The Grand Old Sire No.w 
Beneath the Sod 


At Ashland Where He Achieved 
the Great Success 

That Made His Name Famous the 
Wide World Over. 

A Most Remarkable Example of a 
Sire Whose Get 

Bred on and Sired and Produced 
Extreme Speert. 

He Sired Jay Eye See and the Dam 
of Nancy Hanks. 

Breedei’S Slaving One Hundred 
and Thirty-Eight 

Descendents Tliat Occupy Places 
in the List. 

Dlctator'H Ooath Wa.s Kept Very Quiet, siiitl 
Ttfl Annooncernent Will Ocoaslon Genenil 
.*?urprtHe— He Was Thirty Yearn of Ag;e 
When Death Came. 

Another of those good old sires that 
hajo immortalized Lexington is dead, 
Dictator, one of the grandest sons of 
Hambletonian 10, now reporet in his 
linal resting jtlaco beneath the sod at 

The ,gi! at son of the Hero licster, 
passed, an^ ' at A'sliland at .'..Ai o'eloek 
I'hursciay evening. Strange 'to say, 
Tat»t'h(’NVs of the death of Uici-ator gain- 
ed little publicity, and to thousands 
. here in Lexington this will be the first 
ifnnounceinent. Dictator had been sick 
for some time with acute iflllaraation of 
the Ixiwels, and it was to the ravages 
of this malady that his death was due. 

Dictator was buried yesterday on the 
lawn in front of the stable where he 
had been domiciled since ho was 
brought to Ashland. 

One by one the pioneer sires that 
infused new blood into the trotting fam- 
ily are droitpuig olT, and the death of 
Dictator completes a trio of famous 
cquinoH that have passed away at ripe 
old age during this spring. Har- 
old, the sire of Maud S. and of Lord 
Uussell, the sire of the mighty Krem- 
lin, reached his twenty-ninth year only 
this winter, and like a seared leaf ho 
withered away ere sjiring had arrived. 
Close upon the death of Harold came 
the nows that Primrose, one of the 
grandest old producers in the stud 
book, was no more, having died within 
a stone’s throw of Harold’s grave. 

Dictator had passed his thirtieth 
year, but old ago had set its indelible 
mark on Jiim and with the approach of 
summer ho gave up a life that had 
been well spent in bettering the trot- 
ting turf, and in adding to the glory 
of the name his sons had already 
made one of universal fame. 

1 n i-oputation there are few horses 
that rank with Dictator. A horse of 
hU])orb breeding, and of a small and 
handsome conformation; a set of legs 
that wore unrivaled, and a head in 
which wore set eyes of almost hu- 
man intelligence; he was favored by 
nature and by ancestry, and was it 
strange that his get should have trot- 
ted and bi-cd on? Dictator's fame is 
but in its infancy. As the years roll 
on the reputation and name of the' 
gi'and old brother to Dc.vter will o.x- 
pand and become broa«lcr. Periodical 
mootings at which his name will Ihj 
eulogized will not be required to keep 
tho moss from his name. 

Ho has erected a monument to him- 
self that is more lasting than a struc- 
ture of stone or marble. In his get lie 
the dominating spirit that will make 
tho name of Dictator one of e iual rank 
with that of his immortal sire. Like 

George Wilkes and Hambletonian 10, 
what occurs after his death will prove 
that although the “good a man does is 
oft interred with his bones," in the 
equine tribe that epigram does not hold 
true. His sons and daughters will ren- 
der him oven greater in death than he 
was in life. The future is brilliant 
with grand possibilities for the name 
of Dictator. 

Although a son of Hysdyk’s Hamble- 
tonian, Dictator was more of a Star in 
conformation, his dam having been that 
famous mare Clara, by American Star. 
Clara was a groat lu’oducer. She threw 
Dexter 2:17i, Alma 2:28i. Astoria 2:2!il-, 
and the dams of -Vda De Clare 2:26^ 
and American 2:22;. . Dictator, Dexter, 
Astoria and Alma were full sisters and 
brothers. From this it will be seen 
that tho blood of Clara nicked best 
when intermingled w^h that of tho 
Hero of Chester. 

At tho time of his death Dictator 
was tho sire of forty trotterh in tho 2:20 
list and live pacers. Tho fact that Dic- 
tator was wonderfully i) 0 tent in the 
way of siring trotters is demonstrated 
by the fact that the daughters of thirty- 
one dilTorent sires produced the forty- 

Evangeline, 2:115. In addition to thus, | 
ho is the sire of Dirocl. 2:0.’j;. | 

Among the best of Dictator's sons that ! 
have trotters in tho list a:'o the follow- : 

Director, 2:17, who got Direr;. 2;i'' I. 

Kvangcline, 2:135, Directum, 2:11-:, and 
others: Pretender, the siso of eleven: 

Phallas, with eleven to hi.-, credit: Col. 

Hambrick with live, and a number of 

Dictator was a sire of dams of trot- ; 
ters, having gotten nineteen marcs that ' 
threw twenty five trotters and two 

As a siri- of dams, however. Dicta- 


tor’s fame lies ehielly in the fact- that' 

he got Nancy Lee, the dam of peerless I 

Nancy Hank-:. 2:04, but he also aired TJlC E.X-bWTCtavy Jlilkcs a Dillac-

New Orleans, May 27.— Miss Davis, 
tho daughter of the late Jefferson 
Davis, and tho Richmond committee 
appointed to escort the remains of Mr. 
Davis to Richmond, arrived this morn- 
ing. The governoi's of Georgia and 
Alabama arc in the party. 

Early this morning the body of cx- 
President Davis was transferred to a 
magnificent oak casket, with heavy 
brass trimmings. Tho cedar coffin in 
which the remains originally rested 
was returned to the vault, and it was 
closed with a marble slab, upon which 
was a fac siiuUo of the signature of 
lefferson Davis. 

Transfer was made early and pri- 
vately at tho family's request. The 
body was naturally decomposed, but in 
fair preservation and the face \vas re- 

The guard from the army of North- 
ern Virginia Veterans remained at tho

the list. When mated with daughters 
of Pilot, Jr., he got two in tho list in 
the shape of that combination horse 
fay-Eye-Soc, 2:10 trotting and 2:0 H 
pacing, and that game son of Crop, 
Code 2:22i. In the way of speed .lay- 
Eyc-Sco is the fa.stcst of his get. 

With daughters of (icorge Wilkes 
ho was never successful in getting 
trotters until the past sea-son, when 
Twinkle 2:25i, and Ghatsworth 2:24}, 
both out of George M' likes marcs, ap- 
peared on the tui-f and ontei-ed the 
list. From this it may bo that tho 
future will prove that equincs result- 
ing from this cross arc trotters cajjablc 
of entering tho charmed circle Even 
when matched with a daughter of 
Harold a ti'otter was the result of tin: 
union, in the shai c of the ti-otting 
stallion Orator 2:2(i. 

Dictator sired twenty sons that have 
gotten fifty-eight ti-otters and eight 
pacers, tho greatest of the number Ix!- 
ing that game race horse Director, 2:17, 
who ha.s sirod sixteen trotters and one 
pacer. La,st year Director sent out the 
best 2-ycar-old colt and l-ycar-old lilly 
of tho year in- Directum, 2:111. and

this little whim ho was gratified, and 
enjoyed the rather costly syruj) to his 
heart's content. Dictator was a great 
favorite with the McDowell family and 
his loss will bo sincerely mourned.

The frciglit business of tlic K. t 
railroad shows a very handsome in- 
crease for the past three months. 
Quito a number of new saw mills have 
been started along the line of the road, 
;ind the quantity of lumber, ties, staves, 
tan bark, etc., awaiting shipment is 
so large that there is a scarcity of oars. 
Tlie iirice of ties has rooontly jumped 
from 2(1 to 35 cents. The passenger 
Iraffie is also steadily increasing.

Every indication points to the fact 
that the assembly this year w^ll be 
more largely attended than ever be- 
fore. Applications are coming in from 
all directions for the handsome illus- 
trated programme which has just been 
issued. As tlie people read that pro- 
gramme they grow very enthusiastic. 
For eloquent and helpful lectures by 
men of National reputation, for splen- 
did music, for unique and novel enter- 
tainments, it has never lieen surpassed 
in the history of the Lexington Chau- 

There will not bo a dry hour from the 
first to the last. Many persons in tho 
towns surrounding Lexington are 
planning for littlecoramunities of tents 
under tho amjilo shade of W oodland 
Park. Nothing can be more delight- 
ful than for a company of congenial 
friends to club together and come and 
spend tlie ten days of the Ciiautauqua 
Assembly enjoying tent life. It can 
be done at a very small expense,' and 
the outing will not only bo a licalth 
giving entcrpi-iso. but will bring large 
intellectual rc.vard. 

