About one man out of two of those who en listed in the late war are reported as receiving pensions, exclusive of the de pendents of deceased soldiers. On the first of July, 1875. the number of pensioners was 23,821,and the increase within the ten years, next there after was 110,304; while there is no ex penditure of public funds which the peo ple more cheerfully approve than that which is made in recognition of the services of our soldiers living and dead, the sentiment underlying the subject should not be vitiated by the introduc tion of any fraudulant practices. There fore it is fully as important that the rolls should be cleared of all these who fey frauds have Becured a place thereon, as that meritorious claims should be speedily examined and adjusted. The reforms in the methods of doing the businees of the bureau, which have late ly been inaugurated promise better re sults in both these directions. TATBNTS. There were 2,978 applications pending for patents the first day of July, 1884, and 5,780 on the same date in the 1885. There has been considerable improve ment made in the prompt determining of applications, and a constant relief to expectant inventors. A number of BUggestions and recommendations are contained in the report of the commis sioner of patents which are entitled to the consideration of congreES. In theterriiory of Utah the law of the United States passed for the sup pression of polygamy has been energet ically and faithfully execute1 during the past year, with measurably good results. A number of convictions have been secured for unlawful co-habitation, and in some cases pleas of guilty have been entered and slight punishment imposed upon a promise that the offense would not again be committed. THE MORMON QUESTION. In the territory of Utah the law of the United States passed for the suppression of polygamy has been energetically and faithfully execufed during the past year, with measurably good results. A number of convictions have been secured for unlawful cohabitation, and in some cases pleas of guilty have been entered and slight punishment imposed, upon a promise that the offense would not be committed again. The Utah commissioners express the opinion, based upon such information as they are able to obtain, that but few polygamous marriages have taken place in the territory during the last year. They further report, that while there cannot be found upon the registration lists of voters, the name of a man, actually guilty of polygamy, and while none of that clas3 are holding office, yet, at the last election in the territory, all the officers elected, except in one county, were men, though not actually living in the practice of polygamy, sub scribe to the doctrine of revelation, a law unto all higher and more binding than any human law, local or natural. Thus is the strange spectacle presented of a committee protected by a republican form of government to which they own allegiance, sustaining by their suffrages a principle and a belief which sets at naught that obligation of the absolute existence to the law of the land which lies at the foundation of the republican institutious. The strength and the per petuity and the destiny of the nation rests upon our hmeB established by the law of God guarded by parental care, regulated by parental authority and sanctified by parental love. Theee are not the homes of poligamy. The mothers of our land who rule the nation as they would their own charac ters, and who guide the action of their son's liveB according to God's holy ordi nances. Each secure and happy in the exclusive love of their children shed the warmest light of true womanhood un perverted and unpolluted upon all with in their pure and wholesome family cir cle. These are not the cheerless, crush ed and unwomanly mothers of polygamy. The fathers of our families are the best citizens of the republic. Wife and chil dren are the sources of patriotism, and perfect conjugal affection begets devotion to country. The man who is undefiled by plural marriage, is surrounded in his single home with his wife and children, has a stake in the country, which inspires him with respect for its laws and courage for its defense. There is no feature of this practice, or the Bystem which sanc tions it, which is not opposed to all that is of value in our institutions. There should be no relaxation in the firm but just execution of the law now in operation, and I should be glad to approve such further discreet legislation as will rid the country of this blot upon its fair name, since the people upholding polygamy in our territories are rein forced by immigration from other lands. I recommend that a law be passed to prevent the importation of Mormons into the country." THE AGRICULTURAL DEPARTMENT. Our agriculturists have but a slight personal representation in the councils of the nation, and are generally content with humbler duties of citizenship, and willing to trust to the bounty of nature for the reward of their labor. But the magnitude and value of this industry is appreciated when the statement is made .that of our total annual exports, more than three-fourths are the products of agriculture; and of our total population, nearly one-half are exclusively engaged in that occupation. Tho department of agriculture wa9 created for the purpose of acquiring and diffusing among the people useful infor mation respecting the subjects it has in charge and