Like a Drowning Man.
‘‘Five years ago a disease the
doctors called dyspepsia took such
hold of me that I could scarcely
go,” writes Geo. S. Marsh, well-
known attorney of Nocona, Tex
“I took quantities of pepsin and
other medicines but nothing help
ed me. As a drowning man grabs
at a straw I grabbed at Kodol.

after a few bottles am sound and

ration which exactly reproduces
the natural digestive juices and
consequently is the only one which
digests any good food and cures
any form of stomach trouble.

Receipts of cattle at the stock
yards in Omaha for three weeks
ending April 12th, 1902, were _ 5,-
000 heard in excess of the receipts
for the corresponding week in
1901 and for the proceeding two
weeks the excess in receipts this
year over last year was approxi
mately the same figure. This
, does not look much like there was
such a great shortage in cattle as
the beef trust alleges as a reason
for advancing prices.
Old Soldier’s Experience.
M. M. Austin, a civil war veter-
en, of Winchester, Ind., writes:

New Life Pills, which worked
wonders for her health.” They
always do. Try them. Only 25c

There has lately been a fresh
crop of complatnts in sermons and
magazine articles that the young
women of America ®r| ceasing to
care for the home. The higher
education is supposed to be re
sponsible for this, and when wo
men get the ballot it is predicted
that the disastrous change will be
complete. Those who fear that
equal suffrage, will give a death
blow to the home should have
their nerve9 calmed by the facts
related at tha tkw National
Sutaea Convention, in Wasn!:^"
ton, by Miss Theodosia Ammons,
teacher of domestic science at the
State Agricultural College of Col
orado. She said:
“Since women obtained the bal
lot, work for many reforms has
been carried on with great success.
One of the chief lines of effort
has been to establish industrial
education. We propose to intro
duce domestic and sanitary cours
es in all schools.
“The women voters of Colorado
do not neglect their homes. In
everything we try to emphasize
the home and. to teacli our girls to
be good home-makers. We are
laying stress upon scientific house
keeping. Believing that the home
is the center, of everything, we
have started at the Chautauqua,at
Boulder, a model cottage to show
the very best methods of house
keeping. It was said long ago
that woman was the natural sani
tary reformer. We are trying to
introduce sanitation as nearly per
fect as possible. Increased atten
tion has been given in Colorado to
home-making and improved sani
tation siuce women have had the
“A large fuel and iron company
employs women as instructors in
the science of nutrition, domestic
economy, etc., and is sending
them around to teach these things
in the great camps. The courses
are free and anyone may learn.
They are thus reaching the for
eigners, who need instruction
most. I am always sorry to see
women at the East sending in
protests against equal suffrage. It
seems to me a dreadful thing for
women to do. They do not know
what they are doing.
“In Colorado the women’s vote
has been .very large in proportion
to their numbers. The best, the
most intellectual, and most rep
resentative women in our state
are and have been believers
equal suffrage, and it was never so
strong in popular favor as it is
to-day. Those who have said the
contrary have perhaps had some
personal reason for speaking ill of
women as voters. Certainly the
facts will not bear them out.”
A HOUSE OP MEMORIES.
It is much to be hoped that the
good and patriotic people of
Washington, in- Wilkes county,
will find a way to preserve as a
public trurb and treasure the old
county couet house in which was
held the last cabinet meeting of
the confederate govermneut.
Other peoples in other lands
are holding in sacred preservation
places and houses of less historic
significance. Today the impor
tance of the old building as a
landmark may not seem so great,
, but in t’hogo days to come when

ate last days of the confederate war
are read throughout civilization
with .thrills of reverence and ad
miration, and when eager devotees
of eternal world principles come
to our country seeking to look
upon the memorials of those aw
ful times, the old house at Wash
ington would be one of absorbing
interest and awe.
Tho people of Wilkes are a no
ble and patriotic people and they
are not so strained in fortunes as
to need urgently the scant money
value of the historic house where
the heroic Davis sat last at the
counsel board with such trusty
and knightly lieutenauta as Rea-
gin, Mallory, Benjamin and their
colleagues. It is a place scarce
second in its valued memories to
the old capitol at Montgomery
and the old executive mansion at
Again, we say, it would rejoice
all the survivors and inheritors of
the lost cause and its memories to
know that the generous and chiv
alrous people of Wilkes had voted
to keep the old house intact and
make it a precious relic to future
generations of southrons.

soaring skyward as a result of the
