IT IS MIGHTY CLOSE
THE VOTE ON PRESIDENTIAL ELECT
ORS IN KENTUCKY.
80 tb Republican State Chairman Confl

Partle Are Still Claiming Wyoming.
Louisville, Nov. 9. The following
statement was given out last night
from the Republican headquarters:
"Practically complete official returns
give McKlnley 444 plurality in Ken
tucky, unofficial advices indicating
that the four missing counties will in
crease rather than decrease these fig
ures. The Republicans elect four mem
bers of congress and a Judge of the
highest court of the state for an eight
year term, and by the filling of va
cancies have secured a majority of two
In the general assembly on Joint ballot,
which insures a Republican successor
to Senator Blackburn. The total vote
In the state will approximate 425,000,
an increase of 70,000 over last year's
vote and 25.000 more than the highest
estimates before the election. The Re
publican vote increased about 40,000
over Governor Bradley's vote a year
ago, which was 17,000 higher than ever
before cast in a presidential election,
and the Democratic vote was 29,000
higher. These figures will give some
. Idea of the intensity of the political
struggle through which Kentucky has
Sends the Major and llanna the New.
This is signed by Samuel J. Roberts,
chairman of the Republican state com
mittee, who also sent a telegram to
Chairman Hanna containing the pith
of the foregoing and another to President-Elect
McKlnley, which is as fol
lows: "Kentucky, for the first time In its
history, has been carried by the Re
publicans in a presidential year. Aft
er four days of anxious watching and
waiting the official returns today show
that you have carried the state by
about 500 plurality. Four years ago Ken
tucky gave Cleveland 40,000 plurality
and cast 23,500 Populist votes. The
fusion of Populists and Democrats this
year was complete, and our victory
means a reversal of 64,000 votes based on
the figures of 1892. On behalf of Kentucky
Republicans and thousands of patriot
ic Democrats who Joined in our com
mon cause permit me to congratulate
you on your great victory and the
breaking of a time-honored, record In
Kentucky. As a former townsman and
devoted admirer for twenty years it is
scarcely necessary to add my personal
' Republican Senator from Kentucky,
Frankfort, Ky., Nov. 9. There is no
longer any talk of the Republicans
uniting witht the gold Democrats on
Carlisle, Breckinridge or any other
Democrat to succeed Senator Black
burn. All negotiations and talk to this
effect were based on the probabilities
of another dead-lock. Now that the
Republicans are confident of a major
ity on Joint ballot they state that a
Republican will be elected senator.
Governor Bradley, Congressman Hun
ter, St. John Boyle and others are
mentioned for the place.
i BOTH STILL CLAIM WYOMING.
Democrats Say They Have Bryan Returns
The Republican Dependence.
Cheyenne, Wye, Nov. 9. Chairman
Blydenburgh, of the Democratic state
committee, yesterday received return
from the Jackson Hole precincts, Uin
tah county, giving the Republican state,
electoral and congressional tickets 27
and the Democratic ticket 64 votes.
Complete returns were also received
by the committee from Johnson coun
ty, showing an average Democratic ma
jority of 163. Returns were also re
ceived from one-third of the precincts
In Big Horn county, showing decided
majorities for the entire Democratic
ticket. Chairman Blydenburgh now is
certain that the entire Democratic elec
toral, congressional and state ticket is
elected by majorities ranging from 200
It is estimated by the Republican
that returns from 1,200 votes are yet
to be received from Big Horn county.
As this section is almost exclusively
devoted to sheep raising it is claimed
by the Republicans that its returns
will give the state to McKlnley without
, ILLINOIS RETURNS.
McKInley's Plurality Is 138,710 and Tan
ner's Is 112,845.
Chicago, Nov. 6. According to the
latest figures received at Republican
and silver Democratic state headquar
ters, the McKlnley plurality in the
state is 138.716. That of John R. Tan
ner is 112,845, 25,871 behind the Mc
Klnley vote. All counties in the state
except Clark have been , heard from,
and the reports at the two state head
quarters differ but little. McKInley's
plurality outside of Cook county is 71,
180. According to Republican reports,
Tazewell county takes Its place among
the country's curiosities by giving Mc
Klnley a majority of one vote over
The Republicans will have a major
ity on Joint ballot in the general as
sembly that meets at Springfield next
January, larger than it has had for
many years. The senate is easily two
thirds Republican, and the Republic
an majority in the house approximates
twenty.- Outside of Cook county the
combination of silver Democrats and
Populists seem to have held its own.
MEMBERSHIP IN NEXT CONGRESS.
Table That Shows 201 Republicans, 124
Democrats and 10 Popullxts.
Washington, Nov. 6. A table pre
pared by the Associated Press from the
telegraph returns up to last midnight
shows the election of 201 Republicans
to the next house, 124 Democrats, 19
Populists, fusions and Independents (a
number which perhaps chould be
slightly Increased, as a few of those
classified as Democrats have Independ
ent leanings). Some districts are in
doubt, and no attempt has been made
to include Washington and South Da
kota and three districts In Texas in the
list owing to the meagre and confiltt

