notwithstanding the relief which has been

But with everything in its favor, except

Pig Iron Kelley's district was an attack
upon the citadel. The out works have

That spirit, confident in the glow of pa
triotic enthusiasm, aud certain of final
vie ory, cannot be disheartened They

advance may be retarded ; it is impossi

Sullivan, the musical half of the firm
of Gilbert and Sullivan, is disgruntled.
He is not satisfied with the reception
"The Gondoliers" ha» met in the United
States. He Bay* that the company has
? Misrepresented the opera, and the papers
have misrepresented tbe company, and
he la mad. The plain truth seems to
that the unprecedented success of several
corps prevailing among
aud the tàriff re
light operas has turned the heads of the
firm of Gilbert and Sullivan. They have
conceived the idea that they are tight
opera purveyors to the world at
large, and anything to which
they attach their brand must go. It
mnst not only go, but it must go
with applause, and must bring in money.
If a light opera put out, by them Is not
applauded by the public, the fault Is
with the public, uot with the light
opera. Consequently when "The Gon
doliers" failed In New York Mr. Light
music Sullivan got mad and abused
everybody, including the newspapers and
the public. Mr. Sullivan may succeed iu
changing the opinion of the public but it
is more likely that he will succeed in
making himself ridiculous. Even now,
the public is laughing at his ineffective
Tnn recent race agitation has recalled
the remark of Victor Hugo, that the
Ethiopean would, iu the process of ages,
change his skin from its dark hue to a
lighter shade, and that all humanity
would eventually become white. The
ethnologists have taken up the prophecy
with more or less vehemence, and more or
less knowledge to discover what they
could make out of the discussion. It
would be well for them to bear on« fact
In their minds, namely, that the Euro
pean race will dominate the world. The
negro, as the Aztec and the American
Indian, may degenerate and be decimated
by exposure, war and disease. He may
remain stationary in the forward march
of civilization till he is outstripped. He
may advance with such relative slow
ness as not to obtain a place,
even, with the all-conquering European,
In any case it seems folly to expect that
he will do more than follow at a distance.
The facts concerning the increase or de
crease in the numoers of the negro race
do not affect the question at issue.
Statements and statistics vary according
to the prejudices of the respective
writers. One proves that the negro is
••dying out," another proves, sometimes
by the same statistics, that the race is
increasing rapidly. However that may
be, it may be accepted as a fact, that
history, experience and the present con
ditions of the two races confirm with ab
solute certainty, that the European will
dominate the world. The negro may take
second place, but it seems more likely
that he will "be lost- in tbe shuffle."
A QUESTION TO SETTLE
The difficulty in the Presbyterian
Church over the Westminster confession
it the legitimate result of a greater evil.
In 18<I9, for mercenary and ambitious
motives, tbe New School and Old School
wtags of the Presbyterlau Church united.
Their doctrines were a.« divergent as the
doctrines which lately divided the Pres
bytery of New York, when it voted for a
revision of the confession.
The fact is the churches consented to a
union of convenience. Now they find
that they are united physically and sepa
ated in faith. It is the natural conse
quence of allowing the whoopers, the
sentimentalists, the business men and
the politicians to run the church courts.
It war urged that one big church
could fight the devil more effectively and
cheaper than two small churches; that
the church should present a solid front
to the enemy ; that It did not matter about
doctrines, S) long as the two churches
could unite barmofllounly iu the same
The event proves that the feather
heads were wrong. The churches which
were diilcreut iu doctrine then are dif
feront now. The event proves that the
doct rines which were ignored iu the union
of the two churches then, have arisen to
divide them again now. Tho $veut
Droves that » union of )>»ads I» not a
union f>f he*rts ( and t h*t the doctrines
which were uot agreed to then must be
•P'eed to now, or there will be two
Churches and preachers may err just
as other men and other organ!zatiors
may err. The errors they make should
be corrected just as the errors in profane
affairs are corrected. The quicker the
Presbyterian church divides agaiu, or
looks the difference of doctrine squarely
in the face, the sooner aud the better It
will he settled.
So loug as the future destination of
the heathen, and of tbe infants was ig
nored, things weut on very well, but now
since the questions are up, the heathen,
the iufauts and all CbristenJom demaud
that they shall be definitely assigned to
some more comfortable surroundings iu
the groat hereafter.

New Casti.k, Feb. 19.—At the City
Court lost nicht Rachel Benson, colored,
was charged with disorderly conduct and
with using abusive language to Sarah
Jane Emory, of the same fraternity.
After an exhaustive list of witnesses had
been beard, Mayor Hanson sentenced
Rachel to a fine of $2 50 and costs, and
held her in $50 bail to keep the peace.
Rachel then arose and made the court,
room fairly shake with vile language and
oaths, whicli were repeated by her friends
ana those of the plaintiff. The mavor
ordered her to be silent twice, but to no
avail, and two stalwart policemen seized
the frantic women, and in a short time
she was languishing in the "colored
ladies' cell," in the county jail. Both
factions of the women have been a menace
and a nuisance to tbo whole community
for years, with their abusive language
and vile deeds. Rachel will, do doubt,
have thirty days to repent in, and in the
meantime if the other crowd continue to
disturb the peace of the city they will be
summarily treated as common nuisances.

