fhicago Chronicle: The world has
heard with considerable interest, but
not unmixed with a different kind o:
feeling1, of Senator llauna's declara
tion of a purpose to stand true to his
friend IJathlwine in his troubles with
the Cuban courts. Americans gener
ally have a great deal of respect for
the man who refuses to "desert his
friend under lire." All of them do
not regard his loyalty as entirely jus
tified unless he run show that his
friend ought not to have been under
tire or was so without serious fault
of his own.
They admire the senator's loyalty
in a way. but they dfr not in nnr de
gree sympathize with his declared
purpose to get his friend out of the
consequences of the tire regardless
of whether he deserved the fire or
not or merely because he. the senator,
chooses to say that he floes not think
lie deserved it.
To take this attitude is to declare
thnt ersonal friendship is to lie re
garded as of higher obligation than
public law and public policy ami the
safe-guarding of social order. nil
combined. In any mere private indi
vidual this would practically place
hint on the same moral level with the
otTender against law and public order.
For a man in the senator's fiosition
It is an attitude the more reprehensi
ble In jusf the greater degree that his
rank as an official representative of
public law- and safety is one of great
er responsibility than any private in
dividual's. TJie senator will be wise
if he exhibits gTeat care nlwuit as
suming a position in thi matter that
may gravely reflect on his own sense
of public duty.

Roosevelt's Warning to Capital.
President Koosevelt's speech ut the
Charleston exposition commands at
tention from the whole country, since
it was addressed to a much larger
audience than the eople within the
sound of his voice or even the jieople
of the south. He takes pains to re
buke demagogism. class feeling and
prophets of evil, but finally he lets
out the thought that is uppermost in
his mind, and that concerns the por
tentous power being acquired , by
great combinations in AmecH. The
president is uneasy in regard to this
piiasf of our n.nioual life, and well he
may le. It is gratifying to find him
warning the immense forces of capi
tal, now massed almost exclusively
in hY own party, that the national
welfare requires that "the power of
supervision and regulation" fiver them

A FOOL'S LUCK.
ICopyright. 1902. by'C. B. CewU.
I had leeii sent ov r to P.mis tot-lose
up a certain business tleal wltli a
French linn and bring back $1U.IX0 In
ensh. I call It a business ileal, but
now that many yenrir have elapsed
aud no barm can come. of it I may say
that it had to do with laces which bad
escaped paying full duty at the New
York custom house. This I did not find
out for myself until years afterword.
I was to lie allowed two weeks to see
tbe sights of Paris, and, being a yonug
mnn of twenty-four. It was right and
proper that the head of the firm should
give me a lot of fatherly advice ns to
how 10 take care of myself. When I
came to think it all over afterward, I
could not help but see that he had
been more interested in the safety Of
his cash than In my moral welfare."
I had been in Paris just oue day'
when I made u friend, 'and it came
nlo ut In a curious way. I had found
my way to the Hois and taken a seat
on a liend) occupied by a man asleep.
I gave him no attention, mid It was
while my back was loward him thnt
he was suddenly seized and hurled
across the path by a young man of
about my own age whose looks proved
him a gentleman. As the fellow arose
and sneaked off the youug man ex
plained to me in fairly gofsl English
that the canaille was trying to pick
my pockets as he camo up. I felt un
der obligations, of course, and as be
sat down on the bench Jieside me and
entered Into conversation 1. found bim
an agreeable gentleman. He was a
man about town with plenty of money,
and there was a time when his name,
D'Aivy, had been enrolled amoug the
nobility of France. I didn't think It
at all singular that he "look" to uie
and hoped I would permit him to make
my stay pleasant. I was conceited
enough to think it my due ami in
wonder u bit why the rest of Paris
bud not heard of my: arrival.
In the course of two or three days
Gustav D'Arcy and I had become
chummy. He had told me all 'about
the estates lie had fallen heir to find
the improvements ho was making to
his different town houses and country
seats, and I had turned myself Inside
out to him. There was only one thing
that I kept back, and that was aliout
the $li).0iio. but the week had not end
ed when a glass too much made me
Isiast of that. If my father, had
only leen a Frenchman. I should
have claimed IJustav as a half brothmn
or something of that kind and been
proud of the tie. 1 think he referred
to that "flu.onii on several occasions,
but carelessly, as liecanie n young man
of millions, and he came to kuo the
very hour when I was to receive it. I
was to receive It at 4 o'clock of u Fri
day afternoon and start for Havre the
nest morning at 1 to take u steamer
tJustav didn't go with me to get the
money, but awaited my return at the
hotel. There was no hilarious rejoic
ing on his part when I exhibited the
bank notes, lie had paid sums of that
size for hairless Russian dogs. He was
perturbed instead of hilarious, tearful
Instead of joyful, and it was all on ac
count of the fact that he was to lose me
next day. When he could choke back bis
emotion, we opened a liottle of cham
pagne, our last, and fifteen minutes aft
er drinking my first glass of it I was
lying on the floor fast in n stupor. The
gallant and sorrowful hearted Gustav
had given me knockout drops. He had
probably learned the trick from his
friend Jones whjle taking In the Bow
ery. All I remembered was feeling
sleepy. Tbe chevalier probably lost no
time in possessing himself of those
bank notes as soon as I was' helpless,
ond he had been gone twenty-four
hours before I could tell my story to a
policeman brought In by the landlord.
That policeman was very kind' and
courteous. He may have called me a
hayseed and a fool, but, if so. he was
talking to the landlord Instead of me.
He said nothing whatever to hurt: my
feelings, not even when It was found
that (Justav had taken my tickets and
my last cent. He hadn't left me watch
or pin to raise the amount of my hotel
I was lying In bed, with a head tjiat
seemed big enough to fill the whole
room, when the policeman returned
after two hours absence. I was routed
out of bed and put in a. carriage and
taken to a hospital to identify my dear
Gustav. There was no trouble about
that. He lay there with a broken leg.
and bis features had undergone no
change. Six hours after robbing me.
while on his way. to the depot to take
a train, his cab had been upset and he
had received his hurt. He wasn't n bit
glad to see me. but still he carried the
thing off very well. He remarked that
I was the biggest fool and the softest
mark he bad run across during his ca
teer and advised me to accept of a le
gal guardian as soon as I returned to
the United States. He hai everything
be had robbed me of. and when I ex
pressed iny surprise that a scion of no
bility should descend to knockout drops
and robbery he laughed in chorus with
the officers. There were certain for
malities to be gone through with be
lore my property was restored to me.
and during the inter lew I learned
that my affectionate IVArcy had been
playing the confidence game for. the
last fifteen years and that he had seen

Indications point to an outbreak of typhoid fever very shortly and in view of such possibility
ve believe you should know about Liquozone and its value as a preventive. Disease germs of
any sjiecies, typhoid, malaria, etc., cannot make a successful attack if your system is healthy.
I5y increasing the percentage of hemaglobin, causing the red corpuscles to increase, adding to the
oxygen-carrying tover of the blood, Liquozone builds up such robust vitality as to quite destroy
these dangerous germs. The!) its antiseptic action is useful. Whenever the drinking water is
suspicious, many people effectually sterilize it by adding a teaspoonful of Liquozone to each glass
they drink. ' '
Liquozone contains no alcohol, is not a drug or combination of drugs, not a medicine; simply
nature's blood food. Jt is prescribed by the better class of physicians, used extensively in hos
pitals and sanitaria.
In order to have you personally test
this product, we will send von live
days' treatment of Liquozone on receipt of ten cents in stamps or coin to pay part postage, if you mention
