TVhat a meny week it has been,"tiekea off
br happy hearts, the moments passed" from
Monday morn till Saturday night.
Uonday evening the "Watson-Bproul wed
ding was solemnized in Trinity Episcopal
Church, and a charminjrly pretty one it was.
!Tbe altar of the church was most beauti
fully decorated with pure white flowers, the
iarrisi Illy predominatinc, and combined
Jwith the white robed minister, and the
''vested choir of 48 Toices seated in the chor
isters seats seemed appropriate attributes to
ithe bridal party, which, when formed for
the final words, represented the letter V, of
which the officiating clergyman was the
apex at the altar. Besides the maid of
bonor and best man eight maids and the
ushers were in attendance. The costuming
of the party was in the most artistic fashion,
the musio was delightful, soft and dreamy,
during the ceremony, and swelling into a,
perfect burst of melody as the sacred rites
were concluded, in which the chimes of the
church joined with m'erry peals. The re
ception which followed at the bride's home, on
Lincoln avenue, was In accordance with the
magnificence ot the wedding;
The residence was decorated In the regular
old English style, with oceans of holly arranged
Wf where it would be most effective and the sup
per was lit ior Lao gnus.
Following the brilliant wedding on Tuesday
afternoon, was the 4 o'clock tea given by Mrs.
E. 1L Ferguson to Miss Emma Juch, at which
a number of society ladles availed themselves
of the privilege, given by invitation, to meet
the falrprima.donna.They found her, suffering
as she was from a severe cold, charming in every
particular, dress, beauty and conversation, and
the event was one of the pleasantest In the
1 social annals of the city.
'Christmas day was celebrated by numerous
dinner parties and home gatherings all over the
-dtv, and also by two East End weddings, both
being solemnized in the East liberty Presby
terian Church. At 5 JO the nuptial march an
nounced the arrival of the first bridal party,
and Miss Annie D.Negley became Mrs. J. W.
A number or ushers and daintily aressed
'little flower girls preceded the bride, wbo was
"escorted by ber uncle to the radiant altar,
where the groom and his best man awaited. A
reception was held immediately alter the cere
monies at the home of the bride's mother,
where intimate friends congratulated tbe happy
At 730 tbe secondbridalparty was announced
and Miss Susie Parker and Mr. Marlon F. Hlp-
pie assumed tbe vows of holy matrimony.
'Thursday and Friday afternoons Mother
'Goose and Santa Clans received the various
'members of the Goose family and entertained
delighted audiences sit the Bljoa. Tbe panto
nine which was given to benefit the .Newsboys'
Home was one of tbe greatest successes ever
achieved by amateurs.
Never has the Bijou been favored with such
an aristocratic company of players, such elab
orate dressing or such fashionable audiences.
The costumes worn by the little folks were
superb, and some of the modlsts' bills will be
immense, for no expense was snared by the
Indulgent parents. In spite of nervousness and
lootlight frenzy tbe little ones acquitted them
selves admirable in.thelrvarious roles, and con
gratulations are In order to them, also to the
-vocalists who so kindly loaned their voices for
the occasion and sang the roles so charmingly.
Withal the pantomime was a great financial
.and social success, much to tbe gratification of
the ladies wbo were in charge of It and to tbe
Board ot Managers of tbe Newsboys' Home,
who will receive the nroceeds.
"Thursday evening Mrs. John 5. Hays gave a

Iter. T. t!. Davis, married Prof. J. Warren
.Irytle, of the Pittsburg Academy. Tbe Second
Avenue Welsh Presbyterian Church was the
placed selected for the solemn Jltes, and six
ushers attended the pair.
Tbe opera was a great attraction all through
tbe week, but tbe evenings the programmes of
vhichwere graced with Emma Juch'aname
drew the largest audiences, as would be ex
pected. Friday evening, especially, was notable
for lovely ladies and exquisite toilets. Tak
ing it all tbe way through tbe past week has
:been a continual round of gayety.
Resolutions are in order and thousands of
them will probably be made and broken this
week. New Year's Day will be spent very
tquletly in the city. No receiving will be done
to speak of, in fact none at all is known of at
the present writing.
The custom is dead in every city in the
United States excepting Washington, where
officially, tbe ladies are obligated to hold re
ceptions. What a tempest in a teapot Mrs.
Harrison has created, by the way, in placing
herdaughter. Mrs. McRee, in bet place on tbe
receiving programme, as, owing to her sister's
death, she will not appear, thus giving Mrs.
McKee, who has no official rank whatever, pre
cedence over tne vice xresiuenvs wue ana ail

The unwritten law of social life at tbe Cani-

the husband to the wife, and this departure
from "what has been" is not accepted grace