Tho reading and impoi-sonation by 
Mr. I.,ocke Richardson will be dully 
worth tlie price of a season ticket. Ho 
is the prince of readers; he has at his 
tongue's end tWenty-eiglit of Shake- 
speare’s plays, and takes all the char- 
acters with a fidelity and ease which is 
simply remarkable. No man is more 
l»pular in tlic first circles of England 
and with the literary people of the 
large cities of tliis country tlianMr. 
Richardson. Ho is a high-priced 
luxury, but we muFi have liim. 

The social atinosplicro of tho Keii- 
•jiicky Chautauqua is more dolightful 
tlian that found at any other Chaiitaii- 
ipia in tho land. The tent lifq there is 
made a iici-foCt fascination. The little 
lunches whicn are spread before the 
tents at noon oV in the evening, about 
wliich gather tlio talent on tlie pro- 
gramme of the Cliautuaqua, or the 
friends who are invited from tlic city 
or from surrounding towns. “The 
feast of reason and the flow of soul,” 
tho jolly laugh: the brilliant repartee. 
All these leave memories which linger 
from one Chautauqua to another. 
Lecturers who have visited most of the 
Chautauquas established in this coun- 
try say that noiyhere do they lind such 
charming social atmosphere as is found 
at Lc.xington. 

Dr. W. L. Davidson, seems to have 
surpassed himself this year. If there 
is a man in this country wlio knows 
better how to plan a programme t» meet 
tlie wants of the masses, and wlioii it is 
planned, to carry it througli witli cn- 
tliuiasm and without failure, wo liavo 
never found him. Jlis many friends 
will give him a royal welcome wlien lie 

The musical features of the Chau- 
tauque assembly for the session, are 
beyond all quostioiq tlie very best 
which have ever been otTered to citi- 
zens of this city. Roger’s celebrated 
Goshen band is not excelled by any 
organization of its kind in this coun- 
try. The famous Luttemau Sextette, 
from Stockholm, Sweeden, will prove 
to be a perfect revelation to the peo- 
ple. The Ariel Ladies Sextette have 
filled 200 nights in the past season in 
the larger towns and cities of this 
country, and almost every whore have 
been roingaged for next season, so 
dcliglitod were Uic people witli their 
evening’s ciilertainmont. Those iino 
attractions with Miss .Margaret 
Goet .-, of Chicago, a charming soprano, 
and Miss Marguerite Wuortz, the 
splendid violinist, will till with de- 
lightful harmony, the bom's as they 

Tho special days of tho assembly will 
bo of rare interest, and of course will 
attract thousands of people. Fourth 
.Inly will be a very groat occasion. 

Dr. .1. William Jones, the fighting 
chapUn of tho Confederate army, j 
man of eloquence and great liumor, 
will speak of the boys as he kndw them 
on the Confederate side. 

Dr. A. J. 1 ’aimer, tho matchless ora- 
tor, who has tlirillod witli his eloquence 
iudiences in all parts of tho country, 
will toil of tho “Die-iio-inoros,’' a com- 
pany of Christian boys who went out 
from Olio of tlic leading colleges of the 
country and took as tlieir battle song 
tho well-known hymn, “We are Going 
Home to Die" no More.” They were in 
consequence nicknamed the “Die-no- 
morcs. Ail i)ut tliree of the company 
fell on the battlefield. Dr. Palmer, one 
of the three, and the youngest in the 
Union army, will tell of tho struggles 
through which they [lassed. The day 
will be one long to bo remembered. 

These, with the oratorical contest 
participated in by the boys from the 
colleges of Kentucky, and the brilliant 
Columbian spectacular entertainment 
with grand costumes and rare stage 
effects, on the closing night of the 
assembly, constitute a magnificent 
programme worthy of patronage and 
certain to attract it.

csis, As might be suspected, for the two 
ladies have had far more in common 
than most people would suppose. In 
the matter of early training the advan- 
tages were greatly in favor of tlie Amer- 
ican kidy. In the aids to culture tliat 
mere wealth could supply Julia Ward 
was quite equal to the Princess Victoria, 
while in all other things — native talent, 
intellectual parentage, early association 
with eminent men and opj)ortunities for 
social development— she was vastly su- 
perior Many women have had wealth, 
many more talent and the acquaintance 
of groat thinkers, hut in no ot’ier Amer- 
ic.en woman, and in very few women of 
any time or country, have these been 
united as in Julia Ward Howe. 

Her father, while without literary pre- 
tensions. was a man of rare business 
sense and liberality. Her mother was a 
woman of marked intellectual and poetic 
powers, and herliusband a noted philan- 
thropist and scientific student. Her first 
teachers were men of eminence in their 
specialties, and for 40 3 ’cars she enjoyed 
the acquaintance of nearly nil the great 
wri ters of England and America. Samuel 
Ward was a successful New York banker, 
and Jnlia Rush Ward, his wife, at ono 
time atttilncd some fame as a poetes.s. 
Thoir daughter Julia was born May 27, 
1811). in New York cily. Her early edu- 
cation was remarkably thorough and 
for that day liberal. Her tutor in Ger- 
man and Latin was Dr. Josepli G. Cogs- 
well, and she not only excelled in these 
studies, but at a later i criod loiinied to 
speak fluently in Italian, French and 
Greek and was deeply versed in the philo- 
sophical works issued in those languages. 
•\t an early age she wrote poems and 
plays for children and ijroduced a few 
philosoi,liical es.says which were read to 
a private circle of friends. Her father’s 
house was then the i-cndezvous of the 
literar.v and social giants of tlie time, 
and the effect upon the impressible mind 
of the talented girl may easily bo im- 

Beautiful, wealthy and talented, she 
of did not lack for suitors, but 
from her indifference it seemed that she 
was destined to a life of single blessed- 
ness and literary labor. But at the age 
of 23 she came to this citj' and took her 
place at once and natuiallj’ in the bril- 
liant circle which inclndod Emerson, 
Snmner, Phillips, JIargaret Fuller and 
many more, and there she met and loved 
Dr. yamuel Gridlej’ Howe, whose fame 
is only second to her own. Tliey were 
married in 1843 and at once entered on 
a long tour in Europe. 

At this time it seemed that the fame 
of Dr. Ho wo would completely over- 
shadow that ot ills talented wife, for he 
was nearly 18 j’ears her senior and al- 
ready celebrated. He was graduated 
from Brown universitj’ in 1821 and from 
the Harvard medical school in 1824 anfl 
went immediately to Greece, where he 
was surgeon in the Greelc war for inde- 
pendence, then organized the medical 
staff of the urniy and founded a colony 
on the isthmus of Corinth. In 1831 ill 
hcaltli compelled him to leave Greece, 
and ho devoted himself to aiding the 
struggling Poles, in which work lie was 
arrested in Prussia and imprisoned for 
sevcFil weeks. He founded the Massa- 
chusetts schools for the blind and the 
idiotic, edited an abolition paper, went 
again to Greece to aid the Crotan.s and 
served as one of President Grant's com- 
missioners to flan to Domingo. But to most 
Americans his fame is inseparably con- 
nected with tlie story ot Laura Bridgman, 
the uiifortuiiatB in whom it is scarcely 
an exaggeration to say that he developed 
an intellect and a eoul. At the age of 2 
years the child lost sight and hearing 
through scarlet fever, and consequently 
soon forgot liow to speak, j'et in thai 
(leaf, dumb and blind girl, to whom ev- 
ery .avenue of laiowlcdge .save feeling 
was closed. Dr. Ilnwe discovered a keen 
intellect. Ho patiently experimented 
till lie had invented methods of com- 
mnnicatioii and taiiglit her to read, 
sew. plaj’ tl'.e piano and communicate 
her ideas. Her history is an affecting 
tribute to her teacher. In all the an- 
nals of htunaiiitarian sciciice there is no 
success to compare with the development 
of Laura Bridgnnin-

Well Known Women In Kurope Who Own j 

What He Has Been Doin;' For the Agricul- 
ture Department. 

[Special CorroppomlcnceO 

tVASiiiNOTON.May 2." . — Colonel Charles 
J. Mnrpliy, tlie special agent of the de- 
partment of agriculture, who lias been 
teacliing Europeans the value of corn 
bread as an article of food, was hero a 
few days ago and told an interesting 
story concerning his “missionary” work 
in thiit line. Colonel Mnrpliy, it will be 
observed, has an Irish name, but he looks 
like a German, iiiaj- be explained, i 
be talks the German language with great 
fluency. His big, sliaggy head, snow 
white hair and fraiil! and placid counte- 
nance give him tlie air of a good natured 
burgomaster. He is a most entertaining 
talker, and it is no wonder that he lias 
interested the Germans, the Danes and 
the Belgians in the subject of “Ameri- 
can maize.” 

