H ' who would keen Ms affection. admiration and allegiance to his east ern home, must, keep way .from Kansas during the months of .May and June, for dull and impasw've must be the nature that can remain uninfluenced by the supreue lovell Hess of the landscape, the softness and purity of the atmosplvere and the evidences or aoounatnif nie every where present in this favored state djjriricr those months. Let the east boast itself of its nmnntalna n.ml rivers, its lakfla and Its Niagara, let the. west point with pride to the Rookies, its Cascades, its Vo'semite,. the south glory in its cot ton Ileitis and forests of palmetto and pine, its plantations of cane and its orange groves; let the north rival the famous Nile valley In fertility and look proudly upon its vast wheat fields equalling in extent the area of many European principalities, let all take pride in their own, it is right that they should do so. but let them not forget Kansas with its pare air, its tree fringed water courses, its "walls of corn," its squats miles of wheat, its countless herds of cattle, rolling prairies for them to ft el upcr, us oil neias, its reservoirs 01 gas, us enormous coal areas, its storage of Bait, and in all, over all, and through , all, the indomitable energy and spir it of its people which time and again has met and over come seemingly unsurmountable diffloultks, snatched victory from defeat, brought light ont of darkness, and persisted where others would have given up in des- The true Kansas man is unconquerable. He sees his orops destroyed by drought and grasshoppers, his hou3es and bams made th" sport of the winds, bat he rises "to the -latB through ainioumsa m ( thrive upon misfortune. Iu&lefol Of mccrl. ins for bh winter killed wheat, ftp joyfully plows it up, congratulating himself mean while that he has so Muoh tho greater space for corn and oats. When the hot winds de stroys bis corn he is just as well pleased that he does not have to Fpend the time husking it, but has so muoh the more time to plow for wt eat. When he sees his hogs and cattle floating down the oreek, owing to sudden rise of the water, he remarks to his nearest neighbor: "And yet those jBys east, talk about droughty Kansns,' and goes to work trying to rescue them, or failing in that, prooeeds to rebuld his oorral and pens really for new occupants. Politically its hard to tell just where to find Kansas. Until within a few years the state has been overwhelmingly republican. A few years ago the peoples party craze strnck the inhabitants and has raged inter mittently ever since, and has been so timed that that party has eleoted three United nt.t Snnntnrs Peffer. M artin and Harris. Two Governors have oome from that party Llewellingand Leedy. The last legislature was under control of the populists, aud so elected the United States Senator. For some reason Senator Peffer did not suit them, so they sent w. a. narris to wasn ington in his Btend. Senator Harris is one -of the bent men, not only in that party but in the state. He was a Colonel in the southern army doringthe "late unpleasant ness," is a scholarly, well read man, a prac tical farmer and stook raiser, and his char acter and reputation is above reproach. He ia democratic in politics, in fact he has never entirely aSBliRted with the peoples party. ven bis political enemies acknowl edge the fact that no better man conld have be n chosen to fill suoh a respon sible position as he oooupies. It seems strange though that Kansus should be rep resented in the highest ootmcil of the nation - by an "ex-rebel" as some term him who do not know that the war clOBed a third of a century ego. ... If the legislature had done nothing worse last winter than to elect a United Slates Senator, its record would have been a good one. It, however, distinguished itself by the passage of a school text book law, which is the worst blow the public school system of the state ever received. Many who judge from surface Indications jilone think that if there was uniformity in text books all over the state, much money would be saved the tax payer. Then add to that an established price above which none wonld dare to sell, and the satisfaction of the tax-payer would be too deep for expres- Now everybody knows or should know that thero are two sides to every question, rifton if one disadvantage is suppressed another, and perhaps a worse one will take its place. If the state meddles with things subject to the universal laws of trade, it is acre to fail. All history has proved long innn to the student of political economy thai laws to fix the prices of farm produce, manufactured articles, or the rate of inter eat on loans, have been inoperative. School books are the combined product of the an thor and the publisher, aud as suoh are sub ' jeot to the laws of trade, and law can no more nx tne price or sonooi uuuno tuaa could fix the price of wheat or beef. Acrain.it is well known that if one firm or company has the monopoly of any one ' thing, the price either rises or the article deteriorates in quality. Competition is the life of trade in more ways than one. la all iu hiatnrv of education never have school . text books attained to suoh perfection in twfh matarUl and contents as now. Com.

