There Ls a general conviction itliat destructive schemes will not succeed, although at present political uncertainties canst part of the business that might be done to be postponed until the future Is more dear. In a nation where every man Is, a ruler, and has his opinion about things every man's expoctattons or fears affect buslnciss of all sorts. When conventions are over, the field for. doubt will be much narrowed." The nomination of McKlnley will have tine bracing effect os a tonic on the spirit of trade ami enterprise. The assurance-that the policy of protection ana the honest, reliable nduinilstratdbn of affairs always made certain by tbe election to power of the Republican party will make those who are walking lu the dark sure of their footing. Certainty !» a powerful and necessary factor in the revival of business. It is vitally Important to every interest that the Republican standard be victorious la November. There Is a call from every part of the country for an Immediate return to power of the party that knows the best use of opportunities. Cass county's portion of the victory Is worth an anxious and determined struggle. Tne flgbt Is to be mode wJtti an unbroken front, and the Inner' workings of the organization must give the best that Is In them, each In unlsoa wJCh all the rest. It has always been party custom to renomlnate all short term officers unless 'good reasons are found for their withdrawal. The men 'who finish short terms this year are stainless In public service. No man can bring .a grievance against one of them. They are before the delegates for a second nomination. The prospects brighten for the success of the Republican party In- Cass county. The use of care and judgment in choosing the county ticket will make victory certain. Harmony from first to last is the secret of a triumphant campaign, The nominees must be selected without dissent. A return to Republicanism., prosperity for all, higher wages, 'good times, protection, reciprocity, and the assurance of the upholding of Americanism, all are combined in the momentous stamp- Ing of the eagle In November. A bill providing for the preparations of plans or designs for a memorial, or statue of Gen. U. S. Grant, to be erected on Government grounds at Washington is now in the hands of the Senate committee on public grounds and buildings. One of the recent suggestions Is a ticket made up of the two "Mac's"' Me-, Kluley and McA-lpin. Gen. E. A. Mc- Alpiu, of Minnesota, president of the National Republican League, is being mentioned for vice president. ..-'•• The presence of 111' feeling within,, saps the vital force .of a party. .'Loyalty to tlic best interests of nil will prevent any word or. act, to cause enmtty be- :tween candidates ..or.ramong their friends. - ; ' : '- •• The Democrats-are .strong In Cuss county.

Small Boy with * Bed Shirt Infurl»te»-» Jersey City Bovine. •' '-, A big black bull broke nway from a herd in Jersey City, the .other day and played more havoclii a candy store than the proverbial bull in a china shop.' He had caused considerably trouble to his drivers and. had injured "one man seriously by tossing him over'a fence when he caught sight of a small boy wearing a red shirt and standing in the door of Brand's candy store,, near Palisade avenue. With a. loud., bellow the bul! charged for the luckless youth, who fled into the store. The bull followed, the boy just crawled under a counter in time to escape his horns; Three women who were in the rear of the store screamed loudly uud ran into a room adjoining the store,; The door was a stout one else the bull might have followed, as it charged against the door with.a crash. . When the animal found that he could not follow the women he proceeded to do damage to the stock. A .big showcase filled with assorted candies was lifted off the counters and sent crashing to the floor. Ten jars and boxes filled with other sweets .were. tossed about and in a very short time the store was well-nigh demolished^ While tli* bull was'gravely inspecting the soda water''fountain and placidly • chewing a hunk of tutti frutti the drovers arrived. .Tho 1 ."trail ffeir.g them, rushed from the:store, but was lassoed as he reached the sidewalk..

Abovei All Things She Mont Detests ; •"' . Da»t. When a weary housekeeper was asked i what her idea of Heaven was .she replied: ."A place where, there is no dust and no dirty dishes." To the housewife who has a servant to wash her dishes the second clause of the* reply may not carry weight, bur, she must have a very efficient staff of domestics at her command who does not appreciate the pest of dust. The putting ''hi oi coal 1 in the cellar covers all the furniture upstairs with a black dust; jthe furnace is shaken down, and all polished surfaces are gray; while in summer a. fine, light, impalpable powder from the streets sifts in hourly through'every chink and crevice. While' it is' well and proper for the. -housekeeper to fight the nuisance, and once a day have her house thoroughly dusted, she (may. become a slave to her enemy. She .-.is no worse oft than her neighbors, and she would do well to 1 console herself with this thought, and not make.'herself and everybody else miserable because of a dim mirror or a wh(tcne.d chair-rung.. I have impressed painfully upon my mind the picture of 1 a,' young married friend, fragile-in:-appearance, and, in trirthj whose/1 ife was worn to a thread by her arch-foe—dust. She was the mistress of a large house, entirely furnished'as to floors, mantels and ivainscoting.in polished antique oai. She _kept two servants, but.the.-parlormaid had titne to dust the house only once per diem, : The remainder:of tlie time tlie so-called, mistress undertook to keep things- clean. My most, vivid recollection 1 of her is as Aei appeared two-thirds of the time, ;worn. : 'and 'weary,, with a dust-, cloth jn'lier 1 hand. She used to .'say, half laughing,.half, sorrowfully, that d fit legend for her tombstone would be: • "Dust thou. art, to dust returneth." • .'.

