UPPER COUNTRY IS FOR CHASE S. OSBORN. Richard Flannagan, of Norway, who is accepted in this section of the state, as one of the "longhorns" of, the upper peninsula, was in Lansing , yesterday, says the Lansing Republi can, and he took time to reiterate the ; word that the upper country will stand j by Chase Osborn, to announce that business at the mines is booming and that the people of his part of the state are not afraid of the tonnage tax ' nrnnda providing the people of this ,..;.': will inv-stieate th- matter be- ' I in a conclusion. J Flannagan occupies a somewhat unique position in the minds of many friends and acquaintances in the low er portion of the state. Anything he says about the section of the state wherein he calls home Is generally accepted as law and gospel. If you should ask any one of hundreds of legislators, statchouse men and poli ticians whose word went with them about IT. P. matters, nine chances out of ten they would speak for Flan nagan. It has all come easy to him too. Uo never did bring a brass band down here with him: he never did ask to be quoted; he never did assume the Job of carrying the desti nies of the upper peninsula, but his word of nsservatlon goes, and dozens of men who will swear at what they call the adroit selfishness of the upper country, never think of classing in Flannagan as one of the astute fram ers of the scheme. Some men down SO DECEPTIVE Many Calumet People Fail to Realizt the Seriousness. Rackache Is bo deceptive. It comes and goes keeps you guess ing. Learn the cause then curt It. Nine times out of ten it comes from the kidneys. That's why Doan's Kidney Pills cure It. Cure every kidney ill from backache to diabetes. We present the following case as proof. II. C. Krause, 149 Dodge St., Hough ton, Mich., Bays: "About four months ago I began to suffer from pain in the small of my back and the kidney se cretions also became irregular in pas sage, showing that my kidneys need ed attention. I had often heard of Doan's Kidney Pills and deciding to try them, I procured a box. The bark ache was soon removed and I have since felt better In every way. Other members of my family have taken Doan's Kidney Pills with the same good results and I therefore, do not hesitate to publicly endorse this rem edy." For -''" h- ill cc Fost -r-M !!

Of course his name leads one to believe that he Is a volatile, tullv soul effervescent und fond of his quips and flings, but he Is hardly that, although he does like a bit of a joke now and then. "It Is a question what will be the line of activity of the friends of the tnnnuire tax iiroposltlon. said he. "If there is a fair consideration of the subject and everyone hears the full story, tin re Is no question as to what will happen, one man's argument will not tell the full story and all the up per country people want Is a thorough consideration of the subject by the voters before they definitely settle their attitude regurding it." A CONGRESSIONAL FORECAST. Congress convenes today. The. J'res l.lent s message, which will ba read tomorrow, instead of being left a sub ject of speculation, has been outlined in advance, so that private informa tion concerning it will not avail to manipulate the stock market. This is a good thing, and in many of its rec- commendatlomO as well' as In the tactful manner in which they are pre sented. the message is likely to be re ceived as a model of wluit such docu meiits should be. On the question of whether' or not there should be a congressional inves tigation of the trust Issue, especially of the gigantic speculations of the su gar trust, it Is not likely that the president will have anything to say except that the government is prose cuting the trusts. Indeed it is and It Is securing results by Itst policy that are causing the trusts more anxi ety than would knowledge on their part that a government investigation is imminent. Financial legislation of importance is not to be expected at the approach ing session of Congress. Certainly there will be nothing so innovatory as the authorization of a great central bank. The general understanding is now that the subject will not come up at this session that the monetary' commission Is not ready to report con clusions, and has not agreed upon re- commending a central note-issuing In stitution, though the attitude of the chairman of the commission on that subject is now well known. The put ting of financial legislation over to a later date will leave a clearer field for other matters. Important recommendations will be made by the heads of the army and navy departments. Secretary Meyer Is for a simplification of the cumbrous machinery of the navy department that should commend itself to everyone do- siring the efficiency of that arm of the military power of the nation. Red tape entanglements, which prevent prompt transaction of business, are bad enough in time of peace but may be disastrous in time of war. Secretary Meyer has given thought to the subject and it is to be hoped that his recom mendations will be made the basis of legislation. ... . The Nicnraguan complication is likely at the outset of the session to afford a subject for impassioned de bate. War is alwuys an exciting theme. Hut Nicaragua Is small pota toes, and a more Important though less exciting subject pertaining to the countries foreign relations, is the pro vision by the United States of build ings to house its embassies abroad.

"THIS IS MY 69TH BIRTHDAY." Rrlg.-Oen. Richard Henry Pratt, U. S. A., retired, the originator and foun der of the famous Carlisle school for Indians, was born in Rushfprd, X. Y., December 6, 1840, and served in a regi ment of Indiana volunteers during the civil wur. He came out of the war a captain, and was appointed to the reg ular establishment, in which he rose from grade to grade until his retire ment five years ago. His early ser vice in the regulars was hunting the Indians in the southwest, and by this occupation he came to take a deep In terest in the Indian problem. When a lot of Indian prisoners were ordered to be taken from Fort Sill to the old fort at St. Augustine. Fla., Col. Pratt was detailed as commander of their guard and then ordered to command the old fort to which they were taken. This experience Increased his Interest In the red man and soon afterward he sug gested to the government the organiz ation of nn Industrial school for In dians. When the school was opened at Carlisle, Pa., In 1879 he was made Its superintendent and remained In that position until his retirement from the army thirty-five years later. An Artless Distinction. Lewis, aged three, asked his moth er what he wa$ made of. The mother replied, "Sugar, because you are so weet."

Cape Colony Has Forty-one of Them in Isolated Communities. . A novel system of special education for the children of Cape Colony is In operation, and the success of the schools Is marked. Whenever railway employes in Iso lated places can guarantee an average attendance of ten children or more not otherwise provided for by the railway schools the railway department and the educational department, acting conjointly and each furnishing half the expense, provide suitable premises and a certificate teucher at a salary of $3W) U $4S7 a year and quarters. Children of railway employes are carried to and from thene schools free of charge and are charged slightly lower fees than Is tho regular govern ment public schools; they must also provide their own books and stationery. No objection Is raised to the attend ance of the children of farmers who also may be riving beyond the con venience of any government public school.
