' OF INTEREST TO ATHLETES. James Robinson, the athletic trainer at Princeton College, Princeton, X. J., says: I hdve found it imperative to have sura and" simple remedies on hand incase of cut, bruises, strains, sprains, coldsr.rheum atism. etc. Shortly utter entering upon niv profession, I discovered such a remedy in Allcock's Porous Plasters. I tried other plasters, but found them all too harsh and irritating. ALLCOCK'S POROUS PLASTERS give almost inatmitaueous lc liei, and rheir stiengtbeniuc power ii re markable. In cases of weak back put two plasters on the small of the back and iu a short time you will bo capable of quite severe exercise. In "priut" and "dis tance" races and jumpiug, the muscles or tendons in the legs and feet sometimes weaken. This can invariably be relieved by cutting the plaster iu narrow strips, so h-. to give iree motion, and applying on muscles affected." OPIUM SMUGFLERS ON TRIAL. Portland, Or., Nov. 27.

Like Washington society they are of a somewhat composite order. Many of the fair maids, 'tis true, have but dim recollections of any other habitation than Washington, and if sentiment could control the location of one's domicile, and "home" be, in fact, "where the heart is-,"' the nation's cap ital might claim them for its own.

MISS BLACKBUH'f. the Blue Grass state whose "silver" ut terances were counted among the most powerful appeals for the white metal in the recent senatorial controversy. Senator Blackburn came to Washing ton as a member of the house of repre sentatives in 1S75, and ten years later he passed over to the senate chamber. It will be easily seen that Washington may claim a heavy balance in his fair daughter's life. Miss Lucille is the j'oungest of a family of charming daughters who are especial favorites in the circle known in Washington as official so ciety. She is a slender, graceful demoiselle with the winsome, ingen uous manner, and the charm of conver sation "peculiar to the southern girl. They arc gifts of nature and may not be acquired. Like all true Kentuck ians, she is a judge' of horseflesh and is said to evince acute powers of discrim ination in selecting- the "winning horse." Charming at all times, Miss Blackburn is at her best mounted. She is a superb horsewoman. Romance is sure to hover about 'd" young lady of so manj' attractions; Miss Blackburn has a host of admirers. The fortunate knight is not yet named. Miss Faulkner, the daughter of West "Virginia's senator, is also a prime fa- MSS HERBEBT.

Miss Herbert was not born in Wash ington it has been said that no one ever was, but the new babe at the white house has shattered that tradi tion. Away down south in the Ala bama corner of the land of cotton is where Miss Herbert's baby eyes first saw the light of this world, and her childhood days were pretty evenly dis tributed between her southern home and the capital. Secretary Herbert had served his state in congress con tinuously since 1877 up to the time that he was made a member of the cab inet. Miss Herbert has tasted all the joys of the sweet girl graduate. She, com 1p ICOPTIUGHT, IS93.1 OTHING to be thankful for, eh?" said my stern parent to me, just twenty-live years ago next Thurs day. "Look at poor Harry Jackson who can't walk. What would you say if tho use of your legs was taken away from you?" And then, in a burst of childish confidence, I told him just what I thought I should say in such circumstances. The re mark was not original with me. I got it from a Beverly sailor who had formerly been a pirate. Ten min utes later I began to sympathize more fully with poor Harry, for though I did not lose the use of my legs, I came as near to it as was anatomically pos sible. And yet, while I partook of our fine, old-fashioned dinner that day (off the mantolpiece, I had cause for gen uine thanksgiving in the thought, that it was better to get that sort of thing from your sire once in awhile when 3rou deserved it, than to have it as a permanency from tho hand of providence when you hadn't done any thing at all. This experience proves the good old theory that the sorrows of others are essential elements of our gratitude; and with this view of the subject I shall proceed to tell the storj of a man who did not-have anj'thing to be thank ful for. It may answer a public need in these hard times. Let the person to whom I refer be called Billy. He was a college grad uate who did not nourish those exalted notions of his own importance which graduates of the composing-room are accustomed to write about in the news papers when June comes around.

ROME, Nov. 27.-There is no prospect of an lnimomate settlement of tlie cabinet KNOWLEDGE voritc'at the capital, although she can not be said to have grown up under the shadow of the dome. Senator Faulkner lias held his seat in the legis lative halls since 1837. He has taken a prominent part in the discussions of that august body, and his daughters have beeu no less brilliant members of Washington's social world. Miss Faulk ner is an exceptionally accomplished pianist, aud has innumerable charms of mind and manner that have drawn about her a large circle of friends and admirers. It is predicted that she will figure quite conspicuously in the white house coterie in the coming season. Miss Jones, of Arkansas, has made her home in Washington since 1SS1, when her fnther, Senator James K. Jones, was elected to congress, first as member of ttho house and later as sen ator.

