Women Who Wear Well.
It Is astonishing how (rut a change a few years of married life often make In the appearancc and disposition of many women. The freshness, the charm, the brilliance vanish like the bloom from a peach which is rudely handled. The matron la only a dim shadow, a faint echo of the charming maiden. There are two reasons for this change, ignorance and neglect. Few young women appreciate the shock to the system through the change which comes with marriage and motherhood. Many neglect to deal with the unpleasant pelvic drains and weak nesses which too often come with mar riage and motherhood, not understanding that this secret drain Is robbing the cheek of Its freshness and the form of its lalrness.

EASTERN OFFICE R. J. Shannon, Manager, Brunswick building, New York, N. Y. CARNEGIE'S CURRENCY SCHEME. Andrew Carnegie' has a currency scheme, and it is a good one. Andrew business judgment has been proved to be good. His financial status and mo tive in life at the present time puts him above suspicion ol self-interest temptations. He declares that the American banking system is the worst in the world, and in this lie has the concurrence of the most eminent au thorities on the subject. But starting' with conditions so very bad, he would not revolutionize the system at one jump. He explains that all we need to do now is to let go of our bond se cured currency and get hold of a gold secured currency. He would let go gradually so as to scare no one, and as fast as bonds were given up as securi ty for note issues he would have the law increase the percentage of bank reserves held in gold coin. He points out with force that in times ot" com mercial panic and war the thing every body seeks is gold, not bonds. He would let the banks issue notes upon their assets, partially at tirst, but grad ually get away from bond security al together, and increase the gold reserves at the same rate bonds are given up. The Carnegie scheme ought to com mend Itself to a congressman. A GOOD MAN GONE. If any man was a part of Iowa, its history and its development. Charles Aldrieh was that man. His death re moves another of the notable figures from among the lessening number of the men who have done their part in the making of Iowa from a prairie ter ritory into a magnificent agricultural commonwealth and a leader among the states in all that goes to create the true greatness of a people and a nation. He was a typical Iowa pioneer and of the high type that has left its last ing impress upon our institutions and our laws and the common thought fc.nd conviction of Iowa. Clean minded, high of aim, possessed of a large men tality. helpful, sincere, honest, and without the greed that diverts energy from its higher levels, Aldrieh has served others more than himself. All his life lie was a busy man. The rec ord of his life is one of public service and without a stain. This is a great s.nd splendid statement to be made with absolute truth above an open grave. What did he leave? Not much to be devised by will 1 or expended upon granite shafts rich with an adulation too often undeserved but in the capi tal city of Iowa a magnificent building rears above its fellows monumental of the life and services of Charles Aid rich, father and curator of the histori cal department and prime mover and promoter of the splendid building that houses it. While Iowa's historical building stands, Aldrieh will have an enduring monument. And the best of all is that he was the type of man who needs nor craves a monument. Men wither and decay. A lifetime is all too short for the work of a great and sincere man. Old age comes and the weakness of the shadow wherein no man may labor. Then night and the rest of the night. To have worked while the light endured, to have kept faith with mankind and one's own soul, to leave behind that justification for having lived that is voiced in the re gret and sorrow of the living, is to have lived and died well. So lived GOOD AND THE CAUCUSES. In resourcefulness the Cedar ids Republican might be depended up on to turn a complete summersault and come up on its feet ready to take ad vantage of any situation, no matter how unexpected. For this reason, its argument now that the defeat of pro gressives in the Cedar Rapids cau cuses was a vote against Good for con gress, is not surprising. On the day of the caucuses, when the result was un certain and much at stake, the Repub lican endorsed the county chairman's manifesto that the congressional issue was not involved. "Xo congressional issue is involved in tonight's caucuses." argued the Republican, with slug bead and black type emphasis, and insisted "Kvery well informed person knows this. The congressional question will come before the primaries in June. It is not involved ill these caucuses." The opposition, having no newspaper thru which to reacU the public, it might be presumed that I.inn county voters were led by what tlie.v read in their newspaper. But that was on the day of the caucuses wh~n the re sult was problematical. The antl- Rap- Republican could not pass up its op portunity to call it a Trewin victory as well. "Kvery well Informed person'' i.s expected to forget the counsel given him the day before. The result in Linn county affects the congressional situation only to the ex- BUSINESS AT LEADING POINTS. Money is getting cheap, but factories are running light, and wholesale prices are at low levels, altho there seems to be a good volume of sales being made. From various parts of the country the reports are as follows: Chicago.—improved weather and re moval of hindrances to movements of freight and farm products permitted more general activity, and trade is wider in 1 eading lines of distribution. Buyers from many sections crowd the wholesale district, and there is an ac tive demand for prompt shipment in dry goods, ood products, furniture and footwear, and shipping rooms are busier now than at any time in the past few months. Sales of millinery and notions closely approach the ag gregate at this time last year, and there is less hesitancy in women's gar ments and clothing than was felt in the country demand during February. For warding of merchandise to western points is not so heavy as a year ago, but the tonnage increases. Mercantile collections reflect further ease in finan cial conditions, and there is less anx iety as to credits. March payments at the banks swell the volume of clear ings and brought a further release of funds, but the offerings of choice com mercial aper remain narrow, and money is variously quoted, with the prevailing rate per cent. St. Louis.—Inward and outward movements of merchandise show con siderable improvement over January, and in a great number of lines there are gains over the corresponding month last year. Out-of-town buy ers are in 1 arge attendance and are making fair purchases, and manufac turers are increasing their output steadily. Collections are only fair. Business in flour is larger, with prices firmer. Spot cotton is moderately ac tive at a decline of %c. Lumber re ceipts are increasing, and the demand is improving, while prices are steady. The demand for money is fair. Com mercial paper is discounted at 5% to 6 per cent. Philadelphia.—Jobbers of woolens and wholesale dry goods houses report a slight improvement in business, but some grades of goods are difficult to supply, commission houses and manu facturers being unable to fill orders promptly. Wholesale milliners are in the midst of their spring opening, and indications point to good business. Manufacturers are still operating very cautiously in wool and seeking conces sions in prices fine staples are in light supply and steadily held, but clothing wools and the lower grades of all descriptions are weak and unset tled.t The textile industries are very dull, and a large percentage of em ployes are laid off. Manufacturers of shirt waists and of cloaks, clothing and suits are fairly active, but orders are not up to the preceding year. Boston.—The few changes reported in trade conditions are favorable, a slight improvement being apparent isi tho volume of orders. In the matter of prices, however, the situation is still somewhat unsettled. Both raw ma terials and manufactured articles are moving at a considerable reduction in some cases, but it is believed the bot tom has been touched. Sales of wool are a little larger, but prices are low further material shrinkage is not ex pected, tho the outlook is by no means tent that it shows the standpatters to in excess of the samo time last year, be on top in Linn county, the support- tho there are less future orders, but ers of Trewin having presented him more for immediate shipment. The de on a straight factional line-up. This should be remembered, however: Mr. Good is much more popular, person ally, in Jjinn county than is Mr. Tre win. He lias lived there since boy hood, his record is so clean that no fault can be found with it. Trewin came to Cedar Kapids an alien, with a corporation record in the Iowa leg islature. and succeeded to the corpor ation clients once retained by the late Judge Hubbard, the political boss with whom he had been identified in his politics. He is not popular Cedar llapids. Furthermore, caucuses are always more representative of the leaders than they are of public sentiment. As a rule, the men who do the work to get out the vote carry the caucuses, while a majority in tho ward might be against them if all the votes were counted. In l^inn county the leaders, the office holders, the county organiza tion and the newspapers have all been anti-Cummins. It is not strange that I !arg-\ they controlled their caucuses, and yet unusna they seemed to have been given an quality, combinations awful fright. There is nothing in the situation that prejudices the chances for Mr. Good. He will have more votes in Cedar and Ben ton and Jones than Trewin will set in Tama and Grundy and Marshall, and he has an even show to carry his own county in spite of the factional line-up against him. clear.

