wiiys ready to do anything for tlioio
whom ho liken except niiiko an effort.
A few days ago lio wm called to thu
chair by Vlco President Morton. The
presiding olllcerof tho senate is supposed
to bo tho personification of dignity. He
is HupHwed to Im) tho living cuihoditnuiit
and representative of Hint quality wlileh
tho Amurlcnu Iioiiho of lords npinni to
prlro moro highly than ability or oven
wealth. Itnnglnu tho coiiHternatlon of
audi grnvo and reverend senators, stick
lcrs for nil tho dignities, an Edmunds,
Ingalls, Diiwea and Hoar, when they
looked up nnd lehoId thin senator,
with his two elbows renting on tho
Ico president's desk, his head wtwirily
reposing in his hands liko n lary
schoolboy when tho teacher's kick is
turned. Sonntor Dawes leaned over nnd
whispered to Edmunds, and St. Jerome,
scowled nnd twiddled his lingers under
his now, ns ho always does when im
mensely pleased or considerably worried,
No doubt tho senator wns tired, for n
senator wns making a speech on n well
known bill tho samo speech which ho
had already delivered three or four times
in tho senate chamber. Onco tho anxious
sticklers for senatorial dignity thought
tho presiding oftlcor was going to sleep.
He did close his eyes and once ho nod
ded, as much as a man can nod when his
Jowls aro resting llrmly in his hands.
It tills senator had gono to sleep Ed
munds, Hoar and Ingalls would havo
boon angry enough to inovo his expul
sion from tho Bcnato. They would havo
deemed tho body disgraced beyond re
demption oxcopt by Botnu summary and
desporato proceedings.
Tills particular senator is always tired.
Ho Is probably tho only man in congress
who Is never seen walking down Venn
sylvnnia avenue from tho capital. Ho
always rides. Ingalls says thcro should
bo somo sort of a tramway in tho Capitol
for tho accommodation of men liko him
who occasionally want to go over to tho
bouse. This senator is tho man who is
accused of purposely spreading tho re
port tlireo or four years ago that ho nnd
President Cleveland had quarreled, in
order to save himself from being
troubled by ofllccseekers. Ho rarely
makes a dpecch. Tho lost ono ho inado,
I am told, ho dictated to his stenog
rapher whllo lying In bed, as Dr. John
son used to dictato to his amanuensis,
Mr. Hector.
If ho is tho laziest ho is not tho only
lary man In tho senate. What do you
suppose tho great senators are doing be
tween tlio hours of 13 and 0 o'clock tho
hours in which tho majority of them
will receive neithor cards nor notes from
Impertinent people who would disturb
them? Devising groat plans for tho wel
fare of tho country? Preparing eloquent
speeches? Conferring solemnly on mat
ters of state? Oh, not Go into tho cloak
rooms and thero you will find ninny of
them taking their oaso. Hero aro easy
chairs, lounges, divans, barbers, servants,
and such a lazy lot of bcnatorsl They
recline, lean, sit upon tholr spines, rumi
nate, converso and smoke. Tho stoiies
that aro told, tho jests that are passed
NO CAKDS UNTIL AFTEU 2,
round, tho mots that aro repeated o'er
and o'er in that npurtmcut, literally fur
nished with nil modern comforts. If
those walls had cars and tongues thoy
could a tale unfold -but thoy have
neither, And tho servitors, fortunatoly
for themselves and their masters, aro a
discreet as they are obsequious.
One day last week observers from the
galleries would easily see that something
unusual was going on in tho cloakrooms
.of the senato on the Democratic side.
'There was a running in and out from
brihtMMof theofawubw. Grave sena

HWl I iH'!
HE'
tors whocntered glum as oysters emerged
smiling liko premiere daiiHouHos, Loud
laughter occasionally camo rolling out
tho open door, Within a half hour nearly
ovcry memlKr of tho senate had spent a
moment or two In tho retiring room. This
was n mystery which roused my curi
osity, nnd 1 determined to investigate.
