EFm emiderabiv more than a year past the
business that is the mainstay of this small
tewn has been no scret, and there are f
people in Washington who do not know wha
and what Jackson City is. At one time it was
thought that there might grow up there a re
epeetable and attractive village, but all such
hoehas lng been abandoned. The town was
du laid out years ago and named in honor of
the iluserions President. but it failed to grow.
and for many years there was but one building

Suddenly and as if in a night there grew up
a imbroa village that. to my the letg, has
alrendy made itself famous. The reason its
being was a simple one. When the pod shope
were run out of the city for the first time it
was a eemparatively easy matter for the book
makers to move their shops out on 7th street
Just beyond the Boundary. and there for some
semsiderable time they did a thriving business,
soming poes em the various races at the differ

make Your bets. for the horses are at the post

There is no deception here and no effort is
made to conceal.what is going on inside. There
is no lynx-eved keeper at the door to scan the

There are several places where books are
made upon the races. but two of them are
larger and better equipped than the others, and
these have the call on popular favor. Back of
that part in each where beer. whisky and other
beverages are dtispense&in orthodox fashion
runs a large. well-lighted room.where the races
are played for all they are worth and more.
Along one side of the room is placed upon
the wall a big blackboard, and on this are writ
ten the entries and the odds on each at both the
tracks where winter racing is carried
on. It is cold work going to the races in mid
winter and lots of ople who follow the sport
for revenue ony find it much pleas
anter to do so in a big warm
room than at a bleak and dreary track.
In fact it has often been charged that these
winter tracks are kept at work in the interest
of the pool rooms. and the character of the
racing itself is not always above reproach.

gambling houses. There is no visible feverish
greed for gain, though occasionally when the

deal of talk about probable winners, and when
a man has a sure thing he goes way up in the
estimation of the crowd. Sometimes his money
goes with it and he mutters some remark about

sideboard and the young man poured out a
drak that would have answer every pur
pose for an old drinker. He drank it down and
water came Into his eyes, for it was more than 4
he had ever drank before. -
Then he started back on his long, old walk

He hated the business man almost as much
as he admired the pretty telephone girl. He
had been trying to devise some method of mak
ing trouble for the business man-of torturing
him as a man only can be tortured in acivilized
country in a civilized way. Barbarians do fairly
well in their rough, ignorant way, but it takes
a few centuries o civilization to bring people
up to the most Sendish torture.

The next day the business man's telephone t
bell rang, and when he maid "Well?" a sweet t
voice replied: "What number, please?" I
"I don't want any one," returned the bui

"0, 1 thought you rang," came pleasantly I
over the wire. 1
Five minutes later the bell rang again, and 1
the following conversatiom ensmed:
"What do you want?"
"Nothing. What did you ring me up for?"
"I didn't. What in thunder did you call me I
up for?"
"I didn't, you inspired Idiot. Ring of If you

"0. it must have been a mistake, but you
should have rang of."
"flay! Hi! hi! Hello" But there was no
answer. He gave the bell a vicious ring, trmly I
resolved to have the last wdrd, and when
"Hello!" came over the wire in afeminine voice
he barted out:
"fee here. Ive had enough of this!" '
"Sir !" returned the femmnine voice.
"0, none of that!" he roared. "You needn't

