riNUHBAR ending of the strike.
Saturday morning found a mimher of tho
nrliniig Hulun ship-carpenters at 'lho head
duaricrsnf tho Chicago Dry-Dock Company.
nnJy ("go in work. In response to questions
out to them, thoy slated that nt tho meeting of
,ho I'nloti. he'd tho previous evening, It was do
,MoJ by resolution (hat Inasmuch os tho move
'ni*,o secure uu advance of wages to $U per
l*m had lulled, therefore all Union men should
return to work at tho old rato, 92.30 pur diem,
•rneiitraef compromising on 92.73 per day, ns
bu.l been done by Miller Brothers employes, was
icontcd. As many of tho strikers as could be
_o|kcd conveniently were sunt Into tho hold of
iho schooner 1.. M. Mason to make re-
Mlrs: the rest returned homo, because tho
nmnilllug storm rendered mit-door operations
nimost impossible. During tho forenoon sev-
SSi of ibo strikers called at tho Company's
hmakainricrs and expressed a willingness to go
tn work at jiVi per day, lint tho management
informed them that they Intended to follow tho
udinlstuof tho Union and pay only 92.50 to
members of the organization. Tho Company
Stoect to haven full force at work tills morii
,'T in conversation with tho reporter of Tim
'nunuNE. Saturday forenoon, u loading member
*1 ,h 0 Union staled that overtures for tho strike
wcrctlrsi made by men employed In Miller
mothers'shipyard, who promised to Join tho
ruinate the number of seventy-live. Ttio strike
was ordered, and I hose men wore tho Unit to re
turn to work. Tho resolution adopted iTlday
niffhl intends that members shall engage upon
«id work for £-.75 per duun, and upon now work
at*such reduced wages ns may bo agreed
uuoti with the employers. “There will not
be another strike of Union men for a year, you
can depend upon It,” said Iho speaker. “ and
even at the end of that time nut mum new
work. Wo court all tho now work Chicago can
itcarc, and do not propose to place ourselves iu
~, a ttitudo calculated to drive ttnwav.”
If mo action of tho Union was intended to
cduio further trouble nl Miller Brothers' ship
van! It will fail of Its mark, as the Messrs.,Mil
ler propose to keep faith employes
and pay them tho $2.73 per diem agreed upon,
Tho chances are very decidedly that tho resolu
tion will provo a boomerang, and Inlliet greater
Injury anon tho Union organization than upon
the enemy at whom it has been burled. A tiny
or two will servo to disclose tho olTcot of tho
,lobular action.
SAULT STE. MARIE IMPROVE-
M ENTS.
The Cleveland papers of Saturday print an In
terfiling correspondence between George 11.
Ely, tho State Department, British Minister
Thornton, and Gen. Weltzol, upon tho subject
of tbo Improvement of tho EastNcoblsh Rapids,
HaultSte. Marie Itlvor. In bis letter to tbo State
Department, Mr. Ely presented tho following
facts:
•‘The'new lock and canal nt tboSnnUSlo.
Mario will bo ready for use about July 1. IBHI,
with a depth of water at tbo present stage of
sixteen feet. Tho river bits been drudged to six
teen feet of water, also, for forty miles
southward from Its bead. Incase (be llnnl ap
propriations requlslt—slso,ooo—for ttio comple
iloa of these Improvements Is made during the
present session of Congress, onr shipping will
nave tho use of tbo increased depth of water
-sixteen loot—throughout tho entire chimnul
between Lttko Erie amt Lake Huron, In IHSI, ex
cepting nt two points,—at Lake Ucorgo and 'tho
East Nccbtsh Rapids.
“Thework In I.ako George 13 under contract
(or completion In IbJfil.
