When a minister spends 5 to attend a wedding and gels a $3 fee, he is not likely to think men should do as did Solomon and marry several hundred-that is, if he (the preacher) should tie the several knots.

The amount expended for charity was $87,570.03. The handling of this money is thus spoken,of by Captain McCormick: The proper distribution of this fund is one of the perplexing incidents of tbe office, the more so from the iact that a great number of applicants for relief are not and never have been and never will be members of our organization, but are imbued with tbe idea that on their unsupported statements they wore the blue iu the days of the grand army. Inasmuch, however, as many of the cases are absolutely worthy, and as many old soldiers have been provided with necessary rations aud sleeping quarters, and others Bent to their homes and friends, the perplexities are overshadowed by the fact that distress has been*relieved. receipts and expenditures.

The Dtfy Devoted to the Cou�idcratlon of the New Code-Argument � For and ARttinit Washington, Feb. 10-Tho House devoted tbe entire day to the consideration of the new code of rules. It is understood no arrangement has been arrived at as to whec the discussion shall terminate. Mr. Canuoa, in reporting the rules explained that of the 47 rules which governed the last House, 29 were reported without material change. The changes were such as would enable tbe will of the majority to be ascertained and expressed with tho utmost expediency consistent with fair debate. He defended tbe proposed chauge prohibiting tbe Speaker from eu-tortatuiug dilatory motions. He denied that it was tyrannical. No Speaker would daro refuso to entertain a motion unless it was apparent to all that it was dilatory. Discussing tbe rale permitting the Speaker to count a quorum, he said that if the Dsmoorats wanted to go before tho country at against that principle the Republicans were ready to meet them. other arguments. Mr. Mills argued for the rights of the minority in the shape of rules which, while providing for a procedure of business, would preserve and protect their rights. Mr. Bayne, of Pennsylvania, justified the Committee on Rules iu bringing in the proposed code, arguing that it would facilitate the transaction of business, and would prevent tbe minority from nullifying tbe will of tho majority of the Representatives of tbe people. Mr. Blount, of Georgia, opposed the proposed rules, dwelling in special antagonism upon tho clause making 100 members a quorum. Tbe Committee of the Whole then adjourned. * business ok the senate. The Senate to-day resumed consideration of tbe bill providing a temporary government for tbe territory of Ok'ahoma. The question of including "No Man's Land" as part of Oklahoma, although it is not adjacent to tho border, provoked considerable discussion, and tho bill was laid aside.

Some of the Thoughts and Utterance* of the dreat Iuvfiitor, The following extract is from "Talks with Edison," by George Parsons Lathrop, in 7/fi77�er's Magazine for February. Io addition to being extremely practical in his thoughts and processes, Edison has a rich imagination of a creating sort, and moods of ideal dreaming in his pirticular line. One day at dinner ho suddenly spoke, as if out of a deep revery, saying what a groat thing it would bo if a man had all tbe component atoms of himself under complete control, detachable and adjustable at will. "For instance," be explained, "theu I could say to one particular atom |in me-call it atom No. 4320-'Go be part of a rose for a while.' All the atoms could be sent off to become parts of different minerals, plauts and other substances. Then if by just pressing a little push button they could be called together again, they would bring back their experiences while tbey were parts of those different substances, and I should have tbe benefit of the knowledge." Of course this was only a passing fancy, an imaeinative way of expressing the constant desire which exists in the inventor's mind for a more intimate knowledge of the nature of things concerning which he has already learned so much. This desire is gratified to the farthest practicable extent by the great store of all sorts of materials-animal, vegetable and mineral -collected En his laboratory where he experiments upon and combines their various properties as a composer plays npon the instruments of bis orchestra. Indeed, in this large and imaginative aspect of his mind, Edison distinctly reminds mo of men having creative musical or poetic or artistic genius. The mingled abstraction and fire in thoir faces and eyes are noticeable in his, at times, when' he emerges from some private room in tho laboratory where ho', has been in deep inventive work. The above remark about the atoms, too, recalls a statement which he ouco made to mo regarding his conception of matter. "I do not believe," said he, "that matter is inert, acted upon by au outside force. To me it seems that every atom is possessed by a certain amount of primitive intelligence. Look at the thousand ways in which atoms of hydrogen combine with those of other elements, forming the most diverso substances. Do you mean to say tbat they do this without intelligence? Atoms iu harmonious and useful relation assume beautiful or interesting shapes aDd colors or give forth a pleasant perfume, as if expressing thoir satisfaction. In sick-noss, death, decomposition, or flltb, th� disagreement of the component atoms immediately makes itself felt by bad Jodors. Gathered together in certa:n forms, the atoms constitute animals of the lower orders. Finally they combine In man, 1 who represents the total intelligence of all tho atoms." ' "But whore does this intelligence come from originallj?" I asked. "From some power greater than ourselves." "Do you believe, then, in an intelligent Creator, a personal God'.1" "Certainly," said Mr. Edison. "Tho existence of such a God can, to my mind' almost bo provon from chomistry." Surely it is a circumstance calculated to excite reflection, and to cause a good deal of satisfaction, that this keon and penetrating mind, so vigorously representing tho practical side of American intelligence -the mind of a remarkable exponent of applied Bcionco, aud of a brilliant and prolific inventor who has spent his lifo in dealing with the material part of the world-should so confidently arrive at belief in God through a study of thoso media that often obscure tho poroeption of spiritual thiugs.

A man is famous when he is listened to in both Hemispheres and not .believed in either. A talkative barber should advertise, "Gas administered without extra charge."