There lias been quite an in terval of dry weather in most sections of the state, but with some showers in sections where they were most needed. Farm work of all kinds has been ac tive. indications point to warmer weather soon, which will be of benefit to deciduous fruit trees. So far the light frosts in some sections have re sulted in no serious injury. Shipments of citrus fruits overland continue l'he orange crop has turned out ly well, both in quantity and that rarely go together in any of tie crops. The oil situation is in a better condition than it was a year ago, yield and consump tion being large and more evenly bal anced. Kxport trade in February was rather light. Topics of the Times In spite of accidents in many direc tions, the progressives still retain about their relative strength witli the line-up in l'JOti, and fifty-five out of ninety-nine counties have held their conventions. Presidential support of the Aldrieh bill should not phase public criticism of it. Strong and wise as the admin istration is, it is not omniscient, and of all the subjects upon which Mr. Roose velt is least informed, finance takes the lead. We have Lamonte Cowles conven ing a rump convention of standpatters in Des Moines county, and his brother. Gardner Cowles, publishing a progres sive newspaper at the capital of the slate. Let's have harmony. Mother (surprised)—"Why, Johnny, how did you happen to get the merit card for good behavior at school this week Small Johnny—"It was like this, mamma.

Lafe made an awful face when he had to take this from the Tat't Ohio platform: "A revision of the tariff by a special session of the next congress, insuring the maintenance of the true principal of protection by imposing such customs duties as will equal the difference between the cost of produc tion at home and abroad, together with a reasonable profit, to the end that without excessive duties, Ameri can manufacturers, farmers, producers and wage earners may have adequate protection." When you miss your paper, why do you kick? Because you want to read the news and so does everybody else. Are you publishing the news about your own business and the things you have to sell? I heard a story lately of a High lander who had been persuaded to buy a ticket for a raffle. He won the first prize, a bicycle, but on being told of his good fortune, instead of hugging himself with delight, he said: "Weel, that's just ma luck, buying two tick ets whan yin wad 'a' done. It's jist a saxpence wasted."—Dundee People's Journal. 0 0 For a time it looked as tho the hor rible example would fail us, but Bur lington has produced it. Those who still kick about a primary should view the riot and double convention in Des Moines county and approximate the harmony there is in it. Of the fifty-four county conventions held, half have been southern Iowa counties, and half northern Iowa coun ties. In 1906 the fifty-four counties gave a majority of thirty delegates for Perkins, and this year they give a ma jority of forty-four delegates for Alli son. At that rate the state over, the progressives will control the delegate convention. Because of the confiscatory nature of the 2-ccnt fare law. the transconti nental roads have decided to compete lor Denver business this summer at excursion rates of I Vi- cents per mile.

