"Wcnien no more by clothes can man's m1n<1 tell
Thau k_uw by looks an ape from how in* swell.'*
Counting honors easy it is the object of this
paper merely to present a chapter upon the
prevailing "crazes." the outcome of that love
of novelty which has been catered to from
time immemorial. And very merrily indeod
and swiftlv is the stream of novelty speeding
along in the realms of fashion in these Uars. It
is hardly the thing now to worship at the sbriue
of musty antiquity?the new and novel afford
the newest charms. How delightfully charm
ing it is to be odd. and to be therefore the ob
served of all observers! Conditions are rapidly
assuming the shape of th? "late modern ' in
contradistinction to the "early ancient." Un
less checked the rage for the ' new will have
eclipsed the passion for the old. Little absurd
ities are constantly creeping into fashionable
circles, ringing with the utmost abandon from
tne pinnacle of the quaintly-shaped, strangely
trimmed high hat to the cute canvas slipper,
daintily tipped with patent leather. At times
these passing crazes are exquisite and capti
vating. at others the very embodiment of
irrationality. A trifling hobby is the idea they
convey?"fad" is the accepted term by whicn
they ire known. It is s word that seems to
hav? come to England from Nowhere and was
accorded a gushing, rapturous welcome.
Fortunately there are but few '-fads" the in
dulgence of which can be shared in by the
fashionable of both sexes, otherwise they would
prove too general for rivalry and anprofitable
as oddities. The whimsicalities enjoyed by
women afford the utmost amusement and in
vite the sharpest satires from men. and vice
versa, at the little peccadilloes of men women
level some of their keenest shafts of raillery.
There are. however, vantage grounds upon
which both sexes may meet and both sides
revel in wild but entirely innocuous competi
tion. See the contest between cane and
umbrella handles. The long, stout English ar
ticle in the way of a cane, caught amid-ship
and carried, or conveyed, to speak more to the
point, by a "fellah" from the club, has a rival?
uud one of the latest arrivals in Washington,
too?in the long slender stick, elegantly
wrought in gold and silver aud hung with
twisted tri-colored silken cords and tassel*,
with the mere intimation of a parasol or
umbrella at the lower end. In some instances
the nnibrella idjunct is noted for its conspicuous
absence. leaving a cane pure and simple; the
"La Tosca." for instance. Like all extreme
novelties, this latter innovation, if such it may
be termed, will move with the timidity anil
coyness of Mrs. Belva Lockwood's adaptation
of the tricycle. Lut some trifling excuse for its
use wiil be invert, d. and its general adoption
will, in all probability, eventually ensue.
Indeed it is already being utilized in a manner
to give it practical advantages by an attach
ment of a whistle at one end and" whip at the
other, for calling and governing the pet poodle
or pug.
THE CAMS* "rA?.w
Apropos to dogs ?whose itineracy as "fads"
is as old .is the hills?the strictly fashionable
canine must have a stric'ly original name, in
addition to th? bow of ribbon sometimes seen
tied to the tail close up to the body. Such a
distinction is a matter of much importance in
the establishment and maintenance of a pedi
gree. The d- ir girl mav love him. and fondle
him. and divide kisses between him and the
other fellow, but to n.tme him "Carlo" or
"I'rince" or "Dandy" any more is to stamp
k.m at once aud forever as a dog of low de
cree. Any name that may be equally happy
in describing his own tone or temperament,
or the tastes of the mistress, is the consumma
tion of art and ideality. A young lady living
near Dupont circle, who glories in the
possession of a pair of large dark brown
eyes and a luxuriant growth of rich au
burn hair, owns a brown-hue J spaniel which
she appropriately calls "Sienna;" an
other lady, in armv circles, has a lively,
playful, chipper little black-and-tan she
has named "Bijou." and so on. It was once
thf thing to have my lady's noodle match my
lady's costume. The name then was of minor
importance, the crazo being to have a perfect
companionship of tints between costume and
pet. I: was no doubt tough on poor poodle.
tHit if blue was to be worn he mast be tinted to
correspond. Next ilav. should pink be the
rhoneu color, Mr. Dog had to undergo a vigor
ous scrubbing with a certain kind of offensive
chemical ?oap. drv-rubbed and decorated a del
icate eonch-shell hue.
More estrangements between loving heart*,
more wrecks upon courtship's tempestuous sea,
more disruptions of connubial bliss can be
placed to the credit account of the pet-dog
? fad' than to any other known cause. More
nnholy anathema* have been heaped upon this
species of fondling than can be atoned for by
a,;es of penance and contrition. When an
in discriminating girl selects a poodle for a pet
and a dude for -a lover there is sure to be an
intense hatred between the two. and conse
quently continuous warfare. Who can blame
?he poor fellow?the dude, not the dog?if he
l'-ts Lis an,'ry pulsions rise when he puts hisi
iirm about the fragile waist of his angelic
Irieud only to get his fingers nagged at by the
teeth of a jealous and dogmatic rival?

