The weather has lately been affecting the stock markets. The long, continued drouth in the East damaged the hay and vegetable crops, while in the West and South, the floods and cyclones dam aged the wheat, corn and cotton crops, all of which are listed in the stock ex changes, and all of which reached a low level last week. In the iron and steel trade the do mestic output now snpplies the demand, and importation has stopped, though railway construction keeps up the price of steel rails. The railway earnings continue to be phenomenal, the movement of merchan dise is heavy, money is easy, and the Nation is prosperous. Fifty years ago the President of the United States or a candidate for the Presidency "swung around the circle" east of the Mississippi; now the circle skirts the Pacific coast, and in fifty years more it will probably include the North pole and the Panama canal. "The World do move. 4 ' President Roosevelt landed in Washington last Friday evening after an excursion, or ' 'swing around "the circle" during which he travelled fourteen thousand miles by mil and several hundred more by'coach and horse— a trip that is an education in itself, and during which he has probably acquired information that will be of use to the Nation, for in all pro bability he will succeed himself as President. The investigation into the postoffice scandals are being vigorously pursued. One of the bureaucrats has already been indicted and two others are under arrest. Mr. Machen is accused of pay ing several prices for materials, and re ceiving a "rake-off" of forty per-cent. The frauds discovered have been in the Rural Free Delivery department, which is no good reason for condemning the system, but if the assertion that it is now costing the Nation twenty-cents to deliver a two-cent letter by the R. F. D. is true, that is a cogent impeach ment. The Nation, in the interest of better communication, will not balk at paying all or a little more than the postage for rural deliver}-. Bat when it comes to a cost of 10 times the Dostage even an allowance for the extravagance of the system does not give such a i"oute a reasonable excuse for existence. Forty millions of dollars will have been expended on the grounds and buildings of the St. Louis exposition before the gates are opened, next year. That is a very large sum—two and a half times as much as we paid Napoleon for the French title to the whole stretch of country, from Louisiana to Oregon— but the results will be to the glory and profit of the whole nation. We see it stated in a Philadelphia pa per, that visitors to the Centennial, Chi cago and Buffalo Fairs from foreign countries were as much impressed with the evidences of the mental and moral development of this nation as they were with the mechanical development, though the latter evoked their highest praise, and that an effort will be made to exhibit the civic as well as the manu factured results of this state at St. Louis. That is a good idea. We had it at Buffalo, to some extent, in a little two cent building, around the corner, which nobody could find and were ashamed of when they did find it, though it cost the state $30,000: and for St. Louis we sug gest an enlarged reproduction of Inde pendence hall, containing a number of i large glass cases, in one of which will be' wax figures of some of our state officials, holding out to the view of an astonished World, a gilt-edged copy of the Salus- Grady libel law. This case should be marked "Exhibit: Z," for it would be the most discredit able on the grounds. THE objection to the libel law recent ly passed by the Pennsylvania Legisla ture is not so much on account of the unreasonableness of its provisions as the unwholesomness of the principle involved. In dealing with the great problems of human liberty we must dismiss our personal feelings and prej udices and look at matters from the bioad standpoint of the general good. Progress in government is always in the direction of greater freedom, and the liberty of the press, being vital to universal suffrage, should be regarded as one of the most sacred of our insti tutions. Any restrictions of the rights of free speech must therefore be regard ed as a step backward towards oppress ion.