Jf, now seems certain that Teemer and
Ganiaur will row on local waters. John
A. St. John wired to The Dispatch yes
terday know truthfully if Teemer had
put np any forfeit. Budd Doble had pro
verbial luck in the first three weeks of the
Grand Circuit wees.
The following dispatch from John A. St.
John, received by the writer and also one of
Teemer's backers last evening, indicates
that there lull be a race between the Mc
Keesport sculler and Gaudaur. The dis
patch reads as follows:
"Has Teemer deposited a forfeit with his
Undoubtedly this means that one of the
most honest and the stanchest patrons of
sculling means to back Gandanr. As
pointed out in this paper already, St John,
a gentleman beyond reproach in honesty
and one of the best judges of rowing in this
country, has great faith in Gaudaur" s abili
ties. Last spring Mr. St. John ex
pressed his opinion to the writer to
the effect that he would back Gaudaur
acainst anybody on fair terms. He was ready
then to match Gandanr to row Teemer, but the
tatter's backers discovered that John was not
rowing good enough, even though the latter
had issued the challenge. Undoubtedly
Teemer's defeat at Washington by O'Connor
put him in the shade, and it is natural to ex
pect that his new backers are anxious tackle
men who are not considered equal to O'Connor
or Scarlo before they tackle the two last
named. This is business.
teemer's new backers.
Let it be known that Teemer has new backres
ana gentlemen who are known as the most re
putable men of McKeesport, They were inter
ested in him last snring when he was eager to
row Gaudaur.but one of their number was cer
tain Teemer was no better, and probably worse,
than he was when He rowed O'Connor. A test set
tled this matter, and the backer was proven to
bo in the right. During the last two or three
weeks Teemer has been rowing in excellent
form, in fact he has been tried two or tbred
times to row four miles. He rowed a three-mile
trial eight or ten days ago which convinced his
backers that be is good enough to row against
anybody; hence the challenge which appeared
in these columns. However, J. G. Gaudaur is
a good rower, and let nobody make a mistake
about him. St John still stands by him.
Last evening Barney Morris, one of Teemer's
backers, was in the city, and, as usual, the
burly and good-natured sporting man talked
frankly. He said: "Now, let me tell you this.
Teemer has secured good backing simply be
cause HE HAS IMPROVED
his form from what it was when he rowed
O'Connor, and particularly from what it was
when he wanted to row Gaudaur last spring.
I knew then he could not beat Gaudaur. The
latter Is a first-class man, and I advised John
to let the challenge go until be was in better
shape. He is roving better now; he looks bet
ter, and says he feels better. We all know
that St. John thinks a lot of Gaudaur, and al
ways has been willing to put up the money for
him to row Teemer. Although Gaudaur is a
good man. I think that it is safer to tackle him
than to hold out for Searle or O'Connor. If we
can beat Gandaur we are so much the better to
row either of the other men, and if we cannot
beat Gaudaur why we'll wait until we see
what Gaudaur does with one or both
of them. At any rate we are prepared to risk a
stake of 31,000 on Teemer In a race with Gau
daur, and as the stakes are not extremely big
Gaudaur can have $300 expenses to row at Mc
Keesport. We probably cannot win or lose
much, but, really I would like to see the two
men tested, as O Connor has beaten both of
them. I certainly do not look upon It as a snre
thing for Teemer to defeat Gaudaur. If I did
I would be anxious to have the stake as high as
It is likely that Mr. St, John will to-day wire
In behalf of Gaudaur his absolute acceptance
of Teemer's challenge. Gaudaur has nothing
to lose, as his backer puts np the stake and
bets nothing. If Jake wins he takes the other
party's stake money, and St. John receives his
own money back. If Gandaur loses, St. John
Says all the damages. St. John is, withont
oubt, the most enthusiastic patron of aquat
ics in this country, and he has for several
years thought Gaudaur capable of beating any-
OFF TO CLEVELAND.
The Local Talent Leave to Tackle the
Babies and Anson
The local tall team will leave this morning
for Cleveland, where they expect to earn more
laurels. They won some great games last week,
and they expect to do just as well this week.
They have to tackle Cleveland and Chicago
before they return, and these are the two clubs
Immediately above them.
Manager Hanlon last evening talked quite
confidently about the prospects of the trip. He
pointed out the fact that Galvin, Staley and
Morris, the three pitchers going on the trip, are
all in cood condition. The fielders, he argues,
are all right, and the most encouraging feature
is the players generally are bitting the ball.
Moms will likely pitch to-day and Carroll will
be tbe catcher. Carroll is playing an admirable
cane just now at any point be is placed. There
is some wonder as to why Fields Is left, but the
reason is found in the fact that Carroll is
catching in his best form and is also getting on
a base of tener than anybody else.

