As may In stipposed the pupil did not have much dlrtieiiltv in tdaeating the tfeiided master, and the lesson went on. Isut in futiirw the higli heels w-re discariled and in their place came slip era without any ln-els at nil, which lire the only proper fiot-car for either man or woman wnue lencinsr. fm tin? master was aide to say with triumph of his pupil: "She handles the foil as fnl urallv as if it were a needle. There nTe not many of my male pupils airninst wlmm I would not match her, if she had their ptrenjrth. It's a pity that more women don t fence. I like to teach them. Their movements are nat urallv more graceful than those of men. ami it is easier to train them to executa thrusts with delicacy, but when it comes to an actual bout with the foils they lose their heads. Conines mid judg ment are the essential characteristics of a good swordsman, and my experience in teaching women Is that these are qualities which women do not possess in any high degree. Tlie number of women who handle Ihe foils is larger than is generally sup posed, fcven in ,cw lork where feno mg has become a popular amusement onlv within the last few Tears, fencing- masters find plenty of female pupils, al though these are gonerallr actresses. Actresses are credited probably justly with taking more care of their beau ty than any other class of women. Now, women who are really careful of their iM-auty should not neglect their health. and no exercise is more healthful than fencing. It makes the carriage erect and graceful; it gives piippleness and elasticity to the muscles, it has tho ex hilaration that makes exercise palatable in fact, if a woman prizes a clear skin and a well-rounded figure, a foil and mask will prove her most ef ective aids; and this the voung women of the stage have not been slow to dis cover. Then again it not infrequently hap pens that iin actress is assigned to some part that requires her to make a dis play of swordsmanship on the stage. Then she g'oes to a fencing-master and after a few lessons she is able to make a graceful exhibition out of what would otherwise have been a bungling and uncouth scene. In Continental Europe the women are more fully awake to the advantay-es of fencing than they are in this country The Empress of Austria, whose daring honiiansliip, love for dogs, and general sporting proclivities are so well known, idds an admirable proficiency with the oils to her other accomplish men ts. All ihe fencing teachers of Paris have their eminine pupils, who are by no means restricted to the actresses. Young women of the highest classes in society ;'ence as regularly as they rule or dance. in fact, if it were not for a fencing lesson in the morning many of them would feel less inclination to dance in the evening. INo actual luel between women is on record, notwithstanding the notorious painting of "An Affair of Honor," which ornamented the Paris Salon a couple of vears ao. Nevertheless no one who knows tlie vagaries in which the women pf the V i-nch Capital sometimes indulge would bo fltirpiised to read of a sao- I guinary encounter between a pair of them at Vineennes or in the forest of St. Germain. I rememlier when I was a young provost In one of the big fencing schools in Paris," said the same teacher quoted before, what n sensation it used to causa when the hour for the ladies' lessons came. All tlie men except tlie master and myself were put out, but how they did beg to be allowed to stay! But the master was inexorable. He was an old soldier and believed in discipline. But they used to hang about the ibiors and Hk through the keyholes. One young fellow hid in a closet nice, but he was found out and ejected in great disgrace." KegisSenae.the genial fencing-master of the New York Athletic Club, said tho other dav that he never hail so many applications from women who wanted to take lessons as he has since Mrs. Langtry Iwcame his pupil. M. Senac is not her first master; she ha.i taken lessons in London, and is now more expert in the use of the foil than a woman often becomes. The writer was allowed to lx present at one of her lesson not long ago. M. Senac comes to her house in West Twenty-third street every morning while she is in town. He is due at ten o'clock. "And I." said Mrs. Langtry, "often don't rise until he is announced; for yon can imagine that sometimes it is a struggle to get up for a lesson, after having worked hard the evening before. But I find that I am the better all day for the exercise; so I summon up my cour age mid tumble into my costume. Mrs. Langtry s costume consists of a chse-fitting waistcoat of white