I remember , years ngo , when exposed to all
kinds of weather , 1 used to get cold very often.
I would have chilly sensations , with n little
fever nt the snmo time , u burning or prickling
fionsntlon In my nose , nnd n feeling of drynesH
or heat , which would last n fo\v hours , when n
watery dKclmrgo would bet In. Tins would last
perhaps from three days to a week , when 1
would feel ns well ns over , but soon I would
have nnother spell , nnd as time went on I got so

discharge chanced nnd bccnmo colored nnd
thicker , nnd harder to remove ; It hecunie more
dlltlcult for mo to breutho through my nose ,
which would stop up whenever there was a
change to damp weather ; then then mining from
my nosobernmo less , but I noticed there was
morotionblo In my throat , nnd 1 hadtolmuk

comrortnblu nnd bothered mo n grent deal.
Didn't this hnvo n tendency to injure your gen
eral health ? O , yes ; my stomach got very weak.
1 wnab careful , though , and tried to diet
myself. My stomach distressed mo con
siderably , nnd I was uneasy and miserable.
I had n burning sensation under my breast bouo
nnd my stomach felt distended , or rather fi'lt ns
Ittherowns something theia that didn't belong

NnwYomc , April 11. [ Correspondence of
ho IJcn. ] The extent to which the posses
sion of wealth forms a basis for the estimate
o bo put upon people , in the eyes of the
vorld , Is apparent everywhere. Hut in New
YorkpartlcularlyIs this standard set up and
althfully adhered to , The announcement
ms been made from nn authority above ap
ical , that in this great metropolis there nro
only about four hundred people in "fashion
able society. " To go outside of this social
number ono strikes people "who nro cither
not at ease In n ball-room or else make other
icoplo notatcasc. ; " Yet there are many most
cultivated and highly respectable , even dis
tinguished Ucyond the "fashionable" limit
are found professional men , doctors , lawyers ,
editors , artists and the hko. This careful
llvlslon of "tho like" from the sacred circle
irevallcd In England , ns Thackeray showed
n his old Osborne , who growled because his
fashionable daughter did not invite him to
ncct the swells , but only when she had
artists and literary people. Money will not
admit into this exclusive society "a fortune
of a million being only respectable poverty. "
If 400 persons avow themselves to be the
cream and flower of the earth , and the world
so accepts them , then the world should not
worry over its isolation. Perhaps , if the
pretenses to extreme fashionable supremacy
were carefully sifted , it would be found that
the inherent icqnireinont is not what is above
specified , but one more effective n amcly ,
check I Take any supreme , nose-uplifted ,
censorious , sublimely celestial and beautiful
set In any city , which calls itself the fash
ionable circle , it will bo found to be com

