men, wear the best and showiest of uniforms,
and have all the social training of the navy
with the discipline and gallantry of the army.
The marine corps is the oldest branch of the
armed service of the government. It was cre

and fought the first battle. The first victory
of the devolution was won by landing a party
of marines in the Bahama Islands. The corps

Mrs. Haywood is not particularly fond of so
ciety and therefore does not take a very active
part in the fashionable gaieties of the capital,
but in the quieter circle of her personal friends
she is a great favorite on account of her agree
able manners and other gifts which lead to
mrs. capt. aunix.
Mrs. Ella Butler Stevens Mannix, wife of Capt.
D. Mannix, is one of the most entertaining and
attractive ladies in social life. During her
young-lad vhood she was a great belle in Wash
ington fashionable circles. Her father, Mat
thew H. Stevens, was a prominent merchant
and her mother. Susan Butler Jeffries, belonged
to one of the old families of Virginia. In 1873
Miss Stevens married Capt. Mannix; their tren
ding was one of the most brilliant events of the
season. Mrs. Mannix has since that time visited
many parts of the globe.
Capt Mannix is a native of Ohio, entered
the volunteer navy early in the war of the re
bellion, and. after serving more than two years
with great gallantry, in 1875, as a reward for
his services was appointed in the marine corps.
Having graduated in the torpedo school in
W78 Capt. Manuix made a two-years' cruise
with Commodore Shufeldt around the world.
Ibe Chinese government having applied for a
torpedo instructor Capt. Maunix was granted
leave of absence for that service. In 1831 he
was accompanied to his new field of duty by
Mrs. Mannix. Having made the journey across
the Americau continent to San Francisco and
voyage on the Pacific ocean Mrs. Mannix made
the lourney with her husband through the In
land sea of Japan to Shanghai, and thence to
China, where the captain was stationed Hav
ing a large corps of young Chinamen of good
families, who were partially educated in the
United States, he began his course of instruc
During the intervals of his duty as instructor
Mrs. Maunix and himself visited l'ekin and the
great wall of China. During her four-years'
residence in that ancient empire the acquired '

with almost the fluency of a celestial.
Having completed his term of service Capt. I
and Mrs. Mannix continued the circuit of the !
globe, visiting India and Europe in returning
to the I nited States. After his return Capt.
Mannix was again assigned to duty on the
Brooklyn and returned to China in command
Of the marine guard of the admiral's flagship.
( apt. and Mrs. Mannix. with their inte resting
family, reside at the barracks and very pleas- !
antlv eatertain their friends during the enjoy- 1
able occasions of the Marine band concerts on
Thursdays during the summer.
MRS. CAPT. POPE.
Another branch in the line of duty and in the '
social circle of the marine corps is that repre
sented by the officers of the marine guard at
the Washington naval arsenal. The commander
at this post. Capt. Percival C. Pope, a son of
Bear Admiral John Pope, served four years in
the navy before entering the marine corps in
1861. fie was appointed from New Hampshire,
and in this interval of service ho distinguished
himself in many battles of the re
bellion on sea aiid land. He has held
his present command since 18H6. During the
brilliant seasons of the late administrations the
beautiful and affable wife of the handsome
captain of marines held her drawing-rooms in
the quarters of '.he post-captain of marines at
the naval arsenal. Mrs. Pope was Sarah W.
Parker, daughter of one of the most celebrated
captains in the merchant-marine of New
England in the palmy dnye of American clip
pers, those fleet-winged messengers of sea.
Capt Parker was in command of the famous
clipper Santee ot Portsmouth, N. H.. when she
was captured after a long chase in the Indian
ocean by the confederate privateer Florida.
The skillful seamanship cf Capt. Parker, with
only sails as his means of motive power, was
almost more than a match for the privateer
propelled by steam.
Mrs. Pope is very popular in a large circle of
friends in the highest ranks of fashionable life.
The captain and Mrs. Pope have two sons. One
of them, a talented young man of twentv, is
one of the civil engineers in the service of" the
"Nicaragua canal company and started with the
pioneer construction party of that great icter
oceauic enterprise. DeB. B. K.

