In Kxnnipl« M»d« of » Troubl«j«onie Jfon- T liuyur. | One of those "shoppers" who seek .to ee rather than to buy, having kept a alesmiui of a Boston dry goods house Irairy for an hour in displaying the Iho'icest goods, at last said: "I'll tnke a Ikoin of silk." "Shall we send it to lour address, madam?"asked the polite Ilerk, us hv wrapped up tho purchase. I'Yoii may," said she. without a blush. End handed him her card. Tho silk _. nt by a, messenger-boy. In Lon•on, however, tli(j retail dealers are tot so polite, und they are not pleased Jo show their goods unless one bny.'i liberally. The London Millinery tells this story of making an example of a voman who would look at goods with- lut buying any: pompous lady, after teasing tho Jian of a millinery establishment ,v.jv,jdtho forbearance limit, ordered . spool of cotton to be sent to her louse. It was agreed that she should to raado an example of und ft warning oher kind. She was surprised, and her neighbors Dtcrcsted, soon after she arrived homo, i common dray, drawn by four horses, irocoeded slowly to her door. On the ray, with bare arms, were n number ,i stalwart laborers. They were liold- ng on vigorously to some object she rtmld not soe. I This neighbors stared. After a deal rf-whip-cnicking, the cart was backed Igainst tho curb. There, reposing almly, end up, in the center of tho art, was the spool of cotton she had jrdered. With the aid of a plunk it [vas finally rolled, barrel-fashion, to ho pavement. After a straggle it was placed on tho purchaser's door-step. The fact that ho purchaser cumo out a little later tnti kicked her property into the gut- «r detracted nothing from tho lesson. TOO CLOSE A "CUT.

A Philadelphia auctioneer says: "You would scarcely believe it, but there are men who will go withoxst the nucessi- j tics of life to gratify their craze for collecting rare books. I have in mind ttio case of a man who lives in a back street away uptown somewhere in mis- j erablc circumstances, but who has a | really fine library of rare books. When I have hud sales on I huve known him to come in looking like a tramp, with the toes out of his boots, soiled Jinen and a general air of serni-respeotable vagrancy.

Ho would hoard his money at the expense of his family'scorn fort, and when ho got enough together would go off and buy some rare book," CHINESE VIRTUOSOS. to Gentlemen Who UeToto Their Collecting CurloH. You must know that the Chinese is far more commonly virtuoso than we, And a Chinese collector is a real connoisseur. He has no idea of beauty— except to eye it suspiciously as probably of Japanese or other foreign origin; all he worships is age. And— mark this most curious trait— antiques of his own country only. What a conservatism to boast of this! The Chinese scholar and virtuoso has the pro'foundest admiration for his own country's ancient literature and art. He \villnotdoign to have anything foreign or new on his shelves. I think this is somewhat of a rebuke to us, hunting for relics of every country but our own. It puts tis on the stand of nouveaux riches. Don't think, says Temple Bar, that a Chinaman spends nothing on his col- f lection, lie will outbid the vulgarest millionaire in tho world for a genuine old bronze or porcelain. His collection I is not built up in a day "by wholesale commissions given to dealers. His is bought piece by piece as opportunity and finances allow. The collection made by a single man's lifetime is noth- : ing. You will seo pieces in his catalogue bought by father and grandfather, and remote ancestors. They ore heirlooms. They arc passed down from father to son. They are the mark of education and noble birth, because tho only nobility there is education and of- j ticiiil rank, and noble birth is-being tho j descendantsof ancestors who have held office and taken degrees. An heirloom , of a choice bit of porcelain proves cdu- ' cation and wealth in the purchaser. Does this not make you feel rather new with your two-penny fans and plates on the wall?

