Vnder the Cooper Iuetituto is a large hall, where Abraham Lincoln made the great speech which called the attention of the east to him as a presidential quantity tha year before he be came president After Lincoln had been beaten by Douglas for senator ha was brought out for president at tho town of Decatur, where ths Illinois State Republican convention was hold, in May, 1859. Gov. Oglesby then an nounced that an old Democrat desired to make a contribution to the convention. Two fonoa rails ware then brought in, decorated, and inscribed: "Abraham Lincoln, tho rail can didate for the preaidenoy in 100." The two rails ware from a lot of 3,000 made in 18.' SO by Thomas Hanks and Abe Lincoln. For about fifteen minutes there was tremend ous cheering and excitement Lincoln took the platform, and gave his reminiscences of making rails. He then visited Kansas, Ohio, and, finally, New York. He arrived in this city February 25, 160, on an invitation to speak at Beocher's church in Brooklyn. He spent a whole day at the Aator house on Satur day, reviewing this elaborate address; and, having gone to hoar Beecher on Sunday, ho spoke at the Cooper Institute on Monday night Tho platform was crowded with the Republican loaders of tho city, Peter Cooper among them. Wm. C Bryant presided, and the solid and elaborate character of the address satisfied the Republicans here that if Seward did not get the nomination, aud Lincoln did, there would not bo such a great difference in the men. 6wa.

It has been the custom to talk of a man's wanting to come home and put on his slippers and dressing-gown, both physically and men tally, and needing no intellectual mate to help him do it; but that sort of talk which inti mates that there is but one party to the home, and that one the man, ceases to have much yaluo in the light of the now scarcely con troverted admission that every woman ia an individual, with the rights of oue Still, any oue would suppose it self- evident that if a woman is allowed a c&rKr, she would be all the mora fit, when evening came, for tho dresstng-gowned and slippered condition herself, and so all tha mora a genial mate for the husband seek ing relaxation in his home.

St Paul Pioneer-Press. It is rather curious to observe that France, Italy and Germany, hitherto wedded to bare floors and center rugs, are now coming into the full use of unmitigated carpets in the corners as well as tho ceuters of the rooms, just as we are beginning to adopt their mode of doing without There is no gainsaying that carpets are warm and snug all winter, no matter how full of dirt they-may become by spring, when they can be easily cleaned A carpeted room has a cosy, home-like aspect wnicn no room wua a waxeu noor can possi bly possess, no matter how gorgeous or rsthetic is its contra Abuston or Scinde ; and it is certainly lees trouble to keep it looking cleanly, as all can testify who have the care of polished wood floors, showing ere.-y drop of water, boot-heel mark, or speck of dust The dull, neutral tints, the discharge of all colors, which taste nowadays declares is true art, can easily be arrived at on our floors, with out leaving hare, or paying great prices for B-stliatiC patterns.

Peck's Sun. The bald-headod Sun man answered a tele phone call on Saturday last, and a man's voice spoke about having some business with tha editor, and he was asked to step up to the office. His answer waa, "Why, thunder and lightning, man, I am in Ripon." That knocked the editor cold, and he gave tha man a soft answer, when suddonly a female voice asked who it was talk ing, and on being told it was the bald-headed Milwaukee man, she said, "Why, good heavens, I am the operator at Fond du Lvx" That knocked the editor colder, and after a fow words another female voice obipped in and said the owner of it was in the Onnkosh office. The thing was getting interesting, snd tha editor waa just going to get in his work, giving the Oshkosh girl a breeze, and tell her to be ware of Colorado senators, when another girl broke the connection with a laugh that fairly paralyzed him. He thought it was an old time laugh that he knew, and he began to smile right through the telephone, when the girl said she was a total stranger at Green Bay, but she read Tho Sun.

E-reamor, city engineer and super intendent of the Atlantic and Gulf Coast canal and Okeechobee Land company, has issued an interesting statomont of the results thus far attained by that company in its efforts to re claim 11,000,000 acres of low lands in the Flor ida evergladoa The drainage problem means simply the relieving of the land from surface water immecRately after the rainy season. This, it has been demonstrated, can be done by the-construction of can a La and the opening of old river Lods. Tho work already performed has resulted in tho reclamation of 330,000 acres of land, for which the state has donated 14.',000 acroa in return in compliance with tho terms of tho compaaj's contract with the state. A drainage canal, six foot deep and forty feet wide, has been constructed from Lake Tobopokaliga to La'co Cypress, a distance of three and three-fourths mi.es. Work was be- fnu at this point iu July. 13S2. Since then ohopckaliga which has an area of about twentv-four square ruiios, Ua-s been lowered! thirty inchca.

