The civil-fcervica reformers ooutinuo
their effoits, nml ono cntmot but mlnilro
their pcisKU'iicy mill tlicli' undoubted
s-nrucstM'ss. Still one grim fact slnmh
out; tliey have lost rather than gnlnel
yiound within the Inst four years.
No doubt many bad results come
from a change of olllco-bolders with
VH'ry change In llw political com
plexion of the dominant party, but the
belief Is gaining ground that tho party
in power should have the prlvllcgo of
doing things In its own way with its own
people, should be libsolutely unham
pered In tho work of conducting tho
Qovcrnmcnt. If tho work bo not well
done a verdict In accoidnnco with
the facts will bo rendered at the next
national election. 'L'Jiero nro n host of
clerks and petty officials who should,
perhaps, hold their places through
good behavior, but when a placo Is of
any Importance it Is but Justice that the
dominant party should control it abso
lutely, slnco the dominant party will bo
held responslblq for Its management.
One source of weakness of the civil
mtvIco reformers is that they are about
the most unmngnctlc group over at
tempting tin inlluenec on thu course of
political events. They nro dyspeptic.
They take slight part In any political
fray, when their own pet Ism Is not an
issue, and they are, ns n rule, of tho
opinion that the pace tho" country Is
waking toward tho dcmnitlou bow.
wows is fcomethlnj phenomenal. They
are a collection of rcspoctablo pessi

held In much esteem.
Tho civil service rcformem have their

admit that Jackson's whole character en-corn-aged

Ho added In further conversation that
political purlieu are necessary to keep
Mielety sweet. Tho danger of tho
present situation la that tho pcoplo nro
too largely silent. Ho mid of this
period of rich men'a ndvent Into poli

not nicu-ly stifles tho independence of

CHICAGO'S AUDITIONS.

grown until the city limits, like those ot
the old city of Loudon, nro by no means
the llmlt.s of the city, and the outlying
portion of the town on nil sides Is made
up of business and residence districts,
under village government. In other
words, Chicago consists of n "core," so
to Bpcak, under city government, whlln
this "roro" Is encircled by a tow of
vllla-es. It is impossible to tell with
out consulting authorities where the
clt3,cndsand tho village system begins.
It is a bad arrangement, and this whole
densely populated district should havo
been under ono city government long

Chicago will bo about as compact n
municipality ms any In the country.
There Is no denying tho great Lake
city's enormous and continued growth.

Shah ot Persia will visit England this sum'

ruler spent the summer once beforoln Orcat

iN INCIDENT.
In a shadowed church,
lu tho holy hour,
Of tho dear Lord's sacred day,
When summer gardens were a-(lowcr,
And summer winds at play,
Do you remember f
You turned and smiled,
And gave me roies, three,
So fair, so sw cct to soo V
Ah, llttlo you know -
Thnt within my heart
Were sonowfnl thoughts that day;
Longings to seo tho dear ones, gone
Heavenward, leagues away,
Your beautiful thought,
Your tender smile,
Your sweet red roses three,
Lifted tho cloud from me.
Tho rich red roses, faded alas, '
Faded as rotes must.
The fragrant leaves with their perfumed
breath,
Turned luto daintiest dust;
But the smile lives on,
Ami the sweet intent
That brought heaven's light to mo,
And I never can think of you apart
From tha rich red roses three,
The roses you gavo to me.

