Mr. Ilinkley presented a miaorily report.
It was a sort of protest against tiie upnro-
pnution of any money to pay for rirs armed
force which had been called out in viola
tion, as he thought, of public policy and
personal liberty. Following this he de
livered a master speech In favor of the
minority report or protest which he de
sired printed and sent with the bills lor
second reading. A motion was made to
lay the minority report on the table. This
caused a lively scene. Some members
insisted that it was a protest and entitled to
be s-prcud on the journal without other ac
tion. The motion to table was lost. The
paper was finally referred to the appropria

I RON TIIK DEFICIENCY BILL TIIK ANTI
CHINLHE HILL DON PIATT WALKED OVER
BY HILLY M'oARRARAX KTC.
, Washington, February 20. The discus
sion over the deficiency bill in the senate
was of a heated character and caused one
of the must exciting debates of the session.
The speecli of Senator Bayard was regarded
as one of his finest efforts, in which
he was followed by Senator Vorhees,
who scored the Republicans merci
lessly for their efforts to load the bill
with appropriations for money . expended
states that were clearly Democratic for the
Republican party. His speech, though
short, and made without any preparation
was regarded as one of his must brilliant
efforts. The bill passed by a strict party

are already meneuvering for the chairman
ship of the most important committees in
the reorganization of the somite.
The pressure brought to bear upon the
president by both the advocates and the
opponents of the anti-Chinese bill increases
daily, and the petitions show almost a
solid East against a solid West in this mat
ter, but there is little doubt but that the
president will veto the bill.
A DOUBTl-TL HILL.
There is no probability of the legislative
and executive appropriation bill going
through the senate, nor is it at all likely
that the conference committee can recon
cile the differences between the house and
sc:.,k growing out of the repeal of the
electiin) law, as neither branch of congress
seems disposed to yield in the matter.
The nomination of Colonel Metcalfe, for
appraiser of merchandise at St. Louis, by
tiie president, gives great satisfaction to the
entire state delegation in Congress, and the
appointment is considered one of the best
that could have been made. Colonel Met
calfe has, during his term in Congress, made
an excellent record, although he h:us labor
ed under many cmbarrassne tits, growing
out of a two years' contest for his seat,
which has just ended byu unanimous re
port of theeommitteo in bis favor.

eating the kind of snake and its lensrth
When it is bought the dealer sells it for
what he purchased it. Xo guarantee in
given that tho snake is alive, .and there is
no telling that the snake does livo until Use
box is unpacked. When this snake of mine
was unpacked it iumoed wildlv from tli
box, and it was some time betore we could
secure it. It still has its teeth anil tanmi

Then it sheds itj coat. Its feeding time
was this week. 1 give it live pigeons. All
I do is to put them in the. glass case. The
snake watches its chance and crushes the
life out of the pigeoii ngainst the sides of
the glass. This suake is modest in its way
and won't do much killing if anybody
stands near to watch. After the oiireou is
crushed the snake swallows it whole, feath

has the pigeon's fcet pointing toward iU

From five to seven pigeons make a meal
When the snake once commences to swali
low the pigeon it won't stop, 110 matter how
many people me near it. Atter it has
eaten enough it will lie stil I for nearly
three months, scarcely ever moving. They
have a good time of it in their own way.
All they want is plenty to eat at tho proper
time, and the snake is all right. It shed,
its coat with even- meal, or, in other words,
gets a new suit aliout four times a year.
That's more than a good, many get, and it
don't cost the snake anything. Just now
its skin is as soft and glossy as black velvet.
When it sheds its coat I sometimes help to
take the old skin off. When its feeding
times comes around it becomes lively and
angry. It is as thick as a stove pipe, and
weighs nearly a hundred pounds. I will
keep the snake here until we start
on the road next season."
The Tiai: way to invigorate. Tho
true way to invigora'.c a feeble system 13 to
infuse activity into the operations of tlm
stomach, that wondrous alembic in which
the lood is transmuted into the constit
uent.; of blood, the chief clemenf of our
vitality. Hostet tor's Stomach Bitters, be
cause it accomplishes this end, is grcatif
to bo preferred to many so called tonic,
useful indeed as appetizers, but inopcratie,
sterling cordial, while it invigorates the
stomach, healthfully stimulates the liver,
bowels, and kidneys, ensuring the cscaps
through the regular channels of clleto .and
useless nutter thrown off by the system,
which is thus purified as well as .invigor
ated by it. Its tonic influence is soon
made manifest by an increase of vital
energy and a more active and regular dis
charge of every physical function, and it
has the further effect of rendering the
system unassailable by malarial epidemics
WHY NOT STOP THIS?
The cash value of an Italian hoy has been
set in Boston at $80. hen the relatives of a
certain boy sought to redeem him from
servitude, his padrone demanded that as
the price of him. The Herald (Boston)
says the number of such children in that
city is great, and has heavily increased,
owing to the severe laws enacted in this
state and in Pennsylvania. Some of the
children were purchased in Italy of their
parents or of persons claiming to be their
parents, while others where stolen or kid
napped from their homes or on tho streets.
They :.re now employed as bootblacks, beg
gars, and street musicians, and are cruelly
punished when their earnings are not sunt
dent to satisfv their employes. The story
is related of a certain child, guilty of no
other offense except that of earning 25 cents
instead ot 50, who was stripped and beaten
with a leather strap until the tendon of his
knee was lacerated and his flesh was cut to
the bone, and that in that condition ho wan
lashed to I he chimney on the root, exposed
to the keen host of a winters niglit.
SCKI KKINO will exhibit its presence by
the cries of the baby, and should be remov

Is free from Opium. I'rie'i 25 cents. '
We fully agree with dipt. E. McGuire
