CHAT AND CHAFF.
A recent magazine story entitled “The
Brown-Stone Boy” deals with a subject o.f
live interest in a most realistic manner,
though the tiGe is somewhat suggestive, of
prehistoric times. How&yer the sketch is
only christened aft^r the abode of the snb
j e 4, he having resided in one of the brown
sto ie dw dii igs ; e suliar to tins city. He also
b.'longei^ to a “gang” and was what would
be termed a “tough” in New York or a
“hbodb m" in San Francisco. But his most
Striking'.•har;:.4'i , i.'i:-tic is the naive and open
nmmrj'i whbh h? acknov,Ldg. s hi* de
.'impt-n.'. i s ami the absence of any feeling
of shame or guilt. In fact he rather seems
to con .cr his misdeeds as a rec nd to be
pr<»ud oi. la thisTcsp.ct he brings to mind
the many har nl s.s young men npw-a-Juys
vh-> seek t > uei i v_> a fame for tong nm-s.
In purs'i of such rcpaialion they affect a
K i; uiag air when alludirg to Ihe traps and
guiles, of tl is gieat city, settle th ir hats
j oiitily on the ,e.:r pat of th ir craniums
aid uu'mr icji tneinsclves of personal ex
pUsts. which it. true, would prove them fit
ea i'.i I des for a tef am school. Somc
"ii s this hmgiag to be considered tough
lead, t: em io a plunge ia t m evils they de
sen but in most er s their only offence
is am i ot truth and in thu insult offered the
credulity of their hearers. .
Tne season of prayer aid fasting has been
f ii; ly entered upon and the pleasures of the
’’mudding mob ’ have been exchanged bv
many for the sober realization of life's du
ties. The numerous church services de
mand much of the time of the faithfu’, and
those who contemplate the relief of their
sponsors from the obligations assumed at
baptism are under ins'ruction in the cissies
preparing for confirmation. Yet the neces
sities of social existence find ample play in
the opportunity afforded for paying' the
long accumulated debt of calls iucurrc 1 by
the winter’s festivities. Sundays not being
included in the days of fasting dinners may
be indulged in with immunity to both giv
ers and guests. The Lenten Club makes a
requisition upon the talent of its. members
for the exercise of their various gifts in the
departments of music, elocution, invention
(of excuses for non-performance), and
others too numerous to mention. Many
lax churchmen—and women also— avail them
selves of the season for partaking of theat
rical pleasures, while others perceive a pe
culiar propriety in whist parties—especially
stags. The City of Chinches falls into line
with the popular recreation of the day, and
provides a private roller skating rink, where
the poetry of motion may be illustrated on
tvheels with all the variety incident thereto.
In estnna’ing the expenses of this new wrin
kle, careful heads of families leave ample
margin for arnica and court plaster.
*
Calling being the occupation peculiar to
the season a word on some phases of the
custom may not he ami>s. The. professional
caller' who calls as a religious duty
and never omits to pay a hostess the
courtesy witniii an early j e. iod after the oc
casion incurring it, is usually a very young
man or else an eld rly one who retains the
punctilious habits of a previous generation.
Fur after afe w seasons’ activity t! eaverage
society man grows shamefully c.ireless in
full filling social duties, and his debts of un
im.de cdls assume such immense propor
iions that finally in despair of getting
around in person, he takes advantage of the
New Year’s practice of sending his cards by
mail. That this shirking of formal visiting
is 1 irgdy the r. suit of a love . f ease and
aversion to exertion isillustrat d by the fol
lowing incidei t, which bears the impress of
truth. A dozen or so young men wec
-1 -tinging aim!- s.-l . around a club room,
billiard room, or sum ■ o.h-r resort, when an
acquaintance entered, and in response to the
inquiry as to the caui) of I is immaculate
appearance, answered: “Oh, I went to pay
my party call at Mrs. Blank’s. She was at
the theatre, but 1 left a card.” With one
accord the whole dozen or so, who had also
been at Mrs. Blank’s party, rose and pro
duced or borrowed cards, and in detach
ments of twos and threes moved upon Mrs.
Blank’s residence and showered the paste
boards, with expressions of deep regret at
her absence from home. The only kind of
call which seems to possess any attraction
for the gilded (or brazen) youth of the
period is a tete a tete one, on some attract
ive acquaintance of the opposite sex. Then
his aversion to exertion manifests itself in
a reluctance to depart, causing the heads of
households much brain work in the devising
of polite method's of indicating that a leave
taking would be acceptable. Of course few
have the hardihood of the Western parent
who lights the kitchen fire and rings the bell
for breakfast as a hint to the obtuse caller,
but au invention which would secure
the prompt exit of the tarrying one without
damage to any of the parties, would, in the
language of the ancients, fill a long felt
want.
Doings of Congress.
