The Cause of Many
8 Sudden Deaths.
There is a disease prevailing in this
COQHtry most
dangerous because so decep
tive. Many sudden
I
I deaths are caused
by it—heart dis
ease, pneumonia
heart failure or
apoplexy are often
the result of kid
ney disease. If

ed blood will at
tack the vital organs, causing catarrh oi
the bladder, or the kidneys themselves
break down and waste away cell by cell.
Bladder troubles almost always result
from a derangement of the kidneys and
a cure is obtained quickest by a proper
(treatment of the kidneys. If you are feel
ing badly you can make no mistake by
•taking Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the
great kidney, liver and bladder remedy.
It corrects inability to hold urine and
scalding pain in passing it, and over
comes that unpleasant necessity of'beixig
compelled to go often through the day,
and to get up many times during the
ight. The mild and the extraordinary
effect of Swamp-Root is soon realized.
It stands the highest for its wonderful
cures of the most distressing cases.
Swamp-Root is pleasant to take and Is
sold by all druggists in fifty-cent and
one-dollar size bottles. You may have a
sample bottle of this wonderful new dis
covery and a book that tells all about it,
both sent free by mail. Address, Dr. Kil
mer & Co., Binghamton, N. Y. When
writing mention reading this generous
offer in this paper. Don't make any
mistake, but remember the name,
Swamp-
Root, Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, and the
address, Binghamton, N. Y., on every
bottle.

A SLIGHT DIFFERENCE.
Only a few weeks ago the New York
Sun in startling linos editorially de
clared that Roosevelt had taken the
first step to begin a war between tills
country and Japan that in sending our
big fleet of war vessels on a trip
around the world we virtually placed
a chip on our shoulders and invited
the Japanese to knock It off hat the
Atlantic coast being left unprotected,
it was only a question of a short time
before the Japs would be shelling New
York City unless money to the amount
of millions was raised to placato
them. As a jingo the Sun article was
the limit, lesser lights In the newspa
per world hating Roosevelt, boing ex
tinguished.
But a day or so ago this country
received a very cordial invitation from
Japan for this same fleet to stop at
Japanese ports and receive the hospi
tality of the Japanese people. Already
preparations are being made for en
tertainment that will eclipse f.ny for
mer function of like nature. We can
now look for a declaration in the Sun
showing this later step on the part of
the Japs to be a trap, whereby they
will capture our whole fleet, make all
of our navy officials and marines
'walk the plank." then man our sixteen
war ships with Japanese sailors, cruise
across the big pond with their oig navy
thus reinforced, and capture every city
on our Atlantic coast from the Gulf
of Mexico to (hat of Maine. It is to bv
loped their fighting force will not
each Towa before we have time to
build a few mud forts and call out the
state troops.
Seriously, it if a curious combina
tion of circumstances that niakrs a
factor of national peace, to dnd the
wily Japs quick to take the advantage
of stowing their jingoes, what a for
midable force they would have to meet
if they started a war with the United
States. And If It takes sixteen war
vessels to quiet the jingoes of Japan,
how many would be necessary to quiet
the New York Sun and other,..anti
Roostvclt papers? Mi..
TIME FOR REVISION.
It will be recalled that it was when
Governor Cummins declared for re
vision of the tariff to immediately fol
low the last presidential election that
the Iowa standpatters broke forth in a
tirade of factionalism directed toward
him. Governor Cummins has always
stood for a timely revision of the tar
iff as well as a business revision. And
It is known of all men everywhere that
Cummins has always advocated a re
vision of the tariff by Its friends and
as a measure for the perfecting and
preserving of the policy of .protection
as distinguished from any revision in
the direction of a. strictly revenue tar
iff. There has been no controversy
over this.
Then It Is also recalled that as
against the Cummins view there was
set up the opposing: view that tariff
revision by republicans would be dan
gerous and that tariff revision
after election or before elec
tion would be disastrous. The rabid
antls mouthed the words "tariff rip
pers" until they actually made a great
many people In Iowa, believe that
tariff revision as advocated by Gover
nor Cummins and given voice in sev
eral Iowa republican platforms, was a
most reprehensible thing and wholly
un-republlcan.
Now comes the Iowa republicans, a*
a united party, declaring definitely for
tariff revision and Indicating, Just as
Governor Cummins did four years ago,
that this revision should come as soon
as possible. A special session of con
gress was urged then and it Is to be
urged now.
The time for revision Is Important
only from a purely factional or political
aspect. The only reason which can be
urged for not having the revision made
at some other time than following a
national ele'ction Is the danger of such
a political controversy as would en
danger party success. Against this
might properly be urged that revision
before election, If such revision was
done properly and to the credit of the
revisers, would be a distinct advantage
In the election. Usually performance
Is better than promises. Those who

