THE LAST CABINET DAY.
Tin: i'kiday iinroni. Tin: siiooiino.
A' special forrcpjioiitlent of tho Philit
dulpliin. Times lit Washington writes as
lolkiWH, uniler (Into ot August Z2nd:
A lout; ri-sKloiico in nslmiirlon
proves tho nail faut that "court life" at
tlio capital of a mjmlilic is precisely tliu
sumo as in n monarchy, except in tho
ohango of its duratiun. As tho timo to
iceomplisli results is so very brief tho
odious process becomes more patent and
loss cam is lakon to hide all the art and
skill practiced by tho parasites who sur
round tho Executive and who chango
his nature in si very biief time unless,
like "Old Ilickoiy" or Abraham Lincoln,
lie cannot be veneered by his surround
injrs because the identity is too stiong.
When a citizen enters tho White I louse
as the political bend of tho nation ho
never hears another familiar word. From
tho august Secretary of State to the scul
lion in the kitchen it is "Mr. President."
Not only tlio inclination downward of
tho head with the bending muscles of
iho knee, hut even the voices of tho old
friends become humble iu tone and de
ferential in spirit. Clinging servants in
tho shape of Congressmen in fact, all
other mortals who have faors to cravo
creep and crawl before the face of
majesty. 15y and by the strong and de
signing of either si-.v el)o all the rest
avvay, and form a cordon aiound the
Kxoeutivo, (inloring all in the shape of
everything which teaches his ears and
eyes until he is no longer himself and is
as blind as a b.it hung to tho walls of tho
H1K LAST CAlllNKT HAY.
In proof of tho above assertion the
writer will givo tlio readers of The
Times a description of tho list day at
the White House buforo tlio nltempt was
made upon President (lai field's life. It
was Friday, tho last "Cabinet day" iu
tho . annals of this administration. It
was thu lirst day of July, hot and sultry
beyond description, Tho breeze which
swept through tlio open doors of the
Mansion came like tho breath from an
open oven. The spray from tho foun
tains turned into vapor iu its ascending
Might and reminded the beholder of boil
ing geysers in n volcanic plain. Inside
the White House a crowd had congre
gated to improve the opportunity of tho
last chance before the President should
depailoii his summer tour, lloth branch
es of Congress, army and navy, Gover
nors of States and Territories, with the
odds and ends of humanity all unknown
to fame, were collected in an indescriba
ble whirling kaleidoscope. At times the
stairs leading to the "throno room" would
Ik) turned into n cataract, but instead of
animalcule in tho water it was humanity
in tho air. The stuns free from tho de
scending mass would bo instantly filled
with the same kind of material iu an up
ward llight, to remain until hope was
dead, and tho lirst result A'ould bo
enacted again. It was understood that
tho President would seo tho people bo
tween tho hours of ten and twelve, al
though it was "Cabinet day." Uut.alas,
tho "people" meant tho Cabinet ollicers,
for not content with seeing their chief at
tho twelve o'clock council, it appeared
that each had a littlu private business of
his own. At ton o'clock, or rather five
minutes after, tho cone of tho Treasury
Department deposited Secretary Win
dom, apparently fresh from tho hands of
his laundress, faultlessly attired in thin
nest of summer covering, on tho Execu
tive porch. Thu fragrance of a perfumed
hath still clung to his handsome person
and nothing could bo compared to it but
heaven's own dew clinging to a morning
glory. With mischief dancing in his
ha.el eyes and a wavo of his fragrant
hand to tho little woman whoso duty it
is to press his olllci.il naino between
leaves of lavender, ho disappeared. Then
came Lincoln "Hob" tho people call
him, not t.'ill like his late father, but stil
wart of limb and broad of shoulder, a
strong, haiidsomo face, which lights up
with tlio saino expression which wo all re
member who had tho honor of standing
iu tho prcbenco of Abraham Lincoln. A
moment and ho is gono. Anil now
canies Postmaster General James, look
ing neither to tho right nor tho left, with
his cyes bent as usual iu one direction.
Huilt on tho narrow-gaugo plan, long,
slim, shallow nnd slender, ophidian and
dazzling, ono listens for tho death deal
ing rattle. Cold chills begin to creep
ulong the great uprvocontros. 1 Iodides
up tho stairs. Thank heaven, ho has
gone. A moment later and a prominent
Governor says :' "Garfield never knows
what that man is bringing about." Stand
nsido 1 1 lo's little, but how ho can stingl
It is MaoVeagh a Scottish chiof. Tho
tat tan nliild, bare legs and pibroch nio
invisible. Hound, deiiso nnd compact ns
a lmlicU with tho characteristics of Scot
land which mark him ns surely as the
furzothat each season adorns tholienther.
American-born generations may stand
between him and his ancestors, but ho
is no more changed than an English
walnut would be, transplanted to tlio
stii.i, tiihy comi:.
Square, heavy-rigircd, sitting low in
tho water, bearing down under full sail,
determined to reach tho port in time
this is Secretary Kirkwood. His clothes
aro thin and lleccy, but moro shocpy
looking than cloud-liko. Ho perspires 1
One is reminded of groat drops of rain
pattering on a shingled roof, only tho
noiso must exist in tho imagination.
Homely and plain as a crooked apple
tree, and yet tho very Bhado where it
would be delightful to linger. Only a
rough shell, containing the sweetest of
kernels. After eleven I The clock hands
point lo tho hour of twelve A moving
tableau enters tho broad corridor from a
side door. Secretary Hlaiuo is tho cen
tral figure, On his right walks Sir Ed
ward Thornton, in full court dress, daz
sding in decorations and gold lace. Ho
has come to take formal leave of the
President, as ho has been called home
by his Queen. On the left of the Secre
tary walks his eldest daughter, proudly
Aliss Alice Hlaiuo. She is clad in
pure white,unrclieved by color. A broad
brimmed chip iiat on tho back of her
head frames her oval brunelto face, and
with her youth and grace she is a striking
addition to tho picture. Secretary Hlaiuo
looks troubled and worried. The shad
ows have grown darker under his eves.
while the other portions of his face aro
far more pallid than of yore. His stop
is less elastic, but tho heat must be con
sidered. Tho doors close and tho cur
tain ff.lls. It should have been men
tioned before that the officials who guard
tho front doors of tho White House have
tho power to assign people to different
rooms in the order which may seem to
them best. Those whom they consider
of most consequence aro permitted to go
up tho stairs, whilst tho "rabble," so call
ed from want of honorary prefixes to
their names, must remain below. This
is applicable to Cabinet day. When the
fortunate arrives up stairs the winnow
ing process goes on again. Tho highest
privilege is to bo permitted to enter tho
room or headquarters of Mr. J. Stanley
Hrown, a youth of twenty-two summers,
whoso velvet cheeks, destituto of himuto
ornament or manly decoration, is suffi
cient evidence of his guileless innocenco
and his willingness to obey tho will of

