The "Passive Resisters." A struggle of unusual Interest to Americans is going on In England. It is indeed a repetition, in a passive way, of the struggle of our forefathers against the injustice of the administration of George Ut, More than 100,000 English citizens are leagued together In resisting the payment of school taxes which the government has levied. In essence, the movement is a revolution. The money collected by means of the school tax in England is being ased to teach the creed of the established church. The "Passive Resistors" justly claim that money collected by the state for school purposes should not be used for sectarian purposes. The 'Passive Resistors" simply refuse to pay the tax. Served with summonses to compel payment, they permit their household goods to be levied upon and sold. The furniture of several hundred of the resislers has been seized and sold to pay tho tax. What will be the outcome? The obnoxious law will be repealed. The law Is contrary to the institutions and traditions of the English people and to the spirit of the times. It Is impossible in a free country like England to consistently enforce a law contrary to public opinion. The government has legislated where it can not administer. In Yankee phraseology, it has "bit off more than it can chew." If the "Passive Resistors" remain firm the government will give way. RASMUS HERE IV Henry Rasmus, the successor of Dr. Ijimbert at the First M. B. church, arrived in the city this morning from Chicago. Dr. Rasmus and Dr. Lambert exchanged pulpits. Dr. Rasmus will asume control of the church at once and will preach his first sermon on Easter Sunday. He re ports a delightful trip across the con tinent anil seems glad to be back in Spokane. His family, consisting of his wife, three girls and a boy, accom panied him. THERE IS ROOM FOR ALL IN HEAVEN And he measured the city with the reed, 12,000 furlongs. The length and the breadth and tlie height of it are equal—Rev. xxt:l6. Twelve thousand furlongs are 7.920,000 feet, which being cubed are 496,793,088,000,000,000,000 cubic feet. Reserving half of this for the throne of God and half the balance for streets, leaves a remainder of 124,198,272,000,000,000,000 cubic feet. Divide this by 4096. the cubic feet In a room 16 feet square, and there Will be 30,321.843,750,000,000 rooms. Suppose the world always did and always will contain 990,000,000 Inhab itants and that a generation lasts S3 1-3 years, making 2,970,000,000 peo ple every century, and that the world DON'T RISK A PENNY. GET WILL FIRST. ■ For 30 years I've been a physician! I have treated nearly two million cases! 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—ls 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 la these that unconsciously oper ate 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, hut increased the distress after wards. Tonics revived the drooping pow ers, only to insure relapse so soon as tlie stimulus was withdrawn. Of what use to hourly move ahead the hands of a watch if Its main spring he seriously weakened? There Is but one sensible thing to do, viz: stiffen up the mainspring. That is what my now famous pre scription—Dr. Shuop'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 oft" 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 sure am I of this Restorative that I uuthorlze certain Druggists everywhere to supply it on n month's trial, to practically all who write me for that privilege. To supply it at my expense If it falls to benefit—at your expense if it cures. 't he cost Is but 15.50 for six bottles. Including my professional help during treatment. Could anything bettor prove my faith in this system than this volun tary test? Could anyone furnish you better grounds for confidence? You should get my book, which tells glow to cure diseases permanently. Write for It today—now—you can't get well too soon. Just specify which of the six you Heed. P. 8.-.—Simple cases often vleld to one bottle of Restorative. All drug gists Carry it. But all druggists do not supply it bn a month's trial. You must write go me for that. Simply state which book you want Mid address Dr. Shoop, Box 8522, Ra tine Wla. Book 1 on Dyspepsia. Book 2 on the Heart. Book 8 on tho Kidneys. Book 4 for Women. Book t for Men (sealed).

