As a result the old council has been retired In full ae far at) the democracy controlled It, The work was not done Openly and some of the beet defenders of the people were unwittingly tools In the work. Every argument except the real one was used.

Is was not the deceptive cry of Erie avenue. Beam voted against that and he was defeated. Peters voted for it and nine out of ten of his constltu. a In favor ot It. a conspiracy to get to get a new deal an the attempt to oppress the people. Democracy was caught napping and has been disgraced by the base uses !t has been put to. The new eandi- dates may not be bad but they are the beneficiaries of all that is hostile to the best interests of the citizens. EDITOR AND SCIENTIST.

Up in the San Iter- uardino mountains he cluims to have discovered a fountain of youth in which the infirmities of ago may be washed away. Mr. Medill's own experience lends credibility to tho claim, and his political oncmies, who would gladly have seen him dead years ago, are beginning to fear that he may live forever. Ou a corner lot stands his large attractive 1 buJJ a.ud white frame house with brick and granite foundations, corner trimmings and stone steps. A circular south veranda extends from front to side, around which climb roses that breathe a welcome of perfume. Date palms, fan palms and magnolias ornament the green imfcnced lawn, while pepper trees with deep green pendant brunches like the weupinj,' willow, and with clusters of red berries, line the street front. The entering visitor is shown into a spacious front room filled with sunshine. Tho walls arc white satin finished and the ceiling gold starred. A warm red rup and bamboo matting cover the floor. There is white silken furniture with delicate blue tracings, and a richly cushioned couch stands b.y the broad fireplace glowing with hot coals, and a dash of blue drapery encircles a gold-framed painting. The woodwork looks I searched my library, but in cyclopedias, scientific and philosophical works, . 1 could find nothing on the subject. I went to the leading book- storo !n Chicago and asked a man who knows a little about everything that is in print or ever has been published. lie said lie know of nothing- but would try and find something. A month later I went in to see him and he said he had conferred with Mr. Pool of the Hcwberry library, but they hud found nothing. A few months later he met me on the straet and told me he had written to his linn's agents in New York, London, Paris and Berlin, but they had sent nothing. Several years passed, and whenever I would see the man I would ask: .'Have yon found that book for me,' and he would say: 'No, not yet.' Last June a package of five books came to my office in Chicago and this is one of them." Ho produced a small 12 mo. red covered volume witli the gold lettered subject: "How to Prolong Life," by Charles W. D. Laey Evans, M. 11. C. S. E., and on the title page was the publishers' imprint Baillicre Tindall & Co., Paris and Madrid, with a subheading: An inquiry into the Cause of old age Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report y Baking _ Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE AS the visitor took leave, thinking report wrong in its estimate of Mr. Medill's ag-e, he ventured to ask him how old he was.

VAUGHN announces bis candidacy for Mayor in this issue of the Journal. Mr. Vaughn has lived In Loganeport too long to require any extended mention. After serving four and one-half years in the army he came to Logansport and engaged in the lumber business. He was several times elected to the city council by the republicans of the second ward and served the city well In that body. AB a member of the Finance Com. mitteehe was instrumental In placing the city on a sound bus!cess basis after many years of loose management, He is a good, careful business man and would fill the office with credit. THE DEMOCRATS HAVE FIVE MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL AND WITH THE MAYOR'S VOTE CAN CONTROL 'THE BODY.—Pharoi, May 6th, 1892. JOSEPH UKDILL. whiter In contrast with the dark red portieres hanging- at the hall and back parlor entrance. A quick etep descended the stairs, the red portieres parted and Mr. Medill stood between them, his tall figure accentuated by a long- plum-colored silk loung-ing- robo. He miulo mo feel at home immediately and in the conversation which followed he said: "I live here nine months of the year for my wife's health as well as my own. My horoa at Altadena next to Andrew Me- Nally's was burned in November, '93, due to the carelessness of a servant." He rubbed his hands together a moment, then, holding them out before mo, said: "My fingers have been a little gouty and are swollen some still. That is a bad one yet," and he moved the second finger on MB left hand like a toggle joint, "and this thumb is bad. But they are improving now so I can write well. I have been trying a simple remedy that has been limbering mo up." Then ho explained that far up in the San