Denecn to the Senate, and Congressman Smith to the Gover natorial chair to succeed Governor Low den, insures the latter of a complete vic tory in securing a solid delegation from Illinois in 1920 to the National Con vention. Without attempting-to say all that could be said in praise of "Ex-Governor Chas. S. Deneen and Congressman Smith, or to belittle in any sense the splendid men that may oppose them, one must take into consideration the fact that these men would not tie up with someone who had no chances for suc cess in the National Convention, or who were weak as candidates at home Congressman McKInley will no doubt command a strong following among the Republicans . of the State who believe that the. emutTes of the situation de mands Hot- one if .the senators from Illinois come from outside of Chicago.

Smith's superiority over Fred Sterling or Attorney-General Brundagc or Govcrnatorial honors, yet all must admit that he took hold of the Republican helm in 1918 and redeemed by his matchless management, the state completely from the Democrats and showed a capability of being as good a vote getter as the present State Treas urer, Fred Sterling, who is conceded by all to be the best in the business, while Attorney-General Brundagc has demon strated a capacity to work at executive detail that removes all doubt concern ing his ability to serve as Chief Execu tive of the state- No doubt time will tell and will have mnch to do with the candidates that will get the nomination from the list men tioned, but little, if anynrisiake can be made.

Taylor Continues to Rapidly Improve from Pneumonia; She Was Snatched from the Jaws of Death by Dr. Walter N. Thomas, Who Is One of the Best and Most Progressive Doctors in This City. Wednesday morning, October 15th, at about 8 o'clock, we called our good wife, Mrs. Taylor the dutiful and and faithful wife of our youth and informed her that it was time to get up .and prepare us some breakfast. She feebly informed us that she spent a .wretched night and that she felt ever so miserable that cold chills had been running up and down her body, for several weeks. Prior to that time she had been taking medicine for a severe cold and only a few day ttcforc that time a doctor had ex amined her and claimed that she wouhl soon lie free of her cold, so we continued to pour his medicine into her from Wednesday 'morning until Sunday morning, October 19th. all the lime she seemed to be grow ing worse aHd much weaker instead of better. Then we put our foot right down ami called the doctor on the phone, who had been attending her and firm ly informed him that wc did not need I his services any longer that if we owed him anything that all that he had to do was to forward his bill and that he would receive his money by return mail. Then and there wc call ed up Dr. Walter X. Thomas, who is one of our warm friends and it was almost six o'clock that same Sun day evening before he droxc up in front of our humble little home and after he had examined Mrs. Taylor, lie informed us that she had the pneu monia of the right lung, that she had a fever which at that very moment registered one .hundred and three that it had been raging within her for the past three or four day. that nine chances were against her to one m her favor. That information almost caused us to stagger and fall, but in a few mo ments we braced up and rushed to the drug store for some new medi cine which seemed to be strong and very powerful and when it was ready we t.rtcd on a dead run home with it. It was then about 8 o'clock and onr next door neighbor, Mrs. E. Morcau.had already assisted us to make Mrs. Taylor more comfortable in bed. Then we informed her that she had better retire to her home and that if we needed her during the night we would tap on the window and from 8 o'clock Sunday evening wc sat silent and alone by her bed side until monday morning, without closing onr eyes for one minute, giv ing her her medicine right on the dot.

Repre sentatives from all parts of the coun try will be present at the inaugura tion ?nd are to take part in the dis cussions of the Congress.

Smith, graduate nurse of Provident Hospital, a a visiting nurse was on hand to assist in every way she could to make her feel better and rest bctpr. Thursday afternoon, October 23, ohc of our steadfast lady friends, whose name will be withheld at the present time arrived at our home and like a good angel of mercy not fo money but for 'pure love she waited on Mrs. Taylor who at that time was nothing more than a helpless little child and that dear and loyal friend remained from Thursday noon unttl Friday noon. Thursday evening when Dr. Thom as arrived wc asked him if he though' that it would he advisable to call tn another doctor and consult with him in relation to the condition of Mrs. Taylor. He replied that if we felt that wc wanted to call in another doctor that it would be alright with him, hut that Mrs. Taylor was re ceiving the best medical attention and otherwise that any human being could receive. . Then wc looked him right square in the eye and said, "Dr. Thomas, we do not want you to fool hs hut we want you to tell us the absolute tru.ii as to Mrs. Taylor's condition." And he said, "Mr. Taylor, if your wife can hold on to life for the next 12 or 24 hours she will pull through otherwise the end is in sight, that her age was against her and that all that we could do was to continue to wait on her well, give her plenty of medicine, hot whisky toddy and from 6 o'clock Thursday evening un til 6 o'clock Friday morning, wc were right by her bedside. .Our lady friend being near unto us and every time that Mrs. Taylor would take a long, slow breath, as though it was her last, our heart would stand still, for a few moments it was really the death watch p( her sickness evcrytime that the clock would toll off the hours wc would credit them up to her chances of recovering. (To be continued.) several subjects outlined above. It is expected that out of the Congress will grow the formulation of a program looking to the just settlement of the problems of reconstruction that re late particularly to the Negro, as in deed all the problems of reconstruc tion, more or less, of necessity include him.
