Dear Sir: Replying to yours of the
23rd inst. in regard to Judge John f.
Altgeld's enlistment, would say that he
was a member of Company C, One Hun
dred and Sixty-third regiment Ohio Vol
unteer infantry. Although one of the
Touneeet soldiers in the company, he
was one of the very beet. Quiet and un
assuming, he was always ready to per
form any duty assigned him.
Very truly yours.

A large clothing manufacturer of Ro
chester. N. Y., says that the labor cost of
clothing is onethird of the cost of cloth-,
ing. The New York World shows that
the duty on manufactured clothing is
equivalent to about 75 per cent. Now.
according to the republican platform, the
duty on clothing ought to be simply the
difference between the labor cost in Eng
land and in America. From the protec
tive tariff league reports the cost of Eng
lish labor is about half of the cost of
American labor, so the difference in cost
would be about 15 per cent, yet the Mc
Kinley bill Imposes a duty of 75 per cent,
or five times as much as the republican
platform declares is nece' ssary.
Carthage Republican: Truman
Plantz. the democratic nominee for con
gress, is a young man of excellent at
tainments and promise. Perhaps the
best and most substantial ground of
promise in tr's case is that he is self
made. Fortune did not mike an easy
pathway for him. Boy and man he has
been a worker at railroad car brakes,
at freight hustling, train conductor any
honorable employment for his bread and
butter while he studied to improve his
mind on off days and play hours. Boys
who do that sort of thing are pretty cer
tain to achieve distinction later on. Mr.
Plantz is thoroughly posted on the econ
omic topics which are in issue and he is
able to proclaim his views logically and
forcibly from any stump or platform. If
the voters of the Eleventh district are
logical and consistent in their demands
for the correction of the many and grow
ing evils in our national legislation, they
will vote for Mr. Plantz and elect him.

The democratic national committee has
issued an address prompted by the re
turns from the September elections in
three states. They say:
"The democratic national committee
congratulates the country on the result of
the recent state elections in Maine, Ver
mont and Arkansas. In Arkansas the
combined opposition fell short by oyer
thirty thousand of the vote of the democ
racy elone. This brought dismay to com
binations in the south and their manipu
lators in the north. In Maine and Ver
mont the contest was conducted distinctly
on national issues. The republican man
agers in their ttpeal . summoned to their
aid all the potent resources of their na
tional organization, with its exbaustlees
treasury nod exbaustless equipment of or
ators. Ttie campaign of our adversaries
for a triumphant teBt vote in these states
so carefully planned and so forcefully
executed, has ended in conspicuous dis
aster. Our friends everywhere are en
titled to take fresh courage from the results."

St Louia Republic.
Mr. Blaine's answer to the indignities
and insults luQicted on him by the Har
rison office holders is an unvoted yote.
His failure to register in the Maine elec
tion is the only reply he has made to all
that was said and done in forcing him
out of the cabinet and driving him be
fore the Minneapolis convention at a
time when it was too late for the rank
arid fi e of the party to express itself;
when the convention was already packed
and in the hands of Mr. Harrison's sub
Mr. Blaine's course thus far during
the campaign has shown all the dignity
possible for him in the position of ex
treme humiliation into which he was
forced. He does not mean to leave the
republican party, but as long as it is con -trolled
by the Harrison faction he can do
nothing except to leave them to their own
deyices. He can reason logically that.
bad Harrison wished his help, or re
garded him in anv other light than that
of a rival to be degraded, he would never
have forced him out of the cabinet to
make room for Foreign Agent Foster.
After having done this, after having
used his power over his subordinates to
compel them to abandon Blaine and de
grade him in the party. Harrison might
like well enough to have Blaine "pla
cated" until after November, but it is al
together likely that in Noyember as now
Blaine will reply with an unvoted yote.
Catarrh Cant be Cared
with local applications, as they cannot
reach the teat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you have to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on the blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of the best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined with the best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. The perfect combina
tion of the two ingredients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Send for testimonials free.

Things Worth Remembering.
When you feel a kind of goneness about
the stomach it is a sign thtt your food
does not tit well, an 1 that you are about
to have a fit of indigestion.
When you begin to feel nervous and
are unable to sit still comforably; when
your clothes suddenly seem to lose their
fit and become too tight in places, the fit
of indigestion is surely upon you.
When this fit of indigestion is repeated
from day to day it finally resolves itself
Remember that three to 10 of Bran
dretb's Pills will cure the worst case of
indigestion or dyspepsia, or both, and
that a regular course of them, say two
every night fur a week or 10 days, will
act as a preventive of either complaint.
