pen Picture of Mr. and Mrs. Stanley by
Nett Yoke, Not. 17. The lady is first,
ts of right. Mrs. Henry M. Stanley, sho
who was Miss Dorothy Tennant, is tall
and slight. She has a wealth of golden
brown hair, her eyes are large, soft and
brown, her complexion is like porcelain,
and she had when she arrived in New
York a great deal of color. Sho walks
gracefully, with a lissomo movement, and
her feet are as small as those of an Ameri
can belle. Sho is slender and her figure is
good. "When she arrived on the Teutonic
the wore a circular of blue cloth, trimmed
with gray fur, a black hat and a face veil.
Sho moves continually to a position near
her husband, and she has a habit of taking
refuge behind him when she is talking.
This, however, seems to bo a survival, for
Bhe will retreat behind her mother, if Mrs.
Tennant Is near, when questioned by any
one she does not know well. She has a
wonderfully epirituelle expression, the look
of a born artist, and the contrast between
herself and her husband recalls the old
proverb anent contraries in marriage.
It may be the fame which Stanley Afri
canus has won as a traveler and explorer,
as a man whom no difficulties may daunt
nnd no dangers detain, that produced in
my mind the impression he was physically
a big man. What was my surprise at hav
ing the smallest man in the group stand
ing near the Teutonic's rail pointed out to
ineas the man from Africa. Stanley is
about 5 feet 9 inches, I should Indue. His
face is of n peculiar color. There seems to
bo an under color of tan, as though ho
had been darkened by the sun and tho
bcarf skin had been put on afterward.
Hia hair is silver white, the tint being that
f frosted metal. His eyes aro hazel and

rather small, and ho has a trick of half
. closing them when talking to you. His
mustache is white, and there is not enough
of it to hide the expression of his mouth,
which looks as though he might bo terri
bly bitter in his speech on occasion. His
iigure is compact, and he moves as only
those mpVa who are physically powerful.
He is careless in his dress, as are most men
who have spent much time in the free lifo
of the wild; he woro his gloves unbut
toned and one end of his coat collar turned
up. Ho is terribly earnest in manner; ho
Impresses you, moves you, by this earnest
ness. Generally he talks in a rather low
tone of voice, but his sentences can ring
out as he becomes excited by the subject
matter of his speech. His voice is wonder
fully sympathetic iu timbre; it recalls tho
description of Cardinal Newman's voice:
"Thoro aro tears in ?t!" As he bpoke of
the men who died at Yambuya, the Arabs
Xnd Zanzibaris, I wish you could have
heard the pathos, the exceeding mourning,
tt the words: "These men were my men,
my officers. They did not belong to tho
committee; they were mine. Many of
them were old and tried friends whom I
had trusted only to find them true. My
friends died J here!" His voice expressed
tho 6orrow as well as the rage which filled
his heart as ho thought of that long
Tho man hecnis to be devoid of humot.
Jokes affect him not, nor does lie approach
tbem in his talk. Ho is grim as well as
earnest. Ilo repels and attracts at the
fcume time. Ho has an air of infinite pa
tience, and in his talk you aro impressed
by an evident thoroughness shown in small
things. This explains (o you his success.
Nothing is so little as to bo without a
claim on his attention, nothing so largo
that ho will not study it. But the suffer
ing ho has gone through has left its mark,
for on his face t here is a look as of one who
has drawn tho veil and gazed at death face
lo face, yet has not been afraid.

Having seen the congress of the United
States open its session and enjoyed many
hours in listening to its debates I naturally
wanted to "take a go" at the house of com

) In fact-more negotiation is required to get
a look at the commons in session than to
see President Harrison. The important
distinction between the capitol buildings
of the two nations is this: In Washington
the halls of congress and their galleries
make up most of the interior; at West
minster palace the hall is but an insignifi
cant room in the great building, while the
gallery is no larger in proportion than
that set apart for negroes in old southern
Nor was it easy toiirtd Americans who
knew much about the commons, for it is
a singular fact that of tho many thousand
Yankees in London during "the beason"
scarcely one in a hundred gets a peep at
tho house. To the question, however, as
to what struck them most, as different
from tho congressional proceedings, all
who had looked at parliament answered:
"The habit of cross-examining the cab
inet officials. There would have to bo
quite a revolution at Washington before
our fellows would stand up and answer
any question any member ot theopposition
part chose to ask."
As a matter of fact, tho ministers do not
answer all the questions; they are at liber
ty to "reserve a rpply when important in
terests might be jeopardized by premature
publication." And when they do answer
their words are often so ordered that an
American has to study them with the aid
of a world's atlas, a political dictionary
nnd a set of the "blue books" to get at the
exact meaning. It is .'.musing to note,
however, that human nature breaks out in
much tho same way at Westminster and
Washington. The members in tho minor
ity usually ask in such a way as to imply
that tho whole concern is going to the
"demnition bowwows," and the minister's
answer contains a marked implication
that tho British empire is now in the high
est state of prosperity, and would be in
much better caso were it not for the pesky

