The/ defied the jfreiit Ohio boss._ ; CONGRESS has now been in session nearly two months nod the money ^uesMon has not even been considered . __ HANNA Is now a senator of the United States. He got there without the help of Foraker. "What stand will he direct McKlnley to take on the money question? REPRESENTATIVE OTIS declares over his signature that he knows ab- •olutelythat Mark Hsnna did attempt to bribe In the senatorial contest. But tne legislature refuses to investigate. Bribery Is Hanna's great bold_. ALLEN W. CLARK, of Greensburg, will be a candidate before tbe Democratic state convention for clerk of the Indiana supreme court. Mr. Clark is a man of excellent character, of unquestioned fitness for the place and has made many sacrifices for the party. He is In every sense worthy •f the position he seeks. THE gold standard has done greater injury to the laboring classes of lurope than to ours. In England tbe engineers have been on a strike against a redaction of wages for many months, and it is estimated thot the loss up to the present time •ccasioneJ by the strike will reacb Miore than $100,000,000- THE president has nominated as consul at Mantanzas, Cuba, Henry O. Sayler, of Pennsylvania, a man who stands accused of attempting to rob the treasury of that state by presenting to the legislature a fraudulent bill of expenses while he was chairman of a committee engaged in the investigation of the mining troubles. The Pennsylvania legislature refused to p»y the bill and denounced it as fraudulent. The committee on appropriations cut it down three-fourths and then made an allowance for its payment which the governor vetoed. Twenty-four of the leading Republicans of the town in which Sayler UTCS waited upon President McKinley and denounced Sayler as a disgrace to the community. Nevertne- lesa President McElnley has complied with the demand of Senators Quay and Penrose, that this interesting person be "taken care of." and the •enate will confirm the nomination on the ground of courtesy. MATOE McKissoN,- who fought Hanna to the end of the senatorial •ontest and who will continue to fight him until he is driven out of public lite r in defining the causes which impelled himself and others to oppose Hanna, he said: In the senatorial contest just eloaed the question at issue has been whether the true principles of the Republican party should prevail or whether trusts and monopolies •honld have their way. Mr. Hanna •uoceeded simply because he brought to his aid all the powerful influences of capitalistic greed, of which he Is a clear representative. The contest, now ended, was not between parties in any sense, but between Republicans, one representing plutocracy and the other the common people. Mr, Hanna has introduced into Kepubllcan policy of corrupt and lavish use of moneiy heretofore unknown to our party and which has reached an alarming crisis within the last few days. The policy is a serious menace to the success and perpetuity of the party, and If continued cannot help but threaten Its •»ery existence. IT is reported that Boss Croker is opposed to the renominatlon of William Jennings Bryan for president. It may be predicted that New York will not again be powerful in the councils of the Democratic party. The Democratic party had better fight and lose than fight and win, to be governed by New York bosses. Tbe people may er.pect a reafflrma- tion of the Chicago platform in IJiOO. The Democratic party may expect to lose the support olt the rich men in the east. They will be actuated in the future as in the past by self interest, and will adhere to the gold standard. The rioll Democrats of the east are more devoted to the gold standard than President McKinley. The president shows signs of wanting to get rid of gold monometal- lism.

