over the election of a republican

Ix an interview in the State Regis
ter Gov. Altgeld gives facts which
thoroughly justify the changes he has
caused to be made in the superin
tendents and managers of the various
state institutions. These institu
tions, the governor shows, have not
only been mismanaged professionally,
but have been made republican po
litical machines. The people have
realized that this was the case for
some time past, and that is one rea
son why they elected Gov. Altgeld
last fall. The governor in his inter
view demonstrates that the journals

are talking about, or are willfully
Rock Island democrats in common

their own election resuts in view of
the disasters that have befallen their

It is not to be said however, that the
cities last mentioned are to be con
sidered as irretrievably lost to the
democracy questions of local move

results. And then again the rule
that a party is apt to fall off in an
election immediately succeeding such
a signal triumph as that of last fall,
seems to have applied, but Rock Isl

FEMININE GUEST8 AT HOTELS.
Their Trsableeome Caprice and TJnlesl
; able Things Tbey Don't Do.
A woman at a hotel is like a live
wire on a frolic or a runaway horse
at a funeral. She can give and coun
termand more orders in 15 minutes
after her trunks come up than a
man could think of in a week. She
writes half a dozen letters a day,
using three or four sheets of the hotel
paper in each one, and calls up a bell
boy to mail each one separately. She
puts all sorts of things in the safe,
and no one minds that so much as
the things she doesn't put there, but
is perfectly sure she did. Of course
she finds them up stairs under the
pillow and apologizes so prettily one
can't help but be glad she made the
She never makes out a wash list, but
she "knows" exactly what she had,
and one pair hasn't been returned.
She keeps the ponderous bell boy
promenading up and down stairs all
day with roses and cards, parcels
and messages and never remembers
to tip him, but it is good for his di
gestion, makes him earn his wages
and teaches him the philosophy of
life. She sends down word to know
just when the 5 o'clock train goes
out and what tino the 7 o'clock lim
ited gets in. but 6he doesn't come
home reeling in after the play to find
out who 6he is or where she is at
any way. She will tack up photo
graphs on the wall, but she doesn't
go to bed with her boots on.
She expects the chambermaid to
clean her gowns and pack her trunks,
but she doesn't set the sheets on fire
smoking in bed or break the mirrors
with her umbrella and play football
with the furniture, even in her fun
niest moods. She wants no end of
extra towels, but she doesn't polish
her boots with them. Of course she
doesn't eat as much or drink as
much or spend as much money as a
man, but she can mako things more
lively with her cards and callers, the
people she is "in" to and the people
she is "out" to, than a house full of
She wants to live all over the house,
and why not? A pretty woman read
ing in a parlor, or waiting on a hall
seat or scribbling letters in her queer
angular hand at the writing table is
ever so much more interesting an
attraction than a barrel of "brico
break," a potted palm or a jardiniere
full of flowers. Ever since the days
of the garden eviction men have fol
lowed where women have led, and
the hotel where women most do con
gregate is sure to have a generous
following of men. Indeed it is a
question if a pretty woman that will
sit around in a stained glass attitude
and a handsome gown ought not to
have special rates if she isn t paid a
There is one thing a woman will do
every time, and that is insist that
there is something wrong about her
bill. She "knows" just what she has
had and is sure there is a mistake,
and you have charged her too much ;
but, bless her heart, she always pays.
Sunshine isn't surer in June than a
woman's honesty. She never is so
'dead broke" at the end of the trip
that she has to pawn her things or
give security on her trunks. And if
you do succeed in pleasing her she
will tell every one from here to the
Golden Gate that your hotel is the
only decent place in town. A drum
mer working on commission and giv
ing his whole time to it can't work
up half the custom that one well
suited woman will send you if you
humor her little caprices, serve her
dainty little dishes of nothing sweet
ened and tied up with bows and fix
up her bill so that you can afford to
discount it a bit when she leaves.

was the proprietor.
"Can you gimme a dime?" asked
the visitor meekly.
"I can, but I hardly think I shall,"
was the cheerful response. "Why in

"I can't afford to," whined the
"Can't you, indeed? Water's plen

"Don't it?" queried the tramp.
"No, it don't."

An goddesses nobody b'lieves la no more;
In a kin of a classical ting-a-ling-ling.
They say the same things we have all hears
In a langwidge so gran
That we cant nnderstan.

The Green Cap of the Bankrupt.
There was a law in force in France
for a century or more that compelled
bankrupts to wear green caps. This
was done to prevent tradesmen from
being imposed upon by such as were
unable or unwilling to pay. Succes
sive edicts enlarged the privileges of
bankruptcy, but they forfeited them
if they appeared in public without
green caps. If those who cannot or
will not pay their debts were com
pelled to wear such caps at tho pres
ent day, the streets of most of our
cities would have rather a verdant
appearance. -Philadelphia Ledger.
Deafness Cannot be Cored
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deaf
ness, and that is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused by an
inflamed condition of the mucous
lining of the eustachian tube. When
this tube gets inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect hear
ing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the
inflammation can be taken out and
this tube restored to its normal con
dition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever; nine cases out of ten are caused
by catarrh, which is nothing but an
inflamed condition of the mucous
We will give One Hundred Dollars
for any case of deafness (caused by
catarrh) that cannot be cured by
