A1JQH DllLI TBUWKAPIL Mr tt. *. HOBTCK, *a« *!••• Mre*U« Alton, HI. SATURDAY EVK., FEB. Mat. QE». Logan, yesterday, att«r » conference with the mottUttvQt and other committee*, selected Jackson Park, Chicago, M the nil* (or the final burial plaoe of the dead hero sad staten- twn; •..'.,;.'. :.'•••• Bon. W, W. Hoaklnson, a Republican member of the Illinois Legislature (lower house), died Thursday night at Springfield. This is the second death on the Republican side of the House during the session. Mr. Hosklnson resided at Benton, Franklin county, in the Fiftv.firat district of the State. The Dependent Pension mil; ['resident Cleveland m hi* "special pluading" in defense of his veto of the dependent pension bill says: Hitherto such relief has been granted to surviving soldiers few in numoer, venerable in age, after a long lapse ol time since their military service, and as a parting benefaction tendered by a grateful people. In btberjwords, by waiting a few fears the mosk,of the old veterans, wh« offered the last "full measure of devotion" to their country m her hour ol need, the men through whoso sufferings and sacrifices, we have a united, happy, prosperous country today will be large* ly decreased in numbers by death, and a "grateful people 11 can get off cheap by paying pensions to the few survivors. To what belter use could the nnwieldly surplus in the national treasury be put than in paying pensions to dependent veterans of., the Union army, thus relieving«them and benefiting the country at large by putting idle money into circulation and relieving the Demo' oratio anxiety as to the disposal of the snrplut. Fear is evinced in some quarters that some unworthy persons may become pensioners, bat is it not bett to risk inch a chance than to allow worthy ex»soldiers to become Inmates of poor houses? The immense increase in the number of pensioners is used as a negative argument by many objectors, but this should have no force for the country h able to pay all who .have a valid claim on her. As to the number now on the rolls the National Tnbune says that about 268,000 are OB the 1 sts, out of over 2,300,000 who enlisted for three years; not a very large proportion.

' The hours passed in sooiaffHamea and amusements, flno music, vooal and Instrumental,adding a charm peculiarly its own. Refreshments of whipped oream, cakes, fruits, confectionery, were served and ail present pronounced it an enjoyable occasion. The masquerade hall If given by the Huntorstown Social Club, Tuesday evening, at Woodbine Hall, was noted on account of the general elegance and appropriateness of the costumes and the accuracy with which the various characters were personated, There were A few oouiio representations, enough to give a pleasing variety to the affair.

The la»t of the dime sociables given before the Lenten season, wns at Mrs. Henry Hart's on Tuesday evening. The affair was arranged as ft tmrprlte to Ar*.

Charade*, music and social enjoyment, of which there is never auy aekat these informal sociables, tilled he hours of the evening. The threatening appearance of the weather did not prevent n large attendance of the members of the Mendola- sohn Society on Wednesday afternoon at the home of Misa Emma Floss, on 'rospect street, Tho pleasant rooms brown together were comfortably filled with ladies, and the following inlerei>t- ng programme was rendered: Sunday doming on Geneva Lake, was the llrsi piano solo, given by Miss Althoff. The composition was one of BendelV, and most beuuiifully deaoriptivo of bulls upon tbe water. The Avu.Mitrla, of Schubert, <vaa snnt; by MM. Milnor uo> oompanled by Mrs. Rohland. The selection is one of-the most exquisite of modern compositions, with accompaniment ot running chorda, and admirably suited to Mrs. Milnor's beautiful voice, dendelsshon's song without word*, Rest* essneu, was well played by Miss Florence W hippie for the next number. This was followed by a paper upon the History of tbe Piano Forte, by Hawms, read by Mrs. Rohiand. The next piano solo, Magic Bella Reverie, Mrs. Breckinridge. This is one of Manrice Sirakosch'n descriptive melodies, and was well interpreted by the performer. Miss Float began the secoud part of the programme by the instrumental solo, Polish Dance, by Soharwmska; this weird and difflouli selection was nicely given, showing the result of study and understanding of this new and popular exponent of the Sclavonic melodies. Expec tancy, one of Dudley Buck's contralto songs, was sung by Mrs.Stella, followed by Choperio Polonaise Mtlitalre,' rendered in a most artistic manner by Miss Sophia Hopkins. Tell her I Love tier So, (Oe Fayes,) a lovely song WM beautifully given by Miss Lizzie Big- s.with aoeompanimeul by Mtas Lucy Biggins. Mi« Buckmaster afterwards read a treatise upon '• Woman as an interpreter, >v by Geo. Upton.' The very enjoyable afternoon wna closed b\ a piano solo given by MUs Lathy, A Cradle song, by Honselt; this seluotion was greatly admired by all, as Mi*> Lnthy's selections are in line taste and good style. The tempest failed to outrule "As You Like It,' 1 which was read last evening at the home ' of Mrs. E. D. Topping, by well nigh full attendance of the Unity Cirolo of Young People. Their next study will be Hamlet, and their next meeting two Weeks hence, at the home of tbe Misses Adams. t does. What dooH the Bnssnfi'its ook like? Well, Well, now, tho «iu*» snfras tree looks like— It looks like— I houUl say that it resembles— wall, It ooks morv like the black gum th&u •anything else that I know of.

