"Whilo tho practices reforicd to in the Hollowing artlclo wits novor followed in Allen county, tho county comnilb sionors havo power to inauuriito tho Kjustotn and at sotno futuro date tho decision may bo of local importance and interest. Tho Topeka Capital says: Tho United Stutes Supreuip itiurt has uphold tho constitutionality ol tho law paB&od by tho Legislature in ltf!)l -authorizing counties to bid in lauds which aro sold for non-paymoui of taxes. The decision was handed down in tho ease brought against C. A. Parkor, tho treasurer of I ti-no county, and tho county commissioners, b L. A. Bigger. Tho question involved "wa9 whether tho county could bid in all lands sold fo'r taxes and excludo all other bidders. Tho plalntilT contended that this law was contrary to tho constitution of this stato and of tho United States, for tho stato and of tho United States, for tho reason thnt it abolished com 'petltlvo bidders by enabling tho county 'treasurer to bid In tho wliolo tract, 'when, in fact, a pub'le sale of tho isniso to tho highest bidded might have resulted In a sulo of a portion of tho tract to satisfy tho whole amount of tho tax duo thereon; that such u pro ceoding was a taking of property with out due process of law. On tho other hand, tho county con tended that thcro Is no constitutional limitation, either slate or national, upon tho power of a Legislature in tho fixing of a mode for tho collection of taxes; that tho Legislature has tho power to provide for an absoluto for feiture of lands for tho non-payment of taxes duo thereon, or a competitive -sale of tho same, as It scos lit, the mode of collection being wholly with in tho discretion of tho Legislature Tho action was an original proceed ing in mandamus commenced by Mr. Bigger against Mr. Ilykor and tho board of county commissioners of Reno county, Kansas, to oxecuto and 'deliver to him tax sale certificates for tho north half of each and overy tract of land sold for taxes for tlio year 1809, in accordanco with a bid made by him on tho dato of salo to tho county treasurer under tho provisions of the old law. Tho Supromo court of the stato of Kansas sustained the po sition the county took and rendered a decision declaring the law to bo con stitutional. An appeal was taken by tho plaintiff, Mr. Blggor, to tho Supremo court of tho United States, resulting, as above stated, in a de cision in favor of Reno county. Tho decision is ono of groat importance to a great number of countios In tho state that aro and have been operating under this law. Something New In (ir.H Laws. The RnotSTEH Is In receiptor a copy ofthoMnnioe, Ind., Times, contain ing a marked article of (interest. Tt. BPnins ihnt tho sunrcmo court of Indiana has mado a ruling that if a .gas company collects lor gun ior mm and lights and for any reason fails to supply gns tho consumer may col lect a rebate. Acting on this cuo Bert Cusmlrc, an old Iola hoy, has secured claims from dllferont consumers who have had to uso coal and wood sinco 1895 at different times, amounting to $20,000. Ho estimates that thero aro 4,000 peoplo entitled to this robate, tho minimum claim being S40 and tho maimum $140. Ho has hired three good lawyers for $2,000 to bring a test case and If ho wins and gets his com mission agreed Ion of :t5 per cent ho will clean up about $10,000. This is an interesting ruling for Kansas gas towns and particularly so in Iola because an old Iola boy Is en gineering tho test caso. Attachment for SliO,(KM Another stop was dovoloped in tho 'Crouch-Baumhoff feud Saturday when Crouch attached tho stock of Mr. Baumhotl in tho Iola Kloctrlc Hallway as security for tho payment pf his claim against BaumhotT now ponding In court. It will be romembored that some time ago Crouch brought suit for tho work ho did in getting tho lino built tho amount of tho suit being a llttlo loss than $2,000. BaumhoiT denied tho liability and tho time was set for hoar ing in district court. Mr. Baumholl holds $60,000 worth of stock in tho railway and sent it hero to have new stock Issued in liou of the old stock. Whllo this htock was in town the sher iff attached it on papers gotten out by Mr. Crouch's attornoy. Ho Recommends Chamberlain's Cough Itemedy. "I havo used Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for a number of years and havo no hesitancy In saying that it Is tho host remedy for coughs, colds and croup I havo over used in my family I-havo not words to oxpress my confi dence in this remody.

"Tho dlllercneo between union and scab labor," says Samuel Gompers, Is: "Tho non-union man bargains for his work at tlio factory door, und tho needs of tho poorest and ineanost among thonumber is tho basis of tho pay for tho cntlro force. Tho union man bargains for his wugo in tho of llco of his employor, and tho average demands, averago hopes and average conception of the rights of his follow cmploycs aro mado tho basis on which tho work of tho entire number Is calculated." Tiinpowr.uor lahoii T.ho following letter from a work inflnian was printed recently In tho San Francisco Star. "I b-eliovo that orgnnled labor, when thoroughly organized and unit ed on a jost demand, wielding tho strike and the boycott, can carry tho day. Witness the numerous conces tlons to, and settlements with, organ ized labor within tho past ye-r. At hi9t workmen aro beginning to learn tho Importance of niuWlng ati Injury to ono craft tlio common catiso of of feuco to all. Tho employers think to stand olT this organization by combi ing amongthejusulvcs. Butthelreoinhl nutlon Is of uo account if the labor supply Is cut oii. Hence the efforts -more or less successful of labor lead ers to corral tho upply. " Tho contest bstween capital and labor hu often been narrowed down to tho issue in tho light between the llevil and Fin McCoul, In tho Irish mythology. 'A hungry belly will drive you buck to work,' says capital, with tho dovll. 'Tho toughest hide holds longest,' says labor, witLi Fin McCoul. And labor has tho toujyhost hide, as had tho great Fin. It io-a great mls tako to suppose that the ordinary run of worklngmon yearn forfork. unless they have big families. They hear the order to knock olT work without reluctance.

In the larger cities there has been a marked increase in diseases affecting the organs of respiration, which increase is attributed to the prevalence of influ enza. Persons who are recovering from grip or influenza ore in a weak condition and peculiarly liable to pulmonary dis ease. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery cures coughs, bronchitis, lung "trouble" and other diseases of the organs of res piration. It is the best tonic medicine for those whose strength and vitality have been exhausted by an attack of grip. It purifies the blood, cleansing it of the poisonous accumulations which breed and feed disease. It gives increased ac tivity to the blood-making glands, and so increases the supply of pure blood, rich with the red corpuscles of health. "A word for your 'Golden Mcdlc.il Diwov--ry," writes Mm, It A. Homier, of Hectic, Coshocton Co., Ohio. "We liac been iisIiir It in a family medicine for more tlinu four years. Aft n couch remedy add blood -purifier there is nothing better, and nftcr lmlng the crip Dr. l'icrce's Rolden Medical l)lcovery Is just the right medicine for a complete braciug up " Accept no substitute for "Golden Med ical Discovery.
