Ho throw away tho stump of his cheroot as ho
ascended tho steps of tho North Pennsylvania
street residence yesterday afternoon, and as ho
touched tho bell adjusted his crimson necktie.
Ho wanted to make as good a first impression
as possible, because it was part of his busi
ness. He was selling a new cosmetic.
It was well he took tho precaution, for as
the portals opened ho beheld a female face.
It was ctern and austere, for it was attached
to a woman of some years, who bore all tho
marks of spinsterhood. Sho woro glasses and
gave one the impression that her features, as
well as her intellect, bad been sharpened by
contact with children in the schoolroom. Her
corrugated faco made oven the nerve of tho
cosmetic vender wriggle with npprehensiou.
But it was too late to retreat.
'Good day, miss," ho said, politely, remov
ing his hat and bowing low. 'Is your mother
The corners of that grim mouth began to
elevate. "No, sir, she's not in. Will I do?"
He saw his advantage anil replied: "Why
certainly, you'll do miss," adding undor his
breath, "in a pinch."
But ho got inside and as ho deposited bi3
hat within easy reach, ho asked: "I called to
inquire, miss, ii you needed any cosmetic."
She was sitting primly on the edge of a
chair across the room waiting for him to
make known his business, and us these words
smote her ears that coffee-colored face turned
"What mado you ask such a question as
that?" she asked sharply.
"Why, I'm a little near-sighted that is,
I'm selling cosmetic," ho stammered.
"Well, then, I must inform you that I do
not need any. Was that ali?"
But ho wasn't going to bo bluffed.
"May I ask in parting if you ever used
any?" ho asked as he reached for his hat.
"No. sir. I don't."
"Well, I don't know only thoso Hamilton
cirls across tho street told me I might call
here, out they didn't think I could sell you
Sho pricked up her ears.
'Did they buy any?"
"Yes, I sold each of them three bottles. I
know, miss, that you may not need any, but
this cosmetic of mine is warranted to remove
all skin blemishes, freckles, eruptions, and
give a beautiful, healthy color to the skin.
Not only this, but it will render the skin soft
and smooth just like a sealskin, ma'am."

REST AS A BEAUTIFIER.
A Few Old Notions Regarding Work Ex
ploded. A doctor, perhaps spea ing from practical
experience, says: "Alwnys begin your holi
days with a rest." In theso modern days wo
do not mako sufficient use of our beds. I
am satisfied that many overworked women
would derivo incalculable benefit if they
would find the time unci persuade themselves
to take a long dny's rest in bed. Best durirg
tho first few days of a holiday Is for tho pur
pose of al owing of soine recovery of power.
Of what use is it trying to extract energy out
of jaded muscles? The tissues throughout
the body aro in need of renovation- that is to
say, the supply of healtny nutriment.
For some timo previously tho supply of
nutrition sufficient for their needs has utterly
fniled. Owing to tho del rested condition
of health, the overworked" person has been
unable to eat, while, from tho sumo reason,
tho food which has been eaten has failed to
digest. Thus common sense clearly indicates
that for the first few days of a holiday the
policy absolute rest should bu adopted by
tho overworked person. Then, with tho be
ginning of tho recovery of power comes the
delicious sensation of energy being again in
There was a prevalent theory in our grand
mothers' days that comfort and rest were
wicked, and that to lio down in tho daytime
was permissible only to women seriously ill.
This notion is now among tho exploded ones
nnd it is generally admitted that whatever t lmo
is taktn tor rest should bo spent in a hori
zontal position, if possible, since there is then
no strain on the muscle3 nnd tho circulation
It is rather troublesome to change one's
garments for a half hour's rest, but if one
has a pretty wrapper in which to tako tho
siesta it does not seem such a wasto of time.

