It Is said that Edward Atkinson, the Chief Mogul of unti-itnperlalism, is very fond of dried upples. This suggests the possibility of making an expansionist of the Hon. Edward by the simple process of filling him witn water after an Indulgence in his favorite fruit. Thk February election for borough o dices is an important one to the citi zens of Shenandoah. The nominees of both parties should be subject to the closest scrutiny, to the end tlmt an improvement be made in the char acter of local municipal officers. Nominate and elect none but com petent men. Evkry citizen of a free country has, says the New York Times, an un doubted right to criticise the acts and politics of his own government, but this right has its limitations, and that citizen whose criticism tends to make J I. nt 1.1- Annnf.i,la task may well consider himself for tunate when his wisdom or the ac- "Tcuracy" of his information, and not his patriotism, is questioned.

And they both need it as we previously remarked, in allopathy doses. Our editorial brother, like ourselves, knows what remedy is needed, and is heroically administering it. We are still of the opinion, however, that he is beginning at the wrong end. While we are reforming the Republican leaders, apply also the lash to those "brilliant newspaper men" who ply their trade at the sacrifice of regu larly nominated Republican candi dates. Our editorial brother has had sufficient experience with some of them to enable him to take the hint. "With hope millions stand on the closing day of the year with faces toward the future," writes Mrs. Ham ilton Mott in the January Ladles' Home Journal.

BROUGHT BACK FROM TJIIi GRAVE. Last November Mr. loseph Tames, nainter. of 325 W. Pearl St.. Indlanano- fis, Iud., was at death's door with quick consumption. Wasted to a skeleton; his lungs a mass of ulceration;' his death was hourly awaited by his doctor and family. He was kept in a constant stupor with opium. A friend, thinking to relieve his terrible cough, gave him a bottle of Brazilian Halm. Seeing its wonderful effect, the doctor advised Hts continued use. Mr. James soon after dismissed uis doctor, ana depended on the Balm alone. His recovery was rapid utid complete, and in February he returned to work. His lungs are sound, and his wight greater than at any time in his life. His recovery is regarded as almost a miracle. COMMA IIAC1LI.US. In consumption beware of cough mix tures and prescriptions that contain opium. Opium paralizes the nerves, and gives the comma bacillus a good chance to destroy the limes. It is always fatal, Brazilian Balm does not contain a trace of any opiate, but stimu lates the nerves with new life and power, destroys the microbe, and restores all that is left of the diseased lunga to a sound and healthy state which'no other remedy has ever been Known to accom plish.
