Inanarrnln Wltneaaed by the

and Trathfal Description mt Promt
Washihoton, March S. I arrived
here after a cold and muddy ramble of
Dine days, and entered tbe city on the
Alexandria turnpike, bringing my upper
with me. Tbe rest of tbe show it not
expected for several days yet, as tbe fat
woman is said to be mired In a slough
near Martinsbureh. So I am having a
few days to myself and am spending tbem
by looking over the capital of a great
nation at a time when her pulse is at
fever beat. Washington claims to have
two hundred thousand people, including
congressmen, hack drivers and the coN
ored gentlemen who charge you $3 for
taking you to a place where vou can be
robbed of 40 more. Mr. Harrison is
stopping at tbe Arlington hotel, but I am
stopping elsewhere. I did not think it
wise to put up the same place, as it is
apt to cause talk and also tbe e mploy of
an extra deputy she iff Another obsta
cle Is the fact that hoard there is from S
to $10 a day and impossible to get at
that. As it is, I am living high, having
aecwrea a cot in tbe nail way on the fifth
floor of the Drover's hotel. Last night I
gave one pillow and half of my com
plexion to the bug9, but tonight I
shall fare worse, as seven hurntnbeincs
have been assigned to the saiae cot and
another invoice of insectivora has ar
riven. 1 ne wasnmgton buy is a very
peculiar creature, lie is very difficult to
tame unless caught when young and kept
under tbe influence of chloroform. By
this means be can be gradully introduced
within the pale of civilization, but after
all a pail or kerosene oil and a slow
match is much better. When I arose
mm morning, one 01 me Dues was just
disappearing over tee hamsters with my
cravat on, and it was with the utmost
difficulty that I could persuade him that
a mistake had been made. When I spoke
to the clerk about it, he softly said: "At
1945 sir; yes, the Pennsylvania depot;
hot water for 21 and a c lean towel for 45;
just four blocks eaM; front! take this
message for 13 and hurry up with that
lunch." This answer satisfied me com
pletely and I retired to the wash room to
wrestle with that famous stuff called
Washington water. Congressmen are
generally supposed to he wier than their
fellows and, indeed, they show it in many
respects, but in none more thnn in their
abstinence from the water served here.
It comes through an hquoduct that cost
a good many dollars, but it wou't stand
wear and tear, or, as the dry goods man
would say, it won't wash.
Sunday I spent by covering tbe town
as well as I could and seeing the princi
pal sights. About two hundred thousand
people were similarly engaged and we
kept bumping into one another. Tbere
were candidates for cabinet offlces.bunco
steerers,, policemen, postmasters, pick
pockets and jays the latter being by far
the most numerous. I ventured to ac
cost one man and he said. "No, thanks,
I don't want to cash a freight bill today."
I then passed on, clothed in silent digni
ty and a mud-stained vest, and deter
mined hereafter to keep my own counsel
and anything elso I could lay my hands
upon. Peunsylvania avenue is the hand
somest street here. It is very wide and
has buildings on both sides. It runs
from the capitol to almost any saloon in
tbe district and is a great promenade for
men wbo want to be consuls or train rob
bers. At the capttol end you strike
about seven hundred coons. Each one
will show you all through the capitol for
a few sesterces or drachm, but when
you get through you give him your coat
and vest and go without dinner. He and
the backmen are the only licensed pirates
in the country, and either one of tbem
could give Capt. Kidd three blocks start
and beat him to the qurter stretch.
I met Mr. Blaine on Pennsvlvania
svenue and stopped to have a few mo
menta chat with him.
"How are tbey comin'?" inquired he.
"Oh, rather slowly. Jcem," answered
"What you after?"
And then I inquired about bis Samoan
policy. He replied that he bad a dis
patch in his pocket which be would send
Tuesday morning to Bismarck, requiring
him to immediately abandon Berlin to
the American consul for a croquet ground
under penalty of haviDg tbe most hor
rible and blood curdling kind of war dc
clared against him.
A few blocks farther down the street I
met Mr. Wm. Windom, a Minnesota gen
tleman of considerable importance. I
hailed him, but he replied that bis shoes
didn't seed sbining at present and he had
no horse I could hold. My opinion of
Mr. Windom is not of the highest order.
I think be is a very much over-rated
man and that tbe president could hive
found some one better fitted to look af
ter the government finances. It is need
less to say that Mr. Windom and I do
not speak to each other.
In tbe corridor of tbe Arlington hotel
I met Postmaster General Dickinson.
He and I were neighbors in Detroit, so
that I had no hesitation in addressing
him. He is given to the side-whisker
habit and looks like an Englishman. He
was gratified to learn that I had no com
plaints to make of tbe way be conducted
his business. Don is a very pleasant
gentleman and I almost felt like borrow-,
ing money of him. If he had felt tbat
way I think we might have come to an
On Saturday I called to pay my re
spects to President Harrison, who was
so successfully Inaugurated yesterday.
He had just dodged a gang of office
seekers and was smoking a cheroot in
the back ball in the fourth story of the