My effort wero rownnled with success!
oimI, dear reader, what do you think It
wan? Something dignified, Important,
ntalosmanliko? Not much. One of tho
senators, whom I shall not name out of
rv8oct for his gray hairs, had just re
ceived from n friend In New York a vllo
jviHr, purortlug to bo a letter from a
solicitor's firm in London, informing tlio
addrcssco that ho hud fallen heir to an
ostato in England, and just ns tho inter
est was fully roused tho reader turned tho
page, only to como upon n wretched pic
ture. Human nature In pretty much tho
samo in tho senatorial cloak roouiB as out
of It.
These lar.y senators who will not re
ceive cards or notes lxforo 3 o'clock aro
aristocrat, and lmxirtlnent aristocrats
at that, and I am for swooping them out.
I can't coucelvo what tlioy aro sent to
congress and paid $111 a dny for nnd given
private secretaries and committee clerks
and no end of luxuries nt tho govern
ment oxHnso, unless It is to servo their
constltuenUi nnd others having buslneas
with government olllclnls. Swing callers
would certainly lw bettor employment
of time than lounging in tho cloak rooms
listening to tales which tho society for
promotion of social purity would not Ihj
likely to indorse. When 3 o'clock comes
most of these high nnd mighty senators
slip down their prlvntu stairways, which
no outsldurs' feet nro permitted to pro
fane, to their privato lunch rooms In tho
senato restaurant, to which no man not
a senator is admitted unless nt a senator's
invitation. Boon afterward, as a rule,
tho scnii'ogocs into that fudgy and ridic
ulous condition known ns executive ses
sion, nnd when the lell strikes three
times all doors must ho closed and every
man jack of an American citizen must
make tracks. Even in committee rooms
tho samo un-American and ofTo.islvc ox
clusiveuess prevails. Messengers are
stationed at tho doors to keep oil in
truders, nnd many of these messengers
seem to think thoy own tho Capitol. At
tho door of tho room of tho commltteo
on privileges nnd elections tho other dny
I naked tho guard nt tho door if tho
commltteo was in session. No. Thou
could I go in to sco a senator whom I
know to bo thuro. No.
"And why not, pray?"
"Ono of tho senators is insido, dictat
ing, and ho docs not want to bo dis
turbed." "Hut I do not want to sco that senator.
I will not speak to him, and will not
disturb him. Surely tho commltteo room
is largo enough for three or four of us."
"No matter. Tho senator is dictating,
and ho does not want to bo annoyed,"
A CORNER OP THE I10U8K.
And tho understrapper, who probably
controls n fow votes in somo ward in a
clouo legislative district, actually locked
tho door In my face.
All this is n cover for laziness, and
l&zlncss in public servants, particularly
when combined with unnecessary exclu
sivoncss, is intolerable. In ono respect
tlio senators aro moro decent in their
laziness than tho members of tho house.
Senators do not parado their Indolence
boforo tho multitudo. Go over to tho
houso of representatives, take a seat in
tlio gallery, and scan a corner of tlio hall
in tho rear of tho Beats.
Thcro is a bright wood flro burning in
an open grate. If wood cost $30 a cord
and coal GO cento a ton, the statesmen
would insist uikhi warming their shins by
n wood flro. Thero aro easy chairs and
lounges. Every ono is occupied. A row
of distinguished men sit on their spines,
with their chairs tilted bock and their
feet on tho wall. On tho lounges rcclino
other distinguished men, fast asleep.
Somo unbutton their collars for comfort's
sake, and occasionally somo of tho states
men from tho rural districts take oil their
shoes and turn their big feet toward tho
flro and sleep and grunt and oven snoro
in tho acmo of comfort. And all this in
public, boforo tho oyes of a thousand or
two of spectators in tho hall of tho houso
of tho representatives of tho people It
Is not pretty.
