Aa epidemic of Doer sympathy ap
pears to be spreading over the country
and U raging in aad out of congresa.
It may bo said to bare started with
Senator Halo's somowhat sensational
speech in which ho oxpressod a belief
that niuo-tonUis of the people of this
Asountry were in sympathy with the
Boors. Then camo Sonator Allen's
rosolution asking for information as to
why tho state department doc!ini;tl to
rocognizo a properly accredited repre
sentative of tho Transvaal republic,
wbioh was adopted by tho senate afior
it was amended ho as to luuvo it to tho
-liscrotiou of tho president whether tho
iaformatlou should bo glvon or not.
Itrouohc'ri Its Iilgh6. point hh Monday
in Washington, when n big "Door detail
onatrntinu" was held nt which speech'
o worn made by, Alien, Hnlo Mason,
nnd others. Because a man happens
to bo a member of congress, does not,
of eourso pi event hlin from having the
samo sympathies as other men, but
many question tho pood taste -of their
participating in a publio demonstra
tion against a nation with which tho
country is on tho most friendly terms.
Those who bavo watched tho pro
ceedings in congress for tho last ten
days havo onjoyod tho spoctaolo of the
democrat and popocrats wriggling
around in search of solid ground upon
which to build a campaign platform.
In this porforraanco they havo not all
kept thoir tempors. In fact they bavo
at times lambasted oach other, while
tho republicans sat back and enjoyed
tho fun. With S owart protesting
against tho stand on tho Philippine
question, Slbloy ridiculing tho position
of tho party on silver, and Tillman
kicking ovor tho traces on tho trust
question, thoio is littlo happiness in
homo of the alliod forces of reform.
Wo havo boon asked several times
of lato who would bo a good man for
mayor next year, and who was going
to be the next mayor. Our answer
has gonorally boon that wo know noth
ing about it. It is about timofortho
pooplo of this town to awaken to tho
fact that an enterprising, onergotio
and progressive city council enn do
considerable toward tho upbuilding of
a town. In fact it lies in their pow
er to either advanco tho town or allow
it to remain indolent. This has boon
too much tho caso in tho past fow
years and as a consequonco Ked Cloud
has dropped behind tho standard of
hor sister cities. Tho namo has boon
dropped out of tho public eyo and wo
aro isolatod. The people evon soom
to havo become imbued with tho idea
that "all things como to him who waits"
and havo boon patiently waiting. Tho
quicker this idea is discarded and tho
pooplo roalize that if wo want anything
wo will havo to ruttlo to got a now
entorprlso boforo some other town
gobbles it up, just so soon will our
forward progress commonce. Tho
time for progression and oxpansion
has arrivod and the question is will wo
progress and cspaud, or will wo sit on
our haunches aud let tho procession
go by? Now 1b the accoptod tlmo.
Thero is one thing wo would liko to
urgo upon our citizens and upon tho
city authorities, aud that is tho neces
sity of cloiuiing up the rubbish piles,
mud holes, etc., that infest n number
of our back alleys. With our alleys in

authorities tako some striuguut meas
ures to cleau up this dirt, slop aud

fow miles from us, and tho health of
tho community demands that some
thing ho done. If no bettor can be
bo done, lot tnu city employ tho neces
sary men to olean up and burn or haul
the filth away. Tho taxpayers aro
certainly entitled to somo protection
from disease, and under present cir
cumstances, with smallpox infesting
every pnrtof tho country, wo think no
one would object to the city authori
ties using some of tho money usually
used In grading tho streets to clean up
these piles of rubbish aud tilth and
burn them, which i' about tho only

What W Eat.
Is intended to nourish and sustain
us, but it must bo digested and asaimi
lattd before it can do this. Id other
words the Boarlihaaeat contained' la
food must be separated by the digest
ive organs from the waste natter aad
must be carried by the blood to all
parU of the body. We believe the
reason for the great benefit so niaay
people derive from Hood's Sarsaparilla
lies in tbe fact that the medicine gives
good digestion and makes pure, rich
blood. It restores the functions of
those organs which convert food lato
nourishment that give ' strength to
aervea aud muscles. It also cures dys
pepsia, scrofula, salt rheum, boils,
sores, pimples and eruptions, catarrh,
rheumatism and all diseases that have
their origin in impure blood.
What Do the Chllieea Drink.
Don't givo them tea or coffee. Have
you tried the uow food drink calted

