Never Anything I.Ike It.
London, May 2!t. Sir Edwin Ar-
tiold, who vcnt to Moscow uu bclialf
of tlio Dally Telegraph, In his dis
patch to Mint paper, describing the
Ecetiu at the Kremlin and the entry of
the czar into Moscow, says: "Why
cannot one write in colors? There
was never anything' seen on any stugo
like the living kaleidoscope of fanci
ful uttlro of fantastic hues and em-
bollishmonts vislblo around me, par
ticularly In the Oriental element, and
all the fur Eastern nations. The olll
clals from Khiva wore magenta col
ored velvet robes, gold embroidered
and sugar-loaf hats. Now China
contributed a dazzling group with
flowered satin frocks and Vermillion
buttoned hats. Now a bevy of
magnates from Lake Baikal astound
tho eye with fur trimmed brocade and
long red boots. Now I recognlzo the
gray surlout and umber capstrlngs of
theCoreans nnd trvone of them with
a greeting in Japanese. Ho politely
murmurs, borne ot tlio Khtrglz Tur
tars then appear in yellow silk and
acarlet bhuwls, outdoing all, and at a
window of the GoUlnnoy Dvor there
is a beautiful visi in of a Circassian
lady in black and orange brocades,
tfllsteulng with pearls and turquoises.
I abandon in despair the polyehro
matte aspects of the pageant.
"The Cossack guard was glorious,
uniformed in scarlet and cold, riding
little, weedy, Homan nosed Ukraine
nags, with only a smiiUe and bridlo
and with gold and black bandoliers,
looking quite tit to pace in front of the
czar. Alter these came tipon the
scene almost the chief interest for me
personally, since I saw gravely rid
ing along us the vassal friends
-of the great whito khan all the
chiefs of the Central Asian king
doms and provinces, over which
his eagles cast tlio shadow of their
wings. They passed demurely upon
noble Arab btallions, the very least
Among them mounted upon animals
covered from crest to haunch with the
costliest trappings of silver and' gold
cloth. Hut these and other parts of
the pageant paled before the grand
master of ceremonies, borne haughtily
ouward in such a golden chariot as I
thought existed only in heaven or in
classical pictures, holding a wand of
gold topped with an emerald as big as
"Hut here at last comes the nugust
object of this unparalleled manifesta
tion, the successor and heir of Ivan
the Terrible. His hundsome and
manly young countenance is palo
with the prodigious sensation which
such a scene must naturally excite,
and holds his gloved right hand
almost perpetually to his regimental
cap. lie bends his head gently to
this side and that to acknowledge the
boundless welcome. Every man is
bareheaded and every woman is wav
ing a handkerchief or shawl or vio
lently crossing her loyal bosom in a
prayer for 'tlio little father.'
"The czarina also sat alone, drcs&eii
wholly In white, even the jewels,
pearls nnd diamonds, seeming to mar
by their color the effect of this pure
apparel, which caused her to resemble
a marble saint within a golden shrine.
Most unmistakable were the aifection
and loyalty of the crowd and I saw
more than one poor peasant woman's
eyes fill with tears ot sheer joy to be
hold this fair lady. One honest follow
fell upon his knees to say his prayers
as though he had seen something di
vine, till n Cossack bundled him back
into the crowd."
It would be impossible- to overdraw
the splendid picture presented by the
procession nnd by tlio illuminations.
No money has been spared to make
tlio coronation festivities memorable
in Uiissiiin history and up to the pres
ent all efforts have been crowned
with success. The Russian govern
ment is said to have spent ovei S20,
OOO.onO on the fcis up to the present
and the city of Moscow Is understood
to have expended nearly as much
money and more expenses havo to be
The Illuminations will last three
evenings in succession and will cost
several million dollars, to the govern
ment alone, without counting what
the city will contribute toward this
portion of the expenses.
Beside the expenses of the Ru&sinti
government and the city of Moscow
the expenses which grand dukes and
grand duchesses, foreign princes and
anil) ass:i dors, etc., have been put to, is
really enormous, one authority going
so far as to estimate that there wus
about S OO.OoO.UOO worth of jewelry

Washington, May 23. -The chap
lain's prayer hardly closed to-day
when Mr. Butler renewed his motion
to take up his bond bill. After some
sparring Mr. Hill interposed the ob
jection that this was too important
a question to be considered "without
a quorum." This was tlio first evi
dence of a renewal of obstruction, but,
a quorum being found very quickly,
tho motion was adopted yeas, 31;
Mr. Mills of Texas gave notico that
he would object to any businsss until
the pending bond bill should be dis
posed of, and after Mr. Pettigrew
presented a partial conference report
on the Indian bill, which was ad
mitted and agreed to, Mr. Hill began
bis speech In opposition.

Lincoln, Neb., May 91. Governor
Culberson of Texas replied to tho tele

Governor Holcomb. The message of
the Texas governor wus as follows:

