By Democrats of Indiana in Their
THREE STATES ON RECORD
Editor Watterson of Courier-Journal
Fall Into Line and Prophecies Ne
Democrats of Indiana, in convention,
at Indianapolis, Thursday, adopted a
platform strongly indorsing W. J. Bry
an for the presidency, and selected a
state ticket for all offices except gov
ernor and reporter of the supreme
court. Benjamin F. Shively of South
Bend, former congressman from the
thirteenth Indiana district, was perma
nent chairman. Referring to W. J.
Bryan he said:
“That which is today eulogized and
approved as broad statesmanship and
patriotism in Theodore Roosevelt, was
a tew years ago denounced as reac
tionary, revolutionary and unpatriotic
in William Jennings Bryan. The af
tersight of the one is almost equal
to the foresight of the other.”
The resolutions committee report
was read by Samuel I. Ralston, and
among other tilings it said: “The dem
ocracy of Indiana, in convention as
sembled, sends greetings across the
sea to that wise and conservative
statesman, unaltering patriot and su
perb leader, William Jennings Bryan,
and pledges its vote in convention and
the electoral vote of Indiana to him
for president in 1908.
“For nearly ten years the republi
can party has been in absolute con
trol in all departments in the na
tional government, with power to
change unjust conditions and to rec
tify evils. Yet, during that time co
lossal combinations of capital have
dominated the people and have sti
fled competition and unfairly limited
the opportunity of the individual cit
izen. Wealth thereby illegally ob
tained has been unsparingly used to
control, legislation and corrupt elec
tions. No honest effort has been
made or is being made by republican
y “l©gislaljon to cure or eradicate these
evils. W£ denounce th h.ypoc,rUy of
the republican party which, while pre
tending to legislate against these con
ditions, deals only with the symptoms
and not with the disease. The unfair,
tyrannical features of the so-called
‘protective tariff’ have made these
things possible, and no permanent re
lief can be secured until its obnoxious
features are removed. We demand that
this be done by a tariff for revenue
The following were nominated: Sec
retary of state, James F. Cox, Colum
bus; auditor, Marian Baiely, Lizton;
treasurer, John Isenbarger, North
manchester; attorney general, Walter
J. Lotz, Muncie.
Editor Watterson in Line.
In Friday’s Courier-Journal (Louis
ville, Ky.), under the coption ‘‘Hur
rah for Bryan,” Henry Watterson
domes out flatfoctedly for the Nebras
ka statesman as the democratic nom
inee for president, and predicts Ills
nomination by states before the meet
ing of the convention. He says that
Cleveland and all sound-money demo
crats will support him.
FUNERAL OF SENATOR GORVHN.
Services in Washington Were Simple in
Accordance With His Wishes.
With simplicity and complete ab
sence of ostentation, the funeral ser
vices of the late Senator Arthur P.
Gorman of Maryland took place in
Washington Thursday from his late
Before the services began many
prominent men and nearly all of Sen
ator Gorman’s closest political asso
ciates in Maryland, as well as col
leagues from the senate and house,
in addition to members of congres
sional committees, were afforded an
opportunity to view the body. The
body was placed in a vault in Oak
Hill cemetery, temporarily.
ARKANSAS DEMOCRATS WRANGLE.
Convention Only Able to Effect Temporary
Organization First Day.
The Arkansas democratic state con
vention convened in Hot Springs on
Tuesday at 10:30 o’clock, and after a
stormy session, effected only a tem
porary organization, with Judge J. W.
Evans of Booneville, chairman, and
Hugh Corry of Texarkana, secretary.
For two hours during the afternoon,
while plans were on foot for the tem
porary organization, pandemcnium
reigned, and the presiding officer lost
entire control of the convention.
Suffered. Two Years—Relieved in Three
MR. C. B. FI/iER, Mt. Sterling, Ky„
“J have suffered with kidney and
bladder trouble for ten years past.
“Last March 1 commenced using Peruna
and continued for three months. 1 have
j not used it since, nor have i felt a pain.
“I believe that 1 am well and l there
fore give my highest commendation to
the curative powers of Peruna.’'
Pe-ru-na For Kidney Trouble.
Mrs. Geo. 11. Ssimser, Grant, Ontario,
“I bad not Seen well for about four
years. 1 had kidney trouble, and, in
/act, felt badly nearly all Ihe time.
“This summer i got so very bad l
thought 1 would try Peruna, so 1 wrote
to you and began at once to take Peruna
“I took only two bottles of Peruna and
one of Manalin, and now 1 feel better than
i have for some time.
“I feel that Peruna and Manalin cured
me and made a different woman of me al
together. 1 bless the day 1 picked up the
little book and read of your Peruna.''
It is the business of the kidneys to
remove from the blood all poisonous
materials. They must be active all the
•time, else the system suffers. There are
times when they need a little assistance.
Peruna is exactly this sort of a remedy.
It has saved many people from disaster by
rendering the kidneys service at a time
when they were not able to bear their own
An Honest Man.
Cassius R. Peck, assistant United
States district attorney of Oklahoma,
at a banquet in Guthrie recently spoke
on honesty. One thing he said was
“What are we coming to? Are we
coming to such a pass that our ideas of
an honest man will correspond with the
idea of old Hiram Stroode?
“Hiram Stroode, for the seventh
time, was about to fail. He called in an
expert accountant to disentangle his
books. The accountant, after two days’
work, announced to Hiram that he
would be able to pay his creditors four
cents on the dollar.
“At this news the old man looked
“ ‘Heretofore,’ he said, frowning, ‘I
have always paid ten cents on the dol
“A virtuous and benevolent expres
sion spread over his face.
“ ‘And I will do so now,’ he resumed.
‘I will make up the difference out of my
own pocket.’ ”
Chorus Girls Ways.
The stage and its environments as
a factor upon the morals and deport
ment of the girls who compose the
chorus has been argued pro and con
for ages, but no solution is fully ac
Many persons depict the life of the
chorus girl as one of danger, studded
with innumerable pitfalls. An equal
number of opinions uphold stage life
by saying there are good and bad
people in every employment, and that
stage girls are usually deserving of
greater consideration than is accord
One thing in which nearly all chor
us girls are alike is indifference to
their word. These girls care little for
their promises. To the average chor
us girl a signed contract is like a
piece of waste paper, unless she real
ly wants the engagement. In that
case she will hold on to the contract
like grim death.
Managers are busy men, but they
have been known to resort to law to
compel the heedless young lady to
respect the paper she has signed.—

You Look Prematurely Old
Labor in Old Times,
Twelve hours in winter and 14 in sum
mer was a fair average day’s work. But
in Lyons in 1571 the printers worked
from two o’clock in the morning till
eight or nine in the evening. In
other trades the working hours were
often from four in the morning till
nine at night or from live to ten.
Workers in the same metier generally
lived together in the same street.
But the maitre-artisan had his own
maison. The ground floor was his
shop or workshop: above was his bed
room, which was also the sitting and
eating room; a small room adjoining
accommodated his children, and above
was a garret where various commodi
ties were stored.—Work and Workers.

secured some, and after using it several
months I was completely cured. I can
highly recommend Cuticura Soap as be

Beaver in New York State.
Although since 1870 the beaver ha.
continuously hovered on the point o
extinction in the Empire state, then
has never been a time when the Norti.
woods did not contain at least cm
wild colony. I have in my possession
fresh beaver cuttings which were ob
tained within the past five years from
two different localities in Franklin
county, and at present there is In this
county, in the waters northwest of Up

perhaps two distinct families —which
are undoubtedly the direct descendants
of the original wild stock. —From
