The big storm of the first of the week,
in the vicinity of Boston, wis the most
severe the city has experienced In twenty
Ave years. Wires were down and all
branches or business, and the street car
and steam railroad traffic were completely
paralysed Monday night and Tuesday
morning. Many horses were killed by
stepping upon the ends of telephone wires
which had fallen across the trolly lines
The storm was the most severe along the
coast, and the loss to life and shipping at
sea will be very large.

Washington, Jan. SI, 1897.
The president and the leaders of the
several parlies in congress are Just now
engaged In playing the old and fascinating
game of politics. The silver men have
been making their plays with the object
of making the congressional campaign a
square fight between silver and gold, and
for a time the administration appeared to
be willing to aid them In bringing that re
sult about. But there has been a change.
and now the administration has made
plala its purpose of sticking to the inter
national bimetallism plank of the St.
Louis platform, at the same time declar
ing its intention to maintain the present
gold standard until international bimet
allism is secured. Of course, the silver
men say that this is merely an attempt to
be fuddle the issue. The senate, which
is controlled by sliver men, fired its first
broadside when It adopted the Teller reso
lution. It was at first intended that this
resolution should be quietly smothered in
the house, but uoon consideration, the
republican leaders decided that as an off
set to the aotlon of the senate, the resolu
tion must be defeated by a vote of the
house, and that action was taken today.
The silver republican senators have de
cided that the country must have some
explanation of their support of the Teller
resolution and they will be given through
speeches on the floor of the senate. So a
fresh flood of financial oratory may be ex
pected, as it is not Hkely that the other
side will allow the talking to be monopo
II zed by the explainers.
The Cuban situation In congress was
eased for the time to a marked extent by
the sending of that warship to Havana,
but the advocates of action are getting
restless again under the numerous reports
that the warship was merely a trick to
gain further time, and they may start
some sort of movement any day.
There Is a disposition on the part of a
considerable number of senators who
strongly favor some positive action on the
part of this government in behalf of Cuba
not to allow a vote to be taken on the
treaty for the annexation of Hawaii until
the administration has made a plainer
showing of Its Cuban policy. Nothing
positive has been agreed upon, but it is
significant that the senators who areagl
tatlng the matter are In political accord
with President McKlnley and in favor of
the annexation of Hawaii, but are im
patient at the slowness with which the ad
ministration's Cuban policy is developing.
nd anxlouB to hurry it up a little. An
Intimation of their feelings has been given
the president. The senate has so often
shown its sympathy for Cuba that there
Is little doubt of the success of a motion
to postpone Indefinitely the consideration
of the Hawaiian treaty, If It vere made in
connection with a statement that it was
done to help Cuba.
President Dole, of Hawaii has now been
In Washington nearly a week, the guest
of the nation. On every Bide he Is praised
for the discreet manner in which he is
conducting himself, as well as for his
modest and unassuming ways. Although
he Is naturally deeply Interested in seeiog
the annexation treaty ratified, he asks no
ques Ions of the senators who call on him;
contenting himself with giving full In for
matlon in reply to questions asked him
He shows wisdom, for the least bit of
offlclousness oh his part In behalf of an
nexatlon would be exploited by the anils
as offensive meddlesomeness.
The moral cowardice displayed by some
senators In the votes upon the several
amendments to the Teller resolution, de
claring bonds payable In silver at the
option of the government, which was
adopted by a majority of fifteen, was not
calculated to Increase the esteem felt for
them by their constituents. Although to
vote against the Teller resolution was in
effect to endorse the present policy of
paying bonds In gold, there were only
twenty-four senators willing to go on re
cord as voting for the Lodge substitute,
which upeclfically stated that all bonds
should be r aid In gold or its equivalent,
while thirty-two voted against the Teller
resolution. Can anybody blame the con
stltuents of the six senators who voted
against the Teller resolution and either
declined to vote or voted against the
Lodge substitute for calling them flnancl
al halr-splltters. The congressional
record, containing the votes in detail on
the Teller resolution and the amendments
offered thereto la likely to be carefully
studied in nioie than one state, and to
make trouble for more than one senator.
The house has passed a bill appropriat
ing $288,000 for the relief of the Book
Publishing Company of the Southern
Methodist church. This claim, which
arose from losses by the company, lncl
dental to the war, has been before con
gress In one or another shape for twenty
odd years. The bill passed by the house
was a substitute for a senate, bill, whloh
authorized the clalmauts to bring suit for
the money in the Court of Claims, and
will, therefore, go back to the senate.

