From which we hare every right In conclude that He stoititrh wonhl do honor to an oMrkh. Itnt the Tribunt 1m not been We to swallow tbe Tetnlon Office Imsl mm, mill It guys so much with a vlijor Atxl an emphasis which may fairly be Cftltal welttl. A tlrscrlmlnatlnir, public Will draw the lafcrenee that things In the Pension OiTkle must be rery, very crooked If the TWHme feel ll necessary to make such -r rttttey cmtcryotcr them. Indeed, lite Trttom charges outright rascality ficslnst the Chief of the Board of Ite vlcw, and says that this rascality has been condoned by both the Commis sioner and the Secretary. It Is hardly itippotable thai, this charge can be wholly fimimlless. Aral, In that vtew of the matter, what la to be mtd of Mr. Fpcaker ItKKn's very palpable effort to delay ami embarrass the Investigation? WANTS TO KKFORM 1T3ELF. There Is food for thought, and a good deal of It, In the announcement re cently made from across the water, that the llrltlsh aristocracy, under the Imme diate stirnrvUion of the Queon, Is en gaged In the organization of a move ment to purify Itself. The crying roamials that have dlsgrared many of the Ablest, and Id times past, the most bonouil names In Kttgllsh history, ami tin- lax morals practiced by too largo a cumber of the class from whom better things might reasonably m expected, have alanned an element of the nobltl'y ii.to an elTort to save ltH-lf from the .teclal corruption that seems to be Its ir.rst prominent, as It Is Its most ills reputable, feature. The plan proposed by the dukes and the duchesses, the kids and the ladles, the knights and the damct, to effect this reformation, l to rewrite the rules governing society scd to male them very strict In their provisions. Under theto rules persons who practice vice In any form will be ostracised, unless they show signs of ac tual reformation, in which case en courting recognition will be offered them. The outcome of this movement to enforce In Kngllsh society tbu homely old adago that "handsome Is 83 handsome does," remains to be seen. That tbe intention Is good, no one will deny, nor that there Is a prime necessity fer the movement. Hut tbe sinners to be reformed are as blue blooded as tbe saints who mean to do tbe reforming, and, store's the pity, there seems to be about m many of the first as of the last. IN MISSISSIPPI.

In fnwe ways than one, became a revela tion. Her make up was an inspired epic of r; her rofcr. In singing or peafclng, a lhinW, velvety and dellclon. some thin somewhere between a coo and a tnrgle; her long, sloe black eyes silt In the Ivory puller of her oval face had all the languors of the odalisque in their hair velletl fires; from tbe plcturesiiu-) embrasures of her ragged gown peeped cuives of rhrdlnn perfection, and whSn later fbe slootl coofeseetl In the full glory of lights ami trunks, her shapelv nether limbs were very symphonies and sonnets In silk. The rather chuckle-headed tenor per son who played and sang at Mmto was iubjtctetl to ft course of wholly mad dening amatory proceedings by this so ductlvc young woman that tilled nil the men in tbe audience with a wild desire to Imbrue their hands lu bis gore. He was petted and. patted and cuddled and cooed to till the foolNb shepherd looked more foolish than ever, and the male nudlcnce, ns one man, rushed Insanely forth nt tho tntr'aete to drown their un availing sorrows In drink. The meteotlc and volcanic little Ihitina was none other than Fay Tem plcton. Genius like hers soon found Its billet. In less tlmn n year as the saucy Gttbrkl of the rejuvenated "Kvnneellne" sho was tho sensation and sovereign of New York dudedom. Since then sho hns gone forth compar ing and to conquer and comes back to the city Of that shabby V6wf of six years ago crowned with laurels and encrusted with diamonds. Piw T Ttrnjiltton! Vita L'AmUce! It is with n purpose, that sho Is thus copiously desatlbcd as of that time, for, despite the cynicism of a somewhat famous metropofltan critic, such ns she was then, with nn ndded touch of exotic tnm;xi'nf and ilM4erie, she Is now. It Is not a very wholesome nrU It Is not even sugccstlvc, ns hns been snld of It, because. In sooth, the art, ns truly the nrtlst, loaves hut little to suggest.

"The air hath bubbles as tbe water bath, and these nro of them," might have been written of tbe class of plays, or at least productions, to which tho so called "musical satire" of Mr. Ous Williams and his more or less able, and therefore culpable, companions in crime undoubtedly belongs. The pass ing foible of the day, tbe passing laugh of an Idle hour, It perhaps answers as well the purpose for which it was con structed as anything which could possi bly have been constructed for the pur pose. The humor of tbe modern apart ment home is an alluring theme for the farcical satirist, and baa unquestionably net herein been slighted. Sir. "Williams, as a dialect comedian of approved worth and merit, has long cujoyed too wide-spread popularity for further praise than that bis uerman professor of music is fully up to the mark of bis unvarying excellence. Mr. Kelly contributes no little fun of robust varkty, as the eccentric Irishman, and the Junior, tbe l'eHcmuan, tbe -VniU of all Work, and the other ever present compoaents of apartment house exist ecce, are all done to the life by Messrs.

I believe I have done everything which an editor or publisher ever has to do, from directing wrappers up to writ ing the biography of a President within an hour after his death. This means if the training be continued through many years of life, and If one bo Under a good chief, that one gains, of necessity, the rendr use, at least, of his own language. We newspapor men may write Kngllsh very 111, but wc write It easily and quickly. So that to us, who have been In this business, there is something nmar.lng to hear n clcrcvmnn sar that ho occupied a week In composing a sermon, which was, at tho outside," thirty flvo hundred words In length. One can understand nbsolutc inability to do it at all; but no newspaper man understands bow a man who can do It, can spend thirty-six hours in doing It. If you have to send "copy" upstairs, hour nftcr hour, with n boy taking the slips from you, one by one. as they arc written, and you know that you arc never to sco what you write until you rend It the next day In tho paper, your copy will bo punctuated carefully, writ ten carefully, and It will bo easily rend. That Is one thins. Another thine ebos with it. "You will form the habit of determining whnt you moan to soy be fore you soy It, bow far you wnnt to go and where you want to stop. And this will bring you to a valunblo habit of life to stand by what has bcon de cided. Napoleon cavu the same advice whon ho said: "If you set out to tike Vienna, take Vienna."
