IN OLD ACE As people get
old their bodies dry up, like plants
when winter approaches. Their
skin wrinkles and their joints
harden. The back aches. The
shoulders and arms get lame.
The legs become weak. The feet
are tender and sore. The natural
oils of the body are ex
hausted, and something is
needed to produce the
strength and vigor that
Nature herself supplies in
the earlier years of life. .
The best thing for this
is Omega Oil. It is a god

POLYGAMY THE ISSUE
House Has an Interesting Hour
Over a Matter of Money
LAHDIS WOULD BEAND BIGAMISTS
Kijijr of Utah Proposes to Rrand Some
Other Lawbreakers Proposed
Washington, Jan. 31. Tbe antl
polygamy crusade, which resulted iu
driving Uolwrts out of the house of
representatives from his seat at the
last session had au echo iu the house
yesterday during the consideration of
the agricultural appropriation bill.
When the section making the appro
priations for agricultural colleges of
the several states was reached I.audis
of Indiana offered an amendment pro
viding that no money should be paid
to the college In Utah until the secre
tary of agriculture was satisfied that
no trustee or teaclier in the institution
practiced polygamy. The amendment
came as a complete surprise. King,
who succeeded IJoberts, tried in vain
to head it off with a point of order
end tlieu inveighed agaitist it as sim
ply au aftermath of the Itoberts cru
sade. He insisted that polygamy was
a thing of th past.
Kins; Retaliates on Indiana.
Laudis replied by alleging that two
of the professors of the I'tah Agri
cultural college were polygamists, and
that one of the trustees had seven
wives and thirty-seveir children. I'p
on this showing the house adopted the
nmendmeut. whcreuiKin Kiugretaliated
by offering an amendment providing
that none of theruonpy should go toagri
cultural colleges in any state whose in
structors or trustee have engaged in
lynching or been guilty of adultery or
fornication. He afterwards modified
it so as to apply only to the agri
cultural college of Indiana. It was. of
course, overwhelmingly defeated. Sub
sequently, when the bill was reported
to the house, the Land is amendment
was stricken out by a vote of CS) to 19.
Friends of tbe Fanner In Kvidence.
The "friends of the farmer" were
very much in evidence during the day.
and against au aggressive opiositlon
led "by Mahon of Pennsylvania voted
into the bill an additional appropria
tion of $oO,(MX for "fanners' bulletins."
Mahon inveighed against the alleged
friends of the farmers who were al
ways howling against railroads and
prating of their friendship for the
farmers. The farmers of Pennsylvania,
he said, knew more about agriculture
in an hour than those people over
there at the department did In a week.
The secret of the prosperity of the
farmers of his state was that iu the
neighborhood of every city and town
ihere was a manufacturing plant
which afforded the -best market for
their products which the world pos
sessed. - - - -
DEMURS TO AN INQUISITION.
Secretary long Thinks Annapolis Is Not
Doing Any Hazing.
Washington, Jan. 31. Secretary
Ixng has addressed a letter to the
house naval committee relative to the
pending resolution touching hazing at
Annapolis. He says: "Both the de-
lartnient and the pupcrintendeut
would welcome any in
vestigation. It should be borne iu
mind, however, that such an invest 1
ngtion will necessarily tend very much
to demoralize the academy for the
time being, and probably for the rest
of the spring Term Interrupting, the
course of study. 1 ought to say fur
ther that no complaint has come to me
during the time I have beeu secretary
of the navy, so far as I now recall,
of any hazing at the academy.
"This to me is significant, because
parents and friends are always ex
tremely and properly sensitive ' in
ca-se of any hardship or wrong, and
had any uch case existed at the acad
emy I feel eonhd-ent that complaint
would have been made. It .is also
noticeable that since the introduction
of Mr. Sherman's resolution no such
complaint indeed no word at all with
reference to any practice of hain
at the academy has come to me. I
cannot help thinking that if there
were occasion for iuvestigatiion I
Kltould have received some suggestion
of this kind, especially after the gen
eral interest created by the West
IV)int investigation and after Mr.
Sherman's resolution had called pub
lic attention to the naval academy.
"I may be permitted to say also
that consideration should be given
tlM; general rule that an investigation
in not usually ordered unless the
foundation is laid for it by evidence on
iirstancci of wrong-doing, and it i
presumed that the committee would
require this. I suggest, further, that
before final action the committee au
thorize me to summon the superin
tendent to appear before it, and that
If need be a snb-coninjittee of the
committee visit Annapolis, where ev
ery facility.. will, of course, be open
to determine whether there is justi
ncation for a formal investigation.
"I have written the above, not with
a view to avert an investigation, if
congress shall deem it desirable. In
which case the department superin
lendent and all the officers will heart
ily co-operate in making it thorough
FATE OF THE SHIP SUBSIDV.
Declared To Be In the Kanda of Dzmo-
crata and Fopallsls.
Washington, Jan. 31. A conference
of Democrats and their associates of
the Populist and Silver Republican
faith will be held today as a result of
the declaration Tuesday by Frye that
he intended to pnsh the consideration
of the- ship subsidy bill to the ex
rulsioo of all other business, except
bv vote of the senate. This conference
will determine the fate of the bill. If
the opponents of the measure decide
to continue a stiff hgut and debate
the measure at great J length it' will
mean defeat at this session, with the
short time remaining to pass tbe ap
The conference also jWill lake Into
conslderalon the question whether the
minorly' will desire to take the respon
sibility of defeating a party measure
of the majority. Same of the opixnients
of the bill on the Democratic side feel
that if the Republicans are determined
to pass the bill the minority should
not go further than to state their ob
jections fully anl vote against it, and
to let the nepublicaus take the respon
sibility which is tleir's.
It also developed that no one wants
au extra session, and that one will
be avoided if there Is auy possible
way of doing so.

