FITZGIBBONS, Editor and Business Manager DEATH OF H. C. PAYNE. ' In the death of Henry C. Payne, jostinaster-g-eneral, this nation loses a splendid citizen. For more than two decades Mr. Payne lnul been a conspicuous char acter in State and National politics. In business as well as in politics he always mantained the confidence and trust -of men dealing with large af fairs. He was born in Ashfield, Mass., November 23, 1843, and re ceived a home training calculated to develop habits of industry and to fit him for a life of usefulness. His ancestors were Puritans, his lamer having been the descendant of an Englishman who settled in Braintree, Mass., in 1630. Young- Payne was educated in the ShelbHrne Falls Academy, graduating in lSSO. He removed to Milwaukee in lSfiS, aild for four years was a ckik in a dry goods store. He speed ily forged to the front, however, pos sessing a surplus energy that enabled him t take a eading part in public movements. In 1S7G he married Lydia W. Van Dyke, and that event he al wavs con sidered as the date from which he reckoned Ins rise to lame ami propserity. In 1S72 he first became noted in politics. Almost instantly he sprang into prominence, being selected as the representative of "Wisconsin on the Republican national committee. Then for ten years he 'was postmaster in Milwaukee, retiring in 1SS6. The political success of Mr. Payne is considered to have been remark able. He knew intimately 'men and conditions, and he was always pacific in his methods. The rank and file were taken into his confidence, and apparently he never forgot that party interests should always be above in dividual interests. It is said of him that when diflieulties arose he disarmed personal opposition by tolerance and overcame diflieulties by tactful con cessions. He was assertive, but rarely dogmatic, and few men pos sessed greater ability to make and re tain friends "While unassuming in manner, he was unswerving in adher ence to conscientious political con victions. He often used to say that the greatest political disappointment lie ever had was when he failed to persuade Governor Hoard to recede from the position he ook on the Ben nett law Feeling that there was no demand for the law, which he called a useless and unfortunate piece of leg islation, Payne did all he could to convince Hoard of the fact, but fail ed. He conceded the right of Hoard to force an issue on himself, but de- nicd that he had any right to froce fhe issue on the Republican party. , In his private life Mr. Payne was liberal in his charities, broad in his ' interest in public affairs and civic, progress, and generous in his sympa- thies. His kindly nature was prover bial. This was shown especially in his treatment of his invalid wife. The latter had been ailing for years, and peopel in Milwaukee recall the famil iar daily sigjftof the husband wheel ing her along the sidewalks adjacent to their hom& and carrying her back and forth f(om the vehicle to the house. Since Mr. Payne's appointment as Postmaster-General- on January S, 1902, he had becom?,if that were pos- j sable, a more busy man than he had previously been. But he dearly loved to play whist, and often engaged old friends in his favorite .pa stitne. ijje was a communicant of the Episcopal church, to wlnen"!ie'"wl!s'beiralTfut um!

The October House Beautiful is one of the strongest numbers of this always delightful magazine. From cover to cover it is packed full of interesting and helpful suggestions. Among notable articles may be men tioned "A House Designed by a Woman," by Virginia Robie, in which is described a charming home in Buffalo, built without the aid of either architect or contractor. There are many timely hints here ior house-builders. Elizabeth Emery's forceful contribution, "The Vital Things in the Home," is one of the best articles of the kind that has come to our notice. It should be read by every woman interested in the welfare- of her home. Oliver Coleman's little sermon on "The Bric-a-Brac Habit" should also be taken to heart. "This habit," writes Mr. Coleman, "is a bad habit and like most vices, often comes from an over-indulgence in an en tirely proper pleasure." The Exposition furnishes two in teresting themes, "Curious Philip pine Houses," ana "Arts and Crafts at the Fair." The Philip pine Houses," and "Arts and Crafts at the Fair." The Philip- P arneie is illustrated with the picturesque Damooo ana nipa dwell ings of the various tribes forming the Philippine Reservation. The house of the Tree-Dwelling Moros, which is without doubt the most uni- t iiic asuiuu, usea as a cover design, in the arts- and crafts field, Jean Hamilton , writes entertainingly of pottery, met al-work, furniture, etc. Mrs. Henry Wade Rogers, who is one of the wise and brilliant women of the ' day tells of. "Dutch Colonial ;. Farmhouises," emphasizing the debt which we owe the early -Dutch settlers for the per manent impress left by them on our i domestic architecture.