South Dakota a Tie ou Electors.
Yankton, Nov. 7. At 10 o'clock last
night South Dakota's vote on presi
dential electors was tied, and an of
ficial count will be required to deter
mine the result. The Republican man
agers have closed their office with the
above declaration. They say any claim
of the Populists that this state is for
Bryan is not Justified by the returns.
Corrections and changes In three pre
cincts not yet heard from may give
the electors to either Bryan or McKln
ley. Republican congressmen and gov
ernor ran ahead of the electors by sev

The Vote In Michigan.
Detroit.Nov. 6 The total voteof.Michl
gan appears to have been, in round
numbers, 485,000, of which for gover
nor Pingree received 275.000; Sligh, 205,
000. Pingree's actual plurality has In
creased to 70,300. McKInley's is about
16,000 less, on. account presumably of
tho "Bryan and Pingree" votes, which
shows that a considerable element
which favored Bryan also voted for
Pingree. The legislature is now esti
mated to stand as fellows: Senate, 28
Republicans; 6 fusiofiists; house, 80 Re
publicans, 20 fuslonlsts.
FARMERS' NATIONAL CONGRESS.
Some Points President Clayton Would Like
New Legislation Upon.
Indianapolis, Nov. 11. In his opening
address to the Farmers National con
gress President Clayton said: "There
are some questions, some of which in
volve the highest Interest of our indus
try, upon which we might ask congres
sional consideration. Among them is
to be found the readjustment of our
tariff laws affecting agricultural prod
uct The importance of the employ
ment of expert civil engineers to Inves
tigate the practicability of the reclam
ation of the arid and semi-arid district
by water storage and irrigation. Re
vision, amendment and the better en
forcement of our laws restricting trusts
and combinations organized to control
the price of farm produce. The amend
ment of the Inter-state commerce laws
so as to entirely prevent unjust dis
crimination against places or persons
in the shipment of freights; and to pro
vide for a board of arbitration for the
settlement of industrial strikes.
"The enlargement of the department
of agriculture to the dignified position
to which it belongs, and to grant to the
department of such appropriations as
will enable It to make full investigation
of our trade relations with foreign
powers respecting he importation and
the exportation of farm product. The
enlargement of free mail delivery in
the rural districts. The readjustment
of our national and international mon
etary system by the congress of the
United States and by a monetary con
ference with civilized nations that will
establish an International system of
both gold and silver as lawful mon

our great industry."
A paper by Judge William Lawrence,
of Ohio, discussed means whereby the
Farmers National congress can be

of non partisan legislation. He
urged through organization on be

At the conclusion of the discussion of
Judge Lawrence's paper John G. Offut,
of Indiana, offered the following reso
lution which was referred: "Resolved,
That the Farmers National congress is
in favor of the equal use of both gold
and silver coin as money of ultimate

incoming president of the United States
to call a conference of nations that are
willing for the use of both gold and sil

ratio to be agreed upon."

