This is the greatest of all the great historical stories Mr.
Parrish has given to American readers. It is a swift,
intense, adventurous romance, with some mystery, as much
action as is possible to crowd into one story, plenty of
realism of what may be termed the romantic variety, and
a glow which will enlist your sympathies as well as your
On as black a night as any daring soldier could ask, a
cavalry captain rode out from the Army of Northern Vir-
ginia to carry certain dispatches from General Lee through
the Union Lines. The officer is Captain Philip Wayne,
and a gallant Virginian in every sense of the word. He
is at once plunged from one dangerous adventure into
another, and the dashing style in which he describes them
will keep you enthusiastic and fairly breathless in your
effort to keep up.

Single Line of the Story and We
Strongly Advise You to

ara's claimed they were innocent, the
socialist press took it up and the tight
was on; Shoaf being the best man the
Appeal had for this kind of work he
was called in from Leavenworth and
immediately assigned to the case.
He has been sending in some verv
damaging reports of the situation
since arriving there and in a personal
letter written to one of the Appeal
editors he stated that he had positive
proof as to who the guilty parties
were and would send it in in a few
days. This he never did as that is
the last ever heard from him and the
only clue the polict found to work on
was Shoaf's hat and a piece of loaded
pipe found in his room. The general
belief is that he was murdered but it
has been reported that he was kid-
naped and taken to old Mexico,
however no one knows what did be-
come of him, and his father who is
now working on the case reports that
even the hat and piece of loaded pipe
are missing which gives the whole
deal a sinister aspect and makes it
appear like the police and detectives
are in on it. If Shoaf doesn't show
up alive and well real soon we proph-
ecy that the Appeal to Reason will
make mighty interesting reading for
arrogant, cherishes honor, and sym-
pathises with the humble. Destructive
only of despotism, it is the sole con-
servitor of liberty, labor, and prop-
erty. It is the sentiment of freedom,
equal rights, and equal obligations.
The stupid, the selfish, and the base
in spirit may denounce it as a vulgar
thing, in the history of our race the
democratic spirit has developed and
illustrated the highest moral and in-
tellectual attributes of our nature.

Raymond K. Knight has had the
can tied to him as editor of the Ston-
ington (Colo.) Journal. He put out a
good paper but threw the fear of God
into the hearts of the -'court house
bunch" at Springfield a little too
strong and we believe was uncereraon-
iouely kicked out, as he never said a
word in the paper what was coming
nor never wrote a fare-ye-well. The
Journal, we might add, is owned by a
stock company and they have hired a
lady as editor.

The Disappearance of Shoaf
Hell will soon break loose on the
Pacific coast, especially that district
around Los Angeles, California.
Geo. H. Shoaf, sleuth writer of the
Apoeal to Reason is missing an d we
understand he has not been seen
since high twelve yesterday. He was
sent there a few weeks ago to investi-
gate and write up the explosion of
the Los Angeles Times building and
was known to have in his possession
at the time of his disappearance suf-
ficient evidence to convict several
men of the deed which destroyed the
Times building and sent twenty men
to the New Jerusalem. For the bene-
fit of our readers who are not ac-
quainted with the life of Shoaf we
will give a brief summary:
George H. Shoaf was raised in San
Antonio, Texas, where his father was
chief of police far 14 years and is at
present the head of a private detec-
tive agency;the younger Shoaf was
for a while a reporter on one of the
San Antonio papers but being fired
with a strong ambition and a leaning
toward labor unions he soon quit that
and went to Chicago where he pub-
lished the Union Record, later selling
out, and having inherited a detec-
tive's instinct, accented a position as
staff correspondent for the Appeal to
Reason which frequently led him into
dangerous places. Among his no-
table achievments are the Moyer-
Hay wood-Petti bone case of Idaho,
the Molly Maguires of Pennsylvania:

Bailey Sees the Handwriting
Senator Bailey arrived at his home
in Gainsville, Texas, Wednesday and
immediately announced that he would
not be a candidate for reelection to
the Senate. Evidently Bailey sees
that Texas is forming an opinion that
has been shared all over the country
for some time, viz: that he was un-
worthy to represent the great state of
Texas in tbe Senate. Copcerning his
decision on this matter he made the
"You can say for me that I will not
be a candidate for re-elect.ion to the
senate next year: and you can also
say that this decision is irrevocable
I know that the state can not find a
successor who will be more faithful to
the honor and the welfare of her peo-
ple than I have been: but I sincerely
hope that she will find one who can
represent her in the senate with
greater ability than I have done."
Senator Bailey's ability is recog-
nized nationally, as well as his con-
ceipt. His service of the Standard
Oil, and the big interests, is no less
conspicuous. The passing of Bailey
should be an example to all ambitious
young men who whuld rise to promi-
nence in America. A few years ago
he was the recognized leader of the
younger set of Democrats, and his
star was decidedly in the ascendency,
but the glitter of gold and soft glove
of wealth inveigled him from the
road of democracy toward a life of
ease and luxury, and he followed af-
ter, and not a far off.
Bailey went to congress a poor
man; but today after spending more
money for expenses than his salary
he returns with property estimated
worth a million dollars.—Okla. City
And the rag chewing contest about
the state board of agriculture goes
merrily on. This paper is not con-
doning any wrong they might have
done or trying to defend them if
guilty but to use Brewer's own words,

charged by the newspapers there's a

plaint from any of our citizens to the

The Call of The Brute
Vice Admiral yon Ahlefeld, a retir-

written an article on "World Peace
which concludes as follows:
"According to natural laws only
the weaker and inferior will and must
go down. That this is so is salutary
from the point of view of the perfection
of the human race, and who the weak-
er is can be determined only by war,
never by a court of arbitration. Peo-

The readers of this paper will be pleased to
learn that there is at least one dreaded dis-
ease that science has been able to cure in all
its stages, and that is Catarrh. Hall's ca-
tarrh Cure is the only positive cure now
known to the medical fraternity. Catarrh
beintt a constitutional disease, requires a con-
stitutional treatment. Hail's Catarrh Cure is
taken internally, acting directly upon the
blood and mucous surfaces of the system,
thereby destroying the foundation of the
disease, and giving the patient strength by
building up the constitution and assisting na-
ture in doing its work. The proprietors have
