What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
THE LUMP CITY MINER: LUMP CITY, MONTANA: e FOREIGN DIPLOMATS. AMBASSADORS AND MINISTERS AT THE CAPITAL. How the Various Representatives from Abroad Entertain at Washington-- Pauncefote Does the Honors -- The Chinese Functions. (Washington Correspondence.) OW THAT So- ciety at the capital has folded its wings and its best dresses, put away its periwigs and paint pote and come soberly down to a diet of reflec- tion, the legation people will lose somewhat in prom- inence. Many them will take a vacation to erwder climes during the hot summer coining on. Underlings, whose air of impor- tance will expand in proportion as their actual rank and standing diminishes, will be left to hold the diplomatic fort. One who is sure to go for an outing Is Sir Julian Pauncefote, the English am- bassador. He is a genial, cozy gentle- man, Is Sir Julian, bright as a dia- mond. Washington likes Lim. He im- ported golf, and constructed for Wash- ington a golf club. Comptroller EckeIs was suddenly seized aril made a mem- ber of the golf club; albeit he avers that the story that he caused to be erected a red coat with a green collar wherein to perform golf was a rank roorback. When Sir Julian plays golf or lawn tennis he is followed about by a ckey who picks things up for him. Any- thing, everything, from the ball to Sir Julian, which falls to the ground dur- ing the progress of the «game is picked up by the faithful dorneetle. As one rides back over the trail ef the late social season one notes that a great deal of entertaining is done by the more Important legations. !ri this respect, the British embassy assumes now, and has usually taken the princimil part. A few monthsagoSirJulian received from Queen Victoria a very gorgeous service of solid silver, which included twelve dozen plates, providing for the largest possible dinner. This set was used for the first time at a repast given this last season in honor of the diplionati - c corps. All of the cabinet were invited. Sir Julian is a simple and unostentatious man, very hospitable. He entertains most handsomely, and at his dinners there is always a sparkling of young people, of whom he is very fond. The British ambassador gives two or three bails every season—,ne of them on the queen's birthday, in May. A ball at the embassy is in all 'essential le- spects like a ball given at the houee of any very rich man. There is an asiert- ment of diplomats, high offichils (..t the government, and people in society at large. During the season, Sir J-Ilian's young daughters, one of whom made her debut a few months ago, gave one or two dancee for the young people. The embassy has a kitchen like that of a hotel, and the allowance triade to Sir Julian by the British government is over f20,000. Old Washingtonians re- member when the British legation was located in the large brown stone bowie next to the Arlington, on Lafayette square. Here it was that Buiwer, brother of the famous novelist, who ne- gotiated the famous Clayton-Bulwer treaty, lived while he was minister. His secretary was Owen Meredith, the late Lord Lytton. In the library of this house \Lucile\ was written. Enter- taining at the legation in those days was lavish, as it was afterward during the regime of Lord Lyons, who was famous for his dinners. It's about time to tell that worm-eaten story of Henri .Labouchere again. He was an attache of the British legation in the old days, and exceedingly flippant. One day he .at in the offiee apartments of the em- bassy. A man with a vigorous and determined air came in; one of those people wile seem to tell you with every move that you musn't try any evasions or tricks with them, because they are perfectly aware ot your curves and you can't fool 'em. \Is the British minister in?\ asked the positive man. \He is not,\ replied Labouchere. SENOR DE MENDONCA. \Oh! he isn't?\ snorted the positive man, while a look of suspichms defi- ance (*Arne into his eyes. \Well I'll wait till he comes.\ - Certainly,\ said Labouchere airily; *sit right down.\ The positive man took a chair and held It for about half an hour.