Colonel Murphy, who is familiarly 
known, to the department of agriculture- 
as “Corn Bread" Murphy, first engaged 
in his missionary work some 10 years 
ago. “It struck mo as rather surpris- 
ing,” he says, “tliat Indian corn and its 
food products, so well and favorably 
known in this country, were practically 
niiknown to the people of Europe. The 
clicapness of such food, as well as its ex- 
cellence, suggested to my mind tlie ad- 
vantages it might possess over food pre- 
pared from the native cereals of Enroiie. 

I began studying plans for its introduc- 
tion and concluded that popular exhiiii- 
tions in the principal cities of Eurojie 
might accomplish the purpose.” 

Thereujion Colonel Murphy 'tried to 
interest various American boards of 
trade ami agricultural societies in the 
enterprise, and failing in this he finally 
went aliroad in a private capacitj’. He 
v.'as accompanied by ins wife, and to- 
gotlier tliey organized cooking schools 
and corn exhibitions in various F.uro- 
pean cities and every wliero explained to 
the people bow iialatable and nutritious 
were the food products of American 
maize. Tlieir work finally attracted the 
attention of tlie department of agricul- 
ture, and about tliree years ago Mr. 
Murpliy was appointed a special agent 
of our government and was comiiiis- 
sionod to carry on the work in his offi- 
cial capacitj'. 

“Tliis made the work easier,” says the 
colonel, “and since then as an agent of 
the government I have been able to ap- 
proacli foreign officials tliat I could not 
otherwise reacli.” 

Colonel Mnrpliy and his wife liave di- 
rected tlieir missionary efforts mainly 
toward the Germans within the past two 
years, and so great,has been their success 
that more than a score of mills for grind- 
ing American corn have been erected and 
are now in operation in various parts of 
the empire. At least a lialf dozen mills 
of tills sort liave been erected in Berlin 
and its iinniediato vicinity, and the Ger- 
man govcriimeiit recently decided to is- 
sue to its soldiers a daily ration of “Mur- 
pliy broad.” Tliis bread is made of two- 
tliirds portion of rye and one-tliird of com- 
meal and is called in the official record 
“Murphy brodt.” 

The German soldiers are usually sup- 
plied witli rye bread, but the authorities 
after careful tests concluded that a 
bread made of jiart rye and part corn- 
meal was much better and quite as 
cheap. The result of the official recog- 
nition of coriimeal bj" the German gov- 
ernment lias been its increased use in 
various parts of the empire, especiallj' 
among the middle classes. 

During the Russian famine two years 
ago several shiploads of American com 
were sent to the region bordering on the 
Black sen, and Colonel JIurphj', by di- 
rection of the department, isent an agent 
there to ai l in the distribution of the 
corn and to teach the natives how to 
prepare it for food. Tlie work was suc- 
cessful. and not only were the famine 
stricken iieasants relieved by the timely 
and appropriate gift, but in their adver- 
sity they learned the excellence of Amer- 
ican maize as a food product, and a de- 
mand lor its importation has sprung up 
in that jxirtion of Europe. 

Colonel Murphy held several corn expo- 
sitions in I lie United Kingdom, and esjxi- 
cially in Edinburgh did he meet with 
success. The English, the Irish and the 
Scotch have long been familiar with 
American maize to a slight extent at 
least, so that no “missionary” work was 
needed among them, as it was in other 
parts of Europe. “In Ireland,” says 
Colonfel Murphy, “cornmeal mush in the 
form of ‘stirabout,’ a.s it is called, is 
largely used. 'When several shiploads 
of meal were sent over during the fam- 
ine of 184S, the i easants at first refused 
it, but hunger soon drove them to its 
use. Since then it has slowly come into 
favor, though the potato is preferred 
when ])ientj’, in spite of the fact that 
corn is chtaijcr and more nourialiing. 

“The principal drawback to its use in 
Ireland as elsewhere in Europe is that 
the peasants do not know how to cook 
it. In Geriminj' tlie cooking is all done 
by the bakers, and no family makes its 
own bread. 'VVarm bread is practically 
unknown, and as corn bread isljest when 
it is warn) its sni)erior advantages ca))- 
not be fully appreciated under the exist- 
ing conditions. The bakfers, however, 
are learning this, and in Germany they 
now make it a point to deliver the corn 
bread freshly baked as soon as it comes 
Horn tbs oven.”

The Largest Circutntioii Kiio-ten to Modern 
CivilUntlon— Printed In 30-1 Languages 
and Dialects— Some Itcmarkable Statis- 
tics and Facts About the Word of God. 

(Special Correspondence.! 

New 'Yokk, May 2.3. — No work of 
greater magnitude is known to modern 
civilization than that involved in the 
circulation of the Holy Scriptures. How 
great it is is indeed impossible to state 
accnratelj’. It is so great that the so- 
cieties prosecuting it are no longer able 
to beep account even of the number of 
editions that h.ave been printed and pub- 
lished, and nothing like an estimate of 
the number of copies can be made. 
Some few figures of the work of these 
societies, however, are of groat interest 
as being a partial indication of the ex- 
tent of tl;e circulation that has been 
reacheil. Thus, (he British and Foreign 
Bible society of London, which is the 
oldest and largest society of the kind, re- 
ports that it has since its formation 
distributed 131,844,790 copies of the Bi- 
ble, the New Testament and of portions 
of the Scripture. 

T^ie American Bible societies (of which 
there are five) liave distributed over 60,- 
090,000 and kindred societies elsewhere 
more tlian 21,000,000, so that through 
tlicse channels alone there have been 
more than 213,000,000 copies placed in 
circulation. As was said, there are no 
means of estimating the numbers of oep- 

id (\) ( ) 14 ^ 5? ‘^3t ^

ies that have been printed and sold or 
given away by other publishers or agen- 
cies. The copies of Scripture circulated 
in heatl'.en lands in tlie jiresent centurj’ 
exceed in number all that were' in tlie 
world from Moses to Jfsirtiii Lutlier and 
arc more than double tiie oiitiro prodtic- 
tion of the prcs.s from tlie printing of the 
first Bil)le in 1450 to tlie era of Bible so- 
cieties in 1801. 

The Bible, or considerable portions of 
it, is printed in 304 different languages 
or dialects, so tliat there is hardly any 
portion of the entire globe wliich is not 
supplied with printed copies of the gos- 
pel in tiie language read by tlie inhabit- 

Tills printing and placing have in- 
volved the expenditure of many millions 
of dollars and the entire life work of 
many men of loai-ning and of business 
ability, but the result is bej’ond com- 
parison witli any other achievement of 
mankind even considered as a business 
matter alone. One strilring fart illns- 
trntes tliis. It is cited by Dr. Pinmer in 
a tract which ho w.'oto oitj“'IIovv to Use 
the Bibl He says Rmt in iho tldr- 
teeiilli century two arclies of London 
bridge cost £'25, and at tho same time 'a 
copy of tlio Bible, with a few explana- 
tory notes, cost £30. Tho real value of 
tlio money or its purcliasing power is 
seen by tiie comparison. In those days 
a labon'r’s: wages were oiilj’ ninoiience a 
week, S3 that the Bible cost the entire 
wages in money of a laboring man for 15 

In other words, tho Biiilc was tlien the 
most expensive book in tlio world, and 
one reason was tlia^ it was the largest 
book tlieii known and existed only in 
manuscript form. The fabnlons prices 
it formerly commanded continued to 
rule long after the invention of printing, 
but it is today the ciieapest book in the 
world. Tho entire Scriptures cau be 
bouglit for 25 cents in America and for 
sixpence in England and tlie New Testa- 
ment for 5 cents. In England, the book 
of St. John is printed and sold for a 

No one, however, need be without a 
Bible even if he has not a penny to siieiid 
for it. Any ono of tlie Bible societies 
will fr.niisli a copy to any person who 
can read, no matter wliethcr he can pay 
for it 01 - not— in fact, gi-eat and special 
efforts have liecn made repeated}}' to 
jilace a copy in each family in the ijnit- 
fd States, and in 16 years the American 
Bible society alone can.soil nearly 9,000,- 

000 families to be visited, and gave away 
more than 1 ,000,000 copies to those who 
jirofesseil to be unable to buy one, and in order to demonstrate that no 
distinction was proposed tlie society 
some years ago presented a handsome 
copy io each ono of the reigning mon- 
arclis and other chief magistrates of the 

One particnlarly interesting branch of 
the wor'a of tiie Bible societies has been 
the publication of copies prepared for 
the use of the blind. This is neces.sarily 
an expensive work, for tiie letters are 
raised on tiie paper instead of being 
printed in ink, but the books are sold be- 
low cost, so tliat the entire Scriptures 
pnblislied in tliis form is offered for sale 
at i-6 and tho New Testament for ^.1.50. 

