THE HOLIDAY TRADE.
Christmas Purchaser* Taking Advan
tage of the Weather.
Many are taking advantage of the delightful
weather for Christmas ahopping and the buai
neaa streets present a brilliant appearance.
No city is better provided with large retail es
tablishments conducted by enterprising man
agers. The stores are filled with goods of the
richest qualities, and all the novelties of the
year that can be found in any of the great mer
cantile centers may be purchased here. Pru
dent people are making their shopping expedi
tions now in order to avoid the crush that im
mediately precedes Christmas. They are also
consulting the advertising columns of The
I Star and saving much time by getting posted ;
in advance as to the places where they can find 1
just what they want. The Stab assists its
readers also in making up thoir minds on the
; questions what and where to buy by publishing
notices from day to day of business houses
j where they can be sure of finding goods or tine
j quality and prices that are reasonable.
Where can I get one of those beautiful ac
cordeou skirts done? That is very simple
madam. Von must take yonr goods to
905 1'" street, where you will find a branch office
of Situs's Plaitiho Establishment of Balti
Sanders A Staymax, 934 F street northwest,
are agents for some of the leading styles of
pianos and organs, and are consequently good
people to consult at this season, when buyers
want to get the very best for the very least.
Their list includes the Decker, Fischer, Weber
and Ivers A Fond pianos and the Estey organs.
Each of these names is a guarantee in itself.
In the Sun building,1315 F street northwest,is
located the Schtltz gas fiixture and art metal
company, the name of which implies its line of
business. They have many new designs, goods
of the best quality, and claim to offer very low
At 432 9th street northwest is the large gas
fixture and plumbing establishment of S.S.
Shedd A Bro. , where fine gas fixtures, piano
lamps wnh shades in lmeu, lace and satin, and
a large and varied assortment of goods in
wh ich they deal can be found. This is one of
Washington's old and reliable concerns.
One who is hunting for a suitable gift for a
gentleman will find a great variety of articles
of fine quality at Hall's, 903 F street The
stock of gents' furnishings is of great variety,
including all the latest styles.
There are not many things more expensive
than furnishing a house. If you have not the
ready money Gbogas's credit house, 739 and
741 7th street northwest, will help you out by
offering liberal terms on an I O U.
Just opposite the new Stab building on 11th
street is the Noot establishment. The name
of Noot is an old and familiar one with Wash
ington lady shoppers. He now offers rare
bargains for Christmas in fancy wearing
apparel, millinery and art goods at "half
regular prices." A special sale of dolls is also
advertised. He evidently intends to give his
patrons the benefit of some rare bargains.
Mb. Thomas Bussell, at 1213 Pennsylvania
avenue, deals in imported wines, brandies and
cigars, and offers all the leading brands of
champagne wines at New York prices. Pem
broke pure rye whiskey is a specialty. It is
the kind alleged to cheer and not inebriate?if
one does not imbibe too much of it. Another
specialty is Havana and Key West cigars.
The Elphonso Yocnqs Company, 428 9th
street northwest, is an attractive place to the
housewife or the ' man o' the family" who
looks after the larder and store room. " Every
thing is fresh and nice and to be had at "posi
tive bargains." Their line of canned goods,
they assert, cannot be surpassed anywhere in
variety, quality and cheapness. They give es
pecial attention to fine brauds of flour.
It is not more a matter as to the where
withal we shall be fed than as to what we shall
wear. The question can not be more easily
answered than by calling at Weyl's "Onb
Price Clothi.no House," at 311 7th street, and
examining his large assortment of overcoats,
business aud dress Buits. His stock embraces
all grades and all sizes, both for men and bovs.
No one need leave without being outfitted in
the best style and at a reasonable price.
One of the handsomest grocery establish
ments in the city is that of N. W. Buroheli*
1325 F street northwest, aud none surpass it in
the wide range of its contents, which includes
every table delicacy aud everything necessary
to the concoction of plain or daiuty edibles.
Nothing not strictly first-class is offered for
sale and all goods are warranted pure and
fresh. The concern is an old one in years and
reputation, but keeps abreast of tha times in
everything pertaining to the business.
Among the young and pushing business men
of the city is Mr. Frank M. Lewis, Jeweler aud
silversmith at 1215 Pennsylvania avenue north
west. The business is an old aud well estab
lished one, but under the management of
young blood is forging right along with the
leading houses of the day. Besides diamonds,
watches, clocks, tables, bronzes, piano lamps,
sterling silver and fiue silver-plated ware. Ac.,
Ac., a specially large assortment of novelties of
every description is offered for the holiday
season at prices that will surely make them
Johnsox, Garner A Co., of 636 Pennsylvania
avenue, have lots of holiday goods. Novel and
cheap are a great many of the features which
are being bought up rapidly by an apprecia
tive public. Handkerchiefs are offered in im
mense variety, and there seems to be no end to
the new things in hosiery, gloves, umbrellas,
Smyrna rugs, art squares, si.ks. woolen dress ' I
goods, flaunt I and Balmoral skirts, wool |
blankets and the thousand uud one othor use
I ful articles to be found in this store.
The social season at the national capital has
opened up agaiu and the dress suit is in great i
| demand. As his been recently remarked, !
"there is no city in America where so many j
nieu own full'dress suus in proportion to the
population as in Washington." There are a
good many men who have not yet procured !
the necessary dress suits and they may be J
wondering where they can purchase the correct
thing at prices which will not wreck their '
finances. B. Kobinhon A Co. of 909 Peunsylva- 1
uia avenue have the suits and will sell tliem at
a figure that is within the reach of every society
This is a practical age, so there is nothing
extraordinary in the suggestion that a pair of
shoes would make a nice Christmas present;
and if a pair ot shoes, why not Bl'Bis shoes? At
liill F street the stock is very large, and is
of that grade of good* with which the uauie of j
Bcrt has been closely associated. Fine shoes I
aud slippers for people of all sizes and sexes I
are offered at standard prices. A good place j
to spend some of your Christmas money is at j
The Philadelphia Store has a great display
of seasonable goods, suitable for presents to I
young, middle-aged and old. Toys of all de
scriptions at all prices occupy a great deal of
space and so does the exhibit and reserve stock
ot Dresden, Worcester, Spode, Crown aud Bo
hemian ware. In fancy goods the assortment
is ail that any shopper could desire. Hand
made lace bed set* are specialties just now and
so are the damask line a table sets and towels.
Prices are reasonable aud customers will be

