It is a mistake to consider Catarrh merely
a local trouble. It is unquestionably a
disease of the blood, and therefore the right
way to cure Catarrh is to remove from the
blood the impurities which cause and feed
it. This is to be done by taking Hood'

from the many so-called catarrh cures. Of

Tho demand for most country pro
duce is good, especially eggs and
dried fruit. Eggs are rather scarce,
as is usual at this season, with an up
ward tendency. When the young
hens begin to lay they are usually
more plentiful and prices decline.
There is a good demand for nice
bright apples at outside quotations.
Poultry is dull, especially chickens
and hens. Some demand for fat
turkeys for thanksgiving. The value
of white beans not known, the crop
seems to be larger than usual and
prices hardly established yet.

, Washington, D. C. Nov. 2,
Preposterous as it may sound it is
nevertheless true that some of the
most unscrupulous republicans are.
actually seriously entertaining the
idea of stealing the seat in the Senate
to which Hon. Calvin S. lirice was
elected by the Legislature of Ohio.
As yet this movement is confined to
sounding republican Senators to its
certain if they will vote to reject
Senator Hrice on the ground that he
is not a citizen of Oltio. Tho.-e en
gaged in this despicable work sup
pose that it is a secret, and if upon n
count of noses, they find that they
cannot control enough votes to suc
ceed in the barefaced theft, it will
not bo openly attempted. Fortu
nately the republican majority in
tho Senate is a small one, and some
of the republican Senators are . honor
able enough and independent enough
to do what they believe to lie right,
even to the extent of defying a re
publican caucus. It is these men
that will prevent this political crime,
if it is prevented. It is not known
what Mr. Harrison thinks of tins
thing, but it is claimed that Secreta
ry Foster is in favor of it, and that
he is aiding in sounding the Senators
as they arrive here. It is diflicult
to believe that the republicans in the
Senate, much as they would like to
add one more vote to their rapidly
waning majority, will resort to 'such
method of doing it. Still, one
must have a very short memory who
will dare to predict to a certanity
that it will not be done. But the
prediction may be safely made that
if it is done the honest people of this
country will see . that it is followed
by the speedy puuishment of those
who are guilty. Partisanship may
under certain circumstances be ex
cused, but dishonesty never. If Sen
ator Brice has not a clear title to his
seat no member of the Senate has.
Senator Faulkner, who is a conser
vative and level-headed man, ' has
this to say, on the Presidential out
look : "I think that if the delega
tion from his own State to the nation
al convention want him nominated,
Mr. Cleveland will be the nominee.
But if factional differences in New
York shall make it evident that no
citizen of that State can secure unan
imous support, the chances are that
the nominee will be sought else
where, as it is absolutely necessary
that the man nominated shall be
able to carry New York state."
Representative Mills', headquarters
for the Speakership campaign are al
ready open, although the number of
Congressmen in town is as yet
small, but increasing with the arri
val of every train. The headquar
ters of Messrs Crisp, McMillan and
Springer will be opened this week.
As it is just four weeks today to the
opening of Congress the candidates
for Speaker will have to hustle for
all they are worth from now on.
The sudden death of the son of Rep
resentative Crisp cast a momentary
gloom over that gentleman's pros
peels, but the activity of his friends
will prevent his temporary absence
from the scene of action resulting in
any harm to him.
Among the republicans who are in
hot chase after some of the fat officia
plums soon to be distributed by Mr.
Harrison, is ex-Speaker Keifer of

Besides myself and nearly 400 other
i.M'ngers the Columbia earned a m'il-
mn dollars worth of gold bullion to
Hamburg and about half a million in
silver to London. The bricks of 6ilver
were piled up besido my trunks on tho
deck of the little U nder which took U3
up to Southampton pier, and I seriously
contemplated the advisability of drop
ping ono into my handbag. Just as I
was "lifting" the end of one of them a
person about eight feet high materialized
out of tho gloom aud remarked :
Hi beg pardon, sir, but hi m not hal
owed to let any person meddle with the
bullion." The tone was firm but apolo
getic, and the accent was impossible to
reproduce in type. Then I realized that
I was in England. The man was a gov
ernment employee and civil. If it had
been in America I would have been or
dered off in very different terma, yet the
Englishman's civility was as effective as
our brusquerie ; besides, the bricks wero
too heavy to carry away.
That is one feature of English life that
particularly admire. The policemen,
the railway officials, the custom house
inspector ill seem to realize that they
are the servants of the public, and they
do not regard the casual wayfarer as if
his continued existence was annoying to
them. At home we address these func
tionaries with a tacit apology for living,
and they ..rawer us as suits their impe
rial fancy. Over here, strange as it may
seem, the railway guards really appear to
be pleased to impart information, the
"bobbies" give directions with true mili
tary precision, and waiters thank you for
a tip. Thankee, sir, is an expression
heard on every side. I was standing in
the Charing Crossing Station tho other
night, aud an importunate flower vender
annoyed an irascible old gentleman who
was standing near me.
"Go to the devill" snapped the old fel
"Yessir, thankee, sir," responded the
flower man, and there wasn't a trace of
sarcasm in his tone, either. Chicago