msde to tit separately over each toe like the
tugers of a glove, a new and altogether oppo
site "fad," the lingeries* glove, is about to
come to grief. This was originally designed
for dinner wear but fashion, thirsting for
oddities, patronized aud introduced it to the
outer world. The lingers were cut off a little
bt fore the knuckles aud the edges finished with
lancy stitching. Uintrs could be displayed and
the fingers were at liberty for general use in
handling knives, forks, and spoous. and getting
change and car fare from the purse. This, it
wis discovered, was the very thing the street
car conductors had been usiug?without the
elaborate trimming?for years, so the novelty
was destroyed aud tne "fad undermined at the

not the natural course of events come to the
rescue. From a continuous hand shaking at
her receptions her right hand is said to have
become swollen, necessitating the wearing of a
larger and looser glove on that hand. "Fad"
worshipers seized upon the chance and the one
large glove bid fair to be a genuine "craze,"
but Mrs. Cleveland's hand having recovered

W e are told of a reception which waa at
tended by three sisters whose gowns were
chaste and irreproachable in taste, while over
each sbajiely arm was drawn a loug juaz-de
eur'Je differing in color from the other. One
sister wore a deep tan-colored glove on one
haud aud a plain black on the other; the sec
ond had a delicate pink glove on the right and
su olive-colored one on the left hand, while
the third wore respectively pale lemon and
silver gray. The novsity. so far aa novelties
go. was startling and for awhile popular, but
the funny fellows on the newspapers got in
their work with a naivete that killed the scheme
as a "fad." and it fell with one of their own
graphic "dull thuds."
The merry jingle of sleigh-bells are as nothing
to the rattle of pendants one sometimes hears
on the Avenue as a bevy of society girls sweep
by. As a rule, though, the single pendant is in
favor, the tiny enameled watch, a pencil aud
card-case, a lorgnette, boubonniere or vinai
grette suspended from the belt by a twisted
nickel or corruscated silver chain. The diminu
tive watch?over which the dumb-watch gen
erally has the advantage of having the time
c- rtainly correct twice in every twenty-four
hours?was for a while to be seen uniquely set
in an artfully conceived bracelet worn over the
sleeve instead of upon the bare wrist. Lately,
however, this same little watch has been trans
ferred from the bracelet to the cane or um
brella handle, into the head of which it ia cun
ningly inserted This portion of the "fad"
field is common property, so to speak, for not
only has the indolent bell*, when she wishes to
set'the proper time, merely to turn the hand,
literally, but the insipid dude can know within

