ADVICE ABOUT MARRIAGE
Dr. Van De Water's Talk to the Co
lumbia College Boys.
DANGBKS OP 1'RETTY PACES
ILvtr tia Divorco and Probata Courti Are
Fnnusicd with Business Marriages for
Lcvo Aro Said to Bo Successful Moro TJn
Lipp7 Rich Homes than Poor Ones.
TIio subject of Dr. Tan De Water's Tuesday
morning chapel talk to tho Columbia College
boys was "Marriage" Among other thing3
Dr. Van Do Water said:
"Tho great trouble about marriage is that
it is talked about too much end thought aoout
too littlo. Many men givo more attention to
tho selection ot a horso than they do to the
selection ol a wifo. Somo women aro so
thoughtless that they marry 6pocdlly to regret
leisurely. Tailing in love' is a very cxprcs
sivo phrase; it so truthfully describes tho affec
tion that too often terminates in matrimony.
It would bo so mucli better wcro men and
women to walk in love, or run, if you please,
but with eves open, rather than blindly to
Etumblo along and fall in love. There mujt
l somo special provideneo guiding men in
this matter, or there would bo raoro 6orious
blunders than there are.
"Nino out of ten men cannot trace tho
affection that exists between them and their
wives, an affection, I am persuaded, thit ha3
ripened and strengthened with tho process of
the suns, to any earnest thought or deep
consideration. They merely stumbled into
the consciousness that they loved n woman,
and. without much thought of consequence,
they went and told her so.
"Harriet Iteecber Stowe says that 'consan
guinity' is the chief cause of lov e; that, thrown
continually in contact with any one not abso
lutely uncongenial, v ou will fall in love with
her. Whether so or not, wo men aro quite
willing to admit that wo do not give thought
cnougli to this most important subject; that,
considering its suro responsibility and possi
ble consequences, we nro grossly careless in
the selection of a wife.
"Young fellows captured by a pretty face,
a giddy whirl at tho dance, or a possible
inheritance, will marry a most unsuitable girl,
whoso tastes, and habits, and attainments aro
utterly uncongenial, and find when too lato
that n little more thought in tho choice of a
wifo would lia e been so much better for both.
Or old fellows who live alone till they are fifty
or sixty, accumulating a fortune or gaining a
reputation, will, without much thought,
marry some adventurous, scheming widow,
twenty years jounger than themselves, or a
girl scarcely out of her teens, to discover
shortl thariuth a half century of exporlenco
they have done what a foolish boy of twelve
might Lnow better than to do.
"These and similar Instances of thought
less marriages furnish tho diorco and pro
bate courts vv ith most ol ther business. Nev
ertheless, my experience justifies me in sav
ing that thea-t majority of married people
are raoro in lorn than when they married, aro
contented and happy, and would not chango
their lot or their partners for any other. Ono
divorce In a illage makes more talk than all
tho marriages of a year. Tho-e who are
happy make no tumult. For every ono cou
ple unhappily married thcro aro 100 living in
peace and i rosnerity as husband and wife.
1 he-e mako no noise, furnish no food for
comment; they mako true homes; they are
real fathers an 1 mothers; they give us right
eous men and holy women; they rear tho

tK diiiv man Owes to himself, his neighbor,
his ountrv . to manj clibacy is an unnatural
stats in which the finest feelings of human na
ture are never called into action and finds no
occasion for exercise or display.
"My advico is bo in no haste to marry.
Prepare well for life before entering its moct
responsible etat. Do not become engaged
while pursuing collego studies. Think of
marriage as the crown of all your present

