The New York "Herald'' lias issued a report
of the result of its lirst canvas of the political situa
tion. The ''Herald's" activity in making oleetion
forecasts is well known, so well known, in fact, that
it is not necessary to say that they are made honest
ly and without any view to influencing the wobbling
voters. It is, in short. just a form of newspaper
enterprise in which the "Herald'' takes great pride
and in which it is quite as successful as any other
expert observer. Its ante-elect ion estimates there
lore are always interesting and as in the present
e mtest its are practically the only figures that have
been given out from any source that gives them ad
ditional interest to the general reader.
At the opening of the campaign a Republican
authority estimated that there were eighteen sure
Republican States with 2uo electoral votes; fourteen
mi e Democratic States with toil votes and thirteen
doubtful States with 117 votes. Ihs Republican
States were: California, Illinois, lowa, Kansas,
Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Ne
braska, Now Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Ore
gon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Vermont, Wash
ington and Wyoming. Ilis Democratic States:
Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky,
Lousiaua, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North
Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and
Virginia. The States in his doubtful column were:
Colorado, Connecticut, Deleware, Idaho, Indiana,
Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Rhode
Island, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin.
Since the State conventions in New York that
State has been conceded by all impartial observes to
the Democrats and out of the twelve remaining the
"Herald" has reports from ten. Idaho, West Vir
ginia and Indiana it estimates will go Democratic,
thus bringing the sure Democratic vote up to 223.
Utah, Delaware, New Jersey, Wisconsin and Mon
tana it considers liepublican, and that brings the
conceded Republican vote up to 234. It has no re
port oil Nevada or Rhode Island and it considers
Colorado and Connecticut as doubtful. These four
states have nineteen votes, and the winner will have
to get three of them.
This certainly draws the matter lo a mighty
line point and the strain upon the managers at the
two party headquarters must lie of the insomnia
producing kind. It is pretty safe to say, however,
thi'.t Tom Taggart is suffering less than Corlolyou.
lu the lirst place he has the more sanguine tempera
ment and in the second place he stands a better
chance of making way with a majority of the States
upon which the great contest promises to turn.
Senator Davis' letter of aeeoptancc of the
Democratic nomination for Vice President reveals
the conservative'mind of a capable and experienced
business man. It is brief, pithy and pointed and
after observing that the "public mind is being dis
illusioned of the false pretence of the Republican
party "that the material prosperity of the country
depends upon ils own ascendency," he reverts lo
the wasteful extravagance of the Roosevelt admin
istration and amplifies the figures quoted in his
speech of acceptance on that subject.
Senator Davis doesn't complain that expendi
tures of government have increased in the aggregate
with the increase of population. That is natural
and reasonable. But he complains that the per
capita expense has multiplied from 82.0l in 18(>0 to
?7.11 hist year and the cost of maintaining the army
has increased from 810,5(10,00(1 in 18(10, when the
vast Western border required constant patrol to
secure protection front the Indians, to 8115,000,00(1
last year, when there was no greater use for troops
than a possible disturbance at some Sunday school
Following the lines laid by Judge Parker in his
admirable letter of acceptance, Senator Davis ap.
proves the Panama canal piojeet but deprecates the
sinister manner by which it was begun, lie is
equally clear in denouncing imperialism, excessive
tariff taxation, inimical trust organizations, the re
cently aroused race prejudices and fraud in tln;
public service. He expresses coniplet confidence
in the "courage, character and discretion" of his as
sociate on the ticket, Judge Parker, and altogether
his letter is a model public paper.
It cost the people of the United States, on an
average, *'!4. VI per head for food in |.s!J7, w hen
Republican rule began at Washington. This year it
costs ?52.68—an increase of over 51 per cent.
In other words, it takes £1.51 to buy as much
food now as a dollar would buy seven years ago. A
man earning a dollar a day was better off then, as
far as that part of his living expenses went, than
one earning 51.50 a day is now. And according to
Commissioner Wright, of the Department of Labor,
food absorbs over 11 per cent, of the total expendi
tures of the average family.
The increase of 817. *7 per head in the cost of
this item represents an increase of ss!t.3<; in the ex
penditure of the ordinary family of live. Adding
£IS.IIB for the enhanced cost of clothes, we find
that a workman's wages have to stretch 8107.44
further now on two necessary items of expense than
they did in 181)7.
President Roosevelt said in his telegram of
condolence to Senator Hoar's son: "The loss is
no! yours only, but of all those who believe in the
lofty standard of purity, integrity and fearlessness
in public life."
Former President Cleveland said: Ilis ability,
his highmindediiess and his freedom from political
trickery furnish an example of a useful life which
may well be imitated by all those intrusted by their
countrymen with public duties."
Secretary Tuft said: "Not in years have we
had in public life so noble an example of the old
Puritan stock."
I hese tributes arc from men whose policies in
some instances Senator Hour vehemently opposed.
I hey convey their lesson to every young man atnbi-
I ions to make a name for himself in public affairs.
Character still counts for something in American
In New ork, where CMellism is the paramount
issue, th", Republicans wish to discuss national iptcs
tions to the exclusion of State questions. In .Massa
chusetts, where reciprocity is the chief issue, they
wish to discuss State questions to the exclusion of
national questions. In Colorado and Missouri they
are for national issues against State issues. In Illi
nois, where there is a popular Republican candidate
for (tovernor, they prefer local issues. Everywhere
it is a campaign of evasion.