“The improvement of tho channel at tho East
Kceblsh Itaplds has boon In tho hands of tbo
Government of tbo Dominion of Canada. It has
up to tho present tlmcsecured thirteen mid ono
bulflcet of water, available for navigation,
through a channel 150 feet wldo,
"There is a most pressing necessity for tho com
pletion, hy tho Dominion Government, of Its
work nttnis point to sixteen feet of water at
least by the time (hat depth of water Is obtained'
la Lake George In IWB. , . Al ,
"Urcat apprehension Isexprossed that this will
Dotbouecouipllshed. It Is obvious, however,
that, in tho event of failure, fajftullan Intnrcats
will bo Directed Injuriously, tf common with
ours, though In less degree.
"The Immense expenditures during tbo lastfow
Icars by our Government upon tbo Haull Bio,
larlo Lock, Canal, and Hlver will bo entirely
avallablo to tbo advantage of our lako murine
and to tbo vast Interests of tho Northwest that
now await upon the completion of this Improve
ment only wnen therein free navigation, wltn
sixteen feet of water, throughout tho entire
channel between these lakes."
In conclusion, Mr. Ely miucstod tbolnllnenco
of tho United Btutes Government with tho Gov
ernment of tho Dominion of Canada for tbo
earliest completion possible of Uiu work now In
Its bands nt tbo East Neobish Itaplds.
To this communication John. Hay, noting
Secretory of Hlatc, replied that bo bad submit
ted tbo matter to. Sir Edward Thornton, tho
Drltish Minister at Washington. Tbo latter re
sponds, submitting n copy of tbo report of a
committee or tbo Privy Council for Canada
upon this subject, from which It would appear
that tho best channel is nut Uiot which tbo
Canadian authorities have been engaged In Im
proving, but Is ono which Is nearer to tbo shoro
of tbo United Btatcs. This report proceeds to
itatu:
“That during tbo past summer a careful ex
amination was made of tbo locality In question
fur tbo purpose of determining the nature and
extent of tbo operations which bavo been ear*
Hod on for tbo improvement nf tbo channel,
sad to ascertain tbo amount of work remaining
tube executed to oomploto tbo same, and its
probable cost.
“That tbo linos of sounding taken were ex
tended across tbo channel from the Canadian
to too American shore, and that tbo results ob
tained show tbut the natural channel Is not that
*blcb the Department of Public Works has been
engaged In Improving during tbo past four
Jean, but Is one nearer to tbo American sboro.
“Tbut It Is known that In funner years this
channel (nearer the American shore) was tbut
forked out by tbo shore ranges for and fol
lowed by vessels, but that of late yours it bas
wen übandnned fur a more crooked and sbuulur
one on tbo Canadian side.
Thai from Information obtained from tbo olH
ferln charge of tbo Improvements being made
efthe Government of the United Suites In this
Hvertt would appear that the portion'of tbo
over lu which the Dominion bus been engaged
jnluierovlngbas been omitted in the oxumlim
uon made on tbo part of tbo United States Gov
ernment.
‘That the existence of this bettor channel
Warcr to the American shore Is a serious mat
w.-uno which demands Investigation before
•py further expenditure bo made, to determine
absolutely tbo accuracy of the soundings taken
(anyear; because, if correct, n belter channel
uu bo hud at a leas expense by fallowing a
teurso nearer to tbo American shore than by
tonqilctlng tbo work undertaken by tbo Depart
ment of Public Works.
„ that tbo estimated cost of completing a aban

maouibon tbo Canadian side Is $208,120, and to
Huaplbte one of the same width and depth near

CONCERNING FREIGHTS.
According to tho Cleveland //<mfd “Vessel
owners are paying considerable attention to
charters, although thorn are not many of them
made Just now*. A number of coal charters hnvo
boon made at sl, mid tboro are loads which are
wnltingfor vessels at that price. It may be that
freights will go higher, hut there Is nothing cer
tain in regard to It. Vessel-brokers arc gene
rally reserved, and do not Ilko to prognosticate
or give charters at present.”
Tho schooners 1. N. Foster and Ella Murton
have boon chartered by tho llnltlinoro & Ohio
Railroad Company to carry coat from Sandusky
to upper lake ports.
