Ohio In the War.
The 23rd 0. V. I. is likely to be repre
sented twice in the white house. R. B.
Hayes was the first colonel and Wm. Mc
Kinley its major. James A. Garfield was
colonel of the 42nd 0. V. I. Hayes and Gar
field became generals and McKinley
served on the staffs of Garfield, Hayes,
Crook, Hancock and Carroll.
Grant, Sherman, Sheridan, Chief Jus
tice Chase and Edwin M. Stanton, secre
tary of war, were also from Ohio. So it
will be seen that the Buckeye State has
been wonderfully favored by having her
sons occupy prominent positions at the
head of government and if nothing pre
vents she will have her full quoto until
1001 at least. Other states have had men
of recognized ability, but for some reason
they have failed to get there.
A strike amontr the employes of the
street car lines in Milwaukee, Wis., was
declared May fourth. Many citizens
joined in with the strikers to assist them
in gaining their point. A fund was
raised and a free ride in an omnibus
could be had at all hours to any part of
the city. Any member of a firm or em
ployes were forbidden to ride on the
street cars, under penalty of being boy
cotted. The progressive business men
and striker aiders soon ascertained that
it would not work. They wanted per
mission to ride on the street cars but the
strikers said, "no." Then the battle
was on between the sympathizers and
strikers. It almost paralized all branch
es of trade for several days. The street
ear company procured new men and
finally the strike was declared off, and
4(X conductors applied individually for
their old positions, but were informed
that their names would be placed
on file and in case of any vacancies they
would be advised. The sympathizing
business men are not likely to get mixed
up with the strikers again right away at
The nomination of Wm. McKinley has
been almost a foregone conclusion for
many months. On account of his recog
nized abilities as an orator, his work
as a legislator has not been confined
by state lines, but lie has become a man
of national reputation. Messers. Reed
and Allison are both competent men for
the position, but the McKinley wave was
too much for them and they fell by tho
wayside. McKinley is now in his prime
and his long experience in public affairs
will doubtless fit him to perform the"
duties as executive of a country like this
with ease. The money plank in tho
platform will be no surprise to the party as
It appeared to be the only feasible plan
to insure safety. McKinley will ' doubt
less receive three-fourths of the votes
in the electoral college.

If the opinion of the secretary of the
state board of health is good for any
thing, the soldiers should not be permit
ted to use the water in Crabtreo's spring.
The secretary forbid the council estab
lishing a pumping station there for the
town, as he claimed that the sewage
flowed that way and the water was im
pure. The officers of the army should be
advised of this decision before they lose
half their men by using the water.
Senator Teller is likely to be nomi
nated for president by the silverites and
populists. Now if this is done will not

A Weekly Hudget of Interesting News
from the Capital.
Washington. June 111. For the elev
enth time the representatives of the
publican party have assembled in nat
ional convention, formulated a platform
of principles and nominated a presiden
tial ticket. Both gentlemen Have rec
ords of which the party has a right to be
proud, and of which it will be prouder
after they have served out their terms as
president and vice president.
There was only one regretable feature
about the St. Louis convention. That
was the bolting of some of the silver repub
licans, becauso tho financial plank ef the
platform did not meet their views.
A counterpart of Comptroller Bowler,
in the person of Sixth Auditor Howard,
has been making so much trouble by
holding up postotliee accounts that it is
said Postmaster General Wilson has mi'
tifled Mr. Cleveland that it Howard isn't
fired he will himself resign. The clerks
in the sixth auditor's office, commonly
called "Botany Bay," are much interest
ed in the outcomoof this squabble.
Mr. Cleveland's announcement that
his only desire hereafter is to be a pri
viteln the deaiocatic party is regarded as
a sort of last ditch expedient to prevent
the adoption of a free coinage plank
by the Chicago convention.
Naples, Italy, Juno 10, 18!W.-The
Augean stables were doubtless Daa
enough, but what would a nice New Eng
land or a Dutch housekeeper say of Na
ples? This city stands pre-eminent lnbac
tana and microbe manufacturing indus
tries. This is not meanttobederogatory to
Naples at all.for the interest of the place
is largely referable to the picturesque
dirt. The true Neapolitan face is not
charactarized so much by black eyes and
rosy lips as by dirt, and one always
thinks when looking at the children of
Charles Lamb's remark, "If dirt were
trumps what hands they would hold."
In rainy weather the streets are covered
with a thin, black batter of mud, and
the carefully dressed American, and the
daily "tubbed" Englishman rind them
selves after a few hours' sight Beeing re
duced to the real Neapolitan state.
