Yesterday Inspbctor Williams was officer of tho day. It seemed as if tbo crow ds that surged towards tbo massive building at Bixtb avenuo nud Twenty-tbir- d street woro larger, tbo young girls prettier and, within tbo ball, tbo excitement, bnstlo and confusion ' greater tbau sinco tbo fair opened. Somo one bas said that tbo porsooring attendants bnvo not given tbeir two weeks to tbo fair without good results. Indeed, if ouo doubts tbo statement, let hiin run into tbo fairy-lik- o jilaco of an afternoon or evening. If bo escapos with Iub pockctbook entire be may reasonably question tbo assertion. Hero is ono of tbo many ingenious plots to fill books aud doploto men's purses. That is, it looks very much like a plot. Listen. At tbo foot of tbo ball nightly a master organist makes the walls resound with lively mtiBic. To tbo left of tbo organ is a narrow passage leading botweon two rows of booths. At 1 each of the booths on citbor baud two demure-face- d maidens tako tbeir stand. Thou tbo organ belches forth its harmonies aud tho crowds flock to boar. They pour in from all directions, tho majority boing forced to find passage through this nanow aislo, aud hero at ev ory turn innocent-appearin- g faces appeal for charity. \ Can't j ou give a chance,\ is tho plea. And you say no, as though j ou meant it, and then try to pass along. You cannot. There you are, wedgod in by scores in front as well as behind, and tho probabilities are that beforo jou escape your namo is down for a stove or cradlo or a crazy quilt. Indeed these watchers at the aislo have beou compared to Bcylla and Charybdis of old. wrecking men's hearts and purses as tho mythological characters are supposed to havo wrecked tho ancient mariuors. There, is no diminution in receipts or at- tendance and tbo coaxing attendants aro just as bright and pert and dangerous as ever. There is no abatement in tbo voting interests. The Would is still in tho lead for tho oil painting of Charles Dickons to bo given tho most popular newspaper. Inspector 'Williams, a few days ago, seemed certain to win tho white woolly goat, but yes- terday was bis Waterloo, nnd now 0. 0. Shayno is in the lead. Tho ltev. Dr. It. 8. Hue Arthur bids fair to carry away tbo wntch nnd chain to bo given tho most popular cler- gyman, whilo V. 1C. McMullen Las a liko prospect for tbo jewel to be given to tho most popular lodgo member. II. 8. Herman ib ahead in tho voto for Mas- ter's iewol. Miss F Larason will probably win tho coveted diamonds to be given tbo most popular young lady, though tho ques- tion is n difficult ono to settle. H. J. Smith is leading in tho vote for the picturo for tbo most popular Fast Master of Brooklyn Lodge. A Ncwbergor loads tho voting for Dirigo Lodge Past Master's apron, and 0. A. Bono-di- seems to bo tho most popular Com- mander m tho two cities. Ho leads the com- petition for tho gold sword. Chief McCabe, of tbo Firo Department, seems to bo tho favorite for tho handsomo serene, and E. IS. Harper is the present suo- - cessful competitor for a beautiful chair and n tempting cake. Last night was artists' night. To-nig- thero will be a concert of classical music given by Herman O. 0. Korthem, pianist, as- sisted by George Werronrath and Louis Itnllromllnff Koutll.