Mme. Patenotre is a Philadelphia girl, American clear through, and that goes a long way in accounting for it. Mr. l'atenotre is a very handsome and dis- tinguished-looking man of about 45 years. Like his predecessor, Roustan, he came here from Algiers. Algiers Is one of the most important of French missions, owing to the large interest of France in northern Africa. At the name time it involves a great deal ot very difficult work, owing to the rascal- ly character of the Algerian govern- ment. Pierre Loti, not long ago elected a member of the French academy, has dedicated to Patenotre hie book, en- titled \Into Morocco.\ Patenotre's por- trait appears as the frontispiece. Notwithstanding the beef and pig war now raging between Germany and America, the former's legation has a high social fame at the capital. Ger- many's first ambassador to the United States is Baron von Saurrna. His of- ficial establishment is a handsome house on Massachusetts avenue. It is of brick and belongs to the German govern- ment. The baron gives a ball or two every year, and always celebrates the birthday of .Emperor William. He has one daughter—a princess—who is a favorite In society. To the balls all of- ficial and social Washington is invit- ed. There is no special exclusiveness in society. The predecessor of Baron von Saurrna was Count Areo-Valley. He was a bachelor, and famous as a giver of dinners, at which his sister did the honors. He was fond of music, and himself sang very well. There are only four real., live ambassadors here, the rest of the diplomatic board being min- isters. Italy has an ambassador, Baron Fava. He was for many years minis- ter, and was here so long he became the dean of the diplomatic corps; an honor he lost to Romero, the Mexican minister, when Italy recalled him to emphasize the New Orleans lynchings. Fava gives an occasional little dinner, but does not plunge. Congress has authorized an exchange M. PATENOTRE. of ambassadors between the United States and Russia, but up to date no advantage has been taken of the per- mission. The czar is still repre- sented in Washington by a minister, Prince Cantacuzene. The legation oc- cupies a brown stone front house at the corner of Nineteenth and I streets. The prince does not entertain this year because he is in mourning for the late czar. De Strouve was the predecessor of the present minister. It was during the De Strove regime that Alexander Greger, secretary of the Russian lega- tion, made such a splurge. The inheri- tor of one of the largest fortunes or Europe, he was ambitious to give, and succeeded in giving, more whirlwind entertainments than anybody. He was a paper chaser and vice-president of a hunting club. The blow -outs after the hunts and the prizes conferred upon the winners were all paid for by him. He had a dorachy and two Russian stallions, which he drove on alternate days; also a padded Russian coach- man, in a blue woolen nightgown. His successor, he who was the present lega- tion secretary, closed the late social season with his suicide. This unfor- tunate was the author of \A Voice From Russia.\ The legation Is just now mute and dark enough. The most important of the non -Euro- pean legations at Washington is that of Mexico. It has always entertained without regard to expense. The present minister. Romero, was the nod occu- pant of the new legation built by the Mexican government, and entertains delightfully at dinner each winter. He le addicted to large balls. Next in importance Is the legation of Brazil, which occupies a fine house built by the late Justice Stanley Mat- thews. It is a handsome structure of brick. The Brazilian minister, De Men - donee, gives a good many dinner par- ties and receptions during the season. The Argentine Republic lias a hand- some house, which was built by Stileon Hutchins. The minirter. Zeballos, gives many dinners. One of this season's greet social successes was the Chinese minister. The Japan -China *ar was raging and the Chinese felt the social necessity of going with the bridle off. Whether It was to impress the Americans in a friendly way, or to drown their troubles certain it is the ohinese never did cut such a .well ne they did thle winter.

