During the recent null of visitor to
Washington the guards had lively ex-
-perlouces with the amateur photog
raphers. Kvery day-do.ens of tourists
were bnrred out because they had
their cameras with them. The guards
admit that the Senators have no ob
jection to having their pictures taken,
but they say there Is danger of some
dungerous missile, being concealed ,ln
the cameras, so they cannot take the
risk of permitting them In the galler
ies. As the guards refuse to be re

thu fears of the senators result In cut

recent exciting and prolonged session
of tho Senate several young women
who did not wish to miss any of the

At (i memorable gathering, attend

curse of heaven was Invoked by the
archbishop of Canterbury on those
who in future should in any respect
violate the two charters (tho Mugna
Chartn and the Charta de Forest a).
Hands were lifted in air and brows
bared, and "tho tapera were then ex
tinguished and thrown, stinking and
smoking, on the ground and the dire
malediction uttered that the souls of
every one who infringed the charters
'might thus be extinguished nnd stink

pressive In Its rude fervor, the epi
sode was made additionally striking
by the action of the King, who closed
tho ceremony by declaring these
words: "So may Cod help me. I will

and a crowned and anointed king."
George Washington's Religion.
A 'New York Tribune correspondent
writing from Washington arrays all
tho historical evidence at hand nnd
concludes that tho first president was
not a communicant of any religious
body. A leading quotation, that from
Hobert Dale Owen, seems to convey
tho spirit of tho whole communica
tion: "When I spoke of Washington's
donthbed, 1 had the account of un
eyewitness lying before) mo. And moat
strongly does that corroborate my
opinion 'that Washington's religion
was of thu most liberal stump. No
plorgymun around his deathbed. No
protestations that In tho dying hour
religion afforded him aid. No praying.
No repeating of texts. No asking for
a Bible to read a chapter. Tho Father
of His Country died the death of a
patriot; ho died as ho bad lived, In
dignity n.id peace; but he left behind
him not one word to warrant the be

Electric Light Not Harmful.
A Russian specialist has decided
that, coutrary to tho general opinion,
electric light plays less havoc with
tho eyes than othor forms of artificial
light. He bases bis deductions on the
fact that dlseaso and damage to tho
eyo are proportioned to the froquoncy
of the closure of tho lids. He found
that tho lids close In a minute ti.8
times with caude light. 2.3 times with
gus light, 2.2 tlni'M with sun light and
1.8 times with electric light.
