"A country girl who is determined to go to Paris to study art is laying aside, for this purpose, each dollar she has earned," writes Ruth Ashmore in an article on "The Girl in the Country," in the January Ladies' Home Journal. "She found that there was no one else in the village who could make as good bread and biscuit as she-, that those who had to buy complained of the baker's bread. She make no effort at sending her bread to a A oman's Exchange, as she knew that such places were always over stocked, but she went through her own town a very small one and asked for orders. She is making money be cause there has never been a sad loaf of bread or a heavy biscuit sent outisaryot from her kitchen. She will supply Mr. Edward H.

All that glitteis cles in The Ladies' Home Journal are is not gold. The Langston boom for District Gommis ioner must have fallen asleep. Prof. Langston is a fine gentleman, and would, no doubt, make a good Commissioner. Is it now about time for some of these politicians to retire and allow others to have a show ? Prof. Langston is not a resident of the District, so the boys remarked a few days ago. The Recorder of Deeds received a fright a few days ago Col. M. M. Holland, it had been reported, had been appointed Recorder of Deeds. Col. Taylor got too nervous to hold a pencil. He might as well send in his resignation. As sure as one and oue make two he Trill be removed. . The colored democrats who were so active in having colored men re moved will be paid back in their own medicine. Innocent colored republicans were removed o make room for Negro democrats. There was a systematic method adopted, ana inaeea, tne poor colored, re publican was in the souo so to speak. They were taxed, and some of them were compelled to pay over to some of these so-called Negro democratic bogus organizations, their money. It was The Bee that put a stop to it, for which republi cans, that is, Negro republicans paid the editor off by being subsi dised. The Recorder of Deeds office, it is said, will go to a District man. Well, the more you do for some people the leas thanks you get for it. Every indication points to the appointment of Col. Fred. Brack ett. He is our friend, and I know if he is appointed he will make a good officer. Lawyer E. M. Hewlett will be ap pointed Judge of the Police Court, to succeed Judge Kimball, I hope. Mr. Hewlett is a brilliant young man. and will pome dav make a good judge. 'J he hustling boys around the Police Courts are doing good busi ness. Lawyer Ricks is doing his part, and will, no doubt, some day get rich. The candidates for City Postmas ter will soon spring up. The civil service law is a sham. A. thing that can be twisted and turned to suit parties, has no f 3rce. Those who like civil service will get their fill of it before the end of this administration. Col. True3dell has been a very good Commissioner. If Col. Moore were to retire I would favor Mr. Sylvester. He is a man who is entitled to a promotion. There should be an assistant Chtef of Police appointed. It would greatly relieve Major Moore, who has made an excellent officer. The Emancipation celebration will be a great success, no doubt. The boys are making a great deal of headway. Home rule is the policy of the District people, and before long 1 am sure there will be voting here. Gyrus. creating such widespread interest, will write aDout ine "social Lite ol the President," in the April issue of that magazine. The ex-President will tell of the dinners, receptions, etc., that are given by the Chief Executive, and detail the great social demands made upon him. He also gives a peep into the White House dining-room and sil ver closet, and notes the beauty of the service used for State dinners, which was bought at second hand. It is said that he also pays heed to the oft-repeated question, "How much of his salary can a President lay aside." sankev's new sacred song. Evangelist Ira D. Sankey, the singer and con poser, has written a new sacred song for the April Ladies' Home Journal. He has given it the title of "The Beautiful Hills," and considers superior to his famous "Ninety and Nine " Air. Sankey wrote it with the special view of its ap propriateness for outdoor choral sing ing for camp-meetings and other re ligious and semi-religious gatherings. NEW SHORT STORY BY JEROME. Jerome K. Jerome's new short story has been secured by The Ladies' .Home Journal for publication in the April issue, it is reputed to be m some respects a variation from Mr. Je rome's usual style, and also to be one of the brightest and best of the many excellent short stories that have come from his pen. He calls his new story "A Portrait of a Lady," and it will be illustrated by V. T. Smedley. DEATH OF MRS. SMITH. One of the best known women in this city, Mrs Smith, the estimable mother of Miss Annie and George W. Smith, was buried from Plymouth Congrega tional Church, on last Sunday after noon.
