THE Kentucky legislature will be Democratic in botn branches by decisive majorities^ ^ j DR. HUNTER, who figured 60 conspicuously in the contest for the Kentucky senatorship, has been given » foreign appointment by Present, McKlnley and he will soon leave the country. COMPTROLLER ECKELS"has been tendered the presidency of one of the leading bauks in Chicago. He is a very smart young man and will get his reward for advocating the single gold standard. THE new comniander-ln-chief In Cuba finds that 130,000 ot the 200,000 Spanish troops sent over have died, deserted or been disabled. Yet Weyler insisted that he was In good shape to crush the insurrection. IT is altogether probable that Congressman Steele will not be renomi- nated by tbe Bepublicans of the Eleventh district. Major Steele Is a wily politician, but in the distribution of patronage he has made many serious blunders. The district Is hopelessly Republican, which will tend to encourage a multiplicity of candidates. SENATOR WOLCOTT refuses to say anything concerning the work accomplished by the monetary commission. A report will be made to congress when it convenes next month. The report may have much to do with the enactment of financial legislation. Although a sincere bimetallist, Wolcott supported McKinley. The stand that he may take on currency legislation will be awaited with great Interest. THE :report comes from Europe that China is to adopt the gold standard. If this should prove true, gold will soar upwards and there will be a corresponding decline In silver. It will still,.further advance the success of that conspiracy which Carlisle predicted would be equivalent to destroying one-half of the movable property ol the world. Back of tbe conspiracy are the money kings of the world. Slash.

The seat of health is strength and vigor of nerves and punty.of blood. Dr. Greene's Nervura acts directly upon both blood and nerves, and is the great health renew- er. Exhaustion, dyspepsia, melancholy, insomnia and other miseries of mankind almost invariably arise from nerve and ^_. blood derangements, and are promptly and radically relieved by Dr. Greene's Nervura.

The plain fact is that there is not an atom of real love in this poisoned state of mind. It is slush, pure slush. Whether the object of the true affection is near at hand or 1,000 miles away is all one. True love is its own reward and cares only for the happiness of the beloved object, not for ownership of it. It is slush that makes respectable •white girls elope with negroes and circus performers. It is also slush that makes them want to kill themselves or somebody eke because of disappointment in "love." If the silly things had some sound, wholesome work in which ican contract laborers are wonting it) the mines of British Columbia. The United States Immigration laws, it is asserted, are administered with hnrshness along the Canadian border, a^d are a daily source of irritation. Sir \VHfrid, therefore, will suggest that the causes of irritation be removed on both sides. In this connection, also, the co-operation of the United States is desired in plans of the Canadian authorities to make an easy route to the Klondike. The proposed route is by boat from Fort .Wrangle to the Styckc-ne river, which is in territory belonging to the United States, and up the Styoker.e via Tasland lake to the Yukon river, and thence to the gold fields. AstheStyckene river is on American soil it is d'.-sived to overcome any possible controversy, although the treaty cf Washington is said to make the navigation oE the river free to the Canadians and America:,? alike.

