Of odurse, everybody talked about Mrs.
Zelie's marriage. I can still wiits Mrs.
Leslie, for it is understood between the
two iparties who havethe right to reach that
nuderitanding that the bride is still to be
llown as Mrs, Frank Ieslie, so far, at
ast, as commercial afairs are concerned,
gad Mrs. Leslie is essentially a business
It was funny that every newspaper in
New York save one had'Mrs. Leslie married
at the Church of the Stranger. The truth
is of course, that the rather impromptu
affair took place at Delmonico's, Dr.
Deems, old Commodore Vanderbilt's favor
its preacher, tied the knot. Dr. Deems,
who is editor of -one of Mrs. Leslie's publi
cations, has delivered some charming leo
tares on matrimony. I remember hearing
one of these as long as Afteen years ago.
The fact that the droll little fellow, Mar
shall P. Wilder, the humorist, was one of
the witnesses, gives everybody an opporta
nity to have a little joke about the groom
being Wilds and the witness Wilder. Some
said that the wildest was the Marquis de
Leuville. Wilder once turned to me at din
nor and asked me if heard the bad joke
that the Londoner liked to get off when he
was in England four years ago. The con
undrum was: Why is the Yankee humorist
like the Irish leader. O'Connor? Answer
One is a wild M. P., while the other M. P.
Wicked people like to guess how much
older Mrs. Leslie is than "Willie" Wilde.
They remember that the lady was married
to the late Frank Leslie in 1864, and that
she had been married a certain number of
years before she secured the divorce that
made this marriage possible But if Mrs.
Leslie is as young as she looks-in a photo
graph-it is really out of place to recall
these dates.
Another thing that has just been exciting
gossip is Inspector Byrne's sensational raid
on the pool rooms. The law forbids pool
aslling outside of the race tracks. To over
come this little restriction the pool rooms
decided to take the ostensible .position of
agents for the track pool sellers, pretending
,to transmit bets directly to the race tracks
and to be interested merely to theextent of
a commission. To heighten the illusion
they put in telegraph instruinents, and it
was pretended that each bet was transmitted
direstly to the track pool office. The
t'bluff'actually passed the scrutiny of the
courts, which deeided that bets could be
-received by agents in this manner. In
fact, nothing of the kind was done. The
betting was done in' New York and the
money passed and repassed in New York,
and the betting man understood the situa
tion perfectly.
Byrnes' device for trapping the pool sell
ers was Ingenious. Detailing a corps of
his detectives he had the men set their
watches in harmony with the central office
chronometer. Then he sent a detachment
of the men to the race track to determine
the exact moment at which each race
started. The remainder of the men located
themselves at four or five different pool
rooms and placed bets on different
events, keeping. record of the time up
to which money was received on each race.
As was to be expected, when the track men
telegraphed the time of starting it was dis
covered by comparison with the other rec
ords that money had been received in each
case after the time when selling was stopped
on the track, proving that the bets were not
actually being transmitted. Down pounce
the Byrnes men and the staffs of a batch of
pool rooms are looked up.
This, of course, is only in illustration of
those spasms of official morality with which
New York is periodically seized. It does
not mean, I am afraid, that the pool rooms
are likely to go out of business.
The remarkable furore occasioned by the
advent of ex-President Cleveland's baby
daughter gave way before the torrent of
speculation concerning the probable influ
ence of Parnell's death upon the Irish home
rule party. New York; it is to be noted,
has always been to a considerable extent an
anti-Parnell center. Whereas either Phila
delphia or Chicago might have from time
to time given evidence of more or less erm
pathy with the deposed Irish leader,
the empire state metropolis has shown
symptoms ofooldness toward Parnell, turn
ing with what to many may have siemed
like inexcusaable fickleness from the leader
to those whom he had led. At any rate,
New York seems anxious to believe that
Parnell's death will heal the differences be
tween the two wings of the party, and has
been readier in hiebelief that the bitterness
would disappear than have many observers
in other parts of the country.
Teaching Them Ameriean.
New York finds itself from time to lime
with a big educational contract on its
hands. Every year thousands upon shoe.
sands of Germans, Italians and French
men learn in New York how to speak the
English language-or you can call it Ameri
'an if you like.
Not only does New Yorkstruggle with the
uninformed foreigner in th ordinary course
of business and social life. but it makes a
specific school house effort to place our in
teresting language in the possession of the
new comers. The night schools are open
and are crowded every night by a curious
company of students whose specific object
in a large number of cases is the mastery
of the English tongue. To 'failitate the
education of the very large niajoritv oi
German applicants, what are called "Ger
man classes" have been formed. These
classes, of which there are sometimes half
a dozen or more in a school are presided
over by teache a familiar with German and
competent to impart EngliSh.
The pupils who go to these German
classes often make up a picturesque com
pany. The range of ages is extremely
wide, extending from 15 to 50, and even
higher. A flaxen-haired, youngish man,
who gave his name.at the registration thb
other night, and waited while the young
man executed the selling of his complica
ted patronymic, turned to the giLrl who was
unmistakably a daughterof thes lihine, and
who stood by with some awe and folded
hands, and said: "This is my woman."
Man and wife, are indeed not unfre
quently seen at these evenig eolasses.
tbometimes the man hias been in the
country a little longer than the
women--long enough to earn the where.
withal to bring her over-and having a
differing knowledge of the language
they have to go into sepItrate classeas for
there is a graded system desia ned to facili

the closing hour.
To the great 'bulk of the pupils attend