Kansas Crrr, Mo., August 18.-AThe Cowboys
won another victory over the Orioles to-day. In
a game full ot sharp fielding and brilliant play

tbe game, four of their six runs being earned.
They found Foreman easy enough and batted
him for 13 hits. Conway held the visitors down
to nine hits, all pretty well scattered, while
his support was almost faultless, the only error
being made by Manning on a throw from home
to catch a base thief. The features of the

King pitched a fairly good game and he was
given splendid support. Sweeney distinguished
himself not only by his excellent stops and
pickups, but be made several running catches
of foul balls, which were marvelous. In the
ninth inning, with three men on bases ana two
out, ho saved the game by capturing a foul fly

better game to-day than usual of late, but were
defeated by superior work by Brooklyn. Ewing
pitched passably and his support was good, bnt
the visitors batted vigorously, and with an oc
casional lift by slips in Louisville's fielding

BUDD IN GREAT LUCK.
Big Winnings by Bndd Doble at the Circuit
Bndd Doble, the famous Chicago trainer, is
successfully perpetuating the Chicago princi
ple of always keeping in the front rank, by
gathering in tbe shekels at the big trotting
meetings with his grand stable ot trotters and
pacers. During the first three weeks of these
trotting meetings be won about 13,000 In stakes
aid parses, aside from what he has received
for exhibitions with the king of pacers, John
ston, 2:06 and possibly an occasional pool
ticket. At Detroit be won the 2:33 class with
Veritas, was second In tbe 2:24 clas viith Amv
Lee. third in tbe 220 class with Elista, and first
in the 220 pace with Budd Doble; total for tbe
At Cleveland e won third money in tbe 2:30
class with Elista. won.first money in the 222
class with Lady Bullion, first money in the 220
class with Jack, first money in the 2:33 class
with Veritas, and third money in the 2J7 pace
with Ed Annan: total for the meeting, 3,760.
At Buffalo Lady Bullion was sent fast enough
to seenre second money in tbe 222 class. Jack
bad to be content with second money in the 220
class, Geneva took second money in the 224
class, Marie Jansen took second place in the
4-year-old stake, while little Ed Annan came to
the front after the big field had shown their
hands and shot tbelr bolts in the first live heats
and gathered tbe 2:17 pace In ont of the cold in
straight heats; total tor tbe meeting, $4,250.
Ed Bilkers' Notion.
The Phil Sheridan of the trotting turf, tbe
dashing Ed Blthers, broached an idea that
should take shape. It is that with the growth
of stock farms and rapid increase of trotters
tbe fields are too unwieldly, and the business
will be rendered too expensive to follow unless
a limited number of entries shonld be taken in
one class. That is to say, not more than 5
at 10 per cent or 10 at 5 per cent. Here, for
example, most of the classes from 220 and up
ward yielded more than the amonntof the
purses. But on the running turf the owners
are Indirect participants in the general re
ceipts. It may be said that the free-for-all and
neighboring classes do not pan out so well, but
this can be remedied by insisting on genuine
free-for-alls or no race. Such apologies as the
Gene Smith-White Stockings nominal passage
at arms are simply tiresome. Many of the peo
ple came to see Clingstone and Rosaline
Wilkes make Gene Smith trot, bnt Mr. Gordon
had other plans (or Clingstone, and I hear that
Rosaline Wilkes is on the complaining list.
All that Turner said was that he was notqnite
ready to start her or Harry Wilkes. Norse
man. Now, Who Is Shay T
teracixi. TxxxonAif to thi dispatch. l
Portland, Me., August IS. John Shay, a
provincial slugger, is after Charlie Mitchell's
scalp, and challenges tbe Britisher to fight him
for any part of 315,000. Shay evidently means
business, bnt it is doubtfnl if he and Mitchell
will ever meet. He says he has fought a num.
ber of battles in the Provinces, and Is confident
that he can whip Mitchell. He is 28 years old.
Is 5 feet 8 Inches tall, and weighs J85 pounds.
He is a young man of remarkable physical de
velopment, but no one here seems to know
much about him. He came here from the
Provinces, and will go to England on a bark,
of which he is one of the crew.

A HORSE GOES CRAZT.
Remarkable Antics of a Deranged 'Animal
la the Hoosler State.
LAPORTK, Ind., August 1& Alfred McCarty,
of Burdlck, a small place west of here, is the
owner of a crazy horse. The animal is not
vicious or ugly, but is simply Insane. When
given hay it will grab a mouthful and hold it in,
its mouth for half an hour, and in the mean
time swing around in a circle, throw one foot
cat, as It it were dancing, and cat np all sorts
or silly capers. When let out of the barn it
will walk off a short distance and then gallop
back at a terrific rate of speed.
If tbe door Is open he will go In, bnt If ehnt
the animal will dash against it without know
ing that an obstruction is in its way. If hitched
up It will start to run straight ahead, and can
neither be turned nor stopped until It becomes
completely exhausted. The Insanity has only
lately appeared. The case is a very strange one

