between the Spaniards and
Cubans in Havana Province, with
the odds in favor of the Cubans.
The mere mention of the name

The general consensus of
opinion is that Spain is certain to

Gov. Tanner, of Illinois, is re-

with the striking miners, who are
contending against the reduction
of their wages to a point so low
as to render it impossible for
them to feed their families, much

Japan with the indemnity funds
obtained from China, has a ten-
dency to make that almond-eyed
empire the least bit arrogant and
defiant, which, if not speedily
checked, may result in bringing
about a "twist" with Uncle Sam
Senator Vest, of Missouri, is
charged with being interested in
the organization of one of the
most powerful and dangerous
trusts that has ever had an exis
tence in this country—the
cylindrical cotton bale compress
—which will make an effort
corner and control the cotton
output of Amorica.
Eloquent Joe Bailey, of Texas,
closed his great speech on the
tariff bill, which was passed by
the last congress, as follows:
"If the manufacturers are as
selfish and as prosperous as we
have been taught to believe, then,
sir, it is an unpardonable crime
to exempt them from taxation
and thus increase the burdens of
the patient and unnumbered mul-
titude. I can not find language
strong enough to denounce the
policy that would lift the burdens
of this ' government from the
great manufacturing establish-
ments and lay it with increasing
weight upon the farms. I know
the agricultural people of this
land, and I know their unselfish
devotion to their country. I
know too, that it is true in the
economic as it is in the physical
world that all things rest upon
the earth, and when those who
ultivate the soil are made to
suffer the Nation must suffer
with them. The farmers are the
most useful and the most con-
servative of all our citizens.
Their labor supplies us with food
and clothing, and to them we
turn when the riots and blood-
shed of our citizens render the
future of the Republic gloomy
and uncertain. From the bitter-
ness of class antagonisms; from
the greed of the poor, who would
despoil the rich, we turn to the
rural homesteads of this land and
there we find a rugged indepen-
dence tempered with a reverence
for tho law which constitute the
Nation's best and wisest safe-
guard Around those humble fire-
sides. even in this ago of selfish-
ness and greed, the love of
country is above the love of self
and second only to the fear of
God. A republic which practices
injustice against homes like
those, which multiplies their
burdens and drives their im-
poverished and discontented oc-
cupants to overcrowded towns
and cities invites its own destruc-
I do not plead for spocial privi-
leges for tho farmer. I only
plead in defense of tho demo-
cratic party for having said that
in dealing with this question it
will keep its pledge that none
shall enjoy a special favor nor
shall any suffer a special burden;
but that all shall stand equal be-
fore tho law. To establish and
maintain equal rights of all men
was the great mission to which its
founders dedicated tho demo
cratic party one hundred years
ago, and to which we recon-
secrated it last year. If wo ad-
hero steadfastly and faithfully to
this, the most vital of our princi
plos, the American people will
reward our fidelity with their
confidence by perpetuating for-
ever and forever more this, the
greatest, the freest and therefore
the best government that over
rose to animato the hopes or to
bless the sacrifices of mankind."

Courtesy should be promoted by

addition of "a fine lunch" t<

"The tariff bill has passed but the

The trusts have made two hun-
dred millions of dollars out of it
already; but the poor working-
men who were promised so much
prosperity if McKinley was elect

higher wages. As often as tjie

politicians promise good times to

Dubuque, Iowa, is that of a deaf
and dumb girl named Clara
Kuntz, who is the unfortunate
possessor of a live lizard in her
stomach. The girl can feel it
running up and down her throat,
and at times it nearly suffocates
her. It is particularly trouble-
some in the morning. Friday
while she was eating a piece of
meat it came up, snatched the
meat and dropped back again
Hie doctors attending her have
decided to starve her for a few
days, and then by putting a piece
of meat in her mouth induce the
creature to come out far enough
to be grasped by pinchers. It is
thought she swallowed it some
time ago, when it was very small,
while eating raw cabbage.
Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot reach
tho diseawed portion ot the ear. There is
only one way to cure Deafness, ami that is
by constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamod condition of the
mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube.
VVhon this tube eets inllamed you have) a
rumbling sound «r imperfect hoaring, and
when it is entirely closed Deafness is tne re-
sult, and unless the inflammation can he
taken out and this tube restornd to its norma
condition, hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of tea aro caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condition of
the mucous surfaces.

The Henderson Times asserts
that every succeeding day since
Cleveland was inaugurated
president, in 1893, has witnessed
a greater stringency in money
matters. He who believes that
a gold standard is good for his
country is to be pitied as a kind
and indulgent father pitieth the
ignorance of his children.
