What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

At any rate, Mr. Pulitzer’s St. Louis mewspaper stands up against the Salis-~ bury claim. ; Just like John Bull to get mad and depreéciece his own holdings in Ameri- can securities. According to the English idea we haven’t enough canines of war to put up a respectable dog show. It should be set down as one point to Lord Dunraven’s credit that he does not avail himself of the opportunity tc talk, Does. the new woman take any differ- ent view of her sphere now that there is a war cloud banking up on the hori- zon? If the people of Crete make another aggressive move or two Turkey will seon have a full fledged revolution on her hands. Zella Nicolaus is said to be looking for work, and the public is naturally curious to.know what she with it if she finds it. The best thing for those American heiresses who have married Englisa husbands to do is to refrain from all political discussions. “What has become of the old-fash- ioned rail fence?” inquires the Atehi- son Globe. Perhaps you are printing your paper on it, brother. In the midst of the war scare jocular Englishmen venture the timely remark that Americans are not their brothers, but only their brothers-in-law. It would gratify the Apostle Paul very much to know that the majority of the Methodist bishops indorse his position concerning women preaching in churches. America is doing more to protect her own citizens in Turkey than are the powers pledged to secure tke safety of all ta the empire to protect their re- spective people. The Russian government has conclud- ed that tea can be profitably raised in the imperial dominions, and has select- ed a tract of crown land, 150,000 acres {n extent, on which to start the enter- prise. Sophia Fuchs, of Chicago, says that her husband beat her with a dead pat rot. We believe that this is the first instance in which a parrot has proved a disturbing element in a family—after deais. t Rudyard Kipling long ago anticipat ed Gen. Miles’ discoveries as to our sea coast defenses.. He declared, it will be remembered, that along the Atlantic seaboard Uncle Sam was “temptingly spankable.” Another co-operative colony has been formed. The great trouble hereto fore has been that some membérs of such colonies have been co-operative, some have been operative and some have been inoperative. The Chicago bride who objected to a $3 fee for the justice on the ground that it was extravagant may have been right. Some husbands are not worth $3, while occasionally one is found that would be cheap at that price, There are now forty-four states in | And there are those who | the Union. are already figuring out how many there will be when the Canadian prov- inces are admitted. But it is safe not to count the chickens too soon. In order to prevent the useless effu- sion of blood the papers of Denver have warned Barney Barnato that # will not be safe, in the present excited state of | public feeling, for him to go to Cripple | Creek wearing that smoking jacket.

He kept all the time just ahead of the pilot and seemed to be anxic™: to go faster and get through. Eve'yvody else wanted to see everything, but this man would have liked to skip some of the things; still he couldn’t say anything, for the pilc: made good time right along un- til he came to the figure of a big man on a big horse, both in heavy armor and the man holding a great spear, a most impressive figure, representing I forget now who, but somebody famous in history, and the beefeater talked a little longer than usual. Here the man who wasina hurrv broke in. ‘Yes, yes,’ he said: ‘that’s all right, but we can’t stand here all day looking at that, you know,’ and he moved ahead a little and waited all ready to goon. all hoped that the beefeater would pay no attention to him; we need have no fearon that score, for he paid absolutely no attention whatever to him. An hour or two later we stood at the gate and bade the beefeater good-by. The impatient man and I walked away together. He wasn’t |means. He was from Boston. He said he was a busy man and had very little time to spare; he was going back in the steamer he came over in, and, us he had only four days todo Europe in, he had really felt as though he ought not tospend halfa day in the tower.” The Pace Thit Kills, Fast Work and Fast Eating Make Three Score Years and Ten a Ripe Old Age in These Days (From the Cincinnati! Enquirer.) The American people live too fast, eat too fast and drink too fast, brought upon many of-us a train of nervous and stomach disorders that are very diffi- cult t6 manage. Investigation and chemical help those suffering from such ills has re- sulted in the discovery of Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills for Pale People, which has taken very high rank as a specific remedy. H. P. Owens, a traveling mao thirty years of age, who is well known in this community and generally liked because he | | is a bright, energetic young fellow, resides | with his mother at 885 Central Avenue, | Cincinnati, Ohio. He has been & victim of dyspepsia which took the form of continu | ous constipation, and, strangely. enough, | his mother suffered from the same trouble. | Mr. Owens testified to the merits of Pink Pills in a most enthusiastic way, and said | to the Enquirer reporter: Williams’ Pink Pills, because they did me great good, and other people ought to know of their virtues asa medicine in stomach | troubles... It was some time ago when | felt a heavy feeling in my stomach, and I grew very constipated, 1 did not consult a doctor, but having heard of the Pink Pills I bought a box of them. In two or three days the heavy feeling in my stomach dis- appeared and my bowels were regular. I did not use more than » box of them before I was well. Since that time I have only occasionally been troubled with constipation, and 1 never get worried, be- cause I know just what to do. Mother was also troubled with indigestion and the Pink Pills did the same for her they did for me—cured her, didn’t they, mother.’ When appealed to Mrs. Owens answered ; “That is right. I found it was a great medicine, so easy to take and so quick and lasting in its results.” Mr. Owens continued: “I believe that these pills are also good for nervousness. When I had my stomach trouble I was also quite nervous and that disappeared with the dyspepes. The Pink Pills were all that is claimed for them. You can make any use of this testimonial you see fit.” H. P. Owens has occupied several posi- | tions of trust in this city. He was fora time an employe of the Commercial-Gazette. | He will go on the road in a’ few days for a | prominent business house here.

