\ W\\ " Mary, how do you like the Ivory Soap?" " Best we have ever had, ma'am. The starched clothes are whiter and the flannels are softer than when washed with common soaps. It saves my hands; they used to be very sore after a wash." "Well, Mary, I am told that it saves the clothes, too, and you shall have only Ivory Soap after this." Those who have tried both common soap and Ivory Soap, say that it takes only two-thirds as much of the Ivory for a wash. COPYRIGHT 1898 BY THE PROCTER L GAMBLE CO. CINCINNATI BETTER THIS BAUBLE MAYORALTY NOMINATION OF THE DEMOCRACY PROMISES AN ELECTION THIS YEAR MANY COVET THE HONOR, TOO Good Field In the Running for the Nomination Soon to Be Made- Gossip as to Leaser Places That Wistful By** Are Bent Upon as Spring Becomes an Approximate Reality. The popular idea around town that a nomination on the Democratic ticket this Bpring means an election may account for the fact that there are a number of men who are willing to head the ticket. I Dr. E. H. Whitcomb has been in the field for a long time, that is, his friends have been talking him up, and there is no doubt but what he has a large number of fritnds in the city. In fact, it is said his has become the most aggressive campaign up to this time. His friends are already framing up delegates to the convention from the list of delegates who attended the last convention. This work, too, is not confined' to any one ward, but wherever there is a local leader known to be friendly to the Eighth ward physician. Aid. Matt Banta has also openly given it out that he would accept the nomination and make the race or. his record in the board luring the last two years. Like Dr. Whitcomb, he comes from the Eighth ward, and would likely divide the dele gation with Whitcomb. J. J. Parker has told a number of people, so the Globe is informed, that he would be pleased to make the race this spring, but to what extent he has pushed his desire is not yet apparent. Humphrey Barton has been urged to make the race for the nomination. Up to the present Mr. Barton has not fully determined to make the struggle, which it seems would be necessary to get there. His position as the head of the city and county organi zation has given him prominence as a party man. Still his position does not help him in any way except as individual members of the organization might be disposed to support him. The sentiment of the organization is that Mr. Barton is entitled to a good deal of considera tion at the hands of the local party at Borne future time. • Whether or not this is the time to seek that something Is for Mr. Barton and his advisers to decide. Ther are a number of Democrats still who would like to see Hon. J. W. Lusk placed at the head of the ticket, and the name of Postmaster Smith is not Infrequently heard In connection with mayoralty talk. • • • Anthony Yoerg Jr. would like to try the running with McCardy again this spring. He thinks he could "get ir^sld© the money this time." How hard he purposes to work for the nomination re mains to be seen. Edward Ekman, who also ran against McCardy, and split the Democratic vote with Yoerg last year, would also like to go it alone with the> present comptroller. And, as the Globe }ias heretofore mentioned, John Rogers Jr.'s name has been coupled with this nomination. • * * For city treasurer Peter J. Metzdorf WORST KIND OF CASE. We Will Tell You if You Will Believe It. The Experience of Well Known Per sons Ought Surely to Be Convincing. "We ask you to read the following state ment from a well known citizen because he suffered from one of the worst kind of cases of backache and kidney disor ders, and was cured by Morrow's Kid-ne oids. If you are in the least way troubled with a weak back or disordered kidneys, use Morrow's Kid-ne-oids; they cure every, time. Mr. W. Porter, elevator man at Mann heimer Bros., corner of Robert and Sixth street, Bays: "I have been a constant sufferer from kidney troubles for a long time. I suffered with kidney backache, rheumatism, nervousness and other dis tressing- and annoying symptoms of dis ordered kidneys. I tried to get relief by taking different kinds of kidney remedies, but my trouble remained until I com menced to take Morrow's Kid-ne-oids. Kid-ne-olds cured me of all my former troubles.