TEXT BOOKS AND SALARIES
East Washington Citizens' Associa
tion Discuss Them.
MR. SELLER'S PLAIN LANGUAGE
Thinks Supt. Powell's Submission of His
Own Work to tho Judgment of Princi
pals Ib Dangerously Close to Corruption
Teachers' Pay Ought to Be Increased.
School books, gymnaalums and teachers'
salaries were discussed by tho committeo on
schools for tho East Washington Association,
at Wnllach school last night. Upon Invitation
M. I. Weller, Prof, John Freeman, and J. W.
Babson were present.
Mr. Weller sot forth at length his ideas for
escaping from paying tribute to the book
trust or any other publishers. Ho said It had
been oharged that $5,000 was paid during the
last Congress by a firm of book publishers to
influence legislation regarding books, and
that a supervising principal hnd resigned his
position in order to lobby for certain pub
lishers. Ho did not propose to go into those
charges. Ho referred to them merely to ex
plain why he mado the proposals ho had laid
before the association. Ho had heard that
certain readers had been referred to tho su
pervising principals of tho schools for their
approval, with a view to adoption in tho
schools. If theso principals were capable of
criticising tho books and determining whether
they ought to bo used, they were capablo of
writing text books that would ho satisfactory.
The readers referred to were in part written
by Supt. William B. Powell, nnd it seemed im
proper that they who were subordinates of
the superintendent should bo sot to judge
whether his books should be used. It would
be human nature for them to bo iniluenced In
their decision by their personnl interest.
Furthermore he regarded it as improper for
the superintendent to have his reader copy
righted uud introduced into the schools.
No employe in tho other departments of tho
government is allowed to make a protlt from
his work under similar circumstances. He hnd
nothing against Mr. Powell, whom he had
met only a few times, but ho considered this
a species of corruption.
It was suggested by Principal Stuart that a
law passed at the last session of Congress
prevented any one in tho employ of the
schools from making money from any book
he might publish.
Mr. Weller answered he knew that becauso
ho had written the law that was passed, but it
had been emasculated in tho Senate. Tho law
as passed prohibited a profit from sales in
the District, but not in the country at large.
He spoke of these things now, however, only
to give reasons for his plan.
This was for the supervising principals to
prepare all the text books to bo used in the
District, and to bavo them published at the
Government Printing Office. Tho District
would thus own the copyright and the books.
The cost of tho first 1 sues would be greater
than for books bought of publishers, but sub
sequent editions would bo cheaper. To a sug
gestion of Prof. Freeman that California had
tried tho plan of publishing her own books,
ho replied that probably they had not gone
about it in tho right way. He asked Princi
pal Stuart about tho feasibility of having the
texts of required books written by the princi
pals. Mr. Stuart replied that the publishing
houses employ men of special fitness for tho
work at large salaries to do this work, and
that principals would not have the timo to do
tho work well in connection with their other
Mr. Weller replied that as a taxpayer he
was perfectly willing to have men employed
specially to prepare tho books. He was sure
they could bo found among tho principals
and would bo much better fitted for the duty
by their practical experience as teachers. Ho
thought it duo the National Capital that the
books should be the bast that could be made.
Ho also urged that teachers should be berter
paid, that more schools should be established,
and that there should be manual training
Mr. Weller's proposition to have all text
books copyrighted and published by tho
Government was laid over as unfinished" busi-
ness for tho next meeting, and Dr. W. W. wnetner or not j.exas iever couiu ue coin
Hubbell was designated to consult with Com- municated to their cattlo by the importation
missioner of Education Harris. It was pro
posed, if possible, to plnce tho proposition of
text-books under his charge.
Mr. Weller also read from a report of tho
District Committee of tho House, before
which Supt. Powell had appeared, and in
which it wns shown that he had practically
tho choice of book3 for tho schools. Ho
presented lists of bids from Bnllantyne, of
Washington, and Dulaney, of Baltimore, by
which it appoared. he alleged, that thero wiu
collusion. The bids differed by only n few
cents on each item, and appeared to be ar
ranged so that ono publisher should get tho
contract on one class of books and tho other
on the next. These were the only two bids
taken, as he understood.
Resolutions were adopted upon suggestion
of Chairman R. F. Hill and Dr. Hubbell. that
no salary of a teacher In the District schools
should be less than $700 a year, and that other
salaries should be increased according to
character of service; that gymnasiums should
be established at tho Wallach and Maury
schools to test their usefulness with a view to
providing one for every school; and at the
instance of Mr. A. Girouard, that the street
at tho Maury school bo paved. This last was
earnestly seconded by Principal Stuart.
Mr. Babson suggested that representatives
of school committees of other associations
bo Invited to meet with this committee aDd
there was a discussion whether this would
bo better or to wnit till plans had been per
fected and reported to the East Washington

