THE ELECTRIC NEEDLE.
Interring RxpfHfncf* of a Woman Who Hm IV<1 It for Year*. '?The interview with a physician on the t?e of the electric needle for killing superfluous hair," said a woman who haa practiced electro therapeutics in Washington for eleven year*, "which was printed in Th* 8tu a few dart ago contain* acme thing* that I moat take ex ception* to. I think I ought to be a* compe tent to np??k on the subject of the n*u of elec tricity in medicine as any physician, as I hare devoted my whole life to the study of electrical science, and of late year* hare given mv time exclusively to the application of the electric current to the cure of disease and the removal of superfluous hair. "The statements I take exceptions to in the phvsician's talk are those regarding the alleged d*nger to very nervous persons in the use or the electric needle and the injurv to the skin that is sometimes said to result. I have treated hundreds of women, children and men. and I have never found a person for whom I could not so regulate the current of electrity as to render the operation of pain-killing practically uniniurious if not entireless painless. As for injuring the skin I have never seen an instance of it. I have had a few female patients who feared before the operation that they would not be able to stand it. but on trial they did not And it nearly aa painful as they thought for. HAD ALL HIS BEARD TAXI* OTT, "The only patient I ever had break down under the operation," the electrician continued, ? was a man. He was a young actor, about twentv-three year* old, and he wanted all hi* beard killed in order to be able to rlav female Darts His beard was so strong and dark that all the powdor and paint he could put on would not conceal the root* of it. So he came to me, and I undertook to kill his beard for him. When I had taken out about five hundred hairs be told me to stop, saying that he couldn t stand the peculiar sensation produced by the electric curre nt any longer. He said if I were to stick him with a knife or hit him with a club over the head he would be able to bear it, but he saiJ the sensation produced by the needle was maddening. 80 he said he would takea little morphine to b race him up. I t"ed dissuade him, but he assured me that he wa* in the habit of taking the drug. ^en ho came back 1 began on him again, and this time he stood the operation without wincing. " Did you succeed in killing off all his beard/ got his face as smooth and clear of hair as a babv's. almost," the electrician said '?? 1* fore I let him go. You could not tell that he ever had anv hair on his face. ?? Do rnanv men come to you to have their beards killed in that way V* the reporter m ^^"rhat wa* the onlv case in which I killed all a man s beard." Was the answer -A great many men come to me to have portions of the beard which grow high up on the cheeks to ward the eves taken out. One man who had been so foolish a* to shave hi*no?? had a strong growth of hair appear on that feature, and I removed it for him. A great many men with evelashes that meet have the hair* above the nose removed. Sot long ago I thinned out the hairs in the eyebrows of a prominent man here. His brows were very bushy, and the hairs so long that they fell down almost into his eyes. MARINO * HIOH fOUHIAB. "Another very well-known public man whose hair grew far down on his forehead," continued the woman, "applied to me a couple of months ago to see if I could do anvthing for him. I took off an inch and a half of hair from temple to temple across his forehead, and he now has a noble brow instead of the low one which for merly gave him a rather forbidding appear ance. You can see no mark to indicate where the hair was removed. The skin on his fore head is all as smooth as your own. I performed a similar operation on a boy, whose hair grew down almost to the eyebrows." rrr to sleep bt the electric ccrrest. ??80 far is it from being true that the opera tion of hair-killing with the electric needle is generally painful or injurious," the speaker resumed, after a pause, "that I have had chil dren on whom I was operating go to sleep. It is well known that electricity is almost a spe cific for nervous diseases, and is every day coming more and more into use in medicine, taking the place of drugs. There is a ladv here from whoje face, some months ago. I re moved a growth of hair. She is very nervous, and since that time she has come back re peatedlv to have me go over her face again, because' she finds the sensation produced bv the electric needle pleasant and bracing. She says she feels as if she had taken a tonic after the operation." "I suppose you have some curious experi ences with patients." suggested the reporter, as the conversation flagged. .... "I do. indeed," the electrician said, after a thoughtful pause. "I sometimes feel that 1 have a mission to perform, so terribly do some women take to heart the disfigurement of their faces bv growth of hair. Only a few days ago a woman came to me in great distress, s&v ing that her husband had become estranged from her because of a mustache which had appeared on her lip. She said he shunned her as if he hated to see her. On one occasion he told her he did not believe she was a woman at all. The poor woman was really in great distress and besought me to help her. I soon had her lip as clean as ever again, and hope her husband s love for her has come back. Another young woman who came to me had got into such a morbid state of mind from brooding on the disfigurement of her face by hair that she actually went into hysterics in talking about it w ith me. wHT one woman lixed kadrid a* a residence. "But the most curiou* case in my