"SLUMMING" IN LONDON.
About tho "uolllcst" Dissipation Known
to tlio Fashionable "World.
"There is one English fashion v.-hich tho
Anglo-maniacs havo not yet succeeded in in
troducing in New York," said tho European
buyer of a large silk houso a few days ago,
"and that is slumming. In London, visiting
Ihe slums is believed to bo about tho jolliest
and most fetching dissipation known to tho
world. The subject has been the butt of tho
comic weekly artists of London for somo
months now, and no well-regulated member
of society can afford to miss a slumming
party during tho season.
"They do it up in great shape over there,
you know. An Englishman must dress for
every expedition, no matter whether it is a
trip to Africa or a walk to the corner. In
slumming women mn to cloaks and men to
long coats. These outer garments nro be
lieved to ward off disease, though exactly how
they do it when the wearers breathe tho foul
air of tho slums is difficult to imagine. When
they return to tho houso of their hostess or
chapcronc tho young people all throw off
these wraps in the passage, and tho wraps are
aired by tho servants and returned by raes
ngcr the following day. A supper, more or
less elaborate, follows the Vmui,' as the excite
ment makes nil hands hungry and talkative.
Thera are always two policemen -with tho
party, and. as a rale, not moro than five or
six people go along. London tramps aro lia
ble to prove surly and ill-tempered when
their homes are invaded.
"The pai ty stai ts from tho hostess' house in
carriages at 11 o'clock or perhaps midnight,
although that is pretty late, and drive to the
heart of tho London blums. Hero thoy
wander through tho quarters of tho poor, the
outcast and tho lost ones of tho great town.
pushing their way into rooms where drunken
louts, repniiivo women and scraggy and un
kempt children lie sleeping like j-o many
worms in a bait box. Thoy go everywhere,
for tho polics do not rccognizo tho i ights of
any of tho paupers, and bang their way rath-
Icssty ahead. I ho high born men and women
gazo upon th ir dirty fellow creature.-, visit
their opium dens, their drinking places, dance
halls or, rather, cellars and invade their
living room". When they've had all their
stomachs and eyes will stand they return to
their Hipper. It never occurs to them, of
course, that tho cost of one such meal as they
discuss would lift a mountain of misery and
woo from ho hacks of the poor, thoy have
just viitcL Philanthropy is not a proper
fad now across the water.
'Is thcro no slumming in New York?"'
'Oh, occasionally parties of men send down
to police headquarters and secure the services
of a detective for a trip through Baxter, Mul
berry . mid Mott streets; but slumming is not
recognized as a fashionable amusement.1'
New York Sun.
Visit to XcA- York Cliinnttmii.
My first visit to our New York Chinatown
fascinated me, and I liavo since leen thero
many times, and I like tho Chinese. They
aro clean, respectful and wonderfully polite.
The much vaunted politeness of tho French
man is nowhero besides tho gonuino courtesy
of tho Chinese. Of course they havo their
vices. Thoy aro inveterate gamblers, and
opium is everywhere. Almost every China
man owns his own "lay out," and tho smell of
tho burning drug is in every house. But I
don't know that it is nay worso than our much
more frequent whisky bottle. It does not
certainly engender so many fights, and when
a Chinaman does fight ho does not do much
damage, unless ho uses a knife. In this, as in
everything else, the Chinaman is a creature of
Tho Chincss manner of fighting is to grab
each other's pigtail with tho lef L and hammer
away with tho right; when ho tackles a short
haired man he is nowhere; his left hand goes
clawing wildly around tho back of his oppo
nent's head, and failing to catch tho pigtail,
he seems not to know what to do flMh his
right. "When wo remember that it is tho
very lowe-t class of Chiueso which have conic
to this co jntry, it is remarkable how well
IhcyhclKiye. One custom, however, gives
nn insight into tho Chmamin's character.
Confucius said: "Whosoever giveth a cup of
tea to him v. ho asks hath doiu a good net,
which shall lw remembered in tho time of
trouble.' No charge is made for tea in tho
restaurants and in the barber's shop, tho
grocery .stores, tho gambling houses, and tho
upium dciO-s. A pot of tea stands always
ready for any who cXiooso to drink. Allan
Formaiu'n Ckveland Leader.
Coats for 15o Dairy.
In England they now have a special breed
of goat:; for the dairy, and an association
has been formed, tho best animals registered
in a flock book, and a general iinprovemen?
determined on. In fact, an illustration of a
celebrated dairy goat, reentry appearing in
an English paper, showed such a opacity of
udder as to comparo favorably with some
cows now in our dairies. And why should
not the goat b given a useful plao among
our domestic animals? If it can le so im
proved as to give largo quantities of milk, it
will largely contribute t tho assistance of
those who have no facilities for keeping a
cow, while their prolificacy will place them
within the reach of all.
The ihe gnat somtimes gives as much as. six
quarts of mill:, if they are superior milkers,
and the milk is not oiXy rich in cream, but in
all the clcmcnU that form a complete food.
But tor is not made from goats' milk, but
somo of the richest and best ilavored cheers
are produced from it. IVe predict that oro
long wo will lKgm to iviport itrains of good
milking goats from Europe. Farm. Field

An Interview "Willi John 3rrK;e:.

was the best ever published. One evening

in the grounds and tho gentlemen seated

were skillfully drawn cut. and. unob

Ho iwaallv walks to his office and from thera
