Shortly after ho donned tho uni form, he entered the fctatlon-houso to report for duty, when he saw a man named Lamb sitting on a clmlr suffering from a knife thrttfct in tho nbdomen. The wound was very Bcrious, and tltatb wan Imminent. ratrolmnn Steers took in the gravity of tho situation at a glancit. and throwing off hlH coat, laid Lamb by tho stove, stripped him, called for hot natcr nuil a spongo and bathed tho wound until it olosod, and then bandaged it.

Tho fashion in visiting cards for gcntle mon this season demanda a very small card, and that tho prefix " Mr," should invariably bo used, oxcopt In tho enso of young mon nndor twenty, and of elderly men, who do not gonorally regard it as appropriate, hav ing too much tho air of a dashing society bwcII. Such cards as those., however, are usod exclusively for visiting, for where it is dobirod to send a card by mall tho " Mr." is not used. For ladies' enrds an averago size, oblong card has been tho fashiou, but this winter it will bo the rulo to ubo nearly squaro ones. This is dono only for the Bake of a ohauge, for the larger sizo is not only loss con venient to carry and handle, but it is positively ugly. It 1h tho rulo to have the address placed In tho loft band lower corner and the roceptlon day at the lower right-hand corner. It U considered good tasto, however, for a young lady to leave the eugravod address off her card, if she has occasion to gio bar address to a friend sbo cun writo it on tho card with a pencil, and this will be regarded as a speolal favor. For the lettering of visiting cords plain F.ngliBn script, which must bo cut very fine and smooth, is tho ruling style. But it is by no means cav to find ongravcrB who can I como up to all the requirements, for tho very simplicity und plainncssof tho stylo demands tho most careful and elegant workmanship to render it uttruutivo. - THE PUOrER THING FOB WEDDINGS. Unalluli .Script or Annular Letter the Stylo In IStntlonerr. " Tho only change in wedding invitations this year," said a Fulton street engraver to a roporter of 'Inn Evening Wonu), ' is that thoro will be no attompt at display in the get-up. The styles of lettering will be either English script or tho angular letter, which isxomething comparatively now, and has a very light, delicnto line. The object is, of courso, to secure plainness, neatness and oh ganco in appearance. " A few years no it was customary to use old 1'nglish lettering and floworcd letters in wedding Invitations, but that has all been dono nwrtv with. Although this fancy letter, iug is difncult to exeoute, however, it Is rather a remarkable fact that good engravers demand more now for engraving plain bcript than they did soino years ago, wheuthey were expected to do all sorts of elaborate work. No chance has been made this season in the form of the invitation. When tho wed ding is to be performed at the house it Is cus tomary to use the expression, ' request the pleasure of your company,' and if it is at a uhtiich the form ' request your prcsenco ' is preferable. In extreme coses of formality it it; sometimes v orded, ' wo deBire tho honor of j our presence.'

"What?" " Ten. Perhaps, however, you would liko to vote more than onco, and "horo the dimple sank in and tho nut-brown eyes drooped " of courso I want to help along the eloctlon." "Certainly, certainly. Your candidate shall bo elocted if it costs no matter what it costs j here are 30 cents and" " And please, sir, may I have a vote, too?"

Another vision flontod my way and conferred upon mo a chance In a wedding cake for tho low price of 26 oents; another com pelled me by force of her loveliness to try my luck pinning a tall on a paper jack ass, and It cost me a $1.60 to ascertain that two jaokasscs were contributing to the even inn's fun. and a third betralled me into risk. ing $2 more in tho hopes of naming the most unpopular man in Now York. By this time I was reckless. I took chanoes in everything and anything. If my numbers are luoky I stand to win a christen ing robo, a squirt, a coral teothing ring, a pair of yellow Bllppers with green dogs worked into them, a family Bible, and a cot ton umbrella all handy to have in tho honso. I likewise went into the art gallery and saw more roal art in nvo minutes than any gallery in tho city could show in a year. Ono sketch " Fishes, Done in Oil "was so nearly like a box of sardines that the eye could not de tect the difference. Emerging from the art gallery I cast a fow more votes, purchased n rosebud for half n dollar, paid 23 cents for a pin and 25 more for tho work of rosy fingers at my lapel. Then I got still nioro reckless and would have purchased all tho chdnces in all tho raffles', engaged the engaged tho entiro fair and mortgaged myself to pay for votes, if a man who had known me in better days had not seen my mental condition and drawn me gently outside, where I could cool off and reflect. The Anti-Poverty Fair is a groat success, if it intends making paupers. Given a man with anything liko a heart, and given one hundred as pretty girls as thoso who be Bieged mo last night, and if that combination does not make a bankrupt in thirty minutes, thero is somothing wrong.

