There aro numerous funny Incidents growing out of the strict manner la which the piss system at the Treasury Department Is enforce I. Many of the more timid clerks have a great horror ot hating to report to the chief clerk when they are late. Some havo so dret led going "on record" that on arriving late they have given the doorkeepers assumed names. One morning not long ago among abont a dozen "latcs" there were four names given that were not on the Treasury rolls. To prevent this an daclousabueMr. Youmans Instructed the. chief of the watch, Capt. McCrca, to order the doorkeepers to tell ci cry clerk arriving late to write down his or her name and the olHce In which lie or she la err. ployed. One diy a Senator called at tho Treasury and pissed the watchman In a great hnrry. but the latter thinking he was a clerk ran afier htm and catching him by his arm demanded that he should come hack nud register his name. This the ludlirnant law-maker declined to do. and the door keeper was ranch demoralized when he found out uta mistake. EX-ASMSTANT RECUETAl! SMITH A IlKUIIIEtll." One day last week ex-ARslstant Secretary Smith called at the Treasury Department after 2 o'clock and was about to piss In, when the doorkeeper halted him. He did not let on as to his Identity, but asked If hcronldnot go up to seo Mr. oumans, the chief cierk. No, sir; you must go around to the mainFif teenth-Btrect entrance ami scud un vonr card nrst, and nml out It Mr. Youmans Is willing to see you," said the man at the door. "Then give me a piece of paper and an envelope and I will send a note un to him.' "Can't do that, sir; wc ain't authorized to supply penp'ewllh envelopes, and you'll have to go to the other entrance lo send up your card." Just then nn oittclil caino along nnd recognized the cx-Asslstant secretary, greeted him cordially, uuu uaKeil jiiiu in wuin tu men ii uawueu uu me doorkeeper, who hid been lately appointed, wno the ffenueman was, nun, stepping up lo mm, nc saw; "If touM told me In the first nlace vou were for merly an Assistant Secretary I'd let you In without a word, for 1 nm allowed to piss ex-ssistant Sec retariLsasdeailheals." sir. smith smiled and was much amused to see how faithfully some or the Treasurj rules he had once fathered were being observed.

So, summon ing her courage, she mounted tho steps of the build ing, and approaching the doorkeeper nt an entrance she had not been In the habit or going In, she Ured at him one of her most captivating glances ami said In the cutest way: "I want to go to the Life urflce,(Georgel but wc came near giving awav what oniceahelslutKwnn'lynu please direct me?" She was duly "directed ' and reached her home tiase with an unbroken record and a clear conscience, but sne una never uqen iu or oui oi mat uoor since.

We hive no doubt the noble animal expended In hla contest with his artlsilc Jockey's iron jnnsclcs as much strength as ho would have used had ho been allowed to Bet his own pace. The waiting race Is doubtless a line thing In Its place, but we confess to hai e seen dozens of races thrown away by this kin 1 of tactics, and we have never seen a race won by them. A horso can waste strength fighting his Jockey as well as In any other way. If Gleaner had been ridden by a weaker Jockey wo should have seen the record still more decisively broken. When wo saw that tremendous pull all along the hick-stretch we exclaimed sadly, "Gleaner won't win." The rule against smoking among ladles on the grand stand ought to be enforced.

