THE PENSION ROBBERY. II. St. George Tncker Given Some Start ling Fig-urea Abont the Fraud. (Itonnokc HoniM Report.) The opera-house wan filled last night at an early hour with an enthusiastic audi? ence who pave vent to their pent up exu? berance by vociferously applauding every person of prominence who entered the hall. He paid his respects to the Pension bill and said that every man in Old New Vir? ginia had tied to his back a Federal sol? dier whom he must help to support. He would never raise his voice against aiding the gallant soldiers of that war who lost arm. or leg, or life, but he was opposed to fattening the bummers and bounty jump? ers, deserters and cowards, who never fought a battle nor smelt gunpowder, yet were feeding on the life-blood of the people. Of 2,500,000 soldiers enlisted, ;>,(h>.'>,000 j were bountv men or substitutes, and were paid for enlisting $586,000,000 by the gov? ernment or by private individuals, and there were now 1,11(1,00(1 applications tilled for pensions, and the new bill would add 800,000 more, swelling (he total to I,940.000 pensioners. He lately applied for a pension (the second ever presented from his burner district) and urged dispatch, but was in? formed that there were 400,000 ahead of his, and others pouring in at the rate of 10.000 a dav. Garficld said $28,000,000 would be the high-water pension mark, and afterwards thev would decline, but we had already reached $170,000,000, of which (he South paid $65,000,000, Virginia $5,000,000, or $1.") to $"J0 for every man in Virginia as long as lie lived. The Czar of Russia paid only $119,000, 000 for the support of his vast army, and the armies of France and Britain together did not cost as much as this army of bum? mers and bounty men. Even a deserter was entitled to his pension, and the 12,000 deserters come up to the trough and eat their dough with the rest of the chickens. He scouted the idea of any man. of any party wanting free-trade, for an immense sum must be raised by duties to support t he govern ment, and every democrat would protect the workingmaii against the cheap pauper labor of Europe-, but the little bubble that the McKinley bill was de? signed to protect the workingmaii was punctured by the fact the tax levied by it was double the entire cost of production. He next discussed the McKinley bill, which came home to every fireside. All knew what taxation meant when the sheriff came around with his little ticket. Here a "Smart Aleck," who had been trying to be witty on several occasions, shouted "He sold my cow the other day." Ah! well, 1 congratulate the cow." CLOTH KS MAKE Til E BRIDEGROOM. They Don't Make the Man, but In This Case it's Different. (From tin- Chicago Triliuiie.) He was sitting on a bench at the Union Depot, with his hands thrust deep into his trousers pockets, his feet stretched out in front of him, his head bent forward on his chest, and his hat pulled down over his eyes. "What's the matter with you?" inquired a policeman, touching him on the shoul? der. He looked up a moment with dull, heavy, lack-lustre eyes, and then looked down again. "I'm sober," he said. "Von needn't waste any of your valuable time on me. I don't need looking after." "But you have been sitting here an hour without saying a word or moving a muscle. You're in trouble. "What is it?" "I don't think you can help me any." "Perhaps I can. That's what I'm here for." "Humph!" "Have you had your pocket picked?" '?Worse than that." "Been worked bv confidence men?" "Worse." "Been held up and robbed?" "Worse." "You seem to be all here. I don't see any arms, legs, or anything missing." "No!" snorted the young man. "You don't see anything missing! Everything's missing!" He jumped up, pushed his lint back, and burst out: "Do vou see this valise?" "Yes." "Well.it isn't mine. It's just like mine, but it belongs to a man that's half way be- i tween here and the end of the world by this time. He took my valise by mistake! bist night when he had to change cars, | and I didn't find it out fill noon to-day." "Well, thai isn't a killing matter." "It isn't, hey? That valise had my wedding suit in it, sir! I was to have ' been married an hour ago. The girl is waiting for me at a house on Division ! street, the preacher is there, (he folks arc wondering what's up, and the wedding victuals are getting cold." "Why don't you go and be married iu that suit you have on? It looks all right." "This