GLORY ENOUGH FOR ALL.
The American army and navy m
whole are organizations worthy of the
pride and admiration of every Ameri
can citizen. The petty jealousies,
however, which exist in both branches
of the service, and whieh have result
ed in scandals likely to bring dis
credit on them abroad are something
which brings the blush of shame to
the cheek of every American. After
the campaign in Cuba resulting in the
surrender of the Spanish army there,
and which elicited great praise from
the military critics of other countries,
who watched the actions of the
Americans, came the uncalled for and
unfounded charge from the head of
the army in regard fo canned beef
and the resulting scandal which rob
bed the army of much of the honor
and glory which had been accorded
it. The sea battle between the
American and Spanish navies at San
tiago, in which the former achieved
the greatest victory ever recorded in
the annals of naval warfare, a victory
grand enough to reflect credit upon
every one connected with the Ameri
can navy, has been followed by the
Schley controversy, the result of the
court of inquiry being absolutely
fruitless, so far as the opinion of the
American people is concerned.
There are men in both the army and
navy yet who seem to desire to keep
these jealousies alive regardless of the
disrepute into which it brings these
branches of government service.
Since writing the above, the Phenix
(jazette comes to hand with a very
pertinent article on this question, in
which it says:
"The findings of the court of in
quiry in the case of Admiral Schley
have not materially changed public
sentiment in regard to that officer.
Admiral Dewey's opinion served
rather to strengthen the popular be
lief in Schley's ability and bravery in
spite of the report of the other mem
bers of the commission. A majority
of the American people believe that j
Schley is entitled to great credit for
the outcome of the battle of Santiago.
"But the matter has gone far
enough. It will do no good to con
tinue the controversy. Any further
vindication of the admiral is not
probable. The whole discussion has
been productive of trouble Sampson
nervously prostrated, officers contra
dicted by brother officers, charges
against the administration made and
denied, and general ill feeling among
those who took part in the great vic
tory, when there was glory enough
for all these are the results of the
controversy. Time will vindicate the
honor of those concerned in the bat
tle and further attempts to do so now
will only lead to more ill feeling."

"The report which Mr. John Stni -tou
prepares as statistician for ti e
copper companies is given in fti 1
in our market columns. It shou s
that for the month of Xovetulier. tl e
production of copper in the United
States, as estimated by those who
have the lest opportunity of obtain
ing the facts, was 21.728 long ton .
This quantity is less by 2,370 than
that reported for the month of Octo
l)er. and and less by IJUB tons than
iu Novemlssr of last year Tne n -reports
riven from time to time in ot r
news columns indicate that acoi -siderable
part of the large decren e
shown last month was in the But'e
mines, where work has been very
quiet for some time. Part of the los
was in the Ari7xua mines, especially
iu thf group around Jerome, an i
probably very little in the Lake Su
perior mines. These conditions, it
must be understood, are drawn from
our news correspondence, since the
official report gives no details of the
production of the reporting mines.
"For the eleven months ending
with November we find that tie
heavy drop in the output of lat
month lias reduced the United Staffs
production bestow that of 1900 by 1.
311 tons. This is not a large pe:
centage, the total for the cmrent year
beiiif 215.452 lonar tons. While our
mine- showed a small loss, the re
porting foreign mines including th'
Rio Tiuto. the Mansfeld and all th.
important European producers hav
hown this year a total output of 83.-
108 tons, or 1,21)0 tons more than 1
increise is very nearly
equal to the decreise on thi side.
"The most important change i
found in the exwrts of copper from
the United States, which continue!
light in November, and for the eleven
motithr. reached a total of only S0,19.r
tons, against 1 18.341 tons in 1900 and
103.364 tons in 1899. The decrease
this year was 6H.146 tonsas compared
with the extraordinary shipments of
last year: but only 23.165 tons from
those of 1899. Last year the exports
were 60.1 per cent of our total pro
duction, while this year they were
only '12.7 ier cent, dropping below
one-third of the total and showing
the smallest proportion reported foi
several years. The depression of
business abroad and the consequent
stop put to new electrical enterprises
in Europe have shown their full effect
in purchases of copper here.
"The present situation in copper
must be regarded as not only unpre
cedented, but as altogether uncertain,
and the oldest observers hesitate to
make any prediction as to the future.
There is no doubt that our own con
sumption continue very larjfe, but
there arc ma doubts as to whether
it will lie much increased by a lower
raujje of prices. That a further drop
in production may occur is very pos
sible, but lievoud this thee is really
little that can be said of the future
with any depree of confidence.
A Refinement of the S'ock Farm.
A New York man of wealth had a
butcher's party at his country house
the other day. Not that he invited
members of the Butchers' Union to
come and dine with him. but he turn
ed himself and his friends into mem
bers of the fraternity for the time be
ing. They had five days of sport
and iu those five days they killed
over five thousand heat! of game.
This game was not mountain lions
or grizzly bears; they are not killed
in droves that way, and besides, t!
labor might have proved too arduous.
Xo, it was mainly tame pheasants
aud rabbits bred for the purpose of
being killed by this gentleman and
his friends and herded together iu
such a way that the poorest shot in
the iarty could hardly have escaped
killing something. This was very
considerate of the hrwt. It showed
how anxious he was that none of his
friends should lie hurt in the regiou
of the feelings. On one day these
gentlemen killed more than a thous
and rabbits aud as many pheasants.
It is probable that they had to hire a
cart to go around after thcui and pick
up the game.
The plain American citizen, in read
ing this, is likely to wear I invstified
air and wonder where the fun comes
in. He can understand how a man
might like to start out on a frosty
morning and hunt a fox the ciafty
nil rascal over hill aud dale, partly
to execute vengeance for the deso
lated chicken coop. aud partly for the
amusement of chasing the wily old
sinner himself and matching his wits
against those of the fox. He can see
that there is somethiug exhilirating
about chasing a cougar, when the
hunter may at any moment become
the huntee, but he will lie blamed if
he sees where the fun of this perform
auee comes in. He would as soon go
out and do a hard day's work in his
poultry yard just liefore Thanksgiv
ing. It is to le hoped he will con
tinue iu this non-appreciative atti
tude. It is healthy aud would that
such health were contagious. -Ex.

