SOUTHERN STANDARD-MCMINN VILLE, TENNESSEE. SATURDAY, NOA. 7,1891.
Makes tUo lives of many people miserable,
and often leads to solf-destructlon. Distress
after eatlt; sour stomach, sick headache,
heartburn, loss of nppctlto, a faint, " all gono"
feeling, baa taste, coateU tongue, and Irregu-
larlty of tho bowels, are
DIStrC33 gomo of tho more common
AftGr symptoms. Dyspepsia does
-j not 6et well of Itself. It
baling requires careful, persistent
attention, and a remedy llko Hood's Sarsa
parllla, which acts gently, yet surely and
efficiently. It tones tho stomach and other
organs, regulates the digestion, creates a
good appetite, and by thus lck
overcoming tho local symp- u A .
toms removes tho sympa- HGuCJaCrlO
thctlo effects of tho disease, banishes tho
headache, and refreshes tho tired mind.
''' I have been troubled with dyspepsia. I
had but little appetite, and what I did cat
I4firt. distressed mo, or did mo
nearc- lutle booJi Jtl an hour
UUrn after eating I would expe
rience a falntness, or tired, all-gono feeling,
as though I had not eaten anything. My trou
ble, I think, was aggravated by my business,
which is that of a painter, and from being
more or less shut up in a oiir
room with fresh paint. Last u
uprlng I took Hood's Parsa- StOmaCM
rilla took three bottles. It did mo an
Immense amount of good. It gave mo an
appetite, and my food relished and satisfied
tho craving I had previously experienced."

REMOVE A11E is no
imviiji doul)t the correct thing
to treat the symptoms of a disease
but this is not effective unless the
cause of complaint is removed. For
instance, a fever may be treated
with quinine, etc., but unless the
cause is removed tho fever will sure
lv return. Again, the sores and
eruptions of Scrofula may be healec
by mercury and potash treatmen
hut unless the cause of these symj
loins is cleansed from the system
they will return or attack some of
the delicate internal organs. Swift
Specific strikes at the cause of the
trouble, and forces out the germs of
disease, and the poison through th
pores ol the skin, and at the same
time builds up the sreneral health of
the sufferer. Swift's Specific is a
purely vegetable remedy, and is
harmless to the most delicate, yet it
never fails tu eliminate the poison
from the hninan body. We will
mail a vahibale book to all who will
I'li'.l for it.
Washington, D. C. Nov. 2, 1891.
The jealousy between Mr. Harrison
and Secretary Blaine, which some
people will- persist In saying docs
not exist, crops out at all times. The
latest statement by the friends of Mr.
Ulrtlne is, that if Mr. Harrison had
been content to wait -13 hours for the
arrival of Mr. Hluine, instead of him
self hurriedly preparing the demand
made of the Chilian Junta, the ad
ministration would not today be in
its present awkward predicament.
They contend that Mr. Blaine would
have drawn up the document so that
the Chilians would have found it im
possible to have answered in the
manner they did that of Mr. Harri
son, and charge that Mr. Harrison's
reason for hurrying the matter was
that ho thought to obtain some pop
ularity by posing as tho champion of
mcrican interests abroad, which
might otherwise have gone to his
Secretary of State.
Speculation as to the outcome of
the Chilian difficulty is the principal
occupation of a good many people in
Washington at this time, and not a
few of them, including all the officers
in the Nuvy, where promotion is
slow in time of peace, are heartily
wishing for war, notwithstanding
our poorly prepared condition for
war, even with a weak, power like
Chili. Secretary Tracy admits that
few even of our new vessels are prop
erly prepared to fight and that some
thing is lacking in either the equip
ment or armanent of every one of
them ; besides, we would find it very
difficult to maintain a fleet in Chilian
waters without a Bingle coaling sta
tion in that section of the world.
However, it is not probable, although
possible, that we shall go to war
with Chili. Senor Montt, the Chil
ian Minister here, is confident that
an agreement mutually satisfactory
will be reached after his government
has finished the investigation it is
making into the fight of the mob,
but advices from Chili do not ' indi
cate that such an opinion is enter
tained there. .
Republicans admit that Mr. Blaine
would like very much to get Minis
ter Egan out of Chili, being fully sat
isfled that be made a mistake la
sending Mm there, but they say he
will not be recalled while the rela
tions Between the two countries are
in such a strained condition as at
present, unless it shall be determined
by the administration to break off all
diplomatic relation with Chili, and
that will not be done unless it be
comes absolutely necessary in order
to maintain the position assumed by
the administration in its original de
mand upon Chili. ' Y
Just a little more than $4,500,000
of the matured 4 per cent bonds are
now outstanding, and not far from
ten per cent of them are in the
hands of the U. 8. Treasurer to se
cure parts of the circulation of less
than a dozen national banks. These
banks have been requested to have
these bonds extended at 2 per cent,
which would make them available
as security for their circulation, and
which would also please Secretary
Foster, in a9 much as it would mean
several hundred thousand dollars
more to help meet the appropriation
of the billion dollar Congress.
