NILLLIONAIRES' WHIMS. I 1 They pre Often Very Costly and Some times ot Questionable Taste. There are quite a number of people a here t w-hom the remark, "A fool and J eire money soon parted," would very ,ell apply. They go in for all sorts of setravagances, and there is no limit to 1 their expenditures in order to gratify I whin}s and sometimes questionable a testes. Take, for instance, the foolish a csUtomi of giving costly favors at ger- s a and which was touched upon in a 1 rI.e~'iouu letter. The practice and the ,%penditure have got to be perfectly ab sur,. At a german given here not such great while ago there were some sixty ftlxors, and there is good reason to believe that not one of them cost less than $50. There is nothing to be gained by such foolish expenditures, but there are lux uries indulged in by a number of our ploplle that are endurable as well as beau tiful.

POSTAL TELEGRAPH. Senators Edmunds, Sherman, and Platt Advocate It-What it Would Cost to Establish the System. The struggle with the telegraph strik ers is calling attention to the advisability of establishing a postal telegraph system under the control of the Postmaster Gen eral. The question was discussed in the senate last session while the postoffice applropriatiol4 bill was being considered. Senators Edinonds, Sherman, and Platt advocated the scheme with a great deal of earnestness. They regarded it as of more importance to the public than a reduction of letter postage to two cents. 1Mr. Edmonds promised to bring in a bill next session to deal with the sub ject. His remarks are of especial inter est at this time. They did not -contain one grain of comfort to the stock jobbers in New York, whom Mr. Edmonds warned he was not in favor of buying (C.,i.i.q lin'bs but of the Government con s,....ting it. own !irres by degrees, until every post-office in the country should have telegr...

THE INNERMOST ROOM. The singer sang the world a song, And soon in every tender heart, Its melody, so sweet and strong, Became a dear and lasting part. But no one knew, and no one cared, That from supremest grief and wrong His breaking heart had learned the notes That trembled into glorious song. A woman, who from every cup Had drunk life's glad and bitter streams, Sat down and wrote a wondrous tale, As sweet and brigh- as fairy dreams. But no one knew, and no one cared, From what tumultuous seas of thought The soul in lonely voy ges Its parable of life had brought. The teacher, with a burning heart. With tongue as swilt and hot as flame, Led with a wise and tender heart The world unto its highest aim. But no one asked, and no one knew. Through what fierce conflict, day by day, He won the victory which cleared For weaker hearts the higher way. For each soul has its inner room, Where all alone it seeks the grace To struggle with its sharpest woe. Its hardest destiny to face, To lift t...
