If an example were necessary to demonstrate that the American peo ple are one in sentiment in the hour of a great calamity, such an example has been furnished in the recent as sasination of President McKinley. Both the press and the people have freely spoken their praises of the late chief magistrate and not less heartfelt or sincere have been the tributes which have been paid to him by his political opponents than those which have come from his friends and sup porters. That people shall differ from one another in political opinion in this country, where every citizen has a voice in the government, is accepted as a matter of course. That a portion of the people should honestly believe that the policy of the administration was an unnecessary departure from the spirit and traditions of American institutions and that they should even view with apprehension a policy so different from that to which they were accustomed was also to be expect ed. But however freely they criticise, these criticisms are not aimed at the man, but at the principles which he represented. And scarcely any high er tribute could be paid to William McKinley than that those of an op posite political faith should give him credit for honesty and sincerity of purpose even though they differed most radically from him and were avowedly opposed to the principles to which he subscribed.

Peru, Ind., Oct. 4 Two inches of snow fell in the northern part of Mi ami county yesterday. The snow storm was preceded by a heavy fall of hail, and the mercury dropped almost to the freezing point. At Macy the fall of snow is reported to have ex ceeded a depth of two inches. The weather in this part of the state to day is reported the mast severe experienced this early in the season twenty-five years. Welcomed a Tramp. XoRTn Vernon, Ind., Oct. 4 Mrs. Rosa Lupton, living at the edge of this city, was attacked at her home by a tramp. The big burly fellow was at tempting to force an entrance through a door that Mrs. Lupton had barred when she first detected his presence. When the door gave way Mrs. Lupton met him with a revolver, and as the tramp fled she emptied the contents of the gun in his direction. The tramp fell at the last shot, but made his es cape. Mrs. Lupton then notified the police Wilson-Humphreys Plant Burned. LooANsrouT, Ind., Sept. 30 The printing plant of the Wilson-Humphreys company on Erie avenue was damaged bv fire Saturday afternoon. The second story, in which were three linotype machines and the composing rooms, was wrecked. The bindery on the third' floor was badly damaged and all the stock ruined bv smoke and water, while the pressroom on the first floor was l'.ooded, although little damage was done there by the flames. The fire started in the linotype-room, it is thought, from a defective electric wire. The company estimates its loss at $40,000, about one-half in sured. One hundred persons will be out of employment until the company can make repairs. To Kidnap Gov. Taylor. Indianapolis, Ind., Sept. 30, Governor Durbm has been told that an attempt will be made to arrest W. S. Taylor, former governor of Kentucky, and Charles Finley, former secretary of state, and an endeavor made to take them out of Indiana. Governor Durbin immediately noti ced Arthur Goebel, who is awaiting the governor's action on the requisi tion presented for Taylor and Finley, that if any such move is made he will hold the guilty parties responsible, no matter who or where they are. Despite denials of Police Superin tendent Quiglsy, it has been establish ed that his men have not for a minute lost sight of Taylor and Finley for some days. It is generally believed Governor Durbin will refuse to honor the re quisition. The Cashier Played Craps. Washington, Ind., Sept. 30 After the bank officials had kept the matter secret from the public for several weeks, it became known that R. C. Davis, who recently resigned as cashier of the People's national bank, was forced to the action because of an al leged shortage of $51,680. Davis claims his downfall was due to gamb ling, and It Is said he lost $30,000 "shooting caps'.,, It is said that the condition of the cashier's accounts was discovered by his recalling a letter mailed by Presi dent , Burke of. the People's bank to the Capital national bank at Indiana polis, which dealt with the business relations of thelndianapolisbank. The president of the Capital bank tele phoned Mr. Burke concering the mat ter and learned that there was a wide misunderstanding in regard to their dealings. The next day Vice presi dent Packard of the Capital national bank arrived from Indianapolis and readily proved , to the People's bank officials ' that the Washington bank was the Capital bank's debtor in the sum of $15,000 instead of