On a day set for the consideration of the bill the house goes into committee of the whole. A cbairmau appointed by the speaker presides. The bill is rend by sections and clauses ufter general debute has cUtsed. nrtd any member may offer .'•mendmonts. All votlnj? iu committee is hy rising. The yens and nays are not tnken. When the bill has been gone through nnd all amendments have been voted upon, the committee rises nnd the chairman reports the bill buck to the house, with the amendments. The Lnuse then votes upon tluf cither singly or in gross and by yeSis and nays If they arc ordered to be tal'.en. The bill is then ordered to be engrossed—that Is, written out in a fair band and just ns it is after being Amended—arid 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 )t roes fit. nnd not otherwise, reports the hilt back to the sen- nte. with propositions to amend. In the senate the bill is considered "as In committee of the whole." the amendments of the finance committee and other volunteer amendments are accepted 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 conference, usually consisting of three members of each branch of congress. Is appointed. The committee, when it has come to an agreement, reports to each house, and the acceptance of the report is the final stage of the bill In its passage. The measure is now "enrolled"—that Is, It is printed in large, open type npon 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 law. Congress Is notified Hint the bill has been approved, and the original copy of the act is deposited in the department of state.—Edwin Tarrlsse iii Har- Weekly. ' • Full of Reminiscence. At the different army stations in the west it Is the practice for tho officers on leaving their post for some distant station to sell off. everything they do cot care to keep. In connection with this custom in "Tleminiscences of a Sol flier's 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 jewelry she Lad lost, and among the things was a topaz chain with a beautiful "pendulum." The lady held tin auction before she left, after her husband's dentil, and when some silver plated knives were put up for sale she; rose and in a sobbing voice said: "Oh, dear, no! I can not sell them! They have been in dear John's mouth too often!" Lasting. "Your suggestion," said, n depositor to the bank rec-eJver, "offers very colt' comfort. It is a bachelor's eoml'ort- tliat is to say, no comfort at all. " 'What,' said a bachelor to :i P.enc- diet, 'only married a year and already BO blue?' "'Ah, but,' groaned the How-diet, 'I never imagined that n wife would prove so expensive.' "The bachelor pitted the blue married man on the back In a consolatory wuy. " 'Yes,' he said, 'a wife in an expensive article, that is true. I'.ut theij yon inline remember that she lasts a very long time.' " » Aristocracy. What subsists tod::y by violence continues tomorrow by acquiescent-? and is perpetuated by tradition till at last tiie' huary abuse shakes the gray hairs of antiquity at us and gives Itself out as tin- wisdom of ages. Thus tluj clearest dictate^ of reason arc madft to yield to a long succession of follies, And ttiis is UK- foundation of thf> aristocratic system at the present day, Its stronghold, with all those not Immediately intcrestIM! In it, is the rev- of antiquity.•—Kdward Everett otco ro ACRES MOOTCM Satan Terrified.