Secretary Foster was the only
member of the cabinet that went on
the stump during the State cam
paigns just closed.
The Ladies' Favorites.
. By perusing the pages of the
French Journals republished in Eng
lish by A. McDowell & Co., 4 West
14th, Street, New York, it can read
ily be understood how they have be
come "the Fovorites" with ladies.
Issued in Paris by different pub
lishers, they are the leading Fashion
Journals of the "Old World." It is
not, therefore, a matter for surprise
that unbiassed critics should have
pronounced them the best Fashion
Journals ever offered to the Ameri
can public. It would be straicre, in
deed, if ladies did not give up the
inferior Fashion magazines which
they have hitherto patronized for
these handsome journals, which arc
known to be a month ahead of all
other3 in civinsr the styles, and con.
tain such valuable practical lessons in
the art of cutting and making dress
es. "La Mode do Paris" and "Al
bum des Modes" are rivals for tho
iirsi place, single copies ueing o
eenfs each, or $;.")() per annum. "La
Mode," the Family Magazine, is only
l." cents a-conv. or $1.")0 a year. Do
not allow news ncrenls to substitute
inferior publications f r these, which
can be mailed to you from New York

A Trip to California.
San Diego, Oct. 29, 1801.
EditokStandard: Leaving Nash
ville at 9 o'clock p. m., Oct. 10th, I
arrived at Los Anueles (The Citv of
Angels) at 10 p. m. of the 14th, where
I remained till the following morn
ing, then took the train which reach
ed mv point of destination at I
o'clock p. m.
I purchased my ticket over the
Southern Pacific, or Sunset Route,
from Nashville, via Birmingham.
Montgomery, Mobile, New Orleans,
Houston, San Antonio, El Paso,
Yuma City, and Los Angeles. ,To
me, traveling was everything new,
and but few objects of special note
on the way escaped my observation.
Even at the hour of midnight I was
called from my birth to view the
scenery of the Rio Grande River,
along which we traveled some fifty
miles. On one side a perpendicular
cliff towers above, a hundred feet or
more, tho outlines being made
plainly visible by the moon's soft
rays. There is just sufficient space for
the train to pass on the edsre of a
precipice, where three hundred feet
beneath, the sound of gurgling waters
can be heard. Such grandeur must
be seen in order to be fully appreci
ated. Passing through New Mexico
and Arizona, an occasional Mexican
abode and a lone wigwam of the
dusky red man is all that can be seen
to break tho monotomy of the desert
waste. At Yuma City we stopped
for supper, and the passengers had
an opportunity to strole around and
enjoy the fresh breeze from the Colo
rado. It was here that numerous
squaws, yet In their teens, made
themselves conspicious by that form
and color of dress so peculiar to them.
Leaving Yuma City, night soon
came on, and we were glad for at least
twelve hours to rest our vision from
the burning sand. The following
morning (which was Wednesday)
we found ourselves crossing the Colo
rado desert, and after a few hours
ride, we came in sight of a beautiful
sheet of water, the train bordering its
edge for a number of miles.' This is
known as the Great Salton Lake, and
has been in existence only a few
months. Its formation was caused
by an overflow of the Colorado
river, the water forcing a channel
of more than five miles distance
through the range of sand hills
which border the desert on the
South. We came through El Cajon,
(El Kahone) pass just after, dark,
tnen an was a blank tin 1 found my
self in comfortable quarters of a ho
tel at Los Angeles. Four hours ride
yet remained for the completion of
my journey, and ere half , the dis
tance was left behind, we beheld the
beautiful blue waters of the grand old
Pacific. Language fails to express
i's thoughts of the beauty and
grandeur of the breakers. As they
near the shore they rise like a per
pendicular wall some twenty feet
high, then break and tumble in
sprays,seemingly as so many drifts of
snow. After the preliminaries of
meeting with relatives were over,
gave myself to a few moments of re
flection. 1 looked backward over
the distance I had traveled by rail
and the thought presented itself,
that I am nearly three thousand
miles from all that is dear to me.
San Diego is a beautiful city ' with
a population of nearly twenty thous
and inhabitants, and can boast of one
of the finest and best regulated
school systems of any city in the
West. The mild climate and pic
turesque situation makes it very at
tractive indeed. The street cars are
run by three methods, electricity
steam cable, and horses. The com
pany which owns the steam cable
lino has erected at its terminus a
handsome pavilion overlooking Mis
sion Valley. Many other things of
interest I could mention, but my let
ter is getting loo long. My health is
good, and I am gaining in weight
and expect a pleasant time during
