Columbus, O., Nov.- 14. Thursday
was Thurman day in Ohio and Demo
cratic politicians from more than half
the States of the Union journied to
Columbus to pay their respects to that
Nestorof Democracy, Allen (. Thurman,
on the occasion of his 77th birthday.
The eyes of tho country were on Colum
bus and its central figure, tho Old Ro
man, whoso rugjjed honesty has likened
him to those patriots of old who placed
the public welfare above considerations
of self. To no retired statesman of
recent times has come such a flood
of universal good will and loving
sentiment. The list of distinguished
visitors and those who have procured
Beats at the banquet tablo is not com
posed exclusively of Democrats. There
are many Republicans hero from Ohio
nd elsewhere who come, no; as par
tisans but as citizens, to show their ap
preciation of tho public service ren
dered by Judge Thurman.
The most notable arrival was that of

is disabled in the linn of duty instead
of opening tho way for the promotion
of juniors it may and often does actual

Cleveland was accorded a splendid re
ception upon his arrival. A largo crowd
of people enthusiastically cheered him
as he stepped from tho train. He was
driven to the Governor's residence,
where breakfast was sorved. The pub
lie reception to ex-Prosident Cleveland,
announced to take place in the Gov
ernor's oOlco from 11 a. m. to 1 p. m
was taken advantage of by thousands of
At the conclusion of the reception at
the capital the ex-l'resident drove to
tho 'residence of Judge Thurman and
congratulated him on the anniversary of
bis 7tth birthday.
At the banquet hall tho decorations,
perfected under the artistic hands of
qualified workmen, wero a marvel of
imposing beauty. It was just 8:15 when
ex-l'resident Cleveland and Judge
Thurman entered the room. They
were arm in arm, the President support

ther assisted by a cane, walked slowly
up the halL A' mighty cheer went up
Irom a thousand throats as "the audience
caught sight of the two distinguished

every man arose from his seat and
waved the traditional red bandanna
handkerchief in honor of the Old Ro
man. With di?nitv. vet smilintrlv. Mr.

At the conclusion of the banquet Mr.
John J. Lentz, chairman of the Thur

to order and delivered the address of
welcome. He was followed by Joseph
Ji. uuthwaite, the toastmaster of tho
simultaneously 1.000 people rose to
their feet as the toastmaster concluded
his remarks with the words: "To the
health, long life and continued happi
ness of our guest Applause. The ap
plause which had greeted the toast was
renewed as the "Old Roman"
rose to respond. It swelled from
applause to cheers, from a
mild acclaim to a deafening
roar, and 1,000 bandana handkerchiefs
were waved frantically in the air. It
was five minutes before the cheering
which greeted the toast subsided suffi
ciently to enable Judge Thurman to re
spond. Tho inspiration of the occasion
caused his massive frame to regain all
its old-time vigor.
Mr. Thurman spoke feelingly, ex
pressing gratitude for the demonstra
tion made in his honor. In conclusion,
referring to the fact that his name had
been mentioned as a candidate for the
Vice-Presidency in 1S02, he said:
' Let me say to you. In a'.l sincerity and with
out the least mental reservation, that I am not
nor shall I ever again be a candidate for office.'
1 have been sufficiently honored by my party
and neither ask nor desire any further honor
than continued friendship and good wiU."
Ex-President Cleveland was heartily
cheered on responding to the toast "Cit
izenship in America."
Don M. Dickinson responded to "The
Democracy of the Future;" William T.
Wilson to "The House of Representa
tives;" Judge R. A. Harrison to "The
Early Ohio Bar;" Thomas Ewing to
"The Democratic Party in Relation to
Future Public Economy;" ex-Senator
McDonald to "The Senate;" W. C P.
Breckinridge to Democracy In Amer

to "The Press."
At 2:10 a. m. the banquet closed amid
the greatest of good cheer, the band
playing the "Star Span;l4 Banner,

'Humbug f Of course it is. The so-called
science, of medicine is a humbug and has
been from tho time of Hippocrates to the
present. Why tho biggest crank in the In
dian tribes is tho medicine man."
"Very frank was tho admission, especially
so when it came from one of tho biggest
young physicians of tha city, one whose
practice is among the thousands, though he
has been graduated but a few years," says
the Buffalo Courier. "Very cozy was his
office too, with its cheerful grate fire, Its
Queen Anne furniture, and its many lounges
and easy-chairs, lie stirred tho lire lazily,
lighted a fresh cigar, and went on."
"Tako tho prescriptions laid down in the
books and what do you find? Poisons
mainly, and nauseating stuffs that would
make a healthy man an invalid. Why In the
world science should go to poisons for its
remedies I cannot tell, nor can I find any
one who can."
"How does a doctor know the effect of his
medicine?" ho asked. "He calls, prescribes,
and goes away. The only way to judge
would be to' stand over tho bed and watch
tho patient. This cannot bo done. So,
