do valiant deeds and
impossibilities. What will not a man
do to break out of
the prison cell of a
tyrant? But the
same man, imprisoned in the charnel-house
of ill-health will but too often idly, and
without an effort, await the approach of
death. There is but one way to meet and
overcome the deadly disease, consumption.
It is to grasp the best weapon at hand and
valiantly beat down the barriers of disease.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is
the best and only sure weapon to use in bat
tling with consumption. It cures oS per
cent, of all cases. It purifies and builds up
the blood, and drives out the disease germs.
The lungs cannot long remain diseased that
are constantly renewed by rich, red, arterial
blood of the best quality. When the lungs
are supplied with pure blood, the germs of
consumption are soon rendered harmless.
The "Discovery" also -contains elements
that steady and strengthen the nerves, and
it is the best medicine for those suffering
from loss of sleep, brain fag and overwork.
Thousands have testified to the great bene
fits received from this wonderful medicine.
Miss Mary Whitman, of East Dickinson,
Franklin Co., N. Y., writes: "For nearly ten
months X have had a bad cough, and instead ot
getting better, it grew worse, uutil I was ad
vised By a friend to try Dr. Pierce's Golden Med
ical Discovery. I hesitated at first, for it seemed
to me nothing would give relief only death. My
parents were auxious about me, aud I was said
to have consumption. I tried Vour medicines,
and before I had taken many doses there was a
treat change. Wfiea the second bottle was
empty I am thankful to say J had no cough and
was a great deal stronger Many thauks to the
'Discoverer of such a medicine."

.McKENNA SEES McKINLEY".
Consults, the President on the "3oc
tluu 22" Questitn.
Attorney Guneral McKcnna made two
calls on the President yesterday, one
lu the morning and one at 3 o'clock. It
is suggested that these culls possibly may
have lmd romc connection with his de
layed decision on "section 22." This
opinion with regard to "section 22" ot
the tariff bill, relating to discriminating
duties against foreign ships and railroads,
has been held up from day to day for
nearly a week now, though it has been
promised to the newspaper men every
day. It la understood, however, that It
is sure to see tlie light today.
One quite generally accepted theory with
regard to this deluy Is that Attorney
General McKcnna has changed his mind ut
least oe.ce since he began the writing ot
the opinion. The general feoling at pres
ent Is i bar the opinion will be averse to the
broader on s-ruction of the section, and la
this way favorable totho Canadian Pacific,

To tho Editor of The Times:
Why is it that two corporations (the
Capital Traction Company aud the Metro
politan Compnnv ) are allowed to drive
their "hurry-up wagons'' through our
streets at such a pace? The lives of our
citizens are endangered, to say nothing
ot the menacp to their property. High
strung horses are frightened, and I have
seen several narrow escapes from erious
accidents to blcvcle riders aud ladies
diiving, who have had difficulty in
getting out of the way ot these reck!e.s
drivers In two or three instances, teams
standing quietly at the curb liuve been
started otf by the clanging ot the gong
and the clattering hooffc. Is there any
special law authorizing these corporations
to maintain audi a nuisance? How quickly
a private Individual would be hauled up
and fined wero he to attempt such a
thing, uo matter how urgsnt his busiues.
