While the Government wishes lt un derstood that Krance is closely lnterested ln the matter they In no way desire to ussurae an attl? tude of hostility toward England. It waa necessary that France should clearly define her attltude at the outset, and. in vi<-w ftf the frlendly relations recently established wlth England, the Government was of the opin lon that frank language would be the most llkely to remove any possible mlsunrlerstandlng th&t mlght arise.

JOHN P0LHEMU5 PRINTINO COflPANY, Prlnters, Stationers, and Law Blank Publishers, 121 Fulton and 48 Ann Streets. NEW YORK, March 3, W6. Dear Sir:? To say that your " Hyomei " is a God-send is putting it very mildly. I nevtr haop put much faith in patent medicines, but when Congressman Wilson of Brooklyn ex plained to mc the bencfits that he and hisfamily had derivcd from the use of'Hyomcift I thought I would give it a trial. ' I tell you, sir, it is a wonderful discovery. I suffered a long time with a bronchial ajfection which neccssitated a constant haivking, and for a man in my position, being constantly brought into contact witk ladies andgcntlemen, it was very annoying. Since I have used the little inhaler I have been a new man. I have pulled through this entire winter without the slightest cold, and my throat never bothers me. I smoke a great deal, and before I used th* "Hyomei" the smoke seemed to aggravate the haivking, but noxv, after smokinga cigar, I pul the little inhaler into ' my mouth for a few moments, iuhaliug its wonderful qualities, and no symptoms of hawkiug or rawness in the throat appear. I considcr it the greatest boon ever invenled or discovcred. Yours very truly, (Signed) M. J. TOBIX.
