It was stated In Congress that this great road had deliberately broken its compact with its employes; Congress (thfe lower house) has ordered • ft committee of investigation Into the matter. One of the difficulties in the way of these great interests of our country is that they so interlace and interlock that a trouble with one is to be a trouble with many. That is to nay, one industry depends so much upon another, that It ifl not easy to determine how far the effect of a trouble like that of the Reading will reach. WHITE, THE Indiana man gets in Congress after all. Although the committee on elections rejected his claims on the ground that he was a .foreigner. and therefore Ineligible, there were enough level-headed and far-seeing Democrats to vote with the Republicans to seat him when his case came up for action. Mr. White was a Union soldier who had been voting for nine years before the -war began and who has been voting the Republican ticket ever since. lie was naturalized along back In 1853; but in those days records were not kept as carefully as now, and because the court which naturalized him failed to make the entry of it, the committee on elections, the same body which two weeks before declined even to giro Carlisle's contestant a hearing, •aid he must go home. However, the committee failed to be sustained by the House, and Mr. White had justice done to him. While it is true that political parties have fora half century been doing In Congress just this kind of dirty work, it la high time vo stop it. While It is true that a contestant for fifty years has bad no sort of show- to get In unless he was of the dominant party, it is now time in view of the advanced and improved state and stage of public morals, that Congressmen should vote according to right and honesty. • COLONEL Clark B. Carr will orate at DLron one day this week,.at the farmers' Institute, on transportation. The Colonel is hardly fair with the railroads. Any one who has seen his rotund figure and is then told that the railroads charge him no more for a tirst-class ticket then one who is of average size, will agree with ua that he is scarcely grateful to the railroads when he pitches into them with such a subject ' as transportation. It might do for John Smith, or Major Connelly,both of whom being infinitely smaller than the Colonel, might reasonably complain at the injustice of having to pay the same fare as the heavy candidate from Galesburg. I* this talk ridiculous? It is scarcely more so than Clark Curr'a being aet down for u speech betore a farmer's Institute. Ileqry Demeutj is also down for a •speech at this gathering, and probably some other candidates, whose names are not down. It is all right enough—we recognize the right of auy man to run for a State office. if he is a citizen, but there is that BO Incongruous and so utterly out of place In these' politicians running around to farmers' meetings and bang- Ing on about them, like fakirs after a circus, that we cannot refrain from poking at them now and then. If their interest kept up year In and year out, it would be different; but their motive Is so patently patent, that one must express his feelings some way or other. And, besides, It occurs to us that the names of many of these officers and would be candidates are so familiar. ' There's General Rlnaker, for Instance; lie always bobs up as candidate for something; Clark Carr after being postmaster for twenty-four years wanted to succeed Logan, and failing there, at once says he must be Governor; and Henry Dement has held office continuously since he was old enough; and John C. Smith has been in office nearly ever since the war,—and, but never mind, that's the case with most of 'em. We don't care; the people have the say 10, and their candidates are the ones we want, but State ofllce holding has got to be a profession and it appears to be utterally Impossible that, ontfe hav ing got at it, a man can possibly shake It off.. These farmers' Institutes aie godsends indeed for these candidates tor State offices, and the farmers and those of us editors who chance to attend them may Imagine, from the warmth of the grasp of these candidates .and their earnset efforts to remember whether they ever saw us before and being morally certain they have and their enquiries after the health of our wives and babies and their declarations that they have heard of us as Influential fellows, and that we would do first rate for this or that appointive office, such as canal commissioner, warehouse commissioner, or something else,—.hat we are really bigger .men than we supposed, and may return to our respective honjea with .the exalted impression that perhaps some day, we, too, may be candidates' for governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of State, State treasurer, State auditor, or State attorney general. But, then, if we do get such notions, they'll all be dispelled after election; for if after that time we met one of them, he'd stare us out of countenance if be regarded us at all, aod wonder at our presumption in claim acquaintance. Mnnent. The man other than this