More-Time Given the United States

Six Months to Gt't Rebuttal Evidence
""nelatlnjc to tlio Xrnw bnugu Claim
.. jit J1,,rJurlty.rjjf Intention.
Boston, Dec. ao. Judge Colt In the
United States circuit court today gave the
United States unuTMar 31, 180G, In which
to taLe cvidenc-dln .rebuttal In the case of
ttie United Stales vs. the American Bell
Telephone Corripifby and Alexander Orabain
procuring the Dell Company'! patents Is
'raised. Judgci'"Colt refused to limit the
govgrjimentuo.).be; question or fraud raised.
The government has taken a vast amount
of evidence In support of the claim of
Daniel Drnwbaugb and the defendants
liae taken countervailing evidence on the
same Issues. The government uow wishes
to take evidence to rebut defendant's ei
dence, and the court has given time for that
purpose without restricting the govern
ment from talcing evidence on ttie question
of alleged priority of invention, which it
would have done had it granted request
of the defendant!).
From present indications the end of the
cane is notyct la sight, although ithjsbeen
pending fur nearly nino tears. The bill
was first f lied in January, 1 8S7; demurrers
were filed iindeustalaed by the circuit court,
but on appeal the demurrer's n ere overruled
nbd an amended lull was filed In December,
1&S8, after which answers were filed and
other proceedings taken, but it was not until
December, 1S89, ncurly three jcurs after
suit was brought, that evidence for the gov
ernment began to tie taken.
This part of. the case went on for about
two tears, or until January 11, 1892, when
the direct evidence for the government was
in. From that time until Not ember 7 of
ttie present year, the defendants bae been
f imttiiig In their testimony. The got em
inent now comes ,lu and asks for an ex
tcrcionofncarlj six months, which the court
'lias'Ktanfed. "
.At the hearing today counsel for the Bell
company said that if the government was
u6t restricted as requested It would not
only take six months to take the evidence in
rebuttal, but more than tnice six months.
After the etldctice is all in, the case has
still to be heard b the court ond after
that it can be ended for seterul years to
'(.that on appeal, so -that it Is not probable

A CONFIDENTIAL CHAT
between two men or women generally de
velops the fact that one or both are troubled
bv sickness of some kind. One man is all
right except his rheumatism, another has a
"slight touch" of dyspepsia, another has
bilious headaches, and another is too nerv
ous to sleep welL What's to be done about it?
The situation is serious. Little things
have a way offsetting big. Big diseases are
bad things. Sleeplessness brings irritable
nerves, loss of flesh, loss of appetite. Sleep
less people soon get their bodies into such
a condition that disease germs find it easy
to lodge there and propagate. People die
from the aggravation of an aggregation of lit
tle things. The mote promptly a disease or
disorder is met the more quickly it is cured.
Most all sickness starts in the stomach,
liver or lungs. Rheumatism, scrofula, ec
zema, consumption, come about because
Insufficient, impure or impoverished blood
is present The diseased blood finds the
weakest spot inlhe body and a local symp
tom appears. If the impurity is supplanted
with good, rich, red, ncalthy corpuscles,
the disease will have nothing to feed on.
If the proper cleansing medicine is sent to
the seat of the trouble, it will force out the
germs and repair the damage done.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is
a cleansing, purifying medicine, a blood
eniicber, a nerve strengtlieae?. It Is a
efficient (onle, olds digestion, cr&tci
healthy appetite and healthy flesh. It
docs net make people, "fat" It makes
them strong. It makes useful flesh solid

has its source in the digestivs organ, ot i

There was a Inrgc gathering at Rylnnd

profitable he ras ever had. During the
four weeks that he was In Chicago he is
said to have been grcctM bycrowded hemes
nightly, and as be had not been seen In
St. Louis, Cincinnati and Cleveland in two
jears he found his return to these cities
productive of large financial results. Not
