Tlie Washington correspondent of
tin Chicago News says: "I met Rep
resentative Peters, of Kansas, this
morning, and asked him if it was
tni'1 tlmt lie intended to retire from
public life at the end of the present
session because he could not afford to
hold a seat in Congress.
" 'Yes.' he replied; 'I did not want
to come back this time for pecuniary
reasons. I told my constituents last
year that I had never yet been able
to live within my salary, nnd as that
is about all I have I must do so. I
have had my hard times and I don't
like to live in a garret or scrimp my
self. 1 can make a good living at
home in the practice of my profes
sion, and the last time I was noraU
nated I told my people I would re
tire unless I could make both ends
meet this year. I find that I cannot
do it, and and am going into a law
firm at my home."
"I asked Mr. Peters to give me an
idea of the expenses of a member of
Congress who is compelled to live
within his salary.
" 'Well,' he replied, 'I pay $150 a
month for an ordinary room at the
National Hotel, and it is a very ordi
nary room. Then I have to hire a
stenographer to write my letters and
send off my documents and seeds,
lie costs me about $100 a month. My
postage stamp account Is about $1 a
day. I pay out from $30 to $10 a
month for carriages and hansoms and
llerdics, riding around on errands.
If I didn't do this I would never get
them done. I have a man to look
after eases in the Land Office the
cases of niy constituents. He is an
expert and 1 pay him fees for what
ever he does, $10 and $'() a month. I
take and pay for about seventy-five
newspapers, all but two or three of
them published in my district, for
which I pay about $.K0 a year or $30
a month. Then, it you add about $r0
a month for incidental expenses, for
money loaned to impeunious per
sons who represent themselves to be
my constituents, and other purposes,
you will have my expenses pretty
well covered and the total is $4o0 a
month, or $")0 more than my salary.
I can't afford to keep this up."
The following is significant as
showing the character of men select
ed by a Democratic administration
to represent this country abroad.
Mr. Cleveland's lieutenants wereevi
idently men selected for their busi
ness capacity and brains.
Xew York, Feb.. I jondon corres

this paragraph: "It is somewhat cu

American Coasuls in the principle
English cities have formed business
connections in England. Russell, of
Liverpool, has hired a house in Lon
don and affiliated himself with Col
North, the Nitrate king. Hughes,
of Birmingham, has floated several
Ohio breweries here, and is reported
to have divided half a million dollars
with (low Campbell of Ohio, from
profits of their joint speculations.
Tom Waller, the ex-Consul General,
has enough law business in England
to call him over here every three or
four months. And now Maj. E. J.
Hale, ex-Consul in Manchester, has
gone to India to represent a powerful
syndicate of North of England capi
talists. The exact nature of his er
rand Maj. Hale declined to state for
fear a rival concern should get w ind
of it and spoil his plans by cable.

Congressman Anderson, of Kansas,
says the Washington Ppst, is a great
stickler for parliamentary law, knows
his rights on the floor, and is always
ready to assert them. " He is also a
good judge of a cigar, and never loses
an opportunity to enjoy ote. This
latter charactistic leads him to often
vary the monotony' of the proceed
ings1 in Congress by" indulging in a
quiet smoke, and he does not "al ways
go to the cloak-room to burn his
Havanas. Speaker Reed is not at all
averse to smoking, but he does not
regard the floor of the House as quite
the proper place for members to in
dulge in this pastime. Looking up
from a little memorandum he was
engaged In studying, he observed
that the member from Kansas was
enveloped in a dense cloud of smoke,
and this fact seemed to.annoy him
considerably. lie gave several ner
vous glances in that direction, and
finally called one of the assistants of
the Sergeant-at-Arms to his side and
directed him to go to Mr. Andersen
and inform him that the rules of the
House prohibited smoking on the
floor. The official . delivered the
Speaker's message and the member
from Kansas took on a look of sur
prise and said: "Why, that U a sin
gular message to come from Mr.
Reed. I supposed him to bo better
posted than that. Please present my
compliments .to the Speaker and say
to him that his house kas no rules.
At least I have not heard of any be
ing adopted," The Speaker saw the
point and could not suppress a smile,
as he was compelled to admit that it
was well taken. He was powerless
to prevent tho Kausas gentleman fom
smoking, bnt a personal request from
the Speaker had the desired effect,
and Mr. Anderson finally adjourned
to the cloak-room with his torch.
As a family medicine we cannot
too highly recommend Laxador, the
famous household remedy. It should
always be kept on hand.
A celebrated physician says that a
comfortable, as contrasted with an
austere, mode of life is the most
natural, and therefore the healthiest
and best. We sometimes wander
why those who live by rule and
tremble as they live, laboring to eat
and drink precisely what is "good for
them," and nothing else, are so
weakly and miserable. The cause of
failure is that such persons are over
careful; life is a burden to them
They have no "go" in their mode of
existence. One-half of the "dyspep
tics" we see, and whose sufferings
we are asked to relieve, would be
well if they were only happy. Ev
erything in life and nature acts and
reacts in a circle. Be happy, and
your sympathetic canglia will have
the blood coursing through them
with the bound of health; and this
quickening of the pulse, if it be pro
duced by "good cheer," whether at
the table or on the mountain-side,
will in its turn, produce happiness
Felicity is the outcome of a ' physica
state, and that state is itself enhanced
by the sort of ' .heerfulness which
often consists-in being happy in spite
of circumstances. Charles Dickens
was in his way a philosopher, and
he exemplified the truth now ex
pounded by scientists in the limning
of that, incomparable character Mark
It regulates the bowels, cures diar
rhooa, dysentery and wind colic; in
fact Dr. Bull's Baby Syrup acts

