March 21 The tariff debate In the
house was almost as dull as the first. There
were two notable speeches, one by Mr. Gro
venor of Ohio and the other by Mr. McMillin
of Tennessee, but tbe rest of tbe speeches,'
with the possible exception of that of Mr.
Walker of Massachusetts, hardly created a
ripple on tbe monotonous sea of speech
making. Iu the Senate the agricultural appropria
tion bill was reported just as It came from
the House. Mr. Cullnui, Kepublican, Illin
ois, introduced bill for a monument to
Abraham Lincoln on the Gettysburg battle
field. Mr. Allen, Populist, Nebraska, follow
ed up bia attack of yesterday on ciyil service
by the introduction of a bill to repeal the

and all executive orders Issued thereon. .
March 25. The fourth and last day of the
general debate on the tariff bill brought forth
a request at the opening of ' be session by
Mr. llHlley, Democrat, Texas, for an exten
sion of two hours of the debate. He stated
that he had been under treatment for
oro throat and that it would be Impossible
for him to ocoupy the floor for an hour to
day. Mr. I'ayne, Kepublican, New York, ob.
jected to the request.
Mr. Talbert, Domoornt. South Carolina,
opened the discussion in a lu-mlnute speech
against the bill.

March 20. The real consideration of the
tariff bill begun this morning, when tbe bill
was thrown open for amendment under the
live-minute rule. The leaders nn both sides
were In their placet, but there were hardly
more than 70 members on the floor. Mr.
La n ha in, as soon as the enacting clause of
the bill wsb read, moved to strlko it out,
Mr. Sherman, who was in the chair, ruled
that the motlou was out of order.
Mr. Dockery offered the (1 rut amendment
It was to tbe enacting clause and was ln the
nature of a proviso that whenever it was
shown to the satisfaction of the i'r' dent
that there was a trust or eonihiruo u to

Mr. Dlngley made the point of order that
the amendment In effect was to the free list
and as the bouse was now considering the
dutiable list it was not In order.
Tbe chair ruled that the Dockcry amend
ment to the tariff was out of order. Mr.
Dockory appealed from the' decision of the
chair. The ruling of the chair was sustain
ed. 15H to 104.
In the senate Senator Quay Introduced a
a batch of fifty or more bills. They were

KFFXOTS or ALCOHOL.
Dr. A. Baer, of Berlin, says: "Alcohol It
not a food in the sense that it gives one the
power of endurance or preserves strength
and health. It rather produces the opposit
ellects, for it destroys the body aud ruins Its
health." Instead ot being a preventive of
malaria, cholera and other diseases, alcohol
actually predlsposas one to these evils. The
mental nnd moral effects of alcoholism nre
beyond description terrible. "Alcohol des
troys the individuality of men, paralyses tbe
will and the physioal energy, makes the In
dividual a slave of his passions.", . ,.

three resurrections of the dead in tho Old

this Is the lirst of three after his ascensiou

been dead and had been brought back to tin

to utter wtnt he Heard ln paradise (II (Jor.

resurrection of Lazarus led to many believ

ntnercass In which the Lord snw that a res.
urreollon would be the means of lending
many to Him. It does not seem as If Dorcas
would have been sent from paradise back to

been Informed of the results that would fol

know of nny results from the resurrection of
tr.e many who rose when Christ did (Jluth.

their resurrection, and no doubt the result
which Ood intended. I think they wont with

Great sorrows never leave us what we
were before. None can pass under t tint ham
mer nnd remain the same. After a great
buptism of sorrow we must be different :
but what we should pray ami strive for is
that we may emerge from it better, richer,
more faithful, more helpful, more filled with
n heartfelt delight in Clod's will, more able
to make a true answer to (iod's surprises
and wonders ot love. There ure periods In
life, yours and yc;ir", when no great trouble
visits us. Then the storms of sorrow full,
and we are apt to sny.l have passed througli
aud 1 may hope for au immunity
for the future. It Is not so. The
troubles may come back, they may come
back again worse. As has been siiid, our
Phurnohs are seldom drowned In the Ited
sea, and we do not often behold their
corpses stretched upon the sand. Tho bit
terness of death may return. What then?
At the very Worst the memory of the past
will help us. We shall retrace the slow,
difficult way to peai: our trust In (iod will
be deepened, and we -mill realize that, after
nil, the range of sins aud sorrows is limited,
though the sea ot troubles may roll its white

tainly one should not cultivate the habit of
looking on tho dark side, especlallv when
he must draw on his forebodings and appre
hensions lor a vision of that dark side, nnd
thus Bee not only what does not exist, but
what may never exist. (Iod promises grace
for each time of need, but not for each time
of worry and an; e-ty. He promises to be
with His people when they pass through the
tire, but Hedoes not promise to extinguish
the (Ire before It has been lighted, lie says
that when His people pass through the
waters they shall not overflow them, and we
ought to be satlMlcd with that. If we trust
tn Ood, the disasters we dread most will
never come, or, If they do. He will change
tho disaster into benediction. Herald iiud

