Supreme President Somerby of the Iron Hall, of Baltimore, says that the association has been reorganized and lias 72S,000 iii its treasury. If .the new association is going to have- any tliopj like the experience that the old associa tion had, the time for the members of the order 'to divide that $728,000 in the treasury is now. A most objectionable kind pf poster collecting is that which is said to have been pursued by the agents of some barn-storming theatrical companies - oiit west, who have just been arrested in Cliicago .charged with stealing tfie ad vertising "paper" of well-known com panies, and using it to advertise their own railroad-tie performers.. The plea that they me only victims of the poster fad will hardly help these culprits when they get into the dock. REED RULES THE ROOST. Speaker Reed's miotics are in prime working order. lie muzzled the mem bers of tte .vays and means committee and compelled them to report two bills prepared by him ; oue increasing the Variffon avooI, woolens and lumber to sixty per cent of what ;it was in the McKinley law, and raising the tariff upon everything else, excepting sugar, fifteen per cent above present .rates, and the other providing for the issue of three per cent coin bonds to replenish the gold reserve whenever the secretary of the treasury deems it necessar, and of $50,000,000 in three per cent 3-year treasury certificates, or so much thereof as the secretary of the treasury may need from time to tune. Y,'M," ,, - He muzzled the objecting republicans who wanted the bills submitted to a caucus before being reported to the house, and lastly he muzzled the house and had his bills passed, notwithstand ing that the democrats'did rall . the pro testing they could under, the Reed rules, against the railroading of such import ant legislation through the house with out debate. When one of his own party went to Mr liced -, nud ' asked that a reasonable time be . allowed. ior tiebatc on the bills before thejjiwere passed, Mr lieed dismissed him by saying sharply : "The house isn't a debatiug society.'" In fact, for all practical purposes there is no house. Its powers liave all been usurped by Mi Eeed and its only im portant duties are to obey tili orders. But there arenieither ,llteedr rules nor methods in the senate, to which these bills have now goue, and the country may count upon their being thoroughly debated before they a redacted upon. It is doubtful whether --either of them can pass the senate, atv all,, land certain that neither can get through without being materially amended. - CURRENT COMMENT. It would be just like President ' Cleve land to decline to allow his name to be used in connection w-ith - a third term movement. Partisan's who charge that the war message was a game of politics had better go slow. Whiskey is selling in Chicago now at five cents a drink, "three for a dime,v but the news didn't get " abroad quite soon enough to keep St Louis from getting the republican convention. Lord Salisbury may be blamed for many things, but it isn't right, to hold him responsible for.t tliW pictures printed over his name byt American newspapers. Congressman 'Payne of New York should sue Boss Piatt for breach of promise. He promised Mr Payne the chairmanship of the ways aud means committee of the house. A HEARD IN PASSING.

Spain isn'tj able to whip the smallest part of itself, Cuba will keep the dons too busy to worry about Venezuela. New Haven Union. Enjoyment of the after-dinner speak ing at the New- England society ' dinner in New York on Monday night was ef fectually "killed" by Senator Morgan of Alabama, who talked for more than an hour. But as everybod' knows that Morgan never talks less than one hour on any topic, the committee that invited him must have been evy dull. Hartford Times. .

Union Soldiers Almost famished ForXack of Water Discover a Spring A Confed erate Shot Ended the Struggle For the Sparkling Liquid. From tho first peep of dawn Hooker, on the extreme right, having crossed Antietam creek tho previous evening, had been pounding tho Confederates and getting as good in return, and Mansfield in the center had been seconding Fight ing .Joe's endeavors with varying suc cess, so that it was fully high noon be fore Burnsido on the left received any intimation that his wing of tho army was to hava any greater hare in the controversy than that of interested audi tors. Though there had been some brisk Bkirmishing in f rent of the left, all eyes in that quarter were turned toward the center of the stage, and when it was learned that the gallant Mansfield had gone down in tho conflict there was many a pang of grief, for Mansfield was a hero. While the troops lay massed by bri gade in the open fields and broiling 6un between :the creek and tho low bluff to the east of the bridge, they sought to pro pare themselves for whatever might come by keeping their canteens filled with water. The creek, so near and yet eo far, proved to be a danger line for the occupants of both banks of the stream, for it was almost certain death for either Federals or Confederates to ap proach the stream, so that Burnside's men epeut .their time by reliefs in pro curing tho coveted Jiquid wheresoever it could be found in the rear. Directly eastward from the famous stone bridge, and immediately to the rear of one ef the massed brigades, and scarcely 200 yards distant from the creek, was found by some of the eager searchers a diadem in the shape of a stream cool, pure water pouring from .the face of a slaty embankment of scarce ly more than ten feet in height. During all the past time that this diminutive stream had been making its egress from the bosom ol the earth it had been permitted to sptsead itself out ovqt the adjoining meadow land or find its way to the creek through the shallow morass that icrmed at the base of the insignificant knoll from which it seeped. Never, perhaps, since the creation did such a small trickle of water jump so suddenly into importance and usefulness as did the one in question, for the prac ticed eyes of the water famished Yan kees, "who had learned by their experi ence on the peninsula to smell water afar, followed up the moistened water course to its source, and, having found the head thereof, it was but a matter of a few. minutes till they had a solid stream of the sparkling gem of about one-half inch in . diameter pouring through a trough "which had been im provised from tho bark cf a nearby sap ling. This improved condition of the little stream, becoming known to all the troops lying near by, proved to be the signal for a general riot, for the strug gle for the privilege of holding the can teen under the spout became so boister ous that the officers were compelled to place not only a guard, but a cordon, of troops around it to prevent the contend ing soldiers from murdering each other in their mad endeavor to get just one taste of the coveted prize. All this, too, in the face of the fact that the Johnnies beyond the creek had opened their bat teries and musketry on tho columns then moving in the direction of the bridge, and numerous missiles found their way to a disagreeable proximity to the spring. But just as a semblance of order had been restored tho word was passed to "fall in," and the life giver was left to itself and for tho time for gotten, hut as the brigade advanced by battalio;n the soldier could not refrain from casting a backward glance of re gret at tlje thread of silver dancing in the afternoon sun. Half an hour later tho battle was on in all its fury, and every moment add ed to the. stream of wounded men pour ing backward out of tho line of danger. Those who knew the spring made straightway for it, followed by others, for who of those wrho ever had the ex perience can forget for a moment the terrible condition of a wounded soldier with an empty canteen? If the strife for possession of the spring previous to the advance had been furious, it was now a thousand times worse, for around that bit of moisture surged a maddened, frenzied mass of bleeding humanity in all the conditions of wounds resulting from the fierce battle then raging less than half a mile distant and consequent turmoil. So fierce was the struggle that they de stroyed the spout, and the mad and fam ished men would rush forward if only to get a hand wet. At this supreme moment a Federal battery took a position on the knoll im mediately above the spring and opened on the enemy. This brought a reply from a Confederate battery on the high ground beyond the creek, and about the first gun from the other side settled the contention as to the value of the little stream, for a solid shot struck the em bankment about a foot above the outlet of water, buried itself out of sight and shut off the water as completely as a faucet ever stopped the flow from the nozzle of a hydrant. Notwithstanding the excellent practice of the rebel artil lery, some of the suffering soldiers hov ered about the spot for a time in the hope that the water would find another outlet, but such proved a vain dream indeed, as the writer, 30 days thereaft er, passing that way, sought a sip of the coveted nectar and found the only evidence that n "Siyeam had ever flowed from tho spot to dC the dilapidated E mains of the improvised bark spout.
