Thumbnail for

weary from pain and the torture of
over-taxed nerves, it is but natural that
you should be low-spirited and de
jected. Worn-out by the care, the
worry and the long suffering from
weaknesses that have baffled the best
efforts of your family doctor, it is no
wonder you have become discouraged,
and think there is nothing left for you
but suffering and misery. Do not give
up all hope, do not lose all courage.
Remember Dr. Miles' Nervine has
helped thousands of despondent wom
en to regain their lost health and fail
ing strength. It quiets the irritated
nerves, rests the weary brain and
drives worry and care away. It gives
zest to the failing appetite, invigorates
the digestion and adds new strength
and vigor to the whole system. Don't
forget the name.
"Change of life left me a total
wreck and I suffered nervousness,
rheumatism, heart trouble and dropsy.
When I commenced taking Dr. Miles'
Nervine last December I was thought
to be in the last stages of nervous pros
tration and was scarcely able to move
about the house. I began to improve
almost from the first dose, and in a few
months I was enjoying better health
than I had before in fifteen years. I
am now able to walk ten or a dozen
blocks without feeling in the least fa
tigued, and I bless the day I first heard
of Dr. Miles' Nervine."

The nightmare labeled "Porto Rico
tariff" still hovers over the pillows of
prominent Republicans and destroys
their rest. Conferences are held every
day with Mr. McKlnloy by senators who
favor the tariff and by senators who
favor free trade, and the odd thing Is
that both classes of senators talk as
though they believe Mr. McKinloy to be
on their side. All sorts of propositions
are being advanced by Republican sen
ators to avoid anything like an open
rupture in their party on this question,
one of them being to continue the de
bate until the close of tho session with
out allowing the bill to come to a vote,
and another to load it up with all sorts
of amendments and then defeat It by
an overwhelming vote. The Republi
can party is in control of all branches
of the government and for it to fail to
place Itself on recerd by positive legis
lation on this question would be an
acknowledgment of weakness that
would be absolutely certain to drive the
party from power. That is why they
will have to patch up some sort of legis
t t t
That alleged offer of the good offices
of this government to facilitate negotia
tions for peace between Great Britian
and tho Dutch republics in South Africa
was confirmatory rather than otherwise
of the belief that an understanding
exists between the McKinley adminis
tration and the present British govern
ment. It enabled Mr. McKinley to
make an attempt to soothe the numerous
Republican sympathizers with the two
struggling republics, by pretending to
do something, and at the same time
gave Lord Salisbury just what he wanted
—an excuse to serve notice on the
powers of Europe, through his answer
to the alleged offer of our good offices
that no mediation would be tolerated by
Great Britain, and that the conquest
of the two republics would be pushed to
a conclusion as originally planned. If
that was not the result of an under
standing between the British govern
ment and the McKinley administration,
it was one of the oddest coincidents
that ever occurred.
Foreign policies are not the only
things this administration is copying
frem European nations. Secretary
Long has created a board to bo known
as the naval policy board, corresponding
to the general staff of European navies,
which will control our navy both in
peace and war. Admiral Dewey Is head
of the new board. Inasmuch as our
navy has got along for more than a
century, during which it has won some
of the greatest victories ever fought on
water, the reason for such a radical
departure is not apparent. Loss red
tape, not more, would seem to be what
is needed. As long as Dewey Is at the
head of the new board, no fear need be
felt about what it may do, but with a
political favorite at its head, it might do
much mischief.
The senate amended the house bill,
placing at Mr. McKinlcy's disposal all
money collected on Porto Rican prod
ucts under the Dingley tariff and all
to be collected thereunder, to be spent
at his discretion for the benefit of the
Porto Ricans, by limiting the money to
the amount collected before the be
ginning of this year—slightly more than
82,000,000 —and providing that it should
he used for public education, public
works or for other governmental pur
poses on the island, and then passed it
without a division.

