Correct llrtry Word of It.
The talk of money being tight, and
hard times would quickly cease were it
made the popular rule to pay ondemund all
debts possible to be paid. The big loads
cannot be lifted so easily, and in pinching
times like theBo there is excuse for their
nonpayment; but this is not the case
with the little debts owed by people hav
ing the money in their pockets to pay
them. - When monev becomes a little
"tight" people are too apt to turn off

debt is not paid, the debtor is none the
more comfortable, whilo the creditor is
distressed and subjected to tho incon
venience of calling again. By the time a
hundred or a thousand debtors have put
into practice this system of fraud and
falsehood, the cry of hard times is heard,
a cry that would not have been heard
had the other and better practice been
followed of paying to tho utmost ability
of each individual debtor. Seattle Post

Ludlow street jail and lodged in a cell
ther. He refuses to see auv one. Gen.
! C. S. Grant states that the rumor that
his son, U. S. Grant, Jr., had fled to es
cape arrest was wholly without founda
tion. His son had gone to Morrison, N.
J., where he lives, and would be at his
office at the usual, hour. Both his son.3,
the general Baid, were in town, and in
tended to remain here. They had no
money to make a trip to 0anad3, even if
they wanted to get there. He was very
indignant that tho report had been cir
culated, or that credence should have
been given it. He i3 almost completely
broken down by the disclosures which
have become public since the failure. The
shock will shorten his life many years.
He converses freely with hi3 intimate
friends upon his troubles. He seeks seclu
sion as much as possible and fears that he
has lost the respect and confidence of the
country at large. The general is so sensi
tive that he shuns newspapers; therefore
he has still to learn of the magnitude of
the collapse and tho almost unparalleled
extent of Ward's fraudulent operations.

Tho introduction of illuminated ballet
girls has greatly added to tho attractions
of tho spectacular stage. Girls with elec
tric lights on their foreheads and bat
teries concealed in tho recesses of their
clothing first made their appearanco a
year ago, but as yet the uso of illuminated
girls has not sprebd boyond the stage.
There is, however a great future awaiting
the grand idea of incandescent girls, and
thoro is reason to believe that in a very
short time privato houses will bo lighted
by girls instead of stationary electric
The formation of the Electric Girl
Lighting Company is an event Fecond in
importance only to the invention of elec
tric lights. This company proposes to
supply girls of fifty caudle power each in
quantities to suit householders. Tho
girls are to bo fed and clothed by the
company, and customers will, of course,
be permitted to select at the company's
warehouse whatever stylo of girls may
please their fancy.
A very leautiful design for u front hall
girl will soon be on exhibition. Tho
present system of lighting the front hall
of a dwelling house has the disadvantage
that tho light whether it be a gas light
or an el -ctric light must be kept burn
ing all the evening, and that a servant
must be employed to answer tho bell.
Thus there is a doublo expense tho cost
of the light and tho cost of tho servant.
Tho Electric Girl Lighting Company will
furnish a beautiful girl of fifty or a hun
dred candle power, who will bo on duty
from dusk till midnight or as much later
a9 may be desired. This girl will remain
seated in the hall until some one rings
the front door bell. She will then turn
on her electric light, open the door, admit
tho visitor, and light him into the recep
tion room. One girl thus performs the
dutie3 of lighting tho front hall and an
swering the bell, and her annual cost' is
much less than that of a servant and a gas
light. If, however, the householder shoud
desiro to keep tho olectric girl constantly
burning and to employ another servant
to answer the bell, thero can ba no doubt
that the electric girl, posing in a pic
turesque nttitude, will add much to tno
deooration ot tno nouse.
Under tho present system electric
lamps or gas burners are fixtures, and
cannot bo moved from place to place.
The electric girls, on ihe contrary, are
moveable. One girl can bo mado to give
as much light as a large sized drawing
room chandelier, and she can bo moved
from ono room to another, leading the
way to supper, for example, and placed
wherever she can do the most good.
There can be no comparison between a
beautifully designed and chastely exe
cuted electrio girl and a massive chande
lier that constantly threatens to fall on
somebody's head; and every householder
of aesthetic instincts will bo glad to ex
change his chandeliers for girls.
An inexpensive electrio girl with one or
two candle power will bo of great uso
when a person desires to go from one
room to another in a dark houso. In
stead of having to carry a candle in his
hand and incur tho risk of dropping it or
of having it blown out by a draught of
air, the nappy possessor of an electric
girl can turn her on and send her beforo
him to light tho way. The student who
is now troubled by tho flicker of his gas
light, in his inability to move tho elec
trio light from ono part of his desk to
another, can be made perfectly happy by
an electric girl with a ground glass shade,
who will take any position that tho
student may de3irb in order to throw
light on his book or paper. No ono who
becomes accustomed to such n girl will
think of returning to old fashioned
methods of lighting.
The now company propose lo furnish
tho new light at n littlo less thin tho
chargo made by the Edison and Bmsh
companies, and' promise that in n short
time their light will be decidedly cheap r
than gas. Their plant already comprises
2,500 girls, and bet i oloctrio boys aid
footmen will be at the command of tho
public as soon as certain experiments as
to the possibility of enabling electrio
boys to givo n steady light are completed.
