The new postal money orders will
soon be issttscd. In the new system
ihrc will be no complication. Sheets
will be issued calling for amounts
from 1 cent to $3, which can be torn
off to suit the purchaser. The post
master will have no writing to do on
it and the sender will simply indorse
it the same as he would a check or a
draft. One cent will pay the charges
for any amount up to $3.
If, as now seems probable, Vice
Admiral Sir George Tryon acknowl
edged that the sinking of the Victo
ria ami the drowning of hundreds of
men was "all his fault,"1 his calmness
in going to the bottom with his ship
is quite intelligible. 15ut his action
in signaling the boats which put off
for rescue to go back to their shins is
not compatible with any theory of
sanity. The man had just come from
the sick list; his mind was foggv and
uncertain and its temporary aberra
tion cost his country hundreds of
precious lives, of which his own was
the most valuable. It is a question
if the ship's surgeon is not the per
son to be held responsible for the
Itravr Martthal Murphy.
Those people who are out. toma
hawk in hand, looking for Marshal
Murphy's scalp, might just as well
go off and die at once. The ladies
are with him. The board of 1 adv
managers of the World's fair voted
to present medals to Fire Marshal
Murphy anil his companions who so
gallantly rescued ("apt. Fitzpatrick
from the flames of the cold storage
Marshal Murphy exemplified his
bravery again lhursdav night when
he led the way up the steel frame
work of the Manufactures building
at the World's fair to the dizzy
height of 2"0 feet arid extinguished
a lire that had caught in the canva
awninirs. The Hank All Kiplit.
Not only is Towa all riirht viewed
at from an agricultural standpoint
but it is all right financially. Xo
man understands these things better
than Comptroller Eckles, whose bus
iness is to know all about the condi
tion of the national banks, and just
before his departure from Washing,
ton to New York, he said to a corrcs'
pondent of the Des Moines Leader:
"The people themselves are often
to blame lor disastrous bank fail'
nres," continued the comptroller
If courage and self-control were al
ways exercised by all classes of busi
ness men and by those having deal
ings witn banking institutions in
times like those which we have been
going itirougn mere wouiu be no
need of the failures of any legitimate
banking institutions. Let the people
exercise a little reason deposit
rather than withdraw funds and

