SPARKS MAKES A BREAK.
It Looks as though Commissioner Sparks
wanted to get out of the land office. He is
evidently seeking to give the secretary of
the interior some provocation for request
ing his resignation. The great body of the
people have faith in Mr. 'integrity.
They sustained him in his big fight with
the land rings. They believed him when
he said that the whole public laud system
was honey-combed with fraud, and they
were anxious to see him inaugurate the
reforms that he promised when he took
charge of the department. There has also
been a suspicion in the public mind that
Gen. Sparks has not had the support and
encouragement that he deserved to receive
from congress and from the national ad
ministration. All these things have had a
tendency to enlist public sympathy in his
behalf and to array public sentiment on his
eide. But it must be admitted that the
public has not been satisfied with the
methods that the commissioner has adopted
to expose the frauds which were supposed
to exist in the land department and to
' establish the reform which he had prom
' ised. He has been slow in his movements
and exceedingly arbitrary in his conduct.
' The people are anxious to see the proofs
:of the frauds that have been committed
land they want to see the rascals turned
into the penitentiary, and they are grow
ling a little restive under Commissioner
-Sparks' delay in this matter. But while
' they are a wee bit impatient in this re
l spect, their impatience is not so
I great as to justify the land
commissioner in refusing to execute the
i laws which are now on the statute books.
His recent order directing the registers and
j receivers to receive no new filings on new
■ applications for entry under the pre-emp
! tion, timber culture and desert land laws,
1 simply because congress is considering the
question of their repeal, is one step too far
lin stretching official authority. It is an
j arbitrary and unwarranted exercise of
| power which cannot be tolerated. It
;is just as reasonable that the
president should direct a suspension
of the constitution because congress is
considering an amendment to the organic
law as that the head of a department
should suspend a law because it is likely to
;be repealed. It is probable that congress
will repeal the timber culture law, as it
, ought to do, but until it is repealed it is
[ the duty of the commissioner and of every
j other official in the land department to
\ respect its provisions and to enforce them.
' It is the duty of an executive officer to en
force the laws, not to suspend them.
EXPELLING TIIE ROYALISTS.
The French people are satisfied with their
experiment of self-government and now
propose to perpetuate the republic. The
- most important step in this direction is the
. expulsion of all descendants of royalty
; from the country. At first glance this looks
! to be a harsh measure on the part of the
- French Republicans, aud yet it is the wisest
\ tiling they can do. These sprigs of
i royalty have their heads chock full
iof the idea of the divine right
iof kings. They believe that they hold
k- a title direct from heaven to the French
L throne. Consequently they are fanatical
j in their opinions and as such are dangerous
j enemies to the French republic. There is
* no hope of ever converting these royalists
!to a republican faith. As long as they re
i main in France they will be constantly in
f triguing to overthrow the government, in
, the belief that a restoration of monarchy is
j a religious duty. Therefore the French re
; public has no alternative but to banish
: them from the country and to keep them
,• out. The scion of royalty is to France
what the anarchist is to this country
( revolutionist who is a perpetual menace to
j the peace of the nation.
* THE "WILY CZAR.
So far as foreign policy is concerned, the
j "Russian government is displaying more
wisdom than Great Britain. The czar is
j either a statesman of the first water, or he
< has some cabinet minister close in his confi
■ dence who is a master diplomat. The suc
i cess which Russia has met with in concil
; iating Turkey, Persia, and outlying regions
| of the Orient, and attaching them tb the
! Russian government, is a stroke of diplo
i macy which England will feel later along.
It is true . that the British government
is so engrossed with its internal
troubles that it doesn't find much time to
devote to its foreign affairs. But the czar
is shrewd in taking advantage of England's
domestic embarrassments to work the
Oriental field for all it is worth. It would
be wisdom for England to dispose of the
home rule question and all other perplexing
local issues at once and turn its attention to
the East, or it will wake up one of these
fine mornings and find that it is dispossessed
entirely of its Oriental property.
lt is in a line with the wisdom which has
characterized his course since having been
brought into prominence as the leader of
the Knights of Labor that Mr. Powderly
declines to allow his name to be entertained
in connection with the governorship of
Pennsylvania. His words in asserting his
- unwillingness to allow his name to be thus
used go far also towards furnishing an esti
mate of the character of the man. There
-? is more than a possibility that, should he
accept a nomination, Mr. Powderly could
be elected to the chief magistracy of the
Keystone state." But carrying out the fund
amental principles of the order, he declares
that even were he a candidate he should re
fuse to trade upon his relations with an or
der avowedly non-political in its constitu
tion. lie doubtless recognizes what the
rest of the country will readily admit, that
lie can be of more service to the cause of
the:. workingmen as the cool-headed,
far-seeing leader of the Knights of
Labor than lie could be occupying
the executive's chair. It is not often that the
leader ot a movement so far-reaching in its
membership and so comprehensive in its
aims as that of which Mr. Powderly is
the head, possesses in such an eminent de
giee as the present master workman, tho
conservatism and judgment which are sure
to win the sympathy and approval of an
impartial public ami which are necessary to
