A. BOSTON NOTION.
One of the "Boston notions," and a very
good one too, is what are called "vacation
schools." The idea was first put into prac.
tical operation a few years ago by Miss M.
E. Very, a teacher in one of the public
schools. Sho gathered forty-eight street
children about her in a chapel, and, unaided
Dy either money or labor, tried the experi
ment. It was sncoessf ul, and proved that the
need for it existed. There was only one
drawback to entire success. As the school
was held in a Protestant chapel, Boman
Catholic families would not allow their chil
dren to attend, notwithstanding the repeated
assurance that their religion would be re
jected and that the school would confine
itself purely to secular affairs. The next
year there was no school, but the year fol
lowing that the city gave, the use of one of
the public school-houses, and the "vacation
school" had 285 members. Miss Very was
the principal teacher an3 she had an assist
ant teacher and a sewing, teacher to share her
labors. In 1881 there were 485 names en
tered, and another school was opened. This
year other schools have been started and it is
estimated that between seven and eight hun
dred children are in daily attendance.
The object of these schools is to take poor
children away for a ebort time eaoh day from
the influences which do them harm, and to
teach them something that will benefit them.
But very little restriction is laid upon them
and the chief endeavor is to keep them cool,
comfortable, clean and happy. The mothers
of the children as a rule go out to work by
the day, and if this refuge were not open the
children would spend their time in the street.
One acquainted with the work the schools are
doing says : "The children regard the hours
spent in the school the happiest part of the
day ; they sing, they are read to, they have
little lessons in history, arithmetic and ge
ography, the girls embroider, sew, have their
pretty kitchen garden games, while the boys
draw, write, amuse themselves with puzzles,
all of them instructive and modelled in day.
The school rooms are cool and well venti
lated, the teachers are patient and pleasant,
and the three hours from nine until twelve
are the shortest hours in the day, and the
children are sorry when they are ended.
Cleanliness is strenuously insist
ed upon, and no child is admitted whose skin
is soiled and whose hair is unkempt. This
very rule forms a habit of cleanliness among
the children, and it becomes perceptible after
awhile in the clothing. To realize what the
influence has been one should have seen the
children as they were when they first came
to the Anderson street school and then see
them again as they are now. A tidier, more
comfortable looking set of children cannot be
found anywhere."
The rapid growth of the "vacation schools'
is very gratifying to the workers in them,
and it is thought they will outgrow private
government before long. In that case it is
hoped that the city will take them up and
carry them on.
public houses built on land belonging to the
church." He sharply comments upon the
inconsistency of the church's position, offer
ing in one hand a temperance tract and in tie
other a glass of liquor. For hionself he signs
no leases that do not contain a stringent atili.
liquor clause. The archbishop in reply com
mends Canon Wilberforce's own conduct, and
says that he will call the matter to the atten
tion of the ecclesiastical commissioners.
Governor McEnery, of Louisiana, iS not
entirely happy. He has been criticised for
signing a bill that had been incorrectly en
grossed. He has replied through the news,
papers that he followed the progress of a bill
through the printed journals of uach day's
proceedings, and that he must assume that
its enrollment when presented to him is ' ab
solutely correct, and that to attempt to su
pervise the clerical business of the Legisla
ture would not only be a great task, but im
pertinent. In regard to the case at issue he
said more particularly, that the bill was pre
sented to him on the day of adjournment ;
that all bills, to become laws, must be signed
before adjournment ; that on this day there
were nineteen bills sent him, all of which had
to be signed before noon ; and that if he had
taken the time to carefully read and collate
each bill with the original none could have
become 'laws. The Louisiana Legislature
might profitably follow the plan of the Con
necticut Legislature, and adjourn for a few
days just before the end of the session in or
der to give the Governor time to properly
examine the bills passed.
The increase in the consumption of coffee
is very striking. Twenty-five years ago the
quantity grown was estimated at 338,000
tons, but in 1879 the total was 590,000. The
consumption was greatest in the United
States. The principal coffee produoing coun
try is Brazl, the erop of 1880 being estima
ted at 280,000 tons, but when the emancipa
tion of the negroes is complete, as it
will be in twenty years, the question is
whether the coffee planters will be able to
find laborers enough to keep up this high
total. Next to Brazil come the Dutch In
dies, including Java and Sumatra, into
whioh the cultivation of coffee was intro
duced by Van Hoor in 1C69. It is only with
in the last quarter of a century that the cof
fees of Ceylon and tbe East Indies have been
exported in any quantity, but at the present
time the export of Ceylon coffee is 40,000
tons, and of East Indian coffee over 30,000.
The coffee plant has been found to do well in
some parts of Africa, such as the region ot
the Mozambique and the Cape Verde Islands ;
but it has not answered at Sierra Leone, on
the Guinea coast, at Natal, or in the Cape
Colony. Attempts are now being made to
acclimatize it in the Fiji Islands.