The special baseball correspondent of
The Dispatch sends some interesting
news this week. The leading feature is the
growing opinions in favor of the double
umpire system. A true statement of Pow
ers' trouble in Cleveland is given by a good
Cleveland, O., August 18. This has
been an exciting week in local baseball cir
cles in more ways than one. The first agi
tation began on Monday, when the Giants
defeated the Clevelands in a close and beau,
tifully played game, principally through a
close and not tbe best decision in the world
by Umpire Powers. The local club had
been suffering more or less from the
work of the umpires, who seemed to deem it
their privilege to give the Forest City men
the worst of everything, on the supposition
that Cleveland was a new club and could
stand it Naturally the patrons of the game
resented it, and the growling was going on
constantly beneath tbe surface and increas
ing from day to day. The local papers
kept quiet on the subject, fearing that agi
tation on the matter might provoke open
hostilities. On Wednesday, however, tbe
trouble came to a head, and Powers came
very near being roughly handled by a num
ber of citizens, who jumped the railing and
started for the plate, with an' evident deter
mination to oust htm from the grounds. How
the trouble was settled and peace again re
stored tbe readers of The Dispatch are well
But they are not all of them conversant, pre
sumably, with tbe real facts that led to the
trouble. McAleer hit cleanly to left field, and
by sharp base running got to second. Powers
ran down to second on the play and motioned
McAleer to stay there. When he came back to
tbe plate Ewing stepped up to him, spoke a
few words, called tp Ward to throw the ball to
Connor, and then Powers declared McAleer out
on tbe ground of not touching first base. Then
the crowd rose up In a body, not angered so
much on the question of the correctness of the
decision as the method by which it was brought
about. It was plain to be seen that Powers had
given It simply at the dictation of Bnck Ewing,
who virtually ran thidgs as he pleased in the
whole series of three games.
The officers of the League can hardly expect
to see Swing's dictation to umpires bo tolerated
forever without a loss of patronage and attend
ance. He has altogether too much to say, and
the one man power is too obnoxious to those
who desire to see baseball on its merits. Tbe
outcome of recent games in this city has made
the officials of the Cleveland olub warm advo
cates of tbe double umpire system, and Cleve
land will go in for its adoption at the next
League meeting, figuratively speaking, with
both hands and feet.
Umpire Powers is accredited wlthastatement
to a Cleveland player in this city which is pecu
liar, to say the least. He said that he bad in
structions to let Ewing talk to tbe batter and
coach on the lines just as he pleased, that it
was essential to tbe New York club's succoss,
and that it made very little difference anyhow.
Now, whogare Mr. Ewing tbe privilege of being
the only "privileged bully" in the Leagne?
There's a conundrum for some of the wise
acres. If a member of the Cleveland club, or
tbe Plttsburgs, the Washingtons or Indianapo
lis, for instance, shonld go on the field and act
with the license and freedom .that Ewinc does
tbe result would be a young mountain of fines
and a peremptory invitation to sit on tbe
bench. Baseball patrons understand these
little matters Just as well as anybody else, and
an intimation tbat one player, is privileged to
do things tbat are forbidden to others is some
thing that will not be accepted with very good
grace, and trouble is likely to ensne from it.
"Kid" Madden got as bad a drubbing from
the Clevelands Thursday as any pitcher has re
ceived in the Leagne this season. It fairly
rained base hits for a time, and Twitchell
batted until his arms were sore and his legs
stiff from running, his batting feat consisting
of a home run, three three-base hits, a double
and a single out of six times at bat, which
beats the year's record and has probably never
been excelled in late years in the League.
Faatz has a badly injured finger, but it is
healing fast, and be may go in daring tbe Pitts
burg games. In the meantime Gllks is playing
first base, and playing it well. Gllks is proba
bly the best utility man in the baseball busi
ness. He can play any position on the dia
mond, even to pitching or catching. He is a
fair batter, and very successful when men are
Hanlon's friends in this city are hoping that
he will bave better Success with tbe Plttsburgs
than nnlncky Horace. The news of Philips'
breaking down was received with genuine re
gret by those who had become acquainted In
this city with Iiim during his active years in
baseball circles. John B. Foster.

