A Washington Belle Engaged to a
Young Choctaw Chief.
Washington, March 10.—A press
dispatch from Pierre, Duk., nar
rating the engagement of a Wash
ington girl to Chiska, a worthless full
blooded iSioux Indian of that town, draws
attention to a romantic story slowly un
raveling here in Washington. Miss Beile
Cora Fellows, tlie heroine of the Dakota
story, is not known here, but she has her
prototype in one of the belles of the carital.
Connectieut avenue fs the favorite prome
nade ot the crowds of worshippers who at
tend the vesper services of the chapels in
the West End on Sunday afternoon, and it
is quite the correct thing upon coining from
church to join the stream of pedestrians
slowly strolling out to the Chinese Embassy
and back. Among the young people who
thionged the avenue last Sunday no one
failed to notice a handsome, graceful bru

well-made youth whose swarthy complex

glistening broadcloth. Ins calves were in
cased in embroidered leggings elnborateiy
fringed, and upon Ills head he wore a wide
sombrero. His face, however, was ex
tremely intelligent, and the handsome
couple elicited many admiring comments.
The young lady is the daughter of a
prominent Washington family and the In
dian youth is a full-blooded Choctaw. Two
years ugo the young lady and her father,
who i a very eccentric gentleman and lias
journeyed hall the world over with no other
companion than his daughter, traveled
through the Indian Teriitorv. While on
the settlements of the Choctaw Nation tiie
old gentleman was stricken with a fever
and laid for weeks between life and death.
He and his daughter had taken up th*dr
abode with an aged squaw, the widow of a
once powerful chief, a contemporary of old
Col. Pitchlvnn, chief of the Choctaws, who
for many seasons was a familiar figure
about Washington, where he spent the last
years of his life in a vain effort to secure
the payment of a claim of fd.OOU.OUO tor
storei and supplies furnished bv his tribe to
the Union army during the late war.
This old squaw had an only son, who in
herited a considerable estate (from his father
and pos- -vsed great influence in the Choc
taw nation. He had enjoyed unusual edu
cational advantages and is said to have
S|ient a year or so in the Indian school at
Hampton. The romantic fancy of the girl
at once fastened upon th.- young ltd. n
chieftain, and with no eye but that of the
old squaw u-on them their opportunities

Filially after weeks nf pati-nt nursing and
anxious watching, the old man became con

him ld> daughter, who parted tioni her In

Her father, who had discovered his
daughter’s penchant for tiie young Indian,
forl-ade any correspondence bdw -en .

