Washington, Dec. 10. "Now that Dave

Stewart, of Nevada, "their bill looking to
the repeal of the law regarding the pur
chase of silver should be labeled 'An act
to precipitate a financial crisis.' Such will

Acquitted of the Kirst Charge,
CrsciNNATI, Dec 10. In secret session
the Cincinnati presbytery has been for two
days considering the first charge against
Professor Preserved Smith. None of those
interested will say what the result has been,

Aire. Meredith was made chairman of the that of assertins that a clenrvman m:.v
committee. The members discussed the
applications received, but made no allot
ments of space. It was found that the de
mand for room was as great as in the main
bnildings and that more than a week
would be required to properly consider the
Juries to Vxamiae Kxhibita.
The committee on rnlns, ;f which Mrs.
W. Newton Lynch, of West Virginia, is
chairman, adopted a number of rule fr
the woman's building. Mrs. Mensdith,
Mrs. (starkweather, Mrs. Ryan. Mrs. Per
kins, and Mrs. bnepard were present. The
moat important action of Uie committee
was the decision to allow Mrs. Palmer to
elect juries to examine ail exhibits offered.
This resolution was adopted: "There snail
e a committee of experts appointed by the
president of the board of lady managers,
whose dories shall be to make
final decision upon the merit of articles
for which application for space has been
made in the woman's building, and no ar
ticle shall be installed by the director of
the woman's building which baa not been
appro. d by this committee of experts."
Mrs. Palmer was also authorized to ap
point a director of toe woman's building.
This ollicial will occupy the same relation
toward the building as a department chief,
except that sire vriii not select the exhbits
from the list of applications.
Education to Have a Home.
The educnUonul forcea of the United
""a tea are now sure of enough room to
.sake a creditable exhibit at the World's
fair. The executive committee and the
board of directors, which for months has
held hack the money for another building
at Jackson Park, :,aa voted $120,000 for that
purpose, TLe plans for the new building
were approved a week ago. and Chief
Bumbam has advertised for bids. This
new buifdinp w-ill not be used for the edu
cational exhibit, however. The main
luilding, manufacturers hall, will shelter
the educational display. Professor Put
nam's ethnological exhibit will be .-emovrd
fronim nnufnet urers hall to the new bu'.'.d
ing and the educational exhibit will till e
tbe place in manufacturers hall reserv d
for President Putnam. This change is
advan'ngeous for both exhibits.

Art with TThlch Many of Us
Lumen taul y TTn famil ar.
Wnch has been sn id abont the art of con
ferring favors with pnch sweet gracious
nrss that the favor is doubled thereby.
There is another art concerning which
we have seen no mention, and that is the
srtof receiving fa vors so graciously that
the giver becomes the debtor.
A few dayB ago 've saw two little girl's
receiving some pr .3ents which bad been
brought to them from the East Indies.
The. ornaments were valuable, but so un
usual in fashion and color that the chil
dren could not be expected to properly ap
preciate them. Yt t one child by her man
ner of acceptance displayed an unusual
share of the gift of gracionsness. The
other was evidehtl r disappointed and her
thanks were cold and lifeless.
When the two cl ildren left the room the
first ran out witl joyous step, carrying
her trinkets in upl fted hands and crying
nut, "Oh, see what Aunt Mary has brought
me all the way from India the India
that's on the mao, and where the Taj

Mostly ornaments banging by her side; her
tep was slow, her countenance sullen, and
one could but exp ;ct the words that left
her lips almost bel ire the door had closed
behind her, "I st ould think Aunt Mary
might have founc something nicer than
tnat to oring such a long way."
Through life tl ese children will carry
their differences t f character, but proper
tuition might do something for the latter

session of all, bu;, natural ungraciousness

favorable commei to upon the gifts of an

npon those of persons who are present, or
U they do not a low displeasure will at
least display the I .bsence of pleasure. The