ISFECIAL COERI8FENDENCI TO THE TJISFATCH.1
Washington, August 18. The race for the
League pennant is not yet decided by any
means, and several surprises may be looked for
before tbe season closes. New York and Bos
ton are making a desperate struggle to lead into
the homestretch, and at the present writing
the champions have a slight advantage. Those
persons who are fond of free hitting games
have no cause for complaint, as nearly all of the
clnbs are improving tbelr batting records at a
lively rate. Pittsburg appears to bave been
experimenting successfully with "the elixir,"
as its League representatives arepntting up
a young-blood quality of ball tbat is very an
noying to the leaders. Cleveland continues to
upset calculations made withont its knowledge
or consent, and in tbe meantime tbe Philadel
pbias are peggingaway in a determined maimer,
that causes no little apprehension in New York
The New Yorks appear to have the greatest
amonnt of reserve power, and they will return
from their Western trip full of couraee and
confidence, calculated to help tbem materially
ounng weir tone sojourn on me .roio grounds.
There is no disguising the fact tbat Buck
Ewing, John Ward and Ban Richardson are
three of the best emergency men in tbe League.
In game aftergame tbe reports show tbat these
men come to the rescne at tbo critical moment
and snatch victory ont ot the jaws of defeat.
They not only play with their hands and feet,
bat they play with their beads and hearts.
Ed Williamson's reappearance in the Chi
cago team restores to its normal condition the
famous "stone-wall infield.' and old "Anse"
may canse the leaders considerable trouble
yet, even If he does not succeed in redeeming
some of the rash promises he made earlier in
What of the Senators? Well, they are about
holding their own in the West and ara potting
up a fair game of ball. They bave evidently
had a misunderstanding with Dame Fortune, as
it was fully expected that they would make a
better showing in Pittsburg than they did.
"The Elixir" began to have its effect just after
their arrival there. They exceeded home ex
pectations in Indianapolis, so tbat all things
considered they bave done quite well.
Presiaent Hewitt is busy looking for a new
ball park, and he has about concluded that tne
most desirable place is Van Ness Park, about
two blocks from the White House. In conver
sation with your correspondent to-day. Mr.
Hewitt stated tbat he is very well satisfied with
his team, only be would like to capture a heavy
uiiung nrst Baseman wiuiout a record, xie IS
looking for an active man who is willing to earn
It is hardly probable tbat any material
changes will be made in the home team during
the remainder of the season, but Arthur Irwin
has authority to capture any desirable men,
whenever they may be found. Captain Irwin
has "caucht on" in great shape with Mr. Hew
itt, and the latter tars he is beginning to real
ize some of the pleasures of being a baseball
magnate, now that he has such a valuable
managing captain. Arthur evidently has the
interest of the Washington club at heart, and
be has an appreciative employer in Mr. Hewitt.
Every reasonable effort will be made to keep
the present team Intact throughout next sea
son, as all of. the players appear tu be perfectly
content with their present condition, and they
all commend Captain Irwin's methods In the
Sullivan, tbe famous Boston twirl er, who per
mitted the Clevelands to pile up 14 runs in a
single inning, is still on the Senatorial pay rolls,
but be will probably be dropped when the clnb
returns East. George Keefe is again in condi
tion and he will join his clnb in Philadelphia.
Thornton, who Ditched for the Benatnra. In tha
last Indianapolis game, is a promising young.
ster. and be will be experimented with further.
Had he been properly supported he would have
won his game, for up to tbe seventh inning he
bad only been bit safely four times. He is
ambldexterious, being able to pitch in good
form with either right or left hand. Poor old
Hank O'Day has tbe profound sympathy of a
large circle of acquaintances in this city. He
was continually complaining about bis field
support, and speculating upon what he would
do with a good team behind him. He was
secured by the champions ot the world, yet In
nearly every game in which be has officiated ho
has been driven out of tbe box.
It is becoming more and more apparent dally
that the double umpire system is needed to pre
vent the constant quarrels between umpire and
players the latterbaefced up by the spectators.
It is a difficult matter for one man to judge
strikes and balls behind the plate, at the same
time keep his eye on three bases, and also
watch every movement of a dozen or more
players. The League can afford it and the pa
trons of the game desire it.

A GREAT MEETING AHEAD.
The Prospect for tbe Comins Week at
Chicago, August 18. To-morrow begins the
meeting at Washington Park of the trotting
and pacing horso'breeders of the Northwest.
Of the performers of the day but little is
known outside the ranks of the trotting horse
interest, but the entries are large, and it is
possible that some good performers may be
developed. In the 2:40 class there are several
animals with private performances as good as
2-20 or better, but it is a certainty that the win
ner will gain a record far below such a mark.
The 5-year-old stake Is deprlvod of its interest

The 225 class will afford the best contest of

A WEBSTER EEMINISCESCE.
One of the Occasions on Which the Orator
v Was Feellag Goad.
It was away back somewhere in the fifties.
Webster had been making a tour through
the West, the occasion for which I don't re
member, if indeed there was any beyond
health and recreation. On his return he
had consented to a reception in Albany,
which was in charge ot the Young Hen's
Association of that city. The day had been
a very dry one, rendering frequent libations
necessary, and so it was when the "godlike"
stood up before the good citizens ot Albany
he was more than usually dignified and im
pressive. "Young men oi the city of
Albany," he began, and then on, in ponder
ous sentences, each one of which he began
and ended with, "Young men of the city of
Albany." During his remarks he said :
"When I was in the city of London,
England, young men of tbe city of Albany,
the Lord Mayor of that great city gave a
dinner, and among those invited to be pres
ent on the occasion was the humble indi
vidual who has now the proud privilege of
addressing you, young men of the city of
Albany. During that dinner a num
ber of toasts were proposed, young
men of the city of Albany, and among
others cne by the Lord Mayor himself To
Daniel Webster, member of the Upper
Senate of the State of New York.' Young
men of the city of Albany, to be a member
oi any Senate of the State of New York is
an honor, but to be a member of the Upper
Senate of the State of New York is an
honor indeed, young men of the city of
Albany." Pendis L. Jetcitt.

