THREE KEGS OF BEER.
Michuel Lynch and Tom Lavalle
Badly Hurl Over Them.
As the result of a free-for-all fight on the
/tate street flats last night, Mike Lynch Is
laid up at the city hospital, with a broken
head, and John Mason and Tom Larkln are
locked up at the Ducan street station on
the charge of disorderly conduct. A more
serious charge may be lodged against Lar
kin, as he is said to have assaulted one of
the participants in the row, Tom Lavalle,
with a knife. Lavalle has been spirited
away by Larkin's friends, and it is not
known how seriously he was injured. The
trouble seems to have arisen from the ef
forts of a coterie of the "flatters" to get
away with the contents of three kegs of
beer.
The amber fluid found Its way to the flats
about 6 o'clock in the evening, and by 10
o'clock the entire party was looking for
trouble. It was not long in coming. Lynch
made a remak to which Mason objected, and
the "shindy" was on in a minute. Larkin
got mixed up with Lavalle, and the rest of
the crowd began pummeling each other until
a dozen different fights were going on at the
same time
Mason got Lynch down and literally jump
ed on him with both feet. He kicked him
about the body, and 'then went for his head.
Mason had on heavy shoes, and when he
got through with his adversary the latter
looked as if he bad been up against a Kansas
cyclone.
In the meantime Larkin had been getting
the worst of it in his encounter with Lavalle,
and is said to have pulled a knife and seri
ously cut his antagonist.
The melee had reached its height when Of
flrer Ryder appeared on tht scene and inter
rupted the belligerents. All who were able
made their escape, but Mason fell into the
tolls, ana Lynch lay insensible on the ground.
Larkin was captured at his home about 11
o'clock, though no trace could be found of
Lavalle.

TRUE TO HIS OflTfl
REV. J. F. STOUT'S REQUIREMENT
OF A CANDIDATE FOR PUB
LIC OFFICE.
CHRIST AND PUBLIC ETHICS
THE TOPIC OF A VIGOROUS SERMON
PREACHED AT THE FIRST
H. E. CHURCH.
LAWS ARE NOT CURIOSITIES.
They Were Put on the Statute
Books to Be Enforced, He
Argrues.
Rev. J. Frank Stout, pastor of First M. E.
church, preached a sermon last evening on
"Christ and Public Ethics." Text, Matthew
xxli.,-21: "Render, therefore, unto Ceasar the
things that are Caesar's and to God the things
that are God's."
The topic of the evening may seem a little
peculiar when the method of treatment ap
pears. We must remember that Jesus has
said very few words concerning the specific
duties growing out of life's relations. It
seems to be His method to plant in the human
heart seeds of truth of such vital power that
in their healthful growth the believer shall
see for himself his specific obligation. It is
not our purpose to call your attention to a
multitude of texts on the question of the
hour, but rather make clear the one seed
truth which Christ has given out, in which
enlightened conscience reveals to us most
clearly our obligation in the sphere of
"Public Ethics." Indeed, the text with its
context, is the only deliverance on the
general topic that has come down to us, and
this seems to have been delivered under pro
test, as though intelligent men should see,
from their relation to truth and justice, what
should be done in any given instance. We
have quoted the text to call your attention
to the topic, "Christ and Public Ethics."
The general proposition on which the whole
discussion rests is this: Jesus Christ rec
ognizes everywhere the individual citizens as
an integral part of the state, and as the ob
ject in the interest of whom the state exists.
This may seem almost a truism, but it stands
opposite the practice of nearly all human
governments. In the centuries in which
government has been unfolding, the practice
has been to consider the individual not at
all as such, but rather to deal with the
classes and masses; the masses existing for
the benefit of the classes, all the way up to
the throne. It does not seem to have dawn
ed on the minds of the classes that governors
are in their place to serve the people, but
rather to have the people serve them. Under
this systm have come the revolutions, and
crimes of history, which have been pro
tests against an unnatural and unholy sys
tem of government. Against this Christ pro
tests and introduces a new order. It is His
purpose as well to give to the world liberty
and justice, as to save individual souls from
sin and death. That He does so teach is
shown from the following considerations:
1. Christ's mission was to individuals. The
Jews could not make of Him a national de
liverer; ecclesiastics could not transform Him
into a church reformer; He dealt not with
nations or governments, but persons, and
everywhere refused to recognize one as of
more value than another. It was to the in
dividual He came and taught, and died and
rose.
