Trt British Embasay
Of the many notable residences
at the national capital, there is
none of more individual and
popular interest than the square
structure of red brick occupying
an ample corner at Connecticut
Avenue and sreet. which is the
home of the Hritieh embassy.
The neatly kept square, with its
massive mansion, roomy stables,
and trim plots of lawn and shrub
bery, constitutes, as the exclusive
property of the Kiijjlish govern
ment, a truly Hritish possession in
the very stronghold of our own
United States. This establishment
has set ved for nearly twenty year
as the ministerial residence, and
was the tirst erected for that pur
pose and owned by a foreign
As a matter of fact, it is the most
import. int of all the foreign lega
tions at Washington, the interests
bjing legion which bind together
the two great Knjjlish sneakitiir
nations ot the world; and most
momentous questions are contin
ually before the two power for
consideration and settlement.
Knglaud may sometime scold
her lusty oifspring, like the cross
old lady she is reputed to be,
but aside from the vist material
interests which she holds Jin every
state in the 1'uion, there exists an
undercurrent of genuine good
feeling between the Knglish people
and their American .ousinw. How
ever reluctantly the independence
of the colonies was acknowledged
by Knglaud, she wis quick to see
the importance of placeing her
representative at the new seat of
government; and, with few in
tervals, since the permanent
establishment of the Republic
there has been an Knglish minister
at Washington. Some of the most
brilliant diplomatists of Great
Britain have served here.
The Knglish Kmbassy, both in
plan and appearance, preserves all
the traditions of the mother
country. Its solid, uncompromising
front is topped by the inevitable
mansard roof, is only saved from
positive ugliness by a broad porte
cochere which bears the Knglish
coat-of-nrms, and makes a pictures
(pie break in its general severity
Like the staring inhospitable fronts
of so many Knglish town-house",
which, to the surprise of the
American tourist, often enclose the
cheeriest and brightest of interiors,
the ungracious exterior of the
Knglish Kmbassy only serves to
heighten the contrast of its sunny,
spacious rooms, and the atmos
phere of genial hospitality which
pervades every nook and corner.

A HAPPY MAN.
Th I Jul nay of Hit Menial flataar a
Happy On, lie Knows No Tomorrow.
I have seen at lart a happy man, the
happiest I ever knew. He is perhaps 45
years old, and hi happiness has been un
broken for two years or more.
Hear Ids story. Ha is a Kontletnan in
every sense of the word. He has means.
Social position and a larjje circle of de
voted relatives and friends. He has a
fine physique, a handsome face. Hut
we did not call him a happy man, "such
a happy man," until two years ago, when
the great change came. He never mar
ried, and the Miss X. of whom I tell you
was no mere to him than his lifelong
comrade, his best of fri nds an old
neighbor, related to him in many ways,
but never by the tender tie.
Perhaps he had been more of an in
valid than he knew or than his friends
dreamed. One summer day he went to
the little lake nut far from his native
village, a popular inland resort, and
sjK'iit what he calh d upon his return
that night "a perfect day." Slues wt re
never bluer, he said, nor tlowers fairer
nor the lake so lovtly to him as upon
that day. Only he had expected to
meet Mi--s X. there and to have hail
their usual sail together.
He would go again on the morrow,
take her with him and so double and in
crease the joy. lie went to her house
that evening to play whist an usual. It
was Saturday. IShe hud gone to spend
Sunday at the lak, . lie wi.s very glad
she had gone, he said; he would join her
the next day. During the g one he al
luded many time to the happy day he
bad passed. And what is there in life
after all like a tomorrow full of promise?
That night after reaching his room he
bad a paralytic stroke not a severe one,
only a blight shock, but it clouded his
brain, if we can call that a cloud which
fixed forever in his mind the happiness
reigning there when it came.
Kvery day since then has been that
happy Saturday to him. lie has just re
turned from tne lake. No matter if the
snow is drifting or the rain is iH iiting
the windows, it has been u jerfect day,
everything in divine harmony. He will
go over to X.'s for a game of whist.
Even if Miss X. meets him he asks if she
is at home, us if he were adilres-ing seme
one else; then he is so glad slie is up at
the lake; ho is going liack tomorrow;
there is every sign of perfect weather,
etc., all in his old time charming way.
Then he takes up his cards and plays a
capital game and goes home in the sweet
expectation of a happy tomorrow.
All else in life seems a blank to him.
In that one fair niche of memory ho Lees
all of the past, the present and the fu
ture. He appears to be reading often
times when tho book ho holds ii up side
down. Death means nothing to him.
When his friends die, he does wot weep
nor question nor miss them. He has had
such a happy day, and he is going to re
peat it tomorrow.
Naturally his case is of interest to
specialists. Ho is never troublesome. He
goes about the village and exchanges cor
dial greetings. Nor does he always speak
of what is in possession of his mind, un
less yon hold him too long. Then he has
Mcnso for breaking away.
QuestionIf that last day of his men
tal balance had been an unhappy one,
ay a day black with anguish or remorse
or embittered with rage and revenge,
would he. now be the opposite of what he
is a wild leiist in toils the remainder of
his life the horrible evolution of an inci
dental, who knows but an accident,
mood? Atlantic Monthly.
From Klrhri to Abject Poverty.
An old man with a thin, bent form and
a few l(x.'ks of white hair peeping from
beneath a rusty old fashioned silk hat
hobbled painfully through Broad street
one afternoon last week and took his
stand near the Mills building. He leaned
wearily on his stout stick and appeared
to 1h in pain. His manner was abso
lutely passive. He paid no attention to
surrounding objects ami spoke to no per
m. He simply stood still. Within half
in hour after the close of business in the
exchanges at least half a dozen well
known brokers in passing thisold gentle
man slyly slipped a coin or a crumpled
note into his hand. "Who is that old
nian?" asked the phase writer of a gen
tleman who is regarded as a landmark in
"I won't mention his name." was the
reply, "but he used to be one of the high
rollers down here. He was probably
worth a couple of millions once and
was for years one of the best customers

