Vernom (joint* Censor
O. a. MUNSON, Editor and Prop.
Wednesday, Deo. 7, 1898.
President McKinley’s message to con
gresses transmitted on Mon day last is,
throughout, permeated by genuine and
intense Americanism. Of the war it is
an accurate and patriotic historical re
view On the question of sound monej
legislation, it is unequivocal end fear
less as the President himself is. At this
time we can but briefly outline the gis'
of the message. The war with Spain h
related in terse but accurate terms. Tbs
results are clearly defined. Oar poei
tion as to the control and government
of the Philippines must, necessarily, b
tentative and a waiting one. Such con
trol must be a military one until con
gress decides finally and in detail to the
contrary. A large navy and a standing
army of at least 100,000 men is abso
lutely essential. Our vast commercial
interests in China must be conserves
and preserved by every means in out
power and at whatever coot. The trib
nte of „he president to those who dir
not fight, but waited in silent readiness
and confidence for the call to arms whei
it came as well as to the saintly devo
tion of the nurses and physicians of the
Red Cross society, is as generons as it
is deserved. The pension-roll, the posta
service, the Pacific road sales ard
our cordial relations with foreign coun
tries recjive due attention Last, but
not least, the waste and smfering of wai
and in that connection the Czar’s peace
movement are the subject of serioua and
earnestly sympathetic treatment by tip
It is too early to anticipate, correctly,
the reception the message will receive
in all qoarterp, political end national
However the Censor hopes and believes
that the same absence of partisansbq
and the same patriotic unity of purp< s
and effoit which upheld the president
and administration in the conduct of
the war itself, will continue to character
ize the consideration and treatment of
the vital and difficult problems result
ting therefrom. The nation, as a whole,
will demand of their representatives in
congress, absolute and unqualified loy
alty to Pesident McKinley, in whose
patriotism and wisdom they have a con
fidence unalloyed by even the shadow
of doubt.
Oshkosh Northwestern: We are too
apt to forget,after election,the principles
in which we were most interested before
election. This is a year and an occasion
when the party must not, and the people
will not, forget the pledges on which the
republican victory was won this year.
The people who rolled np 40,000 major
ity for the state ticket and elected ten
republican congressmen and a republi
can msjority in the legislature are en
titled to have the policy and the legis
la’ion carried out for which they voted.
If t v ere is any virtue in representative
government, it is that the will of,the
people shall pass through the ballot box
into the statute books. No party can
hold the full confidence of the people
which mistakes the will of the people
for a mere office brokerage. It was not
for offices, but for certain principles and
for the enactment of certain reforms and
more agreeable policies that the people
voted at the last election. We have
never had an election in the state when
the office or the individual who should
hold the office cut so small a figure in
the suffrages of the people.
Hon. Edward Keogh, known by every
printer and legislator of the Btate for
the past thirty years, died of paralysis
at his Milwaukee home, a week since.
Mr. Keogh served in the iwo houses of
the legislature more terms than anv
other man. He has, during these years,
conducted the largest job printing con
cern in the state. Every acquaintance
admired Ed. Keogh.
There has been quite general belie*
among his friends and neighbors for
several weeks that Robert M La Fol
lett’s condition was discouraging. His
physician, Dr. Fox, now gives out the
assurtnoe that his patient is on the
road to recovery and predicts that he
will be able to proceed to a milder cli
mate to pass the winter in quiet and
An exchange says that the Boston
Herald wants the Christian Scientists to
answer this question: ‘Tf a man hae
boils on his neck and under his arms,
can he be cured by trying to persnade
himself that they are only imaginary ?”
That is enough to make a Christian
Scientist boiling mad.
Out of 20 western states that had fu
sion, the republicans oarried 17. Not
quite 10 to 1, but good enough. The
western stales are nearly all safe now
and the republicans will throw out the
life line to the others in 1900.
The chains which the republican party
was forging for the people,as claimed by
the calamity howlers two years ago,have
turned out to be several chains of
islands. Only a misapprehension, of

Not Favorable to Tobacco V.'ork.
There appears to be nothing particu
larly new to report in the tobacco line.
The local dealers are preparing their
houses for the sorting season. Up to
date no crops have been delivered nor wi 1

Workmen on the new houses of Miner
Brotners are experiencing cold fingers,
and the work is proceeding slowly on
account of *he unfavorable condition for
building operations.
The I’obocco Reporter, of Edgerton,
says stripping in that section has pro
ceeded far enough to now determine that
the yield of filler grades will be much
larger than usual. This is due chiefly
to the damage the crop sustained from
hail and heavy wind storms previous lo
harvest. This fact, however, ought not
to deter growers of cleaning their to
baeco well and takirg out all of thie
grade that properly belongs there, even
if the percentage rune high. Then the
other grades will be much more inviting
to the buvers and the chances are im
prov’d for obtaining better pricee for
wrappers and binders. While the strip
ping is oeing done the heavy top leaves,
that will eventua'ly make “shorty'should
be carefully kept apart and bundled
separately.* These are the instructions
buyers are giving growers for the hand
ling of the present crop, and it seems to
be to the interest of all concerned that