Tho Toronto Globe says: “There Is no move
ment yet among vessel men In Toronto Harbor
in tho way of making engagements. It Is u cer
tainly that shippers have tillered (1.23 pm* 1,1)00
on lumber from hero to Oswego, but wo have not
heard of any vessel men having accepted a
charter at that rate. On tho contrary, (hoy aro
asking (I.3'j. Doth parties are lying ntf easily so
far. as there Is no hurry yet for two weeks or
more. About grain rates there Isaii uncertainly.
Shippers say they havo been tlgurlng and llml
that railway rales will leave them about oven If
they should pay tho vessels two cents from hero
to Kingston. This will bo no better than thu
rato Inst year. Nothing can be done with vessel
men on such a basis us that with lumber offering
at 91.23.”

The sharp westerly wind yesterday drove the
Ice off this shore at Lake Michigan.
The smalt tug Frank Crane, belonging to the
Chicago Dredging St Dock Company, went Into
commission on Saturday.
Yesterday Ibo tug Flossie Tbloioko made a
reconnaissance up to Mud Lake, In the South
ilrnnch, for the purpose of ascertaining the
condition of the Ice in the slips and the possi
bility of reaching the schooner H. G. Andrews,
moored In A Slip, so us to transfer her to the
Chicago Company's West Hide dry-dock. The
Ice was found altogether too Arm to bo pene
trated by anything except an Ironclad tug.
With the exception of cue or two small Helds,
the Ice bus all disappeared from the Illinois Si
Michigan Canal between Chicago and Lcmont.
The lugs Mary MoLano, F. S. Uutler, Diamond,
aud brothers will occupy one of Miller brothers*
dry-docks to-day for calking and other repairs.
Thu MuLuno Is to be provided with anew driving
bearing. . ...

The upper gorge lib the Maumee, above role
do, gave way on Friday. Tbs Ice went crushing
against the temporary span erected at the Penn
sylvuula bridge, and then formed a temporary
gorge against the piles supporting It. and
swerved the truck some twelve or fourteen
Inches out of position, so that It Is impossible
fur trains to cross over. At and below the
bridge the lee is still gorged aud piled up, but it
Is thought that it will get away without any seri
ous result. 1

MAIL BOBBERY.
Another Carrier Brought to Grief for
Stealing Money-Letters.
T.jsnmlcr Tiffany, Ono of the Oldest Km
[ilnycs In tho Ofllce, (lie Culprit.
He Was Sent to Jail in Default of
$3,000 Ball.
Auolhor long-time nml systematic robber of
tho United Hiutes malls has come to grief hi the
person of LysimderTlirnny, a limn uver.V) years
of age. who has been thirteen years employed
hi this city ns a letter-carrier, uml who was al
wnyslooked upon aa a trustworthy man. There
arc many persons lit Chicago who know him, he
having mam at one Unto proprietor of tho old
Tremnnt House stables. Hols particularly well*
known In sporting circles, and his large circle «if
ncaualntunccs, and cspcciullythoHOon the South
Side mute, where he served tho mall, will be as
tonished to learn of his arrest. Tiffany's tie
toetlon was tbu result of long and
patient watching and clover detective work on
tho part of .Special* Agent Stuart, who has charge
of the Chicago Division, and l*o»M)iHcc Inspcct
urs Seyholt and llcaslutw. Those olllcers will
testily that they saw Tlirany stealthily secure
lour letters at the I’ust-OJllco yesterday noon,
conceal them In a coat pdeitet, ami when arrest
ed at tils Imine. near the corner of Wen Van
Ihircn hired uml Marshfield avenue. In an hour
afterward. the same letters were found con
cealed in the pocket of a pair of paiitiilooiis In n
elo*et, where theyweru placed by the prisoner
and uckuowledgi.'ii by him to have been taken
from the I'om-UIHco but an hour previously.
