that General Pando la in excellent

people thero remains no further reason
for continuing the fight In the field. The
statement iloses with a patriotic appeal
to the men in arms to return to the
peaceful homes of their regenerated

of tender years. The commissioner
adds that the "concentrados" are badly
distributed. At Pinar del Rio, the capi
tal, for instance, thero are only 4G0 of
these unfortunate people, while at
town like Consolacion and Candelaria
there are. over 4,000 of the sufferers.
Tha municipal authorities of such
place, the commissioner says, are with

the tendency cf business has been to

The low price for print cloths Is fol

Continuing His Work at Chicago.
Chicago, Dec. 4. John Atkinson will
found an Institution In Chicago for the
treatment of cripples according to his
Ideas, and to spread his successful
methods. He reached this decision up
on the receipt cf a telegram yesterday
afternoon from Secretary Egan, of the
state board of health. The message ab
solutely forbade him to continue his
practice, publicly or privately. So as
to come within the law he wiil put reg
istered physicians at the head of his in
stitution, but they will practice accord
ing to the Atkinsonian methods. The
poor will be treated gratis twice a week.
What annoys Atkinson most is that
this latest fiat from the board prevents
him from completing the cases he has
begun. Speaking of little Henry Bur
ton "I ought to be allowed to follow up
such cases as his," he said. "I am sure
I can make the child's club foot as good
and sound as those ot the healthiest
child. I got the feet Into their proner
position. Of course they did not stay
in place, but In a few more treatments
they will be all right. That is why I
am bound to establish an institution. If
I am not allowed to practice. I want
cures to be accomplished In mith cases."