2. Christ's sympathy was plainly with the
common people, because they had very little
elsewhere. Over their condition He wept, to
their burdens He bared His back, and for
their salvation He gave himself to death.
Not once do we find Him considering any
man more than another, because of the ac
cidents of rank or wealth, the man, whoever
he was, who needed Him could command Him,
but only because He was a brother man. He
loved not races,but people.and so taught that
the crowds were astonished at His doctrine
and at His independence In following His own
method of work, so different from that of
the scribes.
3. Christ denounced in no measured terms
the enemies of the individual, not because
they were scribes, pharlsees, priests or rulers,
but because they oppressed the poor, devour
ed widows' houses, scorned justice and the
weightier matters of the law; in a word, re
fused In their greed to recognize the rights
of the individual. For these reasons Jesus
spoke such denounciations as made their
hearts to melt within them.
4. The plain words of Jesus, among which
is the following passage, declaro the individ
ual is the object of care, Mark ix., 42- "And
whosoever shall offend one of these little
ones that believe in Me, it is better for him
that a millstone were hanged about his neck
and he were cast into the sea,"
No one can read the gospels without feeling
that, as a basis to all other teaching, Jesus
holds the Individual as the object of Divine
affection and care, and commends him as
certainly to the care of all who will deny the
selfish spirit of this world and follow Him
It seems natural, if this be true, to state
the following principles defining our relation
to government or public ethics:
First—The citizen is amenable to law and
should obey it. There is only one excep
tion, and that is stated by Peter to the coun
cil which tried to silence his lips from giving
testimony. The same answer can still be
given to him who is under a higher law of
conscience, and finds himself in conflict with
law, which interferes with that which he
clearly feels to be his duty. "We ought to
obey God rather than man." So says Peter,
so says the Christian. This, however, Is the
only exception, and outside of this limitation
he must obey, for this belongs to Caesar, he
owes it to the government.
Second—The enforcement of law is as much
a duty as obedience to it Law is the ex
pression of the public opinion or conviction
on human rights and privileges. It is oper
ative when, by the established methods, pub
lic conviction Is expressed by men elected for
that purpose by majorities of the citizens,
and so is placed on the statute books as a rule
of government. It is not entered as a curios
ity, nor yet as a campaign expression, but Is
presumably the will of the majority for the
public good, and Its obedience is supposedly
necessary to the good of the governed, that
is implied In the passing of the law. Its en
forcement Is provided for by demanding of
officials, who take the oath of office, that they
shall swear that they will enforce the laws
which are the expression of public will. It
is supposed that these men are honest and
candid men, and will be true to their oath
and to themselves, and enforce the laws.
That we may clearly see the practical work
before us, it is well that we give the follow
ing classification of law: We may divide it
into, first, laws for the protection of prop
erty; second, that have to do with the pro
tection of individual rights, and these latter
have to do, for the most part, with public
morals. There is comparatively little diffi
culty with reference to the enforcement of
those of the first class, but there is every
obstacle placed In the way of enforcing those
In the second class. In this case there are
classes of men who are purveyors to vice,
who prey on the public, and have so gained
a footing that there are vast moneyed inter
ests at stake, and they do their utmost to sea
that by their influence, the laws that repre
sent the convictions of the majority shall be
unenforced, through the will of the minority.
It is the plain duty, from a Christian stand
point, to see that the individual whom the
right-minded majority declares shall be pro
tected from these human harpies shall be
protected, and any other view Is heresy to
good views of government, and brands him
who asserts It as untrue to the (Spirit of
Christ. ' ' *- -~i-

question of right. His great criticism of His
age was that it practically ignored righteous
ness and placed stress on the exactions of
human tradition. Public ethics is as neces
sary as the morals of the individual, and is
the result of the standard of righteousness
in the units that make up the whole. If we
are left in doubt on any question, we may
rest assured that, so far as we have gone in
this discussion, we have expressed the spirit
of Christ On His platform there Is a call
for a standard of righteousness and a recog
nition, in enforcing it, of the individual who
aggregately makes up the state and whose
ward he is.
