HI ADMIRE HIS HEME.
HI TltE TlUBUNB admires and commendr
3 tlC quality of Ilepn-sentative Wilcox'
Hjfi nerve and coiiscieiitlouunswerving :
B devotion to plain duty in his firm tUm ; < l
H | | on the matter of submission , now tin
Hjf all-absorbing question agitating the pen *
fj pie and the legislature of this common
HI wealth. Despite tempting bribes , per
H sistenu coercion and insistent friendh
Hfe ( persuasion , he stands firm for the un
§ 1 niistakably instructions of his constitu
Hi ency , and all this in the Face of mosi
8 powerful opposition from warm fricnd.-
1 and supporters. His duty is clearand
n Representative Wilcox has chosen t
Ha follow it. His course will meet with the
H sincere apyroval of a large portion of itii-
B constituency , and of all men who ad
H mire manly action under most adverse
B and depressing circumstances.
H Hera's to Senator Lindsay's Health.
H | Senator Lindsay's efforts in the mat
BB ter of submission will endear him to si
1 very large and intelligent and respect
i able element of his constituency. The
jf Senator has taken and ably sustained a
Hj manly and active course in this pro-
M foundly important question , against the
m recognized opposition of powerful
H friends. The Senator has exhibited'
g nobly the strength of his convictions on
T a vital moral question , whiuh entitle.
Bi him to and secures him a strong hold on
jf the hearts of the people of this district
H To show the length to which the
H anti-submissionists will go to defeat the
D submission measure , we have it on
H unquestionable authority that Rkprk
H SENTATIVE Wilcox of this county has
H been made the object of the infamous
H bribe-giver an offer of $500 having
H been tendered him to vote against the
H bill , it is said.
HI Senator Lindsay and Uefresen-
Hl tative Wilcox are "all right" for
H SUBMISSION IT IS AND BY
j REP. WILCOX' VOTE.
P'l Toe question now nutating tlio pcnplc of
Hff Hujes Centre is , ' ( 'an u man be a cheatnui
Hfj' \ / without wearing gnty whiskers ? "

By unique way of inviting * his fellow stnutots to
Hii dinner , und a dinner at ihudistiiiKui-hedsen-
HJI ator's home is sntuethlnj- to be despised
Hb Approachiutr a brother senator the oilier du.\
Hj he prefaced an invitation tiv the query-Have
you trot a clean shin ? " Itioovulent I mm lint-
that the senator sometimes goes ouibiUe bib
n party with his invitations.
Hi The f-qual suffragists have appeared at
HJ Washington , and a committee in the interest
Hb of that movement appeared before the Senate
Hi committeoSaturday , with the warning tbut.it
HJ their demands wete not acceded to , they
HE would renew their importunities for tweiitj
HE years to come. This leads a malicious ex-
HE change to observe : "If these estimable lutliet-
K will only conflue themselves to the United
Hjf States Senate , tbe people will rise up and can
HR them blessed. That body as now constitute * !
B | deserves any fate whicb uiereilebb justice can
B visit upon it. "
K Following the example of tbe attorney
B general of New York in bringing suit against
B tbe sugar trust , it is reported to be tbe iuteii-
j tion of the attorney general of Ohio to bring
H suit in the supreme court of that state to re-
B voke the charter of the Standard OH company
B and tbe Barber Match company , both of which
B organized under * he laws of Ohio A proced -
B ing of this kind would be more generally inter-
Hj esting than that in New York , chieily b > tea-
B sou of the immense power and influence of
R the Stundard company , particularly in Ohio.
B The attorney general is said tu lack some testi
B mony in order to enable him to decide on a
B definite line of action , and it will not bo stir
B prising if bo never flntle the required tebti-
mony. _ _ _ _ _ -
H If physical training is uecssury to secure
H the best types of men , it is equally important
HI as an agent toward securing the fullest devcl-
Hj * ' opment of women. Furthermore , most men
H are engaged in tbe struggle for material gains ,
B and are obliged to confine themselves to ef-
H forts prescribed for tbem by the division of
B' labor. Tbe tendencies of our civilization is to
H warp , twist and belittle men with the stamp
H of their occupation. Leisure for physical cui-
H tureforits own sake can only come with in
B crease of wealth , and this will ever be in the
H possession of thu minority. At the present
H time women as a class have more lelsuie than
H men for self-improvement , and we must look
H to them to help nn the higher evolution or
H mind and body * not only in perteeting them-
j selves , but in helping to perfect others.
H A heading Journal of Calilornin snys that
H the bane or that state has been ppeculHtinti and
H a desire and expectation on the part of loo
H many of its people to get rich Puddenly. This
H spirit has resulted in the creat.on of unhealthy
H "booms" and a selQ h and narrow rivalry
H which has sprung up in competing sections to
H the seriHUS injury of the state at large. The
H state bus agricultural and other resources
H which are adequate to the support or six mil-
B lion people in com Tort and happiness , but
H what is needed there are workers who are wilf-
K ing to earn their bread and wait for the re-
B wards of legitimate accumulation. Tbe col-
B lapse in California proves very conclusively
B that thero can be no endut Ing prosperity with-
B ont honest toll , and that tbe growth of * any
B state is dependent upon the efforts of those
B who have the patience to apply themselves to
H the development of the resources uhieh na-
B ture has provided , and which nothing but la- '
B bof can render available.

One of the inoit interesting features of
Christian service in this country Is the work of
the railroad branch of the Young Men's Christ
ian association , which is now located and in
aetlvo operation at niuty-three Important rail
road centres lu the United States and Canada.
This work has enlisted the sympathy of rail
road managers to a remarkable deirree. and in
many cases tlio corporations contribute band
• somely to the support of the work , furnishing
rooms and equipment , and pat lug the salaries
of secretaries from their regular pay roll. The

the railroad employes are thus "ell provided

BriKvn : I had just the same experience , until I read one of the
Ivory Soap advertisements , about too much alkali in some soaps ,
which draws the natural oil from the skin and leaves it dry and lia
ble to crack , so I sent out and got a cake of Ivory Soap , and found
it all the advertisement promised ; my hands are soft and smooth the
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are rmny white soaps , each represented to be "just as good as the ' Ivory' j"
they ARE NOT , but like all counterfeits , lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of
the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.