A test case, to determine whether or not
the elevated roads in New York are common
carriers for the reception, transportation and
delivery of freight, has been brought, under
a section of the general law of 1875. A firm
of stationers offered a parcel at an uptown
station, to be carried to Park place, and the
package was refused. The plaintiffs in this
suit allege that a certain news oompany and
specially favored persons are permitted to
send bundles, but that the general public is
denied the privilege. The decision in this
case will be awaited with imterest, for if the
elevated roads must carry freight the rapid
transit scheme will be seriously affected.

iio26 E. K. HAL ilj & SON.
Home Kussiftii o tcera recently got up a
very fantaatio affair in Warsaw. Adjutant
General Count Pillar and Prince Mijanowicz,
of the Hussars, conceived tbe idea of a Ro
man banquet in tbe style of Luoullus, and
twenty-six otber officers united in tbe novel
diversion. Tbe banquet ball was filled with
roses and perfumed with all the odors of
Arabia, and tbe feasters arrayed themselves
in Boman togas and wore garlands of roses
on their heads. Swallows' nests from India,
wild African pigeons and a ragout of night
ingales were among the costly viands with
which they were served. The banquet last
ed eight hours and cost $21,000, or $70
apiece. This gastronomioal extravagance has
provoked bitter criticism in Warsaw, where
it is denounced as a wicked imitation of the
wanton luxury which preceded the fall of the
Koman Empire, and where it has, at least,
done nothing to make more agreeable the re
lations existing between the Polish popula
tion and tbe Russian garrison.
the syllable, "born," and repeats it five times.
The same 'ibinrr happens in tbe famous aria
"The trr.mrjet shall sound," on the syllable
cbang'd," a.'ad in two famous choruses of tbe
"Messia.h" the words "hallelujah" and
"amen" are repeated hundreds of times in
nearJ.y as many bars of music. But, of
cou f8e, Handel belonged to that class of mu
s'.cal composers who believed that music
;hould express tbe meaning or the sentiment
of the word, and not to those so-called ad
vanced persons who pretend that the muaio,
and that even a synonym of the same word
would require another interpretation In mu
sic.
Musical hypocrites are also those wh. trr
to persuade the -public that melody is not a
necessary requirement for the composition of
dramatic music, and who prefer opera, with
out melody. Herr Von AVollzaRen, a Ger
man musical critic, has published a list of
the "leit motifs" (leading motive.) of Wag
ner's "Nibelungen," and tell ua that there
are ninety of them in tbe four operas which
constitute the "King of the Nibelungen,"
each consisting of a short phrase, or a cer
tain passage in the orchestra, or a certain fig
ure on a single instrument, intended to repre
sent or describe the character of the different
personages in the play, and recurring from
time to time at the entry or exit of tbe prin
cipals in the opera ; but Mr. Wollzagen
neglects to inform us how many "right
square" melodies are to be found or heard
in that quadruple operatic drama. It is to
be understood from this omission on his
part that the melodies in "Nibelungen" are
so numerous that it is impossible to count
them, or is to be inferred that melody is not
essential to an opera, and that illustrative
phrases or peculiar harmonic combinations,
repeated in various forms, and modified by
different instrumentation, are sufficient ?
Such a theory would remind the reader of
the story of the fox, who, having lost his
brush, started the doctrine that foxes' brush-
were out of fashion, and exhorted all the
other foxes to cut off their brushes and to
uas tbe little remaining stumps as "leit mo
tif."
Heat From Hammering.
From the Edinbarg Review.
Theory assumes that the sun is a stupendous
anvil in the course of being perpetually ham
mered upon by falling meteors, and that its
heat energy is maintained by this hammering
as a lump of iron is kept red hot by the vig
orous blows of a blacksmith. Sir William
Thomson undertook to calculate how much
heat might be furnished to the sun by this
process if the planets, instead of meteors,
fell into it, and he came to the conclusion
that by such instrumentality the sun might
be sustained in its present state for nearly
40,000 years. The plausible point about this
theory is that scientific investigation hag
proved that if a moving body is Btopped, a
degree of heat is generated where the resist
ance comes into play which ia in proportion
to the mass of the moving body and to tha
square of its velocity of movement. A body
weighing a trifle mora than 16 hundred
weight, and moving at the rate of a little
more than 39 inches in the second, if stop
ped, would generate enough heat to raise 2
pounds of water at freezing temperature 1"
of centigrade, or 1.83 Fahrenheit. If it
were moving with the speed of a cannon-ball
that is, 546 yards per second it would
generate 250,000 times as much heat, or
enough to raise a mass of water equal to it
self nearly 300 of centigrade. If it were
moving with the velocity with which a plan
et would fall into the sun, it would generate
nearly 2,000,000 times as much heat, or
enough to bring a mass many thousand times
larger than itself into vivid incandescence,
far exceeding that which could be produced
by any combustion. A mass of matter, equal
to about the hundreth part of the earth, fail
ings very year from the earth's distance, would
in this way suffice to maintain the sun's heat
radiation permanently. The ohief strength
of this conception, it will be observed, is the
use wnicn it makes of the fact of the contin
uous inorease of velocity, in the square of
the augmentation of speed. Its obvious
weakness, on the other hand, is the extreme
improbability that any such quantity of mat
ter can be thus thrown meteorically into the
sun. If meteoric material was so abundant
in space the earth's share, instead of fur
nishing it with an occasional pyrotechnics!