This Dog Takes Delight in Perpetrat
ing Tricks.
Mr. Storms, who keeps a "natural-
Ists's emporium" in Third avenue,
New York, from which one may get
anything in the natural history line,
from a monkey to a pug dog or a big
rattler to a pollywog, is the owner of
a greyhound that is a practical Joker.
When the warm weather came he was
obliged to keep his store door open in
order to get more air for his numerous
animals. That some of his dogs, cats,
tortoises etc.. that run about in the
store might not wander into the street,
Mr. Storms had a closely woven gate
about four feet in height put into the
The greyhound is a pet of the familv
and has been taught many tricks. One
of her accomplishments is high jump
ing, and her master, in order to arnuse
the ghildren of the neighborhood, and
exorcise the dog at the same time, has
often made her jump the iron gate.
A woman carrying a large bundle on
her head a short time ago was fright
ened into dropping it and running oft
with a piercing shriek when ft hu-ge
greyhound alighted on the sldftwalk
immediately in front of her as if it
had dropped from the sky. The dog
seemed to join the laugh of the crowd
which had collected to watch her
graceful leaps, for her eves twinkled
and her tall wagged at a great rate.
Since then the dog has made a prac
tice of thus startling pedestrians by
jumping the gate and landing direct
ly in front of them and after escaping
Into the middle of the street, to be out
of reach of a kick or a blow, it has
added insult to injury by appearing to
laugh at their discomforture. Watch
tile dog after one of these pranks it is
easy to agree with Mr. Storms that
dogs like a joke Just as a man would,
and that the greyhound plays those
jokes out of pure fun.
I.ike many other practical jokers
the greyhound has gotten into trouble,
or rather she has succeeded in getting
her master into trouble, with the po
lice. Somebody has complained about
the dog's humorous proclivities, and
Mr. Storms has been notified, that
while it is not unlawful to keep a li
censed dog, or to use a wire gate, yet
all combined for the purpose of fright
ening persons would amount to a mis
demeanor if continued.
A Doubtful Charge When the Offender
la a Known Drinker.
A Philadelphia Magistrate has sur
prised the business community in that
city by his disposition of a charge of
embezzlement. The defendant was
the driver of a delivery wagon for a
firm of furniture dealers. Being sent
out to deliver goods and collect the
money for them from the purchasers
he collected 19, spent the entire sum
for drink and returned to his employ
ers without a cent. It appears that
they were well aware of his drunken
tendencies long before he thus appro
priated their money.
The Magistrate refused to enter
tain the accusation of embezzlement
against the collector, saying: "Where
a Arm intrusts with money a person
whom they have reason to suspect of
intemperate habits and he does not
appropriate the soney to his own use
or make off with it otherwise than to
indulge In the gratification of his
habit, employers must understand
that It is extremely doubtful whether
the crime of embezzlement aq be
made out under such circumstftnces."
In New York no act committed by a
person in a voluntary state of intoxi
cation is deemed less criminal because
the defendant was intoxicated, but the
fact of his being in that condition is
always to be considered in ascertain
ing the intent with which he acted.

Favorite Perfumee.
A great many well-known men and
women have been fond of different
scents, as is historically known, but
it is hard to say how far their char
acters fit in with this new idea. For
instance. Nero loved the scent of
roses, whether distilled or from the
freshly-cut flowers; Louis XIV. de
lighted in the perfume of orange
flowers; while Richelieu liked a diff
erent scent in each of the rooms; the
Empress Josephine soaked her things
in musk; and Napoleon iftsaid to have
emptied a whole bottle of eau-de-
Cologne over his clothes when he was
dressed; Victor Hugo rejoiced in wild
flowers; Alexandre Dumas loved the
flowering myrtle, and Charles Dickens
adored white jasmine.

other country.

