Pride goetfy before a fall, saith
the Scripture;' and the president of
the United States has come very near
veryfying the scriptural adage.
He has always posed as the em
bodiment of consistency, propriety
and political virtue. He has so of
ten. figuratively speaking, held up
his hands in horror at what he con
sidered lapses from his self-set stand
ard that people began to think of him
as a perambulating protest, a peri
pat hetie exclamation point.
Whoever differed from him was
classed as undesirable and was as
signed to the Ananias club. His word
alone was unimpeachable; he alone
embodied truth. The people, howev

They do not always expect abso
lute consistency in any i>olitieian
but they do not approve of glaring
palpable inconsistency.
Dealing with the subject from an
entirely non-partisan standpoint, it
is asked: \\'ho believes in the sin
cerity of a man who, after writinf
to Mr. Harriman in the terms which
Mr Roosevelt did. and using him
and his money, and money he raised
as he did. alter he had secured his
re-election turned upon and denoun
ced him.
Mr. Roosevelt descended from his
high station to engage in a wrangli
with Governor Haskell, whom he de·
nounced as being an ally and tool ol
the Standard Oil company; yet h«
permitted one of his cabinet mem

same company to promote Mi
Roosevelt's election.
Not only did he do that, but whet
he heard the money had been re
ceived he made ostentatious displa;
of indignation, and ordered the mon
« y returned. It was never returned
however, bin he made the man wh<
collected it secretary of the treasur;
a position he now holds—and thi
money was used to get republieat
He denounced Judge Parker foi
staling the absolute truth abou
campaign contributions, but he liai
never had the manhood to apologiz·
inc. he has found that Judge Park
ei did state the truth.
There can be no denial or explan
ation of these things. They mark Mr
Roosevelt a; a pretender, and as
-umi r of virtue which he has not.
No man in public life has evei
lost asie and influence to such an
extent and in such a short time. It
is because Mr. Roosevelt has not
been frank and fair, candid and just.

Did you ever notice a little child
dancing up anil down for no other
I leason than that it was in perfect
I health and bubbling over with hap
piness and good feeling? If you are
at all observing you dowfttlees have,
and have probably thought what a
pleasure it would be to think all Its
life the same bapiiy feeling might
prevail and no sorrow or care come
to mar a single moment of Its hap
py existence.—Denison Herald. We
have noticed It. all of us. And a
pretty sight it is. too. Λ child is en
titled to happiness and freedom
from cumbering cares. The child
who hasn't such boons is being cheat
ed, either by its parents or by social
conditions over which it has no cou
i trol and of which it is an innocent
I victim. The same principle would
also, doubtless, govern the lives of
children of a larger growth, those
who are called men and women by
way of differentiation. But as niatur
er beings we are largely responsible
for our own woes and miseries,
[ whereas in childhood we do not have
them if they are not thrust upon us.

I reduced sea-sickness among the pas
sengers? That some explanation is
, due comes to one's understanding
j after a little examination of food
figures relating to 1907, picturesque
ly set forth by tlie chief steward of
j one of the big liners.
Seasick passengers, no matter how
'< ninny are carried, could not com
, fortably consume food costing at
I wholesale more than $4,000,000.
I This is seen at once, when it is not
|ed that the expense for coal on the
I same line was but $7,000, and their
consuming capacity is notoriously
'greater than that of passengers,
j As to champagne, which is said to
j be an excellent cure and for that
matter a preventive of seasickness,
passengers last year pulled the plugs
'out of only a few more than .">1,000
j bottles of champagne.
When it conies to claret tUe fig
ures jump so respectably that it is
seen that a man may raise a thirst
somewhere west of Suez. Of that
ruddy beverage the first class pas
j sen gem consumed 129,20!» bottles.

1 ■·' mere tipple by comparison, for
those in the steerage joyfully drank
not less than 121,297 «allons.
Home Brandy and llevr.
Of the various grades 0f brandy
the passengers consumed 20,641 bot
tles and 73,384 gallons. But these
are after all trifling nips, for of beer
more than half a million gallons
were drunk.
The recent, installation of the a la
caite system in restaurants of the
modern liners accounts for an ama
zing growth in the consumption of

ges, snipe, quails, pheasants, grouse,
canvas-back ducks. They demanded
hundreds of thousands of live lob
sters and crawfish, of fresh little
necks, blue-points and soft-shell
They consumed such a quantity of
gieon turtle soup that the chefs had
to use 13,407 pounds of fresh turtle
in its maki-ng.
Ci Hiing to the more substantial
articles of diet it is found that beef
there were used 8.31 1,927 pounds,
and of pork and veal and mutton
about three-quarters of a million
pounds of each. Potatoes to go with
these weighed in excess of 10,000
tons, a very fair cargo in itself.
The passengers consumed of eggs
6,">00.000 and af calves' liver and
bacon an appropriate quantity to sup
plement the eggs, and with their
morning toast 216,503 tins of mar
malade and other such sweets.
It is noted that besides what
smoking material passengers took on
board with them 2,327,225 cigars
and packages of cigarettes were had
from the smoking room steward.
While the consumption of beçr,
wine and spirituous liquor indicates
pretty generous living, figuring on
the basis of all the passengers car
ried for the year each passenger con
sumed after all only five-sixths of a
gallon of such cheering beverages
and the average consumption οι nun

I write these few lines out of grat
itude for what Mi-o-na has done for
me for dyspepsia and indigestion.
I have suffered for the past five
years, and have tried different doc
tors, but have had 110 relief until 1
bought a ."id cent box of Mi-o-na from
our drug store, ( R. W. Kuowlton's)
here a short time ago.
The first box did me so much good
that I immediately purchased anoth
er one. and 1 now feel better than 1
have at any time in the past five
years. Am able to eat anything and
everything, and get a good night's
sleep afterwards.
Was so bad al one time that all I
was able to eat for over a month was
a raw egg in a half a glass of milk,
two or three times a day.
I would earnestly advise anyone
suffering as I was from dyspepsia, to
give this remedy a fair trial. 1 re
main, gratefully yours, Harry L.

Mi-o-na is the only logical dys
pepsia remedy on the market today.
It is not a digester. It does not con

the stomach, and making the stomach
so strong and perfect that it is able

that Mi-o-na tablets have cured more

if carried, will change the situation
In two respects: First, it will substi
tute majority for minority rule, it
will permit one-third of the citizens
110 longer to thwart the progressive
movements of two-thirds of the citi
zens in the most important enter
prise and activity for good and ef
ficient citizenship. Why. Indeed,
should two-thirds be required in the
matter of education, which we all
acknowledge to be good and which
we are in no immediate danger of
getting too much of, while we per
mit hare majorities to rule in every
thing else? Must we be chary in al
lowing the people to do good, or in
giving them liberty to co-operate in
increasing the efficiency and length
of their schools for the betterment
of their childjen? The second change
that will be'effected by this new
amendment is that the people will
be given the liberty to vote a tax of
fifty cents on the one hundred dol

school purposes instead of twenty
"The amendment will not change
the city situation at all, but will give
the country certain privileges which
the city already possesses. Further
more. the amendment will not in
crease taxes, but will grant the priv
