An' her laff la like a singin' brook that bubbles as It passes Thro' the stuck-up tiger lilies, an' the purty smellin' grasses. An' I told her that I loved her, much as forty times a day, But she hadn't much time to bother, an' kept on with her crowihay. Wen I plumped right down afore her, plumb upon my very knees. She said: "CJit off my ric-rac, on' you're rump- lin' up my frieze." An' 1 1 tried to talk of love, an' things, an' told her I would die. Unless she smiled upon my soot. She simply said: "Oh, my!

If Mamma Vance could hare looked in then, she would have been undoubt edly astonished. Sadie sat on the Creat rolling head of the lounge, pound ing a pillow with emphasis as she spoke. Tho four boys were grouped variously about her, their cheeks rather red, their eyes rather bright, their heads thrown back indignantly. When tho long-suffei ing pillow had received its final thump, and Sadie, her white little feet sunk in its softness, had drawn herself up tropically to her full height, Kugeno asked hotly: "Whatever has put that nonsense into your head, Sadie?" "It's preposterousr' Jack stormed. Warm hearted littlo Fritz was in tears. 'Ith a lie!" ho wailed. Stanford said not a word, but his Hnrry tread up and down tho room fcpoko volumes for him. "Nonsense, I say!" Eugene repeated. angrily. "Who dared say so? Slight mother! Why, Sadie Adams, there isn't a. mother in tho world like ours. We'd 'do any thing on earth for her. I speak for tho crowd." "IIo thpeakth for me," cried Fritz again. "Do, you supposo we'd mope around here and actually lose our appetite for tho take of tho mother bird, if we didn't lovo and care for her?" Jack d IlllUiilrti. "1 jutht love ginger-bread," this from Frit., "and latht night I thimply couldn't endure it." "Oh, let tip on tho ginger-bread." Stanford cried. Ills tramp was not conquering tho irritation ho felt, "i-iook hero, Sadie, I demand, as does Kugeno, your reason for this this ac cusation!" Tho tramp had como to a halt. "Wo slight Marmee and make her unhappy! Who has dared hint it? Who has given you so ridiculous an idea?" Sadie's severe littlo face relaxed. Sho was tho stern accuser no longer. "15oys shako hands," sho said; "two at a time, please. I knew it couldn't be truo, but I had to satisfy my mind about it." "Well, just supposo you satisfy our minds!" Sanford snapped. He didn't look any too willing to overtures. "Oh!" Sadio exclaimed, accept her a moment- nry flush on her fair face. "Your authority, please," Jack said, loftily. Ho had an idea that he had read some such lofty demand in his history some place. "Your author ity!" "Auntio Vance," Sadio answered, demurely. Tho boys started its though they had received an argumentative knock down simultaneously. "Tho mater!" Marmee!" "The mompsy!" T.ea wbith!" Sadie, still demure, nodded a com prehensive "That's what I said" to tho four. "Oh, como, now, Sadie! This is ono of your tricks." "Yon can't make game of us. Cousin Sadio; wo know you too well." For answer Sadio drew from her pocket a much crumpled letter, and stepped with it across to the bright lamp-light of tho library tablo. "Html that," sho said, pointing out a portion of tho writing, so familiar to the four bovs "It wan one 01 mo iasi letters she wrote mo before I came home." And this was what the boys read: "Wo have decided to take our trip, Sadie, your uncle and I. It will be our first together in our wedded life, and I know it will do us both pood. I have been feeling urea ami worn lately. When tho boys were little fel lows, though they took up all my timo end thought, I never felt it. lhey rere so grateful and loving that it was real Pleasure to feel myself their daily necessity, their friend and helper- It is so different now, Sadio. They are pood boys, generous and high-principled, and yet many a time I choke with tears to feel that the entire love they cave me once is mine no longer I am afraid they have outgrown mo in a. way, as they have outgrown their VnfA-trousers and their childish de- pendenco upon roe. When they were little lads. I truly think they could not have 6lept without their good-night kisses to me. while now but I shall only hurt your kind little heart with this sort of letter. Of course they love mo. Sadie, they must! And it is only natural, I suppose, for boys, as they grow up, to loso their loving little wars. They are not like fills. If I had a daughter, it might be differ ent perhaps; but mother love is strong, and I foel fairly starved sonr timos; even littlo Iritz forgets to snuggle up to mamma's knee as he once did, and to pat her tired old hands. It has mado me feel like a machine, though the duties I once had were heavy compared with the slight demand upon my time now." Then followed details as to the ar rangements of the trip, the friend who had volunteered to keep houso, and expressions of gladness that Sadie, too, would bo home, to brighten thing9 up for the dear big boys. The dear big boys had grown rather misty about tho eyes. Sadie suddenly refolded up tho letter and caught up her hat. "There's Lou at the gate. Good-bye, boys. Forgive me being entirely frank with you. I'll see you again about this business." When sho had gone the boys were singularly silent. "You will oblige me. Jack, if you'll fall on mo and break all my bones!" Stanford said slowly. Jack was "the biggest of tho 01 r nmonp tho bova ana