The:v is iii Philatielphia a clothing heif.e which has no doable in all the
world. The weild is full of clothing houses ; and it is :i v,e')d deal tD ?ay that
.one is unlike all the rest.
First, in its dealing ; and it is Mil-prising that one house .should differ
much from another. Selling clothing is se simple a matter, that it is likely,
one would .sttppe?e, te be done in very much the Fame way in Philadelphia,
New Yerk ami Louden. But Philadelphia is ahead ; and. curiously -?:ieu:;h,
one house in Philadelphia is ahead of all the rest.
Te he ahead in dealing is te dc.il en a higher plnnc, in a meic liberal
way, te give the buyer mere well founded confidence without less of the mer
chant"!, safety. This Philadelphia clothing house says te a stranger : "We
want te deal with c::aet justice. "We want what belongs te us, viz., a fair
profit ; and wc y.anlyeu te have what belongs te you, viz., a liberal moncy's mency's moncy's
weith. Our way te anive at this ie.su t is te niaik a psice en everything we
sell, which pi it.. i.- absolute ; and te let you buy what you like, go away and
think the bargain ever, and come and trade back, if you want te. We find by
experience that ll.ld liberality is harmless te is-.. Of course, you like it. And
it makes quick .n.d i tady dealing. V.'e don't want you te biing back what
you buy il would oe.st us money every lime ; but we would rather you would
bring back than keep, what you don't like. Se, v. e try te .see that you get
at fust what you will like the betitr the meie you knew of it. This is really
the whole philosophy of our dealings." Is it any wonder that no ether clothing
house in this city, or New Yerk, or Londen, di-ils in tlse same way '.'
Second, in Us geed- the amount and vasiety of them. Theic are ether
houses where excelk-nl eielhing is kept, and a great deal of it ; but theie is
iiisisc. anywhere, that keeps .se much. The. dealing related above has wen the
largest trade the weild has etseen. Te supply such a trade great quantity
and variety of clothing are '..quired ; and these in turn increase the tiv.de, be
cause everybody likes te ehoe:c out of many things, rather than out of few.
This is the country of ruady-made clothing. Great Ihitain snakes the
most, of any Kurnpenn country; but there is net :n all Londen any eielhing
business a quailer as large a thai of Oak Hall. New Yerk has several large
clothing liu.siiies.scs ; but no one nearly equal te that of Oak Hall ; Bosten

that is iK.t what wc hud in mind ; wc wiie thinking of the clothes you arc go

Adams ami Jefi'ersen.
Political KenilnKccnecs oILeesAso,
The admiuistratieB of Jehn Adams was
far from being a sueW.ss. The alien anil
sedition laws, enacted during that term,
have caused a b!el te rest upon it, which
time cannot etl'ace. It punished men for
being feieigneis and gave this president
the light te snyl them out of the country ;
because of the suspicion of net being right
in their politics. The sedition law pun
ished as a high crime the writing or print
ing or speaking disrespectfully ofL'enjjrcss
the president or ether hujh eflicial, and
the Tederal judges, sitting in judgment
upon thee 'scditienists,'' se constructed
the law that no one indicted could escape.
Fer a letter wiittcn and dated before the
law was p.ihsed, and printed In a distant
newspaper befeie any one in the state of
Vermont, where the letter was published,
had knowledge that it had, or would be
passed, Matthew Lyen, an anti-Federal
C'engiessman from Vermont, was indicted
tried, lined and impiisencd. These laws,
which in fact expired by limitation the
day 31 r. Adams ceased te be president,
reused patty spirit almost te ficnzy, and
from the date of 1 heir passage the deem of
the Federal party Vias sealed.
During the hitler p.irl of Z: Adams"
adiuiuibtiiilieti :i law was p.isseil creating
twenty-four new judges of the United
States courts. The bill dealing this bateli
of judges intended and the law madj
them lilts officers lingered in Congress
until after the fact of Adam.." defeat anil
Jeffersen's elect ion as prevalent was known.
Uetweeu the time lhi.- fact was knewn.l2th
of December, 1380 and the -!th of .March
following, several valuable ellices became
vacant, one of which was that of chief
jus-ice. and v.iih thenu twenty four judges
newly eieated had te belilled.
