McKinley has added more lustre to the office of president of the United States. The democratic press is suggesting that the soldiors who are now returning home, owing to the extreme hardships and sufferings many of them endured, will vote against the Republican nomi nees for congress in the elections this fall. Why vote against the republicans? It the hospital corps is to blame for any lack of care and nursing, why lay it to the republicans? On May 12th, 1898, in the house of representatives, Mr. Boutelle of Maine, asked to have consid ered a bill H. R. 10220 to organize a hos pital corps and define its duties, when Mr. McMillan of Tennessee, a democrat, objected to its consideration. Again, on May 24th, Mr. Boutelle of Maine, made an effort to have the same bill considered, when Mr. Underwood of Alabama, a democrat, demanded the reg alar order, which was equivalent to an objection. Now, if the hospital corps has not been able to do all that this em ergency demanded, who is to blame? The Republicans proposed to organize a hospital corps, and the Democrats ob jected and said no. This is but a little f the history of the democratic opposi tion, and no good reason can be assign ed why the soldiers shall prefer to vote for a democratic congressman in prefer ence to a republican, as every war meas ure proposed and enacted into law dur ingthe Inauguration of the war with Spain was the result of party manage ment on the part ot the republicans.

Goodwin, the old reliable in surance agent The Producer of Liquid Air Began Studying Out the Question When Under Age. Copyright, 1898. I have becu a;l;ed to tell what I know about Mr. Tripler and his dis covery of liquid air. It was, if I re member aright, some time in the sum mer of 1S94, when Mr. Charles E. Trip ler called on me one morning in my study and informed me of the nature of his experiments in the production of liquid air, the succebs of those experi ments, and the purpose which he had had In view in conducting them. He bad been much impressed by various calculations with regard to the amount of our coal deposits, and their probable exhaustion within a measurable time at the present rate of consumption. He saw before him a period, beyond the limit of his own life, it is true, but yet within sight, when industry, prog ress and civilization itself must come to an end through the exhaustion of the supply of coal, unless some other and more economical force could be substituted for steam. Mr. Tripler is the junior warden of St. Michael's church, New York, of which am rector, and I have known him for years; In fact, almost always, lie was born in 1849, and is a native New York er. He never formally studied natural science, yet from his boyhood he dis played a bent for physical and me- that it seemed for a time almost im possible that he should recover. Ulti mately he regained his health complete ly, and resumed his experiments. These were now no longer regarded by tLe neighbors as a harmless amusement, but quite the reverse. His laboratory was shunned like c powder magazine, and what went on within its walls was shrouded in mystery. No one would have been surprised to hear any day that the whole place had been blown to atoms; aud iu the absence of any knowledge of the nature of the experi ments conducted there, this was prob ably the only outcome of Mr. Tripler's work of which his friends had any real expectation. . In his search for the grent new force, Mr. Tripler was led to experiment with gases, and especially to test their prop erties at extreme temperatures. This led to the liquefaction of first one gas and then another, until finally he suc ceeded In reducing ordinary air to a liquid, and even to a, solid state. His discovery of liquid air was approxi mately contemporary with the similar discovery of Prof. Dewar, in London, but encb discovery was independent of the other. Mr. Tripler's discovery was, of course, vastly more important than BOOTS We are going out of business and our entire stock of Boots and Shoes must be losed out before the ist. of January. MR. TRIPLER DIPPING LIQUID AIR FROM A CANISTER. ebanical contrivances. He was always experimenting with acids and other chemicals, or pottering with machin ery, and his room was alternately a chemical and a physical laboratory. It was in 1871, when he was little more than 21 years of age, that he commenced the researches to which I have already referred, for a power to take the place of steam. A few years later these re searches were interrupted by his de votion to art. It is, I believe, rather an unusual thing for a person to pos sess at the same time artistic and me chanical ability. Mr. Tripler pos sessed both, and Indeed his friends believed that hts artistic ability was far greater than his mechanical. Between 1875 and 1878 Mr. Tripler exhibited several paintings, and decorated a few rooms. Then to the great disappointment of his friends he threw down the painter's brush, and turned back again to chemicals and machines. He lived at that time at the old Woodlawn place, about at the point where nest End avenue and the boule vard now join one another. There was on this property a little old wooden building. This building Mr. Tripler fit ted up as a workshop, and there he spent his time amusing himself, as hts friends supposed, by profitless experl mcnts. At first he devoted himself to experiments in quartz crushing, with view to the invention of a more eco nomical and efficient method of sepa rating metal from the rock in which it is contained than those then in use, Before long he was drawn again into the search for a force to take the plaoe of steam, and from that time to the present he has conducted bis experi ments and researches with that end la view. As e man of independent means he was able to devote himself unhin dered to these experiments. He never breathed to anyone a word about ths nsture of his investigations or the dis covery he hoped to make, and his mends and neighbors regarded him as a mere dilettante, and his laboratory as a harmless sort of toy. Ons day, while he wm experimenting with gases. metal retort exploded, wrecking ths In terior of the workshop and seventy in juring Mr. Tripler. Indeed, roughly tpeklng. be .wss .o.brw to yisoss that of Prof. Dewar. The latter had ascertained that air oould be liquefied. and at great expense had succeeded in liquefying it in minute quantities. Mr. Tripler by a very different and quite simple method, was able to produce liquid air in large quantities at a small expense. Of course there was a great deal of work to be done before the discovery could be made practicable, before he could be sure that he could control and apply the force which he had diBcov' ered, much more before he could per suade others that it could be applied to practical uses. I believe that I was the first person to whom he revealed his discovery and his hopes on that sum mer morning, in 1894. I was at that time entirely ignorant of the nature of the experiments he had been conduct ing in his mysterious workshop, and had like everyone else a vague idea that tbey were probably of dilettante and unprofitable character, Great was my uuiuzeinent, therefore. when he told me briefly of the search upon which he had entered many years before for a new, and more economical force, and how he had found not only a new and more economical but also a vastly more powerful force than any hitherto known. Then he told me of his discovery of liquid air, of the ex tremely low temperature at which it liquefied apd of its enormous expansion in the return from the liquid to the gaseous state. To expand water into steam and obtain power you need great heat, and much consumption of coal To expand liquid air into gaseous air and obtain a hundrefold greater pow er you need no coal and no more heat than you find in ordinary Ice. Then he showed me a draft of a machine for manufacturingliqutdalr, and explained to. me how the process once started continues itself, the air already lique fied being compelled by an ingenious arrangement of coils to draw in and liquefy evennor air from the lne haustible reservoir without.

