Just why it is these terrible things docs not appear, although the World asserts It as fact, Inasmuch as 3Ir. Carter Harrison is mi honest and capable man, a good He jmblicnn, and not objectionable to the ix-ople of his section. It next asks why Ilenjamiu Harrison lewurilrd his family with an office -which belongs to the people. When, we would ask, lias it disfranchised a man or deprived 1dm of Ids rights as tine of the people because his brother luts become President? Is Mr. Carter UnuUon any less of the people than he was this lime last year, or Is he any less worthy to hold an office 1 The World's zeal is limning away with Its common hTUKl'.

New York maintains gallantly her trptitatlon as the meanest city on the continent. Some millions of dollars were spent in that city by outsiders dining the centennial celebration, and New York could well afford to expend large sums in preparation for such an rvinl. What was tho actual outlay ? The Slate nppropilated $-00,000, tho i ity $5,000, and the remainder was msilo up by sales of seats, ball and ban quet tickets and stmlhu privileges, and by popular subscilptlon, What did ilio popular subset iption amount to? .Inst fri'J.OOO I The pitiful showing of centennial Kiilv-criptimis but adds to tho record al icady made by tin; richest city on the (.'eminent as being tho meanest one. Chlcagoans, under similar circuin Manci'H, would have contributed three times as much as did tho New Yorkers, snd would have thought nothing of It. liven 81.

Thrre Is simply nn question as to the facts. Tnr. Nr.w Viuik .S'hh complains because lllshop Potter said Andrew Jarksou wai vulgar, and says vulgarity is akin to haic ni'ts. The .Sim misinterprets the lllshop. In the vernacular of the swell circle which the lllshop adorus "vulgarity" doesn't mean what the i'101 thinks It does. It means that It Andrew Jackson were living In New York to-day ho could not get Into th circle of the "Four hundred," unless hu biokeln. There Is no denying that "Old Hickory" was vulgar In that sense, for ho ste with his knife, wiped his mouth on the tabic cloth and drank his coffee out of tho saucer. In most other respects (leueral Jackson was all right. Mil. Cleveland Is having occasion once" more to think mean things of American newspapers.

WANTED TO OUT HER OPEN. About 2 o'clock yesterday rooming James Hannon, a middlc-ugcd man, en tered the Hobokcn, N. Y., police station and begged that n physician bo sent to his residence, 11 Madison street He said that his wife had taken "Rough on Rats," and that she was dying in great agony. The sergeant In charge sent for City Physician Simon, who at once went with Hannon lo whero the supposed dying woman was. The doctor found tho woman In lied, suffer ing apparently from convulsions. He timed tier pulse and found it beating regularly. Ho then looked for the "poi6on and found a package of tooth powder. Near by was a glass contain ing part of the mixture. He camu to the conclusion that the pretty, fair, haired younfj woman was feigning, and in a stern voice exclaimed; ' 'This stomach-pump is useless' In such a'scrlous case as tills. I'll have lo cut her openl" Tho doctor had haidly spoken tho last word when Mrs, Hannon sat up In bid nnd excitedly shouted: "My Oodl doctor, don't do that. 1 have not taken poison at all.

