rCOEr.ESPOXDEN'CK Or THE DISPATCH.
Jf kit Yokk, May 11. After all that has
been written and said about Central Park,
its summer glories and perennial beauty, its
natural attractions, its artificial adornments,
and of the great throng which daily line
its lovely walks and circulate in gilded
equipage its drives, the ordinary mind can
not comprehend or appreciate Central Park
as a whole. As often as I have been in the
park, summer and winter, I daily see new
beauties and new attractions in every de
tail. Central Park is one of the greatest
sights to be seen in New York. It does not
appeal alone to the artistic sense, nor to the
man or woman of one groove, like very
many other attractions of tMs world, bnt it
presents something which every human
being can enjoy who has the sense of sight,
or sound, of color, and is a lover of nature
or of art.
At this season of the year Central Park
blooms out in all its natural magnificence;
with the trees in full leaf, the walks and
drives free as yet from summer dust, the
green velvet sward spreading away to the
right and left over bill and dale, its ser
pentine drives thronged with carriages and
vehicles of every description, its lanes and
seats nlled with prattling children and their
nurses. Ah! it is a lovely eight, and one
which to enjoy thoroughly must be seen
again and again, like some famous land
scape hung upon a gallery wall.
BCTOSD ARTIST OE AUTHOR.
Ko painter could ever do justice to such a
subject. He could only give bits of life and
color here and there. No writer could ade
quately describe the appealing comeliness
ol such a scene. In my travels throughout
the world I have been in many famous
parks. Among them all Central Park, now
almost in the heart of this great metropolis,
is the most delightful. This, I take it, is
from the fact of great natural advantages
presented by a rugged surface, its rolling
swards and alternating forests and lakes.
The landscape artists agree that the most
beautiful natural scenery is that which pre
sents to the eye the sudden surprises in all
or these features and leaves no monotony to
weary the senses.
You can enter Central Park at almost any
of its half-dozen entrances, and see but little
beyond pistol shot Of what is to come
next you know not until a little further ad
vanced appears the unexpected. It may be
a tangled copse, it may be a pellucid pool
lying under tbe darkening shades, it may
be some small mound of jagged rock, or
again some artistic creation in marble or
bronze, or yet again some low cavern into
which the visitor gropes his wandering
way down through the narrow gorge neatly
paveu anu siepnea wiin stone or perhaps
OYir a rising knoll he comes suddenly npon
a lovely sweep ot common whereon flocks
of sheep graze a truly pastoral scene.
On that common on certain days you will
see perhaps 100 young ladies and young
men, in the bloom of youtbfulness and
beauty, indulging in the not overexciting
pastime of croquet. On other commons on
certain days you will see myriads of young
men and boys in shirt sleeves tossing the
lively ball. Marking these days is the flag
at the mast-head, which informs everybody
01 me privileges inus to ne enjoyed. The
guardians of the park reserve those com
mons on all other days sacred from intrud
ers for the purpose of preserving the sward.
Along the mall, that wide, straight
stretch of walk lined with benches, thou
sands of JTew Yorkers take their eveniug
promenade. On every lovely day through
out trie summer, and especially of mornings
and eveniDgs ot the hot and dusty season,
not a single seat will be found vacant.
Under the bridges which span the gulches
here and there, and amid the delightful
shades of "The Eamble," lovers sit and coo
the hours away, happy in themselves, un
mindful of the world and blind both to na
ture and to art. In the crooked paths which
wind among the hillocks ana crags and
forests of the wilder portion of the upper
park you conit upon them unexpectedly,
and with half apology upon the lips for the
accidental interruption of your presence.
Bnt you know very well that the fair hands
so hastily dropped will be as promptly re
sumed, and that the arm which innocently
rests upon tne back of the seat will presently
fall again and clasp the slender waist from
wnich it has been startled.
In the early mornings of spring, before
the sun's raj-s have fallen uncomfortably
upon the highway, the serpentine drives are
crowded with the greatest variety of con
veyances that American ingenuity and
American money and taste have been able
to invent. Just now the yellow carts, buck
boards and light wagons of all kinds are
especially prominent. These are driven
mostly by the young bloods of fashion or of
the turf, aud the horseflesh displayed there
in js in many respects superior to that
which can be seen in frout of any other
vehicles. The owners ol these light and
showy wagons, for the most nari. are ownem
of other turnouts, perhaps half a dozen or
more, but they prefer the yellow wagon 3s a
fad of the season. They greatly affect gaudy
harness and other trappings. ' The collar of
the young man's horse is of spotless white,
and the rest of the harness of black and sil
ver or gold. The latest for the yellow
wagon, however, is of russet leather. The
buckboards are decorated with silver orna
ments, and very olten showy tassels or
cocades are sewn upon the harness.
Once in a while you will see the high
English dog-cart ot yellow wood, or perhaDS
a mail-wagon of the' same material. These
are driven tandem, tbongh quite frequently
the heavy English cart horse, verv high and
long of limb and reach, will" make an
equally stritinc oictnre. KnmMimpe tho
young blood with a buckboard drives tan
dem with that machine, but this style is not
considered in good taste.
THE TANDEM PARADE.
One day this week there will be a great
parade of tandem outfits. Saturday the
New York Tandem Club holds its spring
drive. There will be or this organization
alone some 10 to 15 tandem teams, and they
will make a gaudy show. It will meet at
the Casino in the morning, thence, driving
through the park, going to Jerome Park
where a lunch will be served. On every
Buch occasion everybody who owns anv
thing that can be driven tandem will turn
out ana add to the pageantry of the scene.
Almost everyday now one of the most
comical sights in the park is the assemblage
of a lot ot fat women who ride tor the pur
pose of reducing flesh. It is not an uncom
mon thine to see a riding-master or escort,
with a half dozen fat ladies gently ambling
along in bis rear.engaged in that world-wide
occupation, the search for health. I think
it is one of the most comical sights lever
saw, and the comicality of it is not lostuDon
those who are the unwilling victims of
obesity. Let the occasional stroller or
bencher dare to laugh, however, and he will
be surely greeted with the indgnant frowns
of the more or less ungraceful horsewoman.
A lady on horseback, like a lady in a bath
ing suit, shows to great advantage when she
has a good figure and to the poorest ad
vantage when she has not. Put a dompv,
fat woman on horseback and she is "a
ridiculous spectacle, and the same is true,
iorthat matter, with regard to fat men. On
the other hand, the slender, willowy or,
to use a more modern term, swelte horse
. v-omen is the rule in Central Park, and
there are plenty of young men to match
and masb, too.
EQUESTRIANISM BECOMING FOPULAB.
Horseback riding in the park within the
last two years has grown to such an extent
that the Park Commissioners have petitioned
the Legislature lor the passage of a law to
widen all of the eqnestrian roads. This
will cost about $500,000. At present bnt
two riders can ride abreast, which makes it
dangerous to life and limb, and is certainly
subversive of pleasure when it comes to
meeting other riders at full tiU. A number
of accidents have occurred when riders have
attempted to pass each other on the same
trace going in dltterent airections. ine
latter part of last month the various riding
clubs of the city had a grand turnout iu the
park to the extent of a couple hundred
horsemen. Over 100 of these were in the
uniforms of their respective clubs. It was a
One of the other memorable annual occa
sions in Central Park is the parade ot the
Coaching Club. This always brings out an
immense crowd of people of all grades of
society and all ages. It is a better show
than Barnum's circus, this great display of
wealth and fashion. The big yellow coaches
with 10 to 12 well dressed ladies and gentle
men on top can be seen on other days occa
sionally, but the great annual parade is
worth coming many miles to see.