He thinks the fact that he and two of the mayoralty candidates live in the same ward will not have any bearing on the ambitions of any of them. Robert N. Grady may make the race for alderman in the Fourth ward. It is not known whether Aid. Donahower- in tends taking another chance at this or not. If he does the Democrats expect to beat him. It is probable that Henry Sternberg, who came within a few votes of defeat ing Aid. Kenny at the last election, will receive the Third ward nomination for alderman again. Charles E. Hamilton has been men tioned as a candidate on the Republican ticket to succeed Aid. Sanborn. The St. Paul Review says: "Mr. Hamilton was mayor of Winnipeg during the Riel rebellion, and was attorney genera) of the former Conservative Manitoba cab inet. He has had practical experience in the very duties he would be called upon to perform, and In this instance the man would dignify the office." * * • Henry Bahe, of the Eighth ward, will be a candidate before the Republican convention for city treasurer. * * * The Tenth ward, which favored C. F." Mahler,.for mayor in the last Republican con^Wpon, is again exhibiting Mahler Bynu>tnms. * * • — Aid. Shepard will likely make the race again unless Sullivan defeats him for the nomination. Shepard would like the nomination for mayor, and would or dinarily be satisfactory to certain influ ences dominating city Republican poli tics, but It is understood that Reeves already has all of these hooked on, so that the best that remains for ShefJurd is to try to get back where he is. He had a close call last time, and may think that was a lesson. The Tenth ward Republicans are said to have experienced the same feelings about Allard that the Democrats did after he had represented them two years. They are tired of him. Capt. Webber is said to be as pleased with this change in sentiment as any one. The Midway News dashes cold water on the aldermanic aspirations of W. J. Sullivan. It says-r "The matter of Mr. Sullivan's aldermarric aspirations was probably one of those side moves employ ed in the contest just closed, as no yourg lawyer in the act. of starting out in a new practice can afford to devote the amount of time necessary to prop erly represent such a ward as the Elev enth for a remuneration of only $8" a month."

OOM PAIL AMIABLE BOER PRESIDENT PLACID IN SPITE OF THE TRIALS OF THE WAR PEACE REIGNS IN PRETORIA Interesting: Plctnre of Condition* In the Transvaal Capital Given by an American Correspondent— Steyn,' of the Orange Free State, Emphatic In His Views as to the "War—A Boom In Umbrellas.' The following Interesting resume of the situation at Pretoria during war times is written by the correspondent of the Chicago Inter Ocean, who says: The few officials who remain here work quietly and tteadily. By far the greatest pressure of state affairs falls upon F. W. Reitz, the state secretary. He is at. work from dawn to midnight, transacting a bewildering mass of affairs. Tele grams from all parts of the country rain In upon him, all of which he reads at once and decides upon. To him is sum mitted all the war news, and he decides what may be given out to the public and what is to be kept as government in formation. I had expected, from reports I had heard, to find this man utterly broken down in health and mind, but, as a matter of fact, I find him full of bodily vigor, and practically able to carry on with ease the work of a country at war. Indeed, all the officials of the state ap pear to work easily, and each appears to do his share in harmony with the rest. All of them are Boers, and they show no signs of physical or mental over strain. Their equanimity under trying circumstances, or their Dutch phlegm, is a never-ending source of wonder to me. Numbers of them adjourn at intervals to spend a week or so at the front. Then, after taking part in an engagement, they return to their duties in a placid manner as if nothing out of the common had occurred. I find it almost impossible to obtain any details or stories of the cam paign from them. OOM PAUL AMIABLE. In company with Mr. Reitz I called one afternoon on President Kruger. The old .president, who is now seventy-five yoar9 of age, rose quickly from his seat, on my arrival, and asked me where I had "bean wandering for the past six years." I told him all the world over, and lately in New York. The old man reseated himself and resumed his pipe silently. I h.ad met him nineteen years previously under very similar circumstances. It was at Kim berley upon his return from England in 1880, a few weeks before he was to de clare war for the first time against Eng land. The man before me now was evi dently the same strong, obstinate man. There was the same quick look from the corner of his eye, the same husky, harsh, and aggravating voice. His coat might have been worn for the six years of my absence; the Kruger hat worn the same. The old man's eyes were plainly