Ah, no! our dead they are not lost,
ltoath's river only Uiey Uave crossed
To realms sublime.
On those serene, celestial strands
They beckon us with spirit hands.
To guide us o'er the trackless tide.
Who linger on the mortal side
A little time
Not lost: but saved forevermore
W 1th loved ones who had gone before;
And beings pur
^ eary and weak, the burden great.
Their eager spirits could not wait.
They saw before life's stormy path
V hat strife and tears the Journey bath?
Hard to endure.
Then far beyond death's turbid stream.
They saw a light, whoee Heavenly beam
Was hope and Juj.
With faith the river they did brave
And vanish on Its soundless wave.
We know they reached the other shore.
Where hurtful things shall nevermore
Their peace destroy.
We should not weep, for never there
Shall sorrow oome, or tears, or care.
Or death's fell shad*.
Ne'er, ne'er that glorious realm within
Shall come the blight of mortal sin.
>0 tempest there, no cheerless night.
But ehiue* an orb whose golden light
Will never fade.
Our selfish sorrows take away,
O trod: until the heavenly day
Succeeds the night,
Although their forms no more we see.
Of t lingering near us they may be.
And this should tears and grief remove;
Beath make* no breach In hope and hove.
Though he doth salt*.
And though no sound our ears may raacft,
Thar* oom*s a spiritual spe*ch
Krom that far stoor*.
It bids us hope and toil in faith,
And to the doubting soul it saith:
"boon shall ye reach tha heavenly pUU,
And see jour loved and lost again,
But lost no more."

A SILENT CONVENTION.
Some Notes About the Coming iiather
ing of Deaf Mutes.
ARRANGEMENTS FOB THE MEETING IX THIS CITT
NEST WEBK?EXERCISES AT THE UNVEIUNO
OF THE OALLAUDKT STATUE?THREE HUNDRED
DEAF-MUTE VISITORS EXPECTED.
Some three hundred deaf mutes, it is ex
pected, will attend their third national con
vention, which will be held in this city next
week. Ah might be naturally expected from
the personnel of the gathering, the convention
will be a silent one. On this account it will be
the most unique assemblage ever held at the
national capital. It sounds rather paradoxical
to speak of a convention where there will be
debate and animated discussion, the Nading
of papers and the transaction of routine
business as a silent convention. It will not,
however, be absolutely true that no oral words
will be spoken. The papers that have been
prepared to be read before the convention will
be translated from the sign language in which
they will be originally presented into oral
speech. As the author of the paper declaims
in the graceful language of the deaf mute
the translator will interpret to the hearing
ears what has been so effectively addressed to
the intelligent eyes.
It has been the custom, however, at these
gatherings to carry on the discussions and at
tend to the business brought before the con
vention exclusively in the sign language, and
those who attend and who are not fortunate
enough to know how to read the fingered
speech will lose that portion of the proceed
ings. It will be an intelligent body. There
are now in this country some seventy-three in
stitutions devoted to the education of thisclass.
Some of them are large establishments having
as many as 500 students. The professors and
teachers iu these institutions will, as a rule, at
tend the convention, and, in addition,
there will come from all parts of the country
the bright, intelligent men and women, who,
in spite of their inequality in gifts of nature
with the large proportion of their fellow-men,
have risen superior to these inequalities, and
have won position and honorable distinction in
this world. '1 heir meeting iu this city is ap
propriate for the reason that this place is recog
nized as the center, not only because it is the
capital of the country, but here is located the
National Deaf Mute college, the only place in
the country offering the advantages of an aca
demic course ol studies to the deaf mutes.
THE QALLAUDET STATUE.
At the last national deaf-mute convention,
which was held in New York city four years
ago, it was decided to erect a statue to Thomas
H. Gallaudet, the father of Dr. E. M. Gallau
det, president of the National Deaf-Mute col
lege. Contributions have been received from
every state and territory in the Union for this
purpose. Some have given 5 cents, some 85
cents, and so on up to larger amounts, so that
the statue which will be unveiled on the lawn
in front of the college building next Wednes
day will be a representative tribute from the
deaf mutes of tnis country to the life and
character of the man who is held in living es
teem by every deaf mute in America who has
enjoyed the advantages of education made
possible to them by the philanthropic and
zealous efforts of Mr. Gallaudet in the early
years of the centnry.
The arrangements in regard to hotel and
railroad rates for the convention have been
made by the local committee appointed by the
president of the last convention, Mr. E. A.
Hodgson, of New York city. This committee is
composed of John Burton Qotchkiss and Chas.
K. W. Strong, and they have made favorable
terms in both particulars. It has not been
decided positively where the sessions of the
convention will be held, but it is probable that
the ball in the national museum will be the
THE PROOBAM OF THE CONVENTION.
The first session of the convention will be
held on Wednesday morning, Jane 26. On
Tuesday evening preceding the delegates who
are in the city will attend divine service at the
Church of the Ascension, when addresses will
be made in the sign language by deaf clergy
men. On Wednesday, at 9 a.m., the first busi
ness session will be held. All preliminary
business will be transacted at that time, such
as the enrollment of members, the president's
address, reports of officers and reports of com
mittees. In the afternoon, at 8 o'clock, the
delegates will attend the ceremonies in con
nection with the unveiling of the Gallaudet
statue at Kendall Green. The local committee
in charge of the unveiling ceremonies is com
posed of Prof. Amos G. Draper and C. K. W.
Strong. The program they have prepared
provides for exercises both in the
hall of the college and on the green
in the vicinity of the statue. It is
expected that the Marine band will furnish
the music. In the hall the exercises will be
begun with prayer by the Rev. Job Turner,
which will be followed by the report of the
executive committee. Edmund Booth and
others of Gallaudet's pupils, and his children,
will make brief addresses. The oration will be
delivered by Robert P. McGregor. A poem
written by Mrs. Laura C. R. Searing (Howard
Glyndon) will be read orally by Joseph C.
Gordon and in signs by Miss Georgia Elliott.
There will be then a short intermission to allow
the audience to proceed to the site of the
statue. After music the president of the
natiopal association will deliver the presenta
tion address, and upon its conclusion tue statue
will be unveiled by Master Herbert Draper
Gallaudet and Miss Marion Wallace Gallauaet,
grandchildren of Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet.
The address of acceptance will be made by Dr.
Edward M. Gallaudet, and the ceremonies will
be brought to a close with prayer by Bev.
Henry W. Byle.
THE BANQUET. ?
In the evening a banquet will be held at Wil
lard's hotel, at which both ladies and gentle
men will be present. Sessions of the conven
tion will be held in the morning and afternoon
of both Thursday and Friday. The following
papers, among others, will be read at the com
ing convention, "The federation of the deaf,"
by Thomas F. Fox, of New York; ''Compul
sory education of the deaf," by Mr. J. L.
Smith, of Fairbault. Minn., and "Don't," by
Mr. H. 0. White, of Salt Lake Citv, Utah. On
Saturday the delegates will visit Mount Vernon.
The headquarters of the convention in this
citv will be at the Ebbitt boose.
The closing or class day exercises of the col
lege at Kendall Green wul take plaoe on Wed
nesday morning in the oollege hall.

