VOL. 3. NO i. -OUR DISTINGUISHED FELLOW CITI- Copyrighted 1889. CHAPTER VII. THE DEATH OF OBIT. The new council, with Schney left out, was hardly organised before Mr. Grit began to develop that peculiar, restless energy, which, in him, always foreshadowed the approach of an election. His soft felt hat got turned up behind and turned down before; his hands got deeper in his pockets and his step quick and short. People began to stop him in the street and ask questions which he answered with a bark and almost with a bite. He allowed his shoes to run down at the heel and his clothes to get shabby. Occasionally he chewed tobacco, to which he was not accustomed, with the expression of a dog eating grass. Every few days he consulted Mr. Estimate, watching him anxiously when he spoke. There was nothing ornamental about Grit, but he was practical utility compressed. Peopie who knew him well said that in an emergency he was simply cooler and braver usual. When the active spirits met lar Exult...

VOL. 3. NO 2. Ella Wheeler Wilcox. Efla Wheeler began life under rather discouraging prospects, and her early childhood was filled with trial, loneliness, poverty, and disappointment, but she was a plucky country girl, and as the years 'passed she became known and ultimately a leading writer of tbe erotic school, She has written over 2,000 poems. Her first J production she sent to Mrs. Frank Leslie, who saw enough merit in it to accept and publish it. In 1883 she published her "Poems of Passion,*' which attracted much attention and were widely copied. At this time she began to develop surprising audacity in pushing her claims to social and literary recognition that afterwards brought her into notice in New York. Personally, Ella Wheeler Wilcox looks very unlike what one might fancy. Sligntly below the medium height, handsome, fair complexioned, stoutly built, but well proportioned, and of easy, grace ful carriage, there is nothing to suggest the "mountain of burning lava" she has de...

He resides at No. 120, avenue Champs Elysees, Paris, is about fifty years of age, has a magnificent sea-going steam yacht, and occasionally visits this country to give his New York office a typical Bennetian "shaking up." He visited this city in 1868 on a return trip from Florida, where he had been fishing. He stopped at the Spotswood Hotel and attended a day's session of the Underwood Constitutional Convention, where he was greatly amused by the speeches of ''Spec" Hodges, Lewis Lindsay, and other sable Btateman of that day. Some people allege that he is wrecking the splendid property left him by his father...