Washington-, December 28. Arrange

.Department for the fitting of tbe two new
vessels recently adde'd to the navy, the
Charleston and Baltimore, with tbe proper
complements of men. The Charleston is
now at Mares Island, Cal. There are not
enough men by about 100. on the Pacific
coast to give the ship her full allowance,
and It will probably be necessary to send
part of the ere" overland. This is very ex
pensive and will be a heavy drain on the
it was at first thought that arrangements
could be made for sending tbe men down to
the Isthmus of Panama from New York by
mail steamer, and then transter them across
the narrow strip ot land to .tbe Charleston.
This wonld be a much cheaper process, but
it was found that the mail steamer company
would not take tbe men until late In Janu
ary, and so the scheme was abandoned. The
Baltimore will receive ber complement in
about ten days, and will then steam down
from Philadelphia to Norfolk to receive her
last touches.

The above are the theatrical attractions for
this week.
There is a very big scheme on foot to give
Pittsburgers a great spectacular show in the
summer time. Mr. James Collins, repre
senting a New York syndicate comprising
P. T. Barnum, J. A. Bailey, Imre Kiralfy
and A. A. Stewart, is now in this city, and
is prepared to lay the foundations for the
novel enterprise.
Mr. Collins said yesterday: "The idea of
the New Tors syndicate which I represent
is to give Pittsbnr? ers what they have had
to go hitherto to New York to see, a grand
open air spectacle such as the Fall of Baby
lon. A great many Pittsburgers have no
doubt seen that wonderful show at St.
George's, Btaten Island. But the syndicate
does not intend or desire to go into this enter
prise alone; it seeks tbe co-operation of the
business men, hotelkeepers and others wbo
would reap profit from tbe crowds which such
a show is likely to attract to tbe city.
Tbe policy of tbe syndicate would be to adver
tise tbe spectacle far and wide for 200 miles
aronnd Pittsburg, run excursions from sur
rounding towns, and make it an attraction for
Western Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio and West
"Spectacles like tbe 'Fall of Babylon,' 'Rome
Under Nero' and the "Conquest ot .Mexico
have proven marvelously successful elsewhere,
and 'Rome Under Nero Is now the great feat
ure ot Barnum's show which has captured Lon
don. We intent, to give tbe spectacle for a
season ot six weeks, beginning in July. This
week I intend to sound the business men of
this city on the subject, and, If they respond
favorably, Pittsburg will have a spectacular
exhibition next summer that will astonish the
Mr. Collins Is a well-known manager and a
prominent member ot tbe Order of Elks in
New York City. For the present he is stay
ing at the St. Charles Hotel
The influenza has attacked grand opera,
Miss McNichol, ot the Juch Company, was un
able to sing in "Maritana" yesterday afternoon
owing to an attack of the imported dissase,
La Grippe, and an understudy had to struggle
in her place with a book in her hand.
To-morrow evening Dion Boucicault's famous
melodrama "After Dark" will begin a week's
representation at the Bijou Theatre. ''After
Dark" is written by Boucicault, written at his
best time, and it has the beat of his stage
knowledge combined with the excellent judg
ment and management of its present producer,
Mr. William A. Brady, and the result hat been
one of tbe most successful productions of the
present decade. The plot Is one of these sub
stantial -ones which will not die so long
as melodrama lives. London life and England's
great metropolis is the scene of its action. It
contains effects that, perhaps occasionally used
in other pieces, are neither So effectively in
troduced In them nor so legitimately worked.
In the years gorfe by "After Dark" was consid
ered a great play. It la still a great play of its
kind, and Its kind - is one of which many for
tunes have been made lately, as the litho
graphs inform the city, and few pieces have
been so strongly and well Illustrated, there are
several thrilling situations, giving an oppor
tunity for great scenic effects, which the man
agement have gotten up with tbe best of
care. There are to be some surprises tor
the audience. Indeed, from what is
said at the theater, "After Dark" is to be
a big, well-put-on, strongly sensational
play. The representation Is one of these Im
mense successes that playtbe larger cities only,
and come direct to Pittsburg from tbe Grand
Opera House, New York City, and at the close
of the engagement here, return to the Metro
polls for another extended engagement. The
same cost, scenery and effect used during its
original run will be seen here. Every scenio
act is the work of Harley Merry. Tbe dramatic
portion of tbe cost is exceedingly strong and Is
headed by Mr. William A. Brady, an actor of
much experience. MISS Laura Biggie, a band
some actress and a fine soprano singer, Is the
leading lady. The especially Interesting feat
ure is In the London Music Hall scene where
the troupe of vaudevilles appear. Bobby Gay
lor, well known and popular here, Marie Rene,
a charming dacseuse.and Kelly and Murphy,
exhibition boxers. '
AT the Grand Opera House Hoyt's comedy
"A Hole In the Ground," commences Monday,
December 80, and contlnnes through the week,
with tbe Satnrday and New Year's Day
To amuse full houses is the author's ambi
tion. Tbe company is said to be more than
competent to put the active movements in tbe
oddities of the farce. Miss Katie Hart is
possessed of.agillty as astounding as her face is
pretty. . She (rives so complete an exhibition of
dancing it is said that only somersaults seem
lacking to fill out tbe extensive circle ot her
gyrations. But Miss Hart is comely", graceful
and filled from tbe top of her neat little
head to the tips of ber little feet with snap
anddasb. Mr. Frank'Lawton is the Station
Agent, and as comically exacting as to tbe
rules of the road and railroad regulations as
ever. Harry O. Stanley as the Tramp Is a fit-
uog luuuncr ui jcur;g Aieuarus, ana resem
bles him in face and form so closely that many
take him to be tbe same man, Mr. Julian
Mitchell Is the baseball mascot.
The singing of Miss Maud Williams Is said to
be a pleasing feature ot tbe performance, and
her sweet voice is heard to good advantage.
The following editorial, taken fromjhe New
York Mirror, bits the mark: The reprehensible
habit tfhleb American andlences have of leav
ing theaters and concert balls before the con
clusion of a performance was emphatically re
buked by a prominent Western star last week,"
About ten mlnntes before the fall of the cur
tain some ot the auditors began to
make their sortie, which so an
noyed the star that he summarily
stopped the performance. The remainder ot
tbe audience took the hint and kept their seats
till tbe close ot the performance. The rude
ness of audiences in this respect has become
such a chronic offense that it has been sug
gested that tbe orchestra, jia in England and
tbe colonies, should dlsmiM.the audience with
a National anthem. It certainly is a nuisance
that ought to be abated, and any means that
wonld effect that reform wonld be hailed with
delight by the players.