would be. Fortunately the prospects

Wheelmen in Polities.
The riders sf wheels all over the
country are talking of entennjr mu
nicipal politics to set; what they can
do for the making of better street
and roads and the enforcement of
the laws relating to the use of streets.
A prominent wheelman says that in
Louisville t hey are organizing for a
fight on this question, and they ex
pect to win. Only a few weeks ago
in St. Louis the wheelmen of tiiat
city revolutionized the entire city
government by taking part in the
city election. They elected the
mayor, 27 out of 21) members of the
assembly, and every member of the
city council. For years they have
been petitioning the powers for good
streets and clean streets and a re
lief from the exeessire street Hood
ing by the sprinkling monopoly.
They asked nothing except what
every good citizen recognized as just
and right. But their requests were
laughed at and ignored. Then they
went at the matter in a systematic
way. A few months before the elec
tion a meeting was held and an or
ganization perfected. It took the
character of a gigantic club, and
erery bicycle rider in the city became
a member. "Clean streets" was the
platform, and it was popular. Every
candidate, from mayor down, was
asked to state in writing his views
on the question, and those whose
pledges were the most satisfactory
were placed on the wheelman's tick
et. Election day came, and just two
out of nearly 50 candidates on the
ticket indorsed by the wheelmen
were defeated. It was a clean sweep.
Politics cut no figure in the fight. j
ONLY A BOGUS OBELISK.
The Professional Liar of the Bridge
Poses as "Mr. Vanderbllt."
One young woman was a stranger
in the city, the other had been here
once before. One was a blonde, the
other tk brunette. They were stand
ing on the platform at the New York
tower of the bridge. The blonde was
telling her companion what little
she know and much more that she
didn't know about the city's sights.
Near them stood a tall man of the
masher variety. He was playing the
Ignoble part of eavesdropper, says
the New York Advertiser.
Nov, Buth, that is the Egyptian
obelisk." said the blonde, pointing
toward the well-known shot tower in
the lower part of the city.
"Is that so? You don't mean that
brown, shaft-like thing over there?"
Yes. that's Cleopatra's needle,
dear, ai d it was brought over hero at
great expense by generous Mr. Van
dcrbilt. Wasn't it real good of him?"
"It isn't worth mentioning, ladies,"
interrurted the masher, suddenly
stepping forward. "Anybody, if they
had had the means, would have done
just the same as I did. It's a mere
trifle ar d I would be glad to do it
again ary day.
"Why!" exclaimed the young
woman in amazement, "are you Mr.
"At your service, ladies, replied
the masher, with a low, sweeping
Although the fair creatu.-es looked
incredulous they began to question
him aboi t the famous relic, and kept
the impudent fellow busy giving al
"Well," finally said the blonde im
petuously, -'what are those tiny win
"Lady," was the cool response,
"those aro not windows; they are
air-holes. Egyptians had to breathe
just the fame as anybody else.'1'
In despair the young women
looked inquiringly toward a near-by
policeman and he came to their re
lief. "1 happeni to overhear your con
versation, ladies, so I'll take the
trouble to say that that is not an
obelisk, ait all; it's simply a shot
Crestfallen and abashed the bogus
Mr. Vandorbilt walked away. The
young women had met the profes
sional liar of the bridge.
A MEDIEVAL MURDER.
The Prime Minister of a Native Indian'
The stcry of the murder of the
primo minister of the. native state of
Ulwar, in Northwestern India, reads
more like a tale from the' criminal
annals of tome mediaeval Italian prin
cipality than a record of the present
day. Thi minister was murdered
while out riding by a gang of assQ
sins. Tho inquiry ordered by the
Indian government has resulted not
only in the conviction of one of the
principal military officers of the
Ulwar stats, but in a declaration by
the court that the murder was ex
ecuted by order of the late mahat a
jah of Ulwur.
It appeals that this personage, de
siring for sundry reasons to have the
minister removed," confided the
task to ths officer commanding tho
imperial scvice troops that is, the
force which the Ulwar state under
takes to send into the field should
the Indian government call for its
services. This worthy got together
a gang of men, including some of his
own soldiei-s, waylaid the minister,
and, while some of the party pa
trolled the road, others as one ol
them who turned queen's evidence
expressed it "used their swords."
They pleaded in defense that they
were obliged to carry out the orders
of the muha-ajah in committing the
act. Tho co art held that such orders
had been given, but decided that
they constit itcd no defense, and sen
tenced two f tho party to death and
others to va -ious terms of penal ser
vitude. Adequately to appreciate
this affair, it should be remembered
that Ulwar i no wild hill state on
the outci confines of India, but an
ancient prir cipality in the heart of
the country, within a short distance
of Delhi. The late maharajah had
received an English education, and
Ulwar is in many respects accounted
an excellently administered state.

WHY THKV SI CCKKH.
The remakable success which the
Scott Medical Institute has achieved
in every department of its practice
has created a good deal of comment,
not only among the people who are
afllieted with chronic diseases, but
also among brother practition
ers and the question is often asked:
"What is the cause of this large
measure of success?" The answer
may be stated in a few words. In
the first place the physicians of the
Scott Medical Institute are skilled
In the second place they give their
whole time to their patients and to
their profession. When they are not
in the consultation room in attend
ance upon their patients, they are
discussing the peculiar features of
individual cases, so that they may
be ready to apply the result of their
deliberations in the consulting room.
This is the whole secret of their
With them the science of medicine
is a constant growth, and every case
a special study. Not a point that
has anv poible bearing on the case
in hand is overlooked. This is the
reason that they succeed where others

derstood that he neither has the time
nor inclination to enter into a con
troversy with the man whose BRAINS
