T II E GAL LA U 1> THE CiALLAUDET STATUE. A Memorial to t>?* Erected by Deaf Mute) In This City. 4 CONVENTION IN WHICH SILENCE WILL REION? HONOK* TO FX PAID TO THE MF.MOBY OP THE X\N WHO OWE A VOICE TO THE DCMB THE riasr axebii as SC?o?>L fob the deaf. A novel convention will be held hero next mouth?a convention in which silence will reign. This will be ft national convention of deaf mutes. and the event will be signalized by the unveiling of the statue of the late Rev. Thomas H. Gallaudet, LL. P., founder of deaf mute education in America, to be erected on the lawn at Kendall Green. The educated deaf mutes have held two or three national conven tions. The last was held in New York four years ago. At that convention it was Toted with a great deal of enthusiasm to raise a fund sufficient to erect a statue of Thomas H. Gallau det, whose name ia held in grateful remem brance by every deaf mute in America who has enjoyed the advantages of education made possible to the? by the philanthropic and zealous efforts of Mr. Gallaudet in the early years of the century. It was proposed to erect this monument by raising money in ail parts of the country. CONTRACTING FOB THfc STATTE. A committee was organized and contribution* solicited from deaf mutes and their friends. The chairman of the committee was Theodore A. Froelich, of New York city, a lithographer or considerable reputation, au.l the treasurer of i the fund was Prof. Amos. G. Draper, of the National Deaf Mate college of this city. The ( eff >rts of these officers, seconded by tho?e of many other persons all over the country, have been so successful that between 412.000 and 913.000 have been raised, sufficient to pay all the expenses of executing the statue, preparing pedestal, and erecting it in the college grounds at Kendall Green. Two years ago a sufficient aum was raised to warrant entering into a con tract for the statue, and the commission was given to Daniel C. French, the sculptor of Concord, well known in this city, not only per sonally. but also through many of his works, the most recent of which is the statue of Lewis ? ass. lately placed in Statuary hall at the capi tol. bv the state of Michigan. The statue will sooa be brought from Mr. French's studio and PLACED ON ITS PEDESTAL at Kendall Green. It will be unveiled June 26. when the national convention of deaf mutes will assemble. It is expected that from 300 to 500 deaf mutes, representing all parts of the country, wiil attend the convention. The presi dent of the last convention wis Mr. E. A. Hodg Bon. the editor and publisher of the "Deaf Mutes" Journal." a paper published at the New York institution for the de?f. and widely circu lated throughout the country among deaf mutes and their friends. The convention will remain in session three days. Its proceedings will be conducted in the sign langnage. as only deaf mutes are Members. These conventions discuss many subjects in the interest of d^af mutes? their education, their social relations, their oc cupations after leaving school, and anything that may he toundto have a tearing upon their welfare. _ THE DEMON. The accompanying cut gives a good repre sentation of the htatue to be erected June 26. The sculptor, who in his work had the co-opera t:on of the members of Dr. Gallaudet's family, has succeeded in produ.'iug not only a hand #ome and effective design, but what is regarded as a faithful portrait of Dr. Gallaudet at the aire of thirty, which was his age in 1?17, at the tnue of the establishment of the first school tor deaf mutes in this country.

Thomas II. Gallaudet. LL. D., estab lished the lir-t actual school for the deaf in America. This event, that has proved of so mneh importance, not only to the deaf, but NOTIHNCs like praise. Many a Child Is Heart Hungry for a Word of Encouragement. From Good Words. Parents are too often slow to see the mo tive of their children's kindest actions. A little fellow has been reading of some young hero who helped his father and mother in all sorts of ways; and after racking his brains to thiuk how he, too. can help, he re members that he can fetc h his father's slippers, and take his boots away and put them in the proper place. Without saying a word to anybody, when evening comes he does it. but the father is so occupied that he notices not what the boy has done. The little fellow hopes on, thinking that when he goes to bed his father will say how pleased he was to see Charley so willing to help; but not a word ia uttered, and the boy goes up to bed with a shoking feeling in his throat, and gays his prayers by the bedside with a sadness Very real lu tils heart. ... Parents often comolain of children not being So ready to help as they should be. the fault la With the parents, who have not known how to tvoke feelings with which the heart of every child is richly stored. All words of approval are helpful and encouraging. In a large family there have been days of anxiety and care. Hie enle?t daughter by her skill in teaching has earned a Utt'e extra money, and without a word to anyone she lays nearly all of it out in buying things that are much needed in the house. W hat joy fills her heart when a fond mother takes her aside, and with emotion that cannot be concealed says how thankful she is tor such considerate kindness, and murmurs: "I don't know what we should do without you. darling." My friends, do not he so chary of these words of encouragement. Miss Cropsey?"I understand that Mr. Blen ?erhasset over there u one of your hardest riders." Mr. Burke?"He ought to be, anyway.

