was adopted after the flagrant disclos

the national Legislature. That it has
been considered a dead letter is evi

was shameful, notwithstanding its
naivete, and the burning indignation
indulged by Mr. Blount and the evi
dent alarm exhibited by Mr. Thomp
son did not relieve it of any of its bad
features. After debate, upon motion
of Mr. Hammond, a committee was
raised with plenary powers to investi
gate the whole matter.
We confess that we do not anticipate
the report of the committee, if one
should ever be made, with any degree
of satisfaction. Members will not
tell on themselves, and the ex
members and lobbyists will not

least that can be hoped for will be an
honest attempt to inforce the rule,
which is wise one, for the future.

one of these ex-member lobbyists han

ing the closing hours of the Congress,
in the hope of getting the bills in which
he was interested in shape for consid

tlie closing scene at the final vote on

of another when some member alluded

What constitutes a Hue flower garden?
A difficult question. A gentleman recently
told me that the handsomest floral effect
he had ever seen was produced by roses ln
fiont, sunflowers on one and morning glo-
ries on the other side of a bouse. But
many people regard the sunflower ns too
common for cultivation, and the morning
glory, wonderfully delicate and richly
varied though It be, as positively vulgar.
Since the establishment of a first-class
seed-house ln our midst the people havs
been freed from the domination and ava
rice of the traveling seedsman, and the
contents ot the flower garden wonderfully
varied. In reply to a question as to what
flower seed were most tn demsnd, Mr.
Sargent referred to his sale book and gave
the names of slxty-eight annuals. These
have been sold In all tbelr varieties ma
king a list ot several hundred plants.
They may been seen about the city and
their effect in flower gardens readily dis-
cemed. Interested in the production of
these plants, I accepted an Invitation from
Mr. E. M..Sargent to visit the nursery of
his firm, which is st'unted to the left ot
l*io Nono college and about a mile from the
city. The tract ot land embraces about
twenty-flve acrai, and it is really wonder-
ful to see wbat lias been accomplished up
on ground of ordinary fertility within a
few months. Under the guide ot the pro
prietor's father, a thorough Honst and
botanist, I was shown all over the nurse

gold:, mixed portunlas, canary ‘birds,
a plant whose bloom resembles
miniature canary, Japan pinks, asters,

timate could be formed of the number of
planta growing. 8ome idea, bowaver, may
be obtained of the vast quantity, when It
is known that o( one variety of these flow-
era a'one 16,000 were growing in sight.
The planta are not yet In full bloom, but
are thriving. In a couple of sreeks tlie
twenty-odd acres will lie covered with every