ILL1AM H.CUANE without mvicfi nourish of trumpet".;resented at thu r'Jih Avenue ther.ter, New York, rec«'iUy, a new comedy, entitled. "His Wife's Father." Anything- that an actor of Mr-Crane's ability Is pleased to do. Is worthy of attention, arid the audience which came to pass Judgment on the play and players was large, fashionable, and coldly critical. At the end of the first act the opinion prevailed that the comedian had become possessed of one of the beat plays presented this season. This opinion was strengthened during the progress of the second act, and when the curtain fell on the third act there was an unanimity of opinion that in the play that bright youne woman, Miss Martha Morton, had written a work that was destined to live not only through this generation, but through many generations to come. There was no question as to its longevity or Its success, and, in truth, there were no reasons why there should be. The morninj? aZter the production the newspapers stamped It as one ot the hits of the year. To those who have analyzed the com<<Jy Its sirens .points have become very apparent. In the first place, the play tells a good, strong, wholesome story that all can sec to their .-imusement and not a few to their advantage. It touches the heart, works upon the sen- slbilltips. and teaches a lesson that knocks iil'man/a door. The story outlined is extremely pimple and e.-isily followed. The principal character is Buchanan Billings, who Is in the Brocury business in Harlem, and wealthy. He has an only'child, Nell, and she is the idol of his life, "You can say that she Is the apple of my eye, that I live only for her, that anything In the world she wants she can have, and that I hope never to be separated from her as long as we both live." In these words he describes his affection for her. On her part she is not unmindful of his great love, and has always been a dutiful daughter. She devotes her life to her father, until sha falls in love with Prank Hamilton, the confidential man In his employ. Blllinjrs, who has never denied his daughter anything, consents to tho marriage, and In order to prove his affection for Nell and his confidence In Frank, gives him a full partnership In the business and becomes a. silent member of the firm of Billings & Hamilton. That done, he decides to devote the remainder of his life to his little girl's happiness, and' then falls Into a delusion, common enough among- parents, that their children must always belong to them, and etui have no future of which they do not form a part. From this point Billings becomes a lovingly, meddlesome father, whose kindly meant Interferences -with the personal affairs of his daughter, and her husband make him a nuisance. He is not like tho traditional mother-in-law In acerbity or fault-finding, however— he is far too good-natured to scold anybody, or to purposely raise a row about anything—but he is decidedly meddlesome, nevertheless. One.of the first things that he does is to insist up'in accompanying the young people on their honeymoon, and they ure compelled to plan an escape, which proves amusing. Upon their return he \decides upon their living In his house, and as he has nothing to c!o, begins to meddle In the young people's domestic affairs. His whole Idea is to make Nell happy, forgetting tl • '' "•« thut her happiness has passed ' t . . his hands and Into those of her husband. They never havp a moment nlone and they resent this. They rent a house and keep the Intelligence from the old man until the last minute. Before h'e realizes that they have gone 'the rooms are stripped of their furniture, and as he sits down on an old box, the only thing left, and looks around at the bare walls, he presents a picture that is truly pathetic. . Once in their new home the young husband congratulates himself on getting rid of his meddlesome father-in- law, but his ghost comes In the person o£ his old servant, Matt. The servant officiously waits upon Nell, but ignores Frank, a thing that augers the young man, and he orders him lo leave the VIOUSP. Shortly after Billlnss. liimsolf. appears, and Nell is of course, glad to see him. The old gentleman eats Franli's breakfast by mistake, and the young man in a lit of-tera- busines . . . :The little'woman! who has been the borie of contention betw.eeu the men. la broken-hearted at her husband's de- parturo, and, realizing that she lost him on account of her divided love for him and her father, turns upon the latter, becomes hyst<-ru::il, and falls in a faint, at his feet. A Mrs.. Canary. ,1 widow, opens Billing's pyi:s to tli<; ji.'irt he has played in wrecking- his daughter's happiness, and the old man shrewdly sets about effecting a reconciliation. He succeeds and then withdraws into the background of the young people's lives, tailing Mrs. Canary to wife. This Mrs. Canary is the opposite character to that of Billings, and is well drawn. She, too. has an only daughter, who is in love with a young man whose people ure crazy for society and appearance. -Mrs. Canary supports herself by selling fruit, and the young man is backward about marrying the little girl because her mother is "in business." The widow's love for her daughter is very strong and possesses no selfish qualities. • She would give anything to make her happy, and she therefore gives up her business and retires into private life. The young people have one or two amusing little quarrels, but, there being no further opposition from any one else, they get married in the end. Mrs. Canary gives up her little girl without a pang, and when the latter asks her to come and live ivith them she refuses, fearing that if she did she might stand in the way of her happiness. The scene where Billings proposes to Mrs, Canary is extremely amusing. He. Intends getting her to sign a marriage f-rtiiicaia witii some business papers MARTHA MORTON, an.l then hurrying her oft to a minister before she recovers from her astonishment. Just as she is about to sign the paper Blllings's conscience smites him, and he stops her and asks her to read it. Surprise takes posseslon of her and Is followed by laughter. Billings hails her merriment with delight. "]£ I can keep her laughing, I ve got her!" lie' exclaims, and he does get her. Another good character is that of Maynard Langdon, Billing's brother-in- law. This is a man who is a snob in. the true meaning of tho term, i He manages to dress well, spending all of his meagre income on his appearance. He goes through the world constantly look- Ing for insults, and he is forever finding them, even where none Is intended. Matthew, the old and "faithful" servant, Is another cleverly-workcd-out character. Matt has been in the Billings family so long that he is part and parcel of it. "Make your mind easy," is his favorite expression, and if appearances go for anything he Is constantly making his own mind easy in his master's wine celJar. The strongest character in the play next to that of Billings Is undoubtedly his.daughter, Nell. She at all times has the sympathy of everybody, for her position is not at all pleasant. She Is being smothered with kindness—those of her husband on- one hand, and those of her father on the other. She is not an undutiful daughter and not an un. loving wife, and her scene where, after her husband leaves her she becomes ; hysterical and falls fainting to the floor, is very strong. Mr. Crane has given the play very handsome stage settings, and Its company is one of the best seen in some time. . ADAM JTOLLET. FOR FOOTBALL REFORM. Players Sugsres «*; I • ^W^-JSSJ?

Our hunters were summoned, and, while Joseph interpreted, their swarthy faces r» eered throuffli the tent door into the light, and when the conference was over they received a handful of tobacco, coveted even more than food. These men were as anxious for a successful hunt as we could desiro, but their ad- rice was not always sound.

Sinai since the tragic murder of Prof. Palmer at the time of the Arabic rebellion is undeserved. They were probably induced by secret messages from Cairo to regard his .mission to obtain camels as an°act of, war, and they treated him and his companions »s they and their people have always treated their enemies. • I found them trustworthy.
