A peaceful solution of the Chinese Question had become so Imminent that Prussia was forced to throw off her dis guise. If Sir Thomas Lipton will now turn his attention to beans, he will get the town of Boston completely under his thumb. Sir Thomas Upton spent a lot of money tfyingr to get the America's cup. but he made it all back on America's Iiog. Senator Hanna has gone into the pro phecy business himself and declares there will be a panic ten years long if Bryan shall be elected. We are In a fair way to get a corner on the world's supply of gold. Our fin enciers are capturing that ef Europe while our soldiers are taking in that cf China. St. Louis Post-Dispatch: If some of ficeholders exerted themselves as much for their city, slate or country as they do for their party, what an improvement ve Ehould see in human government. It is hardly fair for members of our jjarty to recall the predictions made by the other side four years previous. No body attaches any importance to elec tion forecasts at the time they are made. It must have been like a cold shower fcath to Mr. Bryan to come from the revest, where Bryanism, Populism and other issues are very warm, into frosty Ohio! Worcester Spy. The above probably was written be fore the Ohio returns were all In. Philadelphia Record: In the great ag ricultural state of Indiana the country vote outnumbers the city vote by two to one, and hence the pleas of spellbinders find partisan campaign committees have Ibeen addressed especially to the farm ers. For 28 years past the vote of the Hoosier state has alternated between the two leading parties at presidential elections, and this year it is the opposi tion's turn. Trust or anti-trust is the chief issue presented in Indiana, with the agriculturist vote as arbiter of the ftuestion. Under such conditions it is scarcely surprising that both parties f hould confidently claim the state, or that the outcome should be shrouded in obscurity. The "man with the hoe" us ually wails until election day to stand up and be counted. TACTS ABOUT TRUSTS X. From the N. Y. World. It is with a shout of joy that the Na tional Steel company, of Youngstown, O.. announces that it has sent out a train of forty cars loaded with 1.000 tons cf steel rails destined for New Zealand. What a stirring spectacle! And what a deep and fervid joy the incident must lhave wrought in the hearts of the rail road managers who are forced to buy American steel rails! The shipment of this 1,000 tons of lYoungstown, rails to New Zealand proves that American rails can compete In price with English rails. Why then Is the tariff tax of $7.S4 a ton main tained? In order that the powerful com bination known as the steel-rail pool may be enabled to make an abnormal rrofit on its product. Steel rails can be manufactured In this country for $17.50 a ton. Adding to this the tariff tax, J7.S4, we have J25.34 as the price which may be charged if IKnglish rails cannot be landed for less than the cost of domestic rails plus the cluty. As a matter of fact the pool is c harging $26 in the domestic market and is getting what price it can for rails for export. The 1,000 tons which left lYoungstown may have cost the New pealanders anywhere from $6 to $4 less than the list price for rails for domestic Use. As 1.000 tons of rails can be sold at a . profit In this country for $18,000. every pale of such an amount at the "list price of $26,000 Is a gift made by the tariff Jaw to the steel-rail makers of $3,000 taken from the railroads. The rails that go to New Zealand and other foreign countries are evidence of the fact that protection is not needed fcy the steel-rail industry. Incidentally It is also evidence that its wealth is largely due to the tariff. THAT STRANGE UNREST. From the Washington Post. For more than a quarter of a century, or since the abnormal conditions crea ted by the civil war disappeared, the American people have refused to re elect any president who offered himself as a candidate for their suffrage. More than this, two of the most important etates in the union. New York and Indi ana, have alternated in presidential years in their majorities. In other states enormous majorities hare been reversed in the short space of 24 months, Tiotably when Illinois went Republican in ISM by 1C3,000 after having given ita electoral vote to Cleveland in 1S92 by over 26,000 majority. In New Jersey, too, the S7.000 majority by which McKin ley secured the state in IS'.rj almost en tirely disappeared in 1898 ,and today the tate is regarded as doubtful. From the standpoint of purely practical politics the warning to the Republican mana gers from these figures is that no reli ance is to be placed upon the majorities which McKlnley obtained four years ago. Excessive and unusual as these majorities were, they can be experience proves that they have been swept aside without apparent reason. They are not infallible guides. But beyond all this, the results of the elections