Entered at the Logansport, Ind.,postofflce as »econo clasp mail matter, 86 provided by law. THE president will submit his annual message to congress next Monday. We snail isoon know whether •r not he favors the establishment of the permanent gold standard. ANOTHER oauk president has just been sentenced to the penitentiary. His name is Spaldlng and be was president of a Chicago bank. In China a bank wrecker is promptly beheaded. INDIANA has an anti trust law and It is claimed that if its provisions were enforced, the Standard Oil company could oe driven out of the state and the wanton waste of gag stopped. The representatives of this great trust are ibe ones who are playing katoc with the gas supply. THE administration seems to be drifting away from the moorings of •arrency reform. This will indeed be a sore disappointmsnt to the gold •onsplrators who have remained con- ident in the hope that vast quantities ofjlgold bonds would be issued «oon. Be prepared for a gold raid if their demands are not adhered to. IT is pretty well understood that Attorney General McKenna will sue- •eed Justice Stephen J. Field on the I*preme bench. McKenna has long fceen associated wioh the Pacific rall- wiy managers us their western attor- mey. His selection for associatejus- tlce of the Supreme Court will place another corporation lawyer on the Jipreme bench THE matter o: checking the waste •f gas is a very serious one for it in- TolTes the right of individuals to control their own property. If the men •who own the land in the gas belt persist in leasing to oil operators, how «an the law be Invoked to prevent them from doing so? Property rights are therefore involved in the contro- Tersy, Property owners generally put their property to that use which •rings the largest income for the smallest outlay. It is the general belief that with the exhaustion of gas, the gas belt will be changed into a great oil field. The men who hold oil leases are anxious to see the gas exhausted and their anxiety shared by the land owners who ex pect better returns from oil produc lion than from gas leases. is SENATOK FAIRBANKS has taken to the woods as as a currency reformer. In an interview since reaching Washington he said: "1 find that my people cannot be •rought to see just what is to be gained by converting a non-interest- bearing debt of $350,000.000 Into an interest-bearing debt of the same amount for the sole purpose oC sub- •titutlng one kind of paper for another, Just at the present time the people are certainly not prepared to part with, their greenback currency." Here is a great "sound money" statesmen whom the people have convinced that currency reform on the lines proposed by Banker Gage is not desirable at this time. We learn that such ardent "sound money" advocates as Senators Allison and Cul- lorn share his views. THE president is said to object to issuing bonds expressly payable in gold for two reasons: First, oecause the passage of a law nialclng 1 one class •f bonds expressly payable in gold would imply that other bouds which are expressly payable in "coin" are are not payable in gold coin. The effect of such legislation would be to impair the value of all existing bonds, Second, because the creation of a gold bond would place this country In a position where, it could not possibly ask other countries to join in a bimetallic agreement. We L hope the president can not te driven from this position. The purpose of the gold conspirators is to force the government to change the terms of a contract In the interest of bond-holders. As yet the people who must pay the national debt have •ot agreed to pay in gold. And their representatives In Congress have no right to change the terms of the contract without their consent. Two Views, Representative Shideler of Grant •ounty says that Congressman Steele will be renominated. He says Steele will get considerable strength out of Gass and Huutlngton counties and this witb the thirty-four votes in •rant county, will, of course, keep kirn la the top row. He also says "that •teele is a candidate for the Waited States senate, but he will ask for a return to congress first. If he is •ominated and thus shows his strengthen his own district he will than, I beliefe, begin trimming his THE HEAT PLAGUE Off AUGUST, 1898. Mrs. Pinkham's Explanation of the TJnusual Number of Dee-tha and Prostrations Among Women. The great heat plagne of August. 1306, was not without its lesson. One could not fail to notice in the long lists of the dead throughout this country, that so many of the victims were women in their thirties, and women between forty-fivp and fifty. The women who succumbed to the protracted heat were women whose energies were exhausted by suffering's peculiar to their sex; women who. taking 1 no thought of themselves, or who. attaching no importance to first symptoms, allowed their female system to become run clown. Constipation, capricious appetite, restlessness, ( forebodings of evil, vertigo, languor, and weakness, especially in the morning, an itching sensation which suddenly attacks one at tiight, or whenever the blood becomes overheated, are all warning's. Don't wait too long to build np your strength, that is now a positive necessity! Lydia B. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has specific curative powers. You cannot do better than to commence a course of this grand ' " ' ' medicine. By the neglect of lirst s.yrnptoms you will see by the following letter what terrible suffering came to Mrs. Craig, and how she was cured : •• I have taken Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and think it is the best medicine for women in the world. I was so weak and nervous that I thought I could not live from one day to the next. I had pro- lapsus uteri and leucorrhoea and thought I was going into consumption. 1 would get so faint I thought I would die. I had dragging pains in my back, burning sensation down to my feet, and so many miserable feelings. People said that I looked like a dead ^- "woman. Doctors tried to cure me. but failed. I had given up when I heard of the Pinkham medicine. I got a bottle. I did not have much faith in it, but thought I would try it, and it made a new woman of me. I wish I could get every lady in the land to try it, for it did for me what doctors could not do."—MBS. SAILIE CKAIG, Baker's Landing, Pa. sails for the senate. Mr. Steele has an important place on the ways and means committee and I think should be returned to congress by the district." In an interview Jim Stutesman of Miami county, says he is a candidate to succeed Steele and that his nomination is practically assured. "Mr. Steele," he says, "is a candidate of course. He is always a candidate. He is not only a candidate for congress, but is a candidate for governor and for the United States senate." SENATOR WHITE, of California, summarizes his objection to Hawaiian annexation in this terse fashion: The islands are useless for defensive purposes, valueless from an eco- How Congress Begins Work. At an ordinary session the speaker of the house of representatives, who has been waiting in the speaker's room for the right moment, raps the house to order at 12 o'clock noon on the opening day of congress. At the first session of the Fifty-fifth congress last March a speaker was elected and lots were drawn for seats, so that now the members have only to take their places where they belong. The speaker says: "The house will come to order. The chaplain will offer prayer." This being done, the roll of members is called. Then the speaker announces that a quorum being present the house is ready for business. The first business is the swearing iu of new members, if there are any. Then by a resolution the house authorizes the speaker to appoint a com- nomic view: will contribute nothing j roittee which, jointly with a similar to national morals or wealth and will j committee from the senate, shall wait add an undesirable element to the j on the president of the United States already sufficiently burdened popula-! and inform him that congress is ready tion.

