Munyon's
Honest Effort
To Prove the Value of
His Remedies Meets
With Unparallel
ed Success.
Hundreds Report Them
selves Cured by His
Free Samples.
23,496 Bottles Sold in 7
Days.
ffoow du you account for such enormous sales of
your medicines in so short a time? asked a re
porter of Munyon's rcpresestative last evening.
The reason is very simple, be replied. For years
the 'dAily papers have been filled with flaming ad
vertisements of different medical preparations
guaranteeing to cure all the ills flesh is heir to,
publihing testimonials from distant cities only,
and compelling the pbor anfferers to pay their hard
earnedl money for the remedy before using. The
publle were becoming disgusted. Professor Munyon
entered the deld with his new school of medicine.
and instead of abasing others te make capital for
himself. said to the sick and aflicted: "I have a
cure for such and such diseases. Tb prove this
fact I have placed 10,000 battles of the cure with
a reputable newspaper, where they can be obtained
abaolutely free by any one who wishes to try
them. All I ask in return is that yen report the
results. either good or bad, to the paper making
this distribution." in this manner Professor Mul.
yoa has given away 20,000 vials of his remedies in
Washington alone during the past year. At first
the people, wh, had been humbugged for years,
could hardly believe in the truth of this offer, but
"s the testimonials from well-known men and wo
men tall from this city and vicinity) began to be
published there was a rush for these cures, and at
the expiration of two weeks, when the papers an
nounaed that ninety-six out of every hundred per
puns using them had been cured or greatly bene
flted, the n.ost skeptical was convinced of the
virtue of these remedies. Thus, you see, Munyon,
with his honest work, obtained in a few weeks
what others had been striving after for years-the
confidence of the people-Professor Munyon trusting
in the virtue of his remedies, while others depend
on spreadeagle advertising. The former method
was bound to win, and today thousands of people
in Washington depend entirely on Muayon's Reme
ules to cure whatever ailments they may have. No
more doctor's bills for them. With Munyon's
Guide to Health and a case of his remedies in the
heuse, they feer insured against disease, and well
they may. for it is now an established fact that
these medicines have cured more disease during the
past year than the whole medical profession com
bined. With these facts before them, can any per
son hesitate one moment to try these cures, which
are sold by all druggists, mostly at 25 cents?

A Boom in Amnerican Idols.
From the Chicago Record-Herald..
The American hog, the American sewing
tnachine and the American locomotive have
thoroughly established their popularity in
foreign countries, and the Amnerican-made
idol is now about to take its place among
our chief articles of export. 1The cheap
idol with the "made-inGr y"~' tag is
about to be put away forever, and on its
pedestal the American Idol will be devoutly

MRSS RICHTER'S APPEAL

bian aYA,
Mrs. Ellen C. Richter of Syracuse, N. Y.,
the mother of Private Efward C. Richter,
who died in the Phippinee as a result. it
is alleged, of having the "water cure' ad
ministered to him by Lieut. William S. Sin
clair. who was .acquitted of the charge, Is
in Washington. and'has fsade an appeal to
Presidemt Roosevelt for relief. Mrg. Riebter
says in her appeal to the President she is
prepared to prove these facts:
"That my son Edward was a good, kind.
obedient boy to his mother, and josseibed
the confidence and esteem of the leading
citizens of Syracuse.
"That on the night of February 7, 1902,
at Dasmarinos, Philippine jslands, ideut.
William S. Sinclair ordered and directed
that my boy be removed from his quarters
and bound hand and foot to the ground.
"That while thus bound Lieut. Sinclair
ordered a gag placed in the helpless boy's
mouth.
"That this gag, consisting of a piece of
cloth, was held in Edward's mouth by
means of a club in the hands of Sergt. Mc
Dermott, who sat on his breait. .
"That as a further means of torture
Lieut. Sinclair compelled his men to pour
ice water on the helpless soldier's face.
"That this torture was continued for two
hours and twenty minutes, and that when
my poor, .misused. dying, helpless boy
pleaded for mercy, saying, 'Oh, don't, Mac,',
the torture was still continued.
"That many of the soldiers present could
not witness his awful suffering, and were
obliged to turn, horror-stricken, from the
scene."
Mrs. Richter says that when Judge Advo
cate General Davis was asked why Sinclair
was acquitted he went so far as to admit
that the court erred in its decision. The
mother asks that the President order her
boy's body be sent home, that she be fur
nished with a copy of the court-martial
which acquitted Sinclair and that the lat-.
ter be stripped of his uniform.
Adjt. Gen. Corbin said today that there
may have been some delay in removing the
remains of Richter on account of the strict
quarantine regulations in force in the Phil
ippines. but that his remains will be for
warded to the United States for Interment
as soon as possible, In accordance with the
general policy with regard to the remains
of all soldiers who die in tie insular posses
sions.
BADGES FOR DBIVEB&
"Coachies" for Foreign Represent
atives to Have Insignia.
Majbr Sylvester issued a circular to the
members of the police force today explain
ing the position of the local authorities
with regard to the drivers for foreign rep
resentativea The police are instructed to
govern themselves according to the infor
mation contained in the circular. The cir
cular reads:
"With reference to the circular note ad
dressed by the Secretary of State to the
several embassies and missione in the city
of Washington on January 19, 1900, Inclos
Ing for their use a coachmaas badge to
facilitate the access of their carriages on
occasions of public or private concourse, it
is deemed convenient to explain the condi
tions and manner of its employment in
order that no misunderstanding may exist
as to the privileges it confers.
"It is contemplated that the badge in
qPestion shall serve the same purpose as
the 'coupe file' commonly furnished to the
envoys of the United States at the principal
European capitals, which, while not en
titling the equipage to disregard the ordi
nary police rules of public circulation, are
intended to facilitate access and passage
on occasions of ceremony and unusual con
course where the presence of the police is
necessary to avoid confusion. In such in
stances upon exhibition of the badge to the
proper officer in charge of the line of car
riages, the police make way for the envoy's
equipage by halttng the line as soon as
possible, consistently with general order
and safety, and permitting it to pass, es
corted, if necessary, by a policeman. This
procedure, which is in common use abroad.
commends itself for adoption here, inas
much as it relieves the envoy's coachman
from the responsibility of judging how and
when to cut a line of waiting carriages
whose movements are ordered by the po
lice and, moreover, facilitates the perfor
mance by the police of their duty to pre
vent disorder and congestion of circulation.,
"It is expected that the drivers of the
embassies and missions will cordially co
operate with the police officers of the Dise
trict in carrying out this regulation in such
manner as to subserve the interest.ot the
public and diminish the: risks of collision
which necessarily attend the confusion and
congestion of a frequented public thor
oughfare, especially If it should he one