There is also a large circulation of 
what isknown as the revised version, hut 
there are no facilities for staling how 
large, as tho societies which publisli tlieir 
hgures do not deal in it, and it is simply 
a business matter up to tlie present time. 
Ill addition to this version and the King 
James there is another standard v/ork 
liiiown as the Donay Bible, which is ac- 
cipted bj’ the Koinaii Catliolic clinrch 
and v. liicli has a largo circulation also. 
It is not large, however, in comparison 
with tlie Protestant versions, as it is 
only within comparatively few 'years 
tliat the church has encouraged tlie gen- 
eral reading of the Bible. And how 
large it is cannot bo stated, as thechurcli 
I'luiiorities and the Catholic publication 
locietics are averse to pulilishing any 

1 tatemenis in regard to it. The same is 
c!so ti ns with regard tc the Bible in use 
by the Greek Catholic church, which 
differs little from th§ Donay version.

[Special Correspondence.! 

London, May 18. — Among the features 
of tho present season in Europe is the 
newly developed crazo of women for 
owning race horses and racing stables. 
Mrs. Lapgtry is by no means the only 
memTber of her profession who has regis- 
tered her colors on the turf. Mile. Marsy, 
a particular!}’ brilliaut star of tho Com- 
edio Francaise at Paris, lias registered 
her colors under the pseudonym of the 
Count d'Arcy and possesses no less than 
seven horses wliich are favorably known 
on the French turf. 

Mile. Eraiiied'Alencon, wlio can scarce- 
ly be called a bona fide actress, since lier 
public appearances have been mainly at 
tho Paris Hippodrome and at circuses as 
the director of performing pigs, rabbits 
and small donkeys, has assumed for rac- 
ing purposes the name of the Count de 
Laiicon, a fact which has led to some 
correspondence between the stewards of 
tho Chantilly races and the Duke of Au- 
male, to whom the track belongs. The 
duke objects to a woman who has ren- 
dered lierself so notorious in connection 
with one of his relatives assuming an 
alias so closely resembling the name of 
another of his relatives, the Duke of 
Alencon, his iiepliew, for tho purpose of 
racing on a race course which is tho prop- 
erty of his family. Tlio example of 
Mmes. Langtry, Marsy and Eniilie 
d’Alencon is now being followed by Mile. 
Jeanne Granier, Yvette Guilbert and 
several other F rentli, Eiiglisli and Aus- 
trian actresses. 

In doing this the footlight favorifcs? 
are merely following in the wake of the 
great French, English, Austrian and 
German ari.stocracy, who have achieved 
fame as owners of racehorses aud racing 
studs. Among best known is 
tlie dowager Duchess of Montrose in 
England, who races under the name 
of Mr. iilanton, and -wlio for 30 years 
has been ono of tho most conspicuous 
figures on the British turf. Tlie daugh- 
ter of a family celebrated in tlio annals 
of sport — namely, tho Beresfords — she 
has all her lifo been passionately fond 
of racing. Although over 70 years of 
ago and quite portly, siio is still to be 
met at horse sales bidding for yearlings. 
She personally supervises her training 
stables, gives orders to tlio trainers and 
jockeys and may be seen after a race 
scolding and abusing tho latter with 
feminine luolonce and shrillness, Imt 
with masculine picturcsqneiiess of ex- 
jircssion, when tho race has not been run 
according to lier instructions and the 
horse has not won. When she wins a 
race, liowever, she goes off into hyster- 
ical exultation. 

In France the most prominent femi- 
nine figure upon tho turf is the widowed 
Duchess de Castries, sister-in-law of 
Marshal M.TcMalioii and now married to 
tho latter’s most intimate friend and ad- 
liorent, the Viscount Emmanuel d’Har- 
court. The duchess inherited her for- 
tune not from her first hu.sliand, who 
possessed little lieyond his ancient ii.anie 
and title and a fi-wei-niiruincd chateaux, 
but from her father, who was tlio cele- 
brated Viennese banker,  Sina, a Hebrew 
by race, but a Catholic in religion. 

At his death Bina left his money in 
equal shares of $15,000,000 each to his 
four daughters. One of them, the Prin- 
cess Gregory Ypsilanti, Aow a widow, 
has with the aMistance of her late lius- 
baiid, who wbis Greek minister to Aus- 
tria, squandered every cent and been 
obliged to apply for relief to the bank- 
ruptcy court at Vienna. Tho 8ecoH|d 
and third daughters, who married Prince 
Mayrocordato and Count Wimpffen re- 
spectively, eacli secured a divorce from 
her husband, thereby saving her fortune. 
The fourth of the Sina girls is the 
Dnehess do Castries, who still retains 
her title and the name of her first hus- 
band , although married to M. d’Harconrt. 
Until four years ago she was in racing 
partnership with the well known finan- 
cier, -iKilitifcian and sportsman, the Baron 
dc Souboyran, but now she has parted 
company from him and races under her 
own name and her own colors, though 
witli less success th-an in days of yore. 

At Vienna there are quite a largo num- 
ber of great ladies upon tho,tiirf, fore- 
most among wliom is the lovely Couni ess 
Mai-ie Appoayi, who is a daughter of the 
demented Prince of Montenuovo. The 
latter, now on inmate of the great insane 
asylum at Docbling, near Vienna, is the 
son of Empress Marie Louise of France, 
second wife of Napoleon I, and of her 
ugly old chamberlain. General Count von 
Neipperg. Prince Montenuovo had, how- 
ever, tlie misfortune to be born two years 
prexnons to tlie death of Napoleon at St. 
Hclcnk, and tlie Neipperg family, which 
is one of the oldest and most illustrious 
in Austria, declined to permit the boy to 
boar their name. 

Emperor Francis took pity on his ille- 
gitimate grandchild and not only en- 
dowed him with considerable wealth, 
lint also with the title and name of 
Prince Montenuovo, wliich is the Italian 
translation of tho word Neipiicrg. 

Yet another stable is that of tlio ec- 
centric Baroness von Stahlberg, wlio 
some time ago was sued by grooms for 
injuries sustained in lier slablKS, wliicli 
the plaintiff deserilu’d as a for 
horses, aud llie evidence showed llieni to 
bo a very Iiell for men. From tlie exaui- 
iuatiou of tlie witnesses it aiqicarcd that 
the baroness is in thu habit of entering 
tlie stables at noon and of often remain- 
ing there imtil early the next morning. 
During the time she is there she is ac- 
customed to teed tho animals with sugar 
and cake and encourage them to kick 
and bite the grooms, whom slie keeps in 
constant attendance upon the liorse.s, of- 
ten forcing them to ^tay up all iiiglit to 
watch and feed them. 

One of the plaintiff's stated that be 
had been dismissed by the baroness for 
“insnlting” a particularly vicious hoisc 
by l ursiiig it for having bolli kicked ami 
bitten him. At least c'O of the person 
in tlie court on that oc’jasioii bu! traces 
of the injuries received in tho stables ’jl 
this most eccentric of baronesses. For- 
tnnatoly there are few sporL-woinen like 
her in Austria. A. D. Dl: unu.

It is a little singular that the greatest 
privilege which the rich can enjoy over 
the poor is the one thing they exercis . 
the — that of making them h.appy. 
Colonel John A. Croigliton of Omaha is 
an exception. He i.s a millionaire, some 
say 10 times over, but the woaltli of good 
men is often estimated D*o biith. At va- 
rious times he has given $3,000,000 to 
the city ot Omaha to be used for benevo- 
lent purposes. Among his other chari- 
ties is a ho.spital wherein the applican; 
for relief is asked no questions as to race, 
color, religious belief, morals or politics. 
It is enough for the physician to know 
tliiit the applicant suffers and needs at- 

This is the only true charity. It is a 
[lity that the heuevoleiitly disposed find 
it neccsi.ary in so nianj- cases to look up 
• ho antecedents of those who are in 
want — to find whether their misfortunes 
were due to their own improvideuco or 
had habits or whether tliey are owing to 
something beyond tlieir control. But 
tins seems to bo tlio best rule for the 
more prudent and discreet benevolence 
of today. If economic conditions were 
a.s they should lie, liowever, it would be 
well known that every ablehodied 
person who applied for alms was an 
imposter. And as for the “lame, the 
halt, the blind and the sick,” they would 
not need to ask for alms — it would come 
without asking. 