The state appropriate (10.CO0 for th purena of manossripts to be ooo ed and pnblished by the state. How far $10,0(10 will go, may bejodged from the fact that the inanuMriptof Appleton's Render alone are said to have coot the poblisher over f 40,0t. Good atatiticians say that th change will cost the state $400,000 befora it can be put into operation. Many change of bribery were made In eonneoiion with th paaaxge of this law and they era under investigation now, in fact I am not sore that the law would bar pasted at alt if there bad not been so many charges of bribery brought against the legislature that it was ait man1 reputation was worth to vote against it. The legislature interfered with the state educational institutions as never had been done before in the history of the state. It even took apon itself a doty belonging ex- olnrively to the various fcoards of regents that of Dung salaries, ana tne result i what was to be expected every salary, with the exception of ttiat of Prof. L. L. Diehe of the Mate university, was oat. Chancellor Snow' of the state university being reduced from 5,000 to $3,600. As a consequence the state schools are losing some of their best men. Chancellor Snow will remain, not beoaose be could not do mncb better financially, but because he has been in the university tor more than thirty years his whole soul was bound npinit; he has seen it grow from four professors and fifty students to a faculty numbering nearly s xly and an attendance nombering over one thousand students. Money is a secondary consideiation with such a man as Chancellor Snow. Bat the agricultural college suffered the greatest inaignity. In the appointing of the board of regents, several terms having expired, which were filled fcy Republicans, Populists were put into their places. At the first meeting afterward every member of the facnlty and every employee of the insti tution vas discharged, then those were in stitnted wbo-ie "views oorreatunded with the fnnrlnmental princibles of the adminis tration," to quote the words of the presi dent ol the bourn, no charges or tncoin petency or neglect of duty were brought against them or even implied. It was a purely political move nothing else is ev er nretHnded. President Fairchild tins been in his office for eighteen years, and under hid adminis- (ration the college has grown to be one of the most famous schools, not only in the United States but in the world. It it the first time that politi.' hs ever entered into the man agement of the stute schools, that isofn oinlly, ienrs ago politics sucoeeded in driving from the state one of the best men .Kansas ever hsd Chancellor James H, Canfield, now of the O.iio State University, but that was done by the sensless howl of a republican press, not by the board of regents. If Kansas keeps on thus distingu ishing itseir, it will have an unenviable repu tation before long. it was intendtd to so arrange things that a clean sweep wonld be made at the State University also, but the bill removing Chan cellor Know from the board of regents fail ed to pass the Senate. If it had passed, Popuust wonld have been appointed and the same misfortune would have befallen that institution. There is a scheme cn foot so it said, to displace President Taylor of the State Kornini School, and put State Superintendent Stryker in his place at the close of Striker's term of office, but I doubt that beiog scoomplished, as the peo ple are anvo to tne situation and will not al low things to go so far again. They were taken by surprise this time. C! L. . "I have never had a day's sickness In my Jife," said a middle-aged man the other day.

Trial bottle 10o, The Issue, The qtlestlon is being asked: What shall the platform of the Democra cy be for the coming State contest? We epeak only for the good of the Democratic party when we say that the platform should be short and sweet. Already we hear of Demo crats who last fall were mislead into bolting the regular ticket, but who are now willing to come back upon terms which seem reasonable and just. By simply reaffirming the principles enunciated at Chioago, without a lengthy and tiresome repe tition of each plank, but reiterating word for word the money plank, and condemning the Dingley bill, with proper treatment of Bushnell's mis management, what more is desired. We hear gold Demoorats, (whatever that name may mean), saying that tney are willing to "chance it" on the silver ques tion. Like ex-Governor Campbell once said, they are willing to ri'k it. Tney mast have tome exouse for ooming back, and so long as we are gainers thereby, why should we drive them further awayr We do not counsel one backward step, bnt it is patent to everybody that there are many people who wonld have voted lor Bryan last fall if one or two planks in the Chicago platform had been omitted. We believe in every plank ot that great document, but donbt the necessity of put ting them all in another platform. The money issue is greater than all of the other issues together, and by adhering to it we ennnot fail. Read the speeches now being delivered by men, who, last fall spoke for "The Foot of a Fly ys sn eminent English doctor, "will carry enough poison to infect a house hold."

