proprietor of a hand organ, which, under
tho iiutnipulatlon of an Italian, wiih at
that very moment grinding out "Johnny
Got Your (tun," Kvury morning for
wookft I hiivoMcou this samo porformauco
going on tn front or Senator Stanford'
honxo. and on Inqiilry I loarnod that tlio
aentttor is u xtoady etistoiner of this tun
nioal bngado, and that every morning ex
cept Sunday ho throws out ilfty conts to
tbo llttlo old tninntrol. Sonator Stttn
ford's tavorito air is tho ono which I hnvo
jnst mentioned mid it In never omitted
from tho moniing programino.
Not far from Sonator Stanford's, be
fore tlio hotiso of a tnombor of tho
oabinot, I saw a carrlago standing, tho
drtvor on the box fant aaloop. 1 know
the John front Imiulrios which 1 havo
tuad occanton to make of him concerning
tb whoronbonU of his omployor, and so
I stopped and woke him tip, fearing that
tf caught itnloop at bin post bo might got
lato trouble. He had drivon up at 0
ta the morning to take "Mr. Secretary"
to his office in the "ofllco carriage " An
office carriage, the nnlnitiated should
know, Is a vohiclo ownod and uialntaiuod
bj the govomruont for tho uno of cabiuet
ministers. Undo Sam buys tho outfit,
keeps it tn hln own stable and biros tho
driver and othor holp. Tho driver of an
official carnago is about tho hardest
worked man I know of in Washington.
His cab Is usod for all sorts of purposes,
not only by tho cablnot ministor, but by
the mom born of his family. Tho first
thing tn tho morning is to tako tbo sec
retary to ntn dully toil. Then soino of
tbo ladios of tho family want to go shop
ping At I o'clock tho socrotury must
rw driven to his luncheon, and tbo after
noon is put in racing about tho city
making social culls. After dinnor thore
is a theater party or evoning reception,
and tbo ladles of tho family must bo
waited for. Ofton a ball koops thorn out
till "i tn tho morning, but it does not
matter how late tho hour, tho official
carnago must lo at hand tho niomont it
in wanted. No wonder my acquaintance,
tbe driver was fast iwleep on his box.
'It is pretty hard work," said ho, as I
woke him up: "hard on tbo horses and
nardor on mo. During tho wintor wo
keep two paint of horsos for this car
nage and wear them both pretty well out
oflforo summer. I do all tho driving."
At noon I called ut tho war dopart
moot to noe Secretary Blkins. 1 found
nitu ui the corner of u largo and mag
nificent apartment, a callor on ono side
of him ami a stouogrnphor on tho other.

Pn my way to tho Cupitol 1 saw on tho

in fact it was Chutruian Blount or the

who wan brought conspicuously before

tail, proli.ihly left him by hln ancestors,
which, though hardly up to tho latest
stylo, answers very well ror a dre.si gar
ment, In Congress Mr. Blount wears
always a ready mado suit of clothes
which could not have cost more than
twelvo dollars, and on tho ntreot ho may
bo picked out of a thousand by tho way
in which ho wears hln soft felt hat well

during tlio eighteen years ho has been a

tolerably well to do man, and tf tho mjo
pie of his district conclude they don't
want him any moro after twonty yearn
of service, which in very unlikely, ho will
have something to fall back upon besides
tho doubtful prcHttgo of being an ox
congressman with a constitutional Ina
bility to make a success of anything else
lu tho world, as Is the case with most of
the men who retire from a public caroor
of any groat length
Seeing Chairman Blount ambling along
reminded a friend of mine, with whom I
walked up the aveiiuo, of a story alxmt
the somewhat fainons dinner given by
Seuor Montt, the Chilian minister, about
six weeks ago 'I was at that dinner.'
said my friend, "and it was lu some re
spects the limist dinner I ovor attended
in Washington, Wo were positively em
barrassed by tho profusion and richness
of tho dishes, Everything which an urlt
tocratlc caterer could think of to swell
tho cost of a dinner had boon provided.
And an to wine we could no moro than
take a sip of each or the kinds served. It
was Indeed a sumptuous dinner, but
thin is not what I wanted to tell you
about. After the coffee, when tho gen
tlemen had retired to tho smoking room
tho conversation partook of tlio nature
or a discussion or tho Chilian situation
which wan at that tiino rather threaten

or a United States senator making a llt

tho caso, his remarks being applauded
by other senators as well as by ovory

It was a dull day In tho houso and
sonato, and I saw very littlo in oltliei
end of tho Capitol worth montioniug,
unless it might bo additional ovidcuce
that tho lomou is bocoming tho favorite
adjunct of congressional oratory. In the
houso i saw no fowor than (Ivo members
use u lomon instead of a glass of water
whilo making a speech, and during the
course of a half hour's talk on tho rules
Mr. McMilliu usod up two or three
lotuons. In tho sonato Mr. Coko, of
Toxos. bad tho honor of introducing the
lemon stylo of oratory, and now a large
number or senators moisten thoir lips

In the supremo court tho scones wore

strangor tho supremo court is awo in

First I was Lady Wildo's son, then Oscar

if I wore Mrs. Wildo 1 would not let
him bo callod "Wllllo." but plain old
"William," for thoro is much in a nnmo.