The Gallaudet statue, which is to be unveiled
next Wednesday, will be placed in position to

Correspondence of Tu Evcsiko 8tu:
Bos to x, Jane 30.
A company in now being organized in this
city which proposes to introduce and carry
into practice a new tyitem for disposing of the
dead. It haa already become recognized that,
in this generation at least, cremation will never
be adopted to any extent aa a anbatitute for in- |
terment. Popular prejudice, backed by the
Christian church, it too strong against it. Darn
ing it thought to be as barbarous iu these days
as burial underground was considered by the
highly-civilized peoples of ancient Greece aud
Home. A method superior to either, aa it is
claimed, and entirely doing away with the ob
jectionable features of both, will soon be
offered here for the acceptance of cultivated
Ilostonians who uiay be anxious to have their
post mortem remains scientifically cared for.
The process to be employed niukes one of the
ck'Rimug end purifying properties of fire,
without permitting that element to attack the
body. Dry air in the only other agent called
into service. Already plans are being drawn
for an enormous mausoleum-like structure of
massive materials, to be erected at quickly as
possible after incorporation papert have been
secured by the company aforesaid. One por- j
tion of the building will be designed somewhat
on the principle of a honeycomb, containing 1
from 200 to 300 small compartments, adapted
for accommodation of a single corpse each.
These compartments will be so arranged
as to be continually swept by pow
erful currents of dry air from
big steam-fans. Bodies subjected to the
treatment will be wrapped simply in winding
sheets and laid upon marble slabs in the com
partments. They will not be embalmed, nor
will they be placed in cofbnt to retard and pro
long decomposition. Ou the contrary, this
operation of nature will be allowed to take its
course, the gases and liquids developed by it
being absorbed by the dry-air currents and '
swept upward to a chamber above, where the
noxious vapors are passed through lire and de
stroyed. In this way, after a time, the corpse
itself is reduced to the condition of a mummy,
retaining an appearance natural though not
lifelike, and susceptible of preservation for
A BAFS DEPOSIT FOR CORPSES.
It is then ready for storing away, if the rela- !
tives so desire, in one of the 100,000 vaults,
which will take up the major part of the mau
solenm. These vaults can be rented or pur
chased outright for family use, as in a ceme
tery, metal door plates rendering confusion
impossible, so that the surviving patron will
enjoy the privilege of ready access to his dear
departed a"t all hours. Each of the mummify
ing compartments previously referred to will
probably communicate by a wire with an elec
tric annunciator in an office on the first floor,
where a gentlemanlv clerk will always be in
readiness to respond to any call from a guest
who may chance to have been registered pre
maturely. It thiB new system is found success
ful here it will be introduced by the same com
pany in other large cities by "the building of
similar mausoleums on an even bigger scale.
A DENTAL TBfST.
With the possible exception of the monopoly
in undertakers' supplies, there it no organiza
tion of business capital in this country which
directs its own branch of industry with such
absolute high-handedness as does the dental
trust. The iniquity of this autocratic institu
tion excited prolonged howls of dixgust in the
convention of Massachusetts Dental Surgeons
just held here. But, all the same, acknowledg
ment was made with humiliating unanimity
that the tooth-doctoring profession iu the
United States is practically at the mercy of the
tyrants who manufacture Its instruments and
working materials. For these oppressive per
sons, it would seem, are banded together in a
league to hold up the prices, and, having con
trol of nearly all the goods produced, they are
in a position to dictate whatever terms thev
like to the dealers who are not allowed to sell
anything below ' certain exorbitant sched
ule rates. Of course the result is that the un
fortunate practitioner is chaiged exeessivelv for
everything that is necessary to the carrying on
of his business, from the chair his patients use
to the gold filling for their teeth.
