Washington, Feb. 22d, 1885.
Congress is now doing nothing or
nearly nothing. Botn Houses meet day
ly have prayer go through with rou
tine business, and talk and talk, but say
nothing.There are plenty of debates.re
plies to insinuations, and objections,
but no important action. The only
question that can be carried without a
dissenting voice, is that of adjournment.
Although Congressmen are notorious
ly derelict in the'matter of being pre
sent at the opening prayer, until last
Wednesday morning, I do not remem
ber ever to have heard the chaplain in
voke the devine blessing upon the deli
berations of the body when only one
Senator was his audience, besides the
President of the Senate. Fortunately
the chaplains salary is safely arranged
whether or not there is respectful at-
tendance at his prayers. The senator
referred to was Mr. Jonas of Louisiana,
who is a Hebrew. The backward state
of tne appropriation bills, and the im
pending deadlocks over some of them
make it probable that the Forty-ninth
Congress will be called together in the
early spring. Last week it was a matter
that Congressmen considered improba
ble, but they have since realized that
an extra session may become a necessi
ty. Each side charges the other with
pursuing an obstructive course in order
to bring about the result. The Re
publicans have nothing to gain by it,
and Mr. Reed, of Maine, one of the
most prominent Republican leaders in
the House says he has heard only one
Republican member express a desire to
remain at the Capitol during the sum
mer. When the question was referred
to in the Senate, it evoked an energetic
protest from Senator Ingalls, who it is
understood, voiced the views of the Re
publicans in that body. In the House
Mr. Bayne charged the Democrats with
an effort to force an extra session, so as
to have an excuse for remaining in
Washington where they can make dir
ect personal appeals to the new Presi
Cabinet speculations have not been
so rife for the past day or two, though
the subject has not lost interest. Mr.
Cleveland is now.understood to be mak
ing hisselections from fifteen, names,
among which are those that have been
repeatedly mentioned for Cabinet. The
Democrats express the hope that he
will deceide upon his Cabinet and an
noance it very soon. The chosen ones
can then make necessary preparations
and tho rejected ones will have time to
recover from their disapointment before
Mr. Cleveland arrives here. There will
be some keen disappointments. The
large number of aspirants for Cabinet
honors makes that unavoidable.
President Arthur will hold one more
public reception before the close of his
term, and it will occur late this week or
during the early part of next, when so
many visitors will be in the city to at
tend the ceremonies of the Washington
In making provision for the accommo
dation of the thousands who are coming
to theMnauguration, due arrangements
have been made for the hundreds of
pick-pockets and thieves who are ex.
pected. Several days since I dropped in
to a detective's office where I found
them engaged with about a bushel of
photographs. These pictures represen
ted the crooks of various cities, and
had been sent by the polices of those ci
ties. There were several copies of each
picture, and a rogues gallery was pre
pared for each precinct, so that the of
ficers could study the faces and arrest
the originals if they met them on the
streets. They were photographs of
pick-pockets principally, but the house
breakers, the confidence man, the bunco
man, tho monte man, and every other
specics'of criminal were there.
Difficulties and delays are connected
with preparation of the ball room for
the Cleveland inauguration festivities,
which forcibly recall similar difficulties
associated with the second inaugural
ball of Gen. Grant. An immence frame
building was projected for that occasion
in Judiciary Square, a short distance
only from the new pension building in
which the coming ball will be held. As
the fourth of March drew near, and de
cays in completion of the building arose,
the anxiety of the managers became in
tense. Extra forces of men were em
ployed day, night and Sunday. Finally,
when the building was finished, the
heating arrangements were found in
adepuate, and gas jets were resorted to
which were kept burning day and night.
The cold was severe on that eventful
evening, and in spite of all that oould
be done, there was intence suffering at
the ball. Gentlemeu danced in their
overcoats, and the ladies in seal skin
jackets and furs. A number of persons
lost their lives in consequence of cold
contracted there. Fortunately, the
Cleveland ball room can be made warm
whatever kind of winds the iies of
March mav brinsr.