There is now leia cut. a canal. froin Lake Flirt on the upper Calloosihitchie river, to Lake Okeecho bee, a distance of eleven miles, which is de signed to be six feeb d;p aad twe:ity-five feet wide. Operations hive bet-u conducted with out interiuLiaiou during a year. The char acter of the work necessitates the daily exposure of the force to the weather, nothwithaunu'ing which the men have retained their health. It is proposed, by either canals from Lake Okeechobee to tho south and east, to lower the water surface of Okeechobee eight feet below its present level. This onoe accomplished the bordering lands of the lake and etreania tributary will be improved, and upwaru 01 i,ouu,uuu ot ine nonest acres will thus be reuderrt susceptible of successful cultivation.

Ceanaaon Mense Core for lasomnla Youth's Companion. Sleeplessness is more common than at first might be supposed. Its causes are many, but one has lately been discovered by an old Boston physician which seems to contradict the pop alar opinion. It is the want of food. It ia generally supposed to be injurious to eat late at night, but unless dinner or supper has been late, or the stomach disordered, it is in many casos harmless and beneficial, i. e., if one be hungry. This seems horetical, but it is not Food, of simple kind, will often induce sleep. Animals a"ter eating instinctively sloop. Human beings become drowsy after a full moaL Wby?

Wakefulness often is merely a symptom of hunger. tilanple Care for Cold. Feet. The following remedy for cold feet is recom mended by The Fireman's Journal for sedeq. tary suffereis, as well as policemen, car driven and others who are exposed to thejcold: All thit is necessary is to stand ereot and very gradually to lift one's self up upon the rips of the totrs, so as to put all tho tendons of the foot at full strain. That is, not to hop up and down, but simply to rise the slower the better upon tiptoe, aud to remain standing on the point ol the toes as long as possible, than gradually coming to tha natural position. Bepeat this several times, and by the amount of the work tips of the Toes are made to do in sustaining the the body's weight, a suaoient and lively circu lation is set up. - A heavy pair of woolen stock ings drawn over thin cotton ones is also a rec ommendation forjkeeping the feetwarm, and al the same time preventing their becominx tan- Amw m mJm mumm . ' ' ' Vanderbilt and Uia Sana. Goorge Alfred Townsend. From what I hear, William Vanderbilt and his grown-up sons do not always look through tho samo glasses. William's father left the boys largo sums of money, in general 20,000 shares apiece. This has brought them for sev eral years past au annual income of 1160,000. But to Cornelius Vanderbilt, tho old commo dore's oldest grandson, h-s left 0,000 shares, giving him aa income of almost $500,000 a yo ir. These iucomc3, being independent of their father, he boya have used as hey pleased. Cornelia, tlie elder son, is very con servativo, plain aad straight He has built himself a very noble house, but it dooejiot show the architoctur.il t.nfe and quality of that of his next brother, William K, who is the positive member of tha family iu the third generation. Cornelius, Jr., as he is called, has very good qualities, but no very dashing or in novating ones. William K. is a positivo spirit, a sort of Don Camoron among the Vand-jrbilta. Don Cam eron is celebrated for contradicting his father, and saving no when tho old man would say ves. William K. is tha Don Cameron of the Vanderbilts. When he sits down to play poker with his father he makes his sire ante up every time. "Father," ho pvf, "you have not antiod." fcl'e8, I have, Wliiam," says tho old man. "I beg your pardon." s lys tho son, "you antied last time, but not tids time." Then the old man be?" the son's iv don and antes up. Never-heleaa, William K. is described aa being ruled by hia wife. His wife is a voluptuously f ormed'w oaian, rather of tlie dark order.round and tlush, aud exercises that nameless power that the dark women ahvay j have over the men who come to have their fortunes told. William K. would be very much miifed if he read thia notice, because ho is not aware that be ia gov ernedbyhii wife; hut that is the tradUion around the Vanderbilt h'nse, and being a faithful reporter I must tell It The Hnpply of IeeoratIve tVoeaav.
