Senator, practically wound up the Demo
cratic campaign in Reno-this evening.
He also addressed a large meeting. Both
sides arc claiming the state.
If one can judge from expressions, and
looks of the fusion candidates, they are
very much worried, while the Republicans
arc confident. The fight for Governor be
tween Cleveland, Republican, and Sparks,
Democrat, promises to be very clo.e. It
is pretty generally conceded that Far
rington. Rep., will defeat Van Duser,
Dem., for Congress by a majority various
ly estimated from 1000 to 5000. The .Legis
lative ticket will be badly .scratched in
nearly every county in the state. New
lands papers claim the Legislature on joint
ballot by three. Hawley also claims the
Legislature. The state will be very close
on Mil lines.
Democrats Concede Advantage
Republicans on State Ticket.
TOPEIvA, Nov. 1. Kansas today finished
the quietest state campaign in its history.
In some counties, the fund provided for
carrying on the campaign has not been
touched, so little Interest has there been
taken In the contest. Local fights, in
some Instances, have furnished practical

The Republican and Democratic state
chairmen have Issued their customary
forecasts, each claiming the state by a
good majority. The Democratic mana
gers privately concede, howevev, that
the chances for the election of the Repub
lican ticket are good, so far as the state
Is concerned. The Democrats insist,
at the same time, that they nave a good
chance of carrying tho Legislature on
account of the factional differences that
have been, engendered among the Repub
licans as a result of the Senatorial fight.
It is possible that they will make gains
in some counties. The question of re
ciprocity has entered very little Into the
Republican campaign. Roosevelt's rec
ord and general prosperity have furnished
the theme for the Republican orators.

CINCINNATI. Nov. L The canvass In
Ohio for minor state offices and members
of Congress closed toniJt with less rally
ing than usual oil the Saturday preceding
election. The most nV.table exceptions t
were in Cleveland, where Senator Hanna
and Mayor Johnson have been speaking
all this week, and at Columbus, where
Senator Foraker addressed a large meet

from other states than formerly. "With
the exception of Congressional candi

than in all candidates, and issues at the

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. L The cim
paign was brought to a close with a Re
publican mass meeting in this city, as
sisted by Governor Penrose, ex-Judge
Pennypacker, gubernatorial candidate; ex-Postmaster-General
Charles Emory Smith
and local candidates. Both sides ire
claiming a victory, the Republicans as
serting that Judge Pennypacker will de
feat R. E. Pattison, the Democratic can
didate for - Governor, by at least 100,030
majority. The Democratic leiders, on
the other hand, are equally confident of
success. Paitlcular interest Is evidenced
in the Legislature, as United States Sen
ator Penrose comes up for re-election In
March. A strong effort has been made
by the Democrats to change the com
plexion of the Legislature, in the hdpe of
Republicans Believe Their TicUet
Will-Have SOOO Majority.
LINCOLN, Neb.. Nov. 1. The campaign
in Nebraska closed tonight, so far as the
actual work of the committees " is con
cerned. Tonight W. J. Bryan concluded
a three days' canvass through the state
on behalf of the Fuslonists, traveling on
a special train and making a dozen
speeches a day.
At the headquarters of the two promi
nent political parties, no figures on plu
ralities were given. Chairman Lindsay,
for the Republicans, said he was satisfied
with conditions, and his ticket would
win. Unofficial estimates of Republican
leaders Is that their entire ticket will be
elected by not less than SOOO. Chairman
Hall, of the Democratic committee, said
"he had no claims to make.

