The campaign of ex-Governor Mc
Kinley toward the presidency is pro
gressing most gloriously, and from
present indications the popular cham
pion of protection is clearly tho choice
of the people who are to do the voting
next November. So far three states,
Arkansas, Florida and Mississippi, have
ield conventions, and McKinley has
swept the platter clean, liesides these
official deliverances of states, district
conventions in Illinois show that the
Cnllum candidacy is not taken serious
ly, but that McKinley is a hot favorite;
in Tennessco the II. Clay Evans boom
is a snare, and McKinley is gathering
in the delegates', in Nebraska, Senator
Thurston, a Republican leader, is out
in an open letter to the voters of that
state declaring that there is nothing
"behind the Manderson movement, and
that if MsICinley is defeated for tho
nomination the Republicans of that
state will be held responsible for the
disaster. Straws are there, and mighty
big ones at that, and thoy show how
the wind is blowing. . B ,
In a few days thero will bo other de-
liverances that will further add to the
McKinley tidal wave. On Wednesday
of this week tho glorious old state of
Ohio will speak, and (he world knows
that she will pronounce in thunder
tones for McKinley. The same day
Kansas will add to the chorus of pro
tection by electing a solid McKinley
delegation to St. Louis. Then comes
Wisconsin on tho 17th, Indiana on the
t 10th, Texas, Now York and Minnesota
on tho 24th, South Dakota on the 25th,
Maryland on the 27th and Oklahoma
on the 28th. Indications point to tho
strong probability that In addition to
the delegates already secured for Mc
TCinloy, that ho will have a strong fol
lowing in each of theso states, captur
ing' Minnesota, Wisconsin, Texas and
South Dakota completely, beside being'
'the warm second choice of tho Repub
licans of Now York and Massachusetts,

"Thero has not beon so potential a
forco in tho preliminary presidential
canvass for years as that now offered
by ex-Governor McKinley. li is not
bound by state lines, but covers tho
country. The professional politicians
aro at a loss to know what to do in
order to stem tho tide. Tho people, the
mighty forco that malccs and unraalces
presidents, are for McKinley, and his
candidacy is irresistible. State Journal.
Trontlng, Mint American Evil to he
Columbus, O., March 0. Ono of tho
greatest evils 'that arises from .the
JInuor. truffle is. in the onlnlo'n of iton

rnintlttii Mirrlc rit Wnnd Hnlmfv. flmf
. . . .,?V ,., ', , . . ,
- 'Proaucea ov ine,,scnsoicss rtiner.can
ol "treating." He believes
that if American patrons would imi
tate tho German and French people in
their moderate habits that tho curso of
intemperance would disappear Srom
Ho has observed that theso foreign
ers when at a saloon or garden invari
ably pay for their own drinks, while
Americans insist upon buying a supply
for the party, bo matter how many
may bo gathered together. This act
of unsolicited friendship seems to im
pose the obligation upon every indi
vidual in the party to reciprocate, and
the result is that seven or eight drinks
aro taken where ono would have been
sufllcient. ' '
In accordance with theso views Mr.
Norris has drawn ud a bill which is
aimed at the treating habit It pro
vides that no one may buy a drink for
another or even give another a drink
of intoxicating liquor in any saloon,
garden or phici where liquor is regu
larly sold. Fur tho first inraction of
tho law a penalty of SI. to $S fine ,is
provided; for a second offense from $3
to So, and for a third or subsequent of
fense a fine of from S10 to S20.
In ordor to make the law effective
tho author proposes to give ono half of
the fine to the informer, tho rest going
.o tho school fund. .While it is not
likely that the bill will become a law,
yet tho discussion will servo the pur
poso of showing up in its fullest capac
ity for nonsense tho indefensible cus
tom which Mr. Norris seeks to wipe
out. Nothing but public sentiment
can eradicate the evil, and it is tho aim
of the author to arouse this through
the medium of his remarkable bill.
There Aro Named HU1 Names, anil Whcnco
It is rather a fascinating pastime to
look up the strange names of persons
of whom we have heard, and read, and
group thera into tho animal, vegetable
and other kingdoms. Try it and see
what enjoyment you can derive from
it, when you have nothing else to do.
Let us giyo you an illustration of what
wo mean. Take if you please the Ani
mal kingdom, and Here we have the
Hoggs, Catts, Kittons, Coons, Foxes,
Piggs, Hares, Lyons, Reavers, Lambs,
Radgers, Rucks, Hulls, Colts and many
more, extending the list almost indefin
Try the feathered tribe, and you will
find Rirds, Partridges, Swans, Hawks,
Ruzzards, Crows, Tcalls, Wrens, Hens,
Jays, Drakes, Martins, with others too
tedious to mention.
You may how try colors, and find
Blacks, Whites. Rrowns, Grays, Pinks,
Dunns, Blues, Greens, leaving the finer
shades untouched, and to be looked
after by the ladies exclusively.
Now if you will look up the trades
you will be surprised at the number.
There are so many that it is diflicult to
make selections; there are the Carpen
ters, Rakers, Shoemakers, PI timers,
Goldsmiths, Sheppards, Millers, Ma
sons, Painters, Butlers, Coopers, Butch
ers, Seamons, Farmers, Carters, Tay
lors, Fishers, Cooks, Porters, Potters,
and you can extend this list indefinite
ly. Try and see how many you can
add to this division.
If you-nrc a mind you can next select
trees and shrubs, haying tho Haw
thorn, Primroses, Oaks, Chestnuts, Ma
ples, Reeehs, Plumbs, Pears, Crabtree,
and many others to select from.
Take the fishes, and you have Sal
mon. Piekerell. Pike-Schaad, Roe, Ray,
Chubb, and a host of others.
However, try it for yourself, and see
if you do not enjoy it.
Or you may turn to tho contradic
tions, and reap some enjoyment, as
follows: There are many Carpenters
who cannot saw a board straight, much
less build a house, or Ulitehers whose
only connection with the trade that
their names signify is in consuming
the tender lamb, or juicy steak. Again
there aro tho Whites, who aro black as
the ace of spades, and tho Blacks who
are as white as any of their neighbors.
Then thero ure tho Lambs who aro
far from playful, and tho Bulls who
are far from belligerent. Thero are
tho Painters who never painted their
town red, much less a house, and tho
Taylors whose only knowledge of
clothing consists in their own gar
ments. Wo have Lyons that are not
fierce, and nares that aro not timtdi
Wo have Crows that are not black, and
Swans that sing. Wo havo Fish who
livo out of water and for that matter
many other people who seldom know
what water tastes like.
Our names can bo turned and twisted,
and under all circumstances made
humorous, pathetic, or contradictory,
just as the humor strikes you to array
them. Try it

