Pos Moines ipecial.l The Iovra Kepublieau Stat Convention closed & harmonious aesiou on Wednesday. '1 ho del egates, of whom th? re wroM'.r. lucludod In the call, ere all present except three. Although there whs no very spirited contest as to plat form or ticket, the occasion brought here the forcnioht men in the party in the various dele gations, and occupying aoata of honor uim the stai:e were manv who have ltorue the bur- den of party work aud leadership for over thirty years. Anionc the notahto men rreaont were Sena tors Allison and Wilson, (ioveruor Iiarrabee, ex-Governor (.tear, Sherman, btone, and Mer rill. ConroHnaien llomleraon, strublo, l.yman, J'uller, Holme, and Anderson, and averylanje majority of the members of the late (ienoral Afteombly. 1 ho tip eches were pitched to a high key of party etithtic iusin. '1 ho opening by Hon. John Hrenimn, th eloquent Irish attorney of Sioux City, the tenijiorary Chairman, abounded in htronti argument and brilliant sallies of wit, well sustaining lils reputation as an orator. A Bigntficant incident during its delivery was the erieet produced by his reference to lilnlno and Allison; the name of the former evoked ai plause. but when referenoo was made, inci--deiitally, to Senator Allison, that gentleman, who occupied a prominent seat on tho stage vug j;ton a perfect ovation. This Biontaueous outburst showed unmistakably the iopular strength of Iowa's senior Kenutor within tho ranks of his party. There aro no sins hero that Senator Allison "will have any half-hearted support in Iowa, llr. lirennan referred to all the principal Issues, -dividing the parties. He sharply arraigned the democratic party for inconsistency in resolving in favor of homo mle for Ireland while denyiug it to tho people of lakota. The nomination of Gov. liarrabee for a sec ond term w as carried with a shout, and in re sponse to numerous calls he appeared and made quite an extended address. It was de voted largely to a review of State affairs, and compared tho expenses of State government in Iowa with that of neighboring States. Ho Said that in the Intt two years there had been a reduction of about frkM.UJO of outstanding warrants, and the whole amount would be wiped out by the first day of July next. He took strong grounds in favor of the prohibitory law, and tmid he behoved the man bad not vet been born who would live to see the repeal of tho law. J. A. f. Hull, the present incumbent, was then renominated by acclamation as Lieuten ant Governor. Tho contest over the nomina tion of Supremo Judge was quite, spirited, ns predicted. Jiu1l;o Adams led. On the nrnt for mal ballot Adams received :iOrt; Uobimon, 1M; ltuddick, '.)!; Lewis, 111; Granger, 77; llemler son, 7:a::d Miracle, '..". No choice. There was little change until tlio fourth ballot, when Robinson's vote jumped up to 4t 3i ; Adams, 77 Lewis, 79; Ruddick, l; Henderson, l'.i; Miracle, CO; Granger, '-'rf,. The opjiosition finally, on the next ballot, united on Senator Robinson of Storm Lake and gave him a good majority. In the contest for Superintendent of TubHc Instruction I'rof. Fellow received a good vote on the first ballot standing third in a Held of eight candidates. However, tho right narrowed down to Sabin, Grumbling, and 1 rost, and the Other candidates were withdrawn and their sup porters went to Sabin. Ihe fallowing is tho first ballot : Sabin, !' ; Grumbling, I7i ; Frost, lbi; (turney, ji; Fellows, Us; Collet' n, 50; Eldridge. 14 J. On tho third ballot Henry Sabin of Clinton was nominated bv tho lollowing vote : Sabin, 730; Grumbling, 22 J; Froat, 41-tho nomination being made unanimous. Tho platform, which was read by Georgo I), rerkins of Sioux City, was well received by the convention, and parti of it were heartily cheered, especially the p'.ank which favors tho abolition of the pass and the recommendation in regard to a two cent per mile passenger rate on first class railroads. The temperance plank also pleased the convention very gieatly, and tho plank commending Gov. Larrabee for hi position on the subject of the return of tho rebel flags. THK TLATFOhM APorTF.D. The Republicans rt Iowa accept as settled the old issues and conclusive results of tho war, and hail with patriotic satisfaction all Bincere evidences of returning fraternity end reunion. Tho new issues raised