:- It has developed that Mr.
Bryan' lielicves in lectures for
revenue only.
Some enterprising novelist
should write a 8tory and call it
"Cuba Libre."
No other two things hurt,
Missouri's name abroad like its
lynchings and its cJ .oons.
The fact is, Cuba is too close
to the United States to be longer
used as a Spanish slaughter pen.
Since 1900 will not be a
leap year, perhaps the Tillmaus
will not jump ac conclusions in
that year of grace.
"While Spain is brutally re

something must serve for an issue
in 1900.
Progressive Chinamen have
inaugurated a reform to quit
squeezing the feet of women. This
sounds lika a hint of the higher
education of those fellows.
It may be that Lilioukalani

The recent addition of a
young folks' department to Frank
Leslie's popular Monthly Maga

than ever the great family maga

to do so at any time.
Doubtless those American
volunteers for Cuba understand
Cleveland's notion of waiting
awhile before interfering is like
the Irishman's idea that he would
have to wear his shoes a time be
fore he could put them on.
The Courier-Journal rej
marks that there is a general opin
ion that trusts ought to be put
down, but adds that the idea pre
vails that somebody els-e ought to
do the work. The Kentucky jour
nal should not borrow trouble.
"Somebody else," not given to the
Cleveland Bin of procrastination,

grown reconciled to the yanking

Dressing the Store Window.
Tu some lines of business the
store window has its daily dress
ing It is made attractive by its
changes. So important a matter
has become both in a commercial
and spectacular sense, that it is
cultivated as an art, and recog
nized as a special fcatuie in the
promotion of trade. A store win
dow is or ought to be a cameo, in
which we have an artistic group
ing of what is offered for sale on
the counters behind the picture.
Where this rule is observed, the
eye of the public is attracted and
its patronage not only invited, but
generally secured. Here you find
the crowd without and
also the
crowd within. The clerk a
busy. The hum of business is
heard, and the cashier is in no
danger of taking a nap as the
cash goes through his fingers On
the other hand, a window that has
no new picture behind its glass
fails to arrest attention, and if it
does, it is simply to leave a bad
impression on the mind of the
passing critic. It is like an un
washed face on Sunday morning,
or a collar that Knows more of
dirt than soap. It is slovenly and
forbidding, and if trade prospers
under such conditions, it is as
novel as a; poke-bonnet would be
on the moon, or a third eye in a
calf or a baby. It is needless to
sav that such instances are to be
found in every city, town, and
hamlet The neglected window
has a stale and invalid appearance.
The same old sad-iron stauds in
the corner with a suggestion of
real estate on its sombre counte
nance. A coal hod finds a fixed
abode where the spider weaves a
web for flies on a lounging buck
saw. A stray hammer and an
imprisoned axe divided a forlorn
situation with an auger and a
gimlet, that have been mutual
friends for months. A sleigh bell
has the same position in summer
as in winter, and an ice cream
freezer looks out on the street in
December as it did in June. The
idea of exhibiting goods according
to the seasons has never invaded
the petrified exhibit. The same
old stove does duty when the
world is perspiring as it did when
men were wearing ear laps, and
the pair of skates that might have
attracted a longing look when the
ice was three feet deep in the
river have still the same cold
smile for the passer by when tin
summer fly is being roasted on
the window pane. Now there is
no reason why this abnormity
should ex-.st, unless it be in the
misfortune of the dealer being
born tired, or the clerk objecting
to soil his digits. In the hardware
trade as in all others demand has
its seasons, and there is certainly
no lack of material in a hardware
store wherewith to make a kaleido
scope of its window. There can
be no doubt that a little more at
tention to window dressing ac-.
cording to the seasons would do
much to hlod trade when under
different conditions it has a strug
gle to evade the sheriff. Any how
it remains a fact, that were a store
window is neglected, and its ex
hibit has the unchanging face of a
stone dog, it might as well draw
down the blinds or close the shut
ters. Perhaps Mark Hauna could
manage to keep vessels like the
Texas from "going down." This
is not a suggestion that he put at
the head of the navy department,
however, as it may be more to the
country's interest to let him play
the magician on the what market
all the time
The troubles in Cuba and
the Philippines indicate that Span
ish oppression is not affected by
latitude or longitude. The dist
ance the latter islands are from
this country effectually refute the
claim that Yankee filibustering is
alone responsible for the discon
tent in Cuba.

