Neat Neckwear. Neat is the word neat.
Not alone Neckwear, but all the little be
longings of Gentlemen's Dress. Neat is the
word. There is a great deal of nonsense
r.broad about highness of style. WbaleTcr
of truth there is in it is in Mmple neatness.
But people diOVr about matter of taste in
dress, just as they differ about matters of
taste in food.
There is a process of education going on in
the civilized world that nobody speaks of.
People are growing out of flashy, fiery tastes
into delicate tastes in every sense. There are
stages of growth and development from total
depravity up. Neatness is the highest yet
come to the race; and somehow neatness in
Man's is different from neatness in Woman's
dress. The best of all words in both is neat
ness. Twenty-two feet of show case to the right
of west entrance shows our stock in Neckwear
neatness at accommodating prices. One ase
shows a medley of quarter Scarl Ties; another

angry father to his son, "that you drank
nothing but a class or two of beer.
You have been drinking whisky; I can

the young man, "it was whi.iky that I
drank, not beer." "Well, you shouldn't
have tried to deceive me, you young

yourself." "1 am ashamed of myself.

would known whisky from beer."

The House then went into Committee ot
the Whole on the pension bill, Mr. Rogers
(Arkansas) in the chair.
Mr. J. D. Taylor, of Ohio, attacked tba

pay, and characterized it as the prsveyard
of all pension legislation.
Mr. Warner, of Ohio, replied in vindication
of the action of the Committee.
Iu course of further debate, Mr. Keifer
having the floor, he was interrupted several
times by Mr. Warner.
Mr. Keifer declined to yield, and said that
it was very unfair for a gentleman irho bad
consumed nearly an hour in vindicating him
self and his Committee to insist on interro
gating other speakers.
Mr. Warner replied that he had not con
sumed as much time in vindicating himself
as the gentleman Irom Ohio bad spent last
session in attempting to vindicate himself.
Mr. Keifer asked the Chair to have a good
deal of forbearance toward the gentleman from
Ohio, because it was constitutional with him
In discussion of the bill Mr. Keifer entered
his protest against the whole system of pen
sion claim agents, and exptassed his disap
proval of the proposed reduction of pension
agents from 18 to 12.
The bill having been read fdr amendment,
Mr. Kverhart offered a proviso that all appli
cants for pensions shall be presumed to have
had no disability at the time of enlistment,
but each presumption may be rebutted.
Mr. Sogers of Arkansas offered an f mend
ment providing that no agent shall receive
any fee for bis service in pension cases until
after the allowance of the claim; that all fees
shall be paid by pension agents, and that
such fees shall be ten dollars, except in cases
of special written contracts filed in the pen
sion office, when a tee of $25 may be con
tracted for. A violation of this provision is
punishable with a fine and imprisonment.

The House resumed consideration of
the inter-State Commerce bill, taking
up the motion submitted by O'Neill, of Penn
sylvania, to strike out the section prohibiting
railroad co-npanies from charging more for
short than a long haul.
Townshend inquired of Reagan as to the
time to be occupied in further consideration
of the bill, but Reagan, not hearing the ques
tion, O'Xeill volunteered the inclination that
it would consume three weeks longer.
U'.S'eill then spoke in support of his mo
tion. He could not see how it wa3 possible
to oblige the railroads to carry out the idea
contained in the section.

Among the petitions presented was one by
Plumb, from the Oaklahomt settlers, who set
forth that the land they occupy has been
long since bought from the Indians by the
United States and paid for; that the United
States did not expect or intend the Indians
should again occupy the land, and petitioners
therefore see no reason why they should
not be allowed to remain in
the home established for tliemselvts and fam
ilies. Tbey protest agaiust the cruelty of
their removal, and say they would not have
been disturbed but lor the great influence of
wealthy and powerful cattle owners, who do
not themselves pretend to have any title to
the lands, but who use them for grazing cat
tle. The iietitioncrs add that they have gone
to Oklahoma to stay, with their plows and
axes, and that thousands of their friends ex
pect to go there, and pray Congress to with
draw the military forces, and instead take
early steps to organize the territory of Okla
homa into a State.
In presenting the petition, Plumb said
that, although these settlers may be guilty of
technical violation of the law, as the law
was inUrpreted by tbe Attorney General, yet
Congress had already Baid that the
lands in question should not be again
occupied by the Indians, and it seemed to
him that tbe time bad come when Congress
should say yeas or nay on the question of
the occupacy of thesa lands by white settlers