experience i* that of a well-known society woman of Wash ington. A heavy mustache appeared on her lip several years ago. It became so con si ncuou* that people turned in the street to look at it and she frequently was mortified be ? and endurance bv remarks on her appearance so loud that she could plainly overhear them. Sue traveled in Europe a good deal, but every i l .ee she went people stared at her mustache, i mallv she went to Spain, and at Madrid she f .uu.i'that her disfigurement attracted no at tentiou. because most of the Spanish ladies were similiarly affected. She remained in Madrid for ten"or twelve years, only returning to this country recentlv. I removed her mus tache not long ago and she is now reconciled to America." A Grand Jury's Irony. objections to the name* or "boodler*" and "iMIEALEBs" CARVED IN PCBLIC PLATES. The December grand jury in Chicago sub mitted its final report to Judge Jamison Satur day afternoon. It has been the custom to cut t ?e names of the builders, contractors and members of the county board in the corner atones of public offices when built, and some of these have subsequently been found guilty v! malfeasance in office. Inferring to this faci, the report of the grand jury says: "The jury also found the names of well-known thieves, baodlers and squealer* staring them in the fstce at each of the county institutions visited. 1? it is a credit to the boodler and thief, the names of the men now in state* prison and th* fellows who save themselves by the betrayal of c imrmles in crime* should be permitted to re main on the marble slabs of the buildings in the county, but not otherwise. We therefore recommend that the name* of the boodlers, commissioners, contrsctors and squealers be erased from all the different institutions of the county and that the word boodler be cut into the marble in the same kind of letters." The Oldest Bride Dead. sax harried at 89 ask lived to be 103 tears OLD?HER HUSBAND IS 95k. A Lexington. Ky., special to the Philadelphia Press says: "Mrs. J. O. C hina died in this city last Wednesday, of pneumonia, at the age of one hundred and two years. Not only wa* she remarkable for her age, but also for the fact that she was married at a time of life which but few people attain. Her marriage took place but thirteen years to a day before her death. Her husband.' Dr. Chinn, was only seven years younger, their ages being eighty-nine and eighty-two years respectiv. lv at the time of their nuptial*. Dr. Cninn had once been mayor of this citv, and both came of old families. Their health wa* excellent, and both appeared younjrer by many year* than their actual age. Mrs. Chinn preserved her mental faculties to a remarkable degree. She was a flue conversa tionalist and had an almost unimpaired mem ory. She wa* a devoted member of the Chris tian church, or Campbellitea, as the denomina tion is more generally termed. Her large for tune was liberally handled. The funeral took place on Friday from the church in which she was married. Dr. Chinn survive* hi* aged wife and is still in good health. Deserted raoa a Ctrxarder. ?The Cnnard steamship Scythia sailed from the docks at East , Boston Saturday noon for Liverpool, but only got aa far as quarantine, aa a portion of the crew deserted the ship. The deserters went in a body to the British consul and reported that the steamer was loaded above PlimsoU's mark. This was before the sailing of the steamer, and the conanl hastened to the Cunard dock to in vestigate, but arrived too tote. He took charge of the sailor*. AN AMERICAN BRIDE. Birmingham'! Enthusiastic Welcome to Mrs. Chamberlain?Valuable Presents. Special Cable Dispatch to the W. T. World. Before Mr. Joseph Chamberlain returned here from his honeymoon there was a good deal of friction among the local society about the public reception to be tendered to himself and his American bride. Certain prominent people who know Mr. Chamberlain socially, though they detest him politically, were cautious about following the bent of their social inclina tions. because the liberal-unionists were doing their best to render the public reception an affair of political significance. But with the tact which invariably characterizes him Mr. Chamberlain has turned all discord into har mony. and the public reception to Mr. and Mrs. Chamberlain on Wednesday night will as sume the shape of a cordial welcome home from all the best people of Birmingham and of the Midlands, irrespective of political affinities. Mr. Chamberlain lias arranged for another meeting of a purely political nature, in which he will address his constituents. The ladies of Birmingham have subscribed for two splendid presents for Mrs. Chamber lain. One is a verv rich necklace of seventy three selected pearls strung on fine silk with a single diamond clasp. It cost #2.000. Another gift is a diamond six-pointed star composed of fifty-five stones of the finest water. Tnese are set in silver, with a gold mount, and form either a brooch or a hairpin. The center diamond weighs one and a quarter carats, and between the rays of the star are shorter pro jections. each bearing a smaller brilliant. For wearing it as a pendant it is provided with an ordinary br>och pin. but for use as an orna ment in the hair there is a pin with a spiral spring attached, so as to cause the diamonds to sparkle brilliantly with each movement of the neai The star is contained in a case of chocolate-colored velvet and has the monogram M. E. C. in saw-pierced silver. The gifts from Mr. Chamberlain's constituents to his bride consist of n gold bracelet and brooch, with an address on illumined vellum, which in cludes this sentence: "You come to us repre