Strope'5 Heart Now no Longer Lags but Throbs Regularly. tyom ffte Leader, In large, commodious house at So. 104 II untin (nun Street, Cleveland, Ohio, lives Mrs. Emily A. Strope, widow of the lute X. M. Strope, and she is the mother of a young man who has been, and ia now one of this city's successful and energetic pharmacist. Mrs. Strope, vho has lately recovered from serious cardiac difficulty, when questioned by a re porter regarding her lute illness, stated as follows: "Twe years ago, I had my first experience with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. For a long time I was troubled with an ailment which I feared would eventually drive me crazy unless I rid myself of it. It will sound strange, no doubt, tosome, but my heart did not bent as it should. Its action was irregular. TheTe would be twe pulsations, or perhaps three, nnd then a sudden cessation. My heart seemed to rest for the period of one or two beats, nnd then resume its action. Sometimes such lapars would not be so frequent as that, but scarcely a day passed that they did not occur. It felt as tbonch something would strike the heart with greut force, and push it 'out of Slace. Paring that period, whenever I lay own to sleep or rest, my hands would become perfectly numb and helpless. I could feel the temporary paralysis coniinz over them, but I could do nothinp which would prevent it. My feet were affected in a like manner, and I hail consideniblcdirBeulty inwnlkingwhen such a spi ll had possession of me. Naturally thnt stfitcof affairs completely upset my nervis, and any one whose serxous System is well nigh McKinleyism and the gold standard. Mr. Bryan's prediction that "those who will not be convinced by srguments will be converted by experience,'' is being verified day by day.' The business community is be ginning to learn by experience that the money question in as muoh a trader's ques tion ns it is a bnnker'f qnestion. Experience hHS opened the eyes and en lightened the minds of many a bunineis man whose shelves remain stocked fcr want of buyers. Bayers are ns sosroe as money. They begin to see that money bays ths goods, aud that confidence is not a medium of exchange. The e truths now be'ng taught by the hard school of experienoo are uiukiog con verts by the thousand". It is a business man's business to study the subject of bi metalism. It nffeols him as mu b as it does the farmer, laborer or mechanic. He is oue of the most dependent of men. lie must depend almost entirely on the farmer, la borer or nieohauio for tne sales of his wares. He cannot depend on his batik, it he does. before loDg the bank will close him up. In short, all will admit that the money ques tion is paramount Rnd pre-eminent and should be the controlling plank. Nov. then, with all this admitted, the can didate should fit the platform and the plat form should lit the oandnate. We should nominate a man who can and will hurl de- nauoe at the foreign enemy the gold stand ard. He mnet not be a barrel candidate in or der to be consistent with the issus. lie must be a man of the people, whose ideas and daily life make him tneir champion. He should be a man of brains rather than of money, and of coo rage and, ability to make the kind of a oampaign that is rt quired in a battle where the people are arrayed on the one side and the syndicates, trusts and com bines on the other. Let ns frame our platform first, and then find the man who can wear it, Colooibos Call. Hand Dear Sir: "I have been using JrOur remedies far mv children for over four rears.

Fortv vears ago it was a custom of the court, the higher than the Com mon Pleas, which corresponds with our circuit court, to cover a large number of counties once or twice a year. This court was composed of two common pleas and a member of the Supreme bench. We have had related an incident in the experience of this court whioh not only shows a condition of those times, but the patience and good nature of our then judges. While they were usually giants in intellect, giving to the law a (superior knowledge, with honor and sincerity of purpose beyond cavil, they were, as well, full of a pint that could gatner in tne stitua ion all humor afloat, however muoh it may have accumulated to their in oenyenience. Due night, after this conrt had been doing business at the old stand in Kalida, then the county seat of Fntnam oounty. with lorn Bartley. of the Supreme bench, and Judges Metcalf and beney, tney retired tor tne niaht at the only hotel in town, whose land- lord was nrst-oiass as a jolly oompamon, out whose rooms and beds were not only of orimitive order, bnt devilish dirty, mat, however, was no terror to these judges, but in the middle of the night Metoalf and Seney woke no. Honey, perhaps, would have dreamed till morning, but Metoalf was fill- in? the room with sulDbur. animated witn gestures that sometimes fell upon Seney's fair complexion where pngilistic roles for bid asnrression. They were oovered with bed-bugs millions ot them, aoaoiaing to Metcalt. In sn adjoining room Tom Bartley was nlneninff with thci neaoefal tranauility of a child, snoring gently yet with considerable emnhneis. Metcalf and Seney got up and walked the town nntil day light. They told Bartley of their experience, and this amiable judge eald he had spent a very pleasant night, slept wen, ana connaeiu there were no bugs in his bed. How could they complain to that most agreeable and jolly landlord, who was all smiles, with a big bottle of taLsey bitters within call at the slightest intimation. They couldn't, and resolved to try the bed once more. It was the same, only additional battalions of bed-bngs had made their ap pearance. With a leap, Metoalf and Beney sprang from the bed. VlBu't it strange," said Seney, "that there are no bugs in Bartley's bed, for see how peacefully he is spending the night." "D-n strange," said Metoalf, "but let's go and examine the Judge." They lift ed the blanket that spread over Bartley, and nnd he was ftomnletslv oovered with bugs. "Such a d d hide," said Metoalf, "would preserve a gun-boat under fire. Wake np, Tom, you're the baggiest bagger I ever saw." Mo response; but a peaoefnl snore told but too plainly how comfortable the eminent jurist was enjoying his rest. "I'll 6x him," said Metoalf.

