"A' year ago I was a wreck from cof ifee drinking and was on the point of giving up my position in the school room because of my excessive nervous jness. "I was telling1 a friend about it and ahe said, 'we drink nothing; at meal time but Postum Food Coffee, and it is such a comfort to have something we can en Joy drinking with the children. "I was astonished that she would sj low the children to drink any kind of coffee, but she said Postum was the most healthful drink In the world for children aa well as for older ones, and that the condition of both the children and adults showed that to be a fact, "Just a little thought convinced me that one Khould not take a stimulant such as coffee, but really should have the best food to nourish the brain and nerves, and that nourishment was found in Postum. "My first trial was a failure. The cook boiled it four or five minutes and it tasted so fiat that I was in despair but determined to give It one more trial. This time we fallowed the directions and boiled it fifteen minutes after the boiling began. It was a decided success and I was completely won by its rich, delicious flavor. In a short time I noticed a. decided improvement in my condition and kept growing better and better month after month, until now I am perfectly heaitay, and do my work in the school room with ease and pleas ure. I would not return to the nerve destroyinx regular coffee for any eauoey.' fi. Scutl. iWarrensburg, Ua m 1 WHEELS STOP.

American federation of Labor Would Affiliate With Island Brethren. Louisville, Ky., Dec. 12. The first matter of importance taken up at the morning session of the American Fed eration of Labor convention was the third clause of the resolutions with-reference to. the labor unions of Porto Rico. Upon this matter the convention adopt ed a declaration recommending to all affiliated unions whose trade xr calling is pursued in Porto Rico, that they take prompt action for the purpose of dis seminating information in Porto Rico necessary to give the Porto Ricans op portunity to become allied with na tion or international trade associations in America. It was also recommended that the American national unions have their constitutions translated into the Spanish language; and that the in coming executive council of the Ameri can Federation of Labor take action promptly to carry out the plans and purposes of the American labor move ment in Porto Rico, appropriating $3,000 to carry this resolution into effect. The convention concurred in resolu tions previously presented, declaring un alterable opposition to the "anti-scaip-ing" bill, now before the committee on foreign and interstate commerce in both houses of congress. An animated discussion arose over a resolution for a labor portfolio in the cabinet, upon which the committee re ported adversely. The original resolu tion was as follows: "Whereas, The experience of the past shows the practicable impossibility of obtaining adequate labor legislation without official governmental standing; therefore, be it "Resolved, That it is the sense of this convention that a governmental depart ment of labor should be formed, the head of which should have a place in the cab inet of the president of the United States, and be it further "Resolved, That said cabinet officer should be a bonaflde trade unionist. "And, further, that the incoming ex ecutive board shall have power to act as to them seems best in furthering' the objects of this resolution." Vice President Duncan opposed the resolutions on the ground that the dis tinct stipulation for a bonafide trade unionist would prove a source of weak ness and probably defeat the purpose of the convention in framing this meas ure. Delegate Max Hayes of Cleveland, in defending the resolutions, made a point of the fact that a member of the French cabinet, M. Milleraud, was, he alleged, a trade unionist. Delegate Ajjard of St, Louis opposed the resolutions as pre sented. Delegate Turnsette of San Francisco opposed the recommendation that a cab inet officer be taken from any particular class of society, on the ground that the American form of government is not the parliamentary form, and that the cabinet members are the personal ad visers of the president. Delegate Warner of New York said his experience had not led him to put much confidence in the average labor repre sentative in places of trust and responsi bility in some of the state governments. "I would sooner see Mark Hanna," he said, "representing our interests than some of the labor representatives who hold positions in some states." Treasurer James B. Lennon of Bloom ington, 111., said he hoped to see the time when a trade unionist would be president of the United States, but he opposed the adoption of. the resolution as prescribing too narrow boundaries for the appointment of a cabinet officer. The adverse report of the committee was concurred in by a vote of 7S to 47, thus killing the resolutions. K ORTII TOPEKA.