senting a noble family of long descent in a great country connected with us by nearest ties of race, and joining with our own in as pirations for the highest state of civilization." In another illumined address the Birming ham arms are introduced on a shield enfolded bv the English and American (lags with Mrs. Chamberlain's monogram. The ladies' ad dress to MrR. Chamberlain says: 'Tn coming among us it is your happy lot to be dowered with wealth and with the interest, sympathy, and kindly affection which Mr. Chamberlain's fellow-townsmen offer as a marriage portion to his bride. We pray that for many years to come his life ana patriotic service may be con tinued, and that tne fullest measure of human happiness may be granted to yon both. We request your acceptance of our'gift, which we believe will have for you a value far beyond that which attaches to its intrinsic worth by its being an expression on our part of a warm and hearty welcome to your new homo in the old country." The requests for invitations to the presenta tion reception are so numerous that, though many have been refused, over two thousand have been issued, and the reception will be held in the Town hall, which is about as large as the hall of the Cooper Union. All that Birming ham can do in the way of flowers and music has been arranged. Mr. and Mrs. Chamberlain will be accompanied by Mr. Austen Chamber lain, Miss Chamberlain, and by Lady Munde ville, who is a guest at Highbury. She Caught the Thief. A detective's daughter pursues a pick pocket AND CAPTURES HIM. Annie Sullivan, a petite yonng woman, is a daughter of Detective Uichard Sullivan of New York, and is employed as cashier at a fancy goods store.. Last Friday evening at 6 o'clock she left the store in company with another young woman who is also employed there. Crossing Grand street they walked arm in arm through Eldridge street and had just passed Broome, when a man of medium height and ugly features forced his way between them and hastened on. Annie at once discovered that her pocketbook was gone, and, telling hercom panion so, gave chase to the thief. A man, who had overheard her remark, gave chase also, but Annie overtook the thief first. Her black eyes snapped Saturday as she told how she shook him and compelled him to drop her pocketbook. The thief, however, was about to strike her in the face, when the man who had joined in the chase arrived. The thief fled, but the strange man caught him and a policeman took hi<n to the Eldridge-street station. The prisoner said he was Jos. Goldstein, a Russian, twenty-seven years old. and a tailor. At Essex market he pleaded guilty and Justice Patterson held him in 91,300. Lawrence Barrett Afflicted. THE TRAOEDIAN SAID TO HAVE A VERY TROUBLE SOME TUMOR. Lawrence Barrett, who closed a long en gagement in New York Saturday night, in con junction with Edwin Booth, is in very poor health, and dreads that he may have to be laid off for recuperation even before he gets through the present season. His ailment has caused a swelling of the neck. The nature of the growth is glandular, and beyond much question it is a tumor. It was first observed by Mr. Barrett about a year ago, and it has steadily enlarged, until now it is a striking disfigurement. It is understood that he will submit to a surgical operation in the spring, and upon the outcome of that will depend his continuance on or retirement from the stage. His stage costumes have been so altered as to reach to his chin, thus covering the chief swelling, but under his cnin are two large lumps that cannot be hidden, and which alter the outlines of his face radically. Women's Figures In France. W. C. Brownell in Seribner. In an assemblage of French women from a ball in the Faubourg St. German to abalde C oprra the number of admirable figures is very striking: the face may be positively common, but the figure is nearly sure to be superb. The wasp-waist so much affected across the channel is apparently confined to fashion-plates designed for exportation. The unwisdom of tight-lacing is evidently not more perfectly appreciated than its unsightlincss, though the relations of hygiene to beauty are thoroughly understood. With this excellence of figure generally goes a corresponding excellence of carriage. In this respect the skill with which the Louis Quinze heel is circumvented is beyond praise, and with regard to the tact and taste displayed in the garb which decorates this figure and carriage the wo; Id is, I suppose, as well agreed now as in the time when the empress set its fashions for it in a more inexorable way than the women of the present republic can pretend to. ??? ? Making It Pleasant for Mr. Phelps. London Cable in Sew York Tribune of Sunday. Except by Lord Salisbury in his official ca pacity as foreign minister, everything is being done by the English to make the last weeks of the American minister's stay pleasant. Mr. 1'helps' friends now believe the date of his de parture is very near and invitations pour in. The city of London, which probably has its own opinion of the surliness of the foreign of fice, is hospitable, as usual. With the city com panies, as with the lord mayor, the American minister is a favorite guest. He has accepted an invitation from the Worshipful Company of Fishmongers, perhaps the most important of these societies, for January 16. Mr. and Mrs. Phelps went to Mentmore on Saturday as guests of Lord and Lady Kosebery till Monday. Mr. Edwardes, first secretary of the British legation at Washington, is not yet allowed to return to his post, and is at present staying with Mr. Chamberlain at Highbury. Bishop Keane In Rome. Borne Special to the N*. Y. Herald. January 5.