"Marry, when you do, for love. Let every
thing else come after this, lie sure jou love;
not think, but know you do! While you
marry only for love, 'see what thou lovest is
lonely.' Never mind what others think; bo'
certain for yourself that tho woman who is to
be y our wife is so admirable and lovely to
you that her face remains the same no mat
ter what changes come. If jou would marry
suitably, marry your equal. Your Inferior
will remain such; jour superior will humiliate
you, even if she is good enough not to tyran
nize over j ou. Marrj the daughter of a'good
mother and j ou can scarcely do wrong. See
that the spirits can blend, lako time to mako
n bargain to Ian 'till death do part.
"Bo not afraid to marry a poor girl. Bo
bravo enough to marry the girl jou loe, re
gardless of her patrimony. I know more un
happy rich people than poor ones. You show
mo ono unhappy couple on account of
straitened circumstances; I'll show j-ou ten
couples with wealth moro unhappy from
other causes. Remember, when marriage be
gins, romanco ends. History, reality, then
commences. Frcpare well for marriage and
what follows paternity. Be sure j ou give to
your wife tho purity you expect to receive
from her. Marry tho woman jou want to
meet in heaven and bo mtimalo with forever.

Life in OUr
Early in August, 1831, the United States
44-guu frigate Potomao, Cupt. John Downes,
lay In New York harbor, tugging away at her
anchor in a half restless, half indolent mood,
as if anxious to get to sea, but was deterred
from making the nocessary exertion by tho
enervating heat of the sun. President Jack
son had recently appointed Martin Van Buren
minister to England, and tho frigate was wait
ing to convey tho future President of the
United States to tho "Tight Littlo Island."
Conscious of tho honor of having a distin
guished passenger (with political influence),
the younger officers of tho ship spent more
time than usual before the mirror, endeavor
ing to givo a martial part to their hair. "They
even got out their uniforms, as if they ex
pected to wear them ovcry day in tho weok,
instead of only once or twica in tho cruise,
when some special ceremony required it.
Tho scale of pay established at tho tlmo of
the war of 1812 allowed our captains only $100
a month with which to maintain tho honor of
the flag nbroad, and Incidentally support a
family. Tho lieutenants got 50 n month.nnd
the midshipmen struggled along on consider
ably less.so that it was not to tie expected that
they could afford tho luxury of a uniform
ov cry day in the week. In tho cruise in which
ho captured tho Macedonian, Cnpt. Stephen
Decatur is descrlbod as "wearing an old straw
hat nnd a plain suit of clothes which made
him look moro liko a farmer than a naval
If tho handsome young officers of the Poto
mao could not make as noble a display as
they might havo desired in the matter of pad
ding, epaulets, and gold lace, they at all ov ents
could devote more than usual attention to
their,, embrjo beards. Tho regulations in
force compelled themtoshao their faces
smooth at least once in so many days, no
matter bow luxuriantly inclined somo of
them might havo been toward whiskers. Tho
officers who were especially prone to run to
hair found tho regulation a stumbling block
to their prido, and no small amount of temrcr
was expended In consequence.
But in view of tho fact that their distin
guished passenger "had a pull." which might
land them in a choice position some dav, tho
officers lathered nnd scraped away at their
chins with moro good grace than could ha'.e
been expected. Moreoer, tho hearts of tiieso
officers warmed toward "Martin," because in
tho war over Peggy O'Neal, "tho pretty,
wKty, saucy, actlvo tavern-keeper's daugh
ter," which nearly wrecked President Jack
son's cabinet, he sided with Teggj- and Peggy
was tho w idow of a naval officer.
The same bustlo and air of expectancy was
notlceablo among the 6aIlors of tho Potomac.
They were busilj' engaged in togging them
selves out in their best rig, polishing their
neat morocco pumps, and going through tho
most approved and latest stj lo of nautical
prinkiag. Somo of the real old salts in the
frigate, however, who affocted to despise the
"innoation of uniforms." nnd whoso sigh for
tho good old daj-s w hen men-o'-wars-men had
their inalienable rights to dress "their own
exclusive tiersons in their own excluslvo
tastes," were not so particular in washingnnd
pressing out their neat nankeen uniforms.
They w ero satisfied with greasing their long
hair and then braiding it down their backs,
with just enough wax in the end to mako it
curl up like a fishhook.
These weio the men who had mado the