SERMON ON CONTENTMENT.
Some of the Thoughts of Rev. Dr.
Egbert.
Rev. John Paul Egbert preached yesterday
morning on the subject of "Contentment."
"Never was there a more discontented age,"
he said. "Discontentment is brewing trouble
on all sides. From result it becomes a cause
and begets a habit that will not accept peace.
That which demands of God cannot come into
harmony with Him and receive His gifts.
There is a disposition in discontented minds
and spirits to make it appear that God has
not given us what we are entitled to. Some
go through life with growing discontent that
Ik unmanning us and crippling our lives. I
believe that back of all is the selfishness
which has so materialized life that the am
bition is not for gifts of God, but for things
of the world. Haven't we a greater desire to
get contentment of condition than to become
contented by being Christ-like?
"We can let a circumstance annoy us, or, as
the oyster does with the sand, turn it into a
| pearl. Out of sorrow, through suffering, Paul
| became the greater apostle. Would Dante
I have been the poet he was, had it not been
I for exile, loneliness and sorrow? No, it is
not comfortable conditions, but true life, that
brings contentment."
He compared the contentment of the Stoic
with that of the Christian. "The Stoic," he
said, "kills all desire; the Christian believes
that desire is not to be killed, but that high
desires are to take the place of ignoble ones.
"So long as there is a lack of absolute cer
tainty of a future life, so long will there be
discontentment with this life."
He spoke of the discontentment that comes
fiom thinking we must understand all the
mysteries of life. "If we understood God per
fectly we would lose all reverence for Him.
If we ask for perfect plainness we ask to be
lowered. Where would be our helpfulness to
each other? Uncertainties bind us together"
With reference to discontentment, caused by
scrrow, he said that grief itself is the testi
mony of love, and gave the three roots of
contentment as faith, hope and love.
DISTORTED IDEAS OF GOD.
To Change Theae Christ Came Into
the World.
Another theme of interest was presented
last night, at the Wacouta Street chapel, by
Pastor 11. F. Phelps.
"Misrepresentation is an evil," said the
speaker. "It is a sin. It has ever been the
purpose of the archdeceiver to misrepresent
God in this world. Therefore, man has dis
torted ideas of God. It was the mission of
Christ to _ represent the Father before the
world in "His true character as a God of
love; as being love itself. And representing
God as He truly is, and thus draw Men
toward Him, uniting humanity with the in
finite. In order to do this, Christ took hu
manity upon Himself, became one of us,
the son of man. Christ lived as a man among
men, overcoming at every step. He was put
to death as a man; was buried as a man;
was raised as man, the son of man, and
ascended to heaven as the son of man; and
now sits at the right hand of God in heaven,
thus uniting man to the throne of God.
"As Christ represented God before the
world, and in the world, so it is the privilege
of the church to represent Christ to the
world. This is the work of the church. It
was for this purpose that the church was or
ganized. It is the work of the individual
members of the church to show to the world
that God is love. And when the world can
see Christ represented in His professed fol
lowers, this will do more to evangelize and
draw men to the church than all the schemes
that men can devise.
"This then, is the question of importance:
How to represent Christ? Will it be by
worldly methods? Can the church reform the
world by the use of carnal weapons? Can
she do it by appealing from the gospel of
Jesus Christ to the arm of Caesar? If this
be so '.t is a terrible confession upon the
part 01 the church of her misapprehensions
of the teachings of that One who spake as
never man spake. A confession that the
church has the form of godliness J>ut is
wanting in the spirituality of Christianity
itself and its power. With the power of the
spirit of God, the church needs not the power
of Caesar.

MAYJS FIRST SUNDAY.
An Ideal Day Except for the High
Wind.