The document is signed bv the archbishops of Bal timore, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and by the bishop* of Peoria, Dayton, and La Crosse. Foub Colored Murderers Drowned.?A gang of South Carolina negroes recently de termined to murder and rob another negro who bad a large sum of money, which he carried on bis person. The plan was to commit the mur der while the victim was being taken from Chester to Union countv across Broad river in s boat The party of live set out to cross the river in a skill. John Fraser. the man with the money, was in the party, and bad no idea of his danger. While in the middle of the river Fraser was murdered and robbed, and probably in a struggle for his money the boat was over turned. and the entire party of murderers was drowned. It was supposed to have been an or dinary accident until the body of Fraser floated ashore in Union county. His head had been split open aad his pockets rifled. FOREIGN NEWS AND GOSSIP. A passenger train vh blown from the rails near Finme, Hungary. Saturday, during a vio lent storm. Three persona were killed and many injured. The Russian empress thinks little of court etiquette. Recently at some function at the Danish court, where properly she had prece dence of the Princess of Wales, she laugningly invited the princess to go ahead of her, saying: "When I am here I am only my mother's sec ond daughter." An attempt was made Saturday to blow np the building in Madrid occupied by the minis try of the interior. A petard was exploded in the rear of the building, but beyond ?nnu>hing the windows it did no damage. Saturday Mr. Gladstone visited Pompeii on a vessel lent by the municipal authorities. The Russian expedition to Thibet, inter rupted by the death of Prjevalsky. has been resumed, but meanwhile the British Indian government slips ahead by a friendly agree ment with China, which acknowledges the con trol of the former over Sikkim. The dispute on this subject caused the recent hostilities be tween India and Thibet. Sikkim is a state of perhaps 2,500 square miles, with a population of perhaps 50.000. situated among the Hima layas, on the frontier of Britisn India, and un der the latter's protection. It is reported from Belgrade that Gen. Grncio has consented to form a cabinet, having re ceived from King Milan, who reserves that right, a hint as to whom he would appoint minister of war and minister of foreign af fairs. Cardinal Manning has prepared an exhaus tive paper on the American public school sys tem, based on the statistics of Montgomery.

The rivers have overflowed their banks, and the streets of Perpignan and the conntrv round about are flooded. Communi cation nag been stopped, an enormous amount of damage haB been done and much distress caused. M. Jacques, president of the council of the Seine, has been nominated bv the various groups of republicans as sole candidate against Boulanger for the vacant seat in the ohamber of deputies for Paris. A letter from the pope was read Sunday in the churches of the diocese of Down and Con nor sympathizing with the Irish people in their present suffering, and praising their marvelous fortitude. The failure of the prosecution of Prof. Geffc ken, for publishing portions of the diary of the late Emperor Frederick, has caused another sensation in Germany. The imperial tribunal declined to proceea against Prof. Geffcken because it was impossible to prove thut he was conscious of the treasonable character of his publication. Rubinstein has finished a new grand opora, "Gorivska," on a Russian subject, and Edmond Audrun has about completed a new comic opera. The author of "Madame Angot" also has a new bouffe nearly ready. One of Osman Digna's lieutenants, who has deserted his leader and has arrived at Suakim. declares that Emin Bey has been captured and is a prisoner at Khartoum, where he is well treated by his captors. The Keichaanzthjer publishes a rescript from Emperor William to Prince Bismarck, bearing (late of December 31. It reads: "Dear Prince: The year which has brought us such heavy visitations and such irrevocable losses draws to an end. It is a joy and solace to think that you still stand loyally by mv side with fresh strength to enter upon the new year. From my whole heart I invoke upon you happiness and blessings, but. above all, uninterrupted good health. I trust to God that I may still be long permitted to labor with you for "the wel fare and greatness of our fatherland." The king of the Netherlands was reported to be in a dying condition on Saturday. He took nourishment with difficulty. It is reliably stated in Paris that the recently executed murderer, Prado. was the illegitimate son of Gen. Prado, formerly of Peru. Excitement was caused in the court at Naas, Ireland, Friday, by Solicitor Hurley, counsel for the prisoners on trial, shouting that Judge Fitzgerald's conduct on the bench was a scan dal. Hurley was sentenced to seven days' im prisonment for contempt of court. A painful sensation has beencaused at Ber lin by the emperor attending a private per formance of "The Rheingold" at the opera house. The liberals condemn his action as a fresh insult to the memory of his father, the term of mourning for whom has not yet expired. Prince Bismarck will go to Berlin next Thurs day. Seven skaters were drowned in the Ludwig canal at Nuremberg Friday. The betrothal is announced of Prince