A Boston newspaper has been getting 
tl’.e views of a number of clergymen, 
representing widely different religions 
organizations, as to what people may do 
on Sunday. Among those who gave their 
opinions were a Presbyterian, an Epis- 
copalian, a Roman Catholic, a Baptist, a 
Salvation Army major and a Unitarian. 
It took several columns for them to ex- 
press their views. The Roman Catholic 
had the broadest ideas of any regarding 
the oViservance of the day. He seemed 
to favor innocent recreation and amuse- 
ment. One of the clergymen urged 
everybody with the force of an exclama- 
tion point to “get more personal soul,” 
whatever that may mean. The force of

In view of the fact that Mayor Harri- j 
son of Chicago toudlied off an importun - 1 
ing office seeker's beard with a parlor 
match, it would he a good plan to revive 
tile old custom of covering the whiskers

New Hawaiian View. 

Hon. Charles NordhofTs letter from 
Honolulu to the New York Herald is in- ; 
tcresting if not positively startling, com- : 
ing as it does from a man whoso name 
gives character and force to what he 
says. Ho claims that nothing is clearer 
than that the deposition of the Hawaiian 
queen was due to an intrigue fostered j 
by the American minister. Mr. Nord- 
hoff takes up the questiou of native gov- 
ernment and discusses it from several 
sides. There are people there who think 
that an oligarchy would bo a nice thing. 
He does not believe that a republican 
form of government would be the best 
thing for a country like Hawaii with a 
mixed population. A real democracy 
would give the franchise to Chinese, 
Japanese and Polynesians equally with 
the native Hawaiians. 

Mr. Nordhoff says that white men 
have been at the bottom of much of tlie 
corrupt or had legishitiou which it is 
now the fashion to charge upon the na- 
tives. At present all is quiet, but if 
Americans wore to interfere in any way, 
even to restore the queen, tlie result 
would be mischievous. Concerning the 
benefits of such a colony to this country 
Mr. Nordhoff says: 

Nor conld we, if wc woro In want of colo- 
nies, plant ourselves in a less convenient or do- 
fcnsiblo situation. Wo should have lo defend 
four largo islands and four smaller ones lying 
at some distances ajiart. To protect aU oga4nsf 
attack would require a great licet in timo ol 

We do not need colonies, but when wo do wc 
ought to get one nearer home than 2,100 miles 
and Ijing more compactly than this group of 
islands. If this pear were ripe, and wo wanted 
pears, we ought not lo jfull it, but it is not ripe. 
We can alwa’i's liavc all the intluence hero that 
we wish. The commerce of the Islands is nat- 
urally and inevitably with us. Tlieir contract 
ami scmlservHo labor system, necessary to 
their prosperity and productiveness, Is repug- 
nant to our inslitution.s and to our customs, 
necessitates lews Justly hateful to our working 
people and ceJecU hero a mongrel population 
which is not htted to our system of govern- 

If there be but a modicum of truth in 
all this, and if the Hawaiians themselves 
are not hankeriug after a republic, it is 
a case where we can afford at least to 
make baste slowly. 

One Man Kcfiiscs Office. 

Frank \V. Roberts of Biddcfonl, Mo..' liiis 
been okorevl tlui consulate at Cape Town, but lie 
has decided not to accept liccauso of Ids disin- 
clination to t.ako ids children from the public 
scliools to hcatliendom.— News Dispatch. 

Thore are two points in this news item 
calculated to tax the credulity of the in- 
telligent reader. That an Ameirican cit- 
izen should ri.-fnse a foreign consulate at 
a time when 800 applications for simi- 
lar posts are on file in the state depart- 
ment is remarkable. That ho should 
liken Cape Town to “henthondom" i- 
preposterous. Such an aspersion would 
certainly b ! indignantly ropulsetl hy the 
inhabitants of that cultured comiuunity. 
Mr. Roberts' declination was rash, to 
say the least of it. Cape Town is a long 
way from “darkest Africa.” It .enjoys 
the advantages of an enlightened gov- 
eniment, a salubrious climato, public 
libraries, mnseilms. schools, churches, 
theaters, i Iroads, telegraplis, newspa- 
liers and an intelligent and cultivated 
white population. 

The children of the American consul 
at Capo Town may attend tho public 
schools and there 1 e prepared for the 
Ca])o university, an institution wliicli 
ninks with the English universities. Be- 
sides tho universitj'. there aro in tho co'. 
ony 0 colleges and 1,447 schools, of whic h 
434 aro public schools, 250 private f.u iii 
schools and 435 i.iissicvn schools for na- 
tives. I 

The person who imagines that Ameri- 
ca monopolizes all the virtue, liberty and 
intelligenoo of the universe is mailing a 
gre;it mistake. 

AVork and a I-'ac-t. 

Fomo of tho champions of a compul- 
sory 8-hour work day claim that in eight 
hours as mnch work could aud woiiM oe 
produced as in nine or ten. Nons-juse! 
If this Ihj so, why should the liours he 
reduced? These so called labor reformers 
ought to understand that such claims 
aro doubly wrong. First, they are not 
true, and, second, if they were, they 
would bo an argument against the pro- 
posed short hour legislation. 

The only possible reason for abridg- 
ing the hours of labor by law is that to 
do so would give more persons steady 
employment; it would increase the de- 
mand for labor and decrease the supply 
of unemployed labor. As the value of 
everything, whether it be brains, skill, 
muscle, money, diamonds, beans or po- 
tatoes, depends upon the supply ot it 
and the demand for it, a decreased sup- 
ply of labor and an increased demand 
for it would make labor of greater value, 
p-ailing to do this tho iiropiosed reduced 
hours would be (if no economic benefit 
whatever. Labor champions cannot af- 
ford to lose sight of this fact. 

A plantation near New Berne, N. C., 
netted to its owners $35,000 cash in 1.^1, 
a good part of the sum coming from 
cabbages. Tho plantation consists of 
1,000 acres and is rnn ns a “truck farm,” 
being planted in early vegetables for the 
northern market. 'What is the good of 
trying to get an office when men can 
make money like that at farming? 

Mary Anderson-Navarro's st.igo remi- 
niscences are slowly getting into shajic. 
She says she is inclined to be lazy and 
does not write rapidly, but they will be 
ready for publication in tho early fall.

The New Coume at Elmore Place One of 

the HeKt In the State- It 1 h a “Half Mile/' 

Colonel H. S. Schultz, the new proj 
priotor and lessee of “Elmore Place,” 
that beautiful little gem of a stock 
farm on the Vei-sailles pike near the 
fair grounds, has wrought wonderful 
changes out there this spring. 

Chief Engineer Blakoman, possibly 
the most expert track builder in Ken- 
tucky, planned, and. Captain John 
Lavery constructed a half mile course 
25 feet wide, and I'roiessor James 
Nelson, who measured it yesterday to 
test some fine points in “tlicorotical 
calculus,” unhesitatingly pronouuced 
it one of the most finished and hesl 
pieces of work lie ever inspected. 

Colonel Schultz says it is simply a 
daisy, and cordially invites all of his 
legion of friend.s to come out and 
bring tlicir steppers and convince 
themselves and got ready to take “the 
word” in some matinee trots to vary' 
tho monotony of April and May show- 

Colonel Schultz and his handsome 
wife are valuable acquisitions to this 
county, and we predict for him a con- 
tinuation of the success which made 
him and the late lamented W. H. Wil- 
son, of Abdallali Park, so famous.

Wherein Ucs the Fault of Most lutelll- 

gent Criticism of the Modern Newspa- 
pers and Thoir Itlethods nf Guthorlng aud 

Presenting the News. 

The JMassachusett.'i Society For the 
Promotion of Good Citizenship has late- 
ly been addressed by several distingtaish- 
ed gentlemen in a series of lectures upon 
tlie sfib.iect of jomnalism, and the re- 
sult should 1 k) a clear understanding of 
wliat is necessary to constitute the ideal 
uewspaiier. Unfortunately, however, 
these philosophers are at hopeless con- 
traries. No two of them ugree^upon 
any essential point. They have conflict- 
ing views not only as to the casual fea- 
tures of tlie case, but also as to the 
fundamental facts. What one consid- 
ers a drawback another declares to be 
an advantage. Their methods of anal- 
ysis and judgment diller as widely as if 
they were desi.gned simply to bewlder 
the average mind. They aro in hai-mony 
only upon the proposition that there is 
great room for improvement in the daily 

When it comes to telling how the im- 
provement should be made, they have 
their individual notions and are nnablo 
to make the same recommendation in a 
single respect. They would each h.ave a 
newspaper suited to his special prefer- 
ences aud prejudices v/ithout regard to 
tlio tastes and wants of the rest of the 
world. It does not seem to occur to 
them that journalism appeals to a mis- 
ccllaneons audience, and that it must 
adapt itself to the demands of the many 
instead of the wishes of tho few, or it will 
lose its ocenpatiou. They would have 
it cater to a select constituency, forget- 
ting that if it liad to depend upon a se- 
lect constituency for support it would 
soon cease to exist. 

