TO REPUBLICANS: We are anxious to have every Republican in close touch, and work ngin harmony with the Republican National Congressional Committee in 'avor of the election of a Republican Congress. The Congressional campaign must be based on the administrative and legislative record of the party, and, that being so, Theodore Roosevelt's personality must be a central figure ind his achievements a central Ihought in the campaign. We desire to maintain the work of Ibis campaign with popular subscrip tions of One Dollar each from Repub licans. To each subscriber we will Send the Republican National Cam paign Text Book and all documents Issued by the Committee. Help us achieve a great victory, James S. Sherman, Chairman. P. O. Box 2063, New York, GOOD ROADS AND RURAL MAILS. It is announced that the government will look more carefully to the en forcement of its rule regarding the roads over which rural free delivery is established. The present require ment Is: "Roads- traversed shall be kept in good condition, and unob structed by gates; there must be no unbridged creeks or streams not ford able at- any season of the j-ear." In many , cases the residents along pro posed r routes have made improve- ments that enable them to obtain ru ral free delivery service, but some times the efforts to keep up the roads are relaxed. But the government has decided that unless the roads traveled by the carrier are properly maintain ed 'the service will be withdrawn. The post -office department now calls on the carriers for reports on the roads and will stop the service where the highways in question are bad. The 23,973 ? Tural delivery carriers now employed cover S63.063 miles dally ,and it is unreasonable to ex pect them to contend with neglected roads, or to w-orkWS$ communities lacking the enter; keep its common highway vl decent shape. Wherever a route Is discontinued the inhabitants themselves will be to blame for it, for if alive to their own interests and their duty to the public they would give their roads- vigorous and constant attention. The idea that a route once authorized is neces sarily permanent is a mistake. Ad vice on the best road methods is sup plied by the agricultural department, and a neighborhood that loses its rural free delivery must itself bear the dis credit for so unpleasant and humiliat--g an event.

MORE SHOCKS FELT IN STRICKEN CITY New Vibrations Cause Rain to Fall, Increasing Suffering of Tenters. ADDITIONAL DAMAGE DONE A SERIOUS EPIDEMIC Is t-rfKELY IF RAIN CONTINUES MUCH LONGER SEVEN HUNDRED CORPSES FOUND. Publishers PressJ valparau. ..--.. -. ihero were two slight earth shocks here Thurs day night. Rain began falling again, increasing the sufferings of thousands who are living in tents. Many sought refuge in houses whose walls are in a danererous state of ruin. It is be- lieved that if the rain continues much longer a serious epidemic is sure to break out About 10,000 workmen are employ ed in clearing away the ruins here, and In searching for bodies of those who lost their lives during the recent earthquakes and fires. In the wreck age of a house workmen found a child alive in a barrel which had protected it from harm. About 700 corpses have been buri2d. At least 150 robbers have been shot. The naval school is to be recon structed, and it is expected that the cadets will be able to resume their studies there in about two months. The sale of articles of food is strictly supervised by the city ana government officials to prevent any abuses in the direction of increases in prices. Merchants detected in the act of selling food above the fixed Drices are compelled to close their stores. In different parts of the city depots for the distribution of food have been established, the main features of which are Immense caldrons from which, under the supervision of young women of highest society of Val paraiso, soup is distributed to the poor. ' J In addition to the sums of money received here f roih various parts or I Chile for the relief of the earthquake sufferers, $35,000 has been received from San Francisco, Cal. The govern- ment of Chile in reply to cable mes sages received from Chileans abroad offering to collect funds for the relief of the sufferers, has thanked them, but has not given them any authoriza tion to collect money in the name of the government, as Chile has suffi cient resources to dire for the home less. The warship Almirante Cochrane arrived at Talcahuana. province of Concepcion, with a large number of homeless people from Valparaiso on board. A committee of prominent wo- men took charge of the refugees, pro- viding them with food and clothing. The garrisons in the southern part of Chile continue sending detach- ments of troops here to assist in maintaining order. Suggestions have been made that the site of Valparaiso be changed, but President-elect Montt declared that the idea of rebuilding Valparaiso at some other point on the coast was not feasible, that in his opinion the buildings should be reconstructed on which the ruins now stand.

Washington, Aug. 24. When asked about the rumor that he was about to purchase government bonds, the fours of 1907, Secretary Shaw said: "Evi dently somebody is trying to deceive the thoughtless. Every man with a lick of financial sense recognizes that occasion for relief does not exist. It seems strange that rumors should be so persistent that I am going to do a thing, the doing or which at this time wrould be universally recognized as uncalled for. If subsequent condi tions demand action, I will act in such a way as I deem best at the time, but all rumors will be baseless. xThere will be no tips and no advance in formation."

Boyd, after a very brief illness, passed from this life July 24, 1900. Even? in childhood her superior qualities of mind "and heart wero recognized tiy others besides the immediate fanjily. As she ma tured and develop!, her engaging traits became so pronounced that all who came near wojo drawn in love to her. From the beginning her habit was studious, ani her rank in the classes of the highest. She graduat ed from the Iligbf School with signal honors, then continued her studies at Earlham Collegf. Afterward she graduated in the Chautauqua course, having given it f-onscientious appli cation. There wajs not wanting the finish of foreign ftravel a tour of Europe being madV under very favor ing conditions. Ii the palmy days of the History Class.fivhen that gifted in structor, Mrs. M&ttie Curl Dennis, was directing its? researches, Miss Louise Boyd "was! her chosen and competent assistant. Several years fwere devoted to teaching in the ciqr schools, and with marked success. Ko desirable quali fication, either asto attainments or disposition was waiting, and she was much valued. J A few years ago she suffered ser iously from a fall, and that injury was followed by another of most pain ful and disabling character. .She en dured her bitter fate with that pat ience so characteristic of her lovable nature, when, by & continuation of mischances it became necessary to learn another profession, the brave girl set in anew to ifago the battle of life on strange fieljls. She won in this endeavor also, Sand had at the last particularly desirable prospects in view an outlook that shed upon her later months a biioyant hope and joy.

Many iearts are soref for the going of thisj gentle, true, lo ing friend. So trustworthy was she, o prudent, so sympathetic, her place Jcannot well be filled.
