Rules for the Direction of an Esthetic
From the New York Evening Post.
In the first place do not eat them with cream;
butter or marrow-bones were as fit accompani
tneut. Water, with a little sugar, according to
the sharpness of the fruit, yields the true un- j
obscured tang of the strawberry, which cream
only confuses, and with an alien flavor, which
affects a just taste as a correct ear is affected
by half-tones struck together upon a piano
forte. This simple regimen, however, suits
only the robust. The sensitives, who else would
suffer from the specific poison of the straw
berry, should use, instead of water, a
like quantity of old rum (preferably Grenada),
which not only serves as an almost certain
prophylactic, but is in fine and high congruity
with the savor of the berry, even developing
and increasing it. Certain newer sorts of straw
berries may be had. notablv the Sharpies*,
which are not of the turnip-iike varieties, but
tender throughout, though so big that one must
make two or three mouthfuls of each one, and
flavorous too. These, long-stemmed aud bedded
with green leaves in crystal on a breakfast or a
luncheon table, may entice the most resolute,
and for them, their own stems being handle
enough, the dry plunge into fine sugar suffices;
and the rum may be taken after, perhaps, with
results equally beneficent.
The very height of strawberry-eating is with
coffee. Nobody ever really tasted coffee who
has not drunk it in alternate mouthfuls with
strawberries, and nobody has known the straw
berry flavor excepting immediately after the
clearing of the taste which comes from drink
ing coffee. The clearing property of coffee is
familiar enough, but there is strange ignorance
of this special application of it. The best of
strawberries with the best of coffee make
the supreme refinement of indulgence iu the
Jones' apprehensions.?Brown ? "Ten En
glish paupers came over on the last steamer."
Jones (who is very rich and the father of
several daughters)?"Great goodness! Not all
dukes, I hope."? Texas Hiflings.
Edgar?"Miss Edith, I?ah?have something
most important to ask you. May I?that is
Edith ^softly)?"What is it. Edgar?"
Edgar?"May I?Edith, would you be willing
have our names printed iu the papers, with a

well look for another job, Jerry."
Bricklayer?"What for? What have I done?
"Your trowelful of mortar struck the owner
of the building down on the first floor."
"Let him keep out of the way. If the bell
strikes twelve when I've got a trowel of mortar
I don't care where it drops."?Chicago Herald.
Slie'a decidedly homely; I don't like her eyes,

Her complexion is bad, unattractive her chin;

Compared with true graces. I'll make her iny wife;

?Mr. J?"Very likely.
Mrs. J?"Well, I don't care to go. I think it
very inde?orous for young women to appear ou

which there is any Record.

TATiojf rot that month in r**cEDi5o years?
THE WEATHER CIXA1 AND OOOL TO-MOEBOW.
To-day, with iti (bowers and its winds, is a
fitting end of one of the wettest months Wash
ington hal ever experienced. May, reputed to
be the time of joy and gaiety, the time of sun
shine and warmth, picnics and lawn-tennis,
marriages and garden parties, has succeeded in
malting a record in this year of Our Lord. 1889,
of having been as wet as a month can possibly
be. without borrowing a few days from its
neighbors at either end. According to the sig
nal office, 8.67 inches of rain descended upon
the soil of the capital city. This was 5.21 inches
in excess of the normal rainfall for Msy. and
only in keeping with the reoord of the year in
A DECIDEDLY MOIST 8PRIN0.
Since January 1 there has been an excess
over the average rainfall of 11.01 inches. There
has been this peculiar feature about the rain
fall along the coast, that while there was a
large excess of rain here, in Baltimore, and
in New York, Philadelphia has had a deficiency.
This condition of affairs has prevailed through
out the eastern section of the country, the ex
cesses of precipitation standing side by side
with deficiencies in place* only a few miles
THE VEBY HEAVY 8TOHM
that has caused the rain here is centered in
Ohio and western New York, and is moving
slowly to the northeast Peculiarly enough it
was the presence of this storm over the states
just south of the Oreat Lakes that saved the
wheat and other cropB of that region from
probable total destruction. There were low
temperatures reported all through that vicinity
and westward, and as a result there were killing
froxtB in Iowa and light frosts in Tennessee.
Had it not been for the storm, with its occom
panvment of heavy clouds, there would un
doubtedly have been killing frosts all through
Illinois. Indiana, and Ohio, and the wheat crop
would have been badly damaged, if not ruined.
This phenomenon was the result of the natural
law that frosts form only under a clear sky.
ONE MAS WHO WAS SATISFIED WITH YESTEBDAY'S
The special diet ion of Wednesday fore
shadowing rain on Decoration Day was thought
to be dangerous at the signal office, as it in
cluded the entire country from the Gulf states
to the lakes. Probably the only man in Wash
ington who wanted it to rain in Washington
yesterday was Lieut. Dunwoodv, the officer
who made the prediction. He got his wish,
and the "special' was completely verified, for
the whole country included in tfie prediction
had rain before midnight.
A SPECIAL "CLEABINO-UP" BULLETIN.
This morning, looking over the map. he saw
indications that the storm center would move
during the day, after gathering in a couple of
small local lows hanging on its skirts, and thus
sweeping off would cause a general clearing
up all along the coast. On the basis of this he
issued a "special" as follows:
"The probabilities are that the storm which
now extends over the Atlantic coast and the
lake regions will be followed on Saturday on
the Atlantic coast from New York southward
to North Carolina by much colder and generally
fair weather. Frosts are indicated Saturday
morning for the states of the Ohio valley and
thence southward over east Tennessee, West
Virginia, northern Georgia and western North
LOWER TEMPERATURE IN WASHINORON.
The temperature here will probably go down
to the neighborhood of 60 degrees.
Very heavy rainfalls were reported and a
prediction has been sent forth that the Ohio
river will rise 5 feet at Cincinnati by June 3.
Here are some of yesterday's records of the
rainfall: Washington, 1.58 inches; Charlotte.
1.76; Lynchburg. 2.00; Port Huron, 1.64; Pitts
burg. 1*44; Parkersburg, 1.48; Knoxville. 1.32;
Lieut. Dunwoody retires from the prediction
office to-day for a month. He has made an
excellent record, as usual, during May, and
Gen. Greely has received many congratulations
upon the uniform success of the service's pre
dictions. Prof. Hazen will be the predictions
officer for June.

