The congressman arrived at tbe

arrived within a few minutes of
each other, and stealthily entered
one at a time, and each puk a past

command a viow I the entrance.
It happened that none of the four
knew of the presence of the other
three, and when the sombre light of
tbe dawning dsy revealed to each
the other three," there was mutual
surprise and mutual disgust. Taess

Walter Johnson, T. H. Thomas, II C,

about how the republicans bad gone

they felt that the proof of the faith
of the supplicant on this occasion
6hould be a declaration as to how be

otber hand, the friends of Johnson
poured into the ear of the
congressman f.11 about the bai e

editor had devoted himself of

in the Into campaign. The claims of
Mr. Johnson were chiefly ia the

WORDS OF SYMPATHY.
Knox Coaaty'a Trlbnta to tha Lata WUI
The Knox county bar has adopted
the folio .ving resolutions:
"The bar of Knox county have
learned with sincere regret of the
death of William Glenn, tbe son of a
presiding judge of our circuit court,
and we extend to his honor, in his
noble character as a citizen and a
father, and to his companion in this
bereavement, his sorrowing wife, our
earnest and heartfelt sympathy.
"In the death of William Glenn,
journalism has lost a bright and ac
tive worker, society a worthy mem
ber and the state a useful and honor
able citizen; but above all our hon
ored jadge and his wife must suffer
one more break in their family circle
and mourn tbe loss of a loved son.

We request the presiding judge of
this court to order these proceedings
to bo spread upon the records cf this
court and that tbe clerk of thisconrt
present to Hon. J. J. G:ecn, his wife
and family, a copy of the 8im.
Tbe resolutions wpre substqnently
presented to Judge Bigelow, who on
receiving them raid that he agreed
heartily with the bar in the senti
ment of the resolutions, and that he
gladly united his sympathy with
theirs over tbe great loss sustained
by Judge Glenn and his wife in the
death of their son. He eaid that he
did not have an extended acquaint
ance with Mr. Glenn, but from a
that he heard he judged that he was
a man of excellent character. He
then ordered that the resolutions le
spread on the record as directed.

Among manufacturers, the value
of a trade mark for their products is
coming to te well understood. When
people get in the way of using an
article which proves meritorious and
wnicn tney buy and buy again, tney
soon come to know that article by
some distinct name or in connection
with some catchy line.
some ooys stood watsblng a
painter penciling with his brush on
a grocer's glass window the word
"Postum," then was quickly
painted the round red disk, and one
of the boys said to the otber. -It
makes red blood, that is the health
coffee that boys can drink."
There wss no question about
Postum and its trade mark being fa
miliar to him. When an article has
become so popular that its name is
truly a household wotd and becomes
a part of everyone's vocabulary, even
to that of the children, the trada
mark or name has become a valuable
franchise, which is usually protected
from confiscation by being registered
in the patent office, and some of these
trade mnrs are valued at hundreds
of thousands of do!lars, as they pro-
weut jarge ousmees interests from un
scrupulous persons or firms who
would pirate tha name if not retained
by the strong arm of the law.
A reliiblc grocer will never offer a
cheap or weak imitation cf a geau
ine original artic.'e because he hap
pens to make a little extra proiit.
Bat it is well to observe that when
genuine Postum Cereal coffee is ord
ered, that you get Postum and not a
spurious imitation offered as "just
