Long Island City, L I., March 17.���
Men running from women wishing to
to kiss them ng,luted the uoiinty court
here yesterday. Judge Garretson was
on the bench. A jury had just announced a verdict of not guilty iu the
case of Anna Wom-owlusku. a pretty
Polish girl, Hi veins old, charged with
a criminal offence. The verdict causd
a commotion among a ininiliei'of Polish women iu the rear of the court

the girl, and nssiiied him wilh fervent

It was in thesummerof 1S8��� that 1 made
the acquaintance of Miss Lola Kecder. I
had heen cnmpliiining tn n friend of mine
of the lameness and dullness nf existence,
with nothing to do or to thiuK ul-uut, when
nhe suid: "Oh, yon haven't uutliveil ccery*
thing; there's Homethillg to Interest you,
yet.   I'll take yuu to see MIssLulu."
"And who is'Miss l.ola?'"
"Slit's ihe dearest little old maid you
ever saw in your life. Her name is Reeder,
but everybody cuIIb ber Miss I.oln, Yon
shall see her first, and 1 will tell you about
her afterward.'.'
So, iu search of a new sensation, I went
with Stella Lakiu to visit this "little old
She lived In a tiny cottage, quaint and
old fashioned, net down, like a doll's house.
In the center of n wide sweep of ground,
hought when land was cheap, h'fore the
village bud atlaiued city dimensions, and
held onto In spite of many pecuniary in*
ilucciiicnts to part with it I'i the interest nf
urban progress. Uu either side of her were
blocks of city bnllilliiKx���terraces with their
long flights of sandstone steps leading up
to forbidding looking three story fronts,
whicli faced the street with their hot, red
brick stare of stolid Indifference, giving no
suggestions of home or hnpplne-p* within
their will's. Hit between ihein lay the
sweep ol Miss ijolu's bright green lawn, her
borders full of pinks und Imchelor's buttons, h"r porch ireiliscd Willi niistnrt'iim
in riotous bloom, and u shoal of sweet yeas
growiii- in pink and white perfection.
At the north of the bouse were roses,
not Ija I''riilice nor Mermets nor any of the
j cultivated favorites of present fashion, hut
cinnamons and damasks and homely hundred leafs and velvets uud impertiueut little bur--undies with their prim floral disks,
pretending to a legal kinship with the
queen of flowers.
"Can yon tell what there is at the back
of tbe house?" asked Stella, smiling.
"Oh, yes," said I, "hollyhocks und marigolds nnd southernwood and Jerusalem
cherries and sweet Williams and live for
ever and lemon balm"���
"You hare the power of divination," said
I found Miss l.ola just what 1 had conjectured her to lie I rom such environments.
She was little and prim, but gnu-etui and
genial.   Her cheek bore the color of a winter apple, which did net vary.   Ihe hnd
tender, dui'k gray eyes.   Her hair was a little silvered, but soft nnd crinkly, mid the
top of her head wns covered with n sqi'ire
of "bobini't," edged with thread lnce.   Her
gown wus of un old fashioned piittrm of
purple chintz and made in the mi-lent, stv'e
of round waist and full skirt tnut, having
swung around a :tu yenr<' circle, is with us
once again.   About the neck of this there
wasul'ttb' lace rulrie, ���mtlcn'm! the outlines ol a I. ir, Hue skimicu i,....... that had

