A Memorial to t>?* Erected by Deaf
Mute) In This City.
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.
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
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 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

is represented in the act of teaching his first

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

I due. in large measure, to the interest taken by

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.
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

tablished. and which has since continued in
successful existence, honored as the mother

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,

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

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

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?

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

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.

The Wonderful Work of the Modest
Street Car.
SEBVICE or Washington?seventy-nine times
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.
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.
"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
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
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.
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

(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.
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

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.

They Are Employed In Some Cities, but
not Here.
"Why don't you employ female drug clerks?"
asked a Stau reporter of a druggist the other
"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
"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."

Correspondence of The Etiwa 9ta*.
Boston, May 10.?The funniest And most
original method of keeping the lenten season
just past is to be credited to one of Boston's
leaders of fashion. No humiliation was too
severe for her, the most conspicuous of society
women here, to endure, as a penance for pant
and future frivolity. Besides, she enjoys being
advertised. And so she went each day during
the season of fasting, in her carriage, to the
swell Church of the Advent, and spent the hair
of a morning hour in humbly scrubbing down
the stone steps, to the pious edification of a j
crowd of small boys. Having completed her j
task, she was accustomed to pick up her scrub- j
bing brush and pail. and. reseating herself in
her elaborately equipped landau, drive home
ward behind the ui^uifi 'd coachman and foot
man who shared with grave and stately rigidity ]
the box in front. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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

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
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.
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.

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.
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

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.
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,
