Hut n curious nil vcrilsi'iiicut has recently been published upon the programmes of certain Now nrk theatres that seems to bo clearly Mlthlu (ho Inhibition or the statute. If. A. JlAt riiiK, for many years president of tho Louisiana Lottery Company, died n few wciki ngo. It teems Hint his sue iuiir has been appointed. This suc iinr, whom, for purposes of conceal ment, wn may call lr. j.ui.voii:t adver tises while it Is true that he has been np oiuted president of tho Louisiana Lot tery Company, ho still retains tho presi dency of what we may call tho Caribbean I'lieallng nnil Kvtliulling Company, and that all "proposals for supplies, nin I'hliiery, clc. as well ns other binlncss roniimmicntliuis, should bo ntlilrcwcil" as lirntoforr. This is a tolerably trans parent lottery advertisement, and wa hccrfully invoke uou its uutliora and illssemlnutors tho statutory pains and j '('Unities. Our esteemed contemporary, however, strikes us as being at fault when it says that the l'cileral law forbids tho advertise ments of lotteries, etc. That law simply says that newspapers containing such ad vertisements shall not bo carried In tho malls. Papers are still free to publish the lottery advertisements In States where It is not forbidden by local statute. They merely have to abandon the uso of the jmstolllcc In such an event. Vt'odo not see, therefore, how the appearance of tho notice referred to in tho thcatro pro grammes of Now York comes ''within tho inhibition of tho statute," though wo cor dially assent to tho Times' proposition that "the lottery snake is hard to kill." Tin: iiiicmis op Mi:. Cleveland think lie lias surmounted the chief obstacle which lay In his path to tho Whilo House, 'which the same was n Deuced lilg Hill. Tin: 8T.VTEMKST that General Jltr.ra hns nked or will ask for a court-martial to try (Jeneral Cn.uttcEV JIcKkeveb on diaries to be jircferred by himself, has naturally attracted n great deal of atten tion in military circles. Although no defi nite information as to tho nature of Gen tnil Milks' grievance lias transpired, it is mi open secret that he complains of Gen- nil Mi'Kit.veii's having criticized him unfavorably, saying, in effect, that Mii.ei had exaggerated tho Indian troubles sa as to magnify his own services and to pose ns n small frontier Savior after the sub sidence of the excitement. Many pioplc, however, find It difllcult to understand iliy General McK geveii should have been xluglcil out. Nobody so far has claimed to have heard General McKekveii utter uny such criticism, and fow if any will leny that, even It ho did do It, ho did only what hundreds of others wero doing and Mid only what thousands bclleycd and thought. It seems to us that before in volving himself In a fresh controversy, General Miles would do well to justify his action toward Colonel Konsvin of tho Seventh Cavalry. It is tho general im pression just now that ho Inflicted a very harsh and unmerited rebuke upon that gallant ofllccr, and that ho had much bet ter devote what sparo timo ho has to Allowing that he did not Inflict this in justice intentionally. It rERitAi-s is appropriate that tho Gov ernment should be having n chilly time of it these days In Chili. Colonel "William It. Morrison Is tho latest victim of the letter-writing habit.

Wo said: It seems to us quite clear, therefore, that the only question to bo decided is ono if fact. Jt would bo inhuman ami dis graceful to permit tho location near tho IiijMiitnl of anything calculated to harm or distress the sufferers within Its walls. "We aro (uito sum that the baseball people iliemsclves would not wish to do this. There remains, then, only tho micMlon ,f fact. " ' This means, If it means anything, that we advocato (ho location of tho base ball park at any point tho managers may select, so long as no hardship to helpless Miffcrcrs will ensue.

