"STAR SPANGLED BANNER"
I was in Washington a few days prior to
tbe inauguration of Lincoln, having been
sent there by Harpers to take sketches
when that event should come off. I did
nothing but walk around the city and feel
the public pulse, so to speak. There was
no necessity of saying anything to any
body. You intuitively recognizod that
trouble waa brewing.
Many people had sworn that Lincoln
should not lie inaugurated. Their utter- 1
ances had fired the northern heart, and
the people loyal to the old Hag were just as
determined that the lawfully-elected presi
dent should be inaugurated, though blood
should flow in the attempt. It was an
awful time. People looked different then
than they do now. Little knots of men
rould be seen conversing in whispers on
street corners, and even the whispers
ceased when a person unknown to them
approached.
Everybody seemed to suspect every one
else. Women looked askance at each
other; children obliged to be out would
skurry home as if frightened, probably
having been given warning by their par
ents. The streets at night for several
nights prior to the inaugural ceremonies
were practically deserted. There was a
hush over everything. It seemed to me
that the shadow of death was hovering
near.
I hod constantly floating before my eyes
sable plumes and trappings of woe. I
could hear dirges constantly, and thought
for a while that I would have to leave the
place or go crazy. I knew all these somber
thoughts were but imagination, but I also
knew that the something that had influ
enced my imagination was tangible, really
existed.
The 4th of March came and Mr. Lincoln
was inaugurated quietly and without oston
tation. After the services were over and it
became known that Mr. Lincoln had really
been inducted into oflice, there was a sav
age snarl went up from the disaffected
ones. The snarl was inftctious. It was
answered by just as savage growls all over
the city, but nothing was said. A single
yell of defiance, a single pistol shot or even
an oath would have precipitated a conflict.
Men simply glared at each other and
gnashed their teeth, but wore careful not
to grit them so it could be heard.
I went to my room in the Willard and sat
down to do some work. I couldn't work.
The stillness was oppressive. At least a
dosen times I picked up my pencils, only
to throw them down again. I got up and
paced tbe floor nervoualy. I heard men on
either aide of me doing the same thing.
Walking didn't relieve the severe mental
strain. I sat down in a chair and pressed
my head in my hands. Suddenly I hoard a
window go up and some one step out on
the balcony of the Ebbitt house, directly
opposite. Everybody in the hotel had
heard him. What is he going to do? I
aaked myself, and I suppose everyone else
propounded the same interrogation. We
hadn't to wait long.
He began to sing the Star Spangled Ban
ncr in a clear, strong voice. The effect
was magical — electrical. One window
went up, and another, and heads popped
out all over the neighborhood. People
began to stir on tbe streets. A crowd soon
gathered. The grand old song was taken
up by thousands. The spell was broken,
and when the song waa finished tonguea
were loosened and cheer after cheer rent
the air.
The man rooming next to me rapped on
my door and insisted that I should take a
walk with him. As we passed along the
corridors we were joined by others, men
wild with joy, some of them weeping and
throwing their arms around each others'
necks. Others were singing and all were
happy.
Washington was itself again. Tbe Star
Spangled Banner bad saved it,—Thomas
Nast in Boston Standard.
THE NEW "SAWBATH" IN SCOTLAND
Stmt Can Run and rtuseums Open tn Spite
of V*» amines
For some time past it has been painfully
evident to the student of men and things
north of the Tweed that Scotland is degen
erating—that she is slowly but surely fall
ing from her high estate. During the
past few years many and wonderful
changes have occurred in the northern
kingdom, but perhaps the most note
noteworthy of these is the extraordinary
change which haa taken place in tlie ob
servance of the first day of tbe week. When
tlie magistrates of Glasgow a few years
ago authorized the running of tramway
cars on Sunday, it was predicted
that a terrible judgment would fall upon
that city on account of its wickedness, and
perhaps it is due to the gloomy prognosti
cations of the Sabbatarian Cassandras that
no other town in Scotland has followed in
the wake of Glasgow, When the Edin
burgh Botanic gardens were thrown open
on Sundays another wail went forth; but,
alssl notwithstanding threats of "judg
ments" the public throng there. And, in
spite of tbe shrieks and denunciations of
the Sabbath Observance society, steamers
laden with passengers ply in the Firth of
Forth every Sunday during the season;
coaches convey pleasure seekers from the
town to tbe country and cyclists "scorch"
along the roads of Scotland in all direc
tions.
