Yes, and when the returns are in, Gest and the republican state committee will be a mightily fooled lot. Mr. Neece will retain his seat in congress by an in creased majority. Monmoltii AVjiVkv Dr. Baker, who hails from the sand-hills about Keiths burg, addressed a ' Baker's dozen" of hearers in Monmouth last week in the in terest of Mr. Gest. The doctor is an in ventive genius and can adapt his politics to all times, all circumstances and all par ties. Two years ago be was hot for Neece, and some years before that was just as hot for Holloway. This year he is for Gest and "revenue only." Who he will be for two years hence depends upon the man who puts uo the most swag.

Actini! Secretary of the Treasury Fair chiki says: "When the administration of President Cleveland began, some very wise prophecies, prompted of couise by partisan motives, were indulged in to the eff-iot that the reductiou in the public debt which had been maintained for so rainy years would abate, if it did not stop. The fact : is, notwithstanding enormous outlays for pensions, river and harbor improvements aud other extraor dinary disbursements, the net decrease of the debt for the eighteenth monlhs since President Cleveland was inaugurated has tieeu $135,000,000, or about .7. 500,000 a month. From March 31 to September 30 'if the present year the debt, less each in the treasury, has b?eo reduced $50, 5'JO.00AI. Tue decrease during September was $10627,013. The average duriug the six months I have been acting has lieen about $8,500,000. Daring the last two months we have paid $8,000,000 on account of the Alabama claims. That reduced the monthly average about $1, 000,000, not counting other heavy ex penses. Had it not been for these ex ceptional disbursements we would have crossed the $10,000,00(1 line for amoulbly average. I do not think our pessimistic opponents could have done better than that." Bitter Bread. Complaint is frequently made by those who use baking powders that they leave in bread, biscuit, or cake raised by them a disagreeable, bitter taste- This taste follows the use of all impure baking pow ders, and is caused either by them con taining alum (introduced to make a cheap article), by the impure and adulterated character of other ingredient used, or from the ignorance of their manufactur ers of the proper methods of combining them. These baking powders leave in the bread a residuum formed of lime, earth, alum, or other deleterious matters, not always, though frequently, tastable in the food, and by all physicians classed as injurious to the health. The lloyal baking powder is free from this serious defect. In its use no residuum is left, and the loaf raised by it is always sweet, light and wholesome, and noticeably free from the peculiar taste complained of. The reason of this is because it is composed of nothing but absolutely pure materials, scientifically combined in ex actly the proper proportions of acid and alkali to act upon and destroy each other, while producing the largest amount of rising powder. We are justified in this assertion from the unqualified statements made by the government chemists, who after thorough and exhaustive tests re commended the "Royal" for governmen tal use because of it superiority ovr all ethers Is putltj, m! strength,, sfid Whole somenesat There t no danger of bitter bread or Biscuit where it alone a used, THE FIRE AT EASTPORT, ME. ' One Hundred Families Rendered Home- leu The Property Lom. Portland, Me,, Oct. 18. The terrible fire which devastated Eastport Thursday has been entirely extinguished by ft heavy rain.

Many fa dory bands who lived in boarding-houses were burned out. Every tenement-bouse in town was crowded before the fire, but tbey are packed to overflowing now. Friday night many persons had to sleep out doors on mattresses. Veryuttie provisions or clothing were saved, and many families are in sore distress. The mayor of Calais has telegraphed an offer of aid, and the ladies of that town are cooking, and col lecting clothing. MARINE DISASTERS. Dozens of Sailors Drowned by the Sink ing of Hoats.

