AN AGE OF PROGRESS.
That wo are living In a progrcsslveage will not bo seriously questioned by any
one. Improved methods are the order of the day In nltnost every direction. Tho
methods so long In vogue for peopling the world are, perhaps satisfactory
to most of us and doubtless any Inovatlon In that direction would meet with
violent opposition, though wo must admit that the agencies employed would
bear considerable Improvement, and right here wo would aak your hind atten
tion to a few romarks regarding the merits of the most Important und wonder
ful discovery and invention ever glvon to munklnd the Electropolse. This In
strument has now been before the public for-ten years, and,lts wonderful work
has confounded the skeptics and silenced tho scoffers By its uso the most se
vere pain can bo brought to subjection In n fuw minutes. HopeleMVasenof Fever.
Pneumonia and Diphtheria are cured In a short time.' Tho worst forms of
Ilheumatlsm are promptly cured. Female complaints of every character readily
respond to Its Influence. Catarrh that terrible destroyer nt tho human hys
tem Is driven out. Paralysis and Lo comotor Ataxia have received mor,. benefit
from the Klectropolse In a month than from any other form of treatrient In a
year. Dyspepsia and Kidney Diseases cannot exist under its Inlluence. There
Isn't a form of disease that It won't materially benefit. Xo skill required to use
it, and no risk Is Incurred nt any time. Applicable alike to the Infant and
the adult. Some of tho skeptics will tell you it cannot do what we claim, nor
anything else, Of course, they will, liless your soul, those fellows said that
steam could not be used ns a propelling iower: that nnasthpsla. was Impossible;
that the circulation of the blood was not a fact, and when Morse, first proposed
his telegraph line those fellows thought he should bo conllneiPIn a lunatic asy
lum, nnd so on, to the end. Your skeptic knows more of what can't be done
than the whole practical world knows what can and Is being done. Now, ns to
the facts. There are upwards of eleven hundred people ItlP.HT IIRKI2 In Kan
sas City NOW. who are tislng the I01ectroiolse, und heaven knows most of them
took It up with little confidence In Its efficiency. Leading bankers, lawyers,
merchants and business men have but little time for fine spun theories, nor aro
they visionary. No; but they want HAItD. COLD FACTS, und this Is the class
of people who love nnl recommend the Klectropolse. Men who look to ItK

don't hesitate to Investigate tlte Klectropolse. You owe it to yourselves, to
your families, to your friends and to society to obtain the Ix-st means for pro

Topckn, Kas., Mny 4. (Special.) Peo
ple who have followed the evidence In
the Householder trial nre at no loss
now to understand why the festive sen
ator from Cherokee county made such
frantic efforts to prevent the Investiga
tion launched by Oovernor Morrill.
Without pro-Judging the case before tho
defense has had nn opportunity to In
troduce testimony, certain unanswer
able evidence In the way ot records, etc.,
has been presented which furnishes
ample reason why Householder should
KO to the courts for an Injunction
against an Inquiry Into his ofllclal nets.
For instance, vouchers from tho stnte
auditor's olllce have been placed In evi
dence which show that during the past
eighteen months Householder has drawn
from the state for services upon the
state board of charities about $4,uut,
which Is one-third more than the state
of Kansas has ever paid for like services
In the samo length of time. In piling up
mileage and per diem charges against
tho state the senator bus shown him
self to be a financial artist of unques
tioned skill. Ho could make more miles
between given points nnd ilnd a neces
sity for trips over the ground oftener
than tiny man who has ever been In the,
employ ot the state. Xot the least of his
feats was to collect from the state
doublo mileage for the trip he made to
Topcku when the state senate enlivened
in January. lie charged up 'the miles
traveled llrst as a state senator and
again us member of tho board of char
ities, wltlle certain of his Populist asso
ciates aro wicked enough to say that ho
did not pay out a cent but traveled on
u pass. It 1ms been said by the philoso
pher of Paint creek that whenever u
man commences to howl reform with
one hand and runs for ofllec with the
other, ho will bear the closest kind of
watching, nnd Senator Householder cer
tainly supplies corroborative testimony
to the aphorism. The reformer from
Cherokeo county did not get nicely
warmed lu his seat before lie com
menced to bleed the treasury. Ho and
ex-Senator II. H. Kelly dn-w $10(1 from
tho state for preparing u bill in relation
to public charities, which the recent
legislature sat down upon with a dull,
sickening thud. This hud no mure war
rant lu law than would a claim from
tiny or all of the members of tho legisla
ture for each bill prepared and intro
duced, lie drew pay lor making out a
certain report Willi which he had no
lawful connection, and which In reality
was made by n bookkeeper at the asy
lum while he played croquet with the ''
female attendants at tho asylum, I In
visited his relatives in Iowa nnd drew
mileage for the trip from tho state. It
wns lu testimony by other members of
tho board that Householder kept thu
board in a constant slate of locomotion
for the purpose of taxing up mileage.
Hut details are unnecessary. Tho plain
fact that ho drew J 1,000 from the stuto
for eighteen months' service, besides his
accommodations of coffee, etc., which
ho says were "unsolicited presents," Is
of Itself ii conviction upon at lenst one
count of the indictment.
It is expected that tho Householder
trial will be finished by next Friday
night, when the case against Dr. Knl
berg, the female assistant superintend
ent nt tho asylum, will bo taken up.
