KEN SING TON This beautiful and handsomely located suburban town, situated on the Metropolitan Branch of the B. & O. R. R., but a few moments' ride from Washington, D. C, is fast assuming rank among older towns. There have already been erected fifty-five dwelling-houses, several stores, three churches, graded public schools, a handsome railroad station, and telegraph, post, and express office. Over seven hundred trees have been planted and boxed, and graded and macadamized streets and substantial pavements have been laid. From ten to twelve more houses have been contracted for, to be built this summer, one to cost over $12,000, also another large church, to be built early in the spring. All of this has been accomplished in less than one year under the management of Messrs. HALDEMAN. EEAL ESTATE DEALERS, 60S IB1 ST. IsTORTHWBST.

Mr Deak Lodisr: What n delightful finish tho Mardi Urns festival la Now OrlcanB makes to tho season thero ! It Is a wonder an attempt at such a street pageant Is not made here, for w ashlngton Is fast becoming a cosmopolitan city. Louts has just returned from tho South and is enthusiastic ovor tho sights in Now Orleans during tho carnival. For tho first time in my life 1 have learned something definiioof tho history of tho carnival organizations in Now Orleans. Tho celebration of tho carnival thoro differs from that of Homo inasmuch as in tho latter city each individual masker disports himself as his will suggests, whilo in Now Orleans tho participants turn out as members of regular organizations. Thero ore various as sociations that maintain extensive establish ments which provido tho material for theso magnificent displays. They are In every Bonso of tho word secret organizations. Their store houses and factories aro opon only to tho ini tiated. Who tho initiated aro is an impenetrable mystery. Tho first appearanco of an organized Mardi Gras procession on tho streets o'f SHavr Orloans was In 1857, when tho "Mystic Krowo of Uomus" dazzled and delighted tho gay popu lation of Now Orleans In a torchlight pro cession, representing upon vans scones from Milton's ''Paradise Lost." It was .a magnifi cent scenic street pageant, and went right to tho spot in the hearts of tho denizens of tho Crescent City. Since that tlmotothcr organiza tions have sprung up, notably that of ,lRox,M whoso display is always a daytime one, while tho Mystic Krowo only appear at night. Louis tells mo of a remarkable sight on Canal street. It was that of a plainly-dressed woman walking silently along holding in her uplifted hands lottery tccta;arranged like a paper fan 1 So the lottery business yet kicks, and wo thought it dead as a doornail. Lent was quietly Ubhered in here, and is now over two weeks old and seems much older. Tho lull that followed Ash Wednesday will probably remain unbroken until ml-carGme. There is a great deal of calling still going on; card parties, luncheons and dlnnners aro in dulged in as proper Lenten diversions, and some fashionable women keep up their formal afternoon receptions. At St. Matthew's services aro being conducted by missionary priests, and tho attendance is very large, in cluding many of the most fashionable people of tho town. After all, how little is required of the faithful during the Lenten time in these days in comparison with the exactions of old I There was a time in England when meat was not allowed during tho entire period of Lent. In tho middle ages eggs were forbidden, and the dispensation to eat them could only be ob tained with great difficulty. In the time of Louis XIV it was tho custom to raise in the cab inet of tho King on Etfster Monday enormous pyramids of painted or gilded eggs, which were presented by His Majesty to the courtiers. After the long abstinence from eggs no doubt the gift was an acceptable one. Tho love of art is certainly developing oinong us, and judglug from the rapidly Increasing classes, including as mombers ladies whose youthful days are behind them, there must have been much dormant talent in the land. Mr. Paul Putzki, a favorite artist of this city, issued cards of invitation to an exhibition, of tho work of himself and pupils at his studio on New York avenue. The exhibit commenced on Mon day and ended in tho afternoon of Wednesday. In the nature of things, Mrs. Harrison is his star pupil, and truly her pieces of china painting are lovely. Mrs. Seranton, of Pennsylvania, exhibited a set of salad plates that show great tasto and skill; Mrs. Estes G-. Ilathbono orna mented a fruit dish with tho leaves and fruit of the strawberry vine in a very artistic manner; Mrs. W. H. Moses showed her talent In beauti fully painted salad plates, and Miss Swan, Mrs. Reeside, Mrs. Hillhouse, and Miss Moore con tributed gems to tho exhibit. Mr. Moser, tho water-color artist, is also having an exhibition at Fisher's art store. The numbara which gather before a picture-shop window prove that there is an Innate taste for the beautiful In art, which needs only to be cultivated to ac quire force. The Lenten piano recitals have begun. Tho first shot of the season has been fired by Miss Amy Hare, who on Thursday inaugurated at Mrs. Senator McPherson's a series of classic pianoforte recitals. I thought the entertain ment exactly fitted to the season It was so solemn. No doubt tho music appealed to tho artistic temperament of those among tho audi ence possessing cultivated musical talent. The next recital will tako place at Mrs. Walter Wood's; next at Mrs. Wanamaker'a; next at Mrs. Morton's; then at tho British Legation, and flrally at Belcourt, Dr. Hammond's resi dence. A subject of anxious comment is tho dearth of engagements. Thero are so few Easter wed dings In sight I And thoro never was such a scarcity of young men in society as during this winter. It is given as a causo for not having the annual Army and Navy Assembly tljat it was impossible to muster enough dancing men to make the affair a success. It Is too bad for tho buds, mauy of whom were launched with flying banners, music and flowers, and tho most fetching and symbolical of gowns. Thero was never a larger number of young ladies in so ciety, and many of them aro rich and yet tho men fail to materialize at parties given ex pressly for buds. Thero are men in society here who, like the poor, wo have always with us, but they are not looked upon as desirable catches. We'll hope for bettor things in tho coming Easter season, which promises to bo very jay. Ever yours, Alioe.
