Judge O. P. Thompson on the Su

I'elow is an interview with Hon. O.

paign that is sure to be read gener
ally with the keenest interest, and
which cannot fail lit be highly stimu
lating and encouraging to friends of
Hon. G. ('. Scott, the democratic can
didate for supreme judge.
Judge Thompson is the able and
fearless jurist who has been made fa
mous by his decision sustaining the
contention of the Chicago Federation
of Teachers, that the capital stock of
Chicago corporations should be as
sessed for what it was worth.
In his interview on the supreme
judicial campaign, Judge Thompson
"It is more than probable that Hon.
G. C. Scott will be elected to the su
preme bench in the Fourth district at
the June election. His recognized
ability, unquestioned integrity and
well known popularity give hope and
encouragement to his friends
throughout the whole district.
"He has nothing to explain away
or apologize for, either as to the rea
Kon.s why the district was changed or
as to the way in which he secured his

be a deserved recognition of those
qualities we all admire in public offi

The Last "War Coternor."
There are no more "war governors,"
so-called because they were govern
ors of states during the civil war.
Not one of these officials is in the
ranks of the living since Alexander
Ilamsey died at St. Paul, Minn., a few
days ago.. He was a former secretary
of war. a former United States sena
tor and the first governor of Minne
sota. Upon these "war governors"
(ptnded the measure and character
of the response to the president's call
for troops, and those governors in
north"Tii states when the hard fight
ing of the civil war was under way

The war governor of Illinois was
Richard Yates, afterwards United
States senator, the father of the pres
ent governor; of Iowa Samuel J.
Kirkwood, who became, senator and
then a member of Garfield's cabinet;
of Indiana, Oliver 1. Morton, subse

candidate for the presidential nomi
nation; of Ohio, William Denison. af

Alexander itanisfv, the last to pass
away was t5u governor of one of the
least of the states in population, and
its importance came chiefly from the
fact that it was at the beginning of
161 the most westerly of the states
of the country with the. exception of
those on the Pacific. It furnished to
the union army 25.000 soldiers, though
its population iu 1SGI was only 175,000
and on that record the fame of Gov.
Ilamsey chiefly depends. Illinois with
a population in 1S01 of about 1,750,
000. , furnished 22C3H2, as the. state
records show or according to the
United States record 2S5.147 giving
this state the proud distinction of

Politeness In Business.
A millionaire banker of New York,
who has just died, said on one occa
sion, when he was asked what he con
sidered the essentials of success--, that
among them was politeness. "Too of
ten." he remarked, "the man who
wears a shabby coat is subjected to
discourtesy, but 1 have observed that
many a tattered garment- hides a
package of bonds, and that gorgeous
clothing does not always cover a mil
lionaire. A grain of politeness saves
a ton of correction. No institution is
too important to ignore the laws of
courtesy. If I could speak 20 lan
guages I would preach politeness in
Far too many fail to realize the im
mense importance of politeness as a
business asset, says the . Italtimore
American. Yet it has ln-en known to
surpass the 520 er cent concerns in
its return of dividends, and htnest.
lasting dividends at that . A man
may be incorruptly just,; thoroughly
honest. self-sacriticing and public
spirited, and render these sterling
qualities nothing in the eyes of others
if he is rude or brusque in his inter
course with his fellows. Virtu? is, in
a wav. an abstract thiuir which ad
dresses itself to a man's consideration
through hi.-, reason; politeness is a
concrete quality which addresses it
self to a man's reason through his
feelings, and it does not require an
extensive study of human nature to
learn that in this; inqierfect world

CATARRH SERIOUS DISEASE.

Hyomei should be used when any of
the following symptoms are present.
It cures by the simple and natural
method of breathing healing and

sages and lungs. These symptoms
show the presence of catarrhal germs
in the mucous membrane of the nose,
throat, bronchial tubes and the tis

Offensive breath, dryness of the
nose, pain across the eyes, pain in
back of the head, pain in front of the
head, tendency to take cold, burning
pain in the throat, hawking to clear
the throat, pain in the chest, a cough,
stitch in side, losing of flesh, variable
appetite, low spirited at times, raising

low matter, difficulty in breathing,
frequent sneezing, huskiness of voice,
discharge from the nose, stoppage of
the nose at night, aching of the body,
droppings in the throat, mouth open
while sleeping, tickling back of the

nose, dryness of the throat in the
morning, loss of strength, spasms of
coughing, cough short and hacking,
cough worse nights and mornings,
loss in vital force, a feeling of tight
ness across the upper part of the
To breathe' through . a nose and
throat filled with catarrhal germs
means that the , air going into the
lungs is filled with catarrhal poison.

A 8ore Thins;
It is said that nothing is sure ex
cept death and taxes, but that is not
altogether true. Dr. King's New Dis
covery for Consumption is a sure cure
for all lung and throat troubles.
Thousands can testify to that. Mrs.
C. P.. Van Metre, of Shepherdtown, WT.
Va., says: "I had a severe case of
bronchitis and for a year tried every
thing I heard of, but got no relief.
One bottle of Dr. King's New Discov
ery then cured me absolutely." It's
infallible for croup, whooping cough,
grip, pneumonia and consumption.
Try it; It's guaranteed by Hartz &
Ullemeyer, druggists. Trial bottles
free. Regular size, 50 cents and $1.
If there is one time more than an
other that a woman looks like a real
angel, it is after completing a course
of Rocky Mountain Tea. Brings back
that girlish beauty. T. II. Thomas

"Can't you go any faster?" the girl
asked of me.
"I'm driving now at double the pace

1 had no sooner spoken than I saw a
policeman making a dive for the mid

turned aside quickly and passed him.
He ran after me, brandishing his club
and putting his hand ominously to his
hip, but my sympathies were absorbed

Just as they were lost to sight the cab

old gentleman got out. The police
man's face was. very red.
"Oi'll teach ye to defy the law!" he
"There's no law against helping elop
