During "WMei. Doctor
HcGoy Extends tlie
One Week's Treatment in the Mild
August Weather as Good as a
Month of the Trying Weather
of Fall, Winter and Spring.
There Is but one month more of sum
mer, but one month moic of the 53 late.
The mild bummer -weather, the weather
whloh so helps the doctor lu the cure of
deafness and all diseases or a Catarrhal
nature, is at its best during the coming
mouth. So theie arc thiee great reasons
why those needing Doctor McCoy's serv
ices should make no delay.
FIRST, his fee Is now lower than it
ever will be again. He ex
tends to all the 3 rate until
the 1st of September. After
that date all iiiu&c pay his
. regular fee.
6EGOND, one -week's tieatment duiing
August does as much good,
ordinarily, as a month's treat
ment during thechangeableaud
severe weather of fall, -winter
111 RD, at this fccahoa, when even the
power of the skill of the if aster
Is doubled through Nature'said,
Doctor McCoy can sec and care
for twice as many patients as
he can during thesevere months
of the year, consequently he
can nov, better than at any
other time, afford to extend
tne 53 rate to all.
He wishes to make it perfectly plain
to all that he cannot for any reahon ex
tend this opportunity of the low rate be
yond the lht of September, and he makes
an earnest request that all desiring to
take advantage of litis offer do so at
once in order that they may have the
benefit of the mild August days, and
also that there may be no crowding or
conruslon during the final days of the
month, with the consequent disappoint
ment of those who failed to see the
doctor: for on the 1st day of September
thib orfer will be finally withdrawn, and
never mind what the plea, it will not be
extended to any patient whime name 1b
not enrolled before that date.

The "War Department has just made
public the report of Capt. George B. Davis,
U. S. A., in relation to the distribution
of relief for the recent flood sufferers
along the Mississippi. The report shows
that the Government gave 565.1G6 rations
for people, and 37,057 rations for stock,
at a total cost of $29,038.07. the cost of
d single ration per man being $0.032GS,
and for an animal ?0.041G8.
Many interesting facts are embodied in
Capt. Davis report. He says: "While In
a letter of Instructions, dated Washiugtou.
D. C, April 8, 1S97, authority was given
me to purchase the components of the
Army ration and such other articles of
rood as might be necessary, I thought,
after consultation with the Memphis re
lief committee, that it would be advisable
to confine purchases to the plantation ra
tion, which was composed of corn meul.
pork and molasses. 1 then determined the
quantities that the laborers ordinurlly re-
ceived, and the ration was established as
pounds corn meal, 3 pounds
pork, and 1-2 pint molasses, where there
were children, per Week. In the Case of
children, the molasses would, in a measure,
take the place of tl.-O pork.
"The following Is a biief description of
a relief district with the distributing points:
The territory between th2 Mississippi and
St. Franci3 rivers was known as the St.
Francis River district, with issuing points
at Wyanokc Hcanlon's, Blue Point, Peter's
Landing, Askew, Phillips' Bayou, Murinnna,
Itaggio City, Cut Off, Ashworth and Madi
son. The territory from Wyanoke to
.askew was so completely -submerged Mint
it was necessary to obtain United States
engineer barges and anchor them at these
points. 1 employed men to live on the
baiges and supervise tlie distribution of
supplies, and fouud the saving by this
method to be gic.it.
"On April 10, Major Sanger applied for
a boat to enable him to cairy out his
orders. 1 considered th2 rate, $1 50 a day,
to be exorbitant, but on Investigation
found it reasonable, as tlie risk wan great,
tlie insurance being vitiated the moment
thesteamer left the channel. In later trips
tlie rate was 125 per day, the reduction
being due to the fact that the steamer
did not run at night."
The Memphis ndlef committee's work Is
commended in the report. "The commit
tee," it says, "was composed of some of
the be&t and most reliable business men in
town. Their sole object seemed to Le to
relieve the destitute. In many cases the
heads of firms permitted the men under
them to devote their whole time to the re
lief work. The question of politics never
entered the heads of the committee. Camp
Congo was established outside tlie city
limits, and refugees were received and
cared for there, and the committee con
tinued to pay for work done there until
the camp was broken up.
"The people of Helena took care of their
own refugees for. some tune ac a cuuiieMuif
lished near the city. Supplies were sent
to Helena, and some of the planters tried
to obtiUn supplies on tlie ground that they
would not bo able to make a crop, butic
was found that they were really trying
to get 'their share.
"The governor's agent, Mr J. W. Cutrer,
reported that two-thirds of the people of
Coahoma county, Miss., were destitute, but
our Investigation found only one-tenth,
whom we relieved.
"In sending supplies to points on the
Yazoo and Mississippi Valley Railroad some
little trouble was had. The railroads, as
boon as they found that the Government
was sending supplies, began to charge
freight. I requested the agent to send
the billb to me and the freight should be
prepaid. The Yazoo and Mississippi Val
ley Railroad did neither, although theageut
had told me that he would do so.
"The last supplies were sent north of
Memphis April 23. The land had begun
to appear and It was possible to plant.
"OnthewaytoVick&burg weiuvcstl gated
carefully the situation on both banks of
the Mississippi and concluded that south
of Greenville the situation had been ex
aggerated. "No organization had been made at
Natchez. People not deserving of aid had
been given assistance and the country
was rapidly approaching a condition or
demoralization. All the evils or a lack
of systematic distribution were pres
ent. In less than a week the district was
organized and reasonable regulations es
tablished by which the deserving could
"The suffering along the Yazoo and
Sunflower Rivers was perhaps greater
than at any other point, on account or
there being so many small farmers. Lit
tle aid was needed from Natchez to the
mouth of the Iced River, the planters, as
a rule, caring for their own people.
"It is due to First Lieut. E. C. Carna
han, Fifth Infantry, and First Lieut. E.
T. Cole, Sixth Infantry, to say that no
officers could have given more cheerful
nnd earnest co-operation. They worked
with untiring energy for the interests
of the overflowed people, the Government
and the honor of the Army."
FINED THE MOTHER-IN-LAW.
Mrs. Martin Smith Punished for As
saulting a Son-lii-La-w.
Thecase ot Frederick Weishaupt, charged
with assaJlt upon his moUier-in-law, Mrs.
Martin Smith, came up before Judge Mills
In the police court yesterday morning. All
parties concerned live on a canal boat. The
testimony adduced tended to show that
Mrb. Smith was the causa ot all the trouble.
She was very much intoxicated last night
and entered Into a quarrel with Weishaupt,
during which she became so enraged that
she endeavored to secure possession of a
butter knife, with the Intention of stab
bing the Eon-in-law.
The wife, however, although in delicate
health, endeavored to prevent her mother
from obtaining the weapon, whereupon
the enraged woman turned upon tho daugh
ter, and despite her delicate condition,
struck hei repeatedly upon the, back and
stomach. This Inhuman action aroused
the anger ot Weishaupt, who, fearing for
hl6 wife's safety, struck Mrs. Smith in the
face, knocking her over a chair.
The result of theblowwas a badlyswelhjd
eye, with which the complainant appeared
in the court. After hearing the testimony
of all bands concerned, Judge Mills dis
missed the charge against "Weishaupt, but