harmonize the discordant elements existing
in eveiy similar organization. When, then,
such a leader is found aud when his leader
ship lias been weighed in the balance of
public opinion and found far from wanting,
it is both discreet and wise to retain him.
The American people think well of Mr.
Powderly, and they prefer seeing him oc
cupy his present position to venturing upon
the troubled sea of politics, where his present
usefulness would soon be swallowed up.
Deer Park, the place whither the presi
dent lias hied away, with his bonnie bride
to enjoy the bliss of the honeymoon, is one
of the most delightful summer resorts in the
United States. It is situated on the top of
the Allegheny mountains in the western
part of Maryland, near the West Virginia
line, at an attitude of nearly 3,000 feet
. above sea level. It is on the line of the
main stem of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad
and the elegant hotel at Deer Park is owned'
by theß.&O. company. Ex-Senator Henry
G. Davis was the original owner of Deer
Park and is still the proprietor of an estate
of several thousand acres in the neighbor
hood of the famous summer resort. He
sold the land on which the hotel and cot
tages are built to the Baltimore & Ohio
Bailroad company, which commenced im
proving the place in 1873. On the 4th of
July, 1574, the Deer Park hotel was opened
under the management of the railroad com
pany and at once became a popular resort
for the wealthy people of Baltimore and
Washington. A number of private cottages,
some of them very elegant ones, have also
been built at Deer Park, the most notable
being those owned by the late John W.
Garrett, Hon. H. G. Davis, Hon. S. B.
Elkins and ex-Mayor Latroce of Balti
Deer Park is a place where the president
can rest in calm contemplation and poetic
ease. It is situated on a high table land,
from which lie can overlook four great
states of the union. From a prominence
just in front of the Davis cottage a mag
nificent view stretches before the . eye.
A grand natural panorama of moun
tain and valley stretches in all
directions, with nothing to bound the pros
pect except the limit of vision. From this
elevated point one can overlook the states
of Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and
West Virginia. The Davis cottage, whose
hospitalities the president and his bride are
enjoying, is one of the most charming sum
mer houses in the South. It is situated in
the midst of a lovely grove of giant oaks,
and at this season of the year the wide
, stretching lawns and meadows in front of
the cottage are clothed in vestments
of green. The sweet-scented woodbine
creeps wantonly round the casements of
the cottage and decks the sod seats at the
door. A driveway of twenty-live or thirty
miles has recently been constructed through
the park. Streams of limpid water gush
from the mountain top and dash off on
either side some dashing down the east
ward slope and emptying their waters into
the classic Potomac, while others wend
their way down the western slope of the
Alleghenies and find their way into the
mighty Ohio. These mountain streams are
the home of the speckled trout, while
through the neighboring woodlands of the
mountain crest the deer stalks in the free
enjoyment of his vast estate of mountain
area, rock-ribbed as it is and ancient as the
sun. The gobble of the wild turkey and
the drumming sound of the pheasant's
wings as he beats his lonely tattoo at even
tide are familiar sounds at Deer Park.
What a pleasure it must be to the presi
dent to steal away from the cold, heartless
capital, with its forms and dull routine,
its artificial manners and arbitrary rules,
its cheerless pleasures and mirthless mask
ing and find the charm which nature
yields to her votaries in the warbling wood*
land and in the garniture of fields. Of
all the places in the world, Deer Park,
with its great meadows and silent glens,
is the most charming spot in which to
spend a honeymoon. It was just like the
big-hearted proprietor of the Davis cottage
to proffer his delightful summer home to
the president for his use during the honey
moon season, and there is no other place
this side of the green fields and living
waters of Beulah land that the president's
eyes could have rested on more longingly.
Mr. Cleveland's married life commences
under the most favorable auspices that
earth can afford. May his shadow never
grow less nor his joys be dimmed, is the
wish of the great people over whose
destinies he has been called to preside.
A "NEAT .LITTLE SCHEME.
That is a very shrewd combination which
is set forth in another colnmn as having
been arranged between two prominent gub
ernatorial candidates, Messrs. Gi bbs and
Gilman. It is a kind of scheme whereby
each candidate will win whichever way the
election goes, provided the voters are ac
commodating enough to restrict the choice
to these two gentlemen. As the story runs,
when the two candidates go into the con
vention their respective strength will be
thoroughly canvassed. Then the one who
has the smaller number of delegates will
throw his strength to the other, and assure
his nomination. But this magnanimity is
not founded, upon purely* disinterested
friendship, and an unbiased desire that the
interests of the . farmers may be
protected by elevation . to the governor
ship of one of two men so famous
for their unselfish sympathy for tint sturdy
and hardworking class of citizens. It would
perhaps be rather too much to expect 'such
an exhibition of fraternal love in the scope
of modem politics. The matter is expected
to be arranged in a way that will bring a
distin ct and substantial reward to the self
sacrificing candidate. His successful op
ponent is to appoint him oil inspector, a
position which, if it does not carry with it,
as much glory as 'ihe governorship, has cer
tain solid attractions not to be lightly cast
aside. Thus if "it comes about that we
shall say "Governor Gilman," it will fol
low as a corallory that we must add "Oil
Inspector Giebs," and vice versa. It is
certainly a very clever arrangement. The
only question is, .Will the delegates give
them* an opportunity for carrying it into
effect? ; is_B9RBifIHBBB

