No one hears an j thing of any In
tereet being taken in the elections lu
the southern states. No one seems to
care to hear the news from Maryland
or Virginia or Mississippi. Everyone
knows how theso states must go before
a single ballot is cast, and it is a matter
of absolute Indifference whether the
majority Is 10,000 or 60,000. The elec
tions in the south area fraud as well
as a farce.
Now that smokeless powder Is an
assured fact, the next move In the Hue
of progress towards the relief of
patient and long suffering public, Is to
be an odorless whiskey. Recent ex'
periments have culminated in the pro-
ductlon of a liquid which is unde
niably whiskey, but whloh leaves no
suspicion of an odor upon the breath.
The new find is precltely the counter
part of the old stuff except in this par
ticular. In appearance and tasie no
difference can be detected. But al
though it possesses the same deadly
qualities, the most stupendous jag will
have the breath as sweet as that of tha
new born babe.

Change of Trains.
The mine workings undor the Ponnsyl'
aoia railroad, near Wiggan's station,
commenced to cave in again yesterday and
worked so heavy that the company decided

that the tracks will bo In good condition by
Striking it Rich.
About fifteen years ago D. J. Williams
of town, secured a tontine policy from an
infurance company. Subsequently he se
cured another of the same character, but,
in time, he dropped tho former and con
tinued making payments on the latter.