I also to the cotintry as a whole, for it has re sulted in giving to it hundreds of useful citi zens who might otherwise have been left in an j extremely helpless and pitiable condition, was I due. in large measure, to the interest taken by | the Rev. Mr. Gallaud< t in the little deaf-mute 1 daughter of Dr. Mason F. Cogswell, of Hert ford. This little tjirl. Alice Cogswell. is the i one represented in the statue. In 1*14 Dr. I < la Hamlet had just graduated from the Andover ! Theological seminary and intended to enter | the Congregational ministry. He devoted con siderable of his loisnre during the winter of i 1*14-'15 to tho instruction of little Alice, and succeeded, by path rit effort, in imparting to her a knowledge of many simple words and sentences. This Achievement leu Dr. Cogswell to consider the idea of the establishment of a school for the deaf in Hartford, and a number of the citizens of the town were called together by him to consider the matter. As a result funds were raised to send a person to Europe to acquire tho art of teat-lung deaf mutes. Dr. Gallaudet was urged to take this mission, and after some hesitation accepted, and henceforth his life was consecrated to the work with which his name is identified. He went first to England, but not being successful in his efforts to obtain the necessary training th'-re, he proceeded to France, where he was cordially received by the Abbe Sicard, the director of the institution for deaf mutes in 1'aris. The Abbe Sicard was an associate and punil of the Abbe L'E'pee. and with him had studied out a sign language by which d< af mutes conid learn to talk with others. After acquainting himself with the methods pursued in the Pari* institu tion. l>r. Gallaudet returned to Hartford in Augu?t, 1316. THE FIRST SCHOOL. In the following April, funds having been raised for the purpose, the school was opened. A grant of ?3,000 in aid of the n?w institution was made by the legislature of Connecticut, and during the winter of lsss-li) Congress made a grant of a township of laud to the insti tution. The sale of tins land yieldt d a fund of i :nore than f 'HIO.0 >0. The institution thus es- i tablished. and which has since continued in successful existence, honored as the mother school. remained under l>r. Gallaudet's man aging nt for fourteen vtars. By it more than '.i.UOO children have Wen educated, and its teachers have been called upon to organize and take charge of scho Is in various parts of the country. From this school, opened under the wi-e guidance of Dr. Gallaudet, have Mining ail the fine institutions for the deaf in the country. There aro uow nearly si\t> scnool* of tins character in Amer ica. Statistics show that in no country in the world has t.c- education of the deaf been so well provided fur as in t'ie United States. Dr. Gallaudet resigned the direction of the school in Hartford in lsJ0 on account of impaired health, and some years later became chaplain of the Connecticut Insane asylum. He. how ever. all through his life, which ended in 1*51. took the deepest interest in the education of the deaf. I??? edited tho ''American Annals of the Deaf and Dumb." DO. (lAI.I,ArnET'fl so*. The name of Gallaudet continues to be asso ciated with the work of educating deaf mutes in the persons of the sons of Itev. Thos. H. Gallaudet. Rev. Thos. Gallaudet, the older son. after assisting in the Hartford school, was engaged for fifteen veurs as a professor in the New York institution. Having been orda.nid to the Episcopal ministry he founded, iu 1*52, St. Ann's church for deaf mutes in New York, and hits since then been the rector of that church. Through his efforts services for deaf mutes have been established iu several other cities. Rev. Thos. H. Gallaudet founded the first school for deaf mutes, and his son. Dr. Edw. M. Gallaudet, founded and developed the first institution for the higher education of the deaf?the National Deaf Mute college in this city. After two years' experience as un instructor in the Hartford school he was. in ls07, made principal of the Columbia institu tion for the deaf and dumb, in this city, an institution which came into existence chiefly through the munificence of the late Amos Kendall. In lseil the National Deaf Mute col lege. which had grown out of Dr. Gallaudet's (Itorts. was faunued by Congress, and Dr. Gal laudet became its president, an office he has ever b,nee filled. It is on the lawn iu front of the college building that the statue of the revert d 1 n-unas H. Gallaudet w ill be erected. THK DOMKSTIC S1IAKSPKARK. Home and Its Pleasures Thoroughly Ap preciated by the Kuril. From the Cornhill Magazine. Domestic in all his habits and inclinations Shakspeare undoubtedly was; the word "home" had a witchery which wag irresintible to him and anchored to the ''haven where he would be," in spite of the contamination of "the Jiobentianism" that surrounded him in Londou during his enforced absence from the "home" of his youth and age. The loves of husband and wife are always sacred to him; even the wanton Cleopatra realizes that at length? Husband. 1 come; Now to that name uiy couratfe prove my title! Whatever may have been his errors, his fail ings, his flirtations with Mistress Flittou or any one else, they are not inconsistent with that true b isis of dome-die affection which he ever reiterates, and illustrated nobly himself by his calm retirement at the last amid his family. He must have been a domestic man in the best sense of the word who penned that ex quisite description of the careful housewife in bonnet cxliii: ho. u ? csreful housewife runs to catch One of lier leatherM creatures broke away, 8et?