Despite the semi-authoritative announce
ments which have appeared from time to
time to the effect that Mr. Blame is not a
candidate for the ; Republican presidential
nomination, his home rule speech in Port

that of placing him once more squarely in
the field. Experience has proven that Mr.

sure to have a definite object in view. His

always displayed a wonderful faculty
for looking out for number one
and a certain degree of unscrupu
lousness in his methods of advancing the
iuterests of that individual, whether it is a
matter of sentiment or cents. However that
may be, there no doubt is considerable con
sternation just at present in the houses of
Logan,' Sherman, et al. They find they
will have to be up and stirring if they are to
prove worthy, competitors of Mr. Cleve
land's vanquished opponent. Already
they are badly handicapped by the start
which ho has taken. They may well fear,
therefore, that, unless he develops a lack of
staying powers, Mr. Blame will pass un
der the wire first. And when it comes to a
matter of staying lie has never in the course
of a long and varied political career shown
any tendency to leave or lag so long as an
office was in sight.
OUR AMERICAN JEPTIIE.
Attorney General Garland is a man
who believes in living up to a vow, and has
had occasion to demonstrate the sincerity of
his belief. Mr. GarlanD is one of the
few surviving heroes of Whig politics who
took a vow* never to wear a spike-tail coat
until Henry Clay was inaugurated presi
dent of the United States. He has faithfully
performed his vow. When the members of
the cabinet were invited to •ittendthe presi
dential wedding, it was with the intimation
that they were expected to attend in full
dress. A spike-tail coat is the one essential
feature of a full dress suit. Rather than
violate his vow, Mr. Garland stayed
away from the wedding and took chances of
expulsion from the cabinet.
The Philadelphia pictorial bureau will no
doubt feel highly complimented when it
learns that the picture of the president's
bride (schedule price thirty-five cents, cash
in advance) which is furnished the Minneap
olis Tribune in common with numerous other
equally enterprising newspapers, has elicited
unqualified approval, as our estimable Minne
apolis contemporary states, from the presi
dent. It is these cheering little marks of
commendation which lighten the restless rou
tine of newspaper work. The Globe has not
tho slightest doubt but that the Tribune was
eminently correct in stating that "the presi
dent never saw anything like the picture be
fore," even though he has seen his bride grow
from childhood to womanhood.

