Conventiou Held at N'apoleon, Juno 15, 10, 187. Itesohed, lhat we are unalterably true to the great work of suppressing the manufacture, sale, importation, exportation and transportation of in toxicating liquors. We emphatically declare against "taxation without representation, "and the recognition of sex in citizenship, and in the name of right and justice and eaualitv we pledge ourselves to make everv possible effort to secure the enfranchisement of woman, That our W. C. T. U. women wear the white ribbon on all occasions as a badge of purity and loyalty At our county fairs shows have been admitted that were acknowledg ed immoral in character by the very fact that only men and boys were ad mitted. As women we do most earn' estly protest against the admission of anv entertainment of a character unfit for us to see. We believe that it is as great a sin to deule the thoughts and imaginations of one sex as of the other, and while we value our own purity too much to visit such shows, we value equally the puri ty of our sons, husbands and brothers, and we most earnestly entreat that the authorities governing thil matter shall recognise their responsibility in protecting the dignity of true man hood. We beiieve that a great inteiest should be aroused in the work of the Purity Department, reaching, as it does, into the homes and effecting in dividual hearts and lives. We will, therefore, watch the liter ature that comes into our homos, and the pictures displayed on our streets, and we heartily endorse the action of Congress in suppressing the display of pictures of prize fights, that our boys may not be educated in prize fighting. Resolved, That we extend to the Napoleon our Bincere the cordial welcome to citizens of thanks for their homes giving to the members of the 14th District W, C. T. U. Conven tion ; to the pastors and trustees of the Methodist and Presbyterian churches who have so freely opened their hous es of worship for our use; to all those who have contributed to our happi ness by decorations and music, and especially to the flower Mission for their beautiful flowers, and the L. T. L. for beautiful songs and enthusiasm in meeting us at the trains; to the lo cal union in their indefatigable efforts to make this convention a success; to the entertainment committee and the janitors of the churches for faithful services. Plan of Work. That we favor the reversing of dis trict and county dues that more or ganizing may be done through the counties. That we spare no pains in oganiz ing L. T. L's. whenever possible. That we make a specialty of our Losing Flesh You naturally lose flesh In the summer and running down Is so easy. You get a little weaker each day without hard ly noticing it. There Is loss of appetite, headache, weakness of the muscles, disturbed sleep, weakness of memory, and these are the beginning of nervous prostration. Iron and tonics and bitters may afford some temporary relief, but what you need is a food for body, brain and nerves. ScotE&miitsicn, of Cod-liver Oil with the Hy pophosphltes, furnishes just the nourishment needed for those who are run down and pale and thin and weak.

Frank B. Trout Tells a Reporter c! now 6Us Dsugfeier's Life Was Saved. Ail Parents Should ba Inier ested ia This Karrative. Fmm Ute Evening rjsinr as a nnclrat for his investigation the rumor that the life of the daughter of rranfc . Irout, well known in Detroit, Mich., real estate cirrles, had been saved, a reporter called on Mr. Trout at his office, 1U3 Uriswold Avenue. Sir. Trout showed some hesitancy in giving his opinion for publication, but finally laid: "Circnra stances ana a father's love for his child forced me to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People, bat not until tiie whole medical profession had exhausted their skill. At the age of fourteen we had to take our daughter from school owing to her health, lieforo this she had been in the best of health, happy and in the best ot spirits. She began to fall away and became pale and languid. She was so weak that she would fall down in a faint every time she tried to walk unsupported. The best of physicians attended her, hut she continued to frow weaker and seemed to be gradually fading away. " When she was fifteen she weighed only ninety poumlj. and the doctors said it was anxmia. Several physicians said she might outerow it, but that it would no doubt ter minate in consumption. No doctor we hod could help her, and we concluded ourselves, we must lose our child, as she was growing weaker every