She I as Most Devoted Wife and Charm
ing Woman as Well.
One likes to read how tho Czarina con
stantly accompanies her husband in his rides
and drives. Not only does it indicate wifely
devotion, but it proves an intrepidity too
often denied as an attributo to woman. It is
said that she thinks her presence la a defense
from nihilists. Certainly sho knows that a
shot aimed at him might reach her; that a
bomb under the carriage would not bo dis
criminating. Yet she hopes that herpresenco
may prevent tho bomb-throwing, and sho
equally hopes that tho bullet may reach her,
if so it bo that she saves his life.
Rut one of tho pleasantcst things to read
about her is tho motherly devotion to tho
moral welfare of lier children. In this sho is
nn cxnmple to all mothers. Sho allows no
governess, but employs teachers, who, com
ing but a few hours a day and those days not
consecutive, havo not time to make a lasting
impression on the moral natnte of her chil
dren, as would ono employed constantly.
Sho is very small, and tho contrast between
her figure and that of the Czar, who Is almost
gigantic, is very remarkable. Her oldest
boy is like her In size a fact that somewhat
troubles the Russian people, accustomed to
great sizo in rulers. But his mother's train
ing has developed in him a strong, resoluto
character, conscientious and studious an'd
capablo of standing by a conviction.

Growing, Hostility in the Senate to
the Taylor Nomination.
Action of tie President in Violating the
Democratic Principle of Horns Bale for tho
District Severely Criticised Senate Com
mittee Opposed to the Appointment
Although all tho Senators refused to bo
quoted yesterday on the question of tho con
firmation of Mr. Taylor, appointed by Presi
dent Cleveland to be Recordor of Deeds for
the Dlstrlctlt was declared very emphatically
by every one approached that the selection
was a very injudicious ono and would proba
bly not bo confirmed.
Tho .opposition to Mr. Taylor has been
growing stronger all the timo, and it may be
stated, without contradiction, that the Senato
Commlttoo on tho District will report tho
nomination unfavorably, probably with not
more than ono, or at most two, dissenting
votes. In this case there is very small hopo
for a favorable vote by tho Senate. So far as
a voto in that body i3 concerned, thero is no
possibility of getting favorable action. AH
tho southern Senators will voto against it, and
tho sentiment against the nppointoo has been
so strongly presented to northern Senators
that a number of them will oppose it. Tho
principle of homo rnle for tho District is gen
erally admitted to bo more and more a matter
of justico as tho local interests of the city in
crease. A Senator who refused to havo his name
used declared yesterday that Taylor would
not get more than a dozen votos in tho Senato
at present indications. He was not merely op
posed to tho principle of non-resident 'ap
pointments, but thought tho President had
gone out of his way to select Taylor, whom
ho knew would bo an ofTensHo man lo a great
manp people. After criticising this conduct
of the President he declared that there was so
slight a ehanco of confirmation that it was
not worth worrying about,
It is understood that a number of letters
havo been received and are on Hie in the Dis
trict Committee room opposing the appoint
ment and urging that it bo reported un
favorably. -

of Poaching in Yellowstone Park-
Representativo Lacey, of Iowa, has re
ported to the Houso from tho Committee on
rublic Lands a bill having for its object tho
protection of the birds and animals in tho
l'ellowstono National Park. In an accom
panying report Mr. Lacey says in part:
"There has been for some years a necessity
for a law to runish crimes in tho Yellowstone
National Park. Perpetration of crimes havo
escaped all punishment for want of the nec
essary legislation. Tho bill reported attaches
the park to the judicial district of Wyoming
and gives tho criminal statutes of that state
full force over tho park.
"Out of the vast herds of millions of
buffaloes that a fewjyears ago covered the
plains of America a few hundred only remain,

Ono of the purposes of setting aside tho park
has been to preserve this little herd. A fow
days ago poachers entered tho ptrk and com
menced tho slaughter of theso animals."

