THE EYEING GAZETTE: THURSDAY, JAOTAKY 1888. Evening Gazette. TKBMH J VP,-rU..lf» cts.| Per Year.... BT CARRIER. THURSDAY. JAN. 5, IMS. CONGRESS is in session, its members fresh from the people and prepared to couflider the momentous questions of the day. Twenty years have worked a great change in the habits, character and conduct of members of this great representative body. Our first acquain- tanee with it as a looker on, but prive- leged to get close enough to observe, were a body of men many of whom were a roystering set, given over to visiting certain places where the "tiger" showed its velvety paw, and places where the wine-cup was often emptled.and where fair but frail women gave levees. But la that day morals were so much improved over past years, that it was boast that never was Washington so moral before. In those days not many were accompanied with their wives and men known at home as staid, sober fellows, let folly and sin run riot with their lives. Some whose names were household all over the. land were known among their associates to be weak if not wicked. It is not so now. A majority of members bring their families with them, and with few exceptions, are as well behaved and as orderly and as correct as a convention ~~ot clergymen. Prohibitory views have not made much- progress there as yet> the Influence of foreign ministers resident these maintaining the demand for wines and stronger drinks at dinner, while the old southern fashion of stop ping into a saloon to "smile" now and then is by no means gone Into disuse. But there is little or more of the roystering, gaming, spreeing and general rowdyism that stamped too many of the members of former years. The House is confusion confounded and 'it takes a good pair of ears to hear and understand the proceedings. Speeches are short, because of the many who desire to exercise that faculty. But good solid work is done, and it demands shrewd leadership at least to manage the affairs of. this great country. The Senate is marvellously quiet, the members mostly dignilled and speaking to him a far more desirable position thr>n that of Governor. As Vice President he would preside over the most august body of lawmakers in the world; as Governor he would have but little to do except to appoint men to offices for the purpose of clacquing for him afterwards, and to say whether this or that murderer shall be hanged. Lincoln could carry Illinois for Vice President over Oglesby or any other man who could be named and he would make the strongest man on the Republican ticket for that place of any other man within the State. SHERMAN'S SPEECH in the Senate will help his Presidential chances greatly. Even Mr. lilaino'a admirers will admit that his position is more tenable and easier defended than that of the brilliant Presidential candidate from Maine. IT is doubtful if any class of men are invited to so many confidences as editors. This is due primarily to the fact that they are constantly studying what to say and what not to say, and while necessarily given to much speaking they early learn what to say and what not to say and that the least said the better. Besides, it is known that most gossip reaches their ears and both sides usually desire to be fairly heard. To the credit of editors be it said, that it is exceptional'for one of them to betray informationlimparted to him. THE TEMPER OF SINGERS. •' A Manager Saji Mnilclan*. Are Hard to Get Along With—Cajo In Point. "I nefvcr kucw a boss singer who wasn't good natural, obliging and wlllinr? to bo corrected and reproved. Next to tho bass singer com;s the alto. She Is a little more independent than the bass, a little more touchy and indifferent, but still little fault can be found with her. But the tenor aud soprano ure often terrors, tho soprano seeming to be the worse of the two. I guess it la natural, though, lor a female scold to be a little sharper :han a male. ~"Professional tenors are almost invariably conceited, willful and stubborn. They want to have their own way, and sulk or fly into n passion if they can't have It. This dUTerunce in the deportment of singers is due, I suppose, to the nature of their parts. The base and alto are naturally subordinate to the tenor and soprano. It is the tenor and soprano who get the encores. They are petted and courted and in some cases almost delfled. Naturally get conceited in respect to their ability. Any correction or warning on the part of the director is almost THE STONE CUTTER. We hammer, hnmmur, hnmmrr, on And on.

''A case In point to Illustrate tho is that wlll- named is for its members the moat intelligent and able body of legislators up <m the face of the earth. Congress is a place for change. In the Senate the only men present now wtio were there in 1807 are John Sherman in old Farweli'hali, jusTbVfore"'the* great and George F. Edmunds.