Will iam of Baden to Princess Marie, niece of the Grand Duke of Baden. The central monarchist committee at Paris has decided not to advance a candidate against Gen. Boulanger. Color Line in the Churches. From the Philadelphia Times. The Northern and Southern Presbyterians, after praying over the matter and talking about it from every point of view, have decided to remain Northern nnd Southern Presbyterians still. It was the colored brother that perpetu ated the schism. The Southern Presbyterians insisted that the colored brother should flock by himself, and that there should be no mis understanding or false pretenses about the matter. The Northern Presbyterians wanted him admitted to churches, presbyteries, svnods and assemblies on professedly equal terms. The southern wing declined to accept this as the fundamental basis of a reunion, and no reunion is probable. There is little doubt that the negotiations for a reunion 6f the Meth odist and Baptist bodies will fall to the ground for the same reason. Race prejudice is a principle so deeply imbedded in human nature that it requires more Christianity than the average human being has yet been able to absorb to eradicate it. A Romance In tlie Haytian War. From the New York Bt?r. The story is that there is a very rich and rather good-looking widow (slightly coffee colored, to be sure) who is advancing tho sinews of war to President Legitime. Whether she is doing this with the view of booming the Haytian securities or of ultimately capturing the president and becoming the mistress of the Haytian white house at Port-au-Prince is not stated, but, as Legitime happens to have a wife and family, the latter suggestion is hardly probable. Now Is the Time for Pneumonia. From the New York Times. "Got a cold, have you?" began a conversa tion between a well-known up-town physician and a patient a day or two ago. "Well you are in the fashion. At least 85 per cent of all my patients have colds, and they will have the pneumonia as a sort of wind-up if they are not mighty careful when this warm weather ceases, which it will with an almighty snap within a few days. The cause of the colds is that the system, which is far more sensitive than a film of gelatine to the action of heat and cold, has become accustomed to this springlike weather, and the longt r it lasts the more accustomed it becomes. The system appreciates the fact that all this is unseasonable and trusts in a man's or woman's good sense to protect it. "But they don't do it. Just as soon as it gets warm they abandon their winter wraps and the air, which is still filled with frost, although not manifest because of the directness of the sun, gets in the crevices of the winter armor, and the first thing my patient knows he has to hold on to his hat to keep from sneezing it off. The pores have openea to secure some of these illusive advantages of warm weather, and just as soon as a genuine cold snap comes the deaths from pneumonia will be greater in number than they have ever before been in this city." Probably Murdered bt His Rival.?On Fri day a Mr. Brooks, a prominent young merchant of McDowell's Mills, near Fayetteville, Tenn., came to town, secured his marriage license ana started home. This morning his body was found lying on the roadside with a bullet-hole through his head. When he left town he was accompanied bv a man named Smith, who was a bitter rival of his for the hand of the young lady Brooks was to marry. Brooks was a model young man, liked by all who knew him. The governor of New York has commoted to imprisonment for life Adolph Reich, con victed in the county of New York of murder in the first degree and now under sentence of MR. PARNELL TALKS FREELY. His Health Restored?View* on the Com mission, Coercion sod Other Topics. Mr. Parnell has been interviewed for the New York World by Mr. T. P. O'Connor, M. P., pres ident of the land league of Great Britain, and one of the Irish leader's chief lieutenants. Mr. O'Connor notes the great improvement which has taken place in Mr. Parnell's health, and says: This is the moment to confess what it would hare been improper to reveal at an earlier period. The fact is, we thought a couple of Tear* sgo that Mr. Parnell hsd a very bad chance of ever recovering. He need to come down to the house with a face heavily lined and ghastly pale. His walk was feeble and his eye bad the glassiness of coming death. Mr. Parnell attributes his bad health to his hsbits of eating too fast, sometimes eatiug too much, and sleeping too long, and his recovery is due to the restricted regimen on which he was placed by Sir Henry Thompson, his physi cian, and plenty of exercise. The only manner in which he fails to note improvement is in his weight. Though within naif an inch of six feet in height he weighs only 154 pounds. When asked what he thought of the proceed ings of the commission as far as they had gone, Mr. Parnell said: "You will judge of that by the fact that I have ceased to attend the court. Up to the present the Time* has not got beyond a general de scription of the disturbed state of Ireland. Every attempt to oonnect, not us personally? for there hasn't been even an attempt to do that, except in the ridiculous story about Har rington. told by an informer?but every at tempt to connect our organization with crime has completely broken down." '?Of course, you are not surprised at