weipneu a hundred and forty. "I could crawl through a knot-holo." he replied. "No you couldn't," Eugene said, and though it was a favorite joke, nobody smiled. Fritz, with his eleven rears, his dimple and his"lithp" hail disappeared. inero was hot ginger-bread again when tho tea-bell ranp, and it seemed to him loss endurable than before "What was tho matter with tho boys?" Mrs Reman asked her hus band that night. "It's never worth while to study tho motives of tho boy, my dear. The goat, tho spider, the kangaroo, are all laid down in natural history, but the boy" and he wiped his hands with a gesture full of meaning. It is on my mind, I don't care," Mrs. Reman reiterated. Whenever she didn't care, sho was taking things seriously. "I promised their good mother that I'd see to those boys the house was a minor matter in fact. must investigate the trouble to-mor row, for trouble there is, I am sure They hadn't even appetites. Think what an anomaly, a boy without an appetite! Mrs. Vance said hot ginger bread would comfort them in any dis tress. Why, Arthur," and tho little lady looked quite despairing, "only one of them touched it, Stanford, and he choked and left the table." Trouble indeed! The boys pretended to sleep at once that night. They had nothing: to sav to each other. Each supposed the others asleep. Each tried to lie very quiet and each groaned at tho thought that the dear patient mother had been deeply hurt at their treatment of her, when they would have resented the slightest annoyance caused her by any other. Love her! Each groaned harder at the reflection that his own conduct was to blame for her doubt of it. Suddenly there was a stir in the far corner. Fritz had bounced out of bed and down upon his knees. There was a dim light in tho room. Three boys might have been discerned raised upon their elbows, staring. Fritz athia prayers a second time! "Shows his good sense," said Stan ford, in a subdued whisper to Eugene, with whom ho slept. "Well, I've had that out," said Eu gene. "Did some good, too. No mat ter how dull my head is, as sure as I get to my knees, tho Lord sends me some spick and span idea. I'm going to sleep now. I'll divulge the plan to morrow." Sadie came again next day. "I've an ideuV Eugene exclaimed. with some force. 'Dew tell!" and Sadie laughed, mer rily. "Not all by yourself, Eugene?" Well, no, not all by myself," and Eugeno looked wisely at Standford. It came from our best Friend last night. Let mo tell you, Sadie, wo are going to do an old German trick to begin our new conduct toward mamma. We aro going to give her a real littlo demonstration as a welcome homo. I remember tho time she got back from that district mission convention and we were all playing ball on tho lot, and didn't even come in to see her till tea time. It wasn't because we didn't love her; it was " "Recauso we were blind fools," Stanford interrupted. "Rut hero's a point, boys," Sadie said, suddenly. "Auntie musn't know that I have had any hand in this sight-to-the-blind business. I'm not going even to hint .any help to you about your welcome to her. Sho must not sus poet mo. It must bo all your own per forming, straight from your own hearts!" With that she marched off down tho gravel path to tho gate. "Of course!" shouted four boys after her. "Wearent going to have mamma thinking we have poeded lessons on how to love her. lrust us to do it alone," and Jack tossed his head in concert with three other heads. It was the sweetest time of the year in Vernon, but October days were com ing on ana the flowers were growing scarce. "Flowers we must have!" the boys had said, and Fritz hung over tho lato roses, tho sweet Alyssum and Chrysanthemums, as though his fond est hopes lay in their blooms. Eugene, who had graduated and was at work on a salary, was keeping some very bright dollars up in his collar box for a very bright purpose Jack and Stanford still in school decided upon cue thing they could do, at least. They could earn money after school hours, and between them hire old Aunt Dinah to make a great cake, with "Welcome on it m chocolate frosting. "I've thought of something new, Jack exclaimed, rushing in, quite breathless, one evening. "You know how mamma has admired Mrs. Green's dress window seats. I mean to rig one up and have it all ready for her when she gets back." "I hat conies in the line or my plans," Eugene appended, with eager ness. "I meant to get her one of those pretty low sewing tables, with a chair to suit. We will fix her room up Jim- dandy!" "What can be the matter with those boys?" Mrs. Reman said again. "Jack, whom I've always thought rather fat and lazy, is working like a beaver on a long window-seat upstairs, in which his mother may lay her dresses at full length without ( rumpling them. He has sisked me a dozen questions about the best kind of padding for the top of it, and tho prettiest color to cover it with 'something warm and bright, for that's what the mater likes. I never saw such boys!" She repeated that statement on the night when the telegram came saying, "Re h.