A consultation t tween the packers and Representatives Barry and Butler of the Knights of Labor was held at ArmourV office Friday. No definite con clusion was reached and bat little progress toward a settlement of present difficulties was made. Mr. Armour, on behalf of the packers, mad a statement to the committed, in which he explained the high seale of wats paid by i.mcago parsers onu the utter impossibility of continuing the bus. news here unlesna r turn to tho ten-hour basis was effected. Mr. Barry, on the part of the committee, said t hat since be had heard the statement of Mr. Armour he felt satis tied that matters had KNICBT BVTt-IB. been misrepresented to the committee, and that he regretted the ordering out of the beef men. However, they were out now and the strike was on, and he did not see that anything could be done to rectify mat ten at present He spoke at some length on the in justice done t he men and the people of the town of Ijike by the quartering of Pink erton's men at the stork yards, and asked thnt they be removed. Mr. Armour replied that neither the gov ernor nor the sheriff had funds on hand to spend in guarding private property, and that, in view of that fact, the packers had been compelled to place their own guards about their property.

The remaining pork and beef packers announce, in a card to t he (HiMie, that they are equally responsible The packers say : All statements and rumors that Armour & Co., are standing in the way of or in any manner opposing an amicable solution of the question at isue are entirely without founda tion. The discrimination against Armour & Co.'s drHssed-teef buwness hy the ordering out of their beef butchers is "equally unjust and unreasonable, as their competitors. Messrs. Kwift & Co. and Mrris & Co., are fully in accord and sympathy with t he ten hour systt-m. The precautions for guarding the property of the packers have been greatly inereaed. In the town hall are a score of cots on which the regular police sleep. Telegraph wires lead to each of the packing -houses, and night and day an operator is ou duty. The watch men at the pacJcmg-houses report by signal to the telephone ottiee every half-hour, and the patrol wagon crew is ready for dcty at a moment's notice, Klec trict bghto have been hung thronghout all tho alleyways and il luminate every nook and corner, turning the darkest night into the brighh'st day. Last, but by no means least, in the protective. meaffiire, is the Tinker- capt. Foley. ton force. Their kirracks in Washington Butcher's Sons' packing-house present the appearance of a military camp. A 11 through the dav and night sentinals armed with their Winchester rifles pace up and down the alleyways and tracks which surround it. There is an entrane to the packing-bouse across the tracks, but this is guarded by a sentinel, who orders the would-be-visitor around to the side gate. Here another sentinel paces slowly liackwnrd and forward and liars the entrance, passing the word for the sergeant of the guard. That worthy finally makes his apearance and es corts the visitor through a courtyard sur rounded on three sides hy the brick walls of the packing house, in which an "awkward squad" is constantly being drilled in Cpton's tactics, into the building. On the third floor are the barracks proper. Hundreds of can vas cot are standing in lmg lows, while long tables are set with tin cup and plates and spoons and bone handled knives and forks. The men off duty lay around and while away the time reading the papers and telling stories. Over in one corner is a plain board parti tkn, over w hich is a sign bearing tho word "Headquarters. " Through the door is a slit marked "Letter-Box" and a time-card bear ing the time of the arrival and departure of the mails. Inside the little box-like structure Capt Foley and the adjutant are located, while a clerk is busy writing at a small table. The floor is carjt! with empty canvas bags, and the apartment contains four cots for the captain, clerk and adjutant. Lieut.

It is understood that tlie Finkerton army is being recruited, and that the force will be largely increased en Mon-lay. The boycott is rapidly extending in the town of Lake. The balouukctvrs on Hal sted street refuse the use of their watering troughs to Armour's teanisters. A delega tion of the strikers waited upon all the butch ers who came for their regular supply of meat, and informed them that after Friday it was not in good style to patronize Mr. Ar mour. The drivers of coal wagons for Ar mour's were stopped, and, after a brief con sultation, turned around and drove in tlve op pos ite direction. A few cattle were slaughtered in Armour's new house (Saturday forenoon, protwbly to drill the new butcliers. The impression prevailed that Armour would start up Mon day with a full force of imported nivu. An other batch arrived on the Lake bhorc dummy Saturday morning. Several wagons loaded with bread for the men employed at Armour's were sent out from the city. Tliey reached Forty-second street, where a crowd of strikers threatened to kill them If they proceeded further. Tlie drivers became frighted, turned their wag ons about, and returned to the city. William Bmith, a teamster employed at Bilberhom's, was sent with his team to H ai sled street to g-rt a load of bedding for tlie guards et that house, lie was stopped a Bmerald avenue by a crowd and badly beaten and returned without the bedding. The non-union carpenters and coal-beavers employed by Armour, probably about fifty in number, stopped work Saturday morning and joined the ranks of the strikers. THEY DON'T DRINK.