—Spirit. "Herrick, Harding and Harmony" will be the battle cry in Ohio, this year. At the Republican Convention in Col umbus, lasFThursday, M. T. Herrick of Cuyahoga was nominated for Governor, and W. G. Harding of Marion for Lieu tenant Governor. Selecting Teachers. The first qualification of a male teach •r is that he be a gentleman, and the tir. t qualification for a female teacher is : hat she be a lady—all the other qual ifications follow. Our friend Smith of the Punxsutawney Spirit who ranks the worthy school-teacher with the poets H i t philosophers says: "It is our conviction that nine-tenths •if ■he boys an d girls, who might have developed a lofty intellectuality, are railed by coarse-grained, crude and in <-„i .able persons who are given places as tochers in our public schools About the minor concerns of life we Hr-' more rational. If we hire a man to tend a horse we inquire what he knows about horses—can lie take care of them properly ? Does he know his business ? But we send a child to the public schools with scarcely a thought as to whether the person who assumes the role of teacher is even possessed of good common sense, much less whether he possesses that exaltation of soul that en «l>!ds him to fashion a delicate brain in to .i thing of beauty. When a real teacher is found he should not be permitted to quit the wyrk because better inducements are offered in other spheres of action. He should be compensated according to his worth. It is more important that chil dren should grow np into glorious man hood and womanhood than that the stock of manufacturing and commercial establishments should pay twenty per cent Two Tliforit- of Legislation. | Judge Carpenter of Colorado had in a recent decision tlatly negatived the con tention that a court having the validity of a legislative act before it may not in qnire whether it was passed in accord ance with constitutional requirements Otherwise he declares oppressive laws may be impo -ed upon our people with out any remedy. The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania in case of Kilgore vs. McGee held the opposite, though not without misgiving, as the record shows. Between the two opposing theories the people will have no difficult} - in seeing that the Colorado decision establishes a check on legisla tive fraud and irregularity. The Penn sylvania judicial theory refuses any remedy. The Constitution of Pennsyl vania, like all American constitutions, deemed it vitally necessary that all leg islative proceedings shall be conducted under certain limitations, for the as surance of fairness, deliberation and common honesty. But the Pennsylvania ruling lays down the principle that these constitutional requirements can be nul lified with impunity if a false certificate is obtainable that they have been re spected. It has not before this year been as serted that the Governor acting as a part of the law-making power may net withhold his approval of a bill which he know* to have been unconstitution ally passed. The joint effect of the ju dicial and Gubernatorial holdings is to give notice to unscrupulous leeislators that if they can get a bill through the two houses without a majority vote, or without the readings required by the Constitution, their fraud will be suc cessful. By this view the presiding offi cers and clerks of the Legislature are the real lawmakers. This is one of the gravest questions raised in our State politics. It affects the integrity of representative legisla tion. Nor is it any merely abstract is sue. A Harrisburg paper has declared itself ready to prove that bills were passed in the last session by the device of one member answering for, and vot ing in, the names of members who were absent, and no one has taken up the challenge. A veteran legislator in a hearing before the Governor referred to the practice x»f "clerking" bills through the Legislature. The testimony in a noted political case involving legislative practices in 1901 lesve3 no doubt as to the possibility of placing enactments on the statute book by fraud. Of course, the people have one rem edy left. The dety is the more impera tively laid on them to elect members of the Legislature who will neither engage in such frauds themselves nor permit others to carry them out. But the rec ognition of that duty does not lessen the peculiarity of the doctrine that if dishonest men secure fraudulent enact ment of laws the form of certification is more important than the fact of the fraud.—Pittsburg Dispatch. News Notes. Four New Kensington boys were drowned in the river, Tuesday. The yillage of Black Walnut,along the Misssouri River, was surrounded by water, last Saturday. Two hundred people were prisoners until a steamer arrived from St. Louis. The woods of Maine, Northern New York and New Jersey were burning, last week, and all the coast cities, in cluding Boston, New YorK and Phila delphia, were enveloped in smoke. Part of St. Louis was under water this week; the water in the channel of the Mississippi was about forty feet deep; the Union station in East St. Louis was temporarily abandoned, no trains crossed the bridges, twenty lives were lost asd the property loss was es timated in the millions; 23,000 people were homeless and 200,000 acres of farm land was covered. A cold-blooded member of the Mich igan Legislature has introduced a bill into the State Assembly, which provides for the killing of all feeble-minded and deformed children who are regarded as hopeless cases. The name of this heart less representative of the people is Rod gers and he hails from Muskegon. This gentleman excuses his measure upon utiltarian grounds and backs it up with the plea that humanitarian interests de mand