It is to bo hoped that care will RS?'1 bo takon to male them popular, by the selec- Hjrt&.' tios of subjocts in which the people at larco W- can take an interest. Tho suocess of tho HrT undertaking will depend greatly on the good BraV- sense exercised in this direction. Tnx Evxit- Bjlf! ixo) Would originated the idea of these Free BJM-.

HMfci Yesterday tho trotting horses owned by Bilk Mayor-elect Gbaxt were sold at auction at B3lP- Breat horse mart of Van TissxxL & BJh Keamtbt. Tho amount realized by the sale K&f was nearly $7, 000 ; yet tho prices wore not up BMi. luo merits of the animals. They are all H$ , ve Itnown on the road, and some of them BJJS3?? bear exoellent rcoords. Kenilworth, the jf', . prince of the stable, with a record of 2. lB, BJ& , "was purchased by John Boannell for CS.OOO. WjM'-' The Mayor-elect need not bo condoled Wmt viUl on nockinz down (to the highest BfflK"' bidder) of his idols. They were sold not be. HXkV causa of any pecuniary embarrassments. mm- Their late owner might buy up any stable in K the city if he felt so disposed. They were BiT- pocriflced to duty, Mjj. Tho fact is that the Mayor.eloct loves a m" horse. His greatest delight has been to fly JgS, along the road behind Borne of his late beau- Bis tie. As Mayor of the .city he knows that his B publio duties will keep him constantly at Bj 'work, and he intends to devote his time to the Hug.. .reformation of the abuses which have crept BJp, io tho publio departments and to Jp" isWiog Kow York the best government Biff i6 city has over had. Bis horses have been JP ! ' 'Bold in order to deliver him from temptation.

Bjf,. t THB 00BHELL CASE. HP? '- The deolsion of the Court of Appeals in Hb, the welLkuown Cornell University case H .declares that the bequest of tl,GOO,000 mode Bur jBnder Mrs. MoG&iw-Fiskb's will in 1881 is BJu jvoU. Tho main point on which the B$f ' 'Judgment of the Appellate Court is based B ! simple enough. Under its charter JB v ( Unirersity was limited In its right to Jp old property to 3,000,000. It did not hold BIl more than this amount when the bequest was Bft. siade, and the Trustees neglected until too BJ& 3ta to get such an amendment to the charter B, 'a would have removed the disability to take Bf&r more property. BJ, The University will not be seriously in. BfP 'ivied by this decudoh, although it creates an Bl' (tmmenso exciUment in Ithaca and very BR, sevoro things are said about Prof. Fisxx. the Ero weeessful plaintiff. Yet Mr. Fisxn has jEr' - Already made a will, bequeathing the amount K recovered by him through this decision and BMi Jom property to trustees for tho benefit of L" ,tbe University aftj his death. BK. Tho whole dimoulty seems to have arisen BjL'. , jthrough jealousies among tho Trustees, and BIj ttle wisest course seems to be to harmonize BBL DMtters rather than to carry tho case to tho k United States Court, as is contemplated.

Fart of It Came True, nnd the Itcmnlnder Is Awaited with Interest. rrrfr.K (Ala.) DllpmltX ( CMtapt alt, A bold robbery and a remarkable case of premonition connected therewith occurred yesterday. Joseph N. Mahono, a travelling man, representing one of tho largest whole, sale grocery houses of Now Orleans, was the victim, being robbed of a fine gold watch and chain, 9780 in casli, throe checks aggregating a considerable sum and valuable pnpors. Ma hone was overtaken when within three miles of Evergreen late yesterday evening by n dark-skinned man with a small grip in his hand, who claimed to bo roturniug from Andalusia, and said he had to walk back t o Evergreen to tako the? cars homo to Mobile, as his horse was taken siok and died at Gant's Mill on tho route. Mahono let him rido into town, and they put up at tho same hotel, tho stranger registering as James Poinercy. Mobile. Upon retiring tho stranger called for an adjoining room When Mahono awoke lu tbe morning lie found an empty bottle labelled chloroform by liis pillow. Mahono relates tho following story con nccted with the robbory : Ho cays he is n man of high nervous temperament, and from childhood ban been affected at intervals by a strange, semi-conscious, tronce.like affec tion, during which he has visions of different occurrences, which in thoir vivid nnd realis tio appearances almost iiersuado him of tho truth of the scenes, lie was so affected on Wednesday. While in a trance he saw plainly outlined before him a room with n man lying upon the bod, whom ho lecognlzedas himself. It was n darkened room, nnd it appeared to be night, lly the faint glimmer of light through tho window he saw a muffled figure stealthily outer his room and abstract a watch, money and other valuables from tho clothes hanging on a chair. The thief left the room, lie saw him go off, seemingly, down a railroad. Then it seemed as though a cloud passed over tho scene for n moment, and in rapid panoramic Buicession he sow the party arrested. stab the officer, ovorcome by superior numbers, confined in prison, tried for murder, con. vlctcd, sentenced to death, and hung. This dream or vision made no particular im. Sressiou at the time upon the mind of Mr. labone, but was deemed merely a vagary of the brain; but since the robbery he recalls the faot that the man who robbed him corre. sponds exactly with the one he saw in the dream. The room in the hotel and tho other foots are exactly as tney appeared. A part of tbe vision has come true, and it remains a matter of profound psychological Interest to see if the remainder comes to pass. No One Naed I'ear a l!ouli If tbtr can r.t ttiaza'a KxriOTortAMT.

