All the Symptoms Decidedly Improved llreoverlng Ills Volco A l'cncoful Sunday, Mount McClnraon, N. V,, Juno 21. "Gen. Grant has slept nine hours slnco ho retired last night. Ho Is now being dressed aud will bo out soon," said Dr. Douglas, as ho chatted with a caller at tho Grant cottago between 12 and 1 o'clock to-day. Tlio doctor further explained that, though tho general went to lied a llttlo after I) o'clock last night, ho did not sleep until about 11 o'clock. From that tlmo through tho night tho patient had slept well with few breaks of wakefulness, and tho doctor had not been called until 7 o'clock this morning, when ho cloausod aud treated tho general's throat with cocalno. At that tlmo tho general's volco had been clearer than at any tlmo slnco his arrival hero. When tho doctor was called at 7 o'clock tho sick man's pulso was 03, but after ho had become thoroughly aroused by tlio doctor working over him the pulso beats had Increased four beats per mluulc, and regis tered Vi under tho doctor's thumb. After this and all through tho forenoon Gen. Grant remained In his bed of. chairs. It was after midday when ho got up to begin his first Sunday on tho mountain, aud It was about 1 o'clock when bo mada his first op peantneo on tho piazza. Ho woro tho now suit ho donned yesterday and seated him ftlf In a willow armed chair ou the north veranda of tho cottago. Then when a caller at this tlmo asked his physician how his natlcnt found hlmsolf unon rlslnr ho was told that tho general was decidedly better; that all tho symptoms wcro to-day decidedly Improved over yesterday. Tho sick man's volco was not so clear as whon ho nwoko In tho monilnr;, though It was quite audible. After slttlu'j ten minutes listening to tho chat betweon Mrs. Grant, ono of her daughters-in-law, and Dr. Doug las, the general aroso aud walked Into tho room used hero as an ofllco. IIo secured a pad of paper, returned to his chair, put on Ills spectacles, and began writing. While so engaged tho family was called to lunch In tho cottago. Dr. Douglas wrapped n blanket about his patient's legs, and then went up to tho hotel for his lunch. Gen. Grant was thus left alone unon tho nlazza. aud ho wroto steadily 011 during three quarters of an hour until 3 o'clock. Then bo handed his pad aud manuscript to Har rison, who took them Inside. Another block of war history had been prepared for Insertion nt tho proper placo In tho gen eral's memoirs. When tho llttlo mountain engine pulled Its two llttlo cars up from Saratoga at 3.30, and uuloadcd a hundred people upon tho platform of tho llttlo rustic depot on top of tho mountain, Gen. Grant was sitting upon tho cottago stoop. Tho visitors strolled up tho elopo past tho cot tago In a procession of twos aud threes. An Impulso was obeyed to saluto tho ccncral with lifted hats, aiul ho. pleased to sco visitors who do not talk to and tiro him a half dozen times, removed his silk hat from his head with firm nour ishes, and so returned tho grcotlngs of tho llttlo procession ta It filed up tho slopo to tho hotel. Old Guard Wlllcts, In Grand Army uniform, had stood at tho foot of tho steps to prevent unduly curious persons from crowding near or speaking to tho general. Though cotpjhlng a trifle inoro than yester day, tlio'gcuernl was having a peaceful Sun day, qulto different In tomneraturo and at mosphcro from tho sunorucatcd Sabbath tho patient last spent lu Now York, a weok ago. After tho family had dined to-night tho general sat with them upon tho piazza un til nearly 8 o'clock, when ho went Indoors and did not ronppcar. Ho had walked less than usual during tho day. Ills writing has drawn upon the strength usually do voted to oxcrclso. Ilctwcou 8 audi) o'clock Dr. Douglas saw his patient composed In his chair for the night, but tho general did not fall asleep until 10.30 o'clock. Soon after this Dr. Douglas, In answer to an In quiry, said that tho general had complained of soma pain during tho evening, but that it was soon relieved. Tho area of tho out sldo swelling, tho doctor judged, was less tlion last Sunday, and his throat lnsldo was no worso. Iho amount of expec toration was not materially Increased or diminished. Tho physician saw no reason more than usual to apprehend a wakeful night for tho general, and emphasized his assurance by going to bed at'll o'clock. A llttlo whllo after tho lights In, tho cottago wcro put out, except tho light' In Iho gen eral's room. Midnight Tlio cottago Is quiet and dark, except tho dim light lu tho sick room.