MIDST THE MADDING T HEONQ. . .
. Had the author of the treatise ou negative
etlquette.language aud deportment generally,
under tho title of "Don't," been a resident of
St. Paul at the present time,
he would certainly have In
cluded In his book certain
paragraphs on the misuse of
tho French word "nee." A
certain museum in the capi
tal city, in advertising the
appearance of the widow of
the lato Charles Stratton,
better known as Gen. Tom
Thumb, makes very peculiar
use of tho word "nee."
It should be remembered
that Mrs. Tom Thumb bo-j
fore her marriage was
known to her friends and
acquaintances as Miss Lavinia Warren. For
years she was the loving-, tender and traveling
consort of the pigmy military man. After
his death she put ou black and played the
widow for a respectable length of time, at the
end of which she permitted herself to be
taken as tho helpmeet of Count Rosobub, a
small edition of a good-sized man.
The advertisement above referred to an
nounces the appearance of "Count aud
Countess Rosebud, nee Mrs. Tom Thumb."
The misuse of the word Is not confined to
museum advertisements, as it is sometimes
apparent in the society columns of newspa
pers, whose compilers aro supposed to be
familiar with the correct use of such terms.
No one for a moment will question the mis
use of the word in the sentence above quoted.
It will be readily admitted by all that to be
used correctly the maiden name, "Warren,"
of the diminutive little woman, should
have followed "nee," in place of "Mrs. Tom
A very general error in the columns de
voted to society is the use of the word fol
lowed by the entire na.ne of tho person at the
time of her marriage in place of her family
name. For instance the society editor speaks
of "Mrs. L. M. Smith, nee Louisa M. Oliver,"
instead of "Mrs. L. M. Smith, nee Oliver."
The dissolution of partnership existing be
tween Brugh & Truman, the proprietors of
the Ryan, and the possible retirement of the

to each other.
According to Mr. Truman he was passing
through Chicago from New York to Kansas
City, to look after a hotel at the latter place.
It was in the winter of 1884-5. On reaching
Chicago he ascertained that, the westward
bound roads were blockaded with the snow
and were unable to send out any trains.
To while away the time he visited a friend
connected with a hotel publication and from
the latter learned that Dennis Ryan of St.
Paul was looking for a tenant for the Ryan
which would be opened the following sum
mer. He also learned that Mr. Brugh of Bos

A Canadian Gets a Dose.
Chicago, June 3. The Canadian steam
barge Nipigon arrived here to-day in a sink
ing condition and under circumstances
possessing peculiar interest in view of the
clashing between American and Canadian
marine interests. She was loaded with stone
from Vest Island, Lake Superior, for this
city. The Jaw requires foreign vessels enter
ing American waters :to stop at ' the first
United States port on their routes and obtain
permission to proceed from the collector
thereof. Capt. Conlan of the Nifigon says he
experienced a heavy gale and his vessel
sprung a leak so badly that it became neces

her afloat; that he made all haste to make
this port, not daring te stop at either Macki

lest his vessel might go to
the bottom with all on board. The penalty for
the violation of this law ,is the forfeiture of
the vessel and cargo. C_pt. Conland to-day

