IT is probable that McKenna will fee confirmed ad associate justice of the Supreme lourt this week. A Tote is expected next Friday. THE newly elected members of the Democratic state central committee will meet at Indianapolis tomorrow Hon. Parks Martin will likely be •hoseo chalrms.u of the committee IF people were all good we should kave no need o'. jails nor of trials in which the life of a human being Is in jeopardy. But people are not all good and they never will be until selfishness Is abolished and human passions perfectly controlled. THERJ, are out $1,500 of delinquent taxes du&1 n Franklin county, this state. This Is the best showln j made by any county In Indiana. Tranklin county has a voting population of 4.100 and a Democratic majority of nearly 1,100 at the last election. MAYOR "McKissos, of Cleveland, defies Hanna. He proposes to continue the fight against him until he is driven from official position. Not less defiant aro Ool. Conger, Cha.rles lurtz and Governor Bushnell. These gentlemen have a large following following among the Republicans of •hlo. GOVERNOR PINGREE, of Michigan, is opposed to Hannaism and tie is getting ready «o make a more vigorous fight thi)>n the anti-Hanmiites Made in Ohio. The corporations! are «pposed to Pic (?ree and will try to defeat him for governor next tall. He says be is read y and will ask no quarter. Pingree Is opposed to t'ne single gold standard and wants the power of corporations checked. ADAMS EAH:L, the leading citizen •f Lafayette, la dead. He was born in Falrfield county, Ohio, in 1819,and «mlgated to Tippecanoe county in 1837, settling on the Wea plains, where he engaged in farming. Jfrom 1840 to the time of his death he was actively associated with the business life of Lafayeibte, and had done much to promote tte Interests of that city. Charles B. Staart, formerly of this •Ity, married his only daughter. Is a bcantifui possession. If a woman owns one, and if a single pearl drops off the string, she makes h;iste to find and restore it. Good health is a more valuable possession than a necklace of the most beautiful pearls, yet one by one the jewels of health slip away, and women i;eem indifferent until it is almost too late, and they cannot be restored. To die before you are really old is to suffer premature death, and that is a sin. It is a sin because it is the resrult of repeated violations of nature's laws. Pain, lassitude and weariness, inability to sleep, drearMul dreams, starting- violently from sleep, are all symptoms of nerve trouble. You cannot have; nerve trouble and keep your health. In ninety-nine cases out of a hundred the womb, the ovaries and the bladder are affected. Th ey are not vital organs, hence they give out soonest. Mas. Lydia E. Pinkhaci's Vegetable Compound, by building up the nerves and restoring -woman's organism to its natural state, relieves all these trouble- seme uterine symptoms. In confirmation of this we. by permission, refer to the following women, all of whom speak from experience: Miss CELIA VAU HOHS, 1912 Sharswood St., Philadelphia, Pa.; Miss GRACE COI.I.OKD, 1434 Eastern Ave., Cincinnati, O.; MRS. NEWELL, 50 Ryerson St., Brooklyn, N. Y.; MJIS. ISABEL OBERG, 220 Chestnut St., Woburn, Mass., MRS. A. H. COLE, New Eochslle. N. Y., and masy others For special symptoms Mrs. Pinkham has prepared a. Sanative Wash, which will cure local troubles. Give these :m ed i cin es a trial. Write to Mrs. Pinkham, Lynn, Mass., if you are not quite satisfied; you can address private questions; to a woman,. ductlon or other cause either metal should rise In value above the other at the agreed ratio It would ceas.a be taken t,o the mints by contracting countries for coinage. It would be profitable to deposit the cheaper metal, because the metal costing the depositor less would go just as far In paying his debts. This would, tend to increase she value of the ' heapsr metal and to depreus that of the dearer by increasing the demand for the former anfl diminishing the demand for the latter. "Blmetallists dalm that in this way free access to the mints of either metal at the option of depositors would tend, powerfully to maintain the value of the two at the agreed mint ratio, pressing up the value of either one whan It is tending downward and pressing down Its value when it is tending upward, thus preserving a mean of the two mare stable than the value of eithor;woo,ld be if it were the sole standard." SECRETARY GAGE insists thai; the government must go out of the hanking business, and to get it. out •t the business he wants all the greenbacks :retired. The fact is disregarded that In the older •Ulllzed countries, no banks, other than a few that are government Agencies, are permitted to Issue circulating DOttis, and that their issue is not an essential part of the busl- «e§a of banking.. The usurpation by •ur American banks of the government function of supplying the people with a circulating medium. have been permitted for so many years that It has, In the eyes of oank •fflcers, become not only a vested privilege, but a vested monopoly. '*GOD relgins, and the Republican party still lives," wired Mr. Hanaa »pon the conclusion of the ballot which returned htm to the United States senate. What Inference Is to be drawn from Banna's teltsgram to McKlnley? Is It that, had Hanna been defeated, Pluto would have assumed control of the affairs of this mundane sphere and that niankind would have be- eome wicked, selfish and cruel? May it- be assumed also that the existence of the Republican party depended apon the election of Hanna to the senate? Is Hanna about all there Is left of the g. o. p? Would it die, If an end were made of Hanna's political existence? It Is known that the Republican party is Tory dependent just now. Its existence depunds upon the support the corporations may give It. Is Banna the only man that can control the trusts, the corporations and the gold eonsplratoni? Is he the only man that can force them to pay tribute to the g. o. p. and hold them in line? Hanna Is a great man—great «s » bulldozer and as a coiruption- igt—tut In the humble opinion of modest, Sod-fearing people, God would still reign and the Republican party would still lire if an honest man, instead of ii corrupt millionaire, >had been chosen to succeed John Sherman as senutor from Ohio. An evidence of the immensely increasing trade of our Pacific coast with Asiatic countries is the fact that one steamship company carried in :1S97 12,000 more passengers between San Fran- Cisco and Asiatic ports than during 1896. Yet this trade is only in its beginning. I Americans -who maka the tour of the world now go more often than not by •way of Sail Francisco and Asia, returning by way of Europe. Chinese and Japanese furniture and curios are more popular than those from Europe in wealthy American homes. We spend au immense amount of money in Asia every year. Let the American government increase its navy in Asiatic waters. Tho Double Standard. The Chicago Chronicle thus con- •iMlj iUteii the position of bimetalllita: "If by rdMon of diminished pro- A minister lately asked his congregation how many of them prayed for two noted state politicians belonging to lead-, ing political parties. Some persons consider the two to be very wicked. He mentioned the politicians by name and then said, "All who pray for these i;wo men raise your bauds." Nob a band went up.' This was strange, for if anybody at all needs praying for it is bad people. Tho good are already siafe. It is the wicked people on whom Christians should get iu their work. We observe a queer interpretation of parliamentary law in a state where the electiou of a senator is on. Certain legislators claim that the present incumbent of the senatorial chair is already out of office, that his term expired so soon as the legislature wet that was to elect his successor. They are away off. An official holds his place till hi.s successor is elected or appointed, no matter how much some people want him out. _ Are photographers artists? Yes, answer the photographers in chorus. JS?c, cry the artists who draw pictures by hand. The truth is that some photographers are artists; others are not It depends on t'he kind of photographer. On the other hand, not all who draw pictures by hand are Artists, far from it. In the eastern states many savings banks that have hitherto been able to pay 4 per cent interest are taking steps to reduce that rate to 33* per cent during the nest half year. They are overloaded with deposits and hard put to it to find safe investments that will return. to depositors 4 per cent a year. Retiring From Business. Two prominent business men in their respective localities have lately gone ont of life within a week of each other. One of them bad been suffering through a tedious illness thai; had lasted ten months. During that time he was a burden to himself and all his family, even the nearest and dearest, and though he was a good man it was a relief to all when his body was at length laid away under the sod. The other man's going out was a sadder one still. He committed suicide. There was no known motive for the deed. Like the man who had been ill ten months, he was a respected citizen and had plenty of money and friends. Few have more to live for than both these two men had or better chances for happiness. There was one similarity in the lives cf the two, although they were on different social planes. Each walkabout 60 years of age, and each had retired from business two years ago. Each slid the burdens and activities of a busy daily life off his shoulders and left himself free to "hare a good time." The good time never came. It was as if the very mainsprings of life had been removed from each, letting him down. The two men alike died of ennui. One. fell ill bodily, the other became mentally deranged. : A fatal mistake is this retiring from business, as it is called. Men who do it are tolerably sure to lose their health. Many of them die in a year or two. %he only healthful life