A New Iowa Rsglstration Law.
Dick JIoinics, la., Feb. 9. The regis
tration bill, which as amended passed
the senate yesterday, and has now passed
both houses, applies to every Iowa city
of 2."5iiO or more population. It requires
every voter to register once i four years,
taking the year of a presidential election
lor all other election.?, and permits t lie
Registrars to make up their list from the
list of those who voted the year before,
registering only new voters. The law as
amended, doing away with the frequency
of registration, is received with much
favor, and will apply to about thirty
cities of the first and second class.

A Rati Sweeper.
WAEAsxr, Ind., Feb. 9 Curtis McCoy,
of McCoy's Station. Ind., has invented
an appliance for sweeping from tho rail
the sand used by locomotive ia ascend
ing a grade with trains, and is about to
snr-nre its adontinn bv tlift Cinrinnslti
Wabash and M,chi.ran Railroad. The
davice is very simple, uousisung of xteel
wire brooms huag immediately in the
rear of the back drivers and operated by
a lever in a cab. It is well know to rail
road men that the crushed sand on the
rail after the engine has passed over it
increases the inaction of tlie rain, au! it is
to overcome this that the rail sweep Is
employed. Airangements have been
made for a test of the invention on the
C, W. and M. road Thursday afternoon,
and invitations have been issued to a
l&i go number of railway officials through
out the stats to be prtsent anc witness
the same. A coach will be attached to a
heavy freight traiy, the locomotive being
attached to all the cars it can make over
the hil the sweep not being used. Aftei
ward the name irahj. wuu tha addition
of several cars, will be run up the grade
to demonstrate the effect the swtep will
have in increasing the power of the loco
motive. Among those who are expected
to bs present is Grand Chief Arthur,
of the Brotherhood of Locomotive En
gineers. The result of the tes is awaited
with much interest by railway ra:p in
this vicinity. Mr. McCo wa3 fornirrly

National Capital Notes.
AsiiiXGToN, Feb. 8. liio commis
sioner of agriculture has not received the
resignation of l'rof. Dodge, and many
persons are appealing to the commission
er to retain him.
Mr. Belmont, chairman of the house
committee on foreign affairs, said today
he understood the draft of the proposed
treaty had been transmitted to the Chinese
minister containing such modifications
of existing treaties as would b:ing about
the complete exclusion of that das3 of
emigrants to which tho people of the
western coast object. He believed 'hat
within a month the country would have
a treaty which would effectually dispose
of a question. Mr. Belmont added that
no clause permitting the extradition of a
citizen of :he United Statts for any polit
ical offenses was included in the British
extradition treaty sent to the senate.
It is reported that the senate in secret
session this afternoon postponed further
consideration of the British extradition
treaty until next December.
The Queen's Speech
London, Feb. 9. The queen's speech
was read at the ministerial banquet
last evening. After congratu'ating the
country upon its pacific foreign relations,
she announces that it is the intention of
the government to introduce a b:ll de
claring squares and thoroughfares un
suitable for public gatherings; a bill of
broad scope dealing with the Irish valua
tion and English local valuation bill.
The speech expresses satisfaction at the
diminution of crime and tne improved
social condition in Ireland. Other meas
ures were announced.
The speech does not refer to the1 Euro
pean crisis. The reference to foreign re
lations is devoted chiefly to the Afghan
boundry settlement and the sugar boun

School Hours lor Children.
Oil rainy days, instead of tho usual bouv's
intermission nfc noon, considerably less than
an Lour id taken for recess, aud with this ex
ception tho children r.ro kept continuously ai
work from shortly cftcr 0 oe!.-k till 2. This
is known in school phraseoiogj as "short
session;"' tho last two hours thereof, any
teacher will bear nio out in saying, aro worse
than useless. Children and teacher alike arc
weary and irritable. They act and react
ujon one another. It is more? than doubtful
whether anything is effectually taught or
effectually learned. Surely when school
hours are so long educational work might Le
completed in them. After giving four or live
hours to mental work in school, children
should not be required to study two or tlireo
hours longer out of school. Home work often
takc3 up the hour of sunlight which remains
after school on a winter's day, and chil-lrci,
who need sunshine as much as do daisies, live
in semi-darkness till their checks are blanched
like celery stalks. In half the time now
spent in lessons children would a-jqui.-o as

Thrift in "I.iltlo I!:ilv."
Perhaps the very best tiling to bo noted
of the Italians because, for one thing, it
is susceptible of proof, and for another, it
is 6Q antagonistic to all vice is thcii
thrift. Of that there can be no question.
There are about fifty prominent padrojd
in New York, nono of them worth loss
than $10,000, and one worth nearly
$200,000. It, .hu nature cf things ihe
