The Spintuahstb of "Washington cele
brated the fortx-ninth anniveisar or tlie
Introduction of tlicir faith in this country
by a grand mas meeting, yesterday after
noon, at Masonie Temple A large and
interested thiong gathered to litten to the
Chairman Wood presided. Upon the plat

"Woodbury, Prof Maxim, Mr F A Wiggin,
of Massjicliusettb; Mr George A. Bacon,
Dr .Mary "Walker, James MeCiearj, and
others, all of whom took imiwrtaiit part.s
In the program Dr Walker was garbed
In her regulation black Prince Albeit and
tall, shining bootf. She ivure white kid
gloves, and when she appeared at the
front of the platform to recite an original
poem, to "which Prof. Maxim played au
organ accompaniment, she waved an
American flag and elicited applause from
The principal address was delivered by
Mr Woodbury, on the theme, 'The Re
ligion of Spiritualism " He warned his
hearers not to make an investigation of
spiritualiMU If they wished to avoid the
truth Learned men have predicted the
future of the belief and their predictions
are now beginning to be realized.
Thcodoie Parker, in Boston, in 1837,
nnnounred that spiritualism will become
the icllgion of America. It has more
evidence for the mind than any other form
of lehgion. It is thoroughly democratic,
am. pioies that deatli does not separate
friends from the living.
He quoted Ilcniy Waid Beecher as sav
ing that the fall eis of the country hover
av a cloud of witnestes above this, nation,
and he believed that there are angels of
light and spirits of the dead. He said
that the spnitsare out natuinl guardians
and friends and are antagonistic to cil.

the last roitj-mne 5 ears to smother the

The aveiage spintuahst believes in a
rliaple, yet scientific, leligion. Spir

followers believe in piogiessive salva

science niu:t be the only teacher.
Mrs. Maria L. Wheeler Brown executed
a clever piano solo, after rcmaiking that
she never played the same piece a second
time, and saying that the power to play
comes unsolicited. Mrs A. M. Jenkins
spoke briefly Addresses and songs were
the contributions of the other participants
in the program.
PLANKED SHAD DINNKH.
First One of the Season
The first planked shad dinner of the
season at Marshall Hall yesterday was a
success in every way The morning boat
was well filled and a much lamer crowd
went down in the afternoon. Among the
passengers were many prominent business
men and members of Congress with their
On the arrival of the steamer at the
hall the dining-room was thrown open to
all and they enjoyed themselves with
planked shad and clam chowder. After
dinner some strolled over the green lawns,
others tried a hand at bowling and shoot
ing, while many watched the piocess of
planked shad. Then the steamer's whistle
blew three long blasts and everybody
boarded her for the return trip home, ar
riving in the city just berore dark. All
were well pleased with the trip, and spoke
In the highest praise of the first shad
dinner of the season.
These dinners will be given every Sun-

There Is some fault to find In every
thing this side of heaven, and the one
drawback to the stuffed ham that critic.-,

shlves, sprouts and onions that linger long
after the ham itself has ceased to be. Some

boil and bake a ham and drench it with a
sauce of wine and drawn butter. It is

Another state disli for Easter ib a capon,
which stands at the head of all the poultry
kind, and always commands a high piice.
Capons are con&idered great delicacies,
preserving, as they do. tlie tenderness of
the chicken with tlie fine juicy flavor
of maturity The bod j of a capon is larger,
fatter and tounder than the common fowl
in propoition, and generally has a vein of
fat on each side of the breast, runninginto
the haul fat of the stomnch and rump,
which is tlie most unpiofitablu portions
of the common fowl
You will find "broilers'' in the market
now, varying in size from a partridge to
three pounds the pali. In choosing, never
select the coarse, long-legged, thin-breasted
chicken because it is heaviest, but take
the plump, quail-shaped breast for juici
ness, fine-grained and well-flavoied eating
which you will find also more economical,
as it has more breast meat and less bone.
If. requires some knowledge and discrim
ination to select a "spring'' chicken
these days, unless you can rely on your
dealer, for while there is nothing nicer
than a tender young cockeiel, there is
nothing tougher and more demoralizing in
the whole calendar of eatables than an
old rooster or hen.
"A. M.'' writes to say that she has- been
"fooled three times, hand-running, buy
ing lettuce,'' and will I tell her why. I
cannot; because T don't ace how it could
possibly have happened if she went to
market wheie the stands are always
stacked with crisp, green heads.
However, hucksters arc human, like all
the rest of us, and "A. M.'' must admit
that her inexperience possesses mighty
magnetic power, since it lias attracted some
dealer to his moral downfall three distinct
and separate times. Buy double-headed
lettuce, "A. M.,'' and you will get the
worth of your nickel every time. The stalks
are too short to be doctored. Once cut,
there is no room for further trimming to
keep up a defrauded appearance of fresh
