Facto of Safety
'. The human, body is a , wonderful machine, provided with,
muscular, nervous and mental .energy far in excess of normal
needs. In health, the'' organs and, tissues can do ..double their
usual amount of work 'without strain-or friction, because they
have stored; energy to meet the extra demand. "
When you feel "all tuckered out," these factors of safety are
nearly exhausted and you need to resort to

Indigestion, ilious attacks, constipation, loss of sleep, ner

at his own expense. He was acting
Hamlet in Bristol. - It was the actor's
ruio to take a bowl of gruel in the
course of the evening, and his land
lady sent over .the usual refreshment
from the lodgings in Queen square.
She' happened to have a "new" serv
ant girl, who was explicitly directed
to get to the stage-door by the en
trance from Bank street and then car
ry the gruel itito the greenroom. She
arrived at a moment when Mr.-Melville
was ."on." Being unused to the
ways of the theater, she asked a man
at the wings where Mr. Melville was.
"There," said the super, pointing to
the stage. T -

CLOSE OF CAMPAIGN SEES DEMO
CRATIC HOPES IN ASCENDENCY
(Special Washington Correspondence of
This has been a curious camp.ni.rn in
many ways. The managers of both
parties hnve watched each other wari
ly and have day by day wondered
what unsuspected attack, might be
made next day or next wct-k. Now we:
confront Ihe Ht;se of the campaign. - I j
will have to concede to the versatile!
and active Mr. Hearst the credit of
having done a few things that made
both parties sit up tind t:i!:e notice.
But the Ilciir.-t endeavors were annoy
ing equally to each of the ld parties.
If ho attacked Governor Haskell, who
has since sued far !?0O.O(;0 damages,
he attacked Senator Foraker, who
thereupon retired from politics, and
Mr. du Pont of the powder trust, who
promptly withdrew from the finance i
committee of, the Republican national
committee. But thus far only Hearst
has Infused that particular sort of
"ginger" into 'the campaign. True,
President Roosevelt en mo to his-.aid,
and a spectacle was presented of
Roosevelt and Hearst as the chief mud
sllngers of the campaign.
But today that campaign Is practi
cally ended. From the Democratic na
tional headquarters at Chicago most of
the chiefs have gone to their homes tc
close the. last week of agitation by
their own personal effort in the locali
ties where they are best known.
, Outlook In Some States.
From the Pacific coast I have receiv
ed repeated reports from George Fred;
Williams, who has traveled through j
California. Oregon and -Washington.-He.
insists that the outloo'c for Demo-j
cratic success in those states Is most
encouraging. He refers to a poll taken'
of one precinct in Spokane, Wat-h.,!
which he reiorts in this fashion: "l:i
this precinct 1M1 votes were cast in;
1901. In that year Parker got twelve.'
In 1000 Bryan got twenty-three votes.
The poll taken this year shows eighty-
one for Bryan.".. Tills is. of course,
only a straw. But when added to tho'
report which comes from the Santa
Fe car shops in Topeka, Kan., that
where there nsed to be 2.000 ..votes
among the workers for the Republican
party aiid "00 for the Demfwratie the
figures are this year reversed, it sug
gests a certain change In sentiment.
When to such instances as these we '
add the fact that from Colorado comes
the reiMirt that the great mining center!
of Cripple Creek. 'which in 1004 went
strongly against the Democratic ticket,!
is this year gohf-i t give a heavy plu
rality for Bryan and Kern we begin to
see that the trend of sentiment among
the working people is toward the De
mocracy, And, continuing, when from
Indiana conies the news that the work
ing people of that state "are almost a
unit in behalf of the Democratic can
didates and so capable and nonpartisan
a newspaper correspondent as Walter
Wellnian declares in the Republican
paper which employs him that Indiana
and Ohio are absolutely lost to the Re
publican party we of the Democracy
believe that the hour of our victory is
close at hand.
These are the states in which the
fight is being waged and in which the
issxie must le regarded as doubtful,
though personally I believe that In sev
eral of them Democratic success is
assured: New York. New Jersey, Con
necticut, Ohio. Indiana, Illinois. Ne
braska and Kansas are, this year as
safe for the Democratic ticket ns
Texas. They are safe because their
people have come to know Mr. Bryan
better and believe above all things in
I his demand for the guaranty of bank
deposits. But Ohio must be fought
'for and is being fought for. The De
