HEALTH IN OLD AGE,PLATFOR
A N OLD WOMAN FINDS THE
TRUE SOURCE O VITALITY.
-A Reporter's Interesting Interview With
Lady of Seventy-two Year*, Who Tcllt
a Marvelous Story.
From the Union, Port Jervis, N. Y.
But a short time ago, in a distant
toart of the country, we heard of a
cure by the use of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, which seemed almost marvelous,
and more recently another substantial
evidence of their value reached our
cars. Being- of an inquiring turn of
mind, and wishing to kn ow Just how
much there was in the story, a reporter.
Was sent to interview the person said'
to be thus benefited. If the narrative
as it had reached our ears was true,
It was only simple justice to let it be
knownif it proved untrue, it would be
Well to kn ow it.
The person alluded to above as having'
been thus greatly benefited by the use'
pf Pink Pills is Mrs. Jane Hotalen, of
Hainesville, N. J., a pleasant hamlet in
Sussex County, about fifteen miles from
this office. The reporter had no diffi
culty in finding Mrs. Hotalen. She is a/
pleasant-faced old lady, looking to be
sixty-five, but is. in reality seventy-two
years of age. After a few preliminary
remarks in explanation of the call she
was asked if she had any objection to
giving us the details of the case and
how she came to try this now famous
"Not at all," said she. "If my expe
rience can be of a ny good to others, I
am sure they are welco me to itIt can
do me no harm."
"When were you taken sick and what
was the nature of the malady?"
"It was about two years ago. The
trouble was rheumatic in character
nciatica, they called itand it was very
painful Indeed. The difficulty began in
my hip and extended the whole length
of the limb, crippling me completely.
I suffered Intensely from It, and the or
dinary treatment gave rne not the
slightest alleviation. I was under treat

worse instead of better, and was fast be

article in a paper, in which it was stated
that a Mr. Struble, of Branchville. a
village in this county, had been greatly

that it would be a go od plan to try
them. ut I was skeptical in regard
to their valueIn fact, I had no con
fidence in their efficacy, and rather
laughed at the suggestion. But the
trouble increased and I was badly crip

about to visit a neighboring town and
suggested again that it mig ht be well
to try this much-talked-of remedy, and
then consented. bought me a box
of them, and I began taking them at
once. At the end of a week I noted a
marked improvement, and by the time
I had taken the first box I was able to
walk without a cane. I continued their
use, taking several boxes, and am, as
you see, in a very comfortable state of

"None whatever. They never dis

as you see, to attend to my own work.
The reporter thanked Mrs. Hotalen
for her courtesy and bade her goc
day. It is not often that one can wit
ness such a complete recovery from
such a pertinacious trouble at such an
advanced age, and sjich instances can
hot fail to produce a profound impres
sion. Readers of the Union may rely
on the absolute accuracy of all the
here given nothing has
een exaggerated, nothing withheld.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, In
e. condensed form, all the elements nec
essary to give new life and richness
to the blood and restore shattered
taerves. Pink Pills are sold by all deal
ers, or will be sent postpaid on receipt
of price, by addressing Dr. Williams'

rtTital:in:i for Fodder.
It Is gratifying to see so many American
farmers putting tlrelr waste places or spare
lands Into rutaliasns and turnips for early
Tall or long winter feeding. They are get
ting the European Idea of root crops.
there the turnips and rutabagas are sown
broadcast as are almost all grains, and if
not desired ns roots, the foliage Is used for
freen food. Just Imagine the results of
twenty acre oat patch treated In this way
Think of the tremendous amount of green
Todder, magnificent fodder too,coming Into
Tul play in hot August and September.
Why a field of rutabagas aud turnips, there
for cattle fod, Is worth almost as much as
the oats gathered therefrom. Another god
plan is to sow rutabaga seed, especially the
variety krown as Salzer's, La Crosse, Wis.
Mammoth Russian variety, or his Milk
Globe turnip sort, at the rate of one half
pound per acre, into the cornfield, Just be
fore the last cultivation. This wll give you
two good cropsone of corn, and the other
t rots from the same land. One advantage
of the jrutabaga is that it can be sown at
any time of the summer for green food,
while a sowing tlie later part of July is
the best In northern states for big, sweet,
juicy rots for winter storage and use.

