To ascertain the feeling of the citizens In regard to ihe project of con- i^tructlng an electric railway to Burlington, a public meeting will be held tt the new court room tonight. Thl3 gieeting will demonstrate whether or not It is desirable at this time to set the project OQ foot. To succeed, the undertaking must have the support of our public spirited citizens after toeing convinced of the desirability of holding the trade of the rich country to the soutb of us. THE turks are marching to the Blabghter pens or America. 'Tie the Thanksgiving season and a well fatted turkey, roasted with ordinary care and served with other good things, makes a dinner that the most ungrateful being will partake of with some manifestations of thankfulness. ._ IF our currency system Is in a demoralized condition, who put it in •uch shape? President Harrison, in tots last message to congress In De•ember, 1892, attributed the good time* that prevailed at the close of tola administration to the passage of the Shermau silver purchasing law. Speaker Reed, in a speech delivered In this city in 1890, said that the silver purchasing law provided for a large Increase In the volume of money and that It would stimulate all kinds of business. greatest America observa- THOXA.S JBTFEKSON, the man in many respects that Has produced, made these tlon§ In regard to Cuba: "I have ever looked on Cuba as the most Interesting addition which aould be made to our system of states." "Cuba can toe defended by us without a navy. This develops the principle which ought to limit our views. Nothing should ever be accepted which would require a navy to defend it," While Jeflerson favored the acquisition of Cuba, be would if living today oppose the annexation of Hawaii for the reason that it will require a navy to defend it. WISE WOJflJEJK. those Who Head the First Symptoms of Nervous Derangement. Special from Mrs. Pinltham. A dull, aching pain at the lower part of the back and a sensation of little rills of heat, or chills running down the spine, .are symptoms of general womb derangement. If these symptoms are uot accompanied by leucor- rhcea, they precursors of that weakness. It is worse than folly to neglect these symptoms. Any woman of common sense will take steps to cure herself. She will realize th?.t. her generative system , is in need of help, and that a good restorative medicine i* a positive necessity. It must be a medicine with specific virtues. As a friend, a woman friend, let me advise the use of Lydia B Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. If your case has progressed so that » troublesome discharge is already established, do not delay, take the Vegetable Compound at once, so as to tone up your whole nervous system; you can get it at any reliable drug store. You ought also to use a local application, or else the corrosive discharge will set up an inflammation and hardening of the parts. Mrs. Pinkham's Sanative Wash is put up in packets at 25 cents each. To relieve this painful condition this Sanative Wash is worth Its weight in gold. MBS. GEORGE W. SHEPABP,Watervliet, f. Y., says: " I am glad to state that am cured from the worst form of female weakness.- I was troubled very much with leucorrhcea, bearing-down ains and backache. Before using "tlrs. Pinkham's Bemedies it seemed hat I had no strength at all. I was „ pain all over. I began to feel better f ter taking the first dose of Vegetable x>mpound. I have used five bottles, nd I feel like a new woman. I know ! other suffering women would only jy it, it would help them." t. Louis platform. It is asserted hat Clark, Carter, Shoup, Warren ad Wolcott would vote for silver olnage again at the first opportunity, hlle Pritchard, Perkins, Wilson and Hans&rough might vote with their arty. It is asserted, however, that 11 nine would vote against gold onds without hesitation. MOKE attention will be ejtven to President McK.nley's recommendations on ^he currency question than any other feature of his forthcoming message. He will outline the policy of the administration In relation to the issue upon which the campaign of last year was conducted. Within the past few years he has ttated in public addresses In and out of congress that he favored "the free coinage of all the silver mined m the United States;" that he "would give illver equal credit with gold," and that he "wanted the dcuDle standard ." A man that holds these views •hould be able to make some recommendations to congress on r,he line of securing what he desires. But it 18 probable that President McKinley under pressure has changed his vlewi in regard to according silver its for mer rights as a money metal. An Autt-tfold Senate. The New York World has made i eanvass of the senate upon which i bases the prediction that neithe Secretary Gage's financial plan nor toy other which provides 'or bonds payable specifically in gold instead of coin can secure a majority of tha body. Taking as a basis the record of the senate early in 1896 on the bil authorizing the Issue of coin bonds and certificates of indebtedness and making estimates of new members it appears that a free coinage measur would pass the senate by a vote of 46 to 43. The yeas would be made up o twenty-five Democrats, nine Republi cans, six silver republicans and six silver Democrats. Trie nays woul itaow thirty-four Republicans and nine Democrats. The nine Demo •rats who voted against free sllve were Caflrey, Faulkner, Gorman Gray, Lindsay, Mills, Mitchell Murphy and Smith. Of these Fault ner, Gorman, Mills, Mitchell an Murphy accepted the Chicago plat form. "This would leave tnly Caff rev Gray, Lindsay and Smith, who, wit the thirty-four Republicans, woul make a total of only thirty-eiijh •eoators who are to be relied upon t TOto against free silver. Of tha forty-six counted for on the basis of the vote of 1896 there were nine Republicans- Carter Clark, Hansbrough, Perkins, Pritch ard, Shape, Warren, Wilson and Wo •olt, who voted tor free 1 'coinage an *ubseq*ently remained loyal to th the Ru rails t. AH people enjoy being humbugged, apparently the hard beaded, practical farmer better than anybody else. He likes to hear 'of eitraordinary new vegetable growths that will make him a fortune in a year or two without any more culture than planting the seed- He niipht know from his common sense, however, that when the story of some new plant or grain reads like a fairy tale it is a hum bug. Such stories originate in two ways. In the one case they emanace from the brain of the space writer for the newspaper, a person who will concoct any lie, however, impossible, for the sake of getting his $3 or $5 a column. In the other case the fake story comes from unscrupulous seedsmen and seed agents who want to trap the agriculturist into buying their stuff, kiitle they care whether the thing grows at all or if it does grow whether it may not be a noxious weed that will be a pest to the universe. It is a pity that among so many honest and worthy seedsmen there are some of that kind. One of the fake stones that want the rounds was about the totunes J^ be Moccas ; ns worth 50c for IOC made in chili peppers.

