Washington, Sept. 21. "Harri
son has got nigger on the brain," said
a member of the National Commit
tee who" had just come from the
White House to a friend whom he Is
backing for the vacancy on the bench
of the Court of Claims. "Yes sir,"
he continued excitedly, "you may
not believe it, but it's so all the
same, he actually wants to have a
nigger judge in the Court of Claims."
How much more this mad and dis
appointed individual might have
said will never be known, as his
friend succeeded in persuading him
to leave the hotel lobby and go to a
private room where he could relievo
his mind without being overheard.
It is understood to be a fact that Mr.
Harrison wants to appoint a negro
to this vacancy. If he does it there
will be a howl from the society
folks, as these positions have hereto
lore conferred the highest social priv
ileges upon the families of the judges.
Rut the social influence in Washing
ton usually succeeds in getting what
it wants, and if it turns its batteries
upon the White House Mr. llarn-
rison will probably be glad to pro
vide for his "nigger" elsewhere than
on the bench of the Court of Claims.
Mr. Harrison has been here a
week tomorrow, but owing to the
continual wrangling among those
who claim the right to advise him,
he has made but little headway in
making appointments. Saturday

During the last half century there,
has been a wonderful development
in what is known as sanitary
science. It is a science that
looks to the prevention of
diseases in communities through the
medium of cleanliness, and it com
mends itself most urgently to the
common sense of the people. Mean
while, it should be borne in mind
that the human system stands in
need of sanitation, and requires
even more care than of municipal
body. It is precisely here that S.S. S.
takes up the work of the sanitary
scientists. It cleanses the whole sys
tem, purifies the blood, disinfects the
channels through which it flows, and
destroys the germs of disease. It is a
harmless medicine, mid yet a most
powerful one. It is nature's tonic