"To he chie in conversation is aa attribute
much admired," says Kate Gather*ood, "in
either the man or the woman in society." A
generous sprinkling of slang is admissable
nowadays to enliven the small talk of the hour.
and a new pbra*e that is suggestive is welcomed
with positive delight But the latest. " In the

odd effect? tbough it is simply an elougated
form of the old popular and innch-ebttsed

political candidate, the hindmost how in a
race, the unfortunate investor in bank stock, of
the faro kind especially; in fact,.mishsps of all
sorts aro referred to technically as being " in

that most people under trying circumstances
are looked upon as being in hot water. Ihe
expression passes off for a novelty, but is
doubtless the same old-timey - pickle" into
which our grandames used to get when they
fl< w off at a tangent or our graudsires fell into
occasionally when out on a lark.
There is a growing tendencv toward the
introduction of a slight French or German
accent into common confabulation now. Girls
who indulge in this - craze" are called -Amer
ica-foreigners." and sometimes they have to
hesitate to recall a word of the poor old mother
tongue. The only trouble in the world with
this""fad" is that the owner is apt to forget
how to - speak English as she is spoked," and
is not likely to - think foreign aa she ia
-Chestnut" has been frozen completely out,
and the word -dusty." which is almost as
meaningless, substituted. If you want to ex
press admiration for snything, from a stylish
equipage to a gilded hair-pin. you need only to
say: "1 here is nothing dusty about that.
Just how -chestnut" wus significant it is hard
to say. There seems to be something quite
"dusty" about this.
With the close of the outing season went the
brown, healthy complexion those girl* acquired
who rusticated in the country or lolled about
on the sands of the seashore. The stay-at
homes had to have a color, too. and invented
the "tennis skin." Nor did the "fad" stop
there, the artistic sense of nature had to be
out done. If the hue of the hair could be changed
bv chemical means?a -fad" of loug standing
aiid numerous devotee*?why not the skin? We
read of a Minneapolis artist who is doing a
thriving business now by "touching up skins to
order." He advertises freely, and his "ads"
read Simply, "Handy will paint your skin." and
this he does with great artistic skill to match a
certain tint or costume. It is no new fact that
some women, slaves to variety, chose to be and
appear ae a brunette one night aud a blonde
the next. The skill of the hair hairdresser
lends itself easily to this vagarv. and the i.rt of
the skin-colorer puts on the nnishing touches
to?what might be called?the picture.
There are "fads" innumerable?large "fads.'
?mall -fads" and "fads" that have grown gray
in harness. The wearing of rings on the
thumb, which failed to fully materialize?the
??fad" of having live pets which domesticate
themselves about the house and make life to
others a burden: the literary "fad," which in
volves strolling lazily about with a large cloth
bouud book cla*|>ed in hand, never a word of
which is read?the Derby-hat "tad, which im
parts severity to the face?and the hundred
and one others which go to make up a good
portion of the ultra society girl's stock in trade.
Perhaps, after all. these feminine fancies com
pose the poetry of life, and life would indeed
be dull did not a scrap of poetical sentiment
ality creep in between the pro?? paragraphs
here and there.
Not all the fads in the catalogue are the out
come of women's whims?the men have theirs
as well?if not more so. Stroll alon? Pennsyl

