WASHINGTON A ALEXANDER. April 3 1 s<w Rheumatism Is a blood disease aud only a blood reme dy can cure it. So many people make the mistake of taking remedies which at beA are only tonics and cannot possi bly reach their trouble. Mr. Asa Smith, Greeucastle, Indiana, says: “For years I have suffered with Sciatic Rheuma tism, which thebest physicians were un able to relieve. I took many patent medicines but they did not seem to reach my trouble. I gradually grew worse until I was un able to take my food or handle myself in any way; I was abso lutely helpless. Three bottles of S.S.S. re lieved me so that I ^was soon able to move my right arm; before long I could walk v across the room, aud when I had finished one dozen bottles was cured completely aud am as well as ever.

Sheppard, the colored mission ary to Africa of the Southern Presbyterian Church, who was educated by Staunton friends and is now located in West Central Africa with his Bible and bicycle, 1,000 miles from the coast. He is the only mis sionary who lias been permitted to enter the savage Lukengo’s dominions, and then only because the king, despite the missionary’s protests, received him as the reincarnation of a dead sou He is a most intelligent, but modest colored man, and with his wife, also educated for missionary work, is doing effective wo*-k among the natives. During his last visit to America, three years ago, Mr. Sheppard told the stfTry of his work to ' large audiences in many of the most prom inent white churches throughout the South. He is very grateful for tin* assistance given him in gelling an education by some of his white friends in Staunton, and keeps them in memory by naming new discoveries in Africa after them. He tells in one of his [ letters a graphic story of how, after waiting many weary mouths for his mail from America, that had come thousands ot miles by land and -ea, just before his carriers reached him they were set upon by ele phants and chased up a tree and his entire mail—letters and newspapers, secular and religious—eaten up literatmn et verbatim by the elephants — Baltimore Sun ditpatcb.

S 1 BOLD BY ALL DRUGGISTS. S Knights of old—crusaders who went to conquer the world, could not hope to succeed unless they were in virile, hearty health. A man cannot face difficulties if his stomach isn’t in good order. Dis ordered digestion will make a sluggish coward out of any m..n. It makes his mind stagnant, a'ud he cannot think quickly enough to accomplish anything. It makes his movements slow, and takes all of the snap out of him. Every man in business in America has a fight on his hands just as much as ever had belted knight. It is a matter of life and death, just the same with him as it was with the crusader. Indigestion and all the ills that go with it. most frequently start in constipation. That keeps all sorts of itn puratios in the body, forces them into the blood, and so deranges the whole system. Constipation is one of the commonest ills, and to it are traceable most of the disorders that make people sick. Once it gets a firm hold on a man, it is most difficult to overcome it. Temporary re lief can be obtained in a thousand ways. There arc medicines on the market that will help as long as you take them. There is only one remedy that is a real remedy—that vou don't have to keep on takin» forever. That is Dr. Pierce's Pleasant relicts. The “Pellets” are tiny, sugar-coated granules, mild and efficient in their action. They effect a permanent cure. You don't become a slave to their use, as with other pills.