The students of the Ohio Wcsloyan university went on a grand slrikc the other evening at "chapel time. Chapel is held after the close of the last recitation hour at 4:30 o'clock, aovj when this ,1ime came almost nil of the- 3,000 students gathered at the chapel untrauca Mid then deliberately wcn.t away. They utterly ignored t!;c commands r.ni.1 entreaties of the faculty to remain, and with jenrs and vulgar expressions started down the street. A fewsiraff- '"•lincr onM; went, in, and brief exercises were conducted by Prof. Williams, who is actintr ns president during the absence of TreKitlom, Usshfoi'i'l a* the Jfctbodist general coi-.fcrence at ClcvP- Jantl. The students'who cut ciinpcl went down ^^ain street in a body, singing their college songs and giving their college yells. Some preparatory studenta, who 'allowed their zeal to run beyond the bounds of reason, battered the sigr.s of merchants ns ttey were jinssed jn the line of march. They picked up stones and every other missile within reach and threw them promiscuously, breaking several plate glass windows nnd hitting- a team of horses, hitched to a rail. The frightened beasts started on a run, and before they could be stopped the wagon to which they were Attached was demolished. Severn! hundred of the college boys went to Monnett Mil, the ladies' dormitory, and marched through it from end ft) end, making'- much ado about the whole affair. Their coarse and vulgar remarks so shocked several of the girls that they packed' up at once and left for home. The cause of the strike is said to be that the faculty has greatly disappointed the college glee club, which had arranged .a long western tour under the approval of the faculty, and now, just on the eve of making the tour, such conditions are put upon them ns to greatly discourage them nnd make 1 it barely possible for the tour to be made. This made the students angry, for they say it will be the means of injuring tbe university, and they do- not intend to stand it. Tbe strike is the first action taken by the students to express themselves on the action of the faculty. SHE DOES A MAN'S WORK. 3Ir«. McLood Sues for Services R<m<leT«l Out West. Mrs. Johanna McLcod, ot present Jiving in EnstPatchogue, Long Island, has brought suit against her'husband, Alexander French McLeod, for separation a-nd alimony. She swears that while living with her husband in Jfontona he was a. sufferer from, rheumatism, and unable to do the. hard work of panning in the placer streams for gold dust. Tlicy had located in what seemed to be a, rich district, and 1,ho wife promptly attired herself in male costume and went to work as a miner. Her invalid husband was unable to do more than "wash" the products of herdiggifigand panning. According to her complaint, this brave woman received from hier -husband only ten dollars as her share of her labor, but got plenty of abuse, and ill treatment. The rough men among w'hom ske v.'orUed in Montana never suspected her sex When the MeLeods left tlic mines 3. year ngo last February the "camp" thought that they were a pair of prosperous brothers. Mr, and Mrs. ifsLeod; .it is said, left Montana with $80,000. Slits came to New York at his request .and lie went to Hot Springs. A mouth 'or two later she heard that he had become smitten with another woman, named Mrs. Nellie Grace Sterns. Mrs. ,McLcod found the couple in St. Louis. 'Mutual friends induced llrs.

MOST PECULIAR ROOSTER Ho Very Sloch Re«croblcs a Bird adlMe. To see a rooster vha.t resembles a bird of paradise is a rare sight, but such a one lias recently been a common spectacle in Japan, says the New York. World. This particular fowl was, apart from his gorgeous appendage, of the ordinary ty pc found in Japan, except that he was a little More proud in his bearing than his fcllowsl It may have been his manner that first led l.o his selection as the bearer of a most magnificent tail. The brief history that can be obtained of this freak rooster is silent on that point. It probably was selected because only ojj arrogant, lordly manner could support-such a wonderful and variegated appendage. Be that as it may, the rooster did certainly havea tail J6feetlong. In'it-were all the bright colors imaginable. .The tail was far more brilliant in its colorings than the shining fenther-fan of a peacock. The neighbors of the Jap d isplayed no interest in the freak bird, lint were amused by those who expressed admiration and wonder, who were invariably foreign travelers. Then it was discovered tliattliebeau- tiful long tail wns not a freak of nature, but the clever work of the ingenious Jap, who had fashioned and fastened the- tail in such a way as to defy detection except after ivhe most minute scrutiny.
