Donald Cameron, the senior Senator from Pennsylva nia. Although both occasions will take place at Harrisburg, one in the historic stone trad ing-poet of John Harris, the founder of the town, the property of Sunon Cameron, and the other in the Elizabethan stone mansion of the Senator, the principals in both events are well known in Washington senatorial and social life. Simon Camerou came to Washing ton in lX4o, as the successor to Jas. Buchanan, then appointed premier of the Polk cabinet. Continuing his senatorial services in his son in 1*77. with hut slight intermission* as cabinet officer and diplomatic minister, there has been a < ameron in the upper branch of Congress for forty-four yeara ? The social life of the elder and younger Camerou in Washington has always been an honor to the great commonwealth which they have so effectively represented in the Congress, the executive councils and the politics of the nation. The first sppearunce of James Donald Cameron in the official circles of the capital was as Secretary of War during the last year of the Grant administration. He then occu pied the Hue residence of Ketired Quartermas ter-General Meigs. The first Mrs. Cameron wus .His* Mary McCormick, daughter of James JicCoraiick. one of the mo?t distinguished lawyers of central Pennsylvania, und of au old family of Scotch-Irish Pres byterian settlers in the Cumberland valley of that state. Their marriage took place in 1S?*>, and Mrs. Cameron's death occurred in 1H74. or two years before Mr. Cameron entered the cabinet. The presiding lady of his house hold after his wife s death was his eldest daugh ter. Eliza Cameron, now the wife of a son of Justice Bradle/, of the Supreme Court of the United State*, and residing at Newark, N. J. The social and domestic traits of this dutiful daughter were the admiration of her father's friends. She presided over all the social gaieties and fashionable dinners of his household.

The daughters, except the vonngest. made their debut in society in Washington and contributed to the fashionable gave ties of their father's home as a Senator first in the elegant mention of the premier Frelinghuyson; during this administration the home of Sec retary Whitney and Mrs. Whitney; then in the palatial residence now occupied by the Russian legation, then in their own elegant nowly-built home, and since in the Tayloe mansion on La fayette square. The death of the maternal grandmother placed these children of the Senator inatducuce III their own right. 31119. blMTOi f-VMEB >N. The second marriage of Senator Cameron look place ilk 1978 after he had entered the Senate. Mrs. Cameron, who was Elizabeth Sherman, is the daughter of U. S. District Judge Charles Sherman, deceased, the eldest brother of Senator John Sherman, the patriarch of the public men of the capital, ana of Gen. William T. Sherman, the great strategist of the War of the Rebellion. Mrs. Cameron was born near Mau.-field. Ohio, the family seat, and after a preliminary education in the schools near her Lome finished her studies and training in accomplishments at Boston. During the fol lowing winter. 1H77. she made her entree into society from her uu< le'B house at Washington. The occasion was one of the social events of the season. 1 he commanding position of her uncle as a Senator and cabinet officer, and one of the foremost men in the choice of the republicans for President vt the I"nit? <1 States, gave the debut of Miss Sherman a national interest, under the tuteh.ge of her aunt, one of the most affubie of senator ial matrons. Miss Sher.uau enjoyed all the fashionable gayeties in the Liigliest circles of capital life. She at once became a great belle, und was admired and courted by the most dis tinguished of the land. Among her suitors was the senior Senator from Pennsylvania, a man middle age. with the prestige of a great jEinie and a iar;;e estate. Before the end of the first year of her bellehood Miss Sherman became a s. natornd bride. In years she was in her early twenties.

During .i r ?levin years of married life Mrs. Camerou b is paused every season in Washing ton. In the social gayeties of the senatorial and official circle* she has been among the most brilliant of woim u. Her uuaffected inan ner?. beauty, and kindness of heart have made Iter popular in every sphere of polite society. XASOCKBKTTA CAMKBOX. The marriage of Senator Cameron's daugh ter Margueretta to William Clark, of Newark, ?on of William Clark, the manufacturer of Clark's spool cotton, will be one of the nuptial ?vents of the year. The prospective bride, who is the fourth daughter of Senator Cam eron. is tall and beautiful. Uer education has beeu at the best schools in the country, and in addition to such accomplishment* as are ac quired by training she has the domestic tastes of ail the fetniniue members of the Cameron lamilv. The proipecttee groom is associated with Lis father in the great thread works at Newark. N. J., and with his uncle in the works at Pauley. Scotland. It is said that the income of the father of the young man is a million a year, and m his own right the son is a man of aealth. The young people met each other at the rea Id> nee of Miw Margueretta s eldest sister, Mrs. liradiey. of Newark. She had Just finished school snd made her debut at a debutante din ner at her father's borne at Washington and was paying a visit to her sister, who had been as a mother to the children after their own mother's death. At the same time she met Miss Clark, the sister of her devoted admirer. The following w niter, the senior Clark proposing a ernise among the isles of the Antilleau archipelago In b:s yacht. Miss Margueretta Cameron was oue of the party as the gu??t of Miss Clark. The cruise lasted several mouths. The younger Clark, who