IA.JOR CHA8. N. RICHARDS, I in charge 1 of the Htationcry I room uf the Senate, haa en } tered upon hia tiiirty-ninth gfj year of service in connection with the Senate. He was appointed on the Ist of May, 1864, beginning at tho lowest round of the ladder In the de partment of which he is now In charge. Henry Wilson und Charles Sumner, who were in the Senate with Mr. Richards' father, wore responsible for tho appointment, and their excellent judgment has been fully sustained. Major Richards was wounded at the battle of Antlctnm, where he had a DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE. unique experience. A round hall en tered bis nose, knocking out his upper jaw and teeth. Ho spit out the bail and put it In his pocket, retaining It to this day as a memento of his army life, lu Ills thirty-eight years of service with the Senate, Major Rlchnrds has witnessed innumerable Interesting episodes, and has enjoyed many experiences. Senator Blackburn of Kentucky poured out a glass of ice water and drank it with evident satisfaction. "There Isn’t anything quite ns good as water, after all,” quoth Blackburn, "which, by the way,” he added, “re* minds me of a story. "Down in Kentucky.” began Mr. Black burn, “there was a farmer, who, strange to say. did not know the taste of whisky. One day. at Christmas time, he was nt a neighbor’s bouse and was invited to sample a mixture of cream, lemon, sugar, and other Ingredients, commonly known as egg nog. He sipped, then drank, then drained several mugs. When he started to go home he felt curious. It’s an insidious drink, you know, and when he reached home, he went to bed. The next morning he . awoke with an awful thirst. Breaking the thin covering of ice on the water bucket out on the porch, he took one long drink. ‘Mandy, Mandy, come here nnd bring the children,' he shouted, ‘I never tasted such wnter in my life..’ ” • • * John Marshall Harlan, associate justice of the United States supreme court, is one of the prominent figures in Washington. Born in Kentucky In 3833 he was the recipient of many honors in bis native state before bis i appointment to the supreme bench in 11877. During the civil war he com 'manded the Tenth Kentucky regi ment, and his record during that strife is as brilliant as has been his 1 career at the bar and on the bench. • * • Representative Mercer of Nebraska, hustled a Dill through the recent ses sion of Congress in great shape. He made a record for quick legislation. At 2 o’clock one afternoon Mr. Mer cer asked the House to pass a bill appropriating $75,000 for the construc tion of a quartermaster’s warehouse at Omaha. The House at once obliged the popular Nebraskan, who, as soon as the vote had been taken, hurried' across the capitol to the Senate, to enl|st the aid of Senator Dietrich. The Associate Justice Harlan. bill was immediately laid before the Senate and was passed in the twink lllng of an eye. Then it had to he aent to the government printing ofllce to be printed upon parchment. Mr. IMercer almost literally stood over the type ab It was hastily set, and then (he hurried to the Speaker with a copy of the engrossed bill, the ink being Btill damp. Speaker Henderson sign ed the bill, and over to the senate again went Mr. Mercer to secure the i signature of President Pro Tern. Frye. At 4 o’clock, when President Roose volt entered the capitol, Mr. Mercer ; had the bill ready fox' the flan! ap (Special .Letter.) proval. From the time the House first acted until the measure became a law. Just two hours elapsed. • • • An Interesting discussion is in progress in Boston, in which ex-Con gressman Fitzgerald Is Insisting that speech making is an essential factor to congressional success, and some of the newspapers are combatting the proposition. Fitzgerald, when he was in the House, used to talk a great deal, whereas his successor. Represen tative Connery,' delivered ids first speech a few days ago, Mr. Connery’s friends insist that the man who talks lenst gets the most done. Mr. Fitzgerald has closed the dl» cussion with this contribution: "A man who goes to Washington and can't talk should stay at home." It pays to lie persistent. If Senator Perkins, when a small hoy, had not hung on like grim d«Wh. he would never have reached California; and Jf he hud not reached California, he never would have been elected gov ernor and serator. It was in 1856 that Mr. Perkinß, ' then a boy. agreed with a shipmate Mrs. Burrows. Wife of the Senator from Michigan. to go around the Horn from New York. Perkins went home to Maine to say good-bye to his folks, and when he came back the mate on the ship refused to take him, saying that the vessel's complement was filled. Dis couraged, but not defeated, Perkins wont to the skipper. “The ship's full,” said the captain. Perkins didn't give a continental whether it was or not. He was going to California even If he had to stow himself away in the hold, and he told the captain so. "Can you clew up the tops'ls?” ask ed the captain. "Yes,” said Perkins. A dozen more questions were ask ed him, and all of them were an swered so satisfactorily that the cap tain shipped the lad as a seaman beforo the mast. “We really don’t need you, my boy,” said the captain, “and I wouldn't have taken you if you nud not been so d—d determined to go.” . • - * * The wife of Senator Julius’ C. Bur rows of Michigan, is a notable society hostess. Though her husband was only elected to the Senate In 1895, ho had previously served for a number of years in the House of Representa tives, and so she Is lodked upon as quite an "old Washingtonian,” as