will pointmont in the end. We HTP not now considering the reward that, count's of Industiy, which Is money; btft those impulses which come of the heart and that are designed to mould character, and particularly such actions as "are designed to benefit and bless those around us. It is significant that In all hUtory one fails to find a single instance where » public-spirited patriotic man died in the enjoyment of the gratitude and affection of his people. .Even George Washington retired from the Presidency because he was the victim of unparalleled abuse. Home's and Greece's history each abounds with instances of great men, like Socrates forced to drink poison, orCVimr butchered by his friends. Milton, greatest of statesmen, died in obscurity and want, after helping Cromwell to make Kngland greatest among nations. Napoleon, after bringing France out of chaos and loving her idolatrous!}', died an exile on St. Helena. Hut the other day, Grevy, whose life was devoted to France, was forced to abdicate on a trumped up charge. It was only a few years since that the discoverer of gold in California died in absolute penury. Men are so apt to esteem pleasant smiles ond words of approval a& testimonials of devotion; if they would but test and prove the value of such evidences, let them but ask for some favor that will entail risk of some petty sum or that will put them out the least bit, and they will learn that even at the height of popular favor, their favor means simply approval of actions, not friendship and affectionate regard. Benedict Arnold was so driven to madness by the continued persecutions of those he had oefriended that he insanely went over to the enemy. It was nothing but this that made him traitor to the cause he once had so much at heart. He made the mistake of working for public favor—he set his heart upon it,—it was his meat and drink; when it was withheld in despair and agony he deserted his country and made his name a hissing among all peoples. So Alcibiades, the handsome, elegant, accomplished Athenian, ostracised from his loved city, went over to the enemy, but returned when his people expressed sorrow, only to be persecuted again. The truth is, 1, a man who gets to the front excites the envy and jealously of those who wish also to be there; 2, all men are looking out for themselves ami liave but little time to give to others;;!, when one has done all he can for his people, another steps in and akes his place and he ia forgotten; it is the rising star and not the setting or the declined, which is worshipped. Shepard mnde Washington the most beautiful city in the world and In doing it bankrupted his purse and his health. Real estate advanced in value from ten to forty fuld; yet he was fain to leave to escape the wrath of the people, Now, after ten years absence and the amassing of u great fortune In New Mexico, they would have him back again. Necker sacrificed everything to strengthen the finances of France; yet because of the clacquer of his enemies, he was cruelly banished, a broken hearted man. • But regard for a moment the number of noble patriots ;rutblessly set aside in Spain in the past fifteen years. }Jut instanceS'are not needed; "the woods is full of 'em." So we get where we started. Duty should be the Incentive to action. Looking to no reward in success, or punishment in failure; but trusting to a conscience void of offense towards God an3 men, one should go ahead cheerfully and cheerily, doing what his bauds find to do with all bis might, loving hia race and glad to do all that he can to make them happier and better, using the gifts of voice or pen, or both, to cheer, encourage, incite it to better effort. There IET such a thing as conscience,— an inner monitor and guide, which approves or censures, and whose approval Is worth more than that of all the world; for its condemma- tion can drown out all the cheers of all the world. Besides, what boots It'r 1 after all the applause comes death, and man In his busy quest after wealth so soon forgets. It is but six years since America [mourned for Garneld; who hears his name now V Alas! if the foremost are so soon forgotten, how much more quickly are they whose llv.es are bounded by smaller lines V The quickened conscience lives ever; it gives rest at the night hour; it is comfort in hours of mourning; it is riches in poverty's day; it is life to the dying; it is immortality to the dead. And so we repeat; he who works for reward other than that God gives through and to the soul that labors, tolls but in vain Nor should that abridge his, efforts. He who slavishly labors for approval, really deserves no credit; be who works without thought of reward that bis people may be benefited, is the only true hero. Ambition cries for approval and applause, but true manhood says, use your talent to the greatest good, rejoiced if you may but start tbe faltering on his journey refreshed, glad if you may but be the means of brightening but a single borne, knowing that character is noblest, which labors unselfishly and which fears no consequences growing out of an act done m unselfishness.

