THE Indianapolis monetary conference will convene again next week. There is no probability of Its recommendations being heeded by congress. JOHN SHERMAN, suppuoed to b« the greatest financier in this country, has nothing tc say on the money question. He is not meddling with the plans of Secretary Gage. GOVERNOR PINGREK sets up a correct proposition when he Bays that the rights of the most humble citizen are as worthy of being protected as the rights ot the most gigantic corporation. CHADNCEYM. DEPEW says that the Republican party is the worst demoralized It has been in twenty years. How would it do for Ohauncey's thirty millionaires to restore prosperity? GOVERNOR PINGKEE may be criti- cised for hli attacfcs on trusts and •orporatlons, but If the American people do not want their earnings •wallowed up by these greedy con- terns, they bad better heed the warnings of Plngree.

Haigh's scheme of delaying certain needed public improvements was at last thwarted. Market street may now be extended to the western limits of the city. "Why did Councilman No. 3, of the Fourth ward, oppose that extension? MARK HJLNWA has left marks of corruption along the pathway to the United States senate. Another member of the legislature has been found who received 15,000 in consideration that he would vote for Hanna Enough is silreaiy known to justify Eanna's expulsion from the senate. THE Chicago Chronicle maintains that tbe Democrats, being out of power, are not called upon to settle the currency question. "That task,' it says, "was assumed by the Repub llcan party. It was the issue of the •ampaign of 1896 and the Bepubll- tanswon. But they did not win »pon a j_old standard platform. They tould not have won upon such a platform. They admitted that fact •when they inserted In the St. Louis platform a pledge to promote International bimetallism. If that pledge was nothing but a bait to catch votes It Is as valid and binding today as it was in 1896. The thousands of western Kepubhcans, who, like Senator Wolcott, remained In the party when their sympathies were all with the Democracy will dissent from the conclusion that the failure of a oommis- ilon.predestined.to failure releases the Republican party from the pledge given In Its national platform." The following letter other women to follow her example, to Mrs. Pinkham : "I thank you very much for what you have done for me, for I had ffiven up in despair Last February, I had a miscarriage caused by overwork. It affected my heart, caused me to have sinking spells three to four a. day, lasting sometimes ha.f a day. 1 could not be left alone. I flowed constantly.

THE laboring pisople of New Bog- land, employed In the cotton mills, are too poor to strike. The Boston Post, in speaking of the reduction made In the wages of people employed in these cotton mills, says: If there ever was a case in which a cut down from 10 per cent In wages of iaoor was unjustifiable it is the case of those cotton mills in New Bedford, which have paid large dividends for many years, up to and including the year 1897, just closed. Profits which permit the payment of dividends of 6, 9, 12 and even 16 per cent do not call for a reduction of the labor cost of production. If there was ever a justifiable strike of labor It is the strike of the opera- tlvea in these great dividend-paying mills against an unnecessary, unwarranted and distressing cut-down lin their wages. Why are not the courts appealed to lor an injunction to prohibit this re ductioc In wages? JUDGE MAKTINDALE, in an addniss before the state board of commerce at its session tuts week at Indianapolis, took strong grounds !n opposi tion to the top heaviness of our co tn mon school system. He said he (lid not believe the constitution ever In tended that institutions of higher learning should be sustained by tix ing the people. "When," he sa.id, "you come down to institutions being supported by the state parelj toi »be purpose of giring a higher education, that is d«*d wrong. It was tha purpose of the constitution to pro- vide as good a common school education as might be—not to furnish aigber. education at the expense of the taxpayers." The judge is certainly right. The amount of public money now expended upon our high schools and colleges would, If used for legitimate common school purposes, lengthen the terms of the country and city schools to an average of nine months each year. SENATOR CHANDLER says he had a 'great notion" to send Senator Hanna this message: "I congratulate you on this latest victory for sound money. How much?" "The wit of this," says the New York World, "lies altogether in its truth. And that truth Is so terrible that it is impossible for any public body to retain public respect cr its own self-respect when it receives Hannas into its company without a protest and with a burst of cynical laughter." ^•^••WMHW • — Join It by All Means. May Irwin, the comic actress, whose specialty Is "coon songs," who has made millions of people lacgh till they cried, has accumulated over $100,000 in a few years by her art, and everybody is glad of her pood fortune. Her art is pnre and simple good nature, beaming/kindly good' humor, as geu- oine ofl the stage as it is artistic on the stage. We mention this fact merely to show how good nature and jolly cheerfulness I pay, even in dollars and cents. Cheer- uiness pays so well in every way that we hope Mr. Theodore F, Seward will be eminently successful in his effort to an immense constituency for his 'Don't Worry" organization. Mr. Seward thought he discovered years ago hat the American people were slaves to the worry habit. It made them melancholy, dyspeptic and sometimes wicked, not to speak of blasting their chances :or business success. Then Mr. Seward, philanthropise that he was and is, be;an founding "Don't Worry" clubs throughout the Union. He also wrote a book called "Don't Worry; tbe Scientific Law of Happiness." Its ruling thought is chat when you have done tbe best you know how to do conscientiously, doing always as you would be done by, jnst stop aud leave results to work themselves ont. They will always come right. Anybody call form a "Don't Worry" club. There are no dues; there is no government. A neighborhood, a family, can start a society. Oue person, in fact, can establish a club ail by himself acd fill the offices. "If worry can be conquered, nearly all the passions that destroy our happiness will disappear/' Bays Mr. Seward. Here are some of the rules of the Don't Worries: powers'ot Europe only restrained' from seizing all of them by jealousy of one another, shows the absolute necessity for the United States to construct the Nicaragua canal without delay. We must have some way of quickly reaching Asia from the Atlantic coast. With the canal in operation under our control we should be far and away the most^powerful as iroo Muct Learning. What $*ople in Bible times thought 01 one who studied many books is shown -by the judgment expressed in one passage of Scripture, "Much learning hath made him mad." Learning dees not often make a man downright crazy, but porins over books makes him ineffably stupid very often. It makes him un- businesslike, absennninded and forgetful of the very things he needs most to know. The venerable and respected librarian of congress, Hon. A. R. Spofford, is a case to tbe point. Like a thunderclap 'same the announcement three years aga that a shortage of $30,000 had been found in his library accounts. He r-onld cot possibly be dishonest, said those wbo knew him. Yet where was the money? He could not tell; nobody -onld Kill" and the poor gentleman at length 'oegged to make good the deficit out of .Bis own savings of a lifetime, which he was allowed to do. Not long since, in moving the contents of the old library to tbe new building, a pigeonhole filled with money orders, postofflce orders mostly, was found, some of them atiug back 25 years. The man of mnch earning had simply forgotten to get hem cashed. Tbe successful business man, tbe great inventor, tbe artist, even the most riginal writer on economic subjects, is eldom the college graduate. Technical chools and manual training schools are, if course, greatly needed, the more the better. But of that education which ransforms a live man into a dull, near- igbted, absentminded student o£ mere books we have enough and too much. ,ive men, full of practical experience, men with a clear, quick eye and red jlood in them—these are the ones wanted. If they have also scientific and technical training, so much the better, but no wore bookworms, no more book worms. The demand of today is that we think our own thoughts, not those of others.

