Tn Forty-eighth Congress died hard.
81111, there is something cheering in the fact that it died nil the snroe. $144,600, of tho nmonnt appropriated by the civil appropriation bills it to be expanded in pubhc building in this State. TUrrtKAKNTATivE ULANUtut Missouri, sings 'Tho Sliver Churn" with too tnrch fervency for Mr. Cleveland eoiulort. Swaik was a voluntcor officer. It is always agreed among iho West Point men lit the army Hint the volunWcr men must go. Tnr, construction cf tho Cnblnel li confidently relied upon to show lliut Mr. Tllden'a health Is considerable better thnn usual. MAitcn , 1889, William M. Kvnrts, of New York, will be inaugurated Pres ident of tho United' States. Mnrk this down in your scrap books, plenso. Caul Scnt'itz, referring to his rccont vNit to Grover Cleveland, said ho bus no.axo to grind. Sehurx Ins merely n rip. saw which he wanted" to get filed. Fitz IIcom l.r.r. and a lot of Virginia militia drescd in gray divided tho hon ors and the applatiso at Washington Wednesday with Cleveland and Hem) rlok. Took old Missouri is booming along toward civilisation at n pretty lively para. She hat Tindioatud Colonel Frank James and repealed tho tux on dogs, all within three weeks, without turning a hnir. In the House at Jefferson Thursday the resolution to submit the question of State aapllnl' removal to a vote of the people was dufuutud. This ends the matter for tho present, but not for very long. Masking, tho new Secretary of the Treasury, has novur been regarded as statesman; but ho obtained his rcputa tton as a financier when' ho draw from the New York troasury 381,500 in two years to run his paper. One of tho last aula of tho Forty eighth Cbugress was to voto 913,600 year for the- support of (Jen. Grant JThte was-done by means of a bill enalil ing- tlio Presrd'ent and1 Scnato to restore tt blm his rank as Gcnornl, and to put bim on the retired list with the full pay of that rank. The Innugiiral. Grover Cleveland, the first Demo cratic President lor twenty-eight years, was duly Inaugurated on Mareh 4th. Ilrj Inaugural addrcaj wuu delivered n stiict accordance with Iho program, and Is welt written, bnt coutalns noth ing new, original or brilliant ; and there is no doubt but thu wholo document expresses the ideas ol its author, but we fear his ideas will never bo earned Into practical woiklngs, only so far as to that part which lefcrs to the surplus In tho treasury, whluh tho Picsident says should not bo allowed to aucumiilaio m the treasury ." In this the Fresiiletu Is strictly Democratic; tho rational nomocracy U strictly opposed to tho accumulation of a surplus In ttie trcas ury vaults. Ho wants tho finaneoi ol tho government to be kept upon a sound nd financial basis, but places the fman clal department of tho government in tho handi of a man not only inexpe tlenced butoiio of the most notud pollli cal bummers In the nation, who knows no more about national finances than a hull kuows how to conduct A china hop. He wants no unnecessary tax tloa in tho collection of the rotcnue; but the Interests of capital Invested In American Industries and of worklngmcn employed in them, to bo duly regarded; which means, Free trade or Protection; just as you pleatc. Tho public lands should bo preserved for settlement, and tho red men should be treated as wards of the government, and educated with a view to becoming citizens. Ho wants polygamy repressed. He is opposed to tho immigration ol the Chlnc-e. He wants business principles applied to public affairs, ami to this end civil ser vice reform should bo enforced. It was supposed with good roasi.n that President Cleveland would im prove tho opportunity to make such a caudid andjcxpllclt exposition of hii views, wishes and purposes, that tho country would not have any further doubt In that connection but Instead re has delivered nn inaugural that is cautiously evasive, indefinite and uni forming. With tho Incoming of Grover Cleve land and tho Democratic party, tho Republican party steps out ; not by the PRACTICAL FliOIUCUITUUE How to Miuihro 'Window IMnnta. BY MllS. niKIIKHICKS. Tho requirements lor thu successful management of window plants aro neither numerous nor difficult, yet as a rule moic disappointments and failures result than In any other branch of amateur gnrdeniug. Onu of Iho first requirements is a genuine lovo for pluntd, without which the many neces sary little attcutious are sure to be omitted, and thu plants wilt suffer ac cordingly. It may be stated as a guld Ing ruin that tho greater tho caro the greater tho stisceas rnd satisfaction. The majority of plants require all tho light it is posslblo to glvo them, vtith as much sutuhitio as thu position and structure of tho window will admit :ns a rule, thoso plants cxposod to morning riiuuhino do better than thoc exposed to tho afternoon sun only. This applies particularly to flowering plant. The watering of phnts Is of the greatest 1m portance, and this mutt be dune rightly. Nino-tenths of the failures in window gardcuing can be attributed to improper watering, either too much or too little in many cr.scs too much. We fro quently hear tho remarks, 'I can not think how it Is my plants do not do so well, for I water them everv day." This is likely to bo thu cause of their not doing well. My plants aro almost nlwavs wilted before I give them water. Insect pests are a great annoyance, and oltcn cause some trouble. I find a good bath of alum water will destroy tho little Ily, red spider or tho scale. I have no particular strait jacket rule by which 1 manage my plants, but judgo from ap pearances. They are very well satisfied with my kind of troatmeut. The soil 1 uso is good garden suit, well mixed, with sand and charcoal.
