It Is that imimrity in the Wood, which, ac
cumulating in tlio glunds of tlie neck, pro
duces unsightly lumps or swellings; which
causes painful running sores on tho arms,
legs, or fect; which devclopcs ulcers In the
eyes, ears, or note, often causing blindness or
deafness; which Is tho origin of pimples, can
cerous growths, or tho many other manifesto
tions usually ascribed to "humors;" which,
fastening upon tho lungs, causes consumption
and death. Being tho most ancient, It Is tho
most general of all diseases or affections, for
very few persons are eutirely freo from it.
By taking Hood's Sarsaparilla, which, by
the remarkablo euros It has accomplished,
often when other medicines have failed, has
proven itself to be a potent and peculiar
. medicine for this disease. Some of these
cures are really wonderful. If you suffer from
scrofula, be sure to try Ilood's Sarsaparilla.
" My daughterMary was afflicted with scrof
ulous sore Deck from the time she was 22 months
old till she becamo six years of age. Lumps
formed in her neck, and ono ot them after
' growing to the size of a pigeon's egg, beeame
a running sore for over three years. We gave
her Hood's Sarsaparilla, when the lump and
all indications of scrofula entirely dis
appeared, and now she seems to bo a healthy
child." J. 8. Cahmle, Nauright, N. J.

Very little activity now in any
kind of Country produce. The wea
ther is unfovorable for eggs and
poultry, especially eggs. The bot
tom ha3 droped out of egt;s. They
are quoted dull at Cc. in Nashville
from first hands. The weather is too
warm to handle them with safety.
Nothing favorable to report about
dried fruit. Large crops reported
everywhere, and no dealer wants to
buy now. As yet we can not quote
reliable or satisfactory prices. We
can only say to dealers that they
must begin on low prices and be
their own judges until something
definite is known, which may be
sometime yet. Blackberries it
seems will hardly be worth drying
as they kare going out of use.

iMiat Mr. Ilnrrison has ever had the
ightest intention of agreeing to
any system of reciprocity that theCa
nadian Government would accept is
not believed by those in positions to
now his real opinions on this sub
ject ; therefore it is not surprising to
lear that the informal consultation
which was sometime ago set for next
October may not take place at all.
t is alleged that the administration
feels greatly offended at the publica
tion in an English "Blue Book" of
its part in this Canadian reciprocity
business, which it claims the repre
sentatives of Canada had agreed
should be confidential (until some
definite agreement was reached, and
that isn't all. It is also'claimed that
Mr. Blaine and the administration
are greatly misrepresented in the
aforesaid "Blue Book," which states
that the first overtures for reciprocity
came from Mr. Blaine. It doesn't
much matter which side is right in
the present controversy, but it looks
very much as if it was to be made
he excuse for putting au end to even
the limited prospects of Canadian re
ciprocity that have existed. But no
body need be surprised, as it was
never intended that the conference
should be anything but a meaning-
ess farce. , Tho right sort of a reci
procity treaty with Canada would
doubtless prove beneficial! to both
countries, but there is not much
probability of our getting such a
treaty until there Is a change of ad
This very American administra
tion has contracted for eight gun car
riages of Russian pattern at $11,500
each, to mount the twelve-inch
breech-loading mortars intended for
harbor defense upon.
Senator Paddock, of Nebraska, has
been here appealing to Mr. Harrison
to help him in his efforts to get re
turned to the Senate'. It is said that
le offered in return for the help
asked for, to guarantee that Nebras-
a would send a solid Harrison dele
gation to the next republican con'
vention. Mr. Harrison was non
committal, for several reasons. He
has not forgiven Mr. Paddock for the
part he took in defeating the Force
bill at the last session of Congress, but
that wasn't his principal reason for
not committing himself to the Sen
ator's support at this time. It has
been stated to him that ex-Senator
Van Wyck,who is in the field against
Paddock, is strong enough to divide
the delegation if not to be elected to
the Senate and he wants time to find
out, as his programme is not to an
tagonize anybody strong enough to
control even a part cf any state dele
gation to the next republican con
Democrats will certainly have no
reason to blame the National Com
mittee, if they do not this year win
in every State where there is a fight
ing chance for the party. Senator
Gorman, whose headquarters are to
be here, is to take charge of the Na
tional Committee during Senator
Brice's abscence in Europe, and he
proposes to work largely in conjunc
tion with and through the Nationa
Association ot Democratic Clubs, at
the headquarters of which Hon
Chauncey F. Black, president, and
Lawrence Gardner, Secretary, wil
be permanently located. Notwith
standing its being an off, year, Sena'
tor Gorman will make the fight ag
gressive from the jump and the ofii
cials of the Association of Clubs wil
carry out his orders and second his
efforts in all directions, and it only
remains for the rank and file of the
party to become imbued with the
same spirit to make victory certain
in every State that is not hopelessly
republican, and few of them are that
way since the people have begun to
wake up to the enormities of the re
publican tariff system.
The administration is trying hard
to trim on the silver question by put
ting off until too late to have any ef
fect this year's campaigns, its decis
ion as to whether any portion of the
silver bullion purchased monthly
under the silver act of the billion
dollar Congress shall bo coined; the
act provides that it be discretionary
with the Secretary of the Treasury
whether any of it shall be coined. It
has also deferred its decision as to
what rate of interest shall be pai
on the lour-and-a-half per cent bonds
which are to bo extended, but there
is little doubt that the Wall Street
command of 2 per cent will in the
end be obeyed.

