PEOPLE OF THE DAY
North Carolina's Governor.
Governor R. B. Glenn of North Caro
lina, whoa* clash with Judge l'rtteh
ard attracted wide attention, holds
that state courts have rights the fed
eral Judiciary should respect.
"Out courts having jurisdiction," says
Governor Glenn, "we contend we
have a right to proceed to final judg
ment and that If aggrieved defend
ants can only appeal through our su
preme court to the Mpreiue court of
the United States. This Is the orderly
aOSSKT BBODIUX (ILXNN.
method the railroads desire to enjoin
us from taking slid to tske all cases
Into the federal court."
The cause of the trouble briefly
•tated la: The Southern railway was
found guilty of violating the North
Carolina law forbidding, under SSOO
penalty, tickets to be sold for more
than 2>4 cents a mile, was flued
980,000, aud two of Its officials were
sent to prison. Theu Federal Judge
Prltchard Immediately released the
officials on habeas corpus and In
veighed against the law as "coulia
calory" on the ground that the. South
ern might have to pay as much as
(2,600,000 In tines.
Governor Glenn Is a native of North
Carolina, a lawyer by profession and
fifty-three years old. For many yeurs
be hns been prominent In |>oltt!cs and
has served the state various capncl
ties. He was a Cleveland elector In
1884 and IBW2. Ife was chosen govern

Hugo Osterbsus, the new captain of

The Hermit Kingdom.
The recent abdication of tbe em
peror of Korea and tbe asceuslon 'of
the crown prince to the throne bale
turned the eyes of tbe world toward"
tbe Hermit Kingdom. Since the close
of the Busso Japanese war the Japa
nese have been absolute masters of
Korea, and tbe recent change of rulers
Is attributed to their Influence..

are tbe reasons given for bis downfall.

Tbe mastic tree gives out a sort of
resinous guui that hardens the gums
aud gives a delicate odor to tbe breath.
Mix a few drops of spirits of cam
phor and tincture of myrrh In a glass
of water and rinse the mouth, using It
also as a gargle when some small lu
dlspoaltlou baa affected the breath. A
small bottle of tluctflhe of myrrh may
be kept ou the stand aud ten drops
used In a little water after the mouth
and teeth are well fleanaed. A cup of
strong black coffee removes tbe odor
of onlona; so- win a sprig of fresh
parsley, chewed. Charcoaf tablets are
good for those with this distressing af

Far Hardening the Qume.
A decoction of tannin, oak bark and
myrrh, which any druggist will com

condition of tbe gums. Tboae who are
affected In this way have to avoid too
salty foods, fruits that are very acid

Radishes sometimes cause aoftuess of
the gums. Too much fat or oUs la
also bad In such cases.
