TFBMB OF SUBSCRIPTION - Dally per weelilOciinw; per month 40 cents; per year XEtered at the Ix)gaD B port, * nd -; class maU mattor, as law. is boih force and truth In this- paragraph, culled from the Peru Sentinel: "An anarchist is one who may be defined aa a law unto nim- ~ «.elT. II' this definition IB correct, »nd few will dispute it, the most dangerous anarchists that threaten the well-being of society today are those vast combinations! of wealth that take no note of established law, but are the Instruments of oppression and the destroyers of healthful competition." _ „_____ COMMENTING upon Governor Pingree's recent attack on the ruling forces la his party, the New York World inquires: 1 Is not the entire machinery of the Kepublican party owned, controlled and! directed by and for King Boodle? Aro not Hanna and Quay logical and natural Eepubllcan senators, just as ibe Dlngley law and Hawaiian annexation are perfect specimens of logical and natural Republican legislation? And McKinley, with bis one eyery-three- weeks rate of pardons for respectable bank wreckers, with his •more liberal pensions' when there are now more pensioners than eur- Tlvors, with his debauchery of the high Federal offices by such appointments as McKenna's, with his degradation of the lower and broader ranks oi public life by such infamous characters as the New Orleans dive keepers—is not he a typical Eepub lican president?" _ A GOOD many Republican voters are wondering what their party's petition on the silver question is. Just now Secretary Gage Is trying to commit the party to the single gold standard. The Republican platform •f 1888 declared that "the Repub Hcan party Is in favor of the use oi toth gold and silver as money, and condemns the policy of the Demo- •ralic administration In Its efforts to demonetize silver." The platform of 1892 reads: "The American people from traditioa and interest, favor bl metallism, and the Republican party demands the use of both gold and •liver as standard money, with such ""Xjreitrlctlons and under suob. provisions as will secure the maintenance of the parity of values of the two metals so that the purchasing and debtpaylng power of the dollar, whether silver fold or paper, shall be at all time •qual." The platform of 1896 pledged th maintenance of the gold standard intil England would help this coun try get rid of It. Power of Newspapers. Men who desire to bring about return of prosperity to this country •hould act upon the advice of Wm. J. Bryan and lend their practical as •well as moral support to the Democratic papers. No agency Is more potent for good •r ill than Is the newspaper. Recognizing this fact, Bryan earnestly advises the Democracy of • v the nation to subscribe for and ad?'.'• fertile in the Democratic journals, ; thus giving legitimate support to the . advocates of the people's cause. During the presidential campaign ' of 1S96 the subsidized press of the I money power -wielded an Immense : - . influence, deluding the people with i,' *»lse promises and deceiving them by S misrepresentation of the position *U taken by the friends of constitutional ? money. *:f Democratic newspapers have saved S' the people $20,000,000 recently by ex?:- posing the Union Pacific steal and £ forcing the Republican admlnlstra- fe tlon to demand a just settlement of I- the account. The questions which f' we to be discussed for the next tw pf, years are vital. In their correct set i,r-. tlement lies the fate of the nation | '- therefore, the newspapers which be I friended the people should receive '£ the support of the people. to Rods Dr. toe's Nerara a Annie I. Duggan, Skilled Hospital Nurse, Cured by Dr. Greene's Nervura, the Best Cure for Rheumatism and Neuralgia the World Has Ever Known. One of the most skillful trained nurses of this country is Mrs. Annie I. Duggan, of 6 St. Charles Street, Boston, Mass. Her sidvlce and experience as a nurae are worthy of the •reatest consideration on account of her high reputation as a nurse, and her words are especially valuable because of their great encouragement to all classes of sufferers. Mrs. Duggan says: "I was troubled wllih Sciatica for over four months and was treated by three different physicians, but received no relief, and us a last resort my friends advised my trying Dr. Greene's Nervura blood, and nerve remedy, which I did, and in six weeks" I was a well woman. Although it Is four years ago, I have had no return of the trouble. "My sister also was troubled with rheumatism and I advised her to try Dr. Greene's Nervura,which she did, arad received great relief from it. I consider Dr. Greene's