Nte \n Mr. Heller has been a sufferer 'fortwo years from sick headaches There is nothing in the every-day existence of a human being that makes his or her life so miserable as a sick beadacne and tbe root of that misery is in ninety-nine cases out of every hundred Catarrh A reporter went to Davis's pubiishiag house the other day and interviewed Mr Heller, who said: "For two years I suffered with sick head ache and as a consequence I whs miserable. My head was stopped up all the time and the pains over my eyes dulled my eyes. "Part, of tbe time 1 had no appetite. Kelt languid and when I would get up in the morning i felt as tired as when I went to bed the night before. "1 found out that I had catarrh and about (our months ago I went to see Drs.

"1 began treatment at once and soon began to feel better. I continued to improve and now my head is as clear as a bell. I don't have any more sick headaches, thanks to them, and I don't have that tired feeling. My ap petite is good now, too. "Altogether, 1 feel like a different person and I believe that Drs.

Schaefer Wins First in the Bill iard Match. , HEISER DEFEATED WITH EASE. Opening of the Great Balk Line Billiard Tournament at ritirkering Ball, Now York—Sketches of the Respective Con testants for Glory and a Fat Purse. Nkw York, Feb. 21.—The great balk Hue billiard tournament opened auspiciously at Chiokering ball last night. The hpnetntnrs were numerous and enthusiastic. Among them were some lading. There will be fifteen games of 500 points each, to lie played afternoon und & «to evening up to and Wifi- including March 1. There are six con i ,f testants, and each man will play one game with every other man. The six experts who are to struggle for tin* $4,000 in prizes guaranteed by the Brunswick - Bnlke-Collcnder company are: Jacob Schaef er, of Chicago; William H. Caton, of Hock Island, Ills.; J. Randolph Heiser and George F. Klossen, of New York; Frank Ives, of Chicago, and Maurice Daly, of Brooklyn. The man who proves tbe victor will get $1,600, tho second man $1,300, the third man $800, and tho fourth man $400, Schaef er and Hlossen will lie handicapped on the line principle, they playing the fourteen inch game, while the other four men will play the eight inch game. Schaefer Was Winner. Schaefer and Heiser, who played the open ing game, were warmly received. William Sexton was selected as referee and Ludd Scofield was chosen marker. Schaefer r a ; f. ' ' '1 J N> fiLdSHOK. won by a score of 333; winner's high est run, 105; win ner'» average, 17 T-39; loser's aver age, 11 3-30. Schaefer played a fourteen inch bulk line game against Heiser's eight inch gam»-. Jacob Hcbaefer was bora in Milwaukee, Feb. 3, 1855. He is 5 feet 0 inches in height, but baa a wonder ful reach, considering his size. His first effort with the cue was when fl years of age, on a pigeonhole table. At 15 he could easily defeatall the players in I»eaveu worth, young or old. His first match woe with Adam Klesson, champion of Wisconsin. Jake won, 1,400 to 503. After playing a tmmb r of matches he was put up against Slosson, but the ''student" ran away with him with a ^ » ^3* HTIIAKKKK. score of 400 to 080. The last important match Jake partici pated ill,was that played against Maurice Vigueur, at Cosmopolitan hall, New York, Jan. 36, 1886. Schaefer won this great match by a score of 3,000 to 8,838, with a grand average of 36 105-145. His stylo of play dif fers from that of any other billiardist. Quickness, dash, brilliancy and seeming care lessness are the characteristics of his work at tho table. He never studies out a shot, but plays off-hand. George F, Slosson's History. George Franklin Slosson was bom in De Kulb, St. Lawrence county, N. Y.,on March 5, 1854. Wh--n but 15 years of age he made his first public appearance as a billiardist in a tournament at Kochester. There he mot and defeated Maurice Daly and Moses Yot ter; in fact, he downed them all and took first money. Slosson ran against Schaefer in Indianapolis in 1873, and defeated the "Wizard" in a tournament. Up to date he has played twenty-nine games with Jake winning fifteen of them. In 1880 ha went abroad for the first time, and iu Paris was defeated by Maurice Vig naux, at the straight rail games, 4,000 points up. Tbe following year be was again de feated by the Frenchman at the champion's game. A third match was made with Vlg uaux, and this time Slosson was victorious, Sloeson's liest run at the straight rail throe ball game is 1,103. The Otlu-r Players. Maurice Daly was born April 35, PM9, in New York. He once won the championship of Maryland. J. Randolph Heiser was born on Washington's birthday, 1855, at Ander son, Ind. Among his early achievements was the defeat of Eugene Carter, now in Europe, lu a mach at Cleveland, and the taking of third prize in a tournament in the same city about the same period. Frank C. Ives, the "boy wonder," was bora iu Plain well, Mich., Oct. 30, 1866. His career on tlua green cloth began only a few year» ago, but he is looked U|K>n as the coming champion at billiards. William H, Caton was born May 10, 1850, at Solon, la. H s first impor tant match was in January, 1884, when he defeated Eugene Carter at straight rail billiards. The match was (or $1,000 a side. He has since succumbed to Carter's prowess. Caton has since defeated Francois Magioli, of Now Orleans, with a score of 3,000 to 1,300; Edward McLaughlin, of Philadelphia, with a score of 3,000 to 3,000, and Thomas Gallagher,of Cleveland, eight inch balk line game, with a score of 800 to 603. The Complete Score. Tbe following is the complete score; Heiser— 0, 11, 6, 8, 13, 5, 34, 9, 88, 0. J5, 10, 18, S3, 16, 1, 3, 38, 3, 13, 3, SI, 83, 0, 2, 7, 3, 0, 0.— Schaefer—3, 2.

