"I never speak nt fairs now," said

A repoitcr of the Chicago iVWr was
lite other day in Howard Krctschmar's
studio watching the sculptor at work
on the clay model of Gcneinl Grant for
tho War Department. "1 Itavo endeav
oud," said Mr. Krctschmar to ihe re
poiter, "to separate the relationship of
the subject lo the object. Step back
there and look at tho eyes. They wear
Ihe expression of the physical eye. He
is looking nt u lock or a tree or some
commonplace object, but his mind is
on tho bailie. Ho is thinking of tho
foice ho has or his enemies have, of
the map ho made yesterday and of the
lay of the land. Ho Is gazing stead
fastly at ono of tho'c commonplace ob
jects that Intrude themselves on one's
notice even nj the most critical or mov
ing moment!). You will seo 1 have
treated tho subject heorically. Tho
bie Is heroic. Tlicio are my photo
giaplis," ho continued, pointing to a
number ol pictures arranged on an
encl near by, "but I havo not followed
all the chariiclciistics shown in any one
of those portraits. I lmvouicd such as
1 chose lo, and combined them In a he
roic whole." .lust then General Sheii
thiu nml bis aid entered. The General
m on his wny West, and called in
by appointment to Inspect tho mo lei.
On catching sight of the counterfeit of
his old commander, tho little warrior
ilofTcd his hat and stood for n moment
without speaking, galng with rever
ence nnd admiration at the copy of tho
well-known features. The artist
puMicd Imck tho red Turkish fi'.
which tidoiucd his head mid walle.l
for tho gencralV. criticism. "You see,
geucial," he said, "I had nothing but
these to go by," and ho pointed to the
photographs. Tho general waved tits
mind impressively. "If you want my
advice," ho said, "don't lay another
linger nn it. It is perfectly satisfac
tory." Then bo put on his hut and
left. This bust, when llnishe.l, Is to bo
placed with that of Sheridan, ul-ei
modeled by Mr. Krotsehniar, in the
War Department at Washington. The
mllst has an appointment with General
Slieuuan in November for twelve sit
tings. This is also an order from the
Go eminent.
Tho Assistant Secretary of tho In

There Is no end of discussion mid
nuu h divcilly of opinion as to tho
piobablu character and tendencies of
the society which the Cleveland Ad
ministration will glw. Those who
look for u strong litciury llavor are
not fow, says the (ilobi-lh'mieriil corre
spondent and there is going on In
many n West Knd mansion liie nopd
eltlon of culture through a process vill
ain ly called craming, The prosp'eet Is
that more additions will bo Hindu to the
list of Washington authors this year
than can lie counted hi the 11 vo precad
tig years. Bo much for having a Unit
lady who writes ci Ideal essays. No
less than four ladles, who have hither
to been social leaders hero, aro now
avowedly engaged upon their maiden
works in letters, whilo probably ten
times thnt number aro laying plans lu
secret, or with the knowledge of a
limited fow, which plans hnvo not yot
been sulllclontly matured to bo initdo
public. Tho lnlltienoe of Miss Clove
land's cxnmplu Isapparcnt In tho direc
tion which these llteraty ventures aro
Inking. Ono lady, hitherto a butter
lly of fashion, presents to tho world
her views on the "LaW; of Dramatic
lrco lu Gcorgo Kllloi's Writings."
Another lion got beyond her lillo pago
which rends, "Flowors and Thorns lu
Our Garden: A Social Satire on Wash
ington nml New York." Thoro U a
suggestion of some revelations both
timely and Inking In "The Servility of
Homo Olllco-b'eckers." "Aftcr-Dluner
Speeches" Is nnythlug but n compila
tion:, it alTords a cover simply for men
and things.
One of Ihe great events of the coming
year nt Washington will bo the memo
rial set vices which Congress will hold
in honor of General Grant, nnd If, as
hns been suggested, ltoscoe Colliding
should bo chosen to pronounce tho
eulogy, his .speech will probably go
down lo posterity as one of Ihe great
specimens of American eloquence.
"Carp" of tho Lanier talked with ex-I'ostinnstor-Gcncral
Cresswell about
Conkllng nt Mount MacGrcgor while
Grant was lying In his coflln not a
stone's throw away from whero they
wcte speaking. Said he: "I consider
itoscoc Conkllng tho greatest debater
on cailh. Ills command of langimgo
surpasses that of any public man I
know. 1 Ic uses many uncommon words,
nnd In such a way that his shade of
meaning Is expressed lu tho shortest
and most forcible manner. His speech
nominating Giant at Chicago was ouo
of the greatest orations of our history.
Do you remember the verso with which
ho began It?" "Yes," said I, "it was
something like this:"
"If you ask mo whence my candidate,
ily solo reply shall be,
He comes fiom Appomattox
And Its famous apple tice."
"Well," continued the General, "I can
tell you where Conkllng got that verse.
It was not original with hlm, but was
tho work of a friend. Some time before
the convention he nud tills friend wore
out riding together and tho friend road
to Mr. Conkllng n poem which he had
been writing about Grant. The above
was one of the verses of the poem.
When It was read Conkllng said:
"That is a good thing, and 1 may have
occasion to use it." Ho then made the
poet read It over several times until he
had It thoroughly commlled to memory.
The steady npplauso of full llfleon min
utes which followed it when ho uttered
It at Chicago showed that hu was not
mistaken In lis vnluev "Do you think
Conkllng has any political future?"
1 nkcd. "IIo may have,"
wns tho leply, "but It seems
to mo only In one emergency. If
a mighty issue should oomo before the
country nnd the people should become
Involved In It to .such an extent thai
the Issue overshadowed the men who
lcpiesenlcdlt, Conkllng might come to
tho front as' ono of tho great orators of
a party nnd as such regain his old foot
hold. At such times lenders become
heroes In the people's eyes, and such an
occasion may yet renutke ltoseoe Conk
ling. The gient mistake of Conkliug's
life was In his attempt to go back to the
Bcnnlo, He made tho attempt against
his belter judgment, nnd I don't bo
lievo lie Intended to mako It when lie
tendered his leslgnalion."

