Yes, Woman's love Is free from guile,
And pure as barht Aaron's ray;
The heart will melt before her smile,
And base-bora passions fade sway.
Were I the monarch of the earth.
Or master ot th swelling sea, '
I would not estimate their worth,
Dear woman, bait the price of thee!

We need not write poems on snow, for
snow is itself a poem. Yet has snow, so
lustrous and typical, a side most prosaic
and disciplinary. What says pinched
poverty about snow. What is the feel

sations of tboso Who huddle together in
houses where the roof is frail andthe grate
fa caret Are you, eager readers, mere
contempiatbts, gazing dreamily on the
infinite whiteness, andf thinking of a land
unspotted and unsullied, yea, the very
heaven of purenessf Better turn the
water of contemplation Into tho wine of
charity, and the dream of heaven into the
service of earth. So cold snow should
choke Tip the outlets of the human heart
As the snow comes to warm the earth, so
all the appeals of winter should warm tho
human heart into fuller sympathy with
human IU and need. Ask 100 children to
breakfast this Christmas; or 100 cripples
to dinner; or 100 blind people to an even

From our sjiccial correspondent.
Washington, Dec 14, 1885,
-Washington has como to be the fav
orite place of assemblaiefQ for the great
associations of the country.. During
the week two important organizations
held conventions here. One was the
American Health Association, and the
other was the Federation of Labor
Unions of the United States and Can-
ada. These, with . t ho meeting of thn '
Forty -ninth Congress, inude tho week
one jpf especial interest.
The Banitary gatheiinwas composed
largely of doctors from every quarter"
of the Kejmblic, and among the many
important scientific subject which
they treated exhaustively, was that of
disposing of tho dead. From the ex
pressions used in their debates, it was
w . . a
evident that they had very little rev
erence for a man's rcmaina of f r h .
dies. Thev Were nlmriRr nnariimniiilv .
in favor of cremation.
The Woikingman'8 Congress ordered -that
the eight-hour rule be enforced on
the first of May, and gave expression
to many ether of the laborer's wants
in no uncertain language. They held
a significant mass-in eel ins; and parade
of Thursday evening. It was re
marked by politicians, religionists and
social philosophers who witnessed the
scene, that of all the parades seen on
ocratic, military or inaugural, none
have been impelled by uotiires more
positive than the men who marched in"
this labor parade.
During this first week of the new
Congress, neither the Senate nor the
Houso has done anything riiore than
to prepare for work. As you know.
debates on bills cannot begin until,
committees report tho bills, and as yet
only one bill has been sanctkmod by
sion bill, which reached the Senate to
day. : It will be taken np at once, rf"lfj
though it will giye rise comifdelbler
discussion, it is likely .tifTbe passed
during the week. X all imnortant

with soine of his trusted friends, and
they talk the matter over and over
again. Mem'jers ; write notes to him

committee, where tbey think they will
find the most congenial work.
, It is probable that a revolution in
the business methods of the House will
be adopted during this week, and that
the plan will bo that projiosed by Mr.
Morrison, tho author of the horizon
tal tariffbill of Irat session. The House
began to d;scuss his proposition to-day.
It provides, for a distribution of tbe
work of tho Appropriations committee. '
This object will not be 'accomplished
until after a sharp contest. The strug
gle will not bo in tbe nature of a party
conflict, however, but between those
who think that the plan will facilitate
business and those who think it will
result in increased expenditures to
make such chrvnges at this time.
Thn President naturally feels much
gratified at the almost universal praise
which his first message has evoked.
Nor did he find the first week cf Con
gress so harassing as many expected. -
Senators and Members called upon him
but there were fewer appeals for. ofilco ,
made to him than to any President at
the assembling of Congress for years.
About three hundred of tha Presi
dent's ; recess nominations have been
sent to the Senates for confirmation.
Republican Senators discussed in cau
cus the policy to 1 adopted In regard
to them. There vas an enimatod do
bate and quite a difference of opinion

The Republicans of the nouse
