Cape Mat, N. J., July C This lovely
seaside resort is povr doing a fair business.
The hotels and boarding bouses hare a good
patronize and the town is filled with people.
This season has been a very damp one so far,
but the indications are that it will yet be a
good one. Cape May has had two good
booms early this year. The visit of the
President's wife and of her husband has
riven It an advertisement all over the
ft land. The visit of the PennsylTania Kditorial
5 Association last week was another boom for
1- Cape May. llcfore these visits it looked very
' ranch like a poor season, because of the recent
floods in Pennsjlvanla. The people 01 tno lana
poured out their liberality in the sufferers'
favor, and not a few of them were those who
are regular visitors to this resort. Many who
gave felt it their noble du'y, and will now sac
rifice their luxury of going to any seaside re
sort to compensate them for what they uid for
the unfortunate. There are many new faces in
town this season, but the hotel proprietors are
about the same as last year.
The Cape May ball team, composed of
Princeton' and Harvard's best pla) era, are here
playing good ball. They have not lost a game

Bedford is now fairly opened, and health
seekers arc flocking in on every train, so that
already a big season is assured. Toerge is here
with a full orchestra, and dancing has beeu
inaugurated with a grand ball. Everybody is
delighted with the great improvement made by
the Pittsburg company that now owns tho
Bprings property. Especially are they pleased
with the brilliant electric light illumination,
extending from the railroad station and out the
long drive to the very doors of the hotel.
Pittsburgcrs and persons Irom the western part
of tho btate have always visited here,
but this year the flow of visitors here from that

Barris'Theater Generously Offers tho Earth
to In Patrons.
Manager Harris has a strong attraction at
his house this week in J. Z. Little's -'World."
What makes this drama to popular and long
lived is a question that is frequently asked.
The reply is because it possesses more scenic
features than any play ever written. Its raft
scene has been admired throughout Europe,
Australia and America, and when it comes
back to Pittsburg again after several years'
absence it is as reallstc and mystifying as be
fore, as is the panorama scene, the revolving
scene and sinking ship, and all the other popu
lar mechanical devices. J. H. Huntley will ap
pear as Harry Ellliton, and the critics say he
gives the strongest impersonation of all who
have been seen in the part All the Bcenery is
new this season, and the company Is composed
of thoroughly good people.

Commissioner Tanner and Congressman A
C Thompson Discover Tbey Were Com
rades In Pope's Campaign News From
Post and Camp.
Corporal Tanner bad a pleasant experi
ence 'recently. Colonel A. C. Thompson,
who is now spending his third term in Con
gress as the Bepresentative of the Twelfth
Ohio district, and the popular Commissioner
of Pensions have been warm friends for
years, but did not discover until a short
time ago that they were bound by a special
tie. Comrade Thompson was Com
rade Tanner's immediate commander
when the latter received the terrible
injury p that crippled him for life.
At that'tlme Corporal Tanner was a member
of the Eighty-seventh New York, and Colonel
Thompson was Captain of Company K, One
Hundred and Fifth Pennsylvania, which was
in the same brigade. In the operations around
Catlett's and Bristol's stations, In Pope's cam
palgn", the Eighty-seventh New York became
badly scattered in attempting to corner too
long a line. Corporal Tanner, with a squad of
17 or 18 of his regiment, who bad been cut off
from their comrades, reported to General John
C. Robinson, the commander ot the brigade,
for duty. The corporal was directed
to place himself and men undor the
command of the captain of the left company
of the One Hundred and Fifth Pennsylva
nia. As the two left companies of this regi
ment had been captured. Company K, com
manded by Captain Thompson, was for the
time the left compnny, and Corporal Tanner
and bis comrades went with it into the battle
which almost Immediately ensued, and in
which a shell tore off the corporal's feet Both
the gentlemen were delighted to discover that
they had been actual comrades in battle, and
their friendship must haveincreased in warmth.
A Very Pleasant Evening.
The grounds of J. L. Miller, on Observatory
HUL were beautifully lighted up by Japanese
lanterns on Friday evening, and the members
of Post 182 and their friends assembled there
to listen to a lecture by Prof. Brashear and
participate in the festivities of theerening.
The learned professor discoursed on tne moon,
and the veterans learned all about tho pale
faced Luna. Prof. Brashear had a telescope
there to bring the subject of the lecture and
the adjacent stellar regions closer to the in
vestigating optic of the interested veteran.