The Board of Lady Managers Bids Fair it) Rival the ramous Body or the World's Columbian Portraits. Ezpoultiott—Some (Atlanta Correspondence ) HILE the enter- prise and energy or the men of Atlanta has been accorded that large measure of praise which they so justly merited in In tug- urating the areal Cotton States and International Ex- position, the pro- gressive and pa- triotic work of the women of Atlanta can never be spoken of in terms higher than their labor and success deserve. At the first conception of the big pro- ject they came forward and asked of the exposition directors that an appro- priation be made for the woman's de- partment, and the answer was that if they would raise $5,000 themselves the company would give them an appro- priation of $10,000 to supplement their efforts in getting up a creditable display in their department. They went to work after the manner of women, heart and soul, and by dint of untiring diligence anil various money -making schemes they have raised the snug sum of $13.- 000. The directors promptly came for- ward with their $10,000, which gives the women $23,000 in cash to begin with. When the directors appointed five ladies to act as chairmen of committees, Mrs. Joseph Thompson was unanimously se- lected as president, which responsible position she has filled most admirably, discharging all her duties to the sat- isfaction arid gratification of all con- cerned. It was decided that the build- ing could be erected at 'a cost or$15,000. but such has been the demand for space that the management has been forced to increase the size, which will necessi- tate the expenditure of at least 630.- 000, and then an annex will be required to accommodate the exhibitors and their interesting exhibits. One of the most serious mistakes, however, that has been made was in the decision of the board of lady managers to with- draw their offers of cash prizes and to substitute medal awards instead, which has already brought forth numerous expressions of dissatisfaction on the part of proposed exhibitors who do not feel justified in going to the trouble and expense of getting up fine exhibits of their handiwork with only the hope of winning a medal as compensation for time and trouble. The offering of cash prizes would bring out some of the most unique exhibits ever displayed at any exposition in the Site of products of the skill and ingenuity, not only of cul- tured women, but of those industrious housewives from the \cracker\ element so famous in Georgia tradition. There are a thousand and one things of that sort that seem small in themselves, but of surpassing interest to visitors from other sections who have been made fa- miliar in song and story with the won- ders of crackerdom and the native in- genuity of the women who fed and clothed the armies of the confederacy for four years while enYironed by hos- tile fleets and armies and shut out from all intercommunion with the rest of the world. It Is intended to construct the wom- en's building on an absolutely fire- proof plan, so as to protect the Invalu- able laces, jewéls, paintings and cost- ly fabrics that will enter into that won- derfully interesting exhibit of woman's handiwork. It is fortunate that these enterpriming lady managers have not sufficient mottle at present to carry out the original design of offering ade- quate and attractive prizes such as to excite more competition among the women of the state and bring a full display of the many things that would add no largely to the attractive- ness of the great display, which will be one Of the morn interesting features of the entire expoidtion. Mrs. Joseph Thompson Is naturally M BB DR. WM. FELTON the ty.oet eonaptctloUla woman In the state just now.

Next in order is Mrs. llugh Hagan, wife of a very prominent physician of this city. She is chairman of the ways and means committee, and has done some remarkably energetic work al- ready in the interest of the board. She is a handsome woman, and belongs t* one of Georgia's most illustrious tanul lets, being a niece of the late General Thomas R. R. Cobb, and a tirst couein of Mrs. Hoke Smith. Mrs. William H. Felton is a woman known all over the United States for her brains and arcomplishments. Sh• Is chairman of the executive committee It remains with her to say that no othe er woman in the south was ever invited to a seat in the state senate with the president of the senate. She has for years been foremost as a politician and writer of ability. Mrs. J. K. Ohl is chairman of the press committee. Her work will be to make pleasant headquarters for all visiting newspaper women who isit the exposition,. and to keep in touch with the writers on the great dailies. As \Maud Andrews\ Mrs. Ohl has been identified with the Atlanta Conatitu- tion or five or six years. and has done sonic excellent newspaper work. Per - atonally .she is attractive and interest- ing. Mrs. Leulie Gordon Is representative - at-large, and is on many of the com- mittees. She is as well known at the north as in the south, and is popular with the entire press and all of society. Mrs. William Hemphill Is the vife of ex -Mayor Hemphill. She is at the head of the professional woman's de- partment, and will introduce to At- lanta and her visitors all the brainy women of the United States, who will assemble here in congress. Mrs. A. B. Steel is secretary of the woman's board. She is the wife of a prominent financier, and was a neted MRS. LOUIE GORDON belle as Miss Kitty Wadley.

