"Fresh From the filth" Fire O'clock Teas Shakespeare on Base Hall (Jould Kliudon Journalism the W rid Over Ten Dollar Hoquets -Oath Figuring As Clara It lie Ed or the World Etc., Etc. And now, when, in the hazy September weather, the fair daughter of Fashion, de siring to exercise her muscles, at the same time Uiat she expands her lungs, by breath ing in the crisp, fresh, invigorating air. rides "tandem" with her lover through the highways and byways, w hat shall she wear? Upon her wind-blown tresses, struggling hart to find their errant wav out of prim coil and unrelenting poiiipadour, and half succeeding, she may place a little cap, close-fitting, either grave or gay. Within the neck-band of her jersev-walst. and compassing, high up, her ivory throat, must be a band of linen, barely visible. About this bodice, aud around her neck, no giddy ribbsns Muttering to the breeze, but. as the sailors say, she must be "taut" "close-reefed." Perfectly plain, and not too full, must be her cycling skirt, cut longer than her walk ing suits. It may be, in the dark, almost "invisible" shades of light-weight ciotli or flannel on the brown or gray order, but is prettier still if of tho new cigar brown, Saiamrubo blue, very dark red, prune color or green. Of course her cap and Jersey must either match the skirt or form some fashionable contrasting combination. I'pon the feet that "from beneath her pet ticoat like little mice iieep in and out," she will wear a tennis shoe, and her gloves must be such as she would make use of in horseback riding. Thus attired, she will make a type of beauty excelling Alma Tadema's, whose conceptions of female loveliness are not high; and no doubt the result will be a next year's June wedding. The five o'clock tea has become an insti tution in America as well as English Hcie- ty. The hostess and those receiving with her, wear full dress, but the guests arrive in walking suits. The drawing room, iut the dining room, is the legitimate place for these teas, which are cozily spread at one end of it on a table graced witli a hissing silver urn, flanked by very light refresh ments, not too profusely offered. Delicate sandwiches, morsels of cake in small fancy shapes, fruits, and ices complete the menu. A gentleman who was. for years, 'a gov ernment official at Washington, and at one time speaker of the house, says there is a mistaken Idea concerning the expense of living in the "city of magnificent distances.' There is a general belief that a family cannot live there In decency or c imfort unless possessed of an independent fortune. Of course, if people go t i the Capital, desiring to cut a wide swatli aid be in the swim, it is easy to dispose of a princely income in short order; but on the other hand, there is a vast number of small houses in respectable neighborhoods, worth from 52,000 to S4.000, which may readily be rented at reasonable rates, while the market prices are no more exorbitant than elsewhere. I myself know a family of six who occupy, there, a pleasantly fur nished house, admirably adapted to their needs, at a yearly rental of $300. It is pleasant to know that the Gould Kingdon marriage was satisfactory to ail parties, and will make no breach in the bridegroom's family, all of whom were wit nesses to the nuptials. Miss King don had not long been en gaged In her professional career, having entered upon it but about six years ago, as Marianne In "The Two Orphans." since which time she has appeared in "Youth," 'The White Slave" and as "Mvsia in the Wooden Spoon." Her first apjiearance in New York was at Daly's, October, 18S4, in the last-named play. "Love on Crutches" was the latest doubt less, in which an American public will see her present role being tliat of Mrs. George Gould. Her picture, published in the last Clipper, represents her with the usual down-drooping head and uplifted eyes which embody the stock jie of the pro fessional actress. She would not strictly