The New Hampshire legislature will be asked for an appropriation for the erection on the Capitol grounds of a status of Franklin Plerct, the only New Hampshire man who baa been president of the United. States. The body of Mr. Pierce rests in Conoord, la ths old North Cemetery. William K. Vanderbilt haa ordered a new automobile In France that will bo nearly 50 per cent more powerful than bis famous “White Ghost." His present machine has a road record of fifty-five miles an hour, but the new one will be of forty-two horse power, and able to go at n rate of seventy ■eren miles an hour. It will cost 912,- MO. A Philadelphia judge la reported as haring a most exalted idea of the Im portance of his court, for he fined a physician for contempt because, being a witness, he had kept the court wait ing half an hour, while at the bed aids of a patient so ill that he could not safely be left. Said the judge: "It is better that a patient should die than that the court should be treated with contempt." Mrs. Elisabeth Lldy, 80 ye&ra old, six times married and five times divorced, haa been adjudged Insane at Peters burg, Ind. She began her matrimonial ventures while still a girl, and she continued through life discarding one husband after another, hopeful that ■he would find an Ideal one. A com mission decided that this hopeless am bition was evidence of insanity and ruled accordingly. A "New-Lald-Egg Society" has been organised in England. In furtherance of Its object collecting depots are being established at various points. The formation of such a union not only suggests the almost universal propen sity of human beings to Increase the varieties and numbers of societies, but It testifies forcibly to the fact that recentness In an egg Is a form of new rlchens which sarcasm spares and good sense welcomes. A man named Chandloux has Just hanged himself at Nevers, France. The circumstances of the suicide are in no way extraordinary except for the fact that the man was the fifth husband of a woman, all of whose previous hus bands came to a violent end. The first hanged himself, the second perished In « fire, the third drowned himself, and the fourth and fifth have both been found hanged, and in each case, atrangely enough, on a pear tree. On the Intereceanlc railway of Mexico a part of the track haa been laid on ties of Jarrah wood Imported from Australia for this purpose. The jarrah wood is obtained from one of the largest tress of the forests of Aus tralia, which grows to an average height of two hundred feet, and is about four feet in diameter at the trank. There Is usually an Interval of 150 feet to the first branch. These trees furnish timber which Is sound In every respect.there being an absence of dry rot, gum veins and other de fects that often characterise large trees. "I've kep’ school," said a Kentucky mountaineer, whose eyes were opened by a visit to Berea college, "but I can't aay I've ever taught." With more ade quate provision for training and an ever-rising standard of qualification, the pedagogical profession Is taking on aew dignity and power. All the more Important Is It not to rush things, for the flneet results must depend on full tides of vitality. In twelve states as eoclatlons of teachers met during the recent holidays. Schoolroom work Is srearing to brain and nerve, and It Is open to question whether it la wise to pack the vacations with shop-work, however attractive or handsomely done. The peanut seems to be playing the part of "clvlllser" In somo of the for eign possessions In tropical Africa. Traders give a negro a bushel of nuts for seed on condition that he returns (four bushels from his crop, and since the yield in good years Is twenty-fold, the black man generally haa a surplus which he can sell at the rate of a shill ing a bushel. From a single station in Benegambla there were skipped. In 2888, twenty-nine thousand tons. Small hoys and scientists have long been In agreement touching the value of the peanut; now statesmen also will have to do It honor, since It seems likely to lead the native African into the paths of agriculture. The superior quickness of American workmen was strikingly illustrated not long ago, when a number of them were •ent to Europe with a shipment of American locomotives. With previous consignments only a foreman and his assistant had been sent, and local labor was relied upon for all the work save superintendence; but the foreign workmen were so leisurely In their habits that It took them twice as long as the same force of Americans re quired for the task. Hence it was to send all the men necessary to sat up the locomotives. An Important change in the new uniforms of the German army is that the buttons are dark and worn beneath the cloth. The rhlnlng buttons tnat glistened In the sun, proclaimed to the enemy: "Here lies a brave soldier's heart Shoot!" No rational law of war or society demands that risk.

