Vi wiiii i.i vi to observe on yesterday
Hint our good neighbor, the Jt, had
taken up tlio iuestIoii of providing for
clerks In tho Railway Postal Service.
Tnr I'lilTtc-ltnoinninndc tho suggestion
somo days ago, moved by n consideration
of the great perils to which these clerks
re e.posed, and wo welcomo so iovvor
Jul niul earnest a coadjutor us tho 1'oit In
tills kooiT work, Surely no men in the
public service have a larger claim upon
the consideration of the Government.
'J heir duties nro complex and laborious
their vigilance must be sleepless, and
their energy unbounded. A high order
of Intelligence) is demanded, to say noth
ing of judgment, sobriety and force of
character. The same qualities, applied in
the 'nun' faithful manner to tho affairs of
private life, would bring in far greater re
gards and lead much more quickly to case
mid competence. Hut this is not all.
Thedangeis which beset these men are
more numerous and more imminent
than those which surround the soldier or
the sailor. Whenever a railway accident
occur1., they are, ne.t to the engineer and
the fireman, the greatest sufferers. In
deed, it is nho3 possible to tho men in
the locomotive to escape by jumping,
for they can nearly always see
the danger in time; but this is seldom if
ecr possible to the postal clerk. His car
is next flic engine, it is closed ut nil points,
and lying bttwucn the ponderous engine
and the perhaps equally heavy Pullman
cars.it is almost invariably crushed like an
i'gg shell when a collision occurs. Some
thing should be done for tho men of the
Jiailway Postal Service. They perform
work that is of Hie utmost value, and they
do it under circumstances of appalling
peril. Tho Government provides for tho
dependent families of those who are
maimed or killed In the military service
why not do likewise in tho casoof men
whose work Is incessant and whose ex
posure to death and suffering is hourly?
The Uenclit Association gives but a poor
and inadequate relief, and it is, beside, a
tax on the living which they cm with
difficulty meet. This teems to be clearly
nn obligation of tho Government. The
Government should respond to it with
promptness and liberality.
Tnri'ii:!. UNnninutiTFns went in for a
poctl time at their shad bake yesterday
and made no bones about it.
Mtu-is 1muii, Hotr, Lodge & Co.,
who rejoice in a gaudy and peculiar ignoi
ii vu of the conditions prevalent at fie
South and who are so voluble in denim
rlution of the tyrannical treatment of the
blacks by the whites, would derive a great
deal of much-needed information by read
ing the full history of therecent WalhalU
rkt in Mississippi. It will be remembered
that a negro named Maury was t Jie cen
tntl figure of this episode. He had become
involved in a dilllculty with a white man,
had attacked and injured him, He lied
unci took refuge in n cabin, where he was
pursued b' a crow il of white men who
intended, it is supposed, to lynch him.
'The owi.er of the cabin defended it and,
hi doing so, "hot and killed one of the
lynching party. He was indicted, tried
nnd found guilty of murder in the loner
courts, but the Supremo Court of Missis
tippi reversed the decree and ordered the
man to be set at liberty, announcing then,
as Fouthcrn courts have done a hundred
times in the past, that the cabin of tho
nearest negio in the State is as much and
us sacredly his castle, as is the proudest
residence the castle of the rich white pro
prietor who inhabits it. Thus the incident
is closed and the court of last appeal in
Mississippi has declared that whito men in
vading the premises of colored men with
out due warrant of law do so at their own
lcri)and must look for no vengeance atthe
hands of the courts. If Messrs. Ixou.ls,
Moat!, I.owik it Co. will persist in worry
ing themselves over a condition of tilings
atthe South which exists only in their
imagination and for which they are not
responsible anyhow, they might as well
pick up n stray fact occasionally.
T. I)n "N'ittTai.m oe, shorn of his rakish
tide-Whiskers, is not at all to the likingof
the American people. It is to bo hoped
that he will not leUie Fourth of July go
Ly without dedicating another pair.
On; i.atkrt iNfon.MATiox is to the effect
that ei-Senator Blaiii is not particularly
Muck on China and would be perfectly
willing to go to Japan instead. This dis
poses effectually of the rumor that Mr.
lii.ui! had special missionary designs on
liina, and leaves us free to assume that
the New Hampshiro statesman had in
h-xv nothing but an oftica and a sphere
of activity which the Granite State is not
ytt large enough to furnish. No doubt
the change from China to Japan will be
indo and will provo entirely satisfactory
toMr.lti.ui:. LifcinTokio isfar, farfrom
hard. There are good restaurants, pleas
anCclubs, pretty girls, agreeabledwellings
and all the necessary adjuncts of a lux
urious existence. The ex-Senator can
fare sumptuously everv day, smoke fine
cigars, drink the best of European wines,
play a lively game of poker and tlirt with
dark-eyed beauties In tho market places.
In fact, unless he be inclined to take
ultra tfvere views of the duties of his
petition as an Extraordinary Knvoy to
the Court of the Mikado, ho can have a
rather giddy tinio. Of course if he sees
tit to "scorn delights and live laborious
ilajs" in the effort to reform Japan, he
can make things mighty tough for hiiu-f-elf
and others; but If lie will be content
to sport with 1'iTri-SiNo beneath the
fhade and with tho tangles of sweet Yum
Yiji'h hair if ho will, in short, sink

