THE FUNERAL OF COLONEL GOSS.
TOPEKA, Kan.. March 12. The remains
of the late Col. N. S. Goss, state ornitholo
gist, arrived today from Neosho Falls via
the Santa Fe at 10:30. They were accom
panied by the following relatives: Captain
and Mrs. B. F. Goss, of Peawaukee, Wis.;
G W. Waterman and wife. Neosho Falls;
J. Bishop and wife, Neosho Falls; W. P.
McConnell and "wife, Mankato, and .
McBrown, Fall River. They were met at
the depot by the state officers, Chief
Justice Horton, Associate Justice John
Eon, Mayor B. il Cofran and members of
the city council, the police commissioners
of the city, and the pall bearers.
The remains were escorted to the capitol
building by a platoon of metropolitan po
lice in full uniform, attended by the pall
bearers and followed by the relatives and
btate officers in carriages. The remains
were taken directlv to the senate chamber,
whero,they were placed in state in front
of t be president's desk. After touching
services in the senate, the body wa3 taken
to the Topeka cemetery and laid 10 rest
upon the little plot prepared years ago.
beside the companion whom lie lost in
early manhood and whom he mourned to
the very day of his death. The pall bearers
were Judge W. A. Johnson. Judge Samuel
A. Kingman, Hon. Samuel T. Howe, Hon.
P. L Bonebrake, Hon. James Smith. Col.
A. S. Johnson. Hon. F. P. Baker and Maj.
Wm. Sims. The funeral procession was a
Within the last few weeks the will of
the deceased was so changed that the
fund for the caring of his ornithological
collection reverts to his nephew, Mr.
Waterman, of Neosho. When Col. Goss
gave the sthte the collection, he exacted a
condition that the state should provide a
suitable room for his own private use.
This the state faithfully complied with.
Soon after making the gift, Col. Goss, who
was a wealthy man, made a will in which
he bequeathed a large sum of money for
the maintenance and increase of the col
lection. A little more than a year ago
Secretary of State Higgins gave an old sol
dier a lunch-stand privilege in the main
hall of the state house. The old soldier
feet up his stand in closo proximity to the
ornithological room, and the crowds that
daily visited tho collection were always
loaded with edibles. This offended Col.
Goss. and ho protested against the presence
of the lunch-srand, but Mr. Higgins re
fused to yield, and the old soldier held
possession. Col. Goss, who took great
pride in the collection, regarded the act of
Mr. Higgins its a lack of appreciation of
the gift, and he at once had his friend,
Kaiiroad Commissioner Humphrey, pre
pare a new will, omitting the bequest to
the state. Had he not given his word that
the ornithological collection should be
come the property of the state, this, too,
wouiu nave been witnarawn.

ALBUQUEHQ0E, N. M., March 12. A
most sensational affair has just come to
light at the Montezuma hotel. Hot
Springs. Six months ago a two-times
millionaire of Chicago brought his wife
and 10-year-old daughter to tho Springs.
The daughter was largo and handsome,
but somewhat weak-minded. On tho 10th
of February the daughter slipped away
from the hotel and was united in marriage
by a local justice of the peace to tho hotel
porter, u man named Hogg. The girl re
mained with her mother and nothing was
known of the marriage until tho father
cdiue to take the family home. Then Hogg
put in an application and claimed his
bride, bur offered, it is said, to compro
mise for 20,000. Tho girl said she prefer
led to go with her father rather than re
main with the man to whom she had thus
far been united in name only. Tho Chi
cago family left on tho morniug train and
Hogg followed in the afternoon.

MACOMB, Ills., March 12. A remarkable
curiosity made its appearance iu tho world
here 3'esterday morning. A mare belonc
ing to Asher Blount gave birth to a colt
about noon. The little animal was a per
fectly formed horse, with the exception of )
us neau, wuicu was as near HKe mat ot a
man as it could be without being human.
The neck is lather long and slender; the
cprebrum is round and about the sue of a
grown man; the ears are delicately formed,
and in proportion to the size of the head;
the mouth and nose, tuough in their proper
place, aro very much deformed, the two
3oining each other. The nose is like that
of ahorse, and the mouth is very wide.
There are no eyes, and apparently no place
for any. The little animal lived but a few
minutes It will probably be preserved in