The room which demands most careful attentionjs the sleeping apartment. Bed rooms should bo light, sunny and. spa cious and there should be constant chango of air, a window, either in tho bedroom Itself or In an adjoining room, being partly opened at night. Bobics' clothing should not bo hung up to dry In a bed room, nor should soiled clothes bo kept there. Plants and flowers in largo num bers should not stand In tho bedroom, as thoy exhale carbonic acid gas during tho night. Salt as a tooth-powder Is better than almost any other dentifrice. It keeps thu teeth very whito, tho gums hard and rosy and the breath fresh. Not only for Its lluvor, hut for health's sake, a dish of apple sauco goes with roast pork. In addition may be served ono or, soveral of tho following vegetables: Pota toes, white and sweet, cabbage, ciiull llewcr, Brussels sprouts or spinach, to matoes, turnips, vegetables, oysters, boiled rieo or hominy. To mend china tako a very thick solu tion of gom arabia and water, and stir into it plaster of paris until the mixture becomes a viscous paste. Apply It with a brush to tho fractured edges, and stick them together. In three days tho artlclo cannot be broken In tho samo place. Tho wiiuencss oi mis cement rcnucrs u uouuiy valuable. Whatever vegetables aro chosen too many of tho samo class or flavor should not bo tised at ono dinner. For instanco, onq may uso either cabbage, spinach or cauliflower, but not all three, nor two of them. If hominy is used, rtco should not bo. If beans aio decided upon, do not uso Ieas; neither servo sweet potatoes and souasli at tliosamn time, nor commit tho blunder of serving lettueo, beet groons und chlccnry in tho samo course. Coffee, ns well us tea, should bo made in an earthen liot. Tho' best utensil for making cliocolato in is a widc-monthed porcelain pot, whoro tho chocolate can bo cooked very rapidly and whore a largo surface is exposed. By this method tho oil does not separate from tho chocolate as It docs in it covered dish or when tho ehoeoluto Is cooked at rt low temperature. Pour tho cliocolato In an uncovered china or carthenwaro pitcher and srrvo it with n bowl of whipped cream. Do not bo tempted by n name to buv a so-callod cliocolato pitcher, Thoy ore good for coffeci or oven tea, but cliocolato should nol bo served In a covered pitcher. It ro talus tho heat so well that thoro is no ex cuso for covering it Ilka tea and coffee, Chicago Is finding herself unablo to work her jaws over tho big undertaking sho has biaen off In tho World's Fair, But sho will get her Incisors und molars u posi tion niter a little, and then hiir critwhllo competitors for the big show will witness an act of deglutition entirely consistent with the reputation of Chicago business men for push, rush and swallow. JW- T!tI7Xi:W I.10N. Senator Gorman's nbillly to "get there with both feel" cannot bo Questioned. St. Lotili lat-J)Ujntch. In the llchtagalnstthoFoTCo bill a great opportunity was given to Senator Arthur P. Gorman. Great as It was Senator Gor man was equal to ii.Jlnffalo Courier. Since tho nanio of Senator Gorman has been set to Presidential music tho Mug wump press has discovered that, after all, his efforts against tho l'orco bill did not amount to anything. Iljlttmore American, The greatest work In politics, nnd In other lines of human endeavor, is accom plished by quiet planning nnd quiet offort. It requires just such a man as Senator Gorman to meet nnd surprise tho advo cates of the Forco bill. Many n great crisis In politics is very llko a gamo of chess. Talk in such cases Is vain. Blus ter will not win. Vigilance, coolness nud rcticcncn commnnd tho situation, and just at the rigiit moment tho quiet mnu poscscd of these qualities cries "Checkl" and wins tho game. Atlanta Comtltiitton. Senator Gorninn is getting his full re ward for his work. Among Democrats In all parts of tho country ho Is looked upon as tho man who did moro than anybody else to defeat tho Force bill. And ho has even been spoken nf in connection with tho Presidency, If the timo of tho meet ing of tho Nation Democratic Convention wero near nt hand ho would bo a pretty strong candidate for tho Presidential nom ination. His parly will not forget his services. It may not reward him with n Presidential nomination, but It will al ways rcgnrd him as ono