during the past 20 years demonstrate the existence of a feeling of strange unrest among the people. Harrison's defeat in 1S92 has never been accounted for on logical grounds. It was the result of an inex plicable desire for a change. Swayed by causes which the political philosopher has not yet fathomed and which certain ly no one has attempted to explain, the pendulum of public sentiment . swings backward and forward. There is no sat isfactory reason offered today why the administration of President McKinley should be rebuked. It has been marked by a wonderful degree of prosperity; it has been glorified by victories on land and sea; it has seen the territory of the nation expanded in every direction. And yet, viewed in the light of past elections, no one can confidently assert today that the people will render a verdict of ap proval. Unquestionably this would seem to be the outcome of the campaign, but equally true Is it that the restlessness of the American people has not entirely disappeared. If the desire for a change which has been so emphatically mani fested in the past is still uppermost in the American mind, the 6th of next No vember will be an eventful day. GLOBE S1GHI3. From the Atchison Globe. The fault found with a bachelor doesn't hurt. You can build a little lack of atten tion into an imaginary wrong if you want to. . Take out a life insurance policy, and leave a full dinner pail for your wife's next husband. When a baby arrives in this world, a book should come with it, giving in structions for its management. "We have an idea that disease germs have less dislike of carbolic acid than they have of the smell of cabbage. The men really don't know any thing about the terrors of a. mother-in-law: it is the daughter-in-law who is best posted. There should be less worrying about what the "unseen has in store," and more care of the health to be able to do the work it brings to every one. Now that the weather is so glorious that men are glad they are alive, the women are beginning to make mince meat to cause them to wish they were dead. Why do men go into saloons, and in sist on buying each other whisky? They never go into dry goods stores, and insist on buying socks for each other. Before the breath has fairly left a woman's body, the neighbors are say ing that she would have recovered if her husband had become scared soon enough. When women get a few wafers and a little very mild cheese together, and call it a "Dutch lunch," the men long to step outside a few minutes while they laugh. In every household there is as much complaint of articles lost in the wash, as if the route from the tub to the ironing board is a mysterious and dan gerous one to travel. Some years ago a citizen of Atchison bought a handsome victoria, and rode up street in it once, behind a liveried coachman. So much fuss was made that the victoria was sold: it never made but one public appearance. Mrs. Lysander John Appleton made mince meat yesterday, putting twenty seven different ingredients in it. The previous record had been held by a woman who put in thirteen different things. There is every reason to fear that Lysander .John will furnish the foundation to a daisy bed in the ceme tery by spring. One of the troubles in every news paper office is the amateur entertain ment. Everyone who takes part in an amateur entertainment believes he is very clever, of course, or he wouldn't take part, and it is difficult to satisfy him. If amateurs are praised, the people complain, so that any way you fix it, editors are meaner than ever after every amateur show. POINTED PARAGRAPH 3 From the Chicago News. The maiden band of hope is a hus band. No man ever flatters the woman he truly loves. The error of a moment may become the sorrow of a lifetime. The front parlor is the most popular of all court rooms. There are no flies on Father Time. He Is always on the fly. The most effective blows are delivered in the guise of kind words. To the youth in love there are but jjrf Ffofl f tl E This root of many evils Glandular tumcfrs, abscesses, pimples and other cutaneous eruptions, sore ears, inflamed eyelids, rickets, dyspep sia, catarrh, readiness to catch cold and inability to get rid of it easily, pale ness, nervousness and other ailments including the consumptive tendency Can be completely and permanently removed, no matter how young or old the sufferer. Hood's Sarsaparills was given the dauehter of Silas Vernooy, Wawarsinsr. N. Y., who had broken out with scrofula sores all over her face and head. Th first bottle helped her and when she had taken six the sores were all healed and her faca was smooth. He writes that she has never shown any lira of th scrofula returning. ilcssl'a Sssisngsssrilln Promises to cure and keeps the promise. Ask your druggist for It today and accept no substitute. FOR MANY YEARS Physicians Have Been Seeking a Reliable Pile Cure- For years physicians have experi mented in vain, seeking a remedy which would