Then suppose there were 100 worlds equal to this in number of in habitants and duration of years, mak ing a total of 297,000,000,000,000 per sons. There would be more than 100 rooms 16 feet square for each person. TWO MEALS A DAY AND NO PICKLES ST. PAUL, March 31.—Two meals per day and no pickles. This is the latest form of dietic exercise of the students of the Univer sity of Minnesota. It is all the fault of a professor from an eastern university who was invited to ehu|>el one morning to address the students. He said that breakfast and supper, if partaken of properly, were all that was necessary for a student. If the food was well cooked and wholesome, two meals were just the thing to keep student brains ready for exams. v Then came another statement crit ical in its results. ''I don't approve of the fudge and pickle idea," said the prof. He had evidently heard of the "pickle and fudge" spreads at sorority houses. "You ought to give up both luxuries, but at least one. The opposite! do not mingle well," said the professor. Then the girls began to debate which one to give up, and after much discus sion it was voted to put the ban on the pickles. Already the university restaurants and boarding houses have begun to feel the effects of the two-meal pen day theory. GRAVE WAS FULL OF GOLD COINS GUADALAJARA, Mex.. March 31. —While the school teacher on the Cuisillos hacienda, a big estate 30 miles from here, was hearing the lessons of a class in an ancient church, now used as the school house, the tiling beneath his chair gave way and he pas precip itated into an old grave. In the dust of the grave were found Spanish gold pieces to the value of about $50,000. The estate was originally a royal grant to a Spanish marquis, und it is recorded that he was buried beneath the old church. There is no explana tion of the gold in the grave except that in life the marquis was a very eccentric person. The grave was cemented over, under the floor of the church, and the cement after many generations, gave way under the weight of the school teacher. The Cuisillos hacienda is now the property of Senor Juan Goftaxar, of this city. The Gortazar family is very wealthy and the Spanish gold will be given over to charity.

He is charged with stealing a horse from the Mullen ranch about a month ago. Schemers is believed by tlie officers to be mixed up in more than one horse stealing deal. Two men, John Forres ter and Frank Wilson, were arrested for the theft of tho horse from Mullen's ranch, while Robert Snlain was held to answer to the charge of receiving stolen property. These men were all released on March i hy Justice Blocker. It was thought then that a negro, Barrows, who is now In custody, and Schemers were the real theives. The pinto horse, which Schemers is accused of having stolen, was traded to a Mr. Carroll and the ins and outs of the horse deal Were decidedly mixed when the matter came before Justice Stockcr. BEAD XT TKBOU3H. I 'Twould Spoil This Story to Tell tt In the Headlines. To use an eighteenth century phrase, this is an "o'er true tale." Having happened In a small Virginia town In the winter of 1902. It Is a story very much of the present. Up to a short time ago Mrs. John E. Harmon of Melfa Station. Va., had no personal knowledge of the rare curative properties of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. "Last January." she says, "my baby took a dreadful cold and at one time I feared she would have pneumonia, but one of my neigh bors told me how this remedy had cured her little boy and I began giv ing it to my baby at once and it soon cured her. I heartily thank the manu facturers of Chamberlain's Cough ! Remedy for placing so great a cure within my reach. I can not recom mend It too highly or say too much In Its favor. I hope all who read this will try It and be convinced as I was." For sale by all druggists. JAP WIDOWS All TOLD BT THEIR COIFrURE.

Many theatrical managers and people who have seen her on the stage may not know It, but It is so officially de creed by no less worthy a body than the trustees of the United Presby terian church. • Mrs. Nation wanted to deliver a temperance lecture In a church here and permission was refused because the deacons decided that she Is a member of the giddy guild of actresses. Poor Carrie, on the stage she is no actress and oft the stage she is one! WELL AGAIN.

T., March Sl.—ln the Indian Territory they bore down ward for oil, gas, coal, asphalt and other natural riches, and they bore upward for whisky. It is the newest way of getting' something for nothing and for dodg ing the federal prohibition laws, com pared to which for strictness the Dra conian lawns were polite requests. Three local Indian youths devised the schema, and had their thirsts boon equal to their ingenuity all would have gone well. Eying on their backs under a boxcar of whisky in transmission to Arkansas they bored a hole up through the six-Inch floor and the bottom of a cask. Down came a stream of golden fluid. But as they took turns at the improvised bunghole. some drops of whisky ran to the ground and proved ' their undoing. A federal deputy marshal, passing through the freight yards half a block away—true to his reputation— caught a whiff of tlie liquor and In vestigated. The youths are in Jail, but the railroads may have to use steel tank cars henceforth. WITH THE FIGHTERS (By Jimmy Culllas.)