having a credit of $8,000 as the People's bank books showed. When the discrepancy was .made clear the resignation of Davis was demanded and his books were investigated. A MODEL FARM The Estate of Senator Parks in Bourbon Township. Many Plymouth visitors to the Bourbon fair last week have remarked upon the clean and progressive appear ance of the magnificent estate owned by Senator John W. Parks, adjoining Bourbon on the west and lying on both sides of the railroad. This is one Of the best, as it is one of th largest, farms in Marshall county and it dem onstrates what intelligent scientific direction can accomplish in agricul ture, for the property, though a very old farm, is today yielding profitable returns, while other farms that were equally good in soil and opportunity have worn out and lost value. . James O. Tarks, the father of the senator, was the first settler in Bour bon township; he named the township and afterwards the town after the Kentucky county in which he was raised. He entered considerable tracts of land and bought other tracts from the original entrvmen until he owned a very large estate near Bour bon. He built the first frame house in that locality, and in this house John W. Parks was born, and he get an example of thrift, energy and in telligent agriculture that did much to influence his neighbors in the direction of right farm practice. On the death of his father Senator Parks inherited that body of land ly ing on the west of Bourbon and to this he has added other tracts until the present splendid holding is the result. In his management of the property he has continued the wise example of his father in enterprise and progressiveness. While Mr. Parks is a busy lawyer he is never too busy to give close personal attention to his farming interests and to devise new plans, consider new methods and to superintend all important undertak ings. He is foremost in farmers' in stitutes and believes in scientific education as the most important fac tor of success in agriculture. The prosperity of Marshall county must depend almost exclusively upon the land and its productiveness and it is a pleasure to chronicle the efforts of prominent farmers to raise the stan 1 1 - .i : r ; l iMiub ui iiieir pruiebbioii aim in mis manner contribute to the general wel fare of the community, as Mr. Parks and others whom we have namctf and 1 i . m iicjciuuT name are aomg. SOME TRUTHS ABOUT THE TAYLOR REQUISITION (Sol. Hathaway In The Independent.) Indianapolis In the exercise of the low cunning that distinguishes the late Senator Goebel's followers, they have taken advantage of the state of public feel ing brought about by the assassina tion of President McKinley to renew the demand for the extradition of Williams. Taylor and Charles Fin ley, to answer to the charge of con spiring with others to murder Sena tor Goebel, "who was assassinated at Frankfort, Ky., a year ago last Janu ary. It is not necessary to review the circumstances leading up to the tragedy further than to recall the fact that Senator Goebel himself was a man of violent methods and actions. His memorable contest for the nom ination fov governor and the methods employed to accomplish that end resulted in a split in the Democratic party in Kentucky and raised up for him in the ranks of his own party thousands of bitter enemies who hated him with an intensity that could not have been equaled or surpassed in re publican circles. Nothing brought out in the trials at Frankfort gives anything like conclusive proof that a conspiracy to kill Senator Goebel existed. The evidence upon which men. have been convicted and sen tenced to the penitentiary for life was purely circumstantial, and very weak at that. So far as the proceedings were made public and all the evi dence was published through the Associated Press there is nothing to show why the senator should not have been killed by an anti-Goebel demo crat as well as by a republican.' Be that as it may, however, there is abso lutely nothing in the testimony as far as published that connects Mr. Taylor with the crime. Uut because he considered .himself the regularly and legally chosen .gov ernor of Kentucky, and defended his title and rights within the limits of the constitution as was his duty as well as privilege to do, the Goebel gang, headed by the notorious Camp bell whose debauching of courts and juries in Hamilton county, O., made his name infamous have persistently but vainly sought to enmesh him in the so-called conspiracy. But failure to connect Taylor with any conspiracy has not cooled, their thirst for h's blood. They . would glut their ven geance with his life whether Innocent or guilty because he refused to sur render to their chief the office to which he (Taylor) had been fairly