-CHAIRMAN Barnum, of the
National Democratic Committee, in
an interview .says : "I have travel

EXPOSITION EXTENSION.
A very earnest and capable body
of citizens assembled at the Saint
Charles hotel last night to consider
the feasibility of continuing the
Grand World's Fair through an
f other Winter. It was a thoroughly
representative gathering, and each
r member presentseemed to fully ap
preciate the vast benefits which the
project in hand promises for the
South, and especially and immedi
ately to New Orleans.
There are two hinges to the plan :
the first, the consent of the Presi
dent to a retention here of the gov
ernment exhibits; the second, the
raising of a round sum of money to
preserve and in a measure refit the
i Exposition itself. No doubt exists
in the minds of those who have
most carafully investigated the
question, that the money will be
speedily obtained-whether the sum
he finally set at a quarter of a mil
lion, or more or less - provided
President Cleveland acts favorably.
This the Item thinks he will do, on
the broad national ground that no
where else could this grand collec
tion of art. science,.natural products
and historical objects do so much
good for the masses of the people,
who most need the instruction and
advantages to be derived therefrom.
It was apparently well under
stood that the new fund to be raised
. is to be exclusively applied to
3 maintaining the World's Fair. of
the future, and in no way to be
s used for debts of the present term
- of its existence. Also, that if the
subscribers to the new fund so de
sire, the management is to be re
s modeled and, better confidence in
spired therein by fresh blood.
It is a most desirable end that is
S aimed-the greatest that this corn
s munity can give time and money
1 in aid of. We hope, therefore, that
f politics and personali'ies. will be
excluded from the deliberations,
and a strong and united effort made
, for the success of the main great
l- purpose.-[New Orleans City Item

A iLady's Opinion.
Mrs. Geo. Gilbert, Bryan, 0., writes:
DR. S. B. HARTMAN & Co., Colum
bus, Ohio: "I commenced on the fifth
bottle of your PERUNA this morning,
and should just as soon think of doing
without my meals as without my medi
cine.' I-have bten doctoring for about
four yga~-s, and kept getting worse.all
the time, and was just giving. up in de
spair w!hen I got one of ybur books,
" The Uls of Life." I was in bed at
the time. I read pond, re-read your
book and felt like trying your medi-'
'ine. My folks- thought there was no
use in trying anything more; I was too
far gone, and might as well make up
my mind tode . I'told them PERUN!
was the medicine I. needed, and I in
tended to try a bottle. It proved a
success in breakinglthe chills, and if it
had not done one thing more, I would
have been satisflied. But it has dope
IMore, and I feel like another person.
Every body that, sees me is surprised to;
see me looking so well, as they all
thought I was dying with ccnsumption,
and now my own folks have as mdelh
to say for.the PERUNA as I. I reconm
mend it to everybody I see. T'here
were two of our, neighbors in yesterday
inquiring about the PERUNA. I gave
the dne my book to read; told her to
bring it back, as I prised it very highly;
The other got the name ofthe PVs..uN
to send to his son in Chicago. He is a
telegraph operator. " My disease is
something stumilar to Mrs. M1ilo In
gram's, though nothing compared to
being so: bad. There was n, lump
raised on my csllar, bone, and it was a
long time before it looked like opening.
The doctor said ihe would have to lance
it in a few days, but I thought I would
attend to that myself, so I put a little
fly blister:0n it and it opened; then I
put a poultice on. and then salve, and
Skept ihe salve on all the time. It got
so bad and spread upon my left
shoulder and one placo tlnmdrny left
breast. 'Then there were two places on
my head, onenear the temple and one
back of my ear1 thatwas jlust dreadful
-. No tongue can tell what .I suffered.
My head felt so' strange sometimei II:
thought I.,was going crazy.- Since I.
1 have used.the PaRUxA (I don't use ,te
.salve any more) my sores healed up
3 right as~y. And oh!. what a relief it
isto get aroundi withpout chilling ond
having to suffer with i my sores. I feel
,like letting everybody, know all aboat-"