Among other things that li.ivo floated
down on tho tide of hoar antiquity, nth
lelio exercises of strength and skill aro
to bo counted in. Pugilism, foot races,
quoit-throwing, wrestling, lenping, the
acts of acrobats, rope dancing,"" nnd
walking on tho tight rope, aro almost "as
old ns tho hills."
Many of our readers liavo either seen
or heard of tho surprising feats of Mon
sieur Hlondin, a wonderful French per
former, who won ft great reputation and
Hots of money" tliioughout tho United
States, some- twenty years ago, as a rope
walker. Sinco then Hlondin has chiefly lived
in Europe, occasioally pcrfoi'tdng and
nlways surpassing rivalry, whether on
tho part of male or female rivals. It
was Hlondin who having fixed a tight
ropo across Niagara and its foaming
waters beneath, used that slender path
way to walk, run, and danco upon.
Ho walked he ran along tho cord,
which scorned to tho spectators as a mero
thread, IIo sat down lo dino upon it or
play tho violin. IIo crossed it with a
stout man upon his back. Ho drove a
wheelbarrow before him upon it. Ho
oven crossed the abyss on a bicycle.

H. C. lai,1), when tho feast of Hacchus
was instituted in Greece that is, some
:i2L'o years ago, Ancient medals, care
fully preserved in the cabinets of curi
ous collectors, and of public musouins,
show how and what tho dancers on ropo
performed in the olden timo.
Somo of them ran up and down on a
ropo stretched obliquely. Others walked
upon a horizontal line, cither tight or
slack, with or without a balancing pole,
often throwing somersaults just as if
thev stood on solid ground.
i picture or iicrciiianeum shows a
man danoing on the rope, and playing,
much at his ease, upon a throe-stringed
in the timo ot the empire, tho Homans
were so much addicted to those hazard
ous and adroit feats that animals such
as horses and elephants were trained to
walk on the tightrope; and Pliny, who
mentions this, allirni that they descend
ed from tho rope backward.
In tho.se days tho dancers wore won-
(Irously skillful. Some, after having
walked along the rope, would take olf
their clothes and put them on again,
while on this slender looting, apparently
with as much ease as if they were in
Hope-dancing pasred, as an amuse
ment, from Homo to her conquered pro
vinces. Later, in tho reign of Charles
V, a man at Paris stretched slender
cords from the towers of Xotre Dame,
and slid down them so i.ipidly that ho
was called "Lo Voletir," or t ho l-'lyor.
When Isabel, of Havana, Queen of
France by mairiage, entered Paris, "Lo
Voletir," attired ns an angel, glided
down a lopo from tho lower of Notro
D.mio to the biidgo over tho Seine, and,
tit the moment the lady pa-sod, stood be
fore hor, while he removed a splendid
crown from his head lo hers.
Similar, and ecn far more difficult
feats in this line were performed in Lon
don, Milan and G.-noa. An ancient
painting shows how, on tho feast day of
St. M.nk, the patron saint of Venice,
an aciobat, walked down, occasionally
pausing to ilance, upon a ropo suspended
from the Campanile to tho Quay of tho

