Tiik recent druutli has demonstrated that t'lis was also an ofT year in Mis t-ouri. Hkcacse Ohio Republicans hae made their Mark it is no 6ign that they can not write. It can safely be 6et down that Seth Low will now withdraw h:s resignation as President of Columbia College. Tiik Maryland Republicans will haye 17 majority on joint ballot and that is iuite sullicient to unjoint Mr Gorman's political neck. Only about 20 per cent of Greater New York's voters are American born citizens and their actions recently proves this statement. Evf.rv now and then a Chicago plat form plank gives way with a groan as nn exceptionally large business improve ment waves dashes against it. Sii.vki: is being discriminated against all the time. Last vear the mints of the United States coined only the tnfi ing sum of 3153,000.000 in silver. Tiik Kansas farmers are paying off 40 millions of indebtedness this year. How lucky for the Popocrats that this didn't happen a year ago. They wouldn't have carried an elector anywhere. Prosperity, dollar wheat, a 100c dollar, a protective tariff and settlement without loss with the Union Pacific railroad speak well for a Republican ad ministration not yet eight months old. The New Jersey Republicans retain a majority of 21 in the legislature as a re suit of this year's election. They rxpect after the next state contest, to send a Republican to the United States senate to succeed Senator Smith. Ik anything is left of the Citizens' Un ion in New York it should now adviie Tammany to lie down and die. That is the proposition tendered by the Low forces to the Republicansafter the great Republican victory of last year. Over 20,000 barrels of American ap nles were shipped to Grant Britain dur ing one week last month, and the price per barrel in Liverpool averaged $1.73. The choicest Newton pippins brought from toSi.2.) a barrel. American apples have secured an established re putation abroad. We live but once. Let us eBjoy this life in moderation of all things. Don't bear a grudge. Be of good cheer. Look upon the bright side of life and aid others. Tell your troubles only to your intimate friends and cut that short. In fact, be one of nature's chosen one. Don't take this life too serious; re me in ber you will be a long time dead. According to Mullhall, the greatest living statistician, the United States statids at the head of the world in bank ing facilities. He gives the banking strength of this country at $o,150,000,- 000; that of England at 1,330,000,000; Prance, 81,340,000,000, and Germany, 81,150,000,000. We are not the poverty stricken nation the free silverites would have us believe. It is funny to read that ?7S,000,000 wa3 raised in New York city at three meetings of the Christian Alliance, "for the heathen," while there are not school facilities there to afford all the children even primary education. Raising heath en at home, and sending 872,000,000 to Africa and elsewhere for the heathen! The Christian Alliance should organize a Mrs. J el I j by club, and study Dicken'a Bleak House" this winter. Ix fnrrlnrr Ifm rpnrcrani7.;ttion cony mittee of the Union Pacific to disgorge ci.i,uuu,wu more man u promiseu in Cleveland's days to pay, the McKinley administration has won n brilliant vic tory for the people. Of course, there is nothing partisan about this triumph. Nevertheless it is going to make many votes for the Republicans in the elec tions next week. Everything which helps the country will aid the Re publicans, and just at present the coun try in many ways is having n great run of luck. What were some of those remarks that were heralded around from Popo crntic stump to stump last year, to the nITect that our currency was so limited aud contracted that we could not do business, and that the only hope for a return to prosperity was through the free coinage of silver at 10 to 1? It is quite evident to observant men that some of these Popocrats were laboring under a mistake, because by reference to the election returns of 189G it will be seen that the free coinage proposition was not adopted, and yet here we find in the country today nearly a hundred million dollars more in circulation than there was a few years ago, and not n dollar of it free silver. Gold nlone has increased in circulation in the last year over fifty million dollars. Ir anybody wants to know how strong Hryiinism is in New York at this time.he lias only to remember that Henry George got about 20,000 votes of the total, which was more than 30,000. Then he should recall the facts that the George ticket was ollicially indorsed by two-thirds of the Bryanized democratic national com mittee, as well as by all the recognized leaders of the Bryan faction, such as Altgeld; that the campaign was manag ed by William J. Abbott, Bryan's clos est personal and political friend, who repeatedly affirmed that all the Bryacites would vote for young George, for "no friend of Bryan could vote for the Tam many candidate;" and that Mr. Abbott practically admitted that the Bryan cause would stand or fall by the result. It is evident that only one man in twenty live is eager for the social revolution, through the night before the election Mr. Abbott was sure George would get 170,000 rotes.