The common belief that horses in
burning building are always panlo
stricken and refractory, not recognizing
their friends and refusing obedience to
those who would rescue them, is not j
itriotly true, as is proved by an incident
related by a Companion contributor.
The governor bad a fine black driving
horse called Dexter. Although strong
and spirited, Dexter was docile and obe
dient and was petted and made much
of by his master. As the governor kept
no other horse, Dexter had the stable
all to himself, with a clean stall and a
The etable was near the bonse, and in
addition to Dexter's stall and harness
room contained a large carriage room,
sn oat bin and a haymow over the stall.
One night, when the family and the
servants were away from home and the
governor was in the house alone, ne
was awakened by an ominous crackling
and a bright glare on his chamber win
dow, and before he could collect his
sleepy wits ne was startled by a cry un
like any sound he had ever heard. As he
sprang out of bed the cry came again,
and hastening to the window ho learned
the cause. The stable was all ablaze,
and out of the smoke and flames Dexter
was calling bis master to his rescue.
Pausing only to don coat and slippers,
the governor rushed out The outside
door of the stable leading into the stall
was already blocked by the flames, and
the only entrance to be had was through
the carriage room, the harness room and
a narrow entry leading past the oat bin.
These rooms were on fire overhead, and
burning wisps of hay and shingles were
raining down in showers.
Blinded by smoke, the governor stum
bled along the roundabout way and.
reaching the stall sooner than he expect
ed, fell headlong down the steps against
the excited animal, who was vainly
tuKgina at his halter. Thinking some
new danger threatened him, Dexter
gave a mighty kiok that sent his master
sprawling and lamed him lor a montn.

the governor crept up and cut the halter
and, calling Dexter to follow him,
limped blindly through the smoke filled
entry and the two blazing rooms be
yond, and close after him went Dexter,
bis nose pressed against his master's
shoulder, man and horse reaching the
safe outer air together.
"It was Dexter's obedience that saved
him." said the governor. "I could not
lead him. and had he shown the least
obstinaoy or any less readiness to fol
low at a word through all that round
about, unaccustomed way I must have
left him to perish in the flames, but he
followed like a well trained soldier, and

A Thorough Cor.
There is no sentiment about Grizler.
He is close and is not easily alarmed. It
is not surprising, then, that the doctor
assumed the utmost gravity when Griz
ler called to present the case of his wife.
"I'm greatly afraid," said the bus
band, "that her mental equilibrium is
disturbed. She is not like other women
and not as she used to be. "
"What are the symptoms?"
"You may regard them of a negative
character, doctor. To begin with, she
never opens her fashion papers of late. '
"Bad! Badl Very bad I"
"I feared as much. The woman who
lives next door called last night and
wore one of the most elegant hats I ev
er saw. You know that 1 am not given
to noticing such things. Mrs. Grizler
never seemed to see it and said nothing
about it after the caller had gone. "
"Awful, exclaimed the doctor, "aw
ful. I've known your wife, urizler, ev
er since she was born. No one ever had
a brighter mind or a happier disposi
tion. I can't understand it. Used to be
the life and beauty of every company
she was ever in. Does she go out?
"No, nor entertain. Never mentions
tho theater, burns all invitations and is
without the slightest interest in the so
oial whirl. I would give half I'm worth
to see her the girl I married. "
"Done," snapped the doctor, and he
wrote out the strangest prescription on
record. It called for horses, carriages,
fine raiment, jewels and a well filled
purse. At the bottom was a receipt in
fnll for $250, 000. There was no chance
for Grizler to weaken, and now his
wife is one of the most brilliant women
in the swim. When she and the old doc
tor meet, be winks and she whispers.

