AMERICUS, GA., OCT. 25, 1900 If Mark Hanna really thinks he is an orator let him keep at it. If he doesn’t make votes for McKinley he’ll make some for Bryan. The Georgia law makers convened yesterday. No one, no, not eyen our Father in Heaven knoweth what they intend to do, or will do. The Standard Oil Company has just bought up another competing tank line. But there can be no monopoly in this country—the law doesn’t allow it! It is gratifying to find that Lieuten ant Hobson can again travel in this country with comparative safety—a moustache must be an inflammatory sort of ornament after all. The loss in wages to the coal miners on account of the strike is estimated at 15,900,000; loss to railroad employes, $65,000,000; cost of State troops, $35,- 000; lives lost 6; persons injured, 40. Another powerful Bryan recruit is Judson Harmon, Attorney General m the Cleveland Cabinet, and one of the ablest and best-known lawyers in the Middle West. The band wagon is get "’trhff comfortably filled. In China the idols are often put to a good use by the people, who make saving banks of their hollow bodies. As the idol is sacred the money is safe from robbers, wherein their robbers differ very much from ours. It is understood that if McKinley is reelected the trade for the Danish West Indies will be quickly closed. It will . be necessary to create some new offices to accommodate new office seekers m the event of a second Bill McKinley success. Russia is said to be desperately hard up for money and is trying to make another borrow in the United States. The Russian government ought to take a tip from Hanna and encourage a few trusts that could always be touched m an emergency. The democrats everywhere should particularly look after the congress ional districts. If Mr. Bryan should be defeated a democratic house might save the country. In fact, the con gressional elections were never of more * importance than now, whether Mr. Bryan wins or loses. The death of John Sherman removes one of the formost and ablest states one will and when he thought he was right nothing could scare him from his line of duty. He was a man of the old school, honest and ever true to the American Republic which had so often honored him. Hanna is said to be laying his plans to receive the nomination in 1904, but The Chicago Chronicle argues that if the Republican ticrfet succeeds in the present caanpaigYTMark will be ineli ■Mdble,b<j£ftTfse he will already have been HMfSident two terms. That is hard on HKcKinley, but there are not a few in the country who regard Hanna as the real President, Gen. Fitzhugh Lee talks rathe 1 gloomily of the possibility of eradicat ing yellow fever from Cuba. He says the disease is worse this winter than he has ever known it, and is not as form erly confined to small, narrow streets and places lacking in sanitation. Fifty cases were in the vicinity of his head quarters when he went away. The sanitation, he says, is first-class in all places where the disease is raging and has been for months, but the doctors are beginning to say there is nothing in sanitation after all. There must be something m sanitation, and of course, it will not be stopped whether it affects yellow fever or not. The Gulf cities will never be safe until yellow fever is driven out of Cuba.

In his speech in Brooklyn some days ago Mr. Hill said . “I make no apol ’ ogy to anyone for my activity in this campaign. It is sufficient that some leading principles m which a citizen believes are advocated by the party with which he is associated to justify ) his support of that party regardless ) of its attitude on subordinate questions ) which he may or may not approve.” ) And Mr. Hill is not called upon to s make an apology for his course. When the safety of the State is imperiled all other differences should sink into in significance. He is a poor sort of I patriot who places personal interests or individual prejudice above the safe ’ ty of the Republic and abstains from doing what his conscience tells him is the right thing to do. The issues in volved in this campaign are more mo s mentous than any the people of this country have ever been called upon to decide and the citizen, especially the t Southern citizen, who sulks at this j crisis, who fails to cast his vote for Mr. ; Bryan and Democratic candidate for t Congress in his district, is not only basely recreant to his party but to his country as well. - HOW FRENCHMEN CAST THEIR i BALLOTS t 3 In France voting is by ballot. The persons who help in receiving and counting the vote are volunteers drawn * from the ranks of the electors. Prior r to the opening of the poll at each sta- ■ tion the presiding officer unlocks the turn provided for the reception of the t votes and satisfies those present that it is empty. He then locks it again, s places the key in his pocket and hands a duplicate to one of his helpers, who are termed assessors. The poll is open - from 8 in the morning until 6 at night, 3 and at the close the votes are counted i on the spot by the volunteer helpers. , The result is then forwarded to the central bureau.—London Daily Mail. j Are there but twenty-nine great I Americans? The committee of experts were asked to name fifty, yet could _ only find twenty-nine. Another vote will be taken in two years when maybe some one may remember Edgar Allan i Poe, the most unique genius, most striking individuality, in American lit j erature: and Andrew Jackson, the j most forcible man of his day, who left - his impress more indelibly on his coun try than any of the statesmen who were his contemporaries, unless Web- > ster be excepted, and who was the first 5 soldier of the time, and one of the im- ■ mortals secure on “Fame’s eternal > camping grounds.” In the meanwhile Americans might use some of their spare time studying what real great ness is, and which of their countrymen 1 who have preceded them are entitled to be termed great. I 1 The New York Times is stirred to 1 anger because the programmes on the New York theaters are all Bryan docu ments, It is right in one respect, [ at least. Why should theater pro ( grammes be used for advertising pur poses? There is a place and a time for ( all things. The place tor bringing r buyers and sellers together is in news t papers that all read, not on theater pro grammes, bill boards and front end of street cars. I That once brilliant genius, Oscar 1 Wilde, is said to be now one of the t most pitiable objects in the world. He ■ is living in Pans, practically destitute » and almost helpless. Lately he has been kept from starvation only by the charity- of former admirers. A few days ago he was taken to a hospital, ’ from which, in all probability, he will not emerge alive. f ’ While England has been engagedin ’ the work of conquering the Boers half 1 a million of her subjects in India have ’ perished from starvation. BABY FOODS i It is clear that doctors and mothers think more of special foods than they used to. The reasons are: (i) both i mothers and babies live less naturally than they used to; (2) mother’s milk is not so plenty, and not so good, as it used to be; (3) Scott’s emul sion of cod-liver oil is mother food as well as baby food —enables the mother to feed her baby naturally.
