Try IWho will doubt the wonderful efficacy of Paine's celery compound in the face of the following endorsement from the Bishop of the diocese of Burlington? .Wells. Richardson & Co.. Gentlemen: I have been, asked why I recommend Paine's celery compound and I desire to put on record franJUy my reasons for this endorsement, hop ing that my words may inspire those readers, who need health and strength, with faith to try Paine's celery com pound and prove to themselves its worth. At the Fanny Allen Hospital, an in stitution in which I am deeply interested Paine's celery compound has been used successfully. The Sisters of Mercy at Mount St. Mary's Academy on Mansfield Ave-, rely upon Paine's celery compound as a tonic and strength-giver. In my own household, one of the do mestics has taken Paine's celery com pound for liver trouble of long standing and says, "It has done more good than any other medicine." Several priests have spoken to me in praise of this remedy, and I believe it has the confidence of my associates. Even did I not know from personal observation of the worth of Paine's celery compound, I should feel like praising it for the simple reason that it is prepared by the Wells & Richardson Co., a firm whose members I have known for nearly a quarter of a cen tury, and in whom I have perfect con fidence. Very trulv, JOHN S. MICHATJD. Coadjutor Bishop of Burlington, Vt. Father Michaud, one of the ablest priests of the Roman Catholic church in America, was consecrated Coadjutor Bishop of Burlington in 1892 by the Most Reverend John T. Williams, D. D., Archbishop of Boston, assisted by Rt. Rev. D. Bradley and Rt. Rev. H. Gabriels, D. D. The diocese then con tained 87 churches, 64 priests, 15 con vents, one college, 6 academies, one orphanagje, two hospitals, 18 parochial schools, and a Catholic population of 55.000. Father Michaud built the Provi dence Orphan Asylum, a, commanding structure that Is the source of much pride, the Fanny Allen Hospital at Burlington, and a church which is con sidered the finest in the state. His kind-hearted desire to be of ser vice to the people and the great sin cerity that breathes through every line of Bishop Michaud's recommendation of Paine's celery compound ought to leave no doubt in anyone's mind of the tre mendous superiority of Paine's celery compound over all the remedies that have recently been clamoring for atten tion. Paine's celery compound will make you well, and enable you to stay so! The system strengthened, purified and regulated by this greatest of remedies will resist all invasion of disease! There is no household that can afford to be without it. Its praises have been sounded by men and women in every walk of life by the wealthiest, the most famous, and by the humblest, but equally grateful. Paine's celery compound is within the reach of every one. It is a simple mat ter to test its astonishing efficacy. CAFFERY MUST EXPLAIN. Personal Attack on Senator Lodge in One Atkinson Pamphlet. Washington, D. C. May 6. Through the lavor of free publication extended to Kd ward Atkinson's seditious pamphlets, the senate finds itself in the embarrassing po sition of giving circulation to a scandal ous attack upon one of its own members. Senator CaftVry obtained the order to print under one of the loose rules. An as tonishing feature of Senator Carterv s per formance is that he should have permit ted himself to be used for the purpose of placing on the senate records a personal attack on a fellow senator. In the course of his essay on 'Criminal Aggression" Mr. Atkinson goes out of his wav to say: 'I claim no more foresight than any other man of common sense, but when the danger of war was disclosed I sent for these documents and I have secured the printing of these details In a senate docu ment which Senator Lodge tried to stop on the ground of saving the expense of printing treatises by private persons. He was olliged to withdraw his obler-tion hen Senator Jones of Arkansas insisted on the record being made. You mav con trast, if you please, the elements of poli tics and patriotism in the acts and speeches of the senior and junior senators of Massachusetts. Choose, then, who hon ors or dishonors the state." Had any other senator than Caffery been aware of the presence of such a passage s this in the document for publication of which unanimous consent was asked, ob jection would have been made instantly, and it is thought inconceivable here that Caffery himself could have been aware of the passage when he asked to hve the pamphlet printed at government expense, when Senator Jones made his orfelnal re quest, on January 27. Senator Lodge, as chairman of the printing committee, very properly took exception to insertine the Atkinson literature in the Congresplonal Record, on the ground that it wa a rep rehensible practice to involve the govern ment in great expenditure by printing long pamphlets in the record so that thev might be sent through the mails free. He withdrew his objection because Jones threatened to read the pamphlet, and to have done this would have taken up valu able time near the close of congress. Caf fery will be called on to explain his con duct when the senate meets again. 