Repkesentbtive Wilson, of West
Virginia, prospective chairman of
the ways and means committee of
the house, favors the repeal of the 10
per cent tax on state bank circula
tion, as a practical compromise with
silver champions of the south and
west. He believes that the rejeal -of
the Sherman law can be brought
about if accompanied with tie other
repeal, and that no injury will result
from the utterance of state bank
Dotes. They would not be legal
tender and it would be at the option
of any one whether they accepted
them or not, and if they circulated
at all they would need to be
above suspicion. Mr. Wilson does
not believe that the currency
which min-ht be issued under
Mate authority would have
the "wild cat" character possessed
by that issued before the Mar. It
would satisfy t he demand existing in
certain localities for more currency
and would thus gain votes for the re
peal of the Sherman law. The lat
ter islhe more dangerous of the two.
It threatens he thinks, the standard of
value, whereas state currency would
brine: about financial disturbance
only in particular sections and in
stances if at all. The main mone
tary circulation of the country would
remain as now, iruaranteed bv the
United States. The state currency
would be generally connneu to local
circulation and would return to the
banks issuing it if not needed by the
commerce of the country. This is
the theory on which state currency is
defined. It seems better than the
Sherman law in the prospect it offers.

"Have you ever noticed, said a St.
Loaisan, "those massive iron
pillars in t& basement of the
mw Planters '. house? Well, did
you ever stop to think of the
immense weight they will be com
pelled to support steadily for many,
many years? Oh, yon have. But I
suppose yon have thought the manu
facturers just made those pillars and
sold them without knowing how much
weight they would bear or how long
they would bear it. Let me tell you
"Those pillars are cast in the same
manner as are cast-iron stoves by
running the liquid metal into sand
molds, but alongside of each pillar is
cast an iron bar, from the same metal.
The bar is precisely an inch square
and five and one-half feet in length.
When 'cold it is subjected to a very
simple test. Each end of the bar is
placed upon a table, and weights are
suspended from the center by a rope.
It must bear a tensile strength of 500
pounds to the square inch. The test
may begin with 400 pounds and be
gradually Increased until the bar is
found to be perfectly supporting the
required weight- If it breaks, for in
stance, at 4So ot 490 pounds then the
pillar cast from the pot of metal
which cast tbe bar is dis
carded broken up and put into
the pot again, with more pig-iron
added. The pillars, you knotv, are
largely made from scrap-iron, and the
manufacturers cannot know the
strength of the cast until it is tested.
The addition of pig-iron in the event
of failure, brings the cast up to the
"Six or eight of the pillars designed
for the new Tlanters' house had to be
recast in this way.
Why His Trade
Is Not so Profitable In
"So, barbering is not a money making-
business," said Kueffner, as he
deftly wielded his razor. "I know of
only one man in my experience who
became wealthy at it, and that was a
man who used to keep the barber shop
in the United States hotel in Fulton
street, New York. He retired with a
comfortable fortune, but he was one
man in a thousand.
"Barbering was much more profita
ble fifteen years ago than it is to-day.
At that time it was the custom for
nearly every patron to have his own
pomatum, face powder, hair Oil and
hair restorer in the rack beside his cup.
It was generally believed at that time
that hair could be made to grow on
a bald head, and also that many of the
mixtures on the market would prevent
hair from falling out. But those ideas
axe thoroughly exploded now, due
largely, I think, to the publicity given
to the subject by the newspapers.
"I have no doubt that many xqen
now bald would be well thatched wire
it not that they used so much hair oil.
It is the exception at the present time
in my shop when a man will permit
me to put oil on his head, many of
them preferring- to have tbe hair
combed dry. When your head becomes
dirty wash it thoroughly with soap
and water, and if you wish it to take
on a luster like the raven's wing brush
it for five minutes night and morning
with a soft brush. The large income
derived from the sale of the emolli
ents referred to being now cut off,
the trade of the barber cannot now be
classed with that of the plumber and
the coal dealer as a money-making
THE KILAUEA VOLCANO.
Its Condition Reported Safo for Vis
itors From Honolulu.
The floor of Kilauea is at certain
periods subject tooverflow by floods of
fresh lava from Ilalemaumau, which
will probably destroy large sections of
the aforesaid trail, necessitating much
labor in renewing it. This can hardly
occur under two years from now, as it
will probably take that length of time
tmr the level of the molten lake to
work up the 200 feet or more necessary
to cnajtlf it to discharge itself on the
main floor. During the last period of
overflow, in 1899-S0, many thousands
of acres of the main floor of Kilauea
received fresh coatings of lava. In
the immediate vicinity of Ilalemau
mau pit the lava coatings were piled
to a thickness of from twenty to 6fty
Meantime, tbe lake, 800 feet in di
ameter, is overflowing every few days
upon the lava floor around it, which Is,
norhiTM. 5.10 feet lower than the brink
of the circular pit. which is 2,400 feet
in diameter. The, American minister,
who was there recently, counted
twelve Are fountains playing in the
lalr tut nnp time. In April last we
measured the largest fountain with an
instrument. Tbe bellow, pulsating
thrice a minute, was fifty feet in
diameter, and thirty feet high. Its
action was steady and incessant dur
inn h week we were there. Other
fountains were more furious, but in
termittent. On the whole, the present
uoect of the volcano is unusually sat
isfactory for observation by visitors.
Do Animals Dream?
I have two animals at home that
dream and talk in their sleep very
much as do human beings. One is a
bloodhound and the other a canary.
Late the other night, when I got home
from work, I heard a peculiar muffled
sound coming from the bird's cage.
Stepping up to it I found it was the
bird singing. He had his head neatly
tucked under his wing, but was sing
ing away on one of his favorite songs
Just as if the sun was shining and he
was overjoyed to see it. Frequently
during the night or day the dog I men
tioned will begin to growl or bark in
his sleep. Then again he will wag his
tail and show every sign of pleasure at
some thought passing through his
brain, all the time beinar sound aaleea,