It is true of most criticism of the news- 
papers that it is thus narrow and un- 
reasonable. Any intelligent man can 
e.a.sily map out a model journal from his 
point of view, but his point of view does 
not include tho whole field. At the most 
it only relates to tlie opinions and tend- 
encies of a class, whereas a community 
is compose l of many classes, all having 
different desires aud interests. The ed- 
iior who knows his businesa seeks to 
please the majority and not the minori- 
ty. lie knows that his paper must have 
more p.otrons than any one class can 
fnrnisli if it is to thrive and keep jmee 
with the progi-ess of the age. 

It is' not to he supposed tliat he regards 
liis position as that of a man with a 
Bolnnm mission for the dispensation of 
wisdom and virtue, whatever the 
pecuniary results may he. He cannot 
afford to take liimself so seriously. Ilis 
functious, as he understands them, aro 
of a more practical nature, anid experi- 
ence teaches him that success lies in the 
direction of recognizing and gratifying 
a variety of tastes. 

hi that wa.v only can he secure the 
, number of readers necessary to jmy the 
large and constantly increasing exjiense 
of gathering the news from all parts of 
the globe and presenting all current in- 
formation alxiut the affairs of mankind. 
It is quite likely tliat lie often prints 
matter of a superficial and transient or- 
der, but it has its value to those who 
want it, and that is its justification so 
long as reasonable discrimination is used 
in selecting and apportioning it. Those 
who do not caro for it are at liberty to 
skip it and read only what tliey like, 
wliich may bo equally distasteful to 
others. ' 

There would he a great deal less of this 
talk about tho ideal newspaper if the 
critics would stop to think that we are 
not yet living in an ideal world. The 
press, like cveiy other public institution, 
is subject to existing conditions and in- 
fluences and cannot dictate tho terms of 
its own service and prosiierity. It has 
come to its jireseiit state of usefuluess 
aud importance through a process of 
gradual evolution. There has been a 
systematic improvement in its character 
end its proceedings. It grows more cred- 
itable every year as its oi port unities ex- 
tend and its iKjpularity increases. 

To say that it is not perfect is only to 
s.ay that it shares tlie prevailing short- 
comings of human nature and is gov- 
erned by the law of environment. It Iw- 
gan by being a luxmy, and it ha.s be- 
come a necessity. This could not liave 
happened if it had not vindicated its 
right to such consideration. Things do 
not become indispensjiblo unless they 
have definite and practical value. It i.s 
not possible to conceive how we could 
get along without newspapers. They oc- 
cupy a larger place in the system of mod- 
ern civilization than any other one agen- 
cy of general convenience and advan- 

Tho i eople appreciate them, notwith- 
standing the efforts of certain carpers to 
disparage and discredit them. It is not 
true that their faults exceed their vir- 
tues. They perform their appointed 
work with diligence, discretion and a 
duo sense of responsibility. The worst 
that can be said of them is tiiat they are 
not better than the world in which they 
are published. But they are unquestion- 
ably twice as good as tho world which 
makes them what they arc, aud when it 
reaches tho ideal standard they will get 
there also. — St. Louis Glolre-Democrat.

What a Tourist May See Iu Yellowstone 
National Farh. 

[Special Corre«si on lcnce.l 
YnLLOWSTONF. P.riiK, Wy., May 25.— 
Every year witnes.«es an increase in the 
paternal care whicii the general govern- 
ment is bestowing ujicn this tho grand- 
est national reservation in the world. 
Roughness is giving way to the soften- 
ing lines of art, aud the hardship of 
travel is yielding to comfortable device.' 
Old Indian trails have become broad 
and serviceable road.s, substantial wag- 
ons aud good horses convey the tourist 
to the various points of interest in the 
park, and there is solace in the thought 
tlwt at tlie end of the day he uiay find 
shelter iu one of the several hotels that 
have been erected, instead of being com- 
pelled to camp out. as we used to do 10 
years ago under a fly tent or with the 
heavens for a canopy. 

By far the most agreeable as well as 
economical mode of travel to and around 
this ueigliborhood is to organize a small 
party and divide the expense. Wliile 
solitude is.a fine thing, it is a pleasure to 
have some one to whom wo can say from 
time to time that it is a tine thing. 
Where else in the world, for instance, 
can one see close to the surface on so 
grand and varied a scale the evidence of 
subterranean fires and stand, as it were, 
on their very brink watching the linger- 
ing death throes of the terrible volcanic 
forces that convulsed tho world to its 
center ages ago? What a grand priv- 
ilege it is to look down from tho summit 
of Mount Washburn, one of tho highest 
peaks in the erratic Rocky mountains, 
and view tho places where are born the 
rills which grow into tlie mightiest riv- 
ers in the United States aud the grim 
and towering walls that constitute the 
great divide and force tlie flow of waters 
either eastward by way of tho gulf of 
Mexico into the Atlantic or westward 
into the Pacific ocean 1 
Once within tho park, the visitor un- 
dergoes conflicting emotions of wonder, 
terror aud delight, for nature here 
seems to have put forth all her powers. 
Tremendous geysers shoot up their 
mighty fountains hundreds of feet in air. 
causing the earth to tremble at their vio- 
lence. Hot springs, indescribable in their 
strange beauty, show depths as trans- 
parent as glass. Other pools cast up huge 
jets of colored mud — green, red, yellow 
and saffron. In front of tho hotel rises 
a scries of white terraces high in air, on 
wliich are pools filled with boiling wa- 
ter that tend up columns of steam, and 
overflowing run down from plateau to 
plain in miniature cascades. Drop -any 
object in them — ^say. a horseshoe, a bot- 
tle with an inscription on the ghuss or a

brea.stpin — and iijta few hours it will be 
produced in its minutest detail white as 
snow. SeeuMVom thtir base, these mam- 
moth springs aro indescribably grand 
and beautiful, tho coating of the side^s 
of the biisins end pools taking on every 
delicate and vivid tint, rich cream and 
ealmon colors predominating, the water 
itself being a rich turquoise blue. It is 
probable that when the healing quality 
of the w.ater lias been full)’ tested this 
locality Avill become a resort for the af- 

Another of the wonders of the park 
are the obsidian or volcanic glass cliffs. 
Tliey are about 1,000 feet iu length and 
from 200 to 250 feet high, rising in al- 
most vertical columns from the road 
running along their base. Tho glass glis- 
tens like jet„ yet it is quite opaque. 
Probably it forms the only glass road in 
tiie world. Within a few rods is a lake 
where may be witnessed evidences of the 
ingenious work of beavers in the con- 
struction of tlieir dams, consisting of 30 
or 40 great tree trunks which siveep in 
graceful curves from side to side and 
each having a fall of from two to six feet. 

Riding on, we reach the Xorris geysiT 
basin, aptly called Hell Hole and Fire 
Hole, because the entire area is a vast 
collection of hot springs and pools, vary- 
ing in color, some being jet black, some 
white as driven snow and others as sul- 
phurous a yellow as Lucifer liimself 
could wish. Among the geysers “Oid 
Faithful” possesses tho most extraordi- 
nary interest It is so called because of 
tho punctual regularity witli which ev- 
ery hour, almost to the minute, it sends 
np a great stream 4 or 5 feet iu diameter 
to a height' of 150 feet. Any one who 
wants Ills washing done in short order 
and thoroughly • has only to xmt liis 
clothes in tho crater before an eniplion, 
and wlien they come down three or four 
minutes later they are as clean as if they 
had passed througli the hands of a Clii- 
neso lanndryman. Tlie giant geyser of 
all is known as the Caldron or Excel- 
sior. It is 330 feet in length and 200 feet 
wide, and from its pit ascends at inter- 
vals an immense volume of steaming 
hot water to a height of 800 or more feet, 
hurling huge rocks over the surrounding 
acres. Tho rumblings produced are like 
those of an earthquake. 