What was the reward the prize?
Simply a wieath of laurel, pine, wild
olive, or oak leaves, according to the lo
cality, lionor ol tlio vicloivwns

The athletes had to strive for tho mas
tery iu foot ami in chariot races, in
wrestling, in throwing the quoit, in pu
gilism, in combats with swords, javelins
or dices. Tlio winners obtained high
privileges, as well sis honors, and their
statues wcro placed iu tho sacred grovo
of Olyinpia, iu Elis henco tho naino of
tho Olvtnpiau games.
Feals ol strength wcro thought high
ly of. Joined with skill, as in wrestling,
it counted for a groat deal. Hercules is
reputed to have carried off tho prize, as
a wrestler, at tho Olympian Gaines. Hy
tho way, as tho athletes wcro not bur
dened with any garments, women were
not permitted to witness competitive per
formalities. Pugilism, sometimes familiarly called
"fisticuffs," was among tho ancient
games. When, itr a wrestle, tho rivals
came to blows from fistH to faces, it was
called the pancrerc.
Hoxing was onu of the earliest of
man's perfoimances, whether in sport or
anger. The Greeks had their children
instructed iu pugilism, as woll as iu phil
t sophy and the lino arts. Great care was
devoted to training and preparing them.
The Greek pugilist, was well rubbed
with oil, to make his limbs bupple nnd
slippeiy, and each fist was fortified by
tho cestus, consisting of leather thongs
wound nrouud it and tho foio part of tho
arm. In combat, tho blows given witli
tho aid of this armor were often fatal.
Hoxing matches wore often alluded
to or described by Homer, Virgil and
other classical writers. Tho crown'ui"
glory was to "go iu and win" coming
out of tlio contest safo and sound, with
out scratch or bruise. Even children
glorified in tho marks of the .strife.
"Tho Labor of Hercules," formoily
much in vogue iu Venice, was Greek iu
its origin. It consisted of a human pyra
mid, lonncd by somo thirty ablo bod

together, formed tho base, tier after tier
rising, until the summit was formed by n
single innn.htaiidiiig on tho joined hands

spread for him on tho ground. This is
tho way with modem gymnasts.
There were other feats, still in use.

How a Chinese, Woman wns Illsposnl of.
On the evening of tlio 30th of June,
while tho C. N. Company's steamer
Peking was lying alongside tho hulk at
Hankow, tho ollicers witnessed an at
tempt to drown a woman from a sampan
close to the lauding steps, on tlio pait of
two inen, ono of whom wns seen to push
hor into tlio water. Mr. Morgan, ct the
customs service, who saw tho occurrence
from tho shore, ran down tho steps and
rescued tho woman, the water there be
ing only about six feet deep. When he
pulled her out of tho water it was found
that hor hands wore tied behind hor and
that a largo stono was fastened around
her neck. She said lo her rescuer :
Maskeo I more bettor I die." When
she had recovered from tho effects of her
bath sho wont homo. Al -l:!30 a. m , tho
next day she was "successfully drowned"
by her two brothers in-law, tho men
whoso attempt had been frustrated on
tho previous day. They took her out
this timo into tho middle of tho river and
having attached a lino to her waist, as
well as pinioned her arms and fixed n
stone round her neck, they pushed hor
into tho water as before. After life was
extinct they pulled tho body up bv the
lino round the waist, look it ashore and
buried it with tho usual funeral rites
The crime of the deceased was staled to
be that "she lofuscd to marry an old
man ; sho being a fine, blooming widow,
wanted solnotlung better." Tho details
of the actual murder were given to Mr
Morgan bv somo Chineto who witnessed
both events, and tho murderers them
selves told him that it would have boon