The streets here are painfully narrow,
in fact, just wide enough to allow car
riages to pass. On the numerous holidays
two long processions of carriages block
the business streets from end to end, and
the man who has not yet been so influ
enced by the climate as not to care
whether he reaches the bank today or
next week, fiuds this slow moving pro
cession a sore trial to his patience. The
eide-walks are even worse. On the prin
cipal shopping street they are about two
feet wide. At one point in this street we
saw a man tho other day, who nonchal
ently lead a goat out of a gate opening
on the pavement, and quietly sat down
to milk her. The pedestrians respected
his energy and tho entire mass moved
off the sidewalk so as not to disturb him.
The Italians are a good natured people.
The beggars are innumerable. They
conduct business everywhere and there
seems to be between them and the gen
darms, who are almost as numerous, a
kind of understanding that one will not
disturb the other. There is a magnifi
cent arcade in the city called the Gal-
leria Vittorio Emmanuelo, but the pleas
ure to walk through it is spoiled by the
little beggars who turn handsprings and
somersaults in front of you through the
entire place in hope of a penny. A lit
tle girl conducts business of this kind in
the Galleria and reaps large rewards, a
shop keeper told me, for doing it so
"modestly." A man, smokinglis follow
ed any distance, until he drops the stub
of his cigar, when a struggle for its pos
session ensues. In the streets that lead
up to the hill the poorer classes reside,
and the sights these streets afford are
worth crossing the ocean and all its at
tendant sea-sickness to see. Many of
them are only long flights of stairs and
others are so steep that land slides in the
city are of common occurrence. Of
course horses cannot go on these inclines
so the whole domestic economy of the
families is exhibited on the street. They
live almost altogether out of doors and it
is no uncommon thing to see children
washed and dressed and other domestic
scences of a more or less delicate charac
ter enacted in the open air. But all of
these things do not interfcro with the
charm of these picturesque, tortuous
streets and alleys. In fact they constitute
its charm, and the scene that in America
would make you hasten for policeman,
forms here the subject of your snap-shot,
It is something in the setting of the
picture the tall pink and yellow houses
with their dirty windows and broken
walls, the blue, blue sky overhead, the
black streets below; in the distance across
the brilliant bay, Vesuvius smoking his
daily pipe all these are the cause, and
though you talk loudly about the advan
tage of American thrift and progressive
uess, you long to linger hero where
"mere passive existence is itself a
The schools, so far as I can learn, are
very good. Attendance is compulsory
and the normal instruction for the teach
ers very careful. In all the grades Eng
lish, German and French are taught.
The fact that the people have enjoyed
freedom and good schools for less than
one generation is apparent in the su
perior intelligence of the younger mem
bers of the households. The older per
sons speak a soft, abbreviated Italian
and one always tninKs or them as a peo
ple whose energy has been expend 1 for
euphony, but the children show a quick
ness of perception and an intelligence
that is surprising. Many of tho people
are complaining that the public schools
are undermining not only parental, but
church authority, which is probably true,
and will be the cause in a few genera
tions of better days for Italy. And
speaking of the churches, Phave seen
nothing that so well characterized the
ultramontane view as a performance at
a cafe chantanf a few nights since, when
a Franciscan monk was caricatured in
the drollest and most irreverent manner,
while the audience applauded and encor
ed again and again.
In combination, proportion and
process Hood's Sarsaparilla is peculiar
to itself, and unequalled in true merit.
No other medicine ever possessed so
much curative power, or reached such
enormous sales, or made such won
derful cures, as Hood's Sarsaparilla.
It is undoubtedly the best medicine
ever made to purify, vitalize and en
rich the blood. ,
That is the secret of its success.
Head this statement:
" When my son was 7 years of ge, he
had rheumatic fever and acute rheuma
tism, which settled in his left hip. He
was so sick that no one thought there was
any help for him. Five sores broke out
on his thigh, which the doctor said were
sores. We bad three different doctors.
Pieces of bone came out of the sores. JThe
last doctor said the leg would have to be
cut open and the bone scraped, before he
could get well. Howard becamo so low
that he would eat nothing, and one doc
tor Baid there was no chance for him.
" One day, a newspaper recommending
Hood's Sarsaparilla was left at our door.
We decided to try this medicine. Howard
commenced taking it the last of February,
after having been sick for a year and a
half. He hadn't taken it a week before I
saw that bis appetite began to improve,
and then he gained rapidly. ,1 gave him
five bottles, when the sores were all healed
and they never broke out again. The
crutches he had used for four years were
laid aside, as he had no further use for
them. 1 give all the credit to Hood's Sar
saparilla. " Mrs. Ada L. Moody, Fay