THE TOWN'S PHOTOGRAPH.
Mo j c than twunty yours ago, Ihough
not much more thnu that, Ami'tlca was
turned topsy lurvy by thu advent of
Lydla Thompson nml her Hngllsh
blondes. In that day It was not con
shifted such good form to go to see
clotlielcvmess depleted upon (lie stage,
nml Lydla and her company were hailed
with that peculiar delight which chat''
nctcrlrrs nfforded opportunities for
doing those things openly, which puri
tanic Ideas had restricted 'to the domain
of quasl-secreey, and everybody went
to see Lydla, ntul liked the display
villh a ttrong like. Then Lydla be
came Immensely popular and grew rich,
ns she was already beautiful. For sev
eral years she hail the swing; then she
returned to Kngland and lost all her
money by running a theatre of her own.
Tlirco years rtgo she came back, and It
was llko n resurrection, for sho had
been forgotten by tho young theatre
goers, or at leat remembered only as
Ort'ck plays are remembered, Iiut
Lydla is not old, nor Is she grown
ugly, Hhu greeted Tim CittTio man
with it gush and u glrltshncss tho other
evening that were captivating, nnd at
close rango sko showed: very few of tho
crow's-feet of tho (int-slng years, nnd In
response to a lefcrence to some Of tho
old players with her Harry Docket
nnd Pauline Mnrkhanf and Ada Ileau
mont sho sighed a little, then smiled,
and nulling forwnul a bunch of her
beautiful blondo hair from under her
hat, she snid: "Hut tho ashes arc not in
(Ids yet," nor does It seem that they'
will ever be, for she Is as plump jind
youthful In appearance as she was In
other days. Situ Is much Interested in
her daughter, who was with 3llss
Anderson, but who comes out next year
under her own manager, playing
such parts as Jultrt and that class.
JIlsS Thompson's weakness Is a Hootch
terrier about as big as a wad of
sausage, named "Tykle, ' and Tykic Is
a terror as well ns terrier. She barks
at her mistress' visitors with a light
soprano barkf and will not bu quieted,
and she has ficqlicntly sent her from
hotel to hotel, in quest of one where
canines are allowed miiuc rights, for
Jiis.s Thompson goes to no hotel where
Tyklo cannot go. Tho averago man
would drop "Tyklo" Into tho soup ery
early, but he had uot better say so to
Miss Thompson.
On the Presidential train to New
York one or tho newspaper correspond

Supreme Court. It was toward It
o'clock a. m. when the correspondent
was assigned to his car and berth with
out disturbing tho sonorous slumbers ot
tho judicial 'dignitaries, which ho de
scribed thu next morning as follows:
"Chief .TuMlce Fuller snored with a
mellifluous cadence which rosg nnd fell
llko the notes of a church organ, mid
then wafted away Into broken stanas
through Ids mighty mustache."
"Jusllco Blatchford's snoro was a sub
dued but steady How of judicial
euphony."
"Hx-Justlct! Stiong's snoro was stately
nnd dignified, nnd continued on an ovgu
course, with no dissenting notes."
"Justice Field's snore was a grand
old melody, with a rising inflection at
times like tho waves of tho Vacllie
rolling through tho Golden Gate."
If there Is any hotel man In town who
doesn't want to be licked by an Irato

gave It to lilm and nfter some effort ho
succeeded In writing ".las Hell" on It.
Stockham marked It "U p. in." and
sent It up. In a few minutes tho guest
came down in tlio elevator and n lit
of anger. "By thunder," ho said to
tho clerk, "what do you mean by sciuL
ing this gas bill for fl) up to mo? 1
haven't been burning any gas to speak
of a'nd you've got no right to stick mo
In any such style." For a mlnuto
Stockham was frightened, then he saw
it all, and explaining thnt It wasn't

subsided and apologized.
A bluck-und-tan dog, slightly lame,

tho Htstilct jail, "when, In icallty, there

Apropos of tho racing at Ivy City, an

"It looked as If tho pool-rooms were
at tho mercy of thco pcoplo," remarked
tho operator. "There was no redress
at tho hands of thu law." Hut tho
remedy is very simple All tho pool

Mr. nml Mrs. Elliott F. Shcpard
gave a dinner party last evening in

LKcc. Tho guests assembled ot 7 o'clock.