day. " We had tried all the well-known reme dies, and finally nhout a vcar n!o I bought box of Dr. Williums' Pink Pills for Pule People and took them home. That day I had read of a case about the same as my daughter's, and decided to uiva them a trial, though I must confess I did not have much faith. Ilcfore she had taken all of the firt box we noticed a clm:itfe for the setter, sue, However, rained strength daily teachers' county institutes to empha size our scientific temperance educa tional work. That it is the sanse of this conven tion that the 14th District donate one dollar to the W. C. T. TJ. day at Lakeside. That we urge upon the young peo ples societies of Christian Endeavor and Epworth League the appointment of a committee to prepare a program and to hold meetings once a quarter in the interests of temperance reform. We urge the importance of moth ers' meetings, emphasizing health and hygiene. Piaspectfully submitted. Mrs. H. C. Tubbs, Mrs. S. A. Strother, Coarcitteo on resolutions and plan f work. Convention Notes. The president of Henry county spoke encouragingly of the increase of temperance sentimont in this coun ty, called Napoleon and its union the Hub" around which the rest of the county revolved, and said the North west and Signal deserved a vote of thanks for giving the W. C. T. U. so generously space in their columns. The L. T. L's. were enthusiastic ov. er the convention, and met morning and afternoon trains, with drums beating and banners flying. Mother" Strother, of Findlay, was a constant inspiration. Although in her seventy-ninth year, she is full of live and vigor and to . listen to her 'Memories of the Crusade" put life into the most faint hearted May she live to be one hundred and be with us at every convention. Mrs. Felarice Hixson captured the convention by her womanly grace as well as the keenness and logic of her lecture. She is herself a mo3t beautiful il lustration of the ideal "New Woman." The music throughout was fine, and the recitations most highly ap preciated. In our own individual opinion the "School of Methods" was the finest thing of the entire convention, and we would that every man and woman in the three counties had heard it. It gave us all a better idea of the wonderful results possible in the dif ferent departments of Vi. 0. T. U. work. Judgment Against Crocker. Cleveland, June 16. A cognovit Judgment for $60,000 was taken by de fault by the Mercantile National bank upon Hon. T. D. Crocker, the father of Mrs. Laura Crocker-Acklin, whose Delaware divorce attracted wide at tention. The property which secured the note is heavily mortgaged in other quarters. Another Claimant to liarnato's Fortune. Cleveland, June 16. A woman lirlns in this city claims to be the legitimate daughter of Barney Barnato, the South African diamond king who suicided. Her name is Mrs. Blackman and she will lay claim to her portion of his vast fortune. Mrs. Blackman claims to be a daughter by his first wife. Senator Mantle thinks that the best way to secure protection for the sheep-growers of Montana is to get Booss Hanna well scared. It is easy for those at a distance to condemn those whose indignation leads them to lynch a raper, but nine tenths of those who condem would with the same circumstances and sur roundings become lynchers.

" When she had taken two boxes she was strong enough to leave her bed, and in less than six months was something like-herself. To-day she is entirely cured, and is a big, strong, healthy girl, weighing 130 pounds, and has never had a sick day since. "I do not think she uses them now, though I always keep them in the house. My wife and I have recommended them to our neighbors, and sent a few to another young girl who seems to be in the same con dition as my daughter. Had not Dr. Wil liams' Pink Pills saved my daughter's lifts, I would not recommend them to any one. I know they do all and more than is claimed for them, and I am glad to recommend them to the world. I know Pr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People saved my daughter' life, and that is enough for me." F. B. Trout.

Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People contain, in a condensed form, all the ele ments necessary to give new life and rich ness to the blood and restore shattered nerves. They are also a specific for troubles peculiar to females, such as suppressions, irregulari ties and all forms of weakness. In men they effect a radical cure in all eases arising fi -ra mental worry, overwork or excesses of what ever nature.

