The Method by Which a Measure Is
Transformed Into Law
On a day set for the consideration of
the bill the house goes Into committee
of the whole A chairman ippoited
by the speaker presides The bill Is
read by sections and clauses after gen
eral debate has closed and any mem
ber may offer Hinomlmonts All voting
in committee is by rising The yeas
and nays are not taken
When the bill has been gone through
and ail amendments have been voted
upon the committee rises and the
chairman reports the bill back to the
house with the amendments The
house thou votes upon them either sin
gly or in gioss and by yeas and nays
if they are ordered to be taken
The bill is then ordered to be en
grossedthat Is written out In a fair
hand and just as it is after being
amended and to be read a third time
As it is usually already engrossed it Is
at once read the third time by title as
before and passed
The clerk takes the bill to the senate
by which body it is referred to the
finance committee In due time the
committee if It sees fit and not other
wise reports the bill back to the sen
ate with propositions to amend In
the senate the bill is considered as In
committee of the whole tho aml
ments of the finance committee and
other volunteer amendments are ac
cepted or rejected they are again
voted upon when the bill is reported
to the senate from the committee of
the whole and the bill is passed
As the two houses are not agreed
upon the bill a committee of confer
ence usually consisting of three mem
bers of each branch of congress is ap
pointed The committee when it lias
come to an agreement reports to each
house and the acceptance of the re
port is the final stage of the bill in its
The measure is now enrolled that
is it is printed in large open type
upon a parchment and is taken first to
the house where it is signed by the
speaker then to the senate where the
vice president signs it and finally to
the president and makes the bill a
Congress is notified that the bill has
been approved and the original copy
of the act is deposited in the depart

Full of Reminiscence
At the different army stations in the
west it is the practice for the officers
on leaving their post for some distant
station to sell off everything they do
not care to keep In connection with
this custom in Reminiscences of a Sol
diers Wife Mrs Ellen Biddle tells an
amusing story
There was a very estimable woman
living at the garrison a veritable Mrs
Malaprop She told us of some jew
elry she had lost and among the
things was a topaz chain with a beau
tiful pendulum
The lady held an auction before she
left after her husbands death and
when some silver plated knives were
put up for sale she rose and in a sob
bing voice said Oh dear no I can
not sell them They have been in dear
Johns mouth too often
Your suggestion said a depositor
to the bank receiver offers very cold
comfort It is a bachelors comfort
that is to say no comfort at all
What said a bachelor to a Bene
dict only married a year and already
so blue f
Ah but groaned the Benedict T
never imagined that a wife would
prove so expensive
The bachelor patted the blue mar
ried man on the back in a consolatory
Yes he said a wife is an expen
sive article that is true But then
you must reinember that she lasts a
very long time
What subsists today by violence
continues tomorrow by acquiescence
and is perpetuated by traiition till at
last liie hoary abuse shakes the gray
hairs of antiquity at us and gives itself
out as the wisdom of aces Thus tho
clearest dictates of reason are inrde
to yield to a lone sutwssio of foiie
And this is the foundation of the
aristocratic system at the pvent day
Its stronghold with ail those not im
mediately interested in i is the rev
erence of antiquity Ktl ward Everett

War Office Methods and the Test of a
Mountain Gun
The story that a gun of marvelous
possibilities invented in Eugland may
be sold abroad owing to the apathy of
the powers that be is not altogether
Whitworth refused Napoleon IIIs
offer of 30000 a year for life to go to
Paris and manufacture his cannon for
the French army but perhaps our war
office was not so ruddy then as now
Some little time ago a new gun ror
hill fighting was offered and was sent
out to India to be tried It was drag
ged up steep hills rushed down rocky
defiles left for a week at a time in
mountain torrents in fact submitted
to all the tests which a veteran officer
accustomed to war with the hill tribes
could suggest
The report was satisfactory in every
respect but a war office genius bland
ly asked if the gun had been dropped
down a precipice It had not
The war office was horrified and
amazed at the neglect of so elementary
a test The gun was now dropped down
a precipice with the Inevitable result
its internals were Irremediably dam
How was it possible the war office
asked to accept such a weapon And
the army of India was lert to potter
along witli obsolete weapons because
this new arm would not stand impos
sible tests London Sketch
The Awful Cold That Ccmes With
Eighty Degrees of Frost
It is difficult to form any conception
of the degree of cold represented by SO
degrees of frost that at times prevails
in certain parts of Russia Sir Leopold
McClintock tells us how in one of his
arctic expeditions a sailor was foolish
enough to do some outdoor work at
precisely this temperature His hands
froze and when he rushed into the
cabin and plunged one of them into a
basin of water so cold was the hand
that the water was instantly converted
into a block of ice
At 2 degrees Dr Kane says the
mustache and underlip form pendu
lous beads of dangling ice Put out
your tongue and it instantly freezes to
this icy crusting Your chin has a
trick of freezing to your upper jaw by
the happy aid of your beard My eyes
have often been so glued as to show
that even a wink was unsafe
During a theatrical performance giv
en by the crew of his ship at an inside
temperature of 30 degrees the con
densation was so excessive that we
could barely see the performers Their
hands steamed When an excited Thes
pian took off his coat it smoked like a
dish of potatoes Any extra vehemence
of delivery was accompanied by vol
umes of smoke Pearsons Weekly
A Wrong Diagnosis
The small boy with the big bundle
of papers was observed to be moisten
ing some of his stock in the street
Ah my lad said a benevolent old
gentleman it does me good to see
such an illustration of cleanliness
What do yer mean boss asked
the boy as he stared up in wonder
Why arent you trying to wash
the mud spots off the edge of your
No boss you are way off You
see some of dese papers is two weeks
old an if I dampen em up a bit peo
ple will think they are just from do
press an never think of lookin at de

some day when I am a captain of in

The Order of St Patrick
The most illustrious Order of St
Patrick dates only from 17SU says a
Loudon writer when it was founded
by George III and is not to be com
pared in age with the most ancient
and most noble Order of the Thistle
which dating from a remote antiquity
was revived by James II in 1GS7 The
curious thing about the bands or rib
bons of these two orders is that St
Patricks is blue of the hue that may
be seen in the hackles or plumes in
the bearskins of the Irish guards
though it suggests the blue bells of
Scotland while the sash of the thistle
Is a dark green suggestive of Erins
verdant isle On state ceremonies
these two orders are frequently con