elected and which Goebel by fraud and other illegal methods sought to deprive him of. Revenge is the sole motive that prompts Arthur Goebel, Campbell, Chinn and the rest of the unsavory gang to clamor once more at Governor Durbin's door for Taylor's return. The conservative and peace loving democrats of Kentucky have no 'sympathy with their efforts. Thev feel thatGocbelism hasjsufficiently dis graced the state without adding an other forbidding chapter. In com mon with fair-minded people of all classes they trust that Governor Dur bin will adhere to the policy adopted by the late Governor Mount and re fuse to honor Governor Beckham's re- I quisition for Taylor and Finley. Pub lic sentiment in Indiana will fully sustain Governor Durbin if he sends Goebel and Campbell back to Ken tucky empty handed. THE BOERS HAVE A CASE. After two years of tremendous and exhausting effort the power of Great Britain is still unable to quell the dis turbance in South Africa and peace is apparently as far off as at any time. The annexation of the Transvaal dnd the Orange Free State to the British crown has never been made effective, changes of British commanders and policies have failed of results, Kitchen er's proclam?' ions declaring that the war is over and armed Boers are to be seized and punished as brigands and guerrillas did not frighten the burgh ers in the least. Open warfare exists as much now as at any time in the un happy republics of South Africa and the ability of the Boers to carry it on indefinitely appears to be beyond dis pute, while Great Britian has ap proached very near the necessity for conscription to keep her army in the field. The situation is such as to bring in question the propriety and even the legality under international law of Kitchener's proclamation announcing his intention to treat armed Boers as robbers and pirates, should he be so fortunate as to capture any of them. We think his action is not justified by the commonly recognized usages of war and that it will tend to prolong rather than to shorten the period of hostility. That the British government has recognized and admitted a state of belligerency with the Boer republic is unquestioned and that Botha, Dewct, and other Boer generals now in the field represent the war power of t lie Boers has also been admitted by Eng land's offers to treat with them for peace. General Kitchener has not driven the Boer armies from the field, nor has he compelled cither command ers or soldiers to surrender. He has not captured or occupied the territory of thejenemy or made any headway toward subjugation or pacification. How, then, can he do by words and threats what he has failed to do by force of arms? The ivar has not" been ended by agreement of the parties, neither have the Boers at any time suspended mili tary operations or -been driven from the country for which they are fight ing. They have an organized gov ernment and organized armies. They range over the greater part of their territory with fully as much freedom as the British and they are strong enough to confine the British troops to narrow strips close to the railroads and to prevent any general occupa tion of the Transvaal bv the hostile army. They have observed the. rules of civilized warfare and are entitled to all the benefits of those rules. Should Great Britain now persist in her declared purpose to treat the Boer commander and his subordinate orti cers and soldiers as pirates and rob bers, as non-combatant guerrillas, as mere marauders of the mountains, in stead of as soldiers of an organized army in a recognized war, the Boers will have a - case on which they can appeal to the civil ized powers for protection. Soldiers acting under the orders of their su periors and proceeding regularly under usages of war are not brigands and any attempt to treat them as such is a breach of the world's peace such as the nations cannot tolerate. Pushing Wheat into the Ground. As an instance of what can be done by intelligent men when they get in a hurry of work a passerby relates that on Jesse Miller's farm in North township one of the boys was driving six horses to two harrows side by side, another was following with- three horses hitched to a -large float and still another following him with three horses to an extra width drill. He says they were simply pushing the wheat into the ground. Rural Delivery. The rural rarriers from the Plym outh postofiice report constantly in creasing patronage. In the month of September carrier number 1 handled 4,102 pieces, number 2 handled 3,160 and number 3 made a record of 3,763, being a total of 11,025 pieces of mail collected and delivered in the farming community near this city. This is greater than the August record and much greater than a year ago.