suit? These are Hie clothes 1 j courted her in!" "What of it? Go and explain the case to her." "She'd think the explanation was a little too thin." "Brace up, young fellow," said the' policeman. "What's a suit of clothes I anyhow? Clothes don't make the man." The forlorn youth threw himself down on the bench again, thrust his hands deep into his trousers pockets, stuck his feet straight out in front of him, bent his head forward on his chest, pulled his hat down over his eyes, and said iu a muffled voice: "Xo; clothes don't make the man, my friend. Hut they make the bridegroom, and don't you forget it!" And when the policeman came around that way again an hour or two afterward, the young man was silting in exactly the same attitude, except that his hands were a little deeper in his trousers pockets, and his hat pulled a little further down over his eyes. Nelson Trots Again in 8:10 3-4. Cami!i:u>i;k Citv, Ind., Oct. 29.?The champion trotting stallion Nelson proved his right to the title he bears by trotting a mile again here to-day iu ^:10;'4, the same figure as marked on Tuesday. To-day's effort was made under more unfavorable conditions than those which marked Tuesday's efforts, and the opinion is general here that the sou of Young Rolfe is capable of trotting a mile iu 2:10 or better. Mr. Nelson will undoubtedly give the horse another opportunity before leaving for the F'ust. Nelson is a bay horse with brown points, bred by his present owner, C. H. Nelson of Sunnvsidestud, Wntcrvillc, Me. He is now cighf years old, and was sired by Young Rolfe, himself a trotter with a record of 2:21and is out of the pro? ducing dam Grctchcn by Gideon, n worthy representative of the Knox family. He is a horse of splendid substance, weighing fully 1,050pounds iu condition,and stands but a shade under sixteen hands. Last year he was u star performer, trot? ting to a record of 2:1414', but this season he delelopcd surprising speed and has shown phenomenal flights in efl'orts agaiust the watch, beating the champion record for half-mile tracks, and eclipsing all records for stallions. It is pleasing to note that Nelson's \\vq best performances huyp been piutje over the regular oldbtimo cjrculur cq'ursu, Those who desire to have job work done, u ill find it to their interest to send Iheir orders to the Post's new job office. The work will be executed as well as ii can be done in Richmond or Louisville. ?INNKRS AN? COOKS. Ward McAHInter Teil? What They Are and What They Should He. (Krem his new book.) Twenty tears ago there were not over three chefs in private families in this city. It is now the exception not to find a man of fashion keeping a first-class chef or a famous cordon bleu. In the last six years Swedish women cooks have come over here, and are excellent, and by some sup? posed to be heifer than chefs. No woman, in my opinion, can give as finished a din? ner as a man. There is always a some? thing in the dinner which has escaped her. It is like German anil Italian opera?there is a finish to the Italian that the Germans can never get. Hut Swedish cooks de? serve special mention: they are really wonderful?cleanliness itself. That is where the French chef fails. He must have scullions tracking his very footsteps to keep things clean, while the Swedish woman docs her work without making! dirt. These women get nearly as large wages as the men?$00 a month and a scullion maid. What a contrast to living in France! I had the best chef in Pan in IS.')(! for $'.,"?, and the scullion received $3 a month. The question is often asked: What is j the difference in expense to it household I between a chef or u woman cook? This question is only learned by experience, which teaches me that with a woman, my butcher's bill would be $!2.">0 to $-27."> a month: with a chef, $450 to $500. Gro? cer's bill, with a woman cook, say. $7.*); with a chef, $\'2~). This does not include entertaining. For a dinner of twelve or fourteen one's marketing is easily $li(). without the foie gras or fruit. An AI chef's wages is $100 a month: he takes 10 percent commission on the butcher, gro? cer, baker and milkman's hill. If he does not get it directly, he gets it indirectly. In other words, besides Iiis wages, lie counts <in these commissions. 