the removal of children whose minds are such as to render them a bur den to society and incapable of liappi ness for themselves. The bill is based upon the report from the superintend ent of the State asylum tcv the effect that many of the inmates do not pos sess, nor ever will have, mind enough to know that they are alive. Birthday Surprise. On June 2nd. which was the 55th birthday of S. N. Harvey, a highly re respected citizen and farmer of Clinton twp. Butler Co. who had gone out as usual to perform his days work, for he is a man noted for his industriousness. when to his surprise the friends and neighbors came driving in and began to prepare tables in the barn, which was a a very suitable one for the occasion, and when the tables were ready the ladies filled them with the most sump tuous food, and two hours later when almost two hundred felt as though each and every one had done justice for once. After which the Presbyterian Minister, O. J. Hutchison, made somo very pleasing remarks. The meeting was then called and Mr. John C, Norris was appointed president and L. S. Lardin. sec. An address was made followed by instrumental music also vocal music by the young ladies and Mr. Elridge Harvey and Mr. W. C. Gibson, aud the day passed quickly by and each and every one thanked Mr Harvey aud his wife for their kindness and the good time, hoping they both may live to enjoy many more such oc j casions. A Surprise Party. A pleasant surprise party was given at the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Grah am. Venango township, Saturday, June 6, in honor of Mrs. Graham. About 10 a. IU. the friends and neighbors began to gather and by noon about 250 were present. Those from a distance were: Mr. and Mrs. Addison Addletnan and family of Buffalo, N. Y., and Mrs. Mosley and daughter of Griflith, O. The Eau Claire band was present and furnished excellent music for the occas ion. Dinner was served and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves, an J had plenty to eat and lots left. Rev. Smallenberger, of Eau Cl«ire, was called on to make an address: he did so and made a very good one for the occasion. The only mishap that hap pened throughout the day was that a gentleman lost his hat. It is thought he hid it in an apple tree near the table, so he would have an excuse to go back to see if there was any chicken left as he is a lover thereof. About 4 o'clock, after wishing Mr. and Mrs. Graham a long and happy life the people returned to their homes feeling that the day was well spent in joy and happiness. (BY A SMALL EATER.)

The Inn IIIIIHIIUMI ami Fiftieth | Auiiiversarj' ol' New York City, j Although it might have been possible | to find a more sentimental event than ; the incorporation of the city on which to base the recent 250 th anniversary of New York, such, for instance, ijs the landing of the first settlers, or the pur chase of Manhattan Inland by the Dotch for sixty guilders, it cannot be denied thai the incori»ration marks the actual birth of the city and is the logical land mark from which to measure its life and progress anion!; the great cities of the world. There is, of course, an un avoidable sameness in all such celebra tions, but ir. this particular case there were circumstances which gave to the celebration a special interest,and served to draw the attention of the civilized world. In all the world's history there is no parallel to the extraordinary rap idity of the growth of New York city in wealth, extent and population. In 1653 we find a little settlement of 1,500 souls, housed in a few modest home 3 in a clearing at the southerly end of forest covered and rocky Manhattan Island. Two hundred and "fifty years later, New Amsterdam is represented by splendid New York, with a population of upon four millions of souls. The forests of Manhattan have been swept away, the swamps filled in. the rocky hills laid low, and the island covered from end to end and from river to river with rnojes tic buildings devoted to commerce and industry, with the magnificent homes of its successful merchants and finan ciers, and the lofty apartment and tene ment homes of its busy toilers, while its streets and avenues are seamed and un dermined with a veritable network of railways for the quick transit of its in habitants. It would be a distinction for any city to have grown in two and a half cen turies from a mere village to be the second greatest metropolis of the world But New York city has been favored by holding a commanding geographical position which in itself has undoubted ly given it a prestige unique among the cities of the world. Most fitly has it been named the gateway of the western hemisphere, for into its harbor and out ward through its radiating network of railways, has poured and been dis tributed that marvelous stream of cos mopolitan humanity which has con tributed so largely to our growth in population, and to the development of that national versatility to yrhleh our