"Wllf you toll Tun ItErunttcAN what tho school board lias dono In tho way of Industrial education 1" This question was put a week since to Gen. William Blrnoy by a reporter. A press of business prevented a satisfactory answer being obtalnod at that time, n week's graco being askod aud granted. Last night tho samo Inquiry was put, nnd tho tempest lu a teapot anont cer tain prospective changos In Trustee Illr nej's school division having quieted down, and his privato business nut pressing, that gentleman was found ready and willing to answer. --Am' uuuru, uu Bum, "iiu. uu luuiio u defray tho expenses of establishing work shops. It appointed a special commlttco to study.tho subject, and passed a by-law cre ating a standing committee to tako chargo of It. This wilt go Into forco next month. Besides, It authorized auy trustco to set osldo tho last hour of each Friday's session for work by tho pupils. That Is all tho of ficial action I can now remember." "What Is being dono under tills permis sion?" "Trustees Smith Purvis, and Orlswold nro each especially Interested nnd making tcntatlvo efforts 011 a limited scato. Tho chief work dona Is, I understand, sowing by tho girls nnd making paper bags bv tho boys. Tho result a aro satisfactory. What has been dono In tho division under my chargo has been by tho voluntary action of toacbers; n llttlo sowing. I expect to profit by tho cxpcrlcnco of tho trustees I havo named, and to do something next year." "This Is a small beginning, Is It nott" "It Is not qulto all. A year or two ago Iho board entered Into relations with tho Industrial Homo School, on tho outskirts of Georgetown, by which It appoints a teacher there, and supervises tho methods of school Instruction. Trustco Curtis has tho matter under his charge, and can tell you all about It, Tho homo was built up chiefly by prl ato bcucvolcnco and Individual effort, aided by soma congressional appropria tions.

Tho grounds aro largo enough for a very largo garden, a small farm, and thoro aro shopB. When I was thcro last, tho children wcro worltlng at gardening, snocmauins, wood. carving, and wero handling carpenters' and black smiths' tools for sundry purposes.' Thogcn cral management Is lu tho hands of n board ot directors, of which Trustco Curtis Is a member. Tho Institution Is a success and may furnish many hints for tho school board. "Is that tho only Institution of tho kind In tho District V" "Thcro Is tho Metropolitan Industrial School, established by ladles two j cars ago, for tho benefit of while children. It Is working well, and tho llttlo fellows will In terest tho visitor. It relies for support upon donations, and money cannot bo given any whero for n nobler nnd purer purpose You can find out all about It from Mrs. Dcanc, tho treasurer and founder. "I should mention, too, tho Frcodmon's Orphan Asylum, west of Seventh street, half way up Howard University hill. This Is ono of tho best managed Institutions of tho kind. Tho children aro carefully trained lu habits of Industry', and aro especially ex pert In knitting, sewing, nnd cooltcry. Thoy aro cheerful aud bright, showing all tlio marks of loving caro. I do not know tho matron's namo." "Is thcro an Industrial department lu auy of tho colleges?" "Howard Uulvorslty has ono. I under stand that facilities aro given for learning tho uso of tools In six trades and that it has been successful enough to Justify Its con tinuance." "Do you think tho school board will In troduce Industrial education Into tho public schools?" "To tho" best of my belief every trustco favors Industrial education tho training of tho hand as well as of tho mind. Judgo MacArthur's book has greatly strengthened their Interest lu the subject by giving nclcar statement of essays mado elsewhere. But tho problem of how to councct Industry with our largo system of public schools has not been clearly solved. Tho first difficulty Is tho want of competent teachers.