"How dare you talk to me that way, sir? r'l

There was a click as the connection was out

Afer other dining clubs bad failed, especially
hose founded an this was by Washington cor
'epondents, it smed not at all nliy that
he predictions J1 failure made for it by car
anm prophets would be justified. But it
grew with what it fed on from year to year,
tuil it is now one of the institutions of
Waskington than which there is certainly
o be tter known the country over,
or It has cshallenged the curiosity of
be United States. itssecrecy, which is
perhaps its most important ebaracteristie, we
turing, as it does, absolute freedom to its
ruests, and therefore securing their wisest and
wittiest contribution to the table talk, has
>iqued the national curiosity, at the same time
naking It impossible for any one who has not
teen at a Gridiron dinner to comprehend all Its
lelights. When it is remembered that its forty
nembets are all newspaper men with
o keen professional appreciation of the
great interest which the public would
ske in what is said by the famous men,
who sit around the Gridiron board the fact
hat the confidence of the club has never been
riolated is an eloquent answer to the loose state
ments sometimes made that newspper men,
ike women, cannot keep a secret. As a matter
of fact. oitcourse, all the secrets of Washington,
ike all the secrets ef the rest of the world, are
ooner or later in the minds of newspaper men,
who have proved by a thousand instances that
hey are then morsecret than ever.
Naweprta win wino zzkr sous.
As confdants newspaper aen are rivaled
only by the confessional. So it was not difE
alt for the Gridiron to accomplish the para
lox of giving a public dinner privately. What
tver self-denial was involved has been richly
tompensated for by the eloquence, the wit, the
immor, the reminiscences which have Sowed
o freely under the rose. It is, of
ourse, to be regretted by those who have en
oyed these delightfpl dinners that an invisible
)homograph could not have recorded all that
was said for the benefit of posterity, for there
would probably be no better way of giving the
wentieth century an idea oif the cleverest tIble
alk of our time. As it is, about all the gen
ral public ever knows is that there has been
I Gridiron dinner, for all that ever
oppears in the newspapers about it is at the
nost the skeleton of the feast-menn, decora
ions, music and the names of guests. Another
md only less important characteristic of the
dub is indicated in the other branch of its un
written law, "the ladies are always, the re
>orters never. present at Gridiron dinners."
'or the Gridiron protests, not only against the
edious formalities of conventional dinners,
out against all the old dinner traditions which
nvolve "stories that are as broad as they are
ong." There is much fun at Gridiron dinners,
out it is fun pure and simple. It is not strange
hat such a sucessful institution, which gives
linners perfect from every point of view,
hould have many imitators throughout the
ountry, but none of them really rivals
he Gridiron, which continues to be sui
eneri. Most of its rivals indulge in practical
okes as well as formal sneeclies, all of
vh .ch will be published in the morning news
Papers the next day. Thieir entertainments
re very funny, very picturesque and very in
erebting to read about, but they are not like
he Gridiron dinner. The Gridiron idea is to
oroject the cleverest private dinner party on
hescaleof a public dinner party, keeping it
till private, and adding to its witty and
tumorous table talk conventional and uncon
entional music-all carried on with grace as
well as genuine vigor;and this is the way it is
lone at the sign of the Gridiron. The Gridiron
lub has no other avowed object than the
-promotion of good fellowship;' yet, perhaps,
ecause of that fact, it has an influence such as
to other similar brganization has ever
ad, and which has enabled it
o render signal and substantial
ervice not only to the whole corps
of Washington correspondents, but to news
mper men everywhere, by tie promotion of
etter relations between public men and tWe
>res. It as not too much to say, considering
he importance of these relations, that it has
'ulflled a patriotic duty to the whole country
y so doing. The club as a club makes no
uch pretensions. its only boast is that it gives
he bust dinners in the country, its only ambi
ion to give better ones from year to year. It
s in the line of its pleasure that it has aocom
ilished its duty.

