Nominee for Congress Hank Smith is a member of the law firm of Watts Bean & Smith, of Adrián. Seth Eean of the flrm, is a Democrat, and has fo a long time considered that that por tion of hls anatomy upon which hi mother applied her slipper when h was a boy would pretty well fit a sea in the house of representatives at Wash ington. He has even made arrange ments with Hank Smith whereby if h can get the Democratie nomination tha they are tooth to tend to their law busi ness and not maks a speech during th campaign. Prior to the St. Louis convention in 1896 Smith was a red-hot free silve man and Bean was a single standarc advocate. Watts used to get so tired o hearing them argue in the office that he would throw down his boofes, go down into the corner grocery and listen to the statesmen settle the great questions o the day. After the St. Louis conven tion, to which Smith was a delégate, the present nominee for congress experi enced a change of heart and Smith and Bean were agreed that the single standard was the only financial policy proper for this country. Watts took a little peace in the office. Finally came the Chicago convention. Bean attended it. He came back converted to the free silver cause and then he and Smith had it again and have been having it ever slnce. No wonder they do not wish to go out and give public joint debates. The D. A. R.'s (lood Work. The Daughters of the American Revolution are preparing boxes as rapidly as possible, to be sent to Miss Cora Clark, the nurse lately sent out under their auspices to Chickamauga, for the comfort of sick soldiers at Leiier hospital. Miss Clark, in a recent letter, writes: "Do you want to know what I have done today. I have had 29 typhoid fever cases, four able to wak upon themselves, the rest helpless; temperature 101 to 105. Eight of the lightest cases were removed from my división and eight brought in with temperature Ü04 to 105. I have only two volunteer helpers, untrained. I am glad to say that none have died, but what tomorrow will bring forth I cannot teil. My heart aches for them. I go on duty from 6 a. m. to 6 p. m. but seldom get off before 7:50. The dainties sent by the D. A. R. were most acoeptable and now I am eroin? to teil you what is most needed. Canned soups, condensed milk and dainties. niarht shirts, open all the way down the back (easy to put on a helpless patiënt), towels of cheap crash, record sheets such as are used at the hospital, travs and medicine fflasses, quantities of old linen for cleansiner mouth and disinfectants for mouth wash, little bags made of cheap ginpham with draw striner to haner on bed for soap and wash cloth - in f act everythinEc is needed and nothing will come amiss." Ma.inr Carter writes: "Two hunöred and twelve in Leiter hospital sick with typhoid fevpr and as many more expected in: thankine the Daughters of the American Revoiution for their timely e-ifts. which eco into immediate use.

Frederick A. Graves, administrator of the estáte of Marietta Bennett, deceased, by his attorneys, J. W. Babbitt and E. P. Allen, has moved for a new trial in the Schemerhorn case for the following reasons: 1. The verdict of the jury at the trial of said cause was against the law and evidence as given in open court. 2. That since said trial new and material evidence, not known at the time of said trial, has come to the knowledge oe the contestant which if produced will change the result. In support of this is an affldavit from Maj. John P. Kirk, who has been absent on military duty since May 15. He makes affidavit that he, in company with Fred W. Green, heard Jerome Schemerhorn offer to pay to Jos F Webb $200 if he would swear that'he' the said '"Webb, at the time he was at the residence óf Mariette Eennett for the purpose of executing a certain lease read the will of said Marietta Bennett' and that in said will Schemerhorn was to have the property of said Bennett. Richard Hamilton nf vn.n. makes affidavit that he knew Jerome bcnemerhorn when he first came to Ypsilanti, and that he (Schemerhorn) first worked for Jos. Sanders instead oí for Doe.
