The multitudes who use this standard arti cle know that it is many hundred percent better than other cements, for which similar claims are made, but a great many do not know why. The simple reason is that Mr. Major uses the best materials ever discov ered and other manufacturers do not use them, because they are too expensive and do not allow large profits. Mr. Major tells us one of the elements of his cement costs J3.75 a pound, and another costs $2.65 a gallon, while a large share of the so-called cements and lluid glue upon tbe market are nothing more than sixteen-cent glue, dissolved In mortar or citric acid, and, in some cases, al tered slightly in color and odor by the addi tion of cheap and useless materials. Major's cement retails at fifteen cents and twenty-five ceuts a bottle, and when a dealer tries to sell a substitute you can depend upon t that his only object is to make larger protJV The prollt on Major's cement is as much as any dealer cuKht to make on any cement. Andthis is doubly true in view of the fact that eacb dealer gets his share of the beneiit of Mr. Major's advertising, which now amounts to over foOOO a month, throughout the country. Insist on having Major's. Don't accept any offhand advice from adrugist. Always have a supply of Major's Cements on hana. If you are at all handy (and you will be sure to find that you are a good deal more so than you imagine) you can repair your rubber boots and family shoes, and any other rubber and leather articles, with Major's Kubber Cement and Major's Leather Cement, And yon will be surprised at how many dollars a year you will thus save. If your druggist can't supply you, 1 will be forwarded by mall; either kind.

BONDS ARE VOID. Error la Electric Light Petition Will Neces sitate Another Special Election. JadtreJ.T.

The prop osition submitted to the voter and voted upon December o0, ISM, pro vided for tbe issue of tbe bonds "10 run not to exceed a period of twenty years with tbe privilege of payiD the same at any interest payment period alter ten years from tbe date thereof." The petition to the mayor and council provided that tbe bonds should have a clause inserted therein "giviDg the city the privilepe of paying the principal thereof at any interest payment period. Tbe proposition submitted to the voters also precludes the city from taking up the bonds as specified in the contracts with tbe two banks, as it provides thai the city shall have the right to pay the principal "after ten years from the date thereof." Judge Herrick's opinion was ad dressed to F. A. Amsden, chairman of tbe finance committee of the council. Mayor Kramer wa made acquainted with the facts, and a special meeting of the council was held Thursday to discuss the situation. Acting upon the presumption that another proposition to vote $14,000 electric light bonds will carry, the council that night instructed the city attorney to prepare for circulation a petition calling a special election to vote the bonds and to prepare an alphabetical list of the taxpayers eli gible to sign said petition. The bonds will bear interest not exceeding 5 per cent. The circulation of the petition is left to the finance committee of the council. v The special election will be held about September 1. The completion of the electric light plant, will thus be delayed until January f, 1901, at least.

Doty of Oxford, who was sen tenced to tbe penitentiary by Judge Burnette in 189d for a revolting crime, has been granted a citizenship pardon by Governor Stanley and will belio erated soon. Doty was sentenced to the penitentiary for 21 years, but Governor Leedy cut the sentence dowu and his term is about to expire. Doty's case attracted a great deal of attention. He plead guilty to the charge of assault and asked the len iency of the court, but in passing sen tence upon him, Judge Burnette said: "I only wish the law would permit me to sentence you to the peniten tiary at hard labor for the rest of your life." The gang of M. & K. telephone workmen, who came to Wellington a week ago for tbe announced purpose of "rebuilding" the local system, ap parently came only for the purpose of harassing tbe new telephone com pany, and preventing the completion of the system. The new company had erected poles at the corner if the Wellington National bank and at J. C. Smith's comer, for the purpose of stringing its cable across Washington avtDue. The old company has a pole in front of the bank, and cross-arms ere put on it by the "reconstruc tion" gang acd a lot of dead wires strung to shut out the new compauy's cable. The new company will have to devise a new scheme to get its cib e acrtss Washington avenue. If the two telephone companies were railroad companies, the new company would take an ax and chop tne old company's obstruction down and let tbe other company wait on the su preme court for redress. The meth ods of the M. & K. people are a fair sample 01 wnat all corporations do. Law, the rights of tbe people and common honestv are ignored. "The people be d d" and "What are you going to da about it?" are their mot toes. For years the M. & K. people have charted $3 00 per month for 'phones, lliey now offer them at ureatly reduced rates and are trying by every possible means to shut cut theindependentcompany. It is these same corporations that cry so loudly against dishonest dollars and tbe an archistic Populists. Putting food into a diseased stom- ache is like putting1 money into a pocket with holes The money is lost All its value goes for nothing. When the stomach is diseased, with the . allied organs of digestion and nutrition, the food which is put into it 19 largely lost. When nutriment is not extracted from it. the body is weak and the blood is impoverished Tbe pocket can be mended. The stomach can be cured. That sterling medicine for the stomach and blood, Dr. Pierce's Gold:n Medical Discovery, acts with peculiar promptness and power on the organs of digestion and nutrition. It is a positive cure for almost all disorders of these organs, and cures also such diseases of the heart, blood, liver and other organs, as have their cause in a weak or dis eased condition of the stomach.

