James Schoolcraft Sherman of Utica, N. Y.,
nominee on the Republican ticket for vice-president,
was born October 24, 1855, in Utica, N. Y.,
vhore he still resides. He has been a member
of the national house of representatives since
1886, with the exception of one term, 1890-1892.
He was chairnian of the Republican national
congressional committee in the campaign of
190tí. He is a lawyer, banker and manufacturer
and is the business as well as the political lead
er of Utica, being president of the Utica Trust
and Deposit company.
Mr. Sherman was educated in the Utica
academy and Hamilton college, being graduated
from the latter institution in 1878. He was ad
mitted to the bar in 1880 and at once took an
active interest in political affairs. In 1SS4 he
was chosen mayor of Utica and two years later was elected to congre. s.
For years he has been regarded as the best parliamentarian in the lower
house, has been frequently mentioned as a candidate for the speakership. He
was a formidable opponent of David B. Henderson when the latter was first
elected sneaker. He has acted as chairman of the committee of the wholev
through many a turbulent battle in the house, and, according to his friends,
has shown his ability again and again to preside over the United States
He has been chairnian of two New York state conventions. In the work of
the house he has distinguished himself as chairman of the committee on In
dian affairs and as one of the most influential members of the interstate and
foreign commerce committee.
Henry F. Cochems, the Milwaukee lawyer
who placed the name of Senator La Follette be
fore the Chicago convention as a candidate for
president, did it in a speech that startled the
delegates and made a marked sensation anions
the old-time Republicans' who were not accus-
'if j"v"' j tomed to hearing the same sort of political doc-
. " inS-líaC 1 trine expounded in G. 0. P. conventions. For
Cochems is even more of a radical than the
I man he introduced, and in telling why the Wis-

occasion to point out a good many things in the
political, and official world that he thinks need
fixing up or cutting out.
Cochems is something of an unusual figure
in politics over in Milwaukee. He was a famous
athlete in the days when he was in the state
university of Wisconsin, and made an especially notable name as a halfback
on the eleven. Then, when he went to Harvard heived up to his reputation
by smashing a few athletic records while he was at the same time complet
ing the three years law cour.se In two years.
Since he returned to practice law in Milwaukee he has been active in
politics. He was assistant district attorney for several years, and made a hct
campaign for congress two years ago, being defeated. He has always been
a stanch supporter of La Follette, and nominated him for governor in the
convention of 1898. wheu Cochems was only 23 years old,
In his nominating speech at-Chicago Cochems declared that conservatism
in political affairs had come to mean stagnation, and asserted that the re
forms which have made Theodore Roosevelt's administration notable and
popular were all advocated and strongly urged by La Follette long before
Roosevelt was made president. -
J. Frank Hanly, governor of Indiana, church
worker, temperance advocate, lodge man, poli
tieian, who placed Mr. Fairbanks' name before
the Chicago convention for the presidential
nomination, has been much in the limelight dur
ing his career.
Gov. Hanly was largely responsible several
years ago for the passage of the bill making it
an infraction of the state laws to smoke, sell
or give away a. cigarette or even to be found
with the materials for making one in one's pos
He has a record for dogged persistence-that

the age of 10 he left home, walked over into Indiana, took to the woods with
an ax and has made his own way unaided. ,

missed being chosen. He presided over the Btate convention in 1900. Mr.

A Cold Lurch.
The pupils of a distinguished pro
fessor of zoology, a man well known
for his eccentricities, noted one day
two tidy parcels lying on their in
structor's desk as they passed out at
the noon hour. On their return to
the laboratory for the afternoon lec
ture they saw but one. This the pro
fessor took carefully up in his hand
as he opened his lecture.

examine the gastrocnemius muscle of

In Bad Case of Eczema on Child
Disease Had Reached a Fearful
State His Order Resulted
in Complete Cure.
"When I was small I was troubled
with eczema for about three months.
It was all over my face and covered
nearly all of my head. It reached
such a state that it was just a large
scab all over, and the pain and itching
were terrible. I doctored with an able
physician for some time and was then
advised by him to use the Ciiticura
Remedies which I did and I was en
tirely cured. I have not been bothered
with it since. I used Ciiticura Soap
and Ciiticura Ointment but do not
know exactly how much was used to
complete the cure. I can safely say
that Ciiticura did a lot for me. Miss

ingly, it is not claimed that Syrup of Figs

known value, but one of many reasons
why it is the best of personal and family

after effects and without having to increase
the quantity from time to time.
It acts pleasantly and naturally and
truly as a laxative, and its component
parts are known to and approved by
physicians, as it is free from all objection
able substances. To get its beneficial
effects always purchase the genuine