6 cent*.
A World of Trouble.
The editor of the Troy, Kansas, Times,
thus bre k-i out: M-tti that is bora
of womau is few of days and full of
microbes. Tne moment he bite the
earth he starts for the grave, and the
longer he travels the faster he goes.
His visible reward for long of
labor and nights of walking the floor
with a teething b*by is aa epitaph
he can’t read and u tombstone he
doesn’t want. In the first of the seven
ages of mm he’s licked, in the last he’s
neglected, and in all the others he’s a
arg-t for the lying, meddlesome mis
chtefrnaker— woman who won’t tend
to her own business. If he does not,
marry his first love he’ll always tfish he
had, and if he does he’ll always wish he
hadn’t. Yet no man ever follows
freedom's flag for patriot itu with half
the enthusiasm that he will trail the
red, white and blue that constitutes the
banner oi female beauty. He will brave
the lion in his den, face the booming
cannon, tread the foam beueath
his feet, and yet will tremble like a half
frozen egg-sucking dog when called by
his wife to account for his ouseednesa.
He goes forth in the morning to plow
corn with a cross eyed mule and a
roan steer, works hard all day and comes
home at night to find his seven haif
olothed chi'dren hungry as bears and
no bread in the house, and his wife
over to one of the neighbor’s to borrow j
a hat to wear to a church social.
Two Hi>!nU'd <t>it'MioiiN Answered
What is the use of mnking a better
a tide than your competitor if you can
iot get a better price fo* it?
Ans - As there is no difference in the
price the public will buy only the better,
so that while our profits may be smaller
on a single sale they will be much greater
in the aggregate.
How can you get the public to know’
your make is the beet ?
If both artic,eß are brought promi
nently before the public both are certain
to be tried end the public will verv
quickly pass judgment on them and use
only the better one.
This exp'sias the large sale on Clmm

upon. They may occasionally take up

"Jo ’ Craig Writes of tho New Medical
Kirksville, Mo., Nov 28, 1898.
Friend Munson: —Thinking that the
readers of the Censor would like to
hear aoont the new science oalled
Osteopathy, I will wri'e what I have
learned and what I think about it. To
start in with the osteopath does not give
medicine to cure his patients His
theory is that when anything is the
matter with one that something is out
of place, as for instance, the vertebra is
slipped or the leg is out of place, caus
ing rheumatism as it generally does.
Tin treatment corahs in woiking up
the muscles and getting the blood to
injur*d places and setting the bone
where it needs stt’ing and then let
nature do the rest. My trouble oomes
from a curvature in two places m my
back, causing a sort of paralysis, and if
my back can be put back in its nomal
condition the vertebra will not press
against the spinal column and thereby
release the pressure and give me fu'l
control of my nerves. Now a parson
can see that no medicine is goiDg to
help straighten my back, and that the
only thing that can help me is to get
the bone back the way it ought to be.
There is a case in this city of a girl
who lißd curvature of the spine 60 that
her h'pand shouldi-rboneetouched. To
day she is entirely cured and can get
around hs good as anybody. This girl
had to be brought here on a pillow.
They are good on nervous troubles,
curvature of the spiue, stomach trouble,
paralysis, headache and the setting of
bones. The trouble with the old school
doctors is that the different deformities
that people have are that th“y think it
is a ohftrHcteristi' of that individual,
when the peron should notMie that
way and that is the reason why he or
she is sick or ailing.
The leading school of oeteopathv in
this country and the one fonnded by
the discoverer of this great soienoe
which is going to be a benefit to man
kind and the world in general, is located
at Kirksville, Missouri, in th northeast
ern part on the Wabash and Port. Arthur
railroads. It is located in a rich farmirg
country of the state and is the county
neat, with about ten thousand inhal i
tants. The school has this year five
hundred and fi ty scholars.. The build
ing where the school and irfirro*rv are
is a solid brick building in the western
part of the town and cosung about ore
hundred thousand dollarp, having all
the latest improvement. The instructors
of the school are the finest that are to
be had, one of them being the finest sur
geon in this country. The course is
twenty months long, but a dootor may
be admitted to the lsst year and finish
if he has a diploma from a medical
school. Oce noticeable thing about the
students is tbat a good many have come
here for treatment a> ,and have been cured
or helped and thpr; study it.
Yours respectfully,
Elmer R. Craig