Incidents of Every Day Life Which Very
Few People Stop to Think About on
Account of Their Littleness.
The weather thn past week has been
conduslvo to spring fever. Tho cold
snap caoght a number of hard coal
stoves enjoying a lay off. As one of
ur correspondents remarked last
week it was warmjand frosty. Warm
during the day and frosty at night wo
suppose ho meant. How would you
liko to he tho ice man? The weathor
is not very conduslvo to his goniality.
He is not tho only one who would
liko to havo tho mercury drop. Sev
oral other pooplo bavo holes which
they aro wishing woro tilled with tho
crystal cakos. Thoro is plenty of timo
yet beforo tho first of March. How
fortunato that tho tiro in tho opera
houso block should occur when no
performance was being given. Can
you imagine what would havo been the
result had tho hall boon full of people
whon tho alarm was turned In. If you
want to seo how poeplo live at-home
just tako in tho crowd at a fire in tho
early morning. Thero aro 6omo peo
ple too infinitely small for any mo.
They waut the editor to roast tho neigh
bors for them and then tako a licking
if tho noighbor hnppons to got mad.
Others think tho editor should writo
them up onco in a whllo and sond a
papor to eaoh of their rolativos
as it makes them think ho is som o one.
Other are always giving nowspapcrs
tho dickons bcoauso thoy don't have

while and still they never givo tho edi
tor a chanco to say anything about
them. We are offered pretty big in
ducements to start a gossip'column nt
times. Such a column would indeed
be inlerosting at times. Wo conld just
put a hoad on It "Common Every Day
Lies." There is a class such a column
would bo particularly appropriate to.
That is tho parties who go around
peddling stories which otnrtoutwUh
tho words "Thoy say." Thoy never
tell anything on thoir own authority.
Thoy cannot ovon toll who "Thoy say"
is. The parties who usojthis ss a start
er aro generally tho biggest liars and
gossips tho community sports. They
simply uso it to slatidor thoso ngalnst

Fire la the Opera House Block.
Fire was discovered in tho law ofllco
of Deputy County Attorney L. S. Wil
son, over Mizer's grocery store, last
Tuesday morning about 8:80 o'clock,
aud an alarm was at onco turned in.
In an iuciedibly short time tho liro de
partment had two streams of water on
the Humus aud it was soon extin
guished. Tho Hro is supposed to havo
originated from a pan of hot ashes
which had boon left in tbe coal and
store room adjoining the office rooms
of Mr. Wilson, and was first discov
ered when it had burned through the
floor, and the smoke was pouring
through the corrugated iron ceiling
into the grocery room of H. V. lliaer
below. The building suffered saVall
loss from fire, but considerable from
water. Mr. Wilson's law 'books and
papers were considerably smoked and
water-soaked, but hit damage was
small. Mr. Miter Is tho hoaviest Idsor,
as tbe volume of water turned into the
rooms above ran through the coiling
as it would through a sieve, and such
of his stock aa was not c trried nut was
thoroughly drenched, and being of a
perishable character was considerably
ruined. Mr. Miser's loss is partially
covered by insurance, and the insur
ance on the building will fully cover

No Tortun Equal to the
ItclHni and Burninc of
This Fiarfol Disease,
Eosema which is more than skin-deep, and can not be reached by loeal appli
cations of ointments, salves, etc., applied to the surface. The disease itself,
tho real cause of the trouble, is in the blood, although all suffering Is produced!
through the skin; the only way to reach the disease, therefore, is through'
Mr. Phil T. Jones, of Mlxersvllle, Ind., writes:
"I had Ecsema thirty years, and after a great deal
of treatment my leg was so raw and soro that it gave me
eonstant pain. It finally broko into a running sore, and
began to spread and grow worso. For the past Ave or
six years I have suffered untold agony and had given up
all hope of ever being free from tho disease, as I have
been treated by some of the best physicians nnd have
taken many blood medicines, all in vain. With little
faith loft I began to tako S. 3. 8., and it apparently
made tho Eczoma worse, but I knew that this was the
way the remedy got rid of tho poison. Continuing
S. B. 8., tho sore hoalod up entirely, the skin became
clear and smooth, and I was cured perfectly."
Ecsema is an obstinate disoase and can not be eared by a remedy whish If
only a tonic. Swift's Specific
S. S. S. FOR THE BLOOD
is superior to other blood remedies because it cares diseases which they oaa
not reach. It goes to tho bottom to the cause of the disease and will euro
the worst case of Eesema, no matter what other treatment has failed. It is
the only blood remedy guaranteed to be free from potash, mercury er any
other mineral, and never falls to cure Ecsema, Scrofula, Contagious Blood
Poison, Cancer, Totter, Rheumatism. Open Sores, Ulcers, Bolls, etc. Insist
