XJSW YORK. November 21.— Bradstrcet's
to-morrow. will say:
Favorable conditions still - govern the
trnde situation. The mild open fall
weather is complained of, as restricting
Iho movement of winter goods at retail,
nnd delaying collections at. a', few points,
but it is not to be forgotten that pres
ent temperature favors to continued
Rxowth of the cotton crop, and a larger
yield than expected, while it is enabling
the railroads to make a far better fight
against the prevailing freight congestion
than was earlier deemed possible.
"Export trnde returns look better than
preliminary, reports foreshadowed. Ag
ricultural products, owinp to high prices.
have g-one ahroad in smaller volume than
expected.* but there "Is, evidently a* larger
movement of manufacttired g-oods: -
RAILROAD SITUATION.
Tho railroad situntion is certainly a re
markable one. The complaint is no longer
cne of car shortage, of lack, of motive
power, or even of sufficient yard facilities.
The fact is becoming ap;ireciated that the
business of the country . offered to the
railroads is so large that new measures
must be devised to meet the new condi
tions.
The strength of the raw material -has
been of benefit to the cotton groods mar
ket, which" however, remains quiet but
Fteady.
Among the features brought out in tele
prams to Bradstreet's this week, is the
increased activity noted by jobbers in
holiday goods, especially in the better
grades of jewelry and fancy products.
Business failures for the. week number
201, as against 223 this week last year.
BULLETS IN THE AIR;
Cnme from n Grnte in Which There
Ilnd Been Xo Fire for Tear*.
The family of Mrs. J. C. Mitchell, liv
ing on tho Mechanicsville turnpike, near
the toll pate, were thrown into a panic
yesterday morning by the explosion of
several cartridges in a grate in the bed
room of Mrs. -Mitchell.
In the room were several persons, in
cluding the 5-year-old grandson of Mrs.
Mitchell. The day was cold and it was
.decided to light a fire in an open grate
in the room which had not been used for
tho past ten years, the house being
heated by stoves. Suddenly a noise like
the report of a pistol was hoard. an<3
the child, little James Bryant, fell to the
floor, clutching his side. Mrs. Mitchell
rushed to bis assistance when another
report was heard followed a few mo
ments later'by another. The family be
came alarmed, and rushed from tht>
house.
It was found that the child had been
rtrucfc in the side by a bullet. Fortu
nately it did not penetrate, but left n
black bruise.
How the cartridges g-ot into the fire
place is a mystery which the family can
not explain.
NOTES -OF LEGISLATURE.
The chair-men of the various commit
tees of the Senate i.and House held a
mooting- yesterday afternoon ; at 4 o'clock
at the Capitol for the purj^ose of ar
rangins for* X lre commencement of the
■work before the several commitiees. and
the numerous liub^c^mmittees, and for
the fixing of times for mooting- so as to
avoid conflict. Nothing of importance
was done furtlver than to discuss the
situation and the plan of .procedure.
Practically all the real work of the
General Assembly will be done in com
mittees for some, time . yet. until suffi
cient progress 'shall' have been made
•with the work of conforming- the statutes
to the new Constitution by the com
mittees having; charpe of the various sub
divisions of the . work. Several, of the
far-seeing members arc already savins:
that the Insufficiency of the Edwards
plan is already apparent, as indicated by
the effort to divide the work among
the committees. -
Secretary Button, of the Senate, pre
sented penknives to the senators, and
Included the reporters, and Clerk John
"W. Williams, who presented to the mem
t/ers of the House knives, also gave them
fountain pens. Mr. Williams also re
membered the reporters for the press.
The knives and pens of the members are
paid for out of the allowance to members
for stationery, while those given to in
dividuals not members are personal pifts
of the clerks, and not out of the State
funds.
The House Committee on PrivilegVs
and Elections will meet next Tuesday,
and it is expected that the contested
case from Norfolk city will bo called. It
is not considered likely that, tlie contest
will be prosecuted further. Indeed; there
has been no procedure in the case up tc