Te the chief just i.-eship, 3Ir. Adams ap
pointed, and ihe Senate confirmed, Jehn
.Marshall, en the List of January, after it
was known that Jeffersen was elected
president, although, as previously stated,
.Marshall held at the time, and continued
te held until Jcifersen.-; inauguration, the
office el" secretary of stale. All the ap
pointees were Federal, of course, and, un
der the ciii utnM.mees, JelVetsen felt
deeply indignant. Vi'iiling te (.Jen. Knox,
who had wiitlcn te congratulate him en
his election, 31 r. .Teilersen, in speaking of
these appointments, said that 3Ir. Adams
knew he was net making them for him
self, but for his successor, and hence
Jcifersen charaeieiized them as an out eut
i.nge en decency, which should net have
elieel, except in the life appointments,
which arc immovable ; " but as te the
ethers,'" the uewiy-eleeled president said :
" I consider the nominations as nullities,
and will net view the persons se appointed
as even candidates for their efiice, much
less as possessing it by any title meriting
respect." And every man se appointed in
office when Jc-ifessen was inaugurated was
promptly lemeved. The twenty-four
judges confirmed, sums of them, it is said,
by the Senate en the night of the Sd of
3Iarch, could net bj removed bc-ause their
office was a liie-teV.me ; but, upon the
accession of 3Ir. Jcifer.Mi!!, and with him
a Demeciatic Congress, the law was
repealed, and ''31r. Adams's midnight
judges," as they were called, had but a
short lease of power. A talc told, and
never denied, and for this reason has be
come history, says that up te the last hour
of midnight, at which time the administra
tion of AtlaniK ended, the. secretary of
state (Marshall) was engaged in signing
commissions as he get news of the Senate
ennlirming the appointments, some of
whom had been sent te the Senate as late
as nine o'clock that evening. While thus
engaged in eomniis.-iiening officials for a
new administration, Sectetary 3Iarshall
and his clerk, at twi-he o'clock midnight,
weie .startled by an apparition in the per
son of Levi Lincoln, of 3iasacl,.usetls,
whom 3Ir. Jefi'cii-en had selected as hi-,
attorney-general. The convocation be
tween Lincoln and .Marshall doubtless te
laled by Lincoln hims-elf is given as fol fel
'Lincoln I have been eidi-red by 3rr.
.Je lie i. -.en te take p.iiseshien of this olfice
and its papcis. m
:(3I;u .shall Why, Jcifersen has net yet
''Lincoln 3frr.iellei.sen considers him
self in the light of an executive, bound le
lake chaise ei the papcis el lit
ment until he is duiv qualified.
"-Marshall (hiking out his watch) But
it is net yet. Iii o'clock !
' Lincoln (taking a watch from his
pocket and showing il) This is the presi
dent's watch, and it notes the hour.'
Seeing that Jelfet seu was master of the
situation, and casting a woeful leek en sev
eral unsigned commissions spread en Ihe
table, 3iaihall left his midnight visitor
in posM'i-sien. I'i-hting (he incident in
after yea is, Chief Justice 3Far-.halI laugh
ingly said Lincoln allowed him te pick up
nothing but his hat.
Forgetting, or els!.' remeinbeiing but te
forget, the conduct of 3Ir. Jeifersen four
years before, when Adams was inaugurat
ed, and the graceful compliment paid te
him in Jelfeisen's Vice presidential inau
guration addies-. the cx-piesidcnt had his
catiiage at the White lleif-eat midnight
and left the city, net willing le remain
while his rival was inaugurated.
A few days before his inauguration 3Ir.
Jeffersen, as is the custom, called upon
3Ir. Adams at the presidential mansion in
Washington, where the president then re
sided, the government having been during
Adams's term, moved te Washington.
The outgoing president, although they
had been friends, accused 3Ir. Jcifersen of
visiting him le mew ever his misfortune
in being beaten for piesident. Of course,
3Ir. Jeifersen denied it his visit was in
tended as but a mark of respect. 3Ir.
Adams could net ba appeased, and Jeffer Jeffer
eon left. It was many years after before
3Ir. Adams was convinced of his error and
his want of courtesy te his old time friend
hut then successful lival. This 1'aei, and
the belief Adams had of the cause of Jef Jef
fereon's visit may account for his lefusai
te attend the innaguratien.
A federalist mere bitter than Judge
3Iarshall was net te be found in the days j
of Adams and ultra federalism, lie even
resorted te trickerv te aid his party and
his party friends. When en the bench, and
during the remainder of his life, he seemed
te threw aside his politics, and by com- r
men consent Chief Justice Jehn 3tarshall
is looked upon as among the purest and
ablest judges the country lias produced.
