Etruria and Umbria in Communication
New York, Dec. 17.-The Cunarder
Etruria, whch has just arrived here,
was in communication for more than
five hours in mid-ocean with her sister
ship, the Umbria. Long before either
ship sighted the other their command
ers were conversing by the Marconi
wireless system. The position of each
ship was known to the other hours be
fore the main trucks showed above the
horizon. The Etruria left Liverpool
on Dec. 7, the same day the Umbria
steamed out of New York. They were
1,630 miles east northeast of Sandy
Hook when they passed each other last
Wednesday. Four hours before that,
or when they were fully 100 miles
apart, the receiver on the Etruria began
to click warningly. The operator re
plied and then the word "Umbria"
was slowly spelled out on the Etru
ria's instrument. Then followed the
Umbria's location. The Etruria re
plied giving her location, which show
ed her to be fully 100 miles away from
the other vessel. The Umbria sent
her number of passengers, the fact
that all was well and the latest news
from New York. The Etruria sent
word of the burning of the great Liv
erpool exchrnge quadrangle which oc
curred on Dec. 6.

I use and prescribe Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy for almost all obstinate,
constricted coughs, with direct results.
I prescribe it to children of all ages.
Am glad to reccommend it to all in need

dies but did not obtain permanent relief
until I commenced using One Minute
Cough." writes Rev. James Kirkman,

no hesitation in recommending it to all
sufferers from maladies of this kind." One
Minute Cough Cure affords immediate
relief for coughs, colds and all kinds of
throat and lung troubles. For croup it
is unequalled. Absolutely safe. Very
pleasant to take, never fails and is really
a favorite with the children. They like
it. M E. Doe & Co., Campbell Drug

A Good Cough Medicine.
I find Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is
an excellent medicine. I have been suf
fering from a severe cough for the last
two months, and it has effected a cure.
I have great pleasure in recommending
it.-W. C. Wockner. This is the opinion
of one of our oldest and most respected
residents, and has been voluntarily given
in good faith that others may try the
remedy and be benefitted, as was Mr.
Wockner. This remedy is sold by M. E.
Doe & Co., Druggists.
Health and Beauty.
A poor complexion is usually the re
sult of a torpid liver or irregular action
of the bowels. Unless nature's refuse is
carried off it will surely cause impure
blood. Pimples, boils and other erupt
ions follow. This is nature's method of
throwing off the poisons which the bow
els failed to remove. DeWitt's Little
Early Risers are world famous for rem
edying this condition. They stimulate
the liver and promote regular and heal
thy action of the bowels but never cause
griping, cramps or distress. Safe pills.
