Expert Opinion The Canadian Government recently sent an appraiser to the principal bicycle factories in this country, to determine the exact value of various makes for import into Canada. After an exhaustive investigation, his report to his Government rated Columbia Bicycles T/s per cent, higher t£ao any other make and they <# pay duty accordingly, This but confirms the popular verdict.

Tb» milieu of tho Lnncl Arc Bettor Ilep- re»«ntod la th« Nntlonal Capital Than the Ateu—Somo AmuH- tag StOTlen. [Special Wachlnsrton Letter.] The system of writing for newspapers nt space rates is u vicious one. It induces writers to pad their work at tho expense ol veracity and strict reliability. It is particularly noticeable that the. Washington correspondents of papers conducted upon tho space rato plan are habitually giving lx> the people of this country erroneous impressions concerning "the national capital. For example, in n metropolitan newspaper the following item was printed under a Washington date line: "One of the most prominent society dames of Washington went to tho grand "USE VOL-R LITTLE feme F<SR' OYSTEKS." opera, recently. She had simply an admission ticket for which she had paid two dollars. But sec-ins 1 a vacant scat she proceeded to occupy it. When the man who had bought it c^mo along, presented his check, and tlio usher politely asked her to vacate, s>hu bluntly refused. Tbe head-usher was summoned, nnd he asked the lady to move. 'I will not,' she said, 'and 1 dare you to touch me. 1 A policeman was appealed to, nnd he discreetly declined 1o interfere. The result was that the grand dame held her ground nnd the young man who had paid six dollars for his seat stood through the performance." That story is absolutely false. It is possible that some flashily-dressed woman may have taken a seat at tho grand opera which did not belong to her, but it is not true that she was "one cf tho most prominent society dames of Washing-ton." Stories of that character are written by the yard with little or no foundation beyond the vivid and diseased imagination of space rate writers. To say that one of tbe society leaders of Washington was so ill-bred ns to conduct herself in that manner in the Grand opera house is to state as n fact something which is actually impossible. If snuh a woman should by any artifice secure admission into Washington society she would soon lose caste by her ill-breeding nnd could never become one ot the "prominent society dames of Washington." Of course there ore a groat many ill- bi-ed people in this city as there are in all cities, but they are not leaders in society, nor can they ever be referred ',o as "prominent dames." It is such reckless journalism as this which conveys to the people erroneous impressions concerning their national capital; Lind the readers of country papers glean from such writings the idea that. Washington is a sink ot sin and iniquity. Once upon a time a lovely western woman by an accident of political fortune wns'draprgcd from her quiet little thrce-course-diiiTiftr village and brought uto the snares of fashionable Washington. She thus relates some of her experiences. "[ ate my strawberries with a spoon jnd left the little jabber lying alongside of my plate." '"Horrible! What happened? .• "Oh, nothing; the people were well ired; but I discovered my mistake when 1 saw' my husband flourishing the fiendish instrument and regarding me with a mournful smile. 'Hot and cold chills played hide and o,.cJ< throughout my entire system, a mist rose tip between me and the correct and elegant hostess, my new dinner dress was a failure, my partner was i block of ice. and the strawberries were Dead soa fruit. "I got through my official calling very well," she continued, "as I had only to teep a correct list of addresses, put on my best clothes, hire a carriage and start out. Of course the calls were a jore, nnd nt times embarrassing, but when I concluded that the women who received were as much bored as I was. felt ns competent fo discuss the veatucr, to find fault with the cold, or heat, or rain, whichever it happened to be, as the wife of n cabinet officer. Then I got through receptions very well; we never went early, so I could ust look around and do as. the other women did. -It was th? first dinner parties, however, that pretty nearly ruined roe in my own estimation." 'Did you never see anyone else make mistakes?" "Oil, yes, indeed; and now that I'm .in old-timer and give entertainments my self, T often sit and feel s'orry for ?ome )thcr little rival soul who uses a large wife when a butter-spreader is before her. and cats' her oysters' with u dinner ork,"aud is finally run into a corner by laving to cat-peas with-an oyster fork, lowever, I am not quite sosolititousof ,ho improvement of my guests ns to mitate one of our American money queens, who was dining one of our American war heroes. "The general, who was -none other than William T. Sherman, it is said, in the distraction of iv red-lipped bright- eyed, kissnble partner, forgot .himself, and mechanically jabbed a dinner fork- nto a large juicy oyster. The hostess saw the blunder, and. full of hospitable intent, but not groutKlecMn '£he tenet* of society, electrified the company by the high-pitched exclamation: , 'Oh, general, use your little fork for oysters.' It ia needless to say that the general took the hint, while he. was now far rosier than the pretty girl ho had been so gallantly entertaining." When that little country girl first came to Washington with hcr'husbond nmT ate strawberries with a spoon instead of a little silver jabber, she could not have been a grand dame of society. Having been well bred in a country village she could not of course have acted with such impropriety ns the woman mentioned by tho space rato correspondent. Ilex own story is the interesting talc of one who has grown up into the social customs of a great city and learned much of the ways of society. Her story concerning the American money-queen, who was so reckless as to embarrass Gen. Sherman by her foolish exclamation, is aji illustration of what may occur in city society. The wife of tlifl American millionaire was giving a costly entertainment. Gen. Sherman and others of prominence attended the entertainment ont 'of respect for the husband and his standing 1 in the finan^ cial world. The woman was herself exceedingly ill-bred, lacking culture, but trying to he agreeable and entertaining'. She lacked that gentleness and consideration which can only come of long 1 experience nnd eureful training- as well as from good hcartodncss and gentlcncssof disposition. Suchawomon as that occupying- a high position in the financial end of the social world might have behaved in the Grand opera, house :.s the space rale correspondent has described a woman as having behaved, but such a character must not be classed ns ono of the most prominent society women in the national capital. It is not only unfair to tho people of this city that they should thus be misrepresented, but it .is unfair to the reading people of the country to give them such distorted ideas and pictures of the capital of their country. Out of respect to liis position, the newspaper writers of this country refrained from giving descriptions of the wife of a certain president of the United States not many years ago. She was'a good woman, and n.s kind-hearted as nny woman upon the face of the earth. She love<ilier husband and was devoted to'her family. She was, however, what society calls nn exceedingly common woma.B, having never been bred to the gentle ways of cultured society. The mistakes which she made in her conversations with ladies high i.u social rank were both numerous and ludicrous. They were repeated back and forth among the society men and women of A QUIET GAME. the day, and of course newt-paper men dud newspaper women iK'fird the stories', but it is creditable to the newspaper . staff of this city that nothing- was printed concerning the malaprop conversations of the first lady in tlii> land. But while newspaper writers mis- ^represent ladies by telling- incredible '"morios concerning them, if they would toll true stories concerning the men who ore en I led great, they would rendt-v good service to the people of the land. The majority of our senators are snobs. While they arc in the hojse of representatives, or tilling some position of prominence in their own states, (hey arc compelled to be of the people, for the people, and subordinate to the people. Whun • elected to the United States senate for a term of six yeu.rs. it. turns many a head. When the popular idol of liis state comes to Washington, -enters the senate, finds lackeys by the score bowing and scraping to him, he is inclined to imagine that he is apriiico of some realm, better and purer than his fellow citizens. If not a gentle man, hu is not a gentleman; and becomes boor- jsh nnd supercilious. It is all very well to write stories io. criticism of the country girls who come with their husbands into high station; but they usually conduct themselves with" more keen appreciation of their surroundings than tliei.r husbands do. They make I'ittle mistakes, of fours'-. But they arc gentlewomen, nil of them: and are creditable to themselves, their husbands, their families, and their friends at home; as well as to their sex throughout the country. • Whenever you read a story concerning ;t "leading 1 soflety lady in Washington" who Lias done or said something discreditable, don't you believe it.. The ladies of this country arc better represented in the national capita! than tin men, far bettor. It is the male sex which supports the barrooms, the' gambling dens, and ot.Jier question-'; n'ble places. The ladies make little, blunders when they first enter the higher social circles, but.they rapidly learn, and easily keep pace with veterans in social entertainment. ^ SMITH D, FHT.

