She Employ* Senator EtmtU' Law Firm to Overhaul the Divorce Records. A Sew York special to the Philadelph a /? fvirrr says that the efforta of Mrs. Fleck s eon and husband to keep her quiescent under the stigma they bare attached to her have been futile, for yes terday the employed the law Arm of which Sen ator Wb, M. Evarta it head in an effort to undo work which had been done in her name but without her consent. Her counsel, Evarts, Choate 3t Beaman, got an order from Judge Bookstaver at a special term of the court of common pleas, directing the clerk of the court to allow any member of the said Arm to take a copy of any and ail of the pleadings and testimony or other papers in tha alleged divorco proceedings of Mrs. Flack against her husband, the sheriff. Sheriff Flack entered the county conrt house shortlv before noon yesterday, and was com fortably ensconced in bis private office before the reporters were aware he was in the city. He t>ur*ued the same tactics today that he did Wednesday, and refused to see representatives the prese. His henchmen guarded all the doors and refused to present cards or deliver messages to the sheriff. Mr. Flack looked care Worn aid presented the appearance of a man with aheap of trouble on hi* mind. If the decree of divorce shall be declared il legal Mr. Flack will have cause to look trou bled, for in that case hi* marriuge with another lady. which is said to have supervened the de cree, will make him a bigamist and place the U> in an unenviable position, and there will be two irate women for him to settle with in stead of one. Add to this the odium reflecting on him for his part is the proceedings, and the position of Mr. Flack will be about as undesira aa his worst enemy could wish. ISI The Johnstown Relief Fund. The board of inquiry at Johnstown, Fa., has been in every ward in the devastated district and yet over 500 orders have not been called for. There are over a thousand cases yet that have not been rated, and night sessions will be held until they can be classified. In the meantime clerks are preparing tabu lated statements from which the slate commis aion will draw deductions to make a basis for the final distribution. Treasurer Thompson's clerks paid 216 orders to-day, aggregating $25, #96. Business is good, and those merchants who bave an established trade are hard worked.

In the last number of Harper'* Bazar Thomas Went forth Hi^ginson has a thoughtful and entertaining paper on "Writing for syndicates." The best bit of advice in the paper is the fol lowing: "The way to obtain a wide hearing is not to pnnt in the periodicals which have the largest subscription list, but to say something so timely and so effective that every periodical in the land shall be obliged to copy it. Not the pen alone, not types alone, but the scissors rule mankind. Probably the sentence you plan expressly for im mortality will never get there: but to find some off-hand phrase of which you at the time thought nothing?to tind this echoing from corner to coiner of every country newspaper, until it is sent back to you in a marked copv of the Alaskan htronler?this is to secure a hear ing such as no mere syndicate can give." The remark about the scissors mav cause thought less people to smile, but there is in it a world of truth. Fortunate, indeed, is the newspaper or other publication that has a pair of intelli gent. versatile and otherwise well-equipped Kisaors. Hidden Treasure In Allahabad. From the St. James Gazette. The Allahabad papers received by the incom ing mail describe a curious search for treasure believed to bo buried in the Alford park in that town. It seems that some years before the mutiny the then prime minister of the king of l>elhi resigned his appointment and brought bis family and worldly possessions to Allaha bad, where he built a large house and an under ground chamber to keep his jewels and treas ure. This latter is said to have included a lakh of gold mohura, of the kind now valued at twetity-eigbt rupees each. Shortly before the mutiny he died, and during the disturbance his family fled, covering up the chamber as best they could. When order was restored a line of barracks was constructed by order of Lord Canning on the site of the village in which the ex-premier's house was built, and the existence of the underground chamber was forgotten by ?11 except some relatives, who on trying to reach it on one occasion were so stung by hornets which they liad disturbed that it was taken as a aign that it was Owl s will that the treasure should be reserved for a future generation. In coarse of tima the barracks were alao demol ished and the present park laid oat. Becently the existence of the treasure was brought to the attention of Capt. Hamilton, an old resident of Allahabad, who nad helped to prepare the ?ite for the barracks. He obtained as much in formation as could be got from the existing relatives and obtained from the collector per mission to dig and a police escort. On the 22d of May about sixty coolies were set to work anil they soon came upon some masonry: but unfortunat- ly a young cobra was unearthed just then, and the men refused to work any more, believing that the treasure was guarded by cobras, and that It was an act of sacrilege to dig for it. The excavations, however, were going on when the mail left. Tkt Will T*av*l n?

