A Woman's Life Barely Saved by a Critical Operatfon-Her Health Destroyed. .... • There was a burrv call for the ambulance of the City Hospital In the sick young woman was brought in on a. as death and evidently suffering keen agony, ination and a consultation. In 'ess than a quarter of an hour the poor creature was on the operating table to __ ____ undergo the operation called. \iiJ$'j ~" ovariotomy. • ^-<<!/ course ot an hour a very stretcher. She was pale There was a hasty exam IK money can save Haona he will be saved. 'There la no doubtio? the fact that Hanaa is an expert »n the vie of money for election purposes. SILVER m-mey was honest money until dishonest men sought to ruin its character. Silver money may now oe considered dishonest money a&d it has been made so oy those !n authority, who have conspired to debase it and discontinue its coinage. SENATOR WOLCOTT is on his way home from Europe. His mission abroad may be considered a failure. Tbe country will await with interest the report to be submitted to congress by the monetary commission. In the meantime, England's firm stand against silver has encouraged the gold conspirators. THE country will applaud if Hanna is beaten tomorrow. It the Democrats win they must choose a man for senator who has the confidence of the American people. There are many able men among the Ohio Democrats, nable man aqd an honeat one should be chosen to succeed flanni. He should be a man who will represent the people and not the corporations. THE deficit in government revenues for the month of October will reash something like 89,000,000. The gurplua in the treasury is gradually diminishing and if the shortage in revenues continues, a bond sale will be In order. The gold in the treasury exceeds »150,000,000, but this coulc. be quickly drawn out if the golc. speculators found it profitable to do so. CONGRESS meets a month hence, and then we are promised currencv reform. If Secretary Guge has bin way about it, bonds, gold bonds, will be Issued and the greenbacks will bu retired, The bonded debt of the nation will be Increased to the extent of perhaps $500,000,000. It will require •346,000,000 of bonds to redeem the greenbacks. Then there are the treasury notes that must also be provided for. HENRY GEORGE was most popular among the laboring people who study economic questions. His theories of taxation have grown In popular favor year by year. Some peoole bave character!zed George as a socialist. Others, who have never read his works, have classed him as an anarchist. He was neither. Rissole purpose was to establish a system of taxation that would check the concentration of wealth and better the condition of the laboring classes. His tragic deat i will lead thousands who have never read his works to study his theories. THE character of Senator Platt has been exposed to the X rays in the New York campaign. The most •erioua charge made against him is that he extorted 130,000 from the New York Life Insurance company for securing the enactment of laws in the interest of that company. Platt now occupies a place in the highest legislative body of the government as senator from the state of New York. If the charge made by a reputable citizen of New York is true, he is a black-mailer and a corruptionlst ana Is unworthy ot a seat in any legislative body. What confidence can the people have In laws enacted by such men? The great essential to eood government is m having honest men for law makers. The people talk »boui "honest money" while honest men in legislative positions Is what the country needs. Platt and Hanna, dishonest men, walked into the most exalted positions under the banner of "sound money." Fairbanks, another corporation lawyer, who acquired wealth within a rew years, headed the "sound money" procession in Indiana and marched Into the senate. Such are some ot the fruits that the people have gathered from the hypocritical "sound money" campaign of last yeai. There was no time for the usual preparation. Her left ovary was on the point of bursting; when it was removed, it literally disintegrated. L£ it Xhad burst before removal, she would have died almost *~ . stantly! That young woman hadhad warnings enough in the terrible pains, the burning sensation, the swelling low down on her left side. Ko one advised her. .so she suffered tortures and nearly lost her life. I wish I had met her months before, so I could have told her of the virtues of Lydia B. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. As it is now, she is a wreck of a woman. Oh, my sisters, if you will not tell a doctor your troubles, do tell them to a woman who stands ever ready to relieve you! Write to Mrs. Pinkham at Lynn, Mass., confide freely to her all your troubles", and she will advise yon free of charge; and if you have any of the above symptoms" take the advice of Miss Agnes Tracy, who speaks from experience and says: " For three years I had suffered with inflammation of the left ovary, which caused dreadful pains. I was so badly affected that I had to sleep with pillows under my side, and then the pain was so great it was impossible to rest. " Every month I was in bed for two or three days. I took seven bottles of Lydia B. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and am entirely cured. Ithink there is no medicine to be compared with the Compound for female diseases. Every womau who suffers from any form of femalo weakness should try it at once." Miss AGXKS TBAOV, Box 432, Valley City, N. D. GOWNS FOR GIRLS. New Model! — Scotch Field* Lead In Material*. The now models in children's garments are not remarkable for really new and original ideas, but they are very attractive. Scotch plaids seem to have the lead iu materials, and are to be had in a great variety of all wool and silk and wool fabrics. The poplins, too, are •very popular this season, with a great diversity of colors and designs iu the plaids and all the pretty plain colors from which to choose. These, says a writer in the New York Sun, make pretty, dressy gowns for the older girls', and velvet, lace and silk are used in the trimming. Brown and blue, green iind red, are the favorite dark colors and with plain skirts, little bolero jackets of velvet to match, trimmed with a little cream lace or fancy braid, and brightened up by a stock collar of bright plaid silk, the effect is very pretty. Narrow velvet ribbon in black, in the same color as the poplin, is also ! <t + > »4 > «», used for trimming. | SorV Block Corduroy,- velveteen, rep materials ^.1^^,^., and plain cloths and serges, are also employed in the juvenile outfit. Plaids, however, make the most desirable school dresses, as they do not show every particle of dust. The blouse is the prevailing style of bodice for this material, and it is sometimes made with a tucked i voke of plain cashmere which matches ?ome dark color hi the plaid. The skirts are gored jr. front and in pome instances a little at the side, but usually they are cut in straight breadths, r;TVETHEM FITS. That's what you'll get if I make your clothes.