A Lesson in Law.
A young lawyer who has been practicing
at the bar for maybe three or four years re
ceived one present which he did not appre
ciate. It was a nice enough present, but
well, the whole story had better be told.
One morning a messenger boy brought
to the young attorney's houso a package
done up in brown paper and tied with a
very inoffensive looking string. He car
ried the package into the dining room,
where his wife sat at breakfast, and she of
course started up full of excitement and
curiosity. In fact it was she who took the
bread knife and cut the string. Herhands
removed the brown paper and uncovered
the inner bkin of white paper sealed with
red wax. A card a plain visiting card
lay there. The young lawyer saw it,
and, heaven preserve us! blushed. The
card bore the name of a client of his whose
case he had conducted laboriously and ex
pensively to defeat.
"What does he mean by sending me a
present?" he asked. "The last time he was
in my office I felt inclined to pitch him
outpf the window."
"jrerhaps ho wants to make up, dear,"
his gentler half suggested, as sho proceed
ed to rip up the white paper with a silver
hairpin. In a few seconds a couple of vol
umes covered in law sheep were revealed.
The attorney took one of the books up and
read tho title, "Blackstone's Commentar
ies, vol. I.," the other book was volume II.
"What in thunder does he mean by send
ing me this!" he asked fiercely.
"I am sure I don't know, dear," said she
There was an uncomfortable silence for
several minutes. Then the attorney said,
with considerably more emphasis than can
be reproduced in words: "Now I know
what that fool meant by saying when he
left me that he would teach me the rudi
ments of law if he had to spend good
money to do it. I thought he was going to
sue me." Pittsburg Dispatch.

STATESMEN VHO ARE SPECIMENS
OF MANLY BEAUTY.
There Are More Good Looking Men in
the Upper Than in the Lower House,
and Here Are Portraits ot Some of
Washington, March 2. There are many
more handsome men in the senate than in
the house of representatives in proportion
to the whole number. Though there are
only eighty-eight senators, it iseasy to pick
out ten or a dozen of them who are the
possessors of so much personal comeliness
as to bo worthy of note for that quality
alone, to say nothing of their wisdom, elo
quence or wit. Of the ten handsomest
senators Mr. Hiscock is easily the premier.
There are few finer looking men fn the
world than Hiscock. He is a giant Apollo.
His height is about six feet one inch, and
his weight 225. He has a majestic figure,
and a face which would attract attention
anywhere in the world. His curling lip,
his large, kinelike eyes, soft and deep
rather than luminous, his abundant, wavy
hair, his classical nose and brow, attract
In the senate chamber Mr. Hiscock is
constantly in the focus of numberless
opera glasses, lorgnons, lorgnettes, spec
tacles, eyeglasses, monocles. He doe3 not
seem to know that he is the center of so
much interest. For a man of such great
personal beauty and so much ability as a
statesman Mr. Hiscock is agreeably mod
est. He is 54 years old, has a family, and
has been in congress a dozen years. Mr.
Hiscock wears a Prince Albert or "states
man's coat," and large, flowing, checked
neckties. His hair is dapple gray.
A few years ago Senator Butler, of South
Carolina, was considered the handsomest
man in the upper branch of congress. He
is still a very handsome man, though age
i3 finally beginning to have its effect upon
him. Mr. Butler is only a few months
older than Mr. Hiscock, but he does not
carry his years so well. He has a soldierly
figure, and about the finest manners in
the senate chamber. No man more
polite, more courtly, more graceful than
he, and when he moves about the
floor of the senate chamber there are
few who remember that the handsome,
dignified senator lost his right leg at the
battle of Brandy Station in 1S63. Senator
Butler has a small foot, a fresh complex
ion, "an eagle eye." Ho wears good
clothes, neat, black neckties, and but one
piece of jewelry a death's head scarf pin
with a sapphire in its skull. Mr. Butler
has been in the senate since 1877, and is
tho third or fourth member of his family
to sit in this body.
Many of the ladies who sit in the galler
ies at the north end of tho big Capitol
think Mr. Aldrich, of Rhode Island, about
the handsomest man in the senate. A
large part of Mr. Aldrich's reputation for
good looks springs, without doubt, from
his popularity as a man and senator.
Every one likes him, and in him we find
one of those rare combinations of brains
and heart which can be positive and ener
getic and stubborn, too, without incurring
Seuator Aldrich's popularity is by no
means due to any weakness or softness of
his character, for he is anything but that.
A plain, blunt, active man, who shirks no
responsibility or task, he still has a happy
way of making friends of all with whom
he comes in contact. His smile is bewitch
ing, his handshake magnetic. Jt L tho
good nature, the kindliness expressed in
his face which make his features hand
some. Senator Aldrich wears a double breasted
short coat buttoned in front, which makes
him look all the more like a business man.
He is tall, of graceful manners, his hair is
thin and gray, and he is not yet 50 years
old. He has been ten years in the senate,
and can without doubt remain here as long
as he likes, though it is rumored he in
tends retiring at the end of his present
term in order to go into some money mak
There are radically different opinions as
to whether or not Senator Woicott is en
titled to be put down as a handsome man.
The majority decides affirmatively. He is
a little thick, and he has scarcely any neck
at all, and there is a sort of disgusted ex
pression in the lower part of his face, but
his features are good, the shape of his head
really pretty; he has plenty of hair of a
kind which becomes him and it is always
neatly parted straight down the middle
he dresses faultlessly, and is good natured,
dashing, popular, full of animal spirits,
eloquent, heterodox, reckleos.
Friend and foe alike say he is one of "the
coming men" of tho senate chamber which
meac that he is destined to take a seat on
the front bench before he dies one of the
leaders and autocrats of the ancient body,
one of the select bus limited circle who
dare move an executive session or make
suggestions sotto voce to the presiding
officer. He surely will reach this distinc
tion if the good will of the women amounts
to anything. Senator Wolcoti is 42, no:
very rich, recently married, and would
spend his salary if it amounted to SHXLOCX)
A solid, English looking senatorial beau
ty is Mr. Dixon, of Rhode Island. He and
his colleague, Mr. Aldrich, are about as
unlike a5 two men could we.1 be. Aldrich
is fair and somewhatspare; Dixon swarthy
and of a stocky rlgnra. The senior sena
tor's hair and beard areImo9t white; the
junior senator's rsxurjou Tresses, thick
mustache and carefully groomed sido bars
are as black asjet. If there is any -imi-larity
between the two handsome senator!
from Rhoda Inland notice that Rhoda
Island, little thouch she be. comes Tiobly
to the front when beauty is tho theme 1$
is in their good nature, their affability, ap
Senator Dixon looks like the handsomest
coachman you ever saw in the West End of
London town, but he is American to the
core, and comes from a family in whose
veins flows the bluish blood of Yankee
dom. He is only 43, married, rich, likes
big bine lovers' knot neckties, and is proper
ly proud of the waviness of his inky hair
and of the infallible and unchangeable cor
rectness of the parting line therein.
One of the big, handsome fellows of con
gress is Senator Eustis, of Louisiana, a
man of large frame, tall, broad, huge fn
every way, big feet and hands, giant head
and expansive open countenance. His nose
is enormous, his eyes immense and full of
expression, and when he laughs, as he
often does right merrily, a large month is
exposed to view. Those who know him
well say his heart is proportionately larger
than any other member. Many strangers
ask his name, and not a few of them buy
his portrait before leaving the Capitol as
that of the handsomest giant they have
seen within its walls. Senator Eusti3 re
tires to private life in forty-eight hours.
Four exceedingly handsome men of ma
ture age and liberal hirsute adornment are
found in Senators Dolph, Berry, Stock
bridge and Hawley. The last named was,
indeed, but a few years ago one of the very
handsomest men of congress. His regular
features, soldierly figure, liquid brown
eyes, Napoleonic beard and mustachios
have ere this attracted the attention of
thousands of pairs of admiring eyes, and
will attract many more before their glories

