Our Vfnol is the Remedy for all Pulmonary Affections "Vinol is a preparation that is de licious to take.

Following" is a letter which has just come to hand and whioh shows how bene Icially Vinol acted in one instance: " I had a severe cough of long stand ing. I was advised by friends to give \ our Vinol a trial, which I did. Before taking it I had tried many other reme dies for coughs without obtaining any relief. With Vinol it was different. I have now used four bottles of it, and am pleased to say my cough has almost entirely left me. 1 have been decidedly benefited by its use in every way. Very truly yours."—H. E. Smaxl, Boston, Mass.

Washington, April 24. — Seventy-six thousand men will comprise the army of the United States. The decision to place the strength of the military arm at one soldier for every 1,000 citizens, as rec ommended by .Lieutenant General Nelsos A. Miles, was announced by Seeretarj Hoot yesterday. The men will be distributed thus if the recommendations of General Miles are adopted: Philip pines, 30.000; United States, 40,000; Cuba, 0,000; Porto Rico and Hawaii, 1,000. Under General Miles' plan the army will he thus distributed among the three arms: Infantry, 38,440; artillery, 18JU2; cavalry. 15,300; hospital corps, engineer battalion, etc., 3,344. The strength of tie infantry company will remain 104, as at present. A troop of cavalry, now 100 men. will be reduced to 85; a battery of field artillery will con sist Of 160 men, and a battery of coast ar tillery 109 men. PraStlcally all of the artillery \viJl be etatloned in the United States, together with at least twenty-one home regiments, consisting of infantry and cavalry. It is the purpose of the department to "withdraw the regiment of artillery now at Havana. A couple of batteries now in the United States will be sent to Ha vana to take its place. This will be a slight reduction in the American forces in Cuba, which will be followed by further ■withdrawals in the future. KLEANSALL Kleansall. Kleansall. Kleansall.

JDST IN FROM NOME First Man Out From Oold Fields Since Nov. 8, 1900. TRAVELS 1,400 MILES OVER ICE Reports Many Ken Striken by Win ter Prottpeetora and Generally Satiafactory Condition*. Special to The Journal. Tacoma, Wash, April 24.—Captain Rus tan Nelson has arrived from Nome. He is the first to come out since the close of Bering sea navigation last November. He came via the Katmia overland route and the steamer Excelsior. Over 3,000 miles of land and water travel were cov ered by the traveler. His course lay over ice and snow for more than 1,400 miles. Captain Nelson came out especially for the delivery of advices for the Wild Goose Mining company. He was over three months on the trip. He left Nome Jan. 11, ten days prior to the de parture of the last mail, which reached Puget Sound by the Yukon route a fort night ago. His voyage involved in numerable hardships and dangers. Leaving Nome, he proceeded to Una laklik, following the shore of Norton sound' for 240 miles. At Unalakik he met the first mail party, which left Skagway Nov. 2. This was four days in advance of the national election, but three weeks later, when the expedition was at Fort Eg-bert, on the Yukon, a dispatch was re ceived announcing McKinley's election. This information was brought to Unalak lik by the mail carriers. Prospectorx at Good Xews Bay. Thirty mile£ west of Good News bay Captain Nelson found a beaching schoon er whose name he does not recall; but from which nine white men were sys tematically prospecting the surrounding country for- placer gold. Despite the fact that they claimed to have made rich dis coveries, Captain Nelson says he does not believe there is any pay gold in that sec tion. He saw neither gold nor evidences of it in the Good News bay regiod. It was March 16 when Captain Nelson reached Katmai. The last several hun dred miles of the journey he made without his dogs, which be left at Sevansky, owing to the fact hat he could not find food for them over the final 300 miles. At Katmai he procured the services of two Aleut Indians and crossed Shilikoff strait in a vidaska to Kodiak. Though the strait proper at this point is but seven miles wide, they were eleven days in reaching Kodiak, which as the crow flies is probably not over fifty miles distant. The vidaska voyage was, the captain 3ays, the most dangerous of his 3,000 miles of travel. Day after day the storm threat ened to swamp them. Indeed, in the very middle of the strait, the Indians brought the vidaska to a standstill, held a con sultation and determined to proceed only after the most urgent urging of their pas senger. As the storm increased in fury they would discontinue the use of their paddles, seemingly consigning themselves to the will of the elements. March 27 the vidaski brought up in the harbor of Kodiak, where Captain Nelson caught the steamer Excelsior for Seattle. Stampede™ Out of Luck. Captain Nelson passed many fortune seekers in the vicinity of Unalaklik bound to and from the Xuskokwim placer diggings which, he is inclined to believe, exist only in the imagination of some vis onai-y prospector. He says in all the num ber he encountered he saw'no one who had been able to find Yellow river, the tributary of the Upper Ko&kokwim, on which the discoveries are said to have been made. Twenty-five miles below An drafsky he met three Koskokwim stam peders who had suffered misfortune. One had ttis hands and feet frozen, another his hands frozen and the feet of the tihird of the trio were frost bitten. They were in a pitiable condition, and their friends had dispatched a messenger to Nome with the request that a relief expedition be sent. The unfortunates declined Abso lutely to give.Capt. Nelson their-names, saying that they did not wish the news of their misfortunes to reach their friends in the east. Captain Nelson says the general condi tions at Nome could hardly be more en couraging. New strikes were being made by winter prospectors. On Newton gulch, a tributary of Dry creek, $23 to the pan had been found, and very startling reports as to the richness' of the streams were coming in from the Bluestone district when he left. A man named Kenner pur chased a Bluestone claim for $300 and within ten daya sold the property for $10,000 cash. The general health and order of Nome, Captain Nelson says, could hardly have been better. Owing to internal "dissen sions, the Nome Chamber of Commerce passed out of exist&nce as a municipal body in December. FELL SIXTY-FIVE FEET Daquqae laborer Had \o Parachute bat Wai I nhurt. Special to The Journal. Rockwell, lowa, April 24. —Otto Brown, of Dubuque, one of the men employed on the, new convent building here, must cer tainly have a charmed life. While work-, ing on the cupola, sijUy-five feet from the ground, he lost his balance and fell, but to-day he is at work as though he had just been engaged in the pastime of turn ing a handspring. In his descent he struck the cornice of the building fifteen feet below his aerial starting point, and describing thence two somersaults, landed between two piles of brick on his feet in the soft earth. He was picked up uncon scious, but quickly recovered. HEALERS PLEAD GUILTY Officers of a Froitperon* Hagnrtic Institute in Missouri. Kansas City, April 24.—1n the federal court here. Stephen A. Weltmer and Jos eph H. Kelly, president and secretary of an institute of magnetic healing at Ne- I vada, Mo., pleaded guilty to using the j mails to defraud. Sentence was reserved. The institute advertised to heal "all dis ! eases known to man or woman." giving "absent treatment," and did such a tre mendous mail business that the Nevada | postoffice was raised from a fourth to a i lirst-class office.

