New York papers are asking that
claps bo taken to govern bicycle rid

now so commonly used that the priv

be abused. Reckless bicycling is as
dangerous to pedestrians as reckless
driving. If wheelmen do not want
their sport to become unpopular they
will join in framing regulations.
No one objects to the bicycle rider
who has due regard to the rights of

is feminine, and when he doesn't

Tvidcnt fact as follows:
During the tariff battle William II.
JSpringcr should be at the head of the
committee on ways and means. His
-service in congress, his knowledge of
the question at issue, his ability as a
deader, constitute his qualifications
lor the post. But above and beyond
Ihis, he is a western man. It was
the west that won the light against
McKinleyism, and it is to the west
that the democracy must look not
only for its immediate strength, but
Jot its recruits in the future. Mr.
, Springer is imbued with the western
spirit of revolt against the federal
protectionism with which some of the
eastern democratic states arc tainted.
Jle is the logical loader in the cam
paign for tariff reform, and the west
will not be satisfied unless he shall
be given the post. .

MUSIC WITH MEAL8.
Fisrobed In the Street.
There is a yonng colored damsel in
Washington whoso soul is at present
filled with wrath because of tho sum
mary action taken by a society woman
to whom she had loen handmaiden.
With way? that are dark and tricks that
are vain the young woman proved her
self conversant by making away with
articles of value. Among these was a
silk dress of which her mistress had been
especially tond. Though accused of the
theft, the v-oman stoutly denied it and
took herdismissal, vehemently protesting
her innocence. Not long afterward, as
the danght r of Ham was sailing down
the street in all the glory of the stolen
garment, she came upon her mistress
rapidly wt Iking toward her with the
look of a g:-eat purpose in her eye.
Retreat vas impossible, as was a fail
ure to comply with the astonishing de
mand that she then and there divest
herself of t ie gown. As the alternative
was to lie immediately handed over to
the police, the perturbed yonng woman
did as she vas bid with all speed possi
ble, and in as brief a time as it takes to
tell the tal 3 she stood with her ebony
perfections exposed to public view while
in an opposite direction her former mis
tress walke 1 away, bearing in triumph
the stolen roperty. Kate Field's Wash
ington. How Not to Exterminate the Indians.
Let us not vigorously crowd the Indi
ans to abandon tribal -organization. If
this is don before they are ready for it,
they will s irely lapse into degradation.
Let them remain in cotipact bodies on
reservation ! to help one another over the
change and do not compel them to com
mingle and compete with the white race
in a struggle in which they must be hope
lessly doomed. Slowly by law and by
instruction teach them the value of our
property la .vs. Do not force citizenship !
upon them, but let them sue for it. We
should hold ourselves ever ready to grant
it, but let tl.em first discover its benefits.
If such a policy is maintained for two
generations more, the problem will be
solved the remnant of the Indians will
be saved and absorbed in modern en
lightenment. Major J. W. Powell in