Mrs. Pinkham Tells How "Women May Avoid Painful Exarnina.tions. To a modest, sensitive, high- strung- young -woman, especially an unmarried woman, there is no more trying or painful ordeal than the "examinations." which are now so common in hospitals and private practice. An examination by speculum, or otherwise, is sometimes a positive necessity in certain stages of manv diseases peculiar to women, so at least it is declaredl by the profession. This would not t>e the case if patients heeded their synjptoms in time. If a young girl's blood is watery, her skin pale and waxy looking, her lips colorless, bowels torpid, digestion poor, lier ears and temples throb and she is subject to headache, begin at once to build up her system with Lydia E/ Pinkham's Vegetable Compound,-"" Do not allow her to/undergo a physical examination. Here is a letter f :pom a young lady who requests that her name should nbt be used, but gives hepifiitials and street number so that any inquiry oddfessed to her will be received! She says: / ,,,.,. " Dear Mrs. Pinkham:—It affords me great pleasure to be able to say a. few words in regard' to the merits^: your Vegetable Compound. I was tempted to try it after seeing the&rfects of it upon my mother, and now I feel like a new person. fiam a stenographer and was troubled with falling of the womb and female weaTcneaSln general. I continued to work until I was so weak I could no longer walk, and the last day I was forced to stop and rest. "I was then so ill that I was compelled to stay in bed. and so nervous that I could not hold anything in my hands. The least noise or surprise would cause my heairt to beat so loudly, and I would become so weak that I could hardly stand. I suffered for almost a year. It is different now. I can go about my work with pleasure, while before, work was a drudge. " Trusting that my words of praise may help some other afflicted person, and be of benefit to womankind in general, I remain, Yours in gratitude, L. H., 44-i S. East St., Indianapolis, Ind." The New Fad. The late Prentice Mnlford conld hardly hare expected that the philosophy ha so earnestly advocated in the White Cross Library series would become in a few years after his death a fad for the winter's entertainment of fashionable circles, yet snbh in proving to be the case. Glasses of society ladiee, with a sprinkling—a very faint sprinkling—of men, meet on certain afternoons of the week to think themselves into desired habitual states of mind and ultimately of body. If anything can induce those whose lives are devoted to amusement to think seriously on aay subject whatsoever, even so often :»s once a week, there will be great gain. The pervading Idea of the Mnlford philosophy was thai; raind, being superior to matter, should control matter, which of itself is A thoroughly reasonable proposition. ]Se3:t, if we persistently and systematically train our conscious minds to thiai: in a given desired direction, the subconscious mind in us all, which pervades our whole body, wherever there are nerves, will at length take up the train of our habitual conscious thought and impress it on our bodies and outward environments. Thus in the course of years, a longer or shorter time, according 'to Our powers of concentration, we can think onr bodies into health, OUT tempers into sweetness and serenity and our lives into habitual happiness. Everything 1 must exist in thought before it oau be materialized, was the Malford idea. By controlling and concentrating our thoughts we can create for ourselves new bodies and desirable environments, reasoned .Mnlford. Therefore whatever good thing one desires let him "think hard that way." Thinking hard is a, robust and healthful mental exercise to be commended to mankind in general. Some Bod Men. •It is enough to turn the very hair gray of that good man Commander Booth-Tucker—this v,-ay his pets the ex- convicts are turning out after all his kindness in esta bli siring homes for them. One of these homos has been in Contra Costa county, Cal. There as soon as a fellow in the penitentiary for robbery or assault or embezzlement had served his time out he wits received within the sheltering ariaa of the beautiful Prison Gate home and put in the way of being a good man. He was to cultivate an acre of ground all no himself and was allowed the proceeds thereof, be the same more or ]«ss. The system was a beautiful one. The only trouble with it was the human factor. The ex-convicts seem to have despised and treated with scorn the plan to allow them to become good men. One who had been at the home for a long time and was thought to be nntirely regenerated, a man "in whom was reposed great trust," stole a horse, wagon and harness and sold them and had to be recaptured and returned to the penitentiary. Another had just stepped out of the prison gates and was on his way to the home. By way of a final blast of iniquity before reforming he stopped in Oakland and robbed a house and was caught, and he, too, went back to the penitentiary. These things are very discouraging to those who wish to make bad men good. It is enough to draw tears from eyes unused to weep. says in his secret soul, "By jove, what a fine Britoa am II" The fake Englishmen now abroad! in our land remind oma of the fake hackney horses which same Americans try to manufacture ont of good plain United States trotters. They rein up the trot- tor'ahead, get him to jerk his knees and wabble loftily,in his gait in imitation Oit the- British article, and then cry, "Behold this beantifnl hackney." The American Anglomania dons London clothe*, drawls *ad minoes in his , iwearj by M*. bloody-Bye^ British Cable Cars. All largfe American cities and many smaller ones are familiar with th«stref. car propelled by the cable system. A grip underneath the car is manipulated by the motor-man, who grasps with it the moving cable in the slot beneath the street or releases it when he wishes to stop the car. Mr. Biranj S. Maxim, the airship inventor, has discovered that- Brixton, a suburb of London, has adopted the American cable street car—that is the American cable car with variations. He did not recognize the American cable system at first, since "each car was provided with a small and extremely