them standing about the theater i.nd hotel

the play between acta?take them anywhere
you find them, aud ascertain the proportion
'unon whose backs you can chalk "Fad?inquire
w'lthin." Men with "fads" are as common as
trees; and later a chapter will be given on the
"fads" of men.
Horseshoes Without Nails.
from the Luiidou Tims*.
The ordinary method of shoeing horses is,
under the most favorable circumstances, a
tedious operation, and One. moreover, which
not uufrcquently results in temporary or even
permanent injury to the foot. Indeed, it has
been asserted by a eminent authority that out
of every forty horses shod annually one dies
from the results of pricking. Moreover, the
ordinary shoe attached in the ordinary
way is not adapted to horsea with cracked
or brittle hoofs. For horsea employed by
an aruiv in the field the hitherto practiced
mode of protecting a horse's hoof is particu
larly unsuitable, owing to the appliances re
quired, and, above all, the time required. A
cavalry patrol is surrounded by hostile parties,
and can only accomplish its work and escape
capture by vigilance and speed. The latter is
necessarily much affected by the occasional
casting of a shoe, which takes time, which
cannot be spared, for replacing. Again, a train
of wagons is either accompanying a force on a
forced march to the front, or is rapidly retiriug
to escape capture. The loss of a
aboe or two by the leading teams
may produce lameneas, and either delay
the whole train or cause the particular teams
I among which the accident occurs to fall into
the bauds of the enemy, or, at all events, pre
vent the arriving at the proper time of a por
tion of the stores. By means of cold shoeing
the necessity of a forge is avoided. Still the
system of cold shoeing, to be thoroughly ef
fective. requires a certain amount of trsining
on the part of each dragoon or driver, and the
shoeing operation involves considerable ex
| peuditure of time. The difficulties and objec
{ tions inseparable from any of the existing
j svsU-ms are particularly felt by an army in thu
? field.
They are obviated by the system of the Nail
| less horse shoe company. To explain the exact
' nature of the system without diagrams is im
possible. We, therefore, content ourselves with
! a brief outline of the principle. The shoe is at
tached by a single steel band which passes round
the hoof, well above the coronet, from one ex
tremity of the heel to the other, Hnd is kept in
position mainly by a steel pillar lying liat on the
front of the hoof and connecting the toe of the
shoe with the center of the band. There are
: also three small studs?situated one at the toe
1 and one at each side?which slightly indent
, on the hoof and aid in keeping the shoe in |
^ position. Among the advantages claimed by
! the inventors are the following: A man after a j
minimum of instructiou can, with the aid of a |
hammer or even a stone; aftix this shoe in about I
three minutes, as against the fifteen or tweutv '
minutes at present needed: the shoe allows of i
full expansion of the hoof; it permits the natu
r.tl growth of the frog, thus providing a remedy .
against slipping or jarring; it is as durable and j
as light as. while it is cheaper than, the ordi- i
nary shoe. The extensive practical trials to j
which this system has been subjected have
given satisfactory results.
How a Pawnbroker Came Out.
From the rhicaffo Tribuue.
'-I would like to see some diamond rings,"
said a foppish young man with a dainty man
ner of speech, entering a three-ball emporium
on Halsted street, near Taylor.
"You would, eh?" said Mark, the proprietor,
to himself, m he traveled along his counter
toward the threatening-to-be customer; "but
I bet me dot feller ish no good." and aloud, in
the most genial manner, "Anyding you vant,
air. yon shall haf."
The young man qoickly chose a ring with a
i 3-carat' single stone of prime light, and re
quested that it be kept apart for him. as he
had no money at that moment. Marx cleared
away the rings, whea the young man. suddenly
leaning over the counter, indicated a spot unon
the shelf where the chosen ring should be left
until hi* return. In the movement his elbow
went through the glass top of the show-case.
"Upon my word," cried be, "that was a moat
awkward trick. I do not know what to say.
You may add the damage to the price of the
T>er glass cost only tree dollar." said Marx,
with some ill grace. "Vhy don't you pay it
"Why, sir, I am ont of fande," was the dis
tressful protest.
-Yon will egsense me if I correct yon."
blandly replied the broker, and. bending over
the case, be seized the protruding end of a *J0
bill and plucked it from the young man's vest
pocket. *'
The purchaser was covered with confusion,
and averred that he knew not that he had the
money. He was ready, however, to have the
cost of the glass deducted.
When Marx deposited that evening the bank
clerk returned to him a fA bill oh which he
had dertly imprinted in large violet letters the
condemning word, "Counterfeit."