Thins That Make Illm Hustle for a Llvlng on the Earth. " I tell you, Colonel, times ain't as good as they UBed to be," said a cabman ono recen evening. ' ' A man UBed to be able to go out in the daytimo and make his living like awhlto man; but sinco thoy got those olectrio bells that connect with Eo.callod private stables our business has gono to smash. " The ouly way that we can make a living Is to go out at night and beootno what peoplo call night-hawks. And even at night we havo a pretty hard time of it getting along. ' ' Tho prlvato stables put ono ot their cabs out on the good oorners and when a ' faro ' comes along and makes a bargain tho driver waits a few minutes until another rig is roadv to drive in his placo. In this way we aro kept out of a great deal of business, " Then, another thing. We havo to dis play our numbers ou our lamps and keep the ligbts burning. A great number of people object to going home in a publio cab, as they are ashamed to let their friends see them lu such a vehicle, so thoy go to tbe livery-stable keeper and hiro ono of hU 'busses.

'Weather docs not discourage tho ener getic little cookB and housewives of the Vandewater Btreet School. It was a terribly rainy day when The Eveninq AVorld young man walked into tho culinary cabinet to see what new diet the children wore disporting themselves on. It wasn't a new brand, but a very useful old one. It was a repitition lesson in tea biscuit. Nellie Feiss and Mario Hart main wero tho tea-biscuiters, and thoy turned out a lolly crop of round, light, sweet biscuit. When tho fiaky top was broken off and n dab of butter put on tho smoking fuce of tho dougb sphere, it was delicious. The kind preceptress considerately gave the reporter a cup ot Oolong tea, which hor own deft hands had browed" to wash down the biscuit. They were so nice and he was so hungry that he had n " high tea " all by himself in the Cooking School after the merry little cooks had gono and the neat housekeepers for the day. Demoiselles Julia Flynn and Mollio Lahey, had tidied every thing up and put it to rightB. Carrie Kinsolla was writing something connected with the HCientiuo side of tea-bis-ouit on the blackboard in such n beautifully logiblo bond that it was a treat just to read it. It began: "If we put baking powder into flour and mix thoroughly, so that every por tion will have its share, when tho flour is wet and made into dough enrbonio acid will bo set free and try to cscauc." It is this wild attempt of the enrbonio acid to escape and get out into a cold and cruel world that is just the making of the tea-biscuit. The gluten catches the carbonic acid and it can't get away, but it drags the dough all around and if the dough is baked quickly the bread is light. Tbie is the real true inwardness of tho tea biscuit. It Is scene of n duel between tho carbonlo acid and the gluten, which results in tho smallest amount of flour occupying the largest amount of space. This is tho same thing as saying that tuo bread is light. An afternoon session was given to corn, starch pudding. This 1h a simple, palatable, iiutritiouB dish, easily made, and economi cal ; so it is just the thing to teach the chil. dren. They do not vtaste their time over Charlotte Itusse, angel cako, Ncssolrodo pudding, or anyof those expensivo delicacies. 'Ihe instruction is all practical and makes good home cooks of tho little girls. Thoy can make nice dishos for the family without bankrupting the head of tho house.

EYERI-DAT HAPPENINGS IN BI-WAYS OF THE METROPOLIS. The Bad Blorr of a flllld but Ambitions .lllnatrel. A day or two ago Lew Dookstadtr was sit ting in his ofllce thinking up somethlug new, n lieu a small, round-faced man entered and inquired for " Mr.Dockstader," ulth tho "a " pronounced long. " I'm Dockstador," said Low. " What can I do for you .'" " I come lrom New Hampshire," ex plained tho isitor, " and I was leading in the papers about you clearing ! 14,000 last vtcck in Boston. Now I haven't got money, but I've got a voice, and I think that you ought to share part of that fourteen thou with mo. I've been lookin to got a chauco on the stage, and I thought I'd givo you tho hrst opportunity to secure mo." 'Ihoorcliehtrn nas .roheatsiug nt that mo ment, and Dockstador, hceiug n chauco for fun, asked tho New Hampshire profo-tsor If ho would iniiid letting liim seo what he could do. "Not in tho least," said the man. "If you have an orchestra hero I will accommo date jou." JJoctatader lod the wav downstairs and around to tho stage, nnd ordered Lcudur Mul Inly to " do as tho gontlemau bids you, " and then ho started off to call tho bovs. In tho muim time tho aspirant for minstrel fatno had started to sing an aria from a heavy opera. He had u cracked voico that fairly rattlod as tho dismal sounds oscapod from his throat. l'rctty soon tho crowd behind tho scenes began to shoot oil a miniature cannon and pouud on the floor, interrupting the singer and causing him to turn red in the faco. Dockstador, who stood on tho stage, would walk over to the wings aud in a loud voico would say: " Why don't you kceu quiet and allow tho qontleman to sing? He's got a beautiful voico. You ain't jealous of him, nro you?" Tho singer looked at Dockstador in a grate ful way and went on. He had nearly finished his song, when ono of tho madrigalB sitting in tho orchestra, shoutod, " Will you novor tako a drop?" This as a signal, and as it was given tho youug man shot down through the Btago out of sight. Ho had beon standing on a trap and it had been sprung. His cries tero loud and terrifying, and as ho sank into the infornnl regions be uttered maledictions upon tho heads of everybody. Fit e minutes later tho would-be minstrel left the theatre on the strict quiet by tho Twonty-ninth streot door. Nate and Sight From n Hlxth Avenue "I," Train.

