Perhaps Mr. Burton or Kansas ex

seat on a technicality.
It appears that William E. Chandler
keeps a diary. Always beware of a
man who does that.

It. P. Peters, who soon wiW be 92
years old, is a park policeman in Sioux
City, Iowa. Recently he visited two
daughters in Philadelphia, stopping in
Chester county, Pennsylvania, where
he was born. Acoording to this vet
teran officer, "Clood habits, clear con
scitnee and hard work" are the three
prerequisites to long life.
Mrs. Chandler, wife of the New
Hampshire stateman, has constituted
herself something of a clipping agency
for the purpose of informing the pres
ident with respect to public opinion
on the controversy- that raged in Wash
ington last week. The other day she
sent the president, with her card, a
clipping criticising his attitude toward
Democrats down in the Indian Terri
tory are already holding enthusiastic
rallies, discussing "the constitution of
the new state." "how to keep up the
organization." and other questions of
interest in a live political party. Not
having had a chance to mix much in
politics since they went to the Terri
tory, they are likely to take to it with
keen relish when" they get a govern
ment in which politics count.
The administration has again post
poned the trial of Congressman Ringer
Hermann of Oregon, and this time it
"is not to be later than the first week
in June." There is a partisan reason
apparently for puKing off the evil day
to that date, for the Oregon election
for congressmen takes place tfie first
week in June, when it is hoped the
voters will forget tfhey have no mem
ber of their delegation in congress free
from the law's clutches.
Senator Thoaias C. Plaw is both un
popular in New York and so decrepit
that be is unable to attend to business
as a senator. "When ought a politi
cian to retire?" a newspaper corre
spondent asked Mr. Piatt. "A politi
cian," retorted the aged New York
"boss," "ought to retire when he gets
d n good and ready. I presume you
put the question because you think I
ought to retire from the senate? Well,
I will when I get ready."
Couldn't Re nought.
Attorney Monett began the tight
against the Standard Oil some year;
ago in Ohio. It is reported that the
octopus offered him $400,000 to quit.
but he refused. Then it defeated him
for renomination, but Monett had his
fighting clothes on and refused to grve
in. Often worsted, subject to delays,
thrown out of courts on various pre
texts, Monett kept bnsy, and it looks
now as if he had the villains on the
hip. It was remarked in the investi
gation in Chicago that as soon as the
commissioners allowed the witnesses
to be cross-questioned by the trusts
the Standard Oil brought in a multi
tude of attorneys from all over the
A witness from Kansas would be
cross-questioned by a Kansas attorney,
familiar with all the laws, regulations
and conditions of the trade in that
state. A witness from Missouri would,
in like manner, be questioned by a Mis
souri attorney. These lawyers were
conresedlj there for that purpose.
From their acts, they had evidently
been r'aiTed to assist the Standard
Oil in its legal fight, and they attempt
ed, not to ascertain the truth of the
charges, but to rescue their clients
from the penalties of exposure.
; Even now the Standard Oil has the
unblushing - effrontery to oppose ' the
passage of the free alcohol bill in the
senate, solely because it will affect the
consumption of gasoline, one of the
products. Senator Aldrich, whose child
married Into the Rockefeller family,
and who owes his position to the. out
rageous manipulation of the individ
ual voters of Rhode Island, has taken
up the fight for the Standard Oil and
is working every scheme possible to
defeat the free alcohol measure.
The public conscience should be arous
ed and the people should realize that
if the Standard Oil is victorious in the
present fight, it will be 10 times more
despotic, more arbitrary and more cor
rupt than it is now, and heaven knows
it is bad enough now. Its cup of vil
lainy is full to the brim, and it ought
to be exposed and crushed.
About Judge Farmer.
The election for supreme court
judges will be held on Monday, June
4, but this county is not concerned,
in the district south or judicial dis
trict the democrats have nominated
Judge William M. Farmer, of Vanda
Iki. The republicans are making no
contest, but it appears that the social
ists have placed a candidate in the
field and expect to support him at the
polls. Their nominee is a miner from
Glenn Carbon named Harth. He is
not supposed to know anything about
law and would be unable to qualify if
elected, but that made no difference to
the forces who nominated him.
On the other hand. Judge Farmer
has served on the circuit bench with
honor and credit and is a man of great
judicial and intellectual endowment.
He is a man of stainless reputation
and is fully equipped to serve in any
court in the land.
Men of all parties should make it a
point to register their approval of this
nomination at the election on June 4.
The Press Bureau.
There seems no longer doubt of the
fact that Standard Oil has hired a
"press agent," though what in the
world he can tell, a confiding public
that will make that octopus look less
terrible will hardly impose on the most
ignorant. Xow, if the denatured alco
hol bill passes, in spite of the opprwi
tion of the Rockefellers, the "press
agent" will find a fine field open for
his imagination to have full play. The
Quincy Herald says he can describe
the danger of using alcohol in lamps
and moters and picture the lingering
death of its victims and show that if
Rockefeller oil and naptha had been
used all this suffering would have been