Information has bren received at the
Treasury Department to the errect time
the Canadian government Is Imposing an
unusually heavy tax on goods sent to
the Klondike region. It Is said that the
duty on all artt les is 15 cents a pound.
The severity of the tax. is doubted by
Ticasury officials, but they are Inquiring
Into the facts, and if It is learned that
an unusually high ta'c is being Imposed, ar
rangements will at once be made for a
retaliation, which will be felt severely by
the Canadian government.
Theie are several ways in which this
can be done without permission of Con

sub-port of entry at D yea, recently created
by Secretary Gaga to please tlie Cannd'an

severe retaliation the Treasury officials
can impose Is to restrict or to wholly re

to resort to such severe measures.

The stock market yesterday was "a
repetition 01 Wednesday, and both or thet.;
days -Here very nearly approaching to
tecord d.iys as f.ir as the amount of stocks

thf usaud hiiarts in the five-hour trading
day on thesMok. exchange is a tremendous
lot, of bus.ntss. It means to the ex
change "0.u0,0(f0 woith of AttSunKe- On
both Wednesday and ye?te'rday this amount
was reached This indicates very clearly
that tlie public is very largely in the pres
ent znaikct, The public Is all buying, too.
Theie is a fever of buying. It Is as if
ceiybody with any gambling Instinec
whatever were Investing every cent he
could reach in the stock market. This

-very feebly iiul'cates the amount or stock

The bucket shops all oer the country
are trading treniendout-ly also.' One can
not predict where tW 'boom will end.
It seems now to a cusual observer that
the block market will sec even much
higher prices th.in those at present, which
are really not phenomenal ai) all com
pared with those ol other years. With

a reaction must come even If we are

that if all, and tliere will be a lot of

The market opened strong and excited
yeste-day motnlng. London continues to
sell American stocks. Prices there were
lower, and about 20,000 shares of vari
ous stocks were sold by foreign representa
tives. This, howevei, produced almost no
impression whatever on the local market,
tne orrerings rroin London and from real
izing being readily absorbed. The rirbt
hour's dealings amounted to the aston
ishing total of 170,000 shares, or a very
good day's business In such times as
those or three or Tour months ago. The
news or the day was generally ra-orable,
though wheat, it is true, sold down arter
a strong opening. The spring wheat har
vest in the KbitbwcsG has .begun under fa
vor.ible conditions, and tlie ear move
ment on "Western nnd Southern ronds sub