Quite lately the battle of Sunday golf
was fought and ended in a victory for the
Sunday golfer; and on every band there
are signs that tbe old-fashioned ijcottish
"Sawbath" has "departed, never to return."
A most remarkable proof of this is fur
nished by the plea of a deputation which
waited upon the lord provost of Edinburgh
this week. The members of the deputa
tion were for the most part eminent minis
ters and ollice bearers of tbe Free Church
of Scotland, who in time past were con
sidered rigid Sabbitarians. Some of them,
indeed, are members of the Sabbath Ob
servance society. Yet this deputa
tion interviewed the lord provost
in the interests of those who used to be
considered Sabbath breakers. There was
a time, not very long ago, when the heinous
sin of vaging or stravaigmg (1. c. walking)
on the Sunday was punishable by im
prisonment in the stocks; but it was in tlie
interests of stravaigers that the present
day Sabbattarians solicited the .Lord Pro
vost to prevent golf playing on the Braid
hill ou Sundays. They stated distinctly
that tbey did not appear as objectors to
Sunday golf, but simply contended that
the bills should be left safe and quiet for
those who do not play golf, but who eujoy
a ramble on Sunday. Of a verity Scotland
is degenerating!
Of course, there are still some stalwarts
who, faithful to the traditions of their fore
fathers, uphold tbe good old Scottish "Saw
bath" as a day upon which no man shall
bo seen to smile. A few of these were
gathered together in Aberdeen the other
rlay, and endeavored to console themselves
by predicting, as they have many times
before done, the judgments which fall upon
the present sinful generation of Scotsmen.
The secretary of the Sabbath Alliance of
Scotland, tbe Rev. J. M. Shiaoh, buoyed up
himself and his hearers with tbe hope that
the opening of museums aud picture galle
ries may be unsuccessful, but he was hor
ror stricken to note that the Prince of
Wales had a yacht at the race at Uyeres
on Sunday last week,and he made the awo
inspiring prediction that "if tbe heir ex
pected to sit on tbe tbrone and to outrage
divine institutions in this way it was more
likely, looking forward to the future, that
the throne would sit on him than that be
would sit on tbe throne." What was
meant by this threat was not quite clear to
the audience, but, looking upon it as some
thing very terrible, tbey applauded hearti
ly. Another clergyman denounced as un
christian certain "at homes" which he had
heard bad been given by "elders" on Sat
urday night. People, he said, should be
preparing for the "Lord's day." An ex
f armer, who followed the reverend gentle
men, denounced tbe sale of milk on Sun
day, and told how thirty years ago ha was
asked to bring milk to town on Sunday and
had refused. Ha would rather have "put
the milk down tha burn." All his cus
tomer*, agreed to take their milk on the
Saturday evenings, "except one rich lady,
and she died a few weeks afterward." But,
alasl The Scottish Sabbath-breakers, and
they are legion, only scoff at such judg
ments.
Take Care ol Your Shoes
Since shoes have atsumed so much im
porta ice it is worth while to know how
best to take care of them. Firstbf all, have
them fit properly, and this means plenty
of length and plenty of room. Small feet
have gone out of fashion, the object now
being to have the feet look slender and
trim. The long, pointed shoe has had much
to do witli the cultivation of symmetry
about the feet. A shoe too tight is a con
stant strain upon tlie leather and the
sea ins, and is neither durable nor attract
ive. If the shoes are worn in the wet they
must be removed at once, rubbed dry and
oiled until diey are as soft as it is possible
to make to make them. If they are wet,
as is sometimes the case when one is caught
in a shower, they should be laced or but
toned up and tilled with grain. For
lack of something better ordinary whtte
beana will answer. They take the water
up very quickly and swell, thereby keeping
the shoe in shape. When nearly dry the
shoes should be taken in hand and oiled
until they are in fine condition. Cloth shoes
should be brushed with a great deal of ewe.
