most general of all diseases or affections, for
very few persons are entirely free from It.
By taking Hood's Sarsaparilla, which, by
tho remarkable cures it has accomplished,
often when other medicines have failed, has
proven itself to he a potent and peculiar
medicine for this disease. Some of these
cures are really wonderful. It you suffer from
scrofula, he sure to try Hood's Sarsaparilla,
" My daughter Mary was afflicted with scrof
ulous sore neck from tho time she was 22 months
old till she became six years of age. Lumps
formed in her neck, and one of them after
growing to the size of a pigeon's egg, became
a running sore for over three years. We gave
her Hood's Sarsaparilla, when tho lump and
all indications of scrofula entirely dis
appeared, and now she seems to be a healthy
child." J. S. Cablilk, Naurlght, N. J.

Ulcerated Sore Throat.
Two years ago I had Ulcerated
Sore Throat, and was so weakened
and reduced in flesh that my friends
thought it impossible for me to re
cover. I was attended by the very
best physicians, but their endeavors
to relieve me were futile. My mcth
er seeing Swift's Specific (S. S. S.)
so highly recommended, decided to
give me a course of it, and after tak
ing several bottles I was entirely
cured. I have not had any signs of a
return of the disease since.
The Grandest he Ever Saw.
Mr. W. J. Colman, a prominent
c itizen of Gainesville, Fla., writes the
following under date of Feb. 10, 1890:
"I contracted a severe case of Conta
gious Blood Poison that gave a great
deal of trouble, and baffled the phy
sicians of this place. I wa9 finally
advised to try Swift's Specific (S.
b. S.), and I can sav. with trreat
pleasure, that a few bottles of it has
entirely cured me. I have no hesi
tancy in saying that S. S. S. is the
grandest blood medicine 1 ever saw,
and can cheerfully recommend it to
any one sunenng as I was."

The burden of the statesman's labors
the past week have been, silver in
the Senate and tariff in the House,
and I think some photographic in
terviews of members of the popular
branch of Congress during the strug
gle over the latter issue would prove
very interesting object leasousin
certain phases of legislative life at the
Capitol. Some of the more excitable
solons were as wild-eyed and violent-
y vociferous as bulls angered by the
waving of a red rag. Many republi
cans made wry faces and would have
voted adversely bad they possesed the
courage of their convictions. These
dissatisfied gentlemen now console
themselves with pretended assurances
that the Senate will amend the bill
so that it can scarcely be recognized
by its best friends.
In the Senate the silver bill has
attracted much attention and a few
of the republican Senators, notably
Stewart of Nevada, whoso long sil
very beard and great height make
rather . picturesque personal
ity, said some very plain words by
way of reminding the party in power
of its violated pledges of monetary
reform. Tho silver statesman even
went so far as to praise the demowa-
cy in a cautious way for its fidelity
to fiscal reform. The fate of the sil
ver bill in the Senate is a matter of
speculation, but its defeat is probable
in my opinion.
Singularly enough Senator Carlisle
passes over to tho Senate almost at
the same moment when the tariff
bill does, and his new colleagues in
admiration of his great services and
of his pre-eminent abilities have
waived formality and placed the
Kentucky statesman upon the finance
committee as the successor of his la
mented predecessor. This is the
second time I believe that any man
has been so honored in that respect.
It is thought that Mr. Carlisle will
spring from the House to the Senate
a full-fledged leader, and be so recog
nized by both partes.
I heard quite a sharp passage be
tween Senator's Blair and Iliscock
while the discussion of naval affairs
was progressing and both of these
usually cold-blooded men became
somewhat excited. The former as
usual spoke like a crank, and the lat
ter rather surprisingly spoke on the
demoralizing effect that navy ' yard
appointments had on both political
The river awl harbor bill was un
der consideration in the House a day
or so since and Mr. Henderson of II
linois, chairman of tho committee
on rivers and harbors said the appw
priation was nineteen million dollars
less than the estimates, and stated
that lie believed that no money
which went out of tho Treasury was
so much in the interest of the peo
Speaker Reed, the chief bulldozer
of the republican party, has added to
his partizan laurels by consenting to
the decapitation of two more demo
cratic congressmen Venable of Vir
ginia, and Elliott of South Carolina,
and the substitution of two colored
brethren, one of whom, Langston, is
a creditable type of his race, This
action gives three colored members
of the House. But there is one thing
that even the despotic intolerance 0
the Speaker was unequal to, and that
is, the seating of the pestiferous
demagogue Chalmers, of Mississippi.
"That was the unkindest cut of all"
to the little renegade whom the re
publicans named the butcher of Fort
Pillow, a few yeare ago, but who is
now supposed to be in full accord
with that party.
There are two contests yet to be
settled, and the committee have ree
ommended the unseating of the two
democrats. One of these unfortunate
gentlemen is Gen. Charles E. Hook
er, of Miss., who has won much dis
tinction during his three terms in the

