On Monday, while the District
police bill was under consideration.
Representative Strubble, of Iowa,
arraigned the majority in congress
for giving no attention to the de
nands for temperance legislation,
Jeclaring that it was prohibition or
lubstantial restriction of the sale of
liquor in the District of Columbia
that was needed more than increased
police or police facilities. The com

One of the newest sights of the
capital is the "gospel wagon." It
ii a church on wheels, and is one of
the agencies used by the workers of
the union mission. Kvery Sunday
it passes from one poiut lo auother
where preaching services are held,
ul nearly every evening it carries
christian workers on their evangel
istic trips. Different churches in
the city are interested in the work
of the mission, and their repre
sentatives take part in the meetings
and assist in the missionary efforts
that are being made. Representatives
of a number of the churches have
some oue evening in the week when
they take charge of the "gospel
wagon," and conduct the services
at the several localities in the city
where the services are held. - The
purpose is to reach the class of
people who do not go to church and
whe have no church connections.
The church is in this way brought
to them. The chief field of operation
for the wagon i.t the outskirts of the
city. "It is 20 feet long by 7 feet
wide and 0 and a half feet high. The
wheels are low and of the same size,
so that the box can turn on them,
and all the running gear is unusually
large and strong, having been made
to order just for the purpose. When

Secretary if War, Kndieott, has
recently made a large purchase of army
blaukets iu England. Just the figure
for it. American manufactures are
ignored because an Englishman bids 30
cents apiece less than the American, and
as the government pays no tariff it thus
gets its supplies a trifle cheaper by so
doing; but the money goes out of the
nation and helps to make the trade bal
ance against lis instead of in our favor.
Mr. Ken nuu gives one a ood idea of

300,000 square miles to spare.
A tale comes from the far rorth, above
the Arctic circle, that mammoth carcasses
are found frozen in the ice and that the
Indians chop theiu out aud feed the meat
to their dogs. These carcasses are as
well preserved as if killed but yesterday,
although they have lain for who knows
bow many thousand years in a solidly
frozen state. Undoubtedly these animals
existed coeval with the glacial period and
were iudigcuoua of a tropical climate,
therefore we must reason that this period
came on almost instantaneous; all livjng
animals were tilled by the extreme cold
and before their flesh could putrify, it
became froien and thus it U preserved to
us to-day. Juneau Free Presa

During the thunder si or m Thumluy

small barn at the upper end of town and
badly splintered the corner ast besides
otherwise damaging the building. Miss
Annie Hanson, who was standing in the

Malone was attracted to the house by the
cries of the other children, she fouud the

she had been hit in the left shoulder and
the led side of her face and head was

In the circuit court Judge Taylor has
handed tlown an opinion of some interest
in a esse wherein the Astoria Packing
company hud asked for an injunction
restraining J. W. St V. Cisk from
using the words "Salmon Steaks" on

these words with the secretary of state
and claiming them as a trade mark.
Judge Taylor held that tho words were
inertly descriptive and did not justly
constitute a trade mark, thus denying
the injunction prayed for.