BEET HAETE AND THAT EUCHRE GAME.
How the Poker flayer Squelched the Unfeeling
Bill Nye visits England and takes in the
royal wedding, leaving his humble offering
to the young bride. He is greatly discom
moded by the populace, and goes home dis
gusted with himself.
London, Jnly 29. I just dropped over
here to attend the rdyal wedding and shall
remain"'a week at this town, perhaps. I
could not attend the Batienbnrg wedding on
account of illness among my stock, but I
said to myself then, that if ever I happened
to be near London again when there was a
royal wedding I would not crawl ont of it
on those grounds,
I took a clnb train from Paris at 4:30 in
the evening and came via Calais and Dover
to London. The ride was devoid of inci
dent. The channel has my compliments,
such as they are. Everybody pays his com
pliments to the channel. It is a lovely
sheet of water. I looked at it a while with
great, big. solemn, soul-lit eyes and heaving
chest. It is not a wide channel, but it is a
very busy one.
I went'at once to tbe hotel. I have been
asked to say a good word for it and now
hasten to do so. It is very large and makes
45 per dent per annum on Its capital. I
slept and picked my teeth there, but ate
elsewhere. I always like to eat elsewhere,
and so I did The hotel did not like it I
said I was sorry, bnt I could not seem to
help it. I was willing to pay for the at
tendance which I did not let; also the wine,
ale, beer, malt liquors, policemen, prayers,
writing paper, lights, fuel, feed, baled hav,
perfumery, etilton cheese, tar roofing, medi
cal attendance, common lumber, cafe noir,
lime, cement and use of lift, but I just
would kind of like to eat where I chose, so
long as I was there on the European plan.
If Thappened to be several miles away sit
ting for a wax figure of myself to be used
by Madame Toussaud and Mrs. Jarlev, I
would not jump the moment the whistle
blew and scoot for the hotel in order to run
up a still bigger bill for use of mustard
spoon, laundry of napkin, use of tooth pick,
wear and tear of dining-room floor, etc.
KEPBOVED BY HIS HOST.
So the hotel reproved me and the man
ager looked askance at me. "When I came
in late, looking well fed and with a sparkle
of merriment in my beautiful rich, brown
eyes, he looked at me reproachfully and
butted his h:ad against the wall two times
in rapid succession. The hotel is run by
American patronage, and yet the only mur
mur that arises from the entire American
contingent is not pleasant to the manage
ment The hotel, I need hardly add, has
been recently refitted and refurnished
throughout, has a new rubber door-mat,
with holes punctured through it, and a row
of flunkies who adorn the hall and who
welcome the arriving and speed the depart
ing gnest at a shilling per welcome and one
and six per speed.
The day of the royal wedding dawned
rather wet and cheerless. The sun came out
the day before, long enough for us to see
that our trousers were all properly rolled
up at the bottom and then it . went back
again. The chimes of bells at 1 shilling 6
per chime, broke through the moist air. I
took my bright new Gorham butter dish,
wrapped it in a newspaper,-and started for
I was all dressed up and was the cyno
sure of all eyes. Many people turned to
look at my bright, expectant face and elas
tic step. London was all agog. Some of it
was all agrfg. I drove hastily up to where
the service was to be held and alighted from
my hansom, fearing that I had kept people
waiting. I found 50,000 people there, also
with expectant faces. I asked a bobby if the
folks had come. He looked straight ahead
of him at a mark. I shook hands with him
at one and six and then he became more so
ciable. He said they had not come. I
knew then I had several hours to wait and
so, in the language of Amos J. "Walker, I
was anxious to get at it as soon as possible.
By and by tbe Life Guards came
along and everybody pulled out an
extra joint in his neck to see
them. Then a red flannel coach with
haughty papier mache coachman and foot
man came along. It had no one inside of it,
bnt everybody looked at it in utter aston
ishment, and one man near me yelled "God
save the Queen" as he gently inserted his
hand in my pocket Another man stepped
on my patent leather shoe and tried to hold
his breath, but it was too strong for him.
It now rained.
A GBAND SPECTACLE.
Then a mounted policeman drove down
the long ranks of excited people. I wish I
"knew as much as he seemed to know."
Solomon in all bis glory was a little, wilted
wayside violet compared with that man. If
I had his self-respect together with my great
big teaming (mule teaming) brain, I would
be, no doubt, a man who could make the
civilized world stand aghast
Then another red coach with a red driver
and three fdotmen in red and gold and
sawdnst legs and powdered hair drove by.
A tradesman on my left stuck his wet um
brella through my high hat and murmured,
"God save the Queen." There was no one
in the coach, and we couldn't have seen
them if there had been a dozen.
It now rained again.
We waited for the clouds to roll by. My
legs went to sleep one by one and slumbered
orpeacefully. At last there was a burst of
music, and tne small royal band, with no
leader but a little drum major with a black
velvet jockey cap and the air of one who
owns the earth, came along the avenue,
which was walled with 60,000 people, in
the midst of whom a tall, lithe, American
fool might have been seen.
In about two weeks apother red coach
came along and tuere was some one in it
Everybody said, "That's 'er." I afterward
learned tha- it was the loyal chambermaid.
I woke up one of my legs and tried to get a
better place. I got one where the mud was
a little less yielding, but the juice from an
umbrella owned by a short lady ran down
my neck. She also put Bide whiskers
on my silk hat by subbing it the
wrong way. Then several red coaches came
by.' Everybody said," "That's 'er," and
then we waited again I have been a fool
three times this year that I remember of.
Once when I watched the inaugural parade
till my eyes were red, once when I looked
at the Centennial parade till my teeth got
loose, and once when I watched the wedding
party in London.
THE BRIDE AEBXVES.
Finally a carriage went by, with a little
stout old lady in it We also caught sight
of a good-natured msn, in a red coat and
