and that its tendency will be to acquit

flagrant mismanagement of which
was so conspicuous a feature of
tbe struggle while it eras in pro
gress. Such a consequence of the
work of a commission delegated bv
President McKinley to investigate the
operations of tbe departments blama-

simply one. wherein the president
asked a commission of his own selec

Have you ever read a newspaper ar
ticle, a glowing account of some inci
dent told in elusive words to lead you
on, ami found it ended up with a pro
prietary advertisement? Made you
mad, didn't it? And were you con
vinced of the merits of the article?
We think not. liceause it told the ex
periences of some stranger in a far
away town. To take his word for it,
it was like "going it blind."' It's a
verv different thinr when a statement
is prescribed from a citizen, from peo
ple we know, and that s the case here.

How to Prevent I'neuuionia.
You are perhaps aware that pneu
monia always results from a cold or
from an attack of la irrippe. Durintr
the epidemic of la grippe a few years
ago when so many cases resulted in
pneumonia, it was observed that the
attack was never followed bv that dis
ease when Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy was used. It counteracts any
tendency of a cold or la grippe to re
suit-in that dangerous disease. It is the
ltest remedy in the world for bad colds
and la grippe. Every bottle war

Recently there has been placed in all

from coffee. It does not cost over
one-fourth as much. Children may
