and on being presented with a
penny or two the covering is removed.
Some of these "garlands" are handsome and
must have taken great labor to make being
generally composd of wild flowers. May
day, a few years back, was the "Sweep's day"
but this year the sweeps did not muster In
force with their "Jack in the green." The
Sweeps of Eastbourne however had their usua
show. One sweep (chimney sweep) was en
cased in a frame like a pyramid covered
with ivy—the "Jack in thegreen. Little
boys with sooted faces and clothes patched
with bright colored calicoes danced around
him while "Black Sal" and "Dusty Bob"
with pan and brush led them. " Other
sweeps produced execrable noises
upon a tambourine, a violin, and an old
trombone. Mr. Bass, the head of the great
Burton brewing firm, is dead. If he did
much wrong, as prohibitionists will tell us
he did, he also did some good. Among his
acts of liberality may be mentioned the
building and endowment of a church at Bur
ton, considered one of the finest modern
churches in England. He also erected a
smaller church near his own residence, ne
gave the town of Derby a large recreation
ground, with public swimming baths; he
gave £30,0000—§100,000—towards building
a new free library and museum. He buili
the "St. Paul's Institute" at Burton, at a
cost of §175,000, and gave it to the town. He
next gave Derby a museum and library and
$15,000 towards an art gallery.
It is narrated of Mr. Bass "that, after the
passing of the first reform bill, he warmly ex
poused the cause of the Whig candidates for
Derbyshire. The Tory candidate, Sir Roger
Gresley, was defeated by a small majority,
and Mr. Bass, smarting under a supposed
injury, sent him a challenge to fight a duel,
and would have fought him, too, hud not a
friend laid information. This act, saved his
powder, but interfered for a time with his
personal liberty. It was under Mr. M. T.
Bass's direction that the firm of which he was
the head assumed such immense dimen
sions. The business premises at Burton-on
Trent now extend over forty-five acres of
freehold and a hundred acres of leasehold,
and are extending every year.
Mr. Bass was eightj'-nve years of asje at
the time of his death. Speaking of longevity
Miss Sally McKee Worford died /U Twicken ■
ham on Sunday in her hundred and second
year, and untii a few weeks before her death
was able to read the daily newspapers com
fortably without the aid of glasses.
Speaking of deaths reminds one of the
other end of life's chain and in this connec
tion let me tell you what seems even to lay
over anything for "tall stories" I ever hoard
out west: There was lately presented to the
empress of Russia a laboring man who has
had two wives, the first of whom brought him
four times four children at a birth~ seven
times three aud ten times two. The second
wife has had children seven times; the first
time she presented her husband with three
children, and the other six times two. The
whole number of children by the two wives
amounted to seventy-two.l!
Lord Falmouth, for several years an ar
dent supporter of horse racing, has retired
from the turf and sold off his splendid stud
of horses. It is stated that the nohle lord
never bet either on his own horses or other
people's, and yet he made money in the
business, as you may see from the followin"

total of £226,654 10s in 13 years, and his
expenses for the same period is estimated at
£75,000 or £80,000. To these winninss
should be added the result of sales, which
wonld amount to £200,000 more.
In referring to the failure of your J. R.
Keene, Pendrcgon, one of the best sporting
writers this|ide of the Atlantic, says:
"Mention of plungers reminds me that the
great game of speculation has had disastrous
effect on Mr. James R. Keene, of New York,
owner of Foxhall and other American-bred
horses who have figured conspicuously on the
English turf. It was not the game of specu
lation as played by Sir John Willoughby and
Mr. Baird, alias Abingdon, that acted in such
scurvy manner to Mr. Keene—it was the
game as played by our old friend Mr. Affable
Hawk of pleasant memory. Members of
that. speculative club in the city, facetiously
known as the Stock Exchange! because not
one per (Jent. of the business done is of an
exchange description, will well understand
the position of affairs when it is stated that
Mr. Keene, in the course of a few weeks,
dropped two millions of dollars while keeping
up margins. He has now determined to
suspend further payments, so he says, in or
der that all his creditors may be treated with
equal fairness. Mr. Keene's descent has
been swift and easy. Little more
than six months ago he was well up among
the "brown stone mansion millionaires of
the Empire City." Trusting too much in
Northern Pocific, he got on the down line
with the result that lie i s now a defaulter!

Mr. Lawrence Barrett does not appear to
have made a hit in London. Ido not know
if you are inundated with telegrams speak
ing of his phenomenal success as in the case
of Lotta and others but I take this from a
leading journal just to show you exactly how
he is handled here by the critics :
. "On Monday, Mr." Lawrence Barrett ap
peared in Bulwer's play of "Richelieu." in.
which he personated the wily cardinal. ' The
performance from beginning to end, was
tame and tiresome. Mr. Barrett's deliberate
manner of. delivery, without a spark of life
or soul in it. was wearying to a degree, and.
of the humour of the character he gave no
indication whatever. The scenes "lacked
spirit, and -what are called the "points" of
the piece fell flat and unnoticed. At times he
permitted himself — simulating extreme
debility—to speak so low as to be inaudible.
He commenced his performance in too low
a key, :<O. was never able to rise above it.
He evidently mistakes the tone of the play,
for it is not incapacity or want of talent that
prevents him from playing Richelieu in an'
effective manner. The play was moreover
badly cast. The De Maup'rat of Mr. Louia
James was heavy and without distinction or
interest; his voice, bearing and manner to
tally unfit him for the part of a bold, dashing
and ardent lover. The Julie of Miss Maiie
