We will tell you what will cure the worst kind of a case of backache caused from the kidneys. We will not only tell you, but will refer you to peo ple in all walks of life in the city of Marshalltown who have used Kid-ne oids with the best results. We ask you to read this statement from Mr. C. W. Seward, Soldiers' Home, who says: "As the result of overwork kidney trouble was brought on, and I have suffered with it for many years, with all of the symptoms of chronic kidney diseases. I have used different kinds of kidney remedies, but they failed to give me re lief until I commenced to take Mor row's Kld-ne-oida, I took them ac cording to directions with wonderful results. I shall continue to use Kid-ne oida and shall recommend them to any one suffering with kidney disease." Morrow's Kld-ne-oids are not pills, but yellow tablets, and sell at SO cents a box at drug stores and at McBrlde & Will's drug store. Mailed on receipt of price.

NOW FOR THE CAMPAIGN. It has been announced by Chairman Hancock that hereafter the headquar ters of the republican state central committee will be located at Des Moines and that this fall's campaign will opened in earnest by Sept. 1. The greatest danger to be faced in a year like this, when there is so little opposi tion to republicanism in Right, is the danger of indifference. Thousands of republican voters who are busy men, unless stirred up. will neglect to cast their ballots in the thought that their votes will not be needed and the result will be that the rightful republican ma jority that ought to roll up mountain high will fall far short of its just pro portions, with possibly a few plose dis tricts, lost by default. These dangers the committee realize and it is their intention to wage such a campaign that every voter will be aroused to a sense of his responsibili ties. Literature will be distributed lib erally, speakers engaged and every ef fort customary in years of close con tests will be made to stir up an interest in the election. The committee, how ever, can not do the whole thing unless each individual voter is willing to do his duty. If every man would see that one vote was cast the committee's trou bles would be o'er. It is the one great responsibility of American citizenship that every voter cast his ballot and this year the duty is rendered more exact ing by the added demand for some slight recompense for the unsual pros perity which republican success has made it possible for American citizens to enjoy. The casting of a ballot is a slight effort, it is a duty of vital impor tance, and Is a cheap prico to pay for the benefits that have been conferred upon all voters by the republican party. POLICY AS TO CUBA. Gen. Gomez does not desire it to be understood that he has abandoned the policy of independence for Cuba, neithei does President McKinley nor the repub lican party, although an effort is being made by the opposition to create the Impression that they are not living up to and do not intend to live up to the promises made to Cuba. The adminis tration has not wavered from its pur pose In undertaking the performance of this sacred trust, and all of its acts have been in line with the plan of fully restoring ord'r, aiding the civil authori ties to establish themselves and iSti mately to withdraw the military forces from the island. President MeKlnley Is proceeding with due caution, as he should, and any delay that may lead to suggest doubt is based on the desire of our government to ^o its work faithfully. It is pointed out that the military force in the island is costing the government of the United hot.heaclpiJ critics States millions of dollars and that there will be no recompense save in the good will of the people, unless. Indeed, by a voluntary act, the people should gen erally and In majority force ask to be admitted as a part of the nation. No movement, of course, will be made by the administration to influence the peo ple in this direction. The troops no« in Cuba would be of good use in the Philippines just now, and for this rea son the government would be glad to withdraw them, but it will remain faithful to its trust despite this fact. HOIST BY THEIR OWN PETARD. If the democratic party were not handicapped by its own history and record it might with some reason urge it& anti-expansion views and make its plea for oppressed Filipinos. Mr. Bryan claims to be at a loss to know how a nation which believes that a govern ment derives its Just powers from the consent of the governed can enter into a colonial policy and govern the territory of another people by force. But it is unfair to assume that the republican party proposes to continue a govern ment of force. When order is restored in the Philippines It Is fair to predict that the people will be given liberty equal to our own and a better guaranty of stability than they could establish themselves. The whole history of the democratic party in the United States, however, is against the "consent' of the governed" theory which democrats now roll as a sweet morsel under their tongues. These democratic critics will gwmhtg Tim**-1lqroMi^ And by consulting history that the United States beean under their own party policy |n 1803 to take