Ab everything associated. even indirectly,
with the memory of George Washington ap
paara to command a continually increasing in
tereat, the writer hereof haying been in early
life intimately associated with the snbject of
this sketch, assumes that the facts herein set
forth, and especially those relating to the death
of Col. Washington, which, it is believed, hare
never heretofore been properly presented to
the public, may prove of interest as a matter
of history. The Mount Vernon estate, the
home of Washington, was devised by Augustine
Washington, who died in Stafford county, Va..
April l'i, 1743, to Lawrence, the second son by
his first wife. Jane Butler. Lawrence Wash
ington. who gave the name of Mount Vernon to
the estate, in honor of Admiral Vernon, or the
English navy, under whose command he served
in the expedition against Carthagena, died
in 1752, and under a proviso of his will it be

the oldest child of Augustine and bis second
wife, Mary Ball.
who died December 14. 1799, left Mt. Vernon to
his nephew Bushrod, a son of his brother John
Augustine, and an associate Justice of the Su
preme Court. Bushrod Washington died
November 26. 1829. without issue, leaving it in
turn to John Augustine Washington, a son of
his brother Corbm. John Augustine Washing

his death in June. 1832. After the death of liia
widow Mt. \ ernon became the property of his
foil, John Augustine, whose name appears at
the head of this notice.
was born May 3, 1820, at "Blakely," the resi
dence of his father, in Jefferson county, Va.,
now West Virginia. He married in February,
1842. at -Exeter," Loudon county, Va., Eleanor
Love, daughter of Wilson Carev Selden, esq.
He had issue, two sons and five "daughters, all
of whom are now living, and all married save
one daughter. He resided at Mt. Vernon until
a short time prior to the late war. and until it
passed into the possession of the '?Ladies' Mt
Vernon association." under the control of which
it is stilLheld.
On the breaking out of hostilities between
the states CoL Washington became a volunteer
aide, with the rank of colonel, on the stuff of
Gen. Rob't E. Lee. and was killed September
13. 1861, while conducting a reconnaisance on
the turnpike along Elk Water river, about 9
miles northVest of Huttonsville, Randolph
county, W. Va.
Col. Washington was a graduate of the uni
versity of Virginia, and was a man of fine
natural parts as well as a gentleman of culture,
or a warm, impulsive temperament and gener
ous. nature. In manners and hospitalitv a
veritable type of the Virginia gentleman. The
following facts connected with
were recently related to the writer by Col. J.
H. Morrow, late third regiment. Ohio volun

ments under Gen. Oeorge B. McClell .n in the
W est > lrgima campaign at the time, and in
whose arms Colonel Washington expired and
with whose permission I make this statement.

The accompanying diagram will aid in a better
understanding of the .topographical features of
the vicinity of the occurrence. The old state
turnpike road ran from Brady's toll-gate, or
Brady's gap. as the point was also designated
and, as shown on the diagram, along the val
ley. following the course of Elk Water river
