THE DEMOCRATIC KEY-NOTE.
Iii". reading the speech of Alonzo Green Smith ,befoi the Demo
cratic ; convention, Thursday, cne is not impressed with the richness of
its content. It differs very much from the magnificent speech of Hon.
James. E. Watson. Mr Watson ?stutions,isadniitted,and that the consti
of the5 Republican party was the truth and nothing but the trui'i, but
when Mr. Smith said: "That the honor of Indiana has suffered by par
tisan assault upon public institutions, is admitted, and the consti
tution of the state has been repeatedly violated to serve political ends,
is not denied by those i chaige of the state affairs," he was either
willfully misrepresenting the conditions as they exist, or he is ignorant
of them. Why did he not . dv 'u.tt the state institutions are managed
by non-partisan boards and every one of these institutions liHve beer
operated within the appropriation? Every one of them has a b dance
in the treasury.
He said that President Roosevelt was ambitious, unsafe and un
dignified, lie won't say this after the eighth of November, when tnc
people .shall have passed judgmen on the acts of our present chie
In. another place he said the. sentiment of the country has become
distrustful of the present administration and fearful of the con
sequences of President Roosevelt's "extraordinary, erratic and auto
cratic assumption and exercise of jower." It ill becomes Mr. Smith la
speak of the "autocratic assumption of power." People have not for
gotten his autocratic assumption o power when he became the lieuten
ant-governor of Indiana.
All our exchanges are calling attention to May 30th as a memori
al day rather than a holiday. The Commercial-Review of Port' and.
"The demand, the watch wan', of every Grand Army man, of every i
soldier, of every patriotic citizen should make May 30th a memorial
day, not a holiday. Let it be a day for remembrance of the self-sac
rifice, the devotion, the spleiv.lul patriotism of our soldiers, living and
dead; a day for reconsecratiori to country, liberty and the highest
ideal citizenship; a day so patriotically and universally observed
and in such spirit that it shall help and strengthen all for the grat
work of todav and tomorrow, and not a dav for mere amusement, for
personal pleasure, for races and games, for gain and money malasig,
for excursions, frivolity and dissipation. ?
"The desecration of memorial day is yearly becoming more and
more general, open and unblushing, and unless a self-respecting and
patriotic people shall demand a complete return to the original pur
pose and spirit of the day and its services, it is likely to become me
morial day in name only. Tlu selfish perversion of the day is a na
tional shame. The apathy which, permits it is a sign of national
weakness and a decline of the rational gratitude and con science."

to the school children and a great
nuisance. The father and mother are
ill with weakness an dwant of proper
food, and the home is a veritable den
of filth and squalor.
Mrs. Candler investigated the case
and found that conditions were most
shocking, much more so than at first
reported. Doddy came last fall tr.
work, but his health failed him, and
he and his family had no means of
support during the winter, and starv

times. The raiment and food of the
family were scanty and poor, and the
children stole to buy food. The vvu ,

Miss Helen Whitman, 808J Grand
Ave., Milwaukee, Wis., writes :
"There is nothing like Pernna for
that tired feeling, which gives you no
ambition for work or play. After a pro
longed illness, about a year ago I felt
unable to regain my health, but four
bottles of Peruna made a wonderful
change and restored me to perfect health.
As long as you keep your blood in a
good condition you are all right, and
Peruna seems to fill the veins with pure,
healthful blood. I thoroughly endorse

ITirst, repair the injury already done
to your nerves. The way to do this is to
do exactly as did Mr. Ilal. P. Denton,
Chief Department Publicity and Promo
tion of National Export Exposition.
He writes: "Toward the latter part
of August I found myself in a very
much run-down condition. My family
physician said I had nervous prostra
tion and recommended a sea voyage. I
gradually grew worse. A kind friend
whom I had known in Ohio recom
mended Peruna. Though skeptical, I
finally yielded to his advice. After
using one bottle I was much improved
and with the fifth bottle came complete
recovery. I am in perfect health today
and owe everything to Peruna." Hal.

Mrs. D. W. TImberlake, of Lynchburg,
Va., who, in a recent letter, made use of
the following words: " I always take a
dose of Peruna after business houra, as
it is a great thing for the nerves. There
is no better spring tonic, and I have

Catarrh in Spring.
The spring is the best time to treat
catarrh. Nature renews herself every
spring. The system is rejuvenated by
spring weather. This renders medi
cines more effective. A short course of
Peruna, assisted by the balmy air of
springwill cure old, stubborn cases of
catarrh that have resisted treatment for
years. Every body should have a copy
of Dr. Ilartman's latest lookon eatarrh.
