Two men attached to Pawneo Bill's
wild, west show were seriously burned
Sunday noon on the show grounds, and
two other employes had their faces
blackened, through the explosion of sev
eral pounds of powder. The accident
occurred while a largo number of people
were assembled on tho grounds watch
ing the erection of the tent3 and the
disposition of tho paraphernalia, and
these scattered in alt directions when
the explosion occurred.
It appears that four men entered a
tent for the purposo of loading shells
for use In tho exhibition. A large quan
tity of powder was exposed while tho
shells wero being filled, and It is alleged
some one walked Into the tent smoking
a cigarette, a spark from which Ignited
tho explosive. Homer Swelgart, a cow
boy, was burned from his face to the
waist, somewhat seriously. A colored

at Columbia, S. C, had his eye, face,
neck, hands and clothing badly burned

Sheds a New Light Upon the
1 6 to 1 Bugbear Republicans
Responsible For Ratio.
A Toledo News reporter met General
Sherwood Just as he escaped from the
Cleveland night boat.
"Have you read the Kansas City
platform, General?" Inquired our re
porter. "Yes, have Just finished reading It.
It Is a great document. It makes Im
perialism the paramount Issue, Just as
I havo all along claimed. If you will
look at your dictionary you will dis
cover that paramount, used In this con
nection, means supreme. The platform
mokes the issue between a republic or
an empire. It Is more than an issue,
It Is a crisis. This Is why Webster
Davis, one of the oldest Republicans In
the United States, has already declated
for Bryan. I believe all the antl-imp-rlallsts,
led by ex-Governor Boutwell
and Geneial Carl Schurz will support
"How about 10 to 1, General?"
"This contest over 10 to 1 In the Kan
sas City convention and elsewhere is
over a shadow.There Is no Issue of 10 to
1. And I am surprised that representa
tive leadeis should sweat over a ques
tion that has no substance whatever.
Let me call your attention to the fact
that 10 to 1 has stood unchallenged ex
cept by Republican orators and oracles
for over sixty years. The law of con
gress of 1837 fixing the amount of silver
In the silver dollar and the grains of
gold In a gold dollar has stood for 03
ycais and no congress has ever even
setlously attempted to change the ra
tio. And let me call your attention to
another fact, both lurid and vital that
It was a congress, Republican In both
binnches, that passed the law of May,
1S9S, to coin all tho stiver bullion In the
mints, (estimated at $50,000,000) at the
ration of 16 to 1. President McKlnley
signed that act nnd It became a law by
his signature. Not a Republican mem
ber of that congress In either house or
senate made an effort to chance the
ratio. And the only real coined money
in circulation among the people is sil
ver coined by the Republican party
(In absolute control of all departments
of government), at the ration of 16 to 1.
I have been traveling In eight states, at
least three days every week f6r a year,
and I have only seen gold once.
''The whole business fabric Is now
supported by rag money most of
which Is not legal tender, or not real
money sustained by silver, coined at
the ratio of sixteen to 1.
"Until tho Republican party names
some other ratio, the 16 to 1 ratio,
which has stood for sixty-three years,
will continue to stand. Tho silver dol
lar, coined at the ration of 10 to 1, Is
doing Its full share In the exchange of
values. There can be no Issue on 16 to
1 until some party proposes' some other
fixed ratio. Hence, 16 to 1 Is not only
all right, but our president, so succinct
ly devoted to "plain duty," and "be
nevolent assimilation," has given It his
official sanction and signature."

There Is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness 1 caused by an inflamed condi

you have a rumbling sound or Imper

closed , deafness Is the result, and un
less the Inflammation can be taken out
and this tube restored to Its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever; nine cases out of tenare caused by
