Tlie grounds in mieetlon are worth

The following is an abstract of a note

cause Of the interview with the min?
ister. Slates that Minister deLome
had presented his resignation and it
has been accepted before the presenta?
tion of the matter by Minister Wood
ford. That the Spanish ministry, in
accepting the resignation of a func?
tionary Whose services they have been
utilizing and valuing up to thai lime,
leaves it perfectly well established
that they do not share, or. rather, on
the contrary, disavow, the criticisms
tending to offend or censure the chief

desirability of negotiations of com?
mercial relations, if even for effect,
and Importance of using a representa?

Dupunr deLoriie's letter, the govern?
ment expresses concern that in tiie
light of its conduct long after the
writing of the letter, and in view of
the unanswerable testimony of slmul- i
taneous -and subsequent facts, ahv
doubt should exi.-i that tlie Spanish

Not Take Proper Advice !
A dramatic story is told of a young man
In'Chicago who believed ho had heart dis?
ease, lie abstained from exercise and lie
avoided excitement. He dosed himself per?
sistently und imagined that only by leaning
an invalid's life could he hope lo keep death
at arm's length. One day be suddenly met
a woman who bad been associated with a
discreditable chapter in his Iiist?ry.
"My (bull my heart!" cried the young
man, and lie fell at her feet stone dead.
An autopsy showed that Iiis heart was
absolutely sound. It was the opinion of
the physicians that he might have lived to
a ripo old age if lie had taken the precau?
tion to consult a competent specialist.
The time when a physician was laughed
at for devoting himself lo one bl anch of Iiis
profession is past. So broad is the Held of
medical knowledge that m> one man can
hope to cultivate it all. The seven great
men whose portraits accompany this article
have earned tin; undying gratitude of the
world by their work as specialists.
Notice that, the frame of the pictures is a

it is considered as the price of a complete
