* -.

A grain of sand in the eye can cause
excruciating agony. A grain of pep-
per in place of' the grain of sand in-
tensifies the torment. The pain is not
confined to the organs affected. The
whole body feels the shock of that
little irritating particle. It is so
when there is any derangement or
disorder of the delicate womanly or-
gans. Lu e disorder may seem trivial
but the whole body feels it. The ner-
vous system is disordered. There are
fretfulness, irritability, sullenness and
depression of spirits. The general
health of woman depends on the local
health of the organs peculiarly femi-
nine. Remove the drains, ulcerations,
bearing down pains, and other afflic-
tions of woman, and the whole body
feels the benefit. Dr. Pierce's Favor-
ite Prescription is a specific for the
diseases of women. It is free from
opium, cocaine and other narcotics,
poisons which enter into many other
preparations for woman's use. It
makes weak women strong and sick
women well.



Recent investigations by the authorities of several States have s6
tracted attention to proprietary medicines, and there isa marked dispel
sition t6draw a sharp line of distinction between mysterious nostrumu
and worthy articles of scientific compound and known character.
"Many proprietary medicines," says a leading
phy Ikian, ** are the best possible prescriptions for the
diseases which they are made to cure. It is certainly
only reWsoAable to expect that chemists of.
world-wide reputation and unlimited re-
sources ought to make compounds with excep-
tional skill, and it is manifestly to their in-
terest to have their ingredients fresh and
pure. *Take, for example, Lippman's great
remedy, popularly known as P. P. P.
The formula. is on every bottle. Every
physician knows that the ingredients are
the best possible remedies for purify-
Ing the blood, and the compound is
a scientific one, which increases the
efficiency of the whole. I some-
times prescribe special mixtures
for Blood Polsonini, Scrofulous
Affections, Catarrh, Frpnpm* and other ,
complaints rising from impure and weak -
blood, but ways feel safest in prescribing P. P. P.. especially whe
I am notz personally asqu inteA with the druggist. In prescribing
P. P. P. (LU pman's Great Remedy), I kpow I am taking nocbaace"*
Wbe doctors feel such confidence in. a standard remedy, It Is
m0 wonder that the general public insist upon having it.
P. P. P. is sold by all druggists. $S a bottle; six bottles, $5.

Land of Powe.

.JOHN C. TRICE, Ed. and Prw r.

It seems practically certain
nowadays that the chief ques-
tion which will convulse on-
gress and he nation nextjwin-
ter will be that of the -'riff,
both in its relation to trust-n ade
goods and in connection with
the reciprocity treaties 1hich
were so unceremoniously barked
last winter. The matter will
probably first come up ij con-
nection with Cuba, which will
negotiate a reciprocity treaty
with the United States as soon
:as its Government is organized
and capable of making any trea-
ties at all.
President McKinley has prom.
ised to urge the ratification of
this upon Congress by every
means in his power and will
probably keep his word in view
of his well known sentiments on
the subject.
But the protected interests are
already up in arnis, the beat
sugar men of the West taking
the lead. They have threaten-
ed to fight the proposed recip-
rocity to a finish. The tobacco
men do not care so much, as
they say Cuban tobacco does
not come into competition with
the American product except in
an indirect way.
Senator Platt's own State of
Connecticut raises a great deal
of tobacco, and while the Sena-
tor says that he has not yet
heard of any objections to re-
ciprocity with Cuba, neverthe-
less his state would be false to
her record if she did not protest
bitterly sooner or later, it beini
Connecticut which was chief y
responsible for the abandon-
ment of "plain duty" and whose
influence prevented the consid-
eration of the French recipro-
city treaty.
According to Senator Platt it
is not proposed by anyone to
give Cuban products free atd-
mission to the United States-
the home sugar growers are not
willing to make any concessions
whatever, and they are already

appealing to other interests
which are not involved in the
Cuban arrangement to stand by
Their argument is that an at-
tempt is to be made to lower all
the important tariff schedules
by means of reciprocity treaties,
not only with Cuba, but with
most of the leading nations;
therefore the whole protective
system is involved, they say,
and it behooves all who are in-
terested to make a test case of
the Cuban treaty and beat it if
Interest in the subject is stead-
ily growing, and both sides are
lining up for a battle royal next