A Suicide Table Where Scores
Have Despaired.
A Bridal Couple's Tragedy—Gulcldaa
Know Their Fate—Few Try to Es
cape Their Goal—lncidents of the
World's Most Famous Gambling
To the right of the Moorish salon, the
second from the entrance In the great
gambling rooms of Monte Carlo, stands
the suicide table.
This accursed piece of furniture has
a record of causing 113 suicides In ten
years, according to the count kept by
C. Benvenlsll, formerly chief of the de
tectives in this room.
Even the chairs of this table differ
In the intensity of their hoodooed state.
The chair to the left of the croupier
facing the entrance door has claimed
seventeen victims. The twenty-third
chair accommodated eleven suicides,
six women and five men. The others
have records of eight, Ave, four, three
and one death.
One day five years ago, writes M.
Renvenistl in the Chicago Inter-Ocean,
my neighbor at the table was a young
Parisian. He sat In one of the one
death chairs, and won. When the doors
closed he carried off 200.000 francs.
Imagine my anticipations when next
morning I found him installed to the
left of the croupier. I felt like tearing
him away or slipping a card into his
hand, to warn him against the seat he
had choßen, but my official character
forbade me to interfere, and, besides,
my advice would have been scorned,
for the fellow gambled like one mad.
He lost his winnings of the day before
and 200,000 francs of his own money.
When his last 1,000 franc note was gone
he rose, and swaying to and fro like a
drunkard, stumbled out of the hall,
laughing immoderately.
Two of my men led a merry chase
for this unfortunate, and when they
caught up with him he jumped off the
railway bridge, knocking out hisbrains.
Another case that haunts my
dreams! One day an elderly gentleman,
Signor Antonio Cesare, who knew my
connection with the Casino compelled
me to give him the seat I was occupy
ing, next to the croupier. I did so with
a bleeding heart, for this old tpan was
the very picture of health, and I was
an intimate friend of his cousin, the
Mayor of Bentimigii.
Well, this gentleman lost nearly a
hundred thousand francs in the day
and evening. When he got up, his own
mother wouldn't have known him. He
looked ten years older; his flesh had
fallen away; madness stared out of his
eyes. Next day they fished his body
from the lake at Mentone.
Then there were the Parlingtons, re
fined English people. They were on
their wedding trip. I never forgot the
look of delight with which young Mrs.
Partington pocketed her first small
gain. The pretty bride fairly coaxed her
husband to stake 10 francs.
When night came they had a couple
of thousand francs In their pockets.
Next morning they took chairs Nos.
23 and 24. No. 23 brought them the usu
al luck. They gained 30,000 francs. Hut
on the following day came the inevita
ble change. The 30,000 francs went back
to us, and the couple's little fortune
followed. They walked from the room
deathly pale, hand in hand.
My detectives informed me that they
took the train for Nice without troub
ling about their baggage. They shot
and killed themselves in the Windsor
Hotel there. Everybody can see that
the cloth on the suicide table la of more
recent make than the rest. Yet the
Casino company is only 318 francs the
poorer on that account.
Here are the figures: Cloth for double
table, 250 francs, painting of yellow fig
ures, 50 francs; nailing down, 18 francs;
total, 318 francs.
Against these figures there is an off
set of 600 francs, which the Casino
company would have been obliged to
pay the young Russian for traveling
expenses. This Muscovite Prince re
fused to become a pensioner of M.
Ilia no's heirs, and blew out his brains
over the table where he had dropped
his all, —400,000 francs.
It happened two years ago, and it
nearly cost me my job. The circum
stances that one of the directors of
the company drew me into a corner
to talk about the same Russian's per
sistent ill-luck just a minute before
the shot rang out—that alone saved
me from disgrace.
The incident itself was soon forgotten
and had no bearing on the game. It
has nothing to do with the supersti
tions attaching to the suicide table.
The ill reputation of that piece of fur
niture was of many years' standing
when the Russian committed his flag
rant breach of Casino etiquette. He
was No. 85 on my list of unfortunates.
When I saw a man or woman ap
proach the suicide state, my first care
was to prevent him or her from spoil
ing more cloth. I signalled my men to
press around the party, and prevent
him or her from putting a hand In the
pocket or from striking the croupier.
Many desperate cases I approached
as a fellow gambler, offering to assist
them and pay their homeward journey.
I dare say my intervention—which
cost me nothing, as the company re
couped me—has saved many a poor
devil's life.
Whether suicide candidates have a
foreboding of evil when they come to
jur table. I don't know, but a few try
to escape their goal. They come flanked
by prayers or holding a piece of hang'
man's rope. Others try to insure their
fortune by paying the croupier 100
francs before the day's work begins.
D? course he accepts the bribe. He isn't
tampering with his employer's profits.