prosjK'rous men who give him a quarter

The practice of defacing natural seen
?ry with great advertisements is not so
! prevalent in tho United States as it was
i generation ago, and public sentiment
is steadily growing stronger ugaiust it.
This practice has recently developed in
England to such an extent that lovers of
nature recognize that some definite ac
tion must lw taken. The Thames val
ley, the most picturesque mountain spots
.n Wales and the loveliest corners of
Devonshire have been greatly injured by
mge advertisements. The well known
irehitect, Mr. Waterliouse, has pro
posed that if they cannot actually bo
prohibited they should at least be di
minished by the imposition of a heavy

A Ttrrlblt Threat.
A janitor in a bine nhfrt was cleaning
the windows of a bank at Broadway and
Park rise the other day after office
honre, when a tramp cme along, who,
arter eying mm a few moments with
envy, yelled to him:
"Hello, there, yon chap in the bank,
can't yon throw a fellow out a little
money? I'm clean broke, and almost
anything would le welcome."
The janitor went on cleaning the win
flows. He heard what the tramp said,
but wouldn't admit it.
The tramp paused a few moments and
th en yelled: "Come, now, don't lie a hog.
There must be a million dollars in there,
and all you've got to do is to chuck a
bundle of it out. Are you going to do
it or aren't you':'"
Still no response,
The tramp liegan to chafe under the
galling hauteur with which he was be
"If yon don't give me some of that
money, I'll start a report that the bunk's
in trouble." lie yiiled. "If ever there
was a lirst rate liog, it's you."
After 10 minutes had elapsid and no
one had taken the least notice of the
tramp he began to walk slowly away.
As he reached the gutter he turned
round, shook his fist at the window clean
er and muttered:
"When the commune is declared, any
one who wants money will only Imve to
walk into a bank and ask for it. I'll be
there, my beauty, when tho day conies,
and I'll point you out to the fellow citi
zens as an insolent and bloated svinbol
of wealth. You just wait, my friend,
till the call to arms is sounded, and
you'll find mo right on the spot ready to
tell what I know about tho enemies of
the proletariat." New York Herald.

There is one difference between Amer
ican and European tin titers as marked as
their schedule of prices and their usher
ing system, and that is in tho mutter of
"dressers," The European manager em
ploys about half a dozen dressers who
act as body servants of the leading actors
in his company and a reregular employees
of the house, like ifas men, cleaners ami
scene shifters. The American actor,
however, dresses himself or else hires a
man to assist him. When he does hire a
man, it is usually a fellow player who is
"doing" small parts and is glad of the
chance to increase his flO wages by fi
from the leading or heavy man or first
The dresser has not only to assist in
changing his master's costume, a jer
formance requiring great expedition, but
makes repairs, folds and puts away tho
clothing, packs and unpacks tho trunks
and sees that the dressing table is sup
plied with paints, wigs, combs and other
needful articles. In the European thea
ters the dresser seldom or never nets,
though he is often an actor who has lieen
forced off from the Mago by illness,
lameness or loss of voice. Ho is gen
erally prompt, qniet, a little obsequious
and hopeful of tips at tho end of a run
or of a season. New York Sun.

Detroit has a bachelor of the coripul

times that lately he has been almost im

settled a week ago iu a rather round
about way. They had been talking on
woman in general.
"So you think," he wild, "that woman
is prone to jump at a conclusion?"
"I certainly do," she responded ear
nestly. "And you are like all the others?"

A great thought came to him then.

Unliving Hint l nrly Art.
It may create some surprise that we
regard the dance as the earliest form of
irt, or even that W"j allow it anyplace
iniong the fine arts. To many it will
teem a kind of sacrilege to combine in
the same category, however broad, such
Extremes as a dancing savage and a
painting of tho last judgment, and if
the connection must be made some
would choose to maktt it along other
lines than those of art. But. in truth,
tho dance supplies us with the key, so to