The many friends of Mr. JohnW.Beatty
were afforded a private view of his three new
paintings at the rooms of the Pittsburg Art
School during 'the week. Tbe .titles of these
pictures, which are the most important works
he has produced this year, are "Mohican
Bluffs." "Outside the Village" and "A Black
Island Road.
Me. Wils. Pobteb has a painting at Boyd's,
the motive of which is not very clear. The
scene is laid in a garden, in which are a num
ber of soldiers, apparently skirmishers, one of
whom, standing behind a bush near by an old
stone gate post, is engaged in lazily loading his
musket. Close by stands a young negro wear
ing a decidedly frightened expression on bis
face, not apparently without some sufficient
reason, since bis hat has been lifted from his
bead and has ah enormous rent torn in It, pre
sumably by a rifle bullet while upon the stone
post behind him Is a splash ot color which
would seem to Indicate that the battle was be
ing fought with eges in place of cold lead, and
indeed the lackadaisical looklngsoldlerappears
to regard the whole affair rather as a good joke
than in any sense a serious matter.
TBE painting by L. Walter Elsenlobr, after
an original by A Mauve, at present on exhibi
tion in tbe GIespie gallery, is a very pleasing
picture) And although but a copy of another
man's work the artist has shown considerable
knowledge and technical skill In its produc
tion. Ot course, in conception and composi
tion, it can only eqnal the original painting,
and In color and general arrangement ot tone
it will probably fall somewhat below It; still,
in tbe matter of handling, much ot the credit
is due to tbe artist who executed the work,
aside from the merit of the picture copied. The
subject represented is a stretch of level land
scape with a straight row ot tall and slender
tsees leading from the foreground Into the dis
tance She landscape, however, is subordinate
in interest to a flock of sheep, that with the
shepherd form the real interest of the picture.
In tne color scheme of the work, coo grays and
grav-toned greens are seen to prevail, and Ibe
antet subdued effect produced fa very salt atd
With regard to the picture which Mr. H. S
Stevenson exhibits at Gillespie's this week.it
is not putting it too strongly' to say that It is
equal, or perhaps sunerlor. to any woi;k that he
has ever shown. It has considerable strength
in composition, is fairly well handled, and is of
very good color; but It is In its completeness as
a worn oi art mat its superiority to nis usual
style isseen. Tbe scene represented is one In
the bay-making season, and tbo subject con
sists of a stretch of level meadow with a fringe
of picturesque trees In tne distance, the
pleasing and varied outlines of which form one
otthe most striking features of the picture,
Tbe harvesters at work in the field, And tbe
wagon with its load ot new-made bay combine
to lend life and interest to tbe scene; and it is
in the positions and actions of the figures that
tbe chief merit of the picture lies. The land
scape appears to have been painted with a fair
degree of fidelity to nature, but, of course, the
arrangement of tbe. figures depends wholly
upon tbe judement of tbe artist In so much,

