XTp to this time It appears that no ody has thought to ask Thomas B. IReed hour he will vote. Texas may Beem to get more than Its Bhare of disaster, but It must ha re tnembered. that Texas la a large state. The cumber of Americans at the (Paris exposition does not seem to have greatly affected the, registration, la this country. The only national candidate who has thought It worth while to visit Boston flurlng the campaign is John G. "Woolley. tha fcead of the Prohibition ticket. Unlike other candidates the candidate far the presidency is under no necessity of voting for himself. He merely votes for the electors on his party ticket The Democratic managers are positive that MeKinley will not he elected, and the Republican managers are equally confident that Bryan will not win. This leaves It up to Debs or "Woolley. On three occasions California has di vided her electoral vote. In 180 the vote stood, five Democrats and one Re publican, in 1S92 eight Democrats and one Republican, in 1896 eight Republi cans and one Democrat New Tork World: Ex-C?overnor Leedy f Kansas, who has started In business as an agent for a patent medicine, points to his two years In the governorship at S3. 000 a year as an illustration that "a man can't make a business of being gov ernor." Yet we believe there Is no in stance of a governorship going vacant for lack of candidates to fill It Philadelphia Record: By means of a duty of 20 cents a gallon the linseed oil trust has been enabled to make an other advanca of 7 cents a gallon In the price of the article which it manu factures. If this duty should be re pealed It would not be In the power of the trust to put this additional tax upon the consumers of an article chiefly used In the preparation of paint. Competi tion from abroad would then come to redress the balance in favor of consum ers. : "Worcester Spy: There will be more than a hundred million barrels of apples harvested this year in the United States. That Is a goodly amount. It means pies and puddings and dumplings. Neither MeKinley nor Bryan were re sponsible for thie wealth. We have ap ples to burn this year. Politics may affect the acreage of wheat, corn and to bacco. The peach crop depends on the veracity of New Jersey statesmen and Delaware reporters, but the good, hon est old apple crop that comes every presidential year Is brought on like the sunshine to cheer -as all. Greater New Tork probably will poll a larger vote than any one of thirty r.lne Btates November S. The total reg istration for 1900 In Greater New Tork Is 848.154. Deducting the usual average percentage of registered electors who fail to cast a ballot it is found that the probable vote In the city November will be 698,000. This total was ex ceeded by six states only In 1896: Illi nois with 1.090.891; Indiana, 37.119; Mis souri, 71.019; New Tork. 1.424,135; Ohio, 1.015,293; and Pennsylvania, 1,194.355. Only three other states cast a total vote In 1R9S at all approaching the vote to be expected in Greater New Tork this year, namely, Iowa. 541.547: Michigan, 644.762. and Texas. 526.692. These totals are so far below the anticipated figures for Greater New Toft that it Is not likely the increase of the last four years will bring them up to the city's ag gregate. Chicago Record: It appears very prob able that one Interesting feature of the campaign will be a largely increased vote of some of the smaller parties, both the Prohibitionists and the Socialist Labor parties profiting. The lack of any pronounced enthusiasm in the campaign has been favorable to these parties, and both have been making especial efforts. Pour years ago, for instance, the Social ists polled but 36.274 votes. This year the leaders of the party are counting upon a vote of 200,000, and possibly much more than that. The position which they have taken is radical, and as it practically assumes that there is little choice between the two leading parties it appears by no means certain that the defections due to the Socialist vote will come altogether from one party. The Socialists, In fact, having set themselves to secure an official ballot in as many states as possible and to poll a vote which must compel consider ation of the Socialist propaganda by both people and politicians, have been working to some purpose. No one need be surprised if the aggregate vote of the smaller parties on election day is found to be one of the most noteworthy fa&turea of the eleoUoa. PRICES LOWEB AND HIGHER. A remarkable fall in the prices of manufactures in nearly all of the great classes is shown by the official figures of the treasury bureau of statistics pre pared for the current number of the Monthly Summary and by recent issues of Dun's and Bradstreet's. Comparing prlcss at the beginning of the present month with those at the beginning of the present year a fall of from 10 per cent to 40 per cent is shown. Tin plate shows a reduction of 24 per