Notes and Comments, Political and
Otherwise, on Matters of Public
The administration is confronted by
a very annoying problem. It finds
Senators Hoar, Mason and Hale, as
well as Edward Atkinson, arrayed
uncompromisingly against the policy
of imperialism, and yet it is afraid to
read them out of the party. Whether
they are likely to cause less disturb
ance Inside the party than they would
outside is the question Mr. McKinley
Is trying to help Mr. Hanna to decide.
Senator Cockrell, in the debate on
the currency bill, denounced the act of
'73 as a crime against man. against
God, against humanity, against Chris
tianity, the Republican senators
sat like a band of sneak thieves and
gave their assent by their silence. For
twenty years after the Infamous act
was passed not a member of either
house or senate would admit that he
knew its effect was to demonetize sil
ver, but now such men as Hanna pre
tend to say that the crime was commit
ted after a full discussion and without
protest from the people.
There is no doubt as to where the
workingmen of this country stand on
the subject of imperialism. The nine
teenth annual convention of the Amer
ican Federation of Labor, held recently
at Detroit, passed the following reso
lution: "Resolved, That we are op
posed to wars of conquest, either in Af
rica or the Philippines: that we most
emphatically protest against the forci
ble annexation to this country of either
Porto Rico. Cuba. Guam or the Philip
pines, and that we are equally opposed
to any increase in the regular army of
the United States beyond the limit of
25,000 enlisted men and officers." No
class of men so well understand the
dangers of having a large standing
array as do those who labor with their
hands. Too often have their comrades
been shot down in cold blood on slight
provocation for laboring men to take
kindly to the military idea.
It has been said that the way to
reach a man's heart is byway of his
stomach, and the quickest way to
reach some men's political judgment
is through the same avenue. In 1896
no class of men worked harder for
Hanna and McKinley than the com
mercial drummers, but now they see
thousands of their number thrown out
of employment and thousands more
threatened with a like fate by the gi
gantic trusts that have sprung up un
der McKlnlevism and are defended by
Mr. Hanna as being worthy of encour
agement. The commercial drummers
and hotel men have formed an anti
trust league and incorporated it under
the laws of New York. They declare
In their manifesto that it makes no
difference whether we have free trade
or a protective tariff, whether the out
lying islands of the sea, proximate or
mote, are made colonies or not if the
commercial man must get off the road
and be deprived of his position. They
should have learned long ago which
party is the friend of monopoly and
capitalism, but as late is better than
never, we shall expect t.hem now to
turn in to help defeat the money trust
and tariff trust which are responsible
for most of the others.
No better illustration of the supreme
selfishness of a protective tariff has
been afforded than that furnished by
the action of the Pennsylvania Edi
torial association at a meeting held
recently at Harrisburg. Many of the
editors in attendance have for long
years been preaching protective tariff
and its righteousness. As long as the
tariff put up the price of the farmer's
plow and the mechanic's plane the Re
publican editor thought it all right, but
since the gentlemen in the protected
industries have grown so greedy and
so reckless as to begin picking the
pockets of their best friends, the
editors themselves, the brethren begin
to squeal and loudly demand that the
government cease giving aid and com
fort to that particular class of pick
pockets who steel from editors under
the sanction of law and in the name
of protection. Not a word of protest
comes from the Republican editor as
long as the protection robber takes
from the farmer and the mechanic, but
when the tariff baron reaches for the
profits of the editor, his action is de
nounced us a grievous injustice. They
declare that such stealing is putting
a tax on knowledge, literature, intel
ligence and so on. and cannot be tol
erated. If a tariff could tax out of
existence all such foolish and mis
chievous knowledge and literature as
is sent out by tariff organs, it might
for once in the world's history lie said
to have done good and not harm. One
of the resolutions passed unanimously
by the Editorial association is that "no
trust should be fostered by legislation,
such as tariff duties; in other words,
if trusts are honestly organized to re
duce expenses and consequently the
price of products, they should depend
on their own business sagacity, and
not upon protection given to them by
the government." In all reason why
should not this principle apply to the
individual or the corporation as well
as to the trust? If a man under a
government that grants no special
privileges fails to make money in a
business venture, it is evidence con
clusive that he either has gone into a
wrong business or lacks business abil
ity, and in either case why should his
neighbors be taxed for his benefit?
Taxation for the purpose of paying the
legitimate expenses oft government is
right, but taxing some citizens in or
der to give the money to others is
an outrage. Gradually, but far too
slowly, the people are awakening to the
criminal folly of taxation under the
false pretenses of protection.
Mark Hanna should rebuke the com
mercial travelers and hotel men who
have formed an anti-trust league for
the purpose, as they say, of "bringing
about a more thorough co-operation in
agitating a widespread anti-trust sen
timent. and to support with our votes
men who make a determined effort to
assist commercial travelers from Maine
to California in a legislative way."
These people evidently believe that
trusts are harmful, and they thus dif
fer from llanna—Both cannot be right.
