' WEBSTER'S LAST SPEECH.
Delivered in the Senate In June, 1850, on
Holies of Washington.
Bon Porloy Poore.
Daniel Webster's last speech shows the
high respect which he entertained for tho
fathers of our liberty, and 'his desire to
treasure all memorials of their greatness.
Henry Clay had introduced a resolution
providing for the original copy of Wash
ington's farewell address, and In advocat
ing its passage he said that in his parlor
at Ashland hu had a broken goblet, used
at a drinking cup by Washington during
bis campaign, and In that parlor there
was nothing so doer to him, or to those
who visited it, as that old broken goblet."
Mr. Webster followed, standing almost
motionless, his body bent slightly forward,
And his bauds gouorally behind his back,
as be uttored his patriotic and dignified
He said be most cordially approved of
the resolution; hoped it would pass. He
belioved it would gratify the country. He
believed it would be gratifying to every
man to have the farewell address of Wash
ington, written by his own band, placed In
the National Library. He agreed with the
remarks of tho Senator from Kentucky In
all he bad said about the pleasure which it
afforded to view the small and evon trifling
relics ot the groat men of the past. He
conceited there was no feeling more urJ
versaU He arose principally to state an
Incident corroborative of what the Senator
had related. About twenty-five years ago
there was offered for sale to Congress a
small casket of medals which had belonged
to the cabinot of Washington. There were
seven or eight of these medals voted by
Conertss theOouerals of the Revolu
tion. Tboy had been struck in Paris, and
the largest of tbera was to Washington, who
had chosen for the obverse the scene of his
entry into Boston after its evacuation by
the lli'itish; the othors wore to Uaaes,
Kuox and other Quuorals. There were
also sotuo to Dr. Franklin and other men of
civil life. Washington had collected these
and had placed his own likeness In the cen
tor, aud twulve othurs around his own,
making, iu all, thlrtoen. This collection
Washington hod kept; after bis death it
had passed into tho hands of his executor,
and Anally, from some cause, was offered
for sale to Congress. A resolution was or
fured that they be bought The matter was
debated in tho other House for two days,
and dually was laid on the table by those
who beliuved Congress bad no constltu
Uonal powor to buy thutn. He bad kept his
eye on them, aud when Congress had re
fused be sent a person ana bought the cab
inet They wore now at his bouse, and
when persons from all parts of the country
visited hint there was no objoct more in
taresting, and the first thing asked for is
that small cabinet of medals collected by
Washington. As Mr. Webster collected
tangible momoutos of Washington, so
Americans now treasure up mementos ot
thu"xpounder of the Constitution."

to witness th tragedy exhibited great
disappointment at tbe shameful action ot

A WINTER'S TALE.
Shivering Stories Indicative of the Strength
of Chleago Heversgea.
Several traveling men were sitting
around a stove in an Indiana hotel one ot
those cold nights last week, tolling shiver
"I don't believe I ever felt it much colder
than this," said one man who had been
doing the South.
Pshaw, this is nothing," said a Chi
cago man who had been doing tbe North
"Ain't It?" inquired the Southern man,
meekly. "I thought It was."
"That's where you're off. Why, man,
I've seen It so cold out on the Northern
Pacific that when a man talked bis worils
frose and fell all around him like a spelling-book
hit by a eyclone; and when be
rwore yon could pick up enough sulphur
to start a brimstone factory with."
"Aw, come off 1" shouted the crowd.
"Well. I won't" said the Chicago man,
"I'm no liar if I do travel out of Chicago.
Why, only lost week I thought I'd go out
on a little hunt up in that country, and in
some war I lost my shot-pouch, and hod
n't anything but powder wad. I bod
loaded my gun, and just at that time I
saw a deer coming slowly toward me. A
udden thought struck me. I grabbed a
black bottle out of my pocket poured the
oontenU down tb gun-barrel, waited a
minute, biased away, and, gentlemen, as
sure as I'm a Cblstlan, I shot an Icicle,
thirty inches long, clear through that deer,
"Don't say any more," Interrupted the

