Washington fates. the agreement reached last monday the Senate will ate 5 Steelwork wednesday. Vote on the subs my shipping Bill and under the same agreement All of tuesday and wednesday with the exception of the time devoted to routine business will he Given up to the dissuasion of that measure. It is not expected that there will he any More prepared speeches delivered of the Bill but there will be considerable debate on its principal features Aud also upon amendments that will be offered. The joint statehood Bill will be made the unfinished business of the Senate in thursday following immediately upon the disposal of the shipping Bill Aud will continue to hold that place until voted upon or displaced. Opinions differ As to the time that will be required for the consideration of the measure. Confessedly the Senate is quite evenly divided on the Foraker amendment giving Arizona an Opportunity for a separate vote on the question of admission and it is not probable that a test of strength will be consented to until thebe is More deft nits information As to the attitude of certain senators than can now be obtained. Senator Beveridge who will have charge of the Bill on the floor expressed Confidence in its Success practically As reported from committee. It is understood that senator Dick will open for the Bill and that senator ii Ever id go will close in that interest. A it no Oset Sten reached. No decision bae vet been reached As to what will follow the statehood Bill As unfinished business. The decision on that Point will rest with the Republican steering committee and it will not be reached by that committee until the Railroad rate Bill is reported to the Senate. The decision will lie Between the rate Bill and the philippine Tariff Hill. The Day for a vote on the Railroad Bill in committee has been fixed for next Friday and the Hill will be reported soon afterwards in the shape agreed upon. If the committee succeeds in getting a measure fairly satisfactory to the Senate leaders it will be Given the place of preference immediately after the vote on statehood. No time has been fixed for reporting the philippine Bill. The week s proceedings will be opened by an Effort on the part of senator Tillman to secure an investigation of Railroad conditions in West Virginia As a result of a complaint made by governor Dawson of that state. It is probable that the question of the propriety of caucus dictation in dealing with treaties which was raised by senator Patterson s Resolution will be revived some time during the week by senator Spooner who will sustain or Patterson a course. Many of the conservative senators on both sides of the chamber Are trying to prevent a revival of the subject the Senate will adjourn Over sat urday to permit senators to attend the lungwort Roosevelt wedding Quot Ood Liberal shipments Are now in and More coming nearly everyday.

Not Folk va., feb. 12 United states marshal Morgan treat and commissioner Percy s. Stephenson have re turned on the Revenue Cutter Windom from an expedition among the Oyster dredging fleets in Chesapeake Bay while Over fifty vessels were boarded and conditions indicated that captains in a number of instances were holding men in a state bordering upon slavery Only Cue arrest was made w.

Use fair blend Coffee yours for business302 South Broadway Albert Lea Minn yours to serve the figures on the dial. He told the maker that he had made a grievous error As the figures to denote the Bour of 4 should be four is. Toor Vick ventured to Tell the King that he was wrong. Quot i am never wrong thundered the irate Monarch. A take the clock away and Correct the mistake at once upon pain of my die pleasure a Vick had to do As he was told with the result that All our timepieces have the fourth hour labelled ii instead of Ivas should be the Case if the Correct numeration were followed How Many in Ople have the slightest notion Why sixty seconds make ii minute and Why the hour is divided into sixty minutes and so on Why Are i there not Teu hours to the Day and ten to the night tile reason is very simple. It is lie cause the Jie Ople of Babylon reckoned not Only by a Decimal system of Nota Bon but also by a Sevag Tsimal sys Rem. That is to say they not Only reckoned by fens but also by sixties the babylonians were very Clever peo pie and they saw that the Decimal sys tem was by no Means the Best. They knew that no number had so Many divisors As has sixty. How about the division of the Day into hours the babylonians begun by comparing the Progress made by the Sun of its daily journey to the distance covered by a Good Walker this being done at the time of Hie Equinox. The astronomers divided the Sun s journey into Twenty for Sarsangi whence our hours. The babylonian system was adopted by the greeks. It is one of the most remarkable feet of history the the system has survived through every charge made since the Days of Babylonia. When the the French revolutionized nil weights Ami measures going so far As to alter the Days of the week still they left the old system of notation so far As regarded the reckoning of the flight of time. Even our own Lover of tile Decimal notation do not suggest that the old Sevag Tsimal method of reckoning time should be altered a Pearson s weekly Mitchel l in new Days Ami Hodes a achievement. Judge Tea Irlar of Miosis i up wee in East late Bachelor and Ratler prided himself upon having resisted the charms of Lovely woman when on All a ides his friends had Fullen victims to the insidious arrows of Fate. He was a solemn looking Man hut with plenty of dry humor in his nature. He had a pleasant Home Over which his relatives sometimes presided. Upon one orca Aion a lady called of some charitable errand and. The servants being out for the moment the judge answered the Bell. The caller who was a stranger asked for the in a grave and deliberate voice the judge replied a there is no the stranger instantly detected a sorrow and spoke with sympathy in look and voice a alas. I see Pardon May a this was too much for the Bachelor Pride of the judge who Felt that a could not be worsted of bus years of victorious Solitude so with triumphant remo Berance he shouted with Joy and animation a no Madam not a bereavement an achievement thank heaven an achievement a origin of our system of the division of time. It wee devised by the do by Ion la in who were a Verr Clever people was adopted by the greek wad Mas survived through All change. If you pull your watch out of your pocket you will have in your baud one of the nost wonderful piece of machinery Ever constructed. Think How it works throughout the Day and night and How it keeps it up year in year out think How the second hand Points to 8,6 10 divisions of time during every Bour. It never sleeps. If it is like the average watch it will he built up of no fewer than 175 different pieces. These pieces will hav passed through More than 2,400 separate operations each being a distinct form of manufacture. The fourth jewel wheel screw is so very email that it is almost invisible to the naked Eye it appears to be but a a Peck of dust. When examined under g magnifying Glass it will be soon to be a perfect screw having 200 threads to the Inch each thread being Well aet. Actually the diameter of this grew is so Little As the four one thou Wendth part of a Inch and it would take no less a number than 100,000 similar screws in order to till an Ordinary thimble As used by the ladies. Each a Crew has a double head and bes the be hardened. After the hardening process the screws Are arranged in Fra Mea being placed in with the Heads upward. This delicate operation is done by the sense of touch alone in Stead by sight and great rapidity Marks the skillful operator. Somewhere about a Hundred screws Are placed in each Frame and the frames Are attached to a machine which pol la jul Tho Heads of the screws 10,000 at a time. It will be seen How marvelous these screws arc. Yet one of them forms but one tiny piece of a watch. Still this will show the remarkable nature of thai everyday article. When special watches go considered Vebere is indeed room for wonder. For instance take the watch which was presented to it Atherine i. On her Coronation As Empress of Russia. This watch was one of the most remarkably constructed instruments Ever made. On the opposite Side of the works of this extraordinary timekeeper there was an exact representation of the holy sepulchre with a carved image of the roman guard stationed outside it. As soon As the watch Case was opened the imitation rocks would Roll away from the month of the sepulchre the Soldier would Knell Angels would appear it opposite sides of the opening and Sweet strains of music would be heard. This remarkable watch took nine years uninterrupted labor in or Der to construct. The first clock in any Way resent bling those in use at present was made by Henry Vick in the year 1370. And i was made for Charles v of France Fri Monarch was surname the Wise but big education was imperfect in Many Raap Ecta and he knew it Well.
