Bargain Friday Means A Busy Friday. ORE and more women are coming to the full 1 realization of what these Bargain Fridays mean.

Even When It is a Bore It Gives Pleasure. From the Philadelphia PnlilK- ledger. "I am tired of this fashion of bowing to every one that you have ever met," said the girl who had Just returned from a long walk "It's a nuisance and a farce. It rreaiis nothing and becomes fearfully mo notonous. Bowing to your friends is all light, but constantly Jerking your head to the slightest acquaintance Is very tiring. Take for Instance the acquaintances with whom you have not exchanged a word F:nee your primary school days. You know it would be snobbish and hateful not to give the nod of recognition when you meet them: but us they have not the glimmer of f?n interest In you and you haven't an atom of an Interest in them, it seems farcical to give the exacted nod. "Then there Is the acquaintance whom you have met once, and with whom your conversation has been limited to the con ventional words at introduction, 'Glad to meet you." You must go on bobbing at hin> through a lifetime if you live in the same town with him. He wishes you would stop towing and you wish you could. You dare not cease the performance for feat he will think you a snob, and he, of course, can do nothing but return your salute. "To a certain type of woman, however, I suppose there is a certain delight In bow ing It is like a game to her. She takes as much pleasure In it as she does in an ex tensive wardrobe. She has a haughty bow tor the 'fresh' man, and the minute after ward she is bending her neck graciously, all smiles and cordiality for one of the "fine fellows.' "When she meets a person who has been employed by her some time In some capacity, she bows very patron izingly and says very distinctly and very benevolently, 'How do you do, James?' or 'Good morning, Maria.' When It is some woman friend, with whom she Is very chummy, she gives a quick little Jerk of her head and laughs right out in her greet ing. If it is a man that she knows only slightly, but hopes to know much better, there is a demureness in her bow and a sidelong glance to accompany it. If she meets some one she considers above her in the social scale, she bows slowly, looking directly into the person's eye. If it is a wo man she hates, she moves her head ever so slightly. Just the mere shadow of a nod which is infinitely worse than no bow at all. When she meets the man she likes best?well. Just ask him how she bows then. "So maybe the fashion of bowing is worth while, after all, for if it is a bore to nod to bare acquaintances. It is a Joy to make an art of bowing." District Attorney Jercme was rather pmused by the manner in which a tramp who strolled up to the kitchen door of his Lakevllle home last Sunday morning sized up the labor situation. While the wanderer was devouring the food set before him. he bitterly complained about the hard times. "But I had Imagined that work was plen tiful now." ventured Mr. Jerome. "Oh. yes," was the reply, "there Is plenty of work all right; but If you belong to a union you have to be on strike most of the time, and if you don't belong to a union they won't let you work anyhow."?New York Time*. LEO MEETS HIS PEOPLE LARGE ASSEMBLY IN SOME AT PUBLIC CONSISTORY TODAY. Pontiff Shows Increasing Weakness and Looks Wax-Like and Thin. ROME, June 25 ?The public consistory, postponed from June 18, was held today with much pomp and circumstance and additional Interest and reverence, for in spite of the reassuring news concerning the pope's health many persons believed that this would be the last consistory un der Leo XIII. The assemblage gazed at the venerable pontiff with intense curiosity, and there was redoubled enthusiasm In the cries of "Long live Leo!" He looked a little more wax-like, a little more bowed, his voice was somewhat thinner and It was evident that his attendants were anxious. Carried by Eight Bearers. There.were many strangers among the crowds of people who gathered In the corridors of the Sala Regia and Sala Du cale to witness the passage of the cortege. The pontiff was borne in the Sedia Gesta toria by eight bearers clad in red brocade. They were flanked by the bearers of the famous "flabelli" or feathered fans. The pope smiled while he blessed the crowds as he passed. In fact, at times he tried to rise so as to better impart his benediction, and It was only when he de scended from the Sedia Gestatoria that his extreme weakness was apparent. Gorgeous Cardinals. Following the pontiff came a gorgeous line of scarlet-clad cardinals, friars In va rious habits, priests and members of the papal court wearing velvet knee breeches and white ruffs. The church dignitaries were escorted by the noble, Swiss and Palatine guards, which, with the Sistlne choir chanting solemnly, formed an emo tional picture. Special tribunes were erected on both sides of the papal throne for the accom modation of the members of the diplomatic corps, the Knights of Malta, the Roman aristocracy, the family of the pope and relatives of the newly created cardinals. Among the Americans present were Mon signor Kennedy, rector of the American College; Monsignor Farrelly, secretary of the American College and privy chamber lain to the pope; Most Rev. Robert Seton (formerly of Jersey City, N. J.), titular archbishop of Heliopolis, and Right Rev. F. Z. Rooker, bishop of Jaro, Philippine Islands. The ceremony wa3 made as short as pos sible In order to lessen the pontiff's fatigue. The pope Fat on the throne facing the brocade-covered benches, in the form of a square, on which the cardinals were seated. Conferring the Red Hat. The new cardinals present who were to receive the red hat from the pontiff, accord ing to custom, first took the oath In tho Sistine Chapel and were then ushered Into the Salaregla, where they were greeted by the master of the ceremonies. On approach ing the pontiff the three cardinals knelt and kissed his feet and his hands, and ttye pope then gave them the double embrace. The new cardinals afterward embraced the other cardinals. Returning to the pon tiff each of the new cardinals then received from his hands a cardinal's hat, which ended the ceremony. Bestows Benediction. The pope thereupon rose, bestowed the apostolic benediction and, preceded by the pontifical cross and surrounded by the car dinals and his attendants. Impressively re tired. Subsequently the pope rejoined the cardinals In the Sistlne Chapel, and the pontiff announced the new episcopal ap pointments. These appointments have oil been previously announced from time to time. The postulants, for Archbishop Farley, Monsignor, Farrelly; for Archbishop Quig ley, Monsignor Jacquemin, and for Bishop Orth, Father Descuffl, of the propaganda, then entered the hall and asked the pope to bestow the palliums on the prelates they represented, which was granted. They will be delivered tomorrow. The function end ed with the pope giving the new cardinals their rings as princes of the church. STATUE OF GEN. HOOKER UNVEILING AT BOSTON OF EQUES TRIAN WORK OF ART.