Important Letter froni Grant.
New Vohk, January 7. It would seem
that the effort to raise a fund to pay off the
mortgage upon General Grant's personal ef
fects has beer, summarily stopped by the
General himself. lbe Mail and Express will
this afternoon publish the following charac
teristic letter to Cyrus W. Field, New York
Januarv, Gth, 1885.
My Deae Sir Tb.ror.gli the press and
otherwise I learn that you with a few other
friends of mine are engaged in raising a sub
scription for ray benefit. I appreciate both
the motive and the friendship which have
dictated this course on your pnrt, but on
mature reflection, I regard it as due to my
self and family o decline this proffered
generosity. I regret that I did not make
this known ecrlier. Very truly yours,
U. S. Grant.

unfaltering persistence, matchless military
skill and untiring energy supplied to a mil
lion of American citizens in federal uniforms
the one supreme need of victorious leader
ship, and who many times, in a single day's
work, saved to the North uncounted millions
of treasure from imminent wrecK, not to
mention infinitely more precious possessions,
will not allow private liberality to be urged
in his behalf.
It was impossible for Grant to say what he
felt obliged to say in this note without
biinging to a crisis the painful situation in
which he silently suffered these long months,
during which time the sympathies of tbe peo
ple were unfaltering. Grateful at heart, he
had the guidance of no definite idea as to
what needed to be done, what could be done,
or what should be done.
Tbe Mail and Express then asksr What
shall now be done? and continues as follows:
What butthe one straight-forward, legitimate,
adequate method, becoming tbe Government
of the United States, itself the proudest mon
ument ot Grant's achievements. The title
and rank created for him as a recognition
of bis services should be restored to him by
common consent. To this point events that
we cannot remember without pain and some
self-reproach have brought us. Let Grant's
lost days be his best days and be prolonged
by the action of the nation he did so much

One day tho police, whilo making a
search, really had Olga Liubatovich in
their grasp. A friend, distancing tho
gendarmes by a few moments, had
merely only time to rush breathlessly
up tho stairs, dash into tho room where
sho was and exclaim: "Save yourself!
the police!" when the polico were al
ready surrounding the house. Olga
had not even time to put on her bonnet
Just as sho was she rushed to the back
stairs, and hurried down at full speed.
Fortunately the street door was notyet
guarded by the gendarmes, and she
was able to enter a little shop on the
ground floor. She had only 20 kopecks
in her pocket having been unable, in
her haste, to get any money. But this
did not troublo her. For 15 kopecks
sho bought a cotton handkerchief, and
fastened it round her head in the stylo
adopted by coquettish servant-girls.
With the 5 kopecks remaining she
bought some nuts and left the shop
eating them, in such a quiet and inno
cent manner that the detachment of
police, which meanwhile had advanced
and surrounded the houso on that side,
let her pass without even asking her
who she was, although the description
of her was well known, for her photo
graph had been distributed to all the
agents, and the polico have always
strict orders to let no ono who may
arouse tho slightest suspicion leave a
houso which they have surrounded.
This was not the only time that sho
slipped liko an eel through the fingers
of the police. Sho was inexhaustible
in expedients, in stratagems, and in
cunning, which she always had at her
command at such times; and with all
this she maintained her serious and se
vere aspect, so that she seemed utter
ly incapable of lending herself to de
ceit or simulation. Perhaps she did not
think, but acted upon instinct rather
than reflection, andthat was why sho
could meet every danger with tho