Joseph Borrows was born January 30, 1807.
and when five years of age hi* parents moved
to a house on the north side of E street, near
10th street northwest, where the doctor oontin
ued to reside after their death, in all a period
of three-quarters of a century. A few years
ago he moved to the house in which he died.
He studied medicine under the elder Dr.
Stoughton. and with Dr*. Noble Young and
Harvey Lindsay formed the graduating class
of the medical department of Columbian
college in March. 18'28. He entered at once on
the active practice of medicine, which he con
tinued up to a few years ago. when the lufirmi
ties of age compelled hun to keep to his house.
During the chcflera epidemic of 1833 he was
active in relieving the sufferings of the af

member of which. Samuel Bogan. afterward
studied medicine and graduated under Dr. Bor

of physicians studied medicine with Dr. Bor

and the late Rich C. Croggen. Dr. Borrows
was one of the incorporator* of the Medical
society of this District (of which he was for
many years the president), the Medical associa

and fifty years ago was surgeon of the Wash

for a number of years.
There was probably no more popular physi

A young woman named Lillie Hayes was in
the Police Court this morning, charged by
Policeman Ellis with having kept an unlicensed
bar at No. 1114 C street, iu the "Division." Mr.
C. Carringtou made an appeal to the court for
mercy. He said that the defendant had kept
a disreputable house at the place mentioned.
She determined to lead a l>etter life and left
the house, renting the premises to another
woman. Then, thinking it was just as bad t >
reut the place for immoral purposes a* it was
to conduct it. she removed the furniture aud
quit the business for good. Under these cir
cumstances he thought the ends of Justice
would not be defeated if the woman** personal
bonds were taken. Policeman Ellis was called
and he gave testimony in substantiation of Mr.
Carrington's statement. Mr. Shillington said
that with such a state of facts existing he would
offer no objection to the court adopting Mr.
Carrington's suggestion. Judge Miller said
that where persons made up their miud to re

Sand for a Balky Horse.
From tlie Cbicatro Journal.
"What are we stopping forV" said the lady.
"Balkv home on the track." answered the
gentleman. "He won't move for whipping or
pelting or whisper* in the ear or?anything."
"Did I ever tell you," she asked, "about my
experience with a balky horse? No? Well, it
was out on the Colorado plain*. The most ele
gant vouug eligible of our set had invited me
to tale a ride behind his higb-spinted. fine
blooded horse. I got myself up to do justice
to the occasion. All went delightfully till,
when we were on the open plain outside Den
ver. that valuable animal coucluded to pause
in his rapid motion and meditate. My escort
shook the reins, clucked persuasively,
remonstrated encouragingly, gave ? touch
of the whip, at which the horse
reared and kicked viciously, but still we were
stationary out on that lonely sandy leveL My
eleguut escort grew red in the face with morti
fication and clinched his teeth so us not to let
slip any regretable words. Tf you will allow
me to get out I could start him.' he said. *Oh,
by no means,' I rejoined. 'I could never hold
him. Let me get out aud try putting sand in
his mouth. I've been told that worked like a
I charm.' And so it did. I clambered out of
the buggy, urabbed a good fist full of tine sand,
opened the jaws of the horse and threw it in.
Tne astonished horse tore off like a flash, and
as I stood alone, live miles from home iu that
solitary place and watched the maddened horse,
the powerless driver aud the black buggy grow
a mere dot in the distance, I decided the expe
riment had beeu a perfect success as far as
starting the horse was concerned."
Fiction as a History of Society.
H. W. Maliir, in Scribner.
From the day* of Fielding to those of Chaa.
lleade English life has never missed faithful
record at the hands of those who have compre
hended it bccauso they have pierced it with
their sympathetic iisight. Every great polit
ical movement like Chartism, every striking
political incident like the Gordon riots, every
torui of discontent aud agitation among the
lower claswes has had fit and often lasting rec
ord. While George Eliot has set forth the tre
mendous force of inheritance and environment,
the vigorous and often coarse brush of Dickens
has painted, on a great canvas, the homely life
of ttie common people; and the inimitable art
of Thackeray, equally akiu to irony and tear*,
has made us permaueut possessors of the
social habit and character of the last cen
tury. The virile genius of Bjornson, in
the' latest work of his hand. "Flags in
the City and the Harbor." deal* with some of
the most obscure problems of social and family
life; Turguenief has made Kussian character
under the pressure of absolutism comprehensi
ble to us; Tolstoi commands the attention of a
new constituency of readers, deeply moved by
the marvelous fidelity with which he reproduces
phases of experience, hidden processes of
character, at once remote and familiar; while
of Zola it must be confessed, whatever we think
of his themes and his art. that he at leaat as
sumes to lay bare the very heart of oertain
social condition* in France. Fiction is un
questionably the most attractive and influential
form through which men of literary genius ex
press themselves to-day, and no fact of social
significance, no human relationship, no class
limitation, capacity or condition, will escape
the instinctive search for life which possesses
this generation. That which the student of
social questions seeks as matter of science the
novelist seeks as matter of art.