cent on Oc tober 1, 1900, as compared with January 1, 1900; refined petroleum, 21 per cent; common window glass, 12 per cent; wire nails, 30 per cent; barbed wire, 26 per cent; Bessemer pig Iron, 46 per cent; steel rails, 26 per cent; yellow pine lum ber, 14 per cent; sisal rope, 3S per cent; Manila rope, 32 per cent; leather, 10 per cent; shoes of various grades, from 7 per cent to 10 per cent; woolen dress goods of various grades, from 5 per cent to 12 per cent. The prices of leading articles of man ufacture and farm production are regu larly gathered by the bureau of statis tics for publication in its monthly Sum mary of Commerce and Finance, and it is from this and from the publications of Bradstreet's, Dun's Review, The Iron Age. and the Cincinnati Price Current that the figures given herewith are ob tained. "While nearly all of the figures relating to manufactured articles show a reduc tion on October 1, 1900, as compared with January 1. 1300, nearly all figures on prices of farm products show an ad vance during the same time. Corn shows an advance from 39c per bushel on January 1st to 48c on October 1st; wheat, from 78. 8c per bushel on January 1st to 79.7c on October 1st; barley, from 45c per bushel on January 1st, to 59c October 1st; hogs, from $4.50 per 100 pounds on January 1st, to $5.30 on Oc tober 1st; cotton, from 7 ll-16c per pound on January 1st, to 10.8c on October 1st; cotton seed, from $12 per ton on January 1st, to $17.35 per ton October 1st GLOBE SIGHTS. From the Atchison Globe. 1 "When you have a tooth that needs pulling, you are up against the real thing. When a woman has money, people never think the men pay her attention because of real love. An Atchison man recently traveled a thousand miles to attend a meeting of his college society. "When a man meets you with the question: "Well, how are things go ing?" pass him up. He is going to talk politics. What has become of the old fashion ed man who admitted during a political campaign that "there are mean men on both sides?" An Atchison woman who announced a big party, has given it up, because she found she would be compelled to in vite a woman she didn't want An Atchison man who married an Atchison girl some time ago, didn't like her kin. and has moved. There it Is again: kin loses us a good citizen. The man who says he doesn't mind having a tooth pulled, is the sort of man who will cross the ocean, and say when he comes home that he wasn't seasick. "When we are finally "saved." we want the job to be done by an old man who has spent a long and creditable life in the ministry, and not by a "boy preacher." "When people say they will do any thing in the world for you, they mean about as much as a candidate when he Bays his ambition is to serve his country and his countrymen. A woman has been begging In Atchi son lately, claiming that her husband is an "invalid." It has been discovered that he is a loafer, but It's about the same thing, so far as the woman is con cerned. "When a girl gets married, how soon thereafter should her sisters begin visiting her? An Atchison man lately married an out of town girl, and three days after the couple returned home, the bride's sister arrived for a visit. The Atchison Kin Association sent her home: it was too soon. POINTED PARAGRAPHS. From the Chicago News. A man is a mister: a woman is a mystery. The richer a man's food the poorer his appetite. The ice man's bill la the blow that cracks the joke. Feathered bipeds of similar plumage congregate gregariously. "What a woman says goes when she talks into a telephone receiver. No man is capable of ruling others who is unable to rule himself. The woman who never sheds a tear on account of a man doesn't love him. Unfortunately the chronic bore never leaves a hole In his victim's memory. The only objection the average man has to hard money is that it is hard to get. If some fools were to remain silent they might acquire reputations for wis dom. Some one has said that a policeman is never around when wanted, but many a man has found out otherwise to his sorrow. QUAKER REFLECTIONS. From the Philadelphia Record. The sharp man is addicted to pointed remarks. The successful clairvoyant Is an ad vertising medium. "When a poet falls in love with a girl it ia natural that he should run tometre. No, Maude, dear, when a vessel has been docked, it isn't the ship's surgeon who docked her. i "When one pugilist says he knows an- other pugilist like a book he must mean a scrap book. The clerk who oversleeps himself may not be interested In politics, but he often runs for his office. Blobbs "Microbes seem to be respon sible for everything nowadays." Slobbs "That's right. Even some of the fires are caused by firebugs." Sillicus 'The reason women are talk ative is because they tell all they know." Cynicus "Humph! That wouldn't make some women talkative." INSANITCCAUSES Few People Go Crazy From Dis appointment In