I lost much sleep and rest, and often I was com pelled from sheer exhaustion to sit down dur ing the day to obtain some repose. But as soon as I did so I felt that numb sensation come over my bands and feet, and I rocked violently in my chair to driv it airsy, but frequently to no avail. "One day my son, who was keeping drug store at the time, brought me home some of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People and advised me to take them for my heurt trouble.

As the warm weather comes on the battle over root beer is reopened. To those who have already mastered the subject, the renewed questions year by year become very tiresome. While they indicate, that the most of the world ''is lying in ignorance, and that some ari not ignorant but - still lie, yet they also indicate that there is a somewhat general awakening- on the subject of what summer drinks, or so called temperance drinks, have alcohol as an , ingredient and what have not. Again and again The Union Signal has answered questions and given analyses. But as yet even church pa pers have not been deterred from ad vertising alcobolic7 drinks. Personal letters have, been written to many of them by our constituency, and in some cases the replies have been forwarded, to us, with entreaties that we do something to mitigrate the evil. We have now before us a sample reply from a prominent church paper pub lished in Chicago, wherein the writer says: "We have your letter in re gard to the subject of root beer, and thank you for the frank and kindly expression of your views. We made careful inquiry before accepting the advertisement, and were assured that there was nothing more intoxicating or likely to lead to the use of intoxi cating beverages in the article than there would be, for example, in the uae of Buch effervescing drinks as so da water or a seldlna powder. The lact that it is told freely by grocers without a license indicates that it is not classed, alcoholic by the gov- eminent. Is there not dang er of leading to the excess which we fear by tabooing harmless things as well a4 by using questionable things?" eta In answer to the last we say "No," emphatically. It is not the people who do not purchase any of the various so- called harmless drinks, that are the onos to fall into the habit of baying intoxicating ones. The danger line is approached from the other direc tion, and it is often crossed as an un known line because so many of these drinks do contain a certain per cent. of alcohol. At the same time there is no reason why temperance people should not have their cooling, refresh inir and wholesome drinks, even the pure juice of the grape, un fermented The necessity in every case being, to be sure that they are pure, that they do not contain alcohol. The writer of the letter quoted says he was assured that there was nothing intoxicating in the ingredients. Here in lies the fallacy. The materials when sold may have no more alcohol in them than apples or grapes, but put them together according to the direc tions for making the beer and alcohol will be formed. It takes but a slight knowledge of chemistry to know that sugar and water fermented with yeast form alcohol. We would advise hon est doubters to make the beer accord ing to directions and'to haveitanlyz ed. The chemist need not be an ex pert; a good, high school teacher will probably serve the purpose.

NOT A STITCH OF CLOTHING liEFT ON THE BOD'S. The Infuriated Beast Inflicted Awful Injuries Thrice Shot Before It Was Brought to Grass. Specialty the Bce.l . Bowlino Green, May 27. Martin Myers, aged 63, a well-to-do farmer, residing on the pike, about three and one-half miles south of Perrysburg, met a horrible death last evening. About 6 o'clock he started from his home to a pasture to drive in the cows, and when near the pasture he was attacked by a ferocious bull own ed by a neighboring farmer. Nobody witnessed the unequal combat and it was half an hour or so later when one of Myers' sons, who had started out to Bee what was keeping the old man, came upon the bull, which was still stamping and goring at the prostate form of the farmer. The maddened animal would not be driven away and it became necessary to shoot it. Three bullets were lodg ed in it before the beast was brought to grass. The unfortunate man had evident ly been dead some time when his rel atives reached the scene. Every stitch of clothing hai been torn off by the bull, the shoes alone remaining intact. Not a portion of Myers' body but what had met the cruel horns and hoofs of the animal and a truly ghastly sight was presented.

St Louis Republic J Dave Vuiioe, lb' years old, a ma larial patient at the City hospi af is blessed far beyond the average mor tal in the ties of blood. He is much befarailied. In fact, though Dave is acquainted with most of his brothers and sisters, there are two or three to whom he has never received an intro duction. When it is known that the children of his father, a wealthv farm er and horse trainer in Breckinridge county, Ky., numbered at last reports 39, this circumstance will hot seem remarkable. The elder Vititoe has been three times married. . His oldest son is 17 years of age. That is also the age of his present wife, the mother of Dave by whom he has had 22 children. There are 13 children younger than Dave. Dave's private opinion is that the total number of children is 40, as he has not heard from home for some time, Of this immense family, 27 child ren, according to Dive's best recollec tion, are now alive. Just how tnanv are boys and how many girls he is not able to say, but he is convinced that the boys outnumber the girls considerably. All the boys except the very little chaps are earning their own living, though Dave says the old man is in a position to support them all should it become necessary. Most of them are jockeys or horse trainers, having inherited the father's love of horseflesh and having, as Dave says, "grown up with the colts in the sta ble."