American naj' famous. They had taken a
hand in flogging tho parlcj--vous in 1783-1S01,
nnd had downed the yatazhan-armed Turks
in tho fierce hund-to-hand encounters off
Tripoli, and had exterminated hordes of
pirates off the Spanish main. But their
greatest glory was in having been through
tho "late war." In which tho prido of the
mistress of the ocean wa9 taken down a peg
That the distresses of an Atlantic voyaco
might be made as endurable as possible for
their passenger "w ith a pull" nnd his "land-
lubberly" retinuo, asuppiyof hldeou3-looking
easy-chair, such us nov er before had dese
crated tho decks of tho frigate, and heathen-lsb-looUng
trunks, preposterous bundles and
outlandish packages, were piled around in
just the places w here an out-and-out good sea
man would bo most likely to crack his shins
against them. The stewards, also, began to
nssumo a pompous and condescending air
that was entirely bejond their station, while
tho master-at-arms and the quartermasters
were busy hoisting squealing pigs (tied in
bunches by their feet), coops filled with cack
ling hens, and many other delicacies that
might tempt the weak stomachs of the guests.
From "Tho Cha-tisement of tho Quallaliat
toonns." by Edg.ir Stanton Maclay, in Har
per's. l'rof. Harrington Discuses
Certain Signs of Spring.
Tho retreat of Winter before advancing
Spring has so much of poetical nnd practical
Interest that it is worth while to study its do
tails, but in ordcrto do this a definition of the
beginning of Spring must bo adopted. For
this purpose the movement of animals or the
nwakening and development of plants is
sometimes adopted; but, unfortunately, the
return of the sw allows, tho passage of the
wild geee northward, tho movements of
other migratory birds and of hibernating ani
mals, are not invariable accompaniments of
the appearance of Spring, whatever may be
thought of tho infallibility of instinct.
A better criterion would bo tho awakening
of plants, which does not depend on instinct,
but upon phjslcs and physiology; but hero tho
difference in behavior of different species, and
of tho same spocies in different localities,
makes it difficult to decide what phenomenon
of what spocies. and in what place, should bo
selected. Tho English violet takes adv antngo
of every short respite of Winter to open its
buds. The crocus and other plants push up
their flowers through the snow. The swamp
maple develops its leaves early and rapidly,
and most so in warm places and at tho top of
the tree, while tho oaks, the tulip tree,
and tho walnut aro tardy in thus ac
knowledging the arrival of warm weather.
A moro practical criterion for the advent of
Spring can be found in tho temperature on
w hich this advent depends. It is tho .heat
that causes the snows to disappear and physi
ological life to awaken in the plant or to be
come once more active in the animal, nnd it is
tho increasing warmth which persuades tho
migratory birds, who sot the fashion of sea
sonal change of residence long before it was
adopted by mankind, to pass northward to
build their homes. .
Botanists stato that tho temperature of C
degrees Centigrade, or 43.8 degrees Fahren
heit, is that nt which tho protoplasmic con
tents of tho vegetablo cell And the limits of
their activity. When tho temperature falls
below this point the protoplasm becomes inac
tive, though it Is not dead until the full is from
several to manj degrees lower, depending on
tho species of tho plant. When tho tempera
ture riss and reaches this point the proto
plasm awakens, and as it passes aboo 43.8
degrees Fahrenheit the cells begin to grow
The advent of Spring may therefore prop
erly bo considered as taking place at tho ad
vent of the isotherm of 43.S degrees Fahren
heit. But the isotherms of warm weather in
any Spring do not advanco and remain, but,
liko the wavelets of an incoming tide, thev
advanco and again retreat, though nover go
ing back qulto so far as the point from which
they started. Each wavelet makes a distinct
gain on tho beach, and though tho actual
water's edge seems nlwajs advancing and re
treating, the tido itself is steadily advancing.
Tho fluctuations aro superficial, nnd can
be eliminated by the proper arithmetical
treatment. In tho same way tho isotherm of
43.8 degrees, like any other, advances In a
fluctuating way, but nevertheless gains somo
ground at each fluctuation. Theso fluctua
tions can llkowiso bo disposed of by taking
the mean for many jears. Although tho
result will not show tho actual advance in
any ono season, it will bring out tho averago
advent of tho isotherm chosen, and will truth
fully give the general features of this advent.

