In order to gain temporary success It is willing to array neighbor against neighbor, to incite riot, per haps to cause bloodshed. Logansport has escaped agltatinn of this sort but tho Pharos Is not entitled to any credit for it. In an attempt to hold the Catholic vote It hae resorted to this disreputable proceeding. What has Frank Klstler got to do with the city campaign that he should make an affidavit that ho Is not an A. P. A? What has Walter Osmer got to do with the city campaign and what bualneBS is he in that ho would be injured by a report that he was an A. P. A. ? These affidavits aro so thin that the scheme behind them is exposed and if every Catholic in the city does not condemn it at the polls the Journal will bo very much disappointed. THE Pharos, in its comments on the election ticket contract Is exceedingly little. The Pharos has been the olty and county official paper for years and the Journal has novor commented on its charges because they were established by law.. The Journal was for- tuoato enough to get the city printing and has been paid the legal rates. This fact the Pharos uees for contempt- able insinuation. The Journal has a large exchange list and finds among Its exchanges no dishonorable news, paper except the Pharos. The Pharos never tells thB truth when it can avoid it. It Is unfair, mean, disgusting. It attempted to put the peopla into the bondage of the gas combine. It now attempts to incite neighbor against neighbor. It is a public enemy. It la false, malicious, and treacherous. THE Fort Wayne Electric Light Company, by one of Its members, Charles S. Knight, formerly of this city, has enjoined the city from putting In its own electric light plant. This will carry the matter over until after the election and if a council Batisfaotory to the Fort Wayne people IB elected there will bo anothar five year contract at $100 per light. THK Journal has received a copy of the Exponent, a populist paper published at Terre Haute. In its editor* lal columns It says: "Mrs. Lease gave the Exponent a fraternal call yesterday evening." This is pretty tough on Mary Ellen. She la not "one of tho boys" and ought not to be making "fraternal" calls. ARE you a democrat? Yes? Well don't indorse the Read-McAllister knock-out and the f?as combine ticket nominated by the Pharos. Show that you ar» above indorsing such work. THE DEMOCRATS HAVE FIVE MEMBEBS OF THB COUNCIL AND WITH THE MAYOR'S VOTE CAN CONTROL THE BODY.—Pharos, M»y 6th, 1898. . GEORGE W. JONES. He Was the First United States Senator from Iowa. Thr- Grout Tart lie riaycil ID tho Dovel. opmont ot the North we»t-0no of tho Sooomln In thu Jfamou» clll»-<!™voM Jiutil. On April r> ficn. (icorg-e W. Jones was the tf lu " 4t of thu s-tnte of Iowa, anil n recL-pliiui was temlorod him by tin; lotfishitiiro in thi; capital at DOS MohH-s. Thu occasion wus hir, nimj- ti,'thbinlKl;iy, but us ho stopped from his houMj at Uubuquc to boffin his journey to Dos Moines there wits noue umoug-'the group of citi/.uns delegated to uttend him as a pmird of honor whose stop was more light, or whose staturi! more erect than that of this venerable warrior. Time has dealt most leniently with this Hired man, who was a power in thu United States senate tit a. clay whon most men now ulivc Were still unborn. lie was the contemporary of Clay and Wcb-ster and licnton, and the friend nnd associate of all of thorn. Ho was the first Caucasian to found a permanent home in what is now the city of Dubuque; more than that, he was thu first white settler of tho stato of Iowa, nud he was the first man chosen to represent tlie state in the halls of the national senate. His early lifo was distinctly that of the pioneer, and to no small extent was ho responsible for the early development of the great northwest. Gen. Jones first wont to congress in 1S34 as a delegate from Michigan territory, then including all of what is now embraced in tho states of Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Nebraska. Hi; was at this time living in Dubuque, its solitary whiti; inhabitant, and the first actual resilient ot what (subsequently became the stato of Iowa. Ho was rceleutcd delegate twice, imd resigned in ISH'J to accept tho position of surveyor general of Icwa territory, tendered him by President Van Unren. While in congress he was ever active in the interest of the embryo empire which he represented. lie secured t!;o division of Michigan torri- OEN. OEOllQK W.