"If," said tlio preacher, "wo should study tliamonPctcr as wo find him In tho new translation Scriptures wo should say that from tho time he first met Christ to tho time of his crucifixion at old Babylon a great chango had been passing in him. Ho llrst saw Christ aliout A. D. 20, and suffered martyrdom about A. D. OS. In this period of forty-two years, or thereabout, this moral and spiritual change took placo. IIo was In every element which goes to mako up a personal Identity, tho samo man all through.

But whatever those changes may bo lu a man, thoy pertain chlclly to his course of life, and the courso of a Christian llfo Is npinwth away from tho transitory to tho enduring.

Dr. Nniirno Dlscussea tbo Customs mid Doctrliivs r tho Disciples, Willi Modern Applications. l!cv. Dr. ltnbcrt Nourso preached at tho Tabernacle last evening, choosing as his text Acts xl: 20 "Aud the disciples wero called Christians." "Tho disciples wcro first called Christians InAiitloch. They wero first called brethren. '1 hey did not glvo tho preachers tho titlos of reverend und doctor, and I wish they did not do so In our da s. Tho word reverend was never pl en to ministers until 200 years ago. Our Master said: 'ISo yc not called riibbl or master; you nro all brclhrcn.' This term means kindred and variety. It Is a very great mercy that thero must bo dis similarity of brethren lu Jesus Christ. What it blessing It is that this world Is not left to bo monopolized by oua church. "In other countries you Hud certain churches monopolize religion, aud It causes nigoiry ouu persecution, simpiy uocauso that church will nut rccogulzo that thcro must be a-dissimilarity. If thcro is any thing stupid lu this world It Is to talk with a man who always agrees with you. Let us recognize the fact it differences do not mean hostility. "Iho disciples wcro also called saints, Wo havo an Idea that a man Is a saint If ho Is sanctimonious; If ho Is solemn, with llttlo sunshine In his face; It ho talks goody-goody religion occasionally; If ho Is exceedingly and excessively pious. We havo a popular Idiit that a saint Is not much ot a man, but nsort of well, not quite a lunatic; woll, he you would not llko to tie onto him. Whllo I cannot dcscrlbo htm, you know him. "It you turn to tho biblical meaning of the word saint you will llnd It Is a man who Is pood, Wo mid thcro Is a great deal of dlitcrcnco between a Just and a good man. A Just man pays all his debts, ho tells tho truth, toucan rely upon his word, but If thcro Is a poor man who Issufferiug ho docs not scud a buif, nud If there Is a sick man be only Inquires It tho dlseaso Is Infectious. Perfectly Just, but nothing good about him. I think tho most unlovable pcoplo lu this w orld nro tho excessively rlghtoous. "Another man would not hear a talo of woo without shedding tears, aud ho cannot possibly say 'no' to any ono lu distress. In tho Just and benevolent man thoro Is some thing good. "'iho dlsclnlcs wcro also called believers. You could not glvo n person that namo unless ho believed somcthliij. Thero are certain fundamental facts lu our religion which they believed with all tholr hearts. Christianity is a personal matter betweon tho Lord Jesus Christ ami themselves. Creeds In their placo nro necessary. Scien tists, musicians, and philosophers all have their creeds. "Tho Christians believed In tho Lord Jesus Christ. Paul said, 'I know In whom I believe, not in what I behoved.' Thoy believed in all ho did for them, aud conse quently they were called bcltovcrs, and so no man can be a Christian who does not bo llcvo lu tho Lord Jesus Christ. "They wcro called disciples. This namo Is dropped to a great extent, and as wo havo dropped the word wo havo dropped tho thought. "There aro many mysteries in our religion and thero will continue to bo, and when wo know tho most it will bo to know this mys tery. I w ould not givo a cent for a religion that bus not somo mystery lu It, Tlio mo ment wo compichcud Clod wo are greater thuu Ciod himself." Mr. Morrlck Improtlup;. The condition of Hon. Ittchard T.