Thueusu of Tiffany Is Hlmlhir to that of Koos,
dross. L’oey. and others, ull of whom were de
tected In tho act
OK nonni.vo THE .MAILS
and were sent to the Penitentiary. Cocvwns but
lately pardoned out by ox-President Hayes,
upon wnom tho litliueiieeof prumlnunt men was
brought to bear In his bolmll.
l-or a long Dm,; past complaints of missing
letters containing money have been made nt tbo
Fost-Oillcu by merchants mid others, and Special-
Agent Smart was quite ofum Informed of mem,
but among tho many employes in tho I'ost-Uilleu
It was a difficult matter to fasten the guilt upon
any one, much less upon u man like TllTuny,
who hud so long tmd the conlMcnce of his su
periors uml, in fact, of all with whom he came in
contact. Du was believed to bo in good circum
stances, nml, therefore, such a thing us his re
sorting to tho opening of letters and
stealing tho money they might contain was nut
entertained. Hut tho Special Agent' uml his
assistants pursued mo search vigorously at all
times, and sometimes under tho most trying cir
cumstances. mull they saw Tiffany abstract tho
lour loiters above mentioned from a box at bis
desk la tho Carriers' Department, and carry
thorn home. Tllfmiy was employed yesterday
noon at his de*k In Dio I’ost-Olllee, tho same us
other carriers Immediately about him. Tho
three officers above named saw him take out tbu
four letters from a box. put a couple uf rubber
bands around ihotii, and then doxtrously place
them behind him on a chair or stool.
He sat down on them for a moment,
and In a few moments afterwards, looked
cautiously about to sue that no one
observed. He (hen adroitly thrust his bund be
hind him and placed tho loiters In an outside
pocket of his overcoat. To cover his manipula
tion of the package ail tho more he took out of
another pocket hm handkerchief mid placed It in
that where tho letters wore. Ouo of tho letters
was addressed to tho Western Nows Company,
another to John It. Anderson & Co., No. 40 Kun
dolph street, and came from Demurest A; Coe, at
Muscatine, la. A third was loU. Becker, No. tkl
Wuliash avenue, from D. W. Mull, of Cannons
burg. 0.. and the fourth to John Kninz, confec
tioner at Nob. 78 mid HO Statu street. Noun of
them wero opened when found at Tiffany's
house, mid all wore received in tho malls yes
terday.
Tltfimy was appointed a letter-carrier by
Frank snormaii when that gentleman was I'on
master, and was at one time, before he entered
tbo Government employ, reputed tube worth
SitJ.IM), which Is mild to have been lost by Dio
payment of a note given by a brother, and which
be Indorsed. Ho has three married daughters,
and resided In tho name house with one of them.
'l'lirany became dissolute and Intemperate In his
habits, and wits reformed nt tho Washingtonian
Home. Du was committed to Jail last evening
In default of Hff.ooo ball on the mittimus of
United Slates Commissioner Iloyne, uml will bo
examined before tho Itittor this morning at 10
o’clock.
The amount of Tiffany's peculations from let
ters cannot be arrived at, nor. Is It known over
how long a period of time they have extended.
TIFFAXV lUX'UN'KS TO TALK.
Aroportorof Tm: TitniUNE called ut lho Jail
last evening and »uw Tilfany, who’.declined to
give any statement concerning the matter. Hu
merely said that he wan innocent ol-
ntion tu steal tho letters and breaktheac open.
Appearances, ho confessed, wero against hint,
but nn innocent man was Kimolltncs arrested
for crlmo ho had not uommlttcd. Ho did not do
slro to say anything further about tho matter
until ho hud consulted an attorney, lie said
his Hiuldcii and unexpected arrest ami thrown
him into a framoof mind that would not Just
then permit of his making an Intelligent state
ment of tho nlfulr. Tito reporter asked him If It
was customary for tho carriers tu (alee letters
from tho I’ost-Oillcu and carry thorn about in
their pockets und to their homos, and Tilfany
said It was done moro or loss In eases wlipro they
have misdelivered letters and roturmyf to the
places and taken them up. That was about all
the Information that tho prisoner would give.