buck- kin, large baggy trousers of white flannel that descend to the knee, and white stockings. Site is tooexeriencd a swordswoman to think of indulging in any extravagances In the war of heel. She wears buckskin gloves, but if her master were not an extremely careful man she wool 1 be obliged to wear a heavi!v-padd'-d glove, at least on her right hand; for one sometimes STts a rap with the foil over the knuckles hat maki-s the whole arm tingle. Tlie first half of the h-ssoti was juit over when the writer was admitted the ther morning. Mrs. Langtry had thrown a wrap over her shoulders as protection after the heat of exercise. while Senac was pacing the floor in all the glory of a black Telvet costume. After a few minutes of rest work was resumed and the famous leauty rubbid the resin on her so!e. pat on her mask, and fell into position witlt tlie left arm gracefully extended all as naturally as f she had leen brought up in fencin rooms. ltr motions nao: nono oi mo wildness and imsii-s which charac terize the etFrts of a beginner. Everv maneuver was ch-ati-cut and precise The plav of her foil was. so small that to tis M. Senac s favorite simile, it could have b"en executed within the ring of a voung girl. After about ten minutes of this exercise Mrs. Langtry claimed tho right to another rest. hen she hail rei-overet breath she was cloonent in praise of fencing, and told what it did for her. "Not onlv do I feel tho gixwl effects of mv morning lesson all through the lay." she said, in a general toning np of the whole system, but I find that my fencinsr is particularly valuable to me in mv profession. iLgives me a com maud over my muscles and a supple ness that are invaluable on the stage. M. Senac i as proud as a peacock of his pupil. lie gives her lessons m single-stick as well, and an extremely pretty picture she makes, twirling her light cane about her head. She calls it tho art of defending one's self with an umbrella. Senae wants her to give a public exhibition with the foils when she comes back to New York. Mrs. Langtry does not absolutely refuse, but she says that if she gives an exhibition only ladies will be admitted. Probably a good many men will feel inclined to put on petticoats for the occasion. A. Y. Tribune.. BLEACHED DIAMONDS. A Clever Met hint of Inrrea.lng th. Tain. of Inferior Stone.. Every one. of course, knows some thing about paste diamonds and Paris iliamonds and the thousand-and-one imitations of this gem of great price. And most people, we imagine, know the various tests bv which the genuineness of a stone is established; but the revela tions made at tho Marylebone police court the other day will probably be news to some of us. As to the case it self, wo need say no more than that the prisoners were committed for trial; but certain facts came out during the in quiry which possess considerable inter est for the public, or at least for those of the public who are the happy owner" of diamonds. That there should be any means whereby yellow Viamonds, which are worth about oue-seventh of white . . . i i Uiamonus oi uie same oize, can oe bleached for that is what the manipu lation amounts to so as to deceive an expert is enough to cause very serious disquietude m many a lair bosom. But Mr. Streeter went even further than this, for he gratuitously informed the magis trate that about two years ago a French man succeded in foisting upon the Lon don market some 4,000 worth of dia monds which had thus been chemically improved. It would be interesting to know what has become of those dia monds What has become of their doubtless numerous successors. So val uable an invention has certainly not been permitted to lie idle. SI.

Kew Yorker Maka at Uood Living. Jew York has not attained the unique distinction recently boasted by Taris of maintaining a beggar factory for maim ing liUle children, so as to render them objects of pity. Neither has it yet reached up to London in the possession of "neceasary stores." wherein every earthly thing in use by man is kept .in Bale. There is an audacious Teuton near Chatham Square who keeps hand- organs in mischief by repairing them. He assumes to replenish them with new tunes, but, of course, that is a fiction. for no hand-organ was ever heard to play any but bald-headed and middle aged music. Two courageous New Yorkers follow the useful but unpoetie business of hanging their fellow-citizens. They are not prejudiced in favor of New Yorkers, but are easily persuaded to hang men elsewhere throughout the Union. It is always pretended that no one knows their names and that -only the sheriff of this county has