Tne republican light for recogni
tion In the conntj it becoming net
nallj fascinating.
Hum. W. H. Nr.r.CR tell the Ma
comb Journal that be ia sot a candi
date for congress in bii old district
this year.
Tub democrats carried Sancamon
county outside of Springfield Xuet.
uaj d a majority ol 223. In 1894
the republicans carried the same ter
ritory by more than 200. This is a
democratic gain over two ;earsa ao
oi more man w.
It is to be hoped that the rennbli
cans will not be mixed as to thedates
of their caucuses and will not be
mi led up with the rule of primary
election euner mo straight oiarasn.
ionrd rule goes this time. This sea'
son's lesson left its sting.
George For. a farmer of Kewa
nee, who sold bis farm recently,
consisting of 403 acres, to give his
children a better education, while
loading his goods in a car was kicked
by a steer in the stomach, and it
caused death in a rery short time.
Thr editor of the Mt. Vernon Dai
ly Krister is plnjicg in big luck
these days he cheerfully acknowl.
edges the receipt of a donation of
potatoes, of the elephant" variety,
and then proudly boasts that half 'a
dozen of them wou!d be suflicicnt for
a meal for an ordinary family.
With the Union out ilatfooted for
the reelection of S. J. Collins for
chairman of 'be republican cnuntv
committee he ought to experience no
more trouble anout getting there.
It will be remembered that the Union
insulted organized labor for its tight
against Collins when he wanted to
be superintendent of the court house
construction, but ho got there never
theless. Now he proposes to ride over
the heads of all opposition into some
thing better.
Tha Stala Tas Ratr.'
Some of our republican friends ap
pear to be exercised over the splen.
did record for efficiency and economy
in administering state affairs dis.
ployed by the democratic state ofti.
eials. This is aptly illustrated bv
the indiscreet war in which some of
the lets careful republican political
prophets emphasize their expressions
of surprise at the 62 cent tax rate.
and seek to disprove the record of
democrntio economy by insinuating
that the increased tax rate and the
practiced economy do not read well
together. To sav the least, this is
indiscreet. These designing croak
ers should know that the tax rate it
not fixed by the state ollicers, bat by
the legislature, and as that body was
strongly republican in both branches,
it is pertinent to address imiuirica
regarding the tax levy to tho general
assembly.
The 39th general assembly has a
reputation f r corruption and ex.
travairance that is unsurpassed. The
appropriations made by it aggregate
nearly flO.lXKJ.OOO a million dollars
more than those made by its prede
cessor. If tho appropriations are
large the levy and consequently the
state tax rate will be large, and that
is just what was the matter with the
recent republican legislature.
Notwithstanding the fact that be
tween it and the scsston of 1993 a
disastrous panic and two drouths
bad occurred, greatly distressing the
people, in the republican legislature,
in the one item of legislative em
ployes, the expenditures jumped
from 6I. SOI in 1893 to $114,000 in
195. Scores of useless ollicers and
employes were on the pay rolls at
big salaries, with nothing to do at a
time when taxpayers were sorely
pressed for enough money to pay
their taxes. Indeed, it is a notori
ous fart that members of the last
legislature had individuals placed
upon the psy rolls at good salaries
with no other duties to perform but
to black their boots and brush their
clothes, carry their valises to and
from trains, lead them back and
forth between the capitol, when at
tending the sessions, and to steer
them about among the "pleasure
resort' so abundant at the capital.
That is why tho tax rate is in
creased, and the less our republican
friends stir up a discussion of the
history of the 39th general assemblv,
the better will be their niirhtlT hours
cf rest. '

HEART DISEASE.
Some Facts Regarding the
Rapid Increase of Heart
Troubles.
Do Not Be Alarmed, But
Look for the Cause.
Heart troubles, at least among
Americans, are certainly increasing,
and while this may be largely due
to the worry and excitement of
American business life, it is more
often the result of weak etomachs, of
poor digestion.
Real, organic heart disease is in.
curable, but not one case in a Jinn
drtd of heart trouble, is organic.
The close relation between heart
trouble and poor digestion is because
both organs are controlled by
branches of the same great nerves,
the sympathetic and pueumogastric.
In another way. also, the heart it
affected by that form of poor diges
tion, which causes gas and fermenta
tion from half digested food; there is
a feeling of oppression and heaviness
in the chert caused by pressure of
the distended stomach on the heart
and lung, interfering with their ac
tion; hence arises palpitation and
short breath.
Poor d gestion alae poisons tbe
blood, makes it thin and watery,
which irritates and weakens the
heart.
The most sensible treatment for
heart troubles ia to improve the di
gestion and to insure the prompt as
similation of food.
This cau best be done by the regu
lar ue, after meals, of some safe,
pleasant and effective digestive prep
aration, like Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab
lets, which may be found at most
drug stores and which contain valua
ble, harmless digestive elements, in
a pleasant, convenient form.
It is tale to say that the regular,
persistant use of Stuart' Dyspepsia
Tablets at meal time, will cure any
form of stomach trouble, except can
cer of the stomach.
Full size packages of the Tablets
