A Trenton, N. J., dispatch carried
by tho Associated Press says: "Mrs.
Florenco Kinney of this city and her
daughter are soon to be reunited
after being apart moro than twenty
six years. When her daughter Mary
was eight months old her mother
took her to New York to see Mrs.
Kinney's sister, Miss Katharine Rice,
who was about to sail for Germany.
When Mrs. Kinney was on the steam
er it was found some shopping had
been overlooked. The , Trenton
woman left the baby aboard while
she hurried off to make the pur-,
chases. Upon her return she found
the steamer had sailed and her sis
ter had been forced to take little
Mamie along. Miss Rice became sq
attached to the baby that after much
pleading through correspondence
Mrs. Kinney permitted her to become
Mamie's foster-mother. The girl,
now the wife of a prosperous Ger
man merchant, did not know until
recently that her mother was living."

Terre Haute, Ind., has a' wonder
fully frank mayor. A Terre Haute
dispatch carried by the Associated
Press, says: "The town is laughing
over 'Gerhardt stories,' some of
which are so unquestionably truo and
characteristic that all similar ones
about the mayor-elect are believed.
'Looio' Gerhardt is a baker, a lik
able German, in whom there is no
guile. He has made public tho list
of appointments to be officially de
clared when he goes into office Jan
uary 1, and it is well understood
that with one or two exceptions his
political backers selected tno men,
Ho met Thomas H. Perkins, slated
as the republican minority member,
of 'his board of safety, in a cafe and
while shaking hands said: 'I don't
believe I met you before.' Perkins,
was dumfounded. 'Why, I am the
man you named ror tne ooard or
safety.' 'Ay, golly said Gerhardt,
'is that so? Well let's shake again.'
A politician told him that one Qf his
appointments was bad, and, in (all
seriousness, he said: "Well, J think.
H; is a mighty bad appointment myr.

'will say a good -word for you.' "

Senator JDolliyer of Iowa delivered
a" speech before the Chicago Press,
club. Mr. Dolliver declared the most
h.opeful sign of the last congress was
not what it did, but the fact .that it
did .not act unanimously. He be
lieved President Taft's attitude to
ward the "insurgents" at the coming
sessions will be friendly. "The time
when a 'skin game' can be worked
on the people, with the, unanimous
consent of congress will never come,
again,' said Mr. Dolliver. . 'When I
am asked why I do not vote with. the
majority I say: 'Not until I have
made a chemical analysis of it.' The
real Insurgents at the extraordinary
session of congress were not the few
men who tried to represent the pub
lic interest faithfully and carry jbu't
the pledges of the party platform,
but the interesting group of private
interests before whose threats to de
feat legislation the leaders of the
party bowed down .for the sake, of
harmony. It will be a queer state
of the public mind when representa
tives of the people are successfully
read out of a party in order to se
cure a solidarity organized around
merely private interests."

A bad breath Is a sort of unspoken
imputation on cleanliness; you can't
get away from it and-. can't explain.
You can tako foolish little remedies

this is suggestive; your breath is un