When a man who wants an office professes the greatest interest in the welfare of the people, when he expresses the warmest feelings of friendship for them and their families, when he tells you he knows a cure for the old man's rheumatism or asthma, it is slush, invariably slush. When there is an apparent great religious revival in a neighborhood, when toughened sinners are moved to shout and cavort about and shed tears and embrace around generally and after the excitement is over settle back agaiu in exactly the old tracks, it shows there was no religion at all in their minds, only slash. When robust, full grown women profess extreme sensibility to suffering and cry over a sick dog or scream and faint when somebody says the house is on fire, it is the same, just the same, slush, and slush only. When a man cheats and robs and skins other people in order that he may secure every luxury for his family under pretense of piously providing for his own household, it is the wickedest kind of slush. In truth, fully half of what passes in the world for honest, normal, warm human sentiment is slush, nothing but slush. JUDGE VANWYCK, tbe newly elected mayor of New York City, is described by those who know him Intimately as a good liver—enjoys a good dinner, a good cigar and good company, He hasn't taken a drink in fifteen years. At a first meeting he might Impress one as being orusquj and short in his manner, but those who know him best describe him as whole-souled and generous to a fault. He has a Quick, well-stored mind and since his majority has been a hard student. Despite tbe fact that he made no speeches In the recent campaign, he is a fluent, clear speaker and exceedingly forcible. THE London Spectator says "the •liver specter is not, laid. The tremendous fall In the metal, which Is now not worth half its traditional price of 60d an ounce, has affected the whole world, has roused immense interests to something very like passion, and has, as a single detail, made the government of India, that Is, of one-fifth of the human race, upon the old lines very nearly impossible. You have to work the gigantic machine with half the old supply of oil, and though you can w«,ter oil a little, you take away its lubricating power. What with America, and India, and the Latin Union, and the real difficulties of working a currency in which one metal fluctuates in value every morning, the pressure on monomelallist governments is very severe." CHATJXCEY. I. FILLET, of St. Louis, one of the Republican leaders in Missouri, comes out vigorously against the election of Mark Hanna to the senate. Fllley says: "Hanna has made himself persona non grata with the Republican masses, not alone in Ohio, but throughout the country. He will begin to realize it, if permitted by his excessively enlarged opinion of himself, obtained throughout the extraordinary campaign of 1886, in which he supposed himself 'the chief Mtar tnd promoter, when ;th« scare the country had would liate oarred the election if there had nover been a Hanna. It was one ol those things that the uprising of the i»opl!e ac- but DOW the/ are up- against Hanna,as the elections in Oblo and Nebraska and other states sbow. •You ask if Ohio and other lessons will give a Democratic majority in the next congress. I have no doubt that it will and that unless Hanna Is rooted out or tbe policy and action of the party that it will bring defeat in 1900. It is better to look danger and facts in the face now than to have Minneapolis repeated in 1900. We have no use for Mark Hanna in national or local politics. Oblo proves it, however galling it must be to its pride." In her paper on divorce :in the United States iu Tho Contemporary Review Gertrude Athertou presents a juxtaposition of figures which is at least ingenious. She finds, that New York is the state of the Union in which a divorce is procured with the greatest difficulty, and 3S T ew York is at the same time the most immoral state in the Union. In South Carolina no divorce is allowed at all, and in South Carolina more people go crazy in proportion to the population ilian. in any other state, Only the president of the United States will be a bigger man,than the mayor of Cheater New York. No governor of any state will wield such power. The consolidated city will have 245 different public departments and there ba S3,000 names on the municipal pay rolls. To let this vast machinery of government be handled in the private interests of any person or persons or of any mere petty political clique is a crime against civilization and republican government. Pennsylvania has at last apparently found otit that there was once a man named William Penn who was benefactor to the stata Accordingly the anniversary of his brown and red leaved birthday each Oct. 14 will hereafter be celebrated with eclat by the state's public school children. In the United States navy there are now 141 vessels of ail kinds, cruisers, battleships, gunboats and torpedo boats. ^e' navy is deficient in torpedo boats. "Beautiful evil! Heroic villainy I Thev have no existence save in the imagination of the poet and the romancer. In real life they are impossibilities," says Edward C. Jackson. Just so. In Europe Henry George was consid ered the greatest thinker on economic question* that America has produced. It is time to end the war in Cuba. General Sherman declared that war is hell, but the policy pursued by Weyler in Cuba, even against the innocent, deserves a strouger word than that, if there were a stronger in any language. The most cruel order of those issued by Weyler was not directed at'all agaiust the insurgents, but against the rural pacificos, those friendly to Spain or at least altogether neutral in the contest. They resided on their farms and tilled their lands so far as they were able to do so in the intervals of raidings by both sides. Weyler argued that these peaceful farmers would be raided and robbed oftener by the insurgents than by his own troops, thus paying unconsciously a high compliment to the superior energy aud activity of the rebels. The grain and live stock of the farmers would, therefore, in Weyler's 'judgment do more good to rebel troops than to Spanish. He decided that rather than this should happen he would not permit the grain and live stock to be produced ac all So he issued an order that the rustic pacificos should be driven from their farms into the Cuban villages still -belonging to Spain. Into the villages the hapless families were therefore forced by soldiers, and there they havt been starving ever since. Sickness has broken out among them in consequence of the hunger, and in Havana and elsewhere they are dying by the hundred. &uch is Spain's way of waging war. We have seen a picture of Air. Heury Savage Land or, the London Daily Mail's correspondent who attempted to travel through Tibet disguised as a Chinese pilgrim. The picture represented him in his Chinese dress. After seeing that one understands his failure. No Chinaman, pilgrim or laundryinan, ever car ried in front of him such a vast stuiii • ach as that with which Landor cried ti: get into Tibet. It could only belou;,' to the hated and despised outlanrier from Europe. There was no disguising it. and it was a dead give away.