Another instance which shows the in
fluence of wealth is the fact that the Man
hattan railway company places its best cars
on the Sixth avenue line , its next best on the
Third avenue nnd its oldest and worst on the
Second and Ninth avenue lines. Consider
ing that the faro is the same in all cases ,
why this partiality } Tlio cars nro distributed ,
it will bo noted , with reference to the worldly
possessions of the travelers on the respec
tive lines. The Sixth avenue passengers
average the highest in respect to the pocketbook -
book , and hence got the best treatment. . It
Is but an illustration of the general truth
that the rich man gets more for the same
amount of money than the poor man does.
TIIII'Axos OP rovr.imr.
In their miserable 10x12 foot room on the
top floor of the small , tumble-down frame
house. No. 57 Crosby street , Ilnnz Stackrica
and his young wife , Fanny , bought relief
from the pangs of poverty by taking poison ,
and died within an hour of cacli other at
St. A'ineent's hospital , just ns day was break
iftTlioy were from Poland , nnd wcro unable
to speak a word of English and but little
German. They came to live with their little
cight-months-old boy in the Crosby
street house about ono month uco.
They had given tlio name of Golstein to W.
J. Jarvis , the agent of the building , when
they hired the little attic room with ono
window looking towards the east. The only
one to whom they ever spoke was Mrs Chris
tina Dccring , who lived on the same floor
with them. To her Mrs. Stackrica told , in
half intelligible German , how miserably poor
they were and how her was vainly
Becking for work at his trade as tailor.
Stackrica left homo as usual early Friday
morning , and during the day his wife was
heard weeping. When ho returned at night
thcro was no talking or laughing in their
room , and the lamp was turned low , so as to
save the oil , which was nearly exhausted.
The month' * rent , $5 , had to be paid the fol
lowing day , nnd Mrs. Dcering supposed n
crisis had been reached In tlio life of her
neighbors , and so told her husband. About
midnight blio was aroused by ashullling noise
in the hallway , and going to the d9or with u
lamp in her hand found Staekrica on the
landing staggering about , with a wild look in
his eyes. She supposed ho had been drink
ing , and closed the door. Ho was then
heard to reel about the hallway , moaniug ,
mid finally to stagger Into his own apart
ment and slam tlio door. About an hour af
terwards Mrs. Dccring was again awakened
by a noise in the hallway , which was fol
lowed by a faint tap on her door. She again
got up , and lighting the lamp opened the
door nnd peered into the darkness. She saw
nothing at first but a taint light coming from
the open door of her neighbor's room , but
upon turning to the right a horrible bight
met her yaw. Stackricn was Icanin g against
the wall , his eyes glaring wildly and- perspir
ation standing In beads upon his .forehead ,
His face , which before had been wnito , was
now deep purple. His whole frame bhooli
ami he gasped in German ;
" \Vc have taken poison my wife and I , "
nnd then fell headlong to the floor. Mrs ,
Deering aroused her husband and then ran
into the apartment of the Stackrlcas. She
fqund the young wife upon a sofa-bed , the
baby In her arms , her face ashen-pale nnu
froth upon her lips. She recognized Mrs ,
Dccring and said In u faint voice :
"Wo are dying. Go for the police. "
Mrs. Dcerlng dressed herself and wonl
with her husband to the Mulberry street
police station , where Sergeant ilcrbeit or
dered an ambulance and then started for the
house. Stackrica was found unconscious
whcro ho had fallen on the landing , nnd hi. '
wife was dying. The officer shook her nut
In answer to his Inquiries she said no poisoi
had been given to the baby. She then became
came unconscious. The baby was crying
upon the floor. When the ambulance ar
rived the unconscious husband and wife were
put Into it and taken to St. Vincent's hos
pitul. They never regained consciousness
and the husband died about u o'clock in th (
morning and his wife an hour later.
The baby was taken chnrgo of by Matron
Webb at police headquarters and was wnshci
and fed and given new clothes in place o ]
the old brown dress In which it was wrapped
Afterwards It was taken charge of by Super

ho didn't do the big fellow's clmnccs ony

level or not nt nil. Ho xvouldn't even fall on
Mitchell when he had n dozen opportunities. "
"In the third round , " said Phillips ,
"Mitchell wns partly knocked out. At the
expiration of thirty seconds wo called time ,
but he wasn't nble to get up. Hnldock hustled

Twelve people proved that t'icy hail the

The past week has been ono to raise the
hopes of trainers of race horses everywhere ,
for work on the tracks was possble , and the
men who have to get their horses ready for
the summer campaign wcro not slow In tak
ing advantage of it. From now on the homo
will have plenty of work to do , and vigorous
work it will be , too. In order to get animals
ready for the Hrooklyn mooting , which be