Alrany, Fob. 21.—The state assessors' re port says in brief: There appears an increased assessment of real estate over the preceding year of $90,583,117, and an increased assess ment of personal property of $7,646,595, mak ing the total of real and personal for 1889, $8,567,439,757. Tbe assessors say that the personal in the state liable to taxation is fully equal to the assessed value of tbe real, while the real pays more than 90 per cent.

The Month Opposed to the Project—Able Orators Ergo Upon Congress the Claims of New York, Chicago. Washington and St. Louis to the Prlee. Wabhixoto», Feb. 21.—It was plainly ap parent soon after the house met that there was a fixed intention on the jiart of a num ber of southern Democrats to oppose the Worldÿ fair project because of tbe govern ment. appropriation of $1,509,006 provided for III the several bills. When the speaker announced that the consideration of the World's fair bill was tho regular order Mr. Csndlsr, of Massachusetts, the chairman of the committee in charge of the matter, made a statement concerning the allotment of time for discussion by the committee. Mr. Mills (Tex ) and Mr. McMillan (Tenn.) ob jected to calling up the bill. Mr. Mills was not satisfied with the allotment of time. He demanded half of the time in behalf of the opponents of the bill. A wrangle ensued. Mr. Kilgore (Tex.) finally raised tbe ques tion of consideration, and a vote was taken, resulting in 138 yeas and 31 nays. Democrats Agreed with the Bpenker. "No quorum," said Mr. Kilgore. "The chair overrules the point," »aid the speaker deliberately.

On the contrary most of them seemed to ba much pleased. Mr. readier Argue, for the Fair. Hr.

