(From our Itepilar correspondent.
Washington. D. 0., Jan. 24, 1887.
The present Congress has redeemed
its reputation during the first half of
this its Inst session, and it will now go
down to history honored, oven if it
should do nothing moro for tho remain
der of its life. The enactment ot tho
Presidential Succession bill has been
followed by that regulating tho Electo
ral Count, and bo a double peril is re
moved. It is now pretty certain that
President Cleveland a successors will bo
ciecteu nnu inaugurated without any
resort to partisan war a calamity that
hitherto hus been averted only by tho
toicranco ot mo people.
But this is not half of what has been
accomplished. The Iutor-stato Com
merce bill, 'for hotter or for worse,' has
gono through both houses, and only
awaits tho Executive signaturo to be-
oomo a law. Then a ngcrous Ann-
Polygamy measure has at last been
passed; an investigation of the Pacific
Katlroad crookedness has been ordered
aud the old Mexican veterans aro about
to bo pensioned,
At tho cud of this Congress, tho
terms of one-third of the wholo num
ber of United Stales Senators expire.
Wiuio somo ot them havo been re
elected, others will be succeeded by
now mou. It is noticeable that Feder
al soldiers aro getting scarce in the
senate, iticro aro only seven men
who fought on tho Union side during
thu war, while thero aro sixteen whoso
names cm on tho muster rolls of the
Confederacy. It is probable that only
three of the ox Federal wjl be left '
when tho Senato is called to ordor nt
tho commencement of tho next session.
These will bo Senators Hawlcy, Man-
dorson and Plumb. Fifteen Republi
can Sonators will bo sworn in on tho
4th of ncxtMaroh, but four of thim

In regard to Lieutenant Emory's
Arctic trip, Secretary Whitney has ex
pressed himself in no uncertain lan
guage Referring to tho report that
tho Lieut, wanted to go North in tho
"Thotis," ho said the United States had
Bomethlng else to do with its vessels,

the Si'cretarv. "that thero will bo no
such expedition under tho present Ad
ministration, but certainly not wnii my
consent. No ono will recelvo orders
from me for such a trip in consonance
with my wishes.
Tho President is in good health
again, but ho is careful to favor his
rheumatic kneo on all occasions. He
felt compelled to decline to roviow tho
order of thu Mystiu Shrino which visit
ed tho city during tho week, for fear
of tho damp air to which ho would bo
exposed, nnd ho could not go to tho
top of tho Washington Monument with
Mrs. Cleveland and Mr. Corcoran ac
cording to appointment. This trip to
tho clouds had beeu arranged for three
o'clock, and at that hour everything
was in readiness for tho distinguished
visitors. The interior of the Monu
ment was electrically lighted from top
to bottom, a firo was built in tho boiler
house, steam was generated, and sover
al preliminary trips of tho elevator hud
been made to see that everything was
in completo running order for tho ex
pected visit of the President Mrs.
Cleveland was on time, and announc
ing a disappointed tono that tho Presi
dent was not able to come, graceful ly
tendered her arm to the vouprablo Mr.
Corcoran, and couducted him to tho
elevator. Tho air insido the Monu
ment is damp and chilly, and when the
marble door swung open a blast rushed
cut that almost took tho breath of
those entering. The visitors looked
down upon tho magnificent pauorama
at the 500 foot level. Mrs. Cleveland
took especial interest in tho White
House, and tried hard to recognize it
familiar figuro at tho library window.
To morrow the prominent advocates
of woman suffragti will begin their
nineteenth annual conveulion in this
city, and to-morrow Senator Blair will
mako an effort to have the Woman
Suffrage amendment to tho Constitu
tion discussed in thu Seriate. Miss Su
sau B. Anthony, who has been hero for
SDmo weeks, is as grim and hopeful and
resolute as ever, wearing her defeats of
tho last forty years as cheirlully as
other veterans wear plumes of victory.
Sho doesn't thiuk at allt well of press
reporters, however. Slie says, where
women aro concerned, at least, tho re
porters are sure to seizo upon some
triviality and ring its changes to the
exclusion of business. She mentioned
that when she spoko in Chicago last
week, a dog that came with n newspa
per reporter ran across the stago aud
springing up laid his noso on her shoul
der. "I prophesied to tho audience
then," continued she, "that that dog
would figure in the press reports more
conspicuously than anything that was
said or done, and so he did."
Miss Anthony does not change much
as tho years go by. Tho opening of
Bomo new avenuo for the employment
of women, or some new gleam of Hope
from a Stato Legislature always comes
opportunely to offset the effects of
years and labors that might otherwise
bo adding new wrinkles to her brow.
"Teachers' inquiry in the Sentinel
of last week has called forth the fol
lowing letter from the County Super
intendent. Mit. KlUCKBAUM.
Dear Sir: 1 notieed
an article in your last issue in refer
ence to the finances of tho County In
stitute. Tho object of tho writer was
not informati n, as tho statements
must show that he knows that tho re
ceipts and expenditures of tho Ins-ti
tutu havo been carefully examined and
approved by a committeo of teachers.
I write, thoreforr, not for his informa
tion, but for the benefit of those who
have not given tho subject much
thought, consequently may not bo fully
ticquaintid with the law and tho facts
in tho case. Before Ur. Higbeo's lec
ture Monday evening Deo. 31, 1883,
I publicly stated that the evening en
tertainments were not required by law
as a part of tho Institute, that they
were gotten np by inytelf for the en
tertainment and profit of the teachers
and the publio ; that I was personally
responsible for all of tho expense and
if there was a deficit I must pay it, but
the surplus money I would use for the
benefit of the Institute.
In many of the counties of thu stato
tho Superintendents keep tho surplus
monoy, which they havo a legal right
to do. I know of no other Superin
tendent who under similar circumstan
ces uses it for tho benefit of tho In
stitute. Thero is not a single town in
this county which has a regular courso
of lectures. It matters not ho a- much
teachers may desire to attend lectures
they cannot often do so in this county.
Tho expenses of the, teaohers it ho at
tend the Institute, so far as board,
traveling, etc., are concerned aro tho
samo whether they atttend the evening
lectures or not. I have put forth all
possible efforts to give tho teachers
and the publio good Iiihtitutos and
evening entertainments. The Institut
es and evoiiug entertainments of Col
umbia oounty now rank among the
best of the state. An opportunity was
given the teachers to enroll, hut they
were not asked to do so. Tho enroll,
ment card gave them not only reserved
seats for the courso of lectures for
fifty cents (ono dollar less than tho
popular prio) but an opportunity to
select a desirable seat threo hours in
advance of the publio. The officers of
tho Instituto have not been extrava-
gantly compensated, hut they have re

