THE CAIPTOL GUIDES.
Tliono Who Show * the Visitors
Through tho Great IIalI of
Tho guides at the capitol , says The
Washington HatcJict , arc reaping a
golden harvest from the bridal boom
that is now in full bloom. The excel-
examplc set by tho chief executive
ng its good effects throughout
thc'country , and all the charmed couples
focus on Washington.
The guides say tho bridal parties are
their best customers , and frequently
drop a crisp $5 note into their hands af
ter being shown the sights. This class
of visitors is the-dclight of the cicerones
for another reason they get tired
much sooner than other travelers and
want to go back to their hotels and
their honeymoon. Occasionally a couple
from the rural retreats stray in , hold
ing hands and swapping bites from the
same apple. They don't want an'body
to show them about and only want to
say they have been to congress. Often
times these green couples arc caught
kissing as they slowly seek the dome
by theviudiiig stairways.
Speaking of the guides they are a
polite set of fellows , and make then-
money by hard work. Some days they
strike it rich , but other days they do
not take in enough to pay for bread
and butter. They leave their fee gen
erally to the generosity of the visitor ,
and usually get a pretty fair compen
sation for thair long tramps and sterco-
t3Tpcd descriptive speeches things they
have said a thousand times. When they
get a good big party who know what
the proper thing is they make it pay
pretty well ; but sometimes they will
spend three or four hours showing sev
eral persons around , and then be hand
ed 50 cents , or , perchance , a Bland
These are the dark spots in their
tread-mill lives. Some people have an
idea that these men are furnished by
the government pro bono publico be
cause they wear a little metal badge
bearing the legend "Capitol Guide , "
and kick at the mention of a fee.
Formerly there were only six guides ,
but the number has been doubled , Jack
ing one , by the pressure for places.
After all they have not as fat places at
one might imagine. Their receipts
will run from 850 to § 75 a month.
Sixty dollars would be a fair average.
Their hours are from 9 in the morning
until 4:30 in the afternoon. Business
does'not begin as a rule before 10 and
is over by 8. The reception days as
the white house knock a big hole in
the receipts. It takes about an hour
and a half to see the building thor
Then tho distinguished men in both
houses of congress must be pointed out
and their peculiarities narrated. The
guides siy tliat Gibsonof Maryland.and
Toole , the delegate from Montana , are
considered the handsomest men in the
house of representatives by a majority
of visitors. Ilandali , Reed , and Car
lisle are asked for as soon as the visitor
gets into the gallery. Gen. Logan is
the first asked for in the senate , but is
nearly always recognized from his pic
tures if he happens to be within sight.
Butler , Dolpli , and Mitchell are set
down as the best looking senators by
the visiting sovereigns.
Englishmen are the best customers.
They come in a running walk in a great
hurry , and "doing ot America in a
fortnight , don't you know , " and eager
ly inquire for a guide as soon as they
cross the thresholds. They want only
the principal points , and pay well and
rush outThey arc usually astounded
at the magnitude of the capitol build
ing , and speak of the country as a
"giant" and of Washington as the
most beautiful .and wonderful city in
the world. The foreigners , however ,
often criticise the paintings and statues
The guides have queer experiences
with all sorts of people. On one occa
sion three well dressed , cosmopolitan-
looking Xew Yorkers took a guide for
three hours. At the close of their
rounds each man went deep down into
his pocket , and , lishing up a nickel ,
handed it to the amazed cicerone in the
most matter-of-fact waand without a
trace of fun in their faces. 'The aston
ished guide looked , at the three coins a
second and said :
" Gentlemen , I always treat when I
am paid this liberally. Let's go
The trio readily accepted the invita
tion , and followed their friend to the
restaurant. When they got through
with 50 cents1 worth of refreshments
each of the three handed over a dollar ,
and the laugh came in.
An Irishman came in one day and
was escorted to the "echo block" in
statuary hall. He said it was wonder
ful , but they had one at the lakes of
Killaruey that could beat it. "Why , "
said he , "when you say * How do you
do ? ' over that stone in the ould coun
try it answers 'Pretty well , I thank
you. ' " That finished the guide up in
one roiu-fl. One man wanted to know
who was president before Washington.