When Stella had donated some skins of

on our way home, she told me Mis* Lola's

too big a man to quarrel and too conscious
of his own powers to yield a point iu anything.
Major Spnrhawk had lived a bachelor to
the age of 40. At length, however, the
erotic dnrt touched his heart, and he offered
to take a wife nnd miike her liiistresRof the
wife's appropriate department nf his bouse.
Sylvia Aspen was n small, (lulu-ate woman, pretty nnd accomplished.,
Fur several years she had taught the
primary departmental our common school,
and the superintending committee were
forced to acknowledge that hy no otber
teacher hud the scholars ever been so thoroughly governed ns by ber.
She had s=en 80 yenrs of Iff-., nnd for reasons best known to herself she had refused
all offers of marriage.
And now Major Hannibal Sparbawk offered her his baud and his Heart.
"Miss Aspen," he said in his binnt, dictatorial way, "you hnre known me long
enough and well enough to know something nf tbe home I cau provide. If you
take me. you will take a mugh, blunt mm.
who must Ih* his own master through life.
I bare my own peculiar views of the true
marriage relation. The man is the head of
the household. I can love and provide and
protect, lint 1 must he muster. As I am 1
oiler nyself.   You will lint lie deceived."
Sylvia smiled one of her sweet, eccentric
smiles, and with her small, while hand resting coi.idingly upon the major's arm she
told him she accepted the situation.
"Yon ure sure!" he queried.
"1 um sure of this," she suid, looking up
into his face with candid fervor. "I love
yuu will enough to marry you. and as for
domestic government Ihe result must he
ns the mult is tbe world over���the weak
must depend upun tbe strong."
Hannibal Spnrhawk kissed the little
woman ami assured her that he would never
ne tyrannical or unjust, and the day for tht
wedding was fixed.
People wonden J. when it was published,
that .Sylvia Aspen was to become the wife
of Major Spnrhawk.
"She will be a slave and a drudge!*' was
the general opinion.
In due time���in early autumn���Hannibal
Ppnrhuwk aud Sylvia Aspeu became man
and wife. Tht major had planned to hnve
the wedding a grand affair���to have his
military friends present in full panoply,
with a full band of mnsio and appropriate
fixings, but Sylvia persuaded him not. She
said but little���Just enough to make him
understand thnt it would please her to
have it different, and he concluded to please
They had been married two weeks when
the major proposed that he would invite'
the olTicerB of his regiment to dinner-staff
and line���about SO of tbem.
"I suppose such a dinner means wine and
tobacco, and plenty of it!"' suid Sylvia.
"Certainly," lespondod her husband.
"When I Invite my friends to my hnnse, I
expect to treat them accurditig to the lush*
Ion nf the times."
"Then, Hannibal, I would tathcr you did
not invite tbem."
The major laughed nt the absurdity of
his wife's whim. Sylvia wa* mild, but
"Of course," she said, witb a smile, "you
will do in this matter a* you please."
"Of course���I will," declared the hus*
dand emphatically. "Yon know what I
���old you iu the beginning. X must be
master in my own house."
"Um," interrupted Sylvia, with the
sweetest smile Imaginable, "suppose 1
could show you that the greatest possible
amount of comfort and joy you can find
will come from pleasing met"
She kissed him and then ran away.
Already Major Hannibal Sparbawk felta
nipping at his ear, at though something
were biting it.
Days and weeks pa-fed, and the ofllcer.
of the grand old regiment were not invited
to the proposed reunion at the major's.
It was whlsp-ivd that his wife would not
allow It, and yet when the odlcera individually had occasion tu call at tlie major's
residence Sylvia treated them So kindly
nnd so considerately and bestowed upon
ihei i so much careful attention as friends

in her praise.
It was on a pleasant afternoon of the following spring that the social circle connected with ourreligioussociety met at the
major's house. Late in the eveninga knot
of gentlemen were seated In the great oriel
of the back parlor, whilo at the center table near by were a tew oi thu ladles at
In the oriel the conversation turned upon
national attain-. Deacon IJich advanced an
idea in opposition to the cherished political
opinions uf his host. The major was fired
iu i: moment.
"I tell you, sir," he exclaimed, smiting
hi- huge fist upon his knee, "the political
sen '.intents which"������
li was the tapping of a knitting needle
upon the arm ui Sylvia's chair. The major
looked up nud met the (,-lsncoof hia wife.
He coughed and suumuured and then
smiled as hu suid;
I "We won't enter into a political discussion in the presence of ladies. At another
time, deacon, I will give you my opinion,
up-m the matter."
On their way home Deacon Rich and
Squire ljewis walked together.
I    "Well, deacon, what do you think now
about poor little Sylvia's daring to say her
' soul's her own iu the presence ol her husband?"
"I am amaited," confessed the deacon.
"Why, bless met she rules bim with a rod
of iron."
' "And yet," suggested Lewis, "he seems
happy and contented."
"Aye, aud there's tbe wonder. I can't
comprehend it, ean you!"
"I think I cau. There is one way, and one
way only, iu which u small, weak woman
can entirely subjugate and control a
brusque, herculean huslmnd. The majoris
pot governed against his will���in fact, his
wife does not directly govern him at all.
She leads him to govern himself."
Other people wondered as Deacon Rich
wondered, for it was apparent to all that
tbe doughty man of war and bluster had
become a model husband.
The only man perhaps who did not wonder was the major himself.   He was content with the prize he bad gained.   Once a
friend asked him if he was not governed by
his w.fe.
"No. sir!" w���� his emphatic reply.
"But you do her bidumg ueveriueless."
"1 do just what uiuum'u me," said the
major loftily,  "nnd if it phases me lu
please my wife whose business is it!"���

after sending the telegram stepped on

thinking his better half would not

enjoy one of the fragrant Havauuas he

Af-ulnst the Lords.
London, March 19.���A great demonstration was held here or Sunday
against the House of Lords und iu
favor of the Employers Liability Act.
It was under the auspices of the trades
unionists. London, between the
Thames Einbai'kment and tlie furthtr
side of Hyde Park, was filled with
workingnien and paupers, brass bands,
processions, banueis and truck loads
of spectators. In the great procession
the 400 banners represented ull trades.
One truck carried a coffin draped with
the Union Jack surrounded with the
sign, "The veto coffin of the House of
Lords." Before and after the truck
came groups of signs such as ���' Down
with the lords," "No hereditary law
makers," "The lords threw out the
employers' liability bill, let us throw
them out." The most troublesome
part of the procession was the bands,
for tliere were over a hundred bands in
line, and each insisted on inarching in
front of certain unions. Sometimes
four were playing within 200 feet of
each other, raising such a discordant
din ns to confuse in the parade and
elicit jeers from the spectators. In
several cases rival bands fell in side by
side. Some came to blows but most
of them fought ont tbe contest by
playing  bass  drums  and trombones