very sore, and must cause him great irrita tion, but I am told thai since the declara tion of war he has been abnormally tfm iable. Our conversation opened with America. I told the president that when I left the United States a considerable amount of public sentiment was veering round in favor of the republic. To this he replied in a laughing way that he thought the Americans would do all that the English men asked them to do—"in fact, they will join the English against Africa.'" That very day news had been cabled out that eight American warships had been ordered to South Africa "as a token of good will to England." TAKE LIFE SERENELT. I heard that the Boers had very few men on the frontier near Kimberley and Hopetown. And, as it was well known that De Aar Junction had been strongly fortified as a base for the forward move ment by General Buller, when sufficient reinforcements arrived. I was sur prised at the seeming apathy of the Boer leaders in this matter. Then I was told that the burghers at Tuli and Mafeking were being transferred to the Free State frontier near Kimberley and Norval's Pont. Nothing definite was known about. Builer's forces except that dense masses of troops had been seen moving north of De Aar. I was in Johannesburg when a high official told me that the English had crossed the Orange river and were mov ing to Belmont, where they were oppos ing only 1,500 Boers. The following morn ing tho news came in, privately, that'the Boers had been driven back with a loss of twelve killed and forty-four wounded. I took a train for Bloc-mfontein, and, after many delays, went on with a train load of Transvaalers who were bound for the front. Numbers of these men wer« taking a railway journey for the hrst time in their lives, but they seemed to take matters as serenely as the oldest travelers. They were quiet and seemed thoroughly confident. All carried a little plum food in a small pillowcase or bag. They were dressed "anyhow." During the night they sped the long hour 3by singing hymns. At the railway stations during the day light run south through Free State vil lages the government had provided free coffee. Nothing else was offered or ex pected. Groups of young girls in their country Sunday dress were slr.ging the national anthem or hymns. It was Sunday, and the scene and the surround ing country recalled Ohio or Indiana in the first days of '61. On arriving at Bloemfontein I found the town in its cus tomary Sabbath calm. A few children and women were en the platform as we ran into the station, but there was no expression of welccme shewn to the train load of fighting men from tho north. Aft er a change at the Masonic hotel I started out in the fierce glare of the African sun shine to find the government secretary. But at the government building all was silence and locked doors Neither guards nor attendants were visible. So I return ed after a while, and found the editor of the Express, who entered my name at the deserted club, and then took me to the local "White house," where I met President Steyn, who was sitting with a few friends in front of his house. The "My dear Puss, you must have seen—you must have realized—you must know that I love—" "Get out, Tommy! I aon't like your necktiel" president Is a typical Africander, stand- Ing six feet In height. His powerful frame Is surmounted by a large head. He has clear, large eyes, elevated arched eye brows, a flat nose, and a full dark beard. Thi3 Is the man who, more than any. oth er, represents the spirit of militant Afri canderism. STEYN THROUGH WITH ENGLAND. He told me, in answer to my inquiry for news of the fighting, that it had been very severe, but that the English advance had been checked, and that the reinforce ments arriving at the front every hour might possibly stay ther advance. He had no illusions, but thought that If the Eng lish, who were supposed to be 12,000 strong, with an immense number of can non, were active, there was no doubt they would enter Kimberley. The president expressed vigorously his contempt for the taetiM of Sir Alfred Mil ner. He said: "That they should have thought we were such cowards as to stand idly by am* see men of our own nationality butchered hurt me most of all." After a while ha added, forcibly: "Never again shall I be a party to, or shall I sign any convention with the Eng lish." President Steyn also referred to Amer ica, but not with the same good nature as did President Kruger. He said he had made a personal appeal to Presi dent McKinl-ey for arbitration, but had been refused. "America," he said, "has evidently ar rived at an understanding with England. The republican idea Is dead. We are looked upon as vassals of England, but we will show the world that we are able to defend our liberty as long as we have Hfe." He referred also with some bitterness to the Cape Colony politicians of the Af rica party as men whose "sole idea of as sistance was to get up