'enter, the first vice-pres - ident, is the wife of one of the wealthi- est and most influential bankers ot West Point. Ga. She is a stirring, able wenian and has already contributed much energy of thought and time to the great enterprise. The grounds for the exposition are situated in a most, charming loeality and are reached by a pleasant drive through the most fashionable streets of the city. The woman's building will command a picturesque site and will be easy of access from the main en- trances to the grounds. Mrs. Duncan Joy of St. Louis has been sel‘eted sub - chairman of the line arts, sculpture and - loans. The womefi of New York are doing some splendid work and will send more exhibits of interest and beauty than any other state. The visit- ing board Is made up of such well known women as Mrs. Grover Cleve- land, chairman, anti Mrs. Potter Palm- er, vice-chairman: Mrs. H. N. Iligin- bétham.

(From the Times, Philadelphia, Pa.) Stricken with Landry's Paralysis and yet cured. That means but little to the average layman but It means a miracle to a physician. Such is the rare experi- ence of O. E. Dallimore, of Madison', N. J. \Yes it is true that I had Landry's Paralysis,\ said Mr. Dallimore to a re- porter, \or else the most celebrated physicians of London were mistaken. - It was on the 15th of March, this year,\ he continued, \when I was in New York City, that 1 first felt the symptoms of my trouble. I experienced difficulty in going upstairs, my legs falling to support me. 1 consulted a physician, who informed me that I had every symptom of Locomotor Ataxia, but as the case developed he pro- nounced it a case of Landry's Paralysis and knowing the nature of the disease, advised me to start for my home and friends. I gave up my work and on April 1st started for London, Ont. A well-known physician was consulted, hut I grew rapidly worse and on Satur- day, April 7, several eminent physicians held a consultation on my case and in- formed me that I was at death's door, having but three to six days to live, still I lingered on, by this time complete- ly paralyzed, my hands and feet being dead, I could hardly whisper my wants and could only swallow liquids, and death would realy have been a welcome V isitor. \Now comes the part that has as- tounded the physicians. Bev. Mr. Gondy, a clergyman who visited me in my last hours, as he supposed, told me of the marvelous cures ot paralysis that had been performed by Dr. Will- iams' Jetlik Pills for Pale People. I started to take the pills about April 23 and a week after that felt an improve- ment in my condition. There was a warm, tingling sensation in the limbs that had been entirely dead and I soon began to move my feet and hands, the improvement continued until May 28, when I was taken out of bed for a driva and drove the horse myself. By the first of July I was able t.) walk upstairs alone and paid a visit to Nia- gara. Slowly but surely I gained my old health and strength leaving Ontario for New York on Oct. 11 and beginning my work again on Oct. 26, 1894. Cured of Landry's Paralysis in eight months.\ To confirm his story beyond doubt Mr. Dallimore made affidavit. Sworn and subscribed before me Dec. 3, 1894. AMOS C. RATHBUN. (Seal.) Notary Public.

A pair of curling irons with many strong points of excellence have just boen brought out by an English arm. The jaws are opened by.means of the lever projecting,which is worked by a linger or thumb independently of the grasp upon the main handles of the appliance. Having gripped the lock of hair to be curled in the jaws, the turning of the Iron is accomplished in the simplest manner possible. The longer arm of the iron passes through a collar on the lower part of the main handle, and terminates in a pin, which works in a strut projecting from the same. On the upper part of the handle, which hinges, is axed a ratchet which engages on a suitable pinion on the spindle. By simply squeezing the two arms together the tongs are caused to make a revolution on their own axis, and so curl the hair. It will be evident that with very little practiee the operation is performed very rapidly, without the tiring process of turning the wrist and without the necessity of reheating the iron World's Columbian ltrpoaltinn Will be of value to the world by Blue- trttlag the Improvements In the me- rhanleal arts, and eminent physicians will tell you that the progress In medic- inal agents has been of equal impor- tance, and as a strengthening laxative Syrup of Figs is far in advance of all others.