WHEN ROM ANCEWASOVER
Miss Dora Dwight, on her thirtieth birth
day, received the first love letter of her life—
the first offer of marriage. It was handed
into the dormitory of the Physicians' Or
phans' home—not, as may be supposed, a
borne for the orphans doctors have made, but
for the children of deceastsi medical men.
Miss Dwight was matron there, and at the
moment was changing the pillowcases before
"I stipiKise it's aliout Johnny Gilroy and
tils swelled knee," said the servant. "Dr.
Emory soetnsto think it wuss."
Miss Dwight, however, waited until the
girl was gone before she opened the not«.
Then, not greatly to ber surprise, she read
"My Dkar Doha -.You have known me
since you were a baby. Do you like me well
enough to marry me? Of course, you and I
have given up romance long ago. I have had
two wives. You musthethirty-twoortliree."
["Just thirty," said Dora to herself; "he is
sixty-nine."] "You will greatly improve
your [Kwition by marrying me, and I always
liked you. Please meet me in tbe garden
after hours. I hope to find you under tbe
willows. Yours, hopefully, B. Emory."
it was not a love letter calculated to flatter
tlie heart of a woman of any age. At first
she said: "I will refuse him.
meiubered how good and kindly he was. "I
will accept him," she said, "bat no romance
shall be in my talk with him. He shall find
mo like a stone. He shall bave the sort of
wife he want«."
It was early when the door bell clanged,
anil a foot crossed the long passage, and,
ceasing to echo on the painted floor, struck
tbe stones. Earlier than she bad expected
him. but she was ready for him under the
willows iu the garden.
"I am glad to find you here," said a deep,
old voice, "1 thought you would be sensible
enough to do whatlasked, butl wasnot quite
sure—not quite. No. You have read my
note carefully? Yes? Well, imagine timt I
say to you again what I wrote. I await your
answer with anxiety."
She looked at him, and he saw that she
smiled in an odd, emtairrasged way.
"Will you marry me, my dear?" he added.
"1 see I must make it utsier for you to
"it was a little hard to begin," she said.
"Tbo usual reason moves me," he said.
"Pm in love with you. 1 think it best to
marry agaiu, and I know no one like you—
no one. I've had two wives before, I admit
However, ueither of them complained of me,
I believe, 1 have a very nice borne, and,
really, it will lie a very much better position
for you than being mutron of an institution.
You do it admirably, butl bate to see you
here. Your father was older than I, but we
were great friends. I think be would advise
you to sny 'yes,' "
She put bet Laud upon his arm.
"lam a very practical woman," she said.
"If 1 marry you 1 forfeits good position that
may be mine for life—an independent posi
tion. It is dangerous," 1
"My dear, yöu'li have half of all that Is
mine; and I'm not poor."
"You don't think the young, I know," sbo
answered, " Win) thinks a woman young at

men, oldri' tban I. They'll not approvo of
"They are not at home; it can't matter,"
said Dr. Emory.
"But," said Miss Dwight, with cruel dis
tinctness, "the trouble will come When you
die. You have made a mistake; you are
older than poor father. If you leave me a
widow your sons will make every effort to
take everything from me; I shall be left with
nothing, my place gone, my habits of indus
try, my briskness. I make no doubt you
have heard of such cases; 1 havo."
Tbe suitor sat—and who can marvel at it?—
stricken quite dumb by this speech. At last
"You are candid."
"I am," she answered—"I am, indeed. Now
is your time. You can take back your offer,
Dr. Emory. Everything can be as it was
before. I 'll tear up your letter; I am con
tent that all shall remain as it is."
"But, then," he answered, "I am not.
After all, all you sny is only true. I can face
the music, I hope. Mv answer is this: Marry
me, and I will make a will, leaving you
everything, on our wedding day."
"That would be unjust," she said. "It
would be a will to be contested. Leave me a
home and an income." She named tbe sum
sufficient, to keep it up.
"That is moderate—sensible. And you will
say 'yes,'" he said. "I promise, of course, I
shall make it better than that, still leaving
my sons no cause for complaint; but it is not
my fault that we are not more romantic."
"Let the romance come afterward, if it
can," said Miss Dwight.
After this, they walked about the garden
aw hile, and the day of the wedding was set,
leaving time to find a new matron for the
establishment. Miss Dwight was certainly,
us domestics say, "bettering herself;" but she
was not elated.
In fact, a little regret stole into her heart
as she walked about the place where site had
been so independent, so respected; and won
dered whether she should be happy in the

The bell tinkled iu the hall just as supper
time was over that evening, aud iu a few
momouts a servant came to call Miss Dwight.
"It's a gentleman ; he don't know who he
wants," she said. "Some one who knows all
about the place, he told me."
Aud Dora weut into tbe parlor, a bare look
ing room, long, and with white walls, a panel
carpet, a library table, a horsehair sofa, and
six chairs, and the portrait of tbe founder of
the home over the mantelpiece. There stood
under this portrait, with his elbow on tho
inarbio itself, a gentleman. Dark eyed, dark
haired, with a face that was not
handsome as delightful.