except to enforce the law, but advised him to

A Remarkable Escape.
Special to the Globe.
Galveston, Tex., June The arrest
of a slick, daring fugitive was effected last
evening, eight miles .down Galveston island.
Dick Lacouse is the prisoner's name.?, He
is wanted at Gloucester, Mass., for jump
ing his bond in a case of aggravated as
sault. Lacouse has an interesting history.
He is 3'_ years of age, a perfectly trained
athlete aud one of the best swimmers,
boxers and pedestrians m the country. He
came here ten months ago and opened a
small restaurant. He was recently
joined by Maud Edson, the very
woman whose life he attempted in Glouces
ter, for assaulting whom he gave .2,000
bonds. His bondsmen • traced him to
this city a month ago, and M. J. Healy,
a shrewd officer, was detailed to bring
Lacouse back to Gloucester. Healy ar
rived the first week in May, quietly ar
rested his man and took him aboard the
steamship San Marcos. Healy had been
warned that Lacouse was a remarkable
swimmer, so he ironed his man and chained
him to his berth. After the San Marcos
put to sea, the kind hearted detective un
shackled Lacouse and allowed him to walk
about the ship and play cards with the pas
sengers, none of whom knew the man was
a captured fugitive. The San Marcos
stopped off at Newport News May 8 for
coal. Healy again shackled his prisoner,
but that evening as the steamship was
rapidly leaving the outer roads, where
the sea was very rough, Healy unchained
his companion, who soon became engrossed
in a game of cards, Healy going above to
enjoy a cigar. Five minutes later a passen
ger joined Healy and informed, him the
card party had broken up, as Lacouse had
quit the cabin. Healy immediately returned
to the cabin, searched everywhere, but all
to no avail. For the first time in his life the
detective found his man
TOO SLICK FOR HIM.
Capt. Burrows ordered the ship's officers
to search the San Marcos from keel to
masthead, which they did, but no prisoner
was found. They were eleven miles from
land when this occurred. Every one sup
posed Lacouse had drowned himself in a
foolhardy attempt to reach land. Healy
proceeded to New York and reported the
extraordinary escape, which created a sen
sation in police circles. The first knowl
edge local officers had that Lacouse had
survived his marvelous leap was last even
ing, when his pseudo wife,
Maud Edson, appeared at the of
fice of Chief of Police Jordan and swore
out a warrant, charging that Lacouse had
again attempted her life and she was living
in mortal dread of him. She divulged his
hiding place down the island. It seems
that he has been coming to the city late at
night and visiting the woman. Chief Jor
dan and four mounted officers started down
the island this afternoon. Lacouse saw
the cavalcade in the distance, guessed they
were alter him, and down the island he
flew. The officers followed, their horses
taxed to the utmost to overtake the runner.
The chase continued five miles along the
seashore and Lacouse was finally captured
under a farm house. He says it took him
five hours to swim eleven miles in the
dark off Newport News. The cur
rent was running four knots an hour.
It was the most perilous venture he had
ever undertaken. He says he saw Healy
and the officers of the San Marcos flash
their lights about the decks and over the
side of the ship looking for him. He was
laughing at them from the dark water iv
the distance. After reaching land and dry
ing his clothes he took a train for the south,
and was back in Galveston ten days after
his escape. It is believed he threatened to
kill the Edson woman, suspecting her infi
delity. He declares, however, he would
not harm her. Healy, of Chicago, will
probably be detailed a second time to land
his formidable prisoner in New York.
Anarchists Admitted to Bail.
Chicago, June 3. This afternoon States
Atty. Grinnell and his assistants met Capt. ,
Black and Mr. Zeister of counsel for the
indicted anarchists in Judge Rogers' court
room in order to fix a sum for bail for Os
car Neebe. States Atty. Grinnell said in
dictments had been returned against Neebe
for murder conspiracy and riot. As re
garded every other person mentioned in the
indictment for murder, the state would
object ab initio agaiust each and every one
of them beingjadmitted to bail, but by agree
ment with counsel Neebe was made an ex
ception. Capt. Black made an appeal in
favor of Neebe and was followed by Attor
ney Zeister, who charged that the siates
attorney had no confidence in his case, or
lie would not have admitted Neebe to bail.
Mr. . Grinnell resented the insinuation.
Judge Rogers said: "After mature delib
eration I have made up my mind
to mit (.scar Neebe to bail
as follows:" On each charge of
roits 000; on the conspiracy in
dictment 82,500; on the murder indictment
$12,500. As there are two indictments for
riot or inciting to riot it will make his total
bonds SIT. OOO. This I do at the suggestion
of the states attorney and under his agree
ment with counsel. In order to save time
and to simplify matters all the parties who
are indicted for conspiracy will be admitted
to bail on each charge in the sum of 32,500.
Each case of riot will be admitted to bail in
the sum of 5i. 000."
A copper bomb abont twelve inches long,
fully charged and operated by clock work,
was found under the sidewalk in front of
Thomas Griefs saloon, 54 West Lake
street, yesterday, by Lieut. Bowler. The
works were going when the officer dis
covered it. but he lifted it very tenderly
and took it to the Central station. It is
supposed by the officer that the machine
was left there by one of the numerous per
sons of alleged socialistic tendencies, who
for months past have made the saloons
their head quarters.

Dedham, Mass., June 3.— Annie Riley,
daughter of Patrick Riley, one of the pret
tiest girls in town, has been missing since
Monday evening. She had been employed
by Mr. Ward Larapson on River street.
She visited her home on Monday evening.
In returning to her place of work about
8:30. she started to make a short cut across
a cemetery and through a lonely field
skirted by woods. She has not been seen
since she turned off the street into the
cemetery. George Moore, who has been
stationed in the cemetery to watch the
flowers placed upon the graves of the sol
diers, says just before the 9 o'clock bells
rang on Monday evening he saw the dim
outline of two men as they leaped
over the wall which surrounds the
cemetery on the opposite side from
where he was. ? Then he heard
loud voices for a moment and sounds as of
a struggle. He did not see anything of
Miss Riley. The janitor at the court bouse
said that on Monday evening he heard an
outcry in the direction of the cemetery and
a moment afterward a team drove rapidly
by the court house. Kiverplace, where she
lived, leads directly to the banks of the
Charles river. A search along the river
front was made to-day, but no trace or in
dication that the young lady visited the
river could be .found. A report circu
lated that a young man with whom Miss
Riley kept company was missing was with
out foundation. A sister of the missing
girl visited her room at Mr. Sampson's this
afternoon and found her clothes and other
articles undisturbed. Her trunk had been
broken open and her month's wages, bank
book and other personal property belong
ing to her were gone. All the police here