ugly locomotive.'' He could not understand what the locomotive was for and questioned the gripman, who explained: "Well, underground here is a wire rope. This 'ere thing goes down through this 'ere slot and clamps the rope, and the rope pulls the locomotive, and the locomotive pnJls the carriage, don't you see?" "What is the object of the locomotive!" "Why, to draw the oar, of ooursa." "But why not put the clamp on the en* and dispense with the locomotive altogether?" ' After he had thought the matter, ovc^a short time I asked again: "What is the use of the locomotive?" Hi.H reply was: "I'll be hanged if I know." Now, if this system had been introduced into a country like Germany, Franco or Sputa, the natives would have had sufficient respect and confidence in American engineers arid systems to have put it up in the exact manner that ic was imported, but a» the English engineers were used to a locomotive and "wished to make some change in the American model They add«d the "locomotive," which certainly looks very awkward and i3 without question superfluous. ~__ General John W. Foster, the American whom China recognizes as her disinterested friend, long ago advised' the officials there to reconstruct the army and navy. He likewise modestly suggested that nobody could take charge of the reconstruction more scientifically than a number of officers from the American army and navy. But China did not take this kind advice, and now she lias helpless. Perhaps, however, it is as well for the fame of our army and navy that she did not adopt General Foster's suggestion. No foreign officers could do anything with a people in whom the national spirit is as feeble and indifferent as in the Chinese. The contrast with Japanese patriotism shows that China, the oldest nation, is at length also a dying nation. Our gold production in the year juts past was $61,718,000, according to the figures of the director of the mint, being $8,600,000 greater than in 1896. The increased prod action adds not quite 87 cents to the average wealth of the population of the Union. Air. Willard G. Day of Baltimore claims to have discovered a process for making choice butter from vegetables. It is a matter oi electricity, chemistry and microbes. .Excuse us, but we prefer butter from jnst plain, old fashioned cow yet awhile. Tie London Times declares it: is to England's interest to preserve China intact as a vast field for the extension of trade and to maintain her as a "going concern.'' China is a going coiacern, in the auctioneer's sense, "going, going, gone." "China is today a nerveless, pulpy mass." says General Foster. But; whit could be expected of a country where pigs are harnessed up as draft animals? Of the 161,718,000 ia gold mimed in this country the past year Colorado produced $22,000,000. .

D«atli Roll Will Be long of PeopJe Fatally Hurt in tli« Storm. Van Buren, Ark., Jan. 13.—The tornado that descended upon Fort Smith Tuesday night crossed the Arkansas river half a mile south of here and tore a path 200yards wide through this (Crawford) county and dealt death and devastation to everything in its path. The first house it struck was that of William Hines, occupied by a colored family, who left the house just as it left Its foundation. The house was demolished, but the occupants escaped. The next house in line was Frank Boatright's. It was a large two-story frame house, and nothing remains of it but the floor. Boatright, a son and a daughter, were badly injured. The houses of Walter Haley and Mrs. Keller were on an adjoining farm and were blown entirely away, not a vestige of them being left; the families of both were injured. Jim Shibley's store and dwelling were blown down, but none of the occupants was injured. Charles Wright was blown from his house and fatally injured. Ed Blakemore was instantly killed by his house blowing down on him. The house of Mrs. Bash was demolished and she was crushed into a shapeless mass,of flesh and bone, and two of her children, aged 8 and 16, were fatally hurt. It is estimated 100 head of cattle and horses were in the path of the tornado and were killed, or injured so badly that they had to be killed. It is five miles on a. direct line from Van Buren to Fort Smith, and debris from there was strewn over the ground three miles beyond here. A mass meeting was held iere last night to relieve the destitute Finpree Still After €he Corporations. Detroit. Jan. 13.—Governor Pingree and nearly all the chiefs of the state departments held an all-night conference at the governor's residence in this city to discuss the advisability of convening the legislature of Michigan Feb. 1 in special session, to pass, if the governor's friends are sufficiency strong-, laws to fix railway fares and make the corporations pay taxes. Governor Pingree refuses to discuss the situation, but his advisers announce unofficially that the legislature will be reconvened. EXPERIMENTS IN COOKERY. The "Domestic" Office. How Many Articles of Food lose Kutri- tion In the Kitchen. Few housewives are aware of the extravagant waste of food there is in cooking. A series of investigations just completed by esperts connected with the United States department of agriculture go to show that there.is an immense amount of popular ignorance in the matter of cooking; that, while the greater part of the food of roan is prepared for use by cooking, yet the changes which various foods undergo during the process and the losses which are brought about have been but little studied. Experiments with potatoes showed that in order to obtain the highest food valne potatoes should not be peeled before cooking; that when .potatoes arc- peeled before cooking the least loss if sustained by putting them directly into hot water and boiling as rapidly as pos sible. Evyi then the loss is very considerable. If potatoes are peeled and scskf o in cold water Isefore boiling, the loss oi nutrients is very great, being one-itsrtt of all the albnmenoid matter. In t bushel of potatoes the loss would in equivalent to a pound of sirloin steak. Carrots contain less nitrogen, bnt rtl attvely more albnmenoid nitrogen tL-ai and .therefore fareiih ="^ Now is the time to provide yourself with a good Sewing Machine at a very low price.