was also oue of the family group, continued bis attentions, and amid love inspiring surroundings, a fine yacht, the bine waters of the gulf of Mexico, balmy nirs and picturesque landscapes of the tropical shores they plighted their troth. L'poo the return of the yachting party the young lovers told of their mutual passion, and, securing the approval and bleesing of their Knts. the day of prospective union wee left le blissful uncertainty of a distant futurity. With the immemorial eagerness of love, the u.m.. car of time was shortened in its jour i>, and ihe day wse *xed at Marc/*, ut so cIom >t hud. Mr. Clark it twenty-two and Mum Cameron, hia betrothed, twenty rear* of a^e. They will spend their honeymoon in Europe, and upon their return Mr. Clark will build a palatial residence at Nearwark, and will paaa a portion of the season in Washington. The arrangement* for the wedding are still in an inchoate state. The bride-elect has not yet made her plans known in detail. The mar riage will take place at Harrisburg from the former residence of her father, now the home of her brother James. It ia not improbable that the wedding, while brilliant in the dis tinguished personages assembled and elegance in the arra.v and value of bridal gifts, will be simple in the spectacular details of the sacra mental ceremonr. It is understood that there will be no bridesmaids and probably only a best man. Senator and Mrs. Cameron will go to Harrisburg immediately after the inuugnra tion of President-elect Harrison to give their attention to the coming nuptial ceremonial and celebration. The history of the Camerons for one hun dred and flftv years it* filled with the thrilling 1 interest of episodes of war and peace. Their heroism was displayed upon the gory fields of Culloden Moor, the plains of Abraham Heights and Bull Kun. and in the stubborn contests of American politics they have shown boldness, courage, and dettwmination, the elements of successful and dinting untied leadership. 8IXOS CAMKKOJi's BIRTHDAY. In about two weeks. March 8, 1889, ex-Sena tor Simon Cameron, the present head of the family, will have entered his ninetieth year, having been born on that day in 179!). It is a remarkable fact that Donal Cameron, the great grandfather; Himon Cameron, the grandfather, and Charles Cameron, the f.itherof Simon Cam eron, or three generations, came to America at the same time, in about 1747, and settled in Donegal township, Lancaster county. Pa.. 142 years ago, where the present venerable pos sessor of the patrimonial estate of Donegal w is born tifty-two years after. Although the fourth in descent from the hero of Culloden, he is the first Cameron | born on American (oil, and bis Bon, James Donald Cameron, the set ior Senator from Pennsylvania, born in 1833, or when his ! father was forty-four years of age. is the sec ond, and his son James, about tweutv-five years of age, who resides in the paternal mansion at Harrisburg. is the third in the male line of the American Cameroon and sixth from the i soldier in the armv of the Scotch pretender. I The Cameron clan dwelt in Invernessnire,where , the Moray and Bcauly. Firths and the : Olenmore-nan-albin, the great glen of Csle | donia meet. It was in this rugged region, five I miles southeast of the present town of Inver | ness. that the Highland army of the gallant Prince Charles Edward Stuart, starving and jaded after a fruitless invasion of Euglaud. was overtaken by the English under William, the j duke of Cumberland, on April 16. 1746. at Col- j luden Moor, and met its final defeat, which ex tinguished the hopes of the house of Stuart. Two or three green trenches to this day mark ! the scene of the heat of battle, where the slain j were buried. In the Highland army of 6.000 j men of the prince was the regiment of Locheil j commanded by " Cameron, younger, of Lochiel." Among the incidents of this fateful conflict the ancient chronicles record that the intelligence of tlio advance of the duke of i Cumberland's army was first brought to Cullo- j den House, where the prince h^l taken a j position in the morning, by a ( ameron. a j lieutenant in the regiment of Loch:eL The , army having made a halt he and a party of the , prince's huntrry and exhausted soldiers having captured some provisions.after devouring them. ! took some rest. Cameron having overslept | himself, was left behind. When he awoke the , advance of the English army was upon him. i He made his escape, and conveying the infor- I nation of the enemy's, approach the Highland I army was drawn up in three lines for imme- j diate battle, instead of withdrawing to the fust- i nes^es until recruited after their long aud de moralizing pursuit. The Athol brigade and the Camerons held the right of the first line, j The Highlanders contested the advance of the English and were swept away by the heavy fire of mutchlocKs. 1 he Athols and Camerons. sword in hand, rushed upon the British, breaking their line, but, unsupported, were overwhelmed and driven buck with great slaughter. The butcheries by the English made the name of the duke of Cumberland infamous. The routed prince wandered among the Scottish wilils with a reward of jt30.000 for his capture, but finally, with a few followers, escaped to Molaix, and years afterward died in Itotne. The Clan Cameron, the special object of the sanguinary duke's cruelty, was broken up, j and the elder and younger Cameron j and their families, after the battle, sought a j refuge iu Pennsylvania. The warlike spirit of j the Camerons was again ascendant. The hero ! of Cullodbn served in the armv of Wolfe, in j 1759. participating iu the storming of the ! heights of Abraham, when Montcalm, the | French commander, fell, and was iu the purty when Wolfe, the English commander, was slain at the moment of victory, which resulted in the surrender of Quebec. The venerable Senator's grandfather on his mother's side was a German ; Huguenot, who sought an asylum from the KISS MAUY Cameron, ' atrocities incident to the religious war of con tinental Europe. He was conspicuous as an Indiau fighter, and a companion of Capt. Sam. Brady, whose name is ussociat.