Scberk, the millionaire pork packer, of Wheeling, whose Wife, Laura Farcswortb Scbeok, wm tried for atteaapting to poisou him. baa been granted an absolute divorce from ber, alosg with the custody of Iheir two children. Furthermore, Mr. Bchenk will not have to pay bis divorced wife any alimony, which, if ?II thin/* I hat, be said of ker are true, ia bntjust and proper. W? have been informed that Mr. W. T.

If we are to judge by the divorcee the* are being granted these days, it woald appear that money and happi ness don't go together. Th?re is hardly a day that you pick up a newspaper without an account of a divorce proceeding therein, and al most invariably the marital troubles that are aired, belong to the rich. Of cou'flo we don't mean to say that the poor have no troubles, but nnlo?s appearances are deceptive, theirs are smell as ccmpared with those of the licb. Th-* Senate contiuues to fritier away time, the bono of contention being the Presidency, and a moH unteemly and ridicnloua scramble baa been tbe r?*mlt. .This ehould not be, nod if tbuj voters of this Stale u?e their power wisely, nevor will there be n duplication of tbe scones enact ed in Charleston durin? tbe legisla tures of 1911 and 1913.

Ingratitude and freebnese baa deprived Chain of bis liberty, and bo has no one to blame for hit predica ment but biasslf. Others who are under parole should tako warning from tbe case of Chain, and see that they don't get whers he Is, Governor CaUmtn Bleess, tbe notorious chief executive of South Carolina, is at it , ?g*iu .

WHERE THE PEOPLE SAT. | The legislature of Nebraska is largely Democratic, but ysBterday the legislature elected George W. Norris, Republican, to reprasont it in the United States senate. Nibroeka ia a progressive state in which the people ore psrmilled to say whom tbey want in the iflnate. The Democratic legislature would have much preferred to elect ono of their own political faith, but a state law provides for a senatorial primary, and Id last year's primary the voters of Nebraska Indicated a preference for Mr. Norris. The sasmbers of the legislature were pledged to sup port the primary choice, giving the law (he same effect as if it provided for direct popular election of United States Senators. While the Republicata profited by the senatorial primary ia Nobraska, the Democrats profited by a similar law io another western state a few daye ago, when the sonditions were reversed and a D mocrat waa uaop posed for seaator in a Republican legislature. West Virginia has no such pro gressive l?w on its statate booke; if it had there would probably be mora attention paid ju.*t now to the busi ness of the legislature and less to politics. Ttie selection of a senator would have beon made by the people! long ego, aod there would be nothing left for the lawmaker* to do but to ratify the popular choice. ? WhecliDg Register.

Prepared mediciDe is simply one phase of Ibo standardizing proceee which is going on io all ltnea of industry; aad the public is growing better and better informed in regard to health and the means of securing and maintaining, it. People knoYf- more about them eeltee, their bodies and functions, than they erer did before; and vrhy they are eick if they becorno so. Prepared medicioe ba? standardized the treatment for a large proportion of the ordinary ailments and common ills. So that people do not feel the need of calling in a dootor to tell whit ia tbe matter with them wben they already know,or te-charge them two dollars for a preicription whan, the same or a better one already compounded and rsady for use can be bad for less than half tLe money.