Evidently tho doctrine of Congressman
Stockdale, of Mississippi, has many sup
iwrters in tho senate nnd house. Stock
dalo says his Idea of heaven Is a placo in
which thcro is nothing to do, whero ex
istence Is a stato of perpetual inactivity,
whero oven drawing tho breath of eter
nal life calls for no effort. Whllo roll
calls and speeches and dreary readings n
tho clerk's desk aro going on In tho
house hundreds of m?n sit and dozo and
rust and forgot a good deal of what thoy
onco know. Laziness Is ono of tho great
ovils of publio life. Intompornuco has
been drh en out. Perhaps wo shall have
to rouso publio sentiment luto a crusudo
against Indolcnco.

CHOCTAW LEGENDS.
Itraalt of n Iutrvliw with Chlof rtr
I'llolilytiti.
IBjhIaI (xrrnixii(tmce.1
Kansas City, Feb. 13. In a recent
talk with tho Choctaw chief, Peter
Pitchlynu, ho told me of n very curl
ous legend in relation to tho origin o( a
subdivision of his trlln' known ns tho
"Crawfish," or Crajilsh band: "Our
jH'oplu havo among them a baud who
formerlybut at a very remote crlod
of antiquity, long In'foro tho separation
Into Creeks (or Mus-Uo-geo's) Semlnoles,
Choctaws, etc. had their abodo in thu
earth, under thu mud and soft places
near tho rivers and streams, out of which
they sometimes como and bask in tho
sunshine. They were moro like a lobster
or crayllsh than human beings, and
walked on 'nil fours,' or rather on their
claws.
"Their principal plaeo of residence
was n great limestone cavo, far down in
the bowels of the earth, whero thero was
no light, nothing but Cimmerian dnrk
ncM, nnd they had no language, nor
could they understand a word that was
sK)ken to them,
"Tho entrance to this cavo was jKml
bio only by wiggling down through tho
mud, and thoy used to Hcamicr away
the moment they were seen, so that tho
Choctaws were for many generations
unable to get near them, although they
would lay In wait for them for months.
"Ono day, however, a number of them
were surprised so suddenly that they did
not havo lime to go their usual route
through thu mud Into their cavo, but
were forced luto It by u secret opening
thoy had in tho rocks!
"Tho Choctaws then attempted to
smoko them out, and at last, by persist
ent effort, succeeded. Thoy treated them
kindly, taught thorn to talk Choctaw, to
walk erect, inado them cut off tholr too
nails and pull out tho hair from their
bodies. After whloh they adopted thorn
into the tribe, but tho majority of them
aro still underground!"
Hall playing seems to bo common
among nil tribes, but it is conceded that
tho Choctaws, in their prlmltlveness,
were thu most skilled In this game. Of
course It Is not at nil similar to tho Amer
ican national game In any particular,
and is played with two bats or stickx.
These sticks are bent into an oval loop
at ono end, with a web of lino buck
skin thongs stretched across them to
prevent tho ball from falling out when
caught or tossed. Ono of these bats is
held in each hand, and the players catch
the ball by jumping into tho air, and
throw it from the bats, novcr allowed to
strike it or catch it with their hands. In
every houso I visited I saw ono or moro
pairs of these peculiar bats, according to
tho number of liialu residents.
In tho primitive days of these peoplo,
It was an invariable law of tho game
that no player should wenr moccaslsn
on his feet, and appear only with tho
prcscriled dress; that is, in his "breech
clout," a beautiful head bolt, nnd tall
made of white hurso hair or quills, and
a mane around his neck constructed of
tho samo material as tho tall, dyed in
colors.
Tho match was usually mado up
months before tho day agreed upon, and
led by two champions, or captains, as
wo should call them. Thcso two cap
tains had tho power to go through tho
tribe, from village to village, and alter
nately chooso tho men for their re
spective sides. This cholco of players
was effected generally by proxy; two
runners wcro sent armed with a pair of
"ball sticks," elaborately ornamented
with paint, ribbons nnd other gowgnws,
which, touched by tho players selected,
was an ovldcnco that they accepted, and
would bo on hand at tho tlmo specifled
and prepared to tnko part.