-me on the 3:30 train to-morrow." The boys were quite wild all the fol- I lowing day. How they did work! ( Over the doorway within the poroh I there grew under their swift fingers a great green arch with Mamma Vance's I initials in chrysanthemums on it. The roses and sweet alyssum went into vases for the tea-table, the library and mamma s bed-room. "What a knack you have, Fritz," Mrs. Reman said, in surprise, for the flowers wero beautifully arranged, and Fritz, his black eyes shining, was putting his very soul into his loving finger-tips. He had emptied his small bank to buy, for the returning mother, two of the loveliest winter roses the florist's hot-house held. These, their pots decked in green, occupied places of honor beside the great cake on the tea-table, and the Bon Silene bore amid its graceful leaves a card on which in Fritz's bold writing wero seen the words: "Sweets to the sweet, from your loving Fritz." It was a chilly night though the day had been clear. There were soft-sput tering fires throwing up their merry flames in the gaily-decked library and the mother's pretty room. Just at five, Jack and Eugene were taking their last looks there. "How she will like that window seat. It is pretty, if I do say it. How the firelight brightens it up!" "How lovely the roses look!" 'How shiny llio polished table is!" "Doesn't the chair seem easy?" And then with a final touch of care ful boyish hands here and there, they joined Fritz and Stanford at the gate. "It's like tho story of the Prodigal son, only he stayed at home in this case, and there wero four of him," Jack said, a little huskily. "I'll tell you this, boys," Eaid Eu gene, stoutly, "I've been thinking about this thing, and either thinking or praying has brought mo more new ideas. I don't believe any fel low ever gets too big to love his mother, and I don't believe, if he's an honest, manly fellow, that it's go ing to take away from his manliness ono whit to show that he loes her. Bless her heart! Three cheers for the mater. 'Rah, 'rah 'rah!" The ring of the cheery hurrahs sounded over the frosty air and reached the hack around the corner. There was a hard little pain at Mamma Vance's heart. "They are playing ball again," she thought. "They've forgotten we are coming." And then of a sudden they had reached the gate, and four bright-eyed boys were hug ging her, and patting her gray hair us they did when they were the very lit tlest fellows. "We've been as dull as owls with out you, you darling," Stanford said, taking the smaller valises, while Eugene offered her his arm grandly. Fritz and Jack could only help Mr. Vance with the shawl-straps and tho big valise, and prance like girl down tho path behind "the moth-er-b!r"il, waiting to soo her surprise and delight over the arch, the wel come, the flowers, and the general festivity of the dear old home. Next day when Sadio happened to drop in, sho started in amazement. untie Vance! You are looking ten years younger, i tuinic you uiu need a trip!" 'It wasn't the trip, Sadie; it was the boys. You remember what I wrote you? Irjjvas all my silly imagination. They do love me! They were so glad to see me! Sit down, dear, and let me tell you all about it; and as pretty Sadio dropped down upon tho dainty window-seat, she couldn't help saying with her glad little laugh, "I told y,u so, Auntio, I told you so!" Maudt llittcnhouse, in Interior. A RARE CURIOSITY. Iteniiirkal) Specimen of Coral From tlie I'liilipjiino Island. Judge E. W. Knott, deputy superin tendent of the State Insurance Depart ment, received recently from Alexander II. Webb, United States Consul at Ma nila, Philippine Islands, a curiosity that is exceedingly rare; a coral for mation found only in the Philippine Archipelago, and is known to the na tives as "llower baskets," though why such an appellation should be con ferred on it is not quite clear. It is quite different from any coral that has ever been seen by those who have been fortunate enough to view the speci men which the Judge values so highly. The specimen is conical in shape, hav ing a base of nearly two inches in di ameter and rises to a height of about eight inches, growing smaller towards its top, where it ends in a tolerably sharp point. The base was formed on a smooth ledge of rock, and the archi tects of its construction had begun by laying cross sections of a formation re sembling finest spun glass. These are laid very carefully and evenly across both ways, and are seemingly inter laced and plaited with similar forma tionsthey could hardly be called fibers, running from top to bottom of this novel lilliputian castle. The work rises in most beautiful shape, growing gradually smaller, until within about three inches of the apex, when evi dently tho builders found on their hands more of the longitudinal laces than were needed in their work, and they were dropped out as the work progressed, and stand about the toy, forming a sort of tuft around the whole. These lacings extend about one inch above the top, and contrary to usual formation of coral, they are pliable and when bent assume an upright position on being released. It would no impossible lor ma chine work or the work of humnn hands to keep up the symmetry better than these minute anlmalcuUe have done. Tho work resembles the finest lace, the cross bars fashioned as beau tifully as possible. In looking through the cross bars one can see the remains of some small marine animal, probably a crawfish, as a tiny claw or feeler. similar to the ones such animals are Adorned with, is plainly discernible. The coral is a pure white and forms a most beautiful ornament, not a spot or blemish on any portion of it. t. Louis prjubli.

