so that there should question as
to his appetite. The tramp , either
through ignonrace or .malice afore-
thouirhtduir up all the .potatoes and
neatly piled the vines. The tramp got
his breakfast on the strength of his
proud intentions , but the next time Col.

Govkhxoi : HoLfOMB has received the
letter , made public through the press ,
referring to Tennessee ' s generous do
nation of a block of mar.ble intended
to be used in making n statue of Abra-
iiam Lincoln. This was the purpose
[ or which it was donated to the state
jf Nebraska by the state of Tennessee
Lhrouirh Governor Turner. It comes
is a testimony of respect which the
people of rJ ennessee have for the mem-
jry of the martyred president. The
srehentation of tiie marble to Governor
l'urney at Knoxville seems to have
Deen celebrated with all sincerity and
; he letter received by Governor Hol-
: oinb.notifying him of the shipment of
.he block is kind and generous. The
itone will be thankfully received by
; tate authorities and there is taJk of
iskinir the next legislature to make an
tppropriation for the employment of a
ompetent sculptor.
From figures in the state auditor ' s
iffice an interesting showing is made
is to the decrease in the assessed valu-
LtioK of the state. Sixteen counties
lave ( nude reports on the 1S9G assess *
nenr valuation. In these the reduc-
ion ae compared with 1S9.1 is SI. 18. i.000.
n four of these counties there is an in-
rease of 593,000 , making a net de
rease in the sixteen of 51.002.000. At
he same ratio of decrease the whole
late will fall off § 0,500.000. The total
aluation of taxable property in 18P3

Hlock the Tariff.
Concord , N. ET. , June 29. Unitec
States Senator Gallinger said yester
day : ' * 1 fear for Republican control o
the benate. The full senate nov
numbers ninety members , and weshal
need forty-six for a majority , though
inasmuch as the existing vacancy ii
Kentucky will continue until 189'J , w <
can get along during the next con
gress with forty-five. We have nov
lorty-four senators who are nominally
Republicans , but of these , five Sen
ators Teller , Dubois , Carter , Manth
sind Cannon refused to act with us ir
the passage of the Dingley emergency
tariff last winter , and I suppose we mus' '
now add to them Senator Pettigrew o :
South Dakota , because he left the St.
Louis convention with other seceders ,
This reduces us to thirty-eighl
straightout Republicansjwho are foi
protection , as against protection yoked
with free silver , and we shall need
seven more to enable us to pass th (
revenue bill , which the country de
mands. Some of our gains are already
made , as in Maryland and Ohio , and
we shall elect in. Nv York , Illinois
and Wisconsin. This will give us
forty-three , or two short of a major
ity. Among our danger spots we
must include North Carolina Sena
tor Pritchard's seat is likely to be lost ,
because he was first chosen by a fusion
movement , which prooably will bt :
hard to effect again. In Dta'- also ,
there is danger of losing fecnatot
Brown , who refused to act with the
silver men in deadlocking tne Dingley
bill , and who now has been confronted
with an issue in his light for reelection
tion , which will either defeat or cause
him to coalesce with Senator Cannon
in a policy of opposition. In Colorado
Senator Wolcott ; s in similar danger ,
as he has been subject to venomous
criticism because he would not go so
far as Senator Teller in his devotion
to the white metal. Add to this the
not altogether remote chance of los
ing a Republican Senator in North
Dakota and California , and the claims
of the Democrats that we cannot elect
in either Kansas or Illinois , and the
outlook is not rosy. I must admit
that 1 cannot now satisfactorily out
line the method by which we shall be
able to hold the Senate for a protec
tive tariff without a free silver rider. "

From the Wave , Odell , Nebranka. j
A reporter of the Wave having J
heard of the great faith Mr. and Mrs. • <
I. O. Drace. of Odell , Nebraska , have- ,
lu the curative properties of Dr. Wil- /
llama * Pink Tills for Pale People , determined - j
termined to see the partlcn in person. *
and ascertain the truth of the reports. ,
With that purpose In vlejv tt drive- ,
was taken to their tine farm a few
miles west of town , where Mrs. Bruce J
was found busily engaged In assisting- %
her husband make wlro fence. No
doubt noticing our surprise , she apolo
gized , saying "that the children were
old enough to be of much help with tho-
liousework , and she thus had time to *
assist her husband.
"But Is it possible that you have recovered - '
covered so as to do work requiring the
constant use of your arm . without ,
suffering ? " asked the reporter.
This question elicited the following
wonderful story : "I do not wonder
that you tire surprised , uuid Mrs. j
Brace , for as every one In this vicinity • |
knows for several years I was nearly
crippled and suffered constantly from ,1
rheumatism. AVhen I first felt the attack - I
tack I got medicine from a local phy- 1
slclan , but instead of getting better \
1 grew worse , until I suffered Intense | "i
agony , which no one who has not had {
the dread disease can understand. Irt
hopes of relief , leading physicians ln. <
other towns were consulted , and they' J
all agreed In pronouncing It a severe j .
case of muscular rheumatitun , and as 1
their prescriptions were taken month '
after month without beneficial results , ,
they ceased to give encouragement , 1
and said that I was gradually becom
ing paralyzed. '
"I had by that time become so crippled - ,
pled that I had to give up all wotk ,
and the only way I could carry my
right arm was in an upright position.
Any attempt to lower it caused ex
cruciating pain. Constant sufft-rSng-
caused general debility , and life seemed. 1
too great a burden to bear It is said. ! ,
a drowning man will catch at a straw , .
and so it was in my case , as I read a j
testimonial in a newspaper f happened |
to pick tip , of a case similar to mine , 1
which had been cured by Pink 1-MIh X
for Pale People , and I determined to > 't '
give them a trial. j
"I admit my faith waa weak , for I
had always been prejudiced against ' .
so-called patent medicines , but by the *
: time 1 had taken three boxea the relief
was so apparent that I determined to-
continue their use. In a few weeks rny
general health improved , and I could
move my arm without dlfliculty. and' , '
by the time ten boxes Iiad been used r
felt better than I had' for years , and I
can now say with confidence that 1 ; um
cured. I always keep the pills In the
house and take a box of them every
spring as a blood purifier , and at any | , '
time that 1 take cold and f'iur a return w
of my old trouble. " T
Continuing , Mrs. Brace said : "I jjve- f I
all the credit of my recovery to Dr. J
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People , 1 M
and both my husband and I shall always - " J
ways be ready to speak In their praise.
We tell our neighbors on every ot-ca- i
sion of their virtues , and if you think : A
this is sufllelfnt Interest we will bf glad m
to have this testimonial made public , . T
hoping that it may be of benefit to- 1
those who otherwise would he lifc-lcng- /
sufferers. " / •

doubt , Mrs. Brace made affidavit. ' - |