He defended the sections iu the general lulls appropriating money tor a government exhibit, contending that the people should have a chance to improve themselves by a study of an exhibit that tbe government of tho United States eon id make. It was clear that the fair would bring Into circulation an immense amount of money. The proposition wo* of as much interest to the south, that might voteagainst it, as it was to the other sections of the country. Mr. Flower for New York. Mr. Flower (N. Y, ) opened the discussion fur tile metropolis. lie said he believed I liât the selection of New York as the site for the fair meant the greatest possible success in this undertaking. New York would assume tho responsdiility to filiation tho fair and make it a success. He dwelt upon tho claim that the success of the (air depended upon the participation of foreign nations, and said that Chiuago, Ht. Louis and Washington could not offer proper facilities to foreign exhibitors because of their situation. Mr. Flower held up a telegram at tills moment and announced that Governor Hill had signed the New York Wend'« fair bill. (Applause.) New England Spanks fur the Metropolis. Ur. Moore (N. H.) said that a neighborly feeling impelled the people of New England to support the claims of the people of New York. On tbe Atlantic coast, he said, had been developed the fullest type of the flower of our civilization, and there was no place so fitting for the display of that flower as tbe city of New Y T ork. Mr. Covert (N. Y.) claimed that iu none of tiie uumiHiUng cities except New York could tie seen the navies of the world. He thought the greatness of this country could be viewed better nowhere else. lugs Muke, « Bit. Mr. Cummings (N. Y.j said that the fair should be held m a city commensurate with the greatness of the undertaking. The selec tion of a site was a vital point. The fair w ould not be a W orld's fair if it was not held at the commercial center of the conti nent. He advanced many arguments as to the accessibility of New York to all classes. His speech created much enthusiasm. k Hen H Mr. Tracy (N. Y.) said that Now York asked only a charter, and not a dollar. He dwelt on the fact that New York was more accessible to foreign visitors than was any other site. Mr. Quinn (N. Y.) spoke at length of the lieuutlesof New York barlior and tbe Hudson river. Mr. Sherman (N. Y.) said that he thought that New York was tbe heat site, but wherever tbe fair was bold it would be the grandest in history. Mr. McAdoo (N. J.) said that he was proud of St. Louis and Chicago, but no exposition would be a success unless it was accessible to the masses, as it would bo at New York. The works of genius and art were greater than those of agriculture. Tbe people of the United States should be educated by something more than an exhibition of material things. Chicago's Voice Kalsed. Mr. Hitt (Ills.) spoke in favor of Chicago. He said that Chicago was near the center of the United States. It was accessible to the mining regions of Pennsylvania and tho groat agricultural lielts of the west. Its tonnage was second iu size among American He said that If the fair was held in New York, foreigners would stop at of tbe republic aad turn back. Bold lu tjic west, they would go on and see the grand opulence 5f the interior. The site at Chicago was ready. It would leave a great hole in the treasury after Now York bad finished blasting away rocks fur a site there. He held that a very small proportion of tbe atteudauca at the fair would be that of fureiguers. In elusion he said that if the fair was held at Chicago it would he a memorable and mag nificent success. Another Windy City Gun Fired. Mr. Adams (HU) said that the (ample of Chicago had a habit of succeediug in what ever they undertook. In England and in France the customs and traditions of 500 years concentrated political and intellectual hie at tbe bead city of tho nation; with it was diffused throughout the Union. The farmers of the United States, rather than the residents ot great cities, held iu their hands the destinies of the republic. Mr. Adams spoke of the cosmopolitan character of the population of Chicago. He referred to the guarantee fund already raised, and said that almost every state in the Union was repre sented on the subscription list No money would be needed for the site, and none of tbe money expended on tbe fair would go toward the permanent improvement of the Chicago park system.

Washington Takes a Hand. Mr. MoComas (MdV) favored onexpoeitloax hut whenever it was held it should be held in Washington, in the- district hearing the name of tho discoverer of the continent—is tho District of Columbia, and at the_ Uotisl capital. He invoked the member* to select some higher motive and broad«» ground than locality. He appealed to th« friends of Chicago, New York and St Louis to come together in peace here—a national ground. There would bo no trouble about accom modations; every other house would las opemsl to visitors, and Baltimore was with in forty minutes travel. Mr. Lee (Va.) held that Washington was not only tba proper but the only place where the fair should lie held. If it was to bo national, il we were to invite tho governments of for eign nations, Washington was the proper site. Mr. Coleman (La.) argued in favor of the selection of Washington. Messrs Comp ton and Htockbrldge (Md. I urged Washing^ ton, the Mecca of American life, whorw there was no partisan spirit, as the props* place to hold the exposition. At 5:50 p. in. the house adjourned. Tba fair debate will lie continued. SIR JOHN IS HOPEFUL, »I« Think« Can ad a* h Troubla with UivrUr Ham Will It* Honorably Settled. Ottawa, Out., Fib. 2L—Hon. A.