According to Chemists Voorhoes and

one sample of brown middlings which
consists of nearly one-third rice hulls
und one sample of wheat bran that
contained considerable of the finely

The dark colored outer hulls of tho
coffee berry have long been employed
as a coffee substitute, but the use of

(ian girls are married very young.
V'ith us tliey would still be considered
childreu and would bes in bll>s and pin
nfores. Hut over there girls of twelve
are considered of full marriageable
p.ge, and it is not at all uncommon to
find wives of six or eight or ten years.
When a proposal ol' marriage is made
the father of the young girl is applied
to, and the following style of answer
is considered stylish and elegant:
"1 have received with respect the
marks of your goodness. The choice
that you deign to make of my daugh
ter to become the wife of your son
shows that you esteem my poor daugh
ter more than she deserves. My
daughter is coarse and stupid, and I
have not had the talent to bring her up
well. Vet I shall nevertheless glory in
obeying you on this occasion."
This Is the proper and accepted mode
of reply. But, fortunately for the girl
wives of the east, individuals are Lofton
kinder than the law itself, so that a
family is often bound together by hap
py and cordial relations, such as could
not exist If a man really felt his wife
to be coarse nnd stupid.

Figures Juggled by the Administrn
tion Officials to Sustain Its
Policy und Credit.
As an Illustration of how figures
may be juggled to prove most anything:
that is desired, Carroll D. Wright, Com
missioner of Labor, who prepared a
report on the cost of living, which re
port is being used for campaign pur
poses by the Kopublican committee,
gives a few comparisons to bear out
his contention that the increase in food
stuffs has been on the average in
A comparison is made between the
cost of butter and vinegar. The for
mer, It Is shown, has increased in
price 112.9 per cent, and the claim Is
set up that this increase is overcome
by the decrease of 88 per cent, in
Dy comparing these two articles the
cost of living remains stationary by
setting a 12 per cent, increase la
the prioe of buttor against a 12 per
cent, decrease In the price of vinegar,
yet the butter bill of tho average
family must bo fifty times as great UiS
the vinegar bill.
In Mr. Wright's table on fuel and
lighting we find that the average price
han risen to 139.8. This table includes
a number of different kinds of coal,
caudles and petroleum, also coke and
matches. Coke and matches show a
decrease in price, while all the others
show an increase:
Increased in price:
Anthracite coal, chestnut 137.7
Decreased in price:
Matches 85.4
Average for both articles... 111.5
Which goes to show that the co3t of
fuel and lighting has not increased a
great deal, although many men will
think that the decrease In the price of
matches is kardly a fair set off against
the increase in the price of coal.
Concerning the alleged "statistics"
furnished from the National Bureau of
Labor and given circulation by the Re
publican Campaign Committee with a
view to showing that the average
wages earned in comparison with the
cost of living is equal to, if not greater
than under Democratic rule, a few
figures may not be amiss.
It seems to be an uncontroverted
fact that wages have not increased
within tho past ten years to any per
ceptible degree, and tho "statistics,"
prepared under the direction of 1. >n.
Carroll D. Wright, admit that the cost
of food has increased approximately a
little over 5 per cent.
In his figures, Mr. Wright submits
a table showing prices which have in
creased and those which have de
creased. In the column of increases the
commodities most essential and there
fore mostly used appear, while in the
opposing column, many of the articles
enumerated are by no means neces
The table follows:
increased in price:
Flour 104.5
Butter 112.9
Codfish 318.fi
Cheese 121.6
Potatoes 126.2
Beans 130.2
Milk 127.5
Eggs 191t.6
Average price 129.3
Decreased in price:
Soda Crackers 90.5
Vinegar 88.0
Dried Apples 72.8
Prunes 07.8
Nutmegs C 7.1
Soda 04.6
Kice 87.0
Corn Starch 03.0