are faded. Gen. Hawley is growing old, of
course. He has been nearly twenty years
in congress, was a gallant soldier through
out the war and a good editor four years
before the war broke out.
Senator Hawley is generally looked upon
as one of the young and vigorous men of
the house of lords, whereas his colleague,
Mr. Piatt, is quite as generally regarded as
an old man; yet Gen. Hawley is the senior
senator, so far as age is concerned. The
handsome senator from Connecticut was
married a couple of years ago, and is now
the fond papa of a yearling angel. Senator
Hawley was born in 1826, first came to con
gress in 1872, and is likely to remain here
as long as he lives. .
Senator Dolph, of Oregon, is considered
tho finest looking man of the patriarch
order in the senate. He is ten years
younger than Gen. Hawley, and therefore
is not old enough to join the patriarch
class. Senator Dolph is tall, graceful,
neat, and, as many of his enthusiastic ad
mirers in the gallery say, "the sweetest old
man with the softest eyes" that ever was.
Senator Stockbridge looks like an En
glish baron, almost like the last of the
barons. He is grizzled, severe, apparently
the concentratccUessence of senatorial dig
nity, exclusiveness and wisdom. Yet when
one comes to know him he is found to be
as mild as one of the ewes on his famous
Michigan stock farm, and a man who
would much rather talk horse than poli
tics. He has the true senatorial figure
round, solid, substantial, well built up in
front and ho carries it in the true sena
torial way, with his nose uplifted, his long
coat buttoned from chin to knee. But for
all this he is a handbome and a likable
A senator' much admired is Mr. Berry,
of Arkansas. He is like the "dark, hand
some man" of whose coming gypsy fort
une tellers are always prating to servant
girls and other foolish creatures. Dark
skinned, sharp eyed, bearded, abundance
of hair always neatiy arranged, a well
poised head, the look of a man of daunt
less courage and Indomitable will. Sena
tor Berry, despite the los3 of one of his
leg3 in battle, is not by any means least,
though he chances to be last, in the list of
senatorial beauties. ROBERT GEAVES.

monosyllable. Perhaps it is saved by our

and a terror to us, but yet there may be a