Prices Have Ranged Higher in Splto of
Occasional Iiajs of Depression.
New YonK, April 7. An active business was
done on the stock exchungo during the two
hours of trading to-day which was well dls
tribuled throughout the list. Thero was
somo London selling at tho opening in St
Paul, Louisvillo and Nashville, and Atchi
son, tho latter giving nway only , but
tho other two 6tocks receiving Jf. In tho
early dealings the speculation w.13 weak and
a fractional decline took place. The depres
sion was of brief duration, and prfccs soon
took an upward turn under the leadership of
Chicago Gas, which, after a decline of , sold
up 1 on covering of shorts. Distilling
was bought on the advice of President Green
hut, of the trust, who asserts that the recent
decline against tho company is of no import
ance. The improvement in tho rest of tho list was
merely.fractlonal, and toward 11 o'clock the
upward trend was checked by the inaugura
tion ot a selling movement in Chicago Gas,
which was based on fears that the attorney
general of Illinois will decide against tho
compnny in tho quo warranto proceedings.
Iioforo the bottom was reached the stock had
declined 2 per cent, with only a rally of H
at tho close. Tho break in Chicago Gas had
the effect of weakening the entire market
and the general tendency was downward.
Up to 12 o'clock some of tho specialties
made material advances, but in the main tho
market was heavy at the closo, prices, how
ever, compared with tho closing 'figures of
yesterday, being irregular. Tho changes,
however, are. very narrow, the declines being
within a fraction, while only in one ca30 was
thereon ad vaneo over a fraction, the excep
tion being Susquehanna and Western pre
ferred, which shows n gain of 1 per cent
Chicago Gas is down , and tho Grangers
a.i- General Electric, Lead preferred,
and Pittsburg C. C. C. and St Louis pre

lation in the late dealings was rather unex
pected, in view of the good bank statement
which, especially by tho increase in loans,
showed a revival In trade, which the mer
cantile agencies in their weekly circular re
ports has liegun.
Tho stock market has in tho main moved
upward as a result of tho week's transactions,
notwithstanding that tho latter trading cut off
somo of tho earlier advances. Somo few
shares show loses, including Oregon Naviga

'The bang early or the bang straight Is no
longer in favor. Society girls now wear
their hair combed book smoothly from their
forehead. At least those who can stand it
do, for it la undeniably a most trying fashion.
Mrs. Cleveland and Mrs. Blssell seem to have
set the fashion here. During the early part
of the season an enterprising press woman
called at the White House and made a study
of the way Mrs. Cleveland arranged her hair.
After this she arranged her own in tho same
way and had a picture taken. It was pub
lished under the heading ''Mrs. Cleveland's

Mrs. Bisseil's singing was heard for the
first time in public hero on Tuesday after
noon at Senator Hale's residence. Her voice
is a rare and beautiful mezzo soprano, very
equal in quality and faultless in culture.
There is an unusual depth of tone in tho lower
register that stirs the listener with a certain
intensity. Mrs. Bisseil's specialty is the senti
mental song, Intellectual es to music, like
those of Schubert and Schumann, a great
relief after those light ballads in which sing
ers of to-day beg some indefinable somebody
to "kiss them quick and let them go," or
warblo sweetly about "No, sir; no, sir, no,
ho, ho, ho, sir." or vocalize in operatic
pyrotechnics, ending with a spurt upward
like a water spout on the high o's, a crescendo
shriek, and all the dreadful sounds that are
colled cultivated singing.
First Young Girl I'm so glad Marie Stirling
is to be married at last.
Second young girl Why?
First Y. G. O, I'm so dreadfully tired of
hearing about it. you know. Ever sinco her
engagement was announced last year tho
papers have periodical spells of saying tho
same old things about her once every seven
days or every fourteen days or so, like
malaria, you know.
There is a man who occasionally visits
Washington, n brother-in-law of a Senator,
who enjoys tho proud distinction of being able
to say that ho danced with Mrs. Cleveland at
ono ot Mrs. Whitney's bolls.
It happened in this wny: He escorted his
wife and ber sister to the ball and communi
cated to them his ambition, namely, that of
dancing with tho President's wife, never
dreaming that such a thing would be possi
ble. When no lounu nimseu iaco to lace with
tho President nnd hi3 lovely bride, this
brother-in-law of a Senator asked Mrs. Cleve
land for a dance, respectfully deferring to the
cniet .Executive.
"Its just as Mrs. Cleveland decides," said
the President.
Mrs. Cleveland, with her usual tact, de
cided that while she would be glad to grant
tho request it would never do, as so many
others would ask for a dance and there
would be no end of dancing for her.
Just then Mrs. Whitney came up and her
aid was enlisted.
"We'll manage it," said Mrs. Whitney, and
letting down the portiere that screened the
alcove where they were standing from the
ball room, she gave her sanction as hostess
of the dance. "And I danced with her for at
least five minutes," said the delighted man.

