Extracts from an article by Jonn Stone Pardee, in Goodhue ( Minn.) Country News S. forceful man, n masterful man is Johnson—a southerner, by the way, from Kentucky and Virginia blood like the great president, self taught after his common schooling, a man of affairs, a man who does things. He started picking up scrap iron for a street railway. In a few months he was a clerk in the office, in two years ho was president of the road. He went to Cleveland and got some people to buy a wreck of a street railroad and put him in as manager ; made it tne nest property in the city. He invented a new form of rail and started mills to manufacture it. He accumulated various interests and saw that everyone returned a profit. He is a builder; never made a cent by tearing down, but always by building up. Incidentally he never had a strike in his works or on his roads. He has the strength of Hill, the astuteness of Carnegie, the bolduess of Morgan. He started on their road to wealth and power, but other than their ambitions seized him. Hill is using his colossal strength for Hill. Carnegie's astuteness was all for Carnegie till wealth became a burden and he fell to the labor of giving away what cost so much —his and Homestead's—to accumu late. Morgan's boldness is that he may have a $5,000 bulldog, a $150, 000 painting, a $300,000 yacht, mil lion-dollar puppets. Johnson's new ambition is to serve the public. He has begun in Cleveland on a programme of fair taxation and three-cent fares. He Bhcfliiwilsm Rheumatic pains are the cries of protest and distress from tortured muscles, aching Joints and excited nerves. The blood has been poisoned by the accumulation of waste matter in the system, and can no longer supply the pure and health sustain ing food they require. The whole system feels the effect of this acid poison ; and not until the blood has been purified and brought back to a healthy condition trill the aches and pains cease. Mr«. James Kell, of 707 Ninth street, N. E., Washington, D. C, writes as follows: "A few months ago I had an attack of S ci at ic Rheuma* tism in its worst form. The pain was so intense that I became completely pros trated. The attack waa an an usually severe one, and fejr condition was regard ai as being very danger ous.

Development of the Jennings Oil Field. •Jennings, La., Nov. 2.").—The last few days have scon a very I ! marked increase in the interest that j ! is being taken in the development of the oil fields. The success of the work at the Jennings No. I and the ! finding of fine indications of oil at all the wells now being drilled, have added new stimulus to the situa tion and brought new money to town. Several important events have taken place in the last day or two, but the most important one, as re gards the future of the field, was consummated this morning, when the English syndicate, represented by Messrs. Fitzhugh, Beauregard and Eastlake of London, and ('apt. Falkowicz of Vienna, closed a con tract for a portion of the Latrille and Hosea tracts, lying east of the j Jennings No. 1, being a portion of the same tracts 111*011 which are located the Prairie Mamou and Crowley companies and the pros pective well of the Evangeline Oil Company. These gentlemen were represented here a few weeks ago by Capt. Falkowicz, who, after making a very careful investigation, gave it out, as his opinion, that the field would develop into the best the world has ever known. The gentlemen to-day put up guarantee of commencing opera tions within six weeks. They have already given orders for the derrick lumber, and will be at work in much less than the required time. A Russian drilling rig is now 011 its way here, and may arrive very shortly. It differs greatly from the rigs now being used here, princi pally because it is adapted for handling large pipe, twenty-eight inch pipe. The use of this class of machinery is carrying out the theory of Capt. Falkowicz, that the sand is such that it precludes the possibility of getting a gusher of any magni tude. Modern Surgery Sur/Hissetl. "While suffering from a bnd case of piles I consulted a physician who advised me to try a box of DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve," says (1. P. Carter, Atlanta, Oa. •'I procured a box and was entirely cured. DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve is a splendid cure for piles, giving relief instantly, and Witt's Witch Hazel Salve will cure any case. Cuts, burns, bruises and all other wounds are also quickly cured by it. Be ware of counterfeits. Julins Koch. A Cleveland justice of the peace has decided that it is not wrong to rob a trust. A man charged with stealing $1 worth of brass from the Standard Oil Co. was discharged by him, the justice saying: "This is a case of retributive justice. The Standard steals from the poor, and the poor steal from the Stand ard." It is fortunate that a justice of the peace decision does not stand as much of a precedent ; the out look would be very gloomy for the man who prefers to not steal at all. s Repairing Neatly Done Never thought of such a sign for a medicine did you ? Well, it's a good sign for Scott's Emulsion. The body has to be repaired like other things and Scott's Emulsion is the medicine that does it. These poor bodies wear out from worry, from over -work, from disease. They get thin and weak. Some of the new (»lies are not well made—and all of the old ones are racked f rom long usage. Scott's Emulsion fixes all kinds. It does the work both inside and out. It makes soft bones hard, thin blood red, weak lungs strong, hollow places full. Only the best ma terials are used in the patching and the patches don't show through the new glow of health. No one has to wait his turn. You can do it yourself- you and the bottle.

Republican Tariff Revision. Governor Ilabcock, republican, in an interview Nov. 14th, said: "My idea as to tariff revision is simple. It is this: Where by changed conditions tariff duties have become exorbitant,far beyond the needs of protection, 1 would put them where they would pro tent labor, but not to a point that would create a monopoly of trade and raise prices to consumers. In other words, if it eosts $1 to pro duce an article abroad and $1.40 to produce it in this country 1 would favor a 50 per cent duty to protect our workmen, but 1 would not fa vor a duty of 200 per cent, which would simply afford a margin for ncreasing the price to our own consumers, There is 110 departure principles in that. T am as ardent an advocnte of the republican doc trine of protection to American in dustries as there is in this country. The question this congress will be called upon to answer is, Will it permit a tariff duty to remain iu force so as to enable a trust to pay dividends 011 watered stockt I want to give the small manufacturer all the pçotection lie needs. These small concerns, legitimately capi talized, cau pay dividends with a rate of tariff upon which the steel trust would have to puss its divi dends on its common and prefer red stock." «1» Stops tbe Cough aod Works off the Cold.