Tilfany Is a man of about medium bight, sharp
features, intelligent in speech and manner, and
seemingly cool and collected. He Is u widower.

Tho Secretary tbon announced that tbo seat

Cm.itMhtrs. 0., March Ll.—Tho Demoerallo
pairors In Ohio have expressed no little grief
that dm*. Foster was not selected by President
darlleld to fill a Cabinet portion. Their efforts
to make It appear that the Governor is sadly
disappointed, and that tho new Administration
has made a great mistake, find but few In
dorsers among tbo Republicans, and those. It
might he stated, arc only vexed at (holr own
misfortune, for bo It known that tho chances of
tholrnwn advancement in political life largely
depended upon tho Governor's entering tho
Cabinet, Then) bo a few who are sadly disap
pointed; but that their Interest wont no further
than thoir personal aspirations, Is now quite
apparent.
Gov. Foster, nationally, had no aspirations
whatever lo vacate tho office ho now holds fur n
Unbind oillcc, While ho would have accepted
had (he President desired, he lung ago Informed
Prenldcnt Gnrlinld that he had no vanity to
gratify by being tho recipient of such an tumor,
Another reason which might—and very probably
did—make tho Governor lukewarm about going
Into tho Cabinet was that It would give rise to a
story that it was a bargain made at tbo time ho
withdrew from (ho Senatorial contest. That
Gov. Foster has been greatly annoyed by tho In
discreet utterances of bis political friends, has
long been apparent.
There has always been one agreeable feature
noticeable to nil newspaper writers who have
called upon Gov. Foster for Information of a
political nature, and that is Ids open
and frank manner of expressing himself.
If he could answer tho question asked,
ho would say so frankly. If engaged at
tho lime, he would name an hour when ho would
oo at leisure. There has never heen that eva
sive and mysterious air assumed by him which
would lead one to suspect that there was a hid
den moaning In bis replies; and It Is generally
admitted that Gov. Foster is iho most easily ap
proached of any public man In the Htnte.
A few days prior to going to Washington,
there were ten correspondents in bis ofllce at
otm time. Thu Governor, looking up from Ins
desk, surveyed tho crowd, mid laughed out
right. •• Well, what have I done now?''
Inquiry was made us lo tho Cabinet, when ho
replied: “I do not know a thing about it inure
than any of you. I have no particular aspira
tions In that direction."
nun of tbo number Dion spoke up and said:
•Ttuvornop, If you go Into tho Post-Ollloe De
partment, you can give iih an oillue. can’t you?”
•* Vos." tut replied, •• every one of yim shall go
to Washington If Igo. It will be a mutter of
self-protection oil my part to have you oil along.
Vou represent about nil the bit? papers there
ore. mid It will save me being annoyed with (tut*
ting ueipuilnled with a now crowd. Hut.” bind
he, “ 1 wouldn't thako auy very elaborate nr*
rangcMnetm about going."
Charlie Foster stands high, very high, In Ohio
to-day,—much stronger than before he wan
elected (inventor of the .State: and, when it was
settled that ho not gu into (Jarlield's Cab
inet. there was a reeling of relief nmomr He
publicans. there being nmny who regarded the
ideiitctiimt-Uoveriior as a weak successor
to Foster: and then there is a universal senti
ment demanding that the (iovernor accent a re--
iioinlimnun this year. It Is tlio off year in Ohio
politics, and many fear (hat the Democrats
might he successful, ns they were the year fol
lowing Mr. Hayes' election. With Foster there
would bousenseofeecurityfrom the start; this
the Democrats acknowledge. The present Ad
ministration has lieon a clean one, though the
presonl General Assembly has done the party
no good, but. on the other hand, has furnished
a good supply of ammunition for the Demo
crats to use next summer. If (Sov. Foster will
accent a ruaomlmulon, ho will go In with a
whirl; hut, should he decline, and a new man be
nominated, the Democrats may again bo able to
repeat the story of 1H77.

