A stone's throw from th" cathedral is the boys' tchool building, a massive structure of brick and Dorchester stone that about At present St. Paul's houses about 140 boys from all parts of the country, but its capacity is much greater. Its length is 800 feet, and the three wings of -which it is com- posed are feet deep. Dormitories, class rooms, play rooms and everything else are under one roof, the diffei ent di- visions being connected by covered win- dows. There are very few, if any, schools of the land that are better equipped. The library and art gallery are magnificently stocked, and every sleeping room in tha immense building ig unusually large, comfortable and homelike. The objects of the school are entirely preparatory, scholars being fit- ted to enter college. There is a military course, looked after by a YTest Point instructor, and all the bojs wear uni- The see house in which Bishop Little- John, the head of the Long Island dio- cese, lives with his family is about half as far from the cathedral as the school building.

It is of course not as ancient as the cathe- dral cities of Europe, but a lovelier spot can be found nowhere on earth. All the bustle, excitement and noise of the city seem to have died out there, though it is forty-five minutes' ride from New York. Ever} thing is quiet and peaceful, and the tender tones ot the great cathedral organ seem to have breathed an air of the most exquisite purity and calmness on every- thing about. The town itself, which was founded by Mr. Stewart, is like a bnge park with lovely country villas hers and there among the great trees aad smooth graveled walks winding be- tween.

Once in a session or so ib happens that a call of tho roll failing to disclose the presence of a quorum, the sergeant-at- anns is ordered to apprehend absent members and bring them before the bar of the house. The sergeant-at-arms is suppooed to know just where these de- linquents are to be found, and he and his assistants generally do know.

Just at that moment the other omcers of the mine, startled by the firing, came rush- ing up to the spot in a body to see what was the matter, and stood ia blank amaze- ment at sight of the dead monsters and the "young milksop" by whom they had been slain. "Senor Don at length said the chief of the mining staff, who had always been hardest of all upon the young uero, "you are a brave man, end I for one will never say another word against you.

When a member is called before the bar to give, reasons for his absence he is not sworn to tell the truth. It would he exceedingly awkward at times if this ex- action were made of him, for statesmen have been taken out of professional gam- bling dens and worse places by the un- relenting bit happily secret keeping officials. The nan of the mace must have discretion as well as zeal, for it would not do to take an intoxicated Statesman into the presence of the house. That would offend the dignity of the body, and be decidedly uncomfortable for the member. In such cases the officer discreetly reports ''not tu bo More than one statesman of renown owes his fair fame to the reticence and discretion of a sergeant-at-arms or his assistant. It u a matter of general con- gratulation, however, that drunkenness, gambling and worsa vices are much less frequent now among public men than they were in tho old days. There are no public gambling houses in Washing- ton, and the members who often get drunk could be counted on one's fingers. Some strange stories are told by as- sistant sergeants-at-arms concerning their experiences with junkets and fu- nerals. It is the duty of these officials to act as f ucc ral masters when a member of the house dies, and to make r.ll arrange- ments for transporting the corpse to the place of interment, accompanied by a committee of congressmen. As a rule, of late years these funeral excursions are mana'g-pd with dignity and solemnity, though it would be contrary to humaii nature if a frw small jugs and a limited number of bottles of wine and boxes of cigars were not included in the para- phernalia of woe. Many funeral scandals have come to light through publication of the items of expense, but one story has down to this time escapes! the chron- iclers of press It was told the other day by STI ex "I was raaTiaffing a funrnil trip once said this gentleman, "and thf journey was a long and tedious The com- mitV'0 inn-t'" 1 that 1 tbould lav in asnp- ply of vrhi-'-vV and W.EO. 11 t'.rl so But th-" i? ri r.'.sr'-1 is vary beasts seemed to avoid by instinct all a uatlc monsters of that age naturally rars and pitfalls and toward the center-or, ta is more likely, many successive generations 'ilk SHOOTING THROUGH THE BARS. some that the owner of the mine, a rich citizen of Lima, had ofTered a pretty high rewnrd for every jaguar (panther) killed, but to kill them was no easy matter.
