The Sunshine of True
Health and Life After Years of Agony. Paine's Cellery Compound Rescues a Sufferer Who Had Given up All Hope. The liver. the largest and one of the most impor tant organs of the body. is, to thousands of young and old, a source of suffpring. It has been truly said that a diseased liver means physical and men tal tortures and dangers. The common symptoms of liver complaint are les of appetite aausea, vomiting. furred tonguC, constipotion, impure blood, headache, depression of spirits and a bost of other evils. Are you a victim of liver complaint? Do you experience any of the symptoms noted above? It so, do not fail to make immediate use of Paine's Celery Compound, the only medicine that directly strikes the root of the trouble, and that infuses new life Into every inactive organ. Mr.' C. U. Beaumont, Memphis, Tenn., give. the following testimony: "For many years I was a sufferer from liver trouble, and at time, endured terrible agonies. My blood was in bad condition. and headache and con stipation added to my miseries. The doctors were unable to cure me, and I lost all hope, and at times wished for death. Upon the advice of a friend I commenced to use your wonderful Paine's Celery Compound. After taking the medicine for two weeks I felt very much improved. I have taken in all seven bottles, and, thank God. I am today healthy and strong. Paine's Celery Com pound truly saved me from the grave. I shall al ways recommend it." DO YOUR OWN DYEING AT HOME.

DIAMOND DYES, Burlington, Vermont. ABUSING THE T1EES. New York the Greatest Offender in the Country, Says Mrs. Britton. Prom the New York Tribune. "In proportion to her population, New York has fewer trees than any c'ty in the world, and those few they abuse worse than any city in the world," said Mrs. Elizabeth Britton of the botanical gardens, while speaking at the Normal Collcge. One of the most important abuses which she named was that of placing guy ropes, with scarcely any protection, about the trunks of shade trees. This offense is of frequent occurrence where large buildings and the subway are being. constructed. "The living portion of a tree is on the outside, Just between the bark and the wood." said Mrs. Britton, "and so, if guy ropes must be attached to trees, or stones piled against them, nothing short of thick boards or semi-cylinders of iron should protect them, and take all the strain off this living part of the tree. "Another common abuse of trees in all cities is cutting off the tops, while in the city parks the trees are abused in so many ways that one would think they had been placed there for purposes of depredation. Children especially are offensive in this way, and work much damage by pulling at the lower limbs to make a swing." - It was largely to teach children to rev erence and love the trees that this talk was given, and, speaking as Mrs. Britton did to teachers representative of various public schools in the city, her audience was the one to undertake this missionary work. "Even if your pupils are from the crowd ed parts of the East Side, where there are children who have never seen a tree," said she, "still you may teach of trees. Read to them; there are poems about trees; show them pictures of trees, and have some twigs which may come to bud in the school room. Remember that though you are handling children in Rivington street, yet you are training American citizens who may be come property owners. "Dr. Andrew W. Edson of the course of study committee of the board of superin tendents, said the other day that he was anxi8us to have emphasis laid on trees and the care of trees '_y teachers in the public schools. "The aquarium and botanical garden by right belong to the teachers, but the board of education has never put them to use. The teachers will in time be called upon to do better work In science, and when the de mand comes there is no doubt they will meet it as they ".et the demand for manual training." LAI GB C$ECXg Ownership of Millims Tranasferred by a Narrow Slip of P:;er. Phom the New York Esening Poet. Wall Street banking these days Involves the use of some very large checks. Single Items for $5,00,000 or $10,000,000 are fre Quently seen, and much greater amounts are sometimes transferred through the in terchange of a narrow slip of paper. Most of these items are collected through the elearing house, except in cases where they are deposited in the bank on which they are drawn. At the time that the Third Avenue rail road property changed hands two checks, aggregatng $84,500,000, were given out. One of the checks, for $17,00JO0,000, passed through the clearing house May 28, 1900. It was drwn by Kuhn, Loeb & Co. on the National City Bank, and was collected by the Bank of Commerce for the Morton Trust Company. Another check, drawn by the same firm for $17,500,000 on the Bank of Commerce, did not pass through the clear ing house, it being collected by the Morton Trust Company from the bank direct. Pro ylous to that, on February 1, 1901, a check for $23,12',000 was drawn by J. P. Morgan & Co. on the First National Bank, That was also collected direct, without passing through the clearing house. In connection 'rith the purchase of Southern Pacific Stock by the Union Pacific company a check for 14.890,0 was drawn on the Mercantile TruSt Company March 5, 1901. The check given a fortnight ago In payment of Lake Shore's holdings of Reading Stock was for S21,500.000, and ranks, so far as known, as the second largest check ever used in local banking.

