I was a sufferer for a long
time with my stomach and all
the doctoring I had was a great
expense and I still suffered. One
doctor told me I had cancer of
the stomach. One day I had a
very severe attack and as I had
heard Ripans Tabules com
mended many times, I con
cluded to try them, when to my
surprise and delight their ef
fect was wonderful.

SALE OF LIQUORS.
Excise Board Makes Report on a Pend
The excise board has made a report to
the District Comnlissioners on Senate bill
4202, to regulate the sale of intoxicating
liquors in the District of Columbia, which
was referred by the Senate District com
mittee to the local- authorities with a re
quest for information as to the necessity
of the proposed legislation. It will be re
membered the Commissioners recently
granted a hearing to the Anti-Saloon League
irnd other temperance societies of the Dis
trlct who favored the proposed bill, whlctt
is similar to bills introduced at the two last
sessions of Congreas. The report of tha
excise board la made by Mr. 8. T. ?. Mor
sell, the chairman, and Is as follows:
"The board has carefully considered the
Inclosed bill. Senate A'Mi, to regulate th?
sale of intoxicating liquors in the Distriot
of Columbia, and Is of the opinion that lta
enactment into law would cure deflects in
the present excise law and Introduce new
features which would in a great measure
tend to perfect a good law.
"The board would respectfully suggest
that section 6 of the bill be amended by
adding after the word 'sold' In line Id the
following words, 'to be drunk on tho prem
ises.' Under a strict construction of this
section, if the bill became a law. a grocer
holding a wholesale liquor license would bo
amenable to punishment if he permitted a
minor to enter the premises for the purpose
of purchasing groceries."
The amendment is intended to make It
plain that minors shall not be allowed In
places where liquor is sold "to be drunk on
tne premises." The present law does not

but makes it unlawful for any one to seil
CHICAGO FACTORY BURNS.
Brunswick-Balke-Collender Company a
CHICAGO. March 11.?The five-story
brick warehouse of the Krtinswlck-llalke
Collcnder Company, located at Wells and
Superior streets, was practically destroyed
by fire tonight. The flames spread so rap
idly that for a time the company's factory,
which adjoins the warehouse, was threat
ened. A large quantity of ammonia and in
flammable material slored In the building
handicapped the flremen, as an explosion
was expected at any moment. Several spe
cial calls for extra engines were sent in,
and after a stubborn light the flames were
subdued, with a loss of $175,(100.
The principal item of loss was a great
quantity of glass recently imported, and
which would have been used for making
mirrors. The value of this glass, which
was destroyed, was 1100,000. All losses aro
covered by insurance.
The Mormon missionaries propaganda hag
become very active in Denmark.

And 1 shall understand.