principal iugredients, so to speak, in the fancy
work, w hich makes its appearauce at this sea
son of the year, is ribbon, aud those who need
it and have the ??wherewithal" can get just
what they want at 1'krky's, at the corner of 9th

novelties are extremely rich in material aud
color. Especial attention is invited to a superb
line of surah sashes, with knotted silk fringe.

There is many a boy in this city whose pa
rents conld make him happy a week from next
Wednesday morning by giving him a nice suit
of clothes.' Lots ot boys would rather be so
treated than to be the recipients of toys and
candy. Ihey know how a boy's social standing
amoug other boys is often affected by his wear
ing apparel, and they like to be aa near the top
as pouible. Saks A Company have all the bovi'
clothinx that auybody is looking for. and this
is the time to take the boys around and get
garmeuts which will fit them. If the boy
doesn't need a suit of clothes there's nothing
the matter with an overcoat. The stock of
clothing for "children of * larger growth" is
immense, and anythiug yon need in the outfit
ting line?not forgetting bats and shoes?can
be had in that great building ou the corner of
7th street and Market Space.
Lots of inducements are offered to those
who do (hopping to do it at Back's, and to do
it now. The dealer as well aa the barer is, in
convenienced by the great rash which alwajra
comes two or three days immediately ahead of
Christmas, so now the lire store keeper does
his best to entice customers around a few days
earlier than the great world's holiday. Um
brellas constitute one of the many feature*
which are set forth at Bauh's, and there are
few Christmas presents more acceptable than
a good umbrella. Pictures?framed pictures?
at prices astonishingly low, is a new line and
one which Bau* expects will beoome promi
nent Etchings and engravings, many of
them reproductions of celebrated specimens
of artistice effort, call for inspection. Lots of
other thing* suitable for gifts are to be found
at the popular shopping place?Back's.