Jones was second to Jonathan Cillc>y In the famous fatal duel fought by him with Graves, of Kentucky, in 1S38, and which provoked such a storm of disaproval that stringent anti-dueling laws wcro at once adopted and tho cixlo received Its death blow in America. Although not n stranger to the field of honor—he had participated in six duels, once as principal—Gen. Jones protested strongly against acting f«r his colleague. This was not BO much because of any antipathy on his port to the code but on political grounds. If Gen, Jones had not used his persuasive powers on Stephen A. Douglas in behalf of Dubuque at one time tho history of the city might havo been different. In 1840 iv bill was pcndinR- in the Illinois legislature for tho construction of a railroad, tho Illinois Central, "from Cairo to Galena, with a branch to Chicago." Stephen A. Douglas was the father of tho bill. Jones BOW the opportunity for Dubuque and •ho used all his influence with the "Little Giant" to effect a change in the •wording so it would read "from Cairo, 111., to Dubuque, In., via Galena," Douglas was prevailed on and from tho day of the passage of the bill tho •commercial importance of Dubuque was assured, while, on the other hand, Galena, which had been tho commercial center of the northwest, then began to lose Its supremacy. The sturdy voternn is living out his days with his two daughters atapleas- ant homo in Dubuque. Ho has the looks and bearing of one much younger than ho is, and bids fair to round out the century, Senator* Whom Term* Expire. The terms of thirty senators expire with the present session of congress. Fourteen democrats will vacate their Beats and sixteen republicans. Among the more prominent members of tho senate whose term of service is approaching expiration arc Messrs. Chandler, Cullom, Dolph, Frye, Harris, Iloar, Manderson, McPhersou, Morgan, Eansom, Washburn and Wolcott. Tho states in which vacancies occur aro Arkansas, South Carolina, Louisiana, West Virginia, Wyoming, New Hampshire, Texas, Georgia, Illinois, Rhode Island, Oregon, Maine, Tennessee, Delaware, Massachusetts, Virginia, Kentucky, Nebraska, Kansas, Michigan, New" Jersey, Alabama. South Dakota, Montana, North Carolina, Idaho, Mississippi, Minnesota, Iowa and Colorado. The Center of Populntlon. Tho limestone monument bearing the title used as a headline is located in Dccatur county, Ind. Tho center of population in tho United States, as located by the census of 1890, is in the above-named county, 30 mile* east of Columbus, one of the citios ol Iloosier- dom. This is tho second time in the history of our country that the center of population has been indicated by marking it with a monument. The first was the spot located by the census of, 1810. The "monument," which may etill bo eecn, is simply a flat stone imbedded in the soil -10 miles northwest O t VVashlngton, D. C., bearing these three words: "Center of Populnti^n." PROFITABLE CURRENCY. Thro"Kl> It" LOKB uiui Destruction the Oov ernmont HUN Oillnntl IMUItOQN. Tho fractional currency of tlie United States was the most profitable form of money ever issued by tho federal authorities. All of it that w;is lost or destroyed, and this is estimated in round figures at ?8,000,000, but is probably more, is figured as a clear gain to the government. The total amount of tho currency omitted, including reissues, was S3C8,- 720,079.SI. The total amount redeemed aggregates J35:i,-I47,(!.'iU.. r >0. This would apparently leave outstandingi?If>,27'^,- 4.13,01, but in the last annual debt statement tho outstanding amount is sot down as 80,900,50-1.Oi This amount is merely an estimate of the authorities, but clearly Illustrates the fact that $8.271,938.39 has beun marked off to profit and loss. Tho government still stands ready to redeem its fractional currency and 1ms no intention of repudiating u.ny of it, although congress has authorized tho marking olt of 58,000.000. Very littlo of it is now turned in to the sub-treasuries, in consequence of the rarity of certain issues and tho fact that largo quantities remain in the hands of collectors, who would not part with their specimens for ten times the face value. There was redeemed last year exactly $2,358 worth of this profitable currency, and so accurately are tho accounts of the treasury department kept that tho exact amount of each denomination destroyed can be ascertained. They wcro us follows: Three cents, $3.40; fivo cents, JJ8.4S; ten cents, *02.0S: fifteen cents,?50.1I; twenty-five cents,?!,005.42, and fifty cents, $1,173.50, Fragments of bills are, of course, redeemed in proportion, which accounts for the apparent impossibility of redeeming total amounts that are not multiples of tlie, face value of tho notes. Fractional currency was a feature of our money from August 1, ISii'-, when the first issue was authorized, until I-'ebruary 15, 1870. when the hist or fifth issue ceased. The emission of it therefore