Madison, April 4.—The senate met voder day but as there was no quorum present no business could bo done. To-day at noon Li> ut.- Govuuor Filield made the announcement of final adjournment. Assembly. Madison. April 4.— There were onlv fifteen members present. After thanking the mem bers lor courtesies the speaker declared the assembly adjourned fine die. Several bills died by default in the governor’s hands. The bill making railroads report their gross earn ings md mileage to the railroad commissicntr instead of the state treasurer, and excepting side tracks from the report of mileage, did not receive the executive signature. The reason was that the railroad commissioners and attor ney general tiled their opinion that the bill was liable to be so construed that companies would report spur tracks in reports of mileage, thus decreasing their license lee by placing them in a different class; where, as now, both spur and side tracks arc excluded from the report of mileage. The assembly bill authorizing John E. Glover and others to have exclusive posses sion of Willow River and tributaries m Polk and St. Croix Comities was not signed because there was some doubt as to whether it had passed, the record on the bill being torn off. The assembly bill relative to the sale of Und on foreclosure was not signed for the following reason: The original bill was killed and i substitute passed, but by a mistake in tie assembly clerical force the original bill was enrolled and sent to the governor instead of the substitute. The assembly bill relative to fire escapes, one of tbe most important of the session, did not reach the governor from the enrolling committee till 11 o’clock this morn ing. It is very long, taking over an hour to read it and the governor could not even get to it before 12 o'clock. Now tbe question arises as to whether be can sign tbe bill alter the legislature adjourns. The attorney general has been requested to deliver an opinion o*i tbe subject. The sleeping car aud telephone license bills were approved after all, because the attorney general filed au opinion that the constitutional passage relative to taking the ayes and uocs on the tax bills did not applv to this kind of legislation. So these two bills be come laws. LATEST MARKET REPORT.

