New York, Feb.s. — Ward Howe bas been engaged since the days of the New Orleans Exhibition,at first by the maintenance ol an industrial column in the Woman’s Journal and later by pri vate correspondence, in a study ol the (Industrial condition of women in the United States, more especially as re gards the home industries, or the varie ties of work that are, or may be, pur sued by women whose activities are lim ited by home responsibilities. In conversation with Mrs. Howe upon the results of her investigations sonic lit tle time since, she said to me that one ob ject in all she had been doing whs to /brill!; forward, if possib (, ■ nadjutors "ho should consider went opening there might ibe. it any, for a central organization, with branches in the different cities o! the country, which should act as a medium ot communication between the woman, bemmed in by her little world ot home loves and home burdens, ami the yet un developed market, wuich might take to ]ts own advantage the work ol her fingers ah 1 make those burdens lighter by the taking. 'The plan that Mrs. Howe thus outlined might he supplemented, she told me, if the scheme ever took lorm and body,by women's industrial congresses, whose yearly gatherings, now here, now tiiere. migot carry kno ledge ot the work to every quarter ot the country, and mighi serve as rallying points lor thoughtful women interested in the economic pro gress of their own sex. 'The scueine is not an impracticableono surely, and is worthy to engage the best thought of a woman who has given much time to the interests of women. The work itself Is of something the same sort as that with which the women’s exchanges have for some time been exnerimentlng ©n a sraaiier scale, and it needSgbut little experience in these to teach one the need id its doing. It was on a casual visit, indeed, to the lunch room of the New York Woman’s Exchange, a! 329 Fifth avenue, one day tins past week, mat 1 got b better idea than any description can convey ot the women the exchanges are helping, the sort of help they need and the opening there ia for more comprehen sive work of the kind Mrs, liowe has sug- gosted. 1 was sitting at a little table facing the floor, when a voice with a strained under tone o! anxiety beneath its composure caught my ear, and 1 looked up to see a woman wuoee mstory was writ'en ou her Tace plainly enough and in sufficient, de rad tospa'-e Mr. llowells all intellectual ■effort iu putting on paper a diary of her existence. ghe carried an old-time, carpet-covered traveling bag, the weight of widen pulled jher jgure slightly to one side.

A lot of bottles seen on a window sill in the brown-stone district before noon is getting to be a re cognized sign of the residence ol a man about town. To be a man about town, or a good (ellow, or a “rounder,” as the pro fusion Is variously called, is quite a science. Wueiher it is because we are not so strong as men used io be in the days when to he a mail was to be either a a lignter or a laborer, or whether weal we dilnk is more adulterated than It used to be, a nmn has to be something of a doctor to drink his share in the frivolous world ot to-ilay. The rounders, or men abou town, in this city very quickly begin to study the all-important qtc stion how to drink and yet live to dr ins more, just as a soldier learns to tire and tail back so as to be ready to fire again. This is not pie- turesqueor encouraging, but it isoneoi the s gus ol lue times. It won’t do to mention tames, although they would be very interesting, but the methods of a tew notable drinkers are odd enough to jot down. A certain gieat Republican always ends a night with Llthia water and dies to it again the next day. One ol i he greatest “rounders” in club circles, a man who lakes wine by tbs quart aud beer by ttio gallon, always drinks a pint of water, beaviiv mixed with bi-carbon ate ol soda, on retiring, and another pint in the morning. Hosts of men tiabttua ly take half a teuspoonful of soda in a glass of water altera night of good fellowship. Ihe heaviest drinker among New York brewers always tops oil a night’s cargo ol beer with a glass or two of gin and says that it saves bis life. Many more bumble Germane finish with imported seltzer. The correct thing with dudes who can alTord a valet is to wear down next morn ing’s htaa wi*h n •* bout*’ with the gloves, followed by a cold pluuge and a vigorous rubbing with harsh towels. A punch ba. 1 to bang away at and a cold plunge are substitutes used by o bers wuo have no valet, while yet others take