ISLANDS FOR SALE.
Tlic Duulhli West India Island* Again
for Sale—Project o( Their Purehtmo by
the United State* Attain Agitated.
Wasiiisuton, U. C., March 11!.—Last August It
was telegraphed from Havana that tho French
were In treaty with Denmark for tho purchase
of tho Islands of St. Thomas and St. John. Tho
report was not credited then at tho State De
partment, fur the reason that President Hayes
had reiterated wtmt his predecessor found It
necessary to say,—that any attempt to transfer
the colonial possessions of Denmark on this
continent to another European nation would be
regarded as an unfriendly out, and treated ns
such. In making this announcement in tho
Now York Herald last August there was also
added upon tho same authority that It wan olll
dally known that the Islands wore tor sale, and
tnoro was a nope that sooner or later they would
bo bought by tho United States. Tho subject Is
again revived by tho publication In thof/rmidof
to-day of a communication from St. Thomas to
tho effect that the United States is anxious to
buy, and that Denmark Is ready to sell. Mr.
mile, tho Danish Charge d'Alflros, says tho
islands or St. Thomas and St. John tiro fur sale,
but If the United Slates desires to purchase
them thoro must not boa repetition of tho net
of IM7. by which the treaty entered Into by Den
mark was ignored by tho Senate, though nearly
three yean* were allowed In which to cousum
nmlo negotiations. Of course lie knew nothing
of tho source of tho writer’s Information, ami
oven If such negotiations wero pending and pro
gressing under tho last Administration, tho
present one would not bo bound, according to
American precedent, to curry out tho agree
ment.
Ilogardlng Mr. Illllo's diplomatic position, it
might ho inferred that If the United States really
wishes to buy tho Danish West India Islands
tho way to proceed Is fur Congress to place tho
necessary amount at tho disposal of the Statu
Department, and with such assurances of
earnestness and fair dealing negotiations
broken nil in 1870 can now bo
renewed. Uis evident that tho Danish Govern
ment sUllreseiils tho humiliation pat upon hor
by the failure of ourSeimto to ratify tho treaty
negotiated In tho days of Secretary Seward, and
cares only to proceed to business hereafter in u
buslitess-liko way.*
At tho State Department the only Information
that could ho obtained was, that during Presi
dent Hayes' Administration no such negotia
tions wero thought of, and since President Gar
hold hud been Inaugurated (hero had not been
time to think of so important a matter. Never
theless thoro la a reasonable certainty that tho
development of tho hitoroccaulo ennui subject
has renewed tho Importance of possessing (ho
harbor of St. Thomas us a naval station, and that
tho wholu question may bo reopened In a short
time In a direct and practical way. The basis of
auch negotiations will bo furtbur strengthened
by concessions hearing upon another outlying
post In tho Paclilo, through which tho merits of
tho Moitroo doctrine. It is said, tiro tu bo main
tained una no longer proclaimed.
MISS ISHMAEL AVENGED,
A Hl}'ilorloiii7litb Appear* at Itlldiitglu
mid llnui* Her Nuppo«od Murderer*
on a Tree*
Lrrrt.u Kook, Ark., March 11,— I Tho sequel to
the tragic murder of Miss Ishmuoi, uuur Jones
boro, Craighead Comity, was learned to-duy.
Tho negroes arrested on suspicion of tho murder
woro Green Harris, John Woods, Giles Deck, aud
Hurt Harkins. Tho wero examined at New
Haven Church, seven miles north of Jonesboro,
before Justices of tho Peace Akers and Jackson,
and by them committed and ordered to Jail to
await the notion of the Grand Jury at tho up*
preaching Circuit Court. Pending their removal
to prison tho prisoners were placed hi thochuroh
under a strong guard, the Intention being to
lodge thorn In the Jonesboro Jail early the next
morning. The examination drew together
hundreds of people, aud the excited crowd
swarmed Into the church during the
examination or tho accused or gathered on tho
grounds without thu edition discussing the
tragedy in low, significant tones. Thocxamlna-
Hon occupied some lime, and night had fallen
mo it was concluded, when tho prisoners bud
been disposed of us before slated, and tho people
begun lu withdraw.
