THE SOCIAL SEASON.
The Reception of tin* Misses Carson of
• Society for the coming ■ season received a bril
liant inauguration, last Tuesday evening, in the
magnificent reception given by the Misses Car
son at their elegant home on Summit avenue.
Though the weather was wretched, beginning
with. rain early in the afternoon and continuing
worse all the evening,it did not prevent the major
ity of the invited guests from responding, thou
numerous regrets were doubtless occasioned by
it. By 9 o'clock the splendid home was filled
with beautifully dressed ladies and gallant es
corts; and with the hundreds of dazzling gasjets
from crystal chandeliers; a positive profusion of
rare flowers and plants together with the en
trancing strains of music from the instruments
in the orchestra, the scene was one of veritable
enchantment. The Misses Carson received their
guests in the main reception parlor at the left of.
the the grand hall and were assisted by their
mother, by Mrs. Mclntyre, Mrs. Hager, Miss
Wigle and young Mr. Carson. Dancing was
commenced promptly at half past nine,

floral decorations were very handsome.consisting
mainly of solid banks of cut flowers covering the
mantle shelves, and the base of each mirror;
and a very novel and pleasing device noticeable
immediately upon entering the house, was a lat-

Dr. Marshall'* Retirement from the Jack-
son Street M. E. Church.
To-day is the last Sunday that Rev. Dr. Mar
shall will officiate as the pastor of the Jackson
street Methodist church. Three years ago he
came to St. Paul from St. Louis, being appointed
to that charge, and now by the limitation im-
posed by the Methodist system his relations as
pastor terminate. These three years have
proven successful and pleasant to pastor and
people, and it is with much regret that the church
and congregation part with the friend, leader
and pastor, toward whom all hold the kindest
feeling, and with whom the strongest ties of
friendship exist. Dr. Marshall himself parts
with his charge with emotions of regret akin to
pain, so thoroughly entwined in his affections
arc the people.
During the three years of Dr. Marshall's pas-
torate 137 persons have been received
into the church by letter and 104 on
probation, making a total of 241.
The benevolent collections of the church have
been larger than in any other three years of it.-
history, and during the past year the. collections
have been larger than during the other two
years. The congregations have increased until
they arc larger than ever before. During the
period of Dr. Marshall's service the church had
purchased a most eligible lot, at the cost of 310,.
000, at the corner of Eleventh and Robert streets,
where a new church edifice is to be erected-
Upon the premises is already a fine parsonage
possessing the appointments of a modern resi-
The statement by a Minneapolis paper that Dr.
Marshall will withdraw from the Minnesota con-
ference is totally incorrect, having only the
foundation that the popular clergyman ha- bees
invited to consent to a transfer, and has declined.
The Doctor has become greatly attached to the
Minnesota conference, he Is pleased with the
people, delights in the country, and has been
greatly benefited by the best climate
on the continent. He deeply ap-
preciates the kindness which the people ol
bis charge and the community at large have ex-
tended to him, and he retires from a field where
all unite In speaking in approbative terms of bin
work, leaving a church strong and harmonious
and daily gaining ground in spiritual and secular
regards. • ' ■
Where ever this esteemed gentleman may be
placed by the dispensation of which he is a faith-
ful servant, all who enjoy the pleasure of hie
acquaintance Join in the nope that bis lines may
be cast in pleasant places and the years of bit
usefulness be many.

Mr. l't'tt'ii-iser's Serenade.
Last evening .Mr. marie* 1.. 1 .ugeiser was
made the recipient of ■ very pleasant serenade
by the Great Westers bank. Mr. Pottgeiser ha?
just returned from Germany, where __■ has been
for something more than a year, pursuing his
musical studies. For several years ho was with
a celebrated teacher of the piano in Boston, and
went to Germany, where he remained more than