21 Meals $&25.' -Bote Oxford and Restaurant. FRANK LONG, Manager. PICTORIAL HISTORY. War Department Deluged With War Pictures. Washington, May 6. There must have been a3 many pictures' taken during the war with Spain as there were s"hots fired. The bureau of the war department which is engaged in making a pictorial history of the war Is simply deluged with photo graphs. I'p to the present time Captain Scherer, who has this work in charge, has received or been promised about 8.000 pictures re lating to the Santiago campaign alone. He believes that he will have as many more from the Philippines, while the oc cupation of Cuba has been pictured in at least 5.1100 different ways. The pictures are sent in response to a general invita tion from the war department to all ama teur and professional photographers to loan their negatives or prints to the de partment for the purpose of selecting such subjt-cts as will tend to make the proposed collection of greatest value. "We cannot begin to use a tenth of all the pictures that have been sent to us." said Captain Scherer today. "The story of the Santiago campaign will be told in about 600 photographs, beginning with the training of recruits for the armv and ending with Montauk Point and the mus tering out of the troops in various cities, with illustrations of the welcome given to the soldiers on their return. As vou can imagine, the photographs come to us in all sizes and shapes, but we have arranged a plan by which- when they are placed in the final album they will all be of the same size, about Tx&H inches. We enlarge the miniature pictures which come to us. remedy the defects which mav be appar ent, and then rephotograph the enlarged print down to the proper size. Each pic ture, when it is placed in the collection, will have its general subject, its individ ual title and the name of the donor at tached. The scenes will run In chrono logical order, including mustering in of troops, camp life at Chickamauga. the Journey to Tampa, loading on transports the sail to Cuba, the landing at Raiquiri. the taking of Santiago. the triumphal march of the soldiers into that citv and finally, as I have said, Montauk Point and the mustering out of various regiments." "Are any of the pictures-unique?" "If you mean freaks, I would answer in the negative. We have many ot great value, but all of them are straight goods. I received one batch todav which gave a panorama of a Cuban funeral, from the ' time that the corpse was placed In the coffin until it was dumped out into the grave. The series is intensely interest ing, but. of course, has no place in a pic torial history of the war." It is estimated that it will take about four months to recopy and mount the 600 pictures which are to be selected out of the thousands which have already been offered. Pneumonia, la grippe, coughs, colds, croup, and whooping cough readily yield to One Minute Cough Cure. Use this remedy in time and save a doctor's bill or the undertaker's. Geo. W Stansfield, W. H.

New Tork, May 6. R. G. Dun & Co., in their Weekly Review of Trade say: The failures inApril were the smallest in any month since records by months began, 38 per cent smaller than in April of last year, not a third of the amount in 1897, and not half the amount of April of any previous year. Both in manufacturing and in trading they were the smallest ever known in that month and "in trading the smallest ever known in any month, as in manufac turing they were if the larger failures were omitted. The ratio of defaulted liabilities to solvent payments through clearing houses was less than 70 cents per $1,000 against 90 cents in January and $1.19 in March, $7.89 In August, and $8.02 in September. 1896. A great share of the risk in the business world has been eliminated. It is not inconsistent nor strange if business halts, because it has been crowded to the utmost for four months in anticipating future needs on account of new combinations proposed. In some cases prices have been advanced so far as to check new business and in others works have been engaged so far ahead that new orders can not be taken. Yet new business in amount which would have been astonishing two years ago is still coming forward, and the voluntary advance in wages by the firms of the central association and by the Frick coke works, whose shipments in April, 30.452 cars, were the heaviest ever known, show confidence in the future. At Buffalo, and in Idaho strikes are causing trouble, but labor questions elsewhere do not affect general busi ness. The grain movement has fallen off, only 2,464.148 bushels having been re ceived at the west during the week, against 4.765.519 bushels last year and of corn only 2.62.41i bushels have been exported, against 4.545,749 bushels last year, while wheat exports from both coasts have been better 3.545,706 bush els, flour ' included, against 2,654,237 bushels last year. Nearly all iron works are crowded for months ahead, but a good many are catching up with their