PRESERVE THE FORESTS.
In reviewing a book by Johu Muir
on the question of preserving the for
ests, an exchange has the followin-'.
which is right to the point and well
"Throughout the book there is the
smack of warm fellowship with the
wild, free life of the open air on
mountain or mesa, on cliff and can
yon fellowship with tree and beast
and bird and vagrant man. There is
everywhere, too, the atmosphere of a
fine fragrant faith that God is lehind
the veil of events, asking only man's
co-operation to make the world a
place of refreshment, light and peace.
"The book at bottom is a passion
ate appeal for the preservation of our
disappearing forests. Surely, the
safeguarding of our woodlands should
be a near and dear work to every lovei
of beauty and use, to every lover of
his country and h's kind. The un
ceasing, illimitable, foolish and blas
phemous destruction of our forests
by fire-scattering campers, by vandal
lumberman, by all-devouring sheep,
threatens barrenness, drought and
hunger to highland and lowland in
the years that are coming. As Muir
so faithfully and tenderly pleads, it
is high time that the remaining beau
ty and worth of the woods belonging
to all should be guarded aud admin
istered for the good of all.
"John Muir has borne convincing
witness. His appeal to save the trees
that makes the fountains should be
multiplied by press and people, until
it reaches up to the men who make
the laws and put them into force
until the greed centuries of our for
ests are forever secured against the
blind follies, the sordid caprices of
ignorant and selfish men."
MUST BE VACCINATED.
All the telephone girls in San
Francisco must be vaccinated. Such
is the order issued by General Mana
ger Louis Glass, of the Pacific States
Telephone Company, after a consul
tation with the health authorities.
There are 700 of them, and they will
be treated at the rate of 100 per day.
The general managers of all the roads
entering Chicago have also decided
that every employee of their roads
entering Chicago must be vaccinated
or lose their jobs. The decision was
reached last Friday and the em
ployees were given a week to comply
with the order. This applies to all
the employees from the president to
the smallest messenger boy. The
order is meant to stop the spread of
smallpox which is raging in the north
west and along the Mississippi valley.
The health department has arranged
also that every car coming into that
city must be fumigated and left fullj
MX hours before being used again.

With such a plant wonderful progress

Parties with an abundance of capital

In spite of the sombre colors with

Many papers do not see the value
of the Hoar resolution providing for
the presidential succession, in the
light of the act of congress in 1886
which was supposed to have settled
the question. The Hoar resolution
provides for the contingency of the
removal of the president-elect, while
the former act had reference only to
the succession while the president
was actually in office.
Speaking of Aguinaldo, Governor
Taft of the Philippine islands savs

The president very wisely coincides

and the country. The great mass of
the American people are aud have
been willing to accord Admiral Schley
all honor for the part he took in the
Santiago sea fight. Schley's applica
tion for a hearing was a mistake to
start iu with, as a dozen hearings
could not change the mind of the
public on the question, neither could
it change the facts in the case. The
bearing brought out some facts, or
rather, emphasized some things con
nected with the fight that did not add
anything to Schley's reputation.
H. B. Ferguson of the New Mexico
statehood committee has returned to
Albuquerque, aud in an interview
with the Citizen of that place said:
" hile my personal opiniou, from a
contact with many personal acquain
tances in both the senate and house
of representatives in Washington, is
that we will not get statehood at this
time, I ought to state that Delegate
Rodey differs front me and has
strong hopes that he will get state
hood. I heard many compliments
given Mr. Rodey for the earnest and
able fight he has made for statehood.
I know personally, also, he did good
work for the military post at Albu
querque; but I think the main reason
why we will not get in as a state is
political, bjBBHBB the eastern influ
euees now controlling this govern
ment are afraid of the growing power
of the west, and statehood for New
Mexico. Arizona and Oklahoma would
vastly increase the ower of the west
in the United States senate and they
fear that the result would be to break
the hold of the east on the govern
ment of this great country. That's
why I believe we will not get state
hood this congress, nor perhaps for
several years to come."