Lansbuboh A Bbo. have made a perfect won
derland out of their mammoth store, a wilder
n"ss of loveliness, a labyrinth of gorgeousness.
Their counters and their shelves are full of
bargains, their price lists are amazing, and woe
betide the unlucky purchaser who enters their
doors for he is bound to be tempted on every
hand with such nn array as soon causes a fall
ing away in a full purse. Yet he is apt to be
fortunate in the end, for he emerges with his
arms full of the very things he wants and his
heart is as light as his purse. An examination
here of the host of attractions would be out of
place and useless, for this paragraph is in
tended merely to call attention to the fact that
the Lanhburohs are just where they always are,
in the van. Their column advertisement in an
other part of the paper will serve as a good in
dex to what their store contains.
Wines for the table and for cooking are one
of the adjuncts to a Christmas dinner, and one of
the places to obtain them in varying styles and
for varying prices is at the new store of H. A.
Seligson, 1200 and 1202 Pennsylvania avenue.
Mr. Seligson has recently made a 20 per cent
reduction in the prices of all his stock and is so
well satisfied with the results that he proposes
to continue the plan indefinitely. Imported or
domestic brands of wines, cordials, whiskies,
Ac., are found at this establishment in the
greatest profusion. California and Virgini <
wines are one of Mr. Selioson's specialties, and

If there is any one article of food which
needs to be good and pure it is butter, and those
who appreciate this fact are frequently dis
turbed because they cannot get what they

Ten cents on every dollar is a good deal to

of the advantage* offered to those who deal
with Heilbucn, at 402 7th street. The stock is
composed of the products of the leading

THE DEAD LETTER SALE.
d Miscellaneous Collection of Uncalled
for Packugea Under the Hammer.
The annual auction sale of articles accumu
lated in the dead-letter office began at Rat
eliffe, Darr A Co.s on Pennsylvania avenue
yesterday. The walls of the maiu room were
lined with shelves filled with packages
jlosely wrapped in heavy envelopes.
K large crowd was present and the bidding was
juite brisk. The sale partook somewhat of
the nature of a lottery, for it was impossible to
tell what the goods were beyond the meager
idea given by the catalogue. Some were pos
libly of value, but even the catalogue
baa most of the articles described ss "cheap or
damaged." It is more than likely that the salo
will realize more than if all the goods were
placed out for examination. A package of |
Christmas cards, quality and quantity j
unknown, brought 75 cents, while one !
marked "damaged" brought 55. A child's i
dressed doll, which may bave been a torn rag
baby or an elegant wax beauty, was thought to
be worth il.30. on the chance of its being the
latter, and lot 72, described as a box of copper
rivets, cork fasteners and B^mples of
twine, was considered cheap at 70
cents. Twenty-five "cheap cigars" brought
55 cents, while a similar box of unknown qual- i
ity went at 75 cent*. Due pair of ludy's cheap !
slippers and some old damaged clothing, size (
mid character unknown, were sold to a lady for
80 cents, and seven yards of calico, two cheap
handkerchiefs and a flannel skirt were taken bv
another for 70 cents.

