WINE vs. COFFEE.
A Test Case.
"A wine maker's wife, on whom I was
calling a year or two ago, urged me to
drink a large cup of very strong coffee
when I had declined to take a glass of
wine for the reason that the wine affected
me unpleasantly.' The coffee was so
strong that my head reeled and rolled for
two or three days, and 1 decided the wine
would have been the more temperate
drink, after all.
"I had been a moderate user of coffee,
but had been suffering from sick head?
aches for some time and was becoming
very suspicious that coffee was the cause
of them. After this experiment, the
drug power of coffee was made so plain
that I abandoned it altogether and had a?
long season of hot water drinking which
is not enjoyable, as you will admit.
"After awhile I was introduced to Pos?
tum Food Coffee, and it proved a joy and
promise of pleasure to come. It tasted so
much like coffee that I waited for some
of the evil effects to develop. They did not
come, so I drank it three times a day and
still continue. The habit spread from me
to the rest of the family. Even father, a
confirmed coffee drinker, eighty-four years
old, now drinks Postum with great relish,
and his health has been better the past
winter than for several years.
"On Christmas wo had a reunion of
several old-time friends and served Postum
instead of coffee. One of the ladies, who
holds an important educational position and
must care for her nerves, said: 'Give me
the smallest cup?I dare not drink coffee.'
She was told that It was not coffee, but
was 'Postum. After drinking a little of it
she Aid: ? never liked Postum before.
The way we made it, it was sp colorless
and flat, but this is delicious,' and she
passed up for the second cup.

directions as to the amount to use and

During Almost the Entire Session of
the Senate Yesterday.
NO DECISION WAS REACHED
The. Debate Was Largely on the Erec?
tion of a Government Plant,
The Pearson-Crawford Con?
test Before the House.
WASHINGTON, May 9.?^Practically the
entire session of the Senate to-day was
devoted to a discussion of armor plate,
the section of the naval appropriation bill
relating to armor and armanent being un?
der consideration. The debate largely
hinged on the proposition that the gov?
ernment should erect an armor plate
plant o? its own.
No action was taken on the proposition,
the bill going over until to-morrow.
Mr. Hale, of ?Maine, evidently referring
to the publication of yesterday's secret
session proceedings, said he left it to Mr.
Tillman whether it was ? wise or desirable
to proceed with the measure in secret ses?
Mr. Tillman replied that he was per?

information, although they did publish more

Mr. Vest: "I think the Senate would

At 1 o'clock the Senate resumed consid?
eration of the bill In open session. The
pending question was upon the committee ?>
amendment to the House bill with respect
to armor lor war vessels.
Mr. Tillman offered an amendment in
effect limiting the price to be paid for ar?
mor to $300 per ton, and if it could not be
procured for 'that price, authorizing the
Secretary of the Navy to construct a gov?
ernment armor plant at a cost of not ex?

ment plant for the manufacture of armor
was to be constructed."

the manufacturers would cost the Gov?
ernment $1?,000,???), while his proposed
price would cost but about JS.COO.COO. His
proposition was to build an armor plant
regardless of manufacturers' prices.
Mr. Tillman was- not convinced that
the new process armor was any better
than the old kind',. A nine-inch new
process plate had been easily penetrated,
?and who OOuld say /that a fourteen
inch plate would not suffer similarly?"
WIDL PIERCE ANYTHING.
Mr. Hale interrupted to state that the
only significance of recent experiments
was to show that the best projectiles
will pierce anything, but that the new
process armor has an impenetrability of
25 per cent, greater than any other. The
cap projectiles went through the nine
inch and even the eleven-inch plates as
though they Avere pine boards.
Mr. Hale presented a memorandum from
Rear-Admiral O'Neil, giving the latest
available information on the subject. The
memorandum stated in part:
"No armor that exists to-day, regardless
of its thickness or quality, c^n resist the
power of the modren gun at short range.
Therefore, the fact that armor can readily
be perforated at short range must not be
considered an indication that it is of in?

said he would support the proposition for
a government armor plate plant.
iMr. Chandler, of New Hampshire, who
is ex-Secretary of the Navy, said that if
the United States were to become a world
power and build ships for the next twenty
years, it would be far cheaper to make
armor at the government's own plant.

"VYlASHIiNGTON, May ?>.?The House to?
day entered upon the consideration of the
contested election case of Pearson vs.

son-Crawford case was against the sitting

ground thift Mr. Pearson's election was
pre\-ented by fraud, intimidation, bribery

allegations of the minority, pointing out that
the district is normally 'Democratic. The
debate to-day was on party lines.
Mr. Roberts, of Massachusetts, in charge
of the case, on behalf of the majority,
made a proposition to vote immediately
after the reading of the'journal to-morrow.
Mr. Miers, of Indiana; for the minority,
rejected the proposition, which, he de?
clared, indicated that the majority had al?
ready seen the handwriting on the wall.
He said four hours on a side was the least
he would accept. This, in turn, was re?
jected, and Mr. Roberts entered upon his
argument without any agreement having
been reached as to the time for closing the
Mr. Crawford, the sitting member, a
Democrat, had 23S plurality on the face

a true plurality for (Mr. Pearson of 31S.
In the course of his remarks, Mr.
Roberts denounced the constitutional
amendments and the. new election law
in North Carolina, which he said were
designated to eliminate the negro vote.
iMr. Miers, of Indiana, presented the
case of the minority. He called' atten?
tion to the fact that the district was
normally Democratic, and that the elec?
tion of 1S96 was conducted under an elec?
tion law passed by the Fusionista, which
gave the contestants' political friends
control of* the election' machinery.

be issued each week during the con?

There are several features of special
value connected with this -work that
deserve more than a passing notice. The
plan of issuing it weekly possesses the
merit of enabling the millions of our own
people who cannot cross the water to
actually visit the Exposition once a week
and observe it in its_. progress from be?
ginning to end, for the Insignificant sum
of ten cents.
This series also has the distinction of
official recognition, in the fact that it is

sition, and the bulk of the photographic
views are supp?ied by Marius Bar, the
official photographer of the government,
specially detailed for this work, who wiil

period of its active life. The rest of the
views will be furnished by the famous
Neurdien Brothers, the most eminent
landscape photographers of France, whose
art has brought them not only fame, but
a fortune of more than a million dollars.

The descriptive features are by Mr.

specially for this work, and will remain at

perfunctory foot-notes, of little or no
value, but they will be classically ex?