Arthur Pue Gorman will iu all prob ability terminate on the 1th of March, 1699. forty seven years of uninterrupted oflice-holding. During all the time he has held various public offices, but al ways has managed to get a new place as soon rb forced out of an old one. Ability to land on his feet is but an illustration of the sanator's cat like characteristics. He has the love of a place characteristic of the cat, and his relations with persons are secondary thereto. The loss of his senatorial otlice in all probaaility means the disappearance of the man from politics. When hiB term expires, he will be 00 years old, a rather lato time in life to build up a machine. His old machine is about destroyed, Re publicans being'in control of the city of Baltimore, the state of Maryland, and the federal patronage therein. There will be little grief over his downfall, for he has been in politics for what be could get out of it, without even the pretense of having any political principle or any policy except expediency. On several occasions, his conservative policy has prevented his harebrained party associates from doing great dam age, notably in the tariff bill which bears his name, but even in that he assisted in the infliction of injury upon the business of the country. He was a sound mooev man until the Chicago convention went otherwise, and then he joined the silver ites. In the effort to hold his present place he was the author of a meaning less straddle on the money question and the people of Maryland, disgusted with such work, hare cast him forth. He tried once too often to ride two horses and failed finally. Catarrh Cannot be Cured, with LOCAL APPLICATIONS, as they cannot reach the seat of the disease. Catarrh is a blood or constitutional disease, and in order to cure it you must take internal remedies. Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken internally, and acts directly on the blood and mucous sur faces. Hull's Catarrh Cure is not a quack medicine. It was prescribed by one of the best physicians in this coun try for years, and is a regular prescrip tion. It is composed of the best tonics known, combined with the best blood purifiers, acting directly on the mucous surfaces.

Prof. Waters Prof. and Prof. Schweitzer of the State Uni versity, to whom was intrusted the work of analyzing sugar beets sent in from the different counties of Missouri, with a view to ascertaining the percentage of sugarcontained, have made a report from seventy-six counties. They stale that out of 121 samples examined, fifty- three show a per cent which would We profitable for manufacturing purposes. It would seem that the fertility of the soil is not an indication of its value for producing sugar beets. Some of the finest general farming counties furnish the lowest per cent of sugar, notably the cotton-growing counties in the south east, while Wright county, reputed to contain the highest ground in Missouri furnishes n high per cent of sugar. It1 would seem safe to count Missouri as at least au average beet sugar country. Kansas City Star. In one way the Tammany hall ma- chine must command the admiration of the world. It knew what it was going to do, and how it was going to do it, and i it made no false predictions. The day , before the election it announced that t Van Wyck would receive 240,000 votes. ! The returns 6how that the estimate was ' within Ti.OOO of the actual result. It is seldom indeed that a political organiza tion issues such n conservative estimate, ' or that the results so nearly bear out ; the predictions. In strong contrast to the Tammany 1 estimate is that of the Piatt organiza- tion. It was given out by that eminent, Such a sweeping revolution as this eel historian, Lemuel Eh Quigg, that Gen. dom takes place in politics. So long as Tracy would receive 210,000 votes. Had he taken 100,000 off his estimate he would still have been several thousand ahead of the result. It was as bud with the George people, who claimed 185,000, and got less than 20,000. The only party other than Tammany that came within hailing distance of its figures was the Low contingent, which registered practi cally 150,000 of the 190,000 claimed. Politicians now see thnt Tammany was not working in the dark, but that there was a definite undestanding of the situation, arrived at by a careful bouse to house canvass and a system of checking that was only possible for such a compact organization as that which has just taken up an obscure judge of an inferior court, a man unknown ex cept in police annals, and elevated him to the second most important otlice in America. Tammany never guesses. It just cor ners the vote and then scores. J. M. Thirswend. of Grosbeck.