This is not an inappropriate digression from the drama whose one redeeming touch is do mestic love, where Bhakspeare seems to have tried how far he could plunge a couple into the basest of crimes without with drawing, if not our secret sympathies, at least our pity for them; aud the more we look into the slight basis on which he built the most powerfully finished of all his feminine characters, the more we are struck with his earnest reverence and belief in the nobility inherent in a true wife. Lady Mac beth has the grandest entrance, the most ap palling exit, and creates the most forcible im pression in the fewest lines of any of his first class characters. Rebuking s Rival's Pretension*. From the Jamestown. Dakota, Alert. It is reported that Devil's Lake city is push ing its base ball club to the front, and is talking about gaining the North Dakota pennant.

The Wonderful Work of the Modest Street Car. A R IT All OF THE LOCOMOTIVE?THE STREET CAS SEBVICE or Washington?seventy-nine times AEOCND THE OLOBE?STREET CAE SEASONS? DEAD-BEATS?THE MONET-MAEINO PASSES (1KB. For centuries it has been tradition in En gland that no one ever saw a dead donkey, and daring the earlier portion of the War of the Rebellion infantry and artillery were wont to poke fun at the mounted arm of the service by saying that no one ever saw a dead cavalry man. Yet there have been and still are in | existence persons whose eyes have beheld the lightheeled jackass when he had kicked his last kick, and many a sorrowing heart can bear testimony to the mournful fact that the de vouring demon. redhanded War, gathered in j a more than fair proportion of the gallant men J who fought with the carbine and saber during j the sanguinary internecine strife which deluged : the laud with human blood aud filled thousands ; of homes with broken hearts. But did you ever see a worn-out. irreparable ? "bobtail"' ear? Did you ever catch yourself wondering how long a street-car runs before it j can fairly be regarded as disabled? There are \ nnv number of those much-execrated vehicles j in thif. city that have run fully 500 000 miles and are yet in fair condition?more than twenty times around the earth at its greatest circum- j ference and yet ready to go out again. Heady i to carry anyihiug. from a driver and the never- 1 absent fare-box up to a load of from fifty to | seventy-five able-bodied individuals. Heady j with that mysterious street-oar property?in visible expansion?which always jnsists that there is room for "one more." It would be difficult to find two vehicles whose rates of speed vary more tlmn the passenger locomotive and the "bobtail" car. yet the swift dying iron hors'i performs but little more duty, covers but little more ground in n day than his humble comp?-itor. It is the old fable of the hare mid tin tortoise over again. The giant engine runs about liK) miles in every twenty four hours mid then rests for the remainder of the day; the little car rolls out from under its | shed jitst as the first streaks of gray dawn ap p nr above the horizon, and it keeps on rolling I until its wheels have revolved over St i miles of street-railroad track. That is its day's work, tin extraordinary occasions it may do mor<\ but. as n rule, the company is satisfied when it gets 'JO miles out of it daily. OEOWTH or THE STREET-CAR TRAFFIC. How the street-car traffic in this city has grown since the eastern and western extremes of the city were linked together in 18&!! One road alone has gri lirone I the streets until now it has 3ii miles of double track where tiifeen years ago 5 miles was its limit. The total mile 1 age covered by its cars last year figured up 1.*>38.455 miles, representing a grand excursion of more than sev.-nty-nine times around the world. And then the number of passengers on that nme road during 1888; fully thirty-two j rides each for every man, woman, and child in the District of Columbia. People who want to patronizo street cars in this city ought to be glad thev live here, for they do not have to pay as much for the privi lege as they would in many other cities. Not only has the single fare been uniformly fixed at five cents and nearly all transfers made free, but the companies are a unit in selling six tick- i ets for twenty-five cents. The latter privilege means more than most folks would imagine. I Ihe saving to the public is more than ? 140,000 annually, but the loss to the companies is not | correspondingly great because the majority of people who have tickets in their pockets will ride instead of walking, as they would do if they had to pay out a nickel every time they boarded a car. STREET CAB SEASONS. "What is your busiest season?" aslced a Star reporter a day or two since of one of the most prominent street-car officials in town. "Just opening up," said he; "summer time." "Why is it that more people ride in summer, whuii the weather, as a rule, is good than do in winter, when it is frequently bad?" corkscrewed the reporter. "Because fewer people stay indoors in spring and summer time. The ladies are out shopping nearly every day in the week; there are any ' number of excursion and pic-nic parties, and 1 lastly, but by no means least, there is the heat. Old Sol brings us any number of passengers. Many a man who would trudge home through a snowstorm, or right in the teeth of a gale of wind, is only too glad to avail himself of a street-car when the mercury is climbing toward the roof. Your collar will wilt anyhow, but if you ride you will save some of your stock of "perspiration until the noEt day." "Are there any particular days on which you do more business than on others?" "Oh, yes;' was the reply. "They come with a never-failing regularity. The "two busiest days in the month are those on which the gov ernment pays its employes?the 1st aud the 15th. Then all the employes, their wives and chil dren, aud their sisters and their cousins and their aunts iro shopping. Tuesdays, Thursdays, aud Saturdays are always marked' by a heavier traffic than other days in the week, because they are market davs. People seem to be afraid to ride on Friday; the travel on that day is more than one-fourth less than on any other day in the week. Then we have busy periods in each day?from 8 to 10 and from 4 to 6. The rush is especially vigorous at about 8:30 and 4, for ev erybody wants to get on the first car that comes along." BEATING THE BOAD. The ingenuity which some people display in '?beating" the car companies out of their fares is extraordinary, and