territory without the consent of the governed and have repeated it. But, not abashed by history or their own record, the demo crats set up a plaintive plea now mere ly to attract the discontented to their ranks. "No race is good enough to gov ern another without Its consent," is the statement which the Page county dem ocrats incorporated in their platform. The Shenandoah Sentinel took this up to administer several keen thrusts, ask ing "How about the negroes in the south who are systematically disfran chised by the southern democrats and ruled without their consent? Why is the sympathy of democrats for negroes away from home so much greater thafi for those at home? If they do not want to rule anybody without their consent, why do they not permit the negroes in South Carolina and Mississippi to gov ern those states where they are in a ma jority?" The answers to these home thrusts will consist of large chunks of silence. The future will show that the people of the Philoppines will not suffer as have the colored men of the south. As well stated by the Sac Sun— 'The people of the United States do not have any desire to oppress «tny peo ple under the sun. Where the flag of our country goes there will be a free government, but even a free govern ment must suppress disorder or insur rection by force, or it must cease to ex ist." THE COUNTY FAIR. For a month or more in Iowa the oounty fair will demand attention. Glancing through the county paper one finds that the local editor is trying to do his duty by urging the people to turn out in full force. It is certain the fruits of a plentiful year on farm and in field will yield agricultural products in abundance. The big pumpkin and the enormous ears of corn win be in evidence everywhere, while the horse race will afford the professional jockey the usual ample time to wear out the good humor of the patient looker-on. The old program will probably be re peated in all departments, with some possible changes as1 the result of a stirring effort to Introduce new fea tures. Marshall county long ago aban doned the county fa because it ceased to attract public interest, and it is quite probable that it would be very diflicult to revive it. The city of Marshalltown has outgrown the period when Buch an affair proves an attraction. The county itself as a whole might be able to sus tain it in biennial or quadrennial dis plays if a strong effort were made. The farmer would be required to contribute the greater part of the interest. I3ut fairs as given from year to year have too much sameness and spectators are soon surfeited. Even the state society finds it diflicult to maintain a state fair for the same reason, although having greater resources of attractions to pre sent. IOWA PRESS COMMENT. "No wonder that Judge Sherwin won out. He was not only born in Ohio, but he lives in Iowa and that combination is one hard to beat," declares the Coun cil Bluffs Nonpareil. Commenting on the Burlington Hawk eye's statement that "there ought to be a thumping big republican majority on the state ticket this year," the Wat erloo Reporter says: "Yes. There will be, too. Whether it will reach the 100, 000 mark, as some papers are claiming, will depend on some things not yet de termined. But it will be big enough tc satisfy any reasonable ambition. There is no question of results this year, only the size of the majority." The Newton Journal asserts that "it is a fact that the roads in Jasper county have been improved at least 100 per cent in the last ten years, and this improve ment has been brought about by the in fluence of the farmers." The Sac Sun approves the proposed constitutional amendment to provide for biennial elections, an- avers that "the change will reduce the expense of holding elections and in no way will af fect injuriously the interests of the pub lie." The Tama Herald thinks that "if the devil himself were to appear and say something against expansion he could be sure net only of being extensively quoted by the democratic press, but of being editorially praised." The Tama Free Press goes on record as assuring "Marshall republicans that Tama republicans are ever ready and glad to reciprocate for any and ail fa vors received at the hands of Marshall county." The Audubon Republican observes that "it is not very hard for any one to understand the money plank of the re publican state platform. We shall see if the democratic platform speaks as plainly. There Is no doubt but the people will make themselves understood on the subject. Iowa is for sound mon ey and the gold standard, by about 100,000 majority." As viewed by the Odebolt Chronicle, "the senatorial question did not enter Into the judicial contest. Gear and Cummins men alike voted for Judge Sherwin." TOWA CROPS AND HARVEST. Jefferson Bee: The only complaint at present made about the Greene county corn crop is that there are too many ears on a stalk. We believe Nature understands her business and will take care of all the ears she put* out. Waterloo Reporter: One of the best reports that have came from the threshers at work in Blacknawk coun ty was brought to this city today,from the farm of William McNeills In lister township, just north of Dunkerton. From thirty-two acres Mr. McNeill* waamamBBam^^ .