At their last session a highly interesting
program was carried out. The first bout
of the evening came when Massachusetts in
the roll of States was reached, two members,
Messrs. J. T. Williams and W. M. Ran
doph responding, the speaker called for an
explanation, which resulted in a very
spirited debate, Mr. Randoph claiming that
for Mr. Witliams to respond to the call of
Massachusetts was an assumption un
equalled even by the gentlemen's superiors,
and that for him to assert that he repre
sented Massachusetts while he was in pos
session of certified documents to the con
trary was a piece of arrogance intolerable.
Mr. Williams hotly responded and the mat
ter was referred to the committee on creden
tials, who is expected to report at the next
session. Air. Wedaman’s bill for th? ap
pointing of a committee for the investiga
tion of alleged election fraudshad its first
reat ing and was well received. Mr. J. T.

tion of emigration and succeeded in having

THE DOWN-TOWN TEACHERS.
Why Are They Not Properly Re-
instated ?
To the Editor of The Freeman:—Daily
may be seen three of our distinguished lady
teachers leaving the down-town school in
the morning. It was ascertuined upon in
quiry that they had not been re-instated,
h:ul no classes assigned them, and they sim
ply report each day for duty. The colored
teachers’ question continues a problem diffi
cult of solution. In the up-town school the
teachers who were dismissed aie allowed by
trustees and Principal the enjoyment of the
ruling of the court in the case of one of
their number dismissed under the numbers’
requirement of the Board of Education.
They are re-instated, paid for the time put
in, and it is generally conceded will be re
imbursed for lost time. This is an example
worthy of emulation by the down-town
school, where neither Trustees nor Principal
seem willing that the dismissed teachers be
permitted the common advantage of a very
just decision. No one can be found to bear
the responsibility for the removal of these
teachers who now receive neither support for
their efforts to be re-instated nor sympathy
for the peculiar position in which they find
themselves. Does the simple difference of
sex of the. Principals of these two schools
explain the great difference in their metho Is,
symfathies aid sue esies? There wasapl
parent from the inception of the trouble a
striking contrast of ways and means with
one-sided results; if not, why are these com
pelled to make this daily, wearying pilgrim
age t> no purpose. But the end is not yet.
An Observer.
The Forty-Second Anniversary of
tae G. U. O. of O. F.
Last Monday evening as early as eight
• o’clock Mt. Olivet Baptist Church contained
. between four and five thousand people, who
had come to enjoy the celebration festivities
of the forty-second anniversary of Odd Fel
lowship in America. Upon the pulpit plat
form sat Revs. W. B. Derrick, R. 11. G.
Dyson, Doctor T.S. P. Mi ler and representa
tives of the G. M. Council No. 1, Hamilton
Lodge No. 710, Howard Union Lodge 1337,
Cedar of Lebanon Lodge 1864, Philomathean
Lodge 616, Terry Lodge 900, San Manuel
Lodge 1794, Harriet Martineau Lodge 2562,
New York Pa'riarcliie No. 2, and the
Daughters of Ruth, whose constituents filled
every seat of the central isles. The sight
was a gay one, brave-looking men and beau
tiful women resplendent in paraphernalia,
winch under the refulgence of a hundred
lights transported one to the fairy lands.
At 8:15 the organ sounded the first notes of
“See the Conquering Hero Comes,” which
was responded to by the stately marching iu
of the Lodges above named, after which
Rev. Dyson led the audience in prayer, and
at the conclusion Bro. Joseph R. Magill,
chairman, opened the anniversary exercises
in a neat little speech, which was followed
by speech-making and singing by Rev. Der
rick, Doctor Miller and several lady soloists,
chief of which latter was little Rosina Nick
son, whd, although apparently about
seven years of age, sang so sweetly “The
Leaves in the Garden Murmur” that the
audience had to be admonished of where
they were for their vociferous applause. As
historian Curtis was not present Rev. Der
rick filled his place and in his well-known
strain reviewed Odd Fellowship from its
conception to the present, and declared that
it stands ahead of all other organizations in
that it cares for its sick and buries its dead 3
His argument was a lunge at Masonry. Dr^
Miller, instead of the special “Results Good
and Evil,” delivered a fifteen minutes’
speech on general topics of Odd Fellowship.
Saving at times when his voice was low the
Doctor was attentively listened to, for his
remarks were intelligent and eloquent. Bro.
Chas. McKie, secretary, delivered the vale
dictory in a style which for elegance of dic
tion surpassed all of his late efforts in
speech-making. The organist and choir of
Mt. Olivbt Church performed their parte
admirably and “Ave Maria,” sung by Mme.
Annie Slewart, was well done.
Calico Dress Ball.
Messrs. Hill and Howard of the Nev
York Proprietary Club gave an inaugura
tion ca'ico dress ball at'Adelphi' Hall last
Wednesday evening which was largely at
tcmled by. the sporting fraternity. Music
began at 10:30 and at 12 o’clock the whole
concourse of pleasure seekers repaired to
the lower hall where Charlie Davis had pre
pared many nice things. At 5 p. m., “Home
Sweet Home” cleared the ball room of Us