One of the 15 regiments composing the
Pennsylvania Reserve Corps was of light"
artillery, consisting of eight batteries, but
one of the latter was from Western Penn
sylvania. It was Battery B and wasfor-
ganized at Mount Jackson, Lawrence coun
ty. It was more generally known as
"Cooper's Battery," Captain J. H. Cooper
baying been its commander (or over three
years; Captain William McClelland, of
this city, served with the battery during its
four years' service, first as a private, and
commander'at its muster-out, after the close
of the war, He is very much pleased with
the following letter to Lieutenant James A.
Gardner, of New Castle, Pa., from their
former brigade commander, General C. S.
Yours of first inst I received from my
brother on my return from Europe, a week
ago, and a day or two after the copy of your
address at Gettysburg came to hand. Their
receipt has given me much pleasure, as prov
lngtbat lhave not been wholly forgotten, by my
old companions in arms, though so many years
have now passed since wo parted.
As Hook over the official worts of the dif
ferent commanders, now published, and see
how much many of them make of small mat
ters to tbe glorification ot themselves and'their
commands, I sometimes thlnt that In my en
deavors to confine my reports to a simple state
ment of facts. I may have failed in securing to
those who served with me all the credit tbey
deserved. At that time we bad no: idea that
these reports would be given to the public.
They were supposed to be solely for the in
formation ot our Immediate commanders. Had
I been writing tbem for the publio I should
have said in writing what I often have In con
versation, that Cooper's Battery was tbe most
perfeot ideal organization of fighting
men I ever came across. Those wbo
originally composed it seemed to have bnt
one object: to put down the rebellion, and then
go home. Of soldiering, as such, they bad no
idea. No military organization that was not
composed of such a high standard ot men
as your battery originally was, both intel
lectually and morally, could have been con
trolled, or made of any use, without an enforce
ment of discipline, to yon unknown. My own
appreciation of your battery was shown by my
retaining it In my brigade so long as I could :
one ot the three only out of the U batteries I
bad on joining tbe First Corps.
I have read your address with much pleasure.
1 think you are about right in your description
of the part Battery "B" played In the battle of
Gettysburg. Could I have done it by word of
mouth I should like to hate added some Inci
dents that more fully Illustrated tbe kind of
voluntary discipline that prevailed In the bat
tery, and the perfect composure that always
cnaracterizea uapum uooper,
I hope you will remember me most warmly to
Captain Cooper and to all who may care to
know that their old commander for nearly three
years still has a very warm feeling for Battery
fl, First Pennsylvania Artillery.
Again thanking you for the trouble you took
in hunting ma up, I remain, yours truly,

From n Soldier' Home.
"An Inmate" ot the Soldiers' Home at Min
nehaha, Minn., tells something about these
national and Btate institutions in tbe loilowlng
letter, which wlll.be continued:
-Sometime after the great BebelUonhad
passrd by the philanthropic statesmen at Wash
ington, grateful for services rendered the na
tion and foreseeing the probable condition ot
want that many of the veterans would be re
duced to as tbey drew near the end of lite,
took measures to erect and maintain national
eleemosynary institutions, or Soldiers' Homes,
at different points, where such veterans as
were In want and could not maintain them
selves could be sheltered and properly cared
for during tbe short time yet allotted to thetn.
"Tnese national Homes were soon tilled to
their utmost capacity, andhundreds, nay thou
sands, of veterans who bad already furnished
tbe evidence required were waiting thejednc
tion by death of tbe numbers of their oomrades
therein, that they, too, might enjoy, for a short
time, the protection from dire want afforded
by the sheltering arms of these Homes.
"The crowded condition of these National
Homes was known, too, and understood by
tome ot tbe philanthropic State legislators ot
diifereut States, and State Homes were organ
ized by these legislatures! and among others
theSiateof Minnesota passed necessary Uwb
to erect and maintain, at some point within its
Commonwealth, a Home for Its own citizen vet
erans, regardless ot where their enlistment had
been. They, however, were required to be
actnal residents of tbe State.
"An executive board and other required offl- J
cials were appointed, anu a location ior tne
Home (to be erected) was songbt for. Offers
came in from different towns, and induce
ments were held out by each to erect the Home
in Its vicinity. All these offers and induce
ments were fully considered by the Board of
Control, ana all these different places were vis
ited and examined by a committee appointed
for that purpose. All were found to have pe
culiar advantages, and none were In' the least
objectionable." '