RALEIGH. N. C, Nov. L Under the
constitutional amendment which disfran
chised illiterate negroes In North Caro
lina, only 10,003 negroes have registered,
and the Democratic majority. It Is stated,
will be much larger than usual In the
state election Tuesday. Of the members
of Congress to be elected the Democrats
declare they will elect all nine. The state
ticket. It is asserted, will be carried by
tho Democrats by not less than 50,000
majority. It is predicted that -tho Gen
eral Assembly will be four-fifths Demo
cratic, and this Insures the defeat of
Senator Prltchard, Republican, and the
election of a Democrat to succeed him.
Chances Favorable for Re-election
of Governor Van Sunt.
ST. PAUL, Nov. L Both parties hive
been putting out strenuous efforts to win,
the most work being on the Governorship
Governor Van Sant Is the Republican
candidate for re-election, and the cam
paign has been largely on the question ol
an Indorsement of his opposition to the
co-called railway merger. The question
hc been one on which the two parties
have divided, and the Indorsement given
will be personal. The chances seem to be
rather favorable to the' Republicans. For

Indications Favor La Follette's Elec

MILWAUKEE, Nov. 1. The political
campaign in Wisconsin, which closed to
night, has been the most vigorously
fought in the state's .history. The indl
cations seem to favor La Follette's re
election by a greatly reduced plurality,
which will be caused by disaffection in tne
Republican ranks. Both state chairmen
claim to be confident of success. Tho Leg
islature, which will elect a United States
Senator, will be Republican. Of the 11
members ofCongress th Republicans arc
practically sure of eight, with two doubt

Delaware tonight. There are three can
didates in the field for Congress, L; Heis
lerball, regular Republican and present
member: William Byrne. Union Republi
can, and Henry A. Houston, Democrat.
Tho Republicans are divided into two
factions, the Addlcks and antl-Addicks.
Because of this fact, it Is believed the
Democrats will elect their. Congressional
candidate and possibly enough Legislative
candidates to elect two Senators.
IX WEST VIRG1XIA.
Republicans Clr.Im All the Member
WHEELING, W. Va.. Nov. 1. The cam
paign which closed tonight was remark
ably dull in Wrr.t Virginia. Republicans
claim all members of Congress, and con
servative Democrats, concede the election
of B. B. Dovcncr. In 'the First District,
but declaro they have better than a fight
ing chance in all others. Counties com
posing two of the new districts gave
slight Democratic majorities in 4SS8, but
all the districts wero Republican in 1900.
The apathy of voters will affect Republi
can candidates more than their opponents.

Xo Doubt of Ove'rwhelmingr Majority
MONTGOMERY, Ala., Nov. 1. The cam
paign closed in Alabama, tonight. The
elimination of the negro from the elec
toral" vote haj caused a partial recasting
of political lines, and an attempt has been
made by the "Ltlywhlte" "Republicans to
supply all the opposition to the Demo
crats. There is no doubt' of an, over-
whelming majority-for the Democrats. In
one Congressional District, the Seventh,
the race will be clo3e, with indications
favoring the Democrats.
Bliss and' Entire Republican Ticket
DETROIT, Nov. 1. It Is the -'opinion of
a majority of political" observers that
Governor -Bliss and the entire Republican
state ticket will be electedralthough many
of them, except that the Governor will
run behind the ticket. It Is conceded that
the Democratic ticket suffered a severe
loss in the. withdrawal of Judge George
H. Durand, of Flint, the original nominee
for Governor. He was stricken with
paralysis September 1, and after several
weeks of Illness was compelled to with
draw his name.

CHICAGO, Nov. 1. It Is admitted by
the leaders of the Republican and Demo
cratic parties that the chief fight of the
coming "state election will be in Chicago
and Cook County. Both parties are
claiming the county by pluralities rang
ing from 20,000 to 30,000. The Republican
managers, who assert that they have
made a careful canvass of the city and
county, ray they are' absolutely certain
of victory, while the Democratic leaders
assert that the strong union labor repre
sentation on tlie ticket, coupled with the
fact lmi the Democratic platform pledges
the .party to public ownership of public
utilities, will bring them a 6tronger labor
vote than ttiey have ever had before and
assure them of victory. Tho moat Im

In audience at the Potsdam Palace. Mr.

