This morning in the Police Court William B.
Hall, a painter from Richmond, Va.. was ar
raigned on a charge of assaulting bis wife,
Leonora HalL "I plead not guilty," be an
swered in a loud tone. Mrs. Hall tben came
in court, leaning on the arm of her father, Ja
cob H. Frank.
Mrs. Frank testified that Saturday evening,
about 8 JO o'clock, she was in her room at No.
915 6th street northwest, when her husband
came home intoxicated. She said that he beat
her unmercifully with his fist, and then took
her to her room, where he gave here a severe
beating with an inch board. She said that her
back and limbs were black nnd blue from the
effects of the beating; that he knocked her
down and kicked her in the stomach and back
of the neck. The assault, she said, was wit
nessed by other*. She said she had
Dr. Henderson Suter gave testimony con
cerning the bruised condition of Mrs. HalL
Her limbs and back, he said, looked as though
?he had received a terrible pounding by some
one with a hard instrument, probably a board,
as she described.
Mr. Frank, defendant's father-in-law, testi
fied that he went to see his daughter Sunday
night, and found her in bed. Sne was unable
to move. Her face was badly scarred and
bruised. She has now returned to her home.
Mr. J. M. \V. Burns testified that he heard
an unusual noise in defendant's room Saturday
night, and when he went to ascertain the
cause of the trouble he saw the defendant,
who had fallen on the steps. Mrs. Hall, he
?aid. was in his dining-room, and the door was
locked. When the door was opened the de
fendant rushed in and assaulted his wife again.
Witness went after a policeman, Mid Hall
threatened him.
The defendant testified that the assault had
been compromised by his father-in-law.
"In what manner?" asked the court
?I promised never to touch her again," he
answered, "and he promised not to nave me
troubled. I am sorry for what I have done,"
he added. "I was not responsible for what I
"Were you crazy?" asked the court
"I don't know," he answered.
"What is the cause of the trouble between
you?" asked the court
"That nto there," he answered, pointing to
his father-in-law. Speaking of his vife's con
dition. Hall said:
?He (the father-ia-law) is the father of that
"You're a liar," interrupted Mr. Frank.
"Come to order." said the fudge, and Mr.
Frank was given a seat outside the rail
Defendant continuing, said that his father
in-law was responsible for all their trouble,
and through him his wife had deceived him
(defendant) It was dona, he said, to oover np
hie father-in-law's infamy.
When examined by the oourt he remembered
and admitted the assault He said that when
the matter was discussed hie father-in-law used
threatening language toemd him, and his
brother-Maw had a pistoL

A Drue tlint It to Claimed Prodi
Tendency to Crime.
In the Criminal Court, verterdav. the cue of
Franklin Cook, alias Otis F. Hamm. charged
with having. while an employe of the poetal
service, feloniously taken from the mail, Oc
tober 6, 1886, a letter, ?u continued after The
8tae's report closed.
Dr. Alex. McWilliams, physician to the Jail,
testified that he learned that Cook waa addicted
te the opium habit, which, with some person*,
developed a tendency to steal.
Mr. Evans, a druggist, testified to selling Cook
A number of depositions of persons in and
around Boston were read showing that Cook
had been a man of high character; that he was
well educated, a graduate of the medieal school
of Harvard; that he had served in the army as
Franklin Cook; that his proper name was Otis
F. Hamm. and that he was addicted to the
opium habit
This morning Judge Montgomery said that
on the point raised by Mr. Cook that in an
indictment charging the embezzlement of a
letter and larceny of money it was necessary to
set out the ownership of the thing stolen. He
had examined the Authorities cited. Much to
his surprise he had found that none of thein
decided the question. He preferred a full dis
cussion of the subject before deciding so im
portant a point. The common law rule required
an allegation of ownership, but it was contend'
ed that this case and question was outside of
the common law.
Mr. Cook read a number of authorities.
Mr. Lipscomb said that the indictopent was
not under the common law, butunderastatate;
that the strict technicalities of common law
were not required. He claimed that the own
ership was avered in the statement that the
letter was addressed to M. A. Dauphin.
The court said that he was inclined to hold
that that was so if it had been averred alsft
that the letter had been deposited in the
The court after reviewing the points made
and noting what averments the indictments
should have contained, said it attempts to
charge the defendant with the larceny of a
dollar bill out of a letter addressed to M. A.
Dauphin. There was no allegation of the
ownership of the money and no averment as to
who wrote the letter, when or where it was
written, or that it was deposited in any post
office or was intended for transmission through
the mails. He held that the indictment was
fatally bad.
The jury returned a verdict of not guilty.
Mr. Lipscomb said he would take steps to se
cure a new indictment, but would not ask the
detention of the defendant, who said that he
would be prepared to give bail when the charge
was made.