"First," saiil the professor, and his long, supple fingers closed about the pack," I ill say that not only is it easier to cheat at bacca rat than at any other game of csrds where money is bet, but tbe easiest war to cheat at baccarat is by 'palming.' By palming' I mean concealing carls in the palm of tbe hani A big hand is not necessary. On the contrary, it excites suspicion. A natural palmer is born.

Ihe Saddening Report of a Student Who Secured One of the Glittering Prizes. From tbe New l'ork Sun. A young law student in a big down-town law office, who. after persistent effort, had at last secured an appointment as notary public, cele brated the Victory two months ago bv giving a dinner to his intimate friends. He "said with glowing confidence that the appointment in sured him u bonanza in the way of fees that would defray much of the expense of the prose cution of his legal studies. He forthwith spent SlO in getting an elaborate frame for his cer tificate of appointment and bung it up in his office. Then he laid out an additional *15 in having an ornate stamp die made and prepared to hail with becoming dignity the advent, of the expected bonanza. He kickcd his heels monotonously for days on the office chair in front of a new *35 desk that he had bought upon which to place papers to receive the stamp. One of his friends hailed him as he was coming up \\ illiam street yesterday with a dis consolate look on his face. "How's tbe new office go?"

Mrs. Belknap, says the Brooklyn Eagle, while her husband waa Secretary of War, was a tall striking brunette, with a anperb presence, a handsome face and a dashing manner. It was said that her ball dresses were atartlinglv decol lete, and some of the ladies of the capital who did not possess Mrs. Belknap's special charms of figure talked so much about her gowns that the Washington correspondents took the mat ter up, and the Secretary's wife found herself a much-talked-of woman. Notwithstanding all this, Sirs. Belknap waa popular in society and her receptions were largely attended. She alao had the reputation of having the most beautiful foot of any woman in Washington. After her husband's political eclipse Mre. Belknap retired with her daughter into private life on the continent, and remained in Europe for ten years educating her children. Last March, at the inauguration of President Harrison, Mrs. Belknap and her daughter, who is a beautiful blonde of some eighteen summers, occupied rooms at the Arlington htftel, and were to bo seen every night in the dining room arrayed in evening dress. Old friends of Gen. Belknap regarded the pair with considerable interest, and they remarked with pleasure that time had dealt kindly with tlis elder lady, and that, with the exception of an added stoutness, which was not unbecoming, Mrs. Belknap was as hand Bome as ever. On the 15th of July the aleepy clerk at the Oriental hotel. Coney Island, waa shaken out of the dreamy contemplation of his two-carat diamond shirt pin by the news that upon that evening's train from New York Mrs. William Belknap, daughter and maid would arrive, and that the best rooms in the house were to be ? laced at their disposal. From that day to this [re. Balknap has been aummering at the Oriental, and has held her own as one of the lending features of the place. No sooner does she leave her room for the big bathing navilion between the Oriental and Manhattan Beach hotels than there is a quiver of excitement about the place. The male guests at both hotels betake themselvea in a body to the beach, and even the ladies, although they will not own it. are interested. It is not ao much the way Mrs. Belknap bathea that interests J these idlers of a summer'a day, but it is the clothes, or rather the lack of clothes, that she bathes in. Until Saturday last the wife | of the ex-Secretary has worn at the bath a atart lmg costume of white and red. It was a striped affair, showing her perfect form in all its grace ful curves?a little low-necked, sleeveless bod ice and a verv chort skirt were all that it con sisted of. The lady's lower limbs were incased in silk tighta. The'efTect was startling as she dashed through the waves, throwing herself upon their eresta with all the wild abandon of a water nvmph. The bald-headed old gentle mi n in the surf alsuost chuckled with delight, and tough, weather-beaten John Keegan, wbo has acted as watchman at the Manhattan bath ing pavilion for several yeara. could hardly be lieve his eyes. He took off hia glasses, rubbed the aea fog off them, looked at the fair bather again and then acknowledged that he had never aeen anything to equal bor before. To an reporter Mr. Keegan aaid: "Yon may talk about your Far Rockaway or Cape May bathiug costumes, but I will bet that there ia not one in the country that can match the I one worn by Mra, Belknap. It would not take more than one and one-quarter of a yard of goods to make the whole affair." The ladies who saw Mra. Belknap disporting herself in the wavea did not, however, seem to admire her coatume as much as the men. The latter said that the women were jealous of her. However this may be, the tAlk about the Orien tal hotel waa started, and it haa been getting more and more critical. The male visitors all took the part of Mra. Belknap; the women were all agaiust her. Being a woman of energy and great coumge, Mra. Belknap haa continued to bathe in her wonderful atriped coatume with the abbreviated aleeves and the atill more abbreviated skirt. She made up her mind that she would not let the gossips gain a victory over her, and she nlmost won the fight, but Mrs. Belknap's daughter, who is a very beautiful and accom Slished girl, did not relish the notoriety which er mother waa attaining and persuaded her to throw aside the objectionable bathing suit and wear one leaa conspicuous. The haughty Blue Orass beauty did not like to give in, but she at last consented to yield to her daughter's wish, and thia morning the bald-headed old men who Said 10 centa each for the privilege of aceing [ra. Belknap bathe were reduced almoat to a state of deaperation. She appeared on the beach in a dark blue coatume of the usual aea aide style. The women who found fault with Mrs. Belknap's striped suit were smiling and happy when an Eugle reporter viaited the bath ing pavilion at Manhattan Beach. This morn ing one alight and delicately-built girl of about forty aummera and heaven knows how many hard winters aaid to a companion in the hear ing of the scribe: "Oh. you juat ought to have seen her other dressj it was too horrid for anything."