HARTFORD, Conn., Nov. 1. At the
headquarters of the Republicans In Hart
ford tonight the belief was expressed
that, owing to the many lively local and
county contests throughout the state, the
total vote will be larger than that cast at
the election of ISO?, and will more nearly
approach the figures of the Presidential
year of 1900. Fitfe Congressmen and a
full state ticket. Including members of the
Assembly, which will choose a successor
to United States Senator O. H. Piatt,
will be elected. The Prohibitionist, So
cialist and Socialist Labor parties also
have tickets In the field. Confidence of
the Republicans is most pronounced.

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 1. Indica
tions point to a light vote in Tennessee
next Tuesday. The Democratic and Re-
publlf an Gubernatorial candidates have
each made an active campaign, but the
public, conceding Democratic victory, has
not been stirred from its apathetic .condi
tion. The election of Frasler, Democrat,
for Governor, is a foregone conclusion,
while the 10 Congressional districts will
remalni unchangedr-eight Democrats and
two Republicans. 1

BALTIMORE, Nov. L The campaign In
Maryland closed tonight with Republi

tion will' be for Congressmen .only. The
present delegation of six Representatives
Is Republican. A nonpartisan estimate
would probably give the Democrats two

are in favor of the Republicans.

BOSTON, Nov. 1. The situation in this

-THE VALUE OF CHARCOAL.
Few People Know How Useful It Is
In Preserving Health and Beauty.
Nearly everybody knows that charcoal
lsthe safest and most efficient disinfect
ant and purifier In nature," but few real
ize its value when takert Into the human
system for the same cleansing purpose.
Charcoal is a remedy that the moro you
take of it the better; It is not a drug at
all, but simply absorto the gases and Im
purities always present In the stomach
and intestines and carries them out of
Charcoal sweetens the breath after
smoking, drinking, or after eating onions
and other odorous vegetables.
Charcoal effectually clears and im
proves the complexion, it whitens the
teeth and further acts as a natural and
eminently safe cathartlci
It absorbs the injurious gases which
collect In the stomach and bowels; it dis
infects the mouth and throat from the
poison of catarrh.
All druggists' sell charcoal in one form
or another, but probably the best char
coal and the most for the money is in
Stuart's Absorbent Lozenges; th,ey are
composed of the finest powdered Willow
charcoal, and: other harmless antiseptics
in tablet form or rather In the form of
large, pleasant tasting lozenges, the
charcoal being mixed with honey.
The daily use of these lozenges will
soon tell in a much improved condition
of the general nealth, better complexion,
sweeter breath and purer blood, and the
beauty of It Is, that no possible harm can
result from their continued use, but on
the contrary, great benefit.
A Buffalo physician In speaking of the
benefits of charcoal,4 says: advise
Stuart's Absorbcnt.Lozenges to all pa
tients suffering from gas in stomach and
bowels, 'and to clear the complexion and
purify the breath, mouth and throat; 1
also believe the" liver Is greatly benefited
by the daily use of them; they cost but
twenty-five cents a box at drug stores,
and although in some sense a patent
preparation, yet I believe I get more and
better charcoal in Stuart's Absorbent
Lozcnge3 than in any of the ordinary

cures catarrh perma
nently, and this way
People who have been cured by Pe
runa many yearo ago have been
eager to recommend "Peruna to thoir
friends ever since. This is the way Peru
na Is advertised. It advertises itself. Its
merits are its chief advertisement. Once
cured of so distressing and exasperating
a malady as catarrh, it becomes the Suty
of every one to pass it along: to call the
attention of those who are still victims, to
a remedy that rarely falls to cure.
Beware of Cheap Imitations of Pe-ru-na
Be Sure That You Get
There are no substitutes for Peruna.
Allow no one to persuade you that there
Is something Just as good. The success
of Peruna has tempted many people to
devise cheap Imitations. Beware of them.
Be sure that you get Peruna.
Miss Jennie Driscoll, 870 Putnam ave