aiding in the cause of intelligent and progressive agriculture. By the collection of statia ticsjby testing the value and usefulness of new seeds and plants; the distribution of such as are found desirable among the agriculturists; theBe, powers and duties with which this department is invested, are ef the utmost irrmortance: and if wisely exercised, must be of benefit to the country. In the improvement of the condition of the people in every station, the amelioration of that of the agriculturist surely should not be neglected. The instrumentality established in aid of the farmers of the land should not only be equipped for the accomplishment of its purposes, but those for whose benefit it has been adopted, should be encouraged to avail themselves fully of its advant ages. DISEASED MEAT. The proMbition of the importation into this country of certain of our ani mals and other products, "based upon the suspicion that the heplth is endangered in their use and consumption, suggests the importance of such precautions for the protection of our stock of all kinds against disease as will disarm suspicion of danger, and cause the removal of such . an injurious prohibition. If the laws now in operation " " sufficient to accoamiab. this protection. I recommend their amendment to meet the necessities ot the situation. I commend to ,the consideration of OBgrese,' the-eoggestione contained in the report of the commissioner of agri culture calculated to increase the value and efficacy of this department. The re port of the civil service commission which will be submitted, contains an account of the manner in which the civil service has been executed during the ast-year and much valuable infor mation on this important subject. , CIVIL SERVICE. I am inclined to think there is no sen timent more general in the minds of the people of our country, than that in favor of the enforcement of the civil service law. In its present condition, the law regulates only part of the sub ordinates in public positions throughout the country. It applies the test of fitness to applicants for these places by means of a competitive examination, and gives large discretion to the commissioners as to the character of the examination and many other matters connected with its execution. Thus the rules and regulations adopted by the commission have much to do with the practical usefulness of the statute, and with the results of its application, The people may well trust the com mission to execute the law with perfect fairness, and with as little friction as possible, but of course no relaxation cf principle which underlies it, and no weakening of the safeguards which sur round it. In its administration, amend ments will probably be suggested in the methods of its execution; but I venture to hope that we shall never again be re mitted to the system which distributes public positions purely as rewards for partisan services. Many will rejoice at the check given to this system which upon every change of administration inspires an immense army of claimants for office to lay seige to the patronage of the government, en grossing the time of public officers with their importunities, and spreading abroad the contagion of their disappoint ment, filling the air with the groans of their d'scontent. The allurements of an immense num ber of offices and places exhibited to the voters of the land and their bestowal in recognition of partisan activity, debauch the suffrage and rob political action of its thoughtful, deliberative character. The evil would increase with the multiplication of offices, con sequently with their increase, and the mania for office holding, grow ing out of its indulgence, would pervade our population so generally that patrio tic purpose, the support of principle, and the desire for the public good would be nearly banished from the activity of our party contests, and cause them to de generate into ignoble, selfish and dis graceful struggles for the possession of office and public place. Civil service reform, enforced by law, came not too soon to check the progress of the demoralization. One of its effects not enough regarded, is the freedom it brings to the political action of those conservative and sober men who, in fear of the risk attending any arbitrary and sudden changes in all the public offices with change of party rule, cast their ballots against such a chance. Parties seem to be necessarv, and will continue to exist, nor can it be now denied that there are legitimate advant ages connected with office-holding which follow party supremacy. While partisanship continues as pro nouncad and supplies so much of motive to action, it is not fair to hold public officials in charge of important truBts responsible for the best results in the performance of their duties, and yet in sist that they shall rely in confidential and important cases upon the work of those not only opposed to them in politi cal affiliation but so steeped in partisan prejudice and rancor they have no loy alty to their chiefd, and no desire for their success. Civil service reform does not exact this, nor does it require that their insubordinate positions who fail in yielding their best service, or who are incompetent, should be retained merely because they are in place. The whining of a discharged clerk for indolence or incomptency, who, though he gained his place by the worst possible operation of the spoils system, and