Tho Famous Structure to Bo:Plac
ed on Exhibition in Chicago
Ciik'aoo, Feb. 5. A new departure in
! thii line of relic warsliip has been taken
in this city. The preliminary steps for
tin? formation of ft corporation whose ob-
I ject is the purchasa und removal to this
i ity of the famous Libby prison, of Ku h
tnand, Va., were taken here yesterday.
The corporation will have a capital of
$100,000 ami has already secured the
option from the owners of the buildings.
Dbriiijr the war this old prison having a
dimension of 9,03'. feet, and built with
600,000 brick, had confined within its
bare walls more than sixty-six thousand
union Koldierri. The company propose
to take the building down in sections,
pack it carefully and remove it to Chi
cago where it will be sent up precisely
ns originally. They will surround it with
another building wirh a glass roof and
on the wall opposite the rear of the pris
on will have a panoramic viow of the St.
James rivrr and the country beyond.
The company expects to complete the re
moval and setting up this year.
Wasitixutox, Feb. .. The education
bill begins its fifth week of consideration
in the senate tomorrow, and Mr. Call has
the floor for a speech upon it. It is like
ly to le set aside temporarily "as hereto
fore for n variety of purposes.
Senator Sulsbury proposes to call up
tomorrow his resolution relating to inter
national coinage for debate and action.
Senator Flatt has given notice of his
purpose to speak tomorrow upon the
tariff and the president's message, though
lie may be delayed by the Saulsbury res
olution until Tuesday, and Senator Tel
ler, if a good opportunity occurs, will
address the senate on the same subject
later in the week.
Senator Beck is booked for a reply at
an early day to senator Senator Brown's
speech upon internal revenue.
Senator Davis expects to call up for
action during the jveek the dependent
Senator Allison i3 expected to make a
report upon the undervaluation bill
Tuesday or Wednesday but will probably
ask that the measure be recommitted for
amendment before it is brought forward
for consideration and action.
Senator Riddleberger promises to be
heard at some length by his colleagues,
and, if htt can effect it by the public as
well, upon ths British oxtraditiou treaty,
and secret sessions.
Tiie Indiana contested election case
will come before the housi tomorrow as
unfinished business, and several hours of
the time will be at the disposal of those
members who wish to speak. If any
time remains afterward Mr. Crain will
seek to have passed, under a suspension
of the rules, the proposed constitutional
amendment fixing the 1st day of JanuarT
as the date for the assembling of con
gress. The urgent deficiency appropriation
bill will probably be pressed to the point
of passage early in the week, and if Mr.
Foran shall have sufficiently recovered,
he will ask the house to take up and pass
the pension appropriation bill, which is
in his charge.
Miners Resolve to Striko.
Pes Moines. Ia., Feb. 5. All of the
miners in eight mines south of this city
have agreed to begin a general strike to
morrow. They demand pay at the rate
of 4 cents per bushel or $1.00 per ton.
They have been paid 3 cents per bushel
or h0 cents per tun and insist o:i the in
crease, which ii very generally refused,
Tiie Pioneer mine has bscu paying the
price asked, but the miners there have
been induced to join the strike to help
force the other companies into making
the raise by making the strike general
and threatening a coal famine. If the
strike is inaugurated tomorrow it will
throw about fire hundred men out of

THE LAST KISS.
I put by the half-written ikjchi.
While the m-ii idly trailed in my hand.
Writes on, "llnd I words to complete it.
Who'd read it, or v. In"d understari-l?"
llut the little hare fe t on the stairway.
And the faint, Kiin.tl:ered lauh in the hall.
And tiie eerie-low lisp on the silence.
Cry iiji to me over it ull.
So I Rather it up where r.-os broken
The tear fudeil thread of my theme,
Tellirif, how, as one nilit I Fat writing,
A fairy lii-nke in on my dreuni
A little iniiiisitie fairy
My own little tfirl, with the jfoll
Of the sun in lifT hair nud the dewy
151 ue eyes of the. fairies of old.
'Twns the dear little j,-:rl tii.it I r.culded
"For was it a moment like lliis,"
I said, "when bhe knew 1 was Lusy,
To come romping in for a kitis?
Come rowdyintf up from her mother .
And clamorin;; theru at my Uueu
For 'one 'ittle kiss for my doily
And one 'itllo uzzer for me?' "
God p'ty the heart tlii;t repelled her
And the eold hand that turned her away!
And take from the lips th:it denied her
This nnswerles., prayer of to-day!
Take, liord, from n,y mem'ry forever
Tiiat pi: if ill nob of despair.
And the patt.-r and tri of the little bare feet
And the one piercing: cry ou the stair 1
I put by tho half-written p'Xm,
While the pen idly trailed in my hand.
Writes on, "II:'.d I words to complete if.
Who'd read it, or who'd understand?"
Eut the little baro feet on tho stairway
And I ho faint smothered !aiu;u.ia the ball
And the eerie-low lisp on thesiicuce,
Cry up to mo over it all.