in tho South since the war against the right of every free man to cast his rote unmolested and have it honostly counted, and against tho right of minority rule In the Stato and nation, are yet to be settled. We deny that tho suffrage is purely a loyal question for eah State to reguluto in wholo or suppress in part as it chooses. The suppression of tho votes of tho black men in the South is not only a wrong to them, it is also, in a na tional ten Be, in the election of Congress and the eloction of a President, a bold and successful method to make one oto in the South count for as much as two in tho North, and thorefcro a wrong which reaches into every neighborhood and to every voter in tho Union. It is also used to degrade the negroes of the South into a servile form of cheap labcr with which free la bor everywhere must boon be brought into competition. We continue to favor a protective tariff for the upbuilding of American induntrles and the development of nil our r sources as a nation. We also favor it for the protection of American labor and in such degree as will maintain to such labor the advantage of tho difference be tween the w iigos of tho workingmen of Kurope and America. Wo believe tho tariff should tie revised and reduced wherever this policy will allow and the public interest npprote. Ihe strictest honesty, economy, find ittreuchmeut should bo required and followed in the expen diture of public money, ami we declare for all IKisslble and practicable reduction of taxation, Loth national and Stute. We favor the revision of the revenue laws of tho State to the end that taxation may bo equitable on all kinds of property. We are opioFed to ciiminal and vicious fin migration of all kinds to threaten tho public welfaro and disturb tho social peace, and to all pauper Immigration and convict or coolie labor, and to the coutriwt of prison lal ot bv tlie Stato to bring unfair competition to .'.mcrican work iugmen. Wo favor sucli legislation in the Kato as will protect miners and all other laborers in their lull richts as to compensation, protection of life, hours or laoor, mm freedom of trado. All public lands should bo held, aud all tin earned lands grunted reclaimed, for actual set tlers. Non-riMdeiit aliens should not bo al lowed to ncqulio titlo to la'ids in this country. The civll-scrvico law, enacted iy tho Repub lican partv and now so flagrantly disobeyed and violated by the Democratic administration. should be maiutained and improved in all ways to insuro its enforcement and increase its ef ficiency. Tho sole test of tho incumbent of an Office or applicant for a place in tho detail service of the Government sbouM bo honesty, competency, and fidelity, with the single ex ception that whon all other qualifications are equal, tho Union soldier shall havo the prefer ence. We are unablo to givo tho commendation of pood citizeus to tho administration of Grove r Cleveland, in its discrimination against aim its Khameful abuse of Union soldier, and the constant preference it has Phown to the men who fought to dt btroy the Union ; in its desjKt lo use of tlio executive power to veto bills pass ed by Congress for tin relief of Union soldiers and the l)cs Moines Liver lan I Rtttlers ; in its attempt to reverse the verdict of the war by a surrender of tho rebel battle-flags ; in its fail tire to reduce the surplus or decreaso taxation, and for its broken prom lues to the people and Its inefficient discharge of tho public services, we are compelled to denounce it as being un patriotic, unworthy, a disappointment to the country, and a fresh proof of the incapacity of the Democratic party to conduct successfully the affairs of the nation. Tho theory of public regulation nnd control of raiiwaysand other cori orations, first enacted Into law rV this State and by the State carried tip to the approval of the Supreme Court of tho United States, wo maintain with increasing favor. We appro e the general principle. of the Interstate commerco law, and favor such amendments thereto as w ill make It still more protective of the Interest! of the ieopie, and such State legislation as will apply its princi ples to this State. Wo either asx that the next Legislature shall, after thorough and unsparing Investigation, no revise and amend the laws forming the railroad codo of the Stato