HOTELS MUST COME TO IT.
Mr. Merrtflelal Telia of Fanny Thins
About Future Hotel Keeping.
"The day will come, and long la-fore
we date our letter 15)19, when the hot-Is
in this country will have improvements
which will muke the quests fwl tli.it
they have nothing to find fault with.
Certainly that will le a great tieriod a
8iirpririiir one to thy much abused hotel
E. L. Merrifield, president of tho
Hotel Keepers' association, looked very
serious as he uttered these word,
"What will those improvements le?
Many, very many; but just now I will
mention only one or two, lest pome
hotels bejiu the new styles lieforo iwo
ple are used to the change from one sys
tem to another. Here's one, for in
stance: Tho hotels will be bo big in a
few years that when a guest gets up,
say on tho twenty-ninth lloor, he'll find
as he steps out of the elevator that his
room is a quarter of a mile away, count
ing all the halls and corners he'll have
to travel through hefore he gets there.
"Well, the halls will le broad, and
electric cars, light and airy as wicker
baskets, will pass along every few min
utes. All ho will have to do when he
gets on his lloor is to press a button
the car will do the rest. It will whiz
down his way with the conductor at tho
wheel like any cable car outdoors at
present, pick him up and he's in his
room before lie's had time to say Jack
' "You smile. I don't, for I'm serious.
More than that, hotels will probably
have private elevators for every largo
parlor room on top floors after the elec
tric car gets 'behind the age.'
"Take 6pace? Of course. But what
of that? The hotel keeper is supposed
to be the only man who must spend all
he makes to benefit his guests. He does
not work for a living, like ordinary men.
Not he; his fate from boyhood is mapjKd
out to do everything he can to make
others happy at his expense. But to re
sume. The private elevator of each
room will be soon followed if not ac
companied by pneumatic tubes for
trunks and baby carriages with the ba
bies in them, and smaller ones for let
ters and bundles.
"More than tliat. A visitor will, I feel
certain, be shot up through the tubes
after the guests have seen their cards
and piped down, 'All right, 6end him
up." It will be very stagelike to see an
apparent closet door fly open quickly
and the friend of your better days in
full dress and hat in hand step out as
one does in and out of a carriage in the
street and greet you with a smile, 'How
are you, old man?' or words to that effect.
"Then think of the way overtaxed
tailors can be avoided, too, by their cus
tomers among the guests who have 'for
gotten' to settle up. How? Easily.
There will be no hotel registry, for the
moment a guest is assigned to a room he
will probably walk up to a machine,
rattle over a few keys with a ien while
writing his name, and just as he signs it
it will appear on a card on the inside of
the proprietor's private office. Names
are signed miles away now by wire or
dispatches. Well, hotel men are close at
haud in this signature business. I hope
to live long" enough to see all the im
provements." Mr. Merrifield's eyes twinkled as he
concluded: "When the Hotel Keepers'
association meets one of these great im
provements is to be tested. Which one
it will be I don't know yet, but that the
electric car in the hallways is a near
future event in hotel improvements is a
dead certainty." New York Herald.
An Awkward Blunder.
At a certain court of justice an awk
ward blunder was made by the prisoner
in the dock. He was being tried for
murder and the evidence was almost
wholly circumstantial, a chief portion of
it being a hat of the ordinary "billycock"
pattern that had been found close to
the scene of the crime, and which, more
over, was sworn to as the prisoner's.
Counsel for the defense expatiated upon
the commonness of hats of the kind.
"You, gentlemen," he said, "no doubt
each of you has just such a hat as this.
Beware, then, how you condemn a fel
low creature on such a piece of evi
dence," and so forth. In the end the
man was acquitted, but just as he was
leaving the dock he turned in a respect
ful manner to the judge and said, "If
you please, my lord, may I 'ave my 'at?"
London Public Opinion.
Marriage by Proxy.
A curious custom among the rulers of
the Old World is marriage by proxy.
For instance, Francis II, the ex-king of
Naples, was wedded by proxy in 1859 to
Maria, a duchess of Bavaria. Of course
the marriage by proxy goes no further
than the ceremony. Exactly why it
should be done at all is not clear by past
or present history, unless to save the
prince the trouble of going after his wife
and give her a decent excuse for coming
In the case of Francis, he had never
seen Maria, and their first interview is
said to have been attended with consid
erable disappointment. In fact, if the
young man had not been already mar
ried by proxy he would probably have
never married the lady at all. Drake's
Used to Smoke in Church.
