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

fought a battle nor smelt gunpowder, yet

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,

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

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.

trying to be witty on several occasions,

a policeman, touching him on the shoul?
He looked up a moment with dull, heavy,
lack-lustre eyes, and then looked down
"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
"Have you had your pocket picked?"
'?Worse than that."
"Been worked bv confidence men?"
"Been held up and robbed?"
"You seem to be all here. I don't see

"No!" snorted the young man. "You
don't see anything missing! Everything's
He jumped up, pushed his lint back, and
"Do vou see this valise?"
"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

"What of it? Go and explain the case
"She'd think the explanation was a
little too thin."
"Brace up, young fellow," said the'
policeman. "What's a suit of clothes I

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
"Xo; clothes don't make the man, my
friend. Hut they make the bridegroom,

And when the policeman came around

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

a horse of splendid substance, weighing

?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
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

gills, which should lie a bright red.
See your filet cut with the fat well mar?

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

1 n choosing your saddle of mutton, take
the short-legged ones, the meat coming