Mabket Improvement.?A strong effort will
be in.ide next vear to secure the erection of
han<L>cnse iron sheds in place of the unsightly
and inconvenient wooden booths that now fill
the interior of the market square. All the
revenue arising from the market is paid into
the sinking fund and the repairs and changes
are paid for out of the current taxes, and tliis
has heretofore been an obstacle to the expendi
ture of any considerable sum of money upon
the market, but it is thought that if it conla be
shown that a greater revenue could be gotten
for the sinking fund by a market improvement
the commissioners of that fund would agree to
expend a portion of the revenues of the market
upon its renovation.
Improved I to ads.?The county board of Alex
andria and the road overseers have entered
upon a system of road improvement in that
county. A road machine was purchased some
time ago, and the board will this week lay in a
supply of great hammers for breaking stone to
be used in making macadamized road-beds
where practicable. The road leading to Roslvn
and the free bridge will be constructed at the
joint cost of two proprietors of Koslyn and
the county treasury, and work of repair will
be prompt at the worst places of the lesser
roads, so as to render travel possible in thawing
times. The crossing of the Columbia road at
its junction with the Loudoun railroad will be
put in good order before the next quarterly
term of the county court or the grand jury will
make a presentment on the subject. An im
provement of the Washington and Alexandria
turnpike will be vigorously pressed.
Sent to Jail.?Ine mayor to-day sent on to
the grand jury the cases of Boston and Black
bum. colored men. charged with the robberies
of Mr. Downey's store in the ? village." in the
southwest of the city. They were committed
to jail.

widow of Mr. C. H. House, run over and killed

Mr. and Mrs. McSwat Swear Off.
From the Chicago Tribune.
"Lobelia, my love, another long and delight
ful evening is before us."
The young husband was arrayed in a dress
ing gown of gorgeous, variegated and dazzling
complexion. 0 He sat in a luxurious arm-chair
and rested his tired feet on the aoft plush
cushions of two other chairs. In his hand he
held a magazine of large print, which he was
trying laboriously to read, with the aid of an
eyeglass he had purchased under the deep and
solemn conviction that his position in society
required him to use something of the kind.
'?Is there anything else I can do for your
comfort, Billiger ?" tenderly inquired the young
"I think not, Lobelia," he replied, after con
sidering a few moments; "though, if you will
kindly open thai package of 'Lone Jack.' and
put the smoking set within reach, I shall be
Mrs. McSwat did ao. and with her own fair
bauds she filled his new meerschaum, whose
bowl was already taking on a brownish tinge
that gave promise of richer and grander m
sults in the happy future.
"You don't know. Lobelia (puff), how grate
fully I (puff) appreciate tout (puff) kindness
in interposing no objection to my indulgence
in (puff, puff ) this habit. Hard as would have
been the sacrifice, Lobelia. I (puff) would hare
quit it cheerfully?that it to my (puff), with
comparative cheerfulness, if yon had ex
acted it."
'?How could I have asked you to quit smok
ing. Billiger," replied the young wife, "when
you have never made the least objection to my
chewing gum?"
Mr. McSwat laid tta pipe down and looked
at her in astonishment.
"Do you chew gum, Lobelia?" he said. "I
never suspected it"'
"I?I confeas I do, sometimes, Billiger."
. "Mrs. McSwat" "aid he, severely, "tiave you
any idea of the conseauenoes of inveterate
gum-chewing? Do yon know anything of the
Inconceivably vile material* of which the stuff
is made?"
"It can't be any worse, Mr. McSwat than the
poisonous, filthy, reeking fumes of that dirty
old pine you are "
"Lobelia McSwat ? care! Don't pro

