CARD OF THANKS.—We wish to thank our many friends and neighbors tor their kindness and help in our trouble and bereayement. S. D. AND VIOLA M. MILLER. NANCY A. BLACK Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. M. Black was born in Burrell township, Decatur county, March 1,1871, and died Oct. 30,1900, aged 29 years and 8 months. She was united in marriage with Wm. Lloyd, March 30, 1897. Iier husband and an infant son three days old still survive her as well as her father and mother, one sister and two brothers and a wide circle of relatives, friends and young associates who feel very keenly her loss. It iB said death ever claims a shining mark, in this case how true. Tne circumstances surrounding her death is particulary sad being it is said the tirst of the kind eyer occurring in our county, yet all that medical aid could do was done and it of the best physicians our county afforded were in attendance from the first yet all was of no avail, and death has claimed his own and we can only say to those sorrowing friends, God knows best. His will be done, and while we bow in humble sub mission to the chastening hand of our heavenly father, let us look up. We know she has gone to rest for her short life was ever one of goodness and char ity to all, striving to do good to others and to make home happy. Rest assur ed that kindness and cheerfulness await her in our Heayenly Father's mansion. May the sorrow stricken friends, though left for a time to their sorrow and feel so keenly and sadly her loss, by God's love be comforted and he," stripes as well as stars and goodness. Peace to her spirit The Druggist Morgan, of Crawfordsville Ind., says: "Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pep sin is a medicine lean conscientiously recommend as it does just as you claim. It is the best laxative I ever saw." Sold by L. Van Werden. STATE AUTHORITY To be Exercised Over County Asy lums for the Insane. The state board of control will begin work immediately, says the Des Moines Register, upon the formulation of rules and regulations governing county insti tutes in which insane persons are main tained. The last legislature passed a measure giving tbe board the power to make rules and regulations, and to en force, them, their violation being suffi cient to give the board power to remove the patients in the county institutions to the state hospitals, provided, how ever, that the matter could be taken to the courts by interested persons and there adjudicated. A systematic examination of the county aBylums has been made by the members of the board. This work has just been completed. The information obtained will be classified and tbe work of making the rules undertaken this week. The work may consume con siderable time. The board anticipates no particular difiiculty in inducing the county managements to conform to their recommendation. It is learned incidentiallv, that the principal com plaint against the county institutions as they are managed now, is tbe paucitv of attendants. More attendants wifl cost more in salaries. A move in this direction will work both ways. The counties largely took patients from tbe state hospitals to save money the hir ing of new attendants will inciease the expenditure on account of the county insane but it will afford more salaried places.

E AMERICAN PETROLEUM PRODUCT CO. Office and Refinery, Findlay, Ohio, EN ROUTE, In his own picturespue way Colonel W a "terson cotrvdi tions which may be surely counted upon as bound' to occur as a result of the recent com plete triumph of the republican party. As usual the colonel does not mince words. He says: "As the democrats are cast down by the result of this elec tion, so will the republicaLS be elated and thrown off tbeir guard. They will fancy they have the world in a sling. They are certain to proceed to excesses. They can not restrain their zealotB or their scamps. All tbe clever rogues of the times, seeing where the pickings and stealings lie, have got into the republi can party. The new territories are veritable gold mines of pillage. Acts of outrage can not be repressed or escaped. The people at home will stand aghast at the riot of corruption and depotism." If the prophecy made by Colonel Wat terson should happen to lack fulfill ment, then would the most remarkabl political miracle in the annals of tbe world have been performed. Men who, like the editor of, the Courier-Journal, remember how the re publican party, when it was in undis puted possession of all the branches of the federal government in Grant's time, was the begetter of a saturnalia of rob bery, carried on by its carpetbag thieves who looted the treasuries of the