There seems to be no news which would
account reasonably for the advance In
Manhattan yesterday. Probably manipula

Pow, Jones &. Co. say of Tobacco:
"People who are buying Tobacco say
that there never was any reason why the
3tock should have sold In the seventies,
except that bad judgment on the part of
certain speculative directors ,causod a
partial boycott of the stock in conserva
tive commission housos. The earnings of
the property, even at the height of the
Tobacco war, were largely In excess of the
dividends paid, and there never was any
reason why the dividend should have been
passed, unless it could be excused on the
ground that money on hand might be need
ed in the fight. The Tobacco war is over,
and the Tobacco company, like the Sugar
company, is making more money than at
any time in its history.- It never lost its
enormous cigarette traffic, and its plug
tobacco trade now pays.- They think that

Four yt-ars ago, August 5tt 1893, tho
first number of Dun's Eevlow was issued,
with failures ia that mouth amounting to
over SOcr.oqo.OOO, while in the month Just
dosed fallurea have been only $7,117.7:27,
the smallest in any month since 1S92.
Extended review of the events during the
past four years, given this week, consti
tutes a more complete chapter of finan
cial history jjhan has ever been published
for a similar period. Tho statement of
failures by classes for July and for forty
six months, shows that in manufacturing
failures have been smaller than in any
other month of the entire period, in trad
ing smaller than fn any mouth except
one, and in many branches of each de
partment smaller than in most months or
which records exist.
Dun's Review Is gratified to find a sub
stantial hosts for the improvement which
has been recorded Hince early this year.
Last month was the first for four yean
lu which tho volume of business reported
by clearing houfces was larger than in
the same month of 1802. This Is partly
due to a large yield of wheat and good
prices, though the crop Is probably not
large nor are prices thus far as high
as ia 1892. Liquidation of a powerful
combination In wheat brought a icactlon
of 3 cents Thursday, but a gain of 1 1-2
cents occurrred the day following, Arter

seem each day more likely to end in a
pcrn-aiient settlement beneficial to both
parlies. While consumption does not yet
equal the capacity or the works in opera

averugs slightly lower, the situation l.s
altogether more hopeful.
llio toUime of business measured by
actual payments- through clearing houses

promise with the returns for July to put

Tho feolinsr of confidence that general
business h to Improve In the early autumn
is marked at these cities. On the Paciric

California being heavy wheat shipments

active demand for supplies for Alaska
and tlie Northwest Territory.
Tho movement or general merchandise
throughout the country is unquestionably
larger tiian last week. The woolen indus

Chicago, Aug. 6. "Wheat opened at an
advance of 1 l-2al 5-8 over last night's
close, the demand coming mostly from the
short interest, was followed by a break
of this great 5.75 suit sale, gentlemen after closing
time tonight it will be a thing of the past. It will
go down into the store's history as one of the greatest
clothing sales Hechts have ever held. Heed this last note
of warning and get in some time today. The suits in
this sale are Hamburger's finest creations made to sell for
$10, $12-50 and 15 and you get the choice of 'em all for
We're disposing of the men's Crash

For Instance, you may take your

Here's your chance, mothers,
To do some monej' saving such as you've never done before.
The boys' stock is very much broken in sizes, and that
makes a big opportunity, for we've cut the prices of nearly
everything down to cost and below.

of 1 1-2 cents, from which there was a
rally ot 1 3-8 on the strength or an
active shipping demand and reported bet
ter cables. The majority ot the local
traders are bearish and inclined to operate
00 thr.r fctde. The big lines ot long wheat
sold cut early in the week, have not been
replaced, the sellers looking for a lower
i'iurket on which to buy. No. 1 northern
wheat sold here at 4 3-4 over September;
No. 2 red at 4 1-2 over; No. 2 spring sold
at 2 1-4 premium. Sales here for export
were In the neighborhood of 200,000
bushels. The fact that foreign markets
advanced ia the. face of decline here Is
regarded as additional eviednce of the
ttrength of the situation.
Corn was lower, with big realizing on
purchases made early In the week; one
lot ot 1,000,000 coming on the market.

A ItPinnilvUblo Care of Chronic
"In 1SC2, when I served my country
as a private in Company A, One-hundred
uud sixty-seventh Pennsylvania Volunteers,
I contracted chronic diarrhoea. It has
given me a great deal of trouble ever
since- I have tried a dozen different
medicines and several prominent doctors
without any permanent relief. Not long
ago, a friend sent me a sample bottle
of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy, and after that I bought
and took a 50-cent bottle; and now I
can say that I am entirely cured. I
cannot be thankful enough to you for
this great remedy, and recommend it to
all suffering veterans. If in doubt, write
me. Yours gratefully, Henry Steinberger.