In February, 1803, this fond father was visited hy u sorrowful bereavement. The executive mansion was turned into a house of mourning. Death had chosen a shining mnvk and the beloved Willie, tbe applo of his father's aye, the brightest and most promising of his children, was torn from his embrace. The dreadful stroke well nigli broke the president's heart, iind certainly an affliction more crashing'never fell to the lot of man. In the lonely grave of the little one lay buried Mr. Lincoln's fondest hopes and, strong as be was in the matter of self control, he gave way to an overmastering grief, which became at length a serious menace to himself. Never was there witnessed In an American household n scene of distress more touching than that in which the president and Mrs. Lincoln mingled their tears over the cofflu that Inclosed the lifeless form of their belovoi cliild. A. deep and settled despondency took possession of Mr. Lincoln, and when it is remembered that this calamity—for such It surely was —bef el him at a critical period of the war, Just when the resources of his mighty intellect were most in demand, it will be understood how his affliction became a matter of the gravest concern to tbe whole country, and especially to those who stood in close personal and official relations with him. Tho measures taken by bis friends to break the force of his great grief, and to restore him to something like his old time cheerfulness, wemed for a while unavailing.—Ward H. Larnon. On n Urel riii-,- nliout twice n't big as a knyi.ng, whii»h. hangs on the wall in a Twi'iiiy-ihlrd (.in'ot dentist's office, are hnnuin teeth mounted on thin Is about two Inches long. A snt in the tlentl.st's office tha othei' day, holding with both hands u tooth ih.'it lip thought wnu likely to jump out of his bend, it aclu-d so liiyl, Btnred at the rii:g anil wondered if it held trophies of tin: ilor.inr'H art, fttid If the jumping tooth would si >on IKI added to the collection. Tim dentist in the meantime was holding nn nnlmiited discussion with a fair woman patient who sat-in the big chair of torture. Pretty Boon he took tho ring of teeth from the wall, and the man with tho jumping bi-cuspid saw him go through a maneuver that ho thought exceedingly strange. Ho stood In front of his patient and, selecting n tooth from the ring, lie would hold It by tho Bide of her face, and then look nt her as though he were in pome Impossible way contemplate ing the effect. Then he would take another and go through the same operation. Finally he made an entry of some kind in n little book, told his patient to come Tuesday, and hung the ring up on the wall again. When the man with the bl-cuspid had climbed out of tlie chnlr with the fierce edge of hl« toothache dulled a little by a big wad of savory creosote, he asked the dentist what hid curiotiH operation with the castanet. of teeth might mean. "It was a very simple matter," said the arlist of tin 1 forceps mid tho nerve extractor. "1 wan trying to find n tooth that would suit lier complexion. No, you needn't laugh. It Isn't a joke. It's the latest fad In dentistry, and when you como to understand It, you will wonder somebody hasn't thought of it before. Haven't you occasionally noticed that somebody wliom you have met has a Bet of false li'i-th. and you know it perfectly well, though you can't tell whyf There IB something about Uio appearance of the teeth, you don't know what it la, that tells yon, mid in a vaguely unpleasant sort of wny, that they lire false. You see some otherwise) good looking woman laugh, for, instance, and the first glimpse you get of her teeth strikes you as disagreeable, nil hough they may be white, pearly nnd even. Did you ever guess what was the matter? '•The trouble was thnt tho woman's false teeili, though excellent In every other way, no doubt, nnd coBting a sum that probably made her husband wince, were not of-ii tint to suit her complexion. I know of ecores of women, and no doubt there are tlmii-umls and thousands of them in N'i'w York, who have unconsciously made j'^yj/'i't spectacles of them- bJhes'tliatway. ±so\v Just think how a woman with Jilnck liair aad an olive complexion would look with perfectly whlto teeth. Tlio effect Is the- ghastliest thing you ever saw, when you como to think of it. Yet, I'll bet there are 10,000 black haired women in Nuw York who are wearing false teeth as white as a sepul- chre. Then what would you think of a blonde wiTli blue eyes and light hair and yellow teeili like these? That would look nice, wouldn't it? Well, Just notice how many blonde women you see disfigured in just that way. Think of the ^spectacle n red headed woman makes when nho opens her mouth to laugh and shows the teeth some blacksmith ot a dentist made as yellow as n South Brooklyn ague vlctiml It la dreadful to all persons of .cultivated sensibilities: Dark cotnplexloned persons should linve teeth of about this shade," showing ii- yellowish tinted tooth on the ring. "Liglitcomplexloned person*should have lighter tinted teeth. Red headed persons look best with a sort of gleaming white that is not just n dead white, but is not at all yellow. "It's the same way. about the agea of people. An old man with a wrinkled ' skin and gray hair looks hideous with white teeth. It's unnatural, and I think | that even the East river oysters must ! know that such a man has false teeth, I nnd ill made false teeth at that. Th? wny we do now Is to notice tho complex- j Ion carefully, nnd then strike .a tint ( that agrees with it/ These teetli that you , • nee on the. ring are made of porcelain.

As soon as we find out the | shade that is wanted for a customer wa send the number to the factory, and the whole set is made of that tint. - c "That's n considerable advance in the dentists' art, but It is small compared with some other things that have been accomplished since the days when false teeth, plate and all, were all carved ont of nsolld piece of ivory." "When was that?" ^ "About n century ago. There is such a set, or, rather, two such sets, one for the upper and one for the lower Jaw, thnt were made for George Wnshlngton, in the possession of a New York dentist. They were carved with almost infinite labor out of solid ivory. On each side nt the back were little gold springs that kept pressing the two sets iipnrt. That prevented their slipping out, but made them terribly tiresome to tho unfortunate man who wore them, and if he ever went to sleep with them in bis mouth they pried his mouth' open aud made him snore. They were very clumsy teeth, we would think, and only to be used on state occasions."—New York Commercial Advertiser. —Mr. Chnrlpg Poets and Miss Fran- t'Imrr are to bo. married io-ni(fht at thp rpRio>nre of Mr. H.
