We have no axe to grind in claiming
everything for our hardware. The truth
is beat at all times, and that's the truth.
We oarry nothing but first-class hardware
and draw the hardware Hue at Al. If you
boy any artiole second grade, don't let it
be hardware. Poor hardware is one of
the best things in the world not to have
around you. Be generous and let some
body else have all there is of it. That is
our polio; and we find it pays. It will
pay you to adopt our hardware platform.
Every article we oarry is true and genuine
as steel.

Washington, Oct. 1. Th president has
commuted to imprisonment for life the
death sentence imposed upon Clyde Mat
tox, of Kansas. This is the case in
which the prisoner's mother, after appeal
ing .personally to the president, secured
a letter assuring her that the death sen
tence would not be carried out.
Mattox was convicted of killing an old
colored man, John Mullen, who was seek

convicted and sentenoed to be hanged iu
Kansas in 1891, gained a new trial from
the U. S. supreme court, and after two
more trials was again convioted and re

Another appeal was taken to the U. S.
supreme court and this time the
Judgment was amrmed and the convict
wbr sentenced to be hanged on October
11, of this year. As a last resort an ap
peal was made to the president.
In his indorsement the president said:
"It is with muoh hesitation that I can
show any measure of clemency in this
oase, inasmuch as I do not regard this
oonviot as entitled to any sympathy be
cause of his former life or the testimony
taken in the trial. I have ooncluded,
however, after anxious and perplexing
consideration of all the facts presented
to me, to save the convict from the death
awaiting him under sentence of the conrt,
and at the same time effectively proteot
society in future against his vicious pro
pensities by directing his imprisonment
during life. I am constrained to this
conrso simply because I can not shut out
the fear that certain testimony offered
upon his trial, and exoluded by the oourt,
and which a strong minority of the su
preme court held should have been re
oeived, might, if admitted, have produced
a result more favorable to the convict and
probably have averted bis sentence of

Key West, Fla., Oot. 1. Great exoite
ment and indignation prevails here by a
report that marines from the Spanish
cruiser, Conde de Venadito, have landed
on the Florida Keys, to searoh for flli

The keys belong to Florida, and if Spain
has a right to land searching parties on
the keys it also has a right to land ma
rines on the mainland. The insult is con
sidered to be as outrageous as if the Con
de de Venadito had landed a searohhig
party to searoh the homes of citizens of
Key West. The stats department at
Washington will be asked to investigate
and demand an apology from Spain for
ths Indignity.