and being on low ground, was subject ?o over
rrom the "??"? >n seasons of high water.
On this account a new pike bad been constructed
on higher ground, and on this new road, at
some distance below Brady's gate. General Lee
had established his headquarters. The bluffs
on the opposite side of the river from the old
road had been heavily picketed bv Federal sol
diers for several milea, extending from Col
Morrow s camp below, very nearly if not quite
up to Brady's gate. Owing to the mountain
ous character of the surrounding countrv. Gen
eral Lee was imperfectly informed of the locu
lion of the Federal forces, and in order to
obtain reliable information in this regard
directed Colonel Washington, with a detach
ment, to proceed up the new road to the forks
at or near Brady's gate and thence down the
old road, cautioning him not to venture be
yond a certain point. Washington, however
it appears, probably actuated by over zoal and
anxiety to be able to report valuable infornia- 1
tion. went beyond the point indicated. His
movements along the entire route on the old
road were, it seems, fullv observed by the
pickets, and immediately after he tinaliv started
on his return a volley was delivered from the
picket-line and
Washington wasVeex to fall
from his horse, which galloped away with the
r treating escort. He was,apparently the only
one stricken Dy the volley. Colonel Morrow
states that he was standing but a short distance
from where Washington fell, and hurried to
the spot and discovered him to be an officer of
ranu"i knelt by him and raised him so as to
enable him to recline against his breast, and
directed one of his men, standing near, and
who wore a felt hat, to run and fill it with !
water from the stream. CoL Morrow bathed
the wound d man's forehead and endeavored
to press water between his lips from a saturated
handkerchief; but he could uot swallow, as
blood Wits flowing from his mouth and nose,
and in a few moments later he was dead. The
dead officer wore a valuable ring, a piu in his
shirt bosom, and a gold wntcb and chain
Ihese Colonel Morrow removed, and also took
possession of his sword and pistols, aud ordered
a new ambulance, under his control, to be
brought at ouce from camp, in which he had
the body placed and taken to his headquarters
near bv. '
Not long after, Gen. William L. Loring. bear
ing a Bag. and accompauied by a two-horse
wagon, arrived from Gen. Lee's camp in order
to obtain possession of and remove the bodv
It was then that CoL Morrow learned the name
of the officer who had fallen, and with whom
it happened, he had been personally wall ac
quainted when connected with the steamboat
service between Washington aud Aquia creek
Gen. Loring desired to transfer the body
from the ambulance to the wagon, but Colonel
Morrow kindly insisted upon his taking the
ambulance, when Gen. Loring'a driver sprang
upon the box, taking the reins, with CoL Mor
row sitting beside him, and in this manner the
body was taken to Gen. Lee's headquarters.
The watch and chain, with ring and pin were
turned over to Gen. Loring. and later the
aword and pistols were delivered to Gen. J. J
Reynolds. U. H. A., now retired, who. at that

