Mn.. Editoh The Pro-ident has
several tjmeo during the past. week.
driven otit to his recently purchased
summer residence upon the Tenally
town road, and on Wednesday he sat
upon the broad front veranda for
mora than an hour and enjoyed the
magnificent view whieli is obtained
from tliis point.
It is generally conceded that -in
nothing that Mr. Cleveland has done
since he became President, has he
shown- greater good sense than in the
purchase of this estate. The place
has long been known as "Pretty Pros
pect," arid it was rightly named. The
locality is qttilc an aristocratic one
Near by is "Woodley," which was for.
merly the home of Philip Barton Key.

eer Henderson, of-tho 17. S. Navy,
while a short distance to the west
ward io "Grassland," tlie country seat
of Secretary Whitney, and upon the
opposite side of the road is the estate
of the Georgetown College.
Not only has the Presidsnt secured
a delightful summer residence, at a
sufficient distance from the city to
enable him to pass the summer
months in comparative freedom from
the cares and worries incident to a
life in the While House, and at the
same time near enough to insure his
presence on short notice if occasion'
demanded, but at the sairie time his
invest rh'erit is likely to prove a very
profitable one. .Massachusetts avenue,
which is soon to be extended, will
reach very near the estate, and a de
lightful drive of one and a half miles
will then separate it from the White
.Every indication about the White
House for some time past, has been
such as to point to a social crisis of
some kind, and the fact thai tlip Pres
ident's, wedding was to take place :u
June has been generally accepted.
Newspaper correspondents have fath
oined every possible source of inform
ation, ia hopes of ascertaining the cx
ac. date of the occurrence, and having
failed, they had re.-olved themselves
into a sort of self-constituted commit
tee of arrangement?; and viftiially
settled the question in their own
minds. By unanimous decision of
the aforesaid committee, the date was
set upon June 19th, and the ceremony
was to" take place in New York City.
Everything having thus beeii settled,
excepting perhaps come of the minor
details, tfic official announcement,
which was made on Saturday morn
ing, to the effect that the wedding
would take place in the Blue Boom
of the White House, on Wednesday
evening, June 2nd, created a sensa
tion not only among nespaper men
but tlie general public, such as has
been seldom equaled. The arrange
ments will be of tho simplest order.
The President will go to New York
to-day and will participate in the
Deeoratioii Day observances, and will
return on Tuesday in company with
Miss Folsom and members of her fam
ily. The ceremon- will take place at 7
o'clock in the eveniug, and will be
followed by a wedding supper in the
Stale dining room.
Probably no bill that lias been dis
cussed during the present session of
Congress has excited a more general
and hearty interest, both among the
members themselves and the general
public, thau Ins the bill which im
poses iv tax of ten cents per pound on
oleomargarine and other substitutes
for butter, and making the Interual
Revenue Bureau responsible for tlie
collection of tlie tax. The bill won a
place upon the calendar on Mouday,
arid the de'jate was opened by Messrs.
W. L. Scott, of Pennsylvania, and Mr.
Uokins, of Illinois, both of whom
spoke in favor of the bill. They main
tained that so great had the industry
grown that the dairymen of the coun
try who are engaged in the manufac
ture of butter from milk alone, can
ik t long survive the competition oE
the oleomargarine makers, and that
the tax is proposed as a metliod of le
strietiug the manufacture of an un
wholesome product. The opponents
of tlie bill insist that the bill is un
constitutional upon the ground that,
it is. an attempt to regulate matiufao
tures, by protecting one class at the
expense of others. The sentiment ol
the House is, however, overwhelming
ly in favor of the bill, which will
doubt'ess' become a law if a rotcis
secured upon it.
In accordance' with tlie usual cus
tom the President issued an executive
order closing the several Executive
Department's oh the 31st inst., to en
able tile employes to participate in
tlie decoration of the graves of soldiers
who fell during the rebellion. A very
large majority of the clerks will, how
ever, avail themselves of th(runu,ual
low excursion rates which arc being
offered by the railroad companies to
Harper's Ferry, Pen! if Mar, Luray
Caverns and other points of interest.