DEST OF THIS WORLD.
Prentlco Sfulford's Argument on tlio Neces
sity of lUchcs The Law of Success.
Mr. Mulford opons by eonce-dimr that
it is right and necessary thiit wo should
have tho best of tho world's goods; he
concedes that wo do not get the elegan
cies of life from excessive toil and drudg
ery, and ho adds:
"That weidth is absurd, that refine
ment may be mixed with cfTcminacy, i.i
no proof against the great ur.o and neces
sity for having, using and enjoying
wisely the best the soil can raise- and tho
best of all nian'u art and f kill, or i.i other
words, the lest of ail wo can do f.ir each
other, and in the coming kingdom of
heaven, which ia to be the kitigdojn of
earth, that in what men and women will
bo joyfully doing for each other; but not
witltout system, not without order, not
without the recognition and practice of
the law that a righteous and religious
business consists in such an interchange
of commodities lietweeii man u::d man,
so that ho who gives shall feel paid by
what he receives from another. Thou
sand sa ve and scrimp, and deny them
selves of luxuries and necessities, to lay
up every spare penny, and are poor all
their lives. They call it economy to
walk a mile to save a five cent fare, and
in so doing probably expend enough force
and strength, which, rightly applied,
would make 10. AH material wealth is
gained through following a certain spirit
ual law, or by the use, in a certain way,
of human spiritual forces.
'Your prevailing order of thought is a
force which bring3 its like in physical
things. If you live in a $3 per week hall
bedroom, and j our thought every night
and morning is, 'Well, 1 suppose I must
always live in this barren den,' you are
by such despondent t;tate of mind creat
ing in the invir-ible, but most powerful
element of thought, a power which will
keep you in that ro:nn, and in a cheap,
inferior corresponding order cf life.
4 'If you say in your thought, and keep
saying it, and keep so far as j-ou can
your mind in the state to say this, '-I
accept this room only as my temporary
abode; I will have a letter one, and after
that a better one still, and everything el.-e
better, you are then, through the mys
terious agency of your -own thought
power, bringing tho Iielter to you,
"You have then set a magnet as real,
though invisible, as the loadstone at work
drawing the better to you, and you will
find, as this state of mind is persisted in,
that you will gradually drift away from
cheap and relatively unsuccessful people
into a more aspiring, broader and suc
cessful order of mind. ' ' Boston Herald.
Fashions in Rlbbosis,
Of all that fluctuate rapidly none are
more volatile than those which govern
ribbons. The greater proportion of these
fancy but necessary articles of woman's
toilet come from Europe, whence we get
our fashions. The round that a certain
kind of ribbon makes is curious to note.
It gets its prestige in Paris. In two
months it is in New York and four
months later in St. Louis. Four months
afterward it reaches Denver and the far
west. You can't get a novelty in ribbon
here by telegraph as you do news. It
must bo about six months behind Paris
or New York. This ij an axiom.
Seward, Clay and Webster.
"When Sidney Smith saw Daniel Web
ster m England he remarked: ' 'Heavens!
he is a walking cathedral." The same
thought seems to have been suggested to
William II. Seward. He was one. day
discussing the relative merits of Henry
Clay and Daniel Webster, and said : ' 'They
could no more be compared than a Gre
cian temple to a Gothic church." Seward
is said to have had a great objection to
equestrian statues, on the ground that the
horse w-as more prominent than the man.

Y,e need a public executioner.
Asking as our itatiit books declare
that death by hanging is the punishment.
fer mureler, it behooves us as a sober
minded, not to say a civilized com
munity, to see to it that this, like all
things, be done decently and in order. A
trade's a trade the world around, and as
with vessels, some go to honor and tov.ic
to dishonor, so with men; all Gorts and
conditions are needed to make a sym
metric whole. Inexplicable as it may be,
the fact remains that certain men in r.il
times have been found to whom it was a
pleasure to wield the headsman's ax, to
apply the torch to the martyr's faggots,
to draw the bow s'rriag, to turn the bat
ton, to adjust the noose, to cut the rope,
to draw the bolt; yet in this great
country, CO. 000.000 of people, with three
ccore of independent sovereignties, with
hundreds cf cities where criminals
sibound, w here murders are of daily e.-c-currence
and hangings are common, there
is absolutely no regulated custom, slid
less any law. making it the duty & any

Oil L:ims In Cars.
Now that the railroads are abolishing
the use of the dangerous stove, the next
thing for the managers to consider is tltQ
oil lamp, and the substitution of the f kx
tric light in its place. A new elynamo
has been invented that is perfectly cafe
for use on railroad cars. It is so con
structed that it may give a current in the
same direction, whether working for
ward or backward. Brushes are placed
ierpemlicularly upon tho collector, a'nd
these rae wotketl by the motion of the
train. The co.-t of an outfit for a train
is very small, and the entire arrangement
is so s-impla that any ( :ie can work: it.
The light i fre-c from pulsatii.n, and its
brightness illumines a par-far better than
either oil janrpu m- gtis, A email number
of these electric lights havp been placed
in the Pullman i-rdaco cai-s. and they
liave worked with success. It is to tie
hcTK?d that it will not be long before the
uso of oil lamps on trains will bci J
k-hed. They are just aas tlar.grous as tiie
stove in CJ.se of, aii accident, and do just
as much damage. DomoresCa Monthly.
