Joan Flanagan was before Magistrate
WivLl yesterday on complaint of Stone
Mason's Union No. 7, of which he. is
financial secretary. The trouble grows
out of Flanagan refusing to surrender
the b.ok when they were called for by
tbe union, tbe auditing committee having
examined them and reported a difference
of something in the neighborhood of $12
between the financial secretary's and tbe
corresponding secretary's books. John
Looney conducted the case for the union
and Mr. Flanagan pleaded his own case
and at times became grandiloquent. His
cross t lamination of John Littig on the
witness stand was somewhat animated
and reiiched a climax when Ltttlg told
Attorney Flanagan that it he had him
down stairs he would punch his head,
which invitation Flan agan at once pre
pared to accept, but quiet was again
restored by the court's orders and the
case proceeded without other serious in
terruption. It consumed nearly all the
afternoon and resulted in the magistrate
ordering Mr. Flanagan to produce the
books ic court.

There was a motherly lookir.g old lady
sitting in the midst of her bundles at
the Grand Central depot yesterday, when
a man with a grip sat down beside her
and began to read a newspaper. She
eyed him pretty sharply for a few inin
ntes, and then inquired:
"Any great news in the papers to
day?' "Nothing very extraordinary," he re
plied. "See anything in there from White
hall'" "Not yet"
'Tin from Whitehall, or purty near
there. Bin down here visitin my sister.
Haven't bin here but two weeks, but it
seems a hull year. Only got one letter
from Joseph; and about all he 6aid in
that was tnat be took his pen in hand to
inform me that he was well, and he hoped
these few lines wonld find me the same,
which they did. I'm a little worried.
Don't find any item there about a house
or barn burning up near Whitehall?"
"Joseph was breaking a colt when I
came away. Don't see anything abont a
farmer getting his neck broke or being
kicked to death?"
"Nothing of the sort, ma'am."
"Anything abont any one falling down
a well or off a haymow?"
"Joseph is awful reckless, but mebbe
he's got through all right. Anything
abont a mad dog biting anybody, or a
gun busting and blowing a man's head
off while he was shooting at a hawk?"
"Nothing whatever. I think yon will
get home to fiDd everything all right."
"I hope so, but two weeks is a long
time to be away, and I'm naturally given
to worry more or less. I expect the pigs
have got into the garden two or three
times, and I 'spose the colts have broken
ont agin and Joseph has left the cellar
door open every night, but if it's no
worse I shall be a thankful woman."
"Here is an item about a farmer run
ning away with his hired girl while his
wife was absent," said the man, as he
turned the paper.
"Do tell! Wall, that don't skeer me
any. I didn't leave no hired girl there,
and Joseph is so awful homely that even
the sheep dodge him. Much obleeged to
you. I expect to find things a little
topsy-turvy, but I guess there am t no
call to worry." New York Evening