The result is achieved in a manner at once
simple and pleasing. The trust includes all
the important manufacturers, who own nearly
every patent worth having on dental instru
ments, engines, furniture, Ac. Whenever a
new contrivance makes its appearance, they
gobble it at once by purchase and bring it out,
or, as is frequently the case, store away the
models, in order that the improvements they
represent shall not interfere with the sale of
less desirable mechanical devices already in
use. Iu this way they have acquired proprie
tary rights in manv most valuable inventions
which dentists would be glad to employ only that
the monopoly has cabbaged them, and will not
Sroduce them for the public benefit because to
o so woald cost money. These manufacturers
too, have enormously expensive plants, with
out which no rival could possibly compete
with them. Take the matter of tooth-making
for instance. To make a start in this little
trade one must have, for a single item, at least
fifty molds representing different sizes of
jaws. Such molds are carved by hand in
brass so laboriously that ?260 apiece is tLu
ordinary price for good ones. There yon have
an investment of ?12,900 right off. Other suit
able apparatus is apportionately dear. Thus
it comes about that, if you want a set of false
teeth, you are compelled to buy them of the
trust, through your dentist, for the reason that
no outsider nas good ones to sell.
A TAX OX THX TOOTHLESS.
Furthermore, you mutt pay for your teeth
just as much as the trust chooses to charge
vou?that is to say about four times what would
be ? reasonable price. If this demand were
quadrupled, vou would have to "ante up" all
the same, unless you made up your miud to
forego chewing, or were content with grinders
of painfully inferior quality. The monopoly
has special processes of its own for turning out
the rubber in little red parallelograms, from
which the ''plates" are made, while ttie molars
and incisors themselves, with the artificial gums
they fit in, have to be cast in porcelain with
most exquisite care, and oolored by expert
hands. There is the delicate pink of the gum
and the yellowish tint of the tooth toward the
root, both to be combined with the very sub
stance of the material, as the set, npper or
lower, takes shape from the mold cast by
model in wax of the patient's mouth. And
when the finished product comes forth from the
intense heat to which itistubjectedforthecom
biuing in proper shape of the rubber plate with
the porcelain parts, yon can hardly realize that
the teeth are not real ones. Years ago it was
the fashion to make artificial teeth so perfect
that their very whiteness and straightness were
calculated to excite suspicion at to their
naturalness. But nowadays the art is better
understood, and all sorts of little defects and
crookednesses are introduced so ingeniously as
to greatly enhance the deception. Teeth are
furnished ready-made in all styles, for dentists'
use, in pairs and threes, attached to sections of
imitation gam, and likewise singly in long
strings of 82 each, for full seta. At the exhibi
tion given here by the Massachusetts dental
rargeons the other day, nearly one quarter of
the big hall was devoted to a grew some display
of many hundreds of thousands of grinders.
They looked so natural that one oonld not help
imagining them actual teeth, reft with unim
aginable howls from a myriad reluctant jaws,
to make a holiday show for a society of re
morseless wielders of the forceps.
HOW TU TBCST OPEBATKS.
The monopoly is able to fix prices to rait
Itself by the control It exercises over the
dealers in the goods it manufactures. The
dealers cannot ret the goods from other
?ourcee, and so the manufacturers who form
the trust have the whip-hand. They have es
tablished regulations, by which no dealer is
permitted to sell their products save at certain
preecribed prices. Each manufacturer sets
what price plsesee him upon his own wares
where more than one firm makes the same
thing there is aa agreement?aad the deal*
must ask precisely that much for them. If he
Is caught disobeying this onoe, if only by a
oent's worth, be is fined ?200. If he is oaoght
twice he is blacklisted, aad then he may
se well shut up shop, for bo mere
goods will he be permitted to boy of
the monopoly under any oireumstaneee.