The Rev. Dr. Parr, when perpetual
curate of Hatton, Warwickshire, which
living he held from 1783 to 1790, regu
larly smoked in the vestry while the
congregation were singing long hymns,
chosen for the purpose, immediately be
fore the sermon. The doctor was wont
to exclaim, "My people like long hyinns,
but I prefer a long pipe." All the Year
What Free Silrer Means.
By "free silver" is meant the free
coinage of silver, the placing of silver
on an equality with gold in the mints of
the United States.. At present any man
who has gold can get it coined without
charge; but a man who has silver bul
lion must sell it to the government,
which coins it or issues certificates
against it. New York Sun.

Another woman in the presence of an
unusually annoying circumstance w;i
observed to unhook ami rehook her
jfown. The rebooking miscarried sev
eral times to her great impatience. Sin
was asked why then had she unhooked
it. Her answer was that hooks and eyes
were the most disagreeable things ever
iuvented. One always began to hook
them in the middle, and tle chances
were ten to one that you linked the
wrong pair. But this you did not know
until you were half through ami one
sido came out ahead. So with that,
and the strain upon your fingers, you
were naturally exasperated, and as they
were only hooks and eyes it didn t much'
; matter what you said. Willi the chance
to free your mind oilier disagreeable
things seemed almost pleasant.
It will bo observed tiiat it occurred to
neither of these womeu, who were both
religious, to fall on their knees ami ask
in the old fashioned way to lo delivered
from anger and ill feeling. This was
, not liecau.se they distrusted the ellicacy
of this method, but simply In-causo they
hadn't at the moment, and seldom had,

Such s Romantic Affair.
She was a convalescent from la grippe,
and as she leaned back in the depths of
ber easy chair she played with the roses
In her lap, which had been brought her
by the first caller she had been able to
receive, and smiled over some stories ho
was telling her of a summer at well.
Te'll only say at a certain fashionable
watering place on Narragansett bay.
-'One of the beauties whom I used to sHi
at the casino," said he, "was a young
married belle about twenty-three or
four, I should think, and her husband
was about sixty, and it was great fun
watching them. There was such a good
utory, bona fide truth it was. too. about
their engagement. He called at her
home one evening and offered his heart,
hand and fortune iu correct style.
Pretty Miss Bud said she 'must ask
mamma,' and coyly tripod up stairs to
mamma, who told her that every girl
did not get such a chance as that, and of
course she was to accept him.
"Down she went, picturing the ardent
lover awaiting her return with anxious,
throbbing heart and found the old gen
tleman comfortably asleep in the big
gest armchair, while an occasional snore
attested to the depth of his slumbers."
"I hop. 6he didn't wake the poor old
thinf np," said the convalescent, when
she got her breath again after her laugh.
"Oh, yes she did. Catch her losing that
chance! She woke him up and told him
it was all right and she'd have him."
Bohton Saturday Gazette.
Thackeray's Ileal is:n.
Thackeray is verily as great a realist
as a great artist can be. He prides him
fcelf 6n presenting life as it is, unseas
oned by the hot spices of artificial ro
mance. Nay, he employs devices to en
trap the credulity of the reader the de
vice, for example, of making Arthur
Pendennis, whom we know independ
ently, tell the story of his young friend
('live Newcome, and the noble, meek
hearted gentleman with whom he had
seen the boy at the Cave of Harmony.
Yes, Thackeray is a great realist, if
f ver there was one. His characters are
no decorative figments to amuse our
fancy. They have become some of the
men and women we know best personal
friends or foes of our own. It consoles
us for living in these late days of a re
formed parliament that we have lived
late enough to have known Colonel Nev:
come. They were no tears of unreal
sentiment that we wept over his martyr,
dom; it was a very genuine itch we felt
to kick Barnes. Blackwood's Magazine.
The Necessity of the Times.
Inventive faculty will not have
reached high tide until some one per
fects an envelope flap warranted to
stick. One of the considerable discom
forts of life takes the form of a non
adhesive mucilage that allows the en
velope upon which it is placed to peel
open again and again as it is pressed
down, until in a fine frenzy the letter
writer is driven hither and yon for real
mucilage. And the finer the quality of
the stationery the more trials lie in the
wake of the envelope.
If they are trusted to the mails with
out an extra dab of mucilage, they may
be depended upon to arrive at their des
tination invitingly open or accessible
to the sneakish individual, who in spite
of our civilization does exist, who is ca
pable of going against all written aud
unwritten laws and tampering with a
seal. A padlocked envelope is one of
the necessities of the times. Boston