It was high tido and breakers were rolling In with an angry sound tbat could bo beard even la tho church, whilo tho air was thick M with spray, carried over tho village by tho wy strong wind blowing from seaward. tverytbing indicated a storm, and tbo Vicar's heart sank within him as bo looked out through the blinding rain and noticed ipr tho first time that a vessel w as drifting slowly and surely towards a long ridge of rocks which Btretched out in hideous clear-nis- .s jus boneath tbo particular point from widch bo was watching. Np one who know anything of tbo sea and Usdaugors could fail to porcoho that within flew hours tho wreck of n yessol would bo lying on tho blaok ridgo that lay luring its tictim to destruction. Jf\'Oriol' was noted throughout tho sur- rounding country as boing a centra of great rlnirch activity, cud on this particular Bun-\a- y morning overy one connocted with tho church was in astute of oxoitemont, for it May tho new vicar's rirst day in the parish, it uo w come from n crowded district in be East End of London, and brought with tho,PataUoii of being a hardworking young olergj'man dovotod to his calling. Ht you lion Mr. Hemming?\ Mkcd the eldest Miss Spicer, who, closely at- tended by ber sister. Miss Arabella Spicer, had persisted in making her way up tho cliffs, and was now divesting herself of waterproof and pattens in tho little Iioroh. \Have you seen Mr, Hemming, Jones? I huppose he arrived from town last night, and Smith, the man who blows the organ, tells me you know Smith is our milkman that he saw him, and tbat be is dark and vouug, and and so interesting, you know, Mrs. Jones.\ \ So interesting, you know, Mrs. Jones,\ said Miss Arabella, who was nothing if not closo to her Bister, and had a trick of echoing the last fow words of all Miss Spicer's sen- tences. \ And Smith said that Thomson Thomson is a choir-bo- you know, Mrs. Jones, and his mother keeps that little muffln-sho- p in the High street Smith said tbat Thomson told him tbat tho now vicar had a very great deal of luggage and two largo tin cases with him, which w o suppose to havo contained a now set of altar-cloth- s, which aro very much wanted indood,\ continued Miss Spicer, with a final pull at a refractory patten, ''very much wanted ; though, you know, Miss Jones, it is not long ago sinco the ladles meeting mado Mr. Uontbam a present of a now silk ono very elaborate and chaste.\ \ Very elaborate and chasto,\ echoed Miss Arabella. \ And Miss Johnston gave ono last year.\ said Miss Spicer; \and Arabella and myself havo mado at least four others, you know, Mrs. Jouos.\ At least four others, you know, Mrs. Jones,\ said Miss Arabolla. \ So that no ono can say tho ladies of our church havo neglcctod to work,\ continuod Mibs Spicer; Bottling bersolf with dignlty,and making toward the Inner door; \and really tho last ono wo mado was pretty very pretty!\ \ Very pretty,\ said MIbs Arabella, prepar- ing to follow her leader into church, and nodding in a decided manner at Mrs. Jones, who was a homoly churchwarden's wife, and too much amazou at tho volubility of the eld- est Miss Spicer to attempt to talk much. \ Very protty, Mrs. Jonos.\ Tho bell had lust ceased ringing and the choir had only Just filed into thoir places, when tho dull booming sound of a signal gun rang through the noise of tho wind and rain outsido aud reverberated through tho church. Every one looked at his or her neighbor and shuddered, for thoso who Uvo by tho sea know what it is to hear the sound which tells them that tho lives of human beings ore iu danger. Another minute, and then the dull sound camo again through tho storm. Another re- port, aud (hen the new clergyman pawed up fr&j&ki MK )& the aislo and, pausing at the chancel steps, turned to tho congregation. As the light fell upon him it was easy to seo that bo was no common man, and that his was no ordinary face. He stood a full minuto without speaking, his hands clasped before him. Those who looked at him saw a man of slight, well-kn- it figuro, with dork, clean, shaven face, square mouth and chin that spoke of moro than ordinary courago and resolution, ond eye sthat seemod to read tbo very soul of any one who met their gazo. Ho was very pale, but his voico when he spoko rang through tho church clearly and dis- tinctly. \ My friends,\ he said, \wo meothero this morning for tho first time in our lives, to tako up tho mutual relations of pastor and flock, and under ordinary ciroumstances wo should have taken part in tho scrvlco of our church. But out in the blinding storm thero aro human be- ings, our fellow creaturos, face to face with death, face to face with etornity, and thoso of us who are ablo must go forth and do what we can to save them. You who aro not atyo to render such help, can yet pray for thoBo who are, that thoy may do something towards rescuing theso poor people. Flease God, wo may be ablo to thank him for helping us to rescuo those who aro now crying for us to succor 1\ Thou Mr. Hemming, who had gained moro goodwill bi that short speoch than if ho bod preached an hour-lon- g sermon, went quickly out of tho church, followed by tho men and boys and most of tho women, whoso agitation was heightened by tho sound of tho gun, which had begun to boom more incessantly, and by tho cries that camo up from tho beach below. Somo few remained terror-stricke- n in tbo church; but most hurried out and followed tho clergyman aud his littlo throng down tho steep path to tho ea. Once outsido the church tho whole scene, in its awful terror, burst on tho beholder, Tho vessel had struck on tho long low rlduo of rocks, towards which she had been drifting for tbo last two or threo hours ; and tbo straining eyes of the watchers could see dark forms on nor deck preparing to lowor the boats. Tho on tho cliffs woro to fire a rocket across tbo wreck, aud on tbo beach tho lifeboat was boing run down to tbo boiling and seething water. Everything was in commotion wh,on tho party from tbo church reached tho scene ; and a big burly man iu a thick peajacket was shouting hoarsoly for volunteers for tho life- boat. \ Are you men ?\ ho cboutcd in stentorian tones. Are you men wl' wives aud childer o yyur own, and goiu' to btan' by wl' your Sfiiiffskitju \i WIlX 00 WITH YOU,\ IIK SAID. bands in your pockets, whilo a lot o' fellow-me- n meets thoy deaths?

