This war Is not IKely to last long enough to give many major-generals a chance to display their couraije or abilities. It u likely to be over before any fighting occurs on land. THIS will likely oe an eventful week in our war with Spain. American soldiers will likely Invade Cuba, tho battleship Oregon will arrive in Cuban waters,and Jf the Spanish fleet reaches Porto Rico a great naval battle may be expected. Another Spanish defeat will very likely lead to the overthrow of the Sagasta mln- Istiry and may Involve Spain in civil war. Her people are ready for revolution.

THE Republican congressional cor- ve'ntion will be held in ibis city on the 26ih of thii!' month. It looks as though the contest had narrowed down between Congressman Steele and Judge McConnell. In case Judge McConnell get* a solid delegation from this county, he will stand a good show of securing ihe nomination. Major Slieele has lost ground since the Howard county contest and it is doubtful iljhe secures a majority in the Howard county delegation. He will have his own county solid and apart of.

Dewey's victory over tlie- Spanish Is one of the most notable in history. The destruction of an enemy's fleet without the loss of a man and without injury to tbe attacking fieet, is one of the most remarkable in all history. .Commodore Dewey has shown the same courage that has oharcterizad the American sailor In all our wars—tbe game interpld'lty, the same daring, He knew whera the enemy's fleet lay. He dared the dangers of submarine wines and boldly headed his warships into the bay of Manila. He boldly attacked the Span- 'iih fie&t that had gathered there and when the iimoke of battle cleared away (hat particular Spanish fleet hud been demolished. It could not «v«n run away to live to fight some other day. Dewey's name is one not. born to die To him the opportunity came tc make a most; glorious re cor 1 and bd was equal to (be opportunity.

Whv .will a -woman drag out a sickly, half-hearted existence and miss three-quarters of the joy of living-, when she has health almost within her grasp ? If she does not value her good looks, does she not value her comfort ? Why. my sister, -will you suffer that dull pain in the small of your back, those bearing-down, = ~ d.-ngging- sensations in the loins, ~ that terrible fullness in the lower bowel, caused by constipation pro ceeding- from the womb lying over and pressing- on the rectum ? Do you know that these are signs of displacement, and that you will never be well while that Lasts ? What a woman needs who is thus affected is to strengthen the ligaments i,o they will keep her org-azis in place. There In Mothing- better for this purpose than Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. The great volume of testimony which is constantly rolling in, proves that the Compo'smd is constantly curiiijr thousands of just such cases. The following,letter from Mrs. Marlow is only, one of many thousands which Mrs. Pinkham'has received this year from those she has relieved—surely such testimony is conrincing-: '"My trouble commenced after the birth of my last child.- I did not know what was the matter with me. My husband went to our family physician and described my symptoms, and he said I had displacement and falling- of the womb. He sent me some medicine, but it did little g-ood. I let it go on about two yoars, and every time I did any hard work my womb would corae down. Finally a lady friend advised me to try Lydia E Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, which I did. The first bottle helped me so much, I continued to take it rig-ht along. My hack was almost the same as no back. I •oiild not lift scarcely any weight. My life was just a drag to me.

Another victory like that at Manila will end the war with Spain. Dewey struck a vital blow from which Spain can never recover. THE jcieutiousn'ess.

The editor finds that the dons gained their last victory at sea in the gulf of Lepanto, where, with the aid of two Italian fleets, they whipped and destroyed the Turkish navy. But thut victory was in the reign of Queen Elizabeth und the fight of Lepanto occurred 327 years ago. Seventeen years after Lepanto, in 1588, that is, Philip 11 of Spain tried another great sea fight, this time-with England. Its disastrous result is known to history in the tale of the destruction of the armada. Next Spuin .lost Gibraltar, and she hns been losing sea battles ever since. Jndgiut; frosu" .ner history in thu past three centuries, as . recalled by the tit. Louis editor, it ought to take about three months lor ns to whip the cruel aud decreph old country oft' the seas and give htr .-inch a thrashing that it will be three centuries more belore she sends out another fleet.

'____ Where the Luck Is. Scribner's Magazine has an editorial on the inefficiency of people who work for other peaple, A lady pays $25u for a gowu. It conies home half .finished, rips out almost if she looks at it aud is full of basting threads. She takes it back vcrathfully to the man dressmaker and he bewails his luck and blames it all on "thoso girls" whom ha hires to sew by the day. Her husband has the same kind of lack with the office boys or clerks whom he hires or the mail whom he enjplcy> at $30 a month "and found" to till tbe ground on his country place. The story is the same throughout—hired persons will not do their work right. The 3cri!ffle:r editor attributes this general failing to various reasons. One is ignorance pure and simple. The hireling people botch things because they do not know any better. Sometimes, too, he says, false pride, the feeling that they are above their -work and as good as their employer, prompts them to flight the task. The editor is wrong.