Carter Hnrrlson, tho distinguished ex- mayor of Chicago, Is traveling In the east and writing letters to one of his home papers. He has been studying Japanese farming, and tclla what he knows about It. lie says everything there is carried on on a very small scale, and with such wonderful nlcenesa that it Li difficult to realize that farming is the business of a life and a very earnest and hard one at that. There are no barus or outhouses in which to store crops. There are no farm houses. Tfce people live in Tillages or In towns. Some of the farms are not even one acre in size, and very few contain more than ten acres. The notable feature of these Japanese farms is the irrigating ditch. A farm of two or. three acres usually has half a dozen levels, and the water that Irrigates one field runs down to irrigate another. The farms have the appearance of American market gardens. The soil is dry and thoroughly prepared. The plow Is used only for throwing up the beds, and all the digging is doue with spadelike hoes and forks. No weeds whatever nre allowed to grow In tho little fields, and every foot of ground is utilized. The Japanese farmer takes every advantage of the season nnd practices trn« economy. Ono crop succeeds another with unvarying regularity, and the bcne- fits of rotation are thoroughly understood and realized. While one crop IB ripening another one is planted between the rows, and this practice is carried on even In the tea plantations. When the tea plants are small turnips and other crops are planted between the rows as soon as the July plucking Is completed. Tho management of the Japanese farmers la so thoroughly scientific that lands which have been in cultivation for centuries continue to" produce marvelously large crops. It is said that Buddhism has discouraged the growth of animals within tho limits of the empire, and, as a result, there are not 2,000,000 of horned cattle In the country, though the grasses on the hills would feed millions. The acorns and nuts In the forests would feed millions of hogs, but there are no hogs in Japan. "There are no starvelings In Japan," Mr. Harrison declares. "The children are as fat and jolly as little curly tailed pigs; the young lads and girls give no evidence of not having enough to eat They are all rounded in form and lithe in action, and the men and boys are capable of enduring active labor and fatigue as few others can do. They are possibly not as muscular as our meat eating men, but not a day passes that I do not see some man whose muscular development is a source of admiration, and others whose powers of en. durance are simply marvelous.

Chronic, diseases and diseases of woman my specialty, tf. merit of some kind, death and man's , I pleaded and argued with her, assuring r^V^i?* v er way wus not customary and that the chorus could not possibly follow her. No, she was master of that particular part, and she would sing it as she chose or not at all. Finding her obdurate I told her that I should not ask the chorus to take a faster time, and that If she persisted in carrying out her whim I should , break the time to suit her and change back after her part was finished. She didn't care what I did. Tho solo parts were all she was specially Interested in and I could manage the rest to suit myself. So break the tlma we did, mnklne an awkward hitch and all but spoiling tho piece. On the same evening, a little further on, she essayed to strike high C where it wasn't written at all, and came to a dead standsttll-utterly broke down. I always thought It was a Just retribution for her willfulness. "Another case when the prlma donna came out second best occurred when I was conducting Hoffman's 'Lay of the Melusine' in Louisville in IBVJ. Mme. Pappenheim was the prlma donna. The composition was entirely new, both to her and to the chorus. At the last rehearsal I was very anxious to have the whole thing carried through with full voice, Just as at the «-' production, A large paid audience ingratiflide ' are most actively busy in slayiug the members. Americans love changes. Unlike monarchies, where men once lifted up In this way If they possess merit are honored so long as they live, our people set a mun up as a ten pin, to be knocked down again. Be the congressman nbver ro busy, he has enemies at homp "setting for him," and eager to supplant him in popular favor. If his pride prevents him from jroing out among the people and working hard for a 'reelection, he passes out after a few brief years. "Whether it take up seriously the tariff or any other question; Congress will have plenty to do,—routine business will keep it busy. A close observer is Impressed with the adroitness and non-1 to, urging as an excu^~t"hrweari7e^pro- communicatlveness of Congressional duced by such rehearsals.