From Charlie Leach, foreman of
tlie Grand Central mine, The Tomb
stone learns that the caving at the
mine nas about ceased. At the-time
of the lire the cage caught somewhere
in the vicinity of the 300-foot level;
on t'ais fell the debris from the burn
ing hoist, and since that the caved
ground, with this as a foundation, has
tilled the ihaftupto within ab'ottt
twenty feet of the mouth';
No effort has been made to enter
the mine since the almost fatal at
tempt last week, and it will probably
be several weeks yet before explora
tions can be attempted with safety.
Superintendent Gage, who arrived
last eveniug from the East, was to

the insurance companies from Cali

Gage's selection is made here, the
work will probably begin to-fnbrrow'.
If he detei mines to send to Califor

delayed soms days. As to the luturc

Reputations Depend.
No class of professional men are so
.susceptible of prbfesiotia! jealousy as
doctors. When an invalid calls in a
certain doctor, he must be content to
abide by his advice, unless he can
afford the expensive luxury of a con
sulfation, y;hero a dozen or more of
tlie piofessioii put their heads to
gether aiid sit upon his case. The
assuring comfort of a word of advice
from a single physician, without the
consent of a regularly employed
medico, is denied .him. It would bo
unprofessional, and though the out
sider may intimate by nods, slnugs,
exclamations, groans, and pve.i in
definite profanity that the other
doctor is-dosing his patient o death,
he will not commie himself to an a -sertion
of that, fact toT the patient.
A ICearny-street storekeeper, a man
who makes hi3 own wares and sella
them, was laid up the other day with
a badly swollen leg, occasioned by
undue indulgence iri the Highland
fling at the Caledonia picnic. He
called in liis family physician, who
prescribed a lotion. "Bat tho more
vigorously the patient rubbed in the
lotion, the more the swelling increas
ed and the other leg, through sym
pathy, began to exhibit an abnormal
dv-elopment. The sick man was
badly scared. His faith in the physi
cian's skill was wnakeued. Ho re
solved to consult another doctor on
the aly.
"Hump! what have you b'ceii doing
for th'ia?" asked the second scientist.
"Nothing, doctor; nothing," re
plied the patient, glancing nervously
around to see that no trace of tho
first adviser's medicine was visible.
Number two wrote a prescription and
departed. Hopefully tho patient ap
plied it; but, to his horror, die legs
were larger than ever tlie iidxl iftorn- j

"Henry," he .-aid to his son, "I'll

Now I'll assign Doctor A. to the right

we'll time 'em, Henry, so that B
don't get in a spoonful more lotion on

one secoric's more rubbing. Give me

Being of a sporting turn, the sick
man infolmed the sympathetic friends
who visited him of the nature of the
trial, and the pools sold like wildfire,
the patieut claiming only a small per
centage in the form of bottled ale on
the bets.
"I won't put up a cent on either
leg, or you fellows might think I
wasn't handling the legs fair," he
said. "Measure 'em, Henry." The
tape showed a decline of a quarter
inch in the circumference of the light
leg, and Dr. A. went up at orice in tlie
pools and was a strong favorite during
tlie rest of the day. But when on
(lie evening measurement the left leg
had not only offset that quarter inch,
but had dropped a quarter on its own
account, the betting was ten to four
on Dr. B. with few takers. The con
test will not be decided before tho end
of the week. A bulletin board posted
at the head of the patient's bed gives
the latest measurement quotations
and tlie re'eord of the betting. A
large sum will change I'ands on the
rosult. though the disponition of the
early bookmakers to hedge. both ways
is very apparent. S. 1' . Call.

The press report brings a tw.!-col-ilinn
account of the President's wed
ding. The only item of interest in
the report is one that affects the fem
inine portion of the community,
namely, a description of tho bridts'
costume, which was as follows ;
"The bride wore an enchanting
wedding dress of ivory satiu, simply
garnished on a high corsage with
India muslin cressed in Grecian folds
and carried in exquisite falls over the
petticoats; The orango blossom gar
niture coniniencing upon the veil iif
a superb coronet, is continued
throughout the costume with artistic
skill. Her ve'ri of tulle, abodt five'
yards in length, completely enveloped
her, falling to the -edge of h-T petti
coat in fr.mt and extending the entire
length of her -full'- court train. Sue
carried no flowers and wore no jewel
ry, except .an engagement ring, con
taining a sapphire and two diamonds
atid a plain wadding ring, which had
bjen pl.wed on her linger before she
descended the staircase."
Apaches .Tnmp Jimmy Carr's
Ranch in tlie 23nacliuc:i9.
Pat Maloney, who has a ranch at
tho southwest end of the Huachucas,
arrived in camp this afternoon, and
states that while passing through
Charleston a messenger arrived from
Jimmy Carr's horse ranch," on the
west side of the Huachucas at the
mouth of Hayea and Tanner's Pass
with the" news that the Apaches
jumped the ranch this morning and
killed a man. They also it is thought
ran off som? stock'. Thcro were two
men named Malone and Cole in
charge of the stock, and tba report
would indicate it was one of the tivo;
but which' is no't known. TKa ms

stated a party was made tip" to go' to