Many ladies brush their shoes too much,
thus wearing out the cloth and taking off
the flue polish of the leather.
A great deal has been said about tlie ad
vantage of having a number of pairi of
shoes at one time. As it is a well under
stood fact that leather becomes somewhat
dry and cracked by age, the philosophy of
snch a practice might well be questioned.
It is fasliisnable to have one's shoes
match one's handsome dress; black un
dressed kid slippers and block satin slip
pers are olso stylish. One of the prettiest
is a tie of black satin. These are specially
liked for dressy use in the house. Tlie best
shoos are made with moderately heavy
soles. They may be worn on dry days
without rubbers, but thinner soles are worn
by many wymen who never step on the
street without too-straps. This is a com
fortable and sensible custom, and does
away with tho constant changing of shoes
as one goes in and out, a practice that is
extremely inconvenient, especially to
women who are at all stout, as tiie button
ing of one's shoes when dressed in the
average corset is a serious undertaking.—
Now York Ledger.
"The Last on Earth"
God bless all tlie aged women up and
down the land! What a happy thing Pom
ponious Atticus said, when making the
funeral address of his mother: "Though
I have resided with her sixty-seven years,
I was never once reconciled to ber, because
there never happened the least discord be
tween us, and, consequently, there was no
need of reconciliation." Make it as easy
for the old folks as you can. When they
are sick get for them the best doctors.
Give them your arm when the streets are
slippery. Stay witli them all the time you
can. (Jo home and see the old folks if you
are away from them. Find the place for
them in the hymn book. Never be ashamed
of them if they prefer styles of apparel a
little antiquated. Never say anything that
implies that they are in tlie way. Make
the road for the last mile as smooth as you
can. Oh, you will miss her when she is
gone! I would give tlie house over my
head to see my mother. I have so many
things I would like to tell her, things that
have happened in these many years since
she went away. Morning, noon and night,
let us thank God for the good influences
that have come down from good mothers
all the way down.
Do not let the grandmothers any longer
think that they are retired, and sit clear
back out of sight from the world, feeling
that they have no relation to it.
God tills the earth and heavens with
grandmothers. We must some day go up
and thank these dear old souls. Surely,
God will let us go up and tell them of the
results of their influence. Among our llrst
questions in heaven will be, "Where is
grandmother?" They will point her out,
for we would hardly know her, even if we
had seen her on earth, so bent over with.
years once, and now so straight, so dim of
eye through the blinding of earthly tears,
and now tier eye as clear as heaven, so
full of aches and pains once, and now so
agile with celestial health, the wrinkles
blooming into carnation rosea, hnd her
step like the roe on the mountain.—Dr.
Talmage.
.lake Life's Wheels Run Smoothly
Take time; it is no use to foam or fret,
or to do as tbe angry housewife who has
got hold of the wrong key, pushes, shakes
and rattles it about the lock until both
are broken tlie door is still unopened.
The chief secret of comfort lies in not
suffering trifles to vex us and in cultivat
ing our undergrowth of small pleasures.
Try to regard present vexations as you
will regard them in a month hence.
Since we cannot get what we like let us
like what we can get.
It is not riches, it is not poverty, it is not
human nature that is the trouble.
Tbe world is like a looking-glass. Laugh
at it and it laughs back; frown at it and it
frowns back.
Angry thoughts canker the mind and
dispose it to the worst temper in the world
—that of fixed .nalice and revenge. It is
while in this temper that some men be
come criminals.
Show your sense by saying much in a
few words.
Try to speak some kind word or do some
kind deed each day of your life. You will
be amply repaid.
Set your work to song.—Washington
Post.
Congressmen Economizing
"Things are coming to a pretty pass
these days," observed the keeper of a
Washington boarding house, "when con
gressmen are reducing their expenses.