as will secure to the peoplo all Jeitimato protection from conratiori monopoly and extortion as will Increase the efficiency nnd the usefulness of the commission, and as will secure all fair and posslblo reduction in freight and fares, be lieving that the first-clas roads of tho Stato can afford to reduce passenger fares to two cents a mile. We are opjosed to all unjust discriminations between iK-rsons and places, and also to any railroad policy or legislation which will tend to Injure our agricultural, in dnstrial, or commercial interests, or tht will aid In building up outM Ie cities and interests at the expenso of the cities and towns of our own State. We are also opjoed to granting any form of exclusive rlshts by which any cor tiorstionor individuals will be protected from legitimate and honorable competition and es tablished as a monopoly regardless of publlo interest. This Government, saved from destruction by treason by the patriotism and valor of the Union soldiers, cannot afford in Justice or hon or to deal less than justly with them. It should cordially nnd promptly bestow a an obligation of the Government and not as a charity liberal pensions to all disabled or de pendent soldiers, and to the dependent widow s and parents of soldiers, thus preventing any suffering and want from coining to those to whom the nation owes a debt it can never re pay. Iowa has no compromise to hold with the sa loon. We declare in fuvor of the faithful and vigorous enforcement in all parts of tho State of the prohibitory law. The pharmacy law and county permit law should be so amended as to prevent the drug store or wholesale liquor law from becoming in any manuer tho substitute or sucoessorof the saloou. We express our sympathy with the people struggling for liberty and homo rule, whether it be tho Irish poi pie, led by Gladstone and l'arnell, seeking to oscaio from a long-time op pression, tjr the people of Dakota t r other Ter ritories in this countrv deprived of honu rule by tho partisan injustice of the Democratio party. We approve of the State administration of publio affairs in Iowa, and especially commend Gov. Larrabee for his courageous defense of tho people from the extortion of railway monopo lies and for his protect in behalf of Iowa against Cleveland's attempted surrender of tho rebel battlo-nags. SKETCHES OF THK CANDIDATES, William Larrabee was born In Connecticut In ixil. When 24 years old he removed to Iowa and began a successful business career. Ju dicious investments in wheat and real estate wero the foundation of hi prosperity, which places him in a high position among the lead ing citizens of his adopted State. His earliest experience in politics was as an uusuccesstul candidate for Congress. In 170 he became a member of the State Senate, to which ho had been re-elected continuously until two years ago, when he was electod Govornor. J. A. T.

At that time he was prominently mentioned for Governor, and although a comparatively young man his circle of acquaintances is extensive and his personal following is largo. G. 8.

MARYLAND REPUBLICANS, The State Convention the Largest and Most Enthusiastic Held for Man j Years. The Ticket and the Platform Promi nent Democrats Pledge Their Support. IBaltimoro special. Tho Stato liepublicau Convention met on Wednesday in this city, and was tbo largest and most enthusiastic gathering of Kepubli- cans held in Maryland for many years. Hon. Lewis 1,. Mct omas proi-ided. A platform was adopted. It starts out : llrnolrril. That tho Kepubllcan party of Mary- land, adhering to the principles affirmed by its national convention in respect to the rules governing apiointments to o!hee, declares that tho reform in the civil service should be thorough, radical, and complete. To that end it demands the co-operation of tho legislative with tho executive department of the Govern ment, and that Congress shall so legislate that ritnons, ascertained by proper practical comio tition, shall admit to public service; that the tenure of otlice shall I e ma le secure during good behavior, an 1 that the turner of removal for cause bhall accompany the i-owcr of apjoint ment. That the principles thus declared with refer ence to tho National Government nhall be ap plied in their full force to tho government of th State of Maryland and the city