"Billiger Mc8wat do you dare to threaten
me? Don't glare and squint at me through
that eye-glass till you have learned how to use
it, sir. You are "
"Lobelia!" exclaimed the young husband,
pale with conflicting emotions, "you have
spoken sneeringly of this meerschaum. It cost
?83. But let that pass. I can bear it To
think, though, that the woman I have vowed to
love and cherish"?and his voice faltered?
"upon whom I have poured out the treasure of
a heart's richest affection, is a K-ran-chew
chewer! O! O! Lo-be-belia!"
"B-Billiger!" sobbed Lobelia, 'Til qu-quit

?Til do ft, my lover' he etclaimed.
His brow aflame with a lofty and w>bl+ re
solve Billiger wrapped his smoking set with
pipe, tobacco and aQ, in a paper, and threw
the package to the remotest depths of a dark
and gloemy attic on the topmost floor, while
Lobelia gathered up all her wads of gum from
their various hiding places, rolled them into a
compact bundle, ana threw them into the attic
"With theee slight sacrifices, Lobelia," mid
Billiger, tenderly, "we propitiate toe good an

demon of discord from our hearthstone)"

i A Lcmob of Court ray Never to be For
From Once i Week.
A woman'* role is to seem utterly oblivion*
of her bonnet after the purting look into the
mirror establishes the pleaaing troth that it
is settled safely and becomingly. The man
who forgets what he has upon his head is a
boor, incorrigibly absent-minded. The right
manipulation of his hat is like spelling-it
most be learnedearly and thoroughly, or it
comes hard, and is always a skittish possession.
A mother habitually indulgent to her chil
dren. called her eldest born?a boy of ten
back when he had left her on a street corner.
The lad cowered under the severity of eye and
"Never dare to leave me in the street again
without raising your hat!" she said "It is a
token of respect you owe to every woman, and
ntZer 'or*** that your mother is a woman!"
The ^ reproof was double-barbed Associa
tion with mother and sisters is excellent practice
in an exercise that cannot be abated without
injury^to him who takes the liberty. "The
fellow ' who nods a cavalier welcome or fare
well to his sister at the window, or in the
street, will, with the most gallant intentions,
some dav, in a lit of abstraction, or when bur
ned by business into forgetfulness of his com
pany manners, nod as carelessly to some other
fellow s sister, and score a point in favor of
theriral whose hand, from the force of early
habit and long usage, moves involuutariiv to
ward the cap-brim at the approach of any
woman whose face is familiar to him.
A nod is not a bow.
To nod to a woman is open disrespect,
j v n??*her who carves the two sentences
k v. 'mPor^ thereof upon the mind of her
boy builds so much better than she know* as to
merit the gratitude of her sex. The bob or
duck of the covered head which salutes a com
rade of his own gender is barely pardonable,
even in America. Students in foreign univer
sities would be sent to Coventry were they to
practice it on meeting in corridor or thorough
fare. Equally general in the older lands,
where external courtesies rank higher than
with us, is the custom of doffing the hat on
passing a lady?stranger or acquaintance?on
the staircase or in the halls of hotel or other
public building. In witnessing the effect of
the neglect of the gracious little ceremony in
the country that fuuiishes the best husbands
in the world, it is impossible to restrain the
regretful sigh:
"These things ought ve to have done, and
not to leave the other undone!"
The undoing is carried to a disgraceful ex
cess as we descend the social scale. The lower
we go the more scanty is the observance of the
etiquette and moralities of the hat. until we
are forced to consider the important adjunct
to the outdoor toilet as an almost infallible ba
rometer of breeding. Respect of th? rules
regulating its management in refined circles is
the last sign of better days and better manners
with which the decayed gentleman parts.
When his hand forgets "the wav to the hat brim
he is very near the foot of tbe hill. What a