of its ablest lead ers. Savannah A'cira. Senator Gorman wns tho chosen leader of tho Democratic side and. backed by tho nbsoluto confidence) f his colleagues, fought ns probably no other leader would hiivo'fought. In many respects ho is not tho equal of Mr. Cleveland or of Mr. Car lisle, but In the attributes of such leader ship as was intrusted to him ho was easily tho superior of cither. AVhat tlio future may havo In store for him, whether tho Presidency or a perpetuation in tho Sen ate, he will always havo a warm placo In tho hearts of American peoplo for tho record ho mado in tho Fifty-first Con gress. Xa?ivillc American. If Mr. Gorman wero n Now Yorker, or even a resident of Indiana, tho chief ob jection from a political standpoint to his candidacy would bo removed. Then there nro a host of other considerations to keep him out of tho Held. Not tho least im portant of these Is tho fact that tho party of tho entire country has about mado up its mind to bestow tho nomination upon Mr. Clovcland. Mr. Gorman can grace fully emulate Governor Hill's conduct lu tho matter of preparing tho Democratic shin for smooth sailing next year. The unities would bo completed by tho dele gate from Maryland seconding tho motion of tho delegate from Now York that Grovcr Cleveland bo nominated for the Presidency of the United States by ao elamation. Omaha "WorUUIltmUl. Gorman of Maryland lias suddenly be come ono of tho most conspicuous Demo crats in thocoiintry. When those diaboli cal Siamese twins, tho Forco bill and tho cloture resolution, started on their passage through tho Senate things looked rather blue. It was a gamo of chess in which every move on hot h sides was watched with breathless attention. Gorman quietly re marked "Checkl" and tho astonished Re publicans saw that tho opposition was playing u very strong game. At last the decisive moment arrived. Somo inde pendent Republicans, who cared more for country than for party, camo round to the Democratic side, and then young Woleott mado tho decisivo move. Gorman looked the pieces over and simply said, "Check mate, gentlemen." It was tho finest bltof tactics in this generation and tho gamo was won by pure skill, without tho excite ment of a single boisterous display. And the country is grateful to Gorman, to his fellow Democrats, and to the ltcpubllcans who had pluck enough to defy tho re venges of Harrison and do their duty. Ai-io York Herald. CU1IREKT PRESS OPINION. Attention Congressmen. from the A'ta York Tribune, It Is not tho business of this Congress to lie down and die before its timo because the peoplo have elected a different ono.

New York, Feb. 0. Tho Sun says: Mr. Grlmtsof Georgia Is ono of tho bachelor members of tho Houso of Representa tives, whoso ago is not given In tho "Congressional Directory." Ho is pop ular, eloquent, supcrsntlous nnd un lucky. Ho was defeated last fall by n man unheard of until tho Farmers' Alli ance took him up. In tho Fiftieth Con gress Mr. Grimes had n bill passed, appro priating SIOO.OOO for n publto building In Columbus, Ga. The bill reached tho Wlilto Houso tho day Mr. Cleveland vetoed flip Allentown, Fa., bill, as n punishment of Congressman Snowdcn for his volo against tlio Mills Tariff bill. To bo consistent. Mr. Cleveland vetoed tho Columbus bill. Mr. Grimes succeeded In having tho bill passed through both Houses again tills session, and It went to the Whlto Houso n week ngo. On Friday nftemoon Mr. Grimes re reived n nolo from Prlvato Secretary Hal ford that tho President would consider tlio Columbus bill on Saturday morning, and that perhaps It would bo advisable for him to call nt the Mansion early. Since tho bill reached tho Whilo House Mr. Grimes has been exceedingly nervous about Its fate. On Saturday morning his first net was to seek a clairvoyant. Ilo simply asked that his future might bo unfolded. Tho clairvoyant said that ho would soon como into possession of n largo and hand somo brick building, which would yield him a neat income. A smllo enlightened his handsomo features, for in tho largo brick building ho Imagined ho saw tho Columbus Postofllco. Then tho clairvoy ant branched oft into talk about n pretty brunctto of tho crcolo typo ho would soon meet, nnd, with whom ho would becomo fascinated. Tho admiration would bo mutual, and within a year thoy would bo