Kntored »t tie Loganaport, Ind-poetoffloe M •f oouO <S*i» mnU matter, ai proidded by law. THE Indiana boys have got so far along as to be marching through Georgia. THE great question now confronting the "strategy board" is how to get at that Spanish fleet. WE can judge by the condition of things at home, how unpleasant the rainy season in Cuba must be. WILLIAM J. BRYAN has tendered his services no his country's cause nnd has been authorized by the governor of Nebraska to raise a regiment. WILL E. ENGLISH, of Indianapolis, has been appointed assistant quartermaster in the volunteer army with the rank of captain. "Capt. English" will sound well. THE doctors bay that more young men are unfitted for army service on account of cigarette smoking than for anyother cause. This should be a warning to young men. THESE too copious rains are neither good for corn planted nor the growing wheat. The rain-maker should divide his supply of wetness so that It might not reach the earth a'J at one time. WE are not taking Cuba as fast as iome of us expected, but it takes a good while to organize and transport an army to the scene of conflict. And then, perhaps, we don't want to destroy Havana, because it will soon be ours and we would have to repair it. INDIANA can reel proud of the record made in answering the call of the president for volunteers. Three regiments and two batteries are already in camp at Ohlckamauga and another awaits orders to move. No state furnished her quota of men more promptly. HON. WIIXIAM E. GLADSTONE, the great English statesman, an extended sketch of whose life and public services will oe found elsewhere in these columns, died at an early hour this morning. He was one of the lending men of the world and for more than half a century has been prominent In the affairs of Great Britain. He was born at Liverpool in 1809, and in 1832 became a member of parliament. He was four times prime minister of England. Bis death removes the greatest Englishman of this century. IT will be good news to learn that the battleship Oregon has safely reached Cuban waters. The Oregon is the second best ship In the American navy and her commander, Capt. Clark, is one of the best fighters. With hla vessel Capt. Clark has sailed 13,000 miles, and since rounding Cape Horn has been prepared for battle at any time. When warned recently to keep a close lookout for the^ Spanish fleet, be expressed, his confidence of be)tig able to hold his own single handed against the entire fleet of Spanish cruisers. It has been six weeks since the Oregon sailed from San Francisco. THE general belief is now expressed that the Spanish fle-t will attempt to make a landing at either Havana or CienfuegOB. General Blanco expects succor from the fleet. He expects reinforcements and supplies. The Spanish fleet comes as a relief expedition, and it must either make ft Cuban port or fall in its purpose. General Blanco, it Is reported, announced to his troops last Sunday that a powerful Spanish fleet had eluded the American fleet and was rapidly approaching Havana. Another sign! Scant occurrence is that the lights at Morro castle, which have not been burned since the blockade began, has since Sunday blazed a red signal, presumably to guide the Spanish fleet. EIMEY TROUBLES Cured by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, Also Backache, I cannot speak too highly of Mrs. Pinkhanrs Medicine, for it has done SO much for me. I have been a great sufferer from Kidney trouble, pains in muscles, joints, back and shoulders) feet would swell. I also had womb troubles and leucorrhoea. After using Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and Blood Purifier and Liver Pills, I felt like a new woman. My kidneys are now in perfect condition, and all my other troubles are cured.— MBS. MAGGIE POTTS, 324 Kauffman St., Philadelphia, Pa. Backache. My system was entirely run down, and I suffered with terrible backache in the small of my back and coulif hardly stand upright. I -,vas more tired in the morning than on retiring at night. I had no appetite. Sincg taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, I have gained fifteen pounds, and I look better than I ever looked before. I shall recommend it to all my friends, as it certainly is a wonderful medicine.— MRS. E. F. MoBION, 1043 Hopkins St., Cincinnati, Ohio. Kidney Trouble. Before taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, I had suffered many years with kidney trouble. The pains in my back and shoulders were terrible. My menstruation became irregular, and I was troubled with leu- oorrhcea. I was growing- very weak. J had been to many physicians but re ceived no benefit. 1 began the use o< Mrs. Pinkham's medicine, and the first bottle relieved the pain in my back and regulated the menses. It is tht best kind of medicine that I have eva taken, for it relieved the pain so quickh and cured the disease.-—MBS. LELIOAJ CSIPPEN, Box 77, St. Andrews Bay, Fl» her manufacturers and merchants at a disadvantage by her gold standaid. Her mercantile classes are now beginning to understend what is hurting them and the boards of trade of Manchester, Glasgow and other cities are petitioning for an early consideration of the opening of the mints of India to the free coinage of sliver. You cannot force trade by seizing territory, but you can do something for it by getting a standard of value that is not constantly changing, and especially one that is appreciating In value. The trade will take care of itself if given a fair chance. "!T is at once amusing and painful," says the Indianapolis Sentinel, '•to note the readiness with which so many Americans are captivated by the theory of an Anglo-Saxon alliance. An alliance for what? We doubt that half of them ever stopped to consider the question, and or those that think they have considered it nine-tenths would answer: 'Why, to extend our -commerce and power.' There is nothing in the world to prevent the extension of our commerce except the ability to compete with other nations, and that is something that cannot be controlled by alliances or other artificial schemes. The iaost successful nation in securing commerce is Great Britain—the ona that made commerce freest. She never h»d any backsets until she put AMOOHJEMEJfTS. .