the talent exerted to steal a nickel by saving it would make the petty pilferers rich if it was only properly used. Few classes of busy mankind travel more than reporters, and they see some strange tricks played by apparently respectable people. There is in this city a woman with an income which is almost sufficient to entitle her to be called wealthy, and yet she delights in not only cheating the company, but bullying the con ductor. She will enter a car, and when the conductor comes for her fare she will give him a nickel, lie will deposit it in his pocket and register it. In a minute or so she will begin to hdgct around aud look uneasily at the conduc tor, aud before another minute has gone by she will call him to her and, in a disagreeably loud voice, ask him why he doesn't give her her change. He, of course, says she was not entitled to any change, and then she insists that she gave him a quar ter, and threatens to report him if. he does not at once hand over '20 cents. What cau he do but comply with her request, morti fying as it is? Every passenger in the car re gards the conductor as a thief of the first water, and the conductor knows just what they thiuk of him. Inquiry at the office of the rail road upon the line of which this woman lives developed the fact that she had played the same game upon a number of conductors and hit the same man twice within a week. Now every man on the force has at least one eye on her, and the next time she tries that game there will be immediate trouble, with prosecu tion thereafter by the company. The people who "beat" the bob-tail cars do it when tney are crowded. They generally man age to squeeze up near the front and they drop fares in. for other people, aud listen, without apparent concern or emotion, to the tinkling of the fare-belL THE MONET-MAKING PASSENGER. Then there is the money-making passenger. The company's employes hate him more thor oughly than they do the dishonest passenger. He, too. perches up near the box of a "bob tail" and to him the passengers pass their fares. Three out of five will give him a money fare, but the cash never tinkles down the brassy or glassy slopes into the receiver. He has tickets, and he uses them to advantage. Give him 10 cents with which to pay two fares and he will drop two tickets in the box, while your dime will slide into his pocket. He is generally on the cars when the crowds are goinK to the theaters, and it is a poor night for him when he caunot ride free and in addition to that luxury make enough to buy a quart of peauuts with which to solace himself as he watehes the stage from the lofty altitude of the gallery. TUUlBLES or THE TBANSEER AGENTS. The transfer agents have their troubles, too, and in spite of their experience and their best efforts the "beat" continues to exercise his or her calling. It is quite common for men and women to work themselves into the crowd which can generally be found at a transfer cor ner, and to ask for a transfer with an unsur passable effrontery. Sometimes they are caught, but the public never sympathizes with the oatcher. It always thinks that the company is trying to abridge somebody's rights, and it talks for twenty-four hours afterward abont the soullessness of corporations. Very frequently people try to pas* off old transfers upon con ductors and drivers, and they meet all remon strances by insisting that the error, If there is oue, is with the company's employ* at the transfer. the hor DAmnra nxcx (practised as frequently by women as by men) Is becoming somewhat stale now, and the oper ator has to be clever to do it successfully. It consists in Jumping on, say, a south-bound 8th street car at F street, lust as it stops. They always get on on the side farthest away from the transfer agent The crowd gete out. and just as the last one ia getting off the ttickster, ?till on the platform, says to the conductor: "Doe? this car go to Georgetown?" The con ductor, of course, says no, and then the petty criminal Jump* off?on the wegt tide?marches right up to the agent, and is rewarded with a transfer, nnlem. perchance, the conductor sees the acherae, and then all the labor is lost. The agent says. "No transfer." and the conductor goes on hi* war chuckling at having "upset that fellow's apple-cart," Occasionally a criminal repents. Only a few days since there was received at the office of one of the companies a brief note, in which was inclosed fifteen cents?a conscience contribu tion, the sender having fradnlently obtained three transfers at different times. It is difficult to believe that there are people, and lots of them, iu this city who will stoop to such small bnsiness as these 5-cent robbers are daily engaged in, but that they do exist is a fact beyond dispute. HOSE8T EMPLOYES. In striking contrast with this petty dishon esty is the general uprightness of the railroad employes. An immense amount of valuable stuff is left in the cars through carelessness or accident and the tinders, if they are in the em ploy of the road, never fail to report the matter at headquarters. One over-wealthy individual lett ?1.400 in a car not long ago and wim so glad when it was returned to hiiu that he forgot to reward the conductor. Five hundred dollars' worth of diamonds were dropped by a young lady and she recovered them in a few hours because the conductor had turned them in. No reward in that case either. A woman lift 5300 in a car and when it was returned to her she begged the conductor to accept 25 cents. The tinder of ?150 gut nothing but the man who fouud t'2.50, lost by a little girl, had *1 left for him at the office by the grateful child. THE ODDITIES LEFT in the cars rnako a surprising collection. Gloves, poeket'oooks. bustles, fans, bracelets, bangles, lunch baskets, umbrellas, canes, gar den tools, pocket knives, valises, books, card cases. n?'W underclothing, boxes of toothpicks, skipping-ropes, and a thousand and one such things. The greatest ' find'' of all was a babv, which an excited woman left in a car. She was afraid she would not be able to make connec tion at a transfer, and when the cur reached its regular stopping place she left her child on the seat and rushed to catch the intersecting car. which was just starting away, before she hail traveled half a.square she missed the baby, and then there was a scene. She got her baby back. Nowhere in this or in any other country are the street railway employes more obliging and trustworthy than those in this city. They are models of patience