Dancing was an enjoyable feature of the
evening, and refreshments were served by the
fair ladles of the G. A. R. Commander
Burchfleld. in his usual pleasant manner, did
all he could to make the evening a pleasant one
for all present, and success met his efforts, as it
always does. A number of wII-known Grand
Army men were present from other posts.
Comrade Jarboe was much affected upon dis
covering that the moon had no moisture about
it, and retired to a distant part of the grounds
to seek consolation in a glass of lemonade.
Comrade Armor is said to have whispered to a
comrade, after a thoughtful observation of the
moon through the telescope, that he aid not
think it was made of green cheese at all, as he
had been told. Comrade W. T. Bradberrv is
also said to have looked at the moon through
the telescope for that man he has heard so
much about but it is believed he came to the
conclusion that the lesser light is not inhab
ited. Comrade J. L. Miller and Prof. Brashear
received the sincere thanks of the post
A meeting of the representatives of the posts
in this vicinity was held in City Hall yesterday,
for the purpose of making arrangements for
the convenience of the comrades who intend to
attend the National Encampment at Mil
waukee, and also to secure the lowest rate pos
sible. The Railroad Association has agreed
upon one fare for the round trip, based upon
the lowest limited rate, which, at this writing,
would be $13 03 for the round trip between this
city and Milwaukee. This much is known as
the action of the association.
It was thought wise to interview the agents
of the several lines here as to accommodations,
etc., and a committee of one for each route
was appointed, as follows: Comrade Ben
cough, lor the Ft Wayne; Comrade Burch
fleld, Baltimore 'Bud Ohio; Comrade Sample,
Lake Eric, and Comrade Shook, the Western.
The rate agreed upon by the association is
about 60 more thau a 1-cent rate would
make it Another meeting will be held on
Saturday at sp.lt., two weeks hence, to bear
the report of the sub-committees and to decide
upon the route to be taken by those going from
this point Comrade Sample acted as Chair
man, and Comrade Bengough as Secretary, of
the meeting yesterday.

- Growth of the Grand Army.
The consolidated reports of the G. A. R-,
says the Washington National Tribune, show
that the first quarter of etery year is, ordina
rily, the poorest in point of gain. In some cases
even falling behind the last .quarter of the pre
vious year In membership in good standing.
The cause of this is probably largely to bo
found In tho fact that the new post officers
having assumed charge are deslrons of opening
their administration with a clean balance sheet,
and drop what they consider useless material.
The following table shows the growth of the
Grand Army in the last fire jears:
Members In good standing March 21, 19S3, 269, 6H.
Members in good standing March si, 1886, 290,317.
Members in xood standing March 31, 1SS7, SN.M6.
Members in good standing March 31. 1SS8. &,2I6.
Members in good standing March 31, 1889, S75.&39.
The total membership at the beginning of
the second quarter. 1SS9, is 117,415, which, how
ever. Includes 8.060 out on transfer cards, 6,250
from delinquent reports, 8.9S7 new suspensions,
and 21,609 previous suspensions.

Form a Separate Glass.

is Jfach Caste Among Them in England as
is the Higher Banks.
HAEQUIS OF SALISBUBl'B HOUSEHOLD
icokrxspondxnob or thx dispatch. l
London, June 25. The. best domestic
servants in the world are undoubtedly to be
found in England. Nowhere else can such
thorough, reliable and willing service be
had. . The servants of the aristocracy in the
middle ages were a class apart, and they
have remained so ever since. Today a serv
ant In Great Britain considers himself of a low
er circle of mankind than his master, and brings
up his children In the same belief. Humility
is tbe creed.
The master perhaps a drunken, sottish and
poverty-stricken gambler, graced by neither
birth nor position curses his servant like mad,
and flings his bootjack at him. The servant
who is as likely as not an intelligent honest
frugal and temperate man dodges the boot
jack, bows respectfully and murmurs the per
ennial "Thank you, sir."
This quality of humility is met with every
where. Nothing is more amazing to the casual
American than the hauteur and arrogance of a
typical London man or gentleman, since the
distinction is very sharp in the English metrop
oliswhen dealing with people who serve him.
He says "Please do this'' and "I thank you for
that" because it's the jargon of the town; but
his politeness Is put forth with such an lndls
crtbably arrogant air that it is scarcely less
offensive than a slap in the face. It is accepted
everywherewith the invariable t'Thank von,
THE TirPINO CUSTOM.