COUNTING THE PEOPLE.
Some of the Inquiries to be Made by
. . the Census Enumerators in J tuie
The Eleventh Census of the United
States will be taken during the
month of June. The enumerators
will begin their work on Monday,
June 2, and will visit every house
and ask questions concerning every
person and every family in the Uni
ted States. The questions that will
be asked call for the name of every
person residing in the United States
on the first day of June, with their
sex and age, and whether white,
black, mulatto, quadroon, octoroon,
or Chinese, Japanese, or Indian.
Inquiry will bo made also of every
person as to whether they are single,
married, widowed, or divorced; and,
if married, whether married during
the census year. The place of birth
of each person, and the place of birth
of the father and mother of each per
son, will also bo called for, as well as
a statement as to the profession,
trade, or occupation followed and the
number of months unemployed dur
ing the census year. For all persons
ten years of age or over a return
must be made by the enumerator as
to the number able to read and write,
and also the number who can speak
English. For those who can not
speak English the particular lan
guage or dialect spoken by them will
be ascertained. For children of
school age, also, the number of
months they attended school will be
recorded by the census enumerators.
In the case of mothersan inquiry will
be made as to the number of children
they have had, and the number of
these children living at the present
time. This inquiry is to be made of
all women who are or have been
married, including all who are wid
ows or have been divorced. For
eign-born males of adult age, that is,
21 years of ago or over, will be asked
as to the number of years they have
been in the United States, and
whether they are naturalized or have
taken out naturalization papers. Of
the head of each family visited the
question will be asked as to the num
ber of persons in the family, and
whether his home is owned or hired;
also, if owned, whether the home is
free from mortgage incumbrance.
If the head of the family is a farmer,
similar inquiries will be made con
cerning the ownership of the farm.
In addition to these inquiries, all of
which are made on the population
schedule, the law under which the
census is taken makes provision for
special inquiries concerning such of
the population as may bo mentally
or physically defective in any res
pect, that is, insane, feebleminded,
deaf, blind, or crippled, or who may
be temporarily disabled by sickness,
disease, or accident at the time of the
enumerator's visit. Certain special
inquiries will also be made concern
ing inmates of prisons and reforma
tories and of charitable and benevo
lent institutions. Besides this, a
statement will be called for concern
ing all persous who have died during
the census year, giving their name,
age, sex, occupation, and cause of
This official count of the people
comes but once in ten years, and
every family and every person
should consider it to be their duty to
answer the questions of the census
enumerators willingly and promptly,
so that definite and accurate infor
mation may be gained concerning
the 65,000,000 people living within
the bounds of this great country.
The Warren County Teachers' In
stitute will be held in McMinnville,
begining June 30, and, continue one
week. It is the duty of every teach
er expecting to teach in the public
schools this year, to be present. I
also extend an invitation to the
teachers of other counties.
All who are interested in the vari
ous schools, are invited, that they
may see whether or not their teacher
is abreast with the times, willing and
zealous in his work, and competent
to his task.
The teacher who shirks the duties
of the Institute will be liable to leave
his school work half done, and there
by fail in the effort to teach.
It is not expected that any one
teacher should answer every ques
tion that might arise, but that he
comes and shows, by his work, a
willingness upon his part, and that
he is not ashamed ol what he knows.
Special care will be taken to make
the program, of the week interest
ing as well as beneficial.
Trustees should not make any
written contract, without knowing
that their teacher has a certificate is
sued this year.
No certificates will be issued before
All are cordially invited to attend,
and participate in the exercises.