effectually cure piles and similar rectal troubles without resorting to surgical operations. Many salves, ointments and other remedies were found to give only tem porary relief but none could be depended upon to make a lasting, satisfactory cure. Within the past few years however a remedy called the Pyramid Pile Cure, has been repeatedly tested in hundreds of cases and, with highly satisfactory results. The first effect of this remedy is to In stantly remove the pain and irritation and from that time on the cure rapidly progresses and before the patient is hardly aware of it he is entirely cured. The Pyramid Pile Cure seems to act directly upon the nerves and blood ves sels of the parts affected as it comes into direct contact with them and sets up a healthy action which in a perfectly natural way reduces the swelling and in llammation. The Pyramid Pile Cure performs the cure without pain or inconvenience to the sufferer and is justly considered one of the most meritorious discoveries of modern medicine. Piles is a most annoying and often times dangerous disease with which hu manity is afflicted. If neglected it frs ciuently develops into fistula or some fatal or incurable rectal trouble, whereas by the timely use of this simple but effective remedy no one need suffer a single day from any form of piles. The Pyramid Pile Cure is perfectly harmless, contains no mineral poison, opiate or dangerous drug of any kind. It is in suppository form composed of emollient oils and astringents, and is ap plied at night and absorbed into the parts affected during sleep. Druggists everywhere sell full sized treatments of the Pyramid Pile Cure at 50 cents per package. The uniform success of the remedy has made it the most popular and best known of any form of treatment for piles. two places in the world one where his sweetheart is and the other where she isn't. All are not hunters who blow their horns some are trolley parties. A rural editor refers to his mothef-in-law as the "queen of terrors." There is a fast difference between the lay of a poet and the lay of a pullet. Women are always in quest of some thing but a conquest seems to suit them best. Nothing is made in vain except the extremely fashionable girl she is maiden vain. A shiftless fellow says it is a consola tion to know that he cannot be eued for the debt of nature. No woman ever Idolizes a man unless she is self-deceived into thinking him much better than he really is. A St. Louis girl ate half a wedding cake and retired to dream of her future husband. Next morning she declared she would rather live and die an old maid than marry the man she saw in her dreams. QUAKER REFLECTIONS. From the Philadelphia Record. It isn't right to pay left-handed com pliments. The widow's life is cot always choked with weeds. The musical conductor of a theatrical troupe is always the leading man. Blobbs "Your wife seems to think a lot of her sofa cushions." Slobba "Yes; I'm not in it there." The height of ill-breeding, according to accepted social standards, must be to listen to the music at the opera. "There is nothing in life quite so ob scure," says the Chronic Bachelor, "as the husband of a successful woman." No, Maude, dear, when a person wishes to take lessons on the cornet it isn't nec essary to engage a private tutor. Almost any woman can talk her hus band into buying her a $25 hat, and yet some idiot once started the rumor that talk is cheap. Hoax "He's making rapid strides in his profession." Joax "What ihis pro fession?" Hoax "He takes part to six days walking matches." Muggins "I was at Bjones' chafing dish party last night. He's not much of a success as a cook." Bugglns "Oh, I don't know. I've heard that when he gets home at 3 a. m.. and his wife is waiting up for him. he can cook up a story that would make your hair curl." "Here Is an article," remarked the star boarder, looking up from his paper, "about a miser who had hidden away three pints of gold." "I thought gold usually came in quartz," snickered the fellow who had just paid his board bill, and thus felt himself to be a privileged character. A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, A joke by any other" name would be as old, A flea by any other name would be as fleet. And ice by any other name would be as cold. When it comes to society, the best is not always the cheapest. A man can't be closemouthed when he sits in the dentist's chair. It's peculiar that the better a man gets on in the world the better he's oft. Pawnbrokers may be an obnoxious class, but we've got to put up with them. The young woman who proposes mar riage is only trying to make a name lor herself. Strange as It may seem, just as soon as people get into society they expect to get asked out. The business man who doesn't adver tise gets more dust on his goods than he does in his money drawer. Patient "Great Scott, doctor! this bill is enormous. I'll have to starve if I pay it." Physician "That's all right, my dear