a subscription for the widows and orphans. Our friends there are our greatest enemies. We can do without them." The 1,500 Boers* at Belmont were re inforced by the arrival of 600 more men in time to take pact in the first fight. They withdrew under the heavy artillery fire of the English, and report forty kill ed and seventy wounded. Their losses at Grass Pan must have been heavier. One commando was surrounded, tost many horses, and reports twenty-five killed and wounded. The English were reported to be slowly advancing toward Kimberley, and a heavy fight was ex pected on the 2Sth. On the 27th we heard that the Transvaal forces had reached the front after a forced march of forty eight hours. On the 2Sth, the day of the battle at Modder river, I wrote the fol lowing in Bloemfontein: The streets are full of burghers from Zontpansburg and Ladybrand, a fine iooking body of men. I opened conver sation with a fine-looking man of about fifty, an active, keen fellow, who told me he was Field Cornet Viljoen. He said he was out with his five sons, four of whom I saw, active six-footers, all eager" to be in the battle. All the burghers seem to be well' supplied with money (their own coinage), and the Eng lish storekeepers are doing a roaring trade. One purchase the burghers all seem anxious to make struck me as very strange. Every man wanted an um brella, and they have cleared the town of Its stock. Waterproofs are not to ba had at any price, and these men will have I to lie out in the rain for months to come. ! Every man of them seems to under stand that he must fight for a year if necessary. TALK WITH MB. FISCHER. I visited the raadzaal and had a long conversation with Mr. Fischer, the lead ing member of the cabinet. He told me that all the members of the raad were unanimous in standing by "their Trans vaal brothers^ A large number of towns people are English and make no secret of their sympathies. The reported dispatch of the American fleet, under Admiral Schley, gives them unbounded satisfac tion The Boer dislikes an American, and persists in his belief that America will ultimately assist the English. About 5 o'clock in the afternoon I called at the government house and was informed by the president that Gen. Cronje had re ported at 2 p. m. that heavy firing had commenced and that the burghers had held every position they occupied and were of good cheer. A full report would be sent later. The number of burghers engaged was between 4,500 and 5,000. A reliable spy had just reported he had counted 15,000 English troops passing the Orange river bridge last Thursday, and that train loads of bridge materials were awaiting the capture of the Modder river bridge, which had been destroyed by the Boers. In the evening I returned to the presiden cy and sat out with the president in the quiet starlight, awaiting the telegram which was to give details of today's fight. About a dozen men were there, and, notwithstanding the immense importance of this day's engagement, these Afri canders discussed I all sorts of subjects. Jan Wessels, a giant of a man, told hu morous stories of the fatal fighting. Dis patches kept rolling to, but not the one we were all waiting for. At last a tele gram arrived from one of the field cor nets, who had been fighting all day. He reported that the English had been driv en back at all points. The comment pass ed on this was that the English had been unable to deliver their attack, owing to the lateness of the hour, and would com mence again in the morning. A great battle had been fought, one which may become famous, and yet there was the president of one of the republics unable to get a word of detail. I followed the example of the natives and came here to my hotel to sleep, jnuslng as I walked along upon some phases of the Boer char acter. An American town under like cir cumstances would wake the place up with the noise they would make. The placid Boer goes to sleep. DEADLIEST POISONS Known Instantly Kill Human Beings That Absorb Them. Chicago Chronicle. The discoverer of prussic acid was in stantly killed by inhaling one whiff of his own handiwork. Pure prussic acid is never sold or han dled. The smell of it is always fatal. It kills not in three minutes or half an hour, but the instant it enters the lungs as a gas. The mixture ordinarily sold as prus sic acid is 98 parts water to 2 parts of the drug. Even in this form it is very deadly. A 20 per cent mixture of the acid would kill nearly as quickly as if pure. Atropine, though it has no harmful odor, is so deadly that so much of it as would adhere to the end of a moistened forefinger would instantly cause death. Cyanide of potassium has a pleasant smell, which is not injurious, but a small quantity swallowed kQIs at once. Pure ammonia, if inhaled, would cause death almost as quickly as prussic acid. PRIVATE CAR OFFICE GENERAL MANAGER OF RAILWAY DOES MUCH OF HIS WORK ON WHEELS IS SECURE FROM