Cigarette Smoking Englishmen. From tha Kew Tork World. Cigarette smoking is another habit which is rapidly spreading in London, though it has not yet reached the telegraph boys and becoms as much of a nuisance as In New York. Ten years ago no Englishman smoked cigarettes. Now every one who smokes carries them, and at a formal dinner they ore ae?much a matter of course as cigars. One of the singular thinga of London la that cigarettes are sola by weight. Those made of Turkish tobacco range in price from 18 cents to 87 cents per ounce, and when of the ordinary else this means about twenty nine cigarettes. They are also sold in large quantities by the box. Nearly a third of the cigarettes consumed are of American make, the rest being Turkish and either made on the continent or in Loadon. The American cigar ette made from Virginia tobacco is rapidly Bowing in favor among Englishmen and teen or twenty million are sold hers every week, and a factory Is bow being erected in London by a New York firm to snpply the local demand.

The only sign that the mailer m absent from Sheen when I went down the other day to see Lord Fifa't place, where be and the prince** are to spend their honeymoon, waa the shatters on the glaa* panel* of the front door. The ontilde t* simple and unpretend ing, closed In among trees, the walls white washed with enough of weather ?Uining to take the newness off and overgrown with irj and creeper*. I found the bell-pull after much searching among the ivy, and in dne course had the door unlocked from the inside by a trim housemaid. "Had I hi* lordahlp's authority to go orer the honss?" Having satisfied her on that score I followed her op some steps into the halL "You must be cartful how yon step on the floor," said she, -the boards are eery slippery." And in truth they were, and the rugs had an alarm ing tendency to go away with one's feet "Cameron, hi* lordship's relet and piper, fell upon them the other day. and I have slipped upon them mrself." The hall is a rich dark apartment going right from the front of the house to the back, where through the French easement is a glimpse of the extensive lawn. The walls and ceilings are panelled, there is a carved chimney piece, an eight-day clock, a number of low. easy chair* and a table With a blue and white vase with flower*. A tall screen covered with Vanity Fair caricatures, by Pelle ?nni. is something of a revelation of the highly ecorative effects of these work*. There are stags' heads on the walls, an oil picture or two, and on a table conspicuously placed, a big Ger man lithograph from a Germ&u painter's por trait of the queen,with her majestv'a autograph attached, dated from Balmoral. 1 followed the housemaid through a large opening with cur tains into the dining room. "His lordship genernlly dines in the hall," said she; "we only use the dinning room when there is I a large company." I passed through the li brary?very comfortable looking, with Japanese screens and blue and white pots?into the draw ing room, which has a bay window looking out to the lawn and a glass door on the left leading | down some steps into the conservatory. The drawing room is light and cheerful in its deco ration, as a drawing room should be, with a very beautiful plaster cornice and ceiling and a pretty chimney piece and a big mirror over. There is more than abundance of t-hairs. and wherever you turn, on tables and in odd cor- [ ners, th?re are flowers in glasses, little vase*, and. indeed, there are flower* all over the house. A very fine palui grows out of a huge blue and white pot. The curtains are of a rich Japanese pattern, giving by contrast a pretty gossamer effect to the muslin curtain* behind. The first floor consists of bed rooms. 