Charcoal is a remedy that the more,
you take of it the better it is not a
drug at all, but simply absorbs the
ases and impurities always present in
stomach and intestines and carries
them out of the system.
Charcoal sweetens the breath after
smoking, drinking or after eating on
ions and other odorous vegetables.
Charcoal effectually clears and im
proves the complexion, it whitens the
teeth and further acts as a natural and
eminently safe cathartic.
It absorbs the injurious gases which
collect in the stomach and bowels it
disinfects the mouth and throat from
the poison of catarrn.
All druggists 'sell charcoal in one
form or another, but probably the best

And, no one else can tell either, because they

to weak hearing what spectacles are to weak sight.
Because, they are sound-magnifiers, Just as

Deaf people cheerful and comfortable, because
such people can talk with their friends without the
friends having to shout back at them. They can hear
without straining. It is the straining that puts such
a queer, anslous look on the face of a deaf person.
Wilson'8 Ear Drums make all the sound strike
hard on tho center of tho human ear drum, Instead
of spreading it woakly all over the surface. It
'thus makes the center of the human ear drum
vibrate ton times as much as if the same sound struck
the whole dr,um head. It Is this vibration of the ear
drum that carries sound to the hearing Nerves.
When we make the drum vibrate ten times as much

as easy to understand.
This is why people who had not in years heard a
clock strike can now hear that same clock tick any
where in the room, while wearing Wilson's Ear

THE VALUE OF CHARCOAL. QJ'PY NEWS
CHINESE EDITOR DISCUSSES RE-
LATIONS WITH AMERICA.
An Editorial from a Home Paper Trans
lated by Local ChinamanIt De
clares That Present Immigration Re
strictions Are Absurd, and Will Pro
voke Loss to American Trade.
Moy S. James was seated comfortably
in a corner of the Shang Hai Low res
taurant this morning eating chop suev
and reading a sheet which looked as if
some printer's devil had been trying
to take his revenge on the paper trust.
The strange composition was really a
batch of the latest Chinese newspapers
rinted in Hongkong, Shanghai and
Francisco. One paper printed by
the Tai Tung Yat Bo Publishing com
pany, was devoted exclusively to the
recent Chinese boycott.
"These papers telt just what most, of
the Chinese believe,"- say Moy James
in answer to a query. I will translate
for you what in this country you would
calf an editorial:
'The "boycott"'is at best a brutal
way to redress wrongs. When it is de
liberately employed by a great and dig
nified nation to accomplish insignificant
ends, human language cannot express
the contempt which, such a nation de
serves. Under a strained interpretation
of the treaties with China, which has
been fastened upon the country by that
grotesque piece of legislation, the Chi
nese exclusion law, the. United States
is exercising the boycott to the utmost
limit of injustice and inhumanity. If
the people of America decide that one
class of Chinese visitors will be detri
mental to their business,,or other inter
ests, well and good proper restriction
laws will be submitted to gracefully and
willingly. But to apply such restric
tions without discrimination to the mer
chants, the studenjts, the educated class
es, the lawyers, and the visitors for
pleasure and intellectual improvement,
is in its very essence wrongful and un
just, and escapes being ridiculous and
contemptible only because of the se
rious results which follow.
'Retaliation seems to be an unal
terable law of human nature. Commerce
being supreme in China* as well as in
the United States, and the latter coun
try having instituted a boycott against
the former, the insulted merchants and
traders of China, supported by the other
suffering classes, will naturally try con
clusions at this not very dignified game.
The result is'not.'hard, to foretell. The
weakest and most vulnerable part of
the armor of the ruling class in Ameri
ica is its pocket.'
I was taught to believe when I
was a little boy," continued Moy
James, "that America was the great
est and most honorable nation. My
mother was a pupil in a mission school
and she used to tell me that America
was a Christian nation. When I de
cided to come to America, she said:
'Go, there you will find honest people.'
I believe that the Chinese will yet get
ah honest show."

IN NEW YORK HE EXHIBITS HIS
REINCARNATION AND CREDITS
TO THE SOUTH FOR IT. 7
In a letter to The Journal from
a former Minneapolitan now living in
New York city says:
From the enchanted' days when that
high-born.and romantic knight, Ponce de
Leon, and his trusty retinue, made their
way to the lansruorous lotus lands of the
south, where they performed strange
stunts while in the quest of the mystic
and elusive fountain of youth, to the
orange groves of the present century, is
a far cry, but for all that there is evi
dence that the early explorers were not
such poor experts in the matter of
alchemy after all.
Reference is made to the reincarnation
or rehabilitation in a physical sensethe
gray matter was always thereof W. W.
(Bill) Erwin, he of the classic brow and
Websterian train of thought.
The other day I was amost agreeably
surprised to meet the "Tall Pine of the
North" and his charmine wife at the
Fifth Avenue hotel. Instead of the care
worn, furrowed cheeks and brow that
characterized the appearance of the crim
inal lawyer, I met a smiling, smooth
faced and rosy-cheeked gentleman, whose
debonair and almost youthful appearance
and air of affluence made him seem at
lest twenty years younger than when
practicing at the bar in the northwest.
"You see," he remarked when queried
as to what had brought about the agree
able change, "I am now a resident of
Miama, Florida, and if ever the good
Lord planted a paradise on earth it is
right in that locality. I can sit on my
porch and while breathing the incense
from the perfumed air hear the nightin
gale call to his mate and once in a while
a big alligator will stick his nose out of
the water only a few feet from the ver
anda. In all ways, both for health, busi
ness and pleasure, it is the most opulent
and desirable place to live in, America."
Mr. Erwin said that his sojourn of
rthree years in the south had given him a
new lease of life, in more ways than one.
"I have given up criminal praeuue en
tirely," said he, "and there has not been
a month since I lived in Miama that: I
have not cleared good big money far
ahead of my living expenses?'
Mr. Erwin said that he is the vice
president of a trust company doing all
kinds of business, and in many other
ways he has actively identified himself
with the interests of his newly adopted

SPECIAL TRACKS AND SPECIAL

The Fourth of July picnic at the
grounds surrounding the Catholic or

events of the kind ever undertaken in
Minneapolis, as all of the Catholic par
ishes of the city will unite in the cele
bration. It is estimated that there may
be an attendance of 30,000 people and
plans are being made on a scale com
mensurate with that expectation. Music
will be furnished by the K. P. brass
band both afternoon and evening.
The sports and games committee met
last night and arranged a program of
athletic events .and games and amuse

ments have been made by the street
railway company to supply ample trans
portation- facilities. In order to do this,
extra tracks will be built at the end
of the line and several trailers will be
run with each motor ear. For the pres