Festive Titans Who Claim the Earth
as Their Mother.
New York. March Ij. —T:ey call the
earth their moihe’-. those jolly gentlemen
gianss of America who compose the Union
of Ti;ans and who enjoyed their annual
dinner at Delmonioo’s on the evening of
March 1. They take great pleasure in these
festivities every year and they sing:
Oh. I’m a genuine Titan ’
Amt you’re a genuine Titan’
And we are genuine Titans:
And mother knows we re out.
And ni tiler knows we re out.
And mother knows I'm out
This is a curious ociety—the only one of
the kind in America, or probably ii the
world, it was organized ten years ago.
The promoter and father of it was lnger
soil Lockwood, of the Lockwood Printing
Company, in Duane street. Ho is turns if a
striking Titan with a physique that is ro
bust, and sts feet four inches tn height. He
has long, iron-grey hair that is fluffy or
tiangy in front, and he wears a grey mous
tache ami lutjierial.
The idea of the s ciety is based on my
thology, and its objects are social and in
te.lctual. As one of the members ex
press si it. it was "got up just for fun."'
But in order to get into it a man must not
bo less than six feet two inches tall, be a
gentleman and lie able to "catch n:T to the
mythological features of the society so tliat
he can respond 10 toasts and work in inytn
o'ogical jokes.
Tin- Titans have three yearly festivals.
One is hel lon March 1. (Tue spring cele
bration for I vCS was held tile ot er evening
at Hotel Bi un-wick.) On tins i ccasiou
they ’’make up" m tuer earth. They make
-lion fun, sing, crack j- kes, etc., that the
'll lady has to "get up" whether she wants
to or not a id enjoy the fpsijvaL
March Ist is always celebrated as the
’’making up day” of the Titantic mother or
the ojiening of spring. iTie Titans are
governed by the almanac rattier than the
weather. So that spring be ng scheduled
on the time-table to anive March 1 the
"gentlemen giants" go to some hotel end
have a royal banquent to welcome Winter's
"The Olympian banquet is an ambrosial
niglit,” is what the recent festival was
A song which enlivened the recent dinner
was entitled, "The Titan Dude to bis In
amorata.'’ It run as follows:
PuelJa. come sit by your sweetheart, ta-ta,
I’uella, your life shall lie dolce tab :
I’ueiia. let not poverty lie a ban.
Love like mine will iuciease, yah by vah.
Puella. oh gracious me, I hear your i'fl'
puella, I must catch the n-xt horse cab,
i'ueilu. dot's him. mein iiott, ja 1
Puella. he'll fire me out, I'm sure, tr.x la, lal
And here's the good night song:
Good night, brothers, good night, brothers.
Good until, brothers, let s seek oorlitt.e neds;
Merrily we'll whoop her up, whoop her up,
wu. op her up.
Merrily we ll whoop her up, when the next year
comes. g
After tiie spring calling to Mother Earth
that it is “time to get up’’ there is no other
"racket” until midsummer, when the Titans
go down to Coney Island and formally
greet Father Neptune.
Other songs were enjoyed, extracts from
which are given b-low:
We re a band of brothers, and six feet two we
For heaven and earth, and for ourselvds, and
for our native land.
We rally "round our banner, and with hand
clasped in hand.
Swear all -Ranee faithful to our orJer.
Then ring, ring out the chorus, until It strikes
the siar-.
The Titans song will always reach Saturn, Jove
and Mars;
Coelus and sweet Terra and Neptune with bis
Help swell the anthem of our Order!
During the “high jinks” “The Sjjort of
the fitans,or Slugger Hercules knocked
Out” is one of the catchy sunp that runs in
the air of “Captain Jinks.” The words are:
On Hercules, the slugger bold.
Who used to slug in days of old.
His own wit.i me could never hold.
For I'm the Sport of the Titans.
Athlectle games I've always won,
Always won. always one;

Gh Hercules, the heavy weight.
Who slugged 'em early, slugged ’em late,
In facing me would meet hi.- fate,
For I'm the spirt of the Titans.
A cricketer I'm heart and soul.
Heart and soul, heart and soul,
1 row. 1 r.de. 1 fence, I howl,
For I’m the sport of the Titans.
At the winter arid spring “Olympian
banquets" a peculiar formality is observed,
l b re is a larg • canopy representing tUe

