DEMOCRATIC NORTHWEST, NAPOLEON, O., NOVEMBER 5, 1896. Steering clear c 4he shoals U ill health and the rocks of disease is easy enough if only the digestion be kept in rood order. It isn't often any one sick unless they have indigestion. The commonest way in which lndlges tion shows itself is i n constipation Nine people in ten are troubled more rr less in this way Nine-tenths of all the world's sickness is caused by this one trouble. Sleepless, nesa, pimples, blotches, headaches, sour stomach, dizziness, 'heart-burn," palpi- cation, biliousness, distress apex eating--11 thew are merely srmntoms of conrti- pation. Why do people suffer with them when the cure is so simple and so easily obtained f Years ago, JDr. Pierce's Pleas- ant Pellets were placed on the maraer. Since then, there has been no excuse for anybody to suffer from constipation, and its attendant ills. The "Pellets" cure every case infallibly and permanently.

Seventy-Six Miles an Hour Over This Great Railroad . St. Lotns, Sept. 15. To ride on locomotive that is pulling an express train at the rate of soventy-Bix miles an hour is an interesting and exciting experience, made more interesting, perhaps, when in the laBt of these nine cars hitched to this monster of the rails there rides W. J. Bryan, the Democratic candidates for president of the United States, with divers and sundry minor candidate and dignitar ies of the Democratic party. Such an experience as this fell to the lot of The Times correspondent between Kansas City and St. Louis last Satur day. The whoie trip of nearly 300 miles was an interesting one, although it was in the closing ninety-two miles that the journey was made on the lo comotive. BIDING ON THE ENGINE. But all thia is another story from that I started out to tell. At Wells ville through the courtesy of Super intendent Garrett, of this divison of the Wabash road, I was permitted to climb into the fireman's seat on en gine 145, an 89,000-pound monster, built in the Wabash shops at Spring field, Ills,, and fitted up with the pat ent inventions of J. B. Barnes, super intendent of motive power and ma chinery; As we pulled out of Mont gomery; the last stop for sixty-one miles, Engineer C. 0. Smith, famil iarly known as "Chris," made ready for a run. The fireman, James Cain, shoveled the coal into the white-hot bed of fire under the boiler, whence came with every opening of the door a blast as though it blew direct from the infernal regions. There was a deep rumble, and a motion that seem ed a blending of a tremble and a throb, and gradually we gathered speed until the great driving rods flew around with almost lightning motion. The road was nearly level, running through a slightly rolling country ,for we had left the broad Missouri valley, and were traveling a succession of cuts and fill-ins, with an occassional bridge or culvert from which rose a dull roar as we passed. The motion was something simply tremendous. As we dashed around the curves the engine lurched and rose, seeming almost to leave the track in its mad flight. At that moment it was not especially inspiring to know that there was just an inch of iron flange be tween us and eternity. Clinging des perately to whatever projections the ' inside of the cab afforded, I shouted back, disjointedly: "How does the engine keep the track?" 'Don't you know," came back quite as disjointedly, "the faster the speed the less danger of the engine leaving the rails?" I didn't know it but I was glad to hear it By this time we were run. sing along at a fearful speed. "Look down at the ground," said Mr. Braddick, the general traveling engineer who was on the engine. I looked from the cab window, but for twenty feet from the track every, tiling was an indistinguishable blur. Farther away where the eyes could ILL focus, objects were, of course, plainly discernible, and the cattle, of which there were plenty, peaceful cropped the grass fifty yards away, undismay ed by the iron monster that dashed past, breathing out smoke and steam, On the tram flew, the four screech es of the whistle and the clanging of the bell giving warning at road cross ings. Stations were thundered past, each with its little group gathered to sea the Brvan train iio by, and their shrill cheers sounded for the frag' mentofthe second amid the din. Bat no stops were made. The white arms were up on the signal post, and the engineer from his side shouted "All Clear" to the fireman on the other, who made a like response, the iron clutch on the mail car caught the mail bag, and on the ponderous train whirled. SETJENTY-BIX MILES AN HOUB. A milepost gleamed ahead. The engineer pointed to it and took out his watch. Then, after holding his time-piece, while the wind that came in at the front window like a wall blew his hair all