This is said to be a disease that
the Czar of Russia, invented some
years ago. to punish the Nihilists,
and was brought to this Country in
tho bones of some of his punished
subjects. It has been more or less
fashionable iu this Country ever
since, and people up to last year
who were eick and didn't know what
was the matter said they bad the
grip. Fashionable people called it
tbe La Grippe until they took it
themselves- and then they diden't
care what they called it. It hardly
ever kills its victims in a fair fight
but many of them commit suicide
after they get well to keep from tak
iog it again. There is a variety of
opinions about the symptoms of the
disease among doctors and other
people who haven't had it good,
1 but find a man who has had it good
and he will not leave you in doubt as
to its brand arid ear marks.
? At first you feel like you had been j
dropped into a cold batb, and then,
pitched i rite tophet. The next well
defined s^bsation is that a big dog,
or a gzzly bear is palling) tbe flesh
off tho rear part of your legs and
that a freight train has hit you be
tween the shoulders. When you
feel any or all of these symptoms
you had better telegraph to Lazarus,
and send for the doctor. In nine
casoa out of ten the telegram will
give you more solid relief than the
physician but there is nothing like a
doctor to-tell you Low bad you feelj
and he ought to b9 around to tell
the family what the patient died ol
and how the sad event might bavi
It has only been a week since I
had the Grip, and I don't feel strong
enough yet to do the subject justice,
but hope that if I survive the suicide
stage, and live 'till the snow melts,
I think I can say some ''real mean"
things about it.
Letter From Greenoastle.
If you will allow
me I will add to my former ooromu
nioation this much- more, first by
saying, that Greencastle, Ind., is .a
town of scholastic industries, the
product of which in a general eonBe is
refinement, morality, useful knowl.
edge and religion. If my judgment
is correct and free from prejudice,
these elements prevail to a great ex?
tent in this community. There are
situated firthiB town from eight to
ten large brick buildings specially
erected and adapted for scholastic
work, sufficient to accommodate
nearly two thousand students, con?
sisting of primary schools, High
schools, College buildings with liter
ary, theological and university ad?
vantages, tbe whole excepting the
primary and bigh schools are under
the auspices of the N. Methodist
Church, having been established
many years ago by Bishop Asbury
of Methodist celebrity and after bis
doatb, named De Pauw University,
and during the last forty years very
many ministers of the gospel of all
denominations, as well as ot In r
prominent men have been sent out
from this popular school of learning.
This section of country is suffici?
ently unduiating to releave the inon
touy of an other wise* Hat country. It
is a blue grass district, which to this
scribe has more attractions than any
other couutry where this-product of
nature is wanting, for the simple
reason that no section of country
comes nearer our ideal than a blue
grass section; while many parts of
these United States appear as though
they were cursed with a preponder?
ance of uuelcSB, and worthless
growths of the soil, but if any oue
of these should be found in a bine
grass coontry, the priceless value of
the latter, a thousand times over?
balances the eurse of such appar?
ently worthless products.
It was my pleasure to attend while
here a "Farmers Institute" consist?
ing of five sessions, and lasting two
days, in which large companies were
found a few of tho most practical
and scientific farmers of this and one
or two other states. Their experi?
ence of management of soil, cattle,
horses and dairy?to listen to?were
an inspiration, and also had an un?
mistakable educatory influence
over many who were present. A
number of important, and pertinent
questions was asked and were ans?
wered by the practical experts in
husbandry. One other note right
here, the ladies were a great factor
in these sessions, and several very
instructive papers were read by them
on dairy and farm house manage
ment and disoussions on a variety
of subjects which enter into the life
and homos of most people.
Why not have an annual Farmers
Institute in Tazewell, somewhat sim?
ilar to this, instead of the almost
worthless fairs which have been held
for several years?
At this writing La Grippe is pre?

Americans Have a Right to De?
termine Colonial Policy
St. Paul, Feb. 14.?Col. William
J. Bryan, of Lincoln, Neb., who is in
tbia oity for a Democratic banquet,
visited the legislature today and was
invited by the House of "Represen?
tatives, ninety of whose 119 mem?
bers nre Republicans, to addreBB
that body, a moat nnusual courtesy,,
for which Col. Bryan returned
eloquent thanks. His remarks were
free from politics. A recess was
taken in order that the legislators
might greet tne distinguished visitor.
Mr. Bryan, at a Democratic ban?
quet to night, said:
"The ratification of the treaty in?
stead of committing the United
States to a colonial policy really
clears the way for the recognition o
the Philippine Republic Lincoln,
in bis first .inaugural message, con?
densed an unanswerable argument
into a brief question,when he asked:
'Can aliens make treaties aaaier than
aliens make laws?' The same argu?
ment is presented in the question:
'Could the independence of the Fil?
ipinos be secured more easily by
diplomacy from a foreign and bos
tile nation than it can through laws
passed by Congress and voicing the
sentiments of tho American people i
alone? If independence is more '.
desirable to our people than a colo- i
nial policy, who is theie or what is i
there to prevent the recognition of i
Philippine independence. It is ab- <
suib to say that the United States ]
can be transformed from a republic
into an empire without consul ting I
"The imperialists may be wilting ;
to deny to the Filipinos the right to i
govern themselves, but they cannot 1
deny to g the Americam people the ;
right to determine the policy (o bs
pursued by the United States in the i
settlement of the Philippine question. :
"Until the people express)? them- i
selves we can only guess at their i
views, but is it not safer to suppose i
that they will adhere to the ideas
and policies of a century than to as?
sume that they will go back to the
creed ot kings and to the gospel of
force? In commemoration of the ?
fact that France was our ally in se
curing independence the citizens of
that nation joined with the citizens
ot the United States in placing in
New York harbor a heroic statue
representing Liberty Enlightening

Tho Treaty Making Power.
According to tho constitution of tbe
United States, the President and M e
Senate are charged with the duty of
making treaties with foreign countries.
The House of Representatives hns no
share of responsibility in this matter.
The executive department negotiates tho
treaty and submits it to the senate for
ratification or rejection. It can have no
binding force until ratified by tbe senate.
But when ratified, is absolutely binding
on every department of tbe government,
including tbe House of Representatives.
Tbe Spanish treaty lust ratified by tbe
Senate, contains a clanae providing for
the payment of twenty million dollars to
Spain. Now, if tbe House should refuse
to make the necessary appropriation to
to carry out this provision of the treaty,
it would to all intents and purposes be?
come a port of the treaty-making pow?
er, in violation of a plain provision of
constitution. In view of these facts, it
seems to ua that the House of Represen?
tatives has no discretion in the matter.
It is an imperative duty to make tho re?
quired appropriation. ..Otherwise it
would be gnilty of infringing the rights
of a co-ordinate branch of the govern
ment and arrogating to itself powers
not conferred by the constitution. It is
true that, according to the constitution
itself, appropriations Ulis must originate
in tbe House. Hutthjs does not imply!
that the House has the right to withhold
an appropriation made necessary by tbe
action of the Executive and the Senate
in the exercise of their unquestioned sad
legitimate duties under the constitution.
It would be a sorry spectacle to see one
branch of tbe national legislature delyiug
tbe other branch aud tbe Executive and
assuming tho right to nullify a treaty
negotiated and ratified in the regular
legal manner. That would be an exam?
ple of bouse divided against i taelf, and 1
