Washington, Oct. 1. When the

will have become the longest by twenty-four
hours in America's history,
the longest preceding session was
That of 1850, the year of the Missouri

noon of September 30 Constructively
the session of 1868 following the im
peachment proceedings against Pres
ident Johnson was longer, the adjourn
ment sine die having taken place

act any business.

pried apart the crating of the outer
wall, tied a blanket to one of the irons
of the window, and let themselves

St. Louis, Oct. i. It was generally
expected that Judge Brewer would
name the receiver of the Missouri,
Kansas and Texas railroad to day at
Leavenworth, Kansas, but he has not
done so. In this connection it has
been learned that there Is a probabili
ty of delay in the proceeding, owing
to the loss of important papers bear
ing upon the case by Gen. McCook,
attorney for the Missouri, Kansas and
Texas bondholders in the Mercantile
Turst company. Judge Brewer de
clined to communicate his opinion
and the facts in the case to Judge Par
dee, of the United States court in Tex
as before acting. He, therefore, wrote
Judge Pardee a letter, bundled up a
number ot papers and gave them to
Gen. McCook for delivery. Valuable
documents were placed in the general's
valise ondit is missing. The loss of
the papers may delay matters, but for

WEARERS OF GLASS EYES.
Hon Artlflrlnl 'Ejrs Are Mmlo nmt Who

Upward of 6,000 Now Yorkers wear
artillclal ejes, and of this goodly number
tho mnjorfty aro ladles, whoso solo ambi
tion to btiiKTbedo tho works of tho Creator
is centered hi tho liopo of becoming at
tractive. Artillclal eyes may bo classi
fied into two distinct kinds, viz., glass
nud composition. Until recently tlioso
who had tho inittfoi tuno to Ioso nn cyo
liavo provided themselves with nrtlflcial
ones of glass to liido tho deformity. Eye

cyo contains without doubt mora fact
Oculists and opticians say that thou
sands who mtiko uso of tills valuable and
impoitant artitico show no ovidenco ex
cept to nn expert of ony impaired sight.
Tho glass eyes which aro manufactured
in this country nro really made of glass.
They ha o many defects, among which
may bo mentioned their liability to bo
broken, und tho hard pressuro of their
edges upon tho fleshy parts. A fall or
blow u ill often break them, or they will
sometimes cruel; spontaneously, und in
addition to tho loss of tho artillclal eye,
tho patient's eyelids uro frequently
u ouiulcd. This accounts for tho fact of
children bcim; larely provided with glass
ej es on account of them not being nblo
to handle them without danger.
The composition ejo, which isinado of
n substance resembling celluloid, is now
in ttnlveisal demand. It is much worn
by ladies and children, as it provents a
distmlion of tho face. After tho human

trifling ocular defotmity.
