Osr Nation's Capital Leads th World la
Shady Sidewalks Their Effect on
The air of Washington is full , at this
season of year , of a white , downy sub
stance. If you open your mouth to
talk about offices , writes a correspon
dent of 'lliz Cincinnati Times-Star , it
flies into it ; if you wink at a pretty
girl on tho avenue you get it in your
eyes. Itllies-into tlie white house .on
the wings of the wind , and rolls up in
fluffy white balls in tho corners of the
great vestibule through which the dis
appointed oflice-seekers go out from
their-calls on the president It does
not stop there. It penetrates to the
rooms of the private secretaries ,
and fho cabinet-room , and even
theoffice of the president himself.
It attends the cabinet meetings , flies
in the faces of the stately heads
of the departments , and tickles the
noso of the president. It looks like
.down , and to the stranger who is not
P accustomed to the ways of Washington
it to bo down
appears , perhaps coin
r -L ing from tho "downy beds of ease" in
which all statesmen and governmenl
employes aro supposed to spend mosl
of their time. But it is not. It is a
fine cattony substance coming from
poplar trees with which many of the
older streets of the city are lined.
"Cottonwood poplar1' is tho popular
name of this somewhat unpopular
"Tho poplars ougnt not to be an un
popular tree in Washington , " said one
of the park commissioners , talking ol
them to your correspondent. "They
have a good deal to do with making
the city of Washington one of the
healthiest in the country , as it is. " "
"How so ? "
"Because they prevent malaria.
They are a great absorbant , ioth as to
root and leaves , and aro one of tne
best preventives of .malaria that asto
be had. "
"How do they compare with the'eu
calyptus , that have been so extensive
ly used for this purpose-in Italy dn the
last few years ? " . .
"They compare veryfavorably here ,
for the eucalyptus willnot thrivehero
or in any part of the-country , exoepl
probably southern California. We
nave tried them and 'have become sat
isfied that they will not do lor our
purpose. Our climate and soil-do < not
Buit them. "
"Are there many poplar trees in the
city then ? "
"Yes , something in theneighbor
hood of a thousand-of them. "
"And what proportion is . .thioof the
total ? "
"Oh , less than 10 percent. Ton see
we have more than a hundred thou
sand trees in the city of Washington. "
"More than a hundred thousand ? "
"Yes , considerably more ; probably
the total now reaches about 125,000 in
streets and parks. "
"How are they dividedbetween
streets and parks ? "
"About equally. There areover
65,000 on the streets alone , and nearly
or quite as many in the parks. There
are no streets of .any consequence
without trees , and on many of .tlie
wider ones there .are four TOWSof
them , a row on each .side of the side
"How many miles , then , of trees are
there on the sidewalks , about ? "
"Pretty nearly 150 miles of them. "
"And how does thatcompare with
other cities of this country ? "
"It surpasses that of any othercity
of this country , or of the world. " "
"Of the world ? "
"Yes. There is not a city in th'e
world that has as many trees in pro
portion , to its population as Washing
ton has. 1 have made this a study
for many years , pretty nearly all my
life indeed ; but especially in the last
fifteen years m which I'havc been a
park commissioner , and have visited
and obtained statistics from all the
great cities , and 1 am sure that Wash
* ington is far ahead of any of them. "
K. "How long has this accumulation of
health and beauty been going ou ? "
"Well there has been more or less
tree planting here ever since Wash
ington was a city , of course. But the
systematic work , was begun under
"Boss" Shepherd in 1871. There was
some opposition to it at first , of course ,
but everybody sees the value of it
"And the work is still going for
ward ? "
"Yes. We set out six or eight
thousand trees a year , and are able to
furnish many more. We have a hun
dred thousand young trees which we
expect to furnish for the 'flats' as they
are needed. We set out several thous
and of them last season. "
"What is the cost , of the care of
these trees and the yearly adding : to
them ? "
"About $18,000 a year only. We
have studied it carefully , raise our
own trees from seeds or clippings , and
reduce the cost to a minimum.
/ What "do you find the greatest part
of the work of caring for the trees ? "
"The pruning. This is as serious a
task to us as the pruning of the ser
vice is to the new administration. In
deed , no subject connected with their
operations has given the park com
missioners so ufuch concern as the
matter of pruning trees. T ee prun
ing is at all times an operation which
demands skill in the operator , and
can only be safely trusted to experts ,
a class of laborers whose services can
not be secured except at wage rates
"which the present appropriations are
unable to meet. The necessity of
pruning may be referred to three sa
lient reasons. First , that of the re
moval of brnuches and twigs which
iuterfere with tmvel on the sidewalks
and on the streets ; second , the thin
ning out of the heads of luxuriant
trees to prevent their prostration by
heavy gales , a fatality to * which street
treesare more liable than those plant
ed in parks ; and , third , the heading in
or cutting back tlie entire system of
branches on diseased trees , and this is
also a necessity which seldom occurs
with trees in open parks and in open j
spaces. In the aggregate the pruning
is the heaviest item of expenditure in !
the ordinary care of the trees. " . \
"And as to the kind of trees that
you use , are they mostly natives of
this country ? "
"Yes. the most of them. On this
subjective have a good manyinquir *
ies from various cities , and have pre
pared a list of those used by us. The
maples , poplars , box-elders , and lin
dens are the most used , but they do
not complete the entire list by any
means. There are some thirty-live
kinds used on the streets alone , to say
nothing of the large numbers in the
Cruelty to Sullivan.
The sympathies of tender-hearted
people will go out towards John L.