NOT -UNLIKE OTHER MEN.
Washington had false teeth made of
ivory the upper plato carved
out Of one solid chunk; tho lower had
tho teeth l Ivctcd on. Tho upper plate,
swelled and split from moisture and
gave him great pain.
He wore a No. 8 boot.
He frequently spelled God with a
small g.
Hu preferred to drink beer with Ids
meals, nnd usunllyhad a silver pint cup
of that beverage at his plate.
Tho last time ho was weighed, In the
summer of 1709, ho tipped tho scale at
200J. His usual weight was 220.
Ho suffered all his life with weak
lungs, having had a scvero pulmonary
affection In early life.
Ho was quite fond of checkers and
chess, and played a great deal with
GcorgC Mason, his neighbor.
His favorite breakfast was corn-meal
cakes and a bowl pf milk,
Ho wore all sorts of colors sometimes
purple satin, again black velvet, brown,
blue, cream, pearl and green cloths.
He had several bright scarlet waist
coats that he seemed to bo fond of. Ills
servants wore a whlto livery with senr
let facings.
He owned six lots In Washington and
built a houso on two of them. It Is
now In mid air, two stories having been
built under it and two over It. Four
lots wero on tho Auacostla Hlvcr, where
lie thought the business part of tlio
Capital would be, Thoy aro worthless
now.
IIo was the first millionaire in tlio
United States.
He owned laud In fivo States and In
the Northwest Territory 19.US2 acres
all told.
Twico while President his Jifo was lu,
peril; Iu 1789 a carbuncle on ids thigh
prevented his walking or sitting nnd
for several days his life was despaired
of. He fled from Philadelphia when
tho yellow fever took oil over -1,000
people.
His bed tlmo was uniformly 0 o'clock.
Mrs. Washington used to sny at her re
ceptions when it camo 9 o'clock: "Thu
General always goes to bed at 0, and I
usually precedo film."
Ho accepted no salary as President.
Congress simply paid his expenses. His
house rent was $11,000 a year.
Ho wrote- poetry at tho age of 15
love-sick poetry at that.
Gcorgo III. offered him a peerage.
, AYhllo Washington was childless, so
far as the world and history absolutely
knew, hu was reputed to be tlio father
of General Thomas Posey, who was ouo
of his fnvorlto ofilccrs. General Posey
lies burled at Shawncctown, III.
He was tho possessor of a violin, and
It Is said ho could play a few simple
tunes. lie, did not sing.
He was not i good sportsman nor
much of a tlshorman. lie rode after
his pack of hounds a great deal, but
purely for e.xcrclso. Ho seldom got tho
fox.
A llullronil Nenr tho Stars.
Tills railroad from Mollcndo to
Arequipa is .remarkable for running
nearer tho stars than almost any other,
railway, for whero It passes over tho
western range of tho Andes into tho
great basin of tlio southern continent
tho track Is 11,705 feet abovo the sea,
and tho' only higher point nt which a
wheel was ever turned by steam is
whero another Peruvian railway tunnels
tho Andes. No other long road can
show an equal amount of excavation
nor such musslvo embankments, and
the engineering dilllcultics ovqrcome in
its construction were enormous.!
Youth's Companion,
AT THE BALL,
1780,
Lightly lingering on tho landing,
nraudmamma Is meekly standing
While the President Is handthg
Hersalado.
Bending courtly to her beauty,
Woud'rlug, as no makes his duty,
If this fair, forbidden fruit he
Slight havo had.
For upon that hand of satin
Colls another's page nnd that lu
His Idea, robs the matin
Of Its grace;
And as (Irauilnapa advances,
Shattered fall Ids loaplug fancies,
And ho turns his telltale gluuces
From her fucu.
And thoy calmly talk together
Of the very pleasant weather
Speculating as to whether
It will ralu.
And ttiQ President bows lowly
And goes down thu staircase slowly,
And the key upon his soul ho
Turns again.