The first Sabbath in May was ideal in its
I arrangements except for a high wind, which
made it unpleasant for wheelmen and pedes
trians. The zephyrs occasionally became too
familiar with skirts and bonnets, but for all
that it was a beautiful day. The wind waa
strongest during the afternoon, and turned
its attention especially to places where
the idler and pleasure-seeker were trying to
have a moment's freedom from care and
trouble. For instance, the asphalted streets,
favorite places for the bicycler, were swept
| with altogether too much zeal and persist
ency by the wind, which had force enough
to carry coasters along smoothly, but for
those going against it, oh, my; that was dif
ferent. It made wheelmen hump and hump,
and use far more strength than they would
on three ordinary working days. For those
out driving, the wind had but few friends,
for it required too much attention to keep the
trimmings in place to make the drive
thoroughly enjoyable.
However, the sun was bright and coaxing,
and the air was delicious with the odors of
budding summer. Thousands of people bask
ed out of doors, and visited the parks and
lakes.
Charles Marvin Dead.
Charles Marvin, a resident of Garden City,
MJnn., died at St. Luke's hospital yesterday
morning. Mr. Marvin, who was 32 years old,
was a victim of Bright's disease, for which
he had been receiving treatment at the hos
pital for the past five months. His father,
J. C. Marvin, was with him at the time of
his death. The remains will be taken to Gar
den City for burial today.

ORCHARD PLANTING ENCOURAGED
By Liberal Moneys Huns Up by the
State Fair—Florists Not For
gotten.
The exhibit of fruits and flowers at annual
fairs is becoming a very prominent feature,
and is receiving each year more notice from
the sight-seeing public and an appreciative
press. Last year was a very unfortunate
one for the Minnesota orchardist on account
of an extraordinarily late spring frost and
the drought of that and the preceding years;
but, in spite of these drawbacks, the three
long tables and world's fair booth adjoining
were filled as never before, and a large sur
plus of fruit could not be displayed at all on
account of lack of space. While the aver
age size of the speci&ens shown were hardly
up to the maximum, on account of the lack
of moisture in the soil, they were still so
large and showy as to provoke general com
ment. Several engravings of this exhibit,
which were published in the Minnesota Hor
ticulturist, the monthly organ of the Minne
sota State Horticultural society, under whose
auspices the horticultural exhibit is made,
were widely noticed and solicited for re
production in various horticultural publica
tions throughout the country.
With such an attractive show under such
unfavorable conditions, there Is every rea
son to expect the t-omlng season an exhibit
of which the state may be proud, as showing
that Minnesota is rapidly taking rank as a
fruit-growing state. The apple crop four
year* ago was estimated at 250,000 bushels,
and if the prospects now fairly in sight are
realized It is not extravagant to expect an
increase of several times that amount.
Upwards of 200 .varieties of apples alone,
including seedlings," were shown at the last
fair, and at the annual winter meeting of the
horticultural society, held in this city in
December last, 118 named varieties, besides a
large number of seedlings,were on the tables.
Of course, the commercial growers confine
themselves to a few varieties, the Duchess
of Oldenburg and Wealthy furnishing the
bulk of the crop. Sfiveral of the Russian va
rieties, and new seedlings grown from seed
of the Duchess of Oldenburg, are considera
bly grown, and in the seedlings, especially,
great confidence is felt as certain to place
apple growing in our state on a safe basis.
The farmers generally are greatly inter
ested in orchard planting, and only need
reasonable assurance to be induced to plant
largely. The sales from the local nurseries
this spring indicate a growing confidence in
this industry, which, with reasonable care
on the part of the planters, need not result
in disappointment. This state is fortunate in
having one of the most active state horticult
ural societies in America, Although only
29 years old, it is second to none in size, has
a fine library, and publishes its reports in
the form of a monthly magazine, which is
sent gratuitously to all its members. Every
person growing fruit in Minnesota, or con
templating doing so, should, by all means,
put himself in communication with this so-
ciety by addressing the secretary! A. W.
Latham, 207 Kasota block, Minneapolis, and
at least secure the fruit list published by
the society as a guide to planters in the se
lection of varieties.
