MASKS TO BE W0R.
The Day a Tame Oae So Far as tbe
Carnival Is Concerned-
Fat Tuesday in Memphis is Won
log quits if-an. ine nrtt OMervstce
ol the day in Memphis will be t vivid
aemory always with thoee who took
part in or witnessed it. Nearly every
man and boy who conld fiord a cos
tame pnt it on and enjoyed himself tl
tbe top ef bis bent. It was tbe excep
tion rather than the rule cot to be
masked. Tbe next year and tbe one
following there were fewer maskers,
oat processions ana tabieiax ef oc
surpassed masniflcence. The Mem
phi piled on the agony too high, and
expended in one grand blsi and
glory Mardi Gias fuel of somcient
3aLt ty to bave solliced for half a
ctn very creditable nor less preten
tious displays. In a word, Mardi Giai
lervor Has dwindled into absolute in
difference. This mournful conclusion
mast have been forced upon tbe
minds of those who witnessed yester
day's fiwblj attempt to revive tbe
glory of tbe carnival.
A trades procaseion might bave
been, with a micro jcops, anil a taw
giddiest of the giddy msgni tied every
bootb'ack with afale fiice on into a
tioapcf txecqneradets. 'J be fullenjny
ment cf the two bells to take pia-e
la-.t night was marred bvthat inflexi
ble moralitt, Utipreme Dicia'or David
Park HnJJen. B -fore proceeding with
tbe business of the Police Court yes
terday morning, that grave and reve-
end seigneur Bought to fence in the
town with the following pronuncm
ment): "I bave bad a great many inquiries
for permits for masked balls here of
late. I understand there is one to be
given to-night at the Exposition.
They can give the ball, but there is to
be no masking allowed. I bave come
to the conclusion that these masked
balls bave got to be stopped. They
are the ruin of the community. When
tbe paites come to me fora permit for
this ball to-night I am going to give
them a it'RigLt permit but allow no
masking, 'ibey can wear as fancy
costumes as they please, but they cm
not wear masks on their faces."
The boys and some of tbe girls were
struck dumb by tbia ruling, tbe most
remarkable since tbe days of the
Puritan fathers-. As a matter of simple
fact, the most brazen person of the
coy maiden' in the habit of attending
Carnival balle, is ber face, and ii were
a charity tl allow ber to bide it with
mask from tbe cal.'ow youth. And as
may readily be imegined. th fair but
frail cevotees a', Momus's shrine, in
revenge for tbe restrictioa as tt their
faces, went to the last limit in tbe
lavish display of such other cbarms of
parson as they were possessed.
THK EXPOSITION BALL.
The chill norther that struck tbe
city last night seemed to have found a
congenial abiding place at the Expo
sition Hall, for it was there in all its
glacial integrity, and sent cold xhivers
down the backs of tbe adventurous
maidens who paraded its Hoars in
short dresses, sleeveless and decollete.
There were aSout fifty cf the softer
sex piesent and about 300 of the male
persuasion, the latter carefully envel
oped in overcoats and slnnding at out
in shivering groupp, witnessing the
feeble efforts made by a score or two
of dancer to keep warm. Itamitiis
cencesof Fnlton and the opening night
of the Garden Wall bovered in the air
and cast a gloom over the proceedings
that eve"n the line music of Arnold's
band wai unable to dispel.
TDK SKATING KINK. " ,
A similar scene was in progress at
the skating rink, and the attendance
fully up to that of the rival ball across
the way.There wat even here and there
to be noted in the crowd desperate
fffort at costliness of costume which
found expression in one case in a
black velvet bodice and skill, and in
another in an elaborate imitation of
of the garb of an Indian princess, with
feathers in ber balr and the inevitable
tomahawk in ber hands, with
out which no ballroom Indian
princess would be complete. Outside
of thee two isolated cases there was
no effort st elaborate cottame, on the
contrary the general run of the dreea
in? was rather the reverse of eiaboiat i.
it was n' t quite as cool et the rink as
at tbe Exposition building, but it
tt ok iforous dancing and a powerful
iiiiRginRtion to keep one's Belt warm,
Iillxik HnuM drew a good house last
night and Madame Jaiiauscliek gave
additional evidence of her versatility
and genius in the enactment of the
donlile role of "Lady Dedlock" und
"Ilortense." It would lie hard to iiick
a Haw in her imporsonation of the
scheming, crafty, treacherous French
maid. Of tho rest of the conitianv Mr.

vant and Mr. Carden n verv good "Mr.

an "Esther Summerson" proveil her
self worthy of the praise bestowed
npon her iu these columns yesterday.
It is to be regretted that, the same
cannot he saidof Mr. Stuart, who made
so good an impression as "Mortimer"
Monday night and who utterly failed
last night to e 'en remotely convey a
faint idea of what "Inspector Bucket,"
as portrayed by Dickens, was like.
No train can have read the novel
and so utterly misconceived the char
acter as Mr. Stuart has done. In
charity to his audiences, if not to him
self, he should at once familiamchim
self with that immortal creation.