The moment bad came to Mist Dwight.
She had waited thirty years for it, and now
she did not know what it meant. But an un
conscious smile came to tier lips, a light to
lier soft blue eyes, a flush to her smi ioth cheek.
Kite looked prettier than she could have
dreamed possible of at that moment.
The stranger told his business,
cently come from Paris, where lie had been
occupied in certain affairs for ten years.
Meanwhile his brother had died, having re
cently lost Ids wife. He understood, to Ids
astonishment, that his Utile nephews were iu

he said. "I am a bachelor, but 1 can arrange

was being drilled ill tier duties by Miss

son" was over. The caterers expocted only a
little chunoe custom. It was a day when
driving clonds made it cool enough to be
pleasant. There he sat down behind a big
mound of sand, und watched the sea, and
thought of Maria, und how he used so often
to kiss the back of her neck because the two
little curls looked so cunning, and how she
thought him handsome; how dear they wore
to each other I
How long his reverie had lasted lie did uot
know, when merry voices sounded in his ear.
A man's tones, those of two little boys, and
n woman's. Surely be knew the last speaker.
He peeped from under his big Panama bat,
and saw Dora She hat brought .tbe Ellwood
boys down for a holiday, at their uncle's re
quest, anti he bail come also. Dr. Emory
guessed who the gentleman was, for he had
had the case of these boys laid before him,
and was looking for two orphaus to fill their
places when they should be gone, but the
preeenceof Mr. Ellwood gave bira-offense. "It
has quit the air of a family party," he said.
The boys played about, dug with their lit
tle spades anil Ailed with white sand those
(minted (mils which all good picnickers buy
at tbe seaside. They took off their shoes and
stockings and waded along the edge of the
water. The elder people seemed as happy as
they, and how young ! At last they sat down
very near to Dr. Emory, with their backs to
his sand burrow, and lie saw a man's brown
band drop upon a little white one and hold it
tight Without showing himself be could
uot see their faces.
"Do you know why I asked you to come
here?" said the owner of the brown hand.
"To mind the children, as Sally says," re
plied the owner of the white hand.
"No, to tell you something," said Brown
Hand. "Darling little woman, prettiest and
sweetest of ail created beings, I bave loved
you from the ßrst moment I met you. Do
you think you would mind marrying a man
who lias his fortune yet to UhlkeJ Could vou
be poor with binij UJU yet Le happy? You
see I am pfiôr, but I adore you and I'm selfish
enough to ask you to do just that for my
sake, tf you can try to love me."
The white hand fluttered. A soft voice
I should not have to try it," she sobbed.
"It seems to come of itself, and as for pov
erty, I'd rather bog with you than live with
out you and have millions. Ob i don't look
liuppy, don't look happy, dear, w hen we both
must beso miserable. I'm engaged; my wed
ding day is set. I thought 1 had outlived
romance, and I promised to marry an old
man who only wants a lady at the head of bis
house. Obi why did you uot come to me one
Silence fell Dr. Emory heard them rise
and go away. In a minute more a little boy
rushed up to tbe sand mound and poked it
with his spade
"Here's a dead man," be said; "adrownded
"No; It's a tipsy man," replied Billy. "Let's
pile sand on him."
This they proceeded to do, until Billy de
scried "uncle beckoning," and they deported
on the run.
After tbo last train had gone cityward, an
elderly gentleman took a sandwich and some
ale at tbe hotel before getting into bis gig.
lie emptied a gnat ileal of sand out of bis
pockets, did uot lee the waiters, and scorned
to be, the cashier said, "in a temper." It was
Dr. Emory. Ho drove straight home, and
sut down at bis dosk.
"Thank lieavcu, I can apjiear to have the
liest of her," he said, spitefully. "But the
next time I pro(iose to a woman I will not
tell her that romance is out of the question."
Then he wrote:
Miss Dwiobt— I am an old mac, but I And I
have made a mistake. I have too much romance
teft in me to marry you. Auy pecuniary recoin
(tense you desire 1 will offer; anil, if you tike, tbe
matron's place, is again yours. Esoby.
Miss Dwight only noticed this note by pack
ing lier engagement ring in pink cotton and
sending it back. She did not want the ma
tron's place, and she married Mr. Ellwood
Dr. Emory is now courting a girl of 16, who
vows she adores bun, and wishes very loudly
that he were hers. He likes it.—ilary Kyle

Docs Bismuth Kill ( loons?
In connection with tbe immediate cause of
Fox's death, it is a strange coincidence that
several American clowns, and at least one
English (Hititoiuimist, have all died insane.
Hitherto tlie general te-krf among prolcssion
als has been that the quantity of bismuth
used iu "making up"(particularly in America,
w here tho hair is cropped close aud tbe bis
muth rubbed iuto tbe side of tlie head) had a
great deal to do with the disease. But one
old (nntomimist still living solemnly attests
that, so far as bis experience went, the bis
muth not only left his faculties unimpaired,
but had tbe merit of healing sores and crocks
in tbe skin.—Gentleman's Magazine.