St. Louis, June 13.The platform as
adopted Is as follows:
The Republicans of the United States,
assembled by their representatives In na
tloi.a! convertion, appealing for the popu
lar and historical justification of their
claims to the matchless achievements of
thirty years of Republican rule, earnestly
aid confidently nddnts the.uselves to the
awakened intelligence, experience and con
science of tticlr countrymen In the following
declaration of facts and principles:
For the lirst time since the civil war,
the American people have witnessed the
calamitous consequences of full, and un
restricted Democratic conU'oi of the gov
ernment. It has been a record of un
paralleled Incapacity, dishonor and disaster,
in administrative management It has ruth
lessly sacrificed Indispensable revenue, en
tailed an unceasing deficit, eked out ordi
nary current expenses with borrowed money,
piled up the public debt by $20:1,000,000 In
time of peace, forced an adverse balance of
trade, kept perpetual menace hanging
over the redemption fund, pawned American
credit to alien syndicates, and reversed all
the measures and results o'f successful Re
publican rule. In the broad effe.-ts of Its
policy It has precipitated panic, blighted In
dustry and trude with prolonged depression,
closed factories, reduced work and wages,
halted enterprise and crippled Ameriem pro*
ductlon while stimulating foreign produc
tion for the American market. Every eon
sderatlon of public safety and Individual in
terest demands that the government shall
be rescued from the hands of those who
have shown 'themselves incapable to conduct
It without disaster nt home and dishonor
abroad, and shall be restored to the party
which for thirty years administered it with
unequaled success and prosperity. And in
this connection we heartily indorse the wis
dom, patriotism and the success of the ad
ministration of President Harrison.
Wo renew and emphasize our allegiance
to the policy of protection as the bulwark
of American industrial Independence and
the foundaton of American development
and prosperity. This true American policy
taxes foreign products and encourages
home Industry It puts the burden of rev
enue on foreign goods it secures the Amer
ican market for the American producer
It upholds the American standard of wages
for the American worklngman It puts the
factory by the side of the farm and makes
the American farmer less dependent on
general thrift, and founds the strength of
all on the strength of each. In its reason
able application, It Is just, fair and Impar
tial, equally opposed to foreign control and
domestic monopoly, to sectional discrim
ination and individual favoritism. We de
nounce the present Democratic tariff as sec
tional. Injurious to the public credit and
destructive to business enterprise. We de
mand such an equitable tariff on foreign
imports which come Into competition with
American products as will not only fur
nish adequate revenue for the necessary
expenses of the government, but still pro
tect American laboi from degradation to
the wage level of other lands. We are not
pledged to any particular schedules. The
question of rates Is a practical question,
to be governed by the conditions of the
time and of production. The ruling and un
compromising principle Is the protection
and development of American labor and
Industry. The country demands a right set
tlement aud then It wants rest.
We believe the repeal of the reciprocity
arrangements negotiated by the last Repub
lican administration was a national ca
lamity, and we demand their renewal on
such terms as wIU equalize our trade with
other nations, remove the restrictions
which now obstruct the sale of American
products In the ports of other countries,
and secure enlarged markets for the pro
ducts of our farms, forests and factories.
Protection and reciprocity are the meas
ures of Republican policy and go hand In
hand. Democratic rule has recklessly
struck down both, and both must be re
established. Protection for what we pro
duce free admission for the necessaries of
life which we do not produce reciprocal
agreement of mutual interests which gain
open markets for us in return fov our open
markets to others. Protection builds do
mestic industry and trade, and secures our
own market for ourselves reciprocity
builds up foreign trade and finds an out
let for our surplus.
Wo condemn the present administration
for not keeping faith with the sugar pro
ducers of this country. The Republican
party favors such protection as will lead
to the production on American soil of all
the sugar which the American people use,
and for which they pay other countries
more than $100,000,000 annually.
To all our productsto those of tho
mine and field, as well ns those of the
shop and the factoryto hemp, to wool,
the producers of the great Industry of
sheep husbandry, us well as to the fin
ished woolens of the mills,we promise
the most ample protection.
We favor restoring the early American
policy of dlscrlmiuatlng duties for tho
upbuilding of our merchant marine and
the protection of our shipping in the for
eign carrying trade, so that American
carrying ships, the product of American
labor, employed In American shipyards,
sailing under the stars and stripes, and
manned, officered aud owned by Americans
may regain the carrying of our foreign
The Republican party Is unreservedly
for sound money. It caused tho enactment
of the law providing for the resumption
of specie payments Jth 1879 since then
every dollar has been as good as gold.
We are unalterably apposed to every
measure calculated to debase our cur
rency or impair the credit of our country.
We are therefore opposed to the free coin
age of silver, except by International
agreement with tho loading commercial
nations of the world, which we pledge our
selves to promote, and until such agree
ment can bo obtained, the existing gold
standard must be maintained at parity
with gold, and wo favor measures de
signed to maintain Inviolably the obliga
tions of the United States and all our
