"There is one question depending

"At the outbreak of the war and
until Mr. Stevenson was master in
chancery of Wood ford county, Illi
nois, from 1801 to 168, he was the
state's attorney 'or the Twenty-third
judicial district. There has also
been a raking of his political record,
jrta there 'has been an impression
that he was not an out andoutdem-
tocrat in the years immediately suc
ceeding the war and that he had at
time greenback affiliations.
"Mr. Stevenson's first appearance
in national politics was in 1871, when
he made a successful contest for
the position of congressman from
theold thirteenth district of Illinois.
At that time he ran as a candidate
of the 'independent reform party.'
President Hayes appointed him in
1879 a member of the board of vis
itors to West I'oint. He again made
the race for congress and by a com
bination between the national green
back and democratic parties he was
elected to the forty-sixth congress
by a majority of 1.K0O votes over the
republican candidate. Mr. Steven

comes from his having been Cleve

Army of the Republic circles here
to-day that Mr. Stevenson during
the war was a copperhead and a
shining light in the order of the
Knights of the Golden Circle, and
also that his sympathies were con
stantly with the south. It is also
stated by clerks in the postoflice de
partment who served there while
Stevenson was President Cleve

postmasters, that it was he who ap

Limestone Caves iu Burmah.
The question has been raised whether
the numerous limestone caves in British
Burmah have been explored for archae
ological remains. The Rev. F. Mason
pointed out the probability of an exam
ination of the stalagmite floors of these
caves yielding important archaeological
discoveries in 1872. Many of the caves
were known : to have been used by the
Buddhists of former generations, as
Buddhist idols were found in them, and
it is probable they were inhabited by
men in the early time. Philadelphia
The Pleasures of Being a Barber.
Barbering has been a very genteel art,
and it might be fine yet. The fee is so
small there is no excuse for doing a
credit business, and there is no bore of
bookkeeping. The chink drops in fast,
and "Next I" is a merry cry.
And what a luxury it is to have a man
fumble your face and head. The bar
ber's nimble, strong fingers rouses your
somnolent wits. It is delicious to be
kneaded, combed, brushed, bathed, cur
ried, spruced up. National Barber.
