Should be a Lesson.
HP M W
The unenviable position in which
Senator Fryer lias placed himself,
and constituents should be a lesson
against the policy of electing a man
to office who does not possess es
pecial qualification but is selected
on one isue. Mr. Fryer was an
open supporter of Gov. M.cMillin
for United States Senator and had
but little else in his platform, re
ceiving in return all the influence
of the Governor, who wrote many
personal letters to the voters in the
district. A representative should
be elected to serve fi is constituents
and not the personal ambition of
any man. Paris Press.
Collects $30 for a Goat's Dinner.
Charles J. Allen, a fanner living
near Ogden, la., will shortly receive
six new $5 bills from the treasury

number of bills of the same denom
ination which a goat ate thirteen
years ago. Mr. Allen killed the
goat and dissected its stomach. He:
recovered the bills in a hiuch dam
aged form and has held the pulplike
mass as a memento of the goat's
achievement ever since. Recently
he came to the conclusion that he
needed the money and he sent the
mass which he took from the goat's
stomach to the Treasury Depart
ment to be examined. Experts
quickly determined that the goat's
dinner consisted of six. -s.3 bills, as
Mr. Allen represented, ami upon
their recommendation the Ogden
tanner will be reimbursed to the
extent of $30 for the loss he sustain
ed thirteen years ago. Gouts have
ea'.en money before, but this is the
first case on record where their
meals were recovered and sent to
Washington for redemption. Chi

millinery at 1G-38 Milwaukee Ave
nue, Chicago, says: "During the
late severe weather I caught a dread
ful cold which kept rue awake at
night and made me unfit to attend
my work during the day. One of
my milliners was taking Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy for a severe
cold at that time, which seemed to
relieve her so quickly that I bought
some for myself. It acted like
magic and I began to improve at
once. I am now entirely well and
feel very pleased to acknowledge its
merits." For sale by XV. J. Cox, ,
