The present situatioa among the politicians of both parties has no ex act parallel in history. The Democrats seem to be at sea without star or compass. Mr. Cleveland refuses to be a candidate for the fourth time, yet some of the leading Democrats think he is the only man in their' party who could lead them to success. Of course, if the convention is stampeded for Mr. Cleveland, he is too patriotic to absolutely decline the nomination. Hearst would like to have the nomination, but the rank and file of the party do not seem to want him. Gorman's opposition to the canal has weakened him in the south, Olney is too far east and Judge Parker is not very well known. It begins to look like Mr. Bryan will have to be the sacrifice. It is different in the Republican party. Nearly every state in the Union has Republican Presidential timber and only one man mentioned as a pos sible candidate against President Roosevelt. This one man is Senator Han na of Ohio. Mr. Hanna has just announced that he has sent out 2,000 personal letters,, positively declining to be a candidate. This leaves the field open toMr. Roosevelt, who will undoubtedly be his own successor. The Editor of the Item is not a very good parliamentarian or he would not want others to prove a negative. . He says there was a compro mise between the Unthank and Thayer forces, but the simple assertion is not enough. He owes it to the party, to which he claims to belong, to prove it. In Saturday evening's Item, there was a double column editor ial of the coarest kind of stuff, but no reply to the questions. The Item is up against it and the public knows it, and, moreover, the public will not be satisfied with "you are another" and "it is none of your business.' ' On New Yeary's day the Czar of Russian said: "I desire and intend to do all in my power to mantain peace in the far. east.". This is the same monarch that proposed, not long ago, a universal peace. All this sounds well, and, persons who see only the surface of . things, are pleased with these propositions. The real fact is, Russia wants peace with Man churia and is keeping her powder dry. . Japan would like to have peace, but is, at the same time, preparing for war. " Jerusalem is said to be one of the cleanest cities in the world, because every one sweeps in front of his own door. . The citizens of St. Paul, Minn., have one of the cleanest cities in the United States, and, in addi tion to their own efforts, the health officers compel persons who spit on the sidewalks to take out their handkerchiefs and mop ,up the places they have befouled. If this practice is continued St. Paul ought speedily to become the Mecca of decent people. The Evansville Democrats are waiting an explanation of why the Hon. "William R. Hearst did not appear at the recent meeting there when Mr. Bryan spoke. These Democrats are in the same position as the Wayne County Republicans who would like to know what became of the compro mise in the district chairmanship contest in the Sixth district. No one seems to know about the compromise except the editor of the Item and he refuses to explain. It is well to be absent-minded if you can only forget your troubles. The editor of the Item cannot forget. He is on record and feels that he is a little pinched. Neither vituperation nor wit will get him out of the clutches of his own statements. The man who laughs at his own jokes doesn't always find that the -world laughs with him. The same may be said of an editor who flings a little dirt instead of proving a proposition which he asserts to be true. COTTAGE (GROVE Mrs. William Toler and little son, Raymond, have about recovered from their recent severe illness. Rev. J. A. Ward-of College Corner spent Thursday with the members of his congregation who reside here. Mr. and Mrs. II. Clark were guests of Scott Heard and wife Thursday.

Sitting alone in the evening, When the tolls of the day were done Watching the shadows fast fading, From the last low rays of the sun. My heart grew sad and lonely, As a thought came suddenly to me, Tomorrow the parting of loved ones, Tomorrow the parting must be. Then thoughts of a new day dawnng, Of a land so free from care. My thoughts were lifted toward hea ven, And low I whispered a prayer. God of earth and of Heaven, Thy power almighty to save, Ruler of land and of ocean, All power of death and the grave. Thus I sat in the silent, A joy stole into my brain, A thought of a new day dawning, Beyond nil sorrow and pair, -,-t . 31 21 advance. .1 50 . 25 . 3 00 Beyond all watching and waiting, Beyond all shadow and gloom, Beyond all parting and meeting, Beyond all shades of the tomb. Away to that new day dawning, Away to the land of God, Away to the land that awaits us Beyond the clay and the clod. Away to that grand reunion, Never to part any more, We'll meet in the new day dawning, Away on the golden shore. So free from all sorrow and sighing, So free from waiting and lone, We'll meet in the new day dawning, We'll soon be gathered at home. Home, sunshine and heaven, Home, heaven and rest, No sorrow, no parting in heaven, Awaiting the blessed and blest. Mrs. L. Shrawder. State of Ohio, City of Toledo, ' Lucas County, ss. Frank J.