mocracy has there a coherent 'and a
harmonious organization. The Cincin
nati Enquirer, which it had been fear
ed would be hostile to the Democratic
cause, has been doing admirable work
in behalf of the nafional ticket. The
Republicans In the state are torn with
the dissensions between Taft and For
aker and the famous boss,' George B.
Cox." There never has been ' a more
bitter, factioua! fight than-is now in
progress In that" pivotal state.- And
the Democrats?, having a divided ene
my, will reap the fruits of victory. In
Indiana the struuuest politician of, tho
Acrobats Appearing at
state. Vice President Fairbanks, was
treated i:i t!:c campaign for nomina
tion' with the grossest discourtesy. I
am a mere observer of Hliiical events,
not in any sense a politician, but I
would ask any reader of this article
whether he lias seen in Cue newspaper
reports of this campaign any indica
tion' of Vice President Fairbanks' ac
tivity In behalf of the heir apparent?
If Fairbanks has been on the stump
the newspapers have not mentioned
the fact. And if Foraker has been on
the stump since the treaclrcroiw letter
of Taft concerning him was published
nobody knows of that fact. With Fair
banks in Indiana and Foraker in Ohio
hud La Fcllette in Wisconsin quietly
in opposition to the ticket of their own
party, what chance, has that party
ticket to win?
Cases of Coercion.
Toward the c! se of the campaign
the Republicans are playing (he old
game of coercion. At the Democratic
national headquarters there are letters
and affidavits on file showing the des
Mrate expedients to which the opposi
tion Is resorting in the hope of forcing
roters to do its will. We have, for ex
ample, an affidavit from a traveling
man who knows of what he is speak
ing and who testifies that he was i:i-'
etructed to send orders to his house '
Which were to le filled if Taft was
elected and a duplicate order in which
the prices were to be reduced If Bryan '
was elected. The understanding was
that the duplicate order was to be -used
to affect public sentiment and
not to be considered by the house. We
are in possession of Information which
shows that a certain great bank in
Chicago after bringing a man clear
from Idaho to consider a propsitlon
for placing a certain number of licndsj
Informed him that Itecausc of fear of
Bryan's election they would not even !
discuss the matter. The bonds were to1
be based upon a water power and elec I
trie power proposition. What in thej
world the election of Bryan could havei
to do with the success of such a busi-j
ness enterprise in a town of the far
northwest is hard to determine. Yet it
appears t lint the Republicans pretend
to think that there Is some sort of
sinister influence that the president
might exert over a municipal monop
oly'." Whether they have as yet ap
pealed to telephone companies and
street car companies for funds I do
not know. But there has come to the
national committee headquarters a let
ter which to a great extent justified
the complaint of the man from Idaho
that he was prevented from' placing
his bonds of an electrje light and pow
er company lecause or apprehension
that Bryan might be elected. This let
ter came from Tennessee. It was adr
dressed to the head of nn electric pow
er company, pleading for a contribu
tion to the Republican campaign fund
on the ground that everybody who
was Interested in furnishing powei
from a central station or furnishing
light or heat should contribute toward
the election of Taft and Sherman bo
cause', their election was vital to the
success of that business. The letter,
which I have in my possession, is writ
ten on the letter head of the Republican :
national committee and signed by n'
subofficer of that committee. It is!
clearly official. The point which might
be raised about It fs this:
What has the president of the United
States or the vice president to do with i
the electric lighting, traction or power
companies of any city? Vhy should
those companies be asked to contribute
to a campaign fund on the plea that
their interests' are vitally involved?!
In Chicago there has been a long fight.
for .the municipal control of electric
traction and power companies. Why
should the right of a city to control
these. couipauies be complicated by
any sort of .federal interference? And
if there is to be no federal interfer
ence why should the , Republican na
tional committee iu an official docu
ment soliciting funds declare that the
interests of electric, companies operat
ing from a ceutral .station are "titally
bound un in the election of Taft and
Sherman? Of course Taft's brother' Ia
