port will sail Saturday week for Glasgow
to investigate further regarding the death
of their son. Air. Dana Davenport, who
died in a rospital in that city after being
mising from home several weeks.
The apparent neglect of the consul to
carry out the requests sent by cable from
this country for the forwarding of the
clothes and papers of the young man has
aroused the hope in Air. Davenport that
perhaps the details were not well ar
ranged for his sou's burial, and the body
will be brought home and properly in
terred in tins country.
While in Scotland the parents will push
the investigation as to the cause of the
death of their son, and in this way per
haps the entire mystery as to his absence
will be solved.
The delay in replying has puzzled Air.
Davenport as well as the officials at tlie
State Department. A letter package "vvas
expected yesterday, and with it the pack
age regarding Air. Davenport, but it failed
Air. Davenport at first intended to sail
next Saturday, but as tlie department
thinks possibly the package will be here
some time next week anyway, Air. Daven

leaving for Glasgow.

"VOWS Li CIRCLE"
A Puzzle That JLcfoks Simple,
but Who Can , Do It?
NO l, ONE IN, A MILLION.
Here is a puzzle. "It looks simple. It
seems simple." Yet not one person in a
million can foIvo it. They may have
b"ea taught how to do u, i)Ut the fact
remains that they can't do it.
Whllo at first bluBh this may seem of
littl" or no consequence to either man or
woman, the reader will presently eee that
this puzle illustrates a principle that
b"ars directly upon the life and happiness
of every woman, and forms u controlling
factor in every profession.
CAN YOU DO IT?
The puzzle must lw solved with a piece
of paper, a iencil, the human eye, tlie
human hand and nothing olse. It is
simplj to mak'i by one operation and
without lifting tho pencil fiom the paper,
circls like that shown in Figure 1. You
may b able to make one such circle by
accid"nt, but if you think you can mnko
twenty in a day, in a week, or even in a
month, Just try it and get your friends to
try it. Tho circled muHt not lw like Fig
ure 2, but like Figure 1. You will soon
rind that this is not tiiTely a case of
"know how," for everybody knows how.
It is a cane of "know how" combined
with "never fail." Not one of five hun
dred young men and women college grad
uates can do It. Not even the one who car
ried off the highest honors. The one who
can do it is
ONE AAIONG .MILLIONS.
He began just the same as everybody
else did, by learning how to draw But
that's not the secret of his success; he made
a sp.ci,iit to din wing circles; he has been
dra wing them all his life, and jiract ice makes
perfect Give any woman a bow and ar
row, give a man a leaded revolver, and he
or she may sometimes hit the target, and
possibly the center, but how many hundred
times will they miss the mark This fre
quent failure, not only in target practice,
but in everything else. Is due to the fact
that not one person in a thcusand makes
a life specialty of one thing the one thing
he can do best and keeps right on mak
ing n spccialtyof it until he becc mes perfect.
A PARIS DRESSMAKER
There is a Avom.ui dressmaker m Farls
who for thitly years has been noted the
world over. Not once in a hundred times
does she fail to give a perfect Tit, et this
same woman made a silk inght-shiitforher
husband, and made a failure It wasn't
a case of not knowing how, for s lie had
learned how to make clothes Just as she
had learned how to draw; yet, try as 8he
would, she couldn't even make a night
shirt lor her husband that would fit, any
more than she could dfaw a circle that
was perfect '
A GREAT LAWYER
Daniel Webster, who was probably the
greatest constitutional Uiwer that ever
lived, was once completely lloored m a
patent case by a lawjer who made a spe
cialty of such cases Tlie "know how"
is the proper point to siart from, but it
is the practice the daily, hourly, con
stant practice Uiat makes perfect The
woman who has one night-shirt to make
in thirty years cannot be an expert in
inght-shirt.s, any more than the lawyer
who has one patent case in six months
can be an expert in. patent eases. The
doctor, who is called upon once ic week,
once a month, or, perhap. oitce in r-ix
nion'hs, to tieat this, that or tlie
other complicated disorder may succeed
once in a gre.it while, if lature comes to
the rescue, but he will usually fail, not
withstanding the fact that he has studied
medicine, jiii-t as the lawyer had studied
law, aud the woman had studied dress
making Tlie sum and substance of it all
is that practice makes jeileu
EXP ERIENCE NEEDED.
It is upon this theory, this principle, this
