sin, a part of Minnesota, Illinois,
Indiana and Ohio was known as
the Northwest territory. Aftor
Ohio was set off as a separate
state the Lowor Peninsula of
3 Michigan was joined to Indiana
territory. In 1805 Michigan be
came a separate torrltory with
about Its present boundaries.
Tboro was, however, a great
disputo over a small strip of
land In the extremo southern
portion which waa claimed by
Ohio. This almost led to blood
shed, but was tinnily settled by
Michigan releasing her claim to
the disputed area sod receiving
ns compensation an addition to
the Upper Peninsula. On this
basis Michigan wns admitted to
the Union In 1887 and boonun
the twenty-sixth state.
Michigan has a unique situa

is made thal in 101 I tho hanks in
fhai Slate had ot) deposit the sum ol'
$42,000,000. These hanks are now
holding $81,000.000. Il is safe lo
lAVfumo that a large pari of this
rooney was pul into tho banks for
Aafe-keeping by timid people to whom
oonl'tdenco has not yoi returned, and
Who nave doubtless been undergoing
?imnj deprivation, born of their de

these savings locked up won d man

Washington, Supt. 7.-It would
not bo nows to tho people in South
Carolina to Inform thom from Wash
ington now that .loo W. Tolbert, of
i\inoty-Six, was supreme dictator of
Republican patronage In tho Pal
motto State, that Information having
boon conveyed to thom some weeks
ago. Tho interesting part of tho
maller now is found, so far as Tol
bert being the big boss of South
Carolina ls concerned, in tho fact
that, hy tho wuy nominations for
Carolina olTlcos aro piling up, both
in tho way of examinations to bo
held within tho next few weeks and
by tho naming of "acting postmas
ters" at various points, tho real snag
Is to bo encountered when tho Senate
reconvenes after Its thirty-day recess
and tackles the Job of confirming the
Tolbert and Harding selections.
While no one is heing herein quot
ed for obvious reasons, enough ls
known to make it more than plain
that not hy any means will all of
the aforesaid Tolbert-llarding nomi
nees gol hy, unless present signs
fail, and there is not much chance
of that.
As stated hoforo, interesting de
velopments are rumored to he in
sight over tho Slate. Tolbert, of
course, is "hoss"' so far as the rcc
mending of post?nico candidates goes,
hut Ibero is the big. over-prosenl
Se?alo of the United states to he mel
and reckoned with.
it is Invariably a rule that no man
will he confirmed when a Senator of
tin1 State where the nomination is
lo bc made objects "Senatorial cour
tesy" is supremo just here and al
ways has been, and will continue to
Prom present indications the next
month or two will see some pretty
tights over the patronage matters in
tho Senate-of course not all from
South Carolina, hat form various
sections of the South.
Meantime. Tolbert is "doss." and
what ho says about these postoffices
goes here.

Washington, Sept. S.-Tho hard
worked Representative Volstead and
the lobby of the Anti-Saloon League
find that ibero is still work for will

A loophole has been discovered In

not exceed a certain limit in pre
scribing liquor for internal use, not
a thing was said regarding external
As a result it is seriously argued
that wore a physician to reach the
conclusion that his patient needed
a bath of whiskey, he could prescribe
lt, and the druggist would be forced
to furnish enough whiskey to fill a
spacious tub.
Such conditions, according to the
Anti-Saloon League, could not bo tol

"Health is the greatest thing in the

1 could hardly go at alt.
"I was just no account for work. I
would get a bucket of water and would I
feel so weak I would have to set it down j
before I felt like ! could lift it to the shelf, j
In this condition, ot course, to do even
my housework was a task almost im-1
possible to accomplish. ;