'" ''Shore Acres," which is nlmost unl-.
versally acknowledged as the best
American play yet produced, will bo
given a fine scenic representation at
tho Auditorium, Thursday March 12th.
An eminent dramatic editor in writing
of Mr. Homo's great work says: "If
Charles Dickens had had as much talent
as ho certainly had affection for the
stage ho would, I imagine, have writ
ten inst such a play as "Shore Acres."
No doubt Mr. Heme has delighted in
nothing so. much as tho works of tho
English humorist. Ilo jias imbibed
their atmosphere to such an extent
that ho sees all things and all people
in a Dlckensonian light, for the scenes
and characters ho presents are Ameri
can to the core. It is rather tholr
sweetness, their simplicity, and their
quaint humor that suggest tho great
novelist" Thero aro nearly thirty
characters in "Shoro Acres" and each
and every ono is a distinct typo and
true to life. For tho production of
"Shore Acres'! in this city a company
of unusual excellence has been select
ed, and every patron of refined stage
art is asbured a thoroughly enjoyable
From a letter written by Rev. J.
Gunderman, of Dimondalo, Mieh., wo
are permitted to make this extract: "I
have no hesitation in recommending
Dr. King's Now Discovery, as the re
sults were almost marvelous in the caso
of my wife. While I was pastor of the
Raptist Church at Rives Junction she
was brought down with Pneumonia
succeeding La Grippe. Terrible parox
ysms of coughing would last for hours
with littlo interruption and it seemed
as if she could not survive them. A
friend recommended Dr. King's Now
Discovery; it was quick in its work
and highly satisfactory in results."

Tho egg receivers aro preparing to
put many pieces of hen fruit in cold
storage this summer. Tho magnitude
of this business is not generally realiz
ed, and it is quite a source of revenue
to the cold storage people. For somo
time efforts have been made by certain
parties to havo tho different ntorage
houses, make a proposition to the Pro
duce Exchange, but nothing definite
has yet been done. According to stories,
a clique has formed, and it wishes the
cold storage people' to sell all thoir
spaeo to this clique, and that no out
sider tvill be allowed to put away eggs
unless throught them. Thus it will be
seen, tho quantity of eggs to be put
away will be limited to the abilities of
this clique, which is pretty strong fi
nancially, to carry'the eggs for good
prices. Ono house is willing to accedo
to the requests of tho clique, another
is wavering, but tho third is decidedly
opposed to it, and thero may bo troublo

Don't complain if you fail to get your money's worth when'you go
where they sell cheap drugs, because you are welcome to come to our
Drug Store at any time where you can buy drug cheap. The oft
quoted words of Lincoln that "you can 'fool some people.allthe time
and all the people somo of the time,"is extremely pertinent in this
connection. Taking advantage of a customer's lack of knowledge of
the drug or medicine he buys is not conductive to a successful busi

while others complain of hard times. Don't be misled by flaming
