"Vincennes, Ind., Dec. 11.—As a further explanation of why he refused his pension money, the Rev. Thomas J. Keith, of this city, has written to :he commissioner of pensions as follows: "In answer to your inquiry as to why I absolutely refused a pension from the government and the making of full restitution of all money received by me. amounting in the aggregate to 54Sa.SC. I •would say: I have just made rny final remittance in restitution of money drawn on the pension certificate, one under the old law and one under the new, •which had been surrendered. I assigned as the reason therefor in one case the non-appreciable existence of the disease alleged in the certificate to exist, and in the other unwillingness to be classed as a 'dependent' under pension bill so named while drawing a pension on a certificate alleging 'inability to earn support by manual labor. 1 Put» in a Word for a Service Pension. "I hold an honorable discharge, dated Jan. 15, 1S66, for four years and six months' service. My income is less than J400 per annum, but I must be right •with God and conscience. A moderate service pension to all veterans would be less expensive and more Just than the multitude of very large ones issued on evidence often false and fraudulent, •ne Presbyterian elder draws $30 a month for alleged deafness while in charge of a long-distance telephone.

Washington, Ind., Dec. 11.—Aaron Burr Hawes, a well-to-do farmer of this county, who was sent to the Indiana prison south for a term of eight years for complicity in the burning of the Da- vless county court house in October, 1891, is at home on parole.

Those long empire dresses, fulled in to a yoke, are still affected by very little girls, and a real- lv smart effect is obtained by making the yoke and sleeves of a different color or material. This idea can be copied in quite ordinary material, such as red or crimson serge, for the yoke, eta, with dark blue for the frock. Just in the same manner a plain frock can be smartened by revers, neckband and belt of velvet in some deep color contrasting well with the woolen ma- BABY HUMORS Instant relief for skin-tortured babies w rest for tired mothers jr. a warm bath wi:.

BABY BLEMISHES It is not generally known that General Washington was 'killed In a most cruel and barbarous manner, but It Is, nevertheless, a fact. At the time of his death, Washington was in hi9 sixty-eighth year, a strong, robust man. On December 12, 1799, he contracted a severe cold and pneumonia threatened. Two doctors were summoned, and, in accordance with the absurd custom of those days, they proceeded to bleed have made great discoveries in recent years, and do not go back to the antiquated remedies and concoctions that were used a hundred years ago. It will not to. What you, reader, need to cure the headaches, dizziness, tired, worn-out and irritable feelings, constipation, and bearlng-dowa sensations, is some modern discovery based on scientific truths that will strike at the root of the trouble. You are sick because their patient. Nearly a quart of; your kidneys are out of order and blood was taken from his veins, until you should at once see that they are at last he begged them to let him die put in order. "Yes," you say, "this [n peace. He died that same day- is easy to assert, but what shall I F . • -"- (j 0 ;>» Take the best and most scientific discovery for these troubles you can find, Ask any advanced not from disease, but actually from loss ot blood. He was killed by ignorance! In these days, any doctor who treated a patient as Washington was treated, would be Indicted for manslaughter. The world has moved since then, and there has been a complete revolution in the practice ot medldne. Instead of lowering the vital forces by thinning the blood, advanced physicians now endeavor to build up the strength of their patients. They employ only the latest and most scientific remedies. And yet, in spite of this fact, we find thousands of people endeavoring to improve their health by taking old-fashioned medicines. They forget that chemists and scientists scientist what this is and he will tell you, Warner's Safe Cure. This discovery stands alone, by itself, and far above all so-called medicines of the past or nostrums of the present. In speaking about it Dr. William Edward Bobson, of London, says. "I conscientiously and emphatically state that I have been able to give more relief and effect more cures by the use ot Warner's Safe Cure than by any other medicine attainable to the profession." This is high praise, but nc higher than the subject: deserves as you will readily ascertain upon using this great, modem discovery. JEloprnent Takes Pl»<-« at Bourbon-Dad Proves a Bad Shut.

PALETOT. terial, or if on blacker very dark shades a Telvet of bright color may be employ, ed These adornments are especially pretty for girls of 10 to 15 where gored skirts are worn with full or blouse tops, these, of course, made on a shaped lining. A pretty mode! is made on a shaped lining, opening down the front, and the right side of the material fastening slightly to the left side, under the how finishing the belt. The sleeves are of the small bishop shape, fulled into a cuff of velvet, and the skirt is gored and set into two bos plaits at the back. Naturally, Russian styles must Be adapted for girls, and a second model gives a most useful toilet of this class, which would be pleasing in gendarme blue cloth, a little braiding and very naiTOW borders of black astrakhan, or it would be smart in red serge, with black caracul or fox, and in dark brown or black, with narrow brown or gray fur, could also be used as a separate coat with other skirts. Here the Russian coat is warmly lined, the material and lining cut alike and inade np together and forming H cozy outdoor coat, which can be worn over any dress or blouse. It can, however, be equally copied as a blouse bodice and a cape or wrap worn over it, but in this case it is better to omit the basque and finish the waist with the belt. In outdoor wraps the cape is a favorite for tall girls, but jackets, almost tight fitting and with double breasted fronts and tailor lapels, are more girlish and useful. The long sack paletots are charming for outdoor wear, and it is the fashion now to set them into two box plaits, back and front, and supplement with deep cape collars, edged with fur. A model of this type which is suitable for girls of 4 to 12 is most effective in plum or green cloth, with gray fur. Boys' attire is now very quaint and picturesque, and faced cloth is largely •worn by small boys. The long coaching paletot, with big pearl buttons, topped by a little cap of the same cloth, is very uncommon, or the long and rather tight coat, with small sleeves and felt tyro- lean hat, suggests the attire of a century ago. The moujik blouse, made exactly as worn in Bussia, is also new and has dark brown fur and is generally green and blue, with a leather belt and knickers of the same cloth, which are only visible below the knees. Tan shoes, stockings and gloves are mostly worn with colored costumes, but it is a dark tan, verging on brown.
