The following1 isa characteristic * Hood's
Barsaparilla testimonial. Facts like
these have made Hood's Sarsaparilla
America's Greatest Medicine and en
deared it to thousands of homes scat-
cored all over this broad land.
"Wo like to tell wlmt Hood's 3arnpa-
rillft hns done for us. Our four children
hud diphtheria. From the very first our
little boy Ralph , thoa soveii years old , was
very sick uml for Eovoral days it seemed as
if ho would uover bo nny bottcr. After a
while bo Logan to improve and in n few
weeks was able to go out , although weak
and miserable. Thou , gradually
All Strength in His Limbs
gave out. The physicians told us it was
paralysis , which sometimes follows au at
tack of diphtheria. AV'o did everything
for him , but bo grew worse until ho was in
n pitiful condition. Ho suffered terribly
at night and complained continually of !
his head , aud in what little sleep he wan
able to get , moaned unceasingly. Ho lost
all control of the muscles of his body und
limbs. He hn l no appetite aud complained
of fooling oick at his stomach all the time.
After wo had tried many different reme
dies and hnd about given up all hope
commenced him Hood's Snr.
wo giving > a-
parilla. In a short tinio bo ceased to com
plain , his appetite improved and nt the
end of three months ho was nblo to attend
school a pait of the time. Now ho is well
and quite a strong and rugged boy. You
are at liberty to use this testimonial if you
desire , ns wo feel wo cannot say too mucl
in pniiso of Hood's Sarsaparilla as a blooi
purifier and building up medicine. " Mia.

AS A TRAVELING COMPANION.
New UHO Dincoveroil for the Ugly Kus-
slua lilouse.
The reason of the new fangled fem
inine fancy known as the Russian
blouse was discovered by a Washing
ton Star reporter on a trip from Jersey
City to Washington a few nights ago.
The train had just begun to move out
of the Jersey City station when a
young woman , rather of the "new" or
der , swung herself aboard. She was
almost breathless from hunying , and ,
unlike the majority of her se.\ , was sin
gularly unhampered by luggage. A
neatly rolled umbrella and a jacket
were all the traveling gear she carried.
The young woman occupied a section
by herself , and it was apparent that
! > he contemplated retiring , for she re
quested the porter , with every indica
tion of weariness , to make up her berth
with all possible haste. Yet was the
reporter mildly curious to observe that
the young woman had no grip in which
it is usual to carry toilet conveniences.
He wondered if she contemplated ly
ing down in an immaculate tailor
made skirt and a fashionable Russian
blouse. As the making up of the berth
neared completion the young woman
rose and proceeded to the lavatciy. Ev
ery one in the car looked at her , for she
was exceedingly handsome and pos
sessed a trim little figure. Pretty scon
she returned to her section and the re
porter marveled more than ever. She
was arrayed in a black India silk neg
lige , and she carried her blouse over
her arm. Several observing women exchanged - "
changed wondering glances , for they ,
too , had noticed the absence of all lug
gage , and were puzzled at the transfer
mation. This fascinating traveler was
the object of general attention next
morning as the train rolled into Wash
ington. The young woman sat calmly
in her section , rolling into the small
est and tightest bundle possible the
India silk garment. This completed ,
she closed a folding comb , put a tooth
brush into an oil silk cover , and with
a dexterous movement from under
neath , which looked like the stretch
ing of an elastic band , the young wo.m-
an slipped neglige , comb and tooth
brush into her Russian blouse. A hand
kerchief and veil soon followed , and
lo ! the traveler suggested one of our
west end girls arrayed for a morning
stroll on F street , without a suggestive
sign of having passed the night on a
sleeper.

