ADVERTISERS GET THEIR MONEY'S WORTH IN THE TIMES. FIFTEEN THOUSAND COPIES OF THE TIMES were circulated in the Calumet region yesterday and advertisers got their money's worth. Three thousand extras went to Gary where the edition was in great demand among the hundreds of out-of-town visitors who wished to carry home a souvenir of the big celebration. This was in addition to the regular Gary edition. One thousand extra copies were distributed and sold In South Chicago for political purposes. The five editions of THE TIMES printed yesterday sold like "wild fire and received many compliments all over Lake county and the Calumet region. Advertisers without extra cost to themselves received the benefit of the biggest edition of a daily the state. An extra edition of two already been ordered for Saturday and copy in by eight o'clock In the morning A PRETTY DISPLAY OF "I am a republican myself, but John In my estimation, Is one of the finest men that this country has today. He Is my brother-in-law by a former marriage, my sister having been his first wife. He has a lovely family. Too bad I missed seeing him when he returned from Denver. This is the first time I have seen him in two years. I sent him a letter of congratulations, and my son, who is in Springfield, Mass., wrote to me saying that he would do all he can to get the votes for John. MRS. E. H- LEWIS. Bravo, for the little Hammond lady who could forget for the moment that she was of opposite faith to the democratic candidate for vice president yesterday and spoke as above after she had welcomed him at the Monon depot in Hammond yesterday by planting a kiss where it would do the most good. Her loyalty to her brother-in-law is commendable. It was a pleasing episode in the great political battle and when the lady said that Mr. Kern 'is one of the finest men In the country" she no doubt echoed the opinions of numerous other friends and admirers of Mr. Kern. Fortunate indeed is he .in his strong following proof of which Is cropping out constantly. THE LOVE OF CHILDREN AND A JUDGE OF LAW. A DISTINGUISHED MASSACHUSETTS JURIST in granting a divorce to a husband, gave the two small children to the erring wife. The unusual .decision was explained in these words: "A mother's love survives the .deepest degredation of which the female nature is capable and it is capable f a lower state than man's nature. When a woman comes into my court claiming the custody of her child I always grant it. She may be a bad woman and yet a good mother at least, the best of not the only mother the child can have. In the way I have at times saved both mother and child. For the eake of the child the mother will at least strive to be virtuous. It is not a rare event for both father and son to be engaged knowingly to each other in crime; it is never the case with mother and child." This may not be the universal law of the land, but it is the inflexible law of nature., children "bring out the best that is in us, jarticularly in the mother. Fresh from the 'liands of their creator, pure and sweet in their innocence and trust and "helpfulness, not contaminated by sinful life, they bloom about us like flowers from Paradise. The wisest and best among us, as well as the lowest and vilest may learn our highest lesson from the little ones and if anything can reclaim B sinful woman it surely would be the little one for whose bringing Into the .world she suffered the exquisite pangs of motherhood.

Don't stand at all in front of the window just then. Why? Because while you have been sleeping your blood has withdrawn itself from the skin surfaces and your nerve forces have concentrated themselves at Inside centers. If you expose yourself under these conditions, unless you are very strong and robust, j'ou are likely to catch your "death of cold." Don't take a cold bath the first thing In the morning after you arise. Why? For like reasons your blood Is not in the surface. It has not been needed there. The bedclothes have kept the skin warm. And a cold plunge at this time, unless you are quite strong, will do you more harm than good. If you take a cold bath immediately after brisk physical exercise, which brings the blood to the outside, or If you take a cold bath following a hot bath, which produces the same effect, you may get some benefit. Don't "drink a glass of cold water as soon as you get out of bed." If you drink anything before breakfast, take a little sip or two of hot water. Why? Because the stomach is not ready to do business before breakfast The blood is withdrawn. If you douche it with cold water at such a time, you chill that organ and derange Its func tions; also, If you pour a lot of hot water into it. you wash out the gastric juices and impede digestion. Don't take violent exercise before breakfast nor immediately following. Why? Because your -vital forces before breakfast are low and need recuperat ing from within. After breakfast the processes of digestion should not be Interfered with until the stomach gets ti chance to begin operations. But you say These don't contravene popular be liefs in some respects and the advice of "health magazines" In others. That may be true, but popular opinions may be wrong, and health magazine! are not Infallible. We have gathered these truths from a hyglenist who has given these mat ters a lifetime study. In his field he Is a good authority. Besides The reasons for these views are given, and they correspond with reason and common sense. RANDOM THINGS AND FLINGS These are halycon days at Falrview.

