A New Name for a Type Common In the
World.
Brooklyn Eagle.}
A new word has been coined. It
is d-u-d-e or d-o-o-d. The spelling
does nort seem to be distinctly settled
yet, but custom will soon regulate it.
Just where the word came from no
body knows, bnt it has sprung into
popularity within the hist two weeks,
so that now everybody is using it. It
means a masher, and yet it means
something more than a masher. For
instance, a masher may be young or
old, he may mash bv virtue of his po
liteness, of bis accomplishments, of
bis wealth, beauty, eyes, nose or fame;
ho may be a man or mature years, an
old man, a young man, or a boy. In
speaking of mashers one is never sure
exactly what sort of a man is meant.
There is a class of mashers in New
York who will now have a definite
place m the language of the town as
dudes. A dude cannot be old; he
must be young, and to be properly
termed a dude be should be one of a
certain class who affect the metropol
itan theaters. The dude is from 1 it
to 28 years of age, wears trousers of
extreme tightness, is hollow-chested,
effcininutc in his ways, apes the Eng
lish, and distinguishes himself among
his fellow-men as a lover of actresses.
The badge of his office is the paper
cigarette, and his bell crown English
opera hat is his chicfest joy. They
ore seen in large numbers at the tliea
ters, where they form one of the most
interesting features of the evening
entertainments. They are offensive j
because they blow cigarette-smoke in j
ladies' faces, and monopolize the bur j
between the acts. As a rule they are j
rich men's son s, and very proud of
i i * .i i
the unlimited cash at they command. :
They call all actresses by their first j
names, aild affect extreme familiarity I
with all things pertaining to the stage; I
but in reality they know very little !
personally of the men and women < f j
the dramatic profession. Still the -
dude always poses as a particular fa
vorite of the reigning theatrical ee- |
lebrity. They are a harmless lot of
men in one wav, for they are too shal
low pated ami weak to accomplish |
any harm, but they are sometimes of-1
fensive. No dude is a real dude who 1
does not talk to a fellow dllde in u |
loud voice during the play; also, DO
dude who respects himself ever takes
a lady to the theater. They run in j
pairs and compare notes between the j
acts. The most eminent dude in New ;
York is the son of a Wall street j
broker »f considerable wealth. This j
dude is the pet apostle of the order.
He has been in more scrapes with
actresses than any other man in town,!
and his name has been muddled up j
with lialf a dozen dirty scandals. He |
cently he married a girl who was sing- j
ing here in an English opera troupe I
while bis intellect was somewhat mud-1
tiled through cigarette smoke or souu - !
thing of that sort, and her father hud
to pay her some thousands of d liars
to get her to agree to a separation
from the prospective young million
aire. It was accomplished after some :
difficulty, and she left the English op
era troupe, went to England, and the
last time I heard of her she had mar
ried a wealthy barrister in Manehes
ter. The steamer had scarcely left j
the dock when the dude became in-!
volved in another row, which resulted
in his father sending him off to t'ali- 1
l'ornia under the care of a friendly
lawyer for a six weeks'tiip. The old
man would give anything to have his
son show a little more discretion in the
matter of public scandal, hut he can- j
not give him advice with much grace,!
because the father himself was in his
younger days, a 'Wonder of the most
malignant type. So, whenever he i
charges his son, the son looks at him
and smiles softly ami asks him about
the days of yore. The word dude is j
a valuable addition to the slang of
the dav.
A correspondent
newspaper visited i
Portland
of a
large jam pro
ducing factory, in which he found the
work going bravely on, without the
aid of fruit at all. Jams of current,
plum, apricot, strawberry, raspberry
and gooseberry were produced 'before
Ins eyes, yet neither fruit was in the
building. Turnips alone were used.
The flavoring matter was extracted
from coal tar, and the resemblance to
raspberry and strawberry was per
fected by mixing the compound with
small seeds of some cheap, innoxious
herb. A common form of sugar is
used, and this is the only honest in- j
gradient of the mess. 1 he preserves!
are offered as made from this season's!
fruit.—Virginia (Nev.) Chronicle.
It is no longer proper in Boston to
say "those who dance must pay the
piper." The Post heard a swei t girl
say: "Those who indulge in terpsi
chorean recreation are under obliga
tions to remunerate the violinist."
A heavy land-slide occurred last
night on the hills across the river. It
is a pi'y a slide of some kind could not
occur on Main street, Bullion, and
carry off a few hundred tons of gar
bage, ice and tin cans which almost
block the street.
