the sea-level canal. The general course
of the canal Is from northeast to south
west. At Colon on the north side of the
Isthmus the tide In the Atlantic rises tut
two feet, while at Panama, on the south
side, the tide In the Pacific rises twenty
feet. As high tide occurs twice every
twenty-four hours It will readily be seen
that this variation In height would occasion
a formidable current In the canal, flowing
from south to north, unless Impeded by a
lock at the south side. During the greater
part of the day the water In both oceans
is at a level and the lock would be open,
but from the time the rising tide passed
the mean point until It was reached again
by the ebb the lock would be necessary.

Two Companies Reject Coaster Prop
osltloas to Bay Oat Rivals.
BLAIR. Neb., Nov. . 'Special.) The
telephone fight which has been going on
here between the Mutual and Nebraska
companies for some time, and which the
business men of Blair have been trying to
end during thli week, almost to the extent
of neglecting their own business, will con
tinue and this city will be running under
the two 'phone system. An all-day session
was held yesterday In the Clifton hotel
parlors between the officers of the Ne
braska company and the entire board of
the Mutual company, with a dosen or
more of the business men sandwiched In
as arbitrators, trying to form a consolida
tion of the two companies.
All efforts to agree were brought to a
close last night and each company will now
push Its plant for the business of this city
and county. Superintendent Belt and tho
officers of the Nebraska company have
spent several days here, and yesterday
made a final offer to the Mutual company.
In which they would buy all city property
of the line and operate the country lines
at 26 cents per month per 'phone, giving
them free service to Kennard and Herman,
the owners of the country lines to keep
them in repair. This was rejected by the
Independent company, which In turn sub
mitted a proposal offering to buy all the
property of the Nebraska company except
where the lines run parallel with the other
and to operate the toll lines for the Ne
braska company for 16 per cent of the re
ceipts. This was turned down and when
the meeting adjourned It was to find the
two parties further apart than when they
commenced and with more bitter feeling.
Little hope Is entertained that any agree
ment will be reached between the two com
panies. STORES OPEN Sl'XDAY MOR!XG
New Ordinance In West Point Allows
Five Honrs for Business.
WEST POINT. Neb., Nov. 25. (Special )
The Sunday question, which has been
vexing the minds of our citizens for the
last two months, has been finally settled by
the passage of an ordinance by the city
council allowing business houses and stores
to transact business on Sunday between
the hours of 8 In the morning and 1 in the
afternoon. In the same ordinance the
saloons are absolutely forbidden to do busi
ness on Sunday and the closing hour for
week days Is set at 11 o'clock. Much feel
ing has been created by the attempted en
forcement of the Sunday law as applied to
the stores, the farming community con
sidering It a hardship upon them to be de
prived of warmth and shelter for them
selves and their families when attending
church in the city on Sunday. The result
has been the passage of the above men-
I tloned compromise ordinance.

ew Order Received at Blair.
BLAIR. Neb.. Nov. 23. (Speclal.)-The
announcement from Wsshlngton in yester
day's papers that Postmaster General Cor
telyou had decided that all first-class post
offices would be placed upon the merit sys
tem as to the postmasters holding their
jobs almost caused several bad cases of
heart disease In Bialr. For some lime the
railroad from here to Omaha has done a
thriving business upon the patronage of
the eight or ten aspirants who have been
confidently consoling themselves that they
would step Into Postmaster W. J. Cook's
shoes when the time came for him to step
out. It has been rumored that there were
several dark horses that would pull out
on the track at the proper time, nnd two
or three of the old republican wheel horses,
who were considered close under the wire,
have been making trl-weekly trips to the
postofflce for the purpose of observing the
Ins and outs of the running of one of Uncle
Sam's offices since yesterday's papers
reached Blair. The grin upon Postmaster
Cook's face, which had taken a perpendicu
lar position for the last few weeks, has
widened and so as to make his facial ex
pression resemble a comic opera litho
graph, and the office force will continue
to eat three square meals a day and feel
that they can afford to do It.

Alfred Thomas this year was the first on
behalf of Wales, but there Is no less fiery
zeal shown by the advocates of labor In

All the centrifugal Influences inside the
party are hard at work endeavoring to se
cure preference for their own particular
universal remedies. The most eminent and
the most characteristic example of Injudi
cious sincerity of purpose, and the only one
as yet of cabinet ran!. Is Mr. John Mur
ky. And the very qualities which proba
bly diminish his weight In the determina
tion of his country's destiny make him at
tractive to the foreign observer. He Is
habitually referred to as a man of theory.
There is nothing, however, which more an
noys him or provokes more frequent denials
in his speeches. His alms are definite and
concrete, and no one follows them more
steadily nor with greater energy. But he
does not seem to possess the knack of

Many there are who believe that Mr.
Chamberlain's domination Is on the wane
In Birmingham. One reason for this con
clusion Is found In the fact that In West
Birmingham Mr. Chamberlain's liberal op
ponent has held a long succession of not
only large but uninterrupted meetings. The
day Is evidently passed In Birmingham
when it was regarded as an Impudent in
trusion for any one differing from the local
Idol to express an opinion there. The
liberal candidate, on the other hand, has j
had numerous letters irom worklngmen
describing themselvi-s as ex-Chamberlaln-Ites,
thanking him for coming forward and
promising to vote for him. The claim Is
made that the results of the war have
served to disgust the people of Birming
ham. Mr. Chamberlain recommended It as
a commercial undertaking and an economic
proposition and they accepted it on that
ground. That Mr. Chamberlain can be
beaten in the general election Is believed
to be beyond the grounds of possibility.
But his satellites in the surrounding seats,
fur instance Mr. Jesse Collins, are by no
C'baiubrrlaln Still Popular.
Meanwhile, If Mr. Chamberlain appears to
be losing ground locally, he certainly con
tinues to maintain that marvelous hold
upas the British gen6ral public which
baa been his for man; years. Ilia recent
spetch, dealing with the general election
has been received with expressions of ap
proval In al parts of the British empire.
Speaking directly to the proposition of the
general election he observed that the people
of the I'nlted Kingdom had been In the
throes of It for some time, but tt appears
always to be receding. He said that he
made no secret of the fact that it had
been his own opinion for some time past
that every month of delay had operated
to the disadvantage of the Unionist party.
But he scornfully denounced as a weak In
vention of the enemy the insinuation that
he had tried to force the hand of the government.-
He said that he could not do so
if he would and be added with especial
emphasis that he would not do so If he
could. Mr. Chamberlain's Idea is that even
If the tactics of the general do not wholly
approve themselves to his subordinates
they can achieve nothing but disaster by
trying to set up a different set of tactics.

Sim, barrister, has refused to give his
sanction to a rule submitted to him by
the Railway Clerks' Trade union, which
proposed to authorise the use of a portion
of the union's fund for the purposes of
parliamentary representation. The Impor
tance of this action on the part of the
chief registrar cannot be over estimated.
It means that the payment of salaries to
labor members of Parliament is illegal,
and thus a disastrous blow will be dealt
to trade unions all over the country, and
a grave crisis is threatened. The decision
is all the more extraordinary because the
chief registrar's predecessor had previously
sanctioned the adoption of similar rules,
which have been approved by nearly all
the large trade unions.

The practice of medicine and the treatment of

takes pride and pleasurit In alleviating pain and

result of improper care we take of our bodies, and
the result of the abuse we Intllct on It. When
we abuse and overtax nature she rebels. There
are thouxands of men who today are wrecks,
both physically and mentally, due to over-indulgence
or youthful errors. Men whose youth of