Bloodthirsty Combat Between Two Italians
In tbe Streets of New York.
New York, May 11. Pasqnale Marres

taken to Chambers Street Hospital, where
it was found that Marecoii was suffering
from five stiletto wounds in the chest and
abdomen. The surgeons say Marecoii will
die. Michaeli was wounded with a razor.
His tace was laid open from the mouth to

Seattle, May 6. There is but jne
Seattle. "Would .you see a town in which
development keeps pape with resources, am
bitious projects with'material prosperity a
town which has made greater strides during
the past year than any other north of Cali
fornia and west of the Rocky Mountains?
If so, you must come to "Washington, for
here is the magic city of seven letters and
three syllables fonnd Seattle a town of
varied and exhaustless resources, a place In
which one can find plenty of chances to
make money, and, better still, to spend it.
-fc-ven if the Seattle man dies young in
years, he has lived long. He lives more in
10 minutes than most people do in an hour.
He knows how to live, too. All that is
worth seeing he sees. He is an enterprising
article and as "clear as a hound's tooth."
Tho sign, "power to let," seems written
upon his comprehensive brow.
"Washington is immensely proud of her
twin cities, as they are called, Tacoma and
Seattle. It is difficult to say to which she
yields precedence. Seattle does not depend
upon any one resource (or her future growth
and success. Consequently the young man
who here enters the arena of action cannot
complain of ber lack of adaptability to his
chosen trade, business or profession.
NAMED AFTER A "WOMAN.
The city takes its name from Angeline
Seattle, an early pioneer of feminine prog
ress, and a woman whose wavs were kindlv
and gracious as "the alms deeds which she J
did" bear witness. Many cities in the Mis
sissippi "Vallev have grown into commer
cial fame by Laving centered in them an
immense grain trade. The growth of the
cities of Pennsylvania is chiefly due to .her
vast iron interests. The mine's have given
the towns of Colorado their precedence. In
California all cities of metropolitan impor
tance have sprung up in a few years in re
gions where the fruit industry is the chief
resource and financial reliance.
But Seattle has all of these resources com
bined. She manufactures iron, handles
grain, converts timber into merchantable
lumber, raises fruit for market, develops the
mining of precious metals, exports and im
ports the products of other countries, and
her natural location is such that these are
Dot her only resources. A city like Seattle
that can sustain 50,000 j people and grow
5.000 a year must have facilities for employ
ment at once varied and almost limitless.
It has been said that the future of the new
State of "Washington lies in China, Japan
and Corea. Here youth and age meet lace
THE NEWEST CIVILIZATION