Sad Ending of Ex-Confederate Brig adier General. New York, Dec. 12. The body of Con federate Brigadier-General Herman Bins has been found in Black Swamp, four miles from Morristown, N. J. He was known as the hermit of Wanong moun tain. For thirty-five years Bins had lived a solitary life on the side of Suc casunna mountain. He had little to do with any one, and his retreat was far removed from the nearest house. His cabin was found In ashes by those who w ent to it after the body had been iden tified. Bins made his appearance on the mountain in 1865. When he first came he wore a gray uniform and on it were the stars of a brigadier general. Ten years after Bins settled on the mountain his life story came out through no fault of his. William Becker, a veteran of the Union army, who had occasion to visit A-tlanta in 1S75, com menced an investigation and found from the Confederate records that Herman Bins had enlisted as a minor officer soon after Sumter was fired upon. He rose rapidly and at the close of the war had the rank of brigadier. At the outbreak of the war Bins was a well-to-do planter in middle Georgia. While he was in the army his two chil dren died. When Sherman marched to the sea, cutting a gap through Georgia, and leaving desolation behind, Bins' home was one of the places of which nothing remained but ashes. Mrs. Bins had fled before the arrival of Sherman and joined the refugees. Exposure and hardship brought her to her death. When he returned to his plantation he found the ashes of his home, the graves ot his children and near them the grave of his wife, whom faithful slaves had carried to' the plantation and buried. General Bins at once left and until Mr. Becker informed them his friends did not know what had become of him. No one knows how the old man came to his death. SAYS IT IS SOLVED. German Ambassador Discusses the Chinese Question. New York, Dec. 12. A special to the World from Washington, D. C, says: Herr von Holleben, the imperial Ger man ambassador, discussing the Chi nese situation, said: "The Chinese question, so far as vital issues are concerned, may be treated as solved. The work of the powers in China is now one of detail. Contro. versial elements and units must be grouped and administrative functions must be made secure. Granting the postulate that Chinese integrity must be preserved, there is nothing left of the Chinese situation but careful labor to ascertain the relative rights of all par ties concerned. "The vital questions from this time will be the disposition of the various treaty rights and concessions. Germany stands for open ports and free access to the Oriental trade. If new treaties are negotiated individually by the powers with China or collectively by the con gress of ministers now in session at Pekin other questions of detail and administration may obtrude themselves. "In this connection each power will carefully scrutinize the situation for its own interest. There is no reason, how ever, to ajprehend any disagreemnet. So far as the relations of Germany and the United States are concerned, it is only to be said that they could not be more cordial. The freedom of trade and intercourse in the Philipipnes. encour aged by the United States under the difficulties at present existing, are an exceptional guarantee . and example against unwise seinshness throughout the Orient. "The sentiment so carefully fostered by certain interests that Germany is hostile to American progress or trade is to be regretted. "The two countries have similar poli cies of protection to domestic indus tries and prosperity. In detail these in terests may some times clash. Various regulations of the customs and lm port laws of the United States weigh heavily upon German commerce. Ameri cans held that the German laws regu lating the importation of meats to Ger many are detrimental of their advan tage. These are the necessary se quences of kindred policies. "On the other hand, the parcels post facilities, the desire to maintain the German steamship lines profitably and a kindly German desire to trade with the United States make the Atlantic commerce between the countries prac tically reciprocal. In such circum stances mischievous attempts to preju dice public opinion may be ignored. The trade world is not sentimental. It un derstands relative situations." RACING PRO PERT S SOLD.

