WEBSTER IN WOOD.
History of Faulted Statue of the Great
iew .nft-iana urator.
Travelers who Journey down the
south shore frequently put the query
"What is it?" to their fellow-tourists.
with relation to a snow-white statue to
be seen on the left of the track, just
before the train halts at the Hingham
station. The glimpse one gets of
the figure as t the cars speed past
is tantalizingly short, and even the
most experienced eye has barely time
to note its likeness to Daniel Webster.
and possibly the additional fact that it
stands upon a low mound at the rear
of a row of buildings. Why, if it i
reaiiy a work of merit, as it appears to
be. it should be fivtm sn lnonnsnionmirf

into existence at all, are questions

ions, a representative 01 me Herald,

specttng the statue, has learned that
the figure was presented to Mr. Sam

cliaseu it at a sale of a wood-carver's
enects. Mr. lulbert placed it upon a
mound of earth in his garden at Dor-
cuesier, wucre ne men resmeo, on the
estate now occupied by Mr. Edwin H.
Sampson. Hall Ilughe's, the sculptor,
examined it while it wt thus located,
and appeared to be much pleased with
it. Lie did not, however, fancy
its position on a mound, and said
to Mr. Gilbert that he ought to have
placed it on the lawn in front of the
house and in view of the street. Upon
Mr. Gilbert remarking that he would
have done so had it been of marble in
stead of wood, the sculptor said it did
not matter of what material the statue
was made, as many fine figures were of
wood. The statue is six feet in height,
in Mr. Webster's favorite and usual
position in a drawing-room, and repre
sents him as he looked a few years be
fore his death. Its bearing is at once
graceful and dignified, and were it
chiseled from marble instead of carved
from wood it would long ago, doubt
less, have occupied a most prominent
position in some public place. It was
probably carved for the figure-head of
a ship. On Mr. Gilbert's removal
from Dorchester, a number of years
ago, he presented the figure to his rel
ative, Mr. Georgo M. Soule, of Hing
ham, who had always admired it. It
was then taken to the town named
and placed in its present position on
the land of Mr. Soule. The latter gen
tleman died several years since. The
figure is painted white, and were it not
for its peculiar location an observer a
few feet away from it would never
suspect that it had not its aristocratic
origin in an Italian marble quarry, in
stead of tracing its lineage back to the
more plebeian associations of an Am
erican forest Boston Herald.
BISCUIT FOR DOGS.
Origin and Development of a Peculiar Loa-
uon uostness enterprise.
iwenty years, ago the business of
making dog biscuit was represented by
a small shop in Holborn, nearly oppo
site Chancery lane, and a weekly sale
01 a coupic 01 tons. Wow there is a
vast factory near London bridge and
another in New York, between which
is a daily output and sale of from thirty
10 iorty tons, ihis dog food is made
of wheaten flour (chiefly that known
as middlings), oatmeal," dates, beet
root and Drairie mpnt. Datpa ve thn
first article of a vegetable or fruity
nature introduced, ana nave Had the
anti-scorbutic effect so desirable in th'
feeding of dogs. For many years they
ouij were cmpioyeu, ana at that time
it was advised that fresh vegetables
should be ffiven twice a week, additional
to the biscuits. Searching for some
thing that would obviate the need for
this addition, it was discovered that
the only vegetable which did not lose
its distinguishing properties under the
great heat to which the cakes are sub
jected in baking is beet root, and as it
has all the desirable elements, for
some years all the biscuits sent out
have contained beet root. The last in
gredient is prairie meat, which is not,
as many suppose, tallow greaves or
butchers' refuse. It is meat from mid
and South America. From it all fat
has been removed, but the most valua
ble gristle and bones remain to be
ground up, and is not only of the high
est quality from a feeding point of view
but perfectly sweet ana good. Anal
ysis has shown that it is much more
nutritious than the beef usually sold in
our butchers' shops, for it contains only
five per cent, of water. London Kews.

The almost forgotten fact that Wm.
A. Wheeler acted as Vice President
of the United States one term, was
recalled by his death, and half-masting J
the flags on public buildings in this
city on the day of his funeral. Mr.
Wheeler, after retiring from office, like
Hyes, his principal in the theft of
the Presidency in 1876, dropped frem
public regard, the contempt and exe-
cration of all truly honest men, living
the remainder of his days in such pain-
ul remorse and obscurity, that both
his mind and body became the easy
prey of insidious disease. '
The people of Washington are grati
fied to learn of the improvement in the
condition of their beloved fellow
citizen, the wealthy banker and phil
anthropist Mr. W. W. Corcoran, who
was lately prosterated with naralvsis.
which at first caused much concern.
Mr. Corcoran's large benefactions
to the city are the famous Corcoran Art
Gallery, with its fine collections of
paintings and pictures, and the Louise
House, where gentleman in reduced
circumstances may find refuge in their
declining days. Although Mr. Cor-
coran is in his 89th year, it is hoped
he may yet be spared for many years
of beneficence and usefulness for he is
an honor and a blessing to his country
and to the world.
The National Rifles have accepted
an invitation to participate in the
competitive drill at Chicago, next
October. The Western bovs would do
well to look to their laurels, if they
expect to defeat the Capital's crack
There is a curious coincidence in the
fact that no sooner docs the man f torn
Maine set sail for Europe, than the
Irish-American club of New York be
gins to boom Mr. Blaine for President,
declaring that while they have no ob".
jections to other candidates, the head
of the old ticket is the man of their
choice above all others. Well, the
Democrats will fervently, wish the
Irish Americans success in their en
deavor to renominate Mr. Blaine, but
fears that hope will not be realized.
This Blaine talk, and the further fact '
that the New Hampshire Republicans .
have resurrected, and are about to
send to the TT. S. Senate "Bill" Chand
ler, political boss, notorious corrnption-
ist, and as bad as all, the fraudulent
President's tool and underling, conclu
sively demonstrates that more than
one defeat will be acquired to chasten
the Republican party.
If the people of Washington could
decide the question, I believe Secretaiy
Lamar would surely succeed to the -
vacancy in the Supreme Court, but we
hare it from good authority that the
Secretary does not desire the position!
as it would shelve him for, life, and
deprive the Nation as his friends
thinkof the great ability of this emi
nent statesman in its cabinets and
councils, where he is best fitted to
serve and shine.
As the Grand Army of the Re
public is incubating anothsr "Depen
dent Pension Bill," which they will '
urge the next Congress to pass, it is
probable that President Cleveland's
veto will again be the country's only
safegard against a measure so unjust
