Crowd Attending Democratic
Meeting at Coliseum
About four Hundred people, a fourth
of the number women and children,
assembled at the coliseum last even
ing to hear that peerless, silver
throated orator of the Chicago river
the Hon. J. Ham Lewis, whose classic
whiskers will be preserved for the ad
miration of future generations by the
pencil of that master cartoonist, John
T. McCutcheon, but the "crowd" was
doomed to disappointment, for the
Bean Brummel of Cook county demo
cracy was among the missing. It was
explained to the audience that the
Hon. J. Ham had at the last moment
been unable to tear himself away from
that dear Chicago.
No sooner had this 'announcement
been made than people began to sepa
rate themselves fr'cr.' the "vast assem
blage" and filter t:.-i'.nigh the doors
onto the street. 4 By tl.e time James
Manahan, vice chairman ot the demo
cratic national speakers' bureau, who
had been subpoenaed to substitute for
Mr. Lewis, finished his "exposition" of
the evils of republican rule he was
decidedly a lonesome man.
Mr. Manahan began his address by
requesting the audience to assemble
on the front row of chairs so it would
not be so hard for him to talk. He
was not prepared to throw his burn
ing vocabulary into every section of
the big building because this was to
be, his first speech of the campaign.
Campaign of Education.
Mr. Manahan stated the prime ob
ject of the democratic party this cam
paign was to educate the voters. Ac
complishing this he was certain Mr.
Bryan would be elected, because he
could not see how an educated man
could under any consideration vote
for Taft. If this is not cuoting Mr.
Manahan literally It U, at least, giv
ing the tense of his remarks.
Speaking on the guarantee of bank
deposits the speaker' stated that Mr.
Bryan was for the poor man. but that
Taft stood for Wall street. He also
stated that the only revision of the
tariff Taft favored wa? to boost the
rates higher. He said that Bryan fav
ored placing every article In competi
tion with trust made gooTs on the free
list. Mr. Manahan's remarks were
frequently interrupted with applause.
Mr. Manahan was introduced to the
audience by the Hon, Joshua Allen, of
Hagerstown. Mr. Allen was particul
arly fiery in his remarks. He charged
the republicans with nearly every evil
except the present drought.
You Can Have a Cool Kitchen.
A soap that can be used without
boiling is a great blessing to woman
kind. Its use means the absence of
those steamy, sudsy smells that makes
wash day intolerable. Think of avoid
ing the roasting fires, and the big fuel
bills that go with them. All this com
fort may be had by the users of Easy
Task soap. Isn't it worth a trial? 5c

Men in Railway Mail Service
May Be Allowed Ex
penses by Govt.
The clerks in the railway mall ser
vice have been making a fight for
some years to secure an allowance
from the government covering their
expenses while they are on duty. The
matter was brought to the attention of
congress but that body has taken no
action. A particular effort is being
made to secure favorable legislation to
this end this year and the clerks are
regarding as of special significance,
the following order which has recent
ly been transmitted to them from the
postoffice department: .
To all Clerks: Please keep a record
during the month of September, 1908,
of the actual expense incurred by you
while on duty; that is from the time
you record your departure from the in
itial of your run until you record ar

"The accounts should be itemized so
as to show what money is expended
for, such- as breakfast, dinner, supper,
lodging, etc., and the date on which
the expense is incurred. The ac
counts should be sent to this office by
each clerk for the weeks ending Sep
tember 4, 12, 19, 20 and for the four
days ending at midnight of the 30th.
Please give this matter special atten
tion and submit reports promptly at