FEAR THE UNITED STATES. South American Republics Will TJnite Against American Influence. New York, Dec. 12. A dispatch to the Herald from San Juan, P. R., says: It is reported here that the republics of South America are negotiating an alliance, having been prompted to do so by the fear that American influence will become paramount In the western hemisphere. The movement Is said to be an outgrowth of the Ibero-American congress recently held in Madrid. The executive council has decided that franchise matters hereafter will be considered in secret session. Ihis de cision has occasioned much adverse comment, ARGENTINE FLOUR DUTIES. Report That American Minister Has Asked That It Be Increased. New York, Dec. 12. A dispatch to the Herald from Buenos Ayres says: A sensation has been caused here by a report that -the American minister at Rio Janeiro has requested the Bra zilian government to increase the duty on Argentine flour. The .Argentine exporters have sent a telegram to the' Argentine minster at Rio, requesting his interference to pre vent the realization of the supposed American scheme. Garcia Merou, the minister of agricul ture and former minister at Washing ton, says that Argentine flour is better than American, and he hast no fear of its competition. IN SELF DEFENSE. Minister Wu Refers to Bis Lecture at Carnegie Institute. Philadelphia, Dec. 12. Wu Ting Fang, who came here to deliver an address be fore the Contemporary club, made a statemrnt in regard to his address be fore the Ethical Culture society in New York last Sunday on Confucius, com ments upon which have since been printed, in which he says: "I am afraid the scope of my address delivered at New York last Sunday at Carnegie hall is not made clear by the reports published in the papers. It was far from my intention to make any at tack on any religion whatever in the world, much less on Christianity. My theme was Confucius. The doctrines of Confucius are Imperfectly understood in tnis country by people, ana my iasa was to make clear in as succinct a man ner as possible, without taking too much time, the cardinal points of Con fucianism. In order to make it clear to an American audience, I chose the. best form of religion and that is Christian! ty. which was well known in this coun try and which is considered the highest form of religion ever known, to be the standard by which comparison can be made, and I tried to compare the doc trine of Confucianism with the superior form of religion. It was not my inten tion to make an attack on Christianity. Taking that as the standard, instead of being considered as an attack, it should, be as a comDliment. I wanted to com pare on what points Confucius could come up to the standard of Christianity and if the full text of my address was published, this would be clear to tne reader; but unfortunately I have not seen a full account of it in any of the papers containing my speech. I espe cially stated that some of the senti ments of Christ were very noble and Brand, so much so that it was very diffi cult for men to attain to them, and I quoted some of the sayings of Confucius to show that Confucius, though not up to so high a standard as that of Christi anity, was a practical man. He was preaching his doctrine to his country men and inculcating in them to tollow his advice in a practical way and he himself set an example of his doctrine. And it is true that I said that some of the Christian people, or people profes sing Christianity, did not act up to the tenets of Christianity. That is not the fault of Christianity but the fault of those in not following the tenets of their religion. That surely can not be con sidered an attack on Christianity. "I have been reading portions of the Bible and have the greatest respect for it, said I appreciate the Bible, and great ly respect Christianity, and I have never in my lire made any attack on Christi anity. I may have said that some of the doctrines are too grand and too elevated for man to follow, but that, instead of an adverse criticism, is in praise of the high standard of that creed. I hope that the clergymen and missionaries will not come to any conclusion by reading the Incomplete reports published in tee papers." The gallaries of the Art club were crowded last night by invited guests of the Contemporary club to hear Min ister Wu deliver an address entitled "The Chinese View." He was cordially received. In his address' Mr. Wu dwelt upon the five cardinal relations of man kind as seen by the Chinese nation. He drew many interesting as well as amus ing comparisons between the customs of his own and of the American people After speaking of the great age of the Chinese nation, Minister Wu said: "Let us inquire into the cause or rather combination of causes, namely, the five cardinal relations of mankind. That is to say first, between sovereign and ministers and subjects; second, be tween parent and child; third, between elder and younger or between superior and inferior; fourth, the -husband and wile, and last, between friend and friend. In the first case the attribute is benevolence on the part of the sov ereign and respect on the part of the subject. In the second relation the par ent must be kind and the child obedient. Between the elder and the younger there must be respect on the part of Uie lat ter. Concerning the fourth relation righteousness is the husband's attrib ute, while submission is the duty of the wife. The duty of friends is to be faithful and truthful." The speaker expanded on each of the five relations, giving the result of their special application In China and his view of corresponding relations In Amer ica, He spoke particularly o the sec ond relation, saying that in America it was customary for the son to sit in the presence of the father. If my son should sit in my presence," jocularlv de clared the minister, "I would punch his head. In conclusion Mr. Wu said: "Although our civilization is not per fect, yet it has stood the test of years well and the nation still exists. Of course in many respects the-custorns and manners of your country and my coun try are different, but there are pood points in each. I think if each of us could learn the other's good features and profit by them it would be well. We must understand each other better, for much of the present trouble has arisen from misunderstanding. What you think is right we may think wron. Therefore, it is important that we Judge not from our standpoint but from the other's point of view. In our country we are gvided by duty; in yours love is the guiding principle. I think we would be more happy if we could strike a me dium." LOCAL TAUPE YILLE. Thespian Dramatic Club Gives an In teresting Show.
