the policeman for a few minutes
until the alledged farmer gave the
cop a tip that he was supposed to

Weluesda3' morning Constable
Joh.n Mctiuire was informed l3' a
member of the fauiiK' of Christ K11
gl eking that his nephew. Charles
JCngleking.il lad of about iiintccu
3'ears of age, was t'ing tokiM him
self and for McGuire to come and
take him in charge. Mr. McGuire
at once started for the ICngleking
farm and found the I103' standing
out in the pasture. He started to
go up to him but the bc3 started
for town with McGuire close in
pursuit. He made a direct line for
the Christian church and suceeded
in gaining an entrance to the cloak
room wliere lie stooped and
resolved never to leave. When
een 03 an Kcho reporter he said
that he wanted to die and was not
going to leave the church until he
was dead. He said that lit came
from Germain' about eighteen
months ago and had lived with his
uncle every since. He would talk
Ireel3' in his broken way but in-
isted that he wanted to die and the
obs mingled with bitter tears that
ran down Ins pale and delicate
face was indeed very sad. Dr.
Hobbs was summoned and had him
removed to his office where he was
placed 011 a cot and given stimu
lants. As near as we can gather
the facta concerning his demented
ness is that he is an exceeding'
bright youth but of a weak con
stitution and he had overworked
himvelf 1)3- da j' and sat up at night
stud3'ing his books until he had
broken down b3- over taxation of
the ph3'sical and mental organs.
Constable McGuire took him to

examined 1)3' the count3" board.

Hoyd says about it as laken from a
telegram to the State Journal:
"L (iovernor Hovd takes issue
with Hon. John ('. Watson relative
to the 4-ucstioti of electing a suc
cessor to (iovernor Thayer this fall.
Speaking of the matter ln-ilay In
said: 'La.-t winter I looked up the
whole (j'.Hstion, having in view
recommending to the legislature
the pas -age of a law to meet just
such a condition as now e xists in
this state. In my opinion there is
not the shadow of authoi il in the
state constitution for holding a
special gubernatorial election. On
tile rout i-1 1-3 the constitution ex
pressly prov ides that when tin can
didntc ( l.cted oil the face of the
returns is lur any reason disquali
fied and i. declared to be disqual
tied, tin- old governor shall hold
over. If the republicans go ahead
and hold an election the3' will
simply make fools of themselves.
The only remedy is 13' changing
the constitution, and ol course that
cannot be done soon enough to
meet the present contingency."'
"Lieutenant Governor Thomas J.
Majors did not hesitate in declaring
that the elect ion would be a farce

The Cannes of headache are many.
Some grave headaches are due to cere
bral disease meningitis, tumor, absee.-s.
softening of the brain. In these eaes
there will be other symptoms pointin -
to the cause. Other causes are overt ill
ness of the blood vessels, caused by thu
condition of the heart; a plethoric con
dition of the body; mental excitements.
Such cases are marked by a flushed face,
glittering eyes, a beating in the ears and
giddiness on stooping.
It is imagination, rather thaA reaon.
that distinguishes man from brute ; and
no person who is devoid of imagination
can know extremes of happiness or mis

faculty for forgetting.
So age is so old fashioned as child
hood. That childhood was happy may
be on of the illusions which is fostered,
if not engendered, by lapse of time. Of
the happiness of second childhood there
can be no question.
