A CnANGEOf SEWTIBLBNT,
The mutiicipai electiohVinthe West
ern States'last Toesilay are somewhat
remarkable, not only in the number of
places carried by the Democrats, and
the large majorities, in some instances,
but in the fact lhat samef these tpwns
have never before been carried by the
Democrats. . This means tbat there has
': been a'great change in popular senti
ment in those States, or that there is an
astonishing amount of apathy among
the Republicans out there. Perhaps it
is both. If si m ply tbe latter there must
be a cause for it. We know t no rea
son, from ordinary causes, that would
create such a rtmarkable apathy at this
time, nor any why Republicans should
be any more indifferent this year about
carrying their city elections. There
must be some influence at woik which
haa nnt heretofore been exerted. It is
true in some localities there were local
reasons which made themselves, felt the
liquor question being prominent in Cin
cinnati and other cities in Ohio, and al
so in Michigan. The recent legislation
in the Ohio legislature on licensing
Baloons arrayed a very large portion
of the German element which had here
tofore been voting the Republican tick
et, against tbat party, nd perhaps the
nam a ftiflmpiit made itself felt in the
Iowa towns where a constitutional pro
hibitory amendment is under discus
sion, and is very distasteful to the Ger
mans who chafe at the idea of being
prohibited from indulgence in their
favorite l.iger. In these instances we
see a cause of a local nature but in oth
er places none to'account for the gain
of the Democrats nor for the apathy of
the Republicans. We see no way to ac
count for thi3 apathy, than in the dis
gust engendered among a large number
of Republicans at the warring of the fac
tions, and dissatisfaction with the man
agement of the party under its present
leaders. Stalwartism, half-breedism
star-routeism, and the stalwart effort to
bespatter the memory of Garfield are
shaking up the concern considerably
and making its tenure of prolonged life
very uncertain. The attitude of sjme
of the party leaders, too, on the Chinese
question, and on the tariff, has no doub
had its influence.
That there has been a great change
in the relative condition of the parties
in the West is evident, but whether it
is to continue or be merely temporary
it is rather early yet to venture an opin
ion. As a rule these spring elections
are not a safe guidance by which to es
timate popular opinion, but the elec
tions of the present week present indi
cations of changes that look as if there
might be a turn in the tide.
The time was not far in the past when
the west wa3 governed and led politi
cally by eastern leaders and eastern
ideas, but the West is becoming an em
pire herself, with her own leaders and
her own ideas and interests not in com
mon with the east, and there is being
manifested in that section an independ
ence of political thought that did not
in former years prevail. The fact is
the leadership of both parties has to a
great extent passed from the east to the
west, and that fact is beginning to be
recognized by the masses. As a matter
of fact some of these western States
which have been held by the Republi
cans are really Democratic and have
been carried by the Republicans only
by the lavish use of money and the
grossest frauds. It is an acknowledged
fact that the sum of $350,000 was sent
into Indiana to influence the election
in that State yust previous to the last
Presidential election, and that enor-.
mous sums of mouey have always been
furnished to carry on the campaigns
and influence the elections in that State
and in Ohio because they were regard
ed as doubtful States, and to carry
them was essential to national success.
Whether in view of the changes now
occurring and the dissensions' existing
between the rival factions this eastern
influence and eastern money will be as
potent as they have besn in the past re
mains to be seen. Prom the present
outlook it would seem that they will
TELLER AND CHANDLER.
The President yesterday sent in the
names of Senator Teller, of Colorado,
for Secretary of the Interior in place of
Kirk wood, and W. E. Chandler, as Sec
retary of the Navy, in place of Hunt,
vwho will go to Russia as minister.
This completes the Arthur cabinet by
the displacement of all the Garfield ap
pointments save Lincoln, Secretary of
War, who will remain.
Teller was at once confirmed, as a
matter of Senatorial courtesy, we pre
sume, while Mr. Chandler goes over to
the committee to pass through the In
vestigating mill, from which he will
probably come out recommended, and
accordingly confirmed. Chandler is not
unknown to fame, for it was he who
stepped to the front when it was dis
covered that Tilden had carried a ma
jority of the electoral votes and tele
graphed through the country that
Hayes was elected. He took the man
agement of the game into his own
hands and laid the foundation for that
colossal swindle which left Tilden out
in the cold and sent Hayes into the

A HUMAN BAROMETER.
The Real Relation Between the Unman
Body and the Weather Scientific
Oae of the most valuable developments of mod
ern science along the line of human necessity Is
the National Weather Bureau at Washington. Ex
perience has shown that eighty-six per cent of
the predictions Of the signal service are accurate;
and these predictions are unquestionably of the
greatest advantage to the seaman, the agriculturist
ana tne enure commercial world. The service
has proven.ils necessity by its usefulness, for In
past, amea ute laciuties lor roretelllng atmos
pheric changes were meagre indeed. The only ju
dications our fathers had of coming changes in the
weatner were aching limos, twinging joints or
painful corns. These "indications, 'T though
crude, were usually correct, and hence naturally
suggest tne enquiry as to tne relation between tbe
human system And the weather. The body is un
questionably an excellent barometer. It foretells
changes in the atmosphere long before they occur.
and this fact has been taken advantage of by phy-
klclans who, when all other agencies ran, prescribe
a change of air, thus hoping the body may find an
atmospheric condition better suited to its needs.