of Haltimoro. That the Presidout of the United States, by his action in regard to the Foderal appoint ments iu this State, has given conclusive evi dence that his professions of devotion to civil service reform aro hollow and delusive, and his failure to call tho Federal officeholders to account for their ojon ami shameless disre gard of hi own declaration that they should not engage in efforts to control tho political no tion of their own pany is a confession of insin cerity on his part or a proof that his will is controlled by the Btronger will of tho senior sonufc.r from" Maryland. That it Is tho imperative duty of Congress to pans tho measure known as tho lllair educa tional bill, or some equivalent provision for aiding the Kates in removing the Illiteracy w hich now exist In so many cf them. Tho platfoim j;oes on to supgi st laws fcr pro venting discrimination in the public schools against colored children ; regulating and ad justing the differenced between labor and capi tal ; the abolition of the system of enforced to bacco inspe tion ; the pusngo of such laws as will cHectually roti-ct American labor and Ameiican society from the influences of tho pauper and criminal classes of other countries and the competition of convict labor at homo; opposing tho calling of a constitutional conven tion ut tho prrbcnt time; condemning the schemes of tho Democratic party for the destruction of tho Chesapeake and Ohio Canal and Is removal an a competitor with railroad monopoly ; favor ing the pasfldgo of more stringent laws against the use of money at elections ; for an equitable svstem of taxation, a revision of tho rovtuuo laws, a curta in), nt of the exj enses of legisla tion, aud a revision of the laws regulating pro cedure in the courts so as to lessen tho expense ; for uwing tho surplus in the -tat Treasury to the extinguishment of the Stato debt as far as iiossli'le, and tho refunding of tho remainder by offering it iu the market no as to secure tho low oh t iato of interest; demanding a minority representation on all commission and official boards, and the adoption of such election laws as tdiall guarantee freo suflrago. Nominations were ma le as follows : Gov ernor, Walter II. llrooka, of Baltimore ; Comp troller, K. H. Dixon; Attorney General, Francis Miller. After tho business of tho convention was concluded a sensation was caused by the appearance on the lloor of John K. Cow en, a prominent lawyer ind leader cf tho re form movement In the Democratic party. He wai introduced, nnd in one of tho strongest ppetches ever listened to in this city pledged to tha Le publican ticket the full supiort of the Inde pendent Democrats. Hi announced that he was and always should be a Democrat, but that he wad tired of waiting for the fulfillment of reform promiios made by "Senator Gorman and tho ring Democracy" of tho State, W. L. Marburg, a Democratic lawyer and member of tho Crescent Club, also addressed the conven tion and promised to aid in electing the Repub lican ticket. i.N MAN AFITNCxSr Tli Demorrallc Administration Charged with Falsifying tho Kerords. (Indianapolis spocial.l More crooked transactions in the man agement of Mate finances by the Demo cratic officers during the last four years were discovered to-day. It has been found that in lSM."i they collected from the counties $2 l'.,C 11 of revenno that legally belonged to tho next fiscal year, and this was not properly credited on the looks. They also charged lo increased receipts rSbOO.OOO of temporary loans, vrhich repre sents a refunding transaction at 1 percent. In 1SW0 they also anticipated the revenues to the amount of S2l:l.Ol7.1. Uv these methods they Micceedcd in making it ap pear thut tho Stato was in a better condi tion financially at the end of the Demo cratic administration than it really was. when, os a matter of fact, they took charge of Stale affairs with a balance of over S 0(i,0()i) in tho treasury, and left it worse than bankrupt. It is believed that other illegal transactions will be discovered. A Budget of Breezy Gossip Re lating Exclusively to tho Fair Sex. Accompanied by Some Sotes on the Ever Changing Styles In Femi nine Attire Tlie Newest Costume, N tho somotime ago e learned thoro was a -In fcV.U t'oal oi Ii u leal of humbuggery at 10 world, but (lunions wo aro allowed IS BMW SKKmHf&irt "beauty unadorned" lie- BSKSaSSfltion. My dear girls, do not believe one syllable of that nonsense. If you want to test it, just notice and you will find tho shabbily dressed girl neglect&l. You will seo that the girl with rosy cheeks and sparkling eyes will lose both tho color and the sparkle unless sho backs them up with pretty ribbons and well-mado up dry-goods. No. mv dears; don t hug such a de lusion to your hearts, or it will bo tho last thing you will navo to nug to u. Tho fair comploxion and rosy clieeKs will tan and freckle, if not taken care of; tho pearly teeth will grow yellow and repulsive if not constantly cared for: the hands and feet will bo any thing but attractive if not kept in order bv cood cloves and shoes; and soft elinpiner curls will crow tousled aud unshiny if not constantly brushed. There are certain rules that custom and nature demand wo should obey, and wo must conform to some conventionalities in dress and many details of toilet. Tho world is full of boautiful things, and it is fusty-musty nonsense to believe wo must not mako use of them and keep ourselves up to tho standard they set beforo us. There is no longer anything roman tic in setting one's self up as simplii ity personified and going against society's usages. ltut, to bo more definite, tho hair is woman's crowning glory, and she can not give it too much attent on. It should bo brushed with a soft brush, smoothed with her own soft hands, shaken and aired, twisted and curled ad libitum. Ladies with heavy, long suites of hair aro much exercised over k o e p i n g it freshly washed or shampooed. It is a very tiresome thing to do one's self ; but most oi them try to do it. Thev break their backs, they say, bending over a basin for half hour, only to swing their arms oiT fanning it dry the ensuing hour. Then, nine times out of ten, they do not get it thoroughly dried, give up exhausted, "let it dry itself," nnd wake up next morning with a terr.blo coM in their heads. Consequently when a bright littlo woman said to r.s tho other day, "1 wash ray hair every week, my bang sometimes every day, and it only takes less than tivo minutes to dry it," wo went down upon our kuecs nnd bo sought her to reveal the howwithal sho did it. "i'erhaps you will not want to try it," sho said," ''but all the fashionable hair-dressers rerommend it, and lhavo tried it and find it makes tho hair soft r.nd llutty, cleanses thesc.ilp thorough ly, and the heaviest head of hair can lo washed and dried in ten minutes. I wash my hair in gasoline." "Gasoline!" wo fairly shriek. "That dreadful smelling st ill? Yen would never get tho odor out of your hair in your life." Yes, I do. It is all gono by tho time you can shako your hair out thoroTighly, leaving not a trace behind. Tho odor" is certainly pretty strong while you are using it, but not stronger than ammonia, which so many ladie use. Ammonia nnd gasoline aro tho only cleaners you can uo which will keep light-colored hair in its natural shade. Thcro is no brand of soap but will make it darker. No lady who has onco used gasoline with anything else. will ever bother You had better try it." Well, shampoo your hair how you will, if you mako "any pretensions to youth and stylo you must adopt tho new "Diana" coitluro as we illustrate it front and back. Tho hair is brushed up Aery high and fastened with an in visible comb, not in tho middle of the head as formerly, but almost over the forehead and then ar ranged there in a bunch of loops and curls, with small light curls all around the forehead and ears. The loug back hair in three or four heavy curls is held closely at the napo of the neck by a fancy pin. This coiffure may bo dressed in two ways. If tho hair is short or thin all tho hair should bo brushed up in tho front, and for tho curls at tlio back false hair will be necessary, or if tho hair is thick, tho front may be divided for tho tojipct or front bunch, and tho back strand left to fall in tho curls at tho neck. How Tliry llxtlie. Tho New York girl, when sho bathes at all, attitudinizes with half her slight ly clad person out of water, looking for all tho world like a merry mer maid. Tho "Baltimore beauty plungc.i boldly in ana is generally seen neaa nnucr -watc? with symmetrical incarnadine hosiery waving high above the water's bluo. The New Jersey