Only a few days ago I found that one of
my congressmen boarders from a southern
state wsb looking up rooms and board for
himself and wife in another house, for tbe
reason, as his wife told me, that they
wanted to reduce expenses.' I charged them
$60 per month for room and board for
both, and they were actually trying to get
it for $40, though they finally bad to pay
$50. The wife told me that they wanted
to save $4000 per year out of ber hus
band's salary of $.1000, and that stie knew
of others who were doing so."—Washing

Hit and niss Mind Reading
It is told of a young man of this city
that he called on his best girl the other
evening. As conversation became dull
they sat on tho sofa at opposite ends, and,
after a silence of considerable duration,
evidently spent by both in bard thought,
she mustered up courage enough to ask
him what he was thinking about. He,
hoping to please her, replied;
"I was thinking of the same thing you
were."
She, turning around, answered quicker
than lightning, "I'll Blap your mouth if
you try it!"— Exchange.

The scorcher whizzed around the corner,

" Well, he may be a walking gentleman,

PERFECT LADIES AT PLAY
The Girls From tbe Cambridge and Yale
Gymnasium! Pull Hair
Fourteen young women, representing
some of the best known families in ('am
bridge and in New Haven, had a hairpull
ing contest wbilo playing a basket ball
game at Dr. Sargent's gymnasium, on
Church street, Cambridge, Mass., Thurs
day afternoon. The trouble arose over a
disagreement aa to tbe rules, and tbo
crowd of spectators, who had gathered to
witness the sport, was shocked to see the
proficiency in slugging which waa suddenly
developed. "Let go my hair," "There!
take that, you mean thing," "Biting and
scratching aren't allowed," "I'll ilx you,"
were some ot the expressions that wero
used, asangor Hashed from tho girls' eyes.
Tho row occurred in tlie llrst half of the
gamo. The second Half was tame ond
spiritless.
The New Haven team was made up of
girls from tho physical training school of
the Yale gymnasium. The Cambridge
team was composed of seven girls from a
similar school conducted by Dr. D. A. Sar
gent. The Cambridge team won by a score
of 21 to '_'.
About two weeks ago T)r. Sargent's girls
sent a challenge to New Haven, which was
accepted immodiatoly. No arrangements
were made about rules, and when W. H.
feck of tho Yale basket bill team and E.
15. Buckhain, Or. Anderson's assistant,
came up with the New Haven girls to see
Dr. Sargent they found that they could
not agree on rules. For about two hours
tiie three men discussed the two sots of
rules. Dr. Sargent supported a modified
set of rules such as are used by tlie differ
ent teams of girls in bouts. He held that
tho rules governing the game played by
men, commonly called tho Y. M. C* A.
rules, were not fit to govern a game be
tween women. Tlie Yale men, on the
other hand, supported the regular men's
rules, and would not back down. Finally
Dr. Sargent agreed that each side should
use its own rules in the game, but said that
lie must make an announcement of the
fact at the beginning of tho game.
Just as the game was about to begin Dr.
Sargent made a short speech, in which he
mentioned the disagreement in regard
to rules. He said that he did not think
the men's rules were lit for ladies, and
therefore his pupils would use the modified
rules.
Tlie chief difference in the rules, Dr. Sar
gent explained, was that tiie men's rules
allowed a person to knock the ball out of
a player's hands. The modified rules al
lowed a fair throw and regarded the body
as safe from touch until the ball had been
thrown.
When the game began it was apparent
that it was to be a bard contest. The girls'
snirits were up. It was as though Yale and
Harvard were represented
The play became rough almost immedi
ately. It was apparent that Dr. Sargent
had predicted correctly. The New Haven
girls scrambled for the ball, pushed and
tore in a hard way. Tho Cambridue girls
tried to be calm, but had to be rougli to
protect themselves. There was a large
amount of "holding," and many fouls wore
claimed against both teams. The differ
ence in tho style of play was clear. The
Cambridge girls played for the ball. Tiie
New Haven girls directed their attempts at
the players.
