Representative Tawoy of Minnesota,
has taken another stop In tho oleomar
garine fight now pending In Congress
by calling on Secretary Gugo for
information ns to thn constituents of
oleo, tho design being to show that
thoy are positively hurtful. Tho
Information Is on file at iho Internal
Revenue bureau, aa tho law requires
tho manufacturers to make, monthly
reports showing tho materials used. Ti
is claimed by tbo dairymen that tho
oleoma-jriirine manufacturers have
summoned to their ahl tho representa
tives of other industries by misrepre
sentation. Thoy say iho cotton sued

A Testimonial from Old Knglanrt.
"I consider Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy tho best in the world for bron

my wife's life, sho having been a mar
tyr to bronchitis for over six years,
being most of tho timo confined to hor
bad. She Is now quite well." It is a
great pleasure to the manufacturers of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy to be
able to publish testimonials of this

Is being done, p'lin nnd suffering re

We killed 15 Insurgents, and I don't
know how many there was wounded but
they did not take tho place.
Thoy fight mostly with haloes, which
is a knife about two feut long and as
sharp as a razor. It was a regular
hand to hand light. Those we did kill
wo just put our gun barrel to their
faces and fired. I never wanted to see
anything so bad In my life ns I wanted
to see day light that morning. I
thought of homo ewect home.
There were about 600 Insurgents to
our 30 soldiers. Ono of our man wus
killed, two wounded and two snrgonts
badly cut on tho head. You ought to

The sight of so many dead nftor the

All who use Chamberlain's Pain Balm
for rheumutlam are delighted with the
quick relief from pain which It ufforda.
When speaking or this Mr. D. N. Sinks,
of Troy, Ohio, says: "Some timet ago
I hud a severe attack of rheumatism in
my arm and shoulder. I tried numerous
remedies but got no rulief until I was
recommended bv Metmrs. Geo. F. Par
sons & Co., druirulstrt of this place, to
try Cliumljurla'ln'rt Piiln Balm. They
recommended It so highly that I bought
ono bottle. I was soon relieved ot all
puin. I liuvo since recommended this
liniment to many of my friends, who
acret with ma that it Is tho best
romedy for muscular rheumatism In tho
market." For salo by A. R. Champ

learning ot tho important asnlntn;irii
of this 18-year-old heroine, invited liex
to call at his office. In a heartfelt little

has ever since persisted. It is uaidby'j