-d with the frontier wars of the middle colonies.* Martha Proutz, the daughter of this early border hero, became the wife of Charles Cameron and the ? mother Simon Cameron. Charles was a boy when his father settled in Donegal township and assisted on th^farm. Upon the death of his father he removed to Maytown, not far dis tant, in Lancaster county. He prospered in life. Here, on March 8. 1799. his son, Simon Cameron, was born, and here to-dav is his fa vorite seat, Donegal. The financial upturniugs in the first decade of the century having I deprived Charles Cameron of his property, he ! poied his family and all his possessions up the Susquehanna to buubury on a flat-boat. The father died a year later, when Simon was nine years of age." The family was left without means, but the mother of the little dock, a woman of great energy and courage, kept her children around her until thev were able to help themselves. Simon, at eighteen, having picked a good stock of knowledge, with itll his worldly effects in a bundle left the maternal home for south America to win his way to martial glory in the struggles of the Spanish American colonies for(, independence of Spain. Arriving at Harris burg footsore and penniless, he sought work, and found it in a printing office. His energy and intelligence soon secured him an appren ticeship as a printer. Arriving at age in 18*22. he worked at his trade in the office of Gales A Seaton, editors of the \ntioruil IiUeUi'jnu*r, but soon after returned to Harrisburg and became associated with his former friend iu the publi oation of the Harrisburg Inteltvjenorr, which beeame the organ of the democratic party, and embarked in the political struggles of the' state as a protection democrat. He married Margue retu Brewer, of a German family, which came to Pennsylvania with Conrad Wetsser, the cele brated Indian interpreter, and settled on the Tnlpehocken near the present city of Beading. In 1832. leaving Journalism, be founded the bank of Middletown, and entered even more actively into politics, and laid the foundations of his "distinguished career. In 1845 he de fen ted the Polk administration free-trade cau cus candidate for the United States Senate. In 1849 he was re-elected. In 1854. on the repeal of the Missouri compromise, he left the demo cratic partv and iu 1857 was elected Senator, defeating John W. Forney, then a democrat. In I860 he received more votes for President than Chase. The Lincoln cabinet, with Seward. | Chase and Cameron, represented the three moat formidable competitors for the nomina tion. After a few months passed in 1862 as minister to Russia he returned. He opposed the movement to impeach President Johnson. He was re-elected to the Senate in 1867. and wa* re-elected, resigning in 1877, in favor of his son James Donald, who had been Secretary of War in the Grant administration. It is the purjiose of the venerable ex-Senator to visit Washington during the Inaugural sea son as the guest of his son. oostjj. with ru ooxrrtrcnow. His life, lacking but a single decade, spans ths entire existence of the national govern ment under the Constitution. He was born in the second year of the administration of John Adams, the second President of the United States, and almost a year before George Wash aon. the first President, died. He entered tics sixty-six years ago, when James Monroe was President, and was a Senator of the United States when Polk entered the executive of hoe. Hi* oareer, therefore, has been ose of pre-eminent influence. and hw been ?? with the moat important evenUi in American history. In hk old age ex-Senator Cameron enjoy* exceptionally rigorous health. He is particularly pleased to bare the laticfaction of seeing the party, of which he waa a foremost founder and architect, once more in the as cendancy in the administration of public affairs. r !>*& K.

The recent developments in the Washington aqueduct tunnel have caused a hindrance to the completion of the whole work, which bears | some resemblance (involving a principle? although by comparison with tho more gigan tic enterprise seemingly slight?and yet of ap propriate interest Just now) to a recently-com pleted tunnel in Italy, which waa first con ceived. engineered, and the work begun up ward of eighteen hundred years ago. If we look back through a long stretch of centuries to the reign of Nero's immediate pre decessor, Claudius I, we see the grand politi cian#nd statesman. Julius Cesar, tasking his keen-sighted intellect to discover some means or preventing the occurrence of frequent famines and wasting fevers which were in his threat?ti*o the vert lite of bom*. He ascribed much of the evil he so depre cated to the existence of a lake without an outlet up among the rocky peaks and spurs of the Appenines,- 2,000 feet above the level of 'nvestigations satisfied him that couia this lake be successfully drained an area _ r|ch volcanic soil of more than 170,000 acres ould be added to the food-producing tracts or country or unsurpassed fertility, and at the j same time remove a vast amount of evil in the annihilation of these pestilential vapors, which, rising from the great surface of stagnnnt waters, were continually being wafted down over the inhabitants of the sur rounding valleys and slaying the natur ally, otherwise, hardy mountaineers with StJ^eajh ?r Poison in ratio equal, perhaps, to that of the hidden dagger which was sweep ing on its victims in the aristocratic courts of the great city. The great' scheme thus originated found ravor with the emperor, and plans for the in auguration of the work were beiug carried for ward when all the good intentions of Julius Cttsar w? re rendered of no avail in consequence 0 his sudden removal bv dagger thrusts from i bands of assassin politicians, whom, though rivals, he had loaded with benefits. Selfish greed and luxury seAned to be the only am bition to which the old Roman politicians then aspired. All projects for the good of the peo ple vanished into mists as impalpable as those THE DEADLY LAKE. At length the fears of Julius became stern I fact in the visitutiouof a famine which aroused even those besotted votaries of pleasure to the ! n~!