011 the Fourteenth Htrcot lino of horso
cnrti tells of 11 notuliU1 loml of pusseiiKcrs
his Kir curried on om of his trips during
tho holidays. On one sldo of tho car sat
eh;ht girls nnd younj; Indies, tho youngest
being nlxiut 0 or 7 Though nomu had
black hair nnd somo golden, there wna n
family resemblance between till tho
right, nnd all wero moro or less pretty
nnd )liiinnu On tho other sldo of tho
car were nine girls, in nge from 0 up
ward, nnd also looking much uliko. Tho
girls on om side looked nt the girls on
tho other with much curiosity, untl tho
fow other pnpscngors who wero ublo to
find Beats In thnt vehicle gazed at both
sides with ill concealed amazement.
Tho eight girls wero Bisters, daughters
f Chief JtiHtico Melville V. Fuller. Tho
nliio girls wero also Bisters, daughters of
a Mr. Solomon, ono of the wealthy Hebrew-
residents of Washington. Prob
ably these aro tho most numerous 11 ml
prettiest families of girls to bo found in
tho Capital City. It Is ono of theso Ful
ler girls, and ierhaps the prettiest of
them, Paulino, who has lately created n
sensation by running away to bo mar
ried. The Solomon girls are not often
seen on the Btreets or in public convey
ances, as they llvo an exceedingly re
tired llfo and aro privately educated.
They aro Bnld to bo very refined, accom
plished, and ovory ono a beauty, mak
ing, when all together, an array of girl
ish loveliness not to bo oxcollod by unv'
family in America. Tho conductor and
driver of tho car which was honored
with tho presenco of so many beauties
havo not yet recovered from their en
thusiastic admiration for their seventeen
Tho chief justico's daughters nro very
popular in Washington for their sim
plicity, vivacity and hearty manners.
Thcro is no affectation in tho Fuller
household. A fow weeks ago, when tho
oclal Reason was at Its high tide. Miss
uraco I-uller introduced two of her call
ers. Ono was a hot houso attacho of a
foreign legation in Washington, a pret
ty, delicate thing, with n drawl, a lisp,
high collar, thick cane and much affec
tation of indifTcronco und social superior
ity. Tho other was n young nowspapcr
man from tho west, not very tall but as
muscular us an athlete. At tho intro
duction tho westerner extended his
hand in tho fashion of his country. Tho
attacho merely bowed and drawled,
"Ah glad to bco you ah Uh"
But to such cold formality tlio west
erner had not been accustomed. He ho
llo ved in shaking hands when introduced
to gentlemen, and bo ho stood with his
arm outstretched. Tho haughty aristo
crat Baw tho hand of his now acquain
tance, but turned his head in a pretenso
of not seeing it and endeavored to con
tinue tho conversation. Now tho west
erner's dander was up, and ho said to
himself he would tuako tho scion of aris
tocracy shako his hand or know the rea
son why. A glanco at tho smiling faco
and twinkling eyes of his hostess as
sured him of her sympathy and ap
proval, and, thus encouraged, ho step
ped In front of tho now excited younc
attache, again extended his hand and
uwaitcd results. His antagonist, in this
Bomowhut amusing but momentarily
serious Btrugglo, looked first into tho
faco of tho hostess and then into that of
tho westerner. He blushed und ftum
mercd, and finally, with us good grace
as possible under the circumstances,
grasped tho proffered hand.
Miss Fuller, who had keenly enjoyed
tho little combat, clapped her hands' in
gleo und smiled on both victor and van
quished. For a second or two tho latter
also smiled, ns it dawned upon him that
this was a wild western joko; but his
satisfaction was of short duration. In n
twinkling ho found his dclicato little
hand in tho grip or a giant; the athletic
victor closed his muscular lingers about
tho soft and Hubby digits of tho uttacho,
and relentlessly ground them togother
till joints cracked and an exclamation of
pain e&capcd tlio sufferer's lips. He kept
his temper, howovcr, and there was no
"sceno" In tho chief justico's drawing
Senator Coke, of Texas, is a man of
great adaptability. In tho great statu
which ho has tho honor to represent iu
tho senate ho is a Texan, not abovo sit
ting on a fence to talk politics with his
neighbors, and prono to slap men on tho
back und occasionally to extend or ac
cept, in hearty western fashion, an invi
tation to go out nnd tako a drink. Dut
In Washington tho senator is qulto a dif
ferent bort of man. Hero ho beliovcs in
doing us tho Washingtonians do wear
ing good clothes and a great deal of dig
nity. Somo of his constituents nro not
awaro of tho cliango which a journey
from Texas to tho District of Columbia
makes in tho senator's deportment, and
several amusing incidents illustrativo of
the Incongruity of prairio freedom with
capital dignity havo lately occurred.
Tlireo cattlo men from n frontier county
In Texas wero In Washington n fow days
ago, und decided to call on Senator Coko
at his houso. A servant opened tho
door for them, and from tho hall
thoy espied tho benutor iu nn ad
joining parlor. Without removing
their hats or bothering with tho
formality of sending iu cards thoy bolt
ed Into tho parlor, shook both of Coko's
hands nt once, called him "Dick," slapped
him on tho back and altogether over
whelmed him with tho familiarity and
warmth of their greeting. As boon us
tho senator could recover himself, ho
thus addiCHScd his visitors; "Now, seo
here, friends, in Washington we don't
do business this way, You should havo
removed your hats in tho hall und sent
in your cards or names by tho servnuU
I want every man of you to go out into
tho hall, removo your hats, tell tho ser
vant your names, bo nnnouncod In tho
projHT way and i-omo In like gentlemen."
Tho astonished visltora did uh they wero
told, mid after keeping them waiting
ulxHtt llvo minutes the senator ordered
them admitted. They Died In, looking
