Washington. D. C. Jan. 11, 1887.
The week's work in Congress can bo
easily summarized, as tho Senate was
in scsb'iou only threo days and the
Houso four. Besides a good deal of
other private legislation tho Scuato
pensioned the widow of General Logan
at S2,00l) a year, secretly discussed the
Moxicau Reciprocity treaty, and do
bated the important pending bill on
Intcratato Commerce. The House
pastd threo of the regular Appropri
ation bills, several dozen privato pen
sion bills, and discussed bills on the
Publio Buildings and Naval Reorgani
station. But what should be empha
sized in tho work of a Democratic
House is tbo passage, without oppo
sition, and without any provision for
Confederate soldiers, of a pension bill
for tho cunent year appropriating over
This amount is nearly as much as
were tho emiio expenses of the Gov
eminent, before tho war, and it ought
to put tho Republican ranters of tho.
last Picsidential campaign to he blush,
if anythingcqidiL- Selntioratic close
" fwted tress, indeed. Wherein does it
Senator Beck lias by no moans given
up his intention of pushing his bill to
prohibit membere of Congress from
acting as attorneys for Tailroads which
have received Government aid, al
ihouuh his long sileueo had led some
of tho railroad Senators to hope that
they would not again be confronted by
this hugbenr. It is a soro trial for,
them to liavo to face this dreadful
measure, especially since they know it
is urged forward by a practically un
animous public sentiment Th) debate
on the Inter-Stato Commerce bill U be
ing long drawn nut in the Senato as a
shield to keep Mr. Beck off, but even
it must como to an end when all the
speakers have made their speeohes for
or against it.
It seems that tho Revonuo Reform
question is really coming to tho front
now, and that another effort will bo
made to reach those surplus millions
This time it will be by the internal
revenue men, llr. Randall and his fol
lowers. They will advocate that the
whole of tho tobacco tax bo removed,
that tho tax on alcohol used in tho arts
be abolished, and that fruit brandies
bo relieved of tax, but as to whether
they will attempt any Tariff alterations,
no one can predict. Tho Members of
Congress from tobacco producing states
feel that it is a duty they owe their
constituents to vote for the repeal of
the internal tax on tobacco in almost
any shape that it might bo presented
Thiso are exciting days for tho Sen
ators whoso terms expire on the fourth
of March, and there aro many indica
tions that tho Senato will bo much
changed after that time, but whether
or not it will bo improved in oharacter
or ability is an open question. Senator
Conger of Michigan, who has been in
public life for thirty-two years, is to be
succeeded by Col. Stockbridge, because
the latter is a richer man. The long
bearded R-publican millionaire from
Nevada, Mr. W. M. Stewart, is coming
back for another term. No one objects
to him, however, as ho was rather a
lively man hi tho Senate, and having a
pretentious looking residence here,
takes a good dal of interest in theira
proveiuentof Washington city.
It is still doubtful who will get Gen.
Logan's place, but Pennsylvania sends
Mr. Quay, a well known boss and in
tnguer, instead of Mr. Mitchell ; and
Minnesota sends ex-Governor Davis, a
taritr. leiormer, a writer of a book on
biiakespoatv, and a so-called orator, n
place of Mr. McMillan. Nebraska is
hesitating between a demagogue ami a
magnate, aim uaiuornia is still ii
doubt, as are aUo Now York, Massa

that after Republican Secretaries of
ho Navy had for years recommended
this same kind of legislation, it should
now bo tipposed because a Democratic
secretary lial recommended it. Mr.
Boutelle, of Maine, who is ono of the
narrowest partisans on tho Republican
side, denied that Mr. God or hiimelf
had changed front in regard to this
inaticr. But Mr. Buck did not waver.