EDISON. a glow worm, or our friend ol the summer evening, the lightning bug. The lightning buy of our clime and his much more brilliant congeners of the tropics represent the ideal light far which the electricians are struggling, for in these insects the energy that produces the light is not dissipated in heat, but h immediately transformed into light vibrations without hcutaud without any dynamic effects that are n.t all injurious to the inject or its surroundings. In the harmless glow of woody phosphorescence somewhat cf the same effects are also seeiv. Naturally, says the Philadelphia Press, thi; comparative inefficiency ot the light has been a thorn in the flesh of the electricians of this generation. Those of th» earlier age had other things to think of, for from 3S22, when Faraday's discoveries of another method of producing electricity made the dynamo possible, until 1ST;,, tbe arc lamp, the only electric light, of the time, was L'.ttle rrore than a laboratory curiosity, the utility of. which was questioned by the Ir.-irned numskulls, who arc the 'dov.b;ers ot every age. But after 1S75. when jfjrnsh discovered a •ay of making 1 the li.c;lit. commercially jrscticable. the odvanee of electric .ighting in tho United. Stales has been one of'the marvels of 1he ago and has •,a:'l at its bonk nnd call capitalists, in- .•pr.tors, professors. rr.oeha.i):es and a.n iiduslr'ni army.

OTJOt 1 in producing brighter light at less- expense, one can easily read the 'utlire of the new glow. Electric light- .:;<r is ripe for the change, since in all :b'eso 20 years since 'TO there has been vast improvement all along the '.line fuel, fii.i-na'ce, boiler, engine and •lynamo. but at the lamp tho energy was wasted in its transformation.