-h needs of the time. Acain the meas- I ures which Julius had urged for the prevention K'K.h ,dlre calamity were discussed and de- > cided to be practical. A skillful and scientific nnf nnfr8"1 an one HS times has I not outdone?was engaged and commenced the ZJ ' *ccuratt of one of the grandest 1 c ot engineering of which we know any thing was the result, | The high altitude of tho lake, and higher " rr! ?f U granit? rock-encircling it; whi. h tt and, no mountain stream near into lT<T il' .""Kb ?ome valley, the waters might * t onducted. decided the engineer to bore a tunnel which should carry the waters of the laae into the nearest natural stream?the Liris?a mere wild rocky canon having many a counterpart in the rugged Sierras, which, with tortuous w av, guides its seething waters, often with a wild leap and sharp turn, a distance of ni'les, into the Mediterranean. Six thou ar,?l Mils! f \aV?,be ^e'ength of the tunnel, ; and 1.000 feet its depth below the summit of ! ,unn- wilose long extinct crater held tne wide expanse of poisonous waters. 48 BAD THEN A8 IT 18 NOW. It is well known that the accomplished and able old Roman engineer who commenced this grand work was not long permitted to continue it. for in those days?as now?contracts were eagerly sought by men anxious only to enrich thi mselves at government expense, and so nOWrexper,tUl'e- honesty, and science had to give place to cupidity and inefficiency, ine contract was obtained over many competi ors by Narcissus, the emperor's private secre *7? * free dm an who had become a threat favorite, ami attained an almost boundless in ?JVT the emperor. When he found that the Empress Messalina sought to oppose that influence he murdered her, and Btill kept himself in high favor with Claudius.

Without any means of his own, as a parasite of the emperor he was enabled to cmj/cur DBAW VAST 8CX8 FBOM THE BOMAN TBEA8TJBT, and employed 30,000 men eleven years upon this imperial undertaking. No account was ever rendered of sums of money received or paid out oil this remarkable contract, and Nar cissus died worth ?15,575,000. He adhered strictly to the original plans of the great en gineer whose name, even, has not been pre seried to us?where there was any danger of insp<4fcion, but when the depth attained ren dered inspection inconveuient, the passages were purposely narrowed, fewer air shafts and ducts allowed, all the true and solid designs, so true and scientifically made, were supplanted by work most cheaply and carelessly done. The secret of his shameful frauds and peculation was deeply hidden, buried fathoms down in the rotk.v soil of the mountains?would it ever come forth to confront his villainy? When, at length, Narcissus considered his work complete he announced to the emperor that the drainage of the lake could now commence. In the meantime Claudius hail married the infamous Agrippina and adopted hersonttero U> succeed him on the throne. He determined to hold a grand luaugural festival on this op portune occasion and rejoice the hearts of his people with a series of splendid amusements, for which purpose circuses and villas were built upon the shores and slopes of the lake the rise around the whole circuit forming a natural amphitheatre. THE EJIFEBOBS THIBST FOB BLOOD. A naval conflict had been decided upon that the waters might be well tinged with blood, as a propitiatory offering to the evil minded goddess who was supposed to preside over the lake before the tlood-gates were raised. For this purpose sufficient timber had been transported over the hills to build larre fleets of vessels which, when there constructed, were manned with nineteen thousand combat! ants?convicts?wh? were compelled to fiirht each other to the death. The hostile crews showed a decided disincli nation to engage in this gladitorial exhibition and wtien the emperor gave tfe signal for at tack one ship seemed to wait for another, and the hesitation became so great that the crowds which had gathered from most of the Italian provinces to see the spectacle gave utterance to ominous murmurs of dissatisfaction. Clau dius, also impatient for the carnage to beffin Bent messengers to the vessels with his com mands to the effect that if the crews did not quickly engage in the fight they should all be sunk to the bottom of the lake with bolts and stones. 