AGAIN DC SESSION.
Both House of Congress. little Busi
ness tor Senate. House Bills. -WiHntaTOH,
Jan. 0. The principal
Item on the House programme for the
week I the Hepburn isthmian canal
bill, which la the special order for Tues
day. No limit has been fixed as to the
time for debate upon this measure, but
Mr. Hepburn does not contemplate a
prolonged discussion of it. It is sur
mised In some quarters, however, that If
the proposition of the Panama Canal
Company to sell Its property and fran
chise for $40,000,000 should be made to
morrow, as promised, thl may have the
effect of opening a wider field of discus
sion than at first seemed probable, and
If this should prove to be the case the
bill may be before the Bese for a long
er time than la now contemplated. Mr.
Burton has given notice of a speech on
the bill and it i understood that there
will be other speeches In criticism of
special features of the measure, bnt Its
friends are very sanguine not only that
the bill will pass, but It will pas speedi
It 1 expected that by the time the ca
nal bill 1 disposed of there will be one
or more appropriation bills ready for
consideration . by the) Bouse. None of
the appropriation oill has yet been
passed on by the appropriation com
mittee, but both the urgent deficiency
and the pension bills are In a forward
state and the expectation is that they
will be considered by the committee dur
ing the current week. The present in
tention Is to give first attention to the
deficiency bill. The estimates for that
bill aggregate about $12,000,000 and it is
not believed that these figures will be
scaled down materially.
The Senate has no programme for the
week and very little business on its cal
endar as the reorganization of the Senate
committees did not take place until just
before the holidays.

' TRICKS OF THE TRADE.
Cups. Brashes and Sponge That Are
Left Ia Barber Shops.
"What becomes of all the old shav
ing mugs 7" was tbe question asked tbe
"What becomes of the owners)" was
Neither side seemed disposed to an
swer tbe query, and there was an awk
ward silence. Tbe barber slapped his
rasor on the strop, smeared some extra
lather on the victim's month so he
.wouldn't be inclined to Interrupt and
aid in a stage whisper:
: "Now, I'll tell you, but I don't want
It shouted from tbe housetops. We
use the mugs again." .
He paused and sighed as he tossed
tbe questioner's head the other way,
; "Tea,'' he continued, X4Ve use them
again. We don't like to lose custom
ers; but, If we must lose them, why, we
don't mind if they leave their cups,
etc behind. It's surprising how many
do; but, then, barbers do mostly, a
'shifting trade.' Ifa no secret that we
urge customers to have their own cup.
Most of them are satisfied if they have
a private cup, brush and sponge. We
supply them with the man's name on
the cup for $1.60, and our profit on the
transaction is 60 cents. .. When a man
has a razor and comb and brush be
sides the other toola, he generally takes
the whole lot away when he's leaving;
but countless cups, -r brushes and
sponges are left behind In every barber
shop. -! J" .
"The cups are always good. ' Many of
them contain such common names as
John Smith," William Jones, etc., and
when some other John Smith or Wil
liam Jones orders a cup we simply sup
ply him with the cast off one. Some
times they need a llttlle touching up
with gilding; but, on tbe whole, it's
very profitable. . ,

Denver's Committee ct Safety.
Dknver, Jan, 5. At a mas meeting
of citizens here today, a committee of
safety was organized as a protection
against criminals with which the city
has been infested for the past year or
more. The streets will be patrolled at
night by armed citizens, and any per
son who may fall to give a satisfactory
reason for being iu the streets will bear
rested. This action has been made necessary
in the opinion of the citizens by crimi
nal assaults ou women, hold-ups and
robberies, which have been of almost
dally occurrence. Xho action of today
was Incited Dy the murder or 14-year-oia
Harold Fridborn, and an assault on his
sister on New Year's Day.
Ducks and geese need no grain when
they have plenty of grass.
Chicken fatten faster on cooked food
than on raw because It Is more easily
When soft feed is given to elthert
young or old fowls, It should never be
thrown on the ground. .
When closely confined, the loose grain
fed to fowls should be scattered among
litter of some kind, so that tbey can
scratch It out
There Is nothing so bad for the health
and well being of poultry ns Confining
thorn In close quarters aud preventing
them from taking needed exercise.
Oqe of the most Important items to
insure success In the lintcblug of chick
ens In winter Is to get the eggs from ft
flock of healthy nud vigorous fowls.
There Is better health among roving
fowls becnuso they get the food that is
best for digestion and get the necessary
grit to help the gizzard do Its work.
When necessary to administer uiedU
cine by placing It In the drinking war
ter, keep the birds from drluk for sev
eral hours. They are then thirsty and
more apt to get a good swallow.
The Last Execution at Tybnrn.
The last execution on a permanent
gallows In London took place at Ty
burn on Nov. 7, 1783, the malefactor
being one John Austin, condemned for
highway robbery with violence. For
centuries Tyburn had been the scene
of executions for criminals condemned
In Middlesex, and before the erection
of the permanent gibbet occasional
hangings had taken place, record exist
ing of the hanging of Judge Tressillan
and Nicholas Brembre at that place as
far back as 1388.
The gallows consisted of three posts,
and around It were open galleries, re
sembling race stands, In which seats
were let. On account of the disgrace
ful scenes on the road, executions were
transferred in 1783 to the area in front
of Newgate, despite tbe objections Of
residents, and on Dec; 3 of that year
the first banging took place there,
when no less than ten were executed.