Lore. Ill Health Leads According to Offlciai Report. DIL UHLS EXPLAINS IT. Leavenworth Furnished Great est Number at Osawatomie. Superintendent Wants Many Im provements Made. Why do people go crazy? That question Is answered by the report of the superin tendent of the Osawatomie asylum. Contrary to the prevailing belief very few people become insane from disap pointment in love. Ill hea'th leads with the greatest per centage, while heredity is a close second. Next comes intemperance. The lowest of all is disappointment of love, while next above is cigarettes. The property of the state insane asylum at Osawatomie is valued at $650,000. The Institution contains 1,027 patients; 601 males and 526 females. There were dur ing the past two years 236 deaths: 98 were discharged restored, the percentage of those restored under treatment at the asylum, during the last year being 24. Since the asvlum at Osawatomie has been established 4.939 patients have been admitted. reath has come to 1,302 and 1,5."0 have been discharged as cured. The patients and employes make a total of 1,200 people at the institution and the biennial report filed with the governor contains this statement by the superin tendent: A comparison will show that, no town of 1.2'0 people in the state has so few people confined to their beds as we have here. The general health is good. - Numerous improvements have been made at Osawatomie during the past two years. Roads and walks have been im proved; new steam pumps, filters, water heaters, painting both buildings and roofs. 12. 000 black baws have been, put in the ponds on the farm and other property im provements have been added. The superintendent of the asylum wants the staLe to bore for gas to supply the Institution: he asks for a cold storage plant: more land, a canning factory, for which the following appropx-iations are recommended: To bore for gas $ 2.000 For ice and cold storage plant 6,0n0 To purchase additional lands 10.00) For canning factory 300 Finishing basement war;! 4,W Standp'pe for watt rworks system.... 3.000 To complete detached hospital build ing 25,000 This makes a total of $53,000, which the institution will ask for through the board of charities at the next session of the leg islature. L. L. Uhls. the superintendent, does not forget to suggest that the salaries of sup erintendents of asylums should be raised and calls attention to the fact that the superintendent of a similar institution in an adjoining state receives exactly, per annum, the amount representing the com bined salaries of the two Kansas super intendents. Since the Osawatomie asylum was es tablished 40 inmates have escaped and were dropped from the records. Fortv four were found to be not insane and were restored to their families. These cases were generally ones of persecution in which disagreeable relations were dis posed of. Causes of insanity as reported by the asylum authorities are as follows: Disappointment in love 2 Cigarettes f; Family troubles ; 15 Heredity 42 Accident n Intemperance 39 111 health f,s Religious excitement 16 Illinois and Indiana have furnished the greatest number of patients for this asy lum.

Census Returns Grouped and Classified. Washington, Oct 26. The census bu reau in a bulletin just issued summar izes the returns of population of cities having 25,000 inhabitants or more in 1900, the individual census of each of these cities having been officially announced heretofore. There are 159 of these, and the bulletin shows that the per centag of increase in their population from 1890 to 1900 was 32.5. as against 49.6 for the same cities in the previous decade. The absolute increase in the population of these cities from 1890 to 1900 was 4. 839.136, or 82,426 less than the absolute increase from 1880 to 1890, when it was 4,921,562. The 159 cities combined have a population in 1900 of 19.694.625, against 14.855.480 in 1890. and 9,933,927 in 1880. Of these 159 cities divided into four classes, 19 has 200,000 and over. 1!) had 100,000 and under 200,000, 40 had 50,000 and un der 100,000, and 81 had 25,000 and under 50.000. In 1880 there were but 20 cities which contained more than 100,000 inhabitants, btit in 1S90 this number had increased to 28 .and in 1900 to 38. In 1900 there are 78 cities of 50.000 in habitants or more as compared with 58 in 1SS0 and 35 in 1880. The combined population in 1900, of the 19 cities of the first class is 11,795.809 as against a population in 1S90 of 8.879, 105, representing an increase during the ten years of 2.916,804. or 32.8 per cent. The same cities showed an increase from 1880 to 1890 of 2,567,452, or 40.6 per cent The 19 cities of the first class com- If your liver is out of order, causing Biliousness, Sick Headache, Heart burn, or Constipation, take a dose of pass On retiring, and tomorrow your di gestive organs will be regulated anc you will be bright, active and readj for any kind of work.