The visitors are always interested in
the images of Ben Butler , Senator Ed
munds , the monk's face , the "sleeping
beautv , " etc. , traced in the "pudding
stone * ' or Potomac marble pillows in
statuary hall. They stand in awe be
fore the sarcophagus chiseled for Wash-
in ton's body , and open their mouths at
the intricacies of the ventilating ap
paratus , which is only rivaled by the
"chin music1' of the guide.
Bridal couples always want to go to
the dome , and the groom invariably
gives his arm to his adorable. "Old
married folks" go it alone.
The guides show about ten thousand
persons through annually. They lose
'a great deal of money by visitors hav
ing acquaintances and relatives in the
capital , who are brought into service.
Members of congress often employ the
guides to take their constituency over
the tracks , as they have not the time ,
and cheerfully pay rather than be
troubled with the tiresome task.
The guides are appointed by the ser-
geant-at-arms of congress and the
architect of the capital , and in the same
manner as the crpitol police.

A Yankee and a Squatter.
A religious-looking traveler stopped
near the roadside and began to talk to
an Arkansaw man who was engaged in
building a sort of house.
"What arc you doing my friend ? "
Buildin' a church. "
"You are not building it alone , are
you ? "
"Do you see anybody he'pin' me ? "
"I mean , aro you the only man en
gaged in the good work ? ' '
"An' I axed you ef vou seed anybody
"Oh , pshaw ! man "
"That's what I say , "
"Have you done all this work ? "
"No , every man in tho neighborhood
takes a turn at it
"Aren't you afraid that pole will fall
"No , it won't fall up thar. Ef it
falls , it'll fall down here. Never seed
nothin' fall up. "
"What will this church be when it's
done ? "
"It'll be finished. "
"Of course. I mean what sort of a
church ? "
"You certainly understand me.
What denomination ? "
"Methodist , Baptist and Democrat.7'
"You seem to mix religion with your
"No , we mix politics with oar relij-
"Yon arc doing pretty good work ,
but it does seem to me that the pole is
going to fall. "
"Your judgment may be better than
mine , but I think the pole is insecure.
Have you any school houses in this
community ? "
"No , I haven't"
"I mean aro there any school houses
here ? "
"Yas , thar's one , but old Nat Levier
whupped the teacher , turned him out
an' hung up his terbacker in the
"Well , I declare. "
"So do L"
"Say ? "
"You'd better fix that pole. "
"I ain't got nothin' to do with it. "
"It's going to fall , or your judgment
is better than mine. "
"Whar you from ? "
' 'Massachusetts. "
"An' thought you'd come down to
civilization , eh ? "
"Nothought I'd come down and
teach you fellows something. Why
didn't you turn the other side of that
log out ? "
" Because we turned it in. "
' Well , I want to know why you
make the roof so flat ? "
"So the chillun can climb up on it
an' go to sleep durin' preachmV
"Well I declare. "
"That's whut I say. "
Say ? "
"I ain't satisfied about that pole.
Just at that instant the pole fell and
cracked the Yankee on the head.
When he got up while his face was
lighted by a mirthless and painful grin ,
the squater said :
"Shake , podner , your judgment was
better mine. " Arkansaw Traveler.
An Overworked Pastor.
A man arrived in a Dakota town on
the Missouri river in an early day and
soon found an old friend who had come
out as a Methodist minister.
Do you find the labors hard ? " he
asked of the reverend gentleman.
"Yes , quite so , "
"You look over-worked. "
"I am. "
"I suppose in a new country whero
churches are very scattering you find it
much harder to keep up the work. "
"Y-c-e-e-s , I suppose I do. "
"You certainly try to do too much.
You should not over-work A ourself this
way. Why don't you apply for another
ma'n on your charge ? "
"Well , you see the church work isn't
so heavy after all and I suppose that
could hardly be said to be wearing me
out. The fact is the boys noticed I had
some leisure time and they put me in

MR GLADSTONE'S VOICE.