1'rietorian guards were stationed around the ?hore to prevent the escape of any of THE DOOMED KXW. Naturally, the poor wretches preferred to die if die they must?in the excitement of warfare, and the battle began. An eye witness has transmitted to us an account of the cruel scene Braises the valor of the combatants, and adds lat when the emperor and gazing crowds were sated with carnage and the lake gleamed red with blood the combat was stayed and life and liberty granted to the survivors. After this sanguinary display the order waa given for raising the flood gates at the mouth of the tunnel, and then began the flrst outflow of the hitherto imprisoned waters. Very soon it became apparent that the gates had not been placed at a sufficient depth to allow scarce any perceptible diminution of the waters of the lake. Claudius waa filled with rage at this ob vious failure of a project on which he had lavished such enormous expenditure, while his wife. Agnppina, who had long hated the favored secretory?urged her husband to imme diate revenge. tu oummto oontbactob. Narcissus insisted that he only needed a few days' time to remedy the defect at the month of the tunnel and all would be right Hie en treaties were granted, and immediately laborers were again at work, urged on unremittingly for days and mghte. while the Emperor Claudius and his pleasure-loving conrt passed the time in one ceaseless round of wild revelry. The anxious secretory taxed his brain to invent new pleasures for his royal master and to assuage the hatred of the empress. He caused the erection of a luxurious pavilion over the reservoir which was to receive the Ant rush of the swirling flood, where, while Claudius with the empress and court were enjoying the mag nificent banquet which he had also prepared in Jhe oo?W see the excited flood toes its hastily donned white oepe in its flrst wild daah for freedom. When everything had been Made ready for this second trial another gladiatorial combat ra deemed a necessity to gratify the refined taste* of this vast assemblage of old Roman courtiers, statesmen and politicians, and on this occasion the rocky shores reoeived the bleeding, dying victims. Then again were the floodgates raised and into the tunnel surged a mighty flood, but on reaching the narrowed channel, hidden so far beneath the mountain, a mad contention for the insuffi cient passage sent the indignant waters back in such uprising fury that a whirling vortex, quickly overflowing the reservoir, wrenched away the supports of the pavilion, while Claudius and nis court barely escaped being , swallowed up by the raging flood. In the face of imminent death and unparal leled confusion Agrippina's thoughts were only of revenge upon her husband's peculant secre tary. She taxed him with treason, and nover ceased to urge his banishment until her desire was accomplished, and this was only a means to tbe final end. which she soon afterward achieved, that of his DEATH AT THE HANDS OT A HtBF.D iMMIH. The failure of a grand undertaking was com plete and Claudius retired disgusted from the scene. Soon tbe debris of broken boats and demolished stagings completely choked up the opening into the tunnel and Lake Fucinus con tinued to spread its baneful influences un heeded. Nero's reign, succeeding that of Claudius Tiberiaus, wasted Home with even a more fatal miasma of wickedness. Reign succeeded reign and once more man tried to cope with the evils presented by the lake. Trajan reopened the mouth of the tunnel. Hadrian enlarged the opening and so far reduced the waters that pretty vilns were erected bv wealthy Romans along the curving snores and flourishing plantations evolved from the rich soil, but the original evil was too deeply seated in tbe narrow channel under Mont Salviano. and it gradually closed, the waters rising until, aided by a sudden moun tain freshet, the pretty white villas and fruit ful plantations were fatally submerged. The final rum of the Roman empire left Fucinus quite forgotten in its stagnant bed high up the Appenines. 15 THE SEVENTEENTH CENTCRT the celebrated engineer, Fontana, wa com missioned to reopen the Claudian tunnel, but after a years' exploration abandoned the enter prise as hopeless. Several attempts and fail ures succeeded. In 1826 a Neopolitan officer of engineers spent nine vears in examining and endeavoring to reopen the long choked-up tun nel. but a lack of financial resources, and the necessity of a great outlay of money, rendered tbe work again impossible. Then a company was formed under the auspices of Eugli*h engineers for purchasing and reclaiming th&tand covered by the lake, bOt this scheme failed like all the others. At last in 1856 Prince Torlania?possessed of immense wealth?determined to accomplish what successive Cajsars had failed in attempt ing, and engaged the services of the most emi nent hy&aulic engineer of Europe. M. de Mon tricher. who spent one year in studying every condition of the country, and in March, 1856, THE WORK or RESTORATION was begun. After incalculabe difficulties had been surmounted the old Claudian tunnel was so widened and deepened that the lake was successfully drained, and on August 8, 1862. another festival?one in oelebratiou of a real triumph?and which differed widely in masner and spirit from the one held upon the same spot by Claudius Tiberius more than eighteen hundred years before was held. The prince occupied a pavillion which bad replaced the emperor's; mass was said, praises sung, and the sign of the cross given in benediction. Again the flood-gates were raised and the waters rtowed out unimpeded by any dishonest work. Joyful shouts resounded above the rushing of the waters from the delighted and grateful people who were to live upon the redeemedsAil. The waters rau their course during four hun dred and seventeen days, when about 14 feet of water remained in the lake. Iu Augu-t. 1N>6. the lake was again permitted to flow, and continued so until May, 1868, when the bed was empty, aud IS NOVEMI1EB, 1869. THE TUXKEL WAS FINISHED. For more than half the distance of nearly 7,000 yards, which the tunnel runs before reach ing the Liris, it is lined with hewed limestone, beautiful and solid as marble; the works above the ground being ulmost as wonderful as those beneath the mountain. The magnificicnt result obtained is an al most incalculably rich estate of about 33.000 acres added to Italy, and to Prince