It is a mistake to consider Catarrh merely
n local trouble. It is unquestionably a
disease of the blood, and therefore the right
way to cure Catarrh is to remove from the
blood the impurities which cause and feed
it. This is to be done by taking Hood's
Sarsaparilla, the great blood purifier, which
effectually expels all traces of poison and
germs of disease.
"I have been troubled for years with
and have never received the least benefit
from the many so-culled catarrh cures. Of
late 1 have been taking Hood's Sarsaparilla
and can honestly my that I certainly
improved. I know Hood's Sarsaparilla to
1)0 a mighty good medicine." H. A.
(iF.OKGE, Athol, Mass.
"For years I have been troubled with that
terrible, disagreeable disease, Catarrh. I
look Hood's Sarsaparilla with the very best
results. It cured mo of that continual
dropping in my throat, and stutl'ed'up
feeling." Mr.s. S. C. IIkath, Putnam, Conn.

There can be no habitation in the
blood or body for poisonous microbes
when Swift's Specific enters the sys
tern. It changes the character of the
blood so that the germs must either
perish or get out, and of course they
leave. S. S. S. also forces out the
poison which the microbes have left
behind. If there is a sore or ulcer
the poison comes out through that
otherwise through the skin.

Speaker Crisp has been ill with the
grip, but he is m busy making thni
committee assignments that ho says
le cannot enjoy the luxury of taking
to his bed until thtf troublesome busi
ness is settled, and he expects that it
will be settled on Wednesday, when
"ongress will take a recess until the
th of January. The selection of
Northern men for the chairmanships
botli the Ways and Means and
Appropriation committees, it being
about settled that Mr. Springer, of
llinois will have the first, and Mr.
Iolman, of Indiana the last, has
made some dissatisfaction, the argu
ment being made that one section
should not have both. But Mr.
Crisp's friends reply by (.'.ting the
fact that the South has all three of
the democratic members of the com
mittee, on Rules Crisp, McMillin,
nd Catchings which theysuy about
qually divides the power o far as
the control of legislation is concerned.
Representative Mills, who has been
il - I 1 - 1 i T
iuui! in, is now convalescent, in re
ly to a note from Speaker Crisp ten
dering him the second place on tlx
committee of Ways and Means and
asking which committee Commerce
or Postoiliees he preferred takhie
the chairmanship of Mr. Mills
wrote asking not to be assigned to
the Ways and Means committee and
expressing a willingness to accept
such other committee assignments as
may be made for him. The com
mittee on Commerce has been chang
ed to the committee on Interstate
and Foreign Commerce, and it is
thought Mr. Mills will bo its chairman.
The Houso Committee on Rules
reported in favor of increasing the
membership of the Ways and Means
committee from 13 to 15 and of the
quadro-centennial from 9 to 11. Af
ter accepting this report, the House,
on motion of Mr. Springer, voted to
change the name of tho last commit
tee to that of the Columbian Exposi
tion. The new rules will not be re
ported until after tho recess, but it is
not expected that they will differ
very materially from those used in
the Fiftieth Congress, when Mr. Car
lisle was Speaker of the House.
Representative Enloc, of Tennes
see, offered a resolution, which was
referred to the Committee on Rules,
providing for the appointment of a
committee of five to investigate
charges against the Pension Bureau,
including the notorious re-rating
and promotion cases, which resulted
in the removal of "Corporal" Tan
ner: the oflice-brokerasre, which cot
son of Commissioner Raum in
trouble ; the favoritism by which
claims of certain attorneys are given
preference over those filed either by
individual claimants or other attor
neys, and "all other matters relating
to the conduct of the Commissioner in
the matter,or to the administration of
his office in the judgment of said com
mittee may conduce to the honest,
clean, just, economical and efficient
administration of said Bureau." The
adoption of this resolution by the
House may bo put down as a cer