Meeting of Executive Committee Remodeled Fire Engine Beoeived General and Personal. Evening Star Bureau. 7d King St. Bell Telephone, 104. ALEXANDRIA, Va., February 19, 19M._ The press committee in connection with the Washington birthday anniversary cele bration here next Monday will send out In vitati3ns this evening to the various news paper, men in Washington, Virginia and Maryland to attend the celebration. The committee -has leased the Exchange Hotel building, on Royal street between King alid Cameron streets, wnich wAll be used as headquarters during the day. The rooms will be appropriately furnished with many conveniences for the visitors. Luncheon and other refreshments will be served. The members of the committee have ex pressed satisfaction at being able to secure the hotel, as the balcony will afford a most excellent view of the passing pageant. At a meeting of the executive committee held last evening at the headquarters, cor ner of King and Washington streets, it was decided to charter two excursion steamers to bring down the various Washington or ganizations that will participate in the parade. Mr. John B. Padgett, the manager of the ferry line, had offered to put 'the ferry boats at the disposal of the visiting organizations, but It was thought that some additional means would be necessary in order to effect the safe and comfortable transit of the passengers. Railway Traffic Delayed. TZffic over the Washington, Alexandria and Mount Vernon railroad between Alex andria and Washington was suspended for several hours this morning, owing par tially, it Is stateu, to the fire at .the furni ture house of Moses & Son on 14th street. Aiter the 8:30 train for Washington left Alexandria no other went north until about 11 o'clock. In the meantime crowds of passengers gathered In the waiting -rooms on IKng street and importuned the agents for information concerning the resumption of traffic. All the agents knew, of the trouble was that it was caused by the 14th street fire, where the passage was blocked by the engines and hose. Many of those who had urgent business in Washington succeeded in getting off over the Southern road or by the ferry line. At 10:3) an electric train came Into Alexandria followed a few minutes later by another, and it was believed that the trouble was at an end. But when the first train, which left for Washington reached Arlington Junction a delay of near ly an hour occurred owing to- the blocking of steam trains at the Long bridge. It was finally decided to load the pas sengers on a small single car bound for Rosslyn on the Arlington line. This was done, and the trip was com pleted by way of the Aqueduct bridge. No arrangement was made for transporting the passengers across this bridge, tile conse quence being that the many ladie(L in the party, who had to walk in the. face of the terrific gale of wind from the north, suf fered severely. The congestion of traffic at the Long bridge lasted several hours. Delayed Engine Arrived. The reserve fire engine of the city fire de partment, which has been up for remodeling at Seneca Falls, N. Y., arrived here this morning. It was hailed with much pleasure by the firemen, who feared that it would not get here In time to be in the parade next Monday. The unusually long time in which the engine was in transit and the failure to obtain information as to its whereabouts had caused considerable apprehension. It was conveyed this morning to the Hydraul ion engine house, where It will be decorated for the parade. Since the remodeling the apparatus is almost as good as new. It will be expected to supplement the work of the two regular engines, the Hydraulion and Columbia. Brief Mention. The action of the Washington branch of the University of Virginia Alumni Associa tion In protesting against the bill introduced in the Virginia general assembly for the incorpordtion of the general Alumni Asso ciation of the University of Virginia, has been indorsed by the Alexandria alumni. At the same time the local association adopted a resolution requesting Gov. Mon tague not to sign the bill in question. A colored man named Robert Dewey, who has been carefully sought by the police of this city for several days on the charge of stealing chickens, was arrested this morn ing by Officers Bettis and Beach. The pris oner was turned over to the Alexandria county authorities, where most of the mid night depredations are alleged to have oc curred. It is charged that Dewey has de pleted a large number I of hen houses on farms just to the north of the city. Miss Eleanor French of this city was one of the bridesmaids at the marriage at Chatham, Va., yesterday evening of Mtis Louise Shacacelford Dabney, . daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Chiswell Dabney of Chatham, and Mr. Edward Ernest Heald of Lynch burg. The ceremony took place in the Episcopal Church, and was performed by the rector, Rev. C. 0. Pruden. Mrs. Robert Cline has returned to her home in this city after having undergone two critical operations at Providence Hos pital, Washington. Her condition is re ported to be encouraging. ATTEEPTE!D SUICIDE. William Newman Tried Twice to 'E!nd mas i&fe. Despondent because of financial troubles resulting from lack of employment, William Newman of 345 K street southwest made two attempts yesterday to end -his life. The attempts were made by inhaling illuminat ing gas, and the second one came near proving fatal. About a year ago he made an attempt to take his life with "Rough on Rats." Yesterday afternoon his wife found him In the bath room with the gas turned on, but he was not unconscious. The wife turned off the gas and escorted her husband from the room. Last night she was afraid to remain in the house, and about 9:31) o'clock neighbors complained to the police that the man's peculiar conduct had at tracted their attention. Sergeant Jack went to the house and found the man in an un conscious condition in one of' the sleeping rooms. The gas was turned on. Medical assistance was summoned and the ill man was restored to consciousness. Newman was then taken to the fourth precinct police station and held on suspicion of being In sane. Dr. Marburg examined the prisoner this morning andbdeciared thim Insane. He will probably be sent to the asyltim this afternoon. Newman is twenty-sin years old and formerly lived in Anne Arundel county, lid. For Relief of Needy.

