1607. THE ADVOCATE AND NEWS. There the helpless creatures were left to Buffer the awful agony of being stung to death. San Francisco Call. Senator Vest's Eulogy on Dogs. As told by Walter Wellman in Chi cago Times-Herald: Some years ago Mr. Vest was down In Missouri to try a law suit. Another case, a dog case, was on the docket ahead of him, and he had to wait until this was disposed of. One of the lawyers in the dog case asked "Vest if he wouldn't help their side, and the Senator said he would. So he was paid a retaining fee of $250 by the plaintiff and the trial went on. Voluminous evidence was introduced to show that the defendant had shot plain tiff's dog In malice and quite as much to prove that the dog was vicious and had attacked the defendant. Then the lawyers made (their addresses to the court, going over the evidence with great thoroughness. All this time Senator Vest sat with his 'big round head burled without saying a word. He seemed to be asleep most of the time. "Vest," remarked his associate coun sel, "it is now our turn to close. You do it." "No," said the Senator. "You know more about the case than I do. You finish it up." "But you must do something to earn your fee or our client will be sore." So Vest rose from his chair, etraight- J 11.. . 1,1. nn, lutlrltJ first one juror and then another In the face till he hod spent several minutes in making a round of the twelve good men and true, and then began: "Gentlemen of the Jury The best friend a man has In this world may turn against him and become his enemy. His son or daughter that he has reared with loving care may prove ungrateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us, those whom we trust with our happiness and our good name, may become traitors to (heir faith. The money that a man has he may lose. It flies away from him, perhaps when he needs it most. A man's reputation may be sacrificed in a mo ment of ill-considered action. The peo ple who are prone to fall upon their knees to do us honor when success is with us may be the first to throw the stone of malice when failure settles its cloud upon our heads. The one abso lutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog. "Gentlemen of the jury," the Senator continued, "a man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, In health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow, and the snow drives fiercely, If only he may be near his master's side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of the pauper master as if he were a prince. When all other friends desert he remains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces he is as constant in his love as the sun in its Journey through the heavens. If for tune drives the master forth and outcast in the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying him to guard against danger, to fight against his ene mies. And when the last scene of all comes, and death takes the master In its embrace, and his body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there by his grave-side will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad, but open in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even in death." Then Vest sat down. This remarkable speech he had delivered in a law voice without a gesture. No reference had he made to the merit of the case in hand. Not a word had he uttered about the evi dence. When he finished judge and jury were seen to have tears in their eyes. - The jury filed out and in a minute or two returned to the court room. The plaintiff had asked for J200 damages. The verdict gave him $500 and several of the jurymen wanted to hang the defend ant t The "Pleasant Pellets" gently stlmu- late and Invigorate the liver to throw oft biliousness, and tone up the stomach to secrete the digestive juices and over come dyspepsia, rne entire digestive or alimentary tract is put in motion in the regular, steady way of nature and health.

Financial and Mercantile Examiner for May 1: The methods of business have been completely revolutionized by the various inventions which have been put out and which are now a part of the lndispcnsible requisites for the carrying on of modern business operations. The old slow-going methods are being rapidly discarded, and everything Is pushed with lightning rap idity. The writing machine is taking Its place along with the telegraph and tele phone as one of the necessary modern equipments for the rapid transaction of business, and its commercial value de pends upon its ability to meet the in creasing demand for greater speed, effi ciency, durability and ease of operation. What satisfied the professional and busi ness world a few years ago will not meet the demand of to-day. Every improve ment that human Ingenuity can devise must be utilized to aid the operator In turning off the greatest amount of per fect work with the least expenditure of time and effort The invention and con struction of the Duplex Typewriter fully meet all these requirements. It utilizes all the capabilities of the operator by permitting an even, continuous and sim ultaneous movement of both hands like the rhythmic movement of the hands on the piano keyboard, permitting the con tinuous printing of two letters of a word at the same Instant Instead of but one. This operation increases the speed fto considerably that 242 words a minute has been attained, which is over 100 words more than is possible on any other ma chine, and enables tho operator to write from dictation and saving the necessity of copying from short-hand notes. Three years of service has demonstrated the pre-eminence of the Duplex over all other writing machines as the fastest in the world, the most durable and eas iest to learn and operate. The arrange ment of the mechanism is such that there are two centers or points of con tact between type and paper, and the alignment is so perfect that the letters are equal to those printed on the print ing press. The elTectlve type stroke, which is producted In the most scientific manner, enables the operator to achieve marvelous results in manifolding, which, is a great advantage. This machine meets and satisfies the increasing de mand for a typewriter where very rapid work is demanded and where writing from rapid dictation Is required. It Is the progressive man's ideal. It is manu factured by the Duplex Typewriter Co., of Des Moines, Iowa, the officers of which are well known reliable men of excellent business qualifications. They make also the Jewett Typewriter, which is a single center machine, embodying all the me chanical advantages of the Duplex ex cept its double features. It Is designed for those who prefer a cheaper machine for use In offices where great speed Is not specially In demand. It is the result of large practical experience, thoroughly made In every detail, and of the best material. This, as well as the Duplex, combines strength with prompt and easy action. The use of these machines will verify the claims made for them. t A recent visit to the factory In Des, Molnea shows that they have one of the best equipped typewriter plants in the country. Their orders are far In excess of their present capacity, but we learn that they are rapidly increasing their force. It looks good in these depressed times to see a factory behind with Its orders and running far In the night. Their typewriters go to all parts of the country, their largest trade being in the Eastern 8tates. For information regarding the Duplex or Jewett Typewriter address Duplex Typewriter Co. t 111 E.
