Editorial Correspondence.
"Washington, Feb. 2C The
dav for despisinir small things
should quickly pass with us of the
Pacific coast. To illustrator Pass
ing up The Avenue (Pa.) this fore
noon an Astorian was suddenly
left without his hat a gust of
'wind took it. As his weight might
"be considerable of an obstacle to
iwspeed, and chancing to spy a
colored boy near whose mouth was
watering for an opportunity to
earn a nickle (five cents) by giving
yur boots a shine, he started
"John" after the hat which was
speedily recovered, brushed, and
returned to the owner. Putting
ins hand into his pocket he drew
forth a quarter, the smallest piece
of coin he chanced to possess, and
handed it to the boy, remarking,
as he pursued his waj", that he had
paid just 400 per cent, more for
the service than it was worth
simply because he had a habit of
spending all his "nickles" for street
fares and newspapers. Hereafter
he will not be caught without a
nickle in his pocket.
The weather to-day is more
moderate, but still is too cold for
Vmnfnrt on the shadv sides of
streets. Our morning hour was
spent at the market taking a note
of how the 200,000 more or less
Washingtonians get their feed.
The picture is a novel one, but as
we described it last year pass on
to the museum building in course
of preparation for the inaugural
ball, then to Smithsonian institute,
then by way of the Botanical
gardens back to the capitol. For
fcome reason we had quite forgot
ten that an old-time acquaintance
in Oregon, Mr. Davenport, has
charsrc of the heating engines of
the house in the basement of the
i-outh wing, but this morning we
chanced to come in that way and
ran across our friend accidentally
the meeting was mutually agree
able, and we at once accepted the
invitation of Mr. D. to visit the
engines, the air ducts, etc., etc.,
which no person should ever think
of leaving Washington without
seeing. It would be impossible
for us to describe it, but it carries
onward the idea that the day is
not far distant when premises of
every kind in cities, from kitchens
-to places of business, will be warm
ed and utilized by hot air and
steam from grand central reser
voirs, like gas and water are now
served. The day is not far distant!
indeed it is now here in more than
one instance as is shown by the
works here, as well as those
of other parts of the country.
Among the "curiosities' shown
by this visit Mr. Davenport
illustrated to us how it is that
the capitol can be lighted in
stantly, so to speak; by the elec
trie spark. Substituting or fragile
frm for the delicate platinum
-wire which passes the slot in the
million gas burners, bade us step
Tipon a glass platform, taking in
one baud a small implement con
nected with a friction meter under
the engine belts. He then turned
the gas on at a burner within con
convenient reach, and pointing we
touched it with the fore fiinger of
our right hand when it was lighted
as if touched by a friction match.
Verily the Golden Age had but lit
tle t compare with the Age of
Gold in which we are living, light
ing gas with the tipsof our fingers!
heating whole acres of buildings
with artifical air heat; cooking for
thousands by steam, etc. d. c. i.
In a late number of "Old Letters
from the Editor" Don Piatt re
marks: I could fill ray letter with
illustrations to prove that honor
able men can commit assassination,
as Mark Antony said over the
feody of Cresar, but wliy waste
time and ink to demonstrate what
all thoughtful men can see so
clearly. All wicked men can be
respectable it they are only square
or the goose of politics. If this
disease was to break out m our!
penitentiaries the convicts would J
immediately have tlieir striped gar
ments covered with the glow of j
eminent respectability. When I
im dead and buried let it be en- j
graved upon my tomb J