MR. DOLPH STILL TALKS ON
At 5 O'clock Yesterday His Speech
REMARKS OP THE 0REG0XIAN
He Criticised the Composition of Tree List
and Got a Hard Question to Answer from
Senator Gray on Seasons for Taxing
Newly-Discovered, Natural Wealth.
Senator Dolph, of Oregon, yesterday proved
that he was easily in tho tost of long distanco
talkers in tho Senato, Resuming his tariff
speech bcgun.yestcrday at one o'clock.ho held
the floor at 5 o'clock with tho same vigor and
force as when ho began. Ho talked about
various items in tho tartC bill. At times he
was sarcastic He had many Senators engag
ing him in debate, and tho dissensions
becamo very general ranging from
diamonds to mica and the Income
tax. It was during this portion of the .debate
that 5 o'clock nrrived with soveral Senators
on their feet, all anxious to say something.
Senator Teller, of Colorado was tho flrst
Republican to declare himself or rather to talk
favorably of an incomo tax.
During tho courso of His remarks Mr. Dolph
ridiculed tho action of tho Senato committee
in putting diamonds on tho free list for tho
benellt of worklngmen. Upon Mr. Allen
(Pop., Neb.) asserting that tho duty on pre
cious stones in tho pending bill was 50 per
cent, higher than in tho MeKinley Dill, Mr.
Dolph told Jlr. Allen that ho know nothing
nbout it; that he knew no moro than tho
chairman of the Finance Committee, and ad
vised him to read the bill.
"I know what I am talkiug nbout," Senator
Dolph went on. "Tho Democratic party pro-
f loses to put diamonds en tho free list in tho
nterest of tho workingman."
"Well, I havo no objection to that. All jioor
people should bo entitled to wear diamonds,"
replied Mr. Allen good-naturedlj-.
Mr. Dolph ironically assured hjm that be
had nothing to say against putting diamonds
on the free list. All that lie had said bad been
in praise of that action of the committee, and
tho Senator was putting a falso interpretation
on his remarks. Ho then went on (seeing
that Senator Peffer had just entered the cham
ber), "if the Senator from Kansas instead of
waiting for tho Senato to pass a resolution for
the appointment of u committee on communi
cations In the interest of tho poor iiooplo of
the country and of good order would go out
and meet Coxej's army and read tho pend
ing bill to them and show them that diamonds
w ero on tho free list, lam sure tho army
would disband and go home. It would be
sntislied with frco diamonds and precious
"If the Senator from Oregon will accom-'
pany ns I will undertake the journey," said
Senator Teffer, humorously.
Senator Dolph declined "the invitation, but
called Senator Peffer to witness thut in tho
last few weeks ho had been seeking his (Sen
ator Poller's) protection, and declared that
they had an understanding that when the
army of tho commonweal reached v asulng
ton ho was to bo considered tho Senator s
friend, but ho would not go out to meet tho
nrmj-, or anywhere else, unless tho Senator
from Kansas preceded him.
The incident closod here, and Senator Dolph
continued bis speech. Ifo had not proceeded
very far when Mr. Allen Inquired it he would
yield tho floor to him.
"For what purpose?" asked Mr. Dolph.
"To speak on tho rending bill," replied Mr.
Senator Dolph said ho could not yield for a
speech, but ho would yield if the Senator
from Nebraska had any question to ask touch
ing the subject ho was then discussing.
Senator Allen regretted that Senator Dolph
would not yield, but ho did not pres3 tho
subject, and took his seat. Senator Dolph
then went on with his speech and took up
tho question of paper making and wood
pulp making in tho stato of Oregon, and ap
pealed to the Senate not to destroy this in
dustry of his state.
Senator Graj asked whether he wanted to
lovy tribute on tho stato of Delaware in order
that Oregon might havo a monopoly of tho
"I did not say I wanted to have a monopoly
of any industry for mj-slate," replied Mr.
Dolph. adding: "the Senator was notpajing
attention but Issimplj'trvlng to get into the
Ho went on to saj that Oregon used a great
quantity of goods from Delaware and ho paid
a high tribute to the industry of that state.