The old story Is still good of tbe Yankee who
stood on the stern of the steamer as she swung
out of Liverpool, and holding a shilling aloft,
yelled: "If there's a man, woman or child n
this blessed island whom I've not tipped, come
forward now, for this is your last and only
chance." I remember very well an experience
t had on my first day in London. I started out
with a typical London man to lnncb at his club,
and we stopped at a drugglst's-or chemist's,
as they say in England, with the ch pro
nounced softly to make some purchases. My
companion bought a few shillings worth of one
thing and another, and when his change was
brought to him he pushed tvo coppers toward
the druggist and said carelessly:
"Heah, you take these."
The druggist picked them np with a grateful
smile, and muttered, "Thank you very much,
sir." It was a fine, large shop on the corner
below Bond street on Piccadilly, and the drug
gist was a handsome, full-bearded and perfectly-dressed
man of about 0 years. Fancy
making the proprietor of a showy New York
drug store a present of a few cents.
The domestic servants of England are crea
tures of remarkable foibles and conceits.
Thackeray immortalized the flunkey's speech
and manner, but it is doubtful whether the
ridicule be poured upon them has had any
effect toward correcting their extravagance, as
it would upon that of any other class. These
servants stil speak atrocious English, but with
an unmistakably aristocratic accent ana
although their pay is seldom high, tbey look
down with lofty contempt upon worklngmen,
or. indeed, upon any one not holding tho social
rank which entitles him to treat them with in
solence. SOCIAL KANE.
In England the law assigns to everyone from
the ranks ot "gentleman" or "esquire" upward
a distinct ranF or precedence on the social
ladder. The servants, cf course, are not in
cluded In this, but among themselves they give
every man or woman his or her place in the
strictest manner, according to the rank ot the
master. A duke's servant takes precedence
over that of a marquis, and the servant of
either of these nobilities looks down upon the
man who is the servant of merely a "gentle
man." A thing which helps them greatly in
maintaining these distinctions is that under no
circumstances do they ever do work outside
that appertaining to their particular offices.
A butler, for instance, would be much less
likely to put a hand to work which snould be
done by a footman than a duke himself. The
upper men-servants have usually acquired, as
a result frequently of hereditary transmission,
an air ot aristocratlo vacuiry or supercilious
ness. They are not allowed to grow mus
taches, but that only serves to make more
prominent the aquiline nose and half scornful
lip. It also makes one think that tbey must be
relatives or friends of the great men of the
earlier Victorian period, such as Sir Robert
Peel, Lord Palmerston or tho Duke of Well
ington, and that they are survivals of that pe
riod. They are almost incomprehensible to the
majority ot Americans in their intense arro
gance. I recently had a scarceir sought for oppor
tunity of acquiring a great deal ot information
about the household arrangements of some of
tbe greatest territorial magnates of England.
Although tbey have to descend to the vulgar
modern practice of paying wages to their
servants, whereas their ancestors maintained
an army of hereditary retainers whom they bad
merely to feed and clothe, some of these noble
men still practically live like feudal princes.
Tbe modern duke, hotrever, does not live in
dally fear of some neighboring duke swarming
dowu upon him with bis retainers and carrying
blm and his family off to be accommodated in
a suite of rooms very low down in the neighbor
ing duke's castle.
TBE HONOR FOE PAT.
The small pay of the modern nobleman's ser
vant is probably due to his evolution from the
hereditary unpaid retainer. A duke's footman
is in many cases paid much less than a girl who
helps in the kitchen in America,
England, as everyone knows, is well saddled
with the picturesque but cumberous dignita
ries known as dukes. Prominent among them
are the Duke of Westminster, who maintains
Caton Hall, two other country seats and a
great house in London, and makes a regular
expenditure of more than a million dollars a
year; the Duke of Devonshire, wboownsCbats
wortb In Derbyshire, an almost imperial pal
ace, Hardwick Hall, Derbyshire, Compton
Place, Eastbourne, Bolton Abbey, Yorkshire;
Holker Hall. Carnsforth; Lisinore Castle,
Waferford: Chiswjck, in Middlesex, and Dev
onshire House in London; the Marquis of Salis
bury, who keeps Hatfield in Hertfordshire, one
of the grandest bonses in England, a large
house in London, and is now building a chateau
in the South of France; and tbe Earl of Derby,
with three or tour seats, including tbe famous
Knowsley, near Liverpool. The servants of
these men are numbered by hundreds.
1 went down to Hatfield recently to seek an
interview with Lord Salisbury. The Promier
was not there. I found a man servant of the
conventional type, who was at first hanghty
and unbending, and said that we I had a dis
tinguished American with me could not Db
taken over the house, as It was then in course
of preparation for tbe reception of the family.
