COL. McCINNESS VACATION.
Foimer Actloc Commandant at Kock

The following, appearing in the St.
Louis Globe-Democrat, will be read
with interest here, Col. McGinness
having been formerly acting com
mandant at Rock Island arsenal:
"Col. McGinness. chief of ordnance
of the United States army in the
Philippines, has been having a very
busy time of it since he began his
duties, and recent letters to friends in
this city state that he was badly in
need of a rest and intended taking a
good one at the tirst opportunity.
Col. McGinness was formerly sta
tioned in this city, and during his
residence here he made many warm
personal friends, who have not lost
interest in him since he was ordered
away on foreign service.
"According to the American, pub
lished in Manila, Col. McGinness is
probably already spending a vacation
with a party of engineers and army
officers, who are camping out in the
island of Luzon in an endeavor to find
the highest and healthiest spot on the
island for the erection of a sanitarium
In an issue of the paper just received
by mail it is stated that the survey
party, accompanied by Col. McGin
ness. would leave Manila at once for
San Fernando de la Union, and thenee
travel across country to Bagio dc la
Trinidad, a mountain hve miles from
Trinidad and 45 miles from the town
of Calasao. where the sanitarium
will probably be located.
"I he plans contemplated the sur
veyiug of i ho country between Bagio
and Cula sao m regard to the feasibili
ty of building a railroad, which would
tap the richest mineral lands in Lu
zoa. It was expected that the work
of the party would require an absence
of from six weeks to two months, as
several surveys might be necessary
for connecting the two points, Bagio
and Calasao, with a line direct, and at
the ame time easy to build. Tho
elevation of Bagio, where Col. McGin
ness elected to spend his furlough.
as near as Has been computed, is
4.700 feet above the sea. tho climate
being all that can be desired, exhilar
ating and bracing, never too hot in
the day time and cool enough for ex
tra blankets at night; a placo where
mosquitoes are unknown. The country
there abounds in geese, ducks and
other wild fowl, and' the officers on
the survey all expected to have lots of
sport shooting them."

It Happened In a Drag Store.
"One day last week a lady came to
my drug store and asked for a brand
of cough medicine that I did not have
n stock," says C. R. Grandin. the
popular druggist of Ontario, N. Y.
She was disappointed and wanted to
know what cough preparation I could
recommend. I said to her that I
could freely recommend Chamber-
ain's Cough Remedy, and that she
could take a bottle of the remedy and
after giving it a fair trial if she did
not hnd it worth the money to bring
back the bottle and I would refund the
price paid. Iu the course of a day or
wo the ladv came back in com Dan v
with a friend in need of a cough med
icine and advised her to buy a bottle
of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. I
consider that a very good recommen
dation for tte remedy." The remedy
owes its great popularity and exten

personal recommendations of people
who nave been cured by its use. It
