ices, grnjes, imaches, etc. I was Ui in
oiu; of tlu:s plai-s se.veral times, and I was
clinrmed. The piysian fields at night are 11
s;iie of enchantment. The Jardin Mabillo
is not in existence any more. The Elysian
-nvenue'is broad, beautifully futved with as
phaltum, brillantly lighted on each side with
Has. The vehicles going up and down on
cither side at night, reminds me of a torch
light procession, and as far as the eye can
l-each. The lamps on this avenue look like a
string of stars. This magnificent avenue is'
Hanked with handsome palaces. Here live
tho lUitlisciiilds, Munro, tho banker, andf
many others. This aveuue is a fashiona
ble promenade. From 3 to o'clock
you shu numerous carriages, ridors
and iedestrians on their way to the Bois de
Boulogne. At the "Champs Elysoos" one can
witnesses the characteristic phases of Parisian
life. The "Bois de Boulogne" is a beautiful
ark, covering an area of 2,250 acres, bounded
by the fortifications of Paris. There are
lieautiful drives, rivers, lakes which are used
for skating in winter and boating in summer.
It is romantic and charming, and wo drive
through the Bois frequently. The garden of
Tuileries is beautiful, filled with colossal
statuary, magnificent fountains, lakes filled
with black and white swans, and I can't tell
you all. There is sea rely a square in this
city that is not ornamented with immense
fountains and statuary in bronze and mar
ble. I spent three days in tho palace of the
Ixjuvre looking at paintings, statuary, jewel.
and all kinds of arts. The Palais Royal is a
grand palace and it open e.1 into a court
tilled with flowers and fountains. At 12
o'clock a cannon is fired by the heat of the
sun. This palace is used for handsome
stores. A fine band of music is in
1 he garden. I also visited the palace of
Luxembourg and its lovely fountain. I have
been to see the opera-house, the graud
t in the world. It cost $10,000,000. I can't
describe it; it is a poem in gold, bronze, mar
ble of every kind and color, floors of mosaic,
bronze and marble figures, ceilings frescoed,
etc, I saw "li'Africaine." I never saw any
thing mounted so gorgeously or, the stage be
t'ore and the singing was divine. There were
Sixi persons on the stage at once. A Vent to
the EJeu theatre, the finest in the world; &J
in the ballet. Went to the churches which
are all suierb.
1 visited tho touib of Napoleon 1. and did
not think there was anything so handsome in
the world as the tomb and chapel. It is in
tlie church of the Hotel of Invalids, tho homo
of the veteran soldiers, a magnificent place,
with museum of artillery containing armors
worn by different monurchs of France.
Went into two courts. All dignity and
grandeur: carpeted beautifully. Behind the
judge on the wall is a large picture cf the
crucifix. This is in all tho courts. AVent into
the gallery of L-juis IX. of France. Visited

The changes of life, however, were soon
felt in Greeley's little circle. Miss Fuller
went to Italy and witnessed the capture of
Rome by tho French, while Greeley's family
was visited by cholera, which carried off that
lovely boy. Greeley thus mentioned this be
reavement in one of his letters to his former
contributor: "Ab, Margaret, the world is
growing dark around us. You mourn that
Rome has fallen; we mourn, for Pickie is
dead." Greeley then abandoned this
blighted spot, and as the Harlem road
had been sufficiently extended he
bought in 1S53 a building lot just large enough
for a house, being determined to test the
place before enlarging his purchase. Finding
it both convenient and healthy, be gradually
increased his domain until instead of tho
original one-eighth of an acre it included
seventy -eight acres, being the largest farm
ever worked by a New York editor. Most of
Greeley's improvements were chimerical. He
built a dam, for instance, in order to supply
the house wi.h water. After $1,000 bad been
thus invested the dam broke and the scheme
was abandoned. Sixty thousand dollars
were invested in improvements, and yet the
farm to-day Is not worth one third ef that

In New York and Brooklyn there are 200,-
000 young men and 300.000 young ladies
Each young man has from four to six girls
and every young lady has from four to six
reliable young men. In tho combined cities
is a population of 1 ,000,00 sweethearts and
1,000,000 beaux, The social relations of so
vast a number must le highly complicated
The expense of chivalric attention to the I,-

cost falls on 200,1X10 youths, instead of five
times that numlier.