commercial success is largely due. New- York city has increased by a steady in flux from every quarter of the compass: from the East by the immigration of foreign races, a large percentage of which has made New York its home, while from the West, North, and South it has grown by the steady inflow of the more energetic amftng its own native population, whose ambition has drawn them to a city that holds out promises of wealth and fame, promises, by the way, that it frequently redeems with a most lavish hand. Although the municipal history of New York city has been extremely tur bulent and much of it discreditable, al lowance must be made for the fact that the city is so largely cosmopolitan, and that it has ever been the favorite hunt ing ground of the political adventurer. When we remember how many thous ands of immigrants settle each year within its boundaries, and that these people, many of whom cannot even speak the language of the country, are early invested with the privileges of the franchise, the marvel is 'not that the city should have hud so much, but rather that it should have had so little, that is disastrous and humiliating writ ten in its records. Moreover, there is mtych promise for the future in the fact that whenever the best elements among the citizens of New York city have set themselves to reform municipal abuses, they have been easily able to obtain full control and have proved, as at present they are proving, that the city can con duct its affairs righteously and justly and in the best interests of the individ ual citizen It is pardonable at a time like the present to make a forecast of the future; and it may safely be said that if the city continues to grow at the present aston ishing rate, ii will hold, sooner than many of us expect, the proud position of being the leading metropolis of the world, pre-eminent not merely for its numbers, extent and wealth, but also, let us hope, for the purity of its govern ment and the high ideals and political integrity of its citizens.—Scientific American More Disasters in the Southland. Fifty lives and millions of dollars in property were lost in the Pacelot Valley in South Carolina, last Saturday, as the result of a cloudburst in the mountains. The Pacolet river rose 30 feet in an hour. From a small stream it became a raging, roaring torrent, carrying everything before it. It swept through the towns of Clifton and Pacolet. leav ing them a mass of ruins. Five great cotton mills were swept away Thou sands are homeless and their meaus of livelihood is destaoyed. With one exception the entire los of life was at Clifton. There the flood descended so that there was not time for all to escape. At Pacolet the people took warning in time. It was 5 o'clock that morning when the people of Clifton were awakened by the bells calling them to work. They had just aroused when it was seen that the river was rising. An alarm was given, but the people did not compre hend their danger until it was too late for many to escape. The mills were destroyed, as was the great railroad bridge The preachers of Clifton unite in putting the loss of life at 50. Several entire families were swept away. There were many heroic rescues One little boy was carried off on a log. He called for aid, but no help could reach him and he perished in sight of all. In that town every man woman and child is in enforced idle ness. Their means of earning a living is destroyed. Probably $200,000 is the money loss in that village. Mrs. Diiss is It. John S. Duss has resigned the trus teeship of the Economy Society and his wife has been elected in his stead. Duss is booking orders that will take him and his baud all over the country next season: and as his wife is n business woman she will look after the society's properties and rentals. The only other male member of the society yet living is the old basket maker Franz Geltman —very old and very docile. Mrs. Duss as president-trustee will re main in her home in Economy—the House of the Fathers or the great house, as it is familiarly called. Under the terms of the sale to the union company the society retains three squares of the town pioper, that portion from the main road overlooking the river to the street on which the Great house fronts, and taking in the Music hall aud the uext block. The graveyard is also re tained and the use of the church for a term ot years is allowed This reserves for the society the choicest part of the plateau of Economy nnd assures its members a residence section exculsively their own A great change has come over Econ omy within the past two years. It is peopled with strange faces. All the houses, the new ones and the remodeled dwellings that were made from tlie workshops of the old-timers, are tenant ed, and builders are rapidly erecting hundreds of new dwellings to house the industrial army that is being brought there to man the big plants and mills going up in the vicinity of the once quiet, rural community.

