WISDOM AXU DRESSMAKING.
The Visiting Seamstress Recalls Dis
nter auil Omen*.
From the New York Evening Sun.
Vou think you’ll have it made wpli
a guimpe?” and the dressmaker who
had come in to help out with the chil
dren’s .sewing thoughtfully contemplat
ed the material before her. "Of course,
111 do as you say, and guimpes are
pretty. 1 ’ But the slight tightening of
the lips which accompanied this remark
spoke volumes. "If folks would insist"
the lips seemed to say, "if folks would
insist upon dictating to a dressmaker
who had made dresses for Lillian Stel
lar t sifter ond who had the promise
of Libiam Stellar’s own patronage, no
one could expect her 10 be responsible
for the final outcome.”
Then the lips relaxed and the line of
thought again became vocal. ”1 made. ”
she said, “a dress for a little girl the
o'hor day, of material something like
this, only much better, and I didn't put
in a guimpe. But then, it’s a point with
me never to go against a customer s
wishes and, of course, as you say,
guimpes are pretty.”
Her position at length defined and her
opinion Justified the woman who had
consented to sew for two or three days
to get the children ready for spring ti
lenced her voice in favor of the shears,
whose ‘‘snip, snip, snip” continued to ut
ter a protest against any clothes except
those of Lillian Stellar’s usister, and
against guimpes in general, as being far,
far behind the latest styles from Paris.
But the shears were not suffered long
to have it all their own way. They spoke
in quick Jerks or in long sweeps, but
they were too limited in expression o
suit the nervous little who wield
“Do as you’d be done by,” she said, as
she laid them down and snapped off a
long basting thread. “Do as you’d
done by and you’ll never be punished. I
tell you I’m afraid 10 do any other way.
I’m afraid of fire. Maybe you’re not so
afraid of fire as I am. I’d be very sorry
if you were, for it’s an awful thing to
have fire bop right out of the stove at
you as it does nt me every time the cov
er’s off. Of course, most folks laugh at
me when I say that, bu it isn’t anything
to laugh at. Why. many’s the time I’ve
seen a fire so low down that you’d al
most think it was out, ajid Just let me
touch a paper to it and It flames right up
and makes a dart at me. But it never
hurts me unless I’ve been doing wrong,
and that’s the reason I say I’m afraid to
insist upon having my own way or to
do except as I’d be done by.”
Silence as far as the voice was concern
ed here reigned, while the shears again
got in their work.
she resumed. “I’ve had some
pretty sad warnings and I expect the
next will about do me. Now, my hus

him I wouldn't have any more parlor
matches in the house to set the cur

of course, and so I took nil we had down

them to her and then I got some boxes
of sulphur matches. And what do you
suppose? You see. it was of a Sunday,

was baking over an oil stove and when 1

and didn’t take warning.
“You never use on oil stove, do you?
Well. 1 tell you if you ever should just
cover up the oven with some pieces of
carpet when you want to bake and It
will bake fine. I’d done that any num

From the Hartford Times.
During the last few* y ars a highly in

notably cn the managerial side. There
has beer a great deal of discussion about

iness touch of (he Hebrew is particularly
noticeable. In this < onnection an article
by Hillary Bell in the New York Press,
on the “occasion of die reopening of (he
Olympia theater in New York fcv George
Lederer, is of interest. The writer ds
elaims any bias in: favor of the Jew by
saying that he is a Presbyterian and his
views in the main seem fair. The Jews
are an ente prising jeople, says Hb.ary
8011. Always im-lintd toward art, they
have recently forced their way upward
in the theater. Anti-Semitic journals have
contested their progress step by step, ye*