pompadour, he timed his iron steed. The track was straight as a die, the grade slightly decend ing. Our speed seemed appalling, i held on for dear life, and looked right ahead with fleeting misgivings as to the sacredness of the right of way of passenger trains on the Wabasb Another mile-post came in sight, and as it dashed by "Chris" called out in that sounded as though it came through the roarings of the gale at sea. "Fifty Beconds-72 miles an hour." I tried to shout my congratula tions, but he held up hiB hand warn. inirly, and kept his eye on the track. Almost before vou could count another mile-post glittered pass, and he came over and shouted in my ear: nPnTtT-anven seconds. Now you can tell your friends that you rode on an nncina that was making over seventy-six miles an hour." Perhaps the passengers behind may not have regarded the speed as any. thine unusual. Perhaps the presiden tial candidate in the rear thought it nothing compared to the rate at which ha fancies he is traveline to that white pillared mansion on Penn sylvania avenue in the city of magnih cent distances, which is the highest goal of American Ambition. But to actually realize the speed at which one travels one muBt be clinging to the seat of a fortv-five ton locomo tive, one side of you roasting from close proximity to the boilerhead, the wind hnfffltincr vour face, while the glittering rails seem to rush forward to meet you, only to be remorselessly trodden under the flying feet of your snorting steed. And right here the. writer wishes to place on record hiB undying ani mosity toward those people who, with a train flying after them, display such lagardliness if he is not coin ing a word in getting off the track. Occassionally a Wearly Waggles or Dusty Rhodes, or trackmen pursuing their work under the hot sun, would heave in sight, if anything on earth could be more exasperating than the length of time they stayed on the track, or the BlowneSH and delibera tion with which they moved off as the train neared them, the writer has not experienced it in his journey through life.

One majestic gobler, however, with feathers on end tail fan-shaped, strutted across in stately dignity, evi dently believing that no express tram dare come "between the wind and his M&tilitv." "That cobbler will never see Thanksgiving," said'Chris' grimly. Now the hills of Illinois began to loom up across the distant Mississippi, We sighted again the Missouri left hundred miles or more behind, cross ed at St. Charles the three-million dollar bridge that spans it, and look, ed down from a height of ninety feet into its turbid waters. Soon we see the smoke of St. Louis and enter its suburbs. Then came parks and street crossings and street railway tracks, and the whistle sounds frequently, while I proud mortal! am allowed to ring the bell. Leaning from the cab window with one hand on the rope, I wave the other with a lordly air to residents of suburban cottages who send a cheering greeting as we rushed past. The track became a net work of rails, white arms wave from the signal posts, and the switch lamps gleam thickly, red and white. Re versing our direction the long train is backed rapidly into the great Union station, and as we stop the wheeze of the airbrakes is drowned br the cheenntr of the crowd as sembled to greet our distinguished passenger. And thus we brought Bryan to St, Louis. Henry Hall. Correspondent Pittsburg, Pa, Times. Written for the NobthestO ALONG TBE ST. JOE. After spending a few months amid new scenes and with a change of vaca tion which is often better than a rest; whether it be in some foreign country or some unfamiliar corner of our own land, it is only natural for a man from Ohio to give expression to what he has seen under the new environ ments. As Victor Hugo attempted to prove by a syllogism that Normandy was the finest country on earth, even so the minds of the inhabitants of the St. Joe Valley seem permeated with a similar idea. Nor is it strange with their love of country, devotion to state, and most excellent soil and cli mate which makes it one of the finest fruit countries along the Great Lakes. The St. Joseph river, as you may know flows across the southwest cor- er of Michigan; emptying into Lake Michigan. At its mouth are situated the Twin cities of Benton Harbor and St. Joseph. The former, the larger of the two. being situated on the north bank of the river on ground which gradually rises from the river's brink. The latter crowning a high bluff to the south, and commanding a fine view of the surrounding country and a broad expause of the lake. While the St. Joe Valley is noted for its immense fruit productions, it is equal ly well known as a summer resort. Thousands annually visit this region ing recreation boating on the lakes and streams