INTRUSION Has Time to Think and Act While Coins Over the Road—The Ordi nary Routine of the Life of a Railway Official When He Is on Business and Away From His Home Office. A great many men spent most of their time in walking, others in sitting, while others roll around the greater part of their lives. The general manager of a railroad company is on wheels more than half of his lifetime. He feels more at home in his private car than he does at his hotel or house in the city. Ask nine out of ten railroad officiate, and they will tell you that they can do more work and far more thinking in their private cars than when in their offices, no mat ter how well they may be guarded from the public by the faithful private secre tary or watchful messenger, for, in spite of these defenses, people will' call, tele grams and letters must be received and given attention. Once on the road, how ever, they are separated to a certain ex tent from the world about them, and can plan schemes with the aicf of a good cigar which cannot be thought out when at headauarters. Many a railroad official in this country starts out in his private car, and never sees the inside of a hotel or restaurant until he returns, although he may be ab sent a week or te-\ days. Sometimes he covers 2,000 or 3,000 mites without leaving it. Whenever the car stops those in the town who have business with him trans act it in his office. When the engineer opens the throttle and the train starts he resumes his correspondence or confer ence with some other official, which has been postponed during the stop. Before beginning the trip the secretary has had an idea of the places which would be reached on certain days, and directs that the mail from headquarters be forward ed accordingly. It may be sent to the division superintendent or to the station agents. If a change in the arrangement is made, and no stop is made at a cer tain point, the telegraph operator at that place is notified ahead, and the mail sent on to the next stopping point. JH lough the average is not over one delivery a day on a big system, it is enough to keep the official's staff busy in attending to it. Telegrams are, of course, the most im • portant, and frequently the special train is "flagged" for'the purpose of delivering such messages. The conductor only waits until the manager has had time to glance over the dispatch. The answer is hand ed the operator, and on goes the train, the engineer pulling out a little to make up for the unexpected delay. The mail usually reaches the private car at the first stop in the morning. The' secretary, with his paper cutter, goes through the stack of letters, ranging from the manlla envelopes with "train mail" in big black type printed in the corner, to the soiled white envelope, containing an application for a pass or a request for a job from some section hand, for the official receives all sorts of correspond ence. Much of it he never sees, for the secretary is a young man selected for his knowledge of human nature and what interests his superior. Sometimes fte is able to attend to one-half of it himself.. What he wishes to show the manager is spread out in a pile, and possibly, after breakfast, the two sit down on one of the leather couches of the smoking com partment. Puffing away at his Havana, the manager listens as the secretary puts the contents into as few words as possi ble. At the close of each communication the manager dictates his reply word for word if it Is important, and merely an outline if not. VERY RAPID MEN. The average railroad official is a very rapid man; is fond of making fast time, and in dictation he wants to get through as fast as possible. From 100 to 150 words a minute may be rattled off to the sec retary and the latter has to keep his row of pencils busily employed during the time. By the time the cigar is finished, the batch of letters has been attended to and the secretary, and possibly an as sistant, have enough to keep them going for the balance of the forenoon. Tha manager then attends to some of the other hundred details mapped out for this trip. Perhaps the car of an assistant superintendent or division freight agent has been hitched on at the last station. He sends for that official and for an hour or two they get their heads together over some special subject which can not be attended to by correspondence. Per haps he desires to look over improve ments on the line and has the porter place chair on the back platform where he can examine the track as the car passes over it at the rate of forty-five oi fifty miles an hour. Special trains aro generally noted for the fast time they make. One reason for this is the of ficials aboard get an idea of the con dition of the track and roadbed. If the car runs smoothV at a high rate of speed and does not jolt or rock, they know that It is well ballasted, the rail Joints are even and that it is in condition. Ex perience has accustomed