Thomas Taggart was re-elected mayor of Indianapolis yesterday, defeating Newton Harding, the Republican candidate, by nearly 5,000 •votes. The entire Democratic city ticket was also elected by large majorities. The Democrats elected six counellmen-at-lttrfte and a majority of the other fifteen 'councilmeo, giving them full and complete control of all departments of the city government. Considering the tact that Indianapolis gave McKinley nearly 7,000 majority last fall, the Democratic victory is a great one, Mr, Taggart has made an excellent mayor for the Capltai;City. He has shown executive abilities of a 'high order. His administration has been a progressive one and Indianapolis has forged to the front with wonderful celerity. Mr. Taggart has been at the head of every enterprise that promised good to the city. The result of the Indianapolis election with that of Evansville a Tew months ago, Indicates quite clearly that a Democratic victory may be anticipated at the next state election. The troubles of the Republican party have just begun. The passage of the trust protecting Dingley tariff, has alienated thousands of voters who have been forced to contribute to the sugar trust and other robbing combinations. Arid then the McKinleyites promised to reform the currency and as yet have done nothing. In Indiana they elected a millionaire railway lawyer for senator, and over in Ohio they are threatening to serd another corporation lobbyist to the senate. la the meantime the anarchistic farmers and laboring people who voted for Bryan are working right along and are adding wealth and glory to tha nation. What a misfortune it would have been to Indiana had one of these anarchists been elected senator from Indiana Instead of a millionaire corporation lawyer! And whafi a misfortune it would be for Ohio, should some Bryan anarchist succeed that great corruptionist, Mark Banna, as senator. ^ MAYOR TAGGART was elected on a free-silver platform. The mayor is a man whose sympathies are with the common people.

AND Benjamin^Harrison did not come home to vote for Harding. Harding was beaten 4,000. Senator Fairbanks stayed over in Ohio making speeches for Boss Hanna. He wrote a letter favoring the election of Harding and saying that Taggart's defeat would be a Tlctoiy for "sound " My wife," writes a fond husband, " looks ten years younger since she began to take Dr. Greene's Nervura. She was in a terrible condition. She began to be nervous several years ago. I did not notice it at first, but she gradually grew worse. After a littls she could not sleep. She lost her appetite. Then she became irritable and morose, and from the sweetest and best tempered woman in the world she became shrewish, and hysterical. Finally she 'began to fade away. You know there is a. difference between women who grow old naturally and women who fade out from the effects pf disease, I think I am as devoted and patient as any husband, but I must confess that my wife's unfortunate condition was a sore trial. I do not know what would have become of us if things had gone on as they were. The change for the better came suddenly. There was a complete transformation within a few days. Sound sleep and a hearty appetite came as nervousness and irritability went. I did not know what the matter was until she told me that she had been impressed by the sincerity and common sense of Dr. Greene's advertisements, and had been taking his Nerv- nra. From misery and despondency she is now the happiest person in the world, with the possible exception of myself." Dr. Greene's Nervura, THE GREAT BLOOD AND NERVE REMEDY, Is the great health, restorer. To suffering womankind it is a priceless blessing. How sad is the sight of a fading woman! Who has not seen the sparkling eyes lose their lustre, the roses and lilies fade from the cheeks, and elasticity of step and gracefulness of figure give way to repulsive haggishness ! With departing beauty go sweetness of temper and charm of speech, and nothing is left of the sufferer but the ghastly contrast with, her former self. The world •would be gloomy indeed were there no light in this dark picture. Nature is forgiving. In Dr. Greene's Nervura she has founded a means by which women may regain their lost health and beauty and assume their rightful positions in the spheres in which they move, as both ornaments and inspirations. Dr. Greene's Nervura acts directly •upon the nerves and blood, which are the life.* Exhaustion, irritability and moroseness are banished, and the circulation is strengthened and punned BELDUPlNDAYLlfiHT Concluded from 1st Patre Dr Greene's remedies, 140 OIHLC ou, ^^ s », 111., is open to you, and skilled physicians are at your service with consultation, ezamiuation and advice absolutely free, personally or by letter. _^____^_^____ office who do not acknowledge any responsibility to the public.