MINE WORKERS CLOSE.
Final Day l)votl to Making a Number
of Constitutional Change.
Indianapolis. Jan. 31. The natioual
convention of the United Mine Work
ers came to a close at p. ui. yester
day. The delegates to the joint con
ference with the operators to le held
in t.'uluiubus, 500 strong, have left for
that city by special train. Yesterday
was devoted to revising the constitu
tion, and several important changes
were made. The convention voted
down a motion to introduce the refer
endum system in the election of offi
cers. President Mitchell favored Hie
idea and announced that in his recom
mendations for next year he will out
line a plau of submitting elections to
a geueral vote.
It was decided to next year eu force
the rule forbidding unions whose dues
are not paid up to have delegates at
the convention. A motion to provide
that local unions shall not refuse to
recognize transfer cards, and that men
shall not be prohibited from working
on account of race, color or nation
ality, was defeated.
The work of absorbing the engin
eers, firemen, blacksmiths and other
auxiliary trades was completed by the
adoption of a resolution allowing mem
bers of these trades to be organized
Into separate unions. There was no
legislation in regard X the proxsed
defense fund. The amendment to
create such a fund ,was offered as
recommended iy the committee, but
was voted down.

of Queen Victoria. He will arrive in
London Saturday, aud Sunday will
deRsit a wreath on the casket con

duke's decision is interesting in view
of his message of congratulation to

AARON BURR'S MAGNETISM.
He Cosqsrred All Feminine Hearts
Witbost an Effort.
"From the time the beautiful and
brilliant Mme. Juinel had been a young
girl and when Aaron Burr was only
a captain In tbe American army she
had been more than once under the
spell of bis strange fascination," writes
William Perrine in The Ladies' nome
Journal. "Burr had introduced her to
the celebrated Margaret Moncrieff, bad
desperately flirted with her and bad
Implanted within her an admiration
which was still alive when he was
an aged social exile. 'She had written
of him in earlier days that he appeared
to her to be 'the perfection of man
hood. that his figure and form bad
been fashioned in the mold of the
graces and that he was as familiar
with the drawing room as with the
- 'In a word.' she said, 'he was a
combined model of Mars and Apollo.
His eye was of the deepest black and
sparkled with an incomprehensible
brilliancy when he smiled, but if en
raged its power was absolutely ter
rific. Into whatever female society
he chanced by the fortunes of war or
the vicissitudes of private life to be
cast, he conquered all hearts without
an effort, and until he became deeply
involved in the affairs of state and
te vexations incident to the political
arena I do not believe a female capa
ble of the gentle emotions of love ever
looked upon him without loving him.'
Wherever be went he was petted aud
caressed by her sex, and hundreds
vied with each other in a continuous
struggle to offer him some testimonial
of their adulation. Subsequently Mme.
Jumel was married to Burr, -who was
nearly SO and she nearly CO. The mar
riage was not a happy one, and the
two soon separated."