lis .was examined before Commissioner Tuft
to-day, and though he denied his guilt, the
evidence is very strong against him. Dr.
Pyle had sworn out a warrant for his arrest
for cattle stealing,' and this is supposed
to have been the motive for the crime. On
the morning aforesaid Stevens went to Dr.
Kyle's home, and with an ax attacked the
occupants, the doctor, his wife and a hired
man named Dyke, one at a time, and left
them all for dead. He then went to the
house of Mrs. Kerr, who was supposed to
have considerable money in her possession,
and succeeded in killing her grown
son and one Lewis Winters, dispatch
ing them all with the same bloody
axe. Suspicion was fastened on him from
the fact that ha borrowed a horse the day
before and the next morning the saddle
blanket was found near Pyle's home and
also tracks where he had hitched the horse.
A rag was also found near by which
was identified as one worn by Stevens
around his foot, and when lie was arrested
its mate was found on the other foot. He
was captured by United States Deputy
Marshal Andrew Norwood and a posse of
citizens. Commissioner Tufts committed
him for trial, and his hanging is a foregone

Special to the Globe.
Detroit, Mich., June 3.— The death of
Andrew Sheeler, found dead in bed, is re
garded with great interest by the physi
cians. Although there is no evidence of
foul play, they are unwilling, under the cir
cumstances, to say that he came to his
death from natural causes. What puzzles
them most is the peculiar sickening and
drowsy sensation felt by Airs. Sheeler when
she first awoke. This, coupled with the
finding of Mr. Sheeler dead with a cloth
over his face, has led to the theory that
some subtle, poison or drug was used on
the husband and wife. The latter aroused
from its effects, and getting out of bed en
countered the intruder, when she was
struck upon the forehead. Sheeler's stom
ach was turned over to Dr. E. J. Clarke to
make an analysis of its contents. His ex
amination thus far has revealed no evi
dence of poison. A vial of ether was found,
but there was no evidence of its use by the

L ouisville, Ky., June 3.— Twenty

an unprovoked murder and Anderson
fled the state and disappeared,
a short while ago a man 40
yeas old, haggard and worn, returned to
the scene of the crime, which had almost
been forgotten, and gave himself up, say
ing he was Osborne's slayer. He was dis

out and the case has been called for trial.

Evansville, Ind.j June 3.— Details
have arrived of a terrible murder commit
ted in Stevensport, Warrick county, near
the line of Spencer county. Dr. Agie, a
prominent physician of that place being
killed by John L. Gentry. The quarrel
originated in the heat of a political discus
sion, during which Gentry drew a bowie
knife and cut Agie's throat from ear to ear,
the victim living only about five minutes.
The murderer managed to escape. It is
probable that if caught he will be lynched
without further ceremouey.

Wicked Oity of Chicago.