This society is a large factor in the devel
opment of fruit growing in these parts, dis
seminating the reliable information collected
through its members, and infusing a general
feeling of confidence in their late movement
in the direction of tree planting, which is
fraught with so much importance to our
state.
The state fair management Is fully In touch
with the general sentiment as to fruit-grow
ing Interests, and manifests It by an increase
in the amount of premiums allotted to this
department at the coming fair, as will be
apparent to those familiar with previous lists
by an investigation of the list which follows.
As a result, a much larger exhibit of fruits
and flowers at the next fair, Aug. 31 to Sept
5, than usual, may be expected, and one that
will do much toward the further development
of the horticultural Interests of the state.
In the class for apples, the premiums for
best collection, hybrids and Siberians ex
cepted, are: First, $25; second, $20; third,
$15; fourth, $10; ftf^h, ,S5.

LABOR'S MAY DAY.
Socialist Labor Party's Local Cele-
bration YeMterday.
May day exercises were held at Labor hall
yesterday afternoon,under the auspices of the
American section of the Socialists' Labor
party. The speakers of the occasion were
Thomas H. Lucas, of Minneapolis; W. B.
Hammond, secretary of the State Federation
of Labor, and Edward Peterson.
The audience was small, but the dis
crepancy in numbers did not in any way
detract from the enthusiasm with which the
several speakers were received. H. E. Beach,
organizer of the Socialists' Labor party, who
presided over the meeting, opened the ex
ercises with an address of welcome and an
explanation of the institution of "May day."
Mr. Lucas delivered a lengthy talk upon the
oppression to which the laborer had been
subjected, going into history to prove that
the land was once owned by the people, and
tracing its gradual usurpation to the present
day, when the original and rightful owners
were, in his opinion, the slaves of the usurp
ers. Every natural right had been wrested
from the people by fraud, trickery and force,
until they found themselves in abject slav
ery, cringing at the feet of a powerful mas
ter, begging for the necessaries of life. The
time for this condition of affairs to cease,
the speaker declared, had come, and the
Socialists' Labor party had championed the
cause of the oppressed. It wa3 a political
institution, and should enlist not only the
sympathy, but also the thoughtful and ear
nest co-operation of every wage earner in
the land. The ballot and education were
the only hope of the laborer, who should by
means of the one learn to intelligently use
the other, than which no more powerful
weapon existed for bloodless restitution. W.
B. Hammond ia general confined his remarks
to trades unions. He argued that they had
originally been of use, but declared that they
had lost their potency. They never were
intended, nor destined, in the opinion of
Mr. Hammond, to solve the labor problem,
but were only instituted as a temporary
measure. Trades unions were incapacitated
by the progress of invention, and to secure
for the workingman the full value of his
labor, the mighty ballot must be utilized.
The old method of strikes and boycotts should
be relegated, in the light of the present con
ditions, and methods adequate to the times
brought into service.
In speaking upon the "Pending Municipal
Election," Mr. Peterson outlined his views of
the situation, but left the choice of candidates
with his auditors, declining to express him
self favorable or opposed to auy party,
though closing his remarks with an ardent
appeal for enlistment in the ranks of the So
cialists' Labor party in the future.

CONCERT AND BALL.
Stein's Second Regiment Band at
Mozart Hall.
Stein's Second Regiment band rendered a
popular concert of eight numbers to a small
but appreciative audience at Mozart hall last
evening. The members of the band wore their
new uniforms for the first time, and as they
discoursed the well prepared programme, pre
sented an appearance not excelled by any
similar organization in the city.
Though the small audience was not calculat
ed to great inspiration, the fact detracted
nothing from the artistic and finished man
ner in which the programme was rendered.
The feature of the evening was the cornet
playing of A. E. Pankopf. who rendered the
Arbuclenian Polka in so accomplished a man
ner as to call forth several hearty encores.
Bach's "Jubel Overture," as the opening
number, by the full band, prepared the au
dience for an evening of musical pleasure of
a high order. A selection from Boccaccio pre
ceded the solo work of Mr. Pankopf, which
was followed by "The Soldier's Life Tattoo,"
in which each member of the band followed
Leader Stein's baton with a precision which
gave the martial air an added merit, appre
ciated by the audience.