There is some ground for believing that congress may take note of the condition to which Mr. Miller's resignation called attention, and sanction a more liberal exploita tion of the district in which he was stationed. Secretary Root lias asked the house committee on foreign affairs to add $225,000 to the annual appropri ation for consular expenses, to enable consuls to live better and spend more on trade investigations. It costs nearly as much to pay the salaries of the municipal servants of New York city as it does to support the entire army of the United States. The salaries amount close to $70,000, 000 annually.

Hampton Chronicle says that "it is generally believed that the man who receives the largest number of votes will be readily given the nomi nation by the convention, even if ho does not receive the required thirty live per cent." "Those who opposed the passage of a primary law predicted that its pro visions would be so onerous that no one would want to undertake the task of being a candidate for office. In the light of present day events the fear was not justified. Judging from the number of petitions being circulated it appears there will be no difficulty filling all the offices worth having," concludes the Tipton Advertiser. The Monticeilo Express has heard that "the liquor interests arc forming a federation with headquarters at Chica go to fight prohibition, high license, local option and everything else hostile to the saloon," and it is led to belie\ "such an organization, rightly pushed, will help along the cause of temper ance by lining up all the enemies of the saloon." Ask the Rockwell City Advocate: "Which, Allison or Cummins, in their public utterances has shown himself to be nearest in accord with the expressed views o£ Secretary Tafit upon questions of public policy? A settlement of that question might throw some light up on the other much discussed question of who really at heart are the Taft men in Iowa, the progressives or the standpatters." "Albert B. Cummins has been attor ney for the people of Iowa for the past six years in the cases of the state vs. the corporations. And all the calumny and vituperation of a disgruntled and prejudiced opposi tion, pampered, cultivated and fostered by corporation funds cannot conceal the fact that his work has been more effective for the people than that of any of his predecessors. That is why it is desired that he take the case to the supreme court," argues the Glidden Graphic. 4 The coordination of religion and economics is thus expressed by the Shenandoah Sentinel Pont: "I do not think much of the religion of a man who makes loud prayers and gi\e~ tearful testimony in church and does not make an effort to pay his grocery bills or his coal bill or the subscription for his newspaper."

A highway robbery is a rare thing for Coon Rapids, but the (town had om Monday evening near the telephone office. A farmer from Dedham had brought about $400 worth of hogs to •town and got his check cashed. Then he proceeded to fill up on booze. Two others, young men. also went the rounds with lvim, filling up but appar ently not quite so full. About mid night. when the three were together, the two young fellows decided to make a haul. One held the farmer while the other, according to the farmer's story, rifled his pockets, taking about $375. The young fellows were not to be found Tuesday, giving color to the farmer's charge that they robbed him. The farmer, however, continued his boozing and It appears did not report his loss until about Tuesday noon, 2-1 hours after the alleged holdup. The officers are trying to locate the accused and will no doubt sooner or later find them. Whether, if found, a. case could be made out against them, is doubtful. No one seems to have seen the alleged robbery. The farmer might be thought too drunk at th? time of the holdup to he able to posi tively identify the parties, nnd the accused of course would denv fh" charge. The moral 'to this is: Don't booze. Tot S*oos Lef icla+ion. (Boston Herald) The official business of the speaker of the house of representatives was suspended for fifteen minutes recently, and anxious statesmen had to cool their heetls in the hall while "Uncle Joe" entertained little Miss Pauline Douthitt, 8 years old, of Springfield, III. The speaker was busy at his desk about 2 o'clock in the afternoon, and Neyle. the messenger, was asleep at the switch when the door of "Uncle Joe's" private sanctum opened and a petite young lady entered the room. Dignified and important lawmakers have to send t'heir cards, but Miss Pauline did not observe that formal ity. Mr. Cannon looked up in aston ishment. "Are you Uncle Joe!" asked the little girl. "That is what some of the boys call me," said the speaker. "Well," continued Miss Pauline, "I want to see you—I want to see what you look like. My mamma and papa would not bring me down here, so I fooled them and ran away. I am from Springfield." "Great goodness, child, you did not come all the way from Illinois to see me, did you? Why your daddy will be scared to death if you have run away from home." "Oh. they are at the RaJeig.h hotel. I will get back by the time they miss me. I just could not help coming to see you." Speaker Cannon blushed and looked ns pleased as a boy with a new sled. He put Miss Pauline in the chair of honor and found her as bright and sharp as a pin.