orders, which have recently diminished. The report that all the great com panies are to be melted into one influ ences the stock market, but is still scarcely credited, and the raising of foreign prices where American compe tition is no longer felt, is suggestive. Pig is nowhere higher, nor has any class of finished products established higher prices, though in many the de mand exceeds supplies. London specu lation made a higher price for tin at $25.85, although Atlantic receipts in April, 5.105 tons, were the largest on record, and copper is stronger at $19.25 for lake, although European stocks are rising. Shipments of boots and shoes from the east in five weeks have been but 14.8 per cent larger than last year, 14 per cent larger than in the next largest year. 1S95, and 44 per cent larger than in 1892. Factories are busy with orders for months at old prices, and 2V2 cents advance is paid on new orders for several grades. But the only change in leather Is a small ad vance in union sole and hides are half of one per cent stronger at Chicago. Wool sales for the week have been larger 8,859.853 pounds, owing to sales of over a million pounds Australian in bond for export, and heavy speculative purchases of territory. The wool year ends with heavy stocks on hand and prices about 10 per cent lower than last year, British prices averaging about 11 per cent higher for Australian fine but about 10 per cent lower for English and cross-bred wools. Sales of domestic wool in four months have been 83,593,735 pounds, more than in any year except ing 1897, when speculators were taking in the heavy stocks which some of them have recently been selling at a loss, but sales of foreign have been 31. 725.S03 pounds for the year, against 93. 264,350 pounds in that year. The market in goods is a little stronger, with an ad vance in clay mixtures, but in general is waiting for the outcome of new com binations and about some of these there is still doubt whether -they will be completed. The worsted combina tion has gone into operation, but with out interfering with deliveries of goods under previous orders. The cotton goods market is the more steady be cause some strikes still limit produc tion a little, but is quite encouraging and active. and in some staples has fur ther advanced. Failures for the week have been 158 in the United States, against 238 last year and 23 in Canada, against 25 last year. MIS FIRST W IFE'S GHOST. Why the Second Mrs. Rivenburg Asks For a Divorce From Her Husband. Albany, N. Y., May S. Because she fan cies that she saw the ghost of her hus band's first wife. Mrs. Anna C. Rivenburg of Preston Hollow demands a. separation from her husband, with a stipulated al lowance. She declares that the wraith of the for mer Mrs. Rivenburg made a wild nightly tour of the Rivenburg household, wept and wailed, banged doors and generally upset the mental poise of her successor. A score of witnesses have testified that Mrs. Rivenburg complained that while her husband, Eliaa Rivenburg. a prosperous farmer, was a fairly good spouse, she could not endure his iffmtom consort. Her husband's attorneys "enter the plea that her complaint is an intangible one and should not stand a ghost of a chance in court. The case is in the hands of City Judge George Addington as referee. One hearing has been had at Preston Hollow, where neighbors for many miles around attended the court and shivered and gravely shook their heads when testimony concerning the ghost was brought out. The next hearing is set for May 12 in Albany.

Frank Long, who lives near Lennon, Mich., says : " On starting to get up from the dinner table, I was taken with a pain in my back. The pain increased and I was obliged to take to my bed. The physician pronounced my ease muscular rheumatism accompanied by lumbago. " My disease gradually became worse until I thought that death would be welcome release from ray sufferiugs. " I was finally induced to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. I took the pills according to directions and soon began to notice an improvement in my condition.

Goldsmith, Jutliee of the Peace. Edwin K. Tripp. Postmaster of Middlefield Centre, N. Y., said: "In March, 1892, I was attacked by what I afterwards learned was loco motor ataxia. Two skillful doctors did every thing they could for me. I steadily became worse. Was unable to dress myself. "Later I could not move even about the room, but was carried in my chair. I gave up hope. The doctors gave me no encouragement. I did not expect to live very long. I was mora helpless thau a baby. " In June the tide turned. " The taming point was a newspaper article. - " It told how a man, who suffered as I had suffered, had been cured by Dr.Willis.nis' Pink Pills for Pale People. "It gave me faith and hope. I took two boxes of the pills; then four more boxes. "My gain was steady; my return to health was a source of daily gratification. " In all I took eighteen boxes of the pills be fore I was entirely well. At first I paid 50 cents a box, but afterwards I saved money by getting six boxes at a time, paying $2.50.