The Creoles of Louisiana might { put in some claim to be the real Amer' icans, as might likewise the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the old time Pennsylvania German.

Those who wear the shoe Know best where it pinches. The agricultural classes have in tbe past suffered most from the shrinkage in prices brought about by tbe witless error of sundering silver from aod subordinating it to gold. Even those who scofl at silver and hue; their gold are short-sighted indeed if they believe that they can permanently prosper while the great producing classes are being impoverished." Ji'\rt-»h Farmers In Palestine. The first historic record of the Jews makes them a pastoral people, tending flocks and herds. This they remained till the destruction of Jerusalem. Then they were scattered to the four corners of the earth and persecuted by Chris- ' England or France. This fuct clearl understood will save- the newcomers a great deal of trouble. In our federal system and our local self government we find the American idea, and it is just as different from the licanso and the socialism which some conceive w bo the American idea as can be. It is useless for foreign newcomers to butt their heads against t&i£ idea; it will injure their heads. Dr. Sheldon Jackson suggests 'that the Klondike miners may keep from starving through the winter by shooting some of the wild reindeer that are now abundant in the Yukon. He says further that if be had been authorized by our government to do so he could by this time have had 150 trained reindeer at St Michael's, where they could be utilized to convey food from the post up the Yukon all winter. Of course it is not possible for one at a distance from the scene of action to judge of things, but it is hard to understand why, when the shortage of supplies in the Klondike ==PATENTS== American and Canadian Patents promptly obtained, Patent, Mechanical and Perspective Drawings prepared, Inventions Developed. B B. QORDON. I have used Bimetallism a Necessity. Edward Tuck, a director of the Chase National bank of Saw York City and a close student of the money question, contributes to the October number of the Forum an article entitled "Bimetallism as a Necessity." Mr. Took has made frequent and extended visits abroad and is familiar with th« feelings of foreign financier*. Besaya: "I» it uadoubtedlj true that the ^ tian -nations. In Europe the fact that for centuries they were forbidden to own land changed the Jewish character apparently and forced them to become a commercial people. Now there seems to be a tendency to round out the circle "of human experiences for tbe race by making many of them at least an agricultural people. In literature, in the professions and in scientific pursuits they have long since taken first rank. Now it only remains for them, to become for the first time in their checkered history farmers. They were driven to the agricultural life once more by persecution, this time the persecution of the Turk and the Russian. Not all the starving Russian Hebrews came to America. There are thousands of them in Palestine, engaged in farming, successfully too. In fact there are already 22 agricultural colonies representing the modern return of the Jews to Palestine. The estimate has been mado that of these Jewish farmers and their families in Palestine there are as many as 6,000, with 100,000 acres under cultivation. Wine growing, silk culture, fruit raising and honey production chiefly engage these Jew fanners who have returned to tho promised land. There is at Yafa, the Joppa of Bible times, actually a Jewish agricultural college which is doing » great work in the education of Hebrew farmers. Its graduates take charge of farm colonies of the men of their race in both Palestine and elsewhere. From the advance made in Palestine it looks as if the wilderness •will indeed blossom as the rose in that dried up land and that the Jews will prove as successful at fanning as they have done at everything else they have attempted. _ __ treat majority ot men, not carefully •tadled the moneUrj question, Incline at tat to the ilde gold monomeUUUm.

