him into the field. The result of Ihe
battle is awaited with great anxiety
by Cuba's friends In this ' country,
they feeling that it may be decisive.
It is quite probable that within the
next two days jwe shall have, news
that will indicate the final result of
the struggle. ; Should Maceo hold his
position the blow will be fatal to the
Spanish cause, while the contrary re
sult will make things look black in
deed for Cuba. .
At Chicago, about a week ago,
Warren B. Mason was killed by the
sudden closing of a folding bed. He
arose to ascertain the time, and in
getting back jarred the bed so-that
the heavy top came down. He was
in a sitting posture, and the top of
the bed caught him, bending him
down in such' a manner as to break
his back. Suiely no man knows
when his time shall come. When a
man's bed joins the vast number of
other things that rise up, or fall
down; to crush the life out of him,
wherei shall he find safety? To
what sudden and terrifying dangers
are modern inventors leading us?
Has it come to this that an insensate
and measly bed shall conspire to a
man's undoing? Shall man go to
his bed with feat' and trembling as
to the guillotine? Shall he fold the
draperies of his couch about him
with, the pleasing prospect that the
sheets may be winding ones ere the
,dawn of day? Shall the prayer
learned at his mother's knee, "If I
should die before I wake," be bi ought
forcibly to the mind of the old, and
bring the careless sinner to his knees
from very fear? Shall he rise from
his couch in thankfulness and ap
proach it at night in dread? Heaven
forbid ! Sickness tind sudden death
are v frequent enough now, but from
the treacherous bed that smites one
to his death in the silent watches of
the night, may the saints prcserye
us. " . . .
In three weeks congress will be
again in session, and our. valued ex
change, the .Congressional Globe,
will again, resume publication, en
cumber the mails, Jond the editorial
table, and finally find the waste
basket. It is one of the most in
tensely stupid publications foisted
upon a helpless public, but for this
it is not to blame. Senators and
congressmen furnish the copy in
stead of newspaper meu. There are
speeches handed down to posterity
in its 'pages that would jar the pop
corn off the Christmas tree, or make
a campaign orator put a seal on bis
mouth and swear off talking forever.
The rains are coming up the river,
acd the iver is coming up itself
since McKinley"s election.
THE, ASYLUM MUDDLE.
The decision of the supreme court
in the branch asylum matter is no
doubt in accordance with ' the law;
but what effect will it have on the
treasurer or the secretary of state if
called upon to issue or cash warrants
in favor of state institutions outside
of Salem ? Can the members of the
supreme' court, for instance, draw
their extra allowance of $1500 per
annum for holding their term at Pen
dleton ? , Or, for that matter, can the
secretary or treasurer issue or draw
a warrant for any of the state insti
tutions not located near, but at
Salem ? In speaking of the present
condition of the branch asylum mat
ter the Baker City Democrat says: .
The financial status of the Eastern
Oregon branch asylum muddle is
about this: About $500 has been
drawn on the Eastern Oregon asylum
appropriation including one attorney
fee of $250. All necessary expenses
connected with the as3'lum will have
come out of the appropriation
and is the result ot colds and
sudden climatic changes.

Aug. J. Bogel, the leading druggist of
Sbreveport, La., says: "Dr. King's
New Discovery is the only thing that

Satford, Ariz., writes : "Dr. King's New

never fails, and is a sore . cure for Con

say enough for its merits." Dr. King's
New -Discovery for Con&umption,