^fggig 1 1 threshed 2,116 bushels, an average of 89% bushels ,tp the acre. This return was machlntf int&sure but as the grain is very heavy this year the actual yield will be considerably in' excess of that big figure. Tama Herald: A good corn crop could be matured in south Tama without an other drop of rain. Hampton Recorder: Some of our farmers whose oats were blown down by the storm Tuesday of last week are Having a serious time harvesting, as in many cases the cutting can be done only one way, making two miles travel for one mile's cutting. Odebolt.Chronicle: The grain is eith er in stack or shock, and threshing has begun. Oats will be a heavy yield and will grade high. Wheat was injured tc some extent by the hot weather be fore cutting time, but will be of fair quality and few pieces will run less than twenty bushels to the acre, while much will go twenty-five. Barley has nearly all been threshed and Is of fair quality, running from thirty-five to forty bushels per acre. The acreage of timothy was not as large as usual, but the yield per acre will be above the average. Corn Is doing as well as pos sible, and If the frost doesn't come tor soon the crop will be heavy. All in all, this is a great year for Sac county farmers. Ogden Reporter: These frequent showers are very unfavorable for sav ing the harvested oats but they are splendid for the corn, potatoes and pas tures. Farmers are not kicking. Hartley Herald: Harvesting is pretty well over and stacking being rushed. Oats and wheat are estimated at only a half crop. Ackley Word: It is no longer a ques tion what the harvest in Iowa will be. The question bothering the farmer now is what it will be worth, there is such an abundance of it. TOPICS OF THE TIMES 11 II LLL-H-L L"H"H II I 111it If you have any doubts about the boom in Iowa just pick up any dally pa per and take account of the number of enterprises experiencing dilllculties in getting men enough to carry them on. A bicycle firm in Glasgow, which rents a large number of wheels, has de vised a scheme which largely increases its business and at the same time makes it safe against loss by theft. Every limeii wheel Is rented the firm takes a photograph of the rider Just before he starts out. When the ride Is over, a copy iif the photograph is delivered to the rider free of charge. At the same time, if the wheel is not promptly returned, the firm has in its possession a picture of the delinquent, who can In this wu be easily traced. The Iowa Central track on the Bel mond extension will be completed to Corwith today. Marshalltown and vicinity is rapidly leijping into prominence as a summar resort. At present there aro no less than a dozen different camps located along the Iowa river within a few miles of the city. Every one reports a good time and more are preparing to enjoy a similar outing. Lawyer M. O. Waggoner, of Toledo, the agnostic and Infidel converted to Christianity by sacred music issuing from a talking machine, and who is go ing to burn his library on Aug. 20, Is the recipient of many letters. They come from men in every walk of life and comprise criticisms as well as endorse ments. The Thirteenth Minnesota, 996 strong, has sailed homeward from Manila, and the boys are anticipating a warm wel come home. Professor Sehiirman, of the Philippine commission, will reach Washington about the time Admiral Dewey arrives, and will have a conference with the lat ter with a view to agreeing upon a re port to be made to President MeKlnley in regard to the situation in the Phil ippines. Recommendations will be made In regard to the policy which should be adopted by this government In Its treatment of tho archipelago and. the Filipinos, and this doubtless will have some influence in framing the report to be submitted to congress by the presi dent. Yes. the days are hot, but the nights are delightfully cool. This is the waj" Towa takes good care of her citizens during the heat of her few summer months. It sr*erh.« diat Mr. Cummins Is safe In the Humboldt-Pocahontas representa tive district for in the convention yes terday Mr. De Wolf, the Gear candi date, ngaif! met defeat at the hands of the pupporterB of Mr. Kent, who sire known to be DolHver men first, with Cummins as second choice. Gentlemen, there's no use In wrangling about it let's score one for Cummins and throw up the ball. Gear is to bat. The St. Iyouis Republic, a democratic paper, submits its views of our duty in the Philippines iri this paragraph: "Set ting up Indian republics would have been an utter absurdity, as every one familiar with the character and habits of the red man will admit. Such experi ments would equally break down In the Philippines. We must treat the inhabi tants of that group according to their capacities, teaching them first of all that this country is not to be shaken in Its purpose by armed attack." This Is a sensible view of the situation. The Iowa boys displayed their heroic metal In the last engagement in the Philippines, where they engaged In some of the hardest fighting. Poor hurricane-stricken Porto Rico may well be glad that she sails under the American flag, as the appeal for aid for her 100,000 homeless people was promptly, responded to by the United States. This wll}. be a new tie to ce ment the people of that island to the Stars ard Stripes, It Is now claimed that Capt. A. P. Burton, of Company B, Fifty-first Iowa, who is charged with cowardice in bat-, tie in the Philippine campaign, and hid ing In a ditch la th« r««r during an en gagement, was tn tear of his life at the hands of his men who had threatened to shoot him In battle. Such instances have not been jare, and are usually fhe fault of au overbearing officer. The matter will be Investigated, as it should be, and the truth of this charge ascer* tained. •V.''"'