' A special from Cincinnati says: Pro- lc verbially and truthfully, when history has nothing etee to do it goes back and repeats itself, in whole or in part, a previous incident or achievement. „ Washington McLean, father of the B Democratic candidate for (iovernoi oi Sl Ohio, was a Warwick in politics, but 0 at the same time a businessman of n rare aptitude v As far as it goes, this description fits v his distinguished son to the letter, f, John R. McLean in essentially a bu.-ti- -j ness man, competent to lead half a dozen important tnteioiises at once, „ aud make a success of all. He pos- 0 setses an educated and trained bnei c uefcs iustinc, schooled in experience , aud verified by a score of sdnual tri c umptis. i The anxiety with which thecountry , looks forward to tbe outcutne of the „ Ohio taction, as an eveut which will x determine some features of the nation- c al campaign in 1900, mak>s everything t rela'ing to it of lively interest. En i tbusiasm in this city is already up to j a high point for McLean. 1 A fact which speaks volumes in his t favor is that his employes in Cincinnati 1 and elsewhere are his strongest parti t sans, regardless of mere party bias. It s is a well known fact that at least half | of the force on the Enquirer are Re- l publicans.

All farmers should carefully sell ct tbe grain seed that is to be used for spring sowing. It is not enough that the seed b.i free from weeds, although this, of course, is essential. Bejond this, however, paius should be taken to wiu uow out all the light, shrunken stuff, with about as strong a blast as the fanning uaili is capable of producing The d ff.-rerjce in the yield between plump and t-hruuken seed is much treater than is g-nerally Imagined. In one experiment with sptiftg wheat, coutiuued for five year-, it was fouud that plump, selecttd seed trave an in creased y:eld of 23 per cent, by ineas ure and an iucreaee of ti 4 pounds in weight per measurtd bu>liel over shrunken seed. This is a difference worth taking a great deal of pains in order that the fanner may have it In his favor. In a four lears' test of baiely, conducted along timilar lines, plump Srfid give an incie-8"d \ield of 19 per cent, ovt-i i-hriiukt v strain. As. the shrunken grain is mainly caused by weakstraw, rust and the like, there the further advantage attending the selection of plump seed, that these faults, weaknesses and diseases are less likely to propagate. On every account, therefore, it will pay the farmer to blow out of his seed grain everything that a blast will remove. Shrunken grain is a great deal better as a food for poultry or for stock than it is put In the ground for reproductive pur poses. Beauty Is Blood Deep. Clean blood means a clean skin. No beauty without it. Cascarets, Candy Cathar tic clean your blood and keep it clean, by stirring up the lazy liver and driving all im purities from the body.