ful in the case of waiting unooc'upled car
riages -In order that the aecesar of occupied
vehicles may not be impeded and that the
thoroughfare shall not be obstructed.
"The Commissioners of the District of
ColumbIa have instructed the police within
their jurisdiction to follow this course."

REMOVING THE SNOW
rO ZR r OWm m n -
.L .sa - -razor.Ke
.Ieo Istretse to resm Warranb
- rThos Who rif to
Geamply.
In accordance with instructions Issued by
the District . and Major
Bich%rd sylvester, the lnjtsnde t of
police, omeers of the poace der .
have been busy since yesterday aotfyIng~
owners and agents of psoperty- to clear the
snow and ice from sidewalks. In cass
where a notification was not -effective and
a siffiejent time had been given for the de
sired removal, warrants are being applied
for. The weather conditions existir since.
the storm are such 'as to have prevented -
the thorough cleaning of the sidewalks by
property owners because the rain and hal
which preceded the snowstorm of Monday
night formed a basis of ice upon the pave
ment, which could net be cleaned away
owing to the zero wetaher which has since
prevailed.
At the office of the Commissioners it is
stated the District officials are considerably
hampered in their effort to clear the side
walks of snow and iee, not only by lack of
appropriation, but also by the failure- of
Congress to enact the necessary laws.' As
the matter stands at present the Commis
sioners are forbidden from doing any work
in the way of cleaning sidewalks, the Treas
ury Department having held that the ap
propriation for cleaning snow and ice from
the crosswalks or gutters does not apply to
sidewalks on private property, or even to
public streets.. The Commissioners did at
tempt to clear off the snow from in front
of vacant lots, or property held by non-res
idents, and charge the cost agaiqat the
property, but this was also declared by the
Court of Appeals to be illegal in the ab
sence of any law authorizing such action.
Snow and Ice Law.
In order to remedy this defect the Com
missioners framed a snow and ice law.
which the Senate has passed, but which is
held up in the House District committee,
although the Commissioners some weeks
ago addressed to that committee an ap
peal for the passage of the bill. This pro
posed legislation authorizes the Commis
sioners to clean the snow and ice froip
private sidewalks, upon the failure of the
owner or agent to perform the work, and
charge the same against- the property. In
the meantime, there is neither law nor ap
propriation whereby the Commissioners can
remove the snow and-ice now complained
of.
One Instance was recalled at the ofmee of
the Commissioners this morning where the
snow was not removed from the sidewalk
in front of the vacant house at the corner
of 15th and K streets northwest. The
owner is a non-resident, and the agent of
the property when approached by the police
with a warning that he must keep the side
walk cleared of snow and ica replied that
he had been unable tQ collect the money
previously expended in removing snow from
the sidewalk and did not feel justified in
advancing more money for that purpose.
Application was then made to the assist
ant corporation counsel, Mr. Pugh, at the
Police Court, for a warrant against the
agent, but the request was refused on the
ground that the agent was not the responsi
ble party.
Letter to Mr. Babcock.
The following is a copy of the letter writ
ten some days ago by the Commissioners
to the House committee on the District of
Columbia. The attention of Congress will
be again called to the matter. Addressing
Chairman Babcock, the Commissioners said:
"The Commissioners have the honor to
invite your attention to the fact that on
the 10th of March, 1902, the Senate passed
a bill entitled 'A bill to provide for the re
moval of snow and ice from the sidewalks
of the District of Columbia and for other
purpose.' This bill is now before the House
committee on the District of Columbia and
has apparently been overlooked in the con
sideration of other and more important
matters..
"The measure was designed to secure the
prompt removal of snow and ice from side
walks by providing the money and machin
ery whereby such removal could be accom
plished. Section 4 sets forth that in the
event of the failure of any owner or own
ers of any vacant or unimproved lot to
cause the removal of such snow or ice, or
to sprinkle the same with sand, sawdust or
other substance, it shall be the duty of the
Commissioners to cause the snow or ice in
front of such lot to be removed, or to cause
the same to be sprinkled. The section fur
ther. authorizes the Commissioners to as-e
sess against each lot the sum of $1 for the
work thus performed; and where any such
lot has a frontage in excess of twenty-five
feet, an additional sum of $1 for each ad
ditional frontage of twenty-five feet, o'
tractional part thereof, is to be assessed.
Aseassmen4s Authorised.
"There is at present a law which au
thorizes an assessment for this purpose, but
It does not provide an appropriation for the
work, and the Treasury Departinent offi
cials have decided that the regular appro
piatlon for cleaning snow and ice from the
streets cannot -be used for also removing
snow and ice from the sidewalks. The pro
posed -law carries with It-an appropriation
of $5,000, repeals the existing statute and
remedies other defects.
"The Commissioners have recently receiv
ed many cemplaints because snow and ice
have been allowed to: remain - upon pave
ments in front of vacant or unimproved
lots, thereby endangering life and limb. rt
is for this reason that they bring to your
attention the measure which passed the
Senate last March and which now awaits
the favorable action .of your committee."