PAID THEIR DEBTS Baseless Charge Against Soldiers of the Thirty-fourth. SHARPERS KEPT OUT OF CAMP Members of the Regiment Left Un paid Bill* of Not More Than $500. Special to The Journal. San Francisco, April 24. —Much surprise was expressed among friends of the Thirty-fourth United States volunteer in fantry over the report that the regiment had left the city heavily In debt to local merchants. At least one newspaper charged that "hundreds of retail mer chants," who had advanced money and given credit for clothing to members of the regiment, had been swindled out of thousands of dollars because collectors were not allowed on the camp grounds when the men were being mustered out and paid off. There exists about the gates of the Presidio reservation a gang of sharpers, who call themselves storekeepers. Other sharks send runners to the camps and sell clothing on credit, charging several times its value, and collect when the soldiers are paid. They became such a pest that many of the volunteer colonels com plained, and when the Thirty-fourth was paid off, the commanding officer of the regiment followed the example of many other volunteer colonels and kept the col lectors away from the tents. •■ A large number of Thirty-fourth men called at the stores where they had se cured credit and settled their bills in full. Some bills were questioned and payment was refused in some cases. Of the stores at the Presidio onJy three acknowledged not having been paid, $87.60 at one and $190 at another, and a little over $200 at a third. Down town at the principal clothing houses six places showed aggre gate claims against the Thirty-fourth of j something over $90. Of this amount one | bill for $34 has since been settled. It is | doubtful whether more than $500, all told, j was left unpaid in this city by the regi ment. FALCONIO IS SELECTED PAPAL DELEGATE AT WASHINGTON Mgr. Saleakl I» to Succeed Mgr.

Falconio. REED MAY PRACTICE NOW Former Speaker Im lin rodueed to the 1 nlted StateH Court. Xete York Sun Special Servlor New York, April 24.—A solidly built man, above the average height, with a smooth face and rather florid complexion, walked up to Commissioner -Shields' desic in the federal building this afternoon. "Is this the office of the clerk of the United States circuit court?" he inquired. t "Yes, sir." replied the commissioner, without looking up. "Is Commissioner Shields here?" "I am Commissioner Shields,' was-the reply, and the commissioner kept on writing. ■ "Ah," said the big man, and shifted from one to another position. "My name is Reed—and I'm a lawyer. I used to practice up in Maine, but-*—" . • Then the commissioner looked up and exclaimed: "Why, howdy do; glad to see you, Mr. Reed. What can I do for you?" "Well, you see," said Mr. Reed, "I want to be admitted to practice before the United States circuit court here, and I've never been introduced. Would you be willing to do that for me?" "Delighted," said the commissioner. They mounted ihe stairs to where Judge Wallace was sitting. There in a formal way the commissioner made a motion ad mitting Thomas B. Reed, lately of Maine, to practice in the United States court for this district, and it was granted. SHE KEEPS THE OFFICE Effort to Oust a Crippled Postmis tress Ends in Failure. If 10 York Sun Special Serrioe. Washington, April 24.—Mrs. M. E. Boyd is still postmistress at Centerville, Bour bon county, Ky., though that she is so is not the fault of J. C. Montgomery also of Centerville. Mrs. Boyd had been post mistress for eighteen years. One day a railroad train cut off her legs. When she was able to be about again she re sumed her position. But some people in Centerville did not fancy the idea of hav ing their mail handed them by a post mistress with no legs, and among them was Mr. Montgomery. He brought suffi cient influence to bear to secure the ap pointment. A storm of protest rose from the friends of the crippled postmistress, which reached the ear of Fourth Assistant Postmaster General Bristow, who held up Mr. Montgomery's commission. LIEN ON THE BOARD He May Xot Stay, However—A Meet- I ins at Redfield. Special to The Journal. Redfield, S. p., April 24.—The state board of charities and corrections met here last night and looked over the build ing and located the site of the new barns to be built. The members selected the site for the artesian well and considered plans for the sewer and other projects. There were four members present, George W. Kingsbury, J. I). Lavin, W. E. Tipton and C. H. Lien. There is some question as to the eligibility of Lien and he may not hold the place. The matter of the appointment of a su perintendent was put over to the nt^xt or some subsequent meeting when the full board ie present. The gentlemen went to Gary this morning to hold a meeting there. ROBBED AT A WEDDING Sioux City Man Loses 8500 Worth of j Jewelry in Jersey City. : New York Sun Special Strvlna f''(:.' ;■; New York.
