A Husband Escaped the Pangs

Most Cases of Incipient Consump

Per una. At the solicitation of a friend I used your remedy and
cheerfully recommend your Peruna to all who want a good tonic
and a safe cure for catarrh. "JAMES A. HANDY.
Prominent members of the clergy are giving Peruna their unqualified endorse

has become so justly famous in the cure
of catarrhal, diseases. It cures catarrn
wherever located. Its cures remain.
Peruna docs not palliate ; it cures.
Mrs. Frederick Williams, President of ,
the -?outh Side Ladies' Aid Society of
Chicago, TIL, writes the following words
of praise for Peruna from 973 Cuyler
avenue, Chicago, 111.:
" My horrie is never without Peruna,
for I have found during the past six
years that there is no remedy that will
at once alleviate suffering and actually
cure, as Peruna does Pour bottles com

called catarrh. It alleviates pain and

Mrs. Edward Stevens
K. Y., writes as follows:
"I now take pleasure in notifying you
that my husband has entirely recovered
from catarrh. He is a well man today,
thanks to you and Peruna. He took six
bottles of your medicine as directed, and
it proved to be just the thing for him.
His appetite is good and every thing he
eats seems to agree with him. Ills
cough has left him and he is gaining in
flesh, and seems to be well every way."

One of the big trusts went up the
flume the other day. The National
Asphalt combine with $52,000,000 of
stocks and bonds in the hands of the
people found that it could no longer
pay dividends and interest, so it asked
for a receiver. That is the road that
all the trusts will go that have watered
their stock from two to three hun
dred per cent.
An old codger in Lincoln, after
glancing over the cartoons and other
matter ir. The Independent last week
concerning the pardon of Bartley, re
marked: The Independent could dou
ble discount old Daniel and then beat
his prophesying." Those who read the
article on the new republican political
boss in this week's edition might bear
that remark in mind.
The dollar of today compared with
the dollar of 1893 is about a 49-cent
dollar. But that is all right 'cause we
got the gold tandard. "Cheap mon
ey" will always produce prosperity if
you only have the gold standard. A
dollar in 1893 would buy ten bushels :f
corn. Now it will buy less than one
ousiif-i. In relation to corn, the dollar
of today is not even a ten-cent dollar.

Shortly after the announcement was
made that Chancellor Andrews had
obtained leave of absence to visit tfce
Pacific coat a story was put in cir
culation to the effect that that was
the first part of an arrangement by
which he would permanently locate

Independent to say that there is not

Mr. K. K. Krikorian, an Armenian
student of the state university, deliv
ered a lecture at All Souls church on
the Turkish atrocities. He was there
at the time and could speak from per
sonal knowledge. After telling how
great congregations of men, women
and children were butchered in the
places of worship and something of
the character of the Kurds and other
Mohammedan soldiers, some one asked
if there were any Armenians in the
Turkish army. He replied very in
geniously: "Oh, no! They are not al

Several cargoes of reindeer have
been shipped from Siberia to Alaska
for use as freight haulers, and also
as food breeders for the natives to
take the place of the caribou, which
are being driven xout into more se
cluded territory The caribou are
somewhat like the elk or moose. . In
1857, a cargo of camels was brought
to this country. from Arabia to be used
in transporting military ,4 supplies
across the American desert country.
They were turned loose and are often
seen in Mexico 'and Arizona.
dismissal without charges ,vand ,vith-'
out a trial was purely an act of des potism.
This t violation ,of law by
the officials at Washington . grows
more and more, every, day, just as The
Independent, said it , would when the
constitution and the . Declaration of
Independence were abandoned, Maclay ,
should have been dismissed long ago,
but it should have, been done accord
ing to law and not in defiance of law.
The Independent receives enough
letters every week indorsing, its policy'
and complimenting the editor to fill
every inch of its space if they s were al!
rrlr.ted, but once in a while some one
administers a regular roast. One of
that sort is printed in this issue. If
it were not for an occasional letter of
that kind, the editor might get "too
stuck up." They are always welcome
and invariably printed.
The old contest between states and
a central power at Washington over-shado-
' lg everything, is on again
only in a new form. It is now be
tween states and the federal judges.
The federal judge has risen tfl be a
mighty power. State constitutions,
legislatures and state courts, he
brushes aside with a contemptuous
wave of his hand. The federal judge
is lord of all he surveys from the
center clear round to. the sea.
The Bee says that "men now in
public life can reasonably expect to
see the bonded debt of the United
States almost extinguished." That is
only a pipe dream. What will the na
tional banks do under such circum
stances? As now organized their very
existence depends upon a "bonded
debt."' They will see to it, if the re
publican party remains in power, that
there is always a bonded debt. But
perhaps Mr. Rosewater anticipates
that the republican party is going out
of power. If it does then his pipe
dream ill become a reality.

