Poindexter's manager was in Ellens
burg last week, and according to the
Capital of that city he was not enthu
siastically received. The Capital thinks
Poindexter Bhould go to the democrats,
where he belongs.
HFather Adams of Gonzaga College,
Spokane, who is authority on matters
astronomical, says that Halley's comet
will be visible in the western sky after
May 25 and will be more plain than
now. After May 25 it will be the even
ing star, coming over the horizon soon
after the setting of the sun.
The Palouse Republic remarks that it
is "now admitted that President Taft's
legislative program is being blocked by
the insurgents and democrats in the
United States senate, who are working
together hand iv baud." The people
are beginning to find out what insur
gency really means.
The Puyallup Republican says: "The
frantic fuss Tacoma and Seattle are
making over the census ib becoming
wearisome. Earnest effort to get a full
and honest count is commendable, but
the thing has been overdone in these
rival cities. In both Tacoma and Seat
tle hundreds of non residents have been
registered by the special enumerators,
and probably several hundred have been
counted in both cities." There is reason
to believe the same state of effiirs exist
at Spokane. Instances can be cited to
prove it. This is running the booster
business into the ground.
Last Sunday was observed through
out the land bb Mothers' Day. The
origioator of Mothers' Day was Miss
Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia, who, five
years ago, on the death of her mother,
BBt aside a day of remembrance. She
began to spread her plan for a day of
universal remembrance for mothers who
have passed to the great unknown. She
wrote to editors, ministers, men in pub
lic places and heads of fraternities, ask
ing their aid. Appealing as it did to
the best and dpepest sentiment of the
human heart, the idea gained such unani
mous support that the tribute to mother
was a success from the start.
It is a pity the system employed in
the state treasurer's office could not be
employed in all the public offices of the
state. J. F. Leghorn, a member of the
state bureau of inspection and super
vision of public offices, has this to say
about the state treasurer's office:
"There is one thing that can be said for
the state of Washington, and that is not
a boHHt, either. The state treasurer's
office in the best systematized and most
economically run office in the United
States, in proportion to size. The office
force coneiets of one bookkeeper and a
stenographer, and $3,000,000 is on the
books, but we can check the office in a
Tery few minutes. It is a splendid sys
The Inland Herald is right when it
says that "the net result of the insurgent
movement thus far has been to tie up in
congress the legislation to which the re
publican party committed itself in the
last national platforoi. The insurgents
have a total strength of about 35 votes
which, added to the democratic minor
ity, is able to hinder and defeat any pro
gressive legislation, and this is what has
happened. And the result willj be that
the democratic party will be able to go
before the public next fall with the claim
that the republicans have not made
their pledges good." Republican voters
should not be misled by this so called in
•urgent movement. It is the wolf in
The Wenatchee Republic thinks the
"insurgent" movement, in the state of
Washington at least, is on the wane, and
the Republic is undoubtedly right. The
reason for this, declares the Republic, is
that "Miles Poindexter, who has consti
tuted himself the leader of insurgency ia
this commonwealth, is untrustworthy
and incompetent. He has evidenced his
dishonesty by subverting the alleged
progressive cause to his ambition by
sacrificing hie followers in an attempt to
aggrandize himself. If he were possessed
of ability, he might have concealed his
treachery; but bis incapability is evi
denced by the fact that be has let bis
personality become more important than
bis professed principles."
A coroner's jury in Sao Francisco com
pletely exonerated Owen Moran for kill
ing Tommy McCarthy in the prize ring
iast week. This verdict was expected,
of coarse. According to the jury's ver
dict it was an "accident." According to
the statement of a physician death did
not result from the encounter with fists,
but because McCarthy Btruek the back
of bin head on the cruel, bard floor, or
against the side of the ring which was
not padded, breaking his skull. The
fact that he was smanhed in the face by
the fist of Moran apparently had nothing
to do with his striking on bis head,
causing death. But this is a matter of
little concern outside of those who look
upon pugilistic encounters as an eleva
ting and civilizing influence. San Fran
cisco will lose nothing morally, intellect
ually or financially by the taking off of
McCarthy; and since we have seen so
many quirks in the law coming from
that city we are prepared to accept al
most anything—even that the fist of
Moran had nothing to do with the kill
ing of McCarthy.
F»ei.ng Is Latent, but It Is a Fact.
As lung as these Southern voters can
get a prospective tariff without them
selves voting for the protective party
that now controls the government they
will treat the issue as negligible in their
own action. But let the duties protect
ing the articles they produce be threat
ened with removal and they would
realize that the time had come to act at
their own ballot boxes. Mr. Sherman
asserts that the tariff now in effect would
have been lower in some articles if South
ern democrats in congress bad not
opposed the admission of raw materials
that would compete with Southern pro
ducts. This is one of the political ques
tions in abeyance because republican
tariffs are a benefit to the people of all
the states. But democratic leaders need
not imagine that they can strike down
protection and hold the South solid for
the party. They count upon gaining
congressional seats in the North by a
free trade crusade, but fancy it is impos
sible thereby to lose any seats in the
South. The protective feeling of the
South is latent, but it is a fact.—St.
Louis Globe Democrat.
CURE FOR MENINGITIS.
Dp. Flexner's Serum Produces Excel-
The first cure fur cerebro-spinal
meningitis by means of Intra-ventricu
lar injections of the Flexner serum
was made recently at a meeting of
physicians and surgeons at the New
York Academy of Medicine. That
this disease, which proves fatal in
variably in the cases of children un
der two years, has been mastered
through the research of Dr. Simon
Flexner, he:Hl of the Rockefeller In
stitute of Medical Research, was ad
mitted scarcely without opposition by
the physicians after careful considera
tion of the data presented by Dr.
Louis Fischer of the Sydenham hos
pital, who successfully employed the
The process employed by Dr. Fischer
was to inject a quantity of the Flex
ner fluid into the right ventricle of
the brain, the Intercrnnial cavity be
ing aspirated and as much fluid as
possible being drained off. The cavity
was then trashed with a normal salt
solution and the serum again injected.
Lumbar inject ions also were made,
the result being a rapid improvement
in the condition of the infantile pa
tient. The Infant, which in this case
was two months old, was cured after
seven weeks' treatment, and its condi
tion now is that of a normal child en
joying the best of health.
"The treatment marks a distinct
epoch In the history of medicine," said
Dr. Fischer. "It has convinced me
that the Flexner serum will minimize
the danger of death in infants under
two years of age, whereas before Its
introduction by Dr. Flexner the per
centage of deaths was 100. That the
serum will prove a boon to children
attacked by cerebro-spinal meningitis
seems to me a certainty."