money, whether coin or paper, nt the
present standard, the standard of the most
enlightened nations of the earth.
The veterans of the Union army deserve
and should receive tnlr treatment and gen
erous recognition. Whenever practicable,
they should bo given tho preference in the
matter of employment, and they are en
titled to the enactment of such lawa as
are best calculated to secure tho fulfill
ment of tho pledges made to them In the
dark days of tho conntry'a peril. We de
nounce the practice In the pension bureau,
so recklessly and unjustly carried on by
the present administration^ of reducing
pensions arbitrarily, droppllig names from
the roll*, as deserving the severest con
demnation of tho American people.
O'.ir foreign policy should at all times
firm, generous and digni/.ed. and all our
interests in tho Vy'esternl hemisphere care
fully watched and guarded. The Hawaiian
islands should be
States and no
mitted to Interfe
aragu.tn canal should built, owned and
operated by tho United States: and by the
purchase of the Daniel islands we should
secure a proper and lunch-needed naval
station In the West fydieg.
The mas.acres in Arnienia bare aroused
the deep sympathy anjd just indiguation
an a guarded lae Hawaiia
be contro/i".l by the Fnited
foreign power should be per
rfer wifb them: the Nie-
of tho American people and we believe
that the United States should exorcise ali
the Influence It con properly exert to bring
these atrocities to an end. In Turkey,
American residents have boon exposed to
the gravest dangers and American property
destroyed. There and everywhere, Ameri
can citizens aud American property must
be absolutely protected at all hazards and
at any cost.
We reassert tho Monroe doctrine In its
full extent aud we reaffirm the right of
the United States to give the doctrine ef
fect by responding to the appeals of any
American state for friendly Intervention
in case of European encroachment. Wo
have not interfered nnd shall not interfere
with the existing possessions of any Euro
pean power In this hemisphere, but those
possessions must not. on any pretext, bo
extended. We hopefully look forward to
the eventful withdrawal of the European
powers from this hemisphere, and to the
ultin'iuto union of all tho English-speaking
part of the continent by the free consent
of Its Inhabitants.
From the hour of achieving their own
Independence, the people of the United
States have regarded with sympathy tho
struggles of other American peoples to
free themselves from European domina
tion. We watch with deep and abiding In
terest the heroic battle of tho Cuban pa
triots against cruelty and oppression, and
our best hopes go out for the full success of
their determined contest for liberty. The
government of Spain, having lost control of
Cuba and belug unable to protect the pro
perty or lives of resident American citizens,
or to comply with Its treaty obligations, wo
believe that the government of the United
States should actively use Its Influence to
restore peace and give Independence to
The peace and security of the republic
nnd the maintenance of Its rightful In
fluence among the nations of the earth,
demand a naval power commensurate with
its position and responsibility. We, there
fore, favor the continued enlargement of
tho navy and complete system of harbor
and sea coast defenses.
For the protection of the quality of our
American citizenship and the wages of our
worlcingrncn against the fatal competition
of low-priced labor, we demand that the im
migration laws be thoroughly enforced and
so extended as to exclude from entrnnce to
the United States those who can neither
read nor write.
The civil service law was placed on tho
statute book by the Republican party,
which has always sustained It, and we re
new onr repeated declarations that it shall
bo thoroughly and honestly enforced and
extended wherever practicable.
We demand that every citizen of tho
United States shall bo allowed to cast one
free and unrestricted ballot, and that stirli
ballot shall be counted nnd returned as cast.
We proclaim onr unqualified condemna
tion of tho uncivilized and barbarous prac
tice, well known as lynching or killing hu
man beings, suspected or charged with
crime, without process of law.
We favor the creation of a national board
of arbitration to settle and adjust differ
ences which may arise between employers
tind employed engaged In Interstate com
We believe In nn Immediate return to
the free homestead policy of the Repub
lican party, and urge the passage by con
gress of the satisfactory free homestead
measure which has already passed the house
and Is now ponding in the senate.
We favor the admission of the remain
ing territories at the earliest practicable
date, having due regard to tho Interests of
the people of the territories and of the
United States. All tho federal officers ap
pointed for the territories should be elected
from bona fide residents thereof, and tho
right of self-government should be accord
ed ns far as practicable.
We believe the citizens of Alaska should
have representation In tho congress of the
United States to the end that needful legis
lation may be Intelligently enacted.
We sympathize with alt wise and lerfill
matc efforts to lessen and prevent the avlls
of Intemperance and promote morality./
The Republican party Is mindful of/ the
rights and Interests of women. Protection
of American Industries Includes equal op
portunities, equal pay for equal worjc and
protection to the home. We favor the ad
mission of women to wider spheres of use
fulness, and welcome their co-operation In
rescuing tho country from Democratic and
Populist mismanagement and misrule.
Such are the principles and policies of
the Ropubllenn party. By these principles
we will abide and these policies hve will
put Into execution. We ask for tjiera the
considerate judgment of the American
people. Confident alike in the hlfctory of
our great party and In the justlci' of our
cause, we present our platform land our
candidates in the full assnrance ,'lhnt the

