The race for the Democratic nomination for governor promises to be the most Interesting; thing that has happened within the party in Indiana for many yar. This is the first time since lVJfi that there has been more than one avowed candidate for the honor. In several conventions since the first nomination of Bryan the democrats in Indiana have been obliged to draft men for the state ticket. The pres ent (scramble is regarded by demo crats as an evidence of coming suc cess in the state. Nomination for various state offices was considered tn empty and costly honor until this year. Now there are more candidates union g the democrats than among the republicans. The action of the com mitter in fixing an early date for tho convention will force the candidates to work day and night to get into the va rious counties before tne delegations ure named. Chairman Jackson will immediately issue the call for the con vention. It is now believed that the race for governor will be between Samuel M. Ralston of Lebanon, and Senator L. Ert Slack, of Franklin, with Thomas Marshall, of Columbia City: C. K. Mc Culiough. of Anderson, and Rev. Thomas Kuhn. of Richmond, on even terms for third place. Senator Slack's official announce ment has just been published, but he lias been an active candidate for the last two years. He has spoken in half 01 the counties, and has worked among the reform clement in a very ener getic manner. It would not be sur prising if he should be known as the reform candidate, inasmuch as it is thought that Ralston lias the backing of the state machine, Ralston is better known than either uf his opponents. He was on I he ticket twice for secretary of state and he has campaigned in every county. He was Chairmau of the state conven tion In 1904. and he sounded the key note of the last state campaign whon he was called on to give Governor JLanly a "good skinning." He went after him in a vigorous fashion, that attracted a great deal of attention. Unless the anti-Taggart forces are educated very quickly to believe that Ralston is the candidate of the ma chine and the brewery combine he will be the man the field will have to beat. 5 Jut what proportions the McCul lough boom will assume is hard to lell. MeCulIough is one of the lead ing business men of the state. He rep resented the business interests dur ing the last legislature very fairly and made a record that entitled him to the consideration of his party. He is not ft spell binder, but it is pointed out on 1 his behalf that this is a time when business men are desired for public of iice and that he could give the state! a high grade, business administration. Rev. Kuhn has visited many coun ties, and he will have a very consider able following. He is a member of Hie Christina church, which has the reputation in Indiana of helping its own in matters political. Many of the radical temperance people are tak ing to Rev. Kuhn. feeling that his training as a minister will cause him to take a stand for the right on every question. Rev. Kuhn posed for some time as an anti-Taggart candidate, but ho has said nothing on that score late ly. In addition to these avowed candi dates for Governor, the names of Congressman J. A. M. Adair, of Port land, and B. F. Shiveley. of South Bend, are mentioned. Neither are candidates, but they may be later. Congressman Adair wants to get into the race for Governor if he can con sistently get out of running for Con gress in the Eighth District. He is now looked on as one of the hig men of his party in Indiana, and Democrats generally regard him as to many or trio men who are on the in- i side of the organization, but they have made up their mind to swallow it and look as pleasant as possible. Their hope now is that the sins of the party will be washed away when the convention declares in favor of lo cal option. Immediately afterward, the claim will be made that the Dem ocrats were first to take a stand for lo cal option, bur. nothing will be said about, the legislative record. SPEED OF ANIMALS.

The following Interesting letter con cerning the relative speed of animals appeared in the London Field: The fastest animal we have is the greyhound. The next are the race horse, the red deer and the hare, and then comes the good, big, bold dog for, which is a fine galloper on good ! going. In comparison with any of the above the fastest foxhound on sound flat turf is as slow as a man mowing grass for haymaking. But if you radically alter the trial ground the above does not hold good. For Instance, ou rough clods, whether melted or not, a bare cannot run at all; hence she gen erally takes care not to go there, and where greyhounds are kept she habitu ally lies in her form near the fringe of a rough fallow that when coursed she may quickly be on good going. With such long, powerful bind legs a hare can beat anything up a steep bill. A foxhound can easily beat any horse over deep clay plow, because the horse weighs as much as twelve hounds and therefore sinks deeply. In stag hunt ing the red deer tires earlier than the blood hunter, though the horse may not be faster, but great consideration must be made for the discretion of a good horseman, who avoids exhausting deep ground which the deer plods through. A run of eight miles within the hour in either of the three wet wintry months would leave the body of the field behind, but it would be easy to a riding man on a galloping horse when the March winds have dried the coun try and the obstacles are only ordinary.

Nsme Tie Urgaa That Enliln the Hrml apltrrea to Act In Harmony. Near the base of every well organ ized human brain there is situated a curious little spongy body called the corpus eallosuai. This till important little organ consists of a double chain of white nerve fibers, aud it is through these that the two portions (hemi spheres) of the brain are enabled to act in harmony by being continually brought into anatomical and physiolog ical relations with, each other. Several years ago a well known Phil adelphia physician and surgeon, Dr. A. H. Stevens, made the announcement that, in his belief, the corpus callosum was the seat of the soul. His peculiar Ideas were given quite au airing through the press at that time, but the whole theory fell pretty flat when Dr. A. F. Sawyer of San Francisco proved that a certain west coast worthy had survived twenty years after having the entire corpus callosum shot out of his thought tank and that another bad Rved eleven years after sustaining a similar injury. The psychologists were pretty well agreed that a man's life would terminate the moment his soul made its exit on the lead of a pistol cartridge. It was these well attested cases of men living after losing the cor pus callosum that caused Dr. Stevens' "soul theory"' to relapse into obscurity.

Through the dangerous channels of the west ern portion of Magellan strait, navi gating with extreme caution until Cape Pillar, the westernmost point of the southern side of the strait, has been left well behind, and the waters of the broad Pacific fairly entered, the American battleship fleet aud torpedo boat destroyer flotilla now continue their remarkable cruise. From Punta Arenas their course lies southward to Cape Froward, the southernmost point on the mainland of South America. From Cape Froward the strait turns and extends 15n miles in a northwest erly direction. After Cape Pillar has ben cleared the battleships' prows will be turned northward and a course laid along the Chilean coast to a point off Valparaiso and thence to Callao.

WILLIAM ROSSITER IN PRETTY MESS SURPRISE GIVEN DEPUTY SHIRIFFS Many Owed Poll Tax and Will Get No Pay. Muncie, Ind., Feb. 10 The "sorest"' crowd of former deputy sheriffs that ever assembled in any community probably are the several hundred who are now reporting at the county treas urer's office to receive pay for servic es rendered during the Muncie riots in January. And the reason 'is that, so many of them owed poll tax and this is being deducted from the amount due them as deputy sheriffs, or their fees as of ficers are being credited on their de linquent taxes. They received pay at the rate of $2 a day while on duty, but so many of them owed taxes to the county that there is reason to believe a considerable part of the $4,000 ap propriated for their payment will re main in the county treasury, while men who neer bt-fore were aware that they possessed polls will be able to show tax receipts for the first time in their lives. Amusing incidents happen every hour in the treasurer's office now. Treasury Department Refus es to Approve Bond. Washington, Feb. lo. William S.
