Y7ATERBURY 'EVENING DEMOCRAT, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 189o
What Shall D Do? Is the earnest, almost agonizing cry ol Treak, tired, nervous women, and crowded, overworked, straggling men. Slight dif ficulties, ordinary cares, household work or daily labor, magnify themselves into seemingly impassable mountains. This is simply because the nerves are weak, the bodily organs debilitated, and they do not Take proper nourishment. Feed the nerves, organs and tissues on rich red blood, and how soon the glow of health comes to the pale eeks, firmness to the unsteady hand, and strength to the faltering limb. Hood5 Sarsaparilla purifies, vitalizes and enriches the blood and is thus the best friend to unfortunate humanity. Be sure to get Hood's and only Hood's.

Publish Kss To-morrow is a day set asicje for giv ing thanks. Do not forget to begin the day right. Start out by being thankful for all you have succeeded in acquiring during the year. Try to help' some other fellow to be as thankful as your self. Don't talk politics or anything that is apt to worry or annoy you. En joy the day at home and just be thankful. Remember that you should be thankful for living in such a prosper ous and peaceful community as Waterbury, the Rev ' Mr Towusend to the contrary. Be thankful that you are alive. Some people have queer ideas of what is good taste. For instance, Jorjn M. Thurston of Nebraska, whoSyaS for, years in the employ of one of the 'pacific railroads, only resigned within the past ten daj-s, although his salary as sena tor began March 4, last, and who' is said to owe his election to the United States senate to the influence of that corpora tion, pi-oposes to inaugurate his senatori al career by introducing a bill providing for the settlement of the debts due the government from the Central and Union Pacific railroads. He says that while his bill differs in detail f ronvthe settle ment recommended by the' government directors of those roads, its results will will be the same. This may be true, but when his past relations with these corporations are considered, suspicion will naturally arise that r litf Ms merely continuing to do thair bidding by intro ducing this bill. "Blocks of Five" Dudley, ex-Com. missioner of Pensions 'Dudley, is a man who has the sense of humor highly de veloped. Among the mosf humorous of the-post-election comments are- the ut terances attributed to him. According to the reports, Mr Dudley,- iu comment ing upon the election in Maryland and other states, rolled his eyes in horror over dishonest and corrupV elections as conducted under democratic auspices, lie declares the republican platform for the future must be free, lair honest elec tions, and an honest count in every state. This is the same Dudley who disbursed the corruption fund which carried Indi ana in 1SS8 for Harrison, and who massed his corrupt voters in "blocks of five." Xow that he has become a reformer, he should move to ew York, New Haven, Waterbury, Philadelphia or Pittsburg. The reform business is not a thriving one in Indiana. He would make a barrel cf money if he would deliver a few lectures on the purity of the ballot in the national contests of 137G and&SS', . : . . ' . CURRENT COMMENT. "Little Billee, Chandler would be amusiug if he were not so, impertinent. The arrival of Japanese drummers in the United States is no joke.