Rachel was a Jewess. Bernhardt is a
Jr wees; Edwin Booth was a Jew by
blood and inherited genius. Olga Nether
scle, Emma Calve, Lilli Lehmann, An
te n Seidl, Mrs. James Brown Potter and
Minnie Seligman, if not Jews, were of
Jewish extraction. The greatest of all
impresari!, Maurice Gran, is a Jew. The
most enterprising and powerful of mod
ern managers. Charles Frohman, is a
Jew. The most artistic and refined or
theatrical directors, Daniel Frohman. is
a Jew. The Haymans, Klaw and Krlang
er. Nixon and Zimmerman are Jews. We-
I er and Fields are .Tews. Heinrich Con

most as many Jew’s controlling the stage
as there are employed in its perform
It is not po>B ble that the art' of our
theater shall become a separate province
.-if the J ws. It is not only possible, but
probab>, that the government of its ven
tures it ay be engross and by the Jews. Our
Hebrew iriends have ('©dared remarkable
aptitude for its affairs. They are shrewd
students of public taste, th y are courag
eous in expend ture, they are gcod losers,
rhey are philosophic and abundant in
hope, they have not personal fads or fan
cies to force upon the audience, they do
not take themselves or the drama too se
riously, they regard the entertainment of
•h* people as a legitimate business and
conduct it cn business principles.
Semitbm seems to be the spirit cf mod
ern advancement in the drama and mu-ic.
Gentile management has many laults of
which Hebraic management is free. Wi h
in the past doz n > ears we have observed
that various once famous and prosperous
Christians have been forced by the r own
errors to relinquish control cf play-hous
es that are now successfully conducted by
Jews. Managers who insist on giving en
tertainment which they want rather than
providing amusement that the public
wants have fallen by the wayside. Lester

they liked it, went Into bankruptcy. By

The Jews have no nonsense or selfish
s ntimtnt to the running of a theater.
Or afn Christian managers have compe 1-
ei t' eir patrons to accept haling women
with whom their relations were meretri
cious; other. 4 Lave Ore and their audienc s
to endure actors and authors for whom
they had no approval. Such errors are not
Hebraic. “Hath not a Jew eyes?” cried
Shylock. “Hath not a Jew organs, sens s
pa/sic ns. affections?” Verily, but he does
not allow them to be obtruded upon the
public. Business is business. A Jew’s ro
mances and friendships are as strong as
a Christian's,but they never interfere with
his purpose in farrving out any undertak
ing to which his efforts arc applied.
The Jews are not only hard working, in
defatigab’.e. brainy manager*; they are
stlf-respeciing. Scandal, too frequent in
the theater, seldom assails them. Certain
of the chef managers of Eng and have

“Thse ” to qu to Sby.ock again, “th se

never been scaneal in the public prints
about our Jewish managers The Jewish
entrepreneur does not, indeed, invariably
carry his private decorum into public. Mr.
Ziegfield is the author of and versions w’hich
have shocked modesty. Mr. Aarons in
troduced “Charmion” and Mr. Hammer
stein gave us the “Silly Dinner.” George
Ledger's nymphs at the Casino are scan
tily clad, and in the costumes of Edna
Wallaoe and Clara Bet* he made the Ju
dicious grieve. Yet these offenses are not
Judaistlc. Mr. Dunn In Twenty-third
street. Senator Sullivan in Fourteenth
street, and Sam Jack on Broadway are
conducting entertainments that are in m
w’ay to be recommended to decorous
young persons. The disrobing drama is not
nee ssarlly Hebraic, for it is to be noted
that the majority of our pnsent lingerie
entrepreneurs arc good Caholies.