A Slender Yonntr Man's Moraine" Chase After Mr. Agnes Dootb. A slender youth, wearing a 1'Bht autumn overcoat, brick red gloves' and tho latest doer-stalker hat, stood at the door of tho Fifth Avenuo Hotel yesterday, and gazed critically at the ladies fortunate enough to pass him. Ab he looked a dainty little woman came tripping along, her eyes rlvetted to the ground, hor gait hurried, and a plump little arm swayed to and fro by the speod of her walk. Kho was clad in black silk, sttrmountod by a tightly fitting black cloth jacket. On hor golden head was a diminutive heliotropo bonnet. Tho slendor youth recognized the lady at onco as Mrs. Agnes Booth, of the Madison Squaro Theatre, tho delightful Mrs. Balston, of " Jim the Penman.' It was 11 o'clock, and the fact is wnll known that scores of theatrically . crazed adolescents frequont Broadway at that hour to watoh well-known actresses take tholr airing, and to favor them by a sweet smile or two. Mrs. Booth was walking so fast and her mannor was so mysterious that the slender youth dotormined to follow her. He plunged Into tho crowd and saw her pass the Hoffman House. On she went, still with downcast oyes ond hurried stops. Tho slender youth was filled with curiosity. It bubblod up. it overflowed, and it com pletely immersed his good judgmont, of which, however, he oould never have bos sessed a largo store. Ho felt convinced from the aspect of things that Mrs. Booth was bound on some interesting errand, and he was dotermlned to find out what It was. By this time she bad passed the St. James Hotel, orossed the street, gazed into a store window for a moment, and continued her course. At the Fifth Avenue Theatre she bowed slightly to Mr. Bhroedor, and then wont on again. At Thirteenth street she stopped, and the slender youth's heart beat a little faster. For a moment she looked irre solute, a spasm of thought (if thought over comes in spasms) flashed across her face, she locked ber little gloved hands together, and thoy seemed to come to a deter mination. Walking quickly np to the large fruit and grocery store on the corner, she beckoned to tho man inside. Ho came out to moot her. She fimlled sweetly. "I was thinking," she said In her clearest tones, " that perhaps you had better send mo four, teen pounds of cut sugar, and don't forget tho mixod Mocha and Jata." Then sho tripped sway daintily, brushed past tho crest-fallen youth, hailod a Brood way car and went home. STAIN AND THE BARRON MURDER. A Maine Ppper Asaerts that Young Stain was lu Jail when ibe Crime Took Place. tPXCIlI, TO THE EVZKIKO WORLD Lewiston, Me., Oct. tC Nearly all the Maine newspapers are working industriously to discredit the story told by young Stain ro. garding tho murder of Cashier Barron. One paper asserts this morning that it finds by the record of Androscogin County jail that Charles F. Stain was committed to jail Feb. 4. 1878. for horso stealing. Not being able to find ball be was indicted at the April term. He pleaded guilty and, was sentenced to three years In tho State prison, Ho was discharged from jail May 4 and taken to Stato prison. This record covers the time he alleges he was assisting in the Dexter bonk robbery in a wagon the 22d of February. While it is possible that young Stain's story of his own connection with the murder taay 1)0 untrue, it is more than probable that he is correct in his statements regarding his father's complicity in the terrible crime. NOTES FOR GENTLEMEN ONLY. Lining for Chesterfield ovorcoats should bo of Scotch checks. A cane with a wbito bnckhorn handle in stead of the natural colored one is correot. It is always tho stout, eldorly evergreen who wears his Norfolk blouse both in and out of season. Scotch plaid suspenders may have some thing to do with the Thistle, as they have just been put on tho market. If a man wants to bo fresh in his Ideas he turns the points of his linen collar back just about three-eighths of an inch. Men are supposed now to have a favorite flower and wear it naturally, ond in pin ond studs on every possiblo oocasion. The pique shirts with colored stripes printed across tho cord are cheaper than they were in tho spring and consequently more " popular." New heavy umbrellas have Jnpauesebronzo handles in buttons, rings, cops, crooks and balls, mounted on snake-wood, violet, ebony and rosewood. A men's furnishing goods dealer has wearied at last of tho stereotypod "one price only." In his window is an artistically designed card " We never monkey." Japanefo silk handkerchiefs, some of them with really carefully embroidered figures in tho corner, are being lavishly bought by men who liko that sort of thing. An umbrella handle, which is neither land nor common, btands in the middle distance made in bamboo, stained, black or in natural color, with gold or silver nail hhad. The poor young man is getting the attention ho deserves. Not only are the clovorost kind of imitation gold Bleavebuttons on the market, but those with imitations of precious stones in thorn that would deceive tho million. A writer on men's wear lamented loudly that tho Princo of Wales was " at it again " when he went about in a snuff-colored blanket delicately set off by o red silk hand kercjiief on his neck, a great Tyrolean hat on his hend and tan-colored shoos on his feet, but deems even this "poetical" to the blanket with a hole in the centre, through which the author, Stevenson, stuck his head each day on his passage from England.

