THE REPUBLIC: SUNDAY. MARCH 17, 1901.
For a Cough n as Coughing. You
know it just as well as wc do. Your
throat always feels worse after a. hard
coughing spell. And yet you fuss along with
your cough, trusting to vinegar and molasses,
or sugar and lemon, or some new-fangled medi
cine you have just read of. getting no better,
or just a trifle worse each day.
Why waste time ? Why run the slightest
risk of causing asthma, bronchitis, loss of voice,
or why make the road so easy for Consumption?
just keep in mind this one thing

Love for Baby McKee.
Washington, March 16.-"Xotwithstand-lns
General Harrison's aristocratic lineage
and hte exalted station as President of the
United States," said an old newspaper man
to-day, "he was ons of the most democratic
ncn I ever met, either In public or private
Ire. He was the same with ono man as
Kith another. In spite of the fact that one
may have been poor and insignificant and
the other rich and Influential. He was a
thorough gentleman under all circum
stances and conditions and was courteous
and considerate to everybody who had bus
iness with him.
"Apparently cold and austere In manner,
he was, in fact, one of the warmest-hearted
of men. This characteristic wns demon
strated in the most practical way when
ever any of those he loved met with any
loss or family affliction. In such cases
his sympathy was as warm, sincere and
consoling as that of a tender wife or of a
loving mother. Moreover, he was a thor
oughly domestic man, and preferred tho
simple joys of the family hearth and homo
to the greatest pomp and ceremony of pub
His Love for Ilia Grandson.
"His love and devotion to hi3 little grand
son, Baby McKee. was remarkable. He was
almost as much wrarped up in that boy as
a mother with her first born. It was a mat
ter of comment during his residence in tho
"White Houbo that young Ben had more ac
tual control over the President than the
most Influential member of his Cabinet;
that is. In case it became a question of
choice as to which should have his first at
tention. When not engaged with the cares
of state, he would romp and play with
'Baby McKee' and take him out for a
walk whenever the opportunity offered.
Little Ben was) a most autocratic playmate,
and was most exacting In his demands on
his venerable and dignified grandfather.
That tho latter happened to be the Chief
Magistrate made no difference to the boy.
But all that's been told before, and is well
known to everybody who reads the news
papers. "Tho point Is that General Harrison was
thoroughly democratic in his daily dealings

AFTER-EFFECTS OF GRIP
Are Often More Serious Than (lie Grip
Physicians and erlp sufferers alike are
agreed that the after effects of the disease
are more to be feared than the acute at
tack; you can never be sure that the disease
has left the system completely.
LaGrippe naturally attacks the weakest
organ and Jeaes It still weaker.
Not only pneumonia, consumption, bron
chitls and throat trouble follow tho grip,
but kidney, liver and stomach are troubles
Just as liable to result, provided any of
these organs should happen to be in a weak
condition at the time of attack.
To get rid of the grip germ, to get it en
tirely out of the system and blooj, few rem
edies are so good and none safer than Stu
art's Catarrh Tablets; they are not a com
pound of powerful and dangerous drugs, but
a pleasant, palatable, convenient remedy in
tablet form, composed of the wholesome
antiseptic principles of Eucalyptus bark,
blood root and similar germicide remedies
which are perfectly wholesome and harm
less to the system, but death to the germs
of grip, catarrh, consumption and diseases
of the throat and air passages.
Mrs. Chas. Gormley of Memphis says:
Last winter an attack of the grip left me
with weak back, a persistent cough and
loss of flesh and appetite, and after using
various remedies for several months with
little or no Improvement I finally bought a
E0 cent package of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets
at my drug store and as they were pleasant
and convenient to take I used them at all
times of day or night and I was astonished
to secure such fine results from so pleasant
and convenient medicine. In two weeks
my cough disappeared, my appetite return
ed. I Improved In 'flesh and color and no
one would now think that I had ever had
such a thing as the grip.
My druggist told me he' sold more of Stu
art's Catarrh Tablets, for the cure of grip.

