CARRY A FULL LINE OF DES MOINES, Feb. 9.-The members and senators disagree widely as to the time necessary within which to complete the code. Some of them say they can do it within six weeks from the present time. A few -will say that it will take until the 1st of May. Your correspondent will predict that adjournment will be reached on or before the 1st of April. Work will begin to go pretty lively when the sun begins to shine and the frost begins to go out of tho ground. It is hard to keep oven the regular session longer than the first week in April. That good work is betng.done, all who have had experience about general assemblies must admit, There are no adjournments from Friday night until Tuesday morning to enable members to go home. Mondays always find full quorums present in each house. The third week was an especially successful and busy one. On Saturday both houses had quiet sessions, reading and passing page after page of tho code. The] number of visitors continues to be light. Occasionally delegations of high school boys and girls are here to observe the methods of making laws. Lobbyists are not numerous.

In the midst of ' the trial of a inan for high treason he became deeply interested in an argn- ment with the accused to the effect that his crime might have been committed much more easily and cheaply. M. de Freycinet is a man of fine character and ability. Before he became a politician he was a skillful engineer. "When he Was president of the judicial council a man who was accused of helping to pull down the column Vendome in 1871 was brought before The man confessed hid guilt, but .-*.

Both amendments were adopted and on that account the entire chapter was defeated. It. will have to be brought up again of course and will undoubtedly pass without amendment, leaving the law as it is now. So far as legislationlias gone there has been scarcely a change in any law worthv of mention. Members of both bodies can see that nothing has been done so far to cause even a new interpretation of any law by the supreme court. _ ^_ Lieutenant GoVe^nor Parrott will be The man comessea m» BUU»> ««.» pleaded that he was young and fanatical at tho time, and that he had been drawn into helping to pull down the column by his pride as an engineer in arranging scaffolds and ropes to accomplish the feat. "You are a criminal," said the minister severely. "You insulted the history and the glory of the country in destroying that column. But," he reflected a moment, "how did you do it? As a question of engineering I would like to know"— , ,. , "Oh,, it was very simple," replied the accused, and ho sat down at the table, drew out a plan and calculated lines, curves and angles, while the minister bent over him, following the work with interest. As it went on, however, Do Freyranet shook his head, shrugged his shoulders and smiled, and when it was finished took paper and pencil and said: "That isn't bad, but you might have done it much more easily and economically." Then in his turn covering the paper with curves, angles and calculations he proved that twice as much time and money as were necessary had been expended. , I "However," he concluded severely, | "you were guilty of high treason against the nation and must pay the penalty." ... The engineer did not escape with a light sentence, but he had much satisfaction in replying: . "Ah, monsieur, but did you not just now say that it had cost me too much already?"—Savannah News.

The very finest spinning rarely exceeds 800 banks to the pound, while in the very coarsest tjiereis about rhaS pound i» each hank.