OockalfM la the Ih rraaclsso Argonaut
The mistakes which Americans make vbei
la England arise not so much from fault as
from ignorance. These are generally regarded
by English people with "more of sorrow than
of anger" and are treated with a sort of com
passionate good hnmor. which, whils it over
looks the fault, finds no excuse for the igno
rance. In an Englishman'* estimation every
one should know alt about England. It doee
not matter that a man or woman is a foreigner.
That isuoexcuse. Ignorantui Uyit U a plea which
can not be set up in English society by any
body any more than it can bepleadedinacourt
of law. Whoever think* differently and will
have the hardihood to contend that the con
trary is the caae doe* not know English society,
and by his contention will pfove himself one of
the class of persons whom English people would
pity. 1 do not suppose there are a people on
the face of the earth who are so crassly, so in
differently. so endearingly, so confessedly ig
norant of the social usages of other countries,
which do not conform to their own, as are the
English people. What the people of other
countries do at home in their own land is of no
interest or significance to them. The rules of
society in England are the only correct ones,
and no one has any business to act differently
tlian as they command or direct.
There is a vast army of anglomaniacs who
come to England every year, who. I am pain
fully aware, imagine that they could not make
a mistake in Eugiish society. Now, it is all
very well to assert that the characteristics of a
gentleman are the same the world over. bo
they are. No one doubte it. But the ways of
exhibiting these characteristics differ. In no
two countries are the ways identical. Perhaps,
in diplomatic life, you may find Englishmen
and Frenchmen, Russians and bpaniards. Ger
mans and Italians. Americans and Austrian*,
Japanese and Chinese, all comporting them
selves in obedience to one studied governing
code of manners and conduct, But nowhere else
will you observe it It may be that in a general
way the usages of polite society in every civil
ized country are, it not identical, very similar.
Full dress at evening entertainments is
one. Taking off your hat in the presence of a
lady is another. Returning calls, answering
nvitations, being punctual at a dinner party
and things of that sort, But for a man to sup
pose thai bt-cause he knows these general fun
dnmeutal principles of good breeding he is a
master of all the details which in each country
go to make up the social life of each, is simply
absurd. His knowledge of these general ruies
I of all countries does not intorra him of the
many subordinate regulations and customs of
England any more than it does of those of
1'ortugal or China. The Usages and customs of
English life are in many particulars as differ
ent from those which we obtain in America as
usages and customs can be.
It bus been my lortune to come in contact
with Americans in Hbgiand. both gentleman and
ladies, anglomaniacs included. 1 can candidly
say that 1 have never met anyone who passed
for any length of tune as English. '1 Uose who
did mall were very few iu number. While tlip
majority disclosed their nationality at once,
the few I mention, by a studied imitation of
English manner.speech mid accent,managed to
keep up the decepiiou for a short time. Put
the English eye and ear, doubtless thrown off
guard-by 1'oole-cut coats and Redl'ern made
gowns, and. therefore, for a space not on the
alert, soon regained their wonted keenness of
perception aud tnen the mask lull off. booucr
or later something betrayed the fraud. Aud it
was not so much in speech or acctnt, wliich I
had apparently been studied und fairly ac- !
quired under a competent coach, as in some |
decidedly American and decidedly un-English j
ucuon that the American cat was allowed |
egress from the frugne aud counterfeit English ,
1 remember some yenrs ago an American
iergymau, who. through the introduction of
.u;ual friends, was received into some of the
.ghest and best Eugllsh society. He was very
nuch liked, and was made a good deal of in
oue way or another. He did not pose as an
i.uglisliman. it is true. A seeni.ngiy uncon
querable habit of rattling his tiu.it r's, as well
as au apparently invincible inclination to say
"Why. yes," and "Why, no," on every possible
occasion, would have precluded the possibility
of any success ou his part if he had tried to do
so. And his admiration for England and things
English was unbounded, and to aland well with
and to be thougnt well of by English people,
especially witn those with whom he was asso
ciating. wan his constant aim and desire. He
was thought well of and did stand high in the
estimation of his English friends. But X am free
to confess that he would have been thought
better of and would have stood higher had be
not, when at meals, laid down his knife ou his
plate and gone on eating with his tork in his
right hand. This may seem trilling, aud no
doubt it is, but. all the same, it will give away au
American every time. At any rate, it will show
that the persou is not English. Of course, in j
saying this, I do not refer to the habits of the !
middle classes, about which I must admit my :
On another occaiion another American clergy- j
man. a well-known man in New Yorp, had been !
most hospitably entertaiued at one of the !
southern country towns by some ladies of rank ;
and position living there, and, wishing to make
some small return, he invited the ladies to tea
with him at his hotel. Upon their arrival
withiu his comfortable fire-lit sitting-room on
a chili autumnal evening, he kindly suggested:
? "Ladies, won't you remove your sacqucs?"
I was not present, so did not bear it. but I
have heard the two ladies laughing condescend- |
iugly, though good humoredly, over the poor '
fellow's benightcdness. The flaws were maqv '