The true sign of forgiveness Is not some
mysterious signal waved from the sky : not
some obscure emotion hunted out in your
heart ; not some stray text culledout of your
lllble ; certainly not some word of mortnl
priest tellinir you thnt Your satisfaction Is
complete, The soul full of responsive love
to Christ aud ready, longing, hungry to
serve him is Its own sign of forgiveness.
Must there not be sorrow for sin ? Must
there not be resolution of amendment? Sure
ly there must, but it is not sorrow for sin for
the sake of the sorrowfulness that Jesus
ever wants. Ho wants sorrow for sin onlv
thnt it may bring escape from sin.. . .1 think
thnt with nil we know of the divine heart of
Jesus he would far rather see a soul trust
him too much, if that is possible, than trust
too little, which we know is possible enough.

Ono of the quaint old New Eogl iutl
fishing towna that ktill retains its) aa
cientair nnd original industry iri ttat
of Gloaoester. Mass. The entire (own
is given over to II shin? interest and
most of its inhabitants are eugnged in
this pursuit, ln fact, it is about the
only truly fishing; town on the ooaat,
most of the other erstwhile famous
ports having abandoned this industry
lor that of manufacturing. It seems
fitting that a system of iiroserviug
fresh fish should originate iu this
town, which, if it is proved entirely
suoceasful, will do much to revolution
ize the present methods of fishing. An
ingenious skipper of this town con
ceived the idea of equipping his liont
with a modern refrigerating plant aud
Ireeziug the lisb. solid immediately
upon their lieiug caught, instead ot
waiting until reaching laud to freeze
them, as is usually doue.
Since being fitted with refrijeratin
machinery it is the rutssiou ol this
skipper's boat, tho Tilled, to Ito iu the
vicinity of soiuo fishing ground, and
there to receive and freeze tisli fresh
from the net of the fishermen. Tim
squirming aud wriggling lisli are
brought to tho sido of tho vessel I y
the tisbormeu iu boats. From the
boats they are transferred quickly tn
the deck of tbe Tillod mid shovelled
throuvh convenient scuppers, or holes,
iu the deck to the bold below, where
the temperature has been reduced sev
eral points below zero. Tho lisb 'ii
falling laud upon n shelf itrraiict'd
over a eoil of pipes, and on which they
are levelled by a mau with a rnko to n
depth of two lisb. Almost before tins
has beeu done the lisli, alivo and kic'.i
iug as it entered the scupper, is Irozcii
still, aud a very few minutes Million to
coat it with a quick frost, in which
condition it reuiuius until taken out
This process is repeated with oueli
successive layer or elicit', uutil tin; sup
ply of lish is exhausted iu that locality
or tho vessel's hold becomes tilled, it
having a capacity of 'MM ) barrels.
This idea of freezing lish ilnring the
summer months iu a vessel specially
fitted for the purpose is distinctly
Dew, and it is probable that in a few
vmirs it will work a revolution iti the
Chief umoiig the claims for this en
terprise is that the lish lose by preser
vation Hcnrcdy any of their important
.dements or delicacy. This, however,
.aniiol be be -iiul of lish frozen in tin
freezers) nu lau l, the reason for which
is obvious. A fish to bo good when
fro.eu must be preserved as quickly
is possible) ult t it leaves tho water.

Oreat Place for Frogs.
"In Chickahominy and contiguous
swamps," says the Richmond Dispatch,
"Virgiuia raises bigger frogs, liner
frogs, fatter frogs and prettier frogs
than any other State in the Union.
Moreover, these frogs can jump
higher, jump further, splash more
water when they do jump, and emit a
greater variety of notes in tbeir con
certs than any other frogs on tho face
of tbe globe. It is a poor specimen,
indeed, of the Chicahominy frog thnt
could not, even after a dinner of shot,

hud a few feet to spare."
They tell this story of Lord Ko-o-bery,