There is less over-feeding than under-feeding done, but, unfortunately, the over-fed animals are the very ones which ought to be fed with the most wisdom. I live in the Miami Valley, where the Poland China hog origi nated, and have been for many years surrounded by farmers who raised pigs expressly for shipping as breeding stock and to show at the fairs. More than one thousand pigs a year were for many years shipped from this sta tion alone, and the number sent out annually from two or three countiea would amount to many thousands. Nine out of ten of these pigs were fat enough for the butcher and fattened wholly on corn. Because a part of the shippers did this the others (even those who knew it was unwise) said they must do the same. The buyers were partly to blame, for they wanted the pigs they had paid a high price for and had shipped a long distance, to look so well that their neighbors would be impressed with their beauty. It suited the shippers exactly, for fat would cover up defects in form, and so it came to be the practice to fatten hogs on corn before shipping them. As a result, three-fourths of the men who were engaged in this business have lost their hogs from cholera and abandoned it. Another notable exam ple of the folly of over-feeding is found in short-horn cattle. The beef ele ment has been developed in this stock so that for early maturity and econ omy of flesh production the breed has never been surpassed and rarely equaled, but breeders have in feeding their breeding stock carried this to ex cess, and among the show herds there has been so many barren animals that it has become a custom to warrant the animal to "be a breeder" when it is sold. Any one who has attended the fairs and seen the show herds padded with fat knows that these animals have been fattened expressly to show, and thoughtful, intelligent men ought to know that of all stock in the world breeders ought to be fed for the de velopment of bone and muscle rather than fat. It is a truth which can not be impressed too strongly on the minds of farmers that young growing animals and breeding animals and breeding stock should never be fed for fat, but always for bone and muscle. I have seen many valuable young jou rnals injured by excessive corn-feed-in, f-. Now, I do not want any of the read ers to jump to the conclusion that 1 am not in favor of liberal feeding, for I am and practice it always, but I know that many farmers are losing money by injudicious feeding. The margin of profit in farming is small in these days of low prices, and we need to act intelligently in all that we do and should be able to give a reason for every act we perform. It is not the man who feeds the most grain who has the most profitable stock, but the one who adapts the food to tho purpose desired to be attained and who by system and regularity keeps his stock in the best condition. There is food enough wasted by unscientific feeding on many farms to make the owners comparatively rich in a score of years, if they were wise enough to save it. Waldo T. Brown, in Philadel phia Press. THE ROUTINE WAY. Small Kssentials That Are Very Necessary to Home Comfort. It ia very easy to take care of the picturesque part of housework to ar range tho flowers and the pictures in the parlor and the china in the dining room and the bright tins in the kitch en. Rut it is a vastly more laborious matter to attend to the daily routine of the household in those matters that do not appeal to the taste or the im agination to watch servants, and yet not appear to watch them, or to guard against tho sources of contamination and uncleanliness which are forever cropping up oven in the most carefully cared for household. The secret of perfect housekeeping lies chiefly in routine and system, and they mean drudgery. It has been said of old that new civilizations are less governed by routine methods than old estab lished nations. Law and orifcr in pioneer colonies aro apt to be under mob sway, and from the housekeeping of a government tho family house keeping takes its pattern. As a rule, American households are hardly yet amenable to the strict routine system of the British household. This is due in part to the servant question, but again, the difficulties of the servant question in this country are due to the want of system in the matter of refer ences, given and received. For th comfort of every individual in th household, it is necessary that th hours of rising and for meals should be regular. It is one of the small essentials very necessary to universal comfort. Servants should have their certain duties to perform at certain hours, and should be made to understand that they should be performed at the time given and not at another time. The washing should have its set day as is the com mon rule, and the ironing should be done and folded by a certain time in the week, making allowance in the time given for delays caused by stormy weather so that no excuse of storms or other hindrance should set it back be yond the limit given. This can easily be done. Two regular baking days should be set apart in the week, as also regular sweeping days and days for cleaning windows and brushing blinds, and for scrubbing kitchen clos ets and floors and cellar. Housekeep ers should arrange that the table is cleared and the dining-room dusted after each meal and before a certain hour. If it is clearly understood by the maid of all work or the kitchen maid that the dining-room must be swept, cleared and dusted before nine o'clock in the morning, she will easily drift into this order and hardly realize that sho is working under routine. An immense trmount of work is lost by a servant's flying from one object to an other or beginning one piece of work before another is accomplished Thorough system will abolish this and servants themselves will early find that they have more leisure on their hands by doing their work in an orderly manner. As a rule, in families where such a system is instituted, servants remain a longer time and in greater content than in an easy-going house hold where matteis slide in a slipshod way.- JV. T. Tribune.