place, no English gentleman i^exceptiua politi

dames were present) would ever address the
opposite sex as "ladies." it would be "Mrs.
This or That," or "Lady the other," or both
uames repeated; but never "ladies" in a bunch.
In the next place, the stilted and pedantic
"remove" would in au EngliHnmun s mouth
become "take off;" and lastly, * sacques" would
be "jackets" '1 rifling mutters again, perhaps
some people will think. Possibly they are. Vet
it is just such little drops aud grains of water
and sand of social life andcustom which make the
nngbty ocean aud pleasaut hind of the anglo
maniac's dream. It is useless for any Ameri
can to wear Poole-made coats, to carry a tightly
rolled up silk umbrella on suiiny days, to screw
a rimless eye-glass into one eye, to have his
horses' tails docked and squared, to stick cock
ades on his servants' huts, to come over aud

drive about in a four-horse drag with two
grooms to say cbawnce and dawnce andcawn't.

Fourth" mean* or who was born on February

little drops and little grains of kuowledge.
China Awakening.
From the Scottish American.
Although there is no doubt that in early ages
China was the most advanced of all nations in
art, science and genoral civilization, for cen
turiea it has in this respect been asleep, and
has been retrograding while other nations have
been rapidly advancing. Now, however, it
would appear that China has awakened from
its long stupor, and has resolved, if possible, to
take its place in the march of progress. It haa
opened its eves and perceives the great advan
tages to be derived from European civilisation,
and has thrown off the lethargy in which it has
been so long enwrapped. Instead of the Con
fucian theorizing, which has prevsiled among
the mandarins from time immemorial, schools
and collegea are being established for teaching
modern sciences aud their application to
human industries; and these institutions are
overcrowded with young men most anxious to
learn. Already the Chinese coast is provided
with what is generally conceded as the best
light-house aervioe in the world. Throughout
China thousands of milea of telegraph wires
are being erected every year, and tne construc
tion of vast railroad ayatems has commenced.
It haa also resolved to improve and enlarge its
existing network of internal water routes. But
the most promising feature of all is, imperial
legislation is assuming a liberal and progreeaive
spirit that is encouraging the industrial and
social development of the whole people.
But there is another aspect of this awaken
ing of the Celestials, and of their present ac
tivity, which is more particularly interesting
to other nations. The Chineae nation number
nearly four hundred milliona of people. A
standing army of one million men is constantly
maintained.* Now it is worthy of considera
tion what an overwhelming force it would be
if that array was only up to the modern stand
ard in drill, discipline and equipment And it
is evident that for some purpose China haa re
solved, if possible, to raise ite army np to that
standard. The army ia being equipped with
the best modern arms and drilled according to
the latest European ideas. Recently, too,
China has had great arsenals bailt, and a
navy comprising twenty-eix men-of-war and
over one hundred gunboats, all of modern de
sign. It is evident that while welcoming
China's awakening and progress in the peace
ful arts and sciences it will t>e but prudent to
keep a watchful eye on its development in the
art and soienoe of war aad preparations there

The Modern Newspaper.
From the New Haveu Register.
In answer to a caustic criticism made from
the pulpit by the Bev. Mr. Costa, of New York,
upon the policy of the Mail and Eipw in
printing a scriptural quotation in each issue,
at the head of its editorial columns, and else
where giving all the sporting news of the day,
CoL Shepard, the editor of that paper. Bars:
"I am at a loss to see how a newspaper,
^hich should be a mirror of the busy world
and all its affairs, could get along without re
porting manv of these things which it may not
approve, ana yet which do exercise very great
multitudes of our fellow-beings."
This comment is doubly interesting; first be
cause it is an admirable statement of a fact
which every editor recognizes the truth of, and
second, because it marks the passage of the
reverend colonel by the first mile stone of
newspaper experience. A newspaper is just
what tne events of the day make it Like a
mirror it reflects the doings and thoughts of
mankind. It Is called upon each day to
chronicle new* which the editor may regret
the necessity for publishing; it must criticise
individuals, whether it will or not; it must give
the news of the churches and of the police
court; it must attend bappy marriages and
mournful burials; it must catch the sunlight
and contrast it with the shadows of life; it deal*
necessarily with all conditions of men and their
cons trailed doing*. A newspaper man. Just
like any other person, derives more pleasure
from the delightful than the distressful side of
life, but bis duty compels him to face facta and
write about them, his preferenoee aside. He
leavee it to the reader to choose between the
mass of news daily served him in his paper.
He asks no one to follow him in all his
wanderings about the world. The time has
come when the intelligent reader should dis
criminate between the faithful newspaper and
the world it is constantly telling about placing
the blame for the existence of disagreeable
things where it belongs, upon the shoulders of
the world and not upon that of newspaper men,
and according the latter the conspicuous posi
tion of honor they so richly deserve. The
newspaper reflects the moral condition of the
community in which it circulates.
Bed, red roses are blowing, blowing,
Out in the beautiful Long Age,
Silver waters are softly flowing,
Birds sing clear and the winds slag tow.
And with never a thought of what oosnes after,

Filled with gladness of love and laughter.
Sailing in sunligbt aide by side.