prior to their acceptauco of tho honors
It might not bo uninteresting to
givo a short sketch of tho hittory of
our Institutes, but as this article is al
ready lengthy, I will ouy ey that tho
receipts from tho evening entertain-
menis oi my nrst instituto wero only
$00.75. At that time tho peoplo of
liloomsburg did not patronize lectuios
as thoy now do. That winter threo
of the most active attorneys in tho
town of Illoomshurg govo the citizens it
courso of lectures. Thoy canvassed
tho town and worked it up as I never
knew any other committee to do and
yet thoy did not meet expenses.
I havo been in correspondence with
most of tho lecture bureaus. I read
carefully tho circulars and testimonials
of each, and wheneter a lectin er that
I think will please tho patrons of our
Iuititute, speaks at Wilkeabarre, Dan-
villc, Shamokin, or nt any of tho towns
not too far distant, I go to hoar him,
and, if ploascd immediately cngago him.
In this way I havo secured lecturers
that havo not only pleased tho patrons
of the Institute, but added largely to
Its funds. Tho surplus on hand, after
dofraying nil tho expenses of every In
stlluti', I applied to tho expenses of
tho next one. During no vear of my
Snperintendonoy until 1884, hnd I moro
than $20 on hand. After tho Institute
of that year I had $120.87 surplus.
After all tho expenses of the Institute
of 1885 hud been paid, I had $223.35
on hand, and tills sum I used in do
fraying thn expenses of tho lato Insti
tute. Had I not had this sum on hand
of last year, I should havo been out of
pocket moro than ono hundred dollars
after pa) ing tho expenses of tho Insti
tute of 188G. It will thus bo seen that
I havo appropriated no monoy received
from any of tho Institutes, to my per-
snnal use, and I challenge any ono to
show anything to tho contrary, it tho
superintendent has no surplus money
from the county treasury, enrollment
fees, or evening lecture", nnd does not
realizo Biifliciont from theso sources to
defray the expenses of any Institute, ho
is obliged to pay the balance out of
his own pocket. This, it seems to me,
should bhow tho reasonableness of
keeping an unexpended balanco on
hand whenever it is possible to do so.
Should I havo any such money in
my hands at the expiration of my offi
cial term, I shall in accordanco with
my publio. statement of 1883, hand it
to my successor, to bo applied to tho
expenses of his Institutes. A state
ment of tho receipts nnd expenditures
of all tho Institutes held by me can bo
seen at my office.

A Great Victory
A Torriblo Caso of Scrofula
Cured by
Hood's Sarsaparilla
" In tho winter ot 1879 I was attacked with
Scrofula In ono ot the most aggravating forms.
At one time I had no less than thirteen Urge
kbscesses over and around my neckand throat,
continually exuding an offensive mass of
bloody matter disgusting to behold, and
almost Intolerable to endure. It Is Impossible
to fully describe my sufferings, as the cut
was complicated with Chronic Catarrh. After
thrco years ot misery, having been treated by
three physicians, I was worso than ever.
Finally, on the recommendation of W. J.
Huntley, druggist, of Lockport, I was Induced
to try Hood's Sarsaparilla. And now, alter
having taken twelve bottles, within the last
twelvo months, the scrofulous eruptions havo
entirely ceased, and the abscesses havo all
disappeared, except the unsightly scars, which
aro dally becoming" smaller by degrees, and
beautifully less.' I do not know what It may
havo dono for others, but I do know that In
my case, Hood's Sarsaparilla has proved an
effective specific Indeed. As an evidence ot
my gratitude I send these facts unsolicited,
and I am ready to verify tho authenticity ot
this cure, by personal correspondence with
any ono who doubts It." Cuaiiles A. lion

I was reduced almost to askeieton. My
Cough was incessant, and I frequently

Cured By Using
two bottles of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
I am now in perfect health, and able to
resume business, after having been pro

For years I was in n decline. I had
weak lungs, and suffered from Bron

resort to the Pectoral, and find speedy
relief. Edward E. Curtis, Rutland, Vt.
Two years ago I suffered from a severs
Bronchitis. The physician attending
mo became fearful that the disease would
terminate in Pneumonia. After trying
various medicines, without benefit, he

which relieved me at once. I continued
to take this medicine, and was cured.