The dignity of the United States
senate was pretty badly shaken up
on Saturday by a pugilistic encounter
between South Carolina's two sena

fame, "pitched" into his colleague,
McLaurin by alleging that the latter
voted for the Paris treaty as an ex
change for patronage in the distribu
tion of offices from his state. Mc
Laurin denounced the statement as a
"willful, malicious and delilierate lie."
Then the fuu commenced. Tillman
sprang across the seats and struck
McLaurin in the face, when the lat
ter countered by a "smash" on the
nose, cnusing the blood to flow freely.
The two men theu clinched and pum
meled each oi her for a few minutes
before they could be separated. In the
good old times this would have meant
a duel. Both senators were adjudged
guilty of contempt by the senate iu

The Art of Faking.
Although modern and comprehen

offsprings of disreputable philology
have refused their benediction to
"faking," and hold it still to be slang,
in all its uses, the time is coming
when the wonl will break into good
society. The wonder is that a prac
tice, craft, art or mystery, as you
choose to call it. which is as ancient
as the human race, should not have
acquired a verbal symlxil acceptable
to good usage.
It is well enough to prate about the
beauties of absolute truth aud sincer
ity, but there is no successful merit
without a little "faking." Aud fak
ing without merit will prosper, where
merit without faking will starve. Bar

myth ; we are so familiar with adver
tising methods we grow to be skepti
cal and always take such statements,
as well as all other advertising, with
the proverbial "grain of salt" but. as
before stated, being near the city of
Lynn, Mass., I thought I would in
vestigate a little in order to satisfy
my curiosity, and I must say I was
surprised at what I found.
To begin with I had no idea that
the Lydia E. Tiukham establishment
was anything like the immense size
that it is, and when the street car
stopped iu front of a great collection
of buildings and the conductor told
me it was the Lydia E. Pinkham La
boratory, I should have been s".re he
had made a mistake had it not been
for a small sign which is on one of
the original buildings.
Upon entering the office I was re
ceived by a very courteous lady and
was very much impressed by the fact
that all the occupants of the room
were women and although my so
journ in the buildings covered some
thing more than au hour visiting the
entire place and private office, I saw
nothing but women, and was also
pleased to learn that no man ever had
access to these rooms. I was satis
fied that their claims that this is
strictly a woman's institution were al
After stating the purpose of my
visit I was introduced to Mrs. Pink
ham who turned me over to a head
assistant with instructions that I was
to be shown everything iu and about
the laboratory, and particularly asked
me to visit the "private letter depart
ment,' which I did. This is the de
partment in which is received hun
dreds of thousands of letters from
ailing women, in which every letter
is opened, carefully considered
by competent persons under Mrs.
Pinkham's guidance and carefully
and accurately auswered by women
only so particular is Mrs. Pinkham
about having even a suspicion of
these letters going through a busi
ness office where men are allowed to
frequent that she will not allow a
typewriter to be used and every letter
that goes out of this office is written
by hand by women. I was also
shown positive evideuce, which clear
ly satisfied me on the point that no
letters are published unless the
writer's special permission is first ob
tained. To say that all this was a revela
tion is putting it mildly, and when I
was shown the great cabinet of files
that contains thousands upon thou
sands of letters, then, and only then,
did I begin to realize the magnitude
of Mrs. Pinkham's work. Just think
of it, every one of these letters had
been answered as carefully as the
must coni'ietent knowledge could dic
tate, ami not one cent has ever been
charged for advice. I saw where
more than one million such letter
were filed, aud I began to feel that
this one woman was doing more good
among the sick women of America
than any combination of men and
women that 1 ever heard ot. 1 came

THE NEW WELLINGTON.
A Handsome and Up to Date Resort to
Open Its Doors This Evening.
About six or seven weeks ago J. E
McCoy arrived in Prescott in search
of a location for a large and up to
date sporting establishment. He had
traveled through Washington, Ore
gon, Texas and New Mexico looking
after a place that suited his fancy for
such a location, but had not found it
until he arrived in Prescott, when he
at once made up his mind that this
was the place he was looking for.
The next thing was a building that
was suitable, and this question was
finally settled by taking a ten-years'
lease on the two-story brick owned by
Mrs. Jennie Jackson1 on Montezuma
street. The building was not large
enough and a force of carpenters,
masons, paperhangers. painters, etc..
was put to work extending the build
ing fifty feet in length and entirely
remodeling the interior. This small
army of workmen have been at it like
beavers ever since, and tonight the
place will be thrown open for business
under the name of the Wellington.
The interior has been fixed uy very
handsomely and conveniently. A
handsome mahogpny bar, large
enough for six men to work behind,
with a beautiful back bar gorgeously
carved and decorated with electrical
fixtures and three costly French plate
mirrors, adorns the main bar room.
There is in addition a largejcigar case
well filled with the best brand of
cigars on the market. Back of the
cigar case is a circular wall case
filled with bottled liquor of the beat
foreign and domestic brands.
The private office is in the front of
the building while a public office has
been provided for the use of any one
desiring to write a letter or enjoy a
quiet hour reading the leading papers
and magazines of the daj.
The main room is ninety by twenty
five feet in front of the elevated stage,
which is ten by seventeen feet, where
excellent musicians will be employed
to furnish sweet music at all times.
All the regular games will lie provid
ed and conducted, Mr. McCoy says,
absolutely on the square.
Back of the stage are four private
rooms which have been fitted up i n
Under the stage is a large wine
cellar where thousands of dollars
worth of liquors are stored.
The entire furnishings and finish
ing of the interior are in harmony
the woodwork being in cherry while
the wall paper is ofa rich red figure,
making a pleasant and cheerful ef
fest. The Messrs McCoy are both thor
oughly acquainted with every detail
of their business, have unlimited cap
ital at their command and propose to
conduct their place in a tirst class
manner in every respect and have
put in a line of wines, liquois and
cigars that have never been excelled
in Arizona. They are very pleasant
gentlemen and will no doubt make a
complete success of the new enter
prise. Patriotic Exercises.
Thepupils of the public schools in
Miss Helen Strange 's and Miss Car
lie Edwards' rooms united yesterday
in Washington exercises. The exer
cises were held in Miss Strange's
room, which was artistically and pa
triotically decorated for the occasion.
The exercises consisted of songs and
recitations by the pupils, and were
very interesting throughout, reflect
ing credit alike on the teachers and
pupils. Quite a number of visitors
were present who expressed great
pleasure at the performance of the
little ones. Exercises of this nature
are calculated to inspire the youth at
an early age with a feeling of patriot
ism which will abide with them as
long as they live.