this?" '?Of course not. The Times has not suc ceeded in finding anything, for the reason that there was nothing to find.' THE rOBOBD LETTERS. "And now about the forged letters?" At this point Mr. Parnell's face assumed its most sphinx-like expression. He said: "On that point permit me to confine myself strictly to tne statement that we shall prove our case to the hilt." Mr. Parnell talked freely of the financial aspect of the Irish movement. The annual ex penses are estimated at ?45,000 ($225,000}, of whiuh ?25.000 go to evicted tenants, for whom houses are built and to whom weekly allow ances of food are made; the Irish-parliamen tary fund requires ?10,000; the Irish press agency, which supplies Irish speakers to Eng lish meetings and distributes home-rule liter ature. costs ?5,000; registration of voters and miscellaneous expenses call for ?5.500 more. Mr. O'Connor asked where the funds neces sary to meet this enormous expenditure hud been received from last year. Mr. Parnell ftfiswcrsd * "I got ?10.000 from Mr. Rhodes, a South African merchant, who is in sympathy with the Irish cause, and I got ?1,000 from Mr. Mur rough, an Irishman, a friend and partner of Mr. Rhodes in the Kimberley mines, Some money has also come from Australia, and our organization in Ireland brings us in about ?10,000 annually." "How does America stand?" "That is a subject upon which I speak with some hesitation. We nave been treated with such extraordinary generosity by America that I am afraid to say it, though it is true, that the subscriptions from there have rather fallen off for the last year or two. But then they have been very busy with their own great political struggles. Besides, they have sent us vast sums in the past. Where would we have been without the assistance of America?" The defense of the Times'' charges is esti mated at not less than ?50,000. and the Times' expenses are put down at ?150,000. While Mr. l'amell does not believe that the govern ment is aiding the Times financially, ne ssvs it is evident that the whole executive machin ery in Ireland has been placed at their dis posal. Mr. Parnell was next asked whether he thought coercion had suoceeded, and replied: , "I am bound to say that the people have re sisted coercion with a firmness beyond all my expectations. To this firmness I attribute the complete breakdown of coercion. You see, the coercion which was at the disposal of Mr. For ster was much more potent against such a movement as ours than the coercion of Mr. Bal four. Mr. Balfour's calculation was that he would break down the organization by fear. For this reason he employed the prison bru talities which have been so often exposed. He j imagined that if he made imprisonment severe enough people would hesitate to run the risk of it, and that thus the organization would melt away." ??And the calculation has completely mis carried? "Completely. Indeed, coercion is a miser able failure. Mr. Balfour began by prosecut ing editors for publishing reports of the league. He has ceased these prosecutions. He prose cuted newBvendors for selling the papers that contained the reports. That clans of prose cution has ceased. He suppressed by proclama tion the league in three counties. The branches j of the league continue to meet in these counties i as regularly as ever before, and the member ship has increased rather than diminished. He began by reversing the whole policy of Sir Michael Hicks-Beach with regard to evictions, claiming that he had nothing to do with the justice or injustice of these evictions, and that he was obliged to send troops and police to help the worst landlord in carrying out the most cruel evictions. And now Lord Clauri carde and other landlords are vainly asking for troops and police. Mr. Balfour won't give them. Of course there is still a great deal of ; cruelty and tyranny and wrong, but the back of coercion is broken, and Mr. Balfour has failed as ignominiously as auy of his prede cessors." Mr. Parnell expressed his complete confi dence in the easy triumph of home rule at a general election. When that might occur no one could prophesv, but he thought the personal element which contributes greatly to parlia mentary battles was beginning to work preju dicially against the government. All the places have been given away and ambitious men have nothing more to hope from the gov ernment. Lord Randolph Churchill is very dissatisfied. and there's no knowing when he may be able to trip them up, for he is a very clever man. Foreign Taste In Jewelry. From the Jewelers' Woekly. A clever French lady has prepared the fol lowing schedule of the world's taste in jewelry: Oriental?Beautiful stones; poorly cut and poorly mounted. Russian?Faultless stones; mountings which lack style. The jewelry is rich, but without taste or originality. Knglish?Choice stones; mountings beastly and excessively heavy. German?Poverty-stricken and in bad taste. Austrian?Heavier than the English; taste on a par with the German. Italian?Has not advanced since the days of Pompeii. Spanish?Nothing but votive offerings. French?With mediocre stones, a little gold and much taste, incomparable jewelry is pro duced. The author has nothing to say of American workmanship, but the reuders or "The Weekly" have no doubt decided long ago that their pro ducts combine all the beauties and none of the defects of all the rest of the word taken to gether.