TESLA BELIVES TIIE GIGAN TIC SCHEME IS PKACTI CABLE. Planning Apparatus to Utilize His New Discoveries In Com municating With Other Planets. kw York, June 14 The New York Journal and Advertieer gays that Nicola Testa believes that the day is not far distant, as science measures time, when a serious at tempt may be made to transmit in telligence to the planet Mars, 1 he belief is the direct out growth of his discovery that the earth is the greatest conductor of telegraphic messages, and that news, and even power, may be conveyed from one part of the the globe to another with out the use of wires. The incalculable forces stored in the earth's bosom he lias learned to chain, and chaining it has learned how mighty it is. It is sufficient, he believes, to carry our messages across the space which separates the worlds auu science stands nuon the verse ot revelation which at some time in the fntnra wi'l result in linking the whole firmament in a chain ot thought. lesla has a scientist's faith. So firmly does he believe that the intelligence of other worlds is akin to that of our that he con ceives and outlines a theory of rudimentary signals upon which a code of communica tion may be built up. He is elate. "I firmly believe," he said to a Journal reprtsantative who visited him at nis laboratory, '"that this transmission is immediately possible, sud on a large scale." "And have you faith that the communica tion may be extended to the stars r" ONLY SYSTEM THAT IS POSSIBLE. "I cr 'fer to nhrase mv answer this war That if it ever is achieved it will be by this means tne utilization of tne statio electri city of the earth. There is no other system oy which it is possible, serious considers. tiou has been given by scientists to the scheme of signaling by means of enormous lights, but what that is not, to my thinking, practicable. Whyr Uecanse there is no means of concentrating it upon any given point. "A light might be genora'ed which would seem enormous, and which would in fact be enormous, tint theoithculty is that in its journey to Mars that light would be scatter ed, diffused so that it would fall over the greatest circumference of the planet. 8o in receiving any light signal which might be transmitted to us we wouldr be practcally helpless. Of course we might employ a mirror twenty feet square, tor example. Bat that would be infinitesimal compared with the whole area over which the light must fall. Any concentrating agent repre senting only a millionth or a hundred mil lionth of the whole area would be useless. ' "But a sound wave can t6 sent in motion. conveying a definite direction, and the force whici can be summoued for such service is stupendous." "And do yon actually believe that Buch communication is possible?" xes, i do, nnd it is plain that the teller is not an uncommon one among scientific men. Aside from popular and imaginative writing, the serious essays of scientists and their studies looking toward the perfection of devices give proof that the belief has be- some concrete and practical." ATTEMPT WILL 0ON BE MADE. "Do yon not believe, gauging the future steps by past progress in science, that an ettempt at communication with Mars will be made within a comparatively short time, as time is connted in human progress?" "Yon mean a eerioua attempt?" "Yes." "Yd6, 1 do. And that point of the ratio of human progress is a very interesting one, too. One upon which I began many years ago to make mathematical calculatoin. I was curious to know at what rate soience moved." "The projression mnst be geometrical?" "Vastly more than that," answered the inventor. "It is more nearly like the multi plication of germ life. It is almost in oredibie of carbon. Eooh for example, the baoteriaof carbon. Take one of millions produoes millions. It preys upon organio inattet and destroys it, but, fortunately, in so doing destroys itself. That is the only safeguard that living beings- have. If it were not for that we would be utterly de stroyed. It is the same way with races. A race grows in civilization and power until at last its over-civilization weakens it and some barbarian people oome in and destroy it. But the seed of that civilization left be hind is taken np and developed nntil the barbarian himself becomes, over -civilized and in his turn fails. So history goes on forever, bnt the sum total of all these ac complishments furnishes u3 the rate of human advancement, and it is enomons. "It is npon the result of that calculation that f base the declaration of my belief that a serious attempt at transfer of intelligence to Mars will be made within a short time. Of course I mean 'short' in the soientifio sense. Bnt I would not undertake to say how short or how long that time wilt pro bably be." But it is 6H8y task to read, in the enthu siasm of Tesla npon this appealing question, the hope the half conviction that in his life time the crowing triumph of science will be achieved end speech journey across infinite space. Man that is born ot woman is of few days and full of microbes. The moment he hits the earth he starts for the grave, and the longer he trav els the faster he goes. His visible re ward for long days of labor and nights of walking the floor with a teething baby is an epitaph he can't read and a tomb stone he doesn't want. In the first of the seven ages of man he's licked, in the last he is neglected and in all the others he's a target for the lying meddlesome mischief-maker a wo man who won't attend to her own business. If he does not marry his first love he'll always wish he had, and if he does he'll always wish he hadn't. Yet no man ever follows freedom's flag for patriotism (and a pension) with half the enthusiasm that he will trail the red. the white and blue that constitutes the banner of female beauty. He will brave the lion in bis den, face tne booming cannon, tread the ocean from be neath his feet and yet will tremble like a half-frozen ecrer-sucking dog when called to account by his wife for his cussedness.
