V*:;-..'(.'njftOll LcllBf.] Any visitor tn the i-upitol occupying 1 a seat in on,- of the galleries would suppose that minght but baniiony prevailed on the floor of the senate so far as tho p.-rM>nal relations of the dlg- nified statesmen are concerned. Even Home of the oldest habitues of tho galleries and forriilors an; inclined to absorb the belief that, while the house of representatives may be a bear par- den, the atmosphere of the senate is fairly reeking 1 with harmony. This i.s one of the popular fallacies, prevalent hero, us well us throughout the country, concerning re.iiI life in the nutioir.il oupitol. Tn many men who have never seen tbe city nor touched elbows with the .statesmen tin- real Washington is as much of a myth nnd legend of the imagination as was Homeric Troy for centuries. The reul national capitol, so far as the human nature in it i.s coin'tir/ied, js not unlike tin) town in which you live and tho neighborhood with wliicii \ou are .surrounded. There is u great deal less of personal prejudice., envy, jealousy and malice iu the hotiM- of representatives than in the 1,'nit.ed Stntes Semite, inninly because it is a bigger body Mid the members are not so long in continuous service, except in rare iiistunces where sensible constituent-IPs reeled again nnd again Uivir superior men. The senatorial term lasts six years, and during that time every senator is struggling to have him.se] f reelectetl for another term of six years. In tho profession of the clays and weeks of even a single senatorial term an ambitions man has plenty of time to make enemies for himself and tie the grass in front of his own feet in the political pathway of life. There are eighty-eight members of the senate and at least, ten or twelve of them have bitter, personal enemies, so that they do not speak to each other. During the lust eight'ycurs of the term in the senate of Wade Hampton, oi .South Carolina, he and John Sherman, of Ohio, never spoke to each other. The trouble between iheBO men occurred -while Sherman was secretary of the treasury, and a candidate for the presidency. Senator Hampton wrote some very caustic letters to Senator Sherman and, gave them to the press associations, ami when Sherman returned to the senate he carried his resentment with him. Consequently those gentlemen, each of them popular on his own political side of the chamber, were not on speaking ten»s. Senator Chandler, of New Hampshire, nnd Senator Blackburn, of Kentucky, have not .spoken to each other for several year.s. During a .session of the senate committee on JncHaii nffalra Senator Chandler made some remarks reflecting upon the honor of the Kentucky statesman, and u personal encounter ensued. It, was stated by some people present that Jtlaek- biirn pulled Chandler's oar and slapped his cheek; but Chandler has always denied thin, but stated that lilackburn uttered threats and offered personal violence; and the honorable gentlemen look upon each other with disdain. They never speak as they pass by. During thn lost few years of his public career Senator Iiigalln, of Kansas, by reason of his aggressive political per- sohality, managed to make a great ^ many enemies for himself. He carao into "the senate one day with a carefully-prepared speech, and attacked tho fitory p-oes a\nnf; the entire of individual prejudices AoA pique,, fl-omtliu beginning to the •hd •.t it Kpmitnriiil ciiri-'-r. It would not do to present to the people this pessimistic' picture concerning the individualities of the members Of the greatest deliberative body on earth without presenting another'.side of the picture, which is worthy of commendation. Sume of Un. warmest friendships ever made iimon<r men are formed on the Hour of the. senate by tin; member.'! of that lyjily. Jtsc'Moin ocelli's that the two senators from ;inv one state entertain :tn exceptional tie- j pree of personal admiration Cw wiiiVi | ot.ln:r; Init they meet and pair with t,he ' .stn>!if;esl, unil mo.st lilcable individualities of the solons from the sisterhood of states oulside of tho boundaries of their own commonwealths. One of the exceptions to this rule, iuul it is a not- ftble ex<!t?ption, i.s the u'lirtn j>er.sonal friendship existing between the senior senator from Colorado, .Mr. Teller, and the junior senator from the same state, Mr. U'olootl. Mr. Teller is now nearly sixty-four years of URO, and has been in public life a quarter of a century,-filling many positions with honor and distinction. He is regarded us one of the ablest men on either side of the seoate. IIi.s colleague, Senator 'VVol- cott, is in his forty-sixth year, a Inrjro. powerful man, physically, an active, cultured intellcctualist. and an impressive and magnetic orator, lift looks Highest of an i* Lravenlof tower.—-Latest U.

