SHAW'S SILLY WAIL
SECRETARY REPRE8ENT8 DIS
CREDITED SCHOOL OF ECO
NOMICS. Would Have All Nations Buy from
U, But Sell Us Nothing Alti
tude Typical of tha
Secretary Shaw lias little mora
itlmu to serve an Hocretnry of the
trcasuiy In which to urpe IiIb pe
culiar and Ronrrully harmful Iduus
on those wIIIIiir to listen to him. As
'soon as ho retires to private life he
will be an harmless as a rurklns
.tlove or a rtioinK pl(?eon. Hut while
'he Is Heeretary or tho treasury ha
'Is certain of an aiiilienee to some ex
tent, so hia utterances have to lie
noticed, and when likely to do harm,
criticised. In a speech nt the com
mercial cmmicKB at Kansas City he
expressed his anxiety lest while wo
delay In pottiriK access to expanding
forelKii markets our surplus of jviorl
;ucts will "not hack upon us like a be
lated tide to tho inundation and
WampUm of our prosperity which if
now cur boast."
Dread of plenty and a reduction of
trust birth prices seems to welch upon
'the heart of Shaw, for his only Idea is
to pet rid of our products by export
Iiir them. He cannot see that reduced
(prices will lead to greater home con
sumption. Shaw In his economic cog
itations ban no place for lniorts, ho
wants tho pauper of Kuropo to buy,
but thinks It is Impertinence for him
to sell to lis. Hut fortunately the
Shaw Hchool of economics is scorned
.by the world's traders, and recipro
city of trade Is a necessity, except
for such raw products ns are needed,
that are not natural products of the
importing nation or that are not
raised In Bufllclent quantity to supply
the home necessities Those neces
sities, like cotton, corn and whent,
must he bounht by the nation need
ing them, and protective tariffs play
but little part In their general world
The Shaw cry Is export! expor. !
but he would prevent imports, lie
pays no attention to the fact that
KiiKland, the greatest trailing tialion,
Is always importing more than alio
Is exporting, and has become the
richest country In the world by the
profits of this trade. No tariff wall Is
raised by her to prevent free Ingress
or egress of goods or persons ex
cept a low tariff on a few urtieles for
revenue purposes. The Shaw school,
who have not yet passed through the
kindergarten stage of political econ
omy, would raise our tariff wall still
higher by the Imposition of maximum
.rates of tariff duties to force other
nations to lower their barriers ugalnst
Show would consider a tariff for
revenue, which would vastly Increase
our foreign trade, a device of tho evil
tine. For our people to bo nolo to
buy cheap woolen goods Instead of
mercerized cotton and shoddy from
the tariff-protected woolen trust would
bo ruinous to producers and consum
ers nllko according to the perverted
theories of Shaw. To allow Iron an J
'steel nnd tools and agricultural Im
plements and building material to he
Imported under reduced duties would
Btrike down the profits of those gigan
tic corporations, the steel trust, the.
harvester trust and the lumber trust,
so that their magnates would be un
able, without a measuro of self sacri
fice, to respond to the call of Hie Re
publican campaign fund collector for
boodle- to save the country and "the
party." The specter of gaunt hunger
of tho corporations, if the spoils of
;tho trusts are reduced by tariff revis
ion, haunts the waking and sleeping
noments of trust guardians, such as
Shaw, when they think of what the
wicked Democrats would do to "the
great protected Interests of tho coun
try" If Installed In power. Tho sugar
trust would dissolve and its luscious
contributions would no longer sweeten
tho path of the politicians, hut It
would bo sweeter to tho peoplo In tho
'form of cheaper sugar. Tho Standard
OW trust, which Shaw erroneously
ihas declared Is not protected by the
tariff, would find Its enormous divi
dends of 40 per cent, go up in smoke
as sweet Incense, to those who have
icompelled Its profits to bo reasonable
instead of to bo plundered by it.
And so the list of trusts might be
gone over and tho Shaw heart riven
by the talcs of woe of trust magnates
nnd Republican leaders alike, of tho
evil days that will succeed the fat
and prosperous years for the pro
tected trusts. Tho standpatters mny
stand aghast at our surplus of prod
ucts, but tho consumers will regard
such plenty with equanimity as tho
club that will beat down monopoly.
So It comes to this, the Republican
party has created conditions that they
fear to face, for the tariff taxed peo
ple are unable to pay high trust prices
for more goods than "they are now
consuming and foreign nations have
-raised a rival tariff wall against our
surplus products. To reform the tariff
would result in reducing trust profits
and not to revise the tariff will pre
vent our "getting access to expanding
What a dilemma for the standpat
ters. It never seems to occur to th?e
worshipers of protectionism that to
lower the tariff will reduce prices and
thus allow millions of our people to
buy more. They prate of "our home
market," but the result of the trust
fostering tariff Is to limit consump
tion by high prices and the surplus
created by the promise of enormous
profits is becoming a menace to the
eystora they bare built tip.