offico authorities yesterday refused fuithor

DR. BILLINGS THEIR AUTHORITY.
German Officials Said to Base Exclusion
of American Cattle Upon His Writings.
Agricultural Department officials who aro
watching tha progress of negotiations be
tween Germany nnd tho United States over
tho question of excluding American cattlo
incline to tho belief that beneath her latest
move the European power has prepared for a
clever stroke of diplomacy.
The announcement from semi-official
sources that the German government hnd
agreed to leave tho crucal point of dispute
1exas lever could be com-
of Amorican stock to the preponderance of
expert opinion, seemed on its face a material
concession to the United States. It might
.have been accepted as such but for the
qualifying statement that their chief author
ity would be Dr. Frank Billings, of Nebraska.
The work of Dr. Billings Is well known at
the department. It is stated there that he
was formerly connected with the State agri
cultural experimental station of Nebraska,
and among other labors which he conducted
and which brought his name before the pub
lic were experiments upon swine in further
ance of an inoculation theory, which thesclen
tifio men of the department smile at. Dr.
Billings is a Democrat, and at the beginning
of this administration was a candidate, but
an unsuccessful one, for the position held by
Dr. D. E. Salmon, chief of tho Bureau of
A thorough investigation of the propoga
tion of Texas lever, conducted by the Bureau
of Animal Industry before tho present compli
cations with Germany had arisen, led to con
clusions which preclude the belief that the
germs could be spread abroad W the exporta
tion of Northern cattle. Dr. Billings, how
over, antagonized Dr. Salmon's verdict and
wrote a paper which furnishes just the au
thority which the Germans would doubtless
desire. Officials of the Agricultural Depart
ment say that it is evident that Germany has
secured tho writings of Dr. Billings on tho
subject, hence its avowed intention to rest its
case upon his opinion.
Bureau scientists assert that Dr. Billings
has strongly antagonized the department's
work recently, and think that he may be aid
ing the Germans in this matter. Tho news
that the Hamburg authoritins passed two car
goes of cattle as healthy, and that Prussian
sanitary officers, who were ordered to Ham
burg, discovered Texas fever, confirms the
belief at tho Agricultural Department that the
exclusion of American cattlo was inspired by
tho government as a retaliatory mensuro
against that clause of the sugar schedule
which operated against German interests.
HAD BEEN SUNSTRUCK.
Documentary Evidcnco Bearing on
Sanity of Lieut. Welch.

tho Secretary of War to inquire into the men
tal condition of Lieut. Blanton C. Welch, of
tho Fifteenth Infantry, who last summer

who deniod in tho most positivo terms that ho
was mentally unbalanced.
Documentary evidence was given showing
that the lieu enant had several years ago

army surgeons who attended him at that
timo, the sunstroke had affecto d his mind.

"Resolved, That we tender our sincere
sympathy to the Intorstato Democratic Asso

partments of the general government, as we
feel assured that In contemplating "tho
handwriting on the wall" they ara sick at

takan to covor, and we congratulate our com
rades and the widows and orphans of those
who died in the service of their country upon

of War to Cuba.
New York, Nov. 8. Victor J. La Cova, a
packer, of 141 Franklin street, has been held
in 825,000 bail to tho Federal grand jury. He

line, for placing cartrides among barrels of
tallow on the company's steamer YumarrI,
bound from this city to Havana, Cuba.
Whether tho company intends to traco tha
disasters to their otner vessels during the past
year to the same source was not developed at
the hearing to-day. Both sides were bent on
keeping back their most important testimony.

Beard and John B. Leighton, two Pinkerton
detectives, who swore that on October 8, last,
they called on De La Cova and asked him if
ho could ship 12,000 cartridges for them to
navnna. Ho said he could, and then, in con
fidence, said ho had already sent a consign
ment of cartridges to Cuba on the Yumarri.

which tho detectives took along and produced
