Col. Frederick Grant is th eldest
son. .He is about years of age.
Sq graduated, from "West Point in
1870, and married Miss JTonore of
Chicago, a thoroughly accomplished
young lady, conversant to a far great
er extent than the average of educat
ed ladies, with the languages, and a
charming musician. She is alo pos

college, most of his education there
having been received during his
father's first presidential term. While
at college he devoted his attention
particularly to the law, and .stood very
well in his class. During General
Grant's second term as president the
young man served his father as pri- j

to this city and became assistant

der Steward L. "Woodford. When he
relinquished this ollice he went into
Wall street alone as a broker and I
was very successful. In November, i
1879, he was married to JLis3 I' annie
Ohaffee, the daughter of the ex-United
States Senator Jerome ChalTea-
Miss Chaffee had a largo property in i
her own right, but young Grant never
used a dollar of his wife s fortune in
his business. As a wedding present
Miss OhaiTeo'a father gave her a
Jiouse in Forty-eighth streot near

occupied for a while, This house

in feeble health, and very rarely goe3
out. She is a lady of great refine- j
ment and amiability.
Jesse JR. Grant is the youngest son

Cornell University, and early mani

"" which show great ingenuity; but have
never been brought to public atten

lady then residing in California. He

The First in the Field.
The Bepublicans are first to have
their presidential ticket in the field
thist year. Whether it can be made
of advantage to them is something
to be yet discovered. They will havo
more time in which to do definite
work before the election, and more
time in which to commit campaign
blunders. They will not, probably,
do anything of consequence to ad
vance the prospects of their chosen
leaders, whoever they may be, until
their .Democratic antagonists shall
have inscribed their party leaders on
their banners. There wiU be ratifica
tion meetings, to be sure, and torch
light processions, and any number of
congratulatory speeches; but these
will be but the preliminary gushings
of a political contest that bids fair to
be conducted with all the wonted an
imation of preceding elections ot
such great national interest. The
first ticket presented to the consider-
ation of voters has, however, but a
qualified advantage. The lino be
tween tho contending forces will not
be drawn with exactness until some
4ittle lime after the second" ticket is
presented for popular suffrage. Fixed
partisans, who go for party, right or
wrong, may be definitely set down on
each side. Independent voters will
take their choico as inclination leads
when thoy study the respective plat
forms of jthe opposing organizations
and nofJe the distinctive caliber and
worthiness of the ambitious candi
dates. These are the ones who are
mnuenuai in carrying, one way or
the other, almost all of our recent
national and state elections.
Tho foundation for the pedestal
and statue of Liberty m'Aew York
harbor is completed. It stands on
Bedloe's island and is 91 feel square
at the bottom and riseB 52 feet above
the surface. Upon this tho pedestal
will rise to' a height of 117 feet, while
the statue itself is 157 feet high, mak
ing the total height from low water
832 feet From the top of the statue
the -view will be superb, and olevators
will.'TUri' up through pedestal nd
statue. Tho chief engineering difii
oulty after getting ooin enough for
the work is to devise means for pre
venting the statue from being blown
over by the strong winds.

at the battle of Xavarino, an 1827, he
left the navy and became a profes

just outside the village ot S ang, he
was seen to stop and rest, leaning
against n palm tree, his face covered
with a handkerchief. He rested so
long that somo people tried to wako

was dead. He was buried at the foot
ot the tree, and it was years before
his friends in Europe knew what fate
had befallen him.
4,OtJeetor" llolraan In the Barber Shop
The other day somo Michigan mem
bers who wanted to get a bill through
tho houso appropriating 8300,000
more for one of those never built pub
lic buildings planned a scheme by
which they thought to oircumvent
the vigilant objector. They gave the
barber in the little barber shop under
the gallery next to the Democratic
cloak room $1 upon his promise that
lie would detain Holman as long as
possible the next time the old gentle-
man came in to be shaved.
they watched Holman closely. Final
lv lie arose at a moment when noth-
ing startling was in sight, and walked
back to the barber shop. Once with
in, the barber plied his blandish
ments. He shaved first as slowly as
possible. That through ho suggested
that the judge's hair was entirely too
long. The judge thought not; and,
besides, he was in a hurry. But be
fore lie could get out of tho chair the
barber had snipped off a generous
lock of hair, so ho had to submit to
a prolonged hair cut Then the bar
ber suggested a shampoo. The judge
didn't have time. But the judge needed
it so much. "There !" and the cool
liquid spurted over his head. So his
head was shampooed. Altogether that
ingenious barber used up forty-five
minuto in earning that dollar. Mean
while the Michigan man had been
hard at work "catcmng the speaker a
eye." Ho had to be first told what
his eye was wanted for, and then fol
lowed, the long race for it At last it
was caught 'Mr. Speaker,' said the
eager Michigan man excitedly, with
one eye on tho door of the barber
shop, "I move." But he nevergot
any further, for at that instant Hol
man emerged from the barber shop,
and there was nothing for the Michi
gan man to do but to retreat as grace
fully as possible.
In an interview with the Washing
ton correspondent of the Troy Times
a naval officer declares that it has
been a common trick with mas
ters of crafts that had ceased to be
profitable to place their vessels in tho
way of ships of the navy, sure, in
cas'o they were ran down, of recover
ing damages from the government
as well as tho insurance, if they had
4,Dootor,"paid the grateful patient
seizing the physician's haud. "I shall
never forget that to you I owe my
life." 'You exaggerate," said the
doctor mildly "you really owe mo
for fifteen visits; that is the point
which I hope you will not fnil to ro
member." The Journal of Health says that
a cold may be enredif the patient will
eat nothing for a day or two. This
may account for tho scarcity of colds
among nowspaper men.
Philologists looking for a new and
short name for a telephonic message
