The luipiTK H(!em to think that thl« action will moot with vigorous opposition on the part of the Congressman whoKP •'patronage" Is thus taken from them, and their ability to build up a "machine' to this extent diminished. As a matter of fact the order of the Ppesident only puu into concrete form what has In effect been the practice of the Post Office Department for seven or elfiht years. For seven years at least to my personal knowledge thi- Department has not permitted the removal of a fourth class postmaster for anything other than failure to properly perform the duties of his offirr. so that the late order of the President only gives his official sanction to a practice that Is already In existance. And so far as I have heard an expression of sentiment the Members of Congress will certainly have no romplaint to make. As a matter of politics every Congressman understands perfectly well that his post of fioe patronage is a source of weakness rather than of strength; while as a matter of the fitness of things every Congressman must concede that the people onght to be permitted to elect their postmasters just as they elect their other local officials. Of course this cannot be done under the present Constitution and doubtful whether the Constitution will ever bee banged so as to permit It to be done. It is for that reason that the present system has grown up. of hav Ing postmasters appointed upon the recommendation of the Congressman It is a little difficult also to see Just how the matter can be managed through ordinary Civil Service chan nels because It Is pretty hard to figure out what kind of an examination will test the ability of a man to make a good postmaster. Nearly anybody "f averaee Intelligence can perform the routine duties of a post office. But a very Important consideration should be the personal relations of the postmaster to his patrons, his courtesy, his willingness to oblige and all the things that go to make lip Individual popularity. It will I'o interesting to see just how the Civ il Service Commission works out an • xamlnatlon that will test these things. • • • One of the conditions of the with drawal from Peking of the foreign forces sent there to restore order during the Boxer insurrection was the payment to the various governments of the expense incurred by them in the expedition. It was perhaps im possible just at that lime to figure out exactly the amount due each gov emment and so the men In charge of the negotiations fixed a figure which would without question be large enough. WTien the United States came to balance Its accounls accurately It was discovered that the' amount which the Chinese Government had asreed to pay was some fourteen millions greater than the expense we had actually Incurred. By Act of Congress, therefore, upon the recommendation of the President the payment of this fourteen million dollars was i>|uinb and CmdweU,.

Exercise But County ('lerk Learned That More Pheasants Can Be Had. • County Clerk Emmett Culbertson some time ago wrote to Del Travis, state game warden, asking whether or not It would be possible to obtain some more pheasants for this county. Mr. Culbertson had received requests from several local parties who wanted some of the birds to release on their land. In reply Mr. Travis stated that he could not supply hiiri now but might next year. Mr. Culbertson has learned, however, that the pheasants can be obtained at Oak Park, 111., where Mr. Travis secured those he sent here and to other counties of the state. More women than men have piles, ft Is because they take so little outdoor exercise and are so often constipated. There is a stagnation of blood in the lower bowel, and no amount of cutting or treatment with ointments and suppositories will remove this cause. Dr. Leonhardt's Hem-Rold, an internal, tablet medicine, will permanently cure any case of piles, removing the cause. Price, $1 at Chas. B. Spencer & Co.'s. Fully guaranteed.
