"When consumption lias got Its destroying grip on a human life It very rarely
lets go, notwithstanding tlie fact that the heartless and unprincipled, throimh aarlce

ufrceted with it.
In Munyon's Remedies, as applied thiougb the agency of Munyon's Life
Chamber, Is found the nearest approach to a consumption cure yet discovered.
Prof. Munyon believes that scientific- research will tin.illv wrest from nature a
cure for consumption. Munyon found a. cure for Bright's disease, almost as de
Itructive of human life as consumption He found another Tor Catarrh,, which, if
not cured, becomes consumption. He found cures for Asthma, Rheumatism, Dyspepsia,
uud many other diseases: why not consumption?
Munyon Know s that he can prolong the li fe of the consumptives and make their
existence far more comfortable thau was thought possible a- few years ago. Kealso
knows that he could save a great portion of all that finally have consumption If
they would only come in tune.

He Is Statistician of the Agricul
tural Department
Heslgnntion Will Take Effect on
July 1-Au Able Official John
TJyde to Succeed Hi in.
Henry A. Robinson, statistician of the
Agricultural Department, lias tendered his
resignation to Secretary Wilson, to tnse
effect on July 1, and It was accepted upon
that understanding. This act of Statis
tician Robinson Mas prompted by a feel
ing on his part that, owing to his Bryan
sympathies, he would not care to serve
under a Republican Administration.
He has Intended resigning for some
time and Secretary "Wilson asked him, so
long as-he intended to resign, to have it
go into effect the end of the fiscal year,
as that -would render it much morecon
venlenl for the department
Mr. Robinson is from Michigan, of -which
State ho was commissioner of labor up
to the first part of 1S93, when Secretary
Morton appointed him to Ills present
His woik in the bureau has been highly
complimented by all thiough whose hand
it lias passed.
Mr. Robinson said last night that be had
no definite plans for the future.
John Hyde, of Nebraska, at present
editor of the Depaitmcnt or Agriculture
Year Book, is to be appointed statistic! in
in Mr. Robinson's pla.ee. Mr. Hyde di
rected the agricultural part of the last
ceisus, and his -work was highly, com
mended by Superintendent of Census Porter
and by other authorities on statistics.
Ho will probably- assume charge of the
office several weeks before the present
statistician's resignation takes effect In
order to become acquainted with the routine
of the bureau.
It is rumored through the department,
however, that Mr. Hyde's appointment
is only temporary, as Secretary Wilson has

Assistant Secretary Found Noth
ing Amiss at the Navy Yard.
He lira mi nod All of the Depart
ments, But Was Partienlurly In
terested in tlio System, Manage
ment and Governing- Rules of tlio
X.nbor Jiii)Iojmuiit Board.
The drums rolled, the trumpets bUri'd,
and the guns boomed as Assistant Secre
tary of the Navy Rooseveltycsterday after
noon entered th e Washln gton navy yard, on
his first tour o inspection In Ms official
capacity. He was accompanied by Capt.
Samson, chief of the Bureau of Ordnance,
Navy Department, and Lieut. Sharp, naval
aid to the Secretary.. Lli.cd up on tie
light of the arched entrance to the yaid
was the guard, and on the left, just bejond
the entrance, was formed a company of
maiincb, sixteen rront double rank, well
sized, well set up, and Avell d tilled in
the new manual of aims, under command
of the officer of the day, Lieut. U. R.
The visitors were met byComraanrtrC.
S. Norton, comuiandantof the yard, and
the following officeis: Commander O'Nell,
T)r Mm mlon, Lieut Mooie, Lieut. Badger,
Lieut, Nicholson, Lieut. Greene, and En
sign Williams. After the usual official
compliments the visitors, accompanied by
Commandant Norton, Commander O'Nell,
who Is in cliargc of the gun foundry, a
Timed reporter, and anlmmaculate, though
somewhat obese and venerable orderly,
started on the tour of Inspection.
The Assistant Secretary in the course
of Ins conversation Btated that tie
hoped to inspect many of the yards of the
country "I wish to see the gun shop
fir-t," he said.
The gun shop was, therefore, first vis
ited ami Commander O'Neil essayed to en
lighten the honorable Secretary into the
mysteitcs of gun making. Immediately
within the entrance was a huge thlrteen
Inch gun in which Secretary Roosevelt
si-cmed much interested Commander
O'Neil explained to him that this, the larg
est piece of ordnance used In the country,
was foity feet long, sixty-eight tons in
weight, used a CCO-pouud charge of pow
dei and would hurl a projectile weighing
1,100 pounds thirteen or fourteen miles
A mKsu from this gun, Capt O'Neil stat
ed, "could smash any armor afloat.'
The movement of the giant traveling
cranes was then shown These wonderful
machines raise 110 tons of weight and
move then from point to point as though
handling a cork.
The mechanism of a four-inch breech
loading gun was next explained to the
Secretary and be amused himself with
an Investigation of it by opening and clos
ing the breech.
Tram the gun shop the party visited the
gus carriage shop, the breech mechanism
shop, the foundry and board of labor em
ployment, In the order named.
In the labor-employment board room,
Secretary Roosevelt seemed to take es
penal delight in Investigating the system,
management and governing rules of tha
office At his request, the meaning of
class "A" applicants and dam "B" ap
plicants was explained to him. and he
was informed that the former class cm
braced veterans of the Army and Navy
and former employes of the board who
decired employment, and the latter con
tained names of applicants who had had
neither military service nor yard ex
perience, irit who had mechanical skill.
Class "B," It was explained, stood prac
tlrally no chance of appointment.
The ex-Clvi' Service CoinmibMoncr then
put the young cn&ign in charge and the
officers pres?ut through a most thorough
cro examination The Naval powers that
be were, however, evidently well Informed
as to the idiosyncrasies and Inquisitive
nature of the Secretary, and the aforesaid
ensign passed a -very ci editable examina
tion. Only once was he found wanting.
He had e plained that applicants were
numbeicd as applications were received,
and thus taken up when a vacancy oc
curred or labor wo s needed. Veterans were
given first choice and former yard em
ployes second choice. "Suppose," said the
Secretaiy, "four applicants were to appear
in the office at once. How would you then
discriminate?" The ensign was silent.
"Have you hid no such" trouble?"
"Never, since I have been here," replied
the ensign.
"How long have you been here?" queried
the Secretary.
"I only relieved my predecessor today:
but I was here for rive months last year."
And then the idea took possession of
The Times man, that the sagacious bea
man, had detailed for duty in the office
that day, an ensign, who was particularly
well informed on the yard regulations.
The Secretary further wished to have
a statement showing what percentage of
men, who were on the rolls on March 4,
1803, were on the rolls on March 4,
1897, and he was promised the report
within forty-eight hours.
After some further examination and.
questions, the Secretary and his party
started for the gate; the company and
guard turned out to do honor and salute;
the Hon. Theodore declined an invitation
of the commandant to run into his home
and "have something," and Immediately
afterward ho and his party entered an
open cable car for his uptown trip.