SLACK BEDSPREADS. Something- About the Lattat Whim of tba Fashionable World. rron tkt rStUdttpMa Jteeorrf.l The world of fashion and society has be come so singular in tho choice of its whims, and has carried them to suoh extromes, that it is really refreshing to see tome new fad that has as an excuse for its conception tho furthoranco of some not over-extravagant Idea in household decoration, and msthotio effect. Such a fud Is tho latost ono that has found Its way across tho Atlantic from Spain's black, eyed daughter's of royal birth, and it is now being taken up by American ladles with a vim and dash that illustrnios how quick they are to recognise a good thing when thoy seo it. Black silk bed dressing is tho fad that is now tickling tbe iiltra.fnhiouable women and drawing heavily on tho resource of their purses. As yet it is tho exclusive proporty ot it scloct fow, who nro trying to guard it very zealously, but everybody knows what adepts women nro nt keeping sjcrcts, and if thu fashion is not adopted in every homo that can afford it boforo tho Winter is over it will bo struuge. Not many moons ago, so the story is told, n pretty bJack-cyed maidon, who was the gen eral mauager of u blooming iufauta iu the laud of faudangoB, conceived tho idea of drossing up the infanta's little couch in black silk and Inco, for which the youngster possessed a native fondness. Tho youug in fanta, in tho oxuboranco of her spirits, told some of tho othor toddlers that lived in tbo same election district near Madrid, aud so tho news and tho fashion unread arouud. Mrs. Frank Leslie, of Now Voik City, an enthusiastic dovotco of all that is rich aud beautiful in tliia world's goods, is said to havo introduced tho idea in this country, and many of tho fashionable people followed suit. It has now reached this city, and, while tho fact is not commonly known, it has boon introduced into some of tho finest houses. All tho material on the bed, or nearly all, is of black. It may bo of silk, satin, linen, or muslin, according to tho length of a person's purse. Of course, tho mattress, which is al ways invisible to the visitor, will not suffer any change. The sheets in a recent outfit that was made at a leading dry-goods houso wero of black silk and ns soft as a Summer zephyr, Tho edges were hommod with a half-inch border of black satin. A comforter was mado of black silk, very prettily quilted and orna mented with a beautiful design in the centre-, hand-embroidered in carmine silk. Tho spread was made ot black silk of tho finest possible texture and trimmed on tho outer edges with n decorous profusion of black satiu bows and films of black Spanish loco, with hero and there a tiny bow of saffron-yellow satin ribbon. Instead of two pillows there was one huge bolster that did not reach upns high as the pillow ordinarily does, possibly for tho reason that it might havo hidden tbe handsome carvine on the head of tho obon izod bedstead on whioh tho whole was ar ranged Tho bolster was a dream of delight in delicato embroidery in blaok silk -a largo floral design ornamented tho centre, from which there strayed away towards either sido delicate ttaclngs of vinos and flowers. In the midst of all this naked little Cupids, em broidered, disported themselves aincng tho vines with arrows at rest. The contre piece on tho bedstead was a Cupid with his arrow and bow lying by his sido and a smile of victory on his face. The head camo out in high relief from tho back ground, and around it a scoro of tiny cherubs fluttered. Over all this hung a canopy of black silk covered with real Spanish lace, aud black satin and orange bows were tastefully ar tanged around the corners and draperies. This thing of beauty was made for n young couple now out of the city on thoir bridal tour, and awaits their coming in a handsomo uptown residence. It cost vory nearly $2,000, and it took two months to make it. " Of course, theso aro very raro orders," said the merchant, aftor explaining the ar tiolo as described. " We do not oxpootto get another one like it, although we may. The some thing may bo mado up in linou, or even muslin, but, of course, it would not pay to put oil that fine embroidery on them."