ISAAC BASSETT, THE LATE DOORKEEPER OF THE UNITED STATES SENATE. — Had Been in the Service of the Govern- ment Continually Since 1830--Made a Page by Daniel Webster in that Year, APT, ISAAC BAS- sett, whose death was fecorded in Washington t he other day, was for more than three score years con- nected with the United States sen- ate. He obtained his military title during the war, when he was chosen commanding of- | ficer cf a company of home guards or- ganized at the capitol, His first-lieu- | tenant was Arthur Pue Gorman, at | present the senior senator from Mary- | land, and who has been connected with | the senate ever since he started as a | page, like Capt. Bassett. It was in 1831 that Capt. Bassett first attracted the attention of Daniel Web- ster, who took a great fancy to th® lad. At that time the elder Bassett was one | of the doorkeepers of the senate and | littl Isaac used to come to the build- | ing with Ris father. There was only one page in the United States senate thase days—6. P. Hanscom, who afterwards became one of the editors of the National Republic- | guished Americans, among whom may be included Jeff Davis. Nobody was} ever able to learn from Capt. Bassett od the head of the southern con- ‘ederacy sat when he was United States senator from Mississippi,although many attempts have been made. by those who wanted the Jeff Davis chair and desk. Persons who yisited the senate cham- ber as spectators always noticed the pleasant-visaged old gentleman with white hair and beard, the former curled carefully in a roll, who sat usually at the left of the presiding officer of the senate. Whenever a message was re- ceived from the President of the United States or from the house of repre- sentatives it was the duty of Capt. Bas- sett to announce the fact to the senate, Although in the performanc®é of this duty for years, whenever he was com- pelled to make the customary an- nouncement Capt.. Bassett invariably made as much fuss over it as though it was his first offense. His face would turn scarlet, and as he ducked his head at the presiding officer there was a quiver in his voice as he spoke the stereotyped formula. This was gener- ally accompanied by a hesitan of speech, as if uncertain whether his re- marks would fall upen appreciative and listening ears. No matter how hot the‘day might be Capt. Bassett never appeared in the senate chamber unless he was dressed with scrupulous neatness and care in a suit of black broadcloth, Even his necktie was of the same som- ber hue, with just a glimpse of white shirt and collar visible above the closely buttoned double-breasted frock coat. CAPT. ISAAC BASSETT. an, published. here until its absorp- tion into the Washington Post. Hanscom was principally occupied Despite the fact that he had been as- sociated with senators the greater part of his life Capt. Bassett has never been on the democratic side of the senate | accused of presumption, but was always and it occurred to Webster one day that the whigs were being discriminated against in the matter of a* page. Ac- cordingly he made a fight for the ap- pointment of Isaac Bassett, then about 12 years old. After considerable op- position the additional page was or- dered. This marked the only stormy passage in the official career of Capt. | Bassett. Since the ’30s his lines have been cast in pleasant places among dignitaries who have seemed tireless in | their efforts to do him honor. When he had completed his fiftieth year in their service a magnificent silver salver was prepared and presented to, him. This he prized the most of all his earth- ly possessions. At~ another time a magnificent gold snuff box was pre- sented him because of his efforts in behalf of the sniiff-takers of the senate. This recalls the fact that Capt. Bassett’s principal duty during the latter days of the nineteenth century came through his custodianship of the two black snuff | boxes in the recesses at the right and left of the presiding officer of the sen- ate. It is one of the traditions of the senate that these boxes were estab- lished because of the persistency with which senators used to borrow. snuff from one of the early Vice-Presidents of the United States. Finally patience ceased to be a virtue, and calling Capt. Bassett to his aia the presiding officer directed that boxes of snuff be main- tained at the public expense for the use of senators who like to take a little up their noses to make them feel easy. Capt. Bassett was for years the only snuff-taker left, but about $3 is annual- ly invested in this tickling article so that a supply is always on hand in case it is demanded, Capt. Bassett was never known to divulge..a. secret of tae executive ses- sions, which he always attended. He was more like a Sphinx than anybody around the capitol. and. when he passed away many secrets died with him. Particularly is this true of the location in the senate chamber of chairs and desks formerly occupied by distin- * theanor. Ever since he has been about and was apparently deaf, dumb and blind to all that took place about him. Although often importuned to write a volume embodying his recollections, it was the invariable reply of the good old man that such a project must await his conventence, when he could spare time away from the capitol.

St. Louis, Mo., (Special)-—Col, Wm. A. Kirchhoff, general western manager of the American Tobacco Co., has startled his numerous friends by stop- ping the use of tobacco. For years he ad smoked twenty strong cigars daily, and a less quantity would leave him nervous and ill, The habit was under- mining his health, and he tried to quit, but could not, until he took No-To- Bac, the medical miracle that has cured s0 many thousands of tobacco-users, Col. Kirchhoff’s craving for tobacco has entirely gone, and he feels better than ever before. He is a great No-To-Bac enthusiast now.
