OUawt, 111., January 10.1 MH6. From Washington. WBW VKAR'S 11KCK1TI0N AT THK WHITE HOUpK. THK riiKHIDKNT HANDLES THKM WITHOUT GIAVIS8. Vntxn our lU-gnlar Correspondent.) Wasiiinoton, Jan. 4, ltirttl President Cleveland's first New Year' ftcentlon will lie a memorable one to all wbo attended It. The birthday of 1886 wii as bright and mild here as May. The mo .t perfect New Year's day ever known 1 Washington" was the usual commeni The I'realdent pleawd everybody with his ni vmul luinior. He wore a VUIUIUII fiv - Prince Albert coat, black necktie and standing collar, but no white kid gloves no gloves of any kind. He showed htlgue over his ta.sk of four hours ot Hand- baking, and after the ofllcial reception had closed, and the public was pasnlnir through the parlors, I noticed that he grasped the hand of the drayman or the colored brother as respectfully and klwliy as he had that of (Jueen Victoria's repre sentative. There was no marked degree of nlmplic ity at the reception, but on the contrary, it was a very brilliant and delightful affair It was quite as imposing as any of its pre deceHttnrs, and in point of some details for the comfort and convenience of all, it was an lmjsrovement upon them. Half an hour before the reception tiegan, the Marine Dand, which furnishes the mu slo f jr State occasions, was stationed In the large vestibule, with its music stands and polished Instruments. The newspaper cor respondents also were there early, strolling through the State apartments and noting the decorations. The parlors were frag rant with flowers and lighted with bun dreds of gas jets. The chandeliers were festooned with garlands of smllax, there were baskets of cut flowers on the tables, and potted flowers and.troplcal plants were grouped upon the mantels and window Ills, and massed in n.xiks and corners. When the band struck up "Hall to the Chief," the receiving party descended' slowly to the Blue Iioom, and took their positions in line. Mrs. Hayard came down leaning on the Prenldent's arm. Miss Cleveland was attended by Secretary Hay ard. Secretaries Manning, Whitney, Enili cott, anil Postmaster-General Vilas, oaine with the other Cabinet ladies. These gen tlemen, excepting Mr. I'ayard, retired to the rear of the Illtie I loom, where they re mained mowt of the time during tLe recep tion, looking on the procession of callers, and chatting in groups with the young la dles by whom they wore joined. Among them were noticed the Misses Tllden, nelcos of Samuel J.Tilden, who are guests of Secretary Manuing. The Secretary of State took a position at the left of the President, and Introduced to him the Diplomatic corpse (corps), For, bear In mind, diplomacy Is n mummy of put ages and of effete systems of polity. It has no legitimate place in this day of printing presses, telegraphs, and ocean cables, when King and Cabinets and Presidents learn state secrets from the newspapers long before they are matured la their ow " councils. Why does not civil latlon shi ie oil this fine, old, antique, use less and expensive heritage? The foreigners had congregated In the Ued parlor and were ready for reception. Portugal, Italy, Kngland, France, llelglum, Chin, Austria, Mexico, Kussla, Switzer land, Turkey, Spain, Peru. (Jermany, the U. 8. Columbia, Japan, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, Ecuador and Venezuela were represented and said "Happy New Year" and good wishes to the President in broken English and French. Some of the diplomats came to the White House In coronetod carriages, and many were in special court attire, with a profusion of gold lace and sashes and badges and fctara and crosses ujxm their padded chests. They passed on to the grsat Fast Room, where they lingered awhile, being rein forced by the Supreme Court, Senators and Ileprentatlves, various other high olU dais and an lmMv,Ing array of Army and Navy officers, three hundred strong, In their full uniforms, with their gold braid and fringe and epaulettes. The room fur nished an open field for the display of all this brightness and greatness. It was a Congress of Nations, and a scene at once variegated, interesting and brilliant. But I have not told you how the ladle were dressed, or how they bowed ana lulled to their New Year callers. No, 1 will not descend to anything so frivolous as tiolffurw, laces and trains. Let It buAIca to say that the President's assistant receivers were gracious In manner and au fait of at tire, and that the social