In the description occurs the follow ine: Entering signal, inner veil, three rap given in this jeculiar manner One, a short pause, then two in quick suc cession. Grip: Extend the hand with the thumb parallel with the fore finger and i close it to clasp hands with ringers without I locking the thumbs with a side pressure of the thumb on the outside thumbs still CAUSED BY JEALOUSY.

These are matters In which the country is greatly interested, and it ou dou't take some action I'm afraid 1 will have to call your attention to the sub ject again, and in a more impressive way than 1 did in my message." The member is puzzled to understand what the preident meant, !ut is of the Im pression that it was an extra session of con gress. He say c, however, that the presi dent may have intended to convey tiie idea that he would be more pronounced in his message to congress when it convenes in December ne.t Since the utterance of the president tills member has been feeling the pulse of the house, and says ttiat the president will have to do his worst, as tiiere is no earthly chance of changing the tariff at this session or in any way modifing the silver coinage act The New York and L Loul.