copious draughts ut almost boiling water. All our pr, tessionnl men about town find itueees sary to resort to Russian baths once ot twice a week. All these thing* are done to restore tbeir enfeebled systems and to produce an ap pearance the next morning, alter adtntier in a spree, that will justify the assertion ail drinking men like to make, that they never leel the effects of wnat they drink at all. It wouldn’t do to apoear looking seedy. It wud be a reflection ou a rounder’s manhood. But it is amazing h ivv fresh these methods nearly all make these oversociable men appear—that is, until the day comes when they break down allugetuer and became either wrecks or dead raep. One of the hardest drinkers in the city is the “out of doors man” of a great champagne house—a ruddv, corpulent young Frenchman, whom vou tr quently P-aye a daybreak “settingup” me thirtieth or fiftieth bott e in a barroom and see next atternnou springing along Broadway like a gaze! e. lie telis ms that he lias found that tin best curative for bad habits is plenty of sleep, and so lie never allows nimsell t be awakened.but sleeps until he is cured, even if it takes twelve or fourteen hours. Btu whatever the process may be. one must have some curative in order to be a rounder in those rapid uavs, or else the tasu-st thing about anew beginner’s ex perience will be tne rapidity with wnicu he will get into the hospt al or the grave.

New York, Feb. 6.—Although Mrs. Terry has been in New York four w eks, and is now lully restored to health, sue has scarcely been seen by any one except her counsel aud a very few intimate Irieuds. She has rarely left the seven-room apart ment wtiica sue occunies with baby Ju anita Teresita, the heiress of six millions. She is impatiently awaiting the trial of her libel suit against the World.

It. a ill Ocala, Feb. s.—Marion’s chief city bears little resemblance to-day to the so called “city” of three or four years ago. Then there were straggling wooden buildings of all sizes and in all condi tions of wear, clustering around a tottering old court house, with a sickle-looking picket fence around it. crowding together as it for comfort and sympathy. But now how different the picture. A beautiful brick structure for a courthouse, with a neat iron fence, and surrounded on allfour sides by brick and stone blocks remarkable for their elegant and handsomely designed exteriors; two banks, wholesale and retail merchants by the score, two enterprising newspapers and magnificent hotels all prove that • fcaia is going ahead, and at a rapid rate, too. The Ocala graded school will observe Arbor day, as r- quired by Gov. I’errv, on Feb. 9. We wonuer if this good ex ample will be followed elsewhere. Dr. Thompson and Editor Harris of the Banner, intend ereo ing very soon a handsome two-story brick block, 60x100 leet. Several o'bci fine buildings are in process of erection. VARIOUS MATTERS. The grade on the Florida Railway and Navigation extension has reached f’fan t C tv. The iron is now laid to Owens boro, at the Junction of the South Fieri, da. An injunction there met them last month and it yet remains undissolved. The matter will probably be amicably settled soon and a union depot will be put up at, the crossing. The Florida Railway and Navigation has just secured a charter tor an exten sion of its line Iroin Plant City tn Bur ow —2B miles—and will probably begin work there soon. Supt. Maxwell and Chief Engineer Btishnell were at Plant City Wednesday looking over tue grading on the extension. A serious accident occurred at the Withlacoocliee river crossing of the Flor ida Railway aud Navigation Tuesday. As the construction train was backing down over a long trestle it ran down a “oole” car.on which were several men. Seeing their danger i he occupants ot i Uecar hast ily jumped off to the ground beneath, some eighteen teet, and two of them (colored) broke tbeir legs. The injured men were carried, to camp and comiortably cared lur. It was a careless piece ot business, anyhow, and might have resulted lar more dis astrouslv. The County Commissioners of Her nando have offered to bear t,be expense ot all exhibits sent Horn their county to the South Florida Exhibition at Orlando. This is a stroke of enterprise in the right direction, but tbs Commissioners are ag grieved | because the Orlando people do not readily second tne plan. As the News representative understands it it is a South Florida Exhibition, and is not in tended to be confined to one county. All are welcome and the people ot Hernando w ill have