No man can be relied upon who
hasn't the courage to express his
convictions, and the rule can be ap
plied in all spheres of life without
fear of contradiction.
Mr. Foraker, who assumes to be
close to Major McKinley, says the
candidate for the Presidency from
Ohio is for bimetallism, and yet
when McKinley himself is questioned
on the subject he gives the same old j
answer, "I have nothing to say." I
If it is a fact that he is in favor of !

bimetallism, lor free silver, or the sin-1
gle gold standard, why does he not 1
meet the issue like a man and say so?
The people have a right to know
where he stands, and if he really has
any convictions on the subject the
country insists that he make them
known. Ol course no one believes
that he is absolutely without opinions
in the maF.er, and it is because of
this belief that the country has begun
to feel that he cannot be relied upon.
What a sad commentary it is to be
sure that such a man is the possible
nominee lor the suffrages of the
American people for the highest of
fice within their gilt.

There is only one way to cure Deaf

remedies. Deafness is caused by an
intlamed condition of the mucous lining
of the Eustachian Tube. When this
tube gets intlamed you have a rumbling
sound or imperfect hearing, and when
it is entirely closed Deafness is the re
sult, and unless- the inflammation can
be taken out and this tube restored to
its normal condition, hearing will be
destroyed forever; nine cases out of

nothing but an inilanied condition of

A Gift to tli- rniversity
Mrs. Frederick Baker, of New
York has given $3,000 to equip
Commons Hall, at the Univer-ity,
and to provide board at cost for stu
dents. The hall will be opened next
September with accommodations for
200, and the charge will be SS per
month, which is hoped will be re
duced to 6 alter a while. There
will be twenty student waiters, who
will get board for their services.
The Mason farm, ol i.coo acres,
located one and one half miles from
the university and recently bequeath
ed to it by Rev. and Mrs. . P. Ma
son, will be used as a poultry, dairy,
stock and truck f irm, to supply the
table in Commons Hall.
President Winston says that Com
mons Hall will have Western beet

a thousand times slower and a mil

bound by his official oath to survive
until all the medals, certificates, dip

There are many people who be
lieve it the duty of an editor of a
newspaper to try to punish and ex
pose those who, in their opinion, do
not conduct themselves properly.
When they see the law violated, they
are too cowardly, frequently, to them
selves lodge the complaint before the
proper legal authorities, but at once
rush to the editor, and demand that
he shall become the judge, jury and
executioner to punish misdeeds of
which they complain. Then there are
fellows who, when they have a griev
ance or spite against anybody, try to
use the editor to ventilate their ill
humor and punish their enemy.
What a poor idea they must have
of the editor, when they think he is
anxious and willing to do their dirty
