Something for Serious Ketlectlun.
Owing to the censored dispatches
from Manila the people have been kept
in ignorance of the real condition of
the American soldiers in the Philip
pines. The Pittsburg Post, in an
editorial on "The Sick at Manila,"
"An nncensored dispatch via Hong
Kong reports between 3,000 and 4,000
American soldiers in the military hos
pitals, besides a considerable conting
ent ill in quarters, while large
numbers of men, now on duty, are re
ported by regimental surgeons as un
lit for service, and many of these will
doubtless soon swell the list of hos
pital patients. This is not to be won
dered at when we study the weather
reports that Gen. Otis allows to come
through. Think of 41 inches of rain
falling the first 20 days of July! The
soldiers are encamped in swamps and
forced to sleep and rest in water,
either under a pourdown or in the
shallow lakes that now cover most of
the country. We would not be sur
prised, even with reinforcements eeut
out, Otis will have fewer effective
men in November than when he was
forced to, abandon his camjiaign a few
days ago. ' For the next year a steady
drain of 1,000 men a week is wanted
for Mr. McKinley's war, with a couple
of million dollars a week.
"The conditions in Manila are best
understood by a stud of the sanitary
and health reports of the British
troops in India. The latter are better
situated as regards health aud expo
sure than our soldiers in the Philip
pines, who are nearer tho equator and
in damp and malarious surroundings.
Yet a parliamentary report on the
health of the British army in India
for 1896 shows the general average of
the army was 70.481 Europeans, while
tho admissions to the hospitals during
the year were 17. 733.- or 1.3it per
1.000. That is. on an average, the
admissions annually exceeded the
number of troops, as a certain num.

ber out of every 1,000 were admitted
more than once. But this includes
reports from the health stations on
the hills. The sick rate in the Phil
ippines, when northern vitror is fairlv
snapped out of the Americans, will
fairly correspond to the stations on
the plains in India, where the hospital
admissions were found to be 1.400 for
every 1,000 soldiers. This is the judg
ment of the English sanitary experts.
In Madagascar, where the conditions
of health are better than in the Philip
pines, the French suffer more than the
British in India. In ten months, out
of an effective force of 12.850 men,
the deaths were 4,189, or nearly one
third, or 225 out of every 1,000.
"Only a study of the Philippine
facts, compared with the vital statis
tics of other tropical countries occu
pied by white men from Europe, shows
into what a charnel house, as it were,
our American soldiers have been
thrown by their occupation of the
Philippines. It is terrible to reflect
on, and the horror is emphasized when
we involuntarily ask: "Why are they

"During the day every one should

Houston was sick. His companion had
a ravenous appetite.
"Mr. Houston," said the housewife,
with some indignation, "I see you ain't

much, but It is the best I could get up.
I'm sorry you don't appreciate the din

IVrsmatle Climax to Ills Introduction
to theivUc Tobacco.
"A long time ago, when I was a mite
of a boy." said Edison, "I, with two
other little fellows, had 6aved up a lot
of scrap iron and tin and zinc which
we meant to sell when the holidays
rame around. There was a large boy
la the neighborhood (I think he must
have become a bunko steerer after
ward) who knew of our hoard. One
day when we had been in swimming
he came to us and said:
" 'Say. you fellows, if yoa will give
me that tin and iron and stuff you
have, I'll teach you how to chew.
"The proposition struck us as being
very fair, particularly as he agreed to
furnish the tobacco. Well, we were
quite willing, so he brought some Ca
nadian cut down to a sand bank by the
river. He divided the stuff into three
parts and gave us each one. Then he
" 'Xow you must do exactly as I say,
and you must do It right away, or
you'll never learn to chew.
'Now, then, he shouted, hold npr
"We held It up.
" 'Put it in your mouth! he yelled.
"Weput it in.
'Chew" he hissed dramatically.
"We worked away at a great rate.
" 'Swallow it" he screeched.
"We gulped it down, and then that
young rascal fairly rolled down the
back with laughter, while we soon
rolled down tho other side, sicker, I
suppose, than any of us had been In
our lives before or since. One" of the
boys nearly died, and they had a very
serious time with him. That was my
first experience with tobacco." Phila

"Tho eceno was tho master's own

Is It Right for an Editor to Recommend
From Sylvan Valley News, Brevard, N. C.
It may be a question whether the
editor of a newspaper has the right to
publicly recommend any of the vari
ous proprietary medicines which
Hood the market, yet as a preventive
of suffering we feel it a duty to say a
good word for Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. Wo
have known and used this medicine
in our family for 20 years aud have
always found it reliable. In many
cases a dose of this remedy would
save hours of suffering while a physi
cian is awaited. We do not believe in
depending implicity on any medicine
for a cure, but we do believe that if a
bottle of Chamberlain's Diarrhoea
Remedy were kept on hand and ad
ministered at the inception of an at
tack much suffering might be
avoided and in very many cases the
presence of a physician would not be
required. At least this has been our
experience during the past 20 years.
