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

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.
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
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

too often undeserved but in the capi

rears above its fellows monumental
of the life and services of Charles Aid
rich, father and curator of the histori

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

gret and sorrow of the living, is to
have lived and died well. So lived
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-
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-
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

pected, tho the outlook is by no means

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-\

situation that prejudices the chances