their ad dresses. One is a Hebrew, dubbed "Isaacs," and the other is a German, caiieu "Minzesneimer; out tne city always lumps them both under the one name of Joseph B. Atkinson, and under that name they draw C3eir pay. They rig the gallows and finally cut the rope. Four prosperous citizens earn . their livelihoods as doctors for the lap-dogs of rich women. As a rule the only medicine they use is starvation. They fl'mg the dear pets into barred boxes and deprive them of fiod for four days, having found out that the usual trouble wilh pet dogs is that they are fed ex travagantly and improperly. Just east of the Bowery in a tenement bouse re sides a man whose business is to rent himself and his Punch and Judy show to children's parties in the brown-stone wards. A person on the Bowery keeps six or eignt gins dust training wreaius and pictures of tombstones, whereon are ' set forth the virtues of deceased New Yorkers. He follows where the death notices in the papers lead him and works upon the feelings of the grief stricken families. Another man is making a fortune by carrying off all the waste and refuse the city will not remove, such as builders' leavings, dirt from cellar diggings' and so on. The builders pay him to take it. and then he sells it in the suburbs for tilling in sunken lands. Only one man in town pretends to keep photographs of all the notable persons in the world. There is not room for two in the business. Another citizen sells to public men and corpora tions clippings from all the newspapers that mention them, at five cents a clip ping added to a subscription fee each year. Yet another citizen hunts up eoats-of-arms and pedigrees for all who think theirs have been overlioked. or that they may get them from families of ths same, or nearly the same, names aa their own. This is quite English and therefore popular. It is said that the carriage-makers are giving away coats- of-arms like chromos. The trade in painting black eyes with a mixture of six parts white paint and one part red. now boasts several estab lishments. It is not popularizing the black ej-e, because it only covers up the scandal without producing forgetful- ness. One New Yorker has posted himself alxtut all the unclaimed estates in Christendom, and tiius profits by a weakness more general than most folks imagine. Another New Yorker searches the streets at night with a lantern for coins and ' purses dropped during the evening. A woman near the City Hall takes care of the babies whose widowed mothers have to go out to work, and who check them, like nmbrellas. in the morning and call for them in the even ing. Many women in the East Side tenements take care of a baby or two for their neighbors, but this down-town one is, I think, the only regular safe baby safe deposit company or storage warehouse in town. There is no matrimonial agency or husbands' exchange newspaper here just now. There have been many, but all have failed. That scheme is not as profitable as that of a man I met the nther dav, who told ra i he trained valu able dags to coma straight back to him as often as he sold them. Julian Ralph, in Philadelphia Pre. DECORATIVE ART. Deslrns Which Might iilvo a Sober Man at Case of Jlmjams. A pair of old castaway boots veneered with gilt make a pretty wall ornament. To add to the effect put patches of cot ton wool on the legs, to imitate snow. An old pair of corsets ornamented with creeping vines and pretty designs in leaf, make a very elegant ornament to hang over a bed-room door. An old coal scuttle tinted with deli sate shades of scarlet and cerulean blue furnishes a unique relief for a dining room wall. To brighten the effect place several selected vegetables in the scut tle, allowing the tops to be seen at a distance of half way across the room. As an ornamental design for a front hall take a dozen tomato cans and paint each one a different color. Tie a bow of pretty satin ribbon of various shades about each. Run a gaudy string through the lot and hang them on the wall close to the ceiling. One can hardly imagine the divine effect of this exquisite collec tion. Au old tin water sprinkler covered with a halo of gilt stars and pulverized jrlass diamonds and suspended from a parlor chandelier is very attractive. A large pink satin bow arranged over the jpout adds very materially to the effect. Whitehall Timet. THE TLAXCALANS. The Thrifty Inhablrknt. of the Oldest Re public In the Mew World. In Central Mexico not Terr far from the capital lies the oldest republic of tlie New World. It is Tlaxcala. the proudest c ity of all Mexico. It is purely Indian in origin and