William E. Woodward, the venerable
father of Mrs Judge Lucian Adams, died
at his home, 830 Nineteenth street, at
T30 o'clock yesterday morning of a
dropsical affection, aged 73 years. He
had resided in the city about 24 years
and was well and favorably known. Mr.
Woodward leaves a window and four
children, Mrs. Judge Lucian Adams of
this city, and Mrs. Samuel Seaburg. Mrs.
C. A. Jamison and W.H.Woodward, of
Judge Adams, who has been in the
east, was telegraphed for and will be

funeral has not been decided, though it
will probably be held on Friday.
Fail to do Our 3uty.
Everybody has at times failed to do
their duty toward themselves. Hun
dreds of lady readers suffer from sick
headache, nervousness, sleepiesness and
female troubles. Let them follow the
example of Mrs. H. Herbechter, Stevens
Point. Wis., who for five years suffered
greatly from nervous prostration and
sleeplessness, tried physicians and differ
ent medicines without success. But one
Bottle of Dr. Miles' Nervine caused sound
sleep every night and she is feeling like a
aew person. Mrs. Elizabeth Wheeler.
Laramie City, Wyoming, who tried all
ether remedies, declares that after three
weeks' use of the Nervine for headache,
servous prostration, etc., she was en
tirely relieved. Sold by Hartz A Babn

It will be remembered that in the last
legislature the Democrats of the house
passed a bill repealing the obnoxious
features of the Edwards school law, and
that the Republican senate passed a bill
as odious as the Edwards law itself.
Neither house would accept the bill of
the other, and the conference committee
could not agree, so the legislature ad
journed without anything being done.
Now the Republican senators are clainv.
ir.g that they would have agreed to the
house bill if the adjournment had not
come so quick, and two of them have
made affidavits to that effect.
This reminds xue of an incident which
occurred at the soldiers home in Quincy
a couple of years ago. One day one of
the veterans came to Superintendent
Rowland with a bloody nose, complain
ing that one of his comrades had as
"What did you do to prevoke the
assault 7" asked the superintendent.
"Tell me how it came about?"
"Why, you see we were talking, and I
called him a liar, and he knocked me
down without giving me a chance to
take it back."
It looks as if the Republican senate
got its black eye in the same way.
- - INDICATIONS. -- -. v. - -.
The off year elections in Illinois have
for a score of years proved sure indica
tions of the presidential election follow
ing. Democratic gains in an off year
always precede Democratic gains two
years later, while Democratic losses in
the off year, are as surely followed by
Democratic losses in the presidential
election. In the off year of 1874 the
Democrats elected their candidate for
superintendent of public instruction,
and this was followed in 1876 by a defeat
that was nearly a victory, for Cullom
was elected by enly about 6,000. In
1878, being an off year, the Democrats
feU back again and lost the state by
36,000, and this was followed by Han
cock's crushing defeat in 1S80. In 1882
the Republicans fell short, Raab was
elected superintendent of public instruc
tion, and Orendortf was barely defeated
for state treasurer. In 1884 the Demo
crats again forged to the front, Carter
Harrison made his great run, and the
party tied for the legislature. In the off
year of 1S86 the Democrats got a black
eye, and in 1SSS were, as the boys say,
not in it. "While Palmer ran Fifer close,
the legislative and congressional tickets
were nowhere. In 18tH) the Democrats
made their greatest gains ; they elected
all of their state ticket, fourteen out of
twenty congressmen, ami a majority of
the members of the general assembly,
which elected Gen. Palmer United States
senator. Tiie iK'iii.xratic majorities
ranged O.tHH) to :ii.tiiHl. That this victory
will le followi-d l.y another in 18!'
seems certain. T1k- JT c.;r prophecy
has never iailed. lor tin-re are rea nns
for it. This ye::r. not only tlx prophecy,
but th conditions gem-rally, are so
favorable to the Democrats that the re
sult can hardiy i.e donlKed.
thi.y iu"x ni:nir.
In Illinois the Republican candidates
for governor have for twenty years in
variably run behind the presidential
ticket. In 1872 Oglesby's plurality was
about 15,000 less than Grant's, in 1876
Cullom fell short of Hayes about 12,000,
in 1880 he dropped behind Garfield about
8,000. in 1884 Oglesby failed to keep up
with Blaine by about 10,000, and in 1888
Fifer was left by Harrison by about the
same number of votes. This difference
is due to the suspicion of ring rule and
corruption in our affaire. The Repub
licans have been in control in Illinois
for a generation, and the same old crowd
seem to be hanging on the offices. A
young Republican was heard to say
recently that a man might as well be a
Democrat as to have to wait for the old
bosses of the Republican party to die or
AN OBJECT LESSON.
So we are to have a little taste of the
force bill this year. The Republicans
have made application for federal inter
ference in the election in Illinois, so that
in cities of 20,000 and upward Republican
workers in the guise and having the
authority of United States marshals will
warm at the polls and attempt the
intimidation of Democratic voters. It
will prove an object lesson in Republican
politics, and we shall lose nothing by it.
The people are jealous of their local
rights, and will resent with their votes
any attempt on the part of the federal
authorities to interfere with the freedom
of the franchise.
The readers of the Akgcb will be pleased
to learn that there is at least one dreaded
disease that science has been able to cure
in all its stages, and that is catarrh.
Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only positive
cure now known to the medical fraternity.
Catarrh being a constitutional disease, re
quires a constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Cure is taken internally, acting
directly upon the blood and mucous sur
faces of the system, thereby destroying
the foundation of the disease, and giving
the patient strength by building up the
constitution and assisting uature in doing
its work. The proprietors have so much