daggers at their host, nnd prepared to
give him a round cursing, as nn urls
tocrat who had disgraced the good state
of Texas. Hut when they beheld on
tho parlor table the familiar demijohn,
with four glasses conveniently nt hand,
their anger softened: nnd when the sena
tor guvo them a hearty greeting, passed
tho glnsses and laughed at tho joko he
had played on them, they became entire
ly reconciled and nccorded their host
full forgiveness. By this neat stroke of
diplomacy tho senator gave his friends a
lesson in Washington ctlquetto and sena
torial dignity which thoy will never for
get, nnd without nny offense to them.
In this Lenten Benson society's devo
tees, resting from tho gay whirl of tho
past, talk much of tho season that Is to
come, Tho great question Is tho social
leadership of tho future, which generally
Is accorded to Mrs. Morton. Tho depar
ture of Mrs. Whltnoy, tho recognized
leader under tho Cleveland administra
tion, is sincerely regretted by all, for sho
was jiopular with both Democrats and
Republicans. Mrs. Whltnoy Is not only
n social leader of wonderful tnct und
grace, but bIio Is n devoted wlfo nnd
mother. When tho Benson was at flood
tldo and tho wonder was how hIio could
find tlmo to attend to her multifarious
duties, she rarely neglected to drlvo her
husband to tho train or to drlvo to meet
him on his return. At tho Baltimore
and Potomac station ono day n throng of
persons waiting for tho Now York train
wero surprised toscotishort woman, with
n fresh young faco and gray hair, clnd
In a rich sealskin, playing along tho plat
form with u little dog. Sho rouicd Uko
a school girl, now running forward as
fast us she could go, tho dog nfter her,
now backward at un astonishingly ulmblu
pace It was Mrs. Whltnoy, tho Bocloty
queen, wniting for her hushaud, tho sec
retary, with whom sho presently walked
away, as light hearted and gay as a brido.
Somo of tho senators aro eager to havo
their salaries raised. Tho pay of men in
public llfo is ridiculously inadequate.
Very fow senators nnd not moro than
one-half of tho representatives nro nblo
to llvo within their salaries, and us for
Baving anything out of u senator's or
representative's salary, that Is out of tho
question with men who havo families to
support. A great many congressmen
leavo their families nt homo because thoy
cannot afford to bring them here. It is
not in all uncommon for a senator to pay
for rent ulono moro than his salary. A
western senator, living nlono nnd rather
modestly in a boarding houso, and not in
a hotel, pays $350 a month for his par
lors und board. Ills salary is only n lit
tlo moro than $400 11 month. Another
senator lost $2,000 recently in u
law suit, and, though nn eco
nomical man in his manner of living,
was nearly forced into bankruptcy by
this judgment. Probably a score of
benators and representatives could bo
named who havo been in congress from
six to fifteen years, und who have been
unable to save accntoutof tlicli salaries.
Thciouro scores of members who can't
keep up with their tiudestucn's accounts.
If a congressman had simply. tho ordi
nary living oxpenscs to defray his difll
culty would not bo so great. But ho
must entertain visiting constituents, ex
pend n great deal of monoy for postngo
on private letters, travel to and from his
district, pay his election expenses, and,
in many cases, hire a clerk to help him
out with his correspondence and to run
somo of tho errands which his constitu
ents aro continually asking him to do for
them. Tho nvcrago congressman is not
at best much moro than on errand boy
and clerk for tho peoplo of his district,
seniors have u great advantago in this
respect over representatives, for each of
th-in has a secretary on tho government
pay roll, and somo of them havo besides
acomtnltteo clerk whoso cervices they
command as a reward for having been red
tho clerk's appointment. Thcro aro
plenty of newspaper men in Washington
whoso Incomes exceed thoso of senators
ami representatives. In President Cleve
land's cabinet thcro was but ono man
who lived within his salary, and In nil
probability every member of President
Harrison's cabinet will spend each year
a good deal moro than tho government
pays lilm for his services.
A prevalent notion throughout tho
country Is that government employment
in Washington is equivalent to financial
prosperity. Yet thero Is no other city of
tho size of tho capital in which so few of
tho residents own their own homes.
Government clerks nro not Uko mercan
tile employes, tradesmen, mcchnnlcs nnd
professional assistants in other cities
Thoy rarely buy or build houses, or no-
quiro tiunlc accounts. Efforts to build
medium cost houses hero and sell them
out on tho installment plan havo not met
with much success. Many suburban
town Bites havo boon laid out, but it
seems impossible to coax tho snlarled
population out of tho rented dwellings
nnd boarding houses in tho heart of tho
city, whero rents aro out of all propor
tion to tho value of tho property and
conveniences of tho houses or apart
A congressman who would surely go
bankrupt if ho had no income but his
salary Is William Mason, of Chicago.
Mr. Mason has seven children, nil lusty
nnd destructive. Shortly nfter tho ad
journment of congress Mr. Mnhon went
to the postolllco and bought 1,000
stamps, with which to answer tho letters
of olllco heekers. A thousand envelopes
were r-ent to him from tho houso station
ery room. Twenty-four hours later not
a stamp nor an envelope could bo found
In the house, and an Investigation devel
oped that the congressman's younger
children had umubcd themselves for a
wholo afternoon putting tho stumps on
tho cnvilnircs, writing letters to their
friends und playmates in Chicago und
posting thu missives In u letter box near
by- Walteh Wkllman.

