HOUSE CHANGES PROGRAM FOR THE DAY Cn ( DIMTII IMKIiiu of ( lie Home Ilnolc Cniinoti Tlilnkn the Country linn Gone Kx i . Wild , WASHINGTON , Jan. 14. It was the In tention of the house to proceed with the diplomatic and consular appropriation bill toJay , but owing to the cxiltod condition of affairs In Havana and. the wildly exag gerated reports afloat they decided to avoid the possibility of opening up a Cuban dc- bate by relliiulahlng the day to 'tho commit ted on clalma In charge of 'bllla ' on the pri vate calendar. Hoforo this order was en tered upon the agricultural iblll was patted. Most of the day was consumed In a filibuster against a. bill to pay the publishing house of the Mothodlst Episcopal church , south , at Nashville , Teun. , $288,000 on account of seiz ure and uo of the property of the corpor ation during the war. This took up the tlmo until D o'clock , when the house ad- Journod. When the house adjourned last night the amendment to the agricultural appropria tion bill providing for the publication ot another edition of the "Horso Hook" wa pending. Today the friends of the amcndmcn compromised with the appropriations com mlttco by agreeing to a reduction of the number to 1)o printed from 150.000 to 75,000 As amended the bill was passed. The resolution accepting the Invitation o the government of Norway to participate In the International Fisheries exposition a Bergen from May to September , 1898 , was culled up by Mr. SlmpUIns ( rep. , Mass. .Mr. Cannon , chairman of the appropriations committee , said ho thought on the exposition question congress was running wild. Wo had had domestic expositions at Phlla dclphla , Chicago , Nov. Orleans , Cincinnati Louisville , Atlanta and Nashville , and were now about to have ono at Omaha. Abroai we had participated In the expositions a Vienna Paris , I3erlln and Brussels. The anxiety of wculd-'bo commissioners to have the honor nnd glory of our country rep resented at these foreign expositions was agonising. Now here came this exposition at Bergen. Twenty thousand dollars to be appropriated now. If this resolution passed congress would be called upon to foot the bill for a deficiency of $20.000. Ho gave 1 as hla deliberate judgaient that the Interests o the United States did not require our participation In this exposition. If we dli our duty by the Paris exposition that would bo enough. Mr. Stnipklns ( rep. . Mass. ) In reply callci attention to the fact that Norway , while second In the world to no country In fish eries , hail accepted our Invitation to partici pate at Philadelphia and Chicago. Common courtesy and decency demanded that we accept this Invitation. Mr. Uolllvcr of Iowa thought wo vvoulc not In the next decade participate In an ex position which would be of moro practical value to the United States. The resolution was adopted. Another resolution was adopted on motion of Mr. Perkins ( rep. , la ) directing the director of the geological survey to prepare nnd have printed 10,000 ccples of a map of Alaska showing the most feasible routes to the gold fields. The house then went Into committee of the whole/ for the consideration of Tiills on the private calendar. The property of the corporation , which was located at Nashville , Teun , , was seized ant held by the United States from 1SC2 to 1800 when It was turned ever to the owners Mr. Cooper referred to the fact that the profits of the concern were applied to th6 support of the superannuated ministers Thousands ot petitions from icllgloua Undies ho said , had been iccclvcd , urging the passage - sago of the bill. Mr. Dalzell ( rep , Pa. ) inaugurated a fili buster against the measure by demanding the reading of the report on the 'bill , which consisted of about fifty pagw , the reading of which would consume several hours. At the conclusion of an hour , when Mr. Dal- zell'a tlmo expired , the friends of the bill attempted to secure an agreement for closIng - Ing the debate , but all requests looking to this end were objected to. Mr. Rlchard ° on ( dem. , Tenn ) appealed to the other sldo to allow a vote on the bill. JMr. Sayera ( dem. , Tex. ) said 'this ' was as jt t a claim as had ever been piesented to congress. The amount asked by the Methodist Hplscopal church , south , in thta bill , he paid , was not BO per cent of the amount which could be recommended In the court ot claims. Leading bishops nnd divines north and south had endorsed It. Com mon justice , not charity , demanded Its pas sage. sage.Mr. Mr. Croavenor ( rep , O. ) made a ton-min ute speech In support of the 'bill. He said ho knew personally enough about the claim to say that $338,000 was a very low estimate of the damage sustained by the corpora tion , After further discussion and before dis posing of ithe bill the house nt 5 o'clock ad journed.

Wlllard of New York re cently read A paper bcforo the Woman's Lonsuo , of 'which she Is nn officer , on thu subject ot "Woman's Greatest Troubles" After enumerating thorn lu order , and In telligently Heating the subjects of "Unro- qulttcd Affection , " "Lack of Appieolation , " "Loss of Friends , " Poverty , " etc. , she con tinued : "But , unfortunately , tho. greatest trouble which over comes Into nuy woman's life U loss of health. Other troubles can , bo over come. Tlmo mellows the grief which la BO overwhelming at the hour1 we cloie the OVPO of our dyliiE relatives or friends.

Rvcn unrcciultted affection may bo lived down , but broken health blights Iho life , mulct mines the spirit , dostrojs beauty , embitters the nature.tulns the llfo nnd , too often , makes death n boon. A sickly wonun Is the saddest wicck upon the shoals of life. She Is not only miser able herself but often brings greater mlsetv to those about her the loving friends vvhuio lives are bound up In hers.

Fortunately there Is a relict for w onion oven In their lowest pl alcal condition. Modern science nnd modern discovery have worked for jcnra on this problem which if. , lu fact , the greatest problem of uro , namely , how to produce happiness , irad It Is a cause for gratitude that those efforts have been successful. There arc many things which have been dlscovcicd which may help women in their phjslcal troubles , nnd thcro Is one dlscovciy which certainly cures. I have known many women who have been la the depths of ph > slral blttcrneis , and who aie now on the heights of happiness. I have (3ocn ( them taken from a condition of sick ness and misery , and know that they are to day liealthy and happy. I also know that the means by which they were icstored I'Cij been cndoised by the highest authorities , medloil and scientific , both abrcail nnd In America.

Tbo ramo of this dlscovciy which has done an much for womanhood , h Warner's Sato Cuic , and It can bo seemed by nuy woman who feels the need of some- reliable friend upon whom she can dcocnd , " "In conclusion , Mrs Wlllard sold : "Woman Is able to endure suffering far moro than man but there la no reason why f.lic should be compelled to do so. She may be able to endure i.wln , but she was not cie atod for that purpose. Her mission In llfo It to diffuse Joy and gladnes.3. Her face be comes n revelation of heaven vviien wreathed In happiness , but gives us a glln-pso of all that Is miserable when depressed by dejec tion. But , far too oftcci , bco troubles arlso from her own making. Thoughtlessness , oarelcBsnc s and neglect nro too often re sponsible for the misery which she endures , but fortunately , by exercising care and avail ing herself of the best discoveries of science , there Is no icasca why nhe should remain In n condition of unhapplncss when thcio Is certain icllcf near at hand.