TUB CHEAT WAIt I'll r.S I DENT.
General Uadeau In New York World.
On tbo 20th of March a distinguish
ed party from Washington joined
them, among whom I loracmber espec
ially Mr. GeolTroi, tho French Minister.
It was proposed that an excursion
should bu raado to tho front of the
Army of tho l'otomae, about ten or
twclvo miles away, and Mrs. Lincoln
and Mrs. Grant wero of tho company.
Tlieio was a military railroad which
took tho illustrious guests a great por
tion of tho way and then tho men wero
mounted, but Mrs. Grant and Mrs.
Lincoln went on in an ambulance, as
it was called a sort ot half open car
riago with two scats, besides that for
tho driver. I was detailed to escort
them and of course sat on tho front
seat facing tho ladies, with my back
to tho horses.
In tho courso of conversation I men
tioned that all the wives of officers at
tho army trout had been ordered to the
rear a sure sign that active operations
wero in contemplation. I said not a
lady hod been allowed to remain ex
copt Mrs. Griffin, the wifo of General
Charles Griffin, who had obtained a
special permission from tho President.
At this Mrs Lincoln was up in arm.
"What do you mean by that, sir 7" she
exclaimed. "Do you mean to say that
she saw the President alouot Do you
know that I never allow tho President
to see any woman alonol" She was
absolutely jealous of poor, ugly Abra
ham Lincoln. I tried to pacify her
and to palliate my remark, but tbe was
fairly boiling over with rage. "That's
a very equivocal smile, sir," she exclaim
ed. "Let, mo out of this carriage at
once. I ill ask the President if ho
saw that woman alono." Mrs. Griffin
was ono of tho best known and most
elegant women in Washington, after
ards the C.untiss K.-teilnzy, a Car
ioII and a personal acquaintance of
Mis. Grant, who strove tp mollify the
excited spou-e, but in vain. Mrs. Lin
coln again bado mo t-top the driver, and
when I hesitated to obey she thrust
her arms past me to the front of th''
carriage and held the driver fast But
Mrs. Grant finally prevailed on her to
wait till tho whole party alighted, and
then General Meade came up to pay his
re-mects to the wito ot tho i'resnleiit.
I had intended to offer Mrs. Lincoln
my arm and endeavor to prevent a
scene, but Meade, of course, as my su
perior, had the right to escort her, and
I had no chance to warn him. I saw
them go off together and remained in
fear and trembling for what might
occur in the prtsenue of tho foreign
Minister and other important strangers.
But General M ada was very adroit
and when they returned Mrs. Lincoln
looked at me significantly and said :
''General Meade is a gentleman, sir.
Ho says it was not the President who
gave Mrs. Griffin tho permit but, the
Secretary of War." Meade was tho
son of a diplomatist aud had ovidently
inherited some of his father's skill.
At night when wo were back in
camp, Mrs. Grant talked over tho mat
ter with mo and said tho whole atfair
was so distres-iug and mortifying that
we must never either mention it to any
one ; at least I was to b absolutely cl
ient and she would disclose it only to
the General. But tho next diy I was
released from my pledge, for ".verso
Tho warns party went in tho morn
ing to visit the Army of tho James on
the north side of the river, commanded
by General Old. The airangoments
were somewhat similar to those of tho
day befoie. Wo went up the river iu
a steamer ind then the men again took
horses aud Mrs. Lincoln aud Mrs.
Grant went in an ambulance. I was
detailed as before to act as escort, but
1 asked for a compaui m iu the duty,
for after my experience of the previous
day I did not wish to bo tho only offi
cer in tho cairiage. So Geueial
Horace Porter was ordered to join
tho party. Mrs. Ord was with her bus
band. As she was tho wifo of the
commander , of an array nho was not
subject to tlio order lor return, though
before that day was over she wished
herself iu Washington or anywhere
else away from tho army, I am sure.
She was mounted, and as the ambu
lance was full, slio remained on her
horse and rode for awhile by the side
of tho President null ahead of Airs.
As soon as Mrs. Lincoln discovered
this her ragu was beyond all bounds.
"Whu does the woman mean,'1 she ex
claimed "by riding by tho side of the
President and ahead of mot Does
she suppose that ho wants her by tho
sido of him 1" Sho wni in a frenzy of
excitement, sml langu ige and action
both became moro extravagant every
moment. Mrs. Graat again endeavor
ed to pacify her, but then Mrs. Lincoln
got angry with Mri. Grant, aud all
that Porter and I could do was to see
that nothing worse than words occur
red. We feared that she might jump
out of tho vehicle and shout to I ho
oavalcade. Ouco sho said to Mrs.
Grant in her transports : "I suppose
you thiuk you'll get to tho White
Houso yourself, don't vou V Mrs
Grant was very cilm and dignified,
ami merely replied that she was quite
satisfied with her present position ; it
was lar greater than she had ever ex
pected lo attain. Then Mrs. Lincoln
exclaimed : "Oh 1 you had better lake
it if vou oan get it. 'Tis veiy nice."
Then she returned to Mn. Ord, but
Mrs. Grant defended her Mend at the
risk of arousing greater vehomcuce.

