"Will there be any candidates for con

"There are likely to lie several candi

"Well, Holt is a big county and ought

Popularity of Protection.
The natural impulse of our people is
for protection. Every election in which
-the issue has been distinctly made be
tween free foreign trade and protection
for domestic industries has proven that
the demand for the former is the voice of
a minority, and the maintenance of the
latter is the fixed determination of the
majority of American voters. Even
Hut bmnch of Um fiftieth congress
which, under the guidance of selfish lead
er, suicided by passing tins Mills bill
went up from the people with a majori
ty committe to protection. A knowi
edge of Uieee facts will account for the
inconsistent pleas of those who still find
it for their interest to join with foreign

uitiiewnii-uiinui prox;riy, nor the in
crease of taxes, nor even the ruin of phy
sical health, nur the loss of life which
most impresses the mind of the thought
ful observer of inebriety. It is the ef
ftwt of this vice upon the character of
men, as it is exhibited to him, day by
day in his ordinary intercourse with
them. It is the spiritual realm that its
ravage of strong drink are most ter
rible. Body and mind are so closely related
that when the one suffers tlie other must
share the suffering, and tlie injury of the
physical health"resuRing from intemper
ate drinking must, therefore, lie accom
juinieiriiy 'similar injury to the mental
and moral iwwers.' But the inclination
of the popular thoughtjis'so'strongly to
ward the investigation of physical phe
nomena, that the spiritual consequences
are often overlooked. Degeneration of
tissue is more iwlpable"' than degenera
tion of spirit; a lesion of the brain more
startling than a breach of faith; hut the
deejier fact, of which the senses take no
note, is the more important fact; and it
would be Veil. if thelLttentiohof, men
could lie lixed upon it.
The phenomena to which we have re
ferred often report themselves to the
quickened jierceptions of those who
stand nearest to' the'.habitual drinker.
Many a mother" observers, with a heart
that grows heavier day by day, the signs
of moral decay in the character of her
son. It is not the flushed face and heavy
eye that troubles her most; it is the evi
dence that hisund .is becoming duller
and fouler, his sensibilities less acute,
liis sense of honor less commanding.
She discovers that his loyalty to truth
is somewhat impaired; tliat he deceives
her frequently, without compunction.
This effect is often oliserved in the char
acter of the inebriate. Truthfulness is
the fundamental virtue; when it is im
paired the character is undermined; and
strong drink makes a deadly assault up
on him. Coupled with this loss of truth
fulness is that weakening of the will
which always accompanies chronic alco
holism. The man loses, little by little,
the mastery over himself; the regal
facultlesare in chains. How many of

with alcohol that its functions are im
perfectly performed and them is a r.e
ceptible loss of mental power and of
moral tone. The drinker is not con
scious of this loss but those wh

perceptions are less keen, bis judgments
less sound, his temper less serene, his
spiritual vision less clear, because be

quite elastic. The term is stretched U

the life of its rarest fruits. The drinking
habit is often defended by reputable gen
tlemen to whom the very tliought of a
debauch would lie shocking, but to
whom if it were only lawful, in the just
and tender solicitude of friendship, such'
words as these might be spoken: "It is
true that you are hot drunkards, and
may never be, but if you could know,
wnat is too evident to those who love

losing the firmness of its texture and the
Oneness of its outline; how your art de

The laws of health are taught in tlie
schools; but not in a way to be of
much practical benefit and are never il
lustrated by living examples, which in
many cases might easily be none. If
some scholar, who had just contracted a
cold, was brought before the school, so
that all could hear the dry, loud cough
and know its significance see the thin
white coating on the tongue and later.
as the cold developed see the profuse
watery expectoration, and thin watery
discharge from the nose, not one of
them would ever forget what the first
symptoms of a cold were. The scholar
should then be given Chamberlian's
Cough Remedy freely, that all might
see that even a severe cold could be
cured in One or two days or at least
greatly mitigated when properly treat
ed as soon as the first symptoms appear
This remedy is famous for it's cures of
coughs, colds and croup. It is made
especially for these diseases arid is the
most prompt and most reliable medi
