Bargain Friday Means
A Busy Friday.
ORE and more women are coming to the full
1 realization of what these Bargain Fridays
mean. With the little lots to be closed out
and the little prices to be asked the attraction
is magnetic. A week's selling is enough to make little
lots of big lines of goods here. It's a store of hustle
anyway. Goods come in and goods go out so rapidly
you'd hardly realize it possible. You can never count on
finding an advertised article a day after it's announced
on sale. A quick sale on tomorrow.

BOWING AS AN ART.
Even When It is a Bore It Gives
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
LEO MEETS HIS PEOPLE
LARGE ASSEMBLY IN SOME AT
PUBLIC CONSISTORY TODAY.
Pontiff Shows Increasing Weakness
and Looks Wax-Like
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.
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
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
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.
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
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.

Negro Meeting 'Broken Up by Mob in
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
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

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.
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. DOWELL.