The questions between Great Britain and the United States relating to the rights ot American fishermen under treaty and international comity in the territorial watets of Canada and Newfoundland, I regret to say, are not yet satisfactorily adjusted. These matters were fully treated in my mes sage to the Senate of February 20, l$8T,whioh, to gether with a convention concluded under my authority with Her Majesty's Government on the lota of February last, for the removal of ail causes of misunderstanding, was submitted by me for the approval of the Senate. This treaty having been rejected by the Senate, I trans mitted a mecsage to the Congress on the 23d of August last, reviewing the transactions and submitting tor considera tion certain recommendations for leg islation oonoerning the important questions involved. Afterwards, on the 12th ot Septem ber, in response to a resolution of the Senate, 1 again communicated fully all the informa tion in my possession as to the action of the government of Canada affecting the commer cial relations between the Dominion and the United States, including the treatment of American fishing vessels in the ports and waters of British America. The communica tions have all been published, and therefore opened to the knowledge of both Houses of Congress, nrthough two were addressed to the Senate alone. Comment upon or repetition of their contents would be super fluous, and I am not aware that any thing has since occurred which should be added to the facts therein stated. Therefore, I merely re peat, as applicable to the present time, the ttutrraest h will be found in my message to Vhe Senate of September Vi last: "That sinse March 3, 1S37. no cuse has been reported to the Department of State wherein complaint has been made of unfriendly or unlawful treatment of American vessels on the part of the Canadian authorities, in which repara tion was not promptly and satisfactorily ob tained by the Tjnited States Consul-Gent ral at Halifax.1'. H iving essayed lu the discharge of my duty to procure by negotiation the settle ment of a 3ong-standing cause of dispute, and to remove a constant menace to the good rela tions of the two countries, and continuing to hold the opinion that the treaty of February last, which failed to receive the approval of the Senate, did supply "a satisfactory, prac tical and final adjustment on a basis honorable and just to both parties of the difiltrult and vexed question to which it related,"' and hav ing subsequently and unavailingly recommend ed other legislation to Congress which I hoped would suffice to meet the exigency created by the rejection of the treaty. I now again invoke the earnest and immedate attention of the Congress to the condition of this important question as it now stands before them und the country, ana lor the settlement 01 which l am deeply solicitous. GOVERNMENT REVENUE. The revenues of the Government for the year ending June at, 1H8!), ascertained for the quarter ended September 30, 18SS, and estimated for the remainder of the time, amount to M77,OJO,(M), and the actual and estimated ordinary expen ditures for the same year aro 'J73,0iiO,O00, leav ing an estimated surplus of 101.iKM,000. The estimated receipts for the year ending June 30. 1890, are T377.000,o00, and the estimated ordinary expenditures for tho same time are -75,707,4S.3, showing a surplus of 1101,23-!,-511.00. The foregoing statements of surplus do not take into account the sum necessary to be expended to meet the requirements of the Sinking-Fund act, amounting to moro than I7,00,000 annually. The cost of collecting the customs revenues for the last fiscal year was2.4l per cent. ; for the year 188.J it was 3.77 per cent. The excess of Internal revenue taxes collect ed during the last fiscal year over those collect ed for tho year ended June 30, 1887, was $5,489,, 174.2ft, and the cost of collecting this revenue decreased from 3.4 per cent in 1887, to leas than 3.2 per cent, for the last year. The tax collected on oleomargarine was 723,!MS.Oi for the year ending June 30, 1837, and &ti 1,130. 84 for the following year. THE BOND FTTItCHASES. The requirements of the Sinking Fund act Have been met lor the year ended June 30, 18-8, and for the current year also, by the purchase of bonds. After complying with this law, as positively required, ana Donas sum cient for that purpose had been bought at a premium, it was not deemed prudent to further expend the surplus in such purchases until the authority to uo so should be more explicit. Daily purchases of bonds were commenced on the 23d day of April, 1883. and have continued until the present time. By this plan, bonds of the Government not yet due have been pur- chasea. up to ana incluaing the 3 rtn aiv of .No vember. 1SS8. amounting to !),7d ,4Q0. the premium paid thereon amounting to 17,508, 613.08. The premium added to the principal of these bonds represents an investment yielding about two per cent, interest for the time they still had to ran: and the saving to the Government, represented by the difference between the amount of interest at two per cent, upon tho sum paid for principal and premium, and what it would have paid for interest at the rate speci fied in the bonds, if they had run to their ma turity, is about 27,165,X!0. 