"The excellence of Pabst Malt Extract
is not unknown to me, as I hare used it
professionally for years, always with the
most satisfactory results. For mothers
nursing their children and for general
debility from any cause, I regard it as
of especial value, as it combines both
tonic and nutrient properties, which
make it truly the 'Best Tonic"
"I recently prescribed Pabst Malt Ex
tract, The "Best" Tonic, to tbrco of my
patients, all of whom were ladies, anil
all of whom were suffering from dyspep
sia and its consequences, and in all these
cases it acted like a chrm. Two of
them bought more of the tonic, and
continued to take it. until now they tell
me they can eat anything, and one of
them added "everything." without the
slightest inconvenience. They have cer
tainly improved wonderfully in weight
and strength. I have prescribed your
"Best" Tinic a great number of times.

Washington. Aug. 14. Two dis
patches from Governor General Davis,
of Porto Illco, giving additional de
tails of the fearful havoc wrought by
the hurricane of last week were re
ceived at the war department yester
day. They were immediately sent to
Secretary Root who already has taken
measures for dispatching relief to the
people of the island, and is being sec
onded by all the cities and many of the
towns of the country. He thinks it is
the duty of the government tq make
provision for feeding tbe people until the
aid voluntarily given by the citizens of
thecountry reaches them. Thesecretary
will issue an appeal to the governors
of the states with a view to arousing
general interest in the relief work.
Twenty Per Cent. Is Desolation.
The following is the first dispatch
received from General Davis. It' is
dated at San Juan: "The true state of
affairs throughout the island not yet
known because of total destruction of
all telegraphic connections and great
destruction on all roads. Not more
than one-fourth towns yet heard from,
but enough is known to warrant the
statement that one-fifth of the dwell
ings in the island are totally destroyed
and their owners are without any shel
ter whatever, or any food beyond what
has been saved from the debris. The
coffee crop and most of the trees are
ruined, and thus reliance for support
is gone. Fully one-third of the people
subsist entirely on fruit and a small
dpgree on tubas. Al! the former is de
stroyed and much of the latter are rot
ting in the ground.
May He Thousands on the Death Roll.
"The- deaths from falling walls and
drowning will number more than 1,000,
and may be several times this num
ber. While I have not yet
full data I repeat the estimate that at
least 100,000 people are homeless and
destitute. I fear extensive is
sues of provisions will be necessary for
several months. I hope the
charitable people of the states will con
tribute food, clothej, medicines and
money." The second dispatch says
that further but incomplete reports
confirm previous reports as conserva
tive. Press dispatches fchow that in the
city of Ponce alone S00 bodies have
been buried and the total dead in the
district is placed at 2,000. Arccibo.i3

X Wonder Flower.
The Canadian Manufacturer reports
the remarkable phenomenon of the dis
covery of a flower incased in a hole in
an old iron casting, the flower being in
a perfect state of preservition. A work
man engnged in breaking up old Iron
at a foundry in Ontario came across an
old wheel that had done service on a
stationary engine for many years. On
breaking it be discovered In a crevice a
flower blossom In perfect condition, its
color being as fresh as the day It found
Its way into Its mysterious hiding
place. It had evidently fallen into the
casting when it was being poured, and
In some manner escaped Injury from
the molten metal. As the cavity was
perfectly airtight it naturally retained
Its freshness until exposed to view.

Chattanooga, Tenn., Aug. 14. About
3,000 men and boys, sympathizers and
friends of the'locked-out street railway
employes, assembled at one of the most
frequented corners in the city Satur
day evening and jeered the motormen
and conductors of electric cars as they
passed. Decayed eggs and mud balls
were thrown, trolleys were jerked off,
switches thrown, tracks greased and
ell kinds of expedients were resorted
to to delay the cars and annoy the men
AnotheY mob last night at a secluded
point on the road attacked a car con
taining a number of passengers with
stones. Windows in the car were
broken and the motorman was struck.
One lady in jumping form the car was

The motorman drew a revolver and

TAX ON "PIPE LINES.-
"It Goes," Even if the Company Has No
Natural Gas Plant.
Washington, Aug. 14. In the case of
a Philadelphia company which trans
ports natural gas direct from the wells
to the consumer, having no plant and
claiming exemption from tax under a
recept treasury decision. Commission
er Wilson says: "As stated in that de
cision the term 'pipe line' as used in
section 27 of the war revenue act dees
not extend to gas mains and pipes
through which gas is conveyed and.dis
tributed directly to the consumer.
"But ordinarily natural gas is first
transplanted from the wells by pipe
lines to some central point and then
Introduced into distributing mains or
pipes, and at a much lower pressure.
In such cases two systems are used
one for transporting and the other
for distributing the gas. The fact that
the two systems are connected and con
trolled by the same company-would not
exempt the company from tax liability
under the law."
HEAVY CUT IN WAGES.
Men Earning $1.1 Cot to $.1 and Those
Earning $6 Cnt to f 1.50.
Johnstown, Pa., Aug. 14. What Is
probably the record for a big reduction
of wages went into effect in the struc
tural department of the Cambria Steel
company this morning. The reduction
ranges between 70 and 0 per cent. The
straighteners of the large beams will
have their wages'cut to $3, while the
holdups will be paid on a scale that
will average them about $1.50 per day.
The workmen declare that straight
eners had been making an average of
$15 or $16 a day and that the -holdups
averaged from $6 to $7 for their work.
They claim that they were not over
paid even at that rate, for the beams
are very heavy and the work is so se
vere on the men that they can endure
it for only a few years. A general
strike of the straighteners and holdups
is looked for.

Change of Life. I had flooding spells so bad that
none thought I could live. My husband got me
Wine of Cardoi and it saved my life. I am like

It Is the devout wish of nearly an people to live to a ripe old ape.
None of us want to die younjr. This universal desire can be realized if

time. Happy, healthy old age will be the lot of the woman who promptly
corrects the ailments which afflict her sex. In youth, Wine of Cardui will
take the female child safelv over the dividing line between girlhood and
womanhood. As a wife she needs it to help her through the trials of
pregnancy and childbirth with as little discomfort as possible. At the
Change of Life it will help her over the dangerous place that appears in
her pathway between 40 and SO. Then will come many years of truly
blissful existence. She will grow old slowly and gracefully. To the last
she will preserve that charm and beauty which are always characteristic