Then there is the Idaho pea, no doubt extremely useful in its way. but it will not grow everywhere, and it will not do all that is claimed for it. Time after time the farmer' has been trapped with machines, with chemical preparations and with plants only co Kenneth Quarries. The development of the limestone uarries at. Kenneth has been a etriment ruther than - a leneflc to this county. It is rue that employment has been iven to a number of people. Bat be population is not a valuable ac- ession. Io is the same kind of law- sss, riotous population found in the mining districts of Pennsylvania. ?he people at these quarries do not ive as Americans, That they be- ortg to the rough element is videnced by the constant brawls hat, occur In that vicinity. Murderous assaults are frequent. The methods of living at the' quar- les are hardly civilized. Old Dox ara are used for places cf habitation. There are but few married men among those employed there. It is migratory population. Does the situation down there arise from a desire to secure the cheapest kind of labor? It would seem that by this time-the proprietors might have secured a stable population—a Dopulation that would be a credit to an industrial institution of such magnitude It seems to have grown worse instead of better. There would be no trouble In securing men who support families te man these works. In justice to an orderly, well regulated community the proprietors ought to adopt such a policy. find when his money has been spent that if one wishes to be successful there is nothing like pegging away at the •work immediately under 'your nose, at the same time watching every opportunity of bettering yourself that comes yonr way. __ aj^Bsiwrflcin is the order of the day. It IB the s'gn of the times. Those whose interests lie along the same path are uniting everywhere. They consult together; they form clubs; they hold con : ventions, at which measures are taken to strengthen the bond of union and to forward the interests of all the members as of one man. The solidarity of the raoe is showing itself. The original truth that all mankind are brethren and that the good of one and the good of all is identical shines sun clear as the nineteenth century vanishes and the twentieth steps upon the scene with its glad young face and elastic step. Surely this universal tendency to organization among men and women is the foreshadowing of better things to corae, the jortent of that time when all mankind, rich and poor, will be organized into one great union, the interests of whose members will be the same.

Wherever plenty of water is there electric light, heat and power oan be generated, whether there be any great quantity of coal or other fuel or not. A waterfall will turn machinery any where, and the machinery will run a dy namo. This use of water power is no- extensively made in Central and South America and Mexico, likewise in some of our southern states. In Alaska an< on the land route to the goldfields the rapidis of the great Yukon and its tributaries might speedily be utilized to run electric cars and supply power and light as well as heat.

An American who thinks England as » country is greatly superior to ;the United States onght certainly go to England and stay there. This country i» not suited to him. Heart troubles, at least among Americans, are certainly Increasing and while this may be largely due to the excitement and worry of American business life, it Is more often the result of weak stomachs, of poor digestion. Real, organic heart disease is Incurable; but not one case In a hundred of heart trouble, Is organic. The close relation between heart trouble and poor digestion Is be- C4U36 both organs are controlled by branches of the same great nerves, the sympathetic and pneumogastric. In another way, aiso the heart is affected by that form of poor digestion, which causes.gas and fermentation from half digested food: there is a feeling of oppression and heaviness in the chest caused by pressure of the distended stomach on the heart and lungs, interfering with thetr action; hence arises palpitation and short breath. .Poor digestion also poisons the blood, makes it thin and watery, which irritates and weakens the heart. ' The most sensible treatment for heart troubles is to improve the digestion and to insure the prompt assimilation of food. This can best be done by the regular use, after meals, of some sate, pleasant and effective digestive preparation, like Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, which may be foun* at most drug stores and which contain valuable, harmlessjdlgestive elements, in a pleasant, convenient torm. It is safe to say that the regular, persistent use of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets at meal time will core any form of stomach trouble, except cancer of thef stomach.

DE ARMIT IS AHEAD, SO FAR, In the C.TW Where His Bid for Co:il at 1'ittsburij lV:is Rejected. Pittsburg, Nov. 22.— The preliminary injunction secured by the New York I and Cleveland Gas Coal company against the city of Pittsburg for the rejection by councils of the company's bid for furnishing fuel was continued by Judge White, of the county court;. The opinion says that the committee of the councils made no investigation but simply listened to the labor leaders, who as the evidence showed were influenced by a spirit of revenge toward the coal company, or its president. William P. BeArmit, because of the failure last summer during the strike by intimidation and unlawful means to induce 'the miners in the mines of the company to quit work and thus break down their business. __ __ Indianapolis 3-Cent-F»re Case. Chicago, Nov. 22.— The question of the jurisdiction of the United States court of appeals in the Indianapolis 3-cent car fare case was argued Saturday before Judges Woods, Jenkins and Bunn, of that court. Former Attorney General Miller represented the street car interests, General Harrison, his partner, not appearing in these proceedings, and City Attorney John W. Kern appeared for the city of Indianapolis. The court of appeals took the matter under advisement, but will probably not hand down an opinion before January. Illinois Care of Feeble-Minded. Springfield, Ills., Nov. 22.— At the Illinois conference of charities at Jacksonville a resolution was passed asking that at the earliest possible date adequate additional provisions be made by the state for the care of feebte-mmaed children, as the asylum for the feebleminded at Lincoln is over crowded and there are 1,200 applications for admission that cannot be considered.
