The death of Albion W. Touree.
late consul at Bordeaux, does not find
Uncle Sam unprepared to fill the va
cancy thereby occasioned. Fourteen
specific applications for his place have
been filed by aspirants for consular
honors who had learned of his illness,
and Borne of them present strong testi
monials. It is believed that someone
already in the service will be promoted
to this place.
The following story of Admiral Dew
ey is told by one of the sailors who
returned on the Raleigh. Just before
the battle of Manila, when the order
was Riven to strip for action, the small
est powder Imv on the flagship dropped
his coat overboard, recovered his coat
and was promptly arrested fur diso
bedience. Admiral Dewey spoke kind
ly to the youngster, who broke down
and said tiiat the coat contained his
mother's picture, which he' had just
kissed, and he could not bear to see
it lost. iH-wey's eyes filled with tears;
he fairly embraced the boy and order
ed him to be released, saying: "Hoys
who love their mothers enough to risk
their lives for her picture can not be
kept in irons on this fleet."
Private Dalzell emerges from obscur

Very Good Advice.
Comptroller of the Currency William
Barret Ridgely recently delivered an
address before the National Bank Ca.-h-iers'
association of Massachusetts at
Boston, in which he warned bankers
against speculating and advi-d de
positors to dUcrimiuaie in favor of
banks run on conservative principles.
Mr. Ridgely's advice is good, but the
difficulty of the public following ii is
that ihey have no ure means of know
ing whether or not a bank is ruu on
conservative principles. That is oue
thing that bank examiners ought to
find out and post the people about. But
they don't. Comptroller Ridgely can
confer a great bon on the public by
making it the duty of the bank exam
iners to find out whether bank officials
specula::, aad whether a bank is run
ou conservative principles.
A large majority of banks are. doubt
less, so run. but the numerous recent
failures of national banks through the
unfaithfulness oi their officials, empli-
size the importance of making it the
duty of government examiners to examine.
Accidents for the Presidency.
The Lorain tOhlo) Times-Herald re
veals an Intimate knowledge of Leslie
M. Shaw's political methods in a two
column editorial discussion of his can
didacy for the presidency. The Lorain
paper says in part:
"It is reported that Shaw will retire
from the rabinet in the fall, and this is
extremely likely, inasmuch as such re
tirement would emphasize his protest
against the. methods of the administra
tion in the eyes of those whom the
present tariff schedules pamper rather
than protest. Then, too. Shaw is nat
urally anxious to get back in Iowa.
The railroads have not fared well dur
ing the administration of his succes
sor. Gov. Cummins, and have been
made to pay nearly a million dollars
more of taxes annually into the treas
ury than they had to pay when Shaw
was there to look after their interests.
While Shaw has been in Washington,
moreover, his crowd in Iowa has re
gained control of the machinery of the
party, and is hopeful, by means of ma
nipulation, to return lo jower at the
state election a year from next fall.
Shaw can be of no great use in the
directing of the woik. and if al! goes
well, he will be given an indorsement
for president in l&nx. or become suc
cessor to Senator Dolliver. If fortune
smiles, he may be senator and get the
indorsement, too." Shaw's present aim
is to secure the nomination for presi
dent in i;os. So far there is but one
avowed candidate against him Vice
The nomination of either would mean
a victory for the railroads. Shaw was
nominated for governor of Iowa at the
direction of Blythe and Hubbard, open
and avowed railroad representatives.
Fairbanks secured his nomination
through the influence of Kdward H.
Harrimau. The trusts are more likely
to back Shaw than Fairbanks. The lat
ter would do their bidding, no doubt,
but he is an icicle and wouldn't create
any enthusiasm. Shaw, on the other
hand, would make the campaign inter
esting. With such political accidents and
money cured misfits in public life as
Shaw and Fairbanks to be considered
in connection with the presidential
nomination, the members of the g. o. p.
will have little opportunity for choice.
Of course, both Taft and Root are be
ing groomed by the administration for
the presidential succession.