"Yes. His wife says it must not occur again." Cincinnati Enquirer. The Woman's Choice. Will She Choose Dr. Experi ment or Dr. Experience? Put the question plainly to any woman : Will you choose the experienced or the experimenting doctor? and there's no doubt about the answer. What woman wants to be the subject of experiments, to drag out weary months while the unskilled practitioner vainly tries various medicines, and charges the sick woman liberally for his experimental failures? Yet willing or unwilling a great many women have to go throughiust such an ordeal. Their disease baffles the local physician. He tries all he knows to effect a cure and fails. Sometimes this goes on for months, sometimes for years, the woman meantime suffering daily torments. Perhaps the difference between the doctoring" of experiment and experi ence cannot be better shown than in the following statement : "For seven years I was confined to bed most of the time," writes Mrs. M. P. Davis, of Honaker, Russell Co., Va. I had four doctors and they said I could not be cured. I had ulceration of uterus and female weakness, so I could not stand on my feet but a short time ; had bearing -down sensation, pain in the small of my back. My stomach and bowels, also leg and feet would swell, and everything I ate hurt me. I could not sleep well, was so short of breath I could not lie down at night ; had sore ness and tenderness over uterus, toubled with' palpitation of heart, and suffered with headache all the time. I would get blind and have fainting spells, had dark rings around my eyes and my eyes seemed bloodshot ; suffered from pain ful periods ; could not lie on my left side. I would have numb spells, pains around my heart every morning, my lungs hurt me a great deal and my shoulders too. I would spit up blood at times, memory was poor, hearing was bad, hands and feet were cold all the time, and I had chills and night-sweats. After the doc tors said I could not Be cured I got hold of one of Dr. Pierce's Memorandum Books and read how he had cured so many patients afflicted like I was so I thought his medicine might help me. I wrote to Dr. Pierce for advice and he sent me a very encouraging letter in reply, advising me to take his Favorite Prescription and ' Golden Medical Dis covery and Pleasant Pellets.1 I got two bottles and used these and felt much better.- I sent and got six bottles more. I can cow work all day and not feel tired at night. I can sleep all night and can eat anything I want at any time. I ca walk and go anywhere I please. I Czzl better than I ever did.

This is thought to be one of the largest yields on record. kinds of work in the house and out doors too. I am sorry I did not take Dr. Pierce's medicine when I first began to have poor health. I could have saved what I paid to humbugs. My friends say that I do not look like the same woman. When I commenced your medicine I only weighed one hundred pounds. Now I weigh one hundred and forty. I thank you a thousand times for your good medicine and yonr kicd ad vice.

" WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE between experiment and experience in treating womanly diseases ? The differ ence between success and failure. The difference between health and sickness, happiness and misery. The reason that Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures so many women is that it is a medicine which is the product of years of experi ence in the treatment and cure of womanly diseases. It is a medi cine made to do certain things and it does what it is made to do. Every woman understands the fine points of this differ ence between experiment and experience. When the housewife engages a cook she demands experi ence. She does net want a cook who is experi menting with unfamiliar recipes. The inexperi enced man might say Why, there's the cook book. It tells how to make anything. All you've got to do is to measure and mix as it instructs and you can't come out wrong. Can't you? The wife knows very much better than that. Given the best recipe in the world it takes experience to make a success of it. The dif ference between the suc cess of Doctor Pierce's Favorite Prescription and the failure of other medicines is the difference of ex perience. It is no experiment to use Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription 'or the cure of womanly ills. Experience the experience of hundreds of thousands of women proclaims that it makes weak women strong and sick women well. Thousands of grateful letters hare been written to Dr. Pierce. They cover cures of every form of womanly disease which is medically curable. They show that w Favorite Prescription " is a perfect regulator, that it dries enfeebling drains; that it heals inflammation and ulceration and cures female weakness. They provt w Favorite Prescription n is the best pre parative for maternity; that it keeps the mother strong and healthy and makes the baby's advent practically painless. Sick and ailing women are invited to consult Dr. Pierce, by letter, free. All correspondence is privately rend, pri vately answered and womanly confi dences are guarded by the same strict professional .privacy which protects the womanly confidences made in a personal consultation with Dr. Pierce.
