As a resident of North Carolina, Sen
ators Overman and Simmons and
Representative Page of that state
saw President Taft regarding it. The
opinion was advanced at the interior
department today that 'Mr. Shaw
probably would be allowed to prac
tice after a reasonable length of
a hole in a new Lincoln penny, and
was sorry about it after ho realized
that ho had mutilated a 'coin of tho
realm' and wrote the following letter
of apology to President Taft: 'Pres
ident Taft, Washington, D. C,
Please find one cent which I bored a
hole in and feel very sorry for it.
Hoping you will forgive me. Yours

Can't Do It
Heart affections will not got well of

active. If the cause is not removed,
they continue to grow in number and
They are the outgrowth of exhausted
nerve force, and the heart can not stop
to rest, as do the other organs, and
must continue to struggle until com
pletely disabled, and that's tho end.
On tho : very first indications of heart

It builds up, feeds and strengthens tho

"I had serious heart trouble, for two
months my life seemed to. hang by a
thread, when my attention was called
to Dr. Miles' Heart Cure. I commenced
taking tho Htiart Cur3 and Nervine,
and In two months they restored me
to comparatively good health."

In a speech delivered in the sen
ate March 4, Senator Rayner of
Maryland poked fun at Senator Bur
kett of Nebraska. Mr. Rayner read
from Mr. Burkett's speech that he
was not vain enough "to hope that
I shall be able to do what Hamilton
and Adams and Webster and tho
mighty Marshall could not do." Mr.
Rayner paused for a moment after
reading these lines. Then, glancing
across the aisle where Mr. Burkett
sat, he said: "Why not?" The
senate burst into a roar of laughter.
A democratic proposition made
March 3 to amend the tariff law
threw the house in confusion and
sent republican leaders scurrying
about in order to control the situa
tion. A bill exempting from the
payment of tonnage vessels stopping
at ports on tho great lakes, having
passed the senate, was taken up for
consideration. Representative Hitch
cock of Nebraska' sought recognition
from the chair with an amendment
providing for a reduction of 25 per
cent in the customs duties on Ca
nadian goods. Chairman Payne of
the committee on ways and means,
taking alarm, proceeded down the
aisle and to the chair of the speaker,
where a hurried conference took
place. Returning to the floor, Mr.
Payne was recognized amid a noisy
demand for recognition by Repre
sentative Hitchcock, who Insisted he
had a prior right, to that slaim.
"From the standpoint of leadership,"
said the speaker, "the gentleman
from New York seems to be tho most
conspicuous gentleman opposed to
this bill on this side." Then, in or
der to head off further activity on
the part of the democrats, Mr. Payne
moved to recommit the measure and
voted with his party to defeat his
own motion, which was done, 110 to
160. The parliamentary status of the
bill was then so advanced that under
the rules there was nothing further
to do except to put it upon its final
passage and it was passed.