government. This strange people remained unconqnered until the Spaniards forced their en trance in 1519, and then Cortes treated them as national allies rather than ene mies. He turned their indomitable cour age and wonderful skill in his favor nd against their hereditary foes, the Aztecs, and was thus enabled to finally ubdue the Mohtezumas. The friend ship of the Tlaxcalang once pledged is nvincible. and the Spanish relied on their promise to convey timber for his ships over the mountains to Texeoco Lake, and thereon he built the fleet that gave to Spain her great American pos sessions. Tlaxcala is perched up among the nigh mountains and rendered im pregnable by nature on three sides and fortified by an enormous wall on the fourth, which defied the attacks of the Aztecs in many wars. The people hare the air and manner of freeman and are Inordinately proud of their ancient and honorable lineage. For the prominent part taken in the conquest by the Tlaxcalans Spain con ferred on them exclusive privileges. and to this day they maintain them. None but full-blooded Indians sit in their Senate, and their Government Is tempered by wisdom and moderation. In 1523 Spanish priests went over to Mexico, and soon the caciques or chiefs of the Tlaxcalans became Christians and were baptized under Christian names, and that is why so many Indians haTe European cognomens. The Tlax calans are very exclusive and rarely mingle with the outside world, and that is why we were surprised to see one among the Indian artisans at the Aztec fair. His name is Ramon Huerta, and probably is the only full-blooded Tlaxcalan who ever left his native land voluntarily. He was born in the cap- tal city, and in early life served in their little army of defense, but so seldom did the waves of revolution roll up among their crags that he became tired of inactive military duty and adopted the trade of silversmith. His phleg matic perseverance soon mastered his calling, and he began to elaborate, and so skillful was his work that it was sent to Mexico City for sale and this brought him to the notice of the AzU-c fair man agement. The Tlaxcalans are extreme ly phlegmatic and Huerta is no excep tion.. Since leaving his native eirv he has seen all the wonders of our progres sive land, and yet nothing calls from him an expression of wonder or admira tion, bnt undoubtedly he will carry back many a strange tale of his adven tures in foreign lands, which will sound like fairy legends to his primitive peo ple. AT. T. Graphic. TIPS AND FEES. ra-Amrrln. I'rsette Wlileti Should Reelv-e No Kafoiraitminit In his recent novel, "The Minister's Charge," Mr. Howells incidentally treats the matter of "tips" and fees to hotel waiters and others occupying sim ilar positions. Evans, the editor, offers the customary .ee to young Barker, a hotel waiter, bnt the latter refuses it with rustic dignity, saying that "he doesn't know as he wants any money which he has not earned." This sug gests the inquiry to Evans whether he is not quite as mean for offering the fee as Barker would have been had he ac cepted it This nuisance has grown to be abom inable and unendurable in the old coun tries of Europe and is making rapid headway in the United States. Twenty years ago it was not known m this country. To-day its practice is scan dalously prevalent It is one of those vices of European monarchy which have been introduced into America by the victims of Anglomania. It is a thoroughly contemptible, pernicious and un-American practice which should receive no encouragement or toleration by any self-respecting citizen. The American idea always has been that one should pay current prices for what he gets, whether it be a yard of cloth, a ticket on a steamboat or railway car, a meal at a hotel, or what ever else, and that that should be the end of it Also that whoever hires any one should pay him fair wages for his labor. But of late this theory has been crowded to the wall, and a system of perquisites, tips and fees has grown up which in some lines of service has at tained such proportions that persons can afford to pay for the privilege of serving employers instead of being paid by them for the service they render. There is one way, and only one way. to break it up. Let every offerer of a tip or gratuity feel that he is doing a mean ana humiliating thing, and that his honesty-and self-respect command. him to withhold the proffered alms. Let him make a matter of principle of it and stand out stoutly against the practice. A public sentiment can thus be created which will nip the vicious custom with a killing frost Chicago Journal.