Stone & Co.; is a newspa per man in Chicago, with the experi ence which a long career of this kind may give. During several, years he turned night into day,' and this un natural Hfe gave him material for a series of tales called "Stories of lUNIONjfagffl CURRENT MAGAZINES the Night, ' V describing scenes from a world that is strange to most of us Seme of these were newspaper sto ries, but others were stories of the street The Secret Police Rule France. (Vance Thompson in the October "Success.") Skilled in all languages, able to en ter and society, the agents of the brigade des recherches (The Secret Police) have their fingers on the pulse of public life and know the men of high place as well if the' had gone through with lighted can dies. In a large measure is is tkrou-l them that France is a government. It is a mistake, though not an unnut- ural one, to assume that, because France is a republic, the peo ple have much to say in matters of government. The word of the peo ple is of little weight. The republic is parliamentary. It is intrenehed behind privileges and buttressed by an irremovable senate, which selects the presidents. In later years it has become largely a government of finan ciers. It has abrogated the right of trial by jury and denied to the peo pie the right of plebiscital suffrage. The French Republic is ruled from the top down. Th French pertect ot police is the agent of this oligarchy, as he was in the time of Louis XVI. The secret police is its obedient servant. Presi dents come and go; liberal ministers are succeeded by radical ministries, and socialists follow the radicals, but always the secret police remains, and always the oligarchy governs. The very man who is, chief of the state may be ranked among the enemies at least the adversaries of this oc cult ruling power. The Courtship of Queen Elizabeth. Martin Hume, whose historical work, "The Love Affairs of Mary Queen - of Scots," was so successful ast season, will bring out through McClure-Philips a similar book, en titled "The Courtship of Queen Eliza beth." Mr. Hume has charge of the Elizabethan Calendars in the British Public Record Office and has had ac cess to state papers hitherto neglect ed, which have given him an immense amount of new data. For the Amer ican edition he has added two new chapters dealing with the purely per sonal side of the virgin's queen's amours, including a newly discocv ered story of a son born to Elizabeth and one of her favorites.

There are different kinds of tonics, but the tonic most needed in this country, where catarrh is eo prevalent, is a tonifl that operates on the mucous membranes. Peruna is a tonic to the mucous mem branes of the w hole lnHly. It given tone to the capillary circulation which con stitutes these delicate membrane;, Peruna is a specific in its operation upon the mucous membrane. It is a tonic that strikes at the root of all ca tarrhal affection. It gives tone to the minute blood vessels and the terminal nerve fibres. Catarrh cannot exist km: where Peruna is used intelligently, Peruna seeks out catarrh in all the hid den parts of the body. A. M. Ikerd, an employe of the C. II. A Q. It. It., West Hurlington, la., writes: I had catarrh of the stomach and small intestines for a number of years. 1 went to a number of doctors and got no relief. Finally one, of my doctors sent me to Chicago and I met tho saina . fate. They said they could do nothing; for me. that I had cancer of tho stomach and there was no cure. I almost thought the same, for my breath was something awful. 1 could hard ly stand it, it "was sooifcuiv. I eould not eat anything without great misery, and 1 gradually grew worse. "Finally I got ono of your Icoks, and concluded I would try Peruna, and thanic Cod, I found a relief snd a mro for that dreadful disease. I took fi e hot ties of Peruna and two of Maualiu, and I now feel like a new man. There is nothing better than Peruua. and I keep a bottle in my house all the time'A. M. I kcrd. Catarrh : of the stomach is usually called dyspepsia. Catarrhal dyspepsia cannot Le cured by jK?psin powders or any, other, temporary relief. The only cure- for real dyspepsia la removal of the f catarrh from the mucous membrane of the stomach. This Peruna will do. This Peruna has done thousand and thousands of times. Congressman Botkin, of Kansas, was cured of catarrh' of the stomach of many years' standing. Hundreds of other cases hare been reported to us through unsolicited testimonials. Peruna is the only 'internal systemic remedy for ca tarrh yet devised. Erery one afflicted with catarrh in the slightest degree ought to take a course of Peruna.