Capt Breeze Gives His Admiral the Re
tort Courteous.
From the V -ir Yo.L' Slur.
I nele Sa navy has been productive of
another int resting sensation which came
to light ye-terday which will eulminat: in
an official inv-stigation, to take place im
mediately upon the arrival at this port of
ono of the interested parties, who is no less
a personage than Admiral Bi aine. on board
I of the L nited St ,tes steamship Neipsie.
The charg.a are brought by Capt. Breeze,
of the guulsia; ]j&ncastar, who accuses Ad
| mirai jiraino of conduct unbecoming un
i officer, and with “ruling all aboard with an
iron hand and an u gov, rouble temper.”
Wnen Admiral Brains assumed command
of tbeSont . Atlantic squadron about a year
ago he made the Lancaster hi - flag-ship, as
his predecessors lir.d done. The charge is
that he at once began to assert his power in
an uncalled for and unwarrantable manner.
Capt. Breese, an efficient officer, who had
i been attached to the Lancaster since she
left the navy yard, and who had always Iwen
on the mos: intimate terns with the suc
cessive Admirals in command, found no fa
vor in the eyes of Aliuir 1 Bi aine, who held
aioof from hi- society. This coolness on the
part of the Ad niral in time assumed such
Irigid pro|K>rtinn.3 that the Captain remon
strated, and the Admiral is recorded as hav
ing shocked the crew and the offi'crs by re
questing him to t ik<- up his future abode in
the place where frost is unknown.
In the natunl course of events a strong
hostile ic-iing sprung up I a-tween Captain
and Admiral, which at times was mani
fes ed openly to the crew. It became in-
I deed a matter of daily occurrence for the
two gentlemen to show their bad feeling
more or less openly.
One evening when the Lancaster was ly
ing off Rio and all hands except the
“watch” bad been piped below, an orderly
was hastily summoned to the august pres
ence of the Admiral, who handed him a
! note with a stern command that “this
should lie at once band and to Breese.”
The orderly was surprised, but he skur
ried off in the direction of tee Captain’s
quarters, where he found that officer
deep in thought and slowly pulling blue
| wreaths of smoke into the higher atmos
phere of the fixl2 stater om.
The Captain, recognizing the handwrit
ing of his adversary, refused to accept the
note, but on second thought, took it from
the orderly's hand, and tearing the seal
open read the following:
“Admiral Braine sends his compliments
to Capt. Breese, and wishes to call his at -
tention to the fact that he is a fool.”
To say that the Captain was angered does
not halt describe the scene. Leaping up
from his chair and dashing liis pipe to the
I floor, he raged about his cabin, the terrified
orderly mean while standing aghast in the
doorway, unable to account for his supe
rior's strange behavior. Becoming calm lie
sat down ami wrote: “Capt. Breese sends
his compliments to Admiral Ih-uine, and
savs that the Admiral is no gentleman and
never could be one if he tried.”
The resul aboard s .ip of this interesting
conduct on the part of these gentlemen was
that Capt. Bree-e was totally ignored by
the Admiral. The Captain found life so
uncomfortable, in consequence, on the i ar
ea-tor that tie was compelled to “play off
sick,” and the accommodating"shin surgeon
assisted him in his ruse by making out a
certificate, ordering him home, “invalided,”
The Captain reached these waters a lew
days ago in perfect health.
The eondu t of Admiral Braine reached
the ears of the Navy Department, and he
was ordered to transfer his flag from tiie
Lancaster and to allow her to proceed to
the European squadron again. He is now
aboard the third-rate ship Neipsie, which is
expected in these waters shortly, when an
investigation will probably be held.
An Advertisement That was Discon
A prominent firm of soap manufacturers,
says a Washington special, has attempted
unsuccessfully to use Senator Ingalls and
his name as an advertisement for their
wares. Last fall a Washington journalist
called on Senator Ingalls to interview him
on a matter of national interest. Instead of
going into an elaborate discussion of the
subject inquired about, the Senator switched
off into a conversation about the desira
bility of every American citizen shaving
himself. No one could lie a gentlemen, lie
said, unless he shaved every morning. The
proprietors of a soap establishment quickly
seized on this interview and repro
duced it as an advertisement of
their shaving soap. They had it
printed on a circular, one of which was
wrapped about each cake of soap sol i.
Then they enclosed a check for $!,o0 io Mr.
Incalls, with their thanks for the favor he
bad done them. The advertisement was
also inserted in the Century Magazine,
where it remained one month. In the
March number the advertisement is con
spicuously absent. The soap manufacturers
have also ceased sending out the circulars.
This course was taken ow ug to the action
of Senator Inculls. who wrote the soap firm
an indignant letter, re.uruing their check,
and threatening to prosecute t. eni if the
advertisements using bis name wore not sup
pressed. This was sufficient, and the ad
vei tis-meuts have accordingly been de
Running Away From It.

The Head of the -alvatlon Army in
Baltimore—Two Years Married.
From the Baltimore Herald.
Gen. Booth, the commander-in-chief of
the English end of the Salvation Army, is
in Baltimore, and the other night, assisted
by his staff, had a lively skirmish with the
powers of darkness at the Third U. B.
church, corner of Fulton and Loniliard
streets. The edifice was filled to overflow
ing. The “general” is accompanied bv his
wife, a young aid very sweet looking Eng
lish woman, the daughter of a ciergyinau of
the Episcopal church, who disowned her
localise of her infatuation for the head of
the .Salvationists.
After prayers and singing and addresses
bv 10.-al lights, Gen. Booth arose to speak,
lie is a tali, s|re man wsth black hair
and long, iron-gray heard, pallid counte
nance, and wore an ill-fitting black frock
coat. He speak* in an enthus astie, impres
sive manner. He said that in the beginning
he wanted to free the meeting from any
sectarianism or from any crushing ecele
siasticisnis, and then all denominations who
felt that they were sn .eil to raise their
right hands and -ing "Happy Day,” ana
with a look in the direction of the reporters,
‘‘that includes those reporters, too, if they
feel that they have been saved.” The re
porters kept very quiet.
He went on to speak of the criticism pro
voked by the eccentric customs and cos
tumes adopted by the urniv, and said that
t hey were only the means to an end: that
they were used by reason of their conspicu
ous less to attract attention to themselves,
which n: ce held was diverted to other sute
jects. He gave a brief resume of the work,
and said that there are over 700 salaried of
ficers in the United States, covering atmut
•T>.) cities and towns. Yost quantities of
literature ate being distributed.and the field
wo k is being carried on in twenty-three
different languages.
M rs. Booth followed bitn in an address of
some length, and she kept her audience in
terested throughout bv tiie many incidents,
pathetic and tragic, which have come under
her notice in the various lands in which the
work bus lod her.
* apt. O’Brieii, who played the part cf a
talking seal in a eircu by having rubber
fish tail to cover his lower extremities, spoke
a few words. Before and after the meeting
the army had a ba' quet at their hall at 4