Mr. Gladstone rose , and nobody who lias not
been In the house on a great occasion can
know exactly what even old spectators feel
then.A different spirit seems tO come over
everything a different atmosphere seems to
be upon the house , something like the effect
caused by the raising of the ca'uzc curtain be
fore a transformation scene. AU Is there as 11
was , but different At midnight the members'
lobby was crowded with eager and auzious
groups , but the two words , "Gladstone's up , '
caused them to stampede into the house like a
flock of sheep before a watchdog not to go in
leisurely , and with dignity , but literally to
turn and run helter-skelter , all alike , old par
liamentary hands and young il. P.'s to whom
the house seems yet more like a new school
The prime minister was very pale almost as
white as the flower in his buttonhole and
there was an added solemnity in his manner
belittmg the occasion. Best of all , however ,
he was in splendid voice. It rang as clear as
in years gone by , and what a voice it is ! To
begin with , it is of extraordinary compass ,
from the light high bantering note in which
he twitted the fories with endeavoring ' 'to
adorn the laugh to decorate it with an
idea , " down to the deep , resonantj intention
ally hoarse bass to which it sank as he spoke
of the "profound and bitter condemnation"
with which English action toward Ireland was
universally received. Then the fluxibilitv ol
it , tool From top note to bottom Mr. Glad
stone passes as lightly and smoothly and casil )
as a bird's carol. ' But the quality of it how
can one describe that ? It is impossible to 0:0
so without seeming to fall into absurd hyper
bole. There is something eo winning , so
"magnetic , " in Mr. Gladstone's voice , as it
was ouce more , and as we can hardly venture
to hope that it will be again , that it is neces
sary to seek for a simile. A cathedral bell
sounding far away over a rfer , a waterfall
heard a long way off in the stillness of night ,
the sea rolling slowly in over a pebbly beach , t
summer wind blowing over a hilltop of pines
In each of these there is a strangeindescrib
able quality which sometimes makes one's eyes
fill and one's throat contract for mere physical
sympathy , and in Mr. Gladstone's voice , "when
he will , there is the same note. The admir
able construction of his speeeh , how it began
by a few personalities and references to his
immediate predecessors in debate , how it
passed gradually to elaborate historical argu-
mratj how it turned to denunciation of the
rival policy , how there came into it the touch
of national poetry , and the picture of Erin
with the cup at her lips picture finished with
a touch of Virgil how it concluded with a
solemn appeal for a "blessed oblivion of the
past , " and "happiness , prosperity , and peace"
for the years that are to come these , and the
utter absence of any personal taint , any com
plaint any reference to the speaker's own per
son , all can see who will read it But thai
voice is only an inalienable memory.
The Pope's Interest in America.
Leo XTTI. feels an extraordinary interest in
all that relates to the United States , writes a
Rome correspondent of Th Jfew York Suti.
This was shown in his careful elaboration of
the scheme or Fr ° Sramme e * matters to be
discussed and settled in the plenary council of
Baltimore in November , 1884. Every item bad
been carefully weighed by him at Rome , in
consultation with the American nrchbighops ,
in the preceding autumn. He gave them
a full-length portrait of himself to be placed
in the hall where they were to deliberate , so
that be might , in a manner , preside in persoc
over their every proceeding. Indeed , the
council , with its acts and decrees , were to the
venerable pontiff a subject of especial delight
and personal care. This was in a very partic
ular manner the case with the creation of the
new Catholic university at Washington , whose
progress he watches with a keeu interest ,
which extends itself to every detail.
Of scarcely less interest to him is the Amer-
can college here , which President Arthur's
timely interference saved from the rapaci s
maw of the Italian governmen. If Leo XIII.
were still in possession of his temporal do
main there is no doubt but he would gener
ously second the zealous labors of the present
rector , Dr. O'Conuell , to make the American
college in Rome the worthy counterpart of the
great National university at Washington. As
it is. he can only see to it carefully that this
seminary of the American priesthood is in
every way a nursery of priestly virtue aad