girls said afterws rd to one who wu Rnnir-

BrTghe, sweet ens position, aiways rraay to

Katy's was naturally much the same.
Their mothers are so different. Julia's
mother says she has made it a life rule to
never look behind a gift for its motive, its
value to herself, or its cost to the giver;
that the fact that any one chooses to give
her anything lays her under but one obli
gation, and that is to receive it graciously.
She takes it for granted that no g.-ft is
offered her for any purpose save to give
ber pleasure. Therefore it always does
give her pleasure, and she shows it. I have
known her to receive with charming grace,
and to wear with a courage worthy of John
Rogers of fiery memory, a really horrible
green and yellow shawl, because she would
not wound the sensibilities of the poor
woman who brought it to heT from Ger
many as a love gift in return for many and
some rather costly kindnesses.
"'She has done whnt she could,' said my
sister-in-law, looking ruefully upon the
warring colors. I cou td wish that she bad
done nothing, but that would not have
given her the pleasure that the bestowal
of this has done."
To gniciously receive intended favors,
even where they are not such in reality, is
incuiulH-nt upon ail. It is a part, of the
"give and take" necessity of life. It ia
also, on higher grout) Is, a manifest Chris
tian duty. Harper's B;izar.
THE COMPACT FAITHFULLY KEPT.
A Story of William Henry Harrison and
Dr. John Scott.
Fom the fact that the maiden name of
the late wife of President Harrison was
Scctt, and that that name has been a Chris
tian one in the Harrison family for three
generations, there is a popular impression
that the president and Mrs. Harrison wera
distantly connected by ties of blood as well
as by the closer relations!.;;) of man and
wife. Though a natural cor:ci'.'.sioii, this
belief is incorrect. There having b.-en no
consanguinity between President and 7rn.
Harrison, the way in which the Scott
name came to be so freely used as a Chris
tian name in the Harrison family is for
more than one reason of interest.
The late Mrs. Harrison was a lineal de
scendant of Robert Scott, a member of the
Scottish parliament before tho union of
the crowns. This Robert Scott was an old
Covenanter hero, who lived in the latter
part of the Sixteenth centnry, and fought
at the battle of BoJhanee Briggs for the
covenant and the crown. He opposed the
union of the crowns during the reign of
Queen Anne, because of the ignoring of the
Scottish crown and name in the then new
parliament of Great Britain. For this,
with others deemed guilty of the same of
fense, he was immured in the Tower of
London under penalty of losing his head,
but was released by an amnet-ty of George
I, who waa brought over from Hanover to
take the throne by virtue of being a de
scendant of the Stuarts. After Robert
Scott's release, in disgust, with his n.it.ive
country, in company of a friend, the Earl
of Bel haven, be emigrated to the north of
Ireland, and from there, in 1725, his oldest
son, John, came to America and became
tbe founder of the family in this country.
In the Revolutionary war the Pennsylva
nia Scot ts, as might have been expected
from their lineage, were prominently iden
tified with the struggle for independence,
and it was no less on Recount of distin
guished services on the part of her ances
try than because she was the wife of the
president of the United States that the late
Mrs. Harrison was elected first president
of the Society of the Danghters of the
After the independence of the colonies
was assured, three brothers of the Penn
sylvania Scotts, seeking their fortunes in
the then far southwest, settle in Ken
tucky. One of these brothers was Dr. John
Scott, between whom and William Henry
Harrison, afterward ninth president of the
United States, a romantic friendship a
love passing that of brothers existed. In
their youth, and prior to the marriage of
either, they had made a compact that their
loyalty to each other should be perpetuated.
In their offspring tliat the eldest son of
William Henry Harrison should be named
Scott, and that the eldest son of John Scott
should be named Harrison.
The compact was faithfully observed.
William Henry Harrison married a daugh
ter of John Cleves Symmes, and his oldest
son was duly called Scott Harrison, and
his son was named Benjamin Harrison.
John Scott also met his matrimonial fate,
aud when he became the father of a son
the child was named Harrison, and was in
his day one of the earlier eminent physi
cians of Illinois.
It seems a curious circumstance that a
memtier of the family from whom many
years afterward and many miles distant
from its original dwelling place Benjamin
Harrison chose a wife should have been in
strumental in introducing into his family
as a Christian n-itne her surname of Scott.
Babbae and Ills Machine,
Mr. Babbage had readied hisanecdotace,
was in the mood to le communicative, and
my friend, Miss Kinglake, claiming the
privilege of age, asked without reserve
such questions as induced our host to be
autobiographical, ne told us that not
only had he crippled his private fortune by
his devotion to his calculating machine,
but that for this idol of his brain he had
given up all pleasures and comforts of do
mestic life. He married early, but his
wife died while he was a young man.
With an amount of feeling that I had
never associated with a philosopher who
wore the armor of cynicism, be pathetically
lamented the dreary isolation of his lot,
for of course," said he, "fond as I am of
domestic life I should have married again
if it had not been for my machine."
He spoke of his mother on this memora
ble evening, repeating to us ber reply when
it became a question whether he should
make further outlay respecting the ma
chine, which had already cost ids private
purse 20,000. The old lady said with a
large mindedness rare in our thrifty sex:
"My dear son, you have a great object in
view worthy of your ambition. My advice
is, pursue it, even if it should oblige you
to live on bread and cheese." Mrs. Crosse

An Enticing Welsh Word.
The Listener once knew some' excellent
Welsh people, who insisted that no lan
guage in the world ia so free from hard
words as Welsh. They cited the word

that Welsh words are unpronounceable.
This fascinating word is prono(unced ex
actly as if it were spelled kooro. and it
means beer. To bear a Welsbfnany pro