.v The added responsibility of "expan sion" has been made apparent by the terrific tornado in Porto Rico. Those were our own people who suffered in the storm, and their cries for relief were re sponded to quickly by our government, and further demands Bhould be an swered by the more fortunate Ameri cans on the continents It is not generally known that Sam uel M. Jones, better known as '"the golden rule mayor of Toledo," is a na tive of Wales, where he was born at Ty Mawr, on Aug. 3, 184(5. It has been ap parent for some time that he had some 'foreign" characteristics. v'V The crops on 240,000 acres of North Dakota farms and on GO,000 acres of Minnesota were almost wholly de stroyed by hail Thursday morning. One estimate places the loss of wheat tn North Dakota at 2,000,000 bushels. In ali the storm-stricken section insurance men assert that less than 5 per cent of the acreage was covered by hail Insur ance, which goes to show that the farmers might have saved themselves great losses if they had heeded the early lessons of the season. Gen. Gomez has made a statenien claiming that the differences in opinion in Cuba have been exaggerated and that "independence" is the sole watch word there. Des Moines is proud, as she has a right to be, of her new Auditorium. The Capital coaches home pride by declar ing "By the sign of the auditorium but ton should all Des Moines men be known." v\ ''.A It Is a: cheerful prospect to note the number of communities that are turn Ing to road building as a municipal en terprise for encouraging trade. There can be no more valuable improvements than the building of permanent roads and those communities who have tried it are more than satisfied with the re suits obtained. .y? The pleasure of driving or buggy rid ing as we are wont to call it is never more appreciated than during the hot weather. There is no cooler or more delightful diversion possible than a pleasant drive along the beautiful sum mer roads of Iowa during the twilight hours. PRANCE, NOT DREYFUS, ON TRIAL. [New York Mail and Express.] The cable brings us news that Capt. Alfred Dreyfus, of the French Army, is again on trial for high treason, upon the charge of having delivered to a for eign power, either directly or through Its agents, documents explanatory of the national defense. The alleged stat us of the affair at Rennes Is a farce. It is not Dreyfus, but France, that is on trial. Dreyfus was acquitted when the arch consiprator of 1864, Col. Henry, com mitted suicide, after having confessed tbe forgery of a letter Intended to veri fy the justice of conviction. He was acquitted when the Infamous Ester hazy, whose tool and partner Henry was, fled from France In disgrace as the self-confessed author of the bordereau. He was acquitted when Col. PIcquart, suffering imprisonment for his defense of the conrict, was liberated by the government with the indorsement of the people, lie- was acquitted when Gen. Mercler, minister of war In 1894, suf fered absolute loss of prestige without the slightest protest on the part of the people. He was acquitted when every officer of distinction Involved in the conspiracy against him was disgraced, and the country calmly witnessed the operation. He was acquitted when the cotirt of cassation, investigating the conviction on the plea of revision, prac tically recorded Its belief that Ester hazy wrote the bordereau. He has been acquitted by lnnunyirable developments which have all centered In the single fact th&t Dreyfus was sacrificed be cause tha conviction of Esterhazy would have Involved his partner, Hen ry, and this in turn would have reflect ed seriously upon the general staff, with every member of which Henry had in gratiated himself and which stood spon sor for his integrity. It was a mistaken sense of self-pro tection, coupled with an astounding ab sence of moral balance, that led Mercler and the officers of the general staff to 1 supplement complaisance by criminal participation and impelled conspiracy downward from bad to worse, honey combing the chamber of deputies with corrupt motive and Its mate, fanatical championship of the army, toppling governments, Inviting revolution and holding France up to the Bcorn of civ ilization. The leading conspirators have not abandoned hope. They strut and fume, and base continued effort at self-pres ervation upon the expedient of fresh perjury. It is no longer possible, In the view of reason, that they can succeed. Nevertheless, It is France, not Dreyfus that is on trial at Rennes. The Inno cence of Dreyfus stands revealed before the world.