Washington, May 18.--The War De-
partment has awarded contracts for
the removal of the Confederate dead
from the cemetery at the Soldiers'
Home and from other local graveyards
to the National Cemetery, at Arling-
ton, where they will be grouped on a
beautiful plot of three and one-half
acres. The graves' will be arranged
within a circle surrounding a mound
upon wuich will be placed flowers and
shrubbery, the .remainder of the plot
being planted with similar growths, in-
cluding trees native to Southern soil.
bill appropriating the money neces-
sary for the removal ot the bodies was
passed by Congress some time ago, and
.we work would have been carried out
last fall had it not been for sbme oppo-
sition that was aroused in the South.
accordingly the removal was post-
poned for several mw.ths o- allow time
for the list of:f tie ead to Abe publised

the friends of any particular person de-
sired to take their deau. elsewh* they
were at libe'CY t- uob so. No responses
have been received, and the Depart-


with the average area of an American
county, hal an adminltrative estab-
lishment as large as that of an Ameri-
can State, and each official draws a
salary from two to five times as great
as that paid the average American
public servant. The expenses and rev-
enue of Jamaica, for instance, are ex-
actly the same as those of the State of
Texas, which has seventy times the
area and five times the population of
this British dependency. The popula-
tion and wealth of the islands are not
sufficient to support more than one
small and efficient administrative
torce, but they are taxed to support
eight governments, for places must be
made for political favorites and
younger sons who cannot be cared for
in their native lands. Porto Rico has
already h4d a taste of this, the resu.i
being evident already in the misery
.,-at exists there.
The Supreme Court will meet only
twice more before adjournment for the
summer, and yet there is not the
slightest indication of a decision in the
colonial cases being handed down.
w while no one wants to hurry the court
unduly, nevertheless the impression is
gaining ground here that some decision
should be rendered. The Porto Rican
act was passed more than two years
ago. It was based on the theory that
the Constitution does not follow the
flag ;that our new insular acquisi-
tions are not under the Constitution;
not integral parts, but colonial possess-
ions of the United States. That theory
has shaped our policy toward all of
those acquisitions, and has been the
government's policy for more than two
years Meanwhile, cases have been
pending in the Federal Courts-most
of the time in the Supreme Court-in-
volving the vaildity of the Porto Rican
act and, consequently, the constitution-
ality of the government's insular pol-
icy. The most momentous conse-
quences hang on the ueferred decision,
and it certainly seems desirable that
iL should not be postponed for another
six months.
Counterfeiting seems to be becom-
ing one of the lost arts. So far this
year only four counterfeits have been
discovered, and but six weeks of the
fiscal -year remain. This -breaks the
record for dullness in the counterfeit-
ing business. Last year nine counter-
feits were discovered, the year before
that seventeen, while in still earlier
years from twenty to forty was the
number. Counterfeiting does not pay
any more. The Secret Service men
say it is as easy to pass a bogus bill
now as it ever was, but they think the
good times and plenitude of employ-
ment has induced a great many of the
old-time workers to turn honest.

day, Mrs. R. H. %amble was aroused
by a noise in her hall like some one
falling, anu on going to see what
caused it was shocked to see a bright
light flaming up from all around the
prostrate form of a lady guest,- Miss
Porter. She immediately hurried to
the back hall and found Miss Porter
in a faint, and an over-turned lamp
from which the burning oil was run-
ning and encircling the helpless lady
in a sheet of flame.
Mrs. Gamble did not lose her pres-
ence of mind under the trying experi-
ence, as many another lady would
have done, but calling for help, pulled
Miss Porter from the encircling fire,
and rushing for blankets, succeeded
in smothering the flames.
Miss Porter, it seemed, had just re-
covered from an attack of illness, and
was consequently very weak. During
the nigi in question, wishing a glass
of water, she attempted to go to the
bath-room for it, carrying t..e lamp.
On reaching the back porch, her
weakness overcame her auid she faint-
ed. with the results as stated above.
Fortunately. there was not very
much oil in the lamp, or the result
would have been much more serious.
As it was only the fortunate awaken-
ing of Mrs. Gamble uy the noise of
Miss Porter's fall anu her hurrying to
ascertain the cause prevented Miss
Porter from being fatally bhtrned,and
possibly the destruction of t-e house
as well :
Dr. Palmer was summoned and
dressed the burns Miss Porter had
sustained, one on the knee-cap being
quite severe.
Mrs .Gamble has been much com-
mended for her coolness and presence
of mind, and all are congratulating
her for toe happy escape from what
could have easily been a serious con-
flagration or greater tragedy.