"I never drank coffee until after I
was married," says a lady from Adair
ville. Ga.
"My husband drank coffee and T thought
it was nice to drink with him, and we
enjoyed 1 »t together. After a while I
found that my digestive organs were
much disturbed, but not knowing' the
cause, I went on drinking coffee and
growing more wretched each day.
"In due time, three .little* girls came
1o what ought to have been a happy
homo, but I was nervous and unhappy
myself and could not make anyone else
happy; to my great consternation, two
of my little girls had .spasms, and I, a
nervous wreck; found it impossible to eat
anything that did not hurt my. stom-
'•I finally concluded I had heart disease,
my heart pained me so much after eat
ing, and my head' was so dizzy, I often
thought 1 would fair when trying, to walk
across the room.
"I tried every medicine I heard of, and
had different doctors treat me, but with
Jio benefit. I could not sleep halfythe
night, and never slept sound. I would
wake out of a frightful dream only to
doze and wake again. .
"Finally, I read of Posium Food Coffee,
and my husband, got a package from our
grocer; 1 made some accordingito direc
tions. I liked its flavor very much, and
the first cup seemed to help my. stomach.
I used it .every meal, sometimes making
a whole meal on Posium, and a bit of
broad.
"I Improved bo fast that 1 could soon
anything I wanted. I began to look
no much better my friends were sur
prised, and said I looked as. well as when
1 v.as first married. I could sleep as'
sweetly "as. a. child. Of course, the chlK
dren quit coffee and drank Posium, and
they all began, to fatten, and the' spasms
stopped. ;

Will Be the Adyanta^bfc
riyevi From an Old Remedy
in New Form. • :
Mr. Tragle, of the Tragle Drug Co., of
Cur City, Interested.
The Public Marvel, and Doctors Every
' where Pleased. !.-'-'
Nowadays it takes considerable to as
tonish \ the world. So many wonderful
things have been discovered -in the past
century that it has seemed almost impossi
ble that anything more could 2 . be "."'found to
add to the comfort or benefit of man.
Probably no branch of science has made
such wonderful strides as have been made
in the practice of medicine. Diseases that
ji number of years ' ago were considered
fatal, are now known to be curable.' Even
consumption 1s no longer looked upon with
the dread that it formerly inspired. -
Jt is right on this line of wasting dis
eases that we now have news of a won
• derful discovery— one -that is bound to
revolutionize the science of medicine and
startle the world. Every pne is familiar
with methods that have been' employed
by physicians for years, in cases that they
were afraid would developinto a decline.
In all troubles of the throat, lungs,
bronchial tubes and other similar ailments
that were known- to end disastrously,
about the first thing the doctor would do
would be to recommend cod liver oil, for
cod liver 'oil has been recognized- for a
great many years as possessing peculiar
medicinal properties particularly adapted
for the cure of such troubles. " .
Every one knows the objection, however,
to the use of this nauseating-:remedy. ; S6
extremely disagreeable is the taste and
smell of cod liver oil, that many, people
have actually been unable to take a single
dose of it. Many others have made heroic
efforts to take, the medicine,' but have
been' obliged to abandon it after strug-
Kling-' with the horrible stuff for a few
days. ... i
The consequences is that thousands have
drifted into incurable disease who might
have been saved, had it been possible to
administer this potent medicine. Enough
people have been able to assimilate cod
liver oil to prove to the medical profession
and the world at large its intrinsic value.:
Such patients as were Dlessed with unus-'
ually strong stomachs derived benefit from
cod liver oil. Why, then, could not a form
of it be devised, to be administered to
patients whose digestive organs had been
weakened by disease?
This is exactly what' scientists and
chemists have, been aiming 1 . at for years,
and this is exactly what. has been accom
plished' by two prominent French chem
ists. Their secret has been> brought to
America, and our own Mr. Tragic has
succeeded in connecting himself with the
prominent firm of Boston chemists who
are placing this new preparation on the
market. The preparation in question, now
that it has been discovered, like all other
great inventions, is simple. By a peculiar
process the liver of the live cod is treated
in such a manner that there is obtained an
extract which contains all. and only all.
of the curative properties that have made
cod liver oil famous. The horrible-smell
ing, nauseating-ta sting fat that has always
been a part of this remedy, lias been left
entirely behind.
This curative extract is the basis of
Vinol. which Mr. Tragle is presenting to
the public. It is placed in a delicious table
wine, and in itself being tasteless, the
consumer is unable to distinguish "the fact
that he is taking anything more than a
pleasant port wine.
Mr. Tragle has indeed struck it just
right in making- arrangements to handle
this new remedy, which goes under the
name of Vinol. Wine of Cod Liver Oil. It
is worthy any one's while to talk to h'm
about it and to learn directly from him
the good that is being done by finding; a
way to administc-r what has always been
a horrible and. much dreaded medicine, in
a form -that is actually pleasant, to say
nothing of being a hundred times more
efficient.
this time that would indicate that the
contest would be pressed. Messrs.
Whitehead . and Woodward are the sit
ting- members, whose seats are contested
by Messrs. S. S. Lambeth, Jr., and W:
Lindsay Bibb.