The constitution says, "Congress shall have power to provide for calling forth the militia to execute the laws of' the Union, suppress insurrections andrepel, invasions." Uougresi! bylaw has given the president the right at any time to call out tbe militia for the purposes specified. Since nothing ia said of the right to order them to the front in case the armies of the United States were sent to foreign soil the presumption is that the president has not such authority. There is no doubt, however, in the present instance that it will be the pleasure aud glory of the national gaard regiments to volunteer to help drive Spain from Cuba. The graceful way of offering these gallant services has already been iidopuid in several instances by the militia tendering their services to the governor of their own state and he in his turn making offer of the regi- mepta to the president for the war. This mode of procedure recognizes state rights properly and nt the t-ame time in the most desirable way acknowledges the paramount sovereignty of the United States. Certainly the sympntby of all Americans must be with tbe queen of Spain aud her young son in the present terrible situation, Sh^ dares not accede to onr demand to give up Cuba for fear of revolution at ho.ne. and if she fights us, as she -is compelled to do, she will bf. sure to lose hgth Cuba and her throne. Vveyler," batcher iu Cubu, traitor ac borne, is aiuiost certainly kuo\vn to be plotting with Dun Ca,rlos, the pretender. to make him k^-ig of Spain. He does this out of a wean and petty motiva'of revenge for the hurt to his vanity when he was recalled from Cuba. Poultry lu Politics. There are numerous old hens in political office ia the United States, which nobody can deny. They cackle and gather up the public pickings as they go, and we are used to them. It has been reserved to Pennsylvania, however, to unearth a uestful of scandals in connection with the poultry bulletin, and the whole state is cackling over it. In that department of the great sominonwealth which furnishes free information to ruralists there was published some time aiuce a hen bulletin. It dealt in. a poetic, and picturesque way •with the diseases of poultry, giving learned names to gapes, chicken cholera, swell neck, hen eating her feathers, etc. So far 'twas well. Bat the hen bulletin gave out as to its supply. Then the legislature authorized a new and enlarged edition, "wftb such addition kl matter and changes as tha author* may deem necessary to explain this important subject." In the last clause -was the open door. "The authors" set to work and raked the archives of the past, present and future for material to pad out that hen cholera book. The original modest pamphlet had cost, plates and all, $500. The enlarged poultry bulletin cost $50,000. The authors had crammed iu a quantity of material concerning bats, deer and fish, illustrated with fancy colored plates. How they reconciled it with their conscience to tack these upon a bulletin on tbe gapes we know not, but they did. The book would have gone through in beautiful shape and somebody, several bodies, would have made a lot of money out of it, bnt Governor Hastings heard of it, and with adamantine heartlessness sat upon the whole delectable scheme. He told the state librarian not to accept a copy of it and tbe auditor to draw no warrant to pay for it. Now the authors can have their beautiful book on the connection of bats with hen cholera to admire all to themselves. Ocean Telegraph Stations. No donbt during tbe days of uncertainty in regard to the fate of 1;he American liner Paris and, her chancea of being captured or destroyed en route by a Spanish war vessel the thought occurred to many that there ought to be some way of establishing one or more cable telegraph stations in midocaan. Wherever there is a break in tbe ocean cable, as there has been from time to time ever since submarine telegraphs were laid, it is comparatively The nninber of rich American citizens who offer to help fit out and maintain in the field regiments from their respective states is notable and is increasing. It show&that money does not choke patriotism, as so macy Americans who have none are fond of declaring. There will be companies of stock brokers, of telegraph clerks, of railway trainmen and miners enlisted for the war. Bnt the liveliest, howlingest company of all -will be the cowboys from the plains of the trackless west j. | easyto find the ragged ends of the line and splice them. What is to binder, therefore, the anchoring of a ship in raid- ocean somewhere along tbe Ime of the cable and making of it a telegraph station? Lighthouse ships are maintained permanently in parts of the sea more perilous so far as danger from storm and hurricane goes than the open ocean, Tbe cable ship, close to the lanes of ocean travel, powerfully built, held fast bv great anchors to her place aud connected by strong insulated wires with the submarine telegraph, would be able to give notice to both Eurcpe and America of tbe passing of e'rery vessel that came within rang'e night or day. Indeed improved methods of telegraphing ioa ; j make the eirta,bli£hn>eut of it midocean cable station easily practicable. „ . _ ~ . A W0RMUT FAD.
