It is, perhaps, a mere rumor that Mr,
Gladstone will seek an opportunity to
Te-enter "parliament not as -a party
representative, but simply because of
the persecuted Armenians but it may
well be that it ia his desire to lead a
movement for the relief and protection
of those who are suffering martyrdom.
There is, most surely, a vacancy waiting
to be filled in that situation, and we can
easily conceive the disquiet and indig
nation with which he will regard the
refage of lies which the present premier
of the English government is setting
forth as his trust and hope. Lord SaliS'
bury pretends to give credit to the sul.
tan for his promises to reform, and then
'when be docs not carry tbein out says
he never pledged England to fight the
saltan, "if he did not govern well
But the truth is that under the treaty
of Berlin, England did become absolutely
responsible to the world to see to it :
ii'et, ibat Kussia did not occupy
Turkey, and second, that Turkey did not
oppress the Armenian Chiistians; and
England has leceived her pay in Cy
prus. Lord Salisbury says that time
must be given to the sultan to enforce
, the reforms he has promised. It is an
insult to the intelligence of the world
savage or civilized, to talk thus. Time
tt enforce the reform of stopping the
horrors the report of which no one has
the nerve to read in full ! To say, as
was said recently by a gentleman with
in our hearing, that . the Armenian
Christians are only comparable with
Warm Spring Indian Christians, is not
to touch the question at all. It is not
true. We do not need to go to Armenia
to find that out; but it has nothing to
do with the question if it were true,
Those who have visited the Armenian
colony in Fresno, or have met any of
the many representatives of that race
who are seeking the means of higher
education in American school or college,
know that this comparison is wholly
misleading. Bat it has 'nothing what
ever to do with the question. A Warm
Spring Indian, even without the meas
ure of civilization to which he may have
attained, is entitled to absolute protec
tion of life and property by his suzerain
As we Baid six months ago, we repeat:
- "Oh! for an hour of Cromwell."
The adding ot Quay to the list of can
didates for the Republican nomination
makes it time for someone to move that
the nominations be closed. Boss Piatt
may be proposed next or Joe Simon.
While no one takes Quay's candidacy
seriously the mention of his name in
connection with the presidency is a trav
esty upon that high office. Politics, as
now conducted, makes bosses a neces
sary evil, but men like Quay and Piatt
should be taught to keep within proper
limitations. .. "'."."'
Ex-Consul Waller will be released by
xhe French government, and the United
States agreea to ask no indemnity in his
"behalf. Our government is convinced
from the study of the evidence, so far
as it has been furnished, that Waller
was justly convicted, and Secretary Ol
ney says his offense was "willful and
culpable." . It is not at all in his favor
that he bad previously been convicted,
.-as now is learned, by a consular court, of
very serious offenses. Waller may well
be grateful that he gets off as well as be
does. - "
The closing of the abattoir at Linnton
is another slap at the horse. Living or
dead, in cans or packages of fertilizer,
he is without a place in the estimation
of man. There seems nothing to do bat
for the horse to retire from business and
consider his usefulness over.
FRUIT AS A MEDICINE. '
More Virtue In a Basket or Berries A nan
In a Whole Drug Store.
Very few people are aware of: the
medicinal qualities of grapes; but these
they possess. The pulp is nutritious,
and the juice contains sugar, tannic
acid,' bitartrate of potassium, tartrate
cf calcium, common salt and sulphate
of potassium. Without doubt, says
Scientific American, the woman who
cultivates the habit of eating- a great
deal of fruit is the gainer of health and
appearance. The grapefruit, or shad
dock, so called from its discoverer,
Lieut. Shaddock, or, to mention its soft
Chinese name, pumelo, is highly prized
by those who live in malarial localities.
It is a charming rival to quinine and;
boneset, and is driving them from the
field. She who eats her grapefruit with
a spoon irom tne natural cup, or rel
ishes it served as a salad, may gladden
her heart with the reflection that she
is not only pleasing her palate, but
benefiting her health. Like oranges
and lemons, the grapefruit has great
medicinal virtues. If you are of a bil
ious temperament eat grapefruit; if
fever threatens, eat grapefruit, but in
this latter case do so only at the advice
cf a physician, as there may be certain
tendencies which the grapefruit would
only aggravate. The complaint is often
made that the fruit is extremely.bitter
and unpleasant. It is only the white
inner rind which is so, and this should
be carefully removed.
THE COMING FAD.
A Woll-Known Woman Thinks
Mrs. John Stetson, of Boston, thinks
that driving will be the chief amuse
ment of the coming woman. She be
lieves that the new woman, as well as
the old-fashioned woman, can find few
things in her life more enjoyable than
a spin behind a good horse or team, and
that, if she holds the reins herself, she
will quickly learn that it adds immeas
urably to her pleasure.
The exhilarating effect of the swift
action, the bracing air filling the lungs
and sending the blood dancing through
the veins, the trout-like pull on the
lines that communicates to the reins
wcman something of the spirit of her
horses, the absorbing interest felt in
overcoming the little difficulties of the
road, in negotiating abrupt turns and
in meeting and passing other vehicles
well, there's nothing like it, accord
ing to this enthusiastic horsewoman,

Two Lives Saved.
Mrs. Phoebe Thomas, of Junction City
111. was told by her doctors she had
Consumption and that there was no hope
for her, but two" bottles of Dr. King's
New Discovery completelv cured her
and she says it saved her life. Mr. Thos.
Eggers, 139 Florida St. San Francisco,
suffered from' a dreadful cold, approach
ing Consumption, tried without reeult
everything else then bought one bottle
of Dr. King's New Discovery and in two
weeks was cured, lie is naturally thank
ful. It is such results, of which these
are samples, that prove the wonderful
efficacy of t his medicine in Coughs and
colds. Free trial bottles at Blakeley &