Others of them were belieyeis in the 10 to 1 theory, who were led astray by their enthusiasm. All of them sic- j gle tax enthusiasts and 1G to 1 enthusi-1 asts-ought to have been Democrats, The latter would have been with us if Mr. Bryan had not deterred them. He was sufficiently ucquaioted with the lo cal situation in New York city' in 189C to talk about it with complete assurance. He ought to have been able to make himself acquainted with it in 181)7. "He did nothing for the local Demo- cracy this year. Every suggestion of h.s j i ai committee, who is, presumably, very ' dose to him m sympathy, repudiated the candidacy of judge Van Wyck on the ground that judge van wyck did S cSgrontaif gZ toi Mr. George whatever support be had to give, although Mr. George had distinct ly repudiated the silver theory. "The trouble with Mr. Bryan and the secretary of the national committee is that they cannot adapt themselves to changing conditions. They insist upon following certain theories and in disre garding peculiar conditions of life.whiuh must affect the influence of those theor ies in the various parts of the country. "We are distinctly Democrats, who in sist upon taking things as they are. I hall be happy if, three years hence. Mr. Bryan's present prediction is verified; but I do not take much interest in pre dictions that have so long to run. Many things are likely to happen between now and 1001. If they happen as Mr. Bryan thinks they will happen, they will justi fy his assumption of the role of a proph et. If they do not, Mr. Bryan will be grieved. In any event, the Democratic party will remain." Household Goods. The ancient Greeks believed that the Penates were the gods who attended to tie welfare and prosperity of the fam ily.

Succession Tax. the idea of a succession tax, as it is called, is steadily gaining ground. Some years ago the Massachusetts legislature appeinted a commission to entirely over haul the system of taxation in that state. The commission has recently filed its report, in which it proposes a tax of 5 per cent, on all estates over a given nmount, and there is little doubt that the principle of a succession tax will be incorporated in the laws of Massachusetts by the nest legislature. There never was any other system of taxation deyised which is at once so just and so relieved of nil oppressive features and hardships. It does no in justice to anybody, imposes no hard ship in nny case; and besides these J I mer,t8, it cannot be dodged or eyaded, " amj tne tax ;8 always easily collected, an overshadowing merit in these days when so many methods are devised for escaping taxation. Illinois has now a succession tax law, and its constitu- j tionality was recently questioned in the supreme court of tne state, but the court upheld the law in all its features, holding that the legislature from time immemorial, had determined what dis position should be made or one's pro perty at his death, and that thure could be no doubt of the power of the legis lature to provide that a part of it should descend to the state, by way of taxa tion. The system has neyer been held unconstitutional in any 6tate where it i has been adopted. Ex.

Tiinrcr. or four years ago anybody who would have predicted that Maryland would any time within the present gen eration go Republican three times in succession, and haye two Republican ! senator nt the same time, would haye ' been thought a good subject for an asy- lum fcr idiots. Yet the incredible, the ! seemingly impossible, has come to pass. Maryland went Republican in 1895, 1890 and 1897. A Republican United States senator from Maryland took his seat last March, and another Republican senator from the same state will begin biB eervice a year and a third hence. the financial iseue remains at the front Maryland will be as reliably Republican as Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Ohio or Iowa. The same, of course, is true of Xew York. New Jersey and all the other eastern states formerly considered doubtful or Democratic. Attoknf.y Genf.rai.