From the Detroit Fe Prom.
"Kitty, what have you been doing eM the
The young housekeeper bad invited a few
friends to take dinner in the new oosy little
home. It was her Arst experience in a com
pany dinner and as for Kitty she had no ex
perience whatever and had to be drilled in do
mestic tactics like a raw recruit.
The wedding silver was brought down for the
irst time, taken out efitb pretty cases and laid
upon the sideboard.
Then the little housewife went to decorate
and straighten up the parlor. It was fseinat
ing work and she lingered over it.
In the meantime Kitty, left to herself, pro
ceeded to ianspect the silver.
When the young mistress returned to the te
gion where the one family servant aes GUp
posed to be making things happen and found
nothing done as she had ordered, Kitty said:
1 had to scrub that dirt of the spoons
She had so red of the oxide from the wed
ding spoons. \
It was interesting to see the young husband
taking soup that day. He raised the spoon to
his face, then looked at his wife, who sent him
a little telegram under the table, a kind of sub
domestic communion of souls which he was
just beginning to understand. somewhat awk
wardly, as is the way of a man.
The dishes for the different coursee bad al
been arranged for Kitty to bring on at the
Proper time. The moment the little bell on
the dining table rang Kitty seized the pile of
dishes nearest her hand and. rushing with
them Into the dining room. held them up be
fore her, and with a questioning nod of the
head from the lady to the plates and back again
she ascertained if they were the proper ones
for that course.
After this pantomime had been enacted sev
eral times, the mistress answering by nodding
yes or no, as the case required. trying at the
same time to conceal her annoyance as well as
her amusement, she fnaul broke down and
"made a clean breast of it.'
"There's no use trying to be qualityandhave
a dinner in courses with such atservant. I may
just as well 'let you in,' as the boys say, to the
iun of it."
Whereupon there was a jolly good time, and
the young husband declared that their first
company dinner as housekeepers would live
longer in history than if it had been according
to the regulation and no mistakes.
The spoons were sent to be reoxidised.
Good Drawing Essential to suemseefil Aft
Allston' Advie,.
From Seribner's
- A painter may be blest with every gift of na
ture, but unless he has acquired the art of de
sign he can never express himself. If you
would not be tormented by a consciousness of
having noble and beautiful conceptions to
which you cannot give birth, you must give
much of your time to drawing. For this pur
pose I should recommend a course of study
somewhat different from what is generally
pursued. I would devote my attention prin
cipally to outline. It is perhaps well enough
to learn how to make a finished drawing, but
when you have once done that your time had
better be spent in making drawings of
the fgure in highly studied outline
only. My own practice is to make a
finished outline always before touching
the brush to canvas. I draw the out
lines of such figures as I intend to drape, mak
ing out the figure as nicely as If it were to be
painted naked. I take a large, rough piece of
common chalk, which makes a broad mark,
and then with my finger or a bit of bread I can
rub out a portion and thus get a little more or
little less much better than by using a fine
point. When I have arranged the contour of
my figure or head I trace the final outline with
umber. I would recommend your studying
your outline as highly as if it were not to be
distur bed, but when you paint use your brush
as freely as if you had no outline to go by.
Tisii is the only way to avoid the hardness of
effect which is apt to arise fromi a ciose study
or the outline. I frequently paint my figures
over the outline and let my background en
croach upon the contour of the ilgure again
several times ini the course of the painting.
The process of shading with chalks or pen
cils is, more strictly speaking, painting, but it
is paintmg with the very worst of materials. I
know of no better exercise ini drawing than the
study of Fiaxnman's "Illustrations;" and I would
make it a rule to copy two or three figures from
them every day. ibis, of course, I recom
niend as an initiatory study. After you have
acquired a readiness of giving the air and spirit
of the iigurc. preserving the proportions, you
will then have recourse to nature and the an
tique with great advantage.

The pacable outlook in the Chilent mattes
Is accepted here as practically closingte "in
eldent." As I wrote a fortnight ago, s onto
here has really talked war or believed tha
hostilities were imminent. A few -hot heads"
have tried to inflame public sentiment, but
with a complete lack of success. I have yet to
hear a sigle man say that he wanted war with
Chile, and am sore that any such war would
be profoundly unpopular. fhe universal ox
pression is that Chile has takes a line of on
duct which we must respect, and which pute
her betore the world iw tully as satisfactory a
light as our own government.
Two or three weeks ago I spoke of the prep
arations which the Trunk lines were making
for accelerating their passenger schedules.
The latest development in this line came to
the surface today in a dispatch from Washing
ton, saying that Vice President Webb had
called upon Mr. ]ell to say that the Centr.l
were willing to put on a mail train which
should make the time between New York and
Chicago in seventeen and one-half hour.
Practically. this would be to extend the present
time schedule from Buffalo westward. It would
mean an average speed of fifty-two miles an
hour, not counting stoppages, and would push
the record ahead of anyihing done yet. Ihe
only thing to compare with it would be
that short spurt over the Pennsylvania
system, to which I referred in my
previous letter. The fast express service
between New York and Buffalo has proved
completely successful. There has not been ai
accident of any sort, and the motion is not di.
agreeable. The service is well patronized
and evidently the schedule is popular and
destined to become a permanent feature. We
may, therefore, regard ourselves as within the
epoch when a mile a minute is the standard
rate for the best express service. As I re
marked in the previous letter this is by no
means regarded as the acme of speed, as all
the Great Trunk lines are considering seriously
the practicabiity of an eighty-mile-an-hour
speed, while a speed of 100 males an hour in ne
longer regarded as absolutely absurd.

