The Kind You Han Always Bought
Pennsylvania Republicans to Show
Their Loyalty to the President
NOVEMBER'S VOTE TO BE A TEST
Sympathies of the National Admlnla.
tration Are Strongly With the Party
Organization In This State.
Philadelphia, Sept. 12.
Every vote cast for the Republican
ticket In Pennsylvania at the approach
Ing election will not only be a vote of
endorsement of Republican principles
but a vote of confidence in Roosevelt
as well as an additional guarantee to
the national administration that the
great Republican organization of the
Keystone State stands firmly and loy
ally by the president .
The scandalous conduct of the new
Insurgent-Democratic combine in Penn
sylvania make It essential that the
honest Republicans of the state shall
assert themselves at the next election.
A member of the Union League has
received from President Roosevelt a
personal letter which absolutely dis
poses of the rumors circulated by as
sistant Democrats In this city and state
to the effect that one or more members
of the president's cabinet will figure
in opposition to the regular Republi
While such reports would ordinarily
be regarded as too ridiculous to neces
sitate denial, the repeated announce
ments from Insurgent and Democratic
newspapers that Secretary Bonaparte
will make a speech or write a letter to
be used in the present campaign In the
Interest of the antl-Republlcan candi
dates prompted the correspondence
which brought forth the letter from the
president to one of his personal friends
in the Union League.
Roosevelt's Interest In Pennsylvania.
Not only does President Roosevelt
make It clear that Secretary Bonaparte
will not figure In the Pennsylvania
campaign, but Republicans who have
been curious about the foundation for
other stories indicating that the presi
dent's sympathies are not fully with
the regular Republican organization In
Pennsylvania are given no excuse to
be longer In doubt as to the attitude of
the federal administration on the ques
tion of loyalty to the Republican party
In the Keystone State.
President Roosevelt fully realizes
that the two Republican United States
senators and the 31 Republican mem
bers of the national house of represen
tatives from Pennsylvania have been
heartily in accord with his administra
tion, and they Intend to stand by him
in his future efforts for the develop
ment of the country's resources under
Republican policies. He also knows
that the present contest In Pennsylva
nia will have a far-reaching effect upon
the great struggle for the election of
congressmen next year.
Lines Must Not Be Broken.
"Should the Republican lines be
broken In Pennsylvania this fall dis
astrous results would surely follow In
the congressional election next year,"
declared Chairman Andrews, of the Re
publican state committee. There are
several close congressional districts In
this state, and it may require the most
strenuous work In the approaching con
gressional campaign to hold Pennsyl
vania's record of having the largest
Republican delegation of any state In
the union on the floor of the national
house of representatives.
"The great manufacturing and Indus
trial Interests of Pennsylvania which
are so dependant upon Republican su
premacy," continued Chairman An
drews "will not allow factional bicker
ings or the work of a few aspiring and
reckless Individuals to Imperil the elec
tlon by a large majority of every one of
the candidates on the Republican state
ticket next November.
"Insurgent and party wrecking or
ganizations formed to advance the per
sonal Interests of a clique of wealthy
and ambitions men cannot get a foot
hold In Republican Pennsylvania this
fall to endanger Republican success In
the great struggle of next year when
the vital Interests of the commonwealth
will be so deeply concerned."
In the Machiavellian game that Is
being played in this city to further the
Insurgent movement, former Judge
Gordon's .fine hand has been disclosed
from time to time.
In line with the circulation of re
ports that Secretary Bonaparte and
possibly other cabinet officers would be
heard from during the course of the
campaign In favor of the so-called "re
form" agitation was the attempt to
have It appear that Preslden Roosevelt
sought a conference with Mayor Wea
ver on his return visit to Wilkes-Barre.
It Is known that this much adver
tised "conference" had no political sig
nificance. The fact Is, there was no
"conference" between the president and
the mayor of Philadelphia upon any
subject. Mayor Weaver met the presi
dent as thousands of other citizens
greeted him during his visit to the coal
regions. There was not a second dur
ing their meeting at which there were
not several other persons present and
in hearing distance.
It is now declared that Mayor Wea
ver's visit to the coal regions was de
liberately planned for political pur
poses by the Gordon outfit, and that
tho speech which ho delivered to tho
delegates to the convenlon of the Cath
olic Total Abstinence Beneficial Union
was carefully prepared with a view to
advancing the interests of the men back
of the Independent campaign In this
city nnd Btate.
It has boon boldly charged and not
denied that Gordon wrote the speech
I can truthfully recommend Thomp
son's Barosma, Kidney and Liver Cure
as a fine medicine and as a cure for all
you claim for It. When I commenced
taking it I weighed 114 pounds and after
five months I weighed 130 pounds. I am
almost entirely free from rheumatism
and my general health is greatly im
proved. Susan. M Lyons, Titusville, Pa.

which Weaver made. It was a bril
liant literary effort. Weaver Is not a
good scholar, as texts of his annual
reports to councils have shown. No
one who knows him can believe he
wrote that Wllkes-Barro speech.
Tho people are beginning to under
stand the significance of the Gordon
Weaver combination and they are go
ing to vote accordingly.
Gordon represents the old Insurgent
Democratic combination that has re
cently been rehabilitated and which
is seeking to get control of the Re
publican organization In Pennsylvania,
He is using the patronage of the
Weaver administration to that end.

Probably the best nil round fruit In
Clilua Is the pomelo. It Is grown iu
tho south central and southern prov
inces nnd Is said to be the original
citrus fruit. It resembles the grape
fruit of the United States lu size, shape,
color nnd somewhat In flavor, being
sweeter than grape fruit, with less of
the bitter quality, with flesh more per
fectly separated In the sections nnd
capable of being pulled apart und sep
arated from all surroundlug sacs or
membranes. The natives cut through
the peel about one-third of the way
from the top, crimping the edge of the
taction nil the way round the fruit,
then remove the flesh, tear the section
apart, replace them In the peel und
serve thus dlvliLcd nnd prepared. The
fruit Is attractive, refreshing, whole
some nnd comparatively cheap. (5eu
crally speaking, the pomelo seems to be
a cross between a shaddock and a
good orange, but It Is more hardy than
either. It has better keeping qualities

Wardlnir Off Old Age,
A famous French geueral when ask
ed how It was that be had such an erect
carrtago replied thnt It was becnuse he
bent over and touched the floor with
his fingers thirty times every day. If
ho had acquired rigidity of the spine
so that he could not do that he would
have had with It weak abdominal mus
cles, which result lu portal congestion.
This portal congestion Interferes with
stomach digestion and with the action
of tho liver. The poison destroying
power of tl.e liver Is lessened, nuto In
toxication results, nnd arteriosclerosis

day. But by keeping the spine flexible
and the abdominal muscles strong and
taut the portal circulation Is kept free,