sir; dieting is just what you need." Tommy "Pop, what's a spellbinder?" Tommy s Pop "A spellbinder, my son, is a person who is hired by campaign managers to fill the workingman's din ner pail with promises." Hoax "Do you believe in the Dar winian theory?" Joax "Yes; in all but one particular." Hoax "What is that?" Joax "I think Darwin should have baaed hia deductions upon the lobster in stead of the monkey." HAVE FUN WITH HANNA. Dakota Farmers Jolly the Re publican Chairman. Aberdeen, S. D., Oct. 17. The meet ing at Aberdeen developed some lively questioning between Senator Hanna and people in the crowd which had as sembled to hear the Republican leaders. The speaking was done from a stand erected in front of the grain palace. Senator Frs'e spoke briefly, taking im perialism as his main subject, and ridi culing the issue, asking the people of South Dakota, some of whom had lost sons in the Philippines, if they feared such a thing. Senator Hanna was them introduced. ' Hello, Mark!" yelled the crowd. Mr. Hanna then proceeded to discuss the tariff. "What about the trusts?" asked some one in the crowd. "We want to know about the trusts." "Well, my friend, if you will tell me what a trust is, I'll answer your ques tion," said Mr. Hanna. No reply came. "Well, if you don't know, I'll tell you," continued Mr. Hanna. "A trust under the law and what is known as a trust in commerce is where the stock of a corporation is put into the hands of a trustee, carrying with it the voting power. Every single organization of that kind that ever had its existence in the United States has been wiped out through the action of the Sherman law, and that law was put upon the statute books of the United States by a Repub lican congress." Mr. Hanna then proceeded with his speech, but a moment later was again interrupted by a question regarding the Cleveland ship builders' association. "Say, senator, that man thinks the world is flat; don't pay any attention to bim," yelled a farmer. "All right," said Mr. Hanna with a laugn, "but I would like to stay here all day and discuss this thing. But I want to tell you that the flattest of all flatness will be. the Democratic party Lext month." Cheers for Pettigrew mingled with the cheers for McKinley and Hanna that were given as the speaker concluded. The party was then driven to the train. GAYS Oil HEARING. Continued Before United States Com missioner Shields. New York, Oct. 17. The hearing- in the proceedings to secure the removal of John F., W. T. and E. H. Gaynor and Benjamin D. Greene to the jurisdiction of the United States court in Georgia on a charge of conspiracy to defraud the government, was continued before Uni ted States Commissioner Shields today. The cross-examination of John M. Barnes, United States marshal or t southern district of Georgia, was contin ued by counsel for the defendant who asked as to the possession by witness of the jury box and the key from which the grand jury was drawn November 22, 1899. Witness said as marshal he re tained possession of the key and the box was in charge of the clerk of the court where the jury was drawn. The object of the question was to show that the jury was illegally chosen. The witness in reply to a direct ques tion said he had never given up the key of the jury box to the commissioner of jurors or the clerk of the court. The next witness, Lenon M. Erwin, deputy clerk of the United States dis trict court at Macon, testified that he received the jury box from Savannah and from which the grand jury was drawn, by express on or about Novem ber 20, 1&99. a day or two before the grand jury which found the indictment was impanelled. Witness said there had been no exami nation of the contents of the box after it had been received by him. OLD MUST GO. Fire Department Building Being Torn Down For New One.

Major Anderson Suggests One For New Year's Eve In Auditorium. Major Anderson has suggested a cen tury ball to be given on the evening of December 31, in the Auditorium, for the benefit of the seat fund. In telling about the plan Major An derson said to a State Journal reporter: "I would think that this could be made a successful venture. My idea would be to make this a social function in which all the members of the best dancing clubs in town and others could take hold of and help along. Every one who came on the floor to dance would of course be required to be in costume. Costumes patterned after the dress of people of the different cen turies would be worn by the majority of dancers, but of course there would be clowns, court jester's and others out of the ordinary to break the monotony. "A nominal admission could be charged for those who wanted to take seats in the balcony and view the scene." WILL FilEET HERE. Senate Chamber Granted For Use of United State Court. The United States circuit court will meat in Topeka in the senate chamber next month. Owing to the repairs on the government building the regular room was not avail able.