during his public and private career have
been strongly impressed with that fact.
While lie was President he took many
long railroad trips to various parts of the
country. Including the famous 10,060 mile
trip to the Pacific Coast.
How He Treated .Vempaper Men.
"Newspaper men accompanied him on all
the trips of a. public character, and he made
It a rule that they should always be con
sidered members of his party and treated
Just like all the others Cabinet Ministers,
Generals of the army. Admirals of the na
vyIt made no difference who. He always
made it a point to inform vlstlng commit
teemen from cities desiring to entertain
him that the newspaper men were mem
bers of his personal party, and must not be
discriminated against In any way In the
arrangements. Thus it happened that the
correspondents were alwavs provided with
carriages In the processions and had .promi
nent seats near the head of the banquet ta
ble. "But It was in the hospital trains on the
road that General Harrison showed his true
democratic character. ,ln the dining car
there were seats for only four persons at
the Pesldent's table. In order to make ev
erybody feel perfectly at home General
Harrison made it a practice to change his
guests at each meal. In that way every
member of the party had an opportunity
to break bread with the President. The
newspaper men were always Included in
this arrangement, and each had his turn
of breakfasting or dining with the Presi
dent and his wife. also. If she happened to
be of the party, which was frequently the
Frequent Gncili at White llonse.
"Members of the journalistic fraternity
were also frequent guests at the Wnlte

tration, and several of them have dined
there more than once with him and his fam

itors and leading journalists, but of the
, humbler and less well-known members of
i the craft, those who came In contact with
the President in their nrofesslonal duties of
acquainting the public with the affairs of
"Ex-President Harrison was a great walk
er, and did more walking through the streets
of this city than probably any other Presi
dent, with the possible exception of General
Grant. Although bis favorite walk was
down past the white lot to the monument
grounds, whero there were comparatively
few persons on the streets, he frequently
wandered out Connecticut avenue and on
other much-frequented thoroughfares. It
was no uncommon thing for him to stroll
out of tho White House grounds, down
Pennsylvania avenue to the Capitol and
back, mingling unmolested In the crowd on
that thoroughfare during the busiest hours
of the day. He was recognized by nearly
every one, but was not Interfered with hi
the least, not even by the most Importunate
office seeker. It was generally understood
that he was out for a constitutional, and
did not desire company."
Carried It Out and Then Fled the
Some of the ornamental waterspouts on
old St. Giles's Church, in the Camberwell
district of London, were so venerable that
they were crumbling away, and a local
knight of tho chisel was duly called In to
carve new ones. Apparently he received no
instructions as to what the new figure?
tjuuuia oe, dui was leit to use nis own judg
ment, and that was where the powers that
be at St. Giles's made a step that added
to the gayety of nations.
The stonemason evidently had strange
Ideas about the fitness of things. He hud
also strong political leanings, his opinions
lrdorslng the Liberal party In England
rather than the Conservatives. Here he
saw an opportunity to glorify his favorite
statesmen and humiliate those of whose
rollcy he disapproved, and he did It. One
of the gargoyles had been fashioned as an
angel's head, and this the artist replaced
with the familiar features of Gladstone,
endowing tho great Premier with a pair
of wings. Where had been a dragon of evil
mien he placed the face of Mr. Chamber
lain, eyeglass and all, not caring to com
pliment thia gentleman, as the picture
shows. The enterprising artist completed
his work by placing upon various other
waterspouts the physiognomies of Lord
Salisbury. Lord Randolnh Churchill and
The peculiar nature of the stonemason's
handiwork was not noticed at first, but
when the attention of the vestrymen of St.
Giles's was finally called to this fearful and
wonderful array of gargoyles they were
naturally horrified. They sought for the
stonemason, to take him to task, only to
learn that, dreading the wrath to come, ho
had taken passage for New York.
This muscular paganism, this Bense of
animal vigor and warmth, gives to Kip
ling's creations that last material embodi
ment which has already been so admirably
begun by his sensuous painting, his com
mand of movement. As he himself says:
"The smell is entirely real." How much
of our sympathy with Terence Mulvnney
depends on our admiration for his brawny
prowess, his slugging power, his prize
fighting 'gift; and how much of our en
thusiasm for Kipling's battle-pieces, 'his
skirmishes in the Soudan, the Afghan
Hills or the Malay Islands, depends on the
same thing worship of the animal man!
These is much that Is wholesome In this,
but much that is base, too, writes Charles
Johnston in the Literary Era. The present
realization of Kipling's ideal in China Is
filling with disgust all that is best in the
civilized world, and, we may add, is mak
ing the savage world thank heaven it Is
not civilized. Adoration of the brute is a
good thing within limits; but it is only
after w nan thns limit that wa hpvln
our human history, much of which is to
Kipling a sealed dook.
Therefore it is that bis genius shows to
best advantage in the jungle, among bears
and wolves, black leopards and sambhur
deer. There he Is free to forget our hu
man bonds, to give the rem to his animal
magnetism, his worship of the brute in mo
tion, his splendid nd vivid sense of color.1