the material for town-painting will bo

evc ft is n rather spicy and entertaining
little sheet and tho editor, H. V. Tiiokn,
nppi'urs to be no end of a wag. In tho
April number of "TholJox of Curios,"

"My chief business during my visit is to

into operation as soon as possible. The
new laws aro in the direction of greater

Notwithstanding the unprecedented ad

forced to dcelino nnd another of Mr.
Hodnett's schemes was shelve.!.
A number of congenial Ilohcniiaimverc
lingering over a micinight lunch in ti well
know n Pennsylvania avenue restaurant a
few evenings aco. The conversation hap
pened to turn upon the early peculiarities
of some well-known newspaper men who
have earned national reputations.
"l)o you know that I can tell you a very
funny story about Joe Howard's early
piety," said ono of tho party. "Away
hack early in tho eighties, when loo was
a 12-year old hoy, ho and bis parents, for
n portion of the time, made their home on
Deacon Steele's farm, near Itantan Land
ing, N. J. He was a bright frisky lad, nnd
was well liked by all tho colored peoplo
as w ell as the employes about the place.
"One of Deacon Steele's imperative
rules was that everybody should go to
church nt least once on Sunday. Theie
wcie plenty of horses and comfortable
coineyanccs at command, and it made no
difference whether they wanted to go to
the New llrunsvvlck Baptist, tlio Catholic
or tho Mount JCion colored church. Joe
did not seem to take kindly to going to
church in those days. Ho would resort
to almost evciy conceivable scheme to
avoid it. On n bright Sunday morning in
April, when all hands were about to take
their seats in the roekavvay and spring
wagon to start lor church, it was sud
denly discovered that Joo had no hat to
wear, and no one could explain as to
what had become of it. Tlio consequence
was .loo had to be left at home.
"Tho following Sunday ho was daring
enoueh to play tho same racket; but tho
deacon had 'caught on,' and the result
w as that Joo Hon aril's hat was resurrected
fiom an old anb-barrel, brushed off, mid
he had to go to church.
"In those davs." continued the racon
teur, "young Howatd had another pecu
liarity. He had a shephoid dog, and the
two were very much attached to each
oilier. It was seldom that you would see
them separated. In Iho early days in tho
spring when the men were manipulating
the plows, it was almost an every-day oc
currence to see Joe and his dog following
the plow in the furrow. The doz would
get tired nnd heated up and lie dotvn in
the new-turned furrow to cool off. Many
a time Joe and tho dog were found sleep
ing side by side in the same plow-track.
Joe was a great lad in those days, and I
cannot see that he changes much."
In the eyes of most people there seems
to be something sinstcr nnd Mcphistopbe
lian about the attaches of a circus. This
is probably due to the associations of
childhood when the tented showr.was
shrouded in mystery through which the
youthful imaginations caught fitful
gleams of gilt-edged and fascinating
wicKeaness. iJurmg tno stav ot r-ore-naueh's
aecrccation in this citv an inci
dent occurred w hich is calculated to dis
pel the fond illusion of youth.
On tho evening of the last Foronaugh
performance a gentleman, accompanied by
a lady, walked up to the ticket box and
called for two one-dollar seats, tendering
in payment a live and u one dollar bill,
under the impression that tbey were both
notes of the latter denomination.- Ho
was lost in the crowd before Ticket
Seller Jordan could give him his change.
After selling a few moro tickets, Mr.
Jonian vacated his post and went to the
big tent with what would seem to be tho
hopeless intention of singling out two in
dividuals from a crowd of twelve thou
sand. But he finally found them and
asked the gentlemen if he had not lost
Sizing up the contents of his purse that
astonished individual discovered the dis
crepancy. Mr. Jordan handed over the
four dollars and then hurried back to his
post of duty, having convinced at least
one individual that the circus man Is not
quite so blaCK as he is sometimes painted.
Senator Morrill of Vermont was SO
jeans old on the 11th ultimo, yet ho pre
serves Hie line enthusiasm of youth about
many tilings. Foriustancp, I saw him at
the Forepaugh show last Thursday. Ho
moved about with alertness, looked at the
nnlmalswith interest-and when it came
to the ring performances and race3 ho dis
played all the vivacity of youth.
One of the most, inviting of all the um
brageous spots in Washington to my
mind is Franklin Park. It is well kept.
There is not an unsightly shrub or treo on
tho grounds. I find there a refreshing
perfection of ereenness that indicates that
tho vital sap is buoyant and vigorous. The
varied hues of blossoms here and there
form n charming contrast to the deep
verdancy of the thick foliuge.
1 have no doubt that when everything
in tho nature of rubbish and lacerated
turf In the neighborhood of tho Lafayette
Monument in Lafayette Park is removed,
appearances will no kindlier; but even
then there will remain much room for im
provement. I notice trees in the park
that cumber tho ground nnd ought
to be cut down. Soma of the big 'oaks
havo spread themselves so as to over
shadow and over-crowd trees of smaller
growth, so that the latter begin to look
ugly and decrepit. This is notably the
caso near the center of the park, wliere a
great oak has elbowed two cedars nearly
to death. They look almost lifeless with
tlicir dark emaciated houghs.