cently paid
a visit to
W e stern
Canada , and speaking of a garden that
he saw in the Edmonton District , says :
"On August 23rd we had the pleasure
of visiting the model seven-acre gar
den at Edmonton , owned and operated
by one Donald Ross , a typical Scotch
man , and as whole-souled , good-na
tured old gentlemen as you often
meet. He gave the Yankees each a
hearty handshake as we were intro
duced in succession by the Canadian
Government Agent , who was our guide
and pilot while at Edmonton , and to
whom we are indebted for many cour
tesies conferred. Mr. Ross informed
us that he cleared from ? 800 to $1,000
annually from the sale of roots , vege
tables , flowers and plants. We here
state that we never before saw such a
growth of vegetables at that season of
the year. He said that he raised 750
bushels of onions to the acre. Beets
were growing as large as your arm ,
turnips the size of one's head , and
cabbages as large as a patent pail. Fol
lowing are prices that Mr. Ross gave
us as receiving for his produce : Beets ,
50 cents per bushel : carrots , 40 cents ;
onions , $1.25 ; turnips , § 5 per ton ; cab
bage , 4 cents each ; green corn , 25
cents per dozen ; tomatoes , $1.50 per
bushel ; potatoes. 25 to CO cents ; cauli
flower , $1 per dozen ; cucumbers , 15
cents per dozen ; strawberries , 25 cents
per box ; squash , 4 cents per lb. , and
other produce in proportion. He kept
a hot-house 12x180 feet , heated by a
furnace by means of flues. One man
beside himself attended this garden ,
except at time of gathering the crop. "

HAVANA ( via Key West ) , March IS.
( New York World Cablegram ) The
discovery of the Maine's ram and ita
position relative to the rest of the
wreck is the crowning proof that the
ship was blown up by a mine or a
large torpedo. There is no longer
room for doubt , reasonable or unrea
sonable. The ship is absolutely broken
in two. Its heavy ram todav ooints
almost at right angles fiom the point
of the intact rear two-thirds of the
ship. It points under water squarely
at the Spanish cruiser Alfonso XiT.
which is anchor way to the left of tha
wreck. It should ucint riuht ahead
at La Machina. The qii2er phenome
non cf the present position of the vis
ible portion of the wreck is thus ex
plained :
On February 15 Alfonso XII and tha
City of Washington- , immediately after
the explosion , lay very near the Maine ,
but pointed away to the left of the di
rection in which the visible portion
of the wreck was found to noiut the
next morning. Exports said that
either an unaccountable current had
held the Maine in a different position
from that of the others while all were
at anchor , or the Maine was hurled
away around toward the right by the
force of an outs.Je exnlosion against
the port side well toward the forward
end. It was hurled away aud the ex
plosion against its port bottom wan
powerful enough to break the ship
bodily and hurl it up and over tha
starboard at the point of greatest im
pact about 100 feet ( or one-third of
the ship's length ) , from its lani.
Tl'e Maine's extreme fcrwinl ro.'nt '
was a masshe steel ram. a termendous
heavy structure. It moved but little ,
and this portion of the ship between
it and the point of oxolnsicn swung
upon this arm like a weight upon a
fulcrum , away from that awful" force
applied against the port shle. In the
same manner the stern of the Ma Inn
was. uninjured and moved .little , while
200 feet of the ship fcrwaid to Lho
point of i-mpact swuntr around to the
right away from the force. And the
Maine ling broken in two by u blow
against its side , as one might lay down
a stirk he had broken across his knee-
The discovery of the Maine's nort
bottom plate , with its split "Z" bar
braces , its gusset plate , its sluice valve ,
its two inches of protective remcnt on
the inside and its Higgins green antifouling -
fouling paint upon the outside was
proof enough. It protrudes from the
water fully twenty feet toward the can
ter of thn ship from thf proper posi
tion , and moved exactly toward the
only interior explosive force of the
ship powerful enough to do much dam
age there. It was hurled into the ship
and above the water by a tremendous
explosion against it from the outside ,
aud no\v that the discovered ram
shows the original position of the ship ,
the awful effects noted on great ami
small things are known to have come
from exterior causes , aided , perhaps ,
by a small interior masazine , as has
been cabled.
Dinner hour for the naval men , the
non-appearance of the Spanish divers
&nd the fortunate absence of the pa
trol boats allowed me to work two-
hours with a sounding leed. comnass
and taoe line. For come time I 'had
