city, 'His birthplace was in East 20th
atreot, Now York city, and tho date
Octobor 27, 1858, which made him tho
youngest President when ho sue-
eodod to that high office three years
ago. His fathoi', Theodore, bolonged
to an old nud wealthy Knickerbocker
family, and his mother was a do
scondent of Archibald' Bullock, first
president of Georgia during tho Revo
lution. As n young man Roosevelt was ox
ceodlngly frail from a physical view
point. Ho was sunt to prlvnto
schools during his early school years
and proparotlon for Harvard univer
sity to avoid tho rough), treatment of
boys In pu'jt: jchools lie was a
dovotoo to all athletic sports at Har
Yard and when ho graduated from that
institution in 1S80 hist hualth was
vory much Improved. Aftor extontfod
travel In Europe, ho returned to this
country, studied law for a few mouths
and thou plunged nt onco Into tho
maelstrom of municipal politics. Ho
was elected In 1881 an assomblyman
from tho 21st nssombly district of
Now York. At Albany ho was prompt
ly dubhbd a Mil: atookins" nnd a
"freak of a popular oleotlon. Mr.
Jtoosovolt. thou but 23 years old, soon
asucceodod In making himself the
tornv figutcr. His bOBt known work
in tho rfglslaturo at this tirao was in
connection with tho passago ot the
acts abolishing tho feo system iu
county ofllces and ' in depriving the
board of aldermen of their veto power
of tho mayor's appointments. This
was a relic of tho Tweod regime.
In 1884 Mr. Roosevelt went to Chi
cago as a delegate to the Republican
national convention. Ho opposed
tho nomination of Blaine, but when
Mr. Blaine becamo tho Republican
choice, Mr. Roosevelt fell into, line
and worked for tho party candidate's
success, After retiring from the legis
lature Mr. Roosovelt spent some time
at his ranch in North Dakota.
In 1886 ho was again In tho turmoil
of Now York City politics. Henry
Qeorgo was a candidate for mayor.
Abraham) S. Hewitt was the nominee
o tho Den.ocn.s. Mr U.ioscvoll
was put in tho field by tho Republi-
cans. Mr, Howltt won. Koosovolt
next attractod notice, as a lututcr of
big game. Ho dollghtod In hunting
tho grizzly bears and othor fierce nnl
mals of tho west.
President Harrison in 1889 appoint
ed Mr. Roosovelt United States civil
boivIco commissioner. Prosidont
Cleveland rotnlnod him in office, al
though 'Mr, Roosovelt resigned in 1895
to bocomo- president of tho Now York
board of pollco commissioners. His,
sorvlco as1, pollco, commissioner was
of a most Btrouuous typo and ho was
credited with effectually stopping tho
pollco. bla"kinai of saloonkoei or.
Prosidont McKlnloy appointed Mr.
Roosovelt assistant secretary of tho
nav which office ho roslgnel at tho
outbreak of hostilities with Spain. Re
turning to tho Bud Lands, Mr. Rooso
velt organized his famous regiment of
Rough ridors for sorvlco in Cuba.
Tho history of Roosevolt und his fa
mous roglmont of Rough riders dur
ing tho Santiago campaign is well re
memborod. Roturning to tiio United
Stntos nftor tho campaign was over,
Col. Roosevolt found himself already
talkod of for tho Republican gubor
national nomination of Now York. Ho
was nominated and olected governor
over Augustus Van Wyck, tho Demo
cratic candldato by 17,780 votes.
From tho governor's chair to tho
vJco prcsldonoy was but a step, al
though an unwilling one, for Mr.

The Cause of Many
There is n disease prevailing In this
country most dangerous because so decep
deaths are caused
by it heart dis
heart failure or
apoplexy arc often
the result of kid
ney disease. If
kidney trouble is
MJcv ed blood will at
tack the vital organs, causing catarrh of
the bladder, or the kidneys themselves
break down and waste away cell by cell.
Biadder troubles almost always result
from a derangement of the kidneys and
a cure is obtained quickest by a proper
treatment of the kidneys. If you are feel
ing badly you can make no mistake by
taking Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the
great kidney, liver and bladder remedy.
It corrects inability to hold urine and
scalding pain in passing it, and over
comes that unpleasant necessity of being
compelled to go often through the day,
and to get up many times during the
night. The mild and the extraordinary
effect of Swamp-Root is soon realized.
It stands the highest for its wonderful
cures of the most distressing cases.
Swamp-Root is pleasant to take and is
sold by all druggists in fifty-cent and
one-dollar size bottles. You may have a
sample bottle of this wonderful new dis
covery and a book that tells all about it,
both sent free by mail. Address, Dr. Kil
mer & Co., Binghamton, N. Y. When
writing mention reading this generous
offer m this paper. Don't make any
mistake, but remember the name, Swamp
Root, Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, and the
address, Binghamton, N. Y., on every
Roosevolt. Ho was nominated at
Philadelphia Juno 21, 1900, for the
second highest office in the gift of the
people. Mr. Roosovelt, it is said, was
unwilling to have his name presented
to tho convention, declaring that he
did not desire the nomination. There
was a great popular demand for his'
nomination, however, and ho finally
yielded!. Ho had served but IJIttle
more than 6 months as vice president
when the assassination of President
McKInley resulted in his elevation to
tho oxecutlve chair.
Tho wife of President Roosevelt
was Miss Edith Kormlt Carew. The
President has G children. The eldest,
Miss Alice, Is now twenty years old.
The others- are Theodore Roosevelt,
Jr., now 16; Kermlt, aged 14; Ethel,
12 years old; Archibald, -nine; and
Qulntln, six. The President has been
married twice, Miss Alice being tho
child of his first wife, who was Miss
Alice Lee of Boston. 1

Very Annoying to Some People.
Pooplo that aro known to bo weak
and sickly, by their neighbors, aro
asked Jho. question every day whether
they aro feeling bettor. Do you feel
stronger? Are you gaining llosh?
Thoir friends know if they aro gain

of returning health. If they can only
get a remedy that will make .solid
flesh, rocovory Is ascured. People
with nervous troubles, loss of flesh and
strength, no ambition, languid, and
always tired, have thin watery blcod.
The food they eat does not nourish
thorn, it docs not make blood. If

' Old Machine Shattered.
On Monday the entire force arrived
and the old guard machine was rout
ed. Talk to one of them today, and
you get a meela statement that Cor
telyou will be chairman, and that
they are for him. They have heard
from the little fellow who represents
the district, and who are direct from
the people. They find a mighty sen
timent among the mass of Republi
cans In favor of Roosevolt. The last

national committee by new men in
