Peculiar Power Possessed By a New
Of nevr discoveries there is no end,
but one of the most recent, most re
markable and one which will prove
invaluable to thousands of people, is
a discovery which it is believed will
take the place of all other remedies
for the euro of those common and
obstinate diseases, dyspepsia and
stomach troubles. This discovery is
not a loudly advertised, secret pat
ent medicine, but is a i-cientific com
bination of wholesome, perfectly
harmless vegetable essences, fruit
salts, pure pepsin and bismuth.
These remedies are combined in
lozenge form, pleasant to take, and
will preserve their good qualities in
definitely, whereas all liquid medi
cines rapidly lose whatever good
qualities they may have had as soon
as uncorked and exposed to the air.
This preparation is called Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets and it is claimed
that one of these tablets or lozenges
will digest from 300 to 3.CIC0 times its
own weight of meat, eggs and other
wholesome food. And this claim has
been proven by actual experiments
in the following manner: A hard
boiled egg cut into small pieces was
placed in a uottie containing anu
water heated to US d&grees (or blood
heat): one of these tablets was then
placed in the bottle and the proper
temperature maintained for three
hours and a half, at the end of which
time the egg was as completely di
gested as it would have been in a
healthy stomach. This experiment
was undertaken to demonstrate that
what it would do in the bottle it
would also do in the stomach, hence
its unquestionable value in the cure
of dyspepsia and weak digestion.
Very few people are free from some
form of indigestion, but scarcely two
will have the same symptoms. Some
will suffer most from distress aftor
eating, bloating from gas in the
stomach and bowels, others have
acid dyspepsia or heartburn, others
palpitation or, headaches, sleepless
ness, pains in chest and under
shoulder blades, extreme nervous
ness as in nervous dyspepsia, but
they all have same cause, failure to
properly digest what is eaten. The
stomach must havi rest and assist
ance and Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
give it both, by digesting the food
for it. and in a short time it is re
stored to its normal action and vigor.
At thf siiiiif" tinip thn Tablets are so
harmless that a child can take them j
with benefit. This new preparation
has already made many astonishing
cures, as for instance, the following:
After using only one package of
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets 1 have
received such great and unexpected
benefit that I wish to express my
sincere gratitude. In fact it has
been six months since I took the
package and have not had one parti
cle of dKtres or difficulty since.
And all this in the face of the fact
that the best doctors I consulted told
mo my case was chronic dyspepia
and absolutely incurable as 1 had
suffered twenty-five years. 1 dis

Cape Town, Oct. 1. The power of
Paul Kroger must not be underesti
mated. He has the financial world by
the neck. By blowing np the gold mine
lie can reduce the supply of yellow
metal enough to make a panic througb
nt the world and perhaps change the
financial policies of wme of the great
i st nation.
The Boers know that the British lov
gold. In fact, gold has been the chief
cause of the present trouble. Thousands
of people of all classes in England own
stock in South African mines. These
people can never be hit by Boer bnllets,
because they will stay at home. There
is another way of piercing their hearts,
however, and thnt is through their
pockets. Why not blow np the gold
The gold production of South Africa
is now estimated atabont 100,000,000
a year, almost equal to the entire pro
duction of the world in 1890. when the
total was only 1 18.500,000. The mines
from which this vast wealth comes are
not all within reach of the Boers, but
most of them are. To work havoc it is
not necessary to dettroy the mining ex
cavations, but only the machinery. A
few hundred pounds of dynamite wonld
destroy the pumping works of the prin
cipal mines in the Transvaal and shut
off gold production for years. Machin

posed to snch depredations.
The valne of the gold product of
leading mines is dazzling. In 1804 the
principal fields produced 2.2o9,80o
ounces, vnlned at about 35,000.000.
In 1895 there was an increase of over
S5.000.000. Since 1890 the yield has
increased at the rate of between $5,
000.000 and ?6, 000. 000 a year. It has
been calculated that within 50 years

It is not probable that the Boers will

may be a source of profit to themselves
or an available object of negotiation
with the British. When their hope of
success is gone, however, nobody fa

