W. -tv. THOMAS, Official In Charge. FRENCH DRAWS DEADLY PARALLEL. An open letter rrom Representa tive Burton L. French to Hon. Fred T. Dubois Is being sent broadcast over the state. It is In main a re ply to statements publishe.1 in the Scimitar to the effect that Con gressman French was discredited in his attempt to square the republi can party with ex* -flug facts In Idaho on the development of the Mormon question and its relation to state politics, hr this connection he quoted at length from the record of the Investigation in the Smoot case from the testimony of Congressman French. In rep'y. to (his Mr. French draws the deadly parallel on ex-Sen ator Dubois, referring to his speech In the senate on the Mormon ques tion in 1903, In which he says; "I live among those people; and so far as I know, In Idaho there has not been a polygamous marriage celebrated since that manifesto wa« issued, and 1 have yet to find a man in Idaho or anywhere else who will aay that a polygamous marriage has been celebrated anywhere since the issuance of that manifesto. "Mr. (Senator-) Hale. Then U must follow from that, as the years go by and as the older people dis appear, polygamy as a practice will be practically removed. ' "Mr. Dubois. There 1 b no ques tion about It; and I will say to the senator, owing to the active part which we took in that fierce contest In Idaho, I with others who had Xiade the fight thought we were jus tified in making this promise to the Mormon people. We had no author ity of law, but we took It upon our aelves to assure them that those older men who were living In the polygamous relation, who had grow ing families which they had reared and were rearing before the mani festo was Issued and at a time when they thought they had a right under the constitution to enter the polygamous relation that those older men and women and their children should not be disturbed; that the polygamous man would be allowed tr support h's numerous wives and The Light That's Bright Under the glittering light of the electric lamp every thing la seen at Its best. A poorly-furnished house becomes bright and cheerful in appearance with the Introduction of electric light The dark and dingy store once avoided by shoppers, quickly changes its character and becomes a busy mart of trade under the radiant brilliance of Electric Illumina tion. Call at Electric Light Office their children. The polygamous re lations, of course, should not con tinue, hut we would not compel a man to turn Tits families adrift. Wo promised that the older ones, who had contracted those relations be fore the manifesto wa3 issued, would not be persecuted by the Gen tiles; that time would be given for them to pass away, but that the law 1 would be stringently enforced against any polygamous marriage which might be contracted In the future." Here is something for young Americans to read and ponder over. In one of his speeches, Governor Hughes of New York said: "You don't make Washington's by making them commanders-in-chief. You don't make Lincolns by electing them president. You don't make Grants by putting them In charge oi the army. They were made in their boyhood and young manhood. They were simp'y discovered at the time when they were needed by their country. That is what the Ameri can boy wants to learn—to be In the position to be discovered so that he can make good, for the yearning country demands that in our Ameri can young manhood."

Deafness Cannot Be Cured by local .applications, as they can l.ot reach the diseased portion of ths ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitu tional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mu cous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hear- ; Ing, and when it is entirely close!. ! Deafness Is the result, and unless \ the Inflammation can be taken out i and this tube restored to Its normal ; I condition, hearing will he destroyed ! forever; nine cases out of ten are j caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the j raucous surfaces.