ily, as I pressed bis band . Then he
"That little hand of mine has been
pump-handled four hundred thousand
times since I saw you last in Indianapolis
just four years ago."
And then I remembered.
We bad met in tbe republican state
central committee headquarters in the
Denison hotel, just two nights before the
election. Blaine had been there tbat
day and bad spoken to twenty thousand
people. Harrison himself had just come
in, and tbe leaders were anxieusly look
ing over the last canvass and sending
dispatches conveying instructions to all
parts of the state. I was surprised that
the General remem-inbered the circum
stance ao well, but he explained that be
always remembered a face that be was
surprised to find outside the states prison.
"I hope you don't want anything?"
aid he. Inquiringly.
"Nothing but a cigar," I replied.
"That's easy," answered he, fishing
down In tie vest and pulling out an Ha
vana that must have cost five or ten
Then the president excused himself
and went down to see a delegation of
even hundred citizens who wanted to
be governor of Montana

frequently remarked on the paucity of
mncn routes. Old residents, tell me that

and so a few of us are compelled to suffer
tor toe sins or many. This is one thing
iao not iiae arjout crowds.
An objectionable feature about life in
Washington is the fact that her citizens
have no vote. Her local affairs are ad
ministered by a congressional committee
and those who have had business rela
tions with a congressional committee
know what this means. There is no such
thing here as swapping $8 for a franchise
or going gunning for the colored vole. A
man can't even make an honest laborer's
wages by working at tbe polls on election
day. This goes very hard with some peo
ple, but tbey are sometimes shipped away
in blocks of five to convert Indiana or
some other state where their peculiar tal
ents can shine.
I stood out in tbe rain for seven hours
yesterday trying to see a president inaug
urated, and about all I know of it is tbat
somebody who weighed two hundred
pounds stood on nfe for a few minutes and
wildly waved his hat; then there was a
loud cheer, after which seven hundred
cannon exploded and blew up the atmos
phere for miles around. I'll write more
about it, however, as soon as I can collect
Monday morning I met President Cleve
land. He was president then and I did
not hesitate in calling him so. He was
pleased to see me, in fac) he said that
most anything was a relief from tbe ennui
into which he was plunging. He ins
quired after the rest of the show und said
that Le presumed I was still the principal
freak. He was pained to hear tbat the
living skeleton was laid up with the
measles and listened with alarm to my
statement that tbe bearded woman bad
been sinzed in tbe Brewster house fire.
Tbe president is aging rapidly and when
he left me to say farewell to the nation,
he seemed very much worn and fatigued.
I was presented to his accomplished wife.
Notwithstanding that her hubby is a large
and obese gentleman who has just lost
bis job, she persists in clinging to him
with an earnestness tbat is surprising.
Before leaving Mr. Cleveland the fol
lowing conversation ensued:
"Why am I like a parrot hit with a
pickaxe?" said he.
"I give it up," I replied.
"Because I am about to come off the
perch" be answered, as he jumped up and
cracked his heels .together.
Tfcis is why I have not yet reformed.
The receiving teller at Street & Easy's
saloon Is a very genial and polished gen
tleman who is acquainted with all the
prominent statesmen and tbe Washington
sights. He is a graduate of the Pilsener
brewery and, keeps fully abreast of the
times. He was telling me today of the
habits of some of tbe leading men who
call Washington their home so long as
they can plunder tbe nation. He told
me tbat Senator Edmunds had secured a
situation as a toboggan slide at the ex
piration of his term. He also told roe
that Mrs. Cleveland had refused to liye
with tbe president any longer. In the
light of tbe information I bad before re
ceived I was very much surprised and I
abruptly inquired why.
"Because Mr. Harrison has another
wife" answered he.

