CLEVELAND AXD THE OFFICE
The president-elect is said, by his
intimates, to bs in favor of civil ser
vice reform, and opposed to the doc
trine of dividing the spoils exclu
sively among the victors.
A personal friend of Cleveland's
now in San Francisco and who claims
to have been in a position to be fully
conversant with his views on the
question of civil service reform, states
in an interview: '
"Perhaps you think the task is too
much like one of the seven labors of
Hercules, and that no matter how
good his intentions are to carry the
principles of civil service reform, he
will, in a few months, yield to the
tremendous pressure that will be
brought upon him, and 'place himself
in the hands of his friends.' Now,
you do not know the man at all. His
oapacity for work is something mar
vellous; he thinks nothing of putting
in from twelvo to eighteen hours'
work a day in fact he has devoted
that amount of each day to his gub
ernatorial duties moat of the time he
hasbeeu at Albany. Since the ad
ministration of Jackson fwitb, per
haps, the exception of, Lincoln), we
have not had a man in the White
House, who had at once his physical
capacity for work, and his mental
willingness to perform it. Grant
had the physical constitution to
labor twenty hours out of the
twenty-four, but ho had little
taste for details, and was inclined to
leave them to his secretaries. Not
so with Cleveland, however. He will
go into the "presidency prepared to
serve the people, and he will do it
with heart and soul which, in a
materialistic sense, would mean, I
suppose, with brain and brawn. His
refusal to accede to John Kelly's un
reasonable demands after he became
governor, shows that no faction can
move him, and his unswerving devo
tion to the principles he enunciated
in his inaugural, point out the fact
that his consistency in doing right is
Relative to the present scramble
for patronage the same gentleman
"I see that some of our local politi
cians think of going cast to have the
patronage in the state fixed. That
will, I can assure them, prove a prof
itless task. The man who asks Grover
Cleveland for an office is just the
man who does not get it."'
The correctness of the views ex
pressed in the foregoing upon the
course that will be followed by Cleve
land in the distribution of patronage
may not be questioned, as they are
in consonance with plans adopted by
him after going into the office of
governor of New York, in filling the
long list of officers to be appointed
to the civil and military departmonts.
At that time Governor Cleveland re
fused to be inveigled from the path
of duty by the -wiles of politicians, or
to be misled by pleas of "party ex
pediency," but made his appoint
ments irrespective of party and in
the interest of the public service.
That a conservative policy will be
adopted by President Cleveland was
forecast by Samuel J. Eandall in his
speech at the Tammany Hall cele
bratibn in New York recently, when
he said: We must not expect parti
sanship alone to come from the next
administration. The Democratic
party must .redeem all its promises

A TOUCHING INCIDENT.
A Votintr CSIpI'h Drmnttfn- How It

ami Nlnrtllnjr Truths
The St. Ixiuis KxproM, on tlio Nw
York Central Iload, was crovulml one
evening recently. hcn at wc of tho
way stations an oldcrly gontlomnn c
coii.psnicil liy a young lady entered the
crs and final ly trcurcd a scat. As Uic
conductor approached luc pair, the
young lady arose, and in a pleading
"Please, sir, don't let him carry ine to
the asylum. I am not crary; I am a lit
tle tired, but not mad. Oh J no indeed.
"Won't you please have papa take me
The conductor, accustomed though he
was to all phases of humanity, looked
with astonishment at the pair, as did the
other passengers in their vicinity. A
few words from the father, however, suf
ficed, and the conductor passed on, -while
the young lady turned her face to the
window. The writer chanced to be
seated iust behind the old gentleman,
and could not forego the desire to speak
to him. "Withascd face and a trem
bling voice the father said:
"My daughter has been attending the
seminary in a distant town and was sue
ceeding remarkably. Her natural qual
ities, together with a great ambition,
placed her in the front ranks of the
school, but she studied too closely, was
not careful of her health, and her poor
brain has been turned. I am taking her
to a private asylum where wo hope she
will soon be better."
At the next station the old man and
his daughter left the cars, hut the inci
dent, bo suggestive of Shakespeare's
Ophelia, awakened strange thoughts
in the mind of the writer. It is an abso
lute fact that while the population of
America increased thirty per cent, dur
ing the decade between 1S70 and 1SS0
the insanity increase was over one hun
dred and Uariyfivc per cent for the same
period. Travelers by rail, by boat, or
in carriages in any part of the land see
large and elaborate building?, and in
quire what they are S
Insane asylums !
Who builds them?
Each State; every county; hundreds of
private individuals, and in all cases
their capacity is taxed to the utmost.
Because men, in business and the pro
fessions, women, at home or in society,
and children at school overtax their
mental and nervous forces by work,
worry, and care. This brings about ner
vous disorders, indigestion, and eventu
It is not always trouble with tho head
that causes insanity. It far oftener arises
from evils in other parts of the body. The
nervous system determines the status of
the brain. Any one who has periodic
headaches, occasional dizziness, a dim
ness of vision, a ringing in the ears; a
feverish head, frequent nausea, or a sink
ing at the pit of the stomach, should
take warning at once. The stomach and
head are in direct sympathy, and if one
be impaired the other can never bo in
order. Acuta dyspepsia causes more in
sane suicides than any other known
agency, and the man, woman, or child
whose stomach is deranged is not and
cannot be safe from tho coming on at
any moment of mania in some ouu of its
many terrible forms.
The value of moderation and the im
perative necessity of care in keeping tho
stomach right must therefore be clear to
all. The least appearance of indiges
tion, or mal-assimilation of food should
be watched as carefully as the first ap
proach of an invading army. Many
means have been advocated for meeting
such attacks but all have heretofore
been more or les3 defective.
There can be little doubt, however,
that for the purpose of regulating the
stomach, toning it up to proper action,
keeping its nerves in a normal condition
and purifying the Mood, "Warner's
Tippecanoe The Best, excels all ancient
or recent discoveries. It is absolutely
pure and vegetable; it i3 certain to add
vigor to adults, while it cannot by any
possibility injure even a child. The fact
that it was used in the days of the fa
mous Harrison family, i3 proof positive of
its merit, as it has so thoroughly with
stood the test of time. As a tonic and
rcvivitier it is simply wonderful. It has
relieved the agony of the stomach in
thousands of cases; soothed the tired
nerves; preojeed peaceful sleep and
averted the coming on of a mania more
to be dreaded than death itself.