slangy lad once called in my hearing "the hat
trick' is likewise that which the self-made man
of plebeian extraction is slowest to learn. 1
have seen millionaires forget to remove their
hats in superb drawing-rooms.
One of the most mortifying experiences of
my earlier married life was the visit to our
country-house of a distinguished man, than
whom the state held none abler of his profession.
We had invited several friends to meet him.
and the dinner given in his honor passed off
smoothly. The lion roared in a perfectly sat
isfactory manner, winning universal admira
tion. Coffee was served on the veranda, and
the evening being cool, the great man called
for his hat. He might have asked permission
from the women present to assume it, we
thought, but orators must preserve their vocal
cords from rust. As the chilliness increased
we adjourned to the library, where a fire had
been kindled There, in the assembled presence
of our choicest neighbors, the great man wore
his hat until the hour of separation! The
recollection is an agony. The inference, borne
out by subsequent discoveries, was inevitable.
He was a commoner of the commonalty and
vulgar ingrain. It ought to have been impos
sible for him to commit such a breach of good
manners in any circumstances. The varnish of
surface?and unaccustomed?courtesy, like
other cheap and patent dressing, requires fre
quent renewal, and cannot be warranted to
As a grateful contrast. I offer another au
thentic incident. A true gentleman, driving
through the country with his wife and children,
stopped at a small farm-house to inquire the
way. A child on the front seat of the carriage
had a view of him as he knocked at the door.
"Papa's talking to a lady," chirped the little
one. "I can't see her, but I know, because he
took off his hat when the door opened nd is
standing with it in his hand"
The "lady" followed him to .the steps as he
returned to the carriage. Her sleeves were
rolled up to her shoulders; she wore a shabby
calico gown without a collar. Her hair was
unkempt; her arms and hands dripped with
suds. Her parting directions were shrilly nasal
and ungrammatical. The man, who appeared
beside ner as a prince beside a serf, stood with
his noble head bared as in a royal presence.
"How could you?" queried the quick-eyed oc
cupant of the front seat. "She wasn't a bit of
a lady."
"She was a woman, my bov; and a gentle
man is always a gentleman for Lis own sake."
"Men can do no end of pretty things with
their hats," sighed a belle to me. "The tactics
of that useful article (masculine ) are a science?
one of the fine arts. Yet two-thirds of them
don't half appreciate their privileges in that
line, or suspect their possibilities."
I saw a man who calls himself a gentleman
kiss his betrothed the other day, with his hat
set as immovably on his head as If it had grown
there with his growth, and strengthened with
his strength!
Fancy a condition of mind and body that
could make such a thing practicable in a Chris
tian land, and in the nineteenth century.
How He Played Lady's Maid.

wife's maid, attempts to help her on with her
new winter dress.

She?Well, put it on carefullv now over my

possessed me to do it up before I put this thing
on, though I couldn't have raised my arms. I
suppose, afterward. Look out, there's a hook
caught in my' hairpin. For heaven's sake,
Charles, get it one way or the other, Fm
stifling, and my hair will all be down. There,

interferes with it. Suppose you could get the
cushion out? Rio it, pull it, anything! Don't

do it? Pull it, I tell yon! All right. Now see if it
looks too flat. Well, hook it then. Yes, you

How They May be Preserved In all Their

A great deal has been written on the preser

know, not only how to take care of them after
being cut, but how to cut them. On this latter
point a practical hint may be of service to our
readers. It might not occur to them that it
made any serious difference whether the stems
were broken off or cut with the knife or scis

the bald spot on his head was as red as paint.