Bernardino mountains, which rise ten thousand feet above Los Ang-elcs, is a reservoir that accumulates pure snow water.so soft that just to lave the hands and face in it refreshes. To an obscure hostelry near these waters Mr. Medill repairs every few weeks to enjoy {410 rare dry air as well as for the healing- water, and is constantly supplied with the water at his home here, having it brought down to him. It is not idle caprice that has led him to its use, but a scientific principle that ho has been studying- for years. This is how he tells it: "The virtue of this water is not in its mineral properties, but in their absence, its absolute purity, in particular its freedom from lime. That is the substance,." says he, "that gets into the capillaries of the joints and stops the lubricating process that keeps the joints limber. It obstructs the capil- MK. J!EDn,I/8 HOME IN LOS AS'GELES. lary cells of the hair so tlie pigment* Can no longer find their way through and it becomes colorless—white. Little particles of lime get into the cells of the stomach, of the bladder and kidneys and cause every form of indigestion and Bright's disease; they get into the heart and weaken its action. In fact, the whole process of growing old and wearing out is due to a Buborabundance of this white mineral subbtance—a llminjr up till finally a, man lies down a brittle mummy A hundred years before hia time." "How did this theory occur to you?" "Ten years ago I began to study why men grow old and wear out so soon. I asked my doctor, and he only told mo that it was the inevitable law of no- tare. But I wanted » scientific cause; life "That book shows that lime is tho obstructionist of life. There are many things in it that I call fads and mistakes, for ho narrows down the list of diet foods to an impracticable limit, saying, for instance, that meat and bread are to be mvoidcd for the lime they contain. But it shows that by far tho R-reater portion of lime taken into the system in by the water we drink. Good gracious! look at your tea kettle; it is coated with lime. Ask any engineer what is the trouble with his boilers periodically and he will tell .you incrustations of lime. Why in Chicago our water taken six miles out in the lake, one of the best supplies any city has, contains nineteen grains of lime to the gallon, and this LOR Ang-eles water has thirty grains. "It is the drinking process that gradually fills up the system with lime. In the child it is beneficial for it goes to make bone, but after middle ag-e the mineral accretion is superabundant. All my life I have been taking- in more lime than I have been expelling. Now I am in a measure reversing tho process, for I began to use distilled water in Chicago last summer. But here I have this soft snow water which I drink copiously and it is dissolving the lime out of my system. Every day throws off some excess. 1 can feel the effects all over me. The rheumatic swelling around the knee is subsiding; I can walk better; the shoulders and the muscles of my back are becoming- free from the pains that made it impossible for me to sleep without rolling from side to side. I traveled over Europe visiting- all the celebrated water cures, and wont to the Arkansas Hot Springs—no relief! I tried every known remedy, scientific and quack—no relief, till I began to use pure water. Now for the first time in many years I can lie down and sleep all night. My digestion is better; I am practically renewing my youth." "Do doctors recommend this generally?'.' He smiled. "There are no fees, nothing for tho doctors in prescribing pure water. They are the last ones to proclaim such a simple remedy." The latest subject Mr. Medill has taken up to investigate is bacteria as the cause of universal disease, and he showed nn excerpt from his paper reflecting the interest ho has in this subject. "But," he said, with a quizzical look from keen gray eyes, "I would not give you tho impression that I devote all my time to what may seem to be fads and theories. I fill in my spare time with them. When out here I am freed from the routine of office duties, so I take up these things, not exactly for a pastime, as I would not undergo the labor of study if it were not with a view of benefiting somebody. "I have been lazy for several days with a little touch of the grip and have been working 1 at my correspondence and making a dispatch for my paper." There were slight inkstains on his fingers. "Do you write by hand?" "Yes; it iu inconvenient to have a stenographer in the house all the time to do letter writing, for I always correct letters and have them rewritten. I never got accustomed to systematic dictation of newspaper articles. I think it tends to verbosity. When I am in my office in Chicago I usually write out the heads of an article and sketch a plan for it with short notes, ] then read it off slowly to a stenographer, filling in and rounding it up. But out here it is just about as easy for me to do it all by hand." From the inconsequential way that Mr. Medill