ALL SUBSCRIPTIONS CASH IN ADVANCE.
In the recent city election in Boston, less than
a third of the registered women voters, entitled to
vote for members of the school committee, went to
The total amount of money in circulation in the
United. States was stated on January 1 to be $3,
447,368,355. The per capita circulation was esti
mated at $35.71
It is announced that growers of sugar beets in
tho "West refuse to accept the lower prices offered
' bybcet sugar factories, and will prefer to plant
their land with other crops.
' A deficit of $GOO,000 is giving trouble in Now
". Jersey. If there is any state in which the Demo
crats have secured control without bringing on a
deficit the fact should be advertised.
An investigation has revealed tho fact that on
January 1 there wer0 10,000,000 pounds more of
butter in the United States than on the correspond
ing dato a year ago ; but the price was considerably
higher. Butter is coming into the country from
Canada and other foreign countries, but consumers
have to pay more, notwithstanding the reduced
tariff rate. The importers make big profits which
increases their energy in bringing in foreign goods.
'But is that satisfactory to American producers or
An artiolo in the London Times says that 'Mr.
Chiosa, long a Free-Trade member of Parliament,
asserts that tho total number of adult agricultural
laborers in the United Kingdom is only 422,000.
There were four or five times as many when agri
culture was protected in that county. But under
Free Trade there has been this enormous decline
in workmen and millions of acres of land have
ceased to be cultivated. That is the kind of medi
cine the Democrats are administering to tho far
iners in the United States.
DAYS OF DIZZINESS
Coma to Hundreds of Maysvllle Fooplo.
The greatest drawback on government ownership
of the telephone and telegraph is that there Ts no
'money to pay for them. Probably the anarchists
and the socialists mean to take them anyway.
A total of 188,850 idle freight cars on the rail
roads of the United States and Canada was report
ed on December 31, as compared with a total 101,
545 on the corresponding date of 1912. The in
crease in idle cars is held to be conclusive proof
of the extreme conservatism which prevails in
practically every field of industry.
John D. Rockefeller has been driven from Ohio
by the hell hounds of Jim Cox's tax laws, who
wanted Rockefeller to pay taxes on $900,000,000
worth, of property. The utter unreasonableness of
such a proposition only shows how insane upstart
politicians like Governor Cox can be. A dema
gogue reformer is the most costly luxury any city
or State can have.
In a memorial to Congress from E. II. Rettig,
a. prominent farmer of the State of Washington,
the trust busters were shocked by his declaration
that the farmers were neglected by the government
and the big trusts, like the Standard Oil, Inter
national Harvester Company and the United States
Steel Corporation, had accomplished more good for
the people than the government.
Says tho American Economist: "Secretary Red
field asks Congress to give him an appropriation
of $4,000,000 to pay the expense of finding out what
ails the country." An honest investigation and an
honest answer to the question might be worth tho
money. But there is really no need of all that
bother and cost. Business is suffering from an
.overdose of Free-Trade policies. That's what ails
A JAPANESE OASABIANCA.
The story of tho boy who stood on the burning
deck whence all but him had fled is one that re
curs in every great disaster even in tho absence of
such a hero or any occasion for such heroism. A
most thrilling version of this immortal legend cam-i
over tho cable from Japan on January 13, or at
least appeared in our newspapers of the following
day. "The city of Kagoshima with 04,000 inhabit
ants was totally destroyed by a flood of fire from
the Sakura-shima volcano." One brave telegraph
operator "sat at his key calling for help" while
the crowds rushed into the sea and "thousands at
least, it, is certain, dropt in the streets overcomo by
heat and fright and foul gases, to be quickly cover
ed by the fall of ashes and incandescent rocks."
The writer of the report, be he Japanese or Amer
ican, surely does have a good command of English.
How simple, how dramatic, how effective, are his
concluding lines: "I am the last,person living' and
that was the last thing-lie said." One could mak
a poem out of that ; nay, is it not already a poem
such as Mrs. Ilcmans could not better?
Alas, it is hard for poetry to thrive in this matter
of fact age. Tho too of the statistician comes so
near the heels of our poet, he galls his kibe. The
city of Kagoshima was not destroyed. The official
report estimates the damage to the city as thirty
five houses collapsed and fourteen persons dead.
As for the heroic telegrapher, last survivor of an
other Lisbon, he seems to bo no longer in exis
tence. Perhaps he never was. And the world can
ill afford to lose such men. New York Independent.
A GIRL AND HEE CHOICE.
"Don't take that job that's ofTored you, my girl. Take
a good mail's lovo instead."

"Sixty dollars, I think."

Money could not buy nor any kind of influence obtain
such recommendations ; you may depend upon it that any
testimonial we publish is' honest and true if you have any
doubt of this write to the women whose true names and
addresses are always given, and learn for yourself.
Read this one from Mrs. Waters:
Camden, N. J. "1 was sick for two years with nervous spells, and
my Jddnoya were affected. I had a doctor all tho timo and used a
galvanio battery, but nothing did mo r,ny good. I was not able to go
to bed, 1uf spent my timo on a couch or In a sleeping-chair, and soon
became almost a skolotdn. Finally ray doctor went away for hia
health, and my husband heard of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound and got mo some. In two months I got relief and now I
am like a now woman and am at my usual weight. I recommend
your medicine to every ono and so does my husband." Mrs. Tillib
Wateus, 1135 Knight St., Camden, N.J.,
And this one from Mrs. Haddock:
"Utioa, Okla. "I was weak and nervous, not able to do my work
and scarcely able to bo on my feet. I had backache, headache, palpi
tation of tho heart, trouble with my bowels, and inflammation. Slnco
taking tha Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetablo Compound I am better
than I have been for twenty years. I think it is a wondorful medi
cine and I have recommended it to others." Mrs. AIajiy Ann Had
dock, Utica, Oklahoma.
Now answer this question if you can. Why should a
woman continue to suffer without first giving Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a trial ? You know that
it has saved many others why should it fail in your case?