And yet the real relation between the human body
and the weather has never been fully understood,
nor has there ever been, until now, a correct ex
planation or wbat rneumailra (wLiuti seems in
league with tbe atmosunere) iealiy U. it was
originally thought by many to be a trouble in the
3lnts, and as such was treated In the most strange,
nut to say, r.aicu ous manner, xms tneory be
came dispelled when the same trouble attacked
the inusclfcs, and the feeling then prevai.e i that
it was purely a muscular d.sorder. But this idea
was touud to be too narrow, and now it la univer
sally conceded tbat rheumatl-m is a blot d dis
ease. And what a terrible disease it is. It often
comes without warning and prostrate the system
L with agony. Again Its beginning is gradual, and
its erowtn siow. in iw aoute ioim it maniiests it-
selt lu every conceivable shape and always ac
companied by Intense pain. At one time It Is in
flammatory, at another neuralgic Sometimes It
assumes the form of gout, and again that of pleu
risy or lumbago: but in whatever manner it ap
pears It Is terribly painful and always to be dread
ed. The pain and annoyance of rheumatism are
Increased by Its great uansrer for it U liable to at
tack the brain or heart ai any moment, thereby
causing Instant death. Indeed, nearly every case
ot heart disease with an lis dreadful suddenness
which has ever occoned, can be traced more or
less olrectly to rheumatic Qausca. In its cbronlc
form it stiffens the loluts. contracts the muscles.
undermines the health and ruins the life. It fre
quently attacKs men and women who are appar
ently in periect neaitn. indeed, it is i s greatly to
be dreaded as any tosslble form of physical woe.
But, however severe its effects may be. the exact
cause ot this blooa trouble has ben au undecided
question, and It is only within the past year that
any decision upon the subject has been reached.
In order to tuny determine wbat tbe cause of rheu
matic dlsordeis really was, certain authorities sent
letters oi inquiry irom wasnirgton to tne leading
practicing physicians of the land, and these in
auirle8were responded to Quite generally, thus
furnishing data of great value to science and man
kind. The view held by the doctors are of a
varied nature, but so overwhelming a portion hold
to one belief as to leave but little doubt that it is
thi correct one. This belief, briefly stated, is that
uric add in the blood causes rheumatism, and
that it is only by removing this poisonous acid
that rheumatic or neuralgic troubles in all their
terrible forms can be cured. This being true, the
Important question arises: ' Bow does this pois
onous uric acid get into tbe blood, and how can it
best be removed?" Uric acid is a waste material
of the body which the kidneys should carry out,
but because they are weakened they cannot throw
it irom tne system, uestore tne Kidneys and you
restore the power that will force the uric acid
from the system and thus banish the rheumatic
agonies which it causes. This is reason: it is
science. No one whose kidneys are in a perfect
condition was ever troubled witn rneumausm, and
no rneumatie sunerer. nowever slight the Dam
maybe, has perfect kidneys. The conclusion of
this truth is inevltaele; perfect kidneys mean free
dom from rheumatism.
When rheumatism has manifested Itself In any
special part of tbe body, attempts have usually
been made to treat that part of tne body. Asa re
sult, the pain has departed but the disease has re
mained, lying subtly concealed and ready to break
out at some unexpected moment. Checking the
pain in any single locality only scatters the disease
through the system, wnen, u tne seat or the dis
order, which are the kidneys, were reached, a com
plete core would be the result. The way therefore
to expel this rank and poisonous acid before it as
sumes an inflammatory or cnromc iorm is by
keeping the kidneys In absolute health. This is
no easy thing to do. tod no means has. until with
In the past few years, been known which would
successfully reach and anect tnese great oreans.
At last, however, scientists have discovered (hat
the leaves of a tropical plant, previously but little
known to science and unknown to medicine, pos
sessed marvelous Qualities adapted for the kid
neys. These leaves have been skilfully combined
in toe remedy now Known as Warners safe -Kid
ney and Liver Cure. It is, up to tbe present time.
the only known preparation that acts so directly
upon the kidneys as to effectually cure the various
dangerous forms of kidney disease, and hence re
move ail nno mm. irom me Diooa. as a result, tne
cores it has been the means of performing are
really very remarkable. Indeed, there are thous'
ands of persons in America to-day who owe their
restoration to health and entire freedom from
rheumatism to this simple yet powerful remedy,
which is known universally, manufactured in
Rochester, N. Y , and sold In every drag store in

The theory of the doctors as above exnlatnAd
finds its confirmation In the fact that when the
kidneys nave been cured, rheumatism is complete
ly removed. . This is not. of course, always accom-
pusnea instantly, ior in a disease so subtle, the
cure is often very slow, but under no other plan
can anv hone of nermanent relief ever ha found.
There are hundreds of cases on record- dmins the
