about as follows:. She had been cacieafe for about
even months, and determining not to risk the
result oi an exposure consequent upon giving
tilrlli to a child, she called at tbe office or Dr.
Leon, on Fourteenth street, between It and I,
listing been Informed that he could render the
assistance and relief required. Sho stated the
eaee to him, and was assured that he could per
forin the operation, and the terms were J50, which
she agreed to give He then gave her some medi
cine, and she returned to her home. She called
again at his olhcc and received more attention,
ami two days subsequently, feeling very sick, she
lie toM Tier that sho was about to be confined,
nnd suggested that she had better accompany
him to a house near by, where sho could get the
Hcccsfrary care and attention. This she consented
to, and was taken by him lo a wretched hovel in
an alley nearby, and turned orerto the tender
mercies era colored woman named Mrs. Ro-ic
This hut was a most wretched abode, devoid efall
the necessaries of II c, and rendered more disgust
ing to the sick woman by the repulsive appear
ance or llio presiding genius. The girl was laid
n a wretched cut. filthy and greasy, and while
Iter frame was racked with fever her senses were
annojed by the fumes or whl'lcy and tobacco
used b her attendant. She asked It a cup of
ua, uutvta unaoic to get it or any omcr rciisn
flic required. In thll condition, suffering both
mental and bodily twin, she remained all night,
and in the morning was delivered of a still born

which was served upon him and he taken Into
custody. Accompanied by an official of the Dis
trict attorney's office, the officers and prisoner re
turned to tho hospital, where tho woman at once
recognised Leon as tho man who had performed
the operation on her. Sho was then again in
formed of her dying condition and requested to
make the formal antc-noitem statement, which
she did substantially as related above. Leon was
then taken to headquarters and locked up. lie

seemed very low-spirited and depressed. The

The result of this was the arrest last evening at

officers she finally acknowledged that she had

to-day and arraigned for the crime.

PROF. NEWCOM1TS ElOHTH LECTURE.
Prof. Ncweomb delivered tho eighth lecture of
his Interesting course on astronomy before the
Columbian University on Friday evening.
The lecturer announced his subject to be the
measurement oldlstanees in the heavens, and es
pecially or tbo distance of the sun. The usual
method of making such measurements Is by de-.
terraining the parallax of the body to be meas
ured. It was therefore necessary to begin by ex
plaining what parallax Is. The definition or this
word is the difference between the directions or a
body as seen from two different points. Illustra
tions were given to show how this depended on
the proportions between the distance of the body
and tbe distance apart or tho two points from
which It Is seen. The nearer the body the greater
the iiarallax, it the distance bc.tweep tho points
'from which It Is viewed remains, the same. This
distance is called tbo- bise line. Two base lines
are used in astronomy, one being the distance be
tween two points on the surface or the earth, tho
other the diameter or the earth's orbit. By the'
latter all distances outside or the moon have, in
tho hrst place, to be measured. If, for example,
wo observe a planet when tho earth is on
one side or the sun, and again, six months
later, when the earth Is on tho other side, we
see it in a different direction, owing to the change
In the position of the earth. If the planet did not
move during tbe interval, the two directions
wonld arive the exact lironortlons between the
diameter or the earth's orbit and the distance or
tbe Dlanet. But since tbo planet always moves
during tbe Interval wo must determine and allow
lor tuts motion, ana 10 ao mis cccuraieiy neeas a
long series or observations, made when the earth
and planet are in various points or their orbits.
By such observations both the orbits and the pro
portions between tbe distances or the planets ami
that or the son are learned, and It Is thus found
f hat the distances are determtned from the times
of revolution by Kepler's third law, as explained
in a previous lecture. These results, though ex
tremely accurate, do not give distances in nines,
but only proportions, or distances in which the
mean distance ol the sun Is used as the measuring
rod. This distance Is the unit of mearure com
monly employed by astronomers in stating dis
tances In the celestial spaces. It Is, for Instance,
found that Mercury is about at tbe distance one
third, enusnearlj three fourths, Mars one and
a half, and so on.
Thee distances cannot be expressed In miles
until we know tho length or cur'bnse line. To
measure lhls we must lake the distance between
two points on the earth itself as the base line, and
when we do tbistho parallax o! the sun Is so small
lhat hardly more Ihan a century has elapsed since
It has been dol.e with any certainty. Indeed, the
parallax to bo measured was not directly that of
tbesunitscir, but that of Venus or Mars when
nearest the earth from which the parallax and
distance otlhe sun could.be found by the known
1 roportun between them.
TBAKS1T Or TEXTS.
The lecturer then explained how transiffof
Vmui, when they occurred, could be employed for
this purpose. The observers at distant stations on
the surlaco of the earth would see Venus follow
different uatlis over tbe disc of tbo sun by measur
ing what the difference between the parallaxsof
ine iwo ooaies wouia ue ucicnuiacu. various
ways of making these measures 'would be em
ployed in the transit of next December, among
which that ol taking photographs or the sun with
Venu on his disc, was mostly relied on by tho
In conclusion, the lecturer Illustrated the Im
mensity uf tbesun's distance by saying that If his
bearers had a friend in the sun whom they wished
to sic, atid could travel thither by a train which
went at tne rate of lia miles an bour.it would
still be vain to start on the journey. Though the
tram should run at that speed year after year
wlthout4naklni n single stop. They woaht all die