Prayer was offered by the chaplain of the day. Rev. Dr. Arthur Little of Dorchester, who was a chaplain In the Union army. Cord Pulled by Grandnephew. Lieutenant Governor Curtis Guild, Jr., in behalf of the committee of the executive council, turned over the memorial to the state. Master Joseph Hooker Wood, grand nephew of General Hooker, pulled the cord whfch released the veil, and as the curtain fell. Battery A. stationed on the common, fired a major general's salute of thirteen guns. Governor John L. Bates accepted the custody of the statue for the common wealth. The formal dedicatory exercises will be held this evening. Personal Bonds Taken. James W. Skelton was arraigned before Judge Scott in the Police Court this morn ing on a charge of making threats of per sonal violence against Nellie Skelton, his wife. Skelton told the court that he had been having considerable trouble lately and had tried to drown It In the flowing bowl. He denied, however, that he had made threats against his wife, but the court con sidered that in the face of his admission that he was Intoxicated Skelton was no^ competent to Judge us to his words or ac tions at the time. Mrs. Skelton Interceded with the courf to be lenient with her husband and take hlS personal bonds. The Judge consented, but In doing so admonished Skelton that he ought to keep sober when In trouble, for" getting drunk only multiplied his difficul ties. Pupils Give Musicale. The pupils of Mr. H. R. W. Miles, assist ed by Miss A. Claire D. Murray, the blind scprano, and Miss Evelyn Booth, violinist, gave a musicale at the Y. M. C. A. parlors last evening to an appreciative audience.

A dispatch from Indianapolis to the New Tork World says: Indianapolis is filling up so rapidly with southern negroes that the white population begins to grow restive and outbreaks are not infrequent. Last night seventy-five or one hundred white boys and young men attacked the Southside Calvary Baptist Church, in which a lot of negroes were holding some kind of a social enter tainment. The whites were supplied with stones, which they hurled at the church, and when the negroes came out clubs were used and many on both sides suffered broken heads and other kinds of injuries. The prompt action of the Rev. XV. r. W llliam.i of the church prevented the whites from making a second attack aad probably injuring some of the colored party. The police were summoned, but no arrests were made. After the social at the church some of the negroes walked to where a dance wna in progress in Phoenix Hall. Several whites followed, and soon they had recruited enough white boys in their lines to make an attack. The negroes at first stood their ground and a pitched battle with stones and clubs was fought. The negroes were by this time outnumbered by the additional forces and put to rout. No one was fa tally injured. u HYATTS VILLE AND VICINITY Man Killed by B. and 0. Train?Possi ble Suicide.

Wilder Married. A New York dispatch announces the mar riage in mat city yesterday of Marshal P. Wilder, the monologuist, and Miss Sophia Hanks of Brooklyn. ?i'. Wilder has been before the public for twenty years as an entertainer, and he has jested before royalty and In the drawing rooms of American society. Originally a court stenographer, he turned his talent for mimicry to such account that he became well known. He is a familiar figure at first night performances on the Rialto. Occa sionally he makes the rounds of the vaude ville houses and music halls, where lie ap pears In monologues. Those who know Mr. Wilder well believed that he was a confirmed bachelor, for he had for forty-three years remained in a state of single blessedness. He took none into his confidence yesterday with the ex ception of one of liis friends from each of the newspapers of the city and a few of his associates in the theatrical world. To the members of both families the wed ding seems to have been a surprise. Dr. Wilder, the father of the bridegroom, with whom the humorist has lived in the Alpine apartment house for many years, said ha knew nothing about the wedding until it had taken place, and referred all Inquirers to Colonel Marceau. The father of the bride could not be seen, but at his office it was said that nothing was heard of the wedding until nearly 5 o'clock. "Executive Avenue." To the Editor of The Evening Star: It has been proposed to change the name of 16th street above Columbia road, and 1 understand that the name "Mt. Pleasant avenue" has been proposed, but for one reason or another has not been accepted by the Commissioners. This name, of course, would please the people of that section generally. But it seems to me that a more appropriate thing to do, and something that would probably please everybody, would be to accept a sugges tion of The Star, made as long ago, I be lieve. as the .second administration of Pres ident Grant, that the extension then pro posed. and which has now become a cer tainty, should be called "Executive ave nue." This would render It unnecessary to change the name of 16th street and would avoid the confusion and trouble which must inevitably result from chang ing the present name. I believe The Star expressed the senti ments of the community, in fact, of the country at large, at that time, in the sug gestion that this thoroughfare to be opened as an extension of 16th street beyond Co lumbia road be called Executive avenue. A little agitation of this subject in the columns of The Star might bring about the adoption of this name, which I believe would be appreciated by a large majority of the people of the District of Colulmbia and elsewhere JULIA C.