We do not look for much romance en a mud
scow, but the adventures of the poor wretches
who were blown out to ofa in last Tuesday's
gale on the "Dumps" were as thrilling as any
thing which Clark Russell could Uagine. The
rescue of some of these Door fellows made the
whole town happy today, but there is the great
eel anxiety to know about those who are still
missing. The probability is that some, if not
all, are lost. Even If they are finally recov
ered, their sufferings will long remain a tradi
tion of horror. A leeshore is supposed to be
the most dreaded danger to the sealaring man,
but it now appears that an off-shore gale has
its victims as wel as one that dings the salen

Quite a group of eapitalists, newspaper men
and others leave tomorrow nightfor Delgevile
the picturesque little village on the south face
of the Adirondack wilderness, where Alfred
Dolge hem developed hts wool-felt industry -and
put into practie his famous viewa on the die
tribution of surplus wages. Every year about
this time there is a notable gathering at which
Mr. Dolge announces the reeult of the year and
distributes his awards with a kind but diacrim
inainig hand. For it is the very foundation of
the Dolge syatem that the laborer must earn
his extra wage by superior excellence in
the performanye of dute. It in just
here that -ir. Dolge carefully diseriminates
between his own system and wfaat Is known as
profit sharing, he taking the ground that undeir
the latter system the indolent and ignorant
share in the rewards due to their more indus
trious or Caliable co-laborer. He has there
fore devised a science of wages which rewards
the laborer according to his reeord, and the re
suit has been quite remarkable. The systm
however, does not depend entirely upon indi
vidual merit, as it is supplemented by comma
nul features, such am public acho'ols, museus
and tho like, which. is Mr. Dolge's own pharase,
are part of eapital's insurance against ilao
deprc'ation. The Adirondacks are scarcely
a pleasure resort in midwinter, yet this
annual gthering is so unique and en important
as to cect generally quite a notable company.
Mr. Dolge himself is one of the most interest
lug of men, having risen by his own eharatmi
and industry froam a poor and obscure insmi
grant lad to a place among ths great emptainm ei
labor. The lo".ain t Dogvis wspad

The History of the Meaican War by Gem.
Caldmus M. Wilcos, referred to in the se l
mans not long ago an shortly to appear. is new
beke the public, and proves to be a valable
contribution to our historical literature. Gen.
Wilcox devoted to the work many years of
faithful labor, ineluding a careful eempartsou
of the ocial records of both the United SWIae.
an# Mexic.. governmeste, and Isepections of
the principal battlefields and ...es described
in it. A perusal of the book cannot fal to
awaken freak interest in that starrangcoutest, of
nearly halt a century ago. of which the present
generation know. se little, but whome fruits
were of such vast advantage to our country.
But this t not its only nor its chief Value.
What will epecially interest the readers of the
present day is Gem. Wilcox's graphic account
of the subsequent career of the young ofico'e
who participated in that struggle, following
their ourne 'aithfuny from that time until
they won new 6A wider reputatAone as leader
of t os forces in the late civil war.
The volume is profasely illustrated with per
traits of the principal participants, and piane
of the several batte flekta, and contains, more
over, a complete rsoter of all the Amermcan oi
em engaged in the contest, whether in the
regular army, the volunteer foroe. er the navy.
Kim Sidsmore, whom book em Alaka is
become sa inseparable companion of every
body who visits that wonderful coantry, he
furnished in her "Jinrikieh. Days in Japan" a
volume which bids fair to be equally Useful and
attractive to travelers to that most charming of
all the countries of the far east. and which is
every year becoming more and more an object
of antere..t to suriats of all nationaities. Mis
Seidmore does not attempt to be profound,
but contents herself with descriptions of the
country, its people and tieir daily life: and
herein lies the charm of the bu*, which as
bright and entertaining from tLe firt page to
the Inst. Its value is enhanced, too. by a num
ber of illustrations which add greatly to the
interest of the text, and a oomplete index.
A substantial service has been done to his
torical literature by Dr. Tor-er in the publica
tion of Washington's Journal of his Journey
over the Mountains of Vu gin whale servey
ing for Lord Fairfax, in 1747-4. The task Dr.
Toner set himself was to reprodue the Journal
with literal exactness as to abbreviations. the
ma of capital letter., punctuation, spelling.
etc., and it has been performed with intelli
gence and Adelity, and Lhe vaLue of the work is
greati increased by copious note., which
bear evidence in every line of patiens research
and a thorough comprehension of the matters
in hand, He was fortunate, too, in Anding a
publither so capable of ccondang the pureone
heohd in view, so that the volume is attraclive
in a double seuse-for the matter it contain,.
and for the mann.r in which it is psumasted, as
well. -
A charming lile volume, to literary etyle as
well as in typographical apvearanc and lillas
trations. is "One Summer in Hawaii," by Hales
Mather, an aecoisplieed lady, now visiting in
Washington. The author spent several months
in the mandwich Island group, with exceptional
facilities for seeing ats scenery and etudying its
people, and the result is a series of graphic
and delightful pictures of life in that attractave
"cluster of emeralde, rimmed an by turquoise