Each set of playors erected on tho
ground whero tho game was to tako placo
two upright poles aliout thirty feet high,
and six feet apart, across the top of which
another polo was fastened. Thcso goals,
or "byes," as thoy woro called, were
somo eight hundred feet apart; at a
point just half way between thoso goals
was driven a small stake, whero the lull
was to bo thrown into tho air at a given
signal, usually tho tiring of a gun.
All these preliminaries wero arranged
by old nion, who wero tho judges or um
pires of tho ganio; thoy drew n line
from ono goal to tho other, across which
all tho betting was mado and placed in
tho xssesslon of "stako holders" tho
night before tho ganio commenced.
Everything conceivable that wigwam or
flcld possessed was staked, and princi
pally by tho women of tho trlbo as bet
tors. On that night, too, all tho playors as
sembled around tholr respective "byes,"
whero, under tho glow of torches, tho
beating of "tom-toms" and tho songs of
tho squaws, thoy for moro than n quar
ter of nn hour Indulged in the pictur
esque "Ball-Play danco," in their proper
dress, and rattling their sticks together,
all tho tlmo chanting ns loud as they
could. Mcanwhilo tho women who had
staked their goods formed themselves in
two rowB on tho "lino" between tho re
spective players and also danced, join
ing in musical appeals to the "Great
Spirit" to decido tho gamo in favor of
their side.
At tho small stake, from which tho
ball was to bo thrown at tho opening of
tho gamo on tho morrow, four old "med-'
Icino men," who wero to perform tho act
of "throwing tho ball," wcio busily puff
ing at their pipes, smoking to the "Great
Spirit" for success in impartially judging
tho guuio, as their duties of umpires de
manded. Sometimes seven or eight hundred
players took part in tho game, and when
tho contest commenced a ten ible strug
gle ensued to catch tho ball on their
sticks and throw it home between their
respective stakes, which counted one.
When this happened there was a short
halt; then tho ball was started again by
the judges, and whichever tldu in that
aiunner counted a huudrcd won.

A watch factory in Philadelphia has
ns assayer of metals a young lady.. She
took a four years' courso in chemistry at
tho TJnlveraity of Pennsylvania.
I was not satisfactory. That was all tho
mitlsfactlofi I could get from htm. I
found out tho next week that he had a
brother-in-law. That was the reason I
was dished. You can lct I was dis
couraged. I had saved up a littlo money
nnd concluded to take things easy until
It ran out. One day I was strolling
mound town when I met a chance nc
qalntnuce who suggested that wo go luto
u tool loom near by and see how tho
horses wero running. Well, sir, will you
believe It? I ielded to thu allurements
of tho turf and picked n winner tho first
tlmo. I mado f 10 that day,
"The next day I showed up again, I
didn't know thu first thing about horses,
but concluded to stick to ono jockey, In
three days I had won $250. That settled
mo for awhile. I lived high, wontnround
In cabs and had exennlvo dinners. My
money ran out In about a week, Then I
went back to my gold mine. 'Of what
use,' I thought to myself, 'is there in
slaving for your bread, when nil you
havo got to do Is to pick wlunersV But
this tlmo my gold mine didn't pan out.
I Ix'gan to seo Hint tho ability to pick
winners was limited, nnd tho result of
my littlo venture was that I had a high
old tlmo for about a week, and came out
dead broke. Then I did a littlo thinking,
concluded that 1 had had enough of tho
turf, and made up my mind to work.
Once more I scanned the advertising
columns of thu papers, and this time I
saw that a firm in Kansas City wanted
a competent stenographer, Thoy tele
graphed mo to como on, and I borrowed
enough money to pay my faro and keep
mo n fow weeks, nnd skipped the town,
I stayed in Kansas City for a year at 20
a week, and never was treated better in
my life.