A GIPSY A8 A DETECTIVK.
How Jim 'Owel Robbed the Camp of the
KoT#r* ??xt WM Pursued ud Captured.
Jim Howell aliaa 'Owel or aay other name by
which hia acqua'ntancea care to eall him by
wm in the Police Court yesterday afternoon
for robbing hia gipsy employer. When the
gipaaea were paasing through Virginia some
montha ago Jim had nothing to keep him at
home and ao he went with them and made him*
?elf generally useful about the camps. Corfleld,
his employer, thought a good deal of him on
account of hia tuefolneaa and trusted him with
everything about the camp. Several weeks
ago Corfield'a followers came here and camped
in Berry a woods, just beyond Qlenwood ceme
tery. Corfleld thought nothing of leaving Jim
about the camp when he came to the city, for
he never doubted his honesty. The latter
however, knew that Christmaa waa close at
hand and he wanted to enjoy the holidaya ac
cording to his usual custom. He alwaya eave
presents to his family and sweetheart and he
had no notion whatever of departing from the
custom this year.
Jim hardly knew how he waa going to raise
the required fun la, but he aoon learned where
the camp treasury was located. It was in Cor
flold'a wagon, and last Wednesday he had an
excellent opportunity to avail himself of the
knowledge. He promptly took advantage of
this opportunity and secured *55. He did so
well the first day without being caught that he
thought be would try it again tlie next day. He
- ? .*?? lhat tlme he ?enured $675." With
S < JO of his employer's money lie was fullv satis
fied to take his chances. That was Thursday
afternoon and he disappeared from the camp,
tiia mysterious disappearance was followed by
an investigation. Ihen it was that Corfleld
first discovered the robbery. He hastened to
the second police station and notified the
Pi ei ..TelePhone messages giving a descrip
tion or the negro were sent in all directions,
but Jim managed to elude the officers and
crossed luto Virginia.
At Alexandria he saw some policemen and
says he talked with one of them. He pur
chased new clothiug, lived well and then went
to Portsmouth. Va. Corfleld had no idea or
trusting to the good luck of an officer arresting
his man, so he went directly to Portsmouth
himself in pursuit of Jim. There he told the
police of his misfortune and went out in search
th.e .f??>tive. He was walking along the
street with the crowd of Christmas shoppers
when suddenly his eyes fell upon the fugitive.
Jim saw him too and turued his faoe, but
Corfleld touched him on the shoulder and said:
"How are you?"
Jim was so surprised that for a moment he
could scarcely si.eak. but he finally managed
to Kay that he did not feel very well.
"What did you do with the money?" the
negro was asked.
After some hesitation he snid he was robbed
of it in Alexandria, but Corfleld did not believe
wA8toryL*I,d H0 plaot'd him uuder arrest,
without the assistance of an officer "Jim" w \s
taken to the mayor's office, where over
was found on him. '
Detective Riff, having been notified, wont
there with a Police Court warrant. He had .'>o
requisition, but the warrant was good a^d
jj"" .,w,i3 g'ven a free trip back to this cii-V.
Xhen the previous order of iliiugs was reversed
and the gipsev came with him. His clothilg
and presents purchased with the stolen calh
were also brought back.
Judge Miller yesterday afternoon held tiie
prisoner for the action of the grand jury asid
committed him to jail in default of ?1,000 bail.

Lisbon says: A copy of the petitiou forwarded
to Secretary Blaine by the widow of Col. Ed
ward McMurdo, once of Kentucky, who died in
London May last, in which she asks tho inter
vention of the United States government on
account of tho seizure of the Delagoa Bay rail
way, has been received by United States Min
Mrs. McMurdo claims damages of ?760.000.
Secretary Blaine instructed Minister Loriug to
declare to the Portuguese government that the
forfeiture of the Delagoa Bay railroad and the
Confiscation of the property of American citi
zens was unwarrantable, and that the United
States would expect restoration of tho property
or indemnification for the loss.
Secretary Blaine's staU meut has been laid
be I ore the Portuguese government. The British
minister at Lisbon has received instructions
from Lord Salisbury to present tho chums of
the English bond holders holding debenture
bonds under the company organized as the
Delagoa Bay and East African railway.
The Herald correspondent had an interview
w'', ^?n'10rBarrosgoineB, Portuguese minister
ot toreigu affairs, Saturday. He said- -Since
the gpvernmenU of Great Britain and the
United States have intervened in the matter
we do not deny that iudemuitv is due Mrs Mc
Murdo as representing the company. That is
a settlement of the mi J or point; the details of
the amount can be settled hereafter. I con
sider the question qu.te settled." S^nhor Bar
rosgomes seems to doubt Col. McMurdo having
ever been offered for his property in the com
pany the Rums mentioned in the petition Min
ister Loriug, however, holds proof that this is

The Man Who Blew Out the Gaa.
?From the U^Jtimure American
Major Martin of Texas, in speaking to a
friend of hia said: "Everybody used to have a
great laugh on me two years ago because they
eaid I had not sense enough to turn out the
gas, but blew it out. At the aame time." aaid
he, "I notice my colleague, Mr. Milla. who has
?nHDJ}ere iD C?n?reM ??me eighteen year.,
*2.900 bvlllnr ?Ut the ?*"? loKt ?*???*
.2, J00 by sign ug receipts for salary which he
never received. The major then took a list of
inauUteih? del?KilUou and uamed each
man, tailing the number of years he had been
*ud tho *mouut he had lost by
u,?! ;? defalcation, Finally, coming down to
Buck K.lgore, he aaid: "He never blew out
the gas, but, although faring better than anv
mau in tho delegation he lost about $350 i
call your attention to the fact that the man
who blew out the gaa waa overdrawn four
days pay when the bust-up came."