A few years ago the venerable Senator Sawyer, of Wisconsin, and his young colleague. Senator Spooner, of the same state, maintained similar relations of warm personal friendship; but, in the whirligig of time, and in the cyclonic political disturbances of recent years, they have been both retired from the senate. Senator Davis, of Minnesota, and Senator Pettigrew, of South Dakota, are, intimate friends. Senator Petti- ftrttw has a woolen mill at Skmx Vails, and during his recent campaign for reelection to the senate Senator Davis wore a suit of clothes itiftde from cloth manufactured at I'ettigrew's mill. He made, many speeches in Minnesota on the subject of encouraging home manufactures and always exhibited bis suit made from American wool in a South Dakota wonien mill. These speeches were quoted in the South Dakota papers, where they did | Pettigrew a great deal of pood; while j ^ ^J^u^u^'has been "shaped,' at the same time that suit of clothes KQ oo n sbm)f c i o th is fastened o u helped Senator Davis make some very • good republican speeches. of Ohio, a leading Ordered, tin MndirlnnK Arc, lij I'rcurrlptlon -N.»ne Notulilc Notm. H is only in the last ten or fifteen ( years that the oculists hnTe entirely j succeeded the opticians in the work ol ; "measuring" the human eyi* for eye- j glasses. Twenty-five year.s ago un oc- | ulist'b prescription for a pair of (flosses was almost unknown in New York, the selection of glasses being made almost entirely by the opticians. Now all first-class opticians bear the same relation to the oeulists that druggists I do to physicians; thoy fill proscriptions | only. This has been brought, about, | more than by anything else, by tli« in- j vontion, or perfection, of the oplithal- j moscone by Ilelmholy. It« \ised has j "s|K:cialized" the eye, as the scientist 1 .* j ! say. to Mich a degree that a man whose j ) tiisiness it, is to make glasses cannot | I possibly do that and also keep up with i I the procession of those who are burn- j I iiig the midnight oil in a study of basal | | optic ganglion, optic chmsm, commis- j sure 11/ the optic nerve, Ntylurnmnto- pliora 11 nd thalameiv'ephalori. i The optician slicks to his lens, and J that gives him plenty to do. lie must j know all about the incident and emer- ! gent, parts of a ray of light as they are all'octed by pieces of glass, and not by the eye. He must, be ii tine mechanic, capable of making by prescription glasses in which are observed -all that the oculist prescribes as to double-convex, double-concave, plano-convex, planoconcave, concave-convex, and all those sort of things, lie knows that the oculist, in examining the patient's eyos, has HS-.'I! an apparatus by which he may have detected a variation of 1-l-K of an ineh from aa o.\»ct circle, where an exact circle should have appeared in the construction of the >>yes, and equally exact apparatus for the detection of oilier variations, and prescribed in a manner to remedy those variations. So the optician must be equally exact iu his work. Tho tilling of' hcse prescriptions is the work of artisnns, who correspond to the <;h«misLs in the drug stores. They follow the oculist's fig- lam 4fn themists observe the portion of called for, and with equal accuracy.

Senator Voorheen, of Indiana, in such a. manner that Voorhees never forgave him, and they were never more on Speaking terms. There is a great deal of petty jealousy on the floor of the senate of which the general public knows nothing. The speeches, casual remarks, actions, method of utterance and gesticulation of individual senators are always criti- c-ised by some of those who surround them; even members of their own party frequently making unkind remarks concerning them. These great men, and they arc all really superior men, sometimes remind me of the members of a volunteer choir In a modern Christian church. Each soprano firmly believes that every other Soprano is inferior Of faulty; while every basso is tlrmly impressed with the belief that his own voice is the only resonant, smooth and cultured one in the city. In the senate, each Individual constitutional lawyer knows, beyond the peradvcnture of a doubt, that all other constitutional lawyers in the body are pretenders, who arc claiming for themselves greater reputation for erudition than their actual acquirements would warrant, Each individual orator with>n hiu heart, if not upon his lips, criticizes the utter weaknesses of all other *"i>t.i>rHlers to oratorical bestow, W§ Senator Brice, democrat, and Senator Jon en. of Nevada, a leading republican, are great personal friends and charming- Btory tellers. They are also great practical jokers and sometimes ploy schoolboy pranks on each other. Senator McMillan, of Michigan, and Senator Harris, of Tennessee, although political foes, are warm personal friends. They are members of the committee on the District of Columbia, and ore very much interested in till legislation which affects the national capital. Senator McMillan was chairman of the committee when the republican parly WD« in power, anil Senator Harris is now chairman. The political changes in Ihe senate have not affect' ed their personal relations in the least degree. Senators Jones and l!erry,.of Arkansas, are very intimate friends. Senator I Jones is a tall, powerful, athletic man, who walks with the tread and stride of a giant. Senator Herry would be a very strong man physically but for the fact that he lost a leg during tho civil war and is therefore obliged to go on crutches.' Senulor Jones seems lo take a great deal of pleasure in saving- his colleague as many steps as possible, 'and Ihcy work harmoniously in everything. Senators Voorhees and Tnrpie, of Indiana, are bolh great mon and xvarm friends. Senator Voorhees is a statesman of experience and ability, whose fame as an orator is well earned and well deserved. Senator Turpie is one of the greatest lawyers Iu Ihe senate. They are very dignified men »nd their friendship is not demonstrative but it IB nevertheless sincere.

So the work proceeds until the nisbcd pair of "specs" or nose pinchers is turned ove.r to tho patient, a-curate in every measurement, and adapted to remedy tho imperfection discovered by the oculist.
