Topeka, Kas., Dec. 24.—Many men In many ages have posed as the Sphinx but it remains for John Dawson, present first assistant attorney general and private secretary to Governor- elect Stubba. to out-Herod Herod in this sphinx matter. A clam Is as noisy as a brass band, an oyster Is as communicative as the village gossip compared to this same John Dawson about affairs of state. AVhen asked when he was going to leave his present place In the attorney general's office, he did not know. When asked about the appointment of Chas. GIbbs as executive clerk as predicted by Bent Murdock, he "guessed that Murdock was guessing." When asked about any plan he had for the future, he did not know. ^Vhen asked about Stubba' plan and appointments, he would not even trust himself to speech to shook his head. He did not even know his own age or the number of the shoes he was wearing or what day of the month It was. He would not even hazard a guess about the weather or predict the outcome of the prison Investigation. FIGHTING TITBEBCULO.SIS. Metal Folbhm Say White Plagne Gets Over Half of Thehr .TIeml)ers.

"The numerous cases of kidney and bladder diseases and rheumatism are mainly due to the fact that the drinking of water, nature's greatest medicine, has been neglected. Stop loading your system with medicines and cure-alls; but get on the water wagon. If you are really sick why, of course, take the proper medicines—'plain common vegetable treatment, which will not shatter the ntTves or ruin the stomach." To cure rheumatism you must make the kidneys do their work; they are the filters of the blood. They must ))C made to strain out of the blood the waste mater and acids that cause rheumatism; the urine must be neutralized so It will no longer lie source of Irritation to the bladderi and, most of all, you must keep these acids from forming in the stomach. This Is the cause of stomach trouble and poor digestion. For the.se conditions you can do no better than take the following prescription: Fluid E.\tract Dandelion, one-half ounce; Compound Kargon, one ounce; Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla; three ounces. Mix by shaking well In bottle and take In teaspoonful doses after each meal and at bedtime, but don't forget the water. Drink plenty and often. This valuable information and simple prescription should be posted up In each household and used at the first sign of an attack of rheumatism, hackache or urinary trouble, no mnt- ter-^how slight.

Washington, Dec' 24.—Secretary Root, to a reasonable certainty, will lie made a member of the' committee on foreign relations when he comes to the Senate as the successor of Senator Piatt of Nw York. In the event of the failure of Senator Foraker to be re-elected, there will be a vacancy on the committee, but If the Ohio senator should come back It Is believed probable that some member of the committee would retire, taking a place on another committee of equal rank, and make a place for the present Secretary of State. Ordinarily a new senator has to con tent himself with unimportant com- mittce appointments. Exceptions to this rul^ happen very rarely unless the member happens to have been a cabinet member with a record of imus- ual efllclcncy in one of the executive departments. In such ln.stanors, there have been established precpdo.:::;, the last being In the case of Mr. Knox, who came ft> the Senate from the Department of Justice. He was given a' seat Immediately as a member of the committee on the Judiciary In recognition TOOK IN $90,000 IN A DAY. IMonday the Biggest Rush Day in New York Street Ca.- History. New York, Dec. 24.—L,ast Monday, the shortest day of the year, made a record for the biggest day's travel In the history of the Interborough Rapid Transit company, said Manager Frank Hedley yesterday. He was testifying before the public service commission on the need for more stations on the elevated lines. He said that 1 ,800.000 persons were carried Monday. This means that 1,800,000 nickels, or $90,000 was taken In my Mr. Ryan's com pany on that day. Christmas shoppers caused the big Increase. The constant dropping water wears away the hardest stone. The constant gnaw of Towser masticates the touRhest bone. The constant wooing lover carries away the blushing maid. And the Constant Advertiser is the man who- gets the trade.

There is a particular reason for placing Secretary Root on the foreign relations committee. Since he became Secretary of State there has been a closer relationship between the State department and the committee than ever before. Whenever matters relating to treaties or diplomatic negotiations were presented to the com mittee. Secretary Root always has been ready to appear and explain the need for the principles outlined and the committee received flrat hand full explanation of any changes made In the foreign policy.
