A Wild Break in the Senate
The Koek Island state smaa Again
DUilncuishes Himself by Xak
lDg a Lndir rou Blnoder.
Rock Island is achieving a nice re put a
tioa at Springfield through the conduct
of its republican representatives there
What, with Payne's attempted wit and
bufTonery and Crawford's worse than
torn fool igncrance. the Twenty-first
dis trict is certainly gaining notoriety that
is in no sense enviable. In consideration
of the fact that these two political dolls
have dashed to the earth any hope that
might be entertained of accomplishing
anything In tbe way of legislation
through their efforts, it is a fortunate
thing indeed that the district has a bal
ance wheel ia the person of the demo
cratic representative. George W. Vinton.
The Chicago Herald of yesterday thus de
scribes the latest break on the part of the
freak, which, through the instrumentality
of the republican party, is occupying a
seat in the senate. The republican paity
ought to rejoice and feel proud of a man
When the senate convened today at 5
o'clock, the tranquility was interrupted
by a serious jar between Senators Hunt
and Crawford, of Rock Island. Good,
old fashioned cuss words content the
simple-minded farmer on ordinary occa
sions, but Chairman Hunt, of fcbe senate
agricultural committee, had no use for
tbtm today. While Chaplain Wood of
fered up bis poetical invocation Chair
man Hunt held sweet communion with
his conscience and resumed his seat at
peace with himseir and the world.
There were only a baker's dozen of sena
tors present, and the most active antici
pation could not have forseen any such
disturbance as suddenly agitated the vi
cinity of Crawford and Hunt. Mr.
Crawford arose and presented a resolu
tion so quietly that even his neighbor
Hunt did not hear him, and the sound of
the growing grass outside sounded dis
tinctly in the silent chamber. The reso
lution was as follows:
Whskeas. Senate bill No. 13. being a
bill for an act to regulate the charges of
stock yards, etc.. was introduced in this
senate on the 8:h day of January last,
read the first time and referred to the
committee on agriculture; and
Whereas. The said committee has up
to tbe present time refused to take any
actioc upon the same; and
Whereas. The session is now drawing
near final adjournment, and it is neces
sary that the same should be immediately
reported back to the senate in order to
have the same thoroughly considered;
therefore, be it
Resolved, That the committee on agri
culture, to which said bill was referred,
be and is hereby discharged from the
furtt'er consideration of said bill, and is
hereby instructed to return it to the sen
ate forthwith, and for the further action
of the senate.
Senator Hunt koked in astonishment
at Senator Crawford. Then he ctisd:
"What in are you driving at?" Sen
ator Crawford smiled. When the senate
adjourned Senator Crawford came over
to the irate chairman and asked him tbe
cause of bis apparent anger. "You will
first tell me what is the cause of your
resolution." exclaimed Senator Hunt. "I
placed your bill witn tbe other two before
the committee in the hands of a sub
committee at ycur request and made you
tbe chairman of it. The bills have never
been beard from since. You have those
bills in your hands and I am waiting for
your report, and what in the world do
you mean by this public accusation of
Senator Crawford said he did not
know that he was chairman. "Didn't I
appoint you first?" shouted Senator Hunt.
"Yes does that make me chairman?"
President Ray was called and explained
to Senator Crawford that he was chair
man of the sub committee. The vehe
ment eloquence of Senator Hunt con
vicced Senator Crawford that the resolu
tion was no joke and he promised to
withdraw it in the morning.
Owing to the facf that more or less
danger is likely to be entailed in conse
quence of the putting in of the new iron
girders at Rock Island bridge, acting
Commandant Lyons as issued the follow
ing notice to the public:
Rock Island Arsenal, April 14 Be
tween the hours of 7 a. m. and 12 m. and
1 and 6 p. m. traffic over the Rock Isl
and bridge will be attended bv more or
less danger, owing to the work of replac
ing slie floor beams of the railroad deck;
horses that would be apt to become
frightened by the noise of hammering
over head should not be used. There
will be an extra guard at the bridge, but
even with this precaution, people who
own fractious horses should not permit
them to cross the bridge while these re
pairs are in progress. Besides this, there
will always be danger from the dropping
of heavy tools. The government will
assume no responsibility for any damage
which mav occur to any one using the
bridge. Respectfully, etc.,

tVhnt an American Ctrl Needs.
What the American girl needs most is
good health. If she has that she is blessed
far beyond those who have accomplish
ments by the score. She should, above all
things elw, bey allowed to grow up with her
womanly instincts -unimpaired, for npon
them, rather than upon her training, will
her happiuess and success in life depend ,
Let her nurse dolls, make clothes for them,
build play houses, make mud pies and
romp with the boys. As she grows np en
courage her to make clothes for herself as
well as for her dolls, and to bake pies of
dough instead of mud. If she shows a taste
for needlework don't discourage her, be
came her knowledge will not detract from
her social qualities. If of a domestic turn
encourage her in it by allowinzhor to hare
charge of certain branches ot housework.
If music is her taste afford her every op
portunity for becoming proficient. Pitts

How Children Shake Hands.
Speaking of signs of gentle breeding
makes me think how well it is to teach &
child to shake hands. Some children
when addressed by their parents' friends
look up frankly anil give an honest little
pawto bo clasped in the bigger hand as
though it was a pleasure to le recognized,
while others shyly hang their heads and
stretch out a limp apology for a hand ia
return. Which form of greeting is the
more attractive need not be pointed out. I
know a bright little chap, an only child,
whom it is a pleasure to meet, because he
always shakes hands as though he really
meant it, and he felt you were as much his
friend as tianugh eight years old like him
self. But his name is Paul, and who ever
heard of a Paul who was no; frank and
what the world calls "a little gentleman?'
It is good to cultivate a habit of swift de
cision about trifles. Into the life of each
one of us a multitude; of small affairs come
daily to be Retried, and too long cousidera
tipn of any one of them is not only a waste
of time, but encourages a vacillation in
compatible with true strength of charac
ter. An irresolute man one who does not
know his own mind is unpleasant to con
template, uncomfortable to live with, and
his infirmity of purpose apparently makes
him a most unhappy individual to himself.
Wo can give our children no better prep
aration for the serious duties of life than a
practice of quick determination in little
things. Even should the child decide
wrongly at first, forcing him to abide by
his choice will do much toward making
him wiser on the next occasion. House
wife. Veal Sausages.
To any one who has a dislike for pork, as
many do, veal sausages are often very ac
ceptable. Take a pint of minced veal left
from a roast or raw meat chopped fine; add
a large tablespoonful of butter, a half tea
spoonful of salt, a very scant teaspoonf ul
of sage and half a teaspoon fill of summei
savory. Mind the sausage meat into little
round balls with the white of an egg. Add
a tablespoonful of water to the yolk of an
egg, and dip each ball into it and fry them
till very thoroughly browned in butter in
an iron spider. New York Tribune.
Where Women Are Tattooed.
In London there is a man who follows
the business 01 tattooing. The majority of
his patients are men who have designs of a
naval character pricked into their skin,
but there are also a great many women
who employ his art. if it maybe termed
such. With women the decoration is usu
ally a bee, a butterfly, a spray of flowers
or a monogram. These ornaments are
worn inside the wrist, so that they mav be
hidden by the glove, if necessary. London
Most students and women who are trou
bled with insomnia are ds-speptic, and they
should therefore eat before going to bed,
having put aside work entirely at least an
hour before. If they are not hungry they
shonld simply be instructed to eat, and if
they are hungry they should eat whatever
they want. A glass of milk and a biscuit
is sometimes ail that can be taken at first,