Dr. May was perhaps the oldest resident
ot Washington. Ho was born in tills city
on Muy 10, 1S12, and, though ho has not
lived hero continuously, hchas spent prac
tically tho whole ol his lougllfeln thoclty
of his birth. He was from his early man
hood one of the most prominent citizens
of the Capital. Distinguished ns n phy
sician, foremost in movements of enter
prise and development, a leader in social
life, and n gentleman of illustrious Uncage
anil elegant culture, Dr. May has, for
more than half a century, been a con
Miicuous figure In Washington,
Dr. .7. F. May, at 77.
Ho had a brilliant reputation in medi
cine and surgery, having been Hie first in
this part of the world to perforin success

inl831, graduated in medicine in IS. I,
completed his studies in Paris in 1337,
where he attended the lectures of Vclpeau
and of the celebrated physiologist Ma
gendie. lie was Professor of Surgery in the
University of Maryland at tho age of
twenty-five. In 1811 ho and tho late Dr.
Sewall reorganized the Medical Depart
ment of Columbia College, and lie was
Professor of Anatomy and Surgery
therein until 1858.
A contemporary of Dts. Hall and John
hton, he shared with them tho first honors
in general practice, and was ici(e prln
ccps in his specialty of surgery. The other
two members of the once famous trium
virate have; preceded Dr. May by many
years. He had nearly reached the ripe
ago of seventy-nine, in full possession of
pnyiieal and mental vigor. Ho was a
jnan of commanding presence and of that
j ow erf ul and impressive physique which
is characteristic of the family. Jlis two
brothers, Charles, of the Army, and
George, who accumulated a large fortune
in isew uneans, were uotn men oi large

also his sons "Villiam and Frederick, the.

Dr. May was ono of President Lincoln's
attending physicians at the time of the
assassination by Wilkes Booth, and, by a
singular coincidence, was called upon,
somo days later, to perform an autopsy
on the corpse of the assassin. It has been
but a week or two since his son, Dr.
William May, published a statement
describing the event and giving the facts
of his distinguished father's identification
of Uooth oy means of a scar on the neck
which he had treated years before.

four daughters, to whom will go his large
The funeral will take place on Monday
at !i j). in. from St. Paul's Church, and the
remains will bo interred in Hock Creek
Cemetery. Undoubtedly the occasion will
bring together a largo assemblage of old
Washington families, among whom the
Mays lime always been prominent. It is
understood that Dr. William May, son of
the deceased, and himself a brilliant and
successful physician, will bo the executor
of the estate.