The newspaper clacque over th back salary grab of 1873 caused a near ly general disgorging, where the mem bers had'ut spent the money.' They ari exceedingly timid in offering opinions or taking advance steps, for the simpli reason that a single misstep or a slngli wrong opinion will 'send them where twlneththe woodbine. Why a Con gressmen can seem to agree with al you say and yet when you have lef him and analyse his utterances, you are surprised to observe he has said noth ing and promised nothing. He avoids all unpleasant topics and seeks by care fully studied words to make his hearer feel that he considers him of first importance, his views as valuable and his advice aa super-excellent, but he says nothing, promises nothing, If he can help It. It Is a fairly average Congress and wtl^probably try to do something before It adjourns. VBUY RECENTLY an effort; has been made to put Bob Lincoln forward as candidate for Governor. Why is it that it has not occurred to many to name him for Vice President? The east will name tne Presidential candidate and It will be needful to put a man on with him who will carry strength. Mr. Oglesby's name is being preasad by his official placemen, but he is not known outside of big State and bU unfortunate blunders in the labor riotoat East St Louis and Chicago laat year have injured htm irreparably STOI in hia own State. Lincoln is a man known throughout the country and would unquestionably be an inS- mfcsly stronger nwu than Mr. Oglesby.

But no; she screened her real motive, which was mere capriciousness and insisted on having her way. All the others sang with full voice till it came to her, but she would noc move. I purposely uttered a few words of remonstrance so that the audience could hear me ond passed on. The next solo part was by Mr. Remmertz, who earnest strong and full and did his best. The audience was very demonstrative ond warmly encored him. This was too much for the prima donna. Jealousy overcame her contrariness, and, coming meekly for™?^?™™ " ' I™ 1 * A «P«-t b mertz hod his.