sarily bad for the animals , and horses breakIng -
Ing down under the strain will , In all proba
bility , bo numerous. So backward has been
the season that few , If any animals , will bo
sent from hero to the meetings nt Washing
ton nnd UaHlmore , and southern and west
ern trained horses will have tlio prizes there
to themselves. Jerome park's meeting1 will
probably bo the llrst which will show any
thing llko the true form of ilycrs who have
wintered in this vicinity , though some of the
"cracks" may bo ready by the time the
Brooklyn meeting begins.
Exhibition of Art.
The exhibitions of the Society of American
iVrtists are the most thoroughly artistic ones
of native work held In this dountry.
Unquestionably the finest pleco of concep
tion and painting in the exhibition and by
painting I do not moan the results of purely
technical skill is that lovely work , ' 'An
Angel , " by Abbott II. Tlmyer. This canvas
the hanging committee which has in the
main done its work well has given a place
of honor. The face of the young girl is very
sweet , though the typo is not very refined ,
per so , and la beautifully painted.
Among the painters of tlio Ideal perhaps
Kcnyon Cox should bo next mentioned. lie
is exceedingly well represented by two ideal
words , each of which has a very realistic
savor , and by one example of tlio real , pure
and simple. His largest canvas is a vigorous
picture of the combat between "Jacob and
the Angel , " the exertions of the former nnd
the little effort put forth by the latter being
admirably contrasted. Of especial charm , in
color , drawing nnd modelling , is Mr. Cox's
nude woman with long red hair , standing in
a landscape , which ho calls "Indian Sum
mer. " She is built like most of Air. Cox's
women , In rather peculiar fashion , with a
very heavy body , enormous hips and very
small tinkles.
A delightful little nude , with warm , palpi
tating llesh , is shown by Herbert Denman.
A sweet young girl is seated on n marble ter
race in front of nn altar , and with purple
masses of rhododendrons at her back , mak
ing an "Offering to Aphrodite. "
Still another nude is offered by Will H.
Low. It is his charming little picture of n
pretty young creature with very narrow hips
nnd very thin legs , standing " 'Neath Apple
Houghs. " Mr. Low's females are as apt to
bo ns epicene in general contours ns Mr.
Cox's are the reverse. Tlio former's second
canvass is n largo and artistic panel , delight
ful in color and composition , for u stained
glass window , of the "Madonna Delia Prat
ellina. " The face of the Holy Mother is
lovely , but the figure of the sleeping child
is rather heavy.
The spring exhibition of the National
Academy of Design for 1SSS is the best dis
play of its size of American art that has yet
been made.
Ono of the strongest figures paintings in
the exhibition is Winslow Homer's "Klght
Hells" two fishermen talcing an observation
during n temporary outbreak of sunshine on
n stormy day. H is n well composed , vigor
ously painted canvas , and although the sky
is n little heavy , the water in the cold light
Is painted in n masterly manner. The effect
of the light , especially on the men's sou'-
westcrs and their figures , is remarkable for
strength nnd truth. On the whole , it is n
masterpiece. Gilbert Gaul has ono of his
striking war scenes on his important canvas ,
" Earthwork. " The is
"Charging an scene at
twilight , and the effect of this with that of
the llro from the guns is extremely fine.
Tlio composition and the arrangement of tlio
figures in intense action , the majority of
them is very strong.
"Tho Viking's Daughter" of F. S. Church
Is n dellcionsly poetic and quaint canvas. A
fiock of doves wldsper in the lovely girl's ear
us she walks along the csamls clad In dia
phanous draperies. Beautiful is W. II.
Low's little work showing n nude young
woman kneeling "lly the Fountain. " As
much cannot bo said for Wyatt Eaton's
lilum ) ) , untorcstlng and partly undo "La Cl-
gale , " who sits at the foot of a tree holding a
Htringcd instrument of mandolin bhapo. The
nude part of tlio body has , however , line
qualities ,
Georgci W. Maynnrd In his "Intruders , " n
work of Importance , dhows two birds of the
fiamlngo order in nn open air marbln bath ,
with thrua women muloimd parly so. There
nro fine points about this work , but it is la
mentably deficient in the paining of the quali
ties of mablo and llesh , Theru is little air
nnd less light. Again , the pose of oiiiTof the
women is ugly.
John T. Sargent's portrait of n handsome
lady in evening dress is very artistic , and
the attractive , expressive face is superbly
painted , but the llcsli of the arm is unreal In
color , while it and tlmt [ of Iho neck hardly
seem to belong to the same person as the face.
It is possible , us an nrtist nptly suggested ,
that It was painted in the summer time when
the face was tanned slightly , sit could not
have been at the seashore , unless It was nl
Har Harbor , or the young lady is no bather ,
The bodice of the dress is somewhat llatiy
painted and gives little suggestion of a lioily
under it. Air. Sargent's success In a Vono
tun street and in a Venetian interior art
of Dollar *
are spent every year by the people of this
stoto for worthless medicines for the cure ol
throat and lung diseases , when wo know thai
if they would only invest n in SANTA Aim- :

