Maj. Stefffn was mirried at Berlin in
1S86 to Mies Oitilie Schricker. diiichter
of the late L renzo Schricktr of this city.

He served uh distinction in the German
French war of 1870 71. in the HKli Hn
ovarian field artillery regiment, sn.1 was
decorated wilhAhe iron cross; a distinc
tion only conferred f.r bravery on the
field of battle, without regard to rank.
Promoted to a captaincy, be was com
mei ded as tend e: to the military academy
at Berlin, for whit h only the ab!t st utrl
cere ere chosen. Ltter, as major, he
commanded a division of artillery at
Wiesbaden. A short time ago be was

Turk'sh artillery, with other German offi
cers The highest glory of his life was the
appointment as one of ibe arbitrators
concerning a controversy arising from
Prof. Schliemann's celebrated excava
tions at Ttoj .
A critical military journal in Berlin on
Oct. 6, 1891, says that the difficulty in
making tbe necessary topographical eur
veys were immense; that bis chart and
drawing rank among tbe most distin
guished achievements of modern carlo
grapby; and that his explorations and re
por s resemble the classical writings of
Field Mtrshal Count von Mo'tke.
The major was a distinguished military
man and scientifically educated pectin I
man, o. pleasant address, a strict dicc'p
linarian but kind to bis subordinate,
popular with the soldiers, highly appre
ciated by his superiors and esteemed by
bis comrades. His w ife loes a loving
and devoted husband, the Germ in army
a most promising officer. He died in the
very prime of manhood. By his deatb a
military career, whicb apparently wnuld
hae been brilliant, was cut short.

The Speakership Fight.
Mr. Springer has shown that
he is r. pood politician. In all
the contest over the speaker
ship lie never once lost his
temper, and when he was tin
ally forced to yield he so man
aped as to bear away the
honors of the fray. This was
a prei.t thing to do. In ac
complishing it he gratified his
friends, and at the same time
he administered a severe re
buke to those who refused to
stand by him to the end.
Springer is- an indefatigable
worker and by his action in
this struggle he has shown the
country that he possesses bet
ter meial than he has yet been
credited with. 1 le has a great
future before him if he will
but take care of himself. To
this end let him see that he
ipreseres his health. Most
j members of congress giver way
to some form of pulmonary
trouble. If Mr. Springer will
take Keids (icrman Cough
and Kidney Cure: he will es
cape all danger from this
source. This great remedy is
the besl thing in the world for
coughs, colds and every form
of disease that attacks the re
spiratory organs. This makes
it invariable for men who
have to talk in public, especial
ly in open air. The remedy
contains no opiate, so that it
can be taken at any time with
out fear of subsequent danger.
It will cire all throat trouble
from simple hoarseness to the
worst fo -m of bronchitis, You
can get it of any druggist, but
be sure to ak for Keid's, and
take no other.

Senator Stanford of Cali- j
fornia has, it is said, become a !
convert of spiritualism. The
senator is rich enough to be- j
lieve anything he likes. It
will be interesting, though, to
ascertain whether the spirits ;
are urging him to make the
race for president on the alii-
ance ticket. The best thing :
that the senator can do. if he
has made up his mind to run, j
is to take Reid's German '
Cough anil Kidney Cure with
diligence. This great remedy
is the best thing for the voice
that was ever put on the mar
ket. It contains no poisou, but
is composed of pure and sim
ple materials that act at once
and relieve the lungs of all
trouble, ror bronchial diiti
culties it is without a rival. It
contains no opium so that it
dees not paralye the digest
tion but is relaxing, stimulat
ing soothing and healing. Of
all cough remedies it is the
only one of which this can be
said. Aged persons will lmd
this of the greatest assistance
for it enables the system to
throw off the maladies that
are so fatal in old age. In
cases of pneumonia it acts
every time with a certainty
that is marvelous. It has re
peatedly brought health to
people whom the medical fac
ulty had pronounced to be be
yond all hope. When you ask
for this great remedy at your
tlrug store be particular and
see that the druggist gives you
"Reid's,' and do not be put off
with something that he says is
just as good.

Science can do wonders
The French claim now to
have so perfected the manu
facture of oleomargerine that
it is better than the genuine
article as made by the cow.
This shows that science is ad
vancing. It may be however,
that it is all a matter of taste.
A nation that took kindly to
horse steaks as a diet and be
came so infatuated with them
during the siege of Paris that
it has clung to them ever since
may not be absolutely trusted
when it comes to a question of
distinguishing between good
and bad butter. Even in Chi
cago a butcher was discovered
lately who had been carving
steak from street car horses
and selling them to cheap
I boarding houses, and no one
of the boarders had been able
to tell the difference. This
fact speak..- volumes for the
educated Chicago palate.
There is however one thine
in which there is no adulterat
ion and that is in Reid's Ger
man Cough and Kidney Cure.
This respiratory organs. It
contains no poison but is com
posed of pure and simple ma
terial that acts at once and
will relieve the overburdened
lungs even when they are at
tacked by the worst form of
pleurisy. For ordinary mala
dies such ' as colds, coughs,
croup and the like its results
are magical ynd wonderful.
Ask for 'Reid's" and take no
other, for of all the cough rem
edies on the market this is the
only one that contains no
poison. , - - - .