The passengers on an early morning
train connecting with this city were
treated to a thoroughly enjoyable scene
the other morning. At one of the small
stations a young lady boarded the train
She was dressed rather stylishly, but
a veil covered a rather plain face. She
witched down the aisle like a queen,
She barely deigned to glance at the
other passengers in the car, and when
she did her nose rose perceptibly at the
tip in a manner that spread the impres
sion or contempt
She carried a Boston bag and the air
of a millionaire. There was but one seat
vacant. This was beside a good looking,
nicely dressed young man who was read
ing a paper.
When she came to this Beat, she flop
ped down heavily and tossed her bag to
the seat between herself and the young
man. Two seconds later the young man
leaped from bis seat, and a string of
earnest words of doubtful origin fell
from bis lips like vipers from the lips of
tne young woman iu the fable.
The startled passengers looked to see
what bad caused this outburst. They
saw, and then they laughed. The nice
looking Boston bag contained an ordi
nary, everyday working girl's lunch.
One of its features was a jar of coffee,
which had broken in the descent and
flowed freely over the young man's new
fall coat and tronsers.
He went into the smoking car, swear
ing profusely. She murmured a weak
apology and spent ber time in mopping
up tne seat. Brockton Enterprise.
The London World gives this as an
illustraa ion of the keen humor of Jus
tice Darling: On one occasion, when
Mr. Uladstone was beginning to give
up the lead in the house of commons to
Sir William Haroourt, it was noticed
by the members that he left the bouse
at the dinner hour and Sir William
Haroourt led for the rest of the sitting.
Mr. Darling one evening drove Sir Wil

nite answer to an inquiry, by casually
observing in the course of bis speech

At the beginning of the century the
magnate, or higher aristocracy of Hun
gary, . lived in a semiregal .luxury.
Their official court dress, which is Quite
oriental in its richness and splendor,
alone recalls the feudal period of the
Hungarian aristocracy. Their country
chateaux ate lordly in nothing but
their hospitality. If a stranger drives
up in his carriage to the entrance door
of a Huugarian chateau, immediately
and before any questions are asked con
cerning the visitor's business, even be
fore the master of the bouse has made
is appearance, a legion of servants
rush forward and carry the visitor's
baggage to one of the half dozen rooms
always ready to receive guests, invited
or otherwise. Twelve o clock is the
usual time for dinner, and four or five
empty seats are always prepared for
guests who might arrive. When the
Hungarians wish to honor more partic
ularly a guest, a succession of 15 or SO
courses are served at dinner, but as the
Magyars bave in everything the ut
most respect for individual liberty, no
guest is ever pressed to eat or drink.
After dinner guests and hosts take a
long drive over the estates of the cha
teau or pay a visit to the neighboring
castle. If it is a Sunday, a visit is
made to the nearest village, where a
peasant country dance is in full swing.
Supper at the chateau takes place be
tween 7 and 8, after which a dance is
given or a whist party is indulged in.
The next morning everything is silent
in the house until 10 o'clock. Much
as in England and Scotland, break
fast is taken when one pleases, at no
fixed hour. During the whole morning
the noble owner of the mansion is ex
tremely busy. The upper Hungarian
aristocracy still manage the business
details cf their estatrs themselves, and,
as may be imagined, this is no small
work, since many of these domains are
larger than some petty German states.
Such is the everyday life of a Hunga
rian nobleman. In winter he generally
goes with bi9 family to 6pend a few
months in Budapest San Francisco
LonKstreet on Ilia Farm.
A visitor wfco recently caned to see
General Lougerrect at his farm near
Gainesville, Ga., says: "I looked for a
large, old fashioned southern place,
with pillars and a wide hall. Instead
the house was an ordinary story and a
half farmhouse, such as a northern car
pen ter might build. A board nailed to
a tree offered wine for sale at a very
low price, and I saw au extensive vine
yardacro3s the road. A lean, farmerlike
person told me that General Longstreet
was in his vinevard, and there 1 came
upon him, scissors in hand, busily prun
ing his vines. He is a big old man,
stooping a little now and slow of gait.
He wears long white whiskers, cutaway
from hiscbin. His hair is white as wool,
but his skin is ruddy, as though sleep
and good digestion were still his to com
mand. We talked for a time about his
garden and vineyard. 'I get out every
afternoon,' he said, 'and work about'
find the sun and air do me good.' One
of bis arms is a little disabled, and he
is quite deaf in one ear. He could not
bear very well in the open air, and at
bis suggestion we returned to the bouse.
I live with my tenant. He is a veteran
of the northern army,' be said at the
door, and there was a slight smile about
bis eyes." New York Tribune.