covered a period of fourteen years, and it is eighteen years since the last notes wore issued. Considering- the length of time since- the government discontinued the issue of fractional currency tho amount ou> standing is enormous, greater by far than any other form of the public debt, or for that matter all forma of the public debt unredeemed from the foundation of the republic down to 18fi2, when the legal tcndor notes were authorized. It is not likely now that more than $50,000 of fractional currency will ever be presented for redemption, so that the total profit to the government will in the end amount to fully 515,000,000 from its issue. A curious fact about the presentation of fractional notes for redemption is tho larfi'e proportion that spurious bills bear to the total. Last year when but $3,958 worth was redeemed, counterfeit fractional bills to tho amount of $22S were turned into the treasury and destroyed. The proportion is very nearly 8 per cent., which illustrates two things—first, how extensively the fractional currency was imitated, and secondly, the tenacity with which persons who had been taken in by tho bad money cluii£ to the hopc..of eventually obtaining its value,—N. Y. Herald. TIME-WORN NAMES. The Euphonizing of Some of Oar Hard and HurBli American Word*. An Englishman who had been uttering some vigorous opinions upon Aineri- can taste in naming places as expressed in such appellations as Tombstone, Bumblebee, Flag-staff, Dead-Horse Canon and others, concluded his onslaught with a half-apologetic laugh and a good-tempered: "But after all, I don't' suppose it matters much. Some of those names will bo changed deliberately, as the Inhabitants come to think them ridiculous, and most of the rest will be timeworn into something better after a century or so." "Time-worn?" queried an American listener. "Yes, time-worn. They would be witli us, and I should suppose they would bo with you," said the amiable ttriton. Then seeing that he was not fully understood, ho added, "There's Bloody Gulch, for instance. The name is harsh and not easily spoken, as well as hideous in its suggestions. People will hurry it and clip it and run it together and toss it from mouth to mouth, and it will end by being something else. If England had had a Bloody Gulch, named in the time of the invading Danes, do you suppose it would still be Bloody Gulch to-day? Not at all! It might be Uluggles or it might bo Blutch. The one thing sure is that it wouldn't bo gulch, and it wouldn't bo bloody!" Everybody lang-hed at a sug-gestion which scorned to partake of the nature of tho word-compressing experiments in Alice in Wonderland, Nevertheless, it was founded on solid British experience. "English names are as smooth as nebbles at tjio bottom of an English Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report Baking Powder PURE river," snicl OIK? omnieilt writer. "They have bei-n rolled on the tide of speech till the edges are :ill worn away." He cited especially the names of bn- R-llsh rivers, and callud attention to t!ie liir£-o number ot them which nro of but one syllabic, and that syllable frequently most expressive, quaint or melodious, with a cluirm in the mere sound. Running over mpidly those of which he thought at the moment, lie named the Lea, the Tey, tl\c Ouse, \Vcar, Cam, Taw, Wye, Tcig-n, Blytli, Rye, Till, Don, Dart and Dec. Beside these arc the Exe, the Yare and the Alne—all unfamiliar to Yankee ears: yet from the little Exe, the. English Exeter, Exmouth, Exinoor— the scene of "Lorna Doone"—tog-ether with its seventeen American namesakes, all take their names. From the Yarc our Yarmouth is named, and its famous English original, upon whose sands lay the fascinating stranded boat inhabited by Little Em'ly in "David Copperfleld." And how many sturdy descendants of the Pilgrims have ever even heard the name of the little Plym, at whose mouth lay the English town the name of which, like that of stagnant old Boston of the Lincolnshire fens, has risen to newer and wider honors in the New Eng-land? Our harsher and longer names may bo time-worn to advantage. Indeed, here and there, we can see the process beginning, oftenest with a name cf Indian orig-in too cumbrous for our tongues. Lake Winnipiscogee, with the spelling of which school children onee had such rtifliculty, was once doubtless pronounced according- to that spelling-, ' Then the sound changed, while the written syllables remained; and now we see it oftenest written as it is spoken—Winnepesaulcee. There is ampleroora inourpeoR-raphy for simplifying and abbreviating, though it is also true that some of the longest names are easily spoken and are pleasant to the ear; but iheso have not rough edges to wear off, and we may hope' that the "tide of. speech" will carry them down unspoiled through the centuries. Let us keep the Monongahcla, the Susquehanna and the .luniata in their pride; and surely not even the Hashing Dart nor the lapsing De,« have sung themselves into a language more sweetly than. the Smvaneo river.