Tim labor anions have added this
-eleventh commandment to the deca
'logue: "Tbou shalt not take thy neigh
bor's job." Commentary on It: Don't

In Japan the franchise is a private
snap. In a population of 40,000,000 there
are but 31)0,000 voters who elect 300 men
to office. Votes range in price from
The tariff plaDk which the Iowa re
publicans put iD their platform is demo
cralic doctrine pure and simple. These
-republican tariff smashers find their
ideas embodied in liou.-e bill No. 15,100,
introduced by James D. Richardson, the
leader of the democratic minority in the
house. It provides for removing the
protective tariff from goods corralled by
a trust or trusts.
The maintenance of the statu quo be
tween Russia and Austria with regard
to the restless Balkan peninsula prom
ises to be but temporary. A European
.journal states: "As soon as Russia be
lieves that the time has come for her
to realize certain projects, she will push
Bulgaria into immediate action, and the
state of affairs will change altogether.
Austria-Hungaiy will have to go to war
or part with her influence in the Bal
kans." Mr. II.vsna's slogan for the coming
campaign is: "Keep on letting well
enough alone." This will be an inter
esting campaign cry for the people who
are unable to obtain meat as food be
cause of the exactions of the trusts. It
will also be an interesting cry for the
consumers generally whose income has
undergone no material increase, but
w hose living expenses have doubled be
cause of the control which the trusts
have over the necessities of life.
A young graduate of the Mill Hill
school, England, enlisted in the African
war, ar.d after long and valiant service
came home seriously wounded. On
"peace night" he was set upon by a
fiaand of London "Hooligans" and bru

imurder, and have planted on the spot a

jal's attention to the fact that the in
dustrial depression on the continent of
Europe continues. It is severest in
llussiu, which has suffered from several
Mui'CCBatve crop failures, and between
i -untie distress in the rural dis-
tricta and widespread unemployment
in the cities, the spirit of revolu
tion waxes strong. The assistance of
the public treasury had abne prevented
general bank failure and worse financial
distrust even than exists. Industry in
. Austria-Hungary is in the midst of a
; period of depression nearly as severe as
that which alllicts Russia. Switzerland,
Belgium, aud the Scandinavian coun-
tries are similarly situated, while In
Miermany, whose crisis has attracted
nore attention, there is no relief as yet
ifrom the downward trend of credit aud
enterprise. The liquidation still goes
in. and the end is not in sight.
Tns educational conventions of the
year have emphasized the demand for
i more accurate teaching in the primary
schools of the country. Examinations
-.in all parts of the Uuion show that a
-great deal is lacking in that respect.
IToor spelling, bad grammar and absurd
yjeor.tpl y wero prouiiueut indicia of the
insufficient teaching that is being done
in rural schools especially. In this con
nection we find it reported from Porto
Rico that a larger percentage of natives
than Americans passed the recent civil
exa inations ii the island, and that on
the geography sheet of the United States
the natives . had higher averages than
those who were born and educated here
in the Btates. Of what practical benefit
are the higher schools when the pri
mary schools are almost universally de
ficient? Certainly the utmost care and
diligence should be expended upon the
simpler schools first of all. Compara
tively few of our children ever get be
yond them, and while in tbem they
should receive correct instruction in
spelling, reading, composition, geogra
phy and history. A weak ar.d ineffi
cient system of primary Bchools is like a
rotten stone found tion to a Renaissance
The annual report of the Brooklyn,
N. Y., Rapid Transit Company shoe's
that the enormous sum of $971,807 was
paid during the year on claims for per
sonal injuries, says the Railway Review,
The legal and claim department ex
penses swelled this amount to tl,142,
902, or nearly 10 per cent, of the com
pany's gross receipts. The report says :
"A large part of these excessive pay
ments is unjuBtly exacted. So low has
the standard of professional ethics fallen,
that today it 19 common to see attorneys,
physicians, clients and witnesses leagued
in a conspiracy to mulct railroad com
panies, manufacturers and merchants,
each of the parties to the conspiracy
having a contingent interest in the ver
dict and being tempted by the hope of
success to exaggerate injuries, pervert
facts and corrupt jurors. It used to be
illegal, and has always been deemed
improper, for an attorney to have a con
tingent interest in the result of his liti
gation, but it is not too much to say that
not 50 per cent, of the money which this
company paid last year in damages
through attorneys reached their clients."
This is far from flattering to gentlemen
of the legal profession. However, it
is conceded among capitalists that it is
no longer possible to secure valuable
franchises n one of our great cities, ex
cept by bribery of the city officials.

THREE BEAUTIFUL WOMEN:

Their Health And Beauty

75 Walton Place, Chicago, III.
"As a tonic for a worn-out system,
Peruna stands at the head In my esti
mation. Its effects are truly wonder
ful In rejuvenating the entire system.
I keep It on hand all the time, and
never have that 'tired feeling,' as a
few doses always make me feel like a
different woman. "Florence Allan.
" Thousands of women suffer from sys
temic catarrh. This is sure to produce
such symptoms as cold feet and hands,
sick headache, palpitation of the heart
and heavy feelings in the stomach.
Then begins a Buries of experiments
They take medicine for sick headache.
They take medicine for nervous prostra
tion, for palpitation of the heart, for
dyspepsia. None of these medicines do
any good because they do not reach the
cause of the complaint, v.
Peruna at once mlticates all these
symptoms by removing the cause.
Systemic catarrh is the trouble. Sys
temic catarrh pervades the whole sys
tem, deranges every organ, weakens
every function. No permanent cure can
be expected until the systemic catarrh
This is exactly what Peruna will do.

Gentlemen "Peruna has many friends

very nervous and exhausted from over-
study. I was weak and sick, ana could
neither eat, sleep nor enjoy life. A
couple bottles of Peruna put new life in
me. I find by having it in the house and
taking a dose off and on it keeps me in
fine health. A large number of my
friends place Peruna at the head of all
medicines." Eose Cullen.
Peruna Is especially adapted to pro

monial of Miss Cullen Indicates.
Miss Blanche Myers, 3120 Penn street,
Kansas City, Mo., has the following to
say of Peruna:
"During each of the past four seasons
I have caught a severe cold, when sud
denly chilled after an evening party,
and catarrh for several weeks would be
the result. One bottle of Peruna cured
me, and I shall not dread colds any more
as I did." Blanche Myers.
