Thore are ministers who Boem never to get beyond Adam and Eve and their escapade in tho ffiirden. Men live and move and are ruined, in thoir very sanctuaries al most, but their mind.') aro bo lar irom earth that its poor sinful mon find no snLiffl from thoir sermons.' . Thore are preachers who preach year in and year out and never tell tno peopie that tho saloon is a sido door to hell and whiwkoy stingeth like an addor. Even ;sonie miniBttw openly throw cold water on the temperance cause. As late as last Sunday an orthodox minister preaching to a Gatesville audience, said joining tcmperanco councils didn't do any good! He said to got a man to (jurist wouiu, Ticrforee. make him temperate. That may bo good thoology in its own pe culiar way, but wo '11 give tho gentle man a year's subscription for every man he gets to Christ when tho man is full of Texas whisky. Whisky iu tho stomach and Christ in the soul aro opposite conditions that never tako place in the same individual at tho same timo. We have no doubt tho churches do a erreat deal in their way for temporance, but from the number of church momoors wno go in and out of our saloons, one would naturally be led to conclude that some other restraining influence was nocesaary. In a quiot way some church members do more for whisky than they do for home missions or Sunday schools, and the kind of preaching above alluded to is largoly responsible for it. Seeing ono church member drinking at a bar furnishcB tho common drunkard at least a week's excuse for getting drunk. Ho savs he's as crood as tho church member, for the church mem ber drinks too, and ho tolls the truth. Ministers should nreach of a crroat many things, but wo believe there is no part of tho Christian ministry more important than tho teaching of temperance. There is too much Adam and Eve and flood and too lit tle temperance and charity in the or dinary sermon. And tho preacher who openly opposes temperance work is scoring two points for the devil whilo he scores ono for the Lord all tlirough the campaign. Gatesvillo Advance. Hon. A. W.

WASIIIXUTON LETTEIt. From Our Rsgalar Corraspoodrut. WAsniJJOTO, Mar., 7th, 1885. Tho tinaniiuoua verdict ou tho in auguration id that it was tho most brilliant, enjoyable, and generally suceossful occasion of tho kind iu tlio history of tho trovornmont Moro pooplo wcro horo, and they enjoyod theniBolvoa bettor than over Uoioro. Tho festivities rrocooded without a hitch or disappointment from 'begin ning to end. But tho ohior signt was not what tho people saw, but the peo ple thomsolves. Never was thtro such a notablo gathering on this continent And in mero numbers, the crowds excelled anything known outside of a few exceptional gather ings, such as tho Philadelphia cen tennial. Tho multitude which facod President Cloveland to hoar his views, and bo witnossos to his covenant with tho nation, was perhaps tho largost body of citizens ever collocted in ono spot Experts differed widoly as to tho number, but many jiulgos of crowds estimated it as high as ono hundred thousand, or even higher. Fully a quartor of a million pooplo flanked tho procession, and at night tho same vast crowd choked tho broad acros of tho White Lot to soo tho fireworks. Tho ball was a popular, as well as ortistio triumph. Hero again tho pooplo crowded by thou sands in an unprecedont jam. "Cleveland's luck" stood him in good stead at his inauguration. The day was all that could bo desired, tho streets wero in perfect condition, and nothing was wanting to complete the comfort of thoso who marched and thoso who looked on. Ouo novel foaturo in tlio cere monies of inauguration day was lot ting the public got a peep for tho first time at an exocutivo session of the Senate. Tho Houso did not pass the Grant bill till after 11 o'clock. Tho President was at tho Capitol, and promptly sent an exocutivo com munication to the Senate naming Grant as tho "ono person" whom he wished on tho retired list as gouoral. But it was now half-past elovon, and it was manifestly impracticable to clear tho galleries and turn out tho distinguished guests who crowded the floor. Honco tho Senate, by un animous consent proceedod to execu tive business with open doors. But for somo reason thoso free and easy scenes which gossip pictures in exe cutive sessions did not take placo. Nobody Bmolced, no Senators put their feet on tho desks, no one told creamy storieB. The public is now in doubt as to whethor tho hilarities of executivo sessions are a myth, or whothor they were only partially iu itiated into thoir mystoriea after all. The Forty-oighth Congress has at last expired. Nominally it was two years old, but its conscious and wake ful days amounted in all to only 234. An unprecedented volume of business was prcsontcd to it for attention, but only a small proportion was acted up on. Among tho few important bills that escaped tho common fate wcro thoso establishing bureaus of labor, navigation and animal industry; to repeal tho test oath of 18G2; to reduce the rate of postage; to reraovo certain burdens on navigation; to provido a civil government for Alaska; to de claro forfeitod tho Texas Pacific land grant and to provido for tho ascer certainment of tho French spoliation claims. Among tho failures of note were tho Morrison horizontal tariff, the various banking bills, tho Blair educational bill, tho electoral conn, the bankruptcy bill, and tho silver suspension bill. L. Thero aro signs of improving con ditions in the groat coiumereiai otn uiU'jub au wiu jiv-v tors.