A Good Remedy for Burns.
From the New York Medical Journal.
Many remedies at one time or another
have been proposed for be surgical condi
tion following the application ot excessive
heat to tho body, and, while some of these
aro of value, still all are more or les> unsat
isfactory. The alleviation of the pain and
suffering attendant U|kui burns is one of the
most importunt |w)in:s in the case toward
which the surgeon directs his efforts. The
shock from this cause alone is sufficient
oftentimes to produce death, and always is
great. Accidental.y I recently discovered
a remedy which is easily applied and ex
ceedingly prompt in its action. I was called
in some haste to a little child about th:ee
weeks ago who was badly burned about the
hands and face from the falling on a hot
stove. The burns were deep, the pain exces
sive and the shock very considerable. I
sent to the drug store for a mixture
of lime water, olive oil and carbolic
acid. While waiting for this, 1 prepared to
give tllfe child a hypodermic injection of
morphifife, with which to allay the agony,
which was so grpat that convulsions seemed
imminent. While I was getting ready to
do this, I espied upon the shelf a bottle of
pinus canadensis (colorless). Remembering
its wonderful soothing influence in acute
inflammations, I at once concluded to try
it. Taking a corner of a soft handkerchief,
I rapidly painted the injured parts, when,
like magic, the pain ceased. You can well
imagine iny surprise and delight at the re
sult. I directed a camel’s hair brush to be
purchased, and had tho mother make free
applications, end the case had no more
treatment, save a little iodoform ointment
later on. Since this I have tried it in sev
eral cases, both siight end severe, and with
the same delightful results.
A New Washington Fashion.
The practice of wearing button-hole
badges, says a Washington special to the
Sun, is bee lining so general among publ.c
men in Washington, that the tailors are
thinking of inventing anew style garment
that will have button holes all the way down
from the collar of the coat to the bottom of
the skirt. The soldier organizations have
alone half a dozen different buttons, indica
ting membership in the Grand Army of the
Republic, the Loyal Legion, the United Ser
vice Club, the Union Veteran Corps, and
other societies. Tiie latest button is that
adopted by the Republican I-eague, organ
ized in New York la-t fall. This button is
quite a striking and unique one. being made
of white jioreeiain, with the letters "R. L.
U. K.” in gilt. Senator Palmer is the first
Senator who has yet appeared in the Senate
chamber nearing one of these buttons. It
was placed in Ins button-hole at Detroit re
cently when he attended the meeting of the
Republican club. His white and gilt but
ton was very conspicuous upon his dark
blue frock emit, and attracted universal at
tention. Being the first of the kind seen in
Washington, Mr. Palmer’- colleagues and
other friends kept him busy answering
questions ns to its significance. He finally
became so weary of explaining the mean
ing of the mysterious badge that he took it
off, aud now wears it on special occasions
only. _