JANAUSCHEK AS LADY MACBETH.
This distinguished Ircgedienne will this evening
appear in her wonderful impersonation of Lady
Macbeth, a character that she Is said to delineate
with marvelous power. Those who are familiar
with Madame-Janauschek'sstylemay form ajust
estimate of her ability to give to the rot of Lady
Macbeth a grandeur and vil Idness that must en
chain the attention and elicit the admiration or
her auditors; We look for a crowded and i tatbu
slastie assemblage at Ford's to-night, -r
To-morrow crcnlnir Janausebek will reneatther
powerful personation of Adrienno In the play of
that name, and on Thursday she Is to produce an
entirely new piece, written expressly to bring Into
bold prominence her Dceuliar talents. The lady
was very successful last week, and now that i the
opera troupe has departed, wo look for a grand
rally ofcer numerous admirers at Ford's nightly.
On Monday and Tuesday evenings of next week
the public will be favored with a grand musical
treat. On these occasions Theodore Thomas and
his celebrated orchestra of sixty peVformers will
again appcar.ln Washington and repeat the tri
umphs they hare so often won. Accompanying
the troupe Is Mr. M. W. Whitney, one or the bnest
vocalists in the land. Mr. Thomas promises to
provide a choice selection or gems at each of his.

The celebrated Hutchinson family will glre a
grand concert at tbe Metropolitan church on this

among tbo sweetest singers before the public,
and their populnrlty Is as well deserved as It is
widespread. They possess a peculiar style that
lias never yot been successfully Imitated, and
those who Intrust themselves to the Hutchlnsons
for an evening- of reel tamusement never regret
their; choice., Thosojdeilrous of attending;! tho

TBE BOLY COMMUNION.
PREACHING BY REV. FATHER HOBBIE
AND DR. LEWIS.
At tbe Chapel of the Holy Communion (High
Church Episcopal or Anglo-Cathollc) Tallis'
Litany was sung at eleven o'clock, and there was
a hlgb celebration of the Holy Eucharist, in which
Bey. Father Hobble preached from the Gospel,
"Whosoever therefore shall humble Tilmself as
this little child, the same is greatest in the king,
dom of ftesveu." Natthewrxv!ll:4.TChriit estab
lished a spiritual kingdom upon earth: that king
dom, like every ether, has Its laws, and Its laws
are for splritnal ends.. What may attain an end
la the world does not necessarily attain a similar
end in the spiritual kingdom.
Our Lord said humble -yourself. No man who
bumbles himsel f In Uie world It going to progress
lb earthly things; but Christ has his own laws m
his kingdom, and without obedience to them we
cannot expect progress In a Christian life. Thus
there are SDlritual means which Chrlit has or.
datnedtofeed and strengthen us Jn this world,
but judging train a' mere worldly point of view
they may not be meant at all. Christians observe
th blessed sacraments or the Church because
they are means unto a spiritual end. So It Is In
regard to giving to the Church. We read In
Proverbs: ,TlIe that hath pity upon the poor lend,
eth unto the Lord.". He that glvct to Christ's
Church lendt unto the Lord, and It shall be re
paid him In a splritnal manner. ' In the kingdom
of the world men require security for what they
lend, but In ChrisVs'klngdoea lending onto the
Lord Is In analogy with tbe law ot humanity, and
is the keeping oFa spiritual law.
Arrogance, or a-vlolatlonof the lawof humility,
bat been a crying evil in our Church. We have
been implacable, and bare shown no spirit of con
cession toward the other great Catholfe Churches

tae 14th chapter of St.- Matthew anJthe 19th

down on tne grass, ana took the five loaves and
the two fishes, and looking-up to 'heaven He
blessed aad brake, and gave the loaves to Hit
disciples, and the disciples to the multitude." "
He eommeneed by remarking that the Incidents
lathe history or our Lord are roll of Instruction
and deep algnlflcance. Every act or bis was for
the pnatotioa and amelioration of humanity.

sixteen years, are the only daughters of widowed

mother of the former, In ber distant home in Ken

containing the Dominican habit-with ahkh -

TOBACCO ANB TOBACCO SMOKING JN
Dr. Prime's "The Alhambra and the Kremlin."
Perhaps by advertising a reward for tho discov
ery, It might be possible to find a man In Spain
who does not smoke. Yet, strange to say, the
culeure or tobacco In Spain la forbidden by law.
Tbe soil and climate are favorable, and Its culti
vation has been a great success. But by (hst
kind of legislation or decree peculiar to Spalr,
and constantly reminding one or tbe Chinese, the
mother ccifatry, Spain, Is prohibited from raising
tobacco In order that the daughter, Cuba, may
have tho monopoly. The right, of Importation is
sold to contractors, who make a great business or
It. In the middle of the fifteenth century the
Spaniards began to get tobacco rrom America,
aud they have been getting more and more of It
ever since In 1800 they smoked seven millions or
cigars, and cigars are not tbe thing they usually
smoke. They have their tobacco rolled up In lit
tle hits or paper, and these they carry In their
Eockcts, with matcher. Often they carry tho to
acco and the paper separately, and make a ciga
rette when they want It, making one while smok
ing another. Those Interesting manuraetnres are
not peculiar to Spain; they are common In our
own country, but not so general. The weed Is
used only for smoking and- snuffing In Spain. I
can not learn that It is chewed at alj. ,
Children smoke at an earlier age In Spain than
mumw wiuibiii;. ji wnta uncuiumim lOTincm
to begin at six, or eren five years or age. And
they never leave It off till they die. Ladles
smoke. Not often do we see them with a cigarette