From u letter to the Hon George A Cur den, of Dallas: In June, 1893, I was din cussing the silver question at Jackson, Miss . when a gentleman in the audience u-ked me if I would support a gold standard can didate on a gold standard platform if the Democratic Convention should nominal* sucb it candidate. I answered that while I did not believe the Democratic party would take such action, I would refuse to support the nominee in the event that it did selec' a gold-standard candidate on a gold-stand ard platform. It was this statement t" which Mr. Carlisle referred when be, a few days later, called me a Populist and refu-e<l ti debate the silver question with me at Lexington, Kv. I never retracted what I said at Jackson, Anil I do not intend to. I am now a private citizen, and my vote is my own. Directed by my conscience anti by my best judgment I shill use that vote to defend my rights, protect my family and advance the welfare of society. No convention can rob me oi convictions, nor can any party organization drive tne to conspire against the prosperity and liberty of my country. I expect to be a delegate to the next Dem ocratic National Convention, and I shall d<> all in my power to save the Democratic party from the grasp of plutocracy. I deny the right of a convention to depart from the principles as taught by the party in the past, and then attempt to bind those who shall participate in the hope of holding the party to its ancient position. In other words, if a Democrat attends a c< ivention for the purpose of obtaining a reaLirraation of Dem ocratic faith and finds that liie convention repudiates the conditions of the party and announces an entirely new policy, lie is not. in my judgment, bound to support such new policy. If tariff reformers, for instance, attend the convention expecting an indorse merit of tariff reform, they will not be bound to suppoit a candidate who believes in a McKinley tariff, even if be should be nom inated by a Democratic convention upon a platform declaring that the McKinley bill represents the Democratic idea upon the tariff question. The money question is far more important to our people than tlie tariff question, and biinetalii»ts who go to the na tional convention will not, in my judgment, be bound to support the nominee it the con vention indorses the policy of John Sher man and gives the lie to all the efforts ol j the Democratic parly for the last 20 years i to undo what Sherman did. Men who agree upon a principle can sub mit their personal preferences to the arbi trament of a convention, but m<‘n who bon estly differ upon the paramount public ques tions cannot afford to be harmonized by a national convention. Mr Cleveland Would not support a free silver candidate for the Presidency, and he should not do so if lie . really believes that free coinage would ruin the.country, because a man’s duty to his country is higher than his duty to liis party. Whenever we speak of nominating a silver man we are told tiiat we would lose tue vote of the eastern Democrats. Why are the Demo orats of the west and south bound to support a goldbug, when eastern Democrats to not feel them-elve< bound to support a bimetallist? The President has set up a golden image and has commanded that we fall down and worship ii 1 for one shall not do it. I shall relu-e, not because I have cea-ed to be a Democrat, but because the Democracy of Jefferson and Jackson are dearer to me than the plutocracy preached by Cleveland in the interest of Wall street I write you thus at length because I feel that the matter is of great iinportauce and because I have uo purposes which I care to conceal.