and manliness, and the peo ple of Washington don't appreciate them as they ought to. ? CS* Fair dealing has always been tha i motto of The Evknino Stab. "A dollar's I worth in return for every dollar received" is I the principlo upon which its business is con i ducted. Advertisers usually get from ten to one hundred dolla/s for every one invested in its advertising c<yiumns. FEMALE DItL'U CLERKS. They Are Employed In Some Cities, but not Here. SOME OF THE QUALITIES WHICH THEY POSSESS THAT HEEM TO FIT THEM FOK THE PKOFESSIOX AND SOME OF THE OBSTACLES WHICH APPEAR TO BE A BAB TO THEIR SUCCESS. "Why don't you employ female drug clerks?" asked a Stau reporter of a druggist the other day. "That has been tried in some cities," wag the reply, "and has worked very well; but some how female drug clerks have not yet become a fixture in Washington. I never had but one application for a position by a woman, and she was a graduate of a Chicago college of phar macy. I didn't employ her, not because I had any objection to taking a female clerk, but be cause I had no vacancy. I don't know of but one druggist in the city who lias employed a woman behind his counter, and sho was at the Boda fountain." "Is she still there?" naked the reporter, thinking that with the advent of warm weather the 8od"i fountain was fully ripe. "No. I don't think sho was a success. I've no doubt sho atteuded to her duties, but you know men are peculiar. Some like to kick and swear at the clerk, and they can't do that at a woman. I've had them comu in here, order some particular tipple of soda, and I would draw it just as I thought would please then). They would feel a little out of sorts, and per haps I would put a little too much syrup in, and them they would rip out an oath and want to know why I made rt so sweet. Well, that didn't bother me in the least, for I knew they would come back the next day all calm and se rene. But they couldn't do that to a woman." "Hut the regular business of compounding prescriptions," said the reporter. "Can't a woman do that as well as a man?" "I see no reason why she shouldn't. She is quick and apt to acquire knowledge, she has a good memory, is careful in making her meas ures, and can certainly mix the pills, powders or solutions that may be ordered. A woman, too, is naturally neat and would be of value so far as the fancy articles usually for sale in a drug store goes. Hut don't you know a drug clerk's life is an awful hard one? I stay in this store from 9 o'clock in the morning until after midnight, and I am on my feet nearly all the time. Now. that would be very wearing on a woman, and I doubt if many of'them have the physical endurance to stand such a tour of duty day iu and day out right through the year. Then again, there is an uncomfortable amount of hard work in handling a big pestle and mortar, grinding up some material for an infusion or to make an impalpable powder. That takes muscle, for I've done lots of it. Generally you have plenty of time to do this grinding, but sometimes you must do it in a hurry, and there's where a woman would be at a disadvantage," "Do you know whether any women have ever gone through the pharmaceutical college here?" "I think not, though I am not certain. I believe there were two who applied for ad mission, and who studied for a short time and then abandoned it. I know there are two or three ladies in this city, the wives of druggists, who are often seen behind the counter in their husband's store, and who wait upon customers. That is all right for a woman to ao what she can to help her husband. One of these ladies I am told is a regular graduate of a college of pharmacy, and fully competent to put up pre scriptions. Whether she does or does not I am unable to say." "Don't you think the time wjll cbme when thero will be female drug clerks in Washing ton?" 6 "I have no doubt of it. I am not opposed to employing them mj-self and I have only given you some of the obstacles which seem to stand in the way of their success in this business, as employes. I have no doubt that many women if they should graduate in pharmacy could manage a drug store as successfully as a man more so than a good many men?but then she would have a male clerk and don't you forget "Why so?" "Because she would put more confidence in a mail than she would in one of her own sex. That's the way with women. But there is one other difficulty that stands in the way of a woman's success as a drug clerk. By a great many people we are considered in the liglit of a physician, and men and women too consult us just the same as they would a regular doctor. 1 dou't mean ask our advice and expect to get genuine professional trea ment without pay, for no druggist will interfere with regular medical practitioners to that extent; but thev will talk matters over with us even when they come with a prescription, no matter how deli cate the case may be, and they wouldn't do that with a woman clerk. The majority of women have not as much confidence in a female as in a male physician, even in regard to their own eculiar ailments. I don't know that this should e so, but it is, and you see how it would operate against a female drug clerk so far as her own sex is concerned, while men, of course, would not consult her at all. All these obsta cles may be removed in time, and we may have many female drug clerks, but it will not be |Uu year." How To Hetid a Jury. From the New York Times. Officials in criminal eourts' who take the trouble to make a study of juron can usually tell just what sort of a verdict a Jury will give as soon as it* member* return after deliberat ing npon a case. There is always something in their faces which indicates to tha experienced eye whether the verdict is guilty or not guilty "This man is going to be acquitted, sure?' said an old court officer in general sessions as a jury came in with a verdict in an important case a few days ago. "You see, about every man in the box turned his faoe to the defendant as soon as he took his seat That's always a sure sign. I never knew it to fail. When the ver dict is for conviction the jurors invariably keep their eyes on the judge or on the ceiling. Members of a convicting jury often seem to find it very difficult to look upon the prisoner, even when the elerk instructs them to do so. I suppose the explanation of it is that with most people it is a hard matter to inflict p?"< even on a guilty man." SOME CRUMBS Of CULTURE. The Doings of Fashionable and Work ing People of lioeton.

