jThd Ia?t'tnedtihg1 betw^dn WbsidenV
Grant and'Vice-ProsiOont Wilson is
thus described: Tho last meeting be
tween President Grant nod Vice-Prosi
dent Wilson was on the day after the
Viee-Prcsideut was originally attack
ed?Thursday, Nov. 11th. The Presi
j dent, much to the surpris? of many
who luid supposed that Mr. Wilson's
outspoken utterances on tho third
terra question and his criticism of
some of tho President's official acts
had seriously impaired the friendly
relations which had previously existed
between them, visited the Vice-Presi
deht at his room .at, Uie Capitol, He
was met by Dr. Baxter, who,'prc
ccding him, said to Mr. Wilson.
'Mr. Vice-Presidont, the President
has conic to see you.'
Mr. Wilsou, with great effort, par
tially raised himself on his elbows in
tho bod, when the President advancing
extended his ban.!, which Mr. Wilson
I grasped,"the President saying:.
j 'Well, how is tho Vice-President?
I I rim very sorry to find you ill.'
The^fice-Prcsi^ept ?eplied: 'How
do yo\t do, Mr. President? I am glad
I to see )'OUt I am feeling somowhat
The President, who had meanwhile
taken a sent by ttie bed, then i&iid :
*How did this conic about? When
j wore you. attacked? I just arrived
from New York this morning/
Tho Viec-Prc-ddeui then proceeded
to narrate with considerable particu
larity, but in a low, feeble voice, the
Kirioncr in wheeh he was scucd in the
Senate barber shop lifter taking a,
warm bath, and told how, when in
New York, he underwent a severe
surgical -opoiatiun,..the seating ?f the
I flesh over bis spinal coiuiun between
the shoulders with a white heated
iron, und added : 'I imagine the oper
ation had .something to do with my
present prostration. Don't you,
'Oh, no,1 replied Dr. Baxter; 'it will
undoubtedly hnvo a .very beneficial
edict. The immediate cause was the
warm bath,"which it was very impru
dent in you to lake, I fear.' He ad
ded, pleasantly turning to the Presi
dent^ 'the Yicc-Pnisi'teht ate too many
good dinners in IS'ow York.
Conversation then turned on the
President's visit to New York, lie
staled th?,t, Jp^wcnt Lhqre with Mrs.
Grai)t, who waqtcd.to do..spmcshop
ping, and that his visit was one of
business merely. He referred to the
weather in New York as very fine!
A pause ensuing in the conversation,
the Vicc-President asked : 'Do you
hear from Nellie' (meaning Mrs. Sar
'Ob, yes,' replied the President.
'Her mother gets a letter almost ovcry
week?by every steamer. Hie writes
long and very interesting letters. She
writes with great facility.'
The President remained about fif
teen minutes, when, taking up his
hat and rising, he said :
'I hope you will be better soon, Mr.
Yice-Presidcnt. I will come up again
this evening or send up to sec how you
arc getting along.'
'Thank you, Mr. President,' said
Mr. Wilson, again partially rising on
hia elbows. 'X nm obliged to you for
This was the last meeting between
the President and the Vice-President.
A Bravk CAi-TAm.?A very cour
ageous feat was performed by a Nor
wegian captain named Hausen, in the
latter part of October, off tho coast of
Eugland. iiis bark,loaded with iron
nnd deals, was badly injured in a fear
ful gale, and all her pumps were dis
abled. A smack came in sight, and
Capt. Hanson's crow, not believing the
vessel could live, left him. He re
fined j to leave, hoping to got his .bark
into IGrimsby. Ho mannged, all
alone, to set tho foresail, and to light
tho side-lights and the binnacle light,
and then steered toward the west. He
fell down several times from sheer
weariness. ? The cabin was full of
watorj but ho finally succeeded in get
ting his vessel into port.
What to Do with Tramps.