this pleasant remedy find relief. It is rcc

of the HEC.I Wliilo tlio conimlttoo on the
District of Columbia oirbotli sides of the
capital arc working over the production of a
ilgh liccnso bill for application to the city of
Washington , Iho restaurants of both houses
continue to do a. fairly profltnblo business in
'coltl tea" and various other beverages of
, lko character. However much the prohlbl-
.ion sentiment may nlToct congressmen In
llielr various district ! ) . It seems to lese the
grip on most of them when they are away
from the eyes of their jealous and watchful
constituents. It would be far from the truth
to say that a pi-cat number of members of
cither the house or senate are habitual users
of alcoholic stlmulcnts to excess , but a largo
liroportlon do not hesitate to "kiss the cup tel
l > 93 it by , " and to occasionally ciook the
elbow with a vlsitinp statesman or Intimate
friend. Social customs require the use of
wine at formal dinners , and the senators
anil representatives who turn their
glasses down when the corks begrin to fly are
not numerous enough to attract attention
or to ciuiso astonishment. It is painful to
innko this statement from the midst of a dis
trict which has been bombarded for three
months past with petitions from every sec
tion of the union praying that it ml ht bo
promptly placed under the ban of prohibition
but such 14 the fact , and there is no use de
nying it. A reporter for a local paper , who
spends n largo portion of his time in the sen
ate restaurant , has collected a number of
statistics as to what these statesmen imbibe ,
from which I make a fexv extracts.
The most constant attendant at the "cold
tea" counter is Senator Hlddloborgor. His
favorite throat tickler Is Bourbon whisky ,
which ho occasionally varies with n pint bottle

ties. Hiddlcbcrgcr is a steady drinker
and is rarely free from the Inllunco of
ardent spirits. Ho has made many exhibi
tions of himself on the floor of the senate
while in an intoxicated condition , and isn
terror to the presiding olllccrs. When Hid-
dleborgcr is "drunk and disorderly" it is al
most impossible for business to proceed. Ho
interrupts debates , makes stump speeches ,
offers irrelavent motions and is ready to light
any proposition from any side. At times it Is
practically useless to attempt to quiet him ,
and on several occasions the senate has gone
Into executive session and closed the doors
simply to ring the curtain down on one of
Uiddleberger's exhibitions. During the last
congress it was in contemplation to pass a
motion expelling him from the senate. Kid-
dlchcrgcr , who w nothing if not shrewd , got
wind of it mid promptly ftquclcheil the move
by threatening to rise in his seat and amend
the motion , if made , by'includlng the name
of Senator Edmunds.
Edmunds holds frequent communion in his
committee room , where thp side board is
never dry. At his Inilcli hb usually treats
himself to a small bottle of chump.ignc. It in
a standing remark thattho'nmount ' of fluid
which Senator Edmunds has imbibed can
always be ascertained by watching the
movements of his hand when ho takes his
seat in the senate. If , It is passed rapidly
over his nose three or four times it may beset
set down as certain that the senator has
taken from live to six ' drinks. If ,
in addition to this it slides over his
forehead the number has been increased.

the country recently by advocating a prohi

a high liver from constant practice. At a re

on 1C street seven different kinds of wines
and liquors were on tap , and the champagne
flowed in streams deep enough tolloat the entire -
tire assemblage. "I thought you were a pro
hibitionist , senator , " Joked a friend. "So I
am , " responded the Jolly senator , "hut lhavo