Fair Poker Gamblers — Scaring: the
Clergy--A Bride Devotion.
There are perhaps, a dozen women be
longing to upper tehdom who are hopelessly
addicted to opium and have been for ten
years. One of these victims moves in the
best society. As it is she doesn't care for
anything but the poppy, to which home,
husband and friends are sacrificed. To
society she is an interesting invalid, to her
family a disgrace and to her husband a source
of incalculable annoyance and humiliation.
Another woman, who is also well known,
is indebted to her popularity for the vice to
which she is a slave. In continual demand
and possessed of but slight strength she
took the drug to stimulate her for the
duties of hostess and soon found herself un
able to dispense with its use. Her husband
positively forbade the purchase by her of
more opium. He further restricted her by
threatening to discharge any of the servants
known to make any purchases in any drug
store without first consulting with him.
For a time his wife drove to remote ding
stores and made her own purchases, but it
did not take her long to learn that the pres
ence of her elegant coupe in a street like
Archer avenue or Centre would arouse
suspicion and eventually lead to her ident
ity in spite of her early hours and heavy
A MEDICAL ACCOMPLICE.
She spared herself all this annoyance by
quietly confiding to her physician, from
whom she received her first instruction, the
dilemma in which she was placed and de
manding that he procure her the stimulant.
This was six years ago, and ever since
the physician has been at her mercy, al
though his fees from this patient alone are
sufficient to sustain him without any other
practice. It is said that this woman's vin
aigrette is filled, not with perfume, nor
Arabic salts, but with opium, which she
takes as soon as she enters her carriage en
route for a party or entertainment, the
groom being directed to protons the ride
twenty minutes unless the distance is suffi
cient to consume that amount of time. Her
vagaries are said to cost her husband an
average of .300 a week and to his outraged
affection and homeless fireside his premature
age is due. *
Another beautiful lady, who twelve years
ago married for money and found the cost
dearer than she had expected, is under the
influence of the same fatal drug all the
time her husband is likely to be at home.
She is rarely seen in society with him, and
would gladly hire an assassin to put him
out of the way if she were not afraid of de
The amount of drinking in high life is
simply immense. Women who do not have
it in their homes, and are afraid to have
their alcoholic drinks smuggled in, are as
regular as they dare to be in their visits to
the fashsonable restaurants. At these
places, for instance, these wine bibbers
have their very fears anticipated and
their champagne cocktails and sherry
punches are served in a Japanese
teapot with deep but narrow cups of thick
dark ware, which by reflection will make
the liauor of light color in appearance.
Here ladies will sit and drink as much as
they dare, leaving untouched the toast or
wafers, which are only ordered for effect :
Nobody would ever guess the contents of
those innocent looking teapots. The diners
have only to play with a wafer in case of
any intrusion and accidentally spill some
perfume from their cut-glass bottles to
neutralize a possible lingering smell of
alcohol. The women who drink in this way
are not vulgar in the common significance
of the term; but to drink wine openly in a
public restaurant, however select, would
be to indorse their own expulsion from so
ciety. Some very sad stories are told of
this class of women, whom stress of cir
cumstances or animalism has so debased.
HE DRUNK, SHE IN TEARS.
Not long ago the degenerate son of a
wealthy foundryman married a beautiful
young lady of twenty, who loved him so
much that she believed firmly in her ability
to reform him. She was refined, but poor
and ambitious. The young pair visited his
mother, who did not look with affection on
the son's choice of a companion for life —
an opinion in which the rest of the family
concurred. For the sake of appearances,
the naughty mother-in-law sent out cards
for a reception, to which everybody re
sponded but the groom and his young
bride, the former being in his room drunk
and the latter with him in tears. Although
the mother's excuses seemed plausible
enough on the surface, the belief prevailed
that there was a skeleton in the closet of
very recent arrival. That night the bride
received her first lesson in intemperance,
and the practice has been kept up
with fatal assiduity. The young husband's
interest in a foundry necessitates his pres
ence in the office from eight to four, and
all the rest of his time he spends in his
room, which contains a well-furnished
chamber buffet. As the supply is con
stant there is nothing to take the wife from
the apartment where she has lived in seclu- .
sion ever since ISSO. Her mother-in-law's
pride is all the defense she could wish, but
"indisposed," "not at home,"' or "en
gaged." is the only acknowledgement that
any of her friends' calls have received since
WOMEN GAMBLERS. '
It is a well-known fact in the ministry
that in Chicago women will not tolerate
being talked to about the well-known vices
of society. More than one member of the
cloth has had his series of rich people's mis
doings brought to a sudden close by a letter,
or letters, the tone of which convinced him
that it would be jeopardizing his pastorate
to continue the tirade. The result is that
the women who live in the madding whirl
of fashionable life and yet who are identi
fied with ail the fashionable churches in the
city, tolerate no reproof, and the growth of
their ranks is something incredible. Gam*
bling is the lesser of three or four vices,
since it is limited to the short racing season
and the wagers are generally small. Poker,
however, is a favorite game, and there are
rumors of scores of well-known wives and
widows who play for high stakes and pinch
their household accounts in order to save
money with which to meet their debts of
honor. Most ot the gambling is done
in the afternoon, when the husband is not
home. The^rgus-eyed nurse girl and the
children are sent out for a drive, and from
noon till 1 or 2 o'clock the game of draw is
played for all it is worth, scarcely half an
hour being spent for lunch. Speculators,
commission men. merchants and bankers
are not more frequent at these quiet
gaming lunches than lawyers and doctors.