Where Four States Meet.
The point where Utah, Colorado.
Arizona and New Mexico touch each
other is called the four corners. This
fact is not a strange one, but when
we come to find that this is the only
plan where four states or territories
join we find that this spot is iu some
ways a unique one. Not only is this
the only place in the United States
where such a junction occurs, but it
is the only one of its kind in the
world. This statement seems a
broad one, but a short study of the
maps of an atlas will show that it is
correct. Few tourists visit the place,
although :i monument erected by
government surveyors marks the
spot. Its distance from the railroad
and the difficulties attendant upon a
trip there are enough to deter all but
a few of the most hardy tourists from
visiting it. The "four corners" is

The jellyfish haserrown worse, writes
; an Atlantic City correspondrat of the
Last Sunday when he and his rlan
lnvadad the breakers he was treated
snore as a joke than anything else.
But he hat "tifiently made up hia
gelatinous mind to stay at Atlantic
City, and since last Sunday has float
ed around eer dav at hathinv' hour,
and brushed up against the multitude.
The other day, for some reason or
another, he developed a vicious tend
ency, did this jellied mass of float
ing inconsequence, and when he
brushed against one, like an illiterate
person might do, he left his mark.
A collection of little red dots was
what this memento appeared at first,
and aa can other days, it produced an
itching sensatian. But the effect was
not transient as it was on other durj.
It had further develmpments, as most
of tha boardwalk druggists can tes
tify. Arm, leg, face, as the case might be
(for ytpar jellyfish is not particular,
nd an angular face appeals to it quite
ti potently as a well-rounded arm)
began to swell. Heretofore the jelly-
fish had confined his attentions u pro
ducing an itching sensation. Now he
began a series of really swell experi
ments. At tke least estimate no lets than
100 persona sought relief in the board
walk drug stores for some allevia
tion of the swelling produced by
the sting of the jellyfish. One young
woman, a New Yorker, found that her
arm had swollen to such proportions
thst it was impossible for her to put
on her shirtwaist that hung in the
bathhouse. Witch hazel was sent for
and a half-hour's assiduous rubbing
with this remedy "brought the swell
ing down to such proportion that the
young woman could dress and go to her
Nor was her case an isolated one.
Nearly every bather who came in con
tact with a jellyfish that day found
that swelling speedily followed in tha
wake of the fish's visit.
The reason for this unusual perform
ance on the part of the flabby pro
tozoan is not fni-thcoming. Why his
ating on Sunday. Monday. Tuesday and
Wednesday should produceitching.and
on Thursday hould result in swell
ing is a nut too hard for old sea salts
or medical men to satisfactorily crack.
"Yer can't tell how them jellyfish
will act." was what an old fisherman
said, while a doctor took off his glasses,
polished them, adjusted them, and
then said gravely: "It'a the fem
inine jellyfish that always makes the
trouble, and no on not even a doe
tor can tell what a feminine will do,
or why she does it."
Which was only another wayt of say
ing what the fisherman sard.