DORMAN B. EATON'S-BYASION" hi: upholds tiik aitoixtmknt op a clkitk without examination. Iho Direct CJ iint Ion Itepllrd to In Oon rrnllllcs No Issue Itetweon tlio Ad ministration nntl the Civil ftarvloo Commlsslun In tlio Intorlor Uopnrt lnrut Case. Tho recent action of tho President, lit emending somo ot tho rules governing appointments under tho civil service law, lias given rlso Io a conflict of power betweon the civil service commission and tho pres ent administration. Thcso rumors wcro not without somo foundation, but wcro exag gerated, and of coltrso met with emphatic; denial from members of tho commission and such mcmlicrs ot Iho Cabinet as would com mit themselves. During tho second week of President Cleveland's administration The National Hr.runi.icus pub llsbcd the views ot tho members of a. majority ot tho Cabinet upon tho subject ot t Is. 11 service. Tho views wcro strictly lu accord with those of tho President ns con tained In his Inaugural address, each Cabl net olllccr saying that tho law would bo maintained and that they believed such a course would Insure good government, lu that tho conduct of national affairs would be placid tn competent hands. 1 be law was maintained and enforced, mtiih to tho disgust of some, but Indorsed by the bitter class of Democrats and Inde pendent!, to whom President Clevclaud ones his election. That was thrco months ago, nud no appointment mado was charged as a violation of the law. In several Inter lens tho mcmlicrs of tho commission sanctioned tho courso ot tho administration In making appointments "legitimately and In strict compliance of the law," as Mr. Fuloii Is quoted by nu eastern paper. An appointment made by Secretary Latmr ralsid u question which neither tho Secre tary tior commission has attempted to ex plain. Tho appointment was that of att l,f 00 clerk, whn was "designated" ns chief of the dlt Islon of accounts of tho general laud ulllce. It becamo a mutter of common gncslp when no explanation was vouchsafed I hat none would bo given, and that an Issuo bttween the Cabinet und tho commission hail I cut created. Furthermore It was said that one of the commission (Mr. Katou) would rislgn. Tho cause of such action was said Io bo tho President's declination to Inter fere In tho matter and Secretary Lamar's continued refusal to revoke tho appoint ment, Mr. L'aton, when seen at the commission rncms lost w eck, denied emphatically that tlmo existed auy troublo between tho com mission and tho President, or that tho ap pointment In question was cither a direct or Indirect tlolatlon of the civil service law. To substantiate his asccrtlou the register of the land ofllce was shown, lu which' thu ap pointment was given as n matter of "desig nation." Ill explaining the latter term Mr. Eaton said: "1 hero Is no chief of that di vision provided for. It Is mado under tho regulations of Iho department, which pro vides that nu $l,bO0 clerk can bo nude tho chief ut division without a civil service ex amination." "But, Mr. F.aton, can tho oppolntmcnt ot an $1,EC0 clerk, or any clerk lu tho classified service, bo made without such nu cxami nallonl" askesl tho rcportor. Although this was it direct Inquiry, Sir. Eaton did not probably lcgard It so, for ho said, "Pardon me, until I get through. As I told sou, tho appointment of chief ot the division of accounts Is simply a techni cal designation, aud tho Incumbent is rated as an ?1,800 clerk, endowed by tho Secretary of tho Interior with tho power to oxecutu tho functions of tho olflcc. Such an ap pointment you can plainly sco does not rrnnn. wlUifii the., ecopo. oL clvlL.pcrvlCO ru cs. it Is provided lor clsewlicre." Tho reporter did not plainly soo tho propriety ot appointing a por toii to an fl.cOO appointment with out an examination, as required by law, and said so, but Mr. Eaton Ignored thu facts of tho case, and went ou to say that us for thcro being any "troublo between any member or members ot the Cabinet and myself It Is absurd. Tho commission was assured of tho hearty co-operation ot the President, nud wo havo received It. Thero Is no rupture. I am a Itepubllcan, but. think thai I havo tecclvcd tho support of the present administration because it Is n E"d'"-" -tws5 rTlINOr.OOICAL, 1 fQUTKY. Tbo Worjc oT MnJ.