Why. don't Bixby sing a little about
the Joe Bartley specks on ' Governor
Savage? Never '. was there sea l
biackerr hogishness or bigger cow
spots on any set of men than on the
leading party republicans for the last
ten years in Nebraska. A black pig
never sees any 'difference between
white and black, neither do the spots
show. Small specks in the eye cover
large spaces in the distance.
Joe Bdrtley, the worthy and most
noted republican, of Nebraska, has
been pulled out. of. -.his workship and
given freedom of the street.. His
friends are now worrying lest he may
take his family to Europe ' and live
on the three hundred thousand that
his wife took there-and. put ; in safe
keeping. It will be a hard blow to
the party if he does it. According to
the Bee, the governor got;a big par
don fee, bigger and-better than a re
election, which he will have, to aban
don. . -
If the editor of the Bee had never
soiled his fingers or pockets with
corruption money , we would have im
plicit faith in his berating, the pres
ent state officers. Whenever he lias
exposed republican corruption he has
done it from personal motives. Had
he been elected senator last winter
everything would have been lovely at
the state house now. There is no
doubt that Mr. Rosewater handled
thousands and tens of thousands of
whisky money in fraudulently .defeat
ing the prohibitory amendment; years
ago. . ' , ,., ., , , '

It was a, silly thing for Depew. to get
married three times in one day. His
divorce bills will be 300 per cent great
er than they otherwise would be.
. Senator Millard is the most careless
of millionaire bankers. According to
his own sworn statement he is in the
habit of indorsing $200,000 warrants
without looking at them.
Depew should now proceed to in
corporate his triple marriage in the
state of New Jersey, issued $3,000,000
of stock, half preferred and half com
mon, and proceed to do business after
the modern fashion.

Some' of the great dailies deserve
credit for printing their exhaustive re
ports of prize fights and horse races on
a different, colored paper from the
rest of the edition. A decent man can

Prof. Heron's socialistic village in
New Jersey did not evolve into the
sort of thing that he expected, so he
has gone to Brussells and will make
that his permanent abiding place. So
cialistic colonies always seem to have
the same ending in the United States.

eral Kaiox knows nothing about such

an equitable system of money, or an
equitable system of taxation." With
that view the editor of The Inde
pendent, heartily coincides.
The tea industry of South Carolina,'
which has been slowly developing for
a number of years, is now assuming
commercial proportions. Speaking of
this, the secretary of agriculture says:
"The production of several kinds of
tea in the United States is now assured,
and in addition to this, it is encourag
ing to note that experts who have ex
amined the tea produced here, pro
iounce it equal in flavor and aroma to
the best imported leaves. The profit
in the crop raised last year averages
from $30 to $40 an acre. In 1900 about
4,500 pounds of high grade tea were
produced, and a ready market was
found for all of it in South Carolina.?

Harrisburg (111.) Register: Up in
Minnesota the state courts are tryin;
to prevent the consolidation of com
peting lines of railroad by enjoinin?
the transfer of their stock, and th
United States courts are aiding th
trusts by dissolving the injunctions.
This shows the difference between
judges elected by the vote of the peo
ple and the judges appointed by a ser

dicates that the federal courts are
packed not only against union labo?,
but against all labor.
A Missing Report : -
"I herewith transmit to the senate,"
wrote President-Roosevelt the other
day, "the report of .the isthmian, canal
commission." The president's letter
was read and then the officials began
to search for the report. There were
rumors that an immense dray had
been started from somewhere uptown
loaded with maps and diagrams and
typewritten volumes. Probably the
stuff, when'it reached the capitol, was
dumped into the cellar. At any rate,
up . to the hour - of going to pi-ess,' It
was still reported missing. , When ' it
is found it, will be printed. There is
said to be so much of' It, however, that
it will take a life-time to read-it
through. " '
Hut it is-not expected that anybody
will ever "read it through." ; It will be
stacked away along, with the eighteen
thousand-page, volumesof the indus
trial commission's report, Where it
will rest undisturbed forever more.
And the people wjll pay the bill.