One Respect In Which Oklahoma Hotel
Keepers Are Vp to Date.
The hotels of Oklahoma up to last fall
were few and far between. Having tried
several with little satisfaction, a party
of hungry "tenderfeet" was directed by
a commercial traveler to a little place
on a corner. The commercial man said
it did not look inviting, but it was clean.
That was an inducement the party had
not heard of in that section, and it
t?rned in for supper. The dining room
was one in which the family lived. A
folding bed stood in one corner. ' An old
time bureau was opposite. A box stove
was in the way, and about it were
several old fashioned rockers. A few
family pictures huhg from the wall,
with tho old, old motto, invoking tho
blessing of tho powers celestial on the
household. The party asked for eupper
and was told to be seated until the meal
was prepared. Two girls, delicate and
with much weariness in their faces,
spread the table. When the meal was
brought on, they simply said, "Supper is
ready" and disappeared.
The party gathered about the meal,
and it was agreeably disappointing.
While it was being devoured that is the
best word to use, even at this distance
from tho table tho two girls camo into
tho room, accompanied by their mother,
a woman whose hair was white and
whoso face was a study. There must
have been a time when she was beauti
ful. They came in as if they had been
billed for the occasion. They went to
one corner of the room, and then tho
party discovered that there was one of
those oldtimemelodeonsin an out of the
way place. The mother took her place
at the keys, and as the mournful melo
dies responded to her touch the daugh
ters sang, "Nearer My God to Thee,"
"Nellie Gray," and then "Lorena."
Think of "Lorena" on a melodeon in
Oklahoma! The party having finished
supper, one of them paid the bill, and
then the music ceased. It was a ques
tion which no one of that party was ever
able to agree upon, or they had not up
to last accounts. Was the music of that
night for the purpose of entertainment
or to forestall the possibility of dupli
cating any of the orders? Chicago
A Problem That Is a Problem.
A group of gentlemen were gathered
about the desk engaged in earnest en
deavors to figure out a mathematical
problem brought over by a prominent
young member of tho New York bar,
who 6tands to loso 100 on a wager if
his own solution is wrong. Hero it is:
A column of troop3 5 miles long is or
dered to a point 2." miles distant. A
courier starts simultaneously with tho
rear of the column and reaches tho head
thereof. Returning, he meets tho rear
of tho column at tho point where tho
head originally was. Both the troops
and the courier are to travel at a uni
form rate of speed. How many miles
does the courier traverse?
It looks simple. The young New York
er said it was simple and that it didn't
take a mathematical sharp to figure that
the courier journeyed even 50 miles. The
man who made the bet with him was a
Philadelphian, and he called in Professor
Thunder, a teacher of mathematics, sai l
to be the greatest cspert in tho Quaker
City. The professor figured r.t it svwhile
and said it was plain that the courier
covered over 50 miles, but just how much
more he wouldn't undertake to s:.y off
hand. The man from Gotham was not satis
fied with the Philadelphia professor's
conclusion, so on reaching Washington
he hunted up Professor George Hill, the
clerk to the house irrigation committee
and and export in mathematics, who in
turn referred him to Professor Wood
ward of the coast and geodetic survey.
His answer was fent in and appeared nt
tho bottom of a long sheet of algebraic
equations. It was CO. 3 miles. And still
the New Yorker is not satisfied. Before
giving up the $100 he is going to have the
opinion of the professor of mathematics
of Columbia college. It will take no less
an authority than that to shake his be
lief in the correctness of his own cipher
ing, which, he admits, was not done with
the help of quadratic equations. Wash

Is it Gradually Growing Duller ?
Catarrh Causes it Stop
Mr. Peterson's case illustrates the
danger of allowing these troubles to
run on, and should be carefully read
A verv large per cent of these cases
of deafness and roaring noises is due
to the extension of catarrh to the
eustachian tubes and inner ears.
Many of the most remarkable cures
that have been accomplished by the
physicians of the Scott Medical In
stitute have been in the restoration
of hearing lost or dulled from ca-
tarrhal extension. It is folly to wait
for a trouble like this to iret well it
self. It don't get well, but always
gets worse, until trcrrncntlv tne hear.
ing is entirely destroyed. A thor
ough course of treatment with a ca
pablo specialist, who goes right at
the cause of the trouble and removes
it, is the only hope.

Mr. Peterson says he is c-u-r-e-d.
and as well as he ever was. Dr.
Wilson says he is c-u-r-e-d. . Write
and ask Mr. Peterson if it is not so.
To the fuMfe.
Dr. Wilson has reported a case
like the foregoing, each week ortwo.
for the past three years in the tri
city papers. In the case of Mr.
Peterson, Dr. Wilson would state, he
has lived in Hock Island county for
over 30 years. He is director of a
lire insurance company, and is also
connected with the management of
Augustana college. Is he a man to
be relied on? Let the public judge.
Within the past three months Dr.
Wilson has published the statements
and pictures of a number of minis
ters who say under their own signa
tures that they have been c-u-r-e-d
at tho Scott Medical Institute, Can
they be relied on as telling the truth?
Let the public judge.
Dr. Wilson has noticed a senseless
tirade against him by a young iirm
trying to do business in the tri-cities.
Some three weeks ago Dr.-Wilson in
serted in the papers astatement to the
effect that he would notice this baby
tirm no more in print. Todav he
says the same thing. It is no pleas
ure for us to work for nothing.
Dr, Wilson has business interests
at stake in this state. The "blowing
firm" have nothing to lose here
nothing that can be touched there
fore we decline to "bark where we
can not bite."
Dr. Wilson wishes to' announce
to the general public that his diplo
ma is registered with the county
clerk in this city and shows he has
practiced medicine years before
either of this "great tirm" entered
Should we condescend to answer
this "great firm" in the manner in
which they assailed the Scott Medi
cal Institute, we could bring forward
proof, which we have held in our
Jiossession for months, that
would make them beat a hasty re
treat from our city, or wish they had
never opened this discus .-on.
Dr. Wilson's plan has always been
"let our patients talk for us" And
when he has to "blow his own horn"
for the sake of deceiving the public,
he will take down the sign "Scott
Medical Institute" and close his bus
iness. Does this look reliable? Let the
