A gentleman who lias returned from Aguacatc, stated to-night that ns many ns iiOO men, most o them armed, wero riding about the vicinity proclaiming Insurrectionary ideas. The principal event Jo-day was. the Sghtlnf- at San Luis. Tho reports ot the ominnndors of tho rural guard aro that (ho bands of Oucrrnvpozo, and others, Iggrcgatlnif about 4(t men, concentrated lo-day near Ban J.uls.

The in dications certainly point to the ilefe.it of the fusion State ticket and must ot the county tickets. Candidate t'lement is still fighting strenuously for election as governor but Is now apparently making no headway; on the other hand lie seems to bo losing the strength which was possibly his earlier In the canvass, His political ending may be as j.itlablu as it was, In 1W2, when ho attempted to gain the governorship through the Legisla ture. Mr. Clement was the opportune lead pr In the movement that year which hwept the liquor laws of fifty years' standing from the statutes. When this was accomplished Mr. Clement's ambi tion for the governorship did not ap peal to local option people and he was almost deserted In the Legislature. Clearly, Mr, Clement though nggres jlve, lacks the qualities that go to make i real leader. One great trouble and probably It Is tho principal secret of his failure this year to enlist tho republi cans to his cause i that he has utterly failed to male good Ills ehijrges of graft, mismanagement and extrava gance in public Institutions. Every claim of this kind has been met and refuted. lie has also failed to show that there Is any republican "machine," In this Slate. The men lie has named as belonging to the alleged machine are of the highest type ot citi zenship, Who In public life have dis rharged every duty Incumbent upon them with ability and honesty. I'ollll eal "machines" are not made from such material as everyone knows who has studied maehlno politics In the States where there Is political corruption. Mr. Clement has failed not only tn show graft and mismanagement but he hns Ignored the enquiry as to where he would reduce State ex-penses 2nO,oeiO or more, as ho talked about early In th campaign. He has failed to show where he would reduce expensees to any extent without crippling somo worthy public In stltutlon or transferring the cost now met by a corporation ta::, to the several towns where a direct tax would be nec essary, On the question of double taxation, and good roads, Mr. Clement has failed to offer any practical suggestions which will meet the requirements. Mr, Clement has failed to "make good nnd every republican will do the Stat a particularly valuable service when he votes his straight party ticket headed by the name of that able and experi enced legislator, Fletcher r. Proctor, nELics of the oldest finance. Relics havo Just been found, savs n Paris letter, of tho most ancient Franco of nil. In the high plateau of Auvergae, Among tho pxtlnct volcanoes around 1'uy do Dome, thero Is u groat excavation known to the peasants as the Poison Well. When tholr animals canio too near and flayed too long, they slept and died, as phyxlatml. A university professor covered that tho deaths wero caused by carbonic acid, which issued foith In tho form ot gas. More than half n million litres evnpornto dally, and this wasto Is now to ho utilized by a factory to liquefy it. In digging for the purpose, tho bones of nn ox, horse, and human skele. ton, also Onllo-Ilnman vases, were found; and then, lower down, a bison nnd a mam moth with tuskH threo yards long, As thesn regions dates back M,(ViO years, tho volcanoes must have been dead nt that time, when tho Poison Fountain wns al ready giving out its exhalations.

And Mr. Clement pledges his bqst ef forts to secure an amendment to change tho present system of repre sentation from towns to districts. This means that your town will havo no representative In the Legislature; that your town will become one of a chain of towns and that this chain ot towns will elect a representative. Will you stand for It? There's Just ono way to avoid this Clement plan and that is to vote tho straight republican ticket.

FLETCHERISM. The l.arKc Hciutninlti and I'll ileal lleiiillts of Thorough .Mastication. During a voluntary experiment In diet at a normal school in Connecticut thirty students (of whom twenty-seven were women lfetween the ages of twenty-fivo and forty) obtained substantial and va ried food at a cost of little more than 9 cents per day for pach student. Fletcher Ism ilocs not di mam! such extreme fru gality; it merely ilcil.nes that no one who masticates his food with thorough ness will cale for nmre than one-half of the amount of food customarily taken. At a missionary agriculture college lu Tennessee, wheie the students earn their tuition nnd hoard while pursuing their studies, a six months' test of Fletcher Ism (through mastication) icsulted in freedom from illness, Increased, energy, strength and endurance, and a saving of one-half of the drafts on tho coninilssary, A rough calculation, which, however In accurate, Is certainty Illuminating, has been made of the possible economy which Fletcherlstn could effect for the entire I'nitid States, A saving of one half n pound a day in tho food of each individual would mean a reduction of about IT.iM) tons of food dally In our pop ulations of nventy millions. At tho lato of the cost of flour, thu saving to the nation would he more than $l,0ao,OK) a day, or $Sfi,,nc0.f-i0 a year. Fli-tcheiism, however, Is not an aglla Uon for money tcononiy pure and simple. its central aim Is to liing about a higher efllclency In the Individual, the home, anil the State, ami this aim Is Indicated only by the broader meaning of "econ omy. fltc cost to tile pocket," said Mr. Fletcher, "that Is saved by economic niitiltlon is of little matter as compared with the saving of the wasto ot energy and the danger of disease. Whero mental or even physical Improvement lu ellb cleacy to bo purchased at high prices and could lack of efllcloncy ho had for nothing, the high-priced article would bo well worth its cost, no matttcr what It might be, for the reason that total lack of elllcleney Is equivalent to death, and any proportionate lack Is tho next tiling to death." Thorough chewing Is a euro for all the Ills which come crowding upon the hasty nnd ruleless cater. The body needs a ceiinlu nmount of food to keep up Its power; a small pot Hon In excess of this requirement does no service to the body, but demands a waste of energy to get ild of It, mill every additional portion of fond does more than proportionate harm. One cannot rid himself of a glut or excess without an enormous expense of brain and body energy. t is this continual taxing of our physical and mental power which Is responsible for most of the dis ease, InelilclencN, nd pauperism with which tho win Id Is burdened, A faithful adherence to tho teachings of Fletcher Imii will bring t n complete freedom from Indigestion and lis brood of dls cases, a largo increase In proilurllvo ca pacity, ami a far keener enjoyment of eating than Is possible under customary ways of bolting food. All this means household economy In every sense of tho word saving of money, of time, and of work Invohcd by table service, together with large Incomo from thei family w.igo carncrs.-Qood HoiibeUcejiliu;.