Prayer is offered, new members are sworn, in if there are any, and a committee is appointed to wait on the president conjointly widi the house committee and inform -him that both bodies are ready for his message. The message is ready, waiting for this particular announcement. At exactly the same moment oue of the president's clerks appears at the door of each house, bearing a copy of the message, which is formally received. Congress is open.

Many spectators are always present in the galleries at such a tims. The outward harmony between the European powers is trembling on the ragged edge. Trade rivalry, political rivalry, the making of new alliances to guard old rights and privileges, the overreaching of another power by fair means or foul—These are the day and night dreams of European diplomatists. The United Suites is disturbed by none of these troubles. She alone is in position to reap advantage from the diplomatic distractions of kings and emperors. She has only to go quietly on and enlarge her commerce and her prosperity in all quarters of the globe.

It has been found that the strip wears for years without cracking or being worn iuto holes. This shows that entire cobblestone streets, so rough and uneven as to be the terror of wagon and carriage drivers, may thus be simply coated with a sheet of asphalt and be made more durable than if paved with the regulation asphalt covering.

Or one who merely believes in getting drunk, or is it both the one and the other in all these .above When the Circus Is Iu Town. The greatest day of all the year in country regions is that on which the circus comes to town. Court adjourns, the public schools close, church socia- bles are postponed, and even the store is shut up while the proprietor goes to see the clown perform. Circus day in a country town is more of a show than a military and- naval parade sis hours long in Greater New York, with 10 governors in the procession. First comes the band wagon, with the boom and blare of the brazen horns, and the heart of the ragged small boy who runs behind beating high to the time of the drums. The camels parade, the ostrich wagon wabbles gracefully along, the painted girl with the bleached hair and the bicycle skirt without the leggings perched high upon the lion's cage, the other painted girl with the bleached hair posing a la Goddess of Liberty in a gilded chariot. After them come the elephants swaying their trunks from side to side, and again the ever present small boy, shrieking with delight, running breathless alongside, dropping hunks of precious gingerbread as he runs, so taken up with this show is he to the exclusion of all else. Nothing, not even the visit of £i president of the United States, could draw so many people into a rural hamlet as the magic announcement, "Circus day iu town." And yet, as the Charleston (W. Va.) Gazette sagely observed on a recent occasion, the best of the show is always outside the tent. Says The Gazette'con- cerning circus day in its town: One fond mamma left her little 18-months- old baby with friends while she went to tho circus. But the baby wanted to see tho elephant, too, and with this laudable purpose it sauntered out the boulevards. It bawled its way to a Clendeniiin struct, grocer's, where it was taken care of until claimed and identified by the mother. A crowd of a dozen young men and women from the country evidently thought the proper thing to do wan to smoke cigarettes, so the whole crowd wended its way up to the circus grounds, gayly pufting a\vi\y on the coffin nails and stopping now and then to get lights from each other. When does high priced wheat benefit the farmer, is a question variously answered. It does not do so at all seasons of the year. If the rise in wheat comes suddenly in the spring, just when the old stock of grain is low and the new is not yet in sight, speculators and grain dealers get all the advantage of it. If, however, a sharp advance comes abouc harvest time, whcu eight out of every ten agriculturists sell their wheat, then the farmer will gee bis share of the nood prices.

A RELIC OF THE PAST. of Surgical Operations For Hie Cure Piles and Rectal Diseases no Longer Kecessary. A Medical DJscoYery"'C Which T Change ihe Trea'ment of All Such Diseases. It has long been thought not only by sorae physicians Cut by people in general that the common, ; painful and exceedingly annoying trouble, piles, was practicably incurable by anyotber means than, a surgical operation, and this belief has-been the cause of years of needless suffering, because of the natural dreadjof ^surgical operations. There are many salves, ointments and similar remedies on the market which afford some relief la cases of piles, but the Pyramld^Pile Cure is t,he only preparation so far Introduced that can be reliably depended upon-to cure to stay cured, every furm of itching, bleeding^or protruding piles. Mrs. M. C. Hinkley of 601 Mississippi St , Indianapolis, was told by her physician that nothing but a surgical operation costing between seven and eight hundred dollars, could cure her as she had suffered for 15 years; yet even in such a case as hers the Pyramid Pile cure accomplished a complete cure. She says: "I knew an operation would be death to me and tried the Pyramid with very little hope and it is not to be wondered at that I am SOQ enthusiastic in its praise." Mr. D. E. Keed of South Lyons, Mich., says I would not take $500 and be placed back where I was before I used the Pyramid Pile Cure, I suffered for years and it Is now eighteen months since I used It and not the slightest trace ot the trouble has returned. The Pyramid Pile Cure Is sold by nearly all druggists at 50 cents and SI per package and as it contains no opium, cocaine or other poisonous drug can be used with perfect safety. No one need suffer from piles in any form who will give this excellent remedy a trial.
