The sociable giyen at the residence
of Judge A.N. Sulliyan last night, by
the ladies of the M. E. church, was a
grand success !n every way. The lawn
was beautifully illumioaieJ by Chinese
lanters. The sociable was reported by
all who participated to have been the
most enjoyable event of iho kind this
The Journal in an item a few days
ago came about as near telling the truth
as it 13 accustomed to. It stated that
Henry Cooper bad been receiving $ 8 per
month and that within the last few days
the government had raised the pension
to $12. The statement was a false one
as he only receiyed $ 4. previous to the
Advance made by $2 which only makes
him $ C. Probably the editor of that pa
per was looking forward to the time
when Harrison and Morton will be elect
cd, knowing that he would be treated
right by that government.
Another bold attempt was made Inst
night to relieve our county official livlnu
up Washington avenue of some more
beefsteak, but notwitstanding the two
fellows with mustaches returning from
Sullivan's social made a thorough search
in and about the cistern and well curl
for the expected morsel, they failed to
rind it. Mr. C. informs us that he will
be on the sharp look out hereafter while

a lady, who inquired for one of the cm
ployes. As the young gentleman was
not in the office at the time, he asked t he-
young lady if he could act as a substi
tute for the young man. Upon learning
that it was the other fellow she wanted
he hung'up'thc phone with the promise of
telling his friend as soon as he returned.
The young man came, the proprietor de
livered his message and the young lady
was called. The fellow, not taking leap

as follows: "Hello! Is that you Miss f

The yonng man, who was never found
guilty of making a proposal before, after

no more of the conversation, and, judg

over his face, his feelings of gratitude

words. The young gentleman and lady
have not yet interviewed each ether since
the conversation. Particulars later.

The Creat Ball Came- -
As large, if not a larger crowd than
has been seen upon the ball ground, wit
nessed the great game of ball yesterday
etween the fats and leans. Considera
ble money changed hands not less than
$."00 and the betters were putting up
their mopy on the fat players with great
confidence. Since a druggist was the
instigator of the game, we believe it was
done as a business scheme, for today the
players are purchasing arnica, St. Jacobs
Oil, Wizzard Oil and all chemicals used
as remedies for cripples, and have been,
a good part of the day, rubbing them
3clves down. The batteries for the teams
are retired for the day and leaving their
business in charge of others. The lean
men went to bat first and they succeeded
in making a score which is seldom reach
by other clubs in nine innings. With
that start and encouragement they took
the field and held the fat men down to
ten runs. After the first innng the fat
men held the opposition score down and
worked their own score up to about a tie
at the last two or three innings. Consid
erable excitement was the result of the
seventh inning when a fly was knocked
into the field and cauaht by Mr. Riddle
of the lean nine which decided the game
in their favor. He froze to the ball, and
squeezed it with what strength he still
possessed for fear it might leave him in
some way. At first he supposed, judg
ing from the disappointed expression
that overcame his face, that he had
missed it. Another expert, one of the fat
players by the name of Wm. Neville,
stole several bases in grand style. Once
when he made a base hit and was run
ning to first, the large straw hat which
he had on was caught by the wind and
blown off. He made for first base, but
not beinjr satisfied to tr tvel around the
diamond without a hat, started after it
and had it not been for his eontortive
base stealing he would surely have been
put out. Mr. James Patterson, who
played right field for the fats, caught a
rly which surprised himself and everyone
else. About seven of the lean fellows
then took charge of him and carried him
to tho home plate, affording considerable
amusement for iue spectators. Mr.
Weber, of the fat nine, became ulsabled
in the second or third inning and his po
sition in center eld was filled by C. W.
Sherman of the Journal, aho did some
excellent batting for the heavy nine.
The principal feature of the the game
was the heavy batting on both sides.
Several of tho lean men were caught
sleeping near some the base they sup
posed they were standing on and put out.
Although the fats were defeated by one
run, they fcej as confident in themselves
as ever and are wiilipg ulf. hpgh they are
all sore today, to play another game
whenever their opponents will appear on
the field. Some of the rse& fa that club
say they are willing to raise $100 for the
next game on the victory fur their side.
We believe the lean players arc afraid
try another game, as they consider their
victory only came aLcui by chance.
I he following is the score and the
number of runs made by innings by each
player. There is nothing small about

American brain seems to be Uevotinj; it:-h
to electricity just now, and there is a class
hero devotoi to this subject. In it are tin
divisions of electric signaling, telegraphy,
telephony, electric lighting, medical electric
ity, electric motive power, electricity genera

of these classes have sub-clashes, and new
classifications have to be made every j-ear oi

Since that lUue oyer eight thousand have
been granted, and we now give out over a
thousand patents or electrical iuvc-ntioi
And still electricity is in its infancy. It
has made many of the big fortunes of today,
and tho Pell to!phone and the Western
Union telegraph are founded upon it. There
are now electric street cars in many of the
cities of the country, and a company has been
formed tj Ralli'more to run a lightning ex
press over an elevated railroad" across" the
country for the carrying of mail and import
ant express matter.' The'car used will be, I
understand, about the size of the average dry
goods box, and tha sp.oed will be 600 miles an
hour. This will beat the telegraph and pneu

the business of the country. By it a letter in

a decade ago, Telephone Bell, who is now
incton "on his UDDers" and trying to sell bis
telephone stock for ten cents on the dollar.
Shortly before this he was teaching a deaf
and dumb school in Boston, and his pocket
book was in a continual state' of leanness.
Now he has an income of hundreds of dollars
a day. He is surrounded by fine pictures,
owns a magnificent residence, and his soul
rejoices in all tho fatness which money can
Tho telephone gave a great impetus to elec
tricai inventions. Ice electric light soon
touowed it, and there is a millionaire in
Cleveland, named Brush, who was working
at $lo a week before he struck tho light which
turned his poverty into fabulous wealth. 1
met an assistant of Edison in New York last
week, and he tells me that the phonograph,
which is to be run by a small electric motor,
is about perfected, and that it will bo in gen

less than $100, and one can talk his ideas into
it and have them reproduced in the samo

Bringing Oat a New Novel.
Suppose I, as an American author, write a
novel, and arrange with a publisher to bring
it out at the price of one dollar a volume, or
fifty cents paper. If he has confidence in
the book, the first edition will be 1,000 copies;
my share of the proceeds, on the ordinary
ten cent basis, is $100, payable at the end of
the year. If I live by my pen, I must sub
sist during that year on nothing at all; and
when 1 get my $100 I must pay out of it my
debts for that past year, and, probably, my
present funeral expenses; for who can live
on thirty-five cents a- day, even if he were
not obliged to starve to death before he could
enter upon the enjoyment of that princely
income? But let us be extravagant and
Utopian let us say that my edition is 5,000
copies, instead of 1,000. In that case which
perhaps occurs as often as once in a thousand
times my reward amounts to the sum of no
less than $o00; assuming, of course, what is
never the fact, that all the copies sold are in
the dollar cloth form, and none in the fifty

novelists who make more than a thousand

want to eat and drink, and three of the best
cigars apiece afterward, and a hack to take
