; f iiand as
regards ihc
. ganti .stature who had the honor of
hying presenu?d to th njp-ror at the
, g:and manoeuvre headquarier. His
j name is Mazumi Yamashita and he be-
i longs to the Third Regiment of the
Nagoya Field Artillery. It was about
March lat that Oohjnrl Watanabe, mi
f litary attache to t lie emperor, was sent
j to Nagoya to inspect the soldiers be
I longing to the Third division and in
his report on his return there was a
paragraph about a soldier of gigantic
stature and enormous strength, who
was besides most assiduous in his ser
vice and e::.-mplary in his general eon
duct. This report had not been for-
conclusion of the grand manoeuvres,
inquired of the chief military attache,
Lieutenant-General Okazawa, whether
or not the soldier participated in tue
grand manoeuvres. Thereupon he was
hunted up in the Third regiment of the
said field artillery, and was immediate
ly brought to headquarters, where he
was made to go through arms drills
and other forms of calisthenics, Col
Watanabe giving orders, before a win-
i dow behind which his emperor was
! watching him. The exercises conclud
ed Lieutenant-General Okazawa called
! the soldier into his room and impres
! sivcly told him that nothing could
-
compare to tne nonor v. men nau jusc
been irranted in being hummoned so
near the presence of his majesty, and
that therefore he should bear the occa
sion always in mind and attend to his
dutLes with all his heart as it would
be a great calamity if he were to be
found misbehaving himself at some fu
ture time when his majesty again
miiriit inquire about him. Just at this
moment viscount Tanaka, the minister
of the imperial household, stepped into
the room and after telling the soldier
what a gracious regard had been
shown him that day, added that the
great honor attached not only to him
self, but also to his family, his prede
cessors as well as progeny, and also to
his own regiment, and handed him a
box of cakes, remarking that the con
fectionery was to have been offered
to the emperor on the proceeding day
but that it was now given to him, so
he should hurry back home with it and
share the contents with his parents.
The soldier was overjoyed and even
moved to tears: and while in that con
dition he was led away by Sergeant
Major Magosaburo Nakamura. Private
Yamashita enlisted in Dceeinber last
and is now twenty-two years of age.
His muscular strength is such that he
can carry a field piece on his shoulders
and climb up mountains where horses
are not available. lie regularly re
ceives two men's rations of food and
his uniforms, etc. are specially made to
fit him.
Mil. CANNON LIBERAL.
The Chairman of the House Commit-
tee on Appropriations, Joseph G. Can
non, is reported as saying: "lhe oi
unteers who enlisted for war can hard
ly be asked to stay in the service for
mero garrison or police duty in the
various islands. There must then be
an enlargement of the Regular Army.
1 imagine that at least 50,00 men will
be required for Cuba alone. A few
thousand will also be necessary in
Puerto Rico. I believe no sensible man
thinks we shall give up the Philippines,
and several thousand men will have
to be kept there for a long time, to
maintain order and firmly establish the
new system of government fixed upon
by the United States. I do no: see how
we shall be able to get along with less
than 100,000 men for some time to
come. It goes without the saying that
the Navy will grow commensurately
with the Army and for like reasons."
SPANISH RIFLES.
i The Ordnance Department of tiie
! Army is preparing to call for bids on
! the Mauser rifles captured at Santiago,
: which have been pronounced unfit for
; use in the Army. It is the intention
: of the department to sell these ritles
! either in small numbers or in large. No
difficulty is looked for in disposing of
; them, as many communications have
I been received already from private
I parties relative to this matter. Curio
! dealers will undoubtedly buy the great
i er part of the guns and resell them at
I a profit.

VAS!i!XdT()N. li. .a 1.". Calvb.i S.
I5ri-e wa a native f Ohio anil was
born in 1 S 4 ."" . He was the son of a
Presbyterian minister. Three years
before the civil war he entered Miami
university, and in 1SG1 he enlisted in
a university company for the year.
He served in West Virginia in the
Ninety-sixth Ohio infantry. In IS Co
h' graduated from th- university, and
.tfter teaching school a few months he
b-aatme captain of a company in the
One Hundred and High: a Ohio, and
served to the end of the war.
In the winter of 1 Mo, Mr. Hrice was
elected United States senator to suc
ceed Henry R. Jayne. and took his s,'u
March 4, JSiU. In the same year Price
became a prominent figure. He was
soon made a member of tlu Democra
tic steering committee, and became al
so a member of the committee on ap
propriations. Mr. Price seldom spoki?
in the senate, but was a close observer
of everything that was going on ami
was always deep in the councils of the
party.
Mr. Price served six years . in the
senate, being succeeded by Joseph 11.
Foraker. In Washington he occupied
the Corcoran house and gave lavish en
tertainments which became worldwide.
Since his retirement from the senate
he has been in Washington very little,
but occupying himself for the most
part with business affairs in New
York.
Until the Democratic party adopted
free silver as a cardinal principle Mr.
Price was a lender in his party in Ohio,
but after that he did not take an active
part in politics.
INTERIOR OF LUZON.
Paymr. W. P. Wilcox, and Naval
Cadet L. It.' Sargenc, U. S. N., who arc
attached to the monitor Monadnoek,
hav-e returned to MauiU after an inter
esting six weeks' tour in the interior
of the island of Luzon. They crossed
the provinces of Pang-Asinan and Nue
va Keija, and traveled over the moun
tains. The scenery is described as
magnificent, and the roads execrable.
The officers visited the watershed of
the Rio Grande and Cazayan. They
say its fertility is marvelous. The
towns are quiet and prosperous, the
plains were highly cultivated and the
mountains were splendidly timbered.
The rivers were; mostly without bridges
and are almost impassable during the
rainy season.
TWO
POINTED QUESTIONS AN
SWERED.
What is the use of making a better
article than your competitor if you can
not get a better price for it?
Ans. As there is no difference in
the price the. public will buy only the
better, so that while our profits may
be smaller on a single sale they will
bo much greater in the aggregate.
Hovv- can ycu get the public to know
your make is the best?
If both articles are brought promi
nently before the public both are cer
tain to be tried and the public will
very quickly pass judgment on them
and use only the better one.
This explains the large sale on
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. The
people have been using it for years
and have found that it can always be
depended upon. They may occasional
ly take up with some fashionable nov
elty put forth with exaggerated
claims, but ar-e certain to return to;
the one remedy that they know to be '
reliable, and for coughs, colds and j
