are not thoroughly posted in regard to
this fact aad they are not well informed
s to the luxuries they are raying for
which rightfully should be paid by the
senators themselves. For instance, an
elegant and commodius building is rented
at an enormous price, and is fitted up in
gorgeous suites of rooms for the use of
each indiyidual senator with secretary
and other convenietccs. .Former day
senators managed to give the people bets

people are compelled to pay for. The

ample t afford them all the comforts and

out of them these personal expenses

The New York Herald says that when
the late Judge Bradley took tis seat on
the bench in 1870 by appointment of
President Grant the great constitutional
questions growing out of the war and the
new amendments were just beginning to
loom up. Justice Bradley's intellectual
vigor ana legal grasp brought him to the
front in the consideration of these novel
nd difficult issues. On many of tbem
be voiced the judgment of the court in
opinions marked by force, clearness and
a deep insight into constitutional princi
ples. He has been ciiticissd for his ac
tion in the legal tender rase and notably
his vote in the electorial commission in
1876. On these points opinions will
differ. That his services on the highest
bench of the nation during the nearlv 22
years he sat there are of incalculable
slue will hardly be questioned. Of the
judges wh constituted the court when
be became a member but one (Field) re
mains. With ihiB exception and that of
Harlan, whose accession dates back to
1877. all have been appointed within 10
years. It is virtually a new court enter
ing upon a new era.

VOUNG WOMEN SHOW BUYERS OF

The se'ving machine teacher is nn indis
pensable adjunct of the sewing machine
office. She : invariably a young woman.
You selcl m hear of ber, it is true, unless
you have tiougbt a new machine and want
to learn how to use some of its new and iu

thousand of her in liothnm. "rom fiftei-n

Her wt rk consists in followini; up every

As yet i:o statistics have been gathered

The wwi-ig machine teacher has some
interesting experience in t he rounds of her
work. Siie gets a knowledge of life, miser
able and po.r life usually, and an insight
into the home life of the poor, strange cus
toms and g-nerai human nature that she
eon 11 acquire no other way. It requires a
certain amount of philosophy, too, to make
her a successful teacher. As likely as not
her first assignment will be to a dark and
dreary bac-L room in a tenement house.,
where a poor mother is trying to support
her little tries making clothing for the
stores. Sin-has bought a sewing machine
with newer improvements, with which she
hones to accomplish more.
The sewit.g machine teacher must in all
probability listen to t he whole story. And
if she beat ill sympathetic, and the woman
is unable to keep up her installment and
loses both n:-vv and old machines, the oc
currence is apt to have a depressing effect.
Or she may have- to go to a sweatshop
where every thing is overcrowded and gen
erally disagreeable. Or. again, it is a quiet,
pleasant li tie home nest where a little
woman is anxious to help the strong right
arm by doing her own se w ing at home.
Yet the many contrasts, the heartrend
ing tales and the contact w ith hard, tin
lovely poverty seldom makes the sewing
machine t acher unwomanly or bitter.
She is a j lly, happy, sympathetic wom
an with a irwit well of thankfulness iu
her heart I remise her ow n lot is so much
easier than some ot hers.
Sometime?, she makes good use of her
powers of oliservat ion. auil the results
make startling little stories. For a news

a means of gaining useful kmovle-dge.

"I never read accounts in the newspapers
of the pranks of college boys in 'hazing'
the freshmen," saiel a white haired, rosy
faced old New Yorker in the parlor of a
big athletic club the other night, "but my
mind reverts at once to a hazing scrape I
got myself into in my salad days. IJke all
sophomores, I was particularly intolerant
of freshmen; much more so of course than
"We had been strictly forbidden by the
faculty to do any hazing at all, under pen

with his room, and it seemed to Ik? full of
furniture, against which we stumbled and
over and under which he knocked us in the
darkness with the precision and force of a
triphammer. He seemed to have a cat's
sight and he knew the room thoroughly,
and the way he 'lammed' us was so unex

reckoning in try ing to get out of that in

her fire preiof chemical laboratories and
electrical cxix riuiental halls can hardly lie
surpassed anywhere. The music school,
which grants the degree of Mus. D. to its
graduates, is one of the distinctive features
of the college. It occupies a superbly
equipped building. The walls of the prac

the sounds of church organ, violin, piano,