Many yean ago in th good old dayt
when Ben K was one of the best known
and JoUiost of Jersey editor, he and Char
ley Jay "mad a night of it," In Trenton.
They got to their hotel, and Inasmuch as
Charley was in a much better condition, at
least In hi own estimation, than Ben, be
put th latter to bed, tucked bint In nicely,
and having seen that be waa apparently
onnd aaleep, for safe-keeping he took
charge of hi puree and watch, and started
to allp quietly out of the room. H had
Just got th door open without unnecessary
creaking, whon he was ttartlsd at the
voice of hit friend from beneath tb bed-
"Wall, what la It, Ben?"
"Where my purse?"
"Her It Is, Ben, ell safe," said Charley,
guiltily tucking it Into Ben't hand under
the bed clothes. .Ben clutched th purse
and lay perfectly still; to still that Char
ley thought' be waa sound aaleep one
more. Bo he ventured again to open th
door quietly and to start to leave the
room. Again he was stopped Dy ma
thick voioe from beneath the bed lotheei
"Well, what la It, Bear thlt time lit

Trotting Against the DerlL
The Rev. Mr. , now a member ol the
Cillfornla Conference, began hit minister
ial career in Iowa, lie there preached at
three different-places each Sunday, which
gave him twenty odd miles' traveling. He
rode horseback at first, but finding. his
mare too light to easily carry bis weight he
purchased a road sulky, and, much to hit
comfort, discovered that bis mare possessed
considerable speed. One Sunday, while
going from one church to another, he over
took a man also in a sulky, driving a fine
animal. As our friend was in a hurry he
passed the stranger, who kept close behind
him until a long stretch of good road was
reached; then he found his fellow-triveler ,
urging his horse, and before he know it he .
was taking part in a spirited beat, In
which the stranger came off second best
On reaching a bit of rough road both slow,
cd up, and the stranger sung out:
"That's a good mare you've got, my
friend. Docs she belong to you ?"
No," replied Mr. ; "she belongs to
'The Lord," was the response.
"Then I guess you don,t trot her much."
"Oil yes, I do."
"What do you trot her against f
Mr. replied, very solemnly, "The

"Well,-" said Mr. ,"I rather think
I'm ahead of him now."
Mr. afterward ascertained that his '
adversary was the most violent infidel In
the neighborhood. Editor's Drawer in

A IVovel Temperance Society.
On the night of Dec. 81st, 1883, three
young men tut around a tavern fire In
Georgetown, a little village In Connecticut
They were intoxicated, aud were watching
the old year out. At the cluck struck
twelve, one of the young men said : "Boys,
the new year Is here; now let's swear off,
and form a temperance society." The
others, in a spirit of lun, agreed. The
articles of association were then and there
drawn up. They were similar to the rules
of other temperance organizations, with
one exception. The clause containing the
pledge had the following penalty attached .-
'And any one of us who shall drluk any
Intoxicating liquor, for any purpose what
soever, between now ana niiunigni oi
December 81st, 1884, shall be tarred and
This clause becoming known, gained
(he club tbe name of "The Tar and Feather
Temperance Society." Meetings of the
society ot three were frequently held.
Gradually applications for membership
bogan to pour in, and before six months
had passed the society numbered thirty
members. The year of abstinence expired
on new year's eve, and a grand ball was
given by the society, to which a large
number of the best people of the place
were invited. The hall Was filled. At
midnight the president announced that
the pledge had explretf. By a unanimous
vote It waa renewed for another year, and
tome twenty names were added to tho roll.
The peculiar penalty proves an attractive
advertisement, and the matter is tho talk
of the neighborhood. Nearly every resi
dent wears the society's badge, which is
a blue ribbon with a lump of tar filled with
chicken feathers attached. Scientific