Dr. Wilbur Fi Sheridan is very well known in this city, having married Miss Effie Lamar, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Lamar. Our people are always interested in Mr. Sheridan's successes. The evening Post of Louisville, Kentucky, has the following in regard to Mr. Sheridan's new call and resignation: At a special meeting of the church Board, held last night in the pastor's study at Trinity Methodist church, the Rev. Dr. Wilbur Sheridan, who has been identified with the pastor ate for the past' two years and a half, tendered his resignation, announcing that he had accepted the pastorate of Mt. Vernon Place ; Methodist church of Baltimore, Md. Dr. Sheridan's resignation was "reluctantly accepted, and he will leave to enter on the dis charge of his new duties on April 1. It is not yet known who will sue ceed Dr. Sheridan, as the appoint ment must come from the Bishop of the conference. A committee will be appointed tomorrow to confer with the Bishop with a view to securing a new pastor. ' The announcement of Dr. Sheri dan's resignation has caused pro found regret among the members of his congregation. During his service as pastor of Trinity Church diet has labored faithfully in the interpUpf his followers, and has infused his zeal into every undertaking which the church has put on foot. His broad minded, scholarly sermons have at tracted the attention not only of his own people in his own church, but of prominent divines in many sections of the country. "' The Mt. Vernon Place Methodist Church, of Baltimore, is one of the most noted Methodist churches in the United States, having occupied a front rank for more than thirty-five years. It is in the heart of the city, and has in, its field more than 8,000 students of the various colleges. The scope of the work is much broader than in the loeal field, and Dr. Sheri dan thinks that the offer was such that he could not afford to refuse it, although, regretting sincerely to leave his local congregation. The invitation has been accepted subject, to the approval by the Bish ops of ' the Baltimore and Kentucky conferences, but there is. no doubt but that the selection will be approv ed. The Bishop of Baltimore has al ready placed the seal of his approba tion on the choice of the conference in selecting Dr. Sheridan. Dr. Sheridan came to Louisvill? from Saginaw, Mich., in 1901. Dur ing his pastorate Trinity Church has advanced in membership more than three hundred. EDSSIM JEW How he Pans'outasan Agri culturalist. (Chicago Record-Herald.) The total Hebrew immigration into the United States during the last fis cal year was 76,203. Of these but 40 gave their occupation as farmers and but 334 as farm laborers. Exactly two-thirds of all the Hebrew immi grants remained in New York City, there to swell the ranks of sweat shop workers and common laborers.. Could these immigrants be taken away from city slums and out on to farms, and could they be made suc cessful bread-winners in that way, a great service would undoubtedly be done them. It is the general belief, however, that the Jews have so long been kept away from the soil that they are no longer fitted to be farm ers, and that the agricultural exis tence for them must be set aside as a dream impossible to realize. Now it happens that two-thirds of our Hebrew immigrants last year came from Russia, and that all the rest, with the exception of a few hun dreds, came either from Austria Hungary or Roumania, where they had been under conditions closely similar to those of the Russian Jews. Authoritative testimony as to the ca pacity pf the Jews for agriculture in the lands from which they came is consequently of htgh interest. We have something of that knid in a se ries of reports which the governors of the fifteen Russian provinces in which Jews are permitted to reside recently made to tha ministry of the interior. Seven of these reports dis cussed the Jew as an agriculturalist, three unfavorably and four favora bly. The Governor if Minsk stated concisely, for example, that the Jew ish agricultural laborer differed from the Christian only in respect to his religion. The Governor of Ekatert noslaff declared that where the Jew OIL FOR THE BODY You can't lose an atom without feeling it. The body is like an engine, a watch, a machine ; must be kept in good order to run right. That's the reason Scott's Emulsion is so successful in all wasting diseases. It feeds, nourishes and strengthens when ordinary food won't. Doctors say Scott's Emul sion is the best nourishment 'for those who are not as well as they should be. We use the whole oil in Scott's Emulsion because the great reputation of cod liver oil as a food and medicine was made by using it in this way. Substitutes in the shape of wines, cordials, extracts, etc., should be carefully avoided. c We'll send you a sample free upon request. SCOTT & BOWNE, 409 Pearl Street, New Yoric had failed it was because he had not been given a chance. He urged the government , to organize its agricul tural colonies better, and to give the Jews larger holdings of land. The Governor of Kherson, who is strongly anti-Semitic in his opinions, enter tained no doubt as to the capacity of the Jews to cultivate the land, and thought that their efforts should be encouraged. -Of the governors who gave an ad verse opinion one thought the Jew wasac omplete failure, another thought he was not sufficiently inter ested in agricultural work, and the third contented himself with giving statistics. The favorable reports are said to show much greater evidence of thorough investigation than the mfavorable reports show. DIVORCES Granted to People in High Life. , (By Associated Press.)