speaks of his daily labors one would hardly think that at a distance of over two thousand miles he closely watches and directs his metropolitan paper. Every mail carries letters to his trusted lieutenants, while several times each week the wires vibrate with an editorial dispatch. These are only diversions for his restless encrirv., the order think the commandership will come out west this year, and if it does there isn't a man west of Gettysburg that knows what gunpowder smells like when it goes oil that will not be in favor of elevating Col. Lawler to the position. In casting about for a candidate the big- G. A. 11. men in Illinois became convinced that no man in ,\ COL. TIIOMA8 G. LAWJ.EB. the west would raise more enthusiasm than would this veteran of Kockford. And so it was that the call which asked his permission to head the '1*4 ticket with his name was headed by such men as ex-Gov. Rich and ex-tiov. Og-]e.sb.y and signed by Department Commander Blodgctt, as well as by all of the state grand army officers and by half a hundred of the most prominent veterans of Illinois. Kevins post No. 1, of which Col. Lawler has been commander for a 'natter of twenty-six years, will send a force to Pittsburgh that will work like grenadiers for their glorious leader and leave no effort untried to win the day. The colonel is every inch of him a self-made man. The high position he has attained in life is due to his rare and rufrged honesty, his unquestionable courage and his exceptional ability. Although English born, he has a backbone of American principles as stiff and as strong as the Washington monument. His army service began when ho enlisted as a three- months' man in the Nineteenth Illinois infantry in April, 1801. On September 17 following- lie rcculistcd for three years as a private in Company E of the Nineteenth, and he saw, with this undaunted regiment, all the fierce strife and fire through which the great army of the Cumberland passed. On September 17, 1804, he was honorably discharged. His rank at that time was sergeant. On his discharge he returned to Eockford, and has ever since made that city his home. LAID ON THE DOGS.' A Ch»r»cterUtlo Demorratlo ErpL»»tian ot Indn«trl»l RetrogreMlon. The agricultural departmen t at Washington, in its report on tho wool-growing industry, attributes "the check on the progress of this valuable industry" largely to "the ravages of dogs." To show how roracious tho dogs have been it is stated that the number of sheep declined from 4?,273,5&S January 1, 1883, to *3,048,017 January 1, J894. The loss is 2,325,586. The dogs have not only destroyed tho natural increase, but have raided upon the old flocks to the tune of more than two and a. quarter millions. They were not so hungry In 1883. In that year from January 1 to December SI the number of sheep grew from 118,121,290 to 125,909.204, an increase of W,787,974. This increase would probably have happened again if the dogs had not been drawn into the great famine circle. Even tbe dogs of the country show evidence that they are suffering for lack of employment. But this Is not the most remarkable part of the showing. The doffs have entered the financial arena, and succeeded in greatly reducing the price of their beloved mutton. One .year ago last January the average value per head of all the sheep of the country was f2. GO; last Now Year's it was down to JUJ3.. .Ifl.th££ame time the value of all the flecks of the United States fell from tl'!.VJ09,204 to f39,lS(i,110, a loss to tho' farmers of SoG.723,154. This seems like an anomalous result, for- a decrease of supply is usually accompanied by an iucreaio of demand! and a consequent enhancement of value. Here in a complete reversal off this great economic law. But the re-i versal does not stop with sheep. It may be seen also ia tbe arena of human labor. For instance, wages are much lower than they were, and vet the demand for labor has fallen off so gre»t-i ly that one-third of the working- people, of the country cannot get anything to do at any price. An.d notwithstanding- the great lowering of the price of sheep by these dogs of such profound financial wisdom, they can iret precious lit-, tie mutton to eat. The conclusion is irresistible that the. dogs have entered politics and joined the great free trade party. They found confronting them "a condition," not a "theory," and so they took 'hold of the question in a practical way.' Like thei college professor whose salary go«» on whether the cost of living- is cheap or dear, and who looks upon the lowering" of the price of an English-made pair of pantaloons a quarter or a half dollar by the removal of the tariff as the soln-. tion of the highest economical principle of which ho has any conception, the- average dog cares nothing about wages | if he can'only effect » cheapening of. his mutton. And, to paraphrase a fa-i mous saying of ex-President Harrison, 1 he has found that a cheap coat of wool! conceals a cheap sheep under the wool.: —Troy Times. A Drawback to Country Life.
