COMMISSIONS ARE LEGAL.
Attorney-General Idleman has sub
mitted Lis opinion on the status of the
state commissions. He deuidas that the
railroad and other commissioners are
legally entitled to hold their offices until
, the legislature meets again. We are
, now, and have always been, opposed to
the system of commissions, and we have
been more outspoken against-the rail
road commission than any or all the
others. At the same time, we bad no
: fault to find with the composition of
' that commission. It was the commis
sion, and not the members thereof, that
we oDjectad to. As the commission is
to continue to exist, we congratulate the
members thereof on their good fortune.
It is not everyone in these degenerate
days that can have a sinecure and a
special car at hand all the time ; but the
board of railroad - commissioners have
The dispatches recently stated that
Governor McKinley had eaid that if the
republican party put a free silver plank
in its platform that he would not. only
not accept the nomination for the presi
dency, but that he would leave his
party. It is not at all likely that Gov
ernor McKinley said anything of the
kind, or that be said an j thing at all on
the subject that he could avoid. Gover
nor McKinley is a politician, and does
not take the trouble to express an
opinion that will only serve to make
him enemies. He is like Reed or Alli
son, or any other politician, and would
take the nomination for president no
matter what the platform contained.
Mr. McKinley would like to climb into
the presidential chair, and he will not
' be particular as to the kind of stepladder
. Joaquin Miller comes back from Ha
waii with a tale of torture and inquisi
tion. Miller, it must be remembered, is
a poet, and consequently is allowed con
siderable license. His story is good un
til another is told, but we fancy that it
oversteps the bounds of its acknowl
edged license, and partakes of the char
acterisucs oi lousiness. Joaquin was
always an aggressive fellow in rhyme.
Today as been pleasant and warm, al
though clouds hung heavy and threat
ening. Tonight is a little cooler than
the day, and still the indications are for
a storm. The past week has been very
cnangable and disagreeable, no two
days bearing the same temperature.
The range has been from cold to warm,
and storms ot every concievable nature.
Last Tuesday night the mercury fell four
degrees lower than at any time last win
ter. There has been some rain, and a
great deal more, is needed. Complaint
everywhere is that the ground is too
dry for plowing, and many places must
be left uncultivated unless there is
enough falling weather to wet the
ground. But with all the dryness,
grass is looking well and there is plenty
to support stock.
Sheep are in excellent condition for
this time of the year. There has been a
sheep buyer in this county, but I have
not heard of any offers or any sales.
Cattle have been selling at $10 and $12
for yearlings and $14 and $15 for 2-year-olds.

AN ALARMING STATEMENT
HOW BAD HABITS ARB FORMED.
The New York Tribune says : " The habit of
taking headache powders ' is increasing to an
alarming; extent among a great number of wo
rn throughout the country. These powders as
thear name indicates, are claimed by the manu
facturers to be a positive and speedy cure for any
form of headache. In many cases their chief
ingredient is morphine, opium, cocaine or some
other equally injurious drug' having- a tendency
to deaden pain. The habit of taking them u
easily formed, but almost impossible to shake
oft". Women usually begin taking them to re
lieve a raging- headache and soon resort to the
powder to alleviate any little pain or ache they
may be subjected to, and finally like the nor-
fihine or opium fiend, fret into the habit of taking
hem regularly, imagining; that they are in pain
if they happen to miss their regular dose."
In nine cases out of ten, the trouble is
in the stomach and liver. Take a simple
laxative and liver tonic and remove the
offending matter which deranges the
stomach and causes the headache. Dr.
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are composed
entirely of the purest, concentrated,
vegetable extracts. One Pellet is a
dose; suear-coated, .easily swallowed;
once used, always' tn favor. They posi
tively cure sick headache and. remove
the disposition to it.
Mr. E. Vaboason, of Otter Lake, Lapeer Co.,
mien., writes: "i not
infrequently have an at
tack of the headache.
It usually comes on in
the forenoon. At my
dinner I eat my regular
meal, and take one or
two of Doctor Pierce's
Pleasant Pellets imme
diately after, and in the
course of an hour my
headache is cured and
no bad effects. I feel
better every way for
having taken them
not worse, as is usual
after taking- other kinds
of pills. ' Pleasant Pel
lets are worth more
than their weight in
gold, if for nothing else
than to cure headache."