They look upon gold as the thing

Adopted at the Zanesville Convention, Au

First We heartily reaffirm the Chicago platform of
1896 and we especially emphasize the financial plank
therein, and we continue to demand the free and unlim

at the ratio of 16 to 1, independent of all foreign nations
of the world.
Second The Hon. William J. Bryan still retains our
entire confidence and we demand his renomination in
Third We recognize the solemn fact that our gov
ernment cannot be both Republican and imperial.
Fourth We stand in the line with Washington, Jef
ferson, Jackson, Lincoln, Grant and other American
patriots, living and dead, and desire the perpetuity of our
Fifth We are radically'and unalterably opposed to
imperialism in the United States of America.
Sixth We are opposed to entangling alliances witii
foreign kingdoms and empires.
Seventli We commend the action of congress in de
claring that our war with Spain was for humanity and
not for conquest.
"Eighth We recognize the value and glorious
achievements of our gallant soldiers and sailors from
Bunker Hill to this very hour as being among the most
thrilling and glorious in the history of the world, but we
profoundly regret that the American soldiers are being
unlawfully used in the name of liberty to crush and de
stroy dawning Republicanism in the Orient, and we de

between England and the Republican administration,
whereby this nation may become involved in war with
Ninth We demand that the Cubans 'and Filipinos
not only be permitted but encouraged to establish inde

from the consent of the governed.
Tenth We denounce the Republican party for its as

shipping bill, which, if enacted into law, would fnnm-i-shackle
Eleventh We are in favor of maintaining an ef
Twelfth A large standing army in our republic is a
menace to liberty.
Thirteenth We favor the initiative and referendum
and thenassatre of the eitrht hour labor law. The most
rigid inspection of mines and workshops. The prohibition
of sweatshops and the abolition of the contract system of
Fourteenth We declare that all unlawful combina
tions of capital are the legitimate proofs of a gold stand
ard and other corrupt Republican legislation and favored
by the tarifT, and we demand that all articles, the price
of which are controlled by the trusts, be placed on the
free list. We denounce the attorney general of the
United States, appointed from the state of New Jersey,
the hotbed of trusts, for bis refusing to enforce the stat
utes of the United States against them, and we commend
the present attorney general of Ohio for his earnest effort
to enforce statutes of Ohio against such illegal combina
tions, and pledge the nominee of this convention for at
torney general to the enforcement of the statutes of tin's
state against them.
Fifteenth We demand the cessation of national
bonded debt-building to curse posterity."
Sixteenth We demand a return of rigid economy in
the administration of public affairs and a proper reduc
tion of all fees and salaries.
Seventeenth We demand a reduction of taxation and
a more equitable distribution of its burden.
Eighteenth We believe that honest political leaders
are necessary and respect of the people and parties. Po
litical bosses are to be detested and inimical to our form
of government. The Republican party in Ohio is now in
Nineteenth We favor such appropriations by the
legislature as may be necessary to ensure the success of
the centennial to be held in Toledo.
Twentieth We derdore the frequent and outrageous
exercises of lynch law in this and other states, especially
against our colored citizens.
Twenty-first We commend a constitutional amend
ment, providing for the election of a president and vice
president, and the United States senators, by a direct
vote of the people.
Twenty-second Toward securing theso kindred
blessings, we earnestly invite the co-operation of all pa
pearance and getting ready for their
winter's work and incidentally a win

are that this will be a season of quite
unusual social activity anil -vety at

Admiral Dewey's acceptance of the
offer of a home in Washington as a gift
from his countrymen gives assurance,
if any such assurance were needed, that
the national capital will be his per
manent home. The admiral told the
committee that he did not want an
elaborate mansion, but a quiet and
modest home, and the sooner he had it
the better it wonld suit him. He pre
ferred that it should be ready made and
ready furnished, so that he could just