Threats had been made of lynching, but many
Intineniiul planters dlscuimuniunuud such pro
ceeding, urging that (bo law, If allowed to take
Its course, would avenge the crime. H was sup
posed that their counsel hud effect, ami that tho
prisoners would be dispatched by legal means.
Thu guards uroiiml thu church wore doubled
however, in anticipation of mob violence. This
anticipation was unhappily realized. About (he
hour of midnight, when (ho guards were be
ginning to (eel drowsy, they wero aroused by tiio
sound of approaching footsteps, which came
from thu vicinity of the adjacent woods.
Tho next Instant, us if by magic, a
crowd of masked uien, variously estimated at
from SWO to hud, •prang out from thu shadows
of the trees nud, surrounding thu church,
dumauuod thu prisoners. Tho request not being
compiled with, tho guards wero ovorimwored in
a twinkling, the doors aud windows of tue roue
/rumu building smashed In. and the terrlUvd
negroes drugged out aud liustlci to tho nearest
tree. Tho prisoners begged niuiously for inclr
Ives, but tbolr captors wore deaf to uil entreaty,
aud in loss than tlfteoii minutes after their
capture thu (our negroes wero dangling la thu
nlr in tho agonies of death. nil having boon sus
pended on ono and tho same tree.
Having completed tholr ghastly work flic
lynchers silently dispersed. leaving tho bodies of
tliotr vi<?llnin ntll) banging, and presenting n
horrid spectacle in ihg pale moonlight. im (ha
night wind*) swayed thorn to and fro. It Is said
Unit nil tho negroes confessed tholr frit lit beforu
thoy were hanged, Tho excitement in tho vicin
ity of the scene has subsided. Tho hotter class
of planters deprecate tho means employed tor
tho punishment of tho crime, though thoy hold
Ihnt tho murderers of Miss Ishinnel deserved
swift Justice.

TROPIC-Fit UIT IAX A TIVE,

CONSTIPATION
Invariably causes general de
rangement of the entire system
and begets many diseases that
arc gloomy in their aspect, and
often hazardous to health and
life. Persons of a costive habit
are subject to melancholy feel
ings, headache, low spirits, tim
idity, defective memory, gloomy
forebodings, nervousness, fev
ers, languor, drowsiness, irrita
ble temper, indisposition, and
other consequent symptoms
which often unfits the sufferer
for business or agreeable asso
ciations.
Regular Habit of Body
alone can correct the evils enutfl
erated above, and nothing suc
ceeds so well in achieving and
maintaining this condition as
la^^ve
By its use not only is the system
renovated and cleansed of all impuri
ties, but in consequence of the hanno
itious changes thus created, tjiere per
vades the entire organism u feeling of
satiety; the mental faculties perform
their functions with renewed vivacity,
and there is an exhilaration of mind,
freedom of thought, and perfect heart’s
case, that bespeak the full enjoyment
of health.
TROPIC-FRUIT LAXATIVE will
prove of inestimable value to the weak
and debilitated of both sexes. In all
cases of nervous, mental, and physical
suffering, brought about by stoppages,
its use is especially valuable. The
cleansing and depurating properties of
the preparation create changes that are
both marvelous and gratifying; murky,
gloomy, and sallow complexions, with
blue and dark discolorations about the
eyes (conditions that are allied to bil
iousness, dissipation, and ill-health), are
by degrees normally corrected and
transformed into bright and clear com
plexions, in which the ruddy tints of
health arc bountifully depicted.
TROPIC-FRUIT LAXATIVE
is put up in bronzed tin boxes only.
Price, 25 cents.
Large boxes, 60 cents.
