Mcl Hossler's fight Is ended. He Is n saddened, discouraged and almost destitute man. He feels like a slave, and he has discovered that It is not possible to do business in this great, liberty-loving land without the per mission of a mighty corporation. If you should tell a people unacquainted with the methods of the Standard Oil company that a concern that deals In millions about as you handle pennies would persecute a simple villager, month In and out; pursue him. threaten him, and finally deny him a chance to make an honest living, they would scarcely credit the information. That Is what John D. Rockefeller did. Chardon, 0., is little more than four corners. Mcl Hossler, who did not believe In trusts, sold oil to the villagers. He peddled from door to door, and because of his belief in freedom he did not sell the product of the Standard Oil company. He could not escape harm even In that little out-of-the-way country town. The octopus would not be denied, and for two years a steady and relentless war was kept up on Mcl Hossler. He bad the spirit of '76 in his breast, and he kept up the war, not only because he desired to live, but for the great principle that was at stake. No matter how cheaply he offered his wares, the Standard was willing to sell cheaper, or to supply customers free of charge. By the very force of his character he kept the bulk of his trade long after his little resources were exhausted. He could have sold out to the trust, but ho made up his mind to die fighting. Some of the women of Chardon so admired his stand that when the Standard presented them with cans of oil they overturned them into the street, and continued to buy of Mcl Hossler. Why didn't he appeal to the courts? What chance would an oil peddler, with a few coppers in his pocket, have in a contest with a billionaire? And inch by inch the free oil proposition gained headway. You can not blame the people. Few of them are fighters. Most of them are poor. The pennies saved by patronizing the trust looked bigger than a principle, and bo Mcl Hossler was ruined. Just as thousands have been ruined. "I'll get a pick and shovel and hunt for work at $1.50 a day, and try to pay off the mortgage," he said. And yet, thank God! there are millions of men who, today, would rather stand in the shoes of the ruined old peddler than wear the crown of the oil king. AMHtICAN T* GET BU HAT (Scripps News Association.) ROME, Mar. 3.—Tlie pope informed an intimate friend today that there would not be time at the first consis tory this year to appoint an American cardinal, but that at the next he will make such an appointment. DON'T RISK A PENNY. GET WELL FIRST. For 30 years I've been a physician! I have treated nearly two million eases! Surely you'll admit that such ex perience must have taught me some Certainties. And—all that I know of disease and cure—all that I have proven to be worth knowing—is condensed Into my six books for the Sick. Write for a free copy today. They tell of my great discovery that practically all diseases can be permanently cured through the Sym pathetic Nerves. Not the nerves we feel with, see with, hear with, but the Inside nerves. It is these that unconsciously oper nte the vital Organs—the Heart, Liver. Kidneys. Brain, etc. When the Inside nerves get run down, that Organ which Is weakest In the body loses its power to act properly. It then throws Its work upon the other Organs. These Organs In turn become af fected through overwork, and so. scarcely any case Is found without complications. I proved It useless to doctor the Individual Organs themselves while the Nerve-power to fully operate them was lacking. Sedatives temporarily deadened the pain, but increased tho distress after wards. Tonics revived the drooping pow ers, only to Insure relapse so soon as the stimulus was withdrawn. Of what use to hourly move ahead •.he hands of a watch if Its main spring be seriously weakened? There Is but one sensible thing to do. vis—stiffen up the mainspring. That is what my. now famous, pre scription—Dr. Bhoop's Restorative— does. It acts directly upon the Sympa thetic Nerve Centers just as steam acts in an Engine. It provides, through these inside nerves, the power to make the weak est organ do Its duty. It enables weak organs to cast off their clogging waste matter, and to repair their worn tissues. It runs the human mill, at full ca pacity, till that mill produces enough new material to keep itself running without further help. So sum am I of this Restorative that I authorize certain Druggists everywhere to supply It on a month's trial to practically all who write me for that privilege. To supply It at my expense If It fails to benefit—at your expense If It cures. The cost Is but $6.!>0 for six bottles, including my professional help dur ing treatment. Could anything better prove my faith In this system, than this volun tary teat? Could anyone furnish you better grounds for confidence? You should get my book, which tells how to cure diseases permanently. Write for it today—now—you can't get well too soon. Just specify which of the six you need. Book 1 on Dyspepsia. Book 2 on the Heart. Book S on the Kidneys. Book 4 for Women. Book 5 for Men (sealed). Book S on Rheumatism. Address Dr. Bhoop Box 8622. Ra- Clne. Wis. P.

Tho Irrigation commission, recently appointed by Governor Mcßrlde, has been summoned to meet In North Yakima next Wednesday, March 9. Charles P. Dund of Spokane Is a mem ber of the commission. The purpose of the formation of the commission is to investigate the irrigation needs of the Btato of Wash ington and draft a law which will cover the requirements. At the last session of the state legislature one of the most difficult bills to frame was the irrigation law and it Is now far from satisfactory either to the various Irrigation enterprises of the state or to the national government, which desires to assist in Irrigation matters In the different states. The commission will attempt to draft a bill which will more adequate ly cover the situation than any of the laws now on the statute books of the state. OLIVER GETS JUDGMENT. F. H.

I BEAD IT THROUGH. r'Twonld Spoil This Story to Tell It | In the Headlines. To use an eighteenth century phrase, this is an "o'er true tale." I laving happened In a. small Virginia own In the winter of 1902, It Is a itory very much of the present. Up to a short time ago Mrs. John K. Harmon, of .Melfu Station Va., had no personal knowledge of tlie rare curative properties of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.

CITY WANTS IN ON THE GRAFT LTBTEBIOPB BLOT KACNENE BILL WXTCH ALMOST CAUSED a. non Ear otty council MEBELT A SCHEME TO ENABLE THE OTTT TO COLLECT MONTH LY PINES. The slot-machine ordinance, which nearly caused a fight in the city coun cil TuesdajTnight, was, it seems, drawn up, at the request of Mayor Boyd, by Assistant Corporation Counsel Connor. There are state laws providing for the regulation of the machines. The running of money machines is strictly prohibited, but machines which pay merchandise are allowed to run by paying of a fine of from $10 to $20. Obtain Revenue. It is tlie desire of tlio mayor to make this a city provision so that the revenue of tlie municipality may be increased by a system of fines on the machines. The councilmen evidently did not have their proper bearing on the but; hence the trouble. Some of the councilmen, fearing it was a blow at the slot machines, were afraid of tho ordinance and, not knowing what else to do, referral it to Mr. Hand. When it comes up again it will be given more respect. THE SURE WAT to prevent Pneumonia nnd Consump tion Is to cure your cold when it first appears.
