During the debate senator Carpenter told a Story what he had seen one Day during the War when he went to Tho War department to see Secretary Stanton. A Little boy came in and gaily said Good morning. Why Johnny replied Tho where did you come these men you gave me a letter to have answered Johnny and now 1 want to to up to the printing Stanton turned around and wrote a letter to the Public Printer telling him who the boy was and asking that he employ him. After the boy went out Secretary Stanton told me that he had paid one Hundred and fifty thousand col jars to spies and scouts for information Bat that the Little boy who had been three times in Richmond during the War had brought him More valuable and reliable information than he had got for the whole one Hun dred and fifty thousand dollars. Now Eaid Carpenter suppose this boy had been disabled while one his trips to Richmond would Congress have to refuse him a pension because he was under age not an elected Soldier Carpenter thought if the present Law did not cover such a Case that was All the More reason for passing a Bill which would Reward him. Claimed that scouts were not a foot bag with sold Iris they contracted to perform certain duties Aud were no More anti Ted to pension than any other contractor. Senator Ingalls endorsed that View but in Stead Basing his argument that principle he based it the actual financial possibilities. If we continued the present pension pol icy it would soon bankrupt the Treasury to pensions. We so great Britain in spite All her great wars Only pays France and Germany in spite their terrible wars less than each. The government cannot be charged with ingratitude.

It had found a great Deal difficulty to get information the subject and in the midst the investigation the postmaster general had issued an order to strike Down the whole service without discrimination to one trip per week. That pres sure had been wickedly brought to Bear to extort Money and stifle investigation. It was unprecedented Conduce and no Man could defend it. It was said the Law had been conformed to. This Petti fogging would disgrace a Village Law yer but when it came from a Quarter where manliness and statesmanship should be expected words could not convey the scorn with which it should be repelled by the House.

He was very highly respected in his Vicinity and when it became known Roand the neighbor Hood that the soul had gone from a body that had been Bach use to agric Itata society a gloomy Shadow that the old Sun Ronld not lift seemed to hang Over the new grown Fields. The men left their grubbing hoes sticking in the ground and went to the scene sorrow and the women leaving half cooked meals in charge children accompanied them. A Large party volunteered to sit up the Corpse and when night came Many sad faces Many sad women and men were seen allowed by the Mellow ing Light tallow candles. The min ister Carue and entering the door remarked to Earth and ashes to ashes 1 the Corpse Lay a table covered with a Sheet. Has gone Over the Road vre must All trav said the minister. I thought i saw the Sheet said the watchers. See if there is a cat under it 1 the company sat still. Am confident that the Sheet said the Man. The minister arose and lifted the Sheet and standing he looked at the pallid face he dead Man. The Corpse s head left the table. The minister fell Back. Stiff Stark and terrible the Corpse slowly arose from the table Aud attained a sitting posture. The legs remained stretched ont and the arms folded. The women shrieked Aud ran from the room and the minister reprimanding them for their and want Confidence climbed a Fence Aud stood in the tur nip Patch. Ashen the frightened people saw that Tho Corpse did not intend to follow they went Back into the House. The Corpse still retained the upright Lickl posture. Stiff As the attitude struck by an Amateur the stage. Wilh fears somewhat allayed the minister advanced and placing a band the dead Man s breast pressed him backward. Proportionately As his head went Down his heels came up and when his head touched the Board his heels were High in the air. The cause the dead Man s Freak was then Dis covered. The Muscles the by rheumatism Wero contracting. It required the efforts two men to straighten the Corpse. A gentleman who was present declares that to never before passed such a fearful night and with Clarence adds i would not pass another such a night though there to buy a world Happy Days so full dismal terror was the foe the deaf. Hie wonderful Audi phone. A. Chicago invention coming to tie throng a. And permanent Relief the deaf mates tie the inventor r. S. Rhodes to the deaf and drab Institute report the trial and its singularly Gratifying peso its. From the Omaha Dally Republican a representative the Republican invitation made a visit to the Nebraska Asylum Tor deat mutes to witness the trial the Audi phone an invention by r. Chicago and says arriving at the institution the reporter found. Rhodes giving an Audi phone lesson to fifteen deaf mutes who were Assem bled in the parlor. Each Pupil was using a Audi phone with results that were certainly astonishing. One Young maa told the reporter that until yesterday he had never heard a sound but could read and write Well. With Liis instrument he pronounced the letters the alphabet plainly and ire venture to say in a very few months he will be Able to talk Well. The first trouble seems to be in the use the Tongue and lips to make sounds never heard before. Miss Collins Falls City tried the instrument and could hear Well but not her own voice but when she was handed the double Audi phone. Where the two discs with their lower edges her to hear her own voice for the first time. Words cannot express her astonishment. And All this is through the auditory nerve with a connection the Teeth. The Carbon Azacl disc rubber like a fan is held Between the Teeth and. The external ear has nothing to do with the sound. After the experiments by. Rhodes prof. Gillespie who has perhaps Given More attention to the Oral instructions the Deal and dumb than any other teacher in the West took the class in hand. It swell known that persons afflicted with deafness watch the lips. To prevent this up Reading the professor held a Book before his Mouth and told the pupils who were standing with the Audi phone Between their Teeth to indicate How Many times he said either Oace twice and one two fingers came up from the whole class As lie called the letter. He then went Over rhe set e rising an octave and each Pupu followed intonation his voice. He then went to the other Side the room out their sight and called out letters and words which were promptly repeated and All this was. Done with Only two Days instruction. The great Success opening a world a new world As it May be truth fully said to these deaf mutes in a grand work and to stand among these Intelli gent faces who before never heard a voice sound and see the pleasure exhibited it the Prospect hearing and speaking is a Bette entertainment than the world fashion can offer. Amongst the Bright scholars Are two Sisters from Furnas county who seemed so Apt to learn the use the Audi phone and mrs. Grundy might straighten Back when we say that they Are indians. Yes two girls whose color would not indicate the fact but whose future will Demon Strate two women educated at this institution such As the world wants. State institutions should be placed in the hands men who will look at the future those in their charge and this great Western Field for Active labor brains and muscle is open. A great maa once said nature is True to and so it has proved with those who have no Chance to hear the singing Birds the voices the winds among her Pines. A Keener perception a deeper thought a Realiza Tion nature s works is Al. Within the minds the deaf and dumb. This great invention opens up a new world to them. Or. Rhodes was so much pleased with the successful operation his invention and the practical results to be attained under the instruction prof. Who is so Earnest in the he made a donation the Audi phones needed Worthe use the institution charging the professor to let the pupils take them Home during vacation and astonish father and Mother by showing them that they could both hear and talk. Or. Rhodes who uses an Audi phone i himself says that holding a watch be tween his Teeth first attracted his Atten Tion to the possibility the which is proving so great n Success. Dou t propose to ski oink 01 the management the institution the Good food furnished the pupils the instruction Given by skilled teachers the cleanliness and pleasant appearance the buildings the Complete and we Meiy say happiness which seems to prevail but we say do your duty with pleasure combined and go and see Lor yourself.