He subjects bodies to a certain dry air proces* by which they become hardened and mummified while retaining still the color and appearance they bad at death. He proposes therefore that instead of burying the dead mankind shall build huge mausoleums and put the bodies in rooms or niches therein and keep them always, like horrible Egyptian mummies, except that by tb"e new method the remains will not turn black and shrivel tip. A more frightful fancy has not emanated from human brain even in these days of pessimism and morbidity. A human being is not his body. He is himself; his body is his garment. What exceedingly poor, not to say crazy, judgment we should display, if we were to preserve in glass cases al our old clothes, place them in a niarbli bouse and make pilgrimages to visi them, with music and flowers and pomp at least once a year! No! Out of sight, and quickly, witb, the mortal garment the soul" of man ha, worn. It is-not so beautiful,/nor was i so healthy or comfortable•. .that ocr friends should want to preserve it afte tbe owner and wearer of it has fled. Many of the most intelligent and thoughtful persons of our time earnestly advocate cremation as the safest and least unpleasant manner of disposing of the dead. To preserve bodies in tbe manner tbe inventor of the new process proposes would heap the earth, with corpses. Virginia Apples. The apple crop in many parts of the country was n failure iu 1897. Not so in Virginia. The mild, equable climate of tba Old Dominion permits the raising of apples as regularly as the seasons fall. Mr. J. H. Hale reported to the Hartford Conrant that in his wanderings among the hills of Virginia in tha autumn he found one farm on which the 1S97 apple crop sold for $15,000 aud another where it brought $14,000, the purchaser gathering the apples himself. The apples in these two orchards belonged chiefly to one particular variety, the N ewtown Pippin. Mr. Hale found in the apple counties buyers searching eagerly for this one fruit Why the Newtown Pippin in particular? There are other apples as good and beautiful. Well, the Newtown Pippin happens to be tbe special kind of apple that many a year ago struck the taste of her majesty Queen Victoria. Immediately the whole British nation, brave toady that it is, took to the apple in question, and from that day to this is has been considered It is hoped and expected that among the Pennsylvania buildings at the Orna- ba exposition, which opens June 1, there will be an exact reproduction of the old Independence hall at Philadelphia, where first was rung the bell that pro- slaimed the birth of a nation and liberty to all tbe people. A reproduction of the hall would be a noble object lesson to the generation of Americans that have been born and reared west of the Mississippi. Honest pensioners will not object to the passage of tbe bill introduced into the house of representatives by Mr. Beach calling for the publication each March 1 of a list of all the names of soldiers and their families who receiv relief from tho government. It is no dis g race — on the contrary, it is an honor— for a man wbo served his country faith fully to have bis country help take can of him and his when he is past doing i himself. • One result of the law forbidding tb importation of sealskins from Cauad; or Great Britain will be to make othe handsome furs more fashionable more in demand than they have been The law is so strict ia its interpretatia that persons who cross aud repress t and from Canada daily over thu Kiag ara Falls bridges have had tbeir tluiih taken from their backs on touching tl, American side.__ If General Booth, head of the Salvation Army, is as homely as his picture represents him, it explains some things heretofore unintelligible. — - — COMMON SENSE CUKE. pyramid Pile Cure Cures Piles Permanently by Curing the Cause.

Probably half tbe people wbo see this article suffer from piles. It is one of the commonest diseases and one of the most obstinate. People tiave it for years and just because It Is not immediately fatal they neglect it. Carelessness causes no end of suffering. Carelessness about so simple a thing as piles has often caused death.
