' The Chinese in this country have
great fainh in their countrymen at
borne. They refuse to believe the re
ports about the Japanese victories, and
say that the Chinese are ready to do and
die for their country and that Japan
will be whipped off the face of the
earth when China gets ready to do
the whipping. Their faith is sub
lime but their opinions are not worth
much. Japan has China whipped now,
and if she gets a move on will keep her
whipped. Mis-governed, and three
centuries behind the times China rely
ing upon her vast population, has yet
been unable to realize that numbers do
not mean strength. Her unarmed
hordes can offer no successful resistance
to the disciplined troops of Japan, arm
ed with the most modern implements of
war. Japan will do with China just
what her own desires and the restrict
ions imposed by other European powers
Sandow, the strong man, has met his
match in the little Miss Somebody who
has defied the strongest of men to lift
her from the floor. Sandow has lifted
5,300 pounds, but he failed to lift this
little Georgia woman who only weighs
98 pounds, though he tugged and
strained his utmost. Wherein her
power lies she does not pretend to know,
but when she doesn't want to be lifted
all creation can't budge her. It may be
simply a case of phenomenal feminine
contrariety illustrating the old saying
concerning woman, that "when she will
she will, depend on't, and when she
won't she fpon't and that's the end
M. Sivan, a French watchmaker, has
succeeded in arranging a phonograph in
a watch eo that upon pressing a button
the watch calls out the time by such ex
pressions as : , "It is eight o'clock," "It
is half past four," etc. -The same in
ventor has perfected an alarm clock that
yells out "Get up," "Wake up," and
keeps it up until the drowsy victim
crawls out of bed and stands it on its
head. It would be for all the world like
a lot of men under similar circumstances
to press the buttons on half a dozen
watches at once and hear them get into
a dispute about the correct time, calling
each other liars to their faces, as it were.
And now there is talk of still another
transcontinental railroad in the face of
the fact that none of thoBe already
built are paying dividends, or interest
on the bonds. The new scheme, is to
be known as the British Pacific, will
start from Vancouver and will meet te
Manitoba & Northwestern on the buto
mit of the Rocky mountains. The lat
ter road is already built for one-fourth
of the distance from Dnluth. It is said
the road will run through a very rich
prairie country, but what object there
is in building it at the present time at
least is Lard to determine.
If the Arctic explorers do not get a
move on, and the railroad companies
keep up their aggressiveness the latter
will have a railroad to the north pole
and use it for a flag staff for their grand
central depot before the former discover
it. The latest railroad scheme is crowd
ing up towards the Arctic circle, and
with the coming of better times, the
road up the coast to Behring sea will
certainly be commenced. This would
make but a 300 mile break in railroad
connection between London and New
York, and would only lack 3500 miles of
encircling the globe.
They had an election in Connecticut
the other day it being for the selection
of echool clerks, but in its nature gen
ial. The result was what might reason
ably be expected, an overwhelming re
publican vote. If it can be taken as an
indication of the political sentiment,
and we. Bee no reason why it should not
be, Connecticut will be a bitter pill for
the democracy in November. It looks
now as though not a single state, north
of the Mason and Dixon's line would re
main in the democratic cam p.
A writer in the Prairie Farmer adyo
cates the raising of a leaner breed of
hogs, and to accomplish this suggests
the crossing of breeds by procuring Im
proved Yorkshire and Tamworth males,
These he says produce more limb and
side, and are in other, words, lanky. If
this is the only object to be obtained
would not the crossing with the razor-
back, the famous trotting pigs of .Georgia
accomplish the same result? There is
said to be nothing of them but legs,
bristles and tusks.

A new monthly publication, Science
Progress, has made its appearance in

J. O. Wilsok, Contractor and
Builder, Sulphur Springs, Texas,
thus speaks of Ayer'a Pills:
" Ayer's Pills are the best medicine I
ever tried; and, in my judgment, no
better general remedy could be devised.
I have used them in my family and
-recommended them to my friends and
employes for more than twenty years. ,
To my certain knowledge, many cases
of the following complaints have been
by the use of Ayer's Pills alone: Third
day chills, dumb ague, bilious fever,
sick headache, rheumatism, flux, dys
pepsia, constipation, and hard colds. I
know that a moderate use of Ayer's
Pills, continued for a few days or weeks,
as the nature of the complaint required,
would be found an absolute cure for the
disorders I have named above."
" I have been selling medicine for
eight years, and I can safely say -that
Ayer's Pills give better satisfaction
than any Other Pill I ever sold." J. J.
