A -writer in "Fame" says: 'The
more -we study advertising the more
must we come to the conclusion that
it is a psychological art, and that no
mail -who lias not the faculty of read
ing his fellows will ever make much of
a success of it." But every man,
says the Philadelphia Recoid, is leilile
in the particular that he wants the most
for Iiia money, and wants to know
where to get it. Adveitising fur
nishes this information; and its suc
cess itoes not depend on psycttoicgj or
hypnotism except in to far as those
occultisms inhere in the homely vir
tues of frankness, simplicity, clear
ness and recognition of the fact that
the 'reader's hump of self-interest is
always the dominant bump on his cra

MBS. CARTER IIL.
A Throat Trouble Due to Her Ex
cessive "Work.
Thousands oT people in Washington
who have enjoyed Mrs. Leslie Carter's
superior poitrnyal or David Bclasco's
heroine in "The Heart or Maryland" will
be grieved to learn or her Illness. An
audience that filled pretty nearly every
seat in the Lafayette Square Opera Uouse
last night went away disappointed. Mrs.
Carter is suffering from acute laryngitis,
the direct result or the tremendous strain
put upon her vocnl ckords by the require
ments of her exacting part.
Mrs. Carter has been ailing Tor several
days past and Monday afternoon her
physician, Dr. F. A. pardner, strongly
advised against a performance on Moa
day evening. But Mrs. Carter was de
termined to appear, as she declaied, so
long as she could talk. Dr. Gardner told
her that If she did so the probabilities
were that she would be unable to speak
above a whisper on Tuesday. Ills judgment
proved true, and last night by the physi
cian's order she was allowed to see no
one. Mrs. Carter, however, sent down
word to The Times that she was de
termined to appear nt the matinee today.
Nearly every seat in the house has been
sold for this afternoon's peiformance.
The holders of tickets for last night's
performance were given- the option or
having their tickets exchanged for some
other performance during the week or
of having their money refunded, and It
is a great compliment to Mrs. Carter
to say that very- little money indeed
went out of the box office.
A" AGREEABLE SITRVRISE.
Metropolitan Railroad Employes
Given nn Extra Day's Pay.
The employes of the Ninth street di-islon
or the Metropolitan Railway Company were
agreeably surprised yesterday artcrnoon
to rind an extra day's pay inclosed in
their envelopes with their wages tor last
week. Accompanying the money was a
little note stating that the company aj
preciatcd highly the efficient services or
the men during inauguration week and in
closed the extra pay as a token of their
gratitude. An order restricting all leaves
of absence was issued at the beginning of
the -Week nnd many of the men worked
that would otherwise have laid off for a
day or two.
The men feel highly grateful to Presi
dent Harries for the kindly attention and
thoughtful appreciation which dictated the
gift.
REV. T.AMTCEKS EXONERATED.
Tho Church Council Quashes the
Charges Made Against Iliin.
The committee appointed by the eccle
siastical council or the Baptist churches
of Washington and Alexandria, to in
vestigate the charges preferred against
Rev. S. Garrish Lamkins, after a full
investigation, made a report yesterday
exonerating him from misconduct. Eight
members of the committee signed the re
port and two were opposed to it.
The council by a large majority adopted
the report.
Policeman Charged with Assault.
Policeman J. M. Austin, son of Police
Captain M. A. Austin, was brought before
Judge Miller yesterday, charged with
committing a vicious assault upon Will
iam Mason, colored, coachman to ex-Secretary
or Agriculture Morton the'Capi
tql grounds on inauguration-day. Austin,
it was charged, hit the coachman-, who was
driving his employer's carriage, with his
club., inflicting a severe wound. After
hearing evidence on both sides, Judge
Miller continued the case until today.
ChnritnblcTn.stitutiotis Remembered.
The will of the late Mary S. MuTson,
bearing date of September. 19, 1889, was
filed for probate yesterday. To the Jack
son Orphan Asylum and the Retreat for
the Sick, both in Norfolk, is left Si 00 and
$200, respectively. Many small bequests

was convicted yesterday of stealing $3.50
from Mrs. Margaret L. Hathaway and
Judge Kimball sentenced her to jail for
six months. Lawyer Harry S.mith claimed

