REPORT WILL SHOW
. Washington, Dec. 31.--The forthcom
ing treasury statement of the govern
ment expenditures will show a deficit
for the first six months of the current
fiscal year of approximately $64.288.
463. The receipts of the customs for
the six months will aggregate about
$13,0013,076; internal revenue about
$128,740,530, and receipts from mniscel
laneous sources about $25,679,305.
There is a falling off in customs as
conmpiared with the corresponding pe
riod inl 1907 of about $27.680,000 and a
del'cease of internal revenue of about
$4,0000000, and in miscellaneous re
cellpts of about $3,000,000. The ex
penditures luring the same period
will amount to nearly $358,000,000, as
against $325.000.000 for the first six
monIths of the last tiscal year.
The heaviest increase will Ie shown
to hl) oii ;tittount of the war depart
mont, which will aplroximate $12,500,
000. The' 'lvil andl milscell:hteous ex
ipenitures have increasetd abhout $1,
500.000, as empared with the corre
sponding p'rid last year.
The Pure Food Law.
Secretary Wilson says: "One of the
objects of ith law is to inform the
con. ulnLer of the presence of certain
harmful drugs in medicines." The law
requires that the amount of chloro
formn, opium, morphine and other habit
forming drugs be stated on the label of
each bottle. The manufacturers of
'hambe:laln's Cough Remedy have al
ways claimed that their remedy did
not contain any of these drugs, and
the truth of this claim is now fully
proven, as no mention of them is made
on the label. This remedy is not only
one of the safest, but one of the best
in use for coughs and colds. Its value
has been proven beyond quest' n dur
ing the many years it has been .n gen
eral use. For sale by all druggists.
HAVE VOTES ENOUGH
TO PASS MEASURE
WVashington, Dec. 31.--"We have
the votes to have the postal savings
bank bill if we can get a roll call,"
says Senator Carter of Montana, who
has the measure in charge. "A num
ber of senators have given notice,
however that they desire to discuss
the bill and will require some days
to prepare their speeches. When con
gress assembles after the holiday re
wess two calendar months, containing
only 50 legislative days, will remain
for thle present session, during which
time the great approprllation hills
must he passed. I am not prepared to
speaik for the other legislative body.
I iam told that the house committee
on p ,stofflies a.nd postroads may want
to hold a hearing before the bill is
taken ulp in the house for discussion."
Don't Take the Risk.
When you have a bad cough or cold
do not let it drag along until it be
comes chronic bronchitis, or develops
into an attack of pneumonia, but give
it the attention it deserves and get
rid of it. Take Chamberlain's Cough
Remejly and you are sure of prompt
relief. From a small beginning the
sale and use of this preparation has
extended to all parts of the United
States and to many foreign countries.
Its many remarkable cures of coughs
and colds have won for it this wide
reputation and extensive use. Sold by

was announced that an auditing com
mittee of the Pike's Peak Camp No. 5,
Woodmen of the World, of which
camp Clerk C. P. Esslck was a clerk
for 20 years, had discovered a shortage
in Essick's funds of $600. Esslck kept
the funds at his house. The police au
thorities believe that the money was
taken by the person who killed Essick
and that the killing may have been
done to cover the theft.
