I had always been prejudiced against
patent medicine, but as everything else
had failed I felt Justified in at least
making a trial. :.m
Our good old family physician, Dr.

said If I was determined to try patent
medicines, he would advise me to be

box at a drug store, carried it in my

recover the value of : a" horse which
met his death on the Wabash tracks,
sets up the novel defense that the

News of the Week
The moment that Allison and Ald
"rich got "a tip from London they aban
doned the gold standard theory, voted
for. and made speeches in favor of in
ternational bimetallism. Itv took -a
tip from London, and that was all, to
get them to do it : " ' '
None of the currency tinkering bills
which the Wall street pirates were In
terested in got through congress.. That
was because the democrats inaugur
ated the most persistent filibuster that
has been seen in congress for years.
When the republicans unseated Butler
at the end of the term with about a
week to serve and Installed a repub
lican in his place who lacked 6,000
votes of being elected, the democrats
retaliated by a filibuster against ev
erything. In the fight the Fowler bill
and the Aldrich bill fell outside the
breastworks. Had it toot been for this
filibustering, they would both have
Another stenographer has been ele
vated to a very high and responsible
office in Washington. The private
secretary of Secretary Shaw has been
appointed assistant treasurer of the
United States. Before the appoint
ment to high offices was turned over
to Wall street and the trusts, such
positions were reserved for statesmen
of acknowledged ability. Now they
are conferred on stenographers whom
the trust magnates know will obey or
ders in the future as punctiliously as
they did when occupying confidential
positions as clerks.
1 he silence of the tomb is as the
roar of a great battle when compared
to the silence, of. the great plutocratic
daiHes concerning the passage of the
law to create a commission to bring
about bimetallism and fix a ratio for
silver. If you want the news you
will have to continue to read The
There is a strong movement in Colo
rado for a state civil service law. In
this state through the appointment of
ward heelers to responsible places two
of, the state, institutions, have been
burned down and the rest of them
are run on the political plan.
The democratic senators placed Gor
man back in his old position as head
of the steering committee and leader
for the democratic side. He occupied
that position when the Wilson bill
was mangled and mutilated with ivu
amendments and' made over into a
high protection measure. Gorman is
a gold standard man, a protectionist
and imperialist. Both sides of the
chamber will be under the same lead
ership, that is, led by men holding ex
actly, .the same political principles.
Judge Parker of New York seems to
be out of the fight He has announced
that he would not think of taking the
nomination for president unless he
had the hearty support of W. J.
Bryan. - .
There was a high old time on Wall
street nearly all the week. As soon
as. it was announced that the Aldrich
bill had failed, stocks began to tum
ble and the bank statement proved the
worst for years. Loans were curtailed
and the bears have had it all their
own way ever since. Some heavy,
failures have been announced and
things look black for watered stock
concerns. The Aldrich bill would
have furnished a lot of rag-tag and-bob-tailed
money and credit which,
would have swung things along for a
while, but when the crash came it
would have been all the worse. The
system that the republicans have
forced on this country demands a
continuous and everlasting inflation
to keep it going, which is a manifest
impossibility. , . -
In information that is of Interest to
the common people, The Independent
Is always two months to two years
ahead of the dailies and it seems that
it is generally more than that much
ahead of the ministers in matters af
fecting morals. For four or five years
it has been like the voice of one cry
ing in the wilderness in regard to the
degeneration that sat in upon the in
auguration of the worship of Mam
mon. - Now some of the ministers are
beginning to reiterate what The Inde
pendent has been saying for so long
a time. Rev. George Whitman
preached a sermon in Buffalo, N. Y.y
last week in which he said: "There
is a growing godlessness among many
well-to-do persons. The type of de
pravity among persons in the higher
circles is often worse than in the
slums of the city America is fast
following in the steps of the old Ro
man empire The home is despised;
children are an encumbrance; a poo
dle dog is of more value than a baby.
Wealth and pride consume the life
blood of the nation and aristocratic
weaknesses sap our democratic vigor."
The Independent has said those same
things during the last few years many
The Brooklyn Eagle confirms the
statement made by i he Independent
that an enormous amount of boodle
would be poured into this state to cap
ture the democratic organization and
down Bryan. It says: "The situa
tion in Nebraska is, therefore, regard
ed as favorable to the plans of the re
organizers, who can supply the anti
Bryan people at once with all the
needful" equipment for a powerful or
ganization." Every one who knows
anything of the way plutocratic cam
paigns are fought will have no diffi
culty in coming to a conclusion as to
what the term "needful ' equipment"
means v when used, in this connection.
. The American Window Glass com
pany has closed all its plants and will
not open them until they are furnished
with the new patent machinery which
it is said will entirely supercede

another rise in glass as this is one of
thQ. corapletest trusts in existence. It
is surrounded on every side by a tariff

One day last week Morgan paid a
little over $26,000 for an old book
which had no value at all except that
it was old. The same day one of the
steel plants shut down because the
superintendent refused to pay the reg

bor and the men went on a strike.