NO ROOM FOR MADfiE FISHER
The Girls' Reform-School Crowded
with Inmates.
Talcen Back to Jail Police Court
Judges. Complain of the Luck
of Facilities.
Madge Fisher is again on the hands
or the District authorities. Last Sat
urday shewus convicted of incorrigi
bility and sentenced -to-the girl's reform
school during her minority. Judge Kim
ball was informed yesterday by W. E.
Endlcott, president of the board of trus
tees, that that institution has already
as many inmates as it can accommodate,
and so Madge was sent back to be cared
for by the police court authorities.
For the present, and until the charge of
assault which she: has prefeired against
Policeman Mcllin is disposed of, she will
be kept at the District Jail, in oider to
insure her appearance as a witness. After
that the question as to what .disposition
shall be made or her will again nilsc. As
sistant District Attorney Mullowny says
that ir means or sending the girl to New
York, where she could bo cared for by
her mother, or the Catholic priest who
orrered to put her into a religious institu
tion, can be found, she will be sent to
that city. Otherwise, he will have no
alternative but to give her her liberty.
Police Court Judges Miller and Kimball
complain bitterly of the smallness of the
girls' reformatory, which lias accommo
dations for but thirty-seven Inmates and
is most always full. Young girls, they
say, arc orten brought into the courts
charged with incorlglbility or vagrancy
who, through the mediation or some suit
able reformatory, might easily be re
claimed. But under the present condi
tions, such girls have either to be turned
loose to return to their mode, of living,
or sent to the juil or workhouse, where
they consort with old and hardened crim
inals and rrom where they emerge much
worse than when they entered.
Another source of complaint is that there
are not separate apartments for white and
colored girls In the institution. It is under
stood that this is another reason for re
fusing admission to the Fisher girl, as the
present occupants of the reformatory are
all colored.
Judge Kimball, in speaking of this mat
ter yesterday, said: "The need for a
larger girl's reform school is one or the
most urgent In the District, ir only the
means ror caring for the wayward girls
who are brought before the police court
judges were provided a larger proportion
of these unfortunate creatures might be
brought to see the error of their wayB and
reform. It is a crying shame that this city,
which Is so progressive In other directions,
should be deficient in this most important
respect."
BOSTON'S NUMEROUS CRIMES.
Fined for Assaulting Ills "Wife and
Held for Forgery.
John A. Boston, a young, good-looking
mulatto, was tried in the police court
yesterday afternoon on three charges,
namely, of passing a forged check for
$7 on William Davis, or No. 1700 P
street northwest,; assaulting his (Ros
ton's) wire, and Tor threatening her lire.
Boston was arrested several weeks ago

times impersonated. When eearched a
letter from Recoider of Deeds Taylor,

clairvoyant; also one from ex-Secretary
or the Treasury Carlisle-to Seuator Uanna,
recommending the bearer, to a government
position. This latter is 'said to be a
forgery.
Hie principal, witness against the
prisoner was his wife, who testified that
on January 29 he came to hT rooms, at
No. 919 F. street northwest, aud beat
and kicked her. It was her name which
was forged to the check.
Boston was fined 20 for the assault and

Richard C. Drum, Thaddeus E. Stan
ton, Benjamin Rittenhousc, George D.
Ruggles and George W. Davis, as officers
or the Army Mutual Aid Association, were
made defendants in a suit brought yes
terday by Sarah II. Benton, widow or
the late James W. Benton. Mrs. Benton
asked the court to compel the association
to pay her $3,000 as bcucfit money.
It Is alleged that though the money is
due, the officers of the lodge refuse to
pay it, under the pretext that Mr. Benton
had been dropped from the order before
his death.
Mrs. Benton insists that the members
of the order had purposely dropped Win,
and that when her husband sent them a
check for his dues they refused to ac
cept it.
TIIE I1II1LE ANALYZED.
Bishop Sntterlee's Lecture at Epi
phany Church.
The Right Rev. Henry Y. Sntterlee,
Bishop of Washington, lectured latt night
he Tore a large audience at Epiphany
Church. His subject, "The Bjble and the
Church," was the first oC a course of
five Lenten lectures to be given by various
divines of the Episcopal Church under
the auspices of the Churchman's League.
The speaker prefaced his remarks with
the command of Christ to his apostles to
tench all nations, and then proceeded to
give an historical analysis of the Bible,
and particularly of the New Testament,
through century after century or transla
tions and interpretations, notably the
revision made by Cromwell in 1539, aud
King James in 1G04. He said in part:

TIMES TOMORROW
Story Entitled,
the church, but a witness for the faith
of the early apostolic church."
Tlje bishop concluded his address with
a quotation from Canon Mason or Canter
bury: "It must never be forgottcn,hesald.
"that the Bible is a church book, written
for churchmen, and the inspiration of the
same spirit which is leading the church
so far as it is willing to be led, into aU
truth and in all truth.'
The lecture was preceded by the usual
service of song and prayer, led by the
pastor of Epiphany Church, Rev. Randolph
McKlm. The next lecture or the series will
be given at St. Paul's Church, next Tues
day evening, when Dr. McKim will speak
or "The Bible and Other Literature.'
YOUNG MAY" BE BLINDED.
Serious Condition of the Victim of
Tho Capitol Hill Jlold-np.
Mr. George II. Young, the Virginia
merchant, who was assaulted and robbed
In the Capitol grounds Monday eveuingmay
very likely lose the sight of his left eye.
An examination of the wounds was made
at the Emergency Hospital yesterday .after
noon, and it was found that a powerful
acid had been used by the high wayman.nnd,
that it had eaten almost entirely through
the lid of the eye.
The physicians who made the examina
tion say there is a possibility that the
sight of thceye may be saved, but it is
hardly probable. The bruise on the back
of the unfortunate man's head made by
the sandbag, while very painful, is not at
all serious.
Condemnation Proceedings.

Railway Company, through. Its attorney.
Clarence A. Brandenburg, yesterday filed
a petition In the District court asking for
the appointment or a commission to con