Played Before the Empress
The German Emperor, not long ago,
commanded that a special musical
and dramatic entertainment be giv
en at the Royol Opera House in Ber
lin with the most eminent talent iu
Germany participating. A Tast .md
brilliant audience assembled. The
Emperor, owining to illness, was ab
sent, but the Empress, the Royal
family and court were there, together
with the most notable personages of
the capital. On the programme,
placed between two of Germany's
most renowned singers stood the
name of a new star, the violinist who
but three weeks before had made so
successful a debut as to set Berlin
talking. "'A prize pupil of Dr. Joa
chim, the director of the Royal School
of Music," it was whispered in the
audience, "and reports of ber talent
have reached the court."
The artist proved to be a voting
girl in her teens who came forward
clad in white; modest, timorous yet of
rare sweetness and charm of manner.
The hush of expectancy settled over
the great opera house. The little
maiden in white grasped her violin.
and soon the strains of beautiful mu
sic poured forth touching the hearts
of the immense throng with the mag
IB power of genius. Ihesolo ended.
there followed such a scene of entliu
siasm.such a storm of applause as all
present will long remcinlier. The
young violinist with one step liecame

ning will never forget the triumph,

in many lands have made her re

New Engine Valve.
Sensational claims have been made
in the press in the past few days iu
respect to an invention of a new valve
mechanism of locomotives, which has
been tried on the Great Northern
nitway. It is asserted that it will re
duce coal consumption 40 per cent,
aud that the locomotive thus filled at ;
140 pounds of steam will do more
work than an ordinary one with 210
pounds. It may be said in this con
nection that another invention which
is really epoch making, was recently
perfected, and will soon be an
nounceed. It has been tested by the
highest authorities, who affirm it will
revolutionize the motive power of the
world. It cannot yet be described,
but it comes from Germany.
Has Certain Advantages
Over The Milder Moral
Moral suasion, the appeal to the ra
tional nature of man. is doubtless very
good thing. But it will not compare
with immoral suasion for inducing swift
ness of thought or promptness of action.
The burglar surprised in his raid and
requested to "please go away" will

his going. The pistol, with its six solid
arguments, is a wonderful persuader, and
In the line of immoral suasion cannot be
It is a reflection on man's reason that
he often refuses to do what common
aense dictates, until he is forced to do
it. Common sense tells a man that he
cannot live irregularly and keep his
health. He is warned and admonished
time and again that hasty eating and
irregular meals result in diseases of the
stomach and other organs of digestion
and nutrition. But because Nature does
not directly threaten his life as the pistol
does he goes right along until he is
obliged to reform because disease forces
him to do so.
It is only when all her warnings have
been unheeded that Nature no longer
says "You should not" but "You shall
not." This is practically what happens
when the lover of high living has to give
up dainty dishes, sweets and condiments
and come down to a diet of oatmeal or
tea and toast.
There are thousands of dyspeptics
whose condition shuts them out from all
the pleasures of the table. There are
thousands of others who are on the high
road to a like condition, unheeding the
warnings of the protesting stomach.

woman who suffers from dyspepsia can
be almost certainly cured by the use of
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery.
