The Postollice Department has allowed

The penchant which Virginia politi?

THE ROOSEVELT CONSTERNATION
A Washington correspondent wdiose
descriptive powers may possibly be under
some obligation to his imagination,draws
an amuslna picture of the disturbance
which the iuvasiou of the Navy Depart?
ment by Theodore Roosevelt has created.
It is ouly by a constant mental 'effort,
according to this 'authority, that the ad?
mirals, commodores and lesser magnates
of the sea can reeounize the necessity for
obeying the orders and respecting the
opinions of a civilian worm of the hour
like the secretary, but when it comes to
dealing with an assistant secretary who
takes his own importance for granted
and rushes about with impious disregard
for naval traditions, customs "and illu?
sions, their astonishment and grief are
really pathetic. Mr. Roosevelt, says the
correspondent. hiiH assumed and exercises
a power which nobody knows how to dis?
pute, though all ol the officers yearn to
do so. He is not subject to flattery, ho
cannot be patronized, and he has no ap?
preciation of the condescension of those
who give him reluctant recognition
without fully confessing his right to it.
The heads of the several bureaus, who
are admirals, look at each other in con?
sternation. Their subordinates, K-ho are
commodores, captains, commanders, and
lieutenants, ask each other under their
breatli what is to come of it, whether their
prestige is gone forever, and if a civilian
may outrank an officer <n the navy. They
crowd back and hold their breath as he
passes down the corridor, and then turn
to each other and say, "He has gone by.':
There must be a good deal of exaggera?
tion in all this, but somehow its founda?
tion on fact is a'most self-evident.?New
Important action was taken by the Sen?
ate finance committee Friday on one of
the internal revenue items of the tariff
bill. The committee agreed to recede
from its proposed increase of the internal
revenue tax upon manufactured tobacco
from 0 cents a pound to 8 cents a po'iud.
There has been a great deal of opposi?
tion to this proposed increase It was
lead principally by Senator IMtchard,
the Republican Senator from North Car?
olina. He fought the Increase persist?
ently since the bill was reported from
the commit tee. Senator Pritchard told
his Republican colleague that the increase
would work great barm to the farmers of
North Carolina. Virginia, Tennessee and
Kentucky, as it would seriously nflect
the demand for tobacco.
Semuor Pritchnrd's opposition to the
amendment was urged upon every occa?
sion, and be did a great deal of hard
work to defeat It. He has never taken
the tight into the Senate, however, but
has conducted it earnestly with the com?
mittee and his brother Senators. A de?
cision was reached to make the rate on
cignrettes $2 per thousand on those ]
weighing less than three pounds per
thousand, and increasing the rate for
those of larger size.
EXCHANGE WEATHER REPORTS.
An important arrangement has been
concluded between the United States and
Mexico lor an exchange of weather
bureau reports. This Is an exceedingly
Important matter, and to both countries.
The United States is interested in secur
inn information cd' storms that come into
this country through Mexico, and Mexico
is especially anxious to get. advance in?
formation of low temperatures working
toward Mexican territory.
This question has long been the sub?
ject for correspondence between the two
conntries. and Is an exceedingly impor?
tant advance in the facilities afforded the
weather bureau for predicting storms
fro n the South. An effort will now be
made to secure some like arrangement l y
which information of storms in the West
IndiesYan be secured. The bureau now
has reports at irregular times from the
West Indies, where there are nine mete?
orological stations. But it is desired to
have a dally telegraphic report, such as
is received from stations in this country.
The West India service would cost about
$10,0110 per annum. The Mexican ser?
vice is secured with a cost of not over
$500, and possibly not more then$300 per
The Mexican system embraces stations
over the wdiole region of the country cov?
ered by the Mexican telegraphic service,
?vjth at least one station in lower Califor?
nia.six or the Mexican gulf coast and ppa
sibly six on the Pacific [coast. ^Those re?
ports will be delivered by "Mexico free to
this country, In exchange for which tho
United States service will twice a day de?
liver to Mexico the reports received from
stations in the southern half of Califor?
nia, Arizona, Now Mexico and tho gulf
States. The co operation arranged with
Mexico is similar to that now in opera?
tion between Canada and the United
States. The daily receipt of these addi?
tional reports will render less liable tho
unexpected approach of a destrucctivo
storm to our southern ports.

It grew rapidly,and
shooting pains ran
in every direction.
I became alarmed
and consulted a
good doctor, who
pronounced it can

a trial, and after I had taken it a few
days, the cancer became irritated and
began to discharge. This after awhile
ceased, leaving a small scab, which
finally dropped off, and only a healthy
little scar remained to mark the place
where the destroyer had held full sway.