"But at tho end of tho year I con
cluded to get back home. My peoplo
wanted mo to como back, so I guvo up
my job. I hadn't been in town moro
than a week before I got a position in a
railroad olllcu at $75 a mouth. Things
in a railroad olllcu ran along just uknit
so, anyway, so thorn's nothing much to
tell there. Everything was lovely until
I got a chance to go with a commission
house nt thu samo salary. I thought it
would lw great sport to go 'down on
'change everyday and hobnob with capi
talists, so I took tho job as soon ns it was
offered to me. I stayed thero three
months, hut there was a man in the
olllcu who didn't liko ma One day I
got n letter tolling mo thu samu old story.
This tlmo I know fl was no use to kick,
so I quietly left. Then I knocked around
town for about a month, steering clear,
howover, of tho pool rooms, when I got
a chance to go into another railroad
ofllco. This tiuio my salary was only
300 a month, but I was glad to tako any
thing. "In tho meantime my old employer In
tho Insurance olllco whero I llrst worked
had been making overtures to mo, but I
had steadily resisted him. I had left him
in a moment of pique, and I was too
proud to acknowledge that I had mado a
mistake. This thing kept up for somo
time, until finally I yielded. I went back
to my old placo at $20 a week, On tho
1st I was raised to $100 n month."
"How long woro you absent from your
old place?" said I.
"Just two years, flvo months and ono
day," ho replied. "I supposo many peo
plo will think I havo wasted my tlmo. I
toll my friends, howover, that If a roll
ing stono gathers no moss it acquires
somo polish,"
"But," said I, "supposo you had stuck
by your present business thcso two years
and a half, how far along would you bo
now?"
"I might havo been manager," ho re
plied. Tom Masson.

Vienna, Jan. 28. In traveling over
Europe one meets, as a matter of course,
many dishes not often found in Amcii
can restaurants and hotels, and many
dishes one is familiar with aro cooked
and served sons to bo almost as novel as
thoso entirely now.
In Liverpool I got a reclpo for York
shire pudding, and this is it: Twenty-five
minutes leforo dishing up your roast
beef, pour out of thu pan one-half of the
gravy into a dish for future use. Beat
up two or four eggs with us much Hour
as will make a light batter, with threo
tablcspooufuls, or six, of milk. Lift out
your meat and pour this batter into tho
dripping pan, nnd replaco tho meat and
bfiko It tho twenty-flvo minutes, and
servo hot with tho meat. Tho pudding
will bo light and permeated with tho
tasto of tho meat and gravy, and is de
licious. At Shooburyne8s, nt tho homo of one
of tho officers of tho School of Gunnery,
I found this new nnd savory manner of
serving cold roast mutton, when it had
been carved until tho bono was not blirht
ly, and tho slices wcro too small to send
to tho tabic For ono pound of sliced off
cold mutton tako ono quart of onions
and fry them until tho rank smell is
gono nnd thoy nro almost half done.
Tako one-half n pound of stalo bread
crumbs, and then put a layer of onions,
ono of meat and ono of crumbs, until
they nro all on a deep earthen dish, fin
Ished with a layer of crumbs. Of coune,
salt and pepper; then put this in the
oven for a good hour, and it is enough
to give one a Coney Island appetltu to
smell it, nnd it is thoroughly good.
Thero Is something in tho way of cook
ing tho Yarmouth bloaters and kippciod
herring that we cannot achieve, and 1
think It is because our fires are different.
Thu English toast them down In fiout of
n fire, not over it, and then put a bit of
butter and a dust of pepper and you have
n savors morsel which looks and smells
temptingly and in cheap. Thero also thoy
loast their meat befoio the giate, Instead
of baking it, and though theio bcoms to
be no difference, the meats tastes quite
differently, and all in favor of rousting.