'At first sight." says the President, "this would seem to be a proiltable and sensible transaction on the part of the Government, but as suggested by the Secretary of the Treasury, tne surplus thus expended for the purchase of bonds was money drawn from the people in excess of any actual need of the Government, and was so expended rather than allow it to remain idle in the treasury. If this surplus, underjthe operation of just and equita ble laws, had been left in the hands of the people, it would have been worth in their bus ness at least six per cent, per annum Deducting from the amount of interest upon the principal and premium of these bonds tov tuo Uujt; bi.y 1I tu . lu., ... ate ul six per cent., the saving of two per cent.' made for the people by the purchase of such bonds, the loss will appear to be .r5,7() 1,0. 0. This calculation would seom to demonstrate that if ejeessive and unnecessary taxation is continued and tho Government is forced to pursue a pol icy of purchasing its own bonds at the premiums, which it will be neces sary to pay. the loss to tho people will bo hundreds of millions of dollars. Since the purchase of bonds was undertaken as men tioned, nearly all that have been offered were at last accepted. It has been made quite ap parent that the Government was in danger of being subjected to combinations to raise their price. Notwithstanding the sum thus paid out, the surplus in the treasury on the 30th of No vember, 18S8, was t"i2,2')4,GI0.01, after deducting bout 20,000,0 KJ just drawn out for the pay ment of pensions. TOE WAR DEPARTMENT. The Secretary of War reports that the army, at the date of the last consolidated returns, consisted of 2,lK!t officers and 21,. Mil enlisted men. Tho actual expenditures of the War De partment for the fiscal year ended June 3 , Ihhs, amounted to HI, l(i, 107.07, ot which sum 9,158, 6l4.ti3 was expanded for public works, including river and harbor improvements. We shall have our own gun factory next year. Civil-Service reform is recommended for tho army service. General Sheridan's death is lamented as an irreparable loss. Kighty-three men, 170 women, 70 boys and B9 girls, all Indians, are held as prisoners ot war. The Indian schools aro doing nicely. PENSIONS REDUCE THE BURPLtlS. The number of pensioners added to the rolls during the fiscal year ended June 30, 18SS, is 6 ',2"2, and increase of pensions was granted in 45,718 cases. The names of 15,73) pensioners were dropped. The number of persons receiv ing pensions was 452, 557 ; of these there were 8 ii survivors of the war of 1812; 10,7s7 widows of those who served In that war; IG.otS) sold ers of the Mexican war and 5.104 widows of said soldiers. One hundred and two different rates of pensions are paid to these beneficiaries, ranging from tS to -lB.Gt) per month. The amount paid for pensions dur ing the fiscal year was JTrt.775,8 d.92, l)' injnn increase over the preceding year of 5,3 281.22. The expenses attending the maintenance and operation of the Pension Bureau during that period were 3, 20 ..." .'4 07. making the entire ex penditures of the bureau 8i, 038, 36. 57, being 61 '.4 peV cent, of the gross income and nearly 31 percent, of the total expenditures of the Gov ernment during tho year. "I am thoroughly convinced that our general pension laws should be revised and adjusted to meet ns far as possible in the light of our ex perience all meritorious cases," says Mr. Cleveland. "Tha fact tbat 1 r2 different rates of pensions are paid c:n not, in my opinion, be made consistent wun jusi.ice io me pensioners or to the Government, and the numerous pri vate pension bills that are passei predicated upon the imperfection of general laws while they Increase, in many cases, existing inequal ity and injustice, lend additional force to the recommendation for a revision of the general laws on ttrs subject." THE NAVT. The reconstruction of the navy is being push- A forward rapidly. The Charleston. Bal timore, Yorktown. Vesuvius and Petrel are in the water and rapidly approaching completion. The Philadelphia. San Francisco, Newark, Bennington, Concord and the Hrreshnff tor pedo boat are under contract. Kleven vessels in all will be incorporated in the American navy within the next, twelve months. Notwithstanding the large expenditures for new construction and the additional labor they involve, the total ordinary or current expendi ture of the department for the three years, ending June 3 , 1H8S, are less by more than twenty per cent , than such xpendilures for the thr:e years, ending June 30. l8i. THE TOSTAt, SERV CE. The nnmrer of post-offices on July 1, Itsfl was 57.870, an increase of 6,124 in three years and of 2.219 for the last fiscal year. Tho latter mentioned increase is classified as follows: New tngland States, 5: Middle States, 1X1; Southern States and Indian Territory (41). J,46; the states and Territories of the Pacific coast, 1 the ten States and Territories of the Wssl and Northwest, 435: D strict of Columbia, 2: total, 2.219. The railway mail and free - delivery service and money-order servut have developed; so has the foreign ser vice. DEPARTMENT Of TttE tNTERIOrt. ThOifh prior to March. 