Tom Lnwson must bo credited with
being shrewd nnd foresighted In one
particular and that Is that he del civ
mined to make his first personal ap
peal to the people of the west. The
way he has been received shows that
he has not underrated the Importance
of courting the people of a section of
the country that have demonstrated
power nnd force In dealing with per-
ploving problems growing out of the
government , and "the system" Is Infer

The Madison county republicans
have been summoned to meet In Battle -
tlo Crook on September ( ? . While the
date Is yet a good month and a half
away there la interest In what the ,
convention may do nnd some of the
politicians are already laying their
plans to gather In the positions of
fered. As far as the average voter is
concerned , however , the interest Is
not yet at fever heat , but ho will be
content to leave his plans for marking
his ballot until after the conventions
luivo said their say.

Is removing the arms nnd giving the
sailors Indefinite leaves of nbsence. ,
It Is a remarkable spectacle in a mod
ern country pretending to some degree
of clvlll/atlon and laying claim to dls- i
Unction as one of the world's powers.
It will take a revolution of some sort
to bring Russia up on Its general average
erage as a factor in world's affairs. A
largo population , alone , has been dem
onstrated to bo insufllclcnt.
A couple of do7.en of the people who
led In the rioting at Odessa have been
hung nnd it Is said that another batch 1
of seventeen Is to be publicly executed.
The czar Is evidently coming to the
conclusion that the only good Russians
are dead Russians nnd he Is helping
Japan to dispose of the surplus men
of his country quite energetically.
The manifest spirit of the common
people for more freedom nnd Indepen
dence does not seem to down , however -
over , and It may be expected that two
determined men will rise up eventual
ly to take the place of one who Is
killed in fighting for their rights.
President Roosevelt Is said to not
be disposed to take a hand In the se
lection of his successor In the white
house. Ho is willing to leave that to
his party and his countrymen , but If
he does so unqualifiedly the man chos
en for the coming four year term will
ho none other than Roosevelt himself.
The people mighthe capable of choos
ing a successor , then again they
might mnko a mistake , but with
Roosevelt In the office they will feel
certain that the best thing for the
country and all Its Interests will have
been accomplished. A united and
spontaneous demand for Roosevelt
might keep him in the executive chair
us it forced him to take the nomina
tion for the vice presidency against
his expressed wishes.
There Is more cata-rh In this sec
tion of the country than all other dis
eases put together , and until the last
few years was supposed to be Incur
able. For n great many years doctors
pronounced It a local disease nnd prescribed - '

stantly falling to cure with local treat
ment , pronounced It Incurable. Sci