A TRAVELING man who visits many cities says that Indianapolis hasj made the greatest improvements in, the streets and manner in which they are kept of any city he visits. Continuing, he says that "the first thing that sbows the quality of a municipal administration is the streets of the city. If they are in good repair and are kept clean, it is a sign that a good administration is in charge." THE sllverites have at last weakened, in the face of the rapid depreciation in the value of their metal.— Journal. If bbis be true, why don't McKinley send word to his silver commission to return home? Silver will continue to decline as long as the gold conspirators have their way. Let us wait and see what will be done for sound money at the next session ol congress. THETIE is a strong probability that many colored voters in the northern states will hereafter refuse to vnte the Republican ticket. The solid colored vote in the border states of Ohio, Indiana and Illinois is the sole reliance of the Republican party for success. A majority of the white voters of each of these three states are Democrats. If the colored voters should break away from the Republican party it would be in a hopeless minority. As the country pets away from the war period the colored voters begin to show more independence. They begin to appreciate their power. They begin to wonder why their services to the party to which they give their votes meet with no recognition. McKlnley has shown no favors to the colored race. Is it any wonder that they threaten to break away from the g. o. p? In Ohio and Kentucky they ara in reTolt. In li- dlanapolis yesterday it IB claimed that at leait 30 per cent of the colored Yoters- of that city Toted for Old Ironsides. If the average American citizen, even he of long descent, were asked to give at the moment a sketch of the history and services of the famous old ship Constitution, the chances are a hundred to one that he could not do it. Not one in a hundred of our recent college graduates could do it. Perhaps a third of the ' bright, patriotic girls and boys of the I United States history grade in our public schools might remember it. We''have'wen seenia-a-New York paper which prides itself on giving the correct European news to its readers the statement that the words "Don't give up the ship!" were spoken on the -deck of the Constitution, although Commodore Lawrence, who said them when he was dying on board the Chesapeake, never commanded the Constitution in his life. The history of the brave old Constitution would make a book in itself, a volume that would include the story of the American navy from 1798 to 1815, when the war with England that began In 1812 closed. Oct. 21 will be celebrated in Boston the one hundredth anniversary of the launching of the Constitution. Beginning in 1803 the Constitution was engaged till the latter part of 1805 in punishing the pirates who preyed on American merchant vessels along the north African coasts. She made yet more brilliant history in the war of IS 12. It is not flattering to the American nation that at the be ginning of the war of 1812 President Madison and his cabinet were so afraid of England that they wanted to bring »11 the ships of our little navy into a place of safety and tie them up where tth'e British could not capture them. These were fine defenders of the American coasts I Captain Bainhridge and Captain Stewart, however, both of •whom afterward successively commanded the Constitution, visited President Madison and. made such energetic protest-against this timid policy that it was reversed and the Constitution was sent out among other vessels to grapple •with the enemy.

The sheriff has sent in a message to the effect that he has struck the trail of two of the robbers. The scene of the hold-up is a famous one for train robberies. thr=e having occurred there within a few years.

BOIES FOR THE WINDGM PLAN. Would Have Bullion, Silver and Gold, a* tlie Currency llusis. Des Homes, la., Oct. 13.—Ex-Governor Boies has written a letter to The Leader upon the subject, "Bullion as a Basis of National Currency." At the outset he asks the question, "Gold ar.d silver bul lion for money: is it practicable? Can they be made an invariable double standard for the measurement of values'" He answers these questions in the affirmative, and'says that Mr. Windom suggested the basis of the plan vrhich he elaborates. He concludes his letter thus: "It is said no plan of that character would be in accord with the Chicago platform. That is true. But the Chicago platform has- had its day in court before the tribunal of last resort. Must Democrats to be loyal adhere to it forever? The objection is at variance -with the whole theory of our form of government.

That CliicuRo Hostlery Being at the Time Supported on Jack Screws. Chicago, Oct. 13.—At 1:20 this morning fire broke out in the Sherman House, one of the largest hotels in the city, and although all the guests and servants escaped without loss of life there was for a time the liveliest kind of panic among them. The fire originated in the kitchen from a g-as stove, and spread with great rapidity. The hotel is now In the course of being remodeled, the entire building being supported by jack screws. Ir. a. few minutes the entire building was filled with a denso smoke, and the attaches of the hotel were hurrying through the halls calling on the guests to leave. There was a wild rush for the street, and in a few minutes all were safely out. The firemen were compelled to carry several servant girls down two flights of stairs until they could secure a passageway to the street. Although for the time the fire looked dangerous it was confined to the builidng with a loss of $10.000. Does the Punishment Fit the Crime? Wausaukee, Wis., Oct. 13. — Konrad Rief, a farm hand, was sentenced to six months in the county jail for shooting at several persons in this town. Eief was at the home of John Hoff, a well-known farmer, and became jealous of William Pettley, who was paying attentions to Miss Josephine Gardr.cr, the servant. Pettley called at the house, but when Rief appeared he shut the door in his face. The jealous man then began firing a revolver through the door, but did no damage. He reloaded and shot into the ceiling and scared everyone in the house. Mr. Hof£ finally appeared and overpowered Rief, who was taken to jail. - _ Officers of the Strawboard Trust.

These small heads are termed "sprouts." The vegetable originated in Belgium and has been cultivated extensively around Brussels since the Uilrteenth century. Requires the same treatment as cabbage. Soil must be rich. Requires considerable moisture. The small sprouts must grow rapidly or they will be tough. Sow seed in hot 1 and trasplant, or scatter seed IB hills aud thin. Plants must hare plenty of room. Rows should he Uir- ty inches apart and the plants not closer than two feet. Ordinary culture will suffice.