New York, under the act of consolida tion which became effective January 1, 1898, has grown to be a city of nearly 3,500,000 inhabitants in 1900, as compared with a population for what was former ly New Tork city of a little more than 1.500,000 in 1890, and substantially 1,200, 000 in 1880. The population of the terri tory now comprised within the present limits of New York was approximately 2.500,000 in 1890 and 1,400,000 in 1880. It is the premier city of the country in point of population, a position which it has uniformly held at each decennial cen sus since and including 1790. Chicago, with practically 1.700.000 in habitants and Philadelphia with not quite 1,300.000 inhabitants hold the second and third places in 1900, the same as in 1890, although at the census of 180 their posi tions were reversed, Philadelphia then having nearly 850,000 inhabitants as com pared with not much more than 500,000 for Chicago. St. Louis, Boston and Baltimore, the next largest cities, have not changed their relative positions in 1890. Cleveland and Buffalo have both increased materially in population during the last ten years and now take precedence over San Francisco and Cincinnati, which in 1S90 were in the seventh and eighth places in point of pop ulation. Pittsburg also shows a large in crease in population since 1890 and is now the eleventh largest city In the country, having exchanged places with New Or leans. Among the most notable changes in the rank of cities which have taken place in 1900, as compared with 1880, may be men tioned that of Seattle, which has ad vanced from the 150th to the 4Sth place; Los Angeles, from the 135th to the 3'ith place; Luluth, from the 150th to the 72nd place: Kansas City, Kan., from th 153rd to the 76th place, and Portland, Ore., from tne lustn to tne cma place, inner notice able changes In rank from 1880 to 1900 are Tacoma, from 155 to 103 and Spokano from 157 to 106. The following named states and territor ies in 1900 do not contain any city with a population of 25,000 or more: Arizona, Idaho, Indian Territory, Mis sissippi, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, N rth Dakota. Ok.ah ma, South Dakota, Vermont and Wyoming. Of the whole number of cities having 25 000 Inhabitants or more in 1!0, seventy are found in the north Atlantic division, forty-eight in the north central division, eighteen in the south central division, twelve in the western division, and eleven in the South Atlantic division. Massachusetts has the largest number of such cities, namely, twenty and Is fol lowed by Pennsylvania, with eighteen and New York with twelve. The most signi ficant growth of cities is that for the three cities in the state of Washington, namely S-aitle, Spokane and Tacoma. These ihree cities combined had only 4,9al inhabitants in 1S80, but their population had increased to 98.765 in 1S90 and to 155.233 in 1900, the increase during the past decade being equivalent to 57.1 per cent Nebraska is the only state in which the combined population of the Cities con tained therein shows a decrease from 1890 to 1900. Of the total population represented by the 159 cities in 1900 (19,694.625) 10,308,695 or 51.3 per cent, is contained in the seventy cities situated In the north Atlantic divi sion and 6,071. 861, or 30.8 per cent in the forty-eight cities situated in the north central division, leaving only 3.d24,06.S, or 17.9 per cent, for the remaining cities sit uated in the other three geographical divisions.