is one of activity. The best way to live long and be happy is to keep incessantly busy at some useful work, not necessarily the same occupation always, bt.it something that will keep mind and body engaged constantly and agreeably. One Successful Exposition. The final settling up of accounts for this Tennessee Centennial exposition at Nashville shows a gratifying result. Tbe enterprise paid for itself and considerably more. It was the most characteristically local exposition on a large scale that the older -parts of the country have witnessed." Tennessee is as rich in local history and coloring and in the marked traits of its people as in mineral and agricultural resources, and that is^say- lug- much. This made the show at Nashville as unique as a great exposition can be. Nashville had designs that went fnr- ich€ir than the preparation of a temporary park for the buildines of the fair. Beautiful as the capital of Tennessee is, it has no central public park. It has long been the desire of .the citizens to secure such a park. Their civic pride was appealed to when tje city got the fair. Each subscribed according to his means. The police of Nashville taxed themselves §10 apiece for the fair. So did many other persons of comparatively small means. The ladies who had charge of the woman's building would not accept free passes, but paid their way every time they visited the fair. When the show was over, there was a comfortable surplus left. Patriotic Nashvillians, however, refused to take their money back, bat donated it to the city park. Where the art building stands will be the nucleus of Nashville'* city park. The art building is not a temporary structure. It will hold permanently the works contributed to it, and it will be the pride of Tennesseeans. The ground around it, already laid out in decorative landscape and planted with trees, shrubs and flowers, will form a rare breathing spot for home people and strangers. When General Booth, the Briton who bosses the Salvation Army of the United States from England, arrives in this country, .the first thing he should ik. would be to take his hopeful sou-iu-la\v. Booth Tucker, to one side uiid cunmiai;; him to be a little less free wilh the vei; omous utterances of his tongue, r!:- Americans will conclude then; is lita. religion hi tho Salvation Army i'er u- its fuss. ^ ________ The Russian is an unexcelled rlipl- mat on his o\vu ground. Tlsu prtut-. objection to the Russian uipJuii,;:. that he is isuch A liar. The "Domestic" Office. A news item says that in some counties of Alabama there is not a single public school house owned by the state and that the average amount of stats school money for colored children in these counties is only 50 cents a year. Can this be possible? The saddest fact connected with being a queen, princess or empress is that such an unfortunate lady can never know tho joy of visiting £b.e bargain counter. All goods must be seat to her palace for her to pass judgment on. CATARRH OF THE STOMACH. Sot the Way of Salvation. When without any tangible evidence we suspect other people of wrongdoing, we always accuse them of what we ourselves would probably be guilty of under like circumstances. So, when without any proof or reason Booth-Tucker, ! the head of the Salvation Army in 1 America, gives it as his public opinion, not at all privately expressed, that his gifted and beautiful sister-in-law, Mrs. Ballington Booth, ia shamming illness to gain sympathy he merely lets the light in on the motives that would be apt to actuate himself in such a situation. Booth-Tucker is a very queer exponent of the religion of love, peace and good will, the religion that think- eth 110 evil. It is no wonder his prison home for released convicts does not succeed. It is no wonder the released convicts take to stealing again. With suci a sneaking, suspicicus atmosphere pervading them as Booth-Tucker has shown himself to carry around with him it would be strange if they did not steal. It would be strange if anything Bootih- Tncker undertook succeeded. All bis Salvation Army howling in 40 years cannot wipe out the ignominy of which this fellow has been guilty, this slanderer of women. American men do not appreciate that kind of -lighting. Booth-Tucker will do well to take himself back to England. His kind of religion will not go down is the United States. An ill natured spinner cf cobwebs at the brain gives it as his opinion that if a woman's chance of getting a husband depended on her beauty then few ladies would marry, for jcetty women are tie exception, not the :rale, artong the feminine sex. Let th'ks man go bury himself. He is wrong. There are fcu- more pretty women than homely Vies, even without the application of tMi old saying that handsome is as handsome do«i. "We repeat it—thisre are more women than uncomely ones. \ there is a sweet tempered, intelligcnl;, sincere, healthy, immaculately clj^aa woman there yon ipill find a pretty man, and mankind may thank i tb»t then are millions .of these.
