ANECDOTES OF FRED ARCHER.
A London correspondent writes:
'Correspondents to tho nowspnneis
continuo to gratify the public tusto
for anything which concern the life
and habits of the 'great jockey.'
One of the most interesting of these
communiques is a personal study
contributed by Mr. Edward Delllio
to the Figaro, which so well illus
tiates the heron orship of which
Fred. Atelier was tho subject that I
shall make no apology for quoting
it in full. ' M. Dclillo says on dif
ferent occasions lie hud found him
self by the side of tho celebrated
horseman in France, Engl and, and
tho United States ; thus it happened
that he had assisted at more than
one curious incident, proving that
the premier jockey of the day en
joyed a truly extraordinary prestige
everywhere. An amusing Instance
of this assertion is given. Last
winter M. Dclllle was standing on
the steps of the Grand Hotel in
Trafalgar-square. Round tho prin
cipal entrance was grouped a
swarm of menials, who did not
seem to trouble themselves over
much about tho incoming guests.
jitit now a hansom approached with
tho rapidity of lightning, the cab
man pulled up his horse sharply,
and out stepped a young man, lull
and slim, wearing an overcoat trim
med with Astrachan reaching down
to his heels, lie cast a dull, tired
look around him; it was Fred.
Archer. You recognised him imme
diately by ins thin, pale, face, the
upper lip slightly raised, pushed up
by the two front teeth. Now, what
a clearing of the decks by tho ser
vants! A prince of the blood
would not have been better received.
The hansom cab driver beamed with
delight at having brought such an
illustrious personage, -and gave the
hotel servants full particulars as to
so lucky as to pick up "tho Great
Fred." Two hours afterwards, when
the sallc-a-manger of the Grand
Hotel was full all heads turned
simultaneously to see Mr. Frederick
Archer enter the room. He was in
evening dress, and looked exceed
ingly well. His gleaming linen set
off tho paleness of his complexion ;
his black, shiny hair was carefully
but simply parted in fact, there
was not a detail of his elegant toi
lette which was notperfectlycorreet.
Mr. Archer, formerly a stable lad,
looked at that moment like the most
distingue of gentlemen. If, how
ever, you went and seated yourself
at liis table, by the side of Captain
Barclay, his constant alcolylc, you
speedily saw that Fred. Archer's
distinction was only superficial.
Sneering ricanant also means gig
gling'J every moment, and larding
his lemarks with the most malapro
pos oaths, ho spoke in a drawling
nasal tone of his victoiics, his bets,
of all which concerned him person
ally. It was money which concern
ed him most. Frederick Archer
was very miserly; and tho other
jockeys, his rivals, say that the
great sobriety which distinguished
him was tho result less of virtuous
tendencies than of a horror of 'part
ing.' Like all true misers, Archer
not only wanted to keep all that he
had made, but to make as much
moro as possible. It is principally
owing to this characteristic beyond
a doubt that he has died 'ten times
a millionaire.' Other English jockeys
have earned large sums ; Archer is
the only ono among them who knew
how to keep bis money. M. Dclillo
tells another story of Archer at the
Folly (literally 'Foolo's Theatre,
says the writer, who doubtless by a
printer's error, is made to look like
well, what he dubs the play
houso). It was in 1877, and Archer,
who had pulled off tho Derby with
Lord Falmouth's Silvio, was in tho
stalls of Mr. TooIc'b Theatre witli
a friend. Lionel lirough, 'the
Christian of tho London stage,' who
never loses an opportunity of a
good 'gag,' had to say, 'I will fly to
such and such n place as quick as
thought;' but, recognising tho
favourite jockey among tho au
dienc, Brough exclaimed, 'I'll go
quicker than Fred. Aichcr.' Im
mediately all eyes were fixed on the
celebrated 'Freddy,' and cheers
burst out fioni all pails of tho
house. 'Freddy' could not stand this
fire of glances, nnd colored up until
his face was redder than the cap
which ho had worn tho day before
when steering Silvio to victory on
THE PARClTpOSfiNCREAT BRITAIN.
The Parcel Post takes high rank
among the recent developments of
tho postal system, and with the now
year there will bo still further ex
tensions. Tho moro populous colo
nies of Australia liavo enjoyed
parcel post sinco July, but now,
with tho exception of Queensland,
the whole continent 1ms tho advan
tage of interchanging parcels witli
the home country. Now Zealand
has still to bo added to the list, but
at the Cape nud other British pos
sessions tho woik is in full swing,
and most of these places have been
brought into communication with
each other nnd tho continent of Eu
rope. There is ns yet, however, no
scheme of compensation and insur
ance in l elation to foreign and Colo
nial parcels. In Canada the benefit
of tho Parcel Post is greatly dimin
ished by certain vexatious restric
tions, nrising from tlia system of
protective duties. In many Cojojjies
,rrri innnig.1 - ir
thcro is an unfortunate hostility to
free trade, which makes tho authori
ties unduly sensitive on the subject
of their taxes, and is inimical to
commercial progress and a closer
union with this country. "With ic
irnrtl to Europe, Franco still stands
out, nnd thcro is, as yet, no means
of posting a parcel to the country
which is oiir nearest Continental
neighbor. This hampers the tralllc,
not only between England and
France, but communication by tho
shortest and quickest routes to other
places is also prevented. The num
ber of Colonial parcels is rapidly
increasing, and the public, it ap
peals, arc well satisfied with the
way in which its parcels have bbeu
delivered. Homo News.
MASONIC BENEVOLENCE IN 1 880.
Tho precise income for tho year
just expired of the three principal
English Masonic Chaiitics, support
ed by voluntary contiibulions, wasre
ccntly ascertained. The total
amount wns iM6,7(J7 13s. 9d., or
7. 0188s. lOd. less than in 1885,
and 2,100 less than in 1881. The
Masonic Benevolent Institution
heads the list with 18,191 l!Js. Cd. ;
the Boyal Masonic Institution for
Girls comes next with Jt,lo,olo -is.
lOd. ; and the Koyal Masonic In
stitution for Boys, unfortunately,
has no more than i'ia,050 los. fid.,
or, witli one exception, the lowest
amount it has had in any one of the
last eight years. At the end of last
year the average per year for seven
yeais of the three institutions was
i' 19,223 ; the average now per year
for eight yeais is reduced to -18,-918.
Tho average for 1885 was in
excess of that of tho previous six
years, but last year the average was
greatly reduced. "Witli the greatly
increasing demand on the institu
tions the craft will now have to
exert themselves to the utmost to
keep their charities in pace witli the
times. The above institutions arc
not the sole charities of llic Order,
for many of tho piovinccs, like
Yorkshire, Lancashire, and Chc-
cational funds, which ate doing a
large amount of good both in giving
annuities to the aged and educating
the young; and besides these the
Mark Degree, which lias a grand
lodge of its own, lias funds for
granting relief, and an excellent
fund for educating children in the
localities in which they live, and
also for clothing thorn. This record
of usefulness would be incomplete
if the Fund of Benevolence belong
ing to the United Grand Lodgo were
not mentioned. The board which
administers this fund meet once
every month, and its average awards
aic nearly 1,000 a sitting. Home