In order to preserve the greatest amount of nutrients in the cooking of carrots the pieces should be large rather thau small The boiling should be rapid, so that the food value of tbe vegetable shall not be impaired. As little -water as possible should be used, and if the matter extracted is made available as food along with the carrots a Joss of 20 to 80 per cent or even more of the total food value may be prevented. In the cooking of cabbage the kind of water used has more effect on the loss of nutrients than the temperature of the water at which the cooking i& started. In any case the loss is larga la 100 pounds of uncooked cabbage •there are but 1% pounds of dry matter, and of this dry matter from 2J^ to 8 pounds are lost in tbe cooking pot A PLAGrtJE OF THE NIGHT It eking Piles and UtherfRectil Troubles Easily Cured by a New and Safe Hethod.

Many physicians for a long time supposed tha'i the remarkable relief afforded by the Pyramid Pile Cure was because It was supposed to contain cocaine, opium or otner similar drugs, but such is not the case, A recent analysis of the remedy showed ;t to be absolutely free from any cocaine, opium, or in fact any poisonous, injurious drugs whatever. For this reason the Pyramid Pile Cure Is probably [the only pile cure extensively recommended by physicians, because ft Is «o safe, so prompt in libe relief afforded and so far as known the only positive cure for piles except a surgical operation. In one year the Pyramid Pile Cure has become the beat known, the safest and the moat extengltely sold of any pile cure before the public. Nearly all druggists now sell It at oOcts and tl per package.

If suffering from any form of piles ask: your druggist for a package of Pile Core and try It tonight, WILHELM'S DREAM. The Emperor of Germany Think* He I» King of England. It is rather curious to outsiders, writes- the London correspondent of Tie Times- Herald, and wholly unpleasant to the queen to know that tbe German emperor regards himself as tbe rightful successor to England's throne. This is a matter rarely spoken of, though perfectly -well realized at court, and it is a strenuous' reason against her majesty's ever abdicating in favor of the Prince of Wales.. So when next you hear that she meditates such a stop do not believe it. She' is safe to do nothing of the kind, though she lives to 100 years. The errario G«r» man emperor bases his claim on th» not unnatural assumption that Ms mother, faorn princess royal and eldest child of Queen Victoria, is heir to that mother's- crown, and he her immediate successor. It is said that the kaiser is wildly indignant because his mother will not- press her claim and take her rightftrt. place as the future sovereign erf! England- That the Prince'of Wales is not tbe Prince of Wales, but that the kaiser M- that as well as emperor of Germany, he- has fully decided in bis own mind. When the time comes for his contention, it is scarcely probable that be wiK , hold his peace. Of course it ia not for a moment to be supposed that Englaad would endure William for its king. But the case is a knotty one upon -whick even the constitutional lawyers cannot agree. While the queen remains sovereign this family unpleasantness is not likely ' to arise, but when she abdicates or dies- there is pretty sure to be an uncomfortable time for all parties concerned.. Still, the English are certain to reject ,. the kaiser, even though England has to resolve itself into a republic and then, choose Albert Edward to be its rule*: Quite as strange things as this have I happened in the history of the world and may chance again. In spite ot rn- mors and raillery of the press in bygone times the Prince of Wales is well liked in the CJnited Kingdom. Moreover, the English temper would not bear the German emperor's ideas ot "leze majesty." Here one may discnss the prince's debts or tbe queen's penn- riousness, and nobody interfere* «r minds in the least In Germany one- may not mention the kaiser's name disrespectfully, because even the walls- have spying eyes and listening ears, and "leze majesty" is sorely punishable, German students, I am told, are driven to alluding to his mightiness as "Hen- Johannes Schmitt" or "Squire J$emo" ia order to save themselves from punishment for anything that may be construed as "leze majesty." In short, there is no such thing as freedom of speech in the German empire, and suck an active, inquisitive, curious rcau is William that, it is said, he keeps carefully posted on everything that goes on in our country as vrell as his ova.