I'pon arriving at" her resi- ' dence she would exchange her calico dress for ' an elaborate demi-toiletto, going through the same performance on the morrow, and so on for each of the forty days. This is the Woman who is said to own the finest jewels in Boston. It was she who wished to appearat the artists festival, a Week or so a^o. accompanied by a live panther. 1'reviously her notion had been to wear a costume the train of which must be supported t v twelve gentlemen clad in absolutely nothing but a goat skin apiece. Unfortunately, none of the men would Consent j to serve in such a guise, and thus her project fell through. It was a friend of her's, by the way. who announced her own intention to ap pear at the festival in the character of Venus, I'.nd. inasmuch as the was known to pride her self upon her repute as the fastest girl in society here, much apprehension was felt as to the limii of realism sue would fix in assuming the part. There was a general feeling of relief when it was learned that a severe indisposition would prevent her attendance at the ball. MAKISO MINERAL WATERS. All the great medicinal and other mineral springs of the world are located in Boston. At any rate the Waters have their origin here and the local manufacture supplies a'great part of the entire country s demand for such bever ages. As a tn itter of fact, there ore very few bottles of actual product, even of the domestic springs, sold. Of th? foreign brands 110 im portations of consequence are made. It is so much easier, you know, to turn them out to order at tho factory. And the same remark applies to the native water. The stuff vou get under these designations ,it an hotel o'r else * here, served 111 bottles with elaborately men dacious labels, is apt to be bogus. The onlv real thing about it is the excessive price vou have to pay for ?n articlo that costs next to nothing at first haul. The process of manu facturing these mineral waters, as practiced in Boston, is delightfully simple. One solution, the chemical base of which is soda, serves for all of them. By adding ono or more ingre dients to this any desired variety of sprmg fiuid may be produced at a moment's notice. Printed analyses of all the famous medicinal drinks supplied by nature are at the hand of tli. manufacturer, and all he has to do is to follow them by rote in the compounding of the goods he sells. Plain soda is usually nothing but water charged with gas. Lemon soda and other such "tonics." as they are called, are mad" in the same fashion, with an admixture of flavoring extract. Ordinary ginger alo is simply a com bination of cheap chemicals with water, and contains no ginger at all. All these things are sold through the agency of drummers, who go about tho country soliciting orders. DOCBLE INCOMES. It is curious to observe that, in this most civilized of all communities, the intensity of the strugglo for existence, while rendering em ployment scarce, forces very many people to undertake two or more occupations lor the gaining of a livelihood. For instance, there are the salesmen and shop-girls, who earn a few dollars weekly bv appearing on the stago in the evenings as su pernumeraries and "extra ladies of the walking ballet." whenever they are called upon to till out the ensemble of a passing attraction. The theater managers have them on a regular list for engagement as needed. A number of them are excellent singers, trained in the local con servatories. and are well paid for the work they do in the chorus ot comic operas. The young women are selected with especial regard to beauty, particularly in point of figure. Natu rally. the most desirable of th< ni are apt to abandon the counter altogether for the green room, and thus it happens that Boston supplies the country at largo with a big percentage of its chorus and ballet girls. The temptations of life behind tho footlights are great, though hardly of a nature to scare the fair novice olit of undertaking such a career. Frequently, too. the professional artists' models here do like service on the boards alter their daily "sittings'' are over. HOW SOCIAL NEWS IS OBTAINED. Many intelligent colored men in Boston who are occupied as barbers, janitors, coachmen, Ac., in the day time, "hire out'' as waiters for night duty. These fellows quite often have an additional source of outside income, rather surprising iu its nature. They make a business of gathering information about ??society" matters, for sale at so much an item to the newspaper women who are always snooping around in quest of such gossip, "incidentally to the performance of their menial labors, the darkies have opportunities for picking up a good deal of this sort of news from conversa tions at the tables they attend. Exclusive in telligence of a fashionable engagement hitherto unpublished has a money value, don't vou know, and a few details concerning a spicv scandal in "high life" may be readily con verted into cash. And yet people wonder how the editors get hold of facts so carefully hidden. ASSISTING MOTHERS. Not a few women, outside of their regular avocations, make pin money by assisting rich mothers in the costuming of their children. It is hardly possible for ladies of fashion, whose time is taken up with a continual round of social duties, to dress their little girls and bovs. At the same time it is necessary that the small" sons and daughters of the aristocracy should be handsomely clad, and the object in view is most satisfactorily accomplished by employing some person of taste to buy the materials'and make up the garments. I'he clothing of in fants and very young people nowadays has grown