' FUN ON WHEELS.
A Victim of the Treacherous Roller
Skates Gives a Few Pointers.
I am writing this with my pen between my two
first fingers. I have a bandage around my ankle,
a linseed poultice on my smoulder, and a kink in
my back. 1 hesitated to look in the glass lest I
should find myself cross-eyed. I am all strained,
and twisted, and knocked, like a ship ashore on
a lee coast. I feel as bad as will the Republican
candidate for president the day the election re-
turns are brought in. The St. Paul roller skat-
ing rink . opened up last evening. About 900
people were present, and F. L. Crocker gave an
exhibition of fancy skating. They had a merry
time. So did I — in my mind.
I was sent to write it up for the Globe, and
was seized with a desire to pat on a pair of roller
skates — case of temporary insanity, no doubt.
However, it gives me the advantage of being able
to write from experience. In many instances re-
porters are obliged to take other people's word
for it, but there is nothing speculative or theoret-
ical about this. I speak from hard experience ;
or possibly, more correctly speaking, hard maple
— that's what the floor is made of. This account
of the opening is intended to be partly sugges-
tive. In the first place, I would suggest that a
pillow be furnished with each pair of skates.
They would let a man down easier
when he is seized with an unconquerable
and sudden desire to sit down. It would also
be well if the manager would furnish his skates
with air brake attachments. This would be a
great saving to the railroad platforms, which arc
now much used as snubbing posts by skaters
who want to stop. Boiler skates are a great
deal like balky mules, the more you want them
to go ahead the more they will stop, and vice
versa. For this reason I favor the air brakes.
Of course it would require some presence of
mind on the part of the skater to apply the
brakes at the right moment, as after his heels
go in the air and he strikes the floor there may
not be enough air left in him to be of any ser-
vice. But until these much felt wants are sup-
plied the " best I can do is to give
a few general rules for success on roller skates.
In the first place, don't keep your mind too In-
tently fixed on yonr feet. There are other things
to be considered on the crowded floor of a skat-
ing rink. There are corners to be turned and
other skaters to be avoided. Keep your head up;
iu this democratic country we are all on a level,
especially on the floor of a rink. And don't try
to do all the skating with your heels. I have a
suspicion that that is what ails my thumb and
other portions of my anatomy. Don't be so
dreadfully afraid of falling anyway ; or rather,
don't fail anyway. If you have to go
down, do it gracefully; don't kick
the knee-cap off the fellow behind yon and
bring up in a heap with your feet struggling with
the legs of a lady's chair. Let it be a matter be
| tween you and the floor. Don't involve other
parties in the great downfall. I have many
kindly feelings for that railing around the rink.
I 1 wish there were railings all over the rink. I'd
i lather put my trust In that railing when I find
myself suddenly tired than to put confidence in
princes. Don't be too fast when just starting
out. This is just as good advice in a skating
| rink as in the outside world. The probabilities
| are that when you are doing your cleverest, and
are feeling pretty well satisfied with yourself,
you will discover a young man and his girl, both
I poor skaters, a few man and his advance,
poor skaters, a few feet In advance,
of you. There may not be any railing near you
or any air break on your skates. What are you
going to do? No man likes to sit down without
any apparent reason, and it is doubtful if the
spectators would understand your good Inten-
tions, or the young couple ahead appreciate your
kindness, and you would keep on going until
something happened. Now a young man — a
very thin young man, or a particularly stout
young man, or an I-can-do-it-just-watch-me-go-
through-it young man — a young woman either
for that matter, would rather be struck by a
frolicsome goat than an awkward
fellow on skates. A goat always
strikes you about amidships, and
you go down forward so .that your hands strike
the ground first; but a stupid skater, generally
strikes your heels, and you don't go down for-
ward. 1 bond that I struck on the back of my
head and saw stats. I must now go and get my
linseed poultice renewed and secure another
bottle of arnica. In conclusion, 1 wish to say
that 1 would like to meet the young lady who
seized my coat tail in hope of saving herself from
a fall. She didn't save herself, and she involved
others In the ruin. I don't wish to shake hands
with this young lady, but I would like to secure
the remains of my coat tall, and
would like to say to her that that was no place
to throw her weight on a struggling amateur
like myself. I was already handicapped in that
direction, and that little weight on my coat tails
was the straw that settled the roller skating.
With these few observations the roller skating
rink is declared open for the season, with morn-
ing, afternoon and evening sessions, and a band
on Wednesday and Saturday evenings. I wish
the rink success, but when 1 do any more skat-
ing I shall bo accompanied by a physician and

