Mr. Goodel, a member of the Leg islature from Wayne county, Mich., while in Chicago recently, was hand ed, in the dining room of a hotel, a bill of fare printed in French. Being unfamiliar with the language, he or dered five articles on the bill which had an aggregate value of 80 cents. When the order was delivered he found that he had potatoes cooked in five different styles and nothing else. He has introduced a bill in the Leg islature providing that bills of h: of public dining rooms must be printed only in the English language. Ex.

He has been viewed from every stand point except an unbiased and impar tial one. Possibly the time has come when that can be done. His phe nomenal intelectual capacity is admit ted on all hands. Small attention has been directed, however, to his physical developement, which alone enabled him to bear the fatigues and labors necessary to such a career. Indeed it was no less wonderful than his mental characreristics. He had a "frame of adamant" as well as "a soul of fire." His labors would have worn out physically half a dozen ordinary men. He was insensible to heat or cold or fitigue. Attention has been called to the great capacity ol his skull, but anoth er physiological fact, which probably had a most important bearing on his succcess, has passed almost unnoted. His normal puke, or heart beat, was j ' , Cmvvis, Register of Deed , only 40 to the n i.iute. Doubtless ; s. . Tvson, Treasurer, this had a direct influence in enabling i W.m.

It was noted that he rarely perspired, and, toiling along under the summer's sun through the desert in the Egyp tian campaign, not a drop of per spiration was .feen on his brow. Physiologists may, perhaps be able to determine other effects upon his physical and mental activity from this abnormal slowness of circulation. His chest measurement was as phenome nal as that ol his skull.

The tiuth is, both are correct, for 5 feet 3 inches old French measurement is 5 feet 6 inch es English measurment. A forgetful ness of this fact has caused the appar rent conflict of statement. His marvellous good health was an indispensible lactor in his success. It was noted by his teachers at school. It did not fail him once in his long and j m.