recon structed governments in the southern states, can logically believe that a simi lar crop of crimes will grow out of the recent successes of tbe same party. Already, in the first four years of Mr. McKinley's presidency, we have wit nessed a repetition in kind of the Whis ky Ring, the Credit Mobilier and rotten navy jobs of the days when Zach Chand ler, Oliver P. Morton, Thad Stevens, "Smiler" Colfax, "Laundanlet" Wil liams, Robeson, Babcock and men of their ilk had charge ot the republican m(Rhine, by seeing the scandalous job b$ty and swindling that was exhibited in the exorbitant prices of unseaworthy transports by Alger and his coterie, in the Oberlin M. Carter revelations and in the Rathbone and Neely defalcations in Cuba. v,v- An era of extravagance in public* ex penditures and of looting and pilfering by appointees of the administration is promised, nay, impending during the next few years which will make some of the past performances of the repub lican party in these lines look by com parison like rigid economy and petty larceny. Mark tbe prediction.—Kansas City Times. B«an vest Ear], Pa. Hood's Sarsaparilla A Remarkable Family. Sun.lay's Chicago American contained the following account of Mr. Herbert Scott and family, of Navilleton, Ind. Two of the sons of this sturdy family reside in this county, W. W. Scott at Lamoni and Carter Scott at Davis City. Frank J. Scott, another son, was at one time auditor of Decatur county. New Albany, Ind., Nov. 24.—The ven erable Herbert Scott, Iwho lives at Na villeton, this county,is proud of the fact that his family cast more votes for Wil liam Jennings Bryan at the recent elec tion than any other one family in the country. The family of Mr. Scott and his wife consists of fifteen children, nine of them boys and all voters. Therefore with the vote of the father, the democratic nominee tor president received ten votes from this branch of the Scott family tree. This family is remarkable in other ways. In addition to rearing success fully a family of fifteen children, Mr. Scott is grateful for the fact that there has never been a death in the family. Mr. and Mrs. Scott have, in addition to this, reared to young manhood and womanhood four orphans. Mr. and Mrs. Scott celebrated recent ly the fiftieth anniversary of their wed ding and their fifteen children were present to help along ihe festivities. This occasion was one which attracted attention all over Indiana. The story of tbe successful rearing of such a large family caused great interest, but, in ad dition, Mr. ficott is one of ten brothers, each one of which has reared large fami lies. All the relatives were present on the day the anniversary was celebrated, and no less than sixty members of the Scott family stood together after dinner and were photographed, The members of Herbert Scott's own family, seventeen in number, including the parents, were then photographed, as shown in the accompanying picture. There were represented at the gathering four generations of this family. That the members down to the fourth gener. ation bad never been oalled upon to mourn a death is probably the most re markable of all the features connected with the family. Until they gathered to celebrate tbe anniversary of their parents' wedding all the brothers and sisters had neyer met togethei under the family roof tree at tlie same time. The children are as follows: Frank J. Scott, who was formerly auditor of one of the latgest counties in Iowaj Profes sor Samuel Scott, superintendent of schools of Clark count}, Ind. Professor JobxR. Scott, an instructor at the In diana Reformatory William Scott, a lawyer Carter Scott, an Iowa merchant infield, Daniel, Voorhees, Kenor and Glen Scott complete the list of boys. The daughters are Mrs. Jennie Bell, Indianapolis, Mrs. Melvina Mason, Mrs. Emma Sample and Misses Eliza, Lizzie and Eva Scott, Two of the children have grandchildren. Herbert Scott's father, now long since dead, came from Virginia in tbe early part of the century, settling in Floyd county. He was a power in this locali ty and was looked upon as one of the leading men of early Indiana. His progeny is of the same sturdy stock. All of them are religiously inclined, most of them being followers of Alexan der. Campbell and members of the Christian church. For years the Scott families have been a dominant factor in local politics. So numerous is the relationship that when one of the name comes out as a candi date for a county office, their opponents usually see the handwriting on the wall and withdraw. ii—' Charles Scott, a nephew of Herbert, lAvwAnwHlND RonUtHVlinWHHwk of this county, and an- 4# Miners on a strike in Indiana!