Pbospect, O., March 19.
For two years I had been more or less
fSicted with headaches and had failed
to find any relief. I was recommended
to use Kickapoo Indian Sagwa during
my last attack and did so. My head
ache stopped, and I have had no returns
of it since. My headaches came from a
liver and stomach trouble, and the
Sagwa made its curative effects felt at
once. I cheerfully recommend Kick

afflicted, believing it to be the greatest
blessing of the human race.

Rev. M. A. Nordstrom has Words of
Praise for the Scott Medical Insti
tute Catarrh of, the Nose, Throat
Rev. M. A. Nordstrom says: "I
am a clergyman residing at Wood
hull, 111., ami have frequently
thought I would have to resign my
charge. The cause of my trouble
was catarrh, and that in its worst
form, as I have been so informed by
noted specialists in Europe and
America. I grew very weak, hail
severe headache, and spots would ap
pear before my eyes, mucus dropped
continually into my throat, and,
juissing into my stoniac-h, caused dis
tressing pain. I became deaf in
fact so bad I could scarcely hear.
KEV. M..A. XOWtSTKOM, WOOPlirLL,
"Having lieen in this condition for
10 vears 7 -v-r ?? ""w'' Being
acquainted at the Augustanaco-.ege,
at which institution I studied for the
ministry, I was there informed of
the success of the Scott Medical In
stitute in treating such diseases. I
am thankful to say I visited them,
and happy to say "CURE D." Af
ter treating in Europe and this coun
try without success, I can say truth
fully I am cured, and the physicians
of the Scott Medical Institute cured
me in two months."
A copy of this statement can be
seen at th e Scott Medical Institute,
with Rev. Mr. Nordstrom's signa
t u re.
TAKE TREATMENT NOW!
Time and again the physicians of
tbe Scott Medical Institute have ad
vised patients in desperate stages of
catarrhal trouble to wait until sum
mer before taking treatment. Time
and again they have urged the neces
sity of taking treatment while the
weather was favorable to a cure.
Now is that time. Those who suf
fer from catarrh should take advan
tage of all the inlluences that operate
now in favor of a cure. They should
not put off treatment until nextwin
ter's stormy days, but should pru
dently "mend their roof while the
sun shines." Now is the time, and
the opportunity is just what Is de
sired for the worst cases. Do not let
it go by, but place yourself under
treatment of the Scott Medical Insti
tute, and have done for you in t lie
next month or two what might not
be possible to do until nest summer.

If so. you are an easy victim for
