There is little doubt, It . seems, that
there will be a senatorial primary this
year to settle the 'question as to who
shall be the Democratic nominee for
U, 8. Senator; The people have had a
taste of the primary system, which puts
them so close to the choosing of a sena
tor, and they will hardly desire to re
turn to the old method of election by
the . legislature. The primary plan
arouses interest, to a vast degree. It
brings out the voir.. Every candidate
- spurs on the voters to loin out- It Is
therefore, declared to be ' the the best
possible plan for the Democratic, party,
. by people of very sound Judgment.
, v j The Democrats will of course work
: : very hard this year not only to get their
voters registered and poll-lax-paid, but
also to get them on the permanent rolls,
under tbe new constitutional amend
. raent. - It is to be a , very heavy year.
There Is hard work ahead and plenty
of It. - '

President Roosevelt on matters connect

Cuban control, le't for his New York
home, , where he will remain 1 until the
last Of April, when he will leave for
Cuba. General Palma, before leaving,
said he was assured the future of Cuban
will be a grand one. '
"I will cuter upon my duties as Presi

'confident lu tbe belief that there Is a
plendld future In store for the island.

tribute to the United States Govern

ed Its generosity and patriotism and by
the shedding of its own blood bas help

it with Spain. Some countries would
have sought some pretext for selfish

"I have been troubled with catarrh In

Abraham Ziegler, Piedmont, Wayne
County, Mo., writes :
" My wife who is now 'eighty-seven
years old, suffered for about sixteen
years from severe catarrh of the head,
which affected her sight and hearing.
I saw Pe-ru-na advertised in your al
manac, and testimonials similar to her
case attracted my attention. I got one
bottle and it helped her so much that
she is now using the second bottle and
she thinks it 1b something wonderful.
Her hearing and sight are both in part
restored." Abraham Ziegler.
In old age the mucous membranes be
come thickened and partly lose their
function. This leads to partial loss of
hearing, smell and taste, as well as di
gestive disturbances. Pe-ru-na corrects
all this by its specific- operation on all
the mucous membranes of the body.
One bottle will convince anyone. Once
used and Pe-ru-na becomes a life-long
stand-by with old and young.