practice, that 'he greatest and most .suc
cessful health institution in America is
founded. Tor nearly thirty years experi
enced and skilled phvsicinns, connected
with this institution, have made a special
ty of curing the ailments and diseases
peculiar lo women Where the ordinary
practitioner treats one sue Ii case, the.skilled
specialists of this iiainution treat tens
of thousands, and what is regarded by the
local doctor as a complicated case, one
that puzzles his bram and baffles his skill,
is as simple of treatment and sure ot being
cured in this institution as is the drawing
of the perfect circle to that one man m a
million. Tins is another instance where
practice makes perfect It is a case
where one man can do what millions of
otherseannotdo, although they have learned
One reason why woman suffers in silence
agonies whiclfWould make a coward of the
strongest manis because her inborn modesty
causes her to shnuk from the ordeal of
submitting to medical examination and the
stereoljped "local treatment" When,
finally, torture drives her to seek advice,
she, unfortunately, only too ofteu falls
into hands that lack the rare ability of
drawing that "perfect circle" upon which
her peace of mind, her happiness and her
life depend. Instead of the treatment that
makes thousands of cures a certainty and
failure almost an unheard-of accident, she
receives that which makes iailure a cer
tainty and the cure a mere accident.
A VAST EXPERIENCE .
After having treated, year after year,
many thousands of cases of woman's ail
ments. Dr. R. V. Pierce, thief consulting
physician to the Invalid's Hotel and
Surgical Institute of Buffalo, N Y.,
learned not only the perfect methods, but
also the perfect medicines with which to
cure such cases Sd absolutely reliable
are Dr Pierce's Favorite Prescription
(for woman's peculiar phsyical "weak
ness") and Dr Tierce's Golden Medical
Discovery) the great) liver, blood and kid
ney remedy) that o'u first introducing
these now woild-famed "'medicines to the
afflicted, and for many1 years thereafter,
they were sold under a positive guarantee
of giving entire satisfaction to ev cry case
for which they are n'om mended So
uniformly successful 'did they prove in
curing the diseases,' derangements and
weaknesses for which they are re'eom
meuded that claims for tho return of
money paid for them were exceedingly
But since their manufacturers can now
refer to thousands of noted cures effected
by them in every part of the land, and in
many foreign countries, they believe their
past record a sufficient guarantee of their
gieat value as curative agents; therefore,
they now lest the claims of these remedies
to the confidence or the afflicted solely
upon that record. If it happens that an
exceedingly obstinate or complicated case
is not promptly conquered hy these stand
ard remedies, Dr. Pierce himself and his
trained staff of professional assistants can
I always be reached by letter, and he and
his staff know fiom their extensive prac
tice, which lias made them experts. 311st
what missing link to supply.
THE HIGHEST HONORS.
Such is the confidence bf his fellow
citizens Iu his eility, Integrity, and worth,
that Dr. Pierce has been honored by elec
tion to tho highest offices in the gift of
the people of Buffalo; first to the State
senate, and later to Congress. Such, how
ever. Is the doctor's pride In and love for
his profession that he has since repeatedly
declined high office in order (hat he may
best serve the public by serving his pa
tients, who are scattered over every State
and Territory iu the land, as is shown by
the fact that he has 011 file over
90,000 GRATEFUL LETTERS,
like the following:
Airs. Annie Hutchinson, of Cambridge,
Dorchester county, Aid., writes: "Words
fail to describe my sufferings before I
took Dr. Pierce's Golden Altdleal Discov
ery and his Tavorite Prescription.' I
could not walk across the room without
great suirerlng, but now I am able to
do my own work. Thanks to jour wonder
iul medicines, I am a well woman. I
suffered all the time with a weight in
the bottom of my stomach, and the most
severe bearing-down pains, low down,
across me, with every step I attempted
to take. I also suffered' intense pain
across my back and right hip. At times
I could not turn mjseir in bed. My com
plexion was yellow, my eyes bloodshot,
and my whole system was a complete
ck. I suffered greatly from headaches,
j. 1 the thought of food would sicken me.
Now I can eat anj thing and at any time.
Everyone thought I would not lire through
the month or August. Twoofcny neighbors
are using your medicines, and say they
feel like new beings."