On the matter of reciprocity cne general purpose of the negotiation will be to give the United States the benefit of the minimum clause of the present Canadian law in exchange for thf- 20 per :ent. reduction allowed under the Dingley law. On the part of Canada the articles likely to be proposed for reciprocity are fish, coal, lumber and barley. On the part of the United States the articles likely to figure in the negotiations are-coal, coal oil, corn, railway ana electrical supplies, machinery of all kinds, agricultural implements, native woods, watches, clocks, cotton, and certain forms of iron and steel.

It has been known to the officials here that the Canadian premier comes to Washington desirous of adopting a plar, once proposed by Elaine, that of lun-ping the controversies into one general settlement, the details to be settled by a commission representing both courtnes.

Columbus, O.. Nov. 9.—Contempt proceedings! were brought in the supreme court yesterday afternoon by Attorney General Monett against the Standard Oil company. It is claimed the company ha? not abided by the Decision of the supreme court of MarcSi 2, 1S92, in the case of the state ex rel. D. Watson,, attorney general, vs. the Standard Oil. It was charged in that suit that a trust known as the Standard Oil trust had been formed. The supreme court held that the alleged trust was in conflict with the laws of the state and could not be maintained. In the "information" filed by the attorney general yesterday it is charged that the trust has not been dissolved, but that under a pretense of winding up its affairs the trust has arranged to continue indefinitely. The information upon which the contempt proceedings are begun was furnished by George B. Rice, of Marietta, who is represented by W. L. Fla.es, of New York, and E. B. Kinkead. of Columbus. Today the supreme court will fix the date on which the Standard Oil company shall be cited to appear in court to answer the charge that it has ignored the decision of the court. CRIME~TO PLAY FOOT BALL In Georgia, Provided You I'Uiy It VThert an Admission Fee Is Charged. Atlanta, Ga.. Nov. 9.—Without one word of discussion the house of representatives by a vote of 91 to 3 yesterday passed the anti-foot ball bill, an-d it is now on its way to the senate. This remarkable result was anticipated notwithstanding the warm opposition of the State university, which after recovering from the shock of Student Von Gammon's death tried to stem the tide of opposition in order to save the game. A powerful card was played by an appeal to. the mother of the dead student, to which she responded by calling on the legislature riot to prohibit a game which her son had loved so well. "I approve," she said, "of foot ball aa a college game to develop those who would otherwise lose all interest in athletics." The bill as passed provides that it shall be unlawful for any person or persons to come together and play a prize or match game of foot ball in any park other place in the state where a fee is charged ft>r admission to the game.

Dry chamois skin shcrald never be nsed on varnished work If the varnish is defaced and shows white marks, apply linseed oil and turpentine with a soft rag till the color comes back; then wipe the mixture entirely off with a clean, soft dry :rag. The oil and turpentine should be used in equal quantities and shaken well in a bottle before using. In deeply carved work use a stiff paint brush instead of a sponge. In varnishing old furniture, rub it first with powdered pumice stone and •water to remove the old varnish, and then, with an elastic bristle brush, apply varnish made of the oonsiBtency of cream by the addition of turpentine.— Decoraiwr and Fnrnifiher. •t W«Orfn*-"If I to* Hungry tttak « wbtt" jtm tei The North Walk flystery BY WILL N.