kind for this purpose and puts the
seed in the ground, where it is safe
from the wind and rain that often
wash away seed sown broadcast.
The machine sows eight rows at a
time on a strip sixteen inches wide,
and by its use an area of seventy
square feet can be gone over in an

loosens the soil, relieves the sod of its
root bound condition and cultivates.

HARM OF HASTY EATING.

It must be sipped, not used as an agent

Many children regard a meal as a

their food hastily, with head bent and
chest contracted. They should be halt

by a request to quietly finish the meal
at the table. In walking or running
on the street the blood is drawn away
from the digestive organs to the legs,
and the important process is thus in
The child who rushes through his
meal despite all protest should be made
to wait quietly while the other more
deliberate eaters finish. This will soon
grow monotonous, and it will dawn
upon his or her mind that it is better
to eat with the family at a speed com
patible with health and refinement
than to hasten through and gain no
time in the end.
Hasty eating will explain many cases
of indigestion and nonassimilation. If
parents are cognizant of its harmful
results there will be a healthier eondl
tion of children and future adults.
Double the time of every meal, and
you will decimate the ills that flesh is
heir to. And begin with the children.
A Quinine Anaesthetic.
The .£rift of Dr. Henry Thibault of
Scott, Ark., to science is the discovery
that common quinine is a superior an
aesthetic to any other in medical
knowledge. This conclusion has been
corroborated by the faculty of the
medical college of the University of
Kansas. The effect of quinine when
injected locally lasts for days, so that
if the tonsils are removed or bones are
cut from the nose there are no after
pains for many days. Cocaine loses its
power shortly after an operation. Qui
nine is absolutely safe, as quarts of it
may be used without poisonous effect.
Cocaine has a toxic effect save in
small doses. Quinine hardens the tis
sues into which it is introduced, pre
venting hemorrhages after operations.
Cocaine does not do this. Absolute
vindication of these claims has just
been announced by Dr. Arthur B.
Hertzler. assistant professor of sur
gery in the University of Kansas Med
ical college at Rosedale; Dr. Ford B.
Rogers of the college dispensary and
Dr. Roger B. Brewster, a special inves
tigator. The results made public by
these doctors are the fruits of six
months' experiments in the college