Torlanios' estate, which is divided into farms of about sixty acres each, with excellent farm houses and out-buildings. Churches and schools are also well supplied, and happiness, fertility, and industry abound where formerly pestilen tial influences reigned supreme. Already families of Rome are visiting the spot as a fav orite summer resort on account of the salu brity of the air and the many attractions of the fruitful garden lands nestling so charm ingly upon its high perch smong graceful hills and towering rocks. A striking object lesson to the world as con firming tbe truth of the good old adage that honesty is the best policy. Mrs. Martha C. M. Fisher. "IF I SHOULD DIK TO NIGHT." Lines Written In 1802 by Father Ryan, the Poet-Priest. To the Editor of The Evening Star: In your issue of February 6 you ask, Who wrote "Were I To Die To-night." The Rev. Father A. J. Ryan, tbe poet-priest, of Mobile, Ala., is the author. It was written in July, 1862, and I have the original copy. I will vouch for the truthfulness of this statement. Other lines have been added, and the poem claimed by other authors. Find inclosed a true copy of the original poem. Respectfully, M. A. Andrews. St. Louis, Mo. Mrs. Andrews Bends to Thk 8tar, with her letter, a copy of the original poem, as she says it was written by Father Ryan. Tbe lines are as follows: If I should die to-night. My friends would look upon my coffined face, before they laid It in Its resting place, And deem ibat death had made It almost fair; Anil laying snow-white flowers against my hair, Would smooth it down with tenderness, And fold my hands with lingering caress; Poor hands, would be so oold to-night! Oh, If I could die to-night. Perhaps my friends would call to mind Soma kindly deed the icy hand had wrought; Some gentle word the frozen lips had said; Errands on which the willing feet had sped; The memory of my selfishness and pride. My hasty words would all be put aside. And 1 should be loved and mourned to-night. Ofcl that I could die to-night, Every heart would turn once more to me, Recalling other days remorsefully. The eyes that chill me with their glance Would look upon me as of yore, perchance Would soften in the old familiar way, For Who would war with dumb, unconscious clay? So I might be forgiven of all to-nlgRt. Oh, friends, keep not your sympathy from me to-night, The way is lonely, let me feel It now; Thlnlfeently of me; I am travel-worn; My faltering feet are pierced with many a thorn; Forgive, oh, friends, forgive, I pleadl When dreamless sleep Is mine I shall not need The sympathy for which I ask to-night.

If ha sputters and flxsee do not ha anxious; soma husbands do this until they are quite done. Add a little sugar in the form of what the confectioners call kisses, but no vinegar or pepper on any ac count. Do not stick any sharp instrument in him to see if he is becoming tender. Stir gently; watch the while, last he lie too flat gad close to the kettle and become assises.

Tn proper wat to m>m a last to hopxt a HORSE?THE LAST who touches TOD OX THE IHOULDEk?DUTIES OF CtRTHl The following questions hare been selected this week by Mrs. Sherwood for consideration, as being of general interest: "Suburb" asks: "Fludin* It impossible to obtain sufflcie t time to call uiwu a friend, and wishing to end a card, bow abould it be eent, by mail or br dm* aenger?" A card sent by mail is equally respectful ai one sent by messenger. THE LADY OX HORSEBACK. "Reader" asks on which aide of the lady be should ride. also, how to help aer on her horse To help a lady on put the clasped hands under her foot while she catches the horn of the saddle. Lift her aa she Jumps. Bide on her right hand. THE COXFIDEXTIAL LVDY. "T. K." ask*: "How cm 1 teach the average Ameri can woman (not the erell-bred onet to keep her bauds j off me? It they are ttlad to sen me they catch hold of me. If thuy tell me anytnlng funny or aurprmug they eud with a grasu of my arm or shoulder. If :h?-y have a confidence tliey keep hold of me the whole tliue. What ahall I do to avoid it without giving of fense?" This evidently comes from a foreigner. It would be impossible to answer it except to say thatitisalwaysmuch more polite not to touch the person. Indiscriminate kissing among women is to be avoided. "T. B " asks: "If a lady calls on me without her hus band's card and I return it without meeting her bus baud. ahall I bow when I meet him In the street?" No. probably not, as he might not know who j you were. xrr IX THE SCHOOL. "Genre* L. A." aaya: "A gentleman meets some young Lulles In a school or class of Instruction, music itli " __ it be propei Continued about a month, to aak permission to call on one of the ladles, or to ask her to accompany him to tne theater?" It is qnite proper for him to ask leave to call, | bnt he should not ask to take her to the theater without her mother or some older friend. "Marion Meredith" aaka: "Miss F.uMlda wlahea Mi's Leila aa her maid of houorat her wedding. How should she aak her?" By calling on her and asking the favor per sonally. THE WORD "FRIEXD." "What term* should be used if lady friend and gen tleman friend are objectionable?" Simply friend. A OEXTLEMAX'S ARM. "A Constant Beader"?A lady may take the arm of a gentleman, bat for a gentleman to take the arm of a lady would be very familiar, vulgar aud objectionable walkiug "down 5th avenue. THE WEDD1SO TOUR. "E B. M." aaya: "A.young man exoected to be mar ried iu a few w-eka. Tht wedding takea place in the parlors of the bride's parent* in the pre ence of Ihe near relatives of both families. Immediately after tbe wedding breakiaat the newly married couple leave on their tour." "What should the groom wear?" Answer.?Prince Albert frock coat, colored necktie, dark gray or pearl-colored