Tlie Editor Was To Lively lor 'Em.
LEBANON, Tenn., Oct. 20. The Leb

An Interesting Satire.
"By Jove) What a cad. See the way he
carries bis sck."
"Yaaa, and uotice the way he holds his
gloves." . - . " '
"Vans, and he walks like a drayman."
"Gad, he's goin to bow to that get Sor
ray faw the paw gel. Watch him."
"Ahl abl What an awful duffer. If I
couldu't bow better than that I'd stop at
'Yaas..: So would L"
'Let's go to the club and sit down; that
sort of thing makes me awfully tired."
Tlie man criticised was conspicuous, and
it was all because he hadn't sufficient
knowledge of culchaw and depawtment.
He was faultlessly dressed, but that didn't
save him. Whether to take soup from the
side or from the end of a spoon is a mat
ter of culture, but whether to carry, tlw.
gloves with the fingers forward or with t) e
fingers buck is a matter of culchaw.
Kverybody that is anybody knows all
about culture -and deportment, but cul
chaw and depawtment include tbe little
niceties of manner and conduct about
which many people have a great deal to
learn. Without culchaw and depawtment
it Is impossible to be a swell.
A swell mnst walk at times, no matter
how many broughams and horses he may
have, and it is no. more than proper to K've
the walk precedence. Tbe walk is an ac
quirement a man gets very early In life.
but be never begins to walk in tbe proper
way until he is proposed for membership
in a Kood club. This is the way: Lees
stiff, no elasticity; body well forward, no
elasticity; head well back, no elasticity,
and steps about two and a half feet long.
Of course there are variations. Going to
a funeral the man about town should walk
briskly and as if be enjoyed it. Thereby
he demonstrates his perfect repose of man
ner and shows that it is not influenced by
mere external circumstances. Going to a
wedding be should walk slowly and look
bored and thoroughly convinced that mar
riage is a failure. '
In entering a ballroom the walk may he
elaborated to almost any extent. A man
should wear his evening walk just as he
wears lus evening clothes, for the occasion.
Then there are variations of the walk
aside from those of formality and stiffness.
The most noticeable of these is that em
ployed when the expert walker walks with
a "gel." When thus agreeably employe
be should invariably face her and walk
sideways like a crab. This will at first be
found rather difficult, but practice makes
perfect, and the gel who will not put up
with being stepped on a few times and
bumped with a pair of unaccustomed knees
a few times has not a proper appreciation
of culchaw and depawtment. In walking
with the gel the student should care
fully avoid keeping step. The step to
gether is for common soldiers, convicts.
clerks going together to business and cads
who disregard culchaw and depawtment.
Geutlemeu never walk in step. It shows
too much premeditation and thought, and
is not in keeping with the mental idleness
Which should characterize a gentlemen.
IMPOIITANCR OF THK BOW. - 1
Walking having been considered, it is
now necessary to take no standing still
and sitting down. To describe these ac
complishments it is perhaps sufficient to
say that in standiug the real swell should
look as though he would prefer to sit, and
in sitting be should convey the impression
that he would prefer to stand. If he does
this he can hardly fail to look sufficiently
Now comes the bow, a most useful ac
complishment, in fact the most useful one
in connection with culchaw and depawt
ment. A man of real culchaw should be
able to insult a man grossly with his bow
upon occasion, and be should also be able
to bow so that tbe bo wee would not hesi
tate about lending bim $100 without secu
rity. This bow is most difficult.
AH bows may be divided into two classes
the short bow without raising the hat,
which may be either insulting or pleasing.
and the Igng Lord Chesterfield bow for
'gels," which may convey either mere
recognition or the deepest regard. For the
short bow merely snap the head. If it is
intended to be insulting the person to be
insnlted should be looked at with a sort of
By-Jove-I-don't-see-you-and - I-don't-like-
your-looks" stare, and then the head
shoultl lie snapped very short.
lo please it should be moved slower and
with a smile. This can hardly fail to
plea'. The long Lord Chesterfield bow is
much more laborious, but it is also much
more impressive. To accomplish it grasp
the bat firmly by tbe front of the rim;
lmagiue a fly about eighteen inches from
the tip of the nose and try to bit it with
the crown of tbe hat. then smile as if in
exultation at having hit it. and as the hat
is replaced look at the bowee for approlwv
tion aud appreciation of the dexterity dis

Varying regard for the bowee may be in
dicated by the enthusiasm shown in hit
ting at the fly. It is well to practice in the
Shaking hands is much less a part of
culchaw aud depawtment than it once was.
it is too much work. Men don't do it very
much, and as a rule when an acquaintance
offers to shake hands it is qnite proper not
to see his baud aud to merely bow. If it
is an undesirable acquaintance, look at his
baud as though there was some doubt
about its cleanliness or as though his
gloves were not iu good taste, and then de
liver the stony stare aud short bow. It is
sometimes necessary to shake hands. For
instance, a prospective father-in-law may
be an old timer and used to shaking bands.
If he is to be humored it should be done
daintily. Tbe hand should be presented
on a level with bis npper shirt stud, and
tbe motion of the shake should be straight
up and down. "
Fewer well dressed and culchawed men
carry walking sticks now than formerly.
If a stick -is carried it should not be walked
with. It should be light, but should im
press the ieople that it is heavy, aud that
the man of culchaw is tired of carrying It
It should hang bead down and back prefer
ably in the left hand. Tbe gloves should
always be carried with the fingers forward.
Tbe few rudiments of culchaw and de
pawtment here given may seem trivial to
the uninitiated, but tbey are in reality im
portant aud wholesome. They have helped
men into society. They have alxo got men
laughed at and disliked, but this' is be
lieved only by those ignorant persons wbo
are envious because they hare no knowl
edge of culchaw and depawtment New