to be decidedly an art, and the doing of it well without trouble to one s self is *urth good pay. AT THE QAMINO TABLE. There are some ingenious and highly com mendable young men who turn a more or less honest penny in off hours by gambling. A select few of them act as couplers for faro and roulette banks. Skill of an unusual order, how ever, and sober habits as well, are requisite for competency in this most eligible of employ ments. Poker, being much less exacting as to virtue and otherwise, affords a more available field. At this charming sport it is only neces sary for the initiate, in order to make winning a certainty, to "stand in" with a friend, and thus clean out any acquaintances whom he may have the pleasure of meeting during a social evening around the green baite. Principles of a different nature must be applied to successful play for money at billiards or pool, with drinks or otherwise, where mauual dexterity of a high degree is essential in order to make one's gain ings from the inexpert a certainty. All these accomplishments are well worth the study of young gentlemen who are obliged to support the position of rollicking rams upon salaries ostensibly insufficient for the purpose. Of course, if the employer's till is handy in the daytime, it may not be necessary to expend so much toil in working thoughtless innocents at night. AMATEm LIBRARIANS. A number of men here make an extra income each year by acting as librarians for rich peo ple?devoting so many hours a month to keep ing the books catalogued and in order. Several bright newspaper scribblers earn money by getting up speeches for politicians, lectures on all sorts of topics, and even sermons for lasy clergymen, it is said, though this last point is very likely a mistake. Home construct seduc tive patent-medicine advertisements, for which they are well paid, whiie a few society report ers are supposed to scoop in neat little sums contributed by appreciative society folks who enjoy being written up. win DOW OAHDnmfO. Boston people, though not pretty themselves, have that keen perception of the value of beauty in their surroundings which can only be developed by cultivation through genera tions of progressive refinement. It is not sur prising, therefore, that nature's modest efforts to be decorative, as exhibited in the sprouting of spring-time blossoms, should give pleasure to the inhabitants of this enlightened metropo lis. Her attempt in this direction they not only view with approbation, but strive them selves to co-operate in the task of rendering the vernal season attractive. With this end in view, the Massachusetts horticultural society is devoting much effort to the encouragement of window gardening. A special committee has even been appointed to m? to the distribution of pot-plants among the rommnn. bnt othe rwi?e worthy inhaoitants of this town. I'non appli cation any respectable person can obtain a lev onch for home ornnmentation, fresh from the green-houses of the society. where they are propagated by thousand* in shallow tray* filled with moist sand. heated to a eon?t*nt tempera ture bv st< ain-pipee beneath. Each day ao man* hundred slips are taken from the stock Seraniums. fuchsias, beliotrone* and other owering vegetable*. and stuck by row# into the aand. Within a week they are ready for transplantation into thumb-pot* eTery one with a root of ita own. and in thia ahape the v are given out to those who ask for them, Plant* not of the perennial habit are raised from seed under glass. and are distributed in like manner. All expenses. cost of pots included, are borne bv the Horticultural society. which has recently offered prize* for the beat exhibits by window gardeners. The heneflrinriea of this philanthropic scheme are mostly children, who. once started in the enterprise, evince the greatest enthu?inMii for private horticulture. At the request of the so ciety. communicated by circular, many of the churchee have adopted the plan of giving to each boy and girl in their Sunday schools a potted riant, instead of the usual bunch of flower*, on occasions of religious festival, l.ast Easter Sunday 5.1100 such plants were distrib uted, each one to serve as a nucleus for a win dow garden. Not only will these ga.-d.-n* serve to beantify the city, as it is conceived, bnt the incidental teaching of the younger generation to love and care for flower# must necessarily be followed by good results. issTarcTioxs. One point arose which the committee had not foreseen. The child, upon receiving ita plant, at once began to ask questions regarding the manner of its growth, the watering of it, ma nuring. and so on ad infinitum. To form classes for instruction in the art of window gardening was hardly possible, and so the dif ficulty was met by the publication of a pam phlet embodying the fullest information ou the subject, with an appendix giving a list of the wild flowers of Massachusetts, and stating I where they can be obtained at the seasou when . they bloom. It is intended that ea? li child j shall have a copy of this pamphlet free, so as | to be equipped lor starting a conservatory on a small scale under the most favorable condi tions possible. In tho spring and autumn of each year the city forester gives away quanti ties of plants of all kin Is. and so. lu oneway or another, the whole community is encouraged to grow things for esthetic purposes. It is a uotion worthy of adoption l>y other cities of less general enlightenment than ltoston pride* herself upon. Kene Dache. PKKS11>K\1*1 A L SCU Al* HOOKS. The Exchange Kdltor at the White llousc and Ills Duties. If President Harrison desired