Miami Aews. Saline county Democrats are hav mg the smoothest walk-over this year. Never before were they so confident of piling up a big majority as they are now, and the opposition is not strong enongh to create a rip ple on a duck pond. The Republi cans will hardly poll their natural strength, while the Populists lack leadership and following.- At the last election the head of their state ticket received 582 votes. Then they had organization and leader ship. Now they have neither, and since Mr. Frather ceased guiding them they have fallen to pieces, and the returns will show a decrease of fall 50 per cent. They died young but they died game. Democrat- Xews. Thebe is no medicine so often needed in every home and so ad mirably adapted to the purposes for which it is intended, as Chamber lain's Pain Balm.