1 went upstairs, and, turning to the right, I found my ?elf opposite his lordship's room. It has a pic ture over the door of a young lady displaying the beauties of a very ample bust, in the way young ladies are wont to do?in pictures. The bed rooms are light.'and airy, with Japan ese pattern curtains and coverings of chairs, with wall paper to match. "The house is not very large," said the housemaid; "we have only rooms for about three couples." 1 went down stairs and out through the French casement, on to the lawn, as level as a billiard table, but of u much prettier color. It is intersected with paths, in the middle of which is a little foun tain with water-lilies in the basin. And there are beds of geraniums dotted about, and more large blue and white pots with palms. There is a quaint Japanese summer house, which looks as if it were made for honeymooning in, with wicker chairs and Japanese tapestries on the walls. It is only from the lawn that you get anything like a full view of the length of the house, the view from the front being very much hidden by trees. The whole of the grounds are surrounded by a high wall, which is very artfully hidden by greenery of all sorts. Lord Fife is evidently a man of considerable taste for an autocrat, with a strong bent for Jupanese art. There are very beautiful screens and vases in all of the rooms at Sheen; indeed, such decorative effect as there is in the house is mainly dependent on them. The pictures are poor from a decorative point of view. It is a charming house, beautifully kept?small, ( perhaps, but cheerful, and no doubt comforta ble. and it only wants what to-day'* event will provide it with ?a mistres*.

A Dynamite Cap In Eddie Howard's Pocket Will Cause Uis Death. A very peculiar and ?ad accident occurred Wednesday in Brownsville. Me. Some of the young men and boy* had gathered oa the play ground in the center of the village and were engaged in a ball game. It had progressed for several innings, when Edgar 8. Howard, four teen years old, went in to bat. Almost the first ball sent to him was wildly pitched, and the players and crowd were shocked when they saw it strike him in the stomach. An ex plosion followed in an instant which en veloped him in a cloud of smoke. The boy had been near some railroad construction work which i* in progre** and had been given a dynamite cap. When he went to play ball he put the cap in his pocket and for got all about it. The ball had struck fairly upon the pocket, causing the cap to burst with terrible effect. The whole fleshy portion of the lad'* right arm was blown away, but his other injuries were even more severe, for the death deuling explosive tore into his right side, lac erating the flesh in a frightful manner. None of the spectators expected to see the little fel low taken up alive, but it was found that death had not instantly resulted. He was cairied to the house of his father, a wealthy citizen, and was breathing at last accounts, but waa not ex pected to survive long. A New World's Champion From Texas.