Senator Graj thanked him for his compli
mentary words about Delaware and nt the
same time assured him that he had not been
actuated by a desire to "get into tho Record."
The present depressed condition of affairs in
Delaware and other states, he said, was due
to the culmination of thirty vcars of high
protection. We were living under tho high
est prolcctivo laws the country hod ever
known. There had not been asinglo industry
of Delaware benefited by the MeKinley act,
nnd ho predicted that upon the passage of the
pending bill prospects nil over tho country
would brighten. .
Tho Senator from Delaware might preach
that doctrine, said Mr. Dolph, but there were
thousands of worklngmen out of employment
In his state who would convinco him of tho
fallacy of that doctrine.
Senator Gray closed the incident by declar
ing that thej' were out of employment bocauso
tho McKinloy law was in force, and Sen
ator Dolph resumed his speech.
A reference to tho placing of mica on tho
free list gave Mr. Chandler an opportunity to
express his surprise that tho fact that mica
was u southern production had not led to its
protection. "But," said he, "the zeal for
revenue reform, the hostilitv- to the protection
of American industry, tho "desire to subject
tno moorers oi mis country to competition
with tho coolie laborers of India, has struck
down tho duty on mica from the stato of
New Hampshire as well as from North Caro
lina." Mr. Gray asked why mica had been trans
ferred from the free list to tho dutiablo list in
tho MeKinley bill, and was told by Mr. Allison
that it was because of tho dlscoverj-of mica
in North Carolina, when the Senators and
Representatives from that stato had asked for
protection against the mica from India.
"Then,"' said Mr. Gray, "it was for tho pur
pose of levying tnbuto on nil tho rest of tho
country for tho benefit of North Carolina, so
that It would seem to be a misfortune rather
than good fortuno to discov er nny mineral in
the United States."
Ho recalled tho fact that a few years ago a
rumor was started that somo one bad dis
covered a tin mine in tho Black Hills of Mon
tana, and immediately a tribute was levied on
ev cry ono w ho used a tin cup for tho benefit
of tno owner of that tin mine. This reference
to tin drew from Mr. Teller the Inquiry
whether that development of tho tin industry
could not bo obtained moro quickly, cheaply,
and better by paj ing a bounty instead of tax
ing all the people.
Mr. Dolph had not inquired into tho rela
tive advantages of the bounty sjstem and the
tariff duty system and declined to commit
There was somo discussion between Mr.
Dolph nnd Mr. Allen, when Mr. Chandler en
tered the debate with a suggestion that there
was no no;cssity for huny, and as the Sena
tor from Nebraska had shown a commendable
desire to learn something about the tariff
since he had come to tho Senate, ho
thougnt Senator Dolph should answer all of
his questions and satisfy his thirst for in
formation. Mr. Dolph agreed to yield to Senator Allen,
but ndded that next September, when tho ther
mometer registered 100 degrees, when tho
Senato mot at 10 o'clock and held night ses
sions, and when the speeches on tho tariff
wcro gttting prosy, prolix and uninteresting,
it would bo tlmo enough for Senator Allen to
oxhibit impatience, but nt present oil was
harmonj- and good fellowship.
In considering tho incomo tax question a
difference of opinion was discov ered among
tho Republicans. Mr. Dolph had given his
experience in the collecting of tho income tax
in Oregon when it was in force, when not
more than one-tenth of tho tax was collected.
Mr. Teller (Rep., CoL) inquired whether
there was tho same difficulty about collecting
the tax in Enrland. Mr. Dolph said he had
no information from England, but he know
the tax had been evaded in this country and
that people would commit perjury to es
Mr. Teller said that his experience had
baen very different from that of Mr. Dolph.
He did not think it was evaded any moro than
the personal property tax. In Colorado,
where on income tax was in force, there was
Damon's Method of Treatment Sur
prises the World.

