Former President Entertained a
Negro Office Holder at White
Washington, March 1.During con
sideration of the District of Colum
bia appropriation bill in the hou se Mr.
Scott of Kansas made the declaration
that a negro had dined at the White
House with President Cleveland dur
ing the latter's first administration.
The statement was prompted by a
reference by Mr. Gilbert of Kentucky
to the dining of Booker Washington at
the White House. When the name
was demanded Mr. Scott said it was
C. J. Taylor, who was appointed by
President Cleveland as
deeds for the District of Columbia.
Mr. Gilbert observed th at he and
others never had heard of the incident,
but the democrats were "not particu
larly claiming" Mr. Cleveland, and Mr.
Cochr an of Missouri said that it was
ut cumulative evidence th at "there
is no better republican in the country
than Grover Cleveland."
Mr. Scott, in contrasting Booker
Washington with Taylor, said that the
former was a man of recognized abil
ity, while, he declared, there was
nothing to commend the later.

FifthTo authorize the issue of

ing of apprehension or anxiety as of im
pending danger, drowsiness daytimes,
sleeplessness at night.
A little over-exertion, excitement or*
emotion may bring on the attacks at any
time. Sudden rising from a stooping or
reclining position will cause dizziness, and
rapidly climbing stairs will make the heart
palpitate, produce weariness and shortness
of breath. In some cases there are paini
in the region of the heart, but in most
cases there is no pain whatever.
Neglect of these symptoms will result in
heart failure, spasms or neuralgia of the
heart, or death.
Hon. S. J. Dana, Fayston, Vt, says:
"It has been my misfortune to suffer for
a long time with a very severe pain in my
stomach and lack of sleep, and what little
sleep I did get was almost worthless. I
was also troubled with heart trouble. This
had become worse than usual before I used
Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve:
remedy, but since then I have been greatly'
helped. My sleep has been improved, so
that I feel refreshed, and in that respect
feel like a boy. The pain in my stomach,
which I called indigestion, has left me. I
feel as though the wheels of time had been
turned back a few turns, and I attribute it
all to Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and
nerve remedy. I have no hesitation in say
ing, before all the world, that Dr. Greene's.
Nervura leads all the medicines that"have,
