It was rather an eluborato meal, aud Mrs. Morton designated what It should be. Clearly tho epicurean ond of tho new Administration will bo tho Vlce-Prcsldcntial cud. Of course tho stream of visitors that went up tho clovator to the Morton apart ments, though no less prominent socially or politically than that to the Harrison rooms, attracted less attention, becauso thoro was no speculation as to the Influcuco oi cacn visit on mo uauinct.

At her suggestion tho bed that has occupied tho back parlor behind tho room In which "I.ljo" has made his office was taken down, and what was beforo a bed-room Is being transformed Into an offico-room. Mrs. Harrison looks fresher than she did yesterday, and a couplo of day' quiet seem to havo benefitted both the General and Mrs. Harrison Immensely. The lobby of tho hotel looked liko a nn ttonal convention this morning as far as the faces of the men sitting about was con cerned.

Ho went up Vermont uvenuo to Iowa Circle, around the circle nnd back down Thirteenth street. Hut ft few people saw tho General when ho went out, ho was so quiet about It, and probably not half tho people who saw tho whlto-bearded man, with his overcoat tinned up about his cars, knew that ho was tho Pu'Sldcntclcet.

It Is como safe, and exceeds my expectation. I will tako an early op portunity of paying the cost of it.

It Is probablo that tho cultivation of tho ramlo plant In Georgia will shortly be at tempted on a largo scale. Several well knowii gentlemen In PlUsburg, Pa., have organized a company under a charter nnd purchased a tract of laud lu Georgia. In our latltudo thrco crops of stems a year can be harvested, and It Is thought that tho manufacture will bo In full blast as soon as tho bulldlugs and machinery can bo put up. Tho cotton belt Is also tho ramlo bait, and is moro cxtcuslvo In this country than any where else In tho world. Tho culturu of the plant Is not expensive, and only the cost of separating tho flbro has heretofore stood In tho way of Its development, Tho Pittsburgcrs have secured a machine called a dccortlcator that will separate tho fibre cheaper than It can bo douo In China, and with this machlno tho voxed problem of ramlo manufacturing will bo settled. This plant has been used for ages In China and other Eastern countries lu the manufacture of a great variety ot fabrics, some as lino aud brilliant as silk, Tho woven material has been an article of commerce for cen turies, and In Luropols used as a substitute for silk. Atlanta Constitution, The ltrmcily for Unhappy Marrlngo, Says tho llrilish Jfrdicnt Journal; "Tho remedy for unhappy marriages seems to us to llo not In weakening the stringency of tho bond, but providing that It shall bo entered into with an adequate kuowlcdgo of all tho conditions attached to It and willingness to submit to them. For this somo amount ot physiological teaching Is Indispensable, and there need bo no difficulty In Imparting It without tho slightest damage to Innocent minds. Wo aro llrmly convinced that If uulons wcro arranged In accordanco with well understood scientific principles more often than they now arc, wo should lu less ot tho unliapplucss or failure of rlage."