nation, aud Mrs. Ord camo up to tho
ambulance. Then Mrs. Lincoln posi
tively immlied her, called hor vilo
names in the presence of a crowd of
officers, and asked what she meant by
following up tho 1'ri'sUKut. Tho poor
woman burst into tears aud inquired
what she had acne, but Mrt. Lincoln
refused to bo uppoased, and stormed
until sho va. tired. Mrs, Grant still
tried to stand by her frlund, mid every
body was shocked and horrified. Hut
all things camo to an end, and after a
while wo returned to Uity l'oiut
That night the President ntid Mrs.
Lincoln entertained General and Mrs.
Grant and the General's staff at din
ner on Iho steamer, and beforo us nil
Mrs. Lincoln berated General Ord to
the President and urged that ho should
bo removed. Ho was unfit for hi
place, sho said, to say nothing of his
wife. General Grant eat next and de
fomled his officer bravely. Of course
General Ord was not removed.
During nil this visit similar scenes
were occuring. Mis. Lincoln repeat
cdlv attacked her husband in the pros
once of officers bccatiso of these two
ladios, aud I hover suffered greater
humiliation and pam on account ol one
not n near personal friend thnn when I
saw tho held of the Statu the man
who carriod all tlio cares of the nation
at such a crisis subjected to this in
expressible public mortlhcation. lie
bore it as Chiist might have done, with
an oxpicsslon of pain and sadness that
out one to thu heart, but with supreme
calmness and dignity. Ho called her
"mother" with his old-time plainness;
ho pleaded with eyes and tones, and en
deavored to explain or palliate tho of
fenses of others, till she turned on him
liko a tigress, and then ho walked
away, hid!ug that noble, ugly face that
we might not catch tho full expression
of its misery.
Shortly beforo these occurrences
Mrs. Stanton had visited City Point
and I chanced to ask her some qncs
lion about the President's wifo "1 do
not visit Mrs. Lincoln,'' was tho reply.
I thought I must have been mistaken.
Thu wife of (ho Secretary of War
must visit tho wifo of tho President,
aud I renewed inv mauirv. "Under
stand me, sir,'' she repeated, "I do not
go to tho White House; I do not visit
Mis. Lincoln." I was not intimate with
her at thu lime, nor indeed ever, and
this remark was so extraordinary that
I never forgot it, but I understood it
Mrs. Lincoln continued her conduct
towards Mrs. Grant, who strove to pla
cato her, and then Mrs. Lincoln be
came moro outrageous still. Sho once
rebuked Mrs. Grant for sitting in her
presence "How dare you bo seated,"
sho said, "until I invite you !'' Alto
gether it was a hateful experienco nt
that tremonttous crisis in tho nation s
history, for all this was just before the
army started on its last campaign.
But the war ended aud thu President
and Mrs. Lincoln had returned to
Washington when Geneial Grant ar
rived from Appomattox, bringing Mrs.
Grant with him. Two nights after
wards both General and Mrs. Grant
and the Secretary of War and Mrs.
Stanton were invited to accompany the
President and Mrs. Lincoln to tho play.
no answer naa yet been sent when
Mrs. Stanton called on Mrs. Grant to
iuquiie if she meant to bo ono of tho
party. "For," said Mrs. Stanton, "un
less you accept the invitation I shall
refuse. I will not sit without jou in
tin- box with Mrs. Lincoln.'' Mrs.
Gran" was also tired out with what sho
had endured, and decidid not to go lo
I iio play, little dreaming of the terri
ble experience sho was thus escaping.
Sho determined to go that night to
Burlington, in New Jersey, where her
children wero at school, and asked tho
G neral to accompany her. Sho sent
a note of apology In Mrs. Lincln and
Mrs. Sianton also declined tbo invita
tion. They may both thus have save I
their husband's livcB.
After the murder of tho President
tho eccentricities of Mrs. Lincoln be
came moro apparent than ever, aud
people began to wonder whether htr
mind had not been effected by her
terrible misforluue. Mi. Soward told
me that sho sold th Prtsideut's shirts,
with his initials marked on them, be
foro sho left the White House and that,
learning tho linen was for sale at a
sh"p iu Pennsylvania avenue, ho sent
aud bought it priwvtely. She liugered
at the Exeoutivu Mansion a long while
after all arrangements should have
been msdo for her departure, keeping
the new Pnsideiit out of his proper
residence. Afterwards bIio made an
peals to public men and to the country
for pensions and other ptcuniary aid,
though there was no need for publio
application. She went .inroad doing
strange things and carrying the houoi?