speaking, be called beautiful. The mouth is too large and the nose too broad and flat to merit that description, but there is some thing fine in the large foreign looking ejes, raised under the carelessly banged hair reaching to the eyebrows, and a sweet gentle expression about the full parted lips. The furor of Shakespeare worship con tinues unabated in this country. In order to be considered one of the elite tliecrcmc Ie l crane of the poetic literati one must be half mad on the perfection of Shakes pearian genius. The Leonard Scott Ihiblishing Co. of Philadelphia Issue, monthly, a little maga zine, now in its third volume, entitled. "SMicpciriiita," which is devoted en tirely to an autopsy (if I may use the term) of the whole body of Shakespeare's works, combined with reviews and criticisms of the dramatic artists who present them be fore the footlights. His every expression is dwelt uion as the sacred philoIogUt dwells on the Greek and Hebrew phrases, uikjii whose proper translations hang the dogmas and doctrines which promise either weal or woe to an anxious world. There are men whose entire literary' re search is given to tlds branch of study, in ttie endeavor to prove that not only was he the greatest writer who ever lived, but that his knowledge extended toward the future, as well as covering all that was past. In tins connection. 1 append an amusing extract from the September number of the magazine referred to: I Shakespeare on Base Ball. Some one lias collated ttie follow ing references to base I hall in Shakespeare: "The nine worthies." "Pa-don me if I speak like a captain." Will make hint lly an ordinary pitch." Xo doubt but that he hath got a quiet i pitch." "I'll have an action of battery against him" "Masking the business from I the common eye." "Kind umpire of men's miseries." "Must have a stop." "Had no other hooks but the t-core and the tally." "As swift in motion as a ball." "A hit, a very palpable hit." "It was a black. Ill favored My." "For nothing can seem foul to those that win." "Our play Is preferred." "The base is right" " Tis time we twain did show ourselves in the field." "Taste your legs; put them in motion." "He that runs fastest gets the ring." "Would I were gently put out of office before I were forced out." A lady who attended, not long ago, an afternoon reception at the White House, thus describes the appearance of "tho first lady of the land": "She looked to mo in expressibly pretty just like a young girl fresli from her bath. She was dressed in a plain white mull, with a round infant waist, embellished with simple ruffles of Valenciennes lace. A loose mull sash, carelessly knotted, confined the bodice. Her hair, slightly curled, was thrown back from her face in tho prevailing fashion. 1 don't think there was a particle of powder on her skin, nevertheless her complexion was of a pure waxen whiteness. I was wonderfully fascinated with tier and her cordial, friendly manners.'' On October 23, of this year, will be laid at Itichmnnd, Va., the corner-stone of ttie monument to Gen. Lee. Ezekiel. an American sculptor in Italy, will be one of the designers of the monument The total number of newspapers In the world is estimaten to be about 35,000, one newspaper supposed to be printed for about ever)' 28,000 people. Germany Is said to have about 5,500 typographical truth-tellers, 800 of which are dallies. England 4,000, with about the same number of dailies. France 1,568 Parisian Journals, and 2,500 in the provinces. Italy 1.400, 400 of which are in Home, 140 in Milan and 120 in Naples. Austria, 1,200; Spain, 850; Kussia 800; Switzerland 430, and Belgium and Holland, 300 each. Asia, 3,000, and America. 12.500. Upon dailies, America leads both England and Germany, issuing 1,000 eery day. Ne groes publish about 120. Only think of the vast aggregate of talent, pencils, paper, type, labor, and last,Ibut by no means least, money required to accomplish all this.