Times Washington Letter.] “ Yes, I knew Mr. Webster welJ,” re sponded a gentleman of mellow years aud spirits, when inquired of concerning the great New Englander, “and what has just been said of him reminds me of an incident which, with others of simi lar kind I have heard, gives a pretty good idea of one of his traits relating to finances. Mr. Choate was in Washing ton at the time. He and Mr. Webster were almost as brothers. One day Choate needed £SOO and be applied to Mr. Web ster. ‘ Five hundred dollars! ’ says Mr. Webster. * Xo, I haven't it this mo ment, but I will get it for you, Choate.’ Tbe latter was glad to hear it and would wait, ‘ Draw your note,’ said Webster. ‘ 111 sign it aud bring you tbe money. While you are aliont it, make the note for a thousand; a thousand is as easy to get as live hundred.’ Mr. Choate said that five hundred was all he needed. $2.00 A YEAH. I DI take the other five hundred,' said Webster. The note wvs drawn, aud .Mr. Webster taking bis cane went out into the avenue. ‘Good morning, Mr. St., good morning.’ said ho, as lie entered the great banking house which was the fiscal agent of tue government. 4 Good morning, Mr, Secretaiy,’ said the great banker, iu the blandest manner 4 What can 1 do for yon this mornieg, Mr. Sec retary ?’ Mr. Webster was se.-re:ary of state at the time. 4 A little favor for my friend Cheat '. Be wants a little money, and I told him I thought I could get it for him. A thousand, I helieie, he made his note for,’ pasting the paper to the banker. There was no such thing as hesitating, much less de clining, and so the banker was only hap py to accommodate the bead of Mr. Fill more’s administration. The gold was laid out, iu two equal pika, at Mr. Web ster’s request. Patti: g one iu each pocket, aud with one of (be bows which Mr. Webster only could give, departed. 4 Here, Choate, here is the five hundred,’ said the great expounder, entering where Choate was waiting. Handing him the gold, Mr. Webster resumed his rending where he had been interrupted by Choate’s entrance.” The narrator of this incident did not recollect much about 1 1- • sequel. 44 Brth are dead you know,” said he. “They were gnat men, and 1 value tbeir autographs highly.” The Strings of Sound. iTroiii the New Yurt Snu.] \ roliu, guitar and banjo strings aud in tact all torts that come under the gener al head of “gut” are made from the en trails of lambs and cattle, from the deli cate threads used for tewing racket ball covers up the half inch thick round belts. After a lamb is seven months old its en trails arc no longer tit for making strings for violins; consequently this branch of the manufacture can only be carried on a few mouths in each year. Few people have any idea of the many uses to which gut strings are now put. They are used to hold up clock weights, for belting, for lacing on lawn tenuis and racket bats, for lacrosse scoops, for weaving fine whip covers, for sewing covers on balls, for jewelers’ drills aud for a thousand things, I suppose, that even I do not know of. All the work of making gut strings is about the same but greater care has to be exercised in prepar ing those intended for musical instru ments than others. The process of manu facturing those is comparatively simple, but far from easy. When the entrails, for which a goo I price has to be paid, are thoroughly cleaned, they are split with a razor. Only one half is fit for use in violin strings. That is the upper or smooth half, the lower half is fatty, rough, aud of unequal thickness. The strips are put through rollers turned by hand for eight or nine days, to take all the stretch out of them. Then they are spun or twitted. Five or six strands go to make an E string, eight or nine an A string, and twenty are put into a D string. Then they go through a bleach ing bath of sulphur fumes. After that they are twisted again. Then they are softened in pearlash water, again sub jected to tbe action of sulphur fumes, twisted again, dried, and finally rubbed down smooth with pumice stone. Alto gether it takes ten or eleven days to make a string. When done, they are each seventy-two inches long—four lengths for a violin—and thirty of them coiled separately and tied together make up the “bundle”of the trade. There is one maker in Italy who, by some secret pro cess of his own, secures and guarantees peifcct accuracy throughout for every string he makes. Ho does not make more than sixty or one hundred bundles a year, but his strings command SlO per bundle here—cost that to the importer —while other Kalian strings are worth only S3 to and others only £2.50. Hand Davis’ Too. (From the San Francisco Post.) Some two years ago David Davis was suffering with a severe bunion on his left foot. At least the senator supposed it was a bunion, although as he hadn’t seen his feet for a generation, it was pretty much a matter of guess work. However, it hurt him more than the republican successes, so he called in a chiropodist, and when that specialist inspected the damage ar.d came to the surface once more, he reported that the excrescence was about as big as a ten-cent loaf, and that nothing but the most careful treat ment would save the foot. Mr. Davis accordingly procured a shoe o the six day-go as-you please de-cription, the toe of which he could almost see himself when be kicked out pretty hard. It was a sad sight to watch the presiding officer of our most dignified body hobbling up the capitol steps supported by a big cane and the leather pedestal referred to for six months after that. It was anew edition of Bunion’s Pilgrim’s Progress, bound in calf. Sometimes the bunion would grow better and sometimes worse. Meanwhile the corn doctor sent in liis bills regular ly “for digging out the senators foun dation,” cs lie facetiously called it. At last the sufferer became imbued with an absorbing desire to visually inspect the cause of his tormeuts, and, one day, yielding to a sadden impulse, he limped ‘into a photograph saloon, pried off his shoe, and requested the operator to take a tintype ot his foot. When it was completed he almost fell off his seat in an apoplectic lit of rage, for the picture disclosed a small iron clamp attached to his little toe, the screw of which the chiropodist evidently tightened or loos ened at pleasure. The senator deter mined upon a frightful revenge, and the next morning, when the corn doctor knelt to remove his shoe as usual, the man of weight deliberately turned round and—sat on him. But why dwell npou the sad particulars ? The corn doctor was removed to the hospital, where three months after lie died to slow music, after having made a full confession, and in the full hope of a glorious immortal ity. A Dinner That Will be Served for Sev enteen Until Sixteen Die. (From ihe Pbilade'phia Times.] A novel banquet took place at the Ho tel Bellevue. It was the third annual dinner cf the Last Man’s Club, formed three years ago. It has seventeen mem- j bers. Each member must attend the dinner annually. Death, serious illnes or separation by great distance alone ex- i cases. At every dinner a place is kept for each absent member, whether living or dead, and dishes and wine are serv-d opposite their empty chairs, the same as if they were present. A furious and el- 1 egant tankard of beaten silver, filled , with wine, is passed around the table j and quaffed by each one present until ] emptied. As each member dies his name \ will be engraved on the tankard until finally the last man, surrounded by the overflowing plates, the full glasses and the empty chairs, will drink to their memory alone. Then the dinners will cease and the tankard will become the last man’s property. WISCONSIN STATE NEWS. Perry H. Smith, the Cl icago mil lionaire, was placed in the Madison insane asylum on the 30th.

Eal* Claire Free Press: The ques tion propounded to a prominent lumber man as to how many men were engaged iu the Chippewa pineries the present season, was answered iu this way: It takes 100 men, on an average, to cut 0,000,000 feet aud that as the cut would be about 700,000,000 feet, there must be upwards of 8,000 to do the work. This cannot be far from the actual uum ber. In addition to this there have lieen about 100,000,000 feet cut ou the North Wisconsin railroad, employing upwards of 1,500 men. A good share of this number will make their headquarters in this city. An old soldier uatmd W. B. Rathbnrn died on the 2-lth at 317 Park Street, Mil waukee, aged 03 years, of acute pneumo nia. He came here from New York and had papers on his person showing that he was drawing a pension of 82 a month. He had no relatives here and said that he did cot want his family to get any of his property, expressing* a hope that they would not hear of his death. He had a check for §350 and some ef fects at the depot which he gave to the lady who cared for him during his ill ness.

' 'flip Sherman Diamonds. It appears that the diamonds sent by the khedive of Egypt to Gen. Sherman, and of which so much has been said, were finally sent, after many years of anxiety and annoyance, to Tiffany. They were taken from their crude Egyptian setting, when it was discovered that many of them were not the gems they were supposed to.be, but were worth al together $30,000 or more. Gen. Sher man has four daughters—Miss Lizzie, Mrs. Fitch, Mrs. Thackara and Miss Rachel. The diamonds were divided equally among the daughters—lour sets of solitaire earrings and four necklets. Still none of them have ever yet been worn, so great is the aversion of the family to undue display.
