BUT REGEIVES *M. D* lAgcd Wisconsin Senator Changes Titles Because of Story. HOLDS BRAHANY TO BLAME Taft's New Assistant Secretary Introduces Stephenson in Role of Physician, Washington, July 24.?When Senator Stephenson walked into the executive otllces this morning looking for Presi? dent Taft?who never went to th'-- of? fices all day?he found Tommy Bra hany, the now assistant secretary, stt tlns behind a desk, beginning his lirst day s work at the W hite House. "Tommy, you certainly, have got me Into trouble.said "Dl"' Stephenson. his title of '"Und? ' bavins boon changed to "Dr." by the work of Bra hany, "How s that. Senator?'' asked Bra-? hany, and Assistant Secretary Rudolph j Foster looked up, expecting reproach ; to fall from the lips of tho eighty- I three-year-old Sehntor from Wisconsin, j "Well, 1 have be. n getting more than twenty letters a day front persons stit- j fc-rltig from Indigestion and deafness since you w-rote that story about me. and it begins to look as if i will have to give tip politics and go Into the business of curing stomach and ear Told "f III? "Doctoring." "Dr." Stephenson was telling Bra- t hany about three weeks ago how he [ used to attend to the sick and wounded . boys in the lumber camps of Wlscon- 1 sin sixty years ago, and declared thai j he had set more bones and dressed j more wounds than any surqeon In tiie country. Then the doctor confessed to Brahany that for thirty-nine years j lie had been taking a certain pill right after the principal meal each day. and that through ihi> lie kept bile and hearty. He also declared tha, some snuff taken through the nostrils In tho good, old-fashioned way was a great hcip in deafness, He told how he ban ilted former Senators Daniel, of Virginia; McEnery, of Louisiana, and M Da?rim of Mississippi by prescrlb Ihg snuff and pills to them. Brahany, who knows a good story end Is an expert on tariff matters all at tho same time, wrote for a New York papei tiie cures of the new doctor oi the Seriate. Result: The afflicted from all directions are now- tilling the tioti ator't malls with Inquiries. "What I told Brahany is true," said the "doctor" to a reporter. "What la good for a liorse is good tor a man. If you have ever watched a good vet? erinarian you will observe that when i. liorse is off Its feed he gives a huge pill of aloes and watches the effect. ! The horse soon picks up an appetite and Is again ready for work. .Now i ? se pills are composed largely ot aloes. When i was a young man In the lumber camps 1 could digest hard lack and bacon three times ti day und keep strong at that, i can do it now with the aid of these pills. As wo grow older we ate liable to suffer from deafness. I know positively that a little st.uff will help the hearing." And while th. new Senate- doctor was talking be was chewing gum?never | over one sllre st a tlm.- The doctor | has a redpe tor reducing the ticsh, and | guarantees to tike any tat mnn and : bring him out a regular Apollo, with? out Apollinaris, within slx. months. The recipe Is simple. Take several pond axes snd po di? rect to the lumber camps of Wisconsin. Use these axes in felling trees and chopping them up. sticking to the job consistently each day for six months, ' during the period confining to diet to bacon, hardtack and beans.

Fairbanks, Alaska July 34.?Profes? sor Uorschcll Parker of Columbia Uni? versity und Bolmore Browne or Taco ma arrived at Tolvlna on tho Xanana River late last night and reported that they failed to reach the summit of Mount McKinley although getting close tO tile top. Two attempts were made, one on the north and the other on the south peals. All attitude b( L'O.HJO feet was reached on tho north peak, und 19,000 on the BOUth peak. Mount McKinley terminates In twin peaks, each approximately 1:1,500 foot high. Several blizzards about the sum hilt prevented their scaling, Professor Parker Bald a heavy earth? quake was felt w hile th.' party was on the mountain.

They tried In |.; ami 1910, anil started on this almost successful expedition in January last. On the 1,1st occasion Ihey wcr-> tie-! comphnlcd by the redoubtable Dr. Frederick Cook. They approached the mountain from the Southeast, but fCUltd the southern slopes of the ,\las-' kan lunge so difficult '.bat It was Im-! posslblvi to make progress. . The season for climbing was aliiio> t over, and so it was decided to consider the expedi? tion as a mere reconholier and So use1 the Information It had given on an-, other occasion. rrofe.-sor Parker n - turned to civilization and left Mr. P.rowne and r>r.

I a tumor that I>r. Conk bad been to the! summit of Mount McKinley. Hl was convinced that It was a physical Im-! possibility for any man to go to the' top of th-? mountain and return lb nah v.ate. within a month, but Dr. Cook explained lightly that lie had found the! climb eafic: than he had expected ab? stained from going Into details, and stuck to his story. He published his account of his alleged tl'mb, "The Top) of the Continent." but madi the errori of including In it n photograph which he declared to be that of the summit, o.' Mount McKinley; In 1310 Professor Parker and Mr Browne set out again This time they attacked th" mountain fiom tin- south-, en?t. but found that the Ice made It absolutely Impossible to proceed. They i were confronted with 11,000 feet ot solid ice walls and pinnacles nnd were forced to turn back. Howove., ! the expedition was successful in one thing. Professor Parker nnd his com? panions Were fortunate enough to Identify th- very peak which Dr. Cook had photographel and labeled the sum- ! mil of McKinley, nnd discovered that j It was only 6.00? fed above sea level nnd miles from the real mountains. TrnvellnK Made Rosier. This last attempt, so nenriy success? ful, was directed at the nort m ast side | of the mountain, and was .undertaken 1 during the winter season. By tills I means the explorers obtained the ad- j vantage of the good trnvelltig over the snow and were able to reach the nc tual base a good dciil more easily than 1 if they had waited till the thaw had begun to make the surface soft.

Ho the house passed ah amendment to this section adding the words ''or such us shall have been exercised or directed by the Congress, or cither house there Democratic Senators have been anx? ious to get the bill for thla amend? ment through the Senate It had been inferred to the Senate Finance Com? mittee May and 110 action was. take;, upon It. A few days ago Sen? ator Unke Smith, of Oeorgla, Demo? crat, proposed an order relieving the Finance Committee from further con? sideration of the bill. The committee met this morning, and. after some discussion, decided tu postpone definite action on thin bill until next Monday The three Demo? cratic members who were present op? posed postponement, but the Republi? cans were In the majority. To-day's action by the committee is taken to mean that the committee will make an advers? report on the bill Much opposition to 't was Indicated during the committee meeting to-tray. Despite an adverse report from th? Finance Committee, the Democrat! will make a great effort to get the bill throiiKb tho Senate With many of the Republicans in opposition, that means a sturdy ilrbt. with probably protracted discussion.