After some debate It was refused. A message from the governor was read stating that he had approved and filed S. C. R. G. regaed- Ing the portrait of Otto Mears being pluced in the caplto! dome. HON. WEBSTER BALLINGER, Representative from I’ark County. George E. Ross-Lewln of the First Nntlqnal Bank, Denver, testified be fore the bribery Investigation commit tee that be knew of no combination among bankers to defeat section for ty-seven of the revenue bill. No mem ber of the House had offered to defeat the section If bankers would form a combination of enough money. The First National had not been solicited for funds to defeat It. Senate Bill No. 201 (Buckley), grant lng to corapnnles'goneratlng, transmit ting anil selling electrical energy the right of eminent domain, wns taken up by the Senate in committee of the whole and amended so as to require the payment Into the public treasury of the city or county granting the right of way the sum of one per cent.* by the corporation receiving the fran chise. It was then recommended for third rending and passage. Senator Seldomrldgc has filed a pro test ngninst House Bill No. 125, by Mr. Kuwait, with the amendments provid ing for the payment of deficiencies of the last two administrations out of the funds of the present biennial period. Senator Seldpinrldge was the only one who voted ngninst the bill In the Sen ate on Its final passage, although oth ers opposed the measure. The grounds of Senntor Seldomrldge’s opposition are purely legal. He believes that the bill will, If enacted into a law, bo de clared unconstitutional ns soon os It reaches the Supreme Court. Senator Moore’s proposed amend ment to the constitution for nn eight hour day for tlie workers In mines aud other equally dangerous occupations, fa now ns much a law ns It can bo un til the people of the state vote upon It. On the evening of the 11th instant, Just before the Senate adjourned Lieu tenant Governor Coates signed the bill, after It had passed both houses, then gave the new pen and penholder with which he signed the measure to Sena tor Moore, Introducer of the measure. The signature of Governor Orumn will probably be added, but it is not needed under the law. C. B. Sanborn, after being long sought after, was found and testified before the bribery investigation com mittee. He inquired if Ills name bad been given to the committee by Col onel Montgomery. He wns told that It had not. He then said that lie knew nothing about money being used. He left the cnpitol building about 2:50 p. m. of the day the vote on reconsidera tion was taken and did not «ee what transpired. He hail tokl Mr. Rawalt that Mr. Montgomery’s remarks were the rankest lie ever heard in a legisla tive hall. He did not use the word "raw” in connection with the subject of bribery, nor did lie say members bad been bought injudiciously. He knew of nobody who could give auy Information. The Jefferson medical bill passed sec ond reading In the Senate, and was or dered to a third reading and recom mended for final passage. Senator W. A. Hill made a hard light to protect the public from the doctors ns well as from disease. He asserted that the state wns cursed by consumptive doc tors who aided in spreading the dis ease. He offered an amendment to ex clude them from practicing. Later he nltered It to make it apply only to those who should come to Colorado In the future. Dr. B. L. Jefferson, nutlior of the medical bill, protested against the amendment. Senntor Hill asked him if he did not admit that a sick person wns more liable to contract dis ense than a well person and that there fore if doctors should not be especially healthy. Senntor Jefferson admitted this, but still protested ngninst the amendment. It was voted down and the bill was ordered placed on third reading. The Denver Republican of March 13th says: "The corporations commit tee of the House met last night and de cided the fate of the two railroad com mission bills in the hands of that com mittee. The one by Mr. Ong for a commission on railroads to be elected by the people wns defeated without much discussion. The bill on the same subject by Mr. Pitschke for a commis sion of three members to be appointed by the governor wns referred to a sub committee of three consisting of Ham mond, Bradley and l’itschke; the com mittee being Instructed io prepare amendments to the bill to make It con stitutional. Webster, Ballinger and other members of the committee open ly admitted that they did not expect the bill to pass, but thought that It should be amended and reported to the House. Among those who appeared and spoke against both bills were Wil lard Teller. E. E. Wbltted and several railroad officials." The Stewart bill to amend the truan cy law by making offenses against complusory education more severely punishable than heretofore, passed sec ond reading in the Senate without a dissenting vote. It was not, however, the original bill whieb was passed, but an entirely new bill substituted under the name of Senator Stewart by the committee on education. This bill »s largely along the lines suggested by Senator James O. Evans before be died. It provides special reformatory nnd Industrial school sentences for of fenses against compulsory education laws. In substance It proposed that: “Every child between eight and six teen years of age, who is habitually a truant from school, disorderly or im moral or both, may be deemed a Ju venile disorderly person. It shall be the duty of the truant olHcer to make a complaint against such children; and the County Court shall commit them to the children’s home if eligible or to the bovs’ or girls' industrial schools. Any child committed may be transfer red from the children’s home to either industrial school or from either In dustrial school to the reformatory at the discretion of the authorities. No child thus committed shall be detained beyond the age of eighteen years. Ei ther the Judge making the sentence or the authorities of the institution may dismiss the complaint nnd release.the Inmate at any time his conduct seems to warrant it." Senator Bucklin'S Bill. In the House on the Stli instant the special features of the day were the discussion on constitutional amend ment bills, they having prcedenco on the calendar. Senate bill 1 (Bucklln), the Austra lasian tax system, was supported nnd opposed with spirit. The author of the bill was present. Mr. Lubers had never become convinced that the sys tem, ns applied to this county, is wise. In New Zealand, where its success is cited, the revenue derived from that source was but six or seven per cent, of the total. That country had excise and other duties which could not be used by a state or county. If the sys tem were adopted here the tax on land must be increased many fold, because no such excise and other duties could be used to make up the necessary rev enue. He was not certain he would vote against it now, but he gave notice that unless he received more light he would oppose It on third rending. Mr. McLean was opposed to the prin ciple and would vote against it. Mr. Meredith said he should not discuss the merits of the system. This bill proposes to submit to the people the question whether the constitution shall be amended so that any county may try it or not. He believed in home rule, and even if opposed to adoption of the system would support this bill because it referred the question to the people. Mr. Gormnn advocated it on the merits of the system. Mr. Bartels doubted its adaptability to established institutions. Mr. Martin supported it. Mr. Neeley opposed It, ns it permits the exemption of certain corporations nnd combinations from taxation. Mr. Montgomery advocated it on the broad principle that it referred to the peoplo the question of choosing or rejecting. Mr. Itlley opposed it on principle. The bill was liuully recommended for third reading. Seldomridge Refunding Bill. The text of the Seldomridge bill foi taking care of the indebtedness of the state, as it passed the Senate, reads a* follows: “Section 9. article 11., of the consti tution shall read: The state shall not contract any debt by loan in any form, except to provide for casual deficien cies of revenue, erect public buildings for use of the state, suppress insurrec- HON.