Uncle Sam's family want to look a little out Young society men are anxious to know where they grow the acres and acres of red roes the women aud girls have been wearing on their hats during the past sum mer and present fall. They are desirous to enter these Cwnnps Elysce and gather from their exhaustiess treasures the boquets w deli are imperatively demanded for their : x-ial campaigns during the coming winter. A society paper lately announced that the reason why society women were left alone at seaside resorts, and did not have more opportunities toward matrimony wherever they went, was because the de mands of society were so irksome to young men of moderate means that they could not be met That in the matter of flowers alone, a decent boquet composed of ten roses rated at the figure of one dollar per rose, and the question was asked: Ilow many ten-dollar boquets a season could be afforded by the young man earning, say, a salary of 575 per month? Which shall it be, husbands or roses? "Gath" seems to have been taking bis cue, of late, from writers of the Clara Belie school of iwpulority, and is minister ing, largely, to the prurient tastes of a class of readers who are always held by the sen sationally scandalous as birds by quicklime. Being a writer of such bulky and volumin ous capacity, it is not at all wonderful that he Is often compelled to fall back upon libraries of biogaphy; but it is to be regret ted that lie should pervert to questionable uses the Pauline philosophy of being "all tilings to all men," by seasoning facts with a spice which poisons. It is very evident that last Sunday's Gloiik-Kkpuiimc, containing Pimento's letter, must have missed connection and failed to reach the Atlantans at the proper time. For, if it had not we should see no dispatcher from that part of the world in which fears are expressed of its (the world's) speedy termination; since we ex plicitly stated our opinion and ahem! Proctor's that the end Is not yet I.et the Georgians do themselves no harm. The fact of Wiggins prediction ol an earthquake for the 29th is enough to dis courage the quake beforehand; as anything Wiggings foretells is so morally sure to show up as a failure. Pimesto. CUNNINCHAM BOUND OVER On the Charge or Itnpe Fined for Selling Coal 350 Poanuft Short. The principle case that came before Mayor Goodwin for trial yesterday after noon was that of John Cunningham, ar rested for rape on the thirteen-year-old girl, Mary Greyson. Cunningham, It will be remembered, plied the girl with whisky until she became beastly intoxicated, and then assaulted her and accomplished his purpose. The evidence against tho pris oner as presented by the witnesses exam ined was very conclusive, and George C. Itawlins, Esq., who represented Cunning ham, made but a nomiual defense. Cun ningham was bound over to court, and his bond fixed at S400. In default of anybody to go on His bond lie was remanded back to jail. John Jackson, a driver for Howard Hotch klss; was tried for selling coal under weight It was brought out In the testi mony that the particular ton (?) on which the affidavit was swom out, was 3.r0 pounds short Jackson was found guilty aud was fined S15 and costs. Henry C. Walters and Charles Jones were cached lined S'-S and costs for loitering about a house of ill-fame. Charles Ballini was given the usual one and costs for disorderly, and Tilman Goffe. arrested under the same charge, was dis missed.

Tho democrats of this district did their old policy-not-priuciple act in their conven tion last Tuesday by rndorslng McMillln, the people's candidate, for congress. Their game of "policy" was so apparent as to make them the laughing stock even of the partisans of the candidate whom they en dorsed. McMiliiu was a bitter pill for some of the old moss-back ed, rock-ribbed democrats from the back townships to swallow, but they were driven to take him with keen lashes from such horny-handed workiugmen as Charlie Constantine and J. B. AMI. The reason for the endorsement of McMillin Is plain. The democrats realized that with a candi date of their own in the field they would not stand the ghost of a chance of electing hi in, as McMillin would, particularly in this county, draw support from their party. While, even by endorsing McMillin, they had no hope of winning against "King Bob," they saw an opportunity to build for the future by posing as the laboring man's friend. Their scheme is, however, too ap parent to be of decided ad autage to them. That it was a clear case of anylhlng-to-win even their warmest friends can not honest ly deny. The idea of democrats in con vention assembled, tacking on their ticket as standard bearer a whilom re publican and a man who has alw ays and forever been fornlnst" their party and its principles and who does not now subscribe to a single essential article in their state platform, is peculiarly absurd, and even at this early date not a week since the con vention was held some of the more sensi ble of the democrats are beginuingto realise the foolishness of their course and to see that they have established a dangerous pre cedent It would have been, in every re spect a better move aud an exhibition of keener political acumen for them to have held no convention at ail, and allow ed af fairs in this district to take their own course. "Do you know," said a shoe-dealer to me the other day, "boots have almost entirely gone