Those who ought to know declare that the
soul-destroying game of poker u more danger
ously prevalent just now in Boston's clubs then
ever before. For obvious reasons, the Somer
set, which represent* the gilt-edged idleness of
the town, goe* in for this sort of amusemeut
iuost extensively. There has alwavs been a
peat deal of gambling in this club. * Its mem
bers are mostly rich young men, who find an
agreeable employment for their leisure in
green-baize exercises. Next to the Somerset
in point of addiction to such dissipstions, it is
said, is the Algonquin, a comparatively new
social organization with a verv large and some
what indiscriminate membership. Manv of the
merchant princes who belong to it are fond of
a little game, and jackpots run high there.
Also there are several small and Terr
exclusive gentlemen's clubs here which
have no object of existence worth men
tioning save pokor. The pastime, even
for those who can afford it, is of course de
moralizing. Nothing can be introduced into a
club so likely to produce discord as a poker
table. Besides, the game, though commonlv
supposed to be all luck, is essentially one of
skill, and in a club where it is played there are
aln:o?t sure to be men who. by means techni
cally fair, actually make their living out of
their winnings As for the pastime'* demoral
izing influence it is already beginning to be
complained of in the French clubs where the
game ha* been domesticated. The 1'arisian
club, as everybody knows, is a proprietary
gambling hell pure and simple, and the adop
tion cf poker has seriously reduced the re
ceipts of the croupier; for the percentage ac
cruing to the "bouse" from the American
form of the card-vice is much less
than that obtained from baccarat, and
the loss thus involved has necessarily
occasioned no little disgust with comnarativelv
harmless ? draw." In the latest number of the
I'arit I [lustre this feeling is editorially voiced
by a sympathetic leader writer, who says that
the innovation actually threatens the club*
with bankruptcy. Save for the abstraction of
an occasional "chip," by way of contribution,
he adds, the banker "has nothing to do but to
look at the 'pokerites.' who remain seated for
hours, speaking a language unintelligible to
most people, a*, -Je suis blind' (I am blind),
?Vous m avez bluffe' (You have bluffed me).
Faisons-nous un pot' (Let us make a pot\ and
sb on." Those phrases will be familiar to every
experienced poker player who reads this letter,
however mysterious thev may appear to the
uninitiated. * Rest Bach*.
A STRANGE SIGHT.
The Methodist Missionaries Preaching
at the Derby.
From the Pal] Halj Gazette.
At Epsom, which on Derby day t* said to be
one vast temple of the evil one, it is just the
opposite, for right in the center of the crowd,
among bookmakers, pugilists, and acrobats,
and all the noisy rout, a tent has been erected
in which and from out of which a small army
of energetic Methodists are carrying the war
everywhere into the enemy's crowded camp.
As early as 10 an immense and ever-growing
multitude assembled; the giant "fancy fair"
was in full swing, and busiest among the busy
were, once again, the faithful hundred, all of
whom had volunteered their help, and many of
whom gave up four precious days of their
annual holiday to be present at Epsom. Their
plan of campaign was to go out in groups,
plant their harmonium, and behind it their
violinists and trumpeter*, in the center of a
crowd, and there to *mg, to play, to pray, and
It was a curious sight yesterday to see the
groups of workers among the crowds of idlers.
There was nothing whatever of the average
?treet preacher about them; black coats and
low black felt hats were banished, but Mr. Nix
appeared in the regulation gray sporting over
coat and tall, light-grav hat; others were
more "sporting" still, with "button-holes" of
geraniums and ferns and field-glast slung over
the shoulder. Loose light summer suits,
dainty light neckties, and ornamental pins,
gray felt or tall black silk hats, together with
a matter-of-fact and business-like air, made
them look very much in the right place. And
there they stood, elbowed by pugilists, occa
sionally jeered, at by a rowdy ruffian, but
always surrounded by a crowd.* The Metho

among the most hardened eooffers. Then,
again, while outside the excitement became
quite boundless, while the dust and the hot sun
blinded everybody, and while the first bell was
slowly tolled which announced that the great

strained every muscle to catch a eight of the
