Warner's Safe Cure Co.,
Gentlemen: I will be glad to bear testimony
to the value of Warner's Safe Cure for dropsy. I
want those afflicted as I have been to take this life
giver and get well as I did.
I suffered agony for three years and my life was
despaired of, when one day my doctor
guess I will give you Warner's." Thank Go'd for
such a remedy. It brought me health and new
life. I have used it pretty regularly for a year, but
I am well today, and had in not been for Warner's
Safe Cure I would have been in my grave.

Altogether about 900 British have been

Oerraan View of the Situation.
Berlin, June 8. The foreign office
regards the situation in China as no
worse than it was Wednesday evening.
No official reports indicating an unfav
orable change have !ecu received. The
papers, however, take a different view
of the matter. The Vossische Zeituug
saj-s: fc.vidences are lacking of liar
mony among the powers interested in
China; and the probability is that if
the boxers movement Is allowed to
spread and the dangers growing out of
it become more serious this result will
le owing to want of harmony." The
National Zeituug. which expresses its
views in similar terms, says it hopes
that until the present troubles are over
ltussia. (Jreat Britlan and Japan will
bury their differences.

London, June S. The situation in
China, as measured by abundant un
official telegrams, continues full of in
teresting possibilities, but apparently
It has not grown worse during the last
twenty-four hours. The morning pa
pers. in long editorials dealing with
the situation, refer to the possible
course of the t"nitHl States. The
Daily Mail, which goes bevond any
other In urging America to take the
lead in intervention, tinder the cai-
tion McKinb-y s Opportunity, says
"The I'nited States have secured def
inite pledges ns to the maintenance of
the oiMn door, and their intervention
would not produce friction, danger of
which is to be anticipated should eith
er Knglatid or Uiusiu act alone. We
have no desire to provoke a world
wide atif1ict. Yet our movements are
regarded with so much suspicion by
many Kussians that serious complica
tions might ensue did we land a strong
force near I'ekin.
Calls Ic Our Opportunity.
"The same applies to ltussia. face
to face with ourselves, but the 1 uited
States have traditions of friendship
with ltussia anil a community of in
terests with ICugl.-iml. Their action
would, therefore, assure the hostility
of neither power. It need scarcely be
said that they would have the moral
support of the British people and our
material supxirt also, if only the pol
icy of our government in the far cast
were stronger limn it is. They would
certainly be assisted by Japan. In
this way a world conflict disastrous to
the interests of all great states could
best lw avoided. The opportunity for
America lias come. Will she be equal
to it or will she let it slip from her
hands and lose her vast itotcntialities
of trade in northern China?"
He Caabes Par Checks.
New York pays Its employees by
check, aud each pay day sees a great
many men with their whole mouth'a
salary in their hand, but no money.
Various bankers w hose places of busi
ness are near the city hall are willing
to cash the city's checks, but they
charge a commission, usually 10 cents
on each $100.
The proprietor of a saloon near the
city hall Is willing to cash the checks
w ithout charging a commission, and on
pay days his establishment is jammed
with officials. He makes his profit on
the increased sale of liquids at his bar,
for no man after having his check cash
ed leaves the place without buying a
drink. The proprietor of the estab
lishment provides against the city pay
day by drawing ?i5,000 from the bank
and hiring a man to take entire charge
of the check cashing business. Fre
quently the entire t!o,000 is exchanged
for checks. When this happens, the
proprietor sends for more money. No
city employee asks to have his pay
check cashed and Is not accommodat
ed, and the extra pay day sales at the
bar are a considerable feature of the
3 ear's trade. New York Sun.

The dog resented this, and, when told
to bring the dish, refused, and it could
nowhere be found, on which his master
poke angrily to him and ordered him
to bring the dish at once.

a man who has constantly ana con

for which the Democratic party
stands today and he must in all es

They might liud many such men.
but I believe none east of Indiana
would suit the western Democracy as
well as Mr. Shively. His record as a
Democrat has been so clean and con
sistent that he surely would be ac
rentable to the eastern and southeast
ern delegates. In addition to this his
location in Indiana furnishes a very
strong argument in favor of his se
lection. Indiana is probably Demo

eliminates the last element of uncer