married. Thcro was a moment's silence. Then, with a look of expectation and an attempt at n smile, Mr. Grimes asked his llrst direct question: "Enough of this. Will the President sign my Public Building bill?" The clairvoyant looked him in the eyes just for a moment; then, covering her faco with her hands, remained silent forn while. Finally sho jumped to her feet, and exclaimed dramatically: "I sco three lariro letters!1' "What are thcyf" asked tho Georgian in tones or excitement anil expectancy. "Yes y-e-s," whispered tlio clalr voyant. Mr. Grimes throw n S3 bill on tho tablo. rushed out, jumped into a, cab and drove rapidly to tho Whlto House. Ho was ushered into Mr. Harrison's privatoofllcc, and found him with tho Columbus bill under consideration. Mr. Grimes, feeling hopeful and enthusiastic, argued earnestly anil eloquently that tho bill might be signed or elso allowed to becemo ttlaw without tho President's approval. "1 don't sco how I can do cither," re plied the President. "Congress has been too extravagant iu bestowing public buildings." Then ho went on to speak of tho un pleasant duty of vetoing bills of this char acter, and courteously bado tho Georgian adlou. Mr. Grimes has lost faith in clairvoyants. PARAGRAPHIC.

When tho cold wovo rolled down upon Chicago from Manitoba Monday morning It brought untold misery In its wake. Bad ns was tho condition of tho poor be fore the intenso cold mado It worse. No one who hns not mado a personal tour of the homes of tlio poverty Btrickon can form any Idea of tho fearful suffering caucd by the sudden chango lu the tem iierature. Tho poor had been able to en dure tlio moderate cold without n lire, but tho sudden change of thirty degrees In tlio temperature within a fow hours caused Indescribable suffering. Flro becamo n posltlvo necessity, and to secure warmth tho suffers were ready to resort to any thing. Pieces of wood nnd bits of coal were picked up on tho streets, and font time sufficed to relievo tho wants of tho unfor tunnies. But tho supply wns too scant, and the army of searchers too largo for this means of obtaining fuel to last, and in a short timo tho homes of the poor wero ns cheerless as over, while by contrast tho cold was more intense. Then, In somo instances, furniture was broken up and tlio bits of wood mado to burn ns longni possible. Clothing was pawned or sold, and every polblomcnns of raising money resorted to. But in spite of tlicso efforts the suffering was pitiable. To add to tho misery caused by tho cold was tho Im mense amount of sickness prevalent. While tho winter has been an unusu ally open one, it has also been an unusu ally hard ono for the poor. Novcr beforo were there so many unemployed work men In tho city nnd novcr before was sickness so common in tho families of tlicso men. Tho recent stringency In tho money market caused many factories nnd mills to shutdown, and thus thousands of men were thrown out of work, lu ad dition to tills tho usuul floating popula tion of tho city has been greatly Increased, owing to tho fact that tho World's Fair is to como here. Knowing this, tho work men have flocked to thocity from all parts of tho country, in hones that tlio fair would causo an unusual boom and that work would be plenty and men In demand nt pood wages. Tho influx of working peoplo over stocked the labor market and tho men re main in thocity, unablo to get away and ready to do any kind of labor for enough money to secure them a bed or a cheap mcnl. Thus It happens that the suffering is greater in Chicago than during any previous year. Open winters aro usually regarded as especially good for tho poor. Tho present ono has proved anything but such. AVhilo up to this timo thcro has been little cold weather tho season has been an unhealthy one. The frequent and sudden changes in tho temperature, together with tho heavy fall of rain and snow, hnvc caused much sickness. It was well nigh impossible for peoplo possessed of good homes and warm clothing to avoid sovcro colds. Whilo tho danger to tho well-to-do was great, It was ten times greater to tho poor, who wore forced to tramp through the strectsin tho mud and sleet in tlio unceasing but un successful search for work. So it is that Chicago to-day contains more destitute but deserving persons that ever before. OVER THE NUTS AND WINE.
