There was a sccuo of rcvolry by day and tho
Nation's Capital had gathered there, her
licauty and her minstrelsy, nnd bright tho light
lionc o'er fair women nnd, bravo men and so
forth. This occurred yesterday afternoon at
tho Capitol l'ark, wlicioa combltio organized
among Thatcher, l'rlmroso and West's Min
strels met a Trustof newspaper men, mostly
iroill lliu i oai, uui. iiuueiy tuiui uu uvur luwii,
nnd played a game ot baseball for the relief of
the yellow fovcr suffctcra hi Florida. Florida
being about 00 miles from tho Park It will bo
seen where the relief comes In. There was a
largo and elegant audience in the grand stand
at 4 o'clock and thu cooling boardB were
loaded nt about the tamo hour.
Tho Minstrel band was on hand with all
valves open, nnd It discoursed dulcet strains
without extra charge, and wore beautiful
while satin bridal plug hats besides. At -1:15
tho game was called by Mr. Cvriira Marble,
but just what It wns called wo cauyot now
state with safety to Mr. Marble, who, as um
pire, has enough bruises to tako care of at
present. The Mlnsticl combine, was known tis
the "J.ungs" and tho Press Trust as "l'cn
ells," und tho Lungs went to knock at 4:16
promptly by tho Uck-ct in Mr. Marblo's vest
pocket. Very shortly after that Iho "l'on
clls" went In, having laid a goose egg In tho
lap of tticlr esteemed contemporaries. Fol
lowing tho Ilrst Inning wcro sovoral more as
many'as four and at tho closo of tho gamo
there had boon fourteen tallymarks made o n
each side, with great appiauso and surprlso to
tho many friends of tho contestants.
Tlio members of thu Minstrel combluo wcro
draped In graceful npparel, ranging from a
cowboy to a horse ballot girl, and brought
down tho crand stand nnd half tho fcuco by
their nnlqulty ot costume. Tho I'ouells wcro
draped simply In clothes. Tho umpires as a.
rule wero good enough for umpires. Editor
Halford drow a blue pencil on n player and
marked him out, and Marblo tiled to "lead an
nitlr.ln" bv tiirnlntr a blamed old revolver on
n kicker. Thcro was somo real good playing
on both sides, but it was lottery playing, 1. o..
you know how It Is yourself. The rocelpts of
tho gamo wcro large. Up to date thoy have
not been conllscatcd, but tho "Lungs" will bo
searched beforo they lcavo town.

ono wandering minstrel was nrrostcd for petty
larceny after stealing second base, Coroner

on tho Held, but happily was not called on to

When "Pencils" began to scoro pretty lively
Dr. Howe, General Hurhnus and Umpire Mar

themselves to everyone's satisfaction.
Interchange or Incivilities nt a Colored
A littlo gathering at the colored Bap
tist Church on Burnt Mills Road last
night was interrupted by several littlo
incidents that wero calculated to lend
interest and eclut to the occasion. Mr.
Sam White is an cx-member of tho Star
or Bethlehem Lodge, in which organiza
tion Alex Brown is n prominent ltgure.
During tlio evening Mr. Whito so far.
forgot the littlo restrictions that are
always observed in polite society as to
remark to Mr. Brown's wife :
' You are a bhort-legged devil ; that's
what you arc."
With that natural aptness for repar
tee which adds bo much to a woman's
charms, Mrs. Brown replied naively:
" Well, if I am n. short-logged devil,
you are a long-legged devil: so there."
This rather unnoved Mr. White. Ho
said nothing, however, but toyed with
his razor nervously.
