I ven ture to say no man in the history of our country excelled ttisnopiwie." Merees County's View. The Mercer countv press has been heard on the results of the recent judicial eloctisn. The Times-Record (republican), of Aledo. says: The retnrns from the judicial lection held last Monday show that Guy C. Scott carried Mercer county by a majority of over 2,000 and that he received 2,663 votes of the S.121 votes cast, including the rejected ballots. While Mr. Scott is a demo crat, it does not mean that the re publicans of Mercor county are shak en in their republicanism. It was aimply an uprising of the people to show their disapproval of the treach ery received at the hands of Henry and Rock Island at the judicial con vention. It bad been known thronghout the campaign that the feeliag among the voters was in tense and that Mr. Scott would re ceive many republicans votes, yet n reiuu was a surprise to every body. Nothing that Judge Connell or the leaders might have done eould have stayed the people. It was a ease where the less said the better. The judicial election dis closed the fact that the people atill think and act for themselves and was a natural outcome of peculiar conditions, just as was shown ia the election of MiKlnley last fall. Poli ticians were totally ignored in both instances. As we said above, it was an uprising of the people to resent the mistreatment and treachery re ceived from men who owed us friend ship for past favors. We hear we are to have nothing in the future they cannot give us less than they have in the put." And the Aledo Democrat re marks: While Guy C. Soott has re ceived a very substantial majority in this county, the result is in no sense a partisan victory, and does not in dicate anything at all ia a political way. Aa is shown by the result, he was supported scnerally by the peo ple of all parties. Mr. Scott said NATIONAL PROSXESSIVE SYSTEM OF KECICIXE.

It is from the Chicago Jour, nal: On behalf of the people of the a. a - a a, state oi Illinois, grateiui to an all wise and merciful Providence for the adjournment of the fortieth general assemoiy, we wouia request tne eov. ernor of this state to set aside a day of general praise and thanksgiving, that the people may return thanks to ioa lor tnose signal mereies He has snown nnto them and for the calam ities He has averted from them dur ing the session of the legislature wmcn.nas just ciosea. We would thank nim: That our masters, the legislators. have robbed no graves (so far as we know). . -That they have stolen no children (so iar as we know). Thtt they have spread no pesti lence (ditto). -That they have done no mnrder (ditto). That they have not sent Martin B. Madden to represent this people ia ine senate oi tne unuea states. .That when Manifold was thrown ont of the senate that Berry might have his seat, the upper honse did not unseat a dozen more and fill their places from the Market street Rog. That when the payrolls were stuffed with venal newsnaoer corre. spondents whom it was desired to nusn up, and when janitors' salaries were assigned to women relatives. the army of tazeaters was not made even iareer. That when bills were introduced to put trolley wires and electric lignt wires underground and to 'reg ulate' insurance oompanies, railroad companies, and otner institutions which had money, to fix the ratea of telephone and telegraph companies ana tne cnarges oi sleeping car com panies, no blackmail was levied on clergymen and Indians. That when the members of the lower house disported themselves like wild hyenas and threw ink-wells at the speaker, the trouble was con fined to their own reservation. That the bill to keep in office for ever the men Mayor Swift appointed oeiore tne passage oi tne city civil- service law was not passed. That the aalaries of Cook county cirenit and superior court judges were not reuuoea irom 97,000 te to,. 000, and the salary of Henry Herta raised to iiu.ouo. as proposed bv Senator Kingsbury. xnat wnen tne salaries of Chicago aldermen were fixed at $1,600 a year they were not fixed at 815,000. mat Chicago was not surren dered to racetrack touts and the whole city turned into another Gar field park. mat wnen dishonest newspaper men were hushed with lucrative isn. itorship there were some honest ones left, and that when these were assaulted for publishing the troth. tney escaped with their lives. That the bills seeking to legalize the gas trust and guarantee it an ab ode to monopoly, did not confer sim ilar favors on every other trust now affiieting the people of this state. That the parka and boulevards of Chicago have not been delivered to Mr. Yerkes that he may build power houses and run oable cars in them. That the people of Chicago have not been sold into slavery to Mr. 1 ernes. That the neoole atill enioT fr- dom of speech and of the press. That the lower house did not fur ther degrade itself and abase the atate by thanking Speaker Curtis, otherwise known as uumboil Eddy. for turning over the chair to a friend oi xerkes while the nefarious Allen bill went through. For these things and more wonld the people give thanks, they would lift their voioes in shouts of rejoic ing, would raise up anthems of praise, they would glorify benign Providence and they wonld solemnly promise mat, naving so merciiuiiy escaped this time, they will never do it again."