The decision in Philadelphia rs tc: municipal ownership or the gasworks about to be made by iopiilar referen dum, suggests the growing fav. r in which the idea is held of a dirct de cision by the neoDle udoq varum mut ters of public interest Hnd concern, say ihe American .Monthly. Seth Low. for example, has made it evident in Ins speeches that he would he in favor of referring the queution of the timiiiy sale of drinks to a direct vote of the citizens of New York. In the two s.t.ito3 of Connecticut and New Jersey, the voters have within a few week tken direct action on important ii stiou submitted for their determination. The voters of Connecticut, by a very large , majority, declared themselves on Oc- tober 3 as in favor of an amendment t" theconstitutiou of the state whi. h re stricts suffrage to voters a'jle to read in . the hnghsh language any nrticlp of the 1 constitution or any section of the statutes. The vote against the pro position was very slight, every com munity, whether urban or rural, voting in the affirmative. In Xew Jersey a great popular contest was waged upon the qestion of an amendment to the constitution prohibiting gambling the evil practically a med at being that of race track p-rat-telling, book making and bulling. The country districts of New Jersey were in favor of the amend ment, and the large towns were against 11. ax. nrst me amendment seemed to oe lost, but on the final count of the votes it was found that this alutary provision had been adopted. The good citizens of New Jersey haye found themselves unable to trust their law makers to do their duty as against the powerful influence of the gambling fraternity, aud thus it has been deemed best to appeal to the referendum and seek protection under a oonbtittitional clause. The almost complete domina tion of our legislatures by bosses and corrupt elements will prubably drive the people of this country to a constantly increasing use, under one form or an other, of what iB known as the referen dum that is to 6ay. the direct vote of the people themselves upon questions of general importance.

The Couotry's Railroads. The report of the interstate commerce commission for lastyear, recently issued, contains some interesting figures. The country's railroad mileage is shown to be 182,77(1 miles, an increase of 2,119 miles for the yenr. While this is unim portant as compared with some of the preceding years, as in 1S37, when the new mileage amounted to 12,878 miles, or with 1882, when it was 11,509 miles, it is still creditable, considering the re cent hard times, 'lhe total railroad systems of thecoun try earned in the year $l,ir9,X),000, working an nrmy of 820,820 employes to do it. The killed and injured of this vast nrmy, along with the killed and in. jured passengers and others, make a to tal of 10,2:12, which exceeds the killed. wounded and missing of the bloodiest two battles of the civil war. During the year the roads carried 7u7,OOJ,000 tons of freight und 511,000, 000 passengers, or nearly eight times the entire population of the country. The figures are simply bewildering in magni tude of the work done and the amounts involved. The railroad system of the country is young yet. It is so young that half the roads in existence were built within the j last seventeen years. Three fourths of j them were built since 1870. With the revival of business in the next few years railroad men predict tne traflic will soon eclipse all previous records in both vol ume and total increase. It Is Tangible Prosperity. J Reports from every section of Ohio show that more men are at work, more money is in dirculation and more enter prises are being projected than at any time since 1892. There is nothing ephe meral in thisprosperity. It is tangible. Working men and business men feel it. It expresses itself in dollars and cents. It makes itself felt in the household as I well as in the store and workshop. The croakers are being silenced. The only calamity howling comes from the Demo cratic press and Democratic stump speakers, aud the people understand this is for effect, and, knowing its hollow ness, little attention is paid to it. What interests the people is to know that bet ter times are here; and they know this. Thousands of men who were idle last year are r.ow at work. Part of this pros perity, at least, is due to the Republican party and the enactment of the Dingley bill. Keeping Cabbage. The old plan of burying or putting ! cabbage in trenches during winter or for winter us. has become obsolete, and ; a more simple and easy plan has been adopted. American Gardening says: "Where cabbage is grown on loige scale for shipping purposes the best plan is to lift the cabbage and stack - them two tiers deep and as closely as they can be placed, in an orchard, or ' wood, if convenient, and cover with t leaves to the depth of two or three in ches, the leaves to be kept in place by n slight covering of earth. In this way th beads will keep perfectly sound nil winter, aud can be easily taken upas wanted for shipping. ''For family use cabbage can be kept j in the same way, only it will not be nec etsary to make the second layer. It is quite important to keep them a little below the freezing point. It has been suggested to keep them in some conven ient building, but this plan has always resulted in failure, as the dry atmos phere is fatal. Cabbage must be kept moist and cool. The slightest wilting renders it unfit for the table." Twenty Years Proof.