FIRE PROOFING MATERIAL. %
Wanners Patent Fire Proofing Has |
Been Time Tried and Fire
Tested by Years of
In looking up our facilities in the north
west here regarding flre-proofing and fire
proof materials, after due Investigation . we
are constrained to award the palm to Mr.
Wanner. With a courtesy for which we feel
grateful, Mr. Wanner kindly conducted us
through the extensive establishment, corner
Washington and Eagle streets, and explained
to us the superiority of his method over oth
ers' and the writer, who has examined many
compositions in' the east has never yet met
with a material so thoroughly adapted to the
use for which it is designed.
The composition is composed largely of
wood ashes and plaster of paris, is porus
light and cheap and unquestionably abso
lutely fireproof as attested by dozens of hot
fires through which it has passed in different
city blocks. It is capable of being moulded
into any form, nails can be driven into it,
and its adaptability is something- wonderful.
It has been introduced into some of the
greatest and most expensive buildings in
New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and the
great leading American cities north and
south. The same material is also moulded
into thin cubes for boiler jackets, and steam
pipe covers, its absolute non-conductiveness
and cheapness making it the best com
position for this purpose yet
discovered. The factory manufactures un-
der the French system "Coignet." Side-
walk and terrace flagging are made, cistern

The Jail Fire.
About 11 o'clock yesterday forenoon intense
excitement was occasioned in the vicinity of
court house square by the cry that the jail build
ing __ on fire, and the report was substantiated
by the appearance of a volume of smoke which'
curled lazily from that portion of the building
occupied by Sheriff .'Gorman and his
family. An alarm of fire was
turned in from Bridge square and
the department made a hasty response, but be
fore their arrival on the scene the incipient
blaze was put out. An investigation showed
that the fire had been set by a little two-year-old
child who had been playing with matches in the
apartment occupied by the servants in the
second story. The little fellow was playing in
the closet when one of the matches ignited
and set fire to the wardrobe of the domestics.
The smoke was very dense ■ at first, filling the
auditor's office, on the same floor, and supposing
that the building was on fire the clerical force at
once proceeded to pack the books in the vault.
Luckily the fire amounted to but little more than
a scare. The loss on the building i_ estimated at
$15, while the contents were damaged to the ex-
tent of $125. The insurance on the contents was

Miracles of Healing Unparal-
Miracles of Healing Unparal-

"I have teen afflicted for twenty years with an
obstinate skin disease, called by some M. D.'s
psoriasis, and others, leprosy, commencing on
an scalp, and in spile of all I could do, with the
help of the most skilful doctors, it slowly bat
surely extended, until a year ago this winter it
covered my entire person in form of dry scales.
For the last three years I have been nimble to do
any labor, and. suffering intensely all the time..
Every morning there could be nearly a dustpan -
Jul of scales taken from the sheet on my bed,
some of them half as large as the envelope con-
taining this letter. In the latter part of winter
my skin commenced cracking open. I tried ev-
erything, almost, that could be thought of, with-
out any relief. The 12th of Jane I started West,
in hopes I could reach the Hot Springs. I reach-
ed Detroit and was so low I thought I should
have to go to the hospital, but finally got as far
as Lansing, Mich., where I had a sister living.
One Dr. treated me about two weeks, but
did me no good. All thought I had but a short
time to live. I earnestly prayed to die. Cracked
through the . kin all over my back, across my
back, across my ribs, arms, hands, __■ feet
badly swollen, toe-nails came off, finger-nails ,
dead and hard as bone, hair dead, dry, and life-
lea* as old straw. O, my God ! how I did suffer.
"My sister had a small part of a box of Cuta-
cura in the house. She wouldn't give up: said,
•We will try Cuticura." Some was applied on
one hand and arm. Eureka: there was relief;
stopped the terrible burning sensation from the
word go. They immediately got the Ccncraa Re-
solvent. Ctmtxaa and Crncraa Soap. I com-
menced by taking one tablespoonful of Resolv-
ent three times a day, after meals ; had a bath
once a day, water about blood heat. ps««_ Cuti-
cura Soap freely: applied Cuticnra morning and
evening. Result, returned to my borne in just
six weeks from time I left, and my skin as
smooth £_> this sheet of paper.