1hk5. there had been but sn convictions in th Territories r.f Utah and Ii.Sho, under the laws of lH6i and ls3, pun is'.i.nl fx-'' c:m.v and ul.iwfal co hatdtatioa as crimes, there have t--ri tnrv. that date nearly si hMlivd Convictions under these laws and the statutes of im7, and the opinion is expressed that osder such a Brm and vigilant execution of these laws and the advance of ideas opposed to the torbld dm pract-cs, polygamy within the Unite! States is virtually at an end. PCBLIC LANDS. "I con not too strenuously insist on the im portance of proper measures to insur right diSjHfs'tio,n of our public lands." the President says, "not only as a matter of present justice, tut in forecast of Vii consequences to future venerations. The broad. rich acres Of our ogr cultural p'.a -r.s have been long preserved bv nature to becoma her un trauimeled pift to a people civilized and free, upon wh ch should rest, in well-dis' ribut ed ownership the numerous home ?,f -litrhtanuL eoual and fraternal citizens They ; e.itne to National possesion with the warnina example in our eves of the entail miquit -s of ' landoa proprietorship w.lieil giurf munu e have uermitte 1 sna : u ur.rr. o have to excuse for the v.oUt.oa of Tiiinrlpl's ruptjly tauput by ffimm Bud timuAi, eur tor l4 oliuwawe of. vrttext which have sometimes exposed onr land to colossal greed, Laws which open a door to fraudulent acquisition, or administration which permits and favors apacious seizure by a favored few of extended areas that manv should en- Joy, are accessory to offences against our Na tional weiiare ana nutnanity not to be too severely condemned or punished. ALIjOTMENT IH BEVEHAT.TV TO INDIANSk The condition of our Indian population con tinues to improve, and the proofs multiply that the transforming change so much to be desired which shall substitute for barbarism enlightenment iTtid civilizing education, is in favorable progress. Our relations with these people during the year have been disturbed by no serious disorders, but rather marked by a better realization of their truo interests, and Increasing confidence and good will. These conditions testify to the value of the higher tune ui cuiisiurittiiuu uuu iiuuianiLy wnicn lias governed the later methods of dealing with them, and commend Its continued observance. Allotments In severalty have been made on some reservations until all those entitled to land thereon have hal their shares assigned and the work is still continued. But no agency for the amelioration of this people appears to me so promising as the ex tension urged by the secretary of such com plete facilities of education as shall at the ear liest possible day embrace all teachable Indian youth of both sexes aud retain them with a kindly and beneficent hold until their characters are formed and their faculties trained to the sure pursuit of some form of useful Industry. Tho capacity of the Indian no longer needs detnoust ration. It is established. It remains to make the most of it, and when that shall be done the curse will be lifted, the Indian race saved, and the sin of their oppression redeemed. The time of its accomplishment depends upon tho spirit and justice with which it shall be prosecuted. It can not be too soon for the Indian nor for the interests and pood name of the Nation. The average attendance of Indian pupils on the schools increased by over nine hundred during the year, and the total enrollment reached 15,212. The cost of maintenance was not materially raised. The number of teach able Indian youth is now estimated at 40.0"0. er nearly three times the enrollment of the schools. It is Dcitevea tne ODStacies in tne way of instruction are all surmountable, and that the necessary expenditures would be a meas ure of economy. THE SIOUX RE3EUVATION. The Sioux tribes on the great reservationby Dakota refused to assent to the act passed ol the Congress at Its last session for opening a portion of their lands for settlement, notwith standing modification of the terms was sug gested which met most of their objections. Their demand is for immediate payment of the full price of 41.25 per acre for the entire body of land, the occupancy of which they are asked to reliuqtiish. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE. The Departmenirof Agriculture has continued with a good measure of success, its efforts to develop the processes, enlarge the results, and augment the profits of American husbandry. It has collected and distributed practical infor mation, introduced aud tested new plants, che.-ked the spread of contagious dis eases of farm animals, resisted the ad vance of noxious insects and destructive fun gus growths and sought to secure to agricult ural labor the highest reward of effort, and the fullest immunity from loss. Its records of the year show that the season of 1888 fcas been one of medium production. A generous supply of the demands of consumption has bsen assured and a surplus for exportation, moder ate in certain prbduces and bountiful in others, wiil prove a benefaction alike to buyer anil growo?. TlX V RO-PN BtT MONIA. Four years ago it was found that the great cattle Industry of the country was endangered and those engaged in it were alarmed at the rapid extension of the European lung plague of pleuro-pneumonia. Serious outbreaks existed in Illinois, Missouri and Kentucky, and in Tennessee animals affected were held in quar antine. Five counties in New York and from one to four counties in each of the States of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland were almost equally affected. With this great danger upon us and with the contagion already In the channels of commerce, with the enor mous direct and indirect losses already be.ng caused by it. and when only prompt and energetic action could be successful, thers were in none of these States any laws authorizing this department to eradicate the malady or giv ing the State officials power to co-operate with it for this purpose. The department even lacked both the requisite appropriation and authority. By securing State co-operation in connection with authority from Congress the work of eradication has been pressed successfully, and this dreaded disease has been extirpated from the Western States and