However, a tip made blm unbend f reely.and be
went with us all over the grand old Elizabethan
mansion. After we had done this we found that
we had nearly an hour to wait for the train
from the local railway statlon.and that tbe riin
precluded all Idea of taking a walk In the
We therefore lighted cigars, settled down
over a fire in a large ante-chamber and listened
to the droll talk of the dignified retainer. The
fitful flickering of tbe firelight revealed in
distinctly tbe magnificent oak wainscoting of
the room and tbe portraits of bygone Cecils
upon Its walls. The servant was a tall old man,
somewhat bent, with a booked nose, shaven lip
and chin, a colorless complexion and iron-gray
balr and side whiskers. In talking he lost
after a while some of his affected manner of
speaking, but bis conversation on general and
historical topics was vulgar in the extreme.
PLENTY OP THEM.
He had been a butler and was now superan
nuated by the Marquis on a pension of $180 a
year and a house near at hand. He was taking
charge of the place on behalf of an absent ser
vant A sudden brightening of the Are showed
us tbe portrait of a tall, bearded, ruffled and
singularly bard-featured man, John Thomas,
Earl of Salisbury. We all looked at It, and the
ex-butler said: "Ah, 'e was a horf ul man. I've
'card say as'ow'e killed seven footmen." From
that he insensibly drifted on to tbe servant
question In so far as it concerned the Marquis
of Salisbury and a few gentlemen ot bis rank.
Told In tbe narrator's own words, it would
probably grow tiresome, and so I have boiled it
down into a plain statement "
The present Marquis of Balisbury keeps
aoous iv iduuui BurvtuiLs, euouTo oi uepenu
ents ot a higher class, such as private secrets
ries, librarians and chaplains. All of the serv
ants are only in activity when the Marquis is at
Hatfield, his London residence not requiring so
large a service. I give the catalogue roughly
iu the order of importance. First there Is a
house steward, who pays the otherservams and
is charged to a certain extent with their man
agement He receives 11,000 a rear, and his as
sistant, the undtr steward, S2Sa The butler Is
paid 1750 a year, and tbe two under butlers fiJO.
Two French cooks are paid SS00 a year each,
and a valet SSOO a year also. Then there are
eight coachmen, the (best of whom receive t250
a yean eight footmen, who receive on an aver
age 175 a year, and tour grooms ot the cham
ber, whose pay i abont the same.,
Of women servants, there are eight kitchen
maids whose pay range from 1126 to ITS a year,
eight housemaids and four still room maids, all
ofwflase pay is on 1A ( seaie m that ot
the kitchen maids. I have omlttsa to mention
for larder boys, whose pay is probably very
small, but who doubtless have a good oppor
tunity of getting, fat Then there are a num
ber of workman in constant employment on
tbe house, a large number of pensioners and a
long string of professional Or educated men.
Sometimes 130 visitors and servants are at Hat
field at a time.
IK PULL DBES3.
The upper servants dress for dinner, though,
for that matter, they are usually in evening
dress, and my ex-butler told me that 40 servants,
male and female, in full dress, often sit down
to dinner in the upper servant's hall. This in
cludes, of course, the valets and lady's maids
"We get very refined, we do, always h'asso
Sherati'n with the 'ighest of the igh,"remarked
my informant Of course a very important
item in the Income of these servants is con
tributed by tips, which they call "vails,' a cor
rect bnt somewhat unusual word. The serv
ants who come most in contact with visitors
receive fully half their wages over again in the
form of tips.
Lor4 Salisbury spends a fortune every year
among employes at Hatfield, indoors and out
He has, for instance, a head gardener with 25
assistants and a forester with 20 men under
bim. Tbe total yearly expenditure of Lord
Salisbury is about S400.00O, and he Is by no
means one of the richest of his class. These
facts only refer to the servants of the very
exalted. They find the life to be one of unin
terrupted and balmy content Tbe servants of
tbe smart but poorer people la the west end
of London do not have nearly such a good time.
These are tbe people who must keep showy
men servants, but cannot afford to have a
proper supply of help in the kitchen. It is
o-nnrllT hflllnTnd th-.t when thev have their
r houses crowded at tbe height of the London
season tbe servants are stowed away to sieep
somewhere In the cellars.