C. A. Cui.uKttsoN,
In accordance with the foregoing
Gov. Holcomb has issued the fol

ing the suffering which must havo been

which recently devastated property
and destroyed life at Sherman, Texas,

ablo and benevolently disposed con
tributing such articles as would bo most
likely to relieve the distressed condi

of tlio Nebraska club, will receive and
reccpt .or any contributions for this
worthy cause nnd will see that they aro
placed in the hands of the proper local
authorities at Sherman. Tex. I trust
that at least one ear load of provisions
may be forwarded to these distressed
people within a few days."
HOT UNDER THE COLLAR.
Hill nnd Allen Kxchango l.cft ITnnded
Washington, May 2 3. The Senato
had an hour of much excitement with
a resort to obstructive tactics and
several heated pcrsoual controversies
at a late hour yesterday. The early
portion of tho session had been given
to the. routine of ugreoing on confer
ence reports on appropriation bills.
At 6 o'clock Mr, Butler, Populist, of
Nortli Carolina moved to take up his
bill prohibiting tho further issue of
interest-bearing bonds. Mr. Hill im
mediately moved un adjournment, se
curing an ayo and nay votu in order
to gain time. The motion to ndjourn
was defeated, whereupon Mr. Chandler
followed with a motion for an execu
tive session. Mr. Pettigrow asked leavo
to offer a supplementary conference
report on the Indian bill. The con
sent being given, Mr. Hill Immediately
demanded tho full reading of the re
port. This was an unexpected move
for delay, as the report was volumin
ous. The presiding oftlcer, Mr. Faulk
ner of West Virginia, ruled that Mr.
Hill's demand was legulai , and direct
ed the clerk to proceed with tho
reading of the report. Senators
Butler, Stewart and Allen interposed
n ehorttb of protests. Mr. Allen said
lie hoped the senate would not violate
every decency and propriety by theso
"What right havo you to the floor?"
asked Mr, Hill, sharply, addressing
Mr. Allen personally. Then, address
ing the chair, Mr. Hill added, "He has
no right to the floor."
"I liave, too." declared Mr. Allen.
"I have the rteht. to speak and I pro-
pose to uo so.
"Others have rights as well as you,"
reponded Mr. II ill. The tone of the
Senator showed feeling.
Mr. Allen proceeded and said that
the obstruction was mauifestlj aimed
ut a 1'opuli.stic measure.
"I am glad it is admitted to be a
I'opulistio measure," interjected Mr.
At this point a heated colloquy oc
curred between Mr. Hill nnd Mr.
Allen. The latter had continued to
hold tho floor. He spoke with much
feeling, 3aylng he had never known
the spirit of unanimous agreement of
the Senate to be violated, und the
Senator who committed such a viola
tion would regret It.
"1 would like to know If the Senator
refers to me?" said Mr. Hill, rising
There wns a momentary silence,
owing to the suggestive tone of Air.
"What' does the Senator want to
know for?" asked Mr. Allen, with
"1 want to lenowif reference is raado
to me," renllcd Mr. Hill.
"1 referred to tho Senator," said
' Mr Allen.
I "Then I desire to bay here," an-
sweri-d Mr. Hill, savagely, "that tho
statement is false, absolutely false. I
have violated no agreement, and my
course was sustained by the chair."
"The Senator will never bo ablo to
convince me," said Mr. Alleu, in home
what subdued tones, "that he was
honest In having that report read."
"I care nothing about convincing
you; I stand on my rights here," said
Mr. Hill, contemptuously.
Tho vote was about to be taken
when a snarl of parliamentary ob
struction was interposed. For an
hour roll calls and calls of tho Senate
obstructed business, a quorum disap
pearing on most votes.
Mr. Stewart moved that the sor-geant-at-arms
bo directed to request
the presence of senators. The motion
prevailed and the business of the Sen
ato was suspended while the sergeant-al-arms
looked up absent senators.
At t:35, no quorum having ap
peared. Mr. Butler moved to adjourn,
saying he would continue the contest
to-day. Senate then ndiotirned.

II. M. M. is deeply in love with a

and thinks that his lndy-falr should

has n slightly chnngeablo disposition,
ns she hns been engaged ouco beforo
nnd broke that ongagomont. Her
friends, however, npproved of tho
course Blio took. She promised her
present intended that she would never
break tho pledges alio mndo to him.
But nlns for tho Inconstancy of wom
an ! sho writes him thnt sho has lenrned
to lovo nnother, nnd has asked that
tho affair with H. M. M. bo broken ott.
Ho Is deeply grlovod, nnd whllo ho hns
consontcd to tho severing ot tho rela
tions between them, ho Insists on re
serving tho right to visit tho young
woman and try to win her nffectious
back to himself. Ho has made ar
rangements for a farm, and now fears
ho will not bo ablo to find a wifo in
time to take chargo of it according to
his plans. Ho wants to know what
courso Is host. Whether to try to win
tho girl again and go to farming or to
give iip the farm and take up a pro
fession. Answer: Long years ot trial
and heart weariness have demonstrated
that lovo Is one of thoso eccentric ar
ticles that Is always doing just what
Is no: expected of It. One thing is cer
tain, that it is almost useless to try to
win back lost love. It Is dono In books
very often, but In real llfo rarely. Tho
most sensible course Is to make up your
mind that love that is not freely given
will never freely abide. Better find
out before marriage that the younglady
is flcklo than to wake up to it after
ward. Ab to taking up the farm, It ap
pears as though, having a good start,
it would be folly to give it up. Why
not stick to it and make a success of
it? Then you may have tho satisfac
tion of showing this changeable young
woman how much better she might
have done had sho remained faithful
to her promises mado to you.

a wedding favor; nnd had thoy not
feared to hurt the toolings of some tact

would not have taken tho box into the

sho undid the last bow tho cover
jumped oft with a report loud enough
to attract the attention of tho whole

sprang a rosy-cheeked Cupid, stretch

About Mourning Dress.
L. B. asks It it Is proper to wear
surah, gloria or black lace when dress
ing in mourning? Aro small sleeves
fashionable again? Answer: Acord
ing to strict rules, none ot these ma
terials are mourning goods, but there
Is so much variety in individual opin
ion that rigid lines cannot bo drawn.
French mourning includes lace and
many things that our ideas would not
approve. If you want to be dressed in
a genulno mourning costume, wear only
crapo and soft, black all wool goods,
without figure or much luster. Small
sleeves are not fashionable.
Spring millinery is attracting tho at