begin the erection of a new building
for the department of jnstice, which
promises to rank in architectural merit
with other federal structures. The con
tract for the plans has juat been award
ed to George B. Post of New York, who
designed the Manufactures and Liberal
Arts building at the Chicago exposition
and tho St. Paul, the Union Trnst and
the Mills buildings in New York, be
sides many other notable structures
throughout the country The site se
lected for the new department of jus
tice building is the northeast corner of
Pennsylvania avenno and Madison
place. Facing it on the south side of
Pennsylvania avenue is the treasury
department building and on the west
side is Lafayette square, with the
btatue of Lafayette.
The land to be occupied has a front
iige of 187 feet on Pennsylvania avenue
and i:).r on Madison place. One of the
requirements in the competition for the
plans was that the design should be
classical. The structure is to be on tha
Greek order, an important feature be
ing the Ionic columns. It will be built
of white marble.
The building is to be of fireproof con
struction and will be four btories high.
The first floor will be occupied by the
court of claims, the library and rooms
for the court officials On the second

A GLEAM OF PLEASURH.
Along the noisy city vajs,
And in this rattling citj car.
On this the dreariest of dajs.
Perplexed with business fret and iart
When suddenly a joung, sweet face
Looked on my petulance and pain
And lent it something ol its grace
And charmed it into peace again.
The day was just as bleak without,
My neighbor just as cold within.
And truth wa3 just as full of doubt.
The world was just as full of bin.
But in the light of that loung smile
The wcrlJ srew pure, the heart grew warn
And sunshine g'eamed a little while
Across tne darkncs of the stoniu
1 did not care to ittek her nait.
I only said: "God bless thy life.
Thy sweet, )oung grace be still the same.
Or happy maid or happy wife."

The chief industry of Geneva Is the
manufacture of musical boxes. Thou
sands of men, women and children are
employed in the factories, one of which
was visited by a traveler who gives
some interesting particulars about his.
An attendant Invited him to take a
seat. He did so, and strains of delight
ful music came from the chair. He
hung his hat on a rack and put his
stick in the stand. Music came from
both rack and stand. He wrote his
name in the visitors' register, and on
dipping his pen into the ink music
burst forth from the inkstand.
The manager of the factory explain
ed the process of making musical
boxes, a business which requires pa
tience and nicety.
The different parts are made by men
who are experts iu those parts and
who do nothing else year lu aud year
The music is marked on the cylinder

years of apprenticeship. Auother man

which have been filed to a uniform
length. The comb, or set of teeth,
which strikes the pegs and makes the
sound Is arranged by a man who does
nothing else. The cylinder is then re
volved to see that every peg produces
a proper tone.
The most delicate work of all is the
revising of each peg. It Is done by a
workman who lias a good ear for mu

Common sense tells a woman that when
she's sick she needs a doctor.
Common sense tells a woman that in
disease the first question is not of man or
woman, but of recognized medical ability.
Common sense applied to advertisements
which invite women to "write to a woman
because she is a woman and understands
women, " will Show the women so appealed
to, that it's no use to write to any woman
about disease unless that woman is a
Common sense used in the reading of
advertisements will discover that no claim
is made in them to a physician's knowl
edge or diploma. And that is not because
the claim would be morally culpable as a
He, but because it would be legally pun
ishable as a fraud. The law permits you to
masquerade as a doctor in an advertise
ment, just so long as yon don't actually
claim to lie a doctor, or put M. D. after
your name. That's why the advertisement
is worded " write to a woman " instead of
write to a doctor.
Common sense has brought more than
half-a-million women, afflicted with some
form of female disease, to Dr. R. V. Pierce
as one of the most expert physicians in the
United Suites in the treatment of female
diseases. Dr. Pierce is a specialist. He
has given more than thirty years of active
practice to the treatment of female dis
eases. Dr. Pierce is not a "physician" by
courtesy. He is a physician regularly grad
uated, legally empowered to practice and
with thirty years of experience in the treat
ment of diseases of women, which he has
made his specialty.
The offer of free consultation by letter
made by Dr. Pierce is a real offer, an honest
offer. It is an offer backed by a medical
institution, with a world-wide reputation,
a staff of nearly a score of regularly grad
uated physicians, a practice which reaches
every state in the Union and a record of
more than half-a-million women treated
and ninety -eight out of evety hundred
