Many of these Senators hnve peculiar

sit Jn the chamber. Senator Hoar is

has'two pairs of glasses for his eyes.
One is a pair of spectacles which I

which they are fastened, and twirls
them around between his thumb and

another man who moves about the Sen

a strut, and the atmosphere about him
seems permeated with thé word
“game.” He has a way of throwing
back his head and waving his long
beard with déliant air. He often pulls
this beard, grasping a whole handful at
the chin, and twisting the hair slowly as
he goes downward the full foot of its
length. He affects some eccentricities
of dress. He is noted for wearing I
clothes of the finest quality, and he oc
casionally has ruffles on his fine linen

a place for them w here the ground can be

which will hold up the soil you have re-
