THE EVENING STAR. DAND1BS IP* FAST. A ?one the remark.ible dandle* of tbe past ?u i ?r(j peter-Uam, inventor of the presto >at bearing that name, and also of a particular kind of blacking- Brnmmell wai supposed to owe the brilliant polish ol bis boots to tbe nee ot champagne >n composition of bis black ing O'ner dandles were In favor of lavender and marascnlno Oolonei Kelly, of tbe Guards, bud quite a reputation for tbe superb polish of bis kootf. Uu sister wm housekeeper to tbe Coitom Hon?e. and on Ita being destroyed by lire, tbe unhappy Colonel perished witb it^ losing bis life in a desperate attempt to save Ilia precious collection of boots. Tbe s'ory told of Colonel Mathews offers a parallel to Kelly's story. Mathews lost a from tooth. to bif> rreat distress. He resolved to have it replaced by a tooth drawn Irum anoth er person's iaw?trusting to what tbe doctors called "healing by a second intention." Tbe borrowed tooth was fitted In its place accord ingly; but strange to say. the operation ended In inoculating bis system with some poison ous virus, which brought on cancer of the mouth. The nnfortnna e gentleman aid not long survive the experiment. On the news of Kelly's cruel fate becoming K iown, tbe?e was great anxiety among the candies to secure tbe services of bis valet, -who alone was in tbe secret of the wonderful blacking. Tbe valet stated that bis late master bad paid bim one hundred and fifty pounds a yeaT. but <bat be should now expect a great increased salary. Lord Yarmouth (popularly known as ?? Red Her rings," from his red whis keTs. hair and face, aid from the fish for which Yarmouth is famous) ultimately secured this lnvalnrble valet for two hundred pounds a jrear. Brnmrrell always insisted upon the soles of bis boots beinr po'i-hed as well as the upper lantbers. " He knew," says Capt Jesse, " the pronenees ot human nature to neglect itadu tie*; and, as a consequence, be could never feet satisfied that the polish on the edge of the sole 'would be elaborated with the care that he thought indispeLsable unless be adopted ex tr> me measures. He endeavored to secure his object by insisting that every part of his chaus sure should be equally attended to." Reduced almoet to destitution, he could h&rd ly be prevailed npon to abandon the expensive luniry of Veinis de Oultcn. ordered expressly for bim from Paris, at Ave francs a bottle. At last a merciless beo' maker threatened to im prison him ir a long overdue account for Ver nis be not paid. The poor bean writes to Arm strong. bis kind a?ent, imploring assistance: ?? 1 will enter into any promise wi h yon on the subject of tbis d?d polish that you may eiemand, ifyou will instantly enable me to pay tbis scoundrel." A month later he writes: ?'I have never trespassed upon the rules of economy which you dictated to me. excepting in one instance, and that has been that d? d execrable blacking. I have now relinquished it forever." Next he foregoes bis starched white cravats, appearing in tbat pet aversion of his life, a black silk neckerchief. Soon the poor creature has hardly clothes to his back, or shoes to his feet. Starch or blacking are very small mat ters to bim now. Four years after the episode of ??tbe scoundrel bootmaker," poor Brnmmell, paralyzed and imbecile, diseased and loath some, is dying in tbe "Bon Sau veur," Oaen. Lord Petersham was tall and handsome, and is said to have possessed a remarkably win ning smile. He flattered himself npon his re semblance to the portraits of Henry IV of Tran.-e. He was affec'ed in manner, and spoke with a lisp. He had a passion for brown. His carriages were of that hue, as were also his borses, and harness, and liveries This devo tion was supposed have bad reference to a yoG'bful affection of his lordship for a fair but fickle widow, whose name was Brown. He had also a passion for tea. His room locked like a groclT's t-bop. from the shelves against the walls supporting canisters of various teas, aed also large jars of snnff, with the names of ?ach description in large letters outside. ?ST In Secessla tbey five a man llab'e to do military duty so many days' lurlougn lorevery recruit he brings in. One conscript went to work and procured enough men to entitle bim to afurlrugh from Gen. Lee ol S210 days, which is over 22 years.