display, ought to batter its mass in a year into
tnenemperature sometning nke that of boil
ing water, such a mass added to the sun
would serve to aocelerate the movement of
the planets and to shorten their periods of
revolution in consequence of the solar at
traction. If, again, there were any meteono
gatherings near the sun, capable of yielding
such copious contributions, these would of
necessity produce very manifest disturbances
in the movement of the planet Mercury. But
nothing of this kind has been detected. In
consequence of these considerations the con
clusion almost unanimously adopted by as
tronomers is to the effeot that although some
accession to the sun's heat may possibly be
derived from the impact of meteors falling
into its substance, it is very improbable that
the gain from this cause can reach anything
like tbe amount whioh is ascribed to it in
Mayer's theory. The verdict of mere com
mon sense is certainly quite uncompromising
ly and unconditionally in the same direction,
especially when it is taken into account that
the anvil upon which the meteoric blows
have to be delivered is more of the nature of
an air-cushion fastened upon a nucleus of
"putty," than of the iron mass upon which
the blacksmith operates.
Old Time Clowns.
Canon Basil Wilberforoe has written a let'
ter to the Archbishop of Canterbury which
has already made some stir, and will prob
ably make more. It deals with the fact that
property owned by the established church is
leased for drinking saloons. It charges the
bishops and archbishops in their corporate
capacity with being "perhaps the largest
owners of public house property in the coun
try," and adds that "so well is this fact
known among the "Working classes that fre
quently in the western road from Hyde Park
corner, through KnightBbridge, they are in
the habit of pointing, as typical of the estab
lishment, to a church of England on the
right hand side of the way, near Albert gate,
having a gin palace on eaoh side of it, built up
side by side in a row, the place of worship and
the gin-Bhops being all church property." "It
is stated," the canon continues, "and I believe
it would be found to be a fact, that the bish
op of London, when he leaves his house in
St. James' square and rides to his palace at
Fulharo, passes on his road more than ion
Motltul Hypocrite.
Max Maretzek, in the Hour.
Hypoorites are found in every class of so
oiety in politics as wen as in tne pulpit ; in
public and private life ; in the seminaries for
young ladies, as well as in the penitentiaries
for old offenders. Hardly anything that is
good and true in the world escapes the influ
enoe of hypocrisy. In the realms of the
beautiful, the musical hypoorites ten times
outnumber those in the other branches of
art. One rarely finds among posts or intelli
gent readers anyone who would dare to say
that an ode, even if written by Horace him
self, a story by Dickens, a fable by La Fon
taine, or a sensational sermon by some fash
ionable preacher, takes a higher rank in liter,
ature than a tragedy by Shakespeare, Sohil
ler or Goethe. In music, however, it is dif
ferent, and among musicians and musical
dilletanti there are hundreds who would not
blush to declare that a string quartette, a
mass, a symphony or an . oratorio is of a
higher order of music than opera, even if
that opera should be "Don Juan," "Fidelio,"
"Lea Huguenots," or others of the highest
dramatic expression.
There are many people who would pre
tend to be horribly shocked at witnessing
the soene in the opera of Fra Diavolo, where
Zerlina goes to bed and tbe three robbers are
watching their opportunity to get undiscov
ered into Milord's room ; but the same peo
ple would gloat with unalloyed ecstaoy if the
Btory of "Susannah and the Elders," with
appropriate musio, were served to them in
the form of an oratorio. In nearly every
congregation there are bald-headed deacons
and green-spectacled elders who would abhor
tbe idea of visiting an operatio performance,
but who would listen with religious fervor to
melodies front Flotow's "Martha" orLeoocq's
"Girofle," adapted to the words of their
hymns and prayers, and who would end the
Sunday morning service with a march or
polka from Offenbach or Strauss ; and still
more curious, one may hear in many syna
gogues the "Inflammatus" or the "Quia est
Homo," from llossini's ' Stabat Mater,"
adapted to Hebrew words.