"I pay my bill poster morn than my lead

Tho reduction in price of The Daily Timea
from 4 cents to 2 cent jer copy is the first
decided symptom in American journalism of
a movement which had ita beginning in the
penny press of London a dozen years ago.
The abolition of the stamp duty and the
cheapening of the cost of white paper made
it possible for publishers in Great Britain to
sell a uewspaiier of large size and of a high
standard of ability at a price the equivalent
of 2 cents in our money. The battle between
the high-priced and the low-priced papers in
London has been decided, as was inevitable
if the low-priced ones should survive the
perils of infancy, in favor of the latter. All
the high-priced newspapers of London except
The Times, have been driven one by one to
follow the example of The Daily Telegraph
by reducing their price to 1 penny. Tho
Times has held out so far, but at such cost in
tho way of circulation that it has latterly
adopted the expedient of publishing a small
sheet, called The Summary, at the price of a
half-penny, in order to meet the intolerable
comiietition of The Telegraph, Standard, and
Daily News. The Summary is a condensation
of the news and editorials of The Times, pub
lished at one-sixth of the price of The Times
itself ; and it remains to be seen whether it
will have the effect intended by its inventors
of driving the penny papers out of the field,
or whether it will complete the work which
the penny press has begun, of driving The
.Times out of the field. Such contests are
'alwaysslow in producing their final results.
It would not be surprising if the result in this
case were a reduction in the price of The
Times to 1 penny, and the suppression of its
subordinate, The Summary.
The course of English journalism has been
watched with the deepest interest by all pub
lishers of newspapers in America, and the
conviction has been gaining ground tha they
must sooner or later follow suit. The Sun
took up the same line of battle in New York
when it began "to "give Its readers, in con
densed but methodical and intelligible shape,
all the news of the day,' together with careful
editorial treatment, for the price of 2 cents.
Its success forced The Herald a few years
ago to reduce its price from 4 cents
to three. Since that time a new crop of
cheap papers has come up the Morning
Journal, The Star, and Truth (1 cent), and
The AArorld has lowered its price, first to 3
and latterly to 2 cents. The World being
a member of the Associated Press, was
enabled to publish all the important news of
the day at a price one-third less than that of
The Herald, and at one-half the price charged
by The Times and The Tribune. It was not,
we presume, the competition of The Arorld
that decided The Times to reduce its price,
but rather the whole concatenation of cir
cumstances and the general drift of journal
ism in England and America.

tyuihols of immortality, were slowly opening
and closing their largo wings in the last
worm sunshine of the year. I looked around,
but nolM-.dy was in sight. All was still.
Again there camea voice, "The ace of beans
takes the trick!" At last I saw, a little way
I off, a vault. Three steps led down
j to it, and the door was ajar,
j Descending the broken stairs, I put a
; hand on the unwilling door. It yielded, and
a curious interior was revealed. It was a
little room, dimly lighted, whose only furni
ture consisted of cofiius, and around one of
them that rested npon trestles were three sol
diers. There were only four sound arms and
five legs to divide among them. They had
pulled two coffins from the wall to serve for
seats, and they were in the midst of a game
of cards. They looked up an instant and
went on with the deal and the play. Noth
ing equals the nonchalance of veterans at
tbe front, where the hum of bullets is as
familiar as the bum of bees among tbe
clover. I looked on awhile, and stepped up
and out into the free air. Near me was a
small - marble lamb lying upon a slab,
There is no flock, however watched and
But one dead lamb is there.
It bad lost an ear by a bullet, and one of its
feet was carried clean away. So far it did
not matter much, as it had no possible use foi
the three that were left it Some idle musket,
for want of higher game, had made a target
of it. Tbe whole scene set off most strikingly
the quiet reverence for the dead fifty years
The fpa and Downs of Lawn Tennis.
It is seldom that anything of eventful im
portance arises from the playing of lawn
tennis. However, a young fellow has just
tieen beaten out of $100,000 by it, and it hap
pened in this way. He was playing lawn
tennis with his sweetheart; her mamma a
widow lady was seated under the green
wood tree, conversing with an admirer of
hers, one she hoped to bring to tbe front
In the near future. He was just telling her
that she looked as youthful as her daugh
ter a standing assertion and she
softly acknowledged the sweet impeach
ment. Just then, her daughter's lover
raised his snow-shoe to send the ball over into
tbe next county, when the infernal imple
ment flew from his hand, made a tangent on
tbe tree, whacked the old lady over tbe head
and knocked off her beautiful wig; it then
performed a semi-circle upon ma's jaw, and
sent a shower of teeth into her lap; all dis
closing to tbe astonished old admirer a poor,
bald-headed, slippery-lipped, wagging-jawed
female. He bid her a hasty good evening and
took his departure. The young man who was
the cause of this fateful calamity poured
forth profuse apologies, but all to no avaiL
The old lady said she would not allow her
laughter to marry a man who so easily lost
his grip. He went with tears iu his eyes.
Plum Dan in Trousers.
California Cor. New York Tribune.
Harvey says that once on his ship the crew
agreed to lump their allowance on a holiday
and have one gigantic plum dull ror all
hands In default of an adequate pudding
cloth they boiled it in a pair of clean duck
trousers, and it was brought to the table un
broken, looking like the legs and waist of
some unfortunate gentleman mottled all over
wit h purple spots. He adds that the captain,
who cunie to see if the men were comfortable,
arrived just in time to be astonished by the
spectacle. Perhaps we might have been
tempted to do something of the kind; only by
the time plum duff was revealed to us our
camp could not furnish a whole pair of