Sullivan , the pugilist. His wife has
commenced proceedings against him.
for a divorce , and in his answer Sulli
van charges his wife with cruel treat
ment and drunkeness. This is indeed
hard. The poor man can have no
peace. His business is fighting , when
away from , and it certainly is discour-
aging , after going about knocking ou
people , and coming home for a little
quiet rest , to be knocked out by a
wifewho ought to love and protect
him. Mr. Sullivan could get all the
fighting he wanted away from home.
He could whip the biggest man and
the smallest waiter girl , could take
possession ot a saloon and throw
everybody out of doors , could unmer
cifully beat his horses on the streets
and any one could see that what he
needed when ho got home was res't ,
but he'was met by a cruel woman who
would whip him. O , cruel woman ,
how could you hurt the man who
came home to bo loved , and to sober
up ? Those who have seen the great
Boston pugilist in the ring , or on the
Tostrum. admired by thousands , and
seen strong men try to injure him , and
seen him knock "them silly , little
thought that whea he got home his
wife would cruelly maul him , knock
him down and sic on him. Had the
-condition of things been known his
enemies would have matched againsc
Sullivan an "unknown , " and placed ,
his wife in front of him when the hour
came for battle , and frightened him
under the ropes and into the woods.
Picture to yourself , gentle reader , that
strong man coming back from New
-Orleans , a victor over Paddy Ryan's
truss , with the laurel wreath on his
brow , and a keg of beer in his stom
ach , wavering as he approached his
own door , trembling at the knees as
he'entered his house , pale and weak as
he meets his-"crueF' little wife , crawl
ing under the bed in abjeot fear as she
lands himone in the ear. She snatches
the laurel wreath from his brow
and in its place puts a wash bowl , and
he begs to be allowed to come out
from under the bed. Of what use is it
for him .to win reputation as a hard
hitter , and have his cruel wife make
him toe the mark at home ? Away
from home he was a. terror , and no
one could stand up before him. After *
-victory he would fill up with cham
pagne to prepare 'himself for the in
evitable licking which he must receive
when he got home. Poor Sullivan !
What a fall it must be for the "brave"
brute to go into court and charge
his little wife with "cruelty. " He
ought tobe made the laughing stock
ofthe wholecountry , guyed by all
the people , the object of the contempt
of nil mankind , and the waiter girl
whom he struck down should empty
slops on him out of a second story
window , until he should call the
police to protect him fromcruelty. "
Amenities of War.
While we were in front-of 'Chatta
nooga it became fashionable along the
picket line -exchange papers. The
plan was for a Con-federate who want
ed a paper to come to the front , shake
a Southern paper as a flag of truce ,
and in this way invite exchanges. The
pickets on either sfde in rhat imme
diate vicinity would cease firing , the
Union soldier would start from his
HUP and the Confederate from his line ,
and they would meet naif way , shake
hands , exchange papers , and" if there
were no officers in sight , sit down and
haw a chat. This had been kept up
for several days , when there came an
order from headquarters that no more
papers should be exchanged. But the
boys , choosing their time for exchange ,
continued the practice against orders.
There came a week , however , in which
no rebel responded to waving , or shak
ing or flutterings of paper or hand
kerchief , and we knew then thator'ders
against exchange had been issued on
that side as well as ours.
But one morning quite early my
partner discovered a man on the rebel
line frantically waving a large paper.
He suggested that we slip away from
the reserve and go out and see what
the man wanted. He took a paper
tvaved it , and we started toward the
rebel in front. When we had pro
ceeded about half way to the point of
meeting the fellow ceased to wave his
paper. We were puzzled at this , but
Inalty concluded that he was down in
v hollow , and we would see him when
ic came up on high ground. So we
.valked on and walked without warn-
ng into : i group of soldiers at the
rebel picket post. The men were just
eady to take breakfast , and after the
irst flurry they joked us a good deal
ibout our extraordinary willingness
, oget into their clutches at breakfast
iime. When we spoke of the exchange
> f papers the officer in charge inform-
; d us that orders were positive against
jxchange , and that all his men under-
itood it. As this was the case , he
ook the position that we had come
villingly into their lines , and that he
: onld not allow us to return. I saw
it once that his men disagreed with
iim , but the question was how we
vere to get away.
My partner , who had been a soldier
n Germany , joined in the jokes at our
ixpense , and proposed that he make
he boys some coffee that was coffee.
Che confederates had a very poor ex-
iuse foi that article , and without more
ido he proceeded to make a kettle of
ioffee , the aroma of which seemed to
ascinate the coffee hungry sharpshoot-
irs. When he had poured the'coffee
nto the cups and had expatiated on
he good it would do the men. he took
ip his rifle and said to me : "Now let
is start for our own line. " I followed j
iim , and not a soldier on that picket j
ipst lowered Ihe cup of coffeo from j
iis lips or looked our way. Chicago

The Famous Notre Dame.
On the 80th of last January the
Sisters of the most noted Catholic ladies'
seminary in the United States , the
Notre lame , at Govanstown , near
Baltimore , "Md. , made public a card
certifying to the beneficial results at
tending Red Star Cough Cure in that
institution. They state that they found
it efficacious alike for relieving coughs ,
oppressions on the chest and irritation
of the throat. Officials of the boards
of health of Brooklyn , Baltimore and
other cities have likewise proclaimed
the virtues of this new discovery , which
is entirely free from opiates , poisons

apples , watermelons , and grapes. John
son won his bet , having eaten a whole
watermelon and a half , one dozen
peaches , twelve bunches of grapes , and
four large apples. Ho was taken sick an
hour after and died the same evening.
