is enough to say that he has made the

He is not running tor the office for
the honor there is ill it, but he wants
it for the salary. That is now his only
dependence for a living, and we hope
he will be retained for he is surely
deserving of that much at the bauds
of the citizens ol this cily.

Long before some of the present
members of the City Council were
lwirn this city was more pro-peroiis
than it is to-day. and yet they have the
cheek to say that they have done great
things since the" have been at the

is a single improvement that has been i
inxiiguratcd since they took charge
of the city government? Point us out
! oue and we will sav amen.
Since the retrenchment and re

he don't want an otr.ee in w hich there
is less than thirteen ce'tt" per day and
very little honor, and thus it goes.

BEAUTY IN THE HUMAN FORM,

Searching for the highest standards
of human form, we discover that
manly beauty and wommly beauty
differ essentially. It is agreed that
the type of manly proportion includes
a comparativelv large head, wide
shoulders, rather s, pi are, a torso ta
pering to a rout I acted pelvis, while
the whole may be seven and a half

SiKixtJFiKi.i). Ilk. March 11. The
Senatorial tight waJ practica'ly ended
last night when Farmers Alliance'
Representatives Moore and Cockrell
issued an address stating that they
would vote no longer for A. J.
Strceter, but would change their votci
lo John M. Palmer on the first ballot
to-daT. Such a pledife placed victory
U orict on the Palmer standard and
to-day's proceedings were the tri
umphant celebration 01 the victory
Yesterday was a double Waterloo
and two Napoleons went down
gether A. J. Stretter aud -Long''
Jones. The defection of Cockrell anil
Moore from the Strceter cause at the
very moment of victory was the sort
of a shock th-it knocks men out ot
'time before thev realise what bits
them. There Is no doubt that it fell
like a thunderbolt on the head of
-Long" Jones. When that would-bd
Senatorial Warwick arrived from
Chicago late Monday night be was
radiant, flushed with anticipated vic
tory. He confidently predicted that
there "would be an election on the
second ballot Tuesday," and was al
ready iu imagination reaping the
glory of his victory over the Palmer
forces. Mr. Jones was counting upon
the undeniable fact that four of the
five Oglesby men were even then"
whipped into line for Stret ter, and
that the fifth, Senator Evans; would
surely cast the electing vote when hd
saw 102 men supporting the combine
candidate. Hut I-oug" Jones wa
reconing without his hot sadly, and
as soon as he saw Taubeneck of the
Uig Three" he learned the startling
news of the revolt of Cockrell and
General Palmer was elected on fhe
154th ballot, Messrs. Moore and Cock
rell voting for him.