It Is a mystery why women endure
Backache, Headache, Nervousness,
Sleeplessness, Melancholy, 1' painting
and Dizzy Spells when thousands have
proved that Electric Bitters will
quickly cure such troubles. "I suffer-
ed for years with kidney trouble,"
writes Mrs. Phebe Cherley, of Peter-
son. Ia.. "and a lame back pained me
so I could not dress myself, but Elec-
tric Bitters wholly cured me, and, al-
though 73 years old. I now am able to
ao all my housework." It overcomes
constipation, improves appetite, gives
perfect health. Only 50c at all drug-

"You may talk about 'your city circus
goers," said the old circus man, "but
the Indian, the wild, untutored red man
of the plains, has got them all beaten
to death. There's no circus goer in the
world like the North American aborig-
ine. He will travel farther, endure
more privations and skimp himself
harder to get the price of admission
than any other human being in the
wyrld. What's more, I believe he real-
ly enjoys the circus better than the ne-
gro, though he doesn't make any fuss
over it.
"The negro, as every circus man
knows, will sell the family cook stove

who never paid a debt in his life, bobs
up promptly on circus day with his 5.)
cents, though nobody knows where lie
got it. But the Indian is the greatest
circus fiend of all.
"In the west our circus is known
among the Indians as 'the heap big
brothers' show.' It is the only circus
that attracts the red man, and he waits
for its yearly appearance as -ontidently
as lie awaits the return of spring. In
Missoula, Mon.. one of our regular
stands, fully one-half of the audience is
made up of Indians. They come from
as far as 200 miles on horseback and
even on foot, starting on their long
journey days before the circus date and
arriving promptly on the morning of
the day of exhibition.
"On circus day it is a case of every
man for himself with the Indians. The
lord of the tepee brings enough trinkets
in the shape of moccasins and bows
and arrows to peddle around town and
In this way gets money for his own ad-
mission ticket. His squaw brings wil-
low baskets and has to hustle for her
own ticket. They generally come in
couples astride of a pony, and if the
market is overcrowded with Indian rel-
ices they will sell the nag.
"When the show trains arrive in
these western towns early in the morn-
ing 200 and 300 tents have already been
pitched by the Indians, some of which
have arrived the night before. Their
little colony is almost as Interesting as
the circus itself. It is a veritable ba-
zaar of relics and papoose exhibitions.
While the old squaws are getting
breakfast the children are playing
games and the chiefs are taking their
knickknacks to the market. They are
the first ones after the doors of the big
tents are opened to land on the blue
planks. They fill a good part of the
arena, and they never move during the
entire performance. Applause is un-
known to them. They make as little
show of enthusiasm as their brothers
in wood in front of the white man's ci-
gar stores. If the trick elephant were
to climb the center pole, they would no
doubt enjoy the performance, but they
would make no more show of surprise
than if they were molded from clay. If
the performing mule were to walk out
on the hippodrome track and make a
concert announcement in the Indian
tongue, they would only grunt.
"After the show is over the chiefs
proceed to fill their skins with the
white man's firewater, and the squaws
with the papooses wait on the lumber
piles till the gray streaks begin to
sprout over the hills, when the un-
steady train winds out of town over the
"Along the Pacific coast the China-
men are among thle firm friends of the
circus people. Like the Indians, they
are good patrons of this particular

show. In San Francisco at least 50,000
Chinamen saw the circus one season.
Some of them came in coaches drawn
by handsome horses, and they sat in
boxes. Mongolian merchants worth
their millions gave matinee parties, the
men wearing richly embroidered gowns
and the women clad in costly silk cut
not in the form of dresses, but as a
man wears his broadcloth. At one
matinee given in the California city
8,000 Chinese and fully 2,000 Japs at-
tended. The remaining few of the
spectators were Americans. The Chi-
naman is as undemonstrative as the
Indian. He expresses his appreciation
of the performance by attending time
after time.
"Probably the strangest mixture of
people that ever attended a circus was
found beneath the tent of our show one
day at Tucson, A. T., when Indians,
Mexicans, greasers, Japs, negroes, Chi-
namen and a few American cowboys
fairly packed the big canvas arena and
sat promiscuously mixed over the blue
seats. Though the Chinamen and In-
dians are undemonstrative, the cow
punchers, Mexicans and negroes made
as much noise that day as was ever
made at a frontier massacre. The cow-
boys yelped like a pack of coyotes
when Mme. Noble rode the buckitg
horse, the Mexicans yelped at every
act, and the negroes laughed at the
clowns till the earth shook. That night
the cowboys and greasers turned the
town into a shooting gallery, emptying