to throw off the burden of political life and to become truly great he might achieve fame by starting a ne* s paper; and if be did start a newspaper what a force ho could organize right among the cleri cal staff of the executive mansion. Of couse Secretary ll.ilford would be managing editor; that w >uld not be new to him. CoL Crook's experience ought to fit him for the responsible position of business manager, and there is no doubt at all as to who shouldbe city editor: that ! place, of necessitr, would go to Major l*ruden. who knows Washington and its people tho roughly. The giddy whirl of social life in the : upper tendom of the capital would find its re I flex iu the matter contributed by Miss Sanger, while the political turmoil and strife might be ( picturesquely delineated by Mr. Tibbot, whose training as a newspaper man and residence in Indianapolis ought to have given him a very close acquaintance with the most practi cal kind of politics. Who cotil I better att< n 1 to the musical ami dramatic columns than that prince among vocalists, Warren Young, and whero could a more acceptable authority on athletics bo found thsn in the person of 11. V. La Dow. Th< n what un admirable "responsible editor" Charlie LoefUcr would make. When a mail rushed into the office at tin* rate of 15 or 'it) miles a minute, and. after kicking three or four desks over and upsetting the stove. ask. d if tho eotor was in. Charlie would be able, with that *ine discrimination of his, to decide whether to -dmit him to the s.ne tain sancto rum or to kick huu down stairs. THE EXCHANGE editor is generally a man of a good deal of impor tance. He frequently imagines he owns the paper and ha knows full w< 11 that to him the compositor looks for early copy as regularly as the reading public searches the columns of his paper to see whether his selections are worth reading or not. Oen. Harrison can find his ex change editor at almost any time in the oblong otlice at the northeast corner on the upper floor of the White House. He cliiis papers just as industriously now as he would were he ou the staff of a daily journal, and he is known to man as li. F. Montgomery. He is the editor and compiler of the presidential scrap-book, and it is of 1 is labor* that Tue ban is going to say something. UKCEIVtNQ THE MATT.. Three times a day a messenger brings into his office a big bundle of newspaper*, and the aggregate for each twenty-four hours is over 300. Some of the more important papers are subscribed for. but the majority of them are sent by their publishers w ithout fee or hope of reward. When Mr. Montgomery arrives in the morning ho finds the first batch o|?ened and spread out on his table, and he at once attacks the hug pile. As rapidly as possible he glances down column after column, and whenever he sees anything that seems to him to be fit for the scrap-book ho marks the tmragrapli with a real editorial blue pencil, and later on saws it out with his shears. As a rule the work is quickly done, but lately the scauniug of the papers, and especially of those from Chicago, has been somewhat retarJed by the great space which has been given to the spring crop of divorce suits and the oi c uing of the base ball season. Neither of these siibiecls find a place in the scrap-book, but still there uiav be something hidden away in their midst which might be of inte rest, so the reports must be read carefully. This is somi times a painful duty, but the exchange editor flinc hes not. The Roman sentinel who died at his post was never more faithful than be. THE ?C?Ar-BOOK generally consist* of half a dozen volume*.each devoted to some particular subject or series of subjects. One is devoted to comments on the civil-service reform, or othemise, of the ad ministration. and whatever may be said, critical or laudatory, of appointments or dismissals, is all skillfully pasted on one of the blank, brown pages. The southern question has a volume all to itself, and within those covers the great issue is discussed. Every utterance on that subject has its place, and every man of national importance, aud a few who are of no import ance at all. are on record in black and white for black or white. What is said and written about the foreign policv of the administration by native or alien , experts is in a book all bv itself, and another of the volumes has in it such scraps as relate to ! territorial matters, laud grants, and other affaus which disturb the Interior department. SOCIAL AND PERSONAL. The most interesting volume is that which is made up of direct references to the Presi dent, social and personal?some of them far from social In their nature, and many of them too violently personal to be pleasant. The great bulk of the paragraphs are, however, smooth and musical in their tone, aud pleasant to read. Of miscellaneous matter?too general in its nature to be easily classified?there i* a wealth, and the volume which is set apart to receive it gets filled np quicker than any of it* associates. A great deal of low-grade matter fail* to find a place in the aggregation. Everything i* care fully selected. A mau with no literarv ability and devoid of discretion would probably fill oue of the volumes in a few hours: uuder the present arrangement a book ia rarely complete in less than a week. Mr. Montgomery's long and intimate ac quaintance with "scrap* and "pasting'' has fitted him to be an able assistant to the sport ing editor, but he relinquishes all claim to that department, and i* satisfied to spend his days in "juggling" exchanges. That's how the President's scrap-book is made. Figures Don't Lie. From th? Yankee Blade.