capable of doing all with medicines that any

The first American lodgo was instituted at
Baltimore oy tho assemblage of tho required
number of live, who had previously been in
itiated in England. Tho lodge was known
nnd hailed as Washington Lodge, No. 1, and
is in existeneo to-dny. Thomas Wlldev, who
is to-day stj led "tho father of Odd Fellow
ship" in this country, was tho first noblo
grand. Tho organization grew in import
ance, and received tho first warrant ever
granted to n lodge in the United States from
the order in England. The Maryland Grand
Lodgo was formed In due time, and later on
tho Grand Lodge of tho United States, which
Is now known as the Sovereign Grand Lodge.
Tho principles of tho order nro already too
well known to need nny recital here. Its
growth in numerical strength und influence
has been truly marvelous, being to-dny tho
largest beneficent organization in existence.

NO CHANGE IN RULES.
Unlikely Thnt Any Effort Will He .Made to
Prevent Long Winded Speeches.
Although many propositions aro introduced
in tbo Sennto looking to an amendment of tho
rules, nothing has resulted from them. Tho
Senate, which makes up the Committee on
Rules, generally selects the most conservative
members of the body for that committee. At
least. In the present Congress, the majority of
the committee aro wholly opposed to any
changes, nnd tho Republican members are not
likely to assist in adopting new rules which
wouldln any way restrict their privileges and
powers. The proposition submitted by Sen
ator Gray, of Delaware, yosterday, providing
that no Senator shall read a speech or read
extensively from books or papers, has
for its object tho shutting off of what aro
known as long-winded speeches, but moro
especially to cut off speeches which aro sup
posed to bo mado for the express pur
pose of killing time. This matter was
under discussion during tbo extra session
when a silver debate was on, the question
being whether a Senator could have a docu
ment rend at tho clerk's desk. In tho courso
of tho debate Senator Tellertold somethingof
the traditions of debate in that body. He said
that it was nev er intended that a Senator
would present a speech and read it. It was
understood that he should prepare himself,
and that ho ought to do, but the reading of
speeches was a practice that had grown up of
lato years, and was not contemplated when
tho Senato rules allowing entiro freedom of de
bate was flrst inaugurated. The object In pre
venting tho reading of speeches is that whilo a
Senator may bo content to read for hours
without a single Senator listening .md not
moro than two or three in the chamber, ho
would probably not be disposed to talk to tho
same kind of an audience, nnd it is furtherbe
lieved that there would bo very much les3
SDeechmaking. This is nodoubt true, bnt tho
whole matter would probably be debated until
next December beforo nny rules looking to
ward tho closing of debate or any startling in
novations introduced in tho Sonata wero car
The Period for Weaning.
Thoro is no settled period for weaning. In
savago countries children aro sometimes
nursed until they nro 6 years old; with us it
is usually stopped after tho teeth begin to
come, showing that tho child's system is
ready for other nourishment. When there
nro six to eight teeth it is safe to assumo that
tno child should bo completely weaned, but it
is not well to do this suddenly. If the child
is thriving, gaining weight, which is tho best
test for any kind of food, begin by leaving
out one nursing nt night and giving artificial
food, say thin gruel of somo kind, onco a day.
Watch results and increaso tho substitution of
tho meals gradually. As soon as an artificial
food bos been found that does as well for tho
baby ns its natural supply. It is saro to wean
altogether. Tho wholo thing is a matter of
good judgment. There is no differenco be
tween tho sexes in weaning.

A new notion in pincushions is to mako
them flat, tho shape and sizo ot a square en
velope. Tho pins are Inserted at the edgo.
They nro mado of two pieces of cardboard,

then transferred to tho silk and outlined. A
stamp Is put on ono corner; it may be
painted there if ono is clover with n brush, or
a genuine stamp affixed in tlio usual way. A
ribbon loop is attached to ono corner by
which to hang it.

The tendency of prices was downward from

Tho speculation was fairly active for a
