Washington, D. 0., May 8.
Representative King of Utah in
troduced a resolution providing
for tho annexation of Hawaii. The
resolution declares that the terri
tory may be received into the
Union whenever the Government
of Hawaii shall cedo it to the
United States, the President to ro-
ceivo it by proclamation and Con
gross to make laws for its govern
ment. It is provided that the laws
for the exclusion of Chinese shall
apply to the islands and no Chi
nese there shall be permitted to

How to Wud Silk Vesta Wlthent Ironing-.
A very simple and pretty front is
niado of wash silk carved out at tho
throat lines and basted on n stiff collar,
about which a ribbon is tied, finishing
in a bow at the back. Tho silk is long
euough to hang a littlo full at the
waist. A thread is run about two inches
from tho bottom, drawing tho fullness
into tho front, and this is tuoked under
tho band of tho skirt and held firmly in
placo by the bolt of leather or ribbon.
To lanndor this all that is necessary
is to rip off tho collar, let out tho draw
ing thread, wash it thoroughly in warm
soupsuds, rinso in cold water and while
still vory wet pin it, strotchod tightly,
on a lapboard or any smooth surface.
When dry, it will be as free from
wrinkles us if ironed and as soft as new
silk. It is a great mistake ever to iron
thin silk, as, if dono when damp, it be
comes as crockly as paper, whilo if al
lowed to partly dry first it is almost
impossible to entirely remove tho rough,
dry appearance, unless u very hot iron
is used, in which caso there is danger

recent improvements havo been
made, however, which bid fair to
work a revolution in religious
worship, in Japan especially. Tho
up-to-date person who desires to
petition the throne of grace now
fastens his prayer on tho front
wheel of his bioyole and gayly
scorches along. The faster he
Sedals the greater the efficacy of
is prayer. In some temples a
single bicyole wheel has taken
the place of the old, clumsy con
trivance, and as it is mounted on
ball bearings and has very little
friction the Buddhist priests do a
thriving business. In this case
science and religion seem to go
hand in hand. Chicago Tribune.
Uncertainties and a Certainty.
The attention of the public is
now fully occupied and diverted
in the consideration and discus
sion of several important current
and prospective happenings. An
nexation, as yet unseoure, Re
ciprocity threatened; the coming
of the Naniwa, and her mission
after arrival; the outcome of the
war between Greeoe and Turkey
and, whether or no, all Europe
will eventually become involved;
tho settlement of the qtarantino
squabble aro all themes of much
conjecture and uncertainty, and
whilo opinions are freely offered,
none can accurately foretell tho
outcome of any of these matters.