The latter half of the programme was of a
lighter order, consisting of a potpourri by
Kiesler, "The Danube Waves" waltz; "The
College Overture," a medley of college airs,
and for a concluding number, "Brudder Gard
ner's Picnic," each of which was rendered to
the satisfaction of the audience.
At the conclusion of the concert the floor
was cleared, and those present enjoyed a
select dance programme by the full band of
twenty pieces.

DROWNED WHILE FISHING.
Allan Herllng, Aged 12, Falls From
a Boom.
Allan Herllng, the twelve-year-old son of
Theodore Herllng, an expressman, living at
19 West Fairfleld avenue, was drowned in
the Mississippi, above the Wabasha street
bridge, yesterday morning.
The boy, in company with younger brother,
was fishing from & bark boom opposite the
upper island, when he lost his balance and
fell into the water.
Owing to the high water, the current is
very swift at the point where the accident j
occurred, and young Herling was quickly j
carried down stream. He could swim some.
and while his brother ran for aid, struggled i
hard to keep himself afloat. Fear had seized |
the lad, however, and instead of trying to
reach the shore he expended his efforta in
a vain attempt to swim against the current
to the boom from which he had fallen. Had
he endeavored to reach the shore he would
have undoubtedly been saved, as it was but
a short distance to shallow water. When
his brother returned with two men from a !
neighboring house a boat put out to the point j
wh6re the drowing boy was just seen to go
down. As the boat neared the spot the boy
came to the surface, but was too far away to
be secured. With a gurgling cry the little fel
low sank for the last time, within an oar's j
length of the boat. Efforts were immediately
made to recover the body, but it had not
been found last evening.

GEfl. WALKER'S IDEA
THE G. A. R. COMMANDER DRIVES
OVER THE PROPOSED LI.\E
OF MARCH.
SUGGESTS A FEW CHANGES.
THINKS THE PARADE SHOULD
START AT SUMMIT AND WEST
ERN AVENUES.
REVIEWING STAND IN SMITH PARK
Sixth Street Should Be Repaved, In
Hla Opinion, ttt Certain
Places.
Gen. Ivan Walker, the commander-in-chief
of the Grand Army of the Republic, arrived
in St. Paul yesterday morning, on his way
from the Pacific coast to Indianapolis. Gen.
Walker was accompanied by his wife and by
his chief of staff. H. S. Dietrich, of "Chi
cago; Mrs. Dietrich and Miss Dietrich.
Albert Scheffer took the distinguished visi
tors out for a drive during the afternoon. The
party visited Fort Snelling, where they were
cordially received by Col. Page. Upon the
return trip the visitors drove over the pro
posed line of march arranged for the coming
encampment. As a result, some changes
were suggested by Commander Walker,which
will undoubtedly be adopted. Instead of
forming at Dayton and Western avenues, the
procession will form at the juncture of Sum
mit avenue and Western avenue. Command
er Walker also suggested that the reviewing
stand be placed in Smith park, instead of in
front of the postofflce.
"In riding over the ground today," said
Commander Walker, "I became Impressed
with the necessity of extending the G. A. R.
parade territory, so as to make it include the
business district. Therefore, instead of prac
tically breaking ujj the parade by erecting a
reviewing stand at Rice park. I am in favor
of erecting the reviewing stand at Smith
park, so that the old soldiers may march
through the business district of the city.
"And I might add, as a word of advice to
St. Paul, that it should repave Sixth street,
bf-tween College and Summit avenues, anil
between Sibley and Rosabel streets, before
the encampment. The indications, so far as
I can Judge, from the spirit revealed at the
various state encampments, are that the na
tional encampment will be largely attended."
Commander Walker left for Indianapolis
last night. During his recent trip to the
ccast he visited the annual state encamp
mtnt of California, at Santa Cruz, and local
G. A. R. posts entertained him at Portland,
Seattle and Helena.