D. 1903. Provided, further, that said bonds shnll be payable in thirty-five years from the date of their issue, and, at the option of the state, at any time creating a sinking fund for the ulti mate redemption of said bonds. The said State Board of Equalization shall annually, for a period of twenty years, nfter fourteen years from the date of their issue, levy nnd assess a special tnx, which shnll be In addition to the rate specified in section 11 of article X. of the constitution, on all taxable property in the state sufficient in nmount to create an annual fund equal to five per cent, of the par value of said bonds. “And, provided, further, that no out standing obligation of the state shall be funded which may have been here tofore or may hereafter be declared Told by the courts of this state." NOW A TRADE WAR. THE WEST AND SOOTH HEBEI. AGAINST THE EAST. “If the United State* were a bug* funnel, with the .mailer end at New York, «o that all things from all aeoj lions could scramble iu at one end and land with o certainty at the other, the business men of New York might not be engaged, ns they are at present In what threatens to be a last struggle to prevent the general trade of Ameri ca from eloping to the Interior of the continent. “Twenty or more years ago nearly evervthlug gravitated toward New York Boston, Philadelphia and other cities of the North Atlantic section. The raw products of every portion of the West, from Utica to Denver, tumbled over themselves to reach the manufactories of the East. The retail ers of the West, from the Mononga hela to the North Platt nnd the Sacra mento, sent their orders for pots, pans, hoe-haudles and groceries to the Job bers of the Harlem and the Schuyklll. The farmers of the West shipped their wheat and corn from the Mississippi valley to the shores of the Hudson and the Narragansett to purchase their plows and their hay-rakes. But in the latter portion of the seventies the pro cess began to stop, Qnd it bos been stopping ever since. The food stuff and the raw material of the West have found that home is a good place to stay. Grocers and furniture dealers and clothiers nnd shoemakers Jhlnk that freight charges saved are better than trade-marks of old firms on the Atlantic. 4 _ _ “Woods grown in the forests of the Northwest and South are turned Into harvesters and wagons and office desks In the vicinity of their birth. The man iu the West does his busi ness in the West. The man In the South does his business in the South. New York is simply submitting to a law of geography. There are moun tains and rivers between the West and South nnd the North and East, and commodities of trade, like human beings, climb or swim only for neces sity or for sport. Grain refuses to go up the Blue Itldge lu order to get down to the Atlantic, because it can reach the ocean at the Gulf or the Great Lakes wlfh half the effort. Or ders for metal or cloth balk at the mountains and the distance to the East and North, because they have found that they can get what they want In the nearer fields of Birming ham and Superior and North Carolina. “As Colonel J. M. Lowe of Kansas City put the thing rather aptly some years ago In a speech made in reply to a declaration by railroad managers that the diversion of traffic to the Gulf was to be chocked: “ ‘lt’s no use. The flat Ims gone forth and all the managers In creation can not stop It. Western grain will not submit to climb the mountains and be hauled 1,300 miles down to a seaport when It can reached deep water on a down grade In half the distance. For a quarter of a century the West, like a gigantic Alderney cow, has been etanding, stretched across the conti nent with her hind feet in the East, and we are getting tired of all this and propose to change ends.” —Arthur Ia Street, in Aiuslee’s Magazine.

Tradition says “woman must «nf. fer,” and young women are so taught. There is a little truth nnd a great deal of exaggeration in this. If a young woman suffers severely she needs treatment, and her mother should me that she gets it. Many mothers hesitate to tako their daughters to a physician for examine tion ; but no mother need hesitate to write freely about her daughter or herself to Mrs. Pinkham and secure the most efficient advice without charge. Mrs. Pinkham’s address ia Lynn, Mass. Mrs. August Pfalzgraf, of South Byron, Wis., mother of the young lady whose portrait we here publish, wrote Mrs. Pinkham in January, 18D9, saying her daughter had suffered for ’two Sears with irregular menstruation-, ad headache all the time, and pain in her side, feet swell, and was generally miserable. Mrs. Pinkham promptly replied with advice, and under date of Mareh. 1899, the mother writes again that Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable I Compound cured her daughter of all ' pains and irregularity. | Nothing in the world equals Mrs. ! Pinkham’s great medicine for regu i luting woman’s peculiar monthly ! troubles. ?*3MS|seatestof U. CEREALS MMMHI \pWa tt will capture *T*ry b**r« in o*l th* grnofnc.bNy of W Introducer.
