from McKinley. It will deal with
the issues confronting the country

No difference what the President
may say in his message, he is ex

magnet Is cautiously brought near the
patient's eye. If a piece of Bteel or
Iron Is embedded In the eyeball, the
patient experiences a sharp pain as the
metallic sliver forces lu way through

The injury to the eye Is said to be less
than that caused by using a knife.

he did not omit a word of It. In vain
did the doctor repeatedly clear his
throat as a reminder to the pope to
economise his strength. His holiness
kept on, and even purposely raised his
voice. After finishing bis address he
sent for Dr. Lapponl, handed him the
powder, and said, laughing: "Here,
my dear doctor, take your powder