or wheeling over hills which would disgust a cyclist ac customed to the level roads of Henry county. Not only do they come from Michigan but from other states and the inland metropolis Chicago. The St. Joseph river is not so large as the Maumee but for variety of scenery it is far in the lead. Its his. tory may not be so important, yet it is very interesting to read. It was at this point on the 29th of October, 1679 that LaSalle with Mb company of missionaries and traders landed af ter a perilous voyage from Green Bay. On the south bank of the river was an Indian village; and the light of their camp-fires could be seen far up the river, but farther out on the waters of the lake. Here LaSalle smoked the pipe of peace with the Indians and erected a fort and chapel while awaiting the arrival of the ship which was to bring them supplies from Fort Frontenac. But after waiting in vain for more than a month he learned from a party of traders who had arrived from Mackinac that the ship had sunk early iu the Au tumn and with it the crew and his entire fortune. Thus finding himself deprived of means to carry on his trade with the Indians he turned his attention to the exploration of the Mississippi and its tributaries. And St. Joseph afterward became an import ant frontier trading post. For a day's outing let us go aboard the May Graham, an up-river steam boat. This boat is of about 50 tons burden, and runs up the river to a distance of more than thirty miles, carrying freight and passangers. At a few minutes past eight o'clock in the morning, the schedule time for starting, the moorings are withdrawn and the boat slowly proceeds on its day's journey. The draw-bridges slowly open to give us entrance. The city is lost from view as we round the first point of the wood-crowned shore. The chilly morning air and the mists which often envelope the river give away to the rays of the bright September sun. The effect of the early frosts is'already seen on the trees. The Autumn tints are begin ning to show forth; and the trees are only awaiting the final blaze of glory, wnen tney-will sued their summer robes. Along the shore are seen all kinds of summer abodes from the white tent to fine county seats nestled among orchards and vineyards. Cot tages are numerous. On the left in a grove of maples with white-washed trunks, is the camp of a military company taking their annual vacation Occasionally . we see a company of hobos encamped along the shore pre paring their meagre repast, who have already found their celestial company an insufficient covering to protect them from the cold night air, and will soon migrate to warmer climes. ine xartner we ascena tne river the more winding is its course, and the hills rise much higher on each side. The boat makes but few stops in going up stream. As noon ap, proaches we arrive at Berrien Springs, which is the upper end of the route. We go on shore to get our lunch and wonder why the streets are so quiet, but just outside of the town the coun ty fair is in session, which in this sec tion of the country is the chief event of the year. But we haven't much time to. spend here as there are over thirty stops to make in going back, or about one for each mile. As we start down the river the in creased speed of the boat is noticed quite readily. Although the river has a tranquil appearance, there is a swift current running. The unseen whirlpooh and undercurrents make it a most treacherous stream for bathing and many are the fatahtis resulting therefrom each season. The hours pass swiftly by, though our progress down the river is more slowly. At the numerous stops the boat is being loaded with wagon-load after wagon-load of fruits and vegeta- The Curse o! Mankind! The most horrible disease to which the human family is subject is conta gions blood poison. It has always baffled the doctors, for notwithstanding the progress made in some branches of medicine, they have failed absolutely to discover a cure for it. Whether in the form of powder, pill or liquid, the doc tor's prescription is always the same potash or mercury. Mr. Otto H. Elbert, who resides at the corner of 2d Street, and Avenue N., Galveston, Texas, had a severe experi ence with this dreadful disease, and nnder date of April 5th, 1896, writes: "Several years ago I was so unfortu nate as to contract contagions blood poison, and was nnder treatment of the best physicians continuously for four years. As soon as I discovered that I had the disease, I hastened to place myself nnder the care of one of the foremost doctors in my State, and took his treatment faithfully for several months. It was a very short time after he pro nounced me well, that the disease broke out afresh, and I was in a far worse con dition that at first. Large lumps formed MR. OTTO H.