The avenue for the drive from the nagua
Is one of the most beautiful in tho world. It
is lined on either side by tall, stately tree
that arch evenly and gracefully above, and
the primeval stretch of forest on either side
is broken only by tbe white paths cut through
it. Along this avenue groups' of the pic
turesque peasants are to be seen in the morn
ing going to or returning from the hague,
They go in clusters, and men and women are
rarely seen together. The women seem to do
most of the work. You will see . a Dutch
woman drawing a cart full of vegetables
while her husband walks behind with ' his
hands under his iilue blouse and a pipe in his
mouth. You will see women drawing canal
boats Like mules along , the ; watery high
ways. Yet they are 'a , patient, finely devel
oped, strong, and to all outovaru appear
ances, a contented race. The women, when
fixed up, have a band of metal which clasps
tbe head on ' either side, and extends under
tbe back hair. Then long pins ' with big
round beads in silverorj gilt filagree, are
thrust under these bands at either side
of the head, and a flounced cap covers
the whole. The wooden shoes are chiefly
worn, but of late a faint decoration "appears
npon them in . the shape of .' an imitation
row. of buttons. The stockings are
usually of thick blue yarn, and tho dresses
do . not come within two inches of
the ankle. The head is used as much as by
the negroes of the south. The women march
from the sea-shore to the Hague with baskets
of fish on their heads stepping energetically
along with knitting in their hands or smaller
baskets. Tbe men of the peasant class are
taciturn, stolid strong, and evidently, con
tented. The Dutchman's pride in his coun
try is intense and his satisfaction is com
plete. There can be no substitute in bis mind
for the little country wrested from tbe em
brace of the sea, with its arteries of canals
and ' long-armed wind-mills that are con
stantly in motion.
Behind the Seenes.
New York Letter in Utica Observer.
"These people," said a manager with whom
I talked between acts about tbe principals in
the cast, "are grand opera misfits. That
tenor, at whose efforts the audience . is in
clined to snicker, was educated . for - Italian
opera. If he were making to-night as much
of a bit as the soprano is achieving, he
wouldn't be much happier than'he is now.
Why? Because she is undoubtedly saying
to herself, 'I ought to be in grand opera in
stead of here. If I can get so much applause
for my singing in this comic trash, I could do
the same at the Academy of Music' That's
tbe way with them alL The comic opera
people are unnappy oecause tney re not in
grand opera, and the comedians invariably
aspire to tragedy." Over at the biggest
theatre in the Bowery as to seating
capacity the biggest in America I
found last evening a set of actors who had
good reason to feel professionally oppressed.
They were performing 'Nobody's Claim," a
western border drama, and from the two
stars to the numerous supers all were subor
dinated to beasts and the elements. A dog
bad the climax of one act to himself in the
biting of the villain, a horse commanded the
situation at another fall of the curtain, and
fire distracted all attention from the acting
in the crowning episode. Nowhere in the
play was there much dependence upon the
human voice-for producing an exciting ef
fect. The orchestra made more noise than
the speakers during tbe thrilling passages,
and firearms beat the mouths of the most
vigorous declaimers. It has been demon
strated, however, that the Bowery has ap
preciation for better dramatic things. Two
large theatres have been newly opened this
season in that street and its northern exten
sion. Third avenue, making three legitimate
houses, and the engagements made by tho
managers of these places include the entire
range of dramatic combinations, with no
preference for the rude or mechanicaL It
was long a mistaken conclusion that the east
side had an ignorant and vicious population.
Odd Things the Dear and Onmk
A very curious thing about deaf mutes in
the rapidity with which they learn the mean
ing and the use of slang words and phrases.
The ordinary street language of the day
seems to be every bit as familiar to them as
it is to people whose organs of hearing are
not impaired, and they will say, in their own
way, " You bet your boots! " or, " You bet
your sweet life!" with as much ease and. grace
as if they had had it at their tongue's end all
their lives. One of the afflicted young men
whom I asked for an explanation of this re
markable fact said the deaf mutes got their
knowledge of slang from tho newspapers,
that they were great readers of tbe papers,
and snapped up a new phrase or word just
the moment it made it appearance. They
not only use slang in writing, but also in
their sign language.
Lost Its Romance.
Chicago Inter Ocean.
"I tell you, pard," said old Simmy Cannon,
a guide, "tho west has lost its romance. Only
a little while ago, it seems to me, where once
there was nothing bat- the whoop of the In
dians and tiie song of the six-shooter; now
there are railroads and churches and com
mercial men and high schools and three-card-monte
men and lecturers and daily news
papers and every little -while a natural death.
Why, within two months, if tho blasted
papers tell the truth, several men have -died
in Wyoming of disease. I tell you, it looks
as though usiold-tiraers would have to move
away. AUheivwe-tiave to wait for lingering
disease towfT-ng out, its time to tghx out

The sermon of a prominent minister that
recently came into the possession- of a vandal

long enough to count twentyfive- after this
'Close bible with violent slam

attitude of adoration at this point;" "Sarcas
tic wave of hand," etc And yet ministers
declaim against tho theatric art.