A FAT NAN'S AMBITION.
John Craig 'Weighs 973 Pounds and Is
Anxious to Add 35 to It.
Some men travel on their nerve, some
on their Bhape. John Harmon Craig
travels on his size, says the Kansas City
Before his recent visit to wonderland,
in this city, John had traveled more than
400,000 miles. It is a long journey, but
John has much size.
The floor over which John may choose
to walk must be prepared to withstand a
strain of 975 pounds. Nevertheless he
cats and sleeps regularly and conse-
quently is healthy. His ambition is to
weigh 1,000 pounds, which would shatter
the records of both historical and myth
ological heavy weights. He thinks lie
will do it shortly, unless his anxiety to
do so retards his growth.
"It has been the law with people of ab
normal weight and size," said Mr. Craig
during his recent exhibition here, "to be
Bhort lived and subject to violent attacks
of illness. I am the only one who has
enjoyed throughout life perfect health. "
Craig has accumulated several fortunes
and lost two or three in an attempt to
run a circus, lie yet possesses a bank
account well proportioned to his own
size, uesiaes being a rat man he is a
Knight of Pythias, Odd Fellow, and
United Workman, Those who know
him bpst say that he is also a regular
bureau of charity.
He was bom in Iowa City, Iowa, and w
555 years old. 'At birth he weighed 11
pounds. At 11 months he weighed 77
pounds, and at the age of 2 years he
weighed 206 pounds. He was the biggest
baby in the world for his age, and cap
tured the $1 ,000 cash prize offered by Bar-
num in 1858. For the next two years he
traveled in Europe. When he returned
he weighed 800 pounds, and a year later
he weighed 405 pounds. When 25 years
old he weighed 625 pounds.
There is a Mrs. Craig and a Mr. Craig,
Jr. Mrs. Craig is a blonde, 24 years of
age, and weighs 117 pounds. They met
for the first time in St. Joseph m 1884,
when Craig was on exhibition there. It
was a case of love at first sight for both,
and in less than a week after the meeting
matrimonial negotiations had ended sue
cessfully. They were married in Fort
Scott, Kan., two weeks later.
Craig's father weighed 117 pounds, his
mother 125 pounds.
Comparatively few persons have ever
seen absolutely pure water. Even rain
water, which is the nearest common ap
proximation to it, is far from reaching
the absolute standard, and though it i:
good for washing, not many persons
would care to drink it. Spring water i:i
popularly supposed to be pure, but it al
ways contaius more or less earthy or sa
line substances. Indeed, the value of
most springs is due to this fact.
The ocean itself is a huge spring, cou
taining not only salt, but many other
minerals in solution. The Dead Sea is
charged with such elements almost to
saturation. Only distilled water is pure.
By distillation sea water itself is ren
dered drinkable, though not pleasant.
As sand consists largely of silex, which
M ater at the ordinary temperature does
not dissolve, the water of a sandy region
is coin parti vely pure. The " hard " water
of other regions is due to earthy matter
held in solution. This earthy matter,
however, is seldom harmful to those who
Impure water, in the medical sense of
tho word, is water that contains in
fectious microbes. Water, as such,
never contains these ; nor does any form
of simple impurity ever give rise to
them, though it may greatly facilitate
Every case of infectious disease implies
a previous case, and when water is in
fected it is because infected secretions
have in some way entered it, having leea
thrown upon the ground and thence
carried to the well or spring, or river
which supplies the family or community.
It should be remenilx'red that the
deeper the well the larger the area from
which the rainwater linds its way into
it. No discharges or other secretions
from the room of a sick person should bo
thrown on tho ground or buried in it,
within at least 100 feet of the well.
But water which is drank is not the
only source of danger. Many a wide
spread and fatal epidemic lias been
traced to milk from dairies where the
pans had been washed in impure water,
o.- the milk itself adulterated with it.
