THREE HAPPY WOMEN. Each Relieved of Periodic Pain and Backache. A Trio of Fervent Letters. CHAKLES A. DANA, one of the most distinguished editorial writers in this country, is dead. He began his newspaper career on a Boston publication at 15 per week. Fifty years ago he was a writer on Horace Greeley's paper, the New York Tribune, at a weekly compensation of $10 per week. The^next year he was sent to Europe as"a" special correspondent and upon his return he became Greeley's principal assistant and his salary Increased to |2,500 per year. Early in the war he was chosen a special commissioner In the war department and later was made assistant secretary of war. President Lincoln was guided largely by bis recommendations. ' After the war he resumed newspaper work. In 1867 he acted as editor of the Republican, an independent newspaper established at Chicago. In 1868 he organized the company which publishes the New York Sun. This he conducted as an indepeadent Democratic journal until last August, when it espoused the cause of Republicanism. Mr. Dana was a man of varied accomplishments. He was intense in tola hatreds. He was radically independent. His inconsistency weakened the force of his writings, Before using- Lydia E.

There is not so much politics borne on Kansas breezes this fall as usually there is. The reason for it may perhaps be gathered from a late news item to the effect that a Kansas farmer had lost a $300 diamond in his wheatfield. When a farmer is making money enough to buy a $300 diamond, he has not time for politics. The wheat crop of the grasshopper state was an immense one.

He will have his financial scheme ready to submit to congress when it convenes ia December. In the meantime Hanna's monetary commission Is In session at Washington and will also try to have something ready to submit to congress when It oonvenos. A tremendous effort will be made to induce congress to make some change in our currency system. A demand will be Biade for the retirement of the greenback currency and it is doubtful if congress consents to such a change. Such a change will necessitate the issuing of a large volume of government bonds. It is doubtful if any plan of currency reform that floes not provide for the free coinage of silver, will be approved by the senate. The next session of congress promises to be an important one. Besides currency legislation there will be the Cuban question, the annexation of Hawaii and railway legislation to be considered. The currency question, however, 's the most Important, as the campaign last stall was waged upon that Issue, and the successful p irty promised the country "sound money." Will Be So ErerjTThere Aft«r While. In a public card, the twelve Democratic candidates for the legislature in Cuyahoga county, (Cleveland.Ohio) declare that "they will not vote or assist in any way In the election for senator of any known monopolist or millionaire." They cite in justification of this declaration the celebrated utterance of the late Governor William Allen, when he expressed these lofty sentiments: ' 'Democracy Is a sentiment not to be appalled.cor- rupted or compromised. It knows no baseness. It cowers to no danger. It oppresses no weakness. FearlesB.gen- erous and humane.it rebukes the arrogant,cherishes honor and sympathizes with the humble. It asks nothing but what it concedes. It concedes nothing but what It demands. Destructive onlf of depotUm, It is the sole con- nerrator of liberty, labor and property. It it the sentiment of the past summer 200,000 beeves fatten ed and prepared for market. The plan is to ship the cattle from the hot regions of the southwest in early summer and finish them off for market on the pastures of cooler Kansas. The scheme has worked profitably both to die Texans and others who rear the calves and to the Kansas grazier who buys them for fattening. One young man cleared $40,000 in sis months in western Kansas by fattening beeves for market. He will not go to the Klondike at present. In one month, August, the Kansas. City stockyards received from Kansas alone 188,960 cartle. The hogs aud sheep marketed at the same yards from Kansas during the same time brought the number of food animals received and sold there for August tip to 809,307. Of course many thousands went to Chicago and other points. The climate of Kansas is such that, with the alfalfa crop which grows so luxuriantly, the food animals need to he housed and fed only two mouths of the year. This gives tho grazier in that locality a great advantage over the stock man farther north. From present indications the God forsaken, mortgage plastered, poverty stricken, droughty region of western Kansas will in the immediate future become ono of the richest sections of this Union. We shall see what effect this will have on the politics of the state. fail'to help Chicago.' Mayors and co'un- cilmen who axe worthy the name learn from each other and from experts what methods are beneficial. The whole field of city government—morality, street lighting, sanitation, public education, ownership of public franchises—comes within the scope of such an organization. A man of 55 who has been looking for employment in almost every walk of life finds that he is refused in every case because he is "too old." He feels and knows he is as capable as he ever was, even physically, but bis gray hair and beard are against him. "He looks too old," they say of him. Every employer wants youth—bright, exultant, hustling youth—about him. Well, this is not so unjust as may seem at first thought. A man. of 55 who is in poverty shows there has been something wrong with his life or he would not be so poor at that age. Either he has been in poor health so that he could not save any money, in which case he would not do, or else he has been so careless and reckless that he has spent all his means. Then, again, most men slump down and get stiff and cranky and old lookin 20 years before they need to do so. The marvelous speed of the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse _has not been -at taiued by the application of any new | principle or mechanical device to steam as a motive power. It is by the fine quality and extra nice adjustment in all its parts of machinery already well 'I ° | understood and in use that the feat was accomplished. On her second -and speedier trip, which beat by 7 hours 25 minutes her own champion western time, it is to be noted that the Kaiser consumed only the same amount of coal per day, 500 tons, as on her previous voyage. One of the greatest century bicycle runs ever achieved was completed on A Pretty Custom Ac*irut WW«H Wub- iof ton Florist* Protest. One of the most pleasing features in official life in Washington is the constant receipt, without cost, of cut flowers from the government gardens. These flowers are furnished at the White House and in all the executive departments almost every day the year round, and not only are the desks of the higher officers made beautiful with the gifts of nature, but they are passed around to the residences not only of the administration, but of congressmen and even of subordinates. The understanding everywhere is that as the flowers are grown in the botanical gardens and conservatories they simply are saved from going to waste by being cut and distributed where they will be most appreciated. This is a pretty custom and has become so general that no one ever thought of complaining about it. But the florists of the city find themselves unable to compete with the government's free flower show, and they have banded together to protest. They have asked the president and the heads of the departments to prohibit the use of government property for private purposes. They do not care about a vase of fresh flowers beiag kept on an official's desk, but they do find fault with the propagation of flowers in hothouses and in the parks and gardens by a special force of men to keep the whole of official Washington supplied/with,bouquets and table ornaments. They also protest against the loan of potted plants for receptions, unless at the departments where they belong. The superintendent of public buildings and grounds- is at a loss to know bow to meet the issue presented by the local flower dealers. If he lets the flowers in the parks aud gardens go to waste, he does not believe that any one will be compelled to purchase more flowers than he now finds it necessary to buy. The government gardens will continue to make these beautiful natural exhibits, and it would seem a shame to let them rot on their stems when they can give so much pleasure by being judiciously scattered. Not only do the officials in the departments and the legislators have the benefit of the government's interest in horticulture, but the hospitals as well are supplied from Uncle Sam's nurseries. As the government plants of the more expensive and rare varieties are never used except at official receptions, and then only by the president and the heads of departments to which they belong, there does not seem to be any more of an abuse in the custom than in the use of carriages and horses by the same officials at government expense. The livery stable men could with more justice protest against the use by the petty officials of government turnouts for social purposes. This objection would have good foundation. There is no earthly reason why any official outside of the president and the members of his cabinet should be supplied with horses and carriages. As it is now gov ernment carriages attend receptions and theaters in the evening and drive housekeepers to market in daytime for the regular supply of meat and vegetables. This is an abuse which ought to be reru edied, but the flowers will grow and fade whether they fire distributed or not. —New York Press. ^. 4 I I n-l I •• — ~ ' «• Embrace the Opportnnity.

