BROOKLYN GIRLS HAVE A NEW STILE.

CONSCIENCE BOTHERED THE MAYOR.
Inspector Steers Tells Ilovr Ho Wan Onea
Fined Fire Days' Pay.
Inspector Steers tolls, in a very interesting
way, a story of how ho was fined five days'
pay during his captaincy. Inspector Will
iams refers to the eighteon or twenty charges
preferred against him from tlmo to timo as
"honorable mentions." It was Saturday
night and Capt. Steers, as he thon was, after
seeing that all was correct in his precinct, re
tired long after midnight. Sheridan Shook
was in tho theatrical line, and in order that
the public might ho surprised be sent a man
to bill" tho town for a now play called
' Conscience." Guttor snipes wero used
liberally, and when Capt. Steers awoke on
Sunday morning tho gutterways in his pre
cinct wore covorod with black-lottered " Con
Bcienco" on a white sheet of paper.
At 3 a. m., Billy Wickbam, then John
Kelly's Mayor, was driving home in a cab
from the Manhattan Club, and everywhere
ho looked, he was confronted by " Con.
science," staring at him from fences, and
blinking even from tho street gutters. It
worried and then vexed tho Lexington
avenue brown.stono.frqnt Mayor,who, Steors
thinks, felt that the .terrible accusing word
was construed as personal to the Mayor for
doing the club act on Sunday morning.
Wickham complained to Supt. Walling,
charges were preferred against Steers, ana,
notwithstanding the fact that tho samo evil
existod in a number of precincts, Steers alone
was fined five days' pay.
" So much went into the Pension Fund,
whero it would do good," says tho now In
spector 8teers, " but o friend Shook sent
his chock for $175, so I lost nothing, and the
retired policemen were benefited also."
Wickham'B conscience wos eased. Shook
secured a splendid advertisement for his new
play, and altogether everybody was happy
except Steers, whose record was dotted for
something that he could not possibly have
averted had he walked the streets of his pre
cinct all night.

Just as ho had finished speaking the first
bottlo of champagne was opened. The foam
sparkled in tho crystal cups. Tho young
men, wholly intent on enjoyment, scarce
lent an ear to tho expiring din and noiso of
Paris when tho great city is about to sink
into slumber. But just at this moment one
of tho waiters entered and handed Fernand a
dainty little card.
"A visit at this hour, and in a pnbllo cafe","
exclaimed the jolly host, refusing to accept
tho card with an air of lofty disdain. "Tell
the gentleman he may present himself at my
rooms on Louis-le.Grand street to-morrow.
If I be at home I shall be very happy to ro
"But, sir," one of the guests aptly re
marked, "you have not evon taken the
trouble to look at the name of the visitor who
sends in bis card."
"Why, that's so," replied Fernand. ' 'Let
us see who is this fellow who chooses such
queer visiting hours."
Hating pompously adjusted his eyeglass,
ho held up tho card aud tried to docipher the
name. He had to give it up.
" There is some name scrawled on it," ho
roraorked, in a puzzled way, " but for tho
life of me, I can't make it out. Perhaps
some of you may suoceed in deciphering it,"
he continuod, handing it in turn to each of
his friends seated around the table.
The six of them struggled with it in turn
and finally gave it up in despair.
The circumstance alone was enough to
excite the curiosity of a less inquiring mind
than Fernand's. A moment before he was
about to dismiss the stranger unceremoni
ously; now he had the keenest desire to see
" Tell the gentleman to come in," he said,
addressing a waiter.
In a moment the seven gay youths saw ap-

In opera a first night Is different, at least In one
respect. At the theatre there Is a general unnu Im
II y among the men In tbe lobbies. They like tbe
performance or they don't, and all aro agreed.
But at the Metropolitan Opera-Housc the lobbies
are Oiled with excited and often angry dlnpuunla.
The mercurial musician and tho tiogmailn
critics creatures of different schools of musical
composition or cxeontlou fall upon one an
other tooth und nail, flgurativtly speiking,
and make It a point to disagree flatly with ono an
other. Strange, passing stranvo it la. that tho
gentlest themes, music and religion, excite the
quickest and bitterest quarrel. Every Brat night
at tbe opera-house Is a battle ground for tho dev
otees of tho Italian tctiool on one side and the
German on the other, for tho Wagncrltea ot the
old school, for the men who write tno librettos for
this house and the men who do not. Then again
these musical folks hum snatches of wnat
they have heard, give burlesque Imitations
of the manners of the people of tho smite and In
one way or another turn the lobbies into a mild
beer garden. And within the house tho box-hold-era
who pay tt.ouo a year, tn lost of Interest and
outlay of principal, for the privilege ot posing be
fore ono another, and who care lets for lmislo than
a cat does about religion, are flitting about tho
upper halls In rich opera cloaks or bare necks, and
dangling here and there at the box doors In claw
hammer coata, exchanging vlslla, boubons and

A New York Nnrse In (loraeous Attire.
yVoin a At0 York rfr.)
A frequent sight In our streets is that of some
woman, herself modestly attired, attracting atten
tion by means of an attendant. Yesterday I saw.
In Fifth avenue, a uuracmald doing this duty. Sho
was rolling the conventional baby-carriage along,
as she talk, d with a plsln'y dressed mother, who
walked at her side. The servant's dress was a
wonder, but hardly a thin i of beauty. It was all
of flaming red. Not on'y tne underdress and
sacquoweie of thla color, but the hat an i cloak
al.o. The cloak was a peculiar one in style. It
was long enough to reacn about to tne knees lit
front; thence It was cut away In a grauual
curve until It touched the ground benlnd.
It was made of a rich matoilal, tint en
tirely devoid of trimming or embclll-hinent of
any km i. At a Utile disuuco It appeared like a
reproduction of tho looio cloak which Mcpilsto
phcles wears wnen he a pears on the stuie in
grand opera. This effect wai heightened by war
ing the strange garment halt opened to tho breeze
so lhat It swung about and flapped suggest I tely.
Hut tho cloak was not tbe climax of tin- coilume.
lhat was nut reached until the hat had been put
on. It was, as I said, of the shadn ot flaming red
that made up the rest of the dress, and had at
tached to It an Immense ribbon, at least ten inches
wide, and double. It wai plu tod into a ruche

Baden-Baden, you risked the entire sum

you then engagod in railroad speculation.

fall off free beh nd. They were to long that ther

About 9 o'elook in tho eveninc ho entered, V$taKawafl
the theatre, and, come what might, walked ''HflgB
straicht for tho third box, as directed. To , ttHH
his unspeakablo amazement, he found him- ' HH
self in the presenco of a lovely young cirl. IHagl
Seated in front of the box, she was dressed ' '!$KLwH
with the most oxquisite good taste, and vlflpnlaB
gracefully toyed with a fan in her hand. ;vHH
Btrangest of all, tho face was the same as that flKalB
of the Devil, who appearod to the six young WHLU
men in tho cafo on tbe boulovnrd the even- $MLW

himself this time under the semblance of a 'rRgawal
daughter of Eve ? Thero was somo new mys- 'iflH