Even yet it is difficult to see why there is not time. Jackson says a reindeer can make the round trip from St.Michael'sto Dawson City and back iii four to six weeks, hauling 400 pounds of freight and find itself. The proper way is to have the animals travel in trains of 100 or more, each driver to manage eight deer. In accordance with the referendum vote of the people calling for state ownership of railroads the government of Switzerland will purchase the five principal ones in tbe republic. The solution of the question how much should be paid to the private owners was arrived ac by a consideration of the earnings of the roads. The sum was reached on the basis of 4 per cent as the average interest received by the capitalists who owned the roads. A sum equal to 25 times this amount was set off as the value of the roads, with their equipment Tha pltrase "government by injunction" is superseded by a new one now, "government by syndicata " It means that a syndicate of bankers in almost every civilized country controls the country and that the ostensible rulers have little to say. Government by syndicate is illustrated in the Rothschild rule in Europe. Government by syndicate is also the plan in Honduras, whose custom house and banks are now in the hands of a company representing New York millionaires. There is now more gold money in the United States than there ever was before and more is coming not only from , Europe, but also from Australia. The I •mount »t present is $713,000,000. About $148,000,000 Of this amount is in the United States treasury; the rest in the banks of the country. Nine years •go, Nov. 1, 1SSS, there was more gold in the treasury than at any time before or than there has ever been since. Tbe •mount THUS $191,074,575. Thcrs might be some justification for •nicide if by suicide people really got oat of their troubles. ~" THREE NEW MODELS. all except the front. Plain cloth skirts and coats made tight fitting in the back and loose in front are one of the features of a young girl's wardrobe, and with these she wears a shirt waist of plain bright flannel, cashmere or plaid poplin. Cashmeres in all the light colors are very popular for the dressy gowns to wear at dancing school, and these are trimmed with lace insertion or very simply made with a sash and plaited collar of soft surah or liberty silk of the game color. A little cashmere gown illustrated in the exchange quoted is shirred at the sides of the skirt, around the neck and up the sleeves to the elbow. The wide epaulet collar which has been worn so loug appears on another blouse waist. Cashmere gowns for girls under 10 are made with a guimpe of muslm and lace and trimmed with rows of velvet ribbon to match the cashmere. A bertha of lace or narrow knife plaitings of the material finish the neck. <Jainco Cakes. Prom a German school of cookery oomes a recipe for "quitten brod," or quince cakes, which sounds very tempting to a lover of this golden lined fruit of autumn. Boil the quinces whole, without peeling them, till quite soft; then peel and core them. Work tho pulp through a coarsa sieve. Allow a pound of sugar to a pound of fruit. Moisten the sugar with a little water and boil it until beads form; then put in the fruit and boil this, with constant stirring, to a stiff, smooth jam. Make little trays of white paper, fill them half an inch thick with the fruit and put them to dry in a cool oven or spread the mass out thin on plates and Piso's Cure for Consumption, and can recommend it above all others for Coughs and Colds.

Cut the fruit into any small shajjes. Those dried on paper are re- moTed by dipping the paper into cold water. _ Flavoring Cuke. Etonsewives who wish to excel in cabsrnaking should study flavorings and vary them from time to time. A change of flavor means practically a new sort of cake, and shange is usually accsptable, yet there are people who will adopt the same flavoring year after Yeax and then wonder that their fami- iieii get tired of their cakes. A large number of flavors are available for cakes. Among those most frequently used may be mentioned grated lemon rind, candied peel, chopped kernels, spices, essences, extracts and liquors. The chief point to be careful about is not to use too much of any particular flavor. A celebrated Frenchman used to say that-no coarse minded person could ever be a fine cook, and certainly it takes a refined taste to flavor cake daintily. Fashion Echoes. The real Russian blouse and its many •ntriations are in high favor. Many pretty effects are gained in bouse dresses with blouse waists. The fashionable coiffure • for evening still requires the assistance of jeweled pins and combs. Bows are worn mostl.y in front rather than at the back of collars, with all sorts of necktie ends. Very effective are tbe long chains in which American pearls alternate with little enameled beads of gorgeous color The new wool fabrics are almost as glossy as silk, and many of them are mixed with silk in stripes and checks, which makes them very rich in effect- Vests of all sorts, plain and full, arc being iati-oduced into the fronts of gowns, .but those that are much embroidered evidently have the pref ereace- The Bussian blouse craze has given ft tremendous fcoom Jo jeweled girdles, belts and buckles.