1 speak ; now of the ablest and liest; others not quite so capable take ."i per cent. Always remember that the Frenchman is a creature of impulses, and works for tw o things, glory and money. An every? day dinner wearies him, but a dinner privc, a special dinner, oh, this calls forth Iiis talent, which shows that the custom some have of calling in and employing a chef to cook them a special dinner is cor? rect. If you do not keep a chef out of respcel for your purse or your health, it is a good plan to know of an "artist" whom you can employ on special occasions, with the express agreement thai he submits the list of what he wants, and lets you make the purchases, for these gentry like i to make a little economic, which always benefits themselves, and such economic gives you poor material for him to work upon, instead of good. How often have I heard a hostess boast, "1 never give any attention to the details i of my dinner, I simply tell my butler how many people we arc to have." In nine cases out of ten this is apparent in the dinner. Madame Rothschild, who has always given the best dinners in Paris, personally supervises everything. The great Duchess of Sutherland, the Queen's friend, when she entertained, inspected every arrangement personally herself. I daily continent to my cook on the per? formance of the previous day. No one, especially in this country, can accomplish great results without giving time and at? tention to these details. No French cook will take tiny interest in his work unless he receives praise and criticism; but above all things, you must know how to criticise. If he finds you arc able to ap- | preciate his work when good, and eon-! demn it when bad, he improves, and gives you something of value. Now let us treat of dinners as given be? fore the introduction of chefs, and still preferred by the majority of people. The best talent with poor material may give a fair dinner, but if the material is poor, the dinner will evidence it. For forty years I have always marketed myself and secureed the respect of my butcher, letting him know that I knew as much if not more than he did. In selecting your shin of beef, remem? ber that a fresh shin is always the liest for soup. In choosing fish, look tit their gills, which should lie a bright red. See your filet cut with the fat well mar? bled, cut from young beef. Sweetbreads come in pairs;one fine, one inferior. Pay an extra price, and get your butcher to cut ! them apart and give you only the two large heart breads, leaving to him the two thin throat breads to sell at a reduced price. In poultry there are two kinds of fat, yellow and white. Fowls fed on rice have white fat; those on corn meal, yellow hit. By the feet of the bird you can tell its ago. The black and the red feathered fowls are always preferred. Never take a gray feathered bird. Look at the head of the canvasback and the redhead; see them together, and then you will readily sec the birds to pick, I i. e., the canvasback. Weigh in your hand each snipe or woodcock; the weight I will tell you it' the bird is fat and plump.' In buying terrapin, look at each one.' and see if they arc the simon-pure dia? mond -IKick Clicsapcukcs. 1 n choosing your saddle of mutton, take the short-legged ones, the meat coming well down the leg, nearly reaching the foot: a short, thick, stubby tail must have the look of the pure Southdown, with black legs and feet. Of hothouse grapes, I find the large white grapes the best. .Muscats of Alex? andria. Parch and grind your coffee the day you drink it. Always buy green coffee. Never use the small timbalcs of pate de foie gras, generally given one to each guest. Always have an entire grass, be it large or small, for in this way yon arc apt to get old foie grass thus worked up. Always buy your foie gras from an A 1 house, never from the butcher or or fruit? erer. I here give as a recollection of the past the MKXV IIK AX lll.ll-KASIUO.VIill SOl'TIJKKX IMNXKK.

It is too delicate to transport to the North. I have mndc several attempts to do this, but invariably failed, the turtle dying before it could reach New York. Its shell is gelatinous, all of which is used in the soup. It is only caught in July and August, and even then it is very rare, and brings a high price. On repeatedly visiting the West Indies, I found that two of the best Carolina and (u-orgitt dishes, supposed always to have enianteil from the African brain, were imported from these islands, and really had not even their origin there, but were brought from the Bordeaux to the West Indies, und thence were carried to the South.
