The .Republican Rumpus In Illinois
The fight between the Yale-Hop
kins-Lorimer machine and the opposi
tion faction in the republican party
is growing more bitter day by day.
It is claimed that Senators Culloiu
and Mason are working together t
defeat A. J. Hopkins, the Yates ma
chine candidate for senator. As a
evidence of this the Fulton county
Ledger calls attention to the fact that
postmasters in counties in its locality
which stood by Yates and Hopkin
are failing to secure reappointment
Postmaster John R. Camp, of Bush
nell, had to step down and out be
cause he had said kind things
Yates and Hopkins in his paper.
W. H. Hainline, editor of the Ma
comb Journal, was reappointed post
master at Macomb, but the price of
his reappointment was that he should
oppose the state administration and
Hopkins, and he is working overtime
to fulfill the promise.
The republican organization
Schuyler county indorsed Dr. liar
vey for reappointment as post
master of Rushville, but-the county
indorsed Hopkins for United States
senator, and Harvey was unable to
secure the influence of Senators Cut
lom and Mason in his behalf. Th
senators nave recommended a man
named Trumble to succeed Dr. liar
The postmasters of Pittsfield and
Mattoon stood bv the state adminis
tration in the recent republican state
convention and they will lose thei
positions in consequence.
And so it goes all along the line
The warring factional leaders of the
republican party it seems have de
clared war to the'knife.
It is no wonder that members o
the requblican party who are no
spoilsmen are disgusted with condi
tions that exist. The republican
politicians and leaders in Illinois are
a bad lot according to their own tell

DAILY SHORT STORY
The Case of Tiny ,
"Tell me; doctor, how It Is that you
are working into such a splendid prac
tice. Is it natural adaptability for the
medical profession, scientific attain
ments or hard work?"
"It Is neither of these. My start
came from the faculty of adapting my
self to my surroundings."
"On being graduated from the med
ical college I found it advisable to act
for a time as house surgeon in a prom
inent hospital. I applied for a vacant
position of this kind where the exam
ination was said to be very severe and
several young doctors had failed. I
was told that they all knew too little
about medicine to satisfy the commit-
tee. I made up my mind that they

The result was that I passed with fly-
Just as I was about to leave the
hospital for general practice I was call
ed one day to go at once to the house
of a maiden lady who took great -In
terest in the hospital and was on the
board of managers. The lady met me
in the hall with the exclamation: ;
'I fear she's gone.' ' !
The patient is'
Tiny. Come quick.' And she led
the way upstairs to a bedroom and to
a crib In a corner. I love children and
have made their ailments my specialty.
Therefore I was pleased to have an
opportunity to help a child. Miss Mur-
chison went to the crib, turned down
the clothing and exposed a poodle!
Overcoming my disappointment and
a repulsion i nave always ic-it at see
Intr a dog treated as a child, I held the
poodle's paw, took out my watch and
'Oh, doctor, Is there any hope?
" 'Tiny Is suffering from a tubcrcu
losity of the left ventricle of the intes
tines. Formerly she must have died.

saved, but I must take her to my of

I took Tiny to my office and In an
hour sent word to Miss Murchlson
that she was out of danger. This was
the truth, for the dog was dead
'Tatlents calling on me the next day
were told that I had an important case
on hand and would not likely be at the
office till evening. I was hunting a
dog that looked so much like Tiny that
Miss Murchlson would not know the
difference. I left my practice for three
days to go to the dogs, but did not find
mate for the deceased till the after
noon of the third. She was a fat little
beast, and It would never do to send
her home after so serious an operation
In so sleek a condition, so I put her on
auarter rations till her bones looked
for all the world like 'the ribbed sea
sand.' Then I sent word to Miss Mur-
chlson that she was quite recovered
and as soon as I could get a little flesh
on her bones I would send her home.
A request came back to send her at
once, so I took her myself.
"Miss Murchlson shed tears over
Tiny's condition. The dog's appear
ance indicated clearly that I had had
b&rd struggle to save her life. I
dreaded Ie6t the lady should discover
some difference -between the old and
the new. and she did.
"Why, doctor, she exclaimed, how
came that black spot on her stomach
where it was pure white?
" That, I said, taking out a magnify
ing glass to gain time. 'Oh, I see!
That's where the incision was made.
The skin was removed at that point,
and frequently after such removal the
hair grows again in a different color.'

question was repeated, I bad solved the

you know, is so like a human
'She is, doctor, and your apprecia
tion of this fact must have been of
great advantage in her treatment."
'One disappointment Is In store for

one. Tiny's memory has been im