A Flaguu of Tigers iu Java.
According to the administ at ion report of
Java recently la d bofore tbe Dutch cham
bers portions of t lat island are being depopu
lated through tig irs. In 18S3 the population
of a village in the- southwest of the Bantam
province was renew sd and transferred to an
island oil the coast in consequence of the
trouble caused to the people by tigers.
These animals ha,-e now become an intolera
ble pest in parte c f the same province. The
total population U about 1300,000, and in 1S77
sixty-one were tiled by tigers, aud in conse
quenco of the dre. id existing among tbe peo
ple it has been proposed to deport the inhab
itants of the vilia ;ee most threatened to other
parts of the count ry where tigers are not so
common, and w lore thoy can pursuo their
agricultural occupations with a greater de
gree of security. At present they fear to go
enywhere near ihe borders of the forest.
The people at present seem disinclined, or
tbey lack the me ins and courage, to attack
end destroy their enemy, although considera
ble rewards are offered by the govermnout
for the destruction of beasts of prey. In 1SS8
the reward for lulling a royal tiger was
raised to 200 florins. It appears also that the
immunity of the tiger is in part due to super
stition, for it is ct nsidered wrong to kill one
unless be attack, first or otherwise does in
Jury. Moreover, guns were always rare in
this particular district, and, since a rising a
few years ago, have been taken away by the
authorities altoge Jjer. London Times.
Varieties of Olives.
The designation of queen has no reference
to size, only the variety, they being round
the others oval in shape. The olives put up
for table use by ti e Bordeaux bottlers are of
several different varieties. The large Spanish
olives, known tc us as queen olives, are
known to the ti ade as padrones Se villas.
These, by the way, are quite a distinct va
riety from the oth vr varieties grown in Spain,
known as mania villas, which are used for
making ojj, and t le gordaUra, having much
more moat but Itssoil. The smaller olives
put up in BordeAox are principally of French
growth and are la own as amelleaux, verdal
les and lueques, the latter called here cres
cent olives on acrx unt of tbelr shape, and are
much preferred 1o any other for table use.
The verdailes ha-e a strong, full flavor, and
are much used for sauoes, to be served with
meat, while the a nelleaux have a little more
oil and loss flavor. There is also a fourth va
riety, known as piobolies, similar to tbe amel
leaux in characttr, but larger and longer.
Olive farcies are amelleaux olives stuffed
with anchovies a:id capers. Asa rule the
American trade prefers the queen olives on
account of their ii and fine appearance, tbe
mailer sue being as large as the largest of
other varieties; bit in Europe the smallar
olives are quite f enerally preferred on ac
count of their flav yr and the finer quality of
th meat. American Analyst.

was then possible to warn the comparatively

The AT ay to Silence a Donkey.
I have no doubt tiat the donkey believes
himself when braying to be executing a vocal
solo of the highest excellence. As some of
my readers may be incapable of appreciating
the song, I will mention a device whereby
the Turks induce tb too vocal donkey to be
silent against his wtl Just as before a cock
crows he finds it necessary to stretch out his
neck to the utmost, so tbe donkey feels him
self compelled to be jin his performance by
holding his nose in tae air and his tail paral
lel with his spine. When, therefore, a Turk
wishes to silence his ionkey he ties a tolerably
heavy stone to the end of the animal's tail
and departs with an easy mind. When the
donkey feels inclinec to bray and begins the
usual preliminaries he finds himself debarred
from placing his tiJl at the requisite angle,
and in consequence ii unable to do justice to
the bravura with wl Ich he was proposing to
favor the world. Rev. J. W. Wood in
