of the original cargo of army supplies

to within a quarter of an hour of sail
ing voluntary donations kept piling in.
It is expected that San Juan will be
reached not Liter than Friday night.
The secretary of war, in the course of
his appeal to governors of states for aid
for the storm sufferers iu Porto Rico,
"Contributions should be either hi

Allen is in telegraphic communication

Esgate Says Dry Strip
Law Will Not Hold.
Restrictions Placed on Loafers
In Public Places.
Large Amount For Claim Holders
Council. The greater part of the City Coun
cil's time Monday night was taken
up with the reading and passing of
ordinances to assess certain rates of
taxation for the sprinkling of the
various streets of the City.
Early in the game the members
became weary of the formality of
voting on each ordinance, for there
was a large number, and asked that
the ordinances all be read, and the
voting done afterwards. The sug
gestion was pleasing to all, and
Clerk Isbell was reading fast. But
City Solicitor Esgate informed the
body that such procedure was not in
accordance with the law, so each or
dinance had to be voted on separ
ately, occupying a great deal of time.
Annexation Ordinance Passed.
An ordinance was passed to en
large the corporate limits of the City
by taking in a portion of Coventry
township, of the following dimen
sions: On the south, 930 acres; on
the west, 893 acres; on tho north, 903
ncrtjs; the boundary line on the south
being extended ;s,o00 feet; west,
3,000; northeast, 4,100; northwest,
1,900 of the present city limits.
Silver Street Bridge.
Council also adopted a resolution
to amend a resolution in reference to
the specifications for the building of
a bridge by the Northern Ohio rail
road at Silver st. The original reso
lution called for 19 feet clear space
above the grade of the street, but the
new resolution placed the limit at
ir feet. The railroad will soon
commence the building of the bridge,
which will be of iron.
Law Not Enforced.
Mr. Hrodt wanted to know why
the ordinance relating to leaving a
dry strip on the street for bicyclists
was not enforced. City Solicitor
Esgate said that Council now had
nothing to do with the matter, the
enforcement of the ordinance being
within the jurisdiction of the mayor
and chief of police. Furthermore,
Mr. Esgate is of the opinion that the
ordinance will not stand good for
this year if tested, owing to the fact
that contracts have been made for
the sprinkling of the entire street.
Ordinances and Resolutions.
The ordinance committee reported
favorable to revising section 318 of
the city ordinances, which relates
to loafing about public places, so
that it shall bo considered unlawful
for any person to loaf about public
places. The committee's report was
accepted, an ordinance authorizing
the change read and passed.
Ordinance to pay' claims audited
Aug. 14. Passed. Claims amount
ing to $69,567.22. The reason for the
bill's being so large was that some
outstanding bonus and notes are due.
Ordinance to amend section 78 of
the city ordinances relating to tho
governing of night soiling, so that
loaded wagons shall not be permit
ted to remain standing on public or
private property. Passed.

A Mother Tells How She Saved Her Little
I am the mother of eight children
and have had a great deal of exper
ience with medicines. Last summer
my little daughter had tho dysentery
in its worst form. We thought she
would die. I tried everything I could
think of, but nothing seemed to do
her any good. I saw by an adver
tisement in our pnper that Chamber
lain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy was highly recommended
and sent and got a Jiottle at once. It
proved to bo one of tho very best
medicines we ever had in the house.
It saved my little daughter's life. I
am anxious for every mother to know
what an excellent medicine it js.
Had I known it at first it would have
saved mo a great deal of anxiety and
my little daughter much suffering.

Troublesome to the Army.
During the civil war, as well as in
our late war with Spain, diarrhoea
was one of the most troublesome dis
eases the army had to contend with.
In many instances it became chronic
nnd the old soldiers still sufier from
it. Mr. David Taylor of Wind
Ridge, Greene Co., Pa., is one of
these. He uses Chamberlain's Colic
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, and
says he never found anything that
would give him such quick relief. It
is for sale by all druggists. E. Stein