Thoi-c's i heap of things that I can tell you .bout sassafras when I have time."— - Ihicago Herald* t Omnibus. Uncle Bob Hardtack was tolling tho writer his experience in crossing tho aliw coming to Califortila In '49. "Wo started out all right from old Ike with a dern splendid ox team, ind got along well enough coming up ho Plutto, but afore we got to Sweetwater we loet half of our team. Wo nid to Uirow away one thing after tho ithcr to lighten the loiul, ami when wo got toSalt Lake the dern Mormons and their Injun friends gin us tho devil. •Finally we got to almost hatin' sach other. Wo had told our littlo torios over and over again, and could not think of anything now to talk about , For days wo come along plum worn out, hardly spcakin' a civil word roin morning to night, each ready or a growl or any kind of meanness. On a trip like that, me boy. If there's my dog in a man's disposition the loir's bound to stick out" — Virginia City (Nev.) Enterprise. A Plea tor the Wvery Horse. If you hire a horso at the livery- Btable, you ought to treat him as If ho were your own. If you drive out "ten miles, you ought not to attend to your own wants' until you see him properly cared for. If an honest man, you will remember that you are under a two-fold obligation to that animal— an obligation to its owner and an obligation to Jie animal. You are the debtor of both, and though you pay the price of the horse, yet no money can release you from the duty and moral Claim involved in the bargain between yourself and the. owner. To neglect the poor speechless beast, that can not appeal in your tongue to the commiseration of a passer-by, is simply unpardonable, and the man who is guilty of such neglect is worse than a man. The arrant infidelity of Balaam and his sordid love of money, are secondary crimes compared with his brutal abuse of the ass which he rode, and the Lord wrought a miracle to secure allowed remonstrance. We have but one instance in the whole bible of a dumb animal speaking, and the niiraole was wrought to condemn the sin of cruelty to animals — New Orleans Picayune. Hiram P. Revels, the lirst colored man elected to the United States Senate, is now a well-to-do farmer in Mississippi. ..'•-'••••..• " Tho Sassafras Miin. "It's twelve years now since I began to supply the Chicago market with sassafras," said Thomas Sapp, yesterday. MV. Sapp is a tall and portly gentleman from Indiana; his hair is gray and he wears on his chin a tuft of whiskers of the same shade. "Yes, blr. I've been in this line twelve years 'and I have some customers now that I had at the first When I started out didn't have much of a trade, but I have built it up until now I got rid of about $900 worth a year. Oh, yes, it's i pretty fair busiuoBB. You BOO tho sus- Bofras that I sell and that which is noli: in the stores are two different tilings. I cut mine when the sap is in tho root. The stores got thoirs when the sap is in tho boughs making loaves. I calculate that sassafras is good for everybody. The Tail Sycamore of the Wabash is kept alive sniffing sassafras, Indiana couldn't get along without it. Sassafras and democrats are tho stand ard crops down there and they are both good. Now I come from the Terro Haute region and I know what 1 am talking about. Sassafras haa different efl'ects upon different pnoplo The best way to take it is to oat a little of it every day. Some folks wil take a whole bunch and chow it dowi at once. That's no way. Somo other* will boil it down, get the strength ou of it and drink it all at once. That'i no way, neither. Tho way to do Is U oat it a little at a time. It reluxroj tin system and opens tho pores, Jolting tin impurities pa«s out in that way.