debut of the new Administration was satisfactory to its IrlethJri. W. 8. Cherry, of Streator, has iWn S anted a pateut on coal hoist, and J. J. oyd. same place, one for a tool. Washinoton, Jan. Uth, 180. While congress has done nothing start ling since It reassembled, almost every thing that has occurred on Capitol Hill during the week has been traught with Interest and importance. The senate has dUcussed and voted against the Mormons, ad incidentally against Woman Suffrage. Steps were taken towards over hauling the street railways of Washington as well as the V. S. Pension ofllce, and the congrei iooal record was embellished with consid erable eloquence on silver coinage. Sena tor Beck exonerated himself from his recent alleged antagonism to the I'realdent About one thousand new bills were Intro duced In the house and the speaker com Dieted the organization of that Itody by for- mally announcing wiu-re r w assigned his 323 men on bis forty eight committees. There Is no more thnn the usual amount of dissatisfaction among members on account of their positions on the committees. In deed I think there was less complaint than was expected, and the general ven lct of those who have no personal Interests in the great questions with which these commit tees are to deal, is that Speaker Carlisle has arranged them with wisdom and fair ness. Thero are so many new memlers In the present house, that their assignments had to be made somewhat blindly, as their special abilities had not been tested. But the Speaker profited by his experience in the forty eighth congress in placing the old members with a view to their qualifica tions. The more prominent committees which have the most Important work to do are strong. With each congress the task of organiz ing the house is becoming a more delicate and burdensome one. The question lias been raised w hether the labor bhould any longer throw n upon one man. Both branches of congress are now ready for real work, any amount of which is waiting lor them. It is thought the session will continue until August. About three thousand bills have been presented in the house alone. Among those that have been Introduced in the senate Is one demanding lunger sessions of congress, so that the country can have more wnrk for the Mime money. The sessions ought to be continu ous, with only such short recesses as other business men take trom their labors. 1 he pay of congressmen goes on whether they are In session or not. While it Is n very agreeable arrangement i them for con gress to sit only ten or eleven months out of the twenty four, public business suffers neglect. The list of bills with which congress is fli xided furnishes undeniable proof of American inventive genijs. No possible subject of legislation has been slighted. Among them are many old timers that come up and die out with every new con gress. One bill asks that for the remain der of her life tin widow of Gen. Grant may correspond with her friends and that her Iriends may correspond with her w ith out paying ostage. 1 he most popular measure is one lor the establishment of Agricultural Experiment Stations. Nearly all the members from rural districts have Introduced It In one form or another. Alsiut a dozen Civil Service bills have been presented and a new bill asks for the establishment of a National University here. It provides Instruction In the high er branches of all departments of knowl edge, with facilities for research Hiid investigation. Space forbids me to give the full terms of the bill, but I will state that the government of the institution is to be vested In a Board of Regents, consisting ,f one member from each state of the Un Ion, to be appointed by the Governor. Each state and territory shall be entitled to scholarships in the ratio of one for each Representative or Delegate and two for each Senator. These scholarships shall secure free Instruction for five years. The Republicans in both branches of congress are after the Pension Olllce and the senate has passed a resolution for an Investigation of its management, past and present. They complain that Commis sioner Black does not treat them with suffi cient deference when they call on business ; and they have to do something in retalia tion against the recent charges, In Gen. Islack s annual repor, ahout the pension bureau having been a political machine, run by Republican partisans. J. L. Pringle, of Streator, has been awarded a patent on thill coupling; II. R.