Found It ImpocaU ble to Wed Bardolph Kiljordan. From the Chicago Tribune. "Miss Oarpickle, you are trifling with me!" Bardolph KilJordan stood before her aserect, imperious and gloomy as the star actor of a broken and dismembered dramatic combina tion standing on one tide of the track half way between stations and watching a hand-car pro pelled by section men sweeping rapidly past and disappearing in the hasy distance. Sir. Kiljordan burned with the indignation of an abused, insulted man. "For months snd months," he said, "yon have encouraged me. You hare smiled upon me. You have accepted my attentions. You hare listened to me with apparent approval when I have ventured to hint at a feeling stronger than friendship " "Mr. Kiljordan," interposed, the young lady. "I will not deny that your intentions have been agreeable to me." "Then why, Vinnie," he exclaimed implor ingly. "why "do you tell me it can never be? Why do you look at me coldly and say we were not meant for each other?" "I would have saved you this pain if I could. Mr. Kiljordan. I have waited and waited, hoping that the barrier between us might dis appear?that you would?would see what it is that interposes so fatally??" "Vinnie," he exclaimed tremulously and ex citedly, '-perhaps it is not too late, even yetl Perhaps I may De able to " "It is impossible, Mr. Kiliordan." replied the young lady, firmly yet kindly. "1 shall always entertain the highest esteem for vou as a man, a citizen, a friend and an excellent judge"? here her voice faltered?"of post-theatrical refreshments, but any closer relationship I am now convinced can never be thought of. "Vinnie Oarpickle!" he exclaimed withbitter ness, "so be it! I shall not go down on my knees. It would do no good The carpet, besides"?and the young man looked at it dejectedly?"if you will excuse me for saying so, Miss Garpickle, is?is not in that condi tion?ah?of tidiness that?er " "Perhaps, Mr. Kiljordan," suggested the young lady, freezingly, "you will put an end to this painful scene by??" "Going? Certainly, Miss Garpickle. cer tainly. But I think I have the right to ask you, since this will probably be the last time I shall ever have the opportunity, what the nature of the barrier is that separates us. Have I not?" "You have, sir." "Then why have you refused to be my wife?" "Because, Mr. Kiliordan," she replied, with ineffable sadness, "I can never link my destiny with that of a young man who wears reversible cuff 8." Died In the Faith. Washing-ton Correspondence New York Tribune. Seven or eight democrats were discussing the defeat of their party and their own per sonal defeat in one of the hotel lobbies the other night. As each point was talked over, they always wound up by swearing at the tariff as the one and only cause of party and personal defeat Finally a member from New York said: "We stuck by Cleveland; I think he ought to do with us as old man Saunders, of Maine, did with his seven wives." "How was that?" asked one of the group. "When the first died." resumed the mem ber from New York, "old man Saunders, put up a little white-washed plank with her name: SAUAH ADAMS. WIFE OF GAMALIEL SAUNDERS. in black letters. No. 2 was treated to the same white board with her name and 'Wife of Gamaliel Saunders' in black letters. No. 3, No. 4, No. 5, No. 6 were all laid in a row by No. X and No. 2, and each grave was headed by the slab with staring blaek letters. Finally, No. 7, joined her six predecessors below ground, and the old man. who was going to leave town and go west with his sons, put on his seventh wife's headstone, ELVIRA ANN, WIFE OF GAMALIEL SAUNDERS, and at the top he placed a hand pointing to the row of six tombstones and indicating the in scription: THESE ALL DIED IN THE FAITH. "It's nothing but fair that Grover Cleveland should do the same by us. We are buried in a row and he should erect a suitable monument with the hand pointing to us and saying: "These all died in the true tariff faith." - ? The Reign of the Mustache. From the H?ir Dresser. About ten years ago a hairless, saturnine, and clever man in the Carlton club, in London, an nounced that wearing mustaches was bad form. The statement was made with great solemnity in the course of a speech which the club man delivered at a banquet where Labouchere chanced to be a guest. A short time after this the editor made the mustache a series of caus tic observations in his paper, and announced solemnly that the