DIB GRIPPE HAS COME.
The European Sneese Makes IU Appear
ance In New York.
The New York board of health in notified
yesterday morning that there were three cases
of influenza in the city. Thy > are the first
oases of the threatened epid/mic from acroee
the water which hate ueen reported in New
York. It is stated that eight oases bare been
reported to the health board, and they are all
in one family. The first victim, a young lady,
was taken down on Thursday last. It is sap
posed that she contracted the disease from a
family who returned from Europe about ten
days ago. Her first symptom was vertigo,
speedily followed by headaohe and chills. Then
she became deathly sick with pains in her
limbs and muscles. This was succeeded by
bronchial oatvrh, soreness of the throat and
coughing, followed by a high fever and an ex
ce< dingly rapid pulse, which at times reached
liO to the minute. Since then seven othet
members of tbe family have been attacked by
the disease. In all the cases tlie symptoms are
said to be identical. The health officers say
they are not surprised at its appearance here.
It is not dangerous, but if it tends to become
epidemic all cases will be quarantined. The
treatment is tbe spraying of the affected mem
brane freely and frequently with a solution of
quinine and the internal administration of
quinine, belladonna and camphor.
THE VICTIMS is ECROFK.
The new disease is epidemic in Paris. It has
attacked all classes and conditions. Nothing
since tbe Eiffel tower bas so absorbed public
attention *8 this mysterious malady that has
swooped down U]>on the gay capital from Russia
and today holds not less than one hundred thou
sand Parisians in its auuoying but happily
harmless clutches. In lieriin a quarter of a
miiliou people are afflicted, and Prof. Von
Le>den thinks the situation not unattended by
danger, as advices from I barkow declare tbe
epidemic of typhus fevt r there followed close
upon tbe influenza. Dr. Albert Robin of the
Academie de Medicin, expressed himself as fol
low*: "This disease is known as influenza, or
more commonly in France as la grippe. Five
days ago I had my first case, and siuce then I
have treated at least twenty patients. Unques
tionably the epidemic will continue to spread.
How far it is impossible to say, but there is
HO OCCASION rOB SERIOUS ALARM.
"An ordinary case of influenza is not to be
dreaded more than a severe cold. Its symp
toms are unmistakable. They are headache,
pains in the eyes, soreness all over the body,
as it one had been beaten, loss of appetite, a
feverish condition and a general sense of lassi
tude and discomfort. These iienerul symptoms
are apt to be followed by various local troubles,
such as a bronchial attack, cold in tbe bead,
sore throat, diarrhoea, sometimes by pleurisy
or pneumonia. Tbe only real (Linger is pre
sented in the last two cases, which can usually
be guarded against by proper care.
AIV UNDISCOVERED MICROBE DORS IT.
As to the cause of the disease medical science
is practically at sea. We can, to be sure, tell
the public that it is due to the ravages of an
undiscovered microbc. but why the epidemic
should sweep across Europe one year ami theu
remain unknown for a decade is beyond our
power to explain
"The theory hag been advanced that influ
enza is the forerunner of cholera, but I regard
that as pure nonsense. It is true that several '
times in the present century an influenza epi
demic bas been closely followed by a visitation
of cholera. It is also true that several times iu
the same century there has been an cp:d<mic
of influenza with no cholera following it, just
as there have been epidemics of cholera w ith
no influenza preceding. In fact, the two dis
eases are so utterly dissimilar as to make
auy such sequence all but impossible, and any
such occasional instances of their simultaneous
appearance must be regarded as mere coinci
dences with no deeper significance.
"In tho matter of treatment the classic reme
dies arc sulphate of quinine or bromo-hydrate
of quinine, but recently a physician of Bacca
rat has strongly urged the use of tannin. Per
sonally I would recommend a prescription con
taining sulphate of quinuie, tanum and opium,
the latter being most valuable in relieving tho
pains which are felt all over the body."
The Pan-Americans in Gotham.
The delegates to the Pan-American congrcss
reached New York yesterday afternoon from
Washington and were at once driven in carri
