There was a tree, witli presents for all, some music and recitations and an address bj tho pastor. As tho night was dark and tho road home long, Mr. Shuey accepted the invitation of one ot his parlshoners, Mr. C. Hoedel, to stay all night. In the morning when tho pastorgot ready io start nomo no round a lino young horso harnessed to his buggy, while his little old pony was tied behind. Ilo naturally inquired what that meant and was answered that It was a Christ mas gift from his Allen Center people. It was a handsome and timely pres ent and Mr. Shuey appreciates il, and is particularly touched by the direction and good will which prompted it. Troubles of True Love. Just because his steady girl gave him a frigid look tiom her "goo-goo" eyes, an Iola boy not long since got into an embarrassing place. Ho de cided to teach tho minx a lesson, and naturally choso another girl to help po'nt the moral. Taking It for granted that tho steady expected him to toko her to tho coming attraction ho sent a kid with a noto to an east sido girl Hotng restless, ho followed the kid and stopped near tho house. Tho lad rang and delivered the unto and left. The young man told him to go back und get an answer. The kid rcappcarod at tho door after but a minute's absenco and demanded an answer. The young lady said sho didn't think ono necesssary and tho kid said: "Oh, It's no trouble, ho's'right out hero at tho corner." Which of courso wasn't what tho kid should havo said, and embarrassed his employer so holiasn't recovered yet. Merchants Knjoy a (Jood Trade. Although thero aro nearly twice the number of merchants hero thero were a few years ago and all of them carry far larger stocks Jof goods especially in tlio way of holidays goods than over before, tho Christmas trade was very satisfactory all around.

The displays wero liner as well as larger than usual and a gratiflylng feature of tho trade is that mo nest goods sold first and only I ciii-iiji toys ami irinKcts wero left over.

Wasiiinoion, Dec. 2t. Interest con Unites to center at the capital. In spite of tho holiday recess and the thought of Santa Claus and Christmas gifts and Uio festivities of tho season, peo ple are pondering over tho great meas ures pending In congress. There are diversions In the dlrccUou of prepara tions for the relnauguratlou of Presi dent McKlnley nnd tho social season which will follow tho reassembling of congress the first week In tho new year. But tho nuxlety of tho people to have placed In law two or three groat measures der discussion and which tho predominant parly promised to have enactiil constitutes the all con suming theme of discussion. It Is yet believed that tho Nicaragua canal treaty will In some satisfactory form bo latllled, and then will follow the adoption of the Nicaragua canal bill. It Is a question whether thero will be In the bill Dually adopted an outright appropriation providing for the complete construction or whether there will bo a pledge for the construc tion of the canal and a small nppiopii atloit for the acquirement of all tho rights and the completion of tho sur vey and the appointment of a comnils mIoh and the making ready of every thing for tho final contract when con gress meets tignhi lio.U December. It Is generally felt that some provi sion must be made for the mnrketlng on tho high seas to our now market places of the surplus products of our country. The unexampled growth of our export markets must be not only maintained, but continued. If the merchant marine bill Is passed and provision made for the construction of tho Nicaragua canal, a new Impetus will be given to tho growth of our ex port markets, and It will not be neces saty to wait until each of these ac complishments has been perfected to make a very perceptible Impress upon the expansion of our markets and the heightening of the prices for our prod ucts. Tho opposition that pertained In somo quarters to the adoption of tho merchant marine bill on account of the odious name "subsidy" Is disappearing. In same quarters there was hesitation on nccount of the proposition to admit to American registry foreign built ship because of a dlspoiltloo to con fine the construction of all ships that would profit under the proposed law to thoio constructed In American ship yards. But now Uiat It Is understood that t'ae only object to be attained by the bill Is the establishment of ships under the control of American laws to carry Amrican products Into foreign markets and create the greatest possi ble amount of rivalry, thus assuring the lowest powlblo freight rates, this prejudlco and hesitation are disappear ing. It Is proposed that tho foreign built ships shall only proBt to the ex tent f one-half of the amount of the ships built within the United States, but the foreign built Bhlps nro required to furnish the same means of transpor tation and enter fully as much Into the rivalry for the reducing of freight rates, so that the producer Is only in terested In getttlng good markets and low freight rates, while American ship builders nnd the producers of articles which will enter into tho construction of ships nro fully sntistled to know that they are given double the advantage, while only no per cent of the bounty goes to the ships built abroad, but reg Istered under American laws and sub ject to American discipline. It has Just dawned upon many of those who have adversely criticised the shipping bill that but a very small per centage of our goods aro not marketed In American ships; that more than nine-tenths of our produce goes abroad In ships owned nnd controlled by for eigners, nnd should any rlvaliy or Jeal ousy occur our farmers and manufac turers would be the ones to sudor and not the United States government. But the only question now In dispute as to this measure lies In the question of whether the bounty Is to be paid on the tonnage carried or on the capacity of tho ships making regular sailings to given ports, taking our exports without respect to their cargoes, Just so the lat ter aro made up eutlrely of American pioducts. .. President McKlnley has snuffed out tho Idea that he may have an oxtra bps slou of congress. A few disappointed meu In uach branch of congress men who were defeated for re-election and must on the 4th of March retire to prl vato life returned to their posts of congressional duties with the Idea that they would he dogs In tho manger and prevent legislation. Some of lhiii even threatened to talk to death any meas ure that might ho proposed. In the house thero Is n committee on rules which may at any time repoit a reso lution advancing as a pilvlleged meas ure any bill to be dlscusjod, and tho resolution may fix tho time limit of de bate and au hour when a vote will bo taken. In the senate there Is an old code of rules which provide that so long as any ono wants to discuss a proposition he may do so, and not until nil have talked as much as they want to talk can a vote be taken. For many years thero hns been discussion as to tho feasibility of "cloture," which means a provision In the rules which will enable a majority of the senate to tlx nn hour when debate shall censo and a vote be taken on n given proposi tion.