wo wero startled by tho most piteous cry of

llfo, au'd tho most solemn protestations of
Innocence, A ring of truth In tho tono
btruck 1110 forcibly, and 1 nsked tlio attend

It was somo kIH brought lu for stenllng nt

enough to hear tho girl tell a Btory of wnnt

bitter things to tho man who had been tho
causo of her nrrest, but after all, la ovory

tho Judgo, who, by tho way, was a wldowor,
watched tho young woman with keen In

astonished at what transpired tho noxtday.
Tho prisoners wero, of courso, discharged at

It is a falso economy that Induces peoplo to
uso cheap butter, cheap meat, cheap flour,
and other cheap articles of food. Iu ulno
cases out of ten, cheap articles of food aro
either damaged or adulterated, and aro dear
at any price, Thoy aro seldom what thoy
purport to bo, and If not really dangerous to
uso, goncrully provo unsatisfactory to tho
purchasor or consumer. Of all cheap things,
cheap articles of food should bo most care
fully avoided. Dread that is heavy or sour
has passed tho bounds of redemption. Buttor
that has become rancid cannot bo regenerated
by the addition of coloring. Meats that aro
tainted can by no chemical process bo re
stored to their original condition, and the
secret of Infusing freshness Into stale vogo
tables and docayod fruits remains undiscov
ered. To uso low priced stuff for food Is not
only extravagant and foolish, but criminal.
It Is a flagrant violation of tho laws of
physiology and hygiono, and a reckless do
fianoo of disease and death. Bowore of low

Holding Letters for Pottage,
Tlio recent nmoudmont to tho postal laws
In rcfcrcnco to holding lotters for postage is
n great relief to this dojiartinciit and a groat
benefit to tho general pubUo. Tho amount of
kicking that it will put an end to can bo ap
preciated only by thoso who havo been in tho
business. Tho amendment modifies tho regu
lar law, so that a letter mailed in tho city
nnd addressed to somo person insldo tho city
will bo delivered without statnjw, tho postago
to bo collected from tho porson to whom it is
delivered. Heretofore n loiter thnt hod not
tho required amount of postago would bo
held, anil tho ix-Tvon to whom It was ad
dressed would Iw notified by card to call and
get tho letter, thus often causing a long dolay
of very Important Information. It was not
of rare occurrence to seo somo Influential
business man outer tho olllco, mad with rago,
and ready to nbuso us for holding his lotter
for ono cent iKwtaRO. Tho object of tho orig
inal law or regulation was to provent an ovll
that might havo existed; that Is, to provent
peoplo from spiting their cnemlos by sending
letters without bttimtM, and having tho satis
faction of seeing tho receiver loso his fow
cents for nonsenses, which would naturally
