A PLEA FOR MORE PLAY.
There is but one redeeming fea
ture about Puritanism, and that ia
the ThauksiviDg holiday, which has
just been ceiebrnted. There was one
day in the year in which these sour
old refugees forgot to burn the witch
or shoot down a fiddler, and that
Thanksgiving. The holiday, with
this exception, is a most un-Americun
inctitution. To grub and scrape
along from Uonday to Saturday,
and on the last day of the week
to take his books home and spend
the Sabbath in the beloved society
of his ledger is the practice of the
American merchant of the true type.
If on Thanksgiving he distends his
lean ribs with turkey, and crams his
dyspeptic stomach with mince pie,
he feels as if he is behaving as the
revolutionary son of a revolutionary
sire should behave. Now, the South
ron, who has a dance and a blow-oufc
about three times a week in honor
of some esteemed saint, is, to my
mind, a wiser man than the one
festival American. He certainly
lives longer, and he has more fun in
twenty-four hours than the ether
couid squeeze out of a yenr, and,
after all, if fun combined with long
evity be not the true object of exis
tence, I'd lik9 to know what is. "We
are the most beggarly nation in the
world about our holidays. We be
grudge every moment not devoted to
making our heir gray, for the sake
of some one who will come after us
and enjoy the results of our labors.
A few centuries hence, if the world
should keep on growing: in thought,
I feel positive thnt there will be but
two working days in the week, end
the others will be devoted to beer
and skittles. Town Crier in San
Francisco Newa Letter.
The magnificent state of the royal
baby of Spain, King Alfonso XIII,
who, at 2 years, has all to himself a
retinue of servants which is probably
greater than that of any other infant
in Western lands, wTas quite eirr
passed by that of tho Emperor of
China while li9 was still a cluid.
This great potentate, from his early
infancy, had in his personal service
more than five hundred people.
What could they all be employed to
do? Nobody but a member of the
Chinese Court could tell tho func
tions of all of the people, but the list
included the following: Eighty
nurses, 25 fan-bearers, 25 palanquin
bearers, 10 umbrella-bearers, 30
physicians and surgeons, 7 cooks, 23
assistant cooks, 50 servants and mes
sengers, 50 dressers (to put on and
take care of the Imperial clothes),
75 astrologers, 16 governors and GO
priests. With 30 cooks and 30 doc
tors, it is perhaps a wonder that
Kuattg Hsu, Emperor of China, has
lived to be 17 years old.
The beauty of the White HouBe
for the next four years, will be Mrs.
Kussell Harrison, wife of the President-elect's
only son. She is a
young and blooming blonde, with
magnificent hair and brilliant eyes.
Her figure is superc, and she carries
herself wiih a vast amount of grace
and dignity. Miss SaunderB was
her maiden name, llussell Har
rison, her husband, is a quiet, wll
dressed man, exceedingly proud of
his handsome wife. The young ca
pie are not quite as straight-laced in
their ideas as Benjamin Harrison
and his wife, and may be able to
add an atmosphere of modernity to
the social life of the White House.
