Governor Doughts of Massachusetts
has requested his friends to refrain
from mentioning his name in connec
tion with the presidency. Douglas
says, he is for Bryan and wants his
friends to be for Bryan.
Until wood pulp and printing paper
are put on the free list newspapers in

the president's message with the fa

Hungarian does not understand Eng

Senator Tillman should feel vindi
eated. In an address four years ago
he said that; intermarriage between
whites and blacks as a solution of the
race problem would be advanced as
a result of northern fanaticism. Now
we have the spectacle of whites and
blacks at a dinner in New York where
this method was suggested and agreed
to by the men and women of both
races. True, most of tne whites are
settlement workers and enthusiasts
who dream of the fatherhood of God
and the brotherhood of man. but their
extreme ideas are - abhorrent to

Congressman Mann, is made the in
quisitor in chief to put the publishers
on the defensive and obscure the real,
the paramount arguments for the wood
pulp and paper proposition.
"But whom will all these tricks de
ceive? Do the individual representa
tives imagine that their constituents
will be terrified by the names of Can
non, Payne and Dalzell and accept as
sufficient the pitiable plea that the
house could do nothing against the
veto of that triumvirate? The individ

One of the funniest things- that ever
occurred in congress was over a letter
which Senator Carter of -Montana re
ceived the other day. After it had
passed through the hands of several
of the senators, they carried it over
to Cullom, who smiled broadly and
gave it to Hopkins. The letter is as
follows: "Versailles, 111.. April C
Dear Senator Carter: As I do not re

and ask them for me to vote for the
postal savings bank and the Crum

letter was withheld.
- Again, the Hearst Attitude.
" William : Randolph Hearst, through
all of his various newspapers, is fight
ing the proposition of a reduction of
the'tariff on print paper. Here is an
other illustration of the peculiar meth
orts. that operate' to control the action
of Mr. Hearst. He has a very favora
ble contract with -the paper trust, ex
tending for some years in the future.
Consequently he writes, or directs the
writing of editorials, encouraging the
republican party to "stand pat" on the
tariff. . " "
Mr. Dalzell, one of the triumvirate
in the firm of Cannon, Payne & Dal
zell, reads these editorials in the
house to encourage his fellow conspir
ntors in their course. Thereupon all
the people who are profiting by the
tariff ring pat themselves and each
oiher on the back, smile loftily, and
exclaim, "Now, what do you think of
that?" The truth of it is that Hearst
ia. always for Hearst. Anything that
stands in the way of his immediate
and personal profit he opposes. Any
thing that will help him as an indi
vidua, he is for. He is willing to
enter into any combination, scheme,
game, or side deal that will insure to
his "advantage." '- ----.

the same that he has pursued politi

We Will Pay
If Kodol fails to do- what -we cla!mN for it, it will cost
you nothing. If it digests all foods, at once and com
pletely, think what it means to you. If it doesn't, we
will gladly pay. , ;

Undigested food decays and breeds germs. The
germs create poisons, and the food duets of the
bowels suck those jioisons into the blood. That
leads to blood impurity, and all its results. Often
to kidney trouble. - v-

the body is robbed of Its nourishment. In' these
ways scores of serioua troubled are due solely to

The custom of following a sneeze, with

It is next to impossible to say when
it actually began. According toStrada,
the custom origiuated among the As
syrians," who. ' through an opinion of
the danger that attended it, after the
actof sneezing' made a short prayer
to the gods. The Romans after sneez
!ns cried out, "Jupiter, help me!" The
custom is mentioned by Homer, the
early Jewish writers ami others and Is
found among many savage tribes.

Kodol, for a little time, do its work for it.
Tonics and stimulants only spur the stomach to
action. It is like whipping a tired horse.
The food must, be digested., for you must have
food. And you must stop the irritation. Kodol
digests all food, immediately and completely. The
result is relief and rest. You will be astonished
to see how quickly the stomach recovers then.
Kodol is not like anything else. Most digesters
depend almost solely on pepsin, and pepsin digests
only albumen. v
Starch requires something else: fat something
lse. A perfect digester must digest every food.
And euc'i a digester requires the liquid form.
So Kodol is liquid, like the digestive juices. For
this reason Its action is instant.. Its effect even
begins In the mouth, by starting the flow of saliv

You won't need Kodol long, unless the trouble
is chronic. For most weak stomachs recover very
quickly with rest, .-'. -J - r .

It was not often that Paul attended
soclai affairs now, urging the office as
an excuse, though he had not found It
difficult to leave the dock even on sail
ing nights when he was to act as es
cort to Kate Pyfrom. He and his fa
ther owned the- steamer Itoltert -.
which made semi weekly trips to the
mainland. Iu winter this was about
the only means of communication, for
the heavy gales made the passage of
the pleasure sloops almost impossible,
and the stancher boats were engaged
on the fishing banks. The Hotert O.
carried the catch across the strait to
the city, and it was this tratlh. which
made a. regular communication wl
the mainland possible.
The sailings were scheduled for C
o'clock, but if the tishlug boats were
late coming in the steamer would be
held until .their arrival. nd frequently
it was long after midnight before tne
start was made.
This furnished Paul with the excuse
for remaining away from merrymak

the fishenneu and merchants he heard
little of what -was-going-on. though
Kate's increasing fondness for Trent
was gossip even among tbeyseafarers.
So completely k had he Isolated him

surprised when one sailing day George
