yhy ths Floral Tribute from Ex-Cenfder-ates
Was Rejected.
Columbus, O , June 4. The G. A.
"g,post8 of Columbus reeeivsd con
jgrable notoriety lust week cn
gfcount f baviag refused to rtesive
iflaral tribute from ex Confederates
0f the South to plaee on Union
naves her- The floral committee,
which rejected the emblem, have
prepared a statement, ezplaiaing the
aatUr. The report Bays:
'The committee fesls that it is
ju the members f the Grand Army
0 Columbus that they give the rea
ion for rejecting the emblem. The
pargon in whose mind the design of
tbat emblem originated, has by his
lUUmects placed the committee in
i fall attitude so far as rejecting
the emblem ia concerned.
' "The chairman, in accepting the
wreath, did not know what entered
into the formatiea of the emblem.
When it was learned that the design
contained the emblem of the Ameri
can flag, supported by an arm cloth
ed ia the Confederate gray above
and an arm clothed in blue beneath,
aaoy member of the Grand Army
of the Repuolio entered their pro
tests against the plaoing of the em
blem upon the mound, in language
that could not be misunderstood. In
regard to the objectionable features
1 of the emblem, the gray arm being
placed, not only above the blue, but
on the emblem at all, was the only
objection to accepting the emblem.1'

Re fern to CaptaiQ Jehnsoa.
A Bpecial correspondent writing
from Martinsville, Ind., to the Ham
ilton county, Ind , Ledger makes the
following reference to Capt. John
son, now undergoing treatruetit at
the Sanitarium at that place:
"Lyiog upon hia back in this
hotel is a young captain of tbe
Spanish-American war. By his 6ide
is his constant, devoted young wife,
who ia nursing him from a!ajost
death's door back to life again.
There is something touching and
worthy of admiration iu the &tory of
this couple. The young man was
captain of a company of Missouri
volunteer. Hia regiment was located
at Chickamauga and afterwards
moved to Lexington, Ky. List Sep
tember while in camp there the Cap
tain was drenched by a heavy rain.
He caught cold and rheumatism fol
lowed. He was a man of fine form
and bad passed the best physical ex
amination of any man in his regi
ment. But this availed him nothing
against the dread disease and he
was thoroughly in its clutches. Death
seemed inevitable. His parents and
sweetheart, to whom he had been
engagad for some time, were notified
of his serious condition and went to
his bedside Tho young girl, in
order to give her betrothed better
seavice as a nurse, thought it best
to become his wife. A license was
secured and they were married. TTrom
that hour to this she has been con
stantly at his side and given him
every attention possible. The dec
tor tells me tbat he was almost a
skeleton when brought here in Feb
ruary and stiff in nearly every joint.
He is now able to use one arm and
the doctor thinks he will be on his
feet in two months. Such suffering
and trials are the legitimate fruits of
war. But nations are built and civ
ilization advanced by suo h saeri
fices." Beats the Klondike.
Mr. A. C. Thomas, of Marysville,
Tex , has found a more valuable dis
covery than has yet been made in
the Klondike. For years he suffered
untold agony from consumption, ac
companied by hemorrhages; and was
absolutely cured by Dr. King's New
Discovery for consumption, coughs
and colds. He declares that gold is
of little value in comparison with
this marvelous cure; would have it,
even if it cost a hundred dollars a
bottle. Asthma, Bronchitis and all
throat and lung affections are poti
tively cured by Dr. King's New Dis
covery for consumption. Trial bot

Strike Situation at Rich mil.
The coal miner' strike at Rich
Hill has not yet assumed serious
proportions. Some have quit but
the large majority of miners remain
at work. Monday afternoon two
meetings of the miners were held,
one at the opera house and the other
in the park.
Tbe meeting at the opsra house
was held at the instigation of Sapt.
W. B Williams, who desired to
aseriain the wishes of the minerB
under Lis jurisdiction. At this meet
ing Amos Manchester was made
chairman, and Henry G. Meyers
secretary. After speech making by a
number of miners present, a motion
was made to submit the following
demands to the company:
First, That a uniform price of 50o
and 5oc per ton be paid the miners
the year round 50o for coal 3 feet
9 inehea and over, and 55o for coal
under that height; second, that the
company pay every two weeks; third,
the rails be brought within reason
able distance of the face. A motion
was also carried to present a griev
ance of the drivers and day men in
regard to a nine hour day. At the
meeting no reference was made to
The first of tbe week indications
were that there would b9 trouble in
the mining district and Sheriff Mudd
was petitioned by the mine opera
tors to be present. The Sheriff re
sponded to the call, but so far there
has been no need for his services.
There are about 200 miners out,
and the matter f a strike appears
to hinge almost entirely upon the
action taken by the miners at No.

Is tt Malaria or Alum?
Popular Scientific MontUly.
Languor, loss of eppetite, indiges
tion and often feverishness are the
common symptoms of a physiologi
cal condition termed "malaria." All
these symptoms may be and fre
quently are the effects ef the use of
alum baking powders in food mak
ing. There is no question about
the poisonous effects of alum upon
the system. It obstructs digestion,
prostrates the nerves, coagulates
and devitalizes the blood. All this
has been made clear, thanks to phy
sicians, board of health, and food
commissioners. So "highly injurious
to the health of the community"
does the eminent head of the uni
versity of Pennsylvania, Dr. Barker,
consider the alum baking powders
that ho says their sale should be
"prohibited by law."
Under these circumstances it is
worth the while of every housswifo
to employ the very little card thai is
necessary to keep eo dangerous an
element from the food of htr family.
A pure cream of tarter baking
powder, which is the only kind that
should be used, ought to cost about
forty-five to fifty eents a pound.
Therefore, if you are pajiag much
less, something is wrong; if you are
paying twenty five cents or less per
pound, the powder i3 certainly made
from alum.

Street Incident.
"My Dear Sir,'' exclaimed Lawyer
Bartholomew Livingston, meeting
tho Rev. Dr. Archibald Windham on
the village 6treet, "what does this
meat? I thought you were laid up
with all sorts of bsd disease:"
"And eo I wa8," replied tbe rever

indigestion and from that time on
my wbrl9 BjEteui has been in a dis

"This same medicine cured my wife
of rheumatism and my little girl of

best medicine money can buy, they

The Butler Record prints the
speech of George H. McKissick, de
livered at the close of the public
schools there recently, he being one
of the graduates. The young man
shows acquaintance with current
affairs, and in his talk, taking the
Monroe doctrine for a oasis, emites
expansion hip and thigh and lays
bare the false and cruel work of the
republican administration in its deal
ings with the Cubans and Filipinos.
The young man shows he is an
honor to his raising and the Clay
county stock from which he sprung
and we regret that lack of space pre
vents our giving his speech in full.
Another brother, Edward, graduated
at the same time. Both are sens of
our esteemed friend, J. J. McKis
sick, who formerly resided in
Faubion Chapel neighborhood, and
one of tho best men that ever lived
in the county. Liberty Advance.