the phrase is. In that town of kaleido scopic changes. The Burrows, come from Kalamazoo, and they occupy a very handsome house at 1404 Massa chusetts avenue. A paragraph is going the rounds of the newspapers accrediting Senator Bacon of Georgia, with a eulogy of the peanut. There Is no question that the pea nut is nutritious and appetizing, and it is also true that if you eat one the craving for a handful is intense. This fact is well known to the boys who sell peanuts on the train. There was once a boy who failed to dispose of any part of his stock of peanuts imtil a more experienced vendor taught him a trick. "Leave one peanut with each pas senger," said the wise counsellor to the new boy. “The moment a man eats one peanut he’ll buy a bag.” And it’s true. Try it yourself. Governor With a Record. I-ike other chief executives. Gov. Crane of Massachusetts writes mes 1 sages annually to the state legisla j lure, but his appear to be full of good ideas, for every suggestion he has ! made In the past three years has been ; enacted into laws. Any pretty woman's jaw is a thing of beauty—when it isn’t working. LONDON'S PUBLIC KITCHENS. Cheaper and Better Dinners Than Can Be Cooked at Home. In one* respect London Is In advance of the progressive American cities. Some years ago a man of means, who combined good business sense and philanthropic disposftlon and who be lieved that people of moderate in comes suffered from kitchen extrava gance and also from poor cooking, es tablished a system of public kitchens. At the start the press paid much at tention to the enterprise, but after the novelty wore off nothing was said about it. A recent experience shows that its success has been positive and it may well prove an example for all the world. Large kitchens were placed in vari ous crowded t enters, within the reach of people of small but assured in comes. From one of these a family may order dinner from an attractive bill of fare and have it delivered at a given mlnuto in perfect condition. The establishment will. If required, pro vide the help to serve the meal. Or. if It be preferred, the housewife may do her own marketing and have her own roast anti other articles prepared for the table in the public kitchen. It is obvious that a dinner for a thousand persons can be cooked at a lower rate for each than can a dinner for an ordinary fumliy. Not only ie there a saving in the fuel, but by buy ing in large quantities it is practicable to get everything at a lower price. All the work and annoyance and heat ol cooking, the time and labor of dish washing ami the like, are avoided. The head cook employed in the public kitchen is an expert and an artist. It has been announced that a fnmily may get a better dinner N for a much lower price from the kitchen than it can get under the home cooking system.— Philadelphia Record. AUDITORIUM STOCK CONTEST. Number of Tickets 8old and Interest in It Increasing Every Day. Interest in the Auditorium Stock Contest, which was opened in Omaha July 1, has increased steadily every day since that time and the project promises to bo a great success in ev ery way. The plan adopted for dispos ing of a sufficient amount of the com mon stock of the Omaha Auditorium Company to complete and furnish what will bo the largest and handsom est building of its kind In tho north west, is very simple. The common stock has been divided Into shares of twenty-five cents each, and with each share tho purchaser is given two guesses, one on a special prize and one on a list of 1.001 prizes. The capital prize of $5,000 in gold, contributed by the Defiance Starch Co.* of Omaha. Neb., and 1,000 other prizes, ranging in value from $2.50 up to $3,500. contributed by the business men of Omaha, will be uwarded im mediately after the election next No vember. but the contest for them has already opened, and will close Octo ber 28, or as much sooner as the shares of stock ure sold. Tho capital prize will be awarded to tho person guessing closest to the total vote which will be cast for governor of New York, November 4, 1902, and tho othe.- prizes to the 1,000 persons mak ing the next closest guesses. The total vote at the last five elections was: 1891, 1.1C5.0S5; 1894, 1,275.671; 1896. 1.434,046; 1898, 1,359,190; 1900. 1.55C,- 520. There will be seven more special cash prizes, to be awarded the first and fifteenth of each month until Novem ber, and persons buying tickets now have one guess with each shnre of stock on them ns well ns on the other prizes. Each special prize will be in cash, nnd hot less than $50 nor more than $500. The prize, divided into small bills and "changs" will be di vided and put Into two sacks without being counted, and the person gues sing nearest the amount In the larger sack will be given the contents of both sacks. The contest is not confined to residents of Omaha or limited to any number of tickets. Anyone desiring further information or tickets should address Omaha Auditorium Co., Omaha, Nebraska. Due to Nervousness. For a number of years a distin guished French physician. Dr. Iteril ion, has been making, observations pertaining to the habit of tinger-nnil biting. The facts which he has gath ered show that the habit is a result of a diseased nervous system, lie ex amined the pupils in a number of schools. The habit is much more prev alent among girls than among boys. In some schools fifty per cent, of the girl pupils had contracted the habit. It was noted that the nail-biters were tlie poorest students. The habit pre vails most frequently between the ages of twelve and fourteen. A Pretty Navy Habit.