Natural and Artificial Gas. an Ammunition. People in the little mountain town oi Sharpsburg, Ky., have a peculiar diver- •sion known as egg throwing. The heaviest battles occur on Saturday night. Jim Strong is the captain of one egg I throwing baud and Bill Eversole is the 1 captain of the other. They have about 20 men each. Each man has to provide himself with a do;-.en eggs, and, of course, it is to his interest to buy them where he can get them the cheapest As no individual expects to be struck by his own eggs, he does not require th dealer to "candle" them. In this waj the dealers in country produce here an able to realize at least cost price on their sickest eggs. Last Saturday night's battle was a glorious one. The moon was shining, and the boys lined tip for the fray about 9 o'clock. Every member of the two companies was present. The captains did not throw, simply directing the movements of their men. Each had his full quota of egga when the battle began. The first volley was thrown by Strong's men, and six men on the Eversole side were struck. Then the Ever- soles began to throw eggs, and at the first volley seven Strong men were marked, and one egg carried away the cap of Captain Strong, Then the throwing became indiscriminate and no attempt at, volley work was made. The sport did not cease until the en All Gas Bills are due the 1st of each month and must be paid on or before the tenth. tire 480 eggs were thrown. Nearly every man had 'been plastered, and the cap tains were regular omelets from head to 1 foot. It was decided that Strong's men won the fight.

These five, a natural and pardonable desire to en-' joy a nleasant recreation trip, but such an impression would be a very mistaken one.