An ultra Federalist before he was a judge
yet many of his decisions were the i cversc
of federal, and- no man, in leading his
judicial decisions, can tell what political
principles he held.
A beautifully stained glass window, in

addition te various texts round the bor

Earl Dumaven's Experiences with Eullale
15:11 ami Texas Jack Twe Splcmlld-
LoeKms Men Uravi: as Lious
and Gentle as Women.
I thought I had never seen two finer
looking specimens of humanity, or two
mere picturesque iigures. Beth were tall,
well-built, active looking men, with sin
gularly handsome features. Bill was
dressed in a pair of corduroys tucked into
his high beets, and a blue llannel shirt.
no were :i ore.ifi-uriuimcu lelt iiat, or
sombrero, and had a white handkerchief
folded like a little shawl loosely fastened
round his neck te keep off the fierv rays
of the afternoon sun. Jack's costume
was similar, with the exception that he
were moccasins, and had his lower limbs
incased in a pair of comfortably gieasy
deerskin trousers, ornamented with fringe
along the seams. Hound his waht was a
belt supporting a revolver, two butcher
knives and a steel, and in his hand he car
ried his trusty riile, the "Widow."
Jack, tall and lithe, with light brown
close-cropped hair, clear lauirhinir honest
onto eyes, anil a seit and winning
smile, might have sat as a model for a
typical modern Anglo-Saxen if cthnolc cthnelc
. ists will excuse the term. Bill was dark,
with black searching eyes, aquiline nose
and delicately cut features, and he were
his hair falling in long ringlets ever his
shoulders in tine Western style. Ashe
cantered up, with his flowing locks and
bread-brimmed hat, he looked like a pic
ture of a cavalier of olden times. Ah,
well ! it is ycats are new since the dav 1
lirst shook hands with Jack and Bill, and
many changer, have taken place since
then. At that time neither of them had
visited the states or been anywhere cast of
the -Mississippi. They knew scarcely mere
of civilization and the life of great cities
than the Indians around them. After
ward they both went East and made
money. Cedy has, I belicie, settled down
en a ranch somewhere in Wyoming, and
Jehn Omolimulre, better known as Texas
Jack, has gene te ether and better hunt
ing grounds. Pqcc be with him ! He
was a geed ai.d kind friend te me, a cheery
companion, as brave tis a lien, as gentle as
a woman, always ready for anything, al
ways willing te work, cutting down
mountains of difficulties into mole
hills, always in geed humor, never quart cl
ing a better hunting companion than Jack
was in these days, or a mine reliable
friend, it would be haul te find. There
war. nothing mean about Jack ; he was te
use one el his own western phrases a real
White man. " Well," says Cedy, after the
ceremony of introduction had been get
through, and we had made known our
wishes and aspirations. "I guess we will
both go along with you gents, if you like,
and if I can get leave, and I don't knew as
there will be any trouble about that. Yeu
see Jack and I just started out this morn
ing te get a lead of meat, but there has
been considerable of a lire down toward
the forks, and scared all the game oil; and
as wc had net get no steies with us for
mere than a dav or two, we concluded te
come li'ht bac.." " Oh, Lord !" I said :
" tiie game all scared eJf, is it'.' what an
infernal nuisance ! It doss net leek a very
cheerful country te ride about in without
plenty of game te liven one up." " Xcver
you mind about deer and elk,-' cried Jack:
"you have no call te worry about that?
we will find game enough if you can hit
them ; you think the prairie don't leek
cheerful, eh '.' Well, it does seem kind of
dismal, don't it, this time of year ;
Ah !" he added enthusiastically, "but yen
should sec it in the summer, when
the grass is all green, and the flowers is
all a-blowing, and the little birdies is a
buildiug of their nestles and boohooing
around, and the deer are that fat they will
scarcely trouble te get out of the way : an
as te eating, they are just splendid, im
mense ! I"" tell you; ain't they Bill?"
" Yes, sir, you bet your beets they air.
Bill come en, Jack : let's fork our ponies
and skin out for the fort ; wc don't want
le step here all night, anyhow. Geed
night, gentlemen ; we will sec you in the
morning and fix that hunt all right, I
guess." And se Buffalo Bill and Texas
Jack " fork their ponies and skin out,"
while' wc bundle ourselves in the wagon
and rattle off as fast as six seventecn
liands high mules can tear te the i'ett,
where we weie most kindly and hospitably
received. Buffalo Bill and Texas Jack
were as fine specimens of their race auu
class as could anywhere be found, and that
is saying a geed ileal, for honest hearts
and stalwart frames and handsome fea
tures aie net rare among the pioneers of
western'eivilizatien. Jt might be supposed
that these huntcis, Indian trailers, cattle
boys and miners arc disagreeable people te
come across. This is net the case at all .