Down a Steeri Canyon W;ihout
Brui4i, or a Scear. .
Few mountaineers go far enough
Into the avaaiuer-e regions to see muhiii
of them, and fewer still know the.
thrilling exhilaration of riding on
them, says Jolhki.Muir in The Atlanti,:.
In all my wild liiountaineering I have:
enjoyed only oni avalanche ride, and"
the start was s4 sudden and the end
came so soon I thought but little, of
the danger that toes with this sort of
travel, though ow thinks fast at such
times. T
One ca!m. hrigh liorninig in Yosemite,.
after a hearty s >rmn lhad given three
or four feet of fro;.h snow to the mnoun-
tains, being eagr to see as many
avalanches as possible and gain wide
views of the peaks and forests array-
ed in their new robes before the sun-
shine had time to change or re'arra.ige
them, I set out early to climb by a side
canyon to the top of a commanding
ridge a little over 3,000 feet above the
valley. But I was not to get top views
of any sort that .day, but instead of
these something :quite different, for
deep trampling near the canyon head
where the snow \was strained started
an avalanche, ai(ldl was swished back
down to the foot of the canyon as if by
enchantment. TI plodding, wallow-
ing ascent of abo*t a mile had taken
all day, the undoing descent perhaps
about a minute.

When the snow suddenly gave way,
I instinctively th w myself on my
back and spread ny arms to try to
keep from sink ng. Fortunately,
though the grade f the canyon was
steep, it was not terrupted by step
levels or precipic s big enough to
cause outbounding or free plunging.
On no part of the rush was I buried.
I was only mode itely imbedded on
the surface or a little below it and
covered with a hi snug back streaming
veil, and as the lole mass beneath
or about me joined in the flight I felt
no friction. thlo," tossed .here an-'.

Some of the Prerogatives VWhleh Em-

A curious privilege of an embassador
is that he an'l he alone when dismiss-
Sed may turn his back to the sovereign
Sto v.hose court he is accredited. The
mode of procedure is as follows:
Wien the ambassador's audience is
over. lie waits to be dismissed by the
sovereign. When dismissed, the em-
bass.:dor bows. retires three paces.
bows again, retires another three
paces, bows a third time. turns on his
: heels and walks to the folding doors.
But it is felt that more polite methods
should obtain when the reigning sov-
ereign is a woman. To turn his back
is to be discourteous, to walk back-
ward is to resign a privilege. The em-
bassador retires sideways, like a crab.
He keeps one eye on the sovereign and
with the other tries to see the door.
He thus shows politeness to the sov-
ereign and at the same time retains
one of his privileges. As the embassa-
dor is usually an old neitlmnnn nften

How an Italian Tenor Was Enabled
to Reach High C.
"There was once an Italian tenor at
Covent Garden of the name of Tasca,
who, I am sorry to say, sang his own
praises better than the score," says Mr.
William Parry, the stage director at
the Metropolitan Opera House.
"For this and other reasons he was
strongly disliked by all the workmen.
One day he came to me and said. with
great show of mystery:
'Tell me the exact spot.'
"I could hot for the life of me under-
stand what lie wanted.
"'You know well enough what 1
mean.' he persisted. 'Show me the
spot where Tamberlik sang the high C.
There is always one spot on the stage
that is better Ihan all the others to
stand on when you sing. Where is it?'
'I'll show you later:' I replied. 'But.
remember, never a word. It would
cost me my place if it should leak out.'
"Then I drove a brass tack ;nto one
of the stage boards, and he was over-
joyed when I solemnly pointed out 'the
exact spot.' and so were the workmen
at the prospect of a joke at his expense.
That night he carefully stood on the
tack and sang the high C. Rushing
into the wings, he exclaimed: 'Beauti-
ful! Wonderful!' Ever afterward, no
matter what part of the stage demand-
ed his presence, he would rush to the
tack when the time for the high C
came and there deliver it."-Saturday

The Rehearsed Wedding.
The wedding was. upon the whole.
an artistic success. The bride particu-
larly evinced unmistakable talent. She
trembled with all the technical accu-
racy of an aspen leaf and the emo-

trembling indeed was irreproachable.
If she cast down her eyes with some-
thing of amateurish gawkiness. the
fact is easily attributable to her inex-
perience. this being her first wedding.

method. She was fairly well support-

A. R. Hemmingway, under an indict-
ment for manslaughter, for the killing
of B. F. Tilton, at Popeville, some
weeks ago, was put upon his trial and
acquitted of the charge on Monday
last. The jury that tried him was com-
posed of representative citizens of this
community-both of the city and
county-in fact, we have seldom seen
a better jury drawn for the box. The
killing of the deceased was not dis-
puted by the accused, the question was
simply whether or not under the law
Hemmingway was guilty of man-
slaughter, or was justified through hin
fear of bodily harm and serious injury
in shooting the deceased.