For It may generally be noticed that what with Indian clubs, dumb bells, and fencing, (ami counting In tho volco beside,) your irB,a actor linpttouetr.no top-heavy all right up stairs, thougt somewhat queer In tho legs. Hut then the tragedy audience and applanso Is generally a little top heavy also, and thickest near tho roof, so honors aro cosy. Whllo the stalls and boxes may lend a languid hand of approial to hlj efforts, It Is from tho hard dated, hob-nailed thumps of the gallery, the good natured thunder of the "gods," that your heavy tra gedian nods his labors lightened by tho sweetest guerdon of applanso. There Is no such keen nnd discriminative critic of old-fashioned tragedy a the gallery god. Yo.tr inperclvlllzed awella below stairs may bo fooled by stage tricks of rant and fustian, but nature unspoiled and nntrammclpd abides among the peanut-shells aloft, and n tonch ot nature In the actor ts the crucial test with this most exact ing of dramatic Jnrles. lint It waa from all por tions of tho hooae allto that Washington's welcome thnndered upon Louis James last Monday night. At every curtain thero waa a deafening redemand, and after acts three and four tho fat onto actor and his lovely wlfo were brought back to the footlights again and again. On Tuesday night tho elasslo sheets and tab'c-oloths gave place to glesmlnir silk and satin, the clwiutctnto ruff and stomacher, hose and doublet. A laughing sprite, all sheen and sparkle, from beaming eyes to flashing Jewels, danced gaily upon the stage, tho fairest KeatrUt since Adelaide- Nellson, and as bllthesomo ami mag netic aa the wondrou Terry. It was Mario Wain wrlght's Innings, and she played II for all that It was worth. But the HeneatcK of Mr. James waa almost equally infused with tho airy and mocking spirit of the great dramatist, ami gave life and meaning to each word and Byllablo ot tho rnlo. Wednesday again theso two admirable artists divided the honors, ns Hamlet and Opliella, ami so throughout the week, which only space forbids ns the pleasure of following In detail, tho well balanced and contrasted genius of this gifted couple delighted largo and ap preciative housos. in tho lottlcrplane of tho actor's art which they havo chosen they will doubtless soon obtain the same sort ot friendly and familiar corner In the public heart that tho genial Florences so long hue held In the realms of comedy, llut with It all wo cannot help a regret that the exigencies of the tragedian career will for a long time lone to 113 the pleasure of renewing our acquaintance with Mr. James In some of the lighter roles of farce, comedy, In which ho won such well-earned laurels during his engagement In tho National's stock com pany some seasons back. The eternal illness of things though we don't exactly seo why seems to mito"Champagne and Oysters," for Instance, "For bidden Frull" to the Hamlet of yestere'en. Hut one play the James pair might well add lo their reper tory, and another season we hope to witness It for an accomplished fact. It Is more than twelve yearsslncc Augiislln Daly produced In sumptuous fashion for that period the "School for Scandal," wllhan almost Ideal cast, embracing such names as Fanny Daren port, Latin Teazle; Charles Flahcr, Sir I'i ter; George Clart, the best jctine ; einler of the lime, Clint lea kwfiin, and James Lewis, Sarah Jcwelt, aud Mrs. Ollbcrtln lesser roles. But by long odds the "hit of the piece throughout the rnn was the Jowph Sui -fate of Louis James. Every night his speech to Lailv Teazle, concluding "the consciousness of your own Innocence," and his sham slumber and awaking wllh".My-dear-Sir-Peter," were tho signals for the spontaneous and prolonged applause duo to n nn Ishcd lilt of acting worthy of the Comeillr fraii rnfsi'.

Miss Kiltie Wilson and Miss Knto Meek should also be mentioned for faithful and satisfactory work The plays were put upon the stage In a man ner most creditable to the management, not forget IPC the fact that two of them at least had been pre sented here during tho Irving engagements. The week at the Opora House opposite tho Presi dential Part has been rendered memorable by the farewell engagement of Mme. Janauschck. For many years she has been In our midst, the most powerful and Impressive exponent ot legitimate tragedy since Cbarlolto Cushman. The melancholy fire of thoso mysterious eyes, the low and awe compelling tones of that deep and vibrant voice, tho grandiose and Imperious poise and gesture will long remain In our memories as a noble and Ideal embodi ment of lorty tragical conception. So too the benefi cence of her work will long survive her departure, for tho Influence she has exercised upon our dra matic art has been wholly good and elevating, at a time when such Influence was most needed. The first four nights of the week were devoted to )tea Vet 1 tllet. In a version somewhat differing from that of Miss Cushman and Miss Anderson, yet In some respects on Improvement. Mme. .laqiuschek does not come upon the stsgo until tho third act, and till then the drama may be sabl to drag. But from the effective tableau of tier entrance tothe awful clmax of ber Uuith she holds the audience spell bound with all of her old-time power. Mr. Eberle, wjio sustains the role of iomnle hawon In the play, performed it for many years with Miss Cushman. It la a most finished and admirable crea tion, the Identical quaint, lovable old pedant, whom Sir Walter had In his thought and heart. The Vlrck. llatterUk of Mr. Beverly and the Vamlle Duunont of Mr. Chaplin were also creditable Im personations. With regard to the somewhat too plentiful Incidental music It may be aatd that If the Mannerleg and Bertram families were really ad dicted to that style of vocallam, death must have seemed a precious boon to any of their neighbors who couldn't afford to move. The President, who with Mrs. Cleveland attended the performance on Thursday night, looked aa If ho felt very much that way himself. The great 0 agetllenne'a portrayal of the dual roloof unhappy iVnfu lftaioi, and llor ferine, her murderous l'renon man), Is too well known to require further words than that It waa the Bame marvel of tragic inspiration as ever. Of the support Miss Lavlnla Shannon gave an affecting pic ture of tho peculiarly Dlcken-y figure of I'oor Joe, the wretched waif, who waa kept "moving on" till be finally moved out, and Mr. Shine was painstaking an fairly amusing aa the young man by the name of fiiippu.
