Mr. Robert a native of St. Petersburg. Russia, a commercial traveler of this city, in- forms the press that "la grippe" is a well known disease in Russia, originat- ing among the lower classes because of a lack of cleanliness. It is infectious to a great degree and partakes- of the na- ture of nasal catarrh. A simple remedy for it. which cures at once, if taken dur- ing the ilrst stages, is as follows: jTalf a glass of boiling milk mi-ed with the same quantity of genuine imported Ger- man seltzer. Mr. Ebell says this reme- dy is used with such success in Russia that the government officially promul- gated it. Adjutant General Keltoii plaius Its AVorkiugs. Ex- Statement the Plan Be- cently Introduced iu the United States Army. Violent Opposition to the New Order of Tilings on the Tart of Post Whose are Thereby. WASHINGTON, Jan. recent in- troduction of the "canteen" system into the array, and the announcement that the post traders, whose calling is there- by endangered and in some instances superseded, aro about to make common cause boforo Congivss., has called public attention to a subject that is fraught with the highest importance to the army. So little is. known, however, to the uninitiated and so little meaning is conveyed by the term to the non-military mind, that the following statement, from Adjutant General Kel- ton. concerning tho system will be of in- terest. General Kelton says: The canteen system of the Uritish army is now re- garded as among the most important fasten a of its administration. On its present basis, it is in effect the co- operative store of the regiment. There is a wet canteon and a dry canteen. The former is practically the club room, aud is fitted up with a library and reading room, a room for games and others for refreshments: for all of which privileges the soldier pays a monthly subscription of two ponce. The bill of fare is of large variety and the charges exceedingly low. The dry canteen is the same as the post trader's store in our service, but where all articles of general merchan- dise are sold at rates slightly exceeding the cost. These are managed by a coni- nutfeo of officets and non-commissioned officers, under tho supervision of tho commandant. There is a treasurer, an accountant and a steward. Every thing is sold for cash and the money is lodged" in bank, tho amount of profits averag- ing some S'3.000 a year to each regiment. Of tho profits, every penny goes for the benefit of the soldier, in supplying tra dinners, papers and games for the club room, for the regimental sports and dishes for tho messes. In short, the canteen is among the most important features of garrison life in Europe. In tho French and German, armies the system is not so thorough as in England, but in all the co-operative features it is permanent, and all are un- der military supervision. Practically, this is the canteen system which is now being introduced: into our army, and which may ultimately super- sede the post trader system; not because the latter is a special mark for disap- proval, but because the canteen is for the greater benefit of the soldier, and because the two systems are irreconcil- able. CONGRESSIONAL WORK. Among the During the Coining Week. Jan. It will take Congress almost the whole of the com- iig week to get down to business again. The Senate will take up the current of affairs more quietly and naturally than ;he House. There may be a resumption of the Brazilian discussion. A quantity of executive business will doubtless bo disposed of and a day will be fixed probably in the near for a dis- sussion of tho question between Senators Hutler and Ingalls. An effort will be made at an early day to put through both houses the bill establish- ing a form of government in Oklahoma. On the FIouso side of the Capitol tho Ways and Means Committee will con- tinue its bearings on the tariff and tho bulk of interest will attach to them. Very little will be done during the week except to organize the committees appointed just prior to the recess ad- journment. and possibly to begin discussion of the report of the Com- mittee on Rules. Sonic fear is expressed on the Democratic side that an effort will be made to dispose of the contested election cases on a partisan basis before the rules are adopted. The Committee on Rules is not ready to make a report and may not be ready tbj.s week. The debate on the rules will probably bo protracted. _ ______ STKIKE SETTLED. the Markey Railroad System L aud frame Will be v Died from Hydrophobia.

Already there aro upon my books applications from upwards of 300 players located in all parts of the United States who aro anxious to enlist under the League banner, and many of them will undoubtedly prove decided acquisi- tions to our ranks."