HOW HELPLESS HUSBANDS
HIVE BECOME HELPFUL.
Never does a man feel so helpless as
when he looks upon the suffering of the
wife he loves and knows that he is
powerless to prevent it. And when, as
is often the case, he has exhausted every
means at his disposal in the vain effort
to restore his wife to health, his despair
almost equals her suffering. There are
husbands who have passed through this
experience and have found a way to be
helpful to their wives when physicians
had absolutely failed to cure, and been
even powerless to help the sufferer.
One such husband thus relates his ex
"I take pleasure in writing you to let
you kuow about your ' Favorite Prescrip
tion,' " says Mr. E. E. Fricke, of Peters
burg, Menard Co., Ills., Box 367. "My
wife had been sick nearly all her life,
and after trying everything I could think
of I made up my mmd to try ' Favorite
Prescription. ' I sent to Chicago and got
six bottles, which my wife took, a table
spoonful three times a day, until the
baby came. She felt better after taking
the first bottle, and when baby was born
he weighed nine and a half pounds.
To-day ne is six months old and weighs
twenty-two pounds. He is as good a
child as any one could wish. The doctor
says he is as healthy as any ' .'' could
be, and also the doctor says your 'Favor
ite Prescription ' was the cause of such a
healthy baby. I felt I owed you this
much for the good you did my wife and
for my own happiness."
HIS "BETTER HALF."
The reference to the wife as the
"better half" is made sometimes half
humorously. But in his heart every
man feels that the old phrase expresses
a fact. When the wife is sick the whole
fabric of home totters to its fall. When
the wife is confined to her bed the hus
band leads a half life, a life from which
the sunshine and laughter have been
taken away. It is not to be wondered
at therefore, that husbands expiess their
gratitude for the cures which follow the
use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription.
What a change from a sickly bed-ridden
wife, helpless and miserable, to a wife
who is once more able to "guide the
house" in health and happiness.
"My wife was afflicted with uterine
trouble for several years," writes Mr.
J. C. Day, of Little Britain, Lancaster
Co., Pa., "and in November, 189S, the
doctor said she had a mishap. He
treated her for about two months or so,
but there was but little improvement. I
wrote you after she had commenced to
take ' Favorite Prescription ' and yon
told us to get ' Golden Medical Discov
ery ' also. She took six or seven bottles

Women who are suffer
ing from diseases of long
standing are iuvited to con
sult Dr. Pierce, by letter,
free. All letters are pri
vately read and privately
answered, and the written
confidences of women are treated with
the same strict professional privacy ob

R Y. Address Dr. R. V. Pierce, Bui-
iaio, m. 1 .
This offer of free consultation by letter
is not to be classed with the spurious
offers of "free medical advice" made by
those who having neither profession.il
training nor experience are medically
and legally unqualified to give the ad
vice they offer. Although it takes more
than a diploma to make a good physi
cian yet the medical diploma is essen
tial as witnessing to professional study
and training. It is well for women to
examine into offers of "free meuical
advice," and to ascertain whether the
offer is made by those competent pro
fessionally and legally to give medical
advice. Any one can offer "medical
advice" but such advice from one who
is not medically educated and qualified
is not only worthless but dangerous.
In a little over thirty years Dr. Pierce,
chief consulting physician to the Inva
lids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, Buf
falo, N. Y., assisted by his staff of nearly
a score of physicians, has treated and
cured hundreds of thousands of weak
and sick women. Write therefore with
out fee as without fear to Dr. R. V.
Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y.
The effort of some dealers to sell a
substitute for "Favorite Prescription" as
"just as good" is due to the fact that
less meritorious preparations pay a little
more protit. Insist on having the medi
cine which makes weak women strong
and sick women well.
