nlilr Merit
A new catarrh cure has recently apnear
ed which so far as tested has lin
successful In curing all forms
of catarrh w nether in the head throat
bronchial tubes or in stomach and ller
The remedy is In tablet form pleasant
and con enlent to tike and no special
Is maintained as to what it con
tains the tablet being a scientific com
bination of Guaiacol Eucalvptol Sangui
naria Hjdrastln and similar valuable and
harmless antiseptics
The safe and effective catarrh cure may
lc found at drug store under name
of Stuarts Catarrh Tablets
Whether the catarrh Is located In the
nose throat bronchial tulics or stomach
the tablets seem to act with equal suc
cess removing the stuffy feeling in head
and nose clearing the mucous membrane
of throat and trachea from catarrhal se
cretions which cause the tickling cough
ing hawking and gagging so annojing
to everj catarrh sufferer
Nasal catarrh generallj leads to ulcera
tion In borne cases to such an extent ns
to the nose entirelj and In mnnv
old cases of catarrh the ljones or the head
become diseased Nasal catarrh graduallj
extends to the throat and bronchial tubes
and orten to the stomach causing
that obstinate trouble catarrh or the
stomach
Catarrh Is a sjstemlc poison inherent
in the blood and local washes douches
salves inhalers and spravs can have no
effect on the real cause of the disease
An Internal which acts upon the
blood Is the only rational treatment and
Stuarts Catarrh Tablets Is the safest of
all Internal remedies as well as the most
convenient and satisfactory from a medi
cal standpoint
Dr Eaton stated tint he had
successfully used Stuarts Catarrh Tab
lets In old chronic enses etn where ul
ceration had extended so far as to destroj
thc septum of the nose He sajs I am
pleasantlv surprised almost everj day by
the excellent results from Stuarts Ca
tarrh Tablets It Is remarkable how
remove the excessive se
cretion and bring about a healthy condi
tion or the mucojs membranes of the
nose tliroit and stom ich
All druggists sell complete treatment of
the tablets at 50 cents and a little ImkiU

AFFILES OF THE DISTRICT
The Attorney- Advice Against the
Cancellation of Taxes
I hi Ground for liciipllcntlon t
CiMiHldi reil siiiiiitl lliiu tit IlinpoNt
of slicx I In Cilim and Other
AVn ite l I xe the Water lower
Andrew B Duvall Attorney for the
District of Columbia jesterdaj sub
mitted to the Commissioners an ad
verse opinion upon the application of
Charles A and Cora T Illnes ror
the cancellation of general taxes for
the j ears 1SS1 1S5 and 11S9 against part
of lot SI and lots 22 and 23 of the sub
division ot Friendship The Attorney
stated that the claim or the applicants
that these taxes should be canceled
should be denied In connection with the
matter Mr Duvall sajs
Because their agent requested bills for
all taxes and assessment against said
from a cleric employed In the
oinee of the Collector of Taxes stating to
him u willingness to taxes then
due or overdue and that said agent was
inrormed said clerk that excepting tho
taxes due for the current jear there
were no unpaid taxes against the
Tile duties of the Collector or Taxes
are prescribed statute and lie is not
required to make searcli or furnish state
ments of unpaid taxes And the Supreme
Court of the District of Columbia held
that his statements and mistakes in re
gard to unpaid taxes could not operate as
an estoppel upon the District ot Columbia
The act or Congress approved May
13 lKt authorizes the Assessor Upon pav
ment of the fee or 50 cents to furnish a
ctrtlfkd statement over his hand and
olliciil seal of all taxes and assessments
but the Collector of Taxes lias no such
authorlt and no mere statement which
lie might make could have the rorce anil
effect of the certificate ot the Assessor
under siid act or Congress In respect to
omitted taxes
flic second ground Tor cancellation Is
the claim that the taxes are not collecti
ble because of the failure on the part of
the District to tile a bill in equitj to en
force its lien for taxes within a reason-
fllilft tlmn utTtix n i i nn - n A 1-
iJSiithatl tnttrlJ1 to be Postponed J ertj was bid off by the District at the tax

The law however does not provide
that the- penalty for not so enforcing the
lien of the taxes bj nilng a bill lu equltj
should operate to release tho Hen for
such taxei