Senator Hoar , whoso benevolent fnco and

a professional philanthropist and lecturing

Arkansas' Queer Industry One Crop

St. Louis Special : There , is n , town in
Arkansas cnllotl Atlanta , at least thcro
is a postoflice by that name , and some
houses arc scattered iiromiscuously
through the miry vicinity. Atlanta
nestles snugly in the midst of a chawn-
ing swamp , whcro Miakcs and toads are
wont to congregate , anil whore such a
tiling as soil bears the same relation to
reality that an algebraic equation
bears to a known quantity. The mhabi-
tantbdoubt not but what thorp is so il
under Atlanta , but the trouble iwto got
beneath the superficial stratum of
swamp and reach tlio great depth at
which it is Mipnosert soil mightbo
found. The Arkansas ngent of the
Early Mercantile company was iibkctl to
send in a report to Atlanta. Ho has
just sent it and in it lie brings to light a
new industry , Tlio swamp being nn-
suited to the growing of grain , tlio in
habitants have suited themselves to the
circumstances , nnd now grow bullfrogs
for the market. They have
excellent seed and tlio growths
htvvo been ' magnificent until
Inst ycnr when the whole crop hopiKJtl
nwny before il wns ripe. This wns very
discouraging , but wlicn the time cnmo
nnothcr crop wns put in , mul nt lost re
ports it was doing well , though there
nro indications thnt the precedent sot
by the Inst crop may bo followed this
year , ns several of the moro nmluro
frogs hnvo begun peregrinating nbout

Against ad

advised "to
keep a stiff up

m u H t a c h o
grows , such
advice strictly
followed would
lead to a dis
play of bris
tles. It is
much more im
port tv n t to

burdens fall on the physii man. Na

stress comes she provides supports.
It is the fault of the individual who ,
through negligence , exposure or impru
dence , brings an n collapse of these sup
ports. Every ono knows how the stitch
in the back comes , but everyone doesn't
know the promptest and surest way to
catch it up and cure it permanently.
The experiments of these who know llio
secret nro worth recording. Mr. Frank
Monroe , Francisvillo , 111. , January 30 ,
Iti87 , says : "Three years ngo had rheu
matism in the back ( lumbago ) so bad I
could not dross myself. Ono bottle of
St. Jacobs Oil cured mo , and I have
not felt it since. " Mr. .1 , W. Moira , 28
Hock fatreot , Lowell , Mass. , February ,
J8S7 , writes : "Three years ago was
taken with pains in back , hips nnd legs ;
could not turn in bed except by help of
headboard ; applied St. Jacobs Oil bovor-
al times to my back. In three davs t
was sound and limber. Have not had
return binco , though I had been subject
to bpells for many years. " Mr. Jacob
Mueller , Maysville , Wis. , February ,
1887 , writes : "In ' 81 was troubled with
an awful backache , and sulTored some
timo. St. Jacobs Oil cured mo perman
ently ; no return. " Mr. E. W. Elliott ,
Ludinglon , Mich. , February 8 , 1887 ,
btates : "My wife had not fetoopcd in
ton years to button her bhoe ; she suf
fered intensely with lame back. She
tried St. Jacobs Oil ; four bottles cured
her , and she had had no trouble in six or
seven years. " Mr. Horace 12. Hopkins ,
New Albany , Indiana , writes Juno 10 ,
1SS7 : "SulTored two years ago with acute
pains in the back , also a slight touch of
pleurisy. In ono hour obtained great
relief from St. Sacobs Oil ; three appli
cations cured mo. In the morning pains
were gone , and have had no recurrence
o ! it since. " May 17 , 18S7 , Mr. A. A.
Cunningham , Porryopolis , Pa. , writes :
"My wife was sorely afllicted with lame
back ; buffered several years. She used
innumerable liniments and plasters
without relief ; used St. Jacobs Oil , and
she was cured by it , and would not keep
house without it. " The maxim ought
to bo , keep a straight , strong back , and
the rest of the anatomy will be strong