J Subscribe for the CITIZEN A MISERABLE HAN. Two Years and Six Months Without Sleep. Sleep seems to be in many caaet a matter of habit, just as eating and drinking are habits. The Arab whose desert life leads to abstemiousness, de clines the offer of a draught of water, saying, "No thank you, I drank yester day." lie drinks only when thirsty, and like his own camels, he can go long and far without water. It's much the same with sleep. When Gabet and Hue, the French missiona ries, were exploring Tartary they en gaged in the translation of the Scrip- tures, working without intermission day and night. When one felt the need of sleep he lay on a couch, holding in his hand a ball, beneath which, on the floor, was a brazen bowl. When his muscles relaxed sufficiently to release the ball, it fell into the bowl, and the noise wakened the sleeper who resumed his work. But it is one thing to give up sleep and another thing altogether to be unable to sleep. Those who suffer from asthma, bronchitis and other dis eases of the organs of respiration are only too familiar with this enforced wakefulness. They would give almost anything for a night's unbroken rest. THE SECRET OF SLEEP for them lies in the cure of the diseases which banish slumber. That this cure is possible is abundantly proven by those who have used Doctor Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery for the cure of bronchitis, obstinate and deep-seated coughs, lung "trouble" and otner dis eases of the organs of respiration. "I can this day say that Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is the best and only remedy I have ever found for what the doctors call asthma," writes Mr. F. G. Rodemeyer, of 45 Hayden Street, Fort Wayne, Ind. "I have' suf fered from hay - fever (and I get the asthma with it), every year in August unl September for the last fifteen vears, and could not sleep one night during that time, until this year, I have not lost one night's sleep, thanks to Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery; and best of all I did not get the asthma with the hay-fever, and I only used two bottles of the 'Golden Medical Discovery.' " The cures accomplished by the use of "Golden Medical Discovery" are as numerous as they are wonderful. The great triumphs of this medicine have been won in the cure of chronic dis eases of many years standing. When every other medicine had failed to do more than give tempory relief, Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery has mads a perfect and permanent cure. Even when the disease was far advanced; ■when there were hemorrhages, night sweats, emaciation and great weakness, "Golden Medical Discovery" has cured the disease and restored the strength WHAT FEW MEN KNOW, is that catarrh in its commonest or simplest form is a menace not merely to health but to life. Catarrh of the lungs i 9 but a step removed from con sumption. Catarrhal affections should therefore never be neglected. They are as dangerous as they are offensive. "For twelve years I was a sufferer from catarrh and was treated by one of the best physicians in the State of North Carolina, who said the trouble had reached my lungs," writes Mr. J. M. Patton, of Clotno, Transylvania Co., N. C. "I grew worse every day until I tried Dr. Pierce's medicines. Will say, Sc. Pierce's Golden Medical Dift- eovery with one bottle of Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy cured me, and to-day I am well and* hearty, and I will say further that my former physician, Dr. W. M. Lyday, recommends Dr. Pierce's medicine to me and to others. I an sure your medicines will cure any case of catarrh that exists. I recommend them to all." By purifying the blood and increas ing the activity of the blood-making glands "Golden Medical Discovery" strengthens every organ of the body. Accepting the fact that the blood if the life, it follows that the healthfulness of the physical life will depend upon the healthmlness of the blood, ana that a deficient supply of blood must result in a deficiency of physical strength. "Golden Medical Discovery" gives health and strength by increasing the quantity and improving the quality of the blood. The evidence of this lies in the marked gain in weight experienced by those who have become emaciated by wasting disease, and who have been cured by the use of "Golden Medical Discovery." It is not a gain of flabby fat, but a gain of sound flesh and firm muscle, and with this gain of flesh and muscle comes a gain of strength, which seeks a new outlet for itself in active exercise. The frequent testimony, "It has made a new man of me," thoroughly expresses the real rejuvenation whicn comes to those cured by the use of "Golden Medical Discovery." Accept no substitute for "Golden Medical Discoveiy." No so-called "just as good" medicine can compare with the "Discovery" when its record of cures is considered. a I CENTS TO TJNCIB SAIC That is the condition under which you can obtain a copy of the " People's Common Sense Medical Adviser," fret.