Men looked at eaoh other sheepishly ami then turned away with uncertain faces ; but no ouo responded to tbo big man's invitation till Mr. Hemming stepped forward and Mood by tbo two men, who were about to confront tho storm. \ I will go with you,\ ho said quietly. Tho big man stared at the slight figuro bo-fo- re him. There was something of incredulity, some, thing of contempt on tbo big man's facu as he looked down on tho man who volunteered to imperil his existence iu tho lifobont. \You'll go with us?\ ho said. \You're n bravo man to oiler that, sir. And I doubt you don't know whot jou'ro talking about. Can you pull an oar through a sen liko this?\ Mr. Hemming looked around at tho sea with a glnuco that took in tho wbolo sceno at onco. Then be throw off bis waterproof and advanced to tho boat. \1 think I can.\ ho Bald quietly. Tho crowd that stood round cheered, aud ouo of tbo choir boys from tho church w bis-por- tbo fact that it was tho now parson who had volunteered to go in tbo lifeboat. The big man seized tbo parson's bands. \You're a bravo gentleman, sir,\ said he ; \ you're a bra o gentleman, and God'li bless yyliystMAi?6ajtofwtiffi.uri you for this day's work. Now, lads,\ ho went on, \ there's tho clergymnn nnd mo and Tom White going to sovo as many of these hero women and chillier as over wo can.

I'll go, and God A'uugbty look after tho childor if I don't come back.\ And bo jumped in by tbo vicar's sido bo, known to tbo crowd as ouo of tho biggest reprobates in Elmsea, n drunkard, an idler, no good nt anything, and yet man enough not to stand idly by whilo follow-mc- u drowned. It was not much that ho over did for tho \ old woman and fivo kids,\ but iust then ho remembered them, aud it may bo that bis praorthat \ God A'mighty might tako caro of thorn\ was an accctitiihlo iu heaven as any petition aver heard there.

Thu spirit of bravery and during had been aroused by tbo speoch and action of tbo last volunteer, and ono by ouo six btrong, burly figures aiiiu out from tbo excited group, to join tbo four men who wero tho first to daro death in ordor to save life. It looked liko certain destruction to which they w em going, aud n tho little boat plunged horn and tbcro through n raging surf woman burst into loud lamentation nud strong men felt a thrill of fear run through them. Up on tho crest of somo giant wavo, down in the trough of another, bo far as to seem as though it wonld never rise again, went tho tiny black dot which carriod the precious liv ps. Onco it dropped out of sight altogether, and ahoursu cry went up from the watchers ou tbo beach. \ It's gone it's gouo I \ cried an old woman, whoso son had volunteered, and who, barebeuded and dripping with ruin, was watching tho boat's progress with strain- ing eyes. \It's gono and bo's lost I Oh, my lad my lad ! \ liut at that instant tbo boat roso nnd flouted gallantly over tbo crest of a wavo that seemed as though it would overwhelm uti)-tbl- that camo in its w ay. Another momi ut and it was close to thu wreck. Then tbo wares and tho blinding spray shut it out from tho view of thoso upon tbo shore, and a timo of sickening suspense followed. lly.and by a shout from tho coast guards, men, who wero on tbo elills above, hatleil tho return of tlio boat, which, more beuvily laden than when it left tho lieucb. was slowly but surely making its way back through tho roll- ing surf. bilontly and with eager eycB tho littlo crowd watched, and when tho boat pulltd iu many wero tho easer tiaiuls stretched out to receive the poor shivering pieces of humanity who hail ueeu resoueel from a ftarful death. Then the boat sued on to tho wreck again, and auam camo the watching, aud wailinc, and lira, iuc, tho Bobbin-- ; of women and tho deep concerned tones of tho men.

Thoir own boats had been smashed as soon as lauucht d, aud tho captain himself was faint from exhaustion. Hcarcely less exhausted woro tho v oluutoers, aud many a man staggered as ho came into tlio little group to be wept overhand hand-shake- n, and made a hero of. Hut them was jet work to do, and, though it was work for ouo only, it was harder aud far more terriblo w ork than any that had been done tlint day. For, m n Hiidilt u lull of tho wind, thero rang out n cry a terriblo cry that was heard distinctly by tho.so ou shore. \ Kvrry man's liuirt btood still, aud tho men tlint liad been in tho lifeboat lookod at eaoh otlu r \There's somobodv on board jot!\ cried the big man, who had been first to volunteer. \ God help 'cm!

A dense fog had settled over overj thing, ami hero and there men had lighted lanterns and weroeudcitvoring to protect tho ilomes from tho violence of the wind. Hut the wind was ribing and falling now, aud in another sttddeii lull tho shrill cry rang out again through the storm, Mr. Hemming started forward. \Trails ho said, \Icnn't stop hero and henr thnt cry without responding to it.