We go down the hatchway, there, piled on all sides and reaching clear to the deck are barrels, boxes, crates, and baskets, and still room for more. If we wish to indulge in the study of human na ture for a moment let us stop and watch the "roust-abouts" as they load the boat. Their looks and language soon remind us of the Spanish proverb that "everyone is as (4od made him, and oftentimes a good deal worse." We go above. The fast sinking sun has transferred the beauty of the scene to the east side of the river. The evening seems to be trying to outvie the morning. The wooded hills with their veriegated colors rise one above another, and an occasional clump of evergreens along their crest form an impressive background. It is dark and we still have several miles before us. The captain keeps a sharp eye on the river. At length as we make the last turn bright lights appear along the shore far ahead. Are they Indian campGre? No. It is no longer an out-post of civilization that we are approaching. As we pass through the long bridge that con nects tne two cities a trolley car awaits our passage. On either side of the river yard engines are busy making up trains. Ships loading and unloading merchandise line the shore. Passenger steamers are ready to start on their trip across the lake. The electric lights cast a thousand reflec tions upon the water; thus making one grand panoramic view of civiliza tfbn and progress. And no more does the Indian smoke the pipe of peace along the St. Joe. Alfred S. Tcbbs. Henry Co. C. E. Convention. In pursuance to a call issued to the various C.

On my way from the Leipziger strasse to the exhibition, while sitting on the top of a tram car, a young lady of some 17 summers, with a fine, intelligent and unmistakably Jewish face, came on and sat herself beside me. The maiden blushed as maiden never blushed before, and my curiosity was aronged to its highest point when I noticed every per son on the car stare at her with a smile of approbation. Nay, more on the route people stopped and looked at her. Men raised their hats and women waved their handkerchiefs. Indeed children looked through the windows and kepi their eyes fixed on the top of my tram till they could see it no more. What could all this mean? That the young Jewess at my side was "the woman of the hour," a person whom Berlin was idolizing, some publio benefactress to whom the denizens of the capital were giving evidence of their thorough-appreciation and heartfelt gratitude was patent to all who had eyes to see. What, then, was her heroio deed? Why did every person on the oar say most cordially, "Ich gratultere ihnen, fraulein," when the lady was about to descend? The solution of the mystery was as singular as it was amusing. It had by the vigorous laws and oustoms of the Teutons been denied until the morning in question to the fair sex to ascend the steps of an omnibus or tram car throughout the length and breadth of Germany. Some of the "manly women" in Ber lin, gasping for franchise as well as for fresh air in the summer months, de clared that they - had tolerated long enough the cruelty of being pent up in a tram car full of their own sex while the men were above enjoying the de lightful summer breeze. They sent dep utations and petitioned the powers that be to break once and forever a law unworthy of enlightened Germany. Some of the newspapers volleyed aud thundered against such innovations. "Oh, for the degeneracy of the father land I" they sighed. But at length the ladies had their way as ladies always will and the great privilege was re served for me to sit beside the yonng Jewess whose name ought to be banded down to posterity as probably the first female in Germany who was bold enough to ascend the steps of a tram car. London Telegraph. . Charm of throat Books. It is clear, then, that those are but rude spirits who have no reverence foi all that pertains to a book. What could be coarser and more barbarous than the demand that the quivering edges of a volume, "with all the straggling fibers that flutter on the verge of life, " should be cut and hacked to dead evenness and stilted smoothness? Such butchers would trim the oak leaf, torture the lily and prune the luxuriance of the horse chest nut. The plea of utility is the most barren of all. Is there any good thing in na ture that does not demand labor in the search? Are we to grumble at the sting of the bee or blind ourselves to its glossy beauty in our haste to steal its honey? It is but half of reading to mere ly read. There is, so to speak, a court ship as well as a marriage with on. author's text, a time for dalliance, fox indulgence, for emotion, for coy ap proach and wistful glance. And this to the true reader is more than all the bare commercial zest in grasping its heart and putting its soul to usury, as If au thors but worked for us as slaves in the mines to make ns rich. No moments are so delicious as those in which the reader first approaches hie author, when the volume lies but half revealed.