When Mr. Sumter Introduced the Immortal resolution that nothing commemorative of civil strife be Introduced into the national buildings and monuments, although the times were not ripe for the great man's thought, he worked his will in the end by tho force of public opinion. Nothing of this kind would be tolerated In tho Capitol now, even, as the case la, where It would be a real boon to the artists II they could go on and put a few battles and sieges in the frieze of the rotunda It was determined to make this frieze an epitome of American history, as far aa fK U I d .». be i;, but H waa not anticipated .hat the history would give out before the frieze got round. But such is the case. The artists started off famously, used op all about Columbus, the early history of the colonies, the revolution, the scrimmage of. 1812, and then began on the Mexican war. But the space was large and eking out the, history as they could, here wasn't enough to go round. At last he point was reached where the civil war began, and there was a great stretch of wall before the other end of the friere =ould be "jined." They had used up all the history they could use, and they .ouldn't moke any more—«nd a united -ountry would not permit a family quarrel to be perpetuated—«o there stands the workmen's scaffold, way up against the -eillng of the rotunda, suggesting the leasing fiction that the work la at.111 going °-. J he "'kts and the architect con- luded It would look better to let, theacaf- old §tay, so that people wouldn't poke •un at them for the awkward predicament to which the paudty of national history 'uu left them, than to take it down aud unto folks by the tight of an nnnaiahea n**» upon which work hadbaeo stopped. «-Wa»Mngtau V»c, Boston Truacrtffi! The "Extended" Book Man. After considering a few of the biblio- maniacs who are to be found In tho city, it is worth while to dwell upon another hobby which has the most followers and which la far the most interesting of alL The "Grangerlte" is the pet name by which the "extended 1 'book man is known. He is looked upon as a vampire by the religious old book collector, who loves books for their text. lie is a vandal, o destroyer of books, a dangerous man to the libraries. He leaves his linger marks on some of the most valuable works at the Mercantile and Public School libraries; he is a terror to private libraries; he Is at every sale, and after buying a book he wants guts it of its contents to tear out perhaps one page that he wants. He is insatiable and peculiar, to say the least, in hla methods. It is easy to see why extending a book is fascinating, for it is simple and illimitable. It is a growing craze, and there ore numbers of grangerites in St. Louis. • To extend a book means illustrating or embellishing without the aid of some artist, by placing between the pages of a book pictures of objects therein described, portraits of the author and personages mentioned in the text, and illustrations of subjects referred to. This may sound simple enough at first reading, but in reality the task gives a collector a lifework and may cost a fortune. There are wor,ks originally of 100 pages which have thus been extended to 4,000 pages. Sir William Hazlett's book, "The Spirit of the Ago," which consists of sketches of authors of his time—Scott, Southey, Coloridge and others—has been Illustrated by portraits of these men, of characters In their works, their birthplace, and in fact a complete pictorial life of each.—Globe- Democrat. A Prophecy of EvIL Germany is now discussing the authenticity of a prophecy attributed to a friar In a Bavarian convent, who lived in the Seventeenth century, as it completely foreshadowed the strange complication of evils with which Germany Is now threatened. The effect of. the prophecy is alleged to be that'a Hohenzollern prince would unite all the German states under one crown; that he would live to be 98- that he would be predeceased by his son, and that the successor to the throne would have the use of but one hand. According to his prophecy the emperor would have still five years to live, and the doctors say it is possible tho crown prince may live for four. As to the rest, Prince William has had a shrivelled arm from hla birth. It is said that documentary proof of Oils remarkable vaticination can ^ produced, but it is not stated that any one has seen it.—New York Tribune. From Empire. Splendid sleighing. Frank Fanning, of St. Joseph, Mo. t has been visiting his brother, O. E. Fanning, the past week. Wm. ]J. Curolus made some New Year calls on some of his friends here last Monday. Miss Ora Boss is at"home"from Bison, where she has been attending school. Bhe is quite sick with neuralgia of the heart. The creamery man of Gait and all the farmers that are in the habit of putting up ice are busy at It this week, filling their Ice-houses. Tim ice is very clear and nice and about 12 inches thick. J. G. Book has erected a mill on the east bank of Spring Creek, for the purpose of grinding feed for his stock, and will grind for all who will patronize him. He will bu able to do good work, as he is putting in regular burrs for grinding and will run It by power. Give him : a trial. The Empire people will give a literary entertainment and an oyster supper in the school house Friday even ing, Jan. 13, proceeds for the' benefit of the Sunday school. All are invited to come and enjoy a good time. Cou. —Yesterday afternoon ws stood at the 1st avenue crossing for some lime, purposely to study the situation, and we do not hesitate to give It as our strong, earnest and hearty opinion that the day of miracles is upon ns. When we consider that hill, the incline of which begins at Third street, the narrowness of the avenue, the bridge to the south, the immense number of vehicles going each way, the switch engine constantly at work, the many trains passing and parting at the crossing, we said to onrself, "Not a sparrow fallcth to the ground without His notice" and just as the hairs of our head are numbered, so a special providenc watches over the people here at Ster ling and prevents a -dozen ouers every day. •Weather Report. The following are the observations taken by the class of '88, Second Ward School: Weather report for December, 1887. Claaa of '88 Observers. The mean temperature for the month from tri-dally observations was 23.6 degrees. Highest temperature, 61 degrees on the 4tb; the lowest, 16 degrees on the 29th; ranges 67 degrees. The total precipitation was 3.23 inches, falling on 6 days, the 2nd, 3rd. 10th, 27th and 30th. The total snowfall was 12.5 Inches, of which 4 inches remained on the ground at the end of the month. Frost on the 5th, Oth, 7th 8th and 14th and sleet on the evenings of the 1st and eth. The weather has been cold throughout, but there was a copious rainfall on the 31st, and a summing up of the weather gives us 20 cloudy, o_falr and 6 clear days. On the;i9th there was a solar halo and on the clear and cold morning of the 22nd 3 sun-dogs appeared, extending over a large portion of the sky, two being north and one south of the sun. The prevailing winds were westerly and southeast In direction and force light. • See the new ad of N. Carpenter & Co. tf A. R. HENDRICKS HAVING A Collection of Pens.

' The shop girls and East Side belles havo taken up a fashionable fad with alarming results. They ore all painting their eyes without knowing how, and with the result that every one sees the blacking as far as the girls themselves are discernible. The apparatus for this la on sole in every drug store, and is simply a pencil of black. cosmetic exactly liko what menus* on. their beards and mustaches. It is blacking on a bnsis of grease. The fashionable* women nse it to touch the lashes of the eyes in order to frame their optics In a way that will make them conspicuous. borne who think their eyes too small pencil the lids with a little shading of black to make the eyes seem larger. Tula IB an old trick of the stage. But the girls who are fooling with the pencils lay on the grease as they would on a -pair of ctove lids.— New York Sun.