a cordial reception there. A. P. Jordan and W. 11. Hawk have leased the Hernando County News (Brooksville) of the Pratt Bros. Mr. Jordan will be editor and Mr. Hawk bus iness manager. Maj. N. R. Gruelle. Superintendent of the Sara Sota, Orlando and Gulf railroad, was handsomely “watched” to-day by bis associates on the road. It was an elegant gold Elgin watch, Raymond movement, fine jeweled, and a beauty every way. It was suitably inscribed. The present was a complete surprise to the affable Major, and silenced his usually eloquent tongue at once. Another railroad Is projected. It is the -‘St. Joan’s River, Lake Weir and Gulf railroad,” from Lake George on the St. John’s to Anclote on the Gulf. It is to be 120 miles long, and passes through a very lei iile and well populated belt, h built it will have the important feature oi deep water at its tennli i. TAMP V s T riLL-T. No Complaint of Missing Tourists— The Strike Nearly over. Tampa, Fla., Feb. s.—lt may be Eig nitieaut that Tampa, which is now recog nized as the metropolis of South Florida, has no cause to complain of “missing tour ists.” Our hotel registers show a heavy increase over last winter and any previ ous season. Tampa’s only trouble is in the fact that she has not hotels enough, her greatest and most pressing need being a $290,000 h del. and J am pleased to iniona the world, through the columns oi the Morning News, that the prospect of her scouring stum a buildi g, before ibe open mg of another tourist’s season, is flattering. The present indications are that the cigarmakers strike ai Yttor City is about ended. About tinny of tbe sinkers went to work yesterday. P<-rnaps there are some Cubans who will not re-enter Yo >r A Co’s, factory and may leave ttie town, but if they doothers will come. The com pany is determined not to accede ttie U-tnands of tbe cigarmakers to rein9lat- Benitez as foreman, and Messrs, Ybor A Cos. have the sympathy of tbe business men and leading cit zena of this city in their action, and their assertion ot the right to control thoir own business. Toe company continues to build more Houses in Ybor City aud to make lurther im provements. J. E. Ingraham, President of tbe South Florida Railroad Company, has been in the city several days this week, and has succeeded in perfecting terms wrh the Board ol Trade. County Commissioners and Common Council whereby a bridge is to be constructed aoross the Hillsborough liver, to be used jointly hv the railroad and by the public u a carriage way. The purpo-e of tbe railroad company is lo ex tend its line to deep water on l ampa bay. Tue terminus will be in West Tamna, but Ute new depot will be erected on the Tampa sde proper. The bridge is to be completed within four months and is to c 'St about $2!).00D. This is un impnriaut movement lor tne permanent benefit of Tampa. The City Council has aocepted a pro position Irotn North Tampa to l'oim a part of the corporation ot lamps, whieu makes an important extension ot the city limits and adds about l,odd to the popula tion* Toe Postmaster here has placed a mail box on Frunkliu street tor tue accommo dation of the public.

I wonder it anything can be more de ligbttiil than the Indian river country at this point. The walk along the bauk of the river is beautiful, running for miles tbrougti tall palmetto and live oak trees, with the broad river on one side and or ange groves on the other side, while flocks ot ducks keep constant revel on tUe wa ters. regardless ol tue Ireqttent passing of boats, and sea gulls flit here and there above, dipping occasionally into the water, and are ot! man instant. Gn Saturday we had a glorious sail in the “Belle ot Malabar,” whose polite cap tain is perfectly at home on the water. We couuted fifteen other sails in view, and two or three small steamboats, one ot winch was smaller than our sail-boat, and was propelled bv the use of kerosene oil instead of wood. She passed rapidly by us, quite independent of the wind. Numerous little row-boats helped to en liven the scene, ami far up the river we could see ttie smokeol tbe steamer “Rock Ledge” (coming down from Titusville), hours before she would arrive at tins place. Whan we came here a few weeks ago 1 was too much out of health to enjoy any thing, but this balmy salt air has so in vigorated ms that t now take p easure in walking, rowing and sailing (boats are tue conveyances here), and l also do full justice to the oysters, fish, game and other good things, with wuich Mr. Mac- Rae keeps the taoles of the “Tropical” bountifully supplied.

