Til \NkS(iD ING DAY.
Thanksgiving Day corner again, full
of meaning, and let ns hope tilled with
sweetness to human life in its collective
and individual character. In the year
that haa passed since the last national
holiday the nation has dieen wounded,
but the blow which fatally struck the
chiet magistrate down, solidified the
people into inteuser loyalty to consti
t uted authority, and made them one in
their devotion to the republic.
Thanksgiving Day tells us this
year that men and women in this coun
try wain in pleasant places. Ihe hand
of plenty scatters its bounty with equal
prodigality in rural and urban localities.

Jolin Nagle’s Philosophy.
Tin- essays of graduatingclasses
invariably have sophomoric fea
tures There is something so fas
cinatingin resonant terms, some
thing so pleasing in citing ex
amples from antiquity, that the
fon 1 desire often proves stronger
than the promptings of good sense,
and classical allusions are more
earnestly sought after than ch.se
reasoning or logical force. This
is a fault which is difficult to elim
inate and it is one which mars to
a great extent the produet of the
youthful brain. The Spartans
and Homans Carthagenians and
Trojan* have long done service
on tented fields and in literary
productions. Their introduction
now has lost the charms of novel
ty and their presence weakens
rather than embellishes the pages
in which their names figure
At the recent district Convention of
l ■■ Wisconsin Federation of Women’s
cl ihs, held in Oshkosh, discussion was
p ovoked. by a resolution which sought
t make men eligible to membership in
Women's clubs. Of course argument

women were violently opposed to the
‘■.eirrid innovation," while some of the

The discussion as to the propriety of

no doubt that women’s clubs are of

! Collector George B. Bidweli and put
State Senator Nevada N. Stranahan in
his place is at least received in New
York Republican circles with no mark
ed demonstrations of disapproval, and
the two senators are not likely to op
pose confirmation in the senate. The
displacement of Bidweli foreshadows
that also of Wilbur F. Wakeman, ap
praiser, who is not agreeable to Secre
tary Gage, and whose removal would
also compensate Senator Platt in a meas-
me for any disappointment he may feel
I over the removal of the collector.
• The reasons fur the president’s action
in Bidwell’s ea*e are not given. We
should like to believe that it was direet
ly due to the collector’s ‘offensive par
tisanship’ in the federal politics of New
I York city so offensive to men of his
own party that a very strong case
I against him of unfair or corrupt manip-
I ulation in the matter of a congressional
I nomination in the 11th New York dis
j irict was made up by Republicans, and
I presented to President McKinley, who,
however, after urging the complainants
to keep the matter quiet until after the
i presidential election of 1900, later re-
I warded Bidweli with a reappointment
instead of removing or displacing him,
'as requested. But it appears to glow
I out of a deadlock of antagonism, in
which Wakeman and Bidweli both fig
ure the supporters of the former being
arrayed against the latter, and the re
moval of both being required to appease
the feelings of * ither party. Still Mr.
Roosevelt's prompt and decided action
in Indwell's case has spread among the
politicians a fear that federal office-hold
ers who are active as partisan leaders
need to look out.
"The displacement of the collector
against Senator Platt’s opposition, with
I no promise that he can or will make
I trouble about it, marks another long
step in the decline of the power of the
New Vrk boss. His influence is no
longci ; araua nut in the Hep ibllcun pol
itics of lhe state It received a crushing
blow from Gov. Odell last winter. It
was openly flouted in the fusion cam
paign of two weeks ago, with no other
effect than to advance tlie fusion
strength, and the accession of Roosevelt
to the presidency and Low to New York
mayoralty bring into power influences
and dispositions quite against those of
those of the boss.
“The president was cautions enough
to tell Platt of his intentions as to Hid
well beforehand thus keeping his ac
tion clear of the sting which especially
attached to President Garfield's substi
tution of William H Robertson for
Gen E. A. Merritt in the New Y’ork
collectorship, made public without any
previous knowledge of Senators Conk
ling and Platt. And President Rtsise
velt substitutes a man not personally
disagreeable to the senators, while Pres
ident Garfield pursued the contrary
course, and so brought on the clash of
factions whicl gave New Y’ork state to
the Democrats in I**'.* by nearly “Jnn.OOO
plurality, and cost the Republicans the
presidency in I**l Hut if the presi
dent had been less tenderly considerate
of Platt s feelings it is doubtful if the
latter could make effective war on the
administration. His day of premier
ship in the Republican politics of the
Empire state is over.
We have before called upon the Re

Catarrh has become such a common
disease that a person entirely free from
this disgusting complaint is seldom met
with. It is customary to speak of Catarrh
as nothing more serious than a bad cold,
a simple inflammation of the nose and
throat. It is, in fact, a complicated and
very dangerous disease; if not at first, it
very soon becomes so.
The hlood is quickly contaminated by
the foul secretions, and the poison througn
the general ciiculation is carried to all
parts of the system.
Salves, washes and sprays are unsatis

and eliminates from the system all catar