are now professing devotion to tariff

be done then there must be tariff re

is committed. To this the republi

mitted.
THE BARS ARE UP.
•Recent events have moved various
departments of the government to in
augurate a concerted effort to clean the
Augean stables of anarchy. Anurclilc
and Black Hand crimes have recurred
with such frequency and the circula
tion of seditious literature has grown
so bold that extreme measures have
been deemed nocessary.
The government In the past has
been altogether too lenient, and its
quiescent attitude has Invited the
scum of the old world to come here
and practice and preach its vicious
teachings. Anarchy has no place or
part in our government. It Is an old
world plague, the germs of which are
fostered by and thrive in poverty and
Ignorance and under forms of govern
ment and conditions of society in
themselves pernicious. It Is encourag
ing to note that during the past year
63.000 objectionable immigrants were
vfused landing on our shores. Yet the
mmigration laws, either thru lack of
effectiveness or dereliction on the part
of inspection and police officers, havo
permitted many others to come.
Now it is announced that the de
partments "of commerce and labor, jus
tice and postoffice. have agreed to join
forces In an effort to exterminate a
growing evil. The statute on treason is
to be revived and used as a weapon
against the followers of the red flag.
Immigration Inspectors and peace of
ficers will co-operate in securing evi
dence on which to deport anarchists
already here and to bar others who
seek to land. Promises of wholesale
prosecutions are made.
The bounds of free speech and the
privileges of liberty have been trans
gressed until the reds have become a
real menace. This nation will welcome
honest, healthy and intelligent foreign
ers seeking new homes and to better
their condition, but certificates of char
acter must be first class. N"otice is
served that tho bars are up to the
Czolgoszes, the Alios, the .Averbachs
and the Goldmans.
Topics of the Times
Presumably Lafe will continue to
pose as "the original Taft man" when
everybody knows that only last year
he was trying to work up a. boom for
a reactionary and declaring Taft to be
an impossibility. «•,.
One thing Major Lacey forgot to
put into the platform was the exact
date when tariff revision ceased to be
unrepublican and the time had arrived
for becoming a revisionist.
Just suppose the progressives had
been in control of the convention and
had adopted that platform, what would
the original high protective fire eaters
have been saying by this time?
If senatorial matters are to be dis
posed of In conventions and not left to
the vote of the people, what becomes
of the plan of having the people ex
press their preferences? Republican
voters who didn't happen to have a
voice In the recent state convention
may feel that they still have the last"
say.
A few years ago a state convention
was held in Des Moines and there was
such a feeling among the defeated
standpatters that many of them in
dulged in ugly words in the hotel lob
bies. A Fifth district congressman be
came especially offensive by his threats
and his anger. In that case the minor
ity understood perfectly well that they
had been whipped so badly that they
were mad about it. At the recent
state convention in Des Moines the so
called minority was In a most amiable
mood, and If they were whipped they
didn't know it. The fact is that Inso
far as the convention had any effect in
the senatorial matter it was not de
cisive and did not even suggest the
trend of the times.