It came about in this way. Nearly a week ago big JohnLAflin.the athlete was standing In front of Hughy Waldron's eigar-stondln the Astor House. Mr. Waldron looked closely at a splendid horseshoe pin tho man of musola I wears, but didn't say what it was that inter. I ested him. A night or two later he op- ft proaehod Laflin in tho Morton Honso bar 11 and told him that ho hod his pin; he wag sure of it, but ho would give $20 for it, as ho supposed Laflbs had I given at least that amount for it to some crook. Laflin was dumfounded for e I moment, but then said ho had bought I the jewelry from Mr. Bang, who got it from H Charlie Hess and paid moro than that for it. Jl "Oh, no, you didn't," sold Waldron j "I only gave $39 whon it was new. Come, give I me, or I'll get is off yon for nothin'. I know my own property. There's only two like , I that in tho United States and I could 1 tako my dying oath of it." Thero 1 was another argument and Detective 1 Tom Hickey was pnt on the case. A friend I of Laflin's took a "ringer" to tho cigar I dealer and told him John had concluded ha must be mistaken. Waldron paid the $30 I and was invited to get away with some of , tho I wine it was spent for. He has been joked so about it that it's gottingdongorous now to ask bis opinion on the relative value of artioles of bijouterie. When a prominent member of the ManhaU tan Athletlo Club games gave a $300 silk ban. ner at the Myers testimonial games, given when Myers turned professional two years ago he never dreamed of any olub but tho Manhattans, New Yorks, Olympics or Staten Islands winning it, and only the emblems of these associations were sewed into it. To the surprise of everybody, tho Pastime Athletlo Olub won the trophy, and yearly now it holds a memorial celebration. Next Monday even, ing will be the second one of them ond a big time is expected. The seventh balf-mlle run for the Sullivan medal will take place on the track by electrio light, and there will be a cross-country run over a course staked out by means of fanoy-colored Chinese lan terns. Boxing and a supper will wind up the entertainment. Billy Robertson, who was elected treasurer last night, says the club has done well this summer with her well-known representatives, best known among whom are Burckhardt, the walker, M. O'SuUivnn, tho weight putter, pole vaulter and jumpor, and Collett Byrnes and other runners. This clnb will give a boxing com. petition in Forepa Hall in Deoembor. Sparring in Boston resembles the training young Englishmen, who long for flstio fame, get in " Brummagem " and around Shore dltoh, London, drums, than even the once well-known Philadelphia practices. Tho Boston boys can't have publlo exhibitions openly, that is, run as sparring ben eflts, but they con havo them as ath letic exhibitions, and any sort of a room largo enough for n fifteen-foot square space in the centre is quickly dubbed a gym nasium, A charitable entertainment is got ten up, ond tickets at fifty cents apiece sell like hot cakes. One can see more downright slugging for little money in the " Hub " than in any othor city in America at present. ' Nobby Clark, who has been on here with " Jem Carney, says Greenfield was In a ' very poor condition -when he fought Smith, but that the present champion while doing plenty of landing didn't seem to be nurting Alf much. Tho rest of Clark's story is the shortest possible way of ex plaining how some ring fights are con ducted across the water. 'It ad been gettin' a bit worse for us, so I cried out, '.'E's gettin' bit.' No one seemed to mind it all, so I took a chew out of Alf's shoulder. Then I called over to the referoe, Jem Maoe, ' 'E's bit. Look at'lm.' 'That's all right; go ahead,' says Mace. ' Bnt the sod is a-bltin' of 'im,' I says. 'Never mind t go on hand fight,' says Mace. ' But I bit 'im myself,' " says I. 'Oh,' soys Mace." Tommy Warren and Geo.