"Aly baby was only seven days old when
I got up and dressed and left my room
and slaved up all day."
Airs William Hoover, of Bcllville, Rich
land county, Ohio, writes as follows "I
had been a great sufferer from 'female
weakness ' I tried three doctors; they
did me no good I thought I was an invalid
forever; but I heard of Dr Pierce's Golden
Al'-dical Discovery and his 'Favorite Pre

told me just how to take them I com

now I do all my work for a family of
five - Aly little girl had a ery bad cough

'Gulden Aledical Discovery,' and is now well
and happy "

of life, who -will Avrile Dr Pierce, or to the

NEW BLOOD IS ASKED FOE
Younger Men Said to Bo .Xecesj.su.ry ,n
at "Present the Management IIa-
Fallen Into 11 II tit Even Division
So Fur us Politics Is Concerned.
Color Line Also to tho Front.
The Commissioners will have the im
portant duty to perform soon of appoint
ing a full board of school trustees, the of
ficial term of each of the present incum
bents expiring by limitation on the 13th
day ot Septemlier
Notwithstanding the fact that there are
no applications yet placed with the Commis
sioners, there Is a decidedly lively inter
est b?ing taken 111 the matter, and there is
a strong probability that the board will
have a number of new members on its rolLs
next year Eleven are to lie chosen, the ad
dition of two btmig made by the last Con
gress The additional members are, un
der tlielaw, to be selected from the women:
ranks, and the two ladies now serving
will doubtless be continued, as they have
bea in office but a few months.
A vigorous effort is to be made to have
"new blood" infused, the outcropping
of the movement having been first mani
fested several months ago at a meeting
of the East Washington Citizen,' Associ
ation The demand will n that the young
men shall have a chance.
SCHOOL AFFAIRS IN A RUT.
It Is contended that the school affairs
have fallen into a groove, from which
they can be extricated only by a radical
change in the make-up ot tlie board.
The advocates of this proposition do
not reflect upon the present membership
in any particular as citizens, but say that
the schools need reconstructing, and that
this cannot be effected unless the recon
struction of the board precedes it.
It is also claimed that no one not a
bona fide resident of the District shoohl
be appointed a trustee. No one who draws
a salary from the United States govern
ment, as department clerk or 111 other
capacity, they say, should be iHaccd In
charge of the school interests, for the
leasoii that only such time as can be
spared from departmental duties can be
devoted to the District interests, aud
this, it is dec'ared, is not sufficient.
Each member of the lioard is expected
to Msit tlie schools in his or her particular
division, and to devote such tune to the
details of school work as the importance
of the interest demands. With few not
able exceptions, the new departure ad
vocates say, the present membership has
faded to do this, and it is charged that
even the meetings of the Loan! are sumly
attcuded, thus leaving the conduct of af
fairs to a comparatively few.
TREAT ALL PARTIES FAIRLY.
Politics will probably cut a figure, in
cidentally. It is not by any means im
probable that the Commissioners will be
asked to keep a "fair divide" in view when
making their selections. It is not the
purpose, the agitators declare, to bring
polities into the schools, but now that
tliere is an opportunity, they believe they
have the right to expect that the Com
missioners will give all parties an equitable
share in the make-up of the board, and not
leave it in its present one-aided construc
tion. The color question is likely to piny a
part also, and it is understood tliere will
be a move made for the selection or three
new representatives of the colored race
The present members are ex-Senator B
K Bruce, Dr. T D. Shatld, and L. A.
There was an effort to have two of
these ousted at the time they were last
appointed, a year ago, but it failed
That the same attempt will be repeated
at this juncture is confidently expected
Petitions aru already in circulation in
behalf of the new aspirants, as well as
for the present incumbents The interest
in the selections is augmented by the fact
that the appointees will hare the naming
or the teachers for the three school years
succeeding the present term.
Ex-Senator Bruce, the oldest member
of the present board, has anuounceil to
his friends that he is not a candidate for
reappointment, and this makes a new selec
tion in his place imperatlre.
Two colored ministers hare been named
for appointment. They are Dr. Walter H.
Brooks, pastor of the Nineteenth Street
Baptist Church, and Dr. George W. Lee,
of the Vermont Avenue Baptist Church.
The Commissioners will be deluged soon
with petitions, and their official quarters
will doubtless ere long be the scene of
numerous public hearings in behalf of
the candidates whose interests wjll be
represented by rival delegations.
The office of trustee has no salary at
tached, and the duties incumbent, if
properly attended to, are very exacting.
Aniphitrlte to Go Out of Com mixtion.
The monitor Amphitrite sailul to-day
from Port Royal to Norfolk, where she will
be surveyed and her defective ventilating
apparatus thoroughly repaired and re
placed. It is 1 ot unlikely that the Am phi
trite will be plac.- out of commission, as
the refitting- may take some time. The re
cent trip of the Aniphitnte from Hampton
Roads developed how poorly she is venti
lated. Twenty-eight men were orercome
by the heat between decks.
Facts About Conductor Scott.
Reiatires of Frank Scott, tlie cable line

he did not kick Conductor Sweeney; and
did not get his position through influence
of the latter's wife.