Strange Remark of a t lifrago Youth
After I'.nmiging for Service.
From the Chicago Record.
A tvealthy resident of Chicago, who has
a summer home on one of the Michigan
lakes, recently decided to hire a sort of
m in-of-all-work and send him out there
for the coming season. He came to the
decision as he was taking an early morn
ing walk out on the Lincoln Park pier.
There was a mild southwest wind blow
ing and the perch were biting. One young
man in particular seemed to be having
great lu. k. He was leaning his back
against one of the piles, with his feet dan
gling within a few inches of the water,
and spitting languidly on his bait, wh*n
he first attracted the attention of the man
with the summer home. Tha ceremony
over, he jerked bis line deftly out, and
In another minute he had landed another
perch to add to his string. He repeated
the procedure three or four times, always
with great languor. The man who sra*
watching him. who is one of, the most
energetic men in his line of business, in
stantly conceived a liking for this pisca
torial outcast with the dirty, faded green
black coat and Impudent-looking face. He
observed, by way of opening the conversa

“Will you try it?’’
“I’ll try it. but if it ain’t good rn want

engaging smiie. He lit the cigar and blew
out the smoke luxuriously, and then added:
“That growed where they raised terback

“There isn’t much to do. I’ll expect \ou
to make yourself useful around the place,
of course. It's up in Michigan—t Paw,

St cowl In considering these offers, this
committee having In view that Laurel
Grove Oemeterj has been condemned by
th* health officers for years past, as a
“menace to the public health." could not
entertain offers rf lands adjacent to the
same, such ns offers numbered 5 and 7.
The offer of “Bonaventur Cemetery,
and lands adjoining, could not be ac
cepted by this committee, because the
pri e was mo high, rot enough land was
offered, end beyond all this. “Bonaven
ture” is, and has been, a cemetery since
1811*. anti it would be bad policy for the
city to acquire the remainder of the land
i.ot already u*'d by graves, for the pub
lic cemetery cf the future.
When Laurel Grove was laid out, less
than tifty years ago b contained 117.9
acn s when the population of Savannah
was about o e-lifth of what it is now. so
tha If a cemetery should be. acquired to
be laid out with narrow dilveways and
small lots, as the present one is, and to
los< less than half a century, about 609
acres would be required.
The Cemetery of the future should he
modern arid handsome, with broad drive
ways. larger lots, and with land enough
to supply ihe weds of our people for
more than half a century*
It should also he so located as not to
he In the line of p obable city extension,
and yet near enough; and its drainage
should he In a direction from and not
towards the city, nor shnu'd It be into
the Savannah river.
Third- After careful cc nslderatlon of
the lands off nd, and of the necessary
requisites of an w cemetery, the com
mittee has selected the Garrard tract.
Tibs tract, as offered, embraces 1.091*6
acres, extending from the Ogeechee Road,
to the Savannah. Florida and Western
Railway, but of which the owner haa
giv en to the county a public road through
same, and also a sufficient amount of
land for Buckhalter canal and Its later
als. leaving of tins tract 1 o>o acres, more
or less, which is offered ar $45,090, to be
paid for In ten years, in eoua! instal
ments. with Interest at 5 re*' cffi'um, pay

however, until Jan. 1, 1901.
This tract is a handsome one. well
wooded. in the right direction, southwest
from the city, to be a*c sslble and yet

Is on a water shed, the drainage of which
is carried off into the Ogeechee river.
Buckhalter <anal Is at the foot of this
water-shed, with laterals b?ing dug by
the county, and the committee has the
statement of (he drainage engineer of
the county, that the latera’s now being
dug in this tract will lower the plane of
natural water level between four and
The elevation of this tract, at atid near
the Ogtc* he H ad, is higher than Lau
rel Grove, lying about 37 feet, as shown
on the topographical county map. with a

canal, neat the Havanah, Florida and
Fourth—-The committee therefore rec
ommend. that the tract offered by Mr.
William Garrard, hereinbefore described,
and for the price and upon the terms nam
< and. be adopted, and that upon the exam
ination of titles by the city attorney, and
his acceptance of the same. Mayor's
t oies be issued in the usual form, upon
the delivery of satisfactory deed. --w
This committee further recommend, that
the owners of I ts in Laurel Grova
< ’ tnn ry shall not be deprived of the use
of their dots for burial purposes, but
tliar the sale of lots in that oemetefy
hall he discontinued as soon as may be
practical. Respectfully submitted,