The waut of space forbids a descrip- 
tion of a hundred other wonders iu this 
marvelous region. There is the Sulphur 
mountain, hot and seething— a solid mass 
of beautiful yellow crystals; the grand 
canyon of tho Yellowstone, with its 
many tinted sides changing with every 
motion of the clouds; the magnificent 
falls and lake — a paradise for sportsmen; 
the natural bridge, caves and cascades; 
fossil forests iu which the trunks and 
limbs of trees have been petrified into 
agate of various hues; petrified animals 
and insects, while the jictrified bushe.s 
seem to hear such wonderful fruit as 
diamonds, emeralds, rubies, sapphires 
and amethysts in a profusion tliat is be- 
wildering. Nowhere in this or any other 
land will the tourist be so amply repaid 
as here, and until ho has visited this jKirt 
of God's footstool he will not have seen 
handiworks of the Creator before which 
all othetsaifc insignificaiit.

Some fly over the CuckooV iie!»t. 

Now the names of those who purpose 
Hying over the cuckoo's nest this sum- 
mer have not yet positively been as- 
certained, but sure it is that the large 
part of Lexington’s population will on 
the appearance of the “rosy time of 
the year” depart for the East or West 
and in many cases both the East and 
West will entertain the same ones of 
our folks this summer. The usual 
Hitting will begin in June. It will be 
more of an out-pouring than usual, but 
the return in most instances will bo 
sooner than generally happens in sum- 
mer. ' 

Of course everybody thinks it his or 
her boundeu duty to go to the World’s 
Fair, “if only, " as a girl in town i-o- 
marked, “to save the trouTilc of con- 
tinually explaining why one didn’t 
go.” A very disagreeable part of this 
colossal Columbian enterprise is the 
fact that it will take every cent a jier- 
son hail laid aoide for a summer trip, 
and then it will last him such a short 
time. No one for an instant’ enter- 
tains the idea of pitching his lent in 
the Windy City for more than a month 
and most e.xpecljto be gone only two 
weeks. Even that, however, will re- 
duce the sum laid aside for a summer 
outing so low that the rest of the hot 
sunny months will have to be spent

VHE closing german of the season, 
given by the Young Men’s 
Cotillion club, at the I’hoenix 
Friday night, in honor of Miss Bruce 
and Miss Field, of Louisville, was in 
all respects a very pleasant affair. In 
point of women it wa.- - unusually small 
but as far as men were concerned, it 
was iiiiite large, fully one-third of the 
men having come bollolcss. Of courec 
tills great superiluity of beaux only 
added to the enjoyment of the girls 
present each one being thus imiilo a 
’’bowling'’ belle. 

.\s if (Icsii ing to leave a ph asant 
iiupresi'ioii, the music ami the lloor 
outdid Uieniselvcs even, both ticing in 
Hue daiu’iiig trim. The favors were 
very lu ctty ami ijuite exiiensive. They 
wore selected by Miss Mina Goodioc 
during her stay in Cincinnati. Among 
the most striking wore little parrots in 
swings, which wore presented to the 
ladies, the donors always, however, 
emphatically denying that birds of a 
feather alivays flocked together. Pipes 
were for tlie men; pen knives, pin 
trays, picture frames and lots of other 
pretty trifles wore secured by the

HE marriage of Miss Carrie Wolf, 
of this city, and Mr. George P. 
Donnelly, of Cincinnati, ivill 
take place in the latter part of .Tunc. 
Miss AVolf is widely known as a mu- 
sician of unusual ability: in fact, ever 
since her childhood, which, to be sure, 
1 VO.S not so verj', very long ago. she has 
been called upon to play in public on 
innumorablo occasions. It was ivhilo 
in Cincinnati pursuing her musical 
studios that she mot her fate. Mr. 
Donnelly is teacher of the organ in the 
Cincinnati College of Music; he is also 
organist a-. St. Edward’s church of that 
city. Although quite a young man, 
he already stands high in this, his 
chosen profession. 

The marriage will take place in the 
morning at St. Paul's Catholic church. 
There will be no attendants except- 
ing four ushers, who will come with 
Mr. Donnelly from Cincinnati. The 
bridal gown is of a heavy silken stuff 
of alight sage green tint, with flecks of 
(link. It i.s elaborately fa.shioned with 
trimmings of green and of pink silk 
and irridoseont iiassamcntcri, whieb 
oombim-.s all tlio tints reprc.•^ellll;d. 
Her gloves are g-rcon, her slippers 
pink, or ratlier old rose. Her hat com- 
bines tli : two. Siie will carry Catli- 
orino Mermet roses. After the ecr- 
omony a handsome breakfast will be 
served at the rosidenoo of lior pareftts, 
Mr. and. Mrs. Wolf, on Fourth street. 
Mrs. Donnelly will change lier wed- 
ding dress for a traveling costume, and 
the young pair will leave for Cincin- 
nati, where, after a visit to Ghieugo. 
tliey will begin housekeeping. 

R. C. SUYDAM .SCOTT enter- 
tained ten little maids from 
Siiniliiy wliool at a dcliglitful 
inTorma! supper I'riday night. Tlio 
reason lie selected tliese girls was the 
fact that they form his Sunday ’school ami he wanted to have them all 
moot socially hcncatli his own vine and 
tig tree before they disperse for the 
summer. The hour set was eight, and 
the supper was sot at eight. Tlie re- 
past was served in several delicious 
courses. The table was ae.-'tlietically 
idorned with roses, and altogether the 
pupils enjoyed their visit to their 
teacher thoroughly. The fortunate 
class is composed of Misses T,oii Davis, 
Katie Harrison. Whitney Hostetter, 
Lucy C Logan, Evelyn Luca.s, Florence

O successful was Mrs. M T. Scott's

she elected to try it again on a 
vc’y much smaller scale Friday even" 
lug. This time, however, it wa-s a 
family dinner, twelve ladies connected 
by bloixl or marriage forming the en- 
tire list of guests bidden. The house 
was still abhjiim with roses from the 
evening Ticfore — oyory one, by the way, 
having Ixieii sent by friends. The ta- 
ble was a study in white and green, 
and the ivliolo evening was spent very 
merrily. Mre. Slauglitor Bassett, who, 
with her husband, leaves for Colorado 
tomorrow, was the guest of honer. 

RH. ALFRED PETER, who ^is 
the posses.sor of that gift not 
vouchsafed to all of us, the 
art of being a perfect hostess, enter- 
tained the “Big Reading club" last

of the reading, which to be perfectly 
candid, had Ixjen iutersporsod with

T here is a delightful surprise in 
store for Lexington juvenile- 
dom tftis week. If you’ll prom- 
ise not to tell on me I'll tell you what 
it is. A little boy on Broadway is go-

Do you know what that is'/ It is a 
party to which all the invitations will 
have painted on them a rainbow. 
When you get one of these invitations 
if you are a girl you must ask your

dress of any bright color and 3 ’ou must 
have a cap of the same or a difforent 
color, too. Tho boys must wear across 
their shoulders wide sashes of gay tis- 
sue paper. Around tho bottom of their 
knickerbockers mus* be bands of paper 
terminating in a paper buckle. On 
their shoos must 1x3 buckles of paper 
and every boj’ must wear a cap. The 
effect of a room of little folks dressed 
like this will be dazzling. Now when 
j’ou receive your invitations dress e.x- 
actly as I tell j-ou and it will all be just 

T hursday^ a party of fourteen 
girls will gather together at 
the liomc of Miss Laura Spurr,

The l ufr Opera Coiup;iiiy Sliould Keceive r 

llcartj W«U‘oine- ll in One of the ltc«t 

on the Koad— **l*Htioucc” the liill for the 

Second Night. 

Lovers of lieautiful music are .vet 
discussing the delight given by the 
visits of the Damrosch and Seidle or- 
chestras. Another treat of equal mag- 
nitude is soon to be given them. Man- 
ager Charles Scott, of tlie Opera House, 
returned to Lexington last night from 
New York City where, after a week of 
eloquent talking, he secured for the 
evenings of June 7 and 8'tho J. C. Duff 
Opera company, the most famous of 
American operatic organizations and 
the one which for eight successive 
weeks has summer after summer been 
the craze with the Ijouisville public. 

It is to this annual engagement in 
Louisville that the visit to Lexington 
is due, the enterprise of Mr. Scott hav- 
ing led him to induce Mr. Duff to stop 
off here on his way to the former city 
from New York. Under no other cir- 
cumstances could the notable event of 
next week be a possibilitj’, as the enor- 
mous expense attached to tho tours of 
this great company is such tliat it can 
onlj’ appear in those cities where it 
can remain for from one to .eight weeks. 

The organization neetls no introduc- 
tion in Lexington, it is the oldest as 
well as the leading one of its character 
in this country. Mr. Duff’s name in 
opera is ivliat the name of Augustin 
Daly is in tho drama, or that of Theo- 
dore Thomas is in orchestral music. 
His company is the only American 
operatic organization that has ever 
been permitted to appear in the vast 
and magnificent Chicago Auditorium. 

