Washington, Nov. 18.—The general as sembly of the Knights of Labor today unanimously passed the following reso lutions: Whereas, The Cubans are at present engaged In a struggle to achieve their independence against the minions of an alien and tyrannical government, and. Whereas, The development of the con test has made it obvious that the nation’s forces cannot possibly be subdued In any reasonable time, and a further continua tion of the present status will only tend to deepen the general misery all over the island of Cuba; and, Whereas, We .the citizens of the fore most republic In the world, should lit least be willing to see that all men fight ing for the liberty of the land of their nativity and their own deliverance from the bondage of an oppressor, should have a fair and equal chance to meet their opponents in open warfare; there fore, be It Resolved, That the general assembly of the Knights of Labor, representing every section of the country, and all con ditions of humanity, does hereby declare in favor of the recognition of the Cubans as belligerents. The constitution was so amended as to exclude gamblers, lawyers, bankers and brokers, as at present, and also to ex clude all employes engaged in the manu facture of or dealers in intoxicating liquors, but permitting each local as sembly to decide for itself whether it will admit barkeepers, waiters, etc., engaged temporarily in the work of dispensing liquors, but having no connection with the place where employed as proper. TO PUT ON needed flesli, no mat ter how you’ve lost it, take Dr. Pierce’s ^Golden Medical Dis U covery. It works ' wonders. By restor ing the normal ac y tion of the deranged ' organs and functions, it builds the flesli up to a safe and healthy standard—promptly, , pleasantly and. nat urally. The weak, emaciated, thin, pale > mm puny me mauc strong, plump, round and rosy. Noth ing so effective as a strength restorer and flesh maker is known to medical sci ence; this puts on healthy flesh not the fat of cod liver oil and its filthy compounds. It rouses every organ of the body to ac tivity, purifies, enriches and vitalizes the blood so that the body feels refreshed and strengthened. If you are too thin, too weak, too nervous, it may be that the food assimilation is at fault. A certain amount of bile is necessary for the reception of the fat foods in the blood. Too often the liver holds back this element which would help digestion. Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery stimulates, tones up and invig orates the liver, nourishes the blood, and the muscles, stomach and nerves get the rich blood they require.

Sargent St,, Roxbury, Kfntt writes * “ After suffering from dyspepsia and constipation with un told agony for at least 18 mouths, I am more than pleased to say that after using Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery and * Pleasant Pellets ’ for one month, I was entirely cured, and from that day to this I do not kuow, thank God, what even a slight headache is.