Tho authorities of a city have sent
a'circular to the authorities of other
cities, requesting them to meet in con
vention to diBCUBB the propor trcat
meut of tramps. Keferring to this
an exebaugo adds: The evil is so
large and so universally diffused, that
the action of towu or Stale authorities
coin alone grapple with it successfully,
and the effort now being made to se
curo uniform municipal legislation in
thp matter is a wise and necessary
What is needed is to set tramps at
work. No doubt, there is occasionally
an honest an-1, iudustrous man who
beconfes a tramp because he cannot .
find work. It would be hard to refuse
such n man the temporary relief
which hcs?.ely needs, but indiscrimi
nate private charity encouraged a
scoro of idle vagrants where it relieves
one real case of suffering. The lion
est tramp will gladly pay for food and
lodging by work, and the lazy tramp,
who discovers that he can na,longer
livo on charity, will find the charm of
profession gone. Let us have, in
every town, a relief commiUec of the
town officials, who will turn no man
away hungry, but who wijl require
tramps to work out the full value of
what they receive. In this way the
trnmp nuisance [can be speedily abol
ished, householders can be saved from
annoyance aud danger, while no in
justice will bo done io tho deserving
poor. 'Iho experiment has been en
tirely successful. The uniform^action
of all the towns in the country, how
ever, is needed before the tramp nui
sance can be finally and effectually
Where the Sun Does Kfot Set.
A scene witnessed by some travelers
in the north of Norway, from a cliff
elevated a thousand feet above (hesea,
is thus described: ?
i At our feet the ocean stretched
away in silent vastness;the.sound_of
its waves scarcely reached our airy
lookout; away in tho north, the huge
old sun swung low along the horizon,
like the slow beat of the pendulum in
the tall clock of our grandfather's
parlor corner. We all stood silent,
looking at our watches. When both
hands came together at twelve, mid
night, the full round orb bung'
triumphantly above the waves, a
bridge of gold running due north,
spanning the water between us and i
him. There he sjiojie in silent wajes- .
ty, wn'ich:'j..Jkuew ' no'" sotting.-J We'
involuntarily took off our hats; no
word was said. Combine, if you can,
the in?st brilliant sunrise and sunset
you ever saw, and the beauties will
pale before the gorgeous coloring
which how lit up the ocean, heaven
and mountain. In half an hour the
sun had swung up perceptibly on his
beat, tue colors changed to those of
morning, a fresh breeze rippled ovor'
the flood, pue songster after another
piped up in the grove behind us?we
had slid into another day:
Von Moi.tke's Strategy.?Count
Moltke, says a London writer, ou ?
recent "visit to Rostock, returning
homo l?te ono night, was unable to
find his way to his lodgings. .Ho
thought-oycr various schemes for find
ing out the rond without betraying
wdio he was, and at last hit upon the
following device: Ho went up to a
man who appeared to be a native of
the town, and inquired, in the broad
local dialect ' of the neighborhood :
'Can you Loll me whore'Count iuoitkc
is staying?' 'That I can,' replied tho
man in .tho same tone, 'he is staying
in tho large houso opposite tho school
in tho next Btreot to this.' 'Yes/ it
turncd the count, 'that's just what I
thought myself,' and he returned to
his lodgings delighted with the suc
cess of his stratagem.
Grief that Kills.?In ono of tl.o
cars of a Portland train, tho Argus

dressed in tho deepest mourning who
was taking home the dead body of her

The Wine.?l?t a' Kentucky din
ner, aud betwepn the sherry and
champagne, to wliic^ period the en
fant terrible ofj.ihc family had been
unfortunately permitted to linger, the
"host had gone.ftp. jiraising his qwn
wine in a. fashion which was ccrtaihJy
an evidence of its intoxicating quali
ties : ''That sherry, sir, cost me sixty
dollars a doze?. I bought it at the
auction of the.. Emperor Napoleon's
wines, and imported it myself."
"Wy, papa,"interrupted the enfant,
"that was allTtgonc long ago, and
mamma filled the bottles iip from that
California keg], Sho snid you never
had any friends who could tell the