WINOED SCAVENGERS.
Thecltyof Omnh.ihas In Its service
a force ofthousands of scavengers who
draw-no pay, report to no olllcial, but
aro protected by law from molestation.
They aro tho crows who Hock in town
ns Tcgularly as cold weather coincs, stay
during the winter and vanish In tho
spring.
Each evening as tho shadows fall
legions of crows wing their way lu a
scimlngly endless lllght to tho willow
copses nnd'clumps of small cottonwood
trees on the banks 6f tho Missouri, whero
they roost for thn night.
A favorite haunt Is at the bend of the
river, between Cut-Off and Florence
Lakes, where the banks shelter tho
northwest wind, says the Omaha World.
Tlictnlr is thick with sablo wings and"
resonant with hoarse caws thcra after
sunset eacli night, as tho scavengers
scttlo down among, .tho branches to
dream of bifek-arca lunches and Car
rion spreads.
With tho break of day tho sablo flock1
bestirs Itself. Eacluncmbcrhops about
to warm Its Chilled legs, stretches l;s
shiny wings and heads back toward the
city.
The vast flock breaks Into small
groups and they alight hero nnd tlioro
on tho tree-tops nml survey the back
jwrdtf and alleys until they can pick
out foraging places, Then they dc
sreud and In short order thef remains of
tho breakfasts, tha scraps of meat front
markets nnd tho rats killed by the
household dogs and cats aro gobbled up.
Some crows do scavenger work about
tho residences. Others alight can
tlously In tho alleys and others nro aU
traded to the stock-yards and packing
houses nt South Omaha. They light
shy of the business blocks.
Tlio crow who Inhabits the Missouri
is of the same breed with tho crow who
pulls up the farmer's corn in Vermont.
In tho East he is a nuisance. Tho
granger shoots him on sight, tries to
trfghtcn him with scarecrows and dips
the corn into Coal tar before lie plants
it, in the hope that It will spoil tho
pretty raven's nppctlto.
Two healthy .New England crows can
devastate a twenty-acro corn field if
unmolested. But tho crow who mi
grates to (ho Wes.t becomes a respected
resident, and nobody asks "What was
your pame back East I" or asks how he
stood with the farmers. He mates with
n chipper Dinah crow in a clump of
willows on tho bottoms, nnd in duo
tlmo they hatch out a nest of hungry
crowlcts.
Tlio father rustles for grasshoppers,
bugs and toads, while tho youngsters
aro growing th'clr pln-fcatltcrs. As
soon as they can fly their mother leads
them away from the contaminating in
fluences of the city, hnto the pure,
green country," and the wholo family
tunics loose upon the vermin nnd in
sects. None of them, ever trouble the corn
fields, nnd none of tho farmers ever
trouble them. Durlug the fall thoy
pick up tho looso grain, and pow aud
then play free lunch ilcnd on the corn
fields. In the West much of the corn is left
standing in the ileitis during tho winter,
while in the East it is stored In the
barn beforo snow falls. Perhaps this
apparent generosity on the part of the
fanner in Nebraska has something to
do with the improved conduct of tho
bird.
However this may bo, the bird in tho
Missouri Valley docs not rely upon the
corn-field, summer or winter, for sub
sistence. Nebraska, Iowa and Mis
souri crows rendezvous largely at Peru,
in this State.
It Is a famous roost for them and has
attracted the attention of naturalists.
Professor Taylor of tho Normal School
at Peru has'rnado a close Study of the
habits of tlie.se crows and is writing a
series of papers to be published In an
Eastern magazine on that subject.
Mcantlmo tlio sable -crow continues to
ppend his summers In tho country- nnd
his winters In the city, following Jho
. fashion which his wealthiest biped
patrons set tor tncinseives. iMcnnugc.
)ut Ho Kniiw- Ills (lult.
Ho had come hero n stranger and got
in with tho boys. Ho looked Innocent
aud thero was buttermilk in his breath
and pumpkln-plo In ids talk, Ho seemed
to havo plenty of money, and a com
pound was prepared for him to swal
low. The other day he was invited to
tako a drive. It was so arranged nfter a
little that ho could not fall to notice
certain things, and ho had to feel obliged
to ask:
"My dear boy, you look troubled."
"Yes, I am in deep trouble."
"What Is It? I am your friend, and
If I ?an do anything you have only to
command,"
"I I hato to mention It."
"Pshawl Thero should bo no hesita

"I I've got a noto of f 100 to meet

"Is that all? Why, my dear follow,
I Insist thnt you accept my check for

Alter hanging off awhile tho offer
was accepted. Upon returning to the
hotel three or four chums wero called
In, thrco or four bottles of wlnu opened,
and everybody turned out to be yard
wide-and all wool. When tho conven

and the check handed In. Tlio cashier
