Fiyh years ago next Monday
the United States recognize d the
independence of Cuba, and de
manded that Spain withdraw
from the island. Then it set about
the establishment of the Cuban
republic upon a firm foundation.
The history of the past live
years is well known how this
country went to war for the relief
of its neighbor; how it took
charge of the government of
Cuba, restored order and a rea
sonable degree of content; how it
protected the people in the adop
tiouof aconstitution;how it saw to
it that the ofli:ers provided for in
that constitution were fairly elect
ed, and then withdrew, leaving
an independent government with
is a record of which Americans
can be proud.
Although the work which the
United States undertook is not
yet completed, it is approaching
the end. When the Senate rati
fied thcCuban reciprocity treaty
last month little was left to be
done. As the treaty lowers the
tariff rates upon certain Cuban
products, in return for Cuban
concessions to certain
American products, it was ar
ranged that the treaty should not
go into effect till both houses of
Congress have consented to the
tariff modifications. It was not
ratified outright because many
of the portion of Tex ts boundary
with a view to re-establishing
the boundary lines imperfectly
established years ago, after the
annexation of Texas republic, in
hope of adding still further to
the already immense area of that
state, land officials are contemplat
ing another survey with the
confident expectation of showing
that Texas already has land in
excess of what she is justly cnti
tl:dto. In thelastcongrcssa bill
providing for a joint commission
to fix the boundaries was added
by Congressman Stephens, but
failed. The Texas legislature,
just closing a long session, has
been considering the question. If
the movement is undertaken the
state of Texas will lose something
like 1,800 square miles, unless
the land ofiice officials are badly

SEVKKK ATTACK (;' CKUV

"When I had an attack of grip

actually cured myself with one
bottle of Chamberlain's Cough
Ketnedy." says Frank W. Perry,
editor of the Enterprise, Shorts
vilie, N. Y. "This is the honest
truth. I at times .kept from
coughing myself to pieces by
taking a teaspoonful of this rem
edy, and when the coughing
spell would come on at night I
would take a dose and it seemed
that in the briefest interval the
cough would pass off and I would
go to sleep perfectly free from
cough and its accompanying
pains. To say that the remedy
acted asa most agreeable surprise
is putting it mildly

We read with but little com

propriations in the fifty-seventh
congress reached the enormous
total of Í1, 054,108,514. Few of
us comprehend how vast a sum of
money that is. Divided pro rata
it would give more than $20 to
every man, woman and child in
the United States. It is sufficient
to pay an annual salary of 1,000
to 310,821 men for a period of
five years. Were it in silver
dollars placed edge to edge, they
would make a band clear around
the world and overlay more than
half the way back. Placed one