DAILY SHORT STORY
NEW CASE OF JEKYLL AND HYDE;
la my vein ruu the same blood as
the Earl of Etehwotb. Au ancestor
a cavalier and a stanch royalist came
to America in Cromwell's time, and
bis grandson was a noted Tory during
the Revolution. Some years ago I
visited London and sent my card to the
present earl, who invited me to visit
Etehwotb bouse, the family seat. We
arrived there in time for dinner and
spent a part of the evening examining
tbe bou-e and many heirlooms it con
tained. This nuisbed, we sat by the
great fireplace, built centuries ago. and
my bust told me stwiies and legends of
I went to my room with my bead full
of visions of different generations past
ing and repassing as iu a panorama,
'lbe bouse bad never been changed into
a modern abode, aud my only light was
a candle. While undressing I noticed
a jrtrait banging ou tbe wall whoae
white wig. high collared red -oat, with
large but ions, and ruffled shirt bosom
marked tbe original for tbe ierlod of
George m. I noticed him especially
for the benevolent expression of his
face, and since be loie a strong family
rcsemblaiK-e I did nt doubt that he
was one of the earl's and my own an
cestors. Placing the candle on a table beside
tbe bed - the candlestick, of heavy sil
ver, had lighted people to led Itm or
more years before- I put the extiu-
giiMier over it, stmt my eyes und'went
1 soon awoke with one of those iu-
nWrrihahle sensations, the only definite
thing alniut which is a certainty of
sottK' cause for wakefulness. 1 lighted
my candle and, lying back on my pil
low. found myself facing tbe picture
of the InMievoleut gentleman that bad
attracted my attention.
I started up in astoirlslinieut. Through
this man who bad lived from one to
two hundred years ago there seemed to
le looking from the background the
Iortralt of one in the costume of either
Charles II. or James II. At any rate
he wore the curls and lace collar of
that period. What a face! Never have
I seen such malevolence combined with
such despair. I thought of Stevenson's
"Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr.
lTide." the good and the bad In one
body. There were the features of be
nevolence aud malevolence, the one
looking through the other, though the
former seemed to have mastered the
latter. 1 could not bear the thought of
remaining under the gaze of that horrl
ble face. I dared not put out the can
die, for I dreaded the darkness more
than the light; so, getting out of bed. I
placed tbe caudle on a dresser w here It
would not shine so fully ou the picture.
While returning to my bed I noticed
that the features of the evil face were
gradually giving place to the good face.
and before 1 lay down the good bad
completely annihilated the evil.
An hour pusm-d. during which I occa
sionally cast furtive glances at the por
trait, dreading tbe return of the fiend
face. But there was no return, aud at
last I fell asleep. I awoke again, bow
ever. In a few hours. The candle was
flickering in tbe socket. Being thirsty
I got up to get a drink of water before
the caudle should go out. Turning to
go back to led, I cast a glance at the
IMjrtrait. There again was tbe face I
I must have started and caused a dis
turbance of the air sufficient to extin
guish the flickering caudle. At any
rate It flared ami went out, aud I dash
ed for the led. climbed Into it and bu
rled my head under the clothes, my
heart beating like a triphammer. An
other hour of wakefulness, then slum
ber relieved me of tbe dreadful feeing
that that evil face was looking at me.
In the morning my chamber door was
thrown oen, ami my host entered to
announce that breakfast was waiting,
and we had scarcely time to eat it and
reach our train to Iondou. My first
thought was of the portrait. I looked
at it. and there, as 1 bad seen tbe night
iK'fore. were the two faces in one.
"Explain that." I said, pointing.
The earl looked at It, surprised.
"I leg a thousand pardons," be said,
"for putting you In a room with tbat
picture. When last here I gave an
order for Its removal, but I see the
or ler has not Nen obeyed. Did it
trouble you in the night V
"1 rouble me? I should say It did."
''ome, gt your clothes on. and at
breakfast I II te you about it"
This i tbe story of the picture:
When the Duke of Monmouth,
diaries If. 'a natural son, returned
from the Netherlands to dispute tbe
throne with Jnnii II. the Earl of Etch
wot Ii was deep In the plot. His am
bition was fired at the prospect of hav
ing U-eii one of tbe principal adherents
of a king in adversity, and be staked
all on tb. result. When Monmouth waa
deferred at I.edgeinoor and executed
the earl was one of tbove whom Jef
fries tried and condemned. The fail
ure of the earl's plans and the result
embittered him and made a devil of
him. The night lefore bit eie.-ut.ion
an artist visited him in prison and,
struck by his expression, hurried to hia
studio to put it on canvas. Tbe picture
eventually panned Into the Etchwoth
family, but was kept In a garret.
Tbree q Barters of a century later, when
a canvas was wanted for a portrait for
the Incumbent of tbe title at that
lime- the flower of them all tbe one
that had Neu nsed In tbe case of the
condemned earl was brought from the
garret aod turned to account. Indeed,
tlie dtrt had obeenred the painting, aod
the artist did not know of Its existence,
ao be painted over it. At the end of
another three-quarters of a century
tbe picture was cleaned, with tbe re
sult of bringing out the two faces.

DR. A. VV. CHASE'S
If the person subject to attack of diz

In his celebrated Nerve Pill, a medicine
that brings back the glow of health and
strength by its power to furnish just
what the illy fed. half starved nervous