Death of an Iowa JurUt.
Des Moines, la., Nov. 10. Ex-Chief
Justice W. E. Miller died at his home

He was a member of the supreme court

and published a code of Iowa which
became a standard work.
Ceylon's Little Oxen.
One of the greatest curiosities among
the domesticated animals of Ceylon is
a breed of cattle known to the oologlst
is the "sacred running oxen." They
are the dwarfs of the whole ox family,
the largest specimens of the species
never exceeding 30 inches In height.
One sent to the Marquis of Canterbury
in the year 1891, Which is still living
and is bellved to be somewhere near
ten years of age, Is only 22 Inches high,
and weighs but 1091? pounds. In Cey
lon they are used for quick trips across
country with express matter and other
light loads; and It is said that four of
them can pull the driver of a two
wheeled cart and a 200 pound load of
miscellaneous matter sixty or seventy
miles a day. They keep up a constant
swinging trot or run, and have been
known to travel 100 miles in a day and
night without either food or water. No
one knows anything concerning the
origin of this peculiar breed of minia
ture cattle. They have been known on
the island of Ceylon and other Bud
dhistic countries for more than a thou
sand years. One story told to account
for their origin is to the effect that
they were originally cattle of the ordi
nary height and bulk; that a Buddhist
priest was once Imprisoned in a stone
building one-half of which was used
as a cattle stable. During the night
he managed to dislodge one of the
stones In his prison walls. The stone
In question was exactly 2l feet square.
It was almost daylight when this apos
tle of Buddha felt the air rush through
the opening he had made, and realized
that he was all but free. Ha knew that
he would be unable to get out of the
enemy's country on foot, so he prayed
that he might be provided with a beast
of burden that would safely carry him
to tho homes of the followers of Bud
dha. No sooner had he done this than
one of the large oxen which had been
quietly feeding in a stall at his side
walked leisurely to the 30-inch square
opening and miraculously passed
through it. The priest followed and
mounted the now sacredly dwarfed
oxen. Indian Agriculturist.
LengeTlty of Uses.
C. Davenport says in Gleanings:
"One summer I had a strong second
swarm issue from a large box hive. I
do not remember the date, but it was
just before basswood blossomed. The
queen of this swarm was lost, on her
mating trip, or in some other way, for
I am certain that they did not have a
laying queen at any time during the
summer. I thought I would let them
do without one, to see what they would
do. They were hived on combs that
contained considerable honey, so they
did not have much room to store below;
but they filled up what room there was,
and then, Instead of working much in
the sections, they took the world easy
In the fall I thought I would unite what
few of them were left with some other
colony; but on coming to examine them
I was surprised at the amount of bees
there was left. There seemeM to be
nearly as many as when I hived them;
so in order to experiment further they
were put in the cellar where tho rest
were. They came out in good shape in
the spring. A queen was given them;
and although they dwindled away very
fast, they pulled through all right.
Now, in this case the workers lived
at least ten or eleven months, not only
a few, but thousands of them. If tho
same thing had been tried the past
summer I do not think there would
have been a live bee left after they had
been in the cellar a month."
Why Bees Work In the Dark.
Bees go out all day gathering honey
and work at night in the hive, building
their combs as perfectly as if an elec
tric ligjit were there all the time. Why
do they prefer to work in the dark? is
often asked. Every one knows that
honey is a liquid with no solid sugar
in it. After standing, it gradually as
sumes a crystalline appearance, or
granulates, and ultimately becomes a
solid mass. Honey has been experi
mentally enclosed In well corked flasks,
some of which were kept in perfect
darkness, while the others were ex
posed to the light. The result was that
the portion exposed to the light soon
cryctallzed while that kept in the dark
remained unchanged. Here we see
why the bees are so careful to obscure
the glass windows which are placed in
hives. The existence of the young de
pends on the liquidity of the saccharine
food presented to them, and if the light
were allowed access to this, it would,
In all probability, prove fatal to th'e
inmates of the hive. Ex.
Confinement of Swlne. Confinement
is not conducive to healthfulness and
lack of exercise prevents a proper de
velopment of the body, making it much
more susceptible to disease than when
the animal is given a wide range and a
variety of food. We hear a great deal
of late in regard to producing bacon for
the English market and fault is found
with our corn fed hogs because they are
usually too fat It is an old adage that
"there are none so blind as those who
do not wish to see" and the fact Is plain
to those who understand the situation
that no meat we can produce would bo
acceptable to European nations. The
pork produced In the corn belt of
America from hegs raised on a clover
pasture mid finished on corn is not to
be compared with that made In Europe
from all kind3 of swill and refuse, fed
in a filthy sty. There is not and cannot
be better or rcore delicious pork pro
duced on this rlobe than that made
from grass awd corn when the hogs are
properly handled, and this fact taxes
to the utmost the greatest of European
statesmen to circumvent its production
among their people. Ex.
SIX MEN LOST IN THE GALE.
Tint One of the Crew of the Waukesha All re
and lie Saved Uucousclous.
Muskegon, Mich?, Nov. 9. The schooner
Waukesha broke up while trying to ride
out the gale at anchor here Saturday
night, and only one survivor of her crew
of seven has been rescued. He is still too
weak to talk. At 3 o'clock Saturday after
noon sho was Blgbted running with the
galo under a torn mainsail. An attempt
was made to enter Muskegon harbor, but
the schooner drifted a mllo south of the
piers and then the anchor was dropped.
She was riding three-quarters of a mile
from shore at dark. The englnocr and
fireman of the city pumping station
watched the lights until 9 p. m. Saturday,
when they disappeared.
Shortly afterwards wreckage began com
ing In, and Sunday nothing could be seen of
the lost boat. All night long wreckage con
tinued to come up on the beach, and five
bodies have been recovered. The names
of the dead cannot be learned, as nothing
about their clothing will identify them.
The surviving sailor was washed ashore
Later. Last evening Frank Delach,
the only survivor of the wreck, re
gained consciousness and made affidavit
to the effect that there were seven men
aboard the Waukesha, Captain Duncan
Corbett, the mate, four seamen and a
colored cook. When they arrived off
Muskegon, Delach said, the captain