fiom Bostoy yesterday, having- trav
eled from Boston to Xew York on the
Fall "itiver line with Carrie Nation and
her satchel of hatchets.
Dr. Pitt says he did noot seek
an introduction, but he bought one of her
hatchets.' He describes lver as ; being
rather a motherly-looking woman, who
carried her hearers with her.
In reference to the Boston incident,
wtere'Dr: Pitt's. remarks on the "Future
of the Educated Negro" before the Bap
tist Congress were answered by a. negro
preacher, he was . rather reticent, but-, in
view of the 'fact that the. case was mis
understood, made a statement for the
press. ■ . -
Dr. Pitt made no reply to his adversary,
thinking-" none % necessary.. He further
said the negro preacher stated that the
greatest industrial school and missionary
work ever . done' was conducted in
the South during , the days of
slavery.-- Dr. Pitt makes' New

and its solution lays, in the hands of the
Southern people. He was shown every
courtesy and attention while there, but
was not well and so was unable to attend

GERMAN DEFICIT $37,000,000.
Proposed Increase of Tax on Beer
nn«l Toliaceo — Socialist Gain.
BERLIN, November 21.— 1n the Reich
stag- to-day, Baron Yon Thielman, sec
retary of the treasury, announced that the
budget for 1902 had a deficit "of $37,000,000.
The deficit for 1902 was $17,900,000.'. It would
not do, the secretary said, to be always
providing for deficits by loans. What
ought to be done was to increase the Im
perial revenues as to balance' expendi
tures. Looking around for suitable ob
jects for increased tariff, he saw beer and
tobacco, and begged the members of the
House to keep these in view while think
ing- how to balance 1 the budget.
Baron Yon Thielman also intimated that
the government intended as ( soonas prac
ticable to propose pensions for widows and
orphans. Assuming, that. $50 was enough
for the pensions of widows and yrphans,
it would take $40,000,000. It was impossi
ble to say- how much .. the .government
tariff bill would yield, but a mechanical
estimate based on the present imports
showed that the customs receipts would
increase. $20,500,000. Secretary Yon Thiel
man mentioned considerations that, re
duced the estimate largely.'
The secretary's hint that the govern
ment was meditating pensions for widows
and orphans, caused a stir among the
members, because it is one of the things
the Socialists advocate. The deficit is the
result of the financial depression, which
still affects almost every form of ' busi
ness, limiting the purchasing power of
every class. •
THE PRESIDENTS!/! ESSAGE. .
It "Will He Sent in Deeeitiber 2ml—
Tlie TniKts— The Tariff.
WASHINGTON. D. C November ~2\ —
During the next four or five days, as op
portunity may offer, the President" will
put the finishing touches upon his annual
message to Congress. It is undtrstcod
.that the message will be sent to Congress
'on the second day of the approaching'
Congress, Tuesday, December -<\, owing
to the fact that deaths of members of both
Houses have occurred during the recess,
which will necessitate an adjournment on
Monday. The document is. almost /com
pleted, but some points of it are to be
written finally, and the whole revised. '
At to-day's cabinet meeting, some por
tions of the President's forthcoming, mes
sage to Congress were considered, but as
the features of the document concerning
which any division of- opinion might arise
have not been prepared definitely, and will
not be until the President shall have time
to further discuss them with the leaders
in both branches of Congress, little re
specting the message was accomplished.
CANAL TREATY NO READY.
Secretary Hay brought with him to the
meeting some documents relative to the
negotiations pending with the Colombian
government respecting the canal ' treaty.
It is'stated that the President will not be
: able to say that he is ready to submit to
Congress a treaty with Colombia in ac
cordance with the Spooner act.*
Several leaders In both branches of Con
gress have been invited by the President
to call .upon, him at the Executive offices
next Monday. He will dicuss with them
matters, relating to. the trusts and to the
.tariff. The President hopes, as one result
of the talk with the Republican leaders,
to facilitate the work of the^approachihg
session of Congress, and pave the. way
for a reconciliation of any differences that
may arise between the two vHouses. "
