For many teeueratiuiia favorite animals
have beeu common in the French army.
Horace Vernet has painted a pathetic pic
ture of the los of the regiment licking the
hand of a wounded soldier, while there is
an equally popular song describing the ca
reer of a regimental dog that was born at
Cairo and cradled in an empty bombshell,
and which marched to the roll of the drum
from Mount St. Hernard to Marengo, from
Marengo to AuNterlitz, aud from Auster
litz to Madrid, to be ultimately killed by a
mpciit shot at Corunna. The French regi
mental tlo.c; is not infrequently a large poo
dle a fact which disposes of the calumny
that these exceptionally graceful and in
telligent members of the canine race are
not constitutionally courageous. Still it
must be admitted that the ridiculous man
ner in which poodles are ordinarily shaved
is productive to the irreverent of a slightly
ludicrous effect, and it is manifestly in the
highest degree inexpedient that a regiment
on the march should excite the hilarity of
Tliat tl.ia particular kind of dog has not
lost his hold on the military affections iu
England uh well as in France is pleasantly
evident from the number of black poodles
which are kept by the officers of the
guards, although it would be obviously
indecorous for such an animal, with the
preposterous frills and liosses of woolly
hair on his legs and tail, to march at the
head of the corps. It would not s-eem that
many quadrupeds, save ;;oats and dogs,
are eligible as regimental pets, and were
the goat a little more intelligent he might
perhaps prove a very formidable rival to

HENRY CLEWS' BALLROOM.
It Is One of the I iiie.st 1'rivate Apartments
In the World.
No city iu the world, not excepting Lon
don and Paris, can show mere bcautifr.l
and stately apartments in its novate houses
than New York. The ballrooms of New
York are particularly gorgeous.
The Clews ballroom is one of the iwt
beautiful ami artistically perfect rooms iu
America. There is nothing at all like it in
New York, and it will remain a lasting
monument to the skill and taste of the late
John H. Sturgis, of Boston, who was its
The room, wikh is oval in shape and
connects with lue conservatory, is 55 feet
in length, 35 feet in breadth and 25 feet
high. The style of decoration used is a
combination of the Renaissance and Colo
nial, and the colors adopted iu the decora
tions and furniture are white, gold and
The double dome with which the room
is surmounted is the most strikingly beau
tiful thing of its sort that has been at
tempted in New York. The frieze is a
row of dancing Cupids, with garlands of
flowers, not exactly a copy of, but similar
to, the one seen in some of the state apart
ments at Versailles. The first dome, that
adjoining the friezes, is ornamented with
decoration of festoons in a delicate cream,
color on a white ground, and beneath the
points of support for the festoons are me
dallions, each one charged with the name
of a great musician in letters of gold.
The second dome, which springs grace
fully from the first., is also unique and at
tractive in desiiru, and the skylight above
it is covered with a screen of iron, ham
mered into an elaliorate get .metrical pat
tern ami enameled iu white. At night
this is illuminated from behind, aud the
effect produced by the particolored incan
descent rays, iiltered through the screen,
is peculiarly Vriking.
The wainscoting is of white aud extends
but a short distance up the walls and other
woodwork, including the arches of the
four Colonial alcoves, which are let into the
room at its corners aud are also of white.
Over the entrance to the adjoining con
servatory, which is altogether in white
marble, is the musicians' gallery, and this
for delicacy of conception and beautiful
workmanship is worthy of the rest of the
room. The base of the gallery is excep
tionally attractive in design. Its decora
tions are in arabesques aud diapers, and the
series of curves by which it springs out
from the wall to meet the gallery balus
trade is singularly graceful.
The floor is of inlaid wood, highly pol
ished, aud it is an idea) surface for dare
iug. Upon ordinary oeca.-.ciis the room is
used for Pitisic. an 1 ir is furnished with a
grand piacc. of white tnariile. inlaid with
ivory and t;-.:;":, ami a harp. When the
floor is not needed for dancing i;s center is
covered wit!. Gl. ionics r.'.x of tret size
and richness .1 color.

I never think of Mr. Parker without at
the same time recalling Mr. Freeman,
the historian. They squabbled so hope
lessly ov-r the churches which were vis
ited during our archaeological excursions
in Somerset that for peace's sake it was
decided that on these occasions Free
man should t.-tke the inside of the churches
and that Parker should confine his re
marks to tiie exterior part of the building.
Freeman almost. i:i variably ascended the
pulpit, aud therefrom made his observa
tions on the architecture of the sacred edi
fice, not sparing the names of those per
sons who in some cases had carried out
what he deemed an injudicious scheme of
restoration. Then- were those who objected
to being 1eiio;i!)ced from the pulpit in this
arbitrary manner. Eut it were a pity if

the meetings -.i that mutual admiration