As a result of fifteen minutes' play the
Cambridge girla had live points to their
credit, while the New Haven girla had fail
ed to acore. The pupils of Dr. Sargent bad
beaten those of Dr. Anderson at their own
game,
At the end of the half both sides agreed
that it had been rough and unladylike, and
that to play another such half would bo
unseemly. Finally it was decided to play
the second half according to Dr. Sargent's
modified rules.
The Anderson girls had never played un
der these rules, so this part of the game
was rather tame. The team play of the
Sargent girls now counted and they coultl
put the ball wherever they pleased.
Score after score was made by them un
til their total was 21, while the Anderson
girls wero able by tho hardest kind of work
to get only two points.
The game as played in tho second htlf
waa quiet, with no unpleasant feature, and
fully justified the predictions made by Dr.
Sargent. It was tbe kind of gamo usually
played by the teams in the different fe
male colleges around Boston.
Dr. Sargent acted as referee and Messrs
Peck and Buckman of New Haven as um
pires. Mr. Peck criticised Dr. Sargent for
having objected to the New Haven girls'
style of play. Dr. Sargont, on the other
hand, said;
"The difference between our game and
theirs was the same old difference between
Harvard and Yale, only this time we won.
though for a part of the [tame we were
forced to a certain extent to play their own
game. Had I, however, allowed my girls
to play the game entirely as played by the
Anderson girls it would have been a blow
to basket ball from which it would hardly
have recovered. I only hope nothing that
happened this afternoon will hurt the game
for girls."
Russian Officialdom
An amusing yet suggestive instance of
the prevaiHng corruption among all classes
in Russia is shown in the following story:
One of the largest firms in the English
iron trade contracted for tho erection of a
bridge in Rusßia. Tlie bridge was erected
and official inspection invited, but on one
pretext or other it was put off until it be
came plain to the English contractors tha
unless they wore prepared to bribe the in
spector the bridge would not bo taken off
their hands. As they had cut tiie contract
very close they could not afford to do so.
and the official revenged himself by certi
fying the bridge to be unsafe. It had to be
taken to pieces and shipped to England.
The sequel is most suggestive of all. A
new tender "for a much larger sum" was
sent in by the same firm. It was accepted
The very same bridge that was sent to
Russia and brought back was forwarded
again, re-erected, examined by the same
official, received his approval and Was
taken over by the Russian government.
Of course, in their new tender, tho llrm
left an ample margin, and the official, re
ceiving a substantial "tip," approved of
the same bridge that he had formerly con
demned.—Pearson's Weekly.
Novel Safety Lamp.
The new safety lamp for mines, opera
ting upon a peculiar principle, is reported
as being in successful use in Germany.
A peculiarity of this lamp is noted—name
ly, that it is not closed in any special way.
like other lamps, and It matters very little
whether or not the workman, disregarding
the regulations of the mine, succeeds in
opening tbe lamp, for there is a special ar
rangement by means of which the flame is
extinguishable at the same instant. This
ia explained by there being in the interior
of the lamp glass a spring which is com
pressed when the upper piece is screwed
down, which enables a cap to operate upon
the wick in such a manner as to shift il
aside, facilitating the lighting of the lamp
and aftorwaid the combustion. When the
spring is worked in the contrary direction,
the cap again operates upon the wick, and
the flame ceases the moment the cap
comes in contact with the air. The lamp
can be lighted without being opened.
Hadn't the Time
A man asked for work at the door. The
lady of the bouse said that she would take
his name and address and see what could
be done for him. She offered bim a pencil
and bit of paper. "You write it, mum.'
he said. "I would write it, myself, but I
never learned to write." "Not even your
name?" she exclaimed. "No'm, I ain't
had the time." "Well, why not take time?
I'll teach you to write your name, at least.
It seems strange that an intelligent man
like you hasn't learned that. How did it
happen?" Well, mum, you see I went
and got married young, and I've always
been busy working, and I ain't had the
time for learning."—Boston Transcript.
"Should Major McKinley be nominated
at St. Louis, the facts about his ignorance
of practical affairs will be made more con
spicuous as the campaign progresses," the

prove to be a constantly increasing ele
ment of weakness, especially if the Demo
crats should put up a sound business man
an a sound business platform."