Pocket Furnaces, Curious hand furnaces are used In China during the winter months, chief ly in the north, when the fire, in place of being in the house, as we have it, is carried about the person beneath the thickly padded cotton garments or in the hand. At times it is placed be neath the chair on which one is seated. This contrivance, resembling the char coal pans formerly used before the days of the pit coal by the Hertford shire straw plaiters, was first intro duced to our notice when resting at a village in the Fukien province, which, before we 'had investigated the cause, we noted as a place remarkable for the deformity of its inhabitants, old men and women with strange swellings pro jecting In the most unaccountable places. Our speculations were, how ever, speedily set at rest and the mat ter satisfactorily explained by an old gentleman, who removed his greatcoat and disclosed a small copper furnace secured round his waist with a baud and neatly covered with basket work. This artificial niodeof beating the body is only resorted to in time of extreme cold, as on ordinary occasions the peo ple deem their thick clothing a suffi cient protection during winter. Golden Fenny. A Quaint People. The heart of Brittany never changes, but its face is rapidly losing many of Its prominent characteristics with the leveling influence of the French repub lic. It is only far out of the beaten track, now, or on special occasions, like fetes, that you see universally the cos tumes and customs of the old Armori can peninsula. Only an hour's journey from Quimper, the modernized chief town of Finistere. and you are among the Bigoudinos, a people whose dress suggests the Eskimos and Chinese whose faces are strongly Mongolian in type and who in luuu.ige, customs and beliefs seem to have no relation with the rest of France. More and more the picturesque problem they present is coming to attract attention. Artlsta, students and tourists alike are fasci nated by it. Andre Saglio in Century. OHIO'S EMI.

To many women an oriental raz Is simply that and nothing more. Their the various importati6ria.T.i:ich ia col oring, con ventioha in design, they ar supposed to be equally suitable to all styles and decorative periods. Interior decorators are wisr fortunately. The magnificence of a Louis XIV. room Is best enhanced by the richly woven rugs with medallion centers that come from Tabriz. The conventional scrolls and exquisite floral traceries of' the Ker mansha rugs fit best Into a Louis XV. room, while rugs In delicate pastel col ors harmonize best with the decorative scheme' of a room which abounds In gay brocaded upholsteries, gilding and buhl, says the Philadelphia - Public Ledger; Householders who have bowed to the popular fad for mission 'furniture as well as arts and crafts designs should select the rough, uneven rugs and dra peries woven by the more barbaric Kurds and Turcomans. The more the rugs lack smoothness and convention ality the greater will be their adapta bility to the austere simplicity of the mission room. ' That autocratic Russia should con tribute the rugs that best harmonize with the republican beauty of a colo nial house seems like a paradox. Yet the most appropriate rugs for such a uouse are tne uaguestans ana me Turcomans coming from the mountains of the Caucasus and from the districts near the Caspian sea. Where much mahogany furniture is used a choice from the dark oriental rugs from Bok hara and Samarkand will prove the most artistic. .a ; .. y ..- . ;.-.;.(... The ArtJ Datable Bed. Probably it Is not the most serious problem of life, but it is nfJeast one of the little worries of a great m-any peo ple, to get a bed that will fit. Doubtless there, are tens of thousands who never gave this matter thought, but there are hundreds who have, and some of these may, have literally spent sleepless nights in contemplation of the ques-;: tion. ' ;. ' ., ' In the first place, when a person's muscles "have relaxed after he assumes a reclining position he is much longer WHEN CHA2?GIi;a LENGTH. than he was tall when he stood on his feet, and this discrepancy has been more than responsible for the failure of a purchaser to properly judge the size of a bed, so that when he comes to use it his head butts into the head board and his feet are securely wedged against the footboard. In this way he is deprived of the true restf ulness of repose, as a contracted position is not only comfortable, but unhygienic. The new adjustable bed can . be lengthened or shortened within a given range and all such diflieulties as have been described eliminated. Lemon Cake. An old fashioned lemon cake Is made as follows: Take one pound of sifted, flour, one of fine granulated sugar, three-fourths of a pound of butter, seven eggs and juice and grated rind of two lemons. Beat the butter, sugar and egg yolks together a long time, as you would poundcake, as no baking powder is used, and it must depend on lightness of eggs and thorough beating or air into tne Datter ror ngntness. Grate the lemon lightly, taking off only the yellow part. Soak this in the Juice while beating butter, sugar and eggs. Then strain through a fine sieve into the mixture. Add the flour very slowly, beating briskly, and last of all fold in the whites of the eg.?s, beaten to a stiff white froth. This cake keeps well. How to Roast Quail. Clean your quails, remove heads and feet, arrange the joints, wrap each bird in a covering of thinly sliced pork, place in a coo!;:ng pan just large enough to hold them. Cover with boil ing water, a little sprinkling of salt and pepper, then place over a hot lire ten minutes. Remove the pork, dry each bird with a cloth, spread all well with butter and roast brown in a very hot oven, baste frequently with melted butter, strain the broth in which they were broiled, mix with it an equal quantity of melted currant jelly. 'Serve the birds very hot on a separate dish. Tass currant jelly. Y Prenervingr Parsley. "A Swedish "woman gave a new Idea for preserving parsley for winter use which I will repeat for the benefit of others. Seeing the parsley in my gar den, she begged for a bunch, explain ing that she had just used the last of her year's supply. 1 questioned her, and she told me that she always pick ed a laiTc; supply in summer, put it in a. jar with plenty of salt sprinkled on each layer, and it kept perfectly and was mach nicer for soups, etc., than when dried in the usual way.