There is another kind of musical hypo
crites, who, in their eagerness to condemn
everything which does not belong to the new
school of "muBio of the future," will find
fault with floi id music, and will try to ridi
oule operatio composers like Kossini, Bellini,
and even Mozart, for repeating certain words
in their arias or concerted pieces, or for writ
ing many bars and runs and cadenzas in one
single word or even syllable. These same in
fallible judges, however, would never dare to
mention Handel, and to point out in his
"Messiah" the same incongruity. However,
the "Messiah" of Handel is not an opera,
but an oratorio, and to attack Handel would
be considered a crime or a folly and would
lower them in the estimation of the clergy.
In the quartette "For unto us a child was
born. "Handel, in his "Messiah," writes a
, m9. uevy .(ouf bRrg and flfty.gjjj aotog on
his reputation as a jester by imitating Wal
lett in his Shakespearean and poetical quota
tions, but would have done better had be
confined himself to legitimate clowning,
which was bis natural forte. "William Stout
was educated for the ministry before he took
to clowning, and was in bis day famous not
only as a clown, but as a wrestler and a
herculean performer. It never appeared
that his early religious training did him much
harm in his business. Bill Gates graduated
from clown to comedian at the Old Bowery
theater.

Remembered by Frank Wltlttaker.
From the New York Sun.
The first great clown that I recollect was
Archy Madden in the old Mount Pitt circus
at the corner of Grand and Pitt streets. He
was a comic singer, a fair tumbler, a medium
still vaulter, could run and vault, rode two
horses, and would keep people is a roar by
his clownish ways. "Old Skent" was the
name he was popularly known by I can't
say why and he was a great favorite with
the New York publio, who used to pack the
house at his benefits always, rain or shine.
Maj Gen. Sanford,who was part owner of the
Lafayette Amphitheater, was a particular
friend of his, and one time Arohy played in
both the Amphitheater and the Mount Pitt
circus in one evening, which was considered
a great feat in those days. He eventually
left the profession and turned temperance
lecturer, in which vocation he was quite as
successful as he had been in clowning, for he
had the power to make his audience cry and
laugh by turns. Walter Williams, who came
over here clowning with an English circus
and played at the Broadway Amphitheater
afterward the New York Tattersalls was a
fair general performer and a really good
clown, but could not rival Arohy Madden.
The next clown f note who recurs to my
memory was Joe Blaokburn, a gentleman
who had had a fine collegiate education, and
who took up the clowning business through
a liking for it simply. He traveled with
Oscar and Purdy Brown V - rjircTrs, the
best pertaining circus in the world
in my opinion, in those days at least, and
was a very ereat favorite in the South,
Another southern favorite, particularly in
Baltimore, was Bill Myers, a good tumbler
and an excellent clown. John Gossin oame
next, and was the boss in his day. John
May, Joe Pentland, Dan Gardner, Sam Thrift,
Bob Lowry, Sam Lathrop, Bill Creighton,
Mike Saunders, Aleck Rockwell, John Wells,
Joe Cleveau, Gill Kldred, Mat Buckley, Wilse
Hammond, Charley Austin, Archie Hughes,
Gil Uullen, Sam Lone. George Stone and
John S. Whittaker, all old-time clowns, were
not only clowns, but singers as well, and
riders, tumblers, vaulters, slack and tight
rore and wire performers, and several of
them were srood actors also.
A very accomplished clown of the old time
was Nat Austin, or, perhaps, to do striot
iustice to him, I should say jester rather
than clown. He was a master of French,
Spanish and German, a generally well-educat
ed man. and one of tne best jesters mat ever
wore the cap and bells. Bill Worrell, the
father of those well known actresses, the
Worrell sisters, was a good clown in his day,
At one time I was ringmaster at Welch's
Ampthitheater, Ninth and Chestnut streets.
Philadelphia, when he, Pentland, Gardner
and Gossin were all nnder engagement, and
my place for the fortnight they were there
was not an enviable one, I assure you. They
were all oricinators, not the sort of clowns
that are made by teaching, but men of na
tive humor, who could always see and utilize
the funny side of anything, and they were
liable to Bprinc some new joke, or casr, or
trick on the rinsmaster at any moment.
Samuel Lathrop, the comedian, used to be a
good clown. Dilly Fay was a jester rather
than a clown, and was also an excellent por
trait painter. Out in Cincinnati his artistic
work was very highly appreciated. Arthur
Nelson, Dr. James Thayer and later Dan
llice. were all fine jesters, but the king in
their peculiar branch of the profession was
W. F. Wallett. He was, by long odds, the
best jester 1 ever heard, witty and prompt in
his repartees, with a keen sense of the hu
"morons hdc! an almost magnetie sympathy
with his audience that carried them right
along with him. In those days, 'you must