girl is timid and usually requires a pair of stout arms to hold her. If there is no gallant on hand to toss her through tho breakers she hugs tho rope. Ibo lrgima girls at Old l'oint and Capo May swim and tumblo like dol phins, aud love to swim out to the life boat, and clambering into it, take a long div coming up close to tho shore. The fashionable Philadelphia g'rl is very particular to have somebody "nice go in with her, and is usually so exclu sive that she won't oven bathe in the same ocean with any one not of her set. Tho lloston bollo prefers to take her ablutions in private, but her favorite wrinkle at Narragansctt is to lie at tho odgo of tho surf, and when it wots her on one side then roll over and get wet on the other. French maids at tho seaside hotels, as a rule, put on an old skirt, without stockinps, and go trooping into tho otvf&n about dusk. Timely Topics. no tho o life of a sea son we aro in the death of it. The hot suns of Au gust fairly upon us, we aro treated to a few hint-t on autumn fffsh ions. It is authoritively announced tho great fa vorite is to be dark moss green trimmed with black. Black braiding is placed either around tho extremo edge of jupe or in panels at each side pointing up toward tho waist. Of courso tho black moiro vest is worn as usual. Combination kid boots with green cloth tops, a lighter ahado of green stockings, and tan Suodo gloves complete tho walking outfit, with a black felt hat and a plume or a dainty green capo of velvet or felt or both combined. Another color, more used for house woar as a demi-toilet or sim ply visiting dress, is tho so-callled Bois do Kose, a soft, ruddy brown like the mellow shading of tho autumn leaf. Black is to bo used to trim every thing, and a great comfort it will be to small purses, for it allows a black hat, umbrella, gloves, and boots, and does away with countless accessories as necessities. In somoof tho present houso dresses, broad-striped woolen materials aro neatly combined with plain-colored fabrics. In one, navy bluo camel's hair cloth composed tho basque and drapery, tho skirt, which was made plain, being of a red and bluo striped canvas cloth. This skirt was fully visiblo upon tho sides, where tho , draperies wero looped to tho hips, and tho stripes wero run vertically. In front, however, tho long, gracefully draped iahlier almost entirely con cealed it, tho back draperies having tho same effoct in tho rear. Tho basque was trimmed with cufls having fine red braid embroideries upon them, a collar and narrow rovers of tho same being worn. Tho latter inclosed a plaited white chemisette. Silvered motal but tons wero worn. Dresses of white muslin, trimmed with embroidery and pearl buttons, with tho occasional addition of lace, are exceedingly popular, and for cool ness cannot be surpassed. Tho sleeves aro usually left unlined, and in many cases the sleeves, together with round spaces on the throat and shoulders, aro of laco. Tho latter fashion is not, how ever, commendable for its good taste. A tasteful trimming for a round straw hat may bo formed by drawing a broad band of dark-colored velvet about tho base of tho crown. Over this draw a band of cream-colored laco of exactly tho name width. Kibbon of cream color, ami oi the same tint as tho velvet, should be made up in bows or knots, which are then placed ono above another, upon tho front, to tho height ol the crown. A wing, or a spray of forget-me-not, marguerites, or similar simple blossoms completes tho hat. Heliotrope continues in favor for millinery purposes, all tho colors cm ployed being of tho more delicato shades, as befits the season. Charles X. and "Knglish" pink roraain in favor, nnd tho shades of .groni aro particu larly varied nnd numerous. '1 all straw shapes nro most favored, nnd, with sailor hats and some turbans, almost monopolize tho Hold of millin ery. Tho capoto is, however, difficult to vanquish nnd still rema ns fashiona ble, though theso styles aro not much worn by young or unmarried ladies. Thoy seem to best suit matronly heads. Tho variety of cajioto most used is a helmet shapo which comes to a hharp point just abovo tho center of tho fore head. )iifoii Hinl l'rlnrr. Our readers may liko to f-eo how tho Queen of England nnd tho l'rincesi of Wales wero dressed at their last draw- ing-room reception.