Nervura a godsend to me and gladly recommend It." We would say that Mrs. Duggan 'a advice as a nurse is endorsed and approved by physician;!. Dr. Greene's Hervura blood and nerve remedv Is Indeed a wonderful discovery and of Incalculable and inestimable value to the sick everywhere,. It is the surest known cure for rheumatism, neuralgia, headaches, nervous weakness, debility, weak, tired feelings, and all affections of the bhrod and nerves. It has been proved over and over again, in thousands upon thousands of cases, that it does cure, that it makes the sick well. Physicians know of Its great value, for they have seen It perform wonders in restoring health, and they, as well as nurses, recommend it freely to the sick because it is the prescription of the successful physician, Dr. Greene, 148 Scate St., Chicago, III., who can be consulted free in all cases, personally or by letiier. BRIGHT BEDROOMS. Cheerful Efl'ecta »nd Variety of Style In Furnishing. The bedrooms of a small boose should if possible be treated quite differently each one, both as regards the decoration of the walls and the style of the furniture, while everything should contrib ute towurd a bright, cheerfnl effect. For this reason heavy colors should not be used, bat delicate tones, sncb as pink, pale bine, green, ci-eam, golden yellow and white, which always look fresh and cool. Then the window and other draperies should be light and very simple in arrangement, with no thick folds in which the dust may collect, and there should only be sufficient furniture for comfort, nothing superfluous to take up valuable space. Suppose the walls of the first room to be hung with a da:inty green and cream colored cretonne m a small, effective design and the woodwork stained green The "Domestic" Office.

The Buffalo Evening News publishes what purports to be the diary for six days of a baseball umpire. Those who complain that their lives are tame and who want excitement day by day to wake them up should try umpiring baseball a season or two. Lion taming and bullfighting are a dead calm of existence beside the umpire's pleasing tasks. On Monday, according to the veracious tale in the Buffalo News, the umpire "got along pretty well." The captain of one team called him a liar and another fellow shook his fist under his nose, while a hoodlum struck at him with a scantling as b'3 ran for his life out of the gate, but little pleasantries of this sort he rather liked. Tuesday he had both nines around him four deep half the game, and the other half he was dodging "souvenirs from the audience. '' A blow aimed, at him struck a member of one of the teams, and the member accused the umpire of dodging the blow on purpose. Wednesday he threatened the police of the town that f they did not stop 1;he audience from throwing bottles and shoebrusb.es at lim he would give th«i game to the other team, and they promised to stop it ill the game was over. Thursday was a red letter day, there being only one "rumpus." "Friday it rained, thank heaven." Saturday was the downright crowning, jolly day of all. "Men swore, women fainted, dogs barked, and it took 17 policemen ana ;he patrol wagon to save me from the crowd.'' The utmost that the Cuban patriots will concede is that they are willing to buy their independence of Spain. Gen eral Gomez thinks 1lbat $250,000,000 would be about right to pay. He has no doubt an American syndicate would take up a loan for Cuba, raise the mon ey immediately and pay Spain the lump sum cash. Gomez is correct. No nation today will lend anything to Spain. She has gone beyond where her credit is good. But if she would agree to let Cu ba go England or the United States, ei ther one, would at once lend any reasonable sum to the republican government already established on the island, know ing it would be entirely safe. The credit of the struggling Cuban republic is even now better than that of the whole kingdom of Spain. A FLIPPANT HYPNOTIST. We observe that recently at a banquet the health of President McKinley wa drunk standing and in silence. Why •was this thus? It is dead heroes, not living ones, to whose memory a toast is usually drank standing and in silence. Chicago handles a third more wheat In the course of a year than New 5Tork, Boston, Philadelphia and Montreal all together. Milwaukee, Dnluti, Minneapolis and St. Louis are likewise centers of a heavy wheat trade. Among her three collectors of customs duties, English, Russian and Japanese, poor little Korea will not have much left that is not nailed. The desperate state of Spain is shown by the result of her attempt to introduce autonomy into Cuba. It is likely tha the queen regent and Sagasta honestl] endeavored to give Cnba a partial autonomy. At once the tory residents of Havana Sared up and declared that never should autonomy bo enforced on the island. They would have the old regime just as it was or nothing. Rather than see autonomy they would let the island be lost to Spain altogether. It was these torses who incited the hostility to Americans in Havana which resulted in mobs and rioting. He Claims to Teacli the Art In One Lesson.. [Special Corresoondence.] MILWAUKEE, Jan. 18.