— Youth's Companion. PLENTY OF WATER. Its Untold Value In tho ri)T»lcal Economy of Mankind. When the distribution of land and water wasmade, and tlie two elements were so adjusted that there were three parts water to one of land, an important signiiiuanue attached to the case. There are many persons who persist in believinfr that the same rule holds Rood in tho composition of the humau body, and that many of the ills that flesh is heir to are caused by trying to alter the proportions, or, what amounts to the same thing, ncfrlectiag to supply the body with a sufficient amount of clear -water to keep up the relative conditions. Because there is so much written and said about contaminated water .supplies, and the dancer to health from drainage that in viirin-us forms creeps into our hydrant pipes, thousands of persons rcfrftin from using water us a beverage, and either g-o without drinking altogether, or use some of the many popular substitutes. Almost all of these have more or less objectionable features, many are positively injurious, and some of them are nothing more or less than slow poisoning, only requiring a sufficient length of time to do their deadly work. Physicians and scientists who hare given the subject intelligent and exhaustive study, tell us that there is no beverage in the world that will take the place of clear soft water. Filtered water is always best, if filtering material is clean and of tlie proper sort. If it is not of the right kind it is much better to use the water without filtering. There is a great deal of useless work and more useless tiUlc about the efficiency of various appliances for purifying- water. There are attachments for the hydrant pipe, with strainers and screens more or less complicated and costly, and requiring various and sundry adjustments to make them work properly. From these apparently simple affairs there are others carefully arranged on what might be called a sliding-scale of prices, ranging- well up toward three figures. Manyof these costly complications are not only practically valueless, so far as purifying water is concerned, but an actual menace to health, in that they furnish a. comfortable and safe breeding- ground for millions of germs thafc are merely halted in their onward course, alid kept in the luxurious propagating beds of the strainers and strata that fill the body of the much-lauded filter which is heralded as an indispensable part of every well- regulated household. For Jt stands to reason, that unless the filtering matter be removed almost, daily, the dirt and disease germs will lodge there, and gradually work their \v;iv through the crevices nnd Ijetwccn the particles of sand and charcoal, nnd with their enormous fertility soou multiply into tens of millions. \Ve can see the. spaces and openings in the? filtering matter, and if the deadly bacilli are so small that only a powerful magni- fyinjr-glass can reveal them, why should they not, at their own sweet will, wander calmly on through what, are to them lofty archways and wide thoroughfares, or float gently .on in craft of their own choosing-, until they drop lightly into our goblets and are absorbed into our systems to do their deadly worst until we die, victims to so-called "scientific" imposition and misleading. Jt is perfectly safe to assert that the average filter isabsolutely worthless as far as keeping out the most dangerous forms of bacteria is concerned. It strains out and stops midway the grosser impurities, themselves frequently of the most harmless character, and lets the enemy come in at will. There is probably no safe way of purifying water other than boiling it, and that at a temperature as high as possible. Mere simmering- will not do. Arid when water is boiled and cooled to- :ni agreeable degree it may be taken in quantities. From one to two quarts daily is not too much. It'dissolves acid and alkaline accumulations, reduces feverish conditions, promotes digestion and assists the circulation, and maybe taken freely at all times except within an hour or so- after meals. Plenty of good, cool, soft or boiled water is one of the most valuable beverages for preserving a fresh and youthful appearance; and if one can have this Heaven-sent luxury to use for bathing as well us drinking, there is- at least one good tiling in one's life to* be thankful for.— N.
