one of the kidneys. When these in

THE SLEEPING SICKNESS
WHICH MEANS DEATH
How many readers have heard of this
terrible disease? It prevails in that
far-away count ry—Africa—especially
the Congo district. It is caused by
the bite of the tsetse fly. When it
bites a person, the sleeping symptoms
begin and finally the sufferer sleeps
until death occurs.
Contrast this with the peaceful, I
balmy sleep of health. Is there any
thing more wearing than to lie awake
at night, tossing about, nervous, with
cold feet, hot head and mercy knows
what else? Short of letting the tsetse
fly bite us we would do almost any
thing for relief. How can we pre
vent It? Mr. George Hayes, of
Union City, Pa., writes: “I had lost
my appetite, was all run-down, could
not sleep nights. I had tried every
thing without relief. Vlnol was rec
ommended, and to my surprise, it
helped me at once; gave me a splendid
appetite, and now I sleep soundly.”
What Vlnol did for Mr. Hayes, it will
do for every run-down, nervous and
overworked person who cannot sleep.

A Few Timely Suggestions by One
T.'s time to bestir ourselves if we j
expect to accomplish the end for
which our candidates were nomi
This is a crisis in our nation, as
our friend the lion- Hoke Smith
told us, and if we do not wake up
to the issues of the day and the
level headed conservative men of
our country will not put their
shoulder to the wheel, “the peo
ple will rule."’ And it will be the
class of people too who are car
ried away by just such oratory
and catchy, slushy doctrine as
Was advanced by Mr. Smith. We
heard him from an unprejudiced
standpoint and must admit that
lie is an orator,a forcible speaker,
and an earnest politician and we
think that whatever Mr. Bryan
may say in behalf of himself a*nd
his own cause, will sound very
tame in comparison. Mr. Smith
is a large powerful built man
with a heavy voice and a good
llow of language but actually de
void of the chivalry of grand old
southerners, whom we have been
privileged to listen to before. In
speaking ol our president, he
never once had the manliness to :
call him President Roosevelt but
invariably called him Mr. Roose
velt or Roosevelt- While in the :
old days of President Cleveland's
administration our own speakers,
though denouncing his policies. |
never failed to give the proper
title of president to the man rul
ing a great nation like ours. Ik
spoke of the legislation favoring
the few- 'Twas the merest bosh
for we knew that President Roose
velt has done more for the common
people and against the trusts and
monopolies than any other man
living. He said "how much Mr.
Bryan had aged that he was
wearing his life out for the peo
ple.” If he has aged and is
breaking down it has been done •
in making iiis own fortune and in
his own aggrandizement. He also |
spoke ot the tariff for revenue i
only which was tried to our sor
row from 1 S'»2 to 189b, and of
buying our farm implements
abroad under free trade with noth
ing to buy with. He spoke of the
bread line in New York City
caused by the panic. How mis
leading! There always has been
a bread line there, and always
will. In a city of over 4,000,000
of people there are many who
cannot work and many more who
will not, who would starve or beg
if it were not for charity of the
city rulers who established this
plan. In other large cities on the ]
globe pedestrains and especially i
visitors can scarcely walk a block j
without being accosted by beg-1
gars and street waifs while you
may walk for miles in New York
City and see no more of such
things than here. We who were
priviledged to hear Mr. Scott,
chairman of the Bureau of Agri- j
culture know that he answered I
the whole argument of free trade 1
when he said “That the differ
ence in farm products in purchas- j
ing power between then and now (
is this: The farmer then might j
buy the binder. Now with the
same number of bushels of grain
he could buy the binder and a
nice surry and have SbO left. And
so like the closing remarks in a
clear field what would we do in
the l,rush,tariff tinkering, finance
tinkering, etc. Be up and doing
republicans, while it is day.