—The name of. Professor G. "W. Ferguson is not yet inscribed very far up on the rolls of fame, but he has succeeded in attracting the attention of the medical fraternity here most remarkably. He was formerly a drawing teacher in Sheboygan, but now makes a sufficiently good living by"teaching hypnotism in one lesson.": He says it takes an hour to learn it aud that his pupils become as expert as he is. So simple a proposition as this seems hardly worth public attention, especially as the professor himself declares or idmits that "the hypnotism which I practice has no baneful effects, and, what is more, no one can be hypnotized, unless he wants to be." Yet several iracticing physicians of Milwaukee lave been moved to vigorous protest, and the district attorney has been ap- jealed to to prosecute the hypnotic pre;ender. That official declined to move n the matter for the excellent reason that there is no provision of law under which be could act. So the indignant doctors made various affidavits, some of which read curiously enough, and applied to the health commissioner, Dr. Kempster, to interfere on the ground that "Professor" Ferguson was endangering the health of the community. Just how this could be accomplished by so very transparent a pretender as Ferguson is not clear, but the commissioner has interfered, and Ferguson is going away. Dr. J. J. McGovern, one of the protesting physicians, swears that the practice of hypnotism'is Harmful, that the experiments tend to weaken the subjects, and tbi:t a suggestion oi 1 crime made to a subject may be carried out monthii afterward. Dr. Samuel H. Friend also swears that the public exhibition of hypnotism is harmful to the community because the impressions produced tend to spread the idea that some men are possessed of a special force, when, in fact, the hypnotic state may be produced in any one by simply fixing the eyes on an inanimate object. This, then, he argues in bis affidavit, determines that no man has suish a special power, and as a consequence any man who claims to have it or even suggests it through advertising is practicing fraud and doing harm by impressing fear, therefore making law abiding citizenship an impossibility. To aJl this and more of the same sort "Professor" Ferguson remarked easily, if not flippantly: "The health commissioner is evidently a hypnotist. He can make people say what be wants them to. I might stay and fight him, but really it's easier to go elsewhere. Basi ness "is good. I get $25 a lesson and give two or three a day, and Milwaukee is not the only city. There are others." H. P. E- FOE THE GUESTROOM. and polished. On the floor a square of carpet in two shades of green, with a surround of Japanese matting in cream color, will provide quite a luxurious covering, while very uncommon curtains may be made of printed sateen. If • the furniture can be fitted to the room, it will give an air of space, as the odd corners are thus turned to ac count and the center of the room is free Such fitments are somewhat more costly than the ordinary separate pieces, but il made in pine, painted white and kept quite simple in character, the expense •will not be very alarming, and the result will be decidedly pleasing. For a second room a pink wall paper will insure a pretty contrast with whitf paint, draperies of muslin and a carpel in a deep shade of rose color. The fur niture to look the best against such a background will be in the Sheraton style and mahogany or rosewood finish not fitted to the room, but each pied separate. In a third room a very good effec may be gained by using plain pale blue paper for the walls and having a pretty stenciled frieze in a soft shade of cedar color, with woodwork painted and flat ted to resemble cedar wood. -.

Mr. McKinley goes into the new year with nothing accomplished for the country or for mankind. There is no Cuban recognition, there is a reduction in cot- ion factory wages, there is no reciprocity, and the nation has only the farmer and a European shortage to thank for what measure of prosperity has been restored.