mustache would have to go, as it was no longer in good form. Whether the discussion meant anything or not is a prob lem. but it caught the fancy of mankind with a grip compared to which the everlasting ques tion of whether marriage is a failure or not sinks out of sight. So much is said about the correctness of ap pearing in society circles without a mustache that the statement readily gained credit that wearing mustaches had to be dropped out of fashionable life in England A thorough paced investigation of the English capital proved the fidsity of all this. London men nave sacrificed tile short side whiskers that once adorned their faces, but they cling to the mustache with a tenacity that nothing can cut. The abiding horror of a man's life that he will be mistaken for a waiter at an evening party is somewhat relieved by the fact that waiters are not allowed to wear mustaches and gentlemen are. The reason that short-clipped side whiskers went was because it was essen tially Hibernian. Such facial adornments were spoken of as Galwavs, and this was too much tor the British mind. As far as this country is concerned the im pression seems to be that if a man can raise a mustache no power on earth can persuade him to shave it off. If a man cannot have the sort of a mustache he wants he usually takes the sort that comes to him by right of nature. A good deal of coercion is used on the quiet with refractory mustaches, but they are no longer curled, put up in papers over night, greased, waxed or otherwise abused. The era of simplicity has affe ;ted the mus tache as well as the rest of man's general make up. No man who pretends to be at all in the swim wears the flowing side whiskers to which Dundreary gave his name, and beards which were popularized by the Prince of Wales a few years ago have gone out of fashion. No wonder, for the prince himself has abandoned tliem, and he now wears his beard pointed and clipped close to the face. Boulanger has set tlie fashion for Europe in this respect, and the crown prince of Great Britain is more or less of an imitator of the French upstart. BULL-FlGHTING INTRODUCED IN TEXAS.? Friday those having charge of the fiestas at Laredo, Tex., took out a license for an acro batic performance, which was given Saturday evening in a regular bull-pen. A large crowd, mostly Mexicans, was present, and the acro batic performance had not progressed far be fore the cry went up from them of "el toro." which indicated that the real object of the crowd in gathering was to see a bull-light. In ? response to the cry the ring was soon cleared of acrobatic apparatus and the bulls came bounding in, and a regular bull-fight was soon in progress. There were four savage fights ana three bulls were killed The city police stood by and witnessed the sport. m? Frightened Hib Wife to Death.?A farmer named Clatterbav^h, living near Greenville, Ya., while drunk, got hold of a false face and took it home. He thought it would be fun, and took it home to frighten his wife, who was in a critical condition. He put the face on, and, with a large club, entered his house and made for his wife, as though to club her. She became frightened so that she went into spasms and died It is reported that the man has been arrested. Kilrain's Friends Waiting fob Sullivan.? A Toronto special to the Baltimore American says the representatives of Kilrain arrived here this afternoon to make a match with Sullivan. The big fellow has not yet shown up. A dis patch from Boston says he will arrive early to-morrow morning. Kilrain is represented by "Parson" Davies. his manager; "Ned" Plum mer, of New York, and William E. Harding, of the Police Qawette. Sullivan, it is thought, will be accompanied by "Charlie" Johnson, "Bill" Wakely and A. T. Lumley. The only trouble in making the match will be in selecting a referee. Tn Jurisdiction in the Cam.?Register of Voters John L. Griffith, and his clerk, Albert K. Starling, had a hearing at Annapolis Satur day before United States Commissioner Stock ett, on the charge of frand at the recent re gistration in the eighth district of Anne Arun del county. Commissioner Stockett quashed the warrant, the ground being that the parties, being already under bail for appearance before the Anas Arundel circuit and the state and federal courts, having concurrent Jurisdiction in the matter, the state court having lint taken cognisance of the natter, the federal court has no jurisdiction.