There are, of course, some rough charac
ters, regular desperados, among them, and
they occasionally sheet each ether pretty
freely in gambling quarrels and drunken
sprees ; but te a htrauger who knows hew
te behave himself, they arc, as far as my
experience gees, most civil and obliging.
If a man is civil te them they will be civil
te him, and if he does net interfere about
their affairs they won't bother about his
unless he wants their assistance, and then
they will be ready and willing te give it.
The manly sense of independence, the self
lespect, and that feeling of respect for
etheis engendered by it, which se strongly
characterize the Ainciican people, arc as
deeply marked and have as geed an effect
among the nomads of the West as in any
ether class of the population. Of course
if a man gives himself airs he must expect
te pay for it. I remember rather an
amusing instance et this. I had engaged
a hunter anil guide, a first-rate man. te
accompany a friend of mine. The day
before they were te start the guide came
te me and said: "New, leek here, 3Ir.
Eail. I ain't a-going te back out of this
bargain, because I told you I'dje ; but I
ain't sweet upon the job, I tell you. I
never came across a chap with such a let
of side en in my life, and I don't like it.
However, I said I'd go, and I'm going,;
but I ain't a-going at the price I told you.
I am going te charge him $1 a day meic."
And se my friend enjoyed his expedition
in blissful ignorance that he was paying
4s. 2d. a day extra for " side" arl of
Sunravcn, in the Nineteenth Century.
A l'eil In Will Tucker':; Trunk,
Tne I'iisseiis'.r All Kij;!ii, but Trouble with
llie ISugRage Twe J.culsville
Will Tucker and Ad Hitt, two boys of
Louisville, get their dcsiie for adventure
in the common way, by reading the
literature of Buffalo Bill and Texas Jack ;
but their choice of a Held was un
usual, for they decided te go Seuth
instead of West. They had very little
money; and here they again departed
from precedent, for they did net start out
hopefully afoot, like the boys we frequent
ly read of. They could just pay for a sin
gle ticket te Alabama, and they decided
that one should travel as a regular passen
ger while the ether rode in the trunk as
baggage. The toss of a coin tcttled that
Uitt should go in the trunk. A bottle
of water and some bread were put in with
him, and holes were bored te supply him
with air. Tucker drove te the railroad
station in a hack, checked his trunk, and
settled himself down comfortably in the
seat of a first-class car. But all did net
go well with Hitt. He was tumbled
roughly into the baggage car, and left
standing en his head. Other tiunks were
piled en his, nearly closing the air holes.
"When almost smothered he let out his re
maining breath in a yell for help. The
lid was broken. The contents had lest his
desire te ream. He confessed, and, with
Tucker, was sent home.
Fleeing from the Wrath te Cerac.
It is proper that the American people
should be aware that it is asserted en hiirh
autheiity that before the election was held
en Tuesday last, and while all the impor
tant members of the cabinet were absent
from Washington, the rcceid.s of the
vai'eus departments of the executive gov
ernment were overhauled by unofficial
persons who appeared in the several de
partments bearing the authority of the
chiefs of these depaitmcuts respectively.
This js a thing unprecedented in our his
tory. It cannot have been done without a
purpose. Xew what was that purpose '.'
Suppose the president, cashier and di
rectors of a bank all absent fishing, shoot sheet
ing or making slump speeches;, and sur-
per.e thai during their absence strangers

Let it be remc-mbcied that the archives
of the government cover four pievieus ite
pubSic.in administrations as well asthoad asthead asthoad
miuistratien of President Kayes, and that
the accounts of the nation have never been
examined by experts or officials net affili
ated with the p.ulv in power since the
Wc are new within h.rec weeks of t!.e
re-asscnibling of Congress. When Cen
giess meets, ene of the first and most ob
vious duties of that body will be te ascer
tain whether any departments of the ex
ecutive, and if se, which departments,
were visited during the absence net en
official business of the heads of these de
partments, by persons armed with author
ity from these heads te overhaul the papcis
in the archives. In investigating this sub
ject Congress should direct its atten
tion particularly te the department of
war, but it should by no means con cen cen
line its attention te that department.
It is piobable that, officials el stand

departments will hi; found te have p;o p;e
tceted themselves by iusisting that veri-