out ot fashion. A few years ago they were very popular. Now not one man in a hundred will wear them. This is probably due to the fact that shoes are much the cheaper. Good boots are costly, aud I am only stating a fact when I say that I could not make a really good ptir for less than 510. Old men whose daddies wore boots cling to tliein tenaciously, and it is only with great difficulty that they are persuaded to give them up. A boot in warm weather is an abomination. It not only causes the wearer much discomfort, but it U not a thing of beauty. Where I used to sell twenty pairs of boots 1 sell scarcely one now, and the call for them Is growing beautifully infrequent I notice that the present gen eration have much smaller feet than their ancestors, and they take great pains to keep them neatly covered. The boot pre cludes even a semblance of neatness or symmetry, Rnd in consequence it lias for some time been boycotted by young and dressy men." Theater managers not only in Springfield but all over the country, are earnestly pro testing against the "dead-head" system. Samuel Waldman, of Black's opera house, stated the other day that he, in common with many other theater managers, was positively in favor of abolishing the free- pass system Incontinently or at least, of restricting the issuance of "comps" to any but legitimate advertising mediums. One reason for this "kick" on the part of mana- agers is a general feeling of dissatisfaction with the demands made upon places of amusement by proprietors of windows wherein are exhibited lithographs and other advertisements ot current attractions. It appears that the tickets tiius procured for the privilege ot the use of shop-windows are in many Instances sold at much less than box-office rates, to the decided disadvantage jot the theaters issuing them. The evil has increased to so great an extent that managers, in self-protection, are considering the advisability of putting an end to it These window adver tisements are, after all, of but little benefit, as only a few people stop to look at them. Those who wish to attend the theaters can find all the information they desire regard- log them in the regular advertisements on the posters and in the newspapers, aud have long since ceased to have confidence in the misleading pictures that stare at them from shop-windows. The remedy is eutlreiy In the hands of the managers. They have only to resolve to adhere to the legitimate methods of advertising end the window ex tortion will have become a thing of the past "Pieaso don't publish" Is a legend that dally meets the reporter's gaze on public records. "Keep it out of the paper" is a cry that the editor of every local paper hears so often that he feels tempted to ring a chestnut gong on the crier. To ac cede to these daily requests I was just about to write demands means much more than the person making the request can possibly imagine, yet lie sometimes scarcely thinks It necessary to say "thank you" if the request is granted. A newspaper is a peculiar article In the eyes of the public A reiHirter is abused because he gets one item and Is given particular thunder because he does not get another. Young men. and too often young women, and not infrequently older people, do things which become legit imate items for publication, and then rush to the newspaper othVes to beg the editors not to notice their escapades. The very" next day they condemn the papers for not having published another party for doing the same thing of which they were guilty, apparently forgetting ail about their visit to the newspaper offices. The subscriber expects to find all the news in his paper, and he always wonders when, for charity's sake, an item which is In everybody's mouth is not found in the next issue of the paper. Perliais the first time the sub scriber meets the editor he "kicks" because the item was left out and, between me and the publiche has a right to kick. He purchases a paper expecting to find In its columns all legitimate news, and if it is not there he lias cause to object It is not pos sible for reiorterson any one paper to pick up every' little bit of go.sip that hapens to be afloat but the items I have referred, to are those well known and of general public interest A few days ago I heard a good joke on Senator Thomas J. Pringle which was told by Hon. George C. Itawlins. Senator Prin gle was one day called upon to defend, In the iwlice court, a man who had been ar rested for stealing chickens. The senator now thinks judging from subsequent events, that the fellow wa probably guilty, but he worked hard in the case and made an elo quent siieech and actually succeeded In se curing his client's dismissal. That very night the fellow went out to Senator Priu gle's house and stole his wedding coat, a gold watcii and some other articles. The senator uever defended the fellow again. A glance into either of the opera houses on the morning after a performance would Justify the belief that swine had dined In the hall the night before. The floor will be found littered with tobacco quids, orange rind", peanut shells, crumpled programmes, the whole forming a siiectacle which can be likened only to a picnic ground the day af ter a picnic One might suppose that the larger number of play-goers reserved their oranges, fieauuts and other edibles until they went to the play. Presently, no doubt this classof half-civilized