trousers, pearl-colored gloves. "The wed lug service is not to include the ring?" We know of no wedding service without a ring. "Would an emerald ring be appropriate!" No. Emeralds are unlucky, according to William Black's novel of "Three Feathers." "In making a present should one or a pair of brace let* be given?" That depends on yonr generosity. One brace let is, if handsome, enough. RECEPTIONS AND TOCXO MEN'. "Young Girl" asks: "Will you kindly inform me if, when invited to an eveuimr reception 1 can take an escort without consulting the hoxteaa previously? Also, when paying reception calls uiuat escort go with me?" No; a young girl should never take a yonng mHii to a house without permission from the hostess; nor should she go about with one to pay visits. A Press reader asks: How ahall a lady present a bucineaa letter of intro duction to a geutieuien abroad, aud how should a let ter be presented to a minister in foreign lands? Call at the legation, leave yonr letter, card and address. If your business letter is a letter of credit drive to the bankers. "L., Norristown.' asks: "Can acceptances and regrets be engraved, leaving spare for the name?" We have never seen it done. "Bachel Dean."?Send up your card. as. if the servant does not know you. she will make mistakes in the name, frequently. "Suebe."?A groom who starts immediately on his wedding tour should be married in a Prince Albert coat and dark trousers, giving himself time to slip on a traveling coat if he wishes. PRECEDE THE LADT. "Country" asks If a gentleman precede a lady through a crowd? Yes. of course. Also: "Should not people have a footman at a party to open the front door, especially if there be intricate locks?" Of course they should. THE SEAT OF HONOR. "Globe Beader."?When a gentleman and lady take a friend to the theater they gen erally give her the seat between them. As'for a clergyman's titles it would be better to say Bev. John Smith, D. D. RETCRX THE CALL. ?Tncertainty" asks: "I have a friend visiting me, and her irienas when calliutr upon her have left cards for ine. Most of than are unknown to me. Should I return their calls?" Certainly. "Inquirer."?rlt is never a gentleman's duty to escort ladies home unless the hostess should ask him to do so. "Stranger in the city" aaka: "Does an Invitation to a tea call for an acknowledgment?" No; go or leave a card. Street costume. What are tbe proi?r hours for ladies to make their calls on each other? Between 2:30 and 6 o'clock. AT THE AFTERXOOX TEA. "ACountry Qirl" aaya; "I have an invitation to a tea next week, in the evening, troin 8 to 10 should I drets as for an afternoon tea?" No. Dress in evening dress, and do not leave a card. Call next day and leave a card. The hours alter the whole thing. ??"Richard Hare."?A gentleman is always in full dress in the evening, f8r any entertain ment. Lillian asks: "If at an evening party a gentleman wishes to dauce with a lady, la It ueresaary for hiin | to obtain permission from her chaiierou?" No, not if he has been properly presented to ber by her mother or chaperon. "Debutante" aaks: "When a family recently thrown into mourning receive cards from their society a? quaiutances how eh> uld they send regret*?" By enclosing a black-edged card in a mourn ing envelope and sending it by mail. "What does 'P. P. C.' mean in a card sent by mail?" ?be further asks. Simply that your friend is ying away and "pays parting compliments." "When is it proper fog a 'person In mourning to re turn calls?" After ? year of seclusion and morning. "When a widow seuds out InvltaUons for a daugh ter's marriage, and the groom is not a resident of the same city?provided it be a cnurch wedding?would it be proper to*indoee a card, aa 'Mrs. Stanley Bursa, 70 8th avenue?" Of course It would be proper and necessary, if wedding presents are to be sent, that the ad dress be given. A BRXDEXAXD'S DUTIES. "Harrietts Howsrdson" aaks: "What the duties of bridemaida are, and where they stand at a parlor wadding." Their duties are to look pretty sad form part of a procession. They stand ia a parlor, either side of the bride, during the reception. One does not have a maid of honor and bridemaid. The maid of honor supercedes the bridemaida, She asks, furthermore: "II incase I am compelled to omit sending in vita- ! tlons to all my friends, must I send oarda with " borne?' ** \ No, that" is not necessary. Announcement cards sent by the parents are now considered j equivalent to invitations. "K. M. C." aaks: "In aandlng an invitation to a wed ?r to a young lady who ia engaged la It proper to t her fiance, be being acquainted with the family?" No; we should say not "In sending an Invitation to a lady is it omit ber husband?" No: decidedly not. This would be the mat.1 est of insult*. If the husband is invited and does not choose to go. the lady can go without1 him, or the engaged girl can go without her finance, bat both gentleman should be asked. A reader asks If "Mr." should bs affixed to a visiting I sard. Tea; it is better form. Many yonng gentlemen write asking for the etiquette necessarily observed if they take young ladiee to the theater alone. Etiqaette does not eover such oases. No young lady should go to ths theater alone witn a gentle man, or to sapper with him afterward, if she wishee to be amenable to the ralee of society; a friend, a chaperon ia abeolutely indispensable. If two young people, fellow stadeats, fallow workers, fellow artisans, chooee to go about with each other, it may be all right, bat It is not etiqaette; nor is it possible to answer theee questions, which.in their very beginning, throw away what Is the primal role ia good eociety; that young ladies are to bo protected It is said in Indianapolis that a i has left there tar Wsslington to srteet CoL W.