Mrs. Gar field and her family have gone to live at the Mentor farm where, sho say, she can find more peace and comfort than anywhere else. Before she went tliere the house on the fane was remodeled and added to. Still, it wot much too small for tho equipments of the city bouse, and a few days ago a private sale was held, at which a great many things were dis posed of at fabulous prices. During the un settled period Grandma Garfield went to her old home at Solon, a village twelve miles from town, and near Hiram college, where ber boy was taught and taught others. The uld lady is pestered almost to sickness by au tograph hunters, and will attend to them no more. She is strong and very clear of mind, as of old. Since the removal of Mm liar field to Mentor grandma has rejoined her. One reason why the house on the farm was enlarged was the need of a room where Presi dent Garfield's effects and papers could be placed. These have all been arranged with the utmost care, and placed in systematic order. The articles in the memorial room of the Prospect street house have also been re moved to a specially built room in the Men ton home, and a rare collection of tributes from nearly every state in tho Union, and from nearly every civilized nation in the world, it is. Mrs. Garfield's father, Mr. Zeff Rudolph, is with her. He and grandma are nearly of the same age about 83. Harry Garfield is at home. He has just return! from St Paul's school, near Concord, N. H., where he has been teaching. James R. is studying law with Judges Boynton and Hale, of this city, and is going to make a good, and, perhaps, a great lawyer. He is a close student, and has his father's retentive and legal mind. Molly is with her mother at Mentor, but often comes to town. She is president of the McAU Mission society, an organization for missionary work in Paris. Mrs. Garfield looks well, but lives very quietly, and retains her garments of black. She gave $50,000 far the Prospect street house, and has only, as yet, been offered 46,000. Cor. Cleveland Leader. A Tale of tho Eighth Missouri. "The Eighth Missouri were good fighters, said Theodore R. Davis, as ho stopped mak ing the smoke of war with his brush long enough to whiff the smoke of peace out of an attenuated cigarette, "and what they wouldn't steal, except my colors and pipe, was not' down in the articles of war. Why, once at Vicksburg they stole a grave. There was really no good place there to bury a body, except on tho levee, and the ground there was so hard that the grave diggers had a tough time of it. Well, it happened one day that one of the Eighth diod a natural death, and while the boys were wondering what they should with him a detail from an Ohio regiment filed out to dig a grave for one of their number that had passed over. The Eighth looked on to some purpose and when tho Ohio boys came out uext day with their dead they found the grave filled up and a cracker box lid at the head with 'Sacred to the memory of of the Eighth Mo.' But they were good fighters. Minneapolis Journal Coolluf Down an Angry Pugilist. Mr. Pat Shcedy has, and always has had, a remarkable mlluence over Sullivan.

