About thlrtr-Hve years ago a little boy
wa giVM a quarter of a dollar for spending
money. As be walked dowa the street, vary
happy, hs met with an oldw boy and showed
It to him, saying aa he did so: "See what my
good papa gave me to spend." Tha older
hoy knocked it out of the little fellow hand,
ana u-bed It up and ran away with it. The
little boy was almost heartbroken, but when
be went home crying and told about It, his
mother gave blm auotbar quarter. Thismol
lifled him, but ha never fufirava thai older
boy. Tbe war came on, and tlie ohler boy was
given commission in th army, whila tha
kttla one, who wa too young to enlut, re
mained at home.
After the war the younger bov became a
clerk in the war department. Within tha
past flftera years tbe older boy, who had bs
coim a lawyer and an orator, annoanoed
himself as a candidate fur tha Vnited States
senate, and be bad a large following. It
looked aa though he might be elected. But
one morning tbe newspera In many por
tions of tti country, and especially those of
his own state, piibbsliml a statement to tha
erTert that theanili.Ute had been dismissed
from tha army for cowardice and other que.
tiimable conduct. The lawyer dented tha
charge, and extract from tbe records of the
war dopartment were published, showing
that the charge wa true, Ha was not elect
ed. After his defeat was accomplished he re
ceived a letter postmarked Washington. D.
C, of which tbe following is an exact copy;
"Do you remember tbe day you outraged a
little toy's ftfelingi and almost broke bu
heart by stealing a quarter from biuif That
deed coat you a a at In tbe senate. " Wash
Haases Itullt by the City.
In lookins about among the poorest por
tions of th city 1 saw that a wise and active
sanitary authority had caused many old
rookeries to be pulled down, and that their
sites had been effectively cleared. Naturally
this destruction means tbe destruction of so
many abiding pla-vs for a certain number of
human heinir. and these latter, being turned
out of one quarter, miwt necessarily seek
lodgment elRwe -re.
But here again the progressiva spirit of
Liverpool municipal administration baa as
serted itself. I fouud that the city govern
ment had erected a number of large model
dwelling house for working people. These
building are constructed in a most substan
tial style, and they are let off in suit of two,
three and four rooms at very low rente. They
are comfortable and clean, and ample sani
tary provision Is inade for the itrotectioa of
the health of tbe tenants. Most person are
somewhat familiar with the scheme of the
Pee. body buildiugs in London. Tbe Peabodv
scheme baa been so successful that companies
nave oeen formed for toe purpose of coo
strurtiiifr workmen's dwellings In various
parts of tbe metropolis, and providing house
accommodation at very low rents. But this
work has not been undertaken through mo
tive of pure philanthropy. It is, after ail.
a matter of speculation, aa these companies
are understood to pay dividends of not V
than 5 per cent per annum, and I have heard
of on that paye 8 per cent. Cor. Boston

Th Art of rartngraphy.
The early maps used by Professor Horsford
are partly French, and this, with the remark
able display of maps at tbe Paris exposition,
and the great work undertaken by the
French bookseller, Hatcbette, leads in to
say a word slx.ut map makini;, or "cartogra
phy." aa the French call It. The ageof Louis
AlV, which produced so mui-h else, gave an
impulse to map making, and early In the last
century tlie great atlas of D Auville, which
was forty years In making, was tbe first an
cestor of Innumerable maps since published.
France also, under the Bourbons, made tbe
first Important topographical survey, under
the lead of Casina de Fleury, who was en
gaged on it fnmi 174-1 to ITsi, and bis maps
were used by Napoleon and Wellington in

great publisher, Portbea, at Clot ha, employ

Peterniaim. and the rival Berlin publisher,
Kiepert, have for fifty year held away In
map making. Ilacbette, In tbe day of the
second Napoleon, undertook to break down
the le-rman monopoly in this art and to re

Miss Moore arose from her seat and advanced
to the altar. She threw off a handsome seal

threw her purse at him, and, as Miss Moore
is known to be wealthy, it very likely con

Moore out of the church. She eras taken
back to the hotel, and her relatives were

A DELICATE TASK.

Hard Bow to Hoe A Regular Two
Horn ed Dilemma The Canadian Pacific
Gets aa Entrance Into Chicago Over
Cbicaoo, Dec 18. The meeting yesterday
of the Inter-rjtate Commerce Railway associ
ation to consider the membership of tha
Union Pacific and Northwestern railway in
tbe association was attended by every one of
the twenty-three lines member of the asso
ciation, except the St. Louis and Ban Fran
Cisco. The charge was made that the Union
Pacific and Northwestern had violated the
agreement of th association in making
the clone traflio contract under which they
are now doing business. The members of
these two roads argued that their traffic
agreement was in no way contrary to the
apirit or letter of the association agreement,
but failed to produce an Impression on the
The Matter To lie Investigated.
Tbe sentiment wa apparently unanimous
agaiust theui. Both yieMed to the inevita
ble, however, and voted with all the other
lines iu favor of the following:
"Resolved, That tha matter be referred to
the chairman of tbe association for investi
gation, and for decision as to whether the
charge that the agreement has been violated
is true; and that he report tbe result of bis
investigation to tbe presidents."
Has a Difficult Task Before Hint.
Chairman Walker w ill report at the Jan
nary meeting of the president of the asso
ciation in New York. His task is the most
ielicate he has yet had to perform in his
office as head of the association. Charles
Francis Adams, president of the Union Pa
ritic, is father of tbe combination of
which Mr. Walker is chairman, and
Marvin Hughitt, president of the
Northwestern, preside.! at the meeting
which finally formed the association after
Mr. Adams had left it in disgust and started
for Boston. Chairman Walker then, in de
ciding against tbe Union Pacific and North
western, would decide against the two most
prominent members in the association.
Should he decide in favor of them he would
have twenty-one objecting liues to recon
cile. A not Time In Prospect.
The outlook for tbe association is not a
rosy one. The new York meeting would
have been sufficiently hot without this addi
tional firebrand. Only the most careful pi
loting can keep it clear from the breakers.
No student of the western railroad situation
believes the association will be broken up,
as it is the only means left by which east
ern capitalists keep the western roads up to
even the semblance of maintaining rates.
The association, it is claimed, is absolutely
necessary to preserve the conllil.-nca of east
ern investor in western railroad securities,
and for that reason alone, outside of its in
trinsic value to the members, will undoubt
edly be continued. The members are al
ready preparing for the struggle sure to
corne at the New York meeting in January.
Canadian Pacific Goes to Chicago.
MontrsaL, Dec. 18. The Canadian Pacific
railway late last night announced that it
had signed an agreement with the Wabash
railway by the terms of which the Canadian
Pacific road is to gain an entrance into Chi
cago over the tracks of the Wabash system.
Freight traffic commences in the course of
few weeks, but passenger trains w ill not be
gin running until next June, when, it is un
derstood, tbe Canadian line will put in a
service which for accommodation and com
fort will be superior to any of the routes at
present between here and Chicago.
