Caiapaip Will Cease Until Bat Weather
GET A REST
Meanwhile, Otis' Force Will Be In
creased to 40,000 Men Before
Fighting Is Resumed.
Washington, June 28. Secretary Al
ger, Adjutant Corbin and Colonel Bird,
assistant quartermaster - general in
charge of transportation, had an bonr'a
consultation with the president today
relating to the question of reinforce
ments for General Otis. A definite de
cision was reached to continue recruit
ing men at all the recruting stations,
and Secretary Alger said after the con
ference that General Otis would have
40,000 when the rainy season, closed for
resumption of active operations.
The enlistment are to be for eervice
in the regular army and recruits are to be
organized into regiments or assigned to
regiments already formed after enlist
meat. No organizations are to be ac
cepted if sufficient recruits can be ob
tained by regular enlistment. General
Corbin said the enlistments would be
for three years. Arrangements are to
be made at onca for increasing the
transportation necessary to get these
additional troops to the Philippines.
The decision to reinforce General Otis
by the end of the rainy eeason ia inter
preted to mean that active campaigning
will cease until the bad weather ends.
By remaining quiescent under good shel
ter during the rainy season it ia hoped
that the health of our troops will be
conserved and the danger front climatic
fevera reduced to a mininum. General
Otis haa cabled to the war department
that he has .the skeleton organizations
of two of three regiments which he pro
poses to raise in the Philippines.
At the war department this is said to
mean that General Otis haa the officers
for these regiments selected and that
they are now to be filled with enlisted
men. The war department eaya that
the recruits now being enlittol cannot
be u?ed for the volunteer army, although
it would be an easy matter to transfer
these men with their own consent t the
volunteer service if it should be deter
mined to raise additional trooje.
Mad Woman's Fortune.

Third street, Officer Hanrahan found
concealed in a dirty trunk and a valise
a sum of money exceeding $15,000 in
government bonds, gold and bills of large
denominations. The police think that
this small fortune is the property of Mrs.
Walbonger Wackerle, an aged German
woman who is now a patient ac the in

tir e is decidedly worse thap since she
has been in the White House, and the
president will remain in Washington
probably all summer, and will take
very little vacation out of the city.
President McKinley'a projected trip
to the Pacific coast, which had been
looked forward to in anticipation of en
joyment to himself and improvement in
Mrs. McKinley'a condition, has been
abandoned. His trip to Minnesota has
also been abandoned.
The unfavorable turn in Mrs. McKin
ley'a condition is attributed to a cold,
which ehe contracted just before ehe left
Washington. She ia never strong and
this cold seemed to weaken her to such
an extent as to make it advisable to
avoid the exertion which would have
been necessary had ehe remained away
as long as it had been intended.

We say the old way, but really it is a
very common one at the present time
and many dyspeptics .and pbyeicians as
well consider the first step to take in
attempting to cure indigestion is to diet,
either by selecting certain foods and re
jecting others or to greatly diminish
the quantity usually taken; in other
words the starvation plan ia supposed by
many to be the first essential.
The almost certain failure of the
starvation cure has been proven time
and again, but still the moment dyspep
sia makes its appearance a course of
dieting -is at once advised.
All tbisia radically wrong. It is foolish
and unscientific to recommend dieting
to a man suffering from dyspepsia, be

organ, every nerve and every fibre in the
What the dyspeptic wants is abundant
nutrition, which means plenty of good,
wholesome well-cooked food, and some
thing to assist the weak stomach to di
gest it. This is exactly the purpose for
which Stuart'a Dyspepsia Tablets are
adapted and this is the method by which
they cure the worst casea of dyspepsia;
in other words the patient eata plenty
of wholeeome fcod and Stuart'a Dys
pepsia Tablets digests it for him. In
this way the system ia nourished and the
overworked stomach rested, because the
tablets will digest the food whether the
stomach works or cot. One of these

Politicians Have Advised the President
to Put Him Out of the Cabinet.
Washington, June 27. The adminis
tration ia thoroughly disturbed over the
Alger-Pingree affair. Alger waa down
to meet the president aa soon as he ar
rived today, with the intention of show-
ng his utmost concern and friendliness
to the chief executive. Other members
of the cabinet saw the president and
gave him to understand that the latest
developments ought to create a vacancy
in the war department. Several poli
ticians have been in the city, and they,
too, have given strong intimation that
a Republican administration haa little
room for Alger after hia alliance with
Pingree, who is an evident anti-admin
Alger is considerable of a Dulldog, how
ever, and he never struck a job that he
liked any better than secretary of war.
He also must realize it ia probably the
last position he will have, and he wants
to hang on to it as long as be can. There
is no doubt that McKinley ia in a tighter
place than he has been during the ad
ministration, and Alger docs not intend
to leave him by voluntary getting out.
It will take all hia effrontery to remain
when he sees that every man with whom
he associates thinks he ought to get out
and relieve the president of the embar
rassment which ia caused by hia political
alliance. Alger -sill probably find him
self more and more ignored aa secretary
of war and snubbed by every member of
the cabinet; but he won't resign unless