HEAD8 SHAPED TO ORDER.
German Doctor Explains Causes of
At a recent convention of Oerman
naturalists and doctors Dr. Watcher,
of Stuttgart, in an Instructive paper
put forth a sensational theory to ex
plain tho formation of the shnpo of
the head of Infants. He maintained
that the head of a child could he
molded artificially. He found by ex
perience that when a medium-shaped
head Is placed In a soft cushion the
child turns on Its buck, or reBts oa the
back of Its bead, In order to free
mouth, noso and face. In this manner
the head rests smoothly, and a short
bead Is developed. Tint It the medium
shaped head of a child Is placed on a
hard under-rert, Ilka a hair mnttress
or rolled carpot, tho child's head
turns aside, as It cannot stand any
more on Its head than an egg, for the
muscle of the back Is weakened.
Therefore, with continued resting on
the side a long head Is developed. To
prove hlB assertions tho lecturer pre
sented a child whoso mother and sis
ter are short-beaded. Tho child at Its
birth had a short head, now after 38
months it Is long skulled. If the child
had been placed on its back, according
to other experiences its head would
have been short-shaped. Dr. Walcher
did not deny that tho shape of the
head was inherited, but asserted that
it could be greatly influenced by the
way tha child rested.
Heart and Nerves Fall on Coffee.

puts the case regarding stimulants
with a comprehensive brevity that ib
admirable. Ho says:
"I am DC years old and have had con
siderable experience with stimulants.
Thoy aro all alike a mortgage cn re
served energy at ruinous Interest. As
tho whip stimulates but docs not
strengthen tho horse, se do stimulants
act upon the human f.ystem. Feeling
this way, I gavo up coffee and all
other stimulants and began the use of
Postum Food coffee some months ugo.
The beneficial results have been ap
parent from the first. Tho rheumutlBin
that I used to suffer from has left me.
I sleep sounder, my nerves are stead

SCALY ERUPTION ON BODY.
Doctors and Remedies Fruitless Suf
fered 10 Years Completely
Cured by Cutlcura.
"When I was about nine years old
small Bores appeared on each of my
lower limbs. ! scratched them with a
brass pin and shortly nfterwnrds both
of thoHo limbs becamo so suro that
I could scarcely walk. When I had
been suffering for about a month
tho sores began to heal, but small
scaly eruptions appeared where tho
sores hud been. From that tlmo on
ward I was troubled by such scvero
Itching that, until I became accus
tomed to It, I would scratch tho sores
until tho blood began to flow. This
would stop tho Itching for a few
days, but scaly places would appear
again and the Itching would accom
pany them. After I suffered about
ten years I mado a renewed effort to
effect a cure. Tho eruptions by this
tlmo had appeared on every part of
my body except my face and hands.
Tho best doctors In my native coun
ty advised mo to use arsenic In small
doBes and a salve. I then used to
butho the sores In a mixture which
ft.iTO almost intolerable pain. In ad
dition I used other remedies, such
as Iodine, sulphur, zinc salvo, 's
Salve, Ointment, and In fact I
was continually giving romo romedy
a fair trial, never using less tliua
one or two boxes or bottles. All
this was fruitless. Finally my hair
began to fall out and I was rapidly
becoming bald. I used 's ,
but It did no good. A few months
after, baring used almost everything
else, I thought I would try Cutlcura
Ointment, having previously used
Cutlcura Soap and being pleased with
It After using three boxes I was
completely cured, and my hair was
restored, after fourteen years of suf
fering and an expenditure of at least
$50 or $60 In vainly endeavoring to
find a cure. I shall be glad to write
to any one who may be Interested In
my cure. II. Hiram Mattlngly, Ver