It is one of the few, beside the com- 
pany attached to the itself, 
that lias ever appeared at tho famous 
New ’I'ork Casino, where it has just 
completed a run of five successive 
weeks. The artists ajipearing with it 
licro will be the same who were with it 
in New York. 

There will tic a magnificent chorus of 
fifty voices, the companj' in its entirety 
numbering over sixty people, in addi- 
tion to a special orchestra of twenty, 
under tlio loadersliip of J ulian Edwards, 
the distinguished i'inglish musician and 
composer of the opera of “Jupiter.’’ 
Notwithstanding the unusual expense 
attiuilicd to this engagement, the fact 
that it occurs wliilc the coinjiany is 
making its necessary journey to Louis- 
ville. permits Mr. Scott to unnounije 
that thoro will be no advance in the 
price of scats. 

The bill for tho opening night, one 
wi'ck from next ucniiesdai’. ivil! be tbo 
production for tlie first time liero of 
the much talked of “Gavalloria Rii.s- 
ticana.” Both Europe aiyl America 
seem lo be all but insane with delight 
at this wonderful work, which is by 
I’ictro Mascagni, an Italian Ixiy 
.scarcely out of liis toen.s, yet of wlioiii 
tlie journals and magazines of both 
liciiiisphercs have been filled for more 
than a year. As a drama it lias lieoii 
played by Salvini and by Duse. As an 
opera it has been sung by none with 
sucii marvelous success as by Mr. Duff's 
com])aiiy. whicli cmiiraccs two of those 
who were in the original production of 
tlio work in America. 

Tlie second night will show the re- 
markable versatility of this strong or- 
ganization. It will pass from the fire 
and pa.ssion and tragedy of ’’Cavalleria 
Kusticana" to tlie merriment and light- 
ness, the melody and laughter of 
“Patience,” one of tho most charming 
of all the popular operas in the Gilbert 
& Sullivan repertoire. 

The announcement of this engage- 
ment is of itself ample good news. 
But Manager Scott has even done 
belter. Ho lias made partial arrange- 
ments with Mr. Duff by wbicli Ijcxiiig- 
toii will assume a leading position 
among tlie musical centers of the coun- 
try. Should next week's visit of the 
company receive the support expected 
— and there should be no doubt on that 
point for Lexington has not been sur- 
feited with sueli operas — every effort 
will be made to arrange for a grand 
festival of opera to take place every 
year and to extend during the entire 
week of the fair. 

The plan is to be bring the entire 
Duff companj’ here at the close of its 
annual engagement in Louisville, to 
make special engagements for this oc- 
casion with llio leading vocalistsof the

Nation— Secretary Carlisle’s Call Had a 
Kather Pleasant Result for the OfHco- 

WaSIIINOTON, May 27.— Probably 
the most important pension decision 
ever sent from the ofTiee of the .secre- 
tary of the interior to the commission- 
er of pension was filed today. 

It involves the repeal order passed 
by General Itauin and approved 1iy As- 
sistant' Secretary Bussey and a return 
to the language of the statute recpiir- 
ing disability, not of service origin 
alone, but to be such as to j)rovent the 
applicant from earning a support by 
manual labor. 

Secretary lloke Smith submitted the 
qUestious involved to Attorney-General 
Olney and Judge Lochren. commis- 
sioner of pensions, lx)th of whom con- 
curred in the correctness of the decis- 

The decision is in the case of one 
Bennett, who sought a pension under 
the old law, alleging that while in the 
service at Raleigh, X. C., he was pros- 
ti-ated by a sunstroke, which resulted 
in i)artial deafnes.s in both ears. This 
a] piication was denied on the ground 
that while the ap])licant hjis a slight 
deafness, as alleged, it was not of suf- 
ticient severity to warrant any rating. 
Bennett subseciuontly applied for and 
received a iiension of $12 a month un- 
der thu act of .lune 27, 18H0. 

During Commissions Jtanm's admin- 
istration an order was i.ssued known as 
ordes KB, which directed that all 
claims for a pension under the act of 
June 27, 181 H|, .should be l ated the same 
as like durabilities of service origin, 
and that all cases showing a pension 
foi- disability, which if of service origin 
would be rated at or about $12 a 

X'umerous complaints liave reached

bureau, who addressed the letter to 
Immigrant Insjiech'r Stitcli at ('hii*a-

alien contract labor law and subject 
themselves to prosecution. 

Attorney-General Olney has decided 
that Young Hon, a restaurant keeper, 
is not a laborer. 

The computation, of the naval engi- 
neers upon the speed attained by the

Secretary Carlisle had an e.-ttended 
conference with Cleveland this even- 
ing. and as a result ten or twelve col- 
lectors of internal revenue, the second

not consti-ue them as preventing

13 to ^ TelU tlieSt&ry of Yeftterday’s Game. 
The Boys Were Given a Tusftle Friday, 
Hut They Redeemed Themselven In Grea 
Shape Id Satarday’A Game. 

The game of ball between the Ken- 
tucky university and the l.'nivcr;jity of 
Cincinnati teams yesterday aftcr’noon 
was in great contrast to the one of the 
day before. 

Friday's game was the best that has 
been played in Lexington this' season, 
the score when the game was called 
being 0 to 0. But one error was made 
on each side, the playing was brisk, 
and every man played the game of his 

What a difference there was yester- 
day. Both sides wore anxious to win 
and worked hard, hut one was decided- 
ly in it from the start and the other 
was not. The Cincinnati boys were no 
mateli for tho home club, and after tho 
third inning the latter liad everything 
as if to order. 

The pitcher of the University of Cin- 
cinnati club seemed utterly unable to 
put thi'cc straight balls over the jilate 
tliat the umpire would call strikes 
and declare the batter out. .-Vll the K. 
U. hoys liad to do was to get 
a fair lick at the ball and the base run- 
ning eommeneed. Brown and Boswell, 
catcher and fii-st baseman respectively 
of the University team, in addition to 
their lino betting, jilayed siilendidly 
from Ixjginning to end. and the work 
done by them was the fcatui-o of tho 

Conover's pitching was brilliant and 
effective. Tlio game hud to 1x) called 
after tho ciglith inning to allow tho 
visiting club time to oatch the nortli 
Ixmnd train over the Cincinnati 

The score stood l-'i to 2 in favor of 
the homo oluh. This is another bril- 
liant victory to the credit of the Ken- 
tucky Univorsitys, who have not lost a 
single game this year. Tiiey claim tj 
be the champions of Kentucky college 
teams, and the club that thinks other- 
wise will Ix' given an argument any 
time they name it. 

Following is the score of the game

The Civil Service Kysleiii. 

To tlie New York Suli Ixtlongs the 
rredit of first announcing that President 
Cleveland contemplates a complete re- 
form of methods of appointment in the 
public service. The details of tlio new 
idea are said to provide for the estab- 
lishment of a new tribunal modeled aft- 
er the present civil scrence reform com- 
mission, but possessing more complete 
and extended powers, with the idea of 
keeping such oiBcials as are not chosen 
by tlie people in office for life or during 
good behavior, very much after the pat- 
tern of the English system. 

It has been claimed that this was the 
intention of the founders of our govern- 
ment. Jefferson was the first president 
to depart from this policy. He inaugu- 
rated the system of rewards and appoini- 
ments for political reasons. In a letter 
to a committee of merchants in 1801 he 
said: “If a duo participation in office is a 
matter of riglit, how are vacancies to lie 
obtained? Tliose by death are few; by 
resignation, none.” But the system of 
rotation in office did not come into full 
force until Jackson's time. He main- 
tained that every citizen had an equal 
riglit to public office, and his removals 
numliered far more than all presidents 
logetlier who preceded him. This doc- 
trine has been defended on the ground 
that a long tenure of office creates a 
bureaucracy of officeholders who forget 
that they are the servants of the public. 

The civil service reformers claim that 
ynly a few important offices need be 
changed with each administration in or- 
der to insure the adequate carr -ing out 
of its policy, and they fortify their posi- 
tion by other arguments which need not 
be stated here. 

The civil service commission was ap- 
pointed in 1871, but as congress refused 
to appropriate funds to carry the meas- 
ure out it had little effect. Tho Pendle- 
ton liill of 1882 is the one in force at 
present. Botli Republicans and Demo- 1 
crats uphold this principle of civil serv- j 
ice reform in their platforms, but acen - 1 
sations of partisan execution of it are al - 1 
■ways made against the party in power. | 

It is hardly necessary to say that The j 
Sun  loes not favor the idea, nor does it 
enjoy the confidence of the president.