Coming somewhat in tho light of a
man endorsing hiH own note, or felici
tating himself, is a letter published
recently in Paris from the pen of
former Minister Bunau-Varllla, sus
taining President Roosevelt's course in
the Panama coup.
Inasmuch as Minister Bunau-Varilla
was Mr. Roosevelt's guide and ally in
the snap judgment taken upon the Re
public of Colombia, and inasmuch HISO
as he was one of the chief beneficiaries
under the whole transaction, he could
hardly do less than applaud the act

A special telegram to the New York
World, from Pittsburg, says:
"Henry Clay Frick has been ap
pointed the financial head of the Re
publican campaign in western Penn
sylvania, the object being to use him
to secure financial aid from the manu
facturers of this section."
The man who made this appoint
ment, if anybody did, is George B.
Cortelyou, who WAS Secretary of Com
merce (and presumably the chief Gov
ernment hunter for trust secrets), and
IS Chairman and chief fat-fryer for
the Republican National Committee.
Enthusiastic Democrats are deriving
considerable pleasure in figuring over
the recent Democratic gain in Maine.
The returns show a Democratic gain
of 30 per cent, and a Republican gain
of IB per cent, over the vote of 11102.
Similar changes elsewhere would give
New York to Parker by a plurality of
87,000, New Jersey by 5,000, Rhode
Island by 0,000, Maryland by 32,000,
Nebraska by 8,000 and Utah by 300.
These, with the States carried by
Bryan in 1900, would be exactly enough
to elect. In addition, Delaware, West
Virginia and Indiana would be In
doubt if these percentages of gain
were to prevail.
Gen. J. W. St. Clair, of West Vir
ginia, at the Waldorf to-day, had this
to say about his State: "West Vir

Studied terrifically,
Clothed very carefully,
Dieted sparefullv,
A ired systematieally,
Bathed most emphatically.
Played with quite drearily,
Punished Sponeerially,
Sweet infantility,
Steeped in gentility,
Santa Clans banished,
Mother Goose vanished,
Where are the babies,
The real human babies,
The olden time knew?
1 larnesscd seholastically,
Drilled superdrastically,
Cultured prodigiously,
Lectured religiously,
Classified rigidly,
Reasoned with frigidly,
Loved analytically,
Listened to critically,
Dosed with the "ologies,"
Hushed through the colleges,
Crammed pedagi>gicall?,
"Finished" most logically,
Where is the chilhood,
The fresh, happy childhood,
Tlie olden time knew?
Children successively
Heared thus aggressively,
Posing eternally,
Wearied infernally,
Planned for initially,
"Formed" artificially,
Will they submit to it?
Never cry "Quit!" to it ?
Will not analysis
Stop from paralysis?
Till our distraction
Ends with reaction,
Brings back the childhood,
The bright, careless childhood,
The olden time knew?

Sleeplessness Is a
Sign of Nerve Trou
ble and Should
Be Looked To.
There aro threo different manifesta
tions of sleeplessness.
First, hardly to sleep a wink nil night,
second, to lie awake a long time before
falling: asleep; third, to fall asleep soon,
waking up after several hours and then
find it hard to sleep again.
They mean that somewhere in the
nerve fibres, somewhere In tho brain'
cells, somewhero in tho blood vessels
that carry blood to tho brain, something
is radically wrong, and must bo righted,
or the end may bo worse than death.
To right it, take Dr. Miles' Nervine.
Somo other symptoms of nerve trou
ble are: Dizziness, Headache, Back-*
ache, Worry, Fretfulness, Irritability,'
Melancholy, Laek «112 Ambition.
They indicate diseases which may lead
to Epilepsy, Fits, Bt. Vitus' Dance,
Nervous Prostration, Paralysis, Insanity.)
Nothing will give such quick and last
ing relief as Dr. Miles' Nervine.
"My husband had been sick for weeks,
cnuld not sit up to have his bed made.
With all the medical help we could get
ho continued to grow worse, lie could
neither sleep OP cnt. Our baby girl was
sent away, and all callers barred, be
cnuso he could *ot stand a bit of talk
ing. I read of a ease >rf nervous pros
tration cured by Dr. Miles' Restorative
Nervine. We began gft'tng it to him,
and in a few dayi be was able to be
dressed. From that time ho steadily
improved. Nervine saved his life.'*—•