He formed the acquaintance of a member of the gentler sex whoee nome was on the other side of the river. It was a case of love with him, and she evidently hade hits thinking that ahe was in the same boat. The courtship continued and he finally concluded that he waa too remote from hia sweetheart. So he moved over to Davenport. Some little legal trouble arose, and to put his finances in a position where they conld not be tampered with by anyone whom he might be indebted to and to likewise prove his faith and confidence in his sweet heart, he turned his bank account over to her. In his industrious aad frugal way he had ssved up $1,800. with which to nmbark on the matri monial sea. All the plans for the marriage bad been diaensaed and de cided on. He was the happiest man ia Hawkeyedom, and was not back ward abont expressing the occasion for his lightbeartedness. His sweet heart was happy, too. Now she is gone. So has his bank account. She is still happy. He has not stopped lo consider what his feelings are yet. He has gone to Chicago, whither he has been in formed his sweetheart and money have flown. The wife of a well-known railroad man played a practical joke on her hnaband. He went out for an even ing spin on her wheel. He tarried at one of the prominent refreshment establishments to moisten his whis tle. His wife came along. She spied the wheel resting against the curb ing outside the saloon. She rode it home. Of course the bike was not there when he came out. He immediately complained at police headquarters. where a description of the1 wheel was recorded. The railroad man hunted high and low, and had the police doing likewise, but no, trace of the wheel could be fonnd. He re turned home tired out. He did not have the courage to tell his wife that he had lost her wheel. ... The next day the papers 'heralded the fact that the bicycle thief had made way with Mrs. Sg-and-So's bike. She read the announcement and smiled. The railroad man came home the next evening all prepared to receive a good raking over. He asked her if she had heard about it. She said she had. "But my wheel was not stolen," she said. Then she told him how it all happened. He admitted that it was a good one on mm. There is a great deal of difference Between the hre alarm boxes and Uncle Sam's letter depositories which are stationed about the city. . Xet a man who has lived in Rock Island for the past 40 years tried to put a letter in the alarm .box at the corner of Seventeenth street and Second avenue the other afternoon. He fumbled all over the box. and when he cojld not find an opening, looked mad and said some words in an nndertone which wonld not look very well in print. He did not yet realize hia mistake. Walking over to the corner of the walk, he sized the box up up again. Then he went and tried it over. Still it would not work. He took off hia hat and scratched hia pate. After working abont five minutes trying to deposit the letter, it aawnea upon him that he bad atopped at the wrong place. Then he atarted to the postoffiee with the letter.

They had bctn discussing that ever lasting servant problem, which can al ways be depended upon to furnish a topio for conversation when three or four women are gathered together. Each had told of Iter experience with her "help," when one of them said: "My new housemaid is the greenest girl you ever saw in your life. Her ig norance is a perpetual source of wonder to me. The day after I got her I went out shopping and told her if any one called during my absence to say I was out and ask hie name. These seemed simple instructions, but I thought she would need them. . "When I returned, I asked if any body had called. " 'Tea, mum; they did,' she replied. " 'Who were theyr :r '" " "They wouldn't tell their names,' she answered. '"Wouldn't tell their names 1' I ex claimed in surpri&e. . '"Yes, mum; but I think one of them, said "bananas" end the other "rags."' . ' "I demanded further particulars. .

Experimented with many others, but never got the true remedy until we used Dr. King's New Discovery. No other remedy can take its place in our home, as in it w have a certain and sure cure for Coughs, Colds. Whooping Cough, etc." It is idle to experiment with other . remedies, even if they are urged on you as just as good as Dr. King's New Discovery. They are not as good, because this remedy has a record of cures and beside is guar anteed. It never fails to satisfy. Trial bottles free at Harti 6. Ulle- meyer's drug store.