Railway Accidents and Color Blind-
It has not been the duty of the writer
to investigate cases of accident which
might have been caused by defects of
sight, but he has been assured by offi
cials that a solution will hereafter be
found in them for those hitherto insolu
ble mysteries where men, otherwise
credible, have so flatly contradicted
themselves and the circumstances of
the case. By one prominent officer he
was told that, being upon a train at
night, delayed by some slight accident,
he himself took a red lantern, and, go
ing a proper distance back, placed him
self in the way of an on-coming tram,
but, finding his light not observed, ho
was compelled to dash it into the cab
to attract the engineer's attention, and
arrest him in hisprogress to a collision.
Under the examination of another en
gineer, his superior officer being pres
ent and convinced of his marked color
blindness remarked that, but a short
time before, the man had run into the
rear of a train properly protected by a
red-light in the hands of a brakeman
some distance in the rear, that the
most careful investigation resulted only
in the suspension of the brakeman for
not having gone far enough back, but
that he was not satisfied that the color
blindm ss of the engineer had been the
real cause of the accident. Some
slight or minor accidents recently led
to the discovery that another engineer
had by some oversight not been tested
in his division, and this led to his ex
amination and detection there, and to
his conviction by the writer as a color
blind. Still another case now presents
itself. An engineer some time ago ran
over and killed a brakeman, holding a
danger signal on the track in front of
his engine, and no satisfactory explana
tion could then be given but the divi
sion examiner predicted that he would
probably bo found color-blind, and on
his examination this proved to be the
case Dr. William Thomson %n Popu

Spreading the Gospel in Arkansas.
A methodist preacher in one of the
mountain districts of Arkansas one day
happened upon a family to whom the
light ot the Gospel had come only
through a glass darkly, and the biblical
knowledge of the household was very
limited. He at once set about posting
the members by reading to them from
the Bible. He turned to the story of
the Prodigal Son, and was reading to a
very attentive audienoe, until he came
to that portion narrating the killing of
the fatted calf.

any exception we may find to the rule
must seem very remarkable, especially
when it is a bird and a spider on terms
of the closest friendship, and actually
partners in house-building. The bird
is the purple sun-bird named by natur
alists Nectarinia Asiattca. It is com
mon in many parts of India, where it
flits among the trees in gorgeous garbs
of deep purple-blue, flashing green,
gold and yellow.
At the nest-building time, the sun
bird searches the woods until it finds
the largo shining web of a certain kind
of spider. This it proceeds forthwith
to appropriate without further cere
mony, though we can well imagine
that there has been some understand
ing between Messrs. Spider & Sun
The web is generally spun between
two stout limbs, and upon this web the
bird begins to place all sorts of rub
bish, such as bits of grass orfiber,and
pieces of paper and cloth picked up or
stolen from some neighboring camp,
At first the spider must be somewhat
astonished at the eapacity of its net for
catching such strange flies. But curi
ously enough, as fast as the bird places
these objects upon the web, the spider
secures them with its silk, spinning in
dustriously and assisting its friend as
much as possible. Finally, when the
materials have accumulated until they
reach the limb, they are fastened to it,
and bound over and over, first by the
bird and afterward by the spider. Now
the nest begins to assume a definite
shape in appearance like a bottle, a
flask, or a dome the grass and twigs
being generally wound in and out by
the bird and then covered by the silk of
the spider, both bird and insect work
ing harmoniously, until they have
made a perfect dome-shaped nest hang
ing in the midst of the web, partly sup
ported by it and partly hanging" from
the limb. In some nests an entrance is
left at the bottom but usually it is at
one side near the upper end, with a
little platform or awning built out over
it by the bird, to keep out the rain.
The nest would now naturally bo a
very conspicuous object but the spi
ders work is not yet done. It con
tinues to spin its silken web around the
nest, carrying the threads from one part
to another, inward and outward, for*
ward and back, until finally, after spin
ning miles and miles of silk, the nest is
completely hidden behind a screen of
Here, together, the partners live the
spider rearing its young on the outside,
and the sun-bird caring for its eggs and
young within. In this queer partner
ship the spider is, evidently, not the
loser, as it certainly gains peace and
irotection-from' the presence of its
friend.C. F. Holder in St.