In another week all tbo trees will bo in tho market, and ovory ouo of thoso lots will becomo a busy mart. At tho foot of Chambers street tbo dealers havo been hustling nt a lively roto to get thoir stocji into shopo to catch tho tarly s, and they havo certainly mado an at- tractive dibplay. On ono sido of tbo central passage-wa- y two or throo Maino men ha o stationed themselves, nnd a Now Y'ork Stato man from tbo Catskills holds tbo fort on tbo other side. Thoro aro trees of all sizes, from the littlo throo and four foot scrubs up to twenty-fiv- o and thirty foot beauties with long aud gracefully tapering tops. Tho smaller trees are tied up in bunches of threo and fivo each, and aro piled up lougthwiso liko cord-woo- but tbo lnrgo ones aro placed erect against a w oodeu framework to keep them from being injured or broken. Tho Christmas treo trade is of such short duration that city business men do not caro to go into it at all. It is managed mostly by the farmers, who have comparatively littlo to do on their farms at this timo of tho year, and can easily find timo for tbo undertaking. Thoso who understand tho ropes can mako a very fair thing out of the business, but not vry much, they say, for if they muko a fair interest on the capital they invest in the busi- ness, and get paid for thoir labor, thoy aro satisfied. According to ono of tho Cotskill men tho first cost of the trees is about half tbo ex- pense of the undertaking. Those who bring tho trees to the city, go around among tho farmers early in November and buy up from each one ns many trees as ho will sell off his land, until they navo as many as they think they can soil. Tho trees cost them on an averago fivo to ten cents apieco, mostly five. Then thero is the labor of trimming them and tying them up in bundles, and the cart- ing and transportation, which mako up the other half of the expense of gottiug them to market. It costs the Maino speculators still more to gt't their trees to New York, becauso tbo oxpenso of transportation is greater, but thoy do not havo to pay so much for them, which makes expenses about oven iu tbo end. Tho largo dealers seldom sell singlo trees. Thoy dispose of thom by tbo bundle, or tho dozen bundles, to smaller dealers, who sell them at retail. Tbo smallest trees bring at wholesale 0 or CO cents a bunch of five, wnilo tho largo trees bring from $1 to $2 a bunch for threo. The largo smglo trees sell at from $5 to S10 apioce, according to size and shape. That is early in the season, when customers come around to pick out tho best trees. It always happens that a largo num- ber of trees are left unsold towards the end of tho holidays, and then tho finest that re- main are sacrificed ut any prico, for the farm- ers all want to get homo by New Year's. They usually manage things so shrewdly that thoy get enough profit on their early sales to cover all expenses, and then all that they make on tbeir later sales is clear profit. While the number of trees from the Cats, kills is less than usual this year, tho quality is said to be very superior. Some of tho tall- est and most symmetrical trees ever brought into tho market are among the Sullivan and Greene County contributions. They tower away above the Maino State trees, and it is observed that the Bparrows are patronizing them almost exclusively and will not roost on the Maino trees. From Maine tho contribution is about tbo samo as usual, tbcro being no perccptiblo cbango in either quantity or qua lty. Tho retailers sell trees from 16 and 20 cents up. The trees all belong to the balsam or bal- sam fir family, with now and then a small Bpruco treo mixed in. The balsam is tbo easiest treo to trim, becauso its branches aro flexible and tho needles aro not sharp aud prickly. A great deal of Christmas green is also sent down from Maine every year in bulk. Tbo queer part of the thing is that it is mado up in Now Jersey, wiiou. it arrivta hero it is out dowiV'to Keyport hbd that tloinity, whero the wives and daughters of the farmers work up a great deal of Jersey Christinas green, and it is twisted tip Into wreaths, Btars and various other figures, and woven into mile and miles of festoons. 1IIE AGE TO HE MARRIED.

That there are many happy marriages lato in life I know; but 1 think they aro often contracted on purely business principles. A man who has out- lived tho period when poverty suemed sweet if shared with tho girl be loied, wunto money, and he marries Iho woman who can give It to him, while the woman who has outlived tho Ircahueia of her youth Hilda herself In ono sense alone; or, she wants money cr position, or a home, or to eacapo from the ouo she has, and she marries from necess- ity rather than choice, sometimes finding happiness, but ofieuer the contrary. I icllee, too, that thero aro as many mistakes made between twenty-fiv- e and thlrtr-tU- e aa between eighteen and twenty-flv- ej and a I write, my thoughts go back to the far-u- tr grave of ono who, after a brief dream of happiness had awakenid to find hrr life empty of everything w blch she prized tho highest, lletween herself and her husband there was no sentiment in common, nor was one possible He lwd his ideas, and she had hers, and i oth were aa wl lely apart as the poles. In contrast to this is the case of an- other filend who was married at thirty-nin- e to a man about her own age, and who was and is still as happy as waB ever a bride of twentj. An 1 so one might go on citing Instance alter in- stance ou both sides of tho question, and the world would be none tho wiser, lor although sermons may be preached and volume wri ten upon the subject, our young people will still marry when they please.