Mr. Bryan was prompt with a personal letter of acceptance. The cockerel is named "Hoosler" and the pullet "Nebraska" The birds are fine specimens, six months old and beautifully feathered. South Bend, Ind., July 22. That the brewery Interests are preparing t make a strenuous effort to control th-. next Indiana general assembly is at tested by the tactics now being used in the northern part of the state. Th-j interests are trying to obtain the nom inalon of men for the legislature who csn be relied upon as "friendly." A qt'let canvass is now on In St. Joseph county. It is understood the republi can nominees are both regarded as on the other side and influence is be fleers. The afternoon session did not adjourn until after 7 o'clock last night.

Krause, an aged florist of Crawfordsville was cleaning a bee hive of moths, a mad bee stung him on the thumb. At first he paid no atten tion to it, but soon ho began to feel badly. His lips and tongue swelled. His tongue became so enlarged that he could not talk. After the physician had given Krause three hypodermic injections he rallied. This case is un usual, the physician stating that Krause was extraordinarily susceptible to the bee poison. tng brought to bear to make the demo cratic ticket of the proper sort, accord ing to brewery Ideals. Joseph E. Bell of Tndtanapolts, who Is the right hand man of Thomas Tag gart, arrived In South Bend last even Ing and has been busy ever since. H" has had conferences with the locil liquor Interests and it is understo.ij to have told them what is expected of them. It is understood that two prosp?e tlve candidates for the democratic nom inations have been decided on. Th-; names of the men have not been given out, although it is said that one of them is from South Bend and the Other from MIshawaka. Mr. Bell is asserted to have approved both of th - selections. It is understood that !n the pursuit of his efforts for tho brewers he passes upon all prospectl f: candidates. The managers of the independence party expect a large and representa tive attendance at the party's national convention in Chicago next week to name candidates for president and vlc. president. Outside of Mr. Hearst, the leading candidate for the head of the ticket is said to be Thomas L. Hlsgeu of Massachusetts. Senator Hemenway of Indian Speaker Cannon and Congressman W. B. McKinley of Illinois have been spending a short vacation at Mackinaw Island, resting up after the activities of the recent Chicago convention and incidentally discussing plans for the coming republican campaign in ths west. Republicans of Tennessee are at a lrss to find a suitable candidate fo governor, though they believe the chances for republican success this year aro better than ever before. George N. Tilman of Nashville wis prominently mentioned for the held of the ticket, but he has declined to become a candidate on account of ill health. Frank IT. Hitchcock, the new chair man of the republican national com mittee, was born In Ohio, but has live! nearly all his life in Massachusetts. Almost immediately after his gradua t!on from Harvard in 1SD1 he entered the government service as a clerk 1n the department of agriculture at Wash ington. lt Is announced that the speakers' bureau of the democratic state com mittee will be opened next Monday, with Gilbert Hendrpn of Bloomfleld in charge. It is also announced that Bryan will not make a tour of Indiana in a pp-?-clal train and that rrobably the onlv tlme he will be heard in the Hoosler state will b on the occasion of the notification of John W. Kern, when Bryan will speak. Tt has not been de cided where that ceremonial will tak place, but the Coliseum at the fair grounds in Indianapolis is generally favored. The fact that Bryan canno bo had for a series of rear platform jtpohes in Indiana will be a serious dlsnpointment !n many sections of ths state, where the loyal Bryan followers are hoping for a visit from their Idol.

While I have been introduced to you as a candidate for a high office, I will not thlr.k of violating the pro prieties of the occasion by saying a single word on the subject of politics, or n single word in so far as I may avoid It to mar the pleasure of the occasion. Doesn't Have To Talk Politics. Fortunately ther are many things about which we American citizens may talk without talking polltlrs. It Is fortunate that we have so many things in common, besides have never seen very much sense in men quarreling be cause they happen to differ on matters of politics or religion. I have always been more than will ing to yield to my political adversary the same liberty of conscience and opinion as I take for myself and I think Just as well of the man who votes the other ticket, providing he votes It honestly and conscientiously, Kern Yesterday president on the democratic ticket Norton, yesterday, on board the E. ar I do of the man who votes my ticket.