New York, Feb. o.— A tin lighthouse twelve or iiKeen feel high Is perched on ibe roof of Wattack's Theatre. Electric lights shine trnni the tower and it at tracts the attention of the passers-by and advertises Harbor Lights. The produc tion ol the play w.as notable. A fashion able audience assembled and the scenic effect was superb. It isn’t much of a play, but that never seems to make any particular difference at Wallack's. After the first act the audience fell to gossiping garrulously. “I see that Wallaek lias a lighthouse on the roof,” said a mao in front of me lo his neigh bor. “Yaas,” drawled the other—a noted gambler. “It’s au effort to get even, you know. ••How s”, me boy?” “He has had lighthouses under bis roof so long that he is trying to balance things.” The patronage at Wallack’s has been woiullv slim during th • year so far, and It is not believed that Harbor Lights will increase it. It’s a tine spectacle from the scene-maker’s point of view, but the dramatic stuff' is of the poorest aud most meagre character, and whatever is ac ceptable is trite and stale. There Is no reason that 1 can see why an intelligent man should attend the play a second time unless it is to admire the mechanical t fleets. There are some good actors in the company, but they seem to regard their connection with tne piece in tne light ot au unimportant diversion. The continued id, fortune of this theatre has excited a great deal ot talk recently. The series of failures during the past three seasons is of extraordinary length. Les ter Wallaek himself is reputed a poor man, though he was once the owner of fa-t yachts, town and country houses an t considerable holdings iu ciry real estate. Another ot tue first nights this week l saw Miss Helen Dauvray essay the char acter of Peg Woffington. Tuere is not much about Miss Dauvray to admire ex cept her piuck, and this certainly is be j ginning to win appreciation. She devotes au endless amount of trouble to her pro duction, and do s not seem to be in the least dismayed by frequent failures, ruere are rumors of an outbreak in the matter ot lawsuits at tbe Lyceum Thea ire. Miss Dauvray gart/'Bronson How ard $5,000 lor a play which proved a trilling fizzle. Sue withdrew iho play, and Manager Frobman begin suit against ner for taking it off so ab ruptly. Thereupon she turned around and began suit against the author lor not writing a star part lor her as he had agreed to. Meanwhile sue got Peg Wolfing on in shape. It isn’t a profound go. I'tie Peg Woffington of hjntory was the most beautiful woman of the English s age and when Rose Logolan. at the height of her beauty and laiue, played the part she gave it a charm and attractive ness that made a deep impression. Miss Dauvray, who is uudersiz -d, lar from beautiful and without any particular dis unctiou ol tace or figure did not succeed in giving the part any artistic import ance. 1 went to a dime museum last week, at tracted by a card of invitatiou wiuen ex ploded the graceful figure of a woman finely developed and lying on a luxurious coucn wuile she underwent the pro cessor tattooing. Toe arlist was iepre- SLntnd in the act oi completing the work. A distinguish'd body of first nigbt ers were invited to be in at the finish. They were all theie. Butinstead of the comely female there was a large, austere and disdainful Fourta warn tough, with an asthmatic cough, who submitted to toe tattooing with surly de fiance. Altogether it was a week of disappointments. Blakely Hall. MRS. WHI INKY’S U Vi’.Y. Mrs.Clevelaml's Remarkable Dream in Relation tolls Advent. from th* Xt io }’ rk Herald.