IOWA OPINIONS AND NOTES

"Relieve there Is a standpatter In Iowa
who Is sincere in his endorsement of
Taft for the presidency."
The Auburn Recorder advises its
readers "to encourage more factories
to come and leave the electric railways
to other towns."
"As a matter of fact any changes hi
the laws—any amendments—must be
offered by republicans, supported by
republlcans and passed by republican
votes," notes the Davenport Times. "It
ought to be apparent, therefore, that to
tight republicans is not the quickest
way to get results if any considerable
number of people desire to have any
particular law amended."
The Mason City'Times-Herahl be
lieves that so far as anarchists are
concerned, "our exports ought to ex
ceed our iipports by a very large ma
jority."
"Lafe Young nor John li\ Lacey seri
ously cares what the tarilT utterance
may be if the leading strings of pat
ronage are in'their hands," says the
Dubuque Telegraph.
Referring to democrats and their
prospects in the coming campaign the
Muscatine Journal says: "Jor shall
we now deny them hope. Still It is
not good for one, who has hoped and
fought for years for some desired end,
to come to believe too confidently that
at last that end is about to be attained,
and then to lose as tgnominiously as In
the years that have passed."
The Sioux City Tribune can see that
"the legislation as to the number or
hours an operator may work will have
the effect of removing the telegraph
and installing the telephone for the
running of trains."
"There are so many fires In schools,
theaters and other public places" that
the Clinton Herald fears "nervous peo

AN U.VJUST CRITICISM.
(Manson Journal.)
There has been more or less criti
cism of the progressive element of the
republican party for not making a
fight in the last caucuses. Such criti
cism is unnecessary and ill timed, for
there werfe many elements which in
duced the progressives to let matters
go largely by default instead of mak
ing a fight over a non-essential ques
tion. Up in Woodbury county, where
the progressives are far in the lead,
they did not attend the caucuses at
all, letting the Allison men have the
delegation without protest, believing It
were better to save their strength un
til the proper time comes, when the
question can be fought out on its mer
its without entangling other matters.
The Cummins voters will be on hand
when the second of June comes, and
what is more they will not be around
threatening to knife the ticket if they

CSAN'T RE iHURRIE'D.
(Cedar Rapids Gazette)
Most reforms are of slow growth.
Naturally spelling reform, which does
not vitally affect the lives or for
tunes of a people, will be of very slow
growth. Hence it is that when one
man or a few men attempt to make an
arbitrary spelling rule whereby the or
thography of so many words is radi
cally changed, such attempts results in
failure. Any movement which has the
appearance of an attempt to "make
over" the language in a day is pre
destined to failure and especially
when, as in recent attempts, there Is
a too apparent effort to affect us with
the John Billings style of orthography.
Improve the language by the use of
simplified spelling just as rapidly as it
is practicable. In bringing about sim
plification it may eventually even be

A SENSELESS CHARGE

the least suspicion that they have not
been spent for the most laudable pur
poses? And do Iowans desire the leg

their magnificent commonwealth, the
richest of all naturally, fall behind
others in the march toward better
things? Would Iowans contemplate
complacently the thought that their

Is ther a citizen of the state who
Is not proud of every one of the state

citizen who Is not glad that the state
provides with such euro and tender
ness for those with whom destiny has
seemingly dealt unkindly? Is there a
citizen who would call a hult In this
magnificent work of upbuilding In
Towa? There certainly cannot be. On
these questions of expenditure along
the lines here mentioned, when there
Is not a democrat who will raise his
voice In protest, there certainly ought
not to be a republican to cry out. And
these arc the chief drains on the state
treasury.

GET A HOME.
(Des Moines Capital.)
Everj' man drawing a fair salary or
a reasonable wage can secure a home
of his own, if he shall make the effort.
He need not build extravagantly. He
should build with as little expenditure,
as possible, and build with the plan
to build an addition when the proper
time arrives. If he cannot build but
two rooms, he should build those. At
another time he can build other rooms.
The ground can be bought almost en
tirely on credit,'at a low rate of inter
est. Men who work but eight hours
a day could do a great deal coward
building their own cottages. We be
lieve that a wage worker having $150
to start on can, if he shall try, get a
lot and build a little home on such
terms and by such an arrangement as
will enable him to pay out. Then, af
ter the Uttle place is built, economy
should btj introduced, little savings
should be accomplished. Saving is a
source of enjoyment when once en
tered upon. If cigars and beer have
to be cut off, so much the better.
Springtime and the birds are with us.
The grass and trees will soon be lur

