LAST SESSION Of 62D CONGRESS
No Tariff Legislation to be Attempted
as Committees Are Busy Prepar-
ing Bills For the Spe-
2,1 a m
Owen, Dickenson, Wills,
Washington—The expiring congress
has assembled for Its final work of
legislation. In the brief period re- i
maining before constitutional llmlta- i
tions bring It to an end, the terms
of many of Its members who will re-
enter private life will expire; many
appropriation bills for the support of
the government, must be passed; the
Impeachment of Judge Archbald of
the commerce court must be tried In
the senate; many investigating com-
mittees must conclude inquiries and
make their reports, und scores of leg-
islative matters must be disposed of.
Throughout the session, attracting
as much attention as the actual work
of legislation, will run the prepara-
tory work for the extra session to be
called Boon after President elect Wil-
son takes office, March 4. Committees,
pursuant to this, will thrash out ques-
tions of tariff, currency and anti-trust
legislation, aiming to have democratic
policies shaped and democratic plans
nmde, before the new administration
comes Into power.
No Tariff Legislation
It Is assured that there will be no
tariff legislation this winter. Neither
Is it expected that the currency or
anti trust problems will receive mucti
attention In the house or senate, the
principal work of the session belnt;
confined to preparation for the demo-
cratic administration and the enact-
ment of some of the more important
bills pending on the calendars of the
Important bills to receive attention
Include the bill for a department of
labor; the Sheppard-Kenyon bill, pre-
venting shipments of liquor Into "dry"
states; the Page bill, to give federal
aid to vocational and agricultural
schools and the resolution for a con-
stitutional amendment limiting the
president to a single term of six years.
These measures have all been de-
bated before both houses and have
reached the point whre action of
some kind upon them is expected.
Members have been slow in reach-
ing Washington and not much interest

tivity. The annual estimates for ap-
propriations are ready and President
Taft'b message was brought in.

ions as to the outcome of the struggle

candidate. Senator Oalllnger, or the
democratic candidate, Senator Bacon,
and these two men have acted alter-
nately as presiding officer by unani-

sion, Texas, testified that sb agent for

der his will will be left to the Ca.ne-
gte Corporation of New York, which

tional and charitable work. Mr. Car-
negie's statement likewise explains

the Carnegie Corporation.
Servians Occupy Port of Durazzo
London—The Servians, Ignoring the
proclamation of Albanian Independ-
ence, have occupied the port of Duraz-

flict is raised in acute form between
Austria and Servia aud It remains to
be seen whether the Austrian govern-
ment will take any direct action or
will be content to leave the question
for the after-the-war settlement. The
Servian action, coupled with the emi-
nently warlike feeling prevailing at
Vienna, Is likely to keep Europe in a
state of anxiety.

FRIDAY OFAN APE
How Modern Robinson Crusoe
Finds a Faithful Helper.
KEPT THINGS GOING
8hlpwrecked Sailor of Trsmp 8teamer
Tells of Teaching Animal How to
Box snd Make Hlmsslf Useful on
New York.—"It's gospel true, every
word of It, mates." This statement Is
made upon no less authority than the
solemn word of Second Mate Peter
Hayes of the tramp steamer Tuscan,
Just In from the West African trade.
Furthermore, It might be said that
Second Mate Hayes is known as Pious
Peter to such of his fellows as dare
presume to gossip. The yarn reads
like the experience of Robinson
— "We were working the West African
coast down Kongo way," began the
mate. "Things were terrible mono-
tonous and one fine afternoon, as we
lay at anchor, I decided to take the
small boat and do some fishing. I
rigged up a bit of sail and away I
went over the smooth sea until I waB
almost out of sight of the Tuscan. A
hurricane came up suddenly and six
hours later I bumped ashore on the
sandy beach of a tropical island.
"A few days later, when I was scout-
ing for something to eat, I found a
young ape with a broken leg and I
mended it. The apfe and I got to be
best of friends. His leg Improved In
a hurry, and he would follow along
after me when I went food hunting.
And that ape was some he|p, I cap tell
you, for he would climb the trees and
bring down the grub In good shape.
"Well, sir, that certainly was a
bright ape. I taught him how to
throw stones and he got to be Buch
an expert that he could hit birds as
they sat on the trees. He became the
official food provider after that. I al-
ways have been a bit bandy with my
fist, and I thought It would be a good
caper to teach the ape how to box.
He took to sparring in good shape, and
after a few lessons he got so he could
feint, sidestep and punch like a cham-
"Sam—that's what I named the ape
—got to be too blamed good a boxer,
"Fetched My Drinking Water in a
and as he grew bigger It was about
all I could do to hold my own with
"Sam was a great mate. He fetched
me my drinking water In a gourd,
caught birds and picked fruit, and I
Just sat back like a king. At night I
would light a big fire on the beach so
th it would attract some ship, and
It was Sam who got the firewood and
kept things going. I had been on the
island about four months when one
afternoon Sam came rushing up all
excited and talked away for dear life
In the ape language. 1 finally made
out that he had sighted a ship. I
lighted the signal fire and when the
ship came closer I saw It was the
Tuscan. They took both of ub aboard.
"They had given me up for lost and
It was Just by chance that they came
acrosB my Island and saw my smoke.
Sam certainly was the life of the ship.
He was Interested In everything and
got so he could almost do a sailor's
"But poor Sam, he took sick one
night and we gave everything In the
medicine chest, but It did no good.
He Just curled up and died. I felt as
If I had lost the best friend on earth.
I certainly lost the best little two-
handed fighter that ever doubled up
bis fists. We dropped Sam overheard
In a sack weighted down with coal,
and say. mate, I Just cried like s kid."
Meeker, Cola—Perhaps the largest
turnip raised In Colorado this year,
md without irrigation, has Just been
brought In from Josephine basin. It
was grown on the Ford ranch, and It
weighs Just 294 pounds There were
many other turnips In the patck
iwogiiig from 6 to 15 pounds.

AN IDAHO CASE.
L. C. Warner, N. Fairfield Ave., Poca-

confined me to bed for weeks. The pain
I endured when the atones were passing
was indescribable. Doan'a Kidney Pllla

End of a Noted Folly.
The monocle has long since been
out of fashion in England, and is soon
to disappear from Paris, which has
been its last stronghold. It was in-
vented by a Dutch dandy, and Its evil
effects upon the eye were at once
noted by oculists. The monocle first
appeared at the congress of Vienna
In 1814, when it was worn by its in-
ventor. One folly, at least, has had
only about a century of life.
Reason for Inquiry.
The following after-dinner story
waB related by Dr. Henry Churchill
King, president of Oberlin college, be-
fore the Chicago Congregational club
"I was standing out In front It one
of the big exposition buildings at the
St. Louis fair, when a man came out
of the building much the worse for

"I told him the name of the build-
" 'Thanks,' he said. '1 was just In
It and 1 wanted to check it off.' "
A DOCTOR'S SLEEP
Found He Had to Leave Off Coffee.
Many persons do not realize that a
bad stomach will cause inBomnia.
Coffee and tea drinking being such
an ancient and respectable form of
habit, few realize that the drug—caf-
feine—contained in coffee and tea, is
one of the principal causes of dys-
pepsia and nervous troubles.
Without their usual portion of cof-
fee or tea, the caffeine topers are
nervous, Irritable and fretful. That's
the way with a whisky drinker. He

matter if you want to try It, because
Poatum gives a gentle but natural