sunset land the people of Washington look
for their fnture riches. The Asiatic coast
imports annually over $300,000,000 of goods.
The greater part of this trade gets into En
gland; but Seattle people claim that most of
this wealth will eventually come to Ameri
can shores. Natural laws will drift the traffic
to the Pacific coast, as distance saved is in
favor of the Americans. It is this outlook

Like Chicago, fire has no power seemingly
to kill Seattle it but kindles, but inspires.
Three miles of costly buildings bave
recently been erected. Seattle is the
center of a great wheat field which
produces annually over 20,000,000 bushels
of wheat. The city is truly the commercial
center of "Washington. A $2,500,000 iron
and steel plant has lately been added to the
city's important manufacturing interests.

when there is no limit to resource.
WASHINGTON'S RIG FORESTS.
It will not be lone before "Western "Wash
ington will become known as the country of
crops. It has been said that there is suf
ficient timber growing to support the people
of "Washington for at least a century. Such
enormous trees one has never before seen in
this section of tbe world. It is no uncom
mon thing for lumbermen to ship beams 200
feet in length. They generally have to be
shortened, however, owing to difficulty in
transportation. There are several vessels
in Puget Sound, as long as 130 feet built of
timbers which run from stem to stem, not
one of them spliced. Spars and masts are
manufactured fh Seattle and sent to foreign
countries to North Africa, Spain and South
Last summer during the forest fires
enough timber was burnt off "Western
"Washington, in the vicinity of Seattle, to
pay off more than the national debt. Yet
in this vast lumber district, its loss was not
even felt There are nearly 30,000.000
acres of timber land in "Western Washing
ton, and the sawing and shipping of lumber
naturally finds its center in this busy and
unconquerable city. Idle hands here must
necessarily he the fault of idle brains. En
thusiasm helps enthusiasm.
Cities, lite people, prove an inspiration
to each other. One bit of individual influ
ence Jgoes further than we think; ever cir
cling and widening, Seattle feels the fire of
Tacoma. Tacoma catches the glow of Seat
tle. The latter being a larger town has
donbtless a more distinctive perhaps enter
prisingcharacter. The twin cities, how
ever, are rivals in the best sense of tne word
each seeking to prove its Americanism by
its push, thoroughness and dauntless cour
age. How weli each succeeds, the events of
the present tell. H. M. Spalding.
In the Spring
Nearly everybody needs a good medicine. The
impurities which have accumulated in tho
blood during the cold months must be ex
pelled, or when the mild days come, and tho
effect of bracing air Is lost, the body is liable to
be overcome by debility or some serions dis
ease. The remarkable success achieved by
Hood's Sarsapanlla, and the many words of
praise it has received, make it worthy your
confidence. It is the "ideal spring Medicine."

W. M. LAIRD'S;
As the MAMMOTH, in pre-hlstorio times, exceeded in bulk all
other fdrms of contemporary life, so in present times LAIRD'S
MAMMOTH SHOE STORES surpass all competitors in num
ber, quantity and quality of goods, but especially in th3 mar
velous bargains .presented at all times.
As the ALLIGATOR is the most formidable among saurinna
swarming in American "waters, so do Shoes, atLAIBD'S,.made
from Alligator hides, defy wear and water as perfectly as when
it was originally fastened upon the back of his Gaitership.
Attention is called next to the largest Marsupial, the Austra
lian KANGAROO, famous for his jumping abilities. Shoes from
this kind of hide are especially adapted for Spring-wear.
The distinguished member of the genus capricornus com
monly known as DONGOLA GOAT, furnishes fine, soft skins
for lady tourists; Shoes especially adapted for scaling moun
tains and high peaks.
In this business, as in others, the most useful are the common,
everyday domestic animals, suoh as Porkers, Veal Calves, Oows
and Horses, who furnish from their much enduring hides the
most substantial, reliable, pliable and all-round wearing foot
gear for people of all ages and feet of all sizes.
The difference between seeing ourious and interesting objects
at Museums and these wonders of APPLIED ZOOLOGY AT
LAIRD'S is, that it costs you money at the former, while you
can save much money by visiting the latter.