full habit, and a slender girl in a long,
white veil and her other dress. , I am told
that these three were the Qneen, the Prince
ot Wales and the bride. If they saw me,
they dissembled very much.
I was tired, and so sending to the honse
my butter dish with my card, printed in our
owd job office, where all kinds of plain and
colored work, blanks, eqnestrian bills and
ornamental printing are done promptly for
cash, I weht home with my slumbering legs.
I give below a list of the wedding presents
as nearly as possible, from memory:
To tbe bride, from her grandmother, one
camol's balr shawl.
To Mrs. Fife, from Mr. B. Nye. of America,
as an evidence ot friendship between the two
great countries, one beautiful batter dish,
chaste and elegant beyoad. description.
, From the brWs father, beautiful teacup and
sancer, bearing the statement In old German
j FOB A GOOD GIBI I
From the bride's mother, set of delightful
"doylies" and nut-crackers.
Fcnm the Rr, Hon. William E. Gladstone, to
the Earl of Fife, a fcassdrum and stereoscope
for the sitting room.
From Ireland, a bushel of Early Rose
potatoes, and the motto, worked in green yarn
on a perforated cardboard ground:
: GOD HELP THE 'BICH, :
C THE FOOB CAN BXG. :
From tbe Hhah of Persia to the bride, a large
photograph album, containing pictures of him
self. From Prince Bismarck, a red message,
From the editor of Punch, paid-up subscrip
tion to tbe paper for one year.
From the Lord Mayor of London, a box ot
From the regular local humorist who always
sends something Intensely funny to the groom
and then sinks again into obscurity, one Jump
ing Jack, price 6d.
Bnt space forbids a fnll description of the
wedding presents, and I pass on to speak of
BBEX HAETE EXPLAINS.
I ran across Bret Harte the other day at a
reception and reproached him for some re
marks once made by him which reflected
upon me. I told him that it was baldly
fair for him to build up his own reputation
at tha. expense of mine. I do not play
euchre, especially with a Chinaman, and I
made him admit right there before every
one that he did not mean any disrespect
when he said:
"And I gazed upon Nye and Nye gazed upon
And be rose with a sigh and be said: Can this
We are ruined by Chinese cheap labor.
And be went for tbat heathen Chinee."
Mr. Harte's hair is now white, also his
mustache, but his face is ruddy. He has
shaved off the side whiskers he used to
wear and his eyeglasses dangle by a string.
He does not seem to have lost any of his
American ways, at least I did not notice
that he had done so.
Speaking of euchre and kindred games
reminds me of a little incident which oc
curred on the steamer coming over from
America. You see on an ocean steamer a
miniature world. There are various Kinds
of people from everywhere, all thrown to
gether for a week perhaps, and manifesting
their queer characteristics.
On board the steamer a few days out from
New York, our stoker gave up to the heat
and died. He was brought on deck to get
what air there was, for we were in the gulf
stream and even the passengers panted in
the shade. Inside the smoking room a
party of men were playing pokex and an in
teresting jack pot was in the center of the
table. Bed, white and blue chips were
poked forward, oae after another, till spec
tators held their breath. Outside the stoker
was gasping at long intervals and waiting
At this moment the fresh young man with
the Kodak camera came along. He is every
where this summer with his ltttle Kodak.
He is even in Pans and London making
views of respectable American citizens who
are abroad for thepurpose of having a mid
dling good time and not for the purpose of
having their pictuaes taken. In fact, they
would pay a small bonus not to have their
their pictures taken sometimes.
Well, the breezy youth got ready and
with a good light on the face of the dying
man, was abont to enrich his collection
when a gentleman from New Orleans, who
really had the best hand for the jack-pot,
saw the performance. He rose with a sigh,
and, throwing down his hand, face up, so as
to lose the jaok-pot, he went to the port
hole and said: "Young man, if you do that
I will throw you and your cursed concentina
into the hungry sea. I may be a wicked
man. I play poker and am somewhat un
regenerate, but if yon dare to photograph
that poor devil on the shores of eternity just
to brag about it when you get home you
will in less than two minutes make the
loudest plunk that the Atlantic ocean has
been the recipient of for some time."
He then resumed his wicked game of
draw. Bill -Nye in New York World.
A Tonne Man Whose Skin Will Hereafter
Match HI Yellow Shoe.
C. H. Black, a well-dressed young man
was trying to secure subscriptions to a watch
club in the El Dorado street tannery. He
approached one of the workmen who was
scraping the hair from hides. The work
man scraped away vigorously, and hair
and lime were scattered on every
side, Black dodged about, so that
his immaculate attire shonld not be
soiled. The workman seized a hose and
turned a stream of water on the hide to wash
away the loose hair. The water splashed in
the direction of Black, who nimblv jumped
back to avoid it He had failed to obey
that old proberb, "Look before you leap,"
and he went Bouse into a vat of tanning
liquor. His heels flew up from under him
and he sat down up to his neck in the dark
brown liquor, which splashed all over his
head and face.
As soon as the workmen could stop laugh
ing sufficiently to act they pulled him out
of his unpleasant bath, and he stood drip
ping on the walk, looking like some beer
god just after a bath in the liquor loved and
protected by Gambrinus. The hose which
had originally caused all the trouble was
now brought Into play to repair damages.
Black was made a target for a stream until
as much as possible of the tanning liquor
had been washed from his garments, as well
as from his face-and hands. He was taken
to his hotel and put to bed, while his only
euit of clothes was being washed, dried and
Before all this could be accomplished,
however, his skin had been subjected to the
action of the strong tannin, and despite the
use of every known means to neutralize it,
his skin will for some time be several shades
darker than it was before his involnntary
bath. He will have the comfort, though,
of knowing that it will match well with a
pair of yellow shoes.

