Sergeant Major Roswell Wlnans,

with the "Medal of Honor," tho
highest award of merit attainable by
the American military or naval man.
Wlnans operated a machine gun
against the enemy, only 150 yards
away. In the face of a heavy fire to
which he was fully exposed. When
a Jam put the gun temporarily out of
commission, he stood up anu cooly repaired

The "Medal of Honor" Is given to
very few persons, and only In cases of

European decorations, this American
medal Is worn pendant from the neck.

i If the activities of Col. XV. Wylle
Beall, the retired hanker of XVellsburg
and Democratic politician of promli
nence in his party organization in West
p Virginia, are not fair signs that Col.
p Beall is "rounding em up" preliminary
i to entering the race for th? United
, States Scnatorship nomination, then
i old-timers in the game of politics con.
fess that they no more can read a sign
i when they come upon one.
Beall was here before, during and
, after the inauguration, accompaulcd by
Mrs. Beall. They had a suite at the
i 1'owhatan, and they entertained hosi
pltably, and the most of their guests
were West X'irginlans who wield an Influence
ii. Democratic party affairs at
. home. And the most of the talk was
. politics, especially the senatorial matter
and the boom Col. Beall Is nurturing
with no evidences of disfavor upon
, his part. The Bealls came here from
Huntington and from Charleston,
. where with Democratic legislators and
. leaders lrora all parts of the state, Col.
Beall didn't dodge the question of future
probabilities of a political sort
i as they might altect the senatorial
; nomination and his relation thereunto.
From his friends to the Capital it
i has been learned that the attitude of
Col. Beall toward the senatorial issue
Is something like this: He isn't a candidate
in the strict formal sense at this
time, nor has he decided that he will
be. He has neither the intention nor
desire to appear to he forcing himself
on his party, but holds that the party
is supreme and party sentiment should
be left free to express Itself; there has
The Advice of Thli Fairmont Woman
la of Certain Value
Many a woman's back has many
acbcs and pains.
Orttlmea 'tis tbe kldneyB' fault.
That's why Doan's Kidney Pills :Vre
so effective.
Many Fairmont women know this.
Read what one has to say about It:
Mrs. Aldle Hawkins, of 810 Gaston
Ave., says: "I suffered with rheumatic
pains through by limbs and was
so weak 1 was almost helpless. My
back ached awfully and I couldn't rest
during the night and felt miserable
all day. I could hardly turn over In
bed. My kidneys dldn|t act as they
should. Doan's Kidney Pills gave me
quick relief and after I had used three
boxes, I was free from tbe rheumatic
pains and all signs of kidney trouble."

ate prison on Principe Hill. Hanaro, *
it of Cuba, who led the recent rerolt ai
t martial. The prison court contains i
i of the stuff up their nostrils. It Is the
, j rnreat thing nowadays for a Senator
to atnblo over to one of these boxes
and pinch a sample of their contents.
It calls for too great a courage. But
occasionally a Senator Is caught at It,
and looks as guilty as a sheep-killing
dog. After four years' vigil, we were,
rewarded the other day in seeing a
> member commit the act which was
! quite the proper and usual caper with j
members years ago. He did It stealth-1
i lly. but tho patient llawkshaw in the
J gallery caught him dead to rights. Wll- j
liam Alden Smith, of Michigan, It was.
1 He sniffed and he sniffed, first one
nostril and then the other. Breathless
ly we awaited to hear a sneez disturb
I the somnolent proceedings and crack
a few stained panes in the skylight.
Nothing of tho kind happened. Tho
! conclusion is that Williwm Alden Smith
i Is not In tho professional class. He's
, I a novice. It has been openly charged
. | in debate that "when tho President
; takes snuff, the Senators (Dem.)
across the aisle sneezo." But Smith, of
Michigan, isn't a Senator "across the
' aisle," which may account for him beI
ing a bad sneezer, or no Bneozer at all.
here authorities hare confined Gen.
tainst President Menocal, and his
i big flower garden and resembles a
developed a sentiment In the party to
him, not widespread as yet. but sul
flclent to warrant his looking Into ani
weighing; he realizes that the nonilna
tlon Is by no means equivalent to i
sinecure should party sentiment de
cree that he shonld recelVe It. bu
that the undertaking will call for han
work through many months and grea
personal sacrifices. His friends pa;
that he is in a position to make these
and that in their judgment the tall
going on In the party nbotif gettini
him to make the contest Is practlca
and logical.
Reminded that former Senator \V. E
Chilton has been telling his Washing
ton friends that ho would "come back
and that National Committeeman C
W. Watson might be a factor, the Beal
adherents smile dubiously as to th
Chilton suggestion, and express them
selves in most positive terms that Mi
\Vatson has no idea of being a candi
date. Then they talk of giving thel
party something "new" In the way o
a candidate and a leadership, and cor
elude by mentioning the bulky and bt
nlgn banker of Wellsburg as comlni
up to tho specifications.
The presence of former Attorno;
General A. A. Lilly in tho elty, causei
