The PLAIN DEALER Supplement Contains the following articles which should have the attention of every reader in the county, regardless of party predilections: Governor Boies Cherokee Speech. New York Prohibition after 50 years in Maine, Breckenridge on the Tariff State Register "Burn your Com" articles. Comment of leading Republican ptipers on Prohibition. Reasons of M. C. Woodruff, late editor of the republican Dubuque Times for favoring the election of Boies. Every one of these articles are per tinent to the public interests and Aould be carefully read and oon aidered. The Committee having charge of the Columbian Exposition has adopt ed the following by a vote of 41 to 16. It was introduced by Commissioner Harris. After its adoption at the subsequent meeting the member from Minnesota sought to reconsider •nd expunge it from the record be eause of the damage it would inflict 0b the republicans this fall, but fail ed So this is what is to be asked: Resolved, That the president of this commission appoint a committee, Without compensation, to prepare a petition asking congress to modify the present tariff laws so as to make them less onerous to World's Fair ex hibitors.'' Gov. Boies has appointed Dr. Ed ward Hornibrooke a member of the board of trustees of the Insane at In dtpendence iu place of John L. Whit ley, resigned, and W. S. Wilson of Sheldon to be director of the State Formal school to succeed Prof. E. G. Cooley, resigned. Both appoint ments are first class in all respects. Sr. Hornibrooke is a prominent physician who has made a special study of mental diseases, and Prof. Wilson is a graduate of the North* Western Normal school of Pennsylva nia, and has done efficient education al work in lowa. Secretary Foster thinks the wise lirmers will sell and the foolish ones Will hold their wheat. The fanners, Wise and foolish, will mind their own business. Mr. Secretary should fol low suit. For instanoe, where is that treasury statement which was due Aug. It The Best Advertising. The most efficient advertising in be half of Hood's Sarsaparilla is that which comes from the medicine itself. That is, those who are cured by it, speak to friends suffering similarly, who in turn derive benefit and urge others to try this successful medicine. Thus the circle of its popularity is rapidly widening from this cause alone, and more and more are becom ing enthusiastic in behalf of Hood's Sarsaparilla as it actually demon strates its absolute merit. All that is asked for Hood's Sarsaparilla is that it be given a fair trial. If you need a good blood purifier, or building up medicine, try Hood's Sartaparilla. In "Blocks of Five." Candidate Wheeler has finally writ ten a "confidential" letter of accept ance. Instead of discussing the is sues of the campaign he asks the names of five persons in each town ship who can be "fixed." The letter was in the form of a secret circular intended only for the eye of the per son addressed and was to be returned to the writer with the answer upon the back. Some of the persons re ceiving were so difegusted with its contents that it was given out to the Democratic press instead of being re turned to Mr. Wheeler with the in formation sought. We ask the voters of this county to scan every word of this precious document and ask your selves if you can afford to give your support to a candidate for governor who will resort to such tactics to se cure an election. Read this letter carefully.: "HIRAM C. WHKKLER, JOHN STBW AIIDSON, Superintendent. Imported Percheron and Shire Stal lions. Largest Importation of Draft Hor ses to America this Season.

Note.—The democratic press has assailed me for several weeks. Please note on the back of blank No. 1 what effect if any it has had in your town ship. Confidential Andrew Jackson on Bank Money. Andrew Jackson on retiring from the Presidency, in his farewell ad dress devoted considerable space to the old United States bank, every word of which applies to the greater danger from the national banking system now in use. The United States bank which so ex cited the fear of president Jackson had a capital of $35,000,000, and con sisted of a single institution. Now the country has over three thousand national banks, several of which have a capital fund nearly three times as large as that of the old U. S. bank, which that old patriot deemed so full of danger to our government and its institutions. We commend his words to democrats every where as containing the very elements of truth and soberness, and one crime charged to the United States bank but has been the common practice ot the present system. Here are his words: "The result of the ill-advised legis lation which established this great monopoly was to concentrate the whole moneyed power of the Union, with boundless means of corruption and its numerous dependents, under the direction and command of one acknowledged head thus organizing this particular interest as one body, and enabling it to bring forward up on any occasion its entire strength to support or defeat any measure of gov ernment. In the hands of this for midable power, thus perfectly organ ized, was also placed unlimited domi nion over the amount of the circula ting medium, giving it the power to regulate the value of property and the fruits of labor." I have been a great sufferer from catarrh for over ten years had it very bad, could hardly breathe. Some nights I could not sleep and had to walk the floor. 1 purchased Ely's Cream Balm and am using it freely, it is working a cure surely. I have advised several friends to use it, and with happy results.in every case. It is the medicine above all others for catarrh, and it is worth its weight in gold. 1 thank God I have found a remedy I can use .with safety and that does all that is claimed for it. It is curing my deafness.—B. W.Sperry, Hartford, Conn. 49t2 We uuderstand Truman Robison of this place will be a candidate before the republican county convention for the office of county supervisor.