Portrait of John Randolph of Eoanoke at Age of Eighteen. "When I was in Richmond a few days since," said Mr. Ridgely Howard of Balti more to a representative of The Star at the New Willard, I made one of those bad breaks which prove so embarjgassing. I was a guest of a member of the crack Westmoreland Club, and after a slight- re past I was escorted through the building for the purpose of viewing the pictures, relics of the civil war, etc. During the tour mentioned my attention was particularly attracted to the portrait of what I took to be a very handsome brunette. I incidentally remarked to my host that the young lady was quite pretty, when, with a low chuckle, he replied. 'Yes, quite pretty, but as a mat ter of fact the picture represents John Ran dolph of Roanoke -at eighteen.' You also smile, but let me explajn how I was caught. The hair was parted in the middle and neatly combed hack of the ears; the fea tures were of a purely feminine mold, and the expression of the eyes and face was so shy and bashful that you will readily un derstand how ,I was deceived. One can hardly conceive, looking at the portrait of Rand'olph at the age represented, that he could ever grow into the cynical and disa greeable creature he is reported to have been in his later years. If he ever had love affairs which went wrong I have never heard of them. As near as.I can learn he never had any real ardent affection for any woman except his mother, who, it is said, was beautiful .and whom it is also said he closely resembled ad a chil'd. "Later in the day I paid a visit to Holly wood cemetery, a beautiful spot, and sought the grave of Randolph. I 'found It on a gentle slope overlooking the James. It ap pears that some twenty years ago, or more, the remains of Randolph were moved from the lonely spot in the forest at Roanoke to their present resting place by the state au thorities. A -marble slab now covers his last resting place on which is the following inscription: 'Here lies John Randolph of Roanoke.' The only other words on the sla-b are those giving the date of birth and death." . Pretty Girl Census Taker.. From the Cineinnati- Times-Star.

In the eastern district the four Catholic churches will as sist the Rev. Frank English. who has charge of the work there. The downtown district is well organized. Among the young women who will assist in the work are those who are studying for the mips. try at the School of Pastoral Helpers.

The pleasures of shopping are as rigorous ly denied to "mere man" as are the ad vantages of whistling to fair woman, The decree, being nature's own, is universal, and the attempts made to contravene it are few and unsuccessfuL. An exception, more apparent than real, was made a few days ago by an uxorious Berlin husband intent on presenting his better half with a new blouse. He hurriedly entered one of the first shops in the capital and conaided his intention to the graceful young lady as sistant. "I want a blouse good one. You understand. It must be silk-the best silk." "May I ask what color you prefer?" In Quired the superior young saleswoman, with a emile. "Oh, I'm not particular about the color, but I may say that it may cost from 3 Oto 40 marks," "And the cut?" "The cut? Well, I really don't much care; after all it comes to thie same thing." "May I ask sbout the lady for whom It is destined?" "Why, she is my wife, of course! Whorp else did you--?' "I beg your pardon. What I meant was, 'What is her size, at least ap proxine.tely?" "It doesn't matter In the least. Please show me some blouses, one blouse, any blouse, and let me go, for I am in' a -hurry to 'catch a train." With pleas ure, air; but If you can't give me an Idea of the color, cut or size, nor anything else to guide me, how can I hope to suit you?" "Give sme any blouse you like so long as the price is between 30 and 40 marks. It doesn't matter a straw what cut or color or size I choose, for in any case it's certain to be changed. I told you It is for a lady." One Evil of Centrulization. Fmom the Blrooklyn Eagle. The modern tendency to centralization is not confined to the industry of organizing trusts.