Bonebrake, chairman of the committee, that the application for the senate chamber had been granted. QUA IT APPEALS FOR AID. Asks McKinley to Help Him Out In Pennsylvania Campaign. Washington, Oct. 17. Former Senator Quay of Pennsylvania today made a personal appeal to the president for help to enable him to carry the legislature of the Keystone state for the Republi cans. Since his appointment by the gov ernor of Pennsylvania to a seat in the senate was turned down last winter, through the efforts of Mark Hanna, the Pennsylvania boss has been bitter in his denunciation of Mr. McKInley's man ager and on the outs with the adminis tration. It is therefore certain that Quay would not appeal to the president for aid unless he thought the legislature of Pennsylvania was in grave danger of being carried by the Democrats, as sisted by the anti-Quay forces. Boss Quay has been on the stump in Pennsylvania for the past two weeks. People who have been with him say that he has met with a frost everywhere he has spoken and that he has openly ad mitted that his trip has not been suc cessful. Mr. Quay asserts that the op position in his own party is responsible for this condition of affairs and his call on the president today was for the pur pose of appealing to the chief executive to interfere in the fight and to call off the dogs of war. It is reported that Mr. McKinley listened with great attention to Quay's statements, but firmly declin ed to mix up in the fight. JOEPAZEN SHOT. Zorah Card Shoots Proprietor of a Theatrical Exchange. Chicago, Oct. 17. Joe Pazen, proprie tor of the Pazen Theatrical exchange, was shot in the abdomen today by Zorah Card, an actress. Pazen was taken to the county hospital in a critical condi tion. The shooting occurred ir. Pazen's office in the presence of two or three persons. Pazen ran into an adjoining office, hold ing his stomach and calling for a doctor. Shortly after this the Card woman came in twirling the smoking revolver in her fingers. Pazen asked why she did not get away while she had a chance. "Why should I?" she replied. "I shot you in self-defense." She then gave herself up to the police. The two are thought to have quar relled over some theatrical engagement. IIEAV Y EXCURSION TRAFFIC Season's Record is Broken In Topeka Today. Kxcursion traffic, arising from the cheap tickets sold Monday, was the heaviest of the season through Topeka today. It was a cheap excursion day for all the roads and resulted in the big gest business of that kind that has been done so far.

This in true in many case but there are many other caos In which the glasses are simply a rest. The vision fs as gonl as It can be and all the glasses in the world will not make obiects any more distinct. They simply take off the strain and rest the eyes. They make it possible to read ali the evening without tiring or to work at the desk all day without causing- headache. They do the work of focussing, which the eys are obliged to do when th ghisse.i are not worn. In many cases thre is no difference whatever in the ap pearance of objects, wh ther the glasso are on or off. There I a decided difference. howe er. In the effect. If left off for an hour a Fevere hadache invariably follows. "When they tire on the eyes are cool and refreshed and the wearer never knows what headache is.

Any device for the relief of human pain is always a boon to Buffering man kind. In Buch a sense must be viewed the new method of anesthesia by inject ing cocaine solution into the spinal canal discovered by Lr. J. Leonard Corning, of this city. Although Jifteen years have elapsed since he wrote his first scientific article on the subject, It Is only within the last few months that the medical profession has carried out his FUKKestions and proved the truth of his predictions. Now it would appear the more the principle of producing this form of limited insensibility is tested the better pleased are those who are noting its resuits. For a lone time after ether and chlo roform banished agony from the operat ing table it was the aim of surgeons to discover some drug that would accom plish the main purpose in view without inducing" an unnecessarily profound nar cotism. There was always something weird and dreadful connected with the thought of being subjected to this new sleep and being so absolutely and help lessly under the control of another. Even to this day many patients have such an instinctive fearof these pewerful agents that the ordinary terrot-s of th knife sink into comparative Insignifi cance. XOspeeialy did it seem desirable that something should be found which should distinctly limit the area of induced in sensibility to the part affected and leave the brain free to think. Then came co caine to talie its place in fulfilling to a certain extent the required conditions. It was while Lr. Coining was studying and experimenting to increase the use fulness and more extended applicability of this new and valuable remedy that he conceived and demonstrated the prac ticability and comparative safety of in jecting the solution in question into the lower portion of the spinal canal. By such means he succeeded in temporarily destroying all sensitiveness in the rowis of the various nerves which have their origin in that portion of the spinal cord. As a c onsequence we now hear almost incredible stories of patients who hav watched amputations of their own limbs without the slightest consciousness of a smart or twinge, and who could scarcely realize that parts of their own bodies were being severed. Other operations of equal severity have also been performed in this newly cre ated area of anesthesia with like aston ishing results. The only thing which ap parently remains to he done. Is to extend the surface of Insensibility a safely and surely to the upper portions of th" body. This may popsibly be accomplished In time when greater experience with the use oT the solution in lh present re stricted regions of the spine shall war rant the requisite ventures in other arid more extended directions. Kven as the matter now stands there is great reason for believing that this principle of treating and preventing pain has a very promising future and a com paratively extended range of applica tion. Already It has boon so t-uccessf ully applied to the abolition of the pains of maternity that Its future use for such purpose is confidently assured. COLORADO FLYEK. Via "Great Bock Island Routs."