HOW TO TRAIN A DOG.
Be Firm, but Not Harsh, When
Teaching Him Tricks.
Did you ever think that puppies are really
much, more "Intelligent and clever than
babies? "No child goes to .school before tho
age of o, but puppies start in on the their
education at the tender age of 5 weeks.
The choice of a dog Is the first thing to
consider. If jou live In the country a
watchdog is desirable, and St. Bernards.
mastitis and Newfoundlands are In this
class. Although small, the fox terrier is
better .suited to the country than to be
cooped up in a city house; he Is so active
If you want an affectionate. Intelligent
pet for the city, you cannot do better than
to choose a King Charles spaniel, a French
bulldog, a setter or a poodle; the latter Is
the readiest to learn tricks.
For the llrst few dajs after you have
gotten your dog. you should be with him n
good deal, for, remember, he has Just, been
weaned from his mother, and is now n
stranger In a Strang land, and naturally
unci?. yiien ne nowis, uon t nusn mm up
with a cuff or' an angry-word. Tou would
not treat, a bany. brother that way. See that
the puppy has something to chew on some
thing too large for him to swallow.
The first step In his education is to win
his affection. Always have, some tiny morsel
of food to give him. every time you visit
him the first few days. In that way he will
associate your coming with something pleas
ant. As soon as he, gets to know and love you,
you may start In training him. Be both
firm and kind, and never harsh. If. SomeT
times, you feel your patience Is about ex
hausted and you would lust like to give
the contrary scamp a good box on the ear,
just drop the lesson and go back to it an
hour or two later.' Tou want to remember
that dogs often have quite ns sensitive feel
ings as people.
It is a good plan to decide on a certain
signal in whistling, say either a long note
or two short ones. If you happen to be a
girl, you can buy a whistle. If nature has
not endowed you with one.
Whistle to him while you nro close by
and immediately give him a morsel to eat.
Repeat the performance several times. In
creasing the distance between you each time.
In a short time the puppy will learn that
your whistle means that there's something
good for;hlnr, if he will run to you for It
Never faU, though, to pet him a lot each
time, and after awhile he will grow to think
quite as rajuch of your -approbation as of
thA food vou dve. Of cnursp. In the begin
ning it is a good plan to give him a lesson
when he ip nungry, as hunger win man
him work all the harder to please you and
win ,the food. .
Tou know how you hate to he kept too
long at one lesson In school. Well, It Is pre
cisely the same way with a puppy. In
teaching htm to come to you or to charge,
just try him a half a dozen times, and then
stop for, say, an hout.

Indianapolis, Ind.. March 16. Beneath a
canopy of black, placed on the rotunda of
the Capitol building. In a casket covered
with the silken folds of the Stars and
Stripes, surrounded by thousands of blos
soms, while over all swung the great bat
tle Hug that flew from the warship Indiana
during the naval battle of Santiago, tho
body of ex-President Harrison lay in bUtc
for nine 1'oura to-day.
;Durlni that time fully CO.cw persons
passed by the corpse to take a last look at
tho distinguished dead, and when, at 10
o'clock , to-night, the Capitol doors wero
finally closed and 'the people told that no
more could enter, there were still thou
sands more waiting patiently la line. The
body lay in state from 1:30 o'clock in tho
afternoon until 10 o'clock at night, and not
once during these hours was there a break
or halt in the lines which passed rapidly
by on the right and left of the casket.
It was Indiana's day with iitr aead, and
most toucblngly was the esteem and honor
in which General Harrison was held by nls
fellow-cltlzens revealed. In front or. the
Harrison home, along the Btreets through
which the remains were curried 011 their
way to and from the State House, in the
lines that stretched at times a half mile
from the doors of the Capitol, men, women

An Old Soldier's Tribute.
Early in the morning Mrs. Harrison en
tered tho room where her husband lay, to
be alone with him for probably the last
time. As she stood in the darkened cham
ber, the door of the room opened noiseless
ly and an old soldier, bent wtlh age and
shivering In the bitter cold of the moinlng,
came slowly in. Ho did not see Mrs. Har
rison, and leaned over the dead face, and
tears oame to his eyes.
"Colonel," he said, softly, and touched tho
white hand on the General's breast
Mrs. Harrison cams to where he was
standing and said:
"I am Mrs. Harrison.
"Tou will excuse me." the old man said,
"for Intruding on your grler. but I wanted
to see my old commander onco more. Just
once more. I have tried very hard to como

alive and never could. When I heard that
he was dead I wanted to give him the old
salute for tho last time." and raising his
hand to his forehead In true mtlltary'rash
lon, the old man, turned away and passed
from the room. , "
The incident nearly overpowered Mrs.
Harrison, and It was 5 some time before she
regained her composure.

