The new Massachusetts election law
aeema to hare been framed for the ex
press purpose of of being evaded and
laughed at. Most of its principal pro
visions are imbecile, says the St. Louis
Republic, commenting upon it, the pro
vision that no candidates can spend any
money to promote his own election, ex
cept through a political committee, and
the provision which mikea any three or
more persons, without regard to stand
ing, morality, or anything else, a politi
cal committee' seem to have been framed
expressly for "the boys." The clause
providing that no money shall be spent
"except for personal expenses" is an ab
surdity, for what cannot a candidate
itemize under so broad a beading? The

and defeated at every turn as no doubt

The first warm day of spring will see
those who have wintered in the city pack
their ponderous organs on their backs and
make for the provinces. They scatter all
over the country, going as far west as
Denver and all through the Xew England
states. They work their way, as a rule,
tramping oftentimes from town to town
lugging their fifty pound instruments
through the hot, dusty country for a score
of miles to make probably a few dollars,
and then on to the next. The monkey
long since made his exit from the cities,
and it is only rarely that they are now seen
ft the small towns. A man in Brooklyn
made a fortune in raising and training
them, and he received often as much as
fifty dollars for a well trained monkey.

Safe, Sure and Speedy.
No external remedy ever yet devised
has so fully and unquestionably met
these three prime conditions so success
fully as Allcock's Porous Plasters. They
are safe because they contain no dele

upon scientific principles of medicine.
They are sure because nothing goes into
them except ingredients which are ex
actly adapted to the purposes for which
the plaster is required. They are speedy
in their action because tbeir medicinal
qualities go right to tbeir work of re
lieving pain and restoring the natural
and healthy performance of the func
tions of mupclee, nerves and skin. Do
not be deceived by misrepresentations.