The “Police Nig-ger’’ Reading-the Stars
and Predicting Dire Happenings.
Superstition exists to a greater or less ex
tent among all classes. It would be difficult
, to fix upon any one of the police officials
alx>ut the barracks who would acknowledge
that any one of the force, from the grim
viseged head of the department, with his
military (waring, down to the porter who
manipulates the cuspidores, believes in
sign- or omens, and yet the “police nigger '
is darkly hinted at by some of the silent
Keepers of the sally port, a- having a hidden
knowledge of direful events to come.
The “police nigger” is a black cat, so
black that a starless midnight is white by
comparison. In his infantile days his ma
ternal derivative wandered away or fell a
prey to the “had boy,” so that the "ponce
nigger,” figuratively speaking, bad to bo
brought up on the bottle, until such time
as he could mader the mutton rats that un
wisely ventured where the wiser -old
rhodents never dared to trespass. The “po
lice nigger” had only to keep an hour’s pa
tient watch about the stables to be well
provendered, after which he would sit for
hours in the sun and shade, no doubt study
ing abstruse questions of futurity'. Thereby
hangs the tale.
No living thing is permitted to pass out
the sallyport without an order from the of
ficer on duty at the barracks except the
“police nigger.” “Night after night,” said
one of the lonely watchers to a Morning
News reporter recently, "the ‘police nigger’
will come out of the s illy port and cross
over under t tie trees of South Broad street
and look up at the stars. Sometimes he will
go hack into the barracks yard without no
ticing the watchman; but if he is nervous,
and purrs ami walks uneasily up and down
the saliv port, rubbing against the legs of
the watchman and against the walls of the
building, something is about to happen. A
fire wiil break out, a policeman wall lie hurt,
or get sick, or something will happen to re
mind us of the strange act of ‘nigger.’”
Wnile the Morning News man was
standiug in the sally- port, the animal came
walking leisurely out. His eyes were
green and shone like fire-flashes, as he
glanced up at the watchman, and he be
stowed a quick glance at the news-gat lerer.
The “police nigger" passed ou across the
sidewalk, over the deep sand, and onto the
grass plot under the shade of the live oaks.
There he squatted on his haunches and
looked tip at the stars long and meditatively.
Suddenly he whisked his tail to the nortu
ward and stalked back. Without noticing
the twain who had watched him casting the
horoscope of the night he p issed through
the sally port with a dignified tread, and
disappeared in the shadows of the shrub
bery in the barracks’ yard.
“Well,” asked the reporter, “what does
that mean P
"When the‘police nigger’acts that way
nothing ever happens.”
"It was a quiet night in the city,” said
the Sergeant on duty, when the reporter
dropped in next dayto take the usual notes
of offenders’ misdoings. Of course it hail
been a qu'et night The “police nigger”
had read the stars and the horoscope was
Local and General Gossip In Railway
The Alabama Railroad Commission has
recently made a small reduction on the
freight rates of coal. It applies only from
September to April, including the winter
The plans for the freight depot to be
erected by the Columbus and Western rail
road, in Birmingham, have been forwarded
to the Central's agent there. The building
will be a commodious structure, 300 feet
long by cA> f.-ot wide It wUi l.a built of
wood, covered over with corrugated iron.
Chief Engineer B. H. Hardaway, of the
East Alabama railroad, is locating the line
of that road for thirty-five miles, between
Roanoke and Anniston, Ala., and construc
tion work will be commenced when the lo
cation has been completed. The entire
length of the road, from Opelika to Annis
ton, will be about ninety miles.
The railroads in the Southern Passenger
Association have agreed to make excursion
rates from the West and Northwest for all
mineral points in the South at 1 per
mile. Excursions w ill be run as follows:
March 13 and 27. April 10 and 24. The
tickets for each excursion, will be good for
thirty days, and will be accepted on all the
Southern lines.
A Barnwell (S. C.) special says: “An in.
teresting meeting oi the citizens of Barn
well and vicinity was held here Friday
night in the interest of the East Barnwell
and Western railroad, and a resolution in
dorsing an extension of the Barnwell to Sa
vannah was unanimously indorsed and
ordered forwarded to the City Council of
Savannah. Enthusiastic speeches were
made and several thousand dollars worth of
stock subscribed.”
The Southern Traffic Association will
meet in Atlanta to-dav. It is understood
that the action of the Western and Atlantic
road in reducing rates will be discussed. It
is said that the association will force the
road to return to the 3c. rate if there is any
way to do so. but if not, the question of re
duction will be considered. Those who are
in a position to express an opinion say that
a majority of the railroad officials are
much opposed to a reduction, but that a
small minority think it would be a good