At a quarter to 12, o'clock General McKee
ordered 2,500 Infantrymen, btanding at "at

covered casket holding the body of their
old friend and leader, borne to the hearse,
many of them wero affected to tears.

marched slowly by with uncovered bends
and took up their places In the procession.
Arrangement fur the Funeral.
In marked contrast to the military dis
play made to-day, by which the State of
Indiana paid its I.-ii-t tribute of honor to
General Harrison, will be the funeral ssr
vlces to-morrow afternoon at . the First
Presbyterian Church. The rites will be sim
ple, dignified and unostentatious.
The arrangements for the services to
morrow have been practically completed in
detail. The church has been richly but
simply decorated with drapings of black
and white and of the American flag. The
entrances have been draped In black. In
the Interior and by way of relief to the
more somber trappings, the altar and ros
trum are covered with a profusion of palms
and potted plants.
Owing to the limited capacity of the
church, which will seat only about 1.000,
and because of the great demand for seats.
tne committee on arrangements found It
necessary to announce that admission to
the church would be to friends of the
family by card. The services to-morrow
are Intended only for the friends and rela
tives of General Harrison and this decision
was deemed advisable In order to guaran
tee that the church would not be overrun
with persons who had no claim to entrance

Misgoverniuent of the City IJe
ceives Xo Attention in Docu
ment Slim Meeting of
Tarty at Odeon.
The Republicans formally opened their
campaign last night at a mass meeting at
the Odeon at Finney and Grand avenues.
The opening was not a source of consola
tion to the leaders, the crowd being entire
ly too small to indicate anything like cn
thusIasm.iThcre were in th; hall about 1,000
people. Those that were there were very
demonstrative and cheered enthusiastically
every time the Nesblt'law, the police law
or the Jefferson Club was mentioned.
Tho meetir.s was called to order shortly
after 8. o'clock by John D. Johnson, presi
dent of the St. Louis Republican Club. At
this time the attendance was so limited
that the brass band was called Into service"
and sent to the street In front of the build
ing. With tho assistance of the band the
crowd was considerably augmented. The
orchestra chair3 were practically filled. A
few people were seated in the boxes, and
a few were scattered about the galleries.
Two of Mavor Zlegenheln's sons cccupl"d

Slim -Crowd at Meeting.
When Mr. Parker appeared on the plat
form he was given a rousing reception. The
audience rose and gave him three hearty
ntiooro & soon nM hp had taken his Scat,
John D. Johnson urose and called the meet
ing to oi-der. Mr. Johnson made a long
speech. He told how Mr. Parker had been
nominated, said It was true that conference
had been held a the Security building and
the St. Nicholas Hotel, and Mr. Parker and
the rest of the Republican ticket were se
lected at these conferences. ,,,
Mr. Johnson never alluded to Ziegenhcm,
nor did he say a single word throughout his
speech about his administration. The Nes
blt law and the polico law occupied his en
tire attention. ., ,
When Mr. Johcpon finished his speech he
introduced General George H. Shields as the
permanent chairman of the meeting. Gen
eral Shields apparently had taken his cue
from Mr. Johnson, and talked for an hour
or more on the Nesblt law, the police law
and tho Jefferson Club. Not a. word was ut
tered by him In defense of the administra
tion of .Major Zlegenhein. No explanation
was made, or attempted, of the present con
dition of the fctreets of St. Louis, or to
-,.o,.. inctitiittnna nr the Drotracted
period of darkness, or anything else 'per
taining to the present condition of. the city.
The wholo burden of the story of even
speaker was the Nesblt and pol ce laws.
When General Shields had finished he in
troduced Mr. Parker, the Republican can
didate for Mayor. Mr. Parker was given a.
warm reception. The "boys" jumped to
their feet and cheered wildly, waving hats
and other things in his honor. Mr. Parker
occupied the stard an hour and a half. He
made a speech on the police law: then he
read the platform, and after ho had finished
that task ho continued his remarks with a

