we hrtll bear, doubt less, from the

For the past six months the people of
I'ltanon have been tortured .with a
bad mail service. Fevcral petitions
have been presented to the Posto filet
Department without effect, letters
have lxvu written to Senator Mitchell,
whieh'al.soseem to have been "shelved"
in the department. Finally Mr. Her
man, our wide-a-wake Uepresen t ati ve,
was urgitl to give the matter his atten
tiosi, a'nl on the l2th inst. he received
tt Utter from the Postmaster General
in refrnrd to the mail service between
' lA-banon and Allmny. A request w-as
made that the mail between theso two
j'l.ints le carried by the Oregon & Call
fiirnia Railroad Company, and the
liptmaster ieneral said that the "re-
qut' would be granted. The j-ailroad
cvnnpany, however, declines to accept
the strvice for the compensation allow
ed by the Department, and Herman
now proposes to ask the Postofflee De
partment to re-establish the old Star
Koute service. We have every confi
dence in Mr. Herman's determination
to stay with Mr. Vilas or some one
else, until he wts us what we want.
- WASHINGTON LETTER.
With approach of holidays and con
sequent demand for poultry, we give
the following notes concerning the pre
paratlon of birds for market:
Iry Picking and Sculstic.
Iry picked carcasses always bring a
higher price in market than those that
have been f cabled, yet for htmie use,
scalding. Is much more preferable, as It
not only facilitates the picking off of
the feathers but cleans the skin and
carcass, which Is sometimes very nee-
ssary with birds that have not born
properly kept, L iuess one Is an ex-
lert at killing the fowls, so as to know
th exact moment when tlie feathers
will loosen from the skin and come ff
the work becomes very tedious and
ilsagree&ble, but there is an art in
properly killing the birds so as tomak
he matter of picking less lalsorlous.
The question is ,v however, whether
there is cruelty practiced In attempt
msr to kill the birds in a certain man
ner, and it is only right and proper t
take the suffering of the birds into
consideration. It is a practice in the
West to kill the birds and then dip
them in scalding water, following Im
mediately by dipping the carcass in
cold water, tlven beginning to pick.
We have never tried the method but it
is claimed for it that the feathers will
come out easily while the appearance
of the birds is similar to those dry
picked. If this is true it will be of ad
vantage to poultrymen and prevent
much unnecessary cruelty.
. Shipping In Winter.
Kill all poultry before sending to
market at this season, for it is cruel to
subject live birds to the exposure of a
journey if the weather is liable to le
cold, w bile dead poultry will keep for
a long time. Pack In clean straw, and
arrange the carcasses so as to have
them as uniform in appearance as pos
sible. It always pays to assort the
stock, so as to .secure the highest prices
for yie best. When good and inferior
are shipped together the prices are reg
ulated by the inferior grade. Corres
pond with your commissiommerchant,
and make full arranjrements, before
shipping, in order to save time.
While large turkeys are always sale
able and in demand, yet there are
more sales of small turkeys than of
the larger sizes, especially at those sea
sons not near Thaksgiving and Christ
mas. Hen turkeys are superior to gob
blers and young touts are octter than
two and three-year-old birds, But
there is also a demand for Very large
turkeys by a- oertalu class, and they
bring good prices, though those of the
best quality are the smaller ones.

On next Jlonday, the Fiftieth Con-gri-s
will assemble at the Capitol, ac
cording to a time honored custom, and
organize for the long session. The
tiivt day will be devoted to nueh pre
liminaries as administering the oath
of office to members, and the drawing
of seats. The latter process is decided
ly amusing to witness.
, The members retire to the rear of the
Hall and stand impatiently like so
many school boys. The clerk of the
House liolds a list of the members'
names arranged alphabetically, with
the number opposite. A. blind-folded
puge stands beside him with a box
containing as many marbles as there
pre members of Congress at present,
each marble bearing a number.
Tlie page takes a marble out ot the box
and passes it to a second clerk on his
right hand, w-ho calla out the number
upon it- The first clerk reads out the
name of the representative opposite
that number on his list-, and the latter
comes forward and selects his seat.
The stats near to and in front of the
speaker are first chosen, while those
members who are so unlucky as to be
late in the lottery, are t?omrelled to
take seats in the rear and near the
sides of the Hall, where they find it
difficult, to catch the speaker's eye.
There is mnch new material for the
new session; many new and inexperi
enced members, who will, for the first
time, engage in the discussion of busi
ness of great national importance. Ex
speaker, Carlisle, remarked that it
would take some time to become ac
quainted w ith the abilities of the new
men and know where to place them
on the committees. It is therefore
probable that the first month will be
consumed in perfecting the organiza
tion and getting into working ordtr.
After tlie holiday recess, Congress may
be expected to settle down " to work

In a very fine, elaborately furnished
one of these beautiful palaces of crime
and debauchy, where everything1 has
to be kept inviting, clean and neat, a
lazy bar-tender complained of thejie
cessity of having to rub congealed
drops of sticky beer off the bar. "But
if I let them reqiain," said he In the
tone of one seeking compassion, "they
rot the wood." -
"They xot the wood, do they?"
fiercely repeated a beer-bibler. "Then
what in the name of common sense
does beer do to. my stomach ?"
lterlied the manipulator of drinks:
"It is beyond me to tell. Of one thing
I am confident, . and that is man's
stomach is made of east-iron. Else
wise, how could he withstand the flu
ids he poUrs into it? Let me show you
something." He placed a piece of raw
meat on the counter, and dropped up
on it a small measure of imported gin
ger-ale. In five minutes the meat had
parted into little pieces as though
hacked by a dull knife.
It is not surprising that beer-drink
ers are Jield by life insurance compa
nies to be extra hazardous risks.