How tbe Mother Looks
Let us take a glance at tho private
life of our foxes, says the Country
House. The vixen lays up her cubs in
early Bpring, in mild winters very often
In January and February, but I should
say that most cubs are born in March
and April. She chooses a nice, quiet
place to draw her earth: often some
cornfield is chosen that has been al
ready sown, for foxes are very clever
and eoon discover that a field that has
been worked is not likely to be dis
turbed for some time. She selects as
suitable bank and in that produces her
cubs, which average, as a rule, from
five to seven in number. At first, of
course, they eat nothing but live en
tirely upon their mother's milk, like
puppies, but soon they require more
uourlshment and nature prompts their
fond parent to provide them with some
thing more substantial. This she does
by eating small rabbits, birds, rats and
beetles, which on arriving home she
casts up for her family In exactly the
same way as a dog does for her young.
As soon as the cubs grow big enough
to come out of tbe earth and play about
the vixen removes them to another
?arth where there is a plentiful supply
of wateras little foxes are thirsty
'ittle souls and require plenty of drink.
One of the most charming sights Is to
see a family of baby foxes at play. The
vixen is now assisted by her spouse in
providing for her family, and they
Doth bring in young birds, rabbits, etc.
A fox larder is one of the most wonder
ful sights I know of, and certainly our
friend reynard Is very catholic in his
tastes, for nothing comes amiss to him,
from a beetle or cockshafer to a young
lamb. Rabbits also form a largo Item
in his bill of fare, but moles and rats are
the staple food,so that it is not all dam
age that our little Red Rover accom
plishes. No doubt a hungry vixen is
not particular, but one cannot blame
her if she helps herself a bit too freely,
for it is hard for her to travel far for
her young one's support.
Fox stories that have happened with
in my knowledge have been many and
various. On one occasion a very nice
litter of cubs was brought to the house.
They were too young to do well without
their mother and with one exception
they all died but this little survivor
was adopted by a Pomeranian dog,
who at the time had a litter of puppies,
and took to her foundling quite hap
pily. This cub grew up and used to
come in to dessert with the rest of the
dogs and would sit up and smoke a
pipe. They all lived in the pantry and
were quite a happy family, living to
gether until the cub was a year old,
when it broke its chain and escaped.
After three or four days it returned
and from time to time used to go and
tcome at its will but, alas, one day
never returned! I never heard of her
death, so we may hope she lived to a
good old age. In the Fitzwilliam coun
try I once saw a very pretty fox that
bad three while pads, but I never saw
it but once again. In Devonshire a
fox used always to live on the top of a
pheasant stack in one of the coverts
he was always to be found there and
in the summer did not mind people
walking past the stack but directly
.he hunting season began the shutting
of the gato was quite enough for our
friend, who left at once. He was
Hinted for several seasons, but never
aught. He was a very beautiful fox,
A'ith a great deal of white about his
.hroat and neck.
The Snake Ilodoems IIImsHf.
One of the attaches of the United
States geological survey tells a wonder
!ul snake story, and he claims it is true.
So does his wife, who was one of the
parties to it. Both are favorably
known in this city, but as there is
much doubt expressed about their
story, they prefer that their names
hall not be given for the present.
According to the gentleman, while in
the far west in the early part of last
summer, he ran across a rattlesnake.
The snake was apparently in great
agony and, upon examination, it was
found that a thorn was sticking through
it. The gentleman was an expert in
handling snakes and he had no diffi
culty in pulling out the thorn, much to
the relief of the rattler. Three months
ater he visited the same place and 'tear
the same spot found the same snake.
He packed it up in a box and decided
to bring it to Washington.
A few nights afterward the gentle
man and his wife arrived in a promis
ing western town and took quarters at
a hotel. During the night a thief en
tered the room and would have got
away with considerable plunder had
oot the snake, in his gratitude for kind
ness shown him, stuck his tail out of
the window and given a rattle which
i.ttracted the attention of the f.olice.
