VOL. 3. NO 6 OIR BISTINfInBHED FELLOW CITI- - Copyrighted, 1889. CHAPTER X. THE PUBLIC HORRIFIED. COLONEL SCHNEY having for a long time persisted in actively retiring from public notice and having energetically refused to take the slightest risk of being nominated for anything whatever, was beginning to be sought after. All intelligent observers could see that there were great vacancies in every direction which could only be filied by the very largest and best men and that the very best sort of men were unusually hard to find. In such a state of affairs it was natural that the mention of a vacancy or the necessity for a nomination should suggest at once the fitness of the Colonel. The Colonel's friends were greatly perplexed by the simple fact that there were several important positions to fill, all needing the best ability, and only one man who seemed designed by Providence to fill either of them, and that man trying his very best to retire into that delightful obscurity which all ...

in causcm. fact in front of my pew sit* a maiden— A little brown wing in her hat. With its touches of tropical azure And sheen of the sun upon that. Through the bloom-covered pane shines a glory By which the vast shadows are stirred; But I pine for the spirit and splendor That painted the wing of the bird! The organ rolls down its great anthem. With the soul of a song it is blent; But for me, I am sick for the singing Of one little song that is spent. The voice of the curate is gentle—"No sparrow shall fall to the ground"— But the poor broken wing on the bonnet -5b mocking the merciful sound. Close and sweet is the breath of the lilies ABleep on the altar of prayer; But my soul is athirst for the fragranee Far out in the bountiful air. And I wonder if ever or never. With white wings o'er weary and furled. I shall find the sweet spirit of pity Abroad at the heart of the world. —Chicago News. GRANDFATHER'S CLOCK.

THE PUBLIC HOBBIFIED IT was quite pleasant to be a pall bearer, because, of course, only the most prominent men in'the community would do. For a long time after wards if a man'said "Brown." and some body said 'what Brown?," the answer would be "why, Brown, you know, who was pall bearer for Honourable Conrad Schney." The plumes on the hearse were tall and black and nodded, so the papers said, with remarkable solemnity. Four white horses drew the hearse, steppine, neighing and tossing their heads in perfe...

THE information which the public received from the time the prisoner was sentenced until his execution was derived mainly from the columns of tha Spatterer. The able reporters of that journal, feeling that they had arrested, tried and convicted the prisoner and would probably be compelled to keep the officials up to the duty of hanging him, paid regular visits to the jail and did all in their power to keep the indignation ot the pub lie wanned up. They said that the prisoner's assumption of gentle manners was the most superb acting it had ever been their pleasure to study and that his personal cleanliness, politeness and serenity were only the cute tricks of villainy. One reporter stated positively that he had seen him eating as naturally as the most innocent man in the community. Another member of the staff informed the public that be bad tested the prisoner's feelings by giving him a graphic des...

Three times each day a man servant appeared and placed a simple meal on the table. When the meal was finished every trace of it disappeared. One servant woman kept the house in order. Nobody went to market or to the grocer's. The caterer who supplied the table understood that he was to be paid handsomely and was expected to provide elegantly. Curbing wanted time to read, time for music ana time to think. Mina wanted time to pet and console her mother and run around with her husband. Both of them wanted time to spend money on all sorts of people. Thev had no time to keep house. Mr. Curbing always confessed that he was not a practical man and had no desire to be one. With the cheerful consent of his wife and her mother, he placed his fortune and hers in the hands of a good trust company and never bothered himself further than to check for what he wan...

VOL. 3. NO 10. FOtt THE LADIES. Some Styles in Underclothing Among Fashionable People. Styles in underclothing are a sort of freemasonry business. Tliey are not given to the public through ordinary fashion channels. The pictures of nightgowns and chemises in women's fashi >n magazines are quite without interest to the "four hundred " Neither can the selections of these exclusive dames be seen even in the smartest and swellest of shops. It is considered the proper thing that there should be an individuality about underwear. It is the field for the cxpres sion of personal and poetic fancy, yet in dividuality must not run into eccentricity evtn here. There are set fashions, defi nite tendencies, which must be heeded, and which fashionable women learn one from another. The gnat distinctive tendency of the times is to silk.

m Taliaferro Family. itten for The Critic. Genealogical Letter 48 Tnliaferro—No. 1. I> The Taliaferro family has been so very numerous and so widely spread through out Virginia and the South and West that it would be now, perhaps, impossible to prepare a p< d grie including all of its branches. That given below (the earlier portion of which is derived chiefly from records at Essex Court House) contains all of which we have obtained well authenticated accounts. The nume Taliaferro is of Italian origin fspelt in Italy Tagliaferro), and the first of the family in Virginia was doubtless of Italian descent, though possibly not a native of that country, as he, it is believed, and certainly all of his sons, were Protestants. Perhaps religious persecution was the cause of the emigration. It should be remarked that in the extant records the name of the first settler is always spelt Taliaferro, with the exception of one or two instances, when it was evidently written by ...