It is astonishing how many widows there
are In Washington. A bright young girl says
that, "next to the monument, the widows are
the most noticeable thing about the place."
A Congressman was telling some ladies a
touching story of a widow the other day. He
was single and wealthy and she was a single
widow and a poor ono, nnd, of course, sho
naturally came to him for aid and a government
Elace. She was on the verge of starvation,
ad broken her last 55 note to pay car faro
to the CapitoL She owed a week's board at
ono of the most expeiislve hotels in town.
The widow wept tears that destroyed the
freshness of her scented black-embroidered
Not being proof against a widow's tears, the
Congressman indited a note to his friend, the
Secretary of , and told him he must give
this poor widow a place in his department.
Handing her the note he directed her where
to go, and told her what to say. "And," ho
ndded, "if you have any more tears on tap
just turn them on," but tho last state of that
widow was wcrse than the first
Thinking be would call to see her one day
about a month afterward, the Congressman
started out and inquired of his friend, the
Secretary, where she was?
"O! she's married," said tho Secretary,"and
has gone to New York."

Rev. Clarence BIspham, who was married
to Mfcs Elizabeth Gray Casoy in St John's
church recently, is a prince of good fellows,
clergyman though he ls.but everybody knows
tho clergy are a jolly lot when they are off
duty, so to speak.
Mr. BIspham can tell as good a joke and
laugh as heartily at one as any other fellow.
Like all persons possessing a lively sense ot
humor, he is just as quick to seo the solemn or
pathetic as he goes on his rounds among his
Ono night he was walking down rennsjl
vania avenue. It was late, and ho was
accosted by a man who asked:
"Aro you a clergyman?"
"Yes, he replied.
"Well, will you come with me? I have just
arrived In the city and I want to bo married."
As they walked along Mr. Blspham's now
acquaintanco confided to him the fact that be
was an actor and manager ot a large com
pany that had just come to town and he
wanted to marry his leading lady.
Tho ceremony was performed according to
the prayer book, and tho next day Mr.
BIspham, wishing to show some kind atten
tion to his new friends, visited them and
took a handsome new prayer book as a bridal
In a day or two Mr. BIspham saw the actor,
who thanked him again for the present he
had given to himself and his bride, and
said: "When I went home last night I found
my wife sitting by tho fire reading it and I
saw that she had been crying. Then I asked
her what it was. She handed the book to me
opened at the marriage ceremony, and said:
"OUohn, let's live up to this beautiful mar
riage ceremony all our lives."
Mr. BIspham kept sight of his new friends
while tbey were in the city, and the next
Sunday all of the company went to service at
St Michael's. All of w hich goes to show that
a clergyman with broad human sympathies
can do an immense amount of good as ho
goes his way in this naughty world of ours.
"What do you think of the pictures of
yourself in the comic papers?" asked a young
gin 01 secretary uoice smith.
"Do I'really loot like them?" he Inquired.
"No. of course not." she said.
However, no one, not oven a woman, could
bo more regretful of a growing tendency to
adipose than tho Secretary. In his case it is
more of a foe to gallantry than to good looks.
Last winter when a lady caller dropped a
card case at tho Secretary's feet, he imme
diately stooped to pick iitup, forgetting that
he had on his full dress suit, which must have
Deen tighter somewterethanbisomceclothes.
He did not quite get down to tho card-case;
some article of his apparel, I'll not attempt to
say which, prevented a complete stoop, and
had not a younger man accomplished the feat,
the situation might have been mora cmbarass
ing to the Secretary than it really was.
Among tho illustrations of the mutations of
lifo there can hardly be a sadder one than
the bereavement of the family of Sena
tor Cockreil and the lovely daughter
Marion, whoso presentation, to society early
in the Winter was made with such brilliant
promise for a pleasant season. The death ot
her mother so soon after her arrival at' home
from her studies abroad, was a sad blow to
the young girl, but, with patient heroism, she
has taken up the life work of her mother
where she laid it down, the care of her
father's home and the yonngei sisters and

A striking coincidence of resemblance be

still more of n coincidence may bo cited in the
fact that their name 13 expressive of their