North D Street Torn Up by
Traction Company.
The construction gang putting in
the new tracks on North D street was
engaged today in placing the curve.
The gang has been working rapidly
and expects to have the curve placed
and the tracks ballasted by this ev
ening. North D street was repaired
and put in the best shape of its his
tory only a few months ago. The ex
cavation dug by the traction company
to place its tracks and the entire
street traffic that necessarily was re
stricted to a small section of the road,
has cut up the street's surfact so that
it will have to be repaired again,
when the work on the tracks is com
pleted. 310 YOU HEAR IT?
Parents and School Teachers
Driven to Distraction.
Did you hear It? It was heard all
over the city since certain enterpris
ing Main street merchants distributed
the noise making machines yesterday
afternoon among the school children.
Parents were driven distracted last
night and today the school teachers
found life one prolonged period of
misery and headache. But the glee
ful kids were happy and the merchants
were being advertised. The machines
that made a noise like a wooden
throated cricket were to be seen in
the clasped hand or protruding from
the pocket of almost every youngster,
and long before the distributing store
was open this morning, there was a
line of youngsters, who were not on
hand yesterday, clamoring to obtain
one of the noise-making contrivances.
A Paying Investment.
Mr. John White, of 38 Highland
Ave., Houlton, Maine, says: "Have
been troubled with a cough every win
ter and spring. Last winter I tried
many advertised remedies, but the
cough continued until I bought a 50c.
bottle of Dr. King's New Discovery;
before that was half gone, the cough
was all gone. This winter the same
happy result has followed ; a few doses
once more banished the annual cough.
I am now convinced that Dr. King's
New Discovery is the best of all cough
and lung remedies." Sold under guar
antee at A. G. Luken & Co. drug store.

Many Deaths of Children in
Indiana Due to Food
As compared with the correspond
ing month of 1907. the report of dis
eases and deaths in Indiana during
August of this year is an improve
ment. Both the death and sick rates
are lower. However, the state board
of health claims the Improvement
could easily have been 30 per cent
greater than It was through the prac
tical application to every day life of
the well known laws of health. The
board claims there is too little atten
tion paid to exercising the most com
monplace precautions .and consequent
ly disease spreads.
The August buHetl.i of the board
gives the following nummary of dis
ease and death during the past
month :
Diarrhoea was reported as the most
prevalent disease; typhoid fever waa
second; cholera infantum, third; chol
era morbus, fourth and dysentery,
fifth. All these diseases were caused
by food poisoning.
Tuberculosis caused 290 deaths. In
the corresponding month last year,
377. Consumption caused an average
of 11 deaths every day.
The 405 deaths from diarrhoeal dis
eases under five years of age corstl
tute a coment upon our intelligence,
because they were all caused by feed
ing poisoned food to children. We sin
cerely hope the people will listen to
the teachings of hygiene and see to it
that sterile and non-poisonous foods
are. used. This is simply a matter of
intelligence and care.
' Violence caused 220 deaths, 173
males and 47 females. Of these vio
lent deaths 8 were murders. 32 sui
cides and the remainder accidents. Of
the murders, 6 were males and 2 fe
males. Of the accidental deaths, 39
were caused by steam railroads, 4 by
street cars and interurbans, 2 by auto
mobiles, 17 by crushing injuries, 11
by scalds and burns, 8 by gun .shots,
32 by drowning, 13 by fall3. 13 by
horses and vehicles, 6 by lightning, 5
by poisons, 3 by sun strokes and the
remainder by various ways.
The total number of deaths was
2,901. The death rate 12.5. In the
corresponding month last year 3.3S0
deaths, the death rate 14.8. The city
death rate was 15.1, the country death
rate 11.2. Of the cities having over
40,000 population, the death rates
were as follows: Indianapolis, 14.2;
Evansville, 14.6; Ft Wayne, 16.1;
Terre Haute, 15.9; South Bend, 17.8.
Condition, It Is Feared, Will
Cause Disease.
Milton, Ind., Sept. 24. The low level
of the water In the old canal has be
come a cause for serious alarm to lo
cal citizens. The water is so low
that it does not follow the grade and i
has become stagnant. A green scum" j
has collected upon the surface and an
unpleasant odor arises. It is feared
that the condition will prove the cause
of disease.
How to get Strong.
P. J. Daly, of 1247 Congress SL,
Chicago, tells of a way to become
strong. He says: "My mother, who is
old and was very feeble, is deriving
so much benefit from Electric Bitters,
that I feel it's my duty to tell those
who need a tonic and strengthening
medicine about it. In my mother's
case a marked gain in flesh has re
sulted. Insomnia has been overcome
and she is steadily growing stronger."