KELLY BROS. & .loillUV.
Probable New Style of a Reor
ganized Mercantile Company.
W. B. Jordan, assignee of the P. H. Kelly
I Merchantile company, said last evening that
the company would doubtless be reorganized
■within a few weeks, as Kelly Bros. & Jordan. !
"The work of reorganization," continued
Mr. Jordan, "had really begun about two
■weeks ago, when I left on a ten days' trip
to Miles City. Since then the matter has
been allowed to remain In about the same
situation. But now that I've got bark we'll
take the details up again, and I think a
definite programme of reorganization can ba
arranged before the end of May or, at least,
very early In June. In the meantime, the
business of the company is«going on as usual.
We've sent our traveling men out, and things
are moving much as they were before the
assignment was made. I think that our
prospects and present condition are such now
as to warrant a reorganization that will
continue the company's business on terms
favorable to the stockholders and the credi
tors alike."

TALL BEAUTIES.
Six-Feet Womem Who Are Attractive
in Form. Face and Character.
Philadelphia Times.
Women seem to be on the increase,
not numerically, be it said, but physic
ally. They are all so tall that beside
them many men seem pigmies. Many
of the well-known beautk-s are tall.
Among those of English birth there Is
the Duchess of Portland. She is nearly
six feet high. Then there is Lady "Wol
verton, daughter of Georgina, Countess
of Dudley. Both mother and daughter
are but a hair's breadth beneath the six
foot measurement. Then there is the
Duchess of Newcastle, Lady Francis
Hope's (May Yohe's) sister-in-law; she
is also a daughter of Anak. And the
I daughters of Lord Londesborough are
"more than common tall." •
Then, of course, the newest duchess
of Marlborough is very "long drawn
out," while the "Lily Duchess" of Marl
borough Is far beyond medium height.
This "advanced" state of things being
the case in feminine ranks, low-heeled !
shoes now occupy a recognized place in
good society, and have figured at sev
< eral great weddings.
The two principal brides of the pass
! ing year have been much taller than
i their bridegrooms, and their ordinary
high heels are therefore, renounced for i
a while, so that the difference in statue
may not appear too remarkable. In
such instances a low coiffure is consid- ,
ered a delicate mark of attention from I
the bride, and it is retained several '
'months until other conspicuous couples I
arise and claim public attention.
A very beautiful and most divinely
tall woman Is Miss Julia Neilson, the
English actress. Miss Neilson measures
about five feet eight or nine inches, but
so perfect is her figure and so graceful
her movements that she seems not an
inch too tall. She is the wife of Mr
Fred Terry, a younger brother of Miss

A Home Indorsement.
Boston Herald.
Gov. Russell's strong points come into best
e>ercise as a candidate for the presidency.
He is emphatically an orator, and he is al
ways ready to speak the needed word of ap
| peal to his followers. He has made singular-
I ly few mistakes for one of his youth. We do
I not remember one move made by him as
| candidate for governor that was not discreet
! and sagacious. It will be remembered that
in his series of campaigns Massachusetts
he bad not only the support of the earnest
I and impulsive young men of th<? state, but
j that the old men placed confidence in his
j judgment. He was supported by the con
i scrvatlve class among the Republicans fully
j as much as by the more easily moved element.
j He has proved himself as reliable in this re
i spect in this stage of career as ever. In the
: test to which he is now being Subjected, as
j regards the currency, he has taken a position
entirely in accord with his previously demon
strated character. There is no whiffling, no
equivocation; on the contrary, there is th©
j promptest possible ranging of himself on the
! side of sound money In an entirely frank
1 avowal.
Here is a candidate rarely endowed with
o.ualitles to unite the Democratic party—elo
quence, enthusiasm, party devotion, signal
party service, sound judgment, well worn
: public confidents. Everything i.s here to con
tact to a spirited party campaign, if the
party itself wills it. There are not even
serious rivals to encounter. If the Demo
cratic party has the disposition to unite, here
are all the elements for efficient union pro-
I sented. Whether it has that disposition is,
! however, unfortunately for Itself, as yet aa
unsolved problem.