Altogether she was perhaps tho
homeliest woman you ever saw. Her
nose and chin receded as If by mutual
agreement, leaving to her curved and
beak-llko noso tho duly of making llrst
acquaintance with any opposing object;
her round, paio eyes had n dull glare
thnt reminded unpleasantly of tho llsh
stalls In the maikct, and her complexion
was n wreck. Whether It had over
been nnythlug olso was a problem, for
whoso solution no visible data appeared
All these drawbacks, howover, did not
ptevent her from entertaining senti
mental Illusions in regard to herself.
It was not to be denied that sho had n
line suit of hair, black nud glossy, and
Inclined to curl. Her llgure. too, win
ono of which much could bo made by
judicious manipulation, and her hands
wcro objects of undisguised admira
tion to at least one person.
"At least no fault can bo found with
my hand',," she was wont to say com
l'lacently when points of personal
beauty fotmed the topic of conversa
tion. The position of dressmaker innscml
naiy town, whero tho boarders nro
mainly from the farming districts, Is
one thai possesses obvious advantages,
especially If, as In tho caso of Miss
.locclyn, tho dressmaker, Is so fortu
nate as to gain thu ccmlldcnco of tho
faculty. Miss Jocelyn sedulously cul
tivated the good opinion of the faculty.
Sho attended the clmich which ex
tended Its patronage over tho Institu
tion, with unllinehlng punctuality, al
ways liming her arrival so as to trip
briskly up tho nlslc just in advanco of
the procession from the seminary, nnd
take her scat In one of Iho side" pews
w 1th nu impressive air of earnest devo
tion to duty thai could not fail to at
tract attention. Furthermore, sho made
the dresses of the lady principal at
something llko a icasonalilo rate, nnd
was pnitleularly careful to make no
mention in her bill of such small items
as binding, hooks and eyes, button-hole
twist nnd tho like, well knowing tho In
ducible aversion of great minds to
tilllesoflh.it soit. Thus it was that
Miss Jocelyn had come to bo considered
nlmost In the light of olllehd costumer
to tho "Fern. Sem.," and not lo possess
at least one .locclyn gown was to bu
hopelessly out of slylo In that small
For tlie moit part Miss Jocelyn bore
herself toward her youthful customers
wilh. just the proper blending of dig
nity and affability, but on certain occa
sions, nnd with certain persons, she re
ln.xcd a little from the severe limits sho
usually imposed upon herself, and then
it was that a glimpse waa obtained of
the wrecked hopes of her maiden
It was generally In spring tlnie.whon
graduation robes wcie in contempla
tion, that a sudden access of senti
mental reminiscence scl.cd upon Miss
.locclyn and Impelled her, like an an
cient mariner in petticoats, to fasten
upon some helpless victim, strnlghtly
pinned in a foimlcss jacket of shiny
hilesla, and disagiccably conscious of
pioiniucnco of her shoulder-blades ami
tho uncompromising quality of her
waist, and thus unbosom herself:
"All mo! it's lovclv to be young and
lo graduate, isn't it?' I do think it's

Hero n great sigh which only long
practice could have rendered It safe to
indulge in with all those pins lu her
mouth, and a brief silence devoted on
her pint to unpinning and readjusting
the silcsia jacket, while thu victim
vaguely woudeicd whether -Miss Joee

shining scissors, snipping angrily,
siemed to threaten to avengo tho
wrongs of fate by cutting the tliroat of
the unoffending victim.
"Why, Miss Jocelyn, how was that 1"
asked the ictlm, divided between cu
i losliy and anxiety concerning thu reck-lc-s
snipping of the scissors.
"Ah1 a strange, sad story. Of course
you must have remaiketl yourself that

of loveis, scores of them; but my heart
was Inaccessible. 1 was ambitious.
Often and often had I heard teachers
and school trustees exhort tho boys to
ambition, pointing out to tlumi that
any one of them might bo President of

aspire to be I'rcsident, why should
not a girl aspire to be a 1'iesl

would be. Yes, 1 dared to lift my eves
so high, and I havo never regretted It.
A high aim ennobles even If it bu not

would marry until 1 found n man
whoso ambition equaled my own. 1
waited patiently. At last ha catno. 1

myself to charm him. I suci'm- le 1, of

ho said quilo cheerfully ;
"Well, that's not of so much conse
quence, but you know chemistry and
botany, of course, and natural philoso

It was agony to confess It. I know
nothing of those llilngs. I know full
well Ihe objecl of all this questioning.
He was ambitions as I, but he know
belter than 1 had known what was
needed In Iho race of life. Ho knew
that Ids wife must bo his equal lu ed

"Arnmltila," lie said, solemnly.
"Alnsl my love, why havo you not
learned these things? Know you not
that they aro essential lo success In life?
How can you over expect to reign as

Then he mummied something In n
language I did not understand.
"Whnt did you say?" 1 asked.
"Omjce nro Knee tmiuUc ponyi," he
repeated, looking sternly at me.
"Oh, what do you mean," I cried.
"Is It something terrible?"
"Tcirlblo Indeed," he said. "You
do not even know French. How would
you ever talk to the foreign ambas
sadors?" In vain I clung to him, promising to