tho neglect. When I was Co isul

living in an obscure quarter and went
to sce her. Sho was touched by tho
attention, and when I aked hor to my
hoiifu for it seemed wiong that tho
widow of the man who had done so
much for us all should be ignored by
any American r piesentative she
wrote mo a note of thanks, betraying
how rare such courtesies had beconio
to her then.
Tlio next I heard of the poor wo
man was tho scandal of the courts in
Chicago, whtii the fact was made clear
that she was insane. It was a great
relief to mo to learn it, and doubtless
tho disclosure of the secret which her
son must have long suspected though,
like tho Spartan boy, he cloaked his
pain was to him a sort of terrible
satisfaction. It vindicated his conduct;

A Oall for Patriotism.
Mr. Flower is right iu saying that,
with the House Democratic aiid the
Senate Republican, there must be a
compromise in order to effect tho re
duction in taxaiion which both parties
declare to bo necessary.
1 ho World has frequently empha
sized this fact. A compromise is like
wise rendered ntcessary by tho divis
ion in both parties, particularly among
the Democrats, as to tbo ditection in
winch the reduction should bo made.
Some wish to cut down the tariff only.
Others wish to abolish tho internal rev
enue taxes. Leading Republicans
notably Senator Hoar and other Mass
achusetts men favor a reduction of
revenue by placing, morn of the raw
materials of manufacture upon the free
In short, party lines aro not drawn
upon the most important question of
tho Jession that ot cu'.ling off the
surplus. And if the liues were drawn,
the fact that the House is controlled
by one party and the Senate by another
would prevent any action. In this slat
of affairs there is but one ri course.
Patriotism must take precedence of
partisanship. Private interest must
give wny to the public interest. Per
sonal views must bu subordinated to
the decision of a majority. Free
tobacco for tho poor and an abatement
of tho tariff taxes on universal necessi
ties afford a fair basis of compromise.

the weather, a respectable number of the
good peoplo of Pine township assembled tit
Kurchncr's Church to be present at the dis

place, on the abovo date. The church
would no doubt have been filled to overllow,

Snpt. J. S. Grimes was elected chairman
and Miss Mary Fans, secretary of the Insti

cd by reading from the Scriptures and
prayer by Prof. Noetling.
Pupils from the Barton school gave a
well prepared recitation. Eva Faus recited
"Tho Water Wheel;'' Hachael Faus, "Two
Littlo Stookines," and Catherine Fuus read
an account of her "First Trip to Eagles
mere." Prof. Noetling spoke of tho Improve
ments lo our schools made In recent years:
and how all these improvements had been
opposed by the people. Years ago children
had to spend from two to turco winters iu
school before they wero able to read, lien
bee mo great iu spite of tbo old schools.
r-upt. Grimes gave his talk on Holding.
Pupils should know how to pronounce all
the words and comprehend their meaning

should be Introduced Into our schools. It
is of tho greatest importanco that emphasis
bo taught. Teachers must create a love in
their pupils for reading. Let tho pupils
criticise one, another.