The Han With a Broken Neck.
William H. Lewis, of Buxton,
Kansas, was in Kirksville Tues
day, and is one of the only two
men on earth who survives a
broken neck. Mr. Lewis was born
in Adams county, 111 , May 1,
1859. He is in fairly good health,
and is mentally bright. He is
ever cheerful, and tells the follow
ing story of the accident that
broke his neck, and wi.ich he sur
vives to the surprise of every sur
geon that has examined him.
On July 12, JS91, Mr. Lewis in
company with his affianced bride
and a party of excursionists were
spending a few hours at White
Fish Lake, Montana. Target
practice was among the amuse
ments indulged in. While hand
ling a revolver it was aeoidently
discharged by the young lady, the
ball striking Mr. Lewis on the
right side of the chiu and passing
through the neck, shattering a
portion of the vertebrae. The
spinal cord was not severed, but
the shock was great enough to
produce partial paialysis. After
the accident Mr. Lewis was treated
by the best surgeons in the coun
try, and his case excited a national
interest among the medical frater
nity. A Chicago surgeon has suc
ceeded in patching him up. and
prolonging his life. He visited
the Still Infirmary Tuesday and
thinks Osteopatic treatment will
benefit him. He will begin treat
ment on his return from Buxton,
Kansas, for which place he dt
parted Tuesday morning.
A New Book, "Knitting and
Crocheting,' of G4 pages, over 50
original designs illustrated beau
tiful lace patterns, .snawls, hoods,
jackets, etc., has been published

The New Year's number of the

ly interesting one, even for that
always up-to-date publication. It
exhibits a charming array of
fashionable winter toilets for la
dies, misses aud little folks, also
the latest designs in millinery and
neckwear. The contents of the
book, outside the fashion depart
ments, are well worth noting;

the illustrations. The lovers of
flowers will be particularly in
terested in a seasonable a tide on
this subject, and the latest inven
tions in bicyle accessories should

The New Drugless Science.
A new institution for the al
leviation of the suffeiing of the
human family. From time to
time there has appeared in The
News, brief bits of info matiou
concerning the new Osteopathic
tieatment. Being desirous to
learn more of this new drugless
science a representative called at
the "Rocky Monntain Osteopathic
Infirmary," located in" Rooms 1,
2, 3, 4, and 5 of the fourth of the
Kittredge building and made the
acquaintance of W. L. Harlan,
the head of the abovo institution.
We found Dr. Harlan one of
the busiest men in Denver, and
o'nly by persistent effort did we
succeed iu accomplishing our pur
pose. In reply to the question, "What
is Osteopathy!" Dr. Harlan said,
"Osteopathy is a scientific method
of treating diseases of the human
body without the aid of drugs or
medicines oi any kind. It de
pends for its results upon the
thorough knowledge of the princi
ples of anatomy and physiology,
and an advanced interpretation of
the laws of human life. It may
be defined as a correct adjustment
of the bones of the body and their
attachments, and through them
the other parts of the body, in
order that all may perform their
functions in harmony and give
freedom of action to all fluids or
substances pertaining to life. The
Osteopath is taught to look upon
the human body as a finely con
structed machine built to perforin
a certain work for a given length
of time. Should any pare of the
machine be thrown out of adjust
ment, it will have its effect upon
the other parts and in time will
result in its entire stoppage. The
dislocation of a bone, the contrac
tion of a muscle, the shutting off
of an artery or vein, will cause a
large numberof so-called diseases,
to the abatement of which number
less remedies have been applied.
The science was discovered by
Dr. A. T. Still, of Kirksville, Mo.,
who found that the great majority
of diseases were caused by some
dislocation in the human body,
and who named his new discovery
"Osteop ithy."
We found that, before accepting
a case it was necessary to undergo
a thorough examination in order
to locate the cause of the trouble
and then proceed to remove it.
Dr. Harlan does not claim to
cure all, but a record of the res
kept shows a remarkably large
per cent of cures, and in view of
the fact that the great majority of
ihe cases haudled by him have
tried all known ''remedies" and
failed, and come to him as a last
resort. The records shows that
in cases of asthma, bronchitis, fe
male diseases, goitre, hip diseases
rheumatism, spinal curvatures,
diseases of the eyes, epilepsy,
heart diseasej paralysis, catarrh
and that from Go to 75 per cent
are eured and 90 per cent greatly
and permanently benefitted. Those
suffering from weak backs and dis
eases arising therefrom, find his
treatment a priceless boon. Dr.
Harlan has many voluntary testi
monials from some of Denver's
best people, showing what this
wonderful science has done. Dr.
Harlan was inclined to be reticent
as to his personal work in this
city saying he preferred to let his
patients tell their own story. But
judging from the practice he has,
which has been built up in less
than one year, it will not be many
years until "Orteopathy" and the
Rocky Mountain Infirmary will be
a household word. Denver (Col.)