Tidal Wave at Atlantic City Earlhqanke
at Salt Lake.
"When the great tidal wave comes," said
a well-known newspaper man, "you don't
want to be at Atlantic City. It is les3 than
five feet above the. ocean, and a big tidal
wave will go right over it Last Saturday
there were over 160,000 people there. Just
let the wave catch them. The, sea is con
stantly adding to the water front, and the
people who are fortunate enough to own a
water front profit immensely from the sale
or use ot the land given up by the sea.
Everything pays down there. The nickel-in-a-slot
contrivances take in scores of dol
lars, and the roller-coasters and merry-go-rounds
haul them in by the hundreds.
"But, speaking of the dangers along the
coast, friends in Charleston tell me that not
a week passes that they do not feel the
tremors of an earthquake. The papers
there are silent on the subject, but the best
informed people feel certain that another
great earthquake, as severe as the last, is
liable to visit Charleston at any hour.
'Then, too, one of the leading geologists
of America has staked his scientific reputa

quake. The geological conditions are right
he says, and in time the earthquake will
come. It may be several thousand years
off, but the scientist, it is said, proposes to

A YEEITABEE BOMANCE IN EEAL LIFE.
The Story f lVive and Adientnre Which Comes From
From TJtica, N.. Y., comes a romantic
story of marital difficulties. Two true
hearts were separated by a quanel, both
were married, ,but now they are reunited.
TJtica, N. Y., August 18. Living very
quietly in a bouse near the Central depot in
this city are a, young man and a young
woman known as Mr. and Mrs. Conklin,
who have had an interesting experience
during the past three years. Their story,
as told by a man who happened to meet
Conklin in the street and recognized him as
a man with another name, is as follows:
Mrs. Conklin's'real name is Mrs. Eleanor
Hatch, bnt it won't be long. The man she
lives with is John Turner. Two years ago
last March Mrs. Turner was living unmar
ried with her father and mother upon the
west side ot the Adirondacks. Her name
was Eleanor Roberts. She was a good
looking farm girl, and John Turner, a stal
wart lumberman, was her best young man.
Turner lived with his father about a mile
from the Roberts farm.
Early in March, 1877, an old man named
Sennie, who lived in a cabin in the same
neighborhood, was taken sick, and inside of
two weeks 'he died, leaving a young wife
and three chdren 'to be cared for by the
town. Under the circumstances tbe neigh
bors turned to with a will to help the unfor
tunate widow and make her as comfortable
as possible. The man was decently buried,
and a supply of the necessaries of life was
given to the widow.
No kinder-hearted people live in the
world than the woodsmen of the Adiron
dacks, but they'conld not of course, make
a woman with three small children wholly
comfortable, even if her loneliness after the
death of her husband be not considered.
There were many things to be done, such as
looking after firewood and feeding and
milking the one cow the widow had, which
were anything but pleasant for a woman to
do, especially when her children were
Of all the neighbors no one seemed to ap
preciate tbe misfortunes of the young widow
more than John Turner. He was a big
hearted fellow, anyhow, and when He saw
her crying over the coffin of her husband it
is said that he blubbered aloud, out of pare
sympathy. When the funeral was over he
was the first to take hold of the work about
the cabin which a man ought to do, and
every day thereafter he visited the widow
and the fatherless in their affliction.
In this, for a time, he had the hearty co
operation of his sweetheart, but it was not
very long before she began to speak coldly
of the distress of the lone woman. From
coldness her feelings rapidly developed into
openly expressed dislike, and by the begin
ning of April John was told that he must
either stop going to the widow's or to the
A "WTDO'W NO LONGEK.
The choice was made without hesitation,
for John had already passed from a state of
deep sympathy to one of kindliest regard
for the widow. He bade Eleanor goodby
and hastened to the widow. Just five weeks
from the day of the funeral of old Dennie,
John Turner and the widow drove to the
nearest village"where a' parson resided and
were made one. It is an interesting fact
that the widow, though young say 2G years
old was just six years older than her new
The marriage made a great talk in the
country side. Everybody was down on
John and his wife; even John's people
sided with the girl, and made life uncom
fortable for the dot. Under the circum
stances, John and his wife sold the cow,
abandoned the lease on their farm, which
wasn't very much of a farm anyhow, and
moved ten miles away.
Thereafter the storm of gossip subsided,
and matters ran on ift the old fashion until
July 4. On that day there were big doings
up at Boonville, on the Utica and Black
Biver road, and Eleanor was among those
who attended from her neighborhood. It
was a jolly party of young folks that gath
ered on th'e veranda of one of the hotels, and
in consequence several Boonville young
people who knew members of the party
joined it Among the rest was a man named
Charles Hatch, from Connecticut, who was
temporarily ib Boonville. Hatch was the
oldest member ot the group, but he was
yonng in feelings, good-looking, and socia
ble. He became the life of the gathering.
Before the day was passed he was paying
particular attention to Miss Eleanor Rob
erts, and his suit was in no wise discour
aged. ON WITH THE NEHT.
Hatch was a carpenter, and of a thrifty
turn. He was just 40 years old; he had a
handsome sum in bank, and he earned good
wages. When, after a week or so, he called
at the Roberts farm to see Eleanor he was
received complacently by the old people.
In September Eleanor and Hatch were mar
ried. Thereupon Mr. and Mrs. Hatch bought a
farm over inthe adjoining town, tbe one to
which Mr. and Mrs. John Turner had
moved to escape the tongues of gossiping
neighbors. During the winter Hatch re
paired the honse and buildings generally,
and when the snow went off in the spring
he went at the fences. Meantime he had
got out a big pile of firewood and had, in
short, made qnite a stir in his new home,
and had taken front rank as a worker among
the farmers round about.
In marked contrast with the energy of
Mr. Hatch-was. the life of John Turner.
John had been a good woodsman and could
peel more bark than half the men he met in
the camps. But after he married the widow
he became discouraged, lost his grip some

