Cable's Devotloa to Hia Party.
Ben Cable doesn't want a foreign mis

Rock Island district, who so successfully
managed tbe democratic campaign in the
west, bas been so persistently played as a
favorite for minister to France or some
other high diplomatic post that it has
come to be taken for granted that he
would take such an appointment, unless
perchance be might prefer to represent
Illinois ia President Cleveland's cabinet.
But Congressman Cable says he wouldn't
take anything, and he ought to know.
It was at tbe close of an interview on
various political questions that Mr Cable,
in answer to a jocular question as to his
own chances of preferment under tbe
Cleveland administration, returned the

the past 20 years I did not breathe
through my nose. In all that length of
time 1 did not get any permanent relief
and I thought my case hopeless when I
visited Dr. Wi son of the Scott Medical
Institute. I lad dull headache oyer the
eyes, my nose was bo filled up I could
not breathe an I I had a constant dia
cbarga of mucuous into my throat. I was
troubled with ieafness, and at times I
was very dizzj. My stomch bothered
me and in fact I was generally debilt&t
ed. I was candidly told I bad catarrh
and also nasal polypii. I know I had
some growth ia my nose, for at times
tbe disease would trouble me eo bad that
the polypii woe Id be quite plain to be seen.

Many years ao, when sailing vessels
were the otly means cf communication le
tween the different countries, superstition
was more rife among Bailors than at the
present time. These nbsurd fancies were
not confined to .lack nlone, but they were
shared in to a greater or less extent by
shipmasters and owners. Friday was con
sidered a day of evil, and the most malig
nant results were supposed to attend a
voyage commenced on this day of the
week. In those days he would indeed have
been a reckless skipper who would have
attempted to sail on this ill omened day,
for the crew would have broken out in
open rebellion rather than lift the anchor
from the bottom or cast off ahorc moorings.
Since the advent of steam many of these
prejudices have become as derelict as the
ships on which they were once entertained.