The institute reopened with singing.
Prof.Noetling was asked "What can teach,

Mr, W II. Snyder was then called upon
and spoke at considerable length. He gave
an Interesting account of the changes and

house work. Teachers who have not their
heart in their work aro robbing the taxpay.
ers of their money and tho children of tho

Pupils should study what they need when
they oecomo men aud women. When the
tongue cannot reach the heart, the rod
must reach tho hack.
Miss Mary Faus read an Interesting essay
on tho "Teacher's Work."
Prof. Heck gavo some of his experience,
as a pupil, in relation to corporal punish,
tucnt and said that he would nut resort to
it until all other means of tubduiog refrac
loiy youth had been tried and failed. Ho
spoko of tho bid effects of giving pupils
many studies to pursue and tho following
are a few of his thoughts; Most great men
received their early Instruction In country
schools, No man though hn should live
1,000 years can master all branches of
learning; but a man does unusually well if
he roaster ono branch. From tho nature
of the mind and of learning, to be most
useful in life, we must devote nil nur ener.
gles to one branch of study and roaster It
, us nearly as possible, Tho specialist Is tho
, most useful member of society and ono
sought alter lu emergencies, becsuso he
knows moro of one branch than auy one
else and can apply hll k low ledge more,
skilfully mid more for tho benefit ot man
kind than any ono elio. The man of gen
eral Information Is a sort ot Jack-of-all-
Trades and Isn't skilled enough In any ono
to bo of tho greater usefulness, Expcrl-
eucc proves that many studies distract,
confuso and dwarf tlio mtud of youth;
whereas few studies glvo clear thought nnrt
cnlsrgcd mental graip. In placing sldo by
side, In our academies, pupils who begau
their studies In large towns and cities,
where many branches nre taught, where
school terms aro long and where everything
Is dono to mako learning pleasant and to
cxclto tho pupil's ambition and appetite for
learning and, those who began their stud
Ics In nur country schools, where pupils
study only a few of tho elementary
branches, nt n time, where lltlle Is done to
exclto tho pupil's ambition and zenl in
learning, ho found that the country boy al
most Invariably understood more clearly,
grasped more thorouhlv, could apply
what ho had learned far better, took a
deeper Interest In his studivs and It. every
way outstripped tho cily youth. Do not
weary tho child In attempting to teach ma
ny things at onco.
Prof. Noetling spoke of corporal pun,
lsumc.nl and said that there was somo
weakness In the teacher who had to rule
with tho rod. Mr. Snyder talked of Head
Ing and said that the pupil should bo taught
to read natuinlly. Supt. Grimes announc

A Common Gold
Is often the beginning ot serious affec
tions ot the Throat, Bronchial Tubes,
and Lungs. Therefore, the importance
ot early and effective treatment cannot
be overestimated. Ayer'a Cherry Pec
total may always bo relied upon for the
speedy cure of a Cold or Cough.
Last January I was attacked with a
severe Cold, which, by neglect and fre
quent exposures, became worse, finally
settling on my lungs. A terriblo cough
soon followed, accompanied by paius in
the chest, from which I suffered Intense
ly. After trying various remedies, with
out obtaining relief, I commenced taking
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, and was
I am satisfied that this remedy saved my
life. Jno. Webster, Paw tucket, P.. I.
I contracted a severe cold, which
suddenly developed into Pneumonia,
presenting dangerous and obstinate
aymptorna. My physician ordered the
use of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. His in
structions were followed, and the result
was a rapid and permanent cure.
II. E. Stimpson, Iiogers Prairie, Tex.
Two years ago I suffered from a severe
Cold, which settled on my Lungs. I con
suited various physicians, and took the
medicines they prescribed, but received
only temporary relief, A friend induced
me to try Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. After
taking two bottles of this medicine I wan
cured. Since then I have given the Pec
toral to ray children, and consider it
The Best Remedy
for Colds, Coughs, and all Throat and
Lung diseases, ever used in my family.
Robert Vanderpool, Jteadvilfe, Pa.
Some time ago I took a slight Cold,
which, being neglected, grew worse, and
settled on my Lungs. I had a hacking
cough, and was very weak. Those who
knew mo best considered my life to be
in great danger, I continued to suffer
until I commenced using Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral, Less than one bottle of this
valuable medicine cured me, and I
feel that I owe tho preservation of ray
life to its curat I vo powers. Mrs. Ann
Loekwood, Akrou, New York.
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral is considered,
here, the ono great remedy for all diseases
of the throat and lungs, and is more
in demand than any other medicine of its
class. J, F. Koberts, Magnolia, Ark.