CRIGER L MEXICO.
THE MAX XILLINEK fAII.IMJ
I'M) KB FALSE CuLOKS.
The Experieaee a Drnuimer Had
With Him Ills Komantlc .Story
of Wealth and Marriage.
The male and female admirers of
the dashing man milliner, M. K.
Cruger, whose sudden departure from
Memphis some weeks ago created
quite a Hatter, will doubtless be de
lighted to learn that he ia no luxu
riating in the City of Mexico. The
pleasin intelligence in the metropolis
ol the Aitecs ia imparted by Mr,
Mitch Bennett, a comroeicial traveler
for tbe Winchester R ile Company,
and who ia well known in this city.
A short time since Mr. Bennett,
equipped in all the lavage parapher
nalia ol tbe plainr, with buckskin leg
gings, a brace of navy sizes, a bowie
knife and belt, and accompanied by a
guard with whom he had just made a
trip acroea the wild country, waa walk
ing along one oi the principal streets
on the way to his to tel. He saw Mr.
Cruger walking leisurely along in
front ot him, and having 'beard notb
irgol tbe shadow which enveloped
that individual in Memphis, caught
up with hira and slapped him in true
(liuainnr atyl upoi tbe shoulder.
Cruger sprang aside, and turned with
a kok upon his face which could
not bave expressed more of
terror and anguish if he had
been mortally wounded. He was ut
terlo speechless, and lor some minutes
had not the power to make any reply
whatever to the simplest quesfons of
Mr. Bennett, Reaasmed at last by
tbat gentleman's manner, be managed
to stammer foit1) an unconnected
story atout travling for his broken
health. Aa Mr. Bennett and the
guard walked oil, the latter, whose
suspicions bad been aroused by
Cruger'a manner, inquired what that
man bad stolen. By this t!me Mr,
Bennett's suspicions had been excited,
and the more be thought over the
peculiar behavior ol the man milliner
the more convinced he became that he
had been guilty of something in Mem
phis or elsewhere and that he was in
tbe state of mind "which sees in
every bush an ellicer." He resolved
to make some inquiries about Cruger,
and chance threw an opportunity into
his way the next night. Strolling in
to a billiard ba'l he saw Cruger
at play; of a bystander he in
quired his name. "His name is
llowart," was the reply. "Ah! and
where is he from." "He says
he is the son of a wealthy
Cuban planter. He has been making
a tour of tbe world. He stayed some
time in Memphis, where he made the
acquaintance of a beautiful heiress, to
whom he is erased to be married. He
is now on his way t Cuba to make
arrangements for his bride." Mr.
Bennett gave a long whistle and came
bark to civilization to leurn that the
dashing Cruger in bis heart had run
through with a fine buBlnepjs lift him
by his wi fa ; tbat he had been aitached
and closed up by his creditors and
that he left the city silently and at
dead of night t) avoid arrest for forg
ing the names of some of those who
bud been bis warmest friends.

and following upon the attempt to in-
iluce M Bsonrl lo secede Irom the

the inauguration of Gov. "Cuib"
Jackson to the death of Gen. Lyon.
It is one of the best contributions to
the hintoty ol the civil war and
(osseBses the great value that alwaya
attaches to a work written by a par
ticipant and lea 'er in the movements
described, Co',. Knead was ( ir a time
adjutant general of Missouri on the
stall' of Gov, Jackson, and subsequent
ly was chief of stall of Gen. Price, and
during the last year of the war solved
as a meniberof the Confederate House
of Representatives. He had, there
fore, abundant opportunity to know
whereof be writes. This he does
with graphic, soldierly directness
never failing to deal justly by the
leaders of the Union aa well as seces
sion side, among whom of the latter
we Und our fellow-citiaeu, Gen. Colton
Greene, conspicuously placed, a co
laborer with Gen. Basil Duke, now of
Kentucky. Col. Snead gives evidence
in these pages that be thoroughly
purged himself of whatever of preju
dice or pass im he may iiave had dur
ing the exciting days of secession be
fore putting pen to paper. He records
the facts with cool judgment, and not
infrequently points out the causes
of laiUne on the one side
and tl' success on the other.
Orators of secestion like the Impas
sioned Vest, now the leader of the
Democratic party In the United States
Senate, are given free scope iu the most
pointed and paeaionate sentences of
their best speeches ; and so, too, are
the Union men. Indeed, it ia plain
that Col. Snead'a purpose was to be a
historian and not a partisan; to ttute
the facta of a stirring period with the
fidelity of a faithful reporter with
blood in his veins, a sym
pathetic heart and a clear under
standing. That he leant affection
ately towards his compatriots the
living and the dead goes without
saying. But this does net prevent
him from becoming sympathy for tbe
gallant foemen who ptoved themselves
worthy opponents of the secession
leaders, whether on tbe political or
the battlefield. We heartily indorse
this book, and hope, it will find gene
ral circnltlion all along the Missis

The latest accounts from the Lost
Swamp are ti the effect that Martin
Mitchell, the "Swamp Angel," and the
hero cf aa hundred columns, has sim
mered down into the mildest-mannered
man that ever cut a throat.
Mr. A. P. Tock, who waa over in the
neighborhood of Widner's Station last
week, found Mitchell quartered in the
cabin with Mr. John T. Wllkerson's
ranchman. Mitchell held a navy-six

weapon bandy as long as he was in
Mr. Tack's sight- but treated that gen

Mr. Tuck and bis friend were prepar

doubtless several hundred females by