FALLING HAIR STOPPED.
Baldness Cured by Destroying the Par
asitic Germ That Causes It.
Baldness follows falling hair, falling
hair follows dandruff; and dandruff is
the result of a germ digging its way
into the scalp to the root of the hair
where it saps the vitality of the hair,
To destroy that germ is to prevent as
well as cure dandruff, falling hair, and.

preparation known to do that, New

SHE SAVED THE BOWERIE.
While spending a summer on Great
South buy, which lies between Long
Island and Tire island, I hired an old
likberuiau to take me out in his boat.
He was a queer character and told
some stories about the early history
of Long island that interested me. He
bad lived in the same location all bis
life, and his father, grandfather and
great-grandfuther before bini.
Day after day he sat in the stern
with one brown hand on the tiller, the
other on the main sheet, reeling off
yams ns his little sloop reeled off
knots. This Is one of them:
'There was a time when piratiu was
a much more respectable trade than
it is now, and right here the pirates
used to came in through the inlets and '
bury their plunder. They bought a .
lot o' provisions and such things as
they needed, mid as they was good '

in them days was very glad to trade
with Vm that Is. when they wasn't
bent on murder and robbery. Ona of
our family who knowed how-to write
writ down u good many things in a
blank book, and there was a lot in it
about the pirates. That's bow I g;t
what I'm goin to tell yon. j
"One o the farmers, nn ld Dutch

called it, about n mile from the houxej

remember her name, except the first
name was Katrina come out here
from New York to visit her uncle's
family. Rein town bred, she was a
leetle too good for the folks about here;
in fact, my ancestor, the writer, de
scribes her as a high stepper. She
must 'a' been one o them Vans that
has since considered theirselves the big
toads In the New York puddle. Any
way. Katrina. though ber uncle tried
hard to give her a good time, turned up
her piirly nose at the farmer people.
I don't exactly know why, seein' that

which ber people did.

she was too high and mighty for the
simple folk about here and he'd send
her home the next day.

He must 'a leen the eap'n. Then the
pirates tole the tiddlers to piny, and
coin' up to the women, each cutthroat
chose a pardner and swung her off into
the dance. The cap'n he spied Katrina
settln dignified and haughty, and
when he seen her so the story goes-
he made a step aft and put bis hand
up to his fore'ead like they does in the
theater and gasps. Katrina see the
cap'n and set bolt upright as though
ho warn't nothin to her. Then he
walks up to ber, soft o crlngln' like,
and when be gits where she was he
sweeps the floor with his hat and says
somep'n' to her so low that nobody
couldn't hear It, and she says some
p'n' to him, and be snyn somep'n' more
to ber, and they kept it up awhile; then
she gits up, and he leads her out to

Jakes, which they was, only they made
sneerln' remarks about Katrina, sayln'
that now she'd got a pirate they hoped
she was satisfied. They wondered
what the two had been talkln' about.
but Katrina didn't let on. She jist
walked through the dunce as poker
like as ever, and the cap'n Avas ns
criugin before her as if she'd been the
queen of England. She didn't seem to
fear him, and she didn't say nothin to
him. She Jist danced as if she was
walkln around with a yaller dog. .
"There was jist one dance. Then the
cap'n give a signal to leave. The men
looked kind o' hard at him and wasn't
goin to go. The cap'n walks up to one
on 'em and was bringln his cutlass
down on him when the feller dug out,
and the rest follered. The cap'n he
went last, and before he did he turned
and give Katrina one look. My scrib
blin' ancestor says it was like the look
a man might give bis sweetheart Jist
before he was goin' to be swijng off., ...
"And that was the next thing that
happened to the cap'n. A man-o'-war
was watchin' for him outside and
scooped the whole gang. It turned out
that be bad been a New York beau, a
lover of Katrlna's she'd refused, and
he'd concluded to live down the blow