STREETS THRONGED. BigCrowds Turn Out to Roose velt Meeting at Syracuse. Syracuse, N. T., Oct 26. The closing speeches of an arduous day in the Roose velt campaign were made at Auburn and Syracuse, after Jumps through widely divergent counties. Altogether it was a favorable day, because while iu Auburn and Syracuse there were several inter ruptions, the questions and answers were rather in a good-natured form, and there was no friction which in dicated a desire on either the part of the questioner or answerer to enter into a personal controversy. Syracuse itself was a blaze of light while thousands of people thronged the streets. The auditorium where the speechmaking was held, and the square where the outside meeting took place, were both much too small to accommo date those who desired to hear Governor Roosevelt. In Auburn three meetings had to be held to accommodate the people. It was at this place that the first serious in terruption of the day occurred. The governor had started at the first meet ing on an exposition of the trust ques tion. During his remarks a man in the upper gallery cried out: "Hurrah for Bryan." "Why?" retorted the governor, squar ing himself toward the place from whence the cry came and pausing for a reply, which was not made. "He does not know," said the gov ernor smiling. "It means Just about that grade of Intelligence." The governor said referring to the ADVICE TO MOTHERS. This Information "Will Prove Boon to Topeka Mothers- If a Juvenile member of your family lacks control over the kidney secretions at night do not scold or whip the child.

Here is proof for To peka mothers: Mrs. Fred Danek, of 615 West First street, says: "I talce pleasure in recom mending such an effective remedy as Doan's Kidney Pills. My boy, seven years old, suffered from kidney weakness for three years or more, having no con trol over the kidney Becretions whatever. This was very noticeable and annoying at night, and various remedies I gave him had no effect. Nothing reached hi3 case until I got a box of Doan's Kidney Pills at Rowley & Snow's drug store. I noticed their beneficial results in a short time and a continuation of the treatment soon completely cured him. They are a grand remedy and I cannot say too much in their praise."

Pa Suits, $12 to $25 Overcoats, $10 to $30 Tomorrow W Knox question of expansion: "In this city Mr. Bryan actually dared to appeal to the memory of Seward. 1 wonder well, I don't wonder at Mr. Bryan, but under any other conditions I should wonder at any man making that appeal, and forgetting that one of the greatest serv ices that Mr. Seward rendered to this country was when under his guidance this country expanded over Alaska, and it expanded without the consent of ,the governed there " "How about Metcalf?" came an in terruption. "Metcalf?" said the governor in a puzzled tone. Then remembering that Mr. Metcalf was president of the D. M. Osborne machine shops, and had threat ened to shut down if Mr. Bryan was elected, he said: "Metcalf is all riRht. If Mr. Bryan was half as right he would be fortunate." "How about the canals?" came from the gallery before the governor could proceed. "I will answer you once for all," said the governor. "Do you mean in this etate?" "Yes," same the reply back. "I answer," said the governor, "that they are administered with absolute honesty and ftliciency, as you know, if ou know anything about them." At Syracuse the governor was first driven to a ptand erected on the square in front of the Welling opera house, in which he was to speak later. The crowd was so dense that it was only with the utmost difficulty the police could open a way sufficiently wide for his carriage to pass through. When the governor got on the stand the crowd surged up against it with irresistible force, and it was not until the governor himself in duced those in the rear to crowd the other was that the chush was somewhat abated. "I don't care whom you are going to vote for for president," said the governor; "don't hurt the women and children. You know in America we are especially proud of the way a crowd behaves itself, and I want you to show a good example here. "I want in the first Instance," con tinued Mr. Roosevelt, "to express my thanks to the members of the Syracuse police department for the courtesy and efficiency they have shown. I want to thank them and therefore the Demo cratic municipal authorities for the care they have taken to see that there should be no disorder, no improper conduct. "Now I have to go in and speak in the hall and I only want to say that I am Immensely impressed by this wonderful outpouring." The governor's party and the police then formed themselves into what 'a football player would call a flying wedge and succeeded in reaching the hall. The governor talked for an hour, touching most of the lpsues involved but dwelling particularly on trusts and mil itary matters. He addressed his audience mostly on the same lines as he has speken before on these issues. In speak ing of the trust question he said in part: "Now, there is a trust here In New Tork the ice trust. I have no question but that the great bulk of the people who have gone into the ice trust went in as investors, just as they would in any other corporation whose shares were floated on the market. "What I want to call attention to and to emphasize is the utter insincerity, the base hypocrisy of men like Mr. Croker who denounce trusts in general in far more sweeping terms than I because I intend to make my words good by deeds when the time comes who de nounce trusts as an unmitigated evil and then- become the most prominent stockholders in a trust that has caused more indignation than any other in this state.