One of the Noblest Figures and Greatest Warriors In Indian History. One of the noblest figures in Indian history and one of the greatest warriors is the Nez Perce Chief Joseph. Kf this same year, 1877, he had resisted at tempts to put him and his hand on the Lapwai reservation - in western Idaho and had sought to carry all his people hundreds of miles to Canada. Ho out ran the farce that General Howard had on his trail, escaped from Big Hole, where General Gibbon fought him, and again, from General Sturgis,who en gaged him in the Yellowstone valley. Sturgis had been sent out by Miles, and when the latter, on the evening of Sept. 1 9, heard what had occurred, he started the same night with all the available force of the Tongue river cantonment to head off Chief Joseph before he should reach the border. Hard marching brought the command, on the last day of the month, to Jo seph's village in the Bear Paw moun tains. The heroic attack was resisted with a valor as heroic, and in a short time Captain Hale, Lieutenant Biddle and 22 soldiers were killed and 4 offi cers and 88 soldiers wounded, among them being Lieutenant Baird of the general's staff. One gallant charge by Captain Carter, with a small body of Fifth infantry, had cost over a third of his command. 'Promptly varying hia plans, therefore, and adapting them to the situation, the general moved up his artillery, and disposed the troops so as to hold the Indians under siege, with escape impossible. On the sixth day Chief Joseph ad vanced to surrender. It was a scene for a painter, a typical scene in American history, when this noble looking war rior, facing General Miles, a worthy counterpart in mien and bearing, hand ed his rifle to his white conqueror, and with impressive dignity pointed to the snn in the heavens, saying, "From where the sun now stands, I fight no more." General Miles, in announcing the victory, used the terse, significant phrase, "We have had our usual sucL cess." His full report described his brave adversaries as "the boldest men and best marksmen of any Indians I have ever encountered," and Chief Jo soph as "a man of more sagacity and intelligence than any Indian I have ever met." George E. Pond in Mc Clure's Magazine. STEVENSON'S STYLE. We Was No Mere Epigram Turner or Pyro technist In Expression. Brilliant as were Stevenson's powers of thought and word, he was no epi gram turner, no pyrotechnist in idea or expression. A clear and 'coherent train of thought runs through his most spar kling chapters ; in its elucidation every phrase plays an indispensable role, and the garment of style fits the thought so closely that, although each sentence is in itself a work of art, none exists for itself, hut all for the sake of the gener al effect of the whole. Singularly oxoellent is this whole as a medium fcr tho transference of thought; impeccably lucid and limpid, translating all shades of perception, sensation and emotion with such ease and preciseness that the reader scarcely remembers he is absorbing the thought L of another. But even this rare merit does not necessarily imply great charm of style. To achieve the highest kind of charm, of beauty, the ear must be en chanted while the mind is definitely and delicately led. If "you do not possess an ear for the music of prose (which has nothing at all to do with the ear for music proper and is different even from an ear for verse, and a good deal less common), no one can make you understand the ex traordinary beauty of Stevenson's work. But if you do possess this organ you will rate him, as an artist, at least as high as any poet. The essentials of good poetic form, with its organized meas ure and accentuation and often its de termined rhymes, are symmetry and balance, diversified uniformity, varied repetition, echoing assonance and reso nance. The essentials of good prose form are a graceful symmetry, a discreet avoidance of actual in favor of suggest ed balance, harmony in perpetual diver sity, no obvious repetitions or echoings and yet in every phrase a recognition of the form and color of all accompanying phrases. Thus a more subtle, if not a higher technical sense, goes to the mak ing of very good prose than of even very eood poetry : there are no formulas or rules to give assurance or warning, no signal cries determined upon in advance and thereafter loudly audible as helpers of a doubting ear. "Robert Louis Ste venson and His Writings," by Mrs. M. Q. Van Rensselaer, in Century. An Arctic Rhinoceros. A gigantic specimen of the arctio rhinoceros has lately been discovered frozen up in an iceberg which stranded at the Lena delta. This specimen was seven feet taller than the largest variety of tho rhinoceros of today and was armed with two nose horns, the shortest of which was 3 feet 2 inches in length. The animal doubtless belonged to an antediluvian species of rhinoceros, and his immense size gives some idea of the enormous and terrible beasts which in habited this planet in the "days when the earth was yoang. " The creature's body was entirely covered with very long, thick hair, which proves that tha arctic regions were his natural habitat. St. Louis Republic. Xiichtning. The curious fact has been observed that while buildings generally are more liable to accidents from lightning during; the first half of the year than during the last, barns form an exception to this rule. In attempting to account for this it has been suggested that a fall barn is warmer than an empty one aad that the heated and somewhat moist air rising from the straw or hay is more conductive than cooler air and "ex tracts" lightning. uaack Beyers Getting the Benefit DurCiuit Prices oh Hem's Getting the style, getting the fit they want, getting man ufacturers prices on a single suit.
