NEW LIGHT IS THROWN
ON ARSENAL QUESTION
Crozier Charged With Attempting to
Force Fortification Appropriation
in This Manner.
F. E. Sullivan, special Washington
correspondent of the Chicago Chroni
cle, attributes the discharge of the GOO
men from the Rock Island arsenal to
Gen. Crozier's desire to bring pressure
on the congressmen to put through the
j fortifications appropriation, which was
; cut dow n half by the former congress.
Similar action is expected at otner ar
senals. The committee on appropria
tions has placed the Rock Island mat
ter in the hands of Congressman Wal
I. Smith of Council Bluffs, Iowa, with
instructions to make such investiga
tions as will enable the committee to
present the facts to the house so clear
ly that there can be no misunderstand
ing about the motives that actuated
Crozier. The Chronicle correspondent
cited this case as one example of an
an attempt at forcing appropriations.

WHAT HUNYADI JANOS IS
Tho Origin of tho Name.
In Hungary, in the 15th century,
there lived a wonderful man a great
soldier and wise statesman who was
principally instrumental in driving
back the "Unspeakable Turk" and
keeping him out of Hungary at the
period when bands of these marauders
were ravaging met of Europe. By his
victories in war and peace this man
endeared himself to the people and
gained a great and permanent place
In the nation's history. His name was
HUNYADI JANOS, or John Hunyadl,
as it would be in English. To the pres
ent day, in the affections of all Hun
garians, he holds the place of one or
their greatest national heroes. Is it
strange then that they should wish to
give this honored name to one of their
most wonderful natural products the
famous Mineral Laxative Water from
the springs at Buda Pest? The un
failing value of this water as a sure
and gentle natural laxative has gained
for it a world wide reputation, greater
even than that enjoyed by old John
Hunyadi in Hungary. A bottle costs
but a trifle and contains many doses.
One dose, a tumblerful (drunk on
arising, slightly warmed for best re
sults) will within an hour move tho
bowels gently and copiously. At all
druggists. Ask for It by the full name
