now hopes to reach a vote on the legisla
tive bill by Tuesday, so that it can be
sent over to tho House to have certain
amendments operated on there and t:en
be ready for tho President by Thursday

The Tenure of the Army
; Lndonbtcdly, as we have had occasion
to say heretofore, the riders attached to the
Legislature bill are of more practical im
portance just at tins moment than that at
tached to the Army. But there is a grave
difference involved. The Constitution
does not contemplate the suspension of ei
ther Legislative. Executive, Judiciary, as
might happen for lack of compensation.
The Constitution not only contemplates the
alisence of an army, but almost directs it.
The right is given to Congress to raise and
support armies if thought advisable, but
their lawful existence is limited by the Con
stitution to two years. On June 30, 1879,
the lawful existence of the United States
Army ends, and the militia of the several
States will resume the pot it ion assigned
them by the wise men who made the Con
stitution of this country. Raleigh Obterter.

a verdict rendered that death was
caused by appoplexy. ; -
Mr. Wilson was about 38 years old,
a devoted and consistent member of

Use of Stimulaxts by Womex.
One prominent physician here says
that the hurry and straggle of city
life, and the high nervous organiza

use of stimulants, and that, as wine
drinking is generally begun at tbe

period of budding womanhood, it soon

creates a fixed want, to the : physical
and mental detriment of the subject.
His practice confirms him in the bo-
lief that 8 Urge share of the ailments

of women are due to the cause, here

described. Another old physician
says that the etil of fashionable drink-