Washington's loss will be New York's gain. A New York editor has won and soon will wed tho dainty demoiselle. Miss Thompson is a dashing bru nette beauty, with the instinct of a vraie Parisienne in matters of dress. Her toilets are faultless in stylo and are worn with such grace that while they perfectly assimilate with, they yet accentuate her charms. She is tall and slender, is vivacious in man ner, brilliant in conversation, and has the ease and grace that is distinctive of tho beau monde. As a fearless equestrienne she does honor to her state. She rides like a Kentuckian. Miss Peffer is the daughter of the populist senator from Kentucky. Her father has taken a prominent place in the senate chamber. Although the daughter is a comparatively new comer there is no doubt but that she will find her place in the social world. Washington's Benedicts have the reputation of being always available but rarely eligible. Be that as it ma, the joyous chimes of wedding bells ring out from one year's end to an other, almostK without ceasing, in the gay capital. The procession of merry maidens, sooner or later, by some magic spell becomes a bridal proces sion. Yet Washington is never with out its full quota of pretty girls, the fairest in the nation, a livin of Columbia's daughters. HARHrETT nrXEY. accepted a situation as clerk to a friend of his family. This gentleman imme diately put his employe on terms of social equality so flattering that the young man thought it would be mean to say much about the matter of salary. It is true, however, that, during the first months of this arrange ment, Billy was frequently on tho point of trying to pawn his front teeth which were filled with gold. Often in the hot summer, Billy's em ployer, Mr. Trapp, spoke of his lino suburban residence, and expressed in advance tho great pleasure lie would feel in having Billy for his guest there. The coolness with which ho said this without actually tendering an invita tion was,so refreshing that Billy did not perspire at all during the month of August. But on the day before Thanksgiving Mr. Trapp proved that he nad not been merely bluffing. "You must eat 3'our Thanksgiving dinner at my place, Billy," said he. Now tlie word dinner with Billy did not need any qualifying term. It carried its own idea of thankfulness. At the sound of it Billy stopped chew ing blue blotting paper which of lato he had found to be quite palatablo and looked up into his employer's genial countenance inquiringly. "It would be just like M. Trapp," he re flected, "to say a thing of that kind and then explain that he meant Thanksgiving of the following vear." "Er-er-to-morrow?" stammered Billy, j "Why of course," cried Mr. Trapp j with a merry laugh, and he slapped Billy on tho back, producing thus a re markable, sad, hollow sound. "You must come out with mo tonight." "I shall bo delighted," said Billy, "but" He glanced down along his faded at tire and blushed. "Oh, you can go homo to dress at six o'clock," said Mr. Trapp. "Then como back here. We shall have a little work to do this evening, and then wo can catch a late train out to Wee junkus." At seven o'clock in the evening Billy appeared in the office wearing his best clothes, and surrounded bv an atrnos- THA2TKFCX TO GET THROUGH IT AXIVE. tie softer than the floor.

"I'll have to tie him up," said he, and crawled out of bed. lie lighted the lamp, and perceived a piece of rope, dangling from the window ledge. The other end was outside, but Billy did not stop to find out where it went. It is necessary, however, that tho reader should know. This rope led along the roof of the house to a tower at the othor end, and in the top of which was a big bell. This was a burglar-alarm, a contrivance not un common in that part of New Jersey. There had recently been a great bur glar scare in that region, and all tho women were frightened out of their wits. So were many of the men, but they did not say so much about it. Several of the principal householders had equipped their houses with bur glar alarms like Mr. Trapp's: aud a sort of vigilance committee had been organized whose members were pledged to take up arms and respond to any nocturnal summons. The bur glar bells -were usually provided with two ropes, leading'to different parts of the houses, so that if tlie burglars overpowered one of the bell-ringers, the other could keep the merry peal a-going. In Mr. Trapp's bou.se wo have found one of tho ropes. Tho other led to Mr. Trapp's own bedroom. Of course Bill knew nothing about this. He simply tied the rope around the dog's neck and wnt to bed. Pres ently the dog got chilly by the half open window, and made a jump for the bed. Immediately from without camo the clang of the big bell. The dog strained at the rope; the bell contin ued to ring. Mr. Trapp was awakened. He heard the bell. "Burglars!'' he yelled, and grabbed the rope which led to his room. And now the bell rang out with furious clamor. Screams resounded through the" house.

The Edison home, Glcnmont, is in' Llewellyn Park, a suburb of Orange, and one of the prettiest places in tho Orange mountains, being situated on tho eastern blopo of Eagle Rock, whence can be obtained one of tho most beautiful and extensive views to bo had in the neighborhood of New York. The observatory at Conoy Is land, twenty miles away, can be dis cerned from there on a clear day, and charming glimpses of the intervening country. Glcnmont itself is luxurious and beautiful. Its furnishings and decorations are in the best of taste, und Edison has a comfortable, big library in which a bookworm might dream away his existence in contented peace and idleness. Edison has no time for that kind of dreaming, howev-r. His province is rather to make dreams practical, and to that end he spends mobt of his time in his laboratory mid workhhops a group of red brick buildings about five min- t utes,' walk from the hout-c.