When McKinley iras a Cook. Chicago Record : “Speaking of McKin ley,” remarked a voyager from Kansas, “did any of you fellows ever hear that he used to be a cook ?” “No,” responded the chorus. “Well, he was,” retorted Ksn-as. “That’s straight. He was once a cook, and he got $13 a month wages.” “What are you giving us?” asked a quiet Voung student from Columbia College, who lad been out in the copper mines at Butte. Whereupon there was a hearty laugh and s -veral irrelevant suggestions were offered, when the Kansan resumed : “There’s a fellow by the name of Wagner •ut in our town who claims that William McKinley, who is now a candidate for the Presidency, used to cook for him, and that he was the worst cook he ever ate after.— His biscuits were as heavy as lead, and his coffee was like the water of the Missouri riv er—all color and no taste. He could fry bacon pretty well, Wagner says, but any body can fry bacon. All you've got to do is to put it in the skillet and turn it • vn low and then.” “Where was this conking?” asked the Pawtucket man. “They were camping out, weren't they ?” "Yes; down in Went Virginia during the war. Wagner was a member of the Twen ty-Third Ohio Infantry, which was McKin* ey’s regiment, and belonged to Company K. McKinley was detailed as company cook, and the men kicked so hard that they got him promoted to commissary sergeant, so that he had to liu-tlo for the grub, while someone else cooked it.” The efforts pi Rnurka Cockran to array ail other laboring clus'es* against the farmers of our country will meet a jtl<t reboke at the polls in November.—Charleston (iuyfi . It was “professional” farmers to whom lie referred—“the farmeio who cultivate the (|Uitrrt*iB in iiitir iKai^iiu<»rny uumnn wuu hi* bor with their jaws, farmers who want to pay low wages, ‘professional’ famers,—men who are unwilling to share with, the labor er.” There are other than profession;*! farmers for whom he had a good word, as follows: “The farmer who when this country was in (anger shouldered his musket, to s* t it aside when the last shot had been fired on the Southern battle field, whose moderation pre vented the political warriors at Washington from pursuing a policy of discrimination md punishment iu the Southern States— that farmer who made tho policy of th* North a policy of conciliation, of forgive ness, of reunion—that farmer to-day is the mainstay of order and of property as he was the mainstay of the Union.” There were yet other farmers to whom he alluded as follows: “The men who, from a mistaken sense of loyalty, followed their States cut of the Union, whose gallantry in war, whom fortitude iu defeat, won the admiration of the civilized world, the men whose virtues commanded the support of Northern public opinion in the attempt to overturn carpet bag governments in the Southern States, tlie men who led their people through all the troubled period of reconstruction hack into full union with the sister States—those men, like Hamptou in South Carolina ami Caffrey in Louisiana have been swept from power. in it# a ml Spt u#trr«. It was a foolish sermon abnut“0’d Maids” that was recently preached by the R v. Sam mis iu the Baptist Church at South River, N. J and about which, as he says, a great fu-s has been made. Oh! yes, Miriam may have been an old maid, but the mother •>> the Gracchi wasn’t and we would probably never have had Shakespeare if his mothtr has been one. As to the “ridiculed and des pised spinster,” who Mr. Sammis exalted, -ters are not ridiculed i>r di«pi«ed, excepting by fooN or blackguard*. It is not true that “spinster* are the superiors of the great min ority of their married sisters.” Wives and spinster* are very much alike in their wom anhood. There was a lot of gammon about wives as well as spinsters in the Uev. .Mr. £am mis’* sermon. Here is a scrap of it: Give a woman too much power ami you will repent it. If the lady ol the liou-e gets full control of domestic affairs, you will soon see her coming it over her husband in an a hunting manner. Just limit her power a little and all will go pleasantly : bu> give her complete control and that settles it.” This South Kivtr preacher ought to get out of his pulpit. He is a stupid old bach elor, and knows nothing about either wives or spins ers.—Aar York tun. CASTOHIA. Ij 73 •my Tjipja.

Bryan was the salaried em ploye of the Silver L-ague—making speech es ft»r free coinage of *ilver at a compensa tion $6,000 per year,—and the attention of Mr. Bryan having been called to it, he flstlj denied the truth of the allegation.

Clever Feats of a Chimpanzee. Professor Garner says that one of the most intelligent and quite the best educated chimpanzee that he ever saw is Consul II. The many feats done by this ape would fill a small volume; he has not been trained to perform them as tricks, simply to amuse or eiftertain visitors, but many sf them he has ukeu up of his own accord, having seen others do so- The feat impressed me most was his skill in riding a tricycle, and hia taste for that sport. He often takes his ma chine without being told, and rides all about the plate, if he finds it lying on ita side, he sets it upright, adjusts the handle* 1 bar, mounts it and takes a ride. He pro* pels it with ease and guides it with dexter ity. No boy of bis own age can handle it with more skill. He rides all about the place, around the walks and drives, all over several acres of ground, he steers it around the posts and corners, around the curves of the paths, makes his way through crowds | of p. ople without colliding with them. He imusps himself by the hour at this pastime. When ht> tires of it he sometimes shoves the vehicle up in some corner and leaves it. C*n«ul also smokes a cigar, cigarette, or pipe. He often tines a cigar stub about the place, picks it up, puts it in his mouth, and goes to his keeper for a light. One amus ing habit he has is that of spitting, he is not very skilllul in this but is persistent. However, lie has the politeness not to spit on the ll'M>r, bo spreads a piece of paper on the lloor, and uses it as .1 cuspidor.—Harp* ert Round Table. From nf Sfritl-tut Prof. \7. n.