sud denly discovers that he is entitled to protection under the sanction of civil service reform, represents an idea no less absurd than he who claims a vacant place as his com pensation for the most questionable party work. The civil service law does not prevent the discharge of the indolent or incompetent clerk, but it does prevent supplying his place with the unfit party worker. The people who desire good govern ment having secured this statute, will not relinquish it. They are not unmind ful of the fact that its full advantage can only be gained through the complete good faith of those having its execution in charge, and this they will insist upon. I recommend that the salaries ot the civil service commissioners be increased to a sum more nearly commensurate to their important duties. THE CONGRESSIONAL LIBRARY. Of the vast collection of books and pamphlets gathered at the capital num bering some 700,000 volumes, exclusive of manuscripts, maps and the products of toe graphic arts also of great volume and value, only about 300,000 volumes, or less than half the collection, are provided with shelf room. The others, which are increasing at the rate of from 25,000 to 30,000 volumes per year are not only inaccessible to the public, but are subject to serious damage from various causes. In consideration of the fact that the library of the capitol has twice been des troyed or damaged by fire, its daily in creasing value and its importance as a place of books under the law relating to copyright, manifest the necessity of prompt action to insure its proper ac commodation and protection. My attention has been called to a con troversy which has arisen from the con dition of the law relating to railroad facilities in the city of Washington which has involved, the commissioners of the' district in much annoyance and trouble. I hope the difficulty will be promptly settled by appropriate legisla tion. The commissioners represent that enough of the revenues of the district are now on deposit in the treasury of the United States to pay the sum advanced by the government for the improve ments under the act of June 30th. 18S4. They desire now an advance of the share which ultimately should be borne by the district of the cost of the extensive improvements to the streets of the city. The total ex pense of the re-contemplated improve ments is estimated at $1,000,000, and they are of the opinioruthat a consider able sum could be saved if they had all the money in hand' so that contracts" for the whole work could be made at the same time. They express confidence that if the advance asked for should be made, the government would be reimbursed by the same within a reasonable time. I have no doubt that these improvements could be made cheaper if undertaken together and prosecuted according to a general plan. The license law now in force within the district is deficient and un certain in some of its provisions and ought to be amended. The commsssion- ers urge the necessity ox pro viding a buUdine for the nee of the dis trict government which shall better secure the safety and preservation of its vaiuaDie, doom ana .records. THE PEESIDENCY. The present condition of the law re lating to the succession of the presidency in the event of the death, disability or removal of both nresident and vice pres ident, is such as to require amendment. This subject has repeatedly heen con-' sidered by congress but no result has been reached. The recent lamentable death ot a vice president and vacancies at the same time in all other offices, the incumbents of which might immediately exercise the functions of the presidential office, has caused public anxiety and a just demand that a recurrence of such a condition of affaire shoujdanot be per mitted. In conclusion I commend to the wise care and thoughtful attention of congress the needs, welfare and aspirations of an intelligent and generous nation; to subor dinate these to narrow advantages of partisanship or the accomplishment of selfish aims is to violate the people's trusts and betray the people's interest, but an individual sense of responsibility on the part of each of us, and a stern deteimination to perform our duty, must well give us a place among those who have added in their day and generation to the glory and prosperity of our be loved land.

Deep breathing and holding the breath is an item of importance. Persons of weak vitality find an uninterrupted suc cession of deep and rapid respirations so distressing that they are discouraged from persevering in tbe exercise. Let such persons take into the lungs as much air as they can at a breath, and hold it as long as they can. They will find a grateful sense of relief in the whole ab dominal region. Practice will increase the ability to hold the breath and the capacity of the lungs. After a time the art may be learned of packing the lungs. This is done by taking and holding the breath and then forcing more air down the trachea by swallows of air. The operation may be described by that of a fish's mouth in water. To those who have never learned it it will be surpris ing to what an extent the lungs may be packed. Caution at first is needful, but later practice will warrant large use of the treatment. The whole thoracic and abdominal cavities will receive immedi ate benefit, and continuance, with tem perance in eating, and good air and right exercise, win Dring welcome improve ment.
