GENERAL WASHINGTON AND
Would that all Americans had
the love of country and of the home
institutions that possessed the
spirit of Washington. His adop
ted son, George Washington Parke
Curtis, in a letter to Thomas Car
bery, dated April 1, 1839, relates an
incident which well illustrates the
Americanism of the Father of his
country. Says Curtis: "In 1799,
when in command of his last army,
in which I had the honor to bear a
commission, a blue coat with em
broidery was the arrangement
made by a board of general officers
as the costume of the chief. Wash
ington merely asked, 'can this af
fairs be done in the. United States?'
On being told 'no,' that the em
broidery must be executed in
Europe, the venerable chief de
clined the whole affair instanter."
THE EXILED EUGENIE.
Upon her first visit to Paris
Eugenie's beauty was ravishing.
She was likened to a snowflake on
a July day; like the fairy-like mist
that liangB over Niagara; like all
that is purest, freshest, loveliest in
nature was the impression that 6he
produced upon people. Once at a
great ball she was clad entirely in
white, of the fleeciest, gauziest mist
iest description, and with a very
simple parrure of emeralds and
diamonds glistening in her blonde
hair, looping up her transparent
sleeves, and shining on her lovely
neck, she was as completely a
vision of delight as eve eested on.
The remainder of the story is
known, add her marriage, her reck
less extravagance, the war, her
downfall and escapes, are tales of
history told again and again. She
encouraged frivolity and spent
money more recklessl-, perhaps,
than any other woman ever did.
She was corc;eded to hz the bett
dressed woman in the world. Her
wardrobe costs $1,030,000, and her
jewels were of fabulous value. She
spent $10,000 a day for household
expenses. It was the age of gold.
She undoubtedly was the cause of
her own downfall, but she did
many kindly deeds. She was one
of the first to recognize the merits
of Rosa Uonheur, and it was by her
wish that the talened artist was
decorated. Her legacy of woe is
unmatched by any woman in
historj'. She is all alone. Her
jewels have been scattered to the
corners of the earth; her crown is
torn asunder, and the precious
stones are now used to decorate
women ehe never saw. Her steps
are dogged by spies when she
steals like a house breaker into be
loved Paris. Her beauty and
strength have faded. She has long
waited for the end. Ada Chester
Bond in the March Ladies Home
PROGRESS OF AMERICAN TIN
PLATE. It must grieve the democrats to
hear that American tin plate is
still in the race. At the recent
meeting of the Canned Gods asso
ciation the secretary of the Tinned
Plate Manufacturers' association,
Mr. Clarence K. liritton, delivered
an interesting address upon the
progress made during the past
year. The canning industry uses
more tin plate than all other indue
tries combined, and the address was
therefore pertinent. It is only l'i
months since active work was com
menced on the development of this
new industry. What has been ac
complished in that time? .Let the
secretary of the association tell it
in his own words:
There are now in successful opera
tion twelve different tin plate works,
varying in size from the one 7 by 9
feet which Governor Campbell's
lieutenant claimed he found at
Apollo, to those at Demler and St.
Louis, covering from four to six
acres. There are fourteen others in
course of erection, some nearly com
pleted, and all of which will be in
full operation by the fall of 1892.
These twenty-five works will con
tain 55 mills, with a apacity cf
about 35,000 boxes a week, or be
tween (30,000 and 70,000 tons per
year, which is about one-sixth of
the present consumption. These
twenty-live works, when completed,
will represent an investment of be
tween three and four millions of
dollars. If this be done in one
year's time, what may be expected
in three or five?
This is doing pretty well for one
year. Who can deny it? The
world's fair is not being built in a
day. Neither can a great industry
like this be built up in a day, or in
a year. Hut who is not proud of the
progress that is being made?
Think of the number of men who
find employment in these factories
carpenters and masons in build
ing them, and the expert workmen
in making tin. How much better
this is than giving employment to
men in Wales! And all this has
been accomplished in the face of as
bitter a opposition and in the face
of the threats continually made that
the law would be repealed. It is
nothing short of marvelous, this
what has been done. Five years
from now democrats and republi
cans will alike be proud of the
great industry that is now develop
ing in this country. Iowa Register.
IF a democratic house, with a
majority of two-thirds, can run two
months at an expanse of over $700.
000, without doing anything, or
even getting ae far the adoption of
rules, how much can it expend and
how little can it accomplish in the
course of two years?
No healthy person need fear any
dangerous consequences from an
attack of la grippe if properly
treated. It is much the same as a
severe cold and requires precisely
the same treatment. Remain quiet
ly at home and take Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy as directed for a se
vere cold and a prompt and com
plete recovery is sure to follow.
This remedy also counteracts any
tendency of la grippe to result in
pneumonia. Among the many
thousands wko have used it during
the epidemics of the past two years
we have yet to learn of a single
case that lias not recovered or that
has resulted in pneumonia. 25 and

M. Floquet, President of the French
Chamber of Deputies, recently did a
sensible thing. A comic song being
given in a burlesque at one of the the
aters contained a reference to his re
cent confession that he used the en

speeches. The lines containing this
reference, says the London Telegraph,
were carefully cut out by the censors.
But when M. "Floquet heard of it he in
sisted on their being reinstated.

him 2 francs. A countess, who re
ceived him as if he were "somebody,"
gave him 10 francs, directing him to

made a sum equal to 20 francs. At

francs the concierge claimed a com