They arc, as a rule, paper-covered, but many nf them aro good, and there comes occasionally a publication as pretentious in Iho matter of binding mid as notable in quality nnd name of author as any printed ntty whi'tc. The substance of It all is that Chicago is coming rapidly to the front as a publishing centre, and Is becoming naturally, one of the literary centres as well. Some strong men In the world of letters, men who have already done sulking work, and who will be better know ii with each year that passes, are included In the Chicago group. Tlie personal character, the surround lugs, the particular style of effort ot the Chicago literary contingent should not be without Ihtcrcst. No one or the fioup, piobably, Is better known than lugcne Field. Wonderfully versatile In Ids woi k, a writer of dainty verso, teller of stories that touch tlie heart and ruthless delineator of what Is the weak or vicious trait lu tlie pompous among Philistines, It was Inevitable that he should make a reputation. TJio fart that he has had a newspaper column, lu which to Indulge his gro tesque fancies, the "Sharps and Flats" column of tho Chicago Sries, has assist ed greatly In sccuringfor him thoiccog nilfon ho deserves. IIo has done work outside the newspaper, but of this work tho public has yet seen little. When there nppcars by-and-by something which will make people say that there Is an American Hans Christian Ander son, It will bo n book of short stories by Kugcne Field. He may like other work he has In hand better, but none will do more to make his fame where fame counts for something. Oplo P. Rrnd of thu Aiteuutaie 'J'ratiltv, humorist, story-teller, a giant in figure and n little child over tlie beautiful, is another Chlcagoan whose name may be a national possession. Who lias not read his story of "Leu Gansett" has missed reading one Ameri can novel which Is a photograph of life In one part of the' country and a tale which somehow reaches tlie heart. It has a man ami a"woman In It. When Theodore Wintlirop died in battle the man who might have been tho Ameri can novelist went down. There' hnve been scon's of American novels, so called, written slnco then, but save one or two lemliiilersiu tho work of De For rest nothing until Oplo Rend began to write which even suggested tlie out door Amciican virility of "John limit," tho real American whom wo lecognlro with his love affair. John McGovem, cdltoiiat writer on tho Chicago Htrald, lias written ono novel, a stioug one, but of the city purely, In "John Trentworthy." McGov ern is the Chicago Curlyle. His sen tences are like stones from a sling, his thoughts nbovo precedent or picscnt fashion. Ho is In a literary' group what Ingalls Is lu the United States Senate. Ho Is n student, has a brain, and Is what, per haps, the man whoso name is used in tlie simile may not be, a crusader. Ho must be heard from, for he is a power naturally. On n newspaper less bold and just than the newspaper on which he writes, In its editorial tone, ho would be almost a bull in a china shop. Ho Is- at home where ho is, but there cannot be his only field. E. J. MePhcllm, dramatic critic of the Chicago Tribune, is one of tho Chicago writerH who should do more work for the magazines. Ho can do wonderful work a choice poem, n re view which will command attention, a dramatic story when he cares to do so, but ho 'doesn't often tare to do ho. Scourged, he would mako a name swiftly. A young man who is just winning a place among verse writers is Ernest lie Gaffcy, a young attorney, who, when not in his office or in court, Is in tho country with rod or dog nnd gun. IIo has contributed verses nnd short sketches which have a Thorcaii-isli ipiality to them commanding regard lrom all who can appreciate. How much of his timo will lu tho future be devoted to divorce suits or ballot-box cases and how much to the muse nono save himself knows; probably he doesn't know himself. Chicago has other writers who havo their squircshlp won, and who yet will have their spurs. Tills is but a uon comprehensive, off-hand, hurried, half-column-filling bit of gossip about some of them.

A NOVELETTE. 1 like all kinds of shows pretty well, but most of all I think I like n dime museum, because It Is so curious, If I had to rhoosu between paying five dol lars to hear Ilooth and llariclt and ten cents to sec n dime museum 1 should sec the dime miifiruin If I had the dime. 1 strolled into n dime museum the other morning in n blase way, and tho first thing that struck me was tlie fat woman. That Is tho way I like women. She did not regard me with displeasure. Indeed, I observed many little coquettish evidences of a desire on her part to break the Ice. Weighing COO pounds, she seemed calculated to break It If she frit like It. She was a blonde, with natural, sunny rjuls. She had generous dimples In her checks. Hit form was ample. For one con structed on so large nplan her feet wero small, and they twinkled under her short but modest skirts with consider able fascination, She wore a red dress that morning which did not lessen the general effect of her. li. I approached with case aud sanr froid, but with the scarcely concealed consciousness of the power to conquer. 1 lalscd my hat. Sho smiled. It was like the opening of Aladdin's cave. Willi this encouragement the rest was a mere matter of tlmo to me, "You ore looking Very well this morning," 1 said, inn cheerful, winning way; "everything seems to ngreu with you." She smiled again, so sweetly that It was all I could do to keep from falling lu out l icstraliiFil myself. "Yes," she said, "I'm fecli ling away tin." "You aru away up," 1 replied with subtle flattery. "You are not only away up, but you are away out and nwny around. "Thanks," shesalif! in. "Excuse me," I said, with great art, "but you so strangely lcmind mo of somebody I used to know. Do"you remember ever having met me before?" "Not exactly," she replied, "unless you aie the Australian Idiot wo used to have with the show." I drew myself up proudly. "No, Miss," 1 replied; "I am not Aus tralian." She paused. It teemed thu most natural thing In Hie world for her to pause, "ion will pardon my seeming pre1 ipltnncy," I returned. ''Hut were you ever in love all over?" "No," she naively said, nnd a blush carae like a sunset upon her brow "nover boforc." "I beg your pardon," I continued, "I have been In love beforo, but never to such on extent." Bhr paused again. We both paused. It was I that broke the silence. "Dearest," I murmured, "you seem to havo passed the point of a human being nnd become something In the way of natural scenery. How much do you weigh anyway;?'1 "Six hundred aud something," she replied. "Hut my heart is light," tv, I oould rro that I had made an tin prcsslon. "My darling," I cried, "do you really care forme"?" "Sure I" she said, "I love you I I am yours 1 Take me 1" "I will," I rapturously exclaimed, "If I can find a dray." Fred Nye, in Omaha Republican.