A London journalist recently told me a story
of a servant of Lord Salisbury's who was quite
a political personage at the time his master
was about to form a ministry in the autumn of
18S6L The journalist in question is the parlia
mentary correspondent of several of the best
provincial papers in England and Is a man of
tremendous dignity. He has been about the
world a great deal and has seen some fighting,
and is big, stout-bearded and strong-voiced.
He does not ordinarily condescend to "door
stepping," as the London reporters call going
to houses where they are likely to get snubbed.
He still boils with rage when he tells ot the ex
perience. When the Unionist majority was returned to
Parliament, in 1886, there was considerable de
lay, on the part of the Queen, in sending for
Salisbury to form a Ministry, and it was ru
mored that Lord Hartington would be sum
moned. Reporters were calling at Salisbury's
house, in Arlington street, all day long. One
morning a paper announced that Salisbury had
gone to Balmoral, where the Queen was at that
time. My friend, the Journalist rushed round
to Arlington street There he was received by
Mr. Sands, the Marquis's hall porter. He
asked Sands It It was true that Lord Salisbury
had gone to Balmoral, and Sanos replied In a
calm and stately way: "'Is lordship his now
hupstairs hln bed."
The journalist immediately went away and
sent out to the papers what was a good item of
news of a negative kind. Next morning it was
officially announced that Salisbury had gone
to Balmoral with bis list of ministers. The
correspondent found that at the moment the
hall porter bad said that Lord Salisbury was in
bed upstairs, he had really about reached Edin
burg on his way north. Almost overcome with
fury, be went round to Sands once more and
demanded to know what he meant by telling
him such lies. But Sands was six feet two and
unabashed, and be answered: "My business is
to look after my master. You've got nothing
to do with it I shall tell you as many lies as I
like. Go away." Then he slammed the door
in the newspaper man's face.
Lord Salisbury playfully speaks of Sands as
his "treasure." There are many such in En
gland. Indeed I know of no quality which Is
esteemed more highly among Englishmen than
this sort of rude loyalty. A man servant is very
often of measureless valueto the spendthrift and
broken British gentleman. He acts as a buffet
and shield, and guards bis master's Interests to
tbe end,even when he has nothing in the world
to gain. As I have said, he believes bis mas
ter to be of a high order of mankind, and is
content to serve him to the end.
A PITTSBURG LITEBABT SUCCESS.
BUss Kllllkelb's "Cnrlona Questions" Make
1 a Hit Second Volume New Ready.
The success which attended the first volume
of "Curious Questions," by Miss Sarah H. Kll
lkelly, of tbe East End, was so marked as to at
tract general attention. It was felt that a want
was filled most Instructively. Not merely had
Miss Klllikelly provided means to gratify the
transient curiosity of those interested in
the quaint and odd things of literature, but
her initial attempt has proved to be the begin
ning ot what will rank as an Important and
standard work of reference.
In short, Miss Kllllkelly's first volumelhas
quickly compelled asecond. This willappear the
coming week, July 10 being set for publication.
Tbe new volume contains answers to over 100
auestions which appeared in tbe appendix of
le first, and has altogether 27S questions an
swered tersely, compactly and yet sufficiently.
We hare not the space, of course, to enumer
ate any considerable part ot the list, but a
glance over advance proois . of the index
shows the widest range. History, art, war,
politics, poetry, biography, the sciences, music,
mythology, mediaeval romance, ecclesiastical
records, architecture, modern amusements in
short, every conceivable subject has been laid
under tribute by Miss Klllikelly tor these pa
pers. While the combination is strange, and the
most singularly puzzling questions appear,
there is yet hardly one ot them of which it
may not be said that it might any day reason
ably be asked, and that a reader of any nreten
sions would be apt to feel embarrassed if un
able to answer it What is very sure, bow
ever; is that no general reader, no matter how
thorough or assiduous his researches, would on
the spur of the moment be at all likely to an
swer correctly 25 per cent of the apparently
simple questions put by Miss Klllikelly.
This volume, like the last will be sold
by subscription. The talent and Industry
of the estimable author are so well
known in this community that not
only will ererybodv feel proud of the
success ot her first volume, but extend abearty
welcome to the second. Miss Klllikelly's
tame is no longer local. In literary circles
everywhere in tbe country her book is pro
nounced a success. A bundle of testimonials
from the most learned men of the country,
praising vol. I in the highest terms makes easy
the way of vol. IL The second volume Is pre
faced by a most complimentary introduction by
Prof. James D. Butler, of theState Historical
Society of Madison, Wis. There could be no
higher source of encomium. Miss Klllikelly
annonnces her second volume for the 10th of
the month, and orders for it may be sent to her