also from the Eastern States, with the except! m of a few restricted areas which are still under supervision. The danger has been removed and trade and com merce have been freed from the vexatious State restrictions which frere deemed neces sary for a time. BUOAR-MAKINO EXPERIMENT. During the past four yours tlie process of dif fusion, as applied to the manufacture of sugar from sorghum and sugar cane, lias oc-en intro duced into this country, and fully perfected by the experiments carried on by the Department of Agriculture. This process is now uni versally considered to be the most eco nomical one. and it is through that the sorghnm sugar industry has been established upon a firm basis and the road to it future suc cess opened. The adoption of this diffusion process is also extended in Louisiana and other sugar-producing parts of the country, and will, doubtless, soon bo the only method employed for the extraction of sugar from the cane. FOOD ADULl ERATION. An exhaustive study has also, within the same period, been undertaken of the subject of food auulteration and ifce best analytical ip".i oas for detecting it. A part of tuo results of this work has alreaay been punnnea Dy uie department, which, with the matter in course of preparation, will make tlie most complete treatise on mat subject mat nas over uueu pub lished ia any country. LAND GRANTS TO RAILROADS. The adjustment of the relations between the Government and the railroad companies which hnvo received land giants and the guaranty of the public credit in am oi the construction oi their roads should receive early attention. The report of a majority of the commis sioners appointed to examine the affa rs and indebtedness of these roads in which they fayor an extension of the time for tho payment of such indebtedness, in at least ono case where the corporation appears to be able to comply with well guarded and exact terms of such extension and the reinforcement of theiropinion by gentlemen of undoubted busi ness judgment and experience appointed to protect the interests of the Government as di rectors of said corporation, may well lead to the belief that such an extension would be to the advantage of the Government. Tho sub ject should be treated as a business proposi tion, with a view to a final realization of it s in debtedness by the Government, rather than as a question to be decided upon prejudice or by way of punishment for previous wrong-doing. DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. The report of the Commissioners of the Dis trict of Columbia, with its accompanying docu ments, gives in detail the operation of the sev eral departments of the District Government, and furnishes evidence that the financial afTairs of the District are at present in such satisfactory condition as t) justify tlm com missioners in submitting to Congress es timates for desirable and needed improve ments. The commissioners reoommend cer tain legislation which, in their opinion, is nec rssnry to advance tho Interests of tho District. I invite your special attention to their request for such legislation as wiil enable tho com missioners without delay to collect, digest and properly arrange the laws by which the Dis trict is governed, and which are now embraced in several collections, making them available only with great difficulty ar.d labor. The sug gestions they make touching desirable amend ment to "the law relating to licenses granted for carrying on the retail traf fic in spirituous liquors; to the observance ot Sunday ; to the proper iisJessment and collec tion of taxes; to the speedy punishment ol minor offenders, and to the management and control of the reformatory and charitable in stitutions supported by Congressional appro priations are commended to careful considera tion. The consciousness that I have presented but an imperfect statement of the condition of our country and its wants occasions no fear that any thing omitted is not known and ap preciated by the Congress upon which rost the responsibility of intelligent lsgislation in behalf of a grat nation and a confid ing peo ple. As public servants we shall do our duty well if we constantly guard thn rectitude of our intentions, maintain unsullied our love of country and with unselfish purpose strive for the pUe good. Gkoveb. Cleveland. 'There is much inoranoo in many of thone mountain counties," Kaid a liaptict orator at Clarksburg, W. Va. 'A man was riding through McDowell County on his way to tho court-house. Ho met an old lady and asked her tha way to the county seat. Sho replied: 'I did not know that tho county had any seat.'" Then ho added: That re minds me of an officer traveling throufjh the country during tho war. He aaked an old man what was tho population or his county. He replied: "I drn't know; it is over on Tug Fork.

"The cares of this world, and the deceit fulness of riches, choko the word." "Well," thinks our impecunious friend, "here at least is a peril that I am secure from; for I do not get near enough to riches to bo deceived thereby. You had better carry that textta the millionaires. " In all which he shows himself under a total mistake. Those who have tried both extremes assure us that riches havo no such power of deceiving close at hand as they have in the distance. The man who wishes ho was rich is apt to bo tho deluded man, while ha who has pot his wish is ia a fair way to be "dis illusionized." The rich man finds it no harder to go through the needle's eye than "he that trust in riches" and ouo can do this hi,9t on a very small cash capital indeed. S. S.