Salvation Oil, the greatest cure on earth for pain, may be relied on to effect a cure wherever an external application can be used. Price only twenty live cents a bottle. County Superintendent Stockdale recent iy suggested to school directors that the district supply pupils with pens, pencils, chalk, Ac. ; and State Superintendent Raab, in the following language, fully endorses the suggestion : "I take It for granted that school directors appreciate fully the neces sity of supplying the school room with suf ficient blacklsiards, and that they have these repaired from time to tiuio. For Illus trating the lessons and for many other pur poses good blacklmards are Indispensable. The supplies w hich the directors should furnish for the use of the pupils are chalk, crayons, erasers, slato pencils, pens and penholders, Ink, (and paper to be used in the examination). When these articles are purchased at the expense of the district the cost per pupil for the yenr need not exceed 30 cents. At this small outlay the results btalned In the school work will be far b?t ter than those when each pupil purchases his own supplies, and the expense will on ly bo about one-fourth as much."

The transfer of the sub treasury in New York to the successor of Thomas C. Acton will make necessary a complete count of the many millions of cash in the vaults of the building. The custom In the past has been for the treasury department to appoint a special com-j.ittee of three government exerts to conduct the count, which neces sarily consumes three or four weeks of time. The mere manual labor of handling the vast quantity of coin in the vaults is very tedious. Mr. Acton w ill hand over to his successor aliout $ lSij.OOO.nmi, of which more than fSO.OOO.OtiO i3 in coin and :l?,00() 00 Is In silver coin. " Each bag of gold coin contains f ,000, and each bag of silver $1,000. Consequently there are 16 000 bags of gold and ;57,O0O bags of silver to be handled. Each bag must lie weighed and those that van' from the required standard are put aside and their contents counted piece by piece. The gold and sil ver certificates, greenbacks and national bank notes must be counted note by note. This Is a comparatively easy task for per sons who are In the hatiit of counting large sums of money. Deputy Assistant Treas urer William Sherer has been known to count paper money at the rate of 1,000 notes in six minutes. It U stated that there are women in the treasury at Wash ington who can count even faster than that. In and Outs. Nothing Is so productive of distressing headaches as the tropical heat of summer.

Mendota llnwrt'r: There seems to be no doubt that the much discussed hotel will become a reality.

The basement Is to contain sample room, laun drv, ice room and cistern; en the first floor will be the orlice, dining room, pantry and carving room ; the second story will be oc cupied by the parlors and other rooms, and the present third story will lie changed In to two stories containing rooms for the ac commod itlon of guests and boarders.

Elysium was the name pivrn ' t' rn cient Greeks to the resting pi;. e righteous dead, where tiny fchouid my eternal peace and happiness. None but the pure in heart, the truthful and the gen erous could tread the asphodel meadows of of the Elysiun nelds and it was a l in I of everlasting delight. When, therefore, Mrs. Kate Sherman, of Streator, HI., said re cently that she had been in I'.lyaium, though of course she spoke figuratively, it argued that some great good fortune and joy had come to her. And such, indeed, was the truth. Mrs. Sherman tells how it was iu this way: "I have suffered from inflammatory rheumatism for more than thirty years. Heretofore the pain would succumb to the application of hot wet flannel, but ot my htat attack circumstances had conspired to aggravate the disease, and 1 became help leas. My hands and feet were swollen enormously, and I suffered almost mortal agony. My physician brought me a bot tle of Athlophoros. After taking the third dose I was in Elysium, and was free from pain. By the tune 1 had taken a bottle and a half 1 felt so wonderfully ini- i roved that I discontinued the medicine, have an ungovernabledislike to all med icine, but I will say that Athlophoros prob ably saved my life, as 1 was running down rapidly, and could not have emlmed iho pain much longer. It atlbrded me the only relief I ever experienced except from hot w ater, and that hud failed me." The Rev. Samuel Porter, of Crete, III., snys of tho elici t of Athlophoros upon his wife: " Mrs. Porter was very much benefited by the first bottle. Before she romiiirnccd taking it she could not walk, she w as so badly afflicted with rheumatism, hut she was soon able to walk. She sleeps well. Mr. John Hews, our neighbor, was very badly offwith the rheumatism last winter, and was not able to work or even to get out of his room. One bottle of Athlophoros cured him, but he has to keep it by liiin to take when he feels his old difficulties." Another clergyman, the Rev. C. Hart ley, of Huntley, 111., gives this as his ex perience with the remedy: "For six months I suffered severely from an attack of rheumatism. A frit-nil sent me a notice of several reliable cures elle'-ted. by Athlophoros. I procured the medicine, and less than one bottle com- filetely cured mo, and I have not had the east indication of a return of the painful disease. I have recommended it to others and results similar to those in my own case have followed. 1 regard Athlophoros as invaluable." A. M. Blaknev, who lives at theenrnerof Union ami Green streets, Decatur, III., only confirms the general testimony to the value of Athlophoros when he says: " During the past winter I was stricken with a very severe attack of rheumatism a disease with which I had been afflicted for several years and was rendered almost helpless, and confined to my bed. I tried various medicines, and was presrriled fur by physicians with no avail. Finally 1 was induced by my druggist to try Athlo phoros. I was relieved and cured so quickly that words could not tell my sur prise. I do not hesitate in recommending it to any one suffering with that most pain ful complaint, rheumatism."

New Vu:k Catarrh Cured Catarrh Is a very prevalent disease, with distressing and effensivo symptoms.

Took Hood's Sarsaparllla and tarn not troubled any with catarrh, and my general health is much better." I. W. Lillib, Postal Clerk Chicago & St. Louis lUilroad. " I suffered with catarrh 6 or 8 years ; tried many wonderful cures. Inhalers, etc., spend ing nearly one hundred dollars without benefit. I tried Hood's SarsaparilU, and was greatly improved." M. A.
