Added to the confinement, the beat and the impure air, there is often an . amount or phys ical exertion I which seems in- credible. In the manufacture of plush, for ex ample, those , who cut me pile have to walk ? about thirty .miles a day. 5 And with every ;Step of that 'thirty miles they breathe in vitiated air filled with particles of dust, poisonous coloriug matter and other sub stances, irritating to the throat and lungrs. It is no wonder that so many mill hands have an obstinate cough or that so many of thern die of "lung trouble." It is to operatives whose work makes them peculiarly liable to lun disease that Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis covery comes as a priceless boon. It posi tively cures deep seated and obstinate coughs, bronchial affections, bleeding of the lungs, and other diseases which if neglected lead to consumption. " When I commenced taking your medicines, eighteen months eito. my health was completely broken down." writes Mrs. Cor3 t,. Sunderland, of Chaneyville, Calvert Co., Md. "At times I could not even walk across the room, without pains in my chest. The doctor who attended me said I had lung trouble and that I wouid never be weil ajr-iin. At last I concluded to try Dr. F'erce's medicines, I bought a bottle of 'Golden Medical Lh.seovery,' took it, and moon commenced to feel a little better, then you directed me to take both the 'Golden Medical Discovery ' and tbe ' Favorite Prescription.' which I did. Alto gether I have taken eighteen bottles of ' Golden Medical Discovery,' twelve of the ' Favorite Pre scription,' and live vials of ' Pellets.' I am now almost entirely well, and do ail my work with out any pain whatever, and can rum with, more case than 1 eor.ld formerly twa;'."

Shows Satisfactory Results in First , Trial Tests. New Tork, April 13. Remarkable results have been attaiwd with the latest model 6-inch gun, the test of which is in prog ress at the Indian Head proving grounds, according to dispatches from W ashington. Rear Admiral O'Neil. chief of ordnance, has been informed by Lieut. Straus, in charge of the proving grounds, that the gun has developed a maximum, velocity of 3.2.10 feet a second with less than 17 tons pressure.' This velocity was given to a E-pounl projectile. The great superiority of the new weapon over tiie 5-inch gun on the Kearsarge will be understood when it is known that the maximum velocity attained with a 60 pound projectile hred by the hitter is 2, 550 feet a second. With a impound shell a. velocity of 2,!y0 feet a second has been attained with the latest model. The muz zle energy obtained was 3.724 foot tons. In the recent trials with the SO-pound pro jectile a muzzle energy of 3. SIS foot tons was obtained. Rear Admiral O'Neil has determined: to use the 60-pound projectile. TREJmXDOUS CRASH.

We are willing to drop the 220 yard hurdles, the pole vault and shot put." The annual dual games between Tale and Harvard track teams will be held in this city on May 11. The place and date has just been settled. . GOTHAM MUST HUSTLE. Inland Cities Handle Their Own Com mercial Paper Now. New Tork, April 13. The Journal of Commerce says: An important development resulting from the business activity and prosper ity of the last few years is the decided change which has taken place in the methods of handling commercial paper. It is estimated on reliable data that the volume of commercial paper discounted in New York through the leading note brokers ranges between $5,000,000 aivl $6,000,000 annually. Formerly a larg amount of paper of out of town houses was sent to New York for sale. One of the foremost authorities on commercial paper in this market sail last night: "The plethora of money in the inter ior cities and the enormous line of de posits -which the banks of these cities hold prevented large lines of paper which formerly came to New York for discount at low rates from coming to this market, because the banks in the interior have come down in their rates to meet the New York rates and are purchasing paper direct in their own ter ritory at New Tork rates, notably so in cities like Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, Omaha, Denver, Detroit, St. Paul, and Minneapolis. "This dearth of paper haa naturally made all of the note brokers more active than ever. The dearth of paper ha3 also had another effect, it has caused the note brokers to go to the smaller class of con cerns throughout- the country soliciting their business at lower rates than they have been in the ha.bit of paying to other local institutions. This in turn has taken away a great deal of investment from the local Institutions, and thrown them into the security market. Banks that are not buyers of commercial paper, and are not in the position to buy commercial paper, have been compelled to seek the security market where a large volume of securities have naturally been absorbed in this way. Tlie southern banks have been exceedingly prosperous, showing enormous increases in deposits. The south is in a very prosper ous condition generally. Acreage lands in certain sections have nearly doubled In value during the last three yearss, notably ao in the state of Texas." wj-F 'iwA&K. ?ri! & ,: - - -- . 'w.

In the encounter with the detectives yesterday Wright was shot three times, but none of the wounds is fatal. Wright says he is a shoemaker by trade and that he came from Chicago.