Cure for Hydrophobia.
Vienni, Feb. 2. Prof. Bokaiof the
Klausenburg University, claims to
have discovered an absolute remedy
for hydrophotda. He asserts that the
virus in the wound can be rendered
innocuous by the use of a solution of
chlorine, bromine, sulphurous acid,
j ami pesnianganate of potash with nil
, of eucalyptus.
i Some persons, who' freely admit
the importance of all pursuits that
minister to their Ideas of utility, ex
press only contempt for those which 1
supply the need of the imagination,
the cultivation of the sentiments, the
production of beauty, or the-means
of amusement. They really seem to
think that they are proving their
intellectual depth or moral superiori
ty by boastjng of their utter indiffer
ence to things that interest, cheer,
and inspire multitudes. i
One. of the Lord Chancellors of
England declared in open court that
he would not go across the street to
hear Madame Catalani sing.. Doubt
less ho spoke the truth and yet it
was a truth which good sense should
have taught him rather to conceal as
a personal deficiency than to boast
of. If he had been deaf, ho might
have asked for sympathy, but would
hardly have exulted in his misfort
une, and his inability to appreciate
torn 9 that filled thousands of people
with wonder and rapture could cer
tainly entitle him to no other senti
ment than that of pity. ' : '
So the unwarranted manner in
which persons throw contempt upon
poetry, arc, fiction, and the drama,
simply because they lack the lenti
ments to .which they respond, is
merely a proof of their own deficiency.
Let them modestly keep silence upon
matters of which they can speak only
to expose their ignorance.

Perhaps Only a Superstition.
Walking through a ug garden in
the Aiden district in June, you will
see a strange and almost incomprt
sensible operation being carried on
The trees are by this time covered
with fruit, though the figs are less
than half the size to which they
subsequently attain. The boughs
which bear them are often not more
than a few feet from the ground
One ol the peasants in the garden
takes a basket filled with small green
figs strung loosely on pieces of cord.
Some of these cords will have only
couple ol tigs, and some as many us
six. The workman flings the cords
up into, the branches, on the twigs of
which they are caught, so that every
tree shall be adorned with one ;f
these singular necklaces. It is ban
to guess their purpose. These strung
figs are wild fruit, bitter in taste, and
quite useless as food, but tliey havi
this singular property, that they ar
rest the tendency of other figs to dm
to the ground before they attain ma
turity. Sometimes the crop of these
Capri figs, as they are called, fails,
but so powerful is the purpose they
serve that growers will give as much
as a piastre, or four cents, for each
fig. This price is so high that, as a
rule it will swallow up all the profits
expected from the crop.

"Simply by the initials of their
names. In the first place, you must
remember that about half of the
male iopulation of this country has
been named after presidents of the
United States or candidates for presi
dents, and all you have to do is to
know when these presidenial candi
dates were at the zenith of their pop
ularity. Of course, exceptions must
be made of George Washington and
Andrew Jackson, for people have
not quit naming their boys after
these illustrious men to to this day.
"For Instance, here is the name of
W. H. H. Johnson-William Henry
Harrison was elected president in
183G, consequently Mr. Johnson is
about 33 years old. Here is W. Scott
Smith Winfield Scoot ran for presi

about 37 years old. The next name
on the list is A. L. North Abraham
Lincoln was elected president in 1800
Mr. North is. therefore, about 2S
years old. Now, take the next, M. F

candidate for president in 1S5G ; M.
F. Smathers is therefore, in all proba