less be opened as many preceding ones
have been, by the lords commissioners
. that is, by the lord chancellor and five other
members of the privy council. Exactly at
I 2 o'clock on the day set Lord Chancellor
i Halsbury takes his seat "on the woolsack,"
and tho lords present also take scats and
remain silent for about one solemn min
ute. Then the lord chancellor walks into
a side room and soon mtppcnrs at the head
of the commission all the six in gorgeous
scarlet and ermine robes. They range
themselves on a bench in front of the
throne, and the cliHnceilor commands the
"gentleman usher of the black rod" (Hon.
Sir James K. Drummond, G. C. B., at pres
ent) to announce to her majesty's, com
mons that the lords await.
Tho commons meanwhile are having a
good deal of fun. The speaker siinply calls J
them to order, and thon they fall to talk- !
ing and laughing, inquiring as to each
other s health during tho recoss and chaf
fing" the late comers. The door toward
the lords opens, the cry of "Black Bod" is
raised and there is silence. He bows three
timos and delivers hi message, then fol
lows the speaker out, and all the members
march after to tho hall of the lords. Of
late years there has been much relaxation,
and few of the commoners listen to the
proceedings. The royal commission is read
by the clerks, each of the six commission
ers rising and bowing as his name is men
tioned. Then Lord Halsbury reads the
queeu's speech, but no one hears it. Tho
members will soon have the papers con
taining it, and so they, especially the com
moners, put in the time nocially. They are
theu dismissed, and go to their own hall

ever, in American history the clerk has be

on Feb. 2 Nathaniel P. Banks became
speaker. It is an odd coincidence that
after having been a general and governor
of Massachusetts ho returned to congress
for s time and at tbo late election was de
feated by Sherman Hoar.
Tho senate being ia t&eory a continuing
body, and having the vice president for its
presiding officer, meets very much as if
it had adjourned but the previous day.
Nevertheless the opening of a new con
gress excites general attention, and the
galleries are usually crowded, as they are
also at the opening of the second session.
At this tho speaker usually Bays a few nice
things about his joy at meeting the mem
bers again, and it is presumed that nothing
has lately happened to cause Mr. Reed to
omit that cheerful courtesy this year.
At tho opening of the next congress,
however, there will be fun. There always
is some fun over the proceedings of the
new members, and the house of the Fifty
eecond congress will certainly be "new."
Entire state delegations will consist.of new
men, and there will be nearly 100 members
who have never served in any parliament
ary body, not even a state legislature. Of
those new to congress 120 will bo Demo
crats and 80 Republicans as near as can
now be determined with a somewhat un
certain quantity of Farmers' Alliance men.
That nearly all tho prominent Republicans
of preceding congresses were "left" is of
common knowledge, but it Is a little sur
prising to observe that many prominent
Democrats are in the same fix.

Motive Power of the "World.
Four-fifths of the engines now working
in the world have been constructed during
the last twenty-five years. France owns
47,500 stationary engines, 7,000 locomotives
and 1,650 steamboat engines. Germany has
10,000 locomotives of all kinds, 59,000 sta
tionary engines and boilers and 1,700 ship
and steamboat engines. Austria has 12,
000 stationary engines and 2,800 locomo
tives. The force equivalent to tho working
power steam engines represent: In the
United States, 7,500,000 horse power; ic
England, 7,000,000 horse power; in France,
8,000,000 horse power; in Austria, 1,500,000
horse power, and in Germany, 4,500,000
horse power. In these ficures the motive
power of locomotive engines is not in

Keep Oat of Debt.
Every one who has a fixed income of any
land am and ought to regulate his ex
penditures so as to bring them within it.
This is a habit which should be inculcated
in the very earliest years. The child with
an allowance for his pleasures, be it ever
so small, should never be suffered to ex
ceed it or to draw upon the future. The
youth should be taught to undergo any
self denial rather than to borrow the
money to obtain a gratification. There is
more true independence iu this lesson than
iu hundreds of shouts or boasts of liberty,
which too often only convey the idea of
casting off duty and Obligation.
Such instruction, how ever, will bousele-v
while example points the other way. The
father and mother who live beyoud their
means, who incur debt for the pleasures ol
the table or of dress, or for tho vanity of
competing with neighbors aud keeping ur
a certain style of living, or for private in
diligence of any kind, need never expect to
cultivate in their child an honorable de
termination to owe no man anything.
A Primitive Town.
The picturesque inland town of South

dealer, lawyer or barber; nor on its streets
and highways can be found any black
smith shop, apothecary shop, milliner's
shop, shoo dealer's establisiimcnt, jewel
er's store or fish market; nor is there any
settled pastor to diiiiene gospel truths o
the people, but still the town gets on ver
well. The church pulpit is occupied abot:
every Sunday, and when the .services of any
professional gentleman are needed he i
summoned from the next town. The peo
ple live quietly but comfortably, and they
learn to do without many things that most
people count among the necessaries of life.