Accoutrements stKRild be kept at the stations, and each officer should have his saddle, blanket, bridle, sabro and pistol belt. Those things should be inspected, and be always ready for use at an instant's notice. !t is the opinion of ourrorrwpondent tliat all the horses of the citv should be at the disposal of the police in times of great civil commotion. The Current France Not a Commercial Nation. Tile truth is that France Is not intrinsically a commercial nation; it is on artistic one. The natural genius of the French runs to writing novels, painting pictures, composing lnusic and not to driving Isirgains. Here, t-ontrawise to the rule that holds in America, commerce is not an end in itself ; it is simply a means to the enjoyment of life. Here art is as it ought to be every here4he summit of the people's aspirations. Sidney Iuka hi Inter-Ocean. Fenr found of lad on Hla Foot. A surgeon of this city, who makes a Imsf oe of straightening crooked spines ami bandy legs, and oilmg rusty joints in the old and young, received the other day day two viators from the country. They were father and son. The boy, some 14 years old, limited painfully, drajrgimj his right leg like a stick across the room, and when he sat 'down arranging it like a prop in front of him. 'tt'mte swelling? queried the surgeon. Yaas," said the father. "Dick wus throwod down stairs by his nurse w hen he was a baby, and he hasn't got over it yet Wovms to be getting worse every day. What fan vou do for him, doctorr The surgeon picked up the boy's useless Coot, and let it drop with an exclamation of 5urprSP- What makes it so heavy?" "Heavy t" echoed tho father. "Why that ain't heavy. Only four pounds of lead." 'Four pounds of load!' An cxpresMoa of liain and pity settled on the surgwn's face as he looked from father to son and back again to the father. The latter hastened to ex plain: "Why, doctor," be Vegaii, "the boy's been woartng that on his foot ever since he could get about, and it hasn't ever done him one bit of good. That leg aint a quarter of an inch longer than it was a year two years tigo. And Dick's getting weaker all the time, and " "I should say so weaker yes. Wonder ho fcn't dead. What put that into jour beau:" "Tlie leadH "Yes, tlie lead." "Why, dmt they all wear it?" "They? It? What do you meanr "The cripples people with white swelling ont tbey carry lead weights in their thick soled shoes to stretch tho leg back to its right lengthr The surgeon was too angry to make reply. He turned his attention to tlie boy, examined his deformity, cut the lead from tbc shriveled foot., and, sending for a shoemaker, ordered Crispin to talte the cripple's measure for the lightest of cork soles. Hick sat in the office till the shoo was ready, and then hobbled out with a light heart and a lighter foot "That man ought to be made to carry a mill-stone for ten years, muttered the aur geon, as be turned to his next patient New York Tribune. , We can, without hesitation, eay that Dr Bull's cough syrup has given the best s&usi&cuou. we have sold au immense amount of it during the past winter.

Jatu Ex -Gov ernor Alexander U. Stephens, und have been postal clerk on d liferent railroads since 1868. ;For ten years'! have been a sufferer from a cancer on my face, which grew worse until the discharge of matter became profuse and very offen sive. I became thoroughly distrusted with blood purifiers and pronounced them humbugs, as I bad tried many without relief, Finallv I was induced to use B. B. B. which was about the 1st of February, and continued its use until the latter part of April. The offensive discbarge de creased at once and the hardness around the cancer disappeared. It improved my general health and I rapidly Rained flesh and strength. The discharge gradually decreased and the cancer became less snd less in size until nothing remains except a scar to tell the tale of a once danger ous cancer. Alt who bave seen me since I bave commenced the use of B. B. B. bear testimony of my great improvement, and the scar on my lace shows that it cured the cancer. I find that B. B. B. comes squarely up to what it is rccom mended, and I cannot say too much in praise of this wonderful medicine,' I have tried them all, but B. B .B. stands at i the top as a blood purifier. The above is copied from the Athens, (Ga.) Banntr'-Wtitcftnum, bein the vol untary language of Mr. Jan.es A. Greer, I "Mr. Greer is an honest, upright citizen ; of Athens, who bad a bad cancer, and his numerous friends thought that be could not live very long, as the cancer was gradually sapping tbe foundation of his constitution, but now looks well and hearty." Z AUAirlST lo. Several physicians have pronounced my disease blood poison, caused by paint or lead in tbe paint, but they could not cure me. Last summer I used eighteen bottles of a largely advertised blood nmdi cine, which did me no more good than so much water. I have used only two bottles of B. 15. B. and am proud to gay that I have re ceived greater benefit from them than from the eighteen, and nm now rapidly recovering. There is no question about the superiority of B. B, B. over all blood remedies. 215 Heynnlds street. W. H. Woody. Augua, Oa., April 21st, AU who desire full information about the rauso and cum of Flood Poisons.