In eating it every particle of the akin ihould be removed from the sections of the pulp, a* the inner white akin ia very bitter and quite unwholesome. Mast or the So-called cheap cut* of meat are preferable. For instance, the shoulder of mutton ia much more dclioate than the leg. and, as few persons know, the price 1* low. The English, who of all people know what good tuutton is. always give the leg to the house hold and save the ahoulder for guesta or first table. A Xoteltt n?

You can tell when it is done by , trying it in cold water. Pull as if molasses j caudy; have a dish near by with some vanilla i in it. and work it enough to flavor it as you pull; put it in a cold room, and the next day j you will have delicious candy. J Chocolate Cbeak*.?Two cup* of sugar, one cup of water, one and a half tablespoonful* of corn starch, one teaspoonful vanilla; mix all except the vanilla. Let it boil from five to eiRht minutes, stirring all the time; take it off and stir until it comes to a cream; when neartv sinooth add vanilla and make into balla. Mix half pound chocolate, but do not add water. Koll the balla in it while warm. Is Cookiso Oatmeal or cracked wheat, if the meal is put into a doable boiler and salt added to the water in the outer receptacle, the food will be much improved in taste, the reason be ing undoubtedly because the meal is better cooked by thia process. As salted water does not boil at ao low a temperature aa unaalted. therefore the meal is subjected to a greater heat, and is proportionately better cooked and much improved thereby. llow to Dissolve Soda.?It ia better always to dissolve soda in a very little?one or two tablespoonfuls of boiling water. Firat, boil ing water dissolves it more quickly; second, the water being clear or transparent, one can see that the soda is thoroughlv dissolved, while, if you add it to milk, which, of course, must be sour, or you would not be using soda with it, fermentation takes place at once, thereby destroying all opportunities for seeing whether or not the soda ia thoroughly dis solved. Pbfue Creak Pie.-Stew the prunes in aa little water as possible. Strain through a aeive, and to a cup of fruit add one cup oi thin cream and the yelks of two eggs well beaten with one third of a cup of sugnr. Whin the whites sep arately. and stir in lightly with a flavoring of pine-apple. Have the plate already lined with crust; pour in and bake as quickly as pos.-ible without burning. When done, spread over the top the white of an egg beaten gradually with pulverized sugar, and flavored likewise with pine-apple. White Latee Case.?Beat to a cream one half cup of butter and two cups of pulverised sugar, and oue-half cup ot sweet milk, two and a half cupa of flour sifted with two and a half teaspoons of baking-powder, the white* of eight eggs; bake in layers and put together with thin icing, boil a half teacup of water aud three teacups of augar till thick, pour thia slowly over the well-beaten whites of three eggs and beat all together till cool, aud lumt before pntting on each layer. Sprinkle each layer with grated cocoanut. To P&esebve Orange Peel.?Soak the peel in strong salt water nine day*, changing the water every three days; then dry on a cloth or sieve, simmer till transparent in a syrup made by boiling together one quart of water aud one pound of whit? augar. Ihen make a rich svrup of sugar, adding just enough water to the sugar to dissolve it. and when it is boiling throw in the peels and stir them constantly till all the sugar u candied around them. Dry them thoroughly in a warm oven and put away for use. None or THE Household Abtw are more ideal than those which relate to table napery. Fortu nately faahiou sometimes condescend* to tha ideal, and at present it preacribe* minute atten tion to table linen. There ia a tendency now toward decoration that offers a wide fleld for the amateur embroiderer, and. next to an altar cloth or a baby'a frock, perhaps there ia uo work that better become* a woman's leisure hours. The preeeut mode of covering table* with colored cloth* stintulatea the embroiderer, by allowing her work to tell ao finely. Sweet Potato CacxjUETTEa.? Put them through press?throe ahakea pepper make a dash?half teaspoonfuL (She doesn't aay what, though I doubt not she know*.) Five aweet potatoes, and along the margin I read "potatoes a (a maitre d'hote parsley sprinkled between layer*." Wa cannot make much use of such directions to produce the perfectly browned outside and appetizing inside of the croquettes or other dish of Irish potatoes; but these are potent cabalistic reminders to the jotter-down of theae haaty notes that will sharpen her memory many a long day hence. Celebt Sour.?Take four stalks of celery, wash it well, par* off the green Waves, cat it In email pieoee, pat H into a saucepan with two tablespoonfuls of butter, and let simmer for five minutes; dilute it with two quarts of boiling milk; add salt, pepper, nutmeg and a little augar, and two cupfulsof "Cerealine;" stir and boil slowly for oae-half hour; preee it through a sieve; return it to the aauce-pan, and boil again; finish with a liaison of four egg yelks. one cupful of cream, two spoonfuls of batter, one-half teeapoonfoi of copped parsley, mix well on the fire without boiiiug, season to salt the teste, and serve with small squares of bread fried in batter.