matters worse, when the fall came on and he

It is said that Mrs. Eleanor Hatch found

When the warm weather came Mr. Hatch
determined to build an' addition to his barn.,
He needed help, and, on casting about for a
man, concluded that John Turner was tha
most available one he could find. He knew
about John's having jilted Eleanor, and it
is said that he was not unwilling to allow
Mrs. Eleanor a chance to order ber recreant

order the hired man. John was therefore
engaged, hnd went to work. His health
had returned to him, and somehow he began
to work with his old vim. Mr. Hatch was
pleased with the- new hand, and Eleanor very
soon forgot to find unnecessary work for hint
By and by Turner noticed (for John lived
with the Hatches during the week) that his
employer was not an over-affectionate hus
band. He was a good provider, though not
liberal, but he never seemed to have either
time or inclination to caress Mrs. Hatch. .
John even noticed that the caresses of Mrs.
Hatch were accepted in a matter-of-fact sort
of a way, and, further, that little attentions
of tbe sort were less and less frequently
proffered by her.
JOHN WAS SYMPATHETIC.
Now this awakened the sympathetic na
ture of John. John was of an affectionate!
disposition, as already intimated, but Mrs.
John was not so much so. He knew how to
feel sorry for Mrs. Eleanor. Besides, he
could not help remembering the old days
when Mrs. Eleanor was a Miss and when
her caresses proffered to some one else were
met more than half way.
Hatch was a driver about the farm work.
Let him drivel He was such a driver that
he never noticed what was going on in the
house. By and by another fall came. He
settled up with John Turner and paid him
off in cash. The next day John Turner and
Mrs. Eleanor Hatch disappeared, and the
next that was heard from them was when a
man who had known John recognized him
fn the man called Conklin, now living near
the Central Railroad station in Utica.
This acquaintance stopped to talk with
John for a moment John did not ask
about tbe folks up country, but the ac
quaintance told about them, nevertheless.
Mr. Hatch had installed Mrs. Turner as
housekeeper, and both had applied for
divorces. Mr. Hatch said that they would
be married after the fall term of court, and
the neighbors were disposed to call it all
right John said that if they did ha was
sure that he and Eleanor would not object

IS not only a distressing complalntof
itself, but, by causing tha blood to
become "depraved and the system en
feebled, is the parent of innumerable
maladies. That Ayers Sarsaporllla
is the best cure for Indigestion, even
when complicated with Liver Complaint,
is proved by the following testimony
from Mrs. Joseph Lake, of Brockwaj
"Liver complaint and indigestion
made my life a burden and came near
ending my existence. Fcr more than
four years I suffered untold agony, was
reduced almost to a skeleton, and hardly
had strength to drag myself about All
kinds of food distressed me, and only
the most delicate could be digested at
oil. Within the time mentioned several
Sbycicians treated me without giving re
ef. Nothing that I took seemed to do
any permanent good until I commenced
the use of Ayers Sarsaparilla, which
has produced wonderful results. Soon,
after commencing to take the Sarsapa
rilla I could see an improvement in my
condition. My appetite began to return
and with it came the ability to dlges
all the food taken, my strength im
proved each day, and after a few
months of faithful attention to your?
directions. I found myself a well
woman, able to attend to all household
duties. The medicine has given me a
new lease of life."