The current number of Nature contains
an account of Dr. Lyster Jameston's re
searches Into the origin of the pearl. Beau
tifual object as It Is, the animal that pro
duces it probably regards it as an unmitt
gated nuisance. It is composed of a homely
material-the same that forms the inner
part of the nacreous layer of such a shell
as the common oyster, but gathered into a
ball, instead of spread out nearly smooth.
Thus, mother-of-pearl and the pearl itself
are of the same substance, -and their Iri
descence Is due .to the waves -of ordinary
fight breaking, as it were, into sprays when
they strike the outcropping edges formed
by these layers. The pearl itself is secreted
by a part of the animal called the mantle,
but may be produced by other mollusks
than the pearl o -ster. which, gtrictly speak'
Ing. is not an oyster at all. British pearls,
for instance, which were noted even before
the days of Pliny and Tacitus, with river
pearls generally, come from a kind of fresh
Water snussel. The pearl really is a pro-~
vision for self-defense. When something
obsoxioua comes between the inside of..the
shell and tihe mantle, the mollusk treats .it
uliuch $s a. wis person does the proverbial
skeletch in the cupboard, when he: 10.cks
the door and loses the key; it proceeds.to
bury the obnoxious inmate beneath layers
of nacre. - .
The Chinese avail themselves of .this
habit by deftly Inserting little flat images of
Buddha, which, when thug incased, find a
profitable market, and some tiny irritant
causes the pimple,like pearls often seen on
the insble of a phel. *1ke true pearl, how
ever, has not quite the same history; it .is
formed 1tside the mantle, and only becomes
attached - to the shell by- it exceptplonal
growth, for there is a worm in the pearl as
well as .in the bud. The creature whose
presence has, in moat cases stimulated the
mollusk to make a pearl belongs to a very
objectionable clas of worms, known to
science as .the tremtodes, and in certain
instances execrated by farmers under the
namen of flin1s. The higher gades in the
aganma1 kingdom "hurry up" In passing
through the lower stages-of their existence,
but where the dignity of a backbone I.siltl
In the far future such a creature as one of
these trematodes spends more time ever
each transformation-perhaps because, like
some people having little to do, it does It in
a leisurely way. And even thea it must be
helped. The trematode, which 1w, so to say,
at the bottom of the pearl, must- have a
"host"-. sort of foster mother-at? each
of its three stages of existence, and-for one
of these will be content with nothing less
than a vertebrate.

Freezing the earth by artificial process in
order to cuit tunnels through it is a devel
'opment of modern' engipeering that should.
excite popular .interest to an unusual de
gree. This is . a .feaft,re of the plan pro
posed by an eminent American engineer for
digging the Pennsylvania railway tunnels
under the -North and East rivers and uinder
Manhattan Island Into-New York city. One
does not need to be an engineer to perceive
the diffBculties In the way of locating a tun
nel in. the treacherous -aft or sediment of
the Hudson river bottom. By a process of
chemical refrigeration-the same as Is em
ployed In the manufacture of "artIdcial"
ice-It ia proposqd .to solidify this silt and
sand so that cutting through it may be
made safe and easy.
It is claimed that whille this freezing pro
cess has been employed in numerous difBi
cult excavations in Europe, the only note
worthy instance of its. application in this
country was in' slnking a shaft at the
Chapint Iroir mine at'Iron mountaln. Michi
gan, where -a cylinder of waterbeaig
strata- fifty-four floet de diameter and ex
tending 100 feet belotr water level was first
frozedi and the perpendicular tunnel then
excavated :through it. .The freezing was
aceomplished by mamkint vertical pipes - ar

shaft. Through a smar pipe in each of
