Employees of theTin Trust Re
member the Campaign
For instance, at Marwood, a suburb
f Chicago, the Norton Bros, run one
Xf tbe largest tia mills In the united
6tats if not in the world. They are
the pampered children of a robber tar
iff law. In the c-arly days of the cam
paign of ISO! they orpanixtd their em
ployees Into a McKinley marching
club. On the Saturday before election
the yotlns employees were lined up
mJ addressed alxiut as follows:
"Men, I do not desire to tell you how
to vote, but I wish to say to you that
if Bryan Is elected next Tuesday you
need not ci;Oie to work on Wednesday.
If McKinley is defeated, this plant will
be shut down."
I'or weeks previous to that the fetory
was circulated among the employees
and with an air that seemed authorita
tive that If Bryan was elected not
only the tin mills, but other mills and
factories throughout the country, would
have to close down. Only McKinley
could Insure" employment, prosperity
and full dinner pails. The employees
believed the fairy tale, for most of
them were foreign born" and from
those portions of the Kuropean conti
nent where feudalism still lingers.
They were also assured that with the
election of McKinley more employment
would be given and wages would be
advanced. Within three months after
the election wages were reduced twice.
The Maywood employees of the tin
trust have again leen organized into
a marching club and made to parade
In uniform, but it is safe to assert that
not oue-thtrd of "them will this year
vote for the Canton mandarin. 'They
will, for fear of being discharged,
march like "dumb driven cattle" and
wear khaki uniforms, which, in them
selves, are badges of imperialism, but
they cannot lie fooled a second time to
cast a slave's ballot.

The l'utnre of Our Lefts.
Trofessor Yung of the University of
Guef, Switzerland, entertains great
fears, concerning the future of our
lower limbs. This sage Is of the opin
ion that within the next thousand
years human, beings will havo forgot
ten how to use their legs, and that
these limbs, if evolution will not dp
away with them, will serve as mere
ornaments to the rest of the body.
Professor Yung states that at the
present age human beings show a de
cided aversion to personal or physical
locomotion, and this is more manifest
every, time a new automatic traveling
Instrument Is invented and rendered
practical. Steam, electricity, cable
lowcr and the different velocipede ma
chines all bear an influence over us
and. create a dislike for walking, and
the future generations will likely have
the convenience of yteerable airships
at their windows and electric auto
mobiles at their doors, and these con
veyances will be so cheap that almost
every one can own them, ana this
means the doom of our legs.
The latter will be regarded as super
fluous appendages, no use will be made
of them, and who knows but that they
may disappear altogether? But so
much more will our arms develop In
length and strength. These are the
cruel laws of evolution, and It will be
due to their pranks that future gen
erations will again resemble the apes.
There will come another epoch of short
legs and Ijg arms.
Complied With the avr.
"A certain well known Mobile law

of a reputation as a fighter," said a
southern gentleman, "was at one time

Always Face the Engine.
In his mime the late Mr. John Cook,
the great tourist agent, was a man of
iron frame. But when years of rail
way traveling, which averaged annual
ly some 40.000 miles, produced certain
alarming symptoms, he made a dis
covery that may .be worth giving to
the public. lie found that the threat
ened trouble, something spinal, dis
appeared when he no longer sat with
his back to the engine. He always
thereafter faced it. and that the prin
ciple is sound will be borne out by
others whom he advised to do the
same. All who are called upon to do
much railway traveling will be wise to
sit "facing the horses."

The Neatest Town In the World.
Broek. in riolland, is far famed as
the "neatest town in the world." This
town is so fastidious that until a few
years ago horses were not allowed In
its streets for reasons of cleanliness,
and the entire town is as scrupulously
kept as a man-of-war. It is a village of
2,700 inhabitants, the main industry of
which is. the making of Edam cheeses.

The Sensation That Always Makes m
Man a Coward.
"Strange that we are always so cow
ardly in nightmares," remarked a New
Orleans lawyer who has a taste for
the bizarre. "I don't believe anybody
ever lived who stood up and made a
square stand against the amorphous
horror that invariably pursues us in
such visions. When I have a night
mare and the usual monster gets on
my trail, my blood turns to water, and
my conduct would disgrace a sheep. I
am beside myself with stark, down
right fear, aud I have no idea left in
my head except to run like a rabbit.
All pride, self respect, dread of ridicule
and even the instinct of self defense
are scattered to the winds, and I be
lieve, honestly, I would be capable of
any infamy in order to escape. I have
no hesitation in confessing this, be
cause, as far n3 I have been able to
find out, everybody acts exactly the
same way in the throes of nightmare,
and I feel certain I would not make
such a pitiable spectacle of myself in
real life, no matter what might befall.
"I think that the explanation of the
nightmare panic is to be found in the
fact that the dream is almost invari
ably accompanied by a sense of suffo
cation. It is well established that
choking the 'shutting off of one's
wind,' to use a homely phrase has an
effect upon the mind which Is entirely
distinct and different from that pro
duced by any other form of pain or
peril. It fills the victim with such hor
ror aud distraction that he is for the
moment insane. He will do anything
to get relief. This has been brought
out on more than one occasion in the
defense of men who have been choked
and killed their assailants, and judges
have held that the circumstances of
such an attack should be given special
consideration as extenuating the deed.
In dreams the entire nervous system is
relaxed, and it Is natural to suppose
that the mental effect of suffocation
would be Intensified. At least, that is
the best apology I have to offer for my
sprints through nightmare laud." New
Habit In a Horse's Wort.
''When I retired from the contract
ing business a short time ago," said a
well known man, "I hd a number of
horses that I was anxious to dispose
of. Among them was one named Jer
ry, which for several years had been
used to working on a drum. In such
work a horse becomes accustomed to
lifting his feet high to avoid striking
the hoisting ropes. When the horses
were put under the hammer, Jerr7
went to a Harlem grocer.
"About a week later the purchaser
of Jerry called at my house and told
me that he had a lot of trouble with
the horse. He said that Jerry would
go a short distance, when he woujd
stop short and lift his feet high, aud
after doing this would go a little far
ther, only to repeat it again. I told the
grocer why the horse stopped short
and lifted his feet and also advised
him to look up some contractor and
sell the animal to him for hoisting pur
poses, lie did so, notifying me that he
received a larger price than he paid
me for the horse." New York Sun.
How He Hot It.
In one of Chaunccy M. Dcpew's
stories he told of meeting a man as
funny as himself.
"One day," said Sir. Depew, "I met
a soldier who had been wounded in the
face. He was a Union man, and I
asked him in which battle he had been
" 'In the last battle of Bull Run. sir,'
" 'But how could you get hit In the
face at Bull Run?" I asked.
" 'Well, sir.' said the man. half apol
ogetically, 'after I had run a mile or
two I got careless and looked back.' "

It is the devout fish of nearly all people to live to a ripe old age.
None of us want to die younij. This universal desire can be realized if
care be taken of the health in early and middle life. A little precaution then
will add many years to our existence. Lteath can be kept away a long
time. Happy, healthy old age will be the lot of the woman who prompfy
corrects the ailments which aiffcet her sex. In youth, Wine of Cardui will
take the female child safely over the dividing line between girlhood and
womanhood. As a. wife she needs it to help her through the trials of
pregnancy and childbirth with as little discomfort as possible. At the
Change of Life it will help her over the dangerous place that appears in
her pathway between 40 and 50- . Then will come many years of truly
blissful existence. She will grow eld slowly and uracefully. To the last
the will preserve that charm and t:au!fkwhich are always characteristic