Both will be good investments.
REVERSING THE SITUATION.
(Sioux City Journal.)
If President Gompers' wishes to
comprehend the sort of injustice he is
asking as a right for labor let him
imagine the situation reversed. Sup
pose the Industrial association, or some
other organization of employers, were
asking congress to legalize the black
list, what would labor have to say
about it? With the blacklist employ
ers try to prevent men who have been
active In the causes of unionism from
securing employment. The blacklist is
of the same piece from which the
boycott wa.s cut. It Is, in fact, a
boycott of labor on the part of organ
ized employers. It Is an outrage on
the rights of labor—just such, an out
rage as the boycott Is on the rights of
employers. With organized employers
using the blacklist, the use of the boy
cott by organized employes can be de
fended. With organized employes
using the boycott use of the blacklist
by employers can be defended. Both
are expedients of industrial warfare,
and while one Is tolerated the other
must likewise be tolerated as a meas
ure of retaliation. But there Is no
place In a free country for either the
boycott or the blacklist. If both are
condemned by law, labor and capi
tal are assured a square deal. The ef
fort to approve the one and condemn
the other must Inevitably be disap
proved as class legislation, contrary
to the spirit of our institutions.

The way to secure the larger yield
is to breed better cows. It is the pur
pose of the Iowa Dairy Cattle Im
provement association, which was or
ganized at the last meeting of the
State Dairy association, to awaken an
interest In such stock. Suppose an
average gain of 50 pounds of butter
fat per year wore made for each cow.
That would mean $10 more per cow.
There are over 1,500,000 cows in the
stat'*. If their average yearly returns
could be increased $10 it would mean
$15,000,000 more for Iowa farmers.
Worth working for, isn't it?
Co-operation must be the watch
word. All breeds are to be treated
alike and ail breed prejudice is to be
set aside in favor of dairy cattle. That
Is what Iowa needs—better dairy cat
tle. Every man who milks cows ought
to help in this great work.

On the border line between winter

They seem to anticipate the change
that is coming. They are apt to tire
of the winter feed, and unexpected
loss of flesh und strength may result.
Vary the feed as much as possible
this time of year.
Sheep require special care.' "Ewes
and lambs should be sheltered from
the cold spring rains. Our experience
is that it is not enough to furnish the
shelter: the sheep must be put in and
shut up. It is seldom that sheep will
voluntarily seek shelter from the

Tree Planting.
It is a lamentable fact that a large
part of the trees planted are put into
the ground just as they come from the
nursery, without pruning either root
or branch often put into holes too
small to admit the roots without being
cramped, and without any fine rich soil
for the roots to feed upon. It Is no
wonder that so many trees die of star
vation the first season, or linger along
for years without making a satisfac
tory growth.
All trees when received from the
nursery should be put at once Into a
cellar, or some tight shed or stable,
where the roots will be entirely secure
from sun and wind, and the ends of
every bruised root cut smooth with a
sharp knife, cutting from the under
side, and any very long root shortened.
If tho land is not ready for planting,
they should be at once "heeled In" In
.some sheltered spot, and left until the
ground is ready for them.
No tree should be planted till the
water has dried out enough so that the
soil will crumble in the hand and can
be filled in compactly among the
roots. Dig holes large enough so that
at least six inches of fine earth can
be put in the hole under the tree to
be planted, and have the hole at least
ten inches larger in diameter than the
roots of the tree. Place the tree in
the hole with the heaviest part of the
top to the southeast, that being the
direction of the prevailing wind dur
ing the growing season. Now get right
down on your knees, grasp the tree
with the left hand to hold it upright,
and with the right hand work in fine
soil among the roots. As soon as the
roots are well covered, get into the
hole, and with the foot press the soil
firmly around the roots. Now put in
about three inches more dirt and press
It down again, and keep on in this way
until the hole is nearly full. Have
two inches of loose soil on top. Give
thorough cultivation the first season at
least. One tree planted in this way is
worth half a dozen planted in the or
dinary way.
