Tides in the Great Lakes
In theory there must be lunar tides
of the groat lakes, although they may
be too small to be detected in bodies
of water and much more affected by
winds and by differences In barome-
tric pressure. This latter Influence Is
so potent that in Lake Michigan it
sometimes causes disturbances re-
sembling the waves when the surface
of the water is otherwise quite calm.

School Children's Dyspepsia.
The common form of dyspepsia, or
indigestion, which stops the growth,
pales the cheeks, weakens the system
of so many school children, is often
due to improper or too quickly eaten
lunches. While seeing to a correc-
tion of the cause, it la also important
to cure the disordered conditions of
stomach and bowels. This can be
done by no medicine so safely and
surely as Dr. Caldwell's (laxative)
Syiup Pepsin. Try it. Sold by all
druggists at 50c and $1.00 Money
back if it fails.
The floors are so cold in many

GUTHRIE: An appropriation bill
for the establishment of a territorial

ment and equipment of the plant, an.1

its operation. The bill provides for
the issuing of bonds for that amount,
bearing interest at not over 4 per cenl
and payable in ten years or five years
at the option of the territory. All of
the money received from the sale of
refined oil is to be turned into the
resolving fund, with the exception of
an amount sufficient to pay the inter-
est and an amount equal to one-tenth
the principal for the purpose of pay-
ing oft the original bond issue.
The bill provides for the establish-
ment of the refinery in Pawnee
county. There is to be a board of
directors of three members, who shall
receive a salary of $5 per day for
their actual services. A warden,
whose salary is to be $2,000 per year,

WILL PROTECT KANSAS
Illinois Legislature Will Loan Kansas
$100,000 Without Interest
SPRINGFIELD, ILL: Representa-
tiev McGorty introduced a resolution
in the house calling for the appoint-
ment of a committee to be appointed
forthwith, from the house and senate
for the purpose of conferring and
communicating with the Kansas leg-
islature as to the scope and extent of
the pipe lines of the Standard Oil
company in order that the legislature
may be enabled to protect the people
of that state and its commercial in-
A resolution declares the present
house to be in hearty accord with the
fight in the Kansas legislature for
McGorty explained when the reso-
lution was introduced that it was not
intended to make any investigation
of the Standard company.
"I merely want an investigation ot
the pipe line which now extends to
Galesburg and Monmouth," he said.
"This pipe lien will later extend to
Indiana. If necessary, the report of
the committee, if appointed,may be
followed by a bill to make tho com-
pany a common carrier and subject tc
the same regulations and penalty.''
The house also adopted a resolution
offering to loan the state of Kansas
the sum of $100,000 without interest
for a period of six years to aid in es-
tablishing the state oil refinery, and
refers to the Standard Oil company
as that 'merciless octopus whose ten-'
acles now encircle every state in the
The resolution was adopted by a
close viva voce vote amid consider-
able confusion and laughter.
To Manage Three
Since the reorganization of the Van-
lerbilt roads east of Chicago, a short
.imo ago, several changes have been
nade in the operating department.
The most Important is the promotion
f Mr. C. F. Daly from the position of
Vsslstant General Passenger Agent of
the Lake Shore, to that of Passenger
Traffic Manager of the Lake Shore,
Michigan Central and Lake Erie and
Western. The General Passenger
Agents of these lines retain their posi-
Mr. Daly came to Chicago three
years ago from the Lake Erie & West-
ern, where he had been General Pas-
;ei:ger Agent. His promotion to so
responsible a position is a deserved
tribute to Mr. Daly's ability as a rail-
road operator. Some further changes
in the Vanderbilt lines are expected in
tho near future but have not yet been
In all the changes so far made no
one has been displaced. The promo-
tions being to newly created offices.
Rat Brings Recruits.
Capt. Samuel Hull, who has a small
cottage at Riverside, has tamed a
large gray rat so that he is as docile
as a kitten, and comes at a call and
eats out of a dish. Recently the rat
appeared with three young ones, who
are becoming as tame as their moth-

Neither Liniments nor Ointment;
Will Reach Rheumatism—How
Mr. Stephenson Was Cured.
People with inflamed and aching
joints, or painful muscles ; people who
shuffle about with the aid of a can a or a
crutch and cry, Oh I at every slight jar,
are constantly asking,"What is the besl
thing for rheumatism ?"
To attempt to cure rheumatism by ex-
terual applications is a foolish waste of
time. The scat of tho disease is in tht)
blood, and while the sufferer is rubbing
lotions and grease on the skin the poison
in tho circulation is increasing.
Delays in adopting a sensible treatment
wo dangerous because rheumatism may,
it any moment reach thehoart anil prove
fatal. The only safo course for rheumatic
sufferers is to get the best possible blood
remedy at once.
Mr. Stephenson 'a experience with this
jbstinato and distressing affliction u
that of hundreds. He says :
"About a year ago I was attacked by
tevere rhoumatio pains in my left
shoulder. The pains were worse iu wet
iveather, and at these periods caused me
;lie greatest suffering. I tried a number
if treatments and ointments, but they
'ailed to alleviate the pains."
Then he realized that the cause must
ae deeper and the paiu only a surface iu-
licatiou. He adds:
" I had heard Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
for Palo People recommended as a cure
'or rheumatism, and when I found th:it
[ was getting no relief from applications,
[ made up my mind that I would try
ihem. Before the first box was gone 1
loticed that the pains were becoming
less frequent, and that they were not so
levere as before. After the second box
lad been used np I Mas entirely free
from discomfort, and I have had uo traces
■f rheumatism since." -
Tho change iu treatment proved by
ilmost immediate results that Mr.
Chomas Stephenson, who lives at No. 115
greenwood street, Springfield, Mass.,
lad found the true means for the purili-
;atiou and enrichment of his blood.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills nre without
loubt the best of all blood remedies.
They effect genuine and lasting cures in
heumatism. They do not merely deaden
lie ache, but they expel the poison from
ho blood. These pills are sold by ali
The Great Seal
The statement made by a certain
listorian that the great seal of the
United States which is used at the
iresent day by tha secretary of state,
>vho affixes it to commissions signed
)y the president, is the second of its
dnd in the possession of the govern-
ment, is not quite correct. There have
aeen three great seals—those of 1782,
1841 and 1885. The eagle of the 1841
seal held only six arrows in his sin-
ister talon, having in some unac-
countable way lost seven of the origi-
nal thirteen. The name of the cutter
if the die is unknown, and the change
in the bird was made without author-
ity. The position of the eagle's talons
>s the reverse of natural. Tiffany cut
the present die and its heraldic and
legal correctness devolved upon
James Horton Whitehouse.
Writing is not literature unless it

A dog lives on the average from