"The prisoner Ella Castle will be re

That Mr. Castle was at the prison as

Few women realize the influence exerted
on their bodily and mental well-being by
the special organism of their sex. It is hard
for them to believe that the little drain
which goes on from day to day is sufficient
to sap away the very life forces. Yet it is so.
The weakness, exhaustion, melancholy ; the
periodical prostration and sometimes almost
torture has no other cause, two-thirds of the
time, than the abnormal unhealthy condi
tion of the generative organs. Strangely
enough even doctors often fail to recognize
the truth, For this condition there is no
other remedy in the world so helpful and
certain as Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription.
It restores health and vigor to the feminine
functions and renewed vitality to the entire
body. It heals inflammation, stops dis
charges, strengthens the ligaments and
builds up the internal tissues which cannot
be reached by "local treatment." It is of
inestimable value to young women and to
prospective mothers, greatly lessening the
pains and perils of childbirth if taken dur
ing pregnancy. During the "change of
life " it is invaluable.

Our representative investigated another
case, and it adds another link to the long
chain of evidence that has set Owoaso talk
ing. Mrs. Fred Townsend is the lady who
speaks here. Our representative found her
at her place of residence. No. DID S. Shia
wassee Street, and she said:
" Doan's Kidney rills have taken all the
pain out of an aching back for me. ' I was
greatly troubled with a pain and distress
across and low down in my back. - It was
weak and ached constantly, any exertion or
work rendering it worse. I would be forced
to lie down, and then could find ease only
in one position. I had read . about Doan's
Kidney Tills, and got a box at Johnson &
Henderson's drug store. They worked
exactly as I had been told they would. I
have not suffered from a lame back since,
and have, recently done things I could not
do before without bringing on severe trouble.
I can now take long walks without any bad
effect to my back. I know what to take
now if backache should return at any time.
You are welcome to use my statement in
any way you wish."
In these times when backs are lame, when
almost every other one we meet lias now and
then or all the time a back that aches or
pains "a weak back," "a bad back," a back
that makes their life a misery to bear and
still they go on day by day in pain and suf
fering. Now, 'tis the easiest thing in the
world to give this played-out back " a blow "
that will settle it and put in its place a new
one equal to any. It's just like this: Hit at
the cause; most backaches come from kidney
disorders. Reach the kidneys, Btart their
cloged-up fibers in operation ; when this is
done you can eay good-bye to backache.
There are many grateful people in Owosso
who can tell you how simple a trick it is.
