In a down town cafe the other duy 1
met two Kentlomen hiM namea will
i recall remarkable uin and remarkable
! events in American history. They were
LieuUmaut Fremont and Lieutenant
Lawrence, of the Utiited Stat nary.
The former is the son of the late diatin
euinhed John C. Fremont, "tho Path-
1 finder," who rnn for president of the
United State, and the other was Law
rence, the crHiiJ.son of the hero of Lake
Erie, old "Uoa't give up the ship." That
these two Kentluiuen should come into
the New York lunch room forstmiethiug
to eut aud drink was nothing remark
able, bnt that they should come in urin
and arm, two naval chums, wan anme
tbim? sufficient to stir the imagination.
Lieutenant Fremont is attached to the
new cruiaer Philadelphia, lie ia a Hue
specimen of manhood, aa wan hia father
before him. New York Herald.
Washixuton, Feb. 18. H the Slier
snan bond amendment is amended as
Brice proposed today.it will mean an
pening of the silver question in the
house, which may prevent the passage
ei the sundry civil bill and may delay
other legislation as well. The senate
amendment must be considered in com
mittee of the whole. It ia usual to non
concur by unanimous consent and throw
the bill into conference, but if the silver
ten become aroused upon the amend
ments of Sherman and Uric they will
mot allow any such procedure and once
the bill, with its financial amendments,
is before the house there is no telling
where it will end. The time to do busi
ness in a congress ready to filibuster on
any proposition is becoming very limi
ted, and there is little legislation that
can be passed if any large minority is
opposed to it. It may Iw that the house
will try and force the senate to recede
on its financial proposition in the bill,
and may compel that recession in order
to avert an extra session, Dockery,
Savers, Bland and other silver men in
the house declare the sundry civil bill
shall fail before the Sherman amend
ment shall be agreed to. Silver men
claim it will seriously injure the a hjte
rienator Polph is often able to rush
letrlalatinn throush the senate. Take
the bill ratifying the agreement with
theiilets Indians as an example. The re
port of the commission came in Wedne
day. Senator Polph bad it immedi
ately printed and it was returned to the
senate Thursday. He polled the Indian
eatumiUee, securing, a favorable report
Friday, and passed the bill Saturday.
Jna body like the senate, where the
senators are all personally known to
each other, an influential senator can do
these thing, but in the bouse it is dif
ferent. There are any number of wen
who will, merely for the purpose of ob
jecting aad killing a bill, do so, without
knowing or caring anything about it or
too person interested in it, or whether
r not it will be of vast benefit to any
action of the country, or relieve the dis
tress and right the wrongs which have
been inflicted. It might be that the
Sileta bill can be put through the house
this session, but it will take extra hard
work on the part of Representative Hermann.

In this country only is the turkey
fiuiml in a. wild atatit.. It ia verv fittina.
rVherefore, that in the Christmas dinner
it should be the principal dish. The
turkey must be wisely chosen,' well
sacked and properly served. It should
be short and plump, the meat whit,
with some fat, the legs black and smooth;
mid if there be spurs they should be
abort. The end of the breastbone should
be flexible, more like gristle than bone.
turkey that ia long in proportion to
its sue, and has dark or bluish flesh,
may be tender, but certainly will not be
finely flavored and juicy. A. dry picked
turkey will be fouud to have a much
better flavor than a scalded one. All
poultry that is dry picked costs a few
cents a pound more than the scalded.

The Indian ia a naturally secretive be
ing, biding bis inner character jealously
from the eye of any alien race. He is
called cunning, crufty, morose, revenge
ful aud cruel. So he bus boon toward
those who have made no bids for his
coufldonce and friendeliip other than
thoc otfured by constant efforts to crowd
him from his country, despoil and even
exterminate him. Ho is really by na

good as they; expluin to him the reasou

cease trying to promote his contideuoe

the accepted idea of his race.
He who commands these people best

after he ia sure the nature of the offense

treatment that would do for one man

A noted Paris physician tells the fol
lowing story against himself: "At times,"
he said, "there comes to most people a
doubting of all that has heretofore
teemed the truest. Doctors, as well aa
priests, are subject to these periods of
depression in which they question the
efficacy of their own judgment. In such
a mood, while I was superintendent of
rHospital de , I divided the treat
ment of the wards. In one I exercised
the best medical skill that the aid of !
drags could afford; in the other I ouly
gave as medicine a little acrid water.
This experiment I continued for a month j
with equally good nnmng in both

"And what would you infer from
that?" said hia companion,
"I hardly know," continued the physi
cian. "I wan ouly thankful that the ex
periment did not actually score against
the profession more than it did; bnt on
the principle of doing one's best, I have
goo back to my medicines if not with
absolute confidence, at least with the
consciousness that we can at least aiie-
viate suffering, and, all things Wing

What poetry and sentiment linger
around the old fashioned flruplanol Here
the families gathered, down to the mid
dle of the century in many cases. De
fore one of them in Kentucky the boy
Abraham Lincoln learned to read, the
but iu which he lived being too poorly
furnished even to allow him the saucer
of lard with the burning laropwick float
ing therein. Here the sturdy manhood
and the buxom womanhood lived, loved
aud died, learned, dreamed and went
therefrom to make name and fame or to
plod ou through life in a humble ca
pacity. But those days are gone, and the olo
fashioned fireplace is a thing of the past,

The present state of Europe suggests
to the thoughtful man boot of ques
tions which the ordinary student of for
eign politics finds it hard to answer. Why
has Italy allied herself with her old ene

the peace of Europe? Why are France
and Germany hereditary enemies? What
is the exact ta us of Turkey in European
affairs? Why ia war said to be immi

honor of the inauguration of Cleveland,

The people who attended the enter

Concert company in the Vancouver)
Opera house last evening, were rewardod
by bearing programme of exceptional
merit, such, indeed, as it ia seldom the
good fortune of a Vancouver audience to
listen to. The company is composed of
Tery clever people and all the numbers
of the programme were heartily ap
plauded. The company was recalled
after almost every performance. The
programme opened with the overture
"Poet and Peasant," followed by selec
tion from "Bohemian Girl" by the full
strength of the company. The cornet
nolo by Mies Bertha Hainan was an ex
eeptionally pleasing number, that artiste
bowing great expression in her playing.
She received a hearty Mr.

Arrow and the Song," held the audience

evening's performance was crayon