Awopob of tho laying of tho cor ner stouo of tho now capitol ot Aus tin on tho 2nd inst, tho Bollvillo Tinios has this to say of tho now edi fice: Tho nrcitectural stylo of tho now hmldinrr. as shown bv tho drawings, is classic, with modern troatmont tho outlines being suiUciontly broken to givo statoly appcaranco and to socuro proper contrast of light and shado. The various combinations of seiontifio principle employed to combiuo that simplicity, harmony and grandeur which alono aro approvod by culturod tasto. Tho dimonRions at groatost meas ure two CCUA foot loug, by 288 foot 10 inches wido. Tho buildiug is throo storios in height abovo tho basement, lumi.i n fourth or central story, running from tho north to tho south pediment Of all similar structures in America, !r. la onnnnd in nizo onlv to tho nation al capitol at Washington, D. C, aud is larger and nnor tuan 1110 wormnu roichstag or English parliament buildings. Tho extousivo system of pipes and appliances for Beworage, ventilation, steam heating, water, gas and electricity, la imbodod in tho liineslono bonoath and indoBod in mortar. The basement storv oxtonda suffi- oinnUv above the crrado lino to insure ventilation and sun lighting. Tho water table is a belt of rod Texas granite, iivo foot deep, oxtonding tho entire circumference of tho build iug. Toworing abovo all is the groat dome, which, with tho triumphal arch over tho south ontranco, aro tho dis tinctive features of tho design. Tho huRo of domo is about 130 feet abovo tho basement floor. At tho height of 150 foot is tho base of tho colon nade, formed around tho rotunda by lin?o bronzo columns, inclosing an open air promenado inferior to noth ing on tho continent Still abovo, at 1K0 foot and aeraiii at tho apex of tho domo, around tho foot of tho lantern, 250 feet high, are circular balusters, sficnrinD' oduu balconies, which aro roachod from winding stairways in the cupola. The contract calls tor nmoHtono in tho Hunorati'ucturo of tho building, but this legislature is seriously and favorably considering ft proposition to substitute Burnett granite, and it is hoiiod that such a substitution may bo found to tho intorcst of tho stato. Bv tho timo Grover Cleveland has beon a month in tho White House ho will doubtless have some apprecia tion of tho .meaning of Lincoln's words when, at tho boL'inninir of his Bocond torm, ho said to a prominent mnmhfir of Congress: Can't you and othors start a public sentiment in favor of making no ciiangos in oflicos except for good and sufficient cause? It Booms as though tho baro thought of going through again what I did tho first year here would crush mo. And to another about the samo timo ho said: "1 havo mado up my mind to mako very few changes in tlio offices in my gift for my second torm. I think now that I will not movo a Binglo man, oxcont for delinauencv. To removo a man is very easy, but when I go to fill hia place there are twenty appli cants, and of these I must make nine teen enemies.