X rr imr-isrlIKRE is KTrii Ml fRainsayin VJRV Ml N that in r. m midst of th it mm1- ml Restaurant Culls. Tho dinner is cheap restaurants is often puzzled by strango orders shouted by waiters. Tho customary waiter lajs his cars back and howls an order to the kitchen, as if for tho purpose of letting the wholo congregation know what each member of it intends to eat; then saunters to tho porthole opening into the culinary department and converses with tho cook. If ho would communi cate the order in a confidential tono and yell his conversation with the cook it would please the clients better; but a waiter on $0 a week cannot afford to own or at least to exhibit aU the graces of high society. Like tho stage and the gypsy camp, tho cheap restaurant has its peculiar slang and idiom, and it speaks a language that few of tho pub lic know. Hero are a few of tho nouns in its vocabulary, with the definitions thereof in every-day Knglish : "One," is an oyster stow. "Three on," three butter cakes. "Pair o sleeve-buttons," is two balls. "White wings, ends up," aro poached eggs. "Ono slaughter cn tho pan" is a por ter houso steak. "Coflee in tho dark" and "slops in a cup with the light out" signify coffeo without milk. "Brown a plato o' wheat" and "stack o' whites" indicates that a customer wants wheat cakos. "Tea soparate" means that tho milk for the tea is not to bo poured into tho cup. but served in a pitcher. "Cannon balls" aro crullers. "Beef and" means beef and beans. "Stars and stripes" aro pork and beans. This term also applies to ba con. "Brass band without a leader" is a plate of beans without perk. "Summer timo" is bread and milk. "Murphy with his coat on" is a boiled potato, unpeeled. " Whito wings, sunny side up," are fried eggs. "Bico both," "bread both," etc., means that rice, bread and other pud dings aro to bo served with both wino sauco and butter sauce. "Bice, hard only," means that rico pudding is to be served with butter sauco. "Balo o' hay" is corned beef and cabbage. "Let tlio blood follow tho knifo" is raro roast beef. "Holy poly" is strawberry pudding. "Solid shot" is apple dumpling. "Mealy bustio" is mealy potato. "Ham and" signifies ham and eggs. "Shipwreck" is scrambled eggs. "Hen fruit" is boiled eggs. "Tea no" is tea without milk. "Dyspepsia in a sno A-storni" is minco pie sprinkled with sugar. "Hash no is hash without onions. "Mystery" is hash. "Brown-stono front" is another name for porterhouso steak. "Chicken from on high" is tho best cut of chicken. "Cosmopolitan" is Neapolitan ico cream. "Let tho chicken wado through it" is chicken soup. Some keepers of restaurants whero those amusing orders havo been in daily transmission for years havo com pelled their waiters to forego this stylo aud to communicato orders to tho cook in every-day Knglish. It is only tho "What'li vo have, damver" kind o' servitor who persists in it. A Popular Bane-Ball Player. Thcro is no more popular man on tho ball field to-day than "Old Silver" ITint, of tho Chicagos, and he needs v ":i'sfetrw; vis- no other introduction to base-ball en thusiasts. "Old Silver" is not hand some, but is whole-soulod and gonial, and a back-stop whoso equal remains to be found. Klint is no record player ho has no ao to grind and tho man agement of the Chicago team knows it. Ono of tho veterans of the Chicago club, he nevertheless resisted tlio temptation for fast life that destroyed tho useful ness of players who, wero iinot for that one fault, were unorpualod on tho ball field. The Force or Hahlt. It's an awful thing, force of habit. It's accountable for a great deal of misery and a great deal of happiness. Most things arc dono from forco of habit. Betting, drinking. loving, hat ing, all become habits, and can't bo got over. A fellow goes courting, and it's awfully pleasant. At first it's novelty and fun, then it becomes habit, and they think it is love. Tho girl goes away for a month. Ho pines for a week, nnd when sho comes back she's got out of the habit, and he's got into the habit of courting another girl, and it's All up. ";lv THE SUNDAY-SCHOOL !Ww on the Lesson for September 4 " Trust In Our Heavenly Father." (From Chicago Fandard. IJy Iter. J. M. Coon. Tho subject fur tho lesson for tho 4th of September may bo found in the sixth chapter of Matthew, from the twenty-fourth to the thirty-fourth verses. Time, summer, A. D. l'lac e, Mount of beatitudes. tsriXIAL MENTION. The Sertrion on the Mount. It is claimed by some that no aualyni.- can bo male of this discourse of Curisf, and that nuiio ahould be VUtinj-tod. but mo may Lxj quito ure that this greatest sermon hy tnen-atest ot preach ers is not a mero throwing ttgethcr of inco herent and hrckon parts, howover good in themselves. The folio mug is one of the best outlines of the wholo ermou: Tho book of Matihew presents Jesus a Mcfsiah-King as does no other book of tho lhble.