ages to the city halt. The party consisted of
fifty-seven gentleman and twenty-four ladies,
and the latter went direct to the Fifth Avenue
hotel. The delegates were under the escort of
the central entertaining committee of which
O. N. Bliss is chairman. In tbe governor's
room Mayor Grant received the visitors. After
the delegates had been presented to him by
Mr. Bliss the mayor made an address of wel
come. At the conclusion of the mayor's speech
Mr. F. C. Zegarra of Peru stepped forward,
and iu a few well-chosen remarks expressed
thanks for the hospitality extended the dele
gates. Tho delegates afterward re-entered
their carriuges und were driven to the Fifth
Avenue hotel. The delegates remain here
until Thursday. ?
Ballot Reform in 3Iaryiand.
From the Baltimore Herald.
In Maryland the intelligence, integrity, and
common sentiment of honest men demand the
enactment of a law containing the essential
features of the secret ballot. Both parties
represented in the legislature solemnly prom
ised it before the late election, and the people
look to the members of the assembly for tbe i
fulfillment of those pledges. This is one of the
questions which it will not do to trifle with.
We believe that the legislator who opposes the
enactment of this measure will commit politi
cal suicide, and will receive, as he wdl de
serve, tbe execration of the good people of this
commonwealth. We are informed that two or
three bills are in course of preparation looking
to the inauguration of this reform.
An Iron Bolt from the Skies.
From the Louisville Courier-Journal.
A remarkably fine specimen of meteoric iron
has just been received at the North Carolina
state must u n from Rockingham county. Its
greatest length is twelve inches, with an aver
age breadth of eight inches aud it is about two
inches thick. Its general shape is flat, though
somewhat concave on one side aud convex on
the other, as if broken off on the oi'ter surface
of a rounded and larger mass. The specimen
is coatt'd with a thick crust of dark brown rust
and weighs 25J? pounds.
Englishmen Buy 750,000 Acres of Land
The biggest timber laud deal ever made in
the south has been consummated. A London
syndicate has bought 750.000 acres in Alabama
and West Florida, paying tlO per acre for the
tract. The details of the trade were arranged
in New York a few days ago. W. J. Yankirk
negotiated the deal for Chipley and others of
Alabama who owned the property. The names
of the London capitalists could not be learned,
but the trade is said to be a bona tide one and
will take over (6,000,000 into Alabama.
From Tragedy to Grim Farce.
From the St. Louis Uepubllc.
"It was seven years ago," said Mr. C. R. H.
Davis, "that I saw Justice turn from tragedy to
faroe in a twinkling. It was in one of those
pine board court houses of tbe mining regions
that L as foreman of a jury, led my colleagues
out, and with long face pronounced the verdict
of guilty of murder in the first degree upon the
prisoner. Then I sat down, my chair tilted
aguinst the window, and listened to the stern
decree of the oourt, 'to bang by the neck until
"Just then three pals of the condemned man
walked in with load*, d guns and the sentence
was never finished. I dropped back through
the window, tbe court followed and the pris
oner has never been seen to this day."
Dr. Beth Paucoast Dead.
Dr. Beth Pancoast, well known as a student
of occultism and the mystical sciences of the
east, died of heart disease yesterday morning
at his residence in Philadelphia. He was a
lesding homaepathist and at one time held pro
fessorships in the Philadelphia female college
and the Pennsylvania medical college. In 1877
he published "Tbe Cabala," the first work of
its kind in the English language, and he has
been at work for several years on a more ex
tensive work on occultism, which is still un
published. He was sixty-six years old.
Operation on Barrett's Throat.
An entirely successful surgical operation was
performed upon Lawrence Barrett yesterday
morning in Boston by Dr. Maurice E. Richard
son. It consisted of some fifty lymphatie
glands of the throat. For several years Mr.
Barrett has suffered intermittently from a
swelling of the glands and. although it did not
interfere apparently with his work, it was con
sidered best that the cause of his disfigurement
should be removed. Dr. Richardson states that
the operation* was a long one, but Mr. Barrett's
general health is excellent and he rallied splaa