time did he discuss the present condition
of the city or promise anything tetter lor
Mr. Parker's Platform.
The platform of the party consists of
declarations by Mr. I'arker, and which by
the way, was not approved by a.fornial ote
at last night's meeting.
It Is as follows:
To tho Citizens of St. Louis: .Gentlemen
Ilmfng been officially notified that at
the primary etectlon held by the i.e
publlcan patty of tho city of St. ,LouH. March
5 1931. I was chosen as the candidate or that
party for the high and honorable ofuce- of Maor
of raid city. It Is Ilttlnc and proper for me ot
state the lmea upon which I will administer
municipal aflalrs. If elected. Ordinarily, the plat
form of a party Is announced by its representa
tives in convention astembled. but in the substitu
tion of nominations by direct primary Instead ot
by a convention there Is no party authority In
this instance to promulgate a platform. In as
suming this function. I disclaim any- disposition
to dictate a party platform: what I have to say,
therefore, will bo simply my on views, but
with the explanation that the same have been
submitted to the other nominees on th ticket
with me. and meets tneir approval.
Deeply sensible of the honor conferred upon
me by my fellow-cltiien. and profoundly con
scious of the great responslblity Involved in ac
cepting the candidacy, and ot the still greater
burden which would follow a successful election,
and in the earnest hope that I will not disap
point the Just expectations of my friends and of
the mitillr ttther as a candidate or as an officer.
I have no hesitation In making ih following
declaration of principles, viz:
1. I am a Republican, t believe that that
party, which has so successfully managed the af
fairs of the 'nation, can be confidently trusted to
manage the affairs of this city. Therefore. If
elected. I will administer municipal affairs on
the same broid ard progressive basis that has
always character!7ed the conduct of national af
fairs by the party to which I belong Keeping
alnava in view tho good of tho city and the best

who Is not honest and clean in his public and

efficient and zealous service to the public. Xor
should any more persons be employed or nald
from the public revenue than are absolutely
necessary for the efficient condnct of public busi

without the concent of the people of this city,

which an enormous drain Is made upon the rev

are limited solely by the discretion of a majori

sole representative cf the people of this cltj'
on said board holding his commission from the
people of the city is the llavor. If I am elect

5. In common with the great mass of our fI-lnw-cltlzens,
regnrdlcss or partv. 1 believe that
the purity of el-ctlons nnd sanctity of the batlot
constitute the foundation stones of Tuih!M mttv
and of our republican Institutions. They arc the
safeguard of liberty Itself. The frauds prac
ticed at recent elections In this city are known
of all men; they have been laid bare bv our
Orand Juries and by snorn testimony In legal
proceedings. I will not take office unless hon
estly and fairly elected by the free and legal
voters of this city, and I will use every effort
through mr own tnfluence. and by exerting my
Influence on all within its reach, to stop the per
petration of those frauds which we krow ire
contemplated and now In course of execution
through false registration. These frauds are
onlv possible by reason cf the present infamou.v
election law. Imposed upon our city by a partisan
legislature. As far as can be dona under such
an enormity, that law should at least b hon
estly administered. Above all things, the man
ejected as Mayor of this city, who is put for
ward as that officer during the Louisiana Pur
chase Centennial, must be honestly elected, and
have neither cloud nor shadow of doubt on his
title to thst great office. ,
S. If elected Major, I will give all my time

they, as well ns all other departments and branch

are efflctently and economically administered.
7. Our cltv must be up with the spirit of the

character, suitable to onr growing city, and typi
cal of its new era of progress. As a matter of
public health and comfort, we should have pure

8. No franchises should be granted to street

and for the comfort of their emsloyes.

this. I believe the city should continue to own
and operate its waterworks system. Including alt
enlargements, whether by way of filtration punts
or otherwise, and that water should ba furnished

favor a municipal lighting plant, adequate to
the growing needs and requirements of the city,
and. believing that such a step would be of
great advantage to ths city, and be a great saving
to it and its people. 1 favor the Immediate In
auguration of steps in that direction. I also
believe that In the Interests of tho public health

After Air. Parker had finished, there were
loud cries for the Reverend Doctor Boyd.
He occupied a seat in the front row on the
platform, but remained silent for the time.
Ex-Congressman Charles B. Pearce was
next introduced. Major Pearce was given a
warm and vociferous reception when he

he did he discussed tho Nesblt law and the
police law exclusively. When Major Pearce
sat down the audience again began to call
