" When three monttiH old our boy waa

one of tho advertisements of IIood'H Bar

Medicine had failed to help him In tho

Tlin monetary commission resumed
it sittings In Washington today, after
a recess of two weeks. Tho gentlemen
ompasing this commission believe
that there is going to be a big financial
light started in congas soon utter that
body assembles, although many shrewd
politicians among the politicians are
working to prevent the lliiauclal issue
being raised in congress, hocnuso of
their doubt as to whether any leglslu
lion of that character can be put
through dining the life of tlin present
congress, mid fearing that a .sharp
drawing of linaiiclal hues in congress
will result in barm to the tepitblicans.
Cue of the main object! of the mono
tarv commission is to insist Hint tbcic
shall bean attempt at liuaiieial legisla
tion at tho coming session tif congress
and that the attempt shall he recom
mended by President McKinloy ami
be pushed by the whole power and
inlltioiii-e of the administration. The
lines uie already being manned out.
antl the prediction has been made that
the liuaiieial light in congress will he
the hlttetest ami most exciting since
the Force bill was before congress.
The lighting will be mostly in tho sen.
ate, as it will bo an easy matter to put
auy Vill supported by the president and
Spi'aket Meed through the house. It
is assumed that auy bill proposed by
those who arc pushing this movement
will lie antagonized by the silver men
in the senate, ami as thoy control that
body by a slight margin it roiiuios no
prophet to say that it will he ditlicuit,
if not impossible, to pass any sum
measure in the senate.
If there is any reason why any set of
men in Washington should hold a
inoetlug for the pttrposo of ratifying
tho nomination of a candidate for
mayor of Now York City, it is not ap
parent to the eye of an ordinary indi
. vltlual. But reason, or uo reason, the
single taxors of Washington and vi

ous held a meeting and proceeded t

Voting the New Ballot.
Considerable discussion has arisen
lately concerning tho proper method
of uiarkitiK the new ballot so us to In
dicate the voters intention correctly.
Tho new ballot contains the complete
ticket nominated by each party side
by shlo instead of grouping the candi
dates for each olllco, and oneJi ticket
is headed by fho appropriate putty
emblem, and tho duty of tho straight
party voter is .simple and easily per
formed without, possibility of mistake.
Ilo hit"-" simply to placo n cross within
the circle at the top of tho ticket, indi
cated by his party emblem. Hut the
opportunity ottered the independent
voter hceius not so obvious to a great
many people, and it. Is important that
Independent voters be informotl hinco
that element has come to bo a domi
nant power in our politics. Wo sug
gest that every Mich voter, antl every
voter in fact, ascertain bofoie lie goes
to llio polling places just how he can
iieotirutoly e. press his voting iuten
tioii upon tlie ballot. As we read the
law the voter who desires to voto for a
majority of the nominees upon one
patty ticket ami for a minority of
nominees upon another or other nnrtv
tickets, Im may place Ills mark at the
head oft lie ticket for which ho wishes
to vote generally, antl then placo an X
in the space opposite tho sovorul
candidates upon other tickets for
whom ho wishes to voto. If tho voter
doo.H not tlosiro to nignify his choice of
a party upon the ballot ho mav nlaen
an X lu tho spaoo opposite tho name
of each candidate for whom lie wishos
to voto regardless of tho party tlokot
upon which tho iiamo appears, ami
this is true as to groups of ;cantlidates
as well as to slnglo names. It will pay
independent as woll as straight votors
to study tho now law carefully.
Notice, to Toaohors.
Notice is hereby given that I will ox.

To YotTit of Horn Skxks: Come
now, let Fancy lend us over the Ileitis,
bated of their crops. It is a human
privilege to think, anil we tlo not half
live unless we live in order to think,
anil most of us will not half live unless
we think in order to live. With this
slight digression lot us turn to the bare
Ileitis. One thought at least we must
take away. The winter is to me a typo
of old age, for then do people live on
the crops gathered in autumn after a
summer of attention following a spring
of seeding. That is old ago exactly a
time for feeding on the stores of
memory. Jdttle food in winter means
much hunger, cold antl suffering. Lit
tie of wise, kind, noble action antl
thought to look back upon, means an
old age of nagging regrets, empty
hands, and shrunken, chilled heart.
Come now, thoto is no escaping that
conclusion. Every day is adding to
your store of old-age memories What
are they to be? Firm grains on which
you can feed, or husks and oil -scour-lugs

Let us venture on another thought:
You cannot name a step in tho wholo
history of a crop that is unimportant.
What about plowing It must he sea

fertilizing? Suited to tiiesoil antl the

available seed. And as forctiltivating'
Life antl vigor are only brought by ap

spring-time to endanger winter stoics
by lotting the happy years of joyous,
wholesome youth, become mere catch

Yet no Held is tree entirely from

ur heads in the spring-time of life
without the accumulation of mental
weeds. The ttluuf thing is to recognize
the itiffcieuec between them and the

cultivate, cultivate," persistently
covering the foul growths so that they
do not choke the good. You have been