them to note every jolt and jar and the reason for it. Many a section foreman has been hauled up after a trip of the superintendent over his part of the roaa and told to put h In better condition. Railroad men have to do a great deal of thinking, and in trips along the road where the train may run two or three j hours without stopping they have an op- | j portunity to get by themselves, which is denied them even in the quiet of the pri vate office. The car usually contains a half dozen stuffed easy chairs and a sofa or two in order that the manager or su perintendent may fix himself comforta bly while his mind is at work. It has plenty of little push buttons around the side, so that a touch of the finger is only needed to bring the porter with the cigar or a glass of something good. These little things have a wonderful ef fect in helping the mind work smoothly and rapidly. There is a great deal, too, in the bill of fare. Ag far as possible, the table is supplfed with the fruits and vegetables of the season and such meats as can be carried along in the condensed collection of the cook. The chef of today, however, has a much wider range than a few years ago. It is not considered much to get up a dinner nowadays which will include oysters on the half-shell, soup, roast turkey, escalloped oysters, o.uail on toast, two or three vegetables, olives, celery and salads for relishes, with ice cream to finish up, accompanied by a bottle of wine. A menu as elaborate as this can be quite easily prepared and served as well as in a modern hotel. It Is frequently enjoyed by the general man ager and his staff, for there is nothing small about the railroad official of today. He has plenty to do for his assistants, but takes care of them equally as veil as he takes care of himself. They h&ve no second table, but are all with the manager while on the road, unless he should have a party of friends as guests. It is rather monotonous and lonely at times when he is obliged to spend four or five days in traveling. He can not talk to his secretary as he can talk to an Intimate friend, no matter how confiden tial may be their relations, and is very glad to entertain son. 3 of the stockhold ers or directors of the line.

With time enough to talk over matters and no pos sibility of being disturbed, except by col lision or other accident, many an hour in the forenoon or evening can be spent dis cussing deals which may involve millions. The average capitalist and investor is well aware of the comforts of traveling in this manner, and has the opportunity if inter ested in the line to examine the cortions over which he passed and can jfldge of this or that feature by actual observa tion, whfch is much better than when a thousand miles distant. Private cars are built of the best ma terial, and have the latest ideas included in their arrangement. If a railroad man occupies a position which gives him the right to have a private car, his health is considered of such value that everything should be done to preserve it, and he should run as little risk as possible In case of accident. His life is precious from a business standpoint, if from no other. Then the private car is often used as an experiment to show the real value of new ideas in ventilation, in brakes, heating, lighting, etc. If they are failures the company dors not suffer the -toss from placing them on a number of passenger cars for the same purpose. Many a com pany manufacturing a certain kind of lamps, for instance, gladly furnishes a number of them free for several months for use te the private car, hoping they may get a big order from the railroad people. Consequently, while the private car represents a large amount of money, the railroad company does not always pay as much for It as might be thought, although some are running over the big systems of the country today which cost from $60,000 to $75,000 each. Among these may be mentioned the cars of President Samuel Spencer, of the Southern com pany; also those of President Galloway, of the New York Central; James J. Hill, of the Great Northern, and several other Western magnates. These cars are mod els of their kind, and no expense has been spared in any particular. President Cassatt, of the Pennsylvania, travels in a very ordinary looking car. It is not gorgeously decorated or furnished, which any reasonable man could desire. Presi dent Spencer's car was designed by him self and built and equipped entirely from his own ideas. While the cars of the gen eral manager and general superintendent are built purposely for them, the under officials are frequently obliged to get along with a passenger car from which the seats have been removed and par titions thrown up at an expense of a few hundred dollars. There is one small road in the South where the private car of the head man consists of a freight caboose which has been altered for the purpose. It is worth about $400. DEATHS.