beings will carry sand wiches to the theater and opening sardines and cove oysters while the performance is in progress. It Is a wonder that some of these people who can find time to eat only at the theater, don't take watermelons there and slice them up as the entertainment pio- ceeds, throwing the rinds at the performers on the stage. There Is no telling where this disgusting practice will end unless it is peremptorily stopped. Managers should put up a card of warning and then eject every person found eating peanuts in the bouse or squirting tobacco juice on the floor. Springfield is great in many respects, but It Is not great in streets. With its solid, substantial growth, with Its assured place among cities, it now needs nothing so much as paved streets. Every dollar expend d for the aving of the roadway of the city will be returned tenfold in the increased value of city property. The length and breadth of every' important street in Spring field should be paved. It would be money well expended. Let us have paved streets. As soon as the connections between the water works and the Merritt well are com pleted Springfield people will not at least for a few years, be agitated over a water famine The supply of pure water on the Merritt farm is practicaUy'inexhaustlble. In view of the Itoberts-Merritt Quaker wedding which occurred not many- days ago near South Charleston, it may be Interesting to know that in the Quaker So ciety divorce is almost unknown. No society throws about the marriage contract more solemnity and more of public recog nition. The ceremony begins a full month before It is completed by marriage. The young people have to announce in public their Intention of marriage. One month later they appear together in a public meet ing of the society and arise and say: "We. still continue our intentions of marriage." In the meantime wise advisers of the con tracting parties have fulfilled their duties, and when the final ceremony, which usually takes place some days afterward In public, occurs, the marriage is entered Into in the proper spirit A new way of purchasing clothes eco nomically was discovered by a Springfield youth who had an eye to business. He J asked a tailor the price of a suit from a certain piece of goods, and was told forty dollars. "How much for the trousers alone?" "Eleven dollars." He concluded to take only the trousers, but during the afternood lie dropped into the store again and asked the cost ot a vest It was 55, and lie ordered it Xext day lie won at base ball and thought he might as well get the coat too. He was told that the coat would cost him 520 and he was measured for it He now wears a forty dollar suit that cost him exactly 530, and is four good, hard dollars ahead. What makes a barber always Inquire, "Does the razor hurt you?1 He knows very well whether it titles or not. He U a better judge of a harp razor than you are. anyhow. DM you ever reply that the razor did hurt you? Do you not always say, 'Oh iS V Hlht,i!awinr -jstiiifr n-ft- t HUFFMAN & RICHTER, TAILORS INVITE INSPECTION. NEW FALL AND WHITER WOOLENS No. 31 East no, that's all right" You are momentarily flattered by the tone of kind solicitude with which the barber asks the question, and pleased with the consideration he shows for your feelings, and you would not tell him the razor was dull if it was nearly pulling your beard out by the roots. The barber who first asked that question asked It to cover up the atrocities of a dull razor. Other barbers copied it for they are an Imitative race, and the custom of propound ing the question has become general, as all customers know. The latest "gag" out is almost the peer of the chestnut bell In effectiveness. Yester day morning I was standing in a zroup of gentlemen at the Arcade station, and one of them began to tell some great cock-and-bull story about a trip he bad recently taken. Just as he reached a particularly incredible point in his narrative another member of the group drew from his vest pocket a plain white card, on which was printed this single line : "I am somewhat of a liar myself." He held the card so that it could be seen by the speaker and other members of the group. The story-teller went a.l to pieces and immediately led his companions to the nearest trough. "Why don't you turn over the district telegraph service," said a pro-nlneiit busi ness man to me, yesterday. "They are bHComing more and more careless every day. During the last three hours I have sent in three separate calls for a messenger and not one has yet put In an appearance. I had an important telegram that 1 wished to send and being alone in the office I could not leave Finally 1 was forced tn hire a boy to take it to tho office for me. This is not the only instance of the kind that might be cited. In fact instances of that kind are becoming so numerous that they demai.d attention." This !' not the first complaint of the servhe 'Jiat I have heard, and it behooves the n-jnager to remedy the trouble alluded to. Max. Salvation Oil, the celebrated American remedy, is guaranteed to cure rheumatism, sore throat swellings, bruises, bums and frosi-bites. Price enly twenty-five cents a bottle. The Boston iienihl asserts positively that George J. Gould and Edith Kingilon- were quietly married In Loudon about two months prior to the home wedding, and that the first union was the direct result of Mamma Kingaon's diplomacy.