"While coming from Chlcr.go Wtelj." salt! a prominent btisinr rutin of New York city to a Mail and Kxpress re porter, "I noticed pmiMur railroad custom which ii.tf resitit u-e consider ably. I happened to be In the last car of the limited when the train stopped In a desolate spot between stations. The rear braketnac. of course, dropped o3 and went down the track with a flag to warn any train that might be fol lowing us. In a moment or two we smarted up again, but minus the brake man. I wondered at this, but was still more surprised later on to see the Bame thing repeated when we were obliged to stop on account of a threat ened hotbox. Upon inquiry I found that this was the custom on fast trains. 'Sometimes, if we have lots of time,' said the conductor, 'we whis tle for the men to come in, but in most cases we leave them to be picked up by the next train, or to walk to the near est station.' " 'But Isn't that rather hard on the men,' I asked. "Oh. It's all part of the business,' he replied. 1 have known of cases where men dropped off In this way were frozen to death, or waylaid by tramps, but the railroads have to make the time, and that's why It Is done. I hare seen trains running with only a conductor aboard them, at times, because the ret of the crew had been left behind in Just this way. " DOGS KILLED BY GAS.

The Chicago Humans society boa at last hit upon a novel but effectual means of disposing of vagrant curs be fore the heat of summer sets in. Thev are being gathered up from tbe streets and asphyxiated by gas, reports the Tribune, falls are responded to bv the Humane society when made by residents or the city who may be both ered by stray dogs. A number of worn en, actuated by humanitarian impulses, are cooperating with the society to gather up the animals left to wander and starve along the thoroughfares. It la largely eke to their repeated re quests for a milder means of destroy lng dogs that the new scheme of ex termination by gas ha3 been brought about. They consider death by shoot lng an snneeessarily painful process. A small metal tank closely waled with a tight cover Is filled with com mon Illuminating gas admitted by a tube. A small aperture In the cover permits the air to be foroed out Into this tank, one at a tims. the dors are dropped, the gas turned on, and in 30 seconds they are unconscious and In less than a minute they are lifeless. Two feet of gas is considered sufficient quantity to kill a dog, and the expenss amounts to practically the same as ths ouiiet. HOLLAND'S TULIP CRAZE. Twelve Acres of City Property Wera Refuied for a Magic Bulb of Rare Variety. "In the year 1634 tbe tulip crow In Holland," writes Clifford Howard 'In Ladies' nome Journal, "became so gTeat that the ordinary industries were neglected. o one wanted to do any thing but raise tulir. A rare sped- men offered for sale called forth ex cited bidding. Everyone was on the lookout for special varieties. It was rumored at one time that there wert but two bulb6 of the Semper Augustus In existence in Holland. One of them was owned by a florist In Haarlem, and the other by a rioaler ki Amster dam. This rumor was sufficient tc arouse the liveliest commotion In tulip circles, and dealers and fanciers hur ried forward with offers to purchase- each one endeavoring to outbkl the other. r The competition became so eager that finally one man offered 12 acres of city property for the Haarlem bulb; but the owner refused to sell. The bulb in Amsterdam was knocked down to the highest bidder for $1,00C in cash, two hordes, a carriage and a set or harness e. total of about $3,000, which in those days was a fabulous sum."

It Is a microbe proof house, built of g'.a6$ blocks. There are no window sashes, and the doors, when closed, are airtight. The air supply Is forced into the room through a pipe, and filtered through cotton wool to cleanse it of bacteria. To Insure further sterilization the ail is driven against a glyoerine-eoated plaU of glass, which captures all the microbes the wool spares. The few microbes brought into the house In the alothes of the visitors soon die In th warm sunlight with which the house ii flooded. The space between the glass blocks, of which the house is built, it filled with a solution of salts, which ab sorbs the heat of the sun, so that the rooms are much cooler than those pro tected by the thickest shades. In the evening the Interior is heated by the salts radiating the heat thev have ah. sorbed during the day. JLeeds Hospital Magazine, His First VItv. An old Hampshire farmer came tc town to buy a hat, and was requested to look in the glass to see if the hat suited his taetes.

"Why, dont you Know yoursen ; "I be 60 years old," said the ancient after another pause, "an' I dunno at ever I sec my face afore."

Animals and Their Toilet. Cats, large and small, make the most cereful toilet of any, class of animals excepting some of the opossums. Tb lions and tigtrs wash themselves In ex actly the same manner as the cat, wet ting the dark, innsr-rubber-like ball oi the forefoot and innr toe, and pssaing It over the faoe and behind the ears. The foot is thus at the same time a face sponge and a brush, and the rough tongue combs the rest of the body. Hares also use their feet to wash theii faces, and the hare's foot is so suitable for a brush that it is used to apply the "paint" to the faoe for the stags. Chi cago Chronicle.

A prominent farmer living near Wel lington, tells us that from his place nine threshers can be seen at work, and that one of them, owned by John Hooper, threshed over 12,000 bushels of wheat during the six days ending July 14th. He has been at work two weeks and has not been a mile distant from his starting point. The wheat will average about twenty bushels per acre and is of excel lent quality. Six cents per bushel is charged for threshing and it takes a crew of twelve men to run one machine, nearly as many more to be furnished by the man for whom the work is done. There are probably one hundred ma chines at work in the county, and it will take three lnonths or more to do all of the work. Food and Sleep are necessary to life and health.