Mergenthaler, the present candidate for secretary-treasur er ot the Ohio Division on the "ring ticket, became chief council, and S. L. Ghaster; the present "ring" candidate for chief counsul, became secretary-treasurer, the membership in the Ohio Divis ion was 1,645. At the present time (August l'J. 1898) the number of mem bers is 2,783, showing an increase for the past six years of 1,138. truly a most wonderful showing, when we consider that durtng exactly the same period New York has increased her membership by 17.060. Pennsylvania by 15,409, Massa chusetts by 9,202, and New Jersey by 4175. That this lack of increase is due to the fact that old members have asked, "What do I get for my dollar?" and fail ing to receive a satisfactory answer, have therefore neglected to renew their membership upon its expiration, is plainly shown by the following figures: From June 4, 1897, to August .19, 1898, 1.742 new members have joined the div ision, while the actual membership has increased but 356, showing a net loss for this period alone of 1,386. In other words, while the membership, figuring on the interim between the above dates alone, should amount to 4,169, it is in reality only 2,783, . Now this falling off is due almost entirely to the nocuous desuetude (to revise Cleveland's famous expression) of the present officers of the division. Had these members, who have tailed to renew, seen any benefit accruing to them as a result of their membership in the ,. A. W. it stands to reason that they would have renewed; but they wanted to get their money's worth, and believing that they were not, dropped by the wayside. The work of recruiting new members has been well done, but the work of hold incr them after joining, which is essen tially the duty of the officers of the div ision, has been poorly done, and for this no one is responsible other than these self same officials, whom the Reformers are endeavoring to relegate to the rear.

We will do our part and look after clothes, beginning with the little tots, furnishing suits of heavy crash and linen of all sorts and colors for ages 2 J to 8, at 50 cents to $1.00. Then comes the cassimeres and worst eds for the same ages; little Fauntltroy and reefer suits. The styles of these are varied and include many pretty designs in both two-piece and vested suits. Prices range from $1.00 to $3.50. Another and very important line is the knee-pant suits, ages from eight to fifteen years. These are worn during the boy's earlier school years, when a suit should both look and wear well. Our aim has been to obtain suits with both of these qualifications, and that we have been suc cessful is evidenced by the exceptionally large demand we have tor them. The prices are 95 cents to $5.00, and the assort ment is is